NFL show subscribed today wherever you get podcast and finally the Stanley Cup is set in the national hockey league the Tampa Bay lightning meet Dow Stars Game One is Saturday it's not too late to get a preview from locked on NHL locked on stars and locked on lightning local experts on the biggest stories it's the lockdown podcast network your team every day. You on the defensive side of things have defensive rating of ninety four. It is the best of anyone on this team other than Jackie off and I say that very specifically because when. They just thought about it's thought about in terms of. The. Big. The rebounding. The interior often but When I see is I see a number of perimeter defenders who are allowing you dies aged to reach the level that you have this year you being eighteen and four having the top overall seed. How much do you think that development and that edited quickness on the perimeter in sugar to? Another tremendous perimeter defender allows what happens on the inside to to to be to maximum effect. You know what? I think you know the defensive. Identity. Of US is. We just WANNA play so hard and make it hard for people. and I obviously I think that starts with you know the person that the guards put on the ball which. ultimately helps you know making the interior passes harder making the post after work harder for anything that they get in and obviously having to go against Asia the Caroline Caroline lettuces. Year to So I definitely think it's a lot about pride in in a lot about trust. for us in the Defensive End And we just WanNa make it hard because we know once we go south like where a team of pace we WANNA push, we want to run WE WANNA break down in that way, and so we take a lot of pride on that end Um starting from the guard on the perimeter and then obviously internally as well. When you think about what this team can be obviously, a championship is the goal of every player at at every time, but did you come in with that assumption I? I know that in the wake of lose not playing in the wake of Kelsey plum being injured do a lot of people who would Las Vegas to the side and I wonder whether that is something that has changed in your mind Great this team to me and I and I asked the context of I s Asia Wilson about it and she certainly thought that you'd have to be contenders but she said eighteen and four and the top overall seed as gone even beyond her steal and I just wondered how you thought about coming in. Ada for Sir I definitely thought that we could do. Some damage Obviously, we weren't sure how we're going to play out with playing every day in practice and and all of that with the scheduling of everything, and obviously we struggled with bodies in training camp. we knew that we weren't coming down here to. For Google excuse my language. We knew that you know we were gonNA come down here. We're GONNA come down here and play hard and compete and I think that we you know we've done just DAB movies also surpassed You know like she said like what we thought as far as you know being being eighteen and four we knew that they were gonNA be some bumps in the road. Obviously, we weren't going to win every single game, but we were going to talk to and so. It's cool to see you know from training camp. So now how far we've come in just A. Short span of two months and so we're we're excited about about what we can do. We're excited to be in this position, but we're not satisfied and that's I think the biggest thing is that okay yeah we put our vision but what are we gonNA do now? And what do you think emotionally used to be in the wobble like this? Having people like yourself having people. I'd Asia people who are business like on the court but clearly have that sense of fun and being able to keep a lighter emotional tenor from day to day out Kosh ignificant has that been in euro Ross testing. I think that's been huge I think that's been. One of the biggest. Thing. That's that's kept us going is our ability to? you know flip the switch sometimes and just. Be Groupie with each other and recognize that. Everything you know isn't serious all the time obviously there's a lot of. Stuff going on testing treatment you have practice and you have testing after year preparing for game shoot around like all these things that Philip your day.

So hard and it was just. One of those things that you need in time like this, where everything else in your day is planned and you just have a spur of the moment you know team gathering that ended up being. A refreshing in just. Fun and new and all that this ability to learn from each other. So it's been huge in this group has been. More than special. We've learned so much about each other and these two. Martha, I think that's why you see you know as reaping the benefits because we just we just enjoy being around each other enjoying learning from each other we enjoy playing with each other at the end of the day.

"To do this in Britain's to do this within. The level I think. Is Significant and you're putting up numbers that are not just as good as what is clearly already been hall of fame career. Your numbers are the best they've ever been. You know if you go by true shooting percentage jury efficiency is the best it's ever been your assist percentage is the best you've had since twenty thirteen and your total rebound percentages the best of your career as well. So I'm just using all of that as prologue to say, do you feel as if you are the best you've ever been as a player right now No I don't. I have a long way to go. And I feel like you know. You know you. Just deficiency just comes with experience in I've been lied on top of. Experiencing I, feel like she she. Knew twee in. You know I wanNA to be able to you know. Say More than twenty five minutes a game. Back. Do that especially in the playoffs to to. You know do those kinds of things and and be efficient ordinance. So There's a lot of things that I feel like I can work on but I don't feel like I'm nowhere near I need to be but. Also I don't know why people are surprised us. Well let me ask you this you. You're saying you know where you need to be this year, which is obviously scary prospect for anyone plane you. Come, playoff time trying to cover you defensively. Do you think you are a better player now than you even were for a decade in Atlanta and that's a decade where you were in Olympia as a decade or you're a five-time all-star. Do, think your game has improved even beyond where it went. Mentally yet. physically. A students have. Of course, not as quick and I don't jump as high my injury. In. There's certain movements that I still want to you know get down from the injury. I think I. Some things physically at probably in a kind of close to where I WANNA be. which would I have always loved about your game at the defensive end is your ability to read a pass and it's manifest itself. You're still percent. You're still percentage is three point six for your career one the very best ever done this in this game you're three this year. So despite Quickness issues that you're talking about that you wanted to continue to work on that have been reduced by your injury and recovery from it hasn't affected your ability on the court. Are you seeing the game differently after a year in does does your away allow you to the game in a different way than you did before? I WANNA say so your your way, you definitely have him. Thank. You know a lot of course but haters talking. I think it. Brings it brings a lot of humility. impassioned you know sometimes you have missed something. In order to combat better. What did you do? You missed it how did you get your basketball search when you were in play? I watched him a lot. You know continue to work on my game under different things like that. And show I understand you had this conversation with Bill Laimbeer and you decided that Las Vegas was the place for you to come. How challenging has it been though to relocate without relocating? You know to think that you were going to. Las Vegas. Physically only to have this season be something. That was totally different in terms of hellish oriented geographically. Yeah, it was weird because you know being in one team for such a long time but. I knew that in order for me to hike MICR I. It was hard for change so. I think that how'd you just beginning now got pretty used to the girls and You know everything. That this team has to offer, let's talk about some of your teammates who were really standing out this year, and obviously a conversation begins around Asia. Wilson you're obviously getting to see her up close in a different way than some of the other major candidates, but do you see her as an MVP candidate in this lead and and? You know obviously in years beyond but in twenty twenty as well. Yeah for sure definitely see her as. An MVP this year I think she's the MVP. I think that in Know She's GonNa. Leave for the next. Ten years. I, see a minimum of three. At least three. At three nights laying out, played a marker for her but certainly when the chief seems up for and in large art, this Las Vegas team is a bit different than when you originally signed on back back in the off season when it was attracted, list him beige replay obviously prior to the Tilles injury that sidelined TLC plum what is inches allowed a team that educated identity on the fly in many ways to be able to do it, and how much were you able to use your experience and your ability to take teams deep into the playoffs as a means to let less vegas understand what its identity ought to be. Sure. I think that. In nothing you know only think we still down are Indian of what type team the crazy part I don't think. You. Know allow teams even had time from this weird situation. We just have to current hurt and play but. From what I can see that Jimmy Augustine is you know You know inside out. Take the Asia..

