Bengals vs. Seahawks: Surprisingly Close

Riverfront Radio Logo

The Bengals are finally back! And they weren’t as bad as we had all assumed they were going to be. They kept it close against the Seahawks, and have given us some hope for the rest of the season. John Ross had a surprisingly great game, and Andy Dalton was competent in his role with the new offense. Overall, we’re just happy that football is back, and we let Jeff gloat about the Browns loss. Enjoy the show!

Bengals Predictions

Riverfront Radio Logo

We’re just days away from the start of the NFL season, and the feeling in the room is less than optimistic at this point.  We talk about the current state of the Bengals’ 53-man roster before switching gears to Reds and college football talk.  We close it out with more NFL talk as we predict the Bengals’ record this year and give our thoughts on who’s going to be in Super Bowl LIV.  (Spoiler Alert: It’s not the Bengals)

Jim Harbaugh Believes ‘You Are What You Eat’. Apparently He’s Not Eating Big Ten Success For Dinner

College football coaches are weird dudes. From Les Miles eating grass to [REDACTED] faking a heart attack to get out of a contract when he realized the future of [REDACTED] football wasn’t as promising as it once was, you could write a book about the oddities of college coaches. Jim Harbaugh is no different when it comes to his theories on food. This might trump his previous take on the skim vs. whole milk debate.

I Watched Rudy Today and I Didn’t Cry

Ok, that’s a lie. I cried. It’s kind of impossible not to when you sit down and think about it. Unless you’re a robot or have never competed in athletics and don’t know the hard work that goes into having the slightest bit of success. Sure, you may have gotten a promotion a few years before me because of hard work, but that doesn’t compare to the daily grind of trying to be successful in a violent sport, nerd. Continue reading

Coming Soon: Today’s Best College GameDay Signs

Embed from Getty Images

Every Saturday we see hilarious signs on ESPN’s College GameDay. The Washington State flag is a staple, but each week we’re blessed with hilarious signs (if you get the joke behind it) and sometimes questionable claims or accusations about an opposing player or coach (i.e. MilkGate between Michigan and Ohio State fans last season).

This season I’ll be posting the best sign(s) I saw throughout the day. If you come across any as you fight off a Saturday morning hangover and try to figure out if you’re watching Chris Fowler or Rece Davis talk, be sure to send them my way.

I’m an Ohio Bobcats season ticket holder (not to brag, but I’m bragging), so I will be relying heavily on Twitter and our loyal readers to send screen grabs my way. I don’t know if I’ll be able to get the bartender at Pigskin to stop, rewind, and pause one of their TVs just so I can take a picture of someone making fun of Nick Saban for not smiling.

This week the College GameDay crew is in Columbus, Ohio for the Ohio State vs. Oklahoma (the knock-off OU). Since it’s a late match up, there should be plenty of time for funny signs to be caught on camera if you can see past all the Home Depot signage and subtle advertisement.

Send any signs you see my way at @MillironMac on Twitter. I’ll credit you for finding the best sign of the week if I use yours, and somewhere down the line we may work in some prizes or other opportunities (a day spent with Jefe, perhaps).

West Virginia vs. Virginia Tech Has the Washington Redskins Logo at Midfield and It’s Driving Me Nuts

Before everyone gets butt-hurt and labels this as an anti-Redskins blog, just know that I’m not one of the many people with faux outrage over the use of Redskins, Indians, etc.

Is Chief Wahoo’s image representing a Native American maybe a little racist? Probably. But that doesn’t mean they should stop using the name Indians all together.. Then again, fuck Cleveland. Disband that racist ass franchise.

I do, however, have a major problem with the Washington Redskins logo being on the 50-yard-line for the West Virginia vs. Virginia Tech game. I’ve seen so many games played on neutral sites all weekend and this is the first instance I’ve seen of the grounds crew being too lazy to spend a few extra hours with field paint. Is FedEx Field cutting back on overtime? Is Daniel Snyder saving up for his big payday for Kirk Cousins? Your guess is as good as mine, but no answer is good enough. I’m not watching a Sunday night college football game for it to look like that dick on Madden who always picks a different stadium other than the fields of the two teams at battle. We all know that guy.

So, FedEx Field grounds crew, I beg you. Please come to your senses and paint something cool while the teams are in their locker rooms at halftime. If not, I might just flip back and forth between games rather than keep it on ESPN. The ball’s paint can’s in your court.

King Saban Wants to Change NCAA Football Scheduling Because He’s Bored with Winning Everything

ESPN – Alabama coach Nick Saban has a theory for the College Football Playoff that he thinks is “so far out” that nobody will listen to him.

“We should play all teams in the Power 5 conferences,” Saban said Wednesday. “If we did that, then if we were going to have bowl games, we should do the bowl games just like we do in the NCAA basketball tournament — not by record but by some kind of power rating that gets you in a bowl game. If we did that, people would be a little less interested in maybe bowl games and more interested in expanding the playoff.”

Shut up, Nick. Well, I mean… I kinda agree with you in some aspects, but shut up. While it’s absurd that 6 wins can get you a bowl berth, I’m not a fan of the expanded playoff system and the Power 5 conferences keeping to themselves throughout the regular season.  Continue reading
