Another cost to misguided anti-discrimination policies. Title IX has forced many colleges to cancel or cut back sports programs for boys, such as wrestling. Now many colleges have discovered that many more boys than girls want try out for college sports, so the NY Times says that they have abolished tryouts! The term walk-on refers to a college player who made the team as a result of a tryout. They have been rare for a long time in the big sports like Division I football. Now they are getting a lot rarer.
