Episode Description

Ohio State vs. Michigan is here and so is Rivalry Week, the best week of the college football season! In this college football podcast episode, Ty and Dan give a full preview as the Buckeyes travel north to square off against the Wolverines and breakdown the key matchups, the impact of Jim Harbaugh’s suspension, and more. Plus, a deep dive of the Apple Cup as Washington looks to seal its perfect season, the so-called Platypus Cup on Friday between Oregon State and Oregon, and the Florida State-Florida rivalry as the Seminoles play without the injured Jordan Travis.

And, of course, a look around college football as some of the sport’s greatest rivalries write another chapter. Does Auburn stand a chance of knocking off Alabama in the Iron Bowl? Who wins Paul Bunyan’s Ax between Wisconsin and Minnesota? Is the point spread too high in the Clean, Old Fashioned Hate rivalry between Georgia and Georgia Tech? Can Louisville cap off an 11-1 season with a win over Kentucky for the Governor’s Cup, and is there potential drama in the Egg Bowl between Ole Miss and Mississippi State, or the Battle for the Chancellor’s Spurs as Texas Tech visits Texas?

COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK 13!
NEE, RIVALRY WEEK, DAN.
YEAH, BABY.
RIVALRY WEEK.
IT IS HERE.
IT IS THE LAST WEEK OF THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL REGULAR SEASON.
IT IS THE BIGGEST WEEK OF THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL REGULAR SEASON.
SIR, HOW ARE YOU, MY MAN?
I’M GREAT, TY.
I’M GREAT.
WHAT’S BETTER THAN THIS?
IT’S THANKSGIVING WEEK.
IT’S YOU’RE FILLING YOUR FACE UP WITH FOOD.
YOU’RE FILLING YOUR MIND AND YOUR HEART UP WITH COLLEGE FOOTBALL.
SO I GOT TO THINKING IT’S EASY TO CALL IT RIVALRY WEEK,
BUT WE CAN NAME SOMETHING BETTER THAN JUST RIVALRY WEEK.
WEEK 13.
IT ALL COMES.
NO, NO, NO, NO.
THIS IS WHAT I’M THINKING.
THERE ARE ENOUGH SITUATIONS ACROSS THIS GREAT LAND
BECAUSE WE HAVE A BUNCH OF UNDEFEATED TEAMS MORE THAN USUAL.
WE HAVE A BUNCH OF WE HAVE A CLOUDY PLAYOFF PICTURE BECAUSE OF THE SEC,
BECAUSE OF THE BIG 12, BECAUSE OF THE PAC-12, BECAUSE OF THE BIG TEN.
ACC PLAYOFF PICTURE IS PRETTY CLEAR, RIGHT?
IF FLORIDA STATE TAKES CARE OF BUSINESS, THEY’RE STILL
PROBABLY IN DECENT ENOUGH SHAPE, ESPECIALLY IF THEY CAN WIN BY,
I DON’T KNOW, DOUBLE DIGITS OR SO.
BUT HERE’S THE THING, TY, THOSE SEMINOLES TRAVEL.
THEY’RE ON THE ROAD.
THEY’RE GOING TO GAINESVILLE.
ALABAMA IS GOING TO WHERE THEY GOING.
THEY’RE GOING TO AUBURN, ALABAMA, TO COMPETE IN THE IRON BOWL.
OREGON STATE’S ON THE ROAD.
WASHINGTON STATE’S ON THE ROAD.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, TY, THEY HAVE A CHANCE TO PLAY SPOILER
AND BE LIKE, I’LL CALL IT SPOILER SATURDAY.
NO, THAT’S TOO EASY,
BECAUSE WHAT THESE TEAMS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO IS THEY CAN POISON
THE WELL AND ESPECIALLY DURING A WEEK IN WHICH MANY PEOPLE
NEED TO LET THAT BIRD COME TO TEMPERATURE, RIGHT?
YOU NEED TO GET THAT HEAT UP TO SNUFF.
I’M SAYING THERE IS POTENTIAL HERE
FOR A NUMBER OF THESE TEAMS TO BE ABSOLUTELY FINISHED.
SO I WENT AND I FOUND THE KING OF FINNISH
COMPOSING, JEAN SEBELIUS, FOR SALMONELLA SATURDAY.
NO!
THE BEAVERS CAN DO IT IN THEIR FINAL POWER CONFERENCE GAME.
OH, PEOPLE ARE LISTENING TO THIS ON THANKSGIVING,
MAYBE ON THE WAY TO THANKSGIVING.
165 IS THE RECOMMENDED TEMPERATURE FROM THE USDA,
THOUGH I BELIEVE BACTERIA DIES AROUND 140 SO YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH THE 150S.
BUT IF NOT, SALMONELLA IS COMING FOR YOU ON SATURDAY, TOO.
YOU MIGHT HAVE A STOMACH BUG FRIDAY.
THAT COULD BE THE SITUATION.
THERE’S A LOT OF SEBELIUS, A LOT OF SALMONELLA SATURDAY POTENTIAL.
ALL RIGHT. THAT’S ALL I’M SAYING, TY.
WELL, WITH THAT AS THE PREAMBLE,
WE HOPE WE DIDN’T RUIN TOO MANY THANKSGIVING FEASTS.
WE HOPE YOU WILL STICK AROUND FOR THE REST OF THIS YEAR PODCAST
BECAUSE WE’VE GOT A BUNCH OF GAMES TO GET THROUGH.
OF COURSE, YOU KNOW THE DRILL.
BIG DOGS, YOU KNOW THE DRILL.
WE’RE GOING THROUGH QUADS. SHALL WE GET TO OUR PICKS?
LET’S DANCE.
SO, LOOK, WE’RE GOING TO GO ABOUT THIS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENTLY TODAY

WHEN WE RECORD OUR BIG EPISODE, RECAPPING ALL THAT WAS IN RIVALRY WEEK
SATURDAY NIGHT.
ALL RIGHT, WHERE ARE WE STARTING?
WE GOT TO GET INTO THIS.
WE DO. LET’S START WITH BIG DOG NUMBER ONE.
LET’S CALL THIS ONE WHAT IT IS.
THIS IS THE CLIMAX OF THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON.
OOH, TIE.
HIGH NOON, FOX, OHIO STATE AT 11-0, ON THE ROAD AT MICHIGAN, ALSO 11-0.
THE POINTS SPREAD IS CURRENTLY THREE AND A HALF IN FAVOR OF THE MICHIGAN WOLVERINES.
THIS ISN’T JUST ANOTHER GAME, DAN.
THIS IS THE REASON WE’RE ALL HERE.
THIS IS THE REASON WE DO THIS SHOW.
AND IT’S THE REASON WHY WE’RE LIVE STREAMING RIGHT HERE AT SOLIDVERBAL.COM
OR YOUTUBE.COM/@SOLIDVERBAL.
THAT’S ALL.
YEAH, WE’RE GOING TO DO A LIVE WATCH ALONG OF THIS GAME.
CORRECT.
THIS YEAR, WE’VE GOT THE SIGN STEALING CONTROVERSY, WHICH ADDS DRAMA.
WE’VE GOT COACH JIM HARBAUGH SUSPENDED, ALSO ADDS DRAMA.
AND IN LIGHT OF ALL THAT, IT FEELS LIKE IT’S SORT OF A NOW OR NEVER SEASON
FOR MICHIGAN AND A REAL TURNING POINT
GOING INTO THIS NEW WORLD ORDER OF 2024 AND BEYOND.
BECAUSE IF YOU’RE MICHIGAN, IF YOU’RE A MICHIGAN FAN, YOU’RE A MICHIGAN PLAYER,
YOU MIGHT BE LOOKING AT THE ATMOSPHERICS HERE THINKING,
“DAMN, WE GOT TO WIN IT NOW, DON’T WE?”
BECAUSE IF NOT, THE WHITE KNIGHT OF THE NCAA IS GOING TO RIDE IN ON THE HORSE
AND SET THE WHOLE THING ON FIRE.
SO THAT IS YOUR BACKDROP, DAN.
THAT IS YOUR BACKDROP.
OTHER IMPORTANT CONTEXT IS THAT MICHIGAN HAS DOMINATED ON THE GROUND
THE LAST TWO TIMES THESE TEAMS HAVE PLAYED.
LAST YEAR, IT WAS 45-23, BUT CLOSE.
IT WAS A CLOSER GAME BEFORE DONOVAN EDWARDS BROKE OFF TWO LONG TOUCHDOWN RUNS.
THE YEAR PRIOR, IT WAS A 42-27 WIN.
THAT WAS THE GAME THAT FEATURED FIVE TOUCHDOWNS FROM HASSAN HASKINS.
SO IF NOTHING MORE, WHAT WE KNOW GOING INTO THIS GAME
IS THAT IN THE PREVIOUS TWO MATCHUPS, MICHIGAN HAS PROVEN IT CAN WIN
WITH THE POWER FOOTBALL AGAINST THE BUCKEYES.
WHERE ARE YOU AT?
I’M TAKING MICHIGAN, AND HERE’S WHY.
IT’S IN ANN ARBOR, AND OHIO STATE HAS NOT BEEN ESPECIALLY
SLICEY AND DICEY ON THE ROAD THIS YEAR.
YOU CAN ARGUE THEY HAVEN’T BEEN ESPECIALLY SLICEY OR DICEY ANYWHERE
UNLESS IT’S A MARVIN HARRISON CROSSING ROUTE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
I DON’T LOVE TAKING MICHIGAN HERE.
THEY’RE BEAT UP ALONG THE OFFENSIVE LINE, WHICH IS THE…
THAT’S THE CENTERPIECE OF EVERYTHING.
THAT’S THE CENTERPIECE OF THE MICHIGAN THANKSGIVING TABLE.
LEDERIOUS HENDERSON HAS BEEN BEAT UP STARTING LEFT TACKLE.
J.J. MCCARTHY, I DON’T THINK SCHROMORE HAS TRUSTED HIM FULLY.
HE HASN’T THROWN A TOUCHDOWN PASS IN, WHAT, A MONTH PLUS?
-SINCE OCTOBER 21ST? -BEEN A MINUTE.
THERE’S A LOT TO LOVE ABOUT THE FIRST NINE OR SO WEEKS ABOUT MICHIGAN’S SEASON,
AND I THINK A LITTLE BIT TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT
IN TERMS OF HOW COMPLETE MICHIGAN’S OFFENSE CAN BE
AGAINST A VERY GOOD STIFLING OHIO STATE DEFENSE.
AND THAT’S DOWNFIELD WHERE THEY DID SUCCEED,
ESPECIALLY IN THAT SECOND HALF LAST SEASON.
THE THING THAT I COME BACK TO WITH PICKING THIS GAME
IS THE FACT THAT IT’S IN ANN ARBOR,
AND THERE IS SOMETHING QUICKSANDY ABOUT RYAN DAY LOSING TWO IN A ROW
AND NOW ENTERING THIS GAME WITH A QUARTERBACK SITUATION,
WITH A FIRST HALF ON THE ROAD SITUATION THAT HASN’T BEEN GREAT,
THAT IT’S HARD FOR ME TO SEE OHIO STATE GETTING THEIR OFFENSIVE LINE ISSUES
AND PROTECTING KYLE MCCORD WORKED OUT AGAINST THIS FRONT.
I LOVE THAT OHIO STATE’S BEEN ABLE TO RUN THE BALL BETTER RECENTLY
WITH TRAVION HENDERSON’S HEALTH GETTING TO A MUCH BETTER POINT.
I THINK THE WINDER WONDER FACTOR CLEARLY FAVORS THE BUCKEYES
WITH HAVING A TRANSFORMATIVE RECEIVER IN MARVIN HARRISON JR.
AND TO A LESSER EXTENT EMEKA ABUKA.
