Coaches' salaries, the random spouting of basketball commentators, the fact that elite "student-athletes" are usually just "athletes": no topic was off-limits.
"Saturday Night Live" used its cold open minutes after the end of the Final Four game between Wisconsin and Kentucky to roast the NCAA and the whole system of college sports.
"It's like I tell all my players: college is the most important year of your life," quipped Taran Killam, playing Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski.
On Twitter, people reacted to the sketch with glee, appreciating "SNL" "brutalizing the utter hypocrisy" of the NCAA.
