The Nittany Lions dug themselves quite a hole over the holidays. The devastating home loss to Rider on Christmas Eve Eve Eve and crunch-time struggles at Maryland on the second day of 2018 left Bill, Chad and Eric pondering just what comes next for Penn State. In this edition of the hoops pod, our panelists discuss:

  • The Northwestern game and glimmer of hope it provided
  • The short-term and long-term future of the program, as happens every podcast
  • What sets Mike Watkins apart from his peers, plus his standing among B1G big men
  • Jamari Wheeler's bright future
  • Rasir Bolton: more like Rasir Ballin'
  • A two-bid Big Ten
  • Clemson, for some reason
  • Off the charts train sounds in the background
