In this week’s Bob Long Sports Radio Show, we discussed the passing of Joe Paterno, and reflected on the life of the legendary coach (Start-23:20). Next, we discussed the journalistic ineptitude that took place on Saturday evening when Joe Paterno was reported dead while he was still alive, including the two specific entities that spread the rumor (23:20-39:05). Then, we expanded upon the rest of the weekend, including the services held on campus over the weekend and throughout the week (39:05-54:40). After the commercial break, we analyzed the NFL Conference Championship Weekend, including the New England Patriots win over the Baltimore Ravens (56:30-1:04:22), the playoff overtime rule in the NFL (1:04:22-1:07:45), and then continued with discussion on Billy Cundiff’s field goal miss (1:07:45-1:18:25). Then, we debated the top coaches in the NFL, the depth of quality coaches may surprise you (1:18:25-1:34:30). Next, we analyzed the New York Giants win over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game (1:34:30-1:47:43). Finally, we predicted the Super Bowl, Giants vs. Patriots (1:47:43-1:52:10), and closed the show with the Chip Kelly the the Bucs rumors and the Ryan Braun MVP acceptance news (1:52:10-Finish).
