Nach and BMac deep-dive into this topic because -- we can do whatever the hell we want to do with this Podcast, and we dug in deep. Also, which undefeated FCS power loses first -- and why?

In our fifth edition of BMac and The Nach's FCS Podcast, Anthony Nachreiner and Brian McLaughlin pose the question: What's with ESPN's recent infatuation with the Big Sky Conference -- including this week's nationally televised game on Friday night? Could we be on to something with last week's "bold picks" when we said ESPN Gameday is heading to Big Sky country later in 2021? How interesting could the potential OVC-Southland Challenge be in the future, and why can't more conferences consider this? WHY OH WHY does BMac whine and cry so much during one particular segment of the podcast? Who will win this week's Top 10 FCS games? We pick 'em. And we do our quick conference-by-conference quick too! All this week. Enjoy this week's Pod!

In our fourth edition of BMac and The Nach's FCS Podcast, Anthony Nachreiner and Brian McLaughlin explain why the Big Sky and the FCS are destined to get FCS Gameday in several weeks. Where will it be, why, and what's the reasoning? And what could derail it from happening? We explain the history of the decision-making, what the precedent has been, etc. We also dove into the mess that is the FCS Playoff seeding picture at the moment. Who is No. 1? Hell, who is No. 5? We know who the top seven most deserving teams are -- we just have no clue how to put them in order. We have all of that and much more, including the Top 10 game picks and a really embarrassing admission by BMac (please skip this part if you have a heart). Enjoy this week's Pod!
In our third edition of BMac and The Nach's FCS Podcast, Anthony Nachreiner and Brian McLaughlin explain what in the hell the "AQ7" is and what it means for the 2021 FCS Playoff Picture (answer: lots). How good are Sam Houston, NDSU, JMU, Montana ... and the rest of this incredible gaggle of talented, undefeated teams standing at the top of the FCS? And how great is it that ESPN finally recognized how good an individual matchup can be in the FCS regular season -- putting Montana at Eastern Washington on ESPN2 when lots of eyeballs nationally will be looking for an entertaining late game on Saturday night? Plus, we do our weekly "Bold Picks", break down the Top 10 games with picks, and breakdown every conference in the country as it opens league play. That and much more, with BMac and The Nach's FCS Podcast.
