"And 3 11 4. Go back 25 years be to you Think about that. Yeah, That's what I'm saying. It's hard to have. I mean, I like we We criticized hardball, justifiably, but it's hard to erase 25 years of being just below. Great. You know what I mean? They're above average. Don't want to say their average cause they're not No, they're certainly not average. But everything else is to the contrary of factual stuff. That's right. Just listed four men and their accomplishments and there's a lot of losses there. Are you in or you out? All right. So despite multiple cancelations and concerns about the safety surrounding the college hoops season, many teams tipped off this past week. I watched a lot of college hoops over the weekend. I know he did as well. Condolences right now. It's ugly, but we're joined by Villanova and University of Kentucky. Yeah, that's the point. There was some weird losses. Your Tiki squad lost, too. San Francisco Villanova was attacked was that box at Virginia Tech, the tech so you know God's at Kentucky, Tuckey lost the Richmond, Kentucky. Kentucky Eaters. Johnny Newman's not walking through this door any time soon provided from the 19 year. I like to get that reference at Syracuse and the team that beat Syracuse back in the day as well.

College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court
"I on thursday. Tupper beat six rate. Kansas ninety awesome performance and then on friday afternoon mark to the gonzaga coach. Confirm that the zags beat auburn on friday morning. Nine hundred sixty seven after a player believed to be julian straw. They're tested positive for covid. Nineteen so norlander. We're gonna get into next credible opening week on the court second. But let's start here where you surprise in an auburn still played on friday after a gonzaga player test positive. I was surprised because my opinion is that if other teams and i'm not saying all other teams but many other teams were in that situation. The game would not have been played in my opinion. If gonzaga ran into the issues it ran into and it was playing in belleville. gonzaga would not have played. It's game on friday. Gonzaga might not have even played a game against kansas or fill in the other opponent again. If you put it in. And i'm i'm speaking from what i'm seeing here and the protocols and everything that goes into place to even holding this in the state of connecticut okay. Gonzaga had a member of its travel party test positive on thursday gonzaga took two different planes to the event specific and has taken two different buses. It's it's doing specifically to guard against this. But obviously there is no full on guarding against this so we played kansas. And we'll get but then you know at least one player as positive another believed to be The players roommate is kept out as a precautionary reason. And the game goes off because and you can speak to a gp. Frankly we'll we'll get to virginia san francisco the minute but i was i was. I was watching that game. So i didn't hear fuse press conference. I've seen some of what he said. They're the relying on the florida health officials as being the ones that were to clear it and the health officials down there made that determination and it might wind up that that determination is going to be okay in the end. But i've received four text messages from coaches to heads to assistance. All of them basically asking why in the hell is gonzaga in auburn. Being allowed to play right now one of them saying if this was us there is no shot in hell that we would have been able to play and so this this is certainly captured. A little bit of attention around the college basketball world understandably so gonzaga's looked awesome. But you can make an easy argument that it that it should not have a have played the game. What are your thoughts. And then what can you share for the listeners. That might not have seen a about what few said in his postgame. Zoom press conference. Okay so mark was clearly asked about it and he said he kept it very simple. He's did we followed turns guidelines not we tournament guidelines were were in place and established. We had this positive test. And then we follow the guidelines and then the florida health officials came in and they contact tracing how they contact tracing. They told us we were okay. We were cleared to play and we play. He kept it. He didn't really expand anymore than that but listen. They didn't do anything illegal. They possibly did something irresponsible but didn't do anything illegal. They didn't act in defiance of the tournament or florida. Health officials noted that florida as a state hasn't taken covid nineteen that seriously to begin with. So what florida. Health officials were okay. Where quite clearly would be the same thing that said california. Health officials are okay. Wis lucky if they wanted to play the game. They're lucky they were in florida as opposed to to somewhere else. And you're exactly right. It's bubble ville or in south dakota. I don't believe this game would have been played. Wichita state got sent home from south dakota because they had maybe a couple of people in the travel and party test positive. They were like okay. Get outta here. You're not playing today. you're not playing tomorrow. you're not playing it off. So i don't know that this game would have been played if it were a tournament. Where you're