Lick The Plate Coming To The Mighty 1090

Published

on

Lick the Plate, a culinary and music feature created by host David Boylan is partnering with The Mighty 1090 in San Diego.

Lick the Plate launched in San Diego during 2011, now offered in Traverse City, MI, Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, the show will begin incorporating sports for its return to San Diego by way of 1090.

“I honestly think that an interest in food, music, and sports is inherent in everyone to varying degrees. Foodies, music heads, and sports fans are morphing and a prime example of that is the variety of food now found at most stadiums and the music that has been integrated into the sports experience during warm-ups, time-outs, and halftime shows,” host David Boylan said Lick the Plate partnering with its first sports station.

“And let’s face it, even foodies that don’t consider themselves sports fans can get caught up in the excitement of their hometown team on a hot streak, the energy of baseball season on opening day, or an MVP caliber player in their town.”

Lick the Plate is a two minute feature which will air twice each weekday on 1090, during the first commercial break in the 7pm and 10pm hours.  The show will also be offered on the station’s website as a podcast.  Boylan has interviewed hundreds of guests from the food, beverage and restaurant industry since the feature’s launch in 2011, now the host looks forward to bringing professional athletes and sports personalities into the mix.

“I’ve been a big fan of Lick the Plate and have followed it closely over the years. Bringing a sports element to the show makes sense on many levels and we are excited to add this innovative content to our programming mix,” said Mike Shepard, VP of Programming and Operations at 1090’s parent company, Broadcast Company of the Americas.

Lick the Plate will debut on The Mighty 1090 beginning January 7th, 2019.

SEC Commissioner Forces Lane Kiffin To Cancel Dan Patrick Show Appearance

“Kiffin, despite being a regular guest with Patrick, wasn’t singled out. The conference made all coaches unavailable for media interviews this past Friday.”

Two of the top football coaches in the SEC taking direct shots at one another and their respective programs doesn’t help the conference or the game of football itself.

SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey apparently saw how bad the optics of the situation had become in the aftermath of the war of words between Alabama’s Nick Saban and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher.

Current Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin was due to appear on The Dan Patrick Show last week to chat about the situation. But Sankey apparently got Kiffin’s appearance canceled.

“Lane Kiffin was going to come on, but the commissioner of the SEC asked him not to comment on the Nick Saban, Jimbo Fisher situation,” Patrick said.

Kiffin, despite being a regular guest with Patrick, wasn’t singled out. The conference made all coaches unavailable for media interviews this past Friday.

Kiffin likely could’ve shed some light on what’s been happening in college football regarding name, image, and likeness payments, which Saban complained about. He also likely would have stirred the pot a little more between the feuding coaches, as Kiffin is known to do.

Doug Gottlieb, Nick Wright Feud Over College Sports NIL Issues

“Gottlieb caught wind of Wright’s rant and let his disapproval be known.”

Published

FOX Sports hosts Doug Gottlieb and Nick Wright definitely do not see eye-to-eye when it comes to money going to college athletes.

Despite both being employed by the same company, Gottlieb, who is never afraid to voice his opinion, fired back at Wright Friday regarding his take on college football’s NIL rule in the wake of Alabama head coach Nick Saban’s claiming Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher “brought” his recruits.

On Wright’s morning show, First Things First, the colorful broadcaster had a two minute rant about how he’s happy that schools are finding workarounds under the new NIL rules implemented by the NCAA to pay the players for their name, image and likeness. He said the universities have been taking advantage of college athletes, particularly black student athletes from rough backgrounds, for years and now that the tide has shifted, people are freaking out.

“The general sports public wants extra regulations and extra rules, is keeping their thumbs on college football and basketball players because their is an undeniable and always has been an incredibly uncomfortable racial context of the guys,” Wright said. “It’s mostly young black men from mostly really tough circumstances, generating billions of dollars. Who’s sharing in that?” Wright asked.

