President Donald Trump tells sports commissioners he is hopeful NFL season will open on time

"Will the White House says the president spoke with commissioners of the country's sports leagues in a conference call Saturday and told them he recognizes the good work being done by many teams and players the care for their communities and fans dealing with the new coronavirus she called on them to continue efforts to support their fellow Americans during this current challenge a wide range of sports league officials took part in the call including NFL commissioner Roger Goodell as well as NBA commissioner Adam silver president trump believes the NFL season will start on time September tenth with fans in those seats we have to open our country again we want to be doing this for months and months and months would open our country again this country wasn't meant for this if you were if you were but we have to open our country again they want to get back they got to get back I can't do this this sports were designed for the whole concept of our nation wasn't designed for women have to get back we want to get back soon very soon Adam Schefter on the practicality of that hope Donald Trump had a conference call with major commissioners in multiple sports that started at noon eastern today and in that call president trump told them that he believes the NFL season should start on time in September now again that's great that he thinks that and it's great to be ones that we all want that the truth is is that practical and real can we really make that happen and I don't know that anybody can answer that question we're gonna need it all clear and I don't know whether that's a vaccine or treatment or testing that is done on people before they walk into stadiums but the world as we know it is changing in the world that we know is going to be a very different place and so it's great that president trump watch football to resume in September we don't but we just don't know how practical in real that is at this point time and probably will not for quite some time trump's view of the NFL came during the call including executives from a host of sports leagues as I mentioned NFL NBA Major League Baseball the PGA tour NASCAR among them it was one league executive that apparently was not on the call which is puzzling to Taylor Twellman how do you have the NBA WNBA Major League Baseball NFL NHL PGA UFC WWE NASCAR Major League Soccer and you don't have mark Emmert the NCAA on thank you this is what this is why it's so difficult for me to be optimistic for longer than five minutes because the moment I use my brain and start thinking about who's doing the advice who's giving me advice who's talking what's real news what's fake news and whatnot your love said okay well then what's the truth it's going to come out ten hours later or the next day twenty hours it's just a that's why I'm struggling with it all yeah as far as trump's optimism or hope that games in the NFL and beyond will be played sometime soon Myron Medcalf on game day does not see the same picture one I'm Alex everyone it seems wants to be helpful at this juncture in a bigger an ideal world football would start on time college football football you'll be able to come back but I don't see the path to that method that to me is the thing that everyone's wrestling with theirs I think you have a lot of power brokers who feel like they have the power to to move forward but until we get the green light to put people in stadiums and to get things back rolling again I'm not sure how it happened and it just feels like we're on two different paths where you got out of the hopeful leaders who want to get things going again but the reality of feels like with everything we've seen just in the last month it's it's hard for me to look for to think that everything will be normal this fall all of these ideas are the kind of a did you come up with when you want to get around the current circumstance but I just don't know how realistic any of that is you know how do you get everybody in one place and minimize risk I mean that to me is the thing what do you deal with a hundred people or seventy thousand can you tell them that they're safe you know I don't know how anybody gets to that point in general with the snow out of the country but I do think the NBA and NFL all these leagues considering the money on the line will exhaust every opportunity every option before they say we can't go forward but it just it just doesn't feel like anything is realistic about NFL and college football starting on time at this point Adam Schefter also reporting high level officials from multiple teams are preparing for a virtual draft from their homes a final decision is pending on teams holding the draft at team facilities according to league sources the draft will be held again on time April twenty third it starts with the biggest event of the leaves off field calendar originally scheduled for a lavish affair Las Vegas Roger Goodell said the league wide memo on March twenty six that was unanimous unequivocal the draft would go on as scheduled despite the corona virus pandemic and that has disrupted most of this nation shifter on how this pandemic the will impact the league's bottom line nobody knows exactly how to handle the and so I don't think the owners are any different and the owners now have to be going through their minds are wondering if their business model ever hold up again does it all look this year one of the few to ratifications okay first and foremost you want to make sure that our country safe of course that that is a priority before talking just from a business football perspective and with the owners of thinking there then I think they got to be concerned tremendously concerned we don't know that there's going to be football we hope there is we don't know that we don't know what form that football will take we hope it's as it was hard to imagine that's the case so we would sit back and wait for answers we wait for more widespread testing for the development of a vaccine for something that enables our world to get back on track it's derailed medically it's derailed financially it's derailed economically it's Terrell in so many ways the world has been turned upside down yeah one of the key factors here is the fact that if one state doesn't allow a team of representatives to go to their facility then the leave will not allow any any of the other teams that have their draft at their facility so we'll see how it plays out again April twenty third the draft will be on time that's Thursday night and it will go through Saturday the twenty

