When a university athletic department returns to the big business of college football after its NCAA probation is lifted, staff conflict and a new scandal involving a freshman tutor threaten to blow up the whole program. From the playwright of White Guy on the Bus and The Outgoing Tide comes this incendiary and timely new drama inspired by true events. ​
