FDH Lounge Show #113: August 4, 2010

By Rick Morris

THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT on proves for the umpteenth time yet again this week that "nothing is off-topic" on "The Great American Radio Show on Internet TV."

We lead as always with The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and our look at This Week in The FDH Lounge before getting into a full range of topics with The Dignitaries. Don't believe us? The Ground Zero mosque controversy, the FDH 10 Best Shows Currently on TV (with the list and video samples to be posted here just prior to the segment) and the winners and losers of MLB's trading deadline all take place in the first half of the program alone.

From that point forward, at the bottom of Hour Two, we resume last episode's 2010 NCAA football breakdown. On that show, Charter Dignitary Nate Noy dropped a bombshell: his research indicated that absent many upsets by the teams that Boise State plays this week (thereby building up their strength-of-schedule ratings), the blue turf team is poised to be shut out of the national championship game this year even if they are the only undefeated team -- because the computer numbers will sufficiently offset the poll numbers in the BCS formula. We dig further this week, taking a look at the biggest intersectional games of the year, what Vegas is telling us based on game odds already established and the consequences of the game of "musical chairs/conferences" that is only on pause, realistically. Oh, and speaking of football, The Dignitaries have got a little something waiting for them.

That takes us all the way up to our final segment, the "show-within-a-show" THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER as we review FANTASY FOOTBALL DRAFTOLOGY 2010, a joint effort of your favorite 21st Century Media Alliance entities – with the fantasy content powered by your pals at, of course! The mock draft in that guide provides a perfect base for looking ahead to next week's special episode, which is completely given over to our annual mock draft show. We'll hit all the high points to get you ready for your draft or auction.

As always, we urge you to watch the show live (or listen if you’re on dial-up), but if you can’t catch this as it’s happening, you can always catch the FDH archives 24-7 right here or catch us now on iTunes. Also, you can now catch THE FDH LOUNGE VAULT, a compilation of our best interviews and roundtables, now every weeknight from 6-7 PM, also on