Is Duke Done? A Season of NCAA Basketball Surprises

Is Duke Done? A Season of NCAA Basketball Surprises

"Myron. I think the last time we spoke. I was at Cameron Indoor Stadium asking You what you thought about Zion Williamson. That was the last time and now Zion's gone and things haven't been as good for college basketball since he left. Myron Medcalf is a senior college basketball reporter for ESPN. Men's college basketball has been having a pretty weird season. Can you explain to us sort of the state of things and why some of the usually omnipresent contenders your dukes your? Unc's Kentucky aren't even in the top five while it's a meeting in a year like this anybody who tells you that they know exactly what's going to happen in March. They're lying because there was no one no expert. That understands kind of what's happened so far. It's just been a wild year but I think you can look at some of the things that transpired Really at the start of the season. I think the James Wiseman suspension by the answer. Aa For twelve games after being ruled ineligible. You have a Memphis team that I think had a chance to be much better if he sticks around. Lamelo ball who if he follows the traditional track and goes to a UCLA USC that changes the spotlight on those programs as well But instead you have a lot of the blue blood teams that don't have the lottery level talent that they had a year ago. Duke is still a top ten level team but they don't have anyone close To a Zaylon you'd have a team like Gonzaga that had to lottery picks last year. They got some good players. Nothing like that so the the powerhouse teams are just really good team which has closed the gap so now a San Diego State with the Malachi Flint and against double team Malachi for three huge three by malachite lend. That's a really good team. Competing for number one see the Dayton with an ob top suddenly was one of the best teams in America. And I think it's because you just don't have the same concentration of talent we're accustomed to seeing with your Kentucky's in Dukes. Then you'RE K. Use Marin what is it like covering a season like this where there are really clear favorites and no one seems to have any idea. What's going on this year? You just don't really know who to chase like. You don't know who to say okay. That's the team to watch. Because they're really good. It just feels like a pretty fragile college basketball scene which is great for the tournament for everything. We didn't have in college basketball this year in terms of no established kind of powerhouse team. I think we're going to see the benefits of it. Come into double A. Tournament. Time when we could have one of the craziest craziest. March madness is we've ever had so. Let's talk about Duke. Quit even when dukes not great? We're still going to talk about Dick. Because it's really interesting. Myron how much struggled on Saturday they lost to Virginia Virginia wins. That look the three point line. Just couldn't connect before that game. They were ranked seventh. But I imagine they could go down even further now right. Yeah I mean this is a team that I think will will fall in the rankings. Duke has run into some teams who put on their Superman capes in the last couple of games. And that's change things you have. Nc State which made sixty one percent of its threes and that loss A week ago wake forest mixed fifty four percent of its threes. These things those teams had done before they phase Duke and Virginia really as just a team on the rise So I think duke got caught in kind of a weird gauntlet there but trae Jones has been sort of their closer whereas a year ago you could go to RJ bear. You could go to Cam Reddish you could go on. And now they're a bit more one dimensional They're much closer to what you see. Maybe in a typical season where they're right there with Louisville and Florida state and Virginia and the other teams at the top of the ACC. But they don't have a guy who's GonNa carry them to the top of the League and just help them separate. That's just not enough talent in college basketball for really any team to do that. But especially in the league like the Agency. So you're in Kansas right now in Kansas. The number one team. You were there to watch them. Play Kansas State and it was a right because these two teams Fighting literally fighting back in January Shit and now the benches inc just unnecessary. That's not good. This is Paul. This is bad this is but on Saturday night myron. They shook hands before the tip off in. Kansas came away with the victory. What did you make of the number team in their performance? Well I I'm just glad nobody fought again because that that would have been bad Glad to have that moment before the game I will say. I've never been to a regular basketball game outside of the NCAA tournament that had as much security as that game. Had I mean they were everywhere about? I'm glad there was an incident. I I think Kansas is sort of the perfect team in a year like this. Do they have a lottery pick? No but they've got this really balanced group of guys who are pretty good offensively. They've been pretty efficient team and they got two guys who win they're together. They're hard to stop. It's Dotson In Gaza Buki who when they're on the floor together. Kansas made about sixty percent of his shots inside the art. Their opponents have made about forty one percent of their shots inside the three point line. That's the story right there when those two guys are together. Kansas is certainly the best team in America. But you also look at them and go. Are they one bad night from Abu? Koa from struggling. He was hurt part of the game on Saturday against the bad Kansas state team boss feeds it in bounced past as a group. Six to shoot you back down spits travels this is the shot ultimately but he rolled his ankle. Oh this is good has approved. He is clutching his right foot so Kansas is good. But like a lot of teams there. One bad moment badge stretch away from being right there with everybody else. Well now. It seems like Kansas is going to run away with the big twelve after Baylor who was ranked number two going into the weekend got upset by. Tcu How bad was this for Baylor? It's always interesting right. Like Baylor won every game but one for like two months straight and now all of a sudden last week I think a lot of people are panicking and that happens to a team. Like Baylor which doesn't have the brand recognition of Duke or Kentucky or a Kansas. So in hard times. I think we may be overemphasized Some of their struggles. I think you obviously don't want to continue losing and losing to a team like Tcu is not good For them but this is a team that again played a tissue team that did things that they haven't done in the past made forty five percent of the threes on Saturday against Baylor. They made thirty three percent of their shots from three point. Line before that so that can be more of an anomaly. I think Baylor overall though is one of the best defensive teams in America made the best defensive team not named Kansas. So that's GONNA keep them in every game that they play well one team. That's right up there with Kansas and Baylor is Gonzaga perennial contenders They did lose to. Byu about a week ago but they're still considered favorites to win the WCTC. How good is this Gonzaga team? I think they're really really good me now like I think they're amazing. I just think this is a year where because everyone has been sort of even you get one loss and all of a sudden. Gonzaga gets the whole. You haven't played anybody. And why are you losing you know in the West Coast Conference and I think that's unfair? Byu was a really good team like Byu's go into selection Sunday with maybe a five or six seed. Maybe even better so. There's nothing wrong with losing a road game in that environment to a good team. They have the number one offense in America a flea Petra. Sav is one of the best young players Indian tire country. We would know what mark few the head coach can do. And they've got two losses all year. I think that is one of the best teams in America and I think will prove it wants double a. Tournament starts so most of the rankings have some combination of Kansas Baylor in Gonzaga in the top. Three we'll see how this weekend changes that but after that myron gets pretty interesting. I'm you've got Dayton San Diego state. Did you see that coming up before the season began out like I wish I could lie and say I did? I wish I could be that dude. It was like yeah. I called San Diego State back in October in Dayton. But I didn't I mean like ob top and a Dayton is suddenly this lottery pig. And I don't think anybody saw that Common Dayton on Friday against Davidson Mia. Think about this number. They may ninety six percent of their shots inside the three point. Line Ninety six percent like I don't care if you're playing a high school junior Varsity Team. That's really difficult to do in Dayton. Did that and not only did they do it. They've been doing it Throughout the season just really inefficient offensive team in San Diego State. A team that lost its first game about a week and a half ago. The they've been role as well in their line of people who will say San Diego State doesn't play the competition that the other top teams have faced in college basketball. That's not true. They beat the. Byu Team that just beacons Aga- they beat Creighton. Which I think is the surprise of college basketball naked win at all by thirty one points and they beat Iowa another solid team another Aa tournament team by ten points so the best teams that were thrown at San Diego State. They won those games now. They did lose the UNLV Week ago but beyond that there have been a really really good team and I think in a year like this again. You're not going to run into a team with two lottery. Picks it feels like they can make Iran as well both San Diego state ending

