The self-imposed suspension on Jim Harbaugh will only limit him to the first three games of the 2023 season. Jim Harbaugh will be back on field for Rutgers in Week 4 as Michigan decided to handle the allegations against their head coach in-house. The guys discuss how relevant recruiting violations will be in the future as they don’t seem to impact key programs and coaches that immensely.
Notre Dame has the most exciting matchup for Week 0 in college football, so Dan & Pat discuss the state of the Fighting Irish program and how Marcus Freeman will do in year two. The coach is winning his players over but Notre Dame fans are hoping he can win more games on the field than in 2022, and the guys suggest that Brian Kelly was taken for granted at Notre Dame because of his prickly attitude.
Big schools are starting to name their starters at quarterback this week. Georgia has stated that Carson Beck will be leading the team in Week 1, while Ohio State and Alabama both have battles that have yet to be decided. Pat & Dan explain how Ryan Day and Nick Saban are taking very different approaches to the college football preseason.
Missouri has made waves this past week with recruiting, both on the field and in the living room of every high school athlete. The University of Missouri was able to land 5-star Williams Nwaneri to play defensive end, wile the state of Missouri enacted a new law where high school athletes who commit to play at an in-state college will be eligible to receive NIL money before going to college.
Lastly, in news of the weird, raccoons and otters are running amok, monster hunters are headed to Loch Ness & the top 15 schools for agriculture were released.
