"From a testing standpoint You know what I'm saying like I don't know. The answer I. To play more league games or are moving, even move to start at least season after Thanksgiving anyone. May, a lot of things. So. That's why say it's it's really premature to even start thinking about how does this disadvantage the PAC twelve to get in the NCA tournament I think is your main question we we don't know what the other teams are going to do you know or do we or does everything it pushed back and we played the entire season starting January you know so much could happen over the next six weeks. You know if I told you guys a month ago The big tens of you know of the Michigan Ohio. State Games not going to happen. I mean. Would you really believe it? So you just don't know. Mickey mentioned the NC Double A. Tournament's Word of God I e questions. I got. In my in. My radio show when they announced that football was canceled was that. Tournament you know. The you mentioned talking to your players about You know not having the answers how he handled the parents and now they've been. I get great parents. That's one thing I've been very fortunate. In, threes I can say that is yeah. I got the job though be transferred which is very rare as you got people just transfer any. The wind blows people transfer. Bernie job. I got the job nobody transferred parents gave me a chain obviously, totally different style of coaching delivery style of play everything and. You know especially here between Stephen I. So you know they all stayed and they've been great i. You know parents again the you know the older than your kids the wisdom of the kids just WanNa play man. The parents, the parents understand ramifications. And they want safety You know they they like we all love our kids so. That's what we're at a point with you know our guys I this earlier this summer guys I didn't it was it was not time to bring anybody back in my opinion and I didn't even entertainment I didn't push for I. Didn't think it was right I was way too many unknowns back in May and June. But now we're at a point where my in our case and I'd probably say this is most cases are guys are all training on their own wherever they can get in the gym and I don't know how safe that is. they're playing pickup. They're playing five on five training in finding a way room somewhere that they can get in somehow some way. into me there, they'd be a lot safer with us with with testing. even if we would have to go through certain protocols and. It might be a little bit of a pain for them. You know every day to go through the protocols that go on everywhere we're. We're there back in training so. Safety I think with parents you know is the main thing and just you me and my message to them has been whatever we do when all this starts back up, you gotta continue to remember it's voluntary. Scholarships remain and if people aren't comfortable with their kids playing nobody's taking anybody's scholarship I think I'm sure that'll be universal in college athletics. I. Here's my thing. We just watches took patriots from Cleveland Indians right at not have enough that. Yeah. T makes you selfish I, think that's the biggest challenge. You're GonNa find schools that have cultures teammates center are in it to win because you know what they're gonNA. Say this. We're going to be comfortable being uncomfortable going to have to have discipline to be the teammate give up some stuff that normally used to have like you may report a second ago. Your guys are all working at L. as the greatest thing about L. A.'s eight thousand guys that are working at eight thousand kids can get a good run. That's so much more dangerous. On campus where they get in eighteen have protocol have medical doctors about to move God forbid big sick they have everything at at at their at their access. Their home and and and and it's not the same. I mean isn't that as coast aren't visit that were you like every single Mike? Yes and. I'm not going to give you names, but we we've we've had multiple guys at have already. Gotten paid the virus and been through it. and you know you're concerned with them, spreading it to their family members right you know the the Especially Grandma and GRANDPA or. You know somebody was a medical condition because they're out there working out out there playing not not being irresponsible. We're talking about you know cash working out. Get a get a phone call somebody that was at the gym. got the virus you better go get tested. You know so. That's a concern. That's why you know I got to a point where I thought earlier in the summer. Hey, you know we don't need to be Russian these guys pack right now we don't even want. We're GONNA play. and. You couldn't really get in gyms and bay, and then started loosening Jim. But by now it's got is your training or working out playing every day. So you know now I'm opinion for their safety I think I need to get them back with us for F for not just for their safety for just a, it'll help control the spread, the more guys working out in quarantined environment so. yeah that that is a concern. That the guys that we've had we have dealt with it for us all. Dealt with it easily and you know the typical what you've heard of younger guys you know quick and easy. Most is symptomatic. So which is scary man because guys running around playing games and? You know getting in any Jim, they can get in and nobody's being tested. So you know and you're dealing with young people being symptomatic. So I think that that goes back to the PAC, twelve decision about trying to get us to a point where we get the rapid testing. Data will eliminate. The the a symptomatic spread that you're seeing on the sports teams. whether it was.

"Welcome the world's greatest podcast S-, cancellation endemic. Vision we've got. Some things that impact basketball said Greenberg has PAC twelve as announced that basically, not basically, they're not having any sports until the first of the Air January first in my view guess what basketball starts before that we're GONNA have Mick Cronin onto discuss. football canceling day by day things happening set. What's your overall view? To me, it's interesting I. Think you're going to cancel sport. Then I don't see how you have anyone on your campus and the reason I say, that is an I run I'm not that I'm not saying they should play shouldn't play. But if it's too dangerous to have a team fixed environment a on your campus over the particles, they have in place for a football team. That, you know what you do for the big ten. What are you? GonNa do in her sixty thousand students wandering around your campus with very little restrictions very little protocol limited testing, a limited contact tracing. How will you manage that like I think football coaches in greater opportunity to everyone in the league. Same Protocol has a greater opportunity to maintain a safe environment than it campus of sixty thousand people. Now Look I'm not championship bullish. Football, but if you're not gonNA play a sport. And you know what I'm saying how you open your campus to sixty thousand people from all over the world. Said I agree with that important I disagree with what you've said at different times where a college campuses a safer environment I couldn't disagree with people more than that. I think. I think sure the facilities, a safer environment. Well, there's one basketball team that I know of that came back everybody negative two weeks into being on campus in June shutdown cassava, another fifteen college campuses not to save US environment. Now, college facility when they're they're from noon to six, whatever is a safe environment I. Don't disagree with you on the campus issue. Here's what I say and I've talked to numerous people about this. The bottom line seth is liability. It's not the it's not the president said want don't WanNa play they want the money it's not the athletic directors and it's not the coach's lawyers have put a screeching halt to this when the NC Double A. in two senators said, look these waivers are meaningless they can't do. This is awful. We're not signing kids said that ended college football it just simply did because look when you have sixty thousand kids on campus or however many you have that's fine. But when the wrist outweighs the reward meaning, you go to a football game with no fans with no concessions with no parking, you lose a ton of revenue. One kid gets sick without protection one kid gets sick and God. Forbid one kid passes away. You've got a liability issue in the billions. The lawyers have told me Dan depending on the language of liability waivers they're meaningless and once the lawyers and the players and everybody said we can't sign these in my in what I've been told by lawyers actually do this including my brother college football was dead Jerry. You think how fast balls that vaccine is in a Different it sport. Less. Less guys right last guys I always thought the college football should make concessions and said, okay look we're GonNa go to sixty or seventy guys not one hundred home teams have a hundred guys crazy I don't know seth I I don't know I think. I do think this is. I think you'd agree in ending Taylor everybody would agree so much can happen like the next month I. Mean I follow stock, market pretty close you've got Pfizer Madeira my dearer. Lily all coming up. We're trying hell you got the Russian saying that they have a vaccine. There still two billion to twenty different countries now then I read about it and it's untested. Would you take a rush test third lasted? They tested thirty people. One Putin's daughter. I think I saw that I don't know about college basketball I know this. Spring football ain't happening. Urban, Meyer said on my show yesterday and he said it on big ten network yesterday yesterday as well. You can't ask players to go through two full seasons in calendar year. I I, don't know. But I know this once liability waivers and all that stuff happened. There was no way college football is point see like here's my thing. So here comes the month of November. He lets you let suits out a week for thanksgiving. You in essence create a bobble for college babble member. To probably the end of January. So I don't think students come back to the January because everyone's hoping for of action. got that. Came you then take the major conferences that have the money and either create a bubble environment like a big tank go to. Indianapolis could you go to Columbus? Somewhere and literally play a league season And take online classes because let's face it felt for several talkback athletes taking on my class several takes. I the best schools in America taking online classes, kids at Duke the baseball teams taken online class circled it last. So like battle be that'll be the interesting conversation on Amish listed. See for me what you do with your team. Now now they start school later backdrop. Trust us what do you do with your team? So like football right now is done at the big ten in the pack twelve. Are. They conditioning. Are they lifting allowed into phillies on the coaches? What? What are they are they all furloughed GotTa say money all coaches furlough because you know basically, they don't have any responsibility because Tina Chevy what are you doing your million dollar strength coach? What are you doing with facilities I mean? And I throw something else at you. For the general public gay guys like you may Taylor everybody. You get a refund from the big ten network. You can refund from the PAC twelve network. Without Live Sports, you think anybody signing up for the Big Ten network the PAC twelve network use the honest after mls in the Major League Baseball and an MBA. We don't have anything to the basketball. What do people do do various actions telling you it's a it's a different world and I'm not GonNa say it's catastrophic because there are certainly things worse in the world obviously but it is something that that has ramifications to your points t seven on center passively. Let me say let me ask you this I- liability. We don't want guys sick first off Kobe for a kid that age isn't a Dennison's I mean it just is I'm sorry it's the numbers the numbers back me up. You don't WanNa get it. You don't want to spread it I. I I've studied this. You don't want to give it to your grandmother I totally get that in fact, my birthday this week it I was GonNa have a party. My mom wants comes. So we cancelled the party's just we're going at the Golden. Girls Party. We're just having my mother, my mother-in-law couple of their friends and nobody from outside coming in 'cause I don't want to even think about being responsible but let me ask you this set. You ask some great questions we going into weight. Room every day. What if somebody gets it? What if somebody gets from outside like I mentioned, the One basketball team brings it into the weight room. Now, how do you know where you got this? Do they shut everything down set I I I'm fascinated to hear what mick has to say coming up and I know it just hit Mick arrive between the is twenty four, forty, eight hours ago. But I'm fascinated by what he has to say because these are all questions that are certainly pertinent they are. The answer neither be you yeah because. You open up campuses in that kids they're just normal states. They're interacting with more free time. We will not let people have equal that more free time your players have more chance to suck.

