"You talk about just a death. I felt that especially when when we got the news that PJ Tucker, you know landed in Milwaukee. Yep. Yep. I guess you think about like what that Edition does to that team-first what it would do to the Celtics. And and you see I just think that the Celtics would be counting on PJ Tucker a lot more than the Bucks would write a key is he's another piece to a very solid veteran, you know, whether whether he's starting or the bench solid frontcourt just to sell a team where like I think that if itself is required required PJ Tucker, they just be expecting a lot more like he's like two or three rungs. I feel like lower on a chart in Milwaukee. Then you would be in Boston was just shows the difference between, you know, a contender a legitimate Contender and kind of I mean a pretender, I think at this point yes bank and you mean you just look at all you look at the Celtics performance against League teams around the league and I think that magnifies a clear this year their own eight against top five teams. That's um, and they've been competitive in those games. But if you look at them and the whole especially these last two games the Jazz, sorry, sorry went against what was again. So the top five teams in the league right now. So Lakers dead, Jazz Nets Sixers and I'm forgetting one more whoever's in that cuz I have the one we went against Milwaukee. Yeah, so they're in the top Phoenix is the page. Yeah. So because the other ones they lost out there. So those are like, hey that's surprising that also the top five teams are now first of all, but second of all you look at and again, it's a lot of those games were they were super shorthanded. You really can't, you know gauge fully but in these last against the the Nets and the Jazz, like what was the biggest difference in those games? Hey the Celtics fell apart down the stretch in the fourth in the near the worst fourth-quarter team in the league..

Hawkeyes can't back up their lofty ranking, suffer humbling loss to Indiana
"Leg. I think we might need to revisit. The word realistic. The definition is as follows. Having were showing a sensible and practical idea of what can be achieved or expected. I bring this up because on wednesdays. Podcast i asked you if you believed indiana had a realistic chance to win at iowa on thursday night you said no. I said no. Just didn't seem like a sensible or practical idea of what can be achieved or expected and for at least three reasons. One iowa is clearly better than indiana in the season to iowa would have the best player on the court. In the form of luca garza an three iowa was inside carver. Hawkeye arena where it inner with a nine and record. Obviously you know what happened next score indiana iowa sixty nine not n- is roy j carver famed industrialists rolling over in his grave. Norlander what was it like for you to watch and unrealistic thing. Become a reality late thursday night. Miriam webster defines the word regret as sorrow aroused by circumstances beyond one's control or power to repair. That game was out of my control. It was out of your control of conduct or an event giving rise to regret undesirable unwelcome. And as that game played out and as it got into the second half. I thought this is interesting. This is look this indiana getting a good win. I was really going to take this loss all right. You know what this is. This'll be something good to talk about on the. Oh wait a second. What did we say at the end of the last podcast. We said too much did we. Did we call it a little too far. Yeah did i have someone tweet at me. A link to the definition of realistic. You bet your ass. I did congrats indiana fans although you might be super conflicted this morning here because obviously you want your team to do well. Obviously a decent portion of you just love basking self loathing when archie miller doesn't performance walls coaches. You'd like you got a good win here. This is the kind of win. That's gonna get you into the ncaa tournament. like i. i think the hoosiers someway somehow they're going to be in that incident tournaments if it's because of a win like this. Are you suggesting that was a cpap win was well. They're not maybe it was. How about a vaulting win. They might not have been in prior to this game. Get the win vaulted. And that's even better than the seat. Bump vault vault launch it right there like a catapult right over great job i indiana i gotta figure this is probably a top five win of the season considering iowa's a top five team in the metrics. It is a game on the road again even though it's not a true true wrote environment. It's still a so. This is one of the five wins and think anyone has had the season and india. It wasn't like the squeaked it out they got it done. They beat an iowa team that i checked late last night. I'll bring up right now. Yes i was still third at ken palm as we report this podcast on friday morning and the win by twelve so a wonderful job. Clearly you know. That's the kind of game if i speak to. The hawk is real quick. And you're right. I actually have in my notes cover. Hawkeye's rolling over in his nest. Not his grave. He's really covering his nest That defense there is obviously problematic for iowa. That's the that's the kind of game. Where whether you're a fan. Or just a bit of a skeptic of the hawkeyes early this is why i don't know if i can take them to get to the final four. I still can get there. It was just a disappointing performance. What you see on on thursday night and what was your primary take away. Okay let me tell you. I experienced this indiana comeback. So obviously we we. We have a new president now and the country has been an interesting place to live in recent weeks and a guy with the high school with who was like a genuinely good guy but we see the in completely different ways In probably every election of our our lives. I've voted one way. And he has voted another and so he reached out to me and he said hey. Listen i i want to try to better understand like i keep hearing people say you know you need to listen to other people and i want to try to understand in an and you can see if you would it. Be okay if i reached out to you every once in a while and say. Hey well what do you think about this. What do you think about that and he. Here's what i think about this. And what am i missing. And i thought it was like a sweet gesture and so i said sure. Of course i'd be happy to talk gone. Eleven biden voters chatty to you like that by the role of the roles are reversed.

