Maybe you don't like Daniel Tosh

That would be fine. But probably you like ESPN even less. In which case, here is a clip for you anyway.

And if you enjoyed that, then please see this further reading on corruption and exploitation in big time sports.

Coach Wooden told us that there was no changing the NCAA’s minds, that they were “immovable, like the sun rising in the east.” I never personally encountered any players who cheated or shaved points, but I could see why some resorted to illegally working an extra job or accepting monetary gifts in order to get by.

The worst part is that nothing much has changed since my experience as a college athlete almost forty years ago. Well, one thing has changed: the NCAA, television broadcasters, and the colleges and universities are making a lot more money.
