For the first time this year, the guys open the show and primarily focus on College Basketball. It was a big week for B-Frank and his Pirates as The Hall notched their second win of the season over a Top-10 opponent beating Texas last Thursday. B-Frank gives his thoughts on seeing the team in person for the first time this year. Other teams in the winner’s column were Alabama following their win over Houston in an exciting game, Baylor controlled Villanova, Iowa State blew out Iowa, Colorado State is 10-0, DePaul gets a shoutout following their road win at Louisville, LSU is red-hot in the non-conference, and Xavier has quietly been one of the best teams in the Big East.
On the flip side, Purdue headlines the losers as they lost in spectacular fashion to an average-at-best rutger team after being named #1 for the first time in school history. The Boilermakers then went on to struggle over the weekend with NC State but did eventually pull away and win in overtime. Villanova has failed to grab a big win to start their season and already has three losses (granted it is to three Top-10 teams), Kentucky lost to a sub-par Notre Dame team over the weekend, Syracuse got swept by old Big East rivals Villanova and Georgetown, Florida State has lost three in a row, Arkansas got the doors blown off by Oklahoma, and Florida continues their slide after getting tons of praise from this very show.
The guys close up the show with a bit of College Football news, in no surprise, Bryce Young won the Heisman Trophy. In a bit of a surprise, Dan Lanning the architect of the stout Georgia Bulldogs’ defense has been named the new Head Coach at Oregon. The guys discuss the hire and what they expect to see from the Ducks and the Pac-12 moving forward.