Notre Dame Ranks in Top 5 College Football Programs
"I watched the clips of brian. Kelly press conference and he looked like he was exact exasperated. And i don't know if you're a notre dame fan. How do you feel about this. Because he's i mean he's a really really good coach. We do these top. Twenty five lists every year and brian. Kelly definitely should be in the top five and they have really good players. But i don't know and he's right alabama's done this to almost everybody. They actually didn't do it. The florida but you know was there were still you know it's like we'll see if ohio state gets closer. So let's let's fill people in on the quotes if they didn't see them after the game not surprisingly. Maybe he was surprised. I don't know he was asked a lot about. How does the here how frustrating the question was how frustrated is. How frustrating is it to get to a playoff again lose by this margin the margin not the issue. Losing his losing. I don't know really. What the inferences. This football team battled and they made more plays they being alabama made a few more. Plays on the perimeter. I'm not sure really what the question is when you lose football games you know. There's a few more plays jeff to make. We had the opportunity. You watch the game. I watched the game So everybody needs to continue to carry this narrative that not not good enough. Look at the scores of the games. The albums played all year. And i think when you start changing the narrative little bit then somebody asks as you look at it. You feel like the program has gotten a lot closer. What's the next step. You feel like you guys could take need to take i. I don't really wanna continue to go down this path. We're going to keep getting here okay. And we're gonna keep banging at it and you guys watched the game in you. They had the college football player of the year. Who made some dynamic place. We battled. We were right there. So we're going to keep getting back here. And i'm sorry i don't like it or the national media doesn't like it but we're going to go back to work we're gonna keep recruiting. We're going to put ourselves back in this position again I mean i know. He's got to defend the program. And you know what's he going to say like. Oh yeah we're we're we've got a ways to go But you're right like if you're ordering fan who who still believes deep down the program. That should win the national championship. How do you feel about your coach. Basically coming on saying he's basically trying to say yeah. We don't have a devante smith. We don't have nausea harris. But we were good enough that like if we caught them on the day we could one maybe is that is that we took from it. Yeah and i'm thinking about it. It's like this notre dame team. And i would say it from the last from the jalen smith Ronnie stanley era up. So whatever it is i guess. Maybe it's the last five or six years they've had like some special athletes right. I mean ronnie stanley elite talent offensive lineman jalen field. Jalen fields. Jalen was is home. Ultra talented linebacker. They've had Kyle hamilton is as athletic as any any safety. The country i mean they have some of these guys will fuller was as fast and dynamic as any receiver just about. I mean it's not like they haven't kyran williams of big time running back they just don't have quite enough of them right. I mean like they don't have any of them. It's not like you know. The the line from joey galloway said like northwestern's a bunch of reese davis's you know the inference there is like notre dame has has some guys who would play anywhere and they've always had a bunch of good offensive linemen. They have good tight ends. I don't think they're light years away from having like a team that could win a national title. I mean they're they're a top five team. It's just you know. I don't know like like maybe this is a better way to frame it. Like if they were playing ohio state they have somehow gotten by alabama. I mean Let's take alabama out of the equation if they were playing ohio state and somehow it was a two three game. Let's say let's say that it was just a playoff game but it wasn't. You know as the i. I could see Notre dame beating ohio state. Even after what. I just saw from ohio state alpha. If justin feels plays away did tonight. I couldn't but like i don't think it's out of the realm of possibility like i think there are. You know i watched their. I think notre dame's better team than georgia. I think not notre dame honesty's a better team than florida now. It's easy to say that after you've seen some of these teams get exposed some but lake and those teams. Those teams have played with alabama on a given night right. So i just don't think they have as much margin for error right

"I'm curious if they can catch it over next year, And I mean could they could this time next recruit time about them in the chief's one A and one b sort of thing where it's like a toss up to go to the Super Bowl. It's a good question, because this year we have on the show that you're still in. The Chiefs are going to go back to the Super Bowl. So the bills are like probably on that second level. Can they continue to elevate to get to that, you know, number one level and let's be real this year. For the most part, this regular season has gone as perfect as the bills as anyone could have imagined it going for the bills. They didn't just back their way into the playoffs and when this division because of the product of the division They have definitively showed you that they're the best team in this division. And right now, the second best team in the ass see? So after a year of Big time success because last year they were success and they took that next step.

And do we view Lamar Jackson is a Super Bowl winning quarterback or Super Bowl type of winning quarterback next year. I'll still say that's the Browns. I think the Browns went on Sunday they get in the postseason with the Steelers rested everyone. And the Browns make it back to back successful years as well.

"You are my top five teams in the National Football League. These the five teams, I think are the best teams in the NFL. This is just my opinion number One is Kansas City. Number two is the Rams. Number three is the Saints number four. His Buffalo on number five is Green Bay. That's my opinion. You may agree or disagree at the end of the day. What the hell difference does it make? But imagine if we decided we're going to see the play offs based on my opinion. Even I wouldn't think that was a good idea because what the hell does my opinion matter? So these people went into a room yesterday just decided who they like. Because there is zero logical sense behind any of the decisions they made. None of it can be defended. If you watched Gary Barton with Reese Davis after the announcement was made yesterday. He might as well have just said, You know what? Reese? This is who we like. We just think Florida's good Yeah, they played, they lost most of them. They shouldn't have to issue happens. We still think they're better than these other teams, and our opinion is the only thing they asked us for. Because there is a flaw in the entire system, which is that these people are asked. They're tasked with choosing the four best teams in the country. When it is obviously The stupidest way to do something. I've been screaming this since the first year of Mike and Mike that when it comes to March madness, and now it applies to this. You have to pick the most deserving teams because that could be based on something rather than just people's opinion. We're just taking people's opinion now and choosing the teams. They're going to play for the championship based on and we think they're good. I look at the end of the day. They might as well just said this. We just think Florida's better than Cincinnati. We don't need to justify it. It's not our job to justify it. It's our job to tell you what we think So I don't blame them from that respect, because that really is the only job they've been given to do. So it just shows you that That's where the floor is in all of this. People