Friday Roundup: The “Declaration of iNDependence” Episode

Friday Roundup

Yes, I used "ND" in the middle of a word. I don't care. Eye-roll away. Anyways, after yet another week full of hot takes on why Notre Dame's independence is the worst thing ever and should bar them from the college football playoffs, I felt it was time to devote a whole episode of the Friday Roundup to the topic. If you want a singular thing to pass on to someone that wonders why ND thinks it's so special and is independent, share this episode. If you want to show someone that a strong … [Read more...]

Friday Roundup: The “SEC Media Days” Episode

Friday Roundup

The end to the offseason is nearly in sight. At least, that's what I like to tell myself when SEC Media Days roll around. In all honesty though, before we know it, quotes and sound bites from these mid-July pressers will give way to camps in August. At that point, the season is practically right around the corner.
