Much of the NCAA rules come down to interpretation...they say very clearly..."we want you to have the leeway at your institution to make decisions. If you have questions or concerns, come to us. If there are problems or if things get reported to us...then we will come to you".
Then the male athletes should have sued the school. It can be done, and they likely would have won. I went to a school that required all US males who had not served in the military to take ROTC for two years. Someone finally sued on the basis of sex discrimination, and won. I'm all for title IX, but it should work both ways.
