I-80 Football Show: Examining the new era in college football and how Ohio State fits in

Three giants in the football coaching world are either retired or looking for new jobs! Welcome to a new era

Welcome to a new episode of “The I-80 Football Show.” On this show, we travel down I-80 to talk all things Big Ten Football. This is the only Big Ten Podcast that’ll cover all 18 teams. After every week of action, we will catch you up on all the conference’s games and look ahead at the matchups, storylines, and players you should be paying attention to for the next week. My name is Jordan Williams, and I am joined by my co-host Dante Morgan.

Congrats to the 2023 National Champion Michigan Wolverines. In this episode, Dante and Jordan discuss Michigan’s win over Washington for their first national championship in almost three decades. With a dominant run game and Michael Penix Jr. playing the worst game of his season Michigan cruised to a victory. Jordan may be hating but Michigan might be the most annoying National Champion of all time by trying to play the victim after their cheating scandal.

In other news, there have been seismic changes to the football landscape. Nick Saban retired from Alabama while Pete Carroll and Bill Belichick have parted ways with the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots respectively. Three titans in the industry with a combined 900 wins and 16 Super Bowls and national championships are either retired or looking for new jobs. Whether you like it or not, 2024 is the start of a new era.

With all the changes in the sport, the guys talk about Alabama and Washington’s coaching searches. Ohio State is making drastic changes to their coaching staff while Lincoln Riley has finished filling out his defensive staff hiring some big names. Despite all the big names, we’re not sure this is enough to fix their defensive issues. Ice Cube getting an award named after him is the subject of our weekly pitstop. Why do the NBA and the Basketball Hall of Fame continue to mess up anytime they try to add a new element to the sport?
