Tommy Lloyd Is the Next Coach at Arizona
"Matt. Norlander is here with me in. Arizona has found shaun miller's replacement deadline when we talked about this after shawn miller was fired. We went through a list of candidates. And i think we sort of settled on the end of the day. I think it's going to be a gonzaga associate head coach. Tommy lloyd or former arizona star current pacific head coach damon stoudamire fast forward to today. It is tommy lloyd. He is leaving gonzaga. He will be the next head coach of the wildcats. Your thoughts. yeah. We have a listen. We have a long time coach in waiting for program legend. Who's been there decades deciding to leave and and and take a job in the pac twelve and It's mike hopkins all over can don't just kidding. But the parallels are actually there will credit an unnamed person. We both know who who made that to made. That comparison this i think is a pretty good higher now. This has been buzzed about. Since before shawn miller got fired. I have talked to a couple of people out for your. Oh quick i get your thoughts on it. There are a couple of people i've talked to. Who will never be not convinced. That tommy lloyd was approached about this like a month ago and basically said we want you to be the next coach in gonna fire shawn miller. I'm not saying that happened. I'm telling you there are people that believe this and this has been wired for a long time now. There were a couple of days here the past couple of days where the search kind of went on a not a pause but they topped the brakes through more interviews. That happened on tuesday. And they did legitimately interview miles. Simon damon stoudamire. Jason terry josh passenger. All these people were interviewed. There's a belief that eric muscleman whose doors to get himself his own new contract which if true or not. I don't think he needed arizona to get paid the way he got paid. But good on him. So
The case for Baylor at No. 1 over Gonzaga
"The only respectful way to begin. This episode is by recognizing that scott drew baylor bears formerly known. As bill henderson's baylor bears improved a seventeen on the season tuesday night with an eighty-three sixty nine victory at texas. They outscored the longhorns. By seven in the first half they outscored the longhorns. By seven in the second half as a result baylor otherwise known as terry eagles alma mater is now seventeen and fifteen. Double digit wins. The bears are number one at kim palm. Their number one in the net. they are awesome undeniably. Norlander your turn to talk about baylor. Are you going to spend the next few minutes showing proper respect for the first lady of baylor basketball or are you going to once again disrespect. Kelly drew got drew. Plus mackenzie payton brody. Not to mention homer and janet price and tara dana and her husband. Casey bryson anna isaiah caleb. In luke plus drew barrymore drew carey. Drew brees drew bledsoe. Dr drew drew. Gooden andrew mcintyre how are you gonna handle this moment. bryce doesn't care does care. He'd bryce doesn't care. I talk to about it. He doesn't care. How are you going to atone for the fact that you still have a number one. I mean. I think it's disrespectful at this point. Daily top twenty five and one. After what i saw last night. I got baylor number one. But you don't and you disrespect the entire through family. And every drew. She has to drew mcgarry as well. You're disrespecting them all you've got number two. I think you're the one who needs to explain himself. I actually can't explain myself. And i do get asked this every day. I saw strong joe last night trying to make the case that baylor should be number one and i let it be clear. I won't argue with anybody that says baylor should be number. One baylor at this moment has a better resume than gonzaga. Got six quarter on lindsay. Does eggs only have five. Baylor is got the best adjusted efficiency margin in the country and one of the best of all time at this point. If you wanna if you wanna put baylor number one it is fine with me. It's just. I think we've talked about this. Before i made a rule a longtime ago i will not drop number one team unless it loses the only time i made an exception i went and looked it. Up is two seasons ago. Kansas was number one in the top twenty five and one to open the season. Kentucky might have been to. Duke was in the top five somewhere and do zion williamson cameras and remember the other one started with our allies and it was. It was whatever it doesn't matter. It doesn't rj barrett and so they went out and they just throttled kentucky on opening night at bankers life. And i just. I was even conflicted. Then because keynes's is just one and it was one zero and number one and i was like i don't feel silly not to have that duke team. That just did that to kentucky ranked number one. So i made an exception to the rule. Then but i've been ranking college basketball teams for better or worse for like more than fifteen years now and i've only dropped a number one team without losing one time and that is the example.
Michigan State's NCAAT chances kaput? Who winds up with No. 1 overall seed?
"On thursday night gonzaga beat san diego ninety sixty two so the top ring zags sixteen to no second ranked bears fifteen no deadly. Somebody asked me a question on twitter yesterday. So let me present it to you if zaka and baylor both inner selection sunday undefeated. Which team is the number. One overall seed in the ncaa tournament. I- address this exact thing in my power rankings. This week baylor's the number one overall seed. That's not going to be up for too much debate. I don't think baylor will have at that point. Accrued many more quad one wins and road wins tougher opponents in gonzaga. So i don't think it will be up for much debate and that's before you even get into the question of whether or not Those teams have not played in their league tournaments. I think you're right. The question was presented to me about the number one overall seed the instability tournament. And then about whether i would adjust the top twenty five and one and i will not adjust the top twenty five and one i if i will not drop gonzaga from number one unless it loses. And that's been one of my kinda rules since i've been doing this job. I don't punish number one teams unless they actually lose. The only time can remember. Doing it is win duke zairian cam and who was the other guy that played with them. Norlander see if you can remember this time that team duke zay on camera. tish yeah. He's from canada. Third third pick in the draft of first team. All american show trae jones. Trae jones was on that team. But it wasn't him jack white. It was not yet check why it was not the third pick. Javelin delory in the subsequent. Nba draft. His name was started with all our in the next letter was j. rj. They call him rj. Oh i think i've heard this guy You're gonna have to help me with the last name though. Rj bay. That's right that's right that's right. Yeah that was The yeah he was the other player on this. So that's the only time. I can remember dropping a number one team without the number one team. Losing just silly to have anybody other than duke number one after that performance against that opponent on that stage. So i've done it before. But i will not do it. In in this scenario to punish gonzaga without losing would be to punish them. Strictly on league affiliation. And i won't do that but that said you're exactly right. Both schools have five quadrant. One wins right now. But according to the net the current net rankings baylor has six more quad one opportunities in the regular season. Gonzaga has just one so baylor could end up and likely would end up with basically twice as many quad wins as gonzaga. So i agree with you on selection sunday. If both teams are undefeated baylor based on the resume would be number one overall seed regardless of whether the people and the top twenty five one or anything else actually reflects
Hawkeyes can't back up their lofty ranking, suffer humbling loss to Indiana
"Leg. I think we might need to revisit. The word realistic. The definition is as follows. Having were showing a sensible and practical idea of what can be achieved or expected. I bring this up because on wednesdays. Podcast i asked you if you believed indiana had a realistic chance to win at iowa on thursday night you said no. I said no. Just didn't seem like a sensible or practical idea of what can be achieved or expected and for at least three reasons. One iowa is clearly better than indiana in the season to iowa would have the best player on the court. In the form of luca garza an three iowa was inside carver. Hawkeye arena where it inner with a nine and record. Obviously you know what happened next score indiana iowa sixty nine not n- is roy j carver famed industrialists rolling over in his grave. Norlander what was it like for you to watch and unrealistic thing. Become a reality late thursday night. Miriam webster defines the word regret as sorrow aroused by circumstances beyond one's control or power to repair. That game was out of my control. It was out of your control of conduct or an event giving rise to regret undesirable unwelcome. And as that game played out and as it got into the second half. I thought this is interesting. This is look this indiana getting a good win. I was really going to take this loss all right. You know what this is. This'll be something good to talk about on the. Oh wait a second. What