    THE ARCHIVE: “Clint Peterson”

    THE ARCHIVE: “Clint Peterson”

    A year or so ago, Brittany Johnson had the brilliant idea of bringing Clint Peterson on as a guest. I had never heard of him nor had I read his NBA blog.

    A few days before the show I asked Brittany the: ‘Who, what, when, were, and why,’ on Mr. Peterson. She said Clint’s great and he might change your mind on the Utah Jazz and the NBA as a whole.

    So listen in as Client, reminisces about the Utah Jazz,  and the NBA life.

    DROPPIN DIMES 041: “Utah State Has Gone Global”

    DROPPIN DIMES 041: “Utah State Has Gone Global”

    We try to get to the bottom of what happen after the Utah State vs. Nevada basketball game that lead to Nevada forward Jordan Caroline punching a glass fire extinguisher case outside of the locker room and the coaching staff yelling at police officers.

    Of course we talk about the tensions in the Lakers locker room following draft rumors and an embarrassing loss to the Phoenix Suns. Following that loss, Snoop Dogg took to his social media to rant about how terrible the Lakers are and called for a new coach and new teammates for LeBron James.

    We also touched on the Ole Miss basketball players who took a knee during the national anthem and why they did it, and spoke about the NBA’s new basketball league in Africa.

    DROPPIN DIMES 040: “Pac-12 Networks: Love it or nah?”

    DROPPIN DIMES 040: “Pac-12 Networks: Love it or nah?”

    This week on Droppin Dimes, we spent much of the time speaking about the Pac-12 Network. A recent report claims the network is suffering financially and not getting the biggest bang for its buck.

    We take a closer look at the claims made in the report. We also talk about the state of the Pac-12 Conference in general, what it would take to recruit top-of-the-line talent to Utah and more.

    We also speak about Washington State University, football coach: Mike Leach. Apparently, Leach is going from the sidelines to the classroom. He’ll be teaching a class titled “Insurgent Warfare and Football” at WSU.

    We also talk a little NBA regarding Anthony Davis’ trade request.

    DROPPIN DIMES 039: “Ride the Wave”

    DROPPIN DIMES 039: “Ride the Wave”

    On this week’s episode of Droppin Dimes, we talk about everything from the great Utah-BYU rivalry game, to women holding notable positions in professional sports and the latest controversy surrounding NBA Center Dwight Howard.

    After playing from behind all three quarters, Utah made one of the best comebacks in college football history and scored four straight touchdowns in 13 minutes to win 35-27. We recapped the win and looked ahead to the Utes taking on the Washington Huskies for the Pac-12 Championship. If the Utes win the championship, they play the winner of Ohio State and Northwestern, so we discussed the possibility of playing Urban Meyer, the former Utah head coach.

    Plus, former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice is going to be the new head coach of the Cleveland Browns? There’s a possibility that can happen. We break down the scenario and talk about the need for women involvement in some sort of official capacity within make sports.

    And finally, we discuss Dwight Howard’s new drama and how he’s allegedly been outted by his ex-boyfriend. While Twitter is having a field day with the news, our conversation eventually takes a more serious tone when we speak about issues still facing the LGBTQ community.

    DROPPIN DIMES 038: “Keep it Pushin’”

    DROPPIN DIMES 038: “Keep it Pushin’”

    This week’s podcast has a little something for everyone. On episode 38 we cover everything from Pac-12 football, the NBA and a huge drug bust in Salt Lake City.

    We open up the show with that drug bust. Sascha Blume has found himself in a pickle. His landlords, which he has never met, were busted by the feds for allegedly laundering millions of dollars in drug money to fund a popular concert venue in Salt Lake City. So does Sascha continue paying rent? Will the feds seize the property he rents out? At this point it’s too early to tell, so we will continue podcasting from the trap house until we’re asked to leave!

    We also recapped Utah’s dominating victory over USC. During that conversation, we also discuss freshman quarterback Jack Tuttle’s decision to transfer out of Utah’s football program.

    And finally, we, of course, talked about the fight between the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets. The fight involved Brandon Ingram, Rajon Rondo, and Chris Paul. Did you miss it? We give you play-by-play action during the podcast.
