With the football being over, we’ve got an exciting basketball focused podcast coming your way from the Nati Boys. We talk UC, Xavier and OSU all being in the top 10 in the AP polls, LeBron’s trades in the NBA, and Lavar Ball is still running his mouth. We have a slightly different fantasy draft tonight where we all select our starting five of non-NBA players. Enjoy the show!
The Nati Boys discuss Alabama’s thrilling come-from-behind-victory to become co-National Champions, thanks in large part to a QB change at halftime. We discuss the aftermath of #BillsMafia and the wake of destruction they left in tailgating lots all around Jacksonville, plus we recap the games from wildcard weekend. We also look forward to the divisional match ups and give you our picks against the spread, which are almost guaranteed to be wrong. Our good friend Lavar Ball has been fighting a two-front war as he battles the Better Business Bureau’s F rating while maintaining his ongoing criticism for Lakers’ coach Luke Walton. Finally, in honor of Alabama’s comeback in the National Championship game, we wrap up the show with a fantasy draft of our all time favorite comebacks.
On today’s episode of the Nati Boys podcast, we talk about Marvin Lewis’ wavering interest in coaching the team next year, and some other NFL topics including Aaron Rodgers going back on the IR, the Pittsburgh catch that wasn’t a catch and the possible return of the XFL. We also talk some NBA with Kobe’s numbers being retired, and Lavar Balls new junior basketball league. We wrap the show by getting into the holiday spirit and giving out some gifts in our fantasy draft. Enjoy the show!
Good morningGood evening Hello and welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. We’re midway through December and the unthinkable has happened. The Bengals have been officially eliminated from playoff contention. I know, I’m as shocked as you are. I could’ve sworn they’d clinched a playoff spot like three weeks ago since they’ve played so well this year. The good news is that Bengals fans can watch the last two weeks of the season without worrying about the games’ outcomes. At this point the best case for the Bengals would be to lose out in order to get the best possible draft pick, but I just can’t get on #TeamTank. It feels wrong. So I’ll continue to pull for the Bengals to win, knowing that if they don’t then they’re still going to better their draft position. It’s win-win. Or lose-lose, I’m not quite sure. Anyways, here’s Wake Up With Whitty.
The Nati Boys aren’t 100% sure that Antonio Brown knows how karma works. The Bengals/Steelers game got ugly, and we’re not on board with that kinda bullshit. Is Marvin gone after this season is over? It sure feels like it. There were some suspensions in the Bengals game, and Gronk ended up getting suspended too. Eli is once again named starter of the Giants, and we give you our NFL picks for the upcoming games this weekend. Also, we can’t stop talking about Lavar Ball as he pulls his son out of college at UCLA. We also talk about the Crosstown Shootout, and the fallout from the Cronin/Macura dust-up. Our fantasy draft this week is of Bowl Games we wish existed, and we end the show with what we’re looking forward to this weekend. Enjoy the show!
The Nati Boys begin the show by talking about the exciting additions that Milliron Sports has made this week. Our NFL topics include a poor first performance by Nathan Peterman, Elway having some issues in Denver, our NFL picks for the weekend, and how all 32 teams are still mathematically alive in the playoff race. We also get into the Georgia Dome demolition, and the Braves MLB sanctions. Trump and Lavar Ball are still making headlines, and our fantasy draft this week is of things we’d camp out for on Black Friday. Enjoy the show!
It’s everyone’s favorite time of year! We’ve hit the quarter-season mark in the NFL, which means it’s time for the Nati Boys to present their quarter-season NFL awards. The guys also discuss Lavar Ball’s decision to pull his youngest son out of high school in order to home school him, and we reflect on the NBA’s changes to the All Star format. We preview UC’s and OSU’s upcoming matchups, and we pick on the Browns a little bit for not being very good at football. We give our upcoming NFL picks as Whitty tries to climb out of the cellar and gain some ground on the other guys. Finally, in honor of OJ’s recent release, we wrap the show up with a fantasy draft of the first things we would do upon being released from prison.
