How does a man go from atheist to cloistered monk? What makes an ordinary person a saint? Lori and Alice discuss Thomas Merton's best-selling biography of his spiritual journey, with reflections on suffering, human nature and lots more. If a book provides food for thought, then "Seven Storey Mountain" is a feast!
For the Week 5 recap podcast Jeremy is joined by Matthew K. to go over the latest action of Mountain West football. Well, we don't know much more than we did the week prior. Boise State gets outplayed by Air Force, but is it a one-game slip up or have the Broncos fallen of of its perch from being the feared team they have been accustomed to over the past decade.
Besides going through all of the games we attempt to make a decision on who is the best team in the league this year. This year the Mountain West has no clear frontrunners on a collision course to meet in the Mountain West title game, but now there are multiple teams in each division that can make the case to be the best team.
Jeremy and Chris go through the nine games of the third week of Mountain West football and discuss the highs and lows of the league so far. We both fell that Boise State is the best team in the league and that Nevada really has a chance to compete in the West.
We go deep into Fresno State to try to figure out what is going wrong with that team. Is it coaching, lack of talent, scheme or just maybe we are holding onto some shred of that Fresno State is still a good team and blame the difficult schedule.
We do get to Chuckie Keeton leaving the first half of the Wake Forest game by re-injuring the same knee that he tore his ACL last year. As of this time there is no update on the status of Keeton's knee.
Jeremy and Chris are back to breakdown a crazy Week 7 of Mountain West play which saw a pair of shocking upsets. The action got going Friday night with UNLV upsetting Fresno State in overtime and then San Diego State doing all they can to give the game up to New Mexico with four straight turnovers in the four quarter.
Utah State proved to once again being a very dominant team by beating Air Force and Nevada can still not play complete game in its loss to Colorado State. We both wonder if Boise State's loss to Air Force and Colorado State's loss to Boise State were more of a one-off game than the norm for these teams. Yet, nothing has been the norm for the Mountain West this year.
Jeremy and Chris are back to recap the first week of the Mountain West football season, and of course we know nothing. Not because we are dumb -- well some may think so -- but all of the offseason studying we did seemed to be for naught. The league went 1-5 in FBS games with Colorado State being the lone victor of that group as they beat rival Colorado.
The other half of the games were against FCS foes, and thus it is hard to take a ton out of that and make sense of it.
We discuss how Colorado State and Hawaii are looking to be actual contenders in each respective divison, and that Boise State is not going to go away quietly. Also, Fresno State really could be in a lot of hurt this year after its loss ot USC, and it doesn't help they face Utah and Nebraska in the next few weeks.
Oh, and there was this game we don't really want to mention that happened on Sunday night.
Sit back and enjoy the Week 1 Mountain West football recap.
Jeremy and Chris are back for the hour-plus shows as we are previewing the first week of the Mountain West football season. There are 12 games and the guys do gloss over a little bit of the FCS vs. Mountain West teams, but the big games like Ole Miss vs. Boise State, Tennessee vs. Utah State, UNLV vs. Arizona and other similar games get plenty of attention.
There is one super crazy upset pick by both of us, and while it won't come true it is quite possible that at the very worst this crazy pick should at least cover the monstrous spread.
Also, this year Chris and Jeremy will keep track of our picks and let everyone know how we do picking games this year, so sit back with your headphones and listen to this 80 minute show.
Jeremy and Chris are getting the entire Mountain West Connection staff on this podcast -- not at one time, that would be madness -- to give predictions on the Mountain West season. The staff will be asked these four questions:
Mountain West title game participants and winner:
Player of the year:
Coach of the year:
Pretty basic and with a staff of around 20 or so writers we don't want this show to drag on forever.

In THE SEVEN DEADLY VIRTUES, nationally renowned journalist, Senior Writer for the Weekly Standard and author Jonathan Last leads an all-star team of 18 conservative writers in a hilarious, insightful, and sanctimony-free remix of the Book of Virtues. THE SEVEN DEADLY VIRTUES sits down next to readers at the bar, buys them a drink, and an hour (or three) later, ushers them into the revival tent without them even realizing it. This collection of 18 original essays—by such writers as P.J. O’Rourke, Christopher Buckley, Jonah Goldberg, and Andrew Ferguson—aims at rediscovering the virtuous life in an era of momentous change.
As Jonathan Last argues—the problem today isn’t that we “no longer live in an age concerned with virtue. The problem is that we have organized ourselves around the wrong virtues.” He maintains that we’re now incorrectly structuring society around “seven modern virtues” (Freedom, Convenience, Progress, Equality, Authenticity, Health, and Nonjudmentalism) instead of the “seven cardinal virtues”.
