Head Coach Eli Drinkwitz on Missouri Tigers' Past Season
"It seems like yesterday that we were talking. And i thought i think people agreed your season run very well. You may not have gotten quite the one the winds that you were hoping for but if we could look back for a second what did you take away from from twenty. Yeah you know. I think we exceeded expectations. I think there was a lot of people when we saw this. C- schedule all sec. Schedule come out with what we were dealing with the ncaa sanctions and all that stuff You know the to finish five and five in the league i think we exceeded the expectation But we didn't meet the standard obviously moving forward The goal of this program is to compete for the sec. Nobody plays Football to play for second. And we're in a really good division a really tough division. And i know you know at the top of that georgia and florida but We gotta make room for our self in the sec. And that's why i'm here They didn't bring me here to play for six or seven. We're we're here to try to play first in. So that's that's really the the standard This past year. Like i said we exceeded expectations. I think we're finished To to pick last or second to last in our division we finished third Finished six in the sec but We got to continue to improve. We're not going to get there. You know in one major step we got continue to take it one bite at a time and in bringing in coach wilkes on the defense side of the ball continue improve on the offensive side of the ball become more explosive score more touchdowns in the red zone. Be better than situational football. If we can make those steps. I think we can put ourselves in a position to contend you know if you look at the halftime scores against the two teams. The two top teams in the sec. It's twenty one to fourteen against georgia And then we didn't show up in the second half in florida we. We had a turnover right before half time to make it twenty two seven And we didn't show up in the second half we got gotta be a team that shows up in the second half and if we can do that and then we can make our place in the sec.

NCAA Tournament West Preview
"It's ncaa tournament time we had championship. Week was absolutely spectacular. You had a championship game. That wasn't so spectacular in america conference by the big twelve was tremendous big. Ted was tremendous. Because you know what those two leagues are tremendous all season. Long games aren't games. they're events the acc was anti climactic but great for josh passenger and the greatest shield in the history of life. The big east to me was phenomenal. I mean patrick ewing. Not only does he no longer needed credential again but he got into madison square garden and walked away with four games in four days and his team played like an old vintage georgetown team. Pac twelve stolen a bid which was really cool. Wayne tinkle's got it was who was on the hot seat. It was so cool is good coach. A good person attack boil. Who's another great guy still going tournament. So i thought championship week was absolutely spectacular. Your take oh. I thought it was great. I look. I'm gonna tell you houston's legit at chance due to their games including the championship game in the ac. That is a legitimate. I was happy that drake dot in. I was happy that twenty five and four guy in. I thought that was terrific. I love the fact that the drew brothers are in the tournament. The demolishing of creighton shocked the living in. Hell on me. And says i'm telling you i like when you lose guys mclaughlin aquino record and next thing you know man. What are you doing better. The next year matt pain and getting himself in the top four seeds after losing two guys eastern and harms but overawe a look championship. Week was the sec. Tournament was off the charts with the championship. Game and college basketball delivers it delivers every damn nights. Let's go to the west ready. Let's do it all right now. Let's do this number one seat. I was thinking what games in the upper half of the west. Are you looking forward to see. I wanna see what. Oklahoma can do eight nine game now. Maybe it doesn't matter because you're gonna play gonzaga. But i think this i think if you're gonna play along krueger team whether you're konso martyn missouri. Who has struggled or whether you're gonzaga. You know you're going to play a very very good basketball team. And i had them earlier in the year they can shoot it. They defend it. They play hard. I don't think they're overly talented and the kid to get something done but lon kruger is so good at dictating pace. That if i'm sitting here with gonzaga i wanna lesser coach in my second round game assuming that they win. What do you got. Well you know i actually. I think missouri can win that game. A jeremiah tells me he's going to have to go out guard on out on a primitive 'cause they're playing brady at the five and they've run them all over the place on the other side though rate mattis gutter guard that dude on the block to is become a good player control martin's team when they're older and more mature and her physical they are talking tournament. Think about what he did tennessee. So you know this is going to be really good game because you've got a tough physical team in missouri. You've got a team that attacks match ups plays almost four guards in oklahoma. I'm actually leaning towards missouri in this match up. Well you're going to be wrong and that's okay you can be. It's okay. I can be wrong. It will be the first time won't be the last time and you know that's right. I don't have either. We'll on from barry. I but i touched on that but also got to say tony bennett said that most of his team is in quarantine south. Now i don't know about you but that preston kid that plays at ohio university. Ooh yeah he can go and all of a sudden. You're talking about a team that wait a second. I know i know. Virginia's good. I know virginia came on. I know they ended up with the one seat in the acc tournament. But seth you're playing against a hot as hell ohio university team. A team led by jeff bowls. Who frankly he's the perga- guide ohio you because he loves ohio you. He played there with the with the shock of the mac. But when you're playing a team in quarantine sat that tells me they're not practicing. That tells me this is gonna be a hats. This'll be a good game regardless.
NCAA Tournament East Preview
"Welcome to coincide with greenberg dockage in the south bracket where the number one seed is. Bela number two seaters iowa states. Let's get right into it. John gallagher wild and i like john gallagher. Head coach at hartford neighborhood. Man the neighborhood who here west hartford the neighborhood as the ultimate philly guy. John gallagher is the ultimate dilly guy. I've already got the text from. I've spoken is tipped off banquet a year ago. The dude is certifiably insane in a good way. What he no one is going to enjoy the ncaa tournament more than it. So as soon as they won they immediately went to indianapolis and starts to quarantine and have experienced john. Enjoy it. we're gonna say nice things about you. You're a good guy. And ballard dance so nokes no trepidation about baylor's performance against oklahoma state. Oklahoma states really good people are losing their mind. What at at baylor games. They're playing in the big twelve. They're not planning west coast conference. You're playing in the big twelve. You're planning against other teams that have good players. You're gonna lose games all right. The next game is interesting. Opening round games wisconsin. Why i think he's just not right against north carolina who depending on the day is not right. I mean real simple carolina. You can take care of the ball. Are you gonna make your shot if you take care of the ball and at least get shots up. Then you have an advantage. Except that as we know wisconsin wisconsin's analytics over. Like if you just look at their analytics you would think they'd win every game. They don't give up second shots that will turn it over. They get pretty good shots but they don't play winning basketball. I know that sounds weird. But there's something not right. I think carolina find a way to win that game except the carolina. Jecklin hide reminds of this game. Would you like i like carolina. And this and i look whatever's happened to nate rivers whether it's kobe whether it's whatever it just hasn't been good. I expected more out of him. They don't run their stop nearly as well as they didn't pass they rely too much on one. And frankly they're not a one on one team. And you know what would those big garrison brooks bay. Come and all and bacon's and everybody else you can get into wisconsin. Guards make them drivers into traffic. I think this is a pretty good match up for north carolina. I just think they're better. And i think they're going to win the basketball game and i think they're going to win it fairly big. So if you wanna bet on a game this probably going to have tyke spread. That's gonna move it out a little bit. I think this is the game i think. North carolina wins by double digits. All right to winter is the sexy upset. eco nova plant without conquests. Be justin moore play the other day but wasn't good. They started the set a little bit. You know this is. This is a winter key. May play really fast. I've got a low post lower burns at play him about fifty minutes game. he's really productive. Obviously they got a very good camera. Badran the big six seven kind of point guard because they run the show through a tuck this about. They're extremely aggressive. Pat kelsey really likeable dude. Winter months play fast was gonna try to get into half court who you like. Well i i agree with everything you said. I think winter got a hell of a team. But if this was any other organization other than j j rights organization i would say the winthrop's gonna win the basketball game but you still have robinson hurl. You still have samuels. And if healthy justin moore. You've got three guys. You've got the best three guys on the court. And that always bodes. Well now the point guard situation okay. It is what it is. We all know that point guards at villanova stuff are important. It is the sexy. Pick the five twelve upset all that kind of stuff. But i'm not betting against jay wright and his organisation they just seem to overcome things that need to be overcome when they need to be overcome. I great i agree all right. So now this is an interesting north texas by gurus helmi north texas guards. The crap you absolutely flat can guard you an elite defensive team. They put great pressure notable they then eyeball reversal on play. Two man game with javon Handle it let the point guard and that they are really really good solid defensive team. They turn people over there really aggressive. But you've seen teams like that. Purdue doesn't beat themselves. You pretty has probably i i do. I think this is going to be right down to the wire south because what. I've talked to people today actually. Starting last night couple guys. I was surprised. North texas beat western kentucky. Not because i knew anything about no taxes. But because i saw western kentucky for three games and and they're really good athletic on the wing. Strong tough. I think what you said about the all of the defense bits. Dramatically bad against purdue get up into. They're not the quickest. Get shot team jay nineties really the only one that can i think this is going to be. I'm going to bet against purdue because i think produce offensive analytics put them in the top ten. But nobody's really pressured purdue nobody's really got into them and under wings. Don't take this game for granted. North texas is going to cover whatever the point spread is pretty wins. It the end. Are you got another big time. Texas tech utah state and utah state. Pounds that thing in pain name is cadence a big physical that play a four round. One run actually pretty good motion and so pretty good actions to me. The kid just being an interesting precedent. Don't shoot it as well as they happen to pass but they really defend the top five rebounding They're a very good offensive antiques. Keta against texas tech doesn't have a legitimate big tonight. I mean or cassette said

How much more do they got gotTa Schedule Your I guess what would you say? I think you have to do what you have to do. My thing is I look at this, and again we've seen what's happened in Major League baseball with the Marlins and I think it was of the cardinals and then we just all right now it just came out about the Vikings. I think maybe you should I, think. My thought would be UH schedule as many games as I can. because. I'm not sure we're GONNA play many games. You know what I mean like I'm not scheduled twenty seven of thirty hoping to play twenty to twenty five. I. Some guys. Oh. Yeah. That's one way to look at it.

You normally don't go to their Frat House. Don't go to that bonfire. Don't go to whatever just you know sacrifice a little bit and you know what we'll see maybe I've said this forever said I think baseball got through their season because guys got caught early. And they were made they were made an example of in the media. When it's the same thing with football I'm hoping basketball doesn't have to deal with it and it probably will. Let's be honest. You early in somebody's in example then you know others don't WanNa, be that guy hopefully we'll see. What. Do, you got more rings going on than anybody I mean we got late.

