Listen: Rick Barnes, UCLA And Basketball discussed on Red Sox Review
"Hour and talk with Dan Feldman. A pro basketball talk about last night the cousins injury, which was confirmed today torn quad out indefinitely. Brutal break for for him to sit an individual. And what's the impact as a team though, for the Golden State Warriors, just how vulnerable are there are they we'll try to figure that out in just a little bit. But you know, we we ask all the time pain for players in coaches to be honest to to be transparent say they'll give us the coach speak just tell us. How you you're really feeling as a player and every once in a while we see it every once in a while player is genuine is honest. And I I usually respect that I enjoy that. Now, sometimes when those players our coaches, come out and are honest after we've complain that they're not then people jump on in in kind of crucify. The individual. Then you wonder. Okay. Well, that's that's why they're not honest today. I think we saw that to some extent again in college basketball. Rick Barnes, head coach of Tennessee. Who was certainly in the mix to say the least for the UCLA job. Ultimately, Mick Cronin. Got hired from Cincinnati goes over to UCLA UCLA botch. The search we spent plenty of time talking about that over the last couple of weeks and Rick Barnes was heavily in the mix. But there was issues with the buyout same Jamie Dixon's TCU in a lot of times when coaches state where they're at. And they don't take that next job. They really don't talk much about it. Or if they do they say, yeah, I'm happy to be here. That's all that matters. I wouldn't wanna be anywhere else. Right. What? Right. We kinda. Right. That's what you gotta say. Okay. Well, for once we had a coach that was brutally honest. And while if I'm at Tennessee fan. Probably bugs me a little bit. Everybody else, we should respect it. I get it. If you're a volunteer. What I'm talking about is today press conference. Rick Barnes was asked about leaving for UCLA in any candidly said that he probably would have left to take the Bruins job had his buyout not been SU expensive."
