In the latest Cover 2 podcast, Braden Gall and Mitch Light discuss Mitch’s list of Coaches on the Rise that will appear in the magazine and Steven Lassan’s list of top 50 players in the nation that can be found on the website.

Items discussed:

• Braden has an SEC West defensive coordinator as his top rising coach — and it’s not LSU’s Dave Aranda

• The best player in the country does not play for a Power 5 team

• Why both Mitch and Braden would take Michigan State QB Brian Lewerke over any other player in the Big Ten

• Does the fact that Mitch’s 8th grade basketball team got slapped with FOUR technical fouls in a game last week reflect poorly on him as a coach or is it more of a statement on the youth of America?
