I hope you're settling into our little schedule here, as we're loving giving you three podcasts per week. For a Friday, we're introducing you to someone you probably know very well.

His writing, at least.

The podcast is going to have Parrish on regularly, so for his first appearance, why not do something different: his path to success. How did Gary ascend to's premier college basketball scribe? He tells his story, from high school journalism on up. He lucked into his gig at the Memphis Commercial-Appeal, which then led to his being hired here in 2006. Plus, we discuss what to expect from Ohio State-Wisconsin, and the erosion of UConn after last night's blowout loss to St. John's.

Kemba's player-of-the-year ballot's suddenly being swooped into the ether.

Enjoy, and please feel free to send your questions and comments. Love correspondence and feedback:

You're also highly encouraged to subscribe to the podcast in iTunes.
