MotSaG Podcast Episode 20

This week Chip and myself had the great opportunity to get to talk with David Mormino to talk about TTUN recent recruiting class. David who can be found on twitter @davidmormino is a proud member of and Cohost on @GoBlueRadio. Chip and David discussed about some of the TTUN recruits Jim Harbaugh received for 2015 class plus who has early enrolled for the Wolverines. Naturally the hot topic of Mike Weber was brought up and David didn’t play the homer card and was a true college football fan about the whole situation. It was a great pleasure having him on our show.

The second half of the podcast we had Kevin McGuire who we always love have join our show. Kevin can be found on twitter @KevinonCFB, you can find his work on and Chip and Kevin discussed the Class that James Franklin has coming in for Penn State next season. Franklin pulled in a Top 15 class plus seems there was a twitter war between PSU and Pitt.

These were two great guests and we are thankful for them taking the time out of their busy schedules to join us. I would suggest checking out there work they are really great at what they do and will help you become extremely smart around your family and friends. Especially the ones from the fans of these teams that think they know eveything but they don’t since they aren’t smart enough to follow smart guys like David and Kevin. Hope you enjoy the show this week.
