OurDailyPodcast Episode 39: Let's Get Defensive!

This week on the podcast we're looking at the defense and attempting to answer some of the many unanswered questions about this year's defensive team.

It's time for another podcast, and this time, it's personal. Okay maybe not personal, but we're getting defensive. Okay, maybe we're not getting defensive per se, but we are talking about the Baylor defense. That works, right?

We're trying something different to start this week's podcast. We're riffing off of a hypothetical question that popped into my head while reading Stewart Mandel's book The Thinking Fan's Guide to the College Football Playoff, which is available on Amazon right now. The good news is that there's also a Kindle version, too!

In case you haven't noticed, I'm a huge fan of this book. It answers a lot of the questions that I have about the methods the Selection Committee will use to make selections (not only for just the College Football Playoff games, but also for the so-called New Years' Six bowl games), but the thing I found the most interesting was his analysis of the 2009 through 2013 seasons using the criteria that the Selection Committee have outlined. If you think that you know how things would have shaken out over those seasons, you don't. It's going to be a very different season.

Next things next: We're talking about some of the injuries to the WR corps.

Let's Get Defensive!

  • We're talking about all of the aspects of the defense that you want to hear about.
  • Talking NB/Bear Back/Whateverback: What are reasonable expectations for Colin Brence this season?
  • Who benefits the most from a dominant defensive line
  • Mark and Prashanth STILL can't pronounce Orion. OR-EYE-UN.
  • Grant Campbell: Where's he going to line up?
  • BRIAN. NANCE.  'Nuff said.
  • Much, much more.

Fun stuff.
