Welcome to the Minnesota Nice Pahdcast!

We’ve taken a break from the traditional written Q&A with fellow SBN blogs and transitioned to a Pahd version of the Q&A. Why? Well, a couple of reasons:

  • We’re officially addicted to podcasting here at The Daily Gopher. Sometimes it’s more fun to talk than write and we’ve decided to embrace that.
  • Woodchipper art needs to be used. When we were brainstorming names for the original Pahd, logos involving a woodchipper were mocked up but didn’t fit the SUP name quite right. So we decided to spin it off because the logo needed a chance to shine.
  • The Ski-U-Pahdcast is a big show as it is. We really prefer to keep SUP under 60 minutes and having a separate segment for Q&A lets us go more in depth with the folks we’re interviewing without turning SUP into a bloated mess.

Talking Purdue

Travis (BoilerTMill - @JustTMill) of Hammer & Rails was kind enough to join us for our first ever MNP. Here’s some of what you can expect from our first trip through the woodchipper:

  • Just how good is this Boilermakers team anyway?
  • What are the biggest reasons for Purdue’s early success?
  • Breaking down the big improvement in Purdue’s run defense
  • Do you like trick plays? Because Jeff Brohm likes trick plays
  • Travis’s gameplan for beating Minnesota
  • Realistic goals for Purdue under Brohm
  • Favorite memories of Joe Tiller
