After a (far too long) hitaus, the HLS Podcast returns! We talk Bob Elliott, Bob Stoops, Malik Zaire, and the huge shift that college football coverage will see with the massive layoffs at major national media outlets like Fox Sports, ESPN, Yahoo, and Sports Illustrated.
Yes, we know, very original title. However, there is not one more fitting as this episode is all Notre Dame football. We talk Campus Crossroads/stadium renovation, the Jumbotron sighting, The Shirt (an HLS tradition unlike any other), and, of course the Blue/Gold game itself. So enjoy the last bit of actual football game-like activity until September with us!
No, that isn't a typo in the title and, yes, this is a podcast coming out on a completely different day than normal. Shane and Tex are back to come check in on everyone before the Notre Dame Blue/Gold Game and talk about how this spring has felt quite different from those before. Plus, some of the latest headlines from around the college football world, including lockers that could be the down payment of a house.
Spring practice has officially started for the Irish. Ryan and Shane take a look at the road to the Blue/Gold game and take a look at some interviews given by Jack Swarbrick and Brian Kelly. Lots of time is spent on BK's very...um..."sudden" change of heart. It's an Irish-heavy episode topped off with the best taco talk the internet has ever heard.
It seems the college football gods know exactly when Shane and Tex will record a podcast as Ole Miss and a massive notice of allegations hit the day they decide to hit record. Also, an update on the Minnesota suspensions, Baylor has another sex scandal in a different flavor, Saban dumps Sark, and the Irish keep their incredible recruiting momentum going by getting a hell of a start on the class of 2018.

Signing day has come and gone so Shane and Tex get back on the podcasting grind! Baylor hits the news in a big way once again, Lane Kiffin has the most unenthuiastic video of all time, and signing day continues to have the most ridiculous headlines possible. Plus, a look at the Irish's 2017 recruiting class and if a quote from Brian Kelly's presser could come back to haunt him.
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.
