Despite having been blogging and podding about the NBA for the past 3+ years, I have never made time to really dive in and do the homework required to create a personal draft big board. Consider this version 1.0.
No guest today unfortunately and no Taylor either so it’s just Subbi and The Shark bantering about quite literally nothing. We talk everything from Slack to Family Karma to the statue standard at UMass. We also finally get around to discussing the Coach K and Roy Williams departures and offer our thoughts on their successors. Then we do our own version of “Who He Play For” as it pertains to all of the transfers that have taken place since we last gave you an update. Finally, we wouldn’t be as absurd as we are if we didn’t give a Family Karma college basketball comparison. Be good.
While the majority of the Grizzlies bench has struggled in the playoff series vs Utah, there is one player who we should expect to see more often once we get to tip-off in the bluff city.
Do you like the Metropolitan area? Do you like Boston College? Listen to this episode then because we chat with our good pal, MMA, and discuss everything from Knicks, Nets, Devils, Rangers, Islanders, Mets and his beloved BC Eagles. We first talk about the Jim Christian era and harken back to the Steve Donahue era as well. But fear not, after we talk about those train wrecks we focus our attention on Earl Grant. Nope, not the pianist but the head coach. Also sincere hug to Mary Annes in Brighton, MA. It closed down but was an absolute ESTABLISHMENT to the BC students.
First episode of the offseason so we had to welcome back our best friend of the program: Auburn coach, Mike Burgomaster. We talk everything from last year’s season, the transfer portal, the future of the team and Terrence Clarke. Listen to this episode before you become a slug all weekend watching the NFL draft.
If we’re being honest with each other the Elite 8 games kinda stunk with the exception of UCLA/Michigan. Hell UCLA might’ve played the two best games of the tournament and they won. Their prize? Gonzaga. Then we look at the other side of the bracket with the Lone Star Shootout as Baylor and Houston are set to square off. The Final 4 is upon us ladies and gents!
TICH’s 100th episode and we’ve never felt worse. That’s because we’re down in the dumps post first weekend. Hurt, hungover, tired and bloated but what a first weekend it was. We discuss PAC 12 dominance, Big Ten disappointment, the “OSU” theory and of course the Cinderellas. We also demand apologies from certain programs while also taking ownership and apologizing to other programs. Then we finish it off with a Hug.
Last show before we tip off in Indy. It bears repeating but I want you all to cherish this moment. Cherish this bracket. Cherish these players. Cherish these venues. Cherish Greg Gumbel kicking it back to Spero Dedes after an update. Just cherish it all. We deliver you our official TICH bracket predictions. Fair warning- this does not mean we’ve chosen these in our personal brackets. To take it a step further, we might even be playing you in order to get a competitive edge if you’re in our bracket. Regardless, enjoy the picks. Ride with us, fade us. It’s all beautiful. Enjoy March Madness folks. You deserve it!
The Memphis Grizzlies returned from the All-Star break with a convincing win over Washington, followed by a disappointing last-second loss to Denver, and a Sunday Stinker Special. Despite the 1-2 week, reasons to be optimistic remain aplenty!
Selection Sunday is finally here. Take a listen to our live reactions!
