    A conversation about Kentucky in the Bahamas and Duke in Canada (8.16)

    It's a pretty slow time in college basketball right now. No coaches are on administrative leave. No notable players have been arrested. There's not much going on. But Kentucky just wrapped a four-game trip to the Bahamas. And Duke is in the middle of a three-game trip in Canada. So Matt Norlander and Gary Parrish had no problem getting 20-plus minutes out of those two things. Some fun developments occurring with both teams, and for different reasons.

    Parrish and Norlander give instant reaction to major/controversial NCAA rule changes (8.8)

    The NCAA on Wednesday announced sweeping changes to college basketball's bylaws and recruiting calendar -- and new legislation that gives more entitlements to student-athletes. But how much will it matter? Will it solve any problems within sport? Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander answered those questions in this episode. The announcements created some nice headlines that'll possibly fool the uninformed. But here's the truth: All of this is an undeniable reaction to what the ongoing FBI investigation has exposed. But none of these announced changes actually address the issues that the FBI investigation exposed.

    With the future of the July recruiting period hanging in the balance, how will the NCAA vote? (7.17)

    Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander spent the week in North Augusta, S.C. and took in their annual viewing of the Peach Jam. There is speculation and real concern from virtually every coach they spoke to that the NCAA is going to overhaul July recruiting to the point where coaches are no longer allowed to attend tournament events that are held by apparel companies. What's the NCAA up to, and will they change their plan close to the 11th hour? Parrish wrote a column that sparked a lot of discussion at Peach Jam, and Norlander reported out a story with sources close to the vote who went on the record about where things stand. Overall, the future of recruiting hasn't been this foggy in as long as many can remember. There's a lot to unpack, and a lot to cover with all that happened at Peach Jam and beyond.

    Kansas or Kentucky for No. 1? Or ... Gonzaga? (7.6)

    Welcome back to the pod. On this episode, Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander try to get to the bottom of who should be No. 1 heading into the season.

    Should Wendell Carter's mom really be 'pissed' at Coach K? Should Kevin Ollie lose millions? (6.27)

    Matt Norlander and Gary Parrish open with discussing Wendell Carter Jr.'s mother's comments about how she was "pissed" when Marvin Bagley III reclassified, enrolled at Duke and caused her son to play a secondary role. After that, the guys discuss ... 18:45: Thanks to the late additions of Reid Travis and Ashton Hagans, Parrish has Kentucky ranked No. 1 in the CBS Sports Top 25 (and one). 24:20: And now there seems to be mounting pressure on John Calipari to deliver another championship to Kentucky. What's reasonable, and unreasonable, for fans to expect of coaches. 37:28: This UConn-Kevin Ollie situation isn't a good look for anybody. School officials are doing real damage to their reputation and the reputation of an alum who won them a championship in 2014. But will it save them millions of dollars? Yes, perhaps.
