On the NCAAF podcast with Michelle:

#1 Lane Kiffin head coach at the University of Mississippi said that college players will head to where they’ll get the opportunity to get paid the most. It will be a bidding war between universities for example Travis Hunter selected Jackson State over Florida State, Georgia and Auburn.

#2 Western Kentucky quarterback Bailey Zappe set the all time NCAAF record for passing yards that was set by Texas Tech quarterback BJ Symons in 2003 at 5,833 yards. Zappe broke the record on Sat Dec 18th’s game when he threw for a 44 yard pass to wide receiver Jerreth Sterns in the second quarter against the Appalachian State Mountaineers.

#3 Fifth year quarterback Myles Brennan said he’s exiting the transfer portal and will remain at LSU the announcement was made before LSU starting quarterback Max Johnson said he was transferring. Brennan said “there’s no place like home” and “lets go Tiger nation” upon announcing that he’s staying.