Show with everything that's going on in the world obviously We have a group text all those guys that we stay in touch with Maccabi. We D M A lot and I actually just traded message is that I was just checking on his family. They're great family and now that was a big game for him obviously because You know he's from the State of Baltimore and all the kids from state of Baltimore. You know Maryland's kind of you know that was our guys that 'cause when we played Maryland the great throw up game where dreads a lost his stuff but but we played Maryland and we're five and five against him as he say they were always great games. They were always really really special games. The throat game greatest because as I said in a in the podcast you know Gary Legitimately you know is only Gary. Do he told him to throw off because we were getting Iran. I said what I rubbed my ear. I said blow your beans zone blowing. We gotta get going and change stemple but we laugh. We laughed at that. A lot of the Of course Gary and I are very good friends so he was at a university asked. My brother played there and like I said in a bogus he summoned I really admired stay evaluated and they coacher guys hard and those guys played really hard platform watching them do it. The right way gave us hope we could do the right way last question for you because this game was so tightly contested all the way down to literally the last shot. It's not shop. So Malcolm Delaney. He gets the ball. You guys got like ten seconds. He's come up. The court gets the elbow and he's basically triple team. T passes it to air green the corner who misses the three he was open. Was that the right move or did you. WanNa see Malcolm do a little something more with it. He had to make the right play. I mean we always say trust their trust your teammates and you gotTa make play on the guy wanted to bail out at a Malcolm San Aer Green Number. Two years later the timeline scorn and so he was making that pass to guide it. You know it's pretty good player. He's young freshman but I mean in that moment in time You Know Malcolm gets draws defenders. This is one of my pet peeves in college basketball. You know just general whole whole. We tried to run it drag form of stake in the of ball screens to get to play and you get to the player. Then you're basically plant for three in the back and you know they over helped on Malcolm and we spend a ton of time teaching our guys all right read. Read the two guys that are on you or you gotta read the three defenders Behind the high in the ball screen. And you know he got a good lucky. Made a lot of good chat Shots FOR US. Understand him and lead the country in scoring so it's not like he threw the ball to could make shatter make a play. Why pretty pretty open to good stuff that you WANNA tease.

Who's done incredible job back his ALMA MATER? And you know like every level basketball you go through different trials and tribulations and obviously there's no handbook or manual for what we're going through today but I think it'd be really interesting from the perspective. His perspective on how you deal with your team moving forward in in these troubling times. And then we have my Mandy Kennedy coming on at any Kennedy APPS work with a couple of years. The head coach at all miss was the interim coach at Cincinnati in he's back at his Alma Mater. Uab And he's taking over a job in the middle of this pandemic you know. Basically we're GONNA talk a little bit about. I coached against a handy. When he was a player. Coach gets mothers occasional miss. He worked for hogs who I think she'd be in the hall of fame so word has great storytelling with that. Dan and I will allow we. Might we might try to even have Mike Tariq. Oh launch a little bit overweight. Get that confirmed to talk about some of the Great Games that he called the Dan Dockage Mike to Rico love fest. 'cause they work together so often those big games but we might go with a tripleheader this weekend at this week because I think context of the game right now we we need to look back.

I looked at the way. He coached his team to one thing. You knew that they weren't going to be opponent. I don't care if they were rebuilt stage or whatever they were in there and win then we're back down to anyone any player and coach and like my mindset. Was I watched every coach? I my my assistant. I was bad. I wasn't as tough on my sis zero now during the course. I've got two guys waiting. According to what here's The I knew Gary steams as I watched him grow Vine San every single.

I would sit in our meetings and Sarah at Maryland's doing this. How can we fit that? What we're what we're doing. And then the other thing is look.

"seth greenberg" Discussed on Courtside with Seth Greenberg
"Greatest podcast. We need to just totally change the name we should be like Prince. It should be the world's greatest podcast and then we should just have a symbol like something like the world would like glowing because the world's greatest podcast. Now I hear my name. Is Seth Greenberg a little bit under the weather? So we're going to be easy on him? We don't want to beat him up at all today because he is a busy man but one thing about college basketball never disappoints even on Sunday. Great Games every single night. But let's kind of review the weekend real quickly. We got a great guest by the way. Because we've got Anthony Grant in the House. Who's an incredible job B squared? I'M GONNA keep it short. I'm gonNA keep it sweet. Ucla all of a sudden seven rope eleven and thirteen. You put them in the tournament. And how does something like this? I would absolutely put him in Ansi Double A. Tournament but I would put East Tennessee state. I put Vermont. This is the year to get rid of the Indiana's the rutgers let you win a game at home. I've been watching your texts on. Ucla and you're so right. Look you get a job. Everybody wants to fight. Everybody knows more than you. We've got our own way while you're way stoke as a as a UCLA player and they guard. They defend their tougher now. They've bought into it so I'm all in on. Ucla absolutely should be the tournament. I WANNA see First Place Teams in Leagues Not Tenth Place Teams Leagues there. It is and Straw. I agree with you. They got even though you're on bit weather even though you can't talk email you got three more hours radio even though you got a big ten podcast you just come right out of the chute. Wake up get out of bed and just answered about like. Here's my deal. I mean they'd be in Colorado twice leading Arizona twice they'd be like you've got the beat teams that can win Games in the answer by tournament. And that's what they've been able to do. An identity doesn't happen overnight. Identity is a process headline you know. I think the biggest thing is. Let's face it. Steve Recruited Steve Alford recruited theme to play. Certain way you'll quite honestly. I think that mix style plays totally different. The kids back a little bit early. He was unrelenting. Now they're rebounding. They're defending their turning people. Over and Tiger Campbell. Let's Steve Alford didn't have Tiger Campbell and Tiger Campbell is now healthy. He's got burstow game at fourteen assist against Arizona State. The other day made plays. They're making big plays finishing games. That's good so now. We got that out of the White Home. Another guy that like the hard thing. Do Coaching when your team is absolutely sideways. Get Back Ed Cooley. Providence goes into Nova and wins. Yes I do because they're playing well and you go to Novi Win late in the year. I mean that's when nobody is supposed to be really good. Here's the thing I like about it. Coolly Ed coolies team is tough. I don't put much stock seth I know I know I'm wrong. I know you beat Florida state back in November. I don't care about that now. I know I know I'm wrong but I don't care about I care about. What are you good enough to be in the NC Double A. Tournament? Or should you be rewarded for having a great overall year? I don't care who pushes back at that. Put up put in providence in because providence is tougher nil. Providence is winning games. Providence is one of those rock fight teams. Give me providence all day long in the NCAA tournament over the twelve team in the big ten. Absolutely Yeah Seton Hall George George Marquette Villanova at Butler Creighton a team. That was a tough game the other day but again. I think the amazing thing about that Ed is like he's developed this team right off the he was this guy but the Pitkin cave came from. Umass give me the air. I'm not sure he understood how they wanted. To Play Mate Watson God healthier getting him back was obviously changing their team. So I'm all in on Providence. As well as the fighting Ed Cooling said he coaches his guy. Let Me Tell You. They love him but he coaches his dudes hard. I mean hard speaking of that another team that I think these are my comeback coaches of the year Greg art absolutely incredible. What he's been able to do and say we want and we talked about last week. We've just hit on a quick Brad. Davidson had a great quote at the end of the game. He was interviewed by. I forgot who it was might be just Saddles Ed. He asked him. You know you really played while Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and. He said I played from teammates. I'm playing for those guys in the locker room. I don't WanNa let them down You know I love this team. I you know we're on together almost in a way you'll get put words of the guy's mouth like he was talking that you know what we got everyone opponent in the same direction. We got a good lock role. We trust each other. No one's complained and no one's Moan and no one's bitching. We're just you know what we're going out. And we're buying the coach whereby until Wisconsin Basketball and. We'll do it with each other. I mean you know to Kate. Better Naidoo but man. They're playing good set. They're shooting it. You Know Greg Guard my opinions coach of the year I get it. I said this last week I get it. Everybody wants Pat Chambers. Well they're starting to lose. Everybody wants Pikayev one one road game all year long. I'd go to what Wisconsin has done. Wisconsin the whole tragic thing with Howard Moore and his family. That is so tough on everybody. Set everybody and then you got. Kobe came whining and quit. And then you've got a change in style we're now all of a sudden. G- regard fakers announces the hell with this. Let's go man. We're going to go ahead and shoot some threes. And we'RE GONNA go ahead and spread this out. Greg Guard adjusted better this year than any coach. I've seen in the entire country all year long. I'm not saying he's national coach of the year. But I am saying. He's the big ten coach of the year because of what he's at overcome this particular season. The I think I think his ability to adjust to his team coach Exhau- about put guys position to play their strength coaches all about You know when you look at your team centre-right how am I gonNa win with this group of players. Do you have your core of what you WanNa do but apps you have that core. What are you going to from there to enhance your player skill sets and abilities and what he's been able to do and let's face it while all that stuff was swirling around that program. Which is to me. I just think it's that's a hard thing to do to stay level headed while everything's going around you've got to be comfortable in your own skin. You've got confidence in what you're doing. And you know he might not light sound silly but he might not WanNa Look. He might not look like the guy that you know oyu no. He's he's the leader but you know what he's the league. There are like eleven or twelve threes. A game during this win streak right. Yeah last night was the first one last night to me. Eight and they've been making no less than eleven so they wanted a different way. I watch I'm not alive and six so I started the game that I fell asleep but the truth is you Minnesota. Desperate team in. Wisconsin wasn't playing. Well they weren't making anything but guess what they did. They found a way to win. And isn't that what you're supposed to do this time of year? You're supposed to find a way to win instead of find a way to lose him. Wisconsin's finding ways to win. I agree all right so you got you got you got you got Virginia Talk. About Hannah figuring it out. I'm watching Virginia and I've watched him closely and I know they can't score sixty and all that jazz. Let me tell you some length of their defense the length. Hof and key and Keith Day Sensei and then the pressure to ball on key. Hey Clark the length of their defense is really really hard. I mean like you ever a lot of people play pack line but yeah. I've always said if you're going to really play pack line that you need to have. Lenzi can close out and get back to choose. You need to have pack line so that when you stay in your arms out you're actually taking up more space like playing big across your shoulders using your arms in your length to close down passing lanes and then. Jayhawk was out of his mind. Multi didn't even do anything and he's been helping offensively but like you gotta be impressed with Virginia. You gotta be concerned with Duke. Because after and Karen after trae Jones who can without on Virginia Bandwagon Unite talked about? Just win baby. I'll give a damn just win. And here's the thing with do think about this do can lose any way you want do can lose. Give it up. One hundred thirteen can lose given up fifty two. So they're showing they can lose any way you want. I still believe in Duke. I think Duke's going to be a very very very very very difficult out. I could see them going into the final four. I get all that but I will tell you this they. They gave a bully fifty two. They've gone backwards this year. And I'm not just talking about defensively. They've gone backwards in their shooting. You said and you're right. Joey Baker Alex. Okay somebody go have to step up for them. Somebody's going to have to make some shots on the perimeter and in my world as I go through and talk to coaches. That's the first thing they tell me. Hey look we're really good when we're making shots but we're not. We're just like everybody else. So Seth I that's fine. They'll be fine but I I'm shocked at how they've gone backwards this year. Here's my thing I mean. I think the number of minutes Trade Jones played forty again play thirty seven. Thirty seven game I think gender last nine games he plays forty forty getting like. I think the thing about the down down the stretch. They don't have anyone to make a play like the takeover. When who's got like you know like Zion Williamson? Ain't rolling through that door but I mean I think they're confused. I mean matthew hurt plays nine minutes Joey. Baker now plays nine minutes like Alex O'CONNELL. He went from starting to play three minutes. Like I know a lot of it has to do with their defensive match-ups but I just think it's. It's more a frustration by the coaching staff. Like going who who's going to step up. Who Can we count on? They went with that small lineup which was crazy. They should've played my thing. And I'm going to practice every day. Jack White Dwarf Small Lineup against the Front Court of Virginia and Keith. Dan huff and only did was down the stretch. They just rolled the Keith. I write down for the block. Threw the ball. They couldn't guard him so I mean like I think I'm looking. I'm a little head scratching that they're.
