College Football is Back! (9/1)
Ty and Dan welcome back college football by reviewing a wild first weekend, including Clemson’s shootout victory over Georgia, Alabama’s rout of Virginia Tech, LSU’s impressive showing against TCU, and USC’s underwhelming performance against Hawaii. Plus, tips for dealing with Manzielapocalypse, watching Tommy Rees, and the answer to an age old question: How many batteries does it take to beat Kansas State? (Just one double-A!)

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Kevin James, SUNY Cortland attendee. I swear to you, he used to be a funny stand-up. I promise. ***** • For the first time, Ohio St AD Gene Smith admits that he asked Jim Tressel to resign. I’m guessing “asked” is probably a kind word for “told.” Just guessing though. • There might not be an NFL season again. Or something. • B1G commissioner Jim Delaney wouldn’t mind the conference going rogue. Or off the grid. Either one sounds cool. • CBS’s Bryan Fischer has a recruiting notebook. I’ll bet it has rad, . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by former New York School of Visual Arts right tackle Fred Armisen. He also gave a commencement speech. ***** • Oregon CB Cliff Harris took a leisurely drive (in a dubiously rented car with a suspended license) somewhere in the 118 mph range and state police apparently frowned upon it. Whatever. • Ohio State introduced new (interim) head coach Luke Fickell. He was asked fair questions and gave back nothing but cliches. Have fun, Columbus media. • Former Ohio St QB Terrelle Pryor signed yesterday with Drew Rosenhaus and they’ll address the media at . . .
The E-mail Show (5/11)
Ty and Dan plow through overflowing voicemail and e-mail inboxes and discuss fines for the Fiesta Bowl, penalties for Jim Tressel, alternative postseasons for college football, and more awkward robot scenarios.
Non-AQ Preview (5/10)
Ty and Dan delve into 10 non-AQ teams and preview an underrated and surprisingly deep group of teams outside the six major conferences.

Today’s Chorus is brought to you, in honor of today’s Independence Bowl by “Broken Arrow,” the greatest of all the Air Force movies that happen to star John Travolta and Christian Slater of all time. Or the worst. ***** • Last night, FIU beat Toledo 34-32 in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. The game involved a hook-and-ladder to save 4th and 17, a RB named “Adonis,” and enthusiasm from the broadcast team that can only be defined as “slightly above-average.” FIU coach Mario Cristobol was pleased. • Hawaii got killed by Tulsa Friday night in the Hawaii Bowl. Turnovers were . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Michigan alum Lucy Liu, who, all things considered, is probably pretty happy with the Christmas Eve Columbus, OH is having. ***** • San Diego State had their way with Navy 35-14 in last night’s Poinsettia Bowl. SDSU RB Ronnie HIllman is now officially an enemy of the state after what he did to our brave Naval Forces. • Once again, Ohio State suspended five players for selling awards, rings, and jerseys, including QB Terrelle Pryor, RB Dan Herron, and WR Devier Posey. They’ll sit, if back, for the first five games of 2011, . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly, who I saw on a Texas sideline once (but didn’t take this picture). Mack Brown has since blamed them for this season’s slide. ***** • Since we last spoke, everybody has hired a new coach (image via). Ahem: Florida convinced Texas DC Will Muschamp (and his wristband) to leave the Austin Tire Fire for the Gainesville Tire Fire. EDSBS’s Spencer Hall reacts and makes it about blowfish sushi. Of course he does. Miami hired Solid Verbal Guest (and Temple coach) Al Golden. He once hosted a training video. . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by former Georgia State student Julia Roberts. Alabama may have the money, championships, tradition, and name recognition, but they don’t have the star of “Eat Pray Love.” Take that, Tide. Take that. ***** • UCLA lost at Washington last night in a rather unimpressive showing. UCLA fans, much like Sammi Sweetheart, are DONE. • Alabama mercilessly tickled first-year team Georgia State last night. Good for you, Alabama, finally standing up for the big guy. • Due to safety issues, only one end zone will be used during Saturday’s Northwestern/Illinois tilt. This only adds to . . .
