PERSPECTIVES: Villanova Prof Says Universities Need To Take More Responsibility For Cleaning Up College Sports

Prof. Rick Eckstein concludes that the NCAA gets scapegoated for higher education’s failures. Read his take from Salon.

“Universities are convinced that they only need one more “fix” to reach intercollegiate sports nirvana: just one more new facility, one more high-profile coach, one more no-work course and one more entertainment complex to attract top recruits. But the athletics arms race keeps spiraling, and higher education keeps moving farther away from its educational mission.”
