Julius Hodge Is Having Difficulty Breaking Into CBB Analyst Field, Thinks It'd Be Different If He Played At Syracuse

For many former college basketball players, analyzing the game is the next best thing to being on the court. If an athlete can't stick in the NBA or overseas, a career talking about the sport for a television network is often sought. 

Julius Hodge is one of these players. The former North Carolina State star, who played for the Wolfpack from 2001-05, spent three seasons in the NBA before having to resign to Europe, where he's played since 2007. Hodge, 30, is apparently close to retiring, and he'd like to pursue to career as a college basketball analyst. His NC State contacts aren't helping him achieve that goal, though.
