Emergency Pod: Kalen DeBoer to Alabama

It’s official: Washington football coach Kalen DeBoer will replace Nick Saban at Alabama, leading the Huskies days after leading them to the CFP championship game in just his second year on Montlake. We discuss why DeBoer’s departure doesn’t spell doom for UW football, his legacy with the Huskies and who might replace him.

Carroll Out as Seahawks Head Coach

In a shocking turn, the Seahawks announced Wednesday that Pete Carroll will no longer be their head coach as he moves into an advisor role. Ben Baldwin joins us to discuss our thoughts on the decision and who we’d be interested in replacing Carroll before we discuss Pete’s legacy as perhaps the best pro coach in Seattle sports history. (Lou Piniella was an egregious omission from that discussion. Our bad.)

Peltoncast No. 398

With the Seahawks missing the playoffs and the Huskies’ season ending in the CFP championship game, we’re into the Peltoncast offseason, but not before some hot takes on Pete Carroll’s postseason media availability. Plus the M’s win fans back with a pair of trades and UW men’s basketball gets a first Pac-12 win.

Huskies Lose CFP Championship

UW football’s magical, undefeated 2023 season came to an end in Monday’s College Football Playoff championship game as they lost 34-13 to the Michigan Wolverines in a game that wasn’t as lopsided as the final score indicated. We discuss what went wrong in the game as well as what we’ll take from the Huskies’ run that galvanized the city of Seattle.

Peltoncast No. 397: CFP Championship Preview

We’ve got a full breakdown — and contrasting perspectives — on how Washington matches up with Michigan in Monday’s College Football Playoff championship. Before that, we discuss a frustrating last UW men’s basketball trip to the Mountain schools and ride the Pete Carroll coaster down to the bottom.
