It’s Jake’s final segment of his final show of 2019….what were the memories from the year?

  • Early Break w/ Sip & Jake has lasted 3.5 years and we look forward to continuing for time to come…anything stick out from the year for Jake? Several memories on the show….including Sip wondering where the Purdue women were at
  • Picks:
    Ohio State/Clemson
    Notre Dame/Iowa State

Sip really needs a travel agent to coordinate his trips…he’s made a large mistake for his trip to Colorado this weekend / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

  • Sip is heading to Colorado after the show with the grandkids to take them to a Nuggets game tomorrow—the only problem is that the game is smack dab in the middle of the first College Football Playoff game (LSU/Oklahoma). What the heck was he thinking?
  • Should he try and stream the game on his phone in the stands?

Is there any argument that missing a bowl game is better than an embarrassing bowl game loss?

  • This sounds like a real millennial take and maybe a loser take, but here me out for a second: Traditional powerhouse Miami just went to the Independence Bowl and not only got beat by Louisiana Tech…but got SHUT OUT by Louisiana Tech, 14-0. You think you could sell some people in that fanbase that they’d have been better off staying at home?
  • This is what Jake was saying the other day. Bowl games matter, but they matter more to some teams than others. Of course Louisiana Tech had more to play for against Miami…they had all to gain and nothing to lose.

Nebrasketball hosts Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Sunday…any chance of another loss like the North Dakota game?

  • Boy, would that be disappointing. Texas A&M- Corpus Christi is 4-8 on the season, but did have only a 3-point loss to Texas A&M in mid-December. Since then, they’ve lost to Nicholls State and Central Arkansas
  • What will you enter the game with for expectations? A close game? A nice effort after a terrible loss? Or more of the same?

The College Football Playoff gets underway tomorrow…what are we expecting to happen?

  • LSU will play Oklahoma at 3pm in the Peach Bowl, followed by Ohio State/Clemson at 7pm in the Fiesta Bowl
  • Is LSU a lock to beat Oklahoma? Any chance that they get upset by the Sooners or not? What’s the key to that?
  • Any chance that Ohio State/Clemson is a letdown game and a blowout in favor of one team? Who would be more likely to get blown out in that scenario?

Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa look like franchise QBs in this draft…and Jake is sad because his Dolphins probably won’t get either

Burrow looked better in the game, but Tua still looked good in the second half. Yet, Jake is sad because his Dolphins won their 2nd straight game, and look like they won’t have a chance to get either QB. THAT’S. SO. DOLPHINS.