BUT I THINK THE WAY MICHIGAN PLAYS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL,
THESE CORNERS AGAINST THIS PASSING ATTACK AT HOME
WITH THE FERVOR THAT’S GOING TO BE IN THE BIG HOUSE.
CLIMAX.
CONTINUE.
YOU USED CLIMAX BEFORE, TY.
YEAH.
ERUPTION.
YEAH.
I THINK THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT MICHIGAN HERE
THAT I THINK WILL CONTINUE TO GIVE THEM THE EMOTIONAL EDGE.
NOW THEY HAVEN’T RUN THE BALL.
YOU MENTIONED HOW SUCCESSFUL THEY WERE LAST YEAR IN RUNNING THE BALL
AND EVENTUALLY THEY BROKE DOWN OHIO STATE ON THE GROUND.
I THINK THEY’RE GOING TO STRUGGLE THIS GAME AGAINST OHIO STATE ON THE GROUND.
THEY EVENTUALLY SUCCEEDED SOMEWHAT
AND THEY HAMMERED IT OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN AGAINST PENN STATE.
I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE DIFFERENT.
I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE A JJ MCCARTHY PLAY THAT OPENS THIS UP IN THE SECOND HALF.
MAYBE MUCH TO THE RELUCTANCE OF SHRONE MOORE.
YEAH.
OFFENSIVE LINE COACH, OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR, ACTING HEAD COACH IN THIS GAME.
I THINK IT’S NECESSARY.
I THINK IT’S NECESSARY.
I THINK IT’S NEEDED.
AND IF I’M GOING TO GIVE AN EDGE HERE,
IT’S THE HOME TEAM WITH A GOOD BUT PROBABLY NOT GREAT QUARTERBACK
WITH EMOTION ON THEIR SIDE,
WITH THE SPEED ON DEFENSE ON THEIR SIDE,
AND THIS BEING THE FIRST BIG OUTING FOR KYLE MCCORD
ON THE ROAD AGAINST A TEAM OF THIS CALIBER.
ALL DUE RESPECT TO NOTRE DAME.
HOW DARE YOU?
HOW DARE YOU?
OF THIS CALIBER.
SMIRCH THE FIGHTING IRISH.
THEY BROUGHT ALMOST 11 GUYS TO THAT DEFENSIVE STAND ATTEMPT.
ALMOST.
I THINK THAT NOTRE DAME IS BETTER ON DEFENSE THAN THEY WERE THEN,
BUT I THINK I’M STILL SKEPTICAL.
IT WAS WHAT A SLOW START AGAINST RUTGERS ON THE ROAD,
A SLOW START AGAINST WISCONSIN ON THE ROAD.
LIKE THIS JUST ISN’T A TEAM THAT FEELS FEELS LIKE
BUT THEY’RE BUILT TO TAKE ON ALL COMERS,
NO MATTER THE LOCATION WHERE I HAVE SLIGHTLY MORE CONFIDENCE IN MICHIGAN AT HOME.
SO THAT’S WHERE I’M AT.
IT’S NOT LIKE MICHIGAN HAS BEEN A FAST STARTER.
NO, THEY WENT DOWN TO RUTGERS EARLY,
BUT MICHIGAN HAS HAD MOMENTS IN THE EARLY PARTS OF THEIR GAMES
WHERE THEY’VE STRUGGLED TO KIND OF GET IN.
LOOK, I DON’T HOLD THAT AGAINST THEM.
I DON’T HOLD IT AGAINST OHIO STATE.
I’VE BEEN HIGH ON MICHIGAN THIS WHOLE TIME.
I KNOW, BUT ISN’T THE OHIO STATE INTENTION ON OFFENSE
TO BE MUCH MORE LETHAL AND DOWNFIELD AND USING SPEED?
THAT’S WHAT WE THINK IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE.
IT HASN’T REALLY BEEN THAT.
THEY’VE ATTEMPTED THAT.
THEY JUST DON’T HAVE THE OFFENSIVE LINE OR QUARTERBACK PLAY ALL THE TIME TO DO IT.
IT’S BEEN MUCH MORE DEFENSE FOCUSED.
SURE. ON THE OHIO STATE SIDE.
AND THAT’S JUST BEEN DIFFERENT.
I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S BETTER OR WORSE.
IT’S BEEN DIFFERENT THAN WHAT WE’VE BEEN USED TO.
BUT LET ME COME BACK TO THIS.
I’VE BEEN HIGH ON MICHIGAN THIS WHOLE DAMN TIME.
I KNOW.
THE WEEK SCHEDULE, ALL OF IT.
I PICKED THEM TO WIN THE TITLE.
I’M NOT NECESSARILY BACKING OFF THAT IN LIGHT OF EVERYTHING WE’VE SEEN.
HOW, WHY WOULD YOU?
THEY’RE UNDEFEATED, RIGHT?
UNDEFEATED.
YOU HAVE NO REASON TO.
WE’LL SEE.
BUT LET ME ADDRESS THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM HERE.
OKAY, BECAUSE IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO IGNORE.
THE OFFENSE THE LAST TWO WEEKS HAS LOOKED VERY CONSERVATIVE.
YEAH.
YEAH, AND I WAS TALKING WITH OUR FRIEND ANDY STAPLES ON HIS SHOW AND HE
MENTIONED MAYBE A LACK OF CONFIDENCE IN THE PASSING GAME AND PROTECTING
JJ MCCARTHY WITH SOME OF THE INJURIES UP FRONT AND THAT CHANGING THE
STRATEGY ABOUT BEING MORE AGGRESSIVE DOWNFIELD, WHICH TO ME, I STILL AM
NOT BUYING BUT CONTINUE.
I MEAN, THEY ESSENTIALLY RAN PENN STATE’S OFFENSE IN THAT GAME AGAINST
PENN STATE.
YEAH, AND THEY WON BECAUSE THEY HAD BETTER PLAYERS AND A BETTER LINE AND
IT VERY MUCH LOOKED THAT THEY WERE PLAYING NOT TO LOSE WHICH IS NOT
NECESSARILY GOING TO INSTILL CONFIDENCE GOING INTO A BIG GAME LIKE THIS,
BUT THIS IS A STORY IN LAST WEEK TO ON THE ROAD IN MARYLAND.
IT JUST LOOKED LIKE THEY WERE PLAYING NOT TO LOSE AS YOU SAID WHEN YOU AND
I TOTALLY BACK AND FORTH.
IT LOOKED LIKE AN OFFENSIVE LINE COACH WAS CALLING THE OFFENSE BECAUSE IT
IS WELL, NOT JUST CALLING THE OFFENSE BUT CALLING THE GAME BEING IN CHARGE
OF THE GAME AND BIG HIGH LEVERAGE DECISIONS, YOU KNOW, THIRD DOWN
MIDFIELD FOURTH DOWN MIDFIELD.
OH, BETTER PUNT, RIGHT?
THIS IS ALL TO SAY THAT STILL MAY BE GOOD ENOUGH TO BEAT OHIO STATE.
THIS VERSION OF THE BUCKEYES AS I THINK YOU ARE KIND OF GENTLY ALLUDING
IS NOT AS GOOD AS EITHER OF THE TWO BUCKEYES TEAMS THAT WE SAW FROM THE
PREVIOUS TWO SEASONS, BUT THEY ARE FAR MORE BATTLE-TESTED THAN MICHIGAN
AT THIS POINT.
AND IF MICHIGAN HAS PROVEN IT CAN RUN ON OHIO STATE THE LAST TWO YEARS
OHIO STATE’S ALSO PROVEN IT CAN THROW IN MICHIGAN.
NOW, IT’S NOT CJ STROUD.
IT’S KYLE MCCORD, BUT I THINK KYLE MCCORD IS GOING TO HAVE A GAME.
I THINK HE’S GOING TO HAVE A GOOD GAME THROUGH THE AIR.
I THINK HE’S GOING TO FEED THE MONSTERS OUT WIDE AND I’M NOT SURE THAT
MICHIGAN HAS WHAT IT TAKES TO BE ABLE TO STOP THAT.
THEY CAN STOP IT TO AN EXTENT BUT YOU’RE NOT GOING TO COMPLETELY CUT IT
OFF.
I AM NOT PUTTING ANY MONEY ON THIS GAME.
I WOULDN’T DARE.
I WANT TO WATCH IT.
I WANT TO ENJOY IT WITH YOU AS PART OF THE LIVE WATCH ON THAT.
WE’RE GOING TO DO.
THIS IS A SUPER CLOSE GAME IN THE BIGGEST BIGGEST RIVALRY OF THIS
BEAUTIFUL SPORT.
MICHIGAN WINS 2624 OHIO STATE.
I WAS GOING TO YOU KNOW, MY SPECIFIC QUESTION WAS GOING TO BE CAN A TEAM
GET TO 27 POINTS?
NO, I DON’T THINK SO EITHER.
I HAVE IT 2317 MICHIGAN.
I CAN SEE THEY’RE COVERING IN THIS GAME.
HERE’S IS THERE ANY LIKE SPECIFIC SCENARIO THAT YOU FEEL LIKE IS GOING
TO DECIDE THIS GAME?
I HAVE ONE GO FOR IT.
I THINK IT’S OHIO STATE IN THE RED ZONE AND THEY’VE BEEN ABLE TO RUN IT
BETTER.
IF YOU CAN’T RUN IT, YOU CANNOT EXECUTE IN THE RED ZONE CONSISTENTLY
AGAINST GOOD TEAMS.
SO THEY’VE BEEN ABLE TO RUN IT BETTER WHICH IS ENCOURAGING BUT THEIR
NUMBERS IN THE RED ZONE AND MICHIGAN’S DEFENSE IN THE RED ZONE.
IT’S THE ADVANTAGE RIGHT NOW.
MICHIGAN HAS THAT ADVANTAGE THEIR DEFENSE IN THE RED ZONE AGAINST OHIO
STATE’S OFFENSE IN THE RED ZONE.
THAT TO ME IS GOING TO SAY EVERYTHING AND ALSO IF MICHIGAN CAN FORCE THIRD
AND LONGS AGAINST THIS IS MY BONUS AGAINST KYLE MCCORD IN THE OFFENSE.
I THINK THEY CAN BE IN A VERY VERY GOOD PLACE AND IT’S GOING TO JUST THE
MATCHUP OF WHICHEVER CORNER GETS MARVIN HARRISON JR.
WHETHER IT’S WILL JOHNSON OR MIKE SAMAR STILL IT’S GOING TO BE INCREDIBLE.
I CANNOT WAIT TO WATCH THAT ISOLATED CAMERA VIEW.
I THINK THE MATCHUP TRULY.
I DON’T THINK WE NEED TO OVERTHINK IT IF WE WANT TO RIDE THE UNDERTHINK
EXPRESS HERE.
CAN OHIO STATE NOT GET DESTROYED ON THE GROUND BY MICHIGAN THE WAY THEY
HAD THE LAST TWO YEARS.
CAN THEY MICHIGAN’S RUSHING ATTACK HASN’T BEEN WHERE IT’S BEEN THE LAST
TWO YEARS.
IT’S STILL VERY VERY GOOD.
BUT BUT CAN THEY KIND OF AVOID A SIMILAR TRAP RIGHT?
CAN THEY AVOID THAT BECAUSE THE GAME FOR THE MOST PART WAS CLOSE EACH EACH
OF THE LAST TWO YEARS.
IT WAS A LATE TOUCHDOWN FROM HASSAN HASKINS TOUCHDOWN NUMBER FIVE THAT BEAT
HIM TWO YEARS AGO.
AND LAST YEAR THE GAME WAS CLOSE UNTIL A 75 YARD YARD RUNNER AND 85 YARD RUN
BY DONOVAN EDWARDS.
SO THEY’RE RIGHT THERE WITH THEM.
IT’S NOT LIKE THEY’RE GETTING BLOWN OUT BUT THE THE OFFENSE ON THE MICHIGAN
SIDE HAS BEEN ABLE TO ASSERT ITS WILL WITH THE RUNNING GAME.