"The top. Can we get a situation where it comes? Full Circle and Scott drew wins superbeets Duke in the elite eight beats the we're at the game. Us Khatri do you have a message for the haters? And he's calling out your parents. They are the hater at least starts going off. She told me this demand up against coach cage. You make yourself you get a bigger presence. GonNa Baylor has to win the big twelve. They have tournament they had they need it so badly and Kansas does not need it in fact. I would argue as we did earlier they Kansas would be better off not having it Bill Self Lusa Oklahoma state yes. That's the thing because of all of that that the stage that we've just sat right there. That's what's going to make it so impressing when Baylor to Kansas and the title. No no no this year. Scott drew is a good coach. Gotcha was going. Top Scott. Drew is going to win the big twelve and then they are going to probably lose the second round the tournament but they will win the big twelve i. I would love that. It'd be cool. That's that's that's my number one story. I would love that. And I think I would love more that they lose the title game and once again like Baylor discipline thirty-something games and has no trophies to show for it but yeah no I'll be tuning in. It's Great Yeah. It'd be released no in the same also big twelve. West Virginia who is was really hot there for a moment has fallen off Connecticut bacteria. We'll find out they've done. They've historically have been pretty good in the big term have they not remember they have and then Texas tech is actually very fascinating fascinating team. Davi days your guys yes. He's the best and I think the crispy is ready to go. I think Texas Tech is the team that will knock out. Kansas in the tournament is if it ends up being aligned that way out on the back in front of me. Texas tech is a scary Chris. Beard in two years. It's become a coach is just absolute. He's Mr March as well. Yeah he's like the tournament coach absolutely terrified of that guy but he's crazy. How fast to happen? I'm not saying he doesn't deserve the reputation. It's just like usually guys have to go do it. You know five six seven years Give us these data points crispier. Like I'm here I'm GonNa this is. This is how it's going to happen at text now. Everyone's just like. Oh my God well. It's funny because everyone goes to Texas to like to these big schools. These huge contracts. Like you see Texas M. There's Buzz Williams is huge. Contract is great coach. You know not doing what Chris Beers doing here shock smart at Texas. Get all this money and I do Chris Beers doing right at Tcu Jamie down. They're not doing Chris Jacob. It's the Larry. Brown disciple got the whole system builder. Smu Not doing over to an exit tag. Just saying I fell in love with Texas Tech Fans at the National Championship last year. When every time they play old town guys sure that they made all these dudes and cowboy hats start putting their guns up a beautiful moment mascot that they crabs. I think I'm good what's going on. That was great. My Number One pick for the conference tournament. I'm most excited about because I'm a companyman. The Big East. Oh it's not because it's going to be on Fox. I promise that's that's not why I picked this. I picked it because the big east. The lawyers are leaving the and gone and all right. The biggest sucks. Screw the Big East. Listen here's what you need to know. I'm excited about the big because the big east. It's the biggest in the big ten for me in terms of the two best which want the best conference I. It's kind of a dump. The permits the Big Twelve. The shirt who actually cares you. No one cares. No one actually cares but The one the one difference is the big east. I will say if you're like a neutral fan and you just want to turn on and be the most entertaining possible. You just want whatever I said this earlier near the big issues the conference you WanNa Follow. That is that is the conference to turn it. They have six of the top thirty offenses on Kim pump tate. Have your attention sixteenths Llano probably Creighton. Relatively no I mean the usual suspects again. I kind of have a nice. Paul probably Saint. John's could knock them out pretty. You know so. It's the Big East is basically the big ten. If the big ten could score is how I would classify it like Marquette's tunnel fund like we said like for all the all the Shit we marquette fans and for Market Gardens Tournament. Yeah but he's electric. He scores a ton of points and they don't play defense. What more do you want? If you're just tuning in and wanting to be entertained for two hours to make a golf analogy for Marcus Howard. It's like he's a match-play player. You know what I mean. He's the kind of guy that you send out in a tournament atmosphere and you're like he can win us one great any other time but right now he's he's Sergio Garcia early on his career. Just sit him out. He's GonNa win. Win One zero on the obviously Seton Hall is Great. Creighton was red hot there for for a little while and then they lost a saint. John's kind of I don't know everyone lost their Mojo. Their loss exciting for fourteen percent game two in Saint John Charlotte Sixty three percent from three. Villanova is playing good basketball. At least they they did. Beat Villanova is is just a classic Villanova team that Jack's threes. You don't know what they're GONNA do they. Ohio State. Beat the hell out of them to save lives and dies by the three. Yeah and that's but that's what I'm saying so like if you don't care who wins any of these games and you're just like a fan wants to throw in some basketball and be entertained with Gus Johnson on the call are you crazy. It's got to be the biggest. That's my number one by mile. That's my pick. I like it could pick. I mean that's a good rundown there I would say I love that. We didn't even you and I did not even compare notes on this and yet we still came up with like different different. Yeah and different KIMBER candidates as well. That was good and the things that like. We always look for the tournament weekend because nowadays like I'm not even trying to play the game where I'm like. Oh I really care what happens in the mountain west term just like what actually matters. Let me pick spots. I do care about the Ivy League tournament. I really want to stress that I always watch that. I don't know why tweet at you be like sorry. Tale Leagues NOT ON TV watching. I guess I didn't care as much. Okay aright it's time to do it. Let's get to it. This is our interview with Mick Cronin I don't think anything else needs to be said other than I just want to reiterate I want to get ahead of IT I. I was very very nervous. State I. I can't stress this enough. I can't believe I can only imagine how officials feel going into game mccrone and his on the sidelines. Because I was just talking to him on the phone and I was.

"It's like when my dad would beat my ass and I'd start crying after the first one even though it didn't hurt. I knew that I knew that he would stop speaking. Because it'd be like you know. Obviously there it's sort of ood around him and come back and then catch you laughing. It's laughing right so if you make it look like it's difficult. Everyone's like wow. That's a real challenge. I think Dayton. Yeah the the play but anyway the date note that I'm interested with eighteen tournament Dayton has to has to out to get the one at once. I think San Diego State. That's the that's the big debate within say. Turn right now. Who gets the last one seed? Kansas Baylor Gonzaga already. Have them all locked up data into your state or fighting for the last one? I believe Senator Station News on purpose. I've been saying it. I think San Diego State wants the two seed in the West. That's their best. Course of action to get to the final four Dayton once once seen East Dean fans will love that they would love to have the one seed over versus heavy. I think Danes going east either way but point is Dayton has to went out to get that once. That's very important to them. And if they do if they run the table and I'm getting ahead of myself because I am going to Dayton for this George Washington game on Saturday but I'm assuming they're going to win that one and then they run the table and when the Eight tournament only one other time. Is that happened? Where teams gone undefeated in all regular season and conference play in ten Nineteen Eight temple team? So there's a little step for you so that that's what's at stake right here. And this is the highest ranking date since nineteen fifty five nineteen fifty-six number eight people. Yeah so we're making history. The flyers are making history and we're team dating and we believe in the flier so I love that and I also love Richmond. I think Richmond has a real shot to make the tournament even if they don't win the tournament so let's just keep pushing that narrative. Richmond's team eight. Ten cannot get one bit. I I can't I can't we will not stand for the number three for me. The MAC okay. So let's go and it's really just because of one team one team. I really like a teen tournament. That is also from Ohio Every MAC teams from Ohio. I think the Akron Zips all right. I like this Akron Timothy their consensus to win this the win the Mac. Obviously but we have a friend of the program Sean Hurley who we both know and he only bets Mac Basketball and so he basically tells me everything about them. I don't care about. I'd never cared about the MAC honestly until this man came into my life about four years ago. So I know about this zips. I know the zips are really good team. I I know that I'm Gonna. Watch them in the tournament because they're obviously GonNa win. They win the tournament. Lebron will tweet something. About how like those are my boys exactly Lebron Akron? Someone replied like named three players on the team. It'd be like those are. My boys are called my boys. The boys okay. Yeah so the Atkins zips Maxon Amal which by John Gross. Yes assistant at Ohio State when I was there he's the guy that he's Illinois. Yeah he's not he's he is the coach Ohio State Fun little note about him as you're watching the MAC tournament. He is the coach that recruited me to be a manager at Ohio state and he told me that Beat a manager. He explained it to me. It was basically like being on. If you're a manager you'll You'll practice against the team. You'll get to run scout team. It'll be great. You'll get to play a lot of basketball. I showed up and I was a rebounding wiping up Greg Jones boss. What so thank you thank you. John Gross Akron. Let's go zips win My number three is the big ten. We already kind of touched on it and I just wanted to point out. Wisconsin is still in the running for the the number one seat in this tournament. That could happen. The Wisconsin Badgers the Wisconsin. Bus Guts flying under the radar. I don't like it. I don't like what's happening. I think for that reason. They'RE GOING TO PURPOSELY LOSE INDIANA. They don't you don't. WanNa be the one if this Wisconsin team you do not want to be the one seed in the big ten tournament because that is drawing all sorts eyeballs to entering the NCA tournament. That's that's a recipe for disaster. You do not want that. It'll be nice for a moment. It'd be cool to be like we did it. We were number. We were technically that have one seat and the best conference in College basketball this year and have all and we're back and do that little thing but it's a problem moving forward. You do not want to be the one seat. If you're Wisconsin. What are we going to talk about Kobe? King right he left. It's basically it got overrun without it. I don't know about Greg targeting fires. We don't know the Kobe King