Jon Stewart, The Daily Show rip NCAA
By Zac Ellis
Given the debate around pay-for-play models and the growing criticism toward college athletics, it was only a matter of time before Jon Stewart of The Daily Show took a shot at the NCAA. Check out the video above, courtesy of thedailyshow.com.
Stewart took on college athletics’ governing body during his show on Thursday night, touching on both the Ed O’Bannon v. the NCAA lawsuit and the controversy surrounding Minnesota wrestler Joel Bauman. I’m not sure if it’s surprising that the NCAA decided against sitting down with The Daily Show, but that only facilitated more humor. Enjoy.
