It cannot always be sunshine and rainbows, right? Sometimes, games won’t be as easy to stomach as we wish they were. Sometimes, we don’t get Greg and Dan and Richard guffawing their way through a 30-point thumping of BYU, or a nigh-50-point humiliation of Randy Bennett and his scowl.

Sometimes, we have to listen to Bill Walton.

But don’t worry, dear FIBbers, Free Ira Brown is here to help you through these dark times.

In our latest episode, our heroes take a look at the good (Dickau on national TV! Double-digit wins conference road wins!), the bad (Boxing out against Loyola Marymount! Three-point shooting against San Diego! Walton!) and the ugly (Let’s all agree to ignore both first halves, OK? Oh yeah, WALTON!) in the less-than-ideal-but-not-as-bad-as-some-people-think wins over LMU and USD.

Those stories, plus BYU keeps ruining things for the Gonzaga women, we finally found an award which bothered to remember Brandon Clarke exists, we look ahead to a return of our old friend Romar, BYU is in town for Senior Night again (ugh), Marty gets a movie wrong (we couldn’t believe it either) and Adam tells the story of the time he got accused of plagiarizing his thesis (it’s not true, but trust us: it’s a story you’ll want to hear, if only to hear how he left his parents twisting in the wind).

And finally, in honor of Marty’s annual trip to Maui, we finish with a truly vacation-worthy Top 3 sure to get your bags packed.

All this and more on the latest episode of Free Ira Brown, THE Gonzaga Hoops Podcast. Do come be a light in the aural darkness with us, won’t you?
