Preferred Walk-Ons Podcast: Life On The Bubble

After several anemic offensive performances, Virginia basketball finds itself in unfamiliar territory: squarely on the NCAA Tournament bubble.

In this episode, the Preferred Walk-Ons Podcast talks about fan anxiety and addresses criticisms for the Cavaliers’ recent play. Topics for discussion include:

  • Our upcoming watch party for the UVA-Duke game (0:00-4:04)
  • Court storming experiences and alternatives (4:04-14:40)
  • Mississippi Valley State completing the D1 “circle of parity” (14:40-18:47)
  • How Virginia fans should navigate the unfamiliar territory of “the bubble” (18:47-25:12)
  • Fan reactions to Virginia’s recent struggles on offense (25:12-36:23)
  • NC State’s outlook for making the 12-team College Football Playoff and initial betting lines (36:23-45:41)
  • Excitement about the return of college sports to video games (45:41-54:01) presents The Preferred Walk-Ons Podcast, a college sports podcast through the lens of the ACC. Michael McGraw, a University of Virginia graduate and fan, and Michael Shutt, a life-long NC State fan, both grew up watching the ACC and have insights on the history and present of the conference … plus plenty of healthy ABC – (Anybody But Carolina) bias.
