"I mean, they would lose Michael Forrest, but they can bring everybody else back. If you go, they'd go 37 and three win the national title. Don't you have to make Florida Atlantic preseason number one? You don't have to, but under those circumstances, pre season top 5 is close to mandatory. However, asking a program like that to repeat that kind of success is a lot. So if anyone wanted to fade that, I wouldn't necessarily disagree. I just don't think there's any argument to keep them outside of the top 20 overall. By the way, I wanted to on the table too, that's going to be it's just going to be outright just wanted to win the title brings everybody back preseason number one and is the most likely team to repeat his national champion since Florida in O 6 O 7. Like all of that is realistic at this point. Wild as that sounds. On the FAU note, I did have the story go up on Monday. I tasted on the Sunday show. I just find it to be amazing. And I appreciate the destiny made for willing to go on the record with it. But this dude goes down, drives down to Boca Raton, first of all, the stuff I didn't put in the story like his son had played in an AAU tournament at I guess there's an FAU satellite campus in Jupiter. So Dustin and his wife drive down there, they get to the campus. They're like, this isn't, this isn't FAU. They didn't even think they were in the right place because they had gone to an AAU term like two years before in Jupiter, Florida. So they get there. They show them the football facilities. He meets the AD. He meets the president and he meets a few other folks in high ranking there. And he just gets such a great impression off these guys. They want him to have the job. They put a contract in front of him, and he just signs it. He's just so excited, Mike white at Florida was the coach then dusty was on staff at Florida. His brother had just gotten the FAU job and then he goes into the bag. He signs the contract and goes into the facility after for the first time. There's a pickup game going on. The facility is terrible. The locker rooms are awful. The weight room isn't good. He's walking around and as this is happening, like a cloud of darkness forms over him, but he doesn't want to, he doesn't want to insult the people at FAU, but he's like, good God. Like, what have I done? I can't do this. What have I done? What did I walk into? Goes back to his goes back to his hotel room, his wife is waiting there. And he has an emotional breakdown. Like he's like, I can't do this. Like, I'm going back to Florida. I signed a contract. We have to get out of this. So his wife convinces him not to do that. Mike white convinces him not to do that. He stays on at the job at first reluctantly, like even a key muscadine who's now an assistant at Georgia, but was an assistant there to start. Even he gave me a great anecdote I put in the story where he got a call from daris Nichols, who was a Florida system, and he was like, hey, dusty's looking for guys at his staff. Would you be interested in going down to Boca Raton and working at FAU? And at that moment, muscadine is literally like, he gets the call. He's wiping the snow off of his car and Kent, Ohio, because he was an assistant at Kent State. And he was like, oh, wow, okay. He like, Google's the images of the campus. He's like, this looks good. I could do this. He gets down there. He has the same exact reaction as dusty may. He's like, what have I done? I left one of the best assistant posts in the Mac to come here? What am I doing? Now they made it work and in dusty made the incredible thing about it is he's been above 500 every single year. I mean, he's won a 101 out of a 160 of his games, but to go from this point where you don't want the job hours after you sign the contract to coaching this team in the final four. It's just incredible. It's unbelievable and originally the plan GP was that dusty told me this in January is like you can write this eventually once we get better facilities or some years down the road. But then I went to him after they made the sweet 16, I was like, do you make the final four? I'm writing that story. He's like, you know what? Yeah, let's do it. Let's do it. I got him in a moment of euphoria. And so then on the court on Saturday night, I was like, we had a deal. He's like, you can write it. I was like, okay, good deal. Because at the same time, like you're doing this, you're like, by the way, the facilities were absolutely terrible. When I started, there's a part of that where it's like, it's not like you have upgraded sense, but like you're on a dating app, you ever hear about these stories, you're on a dating app, and you get all excited about the idea of the date, and then you get there, and it's like, oh wow, this is not, this is not what it appeared to be. You know? You got Tinder dude. That's what happened. Yeah. But now look at him. Look at him now. So that's the best story. What's number two winning it? I would say it's Yukon because of the brand power and Yukon's back and they win it all early third coach and 12 years. I would say that's probably number two, but maybe you disagree. I would agree with that, actually. Big brand Hurley that quote from a few years ago is gonna get replayed over and over again. It's coming, better get us now. Yeah, that's probably that's probably the second best story. And then Miami say the real estate we could kind of lump together. It's laryngeal winning the title. Is it learning? Listen, that would thrill me. I don't know how much that resonates, like how much that actually resonates like our buddy John Ross team when Leonard Hamilton was in the elite 8 at some point or had a team that was final four good at some point. John was on this thing where he was like, you know, how cool would it be? Like how great of a story would it be Leonard Hamilton finally getting to a final four? And I'm like, do people care? He thought it was like a sentimental thing. And it was coming from a genuine place. He'd be like, you know, people are going to love to see Leonard. And I was like, dude, I love seeing Leonard Hamilton get to a final four because I love learning Hamilton. But is that something people are really talking about? Boy, would it be wild if Leonard Hamilton got to a final four or wouldn't it be the perfect way for his career to draw near retirement to finally get to a final four? And so I'm asking the same question about Larry and Aga. I think so. Do people care? He's dancing in the locker room. There's a real grandpa's done it. Like, I don't know. I think there's a lot of that. I tell you that, yeah, like he has come across really well in this institute play tournament. I don't know if you saw his. It must have been pre game, day off, Saturday, press conference. We carried it live on CBS Sports Network. I was in studio. And he was asked pretty directly about name image and lightness, because it's well documented. That program benefited in a very public way from name image and like this. And he just, he was so good talking about it. He didn't try to, he wasn't offended by the question. He didn't try to talk around it. He just sort of talked about it candidly straight straight on. And I thought that came across really well. He's done. He has gained fans in the process of this tournament. I think that's pretty clear. And so, yeah, Florida Atlantic, then Yukon, and then, yeah, I'll go with you. Sure. San Diego state would still be. It would still be awesome. In fact, it would be the first trivia time. Okay. Last team last team mountain time zone left to win a national championship was. You should get this. Arizona is what popped into my head.

