110: Greg Wrubell on the 2013-14 basketball roster

The podcast is back, with a long, long extended edition. We first welcome back Greg Wrubell to talk about the recruitment of non-LDS basketball players Frank Bartley and Chase Fisher. We ask Greg about what to expect from all the Cougar newcomers, and if the team will have enough depth on the frontline. We also discuss Bronco on Twitter, and if it's reasonable for BYU football fans to have high expectations for 2013.

Matt and Adam then get together to cover the following: Bill Connelly's except BYU football preview here on SB Nation; Riley Nelson's recent interview on KFAN; and they do a snake draft of their favorite Marvel comic book movies. And somehow, inexplicably, Matt outgeeks Adam.


109: Ziggy to the Lions, Bronco to Twitter

Ziggy Ansah was drafted at No. 5 to the Detroit Lions in the 2013 NFL Draft (something you probably knew). So we bring on Sean Yuille, the managing editor of SB Nation's Lions site PrideOfDetroit.com. Sean tells us his reaction to drafting Ansah that high, how fans have reacted, and what he makes of 3D glasses as a fashion accessory.

Matt then joins Adam to talk about Ziggy and the draft and to speculate where Kyle Van Noy may be drafted in 2014. They also discuss Bronco Mendenhall's emergence as a Twitter superstar, and why he might be the middle-aged, white Steve Urkel. The boys also give kudos to the BYU rugby and men's volleyball teams, discuss the awesomeness of Iron Man 3, and conduct their own draft of the best BYU players in the NFL.
