Week 5 Recap | Bad Day for Collarbones

Saturday was an, ahem, bad day for collarbones. But Week 5 was good for sending a message if you're Clemson or Alabama or Washington State or Georgia. Less so if you're Tennessee. The boys recap the week that was.

Week 5 Preview | Rogue Agents

When the FBI gets involved with college sports, we've gotta dabble in hoops for a bit. But don't worry, we get to previewing a somewhat middling Week 5 slate -- it's still college football though. Hell of a Friday night game, too.

The 2016 Season in Review | Pac-12

Although we've come to the end of the road, we can't let the Pac-12 go. Today we close out the 2016 Season in Review series in . . . well, not style. But we do look back on the year that was for the P12, which vied for most disappointing conference of the year.

And new pants!

The 2016 Season in Review | SEC

It's March. If ever there were a time to take a cold, calculating look back at the 2016 season -- with four months of hindsight divorcing us from all emotional reaction -- it's now. So that's what we're doing, conference by conference. First up, the 2016 SEC Football recap. And, of course, the usual chatter about candy bars, preferred sandwich meats, summer pants and Polo-and-Slacks Guy.

Well, 230 days until the '17 college football season kicks off, give or take a couple of days. But first, one last one for the road: the 2017 National Championship recap, in which Deshaun Watson throws a football over those mountains, Jalen Hurts doesn't, and Luke and Canada rule on the pick play.

The coaching carousel continues to spin, spitting out new jobs for Jim Leavitt, Todd Orlando, Matt Canada, Phil Longo, Steve Sarkisian and the Brothers Kiffin.

Week 13 Preview | Arch Rivals - A Footbrawl

How will the CFP committee handle the Ohio State-Michigan-Penn State conundrum? We're finally days away from finding out, though Michigan can certainly save them plenty of difficulty by just winning the Game.

Week 11 Preview | Respite From Elections (Eventually)

This weekend, more than ever, we need college football. Mercifully, thanks to Luke and Canada, they're laying out the week's highlights before Saturday even arrives. And with only the mandatory few minutes of election analysis. Because who else would you go to for election analysis if not your THE College Football Podcasters?

01:03:36
2017-10-05 03:36:05 UTC 01:03:36
Week 10 Recap | The Upsets Finally Come

The upsets finally came on Saturday. Particularly in the SEC, where both Florida and Texas A&M took tumbles. The opposite happened in the Pac-12, where Washington, Colorado, Washington State and USC looked downright dominant. The boys recap those and more -- Louisville, Ohio State, Clemson and on down the line -- with a nice dose of over-the-top Oregon coaching rumors to boot.

Week 10 Preview | It's a Danny Etling World

The CFP committee's first rankings are out, and they're about what you'd expect. A little less Washingtony, perhaps, but it's an oversight that has little true bearing on the season. All that with a dash of Week 10 Preview (uninspiring as it may be). Listen up:

01:06:18
2017-10-05 03:36:05 UTC 01:06:18
Week 9 Recap | Craig Bohl Gives You Wings

What did Week 9 teach us? Boise State may not be headed for a New Year's bowl, for one.

Luke and CA break down the full weekend of action and forecast the first College Football Playoff committee rankings.

What if they held a World's Largest Outdoor (Cocktail) Party and inexplicably called it the "River City Showdown"? What if Michigan beat Michigan State by 60? What if Chip Kelly lands at Texas?

Another College Football Playoff contender goes down! But in the long run, does it actually matter? The boys break down the Penn State upset of Ohio State, Bama's continued dominance, the resurgence of Auburn, and the rest of the Week 8 slate. And no, the Ohio State loss might not matter.

Week 7 Recap | Bama's A'ight

Canada and Luke are back, like Jordan wearing the 4-5, and they've got a headful of knowledge to drop on close wins by Ohio State, Clemson and Louisville. And Washington State. And Arkansas. In fact, with the exception of a rolling Alabama, they were pretty much all close. What does that mean? [Cue CA and Luke talking.]

