From Leveling the Playing Field . . .
"In a society where choosing which side to root for often takes priority over other forms of authentic discovery and engagement, it may be tempting to sum up the story of the Syracuse 8 as a conflict between a "racist white" football coach and a group of "militant black" student athletes. The temptation is worth resisting. What little truth there is in that characterization only tends to hide the complexity of a more compelling human drama that touches not only on race and sports, but on generational conflict, American cultural history, the ability of institutions to cope with change, and the struggle of individuals for personal dignity."—Greg Allen, one of the Syracuse 8
