Duke, CBS, Basketball discussed on CBS Sports Radio
Eight five five two one two four CBS? Do you believe dukes go to a national championship game this year? Or are you taking the field? And also give me a coach in college basketball that you're rooting for as we get ready for the NC double A tournament as we finally reached election Sunday, we went through a bunch of coaches in the last segment tumor coaches that I'll root for NATO coach buffalo what Bobby Hurley was able to do there at buffalo. And that it's been continued by NATO to something very special. And then also Matt McMahon the head coach Murray state we had on yesterday. Those are going to be too trendy picks. I think when you start to look for upsets we'll start to see actually in terms of seating NATO in buffalo squad. Outside going to be a favourite a lot of you know, in the game the first game that they play. However, the buffo could be a trendy pick to the Sweet Sixteen and maybe Murray state as well with John Moran who could be the second overall pick in the NBA draft coming up this summer. Let's start things off in Cleveland will go to Abe. I opposite Gelb on CBS sports radio. What's going on? Hey, what's up, Zac? Love listening to you. Thank you. Appreciate what you got from it. Oh, I just thinking I I thing. I I'm gonna take Duke or the field. This got one two and three prospects is like it's almost like the Golden State Warriors in the NBA. They could just flip the switch just like that star playing against Syracuse is turned out like that. And they Don. Actually down by huge amount. Then you've got you've got then. Then I'm gonna have to refer Duke being a bull fan. Gotta I'm hoping that they can get somebody off of the Duke and sticking to Duke for the coaches question. I mean, I respect greatness. I may have to go with Mike. Yeah. Yeah. You know, it's tough to you know, when you have my says, he's the best coach sports. So you're not really going on there. But yeah. Coach gays definitely one of the coaches that's easy to root for and this team to me. There's some years they're not like. I don't wanna see them win as someone that's neutral here. And I don't care if duke's playing greater they're playing poorly the Duke team to me this year is a fun storyline. Now. Here's Duca Golden State, Golden State. They lose a game. It's not a problem. Do quizzes a game. They're going home. Jato in six games the NCAA tournament. And if you lose one you're done and the one and done style NBA at least have some room where you could lose a game two or three in the tournament or in the playoffs. You just can't lose four and a series. So it's big there. Conrad in Milwaukee next up on CBS sports radio. Conrad. What's up? Yeah. Just wanna throw two names in the hat and one you're going to have to help me with coach K coaching Marquette right now having a heck of a season. Well that Steve OJ hausky the coach of Marquette. I got I I honestly think that he's I it's a good. You know, he's done a heck of a job with that with that program in the last couple of years, and I think they're going to try to make a good push them. Heck, oh, heck of a lot of good shooters. And then Greg guard from old UW, you know, he's got a potential Naismith winner on his team. And you know, they need. I don't think they're going to go too far. But if they go Sweet Sixteen then it gets real special, and I really hope just for Ethan have having a heck of a career for Wisconsin breaking all sorts of records. It'd be great to see them into an elite eight final four. But my my. I think it is about Duke this year in in heck of I haven't seen a great do team. Like this since I was rooting really hard for JJ Radic. That's all I got later. Appreciate a Conrad. Thank you for making the phone. Call is always here, we go the triumphant return of hippie in south beach, Miami hippie, good morning. How are you? First of all I want. Williams wants to play basketball when Kevin Durant where the school yards and played with the kids throwing a timeout. I love that. These guys is nineteen years old. That's awesome part resign Williamson because he could have done the money situation. Think about the economics. I don't have to play on the number one. Exactly. He's the kids the kids happy. He's pilots. His wife. College kids. I. I knew this guy. I I for whatever reason I was at Brooklyn university. There's a school that's on map, and I used to know this point guard down and zone. It was just amazing how these people treated like kings in college. We're having fun. And it doesn't matter how big or how small the campuses when you're an athlete and people go watch you play. You're the star of the campus. People wanna see and that's why it's so cruel honk K coach. In all basketball. He coached the US team your team because all you got that. He wins wins with and that one. Motivational speech. I think in the greatest motivational speech. I don't. I I it's winners and Jack. But I gotta tell you. The biggest story questionable to me. This