John and Dan are joined by special guest Mark Ennis, to chat about Louisville's move to the ACC, their expectations for 2014 and of course, beer.
And just like that, the Eagles were bowl eligible.
At 6-3 with three games left to play, Boston College is heading to postseason play for the second straight year. The dark ages of the Frank Spaziani era are well in our rear view mirrors, and the good times are rolling thanks to Steve Addazio, Ryan Day, Don Brown, and a bunch of players we weren't sure of when the season started in August.
On Saturday, Boston College looks to boost its postseason resume for potential bowl games when they take on the Louisville Cardinals. A first year entrant into the ACC, the basketball powerhouse is also a strong football program back under the direction of Bobby Petrino. The Cardinals are coming off a near miss against Florida State, and they head north for the programs' first meeting since 1998.
There's much we don't know about Louisville, but there's also a lot on the table to discuss. BC got beat up a little bit by Virginia Tech, so health could be an issue. Jon Hilliman and Tyler Murphy both got dinged up with the former departing the game early for good.
Potential bowl bids are now at stake. After sneaking into the Advocare V100 Bowl in Shreveport, LA last season with seven unlikely wins, BC is now on the verge of gaining a coveted "Tier Two" spot in a bowl such as the Pinstripe Bowl in New York City. Where else could the Eagles land?
So much is there to discuss and you can do it with Dan and AJ starting at 8:00 PM EST. Join us and call in at 646-200-0446 to talk Eagles football!
Geroge Durant a former walk-on which moved into a starting role at linebacker for the Louisville Cardinals. Seattle Seahawks Chris Maragos was a walk at Wisconsin and just won a Super Bowl. Amazing how a career can emerge. In 2013, he appeared in 12 games making 15 tackles and one tackle-for-loss. Versatility is one of the best attributes Durant brings to the table and he displayed that skill filling multiple roles for the Cardinals defense.
Matt Chatham and Brady Quinn continue their college football preview series of Power 5 conferences by headiing out to the ACC. Florida State has owned the conference in recent years, with most discussions centering on whether or not the strength of the conference was enough to keep FSU on top while staying undefeated.
The guys start by discussing this year's big Boston College vs Notre Dame game to be played November 21st at Fenway Park, and how cool games in historic venues can positiviely affect players and recruiting.
2015 figures to be a much more competitive affair at the top of the conference as question marks abound - specifically from a collection of close-but-not-quite-there programs like Clemson, Georgia Tech, Louisville, and Virginia Tech looking to climb to the top of the heap as Florida State reloads. The guys get into the keys to winning the conference, some sleeper schools to keep an eye on, and a discussion of the year ahead for some of the conference's best players.
The Washington Nationals took a 5-3 lead into the eighth St. Louis Cardinals but ended up losing an 8-5 decision to the St. Louis Cardinals on a walk-off home run by Brandon Moss in the ninth. 8-5 final in Busch Stadium. It's the Nats' ninth straight loss in St. Louis.
Pete Carroll will never dodge his play call, in the Super Bowl. However, there are more important things on Carroll's mind, as the 2015 season starts. The biggest concern is how will the Seahawks win the NFC West, for a third consecutive year. The St. Louis Rams have used additional picks, from the trade with Washington to stockpile young talented players. Often injured Sam Bradford is no longer the quarterback. The Rams traded for Nick Foles, who is coming off a broken collarbone. However, the addition of Todd Gurley could solidify the running game.
Carson Palmer is returning from a knee injury, in Arizona. He hopes that he can continue were he left off last season. The Cardinals defense willed them to a playoff berth, after a carousel of quarterbacks stood behind center. Still a major concern is running back. Andre Ellington is the starter, but can he handle the workload?
The fiasco with Jim Harbaugh is over, and the San Francisco 49ers have moved on. A suprise move to many, they named defensive line coach Jim Tomsula, head coach. Nothing went right for the 49ers one year ago. Chris Boreland looked to be a budding star but opted to retire, after one season. Defensively, they are going to have to try and find an indentiy. Offensively, long time running back Frank Gore has departed. This opens the door for Carlos Hyde to be the primary back. Will Tomsula work with Colin Kaepernick, or try to make him a pocket passer. There are many questions surrounding the 49ers?
Finally, Jimmy Graham is the answer inside the red zone, according to Seattle Seahawk fans. After back to back Super Bowl appearences, the Seahawks traded for one of the best tight ends, in the NFL. The biggest loss is the person whom they traded, Max Unger. Russell Wilson is a scrambling quarterback, but you still need to protect him.
The Redskins chose Kurt Cousins as the starter over RG3. Your thoughts and does this mean the end for RG3 in Washington?

Every week, two of the Best Fans in Baseball (TM) bring you all the news and analysis you need about the St. Louis Cardinals. This week, Daniel Shoptaw (C70 At The Bat) and Tara Wellman (Bird Tales) talk about a rejuvenated offense, a 7-3 West Coast swing (after starting 0-2!) and the state of the NL Central race. Plus it wouldn't be a show about the Cardinals without talking about injuries, though thankfully it's more about who may be returning than who is hurt. Finally, they'll look forward at a really big homestand coming up this week.
With the summer coming to an end, the sports world is heating up. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo go through all the recent asinine news like only they can.
Major League Baseball's playoff picture is still being put together. Will the Blue Jays hang on and claim the AL East? Division or not, it's looking like Toronto will reach the postseason for the first time since 1993, but exactly how good will they be come October? Can the Yankees continue winning minus legit pitching? Despite a wire to wire first place campaign, are the Royals possibly vulnerable to underachieve in comparison to 2014?
Do the Pirates need to avoid another Wild Card game appearance? Should the Nationals complete their collapse how much change could be on the horizon in DC?
Another college football season is here! Mike and George give their take on the preseason rankings. Who will reach expectations? Who will underachieve? Which teams could soar up the standings? What are the odds the Big 12 actually has one true champion to match the slogan (eye roll)? No matter what goes on, we are guaranteed entertaining games, upsets, and asinine playoff selection drama.
Robert Griffin III and the Redskins continue as the Kardashian's of the NFL.

The Arizona Cardinals lost their second straight preseason game, falling at home to the San Diego Chargers on a last second field goal 22-19. The result isn't all that important, as it is still just the preseason. But hosts Jess Root and Seth Cox find plenty to talk about, as they go over the positives from the game and the issue that came up.
They talk about the offensive line and how it went from being a great strength to a line with only established NFL starter to start the season. Will Earl Watford be able to overtake Bradley Sowell at RT in Bobby Massie's absence? What about the battle between Logan Thomas and Phillip Sims for QB3?
