In this week’s Bob Long Sports Radio Show, we talked about Penn State football, including a discussion about the recent fight at practice between Matt McGloin and Curtis Drake, and how this fight will affect the bowl game (Start-12:35). We continued our discussion by talking about Joe Paterno’s fractured pelvis and his lung cancer, which led to a discussion on the preliminary hearings of Sandusky, Curley, and Shultz (12:35-16:02). Then, we launched into an in-depth analysis of the head coaching search at Penn State, offering our thoughts on the potential candidates (16:02-21:54). We hit a quick story on Craig James running for Congress (21:54-23:36), discussed Penn State basketball (23:36-31:05), and analyzed a few of the past weekend’s NFL games, including the Broncos and Patriots, and the Eagles and Jets (31:05-43:40). Next, we interviewed Mark Concannon, a reporter for the Green Bay Packers, and discussed the loss this weekend and the upcoming playoff run (45:35-1:06:32). We analyzed the interview itself and extended our discussion to other aspects of the NFL, including, “Who is the best quarterback in the league?” (1:06:32-1:12:58). We asked the question, “Is Tim Tebow a Pro Bowler?” (1:12:58-1:18:53), analyzed a controversial story involving St. Joseph’s Basketball Head Coach Phil Martelli and his denial of a transfer request from former player Todd O’Brien (1:18:53-1:32:53), and then analyzed “The Holy War” between St. Joseph’s and Villanova (1:32:53-1:48:15). We closed the show with a discussion on concussions in the NHL and the impact it is having on the sport (1:49:00-Finish).
