Great content

Love the chemistry and content of the show!

Not particularly good

They appear very confident they know better than a lot of “experts” you see on TV, but they most certainly do not

Fire Jack

Jack is so bad. He sounds like a 3rd grader learning how to talk on a phone for the first time. Brandon is the only one who really knows college football and he deserves better than these idiots. Brandon and Kayce are fine but let’s leave the kids’ mics off.
