What are the Big 12 Basketball Coaches Binge-Watching in Quarantine
We should be watching March Madness. Instead, we are all binge-watching Tiger King, Love is Blind and Outbreak. It's a very poor substitute. As good as the Joe Exotic story is, a Jahmi'us Ramsey step-back or a Davide Moretti free throw to clinch a win in the Round of 32 would be so much better.
Hell, a blowout between Florida and Richmond would be good at this point.
Now, the common man is generally bingeing Hulu and Netflix on a weekly basis, but what are these college coaches doing with their newfound time? They can't go out and recruit. They can't coach games. They are now just like us. They are taking in loads of TV and probably tweeting too much.
Jeff Goodman from Stadium wasn't satisfied with guessing what these guys were up to, he polled all 300 plus college basketball coaches to ask them what's on their television.
Here's what the Big 12 coaches said:
Scott Drew, Baylor
TV Show: SportsCenter
Scott. There's nothing on SportsCenter. If you need recommendations hit me up on twitter.
Steve Prohm, Iowa State
TV Show: Ozarks
Movie: The Shawshank Redemption
Ozarks Season three is about to drop. Prohm knows what's up.
Bill Self, Kansas
TV Show: Chicago P.D.
I'm surprised he's not watching FBI or Blue Chips.
Bruce Weber, Kansas State
TV Show: Modern Family
Movie: Green Book
Bruce loves Sophia. Who doesn't?
Lon Kruger, Oklahoma
TV Show: NCIS
Movie: The Sound of Music
NCIS is exactly the kind of mindless TV that fills a quarantine. Law and Order. CSI. Bones. Criminal Minds. You can zone out and six episodes later the same thing is happening and spoiler alert they'll solve it.
Mike Boynton, Oklahoma State
TV Show: Martin
You gonna eat that cornbread?
Jamie Dixon, TCU
TV Show: The White Shadow
Movie: One on One
Hey Jamie, check out Dracula on Netflix. I think he's your cousin.
Shaka Smart, Texas
TV Show: Who Killed Malcolm X?
Shaka didn't get fired?
Chris Beard, Texas Tech
TV Show: Breaking Bad
Movie: Miracle on Ice
Breaking Bad is one of the greatest television shows of all-time. Chris Beard is one of the greatest coaches. I wouldn't doubt that Beard has pulled a few motivational quotes from Herb either.
Bob Huggins, West Virginia
TV Show: Mobsters
Movie: The Godfather
This is so perfect it hurts, except instead of tracksuits it's short sleeve quarter zips and slacks.
