State of Dallas, NBA MVP, NCAA FB
Right, Dallas is not a state, but it is certainly IN one! The guys start today by talkin’ Dak and debating “candidates” for Dallas’ next head coach (Hayden… your publisher is going on record as saying MICHIGAN IS NOT GOING TO FIRE HARBAUGH.) Next, they turn their attention to the NBA, jumping into an early MVP conversation. After that, Kennedy provides a colorful recounting of his visit to LSU for the game of pain. I promise you will find some surprises in this one! After the virtual trip, both Hayden and Kennedy offer predictions about this weekend’s NCAA football games. For the big finale, Kennedy goes on a much-needed rant ending in a shocking revelation that is sure to bring his own house down!! I don’t know the rules myself, but I dare say this could get him banished from the kingdom!

Callin Foul on Kaepernicks Expectations? Plus Other Odds and Ends
Hayden and Kennedy weigh in on Colin Kaepernick’s actions of yesterday and today. How and why did we get to this place? And are his current actions and expectations realistic? After a heartfelt review of the Kaepernick case, the boys move to NFL MVP odds. They agree on the guys with the highest odds of winning -Guess which 1:10 bet has Hayden all fired up.

If you weren’t sure where Kennedy’s allegiance lies before, you will have no doubts after today’s episode. The excitement is contagious! Join in or smack ‘em down on twitter.

Browns specialist and club member Eriq Diaz joins Hayden, Kennedy, and Ian, and the result is a super-charged knowledge bowl of football and basketball discussion.

NBA Mighty Has Fallen, Plus NFL Tomorrow
Not just fallen but broken.

And ohhhhh the bitter and the sweet ingredients in the mix for our die-hard Mavs supporter, and ever-lasting LeBron lover. Next come predictions for tomorrow’s NFL day. This time Hayden’s team is sitting on the sidelines… and yet somehow, he manages to get even MORE spirited than ever regarding Sunday’s games. And when it comes to Monday’s Cowboys VS Giants… OOOOHHH BROTHER! It’s a whole new level! Of Course, Kennedy can hold his own- he knows how to dish it right back! Listen now, and tweet them some smack back during the games!

NFL Pre Mortem with a Splash of NBA
Midway through the NFL season, Hayden and Kennedy offer up a frank review of their original and revised picks - where did they go most right and most wrong? And which predictions are still in the percolator? There’s plenty of “yeah you are right” in this honest after-the-fact-review section of the show. If you find yourself lulled into a false sense of total peace at the C Lunch Sports table, rest assured that before long the episode winds its way back to yet another good ol’ American Dak off! And Kennedy thought he was getting a bye week - as if! When the smoke clears, we get early reactions to the NBA (AKA a bit of second guessing) and NBA top rookies. Agree or disagree? Listen up then tweet them your thoughts!

Way More NBA!
This is the best of Hayden and Kennedy basking in the glory of NBA season’s early days. Even LeBron’s rocky start isn’t getting Hayden down today. The boys take off on a journey of interesting picks including MVP, Breakout Player, Proposed Rule Change, Defensive Player, and Game-On-The-Line-Shooter. Of course, there is still some football in the mix this weekend, with Hayden hungrily anticipating Drew Brees’ return, and Kennedy taking a moment to absorb the joy of his near perfect NCAA day amidst a basically stress-free NFL week – Cowboys are obviously off. Don’t worry, the boys find plenty to debate, even without AMERICA’S TEAM on the field!

SHOOTING SEASON - Welcome back, NBA!

Cowboys Crunch Continues
Yall know how this one goes. Another week of triumph for Hayden on his New Orleans high, and another very tough discussion for our own Kennedy Curley, Cowboys fan extraordinaire. After Kennedy endures his lumps, the boys take on the roles of supreme beings in the universe of NFL team ownership with a rousing round of Cut, Fire, or Keep. They decide -or debate- the fates of some of the most controversial coaches and players of the moment. If only! Of course, the week is not complete without a review of last week’s games, and previews and predictions for the upcoming week. Agree or disagree? Send them a tweet to let them know!
99 minutes | Oct 5, 2019
To be more precise, it’s California Senate Bill 206, AKA The Fair Play Act, and it is the first topic of discussion for today’s podcast. Kennedy and Hayden discuss the new law slated to take effect Jan. 1, 2023, then take the discussion to the next level with some creative opinions about compensation for college players. If you think, as I often have “it should be allowed, but I’m not sure how” you will enjoy the ideas shared today! After that it’s time to predict the outcomes of this week’s games. There’s quite a bit of agreement in the air today, but there are a few surprises on both ends! Listen quick before the games or check up on their accuracy afterwards. Either way be sure to tweet some smack talk back at them to let them know you were listening!

Remembering Josh, Cowboys, and Rookie Contracted QB Rankings
On the eve of the second anniversary Josh Ochoa’s passing, the boys spend the first few minutes talking about the best friend who is the inspiration for this podcast. Before long the inevitable Cowboy’s discussion/debate ignites– Josh looking down from above with a giant smile, and a big wooden spoon to stir the pot! The great quarterback compensation debate follows, and quickly develops into another list ranking session. This time we get the top 10 QBs still under rookie contract… but it doesn’t come easily. Mama said nothing worth having was ever quick or easy. This episode is well worth having! Take note, next time the guys are switching to an audio-only version of the cast. Wait, what??? No more WATCHING lunch get eaten?!

Guest appearances include multiple former classmates, the younger Klink brother (sporting Razorback swag honoring both Klink sisters), and Hayden’s pup Tori. Kennedy valiantly attempts a solid stream of coherent commentary amidst the free-for-all ball busting bar room brawl banter. This episode is NOT for tender ears.

40 Mil? Boy’s Smokin’ Dak! and Elliott Phone Home
Kennedy and Hayden enjoy a unique moment of agreement about the Dak Prescott contract issue… they even agree with Jerry Jones. Hayden may be on a questionable sugar high after this lunch, but Cowboys’ #4 is seriously delusional. The boys find agreement regarding RB contracts as well, but the debate swings wide around the Cowboys outlook WITH Zeke vs withOUT Zeke. (Kennedy actually mentions Elliott phoning home! Well he really said the Cowboys called Zeke… but there was a phone dialing in the background! Do y’all remember E.T. or am I old?) Also playoff predictions begin to shuffle based on tremors in the league. Make sure you tune in right from the beginning… Today starts with an awesome announcement by Kennedy about Hayden’s time away!
45 minutes | Aug 20, 2019
Brady Extension and NFL Top 100
After a quick discussion of the uncontroversial Brady contract extension, Kennedy and Hayden launch into an interesting dissection of the NFL players top 100 list. The boys find some similarities from within their own lists, identify some major category oversights, and even make up a new word: Suppleased. Kennedy is surprised and pleased. Hayden… he’s just plain goofy by the time this one wraps up!
