This week’s B-Fox and B-Frank Show is loaded with news and happenings from College Basketball and College Football. The guys open with a discussion about Reggie Bush and the end of his disassociation with USC. People also seem to forget that OJ Mayo was in the same boat and is now welcomed back by the Trojans.
Next up, Florida passed a law joining California and Colorado as the first states to allow for College Athletes to be paid for name, image, and likeness. The difference is Florida’s law will be enacted next July, 18 months before California or Colorado. This should force the NCAA to speed up their process regarding NIL.
In College Basketball, we had a pair of team switch conferences as Robert Morris heads to the Horizon League from the NEC and NJIT is going north to the America East from the Atlantic Sun. The Brians discuss what this means for each school and their new conferences.
Villanova’s Saddiq Bey has announced that he will be staying in the draft, the guys discuss his potential, some comparisons and what this means for Villanova heading into next season.
The Phil Knight Invitational announced a pair of really intriguing games between Gonzaga-USC and Oregon-BYU. A pseudo WCC/Pac-12 Challenge will take place. B-Fox and B-Frank both agreed that BYU is the team to watch to see how they build off of last season’s success.
Lastly, as has been the case the past few weeks, the guys discuss their virtual College Basketball teams in the Heat Check Sim. Following a stunning loss to North Florida, B-Frank’s Pirates have cruised to an 11-1 record, while B-Fox’s Bulldogs have struggled heading into SEC. Both have landed some high caliber recruits but there is much more to be done as the Big East and SEC are loaded.
