G-Galore 26: Rocky Top Debacle; guests Jason Floyd & Jay Greeson
The Silly Season is ongoing and it’s an unmitigated disaster in Knoxville. Brian gives his opinions on UF landing Dan Mullen and the latest from Rocky Top. Jason Floyd of The MMA Report and RadioInfluence.com is our first guest, jumping on at the 48-minute mark. The timing of Jason’s appearance is perfect because he works for the Buccaneers, lives in Tampa and is an FSU fan. Therefore, he has information on Greg Schiano and Willie Taggart, who appears to be FSU’s choice if Jimbo Fisher bolts for College Station. Floyd, along with Gamb Lou, are our go-to guys on the UFC as well, so we discuss plenty of Saturday’s UFC 218 card. Finally, Jay Greeson of The Chattanooga Times Free Press joins the fun at the 1-hour & 6-minute mark. Jay is an Auburn grad, so he has opinions on the SEC Championship Game, in addition to the futures of Gus Malzahn and Bruce Pearl. He also has plenty to say about UT’s coaching search that couldn’t possibly have been scripted any worse. Hope you enjoy Games Galore 26!
CORRECTION: I incorrectly said that the KU seniors under Roy Williams (before he finally left for Chapel Hill) lost either in the Final Four or Elite Eight. They lost to Syracuse in the 2003 finals. I remember Hakim Warrick blocking Hinrich’s 3 from the corner for the tie on the last possession, but it wasn’t coming to me on the air.
