Let me just make this recommendation for you right now. On Tuesday night at 9 p.m. Eastern, set your DVR, TiVo or preset the VCR to record ESPN’s next installment in its 30 for 30 documentary series entitled “Rand University,” which profiles the tumultuous rise of Randy Moss from his days in Rand, West Virginia to his collegiate stops at Notre Dame, Florida State and Marshall. From everything we’ve heard, it’s can’t-miss television.
On The Versus Podcast, we’re fortunate enough to have Bomani Jones of ESPN’s Highly Questionable and executive producer of the documentary join Bonta and Ed to discuss “Rand University” in full detail. Jones talks about Moss growing up in rural West Virginia and the possibility of what Notre Dame’s and Florida State’s legacy could’ve been if Moss stayed enrolled in South Bend or Tallahassee. Also in the discussion we talk about generally growing up in the country and the current state of relations between the Oklahoma Sooners and the Texas Longhorns.

Following the interview, a TSFJ family member Paul Navarro aka FightLikeSugar joins us in the studio to talk about the current state of boxing as we wrap up the 2014 calendar with a full slate of intriguing matches. Is Beyonce the reason why boxing is in the volatile state it’s currently in? Is Gennady Golovkin the most feared man in boxing? What’s truly next for Floyd Mayweather? Will Paul offer the apology to Ed that he rightly deserves after Miguel Cotto took Sergio Martinez to the woodshed? Listen in and find out.
