Spring Has Sprung (3/25)
Ty and Dan quiz CBS Sports’ Bruce Feldman on the key spring storylines in college football, the hottest position battles at major programs and 90s R&B music.
On today’s episode of the Solid Verbal, Ty and Dan are joined by href="http://www.cbssports.com/columns/writers/feldman" >Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports to talk about his travels, spring story lines and ‘90s R&B.
They lead off with Butch Jones at Tennessee and how people around the program are warming up to the new head coach, despite a shortage of talent and the problems they’ve faced during the past few years. They go from Tennessee to South Beach to discuss how potent Miami’s offense can be with their returning fire power and how the defense might hold them back in the ACC. Vanderbilt’s up next with James Franklin and how long he will stay in Nashville, plus what hurdles they face trying to break into the next level of the SEC.
Next, Ty asks Feldman about some of the hot-name assistants that might be next in line to jump on the coaching carousel. Feldman fires off a few, including Kirby Smart from Alabama, Chad Morris from Clemson, and Scott Frost from Oregon. An interesting question comes in from Twitter asking whether or not Dana Holgorsen’s seat will heat up at West Virginia if the Mountaineers flop in the Big 12 this year and Feldman discusses the problems they’ll likely face next fall.
Everyone’s offseason favorite in Texas A&M comes up and Feldman talks about their lofty expectations and the depth issues the Aggies have to deal with, especially on defense (Reoccurring offseason theme!). The guys close out the college football talk with the mounting pressure facing Steve Sarkisian at Washington.
The show wraps up with an impressive display of ‘90s R&B knowledge by Feldman and where he plans on visiting over the coming months.
