4 Quarters Radio February 8

The first-quarter curriculum for February 8:
--Scott starts off all alone in his review of Super Bowl XLVI, discussing who really dug the 12-men-on-the-field approach and how Ahmad Bradshaw made the most of an alien circumstance. Once Logan shows up, they make sure to get their shots in on the absent Mack, whose Patriots came up limp. After some studio business complaints, they finally get back on task, noting just how close the Patriots have really come to being the Buffalo Bills.

1st Intermission: "Slight Work" by Wale ft. Big Sean.

The second-quarter curriculum:
--Scott and Logan continue with Super Bowl aftermath, talking about the Hall of Fame credentials of Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin. Coughlin, in particular, merits some scrutiny based on some underplayed similarities between him and another coach who's considered a Canton lock.
--Getting off the game, the fellas discuss all the other Super Bowl pageantry (halftime, commercials, etc.) and the idea of giving a car a pearl necklace figures prominently. (Don't ask, just listen.)
--Scott calls out ex-co-host Bobby for making weak declarations in regards to the career of Ricky Williams.
--In Whodaman, Scott has to give respect for a golfer who remembers his manners after a lecture from Mum.

Halftime Show: "Songs About Your Girlfriend" by Los Campesinos.

The third-quarter curriculum:
--Scott is joined by MTSU basketball coach Kermit Davis, and the coach isn't terribly pleased with Scott's line of questioning after two losses in three games. The Denver game and the forthcoming bout with Western Kentucky are primary topics.
--After the interview, Scott examines the bracketologists' projections, and the matchups aren't quite as promising as what they would have been the prior week.

3rd Intermission: "In the Middle of the Game (Don't Change the Play)" by Betty Wright and the Roots.

The fourth-quarter curriculum:
--Completely freestyling the fourth quarter, Scott starts off with a little morality discussion regarding M.I.A.'s middle finger heard round the world.
--The topic turns to Vegas's latest football bet, the future home of Peyton Manning. Scott's pet dark horse isn't getting serious money, but is being discussed in its local media.
--In the Epic Fails, Scott points and laughs at a "pro" basketball league whose "players" are so "talented," they allow their opponents to break two hundy in a regulation game.

Postgame Show: "Just Like Tiger Woods" by Steel Panther.

4 Quarters Radio February 1

The first-quarter curriculum for February 1:
--Joined for the first time in a while by Logan and Mack, Scott gets into predictions and expectations for Super Bowl XLVI. No decision is made on a humiliating wager, fortunately for Patriot backer Mack. Also, the 800-pound gorilla of Super Bowl week, the courtship of Peyton Manning, draws some discussion, including Scott's mention of one suitor that has received little discussion so far.

1st Intermission: "Girlie Girlie" by Sophia George.

The second-quarter curriculum:
--Daily News Journal (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) writer Adam Sparks joins the show to talk some MTSU basketball. The Blue Raiders' at-large chances, shooting issues and being outboarded against Vanderbilt are among the topics of discussion.
--Once Adam's off the line, the guys get into examining MTSU's NCAA Tournament projections. Highlights include CBS predicting a nine seed, a potential matchup with everyone's mid-major darling, and Scott discussing his own mid-major darling.
--A look at MTSU football's recruiting class follows, including Scott bemoaning the forthcoming Attaq of the Shaqs.

Halftime Show: "The Toad Lickers" by Thomas Dolby.

The third-quarter curriculum:
--In a belated Whodaman, Scott salutes a college hooper for droppin' fiddy, Mack shouts out a marathon tennis match, and Logan gives love to Twitter follower #69.
--The fellas dig into ESPN's NFL Any Era team, discussing a group of players whose games would have translated to any period of pro football history.

3rd Intermission: "Baaadnews" by JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound.

The fourth-quarter curriculum:
--Scott and Mack finish up the NFL Any Era Team, and seldom is heard a discouraging word about the top 10.
--The MLB hot stove gets examined, with Mack weighing in on the Fielder and Pujols deals and Scott making a rare statement in praise of the Yankees.
--In the Epic Fails, Logan bemoans the state of Vol basketball, while Scott heaps scorn on a psycho Lions fan.
