Every year Sportstalk hits the road and takes the show on the road to the FCS football programs around South Carolina. Tour stop number four for the upcoming 2013 season took Phil Kornblut to Greenville to visit the beautiful campus of the Furman Paladins, and their athletic department that recently unveiled new digs.
Paladin head coach Bruce Fowler sat in front of the mic with Korn first to discuss all the cosmetic changes that have taken place around campus. Next, Fowler recapped the 2012 season in which Furman went an uncharacteristic 3-8, many of those 8 losses being really close losses.

Two Furman players, all-american offensive lineman Dakota Dozier and linebacker Gary Wilkins, joined Korn next to talk about the upcoming season. Dozier and Wilkins elaborate on the new material things the school has to offer with the facility upgrades, how to start winning some of those close games they lost last season, and much more.
