A special summer episode of Boot Up, as LSU wraps up its August practice sessions before heading to Spain for its once-every-four-years international summer trip.First, we break down the new roster, including the newcomers for the Tigers, as well as the growth of the veterans. Will Wade talks playing smaller and faster, developing a motion offense, and building a team identity before and during the Spain trip. After that, we sit down with LSU guards Javonte Smart and Skylar Mays, the Tigers' Bayou Backcourt. Skylar and Javonte give an overview of the new and returning faces on the roster, talk about growing in Baton Rouge and representing LSU, and preview the trip to Spain.
The nation's capital is swept up in the #BootUp movement. We start today's show with a quick sitdown with the most famous person to ever appear on the podcast. After that very serious conversation, we dive deep into Michigan State. We talk personnel, offensive and defensive tendencies, and maybe some areas LSU can try to take advantage of, as they prepare to face perhaps the best team they've faced all season. 
Ever been inside a locker room during March Madness? Here’s your chance. Hear from Tremont Waters on his game-winning shot, Skylar Mays on his clutch 3, and Darius Days on his big day off the bench. Plus, sounds from the celebration. And listeners in the Anchor app get a bonus song at the end of the episode.

Just the audio of my chat with Corey Vinson, William Harrell, and Mitchell Fillinger, three of the managers for the LSU Basketball team. We talk about the high demands of their jobs, the networking opportunities and lessons they've learned, and, of course, the all-important Manager Games, where they take on the managers from other schools throughout the season. Follow them on Twitter @LSUMBBManagers so you can vote to help them advance in the Manager Games, which begin this month. 
On today's episode, we recap LSU's 80-59 win over Vanderbilt and hear from Skylar Mays, Marshall Graves, and Tremont Waters on what it was like to cut down the nets and celebrate the Tigers' 11th ever SEC title. Graves, a former walk-on, hit four threes to help LSU clinch the title, while Mays and Waters assumed critical leadership roles during a roller coaster week of a roller coaster season. After that, I sit down with Corey Vinson, William Harrell, and Mitchell Fillinger, three of the managers for the LSU Basketball team.

Go back in time with me.It's May 2018. LSU has just finished, by all accounts, a successful season, a season of marked improvement. But Will Wade wasn't satisfied, because he's a competitor, and he hated losing seven straight SEC road games. So he hit the road, to learn and adapt and correct those road woes.Fast forward to present day, and LSU has made history, winning all nine SEC road games and setting the stage for an SEC title on Saturday vs. Vanderbilt.On today's show, we recap that road resurgence, hear from Tremont Waters, Skylar Mays, and Emmitt Williams on the Florida win and the task at hand vs. Vanderbilt, and finish with a scouting report of the Commodores. Here's a link to the story I reference in today's long introduction. https://lsul.su/2UkF1Jf
