Taylor Branch Discusses His Landmark Work on the NCAA & ‘Amateurism’ [VIDEOS]

It might not constitute the strict definition of The Other Sports, but we’d be remiss not to publicize to the best of our ability a piece of sportswriting so uniquely brilliant.  In this piece from The Atlantic, Taylor Branch identifies the tenuous foundation on which the NCAA organization was built and discovers/uncovers the cracks in its seemingly infallible armor.  It must be read by every fan of sport.

HERE’S THE LINK TO THE PIECE, IN ITS ENTIRETY: http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2011/10/the-shame-of-college-sports/8643/