did we say at the end of the last podcast. We said too much did we. Did we call it a little too far. Yeah did i have someone tweet at me. A link to the definition of realistic. You bet your ass. I did congrats indiana fans although you might be super conflicted this morning here because obviously you want your team to do well. Obviously a decent portion of you just love basking self loathing when archie miller doesn't performance walls coaches. You'd like you got a good win here. This is the kind of win. That's gonna get you into the ncaa tournament. like i. i think the hoosiers someway somehow they're going to be in that incident tournaments if it's because of a win like this. Are you suggesting that was a cpap win was well. They're not maybe it was. How about a vaulting win. They might not have been in prior to this game. Get the win vaulted. And that's even better than the seat. Bump vault vault launch it right there like a catapult right over great job i indiana i gotta figure this is probably a top five win of the season considering iowa's a top five team in the metrics. It is a game on the road again even though it's not a true true wrote environment. It's still a so. This is one of the five wins and think anyone has had the season and india. It wasn't like the squeaked it out they got it done. They beat an iowa team that i checked late last night. I'll bring up right now. Yes i was still third at ken palm as we report this podcast on friday morning and the win by twelve so a wonderful job. Clearly you know. That's the kind of game if i speak to. The hawk is real quick. And you're right. I actually have in my notes cover. Hawkeye's rolling over in his nest. Not his grave. He's really covering his nest That defense there is obviously problematic for iowa. That's the that's the kind of game. Where whether you're a fan. Or just a bit of a skeptic of the hawkeyes early this is why i don't know if i can take them to get to the final four. I still can get there. It was just a disappointing performance. What you see on on thursday night and what was your primary take away. Okay let me tell you. I experienced this indiana comeback. So obviously we we. We have a new president now and the country has been an interesting place to live in recent weeks and a guy with the high school with who was like a genuinely good guy but we see the in completely different ways In probably every election of our our lives. I've voted one way. And he has voted another and so he reached out to me and he said hey. Listen i i want to try to better understand like i keep hearing people say you know you need to listen to other people and i want to try to understand in an and you can see if you would it. Be okay if i reached out to you every once in a while and say. Hey well what do you think about this. What do you think about that and he. Here's what i think about this. And what am i missing. And i thought it was like a sweet gesture and so i said sure. Of course i'd be happy to talk gone. Eleven biden voters chatty to you like that by the role of the roles are reversed. And i said you know what i of course and anytime you wondering why so. Why does gp think this way. Or why do i think this way. And you want to bounce off of me. And i'm here of course.
College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court
"I on thursday. Tupper beat six rate. Kansas ninety awesome performance and then on friday afternoon mark to the gonzaga coach. Confirm that the zags beat auburn on friday morning. Nine hundred sixty seven after a player believed to be julian straw. They're tested positive for covid. Nineteen so norlander. We're gonna get into next credible opening week on the court second. But let's start here where you surprise in an auburn still played on friday after a gonzaga player test positive. I was surprised because my opinion is that if other teams and i'm not saying all other teams but many other teams were in that situation. The game would not have been played in my opinion. If gonzaga ran into the issues it ran into and it was playing in belleville. gonzaga would not have played. It's game on friday. Gonzaga might not have even played a game against kansas or fill in the other opponent again. If you put it in. And i'm i'm speaking from what i'm seeing here and the protocols and everything that goes into place to even holding this in the state of connecticut okay. Gonzaga had a member of its travel party test positive on thursday gonzaga took two different planes to the event specific and has taken two different buses. It's it's doing specifically to guard against this. But obviously there is no full on guarding against this so we played kansas. And we'll get but then you know at least one player as positive another believed to be The players roommate is kept out as a precautionary reason. And the game goes off because and you can speak to a gp. Frankly we'll we'll get to virginia san francisco the minute but i was i was. I was watching that game. So i didn't hear fuse press conference. I've seen some of what he said. They're the relying on the florida health officials as being the ones that were to clear it and the health officials down there made that determination and it might wind up that that determination is going to be okay in the end. But i've received four text messages from coaches to heads to assistance. All of them basically asking why in the hell is gonzaga in auburn. Being allowed to play right now one of them saying if this was us there is no shot in hell that we would have been able to play and so this this is certainly captured. A little bit of attention around the college basketball world understandably so gonzaga's looked awesome. But you can make an easy argument that it that it should not have a have played the game. What are your thoughts. And then what can you share for the listeners. That might not have seen a about what few said in his postgame. Zoom press conference. Okay so mark was clearly asked about it and he said he kept it very simple. He's did we followed turns guidelines not we tournament guidelines were were in place and established. We had this positive test. And then we follow the guidelines and then the florida health officials came in and they contact tracing how they contact tracing. They told us we were okay. We were cleared to play and we play. He kept it. He didn't really expand anymore than that but listen. They didn't do anything illegal. They possibly did something irresponsible but didn't do anything illegal. They didn't act in defiance of the tournament or florida. Health officials noted that florida as a state hasn't taken covid nineteen that seriously to begin with. So what florida. Health officials were okay. Where quite clearly would be the same thing that said california. Health officials are okay. Wis lucky if they wanted to play the game. They're lucky they were in florida as opposed to to somewhere else. And you're exactly right. It's bubble ville or in south dakota. I don't believe this game would have been played. Wichita state got sent home from south dakota because they had maybe a couple of people in the travel and party test positive. They were like okay. Get outta here. You're not playing today. you're not playing tomorrow. you're not playing it off. So i don't know that this game would have been played if it were a tournament. Where you're at or in south dakota but because this was sort of a thing they put together in fort myers as long. Auburn was cool to play and gonzaga wanted to play. they were allowed to pluck. I though was surprised that the game went off. Because i mean we've seen baseball teams. Get shut down over one positive test during the major league baseball season the world series if it would have if the dodgers did not win the game justin turner had to be removed because they got a positive test back of the game so they take justin turner around. They complete that game. The understanding was that game. Seven of the world series would not have been the following night. They would not have played until everybody can test test test for a few days and they make sure it's safe to play and so yes. I was surprised that they played the game. And hopefully nothing comes from it that it doesn't end up being a quote unquote superspreader of it. Because if we an outbreak now at gonzaga because by the way gonzaga tweet video from the locker room after the victory over kansas and they're all celebrating no mask jewish authors in front of mark. Few right in the middle of the celebration. He is believed to be the one who test positive. So hopefully nothing comes of this but if we have a subsequent outbreak at gonzaga or subsequent at auburn gonzaga is going to become the biggest story in college basketball. And it's not going to be a sports story anymore. It won't be because jalen suggs looks. Incredible it'll be because they knew they positive test in their locker room and they played less than twenty four hours putting their players at risk and the auburn players at risk. I hope it doesn't come to that. But if it comes to that this becomes a bigger story than just to college basketball story. It becomes something that's on. Cbs evening news. Yeah we'll wait and see if that does happen. I mean auburn's gotta be you know held equally responsible and all of this because it opted to play the game regardless you know there was no self imposed penalty here. Handed down by bruce pearl. That was not in play on friday and so inherently like. You know the chances. Go up that you're going to potentially be infected. We don't know but it's clearly out there. I mean there are. There are no shortage of schools and athletic directors coaches. Just straight up would not play the game. So we'll wait arizona. State would not play baylor because the baylor coach tested positive. Not even a player who was who was gonna who was on the court with other players twenty four hours earlier right and that came from that even came from above. Bobby's hurley's bobby hurley's had which is the case in a lot of these instances but frankly what gonzaga auburn decided to do it. Just flies in the face of convention in college sports in professional sports that we've seen and we'll will you know we're recording this on friday afternoon. We'll wait and see what's going to happen here. Gonzaga's got some high profile games ahead and we're really enough one of them's blade baylor like if there's if there's one team that's actually going to be good with this like it's baylor. They might just play the game regardless. But we'll wait and see if either of these teams are now forced because if it gets another positive one after that like they have no choice. They're going to have to shut down for two weeks and then ask themselves if playing against auburn was really worth it you know. Was it worth it. Because now you're gonna lose these other games
