Authorities provide updates on the investigation surrounding Mike Peake and the New Mexico State basketball program: one of the assistant coaches and a few of Peake's teammates had larger roles in the incident than it initially appeared. On the court, the New Mexico Lobos, Utah State Aggies and UNLV Runnin' Rebels are all undefeated to start the 2022-23 season. All three have made jumps in the Mid-Major Madness Other Top 25.

With Feast Week in the rearview mirror, Ian Sacks and Austin Montgomery provide their thoughts on one of the busiest weeks of the college basketball regular season. Portland looked sharp against the likes of North Carolina, Villanova and Michigan State. Gonzaga showed some flaws in its loss to Purdue. Houston reaches No. 1 in the AP Poll for the first time since 1983. The San Francisco Dons have shown a lot of promise this year. Pl...

Fordham fired Jeff Neubauer on Tuesday, meaning we got a chance to engage in our favorite activity: baseless speculation about college basketball coaching hires. We also discussed Terry Taylor, Richmond, and conference tournaments before jumping back to coach talk because we just can't help ourselves. Learn more about your ad choices.

With reduced schedules, constant pauses, and more, teams have not played as many games as they normally would have by mid-January. This has left us with a handful of undefeated teams, and some of them with a real chance of finishing the season unblemished. We take a look at each one of them (minus Alabama State, sorry) and talk about their chances moving forward. Then, we move on to Dayton before having some fun at Hannah's expense...

This week, Northern Iowa announced that it would forgo the remainder of its non-conference schedule to try and get healthy. The Panthers are 1-4 and have now lost star AJ Green for the season, so the balance of power has shifted significantly in the Valley. We break that down, then look at the San Diego State Aztecs who are somehow even better than expected. The gang also touches on Grand Canyon, Rhode Island, Western Kentucky, and...

It's been, well, a week in college basketball. The most anticipated game of the weekend (Gonzaga vs. Baylor) was called off and the Bulldogs are now paused due to positive COVID-19 case(s) within the program. So instead of breaking that game down, we discussed the Mercer Bears and why they are Sam's mid-major crush of the week. Then, Russ challenged Sam and Lance to a game about Ohio's 40-0 run before we started speculating about t...

There’s no better time to make reckless claims about the quality of college basketball teams than after precisely five (5) days. It’s science. Western Kentucky and Richmond are awesome. Northern Iowa stinks. Gonzaga is basically the ‘96 Bulls. Most importantly: Grant Golden remains our son. Sam and Russ were on again this week, while Hannah Butler made her podcast debut to help break it all down and more. Learn more about your ad c...

Well folks, the 2020-21 college basketball season is here. Mid-Major Madness has staffed up in recent weeks and we are thrilled to welcome Lance Hartzler and Sam Newberry (among others) to the team. Lance and Sam jump on the pod to talk about their mid-major backgrounds, what they're looking forward to this year, and to help Russ figure out how the hell this season is going to work.

It takes a lot to bring us out of our offseason bunkers, but a global pandemic sure did the job (after like 4 months). We've hit the point in the summer where it's time to start seriously looking at what sports will look like in the fall and winter. The Ivy League has announced it will not play until January at the earliest and Stanford has cut a bunch of athletic programs. It's not looking good! Russ and Cam talk about what needs ...

There are no sports. At all. It sucks. Today was supposed to be the first full day of the NCAA Tournament and instead you're scrolling through your podcast feed and reading a description about an hour-long candles discussion. I'm so, so sorry. But Cam and Tehr make it all worth it, I promise. Introducing The CamTehrion Collection. Our own Cam Newton and Tehr Umar chat for an hour or so about whatever they want. No script. No outlin...

February and March are the two best months of the college basketball calendar, but Conference USA takes it to a different level. First, it brings us bonus play, where the top teams in the conference all face each other in hopes of improving seeding or postseason bid opportunities. Then, it's their one-of-a-kind conference tournament, where the men's and women's teams play in the same stadium on two courts that sit atop a football f...

Remember last year how the hope for a 2-bid SoCon was all the rage? Well, this year the conference isn't quite as good, but that might actually be possible. East Tennessee State has built a great resume and, if it falters in the SoCon tournament, will get serious consideration. We also dive into Gonzaga, which still has the dumb narrative of not being able to win in the tournament despite, uh, always winning in the tournament. Then...
