So i thought ohio state was just going to run them off the floor. That was that was my inkling. So i'll state avoid the trap game at penn state tonight Which host eat. I swear to god happy. Valley is the hardest place in the big ten to play like it. It doesn't matter the circumstances trap game you could have no. You could be the only game of the month and it's still a trap game. I hate playing at penn state. I hate every time. We play penn state and we won by ten and we have so. I feeling really good about us. But then we talked to john beeline. He's he's feeling good about michigan. So i'm going to give michigan a little more credit than what i originally wanted to give them. And i'm going to say how states wins What's a little closer than i initially thought i say. Ohio state eighty one michigan seventeen. Yeah well okay. That sounds like a reasonable score to me Yeah i think on this show. We decided for our picks. We're not gonna do lines. We're not going to give you this we. We don't care about big states win though we're going to take money line. Picks straight up who we think so. I'm gonna take the michigan wolverines. I don't know why. I i really don't know why i like this michigan team. I watched them play a lot. I have tried to poke holes in their team. But i do love juwan. Howard i i have I enjoy the way that he hands himself. I love shaun. D brown as i've told you off air and And i won't be upset if they lose this game. Because i think they need to lose to kind of like i like i said you don't wanna be the front runner in the regular season in the big ten. You want to be sitting back here just waiting for your time. Like linoleum and i. I'm excited to search twitter to search the name kalayaan on sunday. Just read all the michigan fans. Losing their mind. Y'all hundred dickinson's launch. I'm excited for that. All right You kinda villanova ou book nights back yes at villanova villanova and villanova is like. I feel like you ain't. He drops them to tier three. So there you know sorta kind of fallen out of favor a little bit. And this is right when i jump on. J ray j right is not when people aren't looking at their team when they're talking about you know jeremie robinson earl and what's going on with his campaign and that sort of stuff. I'm going to take villanova. I like yukon yukon to make running march marching villanova's well nothing against yukon I'm not. I'm not jumping on the bandwagon until the calendar returns to march. And then i'm putting all the chips in the middle and say take me home time james. It's time but we got into tournament. But i think is gonna win a picking villanova's all the third one. We want to pick a west virginia texas. I you see that one. This is a really tough one i am. Texas was a final fourteen for me and the christmas came and cova came for them and chaka had to be. Al was find some stuff tough stuff. He said he wasn't feeling great. So this texas team has been a roller coaster. I have had a tough time trying to you. Know kinda sift through who they really are. But when i look at my gut and look in my heart. I liked the long horn. So i'm going to take texas. Is that home. West virginia has been playing really good. I don't want to disrespect west virginia. I like them when it comes to tournament time but for some reason i like texas in this game. I hate texas in the next game against kansas childlike them against virginia west. Virginia and i hate them against kansas. So you say you don't wanna disrespect west virginia. I'm more about action than talk in west. Virginia i wanna i wanna not disrespect so much i think west. Virginia's gonna win. I think at this point the season west. Virginia's a better team. Unfortunately yeah and i do. I was i was on destroyed myself in texas back. Yeah i'm trying to texas. I haven't you know it's like i was with i. I met texas where i was with. I was like. I'm not ready to to panic. I'm not ready to whatever blake. I'm in the shower tate.

"For to be a fun season with wisconsin and i will be in good illinois's good as we were hoping they would at the start of the year but we didn't know that when we looked at the big ten that were you know there's going to be one. Txz basically fourteen legit and wisconsin was the. Now there's gonna be one team that fell this is how has a michigan took their spot in reality. Michigan bumped up and then they were going as beziers another team that bumped up or just. Don't wanna kidney dude. Michigan took their spot. We'll see about that on sunday. The other thought he would make a rivalry you know. It needs to be a basketball rivalry. I don't feel it's getting closer chris. Chris oldman put out a chris. Oldman has made so our football team. The house eight whenever he beat michigan. You get like these gold pant they make these necklaces. And then you put these little gold like charms. I don't know what you would call it. Little like pandora. Yes or but it's like a little medallion that you just hang on your thing necklace. God i don't know much about jewelry terms. Obviously but they're gold pants. And that's been a tradition in austin nice going back to the seventeen hundreds. When you beat michigan you go. Pats so chris oldman has decided to start giving out gold. Jerseys i guess is the basketball like they're basically trying to make it a thing. Like if you beat michigan when you get your. I don't know so he's trying to he's trying to like it's a little artificial but a lot of rivalries are started yet got to i think like hopman in general like holtman verse juwan howard is such a good mix of styles and coaches and like. Yeah they they officer going to have a reverence and respect for each other. And they're also great in game coaches. Yeah it is a good fit and it's the best thing about beeline today and we didn't even really talk to him about it. But the fact that you have had and be line kinda have that rivalry and get into this point and then now you've passed the torch of these other guys who were going to take. The next never never really works out. Where the legend whoever follows the legend never almost never works out and right. Now it's very early. We should say frizzell mun has still i. I love him to death. I will defend him to death but we should. If i'm being fair in march he hasn't made a sweet sixteen or i'll stay drawn. Howard hasn't even made a tournament because last year there wasn't a tournament a we we. We started to see that. But as of right now where we're sitting it's pretty insane. Housing michigan both had the best coaches. They've ever had the programs history. Both of them leave around the same time because of replacement with their so far giving that they're going to be every bit as good to put it in my terms. They're on the rails back to the other. The big iowa wisconsin. I had this question for you. So what is it about luca garza. Who's going to win national player there. He is just just Embracing america just accept it. I guess you don't have to embrace it but accept it. It's going to happen whether you want it to happen or not. Luca garza will be your national player of the year. This year Why why is there such an inclination to fight against that. Y i mean we victim to last year that obi top dunk between his legs and i was like okay and then guy not lavar this guy and then even tonight i as. I'm watching wisconsin iowa. I was trying to stir the pot a little bit. And i tweeted a poll. And i said look who's going to be better remembered. Franken garza and part of the wisconsin like vitriol. The fans. they got fired up about it. Or because they were watching luca garza beat their teams brazen As i as. I tweeted that out but there does seem to be like this the backlash of lagaras like get. Are you see. this is insulting. I'm like i probably frank kaminsky but it's not really salting is like luca guards as the status put it. It's it's insane. It's i wouldn't say we've never seen numbers he puts up lake. It's wild the how good he is. How much attention. He demands every single scouting report Every team plays iowa. They must spend eighty percent of their scouting on luca. Garza still putting up these numbers and yet there's there's like this backlash of of him being boring of him. Wha what do you think's going on here today. I think it's fatigue. And i think it's you know like you said. Last year we all watched luca garza dominate over here we watched you know another guy dominate with flash and that was top and so we all had a guilt or whatever you wanna call it that lingered as we got into the off season. You and i and we did our previews. I think i pretty much said unless barring something crazy luca garza will instead we owe you straight up like that was the that thing. That's been the cinnamon of the the ap of espn bleacher report. A tie date whatever you wanna put pick out and say like. What is your national player of the year. It's all garza. He's run away with the dick tau tonight told us that that he had. He's already running close. But if you know but if you look at like drew timmy. Shooting the same percent from the three point line. You know drew timmy. Like there could be argued. That drew timmy could be national player of the year. You know what i mean. And i can hear it but i'm just saying this as an example right in the world of college basketball player i assume you could pick it as the one now. Here's the one that we ride. Jared bowler. Here's the one we ride. But at the end of the day lagaras a has been so consistently great and zo consistently so phenomenal beyond what we expected. You told me he's gonna have seven thirty point games like i wouldn't have thought that guarantee that he got astral player of the year with that but we're fatigue by we're not accepting it as this amazing thing because it doesn't blow your mind in fact them i look at. The state is very tyler. Hands broke look at the stat sheet. And i'm like eight and seven. Yeah yeah like. I thought he had like sixteen ten. You know but he just the numbers of the stats. There he is involved in everything is on the floor but it just it like like washes over you. But he's boring. He's not like the idea of big man has got the moves like he's gotten an play..

"Me ask. A question is north carolina of football basketball in close coach. Mack brown's getting as close. I'm fine with it. i might take it up. I'm okay with it. Sam alpher eisman gotcha back brown job code. Coach can run for office with the answers like that we. We've been dancing around coach so a few years ago this is. I'm going to give you a little back story so when we started this show we had a young man who was a basketball player. He reached out to us said he was a senior about to joe about to have a senior season on a basketball team and he wanted some help because he might eventually get into sports meet and he wanted to just kind of pick my brain and i talked to him and gave him some some advice. Whatever and said. I like the guy. I'm gonna watch him this year that that kid's name was duncan robinson and so take a very excited because in the twenty eighteen. Season duncan robinson to our knowledge. He was the first ever player who was actively playing college basketball. Who listen to our show. So we got really excited about we. Were going to follow them all year and somewhere along the line that season i think it was around january you decided to not start duncan robinson you decided to put him on the bitch and and start a freshman isaiah livers who is averaging about three points. A game This enraged tate night. We're we're not. we're not happy about. It was about us coach her that he was listening to us so mad. We're like who is this isaiah livers kid. What's going on. So duncan graduates. He's obviously become the best shooter in the nba. He's unbelievable he's gonna make all star teams. It's just a matter of time. Uh so i guess my question coach is would you like to apologize to the listeners. Debate ni- like what what happened. What was going on there. Here's the true story about it. Here's a true story is that we just had this on the big ten network that over the eight games against high level player. I this is an amazing stat. Over the eight verse. Eight games that years it. He was shooting less than twenty percent from three less than twenty percent so he was pressing himself. He was really not you he was. He was like not hunting shots. He was questioned everything that he was out there and so we just said to him. He's mad at himself. I'd rather have him to get mad at me and so we made that foot actually played it just as many minutes and he shot. Listen to this forty one percent the rest of the year forty one percent from three so sometimes you just gotta make the anyways the sixth man of the year of the of the year in the league and we went to the final two so it worked out all right for everybody. So i'm sorry. It made you mad. But sometimes coaches gotta improve their team and him coming off. The bench became a major reason why we are so good that year dan i got nothing wasn't expecting. I was expecting them to have numbers. Like that. sounds like you're right in coach. You happen to be in this position right now. At least from our vantage point where you are sort of you know able to look in you know from your vantage point. Check in on a lot of different programs obviously had their relationship with michigan. Still but you can survey the college basketball landscape and you know we're not going to ask anything specific about you. Know your plans in the future but just in general how nice is it is just kinda take a seat back in and watch all these different teams and out play styles that you like or you know figuring out you know kind of what you may see for the future of college basketball in general. I really enjoyed this. I've i've said several people on just. I'm sabbatical when i get back to coach it or not that's an whole nother story but i'm gonna sabbatical. This has been a great time for to just sit back here. Here's what you probably need to know. Any coach in the big ten or any coach anywhere in the country. I guarantee you roy. Williams not on a saturday at home watching a big ten game that he's not gonna play. He's he's getting ready for his next. Acc game we don't watch other other conferences. We just and that's why conferences get so much alike in style. We just watch each other on video over and over again so you don't really get the study now. I've been able to do some of that or just really look back and i've done three nebraska games and i feel like i really know fred hoiberg right now. What he's trying to accomplish that. Minnesota penn state. I'm just watching these things and it's really unique That i can do this and really learn. I know i've improved as a coach in this offseason without question. So you say you like it now but let's fast forward to this spring when guys start getting fired and john lines name is coming up for literally every single job in the country and and people are throwing out your is true. Because you're the hottest name the country every program while jumpy live you prepared for that coach like in all honesty. You're your phone's going to be blown up. Whether it's athletic directors like newspaper guys are like we heard this rumor that this booster we were tracking. Your flowers are you prepared for flight. Be tracking every move. John makes from april till like the march. April may window are. Are you ready for that. Like you can't relax very bird relaxed right now. Just trying to do the best. I can do the best. I do to beat to be a guy like you to all these twitter followers great resource for basketball sort of a guy. That really the smartest guy in the room like guys. That's what i want to be like really be able to say all these very very intelligent thing about the game coach i got..

