We won't lie, it's not been the best of weeks here at Free Ira Brown. So in order to prevent our heroes from overdosing on their preferred coping mechanisms (Marty: watching the Seahawks...er...um...never mind; Chris: bourbon & puppy-kicking; Adam: Alanis Morrissette karaoke), we brought in a special guest. Our latest offering (Season 2, Episode 14) has a member of the House McCarthey - yes, those McCartheys -- to help us dissect the BYU cluster (breathe...deep breath...breathe), share stories from the road and get a little insight on what it's like to be so close to the Gonzaga program.
Those stories, plus we acknowledge the "game" against San Diego, take the briefest of looks toward Pacific and then there's that small matter of this week's trip to Moraga to face the Mouth Breathers. The G*els, ranked ahead of Gonzaga in the latest Bracketology, more efficient than us in KenPom, receiving more votes in the AP Poll. Are they a serious threat to our crown? Are their numbers for real or are they artificially inflated against perhaps the softest of softy soft soft schedules? We'll let you decide. No, wait, that's a lie. We definitely decide.
We also end the pod with our individual Top 3 (Bottom 3?) most disappointing sporting moments where Chris may or may not fly off the handle. If that doesn't get you to listen to Free Ira Brown, THE Gonzaga Hoops Podcast, perhaps nothing will. Do tune in, won't you?
