Get ready for OUR MOST HATED HATE WEEK this weekend with Travis Miller of Hammer & Rails, probably the only blogger to nearly be run over by Donna Shalala at a baseball game. Because ▯_▯. We talk about that, and the state of Purdue football two years removed from Danny Hope.

OK, enough of this negative bullshit. Let's have some fun. It's Pitt Week, and so we talk Pitt with the internet's most iconic Pitt fan. We're talking, of course, about Iron Chef Spilly (@IAmSpilly). We talk about Pitt's running game, the effect of Dave Wannstedt on television, and white chocolate aioli. It's a treat, because everything Spilly makes is a treat.

And now, this week's main event: Iowa-Iowa State, with a preview by KnowDan (@WRNLKnowDan) from Wide Right & Natty Lite. It's the sensible, smart analysis you expect from Iowa State fans during Cy-Hawk Week. Beware of some serious Paul Rhoads discussion ahead.

And just like that, it's gone.

You might want to listen to this before we revisit the Penn State sanctions with ex-bloggers Chris Grovich and Kevin Powers: Our podcast from July 23, 2012, the night after the NCAA had dropped the hammer on the Nittany Lions. It was an open question of whether Penn State would soon become the next SMU, a smoldering crater where a proud football program once stood. As it turned out, through two smart coaching hires, some leadership from the team's upperclassmen, and a remarkable reversal of public opinion, none of that happened.

If you haven't frequented Over the Pylon, the best (and, as we learn, worst) blog about Ball State on this here information superhighway, you're missing out on one of the most bizarre, deranged, and brilliant communities of college football fans out there. Today, we invite a bit of that into BHGP: OTP contributor, photoshop amateur, and professional Jason Whitlock inciter Alan Rucker (@OverThePylon) is on the show to preview this weekend's Iowa-Ball State game in the only way we know how. Specifically, by talking about P.J. Fleck. Because P.J. Fleck is incredible.

More than five years ago, we recorded our first podcast, with The Gazette's Marc Morehouse (@marcmorehouse) as the guest. Since then, he's started his own podcast, Iowa's gone up and down and back up again, and Adam and I have moved approximately 47 times. But every August, we get back together with Mas Casa to prepare for the season.

As for the sound, here is what happened: My laptop started having a power issue last week, so I did what any red-blooded American would do. I bought a new one. Unfortunately, my mic didn't get properly calibrated for the first round of podcast calls, so it sounds like the questions are coming in from a submarine. Don't worry, for I am fine, and by the Penn State call we have improved from "Charlie Brown's dad" to something borderline comprehensible. Just listen to the answers, which are not mucked up by my stupidity, and make up your own question. What I'm saying is it's like Jeopardy.

Tonight, we start a two-part survey of the hinterlands that are commonly known as the Big Ten East. First up: Ramzy Nasrallah (@ramzy) of Eleven Warriors to discuss Ohio State in year three under Urban Meyer, typically not a banner year for Meyer teams. He's followed by Chris Vannini (@ChrisVannini) of Coaching Search and MSU 24/7 Sports site Spartan Tailgate, who informs us that Sparty might have to rely on its offense this year, thereby reminding us that Michigan State has an offense.
