There are show notes, I'm sure. Mark and Peter are too busy previewing the Fiesta Bowl. FIESTA BOWL!

Greetings ladies and gentlemen. In lieu of recording something extra on Christmas night, the intrepid Mattisbear took the initiative and sat down with Matt Sayman earlier this week. Matt is a Baylor alum and author of The Leftovers: Basketball, Baylor, Betrayal and Beyond. He was one of the few to stick around when Coach Scott Drew came to Baylor and started this incredible run.

Matt sat down with... Matt for about half an hour of basketball talk. They cover the book and the events surrounding the coaching transition, adjusting to Coach Scott Drew's style, this year's team and an appearance he'll be making at an upcoming Baylor basketball game on January 11. You definitely don't want to miss this.

If you haven't picked it up yet, The Leftovers is available on his website, theleftoversbook.comAmazon, or Barnes & Noble. Definitely check it out, it's a great read and you'll fly through it. It would make a great late Christmas present!

No clever title this week, just the white hot truth: The Baylor Bears are Big 12 Champs. 

That's right folks. It's finally edited. You watched it live, now listen to it… edited. Between uploading issues, show derailments and dog talk, this may have been the most difficult episode to edit. But it's done, and now ready for your enjoyment. Join Mark, Prashanth, Amy Pagitt and Peter (again) as we exult in the triumph of the Baylor Bears over the Texas Longhorns to clinch the first-ever Big 12 Championship and trip to a BCS Bowl Game. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll probably shake your head in disgust. It's all good.

If you missed the original recording and have a deep, burning desire (you should probably get that checked out) to watch it again, you can check it out right here. Then you can come back and listen to the edited show. It's about a whole 15 minutes shorter! Wow!

News Team, Assemble (live version)!

THE BAYLOR BEARS ARE BIG 12 CHAMPIONS AND ARE GOING TO THE FIESTA BOWL. Is there anything else that's really newsworthy? I guess maybe one or two things. But THE BAYLOR BEARS ARE BIG 12 CHAMPIONS! (It's still really fun to type)

Texas Recap

Dominating performance by the defense, the offense wakes up, KJ gets a pick-six negated by a stupid, stupid call (as well as having another possible INT bounce off the back of his helmet. DOINK.), and much, much more. We get a little sidetracked, too. But that's not really anything new.

Picks of the Week

Prashanth is the man. Peter did pretty well, too. So did Mark. Amy picked Duke. Heh heh heh. Oh Amy.

Bear Droppings

You know the drill. It's calls. And you can still call That Good Ol' Baylor Phone Line! Do it!

Greetings, fellow ODBers. This may surprise and even delight you, but it's time for another episode of OurDailyPodcast. Please, contain your joy. Or don't, either way is fine by me. As long as your unrestrained joy is at minimum decibel levels. We can't have you going into the game on Saturday with even the hint of hoarseness. You're going to need your voice all day long.

Before we get to the show notes, I want to make a special request that's also in the photo caption. Can we make sure that Fringe Monster is saved a spot on the front row of the stands after running the field? Fringe Monster certainly deserves to be front and center. Fringe Monster has become somewhat of a talisman, I feel. Let's make this happen, good people of Our Daily Bears.

On to the Show Notes!

News Team Assemble!

You all know this, but students CRUSHED the ticket draw in less than 48 hours. It's a little sad that so many students won't be able to get into the game, but you have to remember that the South Endzone was sold out months ago. There will be onsite watch parties happening, so maybe there will be some way that some magic can happen.

Don't forget about The Official ODB Meetup! Check out the link for the details and location. It's going to be fun. Can somebody bring name tags?

A little bit of Podcast news! Amy Pagitt will join us Sunday for a special episode. Listen to the pod for more details!

Let's Talk Texas

And I'm not talking about the state. We can all agree that the state of Texas is the greatest state. No, we're talking about the big game this weekend, and everything you could possibly want to know about it! Offense! Defense! Weather! HOW WILL TEXAS BE ABLE TO STAND THIS WEATHER WHEN THEY'RE SO FAR SOUTH OF WACO AND COMPLETELY NOT USED TO PLAYING IN THESE CONDITIONS LIKE THE BEARS ARE? These are the burning questions that we struggle with and attempt, to the best of our ability, to answer.

