  • Mid-Major Podcast: The Neubauer Hour

    Mid-Major Podcast: The Neubauer Hour

    27/01/2021 Duration: 51min

    Fordham fired Jeff Neubauer on Tuesday, meaning we got a chance to engage in our favorite activity: baseless speculation about college basketball coaching hires. We also discussed Terry Taylor, Richmond, and conference tournaments before jumping back to coach talk because we just can't help ourselves. Learn more about your ad choices.

  • Mid-Major Madness Podcast: A salute to the unbeatens

    Mid-Major Madness Podcast: A salute to the unbeatens

    13/01/2021 Duration: 46min

    With reduced schedules, constant pauses, and more, teams have not played as many games as they normally would have by mid-January. This has left us with a handful of undefeated teams, and some of them with a real chance of finishing the season unblemished. We take a look at each one of them (minus Alabama State, sorry) and talk about their chances moving forward. Then, we move on to Dayton before having some fun at Hannah's expense.

  • Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Northern Iowa and San Diego State head in opposite directions

    Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Northern Iowa and San Diego State head in opposite directions

    16/12/2020 Duration: 47min

    This week, Northern Iowa announced that it would forgo the remainder of its non-conference schedule to try and get healthy. The Panthers are 1-4 and have now lost star AJ Green for the season, so the balance of power has shifted significantly in the Valley. We break that down, then look at the San Diego State Aztecs who are somehow even better than expected. The gang also touches on Grand Canyon, Rhode Island, Western Kentucky, and Marshall in a rapid-fire look around college basketball. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

  • Mid-Major Madness Podcast: A Mercer Bears and Ohio Bobcats appreciation podcast

    Mid-Major Madness Podcast: A Mercer Bears and Ohio Bobcats appreciation podcast

    08/12/2020 Duration: 49min

    It's been, well, a week in college basketball. The most anticipated game of the weekend (Gonzaga vs. Baylor) was called off and the Bulldogs are now paused due to positive COVID-19 case(s) within the program. So instead of breaking that game down, we discussed the Mercer Bears and why they are Sam's mid-major crush of the week. Then, Russ challenged Sam and Lance to a game about Ohio's 40-0 run before we started speculating about the WAC and conference realignment. Learn more about your ad choices.

  • Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Over-reacting to Northern Iowa, Western Kentucky, and Richmond

    Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Over-reacting to Northern Iowa, Western Kentucky, and Richmond

    30/11/2020 Duration: 51min

    There’s no better time to make reckless claims about the quality of college basketball teams than after precisely five (5) days. It’s science. Western Kentucky and Richmond are awesome. Northern Iowa stinks. Gonzaga is basically the ‘96 Bulls. Most importantly: Grant Golden remains our son. Sam and Russ were on again this week, while Hannah Butler made her podcast debut to help break it all down and more. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    Well folks, the 2020-21 college basketball season is here. Mid-Major Madness has staffed up in recent weeks and we are thrilled to welcome Lance Hartzler and Sam Newberry (among others) to the team. Lance and Sam jump on the pod to talk about their mid-major backgrounds, what they're looking forward to this year, and to help Russ figure out how the hell this season is going to work.

    Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Examining how COVID-19 will dictate college sports in 2020-21

    09/07/2020 Duration: 54min

    It takes a lot to bring us out of our offseason bunkers, but a global pandemic sure did the job (after like 4 months). We've hit the point in the summer where it's time to start seriously looking at what sports will look like in the fall and winter. The Ivy League has announced it will not play until January at the earliest and Stanford has cut a bunch of athletic programs. It's not looking good! Russ and Cam talk about what needs to happen and what might happen going forward. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    01/04/2020 Duration: 42min

    By now, you’re probably tired of “simulated bracket” posts, but hopefully we have something that’ll pique your interest at Mid-Major Madness. We have officially created an NCAA Tournament bracket with mid-major teams only, and are proud to release it to you. Sit back and enjoy our selection show. Learn more about your ad choices.

  • Mid-Major Madness CamTehrion Collection: The candles pod

    Mid-Major Madness CamTehrion Collection: The candles pod

    19/03/2020 Duration: 01h08min

    There are no sports. At all. It sucks. Today was supposed to be the first full day of the NCAA Tournament and instead you're scrolling through your podcast feed and reading a description about an hour-long candles discussion. I'm so, so sorry. But Cam and Tehr make it all worth it, I promise. Introducing The CamTehrion Collection. Our own Cam Newton and Tehr Umar chat for an hour or so about whatever they want. No script. No outline (probably). Just whatever pops into their head. Today, the discussion is candles. Enjoy. Or don't, whatever. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

  • Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Conference USA commissioner Judy MacLeod talks bonus play and the CUSA Tournament

    Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Conference USA commissioner Judy MacLeod talks bonus play and the CUSA Tournament

    27/02/2020 Duration: 27min

    February and March are the two best months of the college basketball calendar, but Conference USA takes it to a different level. First, it brings us bonus play, where the top teams in the conference all face each other in hopes of improving seeding or postseason bid opportunities. Then, it's their one-of-a-kind conference tournament, where the men's and women's teams play in the same stadium on two courts that sit atop a football field. League commissioner Judy McLeod joined the pod to talk about what makes CUSA so unique and why she feels it puts her teams and fans in the best possible position. Learn more about your ad choices.

  • Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Were driving the 2-bid SoCon bus

    Mid-Major Madness Podcast: We're driving the 2-bid SoCon bus

    19/02/2020 Duration: 55min

    Remember last year how the hope for a 2-bid SoCon was all the rage? Well, this year the conference isn't quite as good, but that might actually be possible. East Tennessee State has built a great resume and, if it falters in the SoCon tournament, will get serious consideration. We also dive into Gonzaga, which still has the dumb narrative of not being able to win in the tournament despite, uh, always winning in the tournament. Then we discuss some of the top mid-major teams and whether you should pick them to go far in March or to flame out early. *One note: We had some audio issues and there is an echo at some points. Please try to ignore it and we'll try to fix it in the future. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

  • Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Takeaways from Daytons weekend and the ASUN is weird as hell

    Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Takeaways from Dayton's weekend and the ASUN is weird as hell

    29/01/2020 Duration: 57min

    We're back! Russ had the flu and of course couldn't trust anyone else to record, so the pod had a brief hiatus. In the meantime, Cam went and saw Obi Toppin in person, the ASUN decided it wants to expand to 20 members, the SoCon got fun again, and CUSA crept closer to flex play.

    Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Baseless NCAA Tournament speculation

    09/01/2020 Duration: 43min

    The gang is back, and with conference play heating up, we already know what's on your mind: "Can my favorite team get an at-large bid?" No. But there are interesting tournament-related threads to follow throughout the next couple months. The 1 seed in the West is going to come down to Gonzaga and San Diego State — and we even make the argument for giving them both 1s. Then there's the West Coast Conference as a whole and how many bids it can pull off. Same for the A-10. Most importantly, IS THIS THE YEAR WILLIAM & MARY DANCES??? Learn more about your ad choices.

    Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Observations from Delaware, assessing Liberty's undefeated start, and the State of the Valley

    17/12/2019 Duration: 50min

    In a throwback to the Mid-Major Madness podcasts of yore (like 3 years ago), Russ and Greg take on the mid-major world solo. It starts with Delaware, which fell to Villanova this weekend in a close one. Are the Blue Hens for real, and what has been the key to their success? Discussion then turns to Liberty, which has remained undefeated and has played nobody of note. How will that affect the rest of their season? Learn more about your ad choices.

    Mid-Major Madness Coaches' Show: Chris Mooney on how Richmond has evolved over the past decade and what's in store for the A-10

    10/12/2019 Duration: 16min

    I'm lazy, so Jared Kotler is taking over the Coaches' Show for a bit. He starts with a discussion with Richmond head coach Chris Mooney. Mooney has the Spiders off to a strong start with three wins over Power 5 teams and a top-30 offense in all of college basketball. He talks through how his program has developed over the years and the strength of the Atlantic 10 in 2019-20. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Who should be No. 1?

    05/12/2019 Duration: 40min

    Our voters had a tough time deciding who should be No. 1 this week. Ultimately, San Diego State edged out Gonzaga and Dayton, but all three have a good case. We dissect the end of Feast Week and everything that came out of it, talk a little Vermont and whether we should be worried, and address the trolls on Twitter who got mad at us not ranking Stephen F. Austin. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Making sense of Feast Week

    02/12/2019 Duration: 45min

    After a technical difficulty-riddled hiatus, we are back, and it's just in time to make sense of Feast Week. Since we last spoke, Dayton went out to Maui and decided to look like a Final Four team for a bit, Gonzaga beat a really good Oregon team then got smoked by Michigan, and Penn looks like the best 5-3 team in the land. We talk about all that and more this week. And with Kyle on, do we get a solid Pepperdine 2 Minutes? Yes, of course we do. s/o Elijah Campbell for editing Learn more about your ad choices.

    Mid-Major Madness Podcast: Who impressed us from week 1 of the college basketball season

    12/11/2019 Duration: 42min

    The season is barely a week old and the east coast already has us questioning our own sanity. Northeastern, led by Jordan Roland, appears better than we thought, and Delaware is already 4-0. On the other end of it, we debate what to do with Harvard. The Crimson are short-handed, but that's been the case for a year now. Elsewhere, UTSA has let us down again and THE WAC MINUTE RETURNS!

    New Orleans beat Spring Hill 114-58 on Tuesday, but the biggest day of UNO's season so far was on Wednesday when head coach Mark Slessinger joined the Mid-Major Madness podcast. We talked the Privateers' season-opening win, their rough road slate coming up, that state of the Southland, Slessinger's A+ dance moves, and more. Learn more about your ad choices.
