All Ball - All-In NCAA Tourney Argument; Guest: Former Belmont HC Rick Byrd on College HOF Selection, Program Building, NAIA to DI Jump, Near Duke Tourney Upset
In this episode, Doug gives some early takes on the college hoops season and makes the case for letting every team into the NCAA Tournament. This week's guest is legendary former Belmont Head Coach Rick Byrd, who discusses his recent College Basketball Hall of Fame selection, growing up as the son of a Tennessee sports writer covering the Vols, his path into coaching, building Belmont from an NAIA program to a consistent Division I tournament team, battles with Nashville rival Lipscomb University, and how almost upsetting Duke as a 15 seed in the 2008 tournament helped jumpstart the program.
