Eye on College Basketball Podcast: Next year's best after draft deadline
Gary Parrish, Matt Norlander and Jeff Borzello discuss the NBA Draft deadline, the No. 1 ranking Kentucky will take into the preseason, potential First Team All-Americans, Missouri's hiring of a 59-year-old rookie coach at the Division I level, and much, much more ... including the weather.

- So we all agree that Kentucky should be the preseason No. 1, right?
- How will John Calipari manage all of these frontcourt minutes?

- Which school was hurt most by early defections?
- Will Cliff Alexander be a better college player than Jahlil Okafor?
- Was Missouri smart to hire Kim Anderson?

Beyond all that, we took a shot at predicting preseason All-Americans, and it wasn't easy. Honestly, there's probably not one consensus guy like Marcus Smart, Doug McDermott and Russ Smith were this time last year. That's interesting. Also: We spent some time talking about tornadoes because, well, that's just the way these podcasts go sometimes. Anyway ...