All evidence points to the Big Ten being the best league in America for a second straight season
"Today, turn our attention to the big ten where I have Iowa winning the regular season title while Norlander has pegged Illinois as the. Favourite and Wisconsin to finish second. So let's start there. Norrland explain to me why you're being totally disrespectful the frame McCaffrey to Luca Garza to this public research university that was founded in eighteen forty seven at CBS sports me Jerry Paul David all have Iowa in the top two but you and strong JAL cow bone have Iowa third in the big ten. Explain Yourself. This is gene wilders Al-Matar we're talking about for crying out loud. Oh, there we go. Something tells them you've been snooping around the Iowa wikipedia page. That's where I get all my goodland ACM forty, seven trivia gets on. What's the oldest institution in the Big Ten? Let's let's what do we think it is big ten rules. What's two oldest one founded first? What's our guest founded? I I'm running through right now I'm going to say it's Penn State Penn. State's your guests I'm going to go. I'M GONNA go man is a tough one I'm going to say. That's a good one. I'M GONNA say Michigan I'M GONNA Michigan sealed list no idea by the way no idea someone chips someone pleads tweet us and let us know I don't know when the oldest we could. Actually we could go and look through all the wikipedia pages in real time here. But let's let's make a fun quick podcast here you want to know why I have. Iowa. Third I'll let you WanNa know what that's what I want. That's what you want to I'll let you know that I talked with Sam visine yesterday good old Sam. Who May who may appear on this podcast remember never know it's always out there. He actually asked me where I have Iowa in my one, two, three, fifty seven and I said, well, I'm GonNa have them in the top ten but I'm actually going to have them behind. Illinois in Wisconsin. He goes. You're absolutely right and I don't know how many people are gonNA. Agree with you. But I'm with you hundred percent and the reason why is this this team has the preseason national player of the year and Luca Garza it's got a great talent and Joe Camp. Jordan bohannon terrific Khanna McCaffrey. Great. But defensively, there's enough there that are not there that I'm going to. Just sell a bit on a twenty eleven team from last season ninety, seven defensive efficiency at Ken Palm. I like Wisconsin's overall team just a smidge better smidge and I do like Illinois I think he's GonNa be the best team in the big ten. So I love that we have we need some more genuine disagreement on the podcast here I've got Illinois definitely as the as the best team in the big ten and then Wisconsin and then Iowa. But in the Grand Scheme of the sport, I, think those are three of the ten best teams in college basketball. We agree on that have Iowa fifth in the top twenty five in one. Illinois six and Wisconsin Tint So. You know. We're all in the same ballpark and I do think you can reasonably despite. My anger at the top of the podcast I do think you can reasonably have those three teams in. Any order as for Iowa. Five players last season start at least twenty games all five or back plus they get Jordan Bohannon Beck, they finish twenty third at. Kim. Tom. But they were 97th in defense of efficiency and quite clearly if you're trying to look for a reason why Iowa isn't actually going to break through and make the final four for the first time since nineteen eighty. Where you start is on the defensive side of the ball ninety seven defensive efficiency. It's hard to be great when you are that bad on the defensive end of the court,
Gregg Marshall denies assaulting his players
"So embattled Wichita state coach Gregg Marshall released another statement second statement about the allegations made against him earlier this week. and. Among other things, he said this in response to the allegations put forward in the media I simply state unequivocally that I have never physically struck a player or colleague he continued allegations claiming otherwise are false. It is important that the investigation is school. This investigation that Wichita State. is currently. Conducting. It is important that the investigation conclude its work without outside influence in unrelenting character assassination by a member of the media that's Jeff Goodman. That repeatedly targets in my family threatens to undermine the impartiality of the investigation in quote, I should make it clear. Gregg Marshall didn't say Jeff Goodman I was just sort of added that to Mexican people understand the unrelenting character associated by a member of the media. That seemed directed at at Jeff Goodman who of course, interviewed more than thirty people connected to Wichita State Program to write the story that they published at stadium a what stadium dot com last week. So norlander, what did you think of Gregg Marshall said? Statement because it goes way further than the first statement in the first statement, he did not say he's never physically struck a player or Collie and that's when he did. On my question for you is, why do you think Greg Marshall made this statement which was six days after the stories. From Goodman and from the athletic why do you think he made the statement? He made six days for moved. I have a thought on a theory on but I was curious what you might think I think he has. been made aware or has reached the conclusion on his own that listen. If you put your hands on player, it's over. And so at that point, you got really one option if your goal is trying to your job and that is just to say, didn't happen.
The Shergar Case
"In nineteen twenty, the country of Ireland consisted of two self-governing territories. Northern Ireland and southern Ireland both of which belonged to the United Kingdom. Following the war of independence and the anglo-irish trading of Nineteen Twenty, one southern Ireland declared independence from the UK and became the Republic of Ireland while no, the norlander remained under. British Rue. This partitioning caused great conflict between the two regions with the Irish nationalists in the Republic wanting all of island to bay reunified as an independent country. Well, unionists in the north didn't agree. Many inhabitants of Northern Ireland were descended from English ancestors and Dente more is British instead of Irish hence their loyalty to the UK. The fact that the unionists were mainly of Protestant background while the nationalists were predominantly Catholic, only food that avoid. inau nineteen, Sixty, eight, a period known as the troubles began mocking a battle for control between those who thought Northern Ireland should be returned to the republic and to those who felt it should remain under British rule. Leading the charge was the Irish Republican Army or IRA also as the Provisional Irish Republican Army. IRA was an illegal paramilitary organization whose primary goal was divorced. The United Kingdom to negotiate a withdrawal from Northern Ireland. They sought to bring about unification of Ireland, through any Maine's including violence and terrorism. When the troubles began fighting between the IRA and British soldiers from Northern Ireland was at an all time high. Over the years the IRA bombed political and economic targets across Northern Ireland and England using guerrilla tactics in both a and and rural areas. is of extreme protesting and violence had culminated in low morale and widespread despair throughout island and the economy was in trouble resulting in high unemployment rights and mass emigration? Yet one industry that continued to thrive was horse racing, which provided twenty thousand jobs and attracted large sums of money from overseas. In nineteen ninety, an Irish racehorse named sugar took the industry boss storm becoming a racing champion and national treasure. Dra public, adored Shergar, and watching him achieve great success provided a much-needed distraction from the troubles. He became a symbol of hope and possibility in another was blake and trying time.
