December 2010

Click Chorus: Dec. 31, 2010

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Alison Brie, who, with yesterday’s sponsor Gillian Jacobs, is stars on Community. And she’s on Mad Men. And … sorry, I lost my train of thought. Happy New Years! ***** • North Carolina absorbed an admirable performance from Tennessee and Vol QB Tyler Bray, took advantage of a [...]

Goodbye 2010

Ty and Dan preview another round of bowl games and talk about some of their observations, thus far, during bowl season.

Click Chorus: Dec. 30, 2010

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Community’s Gillian Jacobs. She attended Juilliard, which has no football team. But if they did, I’m sure they’d be admirably in-step and still probably better than Arizona. ***** • Maryland, in coach Ralph Friedgen‘s last game as the Terps’ coach, demolished ECU in the Military Bowl. Maryland RB [...]

Click Chorus: Dec. 29, 2010

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by high-school dropout and possible rules-violating Iowa booster Demi Moore, who is probably glad she learned Marcus Coker’s name just before last night’s Insight Bowl. ***** • Iowa, led by RB Marcus Coker‘s huge game, flatted Missouri 27-24 in the Insight Bowl. The new goal in Iowa City is [...]

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Seth Galifianakis, brother of Zach and proud NC State graduate. Go Wolfpack! ***** • Air Force beat Georgia Tech in the Triple Option Bowl in a game that can best be described as “14-7.” If anything, it was a victory for football purists — those who still aren’t [...]

More Bowls (12/27)

Ty and Dan preview nine more bowl games, discuss the insanity that was the Little Caesars Bowl, and unveil a major announcement.

Click Chorus: Dec. 27, 2010

Today’s Chorus is brought to you, in honor of today’s Independence Bowl by “Broken Arrow,” the greatest of all the Air Force movies that happen to star John Travolta and Christian Slater of all time. Or the worst. ***** • Last night, FIU beat Toledo 34-32 in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. The game involved [...]

Bob Green: Talker

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLN0xUtkFnU We’ll be interviewing all sorts of fun people come the offseason and it’s probably wise to assume that I’ll be emailing Montana Tech’s football department to see if Bob Green can come on and chat for a bit. Merry Christmas.

Click Chorus: Dec. 24, 2010

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Michigan alum Lucy Liu, who, all things considered, is probably pretty happy with the Christmas Eve Columbus, OH is having. ***** • San Diego State had their way with Navy 35-14 in last night’s Poinsettia Bowl.

Stocking Stuffer (12/23)

Ty and Dan do a mini preview of three bowl games and discuss the controversy at Ohio State, large wagers, and, uncomfortably, To Catch A Predator.

Click Chorus: Dec. 23, 2010

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Navy alumnus David Robinson. How crazy is it that he both attended the Naval Academy AND is nicknamed “The Admiral”? Sometimes life just gets it right. ***** • Boise State didn’t have much trouble with whatever it was that Utah became/always was. Now we can all look forward [...]

This is my brief, somewhat awkward adventure.

Click Chorus: Dec. 22, 2010

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Kelly Kapowski. Why? Because Chip Kelly is your AP Coach of the Year and his name has Kelly in it. Shouldn’t even have to explain these anymore. ***** • Louisville edged Southern Miss in last night’s Beef ‘O’ Brady’s St. Petersburg Bowl. See? Dance-brawls DO matter! • The [...]

Click Chorus: Dec. 21, 2010

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Mila Kunis. The Hawaii bowl is this week, so this picture seems appropriate. It appears that she briefly attended UCLA, but she’s mainly here because, well, she’s Mila Kunis. ***** • At this point isn’t it more of story when the teams going to the Las Vegas Bowl [...]

Click Chorus: Dec. 20, 2010

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by UCLA alumnus Sean Astin, aka Rudy, aka the guy from Encino Man, aka a hobbit of some sort. I imagine even Rudy isn’t thrilled with Rick Neuheisel’s wily offseason panic-fest. ***** • Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen was named ACC Coach of the year a few weeks ago. The [...]

Click Chorus: Dec. 17, 2010

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Legends of the Hidden Temple, a show that obviously foretold Big Ten happenings years into the future.
