In the aftermath of Baylor’s win over Texas Tech and the Bedlam game, we were originally looking at the possibility of recording on Sunday afternoon. We postponed, and boy are we glad that we did! What ensued were 28ish of the wildest hours we’ve ever seen of coaching carousel action, with Lincoln Riley bolting Oklahoma for USC and Brian Kelly heading to LSU from Notre Dame. What will the next spins of the carousel bring us?
Fortunately for you, we’re recording twice this week! Well, THREE times! Today we bring you this show, which was intended to be based around the win over Tech and Bedlam. Tomorrow, you’ll get the final Basketpod with Kendall, and then Thursday we’ll drop the Big 12 Championship Game preview episode. Fun times!!
