2021 NFL Preview
- Let's start with the Rams...  Stafford comes in, Cam Akers injured... do have Darrell Henderson and Sony Michel at RB. Aaron Donald, and Jalen Ramsey leading the defense.  Thoughts on LA? - Let's stay in the NFC West... the division looks strong top-to-bottom...  which of the other 3 teams interests you the most? - The Aaron Rodgers drama / saga is over for now, and the core of the team which has made the last two NFC Championship games is back. What are your thoughts on the Packers as the year begins? - The NFC North outside of GB...  would you be starting Fields over Dalton in Chicago?  If Cousins doesn't have another COVID scare, can you picture the Vikings reaching the playoffs? - Dallas should have a quality offense, and Micah Parsons will improve their defense....  Washington will have a quality defense, and Fitzmagic will improve their offense.  In NY it's Year 3 for Daniel Jones.  Philly might be feisty at times, but looks likely to finish with 10 or more losses.  How you stack the division? - Tampa is coming off the Super Bowl win, and has everyone back. They enter the year as the presumptive favorite.  We will cover them plenty...  let's talk about the other 3 teams in the South, who do you like best? - Buffalo is coming off their AFC Championship Game appearance.   New England is significantly deeper after their Free Agent spending, return of players who opted out last year, and another draft. Of course the draft has added their QB Rookie Mac Jones.  Miami is entering Year 2 of Tua.  Does the division get 2 playoff teams? - The Titans reached the AFC Championship Game 2 years ago. They have Tannehill, Henry, AJ Brown, and Julio Jones. The Colts have a quality roster, and we will see if Wentz can stay healthy and perform in a system which should suit him well.  Who wins the AFC South? - KC with an improved Oline, and healthy Mahomes is a popular choice to represent the AFC for a 3rd consecutive year.  Let's talk about the rest of the West.... how do you handicap the race between the Chargers, Raiders, and Broncos?  Chargers a darkhorse SB team for some. - Pittsburgh won the AFC North last year, and will have a quality defense. Will see if their O-line allows them to run.  Despite some of the losses, the Ravens are deep on both sides of the ball.  The Browns have a lot of talent.  Fully expect the division gets 2 playoff teams. Will they get 3? - NFL Offensive ROY? - NFL MVP? - NFC Championship Game?   AFC Championship Game? - Super Bowl? - Week 1 Games of Note

NBA Talk With Raphielle Johnson & Jalon Dixon
NBA Talk With Raphielle Johnson & Jalon Dixon Topics Discussed: -  The Lakers are currently the 5th seed.  If LeBron and the Brow are healthy to begin the playoffs, do you still like them to win the title? - The Jazz have been consistent all year, balanced lineup... currently on top of most sites Power Rankings...  can the Jazz beat a healthy Lakers team 4x? - Among Western Conference teams, I feel the Clippers represent the best chance of taking down the Lakers with Kawhi, and George...  others are high on the Nuggets after Denver obtained Gordon, and some others like the Suns...  how do you rank that trio of teams? - Portland, Dallas, and Memphis are currently 6th, 7th...  if you were going to bet on one of those squads winning multiple playoff series, who would you favor? - The Brooklyn experiment has gone better than I anticipated, and they've added recent reinforcements. Will you be surprised if they don't win the East? Does it concern you that the Big 3 have played less than 10 games together? - Who's the bigger threat to the Nets... Milwaukee or the 76ers? - Last year's Eastern Conference Champ Miami has won 4 in a row. Oladipo has given them extra firepower. Would you be surprised if they won multiple series? - What's holding Boston back from being better? - The NBA will be utilizing a play in tournament this year.  Remind us how that is going to work, and give us your thoughts on that. - ESPN gave their listing of NBA players under 25 with the most future potential...  any selections / order you particularly disagreed with? - Who is your Coach of the Year?  - Thompson is back next year... and he's 90% plus of what he was....  what are the Warriors at that point? - Who is going to win MVP?

BSL Lacrosse Analyst Sam Kuhn
- As March ends, let's reset things with the Major conferences.  Duke is the overall #1 in Sam's National Top 20, and tied with North Carolina on top of of the ACC.  What does Sam like best about the 9-0 Blue Devils? - The other four ACC teams North Carolina, Syracuse, Notre Dame, and UVA were all in last week's Top 12...  with UNC coming in at #3 overall. Are the Tar Heels best poised to challenge Duke within the league? - The Big Ten has 6 teams, with MD leading the way.  What does Same like, and what does he question with the Terps? - Rutgers, Ohio State, Johns Hopkins, Penn State, Michigan makes up the remainder of the conference.  Last week Sam had Rutgers 5th overall, Ohio State 17th, and Hopkins 19th.  What's the story this year with Hopkins? - Denver cracks Sam's Top 5... they've been to the Final Four 5 times since 2011, with former Princeton coach Bill Tierney leading the Pioneers program since 2010.  Thoughts Denver this year? - Denver is in the Big East.  Fellow Big East member Georgetown cracks your Top 10.  The Hoyas made the Tournament in '18, and '19, after missing the tournament for a decade. What explains the recent rise with Kevin Warne's program? - The Loyola Greyhounds have dominated the Patriot League in recent years, but this year Sam has fellow Patriot League members Army and Lehigh ahead of them in his Top 20. What's the primary question with the Greyhounds going forward? - The UMBC Retrievers reached the NCAA Tournament in 2019, but have not won their conference (American East) since 2009. Ryan Moran's team is currently 4-1 overall, and 3-1 in league play. Sam has Albany, and Vermont in his Top 20. Chances of UMBC winning the American? - The Towson Tigers reached the tournament four times from 2013-19, but are 3-5 on the year, including 0-2 in the Colonial Athletic Association.  Delaware and UMass are leading the way in the CAA, and in Sam's Top 20. What's the status with the Tigers?

NBA Talk With BSL Analyst Raphielle Johnson

Difference Paul has made? - Clippers are 17-8... are they the primary challenger to the Lakers? - Denver and Dallas have started slow. Who is better positioned to rebound from their slow start? - Golden State is .500... They get Thompson back next year. If he's 90% of what he was, are they a legit contender once more?
