The University Of Maryland Football Fiasco Part 2

This episode picks up where the prior one left off - with a continued look at the culmination of events starting from the death of University of Maryland football player Jordan McNair to the firing of the Terrapins head football coach on Halloween night.  In this episode, we focus on power - the power of money, the power of trauma, and the power of collegiate athletes.
