Jerry Hill talks Matt Rhule, Baylor MBB + More; Hunter Atkins on Rockets + Astros

Baylor Bear Insider Jerry Hill joins Austin and Jeremy to discuss Matt Rhule’s first few months on campus before breaking down the on-court success of Baylor men’s and women’s basketball heading into March Madness.

Contributor Hunter Atkins then joins Austin for a full-length discussion on the Rockets playoff push and an early look at the Astros during Spring Training.

The show would not be complete without Austin and Jeremy discussing the NFL Combine and John Ross’ blazing 40-yard dash and notable player absences from the marquee event. Then the guys discuss SpaceX and Elon Musk’s bold plans to send private citizens around the moon, Uber’s scheme to deceive authorities worldwide, and The Ringer’s best fast food items in America.

Matt Mosley (Dallas Morning News + Texas Monthly) talks Baylor football + basketball; Tom Herman to Texas

Welcome to Episode 70 of the podcast, we hope you survived Black Friday (we barely did).

The guys open the show by discussing the fallout from Tom Herman’s move to the 40 acres in Austin and what it means for the future of the football program at U of H.

Dallas Morning News and Texas Monthly columnist Matt Mosley then calls in to discuss the coaching vacancy at Baylor and why Colorado’s Mike MacIntyre is the ideal candidate for the job. Mosley then opines on Tom Herman’s move to Texas, why it isn’t necessarily a homerun hire for the Longhorns, and what U of H should look for in a new head coach (hint: Row the Boat). Lastly, Mosley analyzes Baylor basketball’s hot start following a come-from-behind win over Louisville in the Bahamas.

Kevin had dinner plans (or perhaps was still sulking over Herman’s departure on Saturday) so Austin and Jeremy wrap up the show and recap the college football landscape and the various coaching vacancies within the state of Texas.

Lastly, we encourage all of our listeners to visit our iTunes page and leave a five-star review — we know it’ll make Kevin feel better after Tom Herman left him at the alter. And remember guys, no matter who you are, where you go or what you do, always, ALWAYS brew responsibly.
