The B/B Podcast - Scabs Struggle, Fighting Irish Impress and Gillispie Walks

By - Kris Fletcher & Tim Swift

In this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast, we discuss how replacement officials are leaving a black mark on the 2012 NFL season, how Brian Kelly is turning things around at Notre Dame, and the circumstances that led to Billy Gillispie stepping down as Texas Tech's head basketball coach!

- The Last Straw?: Replacement officials have struggled over the first three weeks of the season, but it all came to a head this past weekend, when several questionable calls were deciding factors in the outcome of games. Will all the mistakes finally be enough to get the regular officials back to work? Our answers may surprise you.

- Return to Relevance?: Notre Dame Football has been all but irrelevant for well over two decades, but now that coach Brian Kelly has the Irish off to a 4-0 start, are the winds of change blowing in South Bend? We'll tell you.

- End of the Line For Gillispie?: Billy Gillispie stepped down as head coach of the Red Raiders last week, citing health issues as the reason for his departure. Was that the real reason he resigned, or did he know his days as coach were numbered regardless? Hear our take.


We break down the biggest replacement referee blunders from Week 3, pick the best 1-2 team in the NFL, and share our thoughts on the passing of Steve Sabol.

All this and more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!