Theory Man. They got him out of the team. And now they're making a run the ONC- potentially in the big ten. We did not mention Iowa in our first nation. The big ten when they were my fourth picks. I just wanted to point out. I was shot to make a run to the victim tournament. I think Garza's kind of controls tempo. Somehow so just want to point out. I haven't mentioned Maryland. I will not be trying to think of what else you left you definitely Nebraska Northwestern Minnesota. No you don't believe Marc car. Kimba Tournament Kimba candidates. Marcus car and Indiana. I don't think we I don't think he meant. What is the opposite of a mechanic? So Costa Coach Titus get get get back on the show the devante great the great at the the best part is what. Devante green is balling out. My Dad text. Text me about it. He's always like he's always got something to complain about. He's got no he's hitting everything but she got three turnovers right there so to more steals could jumps in passing lanes goes titus number two number two for you number two. This is one that I don't actually watch the tournament to the last game ever but I always intrigued by it. So that's why I put a number two and that's the Ivy League and they just added the tournament was like three or four years so now so basically Tommy anchor is a anyone. That's in the Duke Coaching Tree. Or you know in the North Carolina. Coaching tree to see where they go like a king rice goes to mom. I keep up with them. See what's going on. Tommy anchored Harvard. I pulled for everyone except for Harvard. You know what I mean. It's kind of like my perfect storm of I've never like Boston. I've always thought that those kids use education. I think they're better than people and so like Mit Harvard. Like that's right there. Let's pull against them. Always and I always liked the way that Yale played basketball. You know what I mean. You're you liked basketball. I think yoke and I'm sure whoever works at Google. Or whatever from Yale You know their sponsorship with Google coming up so this is for them. Also shut out to the Ivy League tournament. Sounds it's those your kids are doing stuff at Google and I think that's the game. I think that'll be ashamed of game. Harbor Shell so. I'm GONNA be fantastic. I have not been following basketball. Unfortunately I don't until the final game and then I see the right to have Ivy League I think they still do because forever. They didn't have a term like the one league that didn't have the tournament which is cool. The regular season winner got the automatic bid. And then now they do. I think there's just the top four so the still qualify for the tournament champions. Yeah okay well harv Harvey Yeller in this tournament. I do know that this is part of your PAC. Twelve update shit up. I'm pretty sure Harvey Yoga Complain that tournament. All right pretty good. Speaking of update. My number two pick is the PAC twelve. Well I fall in love with this league. It started as a joke. It was supposed to be a punishment that you would have to keep tabs on the PAC twelve because Carolina loss to Ohio state It has now turned into to me wishing that Ohio state lost in some weird way so then I could have been the one that's been keeping tabs on the PAC twelve lawyer. It's a madhouse. This league makes no sense. It has never made any sense but this year particular makes no Sarasota's favorite tournament are they. Yeah that makes no sense after what we've just seen CODA. La trip the very uninspiring basketball. Shaun Miller's phrase leading that is the back twelve and in my mind honestly the thing about my zone should be the favorite. So I think they're the best in the PAC twelve if you just look at. Ucla is in first place. And they're on the bubble you know it's funny when it happens the Tulsa the American. But like we're talking about a power conference here like what is going on Yeah it it it. It is a conference for anybody. Could beat any like basically the big east and the big ten and other deep conferences. Like that I guess those would be the two that are in the deepest rate The the big tag on those is that anybody can beat anybody on any given night. You don't know what to expect but usually when you're talking about those because every team is like good there's like a certain level of like any team can bring it with the PAC twelve. Anybody can beat anybody because on any given night Oregon could just play like absolute garbage and Colorado can get destroyed by cow on the road like you. You have no idea what's going to happen. That always seems to be the tag with the PAC twelve. And that's why I'll be tuning because you you have no idea what's going to happen when you turn the take. The twelve is anything is possible. Yeah we're serious literally in that is free and you're GONNA watch it. You're GonNa Watch your back. So this is number two the list. Pac twelve basketball. What's your number one? Okay so pack. Twelve is not my number one unfortunately for other people out there. That thought it would be number. One is the big twelve tournament and it's basically one man's ride and it's the right to the top and Scott drew. Scott drew is a coach that he's met. My parents was very nice to my parents. He didn't even admit that he was a coach for quite some time. Until my mom didn't even know pastor. No he just didn't say anything and then his wife he's not gonNA say anything but he's the coach of the Baylor Men's basketball team and my daddy mom like the guy that just lost the duke in the elite eight. This is twenty ten as his asking. Why lost that game. They're yelling. He's like explaining the rafts you know. Being WOOED BY COACH K. Not Listening to him. Love Scotch you and I think this is. This is the Fi- this is the rise to the top. Can we get a situation where it comes? Full Circle and Scott drew wins superbeets Duke in the elite eight beats the we're at the game. Us Khatri do you have a message for the haters?.

"It's all about strategy by winning enough games to keep your seed right but not winning the whole thing so you don't have to win straight games or whatever may be so it's like it's all about strategic placement and if you're a team like Duke that is fueled by an ACC tournament run to a title. Go forward but if your team North Carolina has been in the past lose in the semi final game or losing the second round of Georgia Tech. Throw it rolling care. You know what I mean and honestly that's what the ACC tournament is. I think collectively for a team like Baylor you know for the big twelve tournament that would mean Laffan win. I don't think Kansas does I know I think yeah. Kansas is in the same boat. Like just lose to whomever if you play. Texas tech in the semifinals. It's fun to just lose a game especially if it's a close one maybe just go down and get ready to be you know a one. C to make a real run to the mid West Right. I'm I'm absolutely with you. And by the way we're talking about Power Conference tournaments the lower conference obviously matter the winner gets automating bid. It's it's captivating theater to flip on. Espn U. or whatever CBS sports network. Three or whatever networker longhorn network our bosses are saying flex and Fox Fox Fox sports one sports to Fox Fox sports south? It's fun to turn it on and and and check the championship. And obviously there's a ton of stake in those games but it is weird because the power conferences usually like as you said it's it's basically just playing for seating. Obviously there are teams on the bubble who are trying to win to get in but for the most part when you get to the Power Conference Championship Games. Those two teams are already in the automatic. Doesn't really mean anything. It's just a matter of yes. Are we saving our legs? Do we want the trophy? You know every everyone will say they're playing for the trophy but you and I are smarter than that. We figured it out. Does it really matter like? Do you remember those runs? You know really in the annals of time do you remember the Two Thousand Eight ACC tournament? I mean I may remember it and you know I remember who wins big ten regular Season Championships. But is that remember? People remember the regular season because it was enough time for any kind of soak it all in and digested and take it in. But if you're a fan you've you've pulled up the standings like four hundred times for your refreshing. You're like okay. We're only three and a half back now. And then you didn't you pull up your schedule and like if we win these next seven in a row. We haven't won more than two zero. We ONLY LOSE. Three of the next seven will still stay. Yeah do that for three months or whatever it is so by the time you realized you start doing the math. And you're like Shit we're out you've already made note of like who's at the top and who you're chasing so that's probably like meaning just checked out your standing so you tell me why. I do like if nothing else. It's like a it's an appetizer. Gets you in the mode of just waking up turning on your TV watching College Basketball Day for getting ready for the real thing so with that. Mind let's go through our top five okay because there are five power conferences as we know. I'M NOT GONNA say which five so let. Everyone argue over who the fire. A lot of people sir. No let's do the top five. So who do you have a number five? What conference tournament are fifth most looking forward? I think it's already happening right now. In fact no it is and that is the WCTC in the West Coast Conference and that is there. There's two reasons why I care about that tournament. In general and the basically the two reasons are pretty easy mark pope in Byu. Those are the two reasons that is is because right. Now with this Hermit Gonzaga. You need to pull the maneuver just discussing. Data's not need to win that. Of course like they need to basically again put himself in position to make a run at the title already once. Yeah now's the time now. It's time to actually win the title. Mark you can kind of get the the quote unquote haters off off his back and do all sort of stuff but Byu and mark pope. They had the momentum. Things are going great. They kind of figured out who. They are yellow child's back. They have a full rotation they have a full team. We saw him out now. They've grown into this version. Byu which I think is a very scary team tournament but I would like them to win something that they can hang their hat out ahead on for mark pope this this. Byu Team this is our yard. Have a real identity and now the WCTC against Zag the final. That's here's the problem though after Zag. I'm with you that you you need to throw the game Throw the game. You need to throw the game for this season button. Are you worried that by giving Byu this momentum and having them beat you twice in one season five going into next year and beyond like Mark? Pope get something rolling in Ono. You've you've you've created Frankenstein. Mark few weeks decides Moscow. I'm sorry mark view is looking at all the chips on the table. And he's saying to himself. How do I keep? Do I keep flying to Japan and Australia to recruit all these kids all the time? How is corona virus going affect recruiter? Who knows exactly? How many athletic by. Seth Davis. Who Really Likes me Roy? Williams you know what I can do this for myself to be the next coach Carolina where. I don't have to fly to Australia and Japan to find the superstar talents and then develop them into stars to then try to win. Titles gets all these other blue bloods. It's an easier path That's that's a long term plan. You know pope okay so the WTC that's my WCC's you're risking. My number. Five pick is the American we witnessed tonight. Houston lost at UCONN AND TATE. Reprimand