    #353: Season Recap Series: Big East

    #353: Season Recap Series: Big East

    Our postseason conference postmortems continue with the home of the back-to-back national champions: the Big East! We go through the highs (the top 3), the lows (good god, DePaul and Georgetown), and everything in between for the league that is the pride of John Fanta.
    Plus, we discuss the state of each program and whether each fanbase should feel encouraged going forward. Will the BEast see a resurgence in NCAA appearances in 2025? We certainly think so...

    #350: Coaching Hire Report Cards

    On the true debut of our offseason pod schedule, the fellas give all 60 hires a grade from A through F (apologies to Chicago State, Mount St. Mary's, and Florida A&M, whose jobs remain unfilled). 
    THE TWIST: We can only give out 12 A's and 15 B's, and each guy must give at least eight D's and five F's. Grade inflation, be gone! 
    Who LOVED the Calipari hire, and who simply gave it a C? Which select few coaches earned A's across the board from us? And, gulp, who earned the dreaded scarlet letter F?

    #349: 2024 Season Finale

    #349: 2024 Season Finale

    The season is over, and UConn won the national title easily! Is it 2023 or 2024? 2024, you say? Well, that means the Huskies went back-to-back!
    We look back on the incredible, buzzsaw-esque run of inevitability, particularly the meticulous dismantling of Purdue in the title game. Dan Hurley can coach some ball, folks. 
    We also give Zach Edey and the Boilermakers some love, hat tip to NC State and Alabama, and have a detailed discussion on the WILD week that was in the coaching carousel. 
    Thank you to everyone who tuned in this year - it's been a ton of fun interacting with folks about our beloved college hoops.

Jake the Juliet ,

Great pod no idea how they remember all these players

Super in depth, love how knowledgable they are. No clue how they remember and throw out all these names. Like there are thousands of coaches and players in D1 and do you really actually know all these people?? No way they deserve less than 5 stars for their dedication to cover this massive sport and not just hit the P5. But wierdly I find myself wanting a bit more unhinged bias takes, more making fun of programs for being bad, clowning coaches for being weird, stuff like that. Too much objective analysis!

Bias taking over

Been listening to the pod for three years. Bias against coaches and programs is coming off too strong on the recaps and it’s disappointing. Used to be a must listen show for me but will be few and far between going forward.

Zags protecting the galactic republic

Happy May the 4th. Should the Zags receive an honorary NCAA championship trophy for helping stop the droid attack on the Wookiees? For reference, Axel Dench a forward from our 1999 Elite 8 team, played as wookie chieftain Merumeru who led the defense of Kashyyyk. Thank you and keep up the great work!
