Chapter XL: College Football Tour w/ Andrew Bauhs

Listen to Chapter XL: College Football Tour w/ Andrew Bauhs

It's something that a lot of college football fans dream of or maybe even consider doing. However, very little fans, if any, actually even try--let alone accomplish such a feat. Of course I am talking about visiting all 130 College Football Stadiums across the country. Yet that's what Andrew Bauhs from College Football Tour is doing. The 5th Grade School teacher, who is an avid Wisconsin Badger fan, has traveled to 84 of the 130 venues on his list. Here is his story.

Chapter XXXIX; College Football's Response to Racism w/ Ron Redden

Listen to Chapter XXXIX; College Football's Response to Racism w/ Ron Redden

It has been a difficult past two weeks in America as the country continues to protest against police brutality and support black lives matter. These protests have even carried over into the college football world, where multiple programs responded to the movement positively, while a few the contrary. In this episode, Ron Redden accompanies Cory Lestochi as they sift through multiple race-related issues college football programs have recently faced. This includes a Clemson assistant coach using the N-word, Tom Herman's response to Black Lives Matter, Oregon State's Rocco Carley's dismissal from the program, FSU's new HC Mike Norvell lying about meeting with his players, Kansas State's Offensive Line Coach, Conor Riley's response, and Pat Narduzzi's use of the word "thug" to his players. It's a jam-packed and enlightening episode, and I hope you enjoy the listen.

Chapter XXXVI: College Football Conspiracies | CFB Playoff Bias

Listen to Chapter XXXVI: College Football Conspiracies | CFB Playoff Bias

College football is unique because it doesn't have a simple playoff system with automatic bids. However, that does leave a ton of room for discussion on who the best teams are. Bring in the College Football Playoff, which has now been around for over 6 seasons. Who are the members of the Selection Committee? What are the rules? How do they rank the best college football teams? Are there biases at play? What is the Early Poll Bias? What is the Confirmation Bias? What is the SEC bias? What is the Money Bias?

Chapter XXXV: Shooting College Football w/Joe Hermitt | Patriot News & PennLive

Listen to Chapter XXXV: Shooting College Football w/Joe Hermitt | Patriot News & PennLive

Photographs. We are told they tell us a lot more than words ever could, yet we tend to overlook the ones taking them. This is especially the case when it comes to college football photographers.

Cory Lestochi welcomes Joe Hermitt, one of the best sport photographers in the business. He discusses what it's like to shoot college football games and the process it takes to achieve the final product you see in the newspaper the next day. He also shares his favorite CFB environments, what it was like photographing Saquon Barkley, and what happens when fan storm the field. He also makes his case for why everyone should be citing photographers when posting their work even if it is as simple as a social media post.

**This is one of my favorite interviews and Joe was awesome.

Chapter XXXIV: Riding the Rutgers Rollercoaster w/Jon Newman | Scarlet Spotlight

Listen to Chapter XXXIV: Riding the Rutgers Rollercoaster w/Jon Newman | Scarlet Spotlight

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights have been the laughing stock of the college football world for the last couple of seasons. They rarely bring in blue-chip talent and when they do they typically have off the field issues. They haven't been to a Bowl game since 2014, and haven't even been within shouting distance of winning the Big Ten East.

So why can't the university that is embedded in one of the nation's recruiting hot spots unable to field a competitive team, let alone a bowl team? Was it always this way? If not, what changed? How can Greg Schiano 2.0 get Rutgers back to mediocrity and bowl games when they look up at the giants in the Big Ten East? Jon Newman, co-host of the Scarlet Spotlight podcast joins me to unravel the answers to these questions and much, much more.
