“Now, if Dan hears this and gets bothered by it, you’re gonna have to send it back, but I think we’re gonna be fine.”

In October of last year, WEEI’s Greg Hill won the Marconi Award for Major Market Personality of the Year. In the process, he defeated Parkins & Spiegel of 670 The Score. FS1’s Nick Wright believed the Chicago show — hosted by one of his best friends, Danny Parkins — deserved to win the award, and made sure they received some recognition.

During an appearance on Parkins & Spiegel Tuesday, Wright informed the audience that he secured a trophy from the event for his friend.

“You guys were supposed to win that Marconi,” said Wright. “I got my hands on a physical Marconi Award — who cares who’s name is on it, I got it — it’s from this year’s awards, and I sent it to you. Because you guys deserved it. So you guys, at least from a hardware perspective, have a Marconi.”

“We have Dan Patrick’s Marconi,” Danny Parkins admitted.

“You do,” replied Wright. “You have the best national radio show Marconi. He sent it to me, and I sent it to you. Listen, the fact of the matter is, had I gotten to the stage in time to accept the award on his behalf, I would have just given it to you. I didn’t get there in time. Some executive got up there, got it, sent it to Dan, he sent it to me, and I sent it to you. Now, if Dan hears this and gets bothered by it, you’re gonna have to send it back, but I think we’re gonna be fine.”

Parkins then said he could say he was nominated for a Marconi and he had a Marconi, he just didn’t win a Marconi.

“It is 100% true to say that from the 2022 Marconi Awards, that you were nominated, and it is also true to say that you have a Marconi Award for Radio Show of the Year. It’s true,” Wright concluded.

Marcellus Wiley: Shannon Sharpe Was Trying to Go Viral At Any Cost

“We are grown men with lots of commas on our checks. Why are you acting like this and broadcasting this to the world?”

Shannon Sharpe caused an on-court fracas over the weekend after getting into a shouting match with Memphis Grizzlies forward Dillon Brooks. The video of the altercation went viral, and that’s exactly what Sharpe wanted, according to Marcellus Wiley.

During an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show Tuesday, Wiley — a former colleague of Sharpe’s at FOX Sports — claimed the Pro Football Hall of Famer was in the wrong for his actions and believed there was an ulterior motive at play.

“It was dead wrong,” Wiley said. “It just seemed like a traveling circus. We have this element in media now where we’re trying to go viral at any cost, and it just felt like it was one of those moments that was lacking authenticity and it just seemed like it was thirsting for attention.”

The More to It podcast host then joked about what a fight between Sharpe and Brooks would have looked like, before ultimately noting that an altercation with Grizzlies center Steven Adams would not have gone well for Sharpe.

Wiley also pondered the emotional maturity of not only Sharpe but all the players involved in the incident as well.

“We are grown men with lots of commas on our checks. Why are you acting like this and broadcasting this to the world?”

Jason Campbell To Replace Stan White on Auburn Football Radio Crew

“I look forward to sharing great memories with you alongside the Voice of the Tigers, Andy Burcham, this fall.”

Former Auburn and NFL quarterback Jason Campbell has signed on to become the new color commentator for his alma mater’s football radio broadcasts. He replaces another former Auburn signal caller, Stan White, who announced his retirement last November.

“I would like to thank God for this amazing opportunity to continue doing something I enjoy and love,” Campbell said. “I appreciate the Auburn Sports Network team and Stan for their immediate confidence in me as I move into the analyst role. I know I have incredibly big shoes to fill. It has been a privilege watching and learning from Stan during our time in the booth together. Auburn Family, I look forward to sharing great memories with you alongside the Voice of the Tigers, Andy Burcham, this fall.”

The 41-year-old Campbell was a first round pick of the then-Washington Redskins in the 2005 NFL Draft, playing for five teams during his nine-year career. He joined the Auburn radio crew in 2015 after retiring from the NFL, working as the network’s pregame and halftime analyst.

Campbell becomes the third analyst in the last 43 years for the radio network. Former Auburn quarterback Charlie Trotman worked in the role from 1980-2000, before being succeeded by Stan White.

“Stan has given the last 22 years of his life, in part, to Auburn football and the Auburn Sports Network,” Auburn radio voice Andy Burcham said in a statement. “He has become one of the top analysts, not only in the SEC, but in the country. I thank Stan for his outstanding work and his friendship. He will be missed with our crew and the Auburn Family. We are excited about the next chapter in Jason Campbell’s radio career. He was the overwhelming choice to replace Stan in the booth.”

Jon Marks: ‘Chris Simms Sounds So Silly’

“Apparently, he’s so pot-committed that he can’t come off of it.”

Chris Simms is not a fan of Jalen Hurts. Despite the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback accounting for three touchdowns and outplaying Daniel Jones in the team’s Divisional Round win over the New York Giants, Simms is adamant that Jones is the better quarterback.

“He can do some of the things that Jalen Hurts can,” Simms said recently on his Unbuttoned podcast. “Maybe not as good a runner, but we know it’s really close. It’s not like ‘Woah! Way better’. If you’re gonna ask me who I would rather have as a passer, I’d rather have Daniel Jones.”

Those comments did not go unnoticed by Marks & Reese on 94 WIP in Philadelphia. On Tuesday, Jon Marks said that the Football Night in America analyst “sounds so silly” by insisting on not giving Jalen Hurts credit.

“Apparently, he’s so pot-committed that he can’t come off of it,” Marks said. “He remains right there. There’s no reason after watching that game you should still be saying things about Daniel Jones, that he thinks Daniel Jones is a better quarterback than Jalen Hurts or anything like that.”

Marks’ partner Ike Reese pointed out that there is clearly something Chris Simms does not like about Jalen Hurts. In the past, Reese says he has heard Simms say that he would take Minnesota Vikings backup Kellen Mond over Hurts.

He said that anyone that committed to a bit is not going to be swayed. The Eagles winning a Super Bowl with Jalen Hurts under center is the only thing that even stands a chance of changing Chris Simms’s mind.

“That’s the whole thing about being pot-committed to a take,” Reese said. “You’ve got a point until proven wrong.”