Cowboys to move on without Jason Garrett

"Jason Garrett's time up as coach of the Dallas Cowboys Edward a reporting Jerry Stephen Jones have decided coach will not be part of the organization moving forward on Friday and paid Simmons on why this process lasted so long after the season to other Jerry and Stephen Jones have moved slowly out of respect for Jason Garrett you know they have a long history with him as a backup quarterback you to this is that coach a head coach's father was in the organization when Jerry bapa team as a scout and they finally concluded that phase of this process and that's going to end with Jason Garrett not being a part of the organization beyond his expiring contract and when exactly they make that announcement I thought sure what I've been told soon and that the next phase will have them moving into the process of interviewing candidates in the battle begin quickly after phase one is totally finished off yes was contract set to expire January fourteenth status with the team at issue since last February the cowboys didn't give a contract extension they missed the playoffs in twenty nineteen finish eight neighbor the four time in his tenure as coach Keyshawn Johnson on the job candidates and Jerry Jones himself he was on sports and we stand ready to make a decision on it there was the eight their long term in the obvious would clearly felt that their work you say while they waited till Thursday well the food that just won't really it just is so you kind of say okay take a deep breath we get back to the facilities we talk about a little bit we think about we pondered overnight we need or Thursday we meet on Tuesday we meet on Wednesday we have a conversation and we finally so you know women the best thing for us to do if not give the public what they looking for what they looking for me to do is be extremely mad and walk out of there on Sunday night if fire you on the tarmac so instead of doing that this call wait a couple days are you playing for the cowboys you're familiar with Jerry Jones and and and his thinking all what happens next now in this search for the next cowboys head coach I think a guy like Mike Zimmer Minnesota Vikings head coach could potentially be a candidate you say how could that be well I I II coach there in the deepest corner along try defensive coordinator for Jerry Jones is the bill Parcells fact either stay here they know what they're getting in that particular coach but also there's a young officer coordinator in cabin step band he this sitting there in Minnesota the Minnesota Vikings don't want to part ways with him they don't want him all of a sudden start to get interviews and become a category another team so I would be surprised if somehow might dimmer wind up being the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys in the cabinet she takes over as the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings so a lot of story lines this call come about here over the next with date but I think this time around you will get the head coaching job right where the coach may be season one more before we go do you think that at this point Jerry Jones is ready to surrender more control to a head coach now then he has been willing to in the past as bill Parcells left and and I want to turn this on your stamina I am right now status is not a defense Jerry Jones was some what he is and even as well as we clay as well as Jerry junior what is your you Jones gone wrong with that organization other than the head coaching hire that's a very good question that's very good everybody everybody everybody said here you're you're here the one on that team thank you for calling the latter team for the National Football League I would I would argue and say that their top five channels it is four tally dole is a National Football League the problem is that head coach because you're you're not holding the plate yeah well that gives the player is a free pass for having innate need season the talent on the field didn't win enough games he and Garrett will finish as the second longest tenured and second most winningest coach in team history Tom Landry a record of eighty five and sixty seven the wonders to playoff games unable to get past the divisional round Mike wells Myron Medcalf on Freddie Fitzsimmons the Dallas Cowboys there you know they draw attention but the the the days of being America's team and wanted to be part of what is age and it's not the same anymore it is not the same strictly because of what you have to deal with away from just coaching of football team is not simply you know put together a strong staff the coaster brakes of Amari Cooper Ezekiel Elliott and dak Prescott it's also having the answer constant questions from your boss the owner Jerry Jones deck could become a headache when you're you can't simply just focus on the task of putting your team in the proper position the try to have success there's a side show that comes with it and some people are built or not built to be able to deal with that so you got to find the right coach who is not only a great Exynos guy but somebody who's mentally strong enough to handle the constant you know looking over the shoulders and the pestering of your boss meddling in the inside of things wonder why things are not going well or to give us suggestions on what you should be doing that's not something easy that everybody can handle that type of situation well it and not everybody wants it and that's why I think a lot of these cultures your Matt rules related rallies urban Meyer's why except that to me if you're not going to modernize the structure of your organization so that your owner can do what every other owner does and take a backseat and not be this forward facing figure who's hosting its own press conferences after the game sometimes undermining the head coach then then how can you expect to attract a great candidate bomb out rule no one eight I'm leaving Baylor I got a chance to build something there if I'm leak in Raleigh I'm in Oklahoma and every year I get a chance to go to the college football playoff leave in Oklahoma where I can coach for another decade at least about continue to succeed ever murmur Meyer I'm not leaving LA or on the TV analyst making good money watching a lot of football injuries bouncing around the country see a lot of teams to go to Dallas where I've got a deal with Jerry that's why I think it's going to be difficult if Jerry Jones wants to continue to be Jerry Jones I don't think Mike he's going to end up with any of the top candidates identifying potential replacements Bobby carpenter and fox college football reporter Bruce Feldman gas on Freddie impede Simmons Stephen Jones Jerry Jones offered that coaching job urban Meyer she would say I think that's a hard job to say no urban probably wouldn't be needing to be for another year is that all you but who knows enough the big job at the glamorous job and remember the nose you know damn owns his courage and damn ongoing expound acted it all back thank god yeah I was supposed to do the oil itself journal part of mine and to buy that it was offered so you're going to want to meet your need to guide it was a proven track record we've done it before who's been in the playoffs the only guy that I look at the newest hires cycle that's really available is Mike McCarthy and it's free thank god I'm not that I'm not the biggest Mike McCarthy stand the world but he's the only guy that it holds no one Barty and that is the only thing that Jerry Jones once he is getting older is that you know you if you spend more time on this earth that he's going to spend has the last was starving if you get that oracle Marty troche with them of the order would love to put it in there Mike you've done that you chose to leave and you've been in the playoffs he's done a good job that would be my selection I don't know if they don't know what it does do checks all

