Overview

Kentucky's Domain of Power, Greed and Corruption by Betty Boles Ellison

College athletics are all about multi-million-dollar programs, billion-dollar television contracts, corporate control and cronyism.

Six years of solid academic research stand behind the facts revealed in this book.

Referring to college athletics as amateur sports is as archaic as football's flying wedge that was outlawed almost a century ago. College athletics are all about multi-million-dollar programs, billion-dollar television contracts, corporate control and cronyism. Power greed and corruption have turned the top athletic programs into money-making machines controlled as much by people outside the program as by university presidents and athletic directors.

Few, if any, books written about college athletics closely examine the behind the scenes deal making, how lucrative contracts are awarded and the favored few who benefit. Kentucky's Domain of Power, Greed and Corruption reveals how and why sports decisions were made at the University of Kentucky, one of the nation's top programs, how they were influenced by powerful elements that profited, sometimes by questionable legal and ethical tactics from these actions. Six years of solid academic research stand behind the facts revealed in this book.
