Theater In College Hoops (Ep. 49) – DePaul upset, Louisville two step & Payton Pritchard magic

Failing to prepare is preparing to fail. That’s why we’re in the film room. Literally. We’re watching the Oscar nominated movies and we give our reactions to them thus far. We also talk about Subbi’s boots on the ground in DePaul and him getting owned by a fan in the row behind him. Baylor is the 7th #1 team in the country, Louisville makes Shark eat his words meanwhile Payton Pritchard makes Subbi and Taylor eat their words. Lotta eating, lotta crow. Dayton’s magical season continues courtesy of Jalen Crutcher and Providence gets a gut punch from Creighton. Also, we bid the question: Is Florida the most unpredictable team in the country? We round it out with Hugs and Where Am I?

Theater In College Hoops (Ep. 48) – Team hashtags, Shark fed up with BC, Louisville is toxic

We were kinda all over the map with this one.
We recapped the big items from the past week including the Shark being #done with BC, the best hashtags from mid majors, an INSANE shot from Ryan Daly of St. Joes and a new nickname for a Big 10 player.
We had to give love to Clemson and Baylor for exorcising demons on the road and Subbi thinks Baylor should be ranked #1.
We then talk about the arrogance of Wichita State, Louisville’s toxicity and a new medical condition in college basketball fandom: Remote Control Stress (RCS).
We end with Hugs and Where am I?

Theater In College Hoops (Ep. 46)

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.

Theater In College Hoops (Ep. 45) – Big name injuries, PC is dead, OSU/Kentucky

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.

Theater In College Hoops (Ep. 44) – The curse of the top ranked

Teams ranked number 1 are 6-4 on the year. 4 losses. The ball hasn’t even dropped yet in Times Square and FOUR TEAMS RANKED #1 HAVE ALREADY LOST! We discuss who was more disappointing: Louisville or Maryland? Also it seems that Penn State always somehow pulls off one upset each year at home during the middle of the week. We give credit to Baylor and Butler after their exciting finish in Waco. Shark talks some Ewing Theory, McClung and the Tennessee tilt in Knoxville. We also make quick predictions for Gonzaga @ Arizona and Oregon @ Michigan. Then we discuss who would win in a tag team wrestling match: The Miller Brothers or the Hurley Brothers. Lastly it’s Where am I? and Hugs.

Theater In College Hoops (Ep. 43) – Luka Garza, UNC and the Ocean State rivalry

Our Christmas trees are lit and so are we. We recap Luka Garza’s 44 point outburst, Michigan’s victory and Carolina might be in trouble as they’ve dropped 3 of their last 4. We also discuss Subbi’s apprehension with Arizona after their loss to Baylor. Also, Travis Steele is one cool dude, that’s why we chose him for Big East Coach of the Year. We also have the Rhode Island guys back to discuss URI’s thrashing of Providence. Not even the Crier could spin this one. Then we finish up with Where am I (this guy is the modern day Reuben Feffer) and Hugs.

Theater In College Hoops (Ep. 42) – More Big 10/ACC challenge, The Big East, Georgetown & a new segment

The Big 10/ACC challenge rolls on as we recap MSU’s PUTRID effort at home against Duke and highlight Louisville’s defense against Michigan. We also talk Big East and how deep and open the conference really is and we had to spend time on the trouble at Georgetown. Is this the year that Archie Miller takes his Hoosiers to the tournament? Also, we let The Shark have the spotlight on stage so that he can drag Cuonzo Martin and Mizzou’s loss to Charleston Southern. Finally, we introduce our new segment titled “Where am I?” inspired by Hansel in Zoolander and we can’t forget Hugs.

Theater In College Hoops (Ep. 40) – Monster Upsets, Anthony Edwards and A10

Happy TICHgiving, theatergoers! Big plate of college hoops (so creamed corny) to discuss. First we compare the Kentucky and Duke upsets and debate which is worse. We also lump Michigan State along with Kentucky and Duke and predict which one of those teams, if any, will get a 1 seed come tourney time. Also Anthony Edwards, good LORD. We talk about his eruption in the second half against Sparty. Then we make a trip to the A10. Apparently we haven’t given them enough love but we do so on this episode. Plus, we give Obi Toppin a new nickname. For dessert we give you some warm hugs topped with whipped cream.

Theater In College Hoops (Ep. 39) – Recapping last week and Feast Week

Subbi is back from his Grand Canyon adventure so we recap his trip. We also got down a rabbit hole that includes head coaches recruiting basketball players from the Havasupai tribe. We recap some of the big games from last week and look ahead to Feast Week. Focus your attention to the Battle 4 Atlantis. Lotta good ball clubs playing there. As usual we end with TWIT and Hugs.
