Ever so close to the season of madness in the sports world, there’s still some madness making news. What can create extreme madness? Extreme hype. The hype machine that awarded us Tim Tebow, has now provided Manti Te’o. All obvious hoax jokes aside, what is the former Heisman candidates draft stock, after a miserable performance at the NFL Combine? Is too much being made out of a bad 40 yard dash? Manti may have hurt himself, but who opened some eyes? Tavon Austin. Tavon Austin. Tavon Austin. Setting their West Virginia Mountaineer bias aside (is that possible?), Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo wax poetic on the ceiling and impact an athletic freak like Tavon Austin can bring to an NFL team. Speaking of athletic freaks, what should be made of Tyrann Mathieu, taking his one year absence from football and his continued ass clownery into consideration?
Tom Brady restructured his contract. Your favorite sports genius’ will explain why the “he took less to win” crap is being overblown. And what this could realistically mean for the Patriots chances at another Super Bowl title with number 12?
It wouldn’t be a sports talk show without one of the marquee asinine soap opera franchises. Baseball is back and the MLB season is right around the corner. For the first time in a long while, Yankee fans may not be so thrilled. With other teams improving, can the Evil Empire remain a championship contender with yet another star player suffering an injury? Curtis Granderson has led New York in home runs and RBI over the past two seasons. How big of an issue is his absence (until approximately May)?
An age old HBS battle will close the program: NHL realignment. Expect Mike to explain reality to George in this segment. Hype meets truth, as the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
