Ty and Dan welcome Eric Hansen from the South Bend Tribune to the show to discuss Michael Floyd’s status, Brian Kelly’s philosophies, the sudden rise of the Irish defense, and realistic expectations for the Notre Dame football program in 2011. Plus, more news about players getting paid. Who would’ve guessed?

Today’s Chorus is (again) brought to you by Tommy Lee, brief Nebraska drummer, and longtime strip club enthusiast. Who would’ve thought that yesterday would’ve brought the Fiesta Bowl CEO and Lee one step closer? ***** • Fiesta Bowl CEO John Junker was fired for being laughably corrupt — using bowl funds to, among other things, underwrite strip club excursions, golf vacations, and political contribution reimbursements. If you’re going to go out, this is the way to go. • Four former Auburn players spoke with HBO about the pay-for-play scheme they were involved in while in school. Just warning you — . . .
Ty and Dan are joined by Jake Trotter from The Oklahoman to discuss Oklahoma as the preseason No. 1 team, the future of the Big 12, and annual Bob Stoops coaching rumors. Plus, Verballer e-mails.
Hangover: Fiesta Edition!
Well this makes a lot more sense now, doesn’t it?

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Pat Sajak, Columbia College (Chicago) alumnus. I condsidered using him alongside Trebek in last week’s video, but there’s just too much damn clapping and crazy sounds behind his voice. Gotta keep it clean, Wheel. ***** • Touted UCF QB signee DaMarcus Smith asked for his release just a few weeks after signing day. This is after a last-minute switch to UCF from Louisville. I’m guessing Smith is the annoying guy at the table who asks for a couple more minutes while everyone else is ready to order. Twice. • CBS’s Bryan Fischer previews . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Don Draper, since we won’t be seeing him for at least another year, damnit. ***** • SI.com’s Andy Staples says Ohio State coach Jim Tressel is leaving his school few options in regards to his future. School president Gordon Gee might have to fire himself to avoid this. • South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier was fake arrested last week at practice to prove a point. Wonderful. • This is Alabama‘s newest defensive tackle. Man, I remember when I looked like that. Glad that’s all behind me. • Texas Tech had a spring game. . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by USC attendee Tom Selleck, whose Magnum PI character was aped perfectly on Archer last night with “Terms of Enrampagement.” If you’re not watching Archer, I’m not sure you should be reading or listening to us. Ok, I take that back. Watch Archer, though. ***** • If you heard yesterday’s show with Yahoo’s Charles Robinson, it won’t come as a surprise that embattled Ohio State coach Jim Tressel did, in fact, forward the emails (he got from his lawyer source regarding memorabilia sales) to QB Terrelle Pryor‘s hometown mentor. • South Carolina über DE . . .
