NCAA Exploitation Word Association

This week we speak to DC-based sports journalist and editor Patrick Hruby about the rot that envelops the NCAA, more visible than ever this March. We do all this through the prism of word association, talking coaches, players, apparel companies, and the NCAA.

We also have ‘Choice Words’ about Mike Trout’s mega contract. We then got ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ awards to Braden Holtby and Michigan State coach Tom Izzo, a brand new ‘Kaepernick Watch’, and more!