Penn State Cinderella Story Continues, Pat Chambers discusses his team
"All right. We'd like to welcome in Penn State head coach Pat Chambers One. Eight of his last nine coach chambers. Welcome to the world's greatest podcast with Greenberg dockage. Dan Open things up because he is the big ten Guru Guru. I like it. Hey coach last night what happened. We didn't make implicity the voting go in the basket. That's a big leads with that. That's the truth the balls gotta go in the basket for you to win the game. I mean it was a rock fight. Both teams played extremely hard It gives you all know Brad credit for what they did defensively on Stevens and our shooters and then I was fantastic me. He was hurt for about four or five days there and he comes back and he looked healthy and strong and extra little kicking his step for sure he looked fresh. I think that's why he's able to make any place down the stretch for them. Forget about that that game. You won't eight in a row. You want eight zero at Penn State. You've got sixty wins in two and a half years already. Which is absolutely incredible. Most wins in the three year period. I think if I'm not mistaken in the history of Penn state and he's got a lot of season left. How did this group happened? I guess is the best question each. That's why he loved dockage right. He just wants to talk about the negative sake us right. Oh recent Yay balancing. I was conscious classic. Look I just think Lamar Stephen Staying? The course and Mike Walk and staying the course. The older yet veterans Guys that are loyal. Loyalty is is very. As you guys know loyalties everything these guys committed state committed to not only but the staff at each other the players in that locker room and the program so at Penn State. You GotTa get older and you gotta stay old now. We gotta stay old and Dan you were you. Were there at the pleasure when these guys were freshmen. We've played each state. You knew we building something special. We just have to stay the course. We have to be patient and fortunately city Barbara was patient And that's why you're able to to go through some growing pains and learn and get some shared experiences. And that's why you're able to you know as SEF just said sixteen sixty wins in the last three years. It's a great accomplishment for these kids. Twenty and six Penn State two games out of first place with Maryland. I think I don't think Maryland has an easy schedule. I think this could still get very sexy coach. Talk about Lamar Stevens. His his sidekicks other than Watkins are gone from that game but man is he been good. We'll real steady Really Mature Really grown up In his approach and everything he's doing from from cold cubs yoga to getting it. Sure shot's taking care of his body take and then his leadership ability and autos and in the locker room that practice is a kid. Who's you know? We only got a few weeks left of the season regular season and he still bought into the culture of doing all the little things that we need. Do to keep getting better. And that's been his message. You know he guys what we can get a lot better. We gotTA clean this. We gotTA CLEAN THIS UP CLEVELAND. So if we can do that now you really. GonNa put put ourselves better position. I mean we're a great position now but he wants more. He's hungry for more. I mean he's gotta be up there for for player of the year in this league. I mean there's I know guards it and I know thirty. Counting cash is another straight players. But Lamar Steve has got to be in the conversation. Now you played last night. You've played it for a while now without your second leading scorer Myron Jones. What what does he bring? What's the timetable to bring them back? See Dan I'm learning this thing here. I'm trying to create some news out of this question and that was the kind of newsy question. Dan's radio show now. This is something different dad. We J. for sure. Obviously we're evaluating. We want him to be as healthy as possible before we bring them back on the floor. I think we would be doing him a disservice if we brought him back any earlier. So let's make sure he's as healthy as possible so we can really contribute any safe. You know that's important kids. Safety Ethic is what Penn State's all about But to lose your second leading score and go three and one is about the depth and you guys know this you know. We've never had that type of depth in my tenure. We're talking about Mike Tenure I was never able to go seven eight nine deep and this year. We were able to do that for the most part now. Mj's down guys have been stepped. Brockton has been stepping up tomorrow. Wheelers stepping up Curtis Jones has been stepping up as long as we get contributions from everybody we. We can continue to compete. Continue to get better. Hey you mentioned your Athletic Director Sandy. The importance of for one somebody sticking with someone Santa. Barbara's been amazing Look I Texas Texas Tech. Today we need to do a case study other directors need to watch not jump the gun and go find out what might win the press conference or make the public happy I think it's she's been inside the walls here. She's been inside the program she sees what we're doing a culture wise inside a lock room. She comes to practices. She sees developing our players. And how we're getting better and You know I think it's all pay off both of us. How about the environment? I you know you go to Penn State. It's got this great name obvious identity but I was so. They had some issues with the football situation but the environment. What makes Penn state like when you when you take that job? It's a big job and all those other things it's more money and and that's great now that you're there now that you're having success. What makes it the right place for you? Because let's face it as coaches? You're only as good as last season you can you? Can you know people have short term memories I? It's not an easy job. So what makes it where you say you know what not only can I win but I can sustain it? I mean what's the key to sustaining? Besides just getting players. Yeah. I think it's buying. I think you both would agree with that right. Top top down by into what we're trying to do complete and total investment into making. Sure that look we.
Kardashians of College Hoops Edition
"Oh yeah it's courtside with Greenberg and Dockage Aka the world's greatest podcasts. And before you didn't I want to thank everybody. That is downloaded downloaded as everybody. That has listened To make this a very popular podcast. I don't want my phone to ring So we'll turn that off. But the coach whisper. Seth Greenburg along with me. Dan Dockage. We're going to get right into it. Seth North Carolina Duke unbelievable than North Carolina jumps right back and gets it done like you said last night kind of a tournament weekend for both teams actually all teams kind of those two teams. Yeah tell you what the that game was ridiculous and you know we we talk about fifty fifty the last hundred games exact. Same number of points Carolina coming in with a losing record by the way shout out Carolina fans. They showed up a game day. We do appreciate with that. It helps it makes it more exciting as a game when the game started. It was like Vintage Carolina basketball when it started a lot of us. Did it up and transition playing the head of the Defense Lisa attacking playing through the post to the offensive glass. They did everything they could do. The first step excluding defend carry but the ending was luck. I mean I don't know how they're great rivalries I don't know how many rivalries end in in the way that these do Carolina Games end because there was no way in the World Carolina. I should've lost that game. They missed free throws then they can stop the basketball so do came right down to two seconds later did then. They'd Bangle show off the free throw in and lose a little focus and trae Trey Jones makes that play. I mean the number of crazed plays if you tried to recreate that the odds of that happening again. We're probably the the same as the odds of these guys playing one hundred times being fifty fifty and scored the same amount of points. Would you agree. You'll God yeah. Yeah the the odds of both or none saying Yeah Trey Jones man. He was good and I don't think he's a closer but he was good at the end of that game. I I've said before based on hate North Carolina and Duke is great but based on Hate Louisville and Kentucky. Talk to me was always been my favorite rivalry because they're literally insane and they go after each other one coach coach at both places. And all that kind of thing. But I gotTa tell you based on Games based on endings. There's there's nothing like Duke in North Carolina. It's almost like the gods have said we deemed this to be crazy every time and I think you know. Jay said it always delivers and all. And he's right like not only does it always deliver. It always delivers in spectacular fashion. And let's be honest. trae Jones was great until he shot an Air Ball. And then you know what there he was well Picking it up laying it in and set do do you agree with this. Bad teams find a way to lose. Could that apply to Carolina in this game yet. Do I think that I think at the end of the game. I mean you find a way lose you step up to Lonzo. Makeup of free throws games over boom history. And you got guys stepping up and barely hitting the rim. You gotta find a way to just slow down the ball. Aw a little bit so that you can't just come flying down and I think in the back of their minds I mean like you and I've had teams that have been like that. It hasn't happened a lot of Carolina there has to be self doubt that energy that enthusiasm they played with. We've got a thirteen or so instead of just finishing it off like a good team. A team that expects to Windows there was some self doubt. And there was some place that you kinda head-scratching plays and just you know like look. The end of the game run a bulletin. Your hands is be strongly to basketball. Limited one shot contain the ball transition so that you can force an extra passing stay in front and then when you get filed step up to the line and knock get down just you know have some jewels and step up in line and knock it down and look duke made place you gotTa give them credit they do whatever and carry. I've been very carry. It goes out. I I said three things. You GotTa do to beat Duke. You gotta play ahead of the defense and scoring transition baskets. You gotta be strong with the basketball not commit live while turnovers rovers and you gotta make Vernon Carey defend and get him out of the game. They got him at a game on charges. They did those things but they didn't do enough things to finish off the game. Same great atmosphere. Great Energy Co. Anthony was good not great trae. Jones was terrific down the stretch and made plays now. Let's head to the Florida state game. What did you see last night from Duke? You said boy. I'll tell you one thing. They validated that win or two lab still concerned. I'm not totally an undue. I think I may not do. I think they validated that win. Big Time I think that their defense was terrific. I I put this out on twitter and I believe it. I thought their transition defense is the best. I've seen they get back and they they make shoot over at the worst. They influence you by being in the right position to take charge. I when you'RE GONNA make a list and we'll all do this at some point probably sooner than later but if you're GONNA make a list of teams that can win a national championship. I've got duke up there with anybody I really do. I gotta go into Vernon Carey more. You said that last night on television I totally agreed. Earning Carey can never be forgotten in his offense caches plan while he's playing lights out there getting decent production for mothers mothers. I I'm I'm all in on this Duke. I love their defense set. There was. It's kind of like this beginning it here when we would talk or I I remember doing duke. Two Games In the garden you you know love their old school keeping on a side defense. Maybe that went away for a while but I like it now I do i. I liked it last night and I like Florida state. Let's be honest. You talked about the world being maker Miss Tie Game Florida state at some wide open threes from the corner each side and one air balled the other. They miss badly. So I'm not down on a Florida state. I just think duke validated. Everything happening in Chapel Hill. You I thought Duke was good. Here's my thing I mean. Far To say it's hard to play against because they do turn you over and they spent them up a little bit and everyone said well to back. The Back Game Duke was going to be tired so different turned game. You play Thursday play Saturday you know. That's no different than what happened with you. Played in Chapel Hill eight miles away and you come home and you play a home game. That's that's easier than playing almost as easy as playing an NCAA tournament weekend but hear my concerns with Duke. I think that number one trade joe shot the ball fifteen or sixteen times burned. Kerr shot at five times. They gotTA figure out a way when people get up up and underneath them they gotta figure out a way to run offense and get the ball where they want it not stick it in trade Jones's hand coming off a high ball screen because I don't think so at at the end game I'm not sure and he did it against Carolina. He's a great finisher at the rim or a great decision maker coming off of that stuff. So that's a little bit of a concern. I love their defense or defence is terrific because it starts with trae Jones on the ball and then they were athletic enough with born and Stanley to get in passing lanes and and the defensive transition was great turning it over. I mean you know they got sped up and turn it over twenty one times. They gave up seventeen offensive rebounds and forget Florida State. I think Florida state upside is as good as Eddie team in the country. I really do believe that I think because every night there's a different guy who can beat you like last night. Trump forest was great. It could be Patrick Williams. It could be Denver sell. It could be osborn. It could be any number of guys you know could be Walker that could beat you on any given night. I just don't Oh in a possession game in the tournament. How does a Duke has to grind out and get a basket? Who Do you give the ball to? And how do you get him the ball all the same problem that I said last year with design Williamson team like they never figured out a way all right. This is how we're GONNA GET ZAINAB ALL. This is where he wants to get the ball so to me if they can overwhelm you and I call. Bully ball like Duke Duke as at their very best. They've overwhelmed people with their defense. And then they basically got a transitional made plays you think they're good enough if it gets to a grinded out game to win a game against life type opponent. Yeah I do I look. Here's what I believe. I believe even Alex O'CONNELL and enjoy Baker going to influence. The Gay is not because they can make shots you know and I I think they'll have influence. I do. Who says I think there's a toughness air with this group? I think Duke has instilled Gin. They're not GonNa Win National Championship every year. But it's a little bit like Tom. Izzo Bet against Michigan State. Even though they're out of the polls me yeah. I'm sure you are but don't be surprised when they make a run. Actually you can put a lot of ways you can put Syracuse in maybe this year but over the years but yeah. I'm not betting against Duke. I think Duke has you said they're flawed. We talk about every team being flawed. But yes I I can see them making a run as deep as you know winning a national champion I can also see them losing because of the things that you just said but man i. I feel like this team pretty much for the entire year has had the toughness culture of Duke Basketball and that's the thing that has served them best over the years I I feel that an abundance of talent I get all that but this team seems to have a toughness about him. That's terrific.
