EDSBS LIVE Starts Fall Practice

Another Tuesday, another edition of EDSBS Live! with Orson and me.

I'm swamped with a bunch of work between now and showtime, so I'll make this brief and urge you to join us tonight at the show.

What: EDSBS Live! online radio. Fall Practice Edition

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.

Who: No special guests this week. We're just taking calls and talking fall practice. Football's back and we're damn excited.

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

1. What’s your fall question marks for your team?

We've beat all these to death now, haven't we? An unproven secondary, depth issues on the offensive line, a running game that sputtered and died at the end of '07, and over/under questions on player arrests.

2. Who is the player your team CANNOT lose this fall?

As is well known around here, I still say it's Colt McCoy. It's not that this wouldn't be a good team without him - it's that our chances of having a truly elite season depend entirely on his ability to be superb.

3. Your preseason shopping list?

  1. ESPN College Football GamePlan
  1. TiVo
  1. Plane ticket to Austin for Nebraska, A&M games
  1. Lots and lots of Tums.

4. What’s something that gets you almost as excited as football?

God I really want to answer with tailgating, but that doesn't quite feel right. Football capital F includes pregame rituals. Instead, a nod this week to my boy Barry Bonds. This is his big week, after all. I know I'm in the minority here, but you don't always choose your heroes, right?

See you tonight at 6:30.
