"Schooled: The Price of College Sports is a comprehensive look at the business, history and culture of big-time college football and basketball in America. It is an adaptation of 'The Cartel' by Pulitzer Prize Winning civil rights scholar Taylor Branch, and his Atlantic Monthly article, 'The Shame of College Sports.' Schooled presents a hard-hitting examination of the NCAA's treatment of its athletes and amateurism in collegitate athletics; weaving interviews, archival and verité to tell a story of how college sports became a billion dollar industry built on the backs of athletes who are deprived of numerous rights.

Includes interviews with current and former college athletes, coaches, academic advisors, NCAA compliance officers, historians, sports journalists and university admnistrators, such as: Houston Texans' running back Arian Foster, Emmy-winning Sportscaster Bob Costas, EPSN analyst Jay Bilas, Joe Nocera of The New York Times, Sports Illustrated's Frank Delford, and Michael Rosenberg."

Comments

Strand's single-layer presentation does what it can with the mix of sources (from crisp HD talking heads to blurry watermarked news sources from the seventies onwards). The compression isn't always up to some of the more detailed shots (like the few arena crowd bits) The 5.1 track is appropriate here since the documentary features plenty of scoring rather than just spoken interviews. English closed captions are present on the disc. There are no extras other than trailers of other upcoming Strand releases (including the recently reviewed BRANCA'S PITCH).
