This episode starts with a discussion of a long-time Tampa adult entertainment store and mostly ends with unsolved axe murders. Somewhere in between those, there is discussion of the pre-Christmas bowl games, but only as they are theoretically useful for doing crimes. This is the 40 for 40 and shame on you if you expected something different.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Dabo Swinney gets into some light idolatry, Nick Saban and Jim Harbaugh will get into a fight on Spaceship Earth, every bowl game is just a 1950s vacation to somewhere with cigarettes, and the Sun Bowl is the only bowl game anyone should really playLearn more about your ad choices. Visit
Spencer, Jason, and Ryan meet to review the nominees for the 2019 BVP Award, the award we bestow upon the most college football player of the season. Many deserving candidates were discussed, from Hawaii QB Cole McDonald to LSU QB Joe Burrow's Butt. But only one could win, and we congratulate that winner, who we will not name in this description because that defeats the purpose. We also talked about Coach of the Year and Game of the Year nominees and winners. Are these awards real, you ask? Is anything, on a long enough geologic time span, we counter?Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
This episode contains discussion of many important games and coaching changes around the sport of college football, but let us be perfectly clear: the only actually important part of this show is our demand that Mizzou hire Coach Brick. Coach Brick is the way of the future for Mizzou football. Any option that is not Coach Brick is a terrible plan.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
We continue our review of historical blood weeks with a trip to Thanksgiving Week, 2010. Ralph Friedgen was still at Maryland. Mike Stoops was still at Arizona. Dabo and Clemson went 6-7! These were different times, but that does not mean there was an absence of ranking upheaval, even if it cost us one of our best shots at a non-power making the BCS Championship.Learn more about your ad choices.

So many things happened on this week's episode. Some of them were planned, like talking about the FCS bracket, reviewing how great it is that FIU's kicker throat-slashed Miami, praising Herm Edwards Brain for being trapped in the NFL, or feeling afraid of Ohio State. Some of them were not planned, like Jason's weird eating habits revealed or Billy Dee William's Grizzly Bear Movie. Again - only college football podcast, thank you for listening, etc.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Thanksgiving Disasters

Thanksgiving Disasters


Perhaps more than any other holiday, Thanksgiving mixes volatile family dynamics, recipes that amateur cooks can easily bungle, travel stress, and the potential for major property damage.

As we stumble into November, some of the possibilities contained within our Bold Predictions Game have proven true or false. Kentucky didn't beat Florida. An FCS team beat a Power 5 team. Auburn didn't lose to its first four Power 5 opponents (not even close, actually). Hawaii beat a Pac-12 team. Twice!But many predictions are still up for grabs. Which power conference won't make the playoff? Will every Big 12 coach stay in their current job? Is another school going to leave the American, inspired by UConn's bravery? Can UMass beat Northwestern? Can South Carolina beat Clemson? Will we get a Pac-12 title game with no California participants? Does Spencer remember our New Mexico Bowl partnership proposal hashtag?No, Spencer does not.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
WARNING: This episode contains praise for the Ohio State Buckeyes, substantive discussion of Michigan-Notre Dame, a fair amount of Rose Bowl talk, and multiple examinations of how the Big Ten could get two teams into the Playoff. While there are other topics discussed, we must warn anyone who is not prepared to get this Midwestern about the journey ahead of them, which features a guest appearance from Ludicrous Playoff Scenario Seer Alex Kirshner.Learn more about your ad choices.

These days NFL teams only move two places: to Los Angeles or away from Los Angeles (Las Vegas counts as both, just trust us). This sucks and is boring, so we are taking matters into our own hands and moving teams wherever we want using a confusing draft process with unclear rules. It's fine, it works out for everyone involved.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Holly, Jason, and Spencer come to you bearing the following tidings (I'm not totally sure what tidings are but I am also too lazy to look):- Behold our SOONER SCHOONER CHAOS POWERS- Some early nominees for the 2019 BVP, given to college football's most college football player- ILLINOIS LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOOO- Butts- Now you know a single thing about Ball State!- Tell a friend to attend our live show in JacksonvilleLearn more about your ad choices.

In this episode, we celebrate the eternal cyclical beauty of the Pac-12 devouring its own, Georgia functioning as a perennial drunken bridesmaid, and renew our blood oaths against Earth’s boldest enemy, The Moon.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Georgia lost a Muschampin' Contest, but that does not make this week a Blood Week. (Patience, you who thirst for chaos and woe!) We will give you a dollar in Fullcast Download Store Credit if you can tell us what the Pac-12 South standings are, we determine how many games Iowa can win the rest of the year if they score twelve points and only twelve points in all of those games, we talk a lot about the extended Fansville universe, and the Sandman stops by for a minute.Learn more about your ad choices.

The Edges of Fandom

The Edges of Fandom


Because we work with and around Braves fans, we decided to spend this episode contemplating the losses that have pushed various fanbases to consider just walking away and being done with the whole thing. Warning: if you are a fan of the Pirates, Bengals, and Arkansas, this will be a super unpleasant episode for you. But your life is probably kinda weird to start with, no?Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Spencer, Holly, and Jason enjoyed Iowa-Michigan the way they didn't know it was intended to be consumed: entirely via Michigan radio broadcast. (Ryan just watched it on TV, like an idiot.) That's why most of this episode is Midwestern chortling and shouting, even when we talk about:- The ACC embracing nonsense as a conference identity- The Tennessee squirrel- Whether or not Pitt can fire the superweapon again, or even fired it at all- Auburn-Florida- Whatever the hell the Pac-12 is doingLearn more about your ad choices.
