Episode 3: Inside the Bearcats Podcast

| No TrackBacks
In the midst of all the Crosstown Shootout craziness, it seemed time to take a look at the rivalry and analyze the past, present and future. There is nobody better to do that with than former UC Bearcat player, current UC analyst for Fox Sports Ohio and one of the future featured faces of the program, Terry Nelson.

Nelson was great as our topics floated around between how the rivalry has changed over the years and why it's become so hostile lately to some of the great trash talkers in the history of the rivalry and how people get under each other's skin. Nelson, of course, was the king of getting under people's skin and was kind enough to reveal some of his finest techniques.

Much thanks to Terry for joining me and you can hear him again on Dec. 21 and Dec. 23 calling the FSO games against Arkansas-Pine Bluff and Chicago State.

Here's the breakdown:

Minutes 1-4: Saying hello, setting the scene for those who have been asleep for the past 72 hours and bringing in Terry Nelson.

Mick Cronin talks about how the rivalry has deteriorated. Terry and I discuss toughness and how this rivalry has changed in the last 15-20 years.

12:30-21: Should the Shootout take a break? Would that help? And how will the certain arrival of hordes of national media for the event if it were continued play into the decision. Oh, and Terry already petitions to do that game with a Xavier play-by-play guy for the WorldWideLeader.

21-23: What are some ways to change the culture?

23-24:30: Yancy Gates and maturity

24:30-30: Terry Nelson: The agitator. Nelson describes how he frustrated players, got in their head and did extensive research on their personal lives.

30-34: What the Shootout being canceled or postponed would mean to somebody who is an alum.

34-36: Terry refuses to divulge to me the latest nickname he's planning for his broadcast despite my incessant prodding.

Again, huge thanks to Terry for joining me. And thanks to those of you that chose to listen. We'll talk to you next weeks.
