The Drive with Big Al & Cecil LIVE in studio. Upsets, effort, and emotions are remembered on day one of the NCAA Tournament. Mike Klis joins the show to talk about Joe Mixon visiting Denver this week, and his incident that was caught on video years ago. Klis says Joe Ellis sat down with Mixon, who knows what he did & is owning his actions. LaPhonso Ellis joins the show to talk about his Fighting Irish and what happened to his gorgeous hair. Mis-match situations and isolation involving effective scorers are highlighted, and LaPhonso tells the guys how to expose Notre Dame’s perimeter weaknesses.
Big Al goes chalk in the first round, and considers PPG, overall record, and FT percentage to be the most consistent factors to consider when filling out your bracket for the NCAA Tournament. Al tells Cecil why he has UCLA going a long way, and why Calipari is the equivalent of Saban. Cecil is excited about the action in the NCAA tournament, and Big Al is all about the effort. Cecil says Leonard Fournette is not quite Bo Jackson, but he can see why Al thinks Fournette is intriguing. Joe Mixon is in the Mile High City, and the guys weigh the risk of his off-field issues against his value in the draft.
Raiders add a weapon in Jared Cook. Big Al wonders why the Packers lost confidence in Cook, but still thinks it’s a good signing for the Raiders. Cecil says Cook is exactly what Oakland needed, and Carr will look to get him the ball often. Mike Klis joins the show to talk about Joe Mixon visiting Denver this week, and his incident that was caught on video. Klis says Joe Ellis sat down with Mixon, who knows what he did & is owning his actions. King Dunlap has been cleared, and Al asks Klis if he would be worth taking a look at. Klis says the Broncos still need a tackle, and the move would make sense. Also, Klis reminds the guys nothing will happen with Tony Romo as long as he’s a Cowboy. Listen to the interview HERE! LaPhonso Ellis joins the show to talk about his Fighting Irish and what happened to his gorgeous hair. Mis-match situations and isolation involving effective scorers are highlighted, and LaPhonso tells the guys how to expose Notre Dame’s perimeter weaknesses. Listen to the interview HERE! Also, the guys look in on the NCAA tournament, which you can catch on ESPN 1600.
Even the Nuggets getting swept is good, says Cecil. Al tells Cecil why Mudiay, Faried & Gallo have not been dealt, and why the Nuggets may be saving their stars from getting hurt. Cecil says there is still a difference in playing with the grown men in China and playing in the NBA. The guys debate how big the loss of Danny Trevathan was, and how close DWare was to winning Super Bowl 50 MVP. Also, Jacoby Brissett trends down, the Minnesota Vikings move on from Adrian Peterson and just how dangerous Christian McCaffrey can be.
