On this edition of the Black & Gold Banneret Podcast, Jeff, Eric and Drew begin with the latest news from the Big 12 realignment fiasco, with the conference accusing ESPN and The American of interference in its business, and sending a cease-and-desist letter to the network. We discuss that, the reaction to it, how it affects UCF, and what happens next.

Then Bryson Turner drops by to update us on the latest news from Tokyo on the UCF Knights who are participating in the Olympics.

Finally, the guys discuss UCF adding Florida and Maryland officially to the schedule, but then get continuously interrupted by Bob Bowlsby continuing to spill his guts about ESPN and The American to CBS’ Dennis Dodd and Dodd tweeting about it.
