Jimmy is out, so Bob (@BobMcDonald) has brought along Phil Daniels ( @Phil_2016) and Jon Durda (@pronkville08) on board. And they're talking about the down week the Horizon League experienced.

Bob (@BobMcDonald) and Jimmy (@PantherU) welcome Paul Oren (@NWIOren) from the Times of Northwest Indiana to the show. First, there's the discussion about the Horizon League's decision to cancel Media. Plus, Valpo is the favorite to win the conference, but how much pressure is on Alec Peters. Finally, with all the coaching changes, who will excel and who will struggle?

And, of course, there's the emergence of...Evil Gary Waters???

It's the final episode of the season, and yet, there's still plenty to talk about. Bob (@BobMcDonald) and Jimmy (@PantherU) discuss Wright State's hiring of Scott Nagy and Milwaukee's choice of LaVall Jordan. And, of course, there's the departure of Bryce Drew at Valpo. And Bob and Jimmy can't leave without saying goodbye to the season.

13: The Mean Season

As the NCAA Tournament goes on, the Horizon League is having an eventful post-season of its own. And it goes beyond Valparaiso's NCAA snub and Green Bay's first-round exit. Wright State and Milwaukee have fired their coaches. This has left Bob (@BobMcDonald) and Jimmy (@PantherU)left to wonder what two 20-game winning coaches did to deserve that.


12: The Post-Season (Or Not) For Everybody Else

While Green Bay gets ready for the NCAA tournament, other Horizon League schools will be headed to other tournaments. Bob (@BobMcDonald) and Jimmy ( @PantherU) talk about Valparaiso, one of final cuts from the NCAAs, who have clinched a top seed in the NIT.
