Needless to say, I am a big fan of Title 9. I realize that many people aren't but that's not a concern of mine as there is no danger of it changing.
The point is that you are putting the cart before the horse. Only because of Title IX is there a problem with the number of "men's scholarships" or football scholarships, so it is misleading to say that the cause of programs such as tennis being cut is football. The root cause is Title IX.
