Plenty to discuss for Brian and Lisa this week as they tackle Peyton Manning's recent troubles, a new athletic director for the University of Illinois, and a rivalry between two Eastern European teenagers who were barely five feet tall.  Come on aboard!

Here's Deadspin's take on the sexual assault allegations against Peyton Manning: http://deadspin.com/how-tennessee-s-sexual-harassment-allegations-caught-up-1759118435

And a more skeptical take from Bleacher Report: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2617133-peyton-manning-sexual-assault-and-a-little-healthy-skepticism

Listen to Josh Whitman's introductory news conference, and an interview he did with Illinois Public Media's Jeff Bossert afterward (the day after we recorded this podcast): https://will.illinois.edu/news/story/josh-whitman-introduced-as-u-of-i-athletic-director

Finally, gymnastics!  Some nice highlights of Olga Korbut (embedding was disabled for these videos): https://youtu.be/c2NGqI6FqeQ

And Nadia Comaneci: https://youtu.be/Yi_5xbd5xdE

Finally, a picture says a thousand words:
