PodcastU. Dayton BasketballBBR Podcast Episode 19: The Final Airing of Grievances

Sully1 month ago32 min

The boys are back for the final time to air all of their grievances to you, the unsuspecting listeners of the Blackburn Review Podcast.

Sully kicks things off talking about his frustrations with the season as a whole, and the boys jump in to give their take on all things UD hoops from the season that was. Early on, Blackburn recaps his Potbelly-run-in with SLU Coach, Travis Ford, and KT implores all dumb people to be smarter.

All three of the lads look ahead to next year, and reminisce on what was a season full of missed opportunities with the conference looking up for the next basketball year in late 2019. KT brings up the dreaded x-named school, and Sully comes clean to the listeners that VCU is clearly a better program than UD right now.

To close the show, a hypothetical question is raised about who should get into the NCAA tournament, Sully brings up the current situation in Richmond for Tweet of the Week, and the show closes with the award-winning Hot or Not.

In the hypothetical portion of the show, we ask the question: What if you just took the best 64 teams in the NET? The crew at BBR took it upon themselves to create the bracket to see what it would look like before pondering the idea.

Sincerely, on behalf of all of us who are a part of this show at the Blackburn Review, thank you for listening and we promise to continue to make a better show for you next season.

Wear red, be #LOWD



The LOWD ambassador of Chicago, Sully has spent his life tirelessly watching UD hoops. Welcomer of all takes, hot and cold.

Thanks for all the work you do on the podcasts/blog all season. Job well done! I listened to the podcast driving to work this morning. Some final thoughts: 1) I find it funny you somehow blame UD fans for lack of success on the court. The fact they show up win or lose is a great thing, not a bad thing. It keeps the money rolling in, which allows for the possibility of success–not prevents it. 2) I still hear undercurrents from at least two of you that UD “settled” with Grant. Blackburn spoke to it when he gave a… Read more »

(1) Not blaming fans as a whole, merely pointing out the attitudes of some UD fans. Dayton’s fanbase is literally the reason the program should be achieving on a consistent basis in comparison to the rest of the league (2) No one wanted Archie to leave. UD absolutely settled with its hire of Grant, and that might be okay. Next two seasons will tell. (3) Fair (4) Ok (5) Again, talking more about the VCU fan culture/expectations than actual asses in the seats (6) Agreed, Richmond is a shitshow (7) Yes, absolutely eliminate conference tournaments and autobids. I understand the… Read more »
