Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Little is new in this searching look at the American sports scene--from Little Leagues to the pros--but this book's message carries special impact because it comes from a Maryland congressman who was a college basketball All-American, a Rhodes Scholar, an Olympic athlete and an NBA player for 11 years. With freelancer Coggins ( The Lady Is the Tiger ), McMillen takes sharp aim at college sports and the NCAA, which he sees as joining forces to grab television money while treating athletes like peons--exploiting them and then tossing them aside without degrees. He argues that organized youth sports exist only to give adults pleasure, and criticizes the U.S. government for its failure to propagandize physical fitness for the general public, and shows how women have been euchered out of control of women's college sports. Though McMillen has little encouraging to say, he concludes by offering remedies for many of these ills. Photos not seen by PW. (May)
Library Journal
McMillen, a U.S. Congressman from Maryland and former all-American basketball player, has written a book that is sad to read--not just because of the degeneration and decay of college athletics it describes, but because the circumstances it portrays have made the book necessary. It offers a litany of the abuse endemic in big-time college athletics today. Football and men's basketball are the primary culprits, but the process of recruitment, academic eligibility, and big-money television are also responsible for the contradictory term ``student-athlete.'' Who is responsible for the burlesque McMillen describes? There are plenty of targets: television, the NCAA, colleges, coaches, and the athletes themselves. The list of abuses is long and sickening, and McMillen's recommendations may not be enough. This important book should be in most libraries.-- William O. Scheeren, Hempfield Area H.S. Lib., Greensburg, Pa.
