Week 8 ACC Football Preview

China. It's on the mind of every American man, woman, child and otherwise unidentified - much like the ACCeptable Benefits Podcast! It's Week 8 in the ACC and Doug and Michael-Robert bring you an unfiltered (but otherwise censored as to not upset the real overlord: Mrs. Sewak) look at all the games on deck - with no influence of Chinese money or LeBron James (we canceled his appearance - ha!). Which team will have the upper hand for domination of Doug's heart in the Pitt v. Syracuse...


Week 7 Review

The number 7 is significant. It's brought up in every major religion as relevant, it's the number of wonders in the world both ancient and modern, 1 in 10 people choose it as their favorite number, but most important of all it marks the halfway mark of the college football regular season. A point in time where optimist and pessimist lock in eternal struggle to decide whether that 150 year old crock pot we call college football is half full or half empty of the bubbling sludge of a cheese dip...


Week 7 ACC Football Preview

Doug and MR are comin' to you a day early (thanks Syracuse and NC State...selfish...) on the ACCeptable Benefits Podcast! After a perfect week against the spread, the guys break down the Week 7 slate of games in the ACC: can Louisville pull off the upset? (maybe.) Does Trevor Lawrence really have a shoulder injury? (no.) Will Doug find a way to complain about Pitt even on a bye week? (definitely). All that and more on this Thursday-edition of The ACCeptable Benefits Podcast!


Week 6 ACC Football Review

Grab your tinfoil hats, gang: Doug and MR sit down to talk ACC football, conspiracy theories, and the roles each would play in a bank heist! While it was a lighter slate of games, it wasn't short on wacky plays and wild finishes. The guys go in-depth on each game, including hitting on what Virginia Tech did well to save their season from the brink, if Louisville has a Russian spy at quarterback, what Georgia Tech can be optimistic about (hint: not a ton), and if Pitt can repeat as division...


Week 6 ACC Football Preview - Flashback Friday Edition!

It's the Friday edition of The ACCeptable Benefits Podcast and there are only 4 games on the ACC slate for the weekend; so you know what that means....Flashback Friday Story Time with MR and Doug! The guys hop in the wayback machine to talk the star-studded Miami-Virginia Tech games from '99-'04, along with "The Game the Internet Forgot": North Carolina and Georgia Tech's tie in 1990. The fellas also run through The Pitt List, where they try to decide who fits the bill as being "the most...


Week 5 ACC Football Review

The guys tackle the dismal slate that was week 5. From GA tech's embarrassing loss to Temple to Clemson almost losing to UNC, this is as disappointing as the battle of Gettysburg was for the south. (I'm throwing in another "disappointing" because we're super disappointed.) MR and Doug also have a quick discussion about It Chapter 2, Ancient Rome, and Shelbini's green curry, so this episode has something for everyone. Join us, Clowns! (this message is approved by the great Shelbini tm)


Week 5 ACC Football Preview

If you could go back to 1915 and ask former coach of the North Carolina Tar Heels Thomas Gawthrup "Doggie" Trouchard to preview week 5 of the ACC slate odds are he wouldn't mention Game of Thrones, the burning of the Cuyahoga River, and rabbit hemorrhagic fever. Unfortunately these two podcasters can't make that same promise. If you've found this episode you're lucky enough to be listening to pure content gold revolving around what can only be described as the biggest game in college...


Week 4 ACC Football Review

With the pure uncut joy that can only be felt by a Pitt fan celebrating the annual tradition that is upsetting a highly ranked opponent, the ACCeptable Benefits brings you the facts, fiction, and mixed metaphors that help to color in those blurred lines from a wild week 4. Whether you're fired up over the undeniable rivalry between a directional Michigan and a city in Florida or the demise of a directional Florida at the hands of a city in Pennsylvania we're here for you. So stick with us...


Week 4 ACC Football Preview

The ACCeptable Benefits is celebrating 1,000 listeners! To commemorate the occasion, MR and Doug are doing the exact same thing that got them here - preview' and riffin' on some ACC football! It's Week 4 in the league and the teams are looking to bring their A-game to bounce back from a tough Week 3 for most of the conference. The guys go through the betting lines, complain about some questionable coaching decisions, and get a surprise appearance from Coach Mike Sewak of Georgia Tech fame!


