SHUTDOWN FULLCAST 3.17: THE BIG 12 EPISODE

New, 827 comments

I'M SPENCER HALL. NO, I'M SPENCER HALL.

This week's Shutdown Fullcast covers the Big 12, a conference of such astonishing depth and interest we didn't have time to get to reader questions. We'll double down on them next week, but we apologize: Iowa State is JUST that fascinating.

Topics covered:

--The least coordinated intro to the podcast ever, and an analysis of the Jade Helm defense Texas Tech will use this fall

--Rage-inducing sports video games (helllloooooo FIFA) and the time Ryan's friend threw a controller so hard that he flooded his apartment after a controversial MarioKart ending

--Why playing in Ames on a Thursday or Friday night is...is fine, actually.

--How you should just not watch Texas this year and come back in 2016

--Did Oklahoma fix the wrong side of the ball? (By asking that we're pretty much saying yes, yes they did)

--Texas Tech is the most ideologically pure team in the Big 12

--Why TCU will just try to average more points on offense this year than the New York Knicks

--WVU, the ruiners of all ruiners (again)

--A brief discussion of the way Charlie Weis stole money from another team and left them bereft and more broken than Kansas football usually is
