Episode Description

Ty and Dan talk through a limited slate of Week 0 games and discuss whether it’s time to push the panic button on USC’s defense after a questionable showing against San Jose State, and wax poetic about Sam Hartman’s impact on Notre Dame’s offense in a runaway victory against the Navy Midshipmen. Plus, Jacksonville State gets off the FBS schnide, the Rourkening gets derailed by San Diego State, UMass gets a big win and Vandy wins a clunker over an improved Hawaii squad. Also, a look at the composite Top 25 compiled by the Verballerhood and a quick conversation about which teams are over- and underrated going into the 2023 college football season.

Play for a shot to win a PlayStation 5 in Week One!

[MUSIC]
>> ALL RIGHT, THE WEEK ZERO OFFICIALLY IN THE BOOKS,
FAVORITES WERE TWO AND FIVE AGAINST THE SPREAD.
THE BIG DOGS EATEN IN WEEK ZERO, SIR.
HOW ARE YOU?
– I’M GOOD.
I WATCHED WEEK ZERO ON AND OFF.
I WAS AWAY FOR THE NOTRE DAME GAME
BECAUSE I AM INSISTENT ON ENJOYING
THE LAST FEW DROPS OF SUMMER.
I WAS JUST EATING PIZZA.
IT WAS NO BIG DEAL, BUT I WATCHED THE ENTIRETY
WHEN I GOT BACK.
I WATCHED USC SAN JOSE STATE AND I SKIMMED.
NO, I WATCHED A GOOD CHUNK OF VANDY HAWAII,
WHICH IS ACTUALLY LIKE KIND OF A CRAZY WILD FUN GAME.
SO I’M GOOD.
I’M EXCITED TO TALK ABOUT WEEK ZERO.
IT WAS, IT PROVIDED US CONTENT, TY,
WHICH IS THE FIRST TIME IT’S HAPPENED IN QUITE SOME TIME.
– INDEED, LOOK, THE FIRST QUARTERS OF THESE GAMES,
TO ME, FELT LIKE THEY FLEW BY.
WE’VE GOT NEW CLOCK RULES NOW.
– RIGHT.
– CLOCK DOESN’T STOP AS FREQUENTLY.
AND AS A RESULT, I’M WATCHING THESE GAMES
AND I’M WATCHING MY BETS
AND I’M SORT OF LIKE IN A COLD SWEAT
BECAUSE IT FEELS LIKE THE GAME IS MOVING WAY QUICKER
THAN I AM ACCUSTOMED TO.
AND IN THE CASE OF THE USC-SAN JOSE STATE GAME,
MAYBE IT WAS SORT OF THE UNDOING FOR MY JEWELED PARLELE.
I STILL LOVE THE NAME OF THAT BET.
IT DIDN’T HIT BECAUSE USC DID NOT COVER 8.5
IN THAT FIRST QUARTER.
BUT WHERE DO YOU WANT TO START HERE WITH WEEK 0?
WE HAVE A LOT TO DISCUSS MORE THAN, AS YOU SAID,
WE MIGHT OTHERWISE HAVE.
– YEAH, I SUPPOSE LET’S START WITH USC,
JUST BECAUSE IT’S A NATURAL TRANSITION.
AND I GUESS THAT’S THE DANGER IN WAGERING
IN QUARTER TOTALS OR HALF TOTALS,
IS THAT MAYBE THE COIN FLIP MEANS A WHOLE LOT MORE
TO EVERYBODY IF YOU’RE BETTING LIKE A FIRST FIRST QUARTER UNDER A FIRST QUARTER TOTAL
OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT BECAUSE OF THE SPEED OF THE CLOCK. SO USC SAN JOSE STATE SPARTANS
OF SAN JOSE IN THE COLISEUM IS THE FIRST GAME AS A REIGNING HEISMAN WINNER FOR CALEB WILLIAMS
AND WE HAVE HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR USC. I DON’T KNOW IF THIS GAME WAS AS CLOSE AS THE FINAL
SCORE INDICATES WHICH WAS WHAT A WHAT 56-28 WAS THE FINAL 28 IS A 31 POINT CLOSE TO YEAH
WE WERE PRETTY CLOSE. WE WERE BOTH IN LIKE THE 55-20 TYPE RANGE.
UM, WHAT WERE YOUR TAKEAWAYS OTHER THAN THE SPEED OF THE, ESPECIALLY THE FIRST QUARTER CLOCK WHEN YOU WATCHED, UH, USC SAN JOSE STATE?
WELL, THE BIG TALKING POINT IS THE HEADLINE OF THE LA TIMES.
THE, THE COLUMN THAT BILL PLASCHKE WROTE.
I SAW THAT.
“USC WINS OPENER, BUT LINCOLN RILEY MUST FIX THE DAMN DEFENSE.”
THAT WAS, I THINK, THE BROADER TAKEAWAY AND WE COULD TALK ABOUT THAT IN A LITTLE BIT.
UM, BUT THE OFFENSE, LOOK, THE OFFENSE, WE CAN’T START A USC DISCUSSION WITHOUT TALKING
ABOUT THE OFFENSE.
CALEB WILLIAMS, FOUR TOUCHDOWN PASSES LOOKED FANTASTIC.
I’M A LITTLE WORRIED THAT HE WAS A LITTLE TOO HAPPY WITH THE HAPPY FEET.
HE DID A LOT OF THAT.
HE DID A LOT OF IT.
HE KNOWS WHAT HE CAN GET AWAY WITH.
YEAH.
YEAH.
AND I JUST FELT LIKE HE WAS PUSHING THE LIMITS THERE WITH SAN JOSE STATE.
AND I DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS AN OFFENSIVE LINE THING OR WHAT, WHAT IT WAS, BUT THE HAPPY
FEET, THE HAPPY FEET WERE A LITTLE TOO HAPPY FOR MY LIKING, BUT HE WAS GREAT.
HE WAS CALEB WILLIAMS.
WAS THE REIGNING HEISMAN CHAMPION.
ZACHARIAH BRANCH, THE TOP WIDE RECEIVER IN THE 2023 CLASS,
HAD A REALLY NICE CATCH AND RUN FOR HIS FIRST TOUCHDOWN
MIDWAY THROUGH THE THIRD QUARTER,
AND THEN RETURNED TO KICKOFF FOR ANOTHER TOUCHDOWN
LIKE FIVE MINUTES LATER.
AS OUR FRIEND SPENCER HALL POINTED OUT ON TWITTER,
HE WILL PROBABLY HAVE A BILLION YARDS
IN THIS OFFENSE THIS SEASON.
THERE IS NOT MUCH TO WORRY ABOUT WITH THE USC OFFENSE.
THE QUESTION, AND I GUESS THE BROADER TALKING POINT,
IS THE USC DEFENSE.
SAN JOSE STATE HAD 396 YARDS OF TOTAL OFFENSE.
EVERYONE, BILL PLASCHKE, RIGHT TO POINT OUT
THAT USC’S DEFENSE NEEDS TO BE BETTER.
IT IS WORTH MENTIONING THAT 154 OF THOSE YARDS
CAME IN GARBAGE TIME IN THE FOURTH QUARTER.
– RIGHT.
– SO I DON’T WANT TO JUMP TO THE CONCLUSION TOO SOON
THAT USC’S DEFENSE IS STILL NOT FIXED,
THAT ALEX GRINCH MAY NOT BE THE ANSWER
AS DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR.
I’M WILLING TO PUMP THE BRAKES A LITTLE BIT ON THAT.
BUT THAT BEING SAID, WHAT I SAW IN WEEK ZERO FROM USC
NEEDS TO GET BETTER IF THEY’RE GONNA PLAY TEAMS LIKE OREGON,
THEY’RE GONNA PLAY TEAMS LIKE UTAH,
THEY’RE GONNA PLAY TEAMS LIKE NOTRE DAME.
THAT WON’T SUFFICE WHEN WE GET DEEPER INTO THE SEASON.
SO THEY STILL DO NEED TO FIX IT.
I AGREE WITH THE OVERALL SENTIMENT.
I’M JUST NOT READY TO PUSH THE PANIC BUTTON QUITE YET.
– YEAH, AND AT FULL HEALTH,
OREGON AND UTAH’S QUARTERBACKS CAN MOVE AS WELL,
IF NOT BETTER THAN CHEVAN CORDEIRO,
HAS BEEN AROUND COLLEGE FOOTBALL FOR A LONG TIME. AND YOU KNOW, ANY ANYTIME YOU HAVE AN EXPERIENCED
TALENTED QUARTERBACK LIKE CHEVAN CORDEIRO, HE IS GOING TO MAKE PLAYS. SO AT THE TOP, CALEB WILLIAMS
IS TERRIFIC. I’M A I’M NOT WORRIED ABOUT HIS OFFENSIVE LINE. AND THIS FALLS UNDER THE BROADER
UMBRELLA OF YES, PAY ATTENTION TO A TEAM’S FIRST GAME ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL, BUT UNDERSTAND
THAT IT’S THE FIRST LIVE ACTION FOR EVERYBODY IN THEIR FIRST GAME. AND SO THINGS CAN BE CORRECTED.
