Keith Arnold interview on SolidVerbal.com

by Travis Normand

If you love college football and you are not listening to the SolidVerbal.com podcast, you are missing out.

As readers of this blog know, I post random items and thoughts as I find them.  This means I post a lot of stuff that is anything but “timely.”  As it works out, I tend to find things later than most, which means I post about them later as well.  However, this isn’t always a bad thing.

For example, Ty and Dan (co-hosts of SolidVerbal.com) interviewed Keith Arnold of the NBCSports.com blog “Inside the Irish” on January 4, 2013.  Had I listened to the interview that very same day, I may not have found it as interesting as I did.  Instead, I listened to the interview today (Jan. 14), a week after the national title game.

Listening to the podcast a week later, allowed me to reflect on the comments made during the show under a different light, as I already knew the outcome of the national title game.

Normally, listening to an interview after the game wouldn’t produce any earth-shattering results, but in this case, I think it allowed me to see the genius in some of the comments Keith Arnold made.  Having said that, I am sure someone will now listen to the interview and think “what are you talking about? Arnold didn’t say anything special.”  

We don’t have to agree, but I did like the interview.  I always enjoy hearing educated and intelligent members of the media, or fans, or bloggers, etc. speak about college football.  While nothing about Arnold’s interview is life changing, it was a great interview and it offered a great perspective on Notre Dame (despite their loss to Alabama).

In fact, this is exactly why I am a huge supporter of the SolidVerbal.com.  They have a lot of great guests on the show and they always seem to have fairly interesting discussions.  Of course, don’t let the term “interesting” fool you — this isn’t NPR or 60 Minutes.  However, just because the show is a lot of fun, doesn’t mean the interviews aren’t informative.
