Today’s episode is a full 83 minutes of Championship Fortnight analysis.

  • Tim Brando of Fox Sports is up first, fresh off calling the Maryland Terrapins’ win over the Michigan Wolverines Sunday for a share of the Big Ten title, is on to talk Terps and the power of the conference. Tim is also working the Big East conference tourney in NYC and has thoughts on their regular season’s finish and how dramatic that tourney might be this weekend.
  • Next, Matt Zemek of (Wisconsin) Badgerwire.com and (USC) Trojanwire.com is back to discuss how both of those schools basically locked up tourney spots over the weekend. Plus, now that the seeds are set, Matt discusses the Pac-12 tournament draw.
  • In the third slot, I discuss Monday’s SB Nation bracket. Did the San Diego State Aztecs and Baylor Bears cost themselves No. 1 seeds with losses on Saturday? What power-conference tourney am I most looking forward to? And, of course, we play “In or Out?!?” on several schools at-large chances like the Indiana Hoosiers, Texas Longhorns, and UCLA Bruins.
  • Finally, analyst Mark Wise is back and ready to call the Monday night SoCon title game between the Wofford Terriers and East Tennessee State Buccaneers. Then, He and T.J. will work the Horizon League Title game Tuesday night on TuneIn. Mark completes his week at the SEC Tournament in Nashville. He’s got thoughts on all of those conferences and what the “bubble implications” are for the participants.
