Zach Boren is a cultured man of many tastes; travel, love, food... he is an expert in all of the finer things in life.

Zach Boren moved to linebackers and Ohio State's defense got betterThe Boren Supremacy

So today Sarah and I are pleased to announce that Mr. Boren decided to come on the Dubcast and talk a little about what makes up that delicious stew we call college football. Zach answered everything that we threw at him with gusto, including:

- What was behind the critical decision to move him to linebacker in the middle of the season
- How he's preparing for the NFL combine, and what his prospects for the future are
- What it was like playing under three different head coaches during his college career
- Why Millionaire Matchmaker is the greatest show on television

The interview is a lot of fun, so you should definitely check it out. Sarah and I also get into making fun of Michigan for failing to beat a top 15 team on the road, but since it's Ohio State we'll ignore that and laugh anyway. Also recruiting news and Ask Us Anything (elevendubcast@gmail.com), so all in all, we're talking about a pretty packed 42 minutes or so! Here's how everything shook out:

0:22- We kick things off with a bang, talking about Ohio State's non-upset win over an underdog Michigan squad that nearly perfectly matched the spread on the game. VEGAS HAS BECOME SELF AWARE.

10:45- Zach Boren! As mentioned, a ton of topics covered here, at least in part because Zach is a pretty straightforward dude who gets right to the point. Not hard to see why Urban likes the guy so much.

28:51- Ask Us Anything! Where you, the listener, can ask Sarah and I any question about anything you see fit by sending us an e-mail to the address listed above. Today's question involves dogs and football, and the Dubcast begins to veer dangerously into Air Bud territory.

Music this week for the Dubcast was a little Mos Def remix, Friendship Update by the Go! Team, and No More Mr. Nice Guy by Alice Cooper. And that's it! Thanks again to Zach Boren, and we'll see you next week!

I'm looking forward to the YouTube clip of "Hitler angry at Chip Kelly Bolting to Nfl." Should be another classic.

Johnny; it is such a coincidence that you were occupied with doing something else and could not pay attention to the first 15 minutes of the basketball game.  Trey Burke had the same problem.

Johnny and Sarah, I can't believe that neither of you mentioned golden retrievers in your dog-filled football lineups!  They sound like some good ball-hawking safeties or defensive backs to me... or even a hybrid tight end/wide receiver.  A little more obscure, but I have an Australian cattle dog who can catch anything thrown in the same zip code and he's pretty freakishly quick/agile.  He could be your Wes Welker!
Anyways, I love the Dubcast.  Thanks for the great work -- I love listening to it.  It fuels my week.
