One of CBS' premier college basketball analysts joins me again. Seth Davis is preparing to basically spend the next month sleeping at CBS headquarters, as he'll be providing insight and analysis for the network. So before he hunkers down, it was time to get him back on the pod. We've our disagreements on the RPI's legitimacy -- and on Jordan Taylor's value and his season so far. .
- From the beginning: Treadmill tips. Yeah, I kind of get this thing off to a rousing start, let me tell you.
- 2:52: OK, hoops. Duke is the first topic. Why does the perception of this team fluctuate so much over the course of three months?
- 9:00: Seth is down on Jordan Taylor. I am not. Let's talk about it.
- 13:22: Might as well get into the RPI and let Seth have one more lobbying session for it. This is pretty civil, all things considered. I'm actually proud of myself for not letting this devolve into a 30-minute back-and-forth, which is what I did with myself in the mirror this morning. Day's getting better.
- 20:56: The refs suck, by the way. Actually, they don't. But everyone thinks so. Let's clear that up and remind people why Teddy Valentine isn't such a bad dude.
- 27:13: Why is the Player of the Year race a two-man one with Anthony Davis and Thomas Robinson? Doesn't Draymond Green deserve to be at that table?
- 30:00: NATE WOLTERS ALERT.
- 30:37: The pod wraps up with some of our stories of how Seth and I got into college hoops when we were young.
