BBR Podcast Episode 13: Getting out of St Louis Alive

Sully opens the cast with the full story of the night in St Louis and the triumph for the Flyers to reclaim the Arch Baron Cup, and recaps the amount of shit he took for his fashion choices. Blackburn asks for the gory details of the weekend, and the boys talk about what that win means for the season as a whole.

After talking about Rodney Chatman’s recent slump, the conversation shifts to the upcoming game against Bonaventure around the 38:30 mark. The BBR boys open the studio doors to @SBUnfurled and @BonaCommenter to talk all things Bona. The fanbase, their drinking habits, Mark Schmidt and all the good guards that have gone through the program over the years.

The show closes with a solid A10 rundown, a trivia segment, and a story about the song that became the anthem of the 1984 Dayton Flyers team that made a run to the Elite 8.

    They actually used to play “Back to Life” during timeouts in the 3rd quarter at every home game in the early thousands. I believe it was during Finn and Waleskowski’s Junior and Senior seasons if I’m not mistaken. There was a male cheerleader who used to dance on the logo at mid-court during the timeout. I was an underclassmen and remember thinking I could dance better than that dude, haha.

    Back to Life was released in 1989 and was played at the arena during the 1990 season – Negele, Springer, Stormin Norman and boy’s run through X at the MCC championship and NCAA victory over the Illini before running into the Razorback’s buzz saw.

      Yeah, thats my bad, I was told on twitter afterwards that the information relayed to me was incorrect and it was, in fact, the song for the 1990 team.

        Sully, no harm no foul. Fake news is sometimes good news. Consider 1984 the year of the court rush with “The Shot”, the acceleration of the couch burn, dumpster burn and detached garage burn. The reason that there are no more detached garages in the ghetto is because the ones in the alley behind the 100 block of Lowes and Kief behind Milano’s were simultaneously torched after we beat #2 seed Oklahoma on St Pat’s day to advance to the E8 in 84. Dayton Fire Department turned the fire hoses on the crowd and a mud / rock fight ensued. But those were the days that you could walk into Milano’s and watch the broad grilling your sub smoking a butt over the grill braless with nipples protuding. Don’t get me going about the 1990 team late night escapades at Tims. It makes Dyshawn Pierre a choir boy.
        Yes there are some things that this team has not accomplished yet.
