NCAA football is big business. Every Saturday millions of people file into
massive stadiums or tune in on television as “athlete-students” give
everything they’ve got to make their team a success. Billions of dollars now
flow into the game. But what is the true cost? The players have no share in
the oceans of money. And once the lights go down, the glitter doesn’t shine so
brightly. Filled with mind-blowing details of major NCAA football scandals,
with stops at Ohio State, Tennessee, Texas Tech, Missouri, BYU, LSU, Texas A&M
and many more, The System explores and exposes the complex, and perhaps
broken, machine that churns behind the glamour of college football.
With a New Afterword.
