Give Me Liberty or Give Me...Cotton?

This week's show discusses the heartbreaking gut-punch loss to LSU. Does it really matter in the larger scheme of things? Will Mallett go pro? Johnny Fayetteville says no.

The picks contest comes down to the last weekend, with P Williams holding a slim 3 game lead. Differing picks with Tom Logan on 3 critical games, however, so the outcome is still in doubt.

Enjoy, and tune in for your bowl show in 2 weeks.

The Cival War - Pac-10 Style

Johnny Reb and Private Union have almost nothing on Oregon's Civil War - other than a nation split apart, brothers fighting brothers, states' rights, and the whole this is actually a war where people lose their lives and body parts. Tonight, Oregon State and Oregon battle in the annual Civil War game with a Rose Bowl berth at stake. Winner goes to Pasadena! Loser goes to San Diego, Las Vegas, or El Paso? Since the podcast will be going on during this game, the crew submitted their picks early. Our friend, Johnny Fayetteville, has even more riding on this game. His national sleeper pick, Oregon State, could be the first national sleeper team to secure a BCS berth. Though, Patrick Williams may argue that TCU did so when they finished their undefeated season last Saturday. However, as national picks commissioner, I decree that TCU has not secured that berth yet, as the final BCS standings have not been released. Anyway, enjoy Oregon's version of the Civil War at 8 p.m. CST on ESPN.

Les Miles-Bozo or Crazy Like a Fox

Short week this week, so here's this week's LSU show without further elaboration. Happy Thanksgiving!

Mangino on the Hot Seat at KU?

There is quite a ruckus brewing in Lawrence, Kansas, over Mark Mangino's alleged abuse of players and assistant coaches, and it may wind up costing him his job. This was supposed to be a big year for Kansas, but after a 5-0 start and Top 25 ranking, they have lost 5 in a row and still have Texas and Missouri on the schedule. Can't help but wonder if the Jayhawks were having a better year that this would be such an issue, but I digress. Jason Whitlock of the Kansas City Star relates this entire brouhaha to Mangino's weight. Not sure about that, but interesting theory. Waiting for his next one about how Mangino's weight messes up everyone's Direct TV and Dish Network broadcasts.

I don't really follow Kansas football, so I have no dog in the fight. However, reports are out now that Mangino would routinely threaten assistants' jobs in front of players, withhold food from walk-ons, including pre-game meals (I am not making this up, and have a pretty good idea where these meals wound up), and told a player if he didn't play better, he would "send him home to St. Louis to get shot and killed with the rest of his 'homies.'" Pretty poignant, since the guy's brother had recently been hospitalized after a drive-by shooting.

An asshole is still an asshole, no matter how plump or slender. However, to understand Whitlock's point, here is a video of a sideline conversation between Mangino and a player who had just gotten a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. Could you describe the ruckus, sir?

Razorpod Picks

"Welcome back to the blog," says Olga Kurylenko. After an absence of picks on the blog, it's time to return as the podcast crew enters the home stretch. Our fearless host, Patrick Williams, leads the picks contest by three games with three weeks remaing. His magic number is dwindling, and the rest of the crew, especially last place Jimmy G, needs to make their move now.

PW (42-24):
Stanford 49 Cal 31
Ohio State 21 Michigan 10
LSU 24 Ole Miss 14
Oregon 45 Arizona 15
Arkansas 38 Miss. State 18
Indiana 38 Purdue 37 (Old Oaken Bucket Game!)

TL (39-27):
Stanford over Cal
Ohio State over Michigan
Ole Miss over LSU
Oregon over Arizona
Arkansas over Miss. State
Northwestern over Wisconsin

JF (35-31):
Stanford 30 Cal 20
Ohio State 27 Michigan 9
Ole Miss 20 LSU 9
Oregon 31 Arizona 24
Arkansas 42 Miss. State 20
Michigan State 17 Penn State 16 (Land Grant Trophy!)