PLAYERS CAN CALM DOWN. PLAYERS CAN GO BACK AND WATCH FILM OF THE LIVE ACTION. BE LIKE,
OH, THAT’S WHY I DIDN’T CONTAIN THAT LIKE THIRD AND 17 RUN FROM CHEVAN CORDEIRO THAT
EXTENDED TO DRIVE AND KILLED TIES PARLEY. SO YES, UNDER UNDER THAT UMBRELLA, THIS APPLIES
TO EVERYBODY IN THEIR FIRST MATCHUP. AND SO I’M NOT GOING TO BE OVERLY CRITICAL OF USC’S
DEFENSE TODAY, EVEN THOUGH YES, THEY DID GIVE UP, ESPECIALLY SOME SOME PLAYS DOWNFIELD IN
THE PASSING GAME.
IF YOU LOOK AT SOME OF THE TOUCHDOWNS AND LONGER PLAYS THAT SAN JOSE STATE WAS ABLE
TO CONNECT ON. IT WASN’T FOUR YARDS AT A TIME FOR THE SPARTANS. SO THAT I GUESS IS SOMEWHAT
OF A CONCERN THAT THERE WERE LANES THAT THERE WERE LEAKS THAT THERE WERE GUYS BEAT ON THE
OUTSIDE THAT THERE WERE SAFETIES WHO WERE LATE ROTATING. LOOK, THE HEADLINE TO ME WITH
USC IS CALEB WILLIAMS IS STILL AWESOME. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU SAW THAT LIKE BAD SNAP SITUATION
WHERE HE WAS ABLE TO RECOVER THE FUMBLE AND STILL BOMB IT DOWN THE FIELD FOR 45 OR WHATEVER.
I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU CAN PLANT YOUR BACK FOOT AND JUST WON’T MAKE THAT THROW. I’M THINKING
HOW IS HE GOING TO HAVE ENOUGH JUICE ON THAT BALL TO GET IT DOWN? HE DID IT ANYWAY. IT’S AMAZING.
THE ACTUAL NOVEL THING FROM THIS GAME TO ME IS WHAT YOU POINTED OUT AND WHAT SPENCER POINTED OUT
IS THAT ZACHARIAH BRANCH HAS A CEILING OF BEING HIM, RIGHT? HAS A CEILING OF BEING
DEANTHONY THOMAS, WHO IS NEARLY A TROJAN, PERCY HARVIN, TAVON AUSTIN, RIGHT? THAT TYPE OF LIKE,
OH, HE’S JOGGING AND EVERYBODY ELSE IS SPRINTING. THAT DOESN’T SEEM FAIR FOR EVERYBODY ELSE.
BOY, IT SURE MUST BE FUN TO ROOT FOR A GUY WEARING YOUR COLOR UNIFORM WHO CAN DO THAT.
THAT’S HIM RIGHT IN THE PUNT RETURN GAME AND THE KICKOFF RETURN GAME IN THE RECEIVING GAME,
RIGHT? YOU JUST DUMP THE BALL OFF TO ZACHARIAH BRANCH AND HE GOES FOR A 25 EASY YARD TOUCHDOWN.
THAT’S SPECIAL. THAT’S DIFFERENT USC FANS. YOU CANNOT BE EXCITED ENOUGH,
RIGHT? ABOUT THE FUTURE AND POTENTIAL OF ZACHARIAH. I WATCHED THE HIGHLIGHTS HERE.
REMINDED ME OF REGGIE BUSH. YEAH, LOOK, HE HAD THAT PLAY WHERE HE SORT OF RAN DOWN THE SIDELINE.
I DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS ON THE KICKOFF RETURN. I THINK IT WAS WHERE HE, YOU KNOW, WENT TO THE
SIDELINE AND THEN JUST SORT OF PAUSED AND CUT ACROSS AND REMAINED UNTOUCHED. AND I DON’T KNOW
IF IT WAS THE SAME SIDE WHERE REGGIE BUSH DID THAT AGAINST FRESNO STATE. BUT NOW ONCE YOU SEE
THAT IN A PLAYER, YOU’RE LIKE, WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT HIS CEILING IS, AND THAT IS ABSOLUTE GAME WRECKER.
HIS BIG CONCERN WILL BE, YOU KNOW, WHAT HAPPENS IF LINCOLN RILEY LEAVES BEFORE USC GOES TO THE
BIG TEN TO TAKE LIKE THE COWBOYS JOB OR SOMETHING, BUT THAT’S NEITHER HERE NOR THERE. NICE WIN FOR
FOR USC. DON’T GIVE UP THIRD AND 17 SCRAMBLES AND AGAIN KILLED THE PARLAY. THAT KILLED THE
PARLAY LATE, RIGHT? YOU GOT TO GET THAT CORRECTED BEFORE THE BIG BOYS IN THE PAC-12. SO THAT
WAS THAT WAS THE TAKEAWAY FOR ME THAT USC IS STILL GOING TO HAVE SIMILAR ISSUES, BUT
I AM STILL A BELIEVER THAT USC WITH WITH A COMBINATION OF EXECUTION AND COACHING CAN
ASCEND TO OKAY ON DEFENSE. I REALLY DO. I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING TO SAY THAT THE STORY
FOR YOU WAS AN 85% COMPLETION PERCENTAGE FOR YOUR GUY MILLER MOSS WHO GOT IN FINALLY GOT
SOME MILLER MOSS. YEAH, WHO I’VE HEARD BY THE WAY, BECAUSE HE’S SUPPOSEDLY A GOOD BACKUP
AND WAS A HIGHLY TOUTED GUY COMING OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL JUST LOVES GOING TO USC. GREAT.
I’M SURE IT’S A NICE EXPERIENCE.

TY.
– DAN.
– NOTRE DAME?
– OH, NOTRE DAME.
I GOT MAYBE THE MOST X-RATED TEXT FROM YOU
AS YOU WERE WATCHING THIS GAME.
NO, I WOULDN’T SAY X-RATED.
– I MEAN, THERE WERE NO PICTURES.
YOU MAKE IT SOUND REALLY X-RATED.
IT WAS JUST–
– IT WAS EXPLICIT.
– YEAH, EXPLICIT LANGUAGE.
– YOU WERE FEELING FAN AROUSAL
WATCHING NOTRE DAME’S OFFENSE.
– YEAH, I WAS.
I WAS.
42-3, NOTRE DAME.
NOTRE DAME HAD CENTER STAGE,
WHICH NOTRE DAME LOVES.
I MEAN, THAT’S NOTRE DAME, VERY MUCH NOTRE DAME.
– MARCHING THROUGH THE STREETS OF DUBLIN
WITH THE BAND, OF COURSE.
– NOTRE DAME HAD CENTER STAGE IN THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL WORLD
FOR A COUPLE HOURS BEFORE SOME OF THE OTHER GAMES
KICKED OFF.
THEIRS STARTED AT 2.30 EASTERN.
THEY WERE IN DUBLIN, IRELAND, AVIVA STADIUM,
SCORING OFF AGAINST NAVY.
THEY WON 42-3.
THE BIG TAKEAWAY FOR ME IS SAM HARTMAN
AND NOTRE DAME MAY BE A PERFECT MATCH.
AND IT WAS VERY INTERESTING TO SEE SAM HARTMAN IN AN OFFENSE THAT DIDN’T SOLELY RELY ON HIS ARM
WHICH I THINK WE’VE SEEN OVER THE LAST COUPLE YEARS IN HIS TIME AT WAKE FOREST. HE’S BEEN VERY GOOD
HE BROKE A TON OF PASSING RECORDS AND
THERE’S A REASON HE WAS THE NUMBER ONE TRANSFER QUARTERBACK OF THIS TRANSFER PORTAL CYCLE
LIKEWISE, IT WAS GREAT TO SEE THIS NOTRE DAME OFFENSE WITH AN ACTUAL THREAT OF A LEGITIMATE PASSING GAME, RIGHT?
IT WAS JUST SO CLEAR WITH THE WAY THAT THEY SCHEMED THIS THING,
THAT THEY HAD A LOT OF FAITH IN HIM TO RUN THE OFFENSE.
