We're joined this week by Chris Dobbertean (@chrisdobbertean) from SB Nation bracketology site Blogging the Bracket and SBNation dot com to talk Iowa basketball, the Big Ten, the disappearance of mid-majors, what the hell happened to SEC basketball, and more. It's the best 30 minutes you'll spend all week.

Since we didn't play Penn State in football this year and we are finally playing them in basketball Saturday, Adam and Pat got together with a couple of old friends: The Artist Formerly Known as Run Up the Score (@pancakecatapult) and Kevin Powers (@thefolkist), editors emeritus at Black Shoe Diaries, beer-and-Wilco afficionados at Slow States, and current first-ballot Big Ten Blog Hall of Fame inductees. That is, if they had such a thing. We discuss Penn State basketball. When that subject matter is exhausted four minutes later, we move onto the current state of PSU football, one of the conference's most interesting current topics.

After an extended break, the podcast returns to preview Tuesday night's hoopyball game against Michigan State. Adam and Pat are joined by Chris Vannini, one of the quartet of death at The Only Colors, contributor at Coaching Search dot com, and occasional columnist at the Detroit Free Press. He also might be the tallest guy that Michigan State has available for Tuesday night.

The podcast returns to preview the Outback Bowl matchup with LSU. We're joined by Matt Harris (@MHarrisAdvocate) of the (Baton Rouge) Advocate, a man who grew up in Missouri and somehow ended up covering LSU athletics in Louisiana. Sound is slightly intermittent throughout -- thanks again, Skype! -- but it's worth a listen. The man knows his stuff.

And so we've come to the end of the road. Still, I can't let go.

It's Michigan week! Celebrate with a man who has introduced more European terms for feelings to the college football lexicon than all others combined, Brian Cook of MGoBlog! They run too many zone plays! Their offensive coordinator is predictable! Their quarterback is kind of underwhelming! It's basically 2011 Iowa!

It's that time of year: Our annual hoops preview podcast with Justin VanLaere (@storminspank), current contributor at Hawkeye Nation and former Pants author. And, like every other time Justin's on the show, Jacobi is conveniently missing. He claimed he had to walk his cat, which is ludicrous.

Hello, friends. Today's episode of Black Heart Gold Podcast features Kirk Herbstreit.
But Mr. Herbstreit also joined us to talk about College GameDay, the Big Ten, Michigan State, Nebraska, Wisconsin, and even the Iowa game this weekend. This should not shock you, but Kirk is a professional and a gentleman, and he was a delight to have on.

It's a rare Iowa-Ohio State game, so we have the good fortune of talking with Luke Zimmerman of Land Grant Holy Land. The man formerly known as worstfan discusses what it's like to be a supporter of the only Big Ten team worth a damn and admits that OSU might be just a bit vulnerable. It's a good show.