Moussa Cisse is going to Memphis
"See say five star prospect originally in the class two thousand twenty one, but now I'm class. Two Thousand Twenty announced this afternoon that he is committed to the University of Memphis. Pippen Hardaway's Tigers over offers from Georgetown Georgia. Florida State Lsu and Kentucky for those unfamiliar. I guess you can on some level. Call him a quote local product because he did spend the past year at Lausanne collegiate school, which is seven miles from the Memphis. MEMPHIS campus, but he's not really a local product. He was born in West. Africa moved to New York, in two thousand, fifteen played at Saint Benedict's prep in New Jersey played at Christ King in New York, then relocated a Memphis, the plate laws and this past season led the links to a state title, one Mr Basketball and the state of Tennessee average eighteen point, four points, fifteen point, three rebounds, and a ridiculous nine point two blocks per game, and now we have college basketball season. He says he'll play for the Memphis Tigers. norlander break it down. What do you make a penny? Hardaway lending a five star center in two straight recruiting classes last time. It was James Wiseman this time Mussa. Break it down Oh. Yeah, here's what I got a question for you I. Mean Here's here's was Gary Perez? Is tweet on Wednesday afternoon breaking all caps course. This was an all caps breaking the way I don't i. You know what expected to go to Memphis. I. Don't know if all caps was warranted there. Can you take me inside the thought process versus not in a? Regular grammar versus going all caps in that moment, please. Young Mussa say follows exactly ten people on twitter. I am one of them, and so I wanted to make sure he he saw how much emphasis I put on his commitment. How do I just know that two four six years from now if and when Lucy say is? Able to earn a consistent NBA paycheck, and perhaps it's even a player of of importance in the NBA. Gary Parrish will never ever ever forget or forget to remind people that there was one point in time and Mussa CCA followed ten people on twitter. And he was one of them. I honestly don't even understand it. Because like he used to follow a lot of people on twitter, I noticed and. One of them was not me, and then suddenly he cut almost everybody, but added me I don't really even know the connection there, but. I want I knew he'd see the tweet. And once I knew each the tweet I wanted to I wanted him to experience in all. Caps tweet obviously as as faithful podcast, listeners will know. Also one Moussa, see say. was tutored by your own son so I think. That might also be an influence. Parish working behind the scenes to get it done for Memphis. You've gotta admire actually ironically enough this happening in a week where parish is not on his local radio show. The conspiracy only strengthens. Okay, so here's what here's my question for you. you say the six eleven likely one and done talent averaged. Eighteen point four points, fifteen point, three rebounds and nine point two blocks last season pick memphis over Georgetown. Tom Kriens Georgia bulldogs Kentucky and Lsu. My question is. Who the hell is this guy planning? Nine point two blocks a game what? I have not I have. It's private school basketball in the state of Tennessee so? Took it over people who look like my oldest son in some cases like the blogging. What after another like I don't know I never been to a laws and basketball game and I've never even actually met. Say although it is true, my son and Mussa. Were classmates in my son to tutor him in in certain classes I. I don't even know if say knows that. My son is his classmate. He might, but I don't know that I've never I've never even had a real conversation about Mussa with my son. Other than so, what kind of young man is he and was like really nice? Really Really Nice guy like you know doesn't walk around like some big time. Basketball player I the only other times. I would talk to myself about Moses. Like Hey, did you see that dunk? That was on instagram last night or something like that? Because like fans are crazy, and at one point, the two schools involved in the Memphis in. RECRUITMENT MOST HEAVILY WE'RE MEMPHIS IN KENTUCKY and I'm like it doesn't matter what happens I. will somebody connected to one of those fan? Bases will blame me for it if HE GOES TO MEMPHIS, Kentucky fans it'd be because I pushed into Memphis somehow through my son, and if he goes to Kentucky Memphis fans, it'd be like see parish eight says all the modern salads like I'm not even getting involved. The only time my son had ever been asked about Mussa as recruitment. That I witnessed was one of my friends recently asked him when they were over at the house, and my son's answer was he always talked about? Georgetown but I don't think he's going to go to Georgetown and that was the extent of it. So he was right. Maybe my son's got a future and being a recruiting analyst, right?

Under, but we are now living in terrible economic reality and I think ten year contract extension Dr Probably thing of the past at least temporarily. Don't underestimate the power influence and dynamism of booth, gotch returning home to Minnesota. He four seven sports. I picked Minnesota because it was the best fit for me. Overall playing in the home state, being with my family during these difficult times and playing with the talented group, coming in Gotcha is going to most likely. Sit Out for next season. He will apply for a waiver. listen. It's booth Gotcha. Anything's possible and I'd love nothing more than to talk with. With you on this podcast sometime later this year and dedicated an entire episode to Gotcha getting immediately eligible, but I don't know if he can pull that ultimately, they'll goodwin here. I mean Minnesota Beats. Out Clayton Iowa State Maryland Auburn for Gotcha Services. He played the past two seasons at Utah, coming off a season where he averaged ten point, seven point, three point, six rebounds, and two point nine assists most notably rose to fame when you and I both failed in about seven different pronunciations unexpectedly as he came up during a December episode of the eye on college basketball podcast, but he has become. Quite beloved in a short period of time legitimately can be a really good player for Minnesota. This is the third transfer. For Richard Pitino in this offseason. They also got western Michigan Transfer. Who will be immediately eligible brandon, Johnson, and then there's A. There's a good freshman guard coming in David Mustaf, who should who's from Turkey who should be pretty good as well? Jamal Mashburn Junior is going to head into the program so I'll tell you this. I mean Daniel to route to me. When he wore Minnesota uniform last season was one of the fifteen best players in college basketball. Booth, gotch can be one of the ten best players in college basketball in Minnesota uniform. You're from now if he so chooses teams also GonNa Bring Back Marks. Car GABE CAL sheer hope I'm getting that right and Trey Williams. Minnesota needs to be better. I think it will be better I don't know if it's GonNa. Be a year from now or two but I had I listen and full transparency. I insisted we do this podcast here. Okay, because it's booth, gotch. Biggest news of the week as far as I'm concerned in college basketball I. Don't see how we top this little question I have for you perish. Is I know Minnesota wasn't in your top twenty, five and one I assume version. What nineteen point I was going to be coming out on Tuesday. I must say what Minnesota from unranked to seventeenth eighteenth. Are you going to hold off even though Gosh might not? Not Be eligible I'm just wondering if there's influence on this roster scout team, and all that stuff might be enough for you to put Richard Patino team into the rankings. Here's what I would say. I I understand your skepticism about booth garage getting a waiver to play immediately at Minnesota, but I would say if Johnny. Jusin got one transferring back home to UCLA. Why wouldn the Homie Gawk get? One, at Minnesota. That's a very valid point. I consider that goofing around When I would, I reached out to people connected to the juicing situation as Joe First, congrats, secondly, how'd you get done so quickly? It wasn't just that choosing got waiver. It was like you got a waiver in like early. June or late, May, I mean it was a really sometimes. He's players waiting for waivers like the seats and started. Started and like they're still I'd nerd anything and to get one done that early. How you get a dog. And what I was told was it's was the easiest waiver request ever. You've got a young man on the other side of the country, wanting to move home to be close to his family during a pandemic. How was it ended up going to deny that one? It's like okay and if you apply that same. Logic to booth Gotcha. SCITUATE I would I would actually assume that he will get a waiver play immediately and to answer your question at that point I got bad news for I you. Look, there's a new favorite. There's a new paper to the big ten. GOPHERS. got.
