What is March Madness without high-level athleticism, hopeful predictions, thrillers, disappointments, and scandal? These elements make up the experience of NCAA Basketball’s most celebrated time of year. Sports Awakening’s Mike Patton observes the good and not so good sides of the tournament that is arguably one of the most watched events in college sports.

The NCAA is a well oiled money machine and the product they push is the kids. They parade them out there for everyone to see and they don’t really get paid for how much they make. The schools and coaches are making out like bandits while these kids are not getting a dime. That should change and that should change immediately. The NCAA knows it and so does majority of people watching the games.” Read Mike’s entire article here at Sports Awakening