"It's a pro sports town. Miami and Boston college were the two that I felt like there probably the most difficult jobs in the league because they don't draw well. And Miami especially because you got the good weather and it's approach to sports town. Nobody cares so much you're winning at the highest level of my end. And then they dealt with some of the NCA bullshit. If you remember and they got cleared of all of it, but it hurt them at that time. They lost some guys that they were going to get in and never showed up at Miami. So Miami to me Lauren egg in his 70s, it's kind of caught up with them. He probably needs to retire soon. Leonard Hamilton. It is 70s. That's the one that's probably the biggest surprise to people this year. They're really down, they've been good, but they've had probes. They do not have pros this year. Yeah, and I think that will bounce back. I think he recruits a too high a level. He's done it for a long time. I think that if you look at it next year that could be back to being Florida state. I don't look at that as a problem. Then you got behaved in his 70s, brings his two kids in this year. I saw him in the preseason and I was like, all right, listen, there are gonna be days when they compete anybody, because they've got three or four elite shooters, Cole swider, finally started to shoot the ball fairly well, but buddy's not shooting it great from three, but his all round game is better. Joe girard, the problem with me, and I said this, if they're not making shots, they can't really put it on the floor. They can't they're not great defensively. They're not athletic. But not athletic. That is pretty wild. They're probably athletic. You have to be a bad zone. Long ass love. And they're not. So who's there up? Logan, my girlfriend. She's doing an art project. It sounds like are you okay? There you go. Are you okay? What's the art project? He's turning, what are you doing? You're turning. Jeez, what? She said she's converting a stool to a concrete table, whatever that means. Wow. She's very few. She should teach you how to do some art. I have no applicable skills outside of talking about implying basketball. I can cook a little bit, especially breakfast food, but yeah, I can't replace much of anything outside of a lightbulb. Yeah, that's kind of me too. I'm the least handy human being ever. In fact, when people come over to the work in the house, it's so embarrassing because they'll ask questions. And my wife's the one. She'll do a lot of the handiwork..

"If Mark few still had Tommy Lloyd, he had a ton of recruiting momentum. So number 5 for me is a guy that's the youngest looking 70 year old on the planet. That is Leonard Hamilton. I mean, the dude has done it. He knows how to get it done. He goes under the radar and he's just, I'm telling you, when you ask people around the industry, who they do not want to go up against. It is Leonard Hamilton. Like he just, he finds a way and he wonders his rankings the last I mean. It's been okay. Yeah, they haven't. I mean, they've done a great job honestly. No, they have evaluated. You know, Devin vasel, Patrick Williams, Michelle. Perfect guys the way he wants to play. No question about it. Exactly. So like they haven't really gone after that top ten kid like they did for a while there. But even back in the day rob and you're younger, might even be guys that are older than you. I think they are a few years older. I don't know if you remember the names Jason rich in Isaiah swan. Remember those names? Yeah. That's when I first kind of jumped in. Those were dudes. And like he was just getting guys. Isaiah swan was like a top ten player coming out of Maryland for a while. So I go Leonard at number 5. All right, so you're number four. See, you discarded Mark few. I did. Look at this. He's got two top 6 classes the last two years, two final fours the last 5 years. The data speaks for itself. Tommy Lloyd is gone, Robbie. Tommy Lloyd is in Tucson. Now, look into the future. I mean, we'll see. Time will tell. I'm going to mark a few of four because I think the momentum they're program has. Yeah. It's so substantial.

"He was against it and changed what he's done and had successes it. So I don't think it's necessary that push him out the door either. He's just he's getting older. The guy wage. Is 74 years or something. Like I have fused. It's like we're not he's not leaving at 60 Oregon. Huh. Like what happened here? It wasn't the transfer of thing that really did him in. I frankly do not think any of that is why I think he's just old right? Like and it's not at the title on the athletic article. Coach K retires like, Yeah. Tim Duncan. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, I just, I find it hard to believe like, hey has been so outspoken about feeling like players should get name image and likeness rights. Like I don't think it's that mean you could convince me that maybe he doesn't like the transfer stuff. And maybe he doesn't like the one in done like Factory, but he adjusted to it. Like I think if he really wanted to keep coaching, I don't think that shit would stop him. You know, I think he's seventy-five. And he's made God. I mean, he has to have made into nine figures, easy. Oh, he's worried about the paycheck. Yeah. Like it's some sometimes you want to spend time with your family, it's seventy-five years old. You are so your grandkids run around you. I don't want to chase people, I get it. Yeah, it's it's just money is being that I don't I don't I don't either and I am a little curious what sort of the The Changing of the Guard that's happening with Roy Williams retiring at 70 and Coach K retiring. And Tom Izzo 66 Jim larranaga 71 Leonard Hamilton 72 Jim Boeheim 76 like you're gonna have this transition to this younger style, breed of young head coaches. That I don't think of that we necessarily thought would ever happen. Because in a lot of college basketball fans Minds, those guys are going to be there forever. Yep, no, I think. That's right. And where college basketball goes from here is genuinely interesting job. And I want to start there before we go to, where Duke goes from here, where college basketball goes from here is in a very, I don't want to say precarious place, but it's not a real transitional. This may be the way to put it. I don't think it's like at a Crossroads. Like I think college basketball is always going to be relevant because the NCAA tournament is just the most exciting thing in sports in America. At the end of the day, like there's never going to be a world as long as that tournament exists where people don't take off. Work wage aside, I want to gamble on twelve games of basketball today, right, right? Yes, it's just three, it's a national holiday for me. I mean, I've done it for literally, as long as I can remember, right post College since like, Thursday, and it shifted this here at the days. But Thursday, Friday, like, see you later. I will be watching games from 12 to 12. We're 12 to 1 or whatever it is, and it's transition Arif a dog. It's not it's not going anywhere. I don't like it when people are so nervous about changes whether it's guys going to the G league night or one-and-done or transfer us or what are you going to do? Like I saw right before that on an article that Jon Rothstein wrote that said, last season NC double a tournament. Has highest rated sweet sixteen, since 1993. And.

"Head coach Juwan Howard with coach Howard here again. Brian Bush. One. Howard the Wolverines moments away from the Sweet 16 matchup with Leonard Hamilton and Florida State coach We've heard throughout the week about your special relationship with coach Hamilton. What makes him such a great coach and such a challenge to prepare for him and his team? Well, the short time that I've spent with him makes him a great coach was way out. It takes time to get to know his players, and he have utmost respect and love for his players. Well, that's what I take from it from the time that, uh, books later. Hamilton with my coach. Another person, you know well, is one of the stars on that seminal side. Scottie Barnes. He seemingly conduce what all and it's 69. What makes him such a dynamic threaten someone who can have so much control. Despite that size No. First died. He plays like a point forward, and he's a true definition of a 0.0.4. You really are embracing the opportunity to make plays for others. He's a more past first score later type of guy. It was a hard cute are great lane. And his passion for you know, competing that goes from the offensive and energy investigating so that's why and in his leadership, being a young guy, you know, he's really a good leader. And that's why I respect him so much. You mentioned length and Barnes is one of many Seminoles who have a bunch of length. This is a big team number one nationally in terms of height. How did they use that size, especially on that defensive end to make things difficult for teams offensively? Let me switch 25, then another thing that they do it. Does your job protecting the paint when you drive to bring everyone to the paint. Try to cut off your finishes with their length. They also have, you know it's a pretty miserable protectors, balsa. Gone, Ausubel. All right, Coach. We appreciate time. There's had coached.

