101: Zags Preview, Ziggy turns heads

We know you missed us on our week off, but we make up for it by covering 95.7% of all BYU sporting news.

First up, we preview Gonzaga, and state the obvious: the Zags are really good, and BYU is not as good. We then make room on the Ezekiel Ansah bandwagon for a host of new riders from the national media. Other questions answered on this podcast: What will the new offensive coaching staff mean for BYU football in 2013? And is Tom Holmoe being clear enough on Twitter about BYU's intentions regarding the Big 12? We also answer your #Tweetbag questions.


100: Greg Wrubell on hoops and Jay Monsen

It's a super-sized 100th episode filled with facts.

Fact: The Rise & Shout podcast is now 100 episodes old. Fact: Greg Wrubell comes on the podcast for his 13th time, which makes him kind of a regular. Greg chats about whether it's a fact that BYU is out of March Madness contention, and whether it's a fact that BYU is just not deep enough after Brandon DaviesTyler Haws, and Matt Carlino. He also pays tribute to legendary BYU sports announcer Jay Monsen.

Fact: Matt then joins the podcast. Fact: They talk a lot of baseball, which is really awesome (opinion), including the reversal of fortunes between Matt's teams (the Nationals) and Adam's team (the Red Sox). Fact: They answer a lot of #Tweetbag questions. Fact: This episode is really long. Fact: It's super awesome.


99: Jay Drew on football recruiting, Carlino

In the 99th episode of the greatest BYU sports podcast produced in Minnesota, we welcome back Jay Drew of the Salt Lake Tribune. We chat with him about the football recruiting class, Robert Anae's offensive coaching staff (or lack thereof) and the resurgent Matt Carlino.

Matt and Adam then revisit their worst sports movie discuss, and decide which movie from 1999 they'd take with them if stuck on a desert island. The boys also discuss recruiting, and wonder if Carlino's upside is what we thought it might be a year ago.
