Rich comments on the firestorm unleashed on the college football world when Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban called out Texas A&M and Jimbo Fisher along with Jackson State's Deion Sanders for manipulating NIL deals to land top recruits. College Football Insider for The Athletic and FOX Sports Bruce Feldman and Rich discuss the “wild twist” that is Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher's war of words airing the SEC's dirty laundry when it comes to recruiting, the legality of NIL deals from state to state, and what the future of the sport could look like if some of the top teams in the country form ‘Superleagues' to bypass the NCAA. Rich reacts to Texas A&M's Jimbo Fisher saying he's not fully aware of the NIL arrangements his recruits are getting, and offers up some ways college football can fix the growing mess being caused by the proliferation of Name-Image-Likeness deals.

Jimbo is alongside Colin Millar, Jordan Campbell and Christoph Biermann as the first major European silverware of the season is decided. It's the biggest day in Eintracht Frankfurt's history as they overcome Rangers on penalties in Seville to win the Europa League.

It's mock draft season with the lottery set and it's time to take a spin around the internet to see who the Trail Blazers are projected to pick with the 7th selection in the 2022 NBA draft. There are a few consensus targets with Memphis' Jalen Duren, Arizona's Bennedict Mathurin and Duke's AJ Griffin the most common names pegged to land in Portland. However, according to Jason Quick of The Athletic the Blazers might already be looking to trade their pick. Portland had hoped to land in the top four of the draft and grab a franchise altering type talent, but after slipping to seventh GM Joe Cronin, according to Quick, is working the phones and is likely to move the Blazers pick in favor of adding veteran help to a roster that needs upgrades at both forward spots, and wants to be competitive immediately.

The Athletic's Michael Cox and Mark Carey join host Ali Maxwell to explore the shortlist for this season's Premier League Manager of the Season... How the award should be judged, who else deserved a nomination and should we be able to use underlying metrics to make a better case for some of them.

Dan Bardell celebrates the permanent signing of Philippe Coutinho with club correspondent Gregg Evans on The Athletic's podcast all about Aston Villa. At a reduced fee, and with a significant wage cut for the player, it looks like Villa's administrators have played a blinder, but is Barcelona's 50% share of a future transfer fee significant? Considering the ink was still fresh on that deal, and with a tribute to Villa's European Cup winners before kick-off, the performance against Palace, and the crowd, were strangely flat. What explains the muted atmosphere at Villa Park of late?

Tuesday, the show was centered around the hypothetical idea of the Lakers trading Anthony Davis. Why they ought to at least consider it, how it might help LeBron James and what kinds of packages they should look for. (Especially when trading Russell Westbrook is/should be a higher priority.) It's a thought exercise as much as anything—the Lakers are very unlikely to actually move him—but gets to the challenge of this offseason. It elicited a lot of reaction, which kicks off Wednesday's episode as well. People thought it was a great idea or a monumentally stupid one, with very little in the middle. Which gets to how complicated the repair job is for the Lakers. There is no clear path, it's a bunch of options all muddy and overgrown. Wouldn't they be better off just rolling with the core they have, asks one listener to Locked On Lakers on YouTube? Very possibly! But possibly, not, too. Meanwhile, reports from Sam Amick at The Athletic suggest the Lakers are talking to potential head coaching candidates about how they'd use Westbrook this season. Fans reacted poorly, but it would be malpractice not to have a plan for him, as a player, on the floor. He could be here, for sure, and if he is the Lakers need at least to try and use him. Finally, LeBron really doesn't like being out of the playoff spotlight. He did a Q/A this week, and while the results were relatively mild, the fact he did it at all was revealing. What would you want to ask him if given the opportunity? HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Reacting to listener reaction about the concept of trading Davis. SEGMENT 2: Fans are upset the Lakers are talking to coaching candidates about Westbrook. SEGMENT 3: LeBron's Q/A, and inability to chillax while the playoffs go on.

Kirk starts the show referencing two Mavs Moneyball posts: the unexpected match up between Dallas and Golden State and how it's time we appreciated Spencer Dinwiddie's playoff performances. Then he rambles a bit about a bad FiveThirtyEight correction and explanation. Next he mentions two Ringer articles, the first on how Luka is one of the five most interesting players left and the second on the Ringer's playoff projections. After that Kirk changes course wildly, lookin at the Athletic's first mock draft. Last, in terms of written content, three quick DMN pieces. First, a Mavs Bandwagon explainer, which cracked me up. Then Rick Carlisle called into 105.3 The Fan to chat Mavs. Last TNT's Reggie Miller perhaps takes too much credit for Doncic getting in shape.

As the calendar rolls over to May, we have a pretty good idea of what NFL teams are trying to be for 2022 and beyond. Free agency is winding down. The NFL Draft is in the rearview mirror.

Josh and Bobby tackle the IDPs in the AFC whose stock has ticked up and down, which doesn't mean these IDPs are stars or busts in the making.
