Well this is not the place to really get into this but as the has been talked about in other threads ad nauseaum, in order to comply with title IX, there is no way you can have 85 scholies for football without major cuts in mens programs to have an equal number of womens scholies. Tennis is actually lucky it gets any scholies on the mens side as many programs in mens wrestling, gymnastics, swimming and most olympic type sports were cut altogether at many schools.
