MGoPodcast 3.8: Boiler Breakers

This one is slightly over an hour, like 1:06.


Purdue. That happened, and apparently that is my terrible catch phrase.

The offense is kind of a bunch of different things. Is this good or bad?

An excessively detailed explanation of the pin and pull zone. Is offered.

Toussaint. Is praised. It is wondered why he only got two carries against State.

The defense. Is this real life?

The Big Ten. Is not good.

Iowa. Doesn't seem real good, either. Jamie brings a statistic that has us laughing in disbelief.

Music this week was tough to link to anything in particular. I stumbled across my Dismemberment Plan directory and "Memory Machine" (from Emergency & I) seemed appropriate, since they're all engineers and we could all use one of the aforementioned machines for the last few years. Then I was in the same directory and went with "Face of the Earth" (from Change) for a reason that shall remain secret. (I like it is the reason.)

The usual links:

This looks like a satisfactory place to post this:

Did anyone notice Beth Mowins would often say Fitz's name in the proper French pronunciation? "Toussough".  Also, I missed the beginning of the game and assumed the whole time she was Pam Ward.

It didn't pop up an error message for me this time on my iphone when i started the download but it is stuck at 7.6 KB. I confirmed other podcasts are downloading.

Anyone have any idea what's going on and how to fix it? Are people still able to download successfully through itunes on iphone?

After listening to the podcast I have a question...where is Cam G??  All off season I kept hearing that he was going to be a SLB, but he had to gain weight.  Why didn't they just move him over to WLB??  He had to have been better than Hawthorne, Herron, and a freshman right??  I mean he played receiver, FS, Spur/Bandit, SLB so that shows he has some athleticism.  Not only that his measureables of 6'3" 215 that seems like good size for the WLB.  So why not flip him?

So, I think Ace nailed one thing on the head.  There's a huge difference between the natural quirkiness of  college fooball and Iowa losing to Minnesota.  I don't care how many things had to go wrong for Iowa to lose that game - Michigan could have turned the ball over in the redzone 8 times and still beaten Minesota this year.  In my opinion, nothing else really matters.  Minnesota is absolutely dreadful and Iowa lost to them last week.

Michigan by a lot on Saturday