"seth greenberg" Discussed on Courtside with Seth Greenberg
"Survivor game against Marquette cat on a Friday night and they they look they look good but they're definitely fun. Yea Kristen David is out for the year. And he's a kid has made been good enough to make a game winner earlier in the earlier in conference season. I think this I think they are very good. I think they are very tough. I don't think they're overly really athletic. I don't think that that they are the kind of they're gonNA play close games against good teams. And that's you know. Hey you win them. You're great but they're not overly athletic and they're not the kind of team that can dominate you with quickness great closer he was unbelievable it down the stretch Kamar Ball unbelievable unbelievable. Yeah but they're just not they're gonNA. They're really good tough sound basketball team. That isn't gonNA overpower you with lettuce. System and in tournament play. They're gonNA play close games period. I think yeah. I mean like. They've got the not Virginia from last year but the field is in Virginia but they played a slow tempo. They're good defensively Kamar Baldwin. He's GonNa go right and and get to a middle game which I thought was great and just I mean he made two shots to pull up and then the right hand layup ridiculous. I do think though the one thing I do think they make it hard for the up teams best player. They've been miserable for for Howard life miserable and he. He didn't realize that and he continued to try to chase now. I think the one concern for me is. They've got a very very small margin error and I don't know who else they were playing without Thompson yet. They say you have a better feel bad. Yeah but who else can make a play when they need one besides boggling. I don't know if you need another guy sides him because that dude he he was unfazed by moment at taking. Yeah you know I do MC Dermott can make a shot there. INCISA mentioned Christian. Daniel has hit a winner in Thompson is a terrific. He'd like Ronald Nor ed was when they when they went to the final. Four twice. Great off ball. The feds are great points that I I don't talk to get him a shot right. Yeah a I said I think they're bigs are really are they guys that are going to go jump over. You'd know Oh but they're gonNA get position and score around you through you that kind of stuff I don't know I mean look set. I'm telling you if if if I'm playing them. Maybe McDermott is going to have to hit a three to beat me. But I'm not letting Baldwin anywhere near the Kobe Bryant spot you know that elbow we're elbows your member. Golden his right hand yeah. I'm not letting them do a somebody and maybe that's what happens. Maybe teams really get after him and it opens is up at three from McDermott or it opens up something for Tucker next one. Let me throw another one at you. Since you guys are letting me speak I gotTA bring up my Maryland terrapins. They grinded out a a win against Indiana Jalen Smith Flex on assembly hall. Got The hoosiers. I don't know about that in there. Come on Jalen I understand. Having these children. Surgeon Mark Churches head omits explorative that game. Did you say Mark Right over him grabbing him he. It almost exploded that he was running and doing that thing. Here's my deal and like just even league like I think Maryland's really talented. But they. They can't do dude one thing. You've got to be up to do to doing that. They can defend all. I don't trust them making shots. Oh like NCW tournament. Can they make shots over two weekends. I just don't see I mean I just they they. They go too many times with long periods of times where they cannot. I'm not make a shot and score you do that in tournament. Where the pressures greater and I think eventually it's going to catch up whether it's in the first half of the second half they just find ways where they actually get stuck offensively? I think they need to play faster. More ahead of the defense so they can play more on instinct. I think the more they get stuck in the half court the more difficult it is because it's just seems like they don't get a good enough shot when they're in the half court Taylor Smith first and foremost I think he did nothing wrong. I think Jalen Smith the video that I saw that has since been deleted of him going over to this particular group of idiots at Indiana on the front row. Who have for years taunted kids? I heard it in eight when I was a head coach in fact I told him one that. Go blank himself when I was coming onto court. These are penny millionaires in Indiana. That think there's something and I know exactly who the two two guys are that It looked to me I could be wrong and Smith. Maybe didn't go and did more than I saw but I applaud plot Jalen Smith for doing that because the two fifty something year old guys at taunt kids every game need. Have that happen. In terms of Turgid I did think his head was good explode came over and a sprint. He did not want a Kansas Kansas state situation. Hey you know it's happened before and assembly. Everybody everybody loves Brian Cardinal Right Brian Cardinals. The Greatest Guy. Brian Cardinal took a towel and wiped assembly floor danced on the the logo there but for whatever the reason. Brian Cardinal Never caught the hell Jalen. Smith hasn't a lot of it has to do with the social media. So look got no problem as in Indiana Seventeen Year Indiana player coach Jalen Smith particularly at the two guys or three guys that he did it at good for you Maryland needs to play faster. Maryland in half court is a bit of a disaster wiggins. Hit a monster. Shot Against Indiana. They rain great action to get a bucket for Jalen Smith which ended up being the game winning. But it's few and far between that team I've done eighty I don. Three quarters of their game and Johnny Holliday are the official announcers of of Maryland. I've been saying that forever push. Go Go go mark turgeon noses team. I'm better than we know. I'll defer to him. Slightly Maryland needs to push in Maryland. Needs to go. Seth Greenberg I if if they you do. You'RE GONNA see wiggins make you're gonNA see I'll play better. You're going to see more cell. Go to the rim. If they don't they're going to get stuck and everybody's GonNa continue to be angry but that was a good winning and and I applaud Jalen Smith. I don't care maybe a bad guy but I don't care. I applaud them because I have no pro. I like I like to. We had a similar situation through one one year. I to me I. I don't have a problem with it because I think kids need to celebrate taunt as one thing celebrate is another issue quick. Stop you right there. Let Me Indiana fans are well. Jalen Smith needs to be the bigger man and be more mature. What you got now? These dudes that sit in the front row at call Penny Millionaires Indiana rich guys. You know these guys are guys at claim to have played sports at Indiana. Why are they sitting there? Yelling L. and kids I mean the bigger man my ass you get excited you go and win and you have some some idiots yelling and screaming at y'all name. I got no problem with it. What why are? Why are we saying the kid should be the bigger man? What about some fifty year olds? Something Dad's EDSA. Shouldn't they be the bigger man what goes back that way. Well that goes back to the Seth Greenberg philosophy on anything like that and socially you have these guys you have pictures with their young kids and grandchildren and you know are quoting scriptures and then they're like MFN yet. I mean like so like thank you. Brian who has children might have student at Indiana. Or maybe a grade schooler that they might you know your tote around and then all of a sudden they they walk walk into this arena and they act like idiots so Like if someone acts like an idiot and as you know in a lot of ways You say what you should be the bigger man and it's not that easy. It's not one. The one of the reasons. Jalen Smith has had a big game because he's tough and competitive in an environment where you had to be and all of a sudden. Hey two games over. You're just supposed to turn that off at why. There's a video that I saw. If you turn the volume up before Smith ever does anything Indiana's change by the way and I blame all you east coast guys. Don't don't ask me about soldiers hacked the president sold out me. Have you northern northern Chicago. You guys have ruined Indiana. But I digress. Anyway let's go. Let's close team. I gotTA soapbox going here. Well this might provide you an additional soapbox but tell me why the West Virginia mountaineers can't can't win the big twelve boys they gotta go through Baylor probably I mean West. Virginia I Like I love West Virginia right away and hugs. Hugs Tying Adolph rupp. Awesome hugs hugs needs. To be in the hall of fame is a hall of fame. Why are you kidding I I take it bad jobs and one he's he? He is one eight hundred plus games at every level whether it's a wall sure Akron or or Cincinnati or Kansas State or West Virginia. What he can? I answer that I agree with you on hogs hugs because of that. But I don't think coaches should being all fame. I'm looking sound coaching no. I don't think they should be. I mean Roy Williams. I didn't have a great year and why because players I don't I don't think they should be. I really don't i. I don't I don't think I don't don't think this is just a coaches hall of fame. which is separate mega coaches hall of fame? What about what about the leadership that a coach has to deal with wheels talk about more than just the coach there there you know? I think that's gone a little sideways. I'm not sure I buy any of that anymore. I think coaches in this day and age. Yeah yeah they do all that kind of stuff. But I think there's I think money has corrupted well look at love. Tricky players make tricky coaches. And we all know that I mean like you're only as good as the dude. You're coaching coach. I mean I'm just saying Steve Kerr's greatest National philosopher coach. Yeah right how's he doing this year without players. I'm just saying like Bay Heim Hall of fame coach. I mean what he's doing this year anyway. Let's answer the question because that's another soapbox I didn't wins a big twelve but I do think that West Virginia team in the tournament. You do not want to see. You can't simulate what they do. They get extra possessions. They get offensive rebounds. They turn you over They've got a style of play. I always believe that Nancy Aa Tournament. If you win your first game the second day in a short turnaround have you ever unique style of play. That's difficult to prepare for it to US advantage. I think West Virginia is that team. I just like them. I just like how they play. I think they're tough. I mean obviously But at the end of the day. There's no yeah. The only reason they can is because every year you pick Kansas to lose the big twelve and finally rivalry solid. Like I'm a hater. I Hate Kansas this. I hate to say hate it. I just said you go. You Bet that every week and next thing you know our every year next thing you know they do it once and we all got to hear about. Kansas wins big twelve year. You've lost your mom man. Go ahead go on US while we're pontificating all right. So do we think the Dayton flyers they roll to a league title and then what might prevent them from getting out of that first weekend possibly make until final four because they look really good right now really. Well what's going to prevent. donal go ahead. Yeah Soapbox boy right here I oh I think they can definitely get out of the first weekend but I do think this when I watched them An OB top. and His. I will give Seth Greenberg great credit for the. Ob coppins happens emergencies like job. Mirant last year seth. Greenberg is the new Mark Adams King of the mid major Although Dayton's moral major ager but anyway I take good. I think Dayton's very good. I do think this though whenever people say to me get out of the first first weekend second weekend lead type team. Sure the answer is yes absolutely but it it it you gotTa be other really good teams. You know what I mean..
