08.15.2019 - By CBS Sports Eye On College Basketball Podcast
Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander get going on today's episode by revealing how a man who does not play tennis winds up with tennis elbow -- in both arms. You already know which of the two this happened to. Then, they get to the curious story involving famed attorney Michael Avenatti, who is facing multiple serious charges in multiple cases, but nonetheless has become the figure at the center of allegations toward Nike for allegedly paying multiple high-profile high school prospects (11:30). Family members or representatives tied to Deandre Ayton, Bol Bol, Zion Williamson and Romeo Langford have been named in a federal complaint. This also leads to a quick conversation (30:00) on when the NCAA is going to drop those expected NOAs on big programs. Then it's a fun convo on KenPom's historic rankings of every program since 1996-97 (34:30). Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, UNC and Arizona round out the top five. The guys close on the repeal of the "Rich Paul Rule," (46:00) which saw the NCAA acting faster than it usually does to make change.
