Scott Soden in for Colin. Tom ponders why he isn't as into the NCAA tournament as he has been in the past and he thinks it's because of the whole one and done rule making the sport bereft of star power. The guys talk about Pete Prisco of CBS and his assertion that Russell Wilson is a middling quarterback. Should we care about what a national pundit thinks about him? Tom and Scott talk to Kristi Dosh, author of Saturday Millionaires about the possible unionization of college sports after the ruling at Northwestern came down in favor of it. She talks about how this can lead to paying athletes, which will be a slippery slope. Will you just be paying men's football and basketball players or ALL athletes and will this affect Title IX? Scott has a solution to the problem with college athletics. He believes that specific athletes should be paid via a merit system and the rest continue to be on scholarship. The money would be divvied up by how much each sport brings into the school.
