Podcast Episode 059: Kicking off Big Ten week by talking West Virginia, Notre Dame

Co-host of Solid Verbal talks Big Ten and more

Big Ten Week is officially underway so what better time to discuss the West Virginia Mountaineers and Notre Dame Fighting Irish, right?

The past couple of weeks have seen a pair of BCS coaches be forced out of their jobs, which is pretty odd as we are in the middle of June right now and not the beginning of December. With Bill Stewart agreeing to sign his letter of resignation at West Virginia on Friday the transition of power to Dana Holgorsen has already taken its course.

Will Luke Fickell be as fortunate at Ohio State?

That’s one of the questions I asked Ty Hildenbrandt, from The Solid Verbal. Hildenbrandt, who lives right up the road (well, the Pennsylvania Turnpike) from me, stopped by the podcast to discuss a number of Big Ten related issues but we also review the recent mess in Morgantown. And if we get a chance to talk to Ty we have to touch on his Notre Dame Fighting Irish. As you will hear (and might suspect), we have some different opinions on the 2011 Golden Domers.

Yes, we even have a Rashard Casey and Byron Leftwich reference at some point.

The Solid Verbal is the highest rated and most popular, independently-run college football podcast on the web.  Featured by iTunes on several occasions, the show has been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times and boasts thousands of listeners (or “Verballers”) in every corner of the globe. But odds are if you are checking out this episode you already knew all of that.
