Today was supposed to be the day that we all worked for. The reason we got those reps in. The reason we watched all that film. The reason we stayed up watching UC Santa Barbara vs. Hawaii at the Devil’s hour. But as we know there is no tournament. That’s why we decided to give you a bonus episode. We interview Max Goren, the creator of the viral One Shining Moment video that’s been circulating on twitter. He gives us some context on the creation of the video, how he’s handling fame and we even talk a little NC State basketball.
You know how at the end of every show we give out hugs? Well, TICH might be in need of a hug. With the news of fans not being allowed to enter stadiums during March Madness, the boys are downtrodden, hurt, befuddled, confused but most of all sad. We try to make sense of it all and try to identify if there are any silver linings in this. How will this impact your bracket? How will this impact your viewing habits? How will this impact your overall satisfaction with life? Hopefully we gave you some guidance. Then, we cheer up a bit as we welcome first timer and former Wisconsin basketball player, JD Wise, to the program to share some stories about his playing days and his thoughts on this current Wisconsin team. We cap it off with TWIT and Hugs.
We’re barreling into Selection Sunday but first, Taylor and Subbi revisit their preseason predictions. Some conferences were terrible, some weren’t so bad. Then, we make our Jerome Week 2 picks. This is when the big dogs come to play. Power conferences plus a lil LeVelle Moton. Also, have any of you heard the Christmas jingle, Dominick The Donkey? If not, take a listen and then once you have it in your head replace the name with Davide Moretti. Finally, we end the program with Where Am I? and Hugs
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!
As our lead guard Subbi flies across the country, Taylor and the Shark review the weekend behind us, including Baylor, San Diego State and Gonzaga all going down. More importantly, we discuss bachelor party etiquette when you aren’t actually invited to the bachelor party but you live in the same town as the bachelor party. The Shark breaks down Tennessee basketball and Providence fans, while Taylor has a break down about Arizona basketball. We round it out with a plea to the Theater-goers: Can you please help us find Xavier Henry?
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.
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.
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.
Football is over so that means it’s officially time to get hyped for March Madness and college hoops. We recap our weekends and that SPELLBOUNDING Super Bowl halftime performance. The Big East had a wacky day with 3 ranked teams losing at home. Then we discuss teams on the 13-16 line that could pull off a first game upset. All eyes on Bowling Green, Vermont and Liberty. We talk about Texas Tech skulking in the weeds and finish it out with Hugs and Where am I?
