Black Heart Gold Podcast 134

April 4th, 2014

It's a rare double-podcast week, but that's what Wrestlemania does for us. For the second installment of our Wrestlemania 30 preview, we're joined by Dan Vecellio (@djvecellio), Adam Collyer (@AdamCollyer), and Bill DiFilippo (@bflip33), contributors all at SB Nation Penn State blog Black Shoe Diaries. As if that weren't enough, longtime Friend of the Pants and Wrestling Blog proprietor Tom Holzerman (@tholzerman) is also on the line.  It's insane how much time we can spend talking about fake sports.

The gang gets together to preview the most important fake sporting event of the year, Wrestlemania 30. Vint, Jacobi, and Ross are joined by BHGP commenter and wrestling fan extrordinaire Smokin' Herb Grigsby to talk about battles royal, H's Triple, and Bryans Daniel.  It's over an hour, so carve out some time.

We're joined this week by Chris Dobbertean (@chrisdobbertean) from SB Nation bracketology site Blogging the Bracket and SBNation dot com to talk Iowa basketball, the Big Ten, the disappearance of mid-majors, what the hell happened to SEC basketball, and more.  It's the best 30 minutes you'll spend all week.

Since we didn't play Penn State in football this year and we are finally playing them in basketball Saturday, Adam and Pat got together with a couple of old friends: The Artist Formerly Known as Run Up the Score (@pancakecatapult) and Kevin Powers (@thefolkist), editors emeritus at Black Shoe Diaries, beer-and-Wilco afficionados at Slow States, and current first-ballot Big Ten Blog Hall of Fame inductees.  That is, if they had such a thing.  We discuss Penn State basketball.  When that subject matter is exhausted four minutes later, we move onto the current state of PSU football, one of the conference's most interesting current topics.

After an extended break, the podcast returns to preview Tuesday night's hoopyball game against Michigan State. Adam and Pat are joined by Chris Vannini, one of the quartet of death at The Only Colors, contributor at Coaching Search dot com, and occasional columnist at the Detroit Free Press.  He also might be the tallest guy that Michigan State has available for Tuesday night.

The podcast returns to preview the Outback Bowl matchup with LSU. We're joined by Matt Harris (@MHarrisAdvocate) of the (Baton Rouge) Advocate, a man who grew up in Missouri and somehow ended up covering LSU athletics in Louisiana.  Sound is slightly intermittent throughout -- thanks again, Skype! -- but it's worth a listen. The man knows his stuff.

Oh yeah, and there's one-time-only Outback Bowl music. Enjoy.

And so we've come to the end of the road. Still, I can't let go.

And as I sit here typing this, I realize that Boyz 2 Men's "End of the Road" would be an incredible podcast theme song.  So many songs, so little time...

We're closing out the football regular season by talking Iowa-Nebraska with Brian Towle (@btbowling) of Corn Nation. Brian lives in Texas, and not even ironically.  There's a lot of brisket in Texas.  We talk about that.  Also Runzas.  You should listen.

It's Michigan week!  Celebrate with a man who has introduced more European terms for feelings to the college football lexicon than all others combined, Brian Cook of MGoBlogThey run too many zone plays!  Their offensive coordinator is predictable!  Their quarterback is kind of underwhelming!  It's basically 2011 Iowa!

It's that time of year: Our annual hoops preview podcast with Justin VanLaere (@storminspank), current contributor at Hawkeye Nation and former Pants author.  And, like every other time Justin's on the show, Jacobi is conveniently missing.  He claimed he had to walk his cat, which is ludicrous.
