With a pair of first year head coaches at 2 of the league’s marquee programs (UConn and Memphis) and 2 of its most consistent programs (Wichita State, Cincinnati) losing tons of talent from last season, this league should be wide open and a lot of fun to watch.

Today on the show, Brad and Kevin wrap up their deep dive preview series with their previews of Marquette (24:50-52:45) and Wisconsin (52:45-1:32:20). A pair of in-state rivals coming off underwhelming seasons, optimism is high with both clubs’ fanbases. But both have significant work to do, with Marquette needing to flash an improved defense and Wisconsin trying to provide enough backcourt support to feed their star in Ethan Happ. We break down both clubs, but also go in-depth on the futures of both coaches at their respective programs.

Significant coverage of the week in recruiting also included in the first 25 minutes, with analysis of the 6 top-100 recruits that committed since we last recorded, plus a few other scattered commitments and the trouble that Michael Weathers and Miles Wilson face at their respective schools.
