So I asked around tonight and here was the general consensus:
You are all right about the title 9 being applicable to womens NCAA.
As for collegiate mens: Men's college bowling has always been considered a "club" sport, and thus unable to applicably participate in the NCAA. One of the big reasons collegiate teams and players both don't all want to go to NCAA is they would no longer be eligible to win prize money in tournaments. This goes in both individual and team events. I think even bowling in an event like the USBC Team USA trials merits a cash prize for the top few. That would be against every sanctioned NCAA imaginable.
Basically I believe that players would miss opportunities to bowl in some extra tournaments and even PBA events if they were sanctioned NCAA.
I'm sure there are a number of other lingering issues or whatnot...I'll dive into this more with Eric Pierson. His son is bowling as a freshman at Robert Morris University.