Ryan Day: A Courageous Effort to Turn Tragedy into Triumph

"With us if you could ask one question to one coach at any media days be an SEC or any other what what with that question be what's on your mind this week well there's a lot of stuff that I'd like to ask basically you know how the sausage is made with their program but I think they're probably not will it holds the secret I would probably go towards probably Ryan day at at Ohio state that is because of the situation he's stepping into writing most people would is probably say in unison that all outside the top three to five job to get there but a coach yeah I know you're a head coach for three games last year during urban Meyer suspension at the beginning of the year but really they normally knows what to expect in this program so I I would say that would probably be the one coach I would love to talk to you over the next couple weeks try to get a figure out what that program is gonna look like now the urban Meyer's no longer there Greg you have to who comes in as the heroes a freshman great season last year fall short short of when the title because it's Alabama because Trevor Brian it trouble Lawrence is the one everyone's talking about is to a face in pressure in year three to deliver another title considering the scrutiny on him no pressure no but I feel like there it into is pretty laid back I mean this whole why and you know very laid back not not too not too worried about what saying that are associated with the program but I I get the sense isn't is going within this fall in this this spring and and really at times over the course of last fall last fall everyone's not Grady was there ever was kind of praising him and I think he enjoyed that but also wasn't really sure how to make it it is always good kinda like under the radar lifestyle and then he became such a huge star in a phenomenon over the course of the poor the four month season that he was the talk of college football and then sure enough the Heisman Trophy gets ripped away from him in the final week of the season they lose the national championship by four touchdown the few weeks later so I've actually my time with him this spring he's a different guy I mean he's he's he's I wouldn't say use super focused because it's not time yet to be super focused when you're visiting with someone in April but I think it's a sense that he was not happy about how he played down the stretch and how the knock on him right now is a well how did you do against top tier competition he didn't play well against Clemson in play well it's your day didn't play that great against that what you eat include that great get the state and that's kind of been the knock on him going into this fall now right or wrong the guys it credible plan about each what should a won the Heisman last year but he has a lot to prove it I think he's looking forward to having up to you to do that magic Myron Medcalf here Sunday morning on ESPN radio ESPN app Greg McElroy's ESPN college football analyst joining us here the shell pens or performance line as we discuss the conference media days which get underway tomorrow SEC media days course the headlining act all week we we've talked a little bit about the the inevitability of certain sports specifically the NBA up until this year seem to kind of know how it's going to end college football is is is kind of trending that way in a big way last year I felt inevitable Clemson in Alabama how would you compare the inevitability of last year verses this year with college football well it is it like that kind of in every sport the patriots are inevitable the NFL but I feel like there are dynasties in dynasties can work in your favor as a sport in last year I'm not sure anyone would have anticipated that beat down that was that clamp Clinton put on Alabama so I mean it's there's still certain levels of unpredictability but I'm with you back I I'm I'm a little concerned about it because if we're really trying to grow the sport and we want the sports you never feel stagnant then you keep getting the same four teams in the playoffs we keep getting the same championship contenders on an annual basis because those programs recruited such a high level and have done it enter tracking top your quarterback and of coaches that have won championships in the past but it could I think in a year or two if we don't have some chaos it could get real stagnant for people that are casual observers like me I'm watching I don't get mad I know you're going to watch it no matter what I know that people that called the sport thank cover the sport well we're gonna love it and the people in the southeastern part of United States which were football bread and butter they're going to watch it but what about the fan on the west coast it's kinda casually into a really not that much but I think it I think they definitely need to find some teams whether it be in Oregon or at maybe have a team out of the big ten like Nebraska but maybe it is have some new blood that teams that have maybe been a little average by their standards the last handful of years and now all of a sudden they can find their way back into it so there there's optimism about because there's a lot of really good programs that have been doing a great job just know what you're doing as good a job as Clinton Alabama so I do think that the lack of predictability benefit the sport but I also I think the purest in me still want to see the two best teams five or that's got H. last year yeah I'm not sure the the stagnant see if that's a word can be prevented without expanding the plow but we won't go into that we only got a couple minutes left here with Greg but getting getting to that it Bama Clemson Georgia maybe you probably have to throw in Oklahoma Ohio state maybe a Michigan it any other teams out there that you think have