around converse. Hurley Reverend reprimand around what has happened in the American right now. Tulsa coach by Frank Eighth is sits alone in first place in the American toll. So if you go to any bracket on earth any any one of the there's there's a million of these days Go to any of them nobody has Tulsa on the bubble Tulsa has no her found on the bubble there. And that's not because they're on the right side they're not gonNa Tournament. They have a very long way to go to get their head coach. Mark Technique Eighth is the head coach. State. So the American physician America's position dating game I've ever heard one toll have to throw him a bone The American is fascinating for that reason. You're number one seed in this tournament is going to be playing for like they have to basically win out. It appears to get it automated bid. There's that there's also Memphis is still in this conference. I don't know if you're aware of this. I don't know if you remember. When at the start of the season Penny Hardaway declared that Memphis was going to win the National Championship Memphis? If you go to any bracket tallest website nowhere to be found on the bubble They have to win out to make the tournament as well so Tulsa has to basically what out Memphis has to win out. Houston is not playing particularly well. They lost at uconn today. The Amar I think Wichita states on the ball. I think Cincinnati's on the bubble. But I think they're probably end but who knows it's the bubble you never really know my There's a Lotta captivating stuff going on in the American and for that reason I will be tune in to see how it all unfolds. That's a pretty good play. Whatever maritime what does the American on like CBS Sport Dishes Take that ran? Just play that on. The commercials is the American Mark Titus. Dan Talk doesn't even know says the. Tuck I'll never we'll never get over that All right I love that. I love the American guy. I thought you were going to say something about Dan Hurley and Sampson like meeting each other. I W all these what I WANNA see in the final like. Who Do I want to see play each other? I WanNa see I wanNA see. I don't know if the I don't know what the bracket is. I don't have infront of me. I I don't know if it's completely decided. Either but I WANNA see Tulsa and Memphis in the title game and the winner gets automatic. Bid The losers out and penny versus. Frank. Aether be fascinating to say the least fascinating to say the least all right number four conference that you know the most about so. I'm basically just going to say in my mind. The tournament that I care the fourth most about the big ten tournament and I know a lot of people in the world are GONNA say well. Don't they have like ten teams? That are actually going to make the tournament. There's there's no consensus team. You know. There's a lot of hot teams. People may say Ohio State is a really hot team that you Illinois was a team that you would think about before. They Lost Ohio State of Michigan's team. Talking about obviously mentioned Michigan. State with cash is Winston. I think the big ten is fascinating because I think Michigan is a team actually like in the tournament because they are the big ten tournament team in my mind of recent memory. Racelis would be lying so for me. I'm watching Michigan. I'm going to be put Nama chips in on Michigan. Okay interesting but otherwise you know more on what else is GonNa Happen? I think produce GonNa win it. That's what purdue is going to do is the best team in the where's the bubble and purdue because they'll let that burst thoughts and prayers whoever gets it in it six seed and has to play in the first round losing sixty points. You're losing yeah produce a three seat and Macarena. It's a wrap it's over. Oh my God. Purdue is going to blow the purdue and then in the second round they're going to lose by fifteen but that first round game. Oh my God it's going to be it's going to be in the NFC. Did you see the Joe Biden Clip? That they put together that someone put in. It bracket announced that really the best part about it was. It was all accurate except said Virginia at the beginning. Which like it's GonNa Make Virginia's better. It would have been better isn't it? You know I'm one of those guys. I'm the well actually guys like well. Virginia is going to make it so technically should just cut. The Virginia was the first one he said that you could cut the video off right there in the started with what he said. North Carolina doesn't cigarette. I thought it was so funny We're GONNA stay at home. Just like the Bernie people who are at number four for me. I have the tin tate played in Pittsburgh. And here's why a couple of notes where we need to go date and obviously we're we're going to save the date not first of all. I'm GonNa Save Richmond and Rhode Island around the bubble which I'm fascinated with any conference tournament where you have teams that are on the bubble that are playing each other and and two teams inner? Not only one team can can win. The thing that is that is fascinating to me but also I actually just in general like eight. Ten is is data. They're not going to get one bid. Surely one of those other teams gotta get in even if Dayton like. I've dated Wednesday tournament. Surely they're going to get another richmond or Rhode Island right. I don't know it just doesn't feel right then released. I've Seen Rhode Island play earlier in the year. And I'm like a pretty good team and then Dayton played great in that game that I don't know I I WANNA come. America dismissed that game let. Here's the problem with Dayton. Is that they. They are doing this. They're beating teams so badly and we know that they. We know that they've had some close scores here. 'cause they do the thing really let team sing around. And then the upset and then everyone turns in and then they turn it on. But for the most part Dayton is is is killing these teams And I think it's doing them a disservice because like last night they destroy Rhode Island and people that aren't really paying attention. You just think to yourself. Wow Rhode Island really sucks so Dayton doesn't play anybody so I I think Dayton's overrated and it's like this like thing we're like because they're beating. I think that's why they do. The upset watch because they beat team so badly. Everyone thinks their schedule suck. So therefore they're overrated. When really if you make it look hard you know. It's like when my dad would beat my ass and I'd start crying after the first one even though it didn't hurt. I knew that I knew that he would stop speaking. Because it'd be like you know. Obviously there it's sort of ood.

"Their offense is is really really not playing. Well they today this morning. They were playing air force and got down big they needed. A big comeback ended up winning pretty comfortably but their offense is not doing well and and they're still playing decent defense and that to me again. Is the recipe for the Kimba Situation? Where if they continue to have these poor offense of nights at Nevada Malachi Flynn scored. What thirty six thirty eight was was it? I think it was thirty six thirty. That's why I think I haven't above miles pal. Not that. He's a better player. But that San Diego State. They only lost one game but they're not playing their best basketball right now. The the situation is is a perfect storm is brewing. Where they're in a second round game and the whole team just like ten minutes in the game just looks at Malachi. Flynn like you have to say wessels looking at me. He's like just take like I can't do this and he's like all right. I'll do it. And then he scores forty points and and and they went. But I don't think I don't think they're gonNA win the national title. I don't think he's a better player or anything. Like that but I I think that situation is Boris. Diaw candidate is Matt Mitchell to be the board that will be my pick. Matt Mitchell for San Diego State. All right my number one pick one that. I'm really excited about because It's a lock and it's been a lock since we basically started this since relaunched the podcast there has been one team. There's been one central focus. And that is the redemption of Bill Self of William Self demand that refuses to go to the San Antonio Spurs out of pride and out of respect for Adidas in Kansas. Yes and I say that in that order out of respect for Adidas and for cancer did you. Did you see that Okay go ahead pig. Let you finish Carter that team. You know who devon dots and a guy that's going to basically come into his own because as a bouquet is obviously thirty one points four hundred career high senior night his last game in Lawrence Kansas but Dotson is still figuring out a little bit. I think we've seen him play it as at his worst when he put his tray Jones earlier in the day he has those teams get over. I like the whole redemption story of Kansas. I liked bill self in the tournament and I liked Dotson to be the Kim McCain and that carries them to title. It's really interesting. The last couple of weeks how Kansas has emerged. We felt like they're the best team all season. But even then there's a little hesitancy 'cause you're like Baylor's obviously really good San Diego State was undefeated at the time. Dayton is playing really well but it feels like the last year we saw them fall apart. We saw the classic blowing out Michigan State and then as the season we're on you know we'd lost the Gerald Vic and their whole team kind of Blue Gore. Grimes ended up transferring. But we've reached a point though where Kansas seems to be the the runaway favourite. It's like it feels it. It's not quite the severe but it's starting to trend that way too when you start paying attention to how people are talking about this tournament and the Landscape College basketball it's like positioning towards the Kansas versus. Everyone else veal going into the tournament. Which is wild and to that A similar trajectory I would say is to me. Dotson was the best player on Kansas all season and it feels like the last two or three weeks as a bouquet. Everyone's like you know as a bouquet might be a first team. All American DOTS isn't really. I feel like if you people Nessim who the best player on Kansas is right. Now as bouquet would get like seventy percent of the vote and I don't necessarily think that's been true the entire season he was benched at one point. Yeah but I guess that might go hand in hand that might be why people like Azabu playing so well recently the now people are like. Oh my God. If Kansas is getting that as a bouquet to go with that dots into those athletic wings that they have and the great defense they can play their far and away the best team in college basketball. So Yeah I'm with you let Dotson is good enough But I don't think gonNA ever. I don't think there's ever going to be a game where where Kansas is going to be like dots and we. We need you to carry us and see. I think that may happen. But it's like as a bouquet. I don't trust the health aspect I mean. He's got a little where it's like. If Azabu gets in the tournament in an game he goes down or something like foul trouble. Wholesomeness like eight six to eight minutes of real actual game action and they need someone to score points. Thousands got the ball in his hands. Let's see what happens. I think he can do it. And you have to win at the end of the day. Do you have to win the title? That's the whole point of the Kim Kennedy S. Actually win so Dotson is true. He does have to win we. We're all over the place de Malachi. Flynn I don't think it makes sense. You know what I mean. Maybe that's why like Malachi. Flynn is a canvas. Because you're trying to pick someone who like it would be kinda