Podcast: NFL Draft thoughts, Chuckie Keeton and Las Vegas odds with Adam Kramer
There are few players in college football that are exciting to watch play as Utah State quarterback Chuckie Keeton. When he went down with an ACL injury last season it was pretty much a crime to the college football fans. When Keeton went down for the year, many wrote Utah State off in the Mountain West Conference, but the Aggies persevered through the adversity and captured the Mountain Division and gave Fresno State a run in the Mountain West Conference Championship Game. Now Utah State prepares for the 2014 season knowing their key offensive talent, Keeton, will be back and ready to go when the season kicks off in Knoxville, Tennessee against the Tennessee Volunteers. The match-up is already one of the most anticipated week-one match-ups, and Keeton's return to the football field is one of the big reasons why. Kevin McGuire (@KevinOnCFB) is joined by Bleacher Report lead national writer Adam Kramer (@KegsnEggs) to talk about Keeton and some other key players college football fans should know a lot more about this coming fall. In addition to Keeton, UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley and Marshall quarterback Rakeem Cato are examined. Speaking of UCLA, are they a worthwhile bet in Las Vegas to win the national championship? The latest Las Vegas national championship odds are broken down by Kramer, who suggests the era of the College Football Playoff could change the whole way we look at title odds as the season progresses. Here is a quick rundown of some of the topics discussed in this episode of the podcast... 01:20 - How the NFL Draft schedule helps fill the void before college football season and other NFL Draft thoughts from a college football perspective 09:46 - Profiling Keeton, Hundley and Cato 16:08 - Las Vegas has set national championship odds, which are the safest bets? 26:09 - Closing You can listen to the full podcast below, and leave your comments on this episode in the comment section.

Podcast: Winston has crabs, SEC scheduling, playoff rankings and more
Note to iTunes subscribers: We will be updating our iTunes feed as soon as possible, so you may not see this episode appear in your iTunes subscriptions. Do not panic. We are aware of the situation and hope to have it resolved quickly. The Crystal Ball Run podcast is back and has plenty of ground to cover. Consider this a soft reset for the podcast. With the new publishing platform and layout on the site, it was time to give the podcast a new beginning of sorts. Starting now we will be hosting the podcast right here at Crystal Ball Run, which means no more having to go through a third party to have our podcasts hosted. You may not notice much of a difference, but this means a little bit less of a headache behind the scenes when it comes to the podcast (hopefully). Because we are now hosting the podcast on our own site, some tinkering with the iTunes subscription will need to be done to make sure iTunes subscribers continue getting the podcast delivered properly. We ask that subscribers please excuse any little hiccups for now and rest easy knowing we will get this fixed as soon as we possibly can. Getting our first podcast posted on our own site is a big step in that direction. Now, about this latest episode of the podcast.. Kevin McGuire (@KevinOnCFB) and Andy Coppens (@AndyOnCFB) cover a handful of the big topics around the college football world over the past month. From unions to playoffs and from SEC scheduling to crab legs, we think everything is taken care of here for now. Here is a quick rundown, in case you would like to skip ahead to a certain part of the conversation... 01:17 - Jameis Winston and Crabgate, just how big of a deal is this story anyway? 07:56 - A look at the new SEC scheduling policy 19:02 - Pros and cons of CFB Playoff selection committee's ranking system 33:28 - Updating the college players union movement and what could be next around the country 42:36 - James Franklin's role in Vanderbilt rape case highlighted, should Penn State be concerned? 51:55 - Closing You can listen to the full episode below.
