Welcome back to CSPN’s Know the Score!
This episode, we discuss the University of Missouri football team taking an unprecedented stand against on-campus racism. We interview veteran NFL offensive tackle and Georgia Bulldog George Foster (@GeorgeFoster72) about the impact of the actions at Mizzou. Plus, the NFL rolls on with drama at Dallas from Greg Hardy to Dez Bryant, Bills coach Rex Ryan returns to Jet Life Stadium, and a look at the key matchups of Week 10. Finally, the NBA finds Chef Curry still cookin’ at a two-time MVP rate, DeAndre Jordan returning ‘home’ to Dallas, and trouble in SacTown between Boogie Cousins & George Karl.
All of this, plus our nominees for the weekly #KTSPod awards.
