Changing the Playbook : How Power, Profit, and Politics Transformed College Sports
by Howard P. Chudacoff


Overview - In Changing the Playbook, Howard P. Chudacoff delves into the background and what-ifs surrounding seven defining moments that transformed college sports.

  • Title IX's transformation of women's athletics;
  • the cheating, eligibility, and recruitment scandals that tarnished college sports in the 1980s and 1990s;
  • the ongoing controversy over paying student athletes a share of the enormous moneys harvested by schools and athletic departments.  Read more...