"seth greenberg" Discussed on Courtside with Seth Greenberg
"And dockage the definitive college basketball podcast. Hey welcome to an emergency podcast. The gift that keeps keeps on giving Kansas Basketball Brawl last night. If it happens in college hoops you know suffering are going to be all over and we are the Great Seth Greenberg the coach whisper. Let's get right into it seth. Mo- thing mind boggling. I hear the words that come to my mind egregious both parties culpable This appointing reprehensible in terms of both both teams. Here's the other thing I wanted to get through. This is a pet peeve of eight. Look I understand understand the case. They can should've stole the ball. You know unwritten rule. But you know what he did. That's just the way it is. It's like meal you know you know On at the end of the game the guy that all right the Susan Block the shot. That's fine once. He stood over that kid all hell broke loose now. The Kid James Love for Kansas. State him coming off the bench in dress clothes in that Polo. 'cause he was not healthy enough to play. It wasn't enough to play but himself enough to come off. The bench was absolutely Disappointing but what happened. After that is an embarrassment to college. Basketball's embarrassment the case state. It's a virus with the Kansas. It's embarrassment to the big twelve. I mean you think about this coach. Howard if he doesn't grab it silly Desouza all right? Who knows what happened with that share? I mean they were in the handicap section and then to see the altercation extent right to the end of the wall and she potential players kicking and swinging and hitting. It's an embarrassment. The last thing I'll say about Dan is this is not A. Hey Bill self decision. This is not a Bruce Weber decision administrators standup spanned up league administrators. Stand up athletic director. Stand up and make a statement that this type of behavior is not acceptable. It's an embarrassment to our game. It's embarrassing the every single guy. The played before you in the matter which took place and make a statement those two kids for sure. The two kids were part of the instigation. Should not play again today. You don't think they should play again this year. No way that kid who came off the best Kansas State or out there. That's not a chance. So they decide thousand not a chance you I got a question Marcus. Garvey got suspended from the NFL. Swinging a helmet and saying that helmet was basically a weapon asks. What was the chair? Potentially if it wasn't coach our man dangerous says I would go farther. Here's what bothered me. Guy Coming off the bench. I maybe you make the case. He was protecting his teammates. I don't know okay fine to me I. I don't get this Donovan. A lot of people on twitter. Say Well Dan. Haven't you ever seen a fight us. Three you know in college In street fights in different things. So I've seen a fight on a couple of knowing highschool go I've seen some fights But three guys stopping a guy when he's on the ground to me Is reprehensible it it is I mean what are you. What are you doing you trying to kill him? He tried to name him a teaching him a lesson. I mean to me the chair absolutely Any Right Co Tower did a great job of getting that thing out of his hands but the guy stopping guy who's down on the ground Who does that I mean you gotta ask you in hiring human being you are if you are going to stop somebody on the ground you just have to? You have to ask yourself and your your coach has ask yourself and quite frankly I have a friend who's going through this with his son at a university where he didn't punch anybody. He didn't hit anybody in stop anybody. He was defending offending a girl who got rookie. And he's facing probation from the university for the guy not physically not even threatening just being. They're going after a guy and if I'm president of university if I'm a administrator of a university I I'm having a a decision to make whether or not I'm I'm going to let guys that stop. Somebody swing a chair at somebody remain in my university. And that's not a bill self thing That's just me as a guy. Hi that is supposedly in control of his university. That's what I would do. I mean to me I I agree with you the extent that I think this is this is well above. This is this you president. Let me ask you another question. This is a bigger price. When you continuously your institution on the bottom line never say oh so? I've said this rivalry never a good thing. You see the should I say they had all the time. I say this all the time. Athletic Directors I have egos presidents have egos athletic directors. Presidents have to go answer her for many times players coaches and make excuses quite frankly for players and coaches actions in in the public eye. And if I were that I think they have a chancellor counselor and if I were the athletic director in the chance it'd be I I would have had enough a bill self one thing that that's proven to me is. It doesn't really matter who you bring in their Kansas GonNa win. I mean they just simply are whatever the reason is they win. They'RE GONNA win. I would have a serious conversation about exactly what you just said. Hey look come seeing myself too far a two on the bottom line way too much. You know I'm surprised self admitted to sing. This isn't self the great no blind line guy when it comes to this kind of stuff and I said I'd have I'm with you have a problem with with this being on the bottom line so much. Yeah I it's it's just a thing after another after another and you know it's refreshing of you know what the players are bringing the India program how you bring those players in your program and there's a lot to the situation but I mean this is this is this is really an embarrassment and the matter which took place and You know the he said both sides coupable I like I don't want to say well. This is a has is probably this. Is the Kansas State problem. Also absolutely this say look we all know you got it. I've done at eight before you play first game. I don't want to ever see I had to check with the things I said. Look I don't need to get back. Oh Johnny and my coach you so you gotta stay on on on the bench and by the way our leaders did you step up and make sure that guy step on batch. But there's a difference between apostle a typical basketball five guys go backwards. I mean that was kermit Washington. I mean some of the swings. I mean that that what what took place in that corner of the arena in the disabled corner of the arena where there was that was unbelievable and look. Bill showed remorse who showed remorse. And that's great but and you can't hold their hands twenty four seven. What happened happened? What Asu for people to say well? It's rivalry game please. I don't WanNa hear. It's the rivalry game. I played a lot of rivalry games. You played rivalry games. That looked like it was absolutely something that would happen in the park back. That shouldn't be happening on that stage in that environment. I it's it's it's it's it's absolutely reprehensible and it's it's a black guy on a sport right now our sport that we're looking for to celebrate. There's nothing to celebrate. We're going to Kansas for Gosh Game Day. It is. We gotta go to Kansas. Because it's become story. Part part of it is Game Day is a reward celebrate the game. Celebrate your team's success and and and bring joy to people you know what I understand. What document what happened? You know. We're also you know there are probably other schools and programs that are more rewarding. Oh my gosh sad. We have seeing such a gutlessness. Among administrators in terms of successful coaches know came guys in federal trials. Getting extended is. Is that have assistance going to jail. Not being fired we we have seen this so Do you think let me ask you this question because I'm not putting this on Bill L. Self. I'm I'm putting this Maybe this is a little bit ridiculous and I'm a little bit hesitant to do it because it's really only one five actually last night. We had a kid kicked out the Illinois Game Alan Griffin for stomping on a kid Christian Leitner Amino timberlake style. But in in sticking with this do you. Do you think specific to Kansas. Like you know the bill self has been through all this stuff. You know that. Kansas has been through all this stuff a- at some point internally do players. I don't know the right word. Seth did they tune out leadership. So do you tune it out you only take in the part where you say man. He's GonNa give me the league the tune out the other stuff because of all the the garbage.
