Fair and insightful takes on today’s college game. Enough point/counterpoint to make it interesting, but not contentious. Thanks for an entertaining season.

Stewart Mandel is a semi-functional moron with God-awful college football opinions.

Stu and Bruce have wonderful voices and I’m sure their kids love to have them read them stories. Speaking of which, once the season is over, I’m sure their kids will enjoy seeing them more. Please go easy on the 2010 Auburn Team. That was a senior heavy team and a loaded coaching staff (Gus...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to the pod since 2014/2015. It’s not as good as it used to be, but I continue to listen for Bruce’s insights and the great interviews with people from the CFB realm. Bruce is a true insider and brings great input on game analysis, coaching hires, and big picture issues. I...Read full review »
Lousaka Polite (best name) via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/30/20
I love to hear Bruce talk about college football! He is knowledgeable, understands the game and provides spot on analysis and great insight. Stu does not seem to understand the game at all and speaks more like a fan rather than informed podcast host who provides knowledge and insight about the...Read full review »

I listened to this podcast for years always enjoying Bruce’s measured and smart takes. Stew occasionally had good insights despite an eternally sour disposition. I never got why these two were paired because they come off as frenemies at best. But I can’t listen anymore given Stew’s wild takes...Read full review »
TigerSomnolence via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/21/20
but while Stewart’s input on has become increasingly uninspired in recent years, this year it became insufferable. The surface deep analysis became increasingly sprinkled with long winded personal opinion and thinly veiled political diatribe. Undoubtedly Stewart’s job at the Athletic encompasses...Read full review »

I enjoy Bruce’s opinion but stews is just blah and worthless. He has a winey voice and adds no content that makes me want to listen. If I run out of CFB podcast I’ll listen but typically I just delete anymore. Get Bruce paired up with like Brady Quinn or Lienart and I think this would be a great...Read full review »

Essential listening for any and every college football fan. The only podcast I listen to every week without fail.

They aren’t preventing anyone from making the playoff, so why do you care to beat the dead horse regarding their ranking? Clemson has one good win and UGA has none. They also haven’t beaten anyone in the top 10, like UGA. OU has two good wins and a bad loss. UGA has none. Coastal would be...Read full review »
Cobes_10 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/09/20
Love Bruce. He’s smart and knowledgeable. Stew is nothing more than a clickbait seeking anti-PAC 12 activist and I hope he leaves this podcast eventually, because as long as he’s as insufferable as he is on this podcast, I’m done listening to it.

Like the pod and ran into him grabbing a coffee. Was going to say hi but overheard him drop the N word. What a garbage human and hope he loses his job.
Big Sticky via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/17/20
Giving it 5 stars out of respect for Bruce, but the show has changed recently. I’ve listened to Stew complain about things for years, but accepted that’s part of his personality. Recently the show is hard to listen to due to Stew’s constant complaining about... everything. He talks about COVID...Read full review »
Nick in Raleigh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/13/20
I like Stew and Bruce and have listened to their pod for a long time. However, the production problems are making it harder to keep that up. The audio fluctuates from mediocre to just plain bad, the ad breaks are poorly placed and overly long, and the content is becoming lacking as well. If...Read full review »
GoldenFlash10 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/01/20
Well, that’s it, I’m unsubscribing from this podcast and The Athletic. Stewart discusses the Wisconsin cancellation of the Nebraska game, which is 100% the fault of Wisconsin and The Big 10 conference and the only thing he says about Nebraska is making fun of random Twitter comments from people...Read full review »
Huskerb9 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/29/20
Love the podcast but Stewart’s joke about the SEC and coronavirus was way out of line. It’s a lethal virus and at the end of the day, these are college kids who are sick. I get the whole build up around college football might make them seem older than they are, but these are 18-23 year old kids....Read full review »
73 Mustang via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/15/20
So many times Bruce has very little functional knowledge of southern football. This week he is clueless about UGA’s defense not being on the field for TN’s first TD, and later having TN start on the 30, much less the fact that they scored a TD and gave the Offense the ball on a short field...Read full review »
SEC will play via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/13/20
I love these guys. I’ve been listening since their early fox days, but lately it’s gone down hill. WAY too many ad reads for the time of the podcast, and they aren’t strategically placed. In the middle of a topic, AD, or before one replies to a question, AD. I get you need ads. But just make them...Read full review »

