Dan Wetzel and SI’s Pat Forde & Ross Dellenger go through the recently announced plans for the SEC’s 2024 schedule after the addition of the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners.

The SEC will still be using an 8 game schedule in 2024, but the committee was able to provide a very balanced result for every team. The show discusses which teams have the hardest schedules due to out-of-conference opponents along with top-ranked SEC matchups. Texas and Oklahoma both have interesting draws with the renewal of some very old rivalries to come.

Next, Dan sheds light on how former president Richard Nixon helped sports fans everywhere by implementing national broadcasts during sellout playoff games.

Mississippi State took social media by storm with an interesting take on their 2024 opponent announcement. The graphic posted by their social media team incorporated rival school mascots generated by an AI software, which created some disturbing anthropomorphic images.

Texas Tech has decided to induct the late Mike Leach into their hall of honor. Ross provides his thoughts on how that decision would have been received by Mike Leach.

Incoming Notre Dame athletic director Pete Bevacqua had a story about his playing days at Notre Dame, including a humbling interaction with Lou Holtz.

Ross was able to talk with Charlie Baker about whether or not he supports the direction that the IRS is headed in regards to non-profit NIL collectives.
