EDUsports talks about issues related to college sports and frames it for higher education professionals. In this episode, we discussed:
- Doug Smith came on as a guest host (our new resident hockey expert) and broke down how the creation of superconferences in NCAA hockey is actually starving the sport and will hurt the smaller programs
- NCAA violations are not all the same. We talked about how the system needs work, since many schools punished for “major” violations actually increase their wins over previous years. However, cash fines to schools is probably not a reasonable solution. We need to talk about what is actually a violation, instead of the penalty. What competitive advantage?
- Michael McAdoo proves that the students are taking the brunt of NCAA punishments, since he was made ineligible from college sports, even though his honor court at UNC cleared him of violations. We break down the case.
- We ended up with “Who’s Bad” – our segment on who’s gotten busted.
