DudeYouPodcast 164: Aw Hell Yeah


June 23rd 1996, Stone Cold Steve Austin cut the infamous Austin 3:16 promo. 20 years later, two idiots hopped on a podcast and talked about that, and a whole lot more (including soccer!). Join Dpalm and friend of the show Sam Franco as they dive right in.

100 Days: Gus Malzahn Is Going to Get Canned This Year, And Its Not His Fault


Okay, writing these every day in the content deadzone that is June is so hard. Life happens, y’all. Bear with me, we can definitely do 50 if I don’t catch a rhythm.

I have a confession: I really enjoy watching Auburn football under Gus Malzahn. Not even for schadenfreude, as they haven’t been that bad…I just really love their offense when its clicking.

Here’s the problem: it did not click last year. Now-departed-again DC Will Muschamp didn’t make a defense that equaled the sum of its parts. And with Auburn being Auburn, wunderkind Gus Malzahn finds himself squarely on the preemptive hotseat.

A preemptive hotseat, you ask? Well, consider the following:

  • He set the bar WAY too high in both of his Auburn tenures. Cam Newton destroying shit when you’re offensive coordinator is the boon of all boons. (In the boons, no less.) DB-turned-QB Nick Marshall was a little more surprising, but a 4.4 speed QB in a spread option tends to cause problems.
  • He couldn’t have set the bar without throwing the cosmic karma of the universe out of alignment in November of 2013. The $#&*(^%*#$ing ‘Prayer at Jordan-Hare’ and the ‘Kick Six’ happened in the span of 15 days on a calendar. As Shutdown Fullcast put it, “Auburn took out the most subprime mortgage on luck and its come to roost.” That doesn’t even account for the LaQuon Treadwell goal line broken leg the next year.

You set the bar too high, and 8-5 ain’t gonna get it done. ESPECIALLY on the Plains. ESPECIALLY!!! when Alabama is still cranking out nattys.

(Pssssstttt. 8-5 ain’t gonna happen this year. Here’s why)

2016 schedule

My friends, THAT is grotesque.

On one hand, they open with five straight home games! BUUUUUTTTTTT Clemson and LSU are sure losses. Texas A&M is a toss-up. And would it really shock you if Arkansas State pulled an upset? It wouldn’t shock me coming off a 44-17 week 1 drubbing.

The rest of October? Who knows what Mississippi State is going to be, but they’ve not been an easy out for quite some time. And it’ll be (insert QB here)’s first road game. Then, Arkansas. Burly, fun Arkansas. And a trip to Ole Miss.

Is Gus gone if they’re 2-6 (0-5)? Almost certainly. 4-4 (2-3), which seems likely at best? That’s where it gets tricky. And more fun.

I’ll give them Vandy and Alabama A&M in November. Maybe Jacob Eason isn’t Jesus and they spring an upset in Athens. They’re still not beating Alabama.

Does 7-5 with a loss to Alabama save Gus’ job? And better yet, isn’t it pretty easy to squint and see 4-8 as a more likely outcome?

Yeah. This is gonna be fun.

100 Days of SEC Dominance: Ex-SEC Footballers Dominate The Bachelorette


This is more Andrew’s domain than it is mine, but we’ve got another former SEC athlete on this season of ABC’s The Bachelorette, a program which finds true love* for dopes looking for their 15 minutes of fame.

*- I think like, 10% of the couples have actually stayed together. Even that seems high.

Former Vanderbilt QB Jordan Rodgers, brother of Aaron is (according to my girlfriend) the favorite to win now that some guy named Chad has been booted.

I have…no analysis, but I think Rodgers would likely supplant Jesse Palmer as first team all-Bachelorette QB. Doesn’t this event (do they play football in an NFL stadium every season?) seem to be catered specifically to his skillset?

Rodgers already belongs in elite company. His mere presence on the show puts him up there with SEC legend Josh Murray and former Florida Gator Jesse Palmer, who got to be THE bachelor back in 2004. As you’ll recall, Murray also has a famous (more locally) brother, listed his profession as a ‘former pro athlete’, and BRODOMINATED the competition to Andi’s heart.

What’s the point of this post? In 12 seasons of The Bachelorette, the SEC is responsible for:

  • one guy who curried enough favor to become the bachelor in the subsequent season, now he is on Good Morning America and many a prominent college football telecast.
  • one guy who parlayed his Bachelorette success into an E! reality show called Famously Single where he joins Pauly D, Willis McGahee (?) and a bunch of celebrity ex’s to figure out why they can’t find love. Yeah, this is a real thing.  And it is the most Murray of things.
  • the leader in the clubhouse this season!

The test next season? BRET BIELIEMA FOR THE BACHELOR! Let’s see how far we can take this thing.
