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!
Selection Sunday is finally here. Take a listen to our live reactions!
Welcome to postseason TICH. We’re back with our Jerome Week 2 picks as we break down the power Conferences as well as the MEAC (one of the worst conferences in America). We also continue to go back to our TICH roots as it’s just Subbi & The Shark. Then we bring back Friday Bracketology, TWIT and got a lil something extra for ya come next Monday. Next time you hear from us the Holy Day will have come and gone. Selection Sunday is mere days away. Enjoy the conference tourney theat.
It’s been long. It’s been arduous. It’s been fatiguing. It’s been sad. It’s been grotesque. But we made it. A year after the rug was SNATCHED out from under us we’ve made it to March. Our month and don’t you ever forget that. We discuss Rothstein’s countdown to March and this past weekend. Specifically how unbelievable Cade Cunningham really is despite having all of the expectations on him. Then we talk about our favorite precursor to the tournament: The Jerome! We leak a few tidbits that you can only get from the TICH guys. Then of course we deliver you some winners and finish it up with TWIT & Hugs. Again, rejoice all. We’ve made it to March!
As we inch closer and closer to Selection Sunday we’re starting to see some of the blue bloods round into form. Duke is on a 4 game winning streak, Kansas is hot, Michigan State has been piecing some wins together and Michigan looks more and more like a title contender. We talk about these teams as well as the job Juwan Howard has done at his alma mater. Then we deliver this PSA: Conference Tourneys start Thursday! Wake up! Then we take a trip down memory lane as we reminisce on Bobby Knight’s flawless chair toss and give out some Hugs.
BIG episode today as the TICH boys interview the 2007 SEC Player Of The Year and one of the greatest college hoopers ever, Chris Lofton. We talk everything from his recruiting, to his overseas career to his victorious battle with cancer. We also talk about Jim Christian getting fired and The Shark is finally liberated. For some reason he wants Bobby Hurley in Chestnut Hill though. Very odd. Then we discuss Jalen Johnson opting out and how the media has responded. As usual we finish it off with Hugs.
Super Bowl is over. Football is over. The sporting world now turns their attention to college hoops. We’re only about 5 weeks away from The Holy Day aka Selection Sunday so we briefly look back on the week that was. We also had Barstool’s Big Man On Campus, Jeff Nadu to talk everything from teams he likes, The Wire and his weight loss journey. It’s Team Nadu around these parts. Then we finish up with 3 segments: Please Sir, I Want Some More followed by TWIT followed by Hugs.
Don’t look now but we’re only a month away from March. Subbi has one more week left of his Whole 30 diet while the Shark has ripped the band aid off of his diet. We talk Waste Mangement Open, new Covid protocols for the tournament and Oklahoma’s hot streak. We then pivot to the greatest rivalry in all of sports: Duke/UNC. Both of these teams stink, they lost to inferior opponents, the players are bad… yet we’re all still pavloving for the matchup. We then ask how you fill out your bracket: pen/paper, online or both? We also talk about NCAA video games coming back, West Virginia’s GAUNTLET and our gambling corner. Finally we wrap it up with Where Am I? and Hugs.
