Intelligence Squared Debate Series: College Football
Corruption and a growing concern for head injury have put college football in the spotlight. Are football program's millions in profits exploitation? Or are they still a celebration of amateur sport?
Does football's inherent danger and violence have any place in institutions of higher learning? Or does it provide young men with educational opportunities they would not otherwise have? The debaters are Buzz Bissinger, Tim Green, Malcolm Gladwell, and Jason Whitlock.
