              This week, the K.C. STAR runs a six-part investigative
         study on the NCAA. In introducing "Money Games," STAR editor
         Mark Zeiman wrote the paper's "intention in studying the
         NCAA was to exhaustively examine an association with
         enormous national clout and significant local ties."  The
         report took 18 months to complete and features the work of
         three reporters. In May, the NCAA announced it was
         relocating from Overland Park, KS, to Indianapolis, IN, but
         Zieman wrote the report "took shape before the selection of
         Indianapolis, and although reporting has continued since the
         decision, our findings remain unaltered.  If the NCAA had
         chosen to stay in Kansas City, what you read this week would
         have been the same" (K.C. STAR, 10/5). 
              TOPICS COVERED: Part I of "Money Games" is called
         "Money: Revenues Dominate The College Sports World."  Part
         II: "Perks: 'Amateurism' Pays Top Dollar For Some: NCAA
         Permeated With Perks."  Part III: "Enforcement: Ruling With
         A Soft Touch: NCAA Backs Off Harshest Penalties."  Part's
         IV, V and VI will cover issues regarding Safety, Women's
         Athletics and Classroom Priorities (K.C. STAR, 10/7).
