    Duke Is King, Marty Is Right... Again + Feast Week Recap

    On today’s episode of Barstool Bench Mob, Marty lets the world know that his Blue Devils are the cream of the crop after they took down #1 Gonzaga on Friday night (03:23). Rico and Jake give Marty his flowers for being spot on thus far this season with his analysis. How did the Blue Devils take down the Bulldogs? Will Duke be #1 in the AP Poll on Monday?

    We then move on to the other Feast Week tournaments around the country (19:36). Baylor ran through the Battle For Atlantis and look like they could make another deep run despite losing a ton of players. What’s going on with Syracuse? And Marty has thoughts on one of UConn’s best players.

    Indiana's Trayce Jackson-Davis + Gonzaga Destroys The Bruins, Arizona's Back + Is The WCC Legit?

    Indiana's Trayce Jackson-Davis + Gonzaga Destroys The Bruins, Arizona's Back + Is The WCC Legit?

    On today’s episode, the guys break down the much-hyped but disappointing #1 vs. #2 blowout in Vegas. One bright spot in the game was the return of Dick Vitale. Dicky V is college basketball and we love to see him back where he belongs and wish him the best. On the court, Gonzaga ran UCLA out of the T-Mobile Center (05:35). Is this the same story we’ve seen in years’ past for the Bulldogs? And for UCLA, was the #2 ranking a product of last season’s tournament run?

    Up next - the guys react to Arizona’s Sunday upset of Michigan (19:21). Tommy Lloyd has the Wildcats as an early-season surprise while Juwan Howard’s squad drops it’s second game in a row. Could Arizona be the favorite in the Pac-12? And is the Michigan loss another indictment of a struggling Big Ten?

    We then give Jake a little grief over his hate towards Wisconsin after the Badgers made their way into the Maui Invitational Finals (28:15). And Rico needs an intervention after Oregon gets blown out again, this time to St. Mary’s. Is the West Coast Conference a legit conference after a surprisingly great start (36:45)? Marty doesn’t believe the buzz.

    Then - we are joined by Indiana forward Trayce Jackson-Davis (45:07). The Hoosier big man talks about noticing Rico, Marty, and Jake at Assembly Hall, his relationship with coach Mike Woodson, and how he feels about IU’s ranking in the most recent AP Poll.

    We wrap up the episode previewing some of the best remaining matchups for Feast Week (01:09:47) before Beating The Buzzer (01:16:32) and The Box Score Game.

    Purdue Rolls Through Mohegan Sun, The Bonnies Are Hot + Other Early Tournament Reactions

    On today’s episode, we start off recapping the Hall Of Fame Tip Off Tournament where Purdue took down North Carolina and Villanova (05:03). Could the Boilermakers be the best team in the country? And is it time to hit the panic button for Villanova after the Wildcats blew another second-half lead? Next - St. Bonaventure and Marquette met in the Charleston Classic finals on Sunday (23:19). Nobody saw Shaka Smart’s Golden Eagles competing at this level. Meanwhile - the Bonnies are 4-0 and look like favorites in the A-10. We then give our final thoughts on the Gavitt Games where the Big East impressed against the Big Ten with wins over ranked Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio State (30:20). We wrap things up with Beating The Buzzer (44:58) and The Box Score game (51:14).

East coast bias

This is a great podcast but it seems to focus 90% of the time on east coast teams which makes sense because they’re all from the east coast but cmon Gonzaga, UCLA, Arizona and BYU are all great this year. I’d love to hear more accurate analysis on them because right now it seems like they can’t name more than 3 players on each team.