IT WAS VERY CLEAR HE WAS COMFORTABLE DOING IT.
I MADE THE COMMENT TO YOU THAT HE JUST FELT VERY CALM.
HE SEEMED CALM BACK THERE.
AND THAT ALSO WAS NEW IF YOU’VE BEEN WATCHING NOTRE DAME FOR A WHILE.
WE’VE HAD FRANTIC QUARTERBACKS FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS.
GUYS WHO TAKE THE SNAP AND THEY’RE SORT OF RUNNING AROUND,
HANGING ON FOR DEAR LIFE, TRYING TO FIND AN OPEN GUY.
IN SOME CASES, THEY CAN’T REACH HIM
‘CAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE THE ARM STRENGTH.
IN SOME CASES, IT’S A ONE-MAN ROUTE.
THAT WAS NOT THE CASE WITH SAM HARTMAN.
HE DIDN’T BREAK A SWEAT.
IT’S BEEN A WHILE, IT’S BEEN AN ETERNITY.
MAYBE FOREVER, MAYBE I’VE NEVER SEEN IT IN MY LIFETIME
AS A NOTRE DAME FAN.
– DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU SOUND LIKE RIGHT NOW?
– I DON’T CARE WHAT I SOUND LIKE.
– IF I CAN JUMP IN RIGHT NOW.
– I DON’T CARE.
– YOU SOUND LIKE SOMEBODY WHO JUST MET A SECOND WIFE.
YOU’RE LIKE, “I’M WITH THE QUARTERBACK NOW
WHO’S DOING THINGS I NEVER THOUGHT I’D BE INVOLVED WITH.”
– LISTEN, I WAS GETTING TEXTS.
I WAS GETTING STUFF FROM MAMA H COMMENTING ON THE BEAUTY OF SAM HARTMAN’S MANE LIKE MUFASA IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL FORM.
YOU JUST GOT OUT OF A TOXIC RELATIONSHIP.
BEST HAIR SINCE BOB DIACO. I DON’T THINK I’M GOING OUT ON A LIMB SAYING THAT.
THIS QUARTERBACK’S BLOWING MY MIND.
THIS IS ALL TO SAY THAT SAM HARTMAN LOOKED VERY GOOD. HE LOOKED VERY, VERY GOOD AS QUARTERBACK FOR NOTRE DAME.
I GET THAT IT WAS JUST NAVY, BUT I SHOULD ALSO MENTION THAT THERE WAS A LIKE A WHOLE LOT OF JUST PURPOSE
OUT THERE WITH THIS OFFENSE. THEY DIDN’T GO OUT THERE. THEY WEREN’T CONFUSED
I FELT LIKE THEY KNEW EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANTED TO DO WITH IT
WHICH IS WHY I WAS SO ENCOURAGED EVEN AGAINST AN OVERMATCHED OPPONENT TO GO OUT THERE
RIGHT TO FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE PURPOSE TO SEEM LIKE YOU’RE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE. THAT’S THAT’S A BIG DEAL
ESPECIALLY WITH A NEW QUARTERBACK
A LOT OF INSIDE ZONES, A LOT OF THE DUO RUNS
YEAH, NOTRE DAME HAS BEEN DOING NOW FOR THE LAST TWO SEASONS
AUDRIC ESTEME AN ABSOLUTE HOUSE AS A RUNNING BACK. NOTRE DAME’S VERY DEEP AT RUNNING BACK, WHICH I LIKE
WE DID GET TO SEE SOME WIDE RECEIVERS
MY GUY JADEN GREATHOUSE TRUE FRESHMAN OUT OF TEXAS HAD TWO TOUCHDOWNS IN HIS FIRST GAME
THE OFFENSE WAS VERY VERY ENCOURAGING THE DEFENSE DID AN AWESOME JOB
IT TOOK THEM LIKE TWO DRIVES TO KIND OF GET NAVY FIGURED OUT, BUT AFTER THAT THEY CLAMPED DOWN IN A REALLY BIG WAY
SO I AM OVER THE MOON. I’M OVER IN A WEEK WHERE WE TALKED ABOUT VERY LIMITED SLATE
I GET IT
BUT IN A WEEK WHERE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT FAVORITES BEING TWO AND FIVE AGAINST THE SPREAD
NOTRE DAME ABSOLUTELY BLEW THE DOORS OFF NAVY AND I I COULD NOT BE ANY MORE EXCITED ABOUT WHAT’S TO COME
I’M ARE YOU ARE YOU PROTECTING YOURSELF AT ALL?
PROTECTING MYSELF. WELL, LIKE YOU’RE JUST ALL IN RIGHT THE FAN AROUSAL LIKE THIS AS I MENTIONED LIKE BUT WHAT I’M SAYING IS LIKE
NAVY MIGHT BE REALLY BAD. AND SO I
YOU HAVE TO PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE RIGHT YOU HAVE TO DANCE LIKE NOBODY’S WATCHING. THIS IS THE JOY OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL
THIS IS I AGREE FOOTBALL BECAUSE IF NOTRE DAME IS AS EXCELLENT AS YOU
HOPE AND ARE ENVISIONING THEM TO BE THIS YEAR. YEAH, THAT’S WHAT THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE AGAINST A VERY BAD. THAT’S IT, RIGHT?
ISN’T THAT THE THING FOR WEEK ZERO?
ISN’T THAT THE THING FOR ALL OF THESE TOP TEAMS?
YES. TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS IS UNDERRATED.
TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS IS UNDERRATED.
THE ART OF THE BLOWOUT
FOR ME IS VERY UNDERRATED.
LIKE, JUST BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF A TEAM
YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BEAT AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT WEEK.
THEY SHOULD DO IT AGAIN THIS WEEK.
WERE THERE ANY SURPRISES TO YOU AS A NOTRE DAME HUMAN?
THAT LIKE, “OH, I WASN’T EXPECTING THIS PERSON TO STEP UP.”
OR, “OH, I WASN’T EXPECTING THE DEFENSE TO BE DOING THIS KIND OF THING.”
I KNOW IT’S NAVY SO YOU CAN’T REALLY APPRAISE A DEFENSE IN THE WAY THAT YOU CAN AGAINST MORE CONVENTIONAL OFFENSES
BUT WAS THERE ANYTHING THAT YOU’RE LIKE, OH, THAT’S IT
THAT’S AN INTERESTING THING THAT I COULD SEE BEING MORE INTERESTING AS THE SEASON PROGRESSES FOR NOTRE DAME
YEAH
I MEAN THERE WERE THERE WERE A LOT OF THINGS THAT I THINK FALL INTO THAT CATEGORY
THE ONE THING THAT REALLY JUMPED OUT TO ME AFTER WATCHING THE LAST COUPLE YEARS OF NOTRE DAME FOOTBALL
NOT A WHOLE LOT OF TIGHT END ACTION IN THIS GAME, RIGHT?
THEY WERE THROWING TO RECEIVERS, WHICH FELT DIFFERENT. IT REALLY FELT DIFFERENT TO THROW IT TO A WIDE MAN OR A SLOT MAN
AND NOT HAVE TO ZERO IN ON A GUY LIKE A MICHAEL MAYER
THIS WAS NOT A GAME DICTATED BY THE TIGHT ENDS. THIS WAS A GAME
DICTATED FIRST AND FOREMOST BY AUDRIC ESTIME
I THINK TO SET THE PACE AND THEN SECONDLY IN A VERY BIG WAY BY SAM HARTMAN WHO ONLY MISSED LIKE FOUR PASSES AT FOUR
TOUCHDOWNS. I MEAN HE WAS HE WAS LEGIT
SO IT’S JUST INTERESTING TO ME TO SEE SOME OF THESE NEW RECEIVERS AND SEE HOW THEY STEP UP
UM JADEN GREATHOUSE
I MENTIONED HIM AT THE TOP BUT GUYS LIKE DEION COLZIE EVEN CHRIS TYREE WHO’S NOW PLAYING IN THE SLOT A LITTLE BIT
RIGHT TO SEE HOW THEY USE HIM
UM, IT’D BE VERY INTERESTING. I DON’T WANT TO DRAW ON TOO MUCH ABOUT NOTRE DAME, BUT NOTRE DAME LOOKED REALLY REALLY SOLID IN WEEK ZERO
UH, YEAH, AND
125TH NAVY LAST YEAR IN TERMS OF PASSING EXPLOSIVE PASSES ALLOWED
SO THEIR PAST DEFENSE HAD A LOT TO BE DESIRED. SO, YOU KNOW, NOT GRAIN OF SALT, BUT IMPORTANT
CONTEXT THAT NAVY HAS A WAYS TO GO IN TERMS OF DEFENDING THE PAST. THE OTHER THING THAT
STOOD OUT TO ME ABOUT NOTRE DAME WILL MOVE ON IS I THINK IT WAS A JADEN GREATHOUSE TOUCHDOWN CATCH.
