So much college athletics financial analysis these days is agenda-based, with writers too often seeking marginalize or even demonize those who have different perspectives. However, Kristi Dosh, who bills herself as the SportsBizMiss, approaches her subject matter in an open, analytical and reasonable manner. . . . As a practicing attorney, Dosh knows her way around resources and is skilled at accumulating and displaying information that generally informs rather than inflames. All the while, she keeps the reading experience eclectic and enjoyable.