at or in south dakota but because this was sort of a thing they put together in fort myers as long. Auburn was cool to play and gonzaga wanted to play. they were allowed to pluck. I though was surprised that the game went off. Because i mean we've seen baseball teams. Get shut down over one positive test during the major league baseball season the world series if it would have if the dodgers did not win the game justin turner had to be removed because they got a positive test back of the game so they take justin turner around. They complete that game. The understanding was that game. Seven of the world series would not have been the following night. They would not have played until everybody can test test test for a few days and they make sure it's safe to play and so yes. I was surprised that they played the game. And hopefully nothing comes from it that it doesn't end up being a quote unquote superspreader of it. Because if we an outbreak now at gonzaga because by the way gonzaga tweet video from the locker room after the victory over kansas and they're all celebrating no mask jewish authors in front of mark. Few right in the middle of the celebration. He is believed to be the one who test positive. So hopefully nothing comes of this but if we have a subsequent outbreak at gonzaga or subsequent at auburn gonzaga is going to become the biggest story in college basketball. And it's not going to be a sports story anymore. It won't be because jalen suggs looks. Incredible it'll be because they knew they positive test in their locker room and they played less than twenty four hours putting their players at risk and the auburn players at risk. I hope it doesn't come to that. But if it comes to that this becomes a bigger story than just to college basketball story. It becomes something that's on. Cbs evening news. Yeah we'll wait and see if that does happen. I mean auburn's gotta be you know held equally responsible and all of this because it opted to play the game regardless you know there was no self imposed penalty here. Handed down by bruce pearl. That was not in play on friday and so inherently like. You know the chances. Go up that you're going to potentially be infected. We don't know but it's clearly out there. I mean there are. There are no shortage of schools and athletic directors coaches. Just straight up would not play the game. So we'll wait arizona. State would not play baylor because the baylor coach tested positive. Not even a player who was who was gonna who was on the court with other players twenty four hours earlier right and that came from that even came from above. Bobby's hurley's bobby hurley's had which is the case in a lot of these instances but frankly what gonzaga auburn decided to do it. Just flies in the face of convention in college sports in professional sports that we've seen and we'll will you know we're recording this on friday afternoon. We'll wait and see what's going to happen here. Gonzaga's got some high profile games ahead and we're really enough one of them's blade baylor like if there's if there's one team that's actually going to be good with this like it's baylor. They might just play the game regardless. But we'll wait and see if either of these teams are now forced because if it gets another positive one after that like they have no choice. They're going to have to shut down for two weeks and then ask themselves if playing against auburn was really worth it you know. Was it worth it. Because now you're gonna lose these other games

"This is what I'm going to say on the broadcasts and that was a couple of it. So I think that that's part of what it was and I do think that there are flashes like where he's able to do it and there's also times when he's really really not good at home. So I don't know it was it was weird that they kept harping on it though. And it felt like that was a talking point like that must have been something that a liner note that they had going into the game cuz it was like they mentioned it every game that they played every single game was like yeah Jeremiah Robinson Earl could really guarded the perimeter. It's like well, he's fine but it feel like it's not something that you should be beating home the way that you're being at home right now. Yeah, and like he's a good player who knows where he needs to be like, he's not out of position regularly. He rotates the contested the rim like he's not like bad overtly bad Defender. He's just not good away from the basket and Virginia Tech, you know kind of took advantage of that a little bit. So in Boston College certainly try and take advantage of that a little girl, so I'm just a little bit. I'm a little bit hesitant on what we've seen from Jeremiah Robinson Earl so far despite the fact that he's averaging what he's got to be averaging twenty points and ten rebounds a night right off. Yeah. I mean, he's he's been for the most part really good offensively and I I just heard that as well. I'm sorry like he's been very very good so far this season and and I struggle a little bit to take much away from anything that is happening in those situations this early in the season just because like I know that the the Villanova is down a couple of practices and I know that off, Gillespie like had an offseason injury that forced him to miss like six weeks and I don't think that these guys are at the point that they.

