Pound the Talk: Lacrosse and baseball updates, basketball ranked in way-too-early top 25s

Spring sports talk and much more.

NCAA Basketball: Iowa at Northwestern David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

This week's Pound the Talk is here for your listening pleasure. Will Ragatz is joined by Tristan Jung and Josh Burton to break down the seasons and big picture outlooks of Northwestern's two biggest spring sports, as well as talk some basketball (it's still hard not to). To start, Tristan provides his takes on the lacrosse team's up-and-down season and what the outlook is for the rest of this season and beyond (0:45). Then the guys provide some hard-hitting analysis on Tristan's ridiculous Northwestern coaches Royal Rumble article from yesterday (12:30). After realizing they should talk about some actually substantial things, they move on to a discussion of Northwestern baseball and Josh expains that the team needs to show more signs of improvement this year with a potentially bright future not too far away (15:35). Finally, they wrap things up by discussing Northwestern basketball being ranked in many websites' way-too-early top 25s, where they would rank NU for next year, and what variables will determine whether the Wildcats can live up to that hype (29:45).