"Eli michigan and ohio. State this weekend. The game of the year in college basketball. I obviously spend a lot of time talking about ohio state on this program. I'm very proud of my alma mater. we don't get the perspective much of those degenerates up in arbor so we figured what better man to give us an idea of. What's going on in michigan. The greatest pro the greatest coach in program history john. Beeline is joining us now. On the program coach first of all. Where are you where where. Where's life taking you these days where you living. We see the the michigan basketball's behind you but yeah where where are you right now in ann arbor. We never sold our house. When i went to cleveland we are we. Were going to wait a little bit to buy a house and we know when we had a career change we just sorta came back here and reload ann arbor. So it it's good. We're still My granddaughter's here children or my daughter's here with my granddaughter and her and my two grandsons. So good here in ann arbor michigan man through and through a coach. I gotta start here so juwan howard obviously takes over for you has taken what you've built put his own spin on it in his had. Just as much excess. Certainly to this point. I mean obviously we got to give him time to make march runs and final fours like you did but So far what we're seeing from drawn howard is i'm sure he has your stamp of approval and Can you just give us an idea of you've done this before. You've you've obviously taken over as a coach different programs. How hard is this. What is the most impressive thing about this. Because the track record of guys taking over for legends and you are a legend. I won't hesitate to say that the track record of guys taking over for legends and college basketball is not great. So what has been the most impressive thing from your perspective. On which one howard's done this your i think he's got to know john for many years. He was one of the many alums that reached out to me. And i think what he's he's been able to blend really was listened. It ain't broken here. We don't have to fix olot. What i wanna put my own identity added to. And he's done that. I mean watcher watching the games. There's some things that he did that. Those guys were really accustomed to with us. And then he's put some great wrinkles in it and really a wonderful job. So i i love his demeanor on the sideline i love the staff. He kept what gets not only saudi washington but strength. Straight staff and everything. He's done a great job of blending. What we really believed in putting his own identity in there and coach you still have players that are on this michigan team currently like isaiah livers that you obviously coached. It went to a final four with than you know some of these players. So how much of a connection do you have just being an ann arbor and seeing these players that you know so well and they're still thriving under john howard and it seems like you're tied to the program still which is really cool. Well i think it's a very slippery slope a little bit because you when you leave a program you. They don't need to coaches in their ear. Make sure that. I text them after some really good games. Maybe when they need a pick me up when they went when they went through the pandemic pause i hit a couple of them. But i also this team now and this is not my team anymore and i wanna make sure that they hear that that those those voices The really important once by your eyes. Ahah livers and ally brooks and austin davis and then the juniors brandon johns and. Then you know i've known wagner. No sense he was in ninth grader. And so he's he's done a great job there and some of the other kids. We recruited his well. That are there right now. John is take them in or finish the job recruiting and has turned out to be a great team especially when he added the to seniors The to transfer who were just hungry when they've done a great job with that coach. We were talking off air before we we started on the show. Obviously that the ohio state michigan rivalry in basketball is very different than what it is in football and football. The hatred is there. The the it doesn't matter who's one last year. How many in a row. When they're playing this year the at each other's throats and we were. We were discussing like when you took over michigan. My it was my sophomore year on on the team. And i don't remember ever like really thinking michigan was a rival and i don't say that an a taunting way we just kinda. We had a good thing going with our program. You guys were trying to figure it out and it wasn't until i kind of the trey burke. Nick staus kaz era of of michigan. That you guys were great. Ohio state is great. Obviously chris holtman done the same want howard as which has taken over and made a thing of his own so I guess my question is. How do you perceive the michigan ohio state rivalry in basketball because we know michigan state. Is your true rival in basketball. Select what is what is your sense on where the rivalry was when you were there where it is now where you think it's going that sort of thing. I just think it's tough. They have a rivalry. Like you have in football when you could play him three times in a year and it still doesn't mean you can lose three times in a year and still win the national championship so different dynamic to it guarantee this is that the The fans i are fans up here in ann arbor when when state comes in the building. There's no love lost there. And i never felt any love in columbus not one time so i think our fans get it but it's not with football is really determined your success that season and it it does not determine that so. We're playing michigan state every year twice mao. And that's that's that's part of the schedule. We're not doing that with ohio. State game still means a lot because they're great programs without question. I in coach. How is it. Because titus. And i wanted the stupid things that we do on our show. We like to label schools. Either a football school or basketball school. And obviously you know you know the rivalry. We know the history between michigan and ohio state football. But you know like titus mentioned. I mean you got the thad matta era. There's a lot of final fours and a lot of good basketball there. Then you guys in two thousand thirteen. You're right there on the precipice twenty eighteen. We had a great time with that. Run as well coach. So we're just going to ask. The question is michigan as michigan. A basketball school at this point. I think so. Ask nagging me to answer michigan. Mich- michigan is the greatest university in the world. Athletic department is second to none and that goes with every single sport. So that's that's the answer. I'm gonna give you every time. Hey let.

"We see the originator. But you're also frost number four on my power rankings. Unlv eight and eleven also in the mountain west. Not also the mound cares. It's all the same. They're seventh in the mountain west. Five and seven and the reason i it's time to call them out call at the rebels is because we saw them in maui in maui north carolina And i the first glimpse of north carolina. This season That we saw him. I was ed north carolina's first game. It was north carolina. First game the first game i the first like real their first game. Unlv jumps out to a thirteen. Nothing lead they're working looking you. And i'm saying i think i am going to have to leave granted. It didn't go well after that. You didn't that moment. Time the first six minutes you saw the glimpse next day. They're playing alabama to an alabama team. That now is in going to be a two seed tier three three t indicates they are. They are up like like the first twenty six minutes. We'll say twenty five minutes. I wrote that twenty six. I went back and looked the first twenty six minutes in this game. It was like. Lv was competitive winning. I think i think the game was tied with like thirteen or fourteen minutes left and ultimately alabama ended up winning by ten or so. But the point is they're competitive with a with a team of alabama's stature and it's just been a disastrous since and it's time to call you know because i remember thinking like. Unlv might you know if you told me then fast forward. Unlv is is knocking on the door for tournament. It'd be like yeah. That makes a lotta sense from what i've seen from them so far. Maybe they put it together not the case horrible so unlv frauds. Some guys like caleb grill was the one. I was trying to look up. There was some guard on their team. Bryan hamilton. So the big Eight and eleven prods. All right number three on the fraud. Power rankings dan peters. They had chris beard just thinking about that they did. They had beard number. Three is my former college roommate. Peter's assistant coach zona and got the pauley pavilion tonight. Texted me a picture of you. And i are cardboard cutouts This was like a half an hour before tip off. And he said really with like four question marks. He felt betrayed. Actually were there. We were there tonight. Era dumbfounded every even last year after the game. We're like we're in the pauley pavilion area over them. Yes danny we're yes. We're here at the game removed from the i told daddy i'll say i said. Ucla watching a lot of ucla. This year. I know you probably haven't nam scouting you did on these guys. They have not been playing particularly well even when they win. They don't play particularly well. Obviously not a lot based on what. I thought texted a before he was like. He's like yeah we we should be okay. He didn't say they're gonna eat. It wasn't like we're gonna win. But he's like yeah you know i. I'm not worried yeah. i'm trying. I'm trying to get data too much trouble here. But he was like. We're gonna play hard. i like. I like my team. I like my teams what he said you know. And you're team sucks. We'll take your team sucks. Danny called colin me. Personally you deserve that so it. We should point out danny. During the montage for shawn miller being thrown out of the game last year. You're you're shy. You got a nice handshake and adapt up on the way out. From shaw miller's. No i'm not i. We'll talk a lot of shit about the peers. Because i know there's no world you could peop everyone listening. Could send him the link to the show and be like yo tied has killed you. He was just ripping shreds. Won't there's nothing that could have had to listen to this show. He's like okay all right moving on top to. Here's it's juicy. here's i i have. I have established a baylor and gonzaga in the fraud. power rankings. In the pac twelve number two idaho eighteen we talked about the gave up a three. The buzzer gets idaho state to to to send it to overtime. They almost had a win. They let it slip through their fingers and then tonight they were smacked by portland state. They've now dropped own eighteen They were supposed to zag by the way december fourteen. Th those two schools are kind of next to each other. 'cause idaho's on the the west part of idaho an hour and a half away. There were supposed to play this year. can you imagine. Can you imagine if that game happened. Integral wins by one hundred in my head. I see a picture of cork like chamberlain. Up on so idaho get it together. Win a game finally arizona state. They have they've had number one locked up. They're going to them. The rest of the season arizona state seventeen lost by eighteen at usc on wednesday. They have not. This will blow your mind. Eight the arizona state sun devils. This season have not won a game by double digits the entire season. they're seven to ten. None of those seven wins. Were at no point that they put it together all that talent. They have no point on one like playing garbage teams to cows of the world and no point to draw come together and they like one by fifteen They've been won by more than nine all season. I would say this bobby hurley. Going into the season he had all the hype in the world and he won the offseason he wanted. He did the the the coach k. Calipari like we get the recruits. We get the hype. We're ready to go. You think we're already from team chip. Based on that we have here and it's a total dud and it's one of those things where maybe bobby hurley has j. right you know moment of. I don't need five stars. I need four plus players guys. That are donovan. mitchell can then hopefully let them blossom into their full form. And i see that with this team you know. Obviously they have remained. Martin martin kinda gives you the brad vibes. You know. Brad davis vibes it just to is too far. We've hit peak point. We're now on the backside of the slide. You know you're not the preseason player of the year. And all the hype. I feel bad for them right. And i think bobby hurley needs a tough team. This is not that team. So the change in philosophy your number one on the fraud power. yes yeah. that's that's so. I i'll put all say this if arizona state can get a winning record a bump them down from number one you gotta you gotta get a winning record. They're seven and ten right now. So if i do if i am a team in the northeast on the east coast and i am looking for coach. You know even like georgia tech. I would call. Bobby hurley georgia. Tech's not looking for coach gallon. He got coach. I guess something speaking of speaking of programs. That might be looking for a coach. Let's talk to a guy who's going to be asked to coach a lot of teams. I have a feeling who's very much available. Yes he's doing stuff for big ten network that's why we have modern. He's a colleague of ours technically but he's also coach. His name is john. Beeline we talked to him about michigan house. All this stuff.

