Well, this week of college football was certainly a thing that happened. Notre Dame decided to give all Irish fans a heart attack in a rain-soaked senior day while most teams around the nation took a break from playing football teams with a pulse. But hey, it's football and there are things to discuss. Come join us.
Well, it's not exactly the best slate of games that we've seen in the 2017 season, but if one thing has held constant, it's that none of them have been boring. Although we seem to be very willing to test it with the onslaught of bad matchups and FCS tours. Quite a few of the top teams in the nation are looking to bounce back from some bad losses and Notre Dame finds themselves in that group.
There's only a couple of weeks left in the regular season. Let's enjoy them while they last.
Well...that happened. Notre Dame may just need to avoid South Beach for a long time because Miami gave every Irish fan Alabama flashbacks. ND, however, wasn't the only playoff contender downed in brutal fashion this past weekend. There's a lot to breakdown from this Saturday, including a discussion of the bigger picture of where the Irish go from here.
The cold open returns as does Shane. The Irish also make a return of their own, heading down to Miami for the first time since that fateful BCS Championship game that abruptly ended 2012's magical run to take part in one of three top-ten matchups in Saturday. This is one of the most jam-packed weeks of top-tier college football in some time.
Come join us and get yourself ready for one hell of a ride.
A win's a win, even if Notre Dame didn't put the usual choke-hold on their opponent. Still, a 700+ yard performance and a double-digit win falling in the sloppy category seems like a decent place to be in. It's certainly a spot a few other teams around college football would love to be in as well after a couple of major upsets. Let's dig in to the potential playoff implications and get some predictions for tomorrow's playoff rankings in this recap episode.
Shane is unfortunately still out, but the preview episode will keep truckin' on. There is a ton of scoreboard watching for Irish fans this week as there are many games that could greatly affect Notre Dame's playoff aspirations. Of course, the Irish still have a lot of control over their own destiny as Wake Forest comes into town. There are no weeks off anymore, so come on in and get ready for another great weekend of college football!
Shane, unfortunately, had something that he needed to attend to last minute; however, the loyal listeners need their picks and we intend to deliver. So enjoy a special episode devoted to nothing but degeneracy and stay tuned for the normal preview podcast tomorrow.
Happy Halloween, loyal listeners! This week, we break down a week in college football that had all kinds of major implications on the college football playoff picture. And dare we say it: Notre Dame is right in the thick of it all on the heels of yet another three possession victory against another top 15 team.
With Notre Dame's big win against Southern Cal, the Irish have found themselves right in the middle of the (early) playoff conversation. This week, the path gets no easier with another top 15 matchup against North Carolina State. This week, the rest of the college football world also has a few big games that could greatly affect the playoff picture as well.
It's getting quite fun and the Irish are right in the thick of it all.
This week in picks, Eddie and I try to build on one hell of a start to the second half. Make sure to come join the fun at herloyalsons.com/pickem!
Well, it actually happened: the Irish beat a ranked Southern Cal team for the first time since 1995. Multiple folks from the HLS staff come and chime in on this simply GLORIOUS podcast. Enjoy this one folks, we've been waiting for over 20 years for this one!
