Throwing your hands up in the air and going "oh the hell with this!" is one strategy, I guess. It's the one that NCAA has chosen when it comes to the evolving (evolved) world of amateurism in college sports, but the problem is that it also isn't a legal theory, which coincidentally is what the Supreme Court of the United States needed to hear if they were going to side with the NCAA.

They did not. The 9-0 decision, while relatively narrow on the face of it, is a gigantic slap in the face of NCAA "amateurism" in a broader sense, and the funniest part of all of this is that the NCAA has no idea what to do next. And they've got vanishingly little time to figure that out.

Plus, Ask Us Anything (which you can do at dubcast@elevenwarriors.com) wants to know our takes on the NBA playoffs, and what makes Ohio a Midwestern state, anyway?!?

0:00 The next few months are going to be absolutely hilarious in college sports.

23:12 Shoutout to our Olympians! That also has the chance to be a giant mess, but hopefully a productive one!

30:23 "The sin of not being able to read the room" is something that will stick with me for a while.

And that's the Dubcast for this week, thanks as always to Travis for our cool logo, thanks to you for listening and checking out the Dry Goods store, and we'll see you next time!
