So whenever I check into Russo recently, it's like College Gameday. Who knew he was such a fan? Or maybe he isn't. But either way, he's taken to it like a drunk to free whiskey.

It does make sense though. He is talking to a national audience now. The only people in New York who care about college football are more concerned with the spread than any real passion for a school(although apparently hating Rutgers is some sort of NY/NJ metro area pastime. By the way, for all the haters from previous posts, how's that going? Seems Schiano has salvaged this season. And for the record, the only reason I care is because Ray Rice went to my neighboring high school. We don't have many athletes of note come out of 'the 914', so I must represent.)

But he has become very knowledgeable on the subject and he gets in a wide variety of guests in. So good job outta Doggie.

I have to be fair though. I've listened a little more to Russo today and along with the increase of college football coverage is the tendency to lean on press conferences. I don't know if he wants to give his voice a break or what, but they spend a lot of time listening to press conferences. That bores me 98% of the time. So I can't go too crazy about his show all the time.

Don't forget, this is still called the Mike AND the Maddog blog. It's gotta cover both. I listen to both, always comparing them as to what they are covering at the time, what thay are saying, how their shows are doing that day. Make the best out of a bad (the break-up) situation.
