"gonzaga baylor" Discussed on Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ

"Progressive insurance. Guest join us on the goodyear hotline alan cohen. J. will and the coach. Seth greenberg joining us as well. This morning notorious. Rg and let's just. Let's just begin right. There is this the year every run. Has something magical in it right every championship run has something magical in it and what. We saw saturday night. Was that the magic that gonzaga needed to complete this mission. Well first off every team that wins the championship. You go through close games like that. You go through games where there are those small decisions that happen. Seth that ultra game. I'll give you one of them. Thought was probably one of the biggest plays of the game bigger. It's one you're going hear coach. You say this. I'm not coaching on thinking like a coach. More and more. Because i've been around. Seth greenberg a lot for last years of my life drew timmy. Seth four fouls drawing that at that juncture of the game was it was a huge play. And i know it won't get the same kind of love that we're going to give jalen suggs but somebody stepping in those are the defining plays that win championships and those are the plays that mark view and his team when they come back. Of course everybody talking about jalen suggs and shot right but like plays throughout the course the really gaining inches of momentum throughout the course of a game those are the biggest plays in a tournament and those are winning championship caliber place. I think the interesting thing. Jay agree with that charge. Having four thousand. Stepping up and taking charge is ridiculous. I mean being a right place being active being alert off the ball stepping up Taking away basket the play that he made right there was like the alert is to get there and make that play but there are a couple of places to me that would just ridiculous jones. Sox's block gets hung up on that ball screen. They got a switch. Timmy steps up and levels the ball off. He comes back he blocks. It gets back in bounds. Which i'm not sure if he was all right advances the ball and then that bounce pass that past tense unwritten down. The floor was absolutely sick. That was magic. Ask that was jason kidd jason kidd. That was ridiculous. And then mark. Few with timmy. At four comes into the overtime it goes bam bam bam. We're punching it right off that middle ball screen right down to gut to me. And he delivers basket basket basket. But you see wouldn't die. I mean like that was just. That was drama. That was an event that was one of the best. Most well played basketball games. I've seen in years. Ucla fifty seven hundred field forty seven from the three only ten turnovers compete in the way. They competed whether it's hawkins john zang. It was easy. I gotta tell you. I'm happy. I made it to the game because i almost got lost with the whole miley cyrus concert. The concert was an hour long. I'm like how many songs is she actually going through saying. I got a little bit distracted. And then i came back for the game. I was locked in. It was like a rain delay. There's no doubt about it. So according to espn stats information consolidate ucla combined to shoot fifty eight point. Two percent the highest combined field goal percentage in a final four game since yeah that eighty five national championship with villanova and georgetown. They combined for sixty three percent villanova. They didn't miss in that game to end up winning and it felt like. Ucla could've pulled up the same type of upset by the way standing ovation. For mick cronin his program and what they did ucla and what they're going to be doing going forward. We have to definitely point that part of it out but this get nine thousand nine. Lead changes just insane. How entertaining this game was. And so i gotta ask this and i will duck after asking it. We got the match up. Now that we've wanted we got the headline matchup gonzaga baylor. However did we already get the best game in the tournament. no we don't know yet but did not knocked will be hard to live up to this one this game. This game tonight feels like the cigarette after you know what i'm saying. No it does not. The best game in the tournament is winners. The best talent on the court and it's not a knock to ucla. I think ucla had a hell of a year. And i i agree with cronin seth. I don't know if you disagree. But i feel like they have turned into one of the best teams in the country. But i want to see the thoroughbreds. A- baylor their guard play go against alexa gonzaga. Like these to me are the two best teams in all college basketball. And they're playing tool this best styles basketball right now. Ucla's conversation but baylor's guards in the way they play. How fast can play how they can score how they can defend. I wanna see particular matchups. That i've been waiting to see because i will put that benchmark to see okay. Guards are really really good. Jalen your sounds really good. I want to see him. Go against fast elite defense. I wanna see that. Seth wayne mitchell suggs is going to be an incredible. You switch perimeter action electrical handoff action before they get that high middle ball screen. I think a couple things are going to be interesting to back. Court matchups can be fascinating. Look baylor guards. Score eighty three percent of their points eighty three percent of their points. It's absolutely incredible on the other hand. You got a team. Scores fifty points a game in the paint. Fifty points at fifty six in the paint against ucla. That's absurd that's absolutely absurd. Now i think pace it. A game is going to be interesting. One thing that bail. I i understand baylor wants to play fast. I understand baylor appleseed. A great guard play but they still gotta take care of the basketball and they shot selection has got to be good the they're reckless with the ball if they're reckless in their shot selection. You know what's going to happen going to get out in transition. Play ahead of the defense will be laid in the other abacus. Gonzaga's flow in their early. Hit is absolutely ridiculous. Vans jay. I'll tell you the other thing. Jay will talk about this all the time and you and i was a team square off in graphic on the screen. I'm not sure if we're supposed to go through that but You're the a nine point game. Obviously that team really really scores. But you know we always talk about gonzaga. They haven't played. They haven't played their schedule. Their league well first of all they challenge themselves don conference. They really challenge himself conference. I mean and they should've had the ballard damon had delayed officer it but they played the candidates. They played the west. Virginia's they played the virginia's they had. They had an incredible non conference schedule. They played up but they every time they've been pushed to the brink every time they've had game pressure. They've made a play. No they have guys can make plays. They've made a play but on the other hand when baylor came out of that pause. They weren't baylor but if you look at their. They weren't ballard defensively. Especially but now you look at their defensive numbers forty four from the field twenty nine from the three point line play in arkansas and wisconsin and villanova instill force in sixteen and a half turnovers a game all of a sudden as you would say. They got their swag. Guess do so. I gotta tell you. Though for some players have dreams when it comes to the final fours and some other players have nightmares. And i'm just going to tell you. I feel like this is as great of a years. It was her mick cronin and ucla player. There's also that nightmare. And seth i'm going to say this and i'm sure it's going to bring you back to this place you know that if you're able to score block it and the dwindling seconds you tie the game you needed to tie the game you automatically like you always have to think next play right and one of the things i know is going to haunt ucla. Is you score that bucket. Where all your players turnaround defensively. Where are we because one thing you can't let happen is you can't let somebody just turn face and mosey their way on up the court seth for. Ucla if you're able to get defensively in that position after ot after you make that bucket and really forced jalen slugs to not change direction a couple times. He.

