Coach Pat Monaghan shares his journey from growing up in Chicago to becoming a NCAA DI Assistant Coach. After high school he attended Harper and earned a 3rd Team NJCAA All American honor in 2004 before transferring to Lewis University (DII). When his playing days were over he became a Graduate Assistant at Wayne State College. He returned to his JUCO roots after finishing his GA program at Wayne State, he accepted an Assistant Coach position at Coffeyville CC from 2008 to 2010. Coffeyville won the Jayhawk East Conference Championship in 2009, and during his time there the team went 46-20. He had a homecoming of sorts when he was hired at Loyola Chicago. Coach Monaghan shares his memories of Sister Jean. After being let go at Loyola Chicago he landed at Minnesota State (NCAA DII) - where the team advanced to four NCAA Tournaments and won a paid of Conference titles. UW Milwaukee hired him and he spent two years at the Horizon League program. During his two years there they were one of the few teams who beat nationally ranked Loyola Chicago in 2017-18 prior to their "Cinderella" run in the NCAA Tournament. In 2019 Southern Illinois hired him and he's remained on Coach Bryan Mullins' coaching staff ever since. In addition to coaching at Southern Illinois he is also active in "Rising Coaches".
My guest on this episode of Nobody’s Safe w/Brady Laber is Byron Larkin who is all-time leading scorer at Xavier University and since 1998 has been the radio analyst for the Musketeers. Byron is part of a famous family from Cincinnati, Ohio that includes four boys that all achieved athletic success. We first talk about Mr. and Mrs. Larkin (Robert and Shirley) and how they had just three rules for their sons when it came to playing sports. We talk about each one of his siblings including the eldest of the five Larkin children and the only girl who’s name is Robin. She didn’t play sports and was more into concentrating on her academics. Oldest brother Mike specialized in football and went to Notre Dame where he was a team captain as a linebacker under head coach Gerry Faust. Next in line was Barry who was a Hall of Fame shortstop for the Cincinnati Reds. Byron was next oldest and Stephen is the youngest of the group and he was mostly a career minor league baseball player who did play one game with the Cincinnati Reds. We get into Byron’s career starting with his time in high school at Archbishop Moeller High School. He was a Parade All-American football player. The 1986 team he played on won a state championship and a mythical national championship. His basketball career was very successful at Moeller as well. He looks back on playing for head coach Danny Ragland who he credits as being the best coach he ever played for during his career. After a recruitment that includes offers for both football and basketball, Byron commits to Xavier University for basketball. He talks about some of the interesting recruiting visits from coaches during his recruitment including from head coaches Bob Staak (Xavier) and Rollie Massimino (Villanova). We talk about some of the great highlights of Byron’s playing career at Xavier starting with the second game of his freshman season against Pitt where he has a breakout performance. Another highlight is his 45 points performance in the 1986 Midwestern City Conference tournament game against Loyola-Chicago. Byron credits his greatest moment during his college career when he helped lead Xavier to its first ever NCAA tournament win in 1987 against Missouri. We also talk about how he passes Anthony Hicks as the program’s all-time leading scorer and finishes his career with 2,696 points. You can’t talk to a Xavier basketball player without bringing up Crosstown Shootout against the University of Cincinnati. Byron is proud to boast that he is 3-1 against the Bearcats. Byron’s post-Xavier highlights we cover include a tryout for the Cincinnati Bengals, his six-year professional career overseas, having his jersey number 23 retired and Hall of Fame induction at Xavier University. In closing we talk about Byron’s broadcasting career as the radio analyst for Xavier games with his longtime play-by-play partner and dear friend Joe Sunderman.

Our new coaches series continues with Oklahoma's Porter Moser! How's he settling into Norman after leaving Loyola-Chicago? Why change is always weird. What made Oklahoma the right fit for him?

