Episode 314: BOOMSHAKALAKA! Dave’s still out, but Coach, Mark, and D.C. Dan are in control again. They start off with a review of the NFL preseason so far and decide what team might jump from 4th to 1st in their division. Ben Shapiro from MassTalkLive recaps the MLB season so far and takes a look towards the playoffs. Dave joins the program to dissect the O’Bannon case, explaining why the NCAA is not finished and what’s next for the landscape of college athletics. He weighs in on the Kevin Love trade -- great for both teams -- which he says makes the Cleveland Cavaliers the favorites in a weak Eastern Conference. Finally, D.C. Dan lays out the English Premier League favorites for the 2014-2015 season.