We'd be trying to rush through this so that we could meet four people for dinner and then who knows what happens after that but then whatever happens after that lasts until everything closes and then you wake up whenever you wake up on on monday morning or monday afternoon.

2021 College Basketball Bracketology With Jay Bilas

"Feels like you might be the busiest man in america right now. So thank you for making some time for me man. I appreciate it but busiest mannered. America's this is the best time of year. So i'm happy to be busy. Jay bilas is literally and figuratively towering. Figure in the world of college basketball so it is about nine forty five pm eastern on selection sunday. You've been on tv all day. I've seen you offering wisdom's. I've seen you gas bagging as you yourself from time and again i'm curious jay. How long does it take you to fill out your bracket while we have to do it in about two minutes one. We're on the air during this brattle. G selection show. So i it's sort of the the first thoughts that you have and and you wind up picking an upset or to In each region in the first couple of days. But then i wind up going pretty chalky after that and And then i'll i write an article called the more than five minute bracket where i think about it for more than a couple of minutes and And i don't do any better. So i'm not sure that my My first instincts aren't are just as good well. I'm glad to get you somewhere between the first and second drafts of history. Because i'm staring at an empty bracket you have hastily filled out yours and i want to get into this because we have the top four seeds gonzaga baylor illinois michigan their top lining the four geographic regions jay. That aren't really geographic regions this year. Because everybody's gonna be crammed into indianapolis in something that feels bubble like is there one team among those four top seeds. That seems feels the most vulnerable to you. Yeah michigan Because of isaiah livers You don't know what this stress reaction and his foot whether he's gonna play and if he does play whether he's going to be the same. I mean machines a good team without him but they're elite offensively with him Because of how skilled he is He's a good passer. Good cutter good square. He's a terrific scorer but without him I think there are a lot more beatable if you will And they have a different. I i do think they have somewhat of a difficult path. alabama is the to in their region and And i think alabama has got a very good chance to to reach a final four What's what's the best thing. I think bobby for the the big ten teams as they're out of the big ten now and they don't have to they don't have to beat each other up and they can go take a swing at somebody else. And i think they're all gonna like that. So i wanna get into the alabama thing. You just mentioned it. They're sitting right below michigan as the two seed and jay. I'm still staggered by. I guess the following collection of words second-seeded alabama versus fifteen seeded. Rick pitino and iona. So let's take the first half of that matchup. I people know alabama obviously as a football institution the football institution. What they know about their basketball team. Yeah alabama is is really talented and really good This year in basketball. Their coach nate. Oats is a math guy. He is an analytic sky. So last year they shot ton of threes. He believes in free throws open threes and layups and And so they're not a lot of mid range shots taken But this year. They're they're excellent defensively. That may be the best part of their team is. They can really guard their long armed and athletic on the wings. They've got a player named herbert jones. who has always been a really good defender. He's six eight He's really kind of a point guard at six eight and he does everything. He's kind of a triple double type player and defensive player of the year. In the league in the sec. And the player of the year in the league And i think he makes them different. So they're legit. They could have been a one seed worthy of it but because of how good baylor gonzaga have been they were they were locks and then And then how. How good michigan wound up being and then illinois. I don't think anybody would argue with those four is number one seeds but alabama was the clear Fifth overall so the other

