DougMatthews-UpdatedForklift Systems Sports Saturday with Doug Mathews
(Saturday 9:00am-11:00am)

Not many analysts in the midsouth have as much football expertise as Doug Mathews brings to the microphone every Saturday morning. It’s Forklift System’s Sports Saturday on 104-5 The Zone.

Mathews, best known for his 10 seasons as Running Backs Coach and Defensive Coordinator for the University of Tennessee, tells it like it is and lets you take show where you want go every weekend.

Forklift Systems Sports Saturday covers all the big games across the nation, including all the action within the Southeastern Conference. It’s the perfect preview before you catch your favorite team play Saturday afternoon.
 
And Coach Mathews does that with the best guests in the region:

Tony Barnhart – well known for his coverage of the SEC in the Atlanta Journal Constitution
Charles Davis – Former Tennessee Volunteer and now Big Ten Network and NFL Network analyst
Bobby Proctor – Former coach for University of Oklahoma and Big 12 analyst


Doug’s Background:

Mathews credited Bear Bryant and Bud Wilkinson as coaches who influenced the way he coached his players during the years he worked inside the game, but no one had as much of an effect as Virginia Tech head coach Bill Dooley. Mathews says Dooley furnished him with his first opportunity as an offensive coach and provided him with valuable information within the I-formation offense.

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – January 27, 2020) EPISODE 4: QUE VIERE EL COCO The Outsider is compelling. It’s a very good show. Usually when you read a sentence like that, there’s a “but” in the vicinity. Nope. I’m enjoying it. I thought it fitting to write bluntly and in quick strike fashion, matching Holly…
