Schoch Factor Podcast, Ep. 3: Power Fives As Scooby Doo Characters And MoreThe Schoch Factor
Welcome to The Schoch Factor, a podcast featuring former UVA relief pitcher Stephen Schoch and Jake Mintz and Jordan Shusterman of @CespedesBBQ. This episode begins with a salute to the beginning of conference play before a spirited discussion debating which of the five characters in Scooby Doo are which Power 5 conference. Next, they discuss the dearth of top-tier college pitching with the loss of Carson Whisenhunt and Landon Sims for the season (among others) and why this year’s college baseball spotlight has been more on the hitters than the pitchers. Then it’s time for another ad break — this time we hear from a new sponsor, Bus Beers*. Next, a discussion about what Jake and Stephen liked to drink before coming out of the bullpen. Then it’s time for Show and Go, featuring our favorite moments of the week that was, including: Tre’ Morgan’s unbelievable play, Portland’s closer backflipping, an ump show for Hawaii, a light show at Southern Miss, Nolan McLean hitting a ball 472 feet, Ben Joyce throwing a baseball 104 MPH, and Kevin Kopps pitching in big league spring training. We then go BEYOND D-I with an incredible exploration of the two longest-tenured coaches in college baseball: Siena’s Tony Rossi, and D-II Bentley’s Bob DeFelice. We conclude with the remarkable comeback story of Richmond left-hander Jack Buckley.
