PodcastGrant’s Tomb

5 months ago41 min

Recorded the day before UD’s 77-72 season-ending loss to VCU, the boys (God willing) are back with one last cast for the road. Donny, Blackie and Sully review the regular season and look ahead to next year’s campaign. The gentlemen discuss what the conference will look like next season and where the Flyers fit in. The top three — where would they like to see the A10 Tournament hosted? The highs and lows of a...

Sully, Blackburn and Vines form the three-man weave for this week’s podcast with Matt from Hawk Hill Hardwood to discuss tomorrow night’s matchup with St. Joe’s. The gentlemen quickly review the Sock Hop Massacre without getting too fired up about it. Matt comes on and breaks down Phil Martelli’s team and discusses the A10 at large. Super times.

Sully gets ambitious and records a, BBR-record, second podcast in one week, this time with loyal reader of the BBR and VCU fanatic, Mat Shelton-Eide. The boys sit down around the virtual campfire, as they have been known to do, to talk all things UD and VCU. They open the cast discussing how the General Grant is viewed by our rivals to the east and quickly move into just how bad the Richmond Spiders are...

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...

Three man weave time. The gentlemen break down the Ball State escape, discuss first impressions, give daps to John Crosby and emotionally breaks down the final play of the game. A quick look ahead to the GILDAN CHARLESTON CLASSIC, some Archie Miller schadenfreude and Blackburn is in Twitter jail.

The first podcast of the season kicks off with a bang, relatively speaking. Donny and Sully run this one, immediately bringing on “Robbie from Ball State” to break down tomorrow night’s game. Robbie discusses the recent rise of the BSU program, the Cards’ playing style and what we can expect from Ball State when we tip on Friday. (Sully appears to be a total dick, cutting off our man Robbie repeatedly, which I’m told is...

One last, we promise, go around for the Blackburn Review podcast. The boys, sans Donnie, discuss their reactions to the Anthony Grant hire and what the future holds in the Gem City. Then, they get to your takes. We want to thank all the people that called, it was nice to hear from the Flyer Faction for a change. If we didn’t get your call on we apologize. The season’s final Hot or Not breaks...

Just when we thought we were out, Archie pulls us back in. With the head man headed to Bloomington, an emergency cast just had to transpire. So much content squeezed into this one, you’re not even going to believe it. The podcast gets off to a rousing start, as Gem City legend F. Zappa gives us his thoughts on the Archie departure. Zappa, to be sure, brings the heat. The gentlemen provide their emotional reactions...

The end of season recap is finally here with another foursome to close out what ended an extremely up-and-down season. The boys go right into a breakdown of the Flyers first-round loss to Wichita State. Kevin quickly recounts his trip to Indy and discusses what is still bothering him from the game’s second-half — that Sam Miller, John Crosby and Ryan Mikesell were on the court at the same time. Would a healthy Josh Cunningham...

Another foursome as the Blackburn Review records what could be the last podcast of the season. Sully starts off the cast with a summation of his experience in the Steel City this past weekend. The boys revisit UD’s disheartening loss to Davidson in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament. KT wants to know — who is the goddamn leader of this team? Blackburn gloats a bit as his prediction for the Flyers came true.  Donny...

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...

It’s HATE WEEK, as the Flyers prepare to take on VCU on Wednesday. Dayton has the opportunity to win its first outright regular-season A10 title, so the boys had to bring back Mat from VCU Ram Nation.com to break down this week’s YUGE contest at the Arena. The trio quickly recaps the weekend’s action: VCU lost a tough one on the road to Rhode Island and Dayton escaped with a miracle win over Davidson. Close...
