    SITM's 2014 NBA Draft Special w/ Moe Ager; 97.1's Dennis Fithian on Pistons & UM

    in Sports

    The @a2iwheels/www.a2iwheelandtire.com guestline presents Maurice (Moe) Ager and Dennis Fithian during Tuesday's 2014 NBA Draft Special on Sports in the Mitten with Adam Biggers and John Gustin. 


    One of Michigan State's all-time greats, Ager joins SITM to discuss the potential of Gary Harris and Adreian Payne, who should be MSU's first pair of first-rounders since Ager and Shannon Brown were in 2006. We'll also hit on Keith Appling and Michigan's trio of Nik Stauskas, Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary. 


    Fithian, a mainstay on Detroit's 97.1 The Ticket, hops on the line to talk about the Pistons' draft needs. Will Joe Dumars go big or fall short. Also Adam and Dennis share their love of college football and predict the Win-Loss for the 2014 Maize & Blue squad.

    Heck No! Joe D Must Go!

    in Sports

    I was fishing around on Yahoo recently (like I always do...sometimes for topics & news for this show), & I happened to come across a report that stated Joe Dumars was on his way out of the Pistons' front office. If this is true (& most Pistons fans probably hope so), then so be it. It may be time for both parties to move on. Things just haven't really been the same these past 5/6 years. Sounds like it's indeed time for a change. But here's the question: Should this happen? The man did some phenomenal things for the organization as a player & as the team president/executive for nearly 30 years. It's been a very disappointing season to say the least, & to be honest, it needs to be discussed...& we will talk about this & more on another installment of "The Rocket Sports Breakdown". Rocket Nation, get ready for a power trip. BANG!!

    Detroit Pistons Draft Lottery, SVG w/ 97.1's Dennis Fithian, Mark Cuban Comment

    in Sports

    LIVE 3-4 PM ET


    The www.a2iwheelandtire.com/@a2iwheels guestline presents 97.1's Dennis Fithian and TV 12's Ryan Slocum during Thursday's power-hour episode of Sports in the Mitten. (Due to technical reasons, Slocum wasn't able to join--we'll get him on in the future). 


    Fithian joins the program at 3:10 to discuss the latest rumblings regarding MoTown's former Bad Boys and his thoughts on the first-rounder who got away during the 2014 NBA Draft Lottery selection show. 


    We talk about Stan Van Gundy, Mark Cuban, LeBron James and hit on a few Michigan State- and Michigan-related topics. A transfer from Cleveland State has his eyes on the Spartans, while Michigan continues filling its football recruiting class with solid talent.

    The Knee Jerks: Detroit Sports with Eno and Big Al

    in Sports

    The Knee Jerks return after a short hiatus to talk all things Detroit sports, including:



    The Detroit Red Wings are knocked out of the 1st round of the NHL playoffs by the Boston Bruins, losing the series 4-1.
    Johan Franzen, scapregoat.
    Is Jimmy Howard the answer in goal for the Red Wings?
    Mike Babacock is the best coach in the NHL.
    Michigan's Mitch McGary declared for the NBA draft because he tested positive for pot and would have been suspended by the NCAA for a year. A YEAR FOR POT? Blow up the NCAA, please.
    Joe Dumars steps down as Detroit Pistons' GM.
    The Pistons franchise is a mess, lacking leadership when major roster decisions soon need to be made.
    The juxtaposition beween ESPN's 30 for 30 documentary of the Bad Boys Pistons and the current state of the team was eye-opening. The Bad Boys still have each other's back, while the current Pistons all but pointed their fingers at Josh Smith as the blame for many their problems.
    LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling is caught on tape making vile, racist comments.
    Ndamukong Suh does not participate in Detroit Lions' voluntary camp, fans and sports talk radio take offense over what really is much ado about nothing.


    There's all that and more, including "Whose Birthday Is It?" and our "Jerk of the Week!"


    Long-time Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters, Greg Eno (aka the man who knows a lot of things about a lot of things), and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks! Eno and Big Al's podcast is released every Monday on the Sports Geeks Radio Network!

    In light of the latest incidence the aftermath is where the biggest storie resides. Will Oklahoma State's losing streak continue? Will the selfishness of Smart cost the Cowboys a bid in the tournament?


    Wih the NFL Combine only two weeks away the initial concern may be the interviews but the real story comes  once he is selected and reports to training camp.
