The depth of conversation is incredible

The hosts do such a great job really diving deep on these issues. Especially those that few others will dare talk about. Great work

Great Content!

As a higher education/student affairs professional not directly involved with athletics, TCS is a great resource for students who are interested in pursuing a collegiate athletic career. These podcasts also provide great information for all Student Life professionals to better understand various athletic programs. TCS should absolutely be shared with all parents and future student athletes, Chris and Mark give great advice and have excellent insight! Keep it up!

Excellent, informative, entertaining

Very impressed so far. Some really good information here for parents of current and prospective college athletes, including valuable insights from college coaches themselves on what they look for in recruits, social media safety, do's and don'ts, and much more. Great job, guys, keep it up!
