Theater In College Hoops (Ep. 90)- Texas & Illinois, Masks While Playing and Please Sir, I Want Some More

Taylor again takes the mic and goes iso on the first episode of the new year. The episode begins with some thoughts on the NCAA’s official announcement of the tournament being held in the Indianapolis metro area. From there we bring in Palmer Yoakum to discuss Kentucky basketball, their struggles this year and where they go from here. Plus we get to hear about some behind the scenes moments in Big Blue Nation. After our interview, Texas is highlighted as the team of the week along with Iowa’s rise back to the top five. The episode rounds out as we take a look at why Washington basketball is so bad and then look ahead to a few of the week’s best matchups. Taylor ends the show with a hug for the listeners and reminds everyone that no man is a failure who has friends…and no podcast is a failure who has listeners. Happy New Year theatergoers!

Ho Ho Ho, wishing you a very TICHY Christmas! Before we dive into the roast beast we dive into our new cult hero, Adam Kunkel and his game winning 3 against Marquette.

Theater In College Hoops (Ep. 86)- Coach K, Garza & Friday Bracketology

Back with another edition of TICH and we dive into the week that was. First we explore Coach K’s Covid comments (alliteration for ya) and we have takes ranging from him being a hypocrite all the way to him being a politician. Then we discuss Marquette’s toughness and their solid start to the year. Know who else is having a solid start to the year? Luka Garza. Just joking he’s having a scorching hot start. We touch on his virtuoso performance against Iowa State. Then we try and figure out what’s going on in Lexington because Kentucky stinks. We also look ahead to some scrumptious games and give out some winners (probably losers) in Gamblin’ & Griswoldin.’ Finally we wrap it up with Friday Bracketology and a repeat Where Am I?
