The Sports World is full of scams and scandals these days, and the Nati Boys kick things off by discussing the latest news out of Louisville, where the Cardinals were forced to vacate their 2013 men’s basketball National Championship. Meanwhile, a pending FBI investigation could rock the college basketball world and lead to the downfall of many high profile coaches and basketball programs. In Olympic news, even the Russian curling team is doping, and we discuss the Hungarian skier from California who hustled her way to the PyeongChang. Finally, Jefe drops a confession on us that’s worthy of an FBI investigation itself, which leads us to our fantasy draft of our favorite fast food menu items.
This week the College GameDay crew stormed onto Virginia Tech’s campus in Blacksburg, Virginia. With GameDay back on a college campus where it belongs, I expected a better turnout than last week’s NYC showing. The nerds at Virginia Tech did not disappoint.
As expected, Dabo Swinney took another beating. This week made more sense since Virginia Tech is playing Clemson, but there’s no doubt that Dabo is the inspiration for a large percentage of all GameDay signs this year. I’m not a fan of how easy GameDay-goers are letting Nick Saban off these days, but maybe we’ll see Saban signs pick up once they get into the meat of the SEC schedule and he does something to be a dickhead.
