|Summary, etc.:|| "Indentured tells the dramatic story of a loose-knit group of rebels who decided to fight the hypocrisy of the NCAA, which blathers endlessly about the purity of its "student-athletes" while exploiting many of them: The ones who get injured and drop out because their scholarships have been revoked. The ones who will neither graduate nor go pro. The ones who live in terror of accidentally violating some obscure rule in the four-hundred-page NCAA rulebook,"--Amazon.com.
The National Collegiate Athletic Association has come under fire. Fans have begun to realize that the athletes involved in men's basketball and football are little more than indentured servants. The ocean of cash generated by these college sports enriches schools, conferences, coaches, TV networks, and apparel companies-- everyone except those who give their blood and sweat to entertain the fans. Nocera and Strauss tell the dramatic story of a loose-knit group of rebels who decided to fight the hypocrisy of the NCAA.