"Simons Myron medcalf and Freddie Coleman that guy. That is not worried about week to week three a week for a week five come on. Fan jets fan. I'm not even looking at this sixteen game schedule. I just want to see what's going to happen week one. You got the patriots. They're going to Steelers all only wanted to see how many prime time games. The Browns were going to get. And I knew they were going to get a good amount. Based on what happened in the off season. With Baker Mayfield. Coming back got a new coach you got Oto Beckham junior. I'm not surprised we're seeing a lot more in the jump because the Browns have being primetime four times this year at least four times if they keep getting better and better they're going to flex some Sunday night football games. So I knew that was going to happen. I I understand it from the NFL. And here's another reason why minor league will never ever succeed in NFL off season. Because of Vince like this when you have people so excited about a schedule in which games are not going to be played until September. That's why we had the af. And another death note that Lee that's why the XFL netra should be worried about it. Because the NFL has such a stranglehold on the American public. Even when they're not playing football, even though. Football going on. If it's not the NFL if it's not caused football. If it's not high school football people have time and time again, they don't give a bleep. They don't give a you know, what about what your league what you'll league you think league is going to do. So when you have people like mine Metcalf following like the old paint Floyd video, we know need. No, except we need. No, a f- because the NFL does they got guys like that. Right. Where they want them because it's like tonight where everybody is so excited about the schedule. Lease for the fall in the NFL. I will take that. And I will accept that. Now, the minor league only works with NFL participation because the counter to that is if you have players who are fighting for spots in the NFL, the NFL could promote that and make that interesting if they were on board. No, the af or the XFL tries to be a minor league that won't work unless you get NFL participation for the Browns primetime. Mm games. Two of them. September sixteenth against the jets and Tober seventh against the Niners will be on Monday night football. The Monday night football slate. Also includes nine division rivalry games. Total I is double header September. Ninth. Texans and saints seven o'clock eastern. That'll be followed by the Broncos and raiders at ten fifteen eastern time straight talk wireless, nationwide coverage on America's largest and most dependable four G L T networks, the names that may be on the Laker shortlist. What can we read into it? And what should we not be reading into it? That's next. Sportscenter allnight. It's ESPN radio. ESPN.

"myron medcalf" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP

"Radio presented by Uber with Myron medcalf and Bobby V Paul finebaum here as we are awaiting more conversations. We have already talked to the committee chairman we've gone through the field the top seeds and Myron as we sit here waiting to get to our next guest a fairly uneventful selection Sunday, I would say compared to years past. Yeah. I mean, there wasn't the drama. You. Is usually something especially in the top three seed lines for sea lions that makes you go man that doesn't it doesn't make any sense. I mean, there are Michigan state fans. Who are I guess they thought that they might be in a position to get a top seed. But for the most part, I it's it's a reasonable bracket. And I honestly can't remember Paul the last time I said that about bracket, can you? Bop. No. But I think you answered your own question earlier. I think it's been a real it was a very soft bubble this year. I mean, that's the thing. We said we have had some years where you said, I don't know how I'm to cut it down to a sixty eight this year. Looking around. Well, maybe I don't know maybe them. So it's hard to get that upset, but I think they got it about as right as possible. And you know, there's always going to be a couple of eyebrow razors. Saint John's certainly comes to mind is one we've talked about them a lot so far. But I thought they did a pretty good job with it. And nobody's talking about NC states gripe. I mean, usually there is a social media explosion. If there's a real snob. I don't know if anyone's even acknowledged whatever NC state is talking about with what they feel as a snub. Well, I think that resonates with fans think fans bothered when they think you're rewarded for playing cupcakes city is because we we focused so much on the number one seed, but if history is any indicator the number one sees really wins. Yeah. Yeah. The number. It's like the pole position in racing. But I feel like in a year resign Williams. Paul. I feel like the one the number one overall seed is going to be the thing that you've got to find a well, there was another guarantee a few months ago to difference board Myron. That is very true. So anything can happen. But I feel like Duke playing their best. That's the target and everybody else. I always call it the ten thousand tournament they played this tournament ten thousand times who do you think would win it more than any do could win. It feels like when Anthony Davis Kentucky in two thousand twelve tournament. I felt like no one's going to be able to overcome the advantage. They have with him on the floor. I feel the same way about Duke was physically dominate. There is a little bit of controversy across the building other than Jay Bilas, his another Jay Jay Williams had this to say about zag being number one seed. I don't think it impacted my thinking.

