CBT Podcast: Miami, Ole Miss and Oregon on the rise, Missouri and Notre Dame fall back

Jan 23, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

Shane Larkin

Episode 7 of the CBT podcast is here.

Host Troy Machir is joined by College Basketball Talk writer Raphielle Johnson to discuss a litany of different topics, including the teams and players that haven’t gotten the recognition they deserve, for both good and bad reasons.

Miami, Ole Miss and Oregon are all sitting at the top of their respective conferences and here are not more than a handful of people out there that could have predicted this. Troy and Raph discuss how they got there and if they can stay there.

On the flip side, Missouri is struggling to find an identity without Laurence Bowers and Notre Dame has not been able to hack it on the defensive end.

We also discuss some marquee players that haven’t gotten the recognition they deserve and the roles they have played in their team’s success.

Finally, we discuss the changes that need to be made to the NCAA rule book, specifically the elbow rule. It has to go. There is no other way to put it.

So if you’re ready for the best 30 minutes in college basketball, click “play” or open the link below and let’s get things started.
