On today's episode, we start off recapping the Hall Of Fame Tip Off Tournament where Purdue took down North Carolina and Villanova (05:03). Could the Boilermakers be the best team in the country? And is it time to hit the panic button for Villanova after the Wildcats blew another second-half lead? Next - St. Bonaventure and Marquette met in the Charleston Classic finals on Sunday (23:19). Nobody saw Shaka Smart's Golden Eagles competing at this level. Meanwhile - the Bonnies are 4-0 and look like favorites in the A-10. We then give our final thoughts on the Gavitt Games where the Big East impressed against the Big Ten with wins over ranked Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio State (30:20).

Rob Dauster joins to run through everything you need to know about the 2021-22 college basketball season, 21 Questions style. College basketball is older than it's been in years due to the decision to grant an extra year of eligibility. Does that mean we think the quality will be better? What is your favorite preseason bet on winning the national title? Who is your national player of the Year pick? Do we buy the Gonzaga hype? ACC: This is Coach K's farewell season. Will you miss him? And do we think this Duke team has a chance to actually win the title given that they are ranked top-five in the preseason? ACC: Is the ACC kind of down this year? I have no first round prospects in the ACC right now outside of Duke. Duke is the only top-20 KenPom team at 10. Big East: Are we sure that Villanova is by far the favorite? Who is the No. 2 team in the Big East? Big Ten: The Big 10 is definitely the best league, right? Michigan, Illinois, Purdue and Ohio State look loaded. Maryland and Michigan State are talented. Big Ten: Kofi Cockburn, Trevion Williams, Hunter Dickinson, EJ Liddell, Trayce Jackson Davis, Zach Edey, even Keegan Murray to an extent. Can you remember the last time a league had this many great bigs? Big 12: Am I missing something on Kansas? Big 12: this race feels totally open to me. This is not just a Kansas walkover right? Pac-12: UCLA went to the Final Four, returned all of its top-10 rotation players, and brought in Myles Johnson and Peyton Watson? Do we think they're the Final Four team that got hot late, or more the early season team that struggled last year? Pac-12: This is a weird league. Do we buy Arizona coming back to relevance? Can Oregon's transfers coalesce? USC without Evan Mobley? Colorado is a top-40 team without McKinley Wright? Is the SEC the deepest league? It feels like the most talented, athletic league to me across the board. How weird is this Kentucky team? AAC: Houston and Memphis are considered the two best teams in the league in the preseason. Which one do you like better? Anything teams you're looking forward to seeing? MWC, A10, MVC, rest of WCC: Who is the best team in these leagues? Best mid/low-major team?
