A bit of an announcement this week - Give 'Em Magazines, Brigham is on hiatus as we pivot towards a bigger and better idea that came as a result of that.
This week we caught up with the McKenzie twins, two legacy recurits from Pineview High School in St. George. We also give an update on the state of PPP and our thoughts on the new scoreboard and one certain defensive tackle recruit.
Jeff thinks Garrett would lose a fight with the Orange Blob Thing from Syracuse and Wichita State's mascot looks like Gordon Ramsey strung out on meth.
We preview the tournament, give bracket advice and and talk about a few football things.

We talk basketball, KenPom, Spring ball, Jakob Robinson and most importantly: Hirschi High Country Beef.
After a few clerical errors caused us to lose money on sales on our merchandise, we decided to spend a lot of this episode on current events of the day sharing our thoughts on how we, the fans, should be winning at life.

The season is over - let's pause and reflect on Zach Wilson's greatness as well as the need for Jeff to move his router so his 2 year old doesn't unplug it while we are recording.

While everything blew up after we recorded there’s likely to be an emergency episode tomorrow. Enjoy our talk of the CFP Cabal and a listener nugget hidden

CFP rankings are the talk of the week and we dive deep into that, touch on basketball and remind you all: don't make permanent decisions based on temporary circumstances.

We know what we're getting with that on Saturday so this week we are mostly revisiting scheduling, updating recruiting, discussing medical tourism and Charleston Chews and looking forward to the rest of the CFB season.
It's finally here - the Big One. We are talking almost exclusively about the game (other than Garrett's story about going on vacation to a place in the middle of a military invasion). Jeff shares some thoughts about the weather bug app, but it's a big, beefy, preview episode that you can let marinade for the next few days as the Cougars take on the Broncos.
Jam Packed Show: The McCluskies, King of Queens, Siaki Ika is in the portal, Ryan Smith bought the Jazz, our picks for the week, and a very in depth philosophical conversation about defensive strategies and how different programs do things and how we miss most of it because it's just not visible on broadcasts.
This episode is jam packed:
- Cougar Club is going to get better. We are doing your part, help us out!
- The staff is putting the onus on the OL to step it up
- Drop 8 is a myth. That isn't what we do every play.
- Wilson and the NFL
- Strength of Schedule
- Our picks and look at Texas State
We take a further step back from Saturday's "clunker" and preview the Coogs of Houston for Friday night's matchup. We do our usual picks and while Jeff laments the Braves, he shares his love of professional Wiffle Ball.
We are previewing the Roadrunners of UTSA, talking about if the hype is real, throwing out ideas for Cougar Club improvements, and what we expect to see on Saturday (and maybe Draft Day next year).
We are joined by @JaredUTSA from the "Alamodome Audible" to preview the Roadrunners and get some insight into the young program. #GiveEmHell
We want to give a special shout out to LazIndex.com for their totally accurate computer rankings, and Matt Cassell for going from career college backup to making 65 million dollars as an NFL QB. We break down the La Tech matchup and discuss the horrendous debate as well as what we think will happen with the schedule for the remainder of the season.
Jeff is back and Garrett is on the move - we talk the upcoming game against Troy, some quarantine kitchen, our hosting styles, share a few mission stories and the current roster situation.
Hellion of the week: https://twitter.com/KSL_AlexCabrero/status/1308619370596200448
Give 'Em Hell, Brigham merchandise: https://giveemhellbrigham.com/
Jeff is at "Deer Camp" because nobody drew (nor likely put in for) a tag this year - so we have Mitch Harper in his stead to discuss the Army game, La Tech schedule announcment, Jake Wahlin commitment and the big news coming out of the Big 10.

Heading into bye week we discuss the reason for no game this week, give a few roster updates, get way deep into the BIG 10 situation, share reviews, and give some picks which we will probably be wrong on.
Game week is finally here - and so is our Etsy store. https://www.etsy.com/shop/PinnaclePlays - use the promo code BEATNAVY for 10% off your order!
Before getting into our preview of the Navy game, we talk with Terrance Motley - former S&C coach at BYU, LSU, Louisiana, and Colorado. He is a former BYU football and rugby player and knows his stuff and shares a ton of knowledge with us. Then we get to the nitty gritty of what the depth chart looks like and what we expect Monday night.
This episode has a surprise. It's also our longest. We discuss fandom, G5 financials, scheduling and practice notes as we get ready for the upcoming season recapping the whirlwind of a week in CFB at large and for BYU especially. Follow us on Twitter @GiveEmHellPod
What a whirlwind of a week. But this might be our best episode yet. We cover everything that's happening in college football, where BYU stands in all of it and what the path forward looks like.
The Dixie State football team is our Hellion for saving somebody stuck on a cliff by their hair.
While hope is waning on the 2020 season, we get on the phone with Matt Brown (@MattBrownEP) of Extra Points to discuss where BYU is at and what the schedule looks like at present and what will happen with 2020. Our Hellion of the Week is calling the Miami Marlins out on their attempt to ruin baseball. Wings are the kitchen topic du jour.

