Podcast: Can a super-young Kentucky team be consistently great next season?
Parrish and Norlander discuss Hamidou Diallo and the Wildcats at the top of this podcast
Matt Norlander and I tried to answer those questions at the top of this episode of the Eye on College Basketball podcast. For what it's worth, we both think Diallo will be a first-round pick if he remains in the draft and believe Kentucky should be a preseason top-10 team regardless of Diallo's decision. But, man, history shows it's hard to be consistently great when a team is as young as the Wildcats will be next season. We discussed that and explained why.
After that, we talked about DePaul hiring a high school coach and securing a commitment from a four-star prospect who played for that high school coach -- all within a week. I explained why I have no problem with it and wondered why mid-major programs don't try this kind of thing because, at that level, I think, you'd get more bang for your buck.. It's bad for the Horizon League, clearly. But is it bad for Horizon League coaches? I argued that it isn't. And then we closed on
(I wrote a column on that subject earlier this week. You can read that here.)
Somehow, at the end of this podcast, we started talking about television shows we're currently watching -- among them "Better Call Saul." And I asked Norlander if I should finally try to get caught up on "Game of Thrones."
