The 2021 Roosties

The 2021 Roosties

December 8, 2021

It's the—wait, is this for real??—THIRD Annual Roosties, celebrating the best, worst, most fun, and most memorable players, games, and moments from the 2021 season. You don't want to hear Matt and Carter do a whole Roost Podcast episode on boring traditional awards like Offensive and Defensive MVP (Matt's got all that and more covered on the site!); you want the Roosties! So settle in (for an efficient hour!) and listen to your hosts debate awards like Best Play, Most Head Scratching Moment, and Player You'll Miss the Most.

Louisiana Tech Review; Season Grades

Louisiana Tech Review; Season Grades

December 3, 2021

100% fitting that Rice's final outing of the season was a weird game in which the Owls did not end the game with the same QB they began it with—but this time they won! So Rice finishes the season 4–8, and Matt and Carter are here to break it down on the Roost Podcast. They talk through the Louisiana Tech game, then talk big picture season thoughts, including grading the 2021 team on offense, defense, and special teams. Spoiler alert: for the first team in the history of this podcast, the offense gets the best grade!

Eric Henry C-USA Round-Up, the Sequel

Eric Henry C-USA Round-Up, the Sequel

November 23, 2021

Listen, no one wants to talk about a loss to UTEP. Carter was so horrified he bailed on this week's pod altogether (jk he's with family and has bad internet access). So Matt called in friend of the pod Eric Henry from Underdog Dynasty, who's always ready to talk all things C-USA so that we don't have to dwell on another Rice loss. Will Eric still be our friend when we leave him for greener pastures in the AAC? We hope so!

WKU Review; 100th Episode!

WKU Review; 100th Episode!

November 16, 2021

It's the 100th episode of the Roost Podcast! Our deepest gratitude to our listeners to sticking with us this long. Matt and Carter are here to celebrate by uh . . . sighing their way through another loss and discussing the wisdom of a head coaching change. Unfortunately there's not something more fun to talk about—but at least you get to hear Carter rant! And that's what you're all here for, right?

. . . Right?

Charlotte Review

Charlotte Review

November 9, 2021

Well, for a second straight week, Rice lost in overtime by a score of 30ish to 24, so for a second straight week, the Roost Podcast is here to break down an overtime loss. What went well? What went wrong? Will this team every make any sense? Matt and Carter don't have all the answers, but they're here to talk you through it anyway. They always feel a little better after recording, so maybe you'll feel a little better after listening.

UNT Review; Rubbernecking at Zombie C-USA

UNT Review; Rubbernecking at Zombie C-USA

November 2, 2021

Rice Football remains bafflingly inconsistent in 2021, and Matt and Carter are back on this week's Roost Podcast to do the audio version of the shrug emoji right along with you. An extended Dungeons & Dragons metaphor may or may not occur. Plus, Rice's soon-to-be-former conference is reported to be adding some members, and the list is . . . well, it's something. All that and more!

Rice Stuns UAB

Did that just happen? Did Rice just upset a conference contender on the road as a 20+ point underdog with a third string QB and a bunch of defensive starters out . . . for the second year in a row? Y'all, they did! And Matt and Carter are here on this week's Roost Podcast to break it down for you. How did the Owls pull this off? Does it mean something positive going forward (PLEASE)? Does it foretell more clarity and consistency at the QB position (lol probably not)? All that and more!

Rice might have played a football game this weekend so we're here on the Roost Podcast to deal with that as quickly as possible in order to get to the real news: It looks like Rice is getting a new conference! A better conference, even! What a world! It's been a weekend of great and terrible things for Rice athletics, so Matt and Carter are here to take you through it all (mostly the good).

Bye Week C-USA Interlude with Eric Henry

Bye Week C-USA Interlude with Eric Henry

October 13, 2021

Rice Football was off this week, but the Roost Pod takes no breaks! (Except for Carter, who was also off this week.) So Matt hops on with friend of the pod Eric Henry of Underdog Dynasty, for another State of C-USA pod! Matt and Eric cover the conference from top to bottom, East to West, leaving no stone unturned. They ask the important questions, including the most important one of all: "Is . . . is UTEP actually good?"
