Ohio State football podcast: Northwestern and NCAA lawsuits with Kevin Trahan

Bradley Leeb-USA TODAY Sports

In our latest podcast, we chat with Inside NU and SB Nation contributor Kevin Trahan about all things Northwestern, O'Bannon, and more

The World Cup is in full swing right now (U-S-A! U-S-A!), and thankfully, college football news has downshifted a little bit so we can all watch. Perhaps the only big college football related news story happening right now is with NCAA lawsuits, and legal challenges to the amateurism model. This *is* a big story.

Few have followed the story as closely as Kevin Trahan, who has written multiple stories on the legal battles for SBNation.com. On our latest Hangout in the Holy Land, we have Trahan explain what has gone on with the trails so far, what the NCAA's plan is, and what this all means for college sports fans. Trahan is also the editor for InsideNU, and chats Wildcat football with us as well.

As always, you can subscribe to the Hangout via iTunes, or check out our previous episodes here. Or, you could just listen below:
