On a (Coaching) Carousel

The Bandwagon crew goes full nerd for NCAA basketball, with much discussion regarding the coaching merry-go-round, PLUS bracket talk with ESPN analyst (and U of I alum) John Gasaway. Some professional soccer is thrown in for balance.

Who You Calling Granny?

The crew devotes some serious minutes to the virtues (or lack thereof) of baseball's intentional walk, and goes long on granny style. Yes, we know we're mixing our sports metaphors.

Aussie Blues

An interview with a journalist from the Daily Illini about an epic longform piece he wrote regarding concussions in female athletes; #Fedal and more at the Australian Open; why the Williams sisters are such an intriguing sports rivalry (hint: sisters); defining "over". BANDWAGON AT FULL STRENGTH, Y'ALL.

Just Say Maybe

The Bandwagon team is once again Better Tate Than Never! Discussed: The effects of the election on pro sports, and the use of marijuana (as opposed to opioids) as a painkiller by athletes. Um, no relation. There's a rivalry and some social media discussion, too.

World Serious

Bandwagoneer John Steinbacher's off to Disney World, so Brian and Lisa welcome a special guest host to BNDWGN HQ. There's much to discuss: The new NBA season, what happened at the end of the WNBA's season, a national anthem update, a hardcore professional basketball rivalry, and unless we have collectively jumped dimensions, the Cubs are playing baseball at the end of October. For real.
