- MORE: Growing up in Chicago talk radio was huge. Let’s face it, the teams were rarely competitive so the conversations about sports, life, politics, etc. provided a compelling escape. From an early age I wanted to be involved in radio – I just need the sports-talk forum to be created. To me, the “CBS EYE” is one of the most iconic symbols in America and to have the privilege to work for CBS Radio in the nations sixth-largest market – and best place to raise a family (the “Livable Forest” of Kingwood) is truly a dream come true. I am well aware of how fortunate I am.

At the current pace, Foster will finish 2014 with 440 carries, that would be 89 more than Arian had in 2012 when he led the league in carries with 351, or 24 more than the NFL record of 416 by the Chiefs Larry Johnson in ’06.
When I asked if I could use his toaster oven to heat up my “hot-pocket,” he was gracious and said sure, if you have one.
Right now, the three players kicked off the team before the BYU game made for better headlines than the completely embarrassing 41-7 loss in Austin Saturday night.
Texans head coach Bill O’Brien, said at his press conference today that, “Penn State was a special place and that he felt best for the players and coaching staff now in place.”
