The series of nine stories focuses on the major changes in college athletics. “Academics and leaders of the reform movement have debated and lobbied for two decades about the need for change.” But the magnitude of college athletics suggests a change is impossible. This series focuses on, “the biggest and best football conference, looked at the money brought in and the issues raised by the rush to be successful, the disparity between coaching salaries and the scholarship money afforded the athletes, what top athletes might be worth in an open market, and the creative efforts universities go to in order to fund athletic programs.”