SAM HARTMAN THREW IT TO A PLACE THAT HE KNEW JADEN GREATHOUSE WOULD BE STREAKING UP THE SEAM OR THE
SIDELINE. I FORGET EXACTLY WHERE ON THE FIELD IT WAS. AND THAT IS THE MARK OF A 14TH YEAR QUARTERBACK.
IT IS THE MARK. THAT’S AND YOU KNOW WHAT? THAT’S SOMETHING OUR FRIEND PETE SAMSON FROM THE ATHLETIC
HAS REPORTED ALL THROUGHOUT SPRING CAMP, ALL THROUGHOUT THE BUILD-UP TO THIS SEASON.
ANTICIPATION.
THAT’S A KEY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHERE NOTRE DAME’S BEEN AT QUARTERBACK AND WHERE THEY
WILL BE THIS YEAR WITH HARTMAN.
HE JUST, HE KNOWS HOW TO THROW GUYS OPEN.
AND THAT MAKES RECEIVERS BETTER.
HE MISSED A FEW, YOU KNOW, I MEAN, HE HAD TOBIAS MERRIWEATHER OPEN AND HE DIDN’T QUITE
PUT ENOUGH JUICE ON THE BALL IN THE BACK OF THE END ZONE.
THAT STUFF WILL GET SORTED OUT, I THINK, IN DUE COURSE.
BUT BY AND LARGE, KNOWING WHERE PEOPLE ARE ON THE FIELD, THAT SENSE OF PLACE HAS REALLY
BEEN LACKING FROM NOTRE DAME.
AND IT WAS GREAT TO SEE IT.
SO I’M EXCITED.
I CAN’T HELP IT.
I CAN’T HELP IT.
DOES THIS CHANGE YOUR EXPECTATION FOR CLEMSON, USC, ANYTHING LIKE THAT?
OR, WELL, BECAUSE YOU KIND OF WENT INTO THE SEASON EXPECTING SAM HARTMAN TO BE A REVELATION.
SO I THINK IT’S PROBABLY AROUND WHERE YOU WERE.
IT’S JUST DIFFERENT TO SEE IT.
YEAH, TOTALLY.
IT’S DIFFERENT TO SEE IT, TO FEEL IT THE WAY THAT I DID.
I MEAN, IT GAVE ME THE VAPORS, LET’S BE HONEST.
CAN I TELL YOU SOMETHING?
SPEAKING OF GOOD QUARTERBACK PLAY, I LIKED BOTH AJ SWANN AND BRADEN SCHAGER.
I WANTED TO, OKAY, SO LET’S GO TO THE VANDY GAME.
YOU MENTIONED THAT IT WAS KIND OF FUN.
WE HAD A BIT OF A SLOW MOTION BACKDOOR COVER.
BECAUSE VANDY WAS UP 21 AT THE START OF THE FOURTH QUARTER.
THEY ALLOWED 14 UNANSWERED ONLY TO WIN BY 7.
SO A BIT OF A CLUNKER IN THAT SENSE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAD VANDY MINUS 16 AND A HALF LIKE
SOME OF US.
BY THE WAY, I WENT 0 FOR 4 ON ALL MY TY VS. THE WORLD PICKS AGAIN.
THE TREND, THE HORRIBLE TREND FROM LAST SEASON, BUT WE WILL GET THAT STRAIGHTENED AWAY IN DUE
TIME. THIS GAME WAS DELAYED FOR AN HOUR AND 40 MINUTES DUE TO LIGHTNING. YEAH. I THINK THE BIG
STORY FOR ME, OBVIOUSLY, VANDY WON. THIS WAS A MUST WIN FOR VANDY. I THINK WE’RE BOTH PRETTY
KEEN ON VANDY OVER THREE AND A HALF. CAN’T MAKE THAT BET ANYMORE, BUT THIS IS A MUST WIN FOR THEM
IN THAT SENSE. YOU HAVE THEM IN A BOWL GAME, SO DOUBLY A MUST WIN. I KNOW THAT WAS TOUGH.
IT WAS A TOUGH WATCH FOR MY PREDICTION, MY BOLD PREDICTION. CONTINUE.
THE BIG STORY FOR ME THOUGH WAS HOW MUCH BETTER HAWAII LOOKED.
YES.
THEY LOST THIS GAME BY 53 AT HOME LAST SEASON.
AND IF YOU WATCH ANY OF THE HIGHLIGHTS, EVEN IF YOU JUST LOOK AT THE DAMN BOX SCORE,
IT WAS APPARENT THAT TIMMY CHANG HAS DONE SOME WORK WITH THIS TEAM.
AND SO THEY WERE NOT A DISASTER LIKE THEY WERE A YEAR AGO.
THIS SEEMED LIKE A TEAM THAT, AGAIN, I USE THAT WORD AGAIN, PURPOSE.
IT SEEMED AS IF THEY WERE MUCH MORE TOGETHER THAN THEY WERE A YEAR AGO.
AND I THINK YOU’RE RIGHT TO POINT OUT THE QUARTERBACK THING. THEY DID LOOK PRETTY GOOD.
SO, OKAY, BRADEN SCHAGER, IT’S NOT SCHRAGER, IT’S SCHAGER LOOKED STRONG. I LIKE, LOOK, HE’S,
HE’S THAT OLD FASHIONED HAWAII GUNSLINGER TYPE QUARTERBACK, RIGHT? I THOUGHT AJ SWANN LOOKS
STRONG. I THINK VANDY HAD LIKE A HUNDRED YARD KICKOFF RETURN. SO THE VANDY OFFENSE ONLY SCORED
28 AGAINST THIS HAWAII TEAM, WHICH IS ANOTHER FEATHER IN HAWAII’S CAP. IF THIS GAME’S PLAYED
PLAYED 10 TIMES. I THINK THEY PROBABLY SPLIT IT FIVE OUT OF FIVE OR FIVE AND FIVE JUST
BECAUSE OF THE IT WAS I THINK A AN END ZONE FADE INTERCEPTION THAT BRADEN SCHAGER THROUGH.
SO HAWAII WAS FIGHTING. I THINK THEY OUT GAINED VANDY BY LIKE A HUNDRED YARDS. IT WAS WORRISOME
AS SOMEBODY WHO PICKED VANDY TO MAKE A BALL GAME, BUT I’M STICKING WITH IT. I’M NOT ABANDONING
THE DOORS. I ALSO ENJOYED THE CONSTRUCTION IN ONE OF THE END ZONES. I SAW ALL THE DID
DO YOU SEE SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS?
THEY WERE SHOWING THE TEMPORARY SCOREBOARD
FLOATING IN THE BREEZE AS IT WAS HELD UP BY A CRANE.
– YES.
– DOES NOT SEEM SAFE.
I KNOW OUR FRIEND ROGER SHERMAN
IS DOING THE GRAND ROAD TRIP THIS SEASON.
– ROAD RAJ.
– ROAD RODGE, GO AND CHECK HIM OUT.
– R-O-D-G-E-R ON TWITTER, YEAH.
– YEAH, SEND HIM SOME LOVE.
HE’S GONNA BE TRAVELING THE GREAT COUNTRY,
WATCHING ALL SORTS OF GREAT COLLEGE FOOTBALL.
HE WAS TWEETING AND POSTING PICTURES
OF THE ACTIVE CONSTRUCTION ZONE
THAT IS THE VANDERBILT STADIUM RIGHT NOW.
BY THE WAY, DREAM SITUATION TO BRING A THREE-YEAR-OLD.
IF YOU’RE GOING TO BRING A THREE-YEAR-OLD TO A FOOTBALL
GAME IN NASHVILLE, MAY I SUGGEST NOT TRAVELING ANYWHERE ELSE
AND JUST SHOWING YOUR TODDLER, YOUR LITTLE KID, A BUNCH OF
TRACTORS WHILE YOU WATCH FOOTBALL.
EVEN IF VANDY’S GETTING BLOWN OUT.
THAT’S A NICE LITTLE ONE TOO.
YEAH, I DON’T THINK I HAVE ANY OTHER TAKEAWAYS OTHER THAN
VANDY’S DEFENSE PROBABLY HAS A WAYS TO GO AND I THINK HAWAII
IS GOING TO BE EXTRAORDINARILY FUN THIS YEAR BECAUSE THEY’RE
JUST GOING TO WING IT AROUND AND
BRADEN SCHAGER.
I DON’T THINK HE HAS A POP GUN ARM
LIKE YOUR BRYANT MONIZ.
