Into October (9/30)
Ty and Dan plow through voice messages and emails before previewing the first slate of October games in the 2010 college football season.
Click Chorus: Sept. 30, 2010
Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Dr. Ken Jeong (The Hangover, Community, Kaiser Permanente), who received his medical degree from North Carolina. On now-infamous agent Gary Wichard’s dime. Ok there’s no proof of that. Or is there? No there isn’t. ***** • Yahoo Sports saddled up, did their best Lester Freamon, followed some North Carolina money and now UNC appears to be, as the cast of Laguna Beach: The Real O.C. would say, “dunzo.” Settle down, Tar Heels, you were always a women’s soccer school, anyway. Yahooooooooo! also provides copies of documents and an easy guide to the cast . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Ty Burrell of Modern Family (on tonight). Beyond Burrell being an Oregon native and Duck fan, his character even referenced the 1995 Rose Bowl beatdown at the hands of Penn State, where he attended grad school. Weird. Thanks Wikipedia! ***** • SB Nation’s Holly Anderson (Peete) likes Terrelle Pryor to take home the Heisman. The Heisman Pundit does not. • Oregon coach Chip Kelly received a six year extension, which pays him about $2.4 million a year through 2015. I was this close to linking a Dido song to best express how I . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Rick Sanchez, the CNN anchor who likes college football so much that he, well, gets torn apart by Jon Stewart (go to 6:20). ***** • SI.com’s Cory McCartney and ESPN‘s scrappy group of bloggers weigh in on the Heisman race. Cal QB Kevin Riley checks in at 947th and 835th, respectively. • Alabama QB Greg McElroy has some sore tender bits after Saturday’s Arkansas game. • Sports Illustrated released this week’s cover, which will hopefully lead to more people arguing that Boise State doesn’t play anyone, and if they played in another conference, . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Longhorn alumnus (and film director) Wes Anderson, who was probably far too busy figuring out the perfect font for an extra’s blazer to watch Texas wilt against UCLA in the Texas sun. ***** Walking Wounded • It’s football, people get hurt. Here are some of the more well-known victims: Purdue QB Robert Marve is undergoing an MRI on his left knee after an injury against Toledo. Ole Miss DE Kentrell Lockett is out for the year after tearing his ACL. Plenty of time for Twitter, though. Oregon State WR James Rodgers suffered a . . .
Week Four Review (9/26)
Ty and Dan replay all the Week Four action, including impressive wins by SEC teams, letdown showings by the Big 12, and the dawning of a special new Big Ten tradition.
VIDEO: The Solid Verbal (wk 4)
httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8WBVy2v9kE In this week’s video, we play the inaugural round of “Bank n’ Tank” – who’s going down + who we’re confident is still on an upward trajectory. Trajectory!

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Tommy Lee, who briefly attended Nebraska for an NBC reality show, arguably his second best performance on camera ever. I imagine he’s excited for Carl Pelini’s Blackshirts. ***** • Miami beat up on Pitt last night. And wasn’t even that good themselves. Normally, I’ll watch the Thursday night game in its entirety, no matter the matchup, but I packed it in pretty early and saw somebody named LaNieta dominate Wheel of Fortune. Thanks, Wannstedt. • Nebraska‘s defense, for the first time this season, has earned their black jerseys. Couldn’t have done out without . . .
Week Four Picks (9/23)
Ty and Dan make their picks for all the Week Four action and discuss Vegas as a possible location for a Pac-12 title game, suspicious BCS finances, and a host of Verballer messages.
