Michigan State’s Mel Tucker responded to the news surrounding his Title IX investigation and had a different stance than Brenda Tracy, the woman who he is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with. The guys still believe there is little to no chance that Tucker returns to Michigan State, so they go through possible candidates looking to make a splash in the Big Ten.
With all the negativity from coaches and athletic directors in regards to NIL and the transfer portal, Dan decides to do some research and see if it’s impacting parity within college football. Dan explains that the top recruits in the nation are increasingly going to a wider variety of programs and the guys figure the phenomenon stems from universities’ desires for star players and athletes’ desires for earlier playing time.
Week 3 of college football has an odd slate of games, and weeks like this will only increase due to scheduling stubbornness and trying to beat the bottom line. The guys share frustration that the Louisville and Indiana series will only take place this year due to Indiana backing out to play an additional home game vs Indiana State.