surprising if they won the title and I think the I think maybe Malachi flinders number one for me because it would be very surprised if San Diego State won the title and I think the only way they can win the title is if you just goes absolutely nuts so that might be my number one pick but anyway it's not my number one pick is a guy in a similar situation a guy who also played the champions classic but a similar situations dots in in that his big man is playing out of his mind right now? It is Cassius. Winston of the Michigan State Spartans who Michigan State in general is is peaking at the right time state. I'm not sure if you've been paying attention Mr March. Mr Marches here. Never left Michigan State is going to win a piece of the big ten title. They might win it outright. I don't know how the math is going to think like Maryland has to lose Michigan now. Wisconsin HAS TO LOSE IN INDIANA. But anyway they're gonNA piece of it They Vegas thought they're the best team in the big ten all year. Maryland fans disagreed for stretch and the now Maryland. Fans like all right. Maybe you're right but the cat but no caches Winston as a senior. He's a point guard. A senior point guard who has the final four last year? He's obviously can score in bunches. We know all of what happened at the start of the season with his brother and his brother committed suicide and all of the the kind of weight that he's been carrying that I envision a scenario where he's he it seems like they've turned the corner Michigan State and and and and I talked about them for a long time. We were like we thought like like. They weren't winning like they should have been whatever was it. Adversity was it injuries. Lankford is out. They were counting on link for plane and he obviously has been out all year. There came a stretch where was like I. Don't think any of that stuff. I think they're just playing basketball. Like adversity and injuries had nothing to do with Aaron. Henry played poorly or rocket. Watts like being so inconsistent. All that kind of stuff there. They're all seem to be playing well right now but I think Winston now that now that everything is kind of fall into place for him I. I saw an article today. Tom Izzo was talking about just kind of how hard it was to coach Winston. And now he's had a heart to heart with the Winston family about like because when we discuss that too like. How can you yellow? Kate like if cash just went since in practice and he's not one hundred percent. How do you really yell at him when you know given what he's been through and and it seems like they figured all that out and they they kind of have it all in line at the right time. And I just envision a world where caches Winston is sort of playing with House. Money in the sense that like. He's got a bigger picture of what light what matters in life and this game doesn't matter if we lose who cares. There's more important things in life so I'm just GonNa go ball out have some fun. See what happens and Oh would you look at that what happens. I scored forty and we won the national title. And it's been twenty years since we were national title for the Big Ten Michigan stated. We talked about that at the beginning of the year outside of the Kansas storyline with bill self getting redemption the Michigan State. Big Ten story to get back into the main fold. Give you get back in the national spotlight with caches. Winston carrying the team made a lot of sense. I mean it sounds like okay. I'll check the boxes here. They fell apart for low period of time as we both know but again Mr Marches here tomorrow April though. That's the problem is Mr March April. I think we think we do. We don't know there's lots of things that are going on in the world. I mean there are. There could be who knows if what if what if the final four this is. I. I'm calling my shop Michigan State. Whatever regional Michigan state gets in their steamrolling everybody then the other three regionals are absolute chaos. And then we'll get like we get a two thousand eleven all over again. We're like Michigan State is what are they going to be a four seed maybe three seed? Let's say yeah. Whatever their Yukon there you go that was Yukon and thousand eleven. There are three seats. They steamrolled through the the regional. They make the final four and then every other region is like eleven a seven and a nine or whatever it is and we're going into the final four initiate cancels it because of Corona virus. And then they're just like sorry. We're just not going to crown a champion this year and all the Michigan State fans are like. Are you kidding me on a platter for us to claim it uses? Do you have to put a newspaper for the Detroit? Free Press says we are the national. Jp Yes the the written word you will be national champions. You put it up. I think that's what you gotta do. I think the big legitimate. I think the we are the Champs Michigan state roles to another net while we're power Mickey. Thanks should we powering conference tournament for most excited about because there are some going on right now? Obviously some of the smaller ones are going on. I I I talked earlier about seeing state needing a comeback against air force but the power will start next week so this is the last show. We're going to do before the power conference tournament starts. We'll do show Tuesday right before the the full power conference. I thought this was the most of start two. Acc starts on Tuesday or they start on to talk about it. All right. We'll keep talking about. I thought one of them starting on Monday as maybe. I'm thinking of the old big east when they had Mike Quadruple bias. Look biggies if they could they still be planning attorney right there? You know what I mean. This term would never ended if it was the old biggies. I can't get into whatever. Maybe we are doing. One show but I I I'm going to Dayton this weekend for the game and I will be very hunger for that before before that happens. What what tournaments are we most excited about before I guess before we get to do. Let's set the stage a little bit. How how much do conference hermit care to you because you're an ACC guy the ACC famously? Only crowns the conference tournament champion if you win the regular season you don't actually get a hang a banner even though literally every program hangs a banner and everyone recognizes it. Duke fans on twitter. Say That doesn't actually count so as an ACC guy is the ACC tournament and conference tournaments in general do they matter the ACC tournament used to matter when it was strictly in Greensboro and then a may have the name of Jim Boeheim so that he would never try travel down to podunk town of Greensboro North Carolina and Changed Things and again you know northern decided to start playing in the ACC gentle started playing in the Barclays Center and other places. But that's a different story to me. Conference tournaments are..

"All right. Let me ask you this. What is a reasonable expectation for? UCLA UCLA this year. And then let's go two years down the road the year three in the Mick Cronin area. What's reasonable? Ucla reasonable then make mansell but this year this year. I think it's reasonable again as I look in college basketball. I'm not sure anyone has jumped out of the pack. Twelve is going to be really bad. I mean Oregon State had a good one the other day for all Arizona's problems man Arizona's really. Yeah those three freshmen goes any and all the all the nonsense from the trial l.. And all that. That's fine but on the court they just walked up on Illinois Illinois in the big ten is supposed to be kind of the team. You know what I mean not the best team but the up incoming hey look underwood now. Third Year DIS- sumo. You Got Georgie. You've got these guys got whipped out account that big foul cocoa coffee coffee copper urn is. That is a large human when you look at the PAC twelve. I think I think the PAC twelve is going to get sixteen internment. You're seasonal tournament I think. UCLA can get internment Washington's. Go get them. Kim Oregon State Tournament I think Oregon State I think the coach is pretty good. He he can shoot a tranquil. Really trying I I'll tell you what about Arizona Nico Manion Josh. Green and nausea Zeke nausea. You got your damn notes. Put your glasses on. I mean you can't see Zeke. Nashi limited that dude is really good. He's saying that is I think they make the double A. Tournament. I think seven teams will go from that league and I think that three years. I think they'll have a team that can be a second weekend at what point at UCLA. And I've actually talked to Brad Stevens about this at at Boston with the Celtics. I mean he walks in he sees two thousand six championships and whatever there is up there. I mean at what point. They're playing good. They're very good. At what point did you gotta get to a final four when you're at UCLA or in Boston. Do you gotTa Win a Championship Championship. I don't care still hard to get to the front of four but at UCLA look at the history the their own amidst the way. No you said that to me and and so I think in near five. He's got to be knocking on the elite eight. At least are those people be losing their minds doing more now. I mean they're chartering now he has access access to planes. He's you know they have to there in the practice facility. Now they've they've done things to conduct their business. My favorite line investments got equally your expectation. Well you know what. UCLA's investment than equal their expectation for a really long time now. They've started to up their investment and conductor businesses. Like the Dukes Carolina's Kentucky's in Kansas is the Oregon's the ZAG is because they weren't even conduct their business like that. I mean well you know Lord told me when he was offered the Indiana job when they hired Calvin Sampson in two thousand and six. He said Dan is before they had cook hall. Indiana he goes we were at the final four. I said Mark. Did you ever anticipate turning down one point five million year. which is what he offered to coach basketball? Indiana because he was a schoolteacher. He said Dan I got better job. He goes on a better facilities because we fly everywhere because we just beat them in the tournament he goes. I don't need to leave and I don't need all you crazy people at Indiana sending me emails and writing letters on my house. Don't need it. Yeah exactly right but mick did need an lucky loves Cincinnati. Dad is right there. I mean I it was great every time you can do to Cincinnati game. You can hang out with his dad whose dad was great talking ball but it gets to the point where he needed a new challenge. And this'll be the ultimate challenge. This is make or break you. I say you can't get another job. Offers it offers Nevada but this is make or break coach coach. What he's getting paid and what he's made? I'm not saying financially. I'm not saying like here's the will either. You will the national chart. The job will eat. Yeah I mean it'll it'll it'll break you down and it's the way it is but you know what today most job I like that. I think our jobs every football coach Arkansas. Two years boom out you know will attack it from two years out. I mean here's the deal. You GotTa win you gotTa Windy Like and then all these presidents that are sitting on their high horses. If you're winning they're gonNa you know what we'll wait. What happens with the FBI Vasquez? Yeah you know what you know. We'll we'll we'll we'll we'll weather the storm we're going to take on the subway so like you know. As long as you're winning at high level it is amazing those academicians. That's it at the top of the hill. They just want you to win so they can take that money and reinvest in