Good but suggestion
I have listened to this podcast for a solid year now and have recently started to lose interest in the interviews. I would love it if a portion of the show could be more directed towards headlines, and big games or results. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan, but I am a little bit unimpressed by the lack of information on the actual game. If anyone else is like me you should check out the eye on college basketball podcast.
Be more critical on the picks segment
You guys act like every pick Andy makes is the perfect pick and then every pick he gets wrong everybody would have gotten it wrong. Show some disagreement and be more critical, the yes man approach to that segment is nauseating.
Update: How in the heck does Chad not challenge Andy when he said on a recent pod that he usually picks all the final 4 teams right and this is just an off year? Seriously? Andy is not Nostradamus
I ❤️ Andy Katz
I have always loved listening to Andy Katz on the Big Ten Network, so having a podcast hosted by him is pretty awesome. The material is current and very entertaining. My favorite part is when Katz does his weekly game predictions.
Great Podcast Andy! Keep it up!
