Blog #1: Potential Research Topic

The topic that I am most interested in is college athletics and how privatization of universities has affected the overall landscape of college sports. College athletics has evolved immensely over time, and I will be aiming to pinpoint how privatization has concerned the modern "student-athlete", their respective athletic programs (facilities, recruiting, coaching staff, etc.) and the rest of their respective school (students, faculty, alumni, donors, etc.). With the popularity of college sports growing exponentially, what is the outlook for the future of college athletics with institutional privatization at its peak?
