Shane and Tex talk about one final upset to cap off the 2016 season: Clemson over Bama for the title. Plus, the Notre Dame coaching staff finds some final pieces and a bit of a look at ND's current recruiting status going into signing day.
The college football season is coming to an end, so make sure to not Lane Kiffin the whole thing and catch our reactions to the New Year's Six bowl games, a preview of the national title game, the latest in college football news, and one final pick with Eddie.
A 4-8 Notre Dame, loads of coaching turnover (including one that broke right before we recorded the show!), and even some less than desirable bowl games...it's time to say farewell to all of it. Here's hoping next year is better!
Shane and Tex cover the latest in CFB news, plus the departure of Mike Denbrock from the Irish, and bowl picks with Eddie.
No, we aren't just talking about Notre Dame. Shane and Tex found the first round of bowl games less than desirable and spent more time tuning out than tuning in. Plus, a dicussion of NFL-bound stars taking a pass on their respective bowl games and the hot hot takes that followed. There are many more CFB headlines within as well as 18 (!) bowl game picks with Eddie as the #HAILGAMBLOR Pick 'Em continues.
Remember that Notre Dame free episode a couple of weeks ago? Shane and Tex make up for it here with a boat-load of news starting with the Echoes football banquet and the latest in coaching hires and fires for the Irish. Of course, there is other college football news to discuss as well as kicking off our #HAILGAMBLOR bowl pick 'em (which you should join!) as Eddie and Tex make their picks for the first week of bowl season.
It's that time of year of again, the first big wave of coaching changes have hit college football after championship week concluded. Shane and Tex recap all the latest moves and take a look at the interesting upward trend of assistant coaching salaries, why no Power Five head coach gone to another Power Five school, and how Alabama is another example of just how hard it is, and how lucky you need to be, in order to find the perfect head coach.
You may remember on the last Friday Roundup, Shane and Tex teased that they would be on a local Dallas/Ft. Worth station this past Saturday. The audio of the show has been delivered and the college football half of the show has been uploaded for your listening pleasure. Hear the duo talk CFB playoffs and rankings as well as Jack Swarbrick's comments on his podcast regarding the program and Brian Kelly--all without cursing!
The show will be rebroadcast in its entirety on 620AM KEXB in the DFW area, on their live stream, or the TuneIn Radio app at 12pm CT/1pm ET.
In the world of college football, the focus was on conference championships and playoffs. For Notre Dame, the focus was on Jack Swarbrick's latest comments made on his weekly podcast show and the reactions to them in the form of various GoFundMe campaigns. Shane and Tex dive into both on the last recap episode of the 2016 regular season.
Yes, we always have a major focus in our shows on ND Football, but let's be honest with each other. After this season, we need a break from talking about it and you need a break from listening to it. Shane and I take this so seriously that we try our damnedest not to even mention Notre Dame by name the entire episode. Even without ND, there is lots to talk about and games to pick. As a special treat, we also have a dramatic reading of a Twitter blog fight because college football continues to forever be a place of wonderful dumb things to enjoy.
At least, as far as Notre Dame is concerned, it's over. There is still more college football to talk about (and enjoy!) this season, but there is also much to dive into in regards to Notre Dame and just where they go from here.
