College Basketball Podcast: UCLA believing it could lure John Calipari from Kentucky is comical
Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander also discuss the upcoming Final Four

Matt Norlander and I opened this episode of the CBS Sports "Eye On College Basketball" podcast on UCLA's total waste of time with Calipari. After that, the conversation went like this:

- 36:00: Belmont's Rick Byrd has retired from coaching.
