Football may be over, but with college hoops, the combine and Olympics underway, it's still a busy time across sports. That’s why on Tuesday I stopped by with my old pal Justin Hull of WSCO radio in Wisconsin to discuss all the big storylines in the sport right now.
For those who are regular readers of the site, you know I was a weekly guest on Justin’s show during the season, discussing all the stories in college basketball and the college basketball odds at TopBet.Eu. But this week our discussion turned to the off-season, where a number of stories stole the headlines.
Here were some of the topics we discussed Tuesday:
A crowded college basketball landscape, which includes a number of top teams still battling to prove they are No. 1. How good is Syracuse, and when- if ever- will they suffer their first loss? Why Arizona will only get better when they get used to playing without Brandon Ashley and what about Wichita State? Are they a true NCAA Tournament team?
We also discussed the National Player of the Year race. Is Doug McDermott a lock? Who else is in the mix? And amongst a crowded group of freshmen which includes Jabari Parker, Julius Ranle and Andrew Wiggins, why it's Tyler Ennis who might be the best one of all.
And finally, Justin and I discuss moved over to football, where discuss what we would do if we were the Houston Texans with the first overall pick. Justin says that he would undoubtedly take Jadeveon Clowney and I explain why frankly I don’t think it’s a bad idea. I also share why if Houston did select a quarterback, Blake Bortles would be the one I’d take.
Folks it’s a busy time in sports!