Speculations increases that Cole Anthony might not play again in college
"So there's growing speculation that Kohl Anthony will not play at North Carolina again. Norrland not sure if you saw it. But here's what our friend and former colleague Sabatini wrote for the athletic earlier this week about Injured lottery picks is co Anthony. lamelo ball in Hampton after spending time in Las Vegas around dozens of NBA people sambo quote the feeling among NBA evaluators. Waiters is that injured guards. Coal Anthony Lamelo ball and RJ. Hampton aren't going to play the rest of the season. It's worth stressing that no final decisions have been made by those players. I and thus it's possible. They will still play scouts and executive. Don't know that Anthony won't suit up again for North Carolina or that Bala Hampton won't play again in the NBA. I'll rather it's. They're working expectation that they're not going to get to see them again. Given their contextual situations the using logic because North Carolina's team around Anthony has struggled with no uh-huh floor spacing and a cluttered lane around him every time he drives into the pain. NBA executives believe that does around. Anthony will stress to him that it's not worth returning that will be especially true if North Carolina loses a lot of games in his absence against a week schedule and this takes itself out of the tournament. Picture norlander do you. I think we've seen coal anthony for the final time in North Carolina uniform. I'll be direct and I'll say no but I had this thought think I expressed only previous podcast if UNC goes on to have significant issues in the ACC and can't even keep its head above water. Call Anthony Projects even with this injury. I won't say universally but a top five pick is completely mm within reality if he does not play again and it would not stunned me. It'd be it'd be a major development element in that you would have in the same season for what I have to believe. Is the first time ever in college. Basketball Ascot Ball to top five level picks in college for eligibility injury. Whatever opting to bail on their college careers to not return and pursue a pro opportunity trinity? which is the which is the? It's like the college bowl. College players sitting out the Bulls taken to to the sixth degree. Basically where it's one thing where if you've been a junior senior in college football you're playing some forgettable bowl on December twenty ninth ninth New Year's Eve or whatever and you're just like I'm Gonna I'm GonNa pack it in here. I'M NOT GONNA chance injury if I think I'm going to be first second or third round pick. It's completely understandable. Aw I would endorse any player that wants to do that. Frankly it's a whole nother level if you are a coal Anthony Type James Wiseman type and you you decide. I'm just GONNA shut it down altogether and simply not returned to competition and GonNa take the stock where I have it right now and hope that my April and May workouts are going to Either steady me or boost me to to a certain spot in the draft so I won't be stunned if it happens. I'm going to say that will not happen. Only because because he's a truly like fierce competitor. I think that he will be better. He'll we'll be back in time to still want to give it a go out that this is GonNa sit well with him having his career kind of sputter out the way that it has. So Oh he's he's nine games deep into a career. I think he'll be back. He'll be playing for Carolina this season and long-term projection is this and we can do a offer. Type flashback if we need to but I'll say that he'll return and one of the most compelling storylines in college basketball when he does return will be if he can be healthy enough and good enough to get an UNC into the tournament. I would lean that way as well. I do think there's two things that would make him less likely to to return or unlikely to return one would be if you just not healthy enough. And if he's not healthy enough. You shouldn't return. That's like you know like this. and He is worth millions of dollars and playing playing at anything. Less than one hundred percent would be foolish. So if he's not healthy enough to return then he won't return shouldn't return anybody trying to criticize him for that would be It'd be misguided criticism the other thing that I think could play a role as you mentioned ballgames for football players. Will you know they don't these football players. They don't sit the College Football playoff. They sit out the cotton bowl and they sit out the Birmingham Bowl and they sit out the liberty bowl but they don't sit out the the games that actually mean something something and so if you want to you know. Make perhaps apples to oranges comparison but still something similar still fruit to fruit I. If coin returns in North Carolina has just lost so much before. He's able to come back that he would be coming back not to try to get North Carolina to the tournament the try to get them to the nit like we're just crystal clear you're not. You're not taking this team to the tournament. At that point. You could go if I'm not playing playing for any. I'm not playing for a trip to the tournament. What am I playing for? Like if you're in Alabama running back and you're playing for a trip to the account coll- to the national championship game. That's worth playing for even if you're a top ten pick if you're just gonNa go to the fiesta. A A different bowl. Anything outside of the College Football playoff. Perhaps that's not worth playing for. I think coli Anthony's approach could be similar if if I can come if if this team is holds it together well enough that I can come back and we can beat Duke twice beat Louisville and go to the tournament. That's worth playing for but but coming back to just play out a schedule that's leading the nowhere because the image to the resume was so significant in my absence that we can't get to the tournament then. I think you could reasonably argue. It's time it's time to just clock out. That's why I think his situation is vastly different than James Wiseman situation. I mean if coal as that he comes back to take North Carolina to the IT. He's just a great talent who played at North Carolina. Like who cares but why has been in theory was set to rejoin the top ten team. And you know if you take memphis to a final four. You're a legend forever in Memphis emphasis. You know they don't have the history of North Carolina or Duke or Kentucky. You any Memphis Fan can can tell you that the starters from all three three final four teams. There's never been a national champion. So you got a chance to go do that. And what is a wide open year to walk away from that I still think is just just just odd and I don't think that he would be walking away from that. So it's why I guess I bought them on it this way. I would understand if North Carolina goes three and five in its next eight games and Co Anthony's cleared to return and he says but you know the numbers are so bad at this point. We're not GONNA be able to get to the incidentally tournament. I'm just going to focus on my pro career. I would understand that a lot a lot a lot more easily than then I can understand James Wiseman walking away when he walked away I would to. UNC seven and five and next four games are at home. The road is after that or pit in Virginia tech I understand. UNC's serious down swell here but I do think that it will be instantly good enough spot. Where provided there there are no further setbacks and you know it's an it's an MC L. It's it's not insignificant by any means? Let's he's gotta get fully healthy here. They're not gonNA put them back on the floor until he is one hundred percent you know. Make the parallel almost to design Williamson. Obviously obviously Except signed Williamson is now being handsomely. Paid and company is not yet I do think the Carolina I'm Projecting Carolina will be still within reach of the tournament by the time he was able to come back. And so that's what will make Make that happen. But we'll wait and see obviously get investments on that story will continue to update up to you talk about it and see where we go from there.
