Ted was tremendous. Because you know what those two leagues are tremendous all season. Long games aren't games. they're events the acc was anti climactic but great for josh passenger and the greatest shield in the history of life. The big east to me was phenomenal. I mean patrick ewing. Not only does he no longer needed credential again but he got into madison square garden and walked away with four games in four days and his team played like an old vintage georgetown team. Pac twelve stolen a bid which was really cool. Wayne tinkle's got it was who was on the hot seat. It was so cool is good coach. A good person attack boil.

I'm gonna tell you houston's legit at chance due to their games including the championship game in the ac. That is a legitimate. I was happy that drake dot in. I was happy that twenty five and four guy in. I thought that was terrific. I love the fact that the drew brothers are in the tournament. The demolishing of creighton shocked the living in. Hell on me. And says i'm telling you i like when you lose guys mclaughlin aquino record and next thing you know man. What are you doing better.

Tournament was off the charts with the championship. Game and college basketball delivers it delivers every damn nights. Let's go to the west ready. Let's do it all right now. Let's do this number one seat. I was thinking what games in the upper half of the west. Are you looking forward to see. I wanna see what. Oklahoma can do eight nine game now. Maybe it doesn't matter because you're gonna play gonzaga. But i think this i think if you're gonna play along krueger team whether you're konso martyn missouri. Who has struggled or whether you're gonzaga. You know you're going to play a very very good basketball team. And i had them earlier in the year they can shoot it. They defend it. They play hard. I don't think they're overly talented and the kid to get something done but lon kruger is so good at dictating pace. That if i'm sitting here with gonzaga i wanna lesser coach in my second round game assuming that they win. What do you got. Well you know i actually. I think missouri can win that game. A jeremiah tells me he's going to have to go out guard on out on a primitive 'cause they're playing brady at the five and they've run them all over the place on the other side though rate mattis gutter guard that dude on the block to is become a good player control martin's team when they're older and more mature and her physical they are talking tournament. Think about what he did tennessee. So you know this is going to be really good game because you've got a tough physical team in missouri. You've got a team that attacks match ups plays almost four guards in oklahoma. I'm actually leaning towards missouri in this match up. Well you're going to be wrong and that's okay you can be. It's okay. I can be wrong. It will be the first time won't be the last time and you know that's right. I don't have either. We'll on from barry. I but i touched on that but also got to say tony bennett said that most of his team is in quarantine south. Now i don't know about you but that preston kid that plays at ohio university. Ooh yeah he can go and all of a sudden. You're talking about a team that wait a second. I know i know. Virginia's good. I know virginia came on. I know they ended up with the one seat in the acc tournament. But seth you're playing against a hot as hell ohio university team. A team led by jeff bowls. Who frankly he's the perga- guide ohio you because he loves ohio you. He played there with the with the shock of the mac. But when you're playing a team in quarantine sat that tells me they're not practicing. That tells me this is gonna be a hats. This'll be a good game regardless.

3 Reasons Why Big East is the Most Intriguing Basketball Tournament
"Is my real opinion. I think the big east tournament is the most intriguing one for for this reason. There's a handful of reason number. One villanova has no point guard now. Justin moore ankle the kospi's we just found out that justin. Moore's not going to be playing in this thing Twenty seven points per game between those two now. I mean the game from villanova as we know in the new iterations of the biggies has been dominant. They win the regular season. Big east tournament right over there still time and here still good enough to win at eight. So let's not get ahead of ourselves and count them out yet but it makes it a lot more interesting because it's like. Oh what house villanova congress because your best player yes. He's not playing. Yeah what what are the what's going to happen. They're seen hall saint john's. I'm looking at this game on thursday. That is like a. I don't know if it's a plan but it's play out for sure. Whoever loses that game doesn't that's intriguing creighton. The greg mcdermott situation. I hear you say loser leaves town man. That was really the we we know the greg mcdermott's situation they got bruin there but like they're they're they're working through. Whatever that is like xavier saver that is on the bubble. They'll they might be playing crates and crates trying to get some mo jo bags and butler had that one game against villanova where they realized life and then and then we get to the bottom of the bracket with yukon you. Let's be honest. Your own has slowly turned into the favorites and again this is not a companyman move. I know we have coach. Dan hurley on the show today but uconn in the you know the majority of the country it feels like they don't know who to look to to college basketball and therefore defacto we go to uconn right here. We are back in the big east for the first year. Back in madison square garden in the big eastern star seem to be a line if you're yukon though bula there

And then macnamara Gratis Chinstrap and came back Eric, door that was invaded. Any rows. Everyone's all right number seven for you.

And you've got Hoon. was asked a question about Ryan Gums and why he did not bring him. The Yukon and he goes I. You know I did tell Ryan. Does that make you happy to hear? That did not bad. He talks about a MEK okeafor. Bad then not bad play is the not bad and this is. That's the only time I could do the Calhoun accent by the way when I say they're not bad, not bag.

How does it feel to have a guy that was in your backyard? and You let slip away to grass today and. Jim Couch goes absolutely if it was this, this is the big east, too. Because depending a small coaches and taking everything personally because I actually felt like it wasn't a bad question. If you go back and watch the press conference like it's kind of a valid quite like the guy wasn't trying to be a about it, he was just like. Like Ryan Gomes's pretty good. Is there anything you know? Maybe I? Don't know the back story. I don't know if this report is like Badger Calhoun about it a million times before that, but in the vacuum like asking him about. Ryan the Connecticut Kid killed you today. That's a decent question like. Would you like to speak on that and Calhoun just goes. It just goes off. It starts dropping. F-BOMB says they're not bad defense that he took Mecca Okra Koran Butler instead and the best part about the state to put a big bow on. It is that this was the season that you goes on to win a national chain? Can Look Century and BJ alder and Mussa. Ishmael?

Say what's on their mind, or what's on their chests, whatever say, and then they're going to know have this kind of like walk back. Emotional like I'm sorry. I was just a little heated I'm just a little heat. I'm sorry. Let that slip and it's like okay you gotTa. They. Wanted? During. Who I am you know? I'm sorry. I'm a competitor. I just WANNA win so badly. We all love it and we're like. Yeah, we get it coach. We're sorry we Berkeley while we're on the Syracuse UCONN train here I'M GONNA make my number. What around seven my number? Seven pick by seventh rafic is the six overtime game between Syracuse Uconn a game. That is just absolutely absurd. Looking back on it. It was absurd in the moment. It was one of those games that like we were talking about baseball. How baseball's trying to make games? Games shorter, their extra inning games and I made the point that like once. A game gets a certain point. You kind of just like screw it. Let's just get crazy. Let's go forever. That was this game I. Remember what was going into four overtimes. I was like all right I wanNA see twelve overtimes like I wanna see I wanna see just an absurd amount of overtimes. When you know when the second overtime when when we were going into the third overtime like God, just in this game and by the time before. Ended I was like all right. I hope this goes river. Eight players out eight five more players had four fouls when this thing was all said thirteen players had four more fouls in this game there were one hundred two point scored after regulation ended. And then the other, the other thing I wrote down. That's absurd. When he looked back at the boxer, eighty rounds came off the bench for Syracuse and played fifty minutes. That hasn't been record that. Yeah, there's definitely a rightfully fifty minutes off the bench for Syracuse so Again one of those games where if you were watching it, you'll always remember your feelings watching it like just kind of what that experience was like at watching six. You'd almost didn't even matter who want like honestly there are days where I don't remember who want, you could catch off guard like hey. Who on the six overtime game I'm like? I. Fell Asleep for. Fifty. Minutes, but it doesn't. It doesn't matter who won the game. That's that's the other thing we should say it..

