Chris Vernon of 730 Fox Sports Radio Memphis makes his triumphant return to the college football podcast for Week 7.
The upcoming weekend doesn’t offer much in the way of intriguing games, but the show was undeterred, cheering itself up over the lack of top games by talking Oregon cheerleaders.
Whether Urban Meyer should choose to coach Ohio State or Penn State is discussed right off the bat, as is how long the Buckeye administration should wait before chopping Luke Fickell off at the knees and negotiating with Meyer. Penn State, obviously, can’t do much until Joe Paterno makes a decision.
The Michigan-Michigan State rivalry is mentioned in the national context of big and little brother games – MSU has won three consecutive and is favored in this one yet still struggles to shake off the stigma.
Whether anyone can ever take a Ron Zook team seriously (Illinois is ranked 16th) is debated as well as whether the Big East should tear up the map and bring in Boise State.
Chris tries to recall a single significant Big East football game while lamenting the loss of the league’s hoop culture. Dan counters with the epic WVU meltdown to Pitt that actually impacted schools and careers across the country, including LSU, Ohio State, Michigan, Terrelle Pryor, Jim Tressel and so on.
Chris makes his ironclad prediction for the BCS title game matchup: Alabama vs. Wisconsin based on the odds of being unbeaten. Both wonder if anyone will care that Stanford could wind up going 26-1 during the last two years with the No. 1 quarterback in the country and never having a shot to play for the title. Answer: Other than Larry Scott, probably not.
Give it a listen, it’s free.