Those tracker that notre dame game at the end year on the twenty seven turnovers against john tech in the championship game in the acc. This couldn't be leonard. Hamilton's best team. I can't wait for that michigan state line. I haven't seen it yet. i can tell you point wife. I'm gonna be on the seminoles. And i think the senate could you imagine the seville's alabama pointed in a we'd aching that would be an awesome awesome elite aka so yet crappy games tonight when i think we pay it forward against from really good ones over the weekend i think you know. I'm i have a florida state. I've from the jump ahead. I'm going to the final four. I have my reservations now to be honest with you. I think they have. Frankly some matchup issues with with michigan. So i can't wait to see what the line is. I'm with you. I know the creighton gonzaga lines thirteen and hook. That's what i'm seeing. Now they're gonna play on sunday and then also The ucla alabama no line yet. But i still think i-. Ucla's played great jj. but i think alabama's legit like real legit. Like i think muscleman has done a great job at arkansas. I think oats has done a great job. Alabama i think both of those schools are are massively. Legit i totally agree. And you know what's awesome about obama. They're playing like this super von up and down the court pro style offense. Saudi talented kids are gonna wanna point votes to hide on me. Show him and it was a buffalo. I had him on. His show is a good man. That god can coach basketball and got a good sense about him. Good head on his shoulders off. Alabama's doing i really do You know i'm thinking about it though. I am baylor when it's all said and done. I think we'll have a little bit more. Chaos over the next week. Who knows what happens. In the mid west region will see. If it's seminal pitch michigan if it's alabama whoever coming out of the east region. But i do believe the two best teams is playing and i wonder if you felt this way i can be baylor. Nova line does not line seen way too. Low dude at six and a half. Yeah i tell you. i'm half nine man. I'm shocked by that. Yeah i'm not a. I'm not a believer right now. In nova i. I like j. reid. He's a great coach. I think you know. I really worried about him after the gillespie and more injuries. But you know. I worried about delivers injury. And i taught brown and johns together played better than livers ever played in a game. I thought brown than i was playing out of his mind. And i think loyal beat oregon state even though they're on fire right now and everybody laughed. The everyone thought they'd be gone in their first game. Let alone they're standing in the regional semi and oral roberts. I think it's been a great story. But i think arkansas spanks their ass To be honest with you. I think they'll pull in abilene christian in that game and then it's amazing to me that what. Us's doing right now to Kansas kansas had a bunch of guys now plan. What do you think of the job that. Ucla and usc are right now about the pac. Twelve man you know. The twelve doesn't get a whole lot of respect normally in the ncaa tournament these things. That good man i need. Ucla their second half against michigan. State down they. They came out guns. The boys in thoroughly outplayed them. You see they got some studs on t. Mobile is start. you can get to the rack. Finish around the ride for big body super led a and then you got the oregon dust and scotty you mentioned the dynamic of iowa team that does live to the occasion in march at the most important time of the year. Organic the origin is one of those with almond. It feels like year after year. You get them in the tournament. They know how to win games. Yeah there's no doubt there's no doubt. Aj jay gotta run.

I wanna see the kansas wanna see really cotin from the power. Six conferences moved to the sweet sixteen moved. The elite not really interested in upsets.

Who knows also another reason why i like to watch it is because the pro prospects i wanna see killing him i wanna see evidence Globally i wanna see jalen.

I wanna see a player who might be on the fringe of the lottery or might be a prospect who by be twenty four twenty. Six twenty tournament begins all of a sudden lead. His team in all of a sudden he moved from a prospect is number twenty four to someone. That's the twelve or eleven. Now i wanna see. If kate coming in can cement his status as being the number one pick in the upcoming nba draft with a performance that by reminiscent of carmelo. Anthony what he did when he led syracuse to an ncaa championship. Someone like danny manning when he led kansas to the ncaa championship similar kemba walker when he led connecticut to in ncaa championship pharmacy. Which player who's supposed to be a high draft pick. Well let's see if they're going to be able to do that with their teams. The board they play the more interested. I am quite sure more.

"Pick your take. You gestured under epic. We're not talking about the i. What do ya think man michigan. And hey another example of a guy who left and maybe the grass is always greener john beeline but regardless of seeding juwan howard. It's awesome to see former st. This is apropos of nothing. Really regarding the east region and the advice you're gonna give bracket but school to see guys like john howard and patrick ewing with their alma. Maters rolling Back the tournament. Yeah absolutely love seeing not now. The indiana jobs open Cheney's name possibly bounced around is a guy who could who could take that who could be at least on a list of candidates even though it feels like i. You probably knows who they're gonna go after if they've got boosters paying archie miller's out and volunteering the pay the next guy salary i don't know that they're going to do that Without knowing who it is but anyway cheney could be that guy as for the south bracket michigan is you know i. I don't think the received. I think that deserve number one. See i do think they are the most vulnerable number. One seed When you look at the loss of isaiah livers especially in there. He's been one of their best players all year last last couple of years. You know he's out at least early. Maybe come back but that seems pretty doubtful. They've got they've got a tough road. Lsu is a tough team that they possibly have to base In that second round. Florida state florida state gets there for states at tossed. Tough team to play. If you're not ready for we don't know the the lincoln lettuces always have they just create so many problems defensively leonard hamilton. Fsu coaches has been around. He understands how to get his guys ready. He understands how to Keep other teams uncomfortable. You're looking at michigan trying to get through those couple teams. And then if they do that they have to face either likely either or Alabama aren't willing to really dark horse michigan state. You know it's i. I would be surprised. The number one seeds. i think there's the wolverines are the least likely to get to the final four and then in the midwest. Speaking of number one seeds will save the one closest to at least what i've been watching for last And i don't say this tongue in cheek you point this out and you pointed this out the other day on supporting us dot com ryan his. I was looking at your instant reaction that illinois fans actually probably do have a gripe with The path they ended up with and another case maybe of at the beginning of the year and early on in the season they lost some games. But like if you really look at it like their ken palm rating was going up with some of the losses. They had because of the teams that they were playing scheduling and they've had incredible winds without some of their best players for various reasons. Everybody back now You know i'm i'm biased. To my siblings to illinois and regionally. I watched a lot of them but i think they're so damn fun to watch men. They're really easy team to root. For what do you make of their path. And what do you think lies ahead for the alana..

