The Drive with Big Al & DMac LIVE in studio. Duke makes like Tom Brady’s Super Bowl jersey and goes home, and DMac is all for the college-rules overtime in football. Battles colleges have to face regarding funding and the effect sports can have on a school’s budget. Al doesn’t care what he shoots, he just wants to see Tiger work his way around The Masters’. Also, DMac & AL are all but over the NCAA tournament as their top seeds in the 104.3 The Fan Bracket are knocked out, and Spike Lee makes a pitch for Colin Kaepernick as a viable NFL quarterback.
Tom Brady’s lost jersey from Super Bowl LI is found. The guys remember Kyle Shanahan’s backpack turning up missing at pre-game festivities and laugh about the Falcons’ lapse in the second half possibly having something to do with the backpack. Al reminds DMac there are no cameras in the NFL locker room, and DMac is floored at what an incredible story this has become. Al is shocked after Villanova is booted despite having the number one overall seed, and says he is not a fan of the upsets in the NCAA Tournament. Also, total revenue for big schools like Texas & Ohio State last year compared to smaller schools with lesser football programs.
DMac & Al are fans of the celebration, and debate when to carry out player suspensions in the NFL. Al talks OTA’s, and signing a big contract with Paul Brown and the Cincinnati Bengals. Tiger Woods makes an appearance on Good Morning America with Michael Strahan, and maybe his muscle memory is slipping with his lack of preparation. Al says we may be watching one of the greatest athletes of all-time in Vince Carter at age 40. DMac says Tiger can’t win an event, let alone a major, and as time passes the appreciation for what Tiger did will grow. Al doesn’t care what he shoots, he just wants to see Tiger work his way around The Masters’. Also, DMac & AL are all but over the NCAA tournament as their top seeds in the 104.3 The Fan Bracket are knocked out.
Something fishy going on with Kaepernick, Al says the 49ers might bring him back after all. Spike Lee posts about it, and Al remembers the injury guarantee in Kaepernick’s contract last season, and that he should have been a Bronco. DMac remembers the exact moment Denver moved away from Kaepernick, and says his stats are good enough, so maybe Spike Lee’s argument has credence. Game-worn jerseys, helmets & shoes, and the thought of someone taking Big Al’s National Championship helmet. Also, John Elway’s political endorsement with a Broncos logo attached and rooting for the Nuggets to snag the 8th-seed in the West.
