Look, I know that there is a 24 hour celebration/mourning period, but that timeline doesn’t apply for semi-retired-bloggers-that-like-to-still-podcast-even-when-they-are-on-vacation. At least, that’s the story that I’m going with here.
In all honesty, the Sunday night kickoff is the bigger culprit for picking at week one scabs. I probably could have pulled off a Sunday recording/Monday release with a normal Saturday schedule, even with vacation and, I hope to have that kind of schedule going forward. But, hey, it is what is it. I have thoughts. They went into a microphone and here we are.
Considering that I had many thoughts on week one overall and that it’s a bit hard to keep up on the news reel, this episode is entirely focused on the week that was. Picks with EddieMac serve as the bridge for the week ahead. Apologies in advance for the slate being complete garbage. Sadly, not all weeks can be a buffet of awesome.
Also, apologies in advance for the slight echo in the audio this week. My “studio” this week was my brother and sister-in-law’s laundry room. I’m not joking.
Yes, that step ladder is there so I can actually reach my microphone. I wish I was making that up.
Texan by birth, Irish by choice.
Born and raised in the great state of Texas, Tex is a first-generation Domer and a former student manager. After graduation, he left the cold winters of South Bend behind and returned back to his home state with a computer engineering degree in tow. Missing the daily grind of working football practices and talking football with fellow Irish fans every day, he took to blogging, a path which eventually led him to Her Loyal Sons. Continuously diving into stats and game film, Tex strives to break down every aspect of Fighting Irish football--even though it's determined to kill him.
