Episode 22 – Rivalry Week

BMore Wired Baltimore Ravens logo

It is rivalry week for many teams in football this week, including the Baltimore Ravens upcoming matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals to reclaim the top spot in the AFC North.

It is rivalry week in college football, and while the Maryland Terrapins don’t necessarily have a rival in college football, there is still plenty to talk about in Baltimore.

The Terps are looking to get two wins on Saturday: a win over Rutgers would make the Terps football team bowl eligible, while Melo Trimble and the Maryland basketball squad can win their third straight early-season tournament by defeating Kansas State. It turned out to be a great day to be a Terps fan as both teams won.

Our 7s feature some of the wackiest talk yet, including some talk about peeing in the tub and teammates playing with each other’s genitalia. We also talk about the moves at Texas now that Charlie Strong has been fired.

We talk the Baltimore Orioles with bmorewired.com writer Kyle Andrews, discussing some offseason moves, as well as an inside look at why Camden Yards has no grass. Kyle gives us his prediction for the Orioles Opening Day lineup which includes Angel Pagan as one of the O’s offseason additions.

It’s also rivalry week for the Baltimore Ravens as they take on the Cincinnati Bengals this week. Adam Bonaccorsi also joins the show to preview the matchup. We discuss what is ahead for the Ravens and whether or not the Cleveland Browns get a win at all this season. We also touch on how both Ravens offensive coordinators, Marc Trestman and Marty Mornhinweg, both refuse to use their running backs in the second half of games. Could this be the last season with John Harbaugh? It could be if the Ravens fail to make the playoffs.

The show ends with my NFL picks and the New England Patriots are my lock of the week against the New York Jets. Also like the Seattle Seahawks against Tampa Bay.

Until next week, cue the music.
