We got back on track after a wild Monday by debating the big NFL news of the day that Carson Palmer will soon be an Oakland Raider for 2 first rounders.  Is that too much for the Raiders to give up to the Bengals?  I love Palmer and the Raiders need a Qb to keep them on a roll.

Our buddy Trey Schaap hung out in the studio for awhile to recap the Q & A with Arkansas AD Jeff Long.  Jeff addressed all the future athletic facility expansions that will cost in excess of $300 million dollars.  Here's the recap.  You can also check out the whole video of Jeff Long at as well as the building plans.

Thanks to Jim Harris from for calling in for his weekly segment.  We talked Arkansas vs Ole Miss this weekend and tonight's ASU vs FIU game on ESPN2.  Of course, we had to show some St. Louis Cardinals love for Jim who grew up cheering for them.

Weekly Hooney Badger Awards were given out today.  Mine went to Dewey Bozella, imprisoned for 26 years wrongfully convicted on a murder charge.  He got out in 09 and one his first and only pro fight this past Saturday.

Freaky Joe gave his to Carson palmer for staying strong in his convictions and not playing until he is traded from the Bengals.  Way to hang in there Carson.

Justin gave his to the feisty coaches from over the weekend.  The best of which was the battle of Jim's.  Schwartz and Harbaugh.  The handshake heard round the league.

Chris Kramolis of Tropical Smoothie Cafe dropped in the studio to give us a breakdown of his Average Guy Movie Review of "The Big Year" with Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson.  It's about bird watching.  That's all you need to know.  Chris gave it 2.5 bananas.
