Episode 8: Inside the Bearcats Podcast

| No TrackBacks
After a few weeks off, the Inside the Bearcats Podcast makes a triumphant return with a special guest. All of you that read this blog regularly should be very familiar with him because he used to hold down this space himself.

Katz.JPGI caught up with my predecessor and current national NFL blogger for CBSSports.com, Josh Katzowitz. Josh wrote Bearcats Rising -- which is still in stores and available for purchase today. His second book is coming out this July. It is on innovator of the passing game and former UC football coach, Sid Gilman.

Josh catches up as we talk about Gilman, the direction of UC football, the changing landscape of the sport and why there's a reason we don't make as much money as college athletic directors.

Katz is never afraid to share his unique, truthful perspective and it was fantastic welcoming him back to GoBearcats.com, even if only for a half hour.

You can read his NFL blog here, follow him on Twitter here and purchase Bearcats Rising here -- seriously, buy it, it's a fantastic read and still extremely relevant. Plus, it will help Josh feed two beautiful twins. If you hate smiling children, then don't buy it.

Here's the rundown of the show and a quick apology on some of the audio issues -- which even caused me to go far out of character and jump on top of Josh's thoughts a few times.

I should warn you, this podcast involves about 10 minutes of me talking to myself about UC basketball. Spending 10 minutes inside of my brain is not advisable for small children, adults with a heart condition or anyone who cherishes their sanity.

Here's the rundown:

Minutes 1-9: Myself, talking about UC basketball and the path to the NCAA tournament. This is seriously me talking to myself. My feelings will not be hurt if you jump immediately ahead to Josh's arrival.

9-18: Exchanging pleasantries, compliments, catching up with Josh's whereabouts since leaving GoBearcats and discussing the slippery slope of modern male neckwear.

18-27: Sid Gilman, who is he and why write a book about him?

27-35: How has the path of UC football been surprising from the point his book leaves off until now. We discuss why there are still major questions surrounding the future of the program -- and others like it of this size.

35-40: Why the Big East needs to see about three or four more [Insert school here] Rising books to become the power it hopes to be.

Valentine's Day lovefest between two Bearcats bloggers as we bid a fond farewell.

Again, huge thanks to Josh for taking the time to join.
