Normally, I’m pretty proud of my alma mater

But with all my interest in Title IX reform and legitimizing opportunities and sports in college athletics, looking at the front splash page of ODUsports.com made me sick in my stomach.

Let’s just outright admit you’re looking for athletes. This is extremely common (getting athletes to fill roster spots, rather than recruiting those who WANT to compete) … although I’ve never seen a school so blatant about trying to get more people to come out.

You don’t see this type of ad for men’s sports, which typically cut a ton of walk-ons for gender quotas.
