It's D'Eriq King's world, and we're all just living in it. We're back to bask in the glow of an offensive performance for the ages from Houston's dynamic QB, leading the Coogs to ruin USF's perfect season for the 2nd year in a row. We trot out all the superlatives we can think of for #4, as well as give the defense credit for responding in a game without Ed Oliver against a high-powered offense.
Of course we read the best of your #FourWordReviews, as well as taking a quick look at results from around the conference (the entire AAC is conspiring to clinch the West division for us as quickly as possible) and around the state (apparently some Austin-based school wearing a puke-y shade of orange choked as a big favorite?)
It's USF game week, so we're previewing Houston's first conference game against a team with a detectable pulse. As the undefeated Bulls make their way to TDECY Stadium, we check in with our friends from The Daily Stampede/The Bulluminati Podcast for the lowdown on why that undefeated record may be deceiving, how the match-ups will shake out on Saturday, and why a school in the central part of Florida came to be called South Florida.
Plus, Case Keenum and the Broncos pick up a big win, Damyean Dotson's 2nd NBA season is off to a strong start, Cougar Soccer has its most important game in years coming up on Friday, and Volleyball finally wins a conference match.
In as instant a react as can be managed, the boys are back to discuss a decisive win in the former 'house of horrors' that was Annapolis. In addition, your Four Word Reviews are read and we even manage to find some time to discuss week 8 on the whole.
For the third straight week, it's a conference game against a team that's struggling. In this case it's Navy, so of course we spoke to Michael James of TheMidReport.com for the lowdown on why that option offense just isn't optioning right.
We also hit the big AAC East showdown of the coming week, Case Keenum hearing boos in Denver, Cougar soccer having a critical week against top competition, and much more.
Did you miss Houston's 42-20 win over ECU on Saturday because you were watching the Astros? You're not alone. And that's why we're here. Dustin and Sam flew all the way out to East Carolina (fun fact: East Carolina is not a state) to watch the Cougars flip the script and dominate the Pirates with a strong defensive performance, while the offense sputtered. We're breaking down how Ed Oliver and company got things righted, and what the offense (and the team as a whole) needs to improve on as we get further into conference play. And of course, it wouldn't be a game recap without your #FourWordReviews
We also take a look around the American Athletic Conference as a whole, where wacky finishes were on the menu for a trio of East Division contenders.
It's ECU game week, which means that Sam and Dustin are asking the question, are we going to see the version of the Pirates that knocked off UNC, or the one that just got obliterated by Temple? We're talking to 5-time guest Clip Brock of Pirate Radio 1250 about East Carolina's odds of pulling an upset on the suddenly AAC West-leading Cougars.
We also took the pulse of the AAC (including a huge UCF-Memphis showdown this coming week), discussed the latest results from Cougar soccer (who was sending its seniors out in style), and checked in on how the Olympic sports are faring in their fall pseudo-preseason.