"That is that is quintessential old days that. Coaches are just fighting. Coaches are dirty cruden rate there. As part of the game. Meanwhile by the way we should Richard Lucar, still alive ninety five. Still going strong, yeah, this was an eighty six probably wearing that sweater that he's doing. WHAT IS WORTH CAL DENIES IT Paul Evans Denies It. Of course you deny. Can you imagine like saying yeah I said that familiar, but whether it's true or not doesn't matter. That's the joy of the old big east. It doesn't have to be true. It has to sound causal enough to get us to believe it. That is number five of my list time. The John Perry told recruits. Lou Carnesecca had cancer. He's going to die based on nothing in particular other than just his desire Linda recruit. I think that that is honestly the the the perfect fitting. You know as far as like what is when we say like the the allure of the old big east outside of the basketball. What are you looking for? You're looking for that. You know what I mean. You're looking for the the soap opera. Is a bunch of like older men in their forties, fifties and sixties that are all kind of petty and dirty recruited that I won't forget it. It's a drop in the bag nonsense. Let's get back to this. Let's get back to personal vindictive Just. Yeah, very very baseless allegations like this is. This is what we want. We want back in College Basketball Rick stands various like I'm right over here my. You see me mark, Godfrey as well and that's where we are it was that our top ten th together. Those are Thompson. Those. Are you want to keep going? You WanNA stop? I thought I thought we were GONNA do ten are. million, other ones I wanNA perfect. I'll say this. We're running a little long. Obviously, it's going to be a long show, but I think the best way to honor. The Old Big East is to have like a little too much little too much baggage like because that was that was the legacy, the biggest by twenty thirteen to have like thirty six teams in there for five or six of them are dog shit and they're just waiting the conference down. That's a that's what we're doing here for. We gotta add some some nonsense. We gotta add Miami to the list here. Spring Miami at here. That would be That'd be great. Let's talk about those times genius. Check Miami or that's what we're doing here. Let's do some more picks. What yeah, the the old big east for the people that love the old big user really love that they're like. When did that happen? all right? Let's keep it going. Rick Pitino calls digger Phelps Go Away from dig and you've got a great chance. Chance of winning because he's never right This is Rick Pitino like we said he is. You know cemented himself as as a figure in the game. He's like I am one of these coaches I am. I said the big boy table I'm not afraid of these guys. In fact, I'll say anything to get any of these recruits. I'm not afraid to beat you by shooting threes. You Call Gimmicky and. I don't care. I'm going to win at whatever cost. And I! At whatever. Get into. But this was Rick Pitino trying to subtly. He's trying to be like a mob boss. You know it's like he's saying a lot, but but keeping it light, you know. They got. A great chance of winning is never right. He's upset about digger on his picked. He never pixes team. Obviously, this is this is the you know sort of the underbelly of of the conversation when he's asked us, but the whole point. Is that Rick Pitino? This point is pointing out to the world that he is that guy. I'M HIM I'm rick! It's mail and I will call out a one of your favorite coaches. Because again. He's never right. Around a winner I love it. That's great. This is again. It sums up what we love about the big, east is, it just keeps going. My number six pick the Syracuse two thousand six piggies title run. Gerry McNamara looking back on it as it turns out Gerry McNamara was not as dominant as I remembered him in the sense that he wasn't putting up like thirty five points a game. All that kind of stuff the reason we remember. It is because he was clutch e. The first game of the tournament they beat Cincinnati McNamara hits like a floater. One handed floater from the three point line at the Buzzer a basically as there's maybe a second, they beat Cincinnati. Jim Behind goes in. The Post game press conference. Just goes ham on on the student newspaper Syracuse, which is another great thing about the big East Bay pettiness that like I feel like the student newspaper has no way whatsoever is shown it like you should not pay. You should pay attention to whatever the the city of Syracuse. Paper is called the daily Orange who gives a shit about that Jim like it's. It's a bunch of kids like a in. Our producer Louise I, worked on yeah. But she should know more than anyone. Who cares what a bunch slept in one, thousand, nine, hundred hundred. Journalism students at Syracuse are so upset right now. They're like new podcast. I'm trying I'm trying to get the right heedful things about where's Joey lanes? I'm trying to get. A hit piece on your. This is a behind is just doing about this that they call the the the daily orange called Gerry McNamara. Okay, so after McNamara hits the buzzer beater against Cincinnati he goes in. He says our students newspaper called him overrated I'm Gonna I'M GONNA. Tell you one thing right now. We would have won ten fucking games without Gerry McNamara drops in the hard F- Don't be mad at me dead. That was recording J. Jim Behind. That was not mark. Titus drops the hardest. goes on a rant. Defenses guy in his senior year McNamara was watching obviously channels that goes absolutely nuts. The rest of the way with with clutch play after college play. They beat UCONN OT the next game number one UCONN. McNamara once again hits the three at the Buzzer of regulation based basically the by when I say Buzzer you know what I mean, the Senate Otc they beat Uconn. It turned around. All the graphics are showing that no team at biggies tournament history has ever won in overtime game and then won the next night as well. Syracuse says we're GONNA go ahead. Be the first. They beat Georgetown, a B. Pit in the final that they went. Four Games have four days the first three of those. Those games were decided by one possession. And then the the final wingers fit they win by four. One of the most historic big would be the number one big east tournament run without gamma. Yeah, but that kind of sets the timber like we saw Gerry. McNamara did and it, and it gave us the context for then five years later when Kimber did it. We're like Oh my God. What Tim is doing. We thought we would never see it again with Gerry. McNamara Syracuse did it..

"I was GONNA say basketball is a team sport until Kimball Walker carried a team to a title. Then I might be individual now if Jeremy Labs. Like will forever be fighting to remind people that he was on that team. Good and he played. It was Oreo Cookie Jeremy Lamb. And but Kimba goes absolutely. He averaged thirty eight minutes a game during those eleven games. That's the other part that's insane. It was like he was. He was doing absolutely everything you count as unranked to start that season they finished ninth in the Big East regular season, but they were also like ninth in the final eight people. If I remember correctly there a nine seed in the in the big east, but they win five games in five days. Even Tournament, is it? They had a lot of close calls. Arizona had a shot to beat him at the Buzzer Djamil Horns three miss. Kentucky shot to beat him in the final four. DEANDRE! Liggins had had a three kind of. Thing it was He missed, too so they had the right combination of lock. Of Indiana Drill Lincoln's taking bigshots. Rushing three days when you could have maybe worked the ball, a little bit more I. It's a run that those of us that were alive and witnessed. It will remember the rest of our lives. The two thousand eleven Kemba Walker run. That is that is like the Seminole Lake, yeah I mean we still talk about every time? I say tournament rolls around. We talked about our Kim again. Who are the guys that are going to do them and every single year? None of those guys come anywhere close, and then people get mad at us that like, why would you? Why would you suggest that? You know some guy. Could I'm trying to think of an example could do that were like well I mean you have to understand like the Kimba? The Kimball blueprint is is the closest guy. Was Carson Edwards He was the closest we've seen, but even that I mean the anyways to the elite eight, and that was the whole. The reason Kimba is cardiac. Kimba he's the Guy De. We heard of the cardiac packing, eight, nine, hundred three, and they just get hot from the tournament. They make it run. They win the into Aa Tournament and that's exactly what you did, but it wasn't just because Sidney Lowe was you know out of his mind if because they were playing well as a team. And a great draw and they made a nice run like Kimball. Walker quite literally said I'm the best. Point Guard basketball. Yes, basketball may be watered down, but I'm going to hit the big shots and he wanted to hit the big shots, and it was almost watching like watching an NBA Point Guard play college, Basketball Tournament and it was like Oh. Wow, this one guy can really isolate an score whenever he needs to. And then Oh, there's Jamie Lambo there just in case like tell team or something. To hit a mid range jumper to keep them honest, you know, and and somehow that was good enough that year I mean. Calhoun to me. About him as a coach to be able to work it out also the ugliest incident, the ugliest title game we've ever seen have that year and still people fondly. Look back on that run. You know like you would think that. The team that won that title. They would put a big Astra's next to it'd be like I. Mean Come on, you can't win a title shooting whatever presented what was like twenty something? Percent from the field won the title against mother horrible horrible game, but it doesn't matter though the run itself that eleven game run with so good that it overshadows the stinker that they they capped it off with. It was funny like it was kind of a rock and a hard place in the title game where it was like. There's no way that bowl is GonNa win the National Championship. There was just no way that was going to happen. We're going to win the game. You know you're going to win the game, but they did everything they could not to win the game. It was just unbelievable throughout the entire. They go little run here, brick spiracy twenty years later or ten years later. Almost I mean Brad Stevens purposely through that game because he told himself I can't. We can't win this I. CAN'T I can't be a bank show Gordon. Hayward shot away from winning a national title, and that team doesn't win, and then my team with Matt Howard is my best player doesn't win, and we're like what CIBA's other your data. because. They played pit in the second round. That was the that was remember the game like pit blue. This might be on your list I don't know. This council is a big moment. Matt Howard Ninety four feet from the basket with less left. The free throws fit I thought that was a one eight game. That was a winning. I think it. Was An eight. See that your. Bread, Steve, I think breasts even like we can't win the national title this. I think he said himself that would be the death of college basketball you can. Come home to college basketball. Before pick. My number four pick nineteen, ninety seven the providence friars led by Pete Gillen, a guy by the name of God shammgod that a Lotta people know and dared. Brown who really was the hero of this game twelve for sixteen from the field thirty three points. They beat the Duke Blue. Devils and this is one of those times in my life where I Pete Gillen ended up going to Virginia. I Love Begin. He's a great New York coach, and he's quite a character, and he used to have some great one liners about going to cameron indoor that I grew up loving and Gosh Jim God is my favorite name ever. In basketball, or maybe just literally ever, and I remember Pete had a great quote. Theories like if you can't win with God. You're not a really good coach and. As someone who grew up thinking that coach k. was the devil himself. Have God, beat the devil as a five year old that a lot of things for me as a five year old when it comes to good and evil, what round is? This isn't a sweet sixteen, Ninety seven hundred sixteen providence be Duke. That's a good pick I don't remember anything about it, but no, no, no, it was career versus devil. God versus the devil for me, and God. There was the first time that like I'd seen good happen. You know like Oh that makes. God would beat the devil. endeared Brown really was the the hero the game he'd like thirty five point thirty three point. But. God God. That's all I. Remember for me. That was a big east great moment all right very good pick. person is that's all right My number four pick is the nine hundred eighty five title game, the biggest upset in NCAA tournament title Game History I. Don't know if that's actually true by Vegas. Standards It's true. The sense that Villanova had to play the perfect game to beat Georgetown they did is shot seventy eight point six percent from the field date. Defending national champion Georgetown Hoyas the number one Patrick Ewing senior year. Everything was lining up for Georgetown to win this in the eighth-seeded villain of wildcats when their first national championship in Nineteen eighty-five biggies versus biggies says we talked about earlier. Saint John's also in the final four that year George Sound beat St John's in the final four to even get there. So nineteen eighty-five was kind of a big year for the biggest in that regard that was saint, John's Georgetown both Rin there. They were both to the best teams in the country, and then on top of that the team, the third biggest that was in the final four ends up winning the whole damn thing so I think you come out of the nineteen eighty five season as the big east, and everyone's got their chest out like we are the best conference college basketball. There's no ifs, ands or buts about it, and that was the first year that the NBA. NBA introduced the lottery that was which is a similar year in basketball, too, and then as sixty four teams in the tournament for the first time and eighty four teams in the I. Say Yeah, exactly, and then so that is sort of like the blueprint of what we see today. In the start of it was all big east. There was all old big east so when people think about that their mind, they think of those guys being in those moments in his funny. On on my list, all I had was nineteen, eighty five final four so I think. Covers I don't think you can take that anymore? Yeah? Feel good about that Glad we got that one covered for me. We're GONNA. Keep this thing rolling this band. This is GonNa, be. This personal to you hundred ninety nine. No I mean it's obviously going to be personal where you're going with this, but I had that coming up as one of my big board, so. I'm glad I'm talking about God. Shame got picked with personal. This one is for the old big east, and it's because this was Yukon's first national title Game Right. They the National Championship..

