Overview

The most critical issues in intercollegiate sport are examined here from a variety of perspectives. The same general challenges, in varying forms, have confronted those responsible for intercollegiate sport from 19890 to the present day. The time has come to reexamine these problems in the light of new research (such as the Knight Foundation Commission on Intercollegiate Athletes) and new analyses; and to review our old solutions to see where they should be adapted, where maintained, and where abandoned. Part of the mission of New Game Plan for College Sport is to act as a forum for conflicting opinions on how to improve our college sports enterprise. It is not a theoretical piece, but instead relies on the wisdom and experience of those who have had significant roles in sport to discuss how far we may have come from the ideals of sport and what we still can do to correct our course. The analyses presented here, prepared by experts on the issues, explore such essential topics as the commercialization of sport; race and gender; legal issues; gambling; performance enhancing drugs; and the academic peril faced by too many student athletes.
