Love the Pod! Need to get an interview from Kevin Keatts

Would be better if…

Jon Rothstein knows the players and teams. But, the podcast is so robotic and there are so many annoying repeated words and phrases that it gets distracting.
Jon says the word “obviously” so much that it could become a drinking game. Also, the rote ads and stock talk is so predictable that it detracts from the show. Catchphrase tries like “Put the women and children to bed..” and “Same Bat Time, Same Bat Channel” and “We want to be your bible for college basketball” are truly off putting and sadly lame.
Someone needs to edit and coach Jon about these things. That would improve the podcast dramatically.

Bring Back the Chief! ILL ,

Not enough

Been looking for a college hoops podcast where the host is informative and knows what he’s talking about. Jon is definitely that guy.

I wish the episodes were longer. I wish there was more commentary in each episode where Jon just talks. The interview takes up 95% of the show, and the other 5% is a lot of Jon trying to be flashy. I wish it was 50% show and 50% Jons opinion because as a diehard college basketball fan, Jon is one of the few people I talk and listen to who knows more than me. I also wish he would answer more questions from twitter. Again, I’m listening to this podcast to learn the current details of the sport and the great players the sport has outside the power 5. I wish more commentary was provided and more information was given to engage the die hard fan.
