In this Game Theory podcast, good friend of the program Jeff Eisenberg stops by to discuss two topics: First, they chat about the Final Four, and start with Gonzaga. Jeff wrote an awesome story over at Yahoo Sports about the road Gonzaga has taken over the last 30 years to get to this Final Four, and they talk about that as well as some other interesting nuggets about the Zags. Second, they chat about Oregon, and about just how they have gotten to this point.  In the second half of the show, Jeff and Sam discuss how they'll be voting for Player of the Year this campaign. Jeff has a Wooden Award vote, and Sam has a Naismith vote, so you can hear how two voters basically went about making their decisions in terms of their vote for player of the year. They also chat briefly about coach of the year, and what factors go into voting the best coach in all of college basketball, an admittedly ridiculous and futile exercise for writers to undertake.  Our sponsors today are MyBookie.ag, where you can get a 50% first time deposit bonus by using the promo code "THEORY", and SeatGeek, where you can get a $20 rebate by using the promo code "GAMETHEORY" in the settings tab.