"To find five hundred actual bones within two hours. How would you go about that. You think does it. Count if i if i count my own bones you have to you have to. You have to lay him down. I wanna see them on a table. It gets that doesn't count in trivia time. Okay how many bones are in the human body seven. Now come on. Give me a real. This is i feel like this is relatively decibel. We'll let me let me look. I got a little bone nair money finger each of my fingers bone. Yeah yeah bones you actually. I believe the hand has more bones than any other part of the body. Feel it. So this tin yeah. Okay so i'm gonna start with tin. And then i feel like there's got to be a few there each magog mccullough twenty eight thirty feel like i got a neck bone count as one thirty i might have to in there. I'd say something like eighty seven eighty seven bones in the human body. I think. Eighty seven bunks. I think that's how many i had. I can't speak for other people i believe. Hold on. i'm going a how i'm gonna it's around two hundred. I must say it's two. oh eight. how many bones in the human body you. I don't think i have that many think it's two. Oh six to six eighty seven would be certainly interesting. I don't know if the if if we'd be podcasting if our species evolved to just eighty seven bones. But hey i feel like i don't need most of mine. What do you need all his bones for honestly. You know evolution and all that good stuff by the way. I don't want to get this off the rails and we'll get to this more in the reviews sousa quick. Tease the response to the dodo. Section of the last podcast was as enthusiastic as any topic. We've had in months and months and months. Who would have ever thought. I ordered a dodo. Bird shirt amazon. It should be here to by tomorrow night here lined up. I can't wait to get it. Says we will rise again. Which by the way. It's an extinct species so that's not how extinction works. But you know what i do like the spirit and i'm debating following with you. I had one when it was the one that i sent. It said never forget. Never ever forget it. S stupid birds needed to be a little more skeptical of the dutch. They trusted too much. They trusted too much and they got burned. Okay yes i'm with you. I would take the field over gonzaga baylor but let me make the argument about why. Maybe you shouldn't a one right now. It appears barring weird. They're going to be one season the instantly tournament. And i know that it just takes a little. You know maybe one injury here losing streak there baylor more susceptible than gonzaga to this type of stuff because the league affiliation but the the thing sometimes people forget is that only four teams can get number one in the ncaa tournament. So i assume two of them will be gonzaga bay there but it's not guaranteed but for the sake of the conversation play along. We're gonna assume that those are going to be two of the number one seat a number one seed usually wins the ncaa tournament people. Throw this out there. All the time like single elimination tournament. You never know you never know. And it's not always the best team but it is usually a number one seed trivia time. Ten of the past thirteen national champions till the past thirteen have been number one seeds in the ncaa tournament. Can you name the three. That were that one at all. They wanted all but they warned upon see. It's only happened three times in the past. Thirteen tournaments share. Outsourced this question to our audiences i answer this. I want to say by the way my blind guess since it went to sixty four teams and eighty five that the one seed wins the tournament. I'm going to say it's about forty three forty four percent of the time. I think it's less than fifty percent of the time. A one seed wins it. But you're talking about the past. Thirteen did ten of the past thirteen. So i'm about Starting in two thousand seven. When florida as a one seed won the ncaa tournament the year before so kansas. It was a one-seat. Oh nine carolina. It was a one. C twenty ten is duke. It was a one. C twenty eleven is yukon which is not a one-seat so that's one of them that's correct. They were three zero three seats. Twenty twelve's kentucky was a one seed. Thirteen was louisville. It was a one. C fourteen is yukon. It was a seven c. That's number two. Fifteen is duke. A one-seat over wisconsin. Sixteen i think is nova as a two seed winning. I think november two seed and sixteen seventeen carolina's a one eighteen. Novas one nine hundred. Virginia's one talk to me. Ding ding ding ding ding or laser. That was impressive. that'd be gone. What do you want from me. You got it exactly right and you got the seats right. Although i think i helped you with yukon was a three seat in two thousand eleven just slow to take but i was. I was on it. Don't worry i was. On florida's seven and one florida's a three and two thousand and six five is yukon. A one four is yukon a one three syracuse a three to maryland to one. One duke is a one two thousand michigan state. I think it's a one but it might be a to anyway. Go back to gonzaga. So so i'm with you. I would take the field but a once. He does normally in recent history of once. He does win the tournament way more often than not. And if you're assuming once he's gonna win it this year will then you really picking the other two one seed over gonzaga baylor. I know you're actually not doing that. But i think you get my point. I would take the phil gonzaga baylor. They have separated themselves..

