Glenn Clark Radio August 12, 2020 (Eduardo Perez, Ralph Friedgen, Jenny Vrentas, Tom Dienhart)

Glenn Clark Radio

Lots of talk about the Orioles' wild game last night and Big Ten football officially being cancelled today. Plus it's #WouldYouRatherWednesday-brought to you by Glory Days Grill. Would you rather the conferences still scheduled to play go ahead and play OR we just bag college football in favor of three more NFL TV windows on Saturdays? Early in the show, ESPN analyst Eduardo Perez checked in before he calls Orioles/Phillies tomorrow. How does he explain the Orioles' solid start? Should it change decisions they'd make at the trade deadline? At the bottom of Hour 1, longtime Big Ten reporter Tom Dienhart checked in to discuss the possibility of players departing, whether spring football is even a reasonable hope and more. Early in Hour 2, SI's Jenny Vrentas joined us to discuss her digital cover story on Lamar Jackson and the impact he's having on views of what a quarterback is. At the bottom of Hour 2, former Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen checked in to discuss the college football issue and why he feels the Big Ten may have made the right decision.

EP 24: Jenny Vrentas, Sports Illustrated

Talking Buffalo Podcast

On this episode of the Moran-Alytics Podcast Patrick Moran is joined by Sports Illustrated and MMQB senior writer Jenny Vrentas. One of the best sports writers in the business today male or female, Jenny takes us through her journey, one that actually began as a Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major at Penn State College before deciding she wanted to venture into sports writing and ultimately going to the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. She went on to land a job at the Newark Star Ledger in 2007, a position she’d hold for six years as she eventually became a beat writer for the New York Jets and Giants. Her career shifted in 2013 when Peter King essentially handpicked her to join the MMQB writing team at Sports Illustrated.  Vrentas talks in detail about that process and gets emotional when discussing King’s upcoming departure after 29-years at Sports Illustrated. She also gives her opinion on the life of a reporter in the New York city market, goes into the unfair disadvantages women often have in the sports journalism workplace and discusses a few of the incredible stories she’s written in recent years. All that and much more with one of the best and most likable sports writers in the business!
