    This is dumb, but if Title IX clearly states that players are prohibited from having relations with each other, then the players broke the rule. No passion or emotion in this one if there is a clear rule. Abe Lincoln saw this day coming when were no longer ruled by reason and logic but instead allowed passion and emotion to sway interpretation of laws. Again, this is dumb, dumb, dumb, but if it's a rule...

    Title IX doesn't state that the players shouldn't have relationships, it was just a team rule. This is what Title IX says:

    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.

    thanks - I read the linked article way too quickly and thought this "rule" was tied to Title IX. Common sense should have told me otherwise. Dumb.
