The Closer: Preview of Schooled: The Price of College Sports

Tonight, Tuesday, October 8th, 2013, a specialty, one-of-a-kind documentary is premiering in New York City. Schooled: The Price of College Sports, an EPIX Original Documentary, is a "comprehensive look at the business, history and culture of big-time college football and basketball in America."

Some of the contributors and those interviewed include: Houston Texans’ running back Arian Foster, Emmy-winning Sportscaster Bob Costas, ESPN analyst Jay Bilas, Joe Nocera of The New York Times, and Dave Zirin of The Nation.
Check back on the blog tomorrow for a recap of the film as myself and a few other Drexel Sport Management students have been lucky enough to be invited, along with Dr. Ellen Staurowsky, to attend the premiere, view the film, and the following panel and discussion on the hot topics in college sport today!
