ACC Championship Preview + Spinnin' the Coaching Carousel!

From the guys that brought you full length episodes of The ACCeptable Benefits Podcast comes a mini-sode about the biggest game in the conference! Doug and Michael-Robert dive right into the Virginia v. Clemson match-up. With Clemson hitting their stride the last few weeks, is there anything Virginia can do to remain competitive?....Probably not, but the guys give it a shot for the sake of capital-C Content. Next, the Coaching Carousel has begun spinning - tossing coaches off the ride left...


Week 14 ACC Review

In Remember the Titans, Coach Boone told us that 50,000* men died at Gettysburg. I'd like to think that the only thing that the only thing that level of carnage is rivalry week in the ACC. We saw backs turned on packs, cards shuffled by a team with a wide receiver at quarterback, a 9 point win in overtime, and someone got thrown into a wall during a fight that surprisingly enough didn't involve a gamecock. With only 1 game left between us and the wild world that is bowl season please take a...


Week 14 ACC Preview

The penultimate episode of the regular season is upon us, and the light at the end of the ACC tunnel has never been brighter. Hope springs eternal on this Thanksgiving morning, hope that South Carolina will have more trouble with the #3 team in the country a second time around, hope that all of our slightly less literate friends from the SEC will have a true Black Friday thanks to Louisville, and most of all hope that those pesky extended family members will go for the pecan pie instead and...


Week 13 ACC Football Review

Week 13 has come and gone; and with it, the opportunity for a bowl game for so many of the ACC's illustrious members. However, that won't slow down Doug and Michael-Robert from piling on the wreckage of once-fun teams like Syracuse, Miami and Pitt. Moreover, are you still missing Willie Taggart? Fear not loyal listeners, the first (and only) segment of Doug's Legal Lessons takes Silly Willie to task for being too lazy to put pen to paper, let alone coach a football team. All that, a little...


Week 13 ACC Football Preview

We're previewing Week 13 on the ACCeptable Benefits Podcast! It's a crucial week for all the teams - Pitt and Virginia Tech battle for the right to sit alongside Virginia atop the Coastal leaderboard; Syracuse heads to Louisville with a chance to get one step closer to a bowl game and some redemption on the season; and Miami takes on old friend Butch Jones in front of 11 people at Marlins Park! Plus, the guys give their running takes when NC State take on Georgia Tech in Bobby Dodd After...


Week 12 ACC Football Review

Hello and welcome to a murderous Monday morning with the gang. From an episode of dateline that hit a little close to home to the collective performance of Wake, GT, and Duke. Death and destruction were the central theme of this week in the ACC, but brighter times are on the horizon. UNC has the development of Sam Howell and a showdown for bowl eligibility with NC State to look forward to, Wake Forest has its sights set on a Birmingham Bowl Championship, and Syracuse can look forward to...


Week 12 Preview

It's Week 12 featuring Thursday night ACCtion! Doug and MR are back for another installment of the ACCeptable Benefits Podcast, breaking down all the games this week and how they effect the Division races. How will Wake Forest manage without their star WR? Does anyone care about Duke and Syracuse when it doesn't involve a basketball? Also, the guys recap some of their preseason prognostications and discuss the latest rumors hitting the Coaching Carousel. All that and always more on this...


Week 11 ACC Football Review

Doug and MR are back to put a bow on Week 11 in the ACC! The guys run through the (admittedly not great) slate of ACC football action and storylines, including who might be the frontrunner to take over at Florida State, whether or not Wake Forest can still make a New Year's Six bowl, and what exactly Miami did to get the offense cranked up against Louisville (if you thought you were making it another year without having to hear about Kyle Wright - guess again). All that, and a special...


Week 11 ACC Football Preview

The domination is complete, the first and only conference to have every team ranked in the college football playoff at one point or another, the ACC extends its run proving once and for all this is the only real conference and all other stats should not be considered when making that judgement. With the speed and grace of a 13 year old escaped convict this podcast covers all the games and provides the kind of detailed analysis that Tommy Lee Jones himself would be proud of. If you care about...


Week 10 Review + Willie Taggart In Memorium

We've wrapped up Week 10 in the ACC; and unfortunately for Patron Saint of the Pod, Willie Taggart (*prayer hands* RIP), there won't be a Week 11. Doug and MR start this week's Review Episode on The ACCeptable Benefits Pod by discussing the end of the Taggart Frat Party in Tallahassee. The guys discuss the factors that led to his downfall, candidates that Florida State may be taking a look at, and running through the buyout numbers (get them checks, Willie!). However, FSU wasn't the only...


Week 9 Reviews & 10 Previews of ACC Football

Fall is upon us. The time of the year with the most closely associated with change, leaves change colors, clocks take a step back, and laptops die faster than South Carolina's bowl hopes after getting thrashed by Tennessee. No place is change more visible than in the ACC; redshirts are being burned with beans and rice, seats are getting hotter than a union busting po boy, and bon temps are being had in and out of the big easy. With only one installment of the pod this week I ask you to...


Week 9 ACC Football Preview

Coming one week after the death of Doug's twenties; time remains undefeated, as the podcast celebrates its quarter life crisis. Much like the Clemson offense, on a field formerly pledged to the papa, this first quarter has had ups and downs, but the next three should be smooth sailing. Twenty five episodes in the podcast has become a lean mean content machine providing cutting analysis on the performance of Duke's front 7, the creative blitz packages unfurled by Louisville, and the amount of...


Week 8 ACC Football Review

Week 8 is in the books and so are Doug's 20's. The Old Man and MR dive right in to chatting about all the action from around the Conference: Virginia and Clemson's impressive victories, Syracuse's struggles and the 6 overtime thriller between North Carolina and Virginia Tech. That said, if you're a fan of mid-2000's Kansas basketball - this is probably the episode for you. All that and always so much more on the ACCeptable Benefits Podcast!


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...
