A letter is all that is really needed to describe this episode. What comes after "T" and before "V?" You guessed it, "U." However, the "U" stands for much more than just another letter in the alphabet. Sports fans know this letter to mean arrogance, a college football dynasty, a filter for the NFL Draft, a place represented by legends, and so much more. In the wake of the Ohio State drama and several other notable "power house" programs forced to live under a cloud of scandal in recent years, damaging reports have surfaced claiming the University of Miami might actually be the ring leader in terms of NCAA violations. Mike and George will discuss their thoughts and the latest developments. If the accusations are true, what should be the punishment? The NCAA has handed down the death penalty before. Are Miami's transgressions worthy of the same fate SMU was once delivered? Will this spark a second version of "The U" ESPN 30 for 30 film? The Howitzer and Buzz-saw plan to unleash their furry on college football as we know it. To cast a bright light over this HBS, MLB has a new member in one of its most prestigious clubs. Jim Thome became the 8th man to surpass 600 career home runs. How should this accomplishment be viewed? Where is Thome's place in baseball history? The Buzz-saw loves to reflect on the ultimate stat games past and put each players numbers in the proper perspective. No need to wonder - for the best sports banter around, look no further than the Howitzer and Buzz-saw Show. Conquering sports radio, one day at a time....
