A Shelf Awareness Best Book of the Year
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.

Needs an Audiobook
This book should prove very popular. Excerpts are wonderful. Needs an audiobook for those on the go to college football games on weekends!
Easily one of the best books I have read, and I'm not even a college football fan. Highly recommended.
