09.21.2016 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Cal’s Texans Beat Texas

How about Sonny Dykes and Davis Webb? Has to feel good to get one over on the state school with its own network. WSU is off the schnide, ASU looks troubled against UTSA, and Stanford contributed to an impending Clay Helton implosion in Troy. Wait, Oregon appears to be going for two again. It failed.

This week? More conference games! Duckaroos host Colorado. Dawgs travel to Arizona. USC takes a freshman qb to Utah. This will end well for them! We pick every game against the spread. Click the link below to enjoy!

09.15.2016 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Leach hates participation trophies, accountability

Cougarinos bungled the clock late at Boise, thwarting their customarily competent comeback. Arizona State and Texas Tech shot it the fuck out in Tempe. Arizona struggled with Grambling State. Otherwise? Chalky, boring week in the Pac-12.

Fig Jam thinks Mike Leach should look in the mirror. I use Leach as a vessel to rail against baby boomers. We like UW’s non-conference schedule as a confidence builder.

Colorado and Michigan are running ’94 back! USC is going to Stanford! Oregon is going to Nebraska! These threaten to be games! We pick every Pac-12 game against the spread. Click the link below to enjoy!

09.07.2016 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Mixed Bag Out of the Gate

Colorado and Washington good. Oregon, Stanford, Utah fine. Oregon State fine in a loss. UCLA fair. USC and Washington State bad.

Are the Trojans in trouble? Can WSU rebound again from an FCS loss? Will Washington have first place votes in the AP poll before they play a viable opponent? All this and we pick every game against the spread. Click the link below to enjoy!

Here Are Some Obligatory Cougar Jokes

Manny Faces

Since, you know, it’s The Apple Cup and all, here some gnarly burns you can throw around the office to ramp-up this epic rivalry.  We will start with an oldie but goodie…

It seems there was this fellow named Smythe who graduated from the Washington State University. He had decided to seek employment as a salesman for a haberdashery located in the city of Seattle. He procured an interview with the owner, one Mr. Longfellow, the following morning. Smythe arrived at Longfellow’s and took a seat in the parlor. Longfellow entered the room and said with a booming baritone, “I will hire thee immediately if you just name for me the Patron Saint of Haberdashers.” Smythe stood up and wagged his finger, “Why that would be Saint Louis XI!” he exclaimed. Longfellow chortled, “You imbecile, the Patron Saint of Haberdashers is Saint Louis IX, I can clearly see you were educated at an inferior university.” He then tossed out this zinger of a farewell, “and were I like thee, I would throw myself away in the rubbish bin.”

And it only goes downhill from here…

08.31.2016 Pac-12 Football Podcasts – Welcome Back Football!

That’s one way to do it! Cal took care of Hawaii but not the spread in Australia AND WE’RE OFF.

Dawgs are overrated, and otherwise we don’t know much about anything. I rant about ESPN using remote announcers for Hawaii – Cal even though I didn’t know if that was the case (IT TURNED OUT IT WAS). We pick some games. You know how this works. We pick every game against the spread. Click the link below to enjoy!

12.03.2015 Pac-12 Football Podcast – USC with another underwhelming hire

Dawgs dominated a backup qb in the Apple Cup. Upon review the game counts and WSU sucks. Fig Jam delights in Mike Leach winning coach of the year for a season that would get you fired at other Pac-12 programs. USC made a blech hire in Clay Helton. Other games were played and we talk about them. Then we pick the title game against the spread.

11.26.2015 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Dawgs Stomp Oregon State Who Cares

Washington demolished Oregon State in Corvallis and nobody gives a shit b/c you should. They’re bad. If you have any claim to being a real team that’s what should happen. Luke Falk went out of his second straight game w/ apparent head trauma. I think he’s going to play against UW but Fig Jam disagrees. Either way I hope he doesn’t injure his brain further.

USC and UCLA battle it out for LA and the Pac-12 South. Apple Cup. Civil War. Whatever Utah-Colorado is. We pick every game against the spread. Click the link below to enjoy!

11.18.2015 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Petersen loses a lot for an elite coach

Dawgs gag one in the desert, running the futility streak against ASU to 14 ridiculous years. Go figure, ya know? Duckaroos get over on Stanford. Cougarinos come up big in the clutch against the Fighting Moras. And USC no show wins against meek Colorado. The South is up for grabs between USC, UCLA, and Utah. Who cares tho. The relevant players in the North need Cal to beat Stanford. Likely? NO! But THAT’s why they play the games! (Cal will lose.)

11.12.2015 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Gotta Love These Cougarinos

Well, I have to love these Cougs at least. Fig Jam not so much. WSU lost the opener to Portland State and are now bowl eligible after putting it on ASU. Washington blew a winnable game against Utah. Some other shit happened. Who gives a shit.

11.05.2015 Pac-12 Football Podcast – Washington Eviscerates A Conference Opponent For Once

Hey how about them Dawgs for once? 49-3 domination of Rich Rodriguez and his wild cats. Oregon won a 3OT thriller in Tempe. UCLA chokewinned against Colorado. Cougarinos gave Stanford all they wanted but lost in the end. Such is life.

10.30.2015 Pac-12 Football Podcast – USC curbstomps Utah

This is being posted during triple overtime of Oregon at ASU. Ducks won on an interception after ASU inexplicably passed back to back on first and goal inside the five. Nice play calling. Really mitigated Oregon’s terrible trick play calling. Fire everyone on both teams. ASU ran about twice as many plays as Oregon in this game btw.

UW got run by Stanford. We suck.
