Pat McAfee Breaks Down Texts About Andrew Luck Returning To Colts

“Ultimately, McAfee tweets that he doesn’t think Luck is returning to football.”

On Tuesday, 107.5 The Fan’s Jeff Rickard received a bombshell tweet from a questionable source about Andrew Luck potentially coming out of retirement. It was the ultimate “big if true” tweet despite the lack of credibility.

The tweet has since been deleted, but a person named Mike Austin sent Rickard screenshots of a text conversation that was allegedly between Luck’s wife and a friend, indicating the retired quarterback was considering a return to the Colts.  

One of Luck’s former Colts teammates is sports radio star Pat McAfee, who used his SiriusXM show to break down the Mike Austin tweet in detail on Wednesday. 

Outside of rightfully shaming whoever leaked the text if it is real, McAfee’s biggest issue was with the friend of Luck’s wife for needing clarification on who “Jim” is. But Jim is a common name, it wouldn’t be surprising if Luck has business interests with a person named Jim that is not the Colts owner.

If Luck and his wife lived in Minnesota and the text read “Andrew is having a meeting with Zygi” no follow up should be needed. It’s unlikely Luck would know someone who shares the same first name as Vikings owner Zygi Wilf.

Ultimately, McAfee tweets that he doesn’t think Luck is returning to football. Hopefully for Colts fans, his conclusion is just based on Mike Austin’s lack of Insider credibility and not McAfee asking his former teammate directly. NFL Insiders haven’t addressed the tweet, but Irsay did previously state Luck already knows the Colts would love to have him back.

Frank Frangie Prepared 20 Minutes of “Blowout Material” For Ohio State/Maryland Broadcast

“We almost went through it — almost rehearsed it — because I was convinced we were looking at 35-10 at the half. That’s just the way the Ohio State games go.”

1010XL afternoon host Frank Frangie had the opportunity to work as the play-by-play announcer for the Ohio State/Maryland game for Touchdown Radio Productions over the weekend, and discussed his preparation for the game on his show Monday.

Frangie serves as the radio voice of the Jacksonville Jaguars, but the franchise had its bye week last Sunday, and was available to work for Touchdown Radio.

“I had the Ohio State/Maryland game, and I was so worried about a blowout and K.C. Jones — the former center from Miami who did the game with me and was on a couple of those Broncos Super Bowl teams — we had about 20 minutes of blowout material prepared,” Frangie said. “So much so that we almost went through it — almost rehearsed it — because I was convinced we were looking at 35-10 at the half. That’s just the way the Ohio State games go.”

Luckily for Frangie, and listeners/viewers of the game, it was a back-and-forth affair that saw Ohio State secure a late touchdown to extend a lead to 43-30.

“It was a hell of a game,” Frangie concluded.

Charles Barkley recently joked on Inside The NBA that the network should remove the remaining games on its schedule featuring the Los Angeles Lakers. On WEEI‘s Merloni, Fauria, & Mego Monday, the crew wondered if the NBA actually had flex scheduling, and if not, they needed to implement it.

“Charles Barkley doesn’t wanna watch the Lakers anymore,” Lou Merloni said. “He wants them off primetime.”

“He’s got a point!,” Christian Fauria said. “It’s too late now. Can they flex NBA games?”

“No, they can’t flex NBA games,” Merloni rebutted.

“They need to,” Fauria joked. “Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, you’ve got the Lakers and whoever.”

“The NBA needs Lebron, but they should put in some more Sacramento Kings games,” Merloni joked, piggybacking off Barkley’s comments.
