In episode 90 of the Rise & Shout podcast, Adam chats with friend of the podcast Jay Drew about the BYU coaching staff. Jay speculates on what types of coaching staff changes we might expect, he comments on Brandon Doman's job security, and he explains why he thinks this coaching staff works as hard as others. Jay also comments on Jabari's visit to campus and how Dave Rose's staff feels about their chances to land the all-world recruit.
Matt enters the podcast arena next to spar with Adam on Notre Dame vs. Alabama (or Georgia), as well as to toss at each other random references from 1990 pop culture. They also pick who they'd start at QB against San Diego State, what changes need to be made to the football coaching staff, and talk about the most surprising and disappointing things about the 2012 football season. They finish talking about the awesome scoring power of Tyler Haws, and about how good an impression BYU fans made on Jabari.
It was not a great weekend for BYU sports fans, but that doesn't stop Adam and Matt from turning in the grittiest, most 1989-pop-music-laden podcast in podcast history.
They start out talking about how conference expansion destroyed an otherwise fascinating weekend in college football. They also pick their ideal destinations for BYU if the Cougars don't remain independent. They bemoan what went wrong with the offense against San Jose State, sing the praises of Van Noy, Ansah and Ogeltree, and wonder what James Lark ever did to make the coaching staff hate his guts.
It's then on to BYU basketball and a lost weekend in NYC. They ponder maybe the most important question for Cougar hoops: what is Matt Carlino's ceiling? And if you don't know Brandon Davies by now (and his flaw of getting into foul trouble), you may never, never know him. They also give a shout out to the women's soccer team.
Greg Wrubell, the voice of the Cougars, joins us in episode 88. We chat with Greg about what we've learned about the Cougar basketball team through two games. He also helps us preview San Jose State, and cautions us not overlook a better-than-expected Spartans team.
Amidst paying homage to the popular music of the year 1988, Matt and Adam also cover several topics, including why joining the Big East does nothing for the Cougars, and just how much Adam dislikes San Diego State. They also preview the SJSU football game and this weekend's trip to NYC for the Cougar hoopters. All this and much more for your listening pleasure.
In Episode 87, Adam chats to child of the 80s and BYUtv reporter Robbie Bullough. They talk about how he got one of the sweetest gigs in the known universe, Adam grills him on how well he did grilling Brandon Doman after the loss to Boise State, and gets his take on Tom Holmoe's recent criticism of Riley Nelson.
Matt then joins Adam to pay homage to the year 1987. But more importantly, they discuss the scheduling announcements of games with Virginia and Michigan, conference expansion rumors, the weak November schedule, and they answer a bevy of questions from the #Tweetbag.
