John Oliver spent 20 minutes viciously ripping apart the NCAA on his show this weekend, which included a sad and hilarious parody of EA’s NCAA games called March Sadness 2015.

In March Sadness — rated E for exploitation, of course — players have to avoid doing things like:

Eating a sandwich you didn’t pay for!

Potentially ruining everything you’ve worked for with a single injury!

While 20 minutes long, the whole segment is worth watching, especially if you’re sports fan looking to be bummed out by something you enjoy.


  • Well done! The video is not available in this country.
    Would have thought it would be logical to check for these sort of issues before posting a story in another country. But apparently not.
    Time to fire up the VPN.

  • Perfect summary of the hypocrisy of the NCAA. Billions and billions of dollars made off the back of the players and they’ll rule a homeless player ineligible for accepting a couch to sleep on.

  • Why do they even need a ladder, they can already jump and hang onto it. Just cut the net one handed.