How every guy can go between his legs now. Every dunker can go between their legs. Get any of them. Go between the. I mean don. I'm saying as a hater. Because i can't obviously nobody you're right it's kind of like the henze like like shammgod and some of these younger. I remember i watched a bash intel fair play and i know people are like really well like. I watched him dribble a basketball. Do all these heavy moves in. La man saying and so now. I feel like it's almost every guard i watch has. Yeah gary similar package guys. Going between the lake going between the legs whatever dunk contest was the you'd you felt like you. You saw men touchdown on mars. Well that's why on james's smartest thing he ever did was never the dunk contest because it is. It is too hard to impress that. We've seen to impress now tate. You're gonna look back. You watch the dominique michael. Jordan duncan boring. Zach levine and aaron gordon. I don't care about that. I care because it's like i know the guys that are doing it but like the dogs themselves no boring. Get it out of my face. What was say. Oh he committed but he committed to ucla. A steve alford coach. So this is the second so this does this count as two five star commitments for ucla. Class of twenty twenty. Wow he committed decommitted and see is from committee is he competent magic. I don't know okay. Sierra canyon oh hello. So he's probably he's probably magic. Have you seen the. This is a quick aside west. Coast basketball though. This is still packed with update. Have you seen the trailer for the sierra canyon team. Have you seen this ever trailer series coming out on about sierra canyon and like the main crux of the dot. You have to see how the main crux and the thing is like. You know you're twenty minutes and they're playing all these songs like gang gang gang and brownies right there. And he goes. What's up on brian. Goes real name lebron though and then we should review. What does it do. We just put this. Big screen does show good sites theater just literally the line real name. Lebron though so good gang gang gang this dunkin oliver amari bailey committed. Ucla with a tipton. Edit state they tipton edits okay. Look what was i. Don't know what's what's twitter. Tipton at tipton edits but there was a picture. Shout tip tonight. There's a picture of billion under the hollywood sign. shout out the creative direction of tipton edits that they dislike. Yeah that's right. Yeah hollywood like westwood. Hollywood are very a very far drive. I love it so mari bailey. Welcome to hollywood. Yes definitely the exact same thing is westwood What else. I got a boise state. Be utah staying off the fraud. Power rankings boise. State is now in first place in the mountain. West apologies indicates. I can't believe i regarded you a. There's a moment in time where boise state deserve. I'm so not that impressed with that. Win by boise state will say you swoops in the first place in the mountain with okay matter a little bit. You can't do any better than that. Should have a blue court. I mean i don't know if they do like the they gotta do something. I need to do that stamp. Finally i love just assuming he's a cal trans to shut him out. Sixteen points against indiana and I think he's my favorite player on now that he's the best player but i think yeah favorite player. He didn't do much tonight against doesn't really. How status jerry. Del that brings us to the the final thing we're going to fraud power rankings. And then we'll talk to john lennon So yeah did that the no need to set it up. You guys know how the fraud power out these are. These are your pac twelve fraud. Power rankings at number five tate. We start with the saint. Mary's gaels we just watch destroy saint. Mary's they're eleven and seven on the season they were picked. Third the wc behind gonzaga and byu. So if if all played out like it was supposed to gonzaga. Byu up to now would make saint. Mary's it win the wtc tournament. Not so fast there currently in next to last place the only team. They're better than in the standard right. Now is portland. who just fired tear reporter. They're so bad that they fired their coach midseason And yeah that's it. So i'd saint saint mary's we watch them play gonzaga tonight and I think it ended up being kind of close. I think they lost by like twenty or something was all but we were watching the game. They could have won by sixty. Could they could've won by seventy. There's not the only reason saint. Mary's lost by twenty is because it gets aga's mercy and i just want to point a. It's a bummer. Because i i have been to a game at saint. Mary's moraga california i. This was when i lived in ohio. And i flew across the country to go to the zagazig. Mary's game. It was one of the wild experiences of my life to be in that little sweat. Box of a two thousand seventeen twenty sixteen. this was. Yeah man. I forget it was it was a it was a grantland. I did. grandma's yes. Oh wait before. Twenty thirteen ringer paid for by a score. What i was asking. I remember watching. The gonzaga saint mary's rivalry at taking it in and gonzaga of winning. I think but. I thought like man. This is this is. This is every bit as good as it's supposed to be. Whatever the point is. I know saint. Mary's wasn't supposed to be gonzaga. Might this might be one of the best college basketball teams. Have you ever seen time. We'll tell we're we're where we on that one. So i didn't expect saint mary's to win this blake. Come on if we this was it was. It was a sad scene. That's all it say. Watching this game and i was sad scene so you get number five on my fraud. Powering me ms jock. Lyndale me list You know missed the pass era of saint mary's basketball but i think that they will be back and the thing that really about saint mary's was they had this corner where was like the ad the international guys that were coming in there and it feels like mark few gonzaga they had. They had slow ball. I mean been a ball. Randy bennett used to be the ball slowdown. It said i'll take that from you. Thank you the identity of saint. Mary's has been stolen so we understand it..

"All right i've got a ton of stats I want to get to later. I i'm also doing a fraud. Power rankings. i have that lineup. Because boy they were. There are a lot of frauds as it turns out but maybe we should talk about some of these games. Pac twelve games we saw the best game was probably oregon. Colorado not not a lot of shots being made in this game as it turns out like you said it's too tournament teams and it's to expect to see in march and it's two teams that if you want to get familiar with west coast basketball internment basketball teams. That could actually contend. This was a nice entry point into the season. Oreo a team that a lot of people picked to be the the premier team in the pack twelve for the season. They haven't been that. It's been usc but they're still there. They're still a solid enough. Could be on the right night. And that's that's the joy. Petrovsky oregon oregon takes care of business at home against colorado eight eighteen and seven Oregon a this. This is the money so i. i can't remember if i put oregon on my fraud. Power rankings last week. The i definitely had them. I think the two weeks ago who weeks ago. I i had the fraud. Power rankings typed out. But i don't think we did it on the show. I think we didn't have time and Oregon was definitely on the list. Because i had questions about if you looked at like what organ was doing outside of home. And i know that that doesn't matter as much this year because home courted road. Like what does that even mean like. It's it's very. It's all very confused. And they all feel like neutral kind of but at the same time. I can make a case either way. Let's put it that way. Like i was trying to suss this out. Figure this out they sweep the arizona schools and then they come in to be colorado. I think colorado is firmly in the tournament right. They just lost a california though. They lost to cal who is not good. No cal is very very bad in colorado. Just lost to cal then they turn around and the friends of the home. The coach at cal right now is not liking jones. It's marvelous yeah. Exactly that's what that's how far cal is right now. The coach is jason kidd. Say like every time you're talking about cal's coach until it's jason kidd. Just say it's not jason kidd back to where we're talking about a pack twelve it so oregon. I had some doubts. I wasn't. I wasn't a hater. I wasn't i wasn't dipping my toes in hater waters. I was just in the way. See waters i was in the wait and see wait. I was you know you're supposed to like shower before you get in the pool on the side. I was in the shower. I was showering getting ready to go into the hater orders. Right track album. The sign up there to public pools one shower before you get into if you've had in the last six months we've all check this who made this So i'm shower getting ready to jump in short oregon. I i'm excited to officially announce i am not going to my toes in that pool. I'm not. I'm not a hater. I i'm not a believer. But like oregon. You're good you're good team. I think oregon can win some games and then say tournament. I believe i'm a believer okay. Drew like i like the dana altman you know. He came on our show. He was very straight with us kind of told us that he was excited about. This team had a little bit of you know reservations. What they may be. but i think that they're filling out as the has gone on. And then if you look at the pac twelve. We had six teams that were supposed to get in the tournament last year. That was the best that they had had about five or six years but it was the best win percentage that they had in the conference you know in six years. I believe as well so that was a big moment. They don't have the tournament. You know we all know what happens in two thousand twenty this year. They have five teams right now as we go so. Us one hundred percents could eventually get up to like a three seat pro. We'll keep it in la then ucla's la's gonna definitely be oregon. Who just mentioned is going to be. Oregon is like they're they're going to be in but not as secure as the first tour in and it might be the first one hundred percent one hundred percent. Ucla a eighty-five. i'd say eighty six but okay then yeah oregon than colorado. Yeah and then. The fifth one a stanford stanford is and. That's the one that you mentioned neutral games. Because i think the big thing that stanford sort of hanging their hat on as we weren't able to play home games so we had to go to asheville north carolina. We had to hole up in santa cruz and played the warriors facility so we play a lot a neutral games and it's actually helping them with their resume because when they look at the net raking and then they put all the pieces together they're saying stanford hasn't played many home games. Let's give them the boost. So those are five teams if your Pac twelve west coast baseball fan of you need five teams locking on those five. So that's where the leyland stanford smoked washington tonight Yup this uniform by the way zip washington. We talked about it. They they were. There's some right. I've made this point before. I think i was talking about arizona state The 'cause like it's made about bio and west coast schools complain about it mick Complaint on our show when when we had him on the line how before the season and he was like yeah. West coast. Bias is real. The east coast are haters basis. His team was cincinnati. They would have been in the top right but the the positive thing about west coast or east coast bias and no one paying attention to the west coast is washington season right now because if washington see if this was happening at a pick an acc. School virginia tech. Yep even like a virginia tech. If virginia tech was four and seventeen are they. Now i mean we we. We spend so much talking about what we do. Is this program. Let's figure it out and like washington. It's like i don't know hopefully guys figured out extra time right. Now what's going on washington like what's going on their own speaker. You talked about like if you ask me my thoughts on syracuse. Be like man. Astor like might have a path to the tournament alabama potential. all right. Can we talk about the rivalry in the pac twelve lease. Because i wanna make a have an opening statement. Ucla arizona was tonight. And i just wanna say. I still believe in this rivalry. I still love this rivalry. there's something about seeing. Ucla zone on the basketball court works for me and tonight. It's it's it's it's it's not like it's losing its luster. I granted i understand that. The arizona is is not eligible for the tournament this year. Ucla's best player. Chris smith tears. Acl he's been out. Most of the ucla has not played well before tonight. I felt like they haven't had like a actual game. That should be proud of in like a month. Yep so i understand for everyone listening not on the west coast. You're saying who cares. Ucla arizona. What is it nine hundred ninety seven. I don't care. I don't i'm telling you still care today. This is still what to me. I measure rivalries. I'm not saying it's as good as duke and kentucky duke. It's not even as north carolina louisville. I don't care. I'm saying for me personally. This is like a is my version of for me for me. It's better than kentucky louisville. Our list of If we're making our goat list and kobe and they're like i don't care if he's my go for me. I grew up. I want say that about arizona. Ucla it is one of my one of my many goat rivalries I still get excited about. And bill walton on the call and you think about his son pleaded arizona and he played the whole thing. I buy into the also in the crowd at the games for some everywhere. That's a soft move did. That's a salt lake. Dear call up big way pill not bill move from yeah but for for oregon put like a legend of another school. That's it Homema- hami hawk is is the star of ucla. Hami hawkins hami hockey is twenty five points career high. I believe the orange birthday birthday interesting. Shout the helmet heavy heavy birthday helmet. Johnny giuseppe by the way head on the washington trip. He had like thirty. Two points gets washington like twenty-seven hits washington state. There it feels like how. Ucla is winning games. Just like one guy goes off. All right cool remember the gay the stanford they ended up losing it but choosing had like twenty two straight points for your sellers..

"Is a guy who is in the hall of Fame so interesting when the second year player can say that about a head coach Collins Sexton but by the standards of that team. That's sort of a veteran. That's a whole other set of problems. But but let's start with you as the basketball guy at the table. Jay will is. Does this mean that. The notion that lifer college coaches guys who are accustomed to that having the kind of control that you have in college you don't have it in the in the NBA or the NFL. That that just isn't going to work. I think for some guys may Brad Stevens got inserted into really good situation. Billy Donovan had Russell Westbrook I with okay. See I think this physician means a lot here? Guys and some coaches micromanage at the collegiate level. Because you have to at some other coaches have the disposition of being a little bit more laid back a laid back approach. I would say a guy like bill self. I can see bill self being an NBA coach. Because he doesn't micromanage every situation of the day at these guys go through and I think that's a major difference here. We see this in pro football as well NACHO. You had a fascinating story about chip Kelly. I was a second year guy in Philly as soon as chip Kelly got to Philadelphia the eagles. They trade for me from Cleveland. I get to Philly and chip renown coat from college in College. You take a bus to the hotel. You take a bus from the hotel to the stadium so chip gets to Philly and all of a sudden in the NFL rather than driving to the Games. Would you do every game? You drive to leave after the game chip has US take a bus from the facility to the hotel and take a bus from the hotel to game like we were kids when not tell y'all that lasted all of two weeks before like half the players started to revolt like you can't do some things in the NFL that you do in college and the quicker coaches can know that and understand that the quicker you in most coaches. Oh can't the last two weeks so much in the NFL in the NBA player Driven League? And whether you like it or not the talent of the players and players comfort to a certain point matters and so you know ride into the game making sure you're getting your mind right guys. WanNa get their different tons all those kinds of things. We always talk about the devil in the details but I think when you cross the lines right. Get on the field. Get on the court. That's when the details but all the other all that extra that coaches try to push on gas that's gotta be intrinsic guys. Got a what dad when you have players do that? That's where your leadership. That's Tom Brady separates himself peyton. Manning drew brees. It's just how it's it's the leadership they have that everybody else around going. I WANNA be like that. It's not the coach. Go I want to be like him? You want to be like the guys you drive you from a player perspective. A couple years ago I had the privilege of doing David blasts contract. He was a play Coach Ed won multiple championships over in Europe. And we did the deal where he went to Cleveland and ironically. He had successfully went to the finals that first year but he always talked.