Picks of the Week!

Lots of picks of the week this week, though only two Big 12 slate games Since Lil' Amy P is going to be joining us on Sunday, her picks are included!


Special Audio!

In honor of the very last game played at The Case and the last regular season preview episode for football season, I put together a little audio segment with the help of some of the friends of ODP*. I hope you enjoy it. Oh yeah, it also did produce the Google Voice Transcript of the Week, too:

MattisBear: Hey guys, It's Matt, is there trying on working and I faxed in on Saturday. I don't see how we lose this one with emotion, implications on. And Don't go to work on longhorns. I said, we went by. 3 touchdowns and potentially wanted to feel well, one top of that give us and 4521 way fingers.

*Kirobaito also sent in his prediction as yet another esteemed guest of the show; sadly, something happened with his audio message and his prediction cut out completely; I didn't realize it until it was too late to get him to resend his prediction. Sorry about that Kirobaito! Know that you are loved and appreciated all the same.

Questions for ODBers

Given my focus on getting the audio segment together and asking you guys to call in with your predictions, I completely forgot to ask for No Huddles and Community Feedback questions until very late. We did get a couple of questions, though, so we decided to pose them to you here!

From @BaylorRising: Is the reason we are projected to not get an at large bid because of  size, recentness of loss or brand?

From @JohnJayMJr: I'm curious about other BU fans interactions w/ UT fans so far this week/year. So far for me, they've been incredibly nice & respectful. What about everyone else?

Also, don't forget to stay tuned after the show for the predictions and calls of those who lent their voices to our efforts! To all who called That Good Ol' Baylor Phone Line, thank you very much!

Greetings, friends, we're back in action a day later than normal but putting our signature spin on the weekend's events! Prashanth, Mark, and I are all back this week to talk some TCU recap, amazeballs student fan ticket draw, recap Peter's horrific odds laying skills in Picks of the week, listen to your Bear Droppings (in record numbers!), and much much more.

News & Notes

  • Bryce Petty Commits to Baylor! Oh wait, that doesn't sound right. Bryce Petty is coming back for his Senior Season! There, that's better.
  • 6700+ student tickets were pulled in the first 7 hours that the tickets were made available. Students are TURNT!
  • Gary Patterson said something about somebody, I think. We talk a little bit about that. (Bonus points for who can identify the drop I use in this segment)


TCU Recap

Lots of fun here. As hard as that game was to watch, there are really good points to take away from the game, and there are many positives to look at heading into Texas on Saturday.

Picks of the Week

Mark: 5-2
Fank: 3-4
Prashanth: 3-4
Peter: 2-5

Bear Droppings!

Some seriously good calls this week, and in record number yet again! Thanks for sending those in. Remember, call That Good Ol' Baylor Phone Line at (774) 25-SICEM (257-4236) to leave us your questions, feedback, and Bear Droppings! Save that number to your phone. Then call us from The Case on Saturday. Or immediately thereafter, if you don't freeze. You know, it's all good.


Since we are getting this show out a day later than normal, I'm going to go ahead and give my special request today so that you have a full 24 hours to respond. Here's what I'd like you to do:

Between now and tomorrow afternoon, call That Good Ol' Baylor Phone Line at (774) 25-SICEM and leave us your game predictions on the line! Identify yourself (your name or your ODB screen name, or twitter, any of the above would work fine), give your prediction for the game and what bowl you want to see the Bears in (that's attainable). If you want to add in a clever prediction or something witty, that's fine too, but make sure to predict the game and the bowl.

Can you guys do that for me? If enough call in and do that, I'll append your predictions onto the end of the show. If someone nails the score correctly, we might see about doing something fun. Thanks!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Happy Thanksgiving back. We recorded this on Tuesday night, but storage restrictions only enabled me to upload the pod this evening. At any rate, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

News & Notes

There was some news, I'm pretty sure. I can't remember.

