Matt and Adam begin by discussing Gotham and super hero movies. They reluctantly discuss the Nevada game and break down the reasons for the bad Cougar defense.

Matt and Adam cover lots of topics including projecting the rest of the season and deciding just how likely an undefeated season would be.
