"Like they've got to a point where it feels like some of the guys that come in are like designated offense the players in other guys designated defensive players in like Xavier Simpson's the only guy trying to play both. But he can't shoot. Yeah. One offense of move is a hook shot. It's kind of weird. Yeah. It's never good. When like the point guard shot his Goto shot as a hook shot. I mean, I guess it works out. But yet. It's I I'm not I'm not necessarily worried about I'm I am worried about what you're saying. Just like the offense of side of things where they've had to turn overs. And then they can score the points that it's sort of like re Virginia Tech and Michigan sort of similar to me where they they can't hurt themselves because they can't score at a level at a clip to make up for those mistakes. They have games where they have high turnovers. They can't score themselves. They can't shoot themselves out of a kind of thing. And so, yeah, I that's the only that's the only hold up, but Michigan has the defense where they can play ugly game and beat you by playing good defense and being able to get a little, you know, transition bucket stuff like that to to sort of get some wins. But I'm I'm more worried about Charles Mathews than probably anyone else in the country because I thought that he was going to have his national player of the year round this year, and it has not quite been that way. But maybe catches magic in late February March and gets on run like he did last year because we know Michigan after the plane ride. They're all about the big ten tournament. So we'll see what he was killed in the non conference like he played well yet here Lonnie played delegates Villanova. He's just kind. Kind of fallen out. You're not you're not the only ones worried about them. There's there's there's this guy on Twitter that I shouldn't even acknowledge because he's gonna jerk off to me saying this. But. This Twitter this gone on Twitter. When I said the Charles Matthews is the best player everyti- like every single Michigan game, you'll semi Charles Mathews like shooting line..

"App. I'm Chris Villani in the studio number five Michigan hosting Ohio State tonight in Ann Arbor. The wolverines looking for their third win in a row and trying to get to twenty victories overall on the season. Just the one blemish against Wisconsin. For Ohio State picked up a much needed victory against a Brassica on Saturday that snapped a five game losing streak, but could the buckeyes keep it going. Well, Ohio State jumped out to an early lead in this one. But the wolverines playing at home star. Freshman Tilton get the lead back gives it back to square three overshot the rim, right. Into the arms of Xavier Simpson. He'll bring it right down the middle of the floor right side Brodsky's catching. Michigan thirty twenty twenty-six unbelievable with the three point shot. How quickly to come together? Iggy. Bras, Dake is gives Michigan the lead. And they're up by six at the half. Thirty two to twenty six wolverines have the advantage in the second half. They pour it on wolverines front court Simpson on the right wing pass those to his left seats. Three. Jordan triple the biggest. At that point the game well in hand for Michigan. But still a chance for wolverines guards Xavier Simpson to pick up a little bit of history late in the second half. He's got eleven points, twelve assists and nine rebounds. So at the top. Puts it on the deck, drives floated out there. Sex. History. Let's.

"Basketball come quickly here. And I did get a chance to see Michigan up close and just to kind of couple quick thoughts on their roster. Obviously, they're they're built more to play great defense than they are offense ones Xavier Simpson became their point guard. It changed them forever. Knight put you know Xavier Simpson and Charles Mathews and Jordan pool in a backward. And John task is a really good rim-protector. He's averaging like two and a half blocks game and bras steak is is not a bad defender as a freshman, man. He's a big physical body. But if he's your worst defender on the floor like and. Yeah, really well coached like that's a good defensive team. And then you also have livers, and you know, they're using Brooks a little bit. So you get a little bit more of a scoring punk point guard thought Austin Davis did a decent job against Wisconsin. What's what's interesting? Bras day kiss is a guy who eventually who eventually will probably will be an NBA player. I don't think it'll be this year. I think it'll be next year. But he's big enough to be one of these hybrid guys. He's pretty athletic. He six seven to fifteen w a little bit. Better shooter got understand shots, like slow more. He endured poor fantastic people are on to Jordan pool because. He's job so much against Wisconsin. Prazegas was invalid trouble was kind of a no show, and you know, Simpson made some shots and made some plays. But he's not a score. They just I'm not convinced. They have enough scoring Matthews is a really good kind of mid range pull up guy. But he. Is not a pure score. It's fascinating to see the transformation of John beeline. His team from being like unguardable in terms of their offense their movement their spacing to being one that has to generate offense of their defense. And they turn the ball over a bunch against Wisconsin. The one thing about Xavier Simpson, which is interesting, and I experienced a little bit of this when you get into college and and team stop garden you and then you make shots and now they are guarding you. You'll lose your.