Ever i was a mass was to shoveled. I was wanted and like five states. Then i had to share and i stopped drinking stop party and became a complete loser. Ruined everything and then the women. She still blame me for everything. I was way better off when i didn't understand a word. She was any hammered and she was yelling at me when i was so. She was yelling at me. I gotta tell you you're going to have those babies. All you want. carver high. Keep out at a mafias lining up a bunch of babies smitty down. I swear to you need to stay a playboy smitty. It's it's it's happening anytime soon. I think the pandemic was the best and worst thing to happen to my dating life best. Because i don't even care about those things anymore. So many other priorities on our list and good and bad for obvious reasons. Loneliness can can be a little bit crippling some. But i've got you guys to talk to. I'm texting you during knicks games. That's all i need scott. It's all mean that's true. I accept smitty What do you think. I keep selling oklahoma. I love line kruger's to win in double overtime in morgantown is just another notch about about five huge wins against really good teams. I think they're dangerous. Yeah austin reeves has been the guy this year and you don't see a lot of seniors. Which is the key you know. They got some guys on their team that have some experience which is what i like offensively. I mean listen. There's not a lot of teams in college basketball right now. That are in the top thirty of both offensive and defensive efficiency. Oklahoma's one of them. They've got a tough end of the season. They got texas then. They got a goat aims. And i know it hasn't been as good as they had been in years past but it's still aims and then they got to really tough games before the tournament starts back to back against oklahoma state and we all know how good k. cunningham's been this year so i'm fascinated to see how that matchup plays out In that in that rivalry there so oklahoma's got the goods this year. But i just again. It's tough for me to back a team. That's not named gonzaga or baylor in the big picture but if you can find who that team is you're gonna make money here because everyone else is. Priced like cheap chuck beef. When the the bears and the bulldogs are priced like filet mignon. Cheap shot beef. Say that five times on a bottle of belvedere at four in the morning at. Let me ask you michigan. Illinois and ohio state ohio state. Kick your ass sunday. I tweeted out. Hoosiers guys like stance and then there was like a thirty point. Blow out of horrible game. I had more fun picking my nose on the sofa and looking out the window. But what do you think of those three big ten teams highly ranked given all kinds of juice by the committee while states a lot. Tougher than i think we think and the big ten is such a fascinating conference this year. Because we haven't really seen michigan run the gauntlet. I thought michigan's win yesterday down. What was it twelve at the half. They double up the badgers in the second half. I thought that was a really impressive. When was the first game in like a month like that is an impressive win at the kohl center right out of the gate illinois. I think he's got the good if you were going to ask me pick one of those three teams that can beat baylor gonzaga. I think illinois got the goods. Because i think illinois is well coached. All three of these teams are well coached but i think illinois has some shotmakers that the other guys don't necessarily have the sumo is an absolute rockstar. And i think cockburn. I think they've got the high low game down pat now i know illinois you know choking issues in years past lot of fans of that program certainly can can remember those final four days when they just couldn't get over the hump but that's a previous team. I think this team is pretty primed for a good run michigan. It's an incomplete resume. Right now scotty. Because i haven't seen the full season. I think if i had to pick one of those three though it'd be illinois and ohio state sleeper though. I don't wanna sleep on ohio state. But i don't think there is good as illinois right now. You know a team. That reminded me of them. When i was a little kid. And they were really good was Mark maguire to paul when he played for depaul back in the day they were always a great team all year. Long all season you name it. And then they'd get in the nc double a. tournament and they could never get over the hump All man meyer coach And then. Joey coached him after that his son they could never get over the hump. Lastly let me ask you really quick. Who do you like tonight. virginia. Florida state down. And i'll be honest. This is these are two teams. That i think can can also give gonzaga baylor some problems especially florida's state because of their length. I know i'll be honest. I think if virginia shooting at that hauser kids edition. I think. Virginia shooting it. Well they can beat anybody in the country. But i think on any given night florida state could be the best team in the country just because of how long in strong they are and i have leonard hamilton head coach. I'll i'll take florida state than i but again those are two teams in the acc. That i'd be very interested in as we get closer to mark a mini. Enjoy the ice storm tonight and through the morning tomorrow and be careful when you go get your back in your newspaper in the morning that you don't slip and fall on your ass. Many probably not leave my apartment for the next twenty four hours. Scotty but thank you. Very much for the well-wishers great stuff. So all right. There's my guy running after the smith. Thanks many guys mafia. Let's pick it up on the arkansas hard i six. Scc wins in a row impressive conference and they went to you know. colombian beet missouri in overtime. Very blessed. i've told you before on the show you know. I have missouri's really good as long as they're playing in colombia. It's the first time. I've seen them a big game at home. It's on the road. I don't trust the tigers. Yes there was a lot of big games on saturday. You had an upset there with crane being villanova not just that they beat and they smack around. Eighty six to seventy three stars. Put up sixteen or more for that team. Alabama number seventeen put up a hundred and fifteen points. Mba score their hundred fifteen eighty two as they won their game over georgia with five players in double figures yet. I cruise over michigan. State beat michigan state. Thinking said though the worst. Since i've been there how bad they loss. Iowan that one of virginia north carolina Mediocre this year. Lsu upset number. Sixteen tennessee by twenty-five from thomas and twenty smart and auburn. But who cares. They suck this year and duke actually got to win. What a surprise they actually get a win here to stop their three game skid. Let's look at. I talked about earlier and then of course. Ohio state and indiana wasn't much of a game for you on saturday. Let's talk about on saturday where the incident of lay came out towards committing release with the top sixteen. They're gonna look. They gave us a look at how the twins going to break dallas.

"On Twitter We love to see you have to say by hand of the Coleman ESPN he is handled in fits ESPN. So a lot of discussion a lot of opinions. About a basketball player deciding the opt out. His name is Jalen Johnson. He's gonna forego the rest of his season and enter the NBA draft. He put on Twitter and his handle If you want to reach out to him come should play If you had something to say it Jalen underscore J 23. I appreciate everything about my time at Duke. Coach K. My teammates and the program have been nothing but supportive throughout the season, especially the rehab of my foot injury. My family coach and I have made the decision. I should not play the remainder of the season so I could be 100% healthy in preparation for the NBA draft. This is not easy, but we feel is best for my future. I have nothing but love for the Brotherhood and thank my teammates and everyone associated with the program. Duke will always have a special place in my heart and will always be a part of me. This isn't an opt out. He quit. And I understand it. A foot injury, you know, early on in the season, Miss What? Freddie 34 games. Um The past three games. He's come off the bench. He only played one handful of minutes against NC State that to me when you when you have the last four games didn't start in three You only played 89 minutes against NC state over on Saturday. This tells me with the way Duke season is gone. Also probably not going to make the incidentally turned not probably they won't make the incidentally tournament right unless they win the A. C. C tournament, a cc million one team in but Other to Forrester in Virginia. Excuse me. Never mind would use number seven Damn getting anybody of no but number seven in the contract out 20 teams. We just talked to Leonard Hamilton that one of those things, But anyway, welcome to the show. Thanks for joining us. Appreciate it. It's so cold here, man. Well, I'm moving a little slowly here. Think of it. We have a negative four wind chill here in Dallas, Texas, with no snowman. Cared right there for a nose. And that's me in a top hat. You keep it all. You got to go to Highland misfits, boys. I'm already there. Been there for a while. But anyway, look, this is not an opt out. Parsons When the best linebackers in college football from Penn State. That was an opt out it was before the season began this to me, even with the foot injury, you know, and that was a while ago I was at the beginning of the season. This is quitting. If you're opting out, you can still hang with your teammates. You could still be part of a team and just not play. By all accounts. What? Talk to Seth Greenberg about this coming up the next hour while accounts eight. Got he gone. Leaned out the locker and he hit the Rose. Seth will. No, I I don't know that that's the rumor out there, right? Ready. This is not opting out. This young man quit on his team. Disagree. And here's why I disagree because Coach K put out this statement. While we are encouraged by what we have seen medically for jail in future, we believe this decision is in his best interest. Ultimately careful with everyone about players will continue to support John Dean's progresses toward his goal playing professional basketball. He deserves me fully healthy for the upcoming NBA draft. That's why I don't believe he quit. He's looking out for his best interests, which is what you do When you go to college. You go to college to get an education and to make sure that your fortified once college is done. This is jail is way of fortifying himself. Once college is done now we can play and I'm not saying you're wrong. I'm not saying you're wrong in your opinion, because they're playing the people. That share your sentiment. If there was not a statement from coach K. Then I'm with you. Oh, yeah, he did quit his basketball team. But the fact that in his statement jealous thing, he said, my family coaching out made the decision. That means Coach Meister csg was on board with this and my son says I look, I'd rather you stay. But if this is the best interest of you if I might just show up, I'd rather play not being here. We don't want to be here. Have plays that buy in. So Yeah, you could say quit. Like I said, I'm not going to say that you're wrong. I don't believe he quit based on the statement that Coach K put out on Twitter regarding to basketball. I don't think Coach case ever gonna torture player, especially during a pandemic. There's no way that a guy like Coach K or any coach right now is going to crush a player during a pandemic that what's going on with these guys mentally physically is growing, especially mentally. But I'm just looking at history. Yeah, I understand why Coach case putting that out there? He could still be a part of this team he could still Remain with the squad and just not play. That's opting out to me. How are you? This young man that I hate. I hate to crush you a 18 19 year old, but to may when you look at the last three games, not not not starting, and in the fourth game, only playing 89 minutes. He said. He pulled the ripcord like he's jumping out of a plane. I'm out of here, but we also another way. Also injured. He is well if he was injured, Coach K wouldn't even be playing him at all. Well, maybe he has a reduces minutes.