"Is brought to you by built bar built bar because as we're facing your logo pandemic who wants to figure out how to make lunch and I am joined today by well. Let's say the once and again center for the Las Vegas Aces and that's Carolyn swords caroline. You have a perspective on things that not a lot of people have which is to say you've experienced retirement for all three months and you've been on the other side of it and I wanNA start there by telling our listeners. What did you learn about retirement? Well I For having me for small I think this has been a very unique time to say the least to have experienced a little bit of retirement but I was really enjoying my time in the front office that I can continue to stay with the aces and Stay connected to basketball. So now that I've kind of flipped back to being on the court and just kind of rearranging my goals a little bit and focusing on on the upcoming season so I might have to get back to you on how retirement more time to figure it out for sure but yeah. I mean I do wonder how hard was that moment to make that decision. And then if you take me through how you go emotionally just to get to that head space to being able to play once again. Sure so you know. I've been playing basketball since I was eight or nine years old so very much. A huge part of my life and You know I played at Boston College and played obviously in the WNBA has gone overseas. So it's been a way for me to really learn and grow and set goals and Explore and and it's been a huge part of my life and I did an internship with the bases in the after the twenty eighteen season Really looking at all the different elements of the business operations and and with really excited that that was a very enjoyable experience And so finding that there was still away to seek to basketball something that I love and especially at the WNBA which is So important and and You know just in a different way. it just felt like the right time. I don't know I think everyone experiences that a little differently and then. Kobe has obviously You know shaking things up a little bit and there was an opportunity to join me again. as a player and you know still loves basketball so it was something that. I was happy to do It's required a little bit of adjustment in terms of you know how been working out spending a lot more time running and doing some other things and now it's back to at very basketball focus you know explosives in aerobic activity So it's just shifting gears a little bit but Still very excited not continue to help the aces in this way so. I remember hearing about the internship and it was striking to me in February. How much you're going to be taking on from a front office perspective and I think it gives you an opportunity to pursue a lot of different paths after basketball whatever direction it would take. I I mean you know anything. From media. Relations was a part of it And frankly anyone who's ever interviewed. You know who'd be able to be a tremendous voice on that front but also up to and including working directly with the mascots and so. I I think it's important that we we dive real deep into that which is to say that when we first met you were with the New York liberty and the New York liberty have the Great Maddie The master eight and original WNBA. Mascot I might add the ACIS have to. They have buckets. They have miles the miracle flights bear. And so there's a lot that goes into creating a false identity there. What exactly was your work. Going to be wisdom `Scotch and and really can you speak to anything. You may have learned from Maddie specifically from your time in New York that you've taken to Las Vegas. That's a great question So when in the offseason players are usually Not In market because they're either overseas or it was great that this past off season we had. Usa.

"Which at times in the season last year when our offense gone a little stagnant? We miss that but I mean you can you can throw on an island can go to and there's not many players in that can do that So to your point Yes I think you know I. It's well on bills teams play with an attacking style of plied both defensively Both rebounding perspective and obviously on the offensive end. They're GONNA you know we're GONNA try and jam it inside. We're going to try and get foul calls and we're GONNA keep calling and wear teams down so I think that's no secret anybody. It's obviously a strength not a weakness to have list him. Beijing Asia Wilson Together. But when you drove down the numbers neither one was as efficient when the other one was on the toward at the same time I just. I wonder what you feel like you learned from your one of them plans that there were a lot of mitigating circumstances. Lose was obviously injured earlier in the year and and trying to make that all work is a challenge. But where where do you see at the margins ways to Let's say more Max Out what you're able to get out of the two of them together. Yay I mean. Look you hit on Liz. In in the beginning of the year but Asian also had an injury in the middle of the night it was. It was rare that we had two of them all together for an extended period of time and I think honestly the biggest thing is going to be the how much the slew of them have learned with each other. And you know talking to them off the off season. They can't wait to get back on court together. So it's it's really become You know a great hero and a great threat to have on both ends of the floor so you know I think we saw some things in the postseason at the end of the year. Never GonNa really help us but Fear to I point Would would much rather have the both of them in one of them and just I. I assume this is a matter of paperwork. Since we've seen her on social media calling season ticket holders and otherwise getting ready for the season but they're the percentage chance that lives doesn't return zero percent correct correct. Okay all right so we did that out of the way so your larger vision for this team. You guys play a certain way. And and it's entertaining to sell and seeing it in person is something physicality that goes a step beyond what anybody else is done. It's also obviously something that relies on especially this off season when you've made these changes a lot of getting together that is you're not getting the chance to do with all this uncertainty with the team. That goes along with it so I. I wonder how you go about planning for that. And whether that alters let's say what your immediate expectations ten in should be for what? This team is right away putting together a lot of new parts at the same time. Yeah and look I think the biggest thing is. Everybody has to be flexible right now. Right so what we saw was gonna be to setup season month ago. It's going to be different so you know all we can really do is is planned for whatever gets thrown at US And Bill Appropriately. But as far as expectations you know we're not gonNA. We're not gonNA lower any expectations due to you know extraneous factors that nobody can control all twelve teams are going through it so you know once a better idea of scheduling and planning and all of that We'll put our best foot forward and you know. Get our team to to where we need to be. But I don't think anybody wants go. You know. Lower any expectation bill. Bill had been talking about it being a three year plan on. I'm sure you've heard that even more than I did. And so that would make twenty twenty that year. It has a certain level of frustration. I would imagine over the fact that here we are. The team is built. You're putting all the parts together. Now you're dealing with that So I can. I can only imagine The difficulty in frustration as far as that goes But I do WanNa talk a little bit about Jackie on who? We're still determining. I feel like externally what she is in what she can be. I remember her back at Notre Dame. And you know Muffin. Mcgraw said something that raised a lot of eyebrows when she was a sophomore in college saying she could be the best player to ever come out of. Notre Dame figuring out what her role is. I feel. I is a critical part of that. What do you feel that you guys have learned? Having had her for a year. You know I think if you look at it right. She really did a unbelievable job of coming in as a twenty one year old and being handed the ball and saying hey go keep Kelsey flom killing me. Dry Lives Can Beijing Angel Wilson. Happy you know. That's not an easy thing to