I think smoking always affected my daily life because I was a closet smoker. It really sort of controlled my entire day. My boss is the one that recommended jewel. So I decided to give it a try. You don't get any of the odor of smoking. There's no ash all over your car. I would say give it a try get the flavor and satisfaction of smoking without the mess of cigarette. Asher lingering odor. Switch to Joel check out. J L dot com slash sports. If you don't smoke Vate don't start warning. This product contains nicotine nicotine is an addictive chemical. Pardoning interruptions, but I might well bond. Toby, scientists say great rhinos. It looked like a unicorn walk the earth until thirty nine thousand years ago. I'm Tony Kornheiser. You know used to ride them as a kid who Larry King at such a chief scient- unicorns giant rhinos? It's a keep shot. But we love Larry my birthday twin just head of his. He's the same day as you Larry King. Wow. I'd I'd no idea was about seven eight years older than you. Well, I'm gonna to TI boys and girls in today's episode. Kyla Murray considers the NFL Davos Sweeney considers leaving Clemson that. And the giants consider trading Madison Bumgarner, but we begin today with the Houston Texans winning their eighth straight game last night. And at one point scoring twenty seven in a row on their way to a thirty four seventeen victory over Tennessee. The Texans have now become the first team in NFL history to go from Owen three day and three, and I believe I had that will on a you. Now all in on the Texans. Tony I'm close to all the only thing that keeps me from being there. Just yet is still early in a long season is that they don't score a lot. This is like the third time this year. This this many puts no score a lot. But the Shawn Watson looks whole. He looks like he did last year when he had that great deal before the knee injury. Tom Brady, you remember that I do. And it was just like, wow, that's kid. Okay. So he has an Easter. Last Mojo, you really want. That's what he was. And he comes out of this. Okay. It looks like that again. And the defense looks really good again. They can run the ball. They've got balance if they wanted there was like eight and a half yards a carry last night. Lamar Miller Lamar Miller. Yeah. But I I would be some more off. It's like the bears. Those teams have to show consistently. They could score in this NFL. So I looked this up this morning because I remembered it I knew that they were in three and I remember thinking and saying on this air that if they went to Owen four they would fire Bill O'Brien. So I looked up. What was the fourth game in the fourth game was against the colts. It went to overtime and the cold air up three points in the overtime. They used in one thirty seven thirty four and that has led to this big change. If you asked me, a my all in my pushback is this can they beat Kansas City. Can they beat New England? The players have maybe Pittsburgh in the playoffs. So that's what I'm concerned, but they have talent on both. Sides of the ball. They got in cloudy on DVD. Do they got as you say, they got the Sean they got with swan? They've got Miller they've got as the Andre Hopkins Hopkins get matchy anywhere Seaver in the game got weapons stuff. They got score thirty five game. But they need to do that. And now the trigger man is healthy Watson looked great last. I didn't. Yes. He did. Yes. He did. No. He's by the way, we got a mention Watson outduel sort of a guy who was almost perfect. Like it shows you off the passing numbers are in the NFL people per was two of twenty three seventy another Bill Walton situation. Yeah. Come on. Yeah. Passing numbers. Don't mean junkie. Well, they actually when touchdowns garbage when get touchdowns to the college kids. Tony Cuyler Murray nearing the end of a spectacular richer junior season is pondering what the hell to do. Keep the four and a half million dollar bonus from the Oakland A's and get the spring training or play football and go full on in. Into the NFL draft. He could also play another season of football at Oklahoma asked about this conundrum Murray said quote, I feel like I can play in the NFL. But as far as giving football up as of now, that's the plan close, quote, Tony as of now baseball is the plan, but you would advise him to do what? Okay. So I'm not sure anymore. How many years removed are we from Dion Sanders and Bo Jackson twenty to thirty years that I don't think you can play both anymore. I think you have to pick one over the other. I think the players in both leagues are too good. And I don't think you can do that. They weren't good. When Jackson was running up wall. I look at him. And I look at this kid. He's five eleven in one ninety which is approximately Wilson size. And Russell Wilson is a wonderful quarterback with Super Bowl ring. And he tried baseball too. I think the longevity of in other words, if you're very good in both sports. I think the money and the long. Seventy is there more. So in baseball than in football. It's there longer in everything than football unless you're the quarterback, and you can get a bonus. So big with guaranteed money that that great baseball players make more. Here's my advice to Bryce Harper's looking at do. What you wanna do? Do. What you do what you love immature Lee. Ward say here's you can't do football player with the next ten seasons. Do not it was fun. Do what you want to do if you love to obviously, you can do all these things probably is another sport. He can do. We might be like Dave Winfield. My