MGoPodcast 8.16: Fair But Mean


Mmmm potential rebound [Bryan Fuller]

Our recording got cut off before we did the intro and outro so David had to record those at home.

We Couldn’t Have One Without the Other

We get to make audio content because we can afford the studio time and equipment to make it happen, and that’s thanks to the people running ads between segments.

The show is presented by the Bo Store, UGP & Moe's, and if it wasn’t for Rishi and Ryan we probably would have real jobs.

The others: Homesure Lending, Ann Arbor Elder Law, the Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown, the University of Michigan Alumni Association, Deo Bookkeeping, Michigan Law Grad, Defensive Drivers Group, and Peak Wealth Management.

1. Bandwagon Basketball Podcast

starts at 1:00

The bandwagon for this Beilein team has a lot of room, since Ace’s is the only ass to remain in its seat through the bad times, and it’s a rather scrawny one. Defense is alright, offense is as good as the best of ’em. Talk every starter and how each has developed this year. Why two stretch bigs makes Michigan a tough ask to defend.

2. Finding a Seed

starts at 30:00

Disgust over the Minnesota game lingers: what that game could cost this team in the postseason. Appreciation for Northwestern’s commitment to drama (and Econ homework).

3. Gimmicky Top Five Developments You’d Like to See in Spring Football

starts at 46:30

Wilton Speight to the NFL, people saying the best recruit in the country is good, prophesies that might make Penn State fans, and more Glasgows.

4. A Grim Hockey Talk

starts at 1:05:16

David Nasternak, who’s been covering hockey for us this year, sits in to talk about how the bottom finally fell out, and what’s really up with this program right now. Fandom endurance badges to anyone who sticks around for all of it.

You guys should stop pretending that Ace was there "through the bad times."  As I noted last time you said this, Ace's first Illinois Game Recap wasn't there, just a post titled "John Beilein Hot Seat Possibility" that ended with "his recruiting and defensive coaching may lead to a change sooner than anyone could've reasonably expected not so long ago."  The ensuing MD recap concluded that “this team so rarely puts it all together that it's becoming harder and harder to hold out hope for a strong run through Big Ten play.”  This was all despite being a "numbers guy" and an obvious reason for the losses were that teams were hitting an unsustainable percentage of threes against us.  This revisionist history now is weak sauce.

Podcast articles get picked up by the stream. If you find it in iTunes you'll actually read the original draft that was uploaded, plus the first few comments. Anything that goes into a feed has to check out by the feed's own logic, so the fewer add-ons and whatnot you have running the better.
