Ty and Dan sort through a clever batch of listener e-mails, tweets and Facebook comments, and argue about the future of college football broadcasts, fan attire power rankings, the dying art of the blowout, the best games in recent memory, favorite Chick-Fil-A sauces and a creeper at the mall telling Ty he looks like Jackie Chan.

Show Summary

On today’s episode of The Solid Verbal, Ty and Dan take a break from conference previews to look over some happenings of the college football preseason, tackle emails and Ty has someone compare his looks to that of Jackie Chan.

The guys start off by running through some of their favorite parts of fall camp. Previews from guys like Paul Myerberg and Dan Connelly top the list, along with new personalities emerging and eyeing up depth charts. They also get into what games they’re most excited for during the first three weeks of the season.

The discussion switches to the Pac-12’s recent appeal to fans to drop DirectTV and to sign up for a television provider that carries the Pac-12 Network. The guys talk about how much of a hassle switching cable/satellite providers is and whether they’d actually follow suit to get the network. There’s also a sprinkling of FUN talk about Fox Sports 1.

Ty and Dan dive then into the inbox pay homage to the Verballers who wrote in with questions. Some of the topics and questions addressed:

  • The Oregon kicking game
  • Ranking game day attire with the choice of sundresses, bowties, body paint, jerseys and t-shirts (Spoiler alert: Sundresses always win)
  • Dan looking to invest in Kelly green chinos for game days
  • What are craziest games you’ve ever seen?
  • How bad is Oklahoma going to be this season and what can I do about it, besides drinking a lot?
  • Jameis Winston and the “Manziel disease”
  • What is the game/sports moment you missed for a lady?
  • Maximum acceptable age to eat a hot pocket
  • Best Chick-fil-A sauces
  • A discussion on blowouts

Last and certainly not least, Ty tells the tale of a kiosk guy in his local mall informing he looks similar to Jackie Chan. This leaves Ty a battered man.