do. But you know I think the biggest thing and we and we knew it going in and we just have to keep harping on it is for her to realize when it's time because there's a whole nother dear for her that she can level up to an and people can't stop after the Straw. She's fast set by Joel. She's one of those players that can get down on the floor and nobody can stop for one on one so I think the biggest thing for her is going to be at times to be a little less selfish for not Really embrace the scoring component of game Because their she's just gotTa get it out of her but I watched her play on the USA through three for this year. And I was really really happy with what I saw She's she's taking a big stat and You know knock on Wood Hopefully we get you know started sooner rather than later but I had to have had a really solid year to allow this players. There's a big difference between year one year jail and that's taking it really seriously from her on-court were to nutrition to waste. We'RE GONNA have to game so I couldn't be more thrilled with with where Jackie Dad and honestly it's just Further you know assuring that we made one heck of a classier by taking here at one you know to have her in place alongside a Kayla. Mcbride it's interesting in the sense that there does seem to be a fair amount of overlap And I don't just mean in terms of their collegiate pedigree but also where Jackie name is going and so when you think about win now. Twenty twenty bouncing. Nowadays the future does jagged. Lucien for you up to lean a little bit less on Kayla McBride. How how does Kayla figure into that? 'cause you go back and you look at what she did in twenty nineteen wasn't just making an all star team but she put up the the best defensive Season of her career was something that was already a solid part of her game So I'm curious. How that balance words in your mind when you think about those two on your roster and what you get from them. Yeah I think. I think they're still actually complement each other. Pretty well rather than overlap Keilor's dead. I three baller as you said as really really learned to play defense over a couple of last couple of years whereas Jackie is a little bit more of a utility player. But you're different spots on the floor And and more a you know you know. How are you there on here? Yes yes outside. Right Just more of an athletic Competitor on both sides for And so in that way. Is that almost more useful in a starting lineup? In an offense where there's already so much demand for the ball whether it's Asia we know whether it's angel whether it's Liz. Do you need to find ways to combine lineups with them with players? Who aren't necessarily used to being option one two three. I don't think we look at it like optimum two or three. I think we look at it. Like we've got our group of Five six seven eight players that we're going to bat with and you know whoever's getting off is gonNA keep keep playing on and that's rotation and we're trying to win a championship that crew made sense to me. The other part is Jessica. Hamby and talking about her evolution and and you know among the most improved players To be sure in this league over this period of time is she simply the luxury you get to keep on the second unit in present. You're crazy mismatch for for teams from the Second Quarter. A Games when you to neither You know utilize that to catch up or more likely. Extend your leads. Yeah I mean it's not good at the beauty with Erica. Is She can play multiple positions right. You throw a match up to three can put her in either front court spot and she's got enough of a motor. She's got enough physicality where she can pretty much guard anybody so she is You know a luxury to have off the bench and she'd be a luxury to have in the starting lineup. So either way no matter you know what you play on any given night. She had time this year. She started to you at times last year. She came up bench And I I. I assume that'll be the case. This COMING SEASON. Also just depending on how the season goes on and so forth and so on but Yeah I mean her. Jane continues to grow. She'll continue to tell you that she's a three baller. And I accept that that part of her game to grow as well. It's she has some evidence to support it but it reminds me a lot of what Natasha Howard was for. Those Minnesota teams especially later on their rain. Well before I let you go. Let's leave on a on a positive note so when you think about the season ahead and you think about what's to come what. What's the first thing that most excites you? What's that that image? That comes back to you most often. When you envision all of us being passed this awful moments in time you know. I think there's a certain beauty and seeing all the players come together to each other for the first time You know a locker rooms beautiful thing and you know you go through highs and lows during during the season but then when you get back together robbery there so on day when we camped and all the players around with each other. That's when we'll know we're back so you know. I really look forward to that day. Well I think we're all looking forward to that day and you've put together one hell of a team to match up against the others when that happens so Dan thank you so much for your time thank our..

"Are the only team. I can think of in any professional sport that I'm begging to make a move for the sake of making moves. Just do something. Just do something to prove you know how to do it. Just like it'd be like if suddenly you're watching the masters and leg the longshot. Champion suddenly decides. He's going to play in the masters and like all the only thing. I know how to do is swing with the driver. That has rebar on it so I can hit the ball nine hundred yards and they can't do anything else but I'm GonNa try to actually go. Everyone's like Oh keep an eye on that. That's kind of where I am. Otherwise he is still enough for me. Let's move over to the quick. The main move here is that they pick up Daniel Robinson. We love her. And you have a I haven't entity I'm going to go ahead and keep this the same in the main reason for that is. I don't know where she's getting minutes. Kayla McBride Kelsey Plume Ngoma Khatri Epiphany Prince. Jackie Young. All in your back court sugar rodgers on your back court. I have no idea where she's going to pull off the quality minutes. Now if you want to say that this is a bump in terms of chemistry and locker room support and leadership. Maybe but I just don't see this upping much because you kind of very heavy. I don't know what else you were going to do. So that's where I stand. I'm sticking to the you gave them in a are you sticking with that. I think it's largely a locker room move. And that's that's totally fine with me having Carolyn swords and Daniel Robinson. The same team means that you're going to have like as stable locker room as you can have with with. Liz Cameras present so I think this team is is ready to make a run giving them an A. based mostly on the strength of the Khatri work but yet no change here that works. I just wish they demand mood. That'll meet their basketball team better. That's just kinda how but I get it on that standpoint. I just not enough to change the great. Let's move forward of the sparks. They for the most part were home on their moves because a lot of their pig moves. That already happened. And then right as we were getting ready to hit record we find out that Simone. Augusta's will be spending her final season in the WNBA in Los Angeles with the sparks spurning links. Who she's played with for Decades University of his fourteen years in her career announcing it's our final season and that she's doing so in Los Angeles the first thing I'm GONNA ask for retired. Grades Logan do you. Do you clue into anything from all of that. Is there anything actually juicy about this move or is this really just business about a basketball team? It's probably just business but it. It is if phrase it to you this way if three months ago as Steve next year. Alanna beard isn't going to be on the sparks anymore. It's going to be weird and Simone. Augusta's is going to be on the sparks. An IT'S GONNA be weird. Those are two things that are just hard to like. That's just goes against a decade of what I know about that team but I don't think there's any I think the sparks liked to beat the links links to be sparked but I don't think there's really that beef is kind of it's it's not