Missouri is playing a football game this Saturday night—a game that was recently put in jeopardy by the ongoing firestorm at the school. It’s a big ol’ shitshow that promises to get messier before it gets cleaner, with potential strikes, ousted chancellors, professors begging for muscle (coming right up!), hot takers out here truthering poop-swastika police reports, and loons who would be president falling over themselves to bemoan the threat of militant political correctness sweeping across America, which is a totally new and not at all recycled phenomenon!

Anyway, this situation calls for a somewhat nuanced and lengthy discussion between two people hopelessly removed from the situation, and that discussion is the centerpiece of this week’s Deadcast.

And there’s more! As you might expect, we talk about the Greg Hardy documents, AND we take a moment to bid a fond farewell to colleague Kyle Wagner, who’s off to FiveThirtyEight. Just kidding. It’s not a fond farewell at all! Kyle can go eat shit!

If you have anything you’d like to hear discussed on the podcast, just send it in to tips@deadspin.com with the subject line DEADCAST. You can listen to the show here or download it over at the iTunes store.