"Can kind of keep everyone together. But that's really not reality. And you look. Pat Mahomes is well aware of what his value is. Least I'm Berg. Is well aware of what he means the Kansas City and I will tell you this I have never seen an organization almost happy at the fact that you know. They're in this position to where they may be. Well they're going to be signing someone to a record setting deal and be all all the more willing to do it and when you have a guy like it's funny how his effect on the football team on the field and off the field meaning how he has everyone else just wanting to step up their game and play a little bit better. Perform a little bit better. Prepare a little bit harder. How that can go a long way and kind of maybe get more out of certain players that maybe you thought otherwise so. I just don't think that that's going to happen with pet. I think he's GonNa get every dollar that you think he's going to get and bread beach. The general manager down there because it's going to have to work behind off to get some of those younger players that come along and play maybe above and beyond what they expect Lewis Outstanding to see my man. Thank you so much. We'll run here and I'm a very quickly to the table. You just talked about the value of Chris Jones. How important is they lose him. They winning the superbowl next year. No It'd be you have to go. Both sides man. I mean you think about as good as Patrick Mahomes is. You saw the year before when your defense can't get it done. Big Games big moments playoff football team football not just one man driven. Yeah the player that will be edged out. We'll be Sammy Watkins. They're not gonNA let Chris Jones Go. If they can't get a deal done they will franchise him. He will be there next year. Okay you could carve that and sharpy as match. I would say and somebody else will go. It will be from the receiver position. The simple as this. No team has won the super bowl with the quarterback commanding fifteen percent of the salary. Cap The chiefs do not win super bowls if PAT mahomes takes crazy money. Tom Brady's earn less than Peyton. Ally Andrew Breathe. But he's the winningest quarterback of all time. Okay so we will have to see where that goes again. Let's a month from this free agency. This another story here.

"And tastes him. He'll smart in what he's saying he feels like that's his best chance to continue this success that he's had obviously he's made the comments that he wants to play quarterback but the saints already to contend You the game. We're showing right now with San Francisco. Jerry Cook was cooking. He got injured. Drew brees is still an elite quarterback in this league and steel lead to a super bowl. He actually had the saints in position to move on further in. The playoffs had not been for watching cow. Rudolph catch the game when it does now. This was a great announcement for the saints but also for Taste Hill. Who who has made the statements about wanting to be quarterback he gets another year to Kinda by his time with drew. Brees COMING BACK. It would have been very interesting What the saints. How the saints would have maneuvered if drew brees would say. He wasn't coming back and he was going to retire. But this is everything. Easier for their franchise no question so everyone here is in agreement about that. Here's the next piece of this. That I think is actually the more interesting part because it sets in motion. Domino's that should mean teddy bridgewater goes off Jeff. Saturday said this morning should go to the colts that becomes a super bowl. Marriage Acho has some questions about just. How good bridgewater is. I'm trying to read the look on your face. Marcus Spears. What do you think the codes flag? You listen got the top three offensive line. You'RE GONNA play indoors and be protected. The deep it's in the AFC south aren't that scary. All you have is strength. You have the ability to go win. You'll have a good run game because of what set up Chris Ballard their. Gm understands about protecting the quarterback and Google play which he's trying to instill and this is your best opportunity to go win now. If you're Teddy Bridgewater you want super bowl. You know what happened with the saints. Now your your next best option is to go with the coast. I'm telling my age call. I'm not sure first of all if Jeff. I'm not sure if Teddy is thinking Super Bowl. I think teddy is thinking I need to make as much money as I possibly can right now because he was on the field and suffered a catastrophic injury that they kind of reiterated to him that this thing is not promise so that may be his number one catalyst. That doesn't mean he needs to go to a franchise or organization. That's not trying to win the super bowl or not in a position to have success in the future. But I don't know if Teddy Bridgewater is a tremendous upgrade over Jacoby Brusett and wager. Kobe was playing before he sustained his injury. And you look at this team with the with their ability to run the football and a young defense. I don't think that Teddy Bridgewater takes them over the top. They we look in their conference. Obviously into Shawn Watson is going to be the guy just like we talk about guys trying to avoid that conference To go play against Pat Mahomes in in in their success teddy bridgewater to me is primed to go to the Tampa Bay buccaneers. Thanks to go where Bruce. Arians is a quarterback that's competent. That doesn't turn the football over. Obviously we know about James is done and I believe Teddy Bridgewater in that culture in that locker room. We'll have more of an impact probably than anywhere in the NFL. When you think about his leadership quality we see the numbers up here where he did for the saints in that five game span but if you listen and talk to players around this lead there is a tremendous amount of respect and admiration not only for Teddy Bridgewater bouncing back from his injury but come back and being able to sustain which was a team that was super bowl. Destin we always get up and talked about. Oh my God drew brees just got hurt. The saints have missed their opportunity and teddy came in and did this thing. You had spears. I like to think I'M SMART. But when you disagree with me right there you confirmed you say to the bridgewater. Is that big upgrade percent. Now Spears you my dog so they might think we texted about this off air and it was just doing me a solid. I'm telling you spears. Hit the nail on the head gentleman. It's not that big upgrade perset pre injury. Just saying that and going to Marcus's intelligence. I totally agree with Marcus about going to Tampa Bay because both the House.

"The job done you know. We'll preview this game extensively when I'm in Waco on the ground Friday but that sets up the biggest game of the season. This is the best resume in the second. Best resume in college basketball and Both teams leaving little doubt so credit to Baylor for one in the way that it did on the road against Oklahoma just to circle back the Dayton real quick. Like if somebody were to ask me. What's my confidence level? That didn't comply with anybody in the country. It's ten ten out of ten. They already shut. They've played with everybody in the country. They won every game. They play except for two and the two that they lost were both at overtime to Kansas and Colorado. That by definition means they can play with anybody and You mentioned Jalen crutcher here. You know the thing. People don't realize about him he's Marcus Grassy. Half brother he is half brother is killing tilly. Okay would have Jalen Crutch and kill until you were half brothers. I go with that. Be Maybe ten out of ten good. That's how good it would be. You want to get to the MAILBAG OUR REAL I. We asked a real quick. I will just give a quick shout to Maryland for getting the job done as well so You know they were another team Th The wind was simple but they also they got it done but it is getting late and we can get to the mailbox. I popped into the mail. The reviews though and shouts to everyone for doing this. This is like this is some good stuff here so go ahead. The most recent one though is is a good one so I hope that's involved there because there are some serious deep cut references in that That thing I'm loving this. I don't know I didn't do this sooner fired away. What are we got okay? I Mel that question. We try to pull the questions from Apple. Podcasts reviews go there leave a five star review. Right whatever you want to write and you've got a question maybe we'll grab it and do it on the mid week podcast so I got three. The first one comes from someone who identifies Cat Mo one two three and I want to be clear quoting these questions because some of Just it's worded weirdly. Sometimes I just paraphrase so basically I'd try to get the gist of your question and then I present what kept my one-two-three wants to know is why is it that the rest of the ACC specifically team NC state has to do so much more just to be viewed equally as a team compared to say UNC. Which is tied for last in the ACC standings he says he gets TV. Time discussed podcast so on and so forth and they sucked all year. Why is that? You want handle this. Because I've got a pretty simple answer. Just take it well. Carolina's one of the four five biggest brands in the sport their coach by a hall of Famer with three national titles they typically have NBA players in this particular season projected lottery. Picking Co Anthony so North Carolina. Being great is a big story. North Carolina sucking is also a massive story. So I'm not trying to argue that North Carolina's better than NC state this season but undeniably North Carolina's a bigger national story than NC state. This season and Mojo season because North Carolina's a little bit like Duke and a little bit like Kentucky. And it's really those three. I think that are probably a level above everybody else when it comes to this no matter what they're doing it's a big story when they're great. It's a big story when they're bad it's arguably even a bigger story. So that's why North Carolina gets talked about so much as a preseason top. Ten team that you know is is terrible and they keep losing at the. Buzzer which is ridiculous. It's unbelievable how many games they've lost one possession at the Buzzer or in the final one. Two three or four seconds incredible And Roy Williams actually. He actually cursed at the press conference on Monday night and then I saw the topic on the topic bar on. Pti on Tuesday. We're going to give Roy Williams a pass for cursing or something. I couldn't believe what I was like. Yeah this is Williams. Yeah we're going to give him a pass. He's having like the worst season of his entire life by the NC STATE. It's also like sixteen and nine seven seven league. Not Top fifty team like it's nowhere near the installation tournament. Conversation bubble like Scott South. I think that kind of goes without saying but I think that question gets submitted because NC state fans are really passionate group and are eager to try and keep pace with the Carolinas. But they were just again. I HAVE NO ANTI NC state bias like my anti Duke by which is clearly evidence on each and every podcast. Apparently they're just not they're not as big of a deal but when they are and when they're interesting we have no we truly have biases on this podcast. We try and give teams and coaches and players and story lines that are worth it some run here and NC state just and has has not been that kind of team this season at all. Stay in the for a second Florida. State's twenty two and four ranked in the top ten. What's the bigger story north? Carolinas Carolina may not be right. But that's what it is and you know what when we get to Martin and Florida state's fighting for a two seat or three seed and we have talked about him. We've talked about Leonard. Hamilton shouts no doubt about it. But Yeah No. Carolina is because it's it. Carolina was at this point. If they were you know sixteen and ten. We'd probably almost never would be talking about him but it's because there is bad as they are. That's why it's such a big story right like There Florida State is a top ten team in the country and yet more people are interested in another North Carolina loss than another Florida state win. That's the simplest way to put it second question comes from be Janssen seven and what be Johnston. Seven says that Less they've been watching big twelve basketball for a long long time and he says he doesn't out Baylor and Kansas on the defensive end of the court but wonders if either is good enough simply to win the national title while You Baylor and Kansas. Yeah I think they're both good enough to win the national title. I just think Kansas Number one team has been that way for a while and is one of two teams that ranks top ten in both offensive and defensive efficiency so top. Ten offense number ten and number two defensively They actually took a step back And because West Virginia was as good as it was in. Its Win on Tuesday against Oklahoma state. One sixty five forty seven West Virginia actually leaked ahead of Kansas in the defensive efficiency department. But yeah that's this is a pretty quick one. Yeah they both are definitely good enough. Offensively actually got asked on. Hq and I'll ask you real quick here Which team I had more confidence in in March between Kansas and Baylor in advance of the big game on Saturday Bela's got the better resume. Kansas has slightly better numbers. You GotTa pick one or the other march right now. These teams this season. Who Do you have more confidence in Kansas Kansas? Same I said the same thing. Yeah I like I like listen I think I don't think Kansas should be ranked number one in the country right now from a human perspective based on the body of work I think Gonzaga's got a better body of work. I think Sandy was undefeated and I think. Baylor clearly got a better body of work with a win at Kansas. But if you told me right now I can only have one team to win the National Championship. I would take Kansas because they are really starting to to check all the boxes. You need to check to win a national championship terrific on both ends of the core got a hall of Fame Coach. Terrific POINT GUARD ALL AMERICAN LEVEL CENTER. And they're starting to shoot it better from three point range Thirty five point one percent now and that's not great but it's good enough. North Carolina WanNa title few years ago shooting thirty five percent from three Villanova's first titles shooting thirty six percent from three. So they don't shoot it as well as Virginia did last season or Villanova the season before but they shoot it as well from the perimeter and with enough different players to match what recent national champions have done. I don't think they're the clear cut favorite but I would make the my favorite to win the two thousand twenty NCAA term. I'm I'm pretty close to. I think if we started tomorrow I would pick conservative but between Kansas and Baylor I would pick Kansas state. Beat my two and then I mean can baylor would be my be my three all right last question. Are you going to ask? My last question comes from Anthony and actually pulled this off twitter and he says that he's frustrated by the absence of NC double a college basketball games on Sunday and Monday of the NBA. All Star break. He says You know they barely anything on Sunday. Barely anything on Monday. He calls it a missed opportunity for college basketball why you have the NBA on break. Every day that they're on a break you should take advantage of agree or disagree dead-leg I agree first off. I'm going to give a shouts to the this Josh Passenger Review. And we gotta get to this next week. That might actually be passed. I believe that that Josh. Basse not actually think there's a better than twenty percent chance that Josh passenger actually did leave a five star review a great comment and some great questions. So let's hit that one next week because there's some good stuff in there. It's actually a good question. I wondered if you were going to go there but Josh passengers to you and if it's faked fasteners asked us well The reader that's administered question is absolutely on the money here Big Monday has been terrible this season. It's been like what it once was when obviously the biggest was bigger in the big east now along are part of big Monday because he. Spn doesn't carry that conferences games anymore but it's a good thing and a bad thing in some way like it's good that like Monday are there's a there's two games on and they haven't been good so there's not a lot there so I guess from a workflow standpoint it slows for us a little bit and that's good but it's bad for College Basketball. There's very few games. It's nothing but those two games and and like Maxwell Games that's it Sunday just doesn't have as heavy of inventory and that's sort of because a lot of leagues particularly the Lesser Leagues. Which don't get as much attention. But all those games happen because of travel partners with other schools in the league schedules her bounce and then so you really only have a schools like our conferences. Like the big ten. The American Athletic Conference a Little Bit of PAC twelve. They just sprinkle some but the the listener is correct particularly in a week. Like this..

