On Wednesdays, as anticipation builds towards the weekend’s action, The Solid Verbal serves up a sneak peak of the games ahead. From “home dogs of the week” to their “locks,” Ty and Dan try to figure out the latest college football odds. Though not a betting show, it uses point spreads as a way to offer important context on the week ahead. At the top of each preview episode, the show will cover 3 big games that are sure to drive the Saturday narrative.

Awesome Podcast !!!

I am an army retiree and currently I work as a contractor overseas and I’ve been listening to you for over 10 years now I believe. So, that means I’ve listened to you from so many different countries around the world. To a few, Afghanistan, Iraq, Italy, Germany, South Korea Morocco, India, Mexico, and currently Italy again. I love your show because of both of your knowledge. I also enjoy the comic relief and the insight that you provide. I really do enjoy your show and I will continue listening until you guys stop podcasting, which I hope will be never.

Five stars

These guys are smart and funny enough to rename the trophy between Iowa and Minnesota “Void of Pointsdale” and so classy they immediately retired it. Top tier independent media!

I listened all through last season and this season, and loved it until around mid-December this year when the quality dipped. They could be reading r/cfb threads verbatim. Neither of these guys have any compelling access to college football, and the draw for me was that listening was like hanging out with a couple of friends. The goal seems to be monetizing as quickly as possible, and they’ve lost the plot a bit. Maybe the new direction just isn’t for me. I wish these dudes the best, but I’m canceling my Patreon sub for now. I’ll give a listen in August to see how it’s going.
