Last week Indiana’s Birch Bayh passed away. Did you realize that he is known as the Father of Title IX? In 1972 Bayh authored a bill that included provisions for what is now known as Title IX. Title IX requires equal opportunities for men & women in sports.The biggest thing you will notice is the prime weekend dates for ball games. When girls began playing basketball, for example, 90+ percent of their games were played between Monday and Thursday nights. Boys games were almost exclusively played on Friday and Saturday nights. Now, the EIAC is required to have the exact same number of boys and girls basketball games occur on weekend dates.In college, money must be allocated to girls’ programs just like it is the boys’ programs. This includes things like scholarships, coaches’ endorsements, and the like.I am in no way opposed to the equal opportunity. What I would really like to see is the boy/girl double headers which would eliminate some of the odd game dates that now occur. Who wants to go to a ball game at noon on Saturday?read more
“Big thanks to Roy Hodgson for selecting me and showing his faith and support, appreciate it.” It has been suggested Rooney’s club could be less happy about a player struggling for fitness being involved with England. But coach Hodgson told Sky Sports News: “The only problem is that my selection of him could be used as a wedge between David Moyes and myself. “There’s not going to be any wedges put between us two, we’ve been friends for a very long time. David understands fully the situation. “David knows what we have in mind and unfortunately we just have to accept that there’ll be some opinions on the subject and that people will try to drive wedges, but it’s wrong to do so. “The situation is quite simply we have four very important games coming up in September and October. “I haven’t seen the players since we left Brazil three months ago. It’s so important for me to have them around me now, the ones who are going to be important in September and October. “Even if they can’t play a full part in the game or might not play any part, I want them there for these two or three days because we are a team.” Roy Hodgson is adamant his selection of Wayne Rooney for England’s friendly against Scotland will not cause problems between club and country. Press Association Rooney’s Old Trafford future remains unclear, with Chelsea’s interest no secret. But Gary Neville, Rooney’s former United team-mate and a member of Hodgson’s coaching staff, told Sky Sports News: “It’ll have no effect whatsoever on the England squad. “I’ve played with Wayne Rooney for many years and I’ve been coach with England for the last year and a half. I’ve never seen him give anything other than 100 per cent in every single training session and it’s an insult to suggest he would have any negative effect on any England squad. “He’s not that kind of lad. He’s a good lad, a great player, a fantastically important player – not just for Manchester United but for England – and we’ll just concentrate on looking after all the players and Wayne Rooney will come along and do his very best as he always does.” Rooney has not featured in Manchester United’s pre-season campaign due to hamstring and shoulder injuries but will report for duty with Hodgson’s squad for next Wednesday’s game. The 27-year-old took to his official Facebook page on Friday night to thank the Three Lions boss, writing: “Can’t wait to join up with the England squad and hopefully play in a competitive match, they always are against Scotland. read more
Silverware evaded Pellegrini’s side in 2014-15 and their meek defence of the Barclays Premier League title saw them finish eight points behind eventual champions Chelsea. But Kompany is hopeful that Sterling’s acquisition can help bridge the gap when it comes to challenging for honours next term. “It’s massive for us,” he told City’s official website www.mcfc.co.uk. “The biggest thing is that you’ve seen Sterling, especially the way he played the season before last, and he was one of the main reasons, along with (Luis) Suarez, that Liverpool played so well. “It became more difficult for them when Suarez left but what you will find is that he will have this kind of structure at City already – I mean, we’ve got Kun (Sergio Aguero) up front, we’ve got (Wilfried) Bony, we’ve got so many players who will be able to link up with him; we will be able to make him better as well. “We have great quality in the team but you can’t compete nowadays if you don’t improve every year. “Other teams improve, we need to improve and getting him puts us one step closer to being this team which can win trophies again – it’s very important for us.” Kompany is particularly grateful that the only time he will now have to face the pacey Sterling is in training. The 20-year-old England international completed his big-money move from Liverpool to City on Tuesday and has already arrived Down Under as Manuel Pellegrini’s men fine tune their preparations ahead of the new campaign. Sterling’s transfer, which could be worth up to £49million to his former employers, has been hailed as “very important” by City defender Kompany. Press Association Raheem Sterling joined up with his new Manchester City team-mates on their pre-season tour of Australia on Thursday and captain Vincent Kompany believes the forward can help deliver them trophies. As an opponent, the Belgian found Sterling’s willing nature one of his biggest attributes. “He’s quick, he’s very unpredictable; he’s shown that he has especially great determination,” Kompany added. “You play against so many players with great quality but it’s the fact that he’s always willing to put in the extra yard. “That makes it that extra bit difficult when you have a player with quality who is not shy to run and put his body on the line – that’s a special player.” read more