are complaining about what's going on at the very top. I'm talking about what's going on down at the bottom. That was a school like Cincinnati, not playing get moved down the list. When Ohio State has played five games and every budge, they never move. Why? Because the committee thinks they're better. Again. I don't have a problem with that. I think so too. Of Ohio State Plate Cincinnati right now in a neutral field, Ohio State with a double digit favorite. So if that's the whole criteria, fine, But then what are we going through the exercise? At some point, you might as well just put them out there on the 50 yard line, leading to the bench Press. It's become like the combine. Yesterday was the day this whole thing officially became figure skating. Just let them play and then let these 13 people write down little score over. The Russian judge says he got a six point out. We're done here. Gymnastics. Mary Lou written whoever that more appropriate It is a very dated reference, isn't it? Mary Lou Retton's a very long time ago. You know what I'm saying? That last night is the night that it more than any other time. It just became ridiculous because none of it is defensible. You can't defend practically anything they did yesterday. Did like one thing that Kirk Herbstreit said. I watched that entire program last night on ESPN, and there was something Herbie said that I really like is when people are talking about a high state, look, Herbie's in a no win situation because anything he says about allow state people. Some people are going to suggest that he's just taking up for them because he went there and played for them. Obviously. That Hey, I know him well enough to know that isn't what he does. I think at times he bends over backwards not to, but more to the point. What he said, is 1000% right? So the idea that Ohio State is getting treatment that no one else would get. He's not have few games they've played Is actually not right. As Herbie points out, there are two other programs that would get the same exact treatment. I don't want to say it's a different set of rules, but it's a different perception based on the equity that Alabama Nick's Eben With Urban Meyer and now Ryan Days down in Ohio State with Davos. Sweeney has created a Clemson because Ohio State was one a note and the AP had them at number three in the country, So there's a consensus that they're very elite team. It just comes down to the amount of games. But if Clemson and Alabama had that same scenario, they would also be getting that benefit 100%, right. Herbie is 100% right in saying that and no one else would and part of that. Used the equity that they've built up the credibility and reputation. Their programs have built up. Does that make sense? Yes. Is it the way they should choose who gets to play for the championship? Obviously not. There's nothing to do with the kids who were out there this year, busting their behinds in a pandemic to play. But I get it. I understand that they're doing it..

"Stephen smith welcome back from touchdown. Alabama stephen amit always good to see you and great to have you on the program. So it's the week of the iron bowl you've been high on the tide. Since the first time we talked during the summer. let's start with mag jones because you told us. He was different than that was before the public. In the heisman voters fell in love with him. Absolutely i mean. The young man has been battle tested poise and career. I remember him in the us. Freshmen in two thousand seventeen with the scout team out there throwing bombs and of course coach saban told him stop throwing the ball deep all the time. King looks at cope sabres coach. Tell your defense a check me there so you got a guy with that type about and that type of confidence even check his own coach. Nick sabin that you got yourself a quarterback that can really do some special things. So i knew from mack. Jones the freshman that he was poised to this moment but also seeing the growth that he's made targeted stephen m. smith who stephen m. seems like every every aspect of alabama has gotten better the one that has surprised when people is the is the defense. Because after the ole miss game i i wasn't sure that p golden should be buying green bananas. But what's happened on that side of the ball. The main thing is coke. Sabin and pete goading have done a great job. Simplifying things on times player stink too much. You think about my job and is my teammate. Doing his job. It's the guy in front of me. The guy behind me the guy next to me doing their job. And when you're thinking about so many things of your job is and training your is to be district where confusion comes in so nick. Saban has always been one to say. Do your job and the rest will take care of itself. So she and goading been a great june above of simplifying. The game plan players have done their job. You're seeing more pressure on defense guys stopping the run better. More turnovers created a the big thing here. Paul is essentially omits game. You've looked eleven. Shutout quarters football alabama including a complete game shutout of mississippi state and the team is getting off the theater on third down so a better job of simplifying the game plan and players. You know being concerned about doing their job correctly. It's interesting. we haven't really heard much in the aftermath of jason water when he went down some of the pundits. I remember somebody. Espn said alabama was done. They had no chance of winning the national championship. How has that been dealt with on the team. Because it doesn't seem like and i realized alabama has played a top five team Yet they will seem like they've done quite well without him. I remember a conversation. I had with john. Michie paul about you know. How do you feel. Avoid behind by waddell. He's a one type player. Barry explosive guy would. He got hurt against the volunteers. You heard coach. Sabe say you know. I hurt for college football. Not the fact that saving hearts for alabama. I'm sure he pretty much does but he hurts for college. Football due to people enjoy seeing james waddell on the field. He's fast he's a bottle he's gone. He's energetic he's explosive. He's highly entertaining. Obama has found ways to work. Around this. you've seen slade. Boden return be on kickoffs. Of course he got a twisted ankle against kentucky alabama monitoring jam all week and practice. He should be able to go this week. But we'll see what happens We have seen devante. Smith retiring ponts against kentucky patrick satanic. A second has also field in that role a little bit so save has put he and different guys and that special teams role to try to you know. Fill that void but it's worked out for the most part. It is difficult trying to find that guy that can do know what j. waddell does

"top five teams" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"You are the Bears a top five team in the NFC. After Listen Mike Tannenbaum, I'm excited to watch. The Chargers tonight against the New Orleans Saints. All of these air scan reports for us as bears fans to see what's next. If the Saints lose tonight to the Chargers. All of a sudden, you're like, hold on a second. Who is the team other than Seattle that you go? Okay, Green Day. Give it to Seattle and Green Bay are in a class by themselves. Today it's tier one Green Bay goes to Tampa and loses on Sunday different story that they were discussion that we have sure. But as of today Have you tell me the saints go out tonight? 