Vine St. Hooligans - Ep. 12: NEBRASKETBALL Preview

Corn Nation's resident hoops expert David McGee joins the Hooligans as they preview all things NEBRASKETBALL. The crew also debates if Nebraska can ever be a "basketball school", discuss why fans have ZERO reasons to hype the football team as a playoff contender, and field their first ever call in the debut of the "Hometown Hooligan" feature.

Here's what the crew has in store for you on this jam-packed edition of the Vine St. Hooligans podcast:

  • The debut of the Hometown Hooligans segment: A fan calls into the show to rant about the Ray Rice situation and how society defines "masculinity"
  • The crew debates whether or not Terran Petteway has what it takes to cut it in the NBA and whether or not Nebraska can ever become a "basketball school"
  • Corn Nation's resident hoops expert and photographer David McGee joins the show to preview the upcoming basketball season
  • Nebraska's merits as a College Football Playoff team are scrutinized against all the teams ahead of them in the polls
  • Derek rants on message board logic: /brings up 7 yrs worth of data to support point; "Past performance doesn't predict future results!"; /asks why we bring up TO's record
  • Joe defends his Chelsea fandom and calls out his haters
  • Nick discusses the games to look forward to this basketball season

Thanks to ThunderGrunder and BeltwayBrett for taking a stab at last week's trivia question, but neither were correct. The answer they were looking for was the 2009 OU game when the team had 12 pass breakups.

Don't worry, you have another chance to win since the team is doing yet another trivia question on this week's show. Be the first to comment with the correct answer to the trivia question the team asks at the top of the show and you will win a free t-shirt. You're welcome.
