New episode! Adam rants, David Price and are YOU ready for some football?!

This week Eno and Big Al welcome back the “Fourth Jerk,” Adam Biggers, for another edition of Adam Rants. This week Adam complains of heat stroke and can’t believe that U-M Athletic Director Dave Brandon is getting flak over daring to hold a soccer game at The Big House.
After Adam rants, Eno and Big Al assess the Tigers’ big deadline day move of bringing in lefty ace David Price, at the expense of Austin Jackson, Drew Smyly and 18 year-old shortstop Willy Adames.
More Tigers talk follows, then the Jerks get into the nasty Paul George injury, Lions training camp and whether the guys feel like they’re ready for some football!
All that and more, plus “Jerk of the Week” and “Whose Birthday Is It”!
It all happens HERE.
Long-time Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters, Greg Eno (aka the man who knows a lot of things about a lot of things), and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks! Eno and Big Al’s podcast is released every Monday on the Sports Geeks Radio Network!

Here's the link to our latest episode, in which Eno and Big Al talk Tigers at the halfway point and discuss free agency in the NBA and NHL, including why Eno thinks no FAs signed with the Red Wings.

Coming on July 21: EMU football Coach Chris Creighton, who'll talk about how he intends on rejuvenating that wayward program---plus why the school is going with a GRAY football field and nicknaming Rynearson Stadium "The Factory."

An announcement for our fans

To fans of "The Knee Jerks": No show this week due to prior commitments. Eno and Big Al would like folks to know that while forces outside of our control have led to the Jerks taking more weeks off than normal in 2014, we are still committed to bringing you as many new episodes as we can this year and beyond. Go Tigers, Pistons, Lions and Red Wings!

New episode! Oakland University's 'King of the Three'

We are joined by special guest Travis Bader of Oakland University, who is looking to be drafted by an NBA team this Thursday.

Last March, Travis set a new all-time record for three-pointers made in the NCAA, breaking that of JJ Redick from Duke.

Travis talks to the Jerks about his whirlwind life in recent weeks, traveling the country, working out for various NBA teams. He also looks back at his time at OU and speaks about the quality of basketball in the state of Michigan. Joining in the interview is resident ranter Adam Biggers.

After Travis's interview and Adam's rant, the guys talk Tigers (are they back?) and the World Cup (Eno hasn't watched a minute and Big Al has turned into a soccer fan).

All that, plus "Whose Birthday Is It?" (at stake: a giant tube of Brylcreem) and "Jerk of the Week"!

It all can be heard HERE.

Tonight! 66 minutes of fun, featuring our Red Wings and NHL Insider Matt Hutter, and reaction to Bill Ford's death

Tonight we present a short and sweet episode (66 minutes) of "The Knee Jerks"!

In about an hour, we pack a lot in!

It all starts with a visit from our "Third Jerk" and our Red Wings and NHL Insider, Matt Hutter, who talks about the legacy of Nick Lidstrom, the team's playoff chances (you're not going to like it), and the brightness of the future with the kids.

After Matt, Eno and Big Al discuss the breaking news (at the time of recording) of the death of Lions owner Bill Ford at age 88. Should Ford's legacy be limited to the Lions' success (or lack thereof) on the field? Or was he much more than that, and should be remembered as such? How much of the losing was his fault? What happens to the franchise going forward? Will it be another Pistons situation?

Then, it's a few minutes on the health of another Detroit sports owner---Mike Ilitch. If the worst happens, how are the Red Wings and Tigers set up for the future in an ownership transition? Any Pistons-like worries with them as well?

All that, plus "Whose Birthday Is It?" (at stake: 3 days, 1 night in Tijuana---Al is on his own the second night---courtesy of Air Mexico) and "Jerk of the Week"!

It all can be found HERE.

Tonight: Adam Biggers; Pistons President Isiah Thomas??? (plus Tigers "aggressive" base running)

If it's Monday, it's the Knee Jerks!

Tonight we regale you with a new episode, featuring "4th Jerk" Adam Biggers in another edition of "Adam Rants." This week, Adam (who can be read at Bleacher Report and heard on Blog Talk Radio's "The Great Divide") handicaps MSU basketball, specifically the Spartans' chances of doing damage in the B1G Tournament and the Big Dance later this month.

After Adam, Eno and Big Al try to wrap their minds around the rumors that the Pistons are considering hiring Isiah Thomas to run the team. Could Isiah---whose post-playing resume, especially when it comes to management, is suspect---actually fix the mess in Auburn Hills?

Also on the docket: the Tigers and their new "aggressive base running is back in town" approach; the NHL and fighting (especially in light of the recent war of words between Ottawa's Chris Neal and the Red Wings' Johan Franzen); all that, plus "Whose Birthday Is It?" (prize: year's supply of Silly Putty and Silly String) and "Jerk of the Week"!

It all happens at 7:00 p.m. HERE.
