On this episode, College Football is back! Week Zero kicks off this weekend and PGF is going to get you guys ready for the College Football season with this preview episode. Brad tells you 5 college football coaches who he thinks are on the hot seat this season, plus the first "Pick Six" of the year with six betting picks for this weekend's games and guest Shehan Jeyarajah from CBS Sports gets us ready for college football and you might be surprised which team he thinks could fall from the top 3 and which unranked teams he thinks could finish in the top 10.
Shehan is a national college football writer for CBS Sports and is a host of "The College Football Survivor Show" podcast.
Here are the questions we asked Shehan:
• The biggest off season story that I want to get your thoughts on was UCLA and USC joining the Big Ten, what was your reaction to this news?
• These 2 schools joining the Big Ten sent shockwaves through college football and makes many of us, myself included believe conference realignment isn't over yet. From what you're hearing, which schools are most likely to move conferences next?
• In the last 25 years, only 32 of 75 teams in the AP pre season top 3, actually finished in the top 3, who falls out this season?
• Every year we see a couple pre season top 10 teams finish unranked, if you had to make an educated guess for this season, who are those teams?
• On average we see 2 teams start the season unranked but finish in the top 10, who could be those teams this year?
• The transfer portal in college football has become almost like free agency in the NFL, and just like the NFL some moves make a big impact and some don't Iive up to the hype. Which transfers will make the biggest impact this year in college football?
• Every year it seems like more and more freshman enter programs and become big time contributors right away. Who are some freshman at top 25 programs to watch out for this year?
• I recently had national recruiting analyst Ryan Wright of Rivals on the podcast and he believes because of the NIL, schools such as Oregon and USC will quote: "Have the opportunity to be major players on the national level" NIL has changed the game off the field for college football, what schools DO you see benefitting the most from NIL deals?
• You recently wrote an article for CBS Sports on overrated and underrated teams after the AP Top 25 was released, who's the most overrated and underrated this season?
