Bill O'Reilly Obama Interview

Bill O'Reilly Obama Interview - Political junkies will have some action to look forward to before this year's Super Bowl contenders take the field.

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly is going to interview President Obama as part of Fox's Super Bowl pregame show. It's a huge get for O'Reilly, who hosts the top-rated show on cable news. And for Obama, it's a chance to reach a large audience tuned in to the hours of pregame coverage.

But the sit-down is still surprising given the occasionally contentious relationship between the White House and the Rupert Murdoch-owned network, home to top conservative hosts like Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck. At times, things have gotten very tense.

Some top aides publicly bashed Fox News, with the president even putting on his media-critic hat to weigh in.

"I've got one television station that is entirely devoted to attacking my administration," Obama said on CNBC in 2009. More recently, Obama described Fox News as "destructive" for the country's growth.

Still, Obama — and other administration officials — have sat down for numerous interviews on Fox News.

Obama last appeared on O'Reilly's show near the end of the 2008 presidential campaign. Although Obama's a sports fanatic, it's safe to expect that O'Reilly won't only be asking about who he expect to win the game.

The Huffington Post's Sam Stein, who confirmed the news with the White House, points out that it's not unprecedented for the commander-in-chief to do an interview before the Super Bowl. Last year, Katie Couric interviewed Obama before the game broadcast on CBS.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