"Hey, welcome back to inside the house. Tomorrow will be live on location at Crispin Chevrolet in Salinas and come down and hang out with us corner. State and Michigan avenue Friday. We will feature Charles Woodson on our game of my life beginning at ten thirty. We'll also get into some NFL playoff talk around twelve o'clock having to lock down, our guests will be who. Did you have you guys lights so far? Did you like Chris last week? Chris Burke, I think Chris was he was great last week. Yeah. I appreciate it. I thought he did a nice job is very informative. I think with all the stuff they had brought up leading into last week's divisional match ups. I think he. I'd like to have them back. He was he was a good guess that you guys that we had last week. And I think if he comes down with you guys Crispin be it'd be Friday Friday Friday Friday. Okay. I'm sorry. I'm I'm looking at tomorrow, partly I'm sorry. Yeah. That's okay. Tomorrow. We will have Chris young to talk some Michigan basketball. And speaking of which we were talking about this limit earlier, slight pause delay. Was we talked to Bill Bunder? But again, this matchup with zebra Simpson and caches Winston. And so have you puts a year ago Xavier Simpson shutdown cashless Winston. And if the question right now is who's the better point guard? If you take okay, I'm not going to tell you that you're wrong. If you say Xavier Simpson, but I do think that most. Beat writers analysts would probably give a slight edge to caches Winston right now from Michigan state. But here's a here's a alternate question. That comes from that is when these two teams match up in late February early March. Do you have more? Do you think it's more likely that Xavier Simpson just puts the shackles on cash Winston yet again and really shots him down. And that leads to at least one maybe two victories for the wolverines. Or is it more like the caches Winston gets his this year that he's evolved is that type of player that offensively. He's gonna put up some points. And that could ultimately lead to I don't know that this game alone will come down to that point guard spot. Zero-sum doesn't have to have fifteen compared to cash is his twelve or eighteen compared to his fifteen. But I certainly I if if as what Zach said that, you know, cash Winston runs the ship and everything goes through him more. So than maybe everything goes through Xavier. If you can't take him out of the game. You've got a really good chance to be successful in both these contests here going forward. When I look at it. I think at the. I think it's. Caches is probably a little more motivated. Now, I'd be curious to be a beat writer and to be in those conversations last year. If you wanted to talk about the intangibles the intangibles a year ago belong to save your Simpson he was disregarded. It was about cash. It's Winston Xavier went out there with a gigantic chip on his shoulder and certainly Xavier Simpson plays with a chip on shoulder all the time. But I wonder if that is negated now by the fact that caches Winston is probably had to hear about it and live through it for a year about how he did get locked up by Xavier and whether that then tilts that matchup back in his favor. If you take away that intangible quality, you take away Xavier can't just win with attitude. Does it favor. The more talented overall player in caches Winston. That's where I'm leaning right now. I don't think caches goes out there and scores twenty twenty five. But I don't think that if we're expecting is, you know, Michigan fans are expecting Xavier to have the same type of success that he did against cash is a year ago. I don't think that's realistic either. Well, I think the big ten tournament stat line is realistic. I mean when when I game, I think it was the caches got school. But you know, I don't think CASAs Winston was the weak link in that big ten tournament game eleven points on nine shots, you know, five assists in one turnover. That was okay. You know their team with their team got shut down. But in Xavier Simpson definitely got the better the matchup, but you know. It sounded like it was like some house of horrors deal. You know, like like when Castres went to an Arbor, I think Derek Walton was on fears back his freshman year that was like a house of horrors. Thank you had like, I wanna say he had like zero points and four turnovers. So I mean, you know, this stuff I'd say three points and six turnovers. When he came his one time to Ann Arbor can make it tricky. But I think the difference is that one eleven points in the big ten tournament think it's not so bad. He scored fewer than eleven points twice this year. And both times he had at least six assists hit eighteen combined assists in those two games in three turnovers. So he's he's a different kind of player, and he's transformed into the the centerpiece a little bit more. I don't think. I don't know like he's like the only option so Xavier is on his game. You know, he can pass it elsewhere. But I think last year he was he was more of a complementary piece two miles bridges and well when Tom Izzo played him. Jaren Jackson wasn't playing Ben Carter. Yeah. Exactly. So. I think he's I think it's just going to be a good match up. I don't think it's going to be you know, as you say cast, isn't I would assume isn't just going to go off. And I don't think he's going to like have some like total meltdown game. I think it's probably going to be you know, I think it's going to be a really good game that comes down to these possessions. And it's going to be like, I could see a stat line of like, you know, ten twelve points four or five assists three or four turnovers for caches. Yeah. Which is like kind of inbetween this these two parallels. I just I don't if you're asking me, which one's more likely Simpson dominates