Listen: Amy Lawrence, Football And Leslie discussed on Early Morning Praise with Larry Tinsley
"The the money cut there at the end, so to speak Derrick rose saying it multiple times in his comments about Tom those people who say that I can't continue to play who don't believe in me. Will you can kill yourself. He did later apologize and said that he was just passionate about what they've been oh has meant to him. And that he didn't mean to be insensitive. Yeah. I think those comments again would have been a much bigger story. Had it not been for the fact that you had the college football national championship where a lot of the sports media was pointed. But when you hear it so having read the comments. Yeah, they definitely were eyebrow raising. But that hearing what Derrick rose that actually hearing the words come out of his mouth. They're they're a little more studying at that point as for the Timberwolves. Who knows where they go from here. I thought it was somewhat interesting that the locker room feigns surprise. We had no idea. This was coming like Karl Anthony towns actually said no one saw it coming that was going to get fired. I kind of feel like it, maybe not a foregone conclusion. But that it it still wasn't working there. Even after the departure of Jimmy Butler. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. I do like the idea that Ryan Saunders is going to take over. His dad was flip Saunders who meant so much to the not just the the early stages of of the Minnesota Timberwolves and making them a team from a friend from an expansion franchise to a team that would eventually make the playoffs. But a bunch of superstars went through there. Of course, if Kevin love and Kevin Garnett. And he was kind of the the father of that franchise. And now his son is gonna take the lessons. He learned into this. Interim coaching job and we'll see what happens after the season. They're not that far out of the playoff picture. The whole west is. Pretty much jammed up. But I think the timber wolves are just three games out of the number eight spot in the Western Conference standings, eight five five two one two four two two seven our toll free line.

Austin welcome to after hours morning. Hey. I can't think of a close in a realistic close and fans that would have thought that last night outcome was was, you know. Yeah. I don't wanna say possible, but likely sandwiches, pretty cool and my dad, and my brother, and I. Have a group text. Talk a lot of times about just how fun it is to be a tiger right now. And it's two championships and three years been to the playoffs. Four straight years. It's just pretty fun. It was a crazy game last night and very very thankful for that Trevor Lawrence. He I mean right now, he's definitely on a attract. I would think to the NFL if he can say healthy. He's got a he's had some pretty good talent in his first year. He's got the tools, but yeah, that was that was pretty crazy. But I wake up. I get to hear about about the last hour of y'all show every morning, Sean, how much I like the laugh. Yes, you probably you probably heard the at the bucks and raptors game every weekend. Every time the the raptors made a turnover the production guys at the stadium for the bucks. Quite quiet laugh. As a just like a humanitarian over like a dig at him. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. It was when I heard it. I laugh very very hard. Did you laugh like Hawaii? No, I did not laugh like, I don't think anybody. All the the Christmas jingles that were made. From his last over Christmas. Pretty funny. Hey tigers. And I'll just listen to hang up have a good day. All right. Thanks, and congratulations. I actually had heard. I heard the laugh, but it's Austin points out. This was something that bucks were doing in house. And he reminds me I need to go back. And listen, I was so wrapped up in football that I didn't have the opportunity to listen. But I will. And we'll see if we can find some audio to use on the show for our home show. Leslie, you'll be our last caller. She's an Alabama. Leslie, you got about sixty seconds. Go ahead. Okay. I was gonna wait in on the championship. But just not totally myopic about four four on the wildcard picks, except when the bear kicker decides to hit the upright, so. Wackadoo championship. I just wanted to thank you for verbalizing this. I've been listening to your show. Since the beginning. And what a travesty because you know, the fact of the matter is after the whole football season was a strong showing have to visualize and comprehend. This is your standing, but I think the mental collapse. Amy was the second intersection that state kick. Meth. Yeah. When the second interception incurred. I think that's when they should have taken out too. Oh, really, see? Now. I'm I don't think I agree. You're not the only one who said that. But the the fact is he's a better passer. And if they were gonna fall behind I get it. He made a mistake. He airmailed that path. It was so far over the head of his receiver that that it was it was bound to get picked off. There was somebody back there. But I feel like because to was the better passer. No at that point, they weren't so far behind but at the second half, you can't make the change because likely with Jalen hurts at quarterback. You're not going to be able to throw the ball up and down the field successfully. Leslie, I have to let you go only because we're at the end of the show, but I'd love it if you'd call back, again, this is not the end of the Alabama story as you know. Thank you so much for listening and for and for making sure that you weigh in. I appreciate Bama fans who have called to say or to give their opinion to say, congratulations to Clemson, by the way, if you're waiting for an expansion of the college football playoff, you'll be waiting until twenty twenty six at least they're under contract. You've got no shot so close that door. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. Home.."
