  • Must Listen for Serious Football Fans

    I’ve listened to a ton of football pods and this is top 2 most interesting, insightful, entertaining. Robert does an excellent job with the show. This is a real serious look into the game daily(ish) with interesting guests and interesting topics. It’s always my first listen during the season and I even appreciate the off-season episodes. If you are a serious football fan and you give it an honest try I have no clue how you wouldn’t love this show.

  • One of the best in the podcast game

    Robert Mays has always been one of my favorite football writers since Grantland, and he has a spot here that allows him to do great work. Pairing him with Nate Tice is the best team since it was him and Barnwell. Keep it up!
