Before you get too nervous, we promise to only talk about the Gonzaga game for about ten minutes. After that, it’s all smiles on Shut Up and Jimmer. This week, we go deep on our favorite coaching decision of the season — starting the one and only, Gavin Baxter.

Join Robby McCombs and Steve Pierce as we break down the above-the-rim high of Gavin Baxter’s first start at BYU. We look at the changes he brings to BYU’s offense and defense, as well as what he can do to help take the pressure off Yoeli Childs. We also recognize the outstanding performance of Nick Emery against LMU and what that potentially means for him moving forward. And then we finish up by giving a short preview of BYU’s upcoming games against Portland and Pacific this week.

Shut Up and Jimmer is available on all major podcast platforms — including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts and Stitcher. New episodes are released weekly on Mondays throughout the season, where we’ll break down the latest action from the boys in blue, look ahead to future matchups and maybe even talk a little recruiting.
