Today marks the first full week of college basketball season, and so, with diametric diligence, we're going to get after in full, too. From now through the end of the season, we'll be delivering three podcasts per week to you. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays is when you can find the new episodes. Subscribe to iTunes. Or the RSS feed. Or, if you're one of those with a Zune, yeah we've got you covered, too.

Season tips Nov. 7
Goodman and Parrish will appear pretty much once per week, and normally they'll get hump day duty. (This week, however, they'll be on Friday.) Borzello, who joins me on today's podcast, will also be a frequent guest, but in no way, shape or form is he worthy of regularly scheduled appearances.

On today's episode, Borzello and I recap our trips to Syracuse and UConn, respectively, and really expand on who Syracuse is and how successful it can be this year. Then we talk which recruits hit up which schools, and which of those Borzello thinks is most likely not to commit tothe school he was at Friday.

We wrap up things with an eight-minute conversation that tweaks and prods at the Top 25 (and one) Parrish and Goodman compiled last week. Duke too high at 6? What about Cinci and A&M -- are they getting too much respect? And which teams deserved to be ranked that weren't? (I forget to mention my belief Washington is a top-25 team.)

Enjoy. And forgive me for all my uhs. I'm working on that. I will never apologize my nougaty tenor tone, though.