"Remember. 'em Night Shamlan. It is Russell Wilson old. No I mean I don't even just look at the highlights. Highlights I mean I must have missed Russell Wilson. Two weeks ago the two weeks ago three weeks ago three Seattle could could have won the division there on the one yard line now. They're allergic to the one yard. Line or something I just don't know how in the world is your quarterback back. Get a delay of game Aaron Rodgers. That would have never happened. Never man he is in Rogers such a great. If I was starting to football about team I'll look at him as a guy that I would most definitely have. Russell wasn't had no editor no at at As many as twenty three. When you look at the the talented Russell Wilson he had around him and rising Rogers has not had like he has not had a run again finally this year? He has a running game like John. Elway didn't have run again. He finally got super bowls when he got a running game. So for my money for sure I mean I was always beginning rises fan. I think cow herd heard was making your argument that as things play out this is going to be a lot closer than people think and he thinks like you to Russell. Wilson's GonNa GonNa win this race. I'm not willing to go there. I just for the reasons Aaron Eric just said if Aaron Rodgers had the legion of boom you have have three super bowl if if Aaron Rodgers had Pete Carroll I think he'd have a couple more super bowls and and listen. Do I think Aaron Rodgers has potentially underachieve based office talent at this point. Yes has Russell Wilson overachieved based on I. I'd say yes. I just have to see Russell. Wilson's going to have to have a hell of a finished his career to catch and Rodney. Well I'm a green banana guy. Though you know I kind of try to project out three years then look back three years. I see Russel Wilson as Green Bananas on the shelf. If you're if you're investing in Aaron Rodgers Stock Right now. You're buying a depreciating value. You're buying Russell Wilson. It's still on an upswing. This guy is playing unbelievable believable football and has been this season and that's not to demean. What Rogers has done? Were really comparing to greats here and in in this vacuum in this single season. Two great seasons by two great quarterback. So it's a fair comparison. I give edged Russell Wilson because again we're talking careers and the breadth of the career lawyer at some point rich. Though won't Russell Wilson have to be the best quarterback in the league in order to surpass. A-rod you gotTa Win Minimal the point. MVP's to a certain extent our popularity contest Lebron James in a different NBA. Okay okay. Well let's keep it on NFL. I mean sometimes it is the flavor of the month. There was a point where this was a three dog race. Where you had Russell Wilson just Shawn Watson Lamar Jackson National Lab Reeve Breathe himself out of that? I have in the second half of the season that is not. MVP worthy so look. This eighteen in terms of success is better this year than last year when they had the number one rushing offense and Russell Wilson departure from Legion of boom. So yeah you could be excited about the results. I'm not excited about a guy in this particular conversation. Going against Aaron Rodgers who was in the new system everyone says Aaron Rodgers attitude. What is bad for for his teammates? Bad for the coacher. Aaron Rodgers got rid of a coach and change things to a better outcome so we eh questioned him but let's not question his results at this point. This is a thirteen team. That's going forward and had a bye week so he. He put his team in the first year system. Aaron Rodgers did in a better position than we've seen Russell Wilson do when he's independent of number one running game and Legion get a boom. I mean the only argument provide because we're comparing things that you know. There's there's a new head coach and Green Bay but you have a terrible offensive line in Seattle. I mean you can always have your things that set you back behind the eight ball. But as a great as an elite player you overcome and we've seen that in Seattle. This season is in overcoming an offensive line. Where you really if you get behind in the score? You don't have a chance. So what is Russell. Wilson do improvise Z.. Make sure that he doesn't get sector actor pressured as much or create with his legs and gets that ball where it needs to be on time. In spite of some of those factors that could really hamstring the success of this team. But when you see when you see an rodgers when he got her with last year you got hurt and how the team the team without him. That team is like not. I mean you take Russell Wilson. Don't think Seattle would suffer but it wouldn't be such a big drop off was everybody knows. and Rogers who the second best player Aaron Rodgers. Who is the therapist? The Best Player from Russell Wilson. Because you can't even imagine because he's never missed a game no that's true. That's it's in the equation that we compare grades we say well stood the test of time Donald. What's the lowdown on the Super Six? This weekend yes sir we got seahawks packers before Ford again kicks off on Fox News Sunday. Download the Super Six seven. Play for free for your chance to win Terry.

"I know the ball in your left hand. As you're kind of like wiggling down the court has been pretty iconic for us but we actually have the greatest Dunkin. MBA history that we want to turn into a silhouette of Lebron draymond. Are you cool if we just like you know submit a new proof for a new logo. It's that bother you. I mean I think you have to explore that also follow up question that just popped into my head. If Lebron made that dunk on Draymond draymond goes into the parking lot after the game and calls K. D. This Katie. Even answer the phone very good question and also does dream. I'd ever sign with clutch. Can you come back from that. Like okay you align yourself herself with the business interests of the guy who pulverized you. I think these are all like I said it's a great great great MBA. What if are are we got another question? Here from Tanner. He writes so Ben. No opinions on the Utah Jazz. At all I listen every week and you guys never talk about them except once in awhile. Talk About Conley. A third of the way through the season and we haven't gotten any takes on Donovan. Mitchell Bouillon Bogdonovich. How well or how poorly? They're playing their schedule schedule. Are they under overperforming. Nothing at all. And Tanner I appreciate this question because you realize that I was probably GonNa take three weeks to read it which is exactly what happened so oh you left it. Totally open ended so that I would just say anything about your team. I appreciate that. Now I do have a few scattered. Utah Jazz takes but Michael Michael. What is your sense of the State of the Utah Jazz Union? How are you feeling about the jazz right? Now it's pretty tough. I mean they you know after the first few weeks of the season when I was thinking that they were the most disappointing team in the whole league. Probably I mean. I thought that they were illegitimate championship contender. Coming in. And you know they ripped off twelve twelve of thirteen against a cupcake schedule and Mike Conley has not played since December four th so I just feel like there's more questions than answers right now with this team. They they clearly miss. Derrick favors rudy Gobert when Rudy Gobert sits. Their defense is really bad I thought Donovan Mitchell would be a little bit better although I feel like his shot selection is coming around after an atrocious. Start to the year. And you know when they traded for Jordan Clarkson I my initial reaction was. Wow how they are extremely desperate. But he's played okay. I'm a little skeptical. That he'll keep that up. My last thought real quick is just that Bogdonovich riches looked like an all star and when he curls around those screens at the elbow and catches a pass at the free throw line and pulls up it goes in I a AH checking my notes right now. One hundred percent of the time so play has worked out tremendous for them so the desert interesting. I don't know if they're contender anymore. I'm I'm really I'm scared for win. Conley comes back what they look like. Yeah so I think first things first tanner. I know you're begging for a little attention here but you don't need us to tell you the Utah Jazz. Have started to figure it out right. I mean as Michael said the the schedule started to balance out. Come back to Earth a little bit. And they go on a big time winning streak. And they're ripping off victories looking much more functional and much closer to what we thought at the start of the season Now I think the biggest question for them as it's the All star one that you raise a Bogdonovich. He's not really going to be in this conversation. I don't think But I think they have an interesting dilemma is their representative. And I think they're going to get a representative right. At least one John Willoughby Rudy Gobert air or Donovan. Mitchell and I look at the Jazz I still feel like they're defining players go bear. They win with defense more than offense. I think that that he's been snubbed. Some previous years. which shouldn't factor in as a heavy factor but it needs to be considered? I still think he's one of the very most influential defensive figures gears in the entire league. He's got good numbers. He's inefficient offensive threat. Even though he doesn't have the most complete offensive game and I still feel bad that he cried about not getting last year and again net should weigh in here but I do think that he has been overlooked multiple times. It feels like it's sort of the right time to honor him now. So the on the sides. Oh yeah on the flip side. You've got Donovan Mitchell. Who has like textbook franchise player marketable Great Smile Gray with the media Flashy game impressive score. Big numbers And you know he's been in the dunk contest before he's just kind of a natural fit. It's almost it's like a young Damian. Lillard where he was knocking on the door for a couple of years to couldn't quite crack the case and now Donovan. Mitchell finds himself in a similar position as kind of a small market franchise franchise guy right so there's cases for both to make it but there's only twelve spots. I'm worried that only one of those guys is going to get in so Michael. If you had is your pick would you take Bruti or Donovan or both or neither Joe. INGLES now I I I I am more of a Donovan Guy I just am I no disrespect to rudy Their offense has been best in the NBA since Conley went down In early December just a quick little tidbit So Donovan's been kind of the spark plug their. I love how he passes. I love his assist. The numbers aren't superb but just whenever he does get an assist. It's usually like what the hell just happened like. He flicks his wrists in the ball. Just teleport's so I I just like watching him more also and I think rudy has been better offensively than I anticipated this season he looks more coordinated and stronger. But but I'm going with Donovan. Okay I hear you. So let's say Donovan does get in because of the marketability factor the factor. Just the you know. He's kind of like your prototypical all-star Type Guy I. What do you need to do? If you're Donovan. Mitchell to make it right with Rudy Gobert if you get in. And he doesn't get in again. I feel like it's gotta gotta be like matching rolexes for rudy and Rudy's mom like I think it has to be a major gesture there. Don't you think lifetime supply of Kleenex or Dole. So come on. Wow you are terrible. Man Then Yeah no you would have to. I feel like we talked talked about this earlier. I feel like where they exclude. Create some some discomfort I think for me though with the Jazz I assume did you. Did you think coming into the year that they were a championship contender. I thought they were going to be a top to your regular season team but I always have questions about teams in terms of putting them in that category or if they don't have time to a wings and so that was still my hang up there but I thought they had a chance to be a top two or three seed and that's still in play for them right. I mean I. I don't think that's too overreactive to the recent success. I mean the two through five pack right now in the West is is super tight and and I love how their main lineup pieces fit together. As you're saying the offense has been excellent lately and I expected them to have a very very good offense. This year I also thought Collie was going to be a bigger part of it so that looms as a question but to me they have a chance to position themselves for home court to the first two rounds potentially and at that point you're in the mix I just still would put. You know the Lakers and the clippers a cut above them. If I'm saying which teams really have a chance to win the title this year. Yeah I I see that when I when I look at them. I'm Kinda like Donovan. The reason why I would also have done this on all stars because is if I'm was crafting a case for the Utah Jazz. Actually get into the finals. It would be because Donovan. Mitchell had dwayne Wade ask performance. So so I don't know if he has that in them this season but that's kind of what they would need to beat. The Lakers beat the clippers and get as far as some people thought that they could before the season began for sure. And also you know Rudy Gobert would need to benefit from fewer extreme small ball lineups capable of exploiting him right I think that's a big factor for them to like. I don't see them. You know winning multiple series and the playoffs. In which Rudy's he's not leaving a major impact to right if you have to pull out and certain match ups or you have to skill as minutes back a little bit or he's getting exposed by ball handlers like he has in the past like a Chris. Paul aw back during those rockets and jazz series. I think that would be a hang up as well Michael. We're going to close it out with one. More email is very very thoughtful. Came in from Dylan in Adelaide South Australia and he writes ban. Look I know this is off topic as far as basketball is concerned however as someone who appreciates the environment and helping others there's combined with the fact that you have a significant platform these days. Thanks to the open floor globe. I was wondering if you could help us out with something. That's bigger than basketball. Australia is burning earning and it is being saved by volunteer firefighters. We need all the fundraising. We can to help these firefighters but more importantly to help the people who have lost everything everything in their lives. These fires are twice as big as the California an Amazon fires combined. The fundraiser initiated by Australian comedian. Celeste Barber has reached an astonishing thirty million Australian dollars and it's increasing by the day. The Australia members of the open floor globe would be forever forever grateful for any awareness that you can create. Thanks for any help that you can provide dylan. Thank you so much for you know putting this on the front of my mental mental plate. It's been terrible to watch the images and the videos that have come out from Australia. We have a very dedicated open floor. Globe member Edberg named Cecilia. Who keeps me apprised of the developments on the fires on nearly a daily basis? And I appreciate her for that. The loss of animal life The loss of the homes that you're describing it hits hard man so I encourage everyone. Who's listening to this? Who still with US after sixty minutes of US bantering about the absolute worst places to play professional basketball? I mean that was a pretty extended dark conversation. Let's spin this for more positively to a country that is arguably number one on my bucket bucket list right now for visiting and a part of the globe that I've always been captivated by if you can go. Fine Celeste Barbers fundraiser. Its on facebook. Just search for her name Celeste Barber. I was checking it out the engagement and the donations like Dylan was describing just out of this world and Michael. We don't do this too often on open floor we we did it once for Puerto Rico and a couple of things but you know step up everybody. If you've got a little bit of money you can ship in here to really help community in a country. That's in New Right now. I know they would be so grateful and I know I would be so grateful On.

