K.C. STAR TAKES EXTENSIVE LOOK INTO LIFE AT THE NCAA
Published October 7, 1997
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).
