"For more than a half century, television has played a primary role in securing college football's place as one of America's most popular spectator sports. But it has also been the common denominator in the sport's rise as a big business. Television, which multiplied the number of people who cared about the game, simultaneously increased the stakes." "The colleges, who once feared television's ability to create free tickets, gradually became addicted to its charms. Through the years, the medium manufactured money, greed, dependence, and envy; altered the recruiting process, eventually forcing the colleges to compete with the irresistible force of National Football League riches; aided the National Collegiate Athletic Association's explosion from impotent union to massive bureaucracy; manipulated the rise and fall of the College Football Association; fomented the realignment of conferences; and seized control of the post-season bowl games, including the formation of the lucrative and controversial Bowl Championship Series." "In The Fifty-Year Seduction, Keith Dunnavant shows how television helped shape the modern sport - on and off the field. In painstaking detail, the author chronicles five decades of tension and conflict, from the 1951 television dispute that empowered the modern NCAA to the inevitable backlash, culminating with the landmark Supreme Court decision that set the stage for the conference-swapping machinations of the 1990s and beyond."--BOOK JACKET

George Wallace's defiant stand at Foster Auditorium...and how these civil rights pioneers tapped into a force more powerful than hate. While laying the foundation for Nick Saban's new-age Bama dynasty, these athletes helped Alabamians begin to see beyond black and white. Featuring exclusive interviews with Wilbur Jackson, the Jackie Robinson of Alabama football; Dock Rone, Andrew Pernell and Arthur Dunning, who walked on to the all-white Bama team in 1967 but have been lost to history (until now); Wendell Hudson, the first African-American basketball player for the Crimson Tide; and Danny Treadwell, who integrated the state high school basketball tournament at Foster, just 33 months after Wallace's infamous stand. An official selection of the 2013 Sidewalk Film Festival and All Sports Los Angeles Film Festival. "Simply an unforgettable film...Keith Dunnavant has taken one of the seminal moments in the civil rights movement and peeled off a new layer that is both haunting and gut-wrenching." --Paul Finebaum, ESPN. "An incredible piece of filmmakng...The little-known back story of how the love of sports--particularly Alabama football--eventually made people of the region put aside their long-held prejudices and accept the inevitable change...A story of courage, determination and, ultimately, redemption." --Tony Barnhart, CBS Sports. "A championship effort by Dunnavant, who allows THREE DAYS AT FOSTER to expose dark times in Tuscaloosa that ultimately give way to a brighter day, not only for a team but a state..." --Tom Lindley, CNHI News Service
