Jessica Smetana was out for the latest episode of Golic & Smetty presented by DraftKings Network, so Mike Golic Sr. was joined by Jason Fitz from Yahoo! Sports and Fox Sports Radio. It’s Golic’s birthday, and the episode begins with Fitz unveiling a birthday gift for the host.
As Golic and Fitz move into the topics for the day, they begin with the current state of the NFL heading into Week 15. It feels like some divisions are close to being decided while others are constantly changing. This leads the discussion to who their current MVP favorites are, and Golic makes a case for Tyreek Hill and Christian McCaffrey breaking the trend of it being a quarterback award.
Golic and Fitz move to college football and recap how the Heisman voting shaped out this year. This leads to talks about what the transfer portal has become. They admit that there is some good that has come out of the portal as it can give fan bases a chance at hope, but they caution about how it can lead to free agency in college. The episode wraps with a discussion over the CFP results and Golic gives Fitz a chance to weigh in on the controversial exclusion of Florida State.
