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.
Taylor again takes the mic and goes iso on the first episode of the new year. The episode begins with some thoughts on the NCAA’s official announcement of the tournament being held in the Indianapolis metro area. From there we bring in Palmer Yoakum to discuss Kentucky basketball, their struggles this year and where they go from here. Plus we get to hear about some behind the scenes moments in Big Blue Nation. After our interview, Texas is highlighted as the team of the week along with Iowa’s rise back to the top five. The episode rounds out as we take a look at why Washington basketball is so bad and then look ahead to a few of the week’s best matchups. Taylor ends the show with a hug for the listeners and reminds everyone that no man is a failure who has friends…and no podcast is a failure who has listeners. Happy New Year theatergoers!
Ho Ho Ho, wishing you a very TICHY Christmas! Before we dive into the roast beast we dive into our new cult hero, Adam Kunkel and his game winning 3 against Marquette. Then we discuss Coach Cal’s twitter post essentially dismissing Cam Fletcher. Staying in the coaching circle, we talk Penny Hardaway’s extension with Memphis. Then we look at last week and talk Gonzaga vs. The Field and how nobody seems to care that Michigan State got embarrassed by Northwestern. Subbi delivers an impassioned/borderline psychotic speech highlighting the stark difference between the NCAA basketball selection committee and the College Football Playoff committee. Then we end it with Gamblin & Griswold, Friday Bracketology & Hugs.
Despite Covid taking the best game of the year away from us we’re back to recap what happened last week in the college basketball world. We also look forward to a scrumptious slate of games this upcoming week and we introduce a new segment: “Gamblin & Griswoldin”
The Shark and Taylor will give you their best gambling picks and you’ll either become rich or poor. No in between. We also are back with TWIT and Hugs plus the Shark gives us some wise words: “What A Time To Have Time” Write that down.
We’ve officially made it back but that doesn’t mean all is well. The Shark & Subbi hash some things out before we dive into topics like Luka Garza dominating already, 3 top 10 teams losing, Gonzaga being a wagon (Gonwagon? Gonzagan?) workshop with me. And of course Calipari comes out hot with an impassioned/absurd sound byte. Then we interview long time listener and avid Dukie, Jimmy McGuinness to get his thoughts on the Blue Devils and we try to figure out why the Duke big man went from the great looks of Christian Laettner to Ryan Kelly and Matthew Hurt. Then we wrap up with Hugs.
