Eye on College Basketball Podcast: Doug McDermott leading POY race?

I sat down early Monday with Jeff Borzello and Matt Norlander to look back, look ahead and discuss a number of issues in the sport. Among them:

  • Was Mike Krzyzewski smart to bench Jabari Parker in Duke's loss at Notre Dame?
  • Can anybody remember another star player getting benched like that?
  • Which upset from the weekend was the most surprising?
  • Should Kansas still be the pick to win the Big 12?
  • Is it time to remove Andrew Wiggins from Player of the Year consideration?
  • How about the job San Diego State's Steve Fisher is doing?
  • And what about Cincinnati's Mick Cronin?
  • Was Connecticut's early resume misleading?
  • Should Doug McDermott be the leading candidate for National Player of the Year?
  • Why doesn't he get the same kind of attention that other POY candidates get?
  • Should McDermott consider growing a mustache or something?

Beyond all that, we got into a pretty random (but hopefully interesting) conversation about cheating at the high-major level -- specifically why the rewards far outweigh any risks, and why more programs aren't caught cheating even though there's presumably lots of cheating going on. Also: BCS picks! Because, why not?
