Justin HockerJohn ClabornRhetoric 10110-22-19EvaluationIn the article, “Think LSU.'s Locker Room Was Crazy? It Also Has a Centrifuge” by Zach Schonbrun, it goes into detail about how sports science and analytics have been implemented more and more into football training in order to get the best results on the field. This research the programs do goes way beyond sports drinks, cold tubs, and sleep monitors and I think having these new facilities with better technology and research centers is good for the university and for the program. With all this knowledge Schonbrun is presenting us, one of the audiences he is addressing is the college football fans by informing them of the kind of money programs are spending on these new facilities and research centers. The author is informing the fans of the effects it has on the players and the program itself. Fans want some insight into what the program is doing to keep the players healthy and to help their performanceon Saturdays. Another group of people Schonbrun is addressing is the players themselves by letting them know their rights. Although the article does mention that these tests the universities do are voluntary, what if they are just saying that to cover themselves up. Also, the player has an obligation to help the program by being their testdummy since the university is doing them a lot of favors. The biggest audience the author is trying to reach is the college media. The media is the mecca of college footballand it is how the players and fans get informed about what is going on. Not to mention,
the number of media that is in college football is staggering. From ESPN to ABC to CBS, these multimillion-dollar corporations have a crazy amount of power.
