  • Yippee! Michigan State is now “bowl eligible” after fans deserted the sunken ship for Saturday’s win.
  • But better things should be ahead for MSU basketball as a battle with Duke looms.
  • And what a job by U-M in winning a holiday tourney in the Bahamas! Now it’s #1 Louisville — on the ROAD.
  • Denny rips the Tigers’ coaching staff collective new ones on a subject he knows a LOT about!
  • Did the hockey world overreact to Calgary’s firing of ex-Wings’ assistant Bill Peters?
  • The FL’s made fools of themselves again on Thanksgiving. Who is the QB now? Bob asks, “Why not Kaepernick?!”

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

  • Top NFL stars droppin’ like proverbial flies with no end in sight! Are YOU losing interest?

  • Eli says he now is hearing rumblings that Mark Dantonio may hang it up at the end of the season. 
  • Michigan was off Saturday but EASTERN Michigan was ON! What a win for coach Chris Creighton at Illinois! Can EMU keep him?
  • Chris Ilitch is HAPPY with the “progress” of the Toothless Tigers — despite 100+ losses and being the laughing stock of MLB?! 
  • Shades of Al Avila: looks like Gardy will be back next year — but why a contract extension NOW?
  • What? Dylan Larkin is NOT going to be the Wings’ captain? Eli thinks he understands the reason.
  • Those stories, more Denny Tales plus Eli under attack in our Mailbag (!) and much more — right here.
