In college football, unsportsmanlike conduct can get you thrown o the eld. Racial
slurs and swinging punches can get you ejected. Because to be unsportsmanlike

"Of all the many problems facing college football, the most severe by far is the shocking number of rape cases involving athletes. And, as Luther makes abundantly clear in this impeccably researched volume, those numbers are only the tip of the iceberg, thanks to the contagion of cover-ups instigated by coaches and university officials, often with the support of police . . . Most important, Luther devotes part two of her book to changing the playbook, offering specific suggestions like “fire people” and “hire women” that throw down a gauntlet to those in power. Unsportsmanlike Conduct is not always easy to read—the text necessarily relies on numerous statistics and detailed summaries of court cases—but, nevertheless, it is almost certainly the most important sports book of the year." -- Booklist Starred Review "Highly relevant, hard-hitting, much-needed information that reveals the widespread existence of rape by sports players on college campuses." --Kirkus Reviews "We as a society owe a great debt to Jessica Luther. She has spent the last several years of her professional life dedicated primarily to reporting on the epidemic of sexual assault in college sports—football in particular. Her debut book Unsportsmanlike Conduct: College Football and the Politics of Rape, published on Dave Zirin’s “Edge of Sports” imprint at Akashic Books, isn’t simply a tell-all; she has rewritten the playbook for collegiate sports culture, giving survivors and supporters a reason to be hopeful about rooting for our teams without further sacrificing who we are." -- The Establishment The latest from Akashic's Edge of Sports imprint. Football teams create playbooks, in which they draw up the plays they will use on the field. Playbooks are how teams work and why they win. This book is about a different kind of playbook: the one coaches, teams, universities, police, communities, the media, and fans seem to follow whenever a college football player is accused of sexual assault. It's a deep dive into how different institutions--the NCAA, athletic departments, universities, the media--run the same plays over and over again when these stories break. If everyone runs his play well, scrutiny dies down quickly, no institution ever has to change how it operates, and the evaporation of these cases into nothingness looks natural. In short, this playbook is why nothing ever changes. Unsportsmanlike Conduct unpacks this societal playbook piece by piece, and not only advocates that we destroy the old plays, but also suggests we replace them with ones that will force us to finally do something about this issue. Political sportswriter and Edge of Sports imprint curator Dave Zirin (the Nation) has never shied away from criticizing that which die-hard sports fans hold dear. The Edge of Sports titles will address issues across many different sports—football, basketball, swimming, tennis, etc.—and at both the professional and nonprofessional/collegiate levels. Furthermore, Zirin brings to the table select stories of athletes’ journeys and what they are facing and how they evolve both in their sport as well as against the greater backdrop of one’s life’s odyssey.

Lawrence, an economist, football fan, and official, is an authoritative and astute critic of what is wrong with football in higher education as regulated by the NCAA. Lawrence believes the NCAA has become a cartel that keeps expenses low by rewarding the players almost nothing comparable to their contribution. . . . This is not the book for a novice interested in the razzle-dazzle of sports, but it is highly recommended for one who wants to understand the present situation and efforts, some misguided, to control the sport. Lawrence makes an in-depth analysis of the symbiotic relationship between football, the NCAA, and academia. The most valuable part of the book is that Lawrence, after carefully defining the situation, suggests some solutions. Choice Unsportsmanlike Conduct is the first single source to trace the history of the 80-year old National Collegiate Athletic Association and to explain its growth from a small group seeking safer football rules to the large powerful regulatory body that it is today. This volume not only provides a unique view, but also an economic analysis of the college athletic industry. The author examines the development of American college football since the late 1800s and shows how the NCAA has turned intercollegiate football into a multi-million dollar industry. By viewing the structure of this organization from an economic perspective, he demonstrates that the NCAA has acted like many other collusive groups of producers in order to maximize their financial interests by exploiting consumers, employees, and particularly athletes.

The author of Delayed Penalty returns with the story of a free spirit who believes she’s found forever with a playboy on a singles cruise. Discover why Kelly Jamieson calls the Pilots Hockey series “fun and flirty, warm and sweet.” Kristen Katsaros wants a life full of adventure and laughter. After a difficult childhood, her motto is to live each day like it’s her last—because it just might be. So when Kristen’s parents send her on a post-grad singles cruise in the Caribbean to meet a Greek husband, she promptly hooks up with the hottest guy she’s ever met. Pasha’s decidedly not Greek, but Kristen gives him a pass because he’s got fun written all over his rock-hard abs. Pavel Gribov, the cocky playboy of the Detroit Pilots hockey team, can score any girl he wants. But when a teammate drags him on a singles cruise, he can’t resist the chance to help out a drop-dead gorgeous damsel in distress by pretending to be her boyfriend. Before long, the fake fling turns intimate, fueled by something much deeper than lust. Kristen and Pasha both agree to walk away once the cruise is over, but reality hits like a slap shot when Kristen finds out Pasha lied about everything. Just when she’s ready to start living again, the two stubborn survivors must decide if they can bear to lose the best thing that ever happened to either of them.

Unsportsmanlike Conduct is the second book in the Renegades Ice Hockey Series. Sometimes love is messy, and unpredictable. The one you're with isn't always the one you're meant to be with. One year ago, Gia Torella made a huge mistake. After several glasses of champagne at her sister’s wedding she hooked up with Patrick Dubois, the most imposing hockey player on the Pittsburgh Renegades professional hockey team — both on the ice and off. But she vowed to forget that brief encounter, even if her body remembered all the wild and incredible things they did that night. She’s moved on from Patrick, and her solid, dependable boyfriend is proof of that. Patrick has never forgotten their one night of passion. Even though she’s the girlfriend of Tyler Kidd, his team’s captain and therefore completely off-limits, all he can think about is her curvy body, her bubbly personality, and the way she screamed out his name during the best sex he’s ever had. Since their night together, he’s given up on the puck bunnies, the partying, and the random hook-ups, and he’s willing to become the man she needs. They both know it’s wrong, but they’re drawn to each other in a whirlwind of passion. Can Patrick convince Gia that he has really changed into someone she could depend upon… and that sometimes love is worth the penalty for Unsportsmanlike Conduct?

Sports heroes are typically held up as role models, even though some of their behavior away from the game can be a bit unheroic. The athletes in this book did more than just party hard and sleep around...they became murderers. This book profiles 15 cases of athletes who brought the violence from the game into their homes. Some hired hitmen to kill off someone, while others did the job themselves. Some were at the top of their game while others were washed-out and struggling to get by. All fell victims to their own rage and lost everything. Some may think that OJ Simpson was an isolated case. This short book shows otherwise.

The true story of the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team and the Miracle on Ice, which Sports Illustrated called the greatest moment in sports history—with a new afterword by Ken Morrow for the fortieth anniversary of the Miracle on Ice “An unvarnished and captivating read.”—Parade Once upon a time, they taught us to believe. They were the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team, a blue-collar bunch led by an unconventional coach. Their “Miracle on Ice” has become a national fairy tale, but the real Cinderella story is even more remarkable. Wayne Coffey casts a fresh eye on this seminal sports event, giving readers an ice-level view of the amateurs who took on a Russian hockey juggernaut at the height of the Cold War. He details the unusual chemistry of the Americans—formulated by their fiercely determined coach, Herb Brooks—and seamlessly weaves portraits of the boys with the fluid action of the game itself. Coffey also traces the paths of the players and coaches since their stunning victory, examining how the Olympic events affected their lives. Told with warmth and an uncanny eye for detail, The Boys of Winter is an intimate, perceptive portrayal of one Friday night in Lake Placid and the enduring power of the extraordinary.
