Maryland in the Big Ten: LGHL podcast w/ Testudo Times' Pete Volk

New, comments

Hangout in the Holy Land is reborn, where we discuss all things Maryland, Washington, D.C., and the N64

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

The LGHL podcast, Hangout in the Holy Land, has returned, after a long absence. After several episodes under our belt, we're planning on doing things a little differently, moving from a video podcast format to audio only, at BlogTalkRadio, and we're looking to bring on more guests to share their knowledge with you. We will continue to make tweaks over production value and formatting over the next few weeks, (including the ability to take live calls), and we still hope to make our Hangouts a regular part of the LGHL experience.

Our first episode under the new format is with Testudo Times co-manager (and frequent SBNation.com contributor) Pete Volk, to discuss all things Maryland. We hit on whether Maryland is a legitimate threat to beat Ohio State in football this year, who some of their Big Ten rivalry candidates are, why their relationship and breakup with the ACC was a tumultuous one,  and at the end, some discussion on DC's public transportation system, where to grab a drink in this town, and the N64. Because the N64 is awesome.

You can listen to the episode here, and we'll break down the topics below:
