Episode 12: Iowa Recap Intern Caddy & Dave recap what happened during the Fighting Illini&apos;s trip to Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
Episode 11: Snappin' Oars & Spittin' Hoops PJ Fleck and his boat get absolutely wrecked by Blake Hayes and the Illini barge.  The Illini are a competent football team, and Cad smells another upset in Iowa City. After the football talk, we ponder on life without Kofi and who will be stepping up as his replacement. Illinois basketball is back. Life is good.
Episode 10: Your Illinois Basketball Fix (Beat Charlotte Please) Caddy & Dave don&apos;t care how ugly it is, but you have to get a W against Charlotte this week. This entire episode is two guys just chatting about Illini hoops. We talk about who will be this team&apos;s third leading scorer, freshman expectations, our favorite conference matchups, and much more.
Episode 9: Punting at Purdue Deja vu, anybody? Bret Bielema ignored the analytics and punted on 4th & short once again. Caddy and Dave talk about went what wrong in West Lafayette, bright spots from the game, and their expectations moving forward.
Episode 8: Purdue Preview & Illini Hoops Talk Well, it only took until Week 4 of the college football season for us to start anticipating some great Illini hoops. This episode starts off with a Maryland recap (00:00-12:55) and slides into a short Purdue preview(12:55-24:34). The second half of episode is all Illinois basketball talk. We cover which non-conference game we anticipate will be the toughest, Andy Katz player rankings, and much more.
Episode 7: UTSA Preview & B1G Picks Trap game? No, but we shouldn&apos;t take UTSA lightly. Illinois will have their hands full against a well coached UTSA team. The guys give their predictions for Week 1, and we review the QB situation. After our Illinois predictions, we place our bets for every B1G football game this weekend.
Episode 6: Week 0 Recap Although we&apos;re all battling hangovers, the Illini Break Down guys are still riding high from the win over Nebraska. We give our thoughts on Art Sitkowski, Blake Hayes&apos; dominance, and how it feels to have a competent football team. In Bret We Trust.
Episode 5: Week 0 is a Win-Win Situation for the Illini College football is finally here. If you are looking for a preview of Week 0, I&apos;d recommend either of our past two episodes. The guys are expecting a win no matter what this week. If Illinois wins, it&apos;s a huge boost for the football program. If they lose, Scott Frost probably hangs around the B1G for a little while longer. That&apos;s a win-win scenario in our book. Seriously though, the guys are excited to get the beers flowing at Memorial Stadium and can&apos;t wait to see the Illini back in action.
Episode 4: Rob & Dave Talk Week 0 and Basketball Official Visitors Rob and Dave are both mildly confident that Illinois will beat Nebraska. After diving through some game predictions, we talk about Cam Corhen and Cam  Whitmore being on campus for official visits next weekend. Also, the guys get into a little bit of Bears talk, and Rob has a dark horse pick for the NFC West.
