It's here!  It's finally here!  Our 2016 College Football Preview show has arrived!

  • Will it be another season of "win and reload" for Alabama?
  • How tight is the Big 10 race among the top 3 (Michigan, Michigan St and Ohio St)?
  • Can Baylor survive a tumultuous offseason and contend for the Big 12 title?
  • What team can least afford a loss in a stacked week 1 schedule?
Plus, we'll continue our tour of NFL teams as we get ready for the pros to kick off.  We make a stop in Dallas and talk with Drew Davison (Star Telegram) about the unexpected start of the Dak Prescott era in Dallas.

Episode 110 - Tiger Woods Interview - Did it create more questions than answers?

December 3, 2015

Is Steph Curry the biggest draw in the NBA right now? He reminds me of Gretzky and the Oilers in the 80s. When they came to town you had to be there. We'll also update the College Football coaching carousel with the hiring of Kirby Smart in Georgia and Mark Richt in Miami.

Plus, Tiger Woods came out of hiding and may have provided more questions than answers with his Time Magazine Q&A. So we'll turn to our golf expert Ryan Ballengee from Yahoo Sports and Golf News Net to help us make sense of it all.

And of course we'll break down the big four conference championships in college football.