Ohio State men's basketball team defeats Penn State 106-74
"Start about discussing Ohio state because the Buckeyes beat the absolute crap out of another quality opponent this weekend. Final Score Ohio state one. Oh six pin state seventy four. So that's a thirty. Two point win over a Penn State team that entered the game ranked twenty third at Kim. Palm the lines are now twenty six which means as of this moment Ohio state has three wins by at least twenty points over top fifty Kim pom teams and according to Hoop Visions Jordan sperber the rest of the country like the other three hundred and fifty two division one teams combined only have three wins by at least twenty points over top fifty Kim pom teams which means Ohio state has already done something three times that the entire rest of the country has only also done three times just incredible so Ohio state is now number five offensive offensive efficiency number two defensive efficiency number one it can palm number two it's Sagara number two in the CBS sports top twenty five and one norlander. Yeah I think you and I both knew it would be good because they returned some key pieces in Chris. Holtman is excellent. Did you think they'd be this good. They are killing people and now again again number. One Akin no not even close to not even close. Maybe that's a little too thick but Yeah Jordan Stat. I re tweeted. We did that on Saturday. That's that's a really really good one And in light of what the Buckeyes were able to do. Just wipe the floor with Penn State thoroughly and I you know that was a secondary TV game. But I did have it on. And then it was extremely impressive and Caleb Western has been the star of the team to this point in the season but you know as we mentioned on the On the Friday podcast they do have more than just him and digit carton is really coming. He's coming into his own I I like so much of what he's been able to do. So yeah I mean this is the best when I said that it was the best team in the big ten. And you said are you gonNA pretend like mark turgeon doesn't exist. You remember when that happened. I vaguely remember that. Yes and then remember how Maryland should've lost at home to Illinois and really had. We're not going to dedicate anytime on this podcast. That game because it was hideous Maryland had no business beating Illinois. Did you happen to catch any of that game. By the way they were down. Big Big big and I was stressed out because have a real impact on the twenty one but then a Anthony Cowan got going down. The stretch in Maryland escapes win is a win is a win win is a win and I am. I am driving the Cowan bus as you. Well know and on that note I was happy to see it but but Maryland Illinois will get their due in time to come but yeah that just reinforced my belief that right now Ohio state is clearly The best as team in the big ten and according to some metrics operating as the best team in college basketball right
"norlander" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"It is a big night for those folks. Matt norlander is my guest Matt good. Have you back? How are you? them it's great to be back in before we start talking i just got a mentioned something real quick off the top it was about eleven twelve years ago when i was working in a humble weekly newspaper office and i kill time during the afternoon working in connecticut i listened to the jim rome radio stream and it was then it was then that i i heard a smack off and so i've been a listener ever since i know we're on the eve of a massive event here so good luck tomorrow can't wait to listen to get it on the podcast there and is jeff richmond going to be a part of this because if he is i mean my money's on him i hope that he gets involved somehow that's that's like a top caller in the show history so do we know the status of jeff in richmond mamane you know for a fact how much i like you how much i respect you how proud i am a you for coming up the way you have what have you heard a smack off since those eleven years ago no kidding yeah he's in he's in but he was in last year and he called in didn't get on the air so i'm not sure as a smack off champ he is invited but he is not I'm calling lately, man. I'm not sure what to expect. And those would say is going to call he's going to make the same call that he made twenty years ago when he won. That's fine. If it's not him, then I want the legendary guy from Boston who talked about Andy Pettitte, nostrils, like we've got to track down that guy 'cause that's like, I cracked up. You're so right. Man. You I so appreciate the thoughts. I'm glad you found that you'll back then tomorrow is the big day in really appreciate you saying, thanks so much, or so big night for you. There's no doubt that time Williamson is going to be the first pick tonight. Matt, just how high is ceiling. In other words, we talking about an all star in all NBA player. And if so how quickly. Yeah. He's got a really high ceiling if we want to be realistic about this as possible. His feeling I think is top twenty player in NBA history. We're talking feeling. Not not. Absolutely. What they'll be? But if you felt what he didn't college, and if you combine his marketability, the megawatts mile, the talent the fact that we haven't had much buzz around the player heading into a draft since LeBron James, and before LeBron James who was, like, we've had maybe five players ever. If you can tap into the all that avoid injuries are concerned about, you know, his body type the way he plays if he prone four years from now to have his eases go on him to blow on him. No one wants to see that. But he's just so heavy, and so he has no comparison like, Shawn Kemp might be the closest thing. And even he's not that kind of close overall so tonight it's going to be all about vying, Williamson as it should be. But I think the draft will be known for that for the top three for him and John Moran and RJ Barrett. And then I think you're gonna see a slew of trades. Gonna it'll be interesting for NBA fans because don's the big story. What does he say you know what do we go through with here? What New Orleans but New Orleans has that fourth pick him. Did they trade it out of it or were they good with Lonzo ball and might they take your Culver hunter, there's a lot of fascinating things there because it'll be about die on, and then what you put around him because now he becomes obviously one of the biggest stars in the NBA, because he was he I would argue that he was the biggest story in basketball for the past eight months. How often how often does that ever the case where a college basketball player is the biggest thing in all about all levels of basketball season? Dying applied there and stuff into the league will be one of the biggest things for decade running problems point, Matt, norlander joining us, he's part of CBS sports HQ's live draft coverage. And again, that gets away at ten P PM eastern. Mount. You mentioned John Morand. Let me ask you about that. Because the expectation is, of course he'll go. Number two. You have been all over him for quite some time before we talk about his game at the next level Zion was a guy who had. Amazing hype for years any lived up to it. Maranto nearly went undiscovered. How do you explain that? What happened? Well, it's kind of an explicable and down with Josh that parents and family about that and his story, so well told at this point, if anyone happens to think that that's not millionaire with it. I mean he was not. He was not highly recruited. He went to a tuna you tournament, and they separated kids at the start of it and said, okay, we think you're good enough. You're going to be in the main gym all your other guys. I don't over there, the other gym, or no one's gonna be paying any attention, and it was then assistant at Murray state who just because he wanted MAC. He was hungry he stopped in and he's drama rent dominating three on three drills. And thanks. This kid might actually be something. It's fascinating to me how he has made this job, because I talked to Murray, say, coach Matt McMahon at the end of drama rants freshman year and I said, listen, if they're possibilities, their potential that, you know, if he was really good at off more. He might be able to, to leave after two years Murray state put in point guard, you know, campaign, I think Hanan and now you got drama rent, the, the program is actually established itself is sort of a mid major point guard do. And he told me he had met, we have got significant interest already from NBA teams right now. And up the time this is off the record. But here we are now he said, listen, John rent is ninety nine percent leaving for the day after a software, and if he wants to being a lottery pick on telling you, it will not be shocked whatsoever credit Matt McMahon. Mary because before he blow up as a sophomore well before that he thought that he had a legit lottery talent on offense. And as we turn out. See become a top player and a rare case of a mid major point guard going top three then MBA draft. We almost never see that guy's amazing. Like we're rolling beat role CBS sports network. And I'm listening to you and I'm watching the video. Just absolutely amazing. How explosive this guy is how unique he is. And then the wisdom has been that New York, we'll take RJ Barrett. Number three, there have been some questions about his game recently, especially when it comes to being compared to Zaire on in your opinion. How fair is that and those questions not fair at all. And in fact, if you hear any sort of talk about how RJ Barrett was overshadowed at two. Overlooked undervalued. It's if the crock it's not true whatsoever. RJ Barrett set the ACC freshman scoring record nuts. Do cress from scoring record the ACC freshman, scoring record Don Williamson. It's all of those games in February going into March with RJ Barrett leading the team maintain that number one seat seats. In fact, the number one overall seed was fantastic score. Remember, a year ago had we've been talking on on draft day and said, okay. Look forward to twenty nineteen did Barrett was in near consensus forecast, number one pick the fact that he drops the three is no big indictment on him or his game whatsoever. I think he's ready and tailor-made score at the level immediately. And I don't think there are any sure things in this draft. And I would define a short thing as multiple future all star even Zeile Willie Williamson if I don't, I don't necessarily think you Bank that, if you had to bet your life on it, I wouldn't bet that, but I think there is the second guy Belo's I on that I think is most likely to be a multiple time all started because he's crap. Eighty south walking can get into the lane well-suited well from deep, and I think that he is going to walk into a situation New York, where he will be set up to thrive and it'll be sitting, and he is. I know he is ready. I think that you will see when we look up first second week of November, Jim, we're gonna notice immediately RJ Barrett making impact on the game for his team similar to what Luca dodgers did for Dallas, Matt norlander joins me for another moment. Or so we know he's ready. In fact, we know the first three already but the thinking spin that this is in effect a three player draft. How accurate is that assessment? I think this is my least favorite talking point of the calendar year so far. Okay because it's never only a two player three player four player draft. It's that's because the only reason why this has come up is because it has been a consensus worth Diane than jaw than RJ. You almost never get that going into draft where it's weeks ahead of time months ahead of time. The one the two of the three in order are. And so, because of that, at the lazy talking point that we fall back on guarantee a guarantee, you look, up to three years from now there's going to be two or three second round from this draft is going to be four or five guys pick between ten and thirty in the strap that are going to be starting level NBA players. The trick obviously is identifying and not just that, but I think the one thing about the draft that does not ever get talked about enough, what NBA general managers and talent evaluate what they're trying to do with these guys can all play basketball. Can you do not get to the level where you're twenty draft pick and you're going to be a bus? No, it's about alchemy about who you are the person the skill set. You have the exact situation you go through the city that you moved. There are all of these elements that have to click in order for you. To be successful NBA player because they're only so many roster spots are only been affecting place, just because some guy got might get picked eighteen and wind up having ten times the career, some guy that goes eight it doesn't mean necessarily that the guy that was eight was doomed to fail. He just wound up going to the raw situation. So I'm always fascinated to see which players get picked to which franchises and are they allowed to develop, you know, I've had a couple of coaches specifically talk to me about how they hope there guys go to certain franchises over others because with an NBA circles and within college basketball circles certain franchises have better reputations in some areas and other specifically pertains to Claire development. So keep an eye on that as well. I sometimes think we just completely dismiss these guys and reputations in the Smith. How good they work coming into the draft. When in reality, it's very much about the situation. They walk into hell coaching staff sets them up for success, my CBS calling Matt norlander joining us right now about one last thing bowl bowl is one of the more polarizing players in the draft. You have him going to Boston. And number twenty two some made the case if you were healthy all season long, he would have been one of the first guys off the board. How do you balance his potential with the concerns about his health? That's the great balance there. And I've got him going to Boston because Boston have three picks I think if they guarantee they trade, at least one of those six, and if they don't trade it with Volvo wind up wrapping him. He's the kind of gamble that they can take but math and concerns on the defensive end concerned about health overall concerns about how much he really wants to play the game loves to play the game. Obviously, most people listen to remember how interesting has father was..

