No, the Washington State Cougars didn’t beat the Oregon Ducks on Saturday, which is a bummer, not because they should have beaten the Ducks, but because it felt like a win was plausibly within their grasp.

There were some things that weren’t great — mostly, the defense from about 0:18 left in the first half, onward — but there also were some incredibly encouraging signs from the offense.

Other topics discussed: Beer (duh), the apparent departure of Will Rodgers III, Hercules Mata’afa’s big Monday Night Football performance for the Minnesota Vikings, and the creeping up of the basketball season, which starts next week?!?

Also: It’s our 100th episode!! There’s nothing actually special about that, but it’s a round number, and our lizard brains really like round numbers, so hey — we’re going to celebrate a little. If you’ve been with us since the beginning, thanks for listening and encouraging us to keep going. We really enjoy making the show, as it gives us a great excuse to talk to each other every week in the midst of our busy lives. If you’ve ever said a nice thing about us either here or on Twitter or on an iTunes review, you have our sincere thanks. If you said something mean, well, screw you.

Fair warning: We do use naughty words from time. You’ll probably hate it. We don’t care.
