Here’s what we have for you today:

1:10: Mariners lefty Erik Bedard joins the show. What has been the biggest difference so far between last year and this year? We’ll ask him. If you have any questions for Bedard, drop us an email at [email protected]

11:25: Jon Clayton makes his regular Tuesday appearance. He’ll be taking your phone calls at 11:40. 866-979-ESPN.

12:10: Former U.W Athletic Director Mike Lude. He has been quoted as saying that if her were still AD, the Apple Cup would be moved to Qwest over his dead body!

Also, what do you think of the fact that no one wants to trade up into the Top 10 of the NFL Draft? How crazy is that!!! I know that’s the economic realities of the situation and I’m not saying other teams actually want to trade up…but SHOULDN’T they? Doesd this measn the NFL Draft “system” is broken? We’ll discuss right off t6he top at 11:00.

And how much gamesmanship goes into the week or so leading up to the draft? Check out Pat Kirwin’s article from Here’s a sample:

Also in the ’95 draft, we took tight end Kyle Brady in the first round. A team drafting right below us swore they weren’t interested in him with their pick, but a young kid in the Penn State equipment room let our people know that this same club had called the day before the draft for his shoe size, helmet size and shoulder-pad preference. We felt like that information was solid and so we didn’t move down in hopes of getting Brady lower in the draft, even though there were offers to do so.

Plus, what would you do if you were trying to order playoff tickets to see your favorite team, but in order to get them you also had to buy this:




Check out the story from the Montreal Gazette. So bizarre.

As usual, you can call the show at 866-979-ESPN or 206-421-ESPN. Talk to you at 11:00!