extinguished but it's a Lo- it's a slow burn right now. It's not really a raging inferno. There neither team has. I don't know I don't see it being a petty move it all. Yeah that's the thing I can't believe it as as a petty move other than to say. Listen it's my last season. I want one last chance at a championship. And that's an organization. I know I can respect because I've gone to war with them enough and they just don't feel that that's what's happening in Minnesota because if that was the case. My longtime teammate. My immoral probably is on the roster. And I I see more that way than to say. There's I'll put it out. There aren't locker room issues in Minnesota. I don't think there's chemistry issues there. I would even venture to say that. I don't know that Cheryl Miller is going to come out with some vaulted frustration. I could be wrong. I I see this is a business move that said picking up Simone Augusta's adding some additional moves here. You had them at an a minus. Where do you have them now? This doesn't really move the needle at all for me. I think it's a good personality locker but as you said I think it's more about her trying to be in a good situation in her final year and if anything if links fans Wanna read into this any degree all it says is that maybe the links are in more of a rebuild than previously thought. Yeah I see a lot where we heading in that direction. I I had them in and giving them an a minus and honestly it's because I should have given them an a minus last week as I have reevaluated that I don't know that the teller move is that much of a needle mover from eight. To a minus. It's not that I'm not being that drastic. I don't think it's that much of a needle mover as initially thought and I agree with you in that. I don't know if it's A. Augustus necessarily moves sing a lot. That's really good veteran leadership on the team. That's stupid with veteran leadership. So I just yeah but you know. Honestly it's intriguing in a Lotta ways for a lot of the stories. We'll see how that plays out in terms of basketball shifts much. We ironically move right over into the links. We both have them as incomplete. We should probably finally give them grades. In the last week they lose Daniel Robinson and as we just discussed they lose on Augusta's. Do you agree for them now? And if so as as I said they're gonNA rebuild. It's tough to grade because they're actually according to their plan that they're trying to execute their actually succeeding Degree is not like there. I don't know it's not like they're failing to put together a championship roster. Like what they're trying to do right now is to get younger in a mass assets in in figure out what they're gonNA do with aging stars and. I think they're doing well a bet that said. I'm kind of greeting everyone based on. Did they improve their roster in our the becoming more of a contender? Minnesota's not doing that. So I'm GonNa give them a D D Gotcha to make this quick. When I graduated Indiana last week my main call was have you tried. Have you actually putting forth any effort to show that you're trying to improve the roster? I looked at the activity I said no and I gave them an F. And as I look at this I have no reason to believe any different from the Minnesota Lynx. I unless there's hey we're gonNA work that waiver wire real hard or Hey. We still have a weird list of unrestricted left. Maybe we have a shot at them right now. I'm looking at this going. I don't have any evidence to show that there's been pushed must much push to bolster this. I don't know if it's a crap Myanmar's again so we lose our. You know we lose our confidence here. And that's a bummer. I don't know but if that's why given the NF. I can't not do it. For Minnesota Minnesota Senator for me. That's very it's it's I put myself in corner and I'm going to be true to New York from what I can see hasn't really made any discernible moves from what I can see here. I might be wrong but I look through. As many trackers is that good. I haven't seen anything. So is there any reason why you're great change for Missy plus a not really other than that? I think I've given like three or four c. Pluses now today. But that's okay. They yeah same same grade. It's Yeah I have from New York and it's GonNa stay that way. Let's move into Phoenix Real quick. The last three teams really haven't had much intense movement Phoenix in that three-way Trade Pickup Jessica. Brilliant and the coffee. I I haven't a minus you have a B. Where do you see Phoenix now? So I think I have the medicine you have the B. and I only know that because I I was just thinking maybe I needed to give them a B. Plus I think I was a little bit little bit high them. The first time we greeted. I think losing bonner is a bigger deal than gaining scoured. Dick Smith I hope I phrased that in a way that makes us like the. The you know what happened happened to dig is nice but brilliant and coffee are nice additions players that have been in the League but again I. I hate to say this. But they're not really needle movers for me. It don't make me believe in the sun anymore than in the mercury anymore than it did before so I think it'd be plus a solid effort. I'm I'm taking the from plus a lot of interest because I think they add a little bit of defensive depth and they just add a little bit of general bench depth. I think now you're looking at a Phoenix team that that quote unquote eight person. Playoff style roster bolsters self. A little bit better where I can't move it too. Much is just so much of whether this year's going to be explosive or a dud is what we're going to damage. Rossy when she comes back and I that's just undetermined at the moment in my opinion. So that's Phoenix Seattle storm essentially. Don't make any real moves you had them as a add them as a B. Plus any reason to change their. Yeah this is probably my most unfair grade of the report card. But it's basically this is probably the only team or at least the team that can most say you know what we look at our oster and we got your back. We're good. We're ready to go so I don't think they need to make a lot of moves. I am not changing their grade. Even though I initially thought I was going to actually thought about blowing them down to a B minus because honestly because Bree Stewart is is now playing for you MC catering Berg as opposed to taking additional rest. Obviously that calls back to her playing overseas and getting injured last year. And that's putting at risk and I'm not changing it because I actually think that that was a good move for Stewart. Because she is on a very deep team in Russia where she can put in minimal minutes and get her leg back up to speed and potentially put in some licks that generally people come back from injuries due in the first ten to twenty games of the regular season and she's actually trying to get ahead of that a little bit and if it goes well and if she maintains health that actually could help her get back to form quicker and in Seattle than originally planned. So I actually do like the move. It's right now. It's as low risk of move. This type.
Las Vegas Aces sign Danielle Robinson
"Let's move over to the quick. The main move here is that they pick up Daniel Robinson. We love her. And you have a I haven't entity I'm going to go ahead and keep this the same in the main reason for that is. I don't know where she's getting minutes. Kayla McBride Kelsey Plume Ngoma Khatri Epiphany Prince. Jackie Young. All in your back court sugar rodgers on your back court. I have no idea where she's going to pull off the quality minutes. Now if you want to say that this is a bump in terms of chemistry and locker room support and leadership. Maybe but I just don't see this upping much because you kind of very heavy. I don't know what else you were going to do. So that's where I stand. I'm sticking to the you gave them in a are you sticking with that. I think it's largely a locker room move. And that's that's totally fine with me having Carolyn swords and Daniel Robinson. The same team means that you're going to have like as stable locker room as you can have with with. Liz Cameras present so I think this team is is ready to make a run giving them an A. based mostly on the strength of the Khatri work but yet no change here that works. I just wish they demand mood. That'll meet their basketball team better. That's just kinda how but I get it on that standpoint. I just not enough to change the great.

