Lane Kiffin Gives Dan Patrick Gambling Advice

“Even though the exchange was carried out in a joking manner, the tweet of the clip, which the Dan Patrick Show posted on Wednesday night, has been deleted.”

Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin was a guest on The Dan Patrick Show Wednesday afternoon ahead of the Rebels matchup with #2 Alabama this weekend. Topics ranged from the serious to the lighthearted as the segment began with Patrick asking how Kiffin’s team is dealing with COVID and ended with the coach jokingly giving Patrick advice on how to bet on the big game.

“I think college football has a harder time dealing with it (COVID) than the NFL,” Kiffin said. “The NFL, the players, they are professionals. Our players have done a great job, but college kids are not professional adults. College kids go to parties or go out on the town. it’s very difficult. People say, ‘just have them social distance’. Honestly, hardly anyone is social distancing. There are a lot of people, even adults ,who act like it (COVID) is not even going on.”

The focus then shifts to football and Alabama and the mystique of Alabama head coach Nick Saban.

“What do you tell your kids about playing against him (Saban)?” Patrick asks.

“First of all, the coaches aren’t playing in the game,” Kiffin said. “I wish we were because that would make it easier for us. Nick can’t cover me.”

“I don’t know,” Patrick interrupts. “Coach was a former defensive back. He might could cover you.”

“I would worry about him if he tried,” Kiffin responded. “He’s pretty elderly by now… Seriously, he is a great coach and this is probably the best team he has ever had. There are no holes (on Alabama’s team).We are going to have to do everything right in order to just have a chance to win.”

Vegas also believes that Ole Miss will have a tough time pulling an upset, as the Rebels are 23.5 point home underdogs to the Crimson Tide.

“I thought it would be closer to 50,” Kiffin said. “The last few games have been like 63-13. That’s 50 points.”

Patrick adds that he plans to take Ole Miss and the points.

“Let’s go!” Kiffin said. “Just go ahead and take the money line straight up.”

Patrick laughs. “Coach, I can talk about this but I don’t think you can. If I win though, I will share the money with you.”

“I don’t think that’s legal either,” Kiffin laughs.

Even though the exchange was carried out in a joking manner, the tweet of the clip, which the Dan Patrick Show posted on Wednesday night, has been deleted.

Joy Taylor Says Aaron Rodgers Is More Likeable After Pardon My Take Appearance

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said.

On Monday, the Pardon My Take podcast dropped their latest episode which featured an interview with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Big Cat, one of the show’s co-hosts, is a Chicago Bears fan and has spent a lot of time not liking Rodgers publicly.

Colin Cowherd saw one of the many clips that the show shared and brought up how much he thought that Rodgers took ribbing from Big Cat and the podcast in stride. That’s when Joy Taylor offered that the interview could help Rodgers in the long run.

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said. “When you can show that you don’t take yourself that seriously, all of the animosity that people have towards you just kind of starts to wither away.”

She added that the disarming quality helps if people don’t perceive Rodgers as thinking he has all the answers.

“When people feel like they are projecting ‘I know more than you’ and ‘I’ve got it all figured out’ energy, people are like: ‘you got to be the smartest guy on the room all time time? You’re not.’

This is so likeable,” Taylor said. “It’s really funny.”

Cowherd agreed and even said he is probably going to go listen to it after the show.

“Aaron is genuinely laughing as they make fun of him and that is an incredibly endearing quality.”

Toucher and Rich: Dennis Eckersley’s Retirement a “Huge Loss”

“When Eckersley got in there (the booth),” Shertenlieb started, “he was great. It made all of them better when Dennis Eckersley was around. It’s going to be a huge loss.”



Dennis Eckersley

On Monday, Dennis Eckersley announced that he was going to retire from the Boston Red Sox television booth at the end of this season. The current NESN analyst is leaving after twenty years on the air with the team.

The news broke during Toucher and Rich on 98.5 the Sports Hub and it gave show co-host Rich Shertenlieb a chance to mention the news and praise the departing personality.

“When Eckersley got in there (the booth),” Shertenlieb started, “he was great. It made all of them better when Dennis Eckersley was around. It’s going to be a huge loss.”

The show spent the rest of the segment talking about what Eckersley offered that made him so unique. That’s when Matt McCarthy, fill-in for Fred Toucher, said that Eckersley was exactly what you wanted in an analyst.

“You want someone that’s going to give you an opinion,” McCarthy said. “Eck gave you an opinion. He’ll be missed.”

McCarthy also pointed out that this is the latest major shakeup that has happened to the television broadcast in recent years.

“There’s no doubt this is a blow,” McCarthy added. “This is a tremendous loss to that Red Sox broadcast to which has taken a lot of hits over the years with the loss of Jerry Remy, the decision to move on from Don Orsillo and now Dennis Eckersley retiring… they are going to have to find an entertainer in there.
