November 24, 2015 - Todd Burlage & Hondo Carpenter MEGAHUGE SEGMENT

November 25th, 2015 · Comments

The College Football Playoff rankings came out and the top six was VERY surprising. Todd Burlage writes about Notre Dame for The Fan Indiana and we got his reaction to the rankings. SPOILER ALERT: Light swearing ensues. Then, we let Hondo Carpenter from Spartan Nation join in on the fun. It was fun, tense, dramatic, and a little gassy. By the end, we were all hugging it out.

November 25th, 2015 · Comments

Our Big 12 expert John Haynsworth laments the looooong season for Texas fans. John also breaks down how Oklahoma might be able to get into the College Football Playoff. This, of course, was before all Hell broke loose.

November 24, 2015 - Paul M. Banks

November 25th, 2015 · Comments

Paul M. Banks of TheSportsBank.net gets his MACtion on at Fatty's in Dekalb, IL. He makes us jealous by telling us about the Cajun potato salad he's eating. He also brags about rubbing elbows with the royalty that is Kirk Herbstreit.

NOTE FROM MAXIMUS: Sorry for not including the opening segment. If you were listening live on XERSradio.com, you know that you heard nothing past the intro for the first few minutes of the show. The reason for that was that a microphone processor wasn't plugged in, thus resulting in the mics not being part of the audio chain. All that was recorded from the intro until someone noticed the problem was silence. It's a shame, too, because as we were sitting there doing it, I thought it might have been one of the strongest opening segments that we've done. I tried to edit it in a way to where at least part of it could have been saved for your listening pleasure, but more and more kept having to be cut in order to do so. When you get to that point, it's just best to move on. All I can say is that we'll do better next time. I promise.


Big thanks to our peeps for making us sound competent:
-- Proud grandpoppa Lester Wiltfong, Jr. from Windy City Gridiron
-- Mark Lane from Fox Sports Southwest
-- Sailor Jerry aficionado Todd Burlage from The Fan Indiana
-- The lovely Allie Fontana from The Fantasy Fix

November 10, 2015 - Reggie Hayes

November 15th, 2015 · Comments

The Colts have a bye this week. That didn't stop Reggie Hayes from the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel from bringing it. Find out if Reggie agrees with Maximus for saying that Ryan Grigson will be working in a used car lot after this season. Or, does Reggie have his own prediction?

Allie Fontana from The Fantasy Fix gave us some thoughts on FanDuel and DraftKings being illegal in New York. We've also got your Thrillers & Killers!