god. How did Winfield ever decide? What to do wasn't the drafting three sports? So so here's the problem for this particular kid, if he is a first or second round draft pick as apparently says he's going to be right? He goes right to the NFL. He will get a chance to start within a year events. You gotta go to the mind. He could be in the minors forever. Yeah. He could be there. Three years four years. He may never. Get up, but he's also represented by Scott Boers who has a pretty good track record still going to minors. I know he goes to the miners. But the presumption is he's a major league players drafted in the first round the major league draft. I think that's the longer career and the more lucrative. I think he's but you're right. You want? The Tendulkar injury is one Mack Brown has been lured by his old school North Carolina to come back and reclaim his head coaching job. Brandon sixty seven years old, and we'll be inducted into the college football hall of fame next week. And he hasn't coached in five years. We'll on what would be success for MAC Brandon North Carolina couple of ten win seasons. I think he's done that. He did it three times before when he was at Carolina. Let me let me just mention here. Tony go ahead that. North Carolina's twenty eight and twenty eight since they've ran Mack Brown out. Are you kidding? That's no. It's got to be more net. I'll be dead. No ex-. That was Texas heck's twenty eight and twenty s they ran Mack Brown these schools are so presumptuous North Carolina should never have. They let him go because he wanted to make more money. They had to North Carolina's a rich school. Yeah. And they can I'm not saying they can get to the final four. But I am saying a couple of ten win seasons to me from Brown. I'm not out of reach. So I'm gonna go with a much lower success rate than that. What I thought. Yes, I've been a sports writer for longtime as have you. We have sat on this show and talked about sports for the last eighteen years. I can tell you everybody who's ever coached basketball, North Carolina and Duke, and Kansas which are basketball schools, right? Other than Butch Davis. I really can't tell you who ever coach football. I had forgotten that Mack Brown coached football in North Carolina. Because to me Texas, just obliterated that so to me success there, and I would say the same to less miles who just went to Kansas a basketball school bowl eligible bowl eligible success. Because you tell me how often that happens a Kansas in what Carolina bowl eligible he will go out. He'll get great coaches. Tim my ear that gene Chizik who won a national championship at Auburn. Right win. One could go with him. He'll be prepared. But I don't even ways he crumb. You remember, Vince Dooley's, brother? Cosette? Carol knows knows brought us. So well, what was his name Vince was his brother's. Name name was duly coach dick Chroma named him. He did he goes Lawrence Taylor was in your nobody's in my daddy. He knew ear any chrome is who you remember? My trainer. John Atherton play with North Carolina just saying or duly whose name is these basketball schools bowl eligible is enough. And it's for him. He's one ten multiple times get the bar little higher. No good for them to hire. Success Martha's them to hire them and nobody else one would win quickly. And then we're going long on this. We've gone they need to restore some credibility with with the students. They bring in Macaire mine has had some issues the border on scandal. I don't believe that would happen under this coach. I don't the arrogance of presumption of college football fans comporting out in and around Clemson and Co's data Sweeney made it clear he ain't having it after hearing and reading his team's twenty one point win Saturday over rival. South Carolina wasn't impressive enough Sweeney set of his team's undefeated season. And number two CFP ranking twelve hundred ain't good enough. Then it's time for me to seek other places. Make sure you get that close quote, Tony. Those sound like leaving words, you you think Sweeney could be offended enough to walk. So I'm pretty sure that that Nick Sabin pitched a fit a few years ago that he wasn't appreciated enough. There were rumors that his wife was looking at housing in Texas and everybody in Alabama went crazy. You don't want to allege themselves. Well, here's what I want to say is Bill Dooley. You just came. Great bill. It could have been filled duly, and you will Vincent Bill. The point about Sweeney is this. He's not going to leave unless somebody comes after him and makes him a great offer mighty be interested in a pro team. If a protein brought him in and said, look what we got. And here's what we'll give you. He might be. He might think that every school that has asked Parisian's already they put feelers in with with Sweeney's agent now and say if he's tired because I don't know people out your paws on their face acting like more wrong in this just happened. He might even be interested. Look, he's a graduate of Alabama. Maybe in his mind he wants replaced saving. Maybe there's money wants to beat Nick Sabin. I maybe wants to go to Auburn. And maybe he wants to go to him, and he got beat in return K, but he beat him. He could go anywhere. My gone. I don't think I don't think he's going anywhere right now. I don't think is going anywhere right now. But I hope he does because he does football fans of the worst. They act all of us are bad we act like morons. How did they go at Nebraska when they decided they were going to get rid of Frankie