"All right welcome back to the show it is. the biggest a baby on a Wednesday tomorrow by the way we're gonna have Michael of an ID not feeling too good today so he'll be joining us on the air tomorrow Mike Babcock from TMZ sports will be with us as well and we'll have a few surprises for you try to get bill Laimbeer to come out of this tomorrow looking good look I could probably get bill speaking of bill Laimbeer. so as we mentioned before the break the Las Vegas aces. were in action yesterday Kelsey plum had the basketball four seconds left for the aces down to and I believe she was somewhat body checked whatever it was she lost her balance most officials will be ninety percent of officials will call that a fall during the game but when there's a couple seconds left to go as we all know there's an unwritten rule I've been an official for twenty years unless it's a hard fall let's you know for sure but it affects the shot you can't make the call but I'm gonna tell you that situation absolutely one hundred percent effective the shot JD do you agree what was that. della donne Mister Mister shower like five seconds left so they can base got the rebound gave us a plum plumb drove pretty I mean she she drove pretty quickly and she was rather on the free throw line she jumped up to take a shock and della donne came back and told us about six five you know six five to about she she's a she's a big girl because the bombs on a big she's five foot seven five foot eight effected the shot della donne definitely hit or body it does it did affect a shot right and they should of had the opportunity when that game and but I I do think that the aces looked like the better team to be no one person that I was unimpressed was list can base she's kind of sick she's not re fleet of foot she misses a lot of way of she's very slow defensively I think that she's probably I don't think that she gives them the best chance to win to be completely honest with you I prefer Asia Wilson as as their big yeah I'm not a big can beige fan I've made that for. I mean I'm saying as far as killing the game we really discussed about that not to talk about that well listen we don't have to break down the game but I'm I'm talking about what it feels I'm listening to some people in town some people that actually cover the team I don't know why. and they would lead you to believe that it wasn't a fall. and then they're criticizing bill Laimbeer for not taking a time out that could have exceeded the ball with four five seconds left I don't have a problem with the knot called a time out he tried to call yeah and if you did try to call time out that that's possible and granted that's possible but I'm not gonna criticize a guy that's a former W. NBA coach of the year who's won championships I'm not going to do that because billing beers done a fantastic job okay. that was a fall. simply put now does that mean the ace would won the game now but I think plan will probably made both free throws. don't know I mean she's an eighty eight percent free throw shooter I get frustrated chances are pretty high should be about I get frustrated when we talk about officials. because we shouldn't be. now W. NBA officials are not NBA officials many of them have tried to be NBA officials many of them are not good enough. a lot of these officials in the WNBA or former or or a lot of them are college officials for for women's division one the officiating in the WNBA I I've seen it first hand a bit early but it's terrible okay it's absolutely terrible. and we talk a lot about the you know the Vegas golden knights of what took place in the playoffs last year against San Jose was a travesty make no mistake about it they stole the series away from the Vegas golden knights that stuff can't happen post season you're gonna make mistakes during the regular season things are going to happen mistakes are made you can live with that you hope it doesn't happen these types of mistakes that cost teams games whether it's the Vegas golden knights or the Las Vegas aces it can't happen in post season these are supposed to be your best officials whether it's the W. MBA or a high school game when you're in post season it is supposed to be your most competent officials I understand that officials make the stakes it happens all the time you can live with that not with four five seconds left to go in the game not in the NHL playoffs in a must win situation. when you call a five minute major and it's five on three you can't make mistakes like that. and this if mistakes like that to happen that they cannot go back out there post season. do you agree I mean it can't stuff like that just can't happen. so this is not over for the asus don't get me wrong I mean they can come back and they can win tomorrow and type the series absolutely I think it is a very even evenly matched right I think they actually have the advantage if you watch the game last five or six minutes the mystics made five or six shots kind of off balance and they they were they were they can pretty much make Evan they're throwing in yeah the asus missed a lot of laughs they look better offense women now the other mystics didn't turn the ball over the very much but athletically I prefer the aces over the mystics I think that labor has the edge as a coach as well I think the key here is can they shot I think she turns the ball over too much she does not have soft hands she fumbles the ball lot and when you look at her statute will say oh my god she scored fifteen points and ****. should nineteen twelve yeah right when you see stats like that all my god she had twenty three points and eighteen rebounds there's up while what amounts okay watch hold on watch the whole game because if you watch the whole game in a you know with with Liz. she makes a lot of mistakes she misses a lot of easy shots in the reason why she's going points and grabbing rebounds it is because of health policy issues six foot eight it's you know it and when I look at as well so I say to myself that is an athlete now she's going to get better she still very young. she is an athlete she has unbelievable skills I show has great hand eye coordination doesn't lumber exams can beige lumbers up and down the exactly so you agree with what I'm I think yeah yeah she's kinda Caroline sources she's more of a six or seven down to me obviously she she's at a dollar a career but I think Kelsey poem is the most improved player probably the WBA this year how she's starting is beyond you said Ireland really really great third year she needs to do a little bit better protecting the ball few too many turnovers but she's a fence there's a reason why she was the top scorer in college basketball I mean she's she's no longer in the dress she is a phenomenal player and and and and and she's fun to watch the team is fun to watch Asia Wilson's gonna get better but again I I think the key to this series of camp bottom line is can be just needs to be better at anomaly that whoever wins the series I believe wins the championship and if the aces be domestics out there the WBA champions in my opinion ball will have to wait and see what happens but interested to see game two tomorrow night again will try to have building beer on the show tomorrow as well joining us on the line right now he's our WNBA specialist on just getting. is we call him Mister X. the Hollywood conservative in the reason why gone that he is a long time Hollywood producer made a lot of great films out there in Hollywood any also happens to be a Donald Trump supporter isn't it true Mr acts that you were a big W. NBA fans I'm not sure what the most offensive whether the fact that you guys were talking about W. NBA or the fax your your call answer guy not only called me by my name not Mister acts but he called me by the wrong name. layers of. and and and if they do you know was insistent on him on on you know yeah if you go down a little I would I would probably rather watch paint dry on my ceiling minute of you all that's me and that's fine honestly Mister X. it isn't it isn't that bad and if if the aces make the finals and what is it one of the games is in Vegas I'm gonna invite you you can stay at my place we can go watch a game Mr why you so why are you so mean this morning these women are playing so hard you know. we will. really much of a question. on the phone. baby that go along with being a trump supporter well I mean I. eating babies might have gone too far but I I agree with everything else we actually have actually never gone over neonatal cannibalism before yeah looks like. today yeah I will do that another day only it's a good idea okay so you know we we did literally two hours on gun control and probably took about eight hundred calls during that time frame but again I have another issue with title trump. you can disagree with better Roorkee wants to take all your A. K. forty sevens away I don't think that was the right appropriate thing to say however I understand why he said it it's emotional for him he's talked all the victims families he wants to get something done you can just this policies but Donald Trump goes on social media earlier today any calls but a dummy I mean is that really is that really help the political discourse is that gonna help bring people together or solve any issues when it comes to gun control. the nand gate. all I can say for trump is that he says here and probably watches the democratic debates where I've never seen such a tree all from these clowns toward it the the sitting president and disrespected I mean the amount of abuse that this guy taking you can think whatever you want about it like I I II I'm not deter necessarily dependent on the decision is made but I think I think he's justified in telling the guy to tell me there's a lot worse things that could be said and a lot of worse things that are said about him by the left so no I don't think he's out a line like calling somebody a dummy I just I just thought it was low brow I thought he can but on a more specific better insult than that I was impressed. I mean I expect more from drugs. hold on a second Mister acts let me excellent explain your or a first of all is far as what battles comments about taking all of your assault weapons away a mandatory by back I wouldn't call that dumb I would say it's just not going to happen it's not necessarily logical in a perfect world I would like to see that happen I would like to see all these is so that's okay so we agree so it's not necessarily dom but better work is still an idiot but that that that has a you know just talking about this issue this specific issue and that's why we call them done you know if you want to say well he's dumb because of blah blah blah blah I'll listen to you I'm not a better work fan I would never vote for the guy you know I'm not I'm joking in some ways but of course politicians shouldn't be calling each other thank you if if trump wanted to dish you know dispute his whatever you know express his opinion about this or say that you disagree with that he should have come up with a you know well crafted and intelligent Jack with regard that's only you know but all I'm saying and I maintain date he is not the only guilty party here I would say a lot of the left calling it might not be in collieries. and also it's like what. this call him and not see. a mean Wachter Hollywood and ask any famous actor that's on the left and I guarantee I mean of course is going to be a lack. in all fairness Elizabeth Warren did call him a fascist okay but there's there's constantly a fascist the ****..

