A weekly podcast covering Golden Hurricane athletics by Ryan Token and Matt Rechtien. We’re two TU alums, friends, and die-hard fans who love talking TU sports. Not affiliated with The University of Tulsa.
3-26: Coaching Crisis
We didn't have an episode last week, so we allowed ourselves to go closer to an hour this week.
We recap the Temple win and preview this week's games vs Cincy and ECU, but we spend way more time talking about all of the drama currently surrounding the TU athletics department.
Interim AD Rick Dickson no longer has interim in his title. Why? Coaching crisis.
Frank Haith's current contract is up in early 2022. Philip Montgomery's is up in January 2022. Dickson is on record saying that both of these contract issues will be resolved by July of this year. That's just four months away. DRAMA.
We talk at length about what we think will happen, who the frontrunners might be if the university does decide to go in a different direction for men's basketball, and plenty more.
We also discuss Tulsa football's 2021 schedule that was released last week, Zaven Collins winning another national award, TU recruiting updates, and weird coaching staff changes.
3-25: A Sinking Feeling
Another rough week of basketball looks to sink all hope of an NCAA Tourney bid as the Golden Hurricane drop two at home to SMU and UCF. We break down the losses, some weird conspiracy(?) involving Darien Jackson's stats and recap some other big news around TU athletics.
3-24: The Danger Zone
Tulsa men's basketball dropped one they couldn't afford to in an ugly road loss to Temple last week. They rebounded with a road win over ECU, but TU may have to win out in order to make the NCAA tournament.
We recap last week's games while noticing changes in playing time, discussing NCAA tournament hopes, and debating the status of Haith's contract. We then award our player of the week, preview this week's home games vs SMU and UCF, take a look around the conference, and more.
3-23: Hey Would You Score Some Points?
Big oof. Tulsa once again got throttled on the road at Houston, 86–59. With the postponement of the Tulane game we focus almost entirely on the offensive struggles that Tulsa has shown as of late (hint - it involves the number three, and r*bounding). Starting this week the schedule gets easier as we preview the road matchups against Temple (1/26) and ECU (1/30)

3-22: Generally Not More Than 30-ish Minutes
Tulsa men's basketball dropped their 6-game win streak this past week in a 19-point loss on the road against Wichita State. The Hurricane followed that up with a season sweep of their own against the Memphis Tigers though, beating them by 1 on Sunday afternoon.
We talk a lot about 3 pointers, 3-point shooters, and senior leadership.
Here's what's on the agenda for this 'sode:
* Wichita State and Memphis recap
* Player of the week
* Houston and Tulane preview
* Around the American
* Update on who's returning/not returning for next season's football team
* Football recruiting update
3-21 (Bonus): The Jeremie Poplin Show
We bring on Tulsa sideline reporter and radio personality Jeremie Poplin to officially wrap up the end of the football season! From the bowl game brawl to the impact Zaven's national awards have on TU and everything in between.
