With the Extra Life stream in the books, it's time to get back to football. Eddie and I officially open the bowl pick 'em (herloyalsons.com/pickem) by picking the small slate of five games this Saturday. Yes, it's probably bad football, but it's football and there's spreads and an Amazon gift card is on the line! Come join in the fun and prepare yourself for the joyous bowl season with us.
Chris, aka, Rakes of the Rakes Report, joins Tex once again, but this time for a live interview on the stream. Talk centers around (of course) Notre Dame Football, but also this crazy thing called Notre Dame Basketball!
Kaleb Schweiss, one of the hosts of the Ultima Final Fantasy podcast, joins a sleep deprived Tex to talk...well, Final Fantasy (surprise!). Also a hearty hat tip to UFF for their generous donation to the cause. I enjoyed the grind.
Ty Hildenbrant from The Solid Verbal joins the Extra Life effort to talk college football, Notre Dame football, 90's retro sports gaming, and we engage in a fun coach-speak bit. I also want to thank Dan & Ty for their generous donation to the Extra Life effort as well. Stay solid, y'all.
As we mentioned on the last football-related HLS podcast episode, THE ELITE would do a post-show. The topic 100% devolved into stupid drunk jokes and pro wrestling. We apologize in advance, but you knew this was going to happen, right?
We kick off the Extra Life interview series with the podcast that inspired me to take this crazy journey: Limit Break Radio. Nate, Robbie, and Nika joined me to discuss Extra Life, their shows (yes, plural, they also do Final Encounter Cast and a nationally syndicated gaming and eSports show, Checkpoint Radio), Final Fantasy, and gaming.
Be sure to check them out!
Loyal listeners, the podcast feed is going to take a short five episode detour (not including this one). As you've heard throughout the past few shows, I have participated in an event called Extra Life to benefit the Children's Miracle Network in memory of a young man named Aven. I did multiple interviews for my 24-plus hour marathon and wanted to share them with you in case you missed them.
Jack and Eddie return for another ELITE podcast. We have coaching moves, championship weekend recaps, bowl selection thoughts, Notre Dame takes, and kicking Jack repeatedly in the junk for Florida State's terrible 6-6 campaign. Oh, and we have a mystery Army/Navy pick thrown in. This is the only episode of the week so get on it!
It's conference championship week, but the insanity of the silly season of coaching searches has been doing its damnedest to take the spotlight, especially if you're Tennessee or Arizona State. We have picks and previews for all the biggest games this weekend, including Florida State's desperate attempt to keep their bowl streak alive, plus the latest (at least at the time of recording) coaching news and rumors.
The silly season of coaching hires and fires is underway now that the regular season has ended. With Notre Dame having a disappointing loss to Stanford, many ND fans would happily jump into that fray. After looking at the national picture, Tex fields live questions from the HLS Discord chat to talk through just where to go from here.