"What have you or now we're talking about professional sports? Sometimes it's hard to stay on that plan because of things that happened in the moment sometimes we can overreact to something. That's good. And overreact is something that's bad. And that's where the Lakers will soon. Find themselves as relates to this injured with LeBron because we would say they're ahead of schedule in terms of what they're trying to do with his organization going forward their own pace right now to win forty eight games. They would be the fourth seat in the west of the playoffs. Started today which most people say is a head of schedule. Some Laker fans would be like nods. Exactly where I knew it was going to be because we the Lakers on the we got LeBron. We're going to challenge the words for the championship. That's not the norm. That's the minority not the majority. So their head of schedule, and you do still have the long term goal, which is to get a championship. Can you do it? If you go all. Out this year bring back LeBron too early trying to pursue a higher seat in the playoffs or make sure he's a hundred percent healthy. Even in the cost, you twenty games if he has to sit out for twenty games, and you end up getting just maybe a seventh or eighth seed instead of a third or fourth. See is it worth it going into the summer to try to get a big time free agent and try to chase that champion but the next two or three years? Yes. And I think how how you laid that out. That's exactly how Magic Johnson is thinking Magic Johnson gets an a plus for the season already because he got LeBron right? Any doubts? We had about magic in terms of his ability to navigate free agency. He arranged any doubts when he got LeBron James. So the Lakers have already one locking up the best player of all time for four plus year for four years. So you definitely have to be cautious about making sure he's healthy. Even if that costs you this season because you're trying to track Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis. You're trying to get a big name star who outlasts LeBron. Yes. Well as much as. We're all talking like, okay. We got to get somebody to LeBron for the next four. No, you're trying to lock of somebody who will be here. When the Brian has gone. So you have to make sure that he's in shape and imposition to prove to that young town. Hey, look, we're going to be competitive for the next four years. And then it's your team. You don't want. Lebron to do something that hurts him now or becomes a lingering injury throughout his time in LA right because getting to the playoffs this year and getting a decent seed that's a goal, but that small goals the Lakers had much bigger dreams, and that is competing for championship over the course of the next maybe three or four years in order to do that you're going to have to have a very healthy. Lebron James where you're not worried about him reentering something and becoming like Chris Paul situation that they've had with rocket since he's been there, even when he was with the clippers. You don't want that? So you want to be more cautious than just trying to get him back onto the court to come here on the Steve Naismith show hoping to hear from Cal Kuzina after the Lakers big win. They're still up in Oakland. Let's be calling in here momentarily that's next along..

"You gotta do or die game between the titans and the colts the Steelers need to beat Cincinnati. But also have the Browns beat the ravens in order for for Pittsburgh to go. The eagles need help. Do there's a lot going on in the NFL this weekend. A ton man. And you know, who would think the Cleveland Browns will have this much power? Like who who could have thought you? They're going to be the Steelers and you look back at that tie in the first game of the year. And you gotta say that ruined our chance to get into the playoffs or you're going to be the ravens. And that's either your key to get in. Or the way you got out. I mean to me the Baltimore Ravens against the Cleveland. Cleveland Browns is going to be the biggest game for me. Because I think the ravens are so dangerous man forget what you think about Lamar Jackson and whether or not he's the quarterback of the next ten years or the next five years. I don't care about any of that. Here's what I knew. Here's what I know. John Haubert had a chance to save his job. He had to save his job in the second half of this season. That's what it appeared the situation. He was in instead of going with the guy who's won him a Super Bowl Joe flacco, he went with a young man who a lot of people thought what even a quarterback Michael leaves? He was going to be a wide receiver at the NFL combat. Remember that remember that he wasn't going to be a guy who could play in this league? And here he is one overtime loss. Get the Kansas City Chiefs on the road from being undefeated in his time as a starting quarterback with the ravens. This is a guy who has changed the culture of that team over the last seven games the defense appreciates him because that running game increases the time of possession for the ravens gives them more time to rest. Everybody loves what Lamar Jackson is doing. And because he's so Atlantic. He's hard to stop. It's hard to gain plan for a guy like Lamar Jackson. You look at the team that they have defeated over the last six or seven weeks. They are as dangerous to me as anybody not named the Kansas City Chiefs or the New Orleans Saints. I would not want to face his Baltimore Ravens team if they get in because they have as much momentum as any team in the league going forward. I think too many times in the past when it comes to certain quarterbacks coaches have looked at the player and got caught up on what they can't do as opposed to what they can do and trying to find a way to make them successful for their respective teams. I'm glad that John Harbaugh and the offense of coaches there in Baltimore have not taken that are. Approach in look at Lamar Jackson. Look we have a dynamic player. Let's make a system that Nabil's him to be as dynamic as possible because it gives us the best chance to win as presently constructed. And as you said what he has done on the field as a starter since taken over. Joe flacco has invigorated the entire team including the defense because now they feel as if they have a chance to win games. Even if they get into the playoffs. Let me ask you about this thing if the Steelers don't make it if the eagles don't make pretty good chance of both of them won't make it really which one's more disappointing from an organizational standpoint, the defending champions not getting back there or team that was seven two and one to start the season. You know, I think it's the Steelers because they start at seven to and what we what we knew about the eagles is that they had a guy who was Super Bowl MVP. And I'm thinking falls has been great deserves more credit for what he's done for this organization. But we also knew that Carson Wentz. We didn't know what to expect to him come and four and they had a situation where falls is the guy in the Super Bowl and they're trying to work Carson Wentz back into the mix. I think the Steelers in the way they started and they just didn't start at seven to one..

