Here is a rundown of the second episode of One Team, One Podcast:   

Joe Alleva’s role

Bryant led the show today with some thoughts on Alleva. Fair or not, he will be criticized, or praised, for whatever happens with this game.

Alleva has been criticized harshly in recent years, some of which has been warranted. In this case though, Bryant explains why that hate should be placed elsewhere.

The latest for LSU-BYU

Suss says nobody is sure where the Tigers and Cougars will play on Saturday. There is the possibility LSU or BYU could host in Baton Rouge or Provo respectively. Also, the game could be moved to an NFL stadium like the Superdome in New Orleans.

Suss explains that neither school is in a true position of power. ESPN and the AdvoCare Texas Kickoff executives are the ones who will ultimately make the call.

BYU film study

The Cougars were one of the few schools that have already played a game. Head coach Kelani Sitake watched his team grind out a 20-6 win against Portland State.

Suss watched the game twice and walked away mostly unimpressed. He breaks down why the Cougars will be in trouble against LSU’s elite athletes.
