Welcome to the latest College Football Unfiltered Podcast!

With the start of the College Football season last weekend, there’s a lot to talk about. I had planned to post each Thursday, but it looks like Tuesday is a much more ideal day because the games are still fresh on everyone’s minds.

Here’s a quick rundown of topics covered in this episode:
* Alabama head coach Nick Saban explaining playing both QB’s
* Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney praising both of his QB’s
* Ohio State running back Mike Weber talking about Coach Day’s debut, being great to be healthy and back on the field, and being part of a great 1-2 punch with JK Dobbins
* Lots of Georgia content with Demetrius Robertson talking about his TD and his first game in a Georgia uniform, quarterback Jake Frohm on Roberton’s TD and the win being great for getting the sour taste out of their mouth after how last season ended and running back D’Andre Swift talking about how he loved getting going early on and explained how this game helped to build up his confidence
* Penn State head coach Jeff Franklin talking about giving App State credit for a great game, weak play from special teams, and why he wants his coaches to remind players there’s a need to celebrate a well-earned win
* Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray talking about feeling good about his first college start and he broke down a couple of his big plays

A Conversation With Rashad McCants About His Book “Plantation Education”

Basketball, Interviews, Podcasts

This month I had the pleasure of reading an advance copy of the new book from Rashad McCants called “Plantation Education.”

To say it was an eye-opener was an understatement. The first chapter dealt with some history that I had a tough time learning about, but, reading this book is something that is going to help me change some ways that I coach my basketball team this season and it will help me better understand some social issues that need to change.

Having the chance to chat with Rashad about his book was a treat and it’s something I think will be a different listen but a Podcast you’ll really enjoy.

Some of the topics we covered during our chat include:

* There’s a lot of history that I learned reading this book and Rashad explained why it didn’t take long to complete his research
* He has a bunch of great ideas for NCAA reform in Chapter 7 that we dig into and discuss why it’s unlikely the NCAA would consider any of them
* Why Australia, Europe or the G League are ideal options for elite high school athletes instead of college ball
* North Carolina has a Confederate statue on campus that’s been up since 1913 and if he’d known about it he wouldn’t have attended UNC
* Why it’s important that an Audio Book is being released as well
* Some highlights of working on this book with his sister, Rashada McCants
