Bo Jackson, Folk Hero; Texas A&M’s quagmire

Author Jeff Pearlman joins AP’s Ralph Russo to talk about his new book “The Last Folk Hero: The Life and Myth of Bo Jackson.” Pearlman dug deep into what molded and motivated the former Heisman Trophy winner from Auburn who became an all-star in the NFL and Major League Baseball. Then Ari Wasserman from The Athletic joins the show to dissect the quagmire Texas A&M finds itself in and why maybe being forced to have patience with coach Jimbo Fisher could turn out to be the best thing for the program. Wasserman and Russo also dive into a disastrous first season for Mario Cristobal at Miami and what exactly schools are paying for when they hand out extra long-term megadeals to coaches. Plus, a Week 9 preview of most intriguing games.
