Tom Izzo trolls Shawn, who gives ML and Marc the backstory, while Joe waits for coach to put him in!

THE STRAIGHT DOPE: Before the boys get to college basketball, they wax nostalgic for the hovels they inhabited in college. (Guess which one was the sullen housemate!)

Famously friendly Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo takes a shot at famously friendly Shawn Windsor during a post-game press conference. Shawn provides some context.

Marc questions the value of press conferences and locker room access, while Shawn and ML advocate for access to athletes.

Fans can get awfully nasty. The crew discusses when and whether it’s acceptable to boo — and Shawn serves notice to anyone who would mess with the person serving his Filet O Fish.
