Manage episode 272885016 series 4430
Welcome back, Pac-12. On Thursday, the presidents and chancellors in the conference voted to allow hoops to return on the proper timetable so that all the teams will be playing with the rest of college basketball (save the Ivy League) when the season starts. The pod opens up with a discussion on that, then Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander split open some of the deeper issues with nonconference scheduling and why Thursday’s Pac-12 vote plays a big factor. The guys also discuss the expected reveal on Friday of initial COVID-19 guidelines (21:00) for basketball, which also will have a significant impact on what games we will or won’t get in November and December. The final third of the pod focuses on Kentucky (36:00) and its alumni just going off in the NBA bubble. Plus: Chris Mack can’t yet confirm Louisville will play, or host, Kentucky this year. Will arguably the best rivalry in college hoops go on a one-year hiatus?