"He got his dampers approval and he got. Got Out it's amazing, and it's like the old like bashing of New York basketball to right. It's like this little inner circle of Philadelphia's like Old East Coast basketball, and that's why it's so perfect. That is the old big east, because it's like all these guys and Philadelphia New Jersey and New York finding these talented kids, and then being able to the system, and like you said it was like a small little fraternity coaches that are all very familiar with each other. That are all competing with each other, all advancing the game within the talent pool that they're pulling from is unlike we've ever seen in God. If you really look at it Mitch and the guys that fell through the cracks that were so talented and you know you mentioned being the next great one. There was a myriad of those in the eighties. The diamonds in the rough and The big east is full of those guys I. Mean We? We're GONNA talk about a lot of you want to get into allocated to. Let's start drafting I'm right, so we're GONNA draft. How do we want to decide who goes first because this is going to? To be contentious draft in the sense that there are a lot of great moments at the top and I. Think we're going to be fighting each other for who gets to claim them. My idea because I actually don't know this off the top of my head, and if you don't either I said, we're doing this way are doing. How many national championships did biggies claim from nine hundred, seventy, nine to twenty, thirteen, the original biggies. We're not talking about the new Villanova The two that they won, they don't count for our purposes here. How many national changes do you want to say our number at the exact same time? Work through it and figure out who's closest. Let's do it perfect all right we are. We GonNa Kill Ya. One two, three, five six. Okay, all right. Let's figure this out all right all right. That's worse so. The first season that's bill? Dot Com donkey. It doesn't count because they were in the metro. Right Yep. Eighty. One is Ronald Reagan his shot Indiana's Forces Carolina to play in that Game Bob Knight. Eighty one. To Eighty C. Eighty three. Eighty four Georgetown rate against yes, nineteen, eighty four. That's one eighty five is Villanova Big Georgetown Yup. eighty-six is Louisville. Eighty seven is. Indiana is Larry Brown. Eighty nine is Michigan beat Seton Hall on their yeah. Yeah nineties unlv Yup ninety-one is Duke and coach Jane Ninety Two Duke and Coach K. and ninety three is of course, woody Durham's great call up. North Carolina Tar Heels Ninety Four Arkansas beats do can Charlotte Right Yup Yup Yup Ninety. Five is Ucla Yes howdy Sixes Kentucky Ninety Seven's Arizona messed up when we get to ninety five I wanted to say godfried and. Ninety five godfried all right now. Ninety eight is as Kentucky where up to ninety nine Yukon counts I one. Two thousand is big tins last title Michigan, State Two thousand, and one is coach. K., Jay Williams, Duke. Two Thousand and two is technically the last big ten title Maryland. Do. Three or Four mellow. We're going to win. We're already at four for the. No four is big east yet, your. Mecca for. Try To stop right here in apologize to the big east for seeing five. I can't idiot now that I'm seeing tallow, it's. Only the reason I said more than five. Because the Yukon and Yukon sneaks up on. It felt like you can't. Do Three but it felt to me like I guess I was thinking the Big East was a situation where. The big, the big easy honest. You Got Georgetown you forgot your. Four. That's what it was. 'CAUSE piggies. You not remember the Patrick. Title, you wouldn't really. Back to back, they remember have losing eighty, five, eighty two. They don't remember when at eighty four I think. In, my mind, the Big East is so big that like it feels like a conference where like? Swallows up the NCAA tournament aware like I I was thinking like not that many win, but people like biggies. Fans don't care because they would rather with the big east tournament. That's more important anyway like that kind of thing course. I'm an idiot, so we're. We're five is where no phone on North Carolina. Seven is Florida. Is Kansas, which we can say, Donna could be ripple effect biggies because he goes to the final four seven. Yes, so that could be. That could be counted. Oh Eight is bill self and Kansas? Big Twelve Oh nine Carolina ten is Duke Eleven Yukon. That's eleven there. We go twelve twelve Kentucky. And then thirteen is Louisville with an asterisk. That's a genuine asterisk. But it doesn't matter because you already want so one two, three, four seven, though ribbon. If you take away Louisville's in two thousand thirteen and we do. You were right on the money. Either way you to go first you win, you said six. That was nice. People enjoyed that reading, but will compete page, so we decided. To explain why look we had to break it down ourselves. I also explained that the draft process. This would be my number one. Pick right the way that we're doing this. This would be like I. WanNa take. This pig is my top pick. that I want to get on my team right? Is that how we're doing this yet? We're GONNA. Let's alternate first of all. You're picking to reiterate what we're doing is any moment from nineteen seventy nine to twenty thirteen? Thirteen involving big big basketball it. You're just picking them out. You're picking the moment in time to memory. The whatever you get the whole thing you can, it can be on court off court, and it could be a legend. It could be a story that like is actually true, but like you heard it was doesn't matter. We can run the whole game, but we have this. This is the what most wide open draft we've ever done on the show number one pick. A Lou Carnesecca sweater game in Madison, Square Garden February.

