OTP Cast Logo200Your final post for this work week is the special edition OTPcast recorded live when Mark Sandy was introduced as the new Ball State Athletic Director last week. In true OTP fashion, there were some major technical difficulties that made publishing this things a real pain in the derrier.

But it’s still awesome all the same.

In this episode, Jason and Alan are back with a special ADcast to welcome Mark Sandy and toot the Pylon’s horn for breaking the story.

OTP Cast Logo200BSU and me, we go way back
For better or for worse
I can’t believe this season’s gone
And the proof’s in the way it hurts
For months on end I’ve had my doubts
Denying every tear
I can’t believe it’s over now
Cause I know that I still need games here
You say I’m crazy
‘Cause you think I have too much fun
But when you download the podcast
I know I’m not the only one