"I'm going to start you with a couple of just quick hitter ideas from around the globe. Okay I'll Lewis from Tucson writes. I'm listening to the latest open floor and Joe Suggestion Shen for the most dedicated award sounds awesome. Now we're talking about ways to honor commemorate David Stern but Lewis points out that it could be simplified ride because Joe's idea reminds him of the Walter Payton Man of the year award in the. NFL is never going to get the same publicity or clicks like the MVP does does but there is a dedicated fan base. Who Really Cares about that award and more importantly the players in the running for it really seem to care as well I think the NBA man? The end of the year award would be the perfect way to honor Mr Stern Lewis. You did it. You cracked the code. I'm in it's the NBA Man of the year award. Michael Are you. UN down. I mean this is basically what we discussed on the on last week's episode but it's just cleaner called the David Stern man of the year award. It's perfect right. I love it yeah This is really interesting to see how people bullet engaged with it and who would be a candidate and So yeah I'm a big Fan. I'm into awesome work. I love when the open floor globe helps us refine idea idea an idea on the fly and we get to the right outcome at the end. It's part of the brainstorming process. We love it all right another idea from JC from Franson. He's coming at Hugh Michael. I love this too. He writes just a note regarding the change that Michael proposed if he was commissioner for a day in which you would get rid of all basketball interference terrence Michael. Don't you realize you would have robbed the basketball community of an iconic moment last year. Kawai Leonard's game seven shot against the sixers sixers. There was four balances. Someone could have risen up like Ben Simmons and knocked the ball off the rim before the second bounce Michael Michael I know you respect that moment. So don't you WanNa reconsider your idea. Michael it's a great point. I hadn't considered this but you would be changing being a huge moment in NBA history with your rule. Change going forward. Are you still in favor of getting rid of basket interference. I mean Jay Save it just brings up a great point. I'm not changing my stance on this at all but that was a great moment in NBA. History I will say though that imagine if everyone was allowed to just crash the rim after the first bounce like how entertaining would that be. Who knows you say? Ben Simmons Men's gets to it who knows mark assaults rate there. Marcus could have been the hero would Joel Embiid of even gone out to contest knowing that he could have hung around at the rim to Swat a potential bouncing dancing ball away like there's so many different scenarios that could have happened had Had the rules been different. So I I see Jaycees point I love his point I wouldn't want to change that moment at all but I am just saying you know there's a reason also that a ball has not bounced on the rim like seventeen times gone in to win when a game seven of a playoff series before so. Let's not overreact to that one moment where they'd say yeah. I think you just want to bring slam ball to the NBA. Right were you just want just rim attacks constantly on all bouncing shots. I can't let against that. That sounds pretty fun. I think we need to think through the specifics on this one. Now we've got on an email from Scott in Singapore who said he loved the segment on being commissioner for a day and he had a whole bunch of different ideas I want to highlight one of his though and I think it it was actually the most the least radical idea he wants to implement phoebus unsportsmanlike foul rule. When you just grab a guy not making a play on the ball I think the idea of that row basically is to open up transition opportunities so you get to see more and more highlight level? Place rather than just getting the annoying dead ball now. When guys make that foul I think you know old school people would say oh smart foul smart fouled taken away two points right but if we're looking at it from the entertainment side of the game it definitely makes the NBA worse and so they should institute that You know it's kind of similar to the clear path. Foul I guess but should we be in favor of rule. Changes is that I guess. Open up or or even bring in a continuation idea where if there is like a touch foul and transition. The referees can not to call it until the play continues to see if the guy gets the dunk angling for more open. Play in transition. What do you think? Yeah I mean those fouls I call them the Pablo appreciate Tony Fouls because I didn't I never really noticed them as being such a nuisance until Pablo came into the league. But they're terrible like every single time. Someone is is a possibility ability of the literally the most exciting sequence in the game a fast-break opportunity. It gets broken up by a whistle and a foul like I personally hate it watching during the game and I know Jeff Van Gundy has gone multiple rants about it. I would love to see this rule changed. I'm with you. Let's shift gears here to another question from Brandon end in in L. A.. He writes the Knicks did a very good job signing everyone to partially guaranteed contracts over the summer now is time for New York to follow up and build on the one smart. I think they've done in over a decade and trade away some of those assets and turn them into real talent. The current squad is obviously no good but they had the ability to improve their team for the future or even for the rest of their season. So why haven't made a trade yet and who should be the first Knicks player to get traded so first of all I think you know. They have to trade yet because we haven't gotten to the trade deadline as usually when most activity heavy happens. So that's number one and usually that's where the best value is when you're selling off guys in this scenario is to wait to the last moment and kind of hope that a bidding war emerges merges but I wanNA push back a little bit here on the premise brandon Real quick before I throw it to you Michael Just because I think this idea that. Oh you've got flexible. Vo Contracts with their very movable trade assets it sounds good in theory but I really do think there's a destabilizing element to it in the you know in practice Where you bring all these guys with competing interests you know veterans? Who Don't know where their next situation are going to be? Guys who just took the biggest contract they could find and then expected that they would be traded down the road and it makes for a very difficult developmental culture. It makes it hard for young guys to learn. Feel like they're going to be surrounded by guys guys who are going to be invested in their success and feel like those guys are still going to be. There were three years from now. It's just tough. I feel bad for RJ Barrett being thrust into that situation knowing that a lot of the guys who are teammates. This year aren't going to be his teammates. Two years from now is not healthy is not good so I don't think we should be giving the knicks a lot of credit for this short term contract strategy. Yes it's better than signing terrible players to four year contracts for no reason right but only marginally better not significantly efficiently better. I don't think this summer was even a good salvage from New York now. Michael What say you so. s unwise in Begley recently reported that teams US around the league that call the Knicks about their players or under the impression that they don't want draft picks and future assets which I find fascinating I mean if I were operating the Knicks I would be looking to move guys like Marcus. Well first of all I would be looking to move probably everybody on the roster except RJ Barrett. But I would look be looking to trade guys who I think are on contracts that you could actually get some value for our like Marcus Morris. Sousse shooting like forty eight percent from three and I believe is their leading score Right now guys sue Wayne Ellington three point shooter Reggie Bullock at three point shooters. Someone who a contending team can utilize you know if they are actually interested in upgrading. This year's roster for the sake of I would assume trying to be stable for next season when the following summer. They'll have Max Max cap space and be able to sign someone like Janice Kubo. That's probably probably their thought process. But like I don't I just don't I don't really get that at all. I think you should be trying to get future assets. And if they don't and they wanna go another route I would look to move frank ntilikina Dennis Smith Kevin Knox even Mitchell. Robinson may be if you can try to get the players who are more win now players. But I just if you're really if you're if you're putting all your eggs in the basket to try to To try to score big in Free Agency Z.. Two Summers from now. You're definitely going about it all wrong and you haven't learned anything from this past summer. That sounds about right. I'm not sure they have learned anything at all. I would be trying to trade the front office I think at this point. I'd be thinking about it if I was ownership and I know that's just sitting at back to square one but that's what I would do if I was doing I would be less concerned about trying to squeeze out whatever value from these Players who in most cases aren't actually that good or that valuable and I would be more focused on. Let's get in a high level executive who could turn this thing around and that's probably going to have to wait until the summer so I guess my my general takeaway is. I don't think this trade deadline is going to be bringing the Knicks a lot of assets. I think it's going to be more like a garage sale than anything else. I think that there are some. You know Knicks cast-offs especially Marcus Morris. Ars who could change the trajectory slightly of a playoff team. But I don't think it's GonNa be a big time impact maker and I think every single player on that roster should should be available in trade with the exception of RJ Barrett so that includes Mitchell Robinson who understand has a lot of legions of fans their New York City but is really still struggling to become a night tonight. NBA Player so hope. That was dark enough for you brandon. I got nothing nice to say about the Knicks. All right a little bit of a lighter question here from Nikki writes in my the only person who gets more hyped. Up for Great Defensive Plays Than Offensive Brilliance. Michael how about you. I will say say I love defense and whenever I'm watching a game on Dvr a majority of the time. I'm rewinding play is because I want to do appreciate something that a team did or players on the defensive end that I probably didn't catch the first time around so I love defense. I also so thank you know watching offense as probably more of an entertaining proposition but I can see the value in both. I've always always loved chase down blocks. There was a great story years and years ago by Jonathan Abrahams. On sort of the art of the Chase Down Block and you know is focused around Lebron James I think he called him like the king of chase down block at that time it was a Nicolas Batum specialty. was the chase down block. So I went every washed all his blocks. It's Charles. How many chase downs that? He had the long arms. That loping stride in transition he was just like perfectly built for it. I think I don't know if I go post or dunk chase down block. If I had to choose one it's really really close because I love the poster dunks. I'm real deep into the The Dunk contest game. So anytime. There's someone who just like you know really get someone hard excites me but chase down blocks. Incredible it kind of goes back to like Lebron. Will we say Lebron signature play entire career is the block. I mean I think I would do it. I was about to bring this up and to kind of answer your question in a way do you. You think if Lebron so right after the chase down block a couple of minutes later he had that play where he cut and I think Kyri him from the baseline and he had this potential just like he was about to eviscerate draymond green with the Dunkin instead miss the dunk got fouled laying around on the ground for a few minutes. If he made that dunk doc and one exclamation point. They've definitely going to win the championship. Is that the statement. Play that we all remember. Do we still remember the block. We remember remember both and it just becomes this whole thing like Lebron two-way greatness at his absolute apex. He could do it in every direction you know the highlight play but also the hustle. Play like I think it would be become a duality where you wouldn't be able to remember one without the other. The Drain on Dunk is one of the greatest. What if said MBA history? Yeah I mean Oh my God we were close to maybe a new. Mba logo at that point. If you're Adam silver and you see that happen and that's how how Cleveland's title drought. That's Lebron completes his narrative arc. Do you consider calling Jerry West being broke..

