Bynum leads No. 23 Providence past Villanova 70-65

"Jared bynum scored 17 of his 19 points in the second half, helping number 23 Providence secure a 70 65 win at Villanova. When I had my shot, I took it, I've been finally been able to get back in the gym and get some workouts in. So trying to get my rhythm back, but was able to knock down some shots in that second half. Buying them hit it critical jumper off one foot with 24.7 seconds left. Then added two free throws, 12 seconds later, following a wildcat's turnover. Ed croswell had 14 points for the friars, who trailed by 7 midway through the second half before improving to 9 and two in the big east. Cam whitmore had 21 points to lead the ten and 11 wildcats.

"But I mean, maybe I just put it this way. I'm not sure Jay Wright would have dominated the big east over the next 9 years, the way he dominated it over the years. I'm not seeing about saying on that level, but will Villanova 5 years from now still be the best program in the conference, yes or no? I think it's possible. It's definitely possible. It's possible, but he's got a lot of power. Yeah, well, how about this? I just take the field. You got to take the field because you can't still come back with Hurley, Sean Miller, Xavier, could be a monster, Thad matta has the best winning percentage of any coach in the league at this point. Golden Gate, Mike speaks for himself and had coolies coming off a spot where he's got Providence operating a higher level than ever. Biggie's about to get really, really interesting. But I actually think that Kyle will be capable of if we look up in 2027. Capable that Villanova will scan it and say, you know what? This is still the best this is still the best program in the league. I would say. Yeah, I wouldn't rule it out. But if you told me building over the field, I take the field just because I think there's a lot of good programs and a lot of really good coaches in that league now. But Cal takes over at a time where, you know, there's some guys taken over and they're having to deal with NCAA sanctions and NCA clouds and depleted rosters and it's a total rebuild. We'll see who comes back and if the commitment's actually hold true. But Kyle's taking this thing over at a pretty good time. Jay's handing it to him in a pretty good spot. And I would imagine to whatever degree he can, Jay will try to help him hold this thing, this roster and the commitments together. You know, because if you're Jay and you turn in this program, you've got real sweat equity in. And the program that you care about deeply and you're handing it over to one of your guys, which he is. You want him to succeed for all the obvious reasons. And Jay has retired, but I bet you he will help, at least initially, as best he can in whatever way he can. To make sure that Kyle enters year one at Villanova with a roster good enough to compete at the top of the league. Last thing from me, here are the players that have been drafted into the NBA under Jay Wright at Villanova in chronological order. Kyle Lowry, done well for himself. Randy foy, 11 years in the league. Dante Cunningham played ten years in the league. Darren Hilliard didn't connect Josh Hart and certainly done well for himself. It really ramps up here in the past half decade. Josh Hart, how's Jalen Brunson working out for you? Hell yeah. That was like the most obvious first round pick ever and he dropped to the second round. Don't know what people are doing. Omari spelman, Don, Steven, who had one of the better out of nowhere title game performances that vaulted him into being hello, the 17th pick in the 2018 draft. That 2018 draft, talk about how great that Villanova team was. Brunson, spelman, Stephen, and national defensive player of the year, finalists in the NBA, Mikhail bridges, all in 2018, Eric Pascal went in 19 Sadiq bay, went last year or two years ago, and then Jeremiah Robinson Earl here. A lot of those dudes have stuck in the NBA because they are really good players with amazing work ethic, but most of them, if not all of them would tell you, I am where I am because I chose to go to Villanova and I played inside that culture. I get it culture is definitely a cliche. I'm just telling you someone who covers the sport, I think parish would agree what right built there and just like the everything that goes into having such a well oiled machine and all the work and intention and respect to people and the game all of that takes a ton. Villanova has been operating in a way that not many other schools have been. And so with that, Jay Wright to see at 60, I love it. I can't wait to see what he does around the game for the next decade. A hell of a TV job if he wants it. And his presence will still be felt, but it will certainly be missed as he's no longer on the sideline. You think we're done here in less than an hour? Oh, we're done. I'm good. I'm tapped. I feel like we're done. I feel like we're done. I feel like everyone who popped in on a Wednesday. I think we got a decent lab number there. Thank you to not of work and another dude. One last time we had this big day. I mean, K retiring news last summer was huge, but we had cheap way coming back. It was a big news day. It's a big day. Dead leg. I don't want to make promises that can't be kept necessary. We might be good until next week. Yeah, I think the current plan, you don't mind. I think the current plan is to reconvene on Monday morning. As long as all relevant coaches.

"Because this can get twisted around. I don't want to speak for Jay or Tom or anybody else. But there are a lot of coaches who will tell you this privately. They don't touch it publicly too often. But privately, they'll tell you, I'm glad players are making money. They deserve it. I think Jay was even quoted at one point this season, saying it got a little uncomfortable for me. I hope it was him that says this. It got a little uncomfortable for me making so much money while the players were not. And so what these coaches will tell you, some of them, is I'm glad players are making money. They deserve it. It's about time. And I'm glad players can transfer without sitting out. They deserve it. It's what's fair. But boy, it makes things chaotic. And it is hard to deal with, and there's a lot going on all the time. Both of those things can be true. I'm glad the student athletes are allowed to do these things, but it is made my job a pain in the ass and I don't enjoy doing it anymore. Same thing with social media. I'm glad that it exists because it gives me a way to communicate with people, gives other people a way to communicate with people. But and I don't think Jay was really susceptible to this too much because he's Jay Wright. Like if you're complaining about Jay Wright, what is something's wrong with you? But I do know coaches who have been worn out by social media. There was a coach a few years ago who might have been Steve prone, so you know how that ended. But who took Facebook off of his phone like acknowledged? Like, took the app off his phone? I think you're right. I believe that's true. I know that the social media stuff like wore out Mark turgeon's family. I'm sure Chris max saw all of this stuff because he's active on Twitter. Like all of these things are not everybody. They're cool with them. Like, hey, social media is cool, and name image you like this is awesome. And transfer waivers are terrific. But it makes my job not nearly as fun as I remember it being, and I don't want to do this anymore. I don't think it's a coincidence that you lose K, Roy, J, the Maryland coach, and the Louisville coach just quit in the middle of the season. I don't think all that stuff is a coincidence. I think you'll see more of this going forward where men will reach the point where they say I've made enough money. This isn't fun anymore. I'm just going to not do it anymore. About middle of the pandemic? Middle of the pandemic over the course of a couple months, I had a couple of agents and a number of head coaches, one of whom texted me tonight to remind me of this. Basically say, you're going to see guys who have been accomplished, like they basically said, this pandemic is actually going to change the course of the sport. Just watch, guys who are accomplished and have made their money, like the pandemic has changed everything. And then you throw in NIL transfer portal recruiting all that stuff, right? You're going to see guys retire early. It's actually probably what the mics and Jim Lara's Jim beheim said optic coach 70 or older, they will be the exceptions. Maybe there will be the occasional guy that does this, but the money's getting too big. The job is too much. And if you have endured decade after decade, 25 plus seasons as a head coach and assistant or whatever, you will see guys do this and writes the next example. It's not unthinkable that we get another one before the next college basketball season starts. It's frankly why there was plenty of noise around like Jim Lara might retire. Now that hasn't happened, he made an elite 8, signed a new deal and all that. But coaches like that, there has been rumblings behind the scenes on some of these guys. So on that level, I'm not all that surprised. Question, I know we're gonna get out here real quick. What's the Met score? You got the game on? What do we got? Down 5 two top 9. All right, there we go. Well, that's not getting killed. Probably gonna lose. What can you do? They're not coming back. That's not the type of thing they do. Villanova going forward without Jay Wright. Does it mean fascinating off season for the big east? That mata is going back to butler, Sean Miller is going back to Xavier, who's the third I'm forgetting. My brain's a scramble. Who's the third one? Mod at a butler, millard is Xavier, and someone help me in the live chat. Who is it? There's a third one. Miller. Paul's good. Yukon's good. Golden Gate Mike is still at St. John's. At Coley still there. I thought there was a third. Shaheen Holloway, thank you. There you go. So fascinating time. Shaheen Holloway. It's back. And then you and Jay writes leaving and you got Kyle Neptune. Coming in. A lot of black coaches in the biggies now too. Does villainy? It's true. The point of emphasis in pride in the conference, perish. I know you said it like you were disgusted by it. Not even close. The big east is actually setting the example for the rest of the sport there, which has actually been a point of emphasis among the gay systems. There as well, 'cause Kyle Neptune comes in. Shaheen all away comes in as well. Got Golden Gate Mike. You got that coolie. You got Patrick Ewing on and on. All right, question is this? Is Villanova in the next 5 years, not saying it's going to be every year. But will Villanova continue to be the team in the big east or are we more likely to have, you've got the situation where Villanova's. Now it's one that's fourth, it's 6, it's second, the biggie's now really has more of a conglomeration as opposed to the monopoly that Villanova had been operating under for most of the past decade. I do not think Villanova will dominate the conference over the next 9 years the way that it's dominated the conference over the previous 9 years. I think Kyle will be good. He's got a really great reputation. Tremendous job at Ford on this year sort of funny. A bit of an inside joke. But we were on set earlier this season. And I think we were doing an a ten tip off show or something and prince stover was hosting. And Brent was like, and Cal Neptune at fordham, what can you say? He's done one of the best jobs in college basketball this season. And we went to break and I was like, listen, he's done a good job relative to fordham, but he's not going to be a top 5 candidate for national coach of the year or ten or even 20 type things. And so we started joking. Just read the prompter. To stop trying, stop trying to give away coach of the year awards to Kyle Neptune. Just stay in the prompter. And so you can imagine the text message I got from stove earlier tonight. He's like, I tried to tell you Cal Neptune was one of the greatest coaches in the sport. He's now the head coach of Villanova, and that is official, by the way, now. Yeah. I think he'll do well..

