Not bad.

They’re used to be some debate when Mitch was on but now there is no disagreement. Still, good info and the hosts both have agreeable voices. One of the better national college football podcasts.

Update: where else can I vent about 5 sub .500 SEC teams making bowl games while 9-2 Army stays home. But then this is a SEC homer podcast.

Time for me to go

Long time listener, but recently I feel like they spend less and less time actually talking about the games. Nothing against Steven but I do think the show took a hit when Mitch left.

It can get very political at times and that’s just not what I enjoy listening to when it comes to a college football podcast. It’s a shame because I do enjoy some of the content every so often. Wish Athlon the best, but this podcast just isn’t for me anymore.

Lefty Whines

Vert much a lefty socialist agenda. Cried about playing this year. Cry about athletes being ‘exploited’ even though these same players begged to play and put up with all kinds of hardships to get to play. Doesn’t sound like they feel exploited.
