New, 435 comments

AND ALSO SHIRTLESS PETE CARROLL, BECAUSE OOOH THAT MAN

OOOOOH THAT MAN

Ryan was sick for this edition of the Shutdown Fullcast, so we got ESPN's own Mina Kimes to join us to discuss an extremely important college football team: The Seattle Seahawks. Mina is now a featured member of the cast; Ryan has been reassigned to the mail room.

Other topics discussed:

  • Nick Saban gets out of a helicopter, which is the only actual news
  • A brief survey of the Washington Huskies’ recent dark years
  • Why the Pac-12’s deep relaxing chill might give college talent better prospects as professional football players
  • Pete Carroll’s ability to hypnotize the mothers of recruits with his sheer animal charisma
  • The discomfort of referring to anyone as a “twelve” outside of the context of professional wrestling
  • Mina discloses her experience playing The Undertaker in wrestling matches with her brother, and how she takes a Stunner
  • Celebrations in the football and how a discussion of Korean bat-flipping gets us to the story where Mina does the spinning Homer dance on the floor in the name of doing her job as a journalist
  • Proven: Jerry Rice is the best Twitter user on the planet
