2017-11-15-ramsfever-footballpicks-wk12.jpg

The panel re-joins Dave to recap another crazy weekend in College Football which saw Georgia, TCU, and Notre Dame go down.   After a dominant performance at home against the Irish, the U makes a bold return to national prominence, while Georgia comes up well short in Jordan Hare Stadium against Auburn.   In the NFL, more lopsided victories, while the Rams continue to surge to the top of the NFC West.  What are the keys to their success so far?   Then it's Week 12 of the Football Picks as we look at a light week in College, but a tremendous slate in the NFL.

2017-11-08-notredame-miami-preview-footballpicks-wk11.jpg

Dave in Queens joins the panel for the Week 11 football picks.  We count down to an enormous matchup between Notre Dame and Miami, both in the top ten for the first time since 1990.  The Panel recaps another wild weekend in college football where Penn State and Ohio State both lose outright, and USC and WSU rebound for the Pac 12.  Is Georgia the real thing after a less than dominant win over South Carolina?  Is Alabama on the right track after a relatively lackluster offensive effort against LSU?   Will Wisconsin continue to roll after their latest win?   From the NFL, we look at a very chippy Sunday afternoon with both A.J. Green and Mike Evans getting into big fights in their respective games.  The Rams embarrass the Giants on their home field, the Chiefs lose a good game to the Cowboys, and the Redskins shock the Seahawks in Seattle.   Later, the panel makes Week 11 picks from College and the Pros.

2017-10-10-mlb-lcs-preview.jpg

On a bonus MLB ALCS/NLCS preview podcast, Gerry and Dave look at a series of questionable decisions by managers during the Division Series round, including the much talked about Dusty Baker removal of Max Scherzer during Game 3 of the Nationals/Cubs DS.  We also look at a fairly convincing sweep by the Dodgers over the Diamondbacks, the Astros' advance to the ALCS, and the two series in progress including the suddenly reeling Indians hosting a Game 5 to the Yankees after blowing a 2-0 series lead.  What's next for the new renaissance of Yankees Baseball?