"I like him. And I think everybody does. And the sport is, yes, like you said, it'll be fine. But he was supposed to be the face and voice of this sport for maybe the next decade. And now somebody else is going to have to fill that voice. We are going to have to, we got to re ask the clan to coach his question, Shire, Hubert, we got to re ask that this year. We got asked this question again. It was going to be the face and voice of the sport. Tony, Tony was number two. Who was number two? ISO? Tom izzo was number two at 20%. Tony was in there. I don't know where. But the circle back to what we were talking about earlier, if you would have said, Hall of Fame coach that just abruptly retires because he's just tired of it. I would have probably said Tom is a. Because as I'm sure you know, all of these changes in God basketball. I can just see Thomas, I can see Thomas are going for ten more years, but I can also see him one day being like, that's it. Yes, I could see that. Like if max Christie entered the transfer portal. Hey, he just, I need a GP. I was right. He'd just be like, you know what? I've had enough. This is outrageous. There was reporting that, you know, at least part of this thing that pushed Roy over the edge was walker Kessler going into transport. And he's like, you know what? I've had enough of this. But you know what? Roy's got to be sitting at home being like, I was wrong. Because walker Kessler did himself well there. That's part of it as well. The store on our news are up there that detail. It is a combination of it's not that Jerry's not anti transfer portal. He's not anti NIL. It's all of this stuff. And what it means to be an elite level power conference coach in 2022, everything that comes with it can wear on you. We've been doing it. J ra has been doing this, been a head coach for well over two decades, 21 alone at Villanova and hofstra before that. That's also a major factor with all this. A couple of things for you before we get out of here. One, K and write retire within a few weeks of each other in very different ways. They do have somewhat similar trajectories somewhat. You know, Jay Wright has spoken about how both at hofstra and then early days at Villanova didn't think he was going to last. Same thing with K for three years at duke, thought he was going to get fired, AD wouldn't fire him, then it all changes and then look what happens to Jay Wright, which is a lesson to be learned. It won't be learned, but it is a lesson to be learned for athletic directors at power conference schools. You hire a guy, it doesn't go right in year one, maybe not year two. Maybe not even year three. Doesn't mean you got the right guy, but you might not have gotten the wrong guy. Jay right when he started was 5th tied for third and 11th at Villanova, never won more than 20 games in his fourth season. He got to 24 and 8, took him to the sweet 16, and that commenced a run where he went sweet 16 elite 8, first round, sweet 16 final four, second round, first round. And then we got into that cycle, where Villanova was good enough to get to the tournament, but wasn't breaking through. And then that promptly got obliterated with Chris Jenkins shot, which takes me to my next point. Jay Wright has the greatest coaching non celebration in history of American sports. It's terrific. I've watched it like 5 times tonight. It's just, it's just amazing. I don't even need to, we're not going to queue it up here on the pod feed or anything like that on the video on YouTube. But you can already see it in your mind. It's just an all and my favorite, you know, my favorite part is I bet you know my favorite part of that thing. What is it? Bang? No, my favorite part is Tracy Wilson behind as the camera. Oh yeah, yeah, I know trace. I saw her tonight. Yes. She's got this amazing reaction. It's just diametrically opposing reactions. It's very, very cool. Question for you. Should we have seen this coming when Jay Wright continuously and repeatedly said, I'm not going back to suits. Was his refusal to be the sartorial champion in all of college sports? Was that where we blind to it perish? Should we have seen this coming? Did the media collectively fail the American public by not putting two and two together? Perhaps it was the first step towards retirement. I don't want to wear suits anymore. So I'm not going to, and then I was like. Maybe there's a little bit of that? Maybe a little? I think we're stretching, but let's have fun with it and stretch. Forever. Part of being a college basketball coach, part of the job was putting on a nice suit to work. And then this dump pandemic dumbest one of my lifetime comes along and it becomes normal wise to not wear suits. And then he just decides, you know what? I got used to not having to put a suit on. And I kinda like it. I'm not gonna do it anymore. And that's one step into retirement. How many people retire and suddenly they've been putting on suits their whole life and they never have to put on a suit again. Jay Wright was in a profession where he got to take the suit off, but still work. And he said, you know what? I'm enjoying not putting that suit on so much. How much more would I enjoy not doing the rest of this stuff? Let's find out. I'm retired. Ah, maybe there's something to it. Maybe. I think Jay Wright. And one thing, can you touch on this?.