"That's hard wind today and I think I woke up to a text from your that said throw your house on Free Money Pittsburgh large land but big. Ben went down big down but Mason Rudolph came in and he didn't play badly through for tonight. He's plays out but he didn't play bad at all. At no way I would crap'll Rudolph's performance. He actually look pretty decent but they're up thirteen ten. They throw the pick it actually wasn't Rudolph's fault and then from they're they're playing from behind and the steelers are never going to win that game but they squeak out a win and a win is a win will say that forecasting like. I'll never knock a win but I will use the way teams win games to look at and forecasts the rest of the season they squeak by the bengals are God awful and then they squeak by the steelers lers even though it's an east coast without their starting quarterback and and not I just think eventually they're lock is GonNa fall out if you think I think the cardinals are decent enough to beat them at home. I think that like you said the niners decent. FBI them home. They have a tough schedule. I'm calling the seahawks acuity. I think they missed the playoffs else even though they're Tuna Jack I think that's it. I think oh we stole a ball. I'm behind India. I can't even see it wait. I don't know what just happened in this game but I think someone who's hit a half court shot to take the lead with five seconds left and I don't even know why she sean. I God wasn't it Jack. Yes we just shot. A half court. Shot with five seconds left no way we could steal. They're running around in the back court to to try dribble the clock out. They throw a pass. We intercepted and I guess she thought the clock was running out and she shut up with five hundred com. Yeah there's four point eight seconds left where other than get the ball. They have a chance to win it. Oh my God she just caught it took one dribble and thought Clark time was Robin. outages went in anyway. What was your question happened for. May still have court shy. Why did she shoot that dude. I have so many people blowing up my phone that I that I told about this future and Oh oh God in Las Vegas Okay anyways. What were we talking about. Evan Evan Jon Gruden is taxing us like hello like we're recording the POD. We can't be bill. Lamb beers losing his mind in God's name just happened. What are we we were talking about cuties and legit another one. I want to get to the Buffalo Bills Cutie or legit. They moved to two and our who rode wedge it now. You can't call call every team legit. I haven't caught everyone I the jury's still out on the forty niners but said this last week on the pot. I said that I think the bills could look around could mess around with a very easy schedule in their favor and maybe contend for a playoff spot. Are they allowed to make the playoffs no now you're looking at them home. In in their home opener next week against Cincinnati like could easily be three enough. Yes they can go to three now with one of the best with equally one of the best defense in the heart the definition initiative of acuity like Josh you put a good scheme on him and you get a decent offense in that seems getting smoke right but I'm looking at games that they can easily win the titans the redskins the browns the dolphins the Broncos like they can find a way to scratch way at nine wins this year and it's just a matter of what is that what does that cut off the second wild right right so you have them playoff legit but not like they. They wouldn't make noise in the playoffs. No no no no no but hey for buffalo making the playoffs is a big another cutie legit that might interest. You is the Dallas Cowboys. I mean I mean look. They've looked really good. They have a strong defense and they have. I mean Calamar calling. Those places looked unbelievable. I mean any fear for the like I had them. You don't I'll get into this in the next five seconds. Hold on I. I'll start with my on a quarter three. Let's that's no. That's it. It's onto the Senate is all right so just to give me march on Washington onto your someone who we play Washington then all right well. It was go run but if you're new to the to the program we bet on the aces preseason became. Mr became our WMBA team. It was a single elimination quarterfinal we just hit a half court shot to win and if we win the snap back Fan Williams because we have a lot of money riding on AC so go aces when we play we play on Tuesday guy so we'll recap on on on the Thursday pod hopefully with a w. camp belief that cowboys have looked unbelievable. Their offense looks great. They're playing defense ons like I think they can contend for the division listen. I'm going to leave my bias out of this Dallas Cowboys. I really feel that in your heart that hurts to say now that was pulling the Dallas. Cowboys are really good football altium that being said they are the Dallas cowboys so am. I worried absolutely when you say that. What do you mean because in recent years. I they've actually been I mean they've they've made the playoffs over you guys. They've won the division over you guys. Dax WanNa Tana game so when you're sign their the Dallas cowboys are you only referring to the playoffs or he actually referring to regular season. I mean the combination of the two. I just know that in general what what can go wrong will. We'll but listen. The Dallas cowboys have a very good defense. The offense look good so far but I'm you can't make this Jack there definitely legit but you know what it comes down to with me in the Dallas cowboys. They won the division. Washer so where we play. I think it's Atlanta tonight and then Seattle The Dallas. Cowboys are playing. I play schedule and playing the rams and the saints dates so that's two games right there. That really makes a difference so if we go one on one verse them. That's all you can really ask for. Thankfully our division is godawful after the cowboys so ones all you can ask for and I think that should be able to do it and have us when the division but douses definitely a team to look to and I really be happy if we moved on from this conversation I won last just because I'm curious your thoughts on these on on this team. The chargers are sorry actually pretender cutie or legit another to not you gotta get all the tuners greenback flacco wait to get them I'm hoping I'm open the Broncos win so we can talk trash on the bears but we're recording while these games are ending so abe to go watch the game so packers moved to now they come out hot twenty one nothing and then. Rogers Rogers doesn't score they show like Rogers Leflore. They're kind of they're kind of fighting Vikings fight back. They probably would want it wasn't for Kirk cousins being absolutely cousin presence is so fun to bet against man. Let me tell you he is just you look over his box score. At one point. It's like four fifty eight yards and a touchdown sean just like something about kirk cousins being kirk cousins is just like makes you all warm and fuzzy inside the second. I saw him walk into Lambeau in a green jacket ingold pants who does kirk cousins thing he has. He can throw another team like he is. The I also knew that the packers were Wanna now and we know how the Tros Kirk cousins is historically against teams over five hundred so that was already against him but in terms of the packers. What what do I think about them. I think they're going to win the division and I don't necessarily think that that will make them a really really strong team but I just think that ah the teams around them like the bears I mean do I need to go on about them. We know how you and I've Laco flacco just threw a Ben Roethlisberger San Antonio Tonio homes dime to Emmanuel Sanders reviewing right now should stand It'll cut the game. They need an extra point or they can go to thirty seconds left. I'm hoping they lose by the end of this. The broncos are on the field. Maybe there anyway the bears. I don't even talk about