Ryan Tootell and Colter Nuanez find out how they did in the final week of the FCS regular season, and they go around the country to look at the first round of the FCS playoffs. They talk to as many beat writers as they could covering the teams playing this weekend including Mike Gegenheimer, Jim Nelson, Randy Reinhardt, and a few new voices!
