    6-17: MARCH MARCH MARCH

    We're officially in the best sports time of the year in this podcast host's humble opinion. And despite the women bowing out early in the AAC tournament to East Carolina, we're still fired up for March.



    We discuss:

    - The men's and women's AAC awards

    - The women losing to ECU in the AAC quarterfinals and heading to the WBIT

    - The men beating #24 USF to close the regular season

    - Preview the men's game against ECU with Jared Shafit from The Boneyard Podcast

    - Discuss the AAC tournament more broadly



    Fun episode! Hope you enjoy it.

    6-16: Basketball CHAOS

    6-16: Basketball CHAOS

    For the first time in a month, we've got an episode with both Ryan AND Matt - and we are pumped to be back.

    Before we get into the actual games that happened over the last week of actual basketball, we talk about Kelly Hines writing another new article for TU athletics, as well as a new Tulsa student fan group called The CHAOS.

    We then get into the games, which included a wild swing on the men's side where TU scored over 100 points in a blowout win, then followed that up by allowing over 100 points in a blowout loss.

    The women had a more sane week with two nice wins but get ready for a much more difficult week coming up.

    We also take a look around the league and debate who the most important player on the women's team is: Temira Poindexter or Delanie Crawford.



    Kelly Hines' article on Isaiah Barnes: https://tulsahurricane.com/news/2024/1/23/mens-basketball-isaiah-barnes-looking-to-be-the-best-version-of-me-every-day

    6-15: So Much Basketball

    6-15: So Much Basketball

    We are back! Well, almost. With Ryan out this week, Matt talks on all the football and basketball news from the last four weeks. And there is a-lot to talk about including: updates from the transfer portal (both good and bad), the appearance of a mustachio-ed mascot, and 9(!) games worth of basketball thoughts.

    6-14: Good Signs for the Future

    6-14: Good Signs for the Future

    What a week for Tulsa Athletics! Kevin Wilson brought in Tulsa's highest ranked signing class since 2009 which has them sitting second in the AAC and second in the Group of Five.

    On top of that both basketball teams had perfect weeks with their best wins of the season - the men over Missouri State and the women over Texas Tech.

    We talk about all of that and do some quick previews for the next two(!) weeks while we take a holiday break.

    P.S. We recorded before the women's game was over on Wednesday, but did talk about it as it was happening live!

    6-13: Growing Pains and Gains

    The men's team played an ugly game against Oklahoma State last weekend, but the women's team had a massive win for the program by beating a top 100 Florida team on the same day.

    We talk break down both games before previewing matchups against MO State (M), Mississippi Valley State (M), Texas Southern (W) and Texas Tech (W).



    We also talk portal news, NIL, and the retirement of a titan in the Tulsa football world.
