The Slumpbuster

Nov 12, 2021

Welcome in Slumpbusters! In this episode of the Slumpbuster Podcast, Kyle & Ju-Ju tackle the latest breaking news in the world of the NFL, NBA and College Football.

For the second time in four weeks, the Purdue Boilermakers have upset a team in the College Football Top-5. On October 16, Purdue walked away with a 24-7 win over the Iowa Hawkeyes. This past Saturday they opposed a 8-0 Michigan State Spartans team led by Mel Tucker. Purdue quarterback Aidan O'Connell threw for an amazing 536 yards with three touchdowns to beat Sparty 40-29. This is the first time in College Football history an unranked team has beat two teams in the Top-5 by double digits. Will Ohio State be on upset alert going against the hot Boilermakers? (1:23) #Purdue

Our next segment Ju-Ju laments over the failures of the San Francisco 49ers. Kyle Shanahan is the owner of a 31-39 win-loss record in his time as an NFL head coach. His record has entirely been accrued in his time in San Francisco. Is Shanahan on the coaching hot seat following a 31-17 beat down by the Arizona Cardinals. In that game the Cardinals were missing Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins, J.J. Watt and others. Does this speak to a bigger problem with Shanahan, John Lynch and within the 49ers ownership? Ju-Ju explains and talks the future should San Francisco continue to struggle. (5:00) #49ers

The NBA is about a month in and Kyle's second Power Rankings update is on the way. Who will be the biggest riser? Who will be the biggest faller? And we have some developing news with Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers. Could the Boston Celtics be the team most in play to make a trade for Simmons? Can Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown continue as a dynamic 1-2 punch? (27:45) #BenSimmons

The Texas Longhorns have lost their last four games in Steve Sarkisian's first year in Austin. Will Sark still remain the Longhorns head coach in the 2022 season? We also discuss the legend of 'Pole Assassin.' (39:45) #HookEm