"Of money. We didn't realize this until Monday. Thirteen conference realignment starts happening musical chairs. Not a dime back known at the time before you know it, you stuck. Sit there scratching their ass. They get stuck in the American with a with with south, Florida. Esab you all them Ned. It very started because Yukon invented the biggies they held. They were one of the founding members, and finally at long last order has been restored. They are coming back. Do you have any thoughts you want to share before we get into this? Just have to say this. When when I think about the big east. All I think about is rivalries that are mythology right there. Just the ultimate things that we all remember watching. You know maybe not all of us, but you know I remember stuff from the eighties and I wasn't even alive yet. And it's almost like a Johnny appleseed type thing. These stories have been passed on from parents to kids to coaches to whoever may be in life, and everyone knows the characters we know the Calhoun we know the behind when we know the Mass Amino is we know these people we know these coaches, and we know their stories, and they all hated each other. Oh, allegedly apparently, and it was just vicious in the words of Jim Calhoun. My first ten years in the big east were magical. Then we got civilized and ruined everything. That's what he was the Jim Calhoun quote we you and I like to ham it up when we talk about the old big east because that's what we do. Out in the same vein as those who have been. All second. But we generally do love it. I I was doing some research for all this and I came across this state. Buckle up for this one. Are you aware that that for let me throw it a before? I get to the thing I was going to say I'll throw this at you. So the big. The first season of the Big East nineteen, seventy nine eighty season you. So from nineteen eighty to nineteen ninety, that's eleven years of the first eleven years of the biggies, every single one of the founding members, all seven of made at least one elite eight. Five of those seven made final four state. Do, you understand how ridiculous that is that you basically conjure up a conference, thin air, and then everyone every single team in the conference goes on a run, and then the one of the teams that didn't make a final four is you can? You didn't really do anything till the ninety S. And then you won four national title since it's incredible when you look back on it, the run at the biggies had but the one thing I wanted to the the the big. The entree of of this little ran up going on that I wanted to throw at us this in my research, I covered this in the nineteen, eighty, six eighty seven season. These were the coaches in the Big East conference. They were all there at the exact same time. You have John. Thompson at Georgetown Jim Behind at Syracuse Jim Calhoun at uconn. Rick Pitino at Providence Lou Carnesecca Saint John's Rally Mass Amino at Villanova. It was Jim O'Brien first year at Boston College Jim, O'Brien, who then. Then goes on to Ohio state. He had taken over Gary Williams Gary Williams. was there the year before, but now Jim O'Brien their silicate coaching zone right Seton Hall had PJ Carlesimo and then Pete had Paul Evans Zoo not a Lotta people remember, but he was kind of out of his mind as well and an assistant coach Paul. Staff pit in the nine, hundred, eighty, six, eighty seven season was John Calipari all of those coaches were in the big east at that time at one season during one season they were all there enduring that season a young Rick Pitino was going to anoint himself as the hot new young coast. I decided that three point line was perfect. Team to the final four and. It's. The the the big east was perfectly timed. It was perfectly perfectly suited for the time of Magic Johnson Bird playing seventy nine in that title Game College. Basketball is forty million people. Watching people were going crazy. They're like what is this college? Basketball is amazing, and then we got the doctors of Dunk. You know and everyone's like the slam dunk is back. Back now love the slammed up. We used to hate it when Kareem did it, but now we love it. It's weird how that works. Twelve years later, The biggest was right there for the prime rib at all, and they were in the middle of all of it, and they had underdogs like Mass Minoan. Villanova they had stalwarts like Ewing Georgetown. It was just like the perfect story are. Forget the timeframe but I I wanna say it was in with within like a twelve month window. Maybe we'll say eighteen months to be safe. the nineteen seventy-nine title game happens as you said Berg burgers magic of most famous title game. We've ever had college basketball. Most watched like it's it's. It's like a seminal moment. College basketball million households, forty million people that sticks in my head, because it's so ridiculous as for forty million people watching. But within an eighteen month we have that title game the creation of the biggies and the start of ESPN in the northeast in Connecticut. Right by Yukons camp like all of all of those the hiring of coach, Dick Vitelle was hired in eighty right when it started. I mean that's. The basketball. All of those stars allied. Not that, not that like the big east was lucky I. It's not like you know I. I still think at the big started nineteen eighty-six, and would have been awesome as well, but just you look back on it. That is amazing when when you think back on the big east as a whole, it does feel sorta. It has like a Saturday night. Live to where like if you were a college basketball, coach, or player or any you? You existed in the nineteen eighties. Slash nineties, and you don't have some sort of tied of the Big East like if you like a graduate assistant at one of these schools at one point like you didn't play like it feels like you're Kinda aren't as important. Because it feels like literally. Everybody had some sort of connection to the big east. It's not true, but that's what you're thinking like John Callard periods assistant I I mean I don't know how many people remember that. You're like Oh. My God everybody seems to billy. Donovan played at Providence like just all the cross pollination everyone seems to dip their toes in the big east as some point in time whether you're there for long run behind and Calhoun and John Thompson or whether it was just like a one or two year thing like Patino was only there for two years at Providence, but he was there. He got his dampers approval and he got. Got Out it's amazing, and it's like the old like bashing of New York basketball to right. It's like this little inner circle of Philadelphia's like Old East Coast basketball, and that's why it's so perfect..

