Bets FCS Podcast in the Country

Nobody knows the FCS like Sam Herder. He is to FCS football what Adrian Wojnarowski is to the NBA. If you went to an FCS school or love that division, this is your podcast. If you went to an FBS school and your squad is playing a team from the FCS, this is your podcast.

Give it a listen; you won’t be disappointed.
