132: A Bad Weekend in BYU Sports

The boys walk you through a tough weekend for BYU sports fans. What should we take away from the disheartening loss to Washington in the Fight Hunger Bowl? Are Bronco or Robert Anae be on the hot seat? Should they be? They also look forward into what we might expect from the 2014 season.

It doesn't look any prettier when they talk hoops, and that was before the Cougs lost their second straight conference game. What's to blame for this terrible stretch? Can the Cougars recover?

And finally, they finish previewing all the bowl games from New Year's Day on.


130: Bowl preview and hoops barometer

The boys are back! After several business trips and a crashed hard drive, the Rise & Shout podcast returns to preview the Fight Hunger Bowl as only they can: with shallow analysis and almost witty banter. They talk about the poor play by the Cougars in the final four games of the season and whether that will spill over into the bowl game. They give over/unders and make final predictions. And they disagree. 

Then it's time to check on hoops. A couple things to know: losing to Utah is not a big tragedy; Tyler Haws, Kyle Collinsworth and Erik Mika are awesome; and Matt Carlino is exactly who we thought he was: an extremely talented by enigmatic point guard. 

And then they preview all of the bowl games through New Years Eve in the shallowest and least analytical way possible.
