New, 41 comments

College GameDay is coming to town! Plus, we're recapping Texas Tech vs. Baylor from Saturday in Arlington.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

In case you haven't heard, ESPN College GameDay is coming to Waco on Saturday for the tilt against Kansas State. You know we're talking about that, and we do quite a bit to start. Mark, Prashanth and I are here to do just that as well as talk about surviving Texas Tech in Arlington over the weekend. Here's what we're talking about:

College GameDay heading to Waco! And related topics

  • The most on-the-nose cold open ever.
  • Our reaction to the news, including outlook on how it affected our moods in the aftermath of the Tech game
  • Note: Pras cut out at one point in here, but the way we record allowed me to salvage the point he makes. I left it in, then shifted to the conversation Mark and I had while he was gone. You may notice a somewhat abrupt conversation change from a conversation perspective.
  • The rankings and our feelings towards them this week
  • NOTE: Let's not go crazy with our engagement of the media this
  • Signs, Signs, everywhere signs (more on that in a bit) - We're discussing the 61-58 sign and its prevalence.

Recapping Texas Tech

  • The tale of two games: With and without Bryce Petty and how his injury impacted both sides of the ball
  • Tech was able to find matchups to exploit
  • Resurfacing of the three-man front and the lack of designed blitz packages
  • In which aspect of our offense/defense are we most confident
  • "It's Tech's Bowl Game!" and how that actually impacted the play of the game
  • Ryan Reid and his amazing forced turnover
  • More Big 12 Ref fun and Rod Gilmore
  • The two respective hits on the QBs
  • Bryce Petty's injury and his status moving forward

Backing up... GameDay Signs!

We talked about it in the podcast, but someone mentioned that they're going to put up a fanpost for GameDay sign ideas. Since we're going to be doing a live preview show on Thursday night, we'll talk about those sign ideas, pick the best, and maybe put up a poll so that you can vote on the best ones. Bears, bring the wit. Let's do this big.
