No Bones About It (11/3)

Ty and Dan recap Florida State’s awesome showing against Miami, Michigan State’s dominant performance against Michigan, and Ohio State’s style points against Purdue.  Plus, a legendary second half for gamblers at the Cocktail Party, Notre Dame’s trouble with Navy, Mauktoberfest in November and a realistic question of whether anyone watches “Bones”.

Show Summary

The show starts off with Dan continuing to bask in the glory of being undefeated with his locks this season. Together he, Ty and Chris the Capper went 3-0 during the weekend.

Of course, they lead off with the Week 10 Reverbs.

Miami at Florida State: Florida State is too explosive for Miami and the Seminoles roll over the Canes in the second half. Dan continues to be impressed by Jameis Winston and the Florida State defense, and becomes more confident in their ability to dominate the opponent every week he watches. Ty agrees, almost disregarding the down and distance for Florida State on offense, thinking they might score on any play.

Michigan at Michigan State: Michigan gets clobbered by the Spartan’s suffocating defense. Dan likes how Michigan State matches up against Ohio State in a potential Big Ten title game.

Florida vs. Georgia: Ty is disappointed he didn’t make a Florida-Georgia Line joke on the last show and Dan is pleased he watched this game on mute. The only way Florida is relevant the rest of the year is if they beat Florida State.

Tennessee at Missouri: The Tigers keep rolling, 31-3. Dan says that Missouri’s defense has the ability to make any team’s offense struggle.

Oklahoma State at Texas Tech: Nothing says you don’t know what you’re doing more than when you throw the ball 71 times, Texas Tech. Dan would’ve liked to see Oklahoma State spread the ball out a little more than relying so heavily on Desmond Roland. Ty thinks this win sinks Texas Tech in the Big 12 race and shakes out the top of the league.

Northwestern at Nebraska: Northwestern continues to look like a hot mess, struggling to find itself after a bad break up. The Wildcats look good at times and then lose on a dagger of a Hail Mary at the end. Northwestern still has yet to win a game in the Big Ten.

Navy at Notre Dame: Ty says this was a really fun game to watch, if there was no personal bias involved. Notre Dame wins, but has no answer for Navy’s option attack. Ty is also encouraged by the emergence of freshman Tarean Folston’s in the muddled Irish backfield. Dan points out/rubs in that Tommy Rees threw as many touchdowns as he did interceptions.

USC at Oregon State: The guys start to change their tune about USC’s recent offensive performances. Ty is looking ahead to USC getting points against Stanford at home as a future lock. Ed Orgeron is making things a little more difficult for athletic director Pat Haden with how he’s improved the Trojans, but it could also be a function of how bad Lane Kiffin was.

Wisconsin at Iowa: Gary Anderson is killing it and gets a nice win on the road. The Badgers have the potential to go 10-2.

Illinois at Penn State: Christian Hackenberg is looking good as he continues his elite quarterback internship.

Mississippi State at South Carolina: The guys contemplate whether Dan Mullen gets fired if the Bulldogs go 5-7.

Virginia Tech at Boston College: Does Boston College have a bad loss? If they stay hot, there is a chance they finish 8-4.

Colorado at UCLA

UTEP at Texas A&M

Auburn at Arkansas

Clemson at Virginia

Kansas at Texas

Ohio State at Purdue

The show closes with Dan running through the Patriot League, a Pants Across America update and some information on The Verbies.
