Surprise podcast! Clark Kellogg hops on

By Matt Norlander

Diverting from the thrice-weekly schedule to get in a quickie podcast with CBS Sports' Clark Kellogg today. Clark's one of the nicest guys in the business, truly; it was an honor to get him on, even if his appearance had to be brief.

Clark's doing a lot of radio touring today to promote the Capital One Cup. You can learn about it by listening to me stumble over copy near the start of the podcast. Or you can go here to learn more. It was a quick but fun podcast. Hope I can get him on again soon for the LP version instead of the EP.

Clark talks:
  • From the beginning: Capital One Cup, the mandatory plug. It's just how some of the business works, people.
  • 2:13: Have to talk Carrier Classic one more time on the podcast, what it means for the sport, how cool it is, etc.
  • 3:57: The biggest things on his mind right now. Man's got measured opinions. I respect that, even if I can't identify with it.
  • 6:30 Clark won't be on TV this year until the Dec. 3 game, the biggie, UNC at UConn. So what will he do until then? He takes us into his life in Columbus, Ohio, and how he scouts teams.
  • 8:39: Clark's under-the-radar teams. He actually throws out a shocker here. One I haven't heard anyone bring up yet.
  • 11:31: And the players who aren't getting a lot of pub right now -- call 'em breakouts, sure -- Clark's got a few to talk about.
Reminder that the podcasts run Mondays, Wednesdays and Friday. Goodman and Parrish, they show up on the Wednesday show with me, and magic is made. Monday and Friday is where the podcast attempts to establish its credibility though, as I'll be bringing on an array of writers and personalities from around the sport. If you'd like to listen away from the site, you can subscribe on iTunes. Or use the RSS feed. And we've even got the Zune-minded hooked up, too.

Podcast: Measuring the Baylor scandal against PSU

By Matt Norlander

The title of this post doesn't do the podcast justice -- because Goodman, Parrish and I have a pretty lively 30-minute discussion, and only about seven minutes of it are dedicated to talking Penn State and how it differs from what happened at Baylor nearly a decade ago.

We have a good time. Lots of jokes, debate, insight and the kind of tenor I hope you come to expect and enjoy with this podcast.

The three of us get into talking recruiting, because today is very significant in terms of getting a clearer picture of what teams can be in the next one to five years. You need to go here to stay up on all that's happening. Vital info. Convince your friends you know more about 17-year-old basketball players than they do!

Today's topics:
  • From the beginning: We start with National Signing Day. It exists -- but should it? How's it different from what it was 10 years ago? Will it be different five years from now? Also, valuable insight from Parrish on Purdue's latest commits.
  • 8:41: Penn State's scandal: Biggest sports story since the O.J. trial? Parrish and Goodman say no. I still can't get over Gregg Doyel and his live-tweeting from JoePa's backyard.
  • 15:56: Parrish is going to the Carrier Classic. It may rain. How was he allowed on this ship, anyway? Apparently it was a three-week process conducted by the Navy.
  • 21:34: Goodman's going to be hosting a radio show with Bruce Pearl. I was never told. So I call him out on it. And Parrish battles Goodman over radio cred. As long as I've got the none-ballyhooed podcast cred, we're cool here. 
Hey, you showing up now that the season is underway? What, we're not good enough for you from May through October? Hey, just glad to have you around. This podcast thing, we're doing it tri-weekly, Mondays, Wednesdays and Friday. Goodman and Parrish, they show up on the Wednesday show with me, and magic is made. Monday and Friday is where the podcast attempts to establish its credibility though, as I'll be bringing on an array of writers and personalities from around the sport.

Podcast: LET THE SEASON BEGIN

By Matt Norlander

The season is here, oh my God, oh my God. And with that, you need to listen to today's podcast to prep you for tonight. It's only right. And I can't urge you enough to listen, because from the first second, you're going to be jolted into college hoops mode. That isn't empty promises or hyperbole. Just click the player and you'll know what I mean.

Mike Miller of NBCSports.com and Beyond the Arc is one of the nicest guys in the business. He deserves more run, and I was happy to have him back on the podcast. We chatted last night while stealing peeks at that awesome Ravens-Steelers game.

