The 'In the Bleachers 2008 Predictions' podcast is now available, featuring yours truly and a bunch of other well-known bloggers. It's long, 2.5 hours long. It's not as bad as four hours of Lou Holtz by a long-shot. I completely forget (or didn't want to remember) that he was Mark May's counterpart.I couldn't do four hours of Lou. I hope you didn't either or I'd fear for your safety/sanity/sense of style.
To combat Lou, you need Husker Haiku.
