What Can We Learn From Mizzou?

Missouri football players help bring major change to campus, providing a glimpse of the power college athletes can have.

The University of Missouri football team played a prominent role in the resignation of system president Tim Wolfe on Monday amid protests over his handling of a string of racially motivated incidents on campus. 

This week, Huffington Post sports reporter Travis Waldron and NFL veteran Donté Stallworth, hosts of "The Second Half" podcast, dive deep into the Mizzou protests and what they say about athletes' power to effect change on college campuses. 

Aside from Mizzou, HuffPost congressional reporter Laura Barron-Lopez joins to discuss the Pentagon paying millions of dollars to pro sports teams for military tributes at games, and Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.) details his newly introduced legislation to address deaths in high school football. Plus, a look back at last weekend's best NFL games, and a look ahead to what to watch for this week.

This podcast was produced, edited and engineered by Peter James Callahan and Adriana Usero, with assistance from Christine Conetta.
