The fine folks over at Fancred have helped us expand the reach of The Solid Verbal by giving us a slick profile page and a direct portal into the passionate minds of college football fans around the world.

Tire Fire Alert: Week Three
Over the past few seasons, The Solid Verbal has spoken, retroactively, about the most egregious weekly performances in the world of college football. These lowlights, referenced lovingly as “tire fires”, have become a regular part of the podcast, as well as the sport’s lexicon. In late 2011, EA Sports felt compelled to add a “Tire Fire Offense” badge to its NCAA 12 video game, offering a small pat on the back to gamers with poor offensive aptitude. In real college football, though, tire fires should never be considered notable or noble achievements. Fans around the country, from Iowa to… Iowa, . . .