"Pet chambers was an assistant at the time. And it was just, I don't know. I just remember that night fondly and being around him outside of a basketball Reno or Jim. And just really enjoying every conversation and just the whole vibe of the place. And I've never, I've never had anything other than great experiences with Jay. The story you're mentioning is we were out in Vegas for grassroots stuff. I'll try to give the quick version. Circa 2008 ish? I don't know. It was a long time ago. I think it predates us even knowing each other just so we're clear. Yeah, and so we were my wife was out. She came out with me. And we went to dinner and I believe with Dana O'Neill. In fact, I'm certain it was with danone. And we weren't having dinner with Jay, but we were in the same restaurant as Jay. And it was at the palms hotel, I believe. And as we were walking by, we see Jay and Dana used to be as beat riders. So they have a really close relationship. And so we stopped to talk to Jay. And while we're talking to Jay, somebody who works at the palms comes over, like, you know, in a suit, that type of person. And happened to be, if I remember correctly, a Villanova graduate who's now like, you know, one of the higher ups at the palms. And they got the Playboy club there, and this is when the palms was hot and the Playboy club was hot. I'm not suggesting that it's not anymore. I just remember it was then. And guys like, hey, coach right in big fan. I'm doing over grad. You know, we got the Playboy club upstairs, that really love for you to come up and see it. And Jay, he's like, oh, that's really nice, but you know, I don't know if I'm gonna be able to do that tonight, you know, I appreciate the invitation though. He's like, oh, coach, it means a lot if you came up, and it became very clear two things. Jay didn't really want to do this, but he also didn't want to not do it. Because this guy was asking him to. And it was a Villanova grant. So he was like, sort of on the low, like, do you guys want to go to this Playboy club? And like, yeah, listen, if you got to go, we will go and so let's make that happen. And this is when I was in I was going through a flip flop stage in my life. That stage only ended, I think, last December. It ended about the time yeast became a real thing. I went straight from flip flops to yeezys. And so it's like, all right, let's go. Let's walk upstairs. So it's me and my wife, Dana, Jay Wright, maybe some other person, but maybe not. And like we're going to the club. And I get upstairs, and it's like, yeah, you got flip flops on. You can't come into the club and flip flops. Nerd. And I'm like, all right. That makes sense. I guess I'll go get some shoes. And so we were staying on the other end of Las Vegas. I don't remember where, but it was like, you know, you got to get in a cab. It wasn't just walkable. And I said, all right, I guess I'll go get some shoes and come back as a Kelly, you want to go with me and she's like, yeah, and Jay's like, just stay here, it's fine. Gary, you just meet us back here when you get back here. I said, all right. So I turned to so they went into the club. I turned around, went downstairs to get into a cab and as I was taking my cab ride from the palms back to my hotel, I was like, I just left my wife with Jay Wright at the club. Yeah, he did. This is probably over for me. You know? Jay Wright and Joe write. It was just trouble. This is probably it for me. Like, what kind of idiot wife with Jay Wright, not to imply that Jay Wright would do anything inappropriate, but like, he's tall, great looking, incredibly successful. Like he's everything I'm not, you know? I just left my wife with somebody who's everything that I'm not. And so I went and got my shoes. Certain that by the time I got back, my wife would realize there's more out there, you know? There's just more out there. There's more of them than there are of you. The problem. That's what I thought she would realize for sure. There's more of them and they're horrible you. And so I was like, you know, I went and got my shoes and I was like, well, you know, this is it. I've made a cardinal sim. I let my wife be around Jay Ryan and she's gonna see how nice he is and smart he is and successful and all that stuff. And then she gonna look at me and be like, why am I with you when there are people like Jay Wright in this world? I was wrong. So I was going through that. Over and over again. It turns out I just got to the club and we just had a good time. Nothing crazy. And then we did shots off the waitresses, nothing. We sit there, we had a few drinks, and it was a good time. My point is this. My wife at the time had no context for who Jay Wright was. Yeah. But every time. Yeah, like she doesn't know. But randomly throughout every season over the past, however many years. She'll walk by the TV in a game will be honest. She'll be like, oh, there's Jay. He's such a nice guy. Oh, that's Jay. How's his team this season? I'm like, they're good. They're always good. They're really good. And even this past year, when he made the final four, like the one comment, my wife had on the whole deal, wasn't like, isn't it cool? He's in the final four and his final year, or oh, you're looking forward to this duke North Carolina thing. She was like, I'm glad Jay's back in the final four. He deserves that. So I don't know..

"Your podcasts. 2018, Villanova wins the title. At that point, when the team wins, there's all sorts of stuff that you gotta do and media wise and all this stuff. And I can't remember why it broke down this way, but Jay Wright had done his postgame press conference. Locker rooms were open at this point. And so there's this huge throng, I think he won the title, maybe won the semifinal. I think it was the title though. And we're in San Antonio. And so there's this huge throng, like the locker room entrance is here, and then it's a whole long locker room and there's another exit. And I can't remember why I was walking where I was walking, but everyone is over by the entrance to interview the players. And I'm walking this way for whatever reason. And Jay Wright steps out, and it's just Jay Wright. It's just Jay Wright, he's standing there. He looks exhausted. And he leans up against the wall. He doused. He's all, you know, celebratory water bottles, all that kind of stuff. And he's just sitting there, and it's just me and him for about 30 seconds, maybe 20 seconds. No one realizes because he's probably 20 meters away from the throne who aren't facing him. So we're just talking and he says something along the lines of this never gets old. And it doesn't even matter. It doesn't even feel like real to me right now. But man, oh man, I'm so tired. I'm so happy, but so tired. And then I go, it's amazing. This team, I remember saying something like, Jay, this is like one of the all time teams, which I still believe that 20, go look up that 2018 Villanova team. It hasn't been that long. They killed everybody. I think that's one of the three or four best teams in the past 15 years in the sport. And it was funny. I go, they're gonna see you any second now. He goes, I know, I know. Let's just enjoy this. And sure enough, and good morning, America's there. And then everyone sees him and it's just funny to see this whole army of press. They got it. There's the coach. What are we doing? And so I'm standing right next to him as they all huddle around him. And it's really the only time in my career where I've really like, it's literally Jay right against the wall. I'm standing right next to him, and then there's this massive, massive, semicircle of media, three, four, 5 rows deep, and you see all the camera lights. They all flip on. They're all bright, all the microphones are out. The notebooks are out. Everyone's out. And I'm like, man, what must it be like to just kind of go through this experience this? On a semi regular basis there. And he held court as he always does amazingly. So, and I kind of slowly but sure. I had gotten what I needed to get, and I slinked out of there to let him do it. And it was just, I remember him just being like, I'm going to enjoy the fact that for the next 27 seconds, I have quite quiet. I happen to be there. I didn't want to take it was really cool. I remember that scene because it was like you and Jay alone. And then Tony Bennet ran up and push you out of the way. That's right. There we go. Does it feel real to you that he's done? I don't know. I just haven't really. What do you mean? You're acting like does it feel real that my I don't know, does this not have a certain shock value to it where it doesn't feel like it's sunk in yet? Nada? Nada? Yes or no? It hasn't sunk in for me yet. Honestly, it hasn't sunk in. It's wild that it happened. I didn't think we would be doing too. Episodes to emergency episodes a day. I'll put it that way. Like it's surprising, but this isn't the type of thing I need to sink in. You're just ready to yeah, I was just trying to watch a metzger. I just wanted to come home and watch a mets game. I didn't want to do all this other stuff. No, no, in all seriousness. This is the type of thing that I can not believe that Jay Wright retired. It doesn't even seem real. Like for me, that's limited to like, I can't believe Kobe Bryant just died in a helicopter. Like, that's the one that I was like, ill to me. Sometimes it all catch myself. I'll be like, he is not with us, man. That is just insane to me. That's the type of thing that I need to sink in. Coaches retiring or just all right, fair enough. It's surprising. And I'm like, oh, wow. And then it's like, okay, yeah, you think about it, you process it. And now you just hope that he enjoys retirement in whatever form that presents itself. Obviously, if he wants to work in television, forget about it. Are you kidding me? Who would not hire him? Exactly. So if that's something he wants to do, then he'll be able to do it. I'm certain that his choice of a network. And beyond that, I've gotten a J okay. You really have gotten to know my guest. Kind of know Joe Biden. I wasn't aware of his real name is Joe. I had to know Joe, right? Fairly decently over the years. Enough to know, like, you know, I've met his wife and been at his house and that kind of stuff. And. You've been able to see the human side of him, right? I think from a distance, if you're a college basketball fan, you watch him work and he's the good-looking guy who coaches college basketball really, really well. But he's also like a decent man. Far as I had never heard anything to the contrary, and I've never experienced anything in the contrary. I mentioned going to his house and I don't mean to bring that up as some sort of humble brag. You got an even bigger Jay Wright's story. It's up to you if you want to tell it. Did you tell it on the podcast? I think I've told you. Not a learned about it at the final four. But like, you know, I was very new to this job if I remember correct. I didn't know J well back then. And I happened to be covering Penn State football game that weekend and Villanova's like whatever their version of midnight madness was was on that Friday night. And so I was staying in Philly on that Friday night and gonna do Villanova's midnight madness and then drive to Penn State the next day for a football game. And, you know, after the midnight madness things over, Jay is like, hey, you know, a couple of people come over the house, just go to the house, and so it's like Bill raftery and me. And he just like sort of treated me like I was Bill raftery. When he didn't know me the way first off, I'm not Bill raftery. It goes without saying. But he didn't know me like that either. And I just remember like his staff was there..

