Grantland Network Podcast: The Solid Verbal

Denard Robinson

In this week’s Solid Verbal podcast, Ty Hildenbrandt and Dan Rubenstein review another dominating performance by LSU, this time over Arkansas, and discuss the frightening possibility of the Tigers’ defense being even better in 2012. Plus, after an Alabama rout in the Iron Bowl, they concede that a rematch will occur, but not before lobbying for a playoff and threatening a December filled with wall-to-wall New Mexico Bowl coverage, just to keep things fresh.

Hildenbrandt and Rubenstein also dissect Montee Ball’s Heisman resume, the end of the Tommy Rees experiment, Michigan’s big win in The Game, UCLA’s march to Pac-12 South glory, and Pitbull’s improbable role in Dr Pepper commercials. Plus, Ty’s groundbreaking method for trash-talking his future self, Dan’s theory on quarterbacking statistics, and another batch of listener voice messages.
