Grantland Network Podcast: The Solid Verbal

Well, the regular season is officially in the books. We have arrived at bowl season, and The Game of the Century (of January) between LSU and Alabama will determine this year’s national champion. Ty Hildenbrandt and Dan Rubenstein remain lukewarm on the notion of a rematch and take a gander at other, more intriguing bowl matchups that will warm your holiday season.

Plus, The Solid Verbal guys take a closer look at Oklahoma State’s throttling of Oklahoma, the Heisman credentials of Robert Griffin III and Montee Ball, and the latest installment in Dr Pepper’s long tradition of halftime throwing contests.

And finally, don’t forget to play against other Verballers and Grantlanders in the official bowl pool of The Solid Verbal. The winner may or may not receive a shirt featuring the face of a large jungle cat.
