The Athletic Snowball

Charles B. Corbin
Illustrated by: 
Jim Raatz

"The Athletic Snowball" is a parody of big-time college sports programs. The book is intended for lay as well as academic audiences. Illustrated with cartoons, the book lampoons athletic programs that grow exponentially and focus more on making money and winning than on student-athletes.