or caches dominates. I think I think at the at the present center, I think it's going to be more likely caches does just because you know, that's where he is his home court. I think if in Ann Arbor, though, I think you know, the one thing that does translate regardless of where you are though defense translates before offense. Sure. And so that gives a Xavier's really consistent. I think that's something that people kind of forget about the he's not like a, you know in that that comes with the defense. I will say this though. And if you go back and watch those two games as much credit as abra Simpson deserves caches Winston also missed open shots. I mean, he and the big ten tournament was over four from three pointer and. You know, I r- I remember at least a couple of them are I think two of them lease Rifaat. That's a pretty good open three pointer that he makes one of them. He's got fourteen in five game. He makes two of them. He's having a really a game. And were we're not talking about. So I wonder if a little bit of were a little bit of nostalgia a little bit of certainly Michigan one. And so they have final bragging rights, but maybe a little bit too much like Xavier Simpson. Just absolutely took him out of his game and shut him down. And he was the final stat line looks like that. Let's to the final stat line doesn't I do think. I remember watching that game. And being like man cast is can't seem to get anything going. But maybe maybe you know, when I was watching I was seeing Michigan state in general couldn't get anything going and thinking that starts and ends with caches. So I don't know. But who has a better chance to have success on those two days as caches have greater chance to be successful running his type of game against saber Simpson or Xavier Simpson have a better chance to shutdown caches Winston when those two teams meet up late February again in March seven three four nine nine eight ten fifty I'll tell you. I'm excited about the match up. I I can't I can't wait to see it again. I think the first Xavier is a little bit of a and maybe he takes this. You know, he can listen to show right now and use it for to put on his to put on his shoulder. But. His fingers last time they had to scout cast us. I mean, it's the Kennedy Kennedy sustained like, can you look how many times have you seen someone that? Just absolutely was a a shutdown on one particular guy like got him every time. I just don't know that it's sustainable just keep on getting the better off. You don't think cast his watched? What Simpson does? I mean. That's you know, you scout the defense to it's. Yeah, you're right. You're right. It might be tough. I because then they used to have someone that did put on you. We've had people in the past. They put that guy in LeBron. And they put that guy in Kobe, always the Kobe Kobe killer. Like Kobe would have maybe have twenty games, and like ten of them he'd score in the thirties and the other one he would score or like, you know, somewhere between fifteen and eighteen the guys the Kobe killer. And it's like well, but he gets his it's not like he he gets shut down every single game by the guy. So I just don't know that it's going to be that. It's I guess all I'm trying to say is if there's a certain expectation from Michigan fans that Xavier's go out there, and it's gonna be like, easy pickings. And and he's just gonna he's going to be the the the blanket that cash doesn't do anything. And that's going to be the difference. I just don't know if that's a realistic expectation for this particular season. Yeah. It just seems like I mean, again cast is his scored fewer than eleven points twice a year. And all and they were both games. Michigan state overall had good games, you know. So he's. Yeah. I think he's a different kind of player. I maybe I'm wrong. I don't know. It's hard. It's really hard to tell and that's gonna make the next month and a half really fun and entertaining in that. No one knows what's going to happen in Michigan in Michigan say play. They knows. I'm a little annoyed that they don't play until February. What day is it twenty fourth? I kinda like it do you? Yes. This up. I mean, you know, I think Detroit News made their predictions that Michigan. Michigan state would be fifteen in one in big ten play that point. And it's like could you imagine if they're I mean those buildings and and then the finale. You know, I believe it's is that one's in east Lansing. Yeah. The finale that could be decided in the big ten title. I mean, the the roof is going to blow off of these places. It's so cool. Yeah. That's that's one of those things. My favorite thing about my job is getting to be getting to tell the story of those atmospheres, and like those those kind of events, so I can't wait. I don't mind that there's more and more build up because the injury is really exciting. I mean, you could have the Michigan Michigan state debate. I could run a whole show while I mean, we certainly as we get closer to that that week that February probably like seventeenth th twenty four th we'll certainly talk a lot about it. Maybe we'll do something special for that. Especially if they are fifteen and one bowl into or both ranked in the top ten I mean, we'll we'll go out there and get former players on both sides and bring them in. And and it's it is exciting. I I'm kind of Jones on fort right now. Like, I wish Michigan was. Playing Michigan state say February second. I want to now. Just like fast forward through August. I know I know man shooter is not patient. Ms, I think doesn't move very fast. Yeah. The misbehave scooter. Missile scooter. All right. This is gonna last down Brian. Oh god. What does it come to? All right. When we come back. We'll finish up with our final six on six of today. This Stockton fifty W ticket. Beat the man.

