John & Hugh Discover Trae Young’s Dad Blocked Them On Twitter

“He must be listening to the show on the Audacy app and didn’t like what he heard, which is interesting. While we have been critical of Trae, we have never destroyed him.”

When you are the flagship station of the Atlanta Hawks, it makes sense that your morning show would talk about the team. When things aren’t going well for the team, those conversations can sometimes be critical. Last week, John & Hugh discovered that the dad of Hawks’ star Trae Young apparently did not approve of some of the conversations about his son and the team.

Hugh Douglas revealed that he discovered he was blocked when he tried to see a tweet from Rayford Young detailing what a championship basketball team needs to be successful.

“When I go to the page, all I can see are the comments,” he said. “I can’t actually see the whole thing.”

Douglas said that he then tried to go to Young’s personal page and discovered he was blocked. He revealed that he had met Rayford Young once and they had a lighthearted conversation, so it cannot be a personal problem. Douglas also didn’t think it could be about something he said about Trae Young on the show or online.

“I wasn’t mad. I was more confused than anything because we talk basketball, but I don’t tweet basketball. I don’t tweet basketball like I do football or even baseball.”

John Fricke said that when he found out Douglas was blocked by the elder Young, he checked to see if the same was true for him. It turns out he was blocked as well. That was enough evidence for Fricke that this had to be about something specific. He just didn’t know what.

“I thought well, he’s blocked both of us,” Fricke said. “He must be listening to the show on the Audacy app and didn’t like what he heard, which is interesting. While we have been critical of Trae, we have never destroyed him.”

John & Hugh are far from the only ones that have discussed the Hawks’ struggles this season. Earlier this month, Bleacher Report published a column suggesting that Trae Young could be the next superstar in the NBA to demand a trade. The duo admit that it is something they discussed and expressed disappointment over, but still could not point to anything they had said or done that could be construed as a personal attack.

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
