Jerry Parkinson spent nearly ten years, from 2000 to 2010, as a member of the NCAA's Division I Committee on Infractions, participating in over one hundred major infractions cases. He came away from that experience-and the experience of reading extensive commentary on infractions cases-with the conviction that most observers do not understand the NCAA's rules-enforcement process, despite the amount of public attention many major cases receive. Parkinson uses his insider's perspective, along with illustrative stories, to help readers understand how the NCAA's rules-enforcement process really works. These stories include: a university board of trustees chair committing suicide over an infractions case; a pay-for-play scandal leading directly to the state's governor; a head coach falsely portraying a deceased player as a drug dealer to cover up the coach's own misconduct; a gambler laundering his money by making the largest booster payments in NCAA history; and a coach's sexual abuse of children leading to some of the harshest sanctions ever imposed by the NCAA. Based on years of experience and infused with insight, Parkinson provides a broad view of the world of NCAA rule breakers and the NCAA rules-enforcement process.
