I can't pretend like I'm not still at least a little pissed about how the football season ended, and maybe that's why on the Dubcast this week my inflection is tinged with just a slight bit of irritation as Chris and I talk about the Heisman trophy ceremony, Desmond Howard being a pud, and new defensive coordinator hire Jim Knowles.
At least one of those things is unequivocally cool and good (and also very likely a direct result of Ryan Day being an avid Dubcast listener), but this is a basketball podcast now, suckers! Holtmann and company are on a roll, and that's why I'm glad that while Andy is having Florida adventures, we've got resident basketball mega-fan Chris on to help us figure out how that's happened.
Plus, Ask Us Anything (which, as always, you can do by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org) takes us to the movies, and I once again must emphasize that The Muppets' Christmas Carol is a perfect holiday film for all ages.
RUN OF THE SHOW
0:00 Ehhh, the Heisman! It's whatever, C.J. Stroud probably deserved better than 4th.
11:45 Desmond Howard's comments were predictably dumb, but if you're a fan of kicking the Michigan rivalry up a notch, that'll do it!
19:07 Jim Knowles was the best possible hire Ryan Day could've made, and also the most necessary hire he had to make.
35:25 Basketball, baby! What makes this team tick, besides the obvious answer of Zed Key finger guns?
59:05 DO YOU THINK THAT'S BECAUSE MY DAD WAS A GREEK SODA POP MAKER, OR IS IT BECAUSE I'M AN AMERICAN SPY???
