    S02E25: Championship Call Compilation (feat. Dean Pees, Bud Foster, Don Brown, and more)

    S02E25: Championship Call Compilation (feat. Dean Pees, Bud Foster, Don Brown, and more)

    This is Season 2 Episode 25, a bonus compilation of all the answers to the "Championship Call" question, at the end of the podcast, for all first-time guests. This episode answers all the way back to Episode 1, with the following coaches giving their answers, including former NFL and college coaches Dean Pees, Bud Foster, Don Brown, Ron Roberts, Nate Woody, Cortney Braswell, Ben Robertson, Nick Davis, as well as high school coaches: Kyle Cogan, Chad McGehee, Pat Fox, Marc Marinelli, Jacob Gill, and Robert Rubel.

    Sprinkled throughout the answers, are responses from the "other podcast I was on," where I asked the same question. Since I don't own the rights to the audio, I simply just regurgitated what the coaches said, which includes college coaches: Patrick Toney, Bert Watts, Brian Vaughn (Blitzology), Brandon Lechtenberg, Dante Bartee, Mark Duda, and high school coaches: Adam Gaylor, Cody Alexander, Ty Gower, Rob Everett, Jerry Gordon, and Slade Calhoun. I even have Oregon OC, Joe Moorhead's answer from an offensive perspective!
