Our Editor's Take

Fans of Duke, Gonzaga, Kansas, or any other NCAA team can all agree on one thing: this podcast wins. The Eye on College Basketball podcast offers updates on college basketball. But it also brings listeners a lot of laughs. With at least three episodes available weekly, listeners won't miss any NCAA news.

Cohosts Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander are knowledgeable and hilarious. They have a combined 30 years of experience at CBS Sports. And they both bring unique expertise and personality to the podcast. Every episode includes sports commentary mixed with humor. The podcast's goal is to keep listeners updated on year-round basketball news. From draft picks to March Madness, Parrish and Norlander keep their jokes and commentary fresh.

The podcast's Summer Shootaround Series explores the upcoming talent of each team. The hosts discuss players, coaches, and draft picks every season. Parrish and Norlander talk about March Madness as Selection Sunday approaches. Fans will hear the commentary as the Final Four compete for the championship.

The regular Mailbag episodes are fan favorites. Most of the listener questions relate to basketball. Other times, they're funny messages directed at the hosts. CBS Sports' Eye on College Basketball podcast is a great option for listeners who love basketball and a good laugh.