"gonzaga baylor" Discussed on CBS Sports Eye On College Basketball Podcast

"Baylor. Tcu sixty seven forty nine so the zacks or now twelve and with eleven double digit wins and the bears are eleven and now with eleven double digit wins as of this moment. Gonzaga's adjusted efficiency margin plus. Thirty one point nine. Four baylor is plus thirty one point nine two and then iowa is third at plus twenty seven point two three so the difference between first and second is zero point zero two and the difference between second and third is four point six nine in other words there's almost no difference between gonzaga and baylor belongs in the conversation with those two teams right now. That's what the computers say at least norlander. Do you agree with that assessment. Or would you put another team at their level or better yet. Let me ask you this would. would you take if i offered it to you right now. The field gonzaga and baylor or the field. You would take the field no question about it if you started the tournament tomorrow. That would be weird on the safety. Catch me by surprise. I tried wake up the text messages. Probably to be like. I'd be like hey we need you. We need you on h. q. And i'm like but my my kids are running around the house right now. What's going on. They'd be like well the ncaa tournament starting. And i did freak me out. Yeah it would and but at least at least this you and i both know that if that happened and they called to. Hq you could say. I don't know if you know this but you need sixty eight teams to have an incident tournament. You've got that in your back pocket. You're getting the thing. Some people don't remember is that only four teams make the final four. I love those little. I love it absolutely love. It was this question by the way inspired by my tweet lead on saturday. Night my screengrabbed. Yes because i was gonna clown you because y because it was technically incorrect. Use said that at this moment like baylor win over. Tcu and you're like okay. Baylor has edged ahead of gonzaga in adjusted efficiency margin but gonzaga will go back in front. Once it's portland win registers and win. That went in last night. They didn't go back in front but at this moment something happened today. That made them go back and front gotcha. So it wasn't as interesting. So well. The reason i wonder i don i don't know. Was it iowa getting a big win over minnesota that flipped gonzaga's number back ahead of baylor every result in the palm universe effects. All the other standings general with the efficiency margin. 'cause gonzaga's like thirty one point nine four and baylor thirty one point nine two. That's adjusted to the rest of the sports so it depends on what teams one today. What teams lost by. How many margins. That's how that's determined at this point in the season. So you're right. That's exactly it and i didn't realize i skated out on that. I did not know that was technically not ahead. Although that doesn't surprise me. Because when i sent that i fully expect taggart was cruising. I fully expect aga- to to win big and cover. It actually did not even cover at that point at one one sixteen eight. that's not a cover I don't know this to be a fact tonight. Dropped a trivia time on you. If i knew it but it might be since loyola marymount that you had a team score north of one hundred ten and not covering a game in college basketball. That's kind of wild but so be there it is. I would take the field that would be the smart bet. If the field started to teams versus the rest of the field the higher percentage is going to be the sixty six other teams. That are in the dance as opposed to those two but it is a legitimate question here. And i do think there's a real level of separation i mean at this point. What do you want to say. Baylor's won eleven games. they've all been by double digits. they weren't Neither of these teams playing games. That really you know. Flare the national radar. It was business as usual. They remained undefeated. Joel by the way had a triple double. It was the first that this was surprising. It was the first one in program history for a gonzaga show credits who he wound up with. Twelve points. thirteen boards fourteen assists. And he's their fourth best player. It's absolutely absurd. They're again they're just crazy loaded so i would take the field i if you ask me to bet i would take the field. I wouldn't feel good about it. If you put a bracket down in front of me right now and i just had to pick one team. I was still picking saga. But if i actually had to wager money and you said okay you gotta put five hundred bones on this one way or the other. I would take the field. Because it's it's the it's the safer bet right now. But i just don't see how anyone is really just in that conversation just yet the stats barrett out and really the the results. Gp barrett out. I know michigan still undefeated. And that's a great story so far we'll see what can happen this week. All the other teams that are behind him. That are in the conversation. I was got two losses although it looked good on sunday. Nova's only lost once. It's in the middle of a pause again. We'll wait and see. Wisconsin solid We just talked about texas Tennessee certainly seems to be there. So i gotta believe you're with me here on this Not that they can't be beaten. I think we're pretty level headed when it comes to this. Of course they can be defeated. Perish but there is a real separation here and what feels different about this to me and i have not gone back and looked at this yet because i really wanted to wait another two weeks or so. I wonder if they'll win. The last time college basketball would have had a top two that separated inefficiency margin by four four and a half points or so not just like a team that separate from not just one team but just like two and a little bit of a gap there. that's clearly what we got with with the zags and bears. That are seem to be leapfrogging..

