40 FOR 40 RETURNS. Yes, we’re going to do a podcast preview for every single bowl game. No, these podcasts have no obligations to actually address the game beyond a series of random associations with the game, and perhaps a mention of the teams playing. Yes: We have Holly Anderson joining us via the usually horrendous New York Skype connection.

The New Mexico Bowl is this Saturday, and features WOW LOOK AT THAT New Mexico, who usually plays in this bowl, and usually loses. New Mexico won eight games this year, which is a spectacular turnaround for late blooming football genius Bob Davie. (He had never been a head coach before this, ever, not anywhere.)

The other team is UTSA, who are definitely a bowl-eligible football team.

You can listen to all of these via Art19, though we’re going to post them separately in order to space them out a bit. Work ahead or don’t, this is independent study, which is a good way to sum up how bowl season works. Turn your homework in or don’t, your professor is vaping in the back of a Suburu Outback parked on a deserted beach in the Florida panhandle.
