Show Highlights

  • Now You CeeDee Now You Don’t – What's the difference between a world-class magician and Oklahoma wide receiver CeeDee Lamb's Sooner Magic? As it turns out, not much.Reporter: Gene Wojciechowski
     
  • Coach O Convo – Ed Orgeron’s tears were plain to see as his LSU Tigers celebrated their victory over Alabama. “It was 8 long years coming,” Orgeron said. But the path leading to that moment was much longer for Coach O, including low points and hard lessons along the way.  He shares several—from mistakenly ignoring Pete Carroll’s coaching advice, to how one play call at Ole Miss changed his future. Reporter: Tom Rinaldi
     
  • “I Was a College Football Meme” – In college football, you never know when it will be your time in the spotlight or when the world will suddenly know your name. Nowadays that goes for the fans as well – from the LSU Stare Girl to the Florida State book reader, you never know who will become the next viral image and newest member of college football’s meme team. Reporter: Maria Taylor
     
  • Baylor head coach Matt Rhule will join the show live to discuss his team and Saturday’s matchup

So what I hear when I read this "Dating back to 2012, Corso is 1-8 in his last nine headgear picks involving Oklahoma (1-4 picking against, 0-4 picking OU)" Is that we want Corso to pick OU, because he obviously sucks at picking the winner of OU games.

I wonder if the "I was a college football meme" segment will include the TCU chick who was going to f$&#ing kill someone...

I don't like this statistic. Tomorrow, we'd be the first double-digit home underdog to win...in over 20 years.

Just means we're due.
That which does not kill me, will try again and get nastier

Corso has something of a "statman" relationship with picking the Sooners lately. I hope he picks them!

Thought that was a KSU chick.

There was a different ginger chick from KSt that dropped an F bomb on camera in 2013.
