The Edited Version - Week 8 Reviewed

31:49 | Oct 22nd, 2018

F**K THEM - Week 3 Review

1:04:26 | Sep 17th, 2018

Ed Orgeron did a cuss, but BYU won in Madison despite specifically not doing cusses, so it remains to be seen whether or not cusses are the way to win football games. Arkansas and Northwestern and USC all probably did some cusses, though you can't re...Show More

59:56 | May 30th, 2018

1:02:18 | May 1st, 2018

Two of us have seen Avengers: Infinity War but the other hasn't, so we only get to talk about superheroes in a really vague and meandering and nudity-focused way. Dave Wannstedt is a superhero for our purposes. Fred Durst is not. Again, this is the o...Show More

Shutdown Fullcast 8.14: The Mockest Draft

59:24 | Apr 25th, 2018

By my count, we drafted 8 quarterbacks, which seems absurd but watch the actual NFL pick nine in the first round this year and make us look lame. But will they draft a kicker? Will they draft an offensive lineman and make him play kicker? Will they f...Show More

John Currie got fired by Tennessee when the year was still 2017, yet we, the idiot sports internet, are still talking about it in March 2018. Why? Because the Vols decided to give the world a BUNCH of Currie's text messages, allowing us to discuss im...Show More

02:54 | Dec 31st, 2017

CITRUS AND BUFFALO WILD WINGS DO NOT GO TOGETHER I FEEL LIKE I'M GOING CRAZY

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Peach Bowl

08:28 | Dec 31st, 2017

The 2017 Peach Bowl features Auburn and UCF. We spend a good portion of this episode talking about Washington State and It's A Wonderful Life. This is the best way to explain this podcast to a stranger.

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Outback Bowl

15:58 | Dec 31st, 2017

I'm choosing to use this space to thank all of you who helped make #FryinNanni come true. Please remember me fondly if, as Spencer and Jason suggest and borderline wish on this episode, I am burned, shot, trampled, arrested, or otherwise seriously in...Show More

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Taxslayer Bowl

05:29 | Dec 29th, 2017

Easily one of the most vulgar bowl previews we've ever done, and we BARELY mention Louisville! Miracles are all around you, if only you're willing to believe/have a very low standard for miracles.

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Liberty Bowl

06:22 | Dec 29th, 2017

Did you know the Liberty Bowl was once played in an Atlantic City convention hall? Did you know all Memphis rap hooks have to advise you to do something bad for you? Did you know Holly is working on a spell to lure Paul Johnson to Knoxville?

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Fiesta Bowl

03:51 | Dec 29th, 2017

Penn State, we somehow gave you Lane Kiffin. Washington, we treated you even more poorly. I'm sorry for all of this. Absolutely all of it.

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Orange Bowl

05:59 | Dec 29th, 2017

You're not so different, Wisconsin and Miami, in that you've both got border smuggling potential and love to enjoy life's pleasures. There is the whole winter thing, but, hey, that's what brandy is for!

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Belk Bowl

09:41 | Dec 27th, 2017

Spencer stupidly tries to eat healthy. Ryan loses a bet with Jason on the number of Belks in Charlotte. Aggietha Christie is invented. Again, to call these bowl previews is bordering on criminal fraud.

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Music City Bowl

10:16 | Dec 27th, 2017

It's a bowl in Nashville and one of the teams is Northwestern. You can guess 90% of the jokes based on that limited information alone.

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Cotton Bowl

09:43 | Dec 27th, 2017

Ohio State-USC should be an excellent bowl matchup, and that's why we spend a lot of time talking about Josh Rosen and the Browns and Blockbuster Video. We should all be fired.

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Arizona Bowl

04:27 | Dec 27th, 2017

"Get on TV" may not seem like a particularly lofty aim for a bowl game but dammit the Arizona Bowl was not going to listen to your negativity. They went out there and ACHIEVED. So did New Mexico State, who won more games this year than Florida or Ten...Show More

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Sun Bowl

07:04 | Dec 27th, 2017

The Sun Bowl is tied with the Sugar and Orange Bowls for second-oldest in college football. While the other two sometimes get to host a Playoff game, the Sun will be sending Todd Graham out in style while Herm Edwards tries to convince recruits to co...Show More

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Camping World Bowl

06:44 | Dec 23rd, 2017

Featuring two of the college football fanbases best suited to a camping-based society. Because this game is in Orlando, we are also required to make extensive mention of the Weird Donald Trump Robot at Disney.

05:42 | Dec 23rd, 2017

RIDERS WITH SWORDS VERSUS SAILORS. You will throw a horse if you love the troops, dammit.

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Texas Bowl

04:27 | Dec 23rd, 2017

In which we ponder what a message board based God would do, and why the Birmingham Bowl trophy is the best version of Spencer, and butts.

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Halamo Bowl

06:33 | Dec 23rd, 2017

HELL YEAH WE CHEATED YOU OUT OF AN EPISODE. Just pretend these two games are the Designer Imposter College Football Playoff. So much to play for now! The SEC and ACC totally shut out, and nobody's talking about it!

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Foster Farms Bowl

00:30 | Dec 23rd, 2017

Behold the raw efficiency of this bowl preview, where we talk over each other for 90 seconds and then that's it.

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Pinstripe Bowl

09:40 | Dec 21st, 2017

Technically this is more of a Iowa Season In Review. Iowa: we can do anything, and that includes an incredibly dumb 17-10 overtime loss to Northwestern!

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Independence Bowl

05:35 | Dec 21st, 2017

Most American schools won't teach you that the American Revolution started in Shreveport when British forces started a brawl in a Logan's Roadhouse after someone talked shit about the House of Tudor. We will.

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Cactus Bowl

08:33 | Dec 21st, 2017

What's the difference between naming a wine and naming a craft beer? How does the Cactus Bowl promote group sex? Why is Bill Snyder going to sue us into oblivion? When will this podcast die already?

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Quick Lane Bowl

04:06 | Dec 21st, 2017

The Quick Lane Bowl has a website for two reasons. One, to remind you that the Detroit Lions exist even though thousands of other American businesses have failed in your lifetime. Two, to sell you 2014 Quick Lane Bowl gear. E-COMMERCE IS KING.

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Heart of Dallas Bowl

07:02 | Dec 21st, 2017

Spencer isn't dead. We at the Shutdown Fullcast regret the error. (For so many reasons.)

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Hawaii Bowl

08:51 | Dec 19th, 2017

By far the least college footbally of these previews, in that we spend almost the entirety of the episode discussing babies pooping in the bathtub and The Last Jedi and the weird Garfield scene in The Last Jedi. We're sorry, Hawaii Bowl. Just sort of...Show More

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Armed Forces Bowl

07:10 | Dec 19th, 2017

One of the only previews that actually talks about the game, but only to note that it will probably last an hour and 47 minutes and the winning team will manage to only run 38 plays.

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Dollar General Bowl

05:25 | Dec 19th, 2017

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Birmingham Bowl

14:12 | Dec 19th, 2017

The Birmingham Bowl has no title sponsor this year, and three of the four platinum sponsors are entities that really don't need the publicity or are already getting it thanks to the very existence of this bowl. So basically, let's pool our money and ...Show More

Shutdown Fullcast 40 for 40: The 2017 Gasparilla Bowl