TCU Preview

We talk about TCU a bit, too. We talk about other stuff in this segment, but I'm pretty sure mostly it's all about TCU.

Picks of the Week (picks of the weeeeeeek)

Picks. Picks of the week. There are extra games in there, but I didn't bother to write them down. I'm a horrible person.

Community Feedback

We got to most of the questions you sent us, but not all of them. Sorry about that. We went kinda long, almost two hours of raw audio (which I got down to about an hour fifteen or so). You'll know what I'm talking about.

Greetings, my friends. Relax, take a load off, and gather 'round your favorite podcast listening device of choice. Four friends gathered one fateful Wednesday night to record a podcast known as OurDailyPodcast. As Amy, David, Mark, and Peter sat down to share their thoughts on all things Baylor, they did not expect or imagine what was about to happen. What ensued over the next two hours was equal parts hilarity and terrifying. The name of Texas Tech was invoked. Offense and defense was confused regularly. The simplest of names was mispronounced. It was a dumpster fire of epic proportions. Yet, from the ashes, a podcast episode arose. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you that podcast.

News & Notes

We've experienced ALL of the injuries! Oh noes!

Oklahoma State Preview

Contrary to what Peter may say (many, many times), this is not the Texas Tech preview week. It's the Oklahoma State preview. We're here to calm your fears. Or maybe exacerbate them. I'm not entirely sure.

No Huddle

A very good set of No Huddle questions (thanks to you, loyal listener) is immediately driven right into a ditch. Also, this is for Amy and anyone else who hasn't read it: Meet BEEFTANK, the Jaguars' 400-pound quarterback. Also this: Jaguars 42, Broncos 0: The return of BEEFTANK

Picks of the Week (picks of the weeeeeeek)

Here are your picks! Reminder: these are for entertainment purposes only.

  • (Fank, Mark) Aggy @ LSU (-4.5)(Amy, Peter)
  • OU @ K-State (-4.5) (Unanimous)
  • Kansas @ Iowa State (-5) (Unanimous)
  • (Peter, Amy, Mark) (-9.5) Baylor @ Oklahoma State (Fank)

Community Feedback

First off, let me say that you guys are AWESOME. You came out of the woodwork and put together an impressive list of signs. You even created a fan post about it. If you haven't clicked over to it, you should do so now! We weren't able to get to all of the suggested GameDay signs, but we did give you several of our favorites. Plus, we're putting our favorites to a vote! Plus, I still want to hear more sign options in the comments, so keep sharing!

A couple of the sign ideas needed formatting that the poll options couldn't provide. Here they are:

oso.johnny's sign:

pbpope's sign:

Can God Save a hooker Orange Pride Escort?

We got a couple of calls on That Good Ol' Baylor Phone Line, but both of them were really difficult to hear. Sorry about that.

Greetings, everyone! It's time for another episode of OurDailyPodcast. This week the co-host of The Solid Verbal podcast, Ty Hildenbrandt, joins us to talk about the BlackOUt and much, much more. Ty is a HUGE friend of the show, providing a lot of behind-the-scenes assistance, advice, and support as we worked to get the show off the ground and build a following. His friendship has been absolutely invaluable to us, and we're thrilled that he could join us for an hour (or a little more)! Without further ado, here are the show notes!

Oklahoma Blacked Out!

We jump right into the action this week with discussion of Baylor's 41-12 victory over OU. Ty takes his medicine.

Picks of the Week

With the exception of our game, Ty's the man at picking. He got all of the games right. Except ours. Which I tried to convince him why we would cover… He just wouldn't listen. That's too bad.

Bear Droppings! and Community Feedback

We only had two calls on That Good Ol' Baylor Phone Line, which is pretty much our fault. We didn't send out any requests until way late for calls, so you guys didn't have a reminder. But go ahead and save this number into your phones so that you can remember for next week: (774) 25-SICEM (257-4236). Then set yourself a reminder for like 9:30 or 10 pm Saturday. Then you won't forget!

BLACKOUT TIME! We're excited. This is raw audio for the most part as you'll notice in the first couple of minutes, folks, since we're doing such a quick turnaround to get it out to you, but it still works. It's long, but would you expect anything different from us? Enjoy it on your way to the game! Enjoy it at the game! But do not enjoy it during the game. Enjoy the game itself.

News & Notes

It's a sellout, and a tarp-off, and 10,500 students pulled tickets. It's going to be amazing. Is it possible for a fan base to be too turnt up? I don't think so. Podcast side note: Ty Hildenbrandt will join us on Sunday night to recap the OU game!

Oklahoma Preview

Important things are discussed here that have an impact on the lives of many.

No Huddle

We put out the call, and you guys answered. A great round of questions, folks. Thanks. Also: the results of the No Huddle question I asked on Twitter. You all agree that we'll break the record. ALSO: Who do you think should play the villain coach to Art Briles' hero coach in the Hollywood movie?

Picks of the Week

For entertainment purposes only, here are the picks of the week. I'll update these notes at some point.

Community Feedback!

Thanks for sending in your questions! Great stuff.

Apologies for this going up a day later than anticipated and promised. Events have conspired against me in the podcasting world, friends. What began as your typical busy Monday (with the added intensity of trying to prepare for being gone this Thursday afternoon) quickly turned more stressful when we discovered a water leak at the house out of which we just moved. With closing scheduled for Wednesday, it's made for quite a bit of scrambling, stress, and strain on the pocketbook. As you can imagine, getting the podcast out to you took a bit of a back seat. Thanks for your patience.

Weird show notes this week to go with a sort of weird show. The move last weekend left me somewhat unprepared and out of sorts (since I had to find a new recording locale) and slower Internet really threw off my game. Couple all of this with an open date that didn't have that many story lines and presto! You've got yourselves a disorganized podcast! BUT enough of the sad trombone complaining! WE HAVE AMY PAGITT ON THE PODCAST!

If you don't know Amy and you're on Twitter, you're doing Twitter wrong. Amy is a rabid Baylor sports fan whose passion rivals (and possibly exceeds) our own, but her sharp wit and sassy commentary make her an absolute must-follow. She joins us this week for talk about the picks of the week, Baylor's rankings, Clint Trickett's dreaminess, and much, much more. I could tell you more about it, but why ruin the surprise? Come join us for some serious scattershooting fun.

It's a Friday with no Baylor game to look forward to tomorrow. I'm not sure there's a more depressing thought. Let not your hearts be troubled, ODBers! The OurDailyPodcast team is here to brighten your downtrodden spirits and they've brought a very special set of guests to the podcast! This time around, Mattisbear, DFank_BU and Tedvid all join the pod to talk tarp removal tactics, midseason roundtable review, picks of the week, and much much more. General hilarity ensues, plus an extra heaping of outtakes. I didn't even try to cut the pod down to an hour in length, so you're getting the extended edition today.

News & Notes

The tarp is off, and you know that now. If you don't, you've been living under a rock.

Roundtable Round Robin

We're talking Midseason Review on both sides of the ball, as well as taking some questions and listening to an audio call. Please note: In no way, shape, or form do we believe that "women are often possession." This comes straight from the Google Voice transcript. Listen to the show and you'll know what I'm talking about.

No Huddle

After putting out a late-in-the-day call for extra No Huddle questions and getting quite a few great ones, we ran out of time to do the segment this week. To all that sent in questions, thank you very much and I'm sorry we didn't get to them.

Picks of the Week

For entertainment purposes only, here are the picks of the week, including Amy's picks for discussion on Sunday's pod. If Prashanth ever sends me his, I'll update these notes with those also.

  • (Unanimous) West Virginia @ TCU (-13.5)
  • (Ted)Kansas @ Texas (-28) (AGP, Fank, Peter, Matt, Mark)
  • (AGP) Iowa State @ K-State (-17) (Matt, Ted, Peter, Mark)
  • (Ted, Peter, Mark) Oklahoma State @ Texas Tech (-2.5) (AGP, Fank)



There's other stuff that happens between the Picks and the Outtakes, but you know that already. But, a word about the outtakes: There is a little bit of off-color humor that kicks off the outtakes, so if you're super sensitive to such material, you've been warned. In the world of off-color humor, though, it's extremely mild. Enjoy your five minutes of outtakes, though.

