The Walk-Ons: Duke-UK Wrap, Early Season Tourney Previews

What a show. What an amazing show. On the basketball side, Ben and I do some verbal flopping as Matt comes to terms with UK’s loss to Duke. We hit on the Florida-Wisconsin and Kansas-Michigan State games, and then we preview the early season tournaments on Matt’s “Would Go/Would Watch/Will Ignore” scale. On the non-basketball side, we talk about Matt’s love life and how it relates to a pair of missing shoes, we interview coaching legend JOHN WOODEN (he’s concerned that Nerlens Noel might have lice), revisit Hootie & The Blowfish memories, check out AXS.TV’s sick lineup of Dan Rather and JAG, and have a serious discussion about whether it was cool for a newspaper writer to imply that Alex Murphy might transfer. A real sparkplug of a show. The Kathy Griffin of shows, even. Bonus John Wooden footage (soundage?) after the closing song. Time stamps below.