I I’M READY FOR FUN
HAWAII FOOTBALL.
IT’S BEEN A MINUTE.
IT HAS BEEN A MINUTE.
IT HAS BEEN A MINUTE
GOING TO GET TO SOME OTHER GAMES.

IF YOU WANT TO WHAT YOU THOUGHT OF WEEK
ZERO.
WE’RE GOING TO BE DOING A LIVE STREAM
ON WEDNESDAY AT NOON,
OUT ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL,
WHICH YOU CAN WATCH AND FOLLOW ALONG WITH.
WE’RE ALSO GOING TO BE GOING LIVE
ON SATURDAY NIGHT AT MIDNIGHT.
AFTER.
[GASP]
AFTER.
THANK YOU, DAN.
SATURDAY NIGHT, TY?
SATURDAY NIGHT TY, BABY.
AFTER MOST OF THE GAMES, LET’S SAY.
MOST OF THE GAMES.
I THINK UCLA WILL STILL BE IN THE PROCESS OF,
I’M ASSUMING BEATING COASTAL CAROLINA,
AND THERE’S AN OREGON STATE GAME LATE ON SATURDAY NIGHT.
WE’VE GOT GAMES ON SUNDAY.
WE’VE ALSO GOT GAMES ON MONDAY.
SO I THINK NORMALLY WE’LL BE ABLE TO COVER MOST OF,
IF NOT ALL OF THE GAMES IN A GIVEN WEEK,
BUT IT IS WEEK ONE.
IT’S A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT FOR GOOD REASON.
– ABSOLUTELY.
– SAN DIEGO STATE 20, OHIO 13.
THE BIG STORY IN THIS ONE WAS THE, THE, THE
“ROURKENING” AS I CALLED IT.
– THE ROURKENING, YEAH.
THE MARKETING WENT A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENTLY THAN EXPECTED
BECAUSE KURTIS ROURKE GOT KNOCKED OUT OF THIS ONE AT THE END OF THE FIRST QUARTER
IT’S CLEAR THAT WHEN HE’S IN THERE, HE’S GOT REAL NFL POTENTIAL. I MEAN, YEAH BALL JUST COMES OUT OF HIS HAND
EFFORTLESSLY AND HE’S A BIG KID
HE DEFINITELY HAS THE BUILD WHEN HE IS RUNNING THAT OFFENSE IT IS CLEARLY AT A
DIFFERENT LEVEL THAN IT ENDED UP BEING HERE WITH CJ HARRIS THE BACKUP WHO CAME IN AND WENT LIKE
18 OF 41 OR SOMETHING OF THAT NATURE THREE. YEAH, IT WASN’T GREAT THREE PICKS FOR HIM
UM
KURTIS ROURKE KIND OF GOT LIKE
I DON’T KNOW BENT IN HALF. IT WAS A VERY VERY WEIRD WAY THAT HE TOOK A HIT FROM A DEFENDER
HE APPARENTLY WANTED TO GO BACK IN THE GAME. IT SEEMS LIKE HE’S FINE
THEY WERE GONNA DO SOME PRECAUTIONARY X-RAYS. IT SOUNDS LIKE HE WAS PISSED AT THE COACHING STAFF. THEY WOULDN’T PUT HIM BACK. YEAH
SAW THAT UM, HE IS RECOVERING FROM AN ACL INJURY. WE TALKED ABOUT IT ON THE LAST EPISODE
HE CAME BACK VERY VERY QUICKLY FROM THAT INJURY
UH, SO THEY WERE NOT GOING TO TAKE ANY CHANCES, ESPECIALLY WITH A NON-CONFERENCE GAME SUCH AS THIS SO HE GOT KNOCKED OUT EARLY
IT WAS CJ HARRIS THE REST OF THE WAY
UM
I’M, NOT CRAZY ABOUT SAN DIEGO STATE’S OFFENSE. THEY ONLY SCORED 20 POINTS
SO PERHAPS THAT FURTHER UNDERSCORES THE POINT THE HIGHLIGHT OF THIS ONE FOR ME REALLY WAS I WANT TO SAY IN THE FIRST QUARTER
JALEN MAYDEN BEING CHASED BY DEFENDERS,
TRIES TO ROLL A LITTLE BIT TO HIS LEFT.
HE’S A SOUTHPAW.
– YEAH. – AND TRIES TO THROW IT AWAY,
ENDS UP THROWING IT RIGHT IN THE FACE OF A REFEREE.
– DID YOU SEE? – SAW THAT.
DID YOU SEE THAT PLAY?
IT’S A BAD DAY AT THE OFFICE. YEP.
BUT OTHER THAN THAT, IT WAS MOSTLY A DEFENSIVE SLUGFEST.
EVEN STILL, WITHOUT ROURKE,
OHIO HAD OPPORTUNITIES TO COME BACK AND MAKE THIS A GAME,
BUT THEY COULDN’T DO IT.
YEAH, I WOULD SAY, I FORGET IF I CALL IT A WIN-LOSS
FOR A LOSS-WIN.
LIKE, IT’S BETTER TO WIN THAN LOSE.
THIS IS SAN DIEGO STATE WINNING A GREAT CLUNKER TO OPEN THE SEASON BECAUSE IF YOU TURN ANOTHER
TEAM OVER THREE TIMES AND ONLY GIVE UP ONE YOURSELF AND YOU’RE FACING A BACKUP QUARTERBACK
WHO’S NOT TERRIBLY EFFECTIVE AND YOU HANG ON TO WIN AT HOME, NOT IDEAL DOESN’T DOESN’T
SORT OF PORTEND GREAT THINGS FOR FOR THE AZTECS.
BUT AGAIN, IT’S THEIR FIRST GAME OF THE SEASON.
LOT TO CORRECT.
WE’LL SEE JACKSONVILLE STATE.
WELCOME TO FBS.
JACKSONVILLE STATE WINS 17-14 OVER UTEP.
UTEP ACTUALLY OUTGAINED JACKSONVILLE STATE,
THE GAMECOCKS OF JACKSONVILLE STATE.
BY ABOUT 100 YARDS, THEY HAD NINE MORE MINUTES OF POSSESSION
BUT THEY TURNED IT OVER THREE TIMES,
THEY WERE JUST THREE OF 12 ON THIRD DOWNS
AND THAT’LL GET YA, ESPECIALLY IN A CLOSE GAME.
IT’S ACTUALLY SORT OF SIMILAR TO WHAT WE SAW HAPPEN
IN THE UMASS GAME.
SO UMASS KNOCKED OFF NEW MEXICO STATE 41 TO 30.
IT WAS A BIG GAME FOR TAISUN PHOMMACHANH.
REMEMBER HIM?
– YEAH, OF COURSE.
I THINK IT’S WHAT, CLEMSON TO GEORGIA TECH TO UMASS?
– THAT’S RIGHT.
THAT’S RIGHT.
SO A TWO-TIME TRANSFER.
IT’S ANOTHER SITUATION WHERE WE HAVE ONE OF THESE GUYS
FINALLY GETTING THE REINS OF STARTING QUARTERBACK.
YOU LOOK PRETTY GOOD.
IT’S APPARENT THEY’RE GONNA LET HIM RUN AT UMASS.
UMASS WAS OUT GAINED BY 100 YARDS,
BUT AGAIN, FORCED THE THREE TURNOVERS.
AND THAT IS, I THINK, ULTIMATELY WHAT FELLED
NEW MEXICO STATE, THE PLAY OF THE DAY IN THIS ONE,
NOT THE JALEN MAYDEN PLAY FROM SAN DIEGO STATE,
BUT THIS WAS THE ONE WHERE DIEGO PAVIA,
THE QUARTERBACK FOR NEW MEXICO STATE,
EVADING A PASS RUSH, ROLLS A LITTLE BIT TO HIS RIGHT.
HE GETS THE VERY VICIOUS FACE MASK
THAT SPINS HIS HELMET AROUND 180 DEGREES
WHILE THE PLAY IS STILL LIVE.
AND SO HE IS OUT THERE LITERALLY
LIKE A CHICKEN WITH HIS HEAD CUT OFF,
SORT OF, LIKE, DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO
AND HAD THE WHEREWITHAL TO JUST CHUCK THE BALL
BEYOND THE END ZONE AND WAS ABLE TO GET OUT OF THAT PLAY
WITHOUT GETTING DRILLED.
BUT ONE OF THOSE DEALS WHERE IT WAS ACTUALLY
COULD HAVE BEEN VERY, VERY SCARY
‘CAUSE HE JUST COULD NOT SEE
AS THE HELMET SPUN AROUND IN HIS FACE.
