    Pate State Material
    Where else can you get a healthy dose of real college football content fans want from a true fan, a dose of storm chasing stories, the knowledge that Forrest Gump contained ping pong, Fleetwood Mac and football; info about the former girlfriend of the storm chaser who is now the Atlanta Hawks billionaire owners wife… enjoy it all so much like you just had a conversation with your best friend? It’s a rhetorical question - you can’t touch this (immunity)!

    Awesome College Football Show!
    Josh is great. He still really tries to focus on college football as a sport, and really maintains a focus on sport as a whole, as opposed to just micro-focusing on the game’s current elites. College football has always been a community-driven sport, where 60,000 people will sell out a stadium to watch two 4-3 teams play head to head on a random Saturday. Josh feels like one of the last of a dying breed, who still sees the sport for what it is, as opposed to just another season of Alabama vs. Georgia for another national title. Keep it up Josh!

    Josh Is the smartest most genuine voice in college football. His passion and dedication for the sport never fail to come out in every pod. A very tough task as a one man show, but there is no moments of dullness. Thanks mate

    C+ grade for Cristobal is a joke
    I’ll give you five stars because I like the show. But have to chime in here. You just gave him an above-average rating for getting blown out by Middle Tennessee State and Duke in year 1. Smh.

    Slow down
    Josh has a lot of good info and things to say, but he’s gotta slow down. Add some quick pauses or transitions or something. It’s hard to keep up sometimes.

    Pate state for life!
    Very objective while keeping it fun!
  • Dr.. Shrimp Puerto Rico
    This guy just said CFB Playoff was ludicrous. I instantly turned I’m the podcast off. How can a fan of college football say that.

    The Late Kick with Josh Pate
  • Zack maize and blue
    Good content but it’s mainly an SEC podcast.
    Josh is great and do enjoy the show. Only reason it’s not 5 stars is because 75% of the show just focuses on the SEC. He then gets upset when he’s called out about that and then proceeds to spend 10 min on Arkansas or another mid SEC team. Stopped listening to every episode since it turned into that. Now more just pick and choose the ones that aren’t all SEC for an hour. I get it though he’s a southern guy and grew up in SEC country but would rather be more honest about what this pod is about because it for sure is not a balanced podcast.

    SEO-Driven. Shallow
    It’s fine, Josh is entertaining, but he only talks topics that will be good for the SEO. Zero coverage of mid-low tier teams that aren’t in the SEC. A lot of “flavor of the week”-type stuff.
  • HSqueezy77
    Great show for CFB enthusiasts
    I consume an embarrassing amount of college football podcasts and this may be my favorite one right now. Very good insights and he keeps it from stalling out, which is hard for a one man show. I usually find at least a few good angles for betting each week too. Appreciate the good work, my man. Keep it coming!

    Great listen
    First off, I’ve listened to Josh and producer Collin since day one on the podcast, and the quality of the content, the way it has been presented and the unbiased opinions of each program has never changed!!! I’m happy for you guys and the success that has came y’all’s way! Keep up the great work and God bless!

    CFP Lover’s Dream
    This show is fast-paced and gets through every important matchup, reviewing the previous week and previewing the next week. Features an oddsmaker’s perspective for those who enjoy point spreads and betting odds, but that isn’t necessary to enjoy the fantastic game breakdowns.

  • Joe diggs
    Best original college football content
    If you are a college football fan, Josh is a must listen. His original perspective on various college football stories is simply the best. Thank you Director Collin and Josh for such a remarkable pod.

    Pate is the best CFB media personality out there
    Pate is the best CFB media personality out there. No contest. He’s objective and honest, yet passionate and engaging. Keep up the great work.
  • ChrisKy91
    SEC heavy
    I really enjoy Josh’s passion for the sport and ability to do a one man show and hold interest. My main complaint is that there’s too much focus on the SEC. Not to say the SEC isn’t the best conference and the foundation of the sport but when your recap show is hyper focused on mediocre games featuring SEC teams, it’s not what I’m interested. Good games with good teams from the SEC, sure of course but a game featuring a bad Auburn team getting dragged, I tune out. I guess I can’t blame Josh, SEC fans are the most vocal and bring the most viewership/listens that can insulate from the rest of the country. Josh knows where his bread is buttered. Also seems most of his connection and sourcing around the sport is via SEC personnel. Last thing, attitude era wwf was overrated, please stop making references to them as a notion you’re a wrestling fan when you don’t both to watch the current product that is vast and good.

    Pate is your favorite podcaster’s favorite podcaster! Seriously though, he is very measured and not a talking head going for clicks. Much respect.

    Long time listener, first time caller. Probably the only person in Football Sports Media that I listen to regularly. Josh is the best in the game… and it’s not particularly close. Just subscribe and listen daily… don’t be an idiot.

    Take a shot every time Josh asks for 5 star reviews, subscribers, likes, etc. you will end up in the hospital. Can we just limit that to once per show please? This is otherwise an awesome product.

    The College Football Podcast I've Been Wanting for Years
    Josh and his team are great on each episode. They talk about a lot of the things going on in the sport (both on and off the field), but they also don't hesitate to let the fans steer the wheel about what the topics are from episode to episode. They also cover a wide variety of teams and players which keeps the show interesting and engaging.
  • dnaaggie
    Texas A&M will not even be a borderline top 10 class
    We will end up with a smallish class (they say), 20-21 recruits, and will end up around 300 pts and be in the top 5 (think Ohio St.’s class last year). We’ll have one of the highest avg. recruit rankings… top 3 probably. Ans then get ready for our 2023 & 2024 back to back National Championship years.
  • dawgmatic
    Too much talk about the Josh Pate brand. I listen to hear about college football, not to hear about how great the show is.
