"He didn't get the ball in his spots in a lot of paladin came toward me. Like if you go and you give me the ball here here or here so we joked about it a lot but we met so well when he got behind the defense he wanted the law. A new record love anytime sometime. I do it from half court because he was such a graceful athlete. And i knew if he didn't touch the ball three or four times down he would power so off. He was such a great player to his credit. He had to touch it. He knows survey suitable all the time but he just had to touch it. If feel lucky was part of it. This was a different era of college. Basketball back then. The nba wasn't the cultural forces today. David stern was still early in his tenure. Magic johnson and larry bird were national superstars but not global stars. Michael jordan was becoming michael jordan but his bowl. Seems we're still nowhere near contention not yet and in college players typically stayed for years fans really got to know these guys today the six-man man on an nba title. Contender is more famous than the biggest college star back. Then players like bias were more famous than the vast majority of pros usa. The boston globe chat fen remembers. It was the height of college basketball to me the mid eighties. The biggest and the acc and that stretch from like eighty to eighty six. The most important thing was it built up over years. You had rivalries and not just among schools the towns but among the players guy stayed I i'm not gonna laments zion williamson leaving duke after a year is the right thing to do but back in those days. Queuing was georgetown for four years. Chris mullin was the saint john for four years. You anticipated seeing those guys. Play each other not over the course of a season but over the course of four years. And that's just incredibly different from what we have now and allow the interest to build and build and build covering college basketball around dc in the early to mid eighties. Mike wilpon was surrounded by stars. There was ewing at georgetown. David robinson navy and ralph sampson virginia. Me right now. If i could recreate it and i was the first night opening night. All these guys were in town. They were all clammed. Same time who would i go and see. I go see les biased. Didn't disappoint he. Famously dropped forty one points and a to duke. His senior year. In a few weeks later he played another game. They're really elevated biased. At that level of national superstardom unranked maryland versus number one north carolina down in chapel hill of number one ranked north carolina crowd of more than twenty. Two thousand is not handle. Watch the tar heels. Take on the maryland terrapins. Michael jordan was gone. But the he'll still had brad dory who would go on to be the number one overall pick and make five nba all-star teams and they had kennedy smith a future. Nba champion and now even more famous as a t and t broadcaster and they were playing their brand new gorgeous arena. The dean dome named after their legendary coach. Dean smith was a loaded team. Derek lewis again always always go in one to win a game. We knew that the odds was high for maryland. The game did not start off well. Carolina got big by up to fifteen points in the second half but kief gatlin remember how the turps started cutting it down possession after possession stop after. Stop recap chipping at it seven added. The whole team was playing their asses off. What if it wasn't for bias. Things would have ended differently. Lynn was incredible. If it would have been three at that particular time he might have had fifty. I think he like thirty five or thirty six quit. He was incredible and into just.

A. on at CBS yesterday at the show the sports world the network was consumed by the story of number twelve the ballad of Brady Tom Brady heading to the Buccaneers that's a lot of bees in so Brady joining forces with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin who may already be the best wide receiving tandem in the NFL should be reason enough to understand why Brady at least partially shows the Buccaneers what does he want more is Brady and the ballad of the box looking to add another beat one of the killer bees as it and told the old brown reports are the teams that were interested in getting Tom Brady in recruiting Tom Brady in signing Tom Brady were told or at least got the impression that Brady is also interested in bringing Antonio brown with him no I don't need to say much more about A. B. we all know the types of disasters he has created it since he left Pittsburgh and while he was at Pittsburgh I mean the last calendar year has been an unmitigated natural disaster when it comes to A. B. so we ask this question why would the most decorated the most successful the winningest quarterback in NFL history that already happens to excellent wide receivers as I've mentioned it before including yesterday when we talked about the Brady signing Chris Godwin and Mike Evans both ranked in the top fifty by pro football focus who rated the best individual season last year within the NFL we're talking about two top fifty players according to the metrics at pro football focus Chris Godwin was number twenty that's how great his season once he played alongside James Winston so why would Tom Brady wants H. o'neill brown what he's already got weapons there why would Brady invite that headache it is where we began to your cold open.
