Interview: Jared Kalmus
The Extended Offseason Interview Series continues—and could soon become the Very Extremely Extended Offseason Interview Series. Matt and Carter are joined by Jared Kalmus of Underdog Dynasty, ostensibly to talk about the outlook for the UTSA Roadrunners in 2020. But there were some minor news items in college football the day of recording: the Ivy League cancelling fall sports, the Big Ten moving to a conference-only schedule, and more. So the guys spend the majority of the episode talking about the ramifications of these decisions for college football as a whole, but don't worry, UTSA fans, there's still plenty of Sincere McCormick discussion.
