In this week’s episode of Slate’s sports podcast Hang Up and Listen, Stefan Fatsis and Josh Levin are joined by Spencer Hall of SB Nation to talk about the Alabama football team’s loss to Auburn and Tennessee’s move to hire Greg Schiano as its next football coach, and then to unhire him after a fan revolt. Vann Newkirk of the Atlantic also joins the show to talk about the Alabama basketball team, which almost beat Minnesota despite playing much of the second half with just three players. Finally, Bruce Arthur of the Toronto Star comes on for a conversation about the Toronto Argonauts’ victory in Canadian football’s Grey Cup.

Josh’s Lirim Hajrullahu: Remembering Bernie Custis, the first black quarterback (or one of the first quarterbacks) in pro football history.

On this week’s Slate Plus bonus segment, Stefan and Josh discuss helmet-to-helmet hits, and whether rule changes in college and pro football have done anything to make the game safer. Visit Slate.com/hangupplus and try it free for two weeks.