47 7 Later they just destroy the Chargers. Okay, I'll give you that. But if they don't look good tonight. They don't. They may even win but squeak by. They were like, Wow, Freeze looks terrible. You tell me another team decided to. I gave the Seattle Green Bay that the Bears absolutely cannot play with you. I would say that the bears at this point time through the first five games, I would probably put them at five. And you know what? I hear you're putting ahead of them. Take a look at the standings, my friend because we mentioned Seattle again. Seattle, I think is going to be the best team in the NFL before it's all squared away. So Seattle's there Packers air there and two I'm taking the NFC East out of the equation. Yeah, totally right. So then we look at the Rams, the Buccaneers and the Bears. So I'm looking at it in the Buccaneers. If they were healthy, maybe they beat the bears. Maybe they don't. But they did not beat the Bears. So you still give Tom Brady benefit the doubt I would say that would be my top five. In the old hood scale. You see Danny, How would you do it? Who's top five teams in the NFC where you're putting your bear? It's interesting. All right, So Seattle's definitely the top team in the NFC, right? I think we're the question for me becomes, are the bears better than the Rams? So find the NFC. It's definitely the Seahawks. It's definitely the Packers. It's probably Besides, it's the NFC East is awash. It's definitely the Seahawks. It's definitely the Packers. I think the Buccaneers are better than the Bear's. The question for me comes are the Bears fourth or fifth? Are they better than the Rams or not? I think right now the Rams are just slightly better. Although Jared Golf's not a great quarterback, I think he's better than Nick Foles and Mitch Robiskie. Their defense is just a good as the Bears defense. So for me, I'm putting the Rams forth the Bears fifth But they are top five NFC team. Sure, but that's not what I thought when the season started, correct. We question even with the schedule because you just don't know you don't know what kind of offense you have coming off of the 18 8 season. And we saw how I looked at the beginning, and it's still not right. It's still not right. And as I told you last week is my new mantra, whatever, Nagy thinks, because now he's going to do it his way. The old BU method Where you and I believe that they should be able to have some semblance of a running game along with the past. That's not how he sees things. And so he's gonna do it his way. Win or lose. Speaking of that here is Matt Meggie on abandoning the run. Well, yeah, I would say, Well, you can't. You've got to be able to run the football. You know, itjust and we believe it or not, I mean, there's there's sometimes reality and passes in their throat. So it might look in the in the scorecard that it's a past but there really wrong calls in there with with Europeans or some stuff you do and things we have on there so, but we called You know, we're trying to stay as patient as we can. In a situation I thought once we got behind 13, nothing we had. We had to do a little bit more in the past game, and we did. We were more effective that way. The last two weeks. I've said it over and over these these two teams will face on the front line linebackers. They're They're really good. That's not to take anything away from other teams that we played us. Just simple truth. These two fronts we played the last two weeks. That's what they are so, but it's a challenge, so we're not going to abandon around by any means. We've got to stay. We got to stay balanced, but at the same time, none of that matters If you're not details, so we better be detailed. Guys that's not balanced, though 10 10 carries I'm not looking at the box score believes 10 carries for Montgomery. That's not that's not balanced. You definitely want to throw the football more. At least that's how he sees it. It's not balanced for him. Capital Never be 50 50. I'll be really barely 64. Does He also look at it and go guys? I see what front they're playing. That's why we didn't run there. When I get the look, I want I will run. No, it's fine. Whatever he thinks. This wind. Everything's as long as it's a W at the end of the day, that's fine. I just know that even the best teams that we watching the NFL still have a semblance of a run game, and either he doesn't think Montgomery is special. Or he just wants to do it his way by throwing the football hell of a lot more and whatever helps the Bears win. That's fine. He also addressed Remember the second down, throw on the game winning drive where people are and what you're doing. What you run the ball there. Naggy. We wanted to stay aggressive there at the end. Try Teo. You know we were going back and forth. There's a situation there where we can get into a mode. Where if you you know if you if you break a tackle on slant round her hand off whatever. Where there are around you, no timeouts and you could feel the wind. That's always a you know, It's not a situation to be in, but we were trying to stay aggressive and then they're just to get some more yards to be able to make that field goal. There you go. Trying to be aggressive, okay, more more coaches would definitely would have made sure there was less time on the clock for Tom Brady to come back in that game. If Brady has to have a senior moment, who knows what happens with that game? Who knows Because it's Tom Brady. Out of all the old quarterbacks. We see. Tom Brady still has it. So has a sip on the fastball. He does. I'll tell you what. I sat there and watched the Colts yesterday. Philip Rivers stinks. Well, that's why the loss hurts more..

I've got flaws and those laws might be exposed as early as this week but as for right now they haven't yet been exposed and their number one number two Oklahoma. number three Auburn. number four. they are a top five team they are number four I have a number for tapes that even though they have strong and you have them above Georgia and LSU yes definitely LSU I I think L. issue has more flaws in the rest of the teams are competing with their defense has really struggled their office of why the running game is not championship level what they are is a terrific quarterback in a great bunch of wide receivers that's enough to win you a lot of games but against the elite teams it's not enough so I do not have them in the top six everybody talked about Ellis used on defense Trevor they did dell bit in all the big bodies on defensive line in line so why is the defense the problem now that's that's funny I think part residue which is that a part of it has to do with guys that they expected to rise up to replace some of the NFL guys haven't yet perform to that level keep this in mind Texas really good he really saw excellent quarterback couple really good receivers Texas was playing with a bunch of new offense of linemen and only one healthy running back their backup running back was their third string quarterback and yet Texas live up issues defense that should not happen right and I see that continuing to help and Clemson despite that performs gives you and see you still see it on tape I do and I think it's because I see Clemson better able to get past their flaws there's some of the other teams because right now Clinton's biggest flaws that their their quarterback Trevor Lawrence's of playing like the all world best college quarterbacks is John Elway that they put on his shoulders coming into this season he is a quarterback who needs to adjust to the way depresses are adjusting to him that's normal so far he has not done that in stellar fashion but I think he's got the ability to do it their defense is still disruptive I think you get after you in a lot of ways they're off it still is very very good at the quarterback locks into place have you ever get to meet sweats. all the time. we had a barbeque last night outing all the guys in the show in my Kahler talks but he got to meet with I've never had the meets with no actually I've I've I've sweat because I desire to meet I haven't had I haven't sweat because I needed me. all right good share your stories Trevor told us he has a story this year about a falling out with a very popular. steak chain in the United States we're talking about this a minute ago at noon on the guys were you know to me it's like okay it's it's I'm a big guy I don't realize how big idea okay until I see myself in pictures with other people I don't like. a massive it's like so I was in this state chain with my fiance this couple years gonna answers you my girlfriend that she was starving to death she was cranky and starving so there's nobody else in the restaurant and so outcomes waitress