Help needed: Students in sports studies

The following comes from Karen Hartman at Ashland (OH) University. If you can help her out, please contact her directly:
I am currently writing a pedagogical paper on the benefits of using sport as a frame to draw students into courses they might initially think are "boring." I am in search of statistics and articles that demonstrate trends in sport and academia. In other words, what (if any) information is out there that shows the numbers of students involved in sport studies, trends of more students participating in sport studies, or even the increasing amount of jobs in sport.

I have plenty of research on the qualitative benefits of studying sport, but thought some of you might be able to point me in the right direction to find some quantitative research.

Thanks in advance for your time and help!