Honestly listening at anything less than 2x speed makes it an impossible listen. Informative but would be better if trimmed down to 20-25 mins and the pace is picked up
NoleFan1123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/15/20
One of best CFB podcasts. Have listened to this for years and am always excited when I see it download.
Eagles Fan 124 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/04/20
Watsup bud, I enjoy the show and listen every week.... With the breaking news coming out about the 2 teams added to each SEC opponents schedule.... What do you think the 2020 season will be like now that A&M has Florida, Tennessee, Bama and LSU? Also what do you the 2020 season will be...Read full review »
Jay Pops 12 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/20
This podcast is a gift for all CFB fans. Both Stu and Bruce bring deep experience, insight, and perspective to those of us who already know a lot about CFB and follow it closely but may not be able to connect some of the dots about events both on and off the field. While many CFB podcasts and...Read full review »

Been listening to these guys since day one but the huge uptick in ads is a bummer. I get that they have to make money but an ad break every 10-15 mins is a bit much.
manvelag via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/20
Stuart & Bruce are two of the best insiders of college football. The Audible is the best college football podcast
Amber DFW_Girl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/20
If you need an instant dose of depression, tune into Stu. He sounds like someone just shot his puppy.
det282 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/10/20
I come for sports not politics. I don’t care if it relates or not. Love the pod but if it continues I’ll move on.
CFB fan76 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/23/20
For those college football junkies, the Audible is the perfect summary current events CF.

Highlight of my week!

Tim Brando took no prisoners in his interview with frank opinions on College Football and its’ future. Spirited debate with Stu and Bruce. Great entertainment in a corona sea of boredom
Gobbly Dragon via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/20
Been a long time subscriber but the last 2 episodes with Kaylee and George have been their best work yet. Thank you gents! Matt T in Portland

There guys have great insight on college football. I enjoy listening to your takes on what going on in the football world. Thanks guys!

This is the most boring college football podcast out there GUARANTEED
FanofPFt commentr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/20
I love college football, and I subscribe to a few podcasts such as The Audible to get insights each week. (ESPN, Yahoo, AP) Stew and Bruce are the best. Hands down, the best. They aren’t trying to be comedians and laugh over each other (take note Yahoo!), they are just sharing the benefit of...Read full review »

Bruce is excellent and knows his stuff. Stew is insufferable most of the time.

Always interesting
Joe G 🧐 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/26/19
How does Mandel keep his job? A simple tug becomes a diatribe on things not to do. This from a person depending on college football for a living but if he had a son would never let him play! Mandel crowd are more into the touchy feely side of sports other than the toughness required which is...Read full review »

Trent gave a fantastic interview about the intangibles that make these college QBs so successful. Thank you for setting up this interview. swac in California
swac1102312 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/20/19
If you love CFB you’ve really got to listen to podcasts (and read The Athletic) to get well rounded coverage since espn only covers 4-5 teams. And the audible is the best podcast out there covering CFB. Stew & Bruce do a fantastic job.
Jechambers via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/19
Love the way you guys jab each other. Great dynamic and solid insight from true professionals. Love the sound improvement!
Walt walters via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/19
Stew and Bruce bring great insight into the college football world. Would highly recommend for any college football fan
blaket789 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/19
Great Insight and now with new and improved sound quality!
bd1291 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/19
Stew and Bruce are great. Super informative!
mabbott83 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/19
Stew and Bruce are great. They have genuine conversation, always treat people with respect, and always have solid self awareness that they are reporting on the stories rather than constructing narratives... In opposition to the way so many reporters do (looking at you, finebaum).
Old Greg Vt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/19
It’s hard to know how these two made it to the figurative top of CFP media. Their opinions are little more than groupthink. Their game analysis is nothing a high schooler couldn’t do. They quote advanced stats and traditional stats with little understanding of what it takes to win a football...Read full review »

I really like this podcast than you guys! Kyler Murray was a 5 Star QB transferred btw.
Rake the Jake via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/16/19
You guys really, really need to invest in some better audio equipment. I love listening to both of you guys and you both know more about CFB on a national basis than anybody else and do a good job of sharing that wisdom here, but the audio quality on this podcast is really aggravating.
sfoberla via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/19
Too much promoting. It’s a little annoying. Especially, on the Twitter feeds. Forced me to unfollow the both of you.
NCND82 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/19
I like the way the guys challenge each other’s position when warranted. Probably one of the two best CFB pods out there.
