NYU Law – College Athletics: Is Anyone in Charge?

Hungover or not, this is a great video to watch on New Years Day.  Buy yourself an hour and some change, and enjoy listening to LaVar Arrington, Dana Jacobson, Bob Lamonte, Joseph Nocera and others discuss major issues in college athletics.  The event was New York Law’s 2012 Law Alumni Association Fall Lecture, moderated by moderated by NYU Professor Arthur Miller.  Enjoy.
