Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Games Colleges Play: Scandal and Reform in Intercollegiate Athletics (Paperback)
Great look into the world of college athletics that you don't see on ESPN.

Gives the readers a real look at what goes on; what's really involved in the world of college sports and the "student athlete".

Great reading.

You think that college athletics have become more show than competition? Well, read this book and come away with what really goes on. Excellent read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great college sports book, November 8, 2007
This review is from: Games Colleges Play: Scandal and Reform in Intercollegiate Athletics (Paperback)
The book offers a great read on the history of intercollegiate athletics. The specific stories about universities and conferences allow the reader to connect to what is current in the world of college athletics. It is gives a good story of what was going on behind the scenes. It is a good book for policies concerning college athletics.
