There have been a lot of crazy stories going on in the sports world recently with the assaulting coaching habits of Mike Rice Jr. at Rutgers, and the rumors of academic dishonesty circulating at Auburn. But it’s not all bad in sports right now. This weekend, the best of best in golf face off in the best tournament of the year, the Masters. And we had a special guest on the show Wednesday to preview the great event and to discuss all these crazy sports stories. Of course I’m talking about our very special Masters correspondent, SEC Guy.

Rick Patino became the first man to win a National Championship at two different schools with Louisville’s victory over Michigan in the 2013 National Championship.
Backup swingman Luke Hancock led the way for the Cardinals with 22 points and three assists. Peyton Siva had a great all-around game with 18 points, six rebounds, five assists and four steals for the Cardinals. And Chane Behanan put together a double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds.
For the Wolverines, Wooden award winner Trey Burke had 24 points and four assists. And his backup, Spike Albrecht, had a career game with 17 points going four for five from three-point range. Glenn Robinson III and Tim Hardaway Jr. each chipped in with 12 points apiece.
It was one of the most hard-fought, well-played and exciting performances we have seen in a National Championship Game matchup that we have seen in recent memory.

Bill Romanowski played in the NFL for 16 years with the Denver Broncos, San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles and Oakland Raiders. He joined Chad on Flight 750 Thursday to talk about his time in the league.
Romanowski said that of all the people he played with or played under, no one had a greater impact on him than the great Bill Walsh.
“I remember our first meeting, Bill Walsh brought us in right before training camp and he basically said ‘Men, we have one goal and one goal only. And that is to win a world championship. Look around you. You’re going to see some of the greatest football players that have ever played in the NFL.” And as I looked to my right, there’s Jerry Rice. To my left, there’s Ronnie Lott. Behind me is Joe Montana and I’m like “This is a dream come true’.”
He also says that John Elway was among the greatest teammates he ever had in all his years playing football.
“He was the ultimate teammate. And he was a warrior. And at 37 years of age, he was there pounding weights with us in the offseason. And you would see him during the season in the weight room. And the way he addressed practice…he was a pro.”
Although Elway was amongst the best teammates that he ever had, he’s not the greatest quarterback that he ever had the pleasure to play with.
“Montana has four Super Bowls. John Elway had two.”
And although he retired from the league in 2003, Romanowski said that he is still learning things about himself every day.
“A lot of people say I was mean and nasty and a warrior out on the field and what I learned through a lot of the therapy was that I was just more scared than any of the other guys, and I didn’t want to lose my job.”
