We continue through a packed time in the sports calendar. We'll give our thoughts on a crazy weekend in college football and where we stand right now in the playoff picture.

Hank, Matt, and Nathan will breakdown the league as it stands right now and talk baseball playoffs. Plus are the Celtics done after the Gordon Hayward injury?

After that Matt and Hank will give you predictions for the big games this weekend between Michigan and Penn State, along with USC and Notre Dame. Plus our thoughts on the Patriots/Falcons and Redskins/Eagles.

Hank, Matt, and Nathan are back this week as we continue through a busy stretch in the sports calendar. First our thoughts on the USMNT failing to qualify for the World Cup and watch it means to the country. 

We'll talk about last weekend's action in college and NFL and discuss where we stand in both. 

Then it's time for our survivor league picks. Both Matt and Hank lost in the same week so we'll pick again until we find a true winner. Needless to say this NFL season has been tricky. 

Nathan will give his thoughts on a survivor game he likes plus the Astros after they moved pass the ALDS. 

Finally some picks and analysis of the big games this coming weekend and some stories from Talladega past.
