4 Quarters Radio: September 23 4th Quarter

The fourth-quarter curriculum for September 23:

--One more NFL topic remains: New York's mean green drama queens. The guys weigh in on whether or not Braylon Edwards should get a week off unpaid.
--Brief mention is made of MLB's exploding bat epidemic, sparked by the impalement of Cubs rookie Tyler Colvin.
--Also, Scott does the math and determines that George Steinbrenner is apparently more important than Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle, DiMaggio and Huggins combined.
--The trade suitors for Carmelo Anthony are weighed and measured...and mostly found wanting.
--Bobby gets enlightened on reports of Chael Sonnen's potential wrongdoing, and the finer points of backne are discussed.
--Finally, we get to the MMA Authority's picks for UFC 119. Bobby loses it midway through, and you'll have to listen to find out why.
--In the Epic Fails, Bobby's still miserable about the Raiders, while Scott notes that the Diamondbacks and the NCAA are striking out in different ways.

4 Quarters Radio: September 23 3rd Quarter

The third-quarter curriculum for September 23:

--A belated Whodaman starts off the second half. Logan's selfish, giving love to his fantasy football stalwart, while Scott honors the triumph of upstanding players over field-crashing idiots.
--Scott's briefly solo, and takes the time to weigh in on the NFL teams changing quarterbacks after only two games. For the most part, they're the teams that one would expect to be flailing for answers.
--Scott sounds a death knell for Percy Harvin's NFL career, wondering how anyone can absorb that kind of physical abuse and work around migraines.
--Bobby arrives and immediately gets to weigh in on his teams, the Raiders and Eagles, with their new signal-callers.
--Bobby also pauses to ponder whether or not Jeff Fisher has a personal grudge against Vince Young. Scott, meanwhile, celebrates the first Kerry Collins sighting as the true beginning of fall.
--Scott spotlights which NFL team will be last to win...AND when it will happen. Write it down.

4 Quarters Radio: September 23 2nd Quarter

The second-quarter curriculum for September 23rd:

--Scott and Logan are joined by Louisiana-Lafayette beat writer Joshua Parrott of the Daily Advertiser (Lafayette, La.). They discuss the forthcoming game between the Ragin' Cajuns and MTSU. Topics include the Cajuns' stud tight end Ladarius Green, a lineman's full-time job as part of a South American mountain range, and a potential Cajun recruit gone too soon.
--The MTSU game against Memphis...well, the less said about that, the better. The O-line's M*A*S*H unit gets a quick status update, complete with the obligatory Klinger reference.

4 Quarters Radio: September 23 1st Quarter

The first-quarter curriculum for 4QR's September 23 edition:

The week in college football gets a once-over, including:
--4QR's northern correspondent Adam Biggers checks in to discuss Sparty pulling the fake of the decade on Notre Lame;
--The top four Heisman candidates get ranked (hint: Denard Robinson probably won't keep up the psychotic pace he's currently on);
--A brief moment of silence for the Houston Cougars, losing their top two quarterbacks, including boxscore-stuffer extraordinaire Case Keenum;
--Scott goes into the games he's interested in seeing this weekend, including the potential Boise-killer that no one's talking about;
--And one impressive statistic that most of college football wishes they could emulate.

4 Quarters Radio: September 16 4th Quarter

The fourth-quarter curriculum for September 16:
--Finally, some NFL talk. Scott and Bobby play Medal Stand and name their three Tops and Flops of Week 1. A perfect name for Arian Foster's fan club is suggested.
--The Ines Sainz situation gets a once-over, and as usual, Scott's got a somewhat radical solution. Clinton Portis guest stars.
--Also brought under the Professor's microscope is the TD catch that wasn't for Calvin Johnson. Scott explains why the rule was interpreted well and there's no making exceptions for a gifted receiver like Megatron.
--The Epic Fails feature a lineman who needs to transition into another sport, and Scott also adds a little extra kick for Porcelain Bob.

4 Quarters Radio: September 16 3rd Quarter

The third-quarter curriculum for September 16:
--Bobby shows up immediately at the start of the quarter, sporting a rather amusing T-shirt. He then proceeds to take a nap as Scott highlights some MLB players doing good work on bad teams.
--Once Scott wakes Bobby up, they discuss assorted results from UFC Ultimate Fight Night. Rousimar Palhares gets some grief for not being
smart enough to get out of his opponent's way before whining to the ref.
--Finally, some mention of a "dwarf" MMA fighter-in-training. Don't worry, it's a short story.

Excised music: "Losing Sleep" by Edwyn Collins.

4 Quarters Radio: September 16 2nd Quarter

The second-quarter curriculum for September 16th:
--We get to know the new intern a bit, finding out which teams we can bust his chops over.
--The MTSU soccer team's headed into a meat grinder of a weekend, and some national honors come to a Lady Raider volleyballer.
--In college football, the guys discuss Reggie Bush's Heisman and whether the Downtown Athletic Club will replace Bush's picture with a nice potted plant or something.
--Florida player Chris Rainey's aggravated stalking case comes under scrutiny as well, as Florida fans start to put the "Get 'er" in "Gator."
--A pair of SEC college basketball stalwarts are having their own issues. The troubles of Bruce Pearl and John Calamari draw some discussion. No points for guessing which one gets made fun of harder.
--In Whodaman, Scott's a bit conflicted. One of his choices makes him very happy, the other not so much. But, being the dedicated professional he is, game still recognizes game.
