EDSBS LIVE Goes Retro!

New, 24 comments

It's Tuesday, which means another edition of EDSBS LIVE this evening with Orson and I. Tonight, we go retro...


What: EDSBS LIVE online radio

Where: At NowLive, where you can chat with each other and the show hosts throughout the broadcast in the online forum (which has gotten damn lively). To phone in to the show, just call (310) 984-7600.

What: Tonight we're going back in time to talk college football history. Retro-theme throughout the show, including a conversation with Houston Chronicle columnist John Lopez - who knows a thing or two about Texas football history - and Ronald Smith, author of Sports and Freedom: The Rise of Big-Time College Athletics.

Four Questions: As always, our four questions for the night.

1. Who’s the best pre-1990 college football team of all time? Yes, we're opening that can of worms.

2. Your favorite pre-1990 football player? Did Vince Young's father play as a youngster? If so, that's my choice.

3. Get in touch with your inner Luddite: strike one aspect of the modern game and/or the way its broadcast. Personally, I'd bring back the old idea of planting the field goal posts right on the goal line. The accidental collisions on near-touchdown catches would provide enough entertainment for its own half-hour weekly show.

4. In our quest to prove Angelina Jolie is the most overrated hottie of all time, we ask you: who's your favorite retro babe? I'll take two portions of Sophia Loren and a side of Elizabeth Taylor, please.

See you tonight at 6:30.