"Much worse do you think they are than Michigan right now? None. So basically. You're saying that Michigan has two players better than anybody else. Michigan has if you call this even means it Michigan has two players better than anybody. Michigan state has or you're saying caches Winston is a superior player. I know what you mean. And here's the thing. You know, I I understand defense is really hard to quantify. So it's hard, and that's probably where Michigan state fans are maybe a little bit more. Like, this is a dumb question or whatever because it's like cash is averaging seventeen and a half and seven and a half, seven and a half assists. He leads the nation in assists percentage. Corny college basketball reference. You know, he he seventh in the big ten in scoring. David Simpson is I believe second in the big ten in assists. But he's like, you know, fortieth in scoring or whatever it is in. So so there's no like what's your? I mean there's defensive rating, but it's really hard to sit here and say, yeah, that's that's something that Xavier Simpson has the cash doesn't. So I get where it can be tricky. But I think when you look at like who's driving the bus, Kansas. Winston is driving the bus savior Simpson. I think can drive the bus, but he's not the only driver. So it's hard for me to sit here and say, oh, well, this is a toe to toe battle and then cash is. A little bit more a little different level. If if they play twice as here and both times zebra Simpson goes out there and shuts down caches Winston game and throws him off in Michigan wins. Are we even having the question? We're having right now. What's the remember? The you repeat the phrasing of the question is who is the best point guard in the state of Michigan. Yeah. So I think if if if Simpson. Schools caches again because it happened last year. I think there were I I don't know that it's going to happen. This year, though, if it happens again. Then. Yeah, I think I think you can sit here and say Simpson's probably best point guard. I mean, he's probably going to be whoever plays better in those two games actually wins this battle. But I think it's it's unfair to discredit the growth caches has made this year 'cause he you know, his he had good numbers last year. I think he's a great player this year. There's great numbers than there's great players. I think he's I think he's made that step. So we'll see I mean, it certainly makes the those those two matchups in February March really really interesting because it's loud online. They're here is maybe a flip side of that question. Is do you have more confidence? In those two matchups that Xavier Simpson will shutdown caches Winston or the caches. Winston will prevail over Xavier Simpson. Hold onto that will come back. We talked to Bill bender from sporting news. And we'll tackle that saw that question after we talked to Bill Bennett this sports talk. Ten fifty WT ticket..

