Ridpath Provides Insider’s View of NCAA

B. David Ridpath, President Elect of the Drake Group, first contacted the Drake Group in 2004 during his ongoing battle with Marshall University over NCAA violations in the athletic department. Ridpath, in his new book titled Tainted Glory, documents his experiences as an assistant compliance director at Marshall. Former New York Times columnist, Robert Lipsyte calls the book “the best insider’s examination of a corrupt system I have ever read. His ringing call for higher education to reclaim universities from college sports is a powerful and important message.”

He recently published his first book:
