The ‘It Me College Football’ Podcast, Week 13: A Very Special Thanksgiving Edition

Happy Turkey Day, friends. This year, we’re thankful most of all for you, for allowing us into your college football routine and for making us feel loved and special each and every day. Starting up the college football coverage at Uproxx has been difficult and labor intensive, but it is made easier when I know that you’re out there supporting us and giving helpful feedback.

Obviously the first year isn’t perfect, and there’s plenty I can do differently and improve on, but the biggest reason I keep going and keep covering college football isn’t for me; it’s for you. I know other people say that, but I mean it. I’ve almost given up plenty of times. I’ve almost walked away from it all. But something keeps me coming back – and that’s the people who send notes, email me, text me, call me and shoot nice tweets during the season. It means a lot, more than probably any of you will ever know.

Anyway, this week’s podcast brings our good friend Adam Kramer from Bleacher Report to the show. He’s really great, and chances are you follow him and read him and watch his videos already, but if you somehow aren’t, well, go ahead and do that, okay?

We have lots to talk about this week, including:

  • The Playoff, seriously, lots of good Playoff discussion.
  • Iowa!
  • The weird routines and idiosyncrasies of being a college football writer.
  • Rivalry Week and who is most likely to go down or make things super weird.
  • The tough job the committee has in making this compelling, but also putting the best Top 4 teams in.
  • The oddities of this year’s Heisman field.
  • Thanksgiving talk.

As always, comments and tweets are always welcome. Subscribe to us on iTunes, too! You can find Robby at (@rkalland) and Martin at (@martinrickman). And Adam is at (@KegsnEggs). Football is great and so are friends, but football is always better with friends.

Special thanks to the band Annabel for our intro and outro music. They’re really good. You should buy their music at their website or perhaps see them play a show some time.
