Saban didn’t see the eclipse but sure is focused on FSU. Georgia Southern is the perfect opener for Auburn. Matty A loves 40 year old QB Tom Brady, Matty C loves former Raiders quarterback George Blanda who played at 48 which led to a Snake story.
We begin the show with a tribute to the legendary Broyles. Was the Jarrett Stidham QB announcement a surprise to anyone? Matty C’s thoughts on Bama/FSU are not received well by the former NFLer, Matty A. Florida suspends 7 for the opener with Michigan and congrats to the PGA Champion. Oh,…..and dirty laundry, literally.
This weeks guest on The A Side is Doug Lee. Doug is one of the founding members of the band Dogwood. He has a fascinating career starting with the very first song he ever wrote becoming a national success and recorded by Herb Albert. Dogwood was one of the first bands that had a country/rock sound to come out of the state of Alabama. The band was never signed to a major label and never released an album of their own. But now after many years of playing together they are finally releasing a new album for their many loyal fans simply titled “Dogwood”.
How does this topic surface in the middle of a conversation about SEC football? Listen up! Matty A and Matty C also talk in depth about the recent DUI arrest at Alabama. Is Nick Saban soft of discipline? Sean White’s role at Auburn is significant. The Chicago Cubs show much love for a fallen fan. Oh, yeah, Matty A once got a speeding ticket break in NYC.
Matty A and Matty C provide some sacking thoughts to the discovery that Steve Robertson is the Bulldog’s tattoo wearer that called Houston Nutt’s attorney to report the more than questionable phone calls. By-the-way, how did the NCAA and in house Ole Miss investigations miss this? Strange goings on in Oxford. Matty A researched Matt Luke and gives him a thumbs up. We finish the show with fish ‘n chips to Jordan Spieth, what a class act…..oh, Matt n Matt are now on radio too!
SEC Media Days provides great conversation and not just football. The Hyatt-Regency Hotel assisted the Hall of Fame rock band in getting some daytime sleep. Meanwhile Houston Nutt is suing Ole Miss. Hugh Freeze is quite cold to the timing. Gus Malzahn’s Tiger’s are an ORANGE hot topic. Heard of Courtney Love? Not the musician/actress, he is a Kentucky linebacker.
Matty C and Matty A talk SEC Media days from Hoover, AL. Jen Bielema is the hero, ask her husband. LSU’s Ed O praises Guice and UT is trying to break out under Butch Jones without QB Joshua Dobbs. Matty A is thinking about taking his Italian cooking show on the road to our listeners and is the Homerun Derby fun anymore? Auburn and Alabama are next as Matt ‘n Matt bring you two shows this week from SEC Media Days.
