Marriner, an 8th-semester communications major, does service projects with his fraternity in addition to working with minority athletes at Project Uplift. Would traditional favorites like the final four tournament or football national championships become a thing of the past, as systems of parity are replaced by dominating sports behemoths among colleges able to leverage economic strength to recruit the best athletes and legally offer them the financial incentive to play at their school rather than another?

Jamele Hill is my favorite. However, while these sporting events can be very joyous, they can oftentimes be tainted by unfairness and injustice.
