After discussing Brook Forde's ascension to the US Olympic swimming team & a game of Where in America is Producer Sully, Pat, Pete & Dan analyze the judicial flood gates opened up by this major SCOTUS ruling.

Later in the show, they discuss NCAA president Mark Emmert's name, image and likeness memo on the eve of a July 1st legal train-wreck & outgoing Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott's comments about the 12-team playoff expansion.