A day late, but not a dollar short, the gang is back for Episode 14 of OurDailyPodcast. Mark, Prashanth, and Peter rock your eardrums with some Blackout OU talk, Kneecappin' Kansas Recappin', Big 12 Action, and much, much more. We ensure you that there will be very little chicken talk, though there might be some. Let's do this.

News & Notes!

Kansas Goes Down, 59-14

Baylor's offense has a "slow start," but then surges forward in an impressive performance. There's fun to be had here.

Big 12 Picks of the Week Recap

Hey, look! Peter didn't get every single matchup wrong this week!

Bear Droppings!

We asked, and you answered! Well, you called and left us a voicemail, really. It's Bear Droppings! Thanks for all that called in and left us your Bear Droppings. Remember, you can give us a call at (774) 25-SICEM (257-4236) and leave us your reactions and thoughts we'll put them in the show! Only you can make this segment great!

Greetings, ODBers! It wouldn't be Thursday without OurDailyPodcast! Well, that is, unless something went wrong and the podcast doesn't drop until Friday, in which case it wouldn't be Friday without OurDailyPodcast. But I think we're safe this week. It's a bit of an unusual week for us on the podcast. Prashanth was unavailable due to real life commitments (something called school. I don't know what that is—I've blocked it out), so Matt Is Bear was going to fill in. But, literally three minutes before we were slated to record, he texted me that he'd be unable to attend due to a family emergency. He made the right decision. Mark and I decided to double-team this podcast instead of our standard 3-technique. Yes I'm mixing football terminology in ways that don't make sense. Roll with it!

First things first. If you're curious as to what the heck is going on with the nicknames this week, just know that they are anagrams of Greg Schiano. They're an homage to one of the funniest pieces that you can read this week: Jon Bois' incredible Breaking Madden: The Buccaneers and their 44 Greg Schianos. I'm not even kidding, it had me giggling uncontrollably. If you haven't yet, go read it. The podcast will be here for you, and you shouldn't divert your attention from either. And now, onto the show notes!

News & Notes

Kansas Jayhawk Preview

If our boys take care of business, then I think we both know what's going to happen. So do work, fellas.

No Huddle

Solid questions this week, you guys. AND HERE'S ONE FOR YOU TO PARTICIPATE WITH! From a couple of sources: What is your favorite play of the season thus far? Answer in the comments!

Wow, what a weekend, and what an eventful couple of days for our team. Your regular team of Mark, Prashanth and Peter are back to cover all of the weekend's goings on for your listening enjoyment. Here are your show notes!


News & Notes!


  • Baylor Needs YOU: In order to pull the tarp for Oklahoma (thus pulling it forever), Baylor needs to sell 1,700 tickets by THIS FRIDAY. So: Buy your tickets. If you aren't going to this game, go. If you can't, buy tickets and give them to friends/relatives/random people on the street and/or Internet. Just go. #BurnTheTarp
  • Baylor up to #5 in the Coaches' Poll, #6 in the AP!
  • Baylor is #8 in the BCS! Prashanth talks about why the computer polls kinda suck right now.


Big 12 Recap/Picks of the Week

Bottom line: We're terrible at picking games. But you know this.

Baylor Trounces Iowa State, 71-7!

All of the superlatives. It was beautiful. Fun times in front of an amazing Homecoming crowd.

For Lack of a Better Title, Knee-Jerk Reactions

We still need a great name for this. We've had a couple of suggestions, none of which have knocked the socks off. Feel free to put them in the show notes. Additionally, we only got four calls this week. We'd love to build this segment more, but we can't do it without your help! After the Kansas Game this week, give us a call at (774) 25-SICEM (257-4236) and leave us your reactions to the game and we'll put them in the show! Only you can make this segment great!

