Chicago Sports HQ Podcast: Cubs future talk, Tony La Russa, Bears, CFB matchups, more


by - Senior Editor -

Today on Chicago Sports HQ chatter, senior writer Cole Little and I lead things off with the White Sox and what the hiring or Tony La Russa means for the team this year and in the long run.

Will they be able to attract more big-name free agents like George Springer and or James Paxton?

The Cubs are entering a major transition year, not just as a franchise, but as a front office. What does Theo Epstein have in mind for the team's future, and how does he go about setting things up for who's next.

Football is clearly the primary sport going on at this point, so we breakdown what is happening in the Windy City with the Bears right now.

What needs to change, and how can they get back to their winning ways?

Speaking of football, every major college conference will be underway after this weekend. Northwestern is off to a 2-0 start and could find themselves in the BIG title game, Notre Dame is preparing for the big one against Clemson this weekend while Illinois and Northern Illinois struggle to find their footing.

With decision day set for Sunday, Cole and I discuss the Fire's missed opportunity Wednesday but talk about how they can hold onto the final playoff spot for the season.

We wrap up the show talking about the Bulls and Billy Donovan's new staff as well as the Blackhawks having to choose who to protect in this year's Expansion Draft.
