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.

On the March Madness NCAAB podcast with Michelle:

#1 Silvio De Sousa of the Kansas Jayhawks and Kansas University is under investigation after it was learned that De Sousa was receiving money from a booster and an agent. De Sousa must sit out this season and next season but he’s not worried he.

#2 LSU Tigers’ Will Wade is under investigation regarding wire fraud. Wade was wire tapped by the FBI funneling funds to families of player recruits at Louisville, Kansas, and North Carolina State. Also, it was reported that Wade was frustrated in trying to obtain high school player from a Louisiana High School Javonte Smart in negotiating terms. It was not confirmed if Wade was in violation of NCAA rules as there is no confirmation of Wade funneling the money to the families or if they accepted the money.