"Doing he's doing it. Well it is a incredible remarkable and inspiring store hit four threes. he did play well from beyond the arc. There on saturday hit four. Threes on seven attempts finished with sixteen points as i mentioned five texas players in double figures remy led the way with nineteen greg brown at twelve in addition to fourteen boards by the way the amac colin played. Well cajones play well and like it's a luxury for texas. This isn't what the team wants or anything like that but jericho sims log. Seventeen minutes the only had he had two points. He had three boards. He can be better than that. And i think they've got a pretty solid eight-man rotation there at ut with six kind of super reliable players for west. Virginia it's a stinging loss I thought miles mcbride could have been a little bit better. Derek culver not quite as good No oscar she bay Who by the way commuted kentucky earlier on sunday. But we'll get to that property in the podcast. But i thought no she boy in this game actually made a difference if you told me that he had been available and playing even just his baseline for this season. I actually thought west. Virginia won this game. Now it's getting a little bit of a dose of what it's going to be like without him west virginia for those who aren't ears fans. Trying to keep track your. It's lost three of his past five. It's wins have come at home against northeastern and then they stole one against oklahoma state. They've got a schedule game. Tuesday night against baylor. Just keep an eye on west. Virginia here still think it's gonna be good enough to get in the tournament but i just am not convinced. I've been this way a while with west virginia even when she was in the lineup. I'm just not quite convinced. This is a second week in love kind of team a team. That's going to wind up with a relatively respectable seat as we head in there. Maybe i'll be wrong. Maybe it will shock the world baylor on tuesday night but there's nothing to indicate that's going to happen. It gets a little bit of after that with home games against tcu and oklahoma state but just keep an eye but yes. This was the thought it was the biggest shot the biggest game the biggest takeaway on saturday and we can get to the other stuff in a second here. But i'm glad we love with it because texas for me. It's the best start for them. Since two thousand ten eleven they won their first eleven league games that season and at ten and one. it's now proven texas. I mean it. Kansas wins at west virginia. In addition to beating indiana northwestern. There's enough there. It's gonna take another loss or two or three that's gonna come but a top five defense knocking on the door. A top ten offense. This is it. This is the team. This is a team. That's good enough. Not saying it will but it is good enough. I believe with that roster if everyone can stay healthy and you continue to get production. Jones coleman raimi's really coming along. He's our best three point shooter by far. Yes certainly if you're ut fan and you've been kind of aching get back to the final four since that year we got knocked about knocked out by mellow and cues. This can certainly be that team at thought. This kind of wind goes a long way to prove that leads. The nation in quadrant one wins but texas leads the nation blood winds. They've got the neutral over indiana at kansas and a win over north carolina so they have wins over three of the biggest brands in the sport. Texas next game. Wednesday against texas tech. That is another quadrant. one opportunity. gonzaga and baylor both remained undefeated this weekend. We'll talk zags and bears next but first.

"Scary perished sunday january. Two thousand twenty. One welcome back to the cbs sports. I on college basketball podcast where we sometimes discuss campbell fighting donor birds and leaky black matt. Norlander is here with me and it was a busy but largely calm weekend in the sport number. Twenty three michigan state lost at home to unranked purdue on friday night number. Fifteen rutgers lost at home to unranked ohio state on saturday afternoon but as of this moment those are the only two ranked teams that lost to unranked teams this weekend. Though i should note we're recording this at like eight twenty five eastern on sunday night and unranked maryland is at number twelve illinois right now. That games in progress so again so pretty calm weekend all things considered but the only game between two top fifteen teams on the schedule ended up being a really good one. Final score was number. Four texas seventy two number fourteen west virginia seventy the last eleven seconds or something. Let me walk you through it so west. Virginia's up seventy sixty nine. It matthews uses at the line shooting to ten point. Eight seconds left. He misses the first. He misses the second. Greg brown grabs the rebound. Gets it to courtney ramey he blows straight by ted sherman and west virginians. Entire defense collapses. So here's courtney ramey in the lane surrounded by five years. His four team mates are all wide open beyond the art perfect spacing ramey gets in the air finds andrew johns for an in rhythm three. He buried it with one point. Eight seconds left west virginia. Didn't get off a shot on the subsequent possession so texas wins and extends its winning streak to six games. Longhorns are now ten over four zero in the big twelve. The loan loss is a single digit lost to villanova if the nc double a. tournament started today. A that would be weird and surprising but b. I believe shocking. Smarts team would be a number one seed. Come win it. Now come with a norrland earl. What's better than andrew jones. Cancer survivor bearing a game winning three pointer against a ranked opponent and this time when we should we could do surely use a few feel good stories. Andrew jones provided us one this weekend damn writing. Can i get that one more time. Shocker smart.

"Point nine zero. So there is a gap between gonzaga baylor and everybody else but there is not a gap between gonzaga and baylor and by the way baylor return from its covid nineteen pause and decanes estate by thirty one no problem so if you wanna take opportunity to apologize to terry teagle alma mater and the first lady of baylor basketball kelly drew. I'd be happy to give it to you. I'm going to hold off on that for now. Although i believe kelly drew listens to just about every episode here i will remind you that that adjusted efficiency margin is not purely based off of results so far. This season is predictive and measure. And we'll be for another. I mean i don't know what palmer is gonna do in terms of when he's only use data from n. season. But that'll be at least another month so but still i. I will remind you that. I don't care okay. By the way. I think he pulled a cfp move here. I will lose this convincingly and you go you. Go florida gators you. Just don't drop them you just you kept them in the same spot. they're bold. what about what about losing to the number one team means you're not the number three team particularly when the number fourteen loss to the same team by more points. I see what you did there. And and that is an important discrepancy by the way because like the power rankings. That they they asked me to do. They're more like. I do have recent bias with them because that's intentional. It's more like a trend list of hot list. If you will so. I will not have iowa third due to the loss but i'm not gonna drop them out of the top ten. That's not going to happen but based on resume and accomplishment and preseason expectation. I think it is reasonable because i actually did like that game could have actually been like twenty. Three twenty. Four point spread i. I could let it get away and it didn't get away. They were never going to threaten to win but they were. Let's say within shouting distance for pretty much consistently in the final seven eight minutes there and so they kept the margin respectable but they stayed social distance. they day were socially distant from gonzaga. Say socially distant gonzaga. When there's no doubt meantime kentucky dropped to one in five after saturday's seventy five sixty three lost in north carolina..