them so really we're just looking at Green Bay at the Vikings. I think we can both agree to spike name a quarterback in the NFL where if you had the weapons of the Viking so Davin feeling and and what's his name and and then you had the defense of the Vikings like that could take the broncos gone for two. What are the what these teams are going to in week. Two FLACCO obviously gets a delay a game on the two point conversion do you do you do that because he's the most epic is the most epic quarterback ever. He's now going to push back five yards yards in kick the extra point don't you yeah but now the extra point to me five year. It's a thirty six yard. McManus on the field like flacco is my I favored quarterback because he is so funny like he had six points against the bears all game and then to mineral goes seventy five yards throws an absolute dimes nine and then when you think he's Kinda turned. The corner gets a delay a game when they're going for the win which should be the I'd say the during favor because now McManus is GonNa kick the extra point. You know how how are aid kicking in so what was your question about the Vikings weapons okay so if you give them the weapons plus the defense instead they have what quarterback in the NFL makes them like super bowl or playoffs. Cousins is like you so bad. He takes away from any any PAT. Mahomes Carson Wins Matt Ryan. I'm saying I'm saying I'm saying not the elites. Obviously I'm saying like anyone below. McMahon is blow it. I told you ope flag on the play holy crap. This is a wild game. I'm you like like if Stafford's on that team Stafford Stafford just the Go-to who like average quarterback when you can't really think of the elite of the elite but like the battle the bad. Where do you find yourself. You Find Yourself at Matt. Stafford Cabrera just went off-side trying to block an extra point McManus shanks anyway. Staffer is a guy that you just like. You never know like him. The Calvin was a special connection. Just because Calvin was a freak nature. See a think that in how many years Matt Stafford hasn't really had that great weapons Marvin Jones and Golden Tate as S. his best weapons has never had a running game so you put Stafford on the Vikings in. You're looking at a way better team. Obviously he'll find a way to shoot himself in the foot one way or another but I mean he is the king of the fourth quarter comeback. He is the king of the fourth quarter comeback the only reason I'm pausing you right now. 'cause bears went off offsides which means the broncos are back on the field gun for two FLACCO converts. We can trash the bears they'll be. Owen to flacco drops back. Quick look look coroner dot it. Oh into sorry. Shine shine was left thirty seconds trubisky. Oh my God I'd snap back Fam. It's Jack. I'm popping in here to Addison. We recorded the Pod as you know when even I thought that the Broncos are being the bears. I'm the biggest clown in America so.

"Twenty eight of the snapback sports pod were recapping. Nfl Week to who stock went up who stock went down on a little Monday mailbag from the snapback Fam- and much more so let's get into it. It's it's got to win. A football game offers football talk. They get into a well first. Let's do the proper. I'm your host. Jack Settlement for the snapback sports snapchat channel with me is healed span you you weren't willing to report on the Mike. I know you gotta be up early. which is a bummer for the content but we can? At least I mean we're not going to preview the game because the people on here but thoughts heading into the game. I've been waiting no day foe Sunday. I wo- I cited. You said you don't Wanna a previous. I won't go into my rant but I I'm not nervous yeah. You're very confident right. I just think if you look at both of our rosters like we're clearly the better team with they have great weapons like just like we do obviously but Doug Peterson three zero against the Falcons in his time in Philadelphia. They have a trash Ashley offense trash line but just let's just see how the cards are dealt. I think that boy am I taking Atlanta Atlanta at home that they're one strength. Is your guys one weakness so we'll see how much that plays into it but when should be good today so I think wants his rounding into form. I saw today him and Agar had the fourth most touchdowns per connection since when start applying for the eagles with not with Alshon say Hagel are definitely not definitely not accurate. Let's start with up and down where where each of US picks one player and I'm going to be on the downside this week because I was up last week. You start who stock rose. It can be a team player any Noah Jack. I'm in a good mood because the eagles haven't let me down yet. I still have them. Look forward to be overconfident about some. It'd be nice to nice to you and give an honest just opinion not a not a biased opinion because you know how I feel about your squad but you know who stock after these especially these first two weeks but also this week in particular Baltimore Ravens Tight End Mark Andrews he has just been unbelievable for the Ravens as if he's Lamar Jackson security blanket at least nine targets the first two games over one hundred yards in each outing a touchdown each outing. I mean it makes sense when you think about it right the linebackers on the opposing defense. They're all all the warriors are about project is. GonNa Throw is Iran. That's where all the attention toward and that leaves the middle of the field open for a tight end and Mark Andrews has been filling in that role as their number essentially number one receiver on the Mars like most trusted weapon. Hollywood round had another good game today but mark Mark Andrews after these first two I think he's just reliable from here on out because defenses are so concerned about Lamar and that just opens up everything for the tight end Mark Andrews Stock Doc Hollywood up honestly everyone the ravens right now but I I know beat you beat the exact Hartnell and the squeaked out against the car is my we did we discuss all wins in the NFL are wins and I'm excited because we go to Kansas City next week and we'll get a really good taste of everything everything but the thing is it's more about Lamar being accurate like it was third in certain eleven or something to ice the game and we threw a deep ball to the Hollywood dot dimes right so like that was like the one play the game I saw yeah. I was really just scoreboard watching that game but that was an absolute absolute dime clinched a game so as much as the cardinals is the dolphins. It's more about the throws so I'm really excited for next week so stock up on mark. I appreciate that pick. You could've gone Abie because they said they were. GonNa feed him. He he actually only ended up with a few catches. Obviously scored the touchdown. He burned the corner one and should've had a second in Todd Brady threw for two touchdowns which is funny because the Martha for five and everyone said Oh but it's the dolphins so go to baby go radi did Brady did did run for one day. He sneaked one in yeah. He's a marketing get the rushing touchdown against that's the thing though about ABC like he saw game four for fifty seven and a touchdown was also targeted eight tenths only fifty percent of the on his wife want one was should have been a touchdown so like if you look back could've been five for seventy five and two touchdowns. Matt looks a lot different as a bad brady threw but stock down and I'm going back to Thursday Night Football Cam Newton. I mean like like soul-searching. It's almost career could be over like if if out if he has no willingness to run the ball it neutralizes him because that's my biggest worry with Lamar. Is that now that we see. He can do the ball. He can't quit running. The running opens up the passing and he's not a pass first guy cams missing throws that are just like I mean it's crazy you missing him by miles of stock down is Carolina another