"I was so thrilled to join and be a team that if my job had entailed standing on the sideline and picking up the scrunched up Gatorade cuts. I would have been thrilled or so if you were talking to a young Amy Trask right now or you were talking to somebody who just starting out right now. You were talking to somebody who's making a big change right now. What would your advice be? Well, I would give three pieces of advice to someone starting out if the question came from a young woman, which often they do my first piece of advice would be gender-specific, when I'm asked, what should a young woman due to advance in her career point one stop thinking about the fact that you're a woman if you don't want others thinking about your gender? It makes no sense to think about your gender. If you wanna go into a business setting and have gender, not be an issue. Don't make it an issue. So point one is gender specific. Stop thinking about your gender to is gender neutral work hard, hard work matters. It really, really matters. And when you think you can't work any harder. Find a way to work harder, Jim. I know you've done that your whole career. I can't tell you the number of times sitting in my office, people walk in and say, you know, how do we get a job like yours. And I say, well, you know, this when you get here in the morning, Mike. Cars already here. And do you notice when you leave at night? My car is still here, hard work matters. And the third piece of advice goes right to the heart of what you asked tonight, own self be true. My biggest moments in my view have come when I've been true to myself, and my biggest failures, and stumbles and fumbles have been when I tried to be something or someone I'm not.

"norlander" Discussed on CBS Sports Eye On College Basketball Podcast
"Welcome back to the island. College basketball podcast when we sometimes discuss Campbell fighting leaks. Black Matt norlander is here with me. I want to open up big twelve because an interesting past two days in the big twelve on Monday night, Baylor went to Oklahoma and one by thirty by thirty to extend its winning streak to five games. Scott clues bears now five into the league tie with Kansas state and only Kansas state atop the big twelve standings. That's because Kansas law seventy three sixty three Tuesday night at Texas. So the jayhawker now sixteen and five overall five and three in the big twelve. But even more concerning is KU is now just four and four since you as a bookie suffered a season ending hand injury. And they're just one in five in road games on the season. So let's start here. Norlander? You have consistently said you will not pick anybody other than canes in the big twelve until K you string of at least share of fourteenth straight big twelve titles as broken, but right now Keynes's tied for third the big twelve standings, the jayhawks trending in the wrong. Direction and Kim Tom currently projects Iowa State to win the league outright and snap. K you streak question. Are you ready to abandon Bill self? Are you ready to say Kay you streak of big twelve titles? It's coming to an end question. Where's your Iowa State picked in the league? Answer. I'd have given possibly remember something answer. I know it was six I had him second-half doing good morning. I can't believe it's been three days as we had a podcast this week is flying by I will not abandon my band in my post. I'm still going to stick with this. I am still let me I think this is the language I've used in the past, but I will make it crystal clear as we start this Wednesday podcast. I will not pick Kansas to not finish atop the league standings in the big twelve until it doesn't. There have been a couple of instances over the past fourteen years where they finished atop the leaks endings and actually shared a regular season title with a couple of other teams. I think that outcome is actually now most likely I'm not gonna give up on this this not gonna Bandon it. And as as you're mentioning this. I was thinking about it yesterday. Because I knew he talked about this earlier in the season. I I refused to abandon Villanova. And then I feel like you kind of talk me into abandoning Villanova. And now, look what's happening. So the same thing is applying here, I know in the aftermath of losing a road game, Texas. It's feeling like it's never been this much jeopardy for Kansas. Maybe that's true. But I got to see it to believe it. And I also think big twelve big picture wise, I'll get to Baylor in a second. But on throwback to you first big, picture wise. The big twelve I don't think the winner is going to get out of this without at least five losses at least five right now Baylor in K state have to Texas Tech which is balancing back. Nicely has three Kansas three in Iowa State has three I would say, it's even relatively possible. Maybe not likely, but if we if we look up we see three teams wind up finishing with five losses atop the standings. And if that indeed this happen, I think you're going to have some people out there that are going to refute the Kansas fifteenth street years, but the record really is consecutive years finishing atop the league standings in the regular season tie or no tie. I won't give up yet. And. With Kansas if you can take now it's easier said than done in Texas was able to do this to a certain degree. Thanks in part to Jackson Hayes who is a raw talent. But if he wants to leave after one season, he will leave and he will be first run traffic guy like him on the floor, certainly had an impact. And you can't get anything else consistent there. They didn't even start legit Vic last night. Oh, Ty Balji started. And he was actually he was he was fairly decent. But there's not they're not getting enough around him.

"But I think the same question posed and and Michigan state's subject, I think the answer is also yes, they were down bad on the road in a league game against a good team that can happen to almost anybody in the country. I'm not worried about Michigan state at all. Let's move on. So Tennessee has the longest winning streak right now. The vol's of one fourteen straight games, they beat West Virginia on Saturday. In Thompson, Boling they were down big early. And it was like is the number one team in the country on upset alert. And then they just ran away from West Virginia they handled on the way they were supposed to handle them six. No in the SEC right now trivia time norlander who has the second longest winning streak right now. Okay. It's so it's not LSU. It is LSU. He put that on t for me. I thought you were trying to reverse do, Jim. Yeah. They okay. So there you credit to them. And by the way, LSU getting away with a win at Missouri. Not they shouldn't have won the game. And then they pulled away in overtime that was a credit to them. But I thought Elsie was like the overly obvious answer. You might have been somewhere else. But yes, anyway, the reason I think it's an obvious answer to you. Because we do this every day. I wonder how many people listening actually knew the answer to that. Because LSU has been operating a little bit of the national radar. They were preseason top twenty five, but then they go down to Orlando to the advocate invitational. And they took a pair losses down there that just just weren't good. The first one was to to Florida state in OT nothing really wrong with that. But Florida state has I believe dropped out of the top twenty five at this point. Florida state has lost a bunch lately has lost three the last four heading into Sunday's game. Against a Miami. And so LSU lose that one. And then the real stinker was the next with two days later on Sunday, November twenty fifth they lose ninety seventy seven to an Oklahoma state team that is currently nine and eleven overall two and five in the big twelve and even though it was ninety eight seventy seven like the score was closer than the game. Oklahoma state just pounded them. So they get dropped out of the rankings. And they dropped all the way down to fifty. I at Kim palm. But they're playing well now they've won nine in a row, they're sixteen and three overall six in the SEC, and they don't have a signature win yet unless you count the win at ole miss immediately after omiss got ranked in the people, but like ole miss shown itself to not be top twenty five team since then I I'm comfortable predicting they'll drop out of the people on Monday and LSU hasn't yet. Played Tennessee Kentucky Mississippi. Date. But this team has gone from fifty first at Ken palm on December ninth to twenty fourth at can palm right now. They're number thirteen in the net. Let me ask you this. Do you put LSU in the top tier the SEC with Tennessee and Kentucky. Yes, I do. I think the team is is exceptional on defense. In fact, second in the country among power offers teams in steals per game trivia, who's number one among all power conference teams in steals per game. Perish in steals per game. Number one power conference team. I have no idea. I don't want to answer and say something stupid. So I'll just let you answer. All right by not answering. It's just a stupid. If you guessed. So I will give you the answer. It's Duke ten point five LSU is nine point nine per game. They excel in that area also thirteenth in the net rankings. They have in trending well in the instabilities official metric overall, listen.