"Like so many players have started on the league unable to hit shots from the perimeter. And over time they progressed into guys who were legit threats from beyond the arc. You'll get a guy like Boris Diaw from back in the day came into the league making twenty five twenty six percent of his three pointers. At his peak. He was a forty one percent three point shooter. I mean, that's capable you. It's possible to get better. But if you don't take them you'll never know because he's got to get over. If there's a feeder he's got to get over that. Because the modern point guard the modern guard period in the NBA the modern player, forget even guards centers are shooting threes. Joel Embiid assume threes people are getting on the Andre eight and because he's not taking threes. Like, this is a league where you have to be able to stress the floor. Ben Simmons can't do it. So how do you invest in him long term? I feel like this off season. And I don't know who the guy is. But they've got to find someone who can work with him and who can help him change his game to make it a more modern game and allow him to stress the floor. So if he doesn't have it and you're looking at the Sixers trying to go deep into the playoffs under what scenario can you see them getting past the Celtics and going to the NBA finals or even the raptors for them for that point. I don't want to just forget about the raptors here because what Hawaii Leonard and Kyle Lowry and those guys doing up there in Toronto right now. Should not be overlooked. But we're just talking about the match up. We saw yesterday and the fact that they played each other in the playoffs last season. But how can you see them in any scenario even with Jimmy Butler in the building getting past the Celtics if they can't have their starting point guard shoot jumpers? I mean there were close last night. I mean, they played them top. I think it'll be a tough one game though like they should've wondering, but we talked about a seven game series. Where would you know when when it gets to making adjustments and you play that same team every game for a stretch your witnesses become overblown in a playoff situation where they not necessarily case in the regular season. Yeah. I'm never picking them. I wouldn't pick them against the Celtics. No way. Because I do think it would hurt them long term. But they they're right there with the team like the Celtics the rafters to me with Leonard. That teams obviously, really good. I think you need Ben Simmons to develop this now, it's not gonna happen overnight. But imagine if he does and you got Jimmy Butler, an MB imagine how it changes that team. Like now, the fact that teams are not even playing him on the perimeter. Yeah. That to me hurts everybody on the floor because it adjusts what they can do defensively to the other four guys and how much pressure they can put on them. We had Joel Embiid Michalis shooting threes last night. And then some shoes four-game he averaged it doesn't make sense game. Ben Simmons doesn't have any. It does not make any sense not wins him as I don't know who he's talking to. I don't know who was in his ear. But somebody needs to tell them, look, do you are very very very good. But if you want a fifteen year career, and you want to just be like somebody who's older guys in the league who've adjusted their games who've matured in different areas e need to start shooting. I will say this. The inability of the Sixers to finish up that game did give us a thrilling overtime. And we got to see one of my favorite players in the league..

"I'll tell you. Why he won't he saw how everyone treated Marquel foles? And if he's not in a position where he can make some of them. I'm not saying this shot is gonna look as bad as Marquel shot was looking there for a minute with that hitch in it. But if he's hitting the side of the backboard or shooting airballs, he's gonna get roasted absolutely roasted in Philadelphia and on social media. He's going to get roasted. And that's why I believe he's not doing it. Because I don't know how anybody could play basketball that long and not be able to have the ability to shoot a free throw. And now in two thousand eighteen at least step out a few more feet and attempt to three point shot with having a opportunities hitting twenty five to thirty percent of. I don't know how you can play basketball that long and not have that ability. But seemingly that's the case we've been Simmons. And he doesn't wanna get embarrassed. He doesn't want anyone talking trash about him and his jump shot. If he's at the throne of airballs from twenty three feet, he doesn't want that. And as a result that fear. I believe is preventing him from taking those shots in a game. You mean to tell? Tell me he doesn't shoot any threes in practice. Not one. Exactly. I mean, the trainers in the ballboy shoot threes in practice. So you tell me Ben Simmons as shooting threes and practice of Corsey is, but he's not confident of Myron to bring it out there in a game in front of all those people because he's afraid he will make it. And when you have that fear. You ain't never gonna make it consistently. Never I'm with you. I mean, the fear clearly is a part of it. But there's also an element where the organization is a part of this too. I mean, if they wanna Ben Simmons to shoot threes, they can encourage that that clearly is not happening. I just don't understand how a guy that young isn't at least triumph three points shooting is a skill. And we know that because of all the guys who've added it to their games over time..

"Michael eaves at Metcalf by ESPN Myron it was Christmas day. We had five games on the slate. We get what we wanted terms of intrigue and personal standout performances and also some fantastic finishes. What game left you fill in like Santa Claus really drops them for you. Sixers and Celtics for me going over time. You have two teams that you don't have feels like they could be the class of the Eastern Conference for the next four or five seasons. If everyone stays together, I mean to me that felt like a playoff game that felt like a game where you had two teams that were planned for something more than just one game in the regular season on Christmas day. I hope we see this become sort of derive Elry in the Eastern Conference. Ben Simmons was the guy focused on everyone focused on because you know, you look at them you go that guy is an amazing player. A unique talent the I'm not sure I've seen the more versatile players since maybe what Lamar Odom early in his career was kind of like that. They've been other guys who've painting Hardaway, but he's unique especially in this era. But Michael leaves if he can't shoot how do you build a team around him with that? I know, and that's the disappointing aspect of it. Because the kids got so much game his basketball IQ through the charts. He's he's playing chess out there. Most plan checkers. He sees things before they happen. But opposing defenses are okay. If that's what you're gonna do we go lay off, and we're going to force you to shoot jump shot at especially at a time where you don't want to shoot it. And that was late in the game. Because the Sixers should've won the game the situation won the game in regulation. It should have never gone to overtime. The Sixers had the Celtics right where they want them. And they couldn't score late. And as a result, you get to overtime and untucked shirt, kyri Irving goes off those dagger back toback threes. He ends up dropping forty four win. But you know, the thing about that match up my because they're both the rosters are both young and dynamic and yet you could see these guys going to hit to half for the next five years in the eastern calms like we had like in the early eighties. When you had the Celtics and the Sixers going head to head who's gonna come out of the Eastern Conference to go out west and play the Lakers typically, you can have that with these two teams. But the Sixers are behind the Celtics a little bit in terms of overall Rops. Roster depth. And if Ben Simmons can't get that jumper situated, or if it's not even a threat. How can you contend for a championship? When one your best players has such a huge efficiency. And that's a serious question to all the points. You just brought up because it's almost like he was built for the two thousand right? Like if this were like two thousand and four we'd be looking at Ben Simmons and saying he's perfect big versatile. God like that perfect for an era where you didn't have six foot eleven seven for guys hitting shots. I mean brook Lopez Robin Lopez those guys are shooting threes. You have guys at every position who are capable of shooting threes. He's not even attempt to them. So how can you rely on a guy cat scratch the floor? When that's the entire point in the NBA. The entire point of the NBA is to have as many guys as possible who can stress the floor score from the perimeter. I mean, that's what you want. If you're an NBA GM Rena right now, that's what you're trying to build. I mean when we evaluate college players in European players. Especially big man, you go Kenney shoot from the perimeter or not. That's the key in today's NBA. And Ben Simmons isn't doing. Here's my problem. I yeah. Would you want to see him go out there and try to take two three threes again? Even if he misses them when you at least want to see him try to work on it to me rating disappointed. He's not doing.

