Every three or four months Outkick takes a look at the sports talk radio ratings to compile the top 25 sports talk stations in the country. The only public data on these ratings is published here and relies upon the largest possible measurement of the audience -- ratings share for listeners ages six + from six in the morning until midnight.  It's not a perfect data set, but it's the most fair since a station can't rate highly all day long unless its day part ratings are much higher than the six to midnight number.

These are ratings share numbers, not total listener numbers. That is, each station is being compared based on the percentage of people in a market listening, not based on the number of listeners. But as you can see below, both large, small, and mid-size cities are well-represented in this list.  

So which stations in the nation's fifty largest radio markets are the highest rated in the country for March?

You can dive in below.

It sounds like a teaser for an episode of HBO’s True Blood, but Arkansas fans found out just how true it is on Saturday against the University of Louisiana at Monroe in Little Rock: You can’t outrun what you really are.

By Craig Hayes

Late Saturday night as I was alternating between Missouri's debut in the SEC and the "no defense allowed" game that was going on between UCLA and Nebraska, I gradually started directing my attention to the Arkansas, Louisiana Monroe game as the War Hawks, a full 30 point underdogs, were hanging tough with the Razorbacks and ended up driving to a potential game tying score with less than a minute to go in regulation.

Y'all make every day on Twitter fun. Because as soon as an Arkansas Razorback fan pins up her nose and sings about the Louisiana-Monroe loss, I see it instantly.

You thought your team had a rough day?

At least you didn't lose to Louisiana-Monroe while wearing a hog hat.

And at least if your team lost you didn't pin up your nose and sing a song about standing behind your team.

Even John L. Smith thinks this is crazy.

Hell, even the Arkansas tattoo guy thinks this is crazy.

Enjoy.

Clay asked me to take some video at the Vanderbilt/South Carolina game last Thursday. I’m more of a behind the scenes girl, but hey, I’ll give it a shot. What should I film? Anything. Anything? Anything. OK. Surely there will be something worth filming. This is the season opener on ESPN against preseason ranked #9 South Carolina with our feisty big-mouthed coach at the helm. 

Starting 11: SEC Blueboods Triumph Over Newbies

Written by: Clay Travis

The third quarters of Florida--Texas A&M and Georgia -- Mizzou were eerily familiar. The Aggies had a 17-7 lead and the Tigers led 17-9, both early in the third quarter. It would be the high point for both SEC newcomers, the Gators scored the final 13 in College Station and Georgia outscored Mizzou 32-3 in the final 16 minutes of that game. Just like that both upset bids died on the vine. I think you'll probably see quite a bit of this for the duo this year, competitive for much of the game but just not able to flip the switch and come back for the win. (For Texas A&M fans I have no idea what you guys must be feeling. Your curse of double digit leads continues, even with a new coach).

I'm going to write on my Mizzou trip tomorrow because Monday has already gotten away from me, so in the meantime here is this week's Starting 11.

Yes, that's really R2D2, which I will replicate for you below.

Columbia, Mo

Old man football beat new kid football on Saturday night in Missouri's SEC home opener against Georgia.

The atmosphere was electric, the Zou was rocking, heading into halftime, the Tigers had the lead on the number 7 team in the country. The Missouri Tigers perpetual trivia answers for questions about miracle teams that went on to win improbable national titles -- remember Colorado's fifth down win and Nebraska's miraculous kicked ball catch, both came against Mizzou -- were going head-to-head with one of the best teams in the SEC. 

This was a new birth of program freedom, a national television audience, one of the SEC's top powers down eight midway through the third quarter with a raucous crowd chanting along and cannons exploding on the field as big play touchdowns piled up.  

Todd Fuhrman from Vegas: Week Two

Written by: Todd Fuhrman

Week 1 gave us some betting surprises (Houston losing outright as 36.5 pt chalk) and some games that opened our eyes with dominating performances (Oregon's first team offense, Alabama). However unlike the mass media that loves to rehash and extrapolate from one week’s results, we put the previous games to bed after a quick post mortem in the betting world.  From a viewing standpoint week 2 may not offer a ton of make or break games but for the gambler, opportunity always abounds. It’s only Friday however we’ve seen a few strong line moves on a couple marquee games.

All That and a Bag of Mail: Mizzou Trip Edition

Written by: Clay Travis

Before we get rolling on the mailbag, how about a golf clap for Ole Miss fans?

So far they've been absent from our tattoo race and any awkward fan photos, but this is quite a doozy. An actual pile of poo where Starkville is located? On your body for the rest of your life?

That's quality fandom.

Not bad for Ole Piss! (The message boards are rolling. Did you see what I did there? I switched an M for a P! It's the best insult ever! An M for a P!)

Our beaver pelt trader of the week is Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson. Please keep talking. You're the only SEC player who has said anything remotely interesting all season.

On to the mailbag, but first, one more look at the Ole Miss tattoo.

Nick Saban is an ornery, obstinate, perpetually angry man.

And this week he's furious.

At who?

The media.

Why?

Because the media believes his football team is really, really good.

How dare the media praise Nick Saban's team in a way that Nick Saban does not feel is appropriate?

The media is so scared that only three questions are asked. Access, baby, access.

And why is Saban so angry? I challenge you to find one negative story that anyone in that room has written about Alabama football in the past three months. Just one! 

I wish I'd been at this press conference so I could have asked the first question. Which would have been: "So you don't believe that this team could beat five or six NFL teams like Western Kentucky head coach Willie Taggart said earlier this week?"

Oh, that response would have been fantastic.

Vinnie Verno's Back for Week 2 Picks

Written by: Clay Travis

Last week brought the return of Vinnie Verno, but his debut fell a little flat 1-2 for the kickoff specials.

This week Vinnie back stronger than ever, betting the baby again?

Watch as he dives into Auburn-Mississippi State, Georgia-Missouri, and Duke-Stanford.

Remember, he makes picks, you make money.

Once more, click pause on the videos up on the right side if you're having an issue hearing both.

Then, he makes picks, you make money.
