Tom is a former writer and web producer for several websites, including the Tribune Company. He lives in Hartford, CT, which some refer to as “UConn Country.” (Side note: No one calls it that.) Dan is a restaurant manager living in Phoenix, AZ, in the heart of Arizona State Sun Devils territory. They grew up in Syracuse, NY, and became friends in second grade when they both wore a Penn State jersey to class on the same day. They had a shared passion for talking sports and making inappropriate jokes, which made their teachers hate them, got them kicked out of the enrichment program, and paid no dividends whatsoever until 2012, when they started this college football podcast.

The show covers the entire FBS division of college football.