"seth greenberg" Discussed on Courtside with Seth Greenberg
"If you're watching college. hoops you Well we pumped it pretty good. I would say over the course of the WIJK The Great Seth Greenberg two-time. ACC coach of the year and of course the coach whisper. When coaches have issues? The first number they call true story story is the Great Seth Greenberg and he either holds their hand or kick some right in the back side. Coach I'm GonNa Start with this coach. We got Patrick Ewing coming on the show. I did that like Georgetown. hoyas going into the week in the garden but I really liked the Georgetown Hoyas when I came out of the week in the garden including although although they lost to Duke your thoughts I like him I I like to go in and I thought they had an look. I got to have a backward and you gotTa have toughness and you know what they do whereas they have a backward way of toughness they also have athleticism and a big guy that can score around the basket and finish I. Georgetown is going to be a really good basketball team out. The look everyone wants to say is packing a bring back the George town of old than I think the pats do bill George Talbot in his own image. no-one no one played hotter than he did But I think they've got a little NBA flavor. The plane fast or playing good space may attack you. They've got good good player. James Kinjo good player Aggressive Attacks Mc lung fearless picket fearlessly bike athletic. I think they've got good depth. Pig toughness toughness I think you're serving. Your seven is an interesting piece. He's got static foul trouble. I think are a really good team. I think they're well coached. And I think I think they have an identity and as I'm watching early season basketball it's nice to see a team who knows exactly who they are and did not back down and I've been in that situation. Why should play against Duke where you're just trying to compete and and put yourself in a position to win the game and I've also been thrown out at Dukes? I understand that's frustration. But I think there were very good team. Sam I do to me man. Duke was impressive because they got down but they never got got nervous and I thought playing a bunch of freshmen and trae Jones. I thought they were very poised very good very duke like it is. We take coach K.. For granted I we wind we complain Blah Blah Blah. But I'll tell you this man that culture at Duke I thought. That's that's what won the game. Seth I did I sat there. They never flinched. When they were down they kept making plays? They kept trying to defend the kept whipping a ball around and post presence. Averni Kerry Junior. GimMe Him all the time. So the old school dude defensively now. I thought there are two things that were interesting when I say by that. I think they're up into the ball. I keep keep you on. The side they deflect passes up the line passes get out in transition. I thought too key players in that game that you know. We're GONNA talk about Vernon carrier area when he catches it on the block. He capacity can shoot comportment ball screens. You can talk about Trade Jones. It sounds crazy. Joey Baker came in when they couldn't score may two baskets allows big huge. That was big and then Jack White we forget. We talked about the freshman all the time and look Jack White Struggle Making shots but matthew hurt the bounds. The American play four minutes. Jack White brought toughness into that game for Duke so we the freshmen are good. But you know they're going to be complemented lamented by the leadership of Trade Jones. The toughness of Jack White maybe some shop baking on a given night in a specific situation of Joey Baker so they've got Legitimate Djinnit death and figuring out when to play whom I think is it was interesting. I thought coach K.. Would have been real easy. Say H Jack. You're playing really hard but you know Matthew Hurts Guy but no they they stuck with with white and I thought that was the best I've seen aboard. I thought was really good. He he has A. He's got a little stiffness to game to me but I thought he was really good. Defense is what they used to be. You know Ziad Williamson could dominate innate. You by jumping a boss free and knocked away. Pass some pure athleticism. I thought fundamentally their defense was better than it's than I've seen it a long while this weekend. Okay I agree I I do. I think Duke dukes better than I thought they were. In fact I love Wendell. Moi reminds me a almost did a t of Chris Carrawell. Yeah well I mean. Chris is on the bench for Duke. He was a terrific player out of Saint Louis and I watch when the more wild same almost exact guy I just. There was a big time environment. Seth it was the Guidon they was still. It was Georgetown Iraq fight for a little bit Pat Ewing on pack yacht. Hot and I liked him. He was about eight ten feet out on the corner. That was fun deal Florida says how about Florida we in the Florida Crosstrek two teams. I want to talk about fourth floor. Let's talk about Virginia question for you is alright. Virginia Casey more cell and Deke go thirteen for twenty twenty five. The rest of the team goes five. Twenty four those guys get thirty. Four of their forty eight points. Were Forty eight points and win again. They were down. They gave up nineteen point yesterday. Nineteen straight points to Arizona state yet had the poised to come back. They last eleven minutes they give up seven points having said all that offensively challenged alledged but the poised to come back play late in the clock continued execute. The you have concerns about Virginia because once again they didn't break fifty three of six games. They didn't break fifty cent. Braxton Qiaotou points two points I mean this is a guy that came out with Alabama and was was shooter. Yeah absolutely I mean look. Let's J. Half had a big game the other night. He comes back with five Clark with. They don't have what they had last year. But I'll say this. SF Here's the thing and you played against them for years and you know this better than I but forty minutes of scoring against Virginia. Virginia is very difficult. There's going to be a stretch now. The interesting thing for Virginia as we move forward is can they score during in that. Stretch when you're not scoring and we'll teams load up on the Akita you've said Craig me if I'm wrong but you said basically from the start of when we start talking college hoops a dea. ki-tae was a threat to be the defensive player of the year but also the ACC player of the year. I mean loading up on the AQUI. Take clocks a little guard. You keep them out of laying you. Keep him under control in pretty a good shape but Braxton key to me is a guy that's got to jump up and make some shots and huff can shoot the basketball. Those are two guys who got to be in double digits if they're going to win night after night in the ACC. That's what I think. Now is a ninety Rusia. Here's the case. Looks like he's more comfortable. He's going to be good player. Yes it leasing already awaiting made fedor like in the old days you play good scowl guy who played gets tight jerome. You play against the hunter and you're chasing guys off of those screens on the baseline and they curl may pocket passionate curl may hit the fade. Now those guys coming up those screens Braxton keeping one of them you don't you're doing your shortcut. Nothing going ball side. You take it away to curl your pocket pass the flare screen and you're not chasing it. You're going under ball screen action which is good and if you may she clocked baby a shooter guy can get downhill and you kind of push up and go under and keep them in front. I think they're going to be a work in progress. It's all season long. It was impressive. After Arizona State went on that run it was really impressive the poise they had to say. Wait a second second heart. Let's dig down. Let's get some stops. Let's try to Marcel. Made some shots. The Keita made a They never panicked. That's the thing that's impressive to me. They just continue to be who they are And they rely on the defense as well ahead their offense and the ad and they stay in their identity again. I'm GONNA use the word identity a lot because I think a lot of teams that don't have an identity they did. I am concerned offensively. You mentioned Florida are they fixed I don't know but I'll tell you this. I watch him play Miami and I watched them last night. They look a lot better to me than they did. A week ago. And blackshirts seems to be the key in the middle. They play through him a little bit. I don't know if they're fixed but they look damn good to me said they did. I mean I didn't know going into the game last night. Xavier of each team was going to get to sixty in fact you know what you got. All these four-star five-star whatever guys the over under number one hundred twenty. Three three people expected a very low scoring game. And I I thought Florida looked a thousand times better offensively they shared the ball. They got in a stance you know. It was very difficult than scruggs are scruggs for anybody to score for squawks. Yeah Yeah Yeah. He's a kid from here in India. who was a very good player? I I don't know if they're the six ranked team in the country. They won't be because of the early season struggles a little bit. But they look pretty. Damn good to me. Seth and black share look a lot more comfortable to me. And I'm going back to the Miami of Florida game as well. When they routed Larranaga's crew? They looked comfortable to me. Said says much more so than they have early. They're they're better when they're running sets in her half court I mean and then all of a sudden blackshirts getting touches at the elbows getting touches in the mid post. I thought changing defenses. They played one three one back to a man to man. I thought that I thought there have defenses. Is it's really really solid and Yeah I thought they were better Xavier to me watching this weekend. They're a little bit. They play faster than their abilities. I mean they got the two big is I said I think are really good. marshalling and Jones and scruggs is good. But you know I thought they turned it over. They were a little careless with the ball. Especially early they get sped up they play play really hard for try steal and extremely competitive and tough. They've gotta just shoot a little bit more consistently and just be a little. It'll better with the ball like the first half. They were like a wind up toy I mean they were playing like a hundred miles an hour and try to make stuff at it. Nothing instead of just all right advantage disadvantage. We don't everything going on. That's fine let's pull it out. Let's get it reverse. Let's get into some type of action Let's take the shot too many times teams. That are a spontaneous that radic in terms of in terms of their transition from transition to try to slow down and then dictate shot out and play with some patients purpose yards. Oh man just get better now right. I mean you're Pistons. The Great Pat Ewing Join US coach. How are you thanks for taking a few minutes with us? I'm doing what I'm doing. Well how you doing good morning. Ouch each that's his third travel of the night. Normally I get on his case.
"seth greenberg" Discussed on Courtside with Seth Greenberg
"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.

2019 NCAA championship: Virginia wins its first national title
"Like this. Virginia that seventy five seventy three next to going over time. How big is younger. My goodness. Monsters twenty seven hundred Westwood One. Aa radio network hunter coming up big twenty seven points in the Egypt game. Kyle guy had twenty four Virginia hits all twelve free. Throw attempts in the overtime period. And they come away with the title as you heard eighty five seventy seven in OT. They beat Texas Tech the eighth national title game to go to overtime the first since two thousand eight when Kansas beat Memphis the first national title game between two teams that had never previously appeared in the title game since nineteen seventy nine Magic Johnson's Michigan state team against Larry bird's. Indiana state team Virginia wins this one first title game between schools that had previously never wanted title since nineteen Ninety-one UNLV beat Duke, Tony Bennett becoming the ninth active division one coach to win a national title. I think it was a terrific game to see how these. Guys, played the one thing I said to him before in the locker room. I said you guys faced pressure that no team in the history of the game is faced will really all year. But but being down fourteen against garner web. I said, and you did not panic in that moment, and you fought, and you found a way out I said that I think has prepared you for this moment to the handle the pressure or the the intensity of national championship game. And these guys stepped up to me that was it appeared from Istambul to be a high level game. And you know, we scored eighty five that was in that setting. So good stuff. Hey, coach Bennett. Zach peerless Augusta free press there's a picture in your house. You've talked about before these three guys. Jay huff part of that twenty sixteen class. They've seen a lot of things now and their time at you've yet what are the emotions now attached to that picture? And you know, how does this change that picture in the feelings that you'll see when you see it? Yeah. When they came on the recruiting. Visit remember telling them, look, you're. The foundation has been laid by guys, you know, Joe, and Malcolm are here and all the guys went before. And we had one Sommese championships who've been to be lead eight I said, we're asking to build on that foundation. Even at that house on the hardest step. But if you're willing said, we'll take a chance at mentioned, the rocky post just I said, I want guys wanna chance to title fight and see them come in either as young men or boys and grow into men this season. And I'll mention what happened last year that that can only mature you. I don't know of anything else that would allow these guys to build a handle this situation, the playthrough stuff and to have a perspective and poise and resiliencey unless they went through something that hard, and they're very there's really good players. They don't probably get enough credit. Well, I think someone do their town. But they had something different about them collectively. I just one of our themes. I told them before the Auburn game as just bring your two fish and five loaves. It's a story in the bible. And