Why this matters
The Bishop Sycamore HS scandal goes deeper than we thought, and brings up important issues within the role of youth sport today.
On the show, professors Kenneth Shropshire and Scott Rosner dissect the bizarre scandal that keeps unfolding - the Bishop Sycamore HS matchup with IMG Academy on ESPN, and the role of youth sport today. The two also discuss the U.S. Open Tennis Championships where several top stars are out from injury. Then, they move on to the investigation into Urban Meyer's controversial comments about player cuts and vaccine status and whether it connects with the recent cut of Cam Newton from the Patriots, too?
The Global Sport Matters Podcast presents, in collaboration with Columbia University Sports Management, 'Sports Professors,' where professors Kenneth Shropshire and Scott Rosner discuss the 101 on what happened in sports business. Each episode gives you a quick recap of the past week in sports, before diving deeper into a bigger topic to look at what's happening and why it matters. This week: Brigham Young University strikes an NIL deal for all football players.
