The Double Bonus: The Selection Sunday Episode!

Tim and John S are back again! Today they’re discussing last night’s bracket announcements, and the Selection Committee has sent Tim into an existentialist tailspin that has him wondering if the world’s events can ever be anything other than random. Also discussed: the value (or lack thereof) of RPI, the meaning of the phrase “First Round,” the four #1 seeds, and which first weekend matchups they’re the most excited for.

The Double Bonus: Episode 3

John S and Tim are back with another college basketball podcast (No, they haven’t given up on writing posts… yet), and it’s the longest and most action-packed podcast to date!