"You kind of saw a little bit. I'll use the mountain west as an example last week Air Force has to play that. First Day against that I believe it was Fresno state airforce gets the win. So they're the eight c down or the nine seat against San Diego State and I played Air Force in the first half because San Diego states that one seed that that has to play at eleven thirty. So it's an earlier tip off. Air Force had played the early game the day before and I like to play a team that played the day before. Especially the first or second time. Is You get deeper in the tournament. That scenario really doesn't matter as much when you get to those semifinals and final rounds but in that first and second round play against the rested team especially in the first half because the team that has played has already had to go through and play a game and so they've already gotten their jitters out now these other this other team they play. The thrusted has the first game jitters and you often see a much more competitive first half at least and and more often than not full game aren't so let's take some time here and move over to the Big East because I wanna make sure we got some time to talk the players championship here. Don Sawgrass but the big East is another one man. I mean it's just like the big twelve in the sense that you know I don't think nineteen I think sixteen is could conceivably win it. Maybe seven depending on your view of Xavier. Creighton the favourite. But they're missing a really big piece. Now Inzaghi aroused in fact. Creighton may not be the favorite anymore out there at a lot of different places. All you've got Villanova and Seton Hall that both tied for the regular season Ground Creighton. Got It based on tiebreakers. You've gotTa Butler team. It's dangerous providence. Team that came in playing as well as anybody at Cooley. Getting his team back into the field with that late surge Marquette depending on your view of miles Powell Bay have the best player in the conference in Marcus Howard Wide Open at MSG. Yeah it really is and I'll start with the top of the bracket I think. Look with xenografts out and he may be back for the NCAA tournament. That's what the I guess. The rubert prognosis is going to be but he is going to miss the big east tournament in Madison Square Garden. So I think Creighton in that first game they win over the eight nine which would be either saint. John's Georgetown down of that rally. Without your best one of your best players one of your key guys in that first game but this is obviously a very vulnerable number one seed so I think that winner of the Butler providence. Game in the five war. Good chance they're going to end up in the final in the Big East tournament. And I'M GONNA go with Butler to emerge that I know everybody's on providence in that spot because they did win six games the road this team on Valentine's Day Thirteen and twelve six and six in the league probably not in the NCAA tournament and they riff off six in a row. But eventually come to an end where you kinda hit that wall little bit and I think maybe Providence Does that in this spot? They split the season series. Actually both road teams one and in the Pera Games with Butler and providence and look Butler kinda hit a rough spell starting bid January and then kind of into the middle of February but they did win their last three games. I know two of them were against Apollon. Saint John's hall but maybe they kind of found that found their legs again so I took Butler Actually at about plus five fifty to win the Big East Tournament and then on the bottom half Seton Hall has has been very good in this tournament. And when you got a big time score like Powell which Marquette divorce does with Marcus Howard Seton Hall. Be The team. I'd be looking at the bottom half of the draw though. Yeah I like Seton Hall at the bottom half to here. I think they're plus three forty out there at some places. You could probably find better. Make sure you shop around for the best prices always here. I kind of like Saint John's over Creighton. If Saint John's beat Georgetown. Saint John's highest turnover percentage on defense lowest turnover percentage on offense. So they take good care of the basketball. They get extra possessions they just don't shoot it very well creighton going to. Msg A place where it's very very hard to shoot. I don't know how this tournament will be attended given everything going on in the big apple here with corona virus and everything else. That'll be kind of interesting to keep an eye on but it's already a bad shooting environment anyway. So I kinda worry about that four Creighton but I like Seton Hall here Seton Hall. Are they going to chance to wipe the slate clean? Finish the regular season. Well so now you Kinda give them a little bit more incentive. I don't think Jay Wright needs to prove anything I don't think Crayton's worried about proving anything without Ziggurat Seton Hall. You'll maybe kind of wants to win this thing and he did that. These teams want to lose. Obviously these teams want to win any banner that they can. Seton Hall is just maybe a little bit more motivated than everything else not to mention. Villanova does not get much from their bench at all whatsoever. So if I'm Jay Wright and I don't have to play three games in three days I'm kind of okay with that. Yeah exactly because that's kind of the the what what works outlook you. I mean these conference tournaments provide us the opportunity to get a trophy and provide you the opportunity to get a championship and obviously that matters in bonuses for coaches contracts and whatnot so these guys want to win these things but sometimes they can work against you because all of a sudden You Win a conference tournament. Usually those are teams in the NCAA tournament at least more often than not. It's going to depend on the draw and the individual games and scenarios but more often not I kinda WanNa go against those teams that have had to play four and five games to win a conference tournament and then after turnaround especially if they gotta play on Thursday and their conference tournaments and Saturday or Sunday. So you know getting still pretty quick turnaround even when you have four or five days in between and and some of these teams can just run out of gas at the end of the season. Especially if you get sent a long way from home. You know if you're in the Big East you get sent to California or you get sent to spokane or Salt Lake City or something like that you know. I don't know where all the regionals are being held. But just using those as an example. Where if you go play in elevation or maybe you go play three time zones away or something like that. That's still tricky. And obviously now you've got all the travel considerations with corona virus and people having different worry levels and all that type of thing but yeah I mean there are a lot of things that go into these conference tournaments into the minds of these coaches as well to where you know maybe Villanova's in a close game with Seton Hall and maybe they don't play their regular guys thirty eight minutes or something like that. That could have an impact on how these conference tournaments wind up going one. Last quick point I wanted to make sure I know we kinda started sort of doom and gloom with the cancellation of the CBI. That's not actually run by the NC Double A. So maybe this one's kind of a different type of animal and also to a lot of financial considerations with that because these teams Kinda pay their own way to travel it's sparsely attended anyway. But still it's still you know maybe a gateway into other things being canceled. Maybe the NIT does go on his plan but maybe something like. The CIT doesn't where these teams don't really sell their allotment of tickets. Usually anyway right. The nineteen is owned by the NCAA now so I would think that that that's going to continue to go on. The Gazelle Group owns the CBI and then I forget a college insider runs the college insider tournament. So those games are all. Campus Site Games Much like the Nit Game Dr. Until you get to Newark City in Madison Square Garden for the semifinals in the eventual championship game. So yeah a lot of this is probably look. You can't really conducted that that's why I'm surprised the CBI did it so early because you can't really conduct it with campuses because different universities right now have different restrictions for this corona virus. Some of them are business as usual. Some of them are Are Doing online or or remote type of classes with the technology that we have now today. So yeah. It's very hard to consult with all these schools because you don't know you wit which schools. Yeah we're GONNA be in these terms and the thing that's crazy to me and again you and I talked about this before we serve recording here. You're the MAC tournament being played in an empty arena in Cleveland on Sunday in Cleveland. The Minor League hockey team plays an afternoon game. And as of now everything's on as scheduled with fans in attendance and all that so nobody can attend the Mac Tournament for three days but then Sunday. It's okay for everyone to go to this minor league hockey game. It's just it's very what's being cancelled. And what isn't and where fans can show up and where they can't and be sort of reading between the lines a little bit knowing that Cleveland hosts regional next week for March madness. You can't avenue empty building for one. Ncwa event and then a building full of fans for another right. I don't know how this is going to play out but man this is going to be crazy for the NCAA tournament. We'll be able to talk about this next week with Western. We have some more clarity on it. But just the first four could have to be moved out of Dayton. You gotta play everything by ear. It and the problem is from a betting standpoint again. This creates so much uncertainty that the big twelve tournament for example that we talked about the first segment with Brad powers like our Kansas fans. Literally going to be the only ones that go. Because it's a short drive from Lawrence. How many points of Homecourt is that worth all the sudden for Kansas? It's crazy to figure all this stuff out. Abedin context began. You could say the same thing for Kentucky who's usually writing best traveler in the SEC. Weather that things in Atlanta or Nashville New Orleans or wherever so That could certainly apply there as well and it's tough for us. It's tough for the oddsmakers to me. The Nice thing is they can put up a line and just react to what the market does. But I mean this level of uncertainty and it's tough too because you know by and large as betters handicappers uncertainty chaos variants are all really good things for us. Because if we've got a pretty good idea of what we think is going to happen and we're playing into an uncertain market a lot of times you get some good value out of that. I mean this is just. This is largely unprecedented for for the sports betting industry and especially now with Sixteen States Michigan Today Illinois. Discount it on Monday would sixteen states taking bets. Now I mean it's it's it's kind of overwhelming and again we talk about you'll paralysis by over analysis and all that maybe we're all thinking too much about everything that's going on and we're GONNA wind up missing some stuff. Yeah exactly I mean everybody Because there's no real uniform standard for something like this so I mean certain people are going to do different things not allowing spectators certain people are gonNA CANCEL EVENTS CERTAIN EVENTS. The show must go on. So yeah the the that. That's what makes it really weird. And and and and and and provides another yet unique challenge to us as betters is because different scenarios are going to happen here so The the unknown. I mean look the betty market is like the stock market. The market often hates uncertainty. And that's really what we have going forward all right. So let's talk about the Players Championship here down at Sawgrass and everything pretty much business as usual here. Obviously there's some golf considerations further down the line to where events will be played played. Whatever but this one is going on as scheduled at least as of now rory's your seven two one favourite rom the second favorite ten to one Justin Thomas in the twelve to one range. Shambo fifteen or so a little bit of love for Dustin Johnson. This week is prices come down. Patrick can't lay who I liked. His prices come down from twenty five to eighteen or so a lot of prices coming down for the bigger name players this week. Yeah which which with us kind of a surprise me a little bit because this has been kind of a hit or Miss Tournament for for for top players. was looking at some of the The statistics and little trends and little nuggets about this tournament. Rory mcilroy comes in as defending champion. And he's the rightful favourite. He's got a top five streaker better in every event that he's played since out early October. So it feels like he's.

