College football week four lines are difficult this week, thanks to some down matchups, but Dan Rubenstein decides to head to Van Horn in Brooklyn for their famous Southern fried chicken and fried fish sandwiches to break down the action. Also, life changing mac and cheese in stunning 1080p HD is a thing.
Ty and Dan make their picks for an underwhelming slate of games in college football’s fourth week, discuss the Bruce Feldman Body Blow Theory, and talk about Bo Pelini’s angry rant. Plus, an uncomfortable game of F-Marry-Kill with Lane Kiffin, Nick Saban and Randy Edsall.
5:42 – We have a second half kickoff! Texas A&M has some work to do.
5:45 – Alabama just went three-and-out after McCarron overthrew a wide open receiver over the middle. I’m torn on how I feel about McCarron as a pro prospect. On one hand, he’s lost only twice over his career and has two BCS championship rings. On the other, well, that was a bad throw he just made. I feel the exact same way about McCarron as I did Greg McElroy, even though I know McCarron has more physical tools.
Saturday’s rematch between Alabama and Texas A&M drew the highest television ratings for a regular season college football game in seven years. To be sure, it felt like we waited seven years to actually see it played. Ever since Johnny Manziel rose to superstardom by upsetting the Crimson Tide last November, September 14, 2013 had been circled on the calendar, dissected throughout the college football world, and mentioned as the main event for an entire season.
To commemorate this historic event and Alabama’s thrilling 49-42 victory, I decided to keep a minute-by-minute diary…
Ty and Dan walk back through a marathon day of college football action, including Alabama’s triumph in College Station, Mack Brown’s last stand in Austin, Bo Pelini’s disappointing defense, USC’s offensive resurrection, and Wisconsin’s stomach-punch loss. Plus, Week Three Reverbs!
