    Will paying college athletes cause further divides? What about Title IX? Are more lawsuits coming?

    The NCAA’s decision to pay athletes is one of the most impactful moments in the history of college sports. But making sense of the changes, what they’ll look like and how they’ll play out is not easy. No one knows the landscape better than Ross Dellenger. He’s been covering the changes in college sports for Yahoo! Sports. He breaks down what’s known, what’s unknown and why keeping up with this situation is a little like juggling flaming knives. I’ll let him explain. All that and more on The Jenni Carlson Show.

    Will Sooners, Cowgirls play for the WCWS title? Is top-seeded Texas the softball favorite?

    Let the Women’s College World Series fun begin. Texas is the top seed, but are the Longhorns the favorite? OU and OSU are on the opposite sides of the bracket, so does that make it possible or even probable that we could get a Bedlam matchup in the championship series? Tulsa World columnist Berry Tramel joins me on The Jenni Carlson Show to discuss that and more. Plus, how the Thunder looks now in light of the Mavericks’ dominance in the Western Conference Finals and what we remember of the late, great Bill Walton.

    Even with OU's struggles, no one's lining up to face the Sooners in the postseason

    Even with OU's struggles, no one's lining up to face the Sooners in the postseason

    Upsets have become the name of the game in college softball. Last week alone, seven of the top 10 teams in the national polls suffered at least one loss. That hit the locals, too, as OU lost to BYU and OSU lost a series to Iowa State. Is it a sign of parity or something else? Softball America’s Tara Henry breaks down the national scene and much more on The Jenni Carlson Show.
