The Washington Nationals brand has been able to flourish in the nation's capital, something that could not be said for the two other versions of Major League Baseball which have existed there during the last hundred years prior. David McElwee discusses how The Nationals have maintained supremacy over the summers in D.C., despite the fact that the area's favorite sport of choice is politics. McElwee imparts his wisdom on how to eliminate that divide, especially when there are groups of stark differences who have to be catered to within the ballpark at the same time. McElwee covers some of the things that have made news for The Nationals in recent years, including the ticket restrictions on Phillies fans and outfielder Bryce Harper's Spring Training tweet that ignited thousands of phone calls for a two hour window in March 2013.

First at Paine College, now at Clayton State. But Duncan's story is much richer than that, working at two different FBS institutions as part of the senior staff in development, as well as his time in Corporate America, both as a businessman and entrepreneur. Duncan discusses his journey, as well as how he continues to strive to grow each department's revenue opportunities by engaging community members with a business mentality usually unseen by campus administrators. And he discusses why it's okay to have the same name as someone who is much more famous, especially when he lists the alternatives available. Twitter: @TimDuncanAD

Donovan offers up several examples of why the NCAA's rules may be misunderstood, but also continue to hold an incredible amount of value to each member school.