JG (33-33):
Cal 38 Stanford 37
Ohio State 31 Michigan 10
LSU 12 Ole Miss 10
Oregon 35 Arizona 28
Arkansas 35 Miss. State 17
North Carolina 20 Boston College 10

As for our national sleeper teams, the crew reversed the jinx this year, and three national sleeper teams still have realistic shots at BCS bowls.

PW - TCU (10-0, #4 BCS) Two wins over Wyoming and New Mexico will cement a BCS berth for the Horned Frogs, and with a little help, TCU could find its way into the BCS National Championship Game.

JF - Oregon State (7-3, #19 BCS) Oregon State is still alive in the Pac-10 race. Wins over Washington State and Oregon plus one Arizona loss puts the Beavers into the Rose Bowl.

TL - West Virginia (7-3, Not Ranked) West Virginia has had a solid season, but losses to South Florida and Cincinnati ended their hopes of a Big East title and BCS bowl bid. The Mountaineers still have a shot to knock of Pitt in the Backyard Brawl, and a 9-3 record could land them a spot in a New Year's Day bowl.

JG - Clemson (7-3, #23 BCS) After a slow start, Clemson is on the cusp of winning the ACC Atlantic Division. A win over Virginia or a Boston College loss to North Carolina sends the Tigers to the ACC Title Game. Beat Georgia Tech in that game, and a berth in the Orange Bowl is theirs. IPTAY!

Razorpod 11-17-09: Unhorsing Troy; Mississippi State Comes to Historic War Memorial

Despite Johnny Fayetteville's worst fears, the Troy game turned out to be nothing to worry about. Mallett had another big day, spreading the ball around so that 8 different players scored. Big day for the offense all around. Defense is who we though they were. Porous between the 20's, but stout in the red zone. Next up is Miss. State, coming off a brutal loss to Bama. We'll see whether they decide to let go of the rope at War Memorial Stadium this Saturday. Early kick has been kind to the Hogs this season, so let's keep it going. In the mailbag, we discuss a possible early entrance to the NFL draft for Mallett, and a listener fills us in on the military flyovers before games.

Razorpod 11-09-2009: Down Goes Carolina; Be Very Worried About Troy

Three-man booth this week with Tom Logan out on assignment. Johnny Fayetteville, Jimmy G, and Patrick Williams discuss the Razorbacks' 33-16 win over South Carolina, along with a game of "Quien es mas Impatient? Petrino or Spurrier?" Petrino wins in a landslide this week, as Twitchy Spurrier made an appearance in Fayetteville and his impatience really hurt the 'Cocks. Up next: Troy (formerly Troy State) the Sun Belt leader and a program known for knocking off the big boys. The crew thinks we better be ready to play this week. Bowl possibilities abound, and we'll see where we land in the pecking order.

Patrick Williams still ahead in the picks contest, but the Hawkeyes hurt (literally). Rest of the national games are about as expected, and JimmyG provides an on-site report from Wholesome Lincoln, NE. Patrick picks the game formerly known as the Sweet Sioux Tomahawk matchup, and much more.

Razorpod 11-03-09: Suck It Ron English; Does Spurrier know Arkansas is in the SEC?

Big win over Eastern Michigan last week, and the crew ridicules Ron English's post-game comments. Other than that, not much to complain about except whether Tyler Wilson is ready to step in for Mallett if necessary.

On to the Cocks. JimmyG speculates if Spurrier remembers Arkansas is an SEC team as he seems to have a vaguely puzzled/constipated look on his face whenever his team plays the Hogs. Patrick Williams again deems this week a MUST WIN, and for once everyone agrees with him.

National games are "meh" this week except for Alabama-LSU, and a crew member makes a surprise pick on that game. Sleepers are fun as usual, and Tom Logan utters more than monosyllables about the Big 10 for once. Enjoy.

