It's time for some football, and Adam and Matt are happy to oblige with more talk of Xs and Os, and nothing about conference expansion or NCAA investigations. They preview the BYU defense, make bold predictions on the season, and finish by making predictions about the Washington State game. Other topics include: Matt spending too much money on Chris Johnson in a fantasy league draft; the proper punishment for not participating in the White Out; the game on the schedule that worries them the most; and why you should never use a public Google Hangout. BYU football is less than two days away. Prepare properly by listening here and follow us on Twitter @byu_riseshout.
We start previewing the season opener against Washington State with the help of WSU beat writer Christian Caple of The Spokesman-Review. He talks about the arrival of Mike Leach, the implementation of the Air Raid offense, and the leaky bucket defense. Matt then comes on to preview WRs, TEs and OL. Other podcast topics include: PED use at all levels of sport; why Dr Pepper is better than whatever Matt's drinking; and what Austin Collie's repeated concussions could mean for his NFL career. BYU football is less than 8 days away, and there's no better way to prepare than by listening to this podcast. Listen here and follow us on Twitter @byu_riseshout. Go Cougars!
Jay Drew returns to the podcast to talk about some of this week's football camp storylines. Do the Cougars have depth problem at RB or OL? Why is Riley Nelson ragging on himself? Jay answers. He also talks Demarcus Harrison and what his departure means for BYU Hoops. Matt joins the podcast to talk Stephen Strasburg and Olympic withdrawal. Adam and Matt actually talk about the Cougars, including previewing the RB and QB positions, as well how worried they are about Washington State. They finish with some hoops and play Cougar Nation's favorite little game, Answering Machine. You'll rise, you'll shout, you'll be wondering where an hour of your life went.

Greg Wrubell of KSL joins Adam for a record-breaking 9th appearance on the podcast. The topic du jour is BYU football fall camp. They discuss some of the major storylines, including Bronco's discipline and what can be done to prepare a QB for 2013 without jeopardizing 2012. Greg finishes his appearance (before triumphantly throwing down his mic) by expressing enthusiasm for BYU's awesome 2013 basketball recruiting class, recently ranked No. 6 by ESPN.com (ESPN Insider subscription required to see link). Matt comes on next to endlessly banter about the Olympics, why he thinks James Lark should be the 2012 QB if Riley Nelson goes down, and they answer an excellent slew of #Tweetbag questions. It's fun and peppy, and it's getting you ready for some football! Listen here, download us on iTunes, and follow us on Twitter @byu_riseshout.
Adam and Matt are together for the second week in a row! They start with almost 8 minutes of total nonsense, ranging from MLB to the ridiculousness of Olympic gymnastics and stupid rules. The BYU portion of this BYU podcast starts with answering your questions from the #Tweetbag, including Jabari Parker's decision, and what bowl game is now the tastiest. The discussion shifts to Bronco's NFL conundrum and whether it really matters if BYU puts players into the NFL draft. The grand finale is a discussion of Adam's season rankings and why Matt believes 1996 was possibly the greatest season in BYU football history.
