Norlander's back in the saddle, it's the beginning of February, and we must talk Kansas' win over Kansas State and the super-compelling Big 12 race.

Huge show: Louisville dodges the hammer, Kansas suspends Bill Self, Gonzaga-Big 12 rumors (College basketball 11/03)
4680
The college basketball news machine is working fast and furious ahead of Monday's season-openers. First, Louisville's IARP case is in — and there's nothing much to the punishment. Should that give schools like Kansas, Arizona and LSU hope in their IARP cases? Matt Norlander and Gary Parrish discuss. Additionally, Kansas announced a four-game suspension to start the season for Bill Self (and other punishments). Where does this put KU going into 2023? And another big headline: Gonzaga's AD recently met with the Big 12 commissioner. But Norlander explains why that doesn't mean a merger is imminent. The guys lay out Gonzaga's case for being in the Big 12, Pac-12, Big East ... and maybe just staying put in the WCC. »Eye on College Basketball is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Google Podcasts, Castbox and wherever else you listen to podcasts.  »Follow our team: @EyeonCBBPodcast @GaryParrishCBS @MattNorlander @Kyle_Boone @DavidWCobb @NataTheScribe »You can listen to us on your smart speakers!

League preview, picks, predictions: The SEC (College Basketball 10/29)

Our final big conference preview homes in on a league that could send as many as eight to the tourney. Parrish and Norlander save their longest league preview for last, as the SEC has eight compelling teams with realistic chances of making the 2022 NCAA Tournament. The league breaks down into three tiers: some combination of Alabama, Kentucky, Arkansas and Tennessee. Then a quartet of Alabama, Mississippi State, Florida and LSU. And then the other six teams, of which at least one could reasonably be the surprising breakthrough and finish in the top half of the conference. Let's dive in.

College hoops is going to be loaded next season. A lot of big names and really good players decided in the past week to take their names out of the NBA draft pool and head back to school.

We hope you had a safe-but-lively Fourth of July weekend. Fear not, another draft-profile episode awaits you. This week's appetizer-portioned podcast on a prospect focuses on Davion Mitchell, last seen leading Baylor's men's team to its first national championship. He was the best defender in the sport last season. He could be an immediate role player of impact on a good team. But is his value overstated at this point? Stats and cases for, and against, therein.

NIL era officially arrives; Penny stays at Memphis; five big roster decisions this week (College Basketball 07/01)
3755
July 1, 2021, truly signals a watershed day for college athletes. Now every NCAA athlete can profit off their name, image and likeness, as the NCAA officially pushed through a temporary rule that enables all schools to determine (unless their state laws mandate otherwise) how student-athletes can legally make money while still in college. It's a huge day, and we've got a long conversation on that. The interesting, the funny, the fallout and more. That's the first 36 minutes of this podcast. Then Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander get to Penny Hardaway (38:00) staying at Memphis, despite recently interviewing for the Orlando Magic job, and hiring 80-year-old Larry Brown to his staff in the process. The guys close with some news and notes from this week on important players (51:00) staying or going with top 25-level programs.

1499
Norlander loves Scottie Barnes, placing him at No. 3 on his big board. Parrish slots him No. 6 to Oklahoma City in his latest mock draft. It seems the most likely landing spot for Barnes will fall between No. 5 and No. 8. But what's there to love? Well, almost everything about his game — except the one thing that matters most.

He didn't play college basketball, and he's not a top-tier prospect in this year's draft. But is Jonathan Kuminga for sure the best option at No. 5? What will the Magic do with that pick? Norlander doesn't regard Kuminga as a top-10 pick in this year's field, while Parrish slots him No. 5 in his latest mock draft, which you can scroll through here as you listen to the pod. https://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/nba-mock-draft-2021-cade-cunningham-goes-to-the-lottery-winning-pistons-at-no-1-jalen-suggs-to-rockets/ To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander offer their insights and opinions on what Monday's huge news means. The Supreme Court returned its opinion on the NCAA v. Alston case, ruling 9-0 in favor of Alston, which equates to a win for college athletes everywhere. While the case did not tie to paying players, the Court did send a message to the NCAA that its current definition of amateurism falls outside of antitrust laws.