AND IF OHIO STATE CAN DO ANYTHING TO PREVENT AGAINST THAT AND MAKE IT A
LITTLE BIT OF A DIFFERENT GAME, MAYBE ONE THAT’S MORE RELIANT ON JJ
MCCARTHY.
I JUST CHANGED THE DYNAMIC A LITTLE BIT.
I DON’T KNOW.
I THINK IT’S CLOSE.
I’M NOT BETTING MONEY.
I WANT TO ENJOY IT.
IS THERE WHO’S THE BETTER QUARTERBACK IN THIS GAME?
THROWING INTO TWO EXCELLENT DEFENSE.
I STILL TRUST JJ MCCARTHY BETTER.
OKAY, I DO.
I REALLY BEEN THERE.
YEAH, HE’S BEEN THERE.
I THINK SO TOO.
SO WE SORT OF DISAGREE ON THIS ONE.
YEAH, WE SORT OF DISAGREE.
WHAT WAS YOUR FINAL SCORE AGAIN?
26 26 24.
SO THEY DON’T COVER.
NO, OHIO STATE PLUS THREE AND A HALF.
OHIO STATE PLUS THREE AND A HALF.
I’M GOING MICHIGAN – OKAY.
OKAY, LET’S GO NEXT BIG DOG HERE.
LET’S DO IT.
WE GOT A BUNCH THIS WEEK.
THEY CALL THIS ONE THE APPLE CUP DAN.
IT’S A BIG GAME BIG GAME 4 P.M.
FOX.
IT IS WASHINGTON STATE AT FIVE AND SIX ON THE ROAD AT WASHINGTON
AT 11 AND OH, THEY ARE A 16 AND ONE HALF POINT FAVORITE.
IS THIS A SCENARIO WHICH WE THROW THE RECORDS OUT?
NO, WE DON’T THROW THEM OUT HERE.
NO, WASHINGTON STATE’S RECORD IS WHAT IT IS FOR A REASON THAT
SAID I’M TAKING THE KOOKS TO COVER.
OKAY, LET ME ASK YOU THIS.
I’M GLAD YOU WENT THERE WITH IT FIRST.
OKAY, POINTS FOR IT IS 16 AND A HALF.
IT’S MANY POINTS.
IT’S A LOT OF POINTS.
IF WE REPLACED WASHINGTON STATE WITH ANOTHER TEAM OF A SIMILAR
PROFILE, LET’S SAY, I DON’T KNOW UCF.
ALL RIGHT, YOU WOULDN’T BAT AN EYELID AT 16 AND A HALF.
I MIGHT ACTUALLY IF YOU GIVE ME THAT SPECIFIC EXAMPLE UCF.
I’M JUST THROWING IT.
I’M PICKING A TEAM OUT OF A HAT THAT’S RIGHT.
SIMILARLY PROFILED AND LET THE SP+ OR SIMILAR DEFENSIVE
ISSUES, BUT I THINK THIS ISN’T JUST ANOTHER WEEK.
I THINK THIS ISN’T JUST ANOTHER APPLE CUP.
THEY DID ANNOUNCE.
THEY’RE GOING TO PLAY THIS ONE FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT FIVE YEARS,
WHICH IS GOOD.
BUT THIS IS THE LAST ONE WITH WASHINGTON STATE SHARING A
CONFERENCE.
THAT’S RIGHT.
THERE IS BAGGAGE THIS YEAR IN THIS GAME.
THERE IS BAGGAGE WASHINGTON IS LEAVING WAZZU FOR DEAD AND
THEY’RE JOINING THE BIG TEN.
YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT WAZZU HAS HAD THIS GAME CIRCLED SINCE
AUGUST OR WHENEVER THE HELL IT WAS THAT WASHINGTON ANNOUNCED
THIS MOVE.
YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IT.
THINK OF THE STATE OF PLAY.
WE’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE OREGON OREGON STATE GAME NEXT
THINK OF WHERE THESE TEAMS ARE AT NOW.
IT IS LITERALLY GOING TO BE A PACK TO A PACK TO YEAH NEXT
YEAR SUPER PACK SUPER PACK.
THANK YOU.
SO LIKE I CANNOT NOT CONSIDER THAT.
AS THE EMOTION THE OKAY, I CAN’T I JUST HAVE TO IT’S RIVALRY
WEEK.
SO YOU’RE TAKING WAZZU.
WHY ARE YOU TAKING WAZZU?
OKAY, I’M TAKING WAZZU BECAUSE I FEEL AS IF WELL, FIRST OF
ALL, WASHINGTON DOESN’T BEAT TEAMS BY 1617 POINTS, RIGHT?
THEY HAVE BEATEN EXACTLY ONE TEAM BY MORE THAN 13 POINTS AND
THAT WAS THE CAL GOLDEN BEARS.
I SHOULD SAY OVER THE LAST EIGHT WEEKS ONE PACK 12 TEAM IN
THE LAST YEAR OVER THE LAST EIGHT WEEKS.
THEY’VE BEATEN EXACTLY ONE TEAM BY MORE THAN 13 POINTS.
THAT WAS CAL SINCE THEN.
THEY’VE WON BY 7389 10 7 AND LAST WEEK ONLY TO YEAH, THEIR
DEFENSE.
THEY’RE MORE OF GROWER THAN SHOWER, RIGHT?
THEIR FOURTH QUARTER DEFENSE.
I SAW SOME STAT.
THEY I MEAN THEY ALLOWED A TOUCHDOWN TO OREGON, BUT THEY’VE
SHUT OUT A BUNCH OF THESE TEAMS IN THE FOURTH QUARTER.
SO FOR AS FLAWED AS WASHINGTON’S DEFENSE IS ESPECIALLY ON THE
GROUND, ESPECIALLY WITH THE PASS RUSH NOT GETTING HOME LIKE
EXPECTATIONS WOULD HAVE HAD YOU BELIEVE IN AUGUST.
THIS DEFENSE DOES GROW OVER THE COURSE OF THE GAME.
WE SAW THEM GET THE STOPS THAT THEY GOT AGAINST OREGON STATE
SAY WHATEVER YOU WILL ABOUT DJ YOU THROUGH THE AIR.
THEY GOT THE STOPS AND WASHINGTON STATE SPECIFICALLY.
DIRT.
THIS IS A KITCHEN SINK MOMENT, NOT JUST GAME.
IT’S A KITCHEN SINK MOMENT.
AND SO THEY’RE BUILT AROUND A SORT OF DINKIN DUNK PHILOSOPHY
ON OFFENSE.
I’D LOVE FOR THEM TO RUN CAM WARD A LOT IN THE FIRST HALF.
THE NAME OF THE GAME FOR WASHINGTON STATE WILL BE FINE SHOT
OPPORTUNITIES DOWNFIELD, ESPECIALLY JOSH KELLY RUN CAM
WARD.
SOME GENERATE THIRD AND SHORTS.
WASHINGTON HAS A LOT OF TROUBLE GETTING OFF THE FIELD ON THIRD
DOWN AND THEY’RE ESPECIALLY NOT GOOD AT FORCING THREE AND OUTS
WAS WHO NEEDS TO BE CREATIVE AND EVEN AS THINGS FALL APART
FOR THEM AS A PROGRAM WITH EXPECTATIONS OF BEING A POWER
CONFERENCE PROGRAM RIGHTFULLY.
SO I THINK THIS OPPORTUNITY AGAINST WASHINGTON COMING OFF
OF AN EMOTIONAL WIN A 2220 WIN.
THANKS IN PART TO A SAFETY RIGHT SAFETY WAS THE DIFFERENCE
AND IT’S A WHICH GAME WHICH DAY IS THIS GAME BEING PLAYED
FRIDAY OR SATURDAY?
IT’S GAMES ON SATURDAY.
IT’S GAMES ON SATURDAY.
I JUST I THINK THERE WILL BE SOMETHING ABOUT WAZZU HERE AND
THE GENERAL SENTIMENT AROUND WASHINGTON RIGHT NOW.
I’M SEEING IS LIKE WELL 12 AND OH, THEY DON’T SHOULDN’T EVEN
HAVE TO PLAY IN THE PAC-12 CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.
WHAT MORE DO THEY HAVE TO PROVE?
THEY’RE JUST THEY’RE COUNTING.
THIS IS A WIN.
I DON’T KNOW.
I THINK THERE’S A COCKTAIL INVOLVED.
THERE’S AN ELIXIR.
I THINK WASHINGTON’S BETTER.
THEY HAVE THE BETTER QUARTERBACK.
THEY HAVE THE BETTER TEAM.
THEY HAVE THE BETTER RESUME.
THEY’RE GOING TO WIN THIS GAME.
THEY DON’T DISTANCE THEMSELVES FROM TEAMS.
THEY DON’T TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS IN THE WAY THAT PLAYOFF TEAM
SHOULD I HAVE WASHINGTON WINNING THIS GAME 3731.
I FEEL GOOFY SAYING THIS BECAUSE WASHINGTON’S UNBEATEN AND
NOW A PLAYOFF TEAM PER THE LATEST COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF
RANKINGS.
YEAH, BUT I COME BACK.
TO WHAT WE MENTIONED A MINUTE AGO.
WHAT HAS WASHINGTON DONE OVER THE LAST EIGHT WEEKS OF THE
SEASON TO EARN A 16 AND A HALF POINT SPREAD RIGHT EXACTLY
NOTHING.
THIS IS CLEARLY A GOOD TEAM WITH A DYNAMIC OFFENSE, BUT A WEEK
AFTER A SLOPPY RAIN GAME IN A WEEK BEFORE A MONSTER REMATCH
THAT THEY MAY BE LOOKING AHEAD TO WITH OREGON IN VEGAS.
I DON’T KNOW.
NO, THEY’LL KNOW BY KICKOFF, RIGHT?
BECAUSE I KICK OFF THEY WILL KNOW OREGON OREGON STATE IS
FRIDAY EVENING.
YEAH, THEY’LL KNOW BY KICKOFF, BUT KEEP IN MIND WAZZU NEEDS
THIS TO GET BALL ELIGIBLE.
KEEP IN MIND AGAIN.
THIS IS THE FAR BIGGEST GAME ON THEIR SCHEDULE.
THIS IS A DE FACTO NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP SCENARIO ON THE
ROAD, BUT YOU’RE ON THE ROAD, BUT THAT’S A LOT OF POINTS.
WAZZU IS GOING TO MOVE THE BALL IN WASHINGTON AND FOR ME, IT
COMES DOWN TO EFFICIENCY.
ALL RIGHT, IF WAZZU GETS 12 DRIVES IN THIS GAME ON HOW MANY
OF THOSE DO THEY NEED TO SCORE POINTS?
ON HOW MANY BECAUSE THIS IS NOT A PARTICULARLY EXPLOSIVE
TEAM.
I KNOW YOU SAID YOU’D LIKE TO SEE HIM GO DOWN THE FIELD.
THEY BROUGHT OUT.
NO, THEY BROUGHT DUNK.
YEAH, THEY BROUGHT OVER BEEN OUR BUNKLE.
THIS IS VERY MUCH A DUNKIN DONUTS OFFENSE THAT WE’VE SEEN
SO FAR THIS SEASON.
THEY’VE PRETTY MUCH GONE FULL AIR RAID WITH BEEN OUR BUCKLE,
BUT IT’S A SITUATION WHERE THEY’RE REALLY NOT RUNNING THE
BALL THAT WELL.
CAM WARD IS THE TEAM’S LEADING RUSHER.
YOU KNOW, WHEN THEY ACTUALLY DO RUN THEY RUN.
THEY DON’T RUN WELL IN THE FIRST HALF, BUT WHEN THEY ACTUALLY
DO RUN AND HAVE DESIGNED SITUATIONS LIKE THEY’RE NOT BAD.
THEY JUST NEED TO DO MORE OF IT.
