G-Galore 27: Silly Season Rewind; guests Trey Wallace & Russell Smith
Brian touches on a slew of topics in the introductory segment ranging from college football, the NFL, college hoops, the NBA and UFC 218. Next, Trey Wallace of the Read-Optional.com joins Games Galore 27 (at the 22-minute, 35-second mark) from Nashville. Trey fills us in on a number of things from the coaching searches at Florida and Tennessee, in addition to the lack of interest in Louisville’s Bobby Petrino. Trey thinks the Gators are in great shape moving forward under the leadership and direction of AD Scott Stricklin and new head coach Dan Mullen. After Brian laments on several Bad Beats in basketball this week, we welcome Russell Smith to the show (1-hour, 10-minutes and 30 seconds) from Knoxville. Smith, who is the host of The Drive on 101.5 FM Fox Sports Knoxville from 3:00-6:00 p.m. Eastern Monday–Friday, recaps the madness of the last two weeks for Tennessee fans. In the end, Smith endorses the hire of Pruitt (as did Wallace), especially considering how it could’ve been Greg Schiano or Dave Doeren. Smith also hits on the Vols’ men’s hoops team, which cracked the national rankings this week and has a sold-out home game against North Carolina on Dec. 17.
