Featured Story

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.

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.

I flew down to Texas this weekend for my buddy's wedding. He’s an Aggie alumnus, Ensign in the Navy, and is currently training to become a Helicopter pilot.

"Hey Pussy!" I cringed as I slowly limped away from the last set of gassers, praying that the screaming voice of the team captain wasn't for me. "Hey 95!" It was. That was the jersey number the equipment manager gave me about two hours earlier. The first and only time I would wear that number, and the last time I would wear shoulder pads for the rest of my life. I was 21 years old.

LSU Fan Gets Branded, Really

Written by: Clay Travis

Last year at the national title game an LSU fan allowed himself to be tied down to a table and branded with LSU letters.

This surprises no one.

He did this before the national title game and amazingly OKTC reader Stephen Leathers is just now sharing it with us.

Up until now I've thought the teabagger had the roughest post-national title game, but can you imagine what this guy felt like when Jordan Jefferson didn't get pulled and Bama ran roughshod over his team? He's sitting there with a throbbing lower calf -- which probably got infected given the fact that he's an LSU fan in New Orleans willing to get branded before a football game. This means he definitely passed out in a urine-soaked gutter somewhere. Probably after paying $34 for a she-male hand job in the French Quarter.

And you know that the LSU treatment for a branding is the same treatment that Civil War soldiers got for an amputation, a bottle of whiskey, a dash of laudanum, and a minie ball to bite your teeth on.

Also, you know that some LSU fans watching this video are going to be like, "Dude, the burner's for the corndogs, don't waste the fuel."

Plus, as several of you pointed out, he's strapped to a beer pong table.

A beer pong table!

Never change LSU fans. Ever.

So Florida Gator fans are making a awkward fan run this season.

Last week we brought you the Florida Gator fan tattoo.

Now a Florida Gator fan is selling a 13 foot 4 inch, 700 pound gator that he's had mounted, stood up, placed a Tebow jersey on the Gator, and duct taped a football signed by Tebow, Danny Wuerffel, and Steve Spurrier in the gators left paw. (Presumably because Tebow is left handed. The detail work here is outstanding).

It's a legally killed nuisance Gator -- papers and everything! -- and it will only cost you $10,000.

Here's the eBay listing.

The entire listing is a comedy pyramid, but this is my favorite part: "This may be the only real gator of this size mounted standing up, doing a Heisman trophy pose in the country. I'm not saying one is not in existence but none of the taxidermists we spoke with had ever seen or heard of anything like this before." 

Late Monday night, I almost died in a plane crash somewhere over Kansas City.

At least I felt like I was going to die.

As we descended to the Kansas City runway, a storm had kicked up -- I'm told this is the first real storm of summer for Kansas City -- you could see nasty lightning off in the distance, rain and wind slammed into the plane, and our flight dropped rapidly, careening sideways in the gusts of the storm. I really thought I was going to die.

So did the other 110 people on board my flight.

This is my story of what it's like to be on a plane when you think you're going to die.
