When breaking news happens, In The Circle will be ready to talk about it (even when one of us is flying into an airport when it happens). Very few things will make us scrap our whole schedule and work on a new show. What happened in Ann Arbor on Wednesday Afternoon was one of those things. When “THE” Adam Schefter tweets about it, then it’s a big freaking deal. In this emergency episode, Eric Lopez and Victor Anderson break down the surprising and sudden news of legendary Michigan Head Coach Carol Hutchins announcing her retirement on Wednesday. The guys look back at her Hall of Fame career and reflect on her emotional post-game press conference after the Orlando Regional in May.
We will play back a portion of our interview with Coach Hutch when she came on the podcast last February and hear from several Wolverines, from Jordan Taylor to Marissa Young, among others, about playing for Hutch. Finally, we share our memories of one of the game’s titans.