I think he plays again. I think he'll play. Well inclusion New England. I don't a while guest. Do it about the chargers chargers what I talk about. Is The guys on that offense aside. That didn't step up in big situations you looking at Tom Brady possibly coming back back to be. The Patriots quarterback finish out his career man. Getting some help get this massive helped because the guys they got right there have there are not got that he need guys that he wants. Givers thing can I say something to all of that. You know it and I know he's probably one of the few guys whose objective who could could talk about other players and be honest. Those guys like Tom Brady and get it. Those are not objective opinions. They work in with. Tom Embraced they need to deal with Tom. Brady and I'm telling you and they've watched Tom Brady this past and they're going to say that he's still good in this note. Nothing wrong with Tom. Brady I don't think there'd be an honest hm so Tony Dungy is another. Who is now campaigning publicly for Tom Brady to please come and play for the Annapolis Colts objective about? I don't know how radio about terrel Owens. Does he love Tom Brady because he's been tweeting. That Dallas should let that go and go signed. Zayn Tom Brady. Terrel Owens said over you the most dignity doubt Okay Antonio Brown has he objected because he gets to play for for a minute rational he could be but when he when he's talking about football he knows what he is talking about and he has tweeted in this last week. I will only go where Tom Brady goes. Because I WANNA play with Tom Brady you think. Ab thinks he's finished. I think not bill belichick. Strap Tom Brady was simply leap. The worst supporting cast of any quarterback in football this year and it wasn't even close not only could did the line struggle to protect. Tom Brady eighty because they were average at pass protection. They were even more average at run blocking so he had little to no run game and poor pass protection and he simply simply had the worst receiving core in football. So those three guys from Dorchester. They were even better than anybody on this roster right now because the the receivers the wide receivers were last in the NFL in separation said pro football focus that titans were last in production. said the statistics. So you go from Gronk to Matt Lacoste and you expect him to survive with that. You could have thrown Aaron Rodgers into the New England patriots. Offense offense and he would have looked finish this year. Trust me on that and who is his only trusted receive react to wide receiver. Little Julian Edelman the former quarterback from kids stay. It was going to the hall of fame owner broken down this year with a busted did shoulder cracked ribs and a need that reportedly will require surgery in this off season he led Julian. Edelman led the NFL in drops this this year. And it's the only guy you have to throw to and it got so bad in the last three games Shannon Sharpe will appreciate this. That element was obviously one of the all-time great slot slot receivers back in the day. They had to start splitting out wide because he couldn't beat the double coverage in the middle of the field and they thought well. Maybe we'll get him singled up wide and then what happened in what looked like it might be a last drive to win the game against the Tennessee. Titans he throws it to element and it hits him right in the hand and he drops it and dropped the football game. And you're telling me that. Oh how could he do with more with less. Did you symbol Hamad Sununu this year. Bella check swung and missed. Maybe the reason that he was available. Oh well he could have had Emmanuel Sanders and my man across the table said. Why didn't he go for a man Mohammad? Sununu can't run anymore. He was a liability to this offense and then they did draft Mikhael Harry and I liked him but then I start looking at decay metcalf last weekend and I look at. Aj Brown around for the titans. And I keep going down the list. At deebo and Terry mcchord and I'm saying wait a second bell check swung and missed on the one guy. I thought could run in this offense so all the sudden. There's no more Josh Gordon. Because Bell check let him go and whatever happened to Danny 'EM DOLE bill check. Wouldn't pay him and what happened to Chris Hogan he wouldn't pay him and I'm thinking the wide receivers that you through five hundred and five yards worth of passes to in the Super Bowl when you set the all time playoff record all gone in. Wait a second. What about little brandin cooks all way? He traded him away to the rams. I'll even go to Jacob host or WHO's pretty good now for Seattle. He's kind of become a go to guy for Russell. Wilson ballot check traded away for a seventh round pick. What did you leave with Tom Brady? It feels feels like you sabotage. Tom Brady because you want him out of there and it worked you notice. All these receivers became hall of famous ones. Tom Brady wasn't the Guidi why they never gave Roy Brown. They never gave dion never older. They never talked about Tom. Receivers he can make anybody now that Eddie Kaye. Oh my goodness but you said you you love the client and you love the put up staffed declined. Let me tell you about Tom. Brady's completion percentage two thousand seventeen to two thousand the nineteen in two thousand seventeen. He was eighteen. He was eighteenth last year. Twenty seven yards per attempt he from fifth to thirteenth to twenty seven in Cuba. We are yes of all the stats and football. That's it kids bailiff. If he weren't aware that had that all snoop Dogg gave him the made him drip bailiffs the one that he wants his house and put up on the thing that what he hangs his head on. Tom Brady Twentieth Seventeenth with third in twenty eighteenth. He was night last year he was nineteen. Now you tell me this is a guy. That's not in decline Bela's Tom Brady right now looking at the donut. Now you don't leave that Dona town there for an extended. Take Time you get to a gas station. What we used to call a filling station and get it changed Kobe? Season's over looking to make a change gift. He's not the same Gal. We make excuses for it with elbow. He wasn't happy or he had bone spurs. I've never you're in my life. They didn't make for Emmett Smith with off his line to block it this. He's getting old. They didn't make excuses for Jay. Writes this jared just can't separate anymore but but Tom Brady we gotta find a reason why he struggled. He's forty to skip. He owned fumes right now. Now you know you're going Roy couple of feelings about downside the roles and you're not gonNA probably it. Would you saw it last year. In the playoffs there was a recurrent thing. You saw it the whole year here. You didn't see Tom Brady play. Tom Brady with the exception of maybe one game. The Pittsburgh steelers. What are you talking about last us? Play no no no no no no I said last year here the regular but I thought the play off. You Thought Hobo Right. You sell the charger game right. You see the game at Kansas City. Three the regions due to pick six to lose a game rob or was all saw. Have you ever had any lot of Alzheimer's. Have you ever seen a quarterback complete elite free straight third and ten passes over time to go in the game. It's never happened. DOERR Jimmie juicy. Oh Bob did you see Jimmy. D Jimmy GD he he.
"john beilein" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"If the Tom Brady era with the Patriots is indeed over. You may be surprised to hear That none other than any dome could be a good fit to replace the six time champ in New England. Peter King proposed the pairing yesterday saying he thinks that bill belichick would really like to work with the bengals signal caller and saying he may be the best available vet veteran. QB This off season. The bengals are expected to move on from after earning the number one overall pick in this year's draft following their two and fourteen season so shannon bowel check win a super bowl with Andy Doc. I believe he could believe he believes he could give because coach. Bela Jake believes he can take a guy and get the best out of him. He loved taking guys guilt. That everybody nobody else. That was somewhere else in town. Move on and bring him in as they see they got a note he was doing. It ain't nowhere to culture. That's why you believe that's why he did that with flowers. The Philip vehicles take out the air clouds in the second round. They moved on from it. They like we know what wingels the aircrew plot aero. Yeah we're GONNA TAKE AAC are suing the guy that made the play of the Super Bowl. The greatest plan sumo history. We'll put him on the bench. We all game. We're GONNA take the guy that y'all released uh-huh I'll show you and that's how he thinks. Coach belichick believe that. He deserves more credit than he got Tom. Brady 'cause I ah took you sure. Nobody had no greater. Tom Brady got the credit that he skipped. If Tom Brady. Were the first round draft pick. This just say I have to say I o ball. Tom Brady wouldn't be thought of like years is because he came from Berkeley obscurity in everything the MVP the regular season the super bowl. The Super Bowl wins as many any time. It'd be one the game winning drives ability. y'All won't give me no credit for that. I'll get nothing. Everybody of quarterback head coach. He gets credit for it but but I will get nothing to do with Matt Cassel dominated with the two thousand eleven and five. which is an anomaly? Skip that eleven. Eleven and five team wasn't even a wild car. We get that sometimes. Because we saw the New Orleans saints this year go thirteen and three and become a wildcard. He's a degeneracy. What I'll do with Jimmy Midge? Garoppolo along with Tom. We're four games so you get andy. Dalton I'm out of BEUMER WEAPONS BUT IF YOU'RE GONNA add weapons to give Andy Dalton won't you give those say weapons to Tom. Brady Code. milkshakes looks at it like this at at some point in time I can't keep kicking the can down the road. I'm eventually have to pick up and move on coachella takes I love Tom. Look at what we've been able to do but at some point in time I've got to move on and he deserves the right to see if he can win without Tom. Writing and Tom served the right. Okay right I mean whether he wants to do that or not so I believe I believe. The question is is a thirty two thirty three year. Old Andy Out next year will he be better than a forty three year old. Tom Brady our bass. blushing that's good that's in a nutshell. Because when he gets into the bids because they want to see Ryan Billy Guy Guy he was one yard. He was fourth empathic. Tom Brady with V separated by yard. Okay so the question is at this point. Next year will not disappointed at to start. The season will be better than a forty three year. Old Tom Brady. I believe coach. Belichick thinks he could. I'm not saying he's going to do that but I believe coach Belichick believed that he would okay. The reason I love this topic is because I love Peter King and I've known him forever. He pulled the if nobody nobody is more plugged in and he doesn't just throw things up against the wall to see if they'll stick. This came from somewhere. He was doing the hypothetical. What if wouldn't it be interesting? If in his his sort of gut feeling was bill would like to go forward with Andy Dalton right. I'm GONNA guess he's heard that from. Maybe the man himself. Oh that was I. I got an eye on him here for bill but I gotta pull the high better correct so now my answer to this question is there's there's no way he could win a super bowl with Andy Dalton. I like Andy. Dalton Andy Dalton is pretty good but his career QBR in Cincinnati albeit albeit. For the Bengals. Whatever you call them? But he's a little below average he's forty eight on a scale of zero to one hundred. That's his career. QBR He's pretty good and he'll he'll win some games every moment. Okay I just want to drive home the fact that you would be replacing the greatest clutch player. This league is ever seen on the biggest stage in the sport because if you just quickly look back at what Brady did could Andy Dalton do all these things remember as a first year starter. When John Madden's ends up during the boost saying they gotta shut it down play for overtime net first super bowl against Saint Louis Rams he led him throw eight passes he completed five and set up a forty nine yard field goal and the rest is super bowl history and then against Carolina? The next year Tom Brady completed four or five passes for forty seven more yards to set up an Viteri for a game winning field goal and then against the giants and the one they lost when they could have been undefeated. Obviously Brady did what he always done. He completed eight passes for seventy one yards yards and the touchdown that with two minutes to go. Put them ahead. Okay and then we go to the Seattle superbowl. He was just extraordinary in the fourth fourth quarter. Thirteen of fifteen for one hundred twenty four yards and two touchdowns. They came from twenty four to fourteen down to win the game and again it took the beast mode decision at the end and the Malcolm Butler and I think the thing that coach Belichick is GonNa look at he says. Look I had the number one scoring defense. I believe that can bring defense back pretty much in. Check the question Ashdod and he says as long as I don't ask any don't to win me a game. Thirty eight forty one. Because Tom Brady didn't win that game. That was forty. What forty one? Thirty eighty three. So he can keep it close can end it. Don't make a play here. I'm trying to show you to demonstrate. How many times Tom Brady was extraordinarily clutch and pulled out games? That Andy Dalton would not be capable of pulling out because then you go to the Atlanta Super Super Bowl yes he throws for two hundred and forty six in the fourth quarter and overtime. It's unheard of. It's impossible leading to five hundred and five yards the all time playoff record and against the eagles and a game they lost but Brady put up thirty three points. You do know coach. Bela check the way he looks at it. He's looking at it like if you look at the game that we lost both my defense played good enough to win in the one time. That defense didn't play good. We lost you do realize forty one point. That's what I'm saying the one time. Hold on my defense here. One time heaven seventeen one time I defense What what what the final score? Twenty seventeen to fourteen which one one the first the first giant laws. It was seventeen to fourteen because they went ahead. Fourteen to ten minutes left I get my defense gave up seventeen points but defense in the next time the rod will be twenty seventeen twenty one hundred up like that. He's like hold on as long as I don't get into a shooter can keep a close to the vest. Can Andy Dalton Netscape blue. Let's not let's not kid ourselves. There's no way I'm putting not in the same not in the same galaxy if there's more than one I don't know how many gallons videos but andy is the one at Tom. Brady is in but coach bill to go into the mind of you. Know How coaches are skip. They believe is them. Just like the quarterbacks and players believe is Vale Michael Michael Jordan new across its hall of fame inducted. He'll get Phil Jackson's getting organization nickname. But but he believed coach. Belichick believes. I'm most responsible. I found him. I helped develop him. I let him sit nurture him Yada Yada Yada okay. Defense is so he believes he can get one how about the two. AFC Championship Games recently. Could Andy Dalton do this. They're down twenty to ten and early in the fourth quarter to Jacksonville at Foxboro and in the fourth quarter. Tom Brady those for one hundred and thirty eight and bring them back to win with twelve stitches in his in the palm of his throwing hand and then how about three straight third and ten conversions in overtime at Kansas City last year. In the cold. And you can't do that bill. Check benefited greatly greatly from all the above and then you blast brady for his performance in the last super bowl last year. WELL ON THAT ONE DR. You went four four for sixty seven yards including the big throat. A GRONK DOC and that won the game right but that's we'll see coach. Belichick is looking at. It is like coach. Bela checks in his office. He's like the last the last playoff games. Has I got the greatest quarterback the head and throwing a touchdown has two interceptions and scored thirteen points in both games one game. The team was absolutely healthy against the defensive coordinator. Dick wasn't rehired then in breakaway phillips back and again in my belly I don't know why they did was with gibbons they hold on in our building which about deeper cable fourteen points and I can't win a game and you gave Tom Brady Brady. The worst supporting cast in the NFL this year because they have you know. I I gave you the best defense argued that you've ever had okay. Bottom Line into this discussion. Is I just hope that Andy Dalton does become next years quarterback the New England patriots. Because I can't wait doesn't happen. Are you ready to see a big deal in Tampa next you know. Is it Tampa Arizona and in any limits in the New England patriots so we might have little do all of that swimming pool fully on that the next cue or read red rival rare right. Who might need some research there? Yeah allred northern I. I'm not saying put coach Belichick. Do you realize the pressure read. Rifle would feel to step into into those shoes and that stadium up there. I WanNa be the guy that follows the guy that followed that guy..