National New Hampshire Day with Matt and Emilio Barnard
"So each week, one of my podcast friends challenged me to find an episode related to one of those days and I'll be releasing it on the actual date occurs. So let's get to it. What is today's National Day? Hey Paul Matt. NFL. Bernard here we just got back from an awesome week into Hampshire Estate Near and dear to our hearts I'll there and my grandparents still live there. But neither of US are New Hampshire natives we have questions where in the PODCAST universe can we turn to learn more about the Grad State? Well Matin Amelio you've come to the right place but before I give a recommendation I'm going to give a little back story to everyone. When I started this podcast I decide that my guess would be podcasters not just people in the podcast. Matinee have been running mates since very early on going to last two podcasts movements together. But. He didn't have a podcast. So I never asked him to be a guest. Did Matt Start as podcasts just to be a guest on my show, the answer would be revealed later but let's talk about living free or dying I or at least pumpkins. Today. September seventh is national. New Hampshire. Day. I think a great place to start finding podcasts about New Hampshire is the outside in podcast which is made by new. Hampshire public. Radio. Now. It's not exclusively about things from New Hampshire but there are obviously New Hampshire base stories like this one. This episode talks about the Guinness Book of Records Event Were Keen New Hampshire holds a US record for most Jack Lantern in one place at one time. The town held an annual festival and everyone loved it. But as it got bigger and bigger so did the problems I mean if you've got over four thousand pumpkins around that can't be safe right? quaint was no longer the operative word. To find out what happened give it a listen, and let me know what you think by using the National New Hampshire Day Hashtag. Today's guests floral are Matin Amelia Barnard. As I mentioned Matt never had a podcast but due to the pandemic he decide to have some fun with his son with their free extra time and the Barnard's on the NBA podcast was born. In each episode Matinee, choose to colleges with well-known basketball programs and compare their famous alumni to see which school would come out on top. Many years ago I was a big college basketball fan and I still go to the big east championship every year when a pandemic isn't raging I also went to two final four tournaments many years ago. One. was in Atlanta and the other was in New Orleans, of course. So listening to this podcast gives some great of those times. For the episode I'm recommending it's the mismatch between Ucla and Oregon State. Since nothing is free in this world, I'm going to request that Matt and Amelia do an episode pitting Villanova and ruckers against each other. Short seems a little one-sided, but don't sleep on Rucker's there who history has some highlights amidst a lot of lowlights. For. Last recommendation, Matin Amelia recommend the Hollinger and Dunkin NBA show is debating the NBA's best they say and I quote.

