Introduction: We are days away from knowing which direction the Vikings are headed at quarterback. Conventional wisdom has shifted in recent days to him leaving — likely to Atlanta — but host Michael Rand takes a different approach during this unknown time. He talks about how the decision to keep or let go of Cousins will impact Vikings decisionmakers, potentially shifting more of the burden to Kevin O'Connell if Cousins is gone. Plus two big games for Gophers basketball teams on Wednesday.
