Podcast: Ken Pomeroy doesn't buy the Marshall Henderson hype

Jeff Withey and the Jayhawks took such a bad loss to TCU, does it eliminate them from the title convo? (US Presswire)

Welcome back, loyal listeners. And welcome new listeners, too. Statistical sage Ken Pomeroy makes his return to the podcast Friday, only this time we have to hash a few things out. There's a disagreement between the coverage and legitimacy of Marshall Henderson's play, and it's a good debate. We also gab about the array of upsets that have transformed the top of college hoops this season. Who says the sport is down? Well, it does need improvement, but in certain doses, and Ken addresses that as well, in addition to a number of other hodgepodge hoops topics. You'll enjoy it, no doubt.


  • From the beginning: While my I gently weep over my loss of a story, a blogger's tale of woe if there ever was one, we talk Nate Wolters' 53 points.
  • 4:20: The college-basketball-needs-to-be-fixed meme is approaching a point where it's half legitimate, half played out. Let's be pragmatic in discussing what needs tweaking, not outright restructuring.
  • 10:25: Top teams keep losing. Any reason why the season seems to be giving us more losing among top 10 teams? Or is it actually not as much chaos at the top as people believe? Is this still based on perception?
  • 15:00: Our Marshall Henderson debate.
  • 22:30: Because Kansas was embarrassed by TCU, does history mandate the Jayhawks cannot win the title?
  • 27:50: My sleeper choice for the Sweet 16 -- right now.
  • 31:30: More rapid fire! Yeah!
  • 39:05: Wrap-up includes more therapy session for yours truly. I'm almost over it, I swear.