I say look really really hungry this get the bread out as quickly as we can water as quickly as we can go from there so. three minutes six minutes nine minutes you know ten minutes go by and nothing's there so she finally comes out with some water my could you please bring out some breath right then she's only I'll do that he was five minutes later there's no breath so now we're fifteen minutes into it okay my girlfriend is looking at me like I'm some sort of evil boyfriend right and so I got up and I walked into the kitchen. I walked into the kitchen now I know there's a lot to do that that will okay I'll make a Trevor size hole whatever doors there the thing is I am always very careful when I do something like that and I will from time to time that I do not become physically threatening. okay so what I'll do is I will I will rise up and wow big and strong and I'm in your space and I'll look out for me I don't do that because that is totally illegal that it will be totally unethical so I walked in the kitchen I saw all the waitresses and and wait staff in there have been a great party they were much in on roles they were telling jokes and laughter while my girlfriend's out there starving after that and so I walked in the kitchen saw that got even madder took a step back but in the kitchen the back away from them and I just said this I said we're the bread this was an algebra literal all get the bridges point out the bread for me and so this bridge others I walked over there I got the bread I walked out right so outcomes waitress apologize profusely and I order of prime rib this is where they got their revenge. if it wasn't completely raw it was almost completely wrong I mean raw they brought me wrong I think they tried to poison me with salmonella on this broad prime rib and I was just being nice thinking oh well Gee the the waitress didn't cook at the chef probably got it wrong and so we sent it back you got something else but then as I was driving rows they can now no they did and that was retaliation because I called them out for their poor service to start way have all the leverage until you're done eating yeah and that's what I always aware of this bit factor well listen I actually I actually I sent the pizza back at the hotel since last week the pizza place because the order was wrong and I was to have it so I just told the very person look I'm sorry that is not your fault is the wrong order so I just don't trust it send it back and then I realized I could never order pizza from that place ever again listen have you ever listen to the wheel came show yeah you heard my opinions my wife does all take out orders for us. I haven't had a take out order in years like they you order for us that person may not be a big. the is no matter how big you are not affect even if you're really big you're more likely to get retaliated on when we are not look and so on so we got to be careful all right we're down to about a minute just tell me your biggest games the weekend our Ohio state Michigan state and Florida operas focus on the SEC game and just tell me this is your boys your team is all over with a freshman quarterback in the whole able hold up against real opponents and are you having is too I'm very well aware the Auburn is a team that is growing their defenses championship level right now. but they haven't faced a defense like they're gonna face against war and their freshman quarterback bone X. has been growing and getting better and I think that's really important because he is the key to that team if he is able to grow. as the season rolls along they have the ability not just to to win the SEC west but the when the conference I go to the playoff I mean I really really they're that good if the freshman quarterback can get going Ohio state thing about them is that they I think of the best in the country right now but I don't know that their offense is what it will be because they have a very narrow slice of the playbook in progestin feels that the thing is the next game that they play is Michigan state add this defense will take advantage of every bit of the narrow slice that he's been asked to do when he's on a well but as time goes on he'll have to learn more because he will have to just candy I don't know so far he hasn't had too alright Trevor Matt H.

LSU Tigers: Top 5 team in the US?
"Want to ask you about a couple of schools that are ranked high and I know you've been to What's your what's your gauge which level of <hes> of expectation for L._S._U.? I think they should be one of the five best teams in the country. If you look at now that they don't have a perfect you know depth chart right now. They are big question marks on the offensive line at least at right tackle but I think the way Joe Borough finished I I think the arrival of Joe Brady from the saints as a passing and coordinator and the adjustments they've made their I think that fits everything well they should be you know really good even though they lose devon white who was a great player in the middle of the defense <hes> they're really talented in the secondary and I think they're pretty deep upfront upfront. <hes> they get caleb on chase on back. He was a player that the guys inside that program raved about until he got hurt last year. I think this is a a team that you know when I look at it. I think there's there's two games that I think will be real struggles for them. They have a game early on at Texas. Which is which is on the road and Tom? Herman has played exceedingly well. He's got his way exceeding well in that kind of environment where it's a heavyweight opponent and everything's right that seems like they are able to to rise up and play while the other one certainly is Alabama for a variety of reasons. They do not match up well I. I think I think quite honestly that L._S._U.. Team has been in its own head. <hes> you know how they can blow a good talented Georgia team completely louis out of the building the way they did beat them by twenty points and dominate them and then just look completely flat <hes> against Alabama they have gotta find a way to to kind of rally the way they do against a lot of other you know big opponents find a way to just really play a lot more free and and like like they do against other people against Alabama because unless they do that I think they may be a top five team but they're not going to be able to get to where they need to go and that's the play offs just because because <hes> you know because it just seems like that is something that they cannot mentally Concha talking to Bruce Feldman great to have him
"top five teams" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"And, you know, the one other thing that I took into consideration with having Georgia at number five, they won't have to face any of last year's four best defenses from the SEC that being Alabama LSU, Mississippi State, and themselves. So the scheduled kind of helped them out, I think I ended up dumping them up a few spots because of that. Yeah. There's a lot of there's a lot of buzz about auburn's defense, not offense defense of that is let us late in the year by then they may have some savage. So as you sort all this out, it sounds like college football in twenty nineteen is going to look pretty much like it did in twenty eighteen. Yeah. I mean four of the top five teams that I have were, you know, four of the top five teams most of last season, the only kind of wild cards that I have sort of near the top of the list, or Houston, which, you know, dare king when he was healthy was just unreal. Think they scored forty points and ten of his eleven games. And obviously the AFC doesn't have much of a defensive force to slow him down if he's able to fully recover from that tort meniscus, and then Oregon, Justin Herber coming back, probably going to be, you know, number one on a lot of draft boards for the twenty twenty class surprise a lot of people by coming back. So I think they should improve in Mario Cristobal second season. It's not gonna be chip Kelly, Oregon, but it should be one of the better offenses at the country.

