Philip DeFranco receives between 20-40 Million views per month of his daily show on YouTube. He has 6.3M subscribers on YouTube. For reference, the ESPN youtube channel has 4.4M subscribers.
Today he uploaded a video titled: The NCAA Does Not Care About Student Athletes And Here's The Proof...
There's nothing new in the video for frequent visitors to this site. But, points of interest:
- The OSU/Meyer bit starts at 16:55 in the video.
- Maryland/Durkin starts at 21:00
- Jalen Rose (briefly) at 1:44
TLDR: The video argues the NCAA was founded to protect athletes despite recent statements by the NCAA implying it is not their job to protect athletes. As a result, athletes are subjected to abusive leaders at a disproportionately high level. DeFranco implies at the end that coaches, assistant coaches, athletic departments, local journalists and the NCAA are not attempting to fix the problem, so he is raising awareness. His suggestion is to create an independent investigative entity. Video ends with a long scrolling list of abusive coaches.
