Heading a Hoops Conference In Era of Big Football

This week we speak to the commissioner of the West Coast Conference, Gloria Nevarez, the first Latina commissioner of a Division I conference, about the challenges in a conference better known for schools like Gonzaga than Ohio State.

We also have ‘Choice Words’ about the NFL’s hypocrisy and violence against women, ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ awards to courageous current and former NFL players and the Washington Football team, and some commentary about the homophobic reaction to the alleged online outing of Dwight Howard.