We talk:
  • From the beginning: If this doesn't give you a Pavlovian response and giddyness to the start of the college basketball season, I don't want you inside my podcast.
  • 2:00: Mike lives out in the lovely city of Seattle, which is where Pearl Jam originated. And the band recently celebrated its 20-year anniversary. So we pretty much had to spend some time talking Vedder and Co.
  • 9:45: Which mid-major conferences and teams haven't gotten enough run this preseason? Mike's got some love for Belmont, the WCC and others.
  • 14:20: Goodman had his piece on the 2011-12 breakout players. But he missed a few good ones. Mike names three guys who certainly qualify and are promising in that regard. Love his second choice.
  • 20:50: I didn't want to let the weekend pass and the season start without addressing this again. Deserves some conversation, even when we're excited to get the games going.
  • 25:33: Chuck Klosterman wrote about his 50 favorite players and titled it the 50 Greatest College Basketball Players of All Time. We poke and prod, but don't really dispute, much of what he had. Fun discussion and a trip down memory lane.
  • 33:48: Wrap-up talk about bloggy stuff, the season ahead, etc.
Hey, you showing up now that the season is underway? What, we're not good enough for you from May through October? Hey, just glad to have you around. This podcast thing, we're doing it tri-weekly, Mondays, Wednesdays and Friday. Jeff Goodman and Gary Parrish, they show up on the Wednesday show with me, and magic is made.

Podcast: The Glock unloads

By Matt Norlander

Rounding out the week by bringing on the man who once dominated the college hoops podcast forum. SI.com's Andy Glockner checks in. Glock used to run ESPN.com's college hoops podcast back in the day. I was a dedicated, subscribed listener. Was an honor to have him on, and the 35-minute record absolutely flew by.

If you've been waiting for some wonkier hoops talk, wait no more. But if your'e afraid of tempo-free conversation, fear not! We abundantly chat outside those lines, too.

The menu consists of:
  • From the beginning: Miscellaneous banter about Glockner being locked up in Long Island at the moment, plus I butter him up by reminding him, yes, he's my inspiration.
  • 3:33: Glockner recently wrote this, so we get into that.
  • 10:35: In what amounted to a worthwhile celebration in both of our homes, KenPom.com released its preseason rankings Thursday. So Andy and I go over what surprises us. There are a few teams that pop out as misplaced.
  • 18:47: With the NBA lockout perhaps diving further into the abyss, what's college basketball can and will -- and can't and won't -- do to benefit.
  • 23:15: Andy gives a couple teams he's higher and lower on than the general consensus. He makes a pretty great correlation between UConn last year and a team this season that fits the mold. Some real hate here!
  • 31:03: The fan bases that hate him the most. After this podcast, I'm sure we can add another one or two onto the pile.
If you're just stumbling onto the site, this is your reminder that podcasts are now tri-weekly, with Monday, Wednesday and Friday releases. CBSSports.com national writers Gary Parrish and Jeff Goodman are making it a habit of appearing in concert each Wednesday. We're building a rapport and destroying each other in the process. It's a great time. If you'd like to listen away from the site, you can subscribe on iTunes. Or use the RSS feed. And we've even got the Zune-minded hooked up, too.

Podcast: Parrish almost killed a guy

By Matt Norlander

It's really starting to feel like basketball season, right?

Goodman and Parrish hop back on with me today, and we hit more topics in this podcast than I think any we've done before. Recording it, the time just flew by. I'm also going on four hours of sleep, so it's a minor miracle I made it through the podcast without dozing off or completely talking nonsense. (Well, the second part is up for debate.)

On the docket:
  • From the beginning: Ryan Boatright is currently ineligible for UConn. How long will that last?
  • 3:00: Gasp! Stacey Poole may be leaving Kentucky!
  • 5:13: Arizona's run of incredible recruiting; it recently tabbed and nabbed Kaleb Tarczewski. I call him "Taleb Karczewski." Just incredible podcasting here.
  • 7:34: Tarczewski was believed to be Kansas-bound. We go back into Kansas and Bill Self and what the hell is happening there. Who thought Self would ever get into this position? He's losing constantly on the recruiting trail.
  • 11:13: Why exhibition games don't mean jack. Hey, you, stop overreacting.
  • 14:02: Our conference previews are done (read all about them here). But we go back into talking the top six leagues, why we're ranking which leagues where, and how the SEC is particularly intriguing.
  • 18:08: Will Jared Sullinger have a better year this year than any year Tyler Hansbrough did? I ask the question. One says yes, one says no.
  • 24:53: For no good reason whatsoever, we move on to talk Aaron Craft. Fun player. Looking forward to how he elevates his profile, nationally.
  • 27:29: The fun stuff! Parrish tells us about the time he hit a guy with his car and Goodman's afraid of rollercoasters.