Podcast where we sometimes discuss Cama fighting and leaky Black Matt norlander is here with me and I think if you don't mind I think I want to start with the big east because fascinating situation in the big east heading into the final weekend of the regular season but first let's back up on Wednesday night. Seton Hall had an opportunity to secure. Its first outright biggies title since one thousand nine hundred ninety three all the pirates had to do be Villanova home. They were three and a half point favorites the odds in their favor but then villanova thirteen three pointers in upset. Seton Hall Final Score wildcats seventy nine pirates seventy seven inside the her pope center when you combine that result with Crayton's win over Georgetown. The biggie standings now look like this Seton Hall Thirteen and four Creighton twelve and five Villanova twelve and five. And if you look ahead of this weekend. Seton Hall is at Creighton on Saturday. Villanova is at Georgetown so if the favorites in both games in other words if Creighton beat Seton on Villanova beat Georgetown Seton Hall Creighton. Villanova will all finish thirteen and five in the big east and we'll have co champions times three norlander it's prediction time. Who Wins the Big East? It's multiple choice situation. Is it a Seton Hall outright be Seton Hall and Creighton Co Champs or see Seton Hall Creighton and Villanova? Three way tie at the time. The answer is C and what you may not realize because you didn't detailed there in your intro laid all out. How about this if Novo wins against Georgetown going to happen and then if Creighton can win at home against Seton Hall? That would mean unbelievably while they all have the same record in terms of seating and tiebreakers when the Big East Tournament Starts Creighton would be the one. Villanova would be the two and Seton Hall which has been in the driver spot for two plus months in this conference it was the preseason picked to be the best team in the League would actually be the three seed once we got to Madison Square Garden. I'll be there next week for the Big East Tournament. That would be a an unexpected turn of events in the broad picture but I think heading into the weekend. I do think that's where we're GONNA end up all three of those same same record youth me. No Okay I've got Seton Hall winning at Creighton and being the outright biggies champs for the first time since nineteen ninety-three back when they were led by a young man named Terry Hair. No I'm pretty sure that's a character and children's book. I read in my kids Terry. Terry's a real person Terry to hair. He's scored twenty two points per game. Oh my goodness who was the second best player on that Seton Hall Team? I don't know that that's all I need to know. Okay but I do know who the little sophomore more point guard was that averaged six points and three assists per game. Okay go ahead trivia time you go ahead. I know I got no idea here okay. I wasn't locked into Trenton hoops back in ninety three Dan. Her a shame on me. Shame on me Dan Hurley and his Yukon. Huskies getting the win over Houston on Thursday night. Making the Cougar sweat. A little bit heading into postseason play in Yukon might be the spoiler of the American Athletic Conference. Full disclosure here just so our listeners realizes we are recording this on Thursday night. So you've got this podcast. Well in advance of its typical Friday placement. We hope you enjoy that but for the benefit our of our schedules and hopefully yours. That's why you're getting this and we are doing this before Memphis. Wichita state will conclude so while I mentioned the American. They're nice job. A nice win out of Yukon on senior night and Pretty BIG WICHITA STATE MEMPHIS game. But we won't know the ending of that before the pods done But GP's Tigers my shocker. Certainly going at it and loser might be a default elimination game the Big East real quick. So I'm going to be there next week. I'm super excited. I was actually. It's funny you mentioned this because we were talking before the pod. We wanted to start with what we want to chat on. And you'd mentioned the big east and I was all about it because coincidentally just earlier in day. I'd have to call Mr Jay Bilas for something and he. I said are you going to be at the ACC tournament and he said. Yeah where you're going to be. I said I'll be. I'M GONNA bounce back and forth between ten but mostly Biggie said. Oh yeah that's going to be the best tournament that will the best of all of them and it's probably GONNA be between Big East or big ten but the biggest has gotten to a point here where it should send seven. You'd have to have a providence. Have the floor fall underneath it or Xavier otherwise the other schools are going there and I do expect it to be a tremendous tremendous big east tournament. Georgetown Saint John's and depaul all fifteen and fifteen at this point but the other seven are tracking to make the NC Double A.'s. And when you can get seventy or league into the BIG DANCE. That's a huge year credits. The Big East for For being pretty good all around and having three viable final four contenders so creighton. I should point out as I'm predicting them the lose on senior day youngest weekend is fifteen in one at home. This season the loan loss to Villanova terrific in that building and Kim Palm does project them as as a favourite but it just seems like I don't know it just seems like Seton Hall is exactly the type of team that would lose. Its Senior Day opportunity of securing the outright title and then go actually get it done on the road they won and tough road environments This season I won't be shocked. They do it again. But obviously I'm playing. I'm playing the underdog. Yeah no that's listen. It's certainly it's certainly possible. They're all those three teams Nova You know the last two the first three right now. We WanNa see at Seton Hall on the Three Line Creighton on the three line. They'RE GONNA be. It'll be interesting. You gotta figure that so right now the east if it was projected out. You'd have no if they made the sweet sixteen if they held the seeds. You'd have Seton Hall. Let's just call not to Seton Hall the three Let's say San Diego State. Which was San Diego State? Able to keep its undefeated season alive after scare urine studio. I wasn't studio. They were down at the half but they started guarding on the perimeter and Pulled away from air force still single digit decision but they were never in serious trouble in the final few minutes and they remain the best one loss undefeated team in America. You're hedging right there. I'm going all in on these tweets still got people coming African. Whatever I was. Oh I almost tweeted at you. If you didn't see Jay Jay Airedale earlier today I had. I had seen sports network on all afternoon. But I'm chasing kids so I missed what she might associate. So I I guess it was after the San Diego State win we were going through San Diego States resume like are they definitely a one. C No matter what happens in in Las Vegas and by the way they're not they could take a loss in in slip off the one line but as she's introducing the topic and then getting ready to send it to me. She goes now. San Diego State does have that one loss. I know you don't like to admit it but it did happen. Chuckled so Jamie was in on it as a definite big Shasta Jamie Berdahl. She's fantastic and that's good stuff. What I almost tweeted at you because I think it was. It was at halftime of the game. And you had palm talking about San Diego States resume and all this stuff and almost just tweeted to be like. Why is Jerry talking about San Diego State? Having lost just to tweet it out. You just to have some fun there. Because the smart asses who don't know The idiotic joke that I continued to perpetuate that you originated full credit to GP That's fun stuff anyway What was making so. Let's say they hold onto that once they would go to. The Garden Nova will go to the garden. Seton hall go to garden again. If they want to in the fourth would probably be Maryland can do what it needs to do here. But you might have Maryland or Duke. Battling we'll see what happens with that So that would be compelling for the Big East and that there's the potential. I don't know how likely it is. But you could easily have seton hall and Villanova who played a wonderful game on Wednesday night meeting again there. One on the season they could get a third match up in the Big East Tournament and then potentially a fourth one in the regional finals so that would be a plenty intriguing there. And the they've got a good shot with with all three of those teams breakthrough. And then you know providence has been insane. I mean I can't remember if I mentioned these on the previous podcast or not. Gp But providence one five games against ranked teams in the month of February. That's only happened five times in the history of men's De Sports in the regular season. Medea when sports do you want basketball. We've had a team in the span of the month. Get FIVE WINS OVER FIVE. Ranked teams kind of an insane and providence's has come back from we talked about UCLA. But this is why. I I go I go cooley over Cronin. I don't know if we need to go down that road again. Okay Okay just rank them okay. You ready yeah rank them Ed Cooley. Mick Cronin John. Wooden tight spot. I'm going to go see this is. This is why the people of this podcast we. We are addressing the tough topics that need to be addressed. I gotTA GO. I gotta go cooley. Cronin wooden and I don't see how there's any argument otherwise at this point I'd go cried. Go listen I differ with your little. I go Cronin Cooley. But but either way we know who we can argue over. Who's I we both know who's third all right now one more game before we move on? Yeah Mary kill or F- hold on hold on hold on hold on hold on. I honestly I thought you said that I thought okay. We hit the top teams. I thought you were go-. I thought you were going Butler at Xavier. One more game. I thought we were like Ireland. Gerrad Xavier's at large propositions here. But you took a hard left okay. Go ahead Mary Kissel. F- Mick Cronin. Ed Cooley and John. Would I need you to answer first before I go? Okay listen to me. This seems easy killing John. Wooden because he's already dead. Nobody you know. We're all used to. John would not be in here by now so we don't. It's not a real loss. Not only have you sanded his name off the court. You've committed murder against John. Wooden on this podcast nails named can stay. Yeah she's not the one who lost eight times in nineteen sixty six missed the incident play. Turn it that's what John did. That's what John Did you can look it up. Neal didn't do that. Nails name can stay. Mickan court so I am establish this you've killed John. Wooden continuous GLUCO. Okay there's so now I'm done to marry your F- okay Marionette. Cooley how can you not okay and then I guess it making are about the same You look exactly the same we never talk about on the podcast. You are actually the coach of Ucla. This is if you really WANNA peel back. The ID- okay. This is where this stems from when Para says Cronin over would and it's because from. I'm not exaggerating this. From behind. If you were to put Mick Cronin and Gary Pairs in the exact same clothes. You would think they were identical twins. That's where this stems from. You think you're better than John. Wooden and you want to have love with yourself. That's it okay so there it is Mary Kill F-. We've got it figured out we're killing John Wooden Marionette. Cooley F- Mick Cronin. I'm in agreement with you. If you WanNa Talk Butler Xavier we can or we can just move on. That's I think we probably need to move on but The stakes are pretty clear. Cut for Seton Hall on Saturday. You Win at Creighton. Your Outright League champs you lose it Creighton then you will share the title with at least Creighton and maybe also Villanova. Kansas released. Its response to its notice of allegations from the NCAA earlier on Thursday. We're GONNA get into that next but I tell you about seatgeek. Do you ever feel like ticketing websites? Getting to the event difficult on purpose. Sure seems that way. Sometimes it says if they're so big they can get away with not caring about customer experience as a result you get a lousy customer experience but seatgeek proves there's a better way with cu.

"Them results from last night. God sucks thank God for a leap year one but I mean I really needed this. I took the nuggets. I was the only guy here to take the nuggets. And I've said before when you lose a pickup payoff. I'd rather than nuggets lost by twenty-five then lose in overtime when they were the dog could lost by one point and I still would have covered but they lose by four. Anthony Davis hitting those threes overtime. Or big I do find it. Unfair if you're betting and you have a point that you're getting as an underdog and they tied at the end overtime. Why do you lose well gave is Technically over yeah. I'm with you WanNa give me the win. Sure Okay Great No no I'm to six.

