NCAA Sim 2018: Notre Dame vs. Michigan

August 14, 2018

Are you starving for football, we're definitely starving for football. Ryan dusted off his old copy of NCAA '14, downloaded some updated rosters, turned the game commentary down to zero and takes over with Shane. If it's in the game, it's in the game...including every bit of Irish angst that you'd expect. Want to see the video of the sim?

On Vacation

February 21, 2018

Vacation is supposed to be that thing in which you get some quality R&R--unless you are the NCAA and that term means stripping wins for no damned good reason. Enough news happened since our last podcast, so here we all talking NCAA punishing ND for punishing their own as well some other headlines that caught our eye over the last month.

Oh, and we're going to start streaming this thing on Twitch as well. Head over to twitch.tv/herloyalsons and give us a follow if you like some visuals with your audio.

HLS trying new technology...what could possibly go wrong?!


Tide Rolls and the ND Offseason Steamrolls

January 11, 2018

Folks, the 2017 has officially concluded. In true fashion, the podcast is delayed a day which, of course, brings some of the worst possible news for Notre Dame fans. Plus, winners are announced for the HLS Pick 'Em. We will take a bit of a break after this episode--mostly to avoid bringing any further terrible news for at least a little while.


SEC: Swiping Elko and Championships

January 5, 2018

Podcasting is a fun medium; however, when using it to cover a sport that can go zero to stupid at the drop of the hat things get weird. With no plans to talk about Notre Dame at all in this episode, Shane and Ryan recorded early, blissfully unaware that Mike Elko would hold a job in College Station the following day. So, as sweet summer children, they do nothing but preview the National Championship between Georgia and Alabama (while attempting to crown UCF as CFB's true champion).

Through the magic of podcasting time travel, Eddie and Ryan are able to chat about the earth-shattering development that rocked Notre Dame fans by recording later after the news broke.

So...yeah, this episode is a little interesting and this is all either the result of Brian Kelly's halftime blood sacrifice to win the Citrus Bowl, an attempt to divide by zero, or the end result of having two SEC teams in the title game.


We Demand More Citrus! (aka, The Sickcast)

January 4, 2018

Ryan and Shane could use every last bit of vitamin C from the Citrus Bowl trophy as they are both under the weather to break down Notre Dame's victory over LSU. It's like a drunkcast, only more sober and painful on the vocal chords.


Citrus Bowl Preview

December 29, 2017

The cold open returns as does Notre Dame football! Shane and Ryan take an in-depth look at the upcoming Citrus Bowl between the Fighting Irish and LSU. Plus, picks for the rest of the bowl games with Eddie. This is the final episode of 2017 and, when next your ears meet our voices, we will have only one college football game remaining.