We get what we wanted terms of intrigue and personal standout performances and also some fantastic finishes. What game left you fill in like Santa Claus really drops them for you. Sixers and Celtics for me going over time. You have two teams that you don't have feels like they could be the class of the Eastern Conference for the next four or five seasons. If everyone stays together, I mean to me that felt like a playoff game that felt like a game where you had two teams that were planned for something more than just one game in the regular season on Christmas day.

After football player's death, University of Maryland places head football coach on leave

"But this summer. Has not been easy at Maryland following the death of offensive. Lineman Jordan McNair, there's been a report of. Toxic culture in the football program turps coach DJ, Durkin, placed on administrative leave he among others placed on leave over, the weekend Dirk and worked for will must champ for four years at Florida but must. Champ this weekend instead went after players and ex staffers. Who helped contribute to Painting the picture for the story there's no credibility in anonymous sources You know that former? Staffer had any guts why didn't he put his name on that I think, that's gutless in any business, in any company in any football team especially right here. In August you can find a disgruntled player is probably not playing so I think, it's a lack of journalistic integrity. To print things with anonymous sources But I know DJ Durkan personally, and I know what kind, of man he is I know what kind of person. Is I talked to him this morning and I don't think it's right next question Maryland meanwhile placing Durkin on, administrative leave over the weekend along with head football athletic trainer. And the director of athletic training ESPN noting that the. Foundation of the actual story remains unchanged more people we talked you after Jordan died we realized that. This is more this is a bigger issue this is cultural and that's when things really started. Happen so we've been reporting this for, two months. And I can tell you this since it came out nobody's just the biggest thing Maryland has disputed was that there was a. Seizure at five o'clock they Maryland officials have said a statement coach trainer no player has, ever said anything to us or anyone who's doing extra investigation about a senior at. Five o'clock on that rebuttal I haven't. Heard from anybody who has said that there are any inaccuracies in. That story Which would make comments like those from will must muster another

"Have some things that play so we'll just plan accordingly Business something every year I'm not disappointed I got a bunch of, guys I, hear it goes to get ready for the season that's what we're doing right so the. Wait continues Donald's, learning process slowed a bit ESPN jets reporter rich Somany spoke about the. Situation earlier on Dr Ian, Mel with. Hosts Matt Jones and Myron medcalf. How's this. Going to end, and do people in the jets can't think that it is. Likely to soon resolve itself Well I mean it's, gonna end, with him signing a contract at some point the impression I got, late last night, was that it was not on the verge, of happening I think both sides have strong opinions about this and so you know it's funny because these things are supposed to be lay, ups you know these rookie deals are slotted we know exactly how. Much, money he's gonna get. Paid it's four years a little over thirty million but there's just little you know there's clauses. Thing called offset language which is a little bit technical but you know there are. Supposed to be. Minor negotiating coins but there's just. A sharp difference of opinion between the jets and his. Agent on that offset. Language. Which allows the team, to recoup money they owe him if he if, they cut him any signs elsewhere basically that's what it is so he's, already missed one practice and. This could turn into a serious situation for the jets how? If if at all risks does this affect Todd Bowles In his ability to keep his job because. I, think that's the big question. Going forward by yeah I I. Don't, really see that I mean let's say this about Sam darnold I I. Mean the jets are hoping were they are expecting him to convene compete for the starting job. If he has a good preseason he could be. There week one starter, but they have two guys who played in the league I. Mean they, have Josh mccown who granted, not the youngest guy in the world he's thirty nine. But he had his best year last year, he is the number, one quarterback, right now and they have Bridgewater who is former Viking starter who's, looked pretty good, you know throughout the spring so they have, it's not like Todd has no quarterbacks so they got to competent quarterbacks and you know so I think it's way too early to be, you know saying that Taj job is on the line why is. It, too early to talk. About Todd Bowles possibly losing his job he's eight games under five hundred during his tenure look. Let's put it this way if he goes five and eleven This year he's going to be out. Of a, job I mean you can't go five and eleven three years in a. Row you know, is this team a playoff team no I. Don't think ownership expects to make the playoffs this year they're rebuilding so if he shows progress on five five and, eleven he'll, be back if the team you, know just kind of flat lines or, goes backward I think you'll be gone I think. I was referring to your reference to connecting it, to Sam, darnold future this year is hinging on Sam. Darnold his future is hinging on how this team does, so yeah it's not. Too early to speculate on his future but I. Think, I just think you know. You can't really connected to Donald Now. Keep in mind the jets open preseason games Friday August tenth at home against the Atlanta Falcons coming up we got action. From the big lake diamond the current stars and. Maybe, if, you're nice and attentive we'll talk about the hall, of famers as well this is, sportscenter allnight, on ESPN radio and ESPN app.
