What: EDSBS LIVE online radio Click that or the banner thingy to your right to listen...because Ragin Cajun Rebel is our co-host tonight while Peter Bean is taking "a German holiday" in Paris and looking to become the second Texan to make France its bitch. And unlike Lance Armstrong, Peter can do all the doping he wants.
Where: At NowLive, where you can chat with each other and the show hosts throughout the broadcast in the online forum (which has gotten damn lively). To phone in to the show, just call (310) 984-7600.
What: Tonight's special guest is...Johnny Hangover! Actually, it will be Ragin Cajun Rebel, our anchor leg guest who will kindly fill in for Peter tonight. Expect...SPICE, since we will be appropriately discussing what's going to be hot and not hot for 2007 in college football.
Four Questions: As always, our four questions for the night.
1. OMG What's hoTT? We say the Mike Leach offense, which after years of skepticism is slowly sinking into programs in desperate need of offensive life (Baylor, Arizona, etc.)
We'll also say the WAC, since writers can now name TWO whole teams of substance from the conference after Hawaii beat the daylights out of a hobbled ASU team in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl last year.
2. OMG What is soooo not hooooottttttt? Notre Dame, year three of Robot Geniushood:
new quarterback, new-look defense, less offensive fireworks=grumbles grumbles grumbles. Plus departure of fabulously ab'd Brady Quinn instantly earns unhottness votes, since you're replacing a circuit boy with Gel Cadet Clausen and company.
3. Call your hot boomlet right now. By this, we mean trendspot on the far edge of reality. We're calling the hubbub surrounding Auburn/Alabama and buying stocks now. It's been a down-cycle for the Iron Bowl; invest now and your hype shares are sure to blossom into massive profits.
Also dibs on any rivalry game Stanford plays this year, where hype points will skyrocket pending Jim "I BOW TO NO MAN" Harbaugh's pregame taunting of opponent.
4. Pick your trend for 2007. Peter O'Toole drunk jokes, though those never really go out of style. Actually, and we mean this seriously--short shorts and pulled up socks rearing their ugly head in hipster quarters around the nation. Prepare to see more of your hip cousin's inner thigh than you ever really wanted to see, junior.
See you tonight.
