The Loyal Sons | Ep. 30 – Backyard Brawl Recap, John Morgan III, & Rocky Top Preview w/ Wes Rucker



Welcome back to The Loyal Sons Show (@TheLoyalSons): a safe, sun-shiny place for your Pitt athletics fix. Brought to you by Pittsburgh Sports Now.

On today’s episode…

  • 0:00 – 41:43 – Backyard Brawl Recap. Ohhhhh boyyyy, where to begin? The tailgate. The atmosphere. The drama. The tension. The Tip. The Backyard Brawl was an exuberant celebration of all things College Football…unless of course left you sitting in traffic on I-79, sad and dressed like Davy Crockett.
  • 41:48 – 59:57 – Loyal Sons Stock Exchange. Whose stock is up or down after an Thursday’s big win?
  • 1:00:01 – 1:17:54 – John Morgan III. The Baron of the Brawl himself returns to the shot to talk about the game of his life, his surging draft profile, the story behind Kedon Slovis’ viral pep rally speech, and preparing for Tennessee.
  • 1:17:59 – 1:46:10 – Wes Rucker. Tennessee’s Senior Writer for 247 Sports joins the show to discuss the keys to the game between the Pittsburgh Panthers vs. the SEC Volunteers.
  • 1:46:15 – 2:12:17 – Loyal Sons Sportsbook. The Book is back open for Saturday’s massive ranked showdown on the North Shore. We ask the important questions: Which receiver will emerge as the #1 guy? How well can the line project Slovis? Will Pitt fans be outnumbered 3:1 again? All this, and more!
Hail, Loyal Sons of Pittsburgh.