I THINK THEY HAVE SOME SORT OF BALANCE AND TO NOT MAKE IT
A ONE OF THE WORST FIRST HALF RUSHING TEAMS IN AMERICA.
YEAH, THEY NEED LIKE FIVE OR SIX TOUCHDOWNS TO WIN A GAME
LIKE THIS AND I DON’T KNOW IF THEY’RE GOING TO DO THAT AGAINST
WASHINGTON.
NOW WITHOUT ANY CHUNK PLAYS YOU NEED THE CHUNK PLAYS YOU TO
PROVE THAT YOU CAN GET THOSE CHUNK PLAYS.
MAYBE THEY’LL GET THEM IN THE BIGGEST MOMENT THIS SEASON,
BUT I THINK THEY CAN SCORE.
YEAH, AND I THINK THEY CAN ABSOLUTELY COVER 16 AND A HALF
POINTS.
I THINK THERE’S A TON OF OFFENSE IN THIS GAME WASHINGTON
HUNG 700 YARDS AND 51 POINTS ON HIM A YEAR AGO.
THAT WAS A TEAM WITH A MUCH BETTER DEFENSE WASHINGTON WINS
THIS GAME.
DAN.
HOWEVER, IF TWO IS A COINCIDENCE AND THREE IS A TREND, WHAT
DO WE CALL EIGHT STRAIGHT GAMES OF NOT BEING ABLE TO SEPARATE?
WHAT DO WE CALL WE CALL HOW MANY STRAIGHT YEARS?
I DON’T THINK NO TEAM HAS EVER RUN THE TABLE AND GONE 9 AND
0 IN THE PAC-12, RIGHT?
NO.
NO, I KNOW IT’S HUSKY STADIUM.
I KNOW WAZZU IS OWNED FOR ON THE ROAD INCLUDING LOSSES AT
ARIZONA STATE AND CAL WHICH IS ICK.
I WANT THOSE POINTS IN RIVALRY.
THIS HAS THE MAKINGS OF ONE OF THOSE GAMES WHERE WAZZU IS
CHASING LATE.
THEY DECIDE TO GO FOR TWO TO GET AT THE SEVEN OR EIGHT AND
THEY FAIL AND THEY LOSE BY 952 43 52 43.
WOW AN EXTRA DAY OF REST AND PRACTICE RIGHT WAZZU PLAYED
COLORADO SLICED AND DICED THEM ON FRIDAY NIGHT.
SO I HAD A POINTS A LOT OF POINTS.
IT’S A LOT OF POINTS.
LET’S LET’S TRAVEL BACK IN TIME.
DAN.
BOOTY DO BOOTY DO BOOTY DO.
LET’S GO TO THE PLATYPUS CUP.
WE CALL IT THE PLATYPUS CUP.
MAYBE YOU STILL CALL IT THE CIVIL WAR.
THEY PLAY FOR THE PLATYPUS TROPHY OF SOME SORT.
YEAH.
YES, KIND OF A COMBO BETWEEN A DUCK AND A AND A BEAVER.
YES, OF COURSE, OREGON STATE AT 8 AND 3 ON THE ROAD AT OREGON
10 AND 1 OREGON FAVORED BY 13 AND A HALF POINTS.
THIS ONE’S A FRIDAY NIGHT OR 830 EASTERN ON FOX.
THERE IS A HIDDEN MATCHUP IN THIS GAME THAT WE NEED TO DISCUSS.
BUT BEFORE I GET THERE, LET ME PLAY THE GAME THAT I PLAYED WITH
THE APPLE CUP.
IF WE SWAPPED OUT OREGON STATE FOR TEXAS A&M.
IF A&M WERE THE 13 AND A HALF POINT DOG ON THE ROAD IN
AUTZEN STADIUM.
I DON’T THINK YOU’D THINK TWICE ABOUT THAT LINE.
I DON’T THINK YOU WOULD I WOULDN’T BUT I DON’T A&M HAS A
DEFENSE THAT IN CENTER.
IT CAN’T MATCH.
OKAY, CONSIDER THE BAGGAGE.
CONSIDER THE BAGGAGE.
YOU STILL WANT TO GLOSS OVER THAT POINT SPREAD.
KEEP IN MIND, OREGON ALSO LEFT OREGON STATE FOR DEAD.
THEY JOINED THE BIG TEN AFTER AFTER OREGON STATE PUT THE FINISHING
TOUCHES ON A HUNDRED AND SIXTY TWO MILLION DOLLAR STADIUM RENOVATION
AT REESER STADIUM.
THEY WENT IN THE HOLE TO BUILD THE STADIUM UP AND THEN EVERYBODY
LEFT.
YEAH, THEY ALL LEFT THEM.
YEP.
IS THAT THE KIND OF UNIVERSITY YOU WANT TO ASSOCIATE YOURSELF
WITH DAN?
SURE.
I DON’T KNOW.
IT’S FINE BY ME.
IT’S COLD.
IT’S VERY I’VE ENJOYED REESER STADIUM BY THE WAY.
I’VE BEEN A COUPLE TIMES.
IT’S A GOOD TIME.
GOOD POTATO SALAD.
GOOD STADIUM.
GOOD POTATO SALAD.
OREGON STATE HAS HAD THIS GAME CIRCLED.
THEY ALMOST PEED IN THE PUNCH FOR WASHINGTON A WEEK AGO.
NOW THEY CAN NUKE OREGON’S PLAYOFF HOPES WITH A WIN.
TOTALLY SALMONELLA.
OREGON BETTER BE UP TO YOUR MUSIC.
NOT MINE THAT BIRD.
THOSE DUCKS BETTER BE UP TO TEMP.
GET IT TO A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-FIVE DEGREES PER THE FDA USDA FDA IS
DIFFERENT.
WHAT IS WHAT IS YOUR PICK HERE?
I’M GOING OREGON BIG.
HOW BIG I THINK OREGON’S GOING TO WIN THIS GAME BY THREE PLUS
TOUCHDOWNS.
YEAH, AND IT’S NOT BECAUSE I DON’T THINK OREGON STATE IS DECENT
PRETTY GOOD WHATEVER AND THEY’RE CERTAINLY ABOVE THE TEAMS THAT
OREGON HAS PLAYED AND MADE MINCEMEAT OUT OF RECENTLY, YOU KNOW,
THERE ARE MORE COMPLETE TEAM THAN USC AND CERTAINLY WHEN YOU LOOK
AT STANFORD AND CAL AND JUST A NUMBER OF THESE TEAMS ARE FLAWED
ARIZONA STATE LAST WEEK.
LIKE IT’S JUST OREGON STATE’S ON A DIFFERENT LEVEL.
THEY’RE BETTER.
THEY’RE MORE DANGEROUS.
THEY’VE GOT BETTER QUARTERBACK PLAY.
DAMIAN MARTINEZ IS ONE OF THE ABSOLUTE BEST BACKS IN THIS
CONFERENCE.
ONE OF THE YOU KNOW, A HANDFUL BEST IN THE COUNTRY.
THE WAY OREGON IS READY FOR THESE GAMES AND HAS BEEN READY FOR
THESE GAMES BY AND LARGE THIS YEAR, YOU KNOW PLAYING THE WAY THAT
THEY DID AGAINST UTAH.
I THINK OREGON STATE IS THEY’RE GOING TO BE READY FOR THIS GAME,
BUT I THINK THERE’S JUST LINGERING DEJECTION IS DEJECTION A WORD.
WE THINK THAT’S A WORD FROM LAST WEEK AGAINST WASHINGTON, A VERY
WINNABLE GAME AT HOME AGAINST WASHINGTON.
I THINK THEY THEY PUSH AND ALL THEIR EMOTIONAL CHIPS INTO THAT
AND NOW YOU TALK ABOUT LEAVING FOR DEAD.
HOW MUCH LONGER IS JONATHAN SMITH GOING TO BE THE COACH AT OREGON
STATE?
AND I DON’T BLAME HIM.
I THINK IN A PERFECT WORLD.
HE’D LOVE TO COACH AT OREGON STATE FOR A LONG TIME.
MAKE A LOT OF MONEY.
TAKE THIS TEAM TO A LOT OF BIG BOWL GAMES, BUT THAT’S NOT THE WORLD
IN WHICH WE LIVE.
THAT’S LINGERING OVER THE PROGRAM.
NOW.
I THINK OREGON CORNERS ARE GOING TO SMOTHER OREGON STATE RECEIVERS.
I THINK DJ YOU HAS BEEN OFF THIS OFFENSIVE LINE FOR OREGON STATE
HAS BEEN BEAT UP.
THERE’S ONLY SO MUCH ENERGY AND SPIRIT.
YOU CAN MUSTER WITH A BACKUP OFFENSIVE LINE.
THERE’S ONLY SO MUCH ENERGY AND SPIRIT.
YOU CAN MUSTER IF YOUR QUARTERBACKS THROWING LATE.
THERE’S ONLY SO MUCH IF OREGON’S DEFENSIVE LINE IS OVERWHELMING YOUR
OFFENSIVE LINE.
THERE’S ONLY SO MUCH YOU CAN MUSTER OF BUCKY IRVING AND JORDAN JAMES
ARE JUST MAKING, YOU KNOW, EIGHT NINE YARDS OF OF BEAVER PATTIES,
EVERY SINGLE EVERY SINGLE SNAP.
HE’S OKAY.
SO I THINK THERE ARE TOO MANY WAYS FOR OREGON TO WIN THIS GAME AND
THEY’RE GOING TO BE EMPHATIC ABOUT THIS, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE POTENTIALLY
THEY COULD BE IN A CONVERSATION ABOUT THE PLAYOFF WITH A WIN HERE WITH
A GREAT PERFORMANCE AGAINST WASHINGTON AND THEY DON’T HAVE A LOT OF
RESUME CHUNKS TO DISPLAY OREGON STATE WOULD BE A RANKED RESUME CHUNK
TO DISPLAY.
SO WINNING THIS GAME 45 TO 13 IS EMPHATIC.
MY FINAL SCORE.
I’M GOING TO SAY 4517 OR OKAY.
I’LL SAY THIS THE HIDDEN MATCHUP THAT CONCERNS ME IS OREGON STATE’S
RUSHING DEFENSE TRYING TO STOP BUCKY IRVING AND JORDAN JAMES.
WE MENTIONED IT AND THE OREGON RUSHING ATTACK JUST ON THE WHOLE IN
TERMS OF RUSHING YARDS PER GAME.
IF YOU GO OUT ONLINE AND LOOK FOR IT, OREGON STATE’S ACTUALLY PRETTY
GOOD.
THEY’RE 18TH NATIONALLY, BUT TO QUOTE THE WISE PROPHET RAFIKI.
LOOK HARDER.
WHO’S OREGON STATE PLAYED WITH A RUNNING ATTACK THAT SCARES YOU?
WHAT TEAMS HAVE THEY PLAYED THAT RUN AT 35 TIMES?
WELL, WHAT DO THEY DO?
THEY PLAY CAL JADE NOT IT’S A GOOD BACK.
YEAH, AND THEY GAVE UP A TON OF YARDAGE IN THAT GAME.
THAT’S SORT OF BY POINT.
I THINK IF YOU LOOK DEEP DOWN AT THE OREGON STATE RUSHING DEFENSE,
YOU’RE GOING TO FIND IT’S NOT ALL THAT GOOD.
THE NUMBERS MAKE IT LOOK BETTER THAN IT IS, BUT IT’S FOOL’S GOLD.
YEAH, AND THE DUCKS ARE GOING TO RUN FOR LIKE 250 AND WIN GOING AWAY.
I’M GOING TO DO THIS FOR YOU DAN RUBENSTEIN BECAUSE IT LAYS.
YEAH.
ALL RIGHT DOESN’T BOTHER ME.
I THINK OREGON’S LOCKED IN AND I THINK THIS IS 49 20 IN FAVOR OF THE
DUCKS.
THEY WIN BIG GOING AWAY.
