On today's episode, Jason starts things off by briefly talking about the Green Bay Packers beatdown of the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Night Football. The game was basically over in the second quarter, and things went pretty much how most of us thought it would: Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams were too much to handle, and the 49ers offense was too banged up to really changed the Packers defense. Later, Jason explains why he thinks Saturday's game between Michigan and Indiana is essentially a must-win for Jim Harbaugh's Wolverines. But, if they lose, it won't be all bad since Harbaugh could likely just head back to the NFL. Jason runs down the list of teams who could serve as possible landing spots, but says there's one specific team in the AFC that makes the most sense. Plus, former NFL running back and FOX Sports college football analyst Robert Smith swings by to explain how COVID has affected his travel and work schedules as a broadcaster, why he can't envision Jim Harbaugh willingly leaving the University of Michigan even if the Wolverines continue to disappoint this season, why he is understanding of the fact that Trevor Lawrence's COVID recovery protocol at Clemson is different than Graham Mertz's at Wisconsin, why he's hopeful that all the uncertainty surrounding this year's College Football Playoff will force the committee to expand to 8 teams, why he'd love to see a team like the University of Cincinnati get a playoff berth, and much more! Finally, Jason closes things off with a special NFL Week 9 4-pack edition of The Best Bet.