And Rupp Arena and let's go ahead and get back to the lines. Terry's with us and Shepherdsville. Hey, Terry, how are you? Great. Thank you. So quick question for you, 78. Thank thank you for all you did there. Thank you. Favorite player on that. My favorite player on that team was Jay Schadler. And I just wanted to know Was Truman that much better than him or shadows seem like he was probably one of those guys. That drove Joe cultural crazy, probably with maybe maybe some curfew issues and what not as one of you could come in on that, and Stars last game against Missouri and the fans being upset about Dante not playing as much I kind of agreed with Cal on that went in the first half. He kind of really get physically abused in that game. And even when he got shot, he looked like he was trying to get him out of his hand. Just so he wouldn't Get the ball taken away from him, and we were playing Wilma second after we shot 60%. I don't think it was that big of an issue that tonight might be a totally different Feel for the game and that he may play more minutes. But I thought last game against Missouri that that was the right call to kind of leave him over there because I thought we were playing. Playing well enough and then a buzz if you would comment, Uh, when I first started listening, heard, do say something about I did something. Is something been announced tonight. As far as you say, the team terminal is something going on tonight that somebody's not playing and I'll hang up. Listen. Thank you. All right. Thanks, Terry. Nothing has been in. But Cal on his radio show the other night said that you know, he hoped that Terence Clark I could get back and practice yesterday and Thursday. I don't know if that happened or not, Cal said. If he did, he'd want a plane tonight. My understanding is that the caliph's told Dick Vitality is not playing tonight. So if that's the case that unfortunately that streak of Kentucky, uh having, uh, not a full roster of their scholarship players available will continue. And and Jack. I thought he made a great point about J. Schuyler because Jay was a guy kind of like the folks that call for Dante Allen J and Truman Claytor. Both had very different skill sets, which were important to your team. Yeah, and there were times for both Truman's started and now Jay was in the starting lineup for the first. Ever game here at that's right. Head rub. So jaded Start some on Drummond was Truman was just a great player. I mean, he was. I mean, they both could shoot lights out. I mean, they were Pretty similar in some ways, but ondas far as J and driving coach, whole crazy and curfew, curfew issues. I've never known anything about that kind of thing with J. And that big boom you heard was a streak of light mint was a streak of lightning hidden Rupp Arena finished. I don't want I don't want you to name names, but now that we're talking about it, was there anybody on that team? In the days before social meeting everything and cell phones that did not have an issue with curfew from time to time, everybody On the team who did not have the name. Jack Givens had problems. Does that answer your question? Yes. For those of you who did not join us last game. That's when Jack informed us that he got a key from the guy at the front of my good man. Don't even bring it up. Hey, you! Hey, listen, I I'm from here in Lexington. Yes. And my mother Invited me to her house and that spend the night whatever I wanted to do any day, no matter what time just to get away. I was always at my mom's house. So that's my story, and I'm sticking to it. And you you, in addition, you know, but in addition to being from here in Lexington that that would cause other issues for you, even though It was back free social media cause Everybody knew you from playing in Kentucky. But everybody that didn't know you was a Kentucky basketball player knew us, Jack from Lexington. That's right. But, you know, I'll say this. I mean, you know, thank goodness we didn't have a social media and stuffing. You know you were talking about, uh, potential controversy within the team. I mean, I can't tell you how many times we had guys quit the team, right? I mean, just get mad at hotel come back and walk out right and actual fights, fistfights, and I know we got some other caller. You're good. We don't talk about my buddy James Lee James is a Lexington guy. Obviously, he and he went to Henry Clay. I went to Brian Station and you know all of that stuff. While James Lee Left practice one day. Hey, was coach all to get a wall means go up in touch the top of Memorial Coliseum. Come back. James Lee. Uh, James Lee says I'm not gonna do it. I didn't mess up. I'm not doing it, Jobe says you leave. So he leaves. And he fools around a little while and before he's able to get home coach Leonard Hamilton is after him is no Leonard Hamilton and beat him to his house. Oh, man, beat him beat him to his mom and dad, and he told Reverend Lee, who was a pastor at the church. I went to James and I grew up in right, he told revving. Leave the story. So James comes home. Dad, what's for dinner? And readily says What are you doing here? I thought you had practice. Well, you know. Emily said. What happened? Said. Well, did everybody else run to get a wall said Yeah, but, dad, I didn't matter. He said. Well, until you go back, you ain't eating dinner in this house. How about that? I mean, that's what that's the way it was, and we dealt with it without social media, and all of these don't opinion. Fred Cowan left the team one year Really, and he went down. He went back down the western Kentucky worries from To go fishing on this farm. By the time he got fishing on the farm Coach Hall was already out there fish and waiting for him to get there. Wow, we dealt with those kind of things without the help of social media and all the fans, right and they came back and we loved each other and it was it was done and it is again. Not to defend anybody because nobody needs defending. But it is just so different. It's different, because I mean, I still got. I still got two kids over on campus.