WE AGREE MAKES GOOD SENSE.
FINAL BIG DOG DAN.
LET’S THE FLORIDA CUP.
YEAH, SURE.
LET’S GO BACK TO SATURDAY 7 P.M.
EASTERN TIME.
YEAH, ESPN FLORIDA STATE 11 AND 0 – SIX AND A HALF ON THE ROAD AT
FLORIDA FLORIDA WITH A RECORD OF FIVE AND SIX WHEN I MADE OUR DOCUMENT.
YEAH, THIS LINE HAS BEEN ALL OVER ALL OVER THE PLACE WHEN I MADE OUR
DOCUMENT.
THE LINE WAS FLORIDA STATE – 11 AND A HALF.
IT IS NOW FLORIDA STATE – SIX AND A HALF.
I HATE THE SITUATION FOR THE KNOLLS.
I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE THE SITUATION FOR THE KNOLLS JORDAN
TRAVIS DONE FOR THE YEAR GRUESOME INJURY A WEEK AGO STILL TURNS MY
STOMACH TO THINK ABOUT IT.
BUT THEY’RE ON THE ROAD AT NIGHT IN THE SWAMP FLORIDA NEEDS THE WIND
TO GET BOWL ELIGIBLE.
WHO KNOWS MAYBE BILLY NAPIER IS COACHING FOR A JOB.
I DON’T HONESTLY BELIEVE THAT BUT THE SEATS GETTING WARMER ANOTHER
THING TO CONSIDER.
CRAMMERTS IS ALSO OUT IN THIS FOOTBALL GAME BROKEN COLLARBONE.
THEY’RE STARTING REDSHIRT FRESHMAN MAX BROWN CERTAINLY WILL BE NO
PICNIC FOR HIM GOING UP AGAINST FLORIDA STATE.
SO YOU UNDERSTAND WHY THE LINE IS WHERE IT’S AT.
IT’S STILL I THINK A PRETTY GOOD SITUATION FOR THE GATORS, BUT MY
QUESTION IS WHETHER THE LINE HAS COME DOWN TOO MUCH.
SURE.
YOU KNOW, WE HAVE FOCUSED SO MUCH ON JORDAN TRAVIS BEING OUT THAT
WE HAVEN’T TALKED AT ALL ABOUT TATE RODEMAKER BY THE WAY CAME IN
GRANTED AGAINST NORTHERN ALABAMA AND LOOK PRETTY DECENT.
YEAH, HE HAS BEEN WITH THIS PROGRAM FOR THREE YEARS.
DAN.
HE IS NOT A NEWCOMER AND WILL NOW HAVE A FULL WEEK OF BEING THE GUY
IN PRACTICE GETTING ALL THE REPS THERE.
HE CAME IN AND RELIEF LAST YEAR WHEN JORDAN TRAVIS WENT DOWN AGAINST
LOUISVILLE.
AND SO NOW HE WILL HAVE ALL THE REPS AND MUCH MORE COMFORT THAN HE’S
EVER USED TO HAVING TOTALLY AND HE WAS ACTUALLY MIKE NORVELL’S VERY
FIRST COMMIT WHEN NORVELL TOOK THE JOB AT FLORIDA STATE.
HE’S BEEN THERE THE WHOLE TIME.
SO I THINK THERE IS DEFINITELY THIS NOTION OUT THERE THAT ALL JORDAN
TRAVIS IS DONE.
THEY GO TO THE SUN GOT SOME GUY THE WEIRD NAME.
WE MADE FUN.
I MADE FUN OF IT A YEAR AGO.
WHAT IS A TATE RODEMAKER?
I DON’T KNOW TATE RODEMAKER HAS BEEN THERE.
HE KNOWS THE OFFENSE.
HE WASN’T A DISASTER.
HE WON’T BE A DISASTER.
SO AGAIN, I ASK HAS THE LINE COME DOWN TOO MUCH.
I LOVED FLORIDA AT 11.
TEN AND A HALF, WHATEVER IT WAS BEFORE.
IT’S A GOOD QUESTION.
OKAY.
SO THE THING I LOVE TO LOOK FOR IN TEAMS MAKING A YEAR ONE TO YEAR TO
JUMP IS GENERALLY PASS RUSH AND THE ABILITY TO STOP BIG PLAYS YOU DO
THAT.
YOU CAN COVER UP FOR A NUMBER OF ROSTER FLAWS OR SO AND SO SO SO
PERFORMANCE IS DOING WHATEVER FLORIDA DOES NOT HAVE A PASS RUSH.
THEY DO NOT STOP BIG PLAYS AND IN A LOT OF INSTANCES THIS FLORIDA
DEFENSE JUST DID NOT GIVE A TON OF EFFORT.
YOU LOOK AT THE END OF THAT ARKANSAS GAME LIKE THERE’S A LOT TO DISCOUNT
ABOUT FLORIDA AND REASONABLY.
SO FLORIDA STATE ON THE OTHER HAND IS A TEAM THAT WITH JORDAN TRAVIS
DIDN’T NECESSARILY SEPARATE THEMSELVES FROM FLAWED TEAMS IN THE WAY THAT
I WOULD HOPE A PLAYOFF CALIBER TEAM WOULD AND NOW THEY’RE TAKING A
BACKUP QUARTERBACK TO A VERY DIFFICULT PLACE TO PLAY FLORIDA.
I BELIEVE BEAT FLORIDA STATE WITH DAN MULLEN WHEN AFTER DAN MULLEN WAS
FIRED THE INTERIM SITUATION, RIGHT?
SO JUST GENERALLY SPEAKING IN THE ETHER.
FLORIDA CAN GET UP FOR THIS GAME EVEN AS A NOTICEABLE UNDERDOG.
I CAN’T IN GOOD CONSCIOUS TAKE FLORIDA HERE.
I LOVE THE BEST OF FLORIDA RUNNING THE BALL.
I DON’T LOVE FLORIDA’S OFFENSIVE LINE AGAINST THIS FLORIDA STATE FRONT
THAT HOUNDS QUARTERBACKS.
THERE REALLY ISN’T A LOT TO LIKE IF YOU HAVE TO SQUINT REALLY VIOLENTLY
TO FIND ANY FLORIDA ADVANTAGE HERE.
YOU’RE STRICTLY GOING OFF OF VIBES TO SAY I FEEL AS IF FLORIDA CAN
SPOIL FLORIDA STATE SEASON JUST BECAUSE IT’S IN THE SWAMP.
YEAH, THE POINT IF IT WERE IF I WERE GETTING A TOUCHDOWN PLUS I’D FEEL
BETTER ABOUT IT.
I’M GOING TO GIVE I HATE IT, BUT I’M GIVING THE POINTS WITH A BACKUP
QUARTERBACK ON THE ROAD BECAUSE IT DOESN’T NECESSARILY MEAN THAT HE IS
A BAD QUARTERBACK BECAUSE MOST QUARTERBACKS WOULD BACK UP A QUARTERBACK
LIKE JORDAN TRAVIS.
SO I’M GOING TO REGRETFULLY AND ASHAMEDLY GIVE THE POINTS HERE.
WELL, LOOK, FLORIDA’S BEEN VERY LUMPY.
YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT FLORIDA TEAM ARE GOING TO GET FROM WEEK TO WEEK.
THEY’VE LOST FOUR IN A ROW, BUT THEY WENT ON THE ROAD AND THEY WERE
TIGHT A WEEK AGO WITH MIZZOU LOST THAT GAME 33 31 SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
SURE.
THEY’RE GOOD ENOUGH TO BE IN GAMES.
BUT AS WE’VE SEEN OVER THE LAST HOWEVER MANY WEEKS NOW, THEY’RE JUST
NOT REALLY GOOD ENOUGH TO WIN SOME OF THOSE GAMES.
IT’S BEEN A VERY UP AND DOWN SEASON FOR THE GATORS WHERE THE DEFENSE
COMING INTO THE YEAR WAS THE BIG QUESTION AND HASN’T REALLY IMPROVED
MUCH GRAHAM MERTZ, WHICH WAS MAYBE THE BIGGEST QUESTION OF ALL HAS
ACTUALLY BEEN PRETTY GOOD, BUT IT HASN’T SEEMED TO MATTER BECAUSE THE
DEFENSE SUCKS.
THEY GIVE THEIR THE MOST EXPLOSIVE ALLOWING DEFENSE IN AMERICA AND
THEY DO NOT TURN TEAMS OVER AS WELL AT ALL.
NOT AT ALL.
SO THERE’S NOT A LOT TO LOVE ABOUT FLORIDA’S ABILITY EVEN WITH A NOT
SO GOOD DEFENSE TO MAKE PLAYS.
THIS GAME IS A HARD PASS FOR ME ON THE BETTING FRONT.
I WOULD NEVER PUT REAL MONEY HERE.
I HAVE NO IDEA TRULY.
YEAH, TOO MANY FACTORS TO CONSIDER.
MY OFFICIAL PICK IS FLORIDA STATE 2820.
2820 I THINK TATE RODEMAKER IS GOOD ENOUGH TO GET THE JOB DONE.
I THINK FLORIDA STATE FLORIDA STATE HAS GOTTEN TO THIS POINT THIS
SEASON.
AND THEY’VE DONE SO NOT SOLELY BECAUSE OF GEORGE TRAVIS.
THEY’VE DONE SO BECAUSE OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST COUPLE SEASONS
MIKE NORVELL HAS BUILT UP THIS ROSTER.
THEY ARE VERY VERY SOLID ACROSS THE BOARD AND THEY’RE GOOD ENOUGH
TO BEAT FLORIDA EVEN ON THE ROAD AT NIGHT IN THE SWAMP 2820.
YEAH, MY FINAL SCORE.
YEAH, 30 TO 17 30 17.
ALL RIGHT.
NOW, SHALL WE GET TO OUR FIRST QUAD OF THE LONG WEEKEND AGAIN?
LET’S DO THAT.
LET’S DO IT.
BUT THE HEART THE PASSION THE LOVE THE COMMITMENT IN THE ENERGY YOU’RE
WILLING TO PUT INTO IT.
IRON BOWL, HUH?
THIS ONE IS SPICIER TO ME.
REALLY?
YES.
HERE ARE THE GAMES IN OUR AFTERNOON QUAD.
WE’VE GOT ALABAMA AUBURN THE IRON BOWL.
AUBURN A 14 AND A HALF POINT HOME DOG.
WE’VE GOT THE GAME FOR PAUL BUNYAN’S AXE.
WE’RE FOCUSING ON THESE NAMED GAMES AND NAMED TROPHIES BY THE WAY,
IN CASE YOU HAVEN’T DISCOVERED THIS YET.
WISCONSIN MINUS TWO AND A HALF ON THE ROAD AT MINNESOTA 330 ON FS1.
WE’VE GOT THE COMMONWEALTH CUP BETWEEN VIRGINIA TECH AND VIRGINIA
THAT ONE’S AT 330 ACC NETWORK VIRGINIA TECH FAVORED BY TWO AND A
HALF.
WE’VE ALSO GOT THE TERRITORIAL CUP 330 ESPN ARIZONA MINUS TEN AND A
HALF ON THE ROAD.
AS YOU YEAH, THERE ARE SOME OTHER GAMES HERE.
WE’LL GO THROUGH THEM VERY VERY QUICKLY.
THERE’S ALSO A SATURDAY AFTERNOON MEGA QUAD THAT I NEED TO CALL OUT
PLEASE FOR THE TIME BEING IN TERMS OF POWER FIVE RIVALRIES.
THESE ARE THE ONES THAT I THINK DREW THE MOST ATTENTION.
WHY IS THE IRON BOWL SPICY TO YOU?
IT’S SPICY TO ME BECAUSE I DON’T BELIEVE TEAMS ARE WHAT THEY ARE AT
THEIR LOWEST MOMENT, WHICH IS WHERE AUBURN WAS AFTER LOSING TO THE
DIEGO PAVIA AND NEW MEXICO STATE.
