Outsports ran a column from a closeted Division I college basketball player who is gay, who is wrestling with whether he should come out. "I would like other people to see another gay athlete successfully playing in Division 1 athletics. I would like for a teenager battling the same things I struggled with to see that things will work out and to not stress about something that seems so major but is really something minor. I would like to see the LGBT community grow within athletics."

We also discuss Aaron Rodgers and the double standard of how straight and gay athletes publicize their sexual orientation.