"Why don't I just enjoy my life? And I guess Jay could have stuck around for another 5 or 7 years and try to win a third national title, or even a fourth that, but at what point do you go? I've done it. I've got two titles. Four final fours. I've been a national coach of the year. I'm in the Hall of Fame. You know, you only spend so many years on this earth. I don't want to do any more years of Zoom calls with 16 year olds. Of phone calls with parents. I want to spend time with my wife spend time with my children and not live that life anymore. Or at least live a slow down life relative to the life I've been living. I get it. I'm surprised by it, but I get it. And it doesn't mean, by the way, because you're going on ten minutes here. You want to keep going? Yep. It doesn't mean that he'll never coach again. I know he doesn't think he'll ever coach again. I don't think he coaches again. I agree with you. I'm just saying, I've heard a lot of people say he's done for good. And I'm like, eh, it's a long list of people. Actors. Musicians, coaches, all sorts of people who retire and then decide, you know what? I'm missing it a little more than I thought I would. I want to get back in it. I don't think that is in Jay Wright's future. I'm just saying, you know, you can never know for sure if this is actually the end, although I know Jay believes it is. And I think that it probably is. Power conference coach texted me 30 minutes ago, hugs is a self beheim who's next. Who's next? If you would have asked me that, like, who will just say, you know what? I've had enough. I thought it would be Tom izzo. I could see how I wrote that. How about this? After Kansas one, I wrote, I'm not predicting what happened. It would not stun me if Bill self decided to walk away from college basketball. I had the wrong coach. I had the wrong, although anything's possible, I guess. If popov, hey, listen, what if Popovich, there's plenty of buzz like that. I don't think about so. Who knows? Who knows? To that point. Yes, two sources reiterated. Jay Wright is you've actually had, I've seen a couple I haven't been able to keep up with the tweet machine. It's been on fire, and I'm trying to do too many things. But I did see our buddy borzello. Share an interview he did with Wright a few years back. Jay Wright's been on the record saying Villanova would be his last coaching job. I dug around on that earlier on Wednesday just to make sure and I had a source reiterate that to me. He said after he did the Olympic thing, I'm going to paraphrase because I don't have the court up exactly in front of me now, but he was basically like, he has said there is no shot. He has no desire, could not possibly coach those players for 82 games in a season. Jay Wright does not want to coach in the NBA. So keep that in mind. I also have, I just want to at least address this because I've seen it. I've seen it people have mentioned me, and I don't know if it was in the chat here or not. People are wondering, he's 60. It's Jay right okay. I mean, I can't, I'm not his doctor, but I have been given no indication that any of this decision whatsoever is health related. It is, it is mental and physical health related. Again, there's some burnout here. And I mentioned this anecdote on headquarters, but when I went and saw Villanova play Providence in the middle of the season, after that game, I was talking with Jay Wright, both on and off the record. About a number of things, and I remember walking away from that conversation thinking, I can't remember the last time Jay Wright was like, that long winded and animated about that many things. Not as long witness as me. No, no, no, he's got nothing on you. Nothing on you. And so it makes more sense now. That he's done this in the moment, I didn't take it to mean anything too too. But I remember thinking after we talked about what we talked about, thinking, Shay Wright's got stuff to say, and man, I wish you'd say some of that stuff on the record. But I completely if you told me now that Jay Wright knew that night that this was his last season after, again, I can't, you know, some of the self record after respect that. But I would completely believe that he had made the decision by that point. Completely. I didn't think it in my mind, but now having this as hindsight, I do think that that is certainly possible there. And to your point before parish, let's champion this decision, okay? There's nothing wrong with people if they choose to want to work into their 70s. If Jim behaim wants to coach until he's 94 years old, more power to you, we should embrace this. If you want to have a normal lifestyle, normalize retiring at 60 years old if you have the means and desire to do so. And I think that most people will do this with Jay Wright. I got to also perish as all this has been whirlwind around for the past few hours. This hasn't even sunk in in for me. Like Jerry, it's not coaching at Villanova anymore. He's not going to be part of the sport and the way that he has been. It's kind of weird actually. We had the farewell tour. We built up to it. I get it. The shock of Roy Williams was there, but there was always for like 5 or 6 years. There was like, we're always going to retire. One of these years, he's going to retire one of these years, and he finally does. Jay Wright, man, this is a ding, it is. Like, especially going to be fine. It's going to go on, but it isn't new era. Undeniably. Okay, no Roy, no right. You ready for this? 6 of the 12 most recent national championships are those men. O 9 is Roy, you can go back to O 5, but then the girls get smart. Ten and 15 are K, 16 is right, 17 is Roy 18 is right. And even in years when they didn't win the title, they also made the final four. It's weird, man. The only trivia time in ten seconds or less? Okay, let's go. Only current active head coaches in the sport with multiple national titles. Who are they? Bill self and Rick Pitino. Oh, that's a bingo right there. Bill self and Rick Pitino are the only active coaches now. With multiple national titles, obviously Hall of Fame coaches. And to me, it's just, I think like 5, ten years down the road, even longer, like there's gonna be a lot written podcasted said, maybe, you know, whatever documentary forms and any kind of mediums are there in 2035 about this 2022 final four. The duke Carolina angle, Kansas, and whatever happens with this program and self career from here on out, the fact that it was Villanova with Jay Wright and the final run for him. The idea that we were all sitting there watching the end of two Hall of Fame careers is amazing to me. And yes, you mentioned, I'm glad you brought this up before. Another thing, like Jay Wright retires, I haven't really thought about this. I don't know if he's a top ten all time men's college basketball coach. He's in the conversation for top 15 undeniably, but the thing that he'll have, he's the coach of the 2010s. That's his decade. Multiple national championships, Villanova wins 7 out of 9 regular season titles in the big east. Villanova.

"How my memory gets sometimes. Last off season. We did our candy coaches series. And we asked more than a hundred coaches, who should replace duke's Mike's key as the most prominent facing voice way, was just a few weeks ago. It's amazing. First place with 38% of the vote was Jay Wright. Nobody else got more than 20% of the vote. And as it turns out, on literally the same night, in the same building, Jay Wright coached his final game, same way Mike krzyzewski coached his final game. And just a few weeks after coach K officially retired, Jay Wright also retires. And yes, I'm surprised by it. Shocked even. If you were to ask me to predict 50 things that might happen this off season. On the day after the national championship game, Jay Wright retiring, it would not have been on that list. But when you sit back and think about it, I kind of get it. He's a husband, he's a father, and he's someone who has been grinding for a long time. I do think it's worth pointing out that he didn't really have a half season last season. You know, he was with USA basketball. He kind of went from one season to the next to the next. Just like with very little off time. And I don't think any of these men have publicly acknowledged ideas and fed up or beat down with the direction of the sport. I don't think Roy ever said it. I don't think Mike ever said it. And Jay certainly hasn't said it today. I had sources tell me. It's burnout. Not the only reason, but a significant part of the more than that. But yes, burnout is part of this, yes. Absolutely. You will never convince me that it's a coincidence that three all time greats all retire within 13 months of each other. Because that is what just happened. And 13 months, very within 13 months of each other, very shortly after the sport changed in some significant ways. One time transfer waiver becomes a thing, naming the likeness rights become a thing. Being a high major college basketball coach has always been demanding, but it's never been this demanding, and it's never been this difficult. Now, to be clear, all of these men who coach at the highest level, they get paid an incredible amount of money to work really hard to have a demanding job. But that doesn't mean it's not a demanding job. I don't want to say it's 360 five days a year now, but it's something close to that. I've always thought it was interesting to contrast it to life as an NBA head coach. You realize when your season's over as an NBA head coach, with few exceptions, you can disappear for weeks, and it just doesn't really matter. You've got a front office handling your personnel decisions. You've got a front office working out draft prospects. They might want your input. They might not. But you can really have some downtime. And oh, even during the season, you can really have some downtime. I remember talking to Brad Stevens in his first year as coach of the Boston Celtics. And the Celtics came through Memphis and played the grizzlies. I went to the game. And I talked to Brad and I was like, so how you enjoying it? He said with a losing to killing me. It was a total rebuild. He lost a lot initially. He said, I've never lost this much. It's driving me crazy. He said, but man, all I do is watch film, coach my team. He's like games over. I go straight home. I don't have to spend an hour with a recruit in his family. I don't have to text message ten people. You know, you really do just coach your team and watch film and that's the job. And you contrast it with what being a college head coach is. I mean, during the season, it's constant recruiting, Zoom meetings, hosting recruits, text messaging, phone calls, as soon as the season's over or even before it's even over these days, you got to re recruit your roster, the idea that you ever look at a young person anymore and say, you know, I'm looking forward to coaching you for four years. It's just crazy because the likelihood of that happening isn't good. You know, you got to re recruit your players. You got to recruit new players. You don't know what you're building toward because rosters are changing in many cases, drastically every single season. Now Villanova was less susceptible to this than most for a variety of reasons, but still the whole thing can become exhausting. And, you know, again, just in the past 13 months, we watched Roy Williams say, I don't want to do this anymore. Mike cesky say, I don't want to do this anymore. The Louisville coach quit and said I don't want to do this anymore. The Maryland coach quit and said, I don't want to do this anymore. It is a harder job than it's ever been, and for some guys, it's just not that much fun anymore. And if you've made so much money that you can actually walk away and just enjoy your life, I think for a lot of guys, it's very sensible. Another group of guys at the other end of the spectrum who just need to be in the gym. They just got a coach. They love it. They need it. They can't imagine doing anything else. I imagine that's Jim behaim. Certainly appears to be. He's outlasting everyone. It's unbelievable. It really is. But for somebody's guys, like, if I've got enough money to enjoy my life, and I don't feel like dealing with all of this stuff, I have to deal with..

