Pod: Gators not special, OSU F4 odds; Duke doomed to repeat history?

Arkansas got itself a signature win, but the Hogs still have a lot to do. A lot. (US Presswire)

It's another highly enjoyable Wednesday podcast with Goodman and Parrish. The lengthy topics are how college football recruiting differs from college hoops; reactions from Florida's big loss and Michigan's big win; talk of Blaine Taylor's midseason firing; and looking at Aaron Craft's game/pro potential. Beyond that, Goodman complains about his two brand-new TVs, I quiz the guys on random teams and ask them to project on success or failure, and Parrish and Goodman recap their TV experiences from last weekend. So much to chat on. It's a quintessential Wednesday's pod, really.


  • From the beginning: It's National Signing Day in college football, and we've got a few ways to compare that to hoops. Some good stories here, too, until Goodman starts complaining about his TV issues. Total left turn here.
  • 7:30: Florida-Arkansas. Uh ... wuh happened?
  • 12:35: JeffGoody.com: your go-to for unicorn stats, Goo Goo Dolls blog entries, bland wardrobe advice and confabs with basketball insiders galore.
  • 13:20: Ohio State-Michigan reaction. Love me some Buckeyes now, but Goodman says no Final Four in their future.
  • 18:30: Really good Aaron Craft discussion. No jokes, just good hoop talk. Yes, we're capable of that!
  • 24:50: Blaine Taylor's firing was unique because ...
  • 28:40: Parrish's philosophy on coach-and-go. I'm fascinated by this. He's right, too.
  • 30:40: Duke-Ryan Kelly. When's he coming back? What's the best scenario here? Should he not be rushed?
  • 34:00: Rapid fire! They kind of go with it. Just a bunch of random teams and questions. The bad ones I blame on Borzello.
  • 39:20: TV talk and looking ahead to the weekend.
