Video Of Congressional Panel On College Sports Scandals

As I have mentioned a few times already, last week a group of individuals who are tied to college sports in a variety of ways converged in Washington D.C. to participate in a roundtable discussion titled, Hypocrisy or Hype?  The Impacts of Back-Room Deals, Payoffs, and Scandals in American Collegiate Student Athletics.  The list of participants may be found here.

Former NFLPA Contract AdvisorJosh Luchs was on that panel and had someone tape about 8 minutes of the event.  Understandably, a large portion of the video is dominated by Luchs, but it is still a nice glimpse of the session on Capitol Hill.  The video is embedded below.
