The biggest college football news of our lives dropped a couple weeks ago! Nick Saban retired and Kalen Deboer has been hired as his replacement for the Alabama Crimson Tide Football Team.

The news shocked the world, so Michael and Daniel caught up to talk about it. Please excuse the voice quality of both cohosts as they both sound like they need serious sinus medication! But, the show must go on.

It’s Bowl Season. What better time for a comeback from your favorite podcast hosts?

Pettey and Michael are back to give their final thoughts on a wild College Football Season. We also discuss playoff expansion and how the changing landscape affects teams like Ole Miss and even Tulane.  The age old question, “when will Saban retire”, takes the stage as we debate and how the King of College Football keeps getting it done.

There may be a discussion about the small tilt in Tuscaloosa between Pettey’s favorite Rebels and Micheal’s beloved Crimson Tide. But who knows if we'll have the time? LOL.

Who are we kidding, with Kiffin calling for “Crumbling Castles” and all the q...

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...

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...
