Episode 6: Inside the Bearcats Podcast

| No TrackBacks
The Inside the Bearcats Podcast is taking an experimental turn this week. This week we welcome in the guys from Ballin' is a Habit, Rob Dauster and Troy Machir. They are currently breezing through Cincinnati on a nationwide college basketball tour. Their site is one of the premier college basketball blogs in the country and created an incredible following, including from this reporter.

These guys know college basketball as well as anybody and they are in the middle of one of the most interesting journeys any blogger has ever done.

Rather than hold a stuffy conversation over the phone, it seemed like a fun concept to welcome them to the Queen City the right way and take them out for their introduction to Montgomery Inn Ribs.

So, today, we invite you to come to lunch with myself, Troy and Rob -- and our lovely wait staff. Disregard out chatting with our mouths full as we talk about BIAH, map out their long journey, discuss the importance of dental hygiene, handicap the Big East, Vince Gill, Georgetown-UC observations, nationwide cuisine and hear Rob and Troy's amazement at the moment they truly realize the genius that is Montgomery Inn.

Not exactly your ordinary, typical podcast, but an interesting look inside UC and the Big East basketball conversation in a relaxed, free-flowing, carnivorous atmosphere.

Minutes 0-11: Here we are at Montgomery Inn, who is Ballin is a Habit, how did they get started and what are they thinking packing into a Hyundai Santa Fe with 170k miles on it and covering the US?

11-18: Mapping out the trip, including an incredible run of six games in six days along with the importance of toothbrushes and wireless hot spots. 

19-24: Georgetown-UC reactions and handicapping the Big East race in a year where there is Syracuse and everybody else. Could UC be the make a push to be the second-best team in the conference?

24-30: National perception of UC and how the weak middle of the conference will effect tournament resumes. Will it hurt UC's chance with a lacking non-conference slate.

30-33: Who are these people contending for Big East player of the year?

33-36: Rob has seen Villanova and relays his thoughts as we contemplate the absurdity of UC's struggles playing before 2 p.m. against high-major foes.

36-40: Why the reformation of the Big East will push us all close to tears.

40-43: Rob tells a disturbing story that ends with his pants down. We all share our concerns.
