Well boys and girls, 2011 is almost in the books and I closed out the SILVERMAN: On Sports year with a fantastic show for you! Mike Wallace of ESPN joined us early to discuss the NBA, the Miami Heat and the lockout. This is going to be a wild and wacky year in the NBA.

Following Mike, Ari Russell, editor of BeyondUSports.com joined me to run the table on college football from Penn State to the bowl games and everything in between. Ari picked LSU to win the National Title and I agree with him! At the end of the segment with Ari, he made the major announcement that I will be writing a weekly column for BeyondUSports every Wednesday entitled, “Saving Silverman” and I am very excited about it.

I finished the show with FIU Head Football Coach Mario Cristobal and as usual, he was a fantastic guest. Honest, upfront and hard charging. Qualities that have made his Golden Panthers a better program every year he has been leading the program.
