Okay, yes, I did go for the blindingly obvious when naming this episode, but with apologies to the family estate of Walt Whitman (whose seminal 1865 poem was talking about the recently assassinated Abraham Lincoln), it's kind of hard not to when Urban Meyer decides to make about half the football team a captain for the 2017 season.
Slight exaggeration, maybe, but honestly this move leaves Beau and I scratching our heads a little bit. What isn't so shocking is how J.K. Dobbins is quickly moving up the charts as the Next Big Thing, and we chart his progress through the earth's atmosphere and to the moon. Even though he's yet to play a college down yet in a real game. Plus, Ask Us Anything (do that here) and, of course, Game of Thrones time. I've got some... issues... with the most recent episode. To put it mildly.

0:00- Nine is a pretty high number. I'm not the kind of guy who really gets worked up about someone being a captain in general, and well, maybe Urban isn't either. Also: J.T. chat!
15:50- Dobbins chat is almost as fun as J.T. chat. I'm not convinced he's the next Zeke, but I won't deny the possibility.
24:50- Ask Us Anything. I wax poetic about the McFlurries in the Ohio Stadium press box.
41:05- Look, all I'm saying is that GRRM is like the anti-Tolkien. It's the whole freaking point!
