Outspoken former San Diego State and NFL star Kyle Turley guested on the Scott and B.R. Show on XX 1090 in San Diego this week to talk about the departure of Aztec football coach Brady Hoke to Michigan.

Combine one of my favorite radio shows, as the Scott Kaplan & Billy Ray Smith production has been for many years, with one of the few sports personalities who’ll unmute my ‘puter for more than a couple-six seconds and, welp … let’s just say that’s when the magic happens.
I can attest that the entire interview is a verifiable treasure already worthy enshrinement into the pantheon of great radio moments like Orson Welles‘ 1938 War of the Worlds broadcast, Russ Hodges’ “The Giants win the Pennant! The Giants win the Pennant!” call in 1951, and the complete archive of David Lee Roth’s New York morning shows following his ascension into Howard Stern’s terrestrial radio timeslot. (Both weeks.)
Enough gush, some snipped clips:
Well, who *hasn’t* lied about their age every once in a while?
• Kyle Turley politely disagrees with Robert Smith over the NFL’s handling of players’ disability.
• Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland may have absentmindedly muttered out Miami’s choice for 1st pick.
• Nick Saban continues to demonstrate the charming rapport he has with the media.
• Jim Boylan has been officially bumped off the Bulls’ payroll. Bet he feels like Aaron Gray did.

Good to see Kyle Turley is still his same ol’ fiery self. The ex-Saint, ex-Ram & ex-Chief best known for his Jets helmet toss was on Dan Le Batard’s radio show on Wednesday, talking about the problems many former NFL players are having trying to get disability benefits.
Joining Turley in the discussion was ex-Viking Robert Smith, putting the point forward for the NFL Players’ Association. And what started out as a calm debate eventually turned a bit nasty.
