ESPN asked Joe Kay (who was badly hurt in a 2004 h.s. basketball court storming) about Auburn's $250K SEC fine for fans rushing the field. "I'm fed up with the charade of caring about individual safety of the players & fans — I think all the universities care about is the bottom line." He said the NCAA, conferences, colleges & officials should be held accountable for failing to maintain safe environments & "the police should ticket or arrest all fans who enter places where they're not allowed."
Kevin Negandhi and Kirk Herbstreit kick off the podcast by talking about College GameDay's first trip to Minnesota, Wisconsin's Big Ten West clinching victory, a classic Iron Bowl (8:27), Auburn fans wanting Gus Malzahn fired early in the season and whether Nick Saban will make changes to his defensive staff. Then, the guys get into Ohio State's two-decades long domination of Michigan (22:49), the Wolverines' conundrum and Jim Harbaugh needing to close the talent gap. Next, Kevin and Herbie discuss Dabo Swinney's postgame rant (38:45), playoff scenarios going into championship weekend (51:11) and the already spinning coaching carousel.
