SI's Pat Forde returns to the podcast to continue the 12-team playoff discourse. Pete Thamel floated the news this week that conference divisions may be a thing of the past due to playoff expansion. Can we also expect the quarterfinals to eventually be played on campus? Arizona State is in hot water with the NCAA over allegations they hosted recruits during the pandemic dead period. Just how bad is this investigation for the Sun Devils? The guys wrap the podcast with a tribute to former Big East commissioner John Marinatto, who passed recently at the age of 64.
Andy Behrens is joined by Bob Lung, author of the yearly Fantasy Football Consistency Guide to talk about team construction, the Pro Football Hall of Fame and more.
Dan Wetzel and Pete Thamel detail the sweeping changes coming to America's favorite sport. How did we get here? What would we like to change from the initial suggestion & who benefits the most from the expansion? The guys also retroactively look at the best matchups if this format took hold in the past. SI's Pat Forde will return to the pod from Omaha & the Olympic swim trials on our second episode later in the week.
