Under his leadership, the university, in partnership with the City of Menomonie, Xcel Energy, the Stout University Foundation, established the successful Stout Business and Technology Park. The university has earned distinction for its technology transfer efforts, headquartered in the on-campus Discovery Center.

Sean and I talk about the Colorado game and what the stats say. Obviously, we talk about the defense and how it has gotten worse over the last couple years. But is the secondary really to blame?

The Arizona Cardinals hit the road this weekend to take on the winless Detroit Lions in Detroit. While the numbers say the Lions are a terrible team, the talk coming from the Cardinals facility is they are not taking this game for granted. The skill players Detroit has are among the best and their defense is stout. They even almost got a win in Seattle on Monday, where it is seemingly impossible to win.
To preview the game and give Cardinals fans some insight about the Lions, Pride of Detroit's Jeremy Reisman joined host Jess Root on the show to talk about the team he covers -- the losses and the additions, the injuries and the horrid offensive line play which seems to be the root of all the team's struggles.
