Today's Chorus is brought to you by Chicago State attendee Kanye West. "College Graduate" or "Ph.D Candidate" just doesn't have the same ring for a huge hip-hop album, does it? ***** • Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd got probation in his DUI case. I wonder how he's going to celebrate. • New Wisconsin QB Russell [...]

Richard Deitsch (6/28)

Dan talks with SI.com's Richard Deitsch about media coverage of college football, the broad reach of ESPN, and the Longhorn Network.

Today's Chorus is brought to you by Purdue graduate Jim Gaffigan, who probably, despite the bacon and hot pockets, still has healthier knees than Ralph Bolden. ***** • Former NC State QB Russell Wilson is officially a Wisconsin Badger. I don't even know why we're wasting time actually playing out the B1G season. Sam Keller [...]

Don't do it. ***** • Former UNC coach John Blake has a reputation, and part of that reputation includes biology charisma. • Former USC WR Lonnie White (early-mid 80's) received payments [...]

Bruce Feldman

Dan talks with ESPN.com's Bruce Feldman about recent college football news and his new book with Mike Leach, "Swing Your Sword." It can't be stressed enough how good the show has gotten since Ty left for Hawaii. Ok, it's taken back -- it can't be stressed how good this show is because of Bruce Feldman. Enjoy!

Today's Chorus is brought to you by Mary-Louise Parker, former North Carolina School of the Arts student. And Weeds star. And … I lost my train of thought. She probably doesn't know about Butch Davis's troubles, and I don't care. ***** • North Carolina pretty much broke every rule. Total bad boys of the ACC, [...]

Awful. • [...]

West Coast Kevin / Inbox

With Ty in Hawaii for a wedding, I spoke with longtime friend of the show West Coast Kevin about Cliff Harris and Oregon, early Heisman odds, and the upcoming Longhorn Network. We then read and reacted to the overflowing inbox and closed with some solid Whale Wars analysis. Enjoy!

Today's Chorus is brought to you by former UCLA attendee and noted insane person Nicolas Cage. It's about time. ***** • Does Ohio State AD Gene Smith want to hire private detectives to tail Buckeye football players? Um, possibly. • CBS's Dennis Dodd has ten facts about the Rose Bowl. My weird Rose Bowl fact: [...]

Today's Chorus is brought to you by former Boy Meets World actress Danielle Fishel. She apparently hosted some show thereafter.

And our high school is terrible at football. ***** • Oregon All-American CB/PR Cliff Harris has been suspended indefinitely in [...]

Click Chorus: June 15, 2011

Today's Chorus is brought to you by Ben Schwartz, Union College (Schenectady!) graduate. He was good doing shorts for ESPN and is now great occasionally on Parks and Rec. Also, his hair is eerily similar to mine. ***** • Terrelle Pryor pulled a Jason Giambi and apologized for nothing in particular. Sports! • CBS's Brett [...]

Click Chorus: June 10, 2011

Today's Chorus is brought to you by JJ Abrams, Sarah Lawrence alumnus and Super 8 director. And yes Sarah Lawrence actually has an equestrian team. ***** • Former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor and his lawyer have threatened legal action against ESPN for "bogus" reports.
