- THE STRAIGHT DOPE: One of the things ML likes best about running for office is new life experiences, but even he never expected to end up behind the pulpit at Greater Burnette Baptist Church. Find out how it happened, and see and hear highlights of how it went by watching the replay of the Facebook Live broadcast of the show at ML ELRICK. For the full church experience, watch here.
- The Great Debate is back, but the subject is a familiar one: Student-athlete compensation. Sounding like the old man that he is, ML rails at the NCAA’s decision to allow student athletes to profit from their names, images and likenesses.
