"A New Season provides a timely prescription for the reform of college sports. I share Brian Porto's view that the participation model will eventually prevail on our college campuses."-Tom McMillen, former college All-American and professional basketball player and Member of Congress

"Well researched and delivered in an engaging manner, this book is a worthy contribution to the on-going dialogue regarding college sport, its present state, and future direction."-Ellen J. Staurowsky, Ed.D., Professor & Chair, Department of Sport Management & Media, Ithaca College Coauthor of College Athletes for Hire

"Fascinating, informative, and engagingly written. The reader is treated to an extremely broad range of divergent points of view masterfully woven into a cogent, in-depth view of the world of intercollegiate sport as it is and as it might be. If viewed only as a literature review, the book is a delight in its coverage of both the popular and academic presses. But the book offers a great deal more to the reader. It is thought provoking, interesting, and, in a phrase, an overall 'good read.'"-Linda Jean Carpenter, Ph.D., J.D. Attorney at Law and Professor Emerita, Brooklyn College

"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
