Awesome Podcast!

Been a fan of Matt since his blog days at the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. Always a voice of level-headed reason in this world where everyone seems to have unrealistic views and opinions. Love this show!

Coaching Staff

This is a great podcast but I think if this season continues to go down the tubes then we need to hear a podcast that breaks down the coaching staff. I think it’s increasingly obvious that the coaching staff is not adequately preparing these guys for battle. We’re also getting nothing from their limited press conference answers. Whitner was a breathe of fresh air with his direct talk on the problems with the defense and defensive coaching. This has been a very depressing season thus far.
