    Is Alabama No. 1?

The guys sort out their concerns with Houston and why they're still as safe as anyone to bet on, whether Alabama should be the No. 1 team in the country after another dominant week and Kevin's thoughts on UCLA as an elite team after seeing them play Arizona State and Arizona last week.

    Who We Trust The Most

    Who We Trust The Most

    Nothing makes sense anymore. Kentucky stunk, and then it didn't. UConn was championship-bound, then it wasn't. Illinois and Iowa were dead in the water, now they can't lose. Ohio State was emerging in the Big Ten. Now they're 2-4.

    Things are changing by the day in college basketball, and the guys are here to help you make sense of it all. They digest where you should stand on Kentucky, UConn's guard play concerns and whether it's fixable, which four teams they trust the most in college basketball and an ode to Iowa State, which has built a legit winner under TJ Otzelberger.

    The Big Ten is Upside Down

    The Big Ten is Upside Down

    Brad and Kevin continue trying to sort through what's real and what's not in college basketball right now. They start in the Big Ten, where preseason title contenders Indiana and Illinois have seen things go awry early in conference play while surprise teams like Northwestern and Penn State continue to show teeth. They hit on Arizona's disastrous loss to Washington State and what it says about their title candidacy, whether Kansas State is for real after a pair of road wins, what's next at Texas after Chris Beard's firing, and what other jobs might be trending towards opening.

Most informative, detailed CBB podcast

Kevin and Brad know their stuff arguably more than any other college basketball analysts in the country. There are other good CBB podcasts out there, but I keep coming back to CBB central because of the level of detail that they go into for every team, every player, and every conference. Player by player, they know the nuts and bolts of everything and aren’t afraid to make predictions that are against the grain of other national media members. It’s a must-add to your CBB podcast intake.
