"A manifesto for college faculty concerned with maintaining academic integrity in the face of the burgeoning college sport industry. Porto's creative synthesis of significant scholarly work on college sport over the past decade, coupled with his insights into how Title IX and shrinking athletic budgets are challenging the way athletic departments do business, are likely to convince even cynics that athletic reform is possible, if not inevitable. Porto's love of amateur college sport and his desire to maintain sports as an integral part of the educational process come through on every page, as does his grasp of economic and legal realities related to collegiate sports. If someone only has time to read one book on current controversies in collegiate sport and how to deal with them, this is definitely the book of choice."-Allen L. Sack, Professor of Management and Sociology, University of New Haven, Coauthor of College Athletes for Hire
Deep-seated problems plague college sports. Title IX can be the catalyst for dramatic reforms that remedy these problems.
