Grantland Network: The Solid Verbal

After college football’s fifth week, Ty Hildenbrandt and Dan Rubenstein wonder if Wisconsin will run the table in the Big Ten, if Trent Richardson has a physical switch that starts his engine, and what happened to the old Clemson that always fell short in big games.

Hildenbrandt and Rubenstein also discuss the raging tire fire at Ohio State, Texas A&M’s second half collapses, Stephen Garcia’s value in a Bad Quarterback League, and yet another gritty performance by Nick Foles in a losing effort. And, of course, more reverbs from listeners.
