BCS National Championship
Mike and Todd open up today's show talking about last nights 42-14 Alabama had over Notre Dame. Mike Gill says the Irish didn't deserve to be ranked # 1 even if they had an undefeated record. Todd Ranck says thats the "nature of the BCS beast."
News came out, which the Eagles later confirmed that they will interview former Bears head coach Lovie Smith on Thursday. Todd Ranck likes the move because of his defensive mind. Mike Gill on the other hand isn't in love with the move, but thinks the Eagles could do worse.
Phillies GM Ruben Amaro called in at 3:15 to talk about the off season and upcoming Spring Training. On Chase Utley: He's been taking ground balls all off season long and some trainers will be checking on him in the coming weeks to see where he is at. Amaro also said that the "likelihood of another move happening before Spring Training is fairly low." Amaro also said that the age of this team doesn't concern me as much as the health of the team." Phillies Spring Training tickets go on sale this Thursday.
