Leave it to South Park to hit right at (and slightly below) the belt on pretty much any matter of public discussion. This week's episode was even more timely as usual although it's not hard to hit the mark when it comes to mocking the absurdity of college sports. Even still, with the most recent scandal at Ohio State over the Jim Tressel resignation / firing this clip is even better than normal.â†µ
To set this clip up, in this episode of South Park our favorite little scallion, Eric Cartman, has devised a new scheme to make money. He "recruits" orphaned babies to play in a You Tube sensation (of his invention) called the Crack Baby Athletic Association.â†µ
In the clip, Cartman meets with an official at a major university to pick up some tips on how to build his "non-profit" business by employing unpaid "student athletes". It's a biting and on-point commentary on the state of college sports.â†µ
