Eye on College Basketball Podcast: What's up with Wiggins?

I sat down Thursday morning with ESPN television star Jeff Goodman to look back, look ahead and discuss a number of issues in the sport. Among them:

  • Are podcasts as fun when there's no Matt Norlander to clown?
  • Does Goodman miss being, you know, a writer?
  • Why does he hate Andrew Wiggins so much?
  • Where would Goodman draft Wiggins right now?
  • Who will go No. 1 in June's NBA Draft?
  • Does he see Jabari Parker or Joel Embiid actually returning to school?
  • Is Kentucky a true threat to win the national title?
  • Can Kansas win it all without a great natural point guard?
  • Does Goodman love Doug McDermott more than he loved Robbie Hummel?
  • What are we to make of Richard Pitino's early success at Minnesota?

Beyond all that, we discussed the preseason hype connected to Wiggins and wondered how much of it was rooted in one performance at the Peach Jam. (A lot, we agreed.)