Predicting which new coach will be best next season, and the most likely first-time nationa (College Basketball 06/11)
2778
We’ve got a fun, thought-provoking offseason ep for you here. Gary Parrish hopped on the horn with Chris Beard earlier this week -- you can read that story here -- and so GP and Norlander discuss a few things tied to the column. No. 1: Of the 60 hirings made in men’s college basketball this year, is Beard most likely to be the best hire? No. 2: Is it Beard or someone else most likely to have the best first season in 2021-22? No. 3: Predicting the five-or-so coaches most likely to win a national championship that have yet to do so. Norlander has a few fun dark horses, while Parrish breaks ‘em down into different categories.

If that happens, it's going to be for the reasons detailed on this 25-minute podcast that evaluates Suggs' story, stats at Gonzaga and NBA projection. Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander lay out the case for Suggs to be as immediately impactful as Ja Morant and potentially as valuable as Donovan Mitchell.

We continue our weekly, up-to-the-draft specialized episodes on the top prospects by focusing on 4/5 hybrid big Evan Mobley, who was the Pac-12's Player, Freshman and Defensive Player of the Year last season. Mobley has been touted as a potential No. 1 pick for more than three years now. Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander evaluate his case, with some thoughts from USC coach Andy Enfield included. As for the best comp, there's a name aside from Anthony Davis (and Kevin Durant, silly as that is) to consider.

Overtime Elite swoops in and pays a couple of prospects more than $1 million; the absurd/sad extortion story at Louisville (College Basketball 05/21)
2992
Friday's news: a couple of highly rated, five-star prospects in the class of 2023 will commit to playing for Overtime Elite, a fledgling league backed financially by the likes of Kevin Durant, Drake and Jeff Bezos. GP and Norlander open with thoughts on that and explain the difference between the viability of a league like this and why it barely affects college basketball. The second half of the podcast (27:30) focuses on the wild story from earlier in the week: former Louisville assistant Dino Gaudio was charged with extortion after he made threats to his boss, Chris Mack, after Mack did not renew Gaudio's contract.

2366
Kentucky received two significant backcourt commitments in recent days: five-star point guard TyTy Washington and Georgia transfer Sahvir Wheeler, who led the SEC in assists last season. Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander open on Kentucky’s newest ranking and why this team looks different from any other ever under John Calipari. And while UK should be good, Gonzaga (12:00) will be great. The Bulldogs received a commitment from a point guard that only reinforces why the Zags will open the season ranked first. To wrap, the guys talk Jay Wright (22:00) making the class for the 2021 Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame, and Norlander peppers Parrish with 12 active coaching candidates’ cases to eventually get in.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

That's funny: Mark Emmert now asking NCAA to put name, imagine and likeness rules on the books ASAP (College Basketball 05/11)
2031
Mark Emmert told The New York Times over the weekend that he wants the NCAA to have name, image and likeness rules on the books by July 1. Why July 1? That's when five states will have their own rules go live. It's a sticky situation, and change of tune, for the president of the NCAA. This is a story with a few layers, and we continue to follow and keep you up to speed on it because it's a huge story -- the biggest -- in college athletics this spring and summer. Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander also touch on Hartford (20:30), fresh off its first NCAA Tournament in school history, heading to D-III ... unless something can be changed in the next couple of months.

With almost no justification for doing so, the NCAA stupidly but unsurprisingly extends Mark Emmert's contract (College Basketball 04/28)

The NCAA quietly announced late Tuesday night that president Mark Emmert had his contracted extended through 2025. It's baffling, and it's why we open this week's pod on the topic. Then Norlander and Parrish get to Loyola Chicago (22:00) hiring the youngest coach in D-I basketball -- while somehow keeping the roster almost entirely in tact. Pretty impressive. The pod closes with some thoughts on Texas (35:45) and then a Trivia Time! for you, the listener! Here is the Trivia Time!

Baylor's 86-70 win Monday night over Gonzaga was fairly shocking. Nobody had the Bears winning by more than 15 points. Nobody. Matt Norlander and Gary Parrish open with their thoughts on what BU did to demolish Gonzaga.

