Podcast 115: 08.23.17 / Tom Schad interview (Memphis football)

Wednesday’s episode welcomes in Tom Schad (@tom_schad), the Memphis Tiger football reporter for the Commerical Appeal, and the host of the Tiger Football Podcast.

We hit on these topics:

(1:11) Where Tom was before he came to Memphis, and how he got started in sports writing.

(2:26) Was he surprised that Memphis didn’t get a single AP Poll vote?

(3:19) This season’s success hinges on the offense clicking early. Are there any chinks in the armor that he’s seen so far?

(5:55) How is Jackson Dillon progressing after last season’s injury, and how much can the defense improve over last year?

(9:40) With there being talk about Mike Norvell’s next job, even before we start his 2nd season, what is the university’s contingency plan for the football program if they keep losing great young coaches?

(12:54) Paxton Lynch lost the starting job with the Broncos again. Should Memphis fans be worried that their former star QB could be a bust?

Gary Segars

Gary began his first website in 1998 as a sophomore in high school, writing reviews of cds and live shows in the Memphis area. He became editor of his college newspaper, then moved towards a career in music.He started the infamous MemphisTider.com blog during the 2006 football season, and was lucky enough to get into blogging just before the coaching search that landed Nick Saban at Alabama. The month and a half long coaching search netted his site, which was known for tracking airplanes, over 1 million hits in less than 90 days. The website introduced Gary to tons of new friends, including Nico and Todd, who had just started the site RollBamaRoll.com.After diving into more than just Alabama news, Gary started up his first installment of WinningCuresEverything.com in 2012. After keeping the site quiet for a while, it was started back up in April 2016. Gary then joined forces with high school friend Chris Giannini and began a podcast during the 2016 football season that runs at least 2 times a week, focusing on college football, NFL football, and sports wagering, and diving into other sports and pop-culture topics.E-mail: gary@winningcureseverything.com Twitter: @GaryWCE
