How terrifying and/or awesome is it that a social media uprising changed a coaching search mid-stream? Is it good for college football? And a deep look at how the sausage is made when it comes to sports journalists and their relationships with "sources."
The Cover 2 also begins a spring series creatively called "The 5 Big Questions." Where we ask the five biggest questions about a conference this spring. Today, we begin with the Big 12.
And how did Mitch's official visits to the Northeast go?

In an NFL Draft edition of the podcast, the guys take a look at how the best prospects in the 2018 NFL Draft ranked as recruits coming out of high school. What does this tell us about recruiting rankings and why do some continue to ignore the obvious?
Which QB in the '18 class is the best and what does the Class of 2019 look like for the position? What are some of our favorite (and most bizarre) scouting report words and phrases?
And, apparently, both hosts divulge checkered college pasts as one ran from the police and the other was arrested on a felony charge.

What are the major differences between the college football and basketball selection committees and how do they impact the tournaments? Do we buy brand bias and big school love in hoops? (How dumb was that selection show?)
And because it's March Madness, we give you our Final Four and upset picks in the tourney. Everyone needs bracket help, right?

It's the middle of March and the we are having fun looking back at college quarterbacks turned NFL prospects. Who were the great college players who we thought would be great in the NFL but failed miserably? What about great college QBs like Lamar Jackson and the transition to other positions?
Also, what do we make of the NFL combine and what questions are asked of prospects?

The guys start by looking at the rising stars of the coaching ranks. Come October and programs are looking for the future stars of college football coaching, these will be the names to know.
What do we make of Texas A&M using Jalen Ramsey's pictures to sell Aggie football? Much to do about nothing or offensive recruiting practice?
We also look at the Top 50 Players of 2018. Who would be the first pick in a draft of each of the Power 5 leagues? Who is the best player in each league?
