The fellas are back for some offseason content. Ben and Pat are joined by the lead political writer for Esquire and former columnist for Grantland (RIP) and The Boston Herald, Charles Pierce.

A graduate of the Marquette Class of 1975, he has a breadth of knowledge about the deep history of the Marquette basketball program. He talks about the impact of Jim Chones, the legacy of Al McGuire, the deep tournament runs of the 1970s, hatred of Notre Dame, sending Christmas cards to legendary North Carolina head coach Dean Smith, and more.
