Episode 2 – Who Pays? The Funding, Growth and Quality of College Athletics

In this episode we talk with Dr. David Ridpath about the growth and future of college athletics, the sometimes perverse sources of funding in athletics and how the focus often has little to do with appropriately developing athletes. While we ran out of time at the end, Dr. Ridpath also provides a glimpse into some possible fixes and several options for developing alternatives to the system of college athletics we are familiar with today.
