Clark Judge joined Nolan and Matt to discuss the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. The guys first take a look at the Saturday matchups with Clark, including why Seattle has such an advantage at home recently and why the rematch with the Seahawks was such a tough draw for the Saints, even after getting the road win last week in Philly.

The founder of One on One, and currently the director of the National Sports Journalism Center, Malcolm Moran, joined myself and Bobby Gubin on the show. We discussed the 100th Rose Bowl game and Moran's new book "The Rose Bowl: 100th Celebration."

We also delved into some of the issues surrounding college football today such as the end of the BCS and how those involved with structuring the new playoff system will do so. In addition, we asked Malcolm about his thoughts on the upcoming national championship game between Florida State and Georgia.

Fordham head basketball coach Tom Pecora joined me in his weekly spot on One on One to talk all things Fordham hoops. The Rams are 7-6 heading into conference play, and coach talked about how disappointing the last two games (an eight point loss to Harvard at home and a ten point loss to Siena on the road) have been. We also looked back on the non-conference portion of the schedule.

Coach Pecora will be on One on One every Saturday throughout conference play.
