Chudacoff, Howard, Professor of American History

Changing the Playbook: How Power, Profit, and Politics Transformed College Sports
Author: Howard Chudacoff, George L. Littlefield Professor of American History; Professor of Urban Studies
Publisher: University of Illinois Press; Pub. Date: December 2015; Subject: Academic; Sports;

"In Changing the Playbook, Howard P. Chudacoff delves into the background and what-ifs surrounding seven defining moments that transformed college sports. These changes involved fundamental issues--race and gender, profit and power--that reflected societal tensions and, in many cases, remain pertinent today:
--the failed 1950 effort to pass a Sanity Code regulating payments to football players;
--the thorny racial integration of university sports programs;
--the boom in television money;
--the 1984 Supreme Court decision that settled who could control skyrocketing media revenues;
--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.

A thought-provoking journey into the whos and whys of college sports history, Changing the Playbook reveals how the turning points of yesterday and today will impact tomorrow.”--publisher description