Podcast: Happy Halloween, hoops fans

By Matt Norlander

The preseason podcast blogger tour continues with my former main man at Yahoo Sports, Jeff Eisenberg. Jeff does a helluva of a job running The Dagger, and I really recommend you make that part of your daily carousel throughout the season going forward, if that wasn't the case already.

I tricked you with the teasing title about Halloween; we don't really discuss that at all, unfortunately.

What we do treat your ears with:
  • From the beginning: Bill Self's suspension of Tyshawn Taylor and Elijah Johnson. How big is this? We argue not that big.
  • 5:03: Talking Pac-12. Jeff was at the league's media day last week, and the big story was Mike Montgomery revealing he had bladder cancer taken care of the past few months. How many teams are tournament-worthy?
  • 10:37: UCLA has to deal with Pauley Pavilion getting renovated. Why could this be a bad, bad thing for the Bruins?
  • 15:35: Who's the best basketball team out West this season? There isn't a definitive answer right now.
  • 18:44: Some WCC talk. How great and fun is that league going to be?
  • 21:06: Jeff gets to go to the Carrier Classic. He had to go through a background check.
  • 25:15: With Connecticut -- where I live -- enduring its worst widespread power outage in state history, Jeff and I swap some of our worst weather stories.

Podcast: Podcastin' is a Habit

By Matt Norlander

We're wrapping up the week by continuing our blogger tour, and the guys from Ballin' is a Habit join me in stride. There's a pretty cool, fairly big announcement Rob Dauster and Troy Machir let loose within the podcast. Of course it's an honor that they saved the big reveal for our lil' ol' 'cast that could.

The three of us discuss:
  • From the beginning: Talking about the dirty work behind the incredible All-Name teams. We run through our favorites, and I also call out Troy for being a pilfer of great content ideas.
  • 6:45: The big BIAH announcment. No spoiling it here.
  • 13:00: The evolution of BIAH and what it's become today, which is among the best basketball blogs out there.
  • 16:09: Billy Kennedy's Parkinson's diagnosis.
  • 18:48: The NCAA allowing $2,000 cost-of-attendance scholarship bumps. A big thing for the NCAA?
  • 24:07: Talking texting. Coaches no longer have a filter for getting in touch with recruits. Isn't his bigger than than COA allowance?
  • 27:35: The Michael Beasley story.
  • 32:53: Our best Halloween costumes during our college days.
We're going full speed, with three podcasts per week now. You can find them on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, with the Wednesday show being the worst of the bunch: Goodman and Parrish join me each hump day. Get in the habit of listening. You can subscribe on iTunes. Or the RSS feed. Or, if you're one of those with a Zune, yeah we've got you covered, too.

Podcast: Breakout players and teams for this year

By Matt Norlander

The podcast is so much more than the title above, though. Goodman and Parrish are back with me, and this is the best one we've done yet. The stories at the start were great; I'm definitely following up next week.

Here's your aural checklist:
  • From the beginning: We share some of our worst driving experiences. Parrish has an unbelievable story that's so Parrish and so hilarious. And apparently Goodman was once a Domino's delivery boy. Who knew?
  • 5:50: Into the hoop talk. Indiana and the expectation level there. Then the Brad Stevens talk begins, and we begin to senselessly speculate where and when Stevens would leave Butler.
  • 12:30: Our breakout/under-publicized players. Shockingly, Parrish goes with a player from Memphis. I use the opportunity to get Nate Wolters' name into the fray once more.
  • 20:04: Bill Self, Kansas, Kansas recruiting and who will lead the Jayhawks this year.
  • 24:43: The teams we are particularly high on; the teams we think will have big years, possibly Final Four years.
  • 29:25: Halloween weekend discussion.
As a reminder, from now through the end of the season, we'll be delivering three podcasts per week to you. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays is when you can find the new episodes. Get in the habit of listening. You can subscribe on iTunes. Or the RSS feed. Or, if you're one of those with a Zune, yeah we've got you covered, too.
