The Violation

He looked into the heavens, rain streaming down his cheeks as if tears. “Why, Lord?”

And then a cold, chilling stare formed on his face. Ace Cleveland didn’t care anymore.

The entire sporting world was turned upside down. Everyone, including writers, broadcasters, coaches, athletic directors—even parents—were ignoring the fact that steroids were being used in college athletics…and killing people!

 

Review

“In The Violation, Jeff Schneider continues to take readers inside of collegiate athletics like few others can. Although this work is fiction, his view of college athletics and its excesses make not only entertaining reading, but should provoke thought and discussion about our games today and where they are headed…not to mention the health risks that student-athletes will often take to compete at the highest levels. Mirrors for all of us, please.”Charles Davis, FOX Sports, NFL Network

“Here is the scouting report on Jeff Schneider: He’s the original triple-threat author about what is really going on in college sports today: He understands the game because he played it. He can explain the game because he writes with clarity and conviction. And he ties it all together because he understands the big picture. Read The Violation. It will change the way you look at major-college sports.” – Rick Bozich, WDRB TV, Louisville

“Smart…and introspecitve look into the world of college sports we only hear whispers about.”  – ESPN Radio

 

 

The Fix

The Mob figures fixing the NCAA Final Four should be as easy as pushing a pimp off a bridge. But they haven’t figured on an unknown point-guard from a nowhere Kentucky town—Mike Kramer, a poor country boy with a great heart and everything to prove. The World Broadcasting Company (WBC), holder of broadcast rights for the NCAA Final Four, is in big ratings trouble, and its head honchos know it. With Austin Peay and other Cinderella teams clogging recent tournaments, sportswriters are starting to call it “The Final Bore.” Desperate to hold onto their fat paychecks and their pride, WBC’s execs see just one solution: maneuvering the four teams with the largest followings into the Final Four. How to do it? Hire a Mob contact to put in The Fix.