"It was like a few former players, maybe even a guy or two that's in the NBA, started to really know the deal. And some conversation outside the walls of that facility started to kind of get out. Jay Wright was trying to get this message across to the players that were being recruited to come into the coming to the program. And he accurately sensed that this might actually wind up breaking in a way where he would not be in a position to be able to meet with his team in a quick fashion and tell them the news. So he called a team meeting and at that point, I was told by a source, there's an impromptu meeting that's going to happen here. And who's to say, like, Jay Wright maintains the option for all we know Jay Wright wakes up Wednesday morning, thinking he's going to retire, but then has a conversation with Patti's wife and it's like, you know what? I'm Jay right damn it. I'm going to go one more year. So there was always that possibility until he literally told it to the people in the program. And then here we are. It was reported. That he was seriously considering retirement, which was true at the time. And now he is actually retired. He has done. He is leaving behind a massive legacy. This is humongous. It is stunning news for sure. But credit to Jay Wright for keeping it quiet as long as he did. Obviously a private decision. I think that he, I personally believe that he arrived at this decision. A number of weeks ago, and it was just a matter of finding internal closure and then making sure every single box GP every single box that he needed to have checked, leaving the program and the standing that he wanted to leave it to was indeed checked. That's exactly what happened. I got plenty more thoughts, but I'm going to shut up and let you talk now. Well, first some bullet point things on Jay Wright, just so people understand how accomplished this man was in the sport. He's now walking away from relatively speaking at a very young age. This is a sport where people routinely coach into their 70s now. And I think most people thought that Jay probably would. Certainly would have the opportunity and yet he walks away at the age of 60 with his program still operating at the tip top of the sport. This isn't a situation where he lost focus and the program slipped or anything like that. He's just walking away. For reasons, he has explained to some degree in a statement released, but for other reasons, I think we can accurately and appropriately discuss momentarily. Two national titles, 2016, 2018, four final fours, most recent one being earlier this month. Ten conference titles, 7 conference tournament titles, the Naismith memorial Hall of Famer. Two time Naismith national coach of the year, 6 time big east coach of the year, two time America east coach of the year, AP coach of the decade for the 2010s. In the past 9 seasons, 7 big east regular season titles, 6 of them outright, and in the two years he didn't win it, at least a share of it. He finished second. And in that stretch, also 5 biggies tournament titles. He's won 20 NCAA tournament games since 2016. That's more than any of the coach, more than any other program. This is an all time great. I heard you say that on CBS sports headquarters and he undeniably is and one of the points I made on headquarters is that there's a lot of guys who have accomplished a lot of stuff in this sport. They're not all respected by their colleagues. They're not all liked by their colleagues. But I can genuinely tell you, I don't think I've ever had a coach even private privately to me. Say something negative about Jay Wright. And I went and looked this.

"His retirement after 21 seasons at Villanova. He'll reportedly be replaced by former assistant current fordham coach Kyle Neptune, so let's start with the obvious question people are asking, what exactly does this mean? For the future of fordham basketball. I knew you'd go there, man. We gonna leave before them. Leave it to rams? We'll start moving 27 then. We'll start with fordham. We'll get a word from our sponsors. Hopefully it'll be that news showtime series. And then we'll get to Villanova. No, serious question. Why? Why is Jay Wright? In a sport where men routinely coach into their 70s, retiring at the age of 60 after a trip to the final four and with a preseason top 20 team set to return. We really just covered a final four were two Hall of Fame coaches coached the last game and nobody knew about it. I don't even know if in his heart of hearts Jay Wright really, really knew that he was done, but he was getting close there. So, all right, let me take you a walk through. Since we last podcasted, I won't get too into the behind the scenes details on this stuff because I can't. But there's a few things I guess I can share. So we podcasted and then I got a call. I got a call from someone who I just couldn't believe they were calling and telling me this. They're like, you might want to check in. I want to check in on Jay right right now. So whatever, then that was an afternoon. And I came to learn, let me guess who it was they called you. You will not be able to guess. You can guess every name on the right. You won't be able to guess it. I guarantee you won't be able to guess the name. Okay. First guess. Yeah. Ryan RTD. Son of a pain. Oh, I think just got engaged. I think you just got engaged. Second guess, Ryan RTD okano's fiance. You're getting closer. So you can obviously see if you're watching on YouTube, do smash the like button. You can see Jay Wright. He just before we went live here on Wednesday night, he publicly announced his retirement confirming what was I reported in everyone else. So anyway, here's what I was told. Okay, middle of the season, Jay Wright starts considering that this is going to be privately. He's like, is this this might actually be my last hurrah? But very, very few people know that this is going to be the case. Then I'm told by the time we get to mid march within the program and you got to realize and Villanova fancy realized this meeting people listening, coaches listening, they realize it's Villanova's considered like Fort Knox in that stuff just doesn't really leak from there. Tell it to Ryan RTD Ocado's fiance. That's right. And you know, Villanova for his amazing of a program, like they get it like the players, they're good interviews, but they're not going to give up, they're just, you know, they're, you know, they're robotic in nature sometimes. And I say this, beloved, but that's just a reputation. If J Roy has built an amazing culture, but within that, you know, the walls are up. So by mid March, I was told today, you know, within the not the players. The active players did not know this. A couple of people in the Villanova family started to get the sense that maybe Jay was considering that this was actually going to be it. And then season ends, I was told, if you really go back and watch after Villanova won the elite 8 game, it wasn't just Justin Moore's injury. You can see Jay was emotional afterward in a way that he seldom is. And so he might have been pretty much all the way there. Certainly there with his with his wife at that point, patty. They had gotten to a place I think where they were pretty comfortable thinking that this was going to be it. Now, the season ends and I don't have the date for you, but he does tell his assistance, right? He tells his assistance and they get informed of this. He could have told him in the middle of the tournament for all I know. I don't have that exact information. But he tells his AD. He tells the school president, and then there's a period for a couple of weeks here where they sources tell me they go to Jay and they say, listen, we don't want you to stop being our coach. Which is obviously, they respect the decision, but it's Jay frigging right. He's 60. You just made a final four. Please don't stop being our coach. And so there's a little bit of back and forth trying to get him to change his mind. And then a process develops where there are two clear candidates for the job. George holke, who's the lead assistant on staff now and Kyle Neptune, who's at fordham former assistant at Villanova, he is going to be the next head coach. He winds up getting the gig. And with their process, there we go. So the player still don't know. Players did not know until shortly after 8 p.m. on Wednesday night. It hasn't, as we are recording this podcast. It has not even been two hours since the players and everyone else in the program was actually told by Jay Wright. I am going to retire, Kyle Neptune is going to be your next coach. Oh, by the way, Villanova's end of season team banquet is Thursday night. I am told by one source that this was not necessarily the plan of how this was all supposed to go down. In fact, things just started to rumble a little too much in the past 24 hours.