"Or positivity rate you because all that leads to as sniffles that's what people will tell you well. Hospitalizations are up to around thirteen percent over the past week. Endesa up around thirty five percent over the past week in this country. That's not something. You can be dismissive off. And beyond that as we've talked about before like my wife is in her late thirties. She got the virus and she survived but at what cost she was knocked off her feet for five. Straight days. couldn't get out of bed. She said it was the worst she's ever felt. She still cannot taste or smell. As of this minute meantime. I was talking to a division one. Men's basketball head coach this morning. Whose son is fighting covid. Nineteen right now and his son is young. So that'll be fine. Probably but his son right now is in the bed. Very very the quote was very very sick. So the people who treat the survival rate live or die like this is a pass or fail situation. Just still do not get it and that's disappointing. This game was canceled because health. Officials in indiana were concerned that a gonzaga player or baylor player might die. It was canceled or postponed called off because nobody wants a basketball game. Especially a high profile basketball game to serve as a superspreader event in a time where this virus is raging throughout our country. So i touched on that and then sort of close with this. I advocated nearly four months ago for conference only schedules in a bubble and didn't write that. And i don't bring it up now as i told you so because i recognize creating conference only bubbles is much more complicated than typing conference only bubbles or saying conference only bubbles. I get it but once schools decided they're not gonna go that pack and they're going to try to bounce around the country and play outside of a bubble will. This was always how the season was going to unfold at this moment. I believe based on your reporting norlander around twenty one percent of the game scheduled so far have been canceled. Now that means seventy nine percent are still getting played and if you want to argue that's good enough then i'm not here to argue against you can see the point. We're eleven days into the season and it's been fun so far but if you had any idea that it was going to be anything other than this you just weren't paying attention to college football. Frankly and the difficulties with trying to compete in a context sport in the middle of pandemic that is raging throughout the country. And then and then i hit file yet. There we go. So you're right. We're at about a twenty percent cancellation slash postponement rate. However you want a term that because a lot of these games that are not played on their expected day are trying to get shuffled and pushed back And this was the this is the cost by the way there are plenty of people. No shortage of people saying you shouldn't be playing college. Sports period and a pandemic But given that you need games and you need an tournament and you need bowl games too. Literally Keep keep these sports liquid and into have opportunities for people that are twelve years old. Fourteen years old sixteen years old right now to even be able to play college. Sports on scholarships to five seven years from. Now that's why they're getting played if you wanna really boil it down to it. Because i don't disagree on a certain level that playing these games in a pandemic It might not be advisable but this is being done for the mental health aspects of the student athletes. There's no doubt about it. Every every person i talked to in college athletics including players says that from physical and mental standpoint actually getting to compete go to practice playing. These games means hell of a lot there And it's being done because you need the money to be able to college athletics. We know it in the modern era. This is not 1937 anymore. So with all that being said when this all happened my first reaction was getting this game again. This season is going to be a tough needle to thread but mark few end scott drew both went on the cbs inside college basketball. Show at twelve. Thirty was always scheduled to preempt. The one o'clock tip and they were on for about five minutes and talk with bill raftery and they And they said no there they they wanna play this game. Still a few exact words were absolutely think we will. And then he added. We'll find a way to play it at some point. Scott drew reiterated that on his zoom media availabilities about an hour and a half. After those gentlemen appeared on america's most watched network an entire. There we go and talking to drew and asking him directly about this. There's a few things to keep in mind with all of this stuff one. I do think that if they can they're gonna play the game two hours ago. I thought twenty percent. Now i think if the virus doesn't literally prevent them from doing it again i'm at like ninety five percent that zag baylor will play again whether they're one wanted to when they do it we'll have to wait and see a couple of things to keep in mind. One baylor lost. Its chance to go and play in bubble ville Which by the way lost its final game. You mentioned about playing games. You know in a in a bubble and all that stuff. Nc state yukon was cancelled for today. It was the last game scheduled for bubble ville. Nc state had one player test positive. They're forcing forcing that game. Not to happen so again. Even as i wrote earlier this week. They've done the best they could and they're still. I think there's strong reason to believe that. The nc state positive came from behind arriving in connecticut. And