ESPN cuts, what the future holds for the Grizzlies after Game 5 loss to the Spurs, potential 1st round draft pick accused of rape 2 days before the NFL draft, High Fives & Handgrenades & Aaron Hernandez

College Football Podcast

Gary and Chris jump into a whole mess of topics, kicking off with ESPN’s layoffs and what it means for the future of sports media, along with which on-air personalities may be let go.

The topic then shifts to the Grizzlies loss to the Spurs in Game 5 of their series last night, discussing what went wrong, and what the future of the Grizzlies could be and how the team will be able to build itself back into a title contender.

From there, the two jump in on the Gareon Conley situation – he’s a potential top 15 NFL draft pick who was accused of rape just days before the NFL draft, and why we believe his agent and attorney are giving him absolutely awful career advice.

Then comes everyone’s favorite game show: High Fives & Handgrenades. Today’s topics include:

– Eric Thames of the Brewers already has 10 home runs in the first month – could he be juicing?
– Jabrill Peppers joined Reuben Foster with having diluted drug tests at the NFL combine… could this be PED related and are their excuses actually bogus?
– Tom Brady’s charity is catching some criticism, but should it be?
– All things NFL draft, including leaked info, will there be trades, will the SEC be the single most dominating conference?

Finally, the show closes out looking at a different side of the Aaron Hernandez story. Will his story help or hurt someone who may be secretly gay coming out?

About Gary Segars 226 Articles
Gary Segars began his first website, Manipulate Memphis, in 1998 as a sophomore in high school, writing reviews of cds and live shows in the Memphis area. He graduated and went on Northwest Community College as a journalism major, became editor of the college's newspaper, and subsequently dropped out after 3 semesters to pursue a career in music. Forever a fan of writing, he started the infamous MemphisTider.com blog during the 2006 football season, while still pursuing a music career, and was lucky enough to get into blogging just before the coaching search that landed Nick Saban at Alabama. The month and a half long search netted his site, which was known for tracking airplanes, and finding as much message board information as possible about the coaching search, over 1 million hits in less than 90 days. The website introduced Gary to tons of new friends, including Nico and Todd, who had just started the site RollBamaRoll.com. After diving into more than just Alabama news, Gary started up his first installment of WinningCuresEverything.com in 2012. After keeping the site quiet for a while, it was started back up in April 2016, and then Gary joined forces with his old high school friend Chris Giannini and began a podcast during the 2016 football season that runs at least 2 times a week, focusing on college football, NFL football, and sports wagering, and diving into other sports and pop-culture topics.
