First things first: Lewis Franklin (brolewis here and on Twitter) and I laid this audio down in the wake of the Texas game nearly two weeks ago. I apologize for that. I was intending to try and edit it while out on vacation, but I underestimated the amount of time and energy I'd have while being active all day and then tending to two children under the age of 4 afterwards. Right after getting home last weekend I was waylaid by illness, so I didn't get to finish editing until today. I'm sorry about that.
Lewis has a genuine passion for the Lady Bears that stems from his time at Baylor when Coach Mulkey joined the program and took it to never-before seen heights. He's been a big fan ever since, and his care for the sport is evident in both his writing and this podcast.
At any rate, Lewis was kind enough to join me on the podcast to talk a little bit about the Baylor Women's basketball team, their recent successes, the expectations of this team both heading into the season and where they stand right now. Despite losing two of the most prolific players in the game in consecutive seasons, the women currently sit atop the Big 12 with an 18-1 record and are the #3 ranked team in the nation by both polls. One minor correction he wanted me to point out: TCU lost their coach to K-State, not WVU to TCU. If I had an ODB coin for every time I'd been been wrong on the podcast....
A huge thanks to Brother Lewis for doing this, our very first podcast dedicated to Women's Basketball! I'm thinking we'll probably do another one as the NCAA tournament approaches, so be on the lookout for that!
With football offseason in full swing, we'll most likely be ramping up some Basketball podcasts in the coming weeks to get you ready for the end of the Big 12 season, the Big 12 Tournament, and the NCAA tournament. Like I said, we'll probably do another podcast dedicated to the women also. National Signing Day is this week, so I imagine that Mark, Prashanth and I will break that down at some point. Spring football will provide some topics, but if there's anything Baylor-related that you'd like to see on the podcast, I'd greatly appreciate your suggestions. The offseason is dark and full of terrors, but we're striving to get you through it and keep your ears entertained throughout. If you have suggestions, please leave them in the comments, tweet them to me, or leave me feedback at OurDailyPodcast(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks folks!
Be sure to throw Lewis a follow on Twitter! He will sell you on an AeroPress coffee maker in no time flat.
