Preferred Walk-Ons Podcast: I Want To Believe introduced a new podcast partnership to be featured here on the site and through our social media channels. It’s time for Episode 6.

Hosted by two people named Michael – ACC fans by birth, degenerate gamblers for mirth – The Preferred Walk-Ons Podcast is a college sports podcast through the lens of the ACC. Michael McGraw is a University of Virginia graduate and fan, while Michael Shutt is a life-long NC State fan. Both grew up watching the ACC and have insights on the history and present of the conference … plus plenty of healthy ABC – (Anybody But Carolina) bias.

This episode focuses on Georgia’s dominant conclusion to college football season plus more parity than ever in college basketball:

  • The lopsided national championship victory for Georgia and what it means for the future of college football (0:00-30:56)
  • Surprises in the race for the ACC basketball championship (30:56-55:24)
  • Basketball teams across the country that have struggled in conference play (55:24-1:13:54)
