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
Memphis looks to avoid it’s first losing streak of the season as they travel to Koch Arena in Wichita to play the 13-1 Shockers.
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
The Tigers look to vanquish their third SEC foe of the season against potential #1 NBA draft pick Anthony Edwards and the Georgia Bulldogs.
Picking up where I left off from my Atlantic lookback, I am moving on to the Central Division. I do think this division had more action and mix-up that warrants analysis. Now let’s break down what each team did.
Last episode of the year, can’t hold anything back now. Subbi went to Dayton to check out Sloppy Toppin and the Flyers. He also was impressed with their arena and drinking “lounge.” We talk about Cole Anthony and Myles Powell’s injuries and how that impacts the viewer’s experience of college basketball. We also make a pledge to Iowa. Arizona loses to Gonzaga and Providence is dead. We also predict Ohio State vs. Kentucky and shout out our pal, Jon Rothstein. We end the year with TWIT and of course Hugs for the holidays.
I take a look back at this off-season to see how my analysis (as well as others) are standing up now with a good bit of the season in the books.
Here is the Atlantic division:
Next year, I’m betting every game.