the university and use your team as an opportune. Now if you're on the bottom line too many days in a row that's the problem the bottom line the bottom line will get you the ticker tekere get your fired. Rick Pitino now have you could've stayed off the bottom line. It would have been all right Rick Pitino. I want to get your thoughts on this coaching. The Greek national team. He's trying to do anything. You can want to be associated associated with the team and number two because he wants to show he can coach adult so that people can finally understand that even though he was a different coach a long time ago he can transition position. Would you coach the national team against the United States. My brother coaching natives. That's not you yeah you would. I don't know I've always thought I would never WANNA do that. Well here's my thing and USA basketball coach and seven years ago. I it's been seven year. Yeah seven seven years ago I I call Jim Boeheim said don't let's do anything with USA Basketball Court coach. And here do this at four hundred wins. I want you to come L. deems. I had a little bit of success. Well you can't do that because unless you're a high school coach or currently a college coach you can't have any affiliation with USA basketball if USA basketball want me talking grab Greenberg dockage. WE'LL TAKE I. I don't know if you are somebody that controls basketball in some small country somewhere. We will take your team and qualified for the Olympics. Exact will give the money back back. All right it's said Greenberg. Dan dockets sound a little different. Because well quite frankly we taped the first half of this podcast. ESPN and now. We are back in our accessible as pin. I'm back in the studio in Indianapolis but seth let's recap a little a bit of Gavin Games First VCU and L. SUV. See you got to win home and you and I talking off air. We got a dog. We talked the Fan van base. It'd be see you know. Yeah I'll tell you think about everything that's gone on college basketball last few years the FBI investigation and everything. That's gone along with that. The different hearings but you know group has made a greater statement about the travesty of what has happened in college basketball than Vcu fans. I think about it. The fan statement last night The manner in which they were dressed the number of different signs basically made a statement and said you know what we know. What is happening is here right in front of us it potentially maybe even happen my own campus but the statement they made regarding LSU regarding their former coach will wade was significant dramatic impact fo I thought ESPN and did a great job of documenting it but the reality is their staple was far greater than even the administration at Lsu well the administration at Lsu? Let the coach hang out and fired the fire. The athletic director I mean. Lsu showed what they are about. I think and let a guy will wade stay good for people. Forget we'll wait coach. VCU right I mean we'll wait was activated. Va Coach. You left a message. Coach Chaka smart and The interesting thing about the game so so they made a step in their state court because under will wade. VCU got away from habit. They got away from their culture. Got Away from their toughness. I think there were two hundred. Fourteenth in defensive. Turnover percentage bike road comes in microbes is a career coach. Mike Rhodes is a guy that cut his teeth and worked his way up the coaching profession. He has an interesting system because they played havoc in the full court and a little bit more pack line in the half court but last year eighth in the country and turnover Senate defensive end I mean those dudes were flying. Hi I'm talking about flying around all over the court you'll they play hard. They have great trust. They shot it much better than they've they've shot recently. These hugh is a hard playing team. That is difficult. I'm not really difficult. Match up with Marco Santos Silva monetize. That's a throwback. Frontcourt dude a throwback front court dude just puts a body on your rebounds the ball finishes around the basket doesn't try to do anything you can't do. They force twenty six turnovers team. I mean they were flying around. And here's the other thing that's crazy to me you know you're playing. VCU You know the back to their culture and identity and identity is a big thing to me all right. How can you not be more prepared to deal with that pressure being? You're part of that system way back with shock the smart. I thought I thought it was an interesting interesting game. Great Win for VCU too. I thought it was really GonNa ask you because I was watching the game and I was kind of flipping back and forth. Ohio state was playing a little but at the same time. We're going to get into the state. Who are the announcers on the game you know by? I'm an SPATOLA Thomas Heart. That's Nice Bettolo was absolutely great in documenting the Wiseman thing and he he made the comment that if you don't have rules you have or if you don't if you have rules and our ship aren't going to follow the rules then you you have chaos and I wanna say man Chris. Tola was absolutely fantastic during that game documenting that and he was he couldn't be eight more. I we've talked at length about wise men and the whole deal and now it looks like Wiseman and Penny Hardaway are going to forfeit their highschool championship Eh. It's a total mess. It's an indictment of college basketball where we're our that. The more I see of this Penny Hardaway thing lying under oath and all that kind of stuff or at least according to the commercial appeal wheel documenting that he wasn't forthcoming under oath But anyway having said that I thought they did a great job and they deserve is so it's great pass. They deserve to the state. Ohio State Villanova Ohio State. To me. I don't think the big ten's very good. I watched purdue last night they were awful. Half the seventeen points in the second. Half but Ohio state is very very good and it was one of those games. Got The phone with the staff at Ohio state and it was one of those those games where you don't see very often seth. You had a few of them. I had a few of them. It was highlight after highlight. It was not only a good play. They got off nineteen to three but and made a bunch of shots but there was never a time when Villanova was going to make a comeback. So I'm going to ask you this number one. I no everybody points to Villanova got their brains beat out last year in this at home and okay fine but they had to pros last year. At Villanova is Villanova Vaa a legitimate top twenty. Because after watching that last night I I don't know where Villanova gets really good other than they have a terrific coach in a great culture south. Yeah I think they're going to get better. I mean here's his shows High Robertson but can make algorithm. Yeah yeah that's good question. I don't know like last year. They won the big east after getting toward A. Can they do that this year. I think they can't space lia starting to Freshman Brian Anton will end up being an impact player. He's still waiting to get cleared. Probably after Thanksgiving what we're hearing now a Jeremie. My Robinson is going to be really good player. I think a little bit overwhelmed by inexperienced Physical Ohio state team. But they've got enough pieces. I mean. Yeah they they lost. Look they lost Phil booth. They lost Pasco was playing really really well for the Golden State Warriors They need players wars but yeah I think they'll get better. Here's I think it before we get in Ohio state. I agree with the Ohio State but fans of college basketball. This is Seth Greenberg. Please pay attention take notes because this this is very tough all.

"It's been eventful but it's been fun getting a chance to become friends with Michael Warren guys. He's a tremendous person whether it's Bill Kareem. Don McLean's talked to our team name guys. Were you know obviously Russell Westbrook aaronow follow the wear twins The had so many guys that have addressed our team Tracy Murray Ryan Holland's so there's just from all different eras my message. Those guys is it. Is We gotta stay together. You're you're you'RE NOT GONNA win every game you know and these because some of those dudes did. Yeah and that's the hard thing you know the hard thing I I know Dan. You're a cubs fan or you sir. Did you read with Joe Mad. And he I I I try to read what manager say you know. Not that I'm loving love and baseball but He made a statement at the end of his tenure in Chicago. At least the mind once stretched has trouble returning to its original form look the minds got stretched at Ucla. You won ten titles in eleven years so my minds were stretched and it was. I thought it was unbelievably. The profound statement In extremely true so I think it time has gone by. We're at a point. Now people realise here. How great of a job? Ben Howland did I th. That's now a prevailing thought of man. You know been really did do a great job when he left here The team he left at six guys played in the NBA that he left when he left here four of them are still playing in the NBA. So I think you you know may maybe time and experience is helped the mind. Get back to a normal form but Hey you know I'm like our fans now. I mean you know I. I'd like to try to compete for the National Championship. I mean that's part obviously part of my decision to come here is opportunity in recruiting You know being able to recruit four and five star guys that have an open mind to come into play at UCLA. Like 'cause you you you're obviously you're at a great campus. You have the great tradition and you know the bel airs across the street and Beverly Hills is on the corner so You know there's a city here to California to become like aristotle vowing. It's it's unbelievable you like you like that. I'll I'll tell you what the that's impressive coach Doc. It's you like the Joe bed. I love the Jomon was I was looking at bald head. Right across from thinking man of that brain expanded did where would it go. I don't know that dust my head does your guy. You're going to cut your grass. That's hard you're gonNA. Demand people tried to use that against recruiting. Oh yeah yeah you know it's almost now It's almost now. Hey He's GonNa coach. He's he's GonNa he's GonNa actually coach. You know like that's a negative you you know but what I do when we bring recruiting is a so I have different a lot of friends in the NBA. Bob Myers was the main guy that probably hired me along Josh rebels and Dan Guerrero was You Know He. He had conveyed to me. His retirement was imminent So I kneel OC- as one of my closest closest friends is why it runs Portland Trail Blazers so I'll pull out a place. She and you guys know the NBA. They have seventy seven plays with forty counters. You know I mean they do they and they have seven different ways they cover the pick and roll they you know they were versus. You know certain college teams they to play the same way every time so Yeah but you're right. People tried to use the fact that you're actually coach against you which his factual extremely comical? Because when you go to the pros you're gonNA have to be able to retain information and understand strategy and And have have a knowledge of the game. Is You guys know the higher up you go into game the more mental it becomes so But you're right now. People will try to us. You know. We're going to let you do whatever you want. That stuff's out there. I mean you know you hear everything in recruiting. I mean it just is what it is. It's never it's Never GonNa Change but ah but it is almost like a A negative He's he's GonNa coach. But it's like well you don't think that Nick nurse coaches the raptors. They