I am typing this after midnight. So Selection Sunday is now a thing of the past. And Matt Norlander and I have been writing since the moment the Selection Show ended. And we’re still writing. But we took a break around 11 p.m. ET Sunday to record a new Eye on College Basketball podcast. And what it turned into is a 64-minute conversation about the NCAA Tournament bracket from a variety of angles.
We discussed North Carolina’s No. 1 seed. And Duke’s resume. And how the selection committee again screwed Wichita State -- which by extension screwed Dayton and Kentucky. We talked about John Calipari possibly returning to Memphis for the Sweet 16. We talked about Rhode Island as a sleeper pick. We argued about how the committee uses non-league strength of schedule. We projected the Final Four. We picked a national champion and then randomly got into a conversation about the challenges programs outside of the power structure face when it comes to scheduling quality games -- and about Bill Walton’s hilarious approach during the Pac-12 Tournament to discussing Allonzo Trier’s PED suspension.
The podcast is all over the place.
But if you love college basketball, I think you’ll like it.
The latest Eye on College Basketball podcast is below.
Give it a listen.
