Brian and Har-Bo fly solo today and re-cap the bowl season. Pat Fitzgerald and Mark Stoops pulled a Dumb & Dumber impersonation with their coaching mistakes at crunch time of the Music City Bowl. Brian lets both coaches have it for those knucklehead mistakes. He also lets himself have it for a horrible bowl season, but at least he's on fire in college hoops right now. Lots of college hoops talk is on the agenda as well, in addition to UGA-Alabama and much more.
Brian touches on a slew of topics in the introductory segment ranging from college football, the NFL, college hoops, the NBA and UFC 218. Next, Trey Wallace of the Read-Optional.com joins Games Galore 27 from Nashville. Trey fills us in on a number of things from the coaching searches at Florida and Tennessee, in addition to the lack of interest in Louisville's Bobby Petrino. After Brian laments on several Bad Beats in basketball this week, we welcome Russell Smith to the show from Knoxville. Smith, who is the host of The Drive on 101.5 FM Fox Sports Knoxville from 3:00-6:00 p.m. Eastern Monday-Friday, recaps the madness of the last two weeks for Tennessee fans. In the end, Smith endorses the hire of Pruitt (as did Wallace), especially considering how it could've been Greg Schiano or Dave Doeren. Smith also hits on the Vols' men's hoops team, which cracked the national rankings this week and has a sold-out home game against North Carolina on Dec. 17.
The Silly Season is ongoing and it's an unmitigated disaster in Knoxville. Brian gives his opinions on UF landing Dan Mullen and the latest from Rocky Top. Jason Floyd of The MMA Report and RadioInfluence.com is our first guest. The timing of Jason's appearance is perfect because he works for the Buccaneers, lives in Tampa and is an FSU fan. Therefore, he has information on Greg Schiano and Willie Taggart, who appears to be FSU's choice if Jimbo Fisher bolts for College Station. Floyd, along with Gamb Lou, are our go-to guys on the UFC as well, so we discuss plenty of Saturday's UFC 218 card. Finally, Jay Greeson of The Chattanooga Times Free Press joins the fun. Jay is an Auburn grad, so he has opinions on the SEC Championship Game, in addition to the futures of Gus Malzahn and Bruce Pearl. He also has plenty to say about UT's coaching search that couldn't possibly have been scripted any worse. Hope you enjoy Games Galore 26!
Brian delves into the wild season we have had, and looks to what the week ahead holds. Kelly Stewart stops in to give her take on this holiday's games and much more.
With Florida and Tennessee looking for new coaches, Brian calls in our UT guru Tony Basilio to discuss everything going on with the Volunteers. Also, SECCountry.com's Christopher Smith makes his fourth career GG appearances, and he's poised to deal out winners yet again. The Silly Season is here and many SEC jobs are in play. We discuss it all, in addition to many bets and ballgames. Kick back, pop a Budweiser and get your Games Galore program on!
