    Welcome to The Single Wing, where Steven Godfrey takes subscriber questions on a wide range of college football topics. This week, Godfrey's officially issuing a Gangster AD badge (Go Vawls), and we're also discussing the come-up at Virginia Tech, the veteran plains-ish states head coach most likely to sneak into a title game (Go Utes), and the delightful mash-up of the Nick Saban and Bill Snyder eras. Plus, let's talk about an X-Men cartoon. Why not?

    How a pro football personnel director sees college football

    How a pro football personnel director sees college football

    Richard has a conversation with Eric Galko, the director of football operations and player personnel for the East-West Shrine Bowl. It’s wide-ranging: Eric shares his 2024 NFL Draft hot takes and QB rankings, then talks about how the NFL views college players—and how well their programs are developing them. Eric tells us whether NIL actually ruined the third day of the draft. And having developed the XFL kickoff plan that is now part of the NFL, Eric shares whether college football is ready to implement the same thing.
    Production: Anthony Vito.

    The Eyes List: Spring sitrep on 2024's most fireable coaches

    The Eyes List: Spring sitrep on 2024's most fireable coaches

    This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit www.splitzoneduo.com

    In 2023, Neal Brown was the industry's most fireable head coach. Then he had a good enough year to get a small contract extension. Who is 2024’s most fireable coach? Well, there are a few contenders. Godfrey, Richard, and Alex take the temperature on a handful of coaches who look troubled as spring ball gives way to what could be their final offseasons in their current jobs. Who has the best chance to resurrect his tenure, and who is in trouble? And in the case of Billy Napier, are all 7-5 records created equal?

    Week 1 of 2024 is ... surprisingly bare. Why?

    Week 1 of 2024 is ... surprisingly bare. Why?

    Week 1 has always had tons of warmup games, but the schedule usually has a big handful of bangers. In 2024, that’s not the case. There are barely any games pitting Power 4 teams against each other and as a trickle-down, not many all-Group of 5 matchups of note either. Yes, there are a few blockbusters (LSU-USC, Georgia-Clemson), but look beyond that, and you’ll see the issue.
    Is this just a scheduling coincidence, or are recent changes in the college football ecosystem taking a toll on Labor Day Weekend over multiple years? Godfrey leads an investigation and discussion about what’s up with Week 1.

    How we fix the rules in college football

    How we fix the rules in college football

    Richard has ideas for how to make college football’s on-field rules a little bit better. Alex and Godfrey like some of them and don’t like others. Let’s discuss the optimal width for the hashmarks, whether it’s time to shift the rules around RPOs and linemen downfield, the NFL’s new take on the kickoff, and then some more chaotic ideas that we’ve been kicking around. Production: Anthony Vito.

Godfrey has lost the plot

I hope espn has hired this man because the playoff water carrying during the last month is absurd

Alex has good politics

I’m just in it for whenever he inserts them into the show. Don’t know much about cfb, just watch enough to know it’s dubs down forever.
