College Sports: Money vs. Opportunity
Schroeder, Ashley
Online Submission
The media overwhelms the United States with advertising of athletic competition. Every March, one cannot help but hear the results of the annual postseason college basketball tournament entitled "March Madness." The NCAA helps establish bylaws for each sport and eligibility requirements for college athletes; and furthermore, the colleges that are involved with the NCAA are divided up into Division I, II, or III, with Division I schools being the largest and Division III being the smallest. Regardless of how college sports are portrayed as a college's major source of operating revenue, there is evidence that athletic participation at all three divisional levels is a valuable component of a student's college experience.
