Episode 42 - Week 4: Bowling over Bowling Green

After a record shattering performance against Bowling Green, Rich and Max breakdown the highlights - and significant lowlights - of the blowout victory.  They talk about Melvin Gordon's triumphant day, the importance of Dare Ogunbowale's emergence at running back, the impressive showing by the defense, and even find time to dissect Max's drunken tweets, play some message board trivia, and discuss the finer points of knitting a purse during a football game.  As always, it's an action packed and informative show.  

Message Board Trivia challenge:

Below are four statements.  Three of these were actually made on message boards; one was made up.  Reply in the comments with your guess as to which one is the false one.  The winners get our never ending respect.:

  1. Bart Houston is the type of QB who would just thrive if thrown into the spotlight. Probably the best pure passer on the roster, no fear.
  2. Anyone else a bit disappointed in what we are seeing from Clement so far?

  3. Dare should get 10 touches a game, he shows more explosiveness than Clement.

  4. McEvoy is like Pryor, miller types in that he can throw enough to be a very good qb.
