Today's Slate comes to you from the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, home of constant rain and inconstant internet access. Lucky it's such a slow news day, eh?

<section class="s-news"><p>The big news in college football is that the Chicago district of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled that football players at Northwestern were employees of the university and were therefore entitled to form a union. Predictably, there has been some handwringing over this, as well as some premature dancing on college football's grave. As always, the mothership has your back and parses out the decision.

As this news broke yesterday, I suspect it has already been discussed ad nauseum on yesterday's Slate. But dead horse puree is a popular beverage on slow news days, yes?

In a somewhat related news tidbit, Dennis Dodd talks to K-State president Kirk Schulz about the NCAA steering committee and its role in a swiftly changing world.</p>
