For Episode 83, the guys welcomed back Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann to the podcast. He now joins an exclusive group of two-time guests that also includes Joe Gemma, Adam Jardy, Kevin Sweeney, and others.

The three of us discuss a wide range of basketball and non-basketball-related topics, including the transfer portal, Big Ten expansion, Taylor Swift, and what his go-to food was last season after any loss.

Holtmann described what it’s like navigating the transfer portal from a coach’s point of view — from the moment a player enters his name until the point where you get a commitment. How do you get that player’s contact information? Do you also contact their former coach? How quickly does the process move? It’s a perspective you won’t hear anywhere other than this show.

We also discussed the Big Ten with Holtmann — the 18-team version. Listen on to hear his thoughts on how it will impact all of the non-football athletes in the conference, and what concerns he has for student-athletes once the league expands.
