Podcasts: Box to Box Ep. 2 – Deadline Day | 10/11/20

This isn’t the football you think it is.

Welcome to Box to Box, WTBU Sports’ podcast devoted to discussing the ebbs, flows, and dives (25 words managed until our first joke about diving – not too shabby) in European soccer. On a weekly basis, WTBU’s Jacob Colling (@jcolling3), Alex Puri (@aarjun24), and Akshai Wadhwani (@Chewbacca4POTUS)–alongside close colleague and Ohio Statesman Jeff Asa-Hauser (@jeffasahauser)–will be bringing you analysis, predictions, and general attempts at punditry on the UEFA Champions League, Barclays Premier League, Emirates FA Cup, and other leagues that may or may not have sponsors in their names. We’ll discuss, debate, and frequently call each other “mate.” Sound good to you? Check us out and give us a rate!

In this week’s episode, we discussed the coming and passing of Deadline Day, as well as this summer’s transfer window overall. Later, we addressed the resurfacing of the rape allegations against Cristiano Ronaldo, the continuing feud between Neymar and Alvaro Gonzalez, and Hope Solo’s lawsuit against U.S. Soccer. And we round things out by laying out our opinions — in game show format — on several proposed changes to the rules and structure of the beautiful game. Be sure to like, share, and follow us on social media, and stay tuned for future episodes!
