The Eleven Dubcast

We've got a game under our belts now and it's time to hit our groove. 

Or is it? What can we really learn from playing a team like Navy?

Well, whatever it is, Johnny and I are here to break it down as much as we dare. We've got your complete Navy wrap-up as we bid farewell to the Midshipmen.

Following our famous "Ask Us Anything" segment, in which listeners are encouraged to do just that by hitting us up on Twitter or emailing to elevendubcast@gmail.com, we discuss the College Football Playoff and various food-related questions. These were a hot topic this week and Johnny has some strong opinions.

We're also joined by The Key Play staff writer Brian Marcolini to talk about Saturday night's upcoming first-ever meeting with the Virginia Tech Hokies. Brian tells us a bit about what to expect from Beamer Ball and dishes on the Hokies' season-opening win over William & Mary.

Here's how it went down:

0:25- Johnny and I relive the magic of the season opener against the Naval Academy in Baltimore and it's kind of like, "We told ya so!"

15:55- Ask Us Anything! And you did. This week, we get Johnny really up in arms about cookies and hot dog toppings, as well as the College Football Playoff.

33:42- Brian Marcolini joins the Dubcast to tell us the deep dark secrets of Beamer Ball.

52:38- We lend a hand to our armed forces academies.

This week our musical selections are "Gold on the Ceiling" by The Black Keys and "Day of the Eagle" by Robin Trower.

We'll be back same time next week!

Johnny, your blast on people that hate on Skyline is goddam heroic.  You deserve a medal.

At the very least, maybe a free 3-way.

Loved the comments on Skyline chili ... but for those of us who live in the south a follow-up describing what Skyline chili is would be in order.  From the picture above it looks like something you serve on spaghetti?  That ain't chili in the Lone Star state, brutha!  But that doesn't mean it can't be good.  More info needed!

Other notes:

* Over and under for times Johnny says "dude" in the next podcast is officially set at 24.  I'm taking the over.

* Everything you said about cookies after "Girl Scout thin mints are over-rated" was clearly meaningless.  Over-rated?  How can the greatest cookie in the history of civilization be over-rated?  When the aliens invade (and they will, oh yes they will) they will want two things: (1) to see Script Ohio in person and (2) thin mints.

* Question for ask us anything: alt unis?  good or bad?  black jerseys?  travesty or swag?  where is the podcast on alt unis?

Great work in the podcast.  It's a great listen for those of us who do not get Buckeye news in our local media every day.  I look forward to it every week.

Decent write-up of Cincinnati chili here (though it is like 25 years old).  The best way to get the uninitiated to like it is Cincinnati chili dip (cream cheese, chili and cheddar cheese).