that's how incubation periods work and that can always be very problematic But regardless this is going to be an ongoing challenge but in terms of bubble hillbilly didn't get to go so lost game against arizona state then It's rational to presume that they wanna play villanova so they lost a game against villanova and now they lost against gonzaga scott drew scheduled up in the event. He lost one or two of these games. He's now loss potentially three games against ranked opponents including two games against top five opponents. You can understand why he wants to get that in. So here's what he said if you're wondering when they could play that answer has not been given to us he said there are three or four different routes to getting there and getting there is still be determined before this gonzaga game got cancelled. Baylor was intending to send his players home for christmas. Now you can argue whether that's the right move or the wrong move into pandemic and y you know. The rates are absolutely atrocious in this country right now. They're going to be worst tomorrow. They're going to be worse a week from now and they're gonna be worse two weeks from now so if you're going to actually send players home i think regardless of the game getting cancelled perish. That's a conversation. They need to have plenty of coaches. Have told me if we send these guys home and and and then it's just a rolling three weeks of no games with us like there. That is a real terror. Among coaches and eighty s right now so drew said. They're going to have a conversation with their players. He highly respects the maturity and approach to life of all of his junior's and seniors and that's to be determined there. If they don't go home for christmas there is a window they both gonzaga and baylor have games on the twenty first in the twenty ninth of december. They have no games in between that really leaves like december twenty four th to december twenty seventh as the window. They could get it done Remains to be seen if that would even happen if it did where the game will take place. I asked drew directly. If it had to be on a neutral would they be open to home campuses. He said their preference both is absolutely still. Play the game on a neutral court. But he would not rule out playing either at gonzaga or in waco. If it came to that people need to understand that when you want to get one of these games on a neutral court and get a major television partner. It's not that it can't be done but a lot of stuff has to go into making that happen in terms of getting the tv people their trucks. They're getting everything uploaded. It is actually a real process. Oh i think they've got a chance but it's a matter of when they can do it. I also think there is a potential because drew said this that they will bump one of their non con games to make this happen and so if they're going to do that. Here's what we're looking at. If they decide to go this route on the twenty-first the fourth the four teams. That could be in the crosshairs. Here are all sub. Two fifty teams at palm right now. Gonzaga plays northwestern state on december. Twenty first home game. And then it plays dixie state which nudity one these this season. That's on december twenty. Nine baylor has games on those exact same days against arkansas. Pine bluff on december twenty one and then eight days later on the twenty night..

"On what we know right now. Here in the moment Nutshell review of what you posted. So people can read it so they can kind of get some more insight on On your thoughts on what happened saturday. Just the gist of it is sort of what i touched on before i turned it over to you. This is disappointing but understandable. It's flooding surprising. I mean we are. And i've still got people in my mentions right now. Like i just got a tweet. From pastor. Tim ninety and pastor tim ninety says only one player tested positive for gonzaga. This sounds fishy to me. It sounds like gonzaga doesn't want to play baylor. Like come on pastor. Tim ninety it only sounds fishy to you. Because you don't know what you're talking about has been on the road for like two weeks there in indianapolis longer. They've been in indianapolis all week. They're not just decided to cancel a game ninety minutes because somehow they were concerned about how they're gonna guard macy's teagan a ball screen like this is what happened in the health officials stepped in and said we're not going to allow this game to be played. It's it really is as simple as that sort of the point. I'm making the column. So i've got pastor. Tim ninety people like him in the should just played the game. And then you've got the serov survival rate people in you mentioned saying oh. The players will fine. All young people are fine. Which of course is mostly true if if you define fine by survive in not end up on a ventilator but i think sometimes people stopped paying attention to these numbers or just decided. They're not gonna care about these numbers but we have a past the point of two hundred and seventy eight thousand dead americans in the past ten months because of this virus hospitalizations in the united states over the past week are up twelve point. Eight percent deaths in the united states are up over the past week thirty five percent. So if you're somebody who's dismissive of cases or positivity rate you because all that leads to as sniffles that's what people will tell you well. Hospitalizations are up to around thirteen percent over the past week. Endesa up around thirty five percent over the past week in this country. That's not something. You can be dismissive off. And beyond that.