I THINK THEY LOOK PAST THEM.
I THINK IT WAS A LOOK AHEAD MOMENT THAT A BETTER VERSION OF THIS
AUBURN TEAM WON’T SUCCUMB TO BUT THIS IS THE REALITY IN WHICH WE LIVE
RIGHT NOW.
I THINK IT IS ESPECIALLY EASY FOR ALABAMA TO LOOK AT LAST WEEK’S RESULT
AND LET THEIR GUARD DOWN A LITTLE BIT.
I THINK IT’S ESPECIALLY EASY TO THINK JALEN MILROE HAS SHED HIS EARLY
SEASON STRUGGLES IN THROWING DUMB DUMB INTERCEPTIONS.
I THINK IT’S ESPECIALLY EASY TO THINK AFTER LAST WEEK AUBURN IS JUST A
TEAM THAT LOSES TO NEW MEXICO STATE AND THAT’S WHO THEY ARE EVERY SINGLE
WEEK.
AND FIRST OF ALL, JERRY KILL HAS DONE AN INCREDIBLE JOB IN LAS CRUCES.
THIS IS NO SLIGHT AT NEW MEXICO STATE SHOULD HAVE BEEN UMASS WEEK ONE,
BUT WHATEVER I I THINK AUBURN COVERS THIS SPREAD AT HOME WITH A PASS RUSH
IN WHAT WILL BE A FRENZIED ENVIRONMENT AND ALABAMA’S ALREADY CLINCHED
THE WEST.
NO, SO THEY’RE NOT LOOK THEY’RE GOING TO BE FOCUSED ON THE IRON BULLETS,
THE IRON BULL, BUT THEY’RE NOT SEEING THIS AS LIKE A PLAY IN GAME FOR THE
SEC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.
AND I DON’T KNOW.
I JUST THINK IT’S GOING TO BE A WEIRD GAME THAT AUBURN CAN FORCE A COUPLE
OF MISTAKES FROM JALEN MILROE.
I DON’T LOVE PEYTON THORNE, BUT I’M NOT READY TO OFFICIALLY ASSIGN AUBURN
AS THE TEAM WE SAW LAST WEEK AND I AM I AM READY TO SAY AND ALABAMA HASN’T
ALWAYS RUN AWAY FROM, YOU KNOW, CLEARLY FLAWED AVERAGE TEAMS, WHICH I THINK
AUBURN IS ESPECIALLY ON OFFENSE.
SO I HAVE ALABAMA WINNING THIS GAME, BUT NOT COVERING WHAT’S THE NUMBER AT
THE PRESENT MOMENT AND A HALF 14 AND A HALF COUPLE TOUCHDOWNS.
NO, I THINK I THINK ALABAMA WINS THIS GAME.
31 23.
AUBURN’S NOT A FINISHED PRODUCT.
THEY’RE JUST NOT NO AND THEY WEIRDLY HUNG WITH GEORGIA AND OLE MISS, BUT
THEN GOT ANNIHILATED AND COULDN’T REALLY SCORE AGAINST LSU.
OF COURSE, THEY LOST BY 21 AT HOME A WEEK AGO TO NEW MEXICO STATE A GOOD
NEW MEXICO STATE TEAM, BUT STILL NEW MEXICO STATE JUST VERY LUMPY ALL OVER
THE PLACE FOR BAM OR FOR AUBURN, WHICH I THINK MAKES THIS GAME AGAINST
BAMA EVEN HARDER TO PROJECT.
I DON’T LIKE THAT 14 AND A HALF NUMBER.
I DON’T I DON’T GOT AUBURN WINNING THIS.
I DON’T THINK THERE’S A CHANCE IN HELL.
THEY WIN THIS GAME, BUT I THINK IT’S SOMETHING LIKE 38 24 ALABAMA.
OH, SO THEY’RE BARELY NOT COVERING NOT COVERING HALF A POINT.
THE HOOK THE HOOK MAN.
THE HOOK SCARES ME.
IF THIS TUCKS UNDER 14, I’D CONSIDER MAYBE A SMALL PLAY ON BAMA BECAUSE I
STILL THINK BAMA’S CLEARLY THE BETTER TEAM HERE, BUT 14 AND A HALF THAT
LITTLE HOOK IN A RIVALRY ON THE ROAD THAT SCARES THE HELL OUT OF ME.
SO I’M ON AUBURN WITH YOU.
I AM.
ALL RIGHT, WE AGREE QUICKLY.
PAUL BUNYAN’S AXE, WISCONSIN MINUS TWO AND A HALF.
I DON’T KNOW PAUL BUNYAN.
WE’VE NEVER HAD HIM ON THE SHOW.
I GOT TO BELIEVE THIS IS THE KIND OF FOOTBALL PAUL BUNYAN.
WHAT’S THE OX BABE BIG BLUE OX?
YEAH.
OKAY, WHO WANTS A SPOILER?
I’VE GOT A SPOT WHO WANTS A SPOILER SALMONELLA SATURDAY SPOIL IT UP.
MINNESOTA STINKS.
YEAH, THEY STINK DAN.
THEY STARTED THE YEAR AS A TOP 25 A FRINGE TOP 25 ISH TEAMS.
THEY’VE GOTTEN WORSE ALMOST EVERY WEEK SINCE THEY’RE CURRENTLY 67TH IN THE
SP+ ENTIRELY ON THE BACK OF A TURNOVER MARGIN.
THAT’S PLUS FOR A DEFENSE THAT FORCES A BUNCH OF THREE AND OUTS AND A GOOD
SPECIAL TEAMS UNIT AND THAT IS LITERALLY IT.
THAT IS IT.
THEY STINK.
I AM CONFIDENTLY ON WISCONSIN HERE MINUS THE NUMBER.
WHY?
WHY I MEAN, WHY WISCONSIN WISE?
I KNOW I KNOW MINNESOTA STINKS.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT WISCONSIN?
THE TEAM ACTUALLY HAS TO MAKE PLAYS TO WIN A GAME.
WISCONSIN’S LOST THREE OR FOUR EDGE, NEBRASKA LAST WEEK THREE OR FOUR EDGE,
NEBRASKA LAST WEEK.
THEY BEAT YOUR INDIANA.
THEY LOST TO YOUR INDIANA WHO LOST MY EXCUSE ME AND NORTHWESTERN.
IT WASN’T ESPECIALLY CLOSE AGAINST NORTHWESTERN.
THIS IS MORE A BET AGAINST MINNESOTA THAN IT IS FOR WISCONSIN.
THAT’S WHERE WE’RE AT IN THE BIG TEN WEST.
IS IT NOT?
I THINK MINNESOTA’S BAD.
I’M GOING TO TAKE WISCONSIN HERE AND AN UGLY 1714 WIN COMMONWEALTH CUP 330
ACC NETWORK VIRGINIA TECH FIVE AND SIX MINUS TWO AND A HALF AT VIRGINIA.
OTHER THAN OHIO STATE MICHIGAN.
I’M ACTUALLY MOST CURIOUS ABOUT THIS GAME.
OKAY, I SAY THAT WITH A COMPLETELY STRAIGHT FACE.
I WAS HIGH IN VIRGINIA TECH LAST WEEK.
THEY PROBABLY I JINXED THEM OUT OF THEIR SIXTH WIN BY LOCKING THEM UP, BUT
THEY CAN DO IT THIS WEEK.
THEY CAN GO BOWLING.
VIRGINIA ON THE OTHER HAND IS PLAYING BETTER AND THEY’RE PLUCKY AND THEY’VE
GOT ANTHONY CALANDRIA ACC PLAYER OF THE WEEK LAST WEEK.
HE THOUGH COMMITTED A CARDINAL SIN OF RIVALRY GAMES.
OH AND HE MADE AN OFFHAND QUOTE ABOUT TECH QUOTE AFTER WE BEAT VIRGINIA TECH
THIS PROGRAM IS GOING TO SHOOT UP AND EVERYONE IN THE COUNTRY IS GOING TO
KNOW ABOUT US.
THEY DIDN’T PLAY THIS GAME A YEAR AGO BECAUSE OF THE TRAGEDY AT UVA.
I’M HAPPY THAT WE GET THIS GAME BACK.
SO THAT THAT IN AND OF ITSELF IS A BIG DEAL THIS WEEKEND.
VIRGINIA TECH IS 18 AND TWO THE LAST 20 TIMES.
THESE TEAMS HAVE PLAYED YOU MAY THINK WELL THAT WAS IN THE PAST.
IT DOESN’T MATTER.
THE PAST HAS A WEIRD WAY OF SHOWING UP IN THESE RIVALRY GAMES YEAR IN AND
YEAR OUT.
I DON’T KNOW WHY IT DIDN’T HAPPEN IN BEDLAM THIS YEAR.
OKAY, BUT ON THE WHOLE THE PAST.
THE PAST COMES OUT IN THESE GAMES VIRGINIA TECH ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY BEATS
VIRGINIA THE WAY PENN STATE ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY BEATS MARYLAND.
SO I’M ON HOKEY HOKEY HOKEY HIGH VIRGINIA TECH MINUS THE TWO AND A HALF.
SO THE SCARY THING IS VIRGINIA TECH HAS NOT BEEN GOOD ON THE ROAD THIS YEAR
AT ALL.
AND VIRGINIA IS THEY’RE NOT AN ELITE LOSER, BUT THEY FIND WAYS TO LOSE.
I LIKE VIRGINIA TECH HERE BECAUSE A QUARTERBACK PLAYING DEFENSE.
I THINK THAT’S SOMETHING I CAN JUST COUNT ON MORE WITH THE HOKIES.
IT SCARES ME BUT YOU ARE RIGHT THAT VIRGINIA TECH JUST WINS THIS GAME BY
AND LARGE.
THEY JUST WIN THIS GAME.
AND SO I’M GOING TO GO WITH THE THE VIRGINIA TECH THE HOKIE OFFENSE.
I’M GOING TO GO WITH THE PASS RUSH VIRGINIA TECH GETS IT DONE BECAUSE THEY
JUST I THINK THEY HAVE MORE WAYS TO WIN AND YOU KNOW, ALL DUE RESPECT TO
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA.
I DON’T THINK THE ENVIRONMENT IS GOING TO BE SO CRAZY THAT IT AFFECTS THE HOKIES
AND THEIR OFFENSE NOT A LOT OF BUNCH OF FAT FALSE STARTS OR ANYTHING.
YEAH, I’M GOING VIRGINIA TECH HERE BY I DON’T KNOW.
WHAT’S THE LINE TWO AND A HALF?
YEAH, THEY’RE GOING TO WIN THIS GAME BY 10 FINAL GAME HERE IN THE QUAD
TERRITORIAL CUP, ARIZONA MINUS TEN AND A HALF AT ASU.
LET’S JUST LOCK THIS ONE UP TO LOCK OF THE WEEK.
I LOOKED AT THIS I SAID IS THIS LINE A JOKE?
WHAT IS THIS?
I DON’T GET IT.
IS THIS SOME KIND OF SCHOOL FOR ANTS?
I’M TAKING THEM AS A LOCK.
IT’S OUR JAKE LOCKER PICK OF THE WEEK.
I DON’T NEED TO SPEND A WHOLE LOT OF TIME IN THIS.
I DON’T KNOW WHY ASU IS WITHIN TWO SCORES OF ARIZONA IN THIS GAME.
DO YOU WHAT DOES THIS DOES THIS LOCK CHANGE IF JADEN RASHAD OF STARTS?
HE’S BEEN PRACTICING AND WITH THE ONES AND FINALLY GOING TO MAKE A I DON’T
THINK IT IS IN PLACE TO MAKE A COMEBACK.
I HOPE HE DOES.
I WOULD LOVE TO SEE IT AND IF I’M WRONG, I’M WRONG, BUT I ARIZONA IS PLAYING
REALLY WELL.
