    The Memphis basketball team has enough talent and will likely face a good enough schedule that an NCAA Tournament berth should be well within reach in 2021.

Great show

This is my go to podcast for Tiger basketball besides radio shows like Geoff Calkins. Giannatto and Drew Hill really know their stuff and it results in a very informative podcast.

Wish episodes were longer.

Great content but wish it were longer or more often. Do a Q&A from Twitter now and then.

Great Show, Poor Sound Quality

I love the content on this podcast - it’s awesome to see listen to people who are as passionate about seeing Memphis succeed as me and my family are. However, the sound quality is terrible, and it makes it a labor to listen to those podcasts all the way through. The mics distort really bad with increased volume and intensity, and I constantly have to turn the volume up or down so I can hear when it gets too quiet and no one is speaking into the mic clearly, or it gets too loud and distorts so that I can’t understand what’s being said.
