We told you we would be coming back in full force for the new year, so Sully tag teams a podcast with good friend of the blog, Ian Nolan. Ian covers St. Bonaventure basketball for his blog, TheBonaBlog.com from the warmer temps of Austin, TX.
Sully opens up with the series history between Bonaventure and UD, and the boys hint that things might be different this time around. Ian gives the listeners some insight into the growth of the program under Mark Schmidt, and where you might find him and his staff after home games in Olean. They dissect the revelation that St. Bonaventure might not be all that bad of a mid-major job, and then quickly pivot to talking about Bonaventure’s rise to relevance and the expectations they have going into conference play.
The boys briefly analyze the game under the lense of the Bonnies being better than UD in most categories right now. Both parties pick the Bonnies to steal one in Dayton.
Ian closes by giving us his top 5 most hated programs for Bonaventure, Sully says “um” a lot for some reason. Ian asks for a deep cut of Fleetwood Mac to close the cast, Sully instead really liked the transition he created for The Chain while audio editing, so he just went with that instead of a deep cut.
The LOWD ambassador of Chicago, Sully has spent his life tirelessly watching UD hoops. Welcomer of all takes, hot and cold.
