Welcome back folks!

This is a critical but tonally different episode. Elliott and Adam are out on loan this week, and so friend of the pod and writer extraordinaire Jon Ridewood sits in to talk about moving back from New York City a few days ago, and more pressingly football. As such, we were maybe drinking less and it’s a fairly NPR-esque, buttoned-up show. We promise that’s an irregularity.

We talk about Against Football, a book that attacks our beloved game’s very existence with righteous and biting conviction. This discussion serves as a preview for an upcoming print interview with author Steve Almond you can read Aug. 30 on the Kernel.

In our fantasy cheat code series, we talk probably too much about what the hell to do at tight end. Then we begin our NFL preview package by telling you how they will finish in the AFC East and the NFC East.

Lastly, we talk about what rap albums blew our minds as children.

    I have to say that I’ve been down on football for the past few years. It’s not because the red and gold (9ners) had the worst off-season in the history of the sport, or that one of their up and coming stars quit due to concussion concerns, but more that the NFL has handled several high priority issues very poorly. It took a gal being knocked out on camera to spread domestic violence awareness, and several deaths/exposed coverups to show the truth about CTE. To top it off, the best team over the past 15 years cheats at will. The whole league is fucked up from top to bottom. My love for college football is drifting too. I once thought the college game was the best sport on earth, but it’s slipping for me due to many of the same problems that the NFL has… and the fact that the Beavers suck.

    Baseball has my interest more and more these days. For me there’s nothing better than watching a world class pitcher pick apart the opposing team with backdoor breaking balls and no-dot sliders– all while being backed by great defense. Now that the steroid rules are being enforced, the game is back to how it was meant to be played.
