College Sports Briefing Episode 004: Civil Disobedience, Alcohol and the 10-Second Rule

Show Notes

  1. Is it okay for players and coaches to violate rules that we might all agree need to be changed?  I give my thoughts and use the example of Johnny Manziel’s football autographs and Oregon State pitcher Ben Wetzler’s use of an agent.

  2. The University of Texas announced last week it would sell alcohol and some of its events this spring, and evaluate whether to continue and/or expand the practice in the fall.  I give my thoughts as well as provide more information on other schools who have implemented similar policies in recent years.
