Love this Podcast

Great pod. Feels like im at a bar with my buddies talking college hoops when im just stuck in my cubicle

JcoleEsser ,

Meh

You gain nothing from listening. Marty doesn’t add anything and the elevator doesn’t reach the top floor. Jake is a nice guy that sounds like a 12 year old kid with bad allergies. The show just isn’t good.

dawg juan ,

JV podcast

This podcast is worthless. If you want to listen to a podcast about the SEC and Duke, you’re in the right place. Hard pass
