USWNT

On July 7th, 2019, the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team won its second consecutive World Cup title. Their dominant run in the tournament sparked some controversy, but even that only underscored what a cultural force the team has become, not just in the U.S. but globally. In this episode we examine how that came be, and how a very well-known law helped women's soccer in the U.S. (Music featured includes Skip Street by Chad Crouch)

The Fairest Draft Of All?

With the month of June over, that means all four major North American sports leagues have conducted their annual player drafts. With that fresh in our minds, John & Marcia sat down with BPR's Matt Bush to figure which of the four drafts is most fair to players, and which one they would want to enter if they had the choice.

The Racism Of The NFL Draft

The 2019 NFL Draft takes place from April 25th to the 27th. This episode doesn't focus on who's going to get picked and where. Instead, it examines the language used to evaluate players - and John's chilling realization about one aspect of the draft combine process that resembles the darkest chapters of American history.

2019 Final Four

Where does all the revenue go? Marcia asked that at the end of our previous episode , and we start our second annual Final Four show by answering that question. Later on we get Machiavellian, and ask whether the end justified the means about the head coaches of two schools appearing in the 2019 men's Final Four.

Coaching 'Em Up Or Bullying And Other Stories Of March Madness 2019

The 2019 NCAA Men's basketball tournament will undoubtedly be remembered for many things. One of them happened early on the first full day of the tournament. As Michigan State struggled to put away underdog Bradley, Spartans head coach Tom Izzo started yelling at freshman star Aaron Henry as he approached the bench during a timeout. Izzo became so heated as he yelled that Spartan players had to restrain him. The controversy it sparked may have been predictable, bouncing between those who felt it
