The Virtual Tailgate (sports)

I'll just say it here, this thing came off the rails well before the recorded parts you will hear.  I've got another whole podcast in that recording about 80s TV and what shows were for "girls" versus "guys"

I promise we get to some football, but there are a lot of newly-minted inside jokes there too.

Game of the Week: Jarred copped out - the rest of us try to go with UNC-Louisville.

Lots of Notre Dame talk and empty ACC stadiums.

You'll probably laugh if you listen, even though it will mostly be at our expense.

We're Back! New season, same tune.  We discuss offseason troubles and the upcoming games.  Some wild predictions about the season get tossed about, and Jarred has already refused to pick a winner in our Pick'em.  The more things change, you know?

Who's going where? Is the ACC going to be a basketball conference? Is it already?  We don't know the answers but we like to speculate!

This week, Jarred's connection goes walkabout, Geoff regrets firing his old stats guy in the middle of the season, and we all lose it during a discussion of Central Michigan.

Before we get started on the football, we give Jarred a chance to make amends over his disbelief in the existence of the Golden Panther.  Results were....less than ideal.

We finally get to last week's games:

Georgia Tech @ NC State
Idaho @ Virginia
Wake Forest @ Boston College
Towson @ Maryland
North Carolina @ East Carolina
Duke @ Florida International
Bethune-Cookman @ Miami
Clemson @ Virginia Tech
