Join hosts Spencer Hall, Jason Kirk and Ryan Nanni, as they delve into the biggest stories of the week—or not. Produced by Banner Society and the Vox Media Podcast Network.

If you're Mike Bloomberg or someone associated with the Mike Bloomberg 2020 Campaign, don't read below this. Just reach out ( and let's figure out how your money can become our money. If you're not Mike Bloomberg, this episode is about theoretical matchups that would fluster 2019 LSU, and by theoretical we mean everything from very good Miami teams to time-traveling Derrick Henry clones. Does it make sense? More than our proposal for a top-loading microwave does! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Is Odell Beckham Jr. a robot who spits out currency compulsively? Which Olympian was Spencer completely dismissive towards? Why is every Boston College coach's name "[First Name] Boston" and do you care that we just made that up on our own? Is Robocop real and how did he get to New Orleans? Can God make Ed Orgeron so strong that even He can't pin Coach O? Early in this episode, Spencer mentions the memorial fund for Ed Aschoff. If you're interested in donating but don't want to rewind to listen to him read the address, here you go: Donations to the Edward Aschoff Memorial Fund at UF’s College of Journalism and Communications can be made out to the “U.F. Foundation”, sent to P.O. Box 14425, Gainesville, FL 32604, Attn: Gift Processing. Please note "Edward Aschoff Memorial Fund" in the memo area. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
LSU-Clemson promises to be an intriguing game, with plenty of skill talent, schematic variation, and narrative meat to enjoy. And we talk about a lot of those things, because this podcast can talk about football when it wants to, dammit! But first we make you listen to some nonsense about the NFL playoffs, Nas, Ed Orgeron's shopping habits, Spencer's bare legs, and Pokemon. WELCOME! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit



Holly and Spencer really just wanted to talk about the most important event of the bowl season: Kirby Smart taking the heaviest Gatorade bath of all time. (And the resulting stories of our worst workplace spills) Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Christmas Disasters

Christmas Disasters


On this episode, people are injured/attacked by brothers, birds, guns, knives, Nerf ammunition, fool's gravy, squirrels, fish bones, and The Emotional Expectations That Come With Christmas. It's fun! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Technically, this is the bowl preview episode that contains both semifinal games. You will therefore not be surprised to learn that we spent most of our time discussing Potato Bowl recipes, Outback menu nutrition information, and whether all citrus fruits are actually just oranges. You're welcome! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Rejoice! The 40 for 40 moves to the location-based bowls, including the Arizona, Belk, Birmingham, Camping World, Mobile, Music City, Sun, and Texas. Somehow, these bowls are turned into a progressively harder video game of sorts, which ends with Jimbo Fisher buying someone else's hair. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
At least two things happen on this episode: The Alamo, Armed Forces, Cheez-It, First Responder, Independence, Liberty, and Military Bowls are mentioned in some way. We trade Missouri for Mexico. Which one of those two is worse for national unity? Hard to say. We'll look back in ten or twenty years and know the answer, though, so that's fun. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
It's time to review the Cotton, Gator, Holiday, Quick Lane, Pinstripe, Red Box, and Rose Bowls based on the following very silly premise - if you had to go back in time and convince 2009 you that this was the 2019 national championship game, what tale would you spin to make that sound convincing?

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 play Learn 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?

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.

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.

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. That's a mixture primed for disaster and, good LORD, did y'all have some disasters to share with us. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Week 12 left Spencer, Holly, and Ryan with many important questions, like: Have Chip and Joanna ever found a corpse in a property? Why do people agree to go to Iowa? What do you with Utah at this point? What's the meanest thing you can say about the Georgia offense? How many people got convicted for that big biker shootout in Waco a while back?

Bomani Jones joins Spencer, Holly, and Jason for a discussion of Banner Society and The Right Time’s series on how money and college football players meet Bobby Petrino wearing Sugar Bowl gear to his motorcycle crash presser Texas A&M and how you can avoid wearing a uniform by just getting a dog Which schools have never tried cheating Learn more about your ad choices.
