AA Podcast #70 – Joel Klatt, Fox Sports 1

This week we named our 13 Rising Stars for 2013 in sports media. One of those rising stars was Fox Sports 1 college football analyst and host Joel Klatt. The former Colorado QB has blossomed at Fox Sports 1 in an expanded role not just as a studio and game analyst, but as an anchor, even doing highlights on Fox NFL Sunday. Klatt joins us to talk about his young Fox career, this week's B1G title game, and much more including…

-The challenges and excitement of building FS1 from the ground up.
-Going head-to-head with College GameDay and what constitutes success for Fox College Saturday.
-Whether Fox College Saturday would consider going on the road.
-Last Saturday as one of the great days in college football history, especially the miraculous Iron Bowl finish.
-How Saturday's heroics gave way to debate and controversy. Klatt has particularly strong comments about the politicking, which he calls "reprehensible," and the perceived strength of the SEC.
-How a 4 team playoff won't solve the politicking problem.
-Focusing on the negatives of the top teams instead of celebrating their accomplishments. And why Florida State can compare to the legendary 1995 Nebraska Cornhuskers.
-Michigan State's chances of an upset in the Big Ten title game.
-Can Braxton Miller make enough plays in the passing game for OSU to win their first true test of the season.
-Who's going to play for the national title.
