Provide Comments to NCAA President's Blog

Many of you have already began flooding NCAA President Myles Brand's blog with comments about Ohio University athletics. Last week, President Brand discussed the problematic issue of universities cutting men's sports to comply with Title IX. Listen to his conversation here.

I think using the NCAA as an outlet for our concerns is important. The NCAA should have been contacted by OU during the months before they made the difficult decision. The NCAA openly offers to work with universities that are considering eliminating men's sports to comply with Title IX. Yet, OU chose not to use the NCAA's help, and instead made a horrible decision, without output from anyone outside Peden Tower or the Athletics Standing Committee and President McDavis.

If anyone knows how to make OU look bad and repel alumni, its Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt.
