    Title IX states the following:

    "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."
    Title Ix affects college athletics in three ways:

    1. Athletic Scholarships: Women athletes have to get athletic scholarship dollars that are proportional to their sports participation. This basically means that if there is an equal number of female and male athletes then the scholarship budget allocation must be split equal

    2. Participation: women athletes have to be provided an equal and equitable opportunity to take part in college sports as men. This does not mean identical sports but the emphasis is on an equal opportunity to play.

    3. Other Benefits: Equal treatment in relation to:

    Scheduling of practice times and games.
    Provision of supplies and equipment.
    Sports Coaching.
    Daily and travel allowances.
    Training facilities and medical services.
    Promotions and publicity.
    Athletic recruitment.
    Support services.
    Locker rooms.
    Practice and competitive facilities.

    How does any of this apply to college football players getting paid?

    Starting a College Football Player's Union is a private matter.

    Women have the same right to start their own player's union and negotiate a contract with the school or the Television Networks.