Razorpod 10-28-09: Victims of an HDN Special; How do you spell Ypsilanti

Ahhh, the HDN Special. You know its coming, there's just not much you can do about it. In this weeks show, we discuss why Coach Nutt saves his best for the Razorbacks. Long discussion about how the season goes from here-the easier part of the schedule is coming up. Eastern Michigan next, and yes we know how to spell Ypsilanti.

Razorpod 10-21-09: Arkansas 20, Florida 16, Refs 7

This week's show gets the big issues out right away: exactly how much did the referees have to do with Florida's win against the Razorbacks? Johnny thinks a lot, Patrick thinks Florida would probably have won anyway; JimmyG says look at the game clock-Florida would have had a lot less time left if the penalties hadn't been called. Anyway, breaking news is that the officiating crew from the game has been suspended for a month. Not much help for the Hogs at this point, so Florida goes into the "moral victory" category.

Now on to Oxford and a meeting with JimmyG's favorite former Razorback coach. Johnny F and Patrick think this is a "must win" for the Hogs. Will this be a HDN special? Will Jevan Snead rise from the ashes of his Heisman campaign?

The usual gibberish on the picks-much love for the Hawkeyes this week, and the sleepers are not nearly as horrible as usual. Listen and enjoy.

Well, Thank Goodness That Got Straightened Out

The SEC came out today and admitted that the personal foul called on Malcolm Sheppard late in the Hogs' 23-20 loss to the Gators at the Swamp was "not supported by any evidence." This was the second time in as many weeks this particular crew was Monday morning quarterbacked by the SEC office for phantom flags. They flagged Georgia's A.J. Green last weekend for excessive celebration against LSU for, gee, I don't know . . . celebrating what could have been the winning touchdown? I mean, that showoff actually turned his head six inches to the right and looked at 90,000 Georgia fans. The nerve!!! Those yards gave LSU the ball nearly at midfield with less than a minute to play. At least they made them count. Both flags affected the outcome of their respective games. As to the myriad of other horrible calls, the SEC calls them "judgment calls" which they neither criticize or discuss.

Unless and until you pull games or suspend officiating crews, this is all hat and no cattle. The collective response from Athens and Fayetteville? THANK YOU, SIR! MAY I HAVE ANOTHER?!?!?

Razorpod 10-14-09: Auburn has skid marks (again); Florida looms

Well, the Hogs put together their most complete performance of the year against the Auburn Tigers last weekend. JimmyG, Patrick Williams, and Johnny Fayetteville discuss in this week's show.  Florida and Dr. Tebow looms, and while the crew is optimistic, realism sets in.

A bonus this week with JimmyG and Johnny opining about the atmosphere (or lack of one) at Hog games.  Break out the dream sequence as JimmyG goes back to the Barnhill Arena days, Jim Robken, and the "Go Hogs" Spellouts of his childhood.

Razorpod 10-06-09: Victory at JerryDome, Auburn Comes Calling

In this week's show, we discuss the Razorbacks' 47-19 win in the Southwest Classic over Texas A&M. Consensus is that it was a needed win, and could pay dividends for the future. Then we turn to Auburn, and the crew has some different thoughts on the key to the game. Is it the Hog offense vs. Auburn defense, or is it the Hog defense shutting down Chris Todd et al.? Or, depending on whether you ask Jimmy G, it might be special teams. Listen to find out.

Great slate of national games on the pick menu this week. "Shakeout Saturday" as dubbed by JimmyG is shaping up to be a ton of fun. Hogs on at 11:00 (not 11:30). Alabama-Ole Miss gets some significant discussion, as does Florida-LSU. Patrick Williams holds a slim one-game advantage, which will surely mean a debacle this week.

Razorpod 9-30-2009: Saban'd...and now Beyond JerryDome...

Ahh...the bitter taste of getting run out of the stadium on the road. We're trying to put the Alabama debacle behind us on this week's show. Up next, the Southwest Classic vs. A&M, a rival from the old timey-time days. The crew (sans JimmyG) talks about the upcoming game in the JerryDome, and really worries as we don't know what A&M is going to do vs. the Hog Defense.