Week 3 ACC Football Review

Week 3 in the ACC is in the books! Doug and MR roll through all the action - breaking down the coach speak following some questionable decisions by Pitt and Florida State; bad losses by Georgia Tech, Boston College and NC State; and just who wants to be the second best QB in the ACC?

ACC Football Week 3 Preview

Doug's back from mourning Syracuse's loss and MR is back from California to preview Week 3 in the ACC! The guys hit some recruiting trail notes before diving into all the week's action. Is Jamie Newman the best QB in the ACC? Does Pitt have what it takes to win the 100th matchup against the criminal organization known as Penn State? Will Jim Leavitt run more laps around the Florida State practice field than the team itself? All that - and of course a bit of Louisville hot dog talk - on this...


ACC Football Week 2 Review

Doug and MR take you on a journey through a conference that experienced highs (UNC/Louisville) and lows (FSU/Syracuse). No sane podcast would spend an entire episode on a conference where 10/13 games were played against group of 5 teams or lower, but that's just what we do. With special emphasis on a clash near the top of the coastal and a review of which teams took care of business against lesser competition the guys step through the week that was and take down their takeaways. Two hosts...


ACC Football Week 2 Preview

Doug and MR are two podcast hosts divided by a country, a country that has no time for old men, no time for scrubs, and certainly no time for an inferior Carolina to inhibit the Return of the Mack. We're previewing the entire Week 2 slate of ACC games, including Louisville vs Eastern Kentucky. From the shadow of the Golden Gate bridge to the closet that Syracuse built back in Atlanta the guys go through each game, discussing their predictions, a few news and notes, and an ultimatum for VT....


ACC Week 1 Review

Happy Labor Day Gang! Doug and MR are workin' on a holiday to review all the Week 1 action from around the ACC. The guys go through each game, discussing where their predictions went right (and wrong - listen, we're not perfect); along with reviewing all the betting-related action! Week 1 may be in the books, but the fun one the ACCeptable Benefits Podcast is just getting started!


ACC Week 1 Preview

Get ready gang - there's a full slate of Week 1 games in the ACC to cover! As always, Doug and Michael-Robert get you ready for all the action by taking an in-depth look at each of the games. At the top of the show, the guys go through news and notes in the ACC as a whole before jumping into each of the games. Additionally, Doug and MR delve into some of the betting action for all the contests (for entertainment purposes only *wink*). It's Week 1 and hope springs eternal! (...except for...


Miami v. Florida Week 0 Review & Clemson v. Georgia Tech Week 0.5 Preview

NC State & Virginia Tech Season Previews

Doug and Michael-Robert preview the upcoming seasons for the NC State Wolfpack and the Virginia Tech Hokies: two teams looking to capitalize on favorable schedules; but with significant questions that need answered to do so. Can Coach Dave Doeren and the Wolfpack take the next step towards an ACC crown despite losing significant NFL talent? Can Coach Justin Fuente and the Hokies reverse the recent downward trend in legendary defensive coordinator Bud Foster's last season? All that and much...


Wake Forest & UNC Season Previews

It's an all North Carolina school ACCeptable Benefits Podcast with Doug and Michael-Robert previewing the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and the North Carolina Tar Heels! Wake Forest is looking to make yet another bowl game under Coach Dave Clawson; while UNC is looking to return to the Patron Saint of the Pod Mack Brown Glory Days under new coach....Mack Brown. WARNING: If you don't like Den of Thieves or the rhythmic stylings of Mark Morrison...this may not be your episode.


Florida State & Pitt Season Previews

The ACCeptable Benefits Podcast team previews keep rollin' on as the season approaches; this time with the Florida State Seminoles and the Pitt Panthers! Doug and Michael-Robert hit on what each squad needs to do to be successful and how each team's new offensive coordinator may make or break the season - and thus, their respective head coach's job.
