We all know coaches prepare for college basketball games but so do broadcasters. Radio and TV guys are famous for drawing up these intricate lineup cards with all sorts of notes, statistics and reminders scribbled on them.

John Fanta has been doing a lot of scribbling lately. The host of Big East Shootaround on-line,, the new `Demetris and a Splash of Fanta’ podcast and now play-by-play voice for several Big East men’s and women’s games, Fanta is like all of us. He’s day-to-day. So is his schedule. He’s had too many days of crafting those lineup cards and then filing them away in frustration once a game is postponed.

Like all of us, Fanta is hoping for as few disruptions as possible over the coming weeks. We discuss the crazy schedule, John’s fascination with winter weather, this weekend’s Providence-Seton Hall game and more.

Here is this week’s 401 Podcast:
