Then soon as he got him on the air, he couldn't wait to get rid of him and get to the next caller. He never seemed to care about who he was talking to at the time, it was just about who's next.
    Yep, that's definitely Al. He's been mailing it in for years. "Call and we'll talk immediately, if not soonah!"


    My morning show (especially during football season) is Toby on KREF. Then I listen to Teddy on the drive home and when he goes to commercial I'll switch it over to Sam Mayes unless they're doing some stupid game like bang or bust or some such. I'd like it if they just left Sam alone and let him talk about whatever he wants for 3 or 4 hours. I'd listen to that. I don't wanna hear the little whiny guy that's with him and don't care what he says and the stupid games they play with audience tweets or texts are mind numbingly horrible.
    I agree, Sam is great. I actually like Colby Daniels. Sam and him have good chemistry. The good thing about Bang or Bust are fans constantly finding ways to include OSU's claim of the 45 National Title. It really get's under Sam's skin. Lol.

      Carrying a 4 hour afternoon drive show on your own, day in and day out, is extremely difficult. Pokej and I have been trying for years to get you guys to start podcasting or streaming The Ticket.

      They are the #1 sports talk station in America, and each of their shows has multiple on-air contributors. Every show has two hosts, and the producers are allowed chime in regularly, so you have 3-4 guys contributing on each show.

      And yes, they are a Dallas station, but they talk OU and the Big-12 a lot. They talk OU more than any of the Texas college teams. Switzer is a regular, and they just got Bob Stoops hooked up.

        I think Sam has a lot of interesting stuff to say and talk about but he gets interrupted a lot by that idiot with him and until recently the stupid girl. If Sam needs someone to help carry the show then it should be someone who's not annoying and has good content to add. And they need to do away with all the silliness.

        I typically don't like shows that have a lot of guys in the studio because it tends to devolve into them talking over each other and making stupid jokes and laughing at stupid stuff. One guy will start to say something interesting and then another will talk over him with something stupid and then they've all got to service that comment and make their own lame jokes and laugh to where it just becomes a lot of filler. I like actual content. And they don't realize that them all talking at the same time is difficult to decipher by the listener because they're all in the same room together and can hear what's being said.

        I've given The Ticket a listen on podcast before and thought it was good. I don't care that they're in Dallas as long as they have good content. It's just so much easier (lazier) to punch a button on my car than to download a podcast each time to listen to.

          Agree to disagree... While I like Roughace, he didn't bring near the amount to the show that Eddie brings.. & Jesse isn't on air enough to be annoying... Like I said earlier, Steely is the captain of the ship, without him, it's a bit of a train wreck... That's probably where Geoff would be more valuable, hosting, I'd take him over Colby Daniels every single day & twice in Sunday... Can't stand Colby's squeaky little voice...

            Colby Daniels is the Sam Mayes sidekick, right? I think I must be the only guy that likes him. I actually think he does a good to great job on there but I appear to definitely be in the minority on that.

              I think he does alright. Glad that Cara Rice is gone though.

                So if I heard them right, they had Daniel's on as a guest after 5 to apparently argue with Mayes about Paul George. If that's Colby Daniels, I've heard him before and him I don't like.....he always takes a breath in the middle of his sentence or something weird.

                  My favorite part of having Eddie on the franchise morning show, is how he pokes at Gilman, nonstop.. Just like this morning's segment on Trae Young...

                    I don't know why, but I feel compelled to tell you all that you should tune in from 10-12 on Saturdays and listen to the Franchise Thunder Insider's Show.

                    Of course, this Saturday it's off because of OU basketball. But ya know, for future reference.

                      Pretty regular listener here. It's good stuff. Especially when messing around in the garage or something on a lazy Saturday morning.

                        Sam is definitely worth the listen, and I think he adds a lot of depth to nearly any conversation...

                            Only if the show has a lot of giggling by the hosts. I love the constant giggling!!

                              That's not Daniels--that's Powell. Colby Daniels is the host of the show w/Sam--he's the guy whose basic job is to keep Sam somewhat focused. Colby Powell is the one that said 0% chance PG wins the MVP.

                                I'd much prefer a show where nobody laughs, and everyone sounds miserable.

                                  Only those two options for you? You might want to broaden what you listen to.

                                  Hang on to your hat, but there are shows that are fun without laughing at their own jokes and constant silly games. Weird... I know.

                                      I'm of the same opinion as you, Colby does a good job. I'm not sure of his athletic background, but he's insightful as anyone posting in DB's sports forums.

                                        You should check out his pod too. The OKC-82 Podcast is a good listen--mostly b/c of Madysson, but Hero doesn't muck it up too much.

                                          I've been up listening to them well past midnight a few times after these big wins the last month or so.

                                            Geoff Roughface died of a heart attack today. He tweeted 5 hours ago. I think he was on the Franchise but I know him from twitter. I went to OU with him. Good dude, he will be missed by many.

                                              Just saw Steely tweet about it. Damn that’s way too young.

                                              I really enjoyed him on the morning show before they let him go to bring in Eddie.

                                              29. That’s just awful.

                                                  I spoke with him several times in person.... always had a beer in hand... he was always polite with a good sense of humor.
                                                  He had a great dog.

                                                    When I would listen to the morning show (rare because I don't care for Gellman or whatever his name is) I always thought Roughface seemed like a decent dude. How old was he? Was he overweight or unhealthy?

                                                      He was a big guy but nothing like you would expect to kill a guy that young. Must have been something genetic or wrong with his heart other than his weight.

Should be a fun day especially when he get's tired of being ripped and starts fighting back, because he will get sick of it eventually today..
