As I mentioned in our podcast post yesterday, I had the pleasure of speaking with Robert Wheel, a contributor for SB Nation, Deadspin and Vice. You can see some of his previous articles and the UConn portion of our conversation in that post.
I wanted to put the full conversation in a separate post since we spoke on a wide range of topics, including:
- Should J.T. Barrett have had his scholarship revoked?
- Who is Rick Pitino fooling when he says he had no idea about what was going on?
- What message does a school like Louisville send to its community when it condones the behavior of its football and basketball coaches?
- Impact of NLRB ruling to overturn college athletes' right to collectively bargain
- A lot of UConn stuff. Mr. Wheel grew up in Connecticut and, though he didn't go to UConn, still has a lot of love for the sports teams. He also really misses the Whalers.
