Blood Week (which Jason and Ryan laid out a helpful guide to here) usually happens later in the calendar, but there's nothing stopping it from popping up earlier. We looked at three Septembers where the rankings became a real revolving door.- 2008, when Blood Week went to both coasts- 1974, when Blood Week become Blood Fortnight- And 1984, when we had a whole dang BLOOD MONTH BONUS FEEDBACK TIME!

We didn't necessarily learn a lot in Week 3, but what we did was important: just because Iowa-Iowa State is El Assico doesn't mean several other games aren't also El Assico. Looking at you, Florida-Kentucky. And Pitt-Penn State. And Michigan State-Arizona State. BONUS: stay to the end and learn about the dumbest midgame crowd entertainment plan ever, courtesy of Indiana! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Live In Houston!

Live In Houston!


We went back to Texas, and this time we talked about something wholly irrelevant to the audience: dead or mostly dead rivalries. Does that mean we spent a lot of time on Mizzou and Nebraska? Yes, yes it does. We're very good at reading the room, and for the right amount of money, we will perform at your wedding.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Like Hugh Freeze, Spencer's "out sick" for this episode, so Holly, Jason, and Ryan get to dissect Week 2, from LSU's fireworks stand offense to Hawaii controlling the Pac-12 to which OTHER old Tennessee coaches should take over for Jeremy Pruitt to P.J. Fleck getting enough video game cash to buy something other than the default outfit.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Make Your Own Rivalry

Make Your Own Rivalry


Long ago, Colorado decided it was going to turn Nebraska into a rival. It took a while to work, but the Buffs pulled it off, so we're following their example and creating new potential rivalries of our own with your help. (Oh, we also wrote some of them down.) This episode is also about Spencer being a coastal elite with a sincere love for Italian sparkling wine, if any of that appeals to you.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Look, there's a significant amount of football discussion on this episode, seeing how Tennessee lost at home to Georgia State and (other football games that are not nearly as funny as that). I'm sure we said funny or insightful or stupid things about those games, but let's be honest about why we're all here: to talk about Hugh Freeze coaching a football game from a hospital bed they put in the press box.Because Hugh Freeze coached a football game from a hospital bed they put in the press box.Learn more about your ad choices.

ATTENTION LAWYERS: THIS IS NOT THE HEISMAN TROPHY WE"RE TALKING ABOUT. PLEASE DO NOT SUE US, AS WE DON'T HAVE MUCH MONEY ANYWAYS. This episode is about the People's Heisman, an entirely different award in that it doesn't currently exist in trophy form and has never formally been awarded to anyone, and a very similar award in that we only sort of kind of decided who qualifies for it. Simply put, the People's Heisman is for the players we remember fondly not necessarily because they were the best or most accomplished but because they were just so very memorable. It's for a Quinton Flowers, or a Joel Lanning, or a Scooby Wright, or a Jared Lorezen (RIP). Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Between Florida and Miami trying to melt down in any possible direction and Hawaii-Arizona doing the same but with way more scoring and quarterbacks who look like they wanna fight Johnny Utah, Week 0 was...a colossal success! We talk about that and a few storylines we'll be throwing our stupid little hearts into this year. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
