After so many visits, is this goodbye? Eric and Larry head to the suburbs, broadcasting (for what could be the last time) from Minnesota Vikings Headquarters in Eden Prairie.  They have plenty to discuss on the Purple’s recent run to near the top of the NFC.  And we get added insight from Twin Cities broadcaster Darren “Doogie” Wolfson.  Plus, no rest for the weary as the Timberwolves, the Wild, and Gopher men’s basketball continue on.  There’s also no bowl for Gopher football.

Vikes Keep Racking Up Wins

Segment 1: The Vikings are one of the best teams in the NFL.  The guys focus on Case Keenum’s stellar play during the Purple’s seven-game winning streak.  Can the team stay red hot as they make their first of two trips to face NFC South opponents (Atlanta this Sunday).

 

High Marks for Viking Offense

Segment 2: The Vikings are now in good shape to jockey for position in the NFC playoff pecking order.  How important would it be for them to get a first-round bye in the postseason?  Then, speaking of emerging presences on the offense, we hear more more about WR Adam Thielen and RB Latavius Murray.

 

Gophers Miss the Boat on a Bowl

Segment 3: While the Vikings are basically set up for the postseason, Gopher football won’t get an extra showcase game this year.  Eric and Larry discuss the whimpering end to P.J. Fleck’s first season in Minneapolis.  After that, which teams will end up filling out the College Football Playoff bracket?

 

Area Winter Sports Roll On

Segment 4: Football isn’t the only game taking up time on the Twin Cities’ sports calendar.  The fellas look into the good start for the Timberwolves, the great start for Gopher men’s basketball, and the sputtering start for the Wild.

 

When Media Collides: Darren “Doogie” Wolfson Talks Vikings

Segment 5: Who says competing media don’t get along with each other?  Twin Cities sports broadcaster Darren “Doogie” Wolfson joins the program to take a look at the Vikings season-to-date.  Is this team in the mix to get to Super Bowl LII?  Why is Case Keenum still the week-to-week starter?  What happened to turn the offensive line around?

 

A Lot O’ Dollars & Tiger Roars Back

Segment 6: There’s a lot to get to in the last portion of the show.  The NFL puts some major money towards some charitable causes.  How can we get paid for not working (a la some college football coaching buyouts)?  Tiger Woods returns to the golf course to compete in his own event.  Plus, Maya Moore get a big accolade from a national staple.
