Dan Dakich told a pair of off-color jokes at 93.5/107.5 The Fan’s “A Night in the Fan Cave” event last month at the Indiana Historical Society, according to reporting from Gregg Doyel at the Indianapolis Star.

Officials from Urban One, who recently entered into an agreement to purchase 93.5/107.5 The Fan as well as other Indianapolis radio stations from Emmis Communications, were in attendance.

According to Doyel, Urban One representatives were “mortified” by the “tasteless” jokes, while Emmis leaders asked employees to remain quiet about the situation.

Urban One is the largest distributor of urban content in the United States. According to their company website they “represent black culture” boldly, courageously, and unapologetically.

Doyel, a former friend of Dakich’s, spoke on the two’s friendship and his disappointment in seeing Dakich become a “caricature he created and has become”.

“For months Dakich has been revealing his true character, one episode at a time,” Doyel writes.

“So insightful about basketball and the inner workings of a team, he now fancies himself a political talking head, adding a second daily show on a right-wing radio station that specializes in conspiracy theories, half-truths, outright lies and hate. His handful of supporters tell Dakich he’s wise, and he believes it.”

Though there’s still some time before a finished products reaches bookshelves, but ESPN’s Paul Finebaum is reportedly set to get a nice six-figure advance by Penguin Press.

According to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, Finebaum will make $700,000 plus royalties for the deep dive into the rivalry between the two SEC head coaches.

Back in the spring things came to a head between Alabama’s Nick Saban and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, as the two engaged in a verbal spat in separate press conferences over name, image and likeness.

Saban said Fisher and his staff utilized NIL and “bought every player” in the Aggies’ spring 2022 recruiting class.

Things got so heated and drew so many headlines that SEC commissioner Greg Sankey had to step in and try to get the former colleagues to cool it.

Finebaum is teaming up with Alabama beat reporter John Talty to write the book.

For the second year in a row, Ryan Kramer will draft 24 different teams over the course of a 24 hour marathon that will be streamed across multiple video platforms. 

“Fortunately, the analytics research is done so I can focus now on news coming out of the camps to sharpen my views and deliver the well-reasoned selections that people need to get an edge in their drafting,” Kramer said in a press release. “It’s a bit of an audacious undertaking, but the growing phenomenon of Fantasy Football deserves this level of commitment and our SGPN audiences always respond.” 

The event begins at 3 pm on Tuesday and is dubbed “Draft Day 2.0”. All of the content will originate from the Sports Gambling Podcast Network’s studios in Los Angeles. 

The marathon will also be a fundraiser. The network is using GoFundMe to raise funds for a colleague named Darryl injured in a motorcycle accident earlier this year. A portion of proceeds generated from the sale of Sports Gambling Podcast Network branded apperal will also go to the effort.
