We’re getting into the meat of our top 50 list now as we reveal 40-36. Coach Boone’s Gettysburg speech somehow makes an early appearance, we talk West Coast Conference and take a trip down college basketball memory lane with some of these teams. We also got The Crier and Justin Haskard to pay us a visit and sling some PC vs. Rhode Island mud. The feud takes no days off, I’m afraid. Then we wrap it up with Hugs. Tell us your thoughts on our list thus far!
Need some Tigers basketball content? We’ve compiled a notebook on all of the Memphis Tiger freshmen and their peers. Was each guy properly rated compared to those in his class? You make the call.
We’re back during this god awful lockdown to bring you our greatest college basketball programs from 45-41. We welcome back our good friend, Matt Alameda, as he gives us his thoughts on the list. Without giving anything away, this list was dominated by the mid majors. We also talk more about historical venues as The Shark and Taylor are on opposite sides of the fence on one particular team. It was kind’ve like that scene in Old School where Will Ferrell and the Ragin Cajun, James Carville, debate and even though Ferrell wins, you can’t knock Carville. Then we finish it up with Where Am I? and Hugs. “Have at it, hoss.”
Over the weekend, Precious Achiuwa declared for the NBA draft and our friends over at Theater in College Hoops posed a question: where does Precious rank in your list of all-time favorite Tigers? The crew took a few days to think this over and came together to discuss their lists of favorite players (starting at the Cal era since that’s all we can truly claim to remember).
The TICH guys have spent hours crunching the numbers and checking their hearts to compile a complete list of the top 50 college basketball programs. This is the off-season content you need.
Here you will find a wide range of recruiting rumors related to the University of Memphis and Coach Penny Hardaway’s 2021 recruiting class.
Even though the college basketball recruiting landscape will look incredibly altered this year, there are still many coaches scrambling to add the key piece to a recruiting class or snag the best player on the transfer market. Here we will keep up with the rumors surrounding who Memphis and Coach Penny Hardaway are looking to sign for the 2020 class.
This week should’ve been the national title game but I’m not mad, I promise. The wound is healing but it’s been a tremendously slow process. In order to alleviate the pain we had to jump back on and talk The Scheme on HBO featuring Christian Dawkins. Surprise: we thought it was dumb. Then we interview one of the most energetic and positive individuals we’ve ever had, Pantelis Xidias. He tells us about the season DePaul had, how the postseason cancellation was conveyed to him and he coins the term “Hypeful.” Finally we end with Hugs and TWIT.
Zak and Mason are joined by Subbi from Theater In College Hoops to discuss how the Memphis freshmen fared in their inaugural season of CBB. The guys compare the Memphis kids to those freshmen who were ranked near them coming out of high school. The results may be surprising to some fans of Penny’s Tigers.
Today was supposed to be the day that we all worked for. The reason we got those reps in. The reason we watched all that film. The reason we stayed up watching UC Santa Barbara vs. Hawaii at the Devil’s hour. But as we know there is no tournament. That’s why we decided to give you a bonus episode. We interview Max Goren, the creator of the viral One Shining Moment video that’s been circulating on twitter. He gives us some context on the creation of the video, how he’s handling fame and we even talk a little NC State basketball.
