    In an interesting side note, I recently read that famed wrestler (and now-foe of the IOC) Dan Gable felt that Title IX robbed his schools’ wrestling programs of money and would later ask political candidates seeking his endorsement only one question: Do you support Title IX? He is most definitely a single-issue voter!

But Accredited universities are finding loopholes that need closing.
