We made it, you guys. Not only was a start date announced for college basketball but we also made it to the top of our list. The 5 greatest college basketball programs in all the land. Tough to argue these to be honest. We also welcome to the program for the first time, Rachael Pancakes to discuss her alma mater’s place on this list. TICH mascot, Cashew, keeps barking her head off in the background and we finish it up with Where Am I? and Hugs. Get ready, gang. We’re gonna be coming to you weekly starting next episode!
Rich (@Watchu__Mead) and Mason (@barnburnerslim) chop it up following AD’s game winner over the Nuggets. They hit on Joe Cowley not voting Ja Morant for ROTY, and his piss poor reasoning. They also talk about the Conference Finals matchups and update their series predictions.
Though it wasn’t the cleanest victory ever, the Titans came out on top Monday night vs the Denver Broncos with Derrick Henry leading the way and Gostkowski struggling early on.
The crew gets together to discuss the Elite Eight of the NBA, take a look ahead to the Conference Finals, and talk about the Grizzlies new assistant coaches.
We’ve reached the top 10, the creme de la creme (nice rhyme *Al Sharpton in Mr. Deeds*). The heavy hitters are officially here and some of their stats are wild. We’re talking double digit final 4 appearances and numerous tournament berths. We’re also joined by great friend of the program, Andrew Moynihan, to discuss his alma mater and their place on our list. We got some audible contributions from our work emails and our dogs as well. Sometimes we gotta take you behind the curtain and give you the raw, uncut view. To quote Ashley Schaffer: “Let the boy watch.” Finally we round it out with Last Four In, First Four Out and pay homage to two College Basketball giants in Lute Olson and John Thompson.
Sam and Zak discuss the conference semifinal matchups. Zak plays a Nuggets fan and tries to convince Sam to get excited about them. Are the Rockets more than moneyball? The guys shame the single voter who dared to go against Ja.
The inevitable was finally announced on Thursday, when the NBA released the vote totals for a particular prestigious award. Ja Morant, the Memphis Grizzlies point
Sam discusses social justice and the historic week in the NBA. Why are supposed Grizzlies fan blogs trying to trade away Jaren? This is why we can’t have nice things! Lastly, Subbi from TICH joins Sam to talk all things playoffs.
The Backdoor Cut crew gets together in full force to discuss their weekends, Luka’s insane Playoff performances and the Mavs/Clippers series. They then discuss some potential pathways forward for the Grizzlies, including Sam’s favorite potential trade targets and other possibilities. The show is wrapped up by reviewing the 1st round of the NBA Playoffs and a slight look ahead.
It’s officially the off-season for the Memphis Grizzlies. There is no better time to over analyze everything about the current roster and hypothesize about potential upgrades. For the first installment in this series of deep-dives, I take a closer look at the most polarizing character on the Grizzlies roster – Dillon Brooks.