Led the entire game by, I believe, is as many as 19. And just played brilliantly. I mean, every coach would tell you that, hey, we want to always play our best, right? Whatever. You're not going to. No team in the history of any sport always plays the best. So if you acknowledge that up front and say, okay, that can't be the realistic goal. What's the actual goal? How about we play our best when we need to play our best? And maybe the final four against a Villanova team that was trying to win a third national championship in a 6 tournament span. That's a great time to play your best. And I thought Keynes did. You know, I'll keep this simple. If you'd have told me, Saturday morning or three days ago, hey, I'm from the future. Let me just tell you a couple things about Kansas Villanova. One, David McCormick is going to get 25 points. Two, Kansas gonna shoot 54% from three. That's all you need to know. You don't need to know anything other than that. It's like, so how about the canes of beat them by ten or 15 or 20? Because there's no way Villanova can be competitive when those two things happen, especially after they lose Justin Moore to a season ending injury in the elite 8. So it just sort of the way these things happen. I happen to work with a bunch of either former Villanova coaches or Villanova players or Villanova fans, like Steve lapis, was on set with me tonight. He's a former Villanova coach. Chris walker is a former Villanova player. He works with us. Work was on set with us tonight. Former Villanova assistant. And then Andy tulan, who works with us in research, he's a diehard Villanova fan. And, you know, so we're in the spirit of transparency. We all watch those games sort of separately. Like you could stay on set or go back to your hotel. So a lot of us went back to our hotel to watch that game, and then we'll meet the lobby after that game's over. And then we'll head back over to the green room and get ready to do the Late Show. And so the first time you see C walk or laugh or tooling after that game, you're like, I have, hey, sorry. You know, hey, sorry that went that way. Man, you know. And every one of them was like, what are you gonna do? Just got beat by a better team that played the incredible. Like, none of them were mad or heartbroken or frustrated. It was just like, yo, man, Kansas would have beaten anybody tonight. It just happened to be us tonight. And I do think that's true. I don't think there's a team in America Kansas wouldn't have beaten on Saturday night playing that way. And if they played that way again on Monday night and I guess by that way, it means McCormick goes for 25 again, they shoot 54%. They're not going to do that again. But if they were to do that again, they would win, they'd beat North Carolina by double digits as well. That was an a plus performance from the jayhawks. And there was really not much Villanova could do about it. And it was eerily reminiscent to the 2018 final four when Kansas and Villanova faced off against each other and it was Villanova doing the beat down very early. That game was over. I remember, I think I was preoccupied and came in like ten minutes after the game started and it was like already a blowout. This was the same case. Nova in that game jumped out to a 22 to four lead. This matchup, it was 16 to 5 pretty early on. They led by 19 points in the first half. That was Kansas's biggest lead in this game. To me, this was obviously very impressive from Kansas. This was what I think we've been waiting on from Kansas because the Midwest region was always theirs for the taking when auburn lost the number two seed. It felt even more like that was the case. Number three seed Wisconsin fell pretty early. Iowa, which was the 5 seat in that region, fell pretty early. And it seemed like things were obviously opening up. But they haven't really put on a performance where we think, oh wow, that looks like a number one seed Kansas like that team. Has a real chance to win it all. They've looked pretty good and they keep winning, but tonight I think was kind of what Kansas is at its best, which was when ochai bhaji is hitting threes and knocking down shots when David McCormick is really involved on the boards and on the offensive glass. This team just has so many different weapons on the perimeter. I think is really impressive. And agbaji coming into this game was averaging 12.25 points per rebound. He'd missed ten of his 14 three point attempts in the four previous games. In this one, he was 6 of 7 from three. He made his first 6, three point attempts. Kansas last week only made 7 three point attempts. So it just felt like this was Kansas tonight, but it was a really impressive performance. Kansas looked really good against Miami in the second half. And it felt like they were just able to kind of build on that. And this was a really complete performance. And yes, Villanova with shorthanded, no Justin Moore. Villeneuve already had a short rotation. But I think Kansas would be just about anyone tonight in New Orleans because just to how well they played. And they are putting together now. If this thing goes the way it's expected to go on Monday night and we'll get to that eventually. They're putting together quite a run here. I mean, when your lead 8 game by 26, when your final four game by 16 and then if they are able to put Carolina away by double digits, that doesn't really line up with some of the all time overwhelmingly incredible performances from national champions. But the last three games have a chance to be total lopsided blowouts where they make it crystal clear. They're the best team in the country. Yeah, like abaji. How about this? So I talk about these two amazing things at Kansas did and none of them. Neither of them is, oh, abaji started 6 to 6 from three. Like what? I'm sure Jay Wright will give him two days. Two weeks. And he'll just be like, yeah, we weren't beating that team that night. You know? On a different night with a healthy Justin Moore. We could beat them. But we weren't beating them on that night. And sometimes you just run into that. And that's what Villanova ran into. And oh, by the way, you know, we'd spent a lot of time talking about rumi Martin heading into this thing. Didn't really give him anything. You know, he was off the bench, one of 5 from the field, you know, finished with three points. Played 21 minutes. So he was in the game, but didn't really do much, and it didn't matter. It didn't matter at all. And so now.

"Okay. There we have it. You don't have to wait. It's possible. That's right. I did get some hypothetical future lines on the national title game from bet online AG earlier today. Before you say this, I believe on the last podcast I told you, duke should and would be the favorite to win the national championship and you said it would be Kansas. That's true. Okay. I was wrong. You were right. I don't have it. I should have queued up. But what I'm about to hit you with, what I'm about to hit you with my put a wrench into things. I was wrong. Okay, I know. I know, that's why I saw your tweet, but yeah, go ahead. So if it ends up being Kansas against duke in the title game, which is what, you know, that's the most likely of the possibilities that's the most likely one. Come on, duke. According to bet only, online AG. Now, listen, other places it might be different. This is strictly according to there. This AGP numbers. This is bet online AG. Kansas would be a one point favorite over duke. If it's Kansas, North Carolina, Kansas would be a 5 point favorite. Over North Carolina. If it ends up being duke Villanova duke would be a three and a half point favorite over Jay writes wildcats. And if it is Villanova, North Carolina in the title game, Villanova would be a one and a half point favorite over North Carolina. So I recognize that in the betting markets right now, duke is a slight favorite to win this title above Kansas, but according to bed online AG, if duke Kansas play on Monday night, they would post Kansas as a one point favorite. Let's go do it. Come on. I mean, I gotta wear out the sound board over the next few days. Can we acknowledge again? This is incredible. Let's go do it. Come on. This was Mike's your chefs, you trying to drum up and dream up new chance. Remember when that happened? First of all, the fan base was beloved saying capable, you're our guy, come sit with us capable. And in an endearing way, he scolds the hell out of him. Remember that? Mid game, he stares him down. You got these, you got these two freshmen. These trust fund kids who don't even know how to react. They don't know what to do. They've never been looked at like this one. They're entire life. And then after the game, he's all ticked off on that. Let's think of a new chair. Incredible. There's like this cliche about old people getting irrationally mad about nothing. And yet he does it all the time. Defense. Do you see it the other night when they were doing the postgame interview? And Tracy was talking to Mike and Paulo was like maybe window was right. They were right behind him. And Paula was like, this the goat, this the goat..

