UCLA/ASU Preview; Kids Club Picks; Random Q’s (09-24-14)

September 24th, 2014 · Comments

This week:  "Coach" Andrew joins Dave to preview UCLA vs ASU.   Brett Hundley is back in action against a short-handed, but still great offensive Arizona State Sun Devils.  How will the Sun Devils respond in their first game without the hurting Taylor Kelly at QB?  Instead it's Mike Bercovici, who once battled Kelly for the backup QB spot.  Now, he has a chance to start and take command of the Pac 12 South.   Can UCLA take advantage of the situation and put together a big win to set the tone for the rest of the year?  We'll cover this and the other College Football action of the weekend.  PLUS, We resume our now-named "Kids Club Podcast Picks" for Week 4.  John in CT has the lead in the contest, and he will provide his latest picks with Say Hello to Ottis, Ron in NJ, and Andy in Seattle.  In Hour 2, our latest "Random Questions" with Kevin on the Cape.

Vikings Under Fire; Lets Go Mex; NFL; Podcast Picks; Random Q’s (09-17-14)

September 17th, 2014 · Comments

Let's Go Mex joins Dave to get into the state of the NFL during a tumultuous month.  Last week it was Ray Rice.  This week we cover Adrian Peterson's ongoing issues with child abuse of his children, the Vikings' response, and the NFL's response.  Was it too sudden for the Vikings to activate Adrian Peterson after keeping him out a week ago and with new child abuse allegations in effect?  Will the Vikes' move to start him even stand as sponsors decline their support of their team?   PLUS a look at the upcoming NFL matchups, as the game continues on the field.   Next, we have Week 3 of our Podcast Picks with a four way tie in the standings!  Will Ron, John, Andy, or Ottis break the tie with their NCAA and NFL picks?   An exciting week of picks ahead AND Kevin on the Cape returns for "Random Questions" in Hour 2.  We'll begin the second half of the cfcl.com 100 question survey and throw in our own thoughts about football, fall, music, and life.  Perhaps we'll get Junk-man's thoughts about who will do best in the Baseball Postseason.  A busy show for a wild week in sports.
