A fun episode awaits you, as Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander open this one by tossing out theories as to why exactly Duke and Kentucky almost every year for nearly a decade have been the top two recruiting destinations. Beyond the coaches, what are the reasons? From there, Norlander tosses out this question (15:00): Who can do in college hoops what Clemson's done as of late in college football? That is: go from proud-but-underachieving program to competing with UK and Duke in recruiting. After that, the guys get into why more top 100-ish prospects who would academically qualify don't seriously consider playing for an Ivy League program (26:00), touch on Tony Bennett refusing a raise (44:00) and giving back $500,000 to the university. They wrap with the unexpected news of Rick Pitino actually agreeing to $0 in his settlement (53:00) with Louisville.
