Description
 
Murray Sperber (au). Explores the profound & tragic impact of big-time intercollegiate athletics on undergrad. educ. Explodes cherished myths about college sports, particularly at “Big-time U’s,” the large public research univ. with men’s football & basketball teams playing at the top of the NCAA. Many schools no longer give the majority of their undergrads. a meaningful educ. Instead they offer a meager & dangerous substitute: the party scene surrounding college sports that Sperber calls “beer & circus.” Details the pernicious role of the media, looking to tap into the lucrative student market, raising the concern of the epidemic of student binge drinking, which results from these complex factors.
