Tire Fire Alert: Week Four
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, . . .
Happy Birthday To Us! (8/26)
Ty and Dan celebrate their fifth birthday by taking live calls from Verballers about Stanford being potentially overrated, Penn State’s prospects against Syracuse, a hypothetical Oregon coach hire, Ty’s mysterious day job, and more. Plus, does Jameis Winston make Florida State a contender, and does Louisville have any chance of being in the BCS Championship conversation?
Ty and Dan grasp for college football news with feverish conference expansion talk seemingly in the past. E-mails, voice messages and piling on Lane Kiffin.
