Then, they're joined by Jamie and Jason of the To The Top Talk podcast to discuss Southern Miss getting the coaching carousel started after one game (!) in this weirdest of college football seasons.

Modern problems (the weirdness of the 2020 college football schedule wreaking havoc on podcast content) require modern solutions (talking about a bunch of random things at once). On this episode of the Roost Podcast, Matt and Carter talk about the opener between Central Arkansas and Austin Peay, which may have been ugly but brought the weirdness in the way that only college football can, plus the extreme oddities of those teams' schedules. Then, it's Rice's (surprisingly low!) C-USA title odds combined with some (entirely reasonable!) schedule projections.
