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!

Nice Knowing You, Ernie Kent

Sager Bombs

Oh Ernie… you’re so fucked.  Remember when they wanted to fire you last year?  That team still made the tourney.  This year your own paper is writing stories with headlines like “Ducks lose again, but not too badly” and they aren’t trying to be funny.  Acceptance has set in.  The team is horrible. 

What makes it worse is that the cupboard ain’t entirely bare in Eugene.  They have veterans who flat out aren’t getting it done – I’m looking at you Joevan Catron and Tajuan Porter.  The highly touted freshman are proving to need a little time to figure out the college game, and the team attitude is about 3 stink faces below your average episode of The Hills. 

Two huge non-hoop factors lurk over the program as well.  They’re moving into an awesome new gym next year, apparently because they hate the home court advantage McArthur Court gave them.  They aren’t selling out games this season.  Not even close.  They might want a new coach just for the buzz.  Even worse, they’re below the horrible OSU Beavs and their coach Craig “please, ask me how I know Obama again” Robinson.  Talent wise, OSU is the worst team in the conference and it’s not really close.  But the cross-state rival has kids doing all the little things on the court that you need to do to win games (although if you’re winning running the Princeton O you can basically assume this is the case).  This kind of heart and hustle were the things that Oregon had they were just coming out of their decade long coma.  Seeing at their disregarded little brother just makes the Oregon freefall that much more embarassing.

Anyways, sorry Ernie.  Really not likely you’ll be around to see the new gym unless you’re buying a ticket…  if you even make it through the season.

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!

12.13.2013 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Chris Petersen to UW

Blah blah Stanford won the conference again. Who cares? Washington dumped Sark on USC and hired one of the top coaches in all of college. We celebrate.

We also pick the All Condiment team for the second or third time ever. Exciting!

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!

11.28.2013 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Thanksgiving Day Special

Real quick show as we sneak away from our families to spend not quite 20 minutes talking about rivalry week in the Pac-12.

Big development is that we christen the Colorado and Utah game: The Battle for the Pickaxe.

11.20.2013 Pac-12 Football Podcast – The Great Sark Debate

We go almost an hour (AN HOUR) this week. Discussion includes the Orgeron Trojans, Mariota as a passer, the remarkable decline in the accuracy of our picks, and – most of all – debating the future of Steve Sarkisian at Washington.

Will the Dawgs show up on the road in Corvallis? I SAY YES. Who wins the bowl-eligibility showdown in Pullman between the Utes and the Cougs? WE SAY SOMEBODY. Oh, and why the fuck is Idaho playing at Florida State this week? If any Vandals get injured in this farce, they and their parents ought to be able to sue.

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