THEY’RE PLAYING A REALLY REALLY WELL.
THEY’RE UP TO 15TH IN THE POLLS.
THIS TEAM IS A LOT TO PLAY FOR.
I THINK THEY’VE GOT A FULL HEAD OF STEAM RIGHT NOW.
DOES ANYTHING CHANGE IF OREGON WINS GOING AWAY AND ARIZONA IS NOT GOING TO
MAKE THE PAC-12 CHAMPIONSHIP GAME?
I DON’T THINK SO.
OKAY.
I DON’T THINK SO.
I HAVE ARIZONA BIG AS WELL.
OKAY.
I THINK ARIZONA WINS THIS GAME 42 TO 17 REAL QUICKLY BEFORE I GET TO THE
AFTERNOON MEGA QUAD.
LET’S OKAY.
RUMBLE IN THE ROCKIES COLORADO AT UTAH UTAH FAVORITE BY 22 AND A HALF QUICK
PICK.
I DON’T KNOW WHAT SHOULD OR SANDERS STATUS IS BECAUSE HE GOT HURT IN THAT
WAZZU GAME.
I’M GOING UTAH.
I’M GOING TO GO UTAH AS WELL.
LAND OF LINCOLN TROPHY NORTHWESTERN ON THE ROAD AT ILLINOIS NORTHWESTERN GOT
BOWL ELIGIBLE, ILLINOIS FIVE AND SIX TRYING TO GET BOWL ELIGIBLE, ILLINOIS
FAVORED BY FIVE AND A HALF POINTS HERE.

STRAIGHT.
I THINK NORTHWESTERN GETS IT DONE.
I SAY THEY START A NEW ONE.
LET’S GO ILLINOIS MINUS THE POINTS.

SORT OF POTENTIALLY IF EVERYTHING WORKS OUT IN THEIR FAVOR GEORGIA BIG AGAINST
GEORGIA TECH, ALTHOUGH IT SCARES ME A LITTLE THAT YOU KNOW, GEORGE IS GOING

I’LL GO WEST VIRGINIA MINUS WHATEVER AGAINST BAYLOR.
I THINK BAYLOR’S DONE KANSAS MINUS WHATEVER IT’S SINCE HE I THINK HE’S DONE
AND CAL UCLA UCLA GIVING NINE.
I LIKE CAL HERE.
KIND OF THIS IS THIS.
IT’S SO WEIRD.
THESE TWO TEAMS ARE NOT PLAYING ANYMORE.
NO CAL JOINING THE ACC UCLA JOINING THE BIG TEN.
AND AGAIN, IT’S ONE OF THOSE MATCHUPS WHERE THERE’S SCAR TISSUE, EVEN THOUGH
THEY’RE NOT RIVALS.
IT’S THE WEEKEND OR WHEN YOU KNOW, THE LA TEAMS TRAVEL UP NORTH.
I I’M GOING TO TAKE CAL HERE AND A LETDOWN SPOT FOR UCLA.
I THINK CAL GETS IT DONE.
I THINK I’M WITH YOU.
I THINK I’M WITH YOU.
ALL RIGHT, SHALL WE?
SHALL WE TRAVEL BACK IN TIME?
DO THE EARLY QUAD?
LET’S WELCOME TO THE PAIN ZONES WHERE WE LIVE.
LET’S GO TO THE PAIN ZONE HERE.
FOUR GAMES EARLY PART OF SATURDAY.
THE GOVERNOR’S CUP.
HIGH NOON ABC, KENTUCKY SIX AND FIVE ON THE ROAD AT LOUISVILLE.
TEN AND ONE LOUISVILLE FAVORED BY SEVEN OF THE OLD OAK AND BUCKET.
LOVE THIS GAME.
BIG TEN NETWORK, INDIANA THREE AND EIGHT PURDUE THREE AND EIGHT PURDUE FAVORED
BY THREE AND A HALF.
WE’VE GOT ON ESPN, TEXAS A&M AT LSU LSU FAVORED BY ELEVEN AND A HALF.
THEY DON’T HAVE A NAME FOR THAT GAME, BUT STILL ON OUR RADAR.
AND I ALSO PUT FS ONE HIGH NOON HOUSTON AT FOUR AND SEVEN AGAINST UCF UCF GOING
FOR A BOWL AT FIVE AND SIX.
THEY ARE FAVORED BY 13 AND A HALF POINT STAND QUICK PICKS.
GO GIVE ME QUICK ONES.
WHAT DO YOU GOT?
I LIKE LOUISVILLE HERE.
I THINK THEY’RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO RUN REALLY REALLY WELL AGAINST KENTUCKY
GETTING SORT OF ENERGIZED AHEAD OF THE ACC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME HUDSON CARD APPEARS
TO BE BACK FOR PURDUE.
SO I’M GOING TO TAKE THE BOILERS HERE, EVEN THOUGH I LOVE THEM.
THEY LOOK VERY SLOPPY GUYS.
WEST WITHOUT HIM HEISMAN CARD.
I’M GOING TO TAKE TEXAS A&M TO COVER AGAINST LSU.
I STILL DON’T THINK THE DEFENSE FOR LSU OBVIOUSLY IS WHERE IT NEEDS TO BE.
SO I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE A BACK AND FORTH SHOOTOUT TYPE MATCHUP.
JAYDEN DANIELS CERTAINLY IS GOING TO BE FEATURED AND NEEDS TO YOU KNOW, BECAUSE
IT SEEMS TO BE A VERY TIGHT RACE WITH BONE X.
I DON’T HAVE A GOOD CASE AGAINST JAYDEN DANIELS.
HE’S BEEN JUST BEYOND INCREDIBLE SINCE HE GOT TO FACE SEC DEFENSES AND ESCAPE
THOSE PAC-12 DEFENSES.
SO I’M GOING TO GO A&M TO COVER AND I’M GOING TO GO UCF TO COVER AGAINST
HOUSTON.
I’M NOT THAT I THINK THEY’RE RUN ALL OVER HIM.
I’M ON HOUSTON PLUS 13 AND A HALF.
OKAY PLAYING FOR HOLGER’S JOB.
I AM ON LSU MINUS WHATEVER AGAINST HIM.
I THINK A&M’S PACK IT UP PACK IT IN THERE.
THERE ARE RUMORS ABOUT GUYS GOING IN THE PORTAL.
NOW.
I THOSE GUYS ARE THINKING ABOUT CANCUN.
YEAH, THEY’RE NOT INTERESTED IN THIS GAME.
SO I’M ON LSU MINUS WHATEVER I’M ON PURDUE MINUS TWO AND A HALF.
OR THREE AND A HALF, WHATEVER THE LINE IS, AND I’LL ALSO TAKE LOUISVILLE.
YOU JUST IGNORING THE FACT THAT TEXAS A&M HAS WON 17 STRAIGHT AGAINST
IN-STATE OPPONENTS LIKE ABILENE CHRISTIAN AND RICE.
YOU SEE THAT POST THAT WAS GREAT.
BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL.
YEAH NEXT ANY OTHER GAMES HERE IN THIS IN THIS BLOCK THAT IT’S KIND OF A LAME
BLOCK OF GAMES TO BE HONEST SATURDAY EARLY.
YEAH, SYRACUSE SNOW DINO BABERS.
I THINK THEY’RE GOING TO COVER AND WIN AGAINST WAKE FOREST WHO THEY’VE BEEN
ABYSMAL.
I’M GOING TO TAKE DUKE AGAINST PIT.
I DON’T KNOW.
IT’S BAD.
I THINK DUKE IS FINDING WAYS BE THE DUKE DEFENSE IS BY FAR THE BEST THING
IN THIS GAME.
SO I’M GOING TO DUKE BLUE DEVILS.
ALL RIGHT, LET’S GO BACK IN TIME.
IF WE COULD ONCE MORE TO ACHIEVE FAILURE.
YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT THAT FAR.
NOBODY WANTS TO GO THAT FAR.
IT’S TOO SCARY TO SCARY.
YEAH, SOMETHING I GOT NEWS FOR YOU.
THAT’S WHERE WINNING IS WHERE WINNING IS IS THE THURSDAY AND FRIDAY QUAD.
YEAH.
SO WE DO THESE IN REVERSE ORDER BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE DOWNLOAD THE EPISODE
THEY DON’T GET A CHANCE TO LISTEN UNTIL YOU KNOW LATER ON IN THE WEEK BEFORE
SATURDAY’S IN MANY CASES SATURDAY MORNING.
SO WE DON’T PUT THIS ONE FIRST BECAUSE THEN YOU HEAR IT AND IT’S ALREADY
OUTDATED BY THE TIME YOU LISTEN.
WE DON’T WANT TO MAKE OURSELVES LOOK BAD REALLY IS WHAT THIS COMES DOWN TO
AGREE.
WELL, WE GOT TO TALK ABOUT THESE GAMES.
WE GOT SOME BIG RIVALRY GAMES.
WE GOT MAYBE THE BIGGEST G5 GAME OF THE YEAR, WHICH ISN’T IN THE QUAD, BUT
WE’LL GET TO GOT THE EGG BOWL THURSDAY NIGHT PLAY THIS ONE THANKSGIVING EVENING
AT 730 NES PIANO MISS A 10-POINT ROAD FAVORITE AT MISSISSIPPI STATE.
WE’VE GOT THE HEROES GAME FRIDAY AT HIGH NOON ON CBS BETWEEN IOWA AND
NEBRASKA NEBRASKA A TWO AND A HALF POINT HOME FAVORITE.
WE’VE ALSO GOT THE BATTLE FOR THE CHANCELLOR’S SPURS DAN FRIDAY 730 ABC.
IT IS TEXAS TECH.
IT IS TEXAS TEXAS IS FAVORED BY 12 AND ONE HALF POINTS AND WE GOT THE BATTLE
LINE RIVALRY, MISSOURI AND ARKANSAS MISSOURI FAVORED BY SEVEN AND A HALF
POINTS ON THE ROAD CLOSE OUT THE YEAR AGAINST THE HOGS FOUR O’CLOCK ON CBS
DAN WHO YOU GOT IN THESE GAMES.
OKAY, WHICH ONE DO YOU WANT TO START WITH?
LET’S START WITH THE EGG BOWL START WITH THE EGG BOWL.
I LIKE OLE MISS BIG HERE, YOU KNOW, I HATE THAT IT’S IN STARKVILLE AND
MISSISSIPPI STATE HAS BEEN AS BAD AS THEY’VE BEEN THIS YEAR, BUT IT’S HARD
TO SEE THEM SCORING OLE MISS’S DEFENSE IS DECENT AND I THINK THAT’S ENOUGH
CAN I HOLD DOWN?
CAN I STOP YOU FOR SECONDS?
YES.
THAT’S ALL YOU GOT TO SAY MISSISSIPPI STATE’S PLAYING THIS GAME.
MISSISSIPPI STATE NEEDS THE WIN TO GET BOWL ELIGIBLE.
THEY’RE NOT GOING TO GET THE WIN TO BE BOWL ELIGIBLE.
THEY FIRED THEIR COACH, BUT WOULD YOU CHECK OUT JUST BE LIKE THE EGG BOWL?
YEAH TO BE THE ULTIMATE ON THANKSGIVING DAY, RIGHT?
THANKS.
GOOD NIGHT.
ALL THE TIE-IN WITH SALMONELLA IS IS REAL.
YEAH.
OKAY, JUST DON’T OVERLOOK IT IN THE EGG BOWL.
ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN AT THE EGG BOWL.
SO YOU’RE STILL TAKING OLE MISS BIG THOUGH.
I’M STILL TAKING ALL I AGREE.
I AGREE.
I’D BE TERRIFIED THOUGH.
THE OVER UNDER IN THE IOWA NEBRASKA GAME IS 26 26 AND A HALF POINTS.
IT’S THE LOWEST TOTAL EVER.
I SAW PLENTY OF CONJECTURE OUT THERE ONLINE THAT IT STILL FEELS TOO HIGH.
