March Madness: NCAA Tournament Podcast – Region Previews, Predictions, and Fab Melo Talk

In episode #27 of The Bottoms Line College Basketball Podcast, another March Madness edition, I am once again joined by Troy Machir and Rob Dauster of Ballin’ Is a Habit and NBC Sports’ College Basketball Talk to discuss the opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament.

We go through each region and discuss what games they hope to see as well as who they see emerging into the Final Four. And, of course, they spend some time dissecting Fab Melo’s suspension and what it means for Syracuse.

Right before posting this, Rob tweeted the following:

Just wrapped up a podcast with AndyBottoms and TroyMachir. Probably the best we’ve done yet.

About Andy Bottoms

While Andy was born and raised in Indiana, he would like to point out that he grew up shooting hoops in his driveway and not against the side of a barn like you see in all the March Madness promos or in the middle of a field like Jimmy Chitwood. Andy ranks among the top bracketologists according to the Bracket Matrix and has provided his projections to Fox Sports for the past three seasons. When not compiling excuses for missing work during the NCAA Tournament, Andy enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters. He is a proud IU graduate and co-hosts The Assembly Call postgame show following every IU game. Twitter: @AndyBottoms
