Courtside: Greenberg and Dakich recap the Champions Classic and chat with Chris Beard

Dan Dakich and Seth Greenberg tip off the podcast by discussing the Champions Classic, Cole Anthony dropping 34 in his first game and Virginia holding Syracuse to its fewest points since 1945. Next, the guys are joined by Texas Tech head coach Chris Beard (10:46) to talk about how he doesn't plan on rewatching the title game until he wins the whole thing, what's changed with recruiting after last year's success, the concept of "coaching through tape," his love of Whataburger and the origins of the Fireside Chat. Later, Seth and Dan touch on Andrew Jones dropping 20 for Texas in his first game back after being diagnosed with leukemia, the championship probability of the four Champions Classic teams (33:44) and Baylor-Washington in the Armed Forces Classic.
