Episode 85 - 2015 College Football Season Preview

August 24, 2015

It's time for our 2015 College Football Preview special.  We've already broken down the power 5 conferences so now it's time to look at the broad landscape of stories heading into the season.  Bill Bender from The Sporting News joins us to discuss the many question marks heading into the season including:

-Which team will have the toughest job filling empty spots?
-Could the Big Ten be the top conference this season?
-Should we believe the Tennessee hype?
-Ohio State's biggest obstacle to repeating
-and how far are we from going to a 6 or 8 team playoff?
Plus, we'll talk with Al Botta and Jarrett Singer, two men who are living the dream of visiting every college football stadium in the country.  They'll help us construct the perfect game day environment based on their visits.
And to finish it off, I'll give you my pics for who wins the big conferences and makes it to the college football playoff (ACC fans might want to tune out).

Episode 80 - Big Ten Preview

August 5, 2015

Our 2015 College Football conference previews rolls on with the Big Ten.  Dave Revsine, the lead studio host for the Big Ten Network joins us to break down the conference.  Not only do they have the defending national champions but there are also some big name coaches joining the Big Ten this year, Jim Harbaugh (Michigan), Paul Cryst (Wisconsin) and Mike Riley (Nebraska).  Dave will tell us...

-Which coach is in the best situation to win now?
-How much pressure is on Harbaugh to win now?
-Can Christian Hackenberg overcome a abysmal Penn State O-line?
-Which player is poised for a breakout season?
-and can Ohio State get back to the college football playoffs?
Plus, we'll talk about Dave's new book The Opening Kickoff: The Tumultuous Birth of a Football Nation. Are things really all that different now than they were at the genesis of college football?  Or is everything old, new again?

Episode 48: National Championship Recap

January 14, 2015

Urban Meyer solidifies himself as one of the best coaches in the game with Ohio State's National Championship win over Oregon.  We'll recap the game, what went right for the Bucks and what went wrong for the Ducks.  Plus we'll discuss the Rex Ryan hire in Buffalo and talk to Jay Busbee from Yahoo Sports about the NFL moving to LA.


Episode 46: And here come the Buckeyes!

January 8, 2015

In the interest of equal time we wanted to make sure we got ready for the National Championship game from the Ohio State side of things.  James Grega, Assistant Sports Editor from The Latern joined us to break things down Buckeye style.  Is Cardell Jones the best QB on the roster?  Can the Buckeye defense keep pace with the Ducks offense?  Is this team built for a multiple year run?  And can I get an Ohio State student to say the words Michigan Wolverines?


Episode 43: And Then There Were Two

January 4, 2015

It's all come down to this, the College Football Playoff has given us the final two teams, Ohio State and Oregon.  We'll look back at round one of the playoffs.  What went wrong for Alabama and Florida State.  We'll also ask Kelly Ward Sports Editor for The Crimson White if this was a disappointing season for Bama and if she thinks Nick Saban could go back to the NFL.

Plus, who's the clubhouse leader for the Buffalo Bills head coaching job. 

Episode 40: Welcome Back Brendan McDaniels!

December 22, 2014

The gloss has been knocked off the Maize and Blue.  In this episode we welcome back our good friend Brendan McDaniels to talk about why no one want the Michigan job to the lack of scoring in college football.  We'll also try to figure out what's wrong with the Bills and Saints and talk about where Jay Cutler goes from here.  


Episode 34: Spartans and Tigers and Bears…eccchhhh

November 10, 2014

It was a bad weekend for lots of teams.  We saw 3 teams essentially eliminated from the College Football Playoff and if you're a Bills fan just remember it could be worse, you could be a Bears fan.  Lots of trouble in the Windy City.  We break it all down.


Episode 33: Kudos?

November 5, 2014

After a spite filled FU list, can I bounce back and actually give kudos to a few select people doing good work this week?  You'll have to listen to find out.  One person deserving is Michael Kay the man who took on Mike Francessa in a big way today.  


Episode 25: The FU List

September 11, 2014

It's the podcast I always knew was coming.  Week 2 of the college football season brought out a lot of F bombs from me and I'm letting them fly at a lot of people in this weeks podcast.  Including, why Jeff Quinn shouldn't be the UB coach, why Michigan has never fully recovered from the Appalachian State loss, and the horrible schedule makers in FBS.
