Pound The Talk: Northwestern football recruiting, basketball mailbag, 2016-17 look-ahead

Ben Goren, Henry Bushnell and new WNUR Sports director Austin Miller discuss the commitment of four-star defensive end Earnest Brown, who chose Northwestern over Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Michigan, Ole Miss, and a host of others. What do Brown, Trevor Kent and Austin Hiller (two other recent commits) mean for the program?

The majority of the show, however, is dedicated to basketball. How will Dererk Pardon develop in year two? Does this team really have that many 'plus' defenders? How will Bryant McIntosh play without Tre Demps as a complimentary option?

We bet on over/unders for Vic Law's points per game and the team's win total.
