Food: Cal (Berkeley, CA)

Today’s college town restaurant/bar recommendations takes us to Berkeley, CA, courtesy of Verballer Rob. As always feel free to add anything he may have missed by emailing us at SolidVerbal@gmail.com ***** Top Dog: Always packed on gamedays, but worth it.  The locations farther from campus (on Hearst and Center) should be less busy on gamedays [...]

Today's Chorus is brought to you by Clemson alumnus and new Entertainment Tonight host Nancy O'Dell. There's no way she's happy about the way Kyle Parker's season turned out, but she'll be excited to learn that I saw her a few years ago at an outdoor mall and she was very perdy. ***** • Boise [...]

Today's Chorus is brought to you by Vanilla Ice. I have no idea if he's a fan of Miami football and/or Randy Shannon, but I can no longer hear anyone say "A1A" without yelling out, "Beachfront Avenue!!!" so I'm sliding him in today. ***** • TCU is joining the Big East and it will join [...]

Two Man Wolfpack (11/28)

Ty and Dan break down a wild weekend that saw a monster upset by Nevada, a triumphant victory for Auburn, and a defining loss for Rich Rodriguez against Ohio State.  Plus, wackiness in the Big 12, closure in the ACC, and a host of listener Reverbs.

Ty and Dan deliver a super-sized episode, chock full of analysis for all the week's biggest rivalries, listener e-mails and voice messages.

Today's Chorus is brought to you by Billings, MT Mayor Tom Hanel. I needlessly insulted his fine town (below) and am thus making it up to him and his town here. Tom is the one with the mustache. ***** • Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee doesn't like Boise State or TCU and doesn't think [...]

Food: Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI)

Today's Chorus is brought to you by legendary horse trainer and Arizona graduate (Major: Race Track Industry!) Bob Baffert, though I have no idea if he follows college football and has a horse in the race when it comes to Friday's game at Oregon. You see what I did there? Comedy. ***** • Nebraska coach [...]

Food: Oregon Ducks (Eugene, OR)

We've talked about doing this for a little while, so I decided to write something up and get the ball rolling. Since people are traveling to road games and curious about seeing and going to college games in new college towns for them, we decided to put together some recommendations of where to eat when [...]

Today's Chorus is brought to you by Brooklyn Decker, the wife of Nebraska fan Andy Roddick. She probably doesn't have an opinion of angry Pelinis or Texas A&M ball-grabbin', but she's, uh, sorry, I lost my train of thought. ***** • Nebraska coach Bo Pelini was and probably still is steaming mad at everyone involved [...]

Week 12 Review (11/21)

Click Chorus: Nov. 19, 2010

Today's Chorus is brought to you by former Georgia State student Julia Roberts. Alabama may have the money, championships, tradition, and name recognition, but they don't have the star of "Eat Pray Love." Take that, Tide. Take that. ***** • UCLA lost at Washington last night in a rather unimpressive showing. UCLA fans, much like [...]

Smoke & Fire (11/18)

Ty & Dan discuss the latest in the Cam Newton pay-for-play situation and the need to renovate Husky Stadium, and break down all the Week 12 action.

Click Chorus: Nov. 18, 2010

Today's Chorus is brought to you by Idaho governor Butch Otter, who, and it wouldn't surprise you given the antics of the two most notable football teams in his state, ascended to his current position by simply targeting his opponents and then leading with his helmet. Politics as usual. ***** Ty wrote his "Thursday Proverbs" [...]

The Thursday Proverbs

You know the Brian Kelly era has gotten off to a rocky start when you start wondering whether Charlie Weis would ever consider coming back to Notre Dame. As a defensive coordinator. No, things have not gone according to plan. The Irish defense is back to its old tricks of letting teams convert on critical [...]

Click Chorus: Nov. 17, 2010

Today's Chorus is brought to you by Nick Nolte, crazy person and former Arizona State student (and football player). It's still yet to be decided if Nolte is the acting world's Vontaze Burfict or Burfict is ASU's Nolte. In any case, be careful around either of these two. ***** • The FBI has quietly been [...]

Today's Chorus is brought to you by James Lipton, host of Inside the Actor's Studio. I couldn't locate where/if he attended college, but I've actually become pretty excited about the upcoming appearance of Cal's defensive line on his show. ACTING!! ***** • Florida coach Urban Meyer expects Steve Addazio to remain in place as the [...]

Click Chorus: Nov. 15, 2010

Today's Chorus is brought to you by Chris Farley (Marquette '86), who is WAY funnier than Nick Fairley. He also wears little coats in a much more convincing fashion. ***** • Auburn pulled away late from Georgia to remain undefeated. Both The Wiz and SportsbyBrooks have irrefutable video evidence that Auburn DT Nick Fairley would [...]

Close Call (11/14)

Ty and Dan go through all the Week 11 action and break down Oregon's close win on the road against Cal.
