‘Titus & Tate’ talks about Patrick Ewing, Wagner and Bronny on final show at FOX Sports
Ask any college basketball fan what their favorite segment on the “Titus & Tate” podcast, and chances are you’ll get plenty of responses regarding the ever-popular “Good Guy/Bag Guy.”
It was only fitting that the duo close out their last show at FOX Sports with their beloved track.
Both Mark Titus and Tate Frazier tip their hats to Georgetown men’s basketball coach Patrick Ewing as “good guy” of the week. Ewing’s team snapped a 29-game Big East losing streak with an 81-76 victory over DePaul on Tuesday night.
Prior to Tuesday, Georgetown — one of the most accomplished programs in college basketball history — hadn’t won a conference game since March 13, 2021. The win ended the longest losing streak in the history of the Big East Conference.
“Bravo to Georgetown,” said co-host Frazier. “I’m glad they got the win. I can’t believe what I was watching, but it was like history.”
Patrick Ewing conducts The Good Guy / Bag Guy of the Week
FOX Sports’ Mark Titus and Tate Frazier talk about the “Good Guy” and “Bag Guy” of college basketball this week.
Ewing’s team will now travel to the Big Apple to take on Midsummer Sunday at Madison Square Garden (2 p.m. ET on FS1). The Hoyas will be looking for their first two-game winning streak since the season started 2-0 with wins over Coppin State and Green Bay.
While Ewing was named the “Good Guy” of the week, Titus and Tate considered the Wagner family – Milt, Dajuan and Dajuan Jr. – as their “Bag Guy(s)”.
All three members of the Wagner family were all honored as McDonald’s All-Americans after Dajuan Jr., who is one of the nation’s top prospects, was named for the 2023 game. A 6-foot-3 guard inches and 165 pounds from Camden High School (New Jersey), Wagner Jr. is the No. 3 ranked recruit in the class of 2023, according to the 247Sports.com composite rankings. He signed with Jon Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats.
Milt Wagner, who played in Louisville from 1981 to 1986, played in the 1981 McDonald’s All-American Game. He led the Cardinals to the 1986 NCAA championship, as well as three Final Fours. His son, Dajuan Wagner, also played for Calipari, spending a year at Memphis during the 2001-02 campaign. He was named National High School Player of the Year in 2001 and competed in the McDonald’s All-American Game that same year.
“It’s kind of cool, but it also makes you feel old,” Frazier said. “The idea that the grandsons are now All-Americans. … Dajuan’s son, Peja’s [Stojakovic] son, LeBron [James] sons are All-Americans. Yeah. I do not like it.”
The final segment of Titus and Tate’s show featured their “Fraud Power Rankings” segment.
The duo talked about Bronny James’ future and whether Ohio State — where Titus played from 2006 to 2010 — remains among his top schools.
“I’m willing to say, unless you hear it from me, Bronny James at Ohio State is still online,” Titus said.
The duo then closed the show with a few final farewells, but not before jokingly placing themselves at number one on this week’s “Fraud Power Rankings.”
“When we got here at FOX it was January 2020, and we didn’t know what the future of the show looked like, we just knew we loved talking about college basketball with each other,” Frazier said. “We had no idea what this was going to become. We had a great time.”
