It's a two-parter today. First, we talk about Chris Kingsbury with BHGP favorite The Kingsbury Factor (before you listen to the podcast, you're going to want to watch and read this). There's discussion of the essence of Kingsbury, roster exaggeration, haircuts, the Kingsbury pythons, and Ol' Grand-Dad whiskey.Later, we discuss about three bowl games with Graham Filler of Off-Tackle Empire before his date gets restless and tears him away from the show, probably to go see Bright Eyes. It's...

A couple of years ago, Maize n' Brew Dave and I put together a podcast called Maize Pants. In retrospect, it should have been called Black and Brew, because that's a far better name. In any case, it was short-lived and a lot of fun, but neither of us do this as a full-time job, and we ran out of time, and Maize Pants went away.We've now reached Michigan week, and while Maize n' Brew is under new management (Dave's still there, but he's not managing things anymore), the connection remains....

A quick note: We're going to change the format of the podcast a bit. During football season, we usually previewed games with bloggers from opposing sites, but Ross was already previewing games, usually with the same bloggers asking the same questions. The podcast got a little boring. So we're going to leave the previews to Ross, and the podcast is going to be for conversations about other stuff.For today, "other stuff" is Iowa basketball. We talk about the pending hoopyball season with...

It's Penn State week, so we're getting the band back together for the old Slow States podcast. They are confident. It's an odd feeling.

The Black Heart Gold Podcast returns this week to discuss the upcoming Iowa-Michigan State, the icy Ferentz-Dantonio relationship, Jerel Worthy's resemblance to a fainting goat, and Michigan State's susceptibility to the screen pass with Chris Vannini, managing editor at The Only Colors. In between, there are phones ringing, dogs barking, and possibly someone playing a guiro. If you can get past the ambient noise of a very festive farmer's market, it's a pretty good podcast.

We've had a lot of things on this podcast: Reporters, broadcasters, bloggers...well, that's pretty much it. We've not had a rocket scientist until now. Of course, the rocket scientist isn't the Minnesota fan, because rockets don't run on snow and unwarranted smugness, but still. It's a fucking rocket scientist. That's Paradigm, who is a Florida resident but comes from Minnesota stock, and we have wanted him on a podcast for a while, so why not. Also, our old nemesis MV from Fringe Bowl...

For this season's inaugural HATECAST*, we're talking Northern Illinois Huskies football with Mike Breese of Red and Black Attack, the SB Nation Northern Illinois blog. We talk spread offenses, Northwestern influences, MACtion, and something about a Red and Black Chant.

It's the week before the first game week, so it's time for an annual BHGP tradition: Marc Morehouse is here to drop a knowledge bomb on the Iowa depth chart. But, before that, Brent Yarina of the Big Ten Network drops by to just talk about some stuff, like why Shonn Greene was missing from his list of the top five halfbacks of the BTN era. Yarina's on for about the first half-hour, with Mas Casa taking the last hour. What I'm saying is, it's a long podcast.

As our conference preview podcasts continue, as we discuss SEC SPEED with our good friend Kleph, editor of Roll Bama Roll, supporter of Hayden Fry, and closet Iowa fan. We discuss Alabama -- a lot of Alabama -- as well as John L. Smith's impact on southern football, Mark Richt's lack of control, Tennessee's batshit insanity, and just how many books will be present for Vandy-Northwestern in September.

Our series of conference previews continues, with Joe from The Key Play(@thekeyplay) joining us to talk about the ACC and scipiotex of Barking Carnival(@barkingcarnival) previewing the Big XII. We also shoehorn in some Greg Davisdiscussion, because, well, why the hell not.

Nine months ago, we podcasted with Chris and Kevin. The topics of conversation included whether Joe Paterno would retire, whether Jay Paterno had a chance of inheriting the throne, and what was wrong with the Nittany Lion offense. Nine months later, Joe Paterno and Jay Paterno are both gone, the offense is just about the least offensive thing about their reign, and Bill O'Brien presides over the smoldering rubble of a once-great program now reduced to, if not death, then intensive care....

We like all different conferences, we like every kind of fair. Look around, you bet we'll be there. Hot metal in the sun, pony in the air, MAC and Big East at the fair. What I'm saying is, we're going to loosely preview the other conferences over the next few weeks, starting tonight with a podcast favorite -- Alan of Over the Pylon -- to discuss the Mid-American Conference and a first-timer -- Mark Ennis of Big East Coast Bias -- to talk BEAST FOOTBALL. They're both excellent. Trust us.

With both the reigning defensive player of the year and a newly-minted starting quarterback coming from the Iowa football program, the CFL has become must-watch offseason television. Of course, that means we have to understand Canadian football, and that's not exactly the easiest thing to do. Here to make sense of it for us is Andrew Bucholtz, editor of Yahoo's Canadian football blog, 55 Yard Line, and a longtime Friend of the Pants.

You might remember how we kind of dismissed Chick-Fil-A as completely overrated and thoroughly mediocre a couple of weeks ago. Many took umbrage, but none did so with the class and charm of Senator Blutarsky, proprietor of Get the Picture, keeper of the Mumme Poll, and fan of all things Georgia Bulldog. It was an issue that needed resolution, so Blutarsky joined us for the Season Four premiere of Black Heart Gold Podcast. There's some playoff stuff here, too, because he's probably written...

For a year now, we've been religiously reading the Kingsbury Factor, the ridiculously entertaining blog dedicated to college basketball in general and undersized bomb-chucking shooting guards in particular. Their patron saint: Chris Kingsbury, former Iowa Hawkeye and the subject of many an urban legend both on and off the court. They're here this week for the podcast to discuss which bombers you should be watching in the Sweet Sixteen, who's making the Final Four, what we can expect from...

WOAH DOUBLE PODCAST: A rare two-podcast week, you guys! I talked Iowa hoops, Big Ten tournament, coaching changes, and beer with Justin VanLaere of Hawkeye Nation dot com. Mostly, it was just a chance for us to catch up with one of our favorite Iowa writers and a Friend of the Pants.

Iowa finally got around to hiring Greg Davis yesterday. Fortunately, the delay gave us plenty of time to set up a podcast with Peter Bean, purveyor of SBN Texas blog Burnt Orange Nation, EDSBS Live co-host, Friend of the Pants, and Greg Davis aficionado. We discuss Davis' stint with Texas, his recruiting prowess, what the hell happened in 2010, and whether he's got a wandering eye. Also, Adam's dog finds out about the hire about 20 minutes in and drowns everyone out with her laughter....

In Podcast 73, we talk about this week's Nebraska-Iowa game with Erin Sorensen (Twitter @helloerinmarie) of Husker Locker. it includes a discussion of what the HEROES TROPHY PRESENTED BY HY-VEE might be (yes, these are not recorded live), why Friday will see the Big Ten's two toughest halfbacks, the magical resurgance of Nebraska's secondary, and the history of Carter Lake, Iowa. It's also Team Pizza certified.
