THE CLASS WITH THE LONGEST WUAITLIST
They're lining up for Bacon

THE BOOK BUSINESS

Before this semester began,
students scoured through their
course guides to choose from the
more than 1,000 classes offered at
the University.
Asalways, many students with
later registration dates found
waitlists rather than open seats in
the classes they wanted to take.
Though sitting eleventh on a
waitlist probably wouldn't faze
most students, what about being
eighty-ninth?
According to the Registrar's
Office, the History of College
Athletics, offered by the Ameri-
can Culture department, has the
longest waitlist this semester,
once boasting a total of 89 stu-
'dents.
That means 89 of the 150 stu-
dents in the class would need to

drop the class to allow everyo
on the waitlist to join.
It begs the question: what's
special shout the class?
According to the coui
description, students in the cl,
will take a close look at whyc
lege athletics are "a quintesal
tial part of American cultur
and why America is the or
country to take collegiate spot
so seriously.
It also explores how the ides
college athletics developed a.
women and African-Americas
influence on the multi-billion d
lar industry.
But beyond the subject matt
many students might be entic
by the popularity of the prof(
sor. The class, first offered att
University in the fall of 2006,

one taught by campus favorite Prof.
John Bacon.
so Bacon also teaches a course
called The Rise and Fall of the
rae American Sportswriter. That
ass class has a lengthy waitlist of its
:ol- own, with a total of 51 students.
.0- Bacon has also made a strong
e," name for himself in the literary,
ly world. Along with contributing
>rts pieces to TIME, Sports Illus-
trated, and various publications,xx
iof Bacon has authored five books.
nd Bacon's latest book, So's Last-
ns' ing Lessons, was a New York
lol- Times and Wall Street Journaal
bestseller. He wrote the book
er, with legendary Michigan football
ed coach Bo Schembechler before he
.es- died in 2006.