"Twenty one percent chance to win the west. And then you've got an Auburn coming in at five percent each and then Mississippi State at at four percent, and I'll ask this question later on in the show. But I think it's an interesting thought as we look at this have have we gotten to a point now where we can almost say that there's balance in the SEC, I realized that everyone still believes that Alabama's the best team and that Georgia's right up there with Alabama, and they have been for a couple years. But I think maybe what we're starting to see is a little depth behind those teams where maybe the gap between them and the rest of the division isn't as big as it's been there. People that think that you know, LSU is a legit top five team of Florida. Some people think is a legit at least top ten team. And if that's the case, maybe we're finally getting to a point where these these conference races are division races might not be as much of a foregone conclusion as they've felt in the past. And certainly that's something that we'll talk a lot more about as we get into the summer and beyond last thing here from FBI as we open up the show projected wins for each team for this season. Now, this is including a the possibility for some of these teams of getting into the SEC championship game. And so these numbers aren't exact I've rounded them when I say half, it's simply because over the course of all these simulations sometimes they'll win seven games sometimes the win eight games, and it's right around in between. So I might say seven and a half. But I'm well aware. Aware you don't have to call enter tweet and let me know that you can't win half a game. All right here. We go. Projected wins. Alabama eleven Georgia ten and this is in the the regular season LSU nine and a half, Florida, eight Missouri. Eight Mississippi State, Auburn, Tennessee and Texas am all at seven and a half Kentucky seven, South Carolina. Six ole miss six vandy five Arkansas five what's interesting to me. There is looking at South Carolina at six wins. F B I believes the South Carolina is like a French top twenty team is far as how good they are the schedule. However is a completely different matter FBI rate, South Carolina, schedule as the most difficult and all of college football, obviously, they're hosting both Clemson and Alabama. And then have some very difficult road games in the conference. In addition to that AM's got a killer schedule to L A and M. I believe is ranked the second toughest schedule and am plays. All. Of the top four teams and FBI three of them on the road. So it's just a brutal year for teams in the SEC, especially if you're not named Alabama or Georgia and don't have more talent than everyone else all in all F, B I. And we said this back in February believes that the SEC has ten of the top twenty teams in college football, people can certainly dispute that and I'm sure some of you will and that's fine. But that's kind of the way we see it as we go into the seasons. If you have any comments on that or anything else than feel free to give us a call as always eight five five to four two seven two eight five eight five.

"And I mean, it was it was weird how out of sorts that were in the defensively. Michigan state wasn't where it needed to be. So it's been a little bit funky. Frankly, see MSU turn into this. Now, it gets a home giving. Minnesota get right on Saturday. But then it's gonna turn around and a week from today. It'll have a game at Wisconsin. So we'll see where it goes from here. But I was weigh in on Michigan state being a top five team. In college basketball, didn't foresee really any circumstance parish, which this team will lose three straight. And yet here it has it's done just that. And now the big ten which rates a strongest in college basketball, suddenly has drama because Michigan and produced top the league standings, which just two losses and the Michigan tied in the loss column with Wisconsin. And Maryland is the other team that is within shouting distance. I think the easy thing to do is point to the loss of Josh Lankford and say this this this is what happens when you lose somebody who was averaging fifteen points per game. Somebody who was clearly one of your best stories, you know, you sort of explain away. Michigan state's recent troubles the same way. You would explain away. Keynes's his recent troubles. They were triggered undeniable. Ably by the loss of your Doke as a book. But here's the difference. Keynes's has been like playing five hundred basketball since it lost Doke. They've never been good with him. They have some good wins with. I mean, they've never been good without him. They've got some good wins without him. But they've been wildly inconsistent up and down without him. Michigan state went Walsh Lankford the first game. They played without him was January second it was against northwestern. They went Eighty-one fifty five then they play Ohio State when Ohio State was ranked in the top fifteen. They went eighty six seventy seven and they played Purdue Purdue team that's now in the top twenty five beat of seventy seven fifty nine and they go to Penn State win seventy one fifty six go to Nebraska when Brassica was healthy beat Nebraska, seventy sixty four then they get Maryland at home beat him sixty nine forty five another double digit win. Then they get Iowa at Iowa that's Iowa team. That's good. They go and beat them by fifteen points on the road. They started seven oh without Josh link for so. I don't think it's a simple as they lost fifteen point per game score. What do you want to do because they beat at least at the time? When the game was played one two three top twenty teams. Without Josh Langford before they went on this three game losing streak with Josh lane for. So I do think it's a little more difficult to to pinpoint Michigan state's problems than it is some other teams that their problems are clearly tied to to injuries that they've endured. Yeah. I do. To a certain extent. But I also don't love Michigan state's chances in March to win six games in a row without Lankford. And I believe in that even before they hit the slide and Lankford was officially ruled out for the season with that mysterious foot injury. So we wait and see on that by the way in the in the in the big ten on Tuesday night. Michigan did get a win at Rutgers which is no automated thing so that Michigan state's loss combined with Michigan's win also created room for separation within the league on Tuesday night. The Michigan state loss at Illinois was not the only upset on Tuesday night. There was another big one it happened in a big east. We're gonna get into that in a moment. But first check this out if you're trying to hire people, and you're not going to ZipRecruiter dot com slash I on that ZipRecruiter dot com slash I on then you're not being smart about it because normal job sites.