– BIG DEAL WHEN UMASS WINS A FOOTBALL GAME.
THEY WERE, I THINK, THE WORST TEAM IN FBS FOOTBALL LAST YEAR
TO OPEN THE SEASON UP WITH A WIN.
AND I ALWAYS HAVE A SOFT SPOT FOR UMASS
BECAUSE I JUST REMEMBER AS LIKE A 12 YEAR OLD LOVING UMASS
BASKETBALL. MARCUS CAMBY.
WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT CARMELO TRAVIOSO?
IS THAT HIS NAME?
TRAVIOSO? EDGAR PADILLA?
DID I JUST PULL AN EDGAR PADILLA?
I YEAH, SO LOOK AND IT’S DON BROWN.
HE’S BEEN, HE’S BEEN AROUND FOREVER.
WE LIKE THAT.
I’M HAPPY TO SEE A TEAM THAT’S BEEN DOWN FOR SO LONG, OPEN THE
SEASON UP IN A POSITIVE WAY.
OUR FRIENDS OVER AT THE SICKOS COMMITTEE MADE A GRAPHIC THAT
THAT THEY POSTED TITLED THE UMASS CHOWDER BOWL.
– OKAY.
– AND SO THEY’VE GOT A BOWL OF CHOWDER
AND THEN IN THE BOWL OF CHOWDER,
THEY’VE GOT A NEW MEXICO STATE LOGO
AND THEY’VE GOT IT TAGGED WITH,
DOES UMASS HAVE A BOWL GAME COOKING THIS SEASON?
THEY’VE ALREADY GOT ONE IN THE POT.
IF THEY’RE GONNA DO THIS THING EVERY WEEK
WHERE THEY’RE ADDING A LOGO.
– I LOVE THIS.
– I LOVE THIS IDEA.
I DON’T KNOW HOW MANY LOGOS
THEY’RE GONNA HAVE A CHANCE TO ADD
BECAUSE UMASS IS OVER UNDER IS LIKE THREE,
BUT, I LIKE THE CONCEPT.
KUDOS TO THE SICKOS COMMITTEE.
– THE NUMBER 131 SP+ TEAM FROM LAST SEASON.
THE WORST OFFENSE IN AMERICA LAST YEAR
IN TERMS OF POINTS PER DRIVE,
BUT THEY WERE OKAY ON DEFENSE,
ONLY A HUNDREDTH IN POINTS PER DRIVE LAST YEAR.
SO, GET THAT CHOWDER GOING.
YOU LIKE CHOWDER, TY?
I ENJOY CHOWDER.
– SURE, WHY NOT?
WHY NOT?
GET IT GOING IN THE CROCK POT, WE’LL SEE.
– YEAH.
– FINAL GAME HERE TO DISCUSS,
UNLESS YOU’VE GOT ANY BURNING UTEP OR JACKSONVILLE STATE.
– NO, NO, NO.
WE GOT LOUISIANA TECH-FIU.
– YEAH, FIU WAS UP 17-3 AT THE BEGINNING
OF THE SECOND QUARTER AND THEY CHOKED IT AWAY.
– YEP.
– THAT’S BECAUSE DAN, GUESS WHO’S BACK?
– HAMMERIN’ HANK BACHMEIER.
– GUESS WHO’S BACH?
HANK BACHMEIER.
HE HAD THAT BULLDOG IN HIM.
LEADING THE COMEBACK 33 OF 44,
333 YARDS PASSING A LONG TOUCHDOWN TO SMOKE HARRIS WHO MIGHT HAVE THE BEST NAME IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL THIS YEAR
YEAH, SMOKE HARRIS HAD 11 RECEPTIONS FOR 155 YARDS MIGHT BE A LITTLE EARLY FOR DOODLE ALERTS HERE, BUT
22 TO 17 IS YOUR FINAL AS LOUISIANA TECH COMES FROM BEHIND
WHEN IT NEARLY AT THE GUN TO GET ON THE BOARD AVENGE THE LOSS FROM A YEAR AGO AND FIU WON BIT OF A SHOOTOUT
MM-HMM. NO GREAT WIN TO START THE SEASON FOR LOUISIANA TECH, SONNY CUMBIE, HANK BACHMEIER, BROTHER OF BEAR LION TIGER ORCA
KANGAROO, WHATEVER HIS BROTHER’S NAMES ARE
KANGAROO BACHMEIER. ARE YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH HIS WORK?
YEAH, REALLY NICE SOLID WIN COMEBACK WIN
WHAT’S WRONG? WHAT’S WRONG? TY? WHAT DID I SAY? THAT’S SO WE HAVE THE ANIMAL KINGDOM. YEAH
YEAH, FIU DID A REALLY NICE JOB PUSHING AROUND LOUISIANA TECH. THEY RAN ALL OVER HIM, BUT IT’S YOU KNOW
HE COULDN’T MOVE THE BALL AT ALL THROUGH THE AIR
IT WASN’T LIKE SOME COMICALLY LOW NUMBER FOR GRAYSON JAMES THE FIU QUARTERBACK. I’M NOT HERE TO PICK ON ANYBODY
IT WAS A DOWN DAY. HE HAD FOUR YARDS PASSING
FIVE COMPLETIONS FOUR YARDS PASSING THAT IS AN AVERAGE OF 0.8 YARDS PER COMPLETION. YEAH, IT’S A TOUGH WAY TO WIN A GAME
SO YEAH, I DON’T KNOW GOOD FOR LOUISIANA TECH WINS ARE BETTER THAN LOSSES
WINS ARE BETTER THAN LOSSES THAT DOES IT FOR WEEK ZERO AGAIN ONLY SEVEN GAMES OF NOTE
SOME OF THESE TEAMS WILL BE IN ACTION AGAIN THIS WEEK AND WE’LL GET TO THAT ON THE WEEK ONE PREVIEW AGAIN
GOING OUT. IT’S YOUTUBE.COM/@SOLIDVERBAL
THAT’S WHERE YOU CAN FIND THE YOUTUBE CHANNEL. WE WILL BE GOING LIVE WITH OUR PICKS
EVERY WEDNESDAY AT NOON EASTERN 11 CENTRAL 10 MOUNTAIN 9 PACIFIC
SIX FOR OUR GOOD FRIENDS ON THE ISLANDS IN HAWAII.

I DON’T HAVE THE MATH TO DO THAT AT THE SAME TIME.
BUT YES, 12 EASTERN, OUR PICKS,
OUR WEEKLY PICKS SHOW LIVE,
YOUTUBE.COM/@SOLIDVERBAL.
SUBSCRIBE, HIT THE BELL.
– AND THEN OF COURSE, SATURDAY NIGHT,
AS WE SAID AT THE TOP, WE’LL BE DOING THE RECAP.
(LAUGHING)
– OKAY, I WON’T PLAY THE WHOLE THING AGAIN.
– DON’T OVERDO IT, WE GOTTA SAVE THAT.
– I UNDERSTAND, SATURDAY NIGHT TIE.
– MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW ALONG ON SOCIAL MEDIA.
WE’LL BE POSTING ALL OF THOSE LINKS OUT THERE AS WELL,
WHETHER YOU’RE ON TWITTER OR X.
WE DID DO A LITTLE BIT OF ZEETING THIS SATURDAY.
I DID, YEAH.
YOU WEREN’T AROUND, YOU WERE DOING THE PIZZA FEST THING.
– IN PUBLIC YOU WERE ZEETING.
– I WAS ZEETING, YEAH.
– OKAY.
– TO CLOSE OUT THIS EPISODE,
I DID WANT TO GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO THE VERBALLER COMMUNITY.
AGAIN, VERBALLERS.COM IS WHERE YOU CAN GO
AND CHECK THAT OUT.
I DIDN’T MENTION THE GREAT COMMUNITY THAT WE HAVE
AND HOW WE’RE GOING TO BE DOING WATCH-ALONGS
AND THINGS OF THAT ILK THIS COMING SEASON.
SALLY, OUR GOOD FRIEND OUT ON DISCORD,
HAS THIS ODD HABIT OF PUTTING TOGETHER A COMPOSITE POLL
EVERY YEAR.
WHAT I’VE GOT IN FRONT OF ME IS THE COMPOSITE TOP 30.
BASICALLY TOOK ALL OF THE POLLS FROM EVERYONE OVER AT THE,
I DON’T KNOW, THE ATHLETIC TO ATHLON TO CBS, AP TOP 25,
YOU NAME IT.
HERE’S WHAT WE GOT.
I WANT YOU TO TELL ME,
AS I READ THROUGH THIS TOP 25 VERY QUICKLY,
WHO’S TOO HIGH AND WHO’S TOO LOW.
