As the clock struck midnight on September 30th, the U.S. Government officially "shut it down" (Dirk Nowitzki voice) leading to several questions about how this shutdown would affect all of us, civilians and government personnel.

On Tuesday, the military service academies used social media to inform the public that they were ceasing operations and that upcoming athletic contests were in jeopardy.

The Air Force vs Navy game is back on, but does the shutdown affect other sports interests? Which NBA team provides the Heat with the biggest challenge to 3-peat? Did Lane Kiffin deserve another chance at USC? Is Greg Schiano the culprit in Freeman "LeakGate"? We'll discuss these topics & more on this week's episode of Game Changers Live.

Tune in Wednesday at 7pm EST for A New View from the Sideline.
