Podcast: Is Boeheim overrated? Is Syracuse?

With Jim Boeheim notching win No. 900 this week, we have to look back on his career and see where he stands among the all-time greats. There's a good horde that sees Boeheim and Syracuse as overrated. Doug Gottlieb said as much this week. Interesting, though, but I disagree. What about Jeff Goodman and Gary Parrish? It's Wednesday, so they're back on. Beyond Boeheim, we've got a whole bunch to talk about. Whereas a lot of the Wednesday pods can meander, and I love when they do, this one's got a tighter focus in its quick hits on a few teams and stories.

And then Parrish wraps it up by wondering how he can top a man who just bought his wife a Mercedes for Christmas.


  • From the beginning: Cool. So Parrish is losing his voice, Goodman's got people building things in house. But no realignment talk, we promise! We start the Boeheim debate right off the top.
  • 7:30: Boeheim and K and who will end up with more wins.
  • 11:30: Cincinnati-Xavier rekindles the rivalry Wednesday night.
  • 14:30: Indiana-Butler chatter.
  • 19:20: We're really already thinking Miami's the second-best team in the ACC? This is why the ACC can't have nice things.
  • 21:30: Does it feel like this season, through six weeks, has something of a lurch to it?
  • 24:05: Arizona-Florida. Goodman was there. Arizona won, but are the Wildcats really a top-five team?
  • 25:45: Memphis. Of course: Memphis. Allow Parrish to fill you in on the latest, including what I find to be the stat of the week in college hoops.
  • 31:25: Wrap-up includes our holiday wishes and Parrish's laments that he's bound to fail as a husband this Christmas.
