And now, the real (turkey) meat of Gonzaga’s schedule begins. Stuffed with top-100 (and hopefully top-10) teams the Bulldogs head down to the beautiful (and wet) Rose City for the PK 80 tournament in Portland, and Free Ira Brown has the main course and all the side dishes covered.

In the latest episode, our heroes take an in-depth look at Ohio State (including the return of two beloved segments), then break down the (hopeful, likely, probable, if-someone-doesn’t-screw-it-up) matchup with Florida. What would success look like? Will the Bulldogs end up playing Duke? What would constitute disappointment?

Those stories, plus we recap the wins over Howard (yawn) and Utah State (OHMYGODWEDIDN’TCOMPLETELYBLOWTHEMOUTRIGHTAWAYWHATISWRONGWITHANDWHYWERENONEOFUSONTWITTER!??!), take a quick trip around some early power rankings, we check in with the Gonzaga women and have a stern word for the editor of a certain Bulldogs-basketball-based Web site.

And finally, we turn our thoughts to Thanksgiving with a Top 3 in which Chris gets briefly movie catfished.

All this and more in the latest episode of Free Ira Brown, THE Gonzaga Hoops Podcast. Do join us in a pre-Turkey Day appetizer, won’t you?
