Podcast: Big recruits, UNC's issues and a weekend of upsets
How bad is UNC? How good is Duke for the next few years? What to make of all those recruiting coups from Friday? Enjoy the Monday edition of the College Basketball podcast with Gary Parrish, Matt Norlander and Jeff Borzello.
I sat down, after an interesting weekend of college basketball, with Matt Norlander and Jeff Borzello to look back, look ahead and discuss a number of issues. Among them:
•How bad is North Carolina without P.J. Hairston and Leslie McDonald?
•How good can UNC be even with them?
•Does John Calipari have the new Fab Five?
•Should Cliff Alexander's parents have prevented the Illinois pumpfake?
•Will Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones bring Duke a title?
•How much does Coach K's USA Basketball connection help in recruiting?
•Would we be talking about Aaron Gordon more if he'd been in the Champions Classic?
•Should Michigan State, Kansas or Louisville be No. 1?
Beyond that, we got into a spirited debate about Belmont, of all things. Pretty sure it resulted in some name-calling. The latest Eye on College Basketball podcast is below. Give it a listen.
