Your guide to Thursday's Oddcast

Welcome to the idiot's guide to The Oddcast Featuring Gregg Doyel and Matt Jones Matt Jones and Gregg Doyel.

Our guest was Brooks, from the fabulous blog SportsByBrooks. Brooks is his first name. What's his last name?

1:15 mark: Brooks unveils his last name

1:35: Matt unveils the topic of "athlete's penises."

1:36: The show continues, but just barely.

7:40: Brooks: "Every day was opposite day. These guys were frauds, Gordon Gee the biggest."

10:50: Matt started his own fabulous blog because, in part, "I hated the local media, and the national media, because I thought they were self-righteous turds that needed to be put in check."

23:25: Brooks explains why "sports journalism doesn't exist."

26:58: Matt: "Who's the next school in college football where the hammer drops?"

27:05: Brooks tells us. And also explains why "Gene Smith is now officially done. He's fired."

37:20: Matt, do you have groupies?

37:21: Matt avoids the question. Repeatedly. Interesting.

40:00: My rant on LeBron, The Decision, celebrities kissing butt, Mike Bibby, IBM and Obama.

41:20: Matt says, "I sense animosity," leading to the final 10 minutes on my favorite topic.

The highlight?

42:30: "Deadspin should love me. It should be called DoyelSpin."

The lowlight?

44:10: "Get off the Internet if you don't understand I'm the guy you've been waiting for. I am Jesus Christ."

46:55: Matt: "You're in many ways not normal."

Return of the Oddcast

Welcome to today's guide to The Oddcast Featuring Gregg Doyel and Matt Jones Matt Jones and Gregg Doyel, where I walk you through the highlights of the podcast. Which rhymes with Oddcast. Get it? Sigh. Anyway ...

Here it is! Click here! After you read the handy-dandy how-to stuff.

Our guest was longtime Ohio sportswriter/talker Bruce Hooley. We'll get to him in a minute. First, we get to sex!

1:30 mark: Well, OK, not first. First we discuss the infamous Sports Illustrated story on Tressel, and whether it was disappointing.

1:31: It was.

4:00: Death by paper cuts.

5:50: Matt wants to know, why can't athletes sell their jerseys for tattoos?

5:51: It's a damn good question.

13:20: Gregg: "I don't mean to be a sex maniac, but ..."

13:52: Matt: "Brian The Intern, mark this down. Quote of the show. Gregg just said, 'The currency of sex is priceless.'"

13:59: Gregg: "And I'm bitter because I didn't have it."

14:25: Matt keeps picking on the tattoo shop. Called it "grimy." And "crappy." I'm starting to feel sorry for the poor little crappy tattoo shop.

16:50: Yeah, we brought it back to Bruce Pearl.

17:20: Matt: "How WERE those Ohio State players eligible for the Sugar Bowl?"

17:21: Another damn good question.

18:35: Bruce Hooley joins us. He brings no sex talk, but he does offer plenty of expertise on the Jim Tressel situation. What expertise, you may wonder? Hooley's so connected that he was minutes from breaking the "Tressel is resigning" story, but the Columbus Dispatch edged him at the wire. Happens. Well, not to me ...

Your guide to today's Oddcast

Welcome to today's guide to The Oddcast Featuring Gregg Doyel and Matt Jones Matt Jones and Gregg Doyel, where I walk you through the highlights of the podcast. Which rhymes with Oddcast. Get it? Sigh. Anyway ...

Thirty-five seconds: I explain why I picked this week's intro music. You'll say, "Makes sense."

1:25 mark: Possibly unrelated to the intro music, but we discuss the time I introduced myself to today's guest by telling him, "I love your wife." And then we discuss his wife some more. And give out her Twitter address.

2:00: We talk Gary Williams' retirement.

2:50: I unleash what could be a sexual innuendo. First of many, is my guess.

8:20: Is Maryland basketball a Top 20 job?

11:00: Gus Johnson discussion, where I embarrass myself greatly.

17:00: Rashard Mendenhall discussion, where he embarrassed himself greatly.

19:20: Mendenhall's deep thoughts on oral sex.

24:30: ESPN college football analyst Desmond Howard joins the show and tells us who are the worst fans in college football, which president embodies "buffoonery" and maybe even gets into Ohio State a little bit. The show crashes to a halt when I ask Howard if any school cheated, or tried to cheat, when this future Heisman was coming out of high school.

Listen here!

The Oddcast for Dummies, April 29

Welcome to today's guide to The Oddcast Featuring Gregg Doyel and Matt Jones Matt Jones and Gregg Doyel, where I walk you through the highlights of the podcast. Which rhymes with Oddcast. Get it? Sigh. Anyway ...

7:00 mark: I go for street cred by name-dropping Eazy-E, followed by Biggie and Tupac.

8:00 I name-drop Flavor Flav. Street cred gone.

8:20
I compare myself to Bill Simmons. More accurately, I compare Simmons to myself.

11:20 Jon Gruden is cute/angry. Sort of like a Pomeranian.

12:30 History will remember Roger Goodell's article in the Wall Street Journal as the NFL's Tea Party moment.

12:45 Tea Party history lesson. I'm talking about the 1770s, people.

17:00 The topic of Andy Dalton gets us thinking about the best redheaded athlete of all time.

17:20 We came up empty.

19:00 Jimmy Clausen, the emu.

27-29:45 Jake Locker sucks. Blaine Gabbert's not much better. Christian Ponder will be a bust too.

36:00 This conversation needs some Suzy Kolber.

39:45 Judge Susan Nelson, Lauren Hutton and Benjamin Button make for quite the threesome. In a sentence, people. A sentence.
