Previewing the SEC and Group of Five

Description:

The college football season has started. Group of Five games kicked off Labor Day weekend. The Big 12 and ACC get rolling this weekend. So I guess we better get done previewing this very odd season that followed a most-bizarre and chaotic offseason. We have already done preview of the ACC and Big 12. Heck we even did one of the Pac-12, before the conference postponed fall football. We never got to the Big Ten, before it punted on the fall. What's left to do is preview the Southeastern Conference and the Group of Five leagues that are giving it a go this September.

To take a deep dive into the SEC, Cole Cubelic of ESPN and the SEC Network joins AP's Ralph Russo. Then Chris Vannini of The Athletic joins the show to talk about the American Athletic Conference, Sun Belt and Conference USA.


From Memes to the field, Seahawks fans on Twitter have been saying Let Russ Cook for over a season and it seems like the team is listening. Mina Kimes examines the new approach to offense in Seattle, that has its roots on twitter.

Replay - The Co-Chairs of the Group of Friends of Solidarity for Global Health Security, namely Canada, Denmark, the Republic of Korea, the Republic of Sierra Leone, and the State of Qatar, will be hosting a high-level side event entitled, "Protraction of the COVID-19 Crisis: Mitigating the Impacts and Protecting Future Generations" on the margins of the high-level week of the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
While countries worldwide are currently experiencing the impacts of the coronavirus disease
(COVID-19) on different trajectories, public health experts agree that the fight against this
pandemic will not end soon. As such, it is deeply concerning that the protraction of this crisis will exacerbate impacts on the most vulnerable. The longer this health crisis persists, the greater its impact will be on future generations, especially those in the most disadvantaged or vulnerable situations.
The following questions will guide the discussions at the event:
What impact will the protraction of the COVID-19 crisis have on future generations?
How can we collectively mitigate the protraction of this crisis?
How can new technologies and the private sector contribute to preparations for a
second wave of COVID-19 or other infectious diseases?
What are the needs and aspirations of young people regarding the pandemic?
The Outside the Lines crew weighs in on a variety of topics involving Colby Covington, Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, Memphis Tigers football and Lionel Messi.
