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?

All that and we pick every game against the spread. Click the link below to enjoy!

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?

All that and we pick every game against the spread. Click the link below to enjoy!

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!

All that and we pick every game against the spread. Click the link below to enjoy!

Seattle U Basketball: Affordable

As long as Husky Football toils in its present state, late October becomes time to focus on basketball. For the second season running, Seattle is home to not one, but two Division One programs. Well, more or less. Seattle U is in year two of a five year reintegration to D1 hoops. I don’t exactly understand why this takes five years, but then I don’t exactly understand plenty of things.

With the Sonics now long gone to a major metropolis, Key Arena boasts a bevy of open dates. Seattle U basketball is happy to fill this void.

On a lark I looked up season ticket information for the Redhawks, and was surprised at the prices I saw.

Courtside seats (rows 2-4): $150 for the season. $11.54/game.
Center court seating: $112.50 for the season. $8.65/game.
Corner seating: $50 for the season. $3.85/game.
Behind the basket: $40 for the season. $3.08/game.
Student admission free with Seattle U ID.

Even considering the (ahem) limited appeal of D1 purgatory basketball, the thought of paying high school basketball prices to see quasi-top-level college hoops is appealing. So much so that I had to double check. “The ticket prices you quoted are correct,” confirmed Seattle U SID Jason Behenna. Looks like I CAN read for comprehension. Take that, LSAT!

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!

12.19.2013 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Tosh Lupoi scandal and bowl preview

Tosh Lupoi allegedly gave a kid some money to help him get his grades up so the kid could get into college. THE NERVE! What it means for USC and Washington (spoiler: nothing).

We pick all the bowl games using a highly scientific “Who’s happy to be here?” metric. Click the link below to enjoy!

12.04.2013 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Sark to USC, Washington open

Any news this week? Ol’ Sarky jumped ship back (scare quotes) home (/scare quotes) to USC leaving the puppy Dawgs in the lurch. Mora spurns an opportunity to go to UW. We spend the better part of an hour sorting through Sark, Mora, and various potential Washington coaches.

Oh and there were games last week! UW won the Apple Cup. The reeling Ducks nipped the reeling Beavs in the Civil War. Arizona State looked flat out dominant in beating Arizona in the Territorial Cup. And some other shit. SARK!

We pick the Pac-12 Championship game against the spread, but be real: It’s Sark Week. Click the link below to enjoy!