Remembering Christian Laettner's Famous Buzzer-Beater
"Friends from Pearl Jam taping this Sunday afternoon. We don't need to take this on Sunday night anymore. Because there's no sports it's all it's all vintage sports. I've actually been preparing for this moment. My whole life. Old Games ran. Russillo is here as he is every Sunday. This was the part of the schedule. And we'll be talking about March madness thoughts where the last couple of weeks of the NBA would were going. Would-be worried about Mvp conversations and things like that. Now now I wanNA talk about The later shot. 'cause I watched that with my son yesterday. He had never seen he didn't know is going to happen. He was amazed. I got to relive it. Threw Him Russillo. Yeah that was Was An all time. I mean that that seriously in the moment you're like this is a kind of game that I'm going to think about the rest of my life. I mean not every day Certainly but late nurses dominance is a college player and then seeing younger people watch that game now and not like Lakers mom and you go. You guys have no idea you have you have no you think you know but you don't you know what I what struck me watching that game. I thought Leitner was going to be a really incredible pro because he was so good in college. But then you watch him and you think about the translate him as I go. He's got slow feet was really hard for him to like. Put The ball down. Every shot was almost like a miracle shot by hamlet on balance. Fling shots These turnaround fifteen footers. I think nowadays he would have been an awesome stretch five. I think he would have been shooting eight threes. A game in everything he did would have been different but I am. I was mad at myself. Twenty eight years ago that I thought later was going to be such good proud. Who else knew who knows what else happened. When we went to the wrong team. He had some personal issues etc. You know what the great lesson about Labor is is that he was. You'll know better than I want to get anything where I get this. Kinda thing wrong. But was he one of the first guys like tested positive for. We'd like in that era. Right or was rumored or something. There is always always rumors. He talked about that thirty for thirty. We did that. You know he definitely Off The court might have had a couple issues but a everything. I love watching these games and just getting upset about some of the issues are making 'cause like Grant Hill. Just first of all. He was a soft mark coming off the bench which seemed inconceivable but It seemed like he could have gone by anybody. He wanted to Kentucky team at all times and yet they're like all right spread out for Hurley. This is much better option. Hurley's got this. Maybe she go to grant hale the guy who guy who's going to be a first team all NBA guy in five years. Yeah later was suspended. Some Games there. I Don history but I just wanted to double check it because I remember later on and that was you know when I started talking to guys in front offices in I would be leading up to the draft and I was like you know. How can you figure some of the stuff out because what you learn is that no one really figures it out? But when you're outside of the world you think everybody has this magic. Is that that none of us can understand? It's really not that and something to gm told me that was really really smart and again it was the very beginning of me talking to these guys when we were talking about backgrounds personalities and try to figure things out and he goes look he was plenty of guys that are from terrible areas. Have a terrible family set up and have bad guys around left and right. And they're the best teammates they practice hard. They care they never get any trouble and then you look at somebody like Leitner. Who's like the poster boy? He's one of the best college basketball players in history. Not just guys that we saw was that dominant. He was incredible. And it's like here. He is Duke. Looks like he's a gap model and the whole deal and it was like well. Yeah you know now no one cares about any of this stuff but I just always thought that was really really interesting to kind of talk about lake nurse transition to the pros because he was. It's hard to imagine. He wasn't better because he still was a decent player like he still had a decent career but he was at all incredibly dominating at Duke You thought there's there's no way this isn't going to be a special pro. Plus we had familiarity with them. Because we're able to you know. Watch him and watch that Duke team evolve and even like they were shown Cherokee parks on the bench and acid. Like I remember. They recruited him. He was like the number one guy in deal he was going to be. It was going to go from ferry to Leitner to Cherokee parks. And you know you watch him on the bench and guys like Thomas Thomas Hale who added thought of in forever you know we just watched all those games back then and and something changed with College. Probably Fifteen sixteen years ago when you know. Maybe they will. Maybe it was less time. I know everybody's talked about all the possible reasons for it but it just met more back then like I remember where I watched that game and who I was with. You know an and there's been Great College Basketball Games especially this year late. They were shown. Today they're shown Carolina Villanova two thousand sixteen. That was an awesome game. That was really fun. But it. There was a weightiness to especially that ninety two seasons. Because you had the The fab five and It just every I remember everything about that seasons it was fun to relive it. I thought. Cps did a good job the way they showed it see. It felt like a real game. They didn't try to cut ahead. They would go to commercial and they would only show one ad so they could go right back so it stayed in the flow. But they didn't try to edit it. They didn't cut free throws so it kind of felt like being a time machine right. Yeah that when I've gone back in watch the NBA stuff You sit there and like the thing that jumps out especially working on the side of it now like I would. They're all these things that I would never think about is just a kid home watching these games and now that you work in it not that you and I have extensive background calling games but you just you look at it so differently You know when you mentioned the college basketball thing though it is. It's a simple answer. You can't have a brand where you're changing the brand every single time like. Imagine if you had this hit. Tv show with all these