In this episode, I chat with my good buddy Reid Forgrave about his story in GQ on Zac Easter and about concussions in football, which I firmly believe will be one of the best stories written in sports journalism this year.
Then, we chatted about his main love, college basketball. What's up in the Big East? How cool is the Hamidou Diallo situation? Some quick mention of Harry Giles and some other draft prospects later, then also chat about how Reid is going ice fishing in the middle of a Minnesota lake this weekend.
In this episode, we have three parts. First, I chat with Stephen Schramm of the Fayetteville Observer in North Carolina, who covers Duke and the ACC on a day-to-day basis. What is it like covering the Grayson Allen situation? Are there any parallels? What is this Duke team like?
Second, I chat with Eric Bossi about a different issue with Duke, specifically about what is going on with Harry Giles. Should he be playing? What were his options coming out of high school? What did you like about him coming out of high school? Then we also break down some of the stud players in the freshman class that aren't necessarily getting the publicity they deserve.
Finally, I get my girlfriend Laura to help me out with a mailbag. Readers ask questions about Gonzaga's Zach Collins, UCLA's Lonzo Ball, Florida, Bam Adebayo, and NCAA Tournament sleepers.

In this episode, it's a reunion of the old Eye on College Basketball Podcast as I chat with good friend of the program Matt Norlander about what we've seen in college basketball to this point. Need to catch up on the college hoops season after college football has just ended? This will act as a nice catch-all for you, including a quick little recap of what we think has been important so far, whether or not we think this is the most talented college basketball has been in the last decade, if the rule changes have helped, and finally hand out some awards to the superlative players that we've seen so far.
