10.24.2014 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Washington Loses to Oregon (Again)

At this point I’m used to it. Some other games happened also.

Can UW jump up and get ASU at home this weekend? I say yes! Is UW closer to Oregon? Not on the scoreboard my friend, but…I say yes! We pick every game against the spread.

10.16.2014 Pac-12 Football Podcast – The Annual “Talk Ourselves Into Thinking UW Has A Shot” Podcast

USC almost blew it late again against Arizona. Oregon crushed a UCLA team we’ve been telling you is terrible all season. Some other games happened. Who gives a shit? It’s UW-Oregon week!

Like the desperate man I am, I go into directionless, long-winded rants in an effort to convince myself that this is the year that Washington beats Oregon. The best I ultimately get to is that for the first time in a decade, we have a legitimate shot. That’s how reduced I am. Go Dawgs! Elsewhere, other games are happening. I don’t care about those games. This Saturday brings the annual opportunity for the only result that will make me care about college football like I did when I was a student. Bow Down. Please. For fucking once.

10.09.2014 Pac-12 Football Podcast – This Conference is Insane

Holy shit what a week of Pac-12 Football. Down goes Oregon on Thursday! Down goes USC on a hail mary! Down goes UCLA to Utah! Down go the Cougs!

Maybe the last one wasn’t surprising, but the manner of it was inexplicable even for WSU.

Oregon or UCLA is a loser out of the playoff/loser out of the Heisman special? Is it possible that Sark doesn’t get USC bowl eligible? Is Stanford guaranteed to cover now that Fig Jam and I have declared the Cougarinos +17 in Palo Alto to be THE BIGGEST GAMBLING LOCK IN THE HISTORY OF OUR PODCAST?

All that and we pick every game against the spread. Including that WSU lock. Pretend to be surprised when you hear it. Click the link below to enjoy!

ASU v. UW Predictions: Am I missing something?

Fig Jam

The line on the Arizona State v. Washington game this week opened at ASU -3.5.   As of this morning, it is ASU -6.5 .  So a lot of action on the Sun Devils in this one.

Additionally, Ted Miller picked ASU to win the game 24-20, based largely on their talent on defense.  Miller states that ASU has a “huge advantage” on defense. 

Nick Daschel also picks ASU in this one 23-20, saying that ASU’s defense might be the “nastiest” that UW has faced all season (implication that ASU’s D is nastier than LSU’s, and USC’s, and Arizona’s, and Notre Dame’s). 

So, that’s the consensus in this game I guess.  ASU over UW.  Vegas has been on that and the two guys who pay the most attention to the Pac-10 believe that as well.  I have to be honest, I am a little perplexed.  I realize that I am a husky fan, so take everything in this post with a grain of salt, but here’s why I am confused with the predictions for this game:

10.02.2014 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Chris Petersen’s stupid fake punt

Washington hung in with Stanford before affirmatively screwing up in a game that came down to who screwed up first. Stanford sucks. UCLA demolished a Taylor Kelly-less ASU squad for an “impressive” win against a ranked opponent. UCLA sucks. Utah fell back to earth a week after beating (terrible) Michigan in Ann Arbor, blowing a big lead to the Cougs at home. Utah sucks. Everybody sucks except Oregon. JK. Oregon sucks.

Can the Cougs keep the roll going against a spry Cal outfit? Can Stanford take their non-offense to South Bend and get a result? How bad is Oregon going to punish Arizona to avenge Arizona brutalization of Oregon in 2013? Never forget that game btw, it was sweet.

09.25.2014 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Cal Collapses in Tuscon

Arizona stormed back to steal one from Cal on a last second hail mary in Tuscon. That game is a comfy clubhouse leader for game of the year. Unreal. Cal led 31-13 in the fourth quarter and 45-30 with under four minutes to play. That stings. The refs blew an obvious PI killing WSU’s late drive as Oregon held on to beat the Cougs in Pullman by a mere touchdown.

Will Oregon’s o-line be their undoing? Will Washington get off the bus against Stanford? Can Cal recover from an all-time gag job? Will WSU harness momentum from their strong performance against the Ducks, or will Utah ride the momentum of beating once-proud Michigan in the Big House?

09.17.2014 Pac-12 Football Podcast – The South Will Writhe Again

Since the inception of the two division Pac-12, the North has run the show via Oregon or Stanford. It looks like this year will be more of the same. South favorites ASU, UCLA, and USC had the following Saturdays: star qb gets injured, star qb gets injured, and #RoadSark special inexplicable loss.

Going forward, can these zany Cougs give the Ducks a game in Pullman? Can Cal make a statement of intent against a potentially ineffective Arizona squad? Is Coach Petersen right to fear the passing attack of Georgia State?

09.11.2014 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Sark Bests Shaw In Suck-Off

Sark’s a mediocre coach – many know this. Shaw’s a mediocre coach – few know this. The game has passed Leach’s air raid by – many know this. Dykes’ air raid is evolving and maybe potent – few know this. Mora sucks – this much we’re all clear on.

This week we preview a craptastic slate of games. Will the Cougs get their win for the year against Portland State? Will Washington put good offense and defense together against Illinois? Will Sark’s Trojans get off the bus on the east coast? All legitimate questions!

08.28.2014 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Football is Back!

Fig Jam and Constable Echelon exult in the return of meaningful football games. Sark’s Trojans saved a drowning child, until they didn’t. WSU’s bookstore Couged a planner. Jeff Lindquist is a 17.5 road favorite.

1.27.2014 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Never Forget the New Mexico Bowl

Remember the New Mexico Bowl? We do.

We wrap up our season of terribly picking Pac-12 games against the spread by reviewing all the bowl action. Special attention is paid to WSU and UW. We are nothing but our biases.

We have an interesting sidebar about whether winning a big college football game should be the best day of your life, and what else should be in the “best day” discussion. We also note UW’s surprising success on the hardwood, and take a final opportunity for the year to poke fun at awful WSU hoops and their awful attendance from their awful fans (while noting here that to a man every WSU fan I’ve personally met is a fine upstanding person.)

We are nothing but our biases x2. Click the link below to enjoy!