"top five teams" Discussed on CBS Sports Eye On College Basketball Podcast
"So every time if you're Louisville fan, I don't want you rooting for Louisville, But you kinda rooting for for North Carolina to establish itself. Maybe as a top five team because on select. Sunday. Let's just assume for second that maybe this starts to bounce the other direction just a little bit unlivable and little the bubble. They ain't gonna be another bubble team. I wouldn't think that's going to have a win anything close to his impressive as a twenty one point win at Louisville at North Carolina. So this is a an incredible first year relatively speaking under Chris Mack. I know when I talked to Chris in the off season. He did not understand. Why people thought your one would have to be a bit of a rebuilding thing. I remember not having them in the top twenty five at one twenty five and one at one point he jokingly was like Joe GP. What about us? I wanted to tell him like, dude, I think you're amazing, obviously. But you ain't got the players to to be the top twenty five team. And obviously I was wrong or at least right now. It looks like I was wrong because he's got a legitimate top twenty five team right now. They're looking yes. They are looking that part. I'm interested to see what they do there. Real quick GP. I just wanted to we didn't talk about this podcast. But I wanna flare just two quick items in the news, if you wanna go with you can or we can wrap if we want a piece of news came down on Wednesday. Darius. This isn't surprising. But whatever Darius garland is withdrawing from Vanderbilt to prep for the draft and rehab and all that stuff to be expected. Vanderbilt host Tennessee on Wednesday. The only other time Tennessee has been number one in the polls in modern history was back in. Oh, wait after they win against Memphis. They wound up having their next game. After getting to number one in the polls at vandy. They lost that game. Now, the differences that vandy team was an entity tournament team. They got a foresee that season. But it's it's just a weird coincidence that now Tennessee is the number one raking they've been chilling number one with you for a good while here as as we will know, but in the that just got it. Now, they gotta go to vandy that'll be interesting to see. And then we talked about the teams that are on these weird skids Purdue is at Ohio State and Ohio State. Join indian. Anna and being a five game losing streak recipient. They are spinning in the wrong way. Meanwhile, Purdue has been a metrics darling for much of the season actually ranks tenth at Ken palm. Despite a twelve six record. It's one six of its past seven. That's just an intriguing game will house that is a total get right game. I don't know if it will happen. But that's just something to keep an eye on there. I'm more intrigued with Tennessee Advani. 'cause that's the you know, what Tennessee you should win that game. But it would be it would be freaky and cosmic if eleven seasons removed from the last time you were in the spot new dropped Advani if that wound up happening again was actually at both of those games. I watched in person the number one team in the people lose twice in a four day span. I was there when number one Memphis loss to Tennessee in that explore on a Saturday night and on Tuesday night, the subsequent Tuesday after Tennessee moves to number one on that Monday ended and lose seventy to sixty nine. I was in the building for that one as well. Darius garland. Smart thing to do if you know, you already know you're in the draft. Why you why are you getting up and going to English class, you know, three days a week, or however, it is they do it like, you know, you're you're preparing to to be a multi millionaire. What good does a semester of college do for you? And I mean, I don't want to say it does nothing 'cause that's technically untrue. But when your way in pros and cons the pros of drawing from school and folks on the draft if you know, that's what you're gonna do far outweigh the cons. And so anybody in his shoes would be wise to do exactly what he's doing and hopefully rehabs well is healthy enough to to work out and show MBA people that he's ready to be a lottery picked because certainly before he got injured..
Lakers, LeBron James and LeBron discussed on First Take
"What's going on. Everybody welcome. I take Molly came here and we have some major. Exciting news here on I take. I am so happy. So Maxon Stephen may be on vacation, but they are getting ready to take on the Big Apple. I take officially moving to a new studio in New York City. The debut show airs on Labor Day, September, third. So we may be changing the location, but you can still expect the same hot towards debate. And of course, lots of special guests and surprises to welcome the show to New York in speaking of a voice. I miss Steven, you're on the phone. Hey, how's vacation going in your discreet location? Disclose location? Yes. I'm loving loving. Neely, I, you know, I relaxed enough to get ready to beat up on Maxwell another year. And what have you that's a given look comes with the territory, but I mean credibly excited that we're moving to New York City both myself and maximum native New Yorkers. It's been a long time coming. It's something that pleaded in baseball for years, and finally it's happening. So I'm incredibly excited. Yes, I am Stephen, I cannot wait. And I think one of the major things I'm excited about is obviously, you know, it's the mecca for for a lot of things, especially I still consider the NBA as well. And I think certain guests will be able to get there in a lot of other surprise and stuff will have for the show. So I think it'd be major, but I, I know you have to be kind of sad because you're not going to have to drive up to bristle anymore. You're not gonna come up here. You know what it is. It is a very, very sad day because I mean, what's not to love about Bristol, Connecticut. I mean. ESPN down the block that there's a McDonald's and and and and and a ruby Tuesdays and stuff like that. I've really, it's really sad that I'm not going to be able to be there because I'm going to be in new you most times and on occasion, I'll find myself with John and feed and Dominic in LA. I mean my God, it's such a tough tough situation, but I think I'll say, I can't wait and obviously can't wait at four t with you guys. Now that'll be on your home city, but saving, I'll tell team soon. I hope you are actually relaxing for some reason. I don't believe you, but please do that because you know, once you're back, you're back. Just know this when I'm back copy ready, then I'll tell, sorry my condolences to Mexico element in advance must've taken. It's about to be out. All right, Steven, Al. Talk to you soon. All righty. Thank you. Congratulations, Shane. Okay. So we have a first day moving to the Big Apple catch us every day at ten eastern starting on September. Third. Sports right now. I'm at Collins, new Denver Nuggets. Point guard. Isaiah Thomas is sitting down with our MBA insider h. g. now ski, I t who signed a one year two million dollars contract with the nuggets. Last week opened up to watch telling him this free agency was flat out disappointing, the