Razorpod Picks: Week 5

Razorpod is missing Jimmy G this week, but the picks must soldier on:

JimmyG (13-11 overall): Tennessee 27 Auburn 17; Cal 21 USC 13; Georgia 33 LSU 28; Oklahoma 31 Miami 21; Arkansas 38 Texas A&M 27; Sleeper: Maryland 23 Clemson 20

Johnny Fayetteville (9-15 overall):  Auburn 32-21; Cal 31-20; LSU 17-14; Oklahoma 24-21; Arkansas 42-32; Sleeper:  Oregon St. (over AZ St.)

Patrick Williams (14-10 overall) :  Auburn 31-17; Cal 30-10; Georgia 45-42; Miami 38-31; Arkansas 45-21; Sleeper: Louisville (over Pitt)

Picks and College Gameday

Unfortunately, I am unable to participate in this week's Razorpod. However, the picks and some commentary are too important to be missed. The picks:

Tennessee 27 Auburn 17
Cal 21 USC 13
Georgia 33 LSU 28
Oklahoma 31 Miami 21
Arkansas 38 Texas A&M 27
Sleeper: Maryland 23 Clemson 20

Apparently, ESPN's College Gameday is going to Chestnut Hill for this week's Boston College/Florida State game. Huh? There is no tangible football reason for this decision. Both teams are unranked. Florida State is 2-2 with an impressive victory at BYU, a tough home loss to Miami, an uninspired comeback win over Jacksonville State, and a home loss to South Florida last week. BC is 3-1 with two wins coming against Northeastern and Kent State, a butt-kicking at the hands of Clemson, followed by last week's OT win over Wake Forest. Neither team has a superstar or Heisman contender. Neither team will sniff the BCS. What possible reason could there be for Gameday passing on OU/Miami, Cal/USC, LSU/Georgia, or Michigan/Michigan State?

Razorpod_09_22_09: Why Willy Didn't Change Schemes; Why Mallett Is The Real Deal

This week's Razorpod show asks a fundamental question: would you rather lose a shootout or a Houston Nutt-style defense/running game? The answer: A shootout, of course, as it is much more entertaining.

The crew spends a lot of time letting Willy Robinson have it for failing to switch schemes.  Truly, would Georgia have scored any faster or easier if we had blitzed every down?  Probably not.  Mallett is praised, yet some offensive shortcomings exist.  Should the Razorbacks have run more?  The crew thinks so.  Yes, Arkansas has a history of making stars out of journeyman players:  Exhibit 1-A:

The crew's pessimism abounds: Alabama is a unanimous pick.  The usual gibberish follows-pick contest gets wacky, Jimmy G posts a perfect record last week, and Patrick Williams' stay at the top is short lived.  Jimmy G actually picks a sleeper team that is not Wazzu, and more.  Enjoy.

Razorpod 9-16-09: Georgia Preview

In this week's show, the Razorpod crew previews the Georgia game.  Arkansas is a 2 point favorite, and the crew's picks reflect this as they split down the middle on the game.  The crew gets a bit testy with Patrick Williams about the order of the picks, and JimmyG welcomes Tracy from Tulsa back to the fold.  Johnny Fayetteville invokes the "explicit" tag at about the 1:00:00 mark, so beware.

Nods to JimmyG for the Houston sleeper pick last week, and for Johnny for the Rajun Cajuns over K-State. JimmyG also has a well-reasoned rant about Urban Meyer worth the listen. And: Guess where JimmyG ends up for his sleeper pick? Yep, you guessed it: The Palouse!

ITunes Links Fixed!

The ITunes link for Razorpod should be up and running again.  If you subscribe to the show through ITunes, you should now see the last 3 shows in your feed, and all future shows should come to you automatically.  If you don't see the last three shows in your ITunes podcast feed, just delete Razorpod and then resubscribe through the ITunes Music Store.

