This week on the Table, we’re focusing on the Philly college sports programs that have kept the Philadelphia sports scene relevant over the past few years. Temple, Villanova, St. Joe’s, and Penn have been getting the job done.
But first on the Brief News & Views segment:
1. What does Michal Neuvirth’s injury mean for the Flyers? (3:10)
2. Phillies news and notes: the Opening Day starter, Franco’s contract and the outfield. (10:05)
3. Michael Jordan’s dominance off the court to the front office. (21:10)
4. Chip Kelly opened up about last season with the Eagles. (26:40)
5. TAKE IT or LEAVE IT: The Adam LaRoche/White Sox situation. Should bringing your child to work and in a MLB clubhouse be acceptable?
And then what we’re throwing down on the Table this week is a discussion about how Philly college sports programs have been more dominant and relevant than the Philly pro sports teams. A look at the pro teams’ records has painted a dim picture. But we take a look at the many successes of the Villanova, St. Joe and Temple men’s basketball programs. We also look at the University of Pennsylvania’s football program this past season as well as the surprise season Temple football gave us Philly sports fans. (52:55)
