This week we are joined by special guest and newest blog contributor, Alex McDaniel, to discuss Steven Godfrey’s docuseries ‘Foul Play’. We talk about her role in the series, get her take on why it worked so well, what it means for the investigation, and why the ‘Bag Man’ piece was the perfect segue into this deep dive into the impermissible benefit abyss.

We also talk about CROOTAPALOOZA and how this crazy phenomenon is part of every day college football recruiting life now. Ben and Nick share their own real-life experiences and what those weekends mean for not only Ole Miss and the rest of the SEC, but for the landscape of college athletics. And Alex chimes in and talks about old, rich dudes and their expensive jackets.

We take a look at the eight teams who made it to Omaha and who we think will win it all. And we also give our taeks on the best hashtag nickname heading into this weekend’s festivities, and why Ole Miss sports is pain, forever and always.

The season might be over, but you can still go see Greg and snag some choice meat to grill out for graduation from LB’s Meat Market, the official sponsor of this here podcast and the best protein for your Ole Miss baseball grilling needs. Also, the BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW food truck will be out and about on The Square. So go get some!

And if you like gambling and good food AND watching postseason baseball, head down south to Biloxi after the regional to Harrah’s Gulf Coast for some blackjack, slots, Southern cooking from our good friend, Kelly English, at the Magnolia House, and SOON TO BE HOME TO A SPORTSBOOK. What’s not to like? Winning money, drinking, indoor/outdoor sports bar, STARBUCKS, and our pal Kelly whipping stuff up in a crock pot probably. Go down to the Coast and tell em Red Cup sent ya!