characters that people invested in and he said. Oh by the way we're never bringing these characters back for season two where he's GonNa bring all new characters and it just. It's hard it's really simple answer. But the turnover. Who used to get weird when guys would leave after their sophomore years but like what like what that. Guy. I think. He's doing now granted. It's wrong I think I should be able to go straight out of high school but there's just you know we like things to be easy as fans and really as consumers in any story like really it's how do you get people to jump into the next part of the story and college. Hoops like how many people can name. Who's on Baylor? You know for the season started. I stopped everything to watch Baylor. Kansas and it was a really fun game. This year was like nine. Am Tip out here. But I know that those kind of Duke Games or that Saint. John's Georgetown stuff for Sarah to that big Monday like I would watch that instead of the NBA growing up and now. It's absurd to think I would ever do that. I saw. I noticed watching that thinking about that team and even Kentucky and they were talking about how they were on probation for two years and the guys stuck around. Patino saying they really have anywhere else to go the other. Yeah they had all these seniors that were there but one of the things. I loved about college back then. Was it married high school in the sense I. The new guy shows up. And he's the freshman. He's gotTA prove himself. But then you got the older kids that have been there for a while and you know. The Duke was like the perfect example of. They're they're really like a high school team. Cherokee parks was the young freshman. Grant Hill was a sophomore. Who is going to take it over when Leitner leaves and and that dynamic that just eventually was gone. You Watch that game and you're thinking Mashburn Ingrain. Hiller are sophomores Mashburn. Just unbelievable there. Eight hundred twenty eight ten just looks like a classic stretch for now he he would have been I think a multiple our NBA Guy. There's no reason he should've even stayed at Kentucky for two years he should have gotten into the NBA as fast as you possibly could. We didn't realize that back then. Yeah I got to know Mashburn when he was at he. Spn One of my favorite living in Bristol stories. Is he and I go into Walmart to buy an extra controller and I didn't know it was going to pay for it because I didn't want to assume anything and I was like. Yeah 'cause I had the playstations hooked up in my hotel room and we were just bored out of their minds so it's me Jamal Mashburn at Walmart and I asked him about that team. And I always when asked about different coaches that these guys played for. I was always really interested. In which coaches told you to stay or told you to go because they're guys that are really selfish about it but then there's other ways you know now it's it's out of control like no one. Stang but back then I was like well. What would say to you he goes? I'm not letting you come back. You're too good like you're too good. You have to get out of here and I know you know Ripa Tinos. Rep's is taking pretty big hits over the last couple of years but that was something that I was always really impressed with that. He just looked at like I was like. Did you want us? He's Kinda wanted to stay because mashes whole thing was like. He's a New York City guy and his mother wouldn't let him go to a school in New York City. He was telling me about some of the recruiting stuff like Saint. John's back then still would've thought they were getting Jamal Mashburn. And he's like my mother was like you're not you're not playing ball in the city. And then he goes on a Kentucky after Kentucky went through that that brutal stretch. And you know that's that's the game if you're thinking of one loss that you've had in your Phantom Bill. I'm trying to think maybe it's two thousand. Ten Celtics Lakers the one. That's things the most I don't know if it's game six eighty six in the mets. But that doesn't feel as bad since they've won four titles but if you're a Kentucky fan like that's the kind of that stuff comes up every day it's like Bucky Dent in the eighties for Red Sox fan just sitting at a bar. Mfn Bucky Dent on because later shot. Well the Kentucky did end up winning. I think it's probably worse for Mashburn Jerk Kentucky Fan. You had to tidal teams later in the decade. Because like Ben and I were watching. We went right from yesterday. We were watching that Kentucky game and then the Major League Baseball Network were showing the playoff game in seventy eight Yankees Red Sox and we watched the last like probably two and a half innings and I was explaining to him how the playoffs worked back. Then it was a gay. You played the whole season. It was two division champs in each league. They tied so we had to have a playoff game. And he was like Whoa. How did they decide? Who had it as like? I don't remember. I just remember like everybody from Boston to stay home that day. And we're watching it. He had no idea it was going to happen. And a living through the the remmy hits that shot to Pinella. Panella can't see any just jabs his jabs his mid out. I'm getting mad at George Scott all over again. I think he was my least favorite. Red Sox player just swing for the fences. Every time never never touched a ball early on that he was early. It was at the head of it. Yeah Jangle That was such an agonizing loss and they've won four world series since and it still really hurts Agata Sad. I don't feel any better from it. Yeah I I grew up hearing about it because you know that's where our our gap comes into play. Were still too young to but it was one of the first things like eighty two as my first sox game against brewers and I I just remember like the Bucky Dent thing like it was four years later and people still in them. I remember that we again emceeing. So if the way your brain store stuff early when there's nothing else in there so they allies kids we can always go back and remember anything. Because there's no distractions of real life. But I remember being upset after the fact years later. Just my father telling me that they blew the fourteen game lead and you just go. How is that possible? Like how? How could they have low like how they had the best team? And all these different things and again that stuff used a matter a lot more And Eighty six at all comes up again eight years later so we've seen over the last few days in especially ESPN and then Nba TV and emo but others channels.