"Of the NCAA tournament. You of course can follow John Sheeran on Twitter that's at Jay Sheeran. One 9 8 one and John. You know, we were very critical of some of your strong assessments that were anti Gonzaga going into the round of 16. The floor is yours, my friend, to take that victory lap and tell pain and I to shove it along with anybody else that believe this was finally going to be the iteration of Mark fu's bunch that could cut down the nets and win that elusive national title. That's not my style and you throw enough mud, some of it sticks to the wall of effectively and that's all we did. Look, there were, I think, exposed in the game, but yeah, a lot went Arkansas way and yeah, it's a nice to see someone else. John, because I record this podcast prior to what you thought was recording. That was all recorded. This isn't even recorded. Tell us how you really feel about Gonzaga and specifically Chet holmgren. Because we're going to have a side benefit. Yeah, look, I'm just not a fan. I think he's obviously a unique specimen, but I think physically he's got big issues with how he got bullied in a lot of the game and put him off his game. I didn't think he shot the ball very well at all. And sure you can talk about his ability at that size to be able to handle the basketball, but if that is an issue in the college sphere, then I can only imagine what the NBA, his MBA peers will do to him when he gets in there. So unless he can find 60 or 80 pounds and months time a few months time, I think you'll be in big trouble. We figure we'll pack it. Down, a little fish and chips, a little pasta, meatballs between the two of you guys as a nutritionist. Chat home girl come rolling into his NBA season like 50 60 pounds. Heavier. It could be an absolute force in the paint. He could fix it with my diet. We'll just get him on the abrasion damn day shambo died. There you go. Yeah, I think they test for that kind of thing in the National Basketball Association. But that's a different discussion for a different day. John Wick Gonzaga going down. How does your future book look with the four remaining teams knowing that their blue Bloods? We talked about the first podcast earlier. I know it's circulated through social media that you guys took some pretty big bets on both Kansas and duke leading up to the first game of the tournament. Yeah, I mean, that's been exactly it. Nostradamus wouldn't have predicted this last four in the same way that that better did. We took some pretty hefty bets. I think North Carolina duke in particular, there was also a follow-up bed on Villanova, so right now the only winner left in the four that we have is Kansas, so we were not that high on them, though, so expect that customers be walking away with a nice profit. And if it's either North Carolina or duke, we're talking in the realms of 10 million lasts for us on the tournament outright. So a pretty hard one to take, but overall the tournament has been amazed and handles through the roof. I look back at last Sunday and see the Saint Peter's game without the ability to be able to wager on it in New Jersey was double the highest turnover NBA game on that day. So a huge demand, huge event and looking forward to seeing the last weekend on us. You know, when you talk about handle and I'll let pain ask the hard hitting questions about what you guys have seen for the two games as far as sharp action and such. But for a game like North Carolina and duke, Saturday and prime time, it's a second game of the day. How does it compare at least as way you guys are forecasting compared to a marquee NBA game like we saw last night between say the Golden State Warriors and the Phoenix Suns it's on national television with some of the preeminent teams in the association or maybe even the Miami Heat Boston Celtics game that preceded it. Yeah, I mean it's bigger, it's almost double I think is what we're seeing like the numbers we have already for these games this weekend are really, really big and I think I alluded to with last week certainly a couple of days I would even bigger than NFL games in the middle of football season so March Madness is right at the top in terms of importance of an event for us over the month and the ability to be able to continually drive volume expand on the product innovative over the next year or so we have that new model that I alluded to this year and we'll have a better version of that for next year and I think it's only onwards and upwards for the collegiate sports and particularly the high profile events like football playoff season and marsh madness. John, I asked you on the opening round podcast. I'll put your feet to the fire again here now that you have a little bit more data and how much money do you think you guys are going to take on March Madness as a whole? Our listeners like that big round number. I don't have the number and I can easily get it but I think the first round was twice as big as the Super Bowl in terms of handle like that's how much demand there is there for the tournaments. Like I said, I think something in the rounds of $16 million in handle for the Saint Peter's game without the ability to be able to bet on that and it's all stays. That's unreal. So yeah, you're talking huge huge numbers on these games. I think we have probably 2 million in handle on some of the weekend's games already. Have you guys seen an uptick this week in terms of player props? I mean, I know there's different ways to attack these markets and certainly some people are still entering some of the futures markets with four teams remaining, but sometimes kind of pulling out a specific player to score the most points for the remainder of the final four, be the most valuable player in the final four where as opposed to taking someone like duke on the futures price at like plus one 50, you can get Ben Caro at three to one some places to be the MVP of the final four. Have you seen an uptick in action at all this week in terms of player props? Yeah, I think that's right. And I think it's an express in the exact manner that you mentioned. We talk about it all the time and the money line in the Super Bowl.

Vanderbilt university has rebranded themselves with a new logo. They're still the Vanderbilt commodores and they're still a great school, but what used to be what they call the star V, which is just basically a block V with a star around it is now gone for a different style V a lot of people are saying it looks like the University of Virginia logo, which is a V with crossed swords, or it looks like Villanova's V logo. I don't know how you brand a particular letter, although with that said, my company intensity media has used the I with an exclamation point as branding for 20 years. But for a major university to rebrand everything they do after so many years of using the same logo, was kind of shocking to a lot of people. That has got a lot of people upset. Now, of course, if you're a Vanderbilt alum, you probably have more of an allegiance to the old logo. But for Vanderbilt, the only thing that's changed, not the colors, not the people, just the logo.

"I fly. No sleep. cold shower? I mean, it's awful. Miserable. Miserable. Like, two minutes, get it done. Oh, it was a disaster. But kids wanted to jump all over me. You gotta, you know, gotta get our Sunday Night, wrestling in. There's just so funny. But I hear you, I hear you loud and clear. I also love this idea that with the YouTube streams now, they're broken up into segments and someone's like, you know, Gonzaga, Texas, I don't check that after. I'm going to go to know for UCLA first, so they click over on the bar and Paris is like let me give you some parenting advice right now, but it is highly appreciative and I trust me. I'm a reconsider that for next time. Johnny jus ang 25 points was awesome. There was a stretch, by the way, where it's certainly, I know it wasn't this exact number. It felt like the teams made a combined 14 straight baskets in the second half. Just the kind of thing and it's one of these double edged swords. We don't need to get into again why the game was on when it was on. Other contracts with other leagues and other sports, college basketball November is not going to take high priority. That's why the game was on so late. It's unfortunate because if this game was played at, say, Wednesday, and this is at ten o'clock at night or whatever. Man, what a wonderful advertisement to how much fun and efficient and entertaining college basketball can be during the regular season. They were incredible back and forth with all this stuff. And this was after UCLA good early. Nova actually went stronger late. In fact, if you go to the Ken pound box score, it breaks it down by quarters and it actually went like this. You still won the first ten minutes, 17 to 8. The nova won the next ten, 22 15 coming out of the second half. Nova one 27, 18, and then down the stretch to get it to OT. UCLA outscored him 1710, and then they had 19 and they had 19 points in the 5 minute bonus de novas, just ten there. And it was awesome. I thought Jules Bernard had a wonderful game. He's the guy we never talk about on UCLA. He had 16 on top of Tuesday's 25. I'm a hawk has had 21 on top of what 13 boards, three dimes there. Tiger Campbell had his moments. I talked about how Gonzaga showing up against Texas the way it did. I thought was important coming off of the Los against Baylor. For UCLA, that's the other team that was highly rated going into the season with a bit more bona fides after what it did. But podcast listeners know we talked about why that might not necessarily be the case after all that was an 11 seed going into the N subway tournament. It found fire and made it all the way to the final four. Hell of a win over another Villanova looked undersized and some of the ways that Texas didn't have the size to match up with Timmy. That was kind of the same deal here with nova now they overcame it as much as they possibly could. Jermaine Samuels had 20, Congress, we had at 18. Justin Moore, who is the best post player as a guard in the sport, I think by far, I mean, he'll post you to death. Nova did that a lot with UCLA. They just didn't quite have enough both teams to score more than a point per possession, which was huge. And they combined for what 23s from beyond the arc there. So what do you want me to say? Wonderful win for UCLA to get that at home, validate that preseason number two ranking. It also helped set up hopefully for when the Gonzaga UCLA game happens in less than two weeks that will be a number one versus number two matchup, which we get every so often. It's not super rare, but yeah, come on now. Game of the weekend was awesome. It's unfortunate ended almost a two a.m. on the east coast there. I was fortunate enough to be watching it on the West Coast when it wasn't brutally brutally late, but it was still late. And oh, by the way, last thing and then it's all yours. I love that necron and rock the suit. If you want to wear the suit, that was one thing one of the Texans assistants were saying they're like, wait a second. You got Jay Wright in this game, not going with suit Mick cronin's going. It's kind of like, what are we doing? I love it. If you want to wear the suit coaches, I think it's a good look. If you want to go casual, I got nothing against that, but I like the suit look and I like Mick cronin really going against the grain here while most of the coaches as we're still technically in the dumbest pandemic of our lifetimes are going the casual look. The cronin rocks the suit and gets the win. I don't think that's a coincidence. I feel like her J say that they're going casual this season, and he was like, this might be my one opportunity to out dress Jay Wright. On television. That's right. I'm just gonna take advantage of it. And he did look good. You look good. All staffed at. You're right. You mentioned Justin Moore posting up. Like, I feel like they used to do that with Jalen Brunson all the time too. Am I remembering that correctly? Yes. Yeah. Like I remember Brunson being really good at scoring down there on the block, which was always interesting, given that he was a small point guard. Yeah. Do you think was not terrible, but inefficient in the first half? One of 9 I think. So if you wanted to find him as terrible in that first 20 minutes, I think that's fair. And then you just got.

