Theatergoers. It’s the Holy Month. It’s March. Words cannot do it justice but you already know how great this journey we’re about to embark on truly is. First step? The Jerome. That’s right. The palate cleansing tournament that precedes the Big Daddy is officially here. We make our picks for Batch 1 of the conference tournaments with GREAT friend of the program but more importantly the Keeper Of The Jerome, Brendan O’Rourke. Then we end it with Hugs. As I type this out I’m just so damn aroused for this month. Enjoy it. We made it!

Theater In College Hoops (Ep.57)- Interview with former Dayton player Logan Nourse, Baylor/Kansas, Creighton love & doppelgangers

Packed show this Thursday. We briefly preview the biggest game of the weekend, maybe of the regular season and DEFINITELY of the Big 12 season as Baylor hosts Kansas. From a scorching hot team in Baylor to another, we finally give Creighton its due. They haven’t lost in a month, you guys. Why is nobody talking about them? Time to give them the Kiss of TICH. Then we ramble about rims, nets and doppelgangers. A true rabbit hole for the insane college basketball mind. Complete lunacy. We also welcome to the program former Dayton Flyer basketball player, Logan Nourse. He discusses his time there and what he’s expecting from his boys as we head towards March. We top it off with Where Am I? and Hugs.

Theater In College Hoops (Ep. 56)- Interview with Indiana lifer Ryan Logue, Memphis basketball & Twitter spats

Big show today as we welcome Indiana lifer, Ryan Logue, for an interview. He gives us some outstanding Bob Knight stories. I’m talking deep cuts, not just the chair throwing. He also provides his thoughts on the Indiana/Purdue rivalry and if he’d rather have a corn fed farm boy vs. a city guy from Indiana. Logue also busted out his singing voice and I gotta tell ya… we all gasped. We also talk about Shark and Taylor getting in the mud with the Providence guys on Twitter, Keith Appling is facing heroin charges? A weird time for Memphis hoop fans and Shareef O’Neal is following his daddy’s footsteps. We wrap it up with Where Am I? and Hugs.

Theater In College Hoops (Ep. 55)

Love is in the air, my sweet theater goers. Despite this fact, The Shark got into a Twitter fight with some guy in Georgia named John Wick. We then discuss the former ugly ducklings (Dayton, SDSU and to an extent Gonzaga) and their glow up. We call it “Boggsing” in reference to Laney Boggs and the great She’s All That/Not Another Teen Movie. Which one of those 3 has the best chance to hoist the title? Then we do a little review of Rothstein’s show “Stuffed” and we found out what Ian Eagle’s son is up to. After that, we have the hilarious Chris Alphen on to discuss Penn State’s historic season and end it with Where Am I? and Hugs.

Theater In College Hoops (Ep. 54)

The Shark gets his 15 minutes of fame. Literally. After a lost bet in the Maryland/Illinois game, The Shark gets 15 minutes of uninterrupted talking. Think of it as his big soliloquy. He touches upon his favorite college basketball teams, players and movies from the last 30 years. Riveting stuff. Taylor and Subbi come to the rescue and discuss Oscars, Bob Knight’s return and the Duke/UNC wild ending. Then we all vent about Arizona and how underwhelming they truly are as a program. Finally we end it with TWIT and Hugs.

Great show today as we sit down with friend of the program and Assistant Director of Operations for Auburn men’s basketball, Mike Burgomaster. We also discuss Jon Rothstein’s new show titled “Stuffed.” We think it’s just him eating, watching film, talking to coaches and spewing his hilarious one liners so yeah… it’s must watch theater. We reminisce on some of our fondest Duke/UNC memories because this upcoming game has the potential to be a real stinker. Finally we end the program with Where Am I? and Hugs.
