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.
4-15: The Safe Play
Philip Montgomery signed a 2-year contract extension at "an unspecified time during the season", so he's now under contract through January or February of 2024.
We give our thoughts on the extension and what it means for TU football before digging into the SMU game, the transfer portal, bowl game possibilities, the AAC coaching carousel (and JP leaving Fear the Wave), basketball (men's and women's), and the end of the men's soccer season.
A packed episode, but a very fun one! Hope you enjoy it.
JP's announcement post that he's leaving Fear the Wave - well worth a read even if you don't care about Tulane/Fear the Wave: https://fearthewave.substack.com/p/waving-goodbye-jp-says-farewell-to
4-14: TU's Mega Sports Weekend (ft. Steve Gage)
A lot is happening in the world of Tulsa sports - Tulsa escaped Tulane with a win, women's basketball opened up a new era with a win, men's basketball won their opener before shockingly dropping one to Air Force, and men's soccer won the AAC Tournament to wrap it all up. We talk about all of that + bring in TU Hall of Famer Steve Gage to talk about TU football in the 80s and some of his thoughts on football today.
4-13: The Football + Basketball + Soccer Megasode (ft. JP from Fear the Wave)
Buckle up folks, this is a big one. We:
1) Break down the College GameDay heartbreaker against Cincinnati
2) Preview one of our favorite football games (Tulane) with one of our favorite people (JP from Fear the Wave)
3) Bust out the basketball season preview!!!
4) Talk about men's soccer and hosting the AAC soccer tournament (starts on Wednesday!)
There's probably more in there tbh. I know there was some playoff expansion and conference realignment discussion as well.
Our longest episode ever! Big shout out to you if you listen to the whole thing.
4-12: GameDay (ft. Brandon from GoBeercats)
Tulsa travels to Cincinnati to take on the Bearcats in their first ever appearance on College GameDay. We bring back Brandon from GoBeercats to talk about the matchup and all things Cincy. Be sure to listen to his podcast as well this week to hear Ryan and Matt talk the Tulsa side of the matchup. Additionally, we break down the disappointing Navy loss and talk briefly about Montywatch.
4-11: The American Athletic Conference of These United States of America (ft. Mike James)
There's a new AAC in town and it means BUSINESS. (if by business you mean big markets and a lot of money, which actually I think qualifies as BUSINESS pretty well)
We discuss the new-look AAC, why they brought in 6 teams, why these 6 in particular, and we break down each school and what they bring to the table.
After that, we welcome in Mike James (@navybirddog) from The Mid Report to preview Navy for us before this week's game against the Midshipmen.
4-10: J.J.’s No Sports Zone Returns
Tulsa avoided the upset and came away with a one point win over USF this weekend. Now facing a bye week we bring back J.J. Cody for our second annual “No Sports Zone” to talk VanderPump rules, Magic Treehouse and way more!
Great Podcast on TU
Maybe I’m a biased reviewer as I’m one of the co-hosts of this podcast, but we are the premiere podcast for all things Tulsa sports. I would give a perfect 5/7 if I could.
A Golden podcast
It’s so awesome to have a podcast dedicated to my college team, and these guys know their stuff!!
Faith in Haith
My faith in Haith may be low, but I’m full mast for the Golden Huricast.
