Oh wow, this is our 50th episode. Shocked that they let us get to this number but we’ll take it. We discussed the Kansas brawl, the Illinois stomp and apparently Subbi can’t pronounce the letter “u.” Then we revisit our preseason predictions and give them health grades. Lastly, we finish up with This Week In Theat and Hugs.
Thoughts on Rockets, Cavs, and Pels. Is Jae Crowder actually good on the court? News: TA joining Hustle in official capacity. Morant opting out of
Failing to prepare is preparing to fail. That’s why we’re in the film room. Literally. We’re watching the Oscar nominated movies and we give our reactions to them thus far. We also talk about Subbi’s boots on the ground in DePaul and him getting owned by a fan in the row behind him. Baylor is the 7th #1 team in the country, Louisville makes Shark eat his words meanwhile Payton Pritchard makes Subbi and Taylor eat their words. Lotta eating, lotta crow. Dayton’s magical season continues courtesy of Jalen Crutcher and Providence gets a gut punch from Creighton. Also, we bid the question: Is Florida the most unpredictable team in the country? We round it out with Hugs and Where Am I?
We were kinda all over the map with this one.
We recapped the big items from the past week including the Shark being #done with BC, the best hashtags from mid majors, an INSANE shot from Ryan Daly of St. Joes and a new nickname for a Big 10 player.
We had to give love to Clemson and Baylor for exorcising demons on the road and Subbi thinks Baylor should be ranked #1.
We then talk about the arrogance of Wichita State, Louisville’s toxicity and a new medical condition in college basketball fandom: Remote Control Stress (RCS).
We end with Hugs and Where am I?
Zak and Mason discuss the Tigers recent performance against USF and talk Cincinnati. Memphis is going full speed into conference play and the guys give their thoughts on the season performance to date.
The guys talk takeaways from the Grizzlies’ perfect week against the T’Wolves, Spurs, and Warriors in addition to their thoughts on the national media finally taking notice of this young team. Twitter Corner is a segment that looks like it’s here to stay and then we finish up by doling out mid-season team awards for MVP, MIP, 6MPY, DPOY.
What a terrible day for the Shark to be out. This episode was right up his wheelhouse because we covered all of the theater that
Much like Texas football… we’re BAAAAAAACK. No but seriously, unlike Texas football we’re actually back. We recap our holiday vacations, Taylor went to McKale Center, The Shark and Subbi broke bread at their favorite diner and we even talk Golden Globes. We highlight theater after all. Top 10 teams have been shuffling around and it’s made for some serious havoc. Also, predictions are dumb across all sports but Subbi tells you why they’re especially dumb as it pertains to college basketball. Then we get down a wild rabbit hole: Was Slumdog Millionaire based on George Mason’s Final 4 run? We discuss. Finally we wrap it up with Where Am I? and Hugs.
The crew talks about the Grizzlies wins over the weekend, continue to heap praise on Ja and Jaren, and talk potential trades as well as the upcoming schedule. The guys also discuss some popular Twitter polls involving the Grizzlies in recent days. Zak somehow thinks that a third guy — not Ja or Jaren — is the most impactful player in wins. Listen and find out his logic why.
Memphis contained the Bulldogs’ key players, but couldn’t connect the dots in some important areas. Zak recaps and gives his analysis on the Tigers’ first
