The Hurricanes do remain in the poll, however, holding on at No. 24.Georgia vaults to No. 2, picking up the remaining first-place nod, after shutting down then-No. 2 Clemson in the weekend's marquee contest. The Tigers slip to No. 6. Ohio State moves up to No. 3 after staving off Minnesota in its Big Ten road opener. Oklahoma slips to No. 4 after struggling to put away Tulane.

After back-to-back weeks of getting a behind-the-scenes look at the development of Ohio State five-star quarterbacks C.J. Stroud and Quinn Ewers, Lettermen Row's Tim May returns with another deep dive this week. On this week's edition of the Tim May Podcast, Tim shifts his focus to women making the climb up the athletic ranks, including Diana Sabau, the Big Ten Conference's deputy commissioner and chiefs sports officer. Prior to her role in the Big Ten conference, Sabau was a staff member in the Ohio State athletic department for 27 years. That included serving as deputy athletic director from 2017-2021 as the sports department's second-highest ranked administrator behind Gene Smith. She then left her role at Ohio State to oversee all 28 of the Big Ten's sponsored sports as the league's first-ever chief sports officer. Sabau joins Tim on the podcast to discuss her extensive role that she began in March 2021. She discusses how she hopes to help the Big Ten grow, her vision for the league's sports over the next several years and how her time at Ohio State helped prepare her. Sabau is one of the most successful administrators in the history of Ohio State athletics. She helped oversee the Buckeyes growth in partnerships with companies such as Nike, Gatorade, CBS and the Big Ten Network. Throughout those many years, Sabau learned several important lessons along the way, and she has become an inspiration to many women who are hoping to break through in the sports administration business and excel in their career. What advice does Sabau have for those hoping to follow a similar career path as her? What goals does she have for the Big Ten Conference in the 2020s? Find out on this edition of the Tim May Podcast.

It's hard to believe when we started our show as a podcast in February of 2017 that we would ever reach 100 episodes. In fact, as of 2020, we only had 35. Add 65 more shows between March of 2020 and today and here we are with milestone episode 100! We decided the only appropriate way to celebrate 100 episodes is to talk about our previous 99 episodes, take a shot of Malört and visit with our first partners that helped us build this site into something special. First, we sit down with our old friend Ralph Schudel (ralphschudel.com) and talk about how we met back after the #SaveTheCrew movement started. It's really incredible how in just four years the Columbus Crew went from being moved to Austin to an expansion franchise was added to Austin, new ownership comes in, and Lower.com Field just recently opened in downtown Columbus, Ohio. In our next segment, we talk about our earliest shows, shifting our show concept over to being more interview-based, and our first guests who may not be household names, but have amazing stories to share. We actually had our first famous guests with Michelle McMahon from Big Ten Network and Super Bowl Champion Bernard Pollard stopping by and visiting the show. The next throw to segment is with our friend Dave Knittel. Dave runs the popular "The Soccer Tavern" channel on YouTube discussing the history and teams of soccer. Dave also co-hosted the "Bros Talking Soccer" podcast with his brothers and famously hosted a daily episode after each day of action in the 2018 Men's and 2019 Women's World Cups. Next up, we talk about how 2020 and the pandemic changed the trajectory of this show, where we talked with legendary Cubs radio broadcaster Pat Hughes, Andrew Dymburt of ABC News Now, and how watching a rerun of ABC's Wipeout at 11pm on a Saturday night inspired D.J. to take a chance and reach out to John Anderson at ESPN and resulted in an incredibly fun interview. In our final throw to segment, we interview our two active longest partners Kevin Pettit (Loud Americans Discussing Soccer Podcast) and Adam Corsair (South of the 6ix, Jaybird Watching Podcast) about D.J. randomly reaching out to them when the site first started about this crazy idea. Both guests were fairly new at their shows and took a chance to partner with us. If it wasn't for them, this concept would have failed after six months. We can't say thank you enough to the two of them for helping get us on our feet. Finally, we close out the show talking about our new Book Club segment and perhaps we've accidentally created a new segment. The discussion with Kevin and Adam about dealing with criticism, bad reviews, and nasty emails which make you want to quit were too good to cut, so we're going to be releasing all of that in next week's episode! Thank you again to everyone who has made StadiumScene.TV a success so far. We cannot thank you enough. Here's to the next 100 episodes not taking four years!