I said it'll be enough. I said it'll it'll be enough for the masses. I said when you guys play the right way, the collectiveness of it takes over. And I've watched it, and I've stepped back, and I've seen this now seen mature through everything. And for them to do what they did, you know and how they've won. It's a great story really ofensive -ly. It seemed as if the Andre took charge there at the end you telling take charge or sometimes it seems like he's trying not. To take. That's you know, Dan regularly. Let's come in that he he I think he grew up in a way in this tournament in the second half of the Auburn game. And definitely and he was getting his shots. But he just he you saw them and that when he puts that into boy, it's he special, but no he trying to get on the ball ties. So good and our players. They understand. He's like all right. We gotta get him the ball in these situations and go to work, and you know, we did call. I'm not sure what the answer the question. We did. Call an action form to hit that three in the corner. And then one time time to great pass. But he yeah. I thought he really showed an aggressiveness that we needed. You. Need your top players to step up and make plays. And he did it on both ends you just speak to one that the poyser guy showed the overtime. And also the the previous games prepare them for that. They didn't seem either out of gas. They didn't to motion in handling the overtime. No. Well, I tell you we we had. Three Saturday, Monday games. We played Duke at home, and then we had to go to Carolina. And I I think I said this in the podium before. But I said this is how it's going to be in the tournament. And this is how we're going to prepare on Sunday. And and we did that every time we had those games, and we did it in the NCAA tournament that day in between and they knew what to expect. And I said you're built for this. You're prepared for this. Because this is what we did. And we started that process in January and that Carol do Carolina weekend. And I said just get after it, and we worked in between a lot of people's walked, actually, I don't know. What people do I just know from my experiences a coach in the Pac ten home important that day in between and how you prepare well prepare well and get after it. And so I think they they stepped in the moment they face pressure through the year through the turnament and all that stuff played into it. And that a lot goes to our strength coach, Mike Curtis. I mean, he has those guys as finely tuned machines. And and they just they work. We were smart at the end of the year with how much rest we gave them and prepare them. It's just a balance. Obviously, it it hit Tony Bennett with the national championship ninth. Active coach for the title for our current ACC coaches, Mike, shefty, ROY Williams, and Jim boeheim being the others Virginia six team to win. Multiple overtime games of the NC double A tournament in route to winning national title there. The first to do. So since era Zona in nineteen ninety seven. Cavs sixty six and six over the last two seasons. Best win percentage in division. One college basketball live crew restated Seth Greenberg, Jay Williams, and Jay Bilas, the every time in the last three games when things looked grim at the end of the game for junior late made plays. It looked grim at the end of regulation in this one when they were down to and then all of a sudden tied Rome drives, the baseline Texas Tech over helps the Audrey hunter. Who was spectacular? He wasn't good. He was spectacular twenty-seven points nine rebounds that three he hit out of the right corner is the biggest reason that Virginia's able to win the game. That was a spectacular shot. It took advantage of one of the very few defensive mistakes that Texas Tech made throughout the game. And they hung in there, and and grand fashioned to have a chance to win at the end. But Virginia made play after play that end of the overtime. They were great didn't miss a free throw were they were outstanding
UVA basketball coach Tony Bennett on win
"We want to welcome in coach Tony Bennett who last night, man. Oh, man, UVA put an absolute clinic certainly in the last fifteen minutes onto cues coach, thanks for taking the time. Your team last night. I know you've had great games over the years. But that was about as good a fifteen minutes is I've seen all year in college basketball -fensive defensively. What were your thoughts on it three or so hot? And just started clicking them in our defense. Really? You know, it kind of I guess fueled our defense. So it was important to that was a tight game. And it it opened up with like I said it's sort of perfect storm. But I was it was fun to coach that you don't always that stretch was as you guys know as well as as all of I'm not sure Danny Hannity. Those. No, no, not like that brother. No. No. No, no. What did you say to you guys at halftime because you guys were pretty loose with the ball first half. And then the second half did a great job of taking care of the ball. And you did a great job of figuring out a way to get almost matching up with zone and then getting into the middle of ninja satanic from there. What was your message? Yeah. I think we had eight turnovers and we gave up eight offense rebound. You know, y'all look at those stats that we realized like say, you know, what do we have to do to eliminate losing? I, and we gotta have no you better have an a or a minus in, you know, taking care of the ball giving up, you know, or one and done on the rebounding, and then obviously, no fast-break points. And we just have those gotta clean up and play the game. And you know, our guys have been experienced, and and that known it can go both ways it takes a little bit of a Justin the length of it and all that stuff and also sometimes that zone just to you and you're playing well, so it's a double edged sword. But thought we just at the you know, we got some guys behind zone that could catch and finish. We we missed a few in the first half. So it wasn't. I didn't like blow them up was just like listen, if we're going to be effective as what we have to do. And I thought the Andre really guarded battle because they have some really good individual one on one players and our defense. I thought took a step, you know, in that stretch where we just spread out played are gaps. But we bothered individual shots. And then as I said kept him off at lasts without a company with the kind of the the shooting and the offense of output. Really? You know was a quick turnaround. Coach it you mentioned the word blow your team up. I'd seems to me senior back in the Bahamas and watching you now this looks like a team that you don't have to blow up very often is it. No. I think you you feel the mood. I think you know, practice has to be sharp and intense and challenging, and then, you know, if you sense it as a coach in a moment, whether it's at halftime at a time out just need to. Okay. Yeah. Sometimes have to trust that. But when you have experienced players, you know, it's this level. You gotta play the possessions. And it's whether there's different ways to do it. But I think the experience and no one, you know, we're we're in a race year support for us that was a huge game for us. Now, we still have a chance at a an ACC regular season
"seth greenberg" Discussed on Courtside with Seth Greenberg
"In the reason why we are kind of keeping a little bit earlier in the week to get so much stuff. Go on over the weekend. We just couldn't wait to talk about it. Seth Greenberg is here in Connecticut. He's going to be joining me tonight. We're going to be in studio with the game's going on on ESPN big Monday. One of those games is going to be Notre Dame. Florida state doctored on Tallahassee you damn right? I am. And I woke up my drapes today. I looked out and I swear to God, I was stunned because it was sunny and nice out still like. You know? Hey, Notre Dame stinks. I didn't realize that until because I hadn't really been paying attention Pflueger went out. And they've really struggled Florida state. I did them once I like me some Florida's state Seth Florida state to me Qatar Florida state when they all of a sudden do what they did last year and show up in this week sixteen elite. Hey, don't be surprised because they got some guys when they get in passing. They're pretty good. I'm looking for what happened over the weekend, though, what happened with with Carolina. I don't know how you guys feel but I feel like North Carolina's playing at a really really high level. And I think Cam Johnson. I mean, I don't know I feel I Cam Johnson playing as well as anybody in the ACC right now, I think sometimes Chris you gotta give credit where credit is due to the other guy and the other guy is playing I think really well the other guy obviously being North Carolina. Would you agree with that South Carolina playing good play? Great. I'm not as at Duquesne. They, you know, everyone talks about signed and. Signed into Walt wardrobe malfunction was of conversation, but you know, Carolina was ready to play and Carolina beat than doing Carolina type things they'd beat them in transition. They beat him execution, and they what wall screen bat screen boom land. They went inside screen. No clump homeland Cam Johnson. I get a kick out of it. Because all of the NBA scouting gurus have cameras like the fifth pick in the draft. That dude scored like five points the other day and circus Cam Johnson shoes, fifty seven three seventy sixty points a game rebounds passes makes the right play place hard every play. I'm might not be very smart, but Carolina's really good. And if Kobe white can just play under control if Kobe white can just be a little bit better with the ball their final four good. I think Florida state is lead. Eight good, you know, carbon. Golly is absolutely. Ridiculously comes off the bench. They played ten guys. They got a bunch of dudes that can make shots. They can disrupt you defensively they have rim protection. Florida state is really good. But I really think that Carolina right now Carolina's final four good playing at a level that is really special and the seer little playing better right now. He's playing while he's playing to his strengths. He's the offense of plas running the floor. He's playing with really good energy and people that are killing him about. Oh, you know, what he's really good? He's a great freshman year. He doesn't have to be Michael Jordan freshman year. Wouldn't you guys? Go ahead question. Chris I was looking at getting ready for nasc- game..

"Been awhile since the three of us chris qatar seth greenberg and dan docket for all on at the same time we are back and we've got some interesting stuff going on first and foremost the news of the day in really the news of the week and college basketball was at michigan state but team that had been just hitting on all cylinders until the till they really got rocks last week at mack against purdue now they get another rocking when they lose josh langford one of their wingmen for the entire year he's been outbreak games it was fear that maybe would be a long term thing what is going to be a long term thing tom izzo made the announcement yesterday dan i'll start with you obviously changes michigan state moving forward but this team that's one and won impressively with a lot of guys out all year so i don't know how much it really changes them does it i don't know i think it changes them nationally i think it changes their opportunity to win a national championship always says really hard to get to the final four is those made it look early chris but when talking about sixteen and night mature kid on the have played well without him but arns hurt as well he's got a back issue that he's been dealing with mcquaid has been up they've ridership and i look and we're gonna talk to time later on today but i think this i think when your time is oh you three things are involved you want to win the big ten you want to win well actually four the big ten tournament as well and you want to get to the final four yuan win national championship and losing a guy like that slows the ladder down now they can win the cup they can win the former but i don't know that they can get involved in the ladder ultimately seth greenberg remigia i could play a twenty game league schedule i think this team has attention ward out without lankford warns being out some are look there too they're good because cash once as good as any or guarding the country nick wards playing at a high level you know i'm a big aaron hendrick guy but you can't lose you can't lose guys that score fifteenpoints game in juniors guard and be the same team you work that just the way it is they've developed that the mets great and he'll get him to play hard and compete mill we games but you know when you're competing for national championship is such a small march of era i think it's gonna be really hard for them i think they'll get through i think they'll get for the big ten but after that i think it'll be interesting to see what we're going to tom is a little bit later on in the podcasts does this loss now change and we're gonna about conference tears a little bit later on obviously michigan state is still on the top tier teams in the big ten but from a national standpoint does that knock them down a peg if you had to tell me look these teams that i think our final four teams today does that take michigan state out of that grouping i think it'd be fourteen just less than games most once at purdue which i think by the way more i watch jeopardy then you can speaker that is incredible i mean macura that place is crazy like watch neck amy other day that place was at a frenzy for two hours like this everybody revived than than than or much better varmint in the big ten immaculate does much better in the country and i've always said this i don't get you go to produce you plan a national schedule you guys get better i mean glen robinson blade before going robinson actually guys get better you play in a crazy environment and yet mad has a hard time recruiting it's it's amazing it is to me there are certain afternoons in the big ten where you're just not going to win some it used to be i that's not the case anymore but i i always said some nights at assembly hall you are not coming in there and winning some nights in breslau you are not coming in there and winning and some nights and mackey you are not coming in there and winning and i think the loss to michigan or the.
