Ron, Andy, John, and Dave are back for Football Picks Week 14 with guest picker Robert in Virginia.  We look at insane coaching chaos in College Football.  Mullen goes to Florida, Sumlin and Mora are axed from A&M and UCLA, Chip Kelly signs with UCLA, rumblings about Jimbo Fisher's dismissal at FSU, the catastrophe of Tennessee trying, and failing, to hire Greg Schiano, and many more coaching moves from the weekend.  Plus, Auburn takes down 'Bama and Wisconsin's continued push towards perfection and a CFP appearances.   From the NFL, we look at a brutal desperation move by the Giants and Coach Ben McAdoo to bench Eli Manning and end his 13 year consecutive starts streak.  How out of control is the Giants organization?  Later, we get into the playoff chases, the Steelers rollercoaster season, the free fall in Dallas and KC, and some new life for the Los Angeles Chargers.  Then it's football picks from the NFL and NCAA as the panel battles in a tight race for top dog.

2017-11-28-nbareport-injuries-hotsandnots.jpg

Chris and Dave return for this week's "NBA Report."  This week we cover a large series of NBA injuries including Blake Griffin's knee injury last night against the Lakers.  The Warriors fight injuries themselves as Steph Curry and Kevin Durant both miss games over the last two weeks.  The Grizzlies, facing time without PG Mike Conley, lose 8 in a row and fire David Fizdale.  Later, we cover the "Hots and Nots", teams that rebounded over the last two weeks like the Cavs, Heat, and Blazers to go with teams that faded like the Magic, Grizzlies, and Clippers.

Later we remember Steve "Snapper" Jones who died over the weekend, and was a big presence on the NBA on NBC broadcast booth with Bill Walton.   Dave and Chris share their thoughts on a beloved Portland Trailblazer.

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.
