The curse of the top ranking in college basketball continues, trickling down to number two. First time that’s happened in a while (ask Duke and Florida, when they were no. one and two.) Louisville is in a daily fight to qualify for the NCAA tournament, gets a lucky bounce for Edgar Sosa, but no love from fellow Big East brethren. Texas and Georgetown continue their free fall (don’t be fooled by the Oklahoma game . . . ) Purdue gets one really rotten break, and Frank Martin’s Kansas State Wildcats may have received one lucky break, as a result. And Syracuse? Just ask Matt; dude’s contended all year long how good they are. But Notre Dame? Are you kidding?? Check out the latest Nothing But Net, for all the answers. After all, it’s the thinking person’s college basketball podcast. The one with the fresh beats.
Nothing But Net is now coming to you twice a week, and what better way to kick it off than with the gentleman known as Seedy K, the Culture Maven, or simply c d kaplan. That’s right, the father of rumor and innuendo joins Nothing But Net to share his Freedom Hall memories, and to talk about the game we love—college basketball. With only one U of L game remaining at this legendary arena, c d will share his memories about the home to the Cards for over 50 years, and offer insights into this year’s Cards basketball team. We’re sure he’ll have lots more to share with you. Mr. kaplan is our favorite sports blogger, and he’s sure to be yours, after you join Matt and Mark, and our very special guest c d kaplan, for volume two of this week’s Nothing But Net, the thinking person’s basketball webcast—the one with the beats!
That’s Day of Reckoning, for non-Spanish speakers. And it’s drawing nigh quickly. We could say for many teams, the remaining games are for all the marbles, but it’s only 65 that count. UConn and U of L from the Big East are playing for their NCAA tourney lives. UK is fighting for a number one seed in the NCAA tourney, but experience and maturity may be significant obstacles. Kansas has all those elements going for them, and now appear to be a lock for the overall number one seed. But it’s college basketball, and anything can happen. Ask players at the University of Texas, or Georgetown University; brilliant reputations or fast starts can disappear overnight. And how real are teams like New Mexico or Gonzaga—is the current perception of basketball out West merited? Join Matt and Mark and get prepared for the annual wild finish to the NCAA basketball regular season. And the glory of the conference and NCAA tournaments. Join us for this week’s Nothing But Net—the thinking person’s basketball podcast, with the beats!