"I generally do the big east power conference. It does matter all that stuff is true. I'm just it's not it's not the old big east it, it'll never be the biggest. That's all. That's all. I'm really saying. But you comes back and there is that and everyone's excited, and it's one of those things where we need Yukon basketball to be whatever may it was. I guess, in some weird, it always felt like yukons titles. Despite all the what was it five titles? Yeah. Four titles nine on whatever it is. So it's like all those big moments that we had him in the Napier Kimba kinda got washed away from people for the play Georgia Tech. So wasn't as you know, member move a moment because people like you should be Georgia Tech, even though we know how good, you know, BJ jailed initial isn't that team was? But anyways, all that sort of stuff kind of comes full circle now where it's like a reset on uconn basketball post, Kevin Nali. Yeah. That's, that's it has always been the thing about you, count as at all. They're there. I'm not saying this. I'm repeating the narrative is all their titles were flukes are like, yeah. They were. They were down your college basketball hot at the right time. Whatever that you can't fans are very defensive tires. There should be who gives a shit you win four titles. It's four titles, baby. What, what does this mean for the American, though, does the American matter, the Americans, like has an identity crisis, too? I feel like the big east in American should set up a promotion relegation system. That's really the answer. The big east like the real conference in the American the minor leagues. I, I really want promotion, relegation college sports so badly. I, I really really truly want that I want to get it done. I wonder what the Pac twelve in the mountain west slash slash west coast conference, whatever that looks like or I wanted with the American in the big east. Yeah. Yeah. Sounds like the easiest it makes the most sense of all, the sports to try to get, you know, 'cause the American yet basketball makes so much the Americans top-heavy to like which state and they haven't been that good recently but a Cincinnati. And, and it's like the same schools. Keep popping up at the top of the American that in the same schools are popping up at the big east in the same square like the Paul sucks and get them out of the big east and bring up, which they'll stay.

"You, you never knew you just didn't any given night teams flat dogfight. They didn't like each other. That's the other thing they just flat out did not like one. There's no love loss between them when they stepped on the court. And now it seems like they want to band together to make sure that people do remember the big east and they wanna be. There's a story. One time. Syracuse playing pit. This was like nineteen seventy nine year and, and John Thompson took his team up to Syracuse that they had an off-day Georgetown goes up to Syracuse. And John Thompson buys all the courtside seats and lines is team up course. I during that game and they all just crossed their arms and just try to intimidate the shit out. I'm making that up. But it sounds real doesn't it? That's what they stood up, and I keep repeating the story like people be like, holy shit Lor. John Thompson just took his team to watch a, a different like a different game, just intimidate. That's crazy. That is something that John Thompson do with a towel on the court. Everyone was going crazy. Yeah, it can be full moment. I just don't understand what would be the thing to the tipping point for the big us to become the old biggies. Not be just a Syracuse. Okay. I think it might be Syracuse. I think it really might be behind to the east. Yeah. Guess Syracuse in the big east again just to get all the whole teams back in just redo it just rewind what what it was. And then all their ball teams are different conferences, like Yukon footballs, in the big twelve Syracuse nasc- throat really needs to happen is, we need to disassociate football from basketball and let an quit putting them all to quit putting all sports together like take the Notre Dame motto where like Notre Dame has. I mean, they're, they're ACC and some sports, I think they're in the big ten in some things like hockey or some shit rowing, rowing. Yeah. And then they're, then they're independent football. Then. Yeah. It's, it's, it's wild to do the Notre Dame thing and just kind of all a cart. I'll cart your conferences. Can I ask how these changes go about, like, who decides to can, you just say, like, hey, we're not really enjoying? Yes, pretty much we're going to. And then the what the other conference did someone have to let the calm here. This is a great Kyle. This is great opportunity because I'm gonna use an analogy for for everyone can understand like me with women. We're gonna we're gonna like just a women to make it easy to. Let's say you have a girlfriend Kyle. But she you got your on another girl. Okay. Now, you want to break up with your girlfriend and date the other girl. But you're not sure if the other girl is interested in you. So you do the thing where you're sly, the DMZ. You're the monkey swinging on the branch. You wanna make sure you have a firm grasp on the other branch, the first branch. I'm most of my now. I was like you're a monkey dating. A woman. Like king. And then yeah, that's pretty much. It is like you, you, you decide you want to leave, you decide you want to leave. And that's awesome feelers. But then you can't like you know, you hope no one catches wind of it. And then let's say and that. So they say guess, and then, but, like, do you have to be like, let out of your record deal, like record, you know, like, how is this agent? Morale conference, owns your masters, unfortunately, but, you know you just gotta move on. And was it like the Johnny Fontane thing you're starting to break his knuckles or something? I don't understand like how, how do you get out of a situation? Like clearly they didn't want them to leave. Right. This is this is the problem. That's why the Americans really shitty about it is that, that, that you conscious like now really been and the metro it is up to the school sort of. Yeah. It's up to the schools, but most goals, I don't wanna leave because whatever made whatever it was attractive to them to get into the conference is going to keep them in the conference. It's, it's much better. Unless you're like a an absolute Goliath, like Notre Dame football was once upon a time, it's much better to be. Conference because of money purposes,.

"I mean, obviously that doesn't mean much right now, but they are starting off in college station against rice now Tina Langley has done a fantastic job with rice this season. They have a Google K on their roster ago McCain that just right there tells you that their talent, but they also have six nine Nancy Moltke, which is a big concern or should be for Marquette because they are without Erica Davenport. So where is Marquette's mindset coming in? And this is upset a lot of people are picking rice over Marquette in the first round game. What do you think I understand that choice? If I had to choose I'm probably like sixty side forty five in one that choice veal. The x factor to me is going to be the play of Amani Wilburn because I think. We know about a lazy a block that we know about in the Heideman there's gonna be circle, but if the money is going north and south quickly and eliminating the height advantage that rice is going to have and they're shooting the ball at a high percentage, then I think Marquette will have a chance because of the way that they can play off me. Now, my other thing across the board whether it's men's or women's tournament. I think momentum is highly underrated coming into this. And so I'm not a hundred percent sure where Marquette is mentally coming into this one that was a tough loss in the big east championship. And then they didn't exactly finish the season, especially strong. I think they wrapped up to last games with pretty good ones. But they had kinda faltered adjusting to planning without Erica Davenport down the stretch in the big east tournament. Caroline Kiko is one of my favorite women's basketball, one of my favorite coaches periods. And so I think she will have her focus, and those seniors take so much pride and what they've been able to accomplish me. They told me at one of their games it they knew their sophomore year that they were about to do something special. And so they've been locked in for a long time. This one. Really comes down to how. Well, they use the basketball. And if they can make rice uncomfortable, you mentioned in Langley like she's a former Maryland assistant. So she has a ton of experience. She's got hike rice play had a tremendous year and CompUSA obviously went in the copper championship. But just in general, they were living nightmare to kind of scout for have a friend who had to prepare against them. So while this would be upset numerically. It's really not an upset if you were to look at the Rogers, particularly the coaches, well, we will be keeping our eyes on both the ACC as well as the biggies Monica. Congratulations again on the great year. Thank you for joining us where can fans follow you on social media. So they can keep up with you. Nice Twitter is mcnutt Monica Instagram is the same last name I because it's so memorable. And actually the other way around was taking already so. Well, what I hear Monica. I think about love and basketball. So just thinking that That you you know know. that so often trying China, but thanks for having me on say travels for your women's tournament. Adventures. We'll definitely be watching. Thank you. We will be keeping up with you. Keep shining, darling..

"He's getting a right. You know, he's a he's a former Chris Mack assistant and steel and MAC have gone opposite ways the past two weeks because Louisville can't win a game and savior's now won five straight to to really turn season around so good for him. But for overall GP big east. It's just a big bucket. Well, how about this? And this is I think more about the rest of college basketball in the mediocrity around the bubble. Then maybe it does even about the big east. So say John's is now eight in the big east, and you and I agree. The big east is garbage this year. Like, I don't know that there's a great team at the top. And I don't know how many good teams are actually in it. I've got Marquette in the top ten so I guess we're calling them one of the Tim best teams in the country. And you might not call them that certainly debatable the computers. Do not say that they're one that's invest teams in the country, but maybe their greater at least really good and have the potential that make a deep run of the bracket, but Villanova's flaw to its core, you can't lose type games. They've lost a season built in November and December and as recently as the past couple of weeks and be considered a quote, unquote, good basketball team. So Saint John's is eight in that league and safely in the field safely. Jerry got eight see now, it hasn't been updated to reflect this loss to save your, but then ain't gonna drop them to the bubble. I mean, it might drop them to nine maybe as you put it a ten but Saint John's it's still safely in the incidentally tournament with eight and eight record in a mediocre slash bad. Big east. That's how soft the bubble is a season or how bad college basketball in the middle is this season. I agree. And I want it's funny for our next podcast on Sunday..

