Week 3 Pac-10 Hoops Preview

I figure with UW out to a 1-3 conference start I ought to bring back last season’s Pac-10 Hoops Preview posts. To shake things up at least. I follow my favorite soccer team like a civilized sports fan. I check the score of Everton’s game after it happens. If they win? I read it. If […]

12.08.09 Pac-10 Football Podcast – Bowl preview edition

Hey, we made it to a bowl preview show! It’s a miracle. We didn’t talk about Charlie Weis kind of accusing Pete Carroll of banging grad students in Malibu; Jake Locker staying or going; or, whether or not Cal is dumb enough to fire Tedford. We did talk about Washington embarrassing Cal, the upcoming bowl […]

12.01.09 Pac-10 Football Podcast – Civil War for the Roses

Washington wins! Washington wins! Oh my god Washington wins! Was the Apple Cup particularly well played? No. In fact, WSU was ridiculously awful. Washington honestly should have scored more, but I’ll take the first rivalry shutout of my lifetime happily. Fuck you, Cougars. But who cares about those two losers? We had bowl eligible teams […]

11.24.09 Pac-10 Football Podcast – Apples!

Another year. Another pillow fight between the two horseshit Pac-10 teams from the state of Washington. Fuck this sport. Does UCLA have what it takes to upset a closer-to-average USC team? Can Notre Dame find enough time away from their busy getting-punched-in-the-face schedule to put up a fight against Stanford? Washington has to win, right? […]

11.03.09 Pac-10 Football Podcast – Oregon dismantles USC

The Jeremiah Masoli spread is now invincible. Pete Carroll has finally met an opponent that may shake him from his ultra vanilla offense and defense. Scheme matters again in the Pac-10. Oregon has it and USC does not. Is Stanford a trap game for Oregon? Should Jeff Tedford be fired for that halfback pass call […]

10.20.09 Pac-10 Football Podcast – Arizona and Stanford show America what the Pac-10 is about

43-38. Both quarterbacks throwing for over 400 yards. Arizona and Stanford played the beautiful game last Saturday in Tucson. I really am passionate about the football played in this conference. I think it’s the best. The SEC is nice, but the Pac-10 has always had more innovative/effective offenses. Florida’s 23-20 win over Arkansas was alright, […]

10.06.09 Pac-10 Football Podcast – Time to take Stanford seriously?

We now live in an America where Jahvid Best has had less than four yards per carry in each of his last two games. On what can I rely, universe?!? Oh yeah, WSU lost by a lot at Oregon. Washington was unable to move the ball forward three feet despite numerous opportunities. Is Stanford a […]

09.29.09 Pac-10 Football Podcast – Oregon beats down Cal

So, uh…about those Huskies. Not exactly where we thought they were. But really nobody was where we thought they were last week. Fig Jam and I picked every game wrong against the spread. Every single game. This week? Wholesale changes to our picking process to hedge against a similar outcome! Should WSU have burned Jeff […]

09.22.09 Pac-10 Football Podcast – Locker, Huskies Arrive

Much to say as Washington gets their biggest win since Miami in 2000. Jake Locker came up with two throws on that final drive that Husky fans will talk about for years. UW’s previously maligned kicking game found a new Folk Hero (thanks Dr. Fig Jam) as young master Erik came of age in a […]

08.25.09 Pac-10 Football Podcast

Fig Jam and I are back with the last of the game-free preview shows. That’s right: next week we’re picking games! But first, we check out the injury bug hitting Pac-10 camps. What are the prognoses for Rob Grankowski, Micah Kia, Armand Armstead, and Jahvid Best? How are UW’s special teams shaping up? All this […]
