Nati Boys #26: The AFC North is Bad and They Should Feel Bad

img_3509-1

The Nati Boys dive into the past weekend’s NCAA football action as we recap the Buckeyes victory over Maryland and UC’s loss to Central Florida.  Whitty takes some joy in the fact that Michigan and Oklahoma both lost to unranked  opponents, and we had ourselves some bonus MACtion as Western Michigan and Buffalo battled it out in a 7 OT thriller.  On Sunday the Bengals climbed within striking distance of first place in a weak AFC North with a sloppy victory over the Bills, while the Jets backed up their Twitter trash talk to the Browns by beating them in Cleveland to send them to 0-5 on the season.  The NHL season is finally underway as the Blue Jackets got off to a hot start on Friday before running into buzzsaw that is the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.  Alexander Ovechkin is imposing his will on opposing teams as he started out the year with 7 goals in two games.  Finally, we wrap things up with Kenyon Martin’s comments on Jeremy Lin’s decision to wear dreadlocks, which we all agree, looks pretty terrible.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year!  We’ve hit the quarter-season mark in the NFL, which means it’s time for the Nati Boys to present their quarter-season NFL awards.  The guys also discuss Lavar Ball’s decision to pull his youngest son out of high school in order to home school him, and we reflect on the NBA’s changes to the All Star format.  We preview UC’s and OSU’s upcoming matchups, and we pick on the Browns a little bit for not being very good at football.  We give our upcoming NFL picks as Whitty tries to climb out of the cellar and gain some ground on the other guys.  Finally, in honor of OJ’s recent release, we wrap the show up with a fantasy draft of the first things we would do upon being released from prison.

Nati Boys #20: Are The Bengals Bad At Football?

img_3509-1

We’ve got a football heavy episode today as we dive deep into the struggling Bengals and talk about whether or not the offensive coordinator change is enough to kick start this offense.  A lot went on during week 2 of the NFL, including Joe Thomas’s milestone, Antonio Gate’s record, Jay Cutler’s return to football and Jerry Jones’s attempt to block the commissioner’s contract extension.  On the college football side, we recap the Bearcats and Buckeyes victories, we’ve got some newcomers in the AP top 25, and we had a wild finish in the Florida/Tennessee game.  Finally, we wrap things up by confessing that the Nati Boys are a little bit more basic than you may have thought.

Wake Up With Whitty – 9/16/2017

Oh, hello there. I didn’t see you come in. I was too busy reading last week’s Wake Up With Whitty. Look at me. So young and innocent. So vibrant and happy. So optimistic and full of enthusiasm. So ignorant and naive. A lot has happened since we last met. The Buckeyes were beaten by the Sooners. Baker Mayfield planted an Oklahoma flag right through my heart. The Bengals lost. Twice. People are calling for quarterback changes on both teams. The Reds were officially eliminated from playoff contention (we knew that was coming months ago, but it still stings when it becomes official). Now I sit here, dejected. Jaded. My spirit broken. I hate sports. Here’s Wake Up With Whitty:
