    OK, we get it. You don't like club sports.

    Why blame Title IX for no NCAA baseball team? The argument doesn't work with so many other schools having teams. It's not a factual statement.

    Club baseball has to be on the lower rung of club sports. Ultimate frisbee gets more attention.

    Blame Title IX because in many respects it's true. Rather than adding sports or opportunities for women, a lot of schools have cut men's sports to get into compliance with the law. Baseball and wrestling have been severely hit across the country.

    And with current budget issues, those programs seem to always be first on the chopping block. The recent mess at Cal is just one example.

    WHy blame Title IX? Because it's 100 percent true. CSU used to have an NCAA baseball team but had to axe it because of Title IX. Why wouldn't it be to blame?

    Plus, if ultimate did get more attention, than club baseball, I could have been a well respected athlete in college.

    I'm guessing you're not real familiar with sports in the region because club baseball, hockey and lacrosse receive a lot of attention and usually draw larger crowds than non-revenue NCAA sports (other than volleyball, of course).

    If seven of the nine MWC schools field baseball teams, you can't blame Title IX. You can blame alumni and the community for not supporting the sport.

    I'm familiar with club sports. The hockey club usually got a few Russians to play, but the players hardly set foot in class and usually dropped out after a semester. One guy honestly thought he had NHL talent (bless his heart).

    You really think college baseball programs survive on support from the community? Or any of the sports that bring in little or no revenue?

    Whether you like it or not, Title IX is the reason for no more NCAA baseball at CSU. The club team did get a new stadium built a couple of years ago and moved away from the old on-campus NCAA field.

    CU doesn't have an NCAA team either, nor does Wyoming and Denver. Northern Colorado's DI team is relatively new. Starting next season, the MWC will be tied for the smallest baseball conference at six.

    Some do, at least in my neck of the woods.

    They either survive on the backs of the major revenue-producing sports or the money comes from donors.

    That made me laugh...

    There are some states that don't have baseball at the local college because of Title IX and weather reasons. I'm guessing that's partially the case at the Colorado schools.
