The guys start the show by chewing over some options for the future of the podcast before delving into Mitch’s conundrum of heading to LA next weekend with his boys. A dynamic four-pack of guests beginning with Vermont basketball player Josh Speidel whose layup on senior night was worth much more than two points. Then, Thomas “Snacks” Lee basks in the glory of his viral long range triple in his hoops debut. Andrew Marchand swings by to chat about Tony Romo’s deal with CBS and the repercussions for other NFL networks. Finally, Jeff Goodman provides a college basketball with one week until Selection Sunday. As always, Mitch and Scott run down their laundry list which includes mic’ed up major leaguers, bracing for busted brackets, and Brian Williams’ bad math!
