The guys begin Episode 105 honoring the remembrance of Scott’s dog Dante who passed away last week. Then, Mitch sneaks in a quick thought on the silent emergence of Luca Doncic before delving into the news of Earl Thomas’ release from the Ravens. A trio of featured guests beginning with national football columnist and Baltimore sports radio host Jason La Canfora followed by a return of Kansas State University AD Gene Taylor on the 2020 football season and Yale researcher Anne Wyllie on a breakthrough COVID-19 saliva test. Later, Mitch and Scott volley a laundry list of “other stuff” including Tom Brenneman’s broadcast blunder, geeky golf grass talk, and Diana Taurasi’s intimidating reputation caught on audio!
