Three days before the college football national championship game, star quarterback LeMarcus James (James) and teammate Emmett Sunday (Ludwig) ignite a player’s strike declaring they won’t compete until all student-athletes are fairly compensated. With billions of dollars on the line, the stakes could not be higher as their head coach (Simmons) and various stakeholders (Tim Blake Nelson, Andrew Bachelor, David Koechner, Jeffrey Donovan, Lil Rel Howery, Timothy Olyphant Kristin Chenoweth, and Uzo Aduba,) race to protect or destroy the prevailing collegiate athletics system.
