Show Notes:

College Football

Utah Utes

The Utes gave the Oregon State Beavers a competitive game last week but still couldn’t get over the hump.  How big a part did the inexperience of Travis Wilson play in the loss?  Would the Utes have won with John Hays?

This week Utah faces the struggling Cal Bears.  This will be Travis Wilson’s third start and his first at home.  What do the Utes need to do to get a much needed victory?

 

BYU Cougars

BYU gave Notre Dame everything they could handle last week but still came up short.  Can this be viewed as a moral victory?  Did Riley Nelson’s comments after the game show that he is not a strong leader?

After the Fighting Irish put up huge rushing numbers last week, the Cougars head back on the road to face a Georgia Tech team dominate on the ground.  Can the BYU defense bounce back and shut down the option?  Will Jamal Williams get more carries (and can they win if he doesn’t?)?

 

Utah State Aggies

Utah State is rolling through the WAC schedule.  Last week they put a beating on the New Mexico State Aggies and look to do the same on Saturday against UTSA (University of Texas San Antonio) in San Antonio.  Can the Aggies win out and finally become conference champions?

 

NBA

A scandal hit this week when Jeff Van Gundy inferred that the NBA blocked ESPN from hiring his brother, Stan Van Gundy as an analyst.  This raises some serious questions about the league’s integrity and, more importantly, the independence of ESPN’s NBA broadcasts.

After so many questions raised about the league’s legitimacy, do you have any doubts about whether the league is “on the level”?
