Episode 2 is a live broadcast which we explain in greater detail deeper into the pod. This week we naturally explore Oregon State’s monster win over Arizona and – perhaps unnaturally – ignore the college football championship for our Duck faithful. #BackThePac. Also, how ’bout that new header, eh?
WANE (or on SoundCloud):
1:08- Barely over a minute in a Spencer proves to be an non-expert
1:25- PacHoops Power Rankings: #12 Arizona State
2:05- Runner-up for team of the week: UCLA
4:00- Context: we have referred to the parity group in the Pac-12 this year (teams behind Utah and Arizona) as a “stale bread amoeba”.
6:30- Correction, UCLA could be #3. Top two spots at this point are spoken for.
8:10- Stanford Hot Water Burn Baby of the Pac-12? Adam avoids the question.
10:00 – (Bread) crumby middle-amoeba
10:35 – Bigger Pac-12 dumpster fire: Washington or Cal? Adam says Washington.
11:50 – Is Washington the 11-0 team or the 0-4 team. Spencer says the 11-4 team.
12:25 – iPhone messages now are sent to my computer, and that “binnnng” means someone was texting Spencer. Apologies.
14:15 – On to our next dumpster fire: Cal
15:00 – Ok, another text message. The content’s of which was a friend of Spencer’s suggesting Ezekiel Elliot is his doppelganger. Adam agrees.
18:45 – UConn coming to Palo Alto has us looking back at the best Pac-12 non-conference wins of the season.
20:10 – Spencer is officially a Reddit Top 25 voter! Ballot here.
21:10 – Texas is a hot mess.
@rumblinbuffalo They are the hot mess of NCAA Basketball this year. So sexy, sooooooo clearly avoidable. Disclaimer: I love hot messes

22:05 – Here’s a formal reminder that Kansas has lost its two games by a combined 57 points. Everybody got time for that
22:45 – Basketball is not played on a field…….
24:25 – Is there a better three headed monster than Stanford’s Randle-Brown- (Nastic/Allen)?
25:40 – In case you missed sit, Stanford has a HUGE four game stretch coming up (@Cal, UConn, Arizona, ASU)
27:35 – Spencer is not a state nickname expert. #WANE
28:10 – Tinkle Time! No avoiding the a: name power and b: coaching prowess of Wayne Tinkle.
28:45 – Oregon State Athletic Department on solid foundation right now
29:40 – Make no mistake, Oregon State brought the D against Arizona.
31:10 – And the O – shooting a confirmed 65% (11 of 17) in the 2nd half. On top of 17 FT attempts. Yeeeouch!
32:20 – Make no mistake about it, with all the complaining we might do about Zues and Brandon Ashley this year, we know we’re spoiled.
33:00 – Rundown of the final minute of Oregon St. and Arizona. Why this isn’t last year’s Arizona team.
35:30 – Homer Hat OFF! Arizona has some fundamental flaws.
35:45 – FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS: Being an Arizona fan when they are this good can be less fun than when Sean was building it up.
37:30 – Verdict: This Arizona team is not going to be better offensively than last years, unfortunately.
38:00 – Spencer has some nonsensical gears to grind about the urgency of Rondae’s offense.
40:15 – We don’t see any way Colorado sneaks out a road victory at McKale.
40:35 – Gotta be the biggest basketball game ever aired on Pac-12 Networks right? Over-under 22 DirecTV subscribers who cancel this week because of the game? Adam takes the over.
41:30 – What have you done for me Lately Utah? A lot.
42:20 – Let’s talk about the trap game that is Tempe, Arizona.
44:00 – A complete overview of the week ahead.
45:00 – We aren’t crazy interested in the Oregon/Washington schools this week (the heart of the Stale Bread Amoeba), but ll be anxious to see if Tinkle and the Beavs can correct their road woes.

Love the header! Is that Kystkowiak holding his own head in poster-board form?
Thanks, Nick! And yes, that most definitely is K holding K’s head. I forget exactly when that was but it was before a big home game in SLC.
