The PODCAST

CzabeCast Wednesday April 18, 2018

When I say nobody knows if Lamar Jackson will be a good NFL quarterback, it’s no exaggeration. NOBODY really knows. But the detailed scouting reports on him and others are truly fascinating. Was the cussing in Deadwood accurate? No. Was it necessary? Hell, f***ing yes! Charles Barkley yells at a rude co-worker. SPECIAL GUESTS: Bob and Brian in The Morning, 102.9 The Hog, Milwaukee.

CzabeCast Tuesday April 17, 2018

Is Josh Rosen “too smart” for NFL teams, or is that code word for an ugly sterotype. Either way, Rosen will be one of the great mysteries of the upcoming draft. Shouldn’t NFL teams involve their star QBs in critical decisions about the offense, at least? Can you franchise Aaron Rodgers in 2 years and get away with it? Beasts and surprises so far in MLB, Bucks-Celtics, and FTG! Special Guest: Drew Olsen, Big 920 in Milwaukee.

CzabeCast Monday April 16, 2018

Imagine a LeBron 1st round exit. Pack should go grab Dez. Period. Cal Ripken’s estate up for auction. James Harrison retires, and R. Lee Ermy dies.

Wheel of Fortune guy gets royally screwed. Will Andrew Luck ever be good again? Aldon Smith extreme DUI. Meek Mill 101. Eating crow on Shohei Otani. Japanese baseball vs. American. Tristan Thompson cheating scandal. Special Guest: The Notorious J-A-Y.

Well, It Was *Just* A Sublexation After All… No Biggie

Tony Finau’s dislocated ankle, turned -4 opening round is one of the great “golf injury” stories in a long time. But was it really that impressive? I’ve got everything you wanted to know about popping your ankle back into it’s socket, but were afraid to ask.

Chris Cooley is an artist, a slob, a genius, a goofball, and guy who is still obsessed with football now that he’s retired. I missed him, so I talked to him about his exhaustive scouting reports, Zoolander, and the “Fab 5” QB prospects in the NFL Draft.

The Masters Par-3 Remains A Perfect “10”

The Masters Par-3 contest lived in sporting obscurity for years, until the Green Jackets teamed up with ESPN to finally put it on TV. It’s an event unlike anything in sports, that bridges generations on the most impossibly beautiful stage in sports.

Donte DiVincenzo is known as “The Michael Jordan of Delaware” and also “The Big Ragu” for his Italian heritage. He’s also a kid who tweeted some dumb embarrassing stuff when he was 14. He’s also a Final Four MOP and NCAA Champion. All Hail “Bossa Nova” for a dominating title run.

Sorry Sister, The Crying Jordan Meme Is Undefeated!

It’s not Sister Jean’s fault that the modern sports media runs like a herd of spooked cattle toward the easiest, laziest, and click-baity-ist of stories. Still, I wish she had seen it coming, and maybe stepped aside for the players once the Final Four had arrived.

No Dunks Needed: Loyola Might Just Ramble All The Way To The Title

If A QB’s Win/Loss Record Was Really Such A Great “Stat” Then Drew Brees Would Be Retired By Now

I’m happy and excited to have Alex Smith as a Redskin. But the front office should tread lightly when bragging about his key “stat” of a winning record these last five years. Has anybody checked their records lately?
