Just days after the NCAA Division III men’s basketball championship concluded, Noontime Sports the Podcast host Matt Noonan caught-up with Babson College play-by-play broadcaster John Cabral to discuss and highlight the Beavers’ (men’s basketball) first-ever national championship.

Cabral and Noonan recap a pair of exciting contests, and yes, slowly look ahead (at the end of the podcast) to what teams could be in the mix for a title-run next season.

Noontime Sports The Podcast: Episode 18 (Andy Mahoney | BostonGlobe.com Sports Producer)

In anticipation of this upcoming weekend’s Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons, Noontime Sports the Podcast featured some quality pigskin chatter between host Matt Noonan and Andy Mahoney, who is the sports producer for BostonGlobe.com.

Mahoney gave his ‘two-cents’ on the Patriots-Falcons matchup, why there hasn’t been too much news (or noise) from the so-called ‘media week,’ while giving some thought to where New England would stand in Boston sports history if they earn a fifth championship.

Would they be better than the early 20th century Boston Red Sox or the Celtics of the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s – let’s also not forget about the Green and White of 2008, too.

Either way, get pumped (or excited) for this weekend’s big game with a fun pre-Super Bowl podcast, while following Mahoney (@GlobeMahoney) and the Boston Globe Sports section (@BGlobeSports) on Twitter.