changed their whole defense on the airplane to La. The play against Kawhi Leonard and trapped him every time last night. I don't know if you guys watched any of it. It was on belay. They tracked him literally almost every time he touched the ball. So you gotta be able to adjust You're not just going to be able to run up and down. You guys know that. But hey recruiting is is what it is. That's why you one thing you guys you. You don't get overpaid like us. But you don't have to deal with that stuff to do this stuff. Sit Talk to great people. Hey let me ask you about recruiting Cincinnati. I always felt this way. I always felt there was a real loyalty in and around Cincinnati among the basketball community to the University of Cincinnati. I don't know why felt that. Make but I felt that going back a long long time difference Cincinnati and and now you're in La l'amour open guys are going everywhere you got USC in there. What's the biggest difference? What's the biggest change I? Well I think you're right about that. The problem with dead in Cincinnati was. That's within the two seventy five loop because outside of their you're in big ten country For the most part and if you went south you're in Kentucky Good luck there Louisville can't even beat them so in the ACC so and they sell out twenty two thousand every night. So you know I. It's that loyalty was real. They're here The the entire west coast. It's just not as polluted with Top fifty programs. I mean just just statistically you the ACC the big east The big ten the SEC are all for the most part east of the Mississippi you know and then the big twelve is in the plane out here. I mean there's only so many power five schools. There's there's twelve of them you know now Gonzaga's obviously you know really an elite program and some others have done done really really well But at the end it's just a numbers game now you know in La Snoop Dogg. said it may sign with the clippers. He said slow down the hierarchy of basketball and his tweets. One of the funniest things I've ever seen he had the Lakers one. Ucla to like the spark like the sparks. Three the drew league for I mean. He put the clippers down like savvy. He was you know it's new idea. I guess he's a big. He's a big Lakers fan but They could end up both the plan to in the Western Conference finals this year. But it's a big city damn it so much different it's so vastly different here. There's so many players Deke. You don't don't WanNa miss the next Kawhi. Leonard is really. You know my thing you know trying to get out. Can we get out enough actually trying to practice in the during the winter we're going to practice in the morning warning which is going to help us Not to year will practice at nine allows my staff and I had to get out more high school games and practices. Because because you don't WanNa Miss Quite Leonard and Paul George. We're both from so you know I wouldn't say Paul from Paul. Is He from Palmdale. Yup Yep You know so I mean that's that's an hour and obviously mine. Russell was from San Bernardino. The House we emphasize Long Beach State was cafe. Ah Springboard at the great career Seth Greenberg Coach Doc. It's a little more solid when Michael pushed him off though sal come come on again that call. Here's the one thing that is going to be in your advantage. I think that you and I always talk about that. And the most important part of recording and this is the most the least understood understood. Part of recruiting is evaluating like to me like having assistant coaches actually watch guys play. And don't listen to the Gurus having assistant coaches. which is that can kind of see what I called evaluate up? You know. You're going to be wrong sometimes. But evaluate up. Now you're going to have to recruit the best players and you'll probably be up to hurt nationally Shenley because of those four letters. Those four letters are pretty powerful. But you have a veteran staff that understands how to you look at a player and evaluate. Who can play for you? Also well you know I just think winning is winning gets lost and recruiting. You know you can win in Recruiting rankings. You can win Media Hype you better win and You Better Win Games like you'd better win when the season starts at the that's when so there I mean it's it's a profound statement. You know the guys who recruit or the guys that show up I I think is a Yogi Berra statement but when you really think about it you know so I don't care where he guys ranked if all you can do is run and jump and he shows goes up and you said well. This guy can't shoot. He can't pass. Well you recruited him. That's the guy you recruited could run and jump now. You can't when he shows up you can't think you can pass shoot so you know you gotTa know who you're getting. I totally agree with you. Evaluating is everything you know. Cincinnati was hard for us to get elite skill so so we had a choice You get get guys. Were not really good at anything or get guys who were really hard. Workers Workers with character and toughness that we thought we could develop into winners Now we did you know I. I knew kind of Washington score when he transferred. I knew Jacob Evans had elite skill. The new Sean Kilpatrick was a score but with other guys was we. If it came down to it we were GONNA try to go with toughness character in guys. We would play to win so I think that's a skill I mean it just is I think that's probably the most underrated skill when evaluating players you know will the guy played a win. And you know Bob Huggins told me that. There's two kind of players guys help you win in guys that don't and defending is a skill Thinking is a skill in basketball passing is a skill making your teammates. Better is a skill Being coach -able skill bill. So I I think it's too much of that gets lost in evaluation to be honest with you. I agree the MIC yet. A best. I appreciate you Grayson. Thanks as usual. We'll have to do this more often. Especially change of time the three hour difference day you're back on the radio yet. Man took go off. Come Samy brothers. You could've stayed at my house. I would've loved to but I l. hasn't who couldn't fly so it my suspension coincided with the new hip so it all worked out.

"All right. It's about twenty four hours since Mick Cronin announced woods deporting leaving the building on like Elvis at headed to Los Angeles. Booked a book a ticket for the west coast as Gladys Knight might say, he's the new head basketball coach at UCLA couple of thoughts. I first Cronin was always an enjoyable interview. Always seem to be someone who was intent on giving you if not a long winded, certainly an honest answer to your question. And somebody that I think really and truly loved his university. I don't think there's any question about that. He was a joy to deal with. In the media absolute joy to deal with. And when you got them away from media interview sessions, he was just a really fun guy talked about anything talked about basketball and philosophy and personality a players and things like that. But it's obvious that it's time here in Cincinnati had run. Its course it was obvious that he did not feel appreciated by the university. It was obvious that the university was not going to be upset if Mick Cronin decided to hit the bricks, and so that's why he is no longer the head basketball coach at the university of Cincinnati. It's pretty straightforward. I don't sense that. There was a lot of patients for Mick and his performance inside the NCAA tournament from certain people inside the university hierarchy and the people that donate money. I don't sense that that was an overwhelming number of people because I think a lot of people look it would make Ronin day-to-day appreciated. The fact that he made the NCAA tournament for all those years in a row, and even though there was no success inside the tournament. Even though there was only one Sweet Sixteen appearance. I think by large if you know the game of basketball, you know, that the guy can coat the question is at what time do you leave the building because invariably everybody leaves cata Perry has a contract for life. Well, that's great. We all know two things. One contracts are only as good as the paper. They're written on and two coaches get itchy feet, and who's to say that at some point John Calipari doesn't wanna go someplace else and coach at some other level of basketball. It's just foolish to think that way. And that's why you see coaches, Hoppy here hopping there helping everywhere and saying before they leave or I really like it here. This is where I wanna be. I can't see myself anyplace else. And we all know how that games played. We do it's not it's not anything that you look at it and say, oh that all he's going to be there for life. He's never going to happen. Well, no, okay. Believe that if you want, but an actual -ality that rarely happens. So why did mitt Cronin? Choose now to leave. And what was it about UCLA other than the legacy that's out there, and we'll his act play on the left coast because now you're going to be dealing with or you will be dealing with. If you want to be successful. Mcdonald's all Americans kids that have been elite basketball players and coddled along the way. And now all of a sudden here is this little five foot six five eight in whatever height is screaming with his carotid artery about ready to explode in his neck. Well that play on the left coast will have to change his style. And of course of great interest here in Cincinnati is what who's next who's next somebody that understands basketball inside out. He's been a good guest of Mike program for many many times over the course of the last year, and I really enjoy his stuff on the athletic dot com. I'm not blowing smoke up. Justin, Williams, skirt. I just I like what he does alike is approach. I like that website. And I don't know why I have to say these things because he agreed to come on this show yesterday. So I didn't have to like, you know, feather his nest for this. But it's great anytime. We can get Justin. On the acute hearing centers dot com hotline, and we have them there right now just in good afternoon. And how are you on this glorious day? I'm doing great the introduction. Yeah. I'm not surprised that Cronin left. It was fairly evident when he couldn't get a contract of his liking. And apparently when it came back in August, it was not to his liking not surprised that he left. But are you surprised that he landed a job as as blue blood as UCLA? I'm not surprised. Surprised it happened yesterday. The way that it happened. His name. Kind of came to a close and other head coaching. Name. A lot of success. LA? I think them coming in here this year and by twenty nine points. I'm sure. Took notice of that. And it seemed like as time to act on. All the word from administration was that they were working on. Hoping to get something done these jobs. The longer went on a west likely. It was that he was going to go somewhere. Right away. A lot went down there coaching search. Rick Barnes that. No. After a number. They called Cronin. A couple of weeks prior about the job. I don't know how. In that case. But that you know, what's your number? They were a little bit. Desperate or just wanting to make something happen quickly. And whatever whatever it was they met that. And I think it was they hadn't got that. On longer than anyone. We wanted to happen. And we're going to meet demands. I think the combination of feel. Giving him whatever it was that he wanted and just how long things. Why not try this? Why not go somewhere? He's been in Cincinnati. Chance to go to a big program a legacy program. All makes sense. The one thing you said in there that you were surprised that it