Pound the Talk: Prop Bets and Big Ten-EPL comparisons

We've got on-field and off-field prop bets, with quite a few regarding offensive stats and attendance. Also, who is Northwestern's English Premier League equivalent? Why is Michigan definitely Manchester United? And who is Rutgers?

Henry Bushnell (@HenryBushnell) and Ben Goren (@BenG412) are joined by Zach Pereles (@zach_pereles) on this week's podcast for some Northwestern football prop bets:

Over/Under 55 catches for NU's leading receiver?
Over/Under 500 yards from scrimmage for Auston Anderson?
How many QBs will start at least one game?
Over/Under 2.5 games where the student section is more than half full?
Over/Under 0.5 Ryan Field sellouts?
Over/Under 0.5 fat guy touchdowns?
Over/Under 4.5 true freshmen who play?

Plus many more, including your props from Twitter...

We also make Tim Beckman jokes, and compare Big Ten teams to English Premier League clubs ahead of the new EPL season — Michigan is definitely Manchester United, and find out why Rutgers is Cardiff City. And Henry makes Pound The Talk history by forcing us to bleep out a word for the first time.

We've even got some new intro music!
