LISTEN: Special guest Marq Burnett on the defensive staff shakeup, playoffs, and more

This week’s pod has a lot to cover: Staff shakeup, playoffs, early signing day, and more.

NCAA Football: CFP National Championship-Clemson vs Alabama Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Wes and Brad return after a two week hiatus. They are joined by one of the best out there — Alabama’s beat writer for SEC Country, Marq Burnett.

Today’s show breaks down Jeremy Pruitt’s move and we discuss his potential replacement, involving Tosh Lupoi and the new defensive hire, Pete Golding. Plus: the national media is still mad that Alabama made the playoffs; we talk some basketball; and, we prepare you for the first-ever early signing period next week.

We will be back the week of the Sugar Bowl with an episode you won’t want to miss, and for our iTunes folks, rest assured: the ability to listen and download is on the way. For now, grab a cuppa’ and dig in.

As always, a special thank you to today’s guest, Marq Burnett. Marq was hired away by the AJC/SEC Country from the Anniston Star, where he was and remains simply one of the best beat writers in the local game. He is on Twitter at @Marq_Burnett.

As a crossover promo, we definitely recommend reading Marq’s most recent piece with SEC Country: Is Alabama the villain of college football? Levi Wallace certainly thinks so, and he’s not alone. That pairs nicely with part of today’s podcast discussion, the lingering fallout of Alabama’s inclusion in its fourth straight College Football Playoff.

Roll Tide.
