The crew from 97.1 The Fan tackles the week's biggest sports questions.

Scott Torgerson Mike Ricordati Milan Jordan Ted Holbrook Megan the Fan Girl Did the Big Ten improve its reputation with this year's bowl performances? Yes, they won their biggest three bowl games. No one remembers Minnesota or Northwestern losing, but Penn State, Wisconsin, Iowa and the Buckeyes did their jobs. I think so. But it's not worth anything if they don't back it up next season. Yes, a winning bowl record that includes two wins in BCS games helps the national perception. Yes, and it will show in the 2010 preseason polls with three Big Ten teams in the top 10. Clearly! What was the biggest surprise of this weekend's NFL playoffs? How bad Carson Palmer played. The Bengals. Carson Palmer still can't throw. That Baltimore scored so many points right out of the gate, putting the Patriots out of their misery before they knew what hit 'em. How poorly the Bengals and Patriots played. Give a little effort! The Patriots getting trounced at home. What's Mike Holmgren's biggest challenge in turning around the Browns? Getting better talent. Brady Quinn is bad. Until the quarterback situation is addressed, the Browns will continue to stink. Moving away the black cloud that seems to hover over all Cleveland sports teams. Finding a good quarterback to run the offense and win some games. It's a team with no talent, especially if he lets Cribbs get away. What's your theme song for 2010? I already have one. Don't you listen to 97.1 The Fan from 3 to 6 p.m.? Cher, "If I Could Turn Back Time" My life in a nutshell could be summed up best with the theme from The Benny Hill Show. Muse, "Uprising." We will be victorious! How about "White Wedding" by Billy Idol, since I just got engaged!
