Brian flies solo on Games Galore 61 due to some technical issues with Harbo outta town. Thanks to Dave Cokin and Christopher Smith for being ready as guests, but it didn't work out. Nevertheless, Brian covered plenty of ground in college hoops and the NBA. He's on a nice run with college hoops and provides his plays for tonight. He also hits on the Super Bowl, KIV's unbelievable Bad Beat on her Hottie Threesome that didn't have a happy ending, LSU's potential for a deep March run, FSU's (lack of a) QB situation, Kareem Hunt and the UFC on ESPN 1 card set for Sunday. Pull up a chair, Games Galore 61 is here to get you filled in on what's up.
Games Galore 60 has a pair of featured guests in KellyinVegas and GambLou, two of our favorite friends' of the show.

G-Lou joins the program to help us break down all the latest UFC news, this Saturday's UFC on ESPN+ 1 card and he also has 3 positions he's recommending for Sunday's NFL action. In the intro and closing segment, Harbo & B.E. do a little math to figure out if Wilt 'The Stilt' Chamberlain was full of shit or not. Brian also talks about UF's disappointing basketball season to date, but offers some optimistic thoughts and advises Gator Nation to get off Mike White's ass. Plus, look-ahead lines for the potential Super Bowl matchups and much more. G-Galore 60! Pull up a chair and enjoy...
Returning from a holiday hiatus, Games Galore 59 is back with plenty to cover and a trio of outstanding guests. After an intro segment, we bring on an old-school 1620 The Zone alum (Omaha!) in ESPN's Matt Schick, who provides college football takes on Alabama-Clemson, the future of Nebraska football under Scott Frost, potential destinations for Jalen Hurts and much more. Next, we go to Knoxville to bring on Tony Basilio, the sports radio titan of East Tennessee (via Philly!) for multiple decades. We re-visit last winter's debacle of a UT coaching search, his thoughts on Jeremy Pruitt, the legit-as-hell Final Four contender the Vols have in this year's basketball team and how his Eagles will fare Sunday in The Big East. Last but not least in the Guest Department, Jay Greeson of The Chattanooga Times Free Press (and co-host of Press Row on ESPN Chattanooga from 3-6 Eastern Monday-Friday). As always, Greeson brings it with lots of opinions on Auburn, the future of Gus Malzahn, Oscar Liar, the worst night of Nick Saban's career and MUCH, MUCH, MUCH more. Buckle up, folks, I'm guaranteeing this is one of the best 2-3 shows in Games Galore history. Plenty of picks, laughs, facts, opinions and Oscar Liar nonsense!
Games Galore 58 is here and we get started in Segment 1 with Brian breaking down this week's NFL action. In Segment 2, MyBookie.ag's Christopher Smith (Twitter handle: @cfblocksmith) joins the show to give out his two favorite picks of the bowl season. C-Smith is extremely bullish on Vandy and Missouri, and he explains why. Also, he has several selections for Saturday's bowl card that has five games. We had hoped to get with our guy Jay Greeson to get his take on Oscar Liar, in addition to the dysfunction going down at his alma mater (Auburn!). However, technical difficulties prevented us from making this happen We'll get with Jay next week. In the final segment, B.E. hits on a little UFC, the 2019 Heisman Trophy odds posted at MyBookie.ag and more. We hope you enjoyed GG 58!
Brian welcomes featured guest GambLou (of GambLou.com and twitter handle: @GambLou) in Segment 1 and they break down Saturday's stacked UFC 231 card. B.E. comes out strong in Segment 2, laying waste to Kirby Smart's unfathomably disastrous decision to fake a punt at midfield on 4th and 11 in a tie game with three minutes left. Next, you know who's next! OSCAR! Who knew this was going to happen? Oh, that's right, we did as we've discussed it on basically every GG pod all fall about how I slapped 'The GUARANTEE' on him quitting on the F-eyes. We also hit on a few bowl games, some college basketball futures, as B.E. likes The 'Cuse at 50/1 odds. This and much more in Games Galore 57. We hope you enjoy!
After a holiday hiatus, The Games Galore podcast is back with GG 56. Matt Zemek and Christopher Smith are our guests as we dive into Friday and Saturday's conference championship games. Jason Floyd of The MMA Report and RadioInfluence.com is in for Harbo to produce and talk UFC (in the final segment). Brian shares a number of his picks for the weekend. We also hit on the Coaching Carousel, Rivalry Weekend and much more. Pull up a chair, pop a beverage and enjoy Games Galore 56!
No script, no guests, just non-stop talk about bets and ballgames. Holy Zion Williamson! My goodness, is that guy a monster or what? Brian hits on the pimpslap Duke handed out last night -- could the Blue Devils be as nasty in hoops as 'Bama is in football this year? Here come my Falcons! They've won three in a row, added Bruce Irvin to the roster and Deion Jones started practicing today. The Gators? Um, let's just say B.E. is ready for some Kyle Trask. Games Galore 55 has got you covered for picks, injuries and more in hoops, pigskin and a little UFC convo.
Although Kentucky is still in the mix in the SEC East, the winner of the Florida-Georgia showdown Saturday in Jacksonville seems most likely to represent the division in Atlanta during the first weekend of December. Brian and Jason Floyd discuss this game and many other in what is a stacked college football card in Week 9.
Games Galore 53 gets started with Jason Floyd and Brian hitting on 'overs' galore for the Falcons and Buccaneers, in addition to the Saints' brutal scheduled over the next few weeks that could tighten up the NFC South race. They also review what we saw in the UFC 229 headliner and ponder the future of both McGregor & Khabib.
Jay Greeson of Press Row and the Chattanooga Times-Free Press, hits on what he saw at this alma mater this past Saturday when Auburn took an unfathomable defeat as a double-digit home favorite to the Vols, who had lost 11 consecutive SEC games previously. Greeson and Brian hit on the college hoops corruption case and what they think of Holier-than-Thou Coach K and his weak-ass remarks this week that Yahoo's Dan Wetzel smashed in a recent column. Hell, even the Boston Globe's spectacular journalism in its new series of analysis of the Aaron Hernandez Saga came up. And yes, of course we got to football with Jay hitting on his new favorite team -- for our purposes, of course -- Utah St. Jay's also bullish on Harbo's squad that wears maize and blue at Sparty this weekend.
Not many in the industry are as sharp as Brad Powers, and he certainly delivered during his segment. Brad gave out lots of picks and opinions, talked about Ohio St.'s testy trip to West Lafayette and gave his thoughts on the Gators, Alabama and even some MACtion.
