So what do you do as a podcast when you need to preview a game against a terrible opponent after a terrible loss? Well, Shane and I decided to bring you you the most incredible, hard-hitting, most in-depth preview for Duke possible.
If you thought that last sentence was truthful, you are going to be very disappointed.
Look, there really isn’t much to say about this one and it’s not for lack of caring or throwing the towel in on the season. This week all eyes are focused internally and just how Notre Dame will rebound after the disaster that was last week.
Of course, the usual news roundup and picks with EddieMac are here as well. Strap in and get your head right for another weekend of college football with us.
I would love to stop reporting crimes like this. I believe there has been only one week in which a sex crime hasn’t been in the college football news cycle this season.

In even happier news, Southern Cal is a full-blown tire fire. A homesick kid wanting to transfer somehow turned into a rumor that he decked Clay Helton and got kicked off the team. There’s loads of other rumors floating around that don’t really deserve the link, but do bask in the warm glow of the fire something out of Southern Cal.
Addendum! As Shane mentioned, here’s grown men dressing knights beating the shit out of each other in a boxing ring. And, as Eddie mentioned, here’s Leonard Fournette murdering someone via stiff arm:
