We’re inching closer and closer to the top 10 of our Top 50 College Basketball programs of all time as we embark on spots 15 through 11. These teams feature 2 of the biggest rivals in college sports and a coach that has been at his program for what feels like forever. We also talk about the Pac 12 cancelling hoops until 2021 and also the Kennedy Chandler pickup for Rick Barnes and Tennessee. Remember when we all thought that this would be finished by July? So foolish. Finally we wrap it up with a new segment from the Shark- Last 4 In, First 4 Out.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we got him. I incorrectly attributed that quote to Donald Rumsfeld but whatever, we got our guy John Fanta to hop on to discuss everything from his start in the business, Big East basketball and what are the best wings in Ohio. Enjoy!
Steers, beers and Big 12 basketball. We’re not flying over these states (ba-dum-chhh) as we preview the Big 12 COY, POY and regular season champ. Taylor gives us a recap of his weekend in Kansas. We’ve determined that Kansas State fans are the most underrated wild fan base in the country. We also talk about the NCAA beginning their process to allow athletes to profit from their likeness. We give our Starting 5 of favorite Big 12 players and to be honest, we basically chose between 5 teams in the conference. Finally we round it out with Hugs.
We head south to preview the SEC COY, POY and regular season champ. We went down a serious rabbit hole about Vanderbilt and got excited about Calipari’s early season interviews where he refers to his team as “kids” 24/7. Spoiler: Subbi think this conference stinks but Taylor thinks it will be a compelling season in the SEC. Then we round it out with our Starting 5 of favorite SEC players we watched (some absurd name drops) and Hugs.
You guys… it’s “preview” season. That’s right, college hoops tips off soon and you know before any season, this is the window to get your previews and hot takes in. Today we focus on the ACC. We give our predictions for POY, COY and regular season champion (we will only reference this if our predictions come true). Then we round it out with our Starting 5 of favorite ACC players and Hugs.
Subbi is back from Oktoberfest bloated and still partially hungover. We talk Georgia Tech’s postseason ban and the new Kansas developments. Starting 5 of best rivalry games this past decade. Round it out with Hugs.
-What do Niels Giffey, Kenny George, the movie Eurotrip and Danny McBride’s wife in Righteous Gemstones all have in common? They were mentioned in this episode -Starting 5: College hoops players that we’d want on our football team -Fair Pay to Play Act -Hugs
Taylor went to the Kacey Musgraves concert in Phoenix and not coincidentally, some prisoners escaped in Phoenix… most likely in an effort to see her. Our “Starting 5” this week was the top 5 tips you’d give to incoming freshmen. The MWC is moving to real time stats (ipads etc) and we wrap it up with hugs.
– Auburn’s self imposed sanctions
– The new “Rich Paul Rule” for agents
– New segment called The Starting 5. Who are the top 5 players you hated in college but would love on your team?
We welcome Rotostreet Journal’s Chris Jason to talk schools that had the best football and basketball seasons in one year. Then The Providence Crier returns to talk about his latest twitter beef and Ed Cooley.