"And and obviously trending in the in the right direction. Switch gears to the big east. What a mess. This is Villanova and Marquette are both obviously good. But nobody else in the league. Nobody else in the league is above five hundred in the big how big of a problem is that parish. This is quite the unexpected turn of events because I don't think we would have ever thought that this could be impossible where we'd be approaching the halfway point biggest play and you'd have everyone under five hundred this. This is punctuated by the fact that Saint John's on Sunday loses at home to Georgetown, Saint John's has really slipped. I remember it splits the season series because it one in early January an OT game against Georgetown. And after that game. Saint John's is at fourteen and one I was quite confident this team was going to be able to comfortably make the tournament. It's lost every game since then with the exception of a win at Creighton at home. And Saint John's you can argue has much talent as Villanova and Marquette, and yet it's three and five and taken losses. Like, this is a problem the big east since it was since it went to ten teams with the exception of I believe the first season. 'cause when we had four it is it has had at least five and most years has had six teams. In fact, it had seven teams two seasons ago. I think this conference is going to struggle to put in and the bigger picture here. I do wanna say this February because I think we're feeling this about a lot of leagues. But like, I I'm looking up and down at at the big east. And I think it's going to struggle to get five into the instability tournament. It can I'm not saying it won't. But when I say struggle to get five, and maybe that means you've got a situation where two of those five wind up going to Dayton in our first four teams, and they just barely get over that fence. It's bizarre. What's happening Villanova and Marquette are by far outpacing, everyone not just in leak standing over. Hall record. But also if you look across Ken palm. BPI KPI Massey. All those ratings. There is a sizable gap in, you know, the next team is anyone from Seton Hall to Saint John's I. Villanova Atkin palm Villanova's twenty-five marquess thirty three and then Butler is actually next at forty seven. That's followed by Creighton at fifty. Saint John's at fifty four Seton Hall at fifty eight so on and so yeah. And I don't believe that Butler's the third best team you however did pick Butler to finish third in this league. And then you threw them in the garbage. I think that that has since gone to the local transportation, and now you're Butler Pickus floating somewhere in the the great Pacific garbage patch. So you can't get back. I will say this. I if I can get it back. I might take it because they are now projected to finish tie for third in the big east by Kim PA. Yeah. No. You can't take it back. It's gone. You you you have lost that? Maybe if you're lucky it will be recycled into something, and you can you can use that that picking that goodwill to have Butler when it ends tournament game. If it even manages to break through, but I have my doubts their overall. It's just it's bizarre. What's happening with the league? This is not a league that we thought is not as good as we expected it to be a lot of that falls, frankly on the shoulders of Saint John's in Butler, which were expected to be better than they have been the other teams are about where we thought like even like Seton Hall providence. I'd say they're about where we thought they'd be. And then know Xavier's not a strongest normally so that from you know, from a reputation standpoint hurts the league, but few thoughts savior's going to be good enough to make the installation of just keeping an eye on that. Because there is a there's a big Gulf and like Nova Marquette will compete for number two seeds. If they can you know, if they can win enough games. But after that is II also finished with this parish. And I just landed on this unexpectedly. I would intimidate that of all the major con..

"So not so much for the side as much as for the totals. All right. Let's talk horizon league one of the low majors out there, and we've got a pretty well defined top and bottom in the horizon league that would be northern Kentucky at the top Cleveland state at the bottom. So what about the horizon league Ralph? I mean, I guess we could start with northern Kentucky. And I mean how good is this team? Well, you know, northern Kentucky won it last year when twenty two and ten and when fifteen in three, and you know, you, and I am sure remember watching Cleveland state beat them to to knock them out. They were they were certainly a tournament type team. Like, we talked with, you know, let's put it in perspective compared to the big east. You know, we had the Paul and Georgetown right around one hundred of the three hundred fifty three teams. Well, that's where northern Kentucky is a hundred. And everyone else is is you know, in the I'm gonna throw right state in there because rights they to me. Bike state was the team that last year was second in the conference. Right state is is a team that returned four starters this year. Right state has played a very very difficult schedule. So right now, right states ten and ten four and three in conference play. But to me they will clearly at the end of the road be the second best team in the horizon. You know, like I said northern Kentucky is about a hundred. So that compares to the worst in the big east with the Paul. I have right stayed in the one fifty range than basically everyone else two hundred or higher. So you clearly have that definition. You know, the surprise team to me this year is Detroit Detroit is a team that was picked last by most people in the horizon. Well, they're five and two right now they played enough tough non conference schedule going eight and eleven on the season five two in conference play. And they are now coached by Mike Davis. You know for those that don't know Mike Davis. I was at Texas southern the last couple of years, and yes, the same Davis that coach get UAB an Indiana. So Detroit has that Goto type coach who this year has his son who is clearly not only the best player in the league Antoine Davis. He's probably gonna be type freshman type of the year averaging twenty eight points per game Antoine. Davis was like a hi Therese star coming out of high school. Signed with Houston. He wasn't gonna play for father at Texas southern he signed it Houston. And when my Davis took the Detroit job he asked for a release Houston. Let him out of his scholarship now he's playing for his dad his big brothers. Also in the system coach on the team. And so the tweet really has that legitimate go to score where this isn't a fluke that they're five and t are clearly not the worst team on the horizon, they're probably third or fourth in this situation. So, you know, northern Kentucky. No question, right state. I expect a big bounce back. You know, right now they lost to Detroit on the road. They didn't know what Detroit had at that time. They lost a northern Kentucky. We know northern Kentucky's the elite team, and then they also lost Illinois, Chicago that was a bad loss at home. So Scott Nagy has his guys there. He's very confident Scott eight he had an article in the Dayton paper a couple of days ago going. Into Youngstown state and Cleveland state road games that he felt his team clearly just had a little lapse to start the season..
"big east" Discussed on CBS Sports Eye On College Basketball Podcast
"I basically think you run down the Atlantic ten because if you look at all the other leagues perish, with the exception of Yukon in the American a conference and uconn fans desperately want that school to get back into the big east for a number of reasons. I don't see that happening because of football actually makes money for as terrible as you football. Is it actually makes the school money? So I don't see them taking that away. If you remove Yukon though, I think schools like Saint Louis. VCU Richmond, Dayton, Rhode Island Davidson, Saint Joseph's like those would be the schools that would in my opinion would be the ones that have approached the biggies even in an informal way to see listen if we ever wanted to expand. Here's what we might be able to bring would you be open to us because Val said, it's gotta have basketball. I in the Atlantic ten all the programs are basketball. I okay geography would mean a lot fan base being willing to travel for the Square Garden annual pilgrimage every March so. I don't know if the biggies will expand. I think if it does it will go to eleven not twelve because it really wants to keep the round, Robin. And the only way you can keep the double round Robin is if you go to eleven ten every opponent twice ten opponents twenty games. But there's there's a lot happening. They're bigs is done. Well for itself. This is now an unexpected step back your parish. But it is it is certainly out. There will be something to track in the months and years to come. I don't know if it will expand. But it is is certainly buzzing, and I would I would close with this before we get to that. I want to circle back the MSG thing after you talk. But. The fact that it's this out there to this point. I think maybe makes it a little more likely than not that within say five or six years. We do have an eleventh team in the big east the competition for that spot would be fierce though. I would say Lewis, I think. Yeah. They've got a lot Saint Louis is it has the money the facilities. It's a good market. The question is does the big east one have another mid west team or does it want? If it adds an eleventh does it want someone in a pocket of the greater northeast? Because frankly, vow said geography does mean does mean something when it comes to this? And then it's it's a private school and how big is the fan base. And would they travel while I think they'd be a fine fine candidate. I don't know Saint Louis would necessarily be at the top. But I know Slough fans believe that the that it should be. Yeah. I mean, it's got I don't know if you've ever been to that campus. But it's. I don't know if it's technically downtown or on the outskirts of downtown, but it's very much in the city and they've got a beautiful on campus facility win that team is good. The fans do show up, you know, obviously, it's dipped a little bit, but Travis Ford has recruiting at a level above its normal historical standard and they're off to a seven to start this season. They've got a win over two biggies teams already Seton Hall and Butler and they were picked in the preseason to win the Atlantic ten. So I think that if you are if you if you're running the big east, and you decide we want to add an eleven school because we want to have a true round, Robin twenty game basketball schedule, then you. Then you start looking at candidates. I think Saint Louis makes as much if not more sense than than than anybody else. Because I do think that you can. When in basketball there when they are good. You get you've got fans that show up and presumably would travel to York City for the league tournament. And it's a great market, and it's a great television market. And why wouldn't you want those things? Yeah. No, all all valid points. In the fact that the big east five years or move from from from a a scenario environment in which people thought that the league would struggle to keep up that hasn't been the case again this season, it might be slipping back, but it's still going to be better than.
