  • The start of his media career
  • Life at Bearcat Journal
  • The craziness of the BCJ conference expansion threads
  • Balancing his relationship with UC
  • His biggest scoops
  • His favorite players to cover
  • His favorite games to cover
  • His favorite moment as a member of the media
  • The recruitment of Gary Clark
  • EXCLUSIVE: What exactly Tu Holloway said to start the Xavier brawl
  • EXCLUSIVE: Why CBS reported that Brian Kelly was interested in the Notre Dame job immediately after the conclusion of the Pitt game
  • Mick Cronin’s change in philosophy
  • The Xavier, Florida, UCLA stretch
  • Predictions for the season
  • Somehow, even more

Thanks again to Chad for taking the time to join us. This ended up being one of my favorite podcasts we’ve done, and I expect it to be one of our most popular.
