Only A Game analyst Charlie Pierce joins the show from the Ed O’Bannon trial in Oakland, Calif., where NCAA President Mark Emmert, in Charlie’s words, “put as much lipstick on the amateurism pig as he possibly could” this week. Bill Littlefield and Charlie also discuss L.A. Dodgers’ pitcher Clayton Kershaw’s almost perfect no-hitter, Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn’s legacy, and an unsuccessful quarterback’s gift to the Michigan prison system.
