Two years ago, LSU football coach Ed Orgeron won a national championship and was on top of the college football world. But now, the native Louisianan is on his way out, with the school announcing on Sunday that he will not be back to coach the Tigers again next season (despite having several years left on his contract). Today, The Athletic's Brody Miller joins us to break down the complicated reasons behind Orgeron's departure, including poor performance on the field, questionable behavior with women, political and racial tension within the locker room, and a Title IX lawsuit alleging that he knew about, and failed to properly report, instances of sexual assault and harassment within the team.Read Brody Miller's full story about Ed Orgeron's downfall:https://theathletic.com/2891847/2021/10/17/he-lost-track-of-who-he-was-inside-ed-orgerons-fall-from-celebrated-son-of-louisiana-to-lsu-coaching-pariah/See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

A couple weeks ago, the Brooklyn Nets were downplaying concerns about Kyrie Irving's vaccination status and eligibility to play this season. Then, after he was unable to play with the team during much of preseason, those questions became more persistent. And on Wednesday, Irving published a video on Instagram Live where he essentially doubled down on his commitment to not get vaccinated -- and tried to explain his reasoning. Today, as the NBA season kicks off and the Nets begin their quest for a title, The Athletic's Alex Schiffer joins us to discuss the rather confusing video, what Kyrie claims to be standing up for, and how far he is willing to take his fight.Follow all of Alex Schiffer's Brooklyn Nets coverage:https://theathletic.com/author/alex-schiffer/See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

But as important as Evans has been on the field for the Bucs, he has become even more beloved off it -- both in Tampa and in his hometown of Galveston, Texas. Today, Greg Auman, who covers the Bucs for The Athletic, explains how Evans has overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to win the hearts of fans across the country.Read Greg Auman's full story about Mike Evans:https://theathletic.com/2807881/2021/09/15/a-beacon-of-hope-in-bucs-mike-evans-galveston-cherishes-its-favorite-son/See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

One of the NFL's most compelling off-season storylines was the growing quarterback competition up in New England. The New England Patriots drafted Mac Jones to be the quarterback of the future, but it quickly became apparent that Jones might usurp incumbent starter Cam Newton — and that's exactly what happened.
