Free Ira Brown! And So It Begins . . .

It’s the time of year when we all give thanks: for family, friends, health, a comfy couch and a tryptophan-induced nap.

This year, in the year to end all years, we get to give thanks not just for Gonzaga basketball, but while watching Gonzaga basketball. And what better way to prepare yourself for some mid-morning holiday hoops than the latest episode of Free Ira Brown?

Yes, the FIB crew is back, and we thought given the excitement around the game with Kansas (Kansas!) we’d bring in someone smarter than us to lend a hand. Enter: Steven Karr from The Slipper Still Fits. Karr helps us break down how Gonzaga matched up with the Jayhawks and what we can expect from a team which lost two second-team All Americans and is still ranked in the top 5 (a note: we recorded this before the news broke about Tennessee and Andrew Nembhard).

We’ll also turn our attention to a re-tooling Auburn team, Gonzaga’s second matchup in Fort Myers, and look ahead to the Gonzaga women taking on the nation’s top-ranked team, the South Carolina Gamecocks.

And finally, we’ll share a few things we’re thankful for as we edge ever closer to piles of mashed potatoes, spoonfuls of gravy and hopefully some roasted Jayhawk.

All that and more on the latest episode of Free Ira Brown, THE Gonzaga Hoops Podcast. Do come give thanks with us, won’t you?
