Friend of the podcast, Jack Jorgensen, had an idea about both him and Eddie coming on for the same episode. On the heels of an insane bye week for ND, and Shane still out, this happens and it's just too sweeeeeeeeeet...granted Eddie doesn't join the show from his drunken stupor until a full hour in, but hey, it still happened!
Be Elite. Listen to the whole thing. Be a loyal listener f-f-f-f-for life.
...we apologize in advance.

Notre Dame is on a bye and there are no huge top-25-on-top-25 matchups, but that doesn't mean there aren't some games that shouldn't be on your radar (plus, we all know crazy never takes a week off in college football). Tex rolls solo again to detail six games that you should pay attention to, plus some follow ups on Gary Andersen walking away from buyout life & the FBI fraud investigation in college basketball. Plus, the first segment of our pick 'em comes to an end this week. Eddie and I take our final stabs before our first half victor is declared.

No Shane in this episode, but Tex picks himself by the bootstraps up after a long wedding weekend to roll solo. Frankly, that's more than some teams can say this week as there were some seismic upsets *cough*OklahomaAndMichigan*cough* this weekend. Mike Valenti gets some redemption in today's cold open, but you should go check out his full soapbox speech: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfVmlg4u1KY
Oh, and Notre Dame had another three possession victory on the road. Ho hum.

It only seems fitting that there's a tropical storm brewing in the Gulf that will eventually find its way towards the Carolinas as the Irish prepare for their annual road trip into the Carolinas. Thankfully, this one is both weak and scheduled to arrive well after the Irish depart. Third time's a charm! Anyways, come on in for a preview of week 6 in the world of college football, ND/UNC, picks with Eddie and a reminder to not get married in the fall.

We are becoming fans of this whole "blow out the opponent by three plus possessions" thing. Lots to talk about in this podcast, not just from the Notre Dame side, but a crazy week of college football that saw a top-five team *cough*SouthernCal*cough* crash and burn and another ranked team finds themselves embrassed at their own homecoming.

The title will make plenty of sense during the cold open. Tex is a wee bit punchdrunk from a long week of work and little sleep and did it ever show. Thank the good lord for the ability to edit in this medium. Anyways, it's time to preview week 5 which features three top 25 matchups and Notre Dame vs. Miami (OH). As always Eddie joins in for picks of the week and you can come join in on the fun via herloyalsons.com/pickem.

No cold open this time around, but we make up for it on the backend in this episode as Mr. PUCKER PUCKER PUCKER himself, Mike Valenti was at it again. You can find his (much shorter) newer rant that we had loads of fun with here: https://omny.fm/shows/the-valenti-show/mike-valenti-reacts-to-notre-dame-beating-msu
But that's at the end of the show. Before that bit of audio joy, we have a whole week of college football to recap, including Notre Dame's victory out in East Lansing.

After being treated to an unexpectedly crazy week 3, we take a look at what week 4 has to offer. The cupcakes have given way to conference matchups for most of college football. It's like moving day in golf. We should get a better idea of what many of the top teams in the nation are made of, leading to quite a few games landing on our radar to both preview and pick. Of course, Notre Dame has a large test looming themselves with a true road game in a hostile enviornment under the lights against Michigan State.
Get your football weekend started early with us!

515 yards on the ground. That. Happened. A lot of other insanity happened around in this projected "down" week of college football as well. I don't believe we've ever talked about so many games in a single sitting. Buckle up and start your week with us. Loads to talk about around the world of college football, plus discussing just what this Beantown Beatdown means going forward.

Irma is long gone and Shane has returned to the show! It's a little longer than usual as we catch up on news held over from earlier in the week. Plus, Shane is able to give his toughts on ND/Georgia while Tex talks a bit more about changes inside the stadium. Oh, and there's a ND game against some school outside of Boston.
It's time to get this show, and the season, back on track.
Also, have you joined the HLS Pick 'Em yet? If not, you should. Prizes available for each half of the season so it's not too late to join.
