This week Coach Hawk chops it up with the University of Illinois Men's Basketball Head Coach, Brad Underwood. Brad talks about his long path to becoming a Divison 1 Head Coach, the challenges and rewards of leading Juco programs, and the joy he and his current Illini team felt upon finally being able to gather in the same gym and put in some work.
Coach Underwood also discusses self-analysis and lifestyle change during the Covid-19 Era. Specifically, his choice to merge his Zoom calls with 8-10 miles walks and his goal of a fifty-pound weight loss...hilariously inspired by his daughter pointing out that years of the coaching lifestyle had led to him developing several chins.
The tip-off question is lighthearted yet important, putting Coach Hawk on the spot to name his favorite sports films of all-time. Unfortunately and serendipitously, the tip-off question leads Hawk into a brief remembrance of All-Pro NFL Running Back, Gale Sayers who recently transitioned at age 77.
This week's Buzzer-Beater centers around criticism.