Week 7 Preview | Three Top 10s Tumble?
01:02:56
2017-10-05 03:36:05 UTC 01:02:56

Week 5 is in the books! Which team catapulted into the playoff picture? Which team suffered a loss but likely didn't diminish their national standing much? Which team scored the biggest upset?

Week 4 Preview | Here We Go

Week 4 is here and, once again, we save you a ton of time by just telling you how all the high-profile games will go on Saturday. You don't even need to watch Wisconsin-Michigan State now. Nor LSU-Auburn. Tennesee-Florida or Georgia-Ole Miss or Stanford-UCLA? No and no and no. We've got you. Take Saturday and learn Mandarin instead.

01:06:35
2017-10-05 03:36:05 UTC 01:06:35
Week 3 Recap | A Week of Almosts

Week 3 is in the books, a Saturday full of almosts. Wisconsin almost lost to Georgia State. Mizzou almost upset Georgia. Florida State almost stayed within six touchdowns of Louisville. Look back over the week that was with CA and Luke. They still hate most teams (especially yours!).

01:05:41
2017-10-05 03:36:05 UTC 01:05:41
Week 3 Preview | More Oxford Blues?

Saturday? Easily a top, I don't know, THREE slate of the season so far. Don't have time to watch? No problem, Luke and Canada conveniently lay out all the winners and losers a full several days before the games actually take place. Big time-saver.

50:57
2017-10-05 03:36:05 UTC 50:57
Week 2 Recap | It Was College Football

Week 2 is in the books, the most notable highlights of which were probably an officiating error and a couple of bad wins. Still, it was probably more exciting -- or at least portentous -- than expected, with Washington continuing to roll, Tennessee possibly getting back on track, and Arkansas scoring a big upset over TCU. Recap 'em all on this week's ep!

01:03:27
2017-10-05 03:36:05 UTC 01:03:27
Week 2 Preview | Bad CFB Is Better Than Good Anything Else

A fantastic Week 1 is behind us, and Week 2 is . . . still football. Look, yes, TCU-Arkansas and Tennessee-Va Tech are probably the best games of the week. But we just got through months of no football, this is way better than the alternative. And don't you want to see if Western Kentucky is twice as good as USC, as Vegas seems to think?

Week 1 Recap | Houston Has No Problem
44:03
2017-10-05 03:36:05 UTC 44:03

2016 Big 12 Preview | Not Just Strong, Charlie Strong

The Big 12 was one of the more interesting conferences last year, surprisingly spawning a number of teams -- Baylors and Oklahomas and OK States and TCUs -- that were genuine playoff contenders at various points in the season. Will that success carry over into 2016?

Offseason Scandals, Shenanigans and (Under)Shirts

Much like people being out after 2am, a lot can happen to a college football program in late-spring, and really only a few of them are good. Baylor? Not doing great. Mississippi State? Less than ideal June thus far.

The Oklahoma schools were up, the Kansas schools were down, the private Texas schools were up and down from week to week, and sometimes seemingly simultaneously. So all in all, how did the Big 12 fare in 2015?

And who's going to win the Kentucky Derby? Plus, as long as we're digressing, what about Canelo-Khan? Patience, my friends; the boys answer your every question in the latest episode.

Recruiting Chatter, Hated Teams & Steven Spielberg

The dog days of the CFB offseason wear on, leaving us with nothing to talk about. Except (shudder) recruiting. And recruiting websites. And horses. And Steven Spielberg. Actually, that's not a bad little episode, come to think of it.

The 2015 season is in the books, but it's never too early to start looking ahead to the 2016 contenders.

From battle of the big guys to the importance of red zone conversions to OLB containment vs DeShaun Watson, CA and Luke preview all of the game's biggest factors. Could an upset be brewing?

So sit back and embrace the first of two straight weeks of mediocrity with the boys, who preview the road to the Fun Belt championship, the battle of A&M and Ole Miss, the insane line of Utah-USC, and everything in between. As far as awful slates go, it's a pretty good one.
