The BBR Podcast returns for episode 4 to recap (briefly) the first 3 games of the season. The new guy, Drew, joins Sully as they chop up what went right, and what the Flyers need to fix before playing down in the Bahamas. The boys bring on a special guest, Lukas Harkins, (who covers the Butler Bulldogs on the FanSided Network) to give his analysis of what the Flyers can expect when Butler comes calling...

Last night’s game between our hometown Flyers and the Mastadons of Purdue-Ft Wayne at UD Arena didn’t really feature a whole lot of defense…let’s start there. The Flyers faced their real first test of adversity on the young season as PFW snuck up on that ass and led the game in stretches; resulting in a halftime score of 47-42, the first time the Flyers have trailed at the break this year. They picked up the...

A new season is upon us and I’ve been singularly focused on something very troubling the past few weeks: the Wahlberger family opened a hamburger chain simply because “burger” appears in their last name. There’s no passion, there’s no joy, it’s a business predicated on convenience (and no one seems to care!). If your last name is Primavera, it doesn’t necessarily mean your life’s mission is to own and run a restaurant that only serves...

Some of the readers may recall the St. Bonaventure recap from the Arena a year ago. That night, Sully reached out to Twitter asking someone who was going to be at the game to write the recap, I volunteered my services and gave you, in this humble writers opinion, the best game recap from a season ago. Fast forward to Tuesday of this past week and Sully asked me if I would like to contribute to...

To keep things rolling right into the start of the Flyers season, Sully and Blackburn catch up with WHIO’s finest, John Bedell to talk some hoops. The boys start off by talking about the mountain of off-the-court issues the Flyers ran into last year, and how this season might be a little different. Blackburn makes multiple attempts to get the gang off the rails, but a professional like Bedell never wavers. Blackburn concludes that AG...

The gang gets back together for a 4-man weave podcast, celebrating the kickoff of the 10th season of the Blackburn Review. Things go off the rails almost immediately (as they always do) and the boys get right into all the old stories that have kept them, and you, and all of us, entertained for a full decade. Photobooth girl is mentioned, the early days of the blog in the pre-twitter era, walk-ons, posts gone awry,...

I really just dont know, guys As of this writing, Dayton basketball is a mere 26 days away, so I got to supposin’ it’s time to talk about what we have here. It’s true what you’ve heard, DURRELL Davis has moved on from the University of Dayton, degree in-hand, and a new chapter of hoops must begin in his stead. At the very least, the expectations for this season (on the whole) will be far...
