Greg Eno, Nick Milanovich and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks! The Knee Jerks Podcast has been on the sports beat for more 14 years, always with a Detroit attitude!



Detroit sports podcasters Greg Eno, Big Al Beaton and Nick Milanovich are The Knee Jerks! 

It's a threesome this week (Greg's words) as Eno, Nick and Big Al talk the latest in Detroit sports. Two topics dominated, which we cover in-depth. 

This week we discuss: 

Tuck is no longer comin'. Michigan State suspended head football coach Mel Tucker without pay while MSU investigates allegations that he sexually harassed Brenda Tracy, a rape survivor and activist well known for advocating for victims of assault and taking to college athletes.  The details are, to put it mildly, awful.

Tucker's defense is a conspiracy theory, claiming the inquiry is little more than "an ulterior motive" so MSU can get out of his ridiculous 10-year, $95 million contract via the moral turpitude clause.  Yes, this is going to get ugly and likely end up in court. Regardless, Tucker's Power 5 coaching career is over, no matter what happens.

The Detroit Lions start living up to the hype, taking down the Kansas City Chiefs in Arrowhead, 21-20. 

Chiefs RT Jawaan Taylor appeared to jump early on nearly every snap. Even worse, Taylor was illegally lining up well off the line of scrimmage, to the point where Cris Collinsworth called Taylor a "slot receiver." Yet the refs only called one false start on the Chiefs. 

The Lions took on their biggest rival, the zebras, and won! In the words of Dan Campbell, "You gotta adjust." To the Lions credit, they did.

NBC's Mike Tirico caught serious fan blowback when he said the Lions' victory would have an asterisk next to it due to the Chiefs missing Chris Jones and Travis Kelce. Tirico, who lives in Ann Arbor, said it was taken out of context.  Always quick with a quote, when asked, Campbell replied. “Well, is there an asterisk next to our 1-0?” 

Up next for the Lions is their home opener. They take on the team that knocked them out of the playoffs in week 18, the Seattle Seahawks. To say Ford Field will be a madhouse is an understatement. 

It's the NFL's world and we're just living in it. Lions - Chiefs averaged 27M viewers and was the most-watched program on TV since Super Bowl LVII last February.

Is anyone watching the Detroit Tigers? Bueller? Bueller?

Plus we play The Birthday Game and name our respective Jerk of the Week!
