Description
Sack and Staurowsky show that the NCAA formally abandoned amateurism in the 1950s and passed rules in subsequent years that literally transformed scholarship athletes into university employees. In addition, by purposefully fashioning an amateur mythology to mask the reality of this employer-employee relationship, the NCAA has done a disservice to student-athletes (especially women) and to higher education in general. This is a provocative analysis for anyone interested in college sports in America and its subversion of traditional educational and amateur principles.
