    Is Wayne Matthews MSU football's top defensive transfer? How is MSU basketball lacking leadership?

    Is Wayne Matthews MSU football's top defensive transfer? How is MSU basketball lacking leadership?

    PFF has been high on the transfer of linebacker Wayne Matthews, and do we agree he's the best defensive transfer under Jonathan Smith and MSU football so far? And how high up should the pass rush be on the list of concerns for MSU?
    We also talk about how the recent College Football Playoff changes will help Michigan State and debate if the switch to 12 teams will help or hurt the sport.
    And finally, we get to MSU basketball and wonder how on earth its gotten to the point where Davis Smith is the lone leader on this team.

    MSU basketball gets run off court by Iowa; Are all hopes of a good March gone?

    MSU basketball gets run off court by Iowa; Are all hopes of a good March gone?

    MSU basketball got rolled off its own court against Iowa. From what on earth is going on at the center position to wondering why Xavier Booker was zeroed out in the second half, we wear our hearts on our sleeves for this one.

    Will MSU football vs. Iowa be a coin toss?; Can MSU basketball keep it going vs. Iowa, Owen Freeman?

    Will MSU football vs. Iowa be a coin toss?; Can MSU basketball keep it going vs. Iowa, Owen Freeman?

    Michigan State football has a few 50/50 games on their schedule, but none of them could be more important than the game against Iowa. How will Iowa look coming into the season, and does Trent Condon of Locked On Hawkeyes see the game as a coin toss too?
    We then chat Iowa vs. MSU basketball and whether or not the Hawkeyes have the firepower and the defense to pull off the massive upset at Breslin Center.

    Biggest risks of Jonathan Smith's offseason for MSU football; MSU basketball MUST win at Michigan

    Biggest risks of Jonathan Smith's offseason for MSU football; MSU basketball MUST win at Michigan

    Michigan State football has had a pretty standard offseason, but what risks have Jonathan Smith taken so far? Also, EA Sports dropped the huge news of NCAA Football 25 coming out this summer, and we can't wait to ignore our responsibilities for those sunny months.
    We then talk MSU basketball vs. Michigan and how it would be nothing short of infuriating if MSU doesn't win on Saturday.
    We chat all that and more with Kevin Grech of Can't Read Can't Write.

    Malik Hall silencing doubters in MSU basketball win over Penn State; MSU fotball bowl projection

    Michigan State basketball picked up its second conference road win thanks to dynamite performances from Malik Hall, Jaden Akins and Carson Cooper. Is this enough to have MSU fans feeling good about the future of this season, or what else is still holding us back from believing?

To many ads

Good content, but the amount of ads takes away from that content. I shouldn’t have to skip through 1/3 of the podcast just to get to the content

jsjdbrcrhdbfvdnsjbf ,

Cut the Ads

Good listen but way too much Ads. All the locked on pods drown you with Ads $$$$$$

Jose Valentine's Mustache ,

Best host in the biz!

Sheehan is truly fantastic. Reporting and giving analysis as a fan is tough, but Sheehan does it in a silky smooth way.

Discovered the podcast before the worst msu football season & most frustrating basketball season of my fanhood, and I listen every day because of the host. That’s how good he is at his job of keeping the listener engaged, informed and relatable.