"It is the rare saturday edition of the eye on college basketball. Podcast and the reason is of course as you saw with the update that jumped right into your phone. Gonzaga baylor is no more. It has been postponed due to multiple covid positive tests inside gonzaga's program. So can this game get made up between the schools. They both wanted to happen. When might that happen. I was able to interact with scott drew earlier on saturday. So we're gonna get to our reactions and the other major cancelation from saturday that you might have overlooked emergency. Podcast starts right now. Scary saturday december fifth. Two thousand twenty. Welcome back to the cbs sports. I own college basketball podcast where we sometimes discuss camel fighting an leaky black matt. Norlander is here with me and super disappointing news in the world of college basketball by now. You've likely heard. But if not i regret to inform you that you maslow's game with bryant. That was scheduled for saturday has been postponed. The river hawks were favored to snap their three game. Losing streak and put a smile on elvis presley's face loyal listeners of this podcast obviously know the story by now. Nobody else does. But if you're subscribe at the college basketball pockets you're well versed on how the king left to blow for law in one thousand nine hundred eighty three to pursue a formal education while they're just absolutely fell in love with the river. Hawks on elvis did not live long enough to experience. Donde set years but still his passion for river hawks basketball. It never waned so it was rough news. When it was announced on saturday that umass low bryant is off and then elsewhere in the sport the showdown between number one gonzaga in number two baylor also called off on saturday. According to a statement released by both schools gonzaga player in somebody else zags traveling party tested positive for covid nineteen so what was going to be. The forty third matchup in college basketball history between the teams ranked number one and number two in the people will instead go down as the first number one versus number two showdown in college basketball history to be called off because of a global pandemic. It's disappointing but understandable it's deflating but unsurprising so norlander. Let's start here. we were both about. I dunno seventy minutes from jumping on. Cbs sports hq to preview saga. Baylor when it was called off. We both agree. It was the right and smart thing to do but we can also agree it. Sucks this sucks right. it does and i'm gonna get to that in a second first of all. I love the dead right through it. This is also neglected to mention. You know it's the first ever meeting between umass lowell. Brian so we we've never had number one gonzaga versus number two baylor. And we've never had umass lowell versus brian. That is still the case a light on that. We lost a lot on this saturday. Moment of silence please. Okay thoughts with the with the river hawks. The bulldogs there Yeah this was so we. We were getting ready to go on. Hq i get a text from an unexpected source. That says scoop for you. Gonzaga ballard played. And i'm thinking this close really then. I said i need to know who told you this. I can't tell you so. I sent another text. That person indeed confirmed with me. And i guess i got it right when they announced it. I was told that the team's new at about about ninety minutes. Maybe two hours before tip that it was not going to get played. I was also told that gonzaga's tests results came back. Friday night And that there was not a subsequent test with with all of that There's a few things i wanted to discuss with your gp on this relatively quick emergency pod for everyone. Listening on saturday Thanks for joining us in. Yeah we're done that. We didn't get to see this game The biggest question here Has got your a presser afterward. I asked him about this directly. But this is the same. Exact scenario gonzaga found itself in when it was in florida It it had a it had a staff member or a non player test positive and then had a player test positive. What we don't know yet what we may not ever know Mark few did not have a zoom presser the way that scattered. So maybe this'll come later. I don't know we don't know if it's the same people or not. Is it different. People you know was was this a case of of gonzaga i would presume. It is actually different. People i would. I would assume it's gotta be a different person as well because the initial person was jillian. Straw reportedly right and he would have been isolated from everybody since that moment and so the him testing positive again. I do not believe would have triggered this type of reaction. I agree with you and so with all of that. Said so ashley hodge. hogan hope. I have her name browns correctly. She works for three sixty five which is a local outlet dedicated to covering baylor sports and this was her report that i asked drew about in the presser. She quote word from india's that both gonzaga and baylor wanted to play this game but the health department shutdown baylor players are crushed. Had the cancellation happened. Yesterday baylor had an alternate opponent lined up and quote a couple of things on this. I think that there is a possibility that this game was in florida. It would've been played it because the the health officials were ultimately the ones that. We're not gonna let this go down. And then the teams got together and and said okay. that's fine. i ask got drew directly. If that report was accurate. He did not he did. He did not answer the question directly. He did not that report. He also did not deny that report. But it stands to reason. You know these coaches these players really really wanna play the game but the but the right. Gp we agree that the right decision was was absolutely made here Before i toss it back to you. I want to You know re emphasize what the schools put out jointly Because i thought for all that you know for as much of a bummer that this was this was an important statement that was made by drew mark few disappointed not to be able to play one of the most anticipated games of the season but we are following the vice public health officials and then later in that statement they say there are much greater issues in this world and not being able to play basketball game. So we're going to continue praying for everyone who's been affected by this pandemic. That's the statement that you put out there. Even if privately. And i'm not saying this was the case but according to the report this was the case even if privately scott drew in mark few thought we really wanna play this game Cooler heads prevail. This is the decision you need. Make an. I don't think it's a coincidence that it was made in this venue. Oh by the way with dan. Gavitt who runs the tournament on site just wants zag had positives that popped friday night there. They were just not gonna play. This game wants to have this happen again. After having it happened originally against kansas and then against in florida well i mean. Let's speak with what we know. Gonzaga has already agreed to play a game after a player test positive and was in the locker room mask celeb maskless celebrating after that game. So the idea that a positive one positive test on the team would be the thing. That makes gonzaga go. We can't do this. That's not backed up by gonzaga decided to do last week. So listen i'm hearing out here to nitpick a statement. But i think you're right if health officials would have allowed this game too. I can't speak for baylor. But if health officials were allowed this game to be played it stands to reason that gonzaga would have been willing to play at if based on nothing other than the decision. Gonzaga has already made at one point in the season. I agree with you. Yeah and this is listen. This was this is definitely a major blow. I mean this is the premier game in college basketball this this weekend. It's the premier game of college sports There's two college football all it will have plenty of of watch matchups in byu versus coastal carolina. I actually think it has has a march madness appeal to it This is one versus two. And so we lose it. And it's and it's a. It's a major downer there Gp has a column up that. I will link in the description of this podcast episode. If you'd like to read it he he reacted off of that Before we get to them playing again Baylor and offer up some details on what we know right now. Here in the moment Nutshell review of what you posted. So people can read it so they can kind of get some more insight on On your thoughts on what happened saturday..
