Start by marking From Red Ink to Roses: The Turbulent Transformation of a Big Ten Program as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. Senior Sports Illustrated writer Rick Telander-author of Heaven Is a Playground and The Hundred-Yard Lie-goes behind the scenes in a Big Ten athletic department to reveal the human fall-out from the necessary political and financial decisions that dominate college sports.

From Library Journal. Its hard to believe that an athletic program in the Big 10 conference was close to bankrupcy in 1990. This is Telander's third fine book on the impact of sports on the lives of young people in the United States (the others are The Hundred-Yard Lie, S. & . 1990, and Heaven Is a Playground, S. 1991). Here, he examines the workings of the athletic department at the University of Wisconsin, a large, prestigious institution that is attempting to strike a balance between educational goals and winning games. Lackluster performance on the field and poor fiscal responsibility led the Badgers to the edge of financial ruin. What turned this program around?

A chronicle of idealism vs. practical reality in college athletics reveals the high-risk, high-pressure decisions that led to the athletic turnaround at the University of Wisconsin-and the effects on the lives of the students involved. 20,000 first printing.

Telander (The Hundred Yard Lie, 1989) spent 1991 doing a closeup study of what was then a sickly sports program at the fourth largest university in the country. In three years he took the team to its first winning season in a decade, culminating in the Rose Bowl victory. Telander examines the effect of such sudden growth on the student-athletes, the school, and the community.

Rick Telander is the senior sports columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times

Rick Telander is the senior sports columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times. Hired in 1995 from Sports Illustrated, where he was a Senior Writer, Telander's presence at the newspaper was expected to counter the stable of sports columnists the rival Chicago Tribune had. Telander is a native of Peoria, Illinois and attended Richwoods High School, where he was an All-Conference quarterback. He attended Northwestern University on a football scholarship

The school's sports were in the throes of a major crisis, thanks to huge deficits that resulted from a combination of lousy football, declining attendance, and some ill-advised construction projects.

I starting reading this book, and could not put it down. Being a student at Madison at the time, I was drawn in by the behind the scenes view of the athletic department, and the personalities of the individuals involved. Two things I wished had been further addressed. One, why did the university chose to cut these sports? Who were the primary decision makers, and what led to their decision? Two, Mr. Telander discussed the serious attendance decline for football games at Madison. A main reason for this, as he addressed, was the poor performance of the team. But the other primary reason, which was only briefly discussed, was the university's crack down on students having fun at the games. WIsconsin football had been lousy for years, but attendance didn't suffer before. Who pushed for these changes, and did they recognize their role in the resulting financial woes? When you combine a lousy team, and a university taking away the unique game day experience at Madison, was anyone surprised that people stayed away in droves? However, I would highly reccomend this book as a fascinating look at the business of collegiate sports.

Its hard to believe that an athletic program in the Big 10 conference was close to bankrupcy in 1990. Lackluster performance on the field and poor fiscal responsibility led the Badgers to the edge of financial ruin.
What turned this program around? It depends on who you ask. Rick Telander (a senior Sports Illustrated writer) lays out the many complexities involved in the decisions made that not only returned Bucky and the UW athletic department to economic solviency, but to the Rose Bowl.

Anyone who coaches or is an athletic administrator should read this book. There are lessons to be learned for coaches and AD's at every level.

You can usually find this book for under at Amazon or any used bookstore in your area. It's worth that much just for the story about the fundraising golf tournament UW hosted and LOST money!
