    Gonzaga dominates but has positive COVID tests, Virginia might have fooled everybody, and Villanova doubles down on casino hoops (College Basketball 11/27)

    Gonzaga dominates but has positive COVID tests, Virginia might have fooled everybody, and Villanova doubles down on casino hoops (College Basketball 11/27)

    Gonzaga has looked incredible on the court through two games, beating KU and Auburn. But the outstanding play has been overshadowed some due to the fact GU has multiple COVID-19 positives in its program. That didn't stop Gonzaga from playing Auburn on Friday. The guys get into that mess of a topic and then discuss Gonzaga's impressive 2-0 start. From there, Virginia getting knocked over by San Francisco (23:15) and Jeremiah Robinson-Earl having arguably the best two-game start of any player are discussed. Norlander also goes behind the scenes to show how Villanova agreed to stick around Bubbleville and surprisingly pick up another game, plus the guys give their initial tidbits and goodies on a few other results from the first 2.5 days of action.

    The season starts in two days and cancellations are landing by the hour (College Basketball 11/23)

    The season starts in two days and cancellations are landing by the hour (College Basketball 11/23)

    It's been the longest offseason in 40-plus years in college basketball, but the week has finally arrived. The season will start Wednesday. There will be games -- and plenty of postponements and cancellations. On Monday, we learned Duke and Arizona will not play their season-openers due to COVID-19. Even the news of Rick Barnes testing positive broke mid-podcast. The guys discuss the logistics around starting the season this week and all the entanglements. They also get to Auburn, which is not expected to be good this season, self-imposing a postseason ban for 2021. Gary Parrish said this practice should no longer be part of the equation in the penalty process for the NCAA.

Evansville not cooperating on transfers

Doesn’t surprise me about Deandre Williams at Memphis. They did the same thing with Dru Smith to Missouri. Absolutely criminal. Same athletic director too.

I hear you Parish

First. Awesome podcast and have been listening for years. It gets better every year. Both GP and DeadLeg (sorry Norlander) are insiders with lots of connections, and as a huge college basketball fan this is the one podcast I keep coming back to.

Second, as a father of 5, I can only imagine and sympathize with what Gary has been going through recently with COVID, bit even more so with what you went through a few years ago. You are inspiring with the positivity.

What is Camel Fighting?

I just started listening to your pod for the top 10 previews, and I am excited to listen to you throughout the season.

A question tho. You have mentioned Leaky Black and Camel Fighting, but have yet to actually discuss it in the previews. Why the obsession with Leaky Black? Do Camels fight? Is this a reference to Campbell University, home of the Camels? Is camel fighting something I should be caring about? I get lost wondering if I am missing something.

Thanks for the laughs and the college ball insight during the absolute dumbest pandemic of our lives. - Jay
