"Ethics Shock."
Knefelkamp, L. Lee
AAHE Bulletin, v42 n6 p9-11 Feb 1990
Four books focusing on ethical issues in collegiate sports are reviewed: "Paterno by the Book,""Personal Fouls,""Never Too Young to Die: The Death of Len Bias," and "Rules of the Game: Ethics in College Sport." The themes of academic standards, student responsibility, the coach's role and responsibilities, the need for reform in college athletics programs, sex discrimination, and racism are discussed briefly, and the extent to which the books address those problems is examined. Requirements for reform are outlined, including administrative insistence on ethical conduct in the athletic programs, board willingness to remove administrators and athletic directors who do not provide ethical oversight, acceptance of responsibility by all parts of the academic community, and facing racism and sexism and all their manifestations in college sports.
