Good CFB Info…

Steven is fantastic. Kinda wish there was a different co-host (Braden is super negative and kinda a jerk) but overall good show and CFB info

UPDATE: Braden mentioned this on air and thought it was because I thought he was being negative about my team… dude I’m a Kansas fan you should be negative about my team… take a look at the last podcast you were literally negative about EVERY program lol

Athlon Sports Podcast

I have listened to Gall and Lassan for about 8 months and prefer it over Cover 3.
No hot takes. Athlon focuses on topics that would benefit CFB as a whole, and embrace changes/trends in the game—similar Athlon Magazine topics.
Insightful, not concerned with criticism and being wrong.
I purchase the Athlon CFB and baseball magazines. Highly recommend supporting quality journalism. Well crafted assessments of teams, which is far better than baseless social media arguments.

Gall is accommodating in regards to being a guest on other podcasts, and I respect that.

Best CFB podcast!

UGA homer/SEC fan (except UF) here. I came to this podcast after hearing Steven on That SEC Podcast. By the way, GREAT hearing Braden on there, too! Anyway this show is great. Braden and Steven cover CFB better than the rest. I don’t agree with the negative reviews. The hosts balance each other and offer solid content. I look forward to each episode, AND becoming a more knowledgeable CFB fan. And now look forward to the CFB magazine! Thanks fellas and keep up the great work!