UNC to host Virginia Tech for basketball match-up
"Monday, seven o'clock. It's North Carolina. Virginia Tech Virginia handled. Virginia Tech Virginia Tech right leaving his yes. Yeah. And I'm gonna pick for junior tech. I think ever Ginny attack. This is an interesting game because it's at North Carolina. Correct that yeah. Yeah. I wanna like North Carolina and the reason because I think eventually light bulbs going on. Here's my concern about North Carolina North Carolina have anyone who makes a play for someone else. Now think about that Kobe easier for anyone Koby white still learning the play that position. He's probably Kenny Williams is he make the game easier for anyone. And like the one thing about Virginia Tech is Virginia Tech those guys make plays for each other. Are they paying touches on a bounce? And they get the ball move defense transitional important, obviously have blacks, you get some foul trouble. They're in trouble. Get what I'm going to switch up. I'm gonna go with. Yup. Know. Take on the road at center. When you went everywhere. I mean, that's you have sterling record not exactly, but I wanna Dino. So you're going Virginia Tech on Monday night. We don't I'm gonna go North Carolina at home. That's easy way out. I take that often. People can't call me a hater. If you don't pick someone steam that means you didn't pick the team you pick someone semi didn't pick him. You know, you become. Hey, you're hater no matter who you pick because somebody's going to have a loss. Or if someone say something about a team that you've watched eight thousand hours of film, and it's not what a fan base wants to hear. You know? Hey hater for me. I'm going to say I like both those teams, but I'm going to go the home team, North Carolina. It's the easiest way out possible. Just felt basically you've just built a cushion to land. That's exactly what I
"seth greenberg" Discussed on Courtside with Seth Greenberg
"Yeah, it's going to be a crazy environment. Now on the flip side. You know, I look at Auburn, and there's one they got take better care of the ball. Didn't take care of the ball against ole miss. They gotta take better care of the ball. That's really they got rebound. The defensive end. And I think the PJ Washington could be a big factor in this game watch for John Calipari to play Nick Richards, more maybe than we traveled in this game. They need a rim protector in this game. Because it is slashing which gives them. A little bit of that. And then Johnson Palley hero. I mean like. Like, you just let that do play. I mean, he's gonna make some shots committed. But you gotta let them play. But I think the spear a really good game. I'm gonna call the upset. I'm gonna call Kentucky road and winning this game. And that's hard. Because I I'm a big Harper fan. I just I thought that at times when I saw the Auburn against ole miss that they're so reliant on three point shot. And you gotta believe that Kentucky's gonna make a serious commitment to take that away the better job garden three against Georgia. I'm gonna see if they can do that to games in Virginia at Duke, you're going to be down there game day Cam, you gotta wait watch your show, you gotta wait. Okay. So lot. But I'll tell you what this just remember this one thing. I would have said that Duke has a as a great opportunity in this game. I've sit home Cameron Syam Lampson RJ Barrick radish. How did how did you MBC? Beat virginia. Well, paying attention. Virginia was missing the the most important player Andrei hotter. All right. So you use for not an excuse just saying that sometimes it's true. Sometimes teams have stinkers like I just said a moment ago and they had one without the Andrei hunt. That's good. But the ball pressure c I one of my favorite lives ball pressure by time. So with trae Jones in the game that ball pressure potentially could have bought a little bit of time for due to eliminate all that screens and the move or blocker and pushed Virginia out one step further. Which would what you in BC did without the Andrey hunter without him. You don't have that same ball pressure. So thou Virginia's gonna probably be up to get in a little bit better flow for the game. And because of that, and because of their -bility to double the post, and because they're -bility of not turning the basketball over and because of the way that they're shooting the ball and more guys that can score. Now, I'm going to say it's forty eight at last fifty one and I'm going to save that maybe Virginia gonna win a game. You have to stick around on. I'm unbelie. Eveb oil on Saturday. The most Seth Greenberg ever. I can't pick it 'cause you're gonna have to watch game day on Saturday. I wanted said was five minutes later, you're basically picking the gag. I could shake I'm not gonna let you can't change. That's true. This way I legitimately. I have so much respect for Tony about it. I love how they play. I love that. They have more guys that are contributing. I love key Clark. As a difference Baker. They're more fun. Yeah. That place is going to have scored eighty points times. I think they did it like twice less for years. That place is gonna be rocketing. One thing you got nowhere trae out. This is a funny story, you know, anytime coach K's backs against a wall of it. He's going to be some causes. He's creating they're gonna hold sign that the Duke the night before to game or he's going to start some soccer player that's gonna come in and foul someone every single time, you know, to get everyone fired up or you know, like they had to Chris Chris Paul game this going to be something. Besides just trae being out to create a cause to create a unity to try to get those guys even more of a frenzy. Right. I don't know what that is. But I was thinking basketball's emotional game. I'm big on emotion playing. But we'll see what is going to be full on game days there. They they'll tip. It's inevitably do game yet. No, no. We're just talking about Virginia don't know without. Carolina. You know, very Bill game..

"Greenberg. Dockage minus dockage, I'm Chris Qatar, Dan docket. She's trying to find his way back travel. He was at Texas AM calling the game last night travel travel. This time of year man, you're going right after this to head down to Durham, aren't you your garment they love me Dern. I'm big, you are shoe. Cavern? Jay will Bilas. And then me fact, I might be headed been, you know, honesty kinda laugh and joke around about that. But you are really liked by them. I mean, I think they like the people that respond to them in terms of the way, they heckle and harass whether it's an opposing player, whether it's opposing team, you know, like when I was in college, and they threw twinkies Dennis Scott, Dennis sky kinda reacted in a very positive manner. And so that's clever, and I think they really appreciated that when you got the boot in one of the most famous Czech Sion's. In Cameron, indoor stadium was was the biggest Hilton most underrated ejection, and we never show the video on this network. And I'm still angry to this day every time every everytime we bring it up like where is that video of you almost reacting to a fan because it's what every single one of us would have done your upset. It's the heat of the moment. You just got kicked out. You're not happy with the way things are going inside there with your team in a fan said something you almost say something back, but you hold off. I sent something under my breath. Whatever I said was not. Make this show. That's why your loved because you did what every single one of us would have done, but you didn't step over the line. You said no, I'm going to do my thing a younger Seth Greenberg would adjust deca back in your Long Beach state days or a little frisky. But so you're heading back and gained as going to be down there for this big game between do Virginia. You know? I think coach prior to the season a lot of you probably thought that the ACC goes through Charlottesville. Maybe not even do because of all the freshmen that Duke was going to rely on. I was going to be the best timidly. You did. Yeah. Surely, did I mean, you look at the Virginia team, they were adding some pieces of getting Braxton keep was huge piece because it gives them another front court athlete. The Andre one hundred was going to be healthy. Are the key Tae is a guy that was developing. And then you, you know, you got your tiger Rome. And you got called guy the piece that they added to me that after watching Virginia kind of pushed him over the top key Clark because. What key? Hey does for this team is he's actually the trae Jones of Regina. Okay. All right. He has the ability to disrupt at the point of a tack. He has the ability defensively to force you to run your off. It's a step further out. He has ability defensively to guard as little quick just Robinson last this past week and Jinya tech where Robinson's guy that gets into lane gets paint. Touches pushes it and transition key Clark has -bility guard him and keep Matt Elaine. So you don't have to over help. And then you can get to those three point shooters at Virginia Tech and contest them. So yeah, I mean, look, I I didn't realize how dominating maybe his I would be. But you know, I thought Virginia over the course of the season. I mean think about this. I saw that the other. This is a crazy stat their forty seven and three over there less fifty games forty seven and three and I'll give you a better one and only eleven teams of scored sixty points or more in one of those three losses is the Maryland ball. Amore county. That's crazy. When you think about that? It is crazy. It is crazy. And that you know, when you think about it moving forward. This is why trade Jones is so important for this game against is that trade Jones may be potentially had the ability to get up an under the basketball Cadillac you in BC did okay against Virginia and the ball pressure buys time..

There was noted everything and everybody states or the first concert at the stadium and put on a show. Unbelievable. Really cool. I saw a year ago here in bankers life, and I'm not the biggest FAM.

"I think he works so hard on his range game. He's great mid range shooter that I thought it hurt his three. So this summer it was back to making sure you can shoot a three. And then because you can shoot at three, it takes advantage of the mid range game because now pump fake and one dribble and you can shoot it. And so those three guys all had great summers, and I don't know if anybody coaches them, they should be all much improved. How about young guys? See, I've seen Kenny. Tillman you said is Abe retirement is I? I was impressed with him as as a freshman, just as he was like one of your old time because it you had. Fard. He's tough. He's strong. He rebounds the daylights out of the ball, but what he really worked on this summer is issued. Any shooting the ball, a lot better and just gives another dimension. It might give us the ability to play real big and go with him. And because he can guard smaller guys because you to forty and him and Nick play together, more Kenny gives us a chance that we can go smaller, big there, but Kenny healthy and mcquaid healthy. We really need mcquaid to shoot the ball like he can to and fairness to the. He just had some bizarre injuries, double sports hernia. You know, for I mean, he's been healthy and hopefully you'll stay healthy. And if he does, you know, I think we've got seven good veterans. There. You know, we, we've got the three juniors then we've got arns is coming off his injuries from two years ago and even from high school and. And then of course, with Kenny and mcquaid and Xavier, that's a pretty good core of now, junior senior guys, you know, which we haven't had the last couple years. We've got five freshmen that came in and I'm really. Sometimes you recruited kid and he's not as good or two wings have been really good, gay, Brown, and Aaron Henry Henry's guy, you know, tied for the highest Berg one team, very good athlete at six, five and a half, six, six, long arms. We have some length that the wings Gabe can really shoot it at six, seven and a half kind of Moore's Peterson type guy on even more energy at the same age. And maybe the best of the bunch is potentially a kidney markets. Benhamou six, ten and a half. He's got a seven, five inch wingspan, and he can really shoot the ball from three. But he came in Wayne one hundred ninety five pounds, you know, and we got him up to ten. So we're trying to put him on the Seth Greenberg diet. I don't know if you know that. Tell me about all these guys getting learning to eat healthier. I'm sure that's rolling over to your eating habits. I am. I meant. Shape. I'm healthier and working out. So so let's ranch dressing with your with your chicken fingers. Yeah, I don't use much threat what those and I eat naked chicken fingers now know fried anymore. So I'm really improving Seth. You'll be happy with me, but the guy that's gonna play is, you know, 'cause he's our backup point guard is foster lawyer, and this kid is unique years. Got some skylights in. He's only five, nine, but he can buy ten, but he can. You know, he can really shoot the ball. I mean, the average thirty seven points a game in high school. They went to state championships back to back in class as well. That's pretty good, and but he's got a high bass by q.. My big problem is those two point guards afterguard better. You know, the first front point of attack is your point guard. And so we've been working hard on that. I spent some time visit my mom and New York yesterday and. I was thinking about this whole FBI investigation and everything that's going on and how it makes our game. Look when I say FBI investigation to college basketball, what's what? What goes through your mind? I mean, you're a life forever. You've seen as thing from all sides. You know, the FBI in basketball. I guess you just kinda go back to the major gambling scandals, you know that I only read about her about, you know, and it is not very often as FBI and basketball put together, and you know, it sends me. I mean, like everything else. I, you know, you've been in a long time if had some buddies..
