The Department of Sociology presents a talk by Dr. James Gundlach titled "Tackling Auburn Football: Losing by Winning and Winning by Losing." 

Dr. Gundlach, earned his Ph.D. in sociology at The University of Texas at Austin in 1976 and was a faculty member in the Auburn Department of Sociology, Anthropology, Social Work, and Criminology from 1974 to 2001.  During that time he worked his way up from instructor to full professor and director of sociology. Gundlach ended his career at Auburn by challenging the offering of sociology classes in directed reading format to Auburn athletes by a criminology professor in a way that gave them A's for doing almost no work and learning no sociology.
