Week two of the Dan Wetzel College Football Podcast brings guest Mike Valenti, cohost of Valenti and Foster on 97.1 the Ticket in Detroit and a longtime Michigan State fan.

[Also: Listen to all of Dan Wetzel's podcasts here]

Topics include:

• How college football views various programs based on historical success – or the promise of the future – but not necessarily present reality.

• The rise of Michigan State and the stakes at hand in the game at Oregon this week.

• Bobby Petrino, why Louisville fans have nothing to apologize about and why should anyone outside his family care if he’s a “changed man.”

• How desperate is Michigan and Brady Hoke for a signature road win at Notre Dame this week?

• Would Brian Kelly ever leave Notre Dame, for the NFL or another college job, because of the continuing academic suspensions that don’t seem to happen anywhere else?

• Should Kevin Sumlin be considered a potential NFL coaching star for his ability to win big at Texas A&M, or is his system too simple? And why do opinions run so hot and cold on him?

Games picked:

USC (+3) at Stanford
BYU (+3) at Texas
Michigan (+5) at Notre Dame
Virginia Tech (+12) at Ohio State
Colorado State (+11) at Boise State
Michigan State (+12) at Oregon

There’s a lot more in there too, as the discussion weaves around. It’s as entertaining as ever, so check it out here or on iTunes. It’s free.
