John Oliver Rant Tears Apart the NCAA and March Madness for 20 Minutes (Video)

John Oliver rant

Just as you were gearing up for a couple weeks of March Madness, boozy work lunches at sports bars, and brackets, brackets, brackets, John Oliver has to ruin all the fun. On his HBO show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, the host spent no less than 20 minutes tearing apart the NCAA as an institution.

I’m guessing that no one, unless they’re REALLY unemployed, is going to watch all 20 minutes of this John Oliver rant, but it’s worth checking in on. It’s amazing that he can go on being critical of the NCAA¬†for so long, yet not be wrong about a single thing.

Here’s the video clip:

The fact that we’re enriching the NCAA by putting so much time and attention into March Madness is probably worth noting and informing people about, but I don’t think that’s likely to change much. However, the tides seem to be turning in favor of the players, so maybe this John Oliver rant will encourage¬†the NCAA to share the wealth a little more.

Not likely, but possible.
