Then we pivot around the world of sports, looking at both some flattering and unflattering snapshots in MLB, the NBA, NCAA Football, and the NFL! MLB loves to show their home runs, but the postseason always seems to change their focus. The NBA could have a serious fan base problem.

The Kansas Jayhawks basketball program may be in big trouble, but it probably won’t affect them this season.