Plus, Michigan beat Iowa in a top-10 affair, and at this point three of the four No. 1 seeds are locked up.

Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander obviously open with that and share their thoughts on both teams and whether Michigan is right there with Gonzaga and Baylor. Then: uh-oh. Duke’s not dead yet. The Blue Devils (20:50) got their best win of the season by hanging on vs. Virginia. Let’s objectively evaluate the resume and determine their chances of dancing.

Wichita State’s home win Thursday night over top-10 Houston was good enough to finally catapult the Shockers into the NCAA Tournament conversation. Parrish and Norlander disagree at this point about if they should be in, though. Another Q: Should Isaac Brown be promoted from interim to full-time head coach, or is an NCAA Tournament appearance necessary to make that jump? After that, the guys touch on Friday’s notable news: The NCAA allowing for 25% capacity in all NCAA Tournament venues this season (14:45). From there, the curious cases of Belmont and Winthrop (22:15) and why the selection committee should give them more slack this season. You can read Norlander’s story on this below as well. The pod wraps, as it does every Friday, with the Final Four + 1 (31:15). Norlander shouts out a number of listeners who came through with that Arkansas Sweet 16 stat, so stick around! https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/court-report-selection-committee-chair-mitch-barnhart-explains-new-ncaa-tournament-bracketing-process/ To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Illinois’ Ayo Dosunmu is college basketball’s premier closer at this point, or so one high-major coach who texted Norlander said. The pod opens on the Illini before getting to the most controversial story of the week, Jalen Johnson leaving Duke (11:30). GP and Norlander make some time to talk about Florida State and Arkansas (24:00) working their way into the top two spots in their respective conference races and then ask the important question: Who would you rather have an edible with, Leonard Hamilton or Eric Musselman? The pod closes on Boston College (40:00) deciding to fire Jim Christian in the middle of February. What’s the point? And is it a better job than, say, Penn State, which also will have to fill an opening in the next 6-8 weeks?

OK, maybe a couple. And then GP’s thoughts on why Duke could be the No. 1 team next preseason (29:00) with a good Trivia Time! tossed in.

Then the guys touch on one of the bigger stories of the offseason (13:00) that went absolutely nowhere this season. What is it? Listen to find out. And about Duke and Kentucky (27:00), which lost again on Tuesday night — do we think these teams will be able to regain their top-10 form next season? For one, yes. For the other, not so much.

Kansas unworthy of being ranked for first time in 10-plus years; Texas, UNC, Duke, Iowa and more weekend reactions (College Basketball 02/07)
4140
Our Sunday evening podcast was recorded in the early afternoon, before the Super Bowl. The guys open with Kansas’ fifth loss in seven games. Hard to justify ranking KU at this point. They then turn to Texas and Alabama (14:00) losing as road favorites and get into those games. The always-lively weekend whiparound (29:00) touches on essentially every outcome of note — UNC over Duke, USC over UCLA, Illinois over Wisconsin, the quagmire in the A-10, but with an emphasis on Iowa losing for the fourth time in five games and being swept by Indiana. As always, the end of the Sunday ep gets into some listener reviews (52:00), including a story about someone running into GP for a change!  Here’s Norlander’s column from Saturday night, easy to read as you listen to the show. https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/uncs-win-at-duke-delivers-excitement-even-without-rankings-or-fans-in-the-sports-best-rivalry/ To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

4025
Ohio State got its seventh Quad 1 win by virtue of beating Iowa on Thursday night, so the guys open with that and spent about 15 minutes on the Buckeyes and Hawkeyes, including some chatter on how more experienced teams are atop the rankings almost universally this season. Then it’s the upset-laden Wednesday (15:45), which was statistically the nuttiest day of the season so far. And if it’s a Friday, it’s Final Four + 1 time (40:30), in addition to Norlander’s usual viewing guide on the other matchups to watch. If you want more “Let’s go!” Coach K drops, this episode will not disappoint.

3112
Show open: No. 2 Baylor’s 83-69 win at No. 6 Texas, which prompts a discussion about Parrish deciding to keep Gonzaga at No. 1 in his rankings.

