Ty Hildenbrant from The Solid Verbal joins the Extra Life effort to talk college football, Notre Dame football, 90's retro sports gaming, and we engage in a fun coach-speak bit. I also want to thank Dan & Ty for their generous donation to the Extra Life effort as well. Stay solid, y'all.
As we mentioned on the last football-related HLS podcast episode, THE ELITE would do a post-show. The topic 100% devolved into stupid drunk jokes and pro wrestling. We apologize in advance, but you knew this was going to happen, right?
We kick off the Extra Life interview series with the podcast that inspired me to take this crazy journey: Limit Break Radio. Nate, Robbie, and Nika joined me to discuss Extra Life, their shows (yes, plural, they also do Final Encounter Cast and a nationally syndicated gaming and eSports show, Checkpoint Radio), Final Fantasy, and gaming.
Be sure to check them out!
Loyal listeners, the podcast feed is going to take a short five episode detour (not including this one). As you've heard throughout the past few shows, I have participated in an event called Extra Life to benefit the Children's Miracle Network in memory of a young man named Aven. I did multiple interviews for my 24-plus hour marathon and wanted to share them with you in case you missed them.
Jack and Eddie return for another ELITE podcast. We have coaching moves, championship weekend recaps, bowl selection thoughts, Notre Dame takes, and kicking Jack repeatedly in the junk for Florida State's terrible 6-6 campaign. Oh, and we have a mystery Army/Navy pick thrown in. This is the only episode of the week so get on it!
It's conference championship week, but the insanity of the silly season of coaching searches has been doing its damnedest to take the spotlight, especially if you're Tennessee or Arizona State. We have picks and previews for all the biggest games this weekend, including Florida State's desperate attempt to keep their bowl streak alive, plus the latest (at least at the time of recording) coaching news and rumors.
The silly season of coaching hires and fires is underway now that the regular season has ended. With Notre Dame having a disappointing loss to Stanford, many ND fans would happily jump into that fray. After looking at the national picture, Tex fields live questions from the HLS Discord chat to talk through just where to go from here.
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.