So, this episode is dropping WAY later than I'd originally hoped it would. I almost finished editing before work this morning but was in an all-day mediation and I didn't get home until a little while ago, so I'm just now getting this week's show up for your enjoyment.

This week, Spencer Hall joins us as our extra special guest! Normally we'd be previewing Iowa State, but there was so much fun to be had that we sort of threw convention out the window and went with it. Good times were had by all.

I don't even know that we have show notes for this week. Spencer Hall talks about Art Briles, Baylor football and the state of the program, plus he answers your No Huddle questions. Then Prashanth gives you the shortest preview in podcast history and we make our weekly picks (Mark, we need yours for Sunday). That's all I've got. Sorry folks, I'm in a rush to get this one out.

It's Monday. You're tired, you're sad that you have six whole days (if you count today, which I am to make this sound more depressing) until Baylor football takes the field again. Never fear folks, we've got a little podcast pick-me-up for you this morning! Our first recap episode is out and available to download now! Join Mark, mattisbear and I (pbpope) as we spend UNDER AN HOUR talking about Baylor Football. That's right, we did it. We kept it under an hour. But enough of me. On with the show notes!

Recappin' Kansas State


  • The Defense - it wasn't pretty, but they did enough. And it wasn't as bad as you might have thought.
  • The Offense - again, they did enough, but there are definite things to work on!
  • Some fun with penalties sprinkled in there
  • Takeaways and lessons to be learned


Big 12 Quick Review

Talk about a weird Saturday.

Picks of the Week

Yeah, we picked terribly. It's pretty funny how bad our picks were, actually.

The Unnamed Knee-Jerk Reaction Segment

Seven of you guys were AMAZING and sent in your voicemails. That was fantastic. We play them for your enjoyment. Don't forget that you can call the voicemail line (which also needs a better name) at (774) 25-SICEM (257-4236) and leave us your voicemails. Another option would be to record a voice note on your smartphone and email it to OurDailyPodcast (at) gmail (dot) com.

Greetings, ODB'ers (ODBears? I like ODBears)! It's time for yet another episode of everyone's favorite official podcast of Our Daily Bears. Those other official podcasts of Our Daily Bears can suck it. We're the best. Join Mark, Prashanth and I as we wax poetic about the West Virginia game and all sorts of other fun topics. No special guest, but Mark Seymour is so money that we don't even need one this week. Try if you dare, but nobody can handle the bling that Prashanth brings. And now, onto the show notes!

All of that which was before had to be thrown out the window when about 25 minutes into the podcast, Prashanth's audio cut out and failed to return. 90 minutes of attempted resuscitation were an utter failure, and Prashanth's audio was pronounced dead on the scene. Due to his being a medical student, Prashanth was unavailable to re-record something tonight, so Mark and I decided to cut some audio quick and dirty. Mark put out the call on Twitter, and our very own Kirobaito answered the call. He joins us this week as our super-special lifesaving guest. Thanks, Kiro! You are a gentleman and a scholar.

PLEASE NOTE: The audio for this episode is probably pretty rough. I didn't edit it at all, and I recoded it all on my machine instead of using separate tracks like we normally do. Hopefully it's still listenable. It's pared down, so we don't have everything that would have been in the show had we recorded normally and it's a little more free-flowing. But, here's what you would have heard had we been able to give you the original audio. As it stands, we didn't really review WVU and spent only a couple of minutes on the preview. The rest is more fun stuff. But, here are the show notes as the would have been had all gone according to our original plan:

News & Notes

  • BIG HUGE PODCAST NEWS (you gotta listen to get it for now!)
  • The Solid Verbal says Baylor's floor is 10 wins. What the what. Seriously, if you don't yet, you should listen to their show. It's wildly entertaining.
  • Bill Connelly vs. Dan Rubenstein: The Baylor Love Fest Battle (this was totally going to be my show title at first)
  • Advanced stats are absolutely bonkers about Baylor right now. What the what!

West Virginia Breakdown

Yep, it was pretty amazing.

The No Huddle

Seriously, I thought you guys did fantastic with the questions this week. Keep 'em coming!

