    Our league previews continue with a dive into the largest conference of them all: the 15-team ACC. Norlander and GP open with a riff on Coach K’s send-off season, then get into projected league order, talk Paolo Banchero as the best freshman and likely player in the ACC, but also discuss if there’s a true national championship contender in this conference, the five biggest storylines heading in, and every player of note to know. And as mentioned in the episode, a shoutout thanks to Reddit user UMD_Terps for tracking all of Trivia Time! last season and providing these graphs to show who came out on top. We love our listeners.

    We're again loading up our preseason podcast schedule by delivering you episodes almost every weekday from now up until the opening day of the season. The first of our league previews is on the American, which has two Final Four contenders (Houston, Memphis), three more NCAA Tournament hopefuls (Wichita State, SMU, UCF) and then a drop-off in the bottom half of the league. Norlander and Parrish spend the first half of the episode discussing the top two, then get into the need-to-knows with the other teams. A fun unexpected music discussion wraps this episode, spurred by a controversial ranking from Norlander that has nothing to do with basketball teams.

Best Podcast for any sport

Of all the podcasts that I listen to for different sports, this is my favorite. Parrish and Norlander are funny without being annoying and are very knowledgeable. Could we get some thoughts on the Arkansas program landing two top-10 recruits for the 2022 class? Seems like that’s flying under the radar a little bit

Shouts to Corliss Williamson. Shouts to US Reed. Shouts to Ronnie and Ron Brewer. Shouts to my little homie Pat Bradley, legend.

Great Pod!

Long time listener first time rater/reviewer. Parish and Norlander are absolutely phenomenal! My favorite podcast. As a jayhawk i am locked in on college basketball year round so it’s great to have these guys putting our content for folks like me. I do have a question tho. My buddies and i got into a heated debate. Which program has the best crop of head coaches throughout their history? Would love to hear your guys thoughts! Thanks!
