Since then, he has taken on a new role: whistle-blowing, truth-telling reformer. And in telling his own story, Luchs pulls back the curtain on the real economy of college football: how agents win players legally and otherwise, the staggering sums colleges make from an unpaid workforce, the shortfalls of supposed full-ride scholarships, and the myth of a college education given to scholarship jocks. Including new information about major players and scandalized programs such as USC, Auburn, and Ohio State, this book pulls no punches. It's a stunning and necessary listen for anyone who loves the game, and the first step toward fixing a broken system.

I have been an avid football fan for many years so to hear alot of the dirty secrets College Football and its overally primed egos have is no surprise but very entertaining. This was well told and inspriing in its own way. It carries a very distinct message about the game and where it is headed if we aren't careful. I enjoyed it quite a lot.
