Must listen for CFB fans
Athlon’s does a great job on the pod. Sure, they spend more time on the big boys than the other teams, buts it’s a national pod. They usually touch on everyone. It’s a must listen during the summer as the season draws closer.
After usc/ucla news broke hosts got on the soapbox. Don’t need a kecture
Just wanna leave this comment for you guys especially Braden, the intro sound is extremely nostalgic to me, always gives me good vibes from Summer 2019 chilling on my back porch listening to the pod. That 2019 season was good. Sometimes I click on an ep just to hear the intro. Take care
