Wherever you turn, there’s something to find on the “Sports Dial”.  Eric and Larry are back in the Downtown Minneapolis studio to tear through all that meat on the sports bone.  The Timberwolves start their new campaign.  The Vikings get a leg (or a collarbone) up on the Packers.  The MLB is closing in on its annual World Series matchup.  The Gophers look to finally get out of their Big Ten funk.  Plus, there’s plenty more NFL to discuss when two current Vikings (Trae Waynes and Xavier Rhodes) and a former one (Adrian Peterson) join the program.

Wolves Can’t Get an Opening Win
Segment 1: The doors have opened to the 2017-2018 NBA season.  The guys take a couple of minutes to look into the Wolves’ opener in San Antonio.  Was is a good thing that they lost to a pedigree franchise, or is it bad that they lost to a depleted pedigree franchise?

 

Big Hearts and One Huge Shot
Segment 2: The guys get a little philanthropic during this segment of the show.  One local youth football team will get the chance to see a rather important game in February.  Then, was Anthony Barr’s hit on Aaron Rodgers clean or a cheap shot?

 

AP’s Successful Desert Debut
Segment 3: Adrian Peterson wasn’t lost in the desert last Sunday.  Our hosts dive into the former Viking’s big showing in his first game as an Arizona Cardinal.  After that, we get a brief preview of the Purple Showdown between Minnesota and Baltimore.

 

One Backup QB’s Chance & Another QB Gets Back Up
Segment 4: There’s been a lot of QB talk this week across the Upper Midwest.  Teddy Bridgewater isn’t ready to get back to regular season action, but he has returned to the practice field.  Can the Packers survive, and maybe thrive, with Brett Hundley under center?  And has the NFC North flipped due to the Rodgers’ injury?

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is on his way to the ground...

Anthony Barr takes Aaron Rodgers  down…and out…

 

NFL Sound Galore with Adrian Peterson, Trae Waynes, and Xavier Rhodes
Segment 5: It was another big Sunday across the NFL.  It was so big that we needed to get reactions from two locker rooms.  Eric tracked down Trae Waynes and Xavier Rhodes, while Larry got some time with the aforementioned new running back of the Cardinals, Adrian Peterson.

 

No Dodging L.A.; Gophers Try to Rebound
Segment 6: As of Thursday night, half of the World Series was set.  The fellas discuss the Dodgers getting back to the Fall Classic for the first time in 29 years.  Plus, the shine coming from TCF Bank Stadium has faded.  What can the Gopher football team do to get out of their three-game losing streak?

When things seem down in sports, you want to believe that hope can bring you out of a bad place.  Eric and Larry are hopeful that they can brings you the latest and greatest from the sports world.  Gopher football hopes to turn around their losing ways in the Big Ten.  The Timberwolves hope that the offseason hype can build into regular season success.  The Vikings hope that a Monday night win can bring momentum to a Border Battle Sunday.  And is there any hope for meaningful discussion on the NFL protests during the National Anthem?  This week’s guests are familiar with Purple Pride, as we hear from current Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon and former RB Chuck Foreman.

Gophers Digging a Big Ten Hole
Segment 1: The Gophers started so well on the football field.  But since the page turned to conference play…not so much.  Out hosts look at the team’s loss at Purdue and whether they can turn things around against Michigan State.

 

Are the Wolves Ready to Howl?
Segment 2: There’s a lot of buzz for basketball in the Twin Cities.  Off of the Lynx winning their fourth WNBA title, the Wolves are getting set to open a much-anticipated season.  The fellas use their crystal ball to discuss how the new-look roster will fare.  Plus, can anyone challenge Golden State for the title?

 

Vikings Continue Their NFC North Run
Segment 3: It was an ugly win, but it was an ugly road win in the division.  The guys talk about the Vikings’ Monday night victory in Chicago.  They also take a couple of minutes to preview Sunday’s rivalry contest with the Packers.  After that, how crushing was Tuesday’s USMNT loss to the future of American soccer?

 

More Purple Talk: Jerick McKinnon Talks Vikings with GDG
Segment 4: Eric and Larry turn back to the pigskin.  More specifically, they begin an extended focus on runnings backs.  They catch up with Vikings tailback Jerick McKinnon after his big night in Chicago.  Later, they shift focus to Arizona, the new home of former Purple star Adrian Peterson.

Even MORE Purple Talk: Legendary RB Chuck Foreman Stops By
Segment 5: The Vikings won the middle game of this NFC North stretch.  But it was the folks that weren’t playing at the end that have made the headlines lately.  Legendary running back Chuck Foreman reviews the team’s win in Chicago and previews their matchup against Green Bay.  Plus, how well are the guys replacing Sam Bradford and Dalvin Cook playing?

 

Protesting…and Protesting the Protesting
Segment 6: The debate over the National Anthem protests rages on, with the White House making another statement.  Our hosts look at the walkout from Vice President Mike Pence.  Where does that leave us as the protests, and backlash, continue?

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.

This has been a wild week in sports.  From controversy to title hopes, there’s a lot for Eric and Larry to tackle.  They do so from the Downtown Minneapolis studio.  The Twins are back in the postseason for the first time in seven years.  How did they do it after last year’s disastrous run?  There’s no way they can go the entire show without touching on the NFL player protests last weekend.  GDG’s Tom Tuttle offers his opinion on whether this is the right way to go.  The Vikings rebounded against Tampa Bay.  Will the momentum continue against Detroit?  The Lynx are in a battle to win their fourth WNBA championship.  Plus, former Gopher football player and athletic director Dr. McKinley Boston joins the program to speak on the 50th anniversary of the last Gopher football Big Ten champ and his road to becoming Dr. Boston.

NFL Protests Grab the Headlines

Segment 2: It’s the hot-button issue of the week.  The NFL player protests during the national anthem caught the interest of President Donald Trump, and then it blossomed.  Our hosts look into everything that went on last Sunday and Monday.  Did this also leak into which championship teams will be showing up at the White House?  And do the Vikings have something in Case Keenum?

Beyond the Field: Dr. Boston Looks Into Fifty Years of Change

More Headlines From the NFL

Segment 2: A quarter of the NFL sports a 2-0 record.  Which of those teams could miss the postseason?  Our hosts pontificate.  After that, Ezekiel Elliott has had his name in the news for negative off-field transgressions.  But what’s the on-field mistake that some are screaming about this week?

 

A Playoff Berth’s So Close for the Twins

Segment 3: The Twins are clawing their way to a potential postseason berth.  Can they keep hold of this opportunity?  Eric and Larry dive into what we should expect over the last handful of days in the regular season.  Plus, they begrudgingly look back at the team getting swept at the hands of the Yankees.

 

Randy Moss Gets His Honor

Segment 4: It might have happened a couple of weeks back, but it’s still great to hear Randy Moss’ speech as he was being inducted into the Vikings Ring of Honor.  We hear that speech from the opening Monday Night game of the NFL season.  The fellas also wonder if the football head coaching circle is starting younger than it used to.

 

No Other Rival: GDG Talks with Michelle Morgan About a New D-III Feat

Segment 5: A unique event takes place this Saturday in downtown Minneapolis.  The NCAA Division III football rivalry that is St. Thomas and St. John’s will take place on a grand stage.  UST associate athletic director Michelle Morgan joins the program to discuss this special renewal of the series that is taking place at Target Field.

Segment 6: The pigskin isn’t the only thing stay front and center.  The Twins hover around one of the AL Wild Card spots.  Eric and Larry try to break down an important series in Kansas City.  You would think this effort is good enough to keep Paul Molitor on the bench next season.  Is it?  Plus, we hear a little more on P.J.
