In the second part of their epic conversation with Andy Staples from SI.com, Ty and Dan stray away from college football and pick Andy’s brain on fashion tips for the husky, successful relationships, the best states for BBQ and much more.
(Again, we stress: this isn’t a football show. Hey, it’s the offseason! If you’d like to hear the first part of Ty and Dan’s chat with Andy, you can find it here.)
Ty and Dan talk with Andy Staples from SI.com about college football’s power balance, the future arc of the new playoff, the sustainability of college football as a business, the teams with the fewest questions and more.

With Ty away attending to secret business, Dan records a special roundtable episode with SBNation’s Ryan Nanni and talks schedule-adjusted top 25 predictions, Michigan QBs, the Pac-12’s second tier, and then an extended life, clothes, and relationship talk, featuring the return of Dr. Jane.
Ty talks with David Jones from The Patriot News about Bill O’Brien’s departure from Penn State, the process of hiring of James Franklin, the current state of the football program, and some e-mail questions.

Ty and Dan are joined by SBNation’s Steven Godfrey, the author of “Meet the Bag Man: How to Buy College Football Players, In the Words of a Man Who Delivers the Money“.