soldi after his? Records included nine four ten to eleven to nine and three bad. Ask him how his taste the last eight years. How's it tastes bad about Texas going back to my point as spanning got rid of Mack Brown? That's why he's not going anywhere. That's why he's not going. Why don't believe on them? They're going to pledge their love to him in a way. Like you haven't seen within the next forty eight hours somewhere because he's great. He's great. He's great. And I'll be dot com is reporting that the San Francisco Giants are willing to listen to offers for their ace left-hander, Madison. Bumgarner Bumgarner, by the way, I have a Carolina tie on you do Bumgarner was a heroic figure on the giants World Series champions. But the last two years he's been injured wilbon does it make sense for the giants to trade the twenty eight year old Bumgarner, I guess that means I'm wearing Duke blue sweater. That's a little dark for Duke blue. But this is Carolina blue honor of Mack Brown. Why don't even know? On our airway. No. But I don't know. Yakin but not better. I haven't met him when that train Bumgarner. They haven't done anything giants in the last couple of years. They won in what fourteen. They got van twelve and to even years loss of the cubs in a nice a great series one of those years subsequently, but they haven't they would trade in the trade offs our consider even at his age. And I know I'm not talking about the loss of Lasi. You can get that back. We've seen people. We just saw Justin Verlander who was supposed to have lost velocity. Like plus six in years on Bumgarner refined regain is the Lhasa enough with the analytics if they're going to be billed, and you can get a lot for Bumgarner. And I think you could you consider it. Okay. I think it's the worst possible time to trade him, by the way Twenty-eight sneaky, young twenty just turned ninety. I thought he was much older than that. The worst possible time to trade him is when he's been heard for two years. You will kick yourself in the head. If he goes somewhere else in these great because you'll never get value right now, who what that now, you're never gonna get any doubt the flip side of that is Barry Zito who folded before your eyes, Tim Linda full before your eyes. Those were giants pitcher and they're familiar with that. I disagree with you. And I don't think it's just analytics, I think it's just plain math. If you're velocity goes down, if your if the rate of hard contact goes up, and if you're forcing fastball is being hit out of the park by everybody in the world. I think that's a bad trend is your example of Leander is correct. So if you've goes up, and they don't hit the ball as hard four seamer gets better. Yeah. Yeah. That's what I'm saying editing o son. No. You're too smart. Watch was baseball. And you. And the hey, great years late stage. Don't wanna sei-yung does. He say what I've said. No, jeff. You're right with Linda stuff. Hey can break true on my son own? Yup. Philip rivers and Ben Rothlisberger face each other on Sunday.

Make the switch and J L dot com slash sports. Warning, this products nicotine nicotine is an addictive chemical. It's time for the great argument will bond says a bunch of stuff and then I win. What's I toss up brighter future Marquel? Foltz or Blake Bortles. Honestly, neither to me at the moment. Seems to have a bright jus- Blake Bortles has is in his fifth season. All as a starter. When you bench guy that deep in his career, you're saying you don't want him anymore. I don't know what he's got Marquel. Full. Appears to me is only twenty he appears to me to have both physical and probably psychological problems right now in getting out onto a basketball court. But if he gets away from Philadelphia, I think he has a better chance of being better than Bortles though. I want us to be more careful. He lives here where we have list years we've rooted for him, but the answers Blake Bortles because it doesn't matter about his fifth year. He can hold if he can hold a clipboard and walk. He could be rough for ten more years we have future. Josh mccown. Your future is making millions of dollars. Arms play you something. Young.

This year has thrown more touchdown passes and fewer interceptions than Rothlisberger and his career thirty nine and nineteen in December quotas stupid. It's set relevant numbers.

Levin waves of any ends up down one taking a three point shot barely grazes the rim. If he'd gotten to pick her to any gets to the mic there down one they need. How many don't eat thrown Hoiberg is the Levin who you've never seen place. He left. Minnesota is one of the best drivers and finishes at the rim. I didn't know anything. The extra defender comes when you screen. You don't want to have to go around extra. How is their shoddy? Go that's not the point that is the best time where where it was talking about. And that was going to free him that degree point Zach LeVine on his own without a screen. Can't get to the basket. Did he this? I that's his fault. Did he, but that's not the screen arm back in Hoy run? Next is your gonna toss up bigger deal in golf last week's the match or this week's hero world challenge. The phil. Tiger thing wasn't great. They didn't play great golf. But it always had the potential for. Was a great event a world challenge is a tournament in the Bahamas for eighteen people. Most of whom will have hangovers every single day. Nobody cares about this tournament the Phil. And Phil's not even in it. The Phil tiger circumstance was far greater participation.
