Podcast: Off the Rails, Off to Pittsburgh

For the second time in BR Podcast history, a four-man recording is attempted. The results are mixed. The foursome quickly dives into the week that was — UD’s uplifting victory over VCU, Sully provides an intimate recap, and the deflating loss to close the regular season at George Washington. Blackburn randomly brings up the suicide of Larry Cook. The net-cutting ceremony is discussed, an event that exposed what an absolute weirdo Archie Miller is.

Donny brings up the fact that LOWD went national during the VCU game, which might signal the end of the movement. Kevin explains the humor that comes with a Google search of the Arch-Baron Cup. The subject is changed quickly, as the fellows review the loss in Foggy Bottom. The boys get tired of discussing regular season basketball real quickly, the conversation shifts to the A10 Tournament this week in Pittsburgh.

Blackburn offers up a prediction that surely won’t come back to haunt him. Sully counters Blackie’s silly take, stating emphatically that the Flyers are the clear cut favorites to cut down the nets in the Steel City. Predictions are made, feelings are shared — Kevin points out that Archie is returning to his hometown, so what could go wrong? Tom and Don won’t believe UD can with the conference tournament until it actually happens.

Donny hits the brakes on the conference tourney talk and puts the focus on everyone’s favorite topic, NCAA tournament seeding. The gentlemen are still not over the way UD got royally fucked in the 2015 tournament selection process. Where will Dayton watch the selection show this year, this is a major conversation piece for the crew. Was Scoochie Smith’s YouTube commitment announcement taken down? Can anyone find it? Donoher asks the assembled: is this year’s Flyer squad your favorite ever?

The show’s wrap up finally comes, and not soon enough. Sully, a Pittsburgh native, breaks down what Batman’s home has to offer after the games are over. Sully disappears and this has everyone frightened. Blackburn recommends that everyone go watch Striking Distance. Yacht Rock choice this week: Rusted Root, Send Me on My Way, which I don’t think is even Yacht Rock.
