98: brandon gurney on recruiting, and the 2013 schedule

In Episode 98 it's the year 1998, and we Usher on Brandon Gurney of the Deseret News to talk recruiting. We chat with him about the ones that got away this year, but dig more into the one's that will wear Cougar blue, including those who could make an immediate impact. He also discussions why he believes the Hawaii series was cancelled.

Adam and Matt then Get Ziggy With It and discuss the freaky athlete's rising draft stock. They also rank their top 5 toughest games on the 2013 schedule, and no, Idaho State does not make the list (sorry Bengals fans). They conclude with a discussion of the basketball team's diminishing tourney chances and play a game of Answering Machine.


97: SMC heartbreak, Gonzaga preview

t's episode 97, and Adam and Matt get together to chat about things. They try not to talk too much about Manti T'eo and imaginary things, but some of it slips in. They relive the heartbreak that is Matthew Dellavedova, and preview the big Gonzaga game. And they handicap the Cougars' chances of dancing in March.

Then it's on to a discussion about Ty Detmer as a potential QB coach, and Matt thinks Adam ranked the 2012 season too highly. All this and Matt professes his love for musicals on a podcast you don't want to miss.


96: SMC Preview and football coaching staff changes

In the 96th episode of the podcast, Matt and Adam get together to discuss many things. They answer a lot of #Tweetbag questions, including several about the offensive coaching staff changes and what that means for the 2013 football team. They also talk a little scheduling and a little NFL playoffs.

It's on to basketball after that, leading off with a discussion about where Tyler Haws may end up on the all-time BYU scoring list after it's all said and done. They also preview the St. Mary's match-up.

And finally, it's a discussion of the worst sports movies of all time, and many references to the year 1996.


95: Greg Wrubell on Anae and hoops

So much has happened since the last podcast that it took us 70 minutes to cover it all!

First up, it's Greg Wrubell making his record-shattering 12th appearance on the podcast. Wow! He chats with us about Robert Anae's return to BYU and what that might mean for the offense. He also sings the praises of the BYU men's basketball team and their resurgence, which is timed perfectly for WCC play.

Matt joins Adam after that to answer your #Tweetbag questions, ridicule SDSU, get excited about the return of Kyle Van Noy and Cody Hoffman, debate Anae's return, and to discuss the BCS championship game. And yes, they talk about the seemingly endless dynasty of Alabama, and the possible one-hit wonder season of Notre Dame.
