The Predictable Scandals of Urban Meyer

This week we speak to USA Today sports columnist Dan Wolken about Ohio State Buckeye football coach Urban Meyer and his three game suspension to start the 2018 season. We talk about the sport of college football, its mounting scandals, the NCAA, and what can be done to change them.

We also have Choice Words about Kyrie Irving and his entry into the Standing Rock Sioux community. We also have Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down awards for former ESPN commentator Jemele Hill and Betsy Devos, a Kaepernick Watch, and more!
