#357: Season Recap Series: SEC

Take a tailgate break, college baseball maniacs! Our season recap series wraps up with the conference where it simply means more. Before Oklahoma and Texas join the fold, we took a look back on the year that was in the SEC. Though football still reigns supreme, the hoops programs have come a long way - this league has great coaches galore and NIL money to burn. What is the state of each squad going forward?  We also look back on our preseason preview podcast, taking stock of both our great and terrible takes. South Carolina = way way better than expected, and Mizzou and Arkansas = way way worse! The Rundown: (0:10) - Intro (5:09) - Root's Roundup (News & Notes - Dan Hurley is staying!)

#350: Coaching Hire Report Cards

On the true debut of our offseason pod schedule, the fellas give all 60 hires a grade from A through F (apologies to Chicago State, Mount St. Mary's, and Florida A&M, whose jobs remain unfilled).  THE TWIST: We can only give out 12 A's and 15 B's, and each guy must give at least eight D's and five F's. Grade inflation, be gone!  Who LOVED the Calipari hire, and who simply gave it a C? Which select few coaches earned A's across the board from us? And, gulp, who earned the dreaded scarlet letter F? The Rundown:(0:10) - Intro (2:46) - Quick Root's Roundup (10:33) - Coaching Hire Grades (NOTE: Done grades in alphabetical order by school name - a couple reference points provided below to help you skip around if you'd like) (11:58) - Arkansas (22:54) - DePaul (29:34) - FAU (38:41) - Kentucky (44:32) - Michigan (53:54) - Saint Louis (57:20) - Stanford (1:05:59) - Washington (1:12:29) - Review(s)! ...

We look back on the incredible, buzzsaw-esque run of inevitability, particularly the meticulous dismantling of Purdue in the title game. Dan Hurley can coach some ball, folks.  We also give Zach Edey and the Boilermakers some love, hat tip to NC State and Alabama, and have a detailed discussion on the WILD week that was in the coaching carousel.  Thank you to everyone who tuned in this year - it's been a ton of fun interacting with folks about our beloved college hoops.  The Rundown (0:10) - Intro (6:32) - Root's Roundup (heavy coaching carousel talk, plus a little NIT chatter) (35:24) - Final Four Roundup (55:07) - Extremely Quick 2025 Lookahead + one Review ...
