SEGMENT 1 – Show Open: The Boys are broadcasting from Ryan Kelley’s headquarters, are there any radio awards given out in St. Louis? Mizzouri football team in protest and refuses to play unless President Tim Wolfe resigns, Coach Gary Pinkel gives statement to media following the Mizzouri Football team protest, how will this situation at Mizzou play out? Doug finds the demands of the players ridiculous, Jonathan Butler of Mizzou is currently on day 7 of his hunger strike and refuses to eat until President Wolfe resigns, hard for players to come out against the strike because it will cause backlash with teammates, is this situation exaggerated by the players? Can’t allow the students to run the University, how quickly will this situation be resolved? Caller Ellen gives her take on the Missouri protest situation and on President Tim Wolfe. Joe Strauss of the Post-Dispatch joins the program to talk Mizzou and Rams, Strauss gives his thoughts on the Missouri protest, why is the football team the only sport protesting on the campus of Missouri? Would the players be doing this if they were having a better season than they are currently? This protest puts Coach Pinkel in a tough spot, will anyone from the University of Missouri speak to this issue? Strauss does not believe President Wolfe should be fired, These situations get worse when politicians get involved and give their two cents on the issue at hand, will President Wolfe be the sacrificial lamb and lose his job because of the pressure the players are putting on him and the University? Strauss on the Rams miserable offense, going for 2 in the first quarter by the Rams made zero sense, Cardinals offer Lackey and Heyward their qualifying offers, will the Cardinals try and trade Lance Lynn and keep Lackey?

SEGMENT 4Gabe DeArmond of PowerMizzou.com joins the program to discuss the Mizzou situation and how Columbia is reacting, Gabe finds it hard to put himself in the players shoes and if they are handling it the correct way, why wasnt this news a national story before the weekend because Butler has been doing his hunger strike for a week now, Pinkel has no choice but to side with the players even though he is in a very difficult spot with the players and the University, this will be hard to recruit and get players to Mizzou with this story hanging over its head, will faculty members go out and protest with the players? The campus has been a mess for awhile, why do all the big stories in sports come out of the University Of Missouri, politicians are even calling for President Wolfe’s head and wanting him to step down, does President Wolfe deserve to be let go?