"Gay man. ESPN radio. The ESPN Apple I gotta do is tell your smart speaker to play ESPN radio. She cornered Jordan corn out here. Hanging out with you on a Sunday and all guests appear via the Goodyear hotline. And that's where we're going right now. Because we're welcoming college basketball analyst Seth Greenberg also a friend of the family, You know, Coach Good to talk to you this afternoon. Thanks for being with us. How are you? I am doing great. It's always in order to be on the radio show with the first family of ESPN and honor looking coats and honor. I knew you would drop like a nice compliment at the top. That's why it asked how he was somewhere. He said. How you about basketball? See, I had a whole plan there. Okay, so a lot of surprising wins over the weekend number. 20, Virginia Tech. Be Number nine. Virginia number 24, Oklahoma Be Number nine Alabama It goes on and on Florida State loss of Georgia Tech off those performances this weekend coach which was the most surprising upset to you. Florida state losing because I'm really, really high on Florida State. I'm still high in Florida State Won't game doesn't have this to make you know the season, But you know Florida State going into Georgia Tech Georgia Tech change Their defense is yes, but Artist. A husband played such a high level since they come out of that pause, and you got to give George that credit. They played Virginia very close game lost a close game to do could finally got over the top with a Ah window really is going to enhance their resume, but I'm so high on the fighting. Leonard Hamilton was a little bit shocked a non ranked team to go in and could could beat them the way they did because they lead from wire to wire. They really did, and almost speaks to the fact that this Georgia Tech team can create some match up problems and maybe a little bit better than people expected. Georgia TECH the team to watch out for in the A. C C. No question. Ah, lot of the headlines were seeing coach in college basketball have been dominating the story lines is the blue Bloods. The struggle of the Blue Bloods, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina Duke. They're not who they typically are. And is this going to be an NC double a tournament without these teams, but quietly, North Carolina started put it together. Quietly. Duke starting to put it together. We saw Indiana beat Iowa, Kentucky on a pause with the game postponed. First Texas As you look at these blue Bloods, which one has a brighter future this season in front of him? I think it's North Carolina. I really like this North Carolina team. I think to start to get better guard play, Walt, this makes the shots which opens up before you know, they're gonna rebound. You know, in the pounding the post, you know they're gonna score at the rim. Are they've improved defensively and they're taking care of Medicare to basketball. Hurley turned it over 13 times a game right now in the last decade, six or seven, so their ability to take care of the basketball, they're getting more easy baskets in transition. Think Anthony Harris will bring more stability as he gets form that it's on. You know, they're going to score to get the glass, so I think Carolina does have the highest upside. I was impressed with Duke this past weekend, but I hope I'm impressed with Duke of disappointed in Clemson. Absolutely A say you doing all right? No Mention of Indiana. Their coach clearly must not be high on your Hoosiers. You could be all right. You know, that's a perfect transition. I don't know what to expect from the Hoosiers. I really don't know. They're good enough to beat Iowa. I without CJ Fredericks. Dear friends, if we gotta shoot 50 from the three point line gives it another weapon. But Indiana's economy anomaly to me because you looked at him. I saw preseason I thought they were gonna be really good, older, mature team. Trace tax, and Davis is obviously a difficult, magical complaint of baseline at the elbow. He's hard to keep off the glass reminds of a little bit of democracy, bones plated gonzago a little bit. But I don't know what I'm getting from the game. The game they're descending but affects with their little bit. So I think we need to go by turning team. I just don't know how deep they'll go with depends on If the Jackal another hike, Okay, So that's a perfect transition Coach. Thank you for that, By the way, we're talking a college basketball analyst Seth Greenberg joining us on the Goodyear hotline. So Jordan likes to just like, you know, rub things in my face. Sometimes I love my husband. But this is what he does best. And as we just talked about, it was a little questionable over radio airwaves. I'm in Indiana alum, but my husband over here just continuously beat the drum for per two. He likes producer. He thinks they're great basketball team. We're going to see him. For a long time in March. So I ask you of the teams that maybe aren't ranked or people aren't really talking about right now. What's a team? You really like? I do like her. Do I have to admit I like to do because I love my painter. I think Matt Painter gets the most out of his team trade. John Williams was terrific post passer constantly complaining to double teams sashes tomorrow. This is makes big shots. I love the young young kids that are playing form right now and Hunter. Get some some easy baskets, so I I really do like that. They won't think it's not right. But also in the big tent. Big time basketball is different. There's a feeling big time basketball. You watch that, and you know what? It's hard watching anything else this year. Because status better..

"Night on ESPN Radio and the ESPN, According Cronin with Jeff Dickerson. We're pleased now to be joined on the Goodyear Hotline. With Leonard Hamilton, the head coach of the Noles coach. First off Congratulations on the win in the first half. Today, Clemson had more turnovers. Seven then then made shots for 24 from the field. What was the key for your guys in locking down on the defensive end? Well, there's no doubt that way. Didn't play very well against Clemson, and they played like out the time that we play them before. And that has to be a motivating factor for our guys and not to take anything away. From the victory. That person they played much better than us. And they played harder. They play with more determination. They executed the offices in defense of the anything our guys were kind of motivated, just wantedto go back out and not go to that feeling again. You know, you know, I think I think we're growing up a little bit true. We're also be improving. I think we will find out a little bit more about Team Charles R. Rotation, They learned how to play with each other a little better. We have a freshman court guard. There was a power forward. Always life. He's making the unbelievable adjustment. We have some four new players that were trying to integrate into our system that are important for We need to play well for us to be successful, So we kind of been spread around a little bit this year, but we plan a lot of guys. And we're playing so many different combinations. It's just taking us while the start figuring it out, and now we're way making baby steps and this team has AH, lot more improvement. I think we can make Leonard. Is there a trait or characteristic about this team? That there you particularly like? Actually, we have a great culture. The kids share playing time They share the ball. They really like our system and in life. They believe that we'll look different. You know, we play more people than most teams, and we share the ball a little bit. And we wait. Give probably a little more freedom within the compound of what we believe. His way. We need to play in order for us to win. So right now I got in a pretty good place, mentally and emotionally. We kind of connected and the chance for one another tonight. Let's answer. I'll try to put some dog trainer whom back in the game, and he wanted, he said. Culture Let's put the walk on. I tried to get my mama put required grand the game. Winner. Off Molly. Gaza was training well, he's a coast Let me lick Playboy so he could get confidence. But that's unusual in this day and tired when everybody's trying Three more minutes and get more points I got actually when someone's saying Well, they were happy for those guys, and that's the kind of culture we've been able to develop, and I think that's probably what's fueling. The way we're improving right now. You guys have gone for know in the last 11 days after a period where your season was interrupted by covert 19 protocols during that stretch where you had those games against Duke and pit postponed, how did you use that time to re evaluate? It may be fine Tune your goals for this stretch of the season. I think we've put forth a lot of just trying to make sure we connected mentally and emotionally, we feel physically. You know, we were talented, not the most talented team and ABC book with talented enough Now what we feel that we had to do is just make sure that I called principles. Uh, Our cultures and check out it's just in this. Sharing the ball in comfort each other, hold each other, accountable, Executing the little things that we think very important. We've spent a lot of time talking about it, and it's been more conversation and educating than that. It has been anything else, and I think that's This make a big difference right now, Leonard. It's been as you know, such an unusual year and unorthodox year with everything going on. Do you feel like at this stage now or in late January? Have you guys been able to get into a routine or you still waking up every game day morning on pins and needles? Not knowing if you're gonna play well way ever since last year, when we got our season counsel We have tried to Miss Lee, but prayer our guys for the unexpected. In other words. That worry about that which we can control. And I think that they have a pretty good man that where we don't play a game. We missed the game. We have a Paul. Don't worry about it. Just move on and try not to let That that body and I got a pretty good place and we just try to explain them. The protocols and the number of tests were taken and all. What we going to do now is to keep everybody safe. So they had that would be paled in comparison. If someone was, unfortunately, have something negative affect them because of clothes back 19. Way feel that were critical place without guys they understand, And right now we understand focus on taking care of ourselves and trying to get better every game. Seminoles have not lost to Clemson in Tallahassee since February 2015. They extend their win streak over the Tigers this afternoon with the 80 61 victory. Leonard Hamilton, coach of the nose, joining us now on game night, I wanted to jump back on what you said earlier about some of the new faces the changes in the in the makeup of this team this year. How pleased are you with the way that the depth of this group has taken shape so far, 11 players today getting scoring column were always highlighting the likes of Calhoun and Cooper Cooper visas so often But how far do you think you'll be able to get this season with the way that your day depth is shaking out so far? Well, cause it way tried not Worry about. Get too far ahead of ourselves..

