What: EDSBS Live! online radio. It really should be called the Stewart Mandel edition, since we've crafted our questions around our guest, who happens to be Stewart Mandel. Like H-Town said: Ladies, get your towels, it's time for the intermission, 'cause Stew's here. They did not say that, but they should have.
But ostensibly, it's the generalist's show, with a national focus and a hint of BCS talk.
Where: At NowLive, where you can chat with each other and the show hosts throughout the broadcast in the online forum (the best part of the show, frankly). To phone in to the show, just call (310) 984-7600.
Who: Tonight's special guest is Stewart Mandel from CNNSI.com. We've promised to be gentle with him, even though he once drank 117 bottles of beer in a single car trip from Detroit to Cincinnati, according to Dusty Rhodes.
Four Questions: As always, our four questions for the night.
1. Who are the worst three coaches right now?
Mandel's big on the "worst coaches" ranking, and we're never short on positive feelings, so we'll bite. [NAME REDACTED]'s one, an overgrown recruiting coordinator who did his best work as a special teams coach. We wouldn't trade a good scabby patch on our head for Al Groh, the least exciting college football coach in the known universe. And most painfully, Sylvester Croom, hobbled as he may be in Starkville, is starting to cruise out of "rebuilding" and into flat-out badness.
2. Which offensive or defensive scheme do you most detest?
Oh, how we hate the soft zone in the third quarter with a lead.
3. Name your playoff/system preference---BRIEFLY
Briefly? Honestly, we're completely open to suggestions. We don't mean that in a dickhead MBA manager slipping you the finger from behind his palm pilot--we're seriously open, and have no idea anymore what an ideal scenario would look like.
4. Who's your new crush for the season?
Stewart named his, so we're on to ours, crude and esoteric though they might be. Audacia Ray in the brainy smut department, Serena Williams holding steady in the female athlete department, and in the wild card category, we'll introduce Sunday Morning Quarteback, a writer whose prose and pinpoint accuracy makes us nearly gay for him.