“An overwhelmingly white administration, an overwhelmingly white coaching staff, and an overwhelmingly white non-revenue sports. How do we pay for the tennis team and golf team, ah men’s football and basketball. What do they get? A scholarship. Be happy, we pulled you out the hood. Maybe you’ll have a better life if somehow you make the league or do something with your education.”

Gottlieb caught wind of Wright’s rant and let his disapproval be known. That resulted in a back and forth between the two sports personalities on Twitter.

Gottlieb continued, claiming the NIL rule puts exceedingly high expectations on the student-athletes before ever stepping on campus and are given something without having to “earn it.”

“The sad part is this push to pay SAs before they have even played a game, taken a class or assimilated to a school sets them up for failure in their post sports career. If you have been given before you earn, where is the motivation when you get to the real world?”

Wright then took a shot at Gottlieb, saying it always feels good that his take is the complete opposite of Gottlieb’s.

The dialogue continued with Gottlieb throwing shots at Wright, calling his take “embarrassing” and mentioning how he failed to point out the educational imbalance in society during his take. Wright asked Gottlieb what are some of the other “fake racism” takes that he claims are out in the media.

Gottlieb is no stranger to conflict with his FOX Sports colleagues. Troy Aikman called his opinion on Andrew Luck’s retirement “total bullshit” in a tweet from 2019. More recently, Gottlieb got into it with Speak for Yourself co-host Emmanuel Acho after Gottlieb ripped his brother Sam’s “Top 5 QB list” on First Take. He also called out Skip Bayless for name-calling.

Bob Cousy: ‘JJ Redick Is Untalented Using Me To Get Attention On ESPN’

“People with less talent will always try to make a name for themselves by criticizing other people and hopefully getting some attention and perhaps increasing their credibility,” Cousy said.

Celtics legend Bob Cousy was not too happy with J.J. Redick dissing his game and credibility as an all-time great player.

During an appearance on First Take, Redick got into a fiery debate with Chris “Mad Dog” Russo about whether Chris Paul deserves to be mentioned among the best point guards in NBA history despite another disappointing exit from the playoffs. Russo claimed that Paul is “no Bob Cousy” which prompted Redick to retort, saying Cousy couldn’t even dribble with his left hand and called the players he played against, “plumbers” and “firemen.”

“Bob Cousy won championships when there were eight teams in the NBA and you had to win two playoff series,” Reddick said. “Let’s celebrate Bob Cousy in his era, but you can’t compare pre-1980 with the modern NBA.”

The 93-old Cousy made an appearance on SiriusXM Radio where he went scorched earth on Redick, basically calling the ESPN analyst “untalented” while listing some of the players that he went up against in his era.

“People with less talent will always try to make a name for themselves by criticizing other people and hopefully getting some attention and perhaps increasing their credibility,” Cousy said.

“So when you respond to something like this, you play into their hands. I won’t do that, but I will defend the firemen and the plumbers that he referenced. And I’ll just give you a few of the names of these firemen that I played with and against during those years. How about Bill Russell, the aforementioned, not too bad a player. Wilt Chamberlain, remember that guy? He wasn’t bad. I guess he must have fought fires as well. But in any event, Wilt Chamberlain.

“Still the best, in my judgment, small forward that ever played the game, a guy named Elgin Baylor. A couple of point guards that weren’t too shabby, my colleague who also had an award created [in his name], guy named Oscar Robertson, who was pound for pound the best player perhaps in the game.”

Chris Paul is a 12-time All-Star compared to Cousy’s 13 appearances.

One thing Paul and Bob Cousy do have in common is their aptitude for leadership. Cousy developed and started the NBA players union in 1954, being named its first president. Paul served in that same role from 2013-2021.

The two men also share similarities off the court. Cousy was a stanch anti-racist advocate during the civil rights era 50s and 60s, when it wasn’t all that popular to so. Paul has also spoke out on issues regarding race, working with commissioner Adam Silver to address some of the issues facing the black community.

Maybe the two have more in common than either Redick or Russo would like to admit.
