End of Basketball Regular Season

Hope we can have a more uplifting show before the end of the year closeout on Memorial Day.  But this might be the last episode for awhile.

We start of with Tuffy and the Salute Crew.  Yes I said crew because new ground was broke for them with their first ever three person show.  Diving into what it would take for this K-State team to get to the Big Dance.

Speaking of what it will take to get into the big Dance, you’ll want to fight through the board control newb over at KMAN overlaying Lil Jon with the weekly can’t miss Cole Manbeck interview on ‘The Game’.  Cole states his case for as to why if K-State can beat Texas and then just simply make it to the championship game of the Big 12 tourney why 18-16 should work at the very end of the segment.  That was Wednesday, but yesterday they got some great sound bites from the MBB team out at the BBTF yesterday.  And if you wanted to back-track all the way to Monday to hear from Wyatt and the group, here’s that link too for Wildcat Insider.

I’ll be honest, I don’t know what kind of shenanigans the GPC group is up to this week.  At the moment I author this, I haven’t listened to their podcast.

Around the Conference

Well the team that really ruined the chance for KU’s streak ending — ISU, for both choking away one at home to Baylor to win it themselves, or to then come back from 21 down against OU on Monday to let them have a shot — has had a roller-coaster ride of late.  So we’ll check in with our friends at CycloneFanatic to get a sense for what that cy-ride is like.  And oh yea, they’ve started Spring Practices up in Ames too.  So here’s some extra content as well.

Since inconsistency is king here in the Big 12, here’s a show from the Baylor side of things from the folks over at Ourdailybears.com.

Want to know what the WVU faithful thought about their chances in Allen Fieldhouse before that meltdown Tuesday?  Here you go.  But plenty more to talk about like this weekend’s upcoming game vs OSU.

Blatanthomerism.com brings on folks from the student section to preview the upcoming conference basketball tournaments abound.

Happier times this week, following a win over the ever so hated Jayhawks.  So we’ll start the good vibes off with the Salute, shove you over to GPC, then top off with a little Cole Manbeck on KMAN.

But we finish up with a little more of a preview with the SB Nation folk of BringontheCats.com inviting the Widerightnattylite.com folk to join their show.

Around the Conference

Our friends turned disappointers up in Ames.  See how Cyclonefanatic is helping keep things rational after losing to Baylor.

So we check in with our buddy Allen Kenney to talk Jayhawks?  He asks the question is there really anything wrong with this year’s team and even taps into a little football talk towards the end.

David Smith & Co. do a little recap of beating Texas Tuesday and talk some bracketology as well.


Conference Play Week 8

It’s a very hands off approach this week in K-Stateland with the ridiculousness that the basketball season has turned into.  I don’t normally post written word here at EMAWdio.com, since we’re supposed to be all about the Audio, but I figured I would make an exception.  Mostly because it’s slim pickings.  Since I’m normally linking to theSalutePodcast.com for their show right here, I thought it would be appropriate to link to this, the main reason why Mike Tufano and Corey weren’t able to do an episode this week and a summation of where this basketball team sits.

The 1350 crew was cut short due to the BatCats playing out in Arizona (can they be our saving grace this year?), but maybe it was for the better as they ask: “where’s the effort?”

Around the Conference

First off, I wanted to say congratulations to Publisher/VP/Podcast host Chris Williams of CycloneFanatic.com and his wife whom welcomed a new baby girl into the world this past week.  Tonight was the first night he made an appearance able to do the Thursday night Cyclone Fanatic show live from Benchwarmers in Akeny.  They broke down the big road wins by both Men’s and Women’s teams with assistant coaches.

And Blatanthomerism.com helps give us a very very early look at possible CFP contenders for 2015.

Conference Play Week 7

Little easier to do a show when there’s at least 1 win out of the past 2.  Where does the season go from here?

Times are bleak for the men’s basketball program, that’s for sure.  So the tone of this week’s coverage is much the same.  So bleak, the guys over at the Salute named their latest episode ‘the funeral’.  But trust me past the first few minutes, there’s not much emphasis on that subject matter.  Give it a listen, it kind of makes sense.

If we check in over at KMAN and get a full rundown of exactly where this basketball team sits, and get Cole Manbeck’s take as well.

Around the Conference

First off, congratulations to Chris Williams of CycloneFanatic.com for getting his own radio show on KXNO.  But that won’t stop him from being his old self and throwing together a podcast on CF more than once a week with different guests (like Assistant Coaches).

Smoking Musket retooled their podcast logo this week, but also recapped their signing day in this episode.

I haven’t had a chance to listen to this one, but apparently the guys over at Ourdailybears.com, issued an ultimatum in their latest.

And I’ve been impressed with the variety in content that Blatanthomerism has been pumping out lately.  Especially this Big12 basketball episode with Fox Sports Southwest personality David Ubben.

Conference Play Week 6 + NSD 2015 Rundown

If you want to skip all of the negative basketball talk, then flip it to about the 36 minute mark for the National Signing Day recap of the 2015 football recruiting class.

With National Signing day, comes so much coverage!  So let’s get started.

We’ll start with the major radio networks around the state.  First off the easiest cop-out is 810 WHB, as their podcast page doesn’t allow me to link to individual podcast.  Though I would encourage you to run through all of the three major shows.  Heck you’ll be surprised about what the Rivals Southeast region recruiting coordinator has to say about Duke Shelley.

Up 69 highway from 810 is of course their competitor 610 KCSP.  First off they hit up our old friend Rob Cassidy.  Then they finish off their day talking to Kellis Robinett.

If you took 69 highway in the opposite direction to the SE corner of the state, you’d find ESPN 100.7 out of Pittsburg interviewing Rivals’ Randy Withers 

We move our way west to Topeka and 580 WIBW where I’ll sneak in this Bruce Weber interview post Texas Tech game.  They must have changed their podcast page, impossible to find.  How I found the Weber interview despite that, I don’t know.

Even further west is of course 1350 KMAN, and they have the best comprehensive coverage in the Powercat Gameday recruiting special.  They day before they too spoke to Rob Cassidy.  And today they of course dipped into the Texas Tech debacle, the weekly check in with Cole Manbeck and the Sporting KC news.

Onto the blogs, GPC offers part one of their recruiting day coverage for free, but only subscribers can access parts 2 and 3.  Fair enough.

You can find your way to thesalutepodcast.com on your own.  They had a show this week, but it was pre-Texas Tech and NSD.

Around the Conference

As you can imagine CycloneFanatic.com has their own breakdown of their 2015 recruiting class.

Blatanthomerism.com does the same.

A breakdown of the Texas Tech recruiting class on doubleT1043 with assistant football coach Trey Haverty.

You have to fish a little to find it, but baylor’s sports website has a video of the behind the scenes on NSD here.

Here’s Mike Gundy’s press conference on Signing Day.

And lastly a WVU hype video of their recruiting class.
