The big story this past week was the proposal by the NCAA working group of a 12-team College Football Playoff. Matt and Gene dove into the specifics of that proposal on their emergency podcast last Thursday, but there is still much to talk about surrounding the subject.

Expanding on their edition of You’re Nuts from Monday wherein they debated the logistics of an expanded playoff system, Gene and George talk about what they like and what they dislike about a larger postseason field. They discuss the positives of an eight or 12-team CFP, like a more important bowl season and the potential for a greater distribution of talent, as well as some of the negatives, like a virtually NFL-length season and de-facto automatic invites for schools like Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State.

They finish up this week’s episode by discussing some of the latest happenings surrounding a busy month of Ohio State recruiting. They talk about the biggest name set to be on campus this upcoming weekend, as well as some of the guys you should keep on your radar as potential BOOOM candidates as the Crystal Ball predictions begin to roll in and the rumor mill continues to swirl thanks to a litany of visitors flocking to Columbus this June.

Hangout in the Holy Land will be dropping every Wednesday throughout the offseason, and will return to its usual twice-a-week schedule once the regular season gets underway. Be sure to download and listen in wherever you get your podcasts, and leave us a review on Apple to let us know your thoughts and how we can make things even better!