Of course, all shows will continue to be available directly from this blog and via 

We are recording the Georgia preview show tonight, so you should see it show up either late tonight or early tomorrow.  Drop us a line at if you have anything you want us to talk about.  Otherwise, it will be all Georgia and *cough* much discussion about someone's national picks from last week.*

*Hint: Someone=Patrick Williams 5-1 WOOOOOOOO!

Razorpod 9-9-2009: Willy Robinson's 'Stache Wants Its Still Photos, and Make It Snappy.

In today's show, we discuss the fantastic offensive performance against Missouri State. Mallett is the real deal; the defense and Willy Robinson's new Yosemite Sam 'stache have some work to do; and special teams are semi-special.

In other news, Logan is off to a fast start in the Pickem, Williams and Fayetteville are mediocre, and Jimmy G stumbles badly out of the starting gate. This week promises some movement with Williams out on a limb with UCLA and Michigan. The crew splits 2-2 on USC-OSU in the first really huge game of the year. Oh, and by the way, the sleeper games are laughable.

Technical Update Part 2

We're getting the Itunes thing fixed piece by piece. You can still use the solution listed 2 posts below to get our shows into your Itunes. However, this solution is even better:

1. Open Itunes.
2. Go to the menu: Advanced/Subscribe to Podcast
3. In the window that appears, type:

4. Click OK
5. Listen and enjoy.

The last thing we have to do is get the Itunes Music Store Link updated, and once that is done, we should be back to normal. Ill keep posting the embedded player for each show here, just to provide you multiple ways to access our fine program. Drop me a line with anything else of a technie nature that you can suggest.

Razorpod, Tuesday 9-1-2009

Razorpod goes in depth about Missouri State.  Well, not really, but more discussion on the game than strictly necessary.  Practice news and notes, and the lead pipe lock national picks.  The first sleeper games of the year get a big guffaw.  We end with the national sleeper teams, and shockingly, Michigan State is nowhere to be found.  Except derailing Penn State's inevitable championship run, that is. 

Johnny Fayetteville roundly booed for past performance in the pickem contest,  and Logan hits a full stop on the mailbag.  Enjoy.

Technical Update

Hello fans. As we discussed on last week's show, our podcast host for the last 4 years,, went out of business during the offseason (or merged with a pay service, which for our purposes is the same). We are in the process of finding a new podcast host, but we have some pretty stringent requirements: it must take uploads of files up to 100MB, and it must be free.

So far, I haven't been able to find a site meeting those qualification. We are currently using, and it works, but I am having trouble configuring the feed for itunes. Obviously, the best way is still a direct download or streaming directly from

For now, here is a workaround for everyone who wants Razorpod delivered to their itunes so that they can put it on an iphone or ipod (I'm looking at you, Friday Night Guy!)

1. Go to

2. Click on the "Share" button at the top.

3. Click on the "Dropcast" link in the menu

4. This will pull up a screen asking you to subscribe using itunes, click ok.

5. That's it! It should now show up on the podcast menu in your itunes and will be auto-updated every time we post a new show.

Drop us a line in the comments if you know of any free podcast hosting services that allow large file uploads.

Razorpod , Tuesday, 8_24_09

As you know, we are moving to a new hosting service here on Razorpod, and like all things technical, with change comes issues. We're trying something new-here is the embedded show from Tuesday. Itunes is still pointing to the old host, and we are working diligently to get that fixed. In the meantime, try this version to see if you like it.

New Razorpod Episode Posted!

Yes, its that time again. Believe it our not, Razorpod is back for a 5th season, better late than never. This season you get the same old crew: Patrick Williams, Tom Logan, Johnny Fayetteville, and Jimmy G are back and better than ever. Or not, depending our your point of view.

We discuss the preseason high expectations, concerns about the defense, and a whole new way of doing things up on the hill. Also, we have surprising agreement among the cast members about the way the East and the West are going to shake out this year.

Take a listen and drop us a line at