YEAH, IT FEELS LIKE A 1310 KIND OF GAME.
I’M NOT BETTING THIS GAME AT LEAST NOT THE OVER I WILL COME BACK TO IT IN A
LITTLE BIT.
I WILL ABSTAIN FROM PICKING NOW BECAUSE THIS IS PART OF MY PARLAY THAT YOU
NEED TO HELP ME NAME.
BUT WHERE ARE YOU AT IOWA ON THE ROAD A TWO AND A HALF POINT DOG AGAINST
NEBRASKA?
BRASKA TOUGH FOUGHT BATTLE AND A LOT LOSING EFFORT LAST WEEK AGAINST
WISCONSIN.
IOWA IS IOWA.
THIS FEELS LIKE A GAME THAT IOWA RANDOMLY GETS ITS OFFENSE TOGETHER IN
AS SOON AS YOU’RE READY TO WRITE THEM OFF.
I’M GOING TO SAY 23 14 HAWKS.
HMM.
OKAY, I’LL COME BACK TO THIS ONE.
OKAY BATTLE FOR THE CHANCELLOR’S SPURS TEXAS TECH AT TEXAS TEXAS A TWELVE
AND A HALF POINT HOME FAVORITE.
I AM ON TEXAS HERE.
YOU THINK TEXAS WINS BIG TAKES CARE OF BUSINESS.
I’M ON TEXAS TO WIN.
OKAY, TEXAS TECH TO COVER TEXAS TECH IS NOT A BAD TEAM.
TEXAS TECH WON THREE STRAIGHT TEXAS TECH IS ONE THREE STRAIGHT.
THEY HAVE LARGELY FLOWN UNDER THE RADAR HERE DOWN THE STRETCH AND I THINK
THIS IS A GOOD TEAM.
I THINK THAT THEY WILL BE FIRED UP TO PLAY THIS GAME AND IT’S VERY EASY
FOR TEXAS TO KIND OF LOOK PAST THIS AND MAYBE WHAT’S TO COME IN THE
CONFERENCE TITLE GAME A WEEK FROM NOW IN THE PLAYOFF GAMES IF THEY SHOULD
GET THAT FAR.
SO I DON’T THINK NECESSARILY TEXAS IS GOING TO LET UP BUT I THINK TEXAS
TECH IS GOING TO BE LOADED FOR BEARS.
I WANT THOSE POINTS.
YEAH, I WISH TEXAS TECH DID SOMETHING.
YEAH BETTER THAN THEY DO.
I’M GOING TEXAS HERE TO WIN, YOU KNOW, IT COULD BE A WISH CASTING MOMENT
FOR ME BECAUSE TEXAS LOSING WOULD CERTAINLY BENEFIT OREGON IF OREGON
TAKES CARE OF BUSINESS, BUT TEXAS TECH HAS NOT BEEN GREAT ON THE ROAD.
IT STARTED OUT WITH LOSING TO WYOMING AND IT REALLY HAS THEY LOST THAT
BYU.
DID THEY NOT KNOW TEXAS TECH?
I JUST DON’T THINK THEY GET IT DONE AGAINST TEXAS.
I THINK TEXAS IS GOING TO ROLL HERE.
THEY’RE GOING TO BE COUNTING ON THE PASSING ATTACK MORE THAN THEY THOUGHT
THEY WOULD BECAUSE OF JONATHAN BROOKS’S INJURY A COUPLE WEEKS AGO, BUT
STILL TEXAS 31 14.
YEAH, I’M ON I’M ON TECH TO COVER AND THEN THE BATTLE LINE RIVALRY BETWEEN
MIZZOU AND ARKANSAS.
SEVEN AND A HALF POINTS.
I’M ON MIZZOU.
YEAH.
YEAH, I THINK I THINK I’M ON MIZZOU THERE THE BIG G5 GAMES HERE IN THIS
THURSDAY / FRIDAY QUAD UTSA ON THE ROAD AT TWO LANE MUST WATCH MUST WATCH
TV 330.
IT’S ON ABC, WHICH IS AWESOME.
I’M ON UTSA PLUS THREE AND A HALF.
I THINK I AM TOO AND IT’S HARD TO GAUGE SOMEWHAT BUT I THINK THEY’RE I THINK
MOMENTUM IS ON THEIR SIDE WITH HOW WELL THE OFFENSE HAS BEEN ROLLING LATELY.
AND LOOK, I KNOW TULANE HAS BEEN IN THESE SPOTS BEFORE.
I KNOW THIS IS UTSA’S FIRST YEAR IN THIS CONFERENCE, BUT AS MUCH AS I LIKE
TULANE AND THEIR ABILITY TO PREVENT BIGGER PLAYS WITH OF WHICH THEY’RE THE
BEST TEAM IN THE AMERICAN CERTAINLY THEY HAVEN’T BEEN GREAT DEFENDING THE
PAST THIS YEAR.
I THINK THAT THERE’S THAT’S WHERE THE OPPORTUNITY IS FOR THE ROADRUNNERS.
NOW YOU HAVE THE JEFF TRAILER FACTOR AND HIS NAME COMING UP WITH TEXAS A&M
STILL THOUGH.
I’M GONNA GO UTSA HERE.
TULANE’S PLAYED A LOT OF CLOSE GAMES AND UTSA HAD A ROCKY START BUT HAS GOT
A LOT BETTER.
YES.
SO THEY TOOK THE JUMP UP.
REMEMBER THEY JUMPED UP INTO A BETTER CONFERENCE AND NOW SUDDENLY THEY FIND
THEMSELVES GETTING THEIR ACT TOGETHER AND BEING A BIG GAME LIKE THIS.
SO I’M ON UTSA.
I’M ON BOISE STATE MINUS SIX AND A HALF AT HOME AGAINST AIR FORCE.
I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON WITH AIR FORCE.
SO GIVE ME BOISE DESPITE THE FACT THEY FIRED THEIR COACH DIDN’T SEEM TO MATTER
A WHOLE LOT LAST WEEK.
SO I’M ON BOISE AND I AM ON TCU.
I THINK BOISE CAN MAKE THE MOUNTAIN WEST CHAMPIONSHIP GAME RIGHT CAN STILL
MAKE THE MOUNTAIN WEST CHAMPIONSHIP GAME, WHICH IS KIND OF SURPRISING THAT
THEY WOULD FIRE ANDY AVALOS IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL THAT.
BUT NONETHELESS, I’M ON BOISE MINUS THE NUMBER THEY HAVE SOMETHING TO PLAY
FOR NOT SURE WHERE AIR FORCE IS AT.
I’M ON TCU PLUS THE NUMBER AGAINST OKLAHOMA.
TCU IS JUST KIND OF LIKE A PAIN IN THE ASS.
THAT’S WHERE I’M AT WITH TCU AT THIS POINT IN TIME.
YEP, AND THE OKLAHOMA SIDE TO ME.
I’M JUST NOT COMFORTABLE WITH THEM LAYING POINTS AT THIS JUNCTURE.
WHY?
THEY’RE MUCH BETTER AT HOME.
I HAVE NOT PICKED OKLAHOMA RIGHT ALL YEAR.
AND SO MY FIRST GUT INSTINCT WAS OKLAHOMA MINUS THE POINTS.
THAT’S WHY I’M GOING TO SEE YOU PLUS THE 10.
I THINK IT’S A REVENGE SPOT.
THAT WAS THE FIRST SORT OF IMAGE OF THE CRACKS ON THE OKLAHOMA DEFENSE.
SO I THINK IT I THINK DILLON GABRIEL AND JALIL FAROOQ ARE EXPECTED TO PLAY
OKLAHOMA AT HOME AGAINST THIS TCU DEFENSE.
I THINK THEY WIN THIS GAME QUITE EASILY.
SO GIVE ME GIVE ME THE SOONERS HERE AND FINALLY LAND GRANT GAME.
THEY PLAY IT FRIDAY NIGHT AT FORD FIELD.
THIS IS ON NBC.
THIS IS ONE OF THOSE GAMES THAT THEY HAD TO NEGOTIATE BECAUSE KEVIN WARREN
DIDN’T PUT THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON THE BIG TEN NBC CONTRACT.
YEP.
AND SO THEY HAD A SHIFT THIS ONE TO A FRIDAY NIGHT AT FORD FIELD PENN STATE
FAVORED BY 21 POINTS.
I’M ON PENN STATE.
I’LL TAKE PENN STATE – A NUMBER.
I THINK I’M GOING TO TAKE PENN STATE HERE AS WELL.
A NICE LITTLE ONE TOO, BY THE WAY, WITH THIS GAME BEING IN DETROIT AND THEN
THE MICHIGAN OHIO STATE GAME BEING DOWN THE ROAD IN ANN ARBOR.
SO WE CAN DO HUGE GAMES WITHIN WHATEVER IT IS A HALF HOUR.
ALL RIGHT, SHALL WE GET TO THE MOMENT YOU’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR?
OF COURSE.
TY VERSUS THE WORLD.
TY VERSUS THE WORLD.

LOUISIANA MINUS 12 AND A HALF IN THAT GAME AGAINST MONROE THAT I DO NOT
UNDERSTAND.
I DON’T GET THE LINE.
LITERALLY EVERYTHING I COULD SEE HAS THIS AT 21 POINTS OR MORE.
JUST GOING TO TRUST THE NUMBER.
OKAY, TRUST THE NUMBER.

MAYBE YOU’RE BETTER OFF NOT BETTING IT.

VIRGINIA TECH MINUS TWO AND A HALF.
WE BOTH LIKE IT.
YEAH.
YES.
THEY BRING THE TURKEY TO THE TABLE.
WE’VE GOT NEBRASKA MINUS TWO AND A HALF POINTS.
STILL DON’T REALLY KNOW WHY THEY’RE FAVORED.
THE POINT SPREAD HAS GONE MORE IN THEIR DIRECTION THROUGHOUT THE COURSE
OF THE WEEK.
OBVIOUSLY SOMEBODY LIKES THEM.
I’M NOT SURE I FULLY DO BUT THEY’RE BRINGING THE CORN.
TO THE TABLE AND THEN LET’S JUST GO STRAIGHT UP RICE RICE MINUS FOUR IN
THEIR GAME THIS WEEKEND.
THAT BRINGS US TO TURKEY CORN AND RICE.
DAN SOME SORT OF THANKSGIVING THEME PARLAY IS WHAT I’M THINKING.
DO WE HAVE A NAME THAT WE CAN WORKSHOP HERE ON THE FLY?
I MEAN YOU COULD DO THE PLUCKY PILGRIM PARLAY THE PLUCKY PILGRIM, RIGHT?
I MEAN, I DON’T KNOW THAT SOUNDS LIKE THE NAME OF A FUN BAR THE PLUCKY
PILGRIM.
I WAS THINKING THE SAME THANKSGIVING PLATTER PARLAY.
PLATTERS NOT BAD.
YOU HAVE THE PLATYPUS IN THERE SO IT COULD BE THE PLATYPUS.
HMM, NOT GREAT.
NO, DON’T LIKE IT.
SO YOU HAVE PILGRIM.
WHAT OTHER P WORDS ARE ALIGNED WITH THANKSGIVING?
I HAVE NO IDEA.
YOU KNOW PLATE FULL PARLAY, RIGHT?
BECAUSE YOU’RE THIS IS YOUR PLATE FULL RIGHT TURKEY AND CORN AND RICE AND
ALL THAT STUFF.
I THINK I MIGHT JUST GO WITH THE THANKSGIVING PARLAY PLATTER OR PARLOR
PLATTER PARLAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
I LIKE THAT BUT IT’S MORE OF A PLATE THAN A PLATTER.
YOU WANT ME TO GO PLUCKY PILGRIM?
I WANT THE PLUCKY PILGRIM PARLAY PILGRIM. PLUCKY PILGRIM PARLAY.
