    5-13: Our #MontyWatch is Ended (ft. John Tranchina & Cayden McFarland)

    The Philip Montgomery era at The University of Tulsa has come to a close, as the university parted ways with him on Sunday afternoon. 

    To discuss the fallout of that decision, we bring on not one, but TWO, guests.

    First, we welcome the Tulsa World's TU Beat Writer John Tranchina to the show for the first time to discuss whether Coach Montgomery should've been fired or not, thoughts on him as a man and a coach, how this move impacts the transfer portal, John's favorite Montgomery-era memories, and even some men's soccer talk. 

    After that, Cayden McFarland joins the show to look into the future and debate which candidates make the most sense and why, whether TU is a "hard place to win", whether connection to the university matters, and plenty more. 

    We round things out by giving our own thoughts on the coaching situation and briefly summarizing the rest of the recent events in the TU athletics world.

    5-12: The #MontyWatch Returns (ft. Rob Steeg from The Daily Stampede)

    HOO BOY have we got a packed episode for you this week. 

    After Tulsa football's loss to Memphis last week, we are officially bowl-ineligible and the #MontyWatch discussion is reignited. We dig into Coach Montgomery's status, potential names in the college football coaching world to watch for, and more. 

    After that, we bring in Rob Steeg from The Daily Stampede to preview this week's game against the USF Bulls and also commiserate with us about head coaching woes. Rob was a blast as usual, definitely tune in for the interview. 

    We round things out by talking men's basketball signing day, the win over Jackson State, and previewing the Myrtle Beach Invitational before getting into women's basketball, men's soccer headed to the NCAA Tournament, cross country heading to the NCAA National Championships, and more.

    5-11: Sports are Rough – Tulane Recap / Memphis Preview / BBall Recap

    5-11: Sports are Rough – Tulane Recap / Memphis Preview / BBall Recap

    Tulsa had a rough sports week, with the women's basketball team's domination of Alcorn State being the lone bright spot. Football dropped a somewhat boring game to Tulane, basketball was unable to closeout Oregon State in the second half, and men's soccer dropped their AAC tournament opener to Memphis at home in OT. Here's hoping this upcoming week plays out better.

    5-10: The Megasode Returns — Homecoming Recap, Tulane Preview (ft. JP Gooderham of Fear the Wave), & Basketball Season Previews

    After a week away due to traveling and enjoying Tulsa's Homecoming festivities (and issues with Apple Podcasts), we're back with a PACKED episode for you. We've got a football recap, we've got a football preview with JP Gooderham from Fear the Wave, we've got BASKETBALL SEASON on deck with Men's & Women's basketball season previews. It's a busy one. 

    Unfortunately it kicks off on a down note as we need to discuss yet another Tulsa football loss - this time dropping the Homecoming game vs SMU. 

    We recap the SMU game before welcoming in JP Gooderham of Fear the Wave fame. After moving on from football, we turn to basketball season (which starts on Monday, November 7th for both squads) and preview both teams. Following that, we break down other sports including cross country's continued conference dominance, men's soccer looking strong heading into championship szn, women's soccer's unfortunate early end, the passing of Dale McNamara, and more.

    5-9: Goodbye Bye Week — Temple Preview and Tulsa Sports Roundup

    The bye week is over and football is back as The Golden Hurricane hit the road to take on Temple on Friday. This game offers Tulsa a much needed chance to get back on track, and hopefully showcase a healthier team. We break down this TU-TU matchup in depth before diving in to all the other sports happening around campus.

    5-8: Vibe Shift — Navy Recap & J.J.'s No Sports Zone (ft. J.J. Cody Fox)

    Y'all, Tulsa at Navy in 2022 will go down as one of the worst college football games I have ever watched as a Tulsa fan. Almost nothing good happened for TU as Navy boat-raced the Hurricane 53-21 in Annapolis. We discuss what went wrong, Monty's adjustments (or lack thereof), Brin & Braxton, special teams nightmares, and plenty more. 

    The lone (very) bright spot was Keylon Stokes, who surpassed both his brother (Keevan Lucas) and Dan Bitson in Tulsa's all-time receiving yards list to take the #2 spot. The only hurdle left is Tulsa great Howard Twilley, who stands just 28 yards away. 

    We recap the Navy game and talk other Tulsa sports from this past week, but Tulsa football has their bye week this week! So no preview this week. 

    To switch things up, we welcome J.J. Cody Fox onto the show for the 3rd annual J.J.'s No Sports Zone! We talk about all kinds of things, including her recent marriage to former Golden Hurricast co-host Pat Fox, near-death experiences, Survivor, Oktoberfest,  AIM screen-names, halloween costumes, walk-up songs, and a bunch more. It was a blast as usual. Check it out!

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.

Stay Golden!
