Saquon Barkley Shut Down, The Big Ten Returns, Key Injuries

This week on The Kickoff: join host Harry Broadhurst, Erik Watkins, Jason Teasley and Randy Isbelle as they present their unique looks at the worlds of professional and college football, mixing a blend of statistical knowledge with a razor-sharp wit. This week, a major Saquon Barkley injury, the return of the Big Ten and more.

It’s a new season, but the same old show format you’ve come to know and love from The Kickoff. We open with “Studs and Duds,” highlighting the best and worst performances from the week. “So That Happened” brings you news stories to the table as the guys discuss ejections in two games, a slew of major injuries, the Big Ten returning earlier than scheduled and Randy getting Jason’s goat about Saquon Barkely’s struggles. “I’ve Got a Question” returns in an abbreviated format as well, until we get more information to work with. Finally, we once again “Pour One Out For the Homers” as the four favorite personal teams are discussed as well as some early season college ball.

The prediction segments remain intact as well. “I’m a Survivor” again has no Mama Watkins (she’s on her way, we promise) but does have our first bust-outs already from Week 1. “Are You Serious?” did something it’s not done in a long time, and made a little change doing it. Can the guys keep things going their way?

About The Kickoff

Ladies and gentlemen welcome to The Kickoff with Harry Broadhurst, Erik Watkins, Jayson Teasley and Randy Isbelle. This is not your traditional football show. Rather than breaking down every single game, we give you all the must-know information and the debate. While encouraging each other to speak what we think. Whether we are right, wrong, or just plain nuts.

Harry Broadhurst

Harry Broadhurst is a lifelong Buffalo Bills fan based out of Youngstown, Ohio. In addition, he also enjoys torturing himself by watching tons of Reality TV and listening to pop music. When he’s not watching the Bills on Sundays, you’ll find him rooting on his beloved Florida Gators on Saturdays as well.

Jayson Teasley

Jason Teasley, the man, the myth, the legend, in his own mind. Fantasy football junkie and the residential evil ginger that brings his insights and opinions whether warranted or not.

Erik Watkins

Erik started out with watching games and staying up late for Sunday and Monday night. It spread to college, and eventually just about every single sport in the book. By the time he graduated from UNF, all his friends and family thought Erik would be better off as a sportswriter. Perhaps a journalist, or a commentator than anything to do with math (boy were they right). So, after wandering around with a degree and looking for a job, he started a blog. The blog turned into some freelance work. After that, work led him right here talking about the game that he loves.

Randy Isbelle

Randy is a New York American sports fan stuck in the Pacific Northwest. Randy is a former writer for a few sports websites, and he was also a co-founder of the Coast 2 Coast Sports Report podcast. He now splits his time between watching sports, playing video games and being a father.