"john beilein" Discussed on The Woj Pod
"I think that I'm working the same amount of hours but I it's different hours and it's all basketball and really been lacasse rate and I think the other thing that happened gene is when we started in October. You don't go through. September usually go through where you're you're in a hotel room four days a week. Then you're hosting recruits on weekends weekends you do have a little bit tiny charged up for the season and that was that was attractive to me in this change in lifestyle they. I know it's eighty two games but it's probably only sixty practices and instead of thirty seven Games one hundred twenty five practices and then. It's just a year got over last year. We lost in the sweet sixteen tain. I went on the road for like twenty eight out of thirty days. I was on the road. You know just trying to figure out what the next home I needed to get into so that cow's games have been so good to me and not complain about one bit but this was the right time in my life to make this change why coach basketball right now build a culture be around around this incredible organization. Billy Donovan said something to me maybe somewhere in his first year after he had left Florida and Gone Oklahoma City that in college edge you spent so much time talking to and you know courting and trying to get to know players you're never never going to coach and that's where all your time was and you spent so much time in people play players you work in a get where whereas in the NBA you could invest your time remember at that time it was a summer he was out at Ucla working with Russell Westbrook in the gym with his guys and and and the other thing he said to me the two initially was when practice sends in College. What's the first thing you do you gotta go Gregorian phone. Get your phone who did I. What did I miss and in that sense. It's liberating right now. It really is down the stretch and I and I mean this in a good way but because I don't want an axe out. I did not come to the Cavaliers to escape from college basketball. Ask Good Ball but it was really compelling. When I first got my first call from the cavaliers you know it was an early. May and one of my assistants look legit tremendous guy says as coach don't forget we got a load about fifty names on your own because June fifteenth is coming up and you can text sophomores and I I just looked and I said thanks for that that I get the sixteen year olds here in days later so it's all all good it's so good to us but at the same time I was able to this time to find just we spent so much time with with my Assistant Assistant coaching staff in September and the team but more of the coaching staff of how we build this instead of saying to my we're where where are they all tonight whose busy season and then you didn't get the have those those meaningful times as they've taught me some of the NBA language all of these things. It's really you're more prepared for season. Then you probably were in college. John Your priorities in trying to understand what you needed to understand now and what of yours that you were gonNA. Bring that absolutely translated where you had to adjust and you said like the language of the League the verbiage the knowing once you get into an eighty two season the lack of preparation against you coming when you started to sort of you coached in Summer League and you had your staff together there. What were the first couple things where you said. I think this is the most important thing I've gotta understand. I got some advice from several people people on this is that this is a very transient. It's not as much as college really in some respects but you're you might get a trade in the middle of the year you you might get a guy that you only have seven days to thirteen days for training camp to get people's ready and you can't have a completely different language than the rest of the League. So what I try to do is change our language to. It's the same thing you know where. I called a bullet. They might call step up. What I call a pistol. It's aside ball screen and so I just rather than have fifteen guys changed in my language. I change their language but if they if they didn't have a name for it I'm using my old name because I personally had names for everything so that people could we could learn it. I think's a great way of learning they associate actions usually a story behind it and then they don't forget get it going forward. We would debate at several where we're going to call it because I would go okay. What did you call it. WHAT IS IT MEMPHIS call it. What did you call it here last year when I talked to my front bench and they'd probably give me three different name so I said well so it's not universal there. What fits bats best? What can we learn the best so it's well but that was the biggest thing. I think John Cleveland was not the first. NBA team you had talked to who had called through the years. Detroit situation was interesting a couple years ago because because number one you know you didn't have to move it was geographically but it was a very different team in a very different place very veteran laden laden with the cap like this was going to be a roster and Cleveland was different. If you wanted to build a program and teach cheech and maybe do it from the ground up. This was the one four that this was the most appealing again breath. I wasn't leaving a great place like the University of Michigan to go and just be an NBA coach. That was not the goal it was the right situation came along on that was really appealing to me and the other thing that was really appealing. Is You know I grew up in this the Buffalo Area Ben in Michigan. You know I've been in this rust. Belt Lake Ontario the chains I love it. I love it and my four children are fairly close by so. That was another thing if you're going to go to the NBA this. This is the situation but it was what was most appealing to it was this was we're not using the word rebel. We're saying this was like I make the comparison to rocket mortgage orange field. How's that place had good bones at grit tradition. It's just needed to make over in some areas and that's where we are right now. Where repurposing reinventing doing things remodeling our culture way. We're GONNA play the whole deal to really keep up with the Times other or college coaches guys who coached very long time in the college game have come to the NBA. There's been varying degrees of success like most NBA coaches. It's usually built around around. If you have really good players you win if you don't you're probably GONNA struggle but but other people though I think different coaches at different times shruggled with college college coaches and you and I think the coaches and I think you've seen this group that have come whether it's billy Donovan Brad Stevens Evens. Jay Wright is a coach who has had the opportunity may do it some day and you fit in this to me. The common denominator is you're coaches who understood that it is about the players weren't necessarily a celebrity and that's important in this league but I thank you. There's a different intrigue with this with you. In some ways I think the people it feels a little bit like an experiment because and I just think having and followed your career the whole way. I heard these things about you. At every every time you jumped up it would be well. He he you know John runs better stuff than everybody else else but he's not going to be able to recruit at that level. He's going to struggle with that and he's not going to and then you go to another level and then you go Michigan while he and then you're in the national championship game and and again in the final four and I think that's the question again wil John's style. You're coming in the league at sixty six years old. You're mostly guys came younger. It feels like people see this as a little bit of an experiment different than some of the others. Do you feel that no. I don't feel as bad till exact same way when how many people said when I left Lemoyne to go to Canisius. What what are you crazy? You can use the worst program they won five game you know also when we go to. Richmond and then West Virginia January like people were what did you do that and then I remember a really successful coach when we left West Virginia and we really had it going and and I had a very successful small college coach at that I tell you that was a stupid because Michigan's never coming back and I was like that's exactly where do it because you think it's still and so. I think that there's there's some things that just are so transitional every coach if they just follow them and we have some experience in rebuilding and it's it's built through coach a lot of coach being humble humble embracing the process getting everybody to understand. This is going to take some time. Everyone took time except Richmond Bridge. We we had a bunch of good seniors but we've you've done it before and we're GonNa do it again. It's there's no question in my mind and it was something that sixty six it was like I feel as good as I've ever felt in my life when you look at the next president of the United States either one of them could be seventy five years old. Those are demanding jobs to sixty six is young in many respects. This is far as boy. I'd I've tried to keep healthy. Keep up with the game and be very evolve as a coach valves as father evolved parent evolve love as a as a person. You have never been an assistant coach. John you came out wheeling Jesuit and seventy five you go to new faint high school. All you go to see if I knew Faint Highschool Erie Community College Nazareth for one year right right and you can attest. I'm not reading Nazereth Lemoyne for nine years yeah contentious for five years. Richmond four maybe four five years and then and obviously in West Virginia for five and Michigan for twelve always a head coach. What what is your blueprint is a coach because your your you're somebody that a lot of people whether it's your offense people WanNa emulate we were practiced today. Load of college coaches and people want to come in. You've always had people who wanNA come. Your offense is not in a book somewhere you don't hand out the John Beeline playbook or you've not sold your book. I don't know if it's written anywhere I think it's on on scribbled on chalkboards all over the east. What was it about having never been an assistant that maybe shaped you in a way that that worked for you..
The Cavaliers Just Stunned the Basketball World by Hiring John Beilein
"John B line is not staying in an Arbor reliant is leaving Michigan. And adding to the NBA where he's taking over as the new coach the Cleveland Cavaliers. He's the winningest coach in the history of the Michigan program para final four appearances in his twelve years there twenty thirteen in two thousand eighteen now he takes over a rebuilding project in Cleveland getting a five year deal with the Cavs ESPN analyst docket. I think that if I'm the Cavs. I would much rather have HIV line in some. I don't know guy. That's never really done a whole lot. Now, there's not a lot of guys in college that you can go to the NBA all that kind of stuff the peelings. Here's a great pamper. My son played form is great temperamental players ended development. The the rules of the game aren't going to hurt his style at all because rules are different very different. But I think it's a great gift of the Cavaliers? But as you will know, you guys will get some players if you don't that's a bad roster. And you may get some players if you if you're gonna make this work, no matter who the coaches, Dan with that being said, this is a big summer. A lot of free agency conversation how excited a player's going to be in the NBA to play for a coach while he's had a lot of success. It's been in college. It's interesting. I think that I am gonna change a little bit. A lot of players were always talking about got playing league for me to play with you. I think I think people have seen that's going to differ way. Look, let's be on if money talks if the Cavaliers have more money than somebody else. Go get who they want. But also city talks, and I couldn't personally I mean, I I'm a big fan of Cleveland. I love going there when I was coaching bowling green is just two hours away. But if I'm twenty two years old, I got pocket full of cash twenty five years old. I put cash I don't really Cleveland would be a destination. No matter who the coaches unless I'm LeBron I'm from there. So, you know, the guys that are truly going to make a difference probably gonna go to New York probably gonna go to LA probably gonna go to those cities, regardless. But I'm saying is as much as coaching can make a difference in the NBA, which you can some John. We'll make that difference. He will. He is a very good basketball coach on all sides. Offense defense transition. He is a perk. Perfect to handle all ages, older, younger whatever but come on. You got you gotta have guys in aging. Kevin love a hopefully for him developing Colin sex. And then who knows what you got in the middle between Tristan Thompson, and and the rest, and then you gotta hope you win the lottery you throw throw Zion with those guys. Maybe you got something but mandate like like, I remember when his was going to go the Cavaliers he desperately. All you wanna do is talk. Lebron James and see what the Brian James was thinking LeBron his people wouldn't talk to him. There's no Brown there. And you know, what if you can come in the same time as I'm Lehman, we really good thing for it'd be let in Cleveland is this a risk worth taking when you're a guy who's got an eight twenty nine to four sixty eight college record has been transformative at Michigan and your sixty six for jar. I think it's a absolute win win. I mean, you know, sixty six years old. He's leaving comfort sixty six five years. Let's say I don't know six seven eight million dollar cost of living. Cleveland's not bad. If you're going to do it. You do it. Now. That's it. Right. I mean, you're not gonna be offered this five years from now. So I I like it for both. I really do. I think John made the only choice that he could make it. In fact, he was going to leave. Now, if he wasn't gonna leave if he was married to Michigan. Then you obviously, don't even entertain it. But if you're thinking about it. And you sixty six five year deal. Let's go and John gets a five year deal to leave in and head to Cleveland. And yes. It was a headline about an MBA coaching higher. But are Stephen a Smith says? And you got job be Lana. Head coach for the Michigan. Wolverines is the new head confident Cleveland Cavaliers, no problem there. It's news. Here's my point. What the hell is the segment about it? Who cares? I'm John Williamson with the draft tomorrow that might be different. But since you announced this before we know whether or not the Cleveland Cavaliers going to have the number one overall pick which undoubtedly is going to be I on Winston in the upcoming NBA who gives a damn about the Cleveland Cavaliers the pros not there anymore. Kevin loved Sydney on his way out. Don't talk to that man by keeping them in Cleveland some someplace where he could compete for championship. He's a damn good player who the hell out this day.
