The show must go on! Better late than never!

This episode required a fight with Mother Nature on two fronts. First, during recording, Hurricane Ian unleased his fury on the Pettey household. Followed shortly by another appearance at our Charlotte studio that delayed production for a couple more days. But don't fret!

This week, several high-profile SEC games are on the slate, finally! The Kentucky Wildcats vi...

Week 4 is headlined by a classic SEC matchup with the Florida Gators traveling to face their rival Tennessee Volunteers. Later, a nightcap at  “Jerry World” in Dallas between Arkansas and Texas A&M should be a slug fest that will go a long way in shaping both teams' seasons. Finally, do our favorites, Ole Mis...

After an exciting first week of college football we are pumped about this loaded slate of week 2 games! Last week, traditional powers Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs flexed their muscles and a former power stirred in the swamp as the Florida Gators took down the top-10 ranked Utah Utes. This begged the question: is the SEC East more competitive than the SEC West in 2022? 

The Crimson Tide are prepping for a breakfast match...