– WE’LL GO THROUGH A TOP 10, TOP 12, TOP 15,
WHATEVER YOU WANT, TY.
– HERE’S ONE THROUGH 10, ALL RIGHT?
GEORGIA, MICHIGAN, OHIO STATE, ALABAMA, PENN STATE AT FIVE.
LSU AT SIX, TENNESSEE AT SEVEN, CLEMSON AT EIGHT,
TEXAS AT NINE, USC AT 10.
– OKAY.
– WHO’S TOO HIGH, WHO’S TOO LOW?
I’D MOVE USC MAYBE UP A LITTLE BIT.
I’D CERTAINLY MOVE USC AHEAD OF TEXAS AND TENNESSEE
IN THIS MOMENT, WOULDN’T YOU?
– I THINK TENNESSEE AT SEVEN’S A LITTLE HIGH.
– I THINK TENNESSEE AT SEVEN’S A LITTLE BIT HIGH.
I DON’T, AGAIN, I SAID THAT PENN STATE
WOULD LIKELY BE MY TEAM THAT HAS NEVER MADE THE PLAYOFF,
THAT I LIKE THEM TO MAKE THE PLAYOFF.
IF EVERYBODY KIND OF HITS APPROXIMATELY
THEIR EXPECTED CEILING, PENN STATE IS A VERY GOOD TEAM
OR A VERY GOOD OPTION FOR ME
TO BE THAT FIRST-TIME PLAYOFF TEAM.
SO I DON’T HATE THEM THAT HIGH, BUT IT DOES, YOU KNOW,
WHEN YOU SEE IT, YOU’RE LIKE, “OH, WOW.”
– THAT HITS A LITTLE DIFFERENT FOR ME.
FIVE IS TOO HIGH FOR PENN STATE.
THEY COULD GET TO A TOP FIVE CALIBER TEAM.
IT’S VERY POSSIBLE,
BUT I WOULD BE INCLINED TO PUT THEM BELOW LSU.
– YEAH.
– I’D BE INCLINED TO PUT THEM BELOW TEXAS.
I’D BE INCLINED TO PUT THEM BELOW CLEMSON,
CERTAINLY BELOW USC AT THIS POINT.
I THINK PENN STATE WOULD BE VERY, VERY GOOD,
BUT WITH SUCH A BIG UNKNOWN AT QUARTERBACK,
AND I’M IN ON DREW ALLAR, DON’T GET ME WRONG.
BUT WE GOTTA SEE SOMETHING OUT THERE.
MAYBE AFTER WEEK ONE I’LL FEEL DIFFERENTLY.
OKAY, IF THEY GO OUT THERE AND DESTROY WEST VIRGINIA,
IF HE THROWS FOR 280 YARDS
AND DOESN’T COMMIT ANY BONEHEAD MISTAKES,
MAYBE I’LL FEEL DIFFERENTLY.
BUT TO START, FIVE IS REALLY HIGH.
THAT’S REALLY HIGH, MAN.
– IT’S STRIKING THAT
THREE OF, OR EXCUSE ME, FOUR OF THE TOP FIVE
IN THIS POLL, AND IN A LOT OF POLLS
AND COMBINATIONS THEREOF HAVE NEW QUARTERBACKS, RIGHT? GEORGIA, OHIO STATE, ALABAMA, PENN STATE.
AND SO WHILE IT KIND OF MAKES SENSE TO LOOK AT THE TOP THAT IT FEELS LIKE THERE’S ALSO POTENTIAL
FOR A LOT OF VOLATILITY GIVEN NEW QUARTERBACK PLAY. AND THEN OF COURSE, TENNESSEE NEW QUARTERBACK,
CLEMSON NEW FULL-TIME STARTING QUARTERBACK. AND THEN OF COURSE, TEXAS HAS A RETURNER AND USC
CERTAINLY HAS A RETURNER AND YOU GET OUTSIDE OF THE TOP 10 TIE. LIKE I THINK I’D HAVE FLORIDA
STATE IN THE TOP 10 AND THEY’RE OUTSIDE THERE.
THAT WAS THAT WAS GOING TO BE MY NEXT QUESTION.
SO AS WE GO OUTSIDE THE TOP 10, WE’VE GOT UTAH AT 11 FLORIDA
STATE AT 12 OREGON NOTRE DAME IN WASHINGTON TO ROUND OUT THE
TOP 15 OF THOSE TEAMS.
I THINK WE AGREE THAT FLORIDA STATE’S PROBABLY A TOP 10 TEAM.
YEAH, THEY FEEL TOO LOW.
ARE THERE ANY OTHERS IN THAT GROUPING THAT YOU’D BE INCLINED
TO PUT IN YOUR TOP 10?
YEAH, OTHER THAN FLORIDA STATE, I DIP UTAH DOWN.
I’M HIGH ON OREGON AT THE MOMENT, AND THEN I READ A NEW PIECE.
I THINK IT WAS BRIAN HAMILTON AT THE ATHLETIC WROTE A FEATURE ABOUT BO NIX,
AND HE JUST SEEMS LIKE HE’S 28 AND LIKE EVEN HIGHER ON OREGON THAN I WAS BEFORE.
BUT OFFENSE IS NOT GOING TO BE THE ISSUE FOR THE DUCKS, BUT I’D HAVE THEM
MAYBE A LITTLE BIT HIGHER AT 13, PROBABLY IN LIKE THE NINE OR 10 AREA RIGHT NOW.
I’D HAVE A WASHINGTON A LITTLE BIT HIGHER IN THE 12 OR 13 AREA.
AND I YEAH, I DIP TEXAS AND I DIP UTAH, MAYBE DIP TENNESSEE, THOUGH.
I AM PRETTY HIGH ON TENNESSEE JUST BECAUSE I THINK THAT JOE MILTON AND THAT SYSTEM IS
SORT OF A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN AND I ANTICIPATE HOPEFULLY THE BACK END OF THAT DEFENSE BEING
A LITTLE BIT MORE CONSISTENT NOW THAT THERE SHOULD BE HEALTHIER THIS SEASON BUT THAT’S
SORT OF WAIT AND SEE FOR ME AT THE MOMENT BUT WITH HOW THEY STARTED OUT LAST YEAR I
THINK YOU GIVE THEM AT LEAST A CHUNKY BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT AS BEING TOP 10 TOP 12.
WHAT WE SAW FROM NOTRE DAME WAS BETTER THAN THE 14TH BEST TEAM IN THE COUNTRY.
WE SAW FROM MAYBE AGAIN, I REALIZED IT WAS NAVY, BUT THE WAY THAT THEY PLAYED IN THAT
GAME, THE WAY THAT THE DEFENSE PLAYED, ESPECIALLY THAT WAS THAT WAS BETTER THAN TOP 14. THEY
SHOULD BE THEY SHOULD BE TOP 10 WITH THAT TYPE OF PERFORMANCE. OKAY, BUT DO YOU SEE
ANY OF THESE TEAMS AHEAD OF NOTRE DAME ON THIS OREGON, FLORIDA STATE, UTAH, USC, TEXAS,
CLEMSON, TENNESSEE, LSU, PENN STATE, ALABAMA, OHIO STATE, MICHIGAN, GEORGIA. DO YOU SEE
ANY OF THEM NOT DOING THAT AGAINST NAVY? LIKE, DO YOU LOOK AT ANY OF THOSE TEAMS AND SAYING,
I DON’T KNOW, THEY MIGHT HAVE REALLY STRUGGLED TO GET GOING ACROSS THE OCEAN AT AVIVA STADIUM.
THAT’S THE ISSUE TO ME. LIKE, THAT’S FAIR. I THINK A LOT OF THESE TEAMS, I DON’T HAVE
A GREAT WAY TO TALK TO THAT, DAN. I’M STILL RIDING HIGH. NO, I UNDERSTAND TAKING CARE
LIKE NOTRE DAME DID IT RIGHT THAT I’M USING A HYPOTHETICAL ARGUMENT. SO NOTRE DAME CERTAINLY
HAS THE POTENTIAL, ESPECIALLY IF NAVY’S OKAY THIS YEAR,
THAT’LL BE A NICER WIN THAN WE KNOW AT THE MOMENT.
BUT YEAH, I THINK WHAT NOTRE DAME SHOWED
AND WITH WHAT SAM HARTMAN HAS A TRACK RECORD OF SHOWING
AS A HIGH LEVEL COLLEGE FOOTBALL QUARTERBACK,
YEAH, NOTRE DAME ABSOLUTELY HAS THE TOP 10 CEILING.
– HE COULD THROW FIVE PICKS AGAINST CLEMSON.