The NCAA quietly announced late Tuesday night that president Mark Emmert had his contracted extended through 2025. It's baffling, and it's why we open this week's pod on the topic. Then Norlander and Parrish get to Loyola Chicago (22:00) hiring the youngest coach in D-I basketball -- while somehow keeping the roster almost entirely in tact. Pretty impressive. The pod closes with some thoughts on Texas (35:45) and then a Trivia Time! for you, the listener! Here is the Trivia Time! Name the 17 coaches in the past 25 seasons to get their first head-coaching job while simultaneously inheriting a program that made at least the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament the season prior.

On today's episode of Barstool Bench Mob, the guys recap an action-packed Sweet 16 that featured some blowouts, three 1-seeds advancing, and one stunning upset. In the West Region (03:13), we had two blowouts with Gonzaga and USC set to meet in the Elite Eight. Can anybody stop the Bulldogs and if so, is it Evan Mobley and the Trojans? Is this the toughest matchup the Zags will have faced all season? Marty and Rico both believe in the Trojans chances for an upset. In the East Region (11:48) we saw the major upset of the weekend with UCLA outlasting Alabama in overtime. The Crimson Tide's struggles at the foul line probably cost them the game and the Bench Mob some money. Mick Cronin's squad is heading to the Elite Eight in a matchup against 1-seed Michigan. The Wolverines smoked Florida State and are poised for another trip to the Final Four. Is Michigan the most underrated team left in the field? In the Midwest Region (33:33), the Beavers continue their Cinderella run after beating Loyola-Chicago in an absolute rock fight. Oregon State's defense has helped propel them to an unlikely Elite Eight matchup against Houston on Monday. The Cougars were able to figure out the Syracuse zone and get past the Orange. Do Marty and Jake finally believe in Houston despite only beating double-digit seeds so far? Over to the South Region (46:38) where the 1-seed Baylor Bears and 3-seed Arkansas Razorbacks will meet in an electric Elite Eight game Monday night. Arkansas barely survived after Max Abmas' last-second shot just missed. Jared Butler struggled against Villanova but the Bears overcame a 7-point halftime deficit to advance. Do the Razorbacks have the firepower to stay with Baylor? And we also have an Elite Eight set in the Women's Tournament (01:01:41) with three 1-seeds headlining the field including Paige Bueckers and UConn. And we wrap things up discussing Indiana's hiring of Mike Woodson (01:05:26). Don't forget to subscribe, rate, and review to Barstool Bench Mob and follow us on Twitter and Instagram @stoolbenchmob

Later, ShotQuality founder Simon Herszberg swings by to explain how he was able to develop a system to help NBA and college basketball teams quantify the quality of shots, how his system can help optimize decision-making for coaches and wagering for recreational bettors during the NCAA Tournament, why USC's blowout victory over Kansas last weekend had a lot to do with luck - same with Syracuse over San Diego State, why it's time to stop talking about Loyola Chicago as a nice Cinderella team and start talking about them as a legitimate college basketball power, why it's going to take an extremely hot shooting night for Creighton to have any chance of upsetting Gonzaga in the Sweet 16, and much more!

On today's episode of Barstool Bench Mob, Rico, Marty, and Jake recap a wild first round of the NCAA Tournament. We start in the West Region where Virginia officially ended it's courtship with Rico losing to 13-seed Ohio. Creighton barely escaped an upset bid from UCSB. How far can the Blue Jays go? And unfortunately we have our first COVID-related no-contest allowing Oregon to move on after VCU was forced to bow out. (02:31) Onto the South Region where Ohio State was stunned by Oral Roberts and North Texas topped Purdue further confirming Marty's Big Ten take. Plus - the bet has been set. A second round matchup between Arkansas and Texas Tech will determine whether Marty will take a difficult math test or Rico will be read the Berenstain Bears 47 times. (10:50) Moving to the Midwest Region - three double digit seeds advance to the round of 32. 12 seed Oregon State beat down Tennessee to continue their late-season run. But are they really a threat to Cade Cunningham and Oklahoma State? And we have an intra-state matchup between 1-seed Illinois and 8-seed Loyola-Chicago.