teams. Cham Cham in my opinion are we on Andrew Luck Watch for cam new in like he said in his his press conference that he has to look himself in the Mirror in that outfit soul-searching needs to look himself Andrew Luck Retirement Watch. I don't think he's retirement watch because you know whatever he scored two touchdowns like there's alignment and selling the League Joe FLACCO still in the league like there's some really bad quarterbacks still in the League which always amazes me how there's thirty two quarterbacks in the whole world plan in the NFL between the ages of twenty to forty and or forty five and Brady's case and we we can't find like like there's like fifteen good quarterbacks and by the time you get eleven. It's like you're stretching. I mean it's all relative because you're talking the elite of the elite versus the Mitchell trubisky nice now but like how God like flacco own I can get started on a true best way. I got to interrupt up. This regularly scheduled program. Jack we got a minute and a half left in this Las Vegas Aces game the whole season our futures on the line. I know we're we're up one right now. We were down fourteen imagine watching imagine watching football imagine watching football on a day where you're the lives of your. WNBA team are on the line couldn't be meg. Ridiculous else absolutely could not be mean. We'll keep you updated throughout the pot. Let's go into an overall. NFL Recap Week till so far from what we have. Patrick mahomes threw four touchdowns in the second quarter. Did you see that I mean he just doing what he does. He is just saying need like they don't even need a good defense in need any semblance of defense and they're getting it today. The raiders of ten points not that some amazing offense but they need any semblance of defense it will still be my pick for them to make the Super Bowl. I mean it's hard to say go against the Patriots in the chiefs as the top two people wrote like ready to write in one team or another whether it's the chief for the Patriots a walk with the Super Bowl but that's the thing about football. It's not basketball. The best team doesn't always win every year because at the end it comes down to one game so you put your team up if they're playing hot in the NFC against the Patriots in a chiefs in one game anything can happen absolutely absolutely There's one there's one thing I do want to discuss though and this has been on my mind for the past few hours kind of nervous the battle because I'm not willing to accept it yet. Is it time to believe in porn star Jimmy and those San Francisco flow. I just on the spot came up with a new amazing acing segment and I believe I believe on I dunno on TV. They call it like whatever like real or fake we're GONNA do legit or cutie because after week two we have some incredible legit or cutie takes number one. You just introit it. The San Francisco Forty niners owners are two and now they beat who they beat last week they beat the box and then if he'd Cincy to roadways and like we said two wins two wins three pointer with twenty four seconds sorry going but we're down to two hundred four seconds that hurts two wins on the road that's essential but since he I mean their defense is a turnstile they play no defense James Gifted them to touchdown so cutie or legit for the niners Kyrie. I just I don't know I know you said a Windsor Windsor Win Landon. The bengals actually looked good last week against Seattle and actually thought they were going to win this game today but you know what. I changed my mind. I'm looking at the box score. I'm going with Jon legit with the nine so if you say they're legit legit divined Majette and they're gonNA like I'm not saying if the guarantee they're gone to the playoffs but you think they are a playoff often. I think they are playing golf. I'm going to hold off on a playoff contender but hear hear hear me out in terms of why they might be legit. You will get their first two games. The offense is rolling. Kyle Shanahan has been known to be quarterback whisper Jimmy healthy. You put up thirty one in the first game forty one the second game I know there were both against crappy teams but they're both on the road. That's something to take into account. George Kennel hasn't hasn't gotten off to a good start this year so you look at their weapons. deebo Samuel from South Carolina has already made his presence known and he's looking to be a big part that offense but George Kendall gets involved that offense in that braid is running the ball like he was there back back like muster something today a he was spectacular.

Chance has ruled that the Las Vegas aces will forfeit last week's game against the Washington mystics the aces had a brutal travel situation where they were stuck in planes and airports for twenty six consecutive hours. Then they got to the arena four hours before game time, Las Vegas refused to play. Is this a fair decision by the WNBA to call this game four fit? Or should they have rescheduled the game. I do know for fact that the of the aces were fighting for a playoff spot and they lost these that true? Yeah, and they lost the game before. So this counts as them losing two games in one day, which is completely unfair. It's unfair to the players the all the people within the the crowd were giving their money back. Right?

Arizona chase field so that is a look at the Richard, badgen Finley Toyota out-of-town scoreboard when we went to break we were talking a little bit about insurance and whatnot and gonna throw. It back to. The sports side of things, because robbery she's a big Missouri fan as far as college football. Loves Mizzou I will give them a lot of credit last year when this team was one in. Five I thought he. Was going to get fired but they stayed with them and the team closed nicely and they. Did, a lot of weapons back including one of the better quarterbacks not just in the, SEC but in the country and drew lock robbery. She would about this Missouri team well you know and and you're right about last year I was shocked they came back like that and it bodes well for this year However I and I don't have their schedule in. Front of. Friendly but they've got a tough stretch if. I recall, they play Purdue than Georgia Alabama So they they've got another situation where, they could be down early again as far as winds go so. They're going to have to prepare for that and they're going to have to make a strong. Run I think Georgia and Alabama certainly tough, games and I think the go-to Purdue which should be. A tough game and then you're just in in the SEC alone so I, think they have a hard, time when he games this year but if. The quarterback can stay hot and. The, weapons produce, we, do have a good chance there, you go well. They may have a shot to get a road win late against. Tennessee, the other four road games like you said a very tough, at Purdue on September the fifteenth. That's out Carolina October six followed up at, Alabama On the thirteenth of October and then and in Gainesville and. Of course Brady cannon could be a decade because his. Son Jack is a, freshman at, Florida so they play do they play Georgia before Purdue they do not they play Wyoming. It's Martin in Wyoming then apper do then Georgia Dome then at South Carolina at Alabama's Memphis at home. In this a good Memphis, Kentucky at home I could see a win there, at Florida Vanderbilt at home could, see another win there at Tennessee and then Arkansas. At home and Chad Morris just taking over there so I see one. Two three four five six for sure and the Purdue the, total number is going to be. Tough at Purdue. Again, that'll be that'll be one I take the over because you've got Blau, and you've got Sindelar both, quarterbacks back for, Jeff Brom for do and then of course you've. Got locked back, four Missouri, now sports x. Michelle A yeah we're going to get into sport. We're gonna get into, sandy, but, we're, we're, transitioning gotta get. A little sports.
