Today, in one of our most serious episodes, we discuss an incredibly important topic: domestic violence and sexual assault in sports. Recorded on International Women’s Day, we tackle the inefficiencies of the criminal justice system and collegiate/professional sports teams/leagues in responding to a growing crisis. One in four women in the US will become a victim of domestic violence; sports present a unique platform to raise awareness about this staggering statistic, and they provide opportunities to stand with these victims in an effort to effect change. This show is a must listen.
After a week off, we are back at it with the sports discussion! On today’s show, we break down the epic Thunder-Warriors overtime thriller from the weekend, analyze some sleeper teams in college basketball as the NCAA Tournament looms, and talk about all of the big news from the NFL Scouting Combine!
While Tyler soaks up some sun in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Gaylan delivers a “Jim Rome-style” episode and breaks down Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos’ 24-10 Super Bowl 50 victory over Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. Specifically, he discusses Peyton’s legacy, Denver’s dominant defensive performance (and compares it to the ’85 Chicago Bears), and Cam Newton’s lack of leadership on the sport’s biggest stage.
We preview Super Bowl 50, discuss the future of the NFL Pro Bowl, and preview the upcoming Thunder vs. Warriors game.
We discuss the recent news of match fixing in professional tennis, Thunder/Nike re-branding rumors, the NFL conference championship games from the past weekend, and the coaching carousel in the NFL!
We discuss the AFC and NFC Championships, the NBA All-Star starters, and the state of the Oklahoma State basketball program.
