The Battle For The Butter - Segments - Yearly


  • "Sheet of Integrity" NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Wager: See below.
  • Mike and Mike's "Two-a-Days": A 16 day preview of the upcoming National Football League season. The Mikes take a look at two of the league's 32 teams per day during which they ask the main questions which the teams might have to answer this season. This culminates with a prediction of their record for the season. Once all 32 teams have been profiled, which is timed to be a day or so before the Thursday Night Kickoff Game the Mikes then predict the Super Bowl champion.
  • Mike and Mike's Offseason "Two-a-Days": The last two seasons, after the Super Bowl, The Mikes did a similar exercise, in draft order (if a team traded their first pick, they were still profiled in the position determined by their order of finish), previewing the needs of each of the 32 NFL teams. In 2011, they had Russel Baxter ("The Dean", "The Guru of the ESPN Research Department") ask three specific questions about two teams a day, what their biggest need was in the draft or free agency, and whether their stock is rising or falling. (Endless abuse was heaped on Greenberg when his Jets were profiled, including that they lost the AFC Championship game again.) In 2012, the segment was revamped and streamlined to a season recap, a look at the draft needs, and a question from one of the fans of each given team.
  • V Foundation: Every year, usually on the slowest sports day of the summer (the day after Major League Baseball's All-Star Game—this was not done in 2010, the auction being held on another date, which the show did open) Mike and Mike kick off the on-air portion of ESPN Radio's annual auction to raise money for the V Foundation for Cancer Research, named for former N.C. State basketball coach and ESPN analyst Jim Valvano. They take the whole show to auction off items, such as a day with Mike and Mike, meeting them and having breakfast after the show. One item in the 2008 auction is that Mike and Mike will do their radio show from the winner's residence. One of the traditions the Mikes do on this day is that they will dedicate one segment of their program to re-air Valvano's stirring speech at the first ESPY Awards, where the motto of the V Foundation was coined: "Don't give up. Don't ever give up."

Famous quotes containing the word yearly:

    What is last year’s snow to me,
    Last year’s anything? The tree
    Budding yearly must forget
    How its past arose or set—
    Countee Cullen (1903–1946)

    ... the yearly expenses of the existing religious system ... exceed in these United States twenty millions of dollars. Twenty millions! For teaching what? Things unseen and causes unknown!... Twenty millions would more than suffice to make us wise; and alas! do they not more than suffice to make us foolish?
    Frances Wright (1795–1852)
