Carla and Crappy Show: The Championship Week Edition

College Football Playoff trophy

And so we’re here. Welcome to Championship Week … well, unless you’re the Big 12, that is. Every game this week is important – even games that aren’t technically championship games.

We’re keeping our eye out on upsets … continuing the seemingly endless Baylor vs. TCU debate … talking about yet another new quarterback at Ohio State … and wondering if there is any possible way that Missouri can beat Alabama. (We don’t have our hopes up on that last one.)

We get things started Friday night, talking about the Pac-12 Championship Game between Arizona and Oregon. By the time Sunday morning rolls around, we’ll know which four teams are going to have the chance to play for that gold and silver trophy in the first-ever College Football Playoff. Read more…

Carla and Crappy Show: Rivalry Week Edition

Land Grant Trophy

It’s the most wonderful week of the year. While Crappy and I are obviously looking forward to Thanksgiving (or Swedish Thanksgiving as the case may be), we’re also looking forward to a ridiculous slate of college football. It’s rivalry week, ladies and gents.

Land Grant TrophyWhile we make a brief mention of Ohio State vs. “That Team Up North” (did I do that right, Crappy?) and Michigan State and Penn State’s battle over the world’s ugliest trophy (that’s it pictured at right), we’re paying closer attention to rivalry games that will play a huge role in the College Football Playoff. Which team stands to gain more, TCU or Baylor? (I’m not sure we ever answered that question.) Which game matters more, the Egg Bowl or the Iron Bowl? (We’re going with the Iron Bowl by the slimmest of margins.)

So, after resuscitating from your turkey-induced food coma, enjoy feasting with us on some college football rivalries.

Carla and Crappy Show: The Texas State Championship Edition

Baylor

As we prepare for Week 13 of the college football season, Crappy and I take a closer look at the top 10 teams as ranked by the College Football Playoff committee.

Alabama’s No. 1 (OK). Mississippi State is still in the playoff at No. 4 (also OK). But what to do about Baylor and TCU? How did TCU stay ahead of Baylor after a lackluster performance against Kansas? And how in the heck did Ohio State jump Baylor?

The questions aren’t easy … but discussing them sure is fun, isn’t it? Read more…

Carla and Crappy Show: The ‘Oh, Hey There, Playoffs’ Edition

Saban500

It’s Week 12 … and instead of talking about every game in the SEC West, Crappy and I dive into the murky waters of the new College Football Playoff rankings.

Does Ohio State have a chance? What happens if the SEC West implodes? Why is TCU ranked ahead of Baylor, even though Baylor beat TCU head-to-head?

We also talk about the two games that we’ll be watching closely on Saturday (other than Ohio State at Minnesota, that is): Mississippi State at Alabama and Nebraska at Wisconsin. Read more…

Carla and Crappy Show: Presbyterian College Edition

Presbyterian College Blue Hose

A Week 11 college football pop quiz! Which one of these games is not like the others?

  • Kansas State at TCU
  • Alabama at LSU
  • Ohio State at Michigan State
  • Presbyterian College at Ole Miss

No, that last one’s not a typo. It’s a real college football game that’s being played this weekend. So, while Crappy and I are very intrigued by the other three games in this list – as well as all the amazing games that we didn’t talk about like Baylor at Oklahoma, Notre Dame at Arizona State and Oregon at Utah – we’re not so intrigued by that fourth one. In fact, we’d prefer that it wasn’t played at all. Read more…
