With the Alabama Crimson Tide in the books as this season's BCS national champion, Ty Hildenbrandt and Dan Rubenstein reconvene to review the The Game of the Century (of January) and discuss Jordan Jefferson's curious shuffle pass and Alabama's unbelievable defensive effort.
Plus, The Solid Verbal guys rehash their favorite moments from bowl season, offer congratulations to the winners of their postseason pools, and recap the most exciting thing to happen during the championship game -- a taco-eating contest in California.
Feeling the need to pick out the perfect holiday gift for diehard college football fans, The Solid Verbal invited a special guest on this week's pod: ESPN's Chris Fowler.
Fowler reflects on some of his favorite moments from the 2011 regular season and also rehashes the meteoric rise of College GameDay, which is now the preeminent college football show on television. Plus, Ty Hildenbrandt and Dan Rubenstein chat with Fowler about direction of his alma mater's football program, the controversial ending to the 1991 Orange Bowl, and the future of American tennis.
In this week's pod, Ty Hildenbrandt and Dan Rubenstein welcome Lowell Galindo to the program to discuss Mack Brown's future in Austin and Texas A&M's move to the SEC. He also answers a question some Longhorns fans may not want to hear: Should the University of Texas feel threatened by the rise of other, non-traditional Big 12 powers?
Also, The Solid Verbal guys talk to Galindo about his windsor knots, fireside chats with Joey Harrington, and his one-liner at a Texas football banquet. Plus, Dan lays out his plan to become the T. Boone Pickens of San Diego State when he, one day, earns a billion dollars.
College football's regular season may have ended, but that doesn't mean The Solid Verbal has any plans of ceasing transmission. With only one short week until bowl season kicks into high gear, Ty Hildenbrandt and Dan Rubenstein welcome Scott Van Pelt to the show to discuss the LSU-Alabama rematch, the long-term impact of conference realignment, and the curious decision by UCLA to hire Jim Mora Jr.
Plus, the boys break down Saturday's Heisman Trophy ceremony, Randy Edsall's first year at Maryland, where to buy silver suits, and how to block kicks in NCAA '12.
College football's eighth week came and went, but not without some serious stomach punches for a few prominent programs and fan bases. In today's pod, The Solid Verbal breaks down Kirk Cousins' Hail Mary, Oklahoma's poor showing, and the possibility of a BCS rematch between LSU and Alabama.
Plus, Ty Hildenbrandt and Dan Rubenstein discuss James Franklin's casual dress Saturday, Dayne Crist's bad karma, and Nick Foles' winning effort.
In the wake of an anticlimactic Red River Rivalry game, Ty Hildenbrandt and Dan Rubenstein review college football’s sixth week. They discuss another Honey Badger attack, the Urban Meyer-to-Penn State rumors, and Texas A&M’s generous defense.
Hildenbrandt and Rubenstein also rank the the top five teams in the ACC, take a stand against celebration penalties, and analyze Brady Hoke’s “QB Eagles” treatment of Denard Robinson. Plus, more listener voice messages.
After college football's fifth week, Ty Hildenbrandt and Dan Rubenstein wonder if Wisconsin will run the table in the Big Ten, if Trent Richardson has a physical switch that starts his engine, and what happened to the old Clemson that always fell short in big games.
Hildenbrandt and Rubenstein also discuss the raging tire fire at Ohio State, Texas A&M's second half collapses, Stephen Garcia's value in a Bad Quarterback League, and yet another gritty performance by Nick Foles in a losing effort. And, of course, more reverbs from listeners.
With college football’s fourth week in the books, Ty Hildenbrandt and Dan Rubenstein break down the inevitability of a “national semifinal” between LSU and Alabama, and discuss the easiest way to cure South Carolina’s quarterback woes.
They also wonder if anyone has been keeping tabs on Bill Stewart, when Denard Robinson will physically expire, how many head coaching jobs Lane Kiffin will have in his career, and why coaches insist on throwing red zone fades with bad quarterbacks. Plus, another batch of listener voicemails.