"How you doing good morning that stephen a you're up i talked to me all special it was spend the vincenzo was absolutely sensationally obviously deserved most outstanding play the game listen this is a guy that came off the bench and drop eighteen in the first half they had absolutely no answer for him whatsoever and we get that that's the obvious but it goes a bit deeper from the standpoint that villanova's defense really clamped down on michigan i personally felt that michigan was playing four on five basketball on the offensive end of the floor because simpson just wasn't that dude he wasn't he wasn't capable of doing really anything of consequence offensively and so as a result you could you could get two key on some other guys wagner had absolutely no help whatsoever i don't care about doing mas you know what is it twenty three points or whatever the case it would be i don't care about all of that because it was a relative non factor when villanova wanted to clamp down and amp it up defensively they were able to do that wagner ahead no help he got off early but then they keyed in on him and there was nobody capable of stepping up to help him against villanova defense you combine that with the fact that even tens though just showed up and showed out play big top basketball and absolutely sensational performance and there you have it just what jay williams said to us yesterday they were going to be outmatched they were going to be overwhelmed there were too many bodies too much personnel too much superior personnel on a part of the villanova wildcats were more importantly it was primarily because in a game like this you've got to have surreal god place to offset what villanova could potentially throw at you and michigan then have the horses they didn't have the court necessary to pull that off and i believe that's why.

"The big ten tournament or hot good coach lines good coach for the one thing is he does not have a championship when villanova nova also on their conference tournament villanova has been hot the entire season i'm not saying it's impossible michigan's on iran maybe michigan does what you did for years ago get hot wreck conference tournament carry that over into the conference tournament and boom you're cutting down the nets villanova to me if you wanna beat villanova it's a very very tough task and you're going to have to not only play not just thirty five minutes good basketball you need to you have to outplay them for forty minutes that's how much respect i have right now for the villanova program are they beat up all share their beatable now do could beat them texas tech could beat them but to me that the preeminent team in the country and they're so well balanced they have good size spelman could stretch the four and just some of their play and the way that they shoot unconsciously from three hours twenty plus games this year double digits threes and it's gonna be tough to stop them because they get on a lot of good runs and a lot of big ron's and you'll get that game last night west virginia probably played better when you look at it just from a minutes perspective but with about nine eight ten minutes left six point game villanova took it up another notch and then the next thing you know they're up by twelve and they win the game by twelve well that villanova eighteen did when they were okay last night about that they were okay last night they still won by twelve points up against the west virginia team that huggins now bob huggins and other good coach not a very good coach now that an excellent game plan the thing that hurt him though where some bad calls two or three of them in the early moments of the second half that then they had to switch from being aggressive and they couldn't be as aggressive because then everyone would have fouled out that is what really did hurt them that is what really did allow villanova to win the.