twenty nine year old who continues to fight the perceptions of his help. One onto say, quote, people know that I've earned deserve the Bax contract, and that's the only reason why I didn't get paid what I deserved because I got injured. I get that. The biggest thing for me was to get to the best opportunity for me this summer and show that I'm healthy. You can read. We'll just four article on Thomas right now on ESPN dot com. Staying in the NBA with Kawai heading to Toronto on the broad in Los Angeles. We're looking ahead to who are the best and worst team heading into the season where than forty ESPN reporters, insiders and editors came out with a new set of power rankings. You'd think with James in Los Angeles Lakers at least at the. Five think again, no surprise. The warriors are on top, but three of the top five teams are from the Eastern Conference, the Lakers checking nine, but that's only the six best among Western Conference teams. Let's get back to. I takes Tony. Thank you the Lakers outing. Another piece to help LeBron next season's dining, Michael Beasley to a one year deal. As you just heard the Lakers are number nine in our latest NBA tower, rankings Mazel serve with you. Do think the Lakers or more likely to surprise us as upcoming season or disappoint, you know, I'm a huge Lakers fan. I think they are more likely to disappoint what fortunately with you to say that look. I mean, there are some really interesting piece. I liked the addition of Michael Beasley. They need shooters, but there are some really challenging personalities on this roster land Stevenson and Ray John Rondo and javale McGee. And now Michael Beasley, the expectations are so high for this team. And I think ultimately we're talking about a team that's going to be the six to seven seed. I think in the Western Conference I would never count LeBron. But LeBron James, I don't think has ever been on a team that has finished six or seven in its conference. I think it's going to be a very, very tough challenge for Luke. Walton debt may be the toughest job in the NBA right now, balancing those personalities, balancing those egos and keeping LeBron James happy. Can I respond to Mr. happy over here? Does he need to get in there and say, as I like to say, my real job is at the as the Lakers radio play by play guy. This is going to be great. It's going to be a fascinating lab experiment. Number one, we got LeBron look at the roster LeBron had last year in Cleveland compared to this roster this wrestlers just as good, maybe better. I can't wait to see how these pieces come to. And keep in mind. The Lakers young guys are all getting ready to make a jump. Brandon Ingram doubled his statistical numbers. Last year, Josh Hart was just the MVP of summer league Lonzo ball's coming off of a minor knee surgery, but I expect him to get better this year and Kyle Kuzma was the steal of the draft. I can't wait to see what this Lakers team looks like with will run as the leader. The games are going to be ridiculously exciting, and most of all, we're not going to be losing anymore. I've suffered through five straight losing seasons. The end of that is here, and I think that the Lakers are going to surprise a lot of people in the opposite of Mason. Dominique. I think the Lakers are, if you look at that roster, there's some real possibilities. I think I agree with you in part because I don't think the expectations are very high expectations are pretty low for this team right now. All the reporting about other opinions about this team is that they're the. Main team there. They're a bunch of guys who are wildcards and is no way that you can put together. And it seems like every other week, the Lakers are coming out trying to defend their roster construction and try and explain to us what they're thinking. I think what they're trying to put together as a smart team of bunch of guys who have veteran experience that are adaptable on defense can pass pretty well not as many shoot as you would like to see. But they have a couple of shooters. I think they have a decent team and they have a guy by the name of LeBron James. I don't know if you guys watch the playoffs last year, watch any basketball. James is pretty damn good, and he makes your team a contender immediately. So I think that's -tations are low. So I think they will surprise and then you look at the Western Conference. I think we talk about how heavy how stack the Western Conference is often. I think that's a bit oversold, but to be honest, you look at some of these teams that you think LeBron's going to be worse than Utah. LeBron's going to be worse than Portland LeBron's going to be worse than Denver. Like I know they're good teams, young teams that are getting better, but he's LeBron James and he has a young good coach. Luke Walton wa think is flexible and smart enough to make this team good. I think expectations are low so they will surprise Molly. Where are you on this? They're going to surprise disappoint. What do we think? What do I think people are expecting? Tell me that for fifty wins is what the expectation is an wouldn't you agree make the Ryan that just came out, said that they were ninth in the Powell ratings, right? The ratings ESPN pirating said they're nice night than they're not yet pulling up pulling up the radio. That'd be about right because there's three Eastern Conference teams, so that would put them four, five, six in the state. I think the expectations are Western Conference finals and.
Cavaliers, Cleveland and Tim Legler discussed on SportsCenter AllNight
"Espn app i am jim bask the brawn james says he has no idea at this point if his time with the cavaliers is over shoot he opt out on june twentyninth and become an unrestricted free agent cleveland can outbid any other team by offering a fiveyear max worth about two hundred nine million about which team might be the best fit for lbj tim legler takes a shot i'd say philadelphia and so so for me i look at the nba next year i think the only thing that's going to mess up the apple cart is a seismic shift or a superstar in the top five i think philly's a top five team this year let me get boston affiliate east of san antonio golden state houston in the west to me those are the five teams that you're looking at just don't make sense i don't see him playing alongside guys like james harden chris paul i mean how how is little brian really fit in that or how is fun for him to go to that scene obviously golden state's not going to happen san antonio i don't think that's going to happen although that might be that wild card out there because relationship with gregg popovich and how much you respect squire leonard maybe something happens there but for me it's philly too young transcended stars a style he's gonna fit in with very very well the other thing is you look at the lakers you go to the lakers look at all those banners and all those jerseys hanging up there and you go there when a couple of rings to the lakers for me to go to philly and do it there they haven't had a championships but a rich history of basketball at that organization he could end up being the greatest player to ever play there and maybe get them a ring or two while he's there i think.
