On the debut episode, Sam Herder discusses how fair it is for FCS narratives to shift or form based off of the weird spring season. He talks about the FCS playing two seasons in one calendar year, upcoming Week 0 games, and an exciting Week 1 slate.
Sam rips the #FearTheFCS hashtag, the NCAA FCS Twitter account, and questions if Jacksonville State can make the playoffs. But he ends on a positive note and says why there won’t be a lot of game cancellations this fall.
Sam’s coverage of the FCS began in 2012 as the sports editor and eventual editor-in-chief of NDSU’s The Spectrum. After graduating in 2015, he spent three years in the newspaper and magazine industry while starting his work for HERO Sports in the fall of 2016 as a freelancer. In May 2018, he joined the website full time as the Senior FCS Analyst.
