Well, we made it folks. Over the last couple of weeks, we have been counting down the best moments of the 2019 Barstool College Football Show. From Dave not understanding Daylight Saving Time to a $20K donation check to insane bets, it was a wild ride for the crew.
But nothing - and I mean NOTHING - topped the legendary moment between Devlin and Brandon fucking Walker. A moment that will forever live in infamy. One could actually argue that it elevated Brandon to a new height. I mean Henry Golding knows who he is because of it for fuck's sake.
When you watch how the whole thing unfolded, it really is amazing that me, Dave nor Dan noticed everything unfolding. In our own worlds like you read about.
Thanks for riding along with us! The complete list is below if you want to relive them.
A sappy moment real quick: Dave hired me away from NBC Sports Boston for this show and I have never been prouder to be a part of something. We absolutely love this show. We had one hell of a year. And I can't fucking wait for 2020.
In Case You Missed It:
- #1 Brandon Walker vs. Devlin
- Moment #2: Dave doesn't understand Daylight Saving Time
In a brain busting moment, the gang tries to explain to the big brain of Dave Portnoy how "fall back" works. Epic.
- Moment #3: Dave and Brandon Have an Epic Shirt-Off
The "Is Baylor actually any good" argument came to a head in week 13 when Brandon and Dave decided to have a shirt-off that completely derailed the show with semantics.
- Moment #4: Barstool Makes a $20K donation to Thon
After Dean Marie Hardin wrongfully accused Barstool of being sexist (etc etc), Dave challenged her to a debate for charity. After hearing NOTHING from her, he still kept his end of the bargain.
- Moment #5: Big Ev Bets Ohio State -70
Dave and Big Ev make a bet whether Ohio State could beat Rutgers by 70... and Dave won't let Ev off easily.
- Moment #6: Dave Roasts All Business Pete
Pete fucked a live stream up (again) and Dave fired him (again). On the next week's show, I gave Dave an inch…. and he took a mile. And fired Pete (again).
- Moment #7: Big Cat Has A Passionate PSA About Dad Bods
For some reason the gang asked "do women actually like guys with dad bods?" and BOY did Dan put that debate to rest with an epic PSA.
- Moment #8: Bob Huggins Joins the Show and Throws Shade At Texas
Legendary WVU Head Basketball Coach Bob Huggins joins the show and talks a little shit about Texas (with the help of Dan).
- Moment #9: Camera Man Tom Distracts Dave And Dave Derails The show
Everybody knows that you can't distract Dave or the entire show gets thrown off. Thanks to Camera Man Tom, we got a true Barstool moment and the signature Big Cat laugh.
- Moment #10: The Gang Ruins Brandon Walker's
Life Only Solo Segment Every Week.
In 2019, we introduced Brandon fucking Walker to the desk. If you know anything about BFW, he LOVES himself some trivia. It made perfect sense that we would give our (amazing) audience the chance to interact with us every week. It also made perfect sense that we would ruin it every single week. Sorry, Brandon.
