The Daily Show on the NCAA

Every spring, one of the liveliest discussions in my nonprofit law class concerns the tax status of the NCAA and college athletics.  (We cover the topic while discussing the UBIT).  After this year's discussion, a student sent me this clip of John Stewart taking on the NCAA.  Although the clip doesn't really address the NCAA's tax status, it does touch on relevant issues, such as commericialism and the treatment of student athletes.  I plan on adding it to my repertoire of in-class videa clips; there's nothing quite like John Stewart to pull students out of their post-lunch slump.
