Podcast: The time has come for our grand Memphis debate

By Matt Norlander | College Basketball Writer

Memphis has a gaudy record but lacks enough good wins to ensure an at-large berth, even now. (USATSI)

Have we got a good one today. Parrish and Goodman are back, Goodman fresh off his trip to Milwaukee, where he had a run-in with Jim Boeheim that went mini-viral. But before the Syracuse chatter, we must talk about Memphis -- and does it get entertainingly long-winded and argumentative. The pod has mostly ignored Memphis for obvious reasons this year, but following a two-point loss at Xavier, well, it's time to release the hounds.

We move on from there to talk Gonzaga as the rightful heir of a No. 1 seed; the pool of 12 teams still in contention for a No. 1; why we're still smarting from the officiating in Kansas-Iowa State; and who else did Goodman almost get in a fight with? Give up the goods, man. Settle in and enjoy.

Pod menu:

  • From the beginning: Why wait? MEMPHIS. It's so on. Listen to a man go through radio therapy, basically. Parrish is like a dude on Law & Order, just ready as ever for this.
  • 11:40: And here comes the KenPom argument -- again. Or should I say anti-argument from Goodman. I've never been more proud of Parrish.
  • 17:30: After all that, Memphis or Tennessee: Who gets the final bid in a hypothetical? Memphis beat Tennessee but Tennessee has much better wins overall, both in and out of league.
  • 19:15: Gonzaga is a No. 1. I've said it for a few weeks, and I'm prone to believe it still going forward, even with a loss at BYU Thursday night.
  • 23:30: Can I just say how much I love the fact we're at Feb. 27 and 12 teams are still in the mix for a No. 1 seed? This has no precedent.
  • 26:05: Goodman goes more into his near-quibble with Boeheim Monday night.
  • 32:15: Yes, we have to go back and discuss Kansas-Iowa State.
  • 36:10: I want these guys' five picks for First Team All-Americans, just to see if anything changes between now and the end of the season.
