UNI recently cut its baseball team, which is obviously a sad development.  But at least they are open about the role that Title IX played in the decision:

UNI could not drop a women’s sport because of gender equity issues.

Other reports on the many cuts that are happening around the country leave out that key fact, as if men’s teams are bearing the brunt of budget cuts out of mere coincidence.  The public needs to understand the role that Title IX plays in athletics programming decisions, otherwise we’ll never get the common sense reforms that we so desperately need.
