On the first full episode of the Black & Gold Banneret Podcast, Jeff Sharon and Eric Lopez ring in the new UCF sports season with a rundown of how you can follow the show and what they’ll be yammering about on a weekly basis on the show. They discuss the new coaching hires all over UCF Athletics, including Scott Frost and his impact on the Football program (10:00), as well as all of the other new coaches on campus, from Johnny Dawkins to John Roddick (22:30). Then they do a deep dive on the latest rumors about the Big 12 expansion saga (36:40), including the guys’ takes on how many teams will get in, which teams will get in, and whether UCF will be one of them.
Jeff Sharon is the Managing Editor, Publisher, and boss around here. He graduated from UCF in 2005 and worked in the Knights’ athletic department full-time from 2008-2010. He still works for UCF as a public address announcer at several sporting events and also thinks the Atlantic Sun Conference days were more fun than you realized. Follow him on Twitter at @Jeff_Sharon.
