AbstractThe tensions between college academics are nothing new. Academics criticize college athletic standards for lowering academic admission standards for athletes, for giving athletes preferential treatment, and for the huge amount of money spent on the programs. Supporters of current practices in regard to intercollegiate athletics argue that winning teams increase donations from alumni and that intercollegiate athletics is excellent public relations.
