Graphically details the story of Guy Golden, Division I college basketball coach, who is forced to deal with the aura of the N.C.A.A. tournament, "March Madness," while his star player is accused of raping a coed. The novel concerns the conflict between his love for the game and the pressure to win at any cost. Golden is disillusioned with the unethical nature of major college sports: recruiting, the exploitation of athletes, drug abuse, gambling, affluent alumni, the powerful media, money. "Winning is the only thing." THE GYM RAT exposes the raw reality of college athletics. It is the narrative of a man's love of a game which threatens to destroy him.
