An investigative report on athletic recruiting irregularities prepared by a University of Colorado committee holds the school's administrators responsible for the use of sex, drugs, and alcohol to lure high school football players to the Buffalos. The study, submitted to the school's governing board this week, strongly urges major recruiting changes. NPR's Scott Simon speaks with Murray Sperber, who studies intercollegiate athletics.
