It is an absolutely loaded episode this week, arguably filled with more topics than any episode we’ve ever recorded. Week 13 has come and gone and we saw some dry spells broken by two programs in rivalry games as Michigan and Oklahoma State win their respective games. Hassan Haskins was superb on Saturday and helped shred the Ohio State run defense on his way to 5 rushing TDs on the day as the Wolverines finally beat Ohio State 42-27 in Ann Arbor. In Stillwater, the Pokes used special teams and their stalwart defense in the 2nd half to knock off their rival Oklahoma in this year’s Bedlam game. Elsewhere, the Iron Bowl gave us an incredible game as Alabama was able to come back and beat Auburn on the road. Minnesota spoils Wisconsin’s shot at a Big Ten Title by handling the Badgers easily. Coach O wins his last game at LSU over Texas A&M and rides off into the sunset with one last “Geaux Tigahs” and UTSA falls for the first time this year, losing to North Texas.
The coaching carousel is red-hot in College Football and it all starts with Lincoln Riley’s surprise move to USC. The guys discuss the move, why it makes sense, and what’s next for the Men of Troy. Billy Napier’s patience pays off as he gets the Florida job, B-Fox’s favorite Kalen DeBoer lands the Washington gig, and Washington State removes the interim tag from Jake Dickert to make him the official head coach.
Moving on to the upcoming games, it is Conference Championship week, and the guys preview and pick each of the Power 5 games plus the American’s Championship game between Houston and Cincinnati.
Just as the segment was wrapping up, huge breaking news dropped that Brian Kelly was leaving Notre Dame for LSU. You get B-Fox and B-Frank’s live reaction to the news. Unfiltered and unedited reaction. It is something.
Lastly, the guys hop into College Basketball (55:52) to recap Feast Week and the winners and losers. There is a lot of talk about the Duke and Gonzaga game that could be the best of the year. Iowa State’s surprising 6-0 start, Dayton’s run in Orlando, Wisconsin winning the Maui Jim Maui Invitational in Las Vegas, Florida’s run in Fort Myers, and of course, the defending National Champs, Baylor, are still a very good team. On the flip side, Illinois, St. Bonaventure, the entire Pac-12, and rutger grab the “loser” title for the week after suffering some bad losses.
