    Belly of the Beast: Quinn Meinerz's gut-sy jump up NFL Draft boards

    Andy welcomes University of Wisconsin-Whitewater offensive lineman and NFL hopeful Quinn Meinerz to the show. Meinerz walks Andy through the process of his upcoming Pro Day. What is the procedure for a Pro Day amidst a pandemic (1:30)?

CANADA WORKOUT Youtube video...that's all I gotta say (7:30). Having trained and practiced alongside one of his peers, Rashawn Slater, an early-round NFL prospect himself, what did Meinerz learn from that experience (9:45)? What were Senior Bowl practices like and who was his favorite player to play against (13:30)? So, Meinerz broke his hand and still wanted to play/start in the Senior Bowl...hardcore. Plus, what's his response to "how much do you love football"? A question routinely posed by scouts and coaches during the interview process (19:00)? Did Meinerz work during college? How has wrestling shaped his football career, and what's with the "Belly of the Beast" (20:15)? Lastly, what has a wider reach on social media done for Meinerz's chance to give back, and did he ever, in his wildest dreams, believe he'd be an NFL player (29:00)?

    Ranking Big Ten's jobs & chain restaurants with a $50 gift card + life advice from Ari

    In another rank-filled edition of The Andy Staples Show and Friends, Andy and Ari order the Big Ten's jobs based on a 5-year projection. Sure, number one is obvious (rhymes with Toehio Fate), but what about the guys' second-best job in the conference, and why is it Wisconsin (3:45)? Will Penn or Michigan round out the top-3 (9:00)? Is Lansing an attractive enough location to put Michigan State in the top-5 (16:00)? Which school would win a national title if Nick Saban or Dabo Swinney coached there (22:30)? Who should be ranked 7th; Minnesota or Rutgers (29:30)? OK, let's talk about Nebraska (39:30). Plus, our bottom three (47:45). Andy tasks Ari with ranking Chili's, Applebee's, P.F. Chang's, Outback Steakhouse, and Olive Garden while also considering he has a $50 gift certificate (53:15). Lastly, we further explore the inner workings of Ari's mind as he dispenses life advice, gambling style (1:03:30).
