Don't worry, we've got some Final Four chatter for you on this pod, but the episode starts with the biggest college hoops news of the past 24 hours: Kentucky and John Calipari have agreed to a lifetime deal for the coach, meaning he'll be there for essentially as long as he wants as coach -- and then will be an advisor/emeritus whenever he decides to retire. This is all in the wake of UCLA pursuing/botching its courting of Cal to Westwood. Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander open with thoughts on that, thoughts on what UCLA was doing -- or not -- and recap Cal's first decade with UK. From there, they talk Tom Izzo and Michigan State (23:00) and whether a second title is needed to validate his Hall of Fame career. The guys then run the gamut on Final Four storylines (30:00), including which is the best, and close with Norlander giving honor to the great Rick Byrd (36:00), who retired this week after winning more than 800 games.