"Hotline. I met Jones. So 40 by Meyer Metcalf. We will be handing off to emit Golden and Cris Carlin here in a little bit for prime time, But before we do that, It is time for the segment. We always finish our show with which is Matt versus Myron. Myron and I picked the games. We tell you who's gonna win. We make you all kinds of money, and we're ready to do it again. How did we do last week, Joe? Incredible. One of the best weeks to date, Matt, you went four in one, Myron, You went three and two, which means you are dead even through 75 selections. 37 34 3. Daddy's For the record, The MO mentum has come with me. As I have learned Myron's weaknesses. As I've learned how to exploit his picks. It continues to go better. Let's get started. All right, It's going to start slow and it's going to ramp up. That's how I've decided this is going to start slow and ramp up to the big event. So because Matt you went for in one last week. Do you want to started? You want Meyer in the start? Always let my always deferred by and go first. All right, So Myron's gonna go 1st 1st game up is this afternoon 3 P.m. Eastern. It's going to be wait a minute. 3 P.m. Eastern Did. Florida state. Clemson already start? I don't know what happened. Who knows what happened? Just go ahead. We don't even have wet dead Eastern Pacific time zone slaves. Florida State eight into laying set 6.5 against nine and three Clemson. Man. I think Florida State is better than what people think. Leonard Hamilton never gets into respect. They've proven that when they play at the highest level, they could beat anybody. Uh, I will go in Florida State to cover All of you right now should go look up a picture of Leonard Hamilton and then look up a picture of limit Leonard Hamilton 30 years ago. The man does not age He is like 70, and he looks like he's 30. He whatever he's doing at Florida State is what everyone should do. And I would argue Leonard Hamilton is one of the most underrated coaches in sports. Now he hasn't made a final four, which hurts him. But every year they're good. They lost two lottery picks last year and came back and are better this year. Oddly, so I will take floor. The state is well and everyone should be as lucky as Leonard Hamilton Toe have the ability to stay young. He's the Dolly Parton of college basketball could work. Florida State's up by 15 with three minutes to go in the first half. So there we go. Great start. We talked that up to such idiots selection making on my behalf crossing a Pacific in Eastern times over. At least you pick the same thing. Good. All right. So moving on one more basketball game tonight. 8 P.m. Eastern. This game has not started yet Mad. It's going to be the Brooklyn Nets taking on the Miami Heat. The key here is the total. It's 2 31.5. The overheads cashed in 11 straight Brooklyn games. Are you going over or under 2 31.5? So so there is still trying to figure out this Brooklyn team clearly because no matter what they do, it goes over. This is a tough one because Miami has not put up the points they have in these other years. But Brooklyn was embarrassed. You lose to Cleveland twice. You know how embarrassing that is. Lose to Cleveland, once, much less twice in a row, so I think they're going to score big numbers. I think Miami has to score to stay with it. I think it would be up and down would be a fun game. I'll take the over even though that is a very high number. Yeah, I'm gonna take the over to me if you got James Harden and Kyrie involved, at least two of the.

I mean, no team really in the country's got bigger home away Disparities, the Minnesota I mean, they're awful on the roads and then at home, they play like a top five team, and they mean they probably a very red hot Michigan team so I can on Lee, Look to the go first theory, even that 6.5. Yeah, nobody. Teddy covers the home road dichotomy. I mean, that's where I first very like. I'm like, What's that word? Dichotomy. You gotta all right, That's it. So then I started using and acting like, you know. I knew what I was talking about Had no idea. You know, Like I said, I used that once Adults like stopped listening to covers. That is just great. All right, Let's move one down. NC state in North Carolina, Carolina minus 6.5 and see state. Be careful because one of their one of their pretty good players is a little bit banged up. He's questionable and assumes I find where I put all these injuries. I will. I will find out. Well, here we go. I covered it up there. Right. N C. State to go rolling down. Got about, uh, Manny Bates 9.6 boards a game questionable with an ankle injury. Good forward there. If I'm not mistaken, and C state did a number on Caroline earlier, didn't they? On. They beat him by three. Okay, what was off, But they did get the win. Okay, so anything with this one Now you and the state hasn't played for 10 days now, and their last look was really bad. So hot my 30 plus against Florida State, But then again, it's a rivalry game out feeling like 6.5 with this North Carolina team this year, Baylor being 9.5 at Oklahoma State, not an easy place to play. But this Baylor team's pretty good and you like him. Do I lean Baylor here. I mean, you look at the cross, then the entirety of the season. I mean their closest wins by eight the last two games, but I mean, obviously should have covered against Kansas. So in this team gets margin every single game. I can only look toe Baylor here. I will say this. You mentioned Florida State. They keep an eye on Anthony. Polite 10.4 boards questionable with shoulder injury, but they've been rolling right now. Leonard Hamilton has been playing good solve all their lane 6.5 to clubs and Clemson's not playing good ball. I had Georgia Tech against us and the other night. And Georgia Tech. Just wasted. Clemson has a 3.5 point dogs so I would look at a fish. You there in Tallahassee? Me too. And I was with you hired claims in the other night, and that was very bad. Look on a Jordan. I had Georgia Tech. I had your detective. Oh, yeah. Yeah. There you go. Katie. No, no, that was that was getting paid. Old Fehbp. Yeah, No, no, Actually, I did. I did not. You know, I got I put my place up night before and Clemson's just not playing that, like they're just not playing Well, there's certain teams that I'm looking at Louisville and Duke. Louisville's up to three from one. Duke's not playing well, They just got tattooed pretty good on the road the other night as well. I, But I don't know about Louisville. I mean, they They got me one game. They were good. There was a game that they played a nonconference game early in the year. I'm trying to remember who it was. They got just pummeled. I mean, they have to lose by 30. I was it somebody up in the Northeast. I'm just trying. I mean, it was really embarrassing. Wisconsin. Yep. Crush him like 85 to 50 ft or something. There you go. You go. I should, um I was gonna go. You don't remember the Badgers? Come on. All right. I real quick to speaking to the badge is the point of Louisville last couple games. So, yeah, you know about from a that don't wanna bet either Team At this point, C. J. Walker Point guard for Ohio State could be back. He's missed the last three. They blew a game the other night at home. Now they go to Cole Arena, and they're taking on Wisconsin Badgers from four up to five now. Yeah, Just when I thought Ohio State was getting their act together. I mean, they're going lain egg against produced so not sure. I got a good parts on them. So the past from me right now, Here's Here's one a Stanford. Their game was called off against USC, and they said USC covert stuff from what I heard. That's not correct. I mean, there could have been some stuff, maybe with covert. I don't know, but SC's games scheduled to go Ah, Here's the thing. Zaire. Williams, the freshman. And I talked to some people that I know. He's not done yet. But there's some internal conflict there. I will say Brace will's listed.

