Prior to the regular season, the Cover IV Podcast Football Analysts will analyze the teams in their coverage area. The areas will be North, Southern Tier, East and West.
Each week “Coach” Smith and Roger Neel will analyze “Games of the Week”. Only games where both teams are from Section IV, will be considered for analysis. All classifications will be considered.
"The Second Season" Section IV Playoffs:
Each classification will be analyzed, each round.
The Cover IV Podcast will not cover NYS Playoff games. Although, during this portion of the season, there may be "Next Fan Up" related Cover IV Podcast episodes. Submit your "Next Fan Up" episode idea.
The Cover IV Podcast will have a dedicated episode for each Section IV NYS Championship Team. Each episode will vary based on the coach’s availability.
