How do you come off of the “hustle-and-bustle” high of hosting a Super Bowl?  Well, the Twin Cities does have some other sports news going on.  Eric and Larry are back in the Downtown Minneapolis studio to bring you up-to-date on all of the headlines.  Of course, they break down everything that happened from the week of Super Bowl LII, from the game to the atmosphere to the security.  However, that’s not all that we’ll bring you this week.  The guys will touch on the Wild, Wolves, and Gopher men’s hoops.  Plus, USA Today baseball writer Bob Nightengale looks into the quiet offseason and ahead to Spring Training.

Segment 2: One of the biggest stories to come post-Super Bowl was the U-turn that Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels made regarding the Indianapolis head coaching job.  Did he make the right decision?  What about the backlash?  Our hosts dig into the messy scenario.  Then, do coordinators looking at the next position cost their current teams in the postseason?


The Eagles Fly to their First Lombardi Trophy

More to Winter Than Just Football

Where’s the Heat?  Bob Nightengale Talks MLB Moves and Spring Training
Segment 5: One thing to look forward to after football ends?  That would be the sounds and sights of Spring Training.  But why are there so many unsigned free agents as we close in on pitchers and catcher reporting?  USA Today‘s Bob Nightengale joins the program to discuss the lukewarm Hot Stove.  Plus, how has the MLB preseason turned a profit?


Gopher Hoops in Free Fall; NFL Legends Shine
