0 Comments

Believe it or not, but college basketball season technically begins this week, as programs around the country are allowed to start practicing as early as September 25th, this Tuesday.

With that in mind, it’s time for us to kick off the process of previewing the 2018-19 season, getting you ready for everything that will happen in our beloved sport for the next five months with a series of predictions that, hopefully, won’t prove to be totally and completely wrong by the end of the year.

Here is a complete schedule of everything you can expect to see from us over the next six weeks.

And be sure to bookmark this page, as we will be updating the schedule with links as each story gets posted. That way, if you miss anything — which is unlikely if you follow @CBTonNBC on twitter and like the College Basketball Talk page on FaceBook — you can go back and find it quite easily.

As always, the easiest way to access the podcasts is to subscribe on Apple PodcastsStitcher or any other place that you can listen to podcasts.
