If it is kinda rare for Duke to be runner up on a top tier recruit, it is almost unheard of for the player to choose a tiny mid-major instead, but that is just what Patrick Baldwin Jr. did Wednesday morning, going on national TV to announce he will play for his father at Wisconsin-Milwaukee rather than playing for Coach K at Duke. We break down Baldwin’s decision, what we understand about it and what we don’t.
Plus, the podcast crew also looks at the news that the NCAA is going to try to get name, image, and likeness legislation passed in the next few weeks, opening the door for athletes to make money off their fame and skill starting this fall. As you can imagine, we are pretty skeptical that the NCAA will get this figured out in a way that makes sense and Sam chimes in with a bold prediction about some unexpected fallout from the whole thing.
