This week on The Kickoff: join host Harry Broadhurst, Erik Watkins, Jason Teasley and Randy Isbelle as they present their unique looks at the worlds of professional and college football, mixing a blend of statistical knowledge with a razor-sharp wit. A brief dedication of the show (RIP Gale Sayers) leads us to open with Studs and Duds, highlighting the best and worst performances from the week.
So That Happened brings your news stories to the table as the guys discuss the injury bug hitting hard still. Monday Night Football being back on broadcast TV for the first time in fifteen years. Nebraska playing with fire and the schedule maker burning them and the team doctor for the Chargers screwing up so badly, it may have been criminal.
I’ve Got a Question makes its full debut for the year as the guys tackle the fans or no fans conundrum. If the Pac-12 has a chance of sniffing the College Football Playoff and whether or not the players union will step in if the injuries continue to pile up. Finally, we once again Pour One Out For the Homers as the panel discusses their favorite teams, both talking games played and previewing the games this weekend.
Prediction segments remain intact as well. I’m a Survivor did something for the first time last week. The hope is to repeat that while we still wait for Mama Watkins to debut (we made a sound effect and everything!). Are You Serious? wasn’t quite as fortunate as week one, but the boys are still hitting a combined 63% against the spread. A battle commenced calling a couple of the games and some feelings got hurt. Whose and what game? Tune in to find out…
All that and so much more when you check out the episode nineteen of season four for The Kickoff

About The Kickoff
Ladies and gentlemen welcome to The Kickoff with Harry Broadhurst, Erik Watkins, Jayson Teasley, and Randy Isbelle. This is not your traditional football show. Rather than breaking down every single game, we give you all the must-know information and the debate. While encouraging each other to speak what we think. Whether we are right, wrong, or just plain nuts.
Harry Broadhurst is a lifelong Buffalo Bills fan based out of Youngstown, Ohio. In addition, he also enjoys torturing himself by watching tons of Reality TV and listening to pop music. When he’s not watching the Bills on Sunday’s, you’ll find him rooting on his beloved Florida Gators on Saturdays as well.
Jason Teasley, the man, the myth, the legend, in his own mind. Fantasy football junkie and the residential evil ginger that brings his insights and opinions whether warranted or not.
Erik started out with watching games and staying up late for Sunday and Monday night. It spread to college, and eventually just about every single sport in the book. By the time he graduated from UNF, all his friends and family thought Erik would be better off as a sportswriter. Perhaps a journalist, or a commentator than anything to do with math (boy were they right). So, after wandering around with a degree and looking for a job, he started a blog. The blog turned into some freelance work. After that, work led him right here talking about the game that he loves.
Randy is a New York American sports fan stuck in the Pacific Northwest. He is a former writer for a few sports websites, and he was also a co-founder of the Coast 2 Coast Sports Report podcast. He now splits his time between watching sports, playing video games, and being a father.