THAT’S NOT BEYOND THE REALM OF POSSIBILITIES.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THE OFFENSE IS THAT THEY DON’T NEED HIM
TO GO OUT THERE AND THROW IT THAT MUCH.
I THINK THEY’VE GOT ENOUGH OF A COMPLIMENTARY GROUND GAME
THAT THIS WILL BE VERY, VERY BALANCED.
BUT ALAS, HE’S GOT THAT IN AND WE’VE SEEN IT.
HERE ARE THE REMAINING 10 TEAMS IN THIS COMPOSITE POLL.
AGAIN, PUT TOGETHER OUT IN OUR VERBALLERS.COM COMMUNITY
BY SALLY, WHO’S VERY PROMINENT ON DISCORD.
WE APPRECIATE HIS HARD WORK HERE.
– YES.
– TCU AT 16, KANSAS STATE AT 17, OLE MISS 18,
OKLAHOMA, WAY TOO LOW AT 19.
– I’D HAVE THEM HIGHER.
– WAY TOO LOW AT 19.
OREGON STATE AT 20.
THEN WE CLOSE IT OUT WITH WISCONSIN, IOWA,
TEXAS A&M WAY TOO LOW AT 23, MISSISSIPPI STATE AND KENTUCKY.
MISSISSIPPI STATE AND KENTUCKY,
THE TWO THAT JUMP OUT TO ME FOR BEING TOO LOW,
DEFINITELY OKLAHOMA AT 19.
OKLAHOMA’S GONNA BE REALLY GOOD.
I GET WHY THEY’RE 19.
OKLAHOMA’S GONNA BE REALLY, REALLY GOOD AGAIN THIS SEASON.
AND I SHOULDN’T SAY AGAIN,
‘CAUSE I REALIZED LAST SEASON WASN’T
QUITE LIVING UP TO EXPECTATIONS.
SO DON’T HOLD ME TO THAT.
BUT I THINK OKLAHOMA WILL AGAIN BE
VERY MUCH IN THE CONVERSATION DEEP INTO THE SEASON.
SO THEY’RE WAY TOO LOW AT 19.
UH, AND TEXAS A&M AT 23 IS TOO LOW.
IT’S TOO LOW.
UM, THEY MIGHT NOT CRACK THE TOP 10,
BUT AS TOP 15 TEAM
LATE IN THE SEASON,
PROVIDED CONNOR WEGMAN IS THE GUY,
PROVIDED THAT THEY KEEP JIMBO AWAY FROM THE OFFENSE.
HMM, THEY SHOULD BE HIGHER THAN 23.
I DON’T KNOW, MAN.
AGGIES ARE GONNA AGGIE, YOU KNOW THAT.
I THINK THAT’S JUST AS LONG AS AS LONG AS JIMBO’S THERE.
I JUST KIND OF KNOW WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO GET.
I KNOW HE WAS OUTSIDE OF THE PLAYOFF JUST A HAIR OUTSIDE OF THE PLAYOFF IN 2020,
BUT I DON’T KNOW.
I DON’T THINK ENOUGH HAS CHANGED.
SO YEAH, I WOULD MOVE OKLAHOMA UP.
I WOULD MOVE TCU DOWN.
I WOULD MOVE. I THINK OREGON STATE’S RIGHT RIGHT THERE.
I THINK WISCONSIN I WOULD HAVE A LITTLE BIT HIGHER IN THE MID-TEENS AT THE MOMENT
WITH HOW HIGH I THINK I AM IOWA IS INTERESTING.
I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO THINK ABOUT IOWA MISSISSIPPI STATE.
I’D MOVE DOWN KENTUCKY. I’D MOVE UP AND OF THE TEAMS JUST OUTSIDE UCLA, ARKANSAS, NORTH CAROLINA, TEXAS TECH, MINNESOTA
I THINK OF THOSE FIVE TEXAS TECH AND UCLA ARE THE ONES THAT I COULD SEE BEING TOP 20 ISH
I WAS GONNA MOVE CAROLINA UP
I WAS GONNA NORTH CAROLINA UP. YEAH, I’M
MAN, THE CLOSER WE GET TO WEEK ONE AND THE MORE I’VE BEEN DIGGING ON NORTH CAROLINA. I HATE THEIR DEFENSE
I KNOW I TRULY HATE THEIR DEFENSE
BUT I REALLY LOVE DRAKE MAY.
OF COURSE.
AND THEIR OFFENSE WILL AGAIN BE ELECTRIC.
AND IT WILL BE, IF YOU ARE A CAROLINA FAN,
ONE OF THOSE FRUSTRATING SEASONS WHERE
DRAKE MAY IS TRYING TO
OVERCOMPENSATE FOR THE DEFENSE.
BUT…
NO PHIL LONGO.
HE’S JUST– NO PHIL LONGO.
BUT DRAKE MAY IS JUST SO DAMN GOOD, MAN.
I KNOW.
HE’S SO DAMN GOOD.
AND, UM…
I GOTTA BELIEVE THAT
THEY ARE GOOD ENOUGH TO BE A TOP 20 CALIBER TEAM
ON OFFENSE ALONE.
MAN, YOU GOT MACK BROWN NIBBLING ON YOUR EARLOBE.
I DON’T KNOW.
I DON’T KNOW, TY.
THE TEXAS LOVE.
ANYTHING REMOTELY ASSOCIATED WITH TEXAS,
NOT NORTH CAROLINA.
OKAY, I’M IN ON UCLA IN TEXAS TECH TOO.
MY PROBLEM IS I’M IN ON JUST ABOUT EVERYBODY.
YEAH, SO I DON’T DISLIKE THOSE PICKS.
I JUST THINK THAT CAROLINA HERE IS VERY QUIET AT 28.
OKAY, FAVORED THIS WEEK AGAINST SOUTH CAROLINA.
SOUTH CAROLINA IS NOT WITHOUT ITS OWN ISSUES.
BUT THAT NEUTRAL SITE GAME I THINK WILL TELL US A LOT ABOUT BOTH THESE TEAMS.
I AGREE.
AND SO WITH THAT SAID, WE HAVE A WEEK ONE PREVIEW COMING WEDNESDAY, NOON EASTERN TIME
LIVE ON YOUTUBE.
OF COURSE, IT’LL BE ON THE PODCAST FEED SHORTLY THEREAFTER.
THE GAMES IN THIS THREE DAY WEEKEND ARE PRETTY EXTENSIVE.
ARE THEY NOT, TY, THAT WE’RE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT?
THEY’RE PRETTY EXTENSIVE.
I’VE ALREADY STARTED THINKING UP WHAT NAME I AM GOING WITH FOR WEEK ONE.
AND I KIND OF FEEL LIKE BECAUSE WE’VE HAD SEVEN MONTHS TO PREPARE FOR THE WEEK AHEAD,
THAT YOU AND I SHOULD PROBABLY CIRCLE THE WAGONS BEFOREHAND AND PRESENT THE UNITED FRONT
WHEN WE START THE PODCAST.
OH.
WHEN WE START THE STREAM ON WEDNESDAY, I FEEL LIKE WE SHOULD COME TO AN AGREEMENT BEFOREHAND
ABOUT WHAT WE ARE NAMING THE WEEK AND THEN GO FROM THERE.
I WAS THINKING SUPER SATURDAY BECAUSE IT SHOULD BE SUPER.
IS THAT GOOD?
NO, IT’S NOT GOOD.
YOU GOT TO DO BETTER THAN THAT.
YOU SOUND LIKE ESPN WAS SUPER SATURDAY.
I KNOW.
THE PREMIER OF COACH PRIME COLORADO AT TCU. WE HAVE NOT JIM HARBAUGH ON PEACOCK FOR EAST
CAROLINA, MICHIGAN, FRESNO STATE, PURDUE, OHIO STATE, INDIANA, BOISE STATE, WASHINGTON.
THAT’S SAUCY TIE. THAT’S VERY LIKE THAT ONE. THAT’S PRETTY GOOD. WEST VIRGINIA, PENN STATE.
YOU THINK PENN STATE YOU THINK THE WORLD OF PENN STATE, OF COURSE, GOING INTO THIS YEAR
AND ESPECIALLY THIS GAME. YOU MENTIONED NORTH CAROLINA, SOUTH CAROLINA, TEXAS TECH, WYOMING.
I DON’T KNOW THAT COULD HAVE SOME SECRET SAUCE.
OREGON PORTLAND STATE ANY THOUGHTS.
NO, NOT REALLY.
THE ONLY BIG ONE REALLY TO ME BIG BIG BIG ONE
IS GOING TO BE LSU FLORIDA STATE THOUGH.
THINGS DO KICK OFF KIND OF IN SPICY FASHION THURSDAY NIGHT