CONFERENCE PREVIEW: The ACC has Virginia in the catbird seat, with Duke, North Carolina, Florida State and Louisville all giving chase
"So in our rankings, it goes Virginia North Carolina like you pointed out after that it's Florida State Louisville but you had those in The Opposite Order Louisville Florida State I. I think you can argue either way, but you mentioned you talk to the North Carolina staffer. Recently, I talked to somebody at Florida state. Within the past week and they were openly wondering if they if this team. was going to be better than last season's team and last season's team of course, won the ACC, and so I take that for whatever it's worth but. In Tallahassee they think they've got a they think they've got a team that's going to finish. Fifth in the fourth or fifth in the ACC. What's interesting here is I know and Louisville's also. I think quietly really in on their roster I. think There's a line after Florida State and Louisville another tier if you will. When we get to the teams after that? I listen. I. Have Been Wrong about FSU LIKE I say it was good humor here but be tournament picks or general projections I have been off on Fsu more often than been correct. Efficacy was twenty, six and five when the ACC last season and lost Trent forest loss Patrick Williams lost Devin for cell I mean those are the teams four best players they're not that it doesn't still have talent but. That would be just a hell of a deal there. If Leonard Hamilton could make that happen to combine them with Louisville, real, quick I I actually think. It's I think that Louisville can be close to what Lewis last season it was ninth and Ken Palm. It went twenty, four seven it loses all five of its starters but. I just again legit because we're doing this in real time like just like David Johnson Samuel Williamson are are two names that are that in my opinion need to be on our top one, hundred one players and then they bring carly. Jones in from Radford who apparently might be their best player and You know it could be a twenty two point. Game Guy. is going to have a different look to them this season. The top of the ACC is totally fascinating I. Really do think it's Virginia and the other four we've mentioned. Almost, put them in any order. I can't quite see Louisville being top team in the league I can't get there but I think it could be super competitive and everyone below Virginia they're is GonNa make for an interesting race we had in our voting Miami coming in at six and then Syracuse at seven and it's interesting like. Last season I remember talking about this briefly and then you know pain. Democrats and everything's over. So whatever. But. Here's Syracuse. Again picked seventh in our preseason poll ACC poll. In terms of the panelists, some people had them as low as nine. I think you had eight I had him seven. So I'm more of a believer than most but. How many times do you think Syracuse has finished in the top five in the ACC in the past six seasons? Trivia Thanh. Say Zero Zero is the answer two, thousand fifteen eighth two, thousand, sixteen, Ninth, two, thousand, seventeen seventy, two, thousand, eighteen, tenth, two, thousand, nine, hundred, seventh last season six, zero, top. Top five finishes in the League Past Seasons there are twenty, eight and twenty, eight in the. Past. Three seasons they had a surprising final four in two, thousand sixteen and a surprising sweet sixteen in two thousand eighteen. So that Ma- ask some of this, but it is undeniable that. For, one reason or another you know that's one of the biggest brains in college basketball and it hasn't been operating like one of the biggest brains in college basketball lately,

NCAA Tourney Preview
"Tournament is allegedly underway. Let us bring a man who will be calling many of the games all the way through the national championship Turner sports analyst and somebody we watched play in high school. You're even old now south lakes high school. Let's start with this. I ask you as an analyst Dookie when you watch Zay on. What do you see? Wow. See explosiveness? I see, you know, see almost like a combination of a linebacker who jumps like Vince Carter. Is really nothing we've ever seen before in terms of his explosiveness athleticism. But also how hard he plays and steals activity has energy just off the charts. We're so used to comparing people you really can't compare them because there's really been nobody quite like him. That's how unique Zion. Williamson is all right grant beyond Duke. You've had a chance to study the brackets who do you like beyond the blue devils? I mean who jumps out to you as a team that could could at least get to the final four not further. While there's a lot of teams, and I know a mouse opposed to say this. But I think North Carolina is really talented trouble for that. I can get in trouble for that. So I if anyone says anything I'll just pretend I'm seeing Smith, but but not North Carolina. Roy Williams has done a fantastic job. I do think UVA they've had a lot of setbacks adversity in the tournament. But I do think this is this is Tony Bennett's most talented team. And I think they'll get through and get to the final four. I think Michigan state. I know they're in the same region as Duke, but I I was at the big ten conference tournament last week. I followed them Tom Izzo. This team is just balanced tough. They defend they can score. They really don't have a weakness at all as a sleeper team. I like Texas Tech the best defensive team in the country. They got a kid Jerry Kover who's probably wanted to top five players in college basketball that nobody knows about he's capable as they are. Taking a long run. And I love Florida state. You know, I love what they've done Leonard Hamilton. They won twelve of thirteen games in the regular season. People forget they got to the ACC conference finals loss to Duke. But they have a lot of death in very talented. So there's teams out there. Other than Duke believe it or not that are capable for long run. I'm gonna ask you to put all your old man hat for second. You and I did this a little bit the other night in Chicago during the big ten turnament. Will you go back to that last year? Even when you lost to Arkansas Scotty Thurman shot sorry to bring this up. You had seen your late and teams teams at three or four all Americans seem to time. And when you're watching now played there, but you're watching now this one and done era are the guys that he good. I mean, you look at them and think, yeah, these guys could have played when we did and won something. That's a good question. I think I think I think there's some really talented players and a lot of young talented players. But you know, the difference was you had older players more experienced players who had the opportunity maybe go pro who didn't think that UNLV team in nineteen ninety blue blue out Duke and Denver in the championship game. And you had Stacy Augmon.
