The Business of College Football (Rebroadcast)
College football in Florida is more than a Saturday afternoon pastime for players, coaches and fans. It’s also big business, generating millions of dollars in revenues for universities. The start of play this year, though, has included questions about improper benefits for student-athletes in Florida and around the country. We’ll weigh the benefits and limitations of the way our college football system is set up and talk about the ethics and the business of college ball.
ResearchOne / USF Zombies
USF highlighted its efforts in science and innovation during the annual “ResearchOne” celebration. University Beat on WUSF TV brings you highlights from the ResearchOne kick-off event, which focused on the pivotal role USF marine scientists have played in investigating the Gulf oil disaster. Also: Just in time for Halloween, zombie-mania is hitting USF!
This week on University Beat on WUSF 89.7, we talk with a pair of USF students whose publishing company has released a new anthology of zombie stories set in the Bay area…we also look at a weeklong role-playing game that pits zombies versus humans almost anywhere on campus…and we take you to a class that shows the artistic side of the living dead!