After a quick trip to the taco stand, we sat down to record. We have 2 Hellions this week - the Woodall and Crockett families. We love hearing stories bout Cougar faithful bonding.
TeeSpring shut us down and we are looking into other options - we will get you more shirts. Lastly, Jeff interviewed Elia Migao who updates his recruiting and where things stand with the Cougars for him and his twin brother.
Lastly - please give Jeff some Glacier Park recommendations.
We are back with lots of rants and ramblings as we didn't start recording until about midnight Garrett's time. After discussing what will happen with CFB this season (as cases trend down, football trends up!), we award Hellion of the Week to Ford for not screwing up the Bronco the way Chevy did the Blazer. We also migrated from toaster ovens to cast iron and ice cream makers, but still landed on toaster ovens being important.
We share ideas for the Cougar Club and discuss the new director - and lastly are joined for an interview with Brett Ciancia of PickSixPreviews. Brett discusses his outlook for the year and why he has BYU ranked #39 out of 66 P5 programs.

Quarantine Kitchen: Jeff made BBQ Lasagna - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfIKne1_L6c
Garrett is feeling sheet pan meals: https://natashaskitchen.com/roasted-potatoes-and-kielbasa/
We dive into the financial state of college football and come to terms with the fact that the Ivy League cancelling means other conferences will follow, and that if the Big 10 reports are true of moving to a conference only slate, BYU's schedule will look rather 1940ish. We close out our defensive preview and want to leave with you a deal:

We recorded on Canada Day and wish the less 1% of our listeners that live in British Columbia a happy holiday. Garrett also goes on a rant on toaster ovens being greatly under appreciated.
Our Hellion of The Week is Brynn Campbell - who because of dance getting canceled during quarantine decided to play in a girls tackle football league - and led her team to the championship.
Quarantine Kitchen - Jeff talks about his green chili mac and cheese - there's enough dairy in it to empty the Cache Valley reserves.
Eventually we make it to the football portion of the show and discuss the defensive staff and scheme and what we expect going forward in 2020. Next week we will jump into position previews.
Check out our "ZOOBIE" shirt and start owning the identity as one of us: https://teespring.com/the-zoobie?pid=2&cid=569
,After a lively discussion on sunflower seeds, we finish our offensive preview and get fired up in a conversation about Isaiah Herron's impact at BYU, his decision to pursue finishing his career at an HBCU and his decision to return to BYU and the impact he can have in Provo. We need more Isaiah Herrons in the world. If you were not aware of HBCUs, their goals, and how scholarships work at the FCS level, this episode will be of interest to you.

And lastly, Ella Pope is our Hellion of the Week. Godspeed in Jacksonville, sister.
We're back discussing a couple recruiting tidbits, basketball transfer news, and starting our offensive preview (we only made it through the coaches and QBs - the rest will come next week).
Jeff pontificated about his love of cheese pizza (he's probably going to start calling it pie) and Garrett shares an Asian dish that will melt your face off (reduce the chili garlic sauce if you don't want it that hot - we kept it in the fridge and made noodles fresh for leftovers): https://www.plantoeat.com/recipes/22130656/

This week we talk about Caleb Lohner, other basketball roster tidbits, and the Weston Jones commit. We also discussed Ethan Atagi's transfer to Weber, and wish him the best of luck (#WeberState2xGreat3x)
Our Hellions of the Week are the Rexburg Police Department. We have zero non-vulgar things to say about Chad Daybell and Lori Vallow and are grateful that they can rot in a cell for the rest of their lives.
Jeff's tidbit: don't wrap your ribs. It's not worth the effort and they just steam. Pull them at 195 and mop them as you wish.

We talk attendance, long term results of COVID on college sports, update on Jaxon Dart and Raider Damuni and discuss Athlon's preview of the Cougars.
Lesson learned: We need a shorter agenda so we don't have a 54 minute show!
Please send us your nominees for "Hellion of the Week" - somebody in Cougar Nation that is giving life hell. We are having merch made that we will send to them. We want good news.
This week we are talking APR scores, impact of new recruiting coordinators Jasen Ah You and Jack Damuni, committable offers, financials of college sports and scholarship management, the new VP of advancement over the AD, and an update on Mac McClung.
