Some really amazing stories

Hearing Kris and Molly discussing their travel and weather related nightmares shows a lot of dedication. Here is hoping that future issues hopefully will not have too many nightmares regarding missing makeup bags, getting different clothing to wear, where to get food on the go, etc.

best cfb insight

I look forward to this podcast each week. As someone that roams the sidelines with a camera it’s always so interesting to hear what you guys see - it’s much different than what I tend to see through my two inch screen.

I’m so glad y’all brought the podcast back for this year - hearing about fans back in the stands makes my heart happy. Last year was brutal sans fans but you guys made it better!

If you live college football then you’ll live the program. Great insight from all three ladies!