"But Xavier Simpson with the way that he plays defense. I think there's almost a little bit of this of an under value of what he brings defensively because of a lot of the responses I saw were almost all about while. How many points is abra Simpson. Average look at what caches Winston does is a score. And there's a shooter there's so much better than Xaver Simpson. And I think there's such this this belief that offense offense offense, dictates everything and we moved to it. But the type of team that Michigan is and the type of team really that. Even Michigan state us. You know is in and continues to aspire to be his I don't think this is an easy as well. Because caches is a better offensive player in score in today's college basketball that makes him like significantly better than Xavier Simpson. The the defense in the leadership of the intangibles. And I know you're not you haven't dismissed that. I think the in terms of making passes I think in terms of how he settles his team during some critical moments. You could make a case for Xavier. I will be really curious to watch. How his how his shooting and scoring continue to evolve. I think if you literally asked right now if it was just about right now in this moment. You would you would probably take caches Winston. But a year ago, I would've taken Xavier Simpson. Taking them at the end of the year. And in a couple of months, I might take Xavier Simpson again. Because of how hard he works. His shot is never going to be natural. But if he can if he can improve those numbers, and he can shoot a little bit more from. I don't even see the three point range levels of the most open shots. He gets. If he can just be a little bit more consistent. I think you can he can really make the case because of the defense the leadership the intangibles he brings, but as as many have said they're perfect for both institutions right now. But I find it a little crazy that that so many at least in my Twitter feed, so many green and white has openly dismiss it. As like Xavier is doesn't measure up at all. Especially when so many year ago were were hey, I wish we had Xavier Simpson on our team. I wish they were Simpson was our point guard and how quickly that gets forgotten. But it does show you the team to cast is. Yeah, any well. Think about this. Let's let's do this. Where does Simpson rank among Michigan's best players right now. Well, have you actor in yesterday probably third? Okay. Where does caches Winston rank as far as Michigan state's best players? Probably. I. Michigan state how.

"Maybe you've seen them. Maybe you haven't seen them. But let's introduce you to some. And it's crap in my opinion. I'll tell you this right now, I'm gonna bad mood to begin. Doc, it's better than a grumpy square. Where's George Jon Morgan and look as as twenty-five long way finished or are you gonna come in here? And not let me finish. Let me finish. I look and I see Jordan Murphy on it. Hey, how about you win a game? Jordan Murphy, come out. She can he do self. So what win a game has every college coach, and I've talked to and said James Palmer James how about winning the game? How about where the game fellas? Jon Morgan, if you're gonna put Langford on there, then you should put you on Morgan ahead Lankford because you on Morgan has been better than Langford on both ends of the cord all year long. He's come a big in big spots and the guys coming in from the big ten none of them. None of other than Carson Edwards. Iggy maybe deserve to be on this list at one or cash. Winston absolutely catches Winstons the first team all American and he's by preseason player of the year. And I won't change that for anything. But I'm just telling you win a freaking game. These guys in the big ten is supposed to be so good. And then I look and they don't ever win a game. The winner doesn't have to come from this list. Old people. I think until the final eight right coach before he was finally put on that list. So the Winterton come from outside. So it's just a discussion point that were have trae Joneses. And on the list, can you put three players from one team on the list because trade Jones one of the top twenty five players in the country. The ways plan he's one of the top twenty five most important players in the country. I mean like there's a distinction. I love trae Jones. I love Xavier Simpson. I love Jordan bone. I love those guys really important to their teams. All right. So what is the wooden ward signify? Besides having to have a certain GPA and all that other stuff that they could good on in the classroom, all that stuff. And you gotta have Sam Gilbert around and his drink. I mean, I mean that sounds good. And I'm a big trade. I think he's important for the team. But I mean, I don't think he should be on that list. Seth here's what I would say. This is why I told you specifically who when you add somebody if you say trae Jones is supposed to be on. Then you gotta take somebody off. Right. I mean, that's kind of how it works. And that's why I say what I said about Jon Morgan that I would put him on and take people. I'm not sure I wouldn't put trae Jones on there. I'm not sure that I would I don't know. But I know this those two guys that are on that list for Duke if they weren't on Duke. I'm not sure trae Jones would be carrying Duke like those two guys are kind of carrying Duke. I made no sense right there. But I, but that's where I agree with you. See I think trae Jones is a connector, and he makes the gate look. He's a great defender. I mean that dude can Flatgaard. Yeah. I mean like, you know, Jordan Boca Flatgaard Xavier Simpson. We talk about. Yeah. Michigan all the time. I mean, look, he, you know, he's not as dynamic Jordan, poor and everytime, you shoot you think it's going in. Right. I mean that dude is like ridiculously good. You know Matthews can guard and this guy that, but they wouldn't be as good if you took Xavier Simpson off, but I'll say this..