whole week. What did I do? Friend of mine in. I. Showed up. Yeah. I did a show this week there. That was like time travel you white willing to another power back. Endorsed in on that station. Very well. Every week. Couple of years. Ravin up in Boston that well hippie. Actually, I was thinking about you. Because you talk about winners. I was the winner. Not because I did a show there this week, which it was fun. I was the winner though, two weeks ago. I had Joe's stone crab for dinner. I was in Miami. Graders. Shown only a real short season. Yeah. You. I didn't know that. But that's the fact that they had the lobster MAC and cheese. I had the Friday. Ooh. Shrimp. The had the stone crabs that was awesome. People are freezing. S everywhere in the country right now, Zac, except me. In Miami eighty and I just don't understand why everyone who's called in. And calm. Flooding spot and enjoy your life every day in warm weather, happy the love thank you for making the phone. Call Hepi was on fire actually tonight. Sometimes they'll make some points and you'll go see all here tonight. That was one of his better calls. I'll tell you happy must be studying up. And he was he was like an Ivy league type of student right there. They talk about in politics, and I'm not trying to get you know, partisan or anything that a lot of times when they go into debates. They try to set the expectations low when they perform people like oh my God. Can you believe the performance? It's kind of our grading happier. And I love. I love him to death. But you know, when you set the bar so low so many times, and he come and you're a great caller. And you're just there then all of a sudden you'd think oh my God. What a great call maybe hippie got paid from somebody else to get into an institution, and he paled bit more attention the last few weeks when he wasn't calling us, and he learned something going to college. Or maybe he's being paid by somebody else to compliment you all the time. Who knows are you saying I'm not saying anything, I don't dive into conspiracy theories. I'm just so out so our hippie and Brown on my payroll 'cause those guys get compliments more than anybody. Sometimes. I question it. I question. I'll let me let you in on a little secret. If I am paying someone money to make a compliment about me. I will quit doing this job. I have money to spend on a lot more important things. Like what I'm going to have for dinner. Future cars future house future apartment in New York City going gonna move in a few months. I mean living in New York City. You think I could have a house. Future houses website. Older apartment. I yeah. Okay. I thought you were trying to tell me you're a house ended apartment. No, I'm not that wealthy. So you think I'm gonna pay hippy or Brown who probably? Require a big fee money to say positive things about me. When I'm also a few months going to be paying New York City, which is out of this world ridiculous. Well, let me stop you right there hippie requiring a big thing. I'm sure a six pack of beer, and a, you know. He's one of the best. You'll callers ever. He's tight with all the host across the country. I hear him on Dan, Patrick, Mike francesa, I hear him on Colin coward. I here on Tiki and Tierney. Hippies everywhere. Why be that much? No. But if he wants to listen to people that matter, then you should probably just keep it locked right here on CBS sports radio and called Jim Rome. Move Scott ferrall. Okay. Bill writer hippy and ferrall would really hit it off. I feel like yeah. I don't know about that one. You don't know, you don't think so. I thought they would. Let me go to the two hundred and fifty four th pick. Length round in. Let me see what year. This was. This was the one thousand nine hundred seventy five baseball draft. That's the great Geraldine, Houston, Gerald. Go ahead. My friend is how are you doing? I think the round right, by the way. Did I get that information writer? Yes. Yes. Yes. First base. Right. First round. And didn't eleventh round. I was pretty good player. If you had a better agent you would have been in the top five rounds. Yeah. That's right. I learned from that situation. Let me say something you can ask when you when you speak of coach K, and you speak of these great coaches that big schools then TWA tournament in my I've always thought was for everyone to have the same opportunity to win. And we both that no that's not true. And we give these accurately to these coaches like they so great and feel Jackson which always didn't think he was decorated coach mile when he went to New York is the talent around you. I looked at the USA today. Top high school players and Duke got four I believe I can coach if I can get the top four of the top five high school players come to my school. But they don't always win. Calipari doesn't win every year. I didn't say when I say get those players Duke doesn't win every year but do pass opportunity. So that's Kentucky to get those players. And what it what would happen?.
