Legendary Notre Dame alum and 1987 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Brown joined the show this week. The first wide receiver in college football history to win the Heisman has a new book out, The Making of a Man, and is on a nationwide book tour promoting it. He’ll be in Oakland this weekend to sign for his loyal Raider fans and be a special guest at the team’s home game.
We got Touchdown Timmy’s insight on the current Notre Dame receiver crop and he even shared his opinion on the reshuffling of the Notre Dame offensive line. Perhaps his most memorable quote came regarding the Irish defense. When asked if the unit had surprised him, he responded “No they haven’t surprised me … They’ve SHOCKED me!” All around great stuff from one of the game’s greatest ever.
Notre Dame Class of 1987 got some more attention on the show with Newsweek’s John Walters calling in to share his thoughts on the season, college football’s wild weekend, the new comedy show Mulaney, and ESPN’s Seth Davis and his career in New York City stand-up comedy. (No, seriously.)
