If we’re being honest with each other the Elite 8 games kinda stunk with the exception of UCLA/Michigan. Hell UCLA might’ve played the two best games of the tournament and they won. Their prize? Gonzaga. Then we look at the other side of the bracket with the Lone Star Shootout as Baylor and Houston are set to square off. The Final 4 is upon us ladies and gents!
Last show before we tip off in Indy. It bears repeating but I want you all to cherish this moment. Cherish this bracket. Cherish these players. Cherish these venues. Cherish Greg Gumbel kicking it back to Spero Dedes after an update. Just cherish it all. We deliver you our official TICH bracket predictions. Fair warning- this does not mean we’ve chosen these in our personal brackets. To take it a step further, we might even be playing you in order to get a competitive edge if you’re in our bracket. Regardless, enjoy the picks. Ride with us, fade us. It’s all beautiful. Enjoy March Madness folks. You deserve it!
Welcome to postseason TICH. We’re back with our Jerome Week 2 picks as we break down the power Conferences as well as the MEAC (one of the worst conferences in America). We also continue to go back to our TICH roots as it’s just Subbi & The Shark. Then we bring back Friday Bracketology, TWIT and got a lil something extra for ya come next Monday. Next time you hear from us the Holy Day will have come and gone. Selection Sunday is mere days away. Enjoy the conference tourney theat.
It’s been long. It’s been arduous. It’s been fatiguing. It’s been sad. It’s been grotesque. But we made it. A year after the rug was SNATCHED out from under us we’ve made it to March. Our month and don’t you ever forget that. We discuss Rothstein’s countdown to March and this past weekend. Specifically how unbelievable Cade Cunningham really is despite having all of the expectations on him. Then we talk about our favorite precursor to the tournament: The Jerome! We leak a few tidbits that you can only get from the TICH guys. Then of course we deliver you some winners and finish it up with TWIT & Hugs. Again, rejoice all. We’ve made it to March!
BIG episode today as the TICH boys interview the 2007 SEC Player Of The Year and one of the greatest college hoopers ever, Chris Lofton. We talk everything from his recruiting, to his overseas career to his victorious battle with cancer. We also talk about Jim Christian getting fired and The Shark is finally liberated. For some reason he wants Bobby Hurley in Chestnut Hill though. Very odd. Then we discuss Jalen Johnson opting out and how the media has responded. As usual we finish it off with Hugs.
Super Bowl is over. Football is over. The sporting world now turns their attention to college hoops. We’re only about 5 weeks away from The Holy Day aka Selection Sunday so we briefly look back on the week that was. We also had Barstool’s Big Man On Campus, Jeff Nadu to talk everything from teams he likes, The Wire and his weight loss journey. It’s Team Nadu around these parts. Then we finish up with 3 segments: Please Sir, I Want Some More followed by TWIT followed by Hugs.
Don’t look now but we’re only a month away from March. Subbi has one more week left of his Whole 30 diet while the Shark has ripped the band aid off of his diet. We talk Waste Mangement Open, new Covid protocols for the tournament and Oklahoma’s hot streak. We then pivot to the greatest rivalry in all of sports: Duke/UNC. Both of these teams stink, they lost to inferior opponents, the players are bad… yet we’re all still pavloving for the matchup. We then ask how you fill out your bracket: pen/paper, online or both? We also talk about NCAA video games coming back, West Virginia’s GAUNTLET and our gambling corner. Finally we wrap it up with Where Am I? and Hugs.
A thick, thick show ahead of you today as we talk about Coach K’s presser and Bobby Hurley’s con. We then discuss the SEC as we dive into topics such as Alabama being ranked in the Top10 and Jerry Stackhouse losing it on his team and fans. Then we bring in host of the Noble-Roosh Podcast, Zak Noble, to talk everything NBA, his time at Kansas and his thoughts on Kobe Bryant & Sekou Smith.
Just The Shark & Subbi today as they dive into an array of topics. First we discuss dry January and Whole 30. It’s tough but there is no denying that you wake up feeling refreshed. But don’t fret, we’ll rip the band aid off on Super Bowl Sunday. Then we talk about the fact that for the first time in 60+ years, neither Duke, UNC nor Kentucky are ranked. Wild COVID times we live in but that’s why Subbi says that this year doesn’t really count. Throw an asterisk on it! Then we discuss if Baylor is getting enough credit, Subbi goes down a rabbit hole and probably needs some air and we discuss if you can lose your Blue Blood status. Then we talk about the new tournament schedule. Some very reactionary opinions but there’s no doubt it’s a shock to the system. A gut punch. We venture to May I Have Some More and round it out with Hugs.
Subbi is back from his holiday cross country road trip and the Shark is back as well despite the Football Team losing on Saturday. The boys are all together for the first time in 2021 and they talk Texas and Shaka Smart. Is there a correlation between his hair and his success? Then we discuss Illinois’ up and down season. Is Brad Underwood to blame for this inconsistency? They’re just an unpredictable bunch. We then head to the northeast to highlight BU wearing masks while playing and UConn jogging our memory as they’re in the top25 representing the Big East. We also did some rebranding. It’s no longer “Gamblin’ & Griswoldin” but rather “Please Sir, I Want Some More” The Shark and Taylor give you more winners (losers as well). Then we finish it off with Where Am I? and Hugs.
