Fall is definitely in the air, and Postseason Fever was riding high in the Twin Cities this week.  Larry breaks it down from the Downtown Minneapolis studio, while Eric chimes in on location from the area suburbs.  The Twins ran into an old foe in their playoff return.  The Lynx defeated a new foe in their quest for another title.  The Vikings and Gophers try to find some success on the football field.  Plus, we have a bonanza when it comes to this week’s guests.  Tom Tuttle weighs in on the NFL.  We hear from some of the WNBA champs (Cheryl Reeve, Seimone Augustus, and Rebekkah Brunson).  And Don Renzulli of NFL On Location talks about how you can get in good at Super Bowl LII.

Twins Hit A Familiar Roadblock

Gophers Try To Rebound on the Road

Segment 3: The Gopher football team had a lot going for it as they opened their conference season last Saturday.  That all came into question after a head-scratching loss against Maryland.  Was this just a blip, or are the Gophers headed for a few more struggles?  The guys tackle that and look ahead to this week’s game at Purdue.
