College Sports in Society Golden 1 Society being dependant on groups to stay at a stable position is what functionalism is. Aguste Comte perceived society as being similar to organs in a person’s body that are needed to make the body function properly. Sociologists believe that the groups that make up society react and feed off of one another. The groups’ actions, whether or not it is for manifest functions or the ignorance of latent dysfunctions, make it possible for that group or another group to prosper or to fall in a lower class or level of society. In society, sports play a significant factor of how we might converse; we could either agree and create a great bond through a favorite team, or we could form a civilized rival that could only be answered by which team wins. In the average household, people love professional sports, but more than likely these households will have a more passionate feeling for the favorite college team.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