This week Bill Connelly of Football Study HallRock M Nation, and much, much more joins us to talk Baylor Football and lots of other stuff too! Bill's a great guy and a genius. We hope you enjoy him on this episode! SHOW NOTES!

Fun With Bill Connelly

No Huddle With Bill Connelly!

That's right, folks. You've been waiting with bated breath for the latest episode of OurDailyPodcast. Well, put the torches and pitchforks away, because Episode 7 is available for listening and download! And oh yeah, Dan Rubenstein joins us to talk about a wide variety of topics, including the potential vacancy of a certain head coaching position and Baylor's connection thereto, uniforms, Oregon and Baylor, the SEC, table side guac, and the sustainability of Baylor's success. We had some technical issues, so his audio sometimes cuts out. At any rate... Show notes! Oven the fluid conversation this week the structure is really barebones.

Fun with Dan Rubenstein

Special No Huddle with Dan Rubenstein!!

The ULM Recap

A couple of people were gracious enough to send in voicemail questions and we weren't able to get to them with Dan. Our apologies to Mark T. Bowers and PoppyBear on that front. Community Feedback was focused on questions to Dan, so we didn't have a separate segment for it.

Extra Special Shoutouts!

Open weeks are the worst. The Worst. With Baylor's first open week of three this week, we try to cope (and probably fail miserably, but I'll let you all be the judge of that). This week Matt T. Wilson joins us to try and cheer us up. Apparently he decided to show up with a potato for a microphone, which explains his audio quality. Sorry about that. We'll work on it for the next time he comes on the show. As usual, we break our time records, but only by a little. Hey, when it's an open date, all bets are off and things get a little crazy on OurDailyPodcast. #KissTheBiceps. Read on for show notes, but first, here are a few important things to keep in mind for this episode of the podcast:

From Merriam-Webster Online:

lis·ten·er·ship noun \ˈlis-nər-ˌship, ˈli-sən-ər-

the audience for a radio program or recording; also : the number or kind of that audience

Ferdinand. You'll understand in a little bit.

And, now, The Show Notes!

The Triumphant Return of News & Notes!

The Buffalo Recap

No Huddle

"Swag" Discussion and Big 12 Look-ahead featuring Matt T. Wilson

#KissTheBiceps, people. Use it. It's going viral.

First off, let me just apologize for the delay in getting this episode online. I had some serious challenges in editing this episode. My mic, which has usually been the most stable of the three, suddenly decided that it wanted to pick up the audio coming through my headphones, so I had to mute basically every second of my track that I wasn't talking. It was tedious. Add on top of that a really hectic day and you've got a recipe for a podcast episode being posted after 10:00 p.m. CDT. My bad. And oh yeah, it's long. We tried, folks. We really tried. Okay, maybe we didn't, but we thought about it.  Anyway, show notes!

ODB has Its Biggest Month Ever! And we're just getting started.

Ladies and gentlemen, gather 'round your podcast player of choice and enjoy Episode 3 of OurDailyPodcast! Right off the bat you'll notice that gone is the creepy, borderline-satanic "announcer" voice (and by announcer voice I mean my voice, modulated) in the intro. Instead, you'll be welcomed by the incredibly talented Chris Griesemer. Chris is a voice over actor and Baylor grad who graciously agreed to help us out with the intro and most likely some bumpers if we ever get around to having officially-named segments. He's doing this out of the kindness of his heart, so go check out his website at voiceforanychoice.com and if you need voice over work done, hire him now. Just listen to some of those demos. They're amazing.

My sincerest apologies to those asking for a shorter podcast. We really tried to keep the time down, but we got carried away and couldn't help ourselves. So, once again, this podcast comes in at around an hour and a half. We'll definitely be trying to work that down closer to an hour next week with the start of the season.

Also, joining us this week as our first ever special guest is BearsTruth's Brian Ethridge! Brian joins us for the full length of the podcast, providing valuable insight into Waffle House Wofford as we break down what the Bears can expect this Saturday. I must say, I like his predictions too. Listen to the show below or follow the links to download this week's episode. But first, the show notes!
