– the difference between head coaches Mark Richt, Eric Mangini and Pat Shurmur

– can he name all 7 Browns starting QBs he played with?
– during his Georgia career, why was his season high in receptions always against Georgia Tech?
– what is the rivalry like between Georgia and GaTech, compared to SEC rivalries?
– how did he get recruited to Georgia?
– what are his thoughts on 2018 SEC football season, specifically Georgia?
– picking over/under win totals for SEC teams
– thoughts on the Browns QB battle between Tyrod Taylor and Baker Mayfield
– what can we expect from the Cleveland Browns in 2018?

After that, Gary and Chris welcome in John LaCombe from Northwestern & Big 10 podcast West Lot Pirates to discuss the Urban Meyer situation that led to him being on paid administrative leave at Ohio St.

– What should Urban Meyer have done to avoid being placed on administrative leave?
– What should Ohio St have done in creating an investigative committee?
– What should Ohio St do with Meyer?
– If he knew, why did Meyer keep Zack Smith on staff?
…and more!

The guys then discuss Conor McGregor’s return against Khabib in October, and Nate Diaz’s reaction to the announcement at the UFC 25th anniversary press conference.

Finally, Gary and Chris wrap up the show with The Blurbs!

– NFL Football is back. Can RG3 win the backup role for the Ravens over Lamar Jackson?

Gary Segars

Gary began his first website in 1998 as a sophomore in high school, writing reviews of cds and live shows in the Memphis area. He became editor of his college newspaper, then moved towards a career in music.He started the infamous MemphisTider.com blog during the 2006 football season, and was lucky enough to get into blogging just before the coaching search that landed Nick Saban at Alabama. The month and a half long coaching search netted his site, which was known for tracking airplanes, over 1 million hits in less than 90 days. The website introduced Gary to tons of new friends, including Nico and Todd, who had just started the site RollBamaRoll.com.After diving into more than just Alabama news, Gary started up his first installment of WinningCuresEverything.com in 2012. After keeping the site quiet for a while, it was started back up in April 2016. Gary then joined forces with high school friend Chris Giannini and began a podcast during the 2016 football season that runs at least 2 times a week, focusing on college football, NFL football, and sports wagering, and diving into other sports and pop-culture topics.E-mail: gary@winningcureseverything.com Twitter: @GaryWCE
