TTU’s Dr. Arthur Banton discusses sports history, as well as its cultural impact.
Tennessee has long been a hotbed of sports, and it’s a world that seems to be in constant change over the past several years. From new payment and transfer options for students on the college level, the looming threat of realignment, new television contracts, and the massive money that comes with them. There are a lot of things changing right now. A Tennessee Tech professor has made it a part of his research to understand the history of sport, and why it grabs so many of us in such an important way. We continue our conversation today with Tennessee Tech professor Dr. Arthur Banton.
