PODCAST: P.J. Hairston, Jerian Grant gone; Kentucky-Louisville rivalry
We hope you have a great holiday weekend. Before you dip out for the holidays, be sure to listen to the podcast. Lots of college basketball and Christmas convo today.
I sat down early Monday with Matt Norlander and Jeff Borzello to look back, look ahead and discuss a number of issues in the sport. Among them:
- What to make of the P.J. Hairston situation?
- How wild was Ohio State's comeback win over Notre Dame?
- Can the Irish make the NCAA tournament without Jerian Grant?
- Arizona is No. 1, sure. But who really is the nation's best team?
- Isn't it normal for players to not understand rivalries like the UK-UL rivalry?
Beyond that, we got into a conversation at the end about the stress of bouncing from one house to another on Christmas Day, and about whether the birth of my second child will interrupt next Monday's podcast. Also: Am I really naming my son after Oliver Purnell?
