Join Mark Malone Under Center on a Football Friday where we keep an eye on both Seattle and Carolina amidst riots that could threaten the Sunday game when the Vikings visit the Panthers. In Seattle, Mark applauds Doug Baldwin for providing solutions for what he perceives the problems are with minorities and the police. On the grid iron Mark is wondering which Aaron Rodgers we see at Lambeau Field. Today’s podcast guests include Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Listen to the Under Center podcast below:
Charlotte became the center of the political struggle this week, simultaneously putting Panthers players and coaches on center stage to answer for what was happening around them. Sports Illustrated NFL insider Jonathan Jones lives in Charlotte and joined Newy to describe the scene in the home of the defending NFC champs.
LSU quarterback Brandon Harris has been getting death threats from fans after the team’s slow start to the season. While disgusting, Bleacher Report’s NCAA insider Michael Felder tells Newy this has been going on far longer than you or I may believe.
USC just got finished losing to #1 Alabama and #7 Stanford and USC coach Clay Helton demoted his fifth-year senior QB Max Browne to second string. Pac-12 Network studio host Mike Yam joined Newy to answer whether this move is already a sign of things to come in the Helton era.
Hall of Famer Jerry West pulled off the coup of the offseason by signing free agent Kevin Durant, but what would’ve happened to HIS career if free agency was an option in the ’60s? Jerry told Newy he would’ve left Los Angeles in a heartbeat and played in the Big Apple.
He may not have won a Sprint Cup race yet, but Austin Dillon safely made this season’s Chase and has a legitimate shot to win this year’s crown if he can get himself into Victory Lane once or twice over the next couple months. But if that doesn’t work out, he’s always got his six fantasy football teams to keep him busy.
Wisconsin’s been one of the bright spots in college football this season after beating LSU in Week 1, but 247 Sports insider Brad Crawford tells Newy their schedule the next few weeks will no doubt put them in their place.
Chris Landry joins us every week, and thanks to the breaking news of Adrian Peterson going under the knife, we had plenty to talk about today. Listen to Chris’ take on if the Vikings still have life this season or if they’re dead in the water.
Michele Tafoya’s been to a ton of different stadiums to cover the NFL for NBC’s Sunday and Thursday Night Football. However, as she readily admits, she’s never made it to Cleveland. Oh, Browns fans, you sad sad folks.
Seth Everett is NBC Sports Radio’s MLB insider and used to work alongside Dodgers legend Vin Scully. He gives Newy some cool stories about the man who’ll call his last game later this month .. He’ll also rip apart the Mets and every other MLB executive who tells us the Tim Tebow experiment is anything more than a publicity stunt.
