First, a programing note: due to the early kickoff for Arkansas v. Ole Miss (11:21), we will be going on air an hour early. The show will start at 8:00 instead of our normal 9:00 time slot. Make sure you set your alarm clock accordingly, because you won’t want to miss what we’ve got in store this week!


Obviously, the topic on everyone’s mind is “what (if anything) is wrong with the Grizzlies?” We’re going to discuss whether it is time to panic, look at the potential cause of the 2-3 start and offer some solutions that may right the ship. We want to hear from #GrizzNation tomorrow, so make sure to give us a call at (901)360-8255 and tell us whether you are ready to panic and how you would fix things.

We’ve also got two great guests lined up:

First, we will be joined by the (fake) owner of the Memphis Grizzlies, @FakeRobertPera! FRP has finally gotten approval from his legal team and will  be joining us to talk about his thoughts on the team so far, the WiFi at FedExForum and more.

Next, we will be talking with Joey Thorsen (aka @MemphisKingJoey), the Memphis Grizzlies’ Coordinator of Event Presentations and in-game emcee. Joey is going to join us to talk about what goes into putting on the show during Grizzlies’ games, what #GrizzNation can look forward to at games this season and hopefully explain some of the videos on his YouTube channel.

As always, we’re going to take a look at the Grizzlies performances this week in their games against Dallas, Boston and New Orleans, and we will preview next week’s game against Golden State, Indiana, Toronto (the return of Rudy Gay!) and the Los Angeles Lakers (the return of Kobe Bryant?).

Since we’re being rescheduled due to Ole Miss coverage on Sports56, we are going to take advantage of the empty studio at 9:00 and will be recording an extra 20-30 minutes that will be made available exclusively as part of the podcast on Even if you get a chance to listen live, you’re going to want to check out later in the day for the “extended director’s cut” of the show! Spoiler alert: there might be curse words.

Remember! We will be on-air live **AN HOUR EARLY** at 8:00am (Central) on Sports56WHBQ (FM 87.7/AM 560). If you don’t have access to a radio, you can always listen live on or on the Sports56WHBQ app for your iPhone or Android device. If for some reason you can’t listen live, we will post the audio as a podcast here on, including the extended director’s cut!

Until tomorrow…

Grind on, Memphis!
