TNIAAP returns and with it a very special guest.
Brian Tarrant ('96) played football for Syracuse between 1991 and 1995. He was a member of the team that beat Ohio State in the Hall of Fame Bowl, topped Colorado in the Fiesta Bowl and clobbered Clemson in the Gator Bowl (nice way to go out as a senior).
After graduating, he took a job with MC2, a leading designer and builder of exhibits and marketing environments. Bringing things full circle, Tarrant worked with Syracuse Athletics to design the look and feel of the Orange Basketball Hall of Fame in the Carmelo K. Anthony Center (check it out in 3D here).
Brian and I discuss his playing days at Syracuse, the impact of Marvin Graves, what it means to have Coach P back in the Big East, how the Hall of Fame project came together and why it's so important for Syracuse fans (and incoming recruits) to see SU's history up close and personal.
You can listen below (apologies for the scratchy sound), you can download the podcast from TalkShoe and feel calmed by our voices during your morning yoga practice, you can subscribe to the RSS feed and you can even download it off iTunes like the cool kids do.