"And how you communicate with your your your players. And and you know, can the journey's just beginning and us special things are happening Connecticut. Thanks so much for joining us and good luck against the coach bay. This is the first time he's coached in the garden. Correct. Second time last time, I beat beat Kemba high school winners at rice and. Oh. Yeah. Yeah. Right. Same on young camonte young the youngest sister at rice and guy got Ken, but that day. So you know, it was that was good. So we can come. Good luck. Bye. Thanks daddy. That's good stuff. He's you know, he's just a coach. I mean, you know, I mean like, you watch them practice they had and he's just he's just a ball coach that he's been around at his whole life it and loves to kids, and because loves to catch are so passionate about everything they're doing on and off the court. I mean the first time he got upset with him yesterday. Basically, his message wise, if you're a loose here, you're going to be loose. You know, getting like the class could be loosening in take Harrier assignment. It'd be loosening other aspects of your life. The whole thing comes together, and you've got to be accountable for every aspect of your life and not I had a black. I'm serious. You don't like when you go to practice and just kind of draws you in. Yeah. How yesterday was for me? People don't realize Danny early coach tears Smith, man. Yeah. Jim one day when he worked out. Larry's it's all about you. All about you. Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait ya. It's all about me until we sign off. And then it's about you and a lovely Ross. But until then about. It's interesting Fran for shell at one of his mentors. I think that's a great article that people can go about Danny in the post. It's really good it talks about his depression. And how it got through it? And it's a great lesson that he was so open to you. Let people understand that you know, you can bounce back. You can recover we talked about that the other day about what you know, what the game that loves so much. Whether it's coaching is a player can do to you in and and dealing with it and trying to get through those type of things great art. What the article down, and I suggest anyone to chance to read it because it's not just basketball. It's life. Now gate. We got a couple of big time games up the next few nights. So let's go to little pick him what you have for escape. So tonight Wednesday night at six thirty eastern. We've got a title rematch with number eighteen Michigan and number eight Villanova who do you guys have, Dan. I this is a game of who. Don't we have any more in our program bench? Zo Spelman bridges Brunson for Villanova, obviously, Wagner Dunkin Robinson. I like Villanova really only because they're playing at home. I think Michigan doesn't shoot the ball yet. They'll shoot it. Even a little bit yet. Now two guys Matthews and Xavier Simpson Xavier Simpson be defensive player of the year and the big ten and get after you. But said, I just don't I believe in culture, I believe in next guy for championship programs. We already detailed how good it what the guys are. Doing villanova. I just don't think Michigan's ready to make enough shots to beat Villanova on the road. I don't think the good enough shooters is that they're just not sure where the shots come from this. I just don't think they have. They don't have guys in Matthews is in his short Scott Simpson. Matthews can't make shots Paul can make some shots, but he can guard who test ski can't make shots, but he can go. Yeah. He's a big guy inside and fish interesting to be a light livers live. I can never say the name. Right. He's he if he can if he can stretch it a little bit go around, you know, he's got experience plays a four hip play some five two different times. If they go small, but I just don't think, you know. I just don't see guys out there that can drill. Mohammed Abdul Rochman was big last year, man. And he ain't there. So I I liked if it was at Michigan. I might take Michigan. But on the road. I'll take Villanova has been really good pass. Cows been terrific. I'm interested to see if Simpson the fans Glaspie and tries to get after them and disrupt them or Simpson defends boo..

"Bogner and matthews is not going to be enough you have got to get stella god play tonight in order to have the chance every big time upset that i've seen in a national championship or national semifinal level coach in college basketball has been predicated on god play that has to half the brunson that's why the answer is brunson like that this is one you'd let us assume he's going to do what he always wanting you don't have to over that gets brunson that's the most important guy on the florida going coach steve steve here's the deal i agree with the simpson but i disagree with on how he played last game yet he didn't make shots him in dirac mont didn't make shots they didn't make a three i think there were two for seventeen for field but when the game was decided at the end of the game those two guys were locked down their ability to guard the basketball xavier simpson's got to be able to defend keep in front of so jalen brunson he's got a defend in the low post without help because if you double down on brinson if you double down on bridges you know what's going to happen villanova good better best they're going to get that thing reversed and bam they're gonna knock down and open three you've got to take away the three so xavier simpson's ability not offense really yes stephen a he can't turn the ball over michigan as a team can't turn it over they turned it over in the first half against florida state they turned it over in the first half against the law and ola you do that against villanova and give them extra possessions game over but.
