Black Shoe Podcast - Episode 3.01 - Lasch Bash Recap and More

Welcome to the #NextLevel of the Black Shoe Podcast.

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

This week, we at Black Shoe Diaries entered into what promises to be a long and happy marriage with VSporto, our new podcast platform. After our years spent with BlogTalkRadio and its horrible theme music, we decided that the time has come to make a change. We're very grateful that the fine folks at VSporto reached out to us, and we're happy to be joining their wonderful Nittany Lion Sports Radio channel that also includes podcasts from our friends over at Onward State and Nittany Lions Den, as well as others.

To start off this new era of the Black Shoe Podcast, Bill (@bflip33), Nick (@TheRealNPolak) and Cari (@notcarlotta) got together to talk about the recent Lasch Bash recruiting weekend, as well as a mini-preview of the upcoming season in the form of five questions. Make sure you follow all of us in the twittersphere, as well as VSporto (@vsporto) and the Nittany Lion Radio channel (@BlueWhiteRadio), and keep a look out for the soon-to-be-released app that will allow you to have all of your Penn State podcasts in one, convenient location.

Some highlights to look forward to:

  • Nick breaks down the two commitments from the Lasch Bash weekend, and how their talents will add to the tradition of Linebacker U.
  • Bill and Cari blame Nick, Matt and Junny for their disappointment in only gaining two new commitments, after they all predicted at least three.
  • Everyone discusses their favorite commits in the 2016 class thus far, based on varying reasoning.
  • Bill asks Nick and Cari five burning questions for the 2015 season, including the big one- what is Christian Hackenberg going to look like this season?
  • Bill, Nick and Cari reveal which game scares them most for the upcoming season (outside of Michigan State and Ohio State).
We hope you enjoy the first episode of the newest era of the Black Shoe Podcast!
