The Hustler Sports 30 returns for another podcast—though this one is hardly focused on spring sports. Before getting to Vanderbilt baseball’s 14-2 loss to Georgia, the hosts discuss Stephanie White’s firing, potential candidates for the women’s basketball gig, as well as some men’s basketball recruiting.

1:34 — Given what she inherited and the bad luck she endured, did Stephanie White deserve to be fired?

6:20 — Was it the right move to wait this long or should the university have made this move earlier?

12:05 — Who is your favorite candidate for the job and what do you expect the timeline to look like?

19:15 — On another note, head men’s basketball coach Jerry Stackhouse picked up two huge recruits this week. What was your immediate reaction to their commitments, and what’s left for him to accomplish in the recruiting realm?

24:00 — Does this change your perception of Coach Stackhouse?

32:00 — With Issac McBride entering the portal, does Stackhouse need to hunt for a guard in the transfer portal?

38:30 — Onto Vanderbilt baseball: the Commodores dropped a game to Georgia on Thursday, losing by an uncharacteristic 14-2 score. What’s to make of this loss?