"Market wide in the officer but that's the number coming out of bagels and you know this is a very hard position to be in because i think west virginia present some problems for villanova and that they play that press virginia defense they were under seated as a five they looked very good in their two games in their san diego regional if you've got a villanova future you know it's hard you i don't know what you do necessarily because you've got them probably six or eight to one you really don't wanna hedge in the sweet sixteen with villanova you kind of have to wait and hope that they're a team that can take care of business here in this situation now on the flip side if you've got west virginia and several of our listeners do they reached out to me at a l now underscores got him at let's see who else has got him here a few listeners have west virginia futures and they reached out to me about and you know it's a tough spot to be in because you've got this villanova team who i think is the best in the country when they're healthy they've got to blow out wins when they started shooting the ball against alabama that thing just became a runaway and villanova's a very experienced team very very good guard play they shoot the ball extremely well from distance if they get some transition opportunities and you can do that against west virginia with an aggressive defense that they play doing over could run west virginia the gym on the other hand because of the style that west virginia plays they can get themselves some easy buckets if you have to work hard against villanova villanova's not as good defensively as they have been if you have to work hard against villanova stuff spot to be in so for west virginia here if you've got a west virginia future forty two one something like that i think i would probably look to pregame hedge that with villanova i think it would look to do it you know with that money line about a five point favorites they're laying about two dollars there on that villanova money line two dollars to fifteen something like that i think i would look to cut into it at that point i think that's a situation where you want to limit.

"Your top twenty five a one we obviously agree villanova's number one team in the country so i'll ask you this gp as a question then you can touch on whatever i said uh do you expect villanova to be the number one team in the country more weeks than not from now to the end of the regular season it's funny because our colleague and friend uh reform grave tweeted i think on monday when villanova was moved the number one of the ap poll he said villanova will not relinquish number one all season law and at first you go i don't know about that but then you look at it and like maybe so i will say the only thing that makes me say that's probably not true is that ap voters at least a certain percentage of them are idiots and they will drop villanova if it loses like at xavier from the number one spot even if villanova clearly got the best resume in the country at that point this happens all the time there have been times where there's one team ranked number one whose resume is so much better than everybody else's like it's just significant like even if they took a loss you in you and he's okay they lost today now we get to our morning i'm a look at all the resumes again allow they still get the best resume in the country the so i'm gonna keep him number one the ap voters instincts are to you lost you have to pay for that you lost you can no longer be number one after a loss i obviously think that's ridiculous but ap voters i don't wanna say most but certainly some don't think so so i think when villanova loses even if even if villanova then becomes a one lost team ap voters are are are a precondition to move a four loss team with worst losses than villanova to the number one spot just because they have a hard time putting their minds around the idea that you can lose and still be the best team the country a p because you still got the best resume in the country.

"Normally not like that were you have talented guys that can literally step on the floor first game of the season as a freshman but not have i guess a bigger ego than they really should in that in that instance there and yet they still have so much room to grow as college basketball players that they return assault force in juniors in some cases like josh heart as seniors and so what villanova's been able to do is not easily duplicated now i would argue there are only a handful of programs that could even claimed the because even like notre dame which is mike brace sort of an attached to the good old old philosophy more than any other coach gather occasionally notre dame has a freshman that steps on the floor starts doing some stuff but really it's more like okay this guy's now a sophomore and he's really breaking out down he's he's becoming awesome player there villanova is able to get talent keep it and for the program to allow itself to have a challenging but conquerable nonconference schedule it only as enhance it's a overall standing in that's why if we really step back big picture perished and we look at exactly like this season plus the previous four seasons villanova's gotta be a top three in college basketball maybe top four at the worst 'cause they have a national championship i understand that they've had some march issues in some really flameouts but let's take the full sample here look what they've done out of conference look what they've done to win their league and it's been a good legal for all there aren't really many programmes with the consistency and widespread winning a villanova and if you went back to 2012 i wonder how many schools would have as many wins as villanova and final four appearances as villanova and think wichita state would be there kentucky would be there.
