Well, the first loss came sooner than anyone wanted it to. Even worse, Shane is unable to join this episode thanks to Hurricane Irma. So Tex rolls solo recapping the week that was in college football and the rough ND loss against Georgia.
With Irma barrelling towards Shane's home of Florida, we did everything we could to get the preview episode out. Come hear our breakdown of some of the biggest games of the week, including Notre Dame vs. Georgia. Plus, picks with Eddie and y'all should really come pick against us in our pool. We will split the season up into segments so don't worry if you missed week one, come on in!
College football is finally upon us! Welcome to our new day for our preview episodes. Be sure to join us every Thursday during the season as we preview the upcoming week of college football, including, of course Notre Dame. This year, we hope that you also join Eddie and I in our picks. So see if you can do better than us, head over here to join our pool for free.
Shane may be out again, but Jack Jorgensen returns to the show to chat college football, Florida suspensions, nuetral site games, an outsider's perspective on Notre Dame, and a little bit of pro wrestling, including a brief education on the wonder that is Daryl. Plus, a few quick words on some insight into what will be on the jumbotron this season as well as some thoughts on this past weekend's events in Charlottesville.
In this week's episode, we are joined by Chris Wilson (@rakesofmallow) of the Notre Dame Football newsletter, The Rakes Report. We kick back and drink the blue and gold Kool-aid as we get his thoughts on the upcoming Notre Dame season as fall camp kicks off. Plus, a SEC rivalry goes from gridiron to strip club, YouTube monetization becomes a NCAA violation, Notre Dame debuts some new media rules, and Shane brings in some Vegas lines regarding coach firings.
This week's cold open, in honor of Ara Parseghian, comes from this WatchND video and we highly recommend that you watch BK's speech in its entirety.
Shane may be out this week, but we still have a a great show for you! Last week was full of great news for Notre Dame football recruiting and Kevin Sinclair from Irish Illustrated helps break it all down as well as giving his insight into the crazy world of covering recruiting. There's some great nuggets of information in this episode, for example: the different way that Stanford approaches recruiting than Notre Dame.
On this episode, we are happy to have Tyler James from the South Bend Tribune and NDInsider.com join us (@ 17:49) to preview the upcoming Irish football season and talk about the NDInsider preview magazine (which you can buy here). We also talk Ashton White's depature from the ND football program and Ole Miss dismissing Hugh Freeze over a very unfortunate (and stupid) phone call.
