Episode 105: FOOTBALL? Where Do We START Today?!

Lamar Jackson playing football

Let’s not start there…

It’s the latest No Filter Sports Podcast with Eli Zaret, Denny McLain, and Bob Page.

  • Not embarrassed ENOUGH yet, Spartan Nation? Bob unloads on his alma mater after a Detroit News expose on MSU football.
  • He, uh, is none too happy with MSU basketball’s humiliating display at Purdue either.
  • The boys recap a WILD Sunday in the NFL playoffs and get into a near screaming match about Saturday night’s game!
  • ESPN wants to steal Tony Romo, Eli and Russell Wilson, a Dearborn PIONEER, a former “student-athlete” speaks — or TRIES to!
  • SO many football stories and, oh, btw, there ALSO is the matter of a little football game being played Monday night.
  • Sir Charles himself to the rescue of John Beilein, though nobody could quite rescue John’s ex-team on Sunday.
  • The P.C. Posse riding herd over sports too. When do nicknames, logos and mascots NEED to be changed? And when NOT?
  • What was it like to actually go to a game at the legendary shrines of The Polo Grounds and Ebbets Field? ELI knows firsthand!
  • And what was it like to know a man who broke into MLB in 1909 — with the Brooklyn SUPERBAS?! DENNY has that answer!
  • Those stories, YOUR weekly mailbag and much more right here.

It’s the latest No Filter Sports Podcast with Eli Zaret, Denny McLain and Bob Page.

  • Now that nearly EVERYONE in Detroit is excited the FL’s are OBVIOUSLY going to the playoffs, Denny says WHAT?! 
  • Even more hostility than usual in the NFL: Rex vs Baker, Vontaze vs Goodell, AB vs EVERYBODY — but who WOULDN’T wanna choke OBJ?!
  • Denny claims he doesn’t see all the raw talent Michigan has? Ask Chris Ash, FIRED Sunday as Rutgers coach after that 52-0 route.
  • Was MSU exposed in a too-narrow win over Indiana? Bob says so — and that this Saturday night in Columbus might be UGLY.
  • Great! The Toothless Tigers have quickly righted their sunken ship! They’ve hired a LOT more analytics people!
  • Among other issues, what on earth are they going to do about woeful Jordan Zimmermann? That’s among LOTSA stuff in our mailbag.
  • The boys look towards the MLB playoffs now and aren’t happy about the set-up.
  • And two questions YOU want answered: Why does Lolich hate Denny so much? And what happened in Eli’s brief TV foray into NYC?