Number eight, Texas Tech loss to unranked Baylor number twenty Oklahoma loss to unranked Texas, number twenty five Indiana, lost to unranked produce a five different ranked teams loss to unranked teams, and there's now a four way tie at the top of the big twelve between Kansas Texas, Tech, Iowa State in Kansas state. We're gonna get to some of that perhaps most of that plus Kentucky's win over Auburn before this podcast is done. But I did want to start with the biggest game of the weekend. And that was for Jinya at Duke. It was rare matchup between a team ranked number one of the people and a team ranked number one in the coaches poll RJ Barrett Zion Williamson combined for fifty seven points wins seventy two seven. See I was courtside inside Cameron indoor and Orlando was watching the CBS sports HQ studio in Connecticut. So let's just start here. Norlander how impressive win over for Jinnah win that came without the services of trade Jones. A lot more impressive than you showing up without a stethoscope on the sideline as I scanned in the early minutes of the first half and looked for for Gary Parrish.

"Nineteen welcome back to the island college basketball podcast, where we sometimes discuss camel fighting an leaky black Matt norlander is here within it's been a fun few days since we last recorded on Tuesday morning, ole miss and North Carolina State, both loss to unranked opponents and almost did it at home. I always state one at Texas Tech, Kansas state, one at Oklahoma. So now everybody in the big twelve has at least one loss and now once again Kansas his projected by Kim bomb to win the league outright surprise surprise before we get into what's on tap of this weekend. I do want to spend just a few minutes on what Kansas state has done over the past nine days because I really do think it's the best week to week season flip in the nation. Check this out. So Kansas state goes to the elite eight last season brings back. Some good pieces is ranked twelfth in the preseason people eleventh in the preseason coaches poll, and then the Wildcats start six into with. No, good, winds and. Double digit loss to Marquette at a forty seven forty six loss at Tulsa. So now, they're unranked right, then the inner big twelve play with a ten and two record, but still no Goodwin's on the resume, and then Kansas state loses the big twelve opener to Texas, then lose to Texas Tech. So now a window in the league. And then last Wednesday night, they're down eighteen points at home to West Virginia. Obviously on the verge of drop into Owen three with games at Iowa State and at Oklahoma on deck in other words, oh and five in the big twelve is starting to look very possible if not probable, but then they race at eighteen point deficit last Wednesday. They beat West Virginia. Then they go and win at Iowa State over the weekend. And then on this Wednesday night, the one that just happened Kansas state wins that Oklahoma. So instead of being ten and seven overall, oh and five in the big twelve Kansas state is currently thirteen and four overall three and two in the big twelve because Kansas state overcame that eighteen. Deficit to beat West Virginia. Then one two road games as an underdog. That's how you flip a season norlander shelter. Bruce, Weber Shasta D. Wade.

"To the eye on college basketball podcast. Matt norlander issue with him once again and nothing happened. Since last time, we talked said this Windies podcast. It was true. Then I'm saying again on this podcast. It's true again. Now bottom line this is by far the worst week of the college basketball season. The only ranked team that's played a game. So far this week is Houston and that was last Sunday against Coppin states. Whatever Christmas is great for the kids. Great in general. I enjoyed the day with my family, but putting Christmas on a Tuesday really does screw up an entire week of college basketball evidence being that this is the only week of the entire season in which one ranked team will not play another ranked team Norrland or how border you at this week. You know, what I embrace it because I've gotten to it's boring. There's no doubt about it. But I know we're turning into a pretty active January here, and that'll be awesome. But I've had a chance to catch up with. With a lot of albums do a little bit of reading. And so I welcome the reprieve while even squeezing in three week college basketball podcast to the listeners who frankly, I I don't want to be too presumptive here. But I hope we are. We are filling your week up with with some college hoops content that you're craving amid a lot of non stuff happening on the court. So I've actually I've enjoyed the fact that there hasn't been so much hoops action. And I'm excited to chat about the interesting games. We've got coming this weekend. And yes in a little bit the much awaited highly anticipated at least only on my end year in review is coming on this podcast. It is true. That this is where you can catch up like I've done multiple expense reports. I've thrilling. Yeah. I cleaned out. The garage you do because I'm home, and there aren't any real relevant games happening. You do have time to actually like act like a normal person. So I guess that's the good side. But I am ready to give back the relevant college. Football games, and we will do. So how about this for transition Saturday at two pm eastern. The biggest game this week is number sixteen Kentucky against Louisville inside the center downtown Louisville Kentucky enters the nine and two record. Thanks to that big win over North Carolina in last week in CBS sports classic at the United Center Norrland, and I were both there. UK's two losses. So far this season. The thirty four point loss to Duke and the overtime lost Seton Hall and this game against Louisville. It will be a Kentucky's first true road game of the season. Meantime, Louisville nine and three overall eight no inside the Senate cards of beat. Michigan state. Also beat the same Seton Hall team that beat Kentucky Lula's losses on Tennessee on a neutral Marquette on a neutral at Indiana. So nothing bad on the resume Louisville's unranked now. But if the cardinals beat Kentucky, I'm certain they'll be top twenty five and one come Sunday morning. Like, I said tip is at two pm eastern on Saturday norlander, it's not the same as Calipari Patino Kentucky little game. But it's still pretty good. Right. Gaddis is pretty good..

"Got mad norlander here with me roughly twenty four hours after we said together. Lou Mahdi's Kaga watch Arezzo state upset top rank Kansas while I try to eat an entire pie. But couldn't finish. Meantime, norlander killed his entire pie. And then most of his second by like a machine. So let's start with a big f you to metabolism norlander like maniac tall thin. I actually try to watch what I eat. I'm totally disgusting. I was so jealous watching you eat last night. You just eat whatever you want doesn't seem to matter. I was so disappointed watching you eat. Now. Let's be really let's let's be transparent. I did not order to deep dish pizzas. I our our friend Bryan Hamilton of the athletes, recommended I give the thin crust. Mal nowadays a chance I did the deep dish is much much better to everyone who has an issue with calling this pizza. Go take a walk. I could not care less about people that are trying to die. On this hill of of calling Chicago deep dish pizza anything, but pizza, whatever. It's awesome still like peak watts best. But now is a great time. And you did not even finish. I don't know what that was about. And but it was it was a good time in Chicago at got a couple of things we'll get to you on later in this podcast perish. But I I I much ause. You