Dave Portnoy is the King of hiring people based on gut instinct. He hired Brandon Walker out of spite off of a periscope to stick it to my bookie, and man did that pay off huge. Now the newest member of the ship is also plucked off a stream from Mississippi, Dave’s going to that southern well of talent!
Is Dave genius for bringing in a hated school rival of BFW? In my opinion yes, I think the college football content gave at barstool just went straight up. Not only is Ben Mintz an Ole Miss fan he is also a gambler and out of shape matching him perfectly against BWalk. The pirate ship will be rocking during the college football season and beyond with this new rival.