"Not much more than nothing. It's funny because like I have jokingly after Gonzaga's first win was like, are we sure like the national player of the year is even the best player on his own team? And I was half joking, but actually wondering because Hong kon turned in that historically great stat line in his college debut. You know, the first player in 25 years to get at least in points ten rebounds 5 blocks pop assistant is division one debut. And obviously, by the time you go to sleep on Saturday night, you're like, ah naan. Yeah, the national player of the year is the best player on his own team. He was awesome. But Hong Kong did nothing and like, how about this? Two points 5 rebounds two blocks. Paolo bank care will never have a game like that. Ever. Are you concerned at all at home going to have one like that? No, I did talk afterward with you about that. Few is insistent that yeah, like offensively, just they didn't need them either. But the way he put it was, like, he puts, he fills every bucket is how he's how he said it. And he was like, defensively, he did alter and he did. He did alter some stuff on that end of the floor, but he just didn't have a 6 or 8 block game, and he didn't command a ton of rebounds. And, you know, it was his first game ever against a team with real grown men, like a legitimate team. That's the point I was making as I was sitting here with my wife watching it on Saturday night. This is the first time he's ever played against people like this. First time I ever played with people, he's never played against people like this in his whole life. And he looked ineffective. Now, that doesn't mean, listen, he's still going to be a top 5 pick. He's still going to be a very good college basketball player. But in his first game against high major basketball talent, he was rendered not completely useless, but something close to it. Yeah, I certainly I certainly noticed it. I thought Gonzaga's when was all the more impressive because of it, they were able to do that and not need double digit points, double digit rebounds, 30 plus minutes. And four, 6, 7 blocks from home run. Just didn't need it. It wasn't a requirement. If you didn't play a minute, they still wouldn't want to easily there. So I thought that was all the more impressive to talk to you about it afterward. And no concern and not a ton of I got to say probably not a ton of surprise from the staff on this. They just did, you know, he's extremely he's a super tough player, which I know it sounds weird to hear that when you look at how he's built, he doesn't look like anyone else. But he really isn't having talked to him. He's certainly got that. But he'll I mean, as we record this Monday morning, Gonzaga has got to turn around and play alcorn state on Monday night. And who, like, maybe he'll go for maybe 11 absurd game against alcorn state. I don't know. But it's a good team to have an game against. They sort of set you up for that. They do. They do. So we'll see. I don't think every big game they play he'll have that kind of showing. Just give them give them some more reps. But I'm glad you brought it up because we didn't. And he's a highly touted prospect and one of the more well known players already in the sport because of how good of a recruit he was. And the style of play he has and the fact that he's 7 two and does what he does. So anyway, yeah, it was a good sign for Gonzaga. They were that good, and they needed nothing from him. So the other big game of the weekend, it was UCLA Villanova. We're gonna get into that one next. But first, check this out. So the other big game of the weekend it was UCLA Villanova final score, UCLA 86 Villanova 77 in overtime. I'm assuming you watch this one in your hotel room. I watched it from the CBS broadcast center in. Oh boy, we were getting tired in there. It was late. Much easier to watch that game on the West Coast than in the Eastern Time zone. Yeah, I watched this from I watched this in the proper and whatever you want to call it with beard and company there. And it was, yeah, I actually thought about you. Back on the east coast, 'cause that game ended almost almost at two a.m. Eastern Time, I believe. Yes. You got a late night inside college basketball show like a 30 minute show that re airs throughout the night and through the next morning. So we have to wait on that game. And every 30 minutes that that game wasn't over after our late game was over, we have to redo the a block. You know, to make it live. So we had to redo the a block like three times. And at one point, stove or Brent's over. Was like, you know, and so GP now we're at, you know, it's a UCLA four point lead in overtime. Johnny Zhang's got whatever he's got. GP, what more could you ask for? And I was like, for the game to be over. Stove, I'm tired. It's two o'clock in the morning. I was just happy I booked an afternoon flight so that I didn't have to and by the way, you gotta learn to be better than that. You can not book those 6 a.m. flights. I had to be home to see the kids. Let me give you a parenting tip.

We just thought we were going to be true to who we are. Your fan base. Take that okay where you maybe you. Sacrifice ranking stars or whatever and recruiting for better fit.

That's a. that's a great question robin glen. I can address that. I always say i was so biased. Did this is the. This is the best coaching job calls. It has because everybody on campus tears. Villanova villanova basketball basketball's been good. Go back to the fifties. It's not every coach. Here's ben so you look at the records ball coaches.

"Wind up getting fired because we're not going to recruit this way anymore. We're going to explain to guys what this program is about. We're going to get guys that fit the villain of culture and if we can do it, we'll get this thing going again. If we can't we'll probably get fired, but if we're going to go down, let's go down true to our culture. And then we're very fortunate we got Ryan Archie Jackson and Daniel chapter that next year. And we never thought we were going to win a national championship. We just thought we were going to be able to true to who we are. Did your fan base take that okay? Were you maybe you sacrificed ranking stars or whatever and recruiting for a better fit? Because I know that's always hard. There's an expectation and certainly as a coach, you block that out, but it is there. Was it hard for them to take that? You know what, that's a great question, Robbie. I'm glad I can address that. You know, I always say and obviously I'm biased. This is the best coaching job in college basketball. It is because everybody on campus cares at Villanova cares about don't all the basketball. And the only basketball has been good going back to the 50s. It's not every coach here has been. If you look at the records of all the coaches, every coach has been successful every single one because everything on this campus revolves around basketball. And but you also have an educated fan base. You're in a pro town where they love their college basketball. They love that the guys graduate in four years. So they get that unique combination. We have here. So to your question, they did get that, you know? And they actually got and I never really went into depth with this, but they might have figured out what we figured out before we did. They might have been looking at our team and saying, this is not, you know, you guys are winning games, but this is not a villain of a basketball culture. We got going here. We'll take the wins, but this is not what we're used to. So when we did go back to it, they really did get it..
