We believe that truly deserving people don't receive adequate recognition while sports-playing buffoons grab all the attention. To do our part in remedying that injustice, we are highlighting some people who do deserve recognition along with some links to like-minded sites. As the internet evolves and intelligence grows, interest in professional sports has waned significantly. This is nowhere more evident than in the exponential growth of anti-sport webpages. If you have a favorite person or site that you'd like to add, please e-mail secretary@sportssuck.org.

Authors William Bowen and James Shulman argue that an unhealthy focus on athletics is derailing the nation's colleges and universities from their core academic mission. The authors rebut just about every defense of college athletics: that sports teach leadership, that athletic recruiting boosts minority enrollment, and that alumni demand sports teams (their data show that alumni want academics improved far more than they do sports).
