Go Audio Awesome 2.08

October 16th, 2017

For most people, previewing Iowa basketball would involve, you know, actually previewing Iowa basketball.  For us and our unwitting accomplice Jeremiah Davis (@jeremiahdavis10), it's about recklessly speculating about who Fran narc'd on.  We did eventually get around to actual hoops talk, though.

It's Illniois Week, so we consulted the only Illinois football fan we know, Robert from IlliniBoard (@ALionEye).  Have you guys heard how young this team is?  Because it's like insanely young.  You should listen to find out, and also to learn whether Illinois has an actual rival and what an Iowa-Illinois traveling trophy might look like.

We regroup for Michigan State, a day later than usual but still intact.  This week, we're joined by Sparty superfan and The Athletic contributor Chris Vannini (@ChrisVannini), who gives us the skinny on the Spartans and acknowledges what we all know: That Kirk Ferentz and Mark Dantonio hate each other with the white hot fury of a thousand supernovas.

Afterwards, Adam and Pat recap Penn State and examine what it might mean for the rest of 2017.  Zooey Dechanel is involved for some reason.  Finally, we talk a bit about our friend and former guest Brian Towle, who passed away unexpectedly this week.

It's Penn State Week, which has meant nothing but pain on the gridiron over the last few years.  But it also means we get to talk with our friends at Roar Lions Roar to get ready, almost enough to make up for Saquon Barkley turning the corner more than Dale Earnhardt on Saturday.  Bill (@bflip33) and Dan (@djvecellio) answer all our questions and play along with our ridiculousness, including (probably incorrect) references to Schroedinger and Wittgenstein all within the same two minutes.

We woke up on Wednesday and realized something: We don't know anything about North Texas football.  It was so scary that Jacobi bailed on the rest of the week entirely, but it's cool because our football guy, Mike Jones, is here to help me ask uninformed questions of Denton Record-Chronicle and Dallas Morning News UNT beat reporter Brett Vito (@brettvito).  Once we were sufficiently scared of UNT's receivers against Iowa's secondary, Mike and Pat moved on to recapping Cy-Hawk and peeking ahead to Penn State.

It's Cy-Hawk Week, and if there's anything we've learned in all our years of doing this, it's that the X's and O's don't much matter.  So we passed on our usual discussion with CFB Analytics' Dan Becker (@_Danalytics) about ISU's quarterback and linebackers (at least until the end) and focused instead on the State of Cy-Hawk from the other side of the table.  Does the continuation of the series make sense for them?  Is Matt Campbell fundamentally changing the nature of their program?  Is he in it for the long haul if things go well?

Also, while we've got most of the audio issues worked out, Pat's audio is really loud on this one for some reason.  Apologies to your cubicle neighbor this morning.

It's finally Game Week, so we do what we always try to do: Find out just what we're facing next week.  Fortunately, longtime Wyoming beat writer/blogger Robert Gagliardi (@rpgagliardi) from Cowboy Chronicles and the excellently-named Wyoming Tribune Eagle and Laramie Boomerang.  After Robert scares us, Adam and I spend about ten minutes discuss our varying levels of terror headed into Week One.

It used to be that the last podcast of the basketball regular season would be to announce the Marchifornication bracket.  That's all changed now, because even in its down years, Iowa basketball is in the NCAA Tournament conversation. We're joined, as always, by our friend Chris Dobbertean (@ChrisDobbertean) of Blogging the Bracket, the SB Nation Tournament prediction site.  He's got Iowa out of the field now, but there's room for improvement.