went down the way it did yesterday. And I again that's coming out of out of the university of Cincinnati as well, they were they were surprised does does that lead. You to believe that Mike bone was blindsided by this. Did you do I think he was I kinda think that he thought this thing have been put to bed about Cronin going here going there, the Virginia Tech job was spilled two days. I guess before he decided to take the UCLA job. I'm wondering of bone was caught off guard by this. I think a lot of people. You were caught off guard when it happened yesterday. And that includes administration that clues staffer. Okay. And that includes basketball players, I think as time went on everyone thought that they had. So I don't think. Administration was unprepared or isn't prepared to your coaching. I know his name. Coming up a lot. But I think the way it happened yesterday. I think everyone had thought that gun at that point kind of resigned to the fact that. We'll make it happen. Maybe. That that wasn't a good enough answer. Yeah. Well, when they gave him they gave him the the contract offer that I believe it was Mike because course, he wrote in the sporting news about five days ago when they gave him a contract offer back in August. And basically, and this will sound kind of strange for God that has who's bald? They they wanted him to take a haircut. If you if you if you believe what all that came out for their, and I believe, Mike decor. See I I know he would not white anything. That was not factually accurate. So I would think if you're Mike bone, and you're offering contract that in essence has a pay cut. You would have to then think if your bone. Well, he may not take this. And if he doesn't take this then where do I go after this? And I'm sure that he has a list in his drawer. Okay. This guy this guy this guy, and this is one two three four. So I I'm guessing that that bone has a list of potential replacements. And I'm also guessing if we look at the way he went about hiring, Luke fickle. He's not going to go that that route where you go to like a third party. And they look for somebody for you. I think this is strictly in house search that will probably be tempered with opinion from some folks that that that have been there for a while, and maybe from Oscar Robertson, and maybe from other people, I think this is all in house. Don't you? Say in that. From those people to it'll be interesting to see if an try to appease, those people now that he's gone. Beyond totally know all the details in terms of the contract that was offered earlier in the year, and how that impacted this decision. And I don't think it's anyone one person's fault. I don't know that the relationship between Cronin and bone the deciding factor. That was the deciding factor. Maybe in some ways, it was time for a change and current had an opportunity, and he was able to take it. But I think I know that the university has coaching search has. And planning to to work fast. Let's talk about Cronin in Los Angeles. I mean, it's a huge city UCLA has a storied franchise, but he's in competition with many many sports out there to baseball teams another basketball team. Major college basketball team that calls that area home several other major college basketball teams in the area. He is hockey as the NBA. The spotlight will not be as bright on Cronin. As it was here in Cincinnati. But I wonder how is act will play out there you've got away with some things here because a lot of the players. He recruited were not all Americans. Not certainly not McDonald's all Americans and those players have to be treated. I'm just telling you from experience and seeing other programs like when I wasn't Maryland. They they need to be treated with a little bit different touch than what mic was treating a lot of his players here in Cincinnati. I don't know if he's going to be able to get away with the same demeanor in Los Angeles. But I also know you really. Can't change who you are. And that he probably will be that way. How do you think that will play now that he's dealing with elite athletes who have been coddled most of their lives because they're at the top of their basketball game? Wonders if. Is that some of those players in that the university needs that they want to get the guys who. No shortage of NBA talent. But you know, where we're gotten them in a picture. Like they've gone to the final four. So maybe Conan's kind of demeanor. And I for talent will well him to go after the guys that maybe a better than he had access to in the American conference natty. Pinpoint those guys who are going to play and play. All the things that he's built his career on. But I don't I don't think it's out of the question that current will be able to adapt kind of the new environment. I'm a little bit less. With other teams. Just in terms of. And. Not necessarily gonna have unlimited time to go in and turn it around. Just Williams our guest he is with the Atlantic dot.
Cronin leaves Cincinnati to take UCLA job
"Hey, hey, Jason before we Chadha here. Couple of college notes are of note one. I hope the warriors bring back Chris Mullin in some capacity. He's going to step down as head coach at Saint John's. It sounds like the, you know, spent thirty years at Duke and watts Bobby Hurley to leave ASU to to. And then the one that came down. Just now Mick Cronin is the new head coach UCLA which me Cronin. Leave Cincinnati to take the Bruins job. Rick Barnes opted to stay at Tennessee. Instead of instead of or go to Tennessee instead of instead of take the UCLA job. What do you think? What do you think of those three college Garrett sells weird like if you guys remember Oregon like about eight or nine years ago had an opening head coach and bass warned everybody Tom Izzo. They made every play every coach they approach basically got a race and they settled on like their seven choice. Dana Altman, we'll guess what? Six or seven years later day gets to the final four. So I know Mick Cronin in number one target probably four or five or six, but think about a guide when you making a move on your girlfriend wife at the time before she became your wife option. I don't know that I was, you know, sometimes you got a, you know, just be happy that you get picked down the list for you. Jay were you were you an undrafted free agent. Were you a seventh round pick? I hope I wasn't. I never asked my wife that, but I have joked around with guys who whose wife is hotter than them as my wife is more tractive than me. And I'm like, you're not your life. I choice, but to the overachievers club, Gary the overachievers club going my old lady. Did you did you romance with money? Did you do give Bela's? What what do you think? You you got to wonder over the podcast. I was working at a newspaper in New Jersey living in a studio apartment twenty five thousand dollars. Here. We didn't meeting her a month later. I said boy, I gotta get an upgrade here, and I left it pathetic newspaper industry and just made my rise to where I am now in. Yeah. I couldn't I was it was definitely not

"It's been great for. Thank you so much for that. Dan hurley. Yeah, we did. But but this is just a reminder. We need ref press conferences, we really do need that. Because I think people want ref press conferences to to hold refs accountable for like out of calls, and that guy was definitely on the line. And you didn't call it at the end of the game. And you cost us a win or you know, bullshit like that. That's that's when fans really want the refs to be held accountable. I want ref press conferences after games for this stuff for when like Mick Cronin's out there calling calling as a tough guy that was like that was the part of the krona quote. He said he said his tough-guy buddy threw me out. He was calling the rest tough guys which is hilarious coming from Cronin. And he's like five five talk shit to everybody. I want the rest to do the press conferences. So they can chirp back at these guys. You know, what I made like I wanna ref to have a press conference after that. And be like, sir. Mick Cronin was saying that you're just a tough guy and that you're penalized the kids your thoughts. And then we hear the refs take in. That would be awesome. And he just flips it back the other way and says that also crazy enough as soon as you started talking about like ref press press conferences and making them have their own press conference TV teddy followed the account. Ted Valentine, followed our account, right? He said he said he said he agrees. He's willing to do the first one. But I he's gonna do his own rendition of Hamilton. And then and then he'll get to all the stuff that you wanna ask him. Can we talk about the must bus and just the the wills on the bus aren't moving quickly in his great as they used to because they almost always state Muslim said he didn't panic the whole game. Even though they won this game. But one point on Cody Martin three. And when you think about that. Here's why that's crazy Cody Martin shoots twenty one percent from three he admits. His previous fifteen shots from three. He had missed all of his three point shots in conference play before he hit the shed any head made a three pointer in thirty one days before he made the game winner. But shoot that shot with confidence. And it went X don't end that was going in that one's going in for the must bus, and they they survive still seventeen in one. But you're worried are you worried about muss, and what's going on? We're not recording. Right. Like, we we stopped recording the pod. Yes. We turned it off your all right, Mike. Sure. Okay. I think I'm off the must bus. I think I think the the UCLA like listen this is game. I'm not breaking news here Tate. This is a this is a dirty business wherein. You know, a lot of politicking going on a lot of you know, scratching one guy's backstabbing another guy in the back. You gotta do what you can't get ahead in this business dirty. Gotta have a bad guy. Get stabbed in the back..

"But what makes what makes it especially no early today is that Mick Cronin also got injected and there is an epidemic in the American athletic conference. Krona was ojected in Cincinnati's game on Tuesday. Believe a consult Florida yet first time in four hundred six games. He was tossed. Yeah. His quote was he explained it in his post game press conference. He said it was a shot clock violation. And I said what? I got teed I've tried to get teed. When I when I went to find out why I got a T. I let me get the cadence. Right. He goes I got teed, and I've tried to get teed like you say, and I've tried to get text before. But when I I went to to find out why gotta t- because when other people are cursed in and chasing people around, and you say what and get a t the guy said because I put my hands up. This is very confusing quote, but let's just focus on. He kept calling tease. Yes. What a what a what a great thing that we changed the name of Republicans. Imagine had teed up, and we could just play that, you know, play ratio TI ski rolling through be so good. You know, my favorite thing has said he said what they did. They almost penalize the kids, and they should be suspended. That's what you gotta get flip it on them. They should be suspended. Instead, the league office is monitoring my press conference right now to see if I say anything wrong. That's the problem with our sport. It's not the backdrop ING, it's not the not all this other stuff that goes on with the moral quandaries of college exploitation not the mid Cronin getting tossing this game. So we cannot reach these kids that wrong. That's that's the one thing. That's wrong with the sport. Also, it was Dan her birthday when he got when you get to know that look that day.
