10-30-14 Edge of Sports

Episode 325: BOOM! The World Series is over but Edge of Sports carries onward and upward. Three fantastic guests join Dave and Coach. First, hear from PBS News Hour’s William Brangham who is researching the dangers of head injuries…in soccer. Former New York Giants linebacker Carl Banks, a member of the NFL’s 1980’s All-Decade team, explains the true nature of the problem of saying someone isn’t “black enough.” Finally, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill senior Omololu Refilwe Babatunde, a Geography and African-American and Diaspora Studies major, details why she helped form the ‘Real Silent Sam Coalition’ amongst the recent grade-fixing scandal at the sports-rich university.
