Steven Godfrey Joins Paul and Brien to Discuss The “Bag Man”

Steven Godfrey from SB-Nation.com joins the guys to talk about the concept of the “Bag Man”. These silent financiers of division I football players have not been quiet enough, as Godfrey investigates their efforts to bring in our nation’s top athletes. In an effort to gain some understanding of this taboo subject, Godfrey approached a few anonymous Bag Men to ask them how their under-the-table “financial” contributions to prospective college football players has helped out their respective programs. The majority of the anonymous patrons that he interviewed were ironically, not financially “well-off” like many of us would expect. Not only are these players getting paid before they arrive on campus, but they continue to receive cash from these bag men through the entirety of their college career.

Road Trip: Fresno and Pittsburgh

B-Straw and Pauly G gas up the car and rip open the sunflower seeds for another road trip. On this trip, the guys cruise west to Fresno, California before finishing the trip in Pittsburgh. Joining the hosts on their first stop is B.J. Antiola from the Fresno Bee, who reports on quarterback Derrek Carr’s pro day. According to Antiola, Carr’s numerous broken school records do not overcome the inconsistencies he has shown on game film, which may hurt his draft status. On their final stop of the trip, the guys are joined by KDKA Pittsburg’s Pat Bostick. Pat is the color commentator of Pittsburgh Panthers football and has a clear idea of how quarterback Tom Savage will fit into the NFL. Bostick states that Savage is a tough quarterback that makes throws under duress; a skill every quarterback must possess at the NFL level.