After that, the guys get to Duke and North Carolina (23:30) both losing in recent days, setting up a highly urgent and historic Heels-Devils game this weekend. We've got a dash of Drake/Loyola Chicago love (35:00) and a then quick tour of other noteworthy Tuesday results, plus a good Final Four hypothetical GP asks Norlander.

Biggest wins and losses this weekend, plus a dip into the listener mailbag, and we remember Temple legend John Chaney (College Basketball 01/31)
4659
The death of John Chaney on Friday is still lingering as the biggest story in college hoops as we exit the weekend. The guys have a long discussion on Chaney in the back end of the podcast you won’t want to miss. But before that, an extensive tour around the weekend’s results. The pod opens with thoughts on five games featuring ranked teams falling to unranked or less-ranked opponents. Oklahoma and Florida are the biggest winners. Then GP and Norlander get to other notable outcomes (18:45) and touch on more than 10 games from Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The Chaney talk starts around the 33-minute mark, and then the listener mailbag -- with a ranking of some of the best bits and moments on the pod in the past 12 months -- concludes the final 20 minutes of the pod.

4366
We didn’t have a blockbuster weekend, but there are a few scores and plot lines to dive into. The pod opens with Kansas and Duke’s three-game losing streaks. How many times, ever, have these two blue bloods had three-game losing streaks at the same time? Then the guys get into Coach K’s viral moment with a student reporter (16:10) and discuss why some of the reaction was overblown. The weekend whiparound starts around the 32-minute mark, and then the mailbag (42:00) is bookended with Norlander having a little rapid-fire Q&A with GP for his 48th birthday.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

4210
Let’s have some fun. Today’s episode opens with Indiana’s highly significant upset at Iowa from Thursday night, and so there will be crow to eat. At the 14:30 mark, the guys then get to Norlander’s piece (link below) from Thursday that details the potentially messy situation awaiting college basketball in March: should conference tournaments be played?

We know our Friday preview ep was shorter than usual, so we made up for it with our Sunday recap one. The guys open on Virginia, which had the most impressive win of the weekend. Then they get to Illinois (11:45) and try to answer why it’s falling short of expectations. The weekend whiparound (25:15) includes thoughts on Creighton, Pac-12, Gonzaga, Baylor, UNC, Louisville and more, and then the guys — probably for the last time this season — dedicate a little time to what John Calipari (40:40) said on Saturday. And a special elongated mailbag segment (50:20) this week, which includes interesting questions, fake stories and some D-I college hoops connections.

Illinois' Hulk-like second-half destruction of Northwestern; 13-0 Drake; weekend picks and preview (College Basketball 01/08)
3598
What Illinois pulled off Thursday night against Northwestern was among the most unlikely second-half performances in college hoops history. We start there, then get to the other Big Ten scores from Thursday (11:00), in addition to general talk on the league and how a few teams are facing urgent games this weekend. This week, Norlander wrote up a story on 13-0 Drake (you can read it here), and that discussion starts about at the 19-minute mark. There’s a completely ridiculous tangent about an extinct animal embedded in the segment, but eventually the guys make their way to the Final Four + 1 (35:00), picking five games along with Norlander’s tour around the weekend of the other matchups to keep an eye on.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

3591
Happy New Year’s Eve eve! We open this ep by talking Michigan State and whether it misses making the NCAA Tournament in 2021.

And given this is the final episode of 2020, we have to wrap by looking back on the year. Norlander has the five biggest college hoops stories of the past 12 months, and there’s even a call to our listeners: send and share your favorite podcast moments from 2020, too.

Then it’s Gonzaga (19:30) and the likelihood it runs the regular-season table, but also why this would be a very good thing for college basketball (the convincing case made therein). The duo unexpected gets into a discussion about Seinfeld and VCRs, but Norlander steers it back on track by looking ahead to the games to know for Monday and Tuesday (42:15) before the pod wraps with some entertaining shoutouts to the listeners who left notable reviews (57:00) — so be sure to leave yours if you want some love on a future pod.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.
