AN EPISODE MOSTLY ABOUT CHEAP GROCERY STORES AND WILL MUSCHAMP AS A FAILED HOSTAGE NEGOTIATOR AND ALSO DON'T LOOK AT OREGON STATE

Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

You know, just because we say you're getting two podcasts in a week doesn't mean you're getting a good pair of podcasts. This isn't entirely our fault: the random assortment of teams came up with not one, but TWO teams in the state of Illinois. This was doomed from the start.

Topics include:

  • A quick discussion of the hierarchy of cheap-ass grocery store chains, and a reminder that HEB hands out beers to drink while you're shopping
  • A review of all the bad things that have happened to every single one of these teams
  • A framing of the group of dudes whose highest aspiration in life is to wake up and take a shit on a boat they own
  • A discussion of South Carolina football that devolves into "Will Muschamp, hostage negotiator"
  • How Northwestern is exactly the team to start 4-0 and end up 6-6
  • A thing that will get us at least two angry emails about how Chicago is a college football town, and then a wise decision to skip discussing Illinois entirely
  • Oregon State gets fast-forwarded to next year, let's just come back and see how they're doing next year, y'all, look away, this is definitely something for 2017 and eyes away, please
  • Ryan talks very seriously about Baylor, and not about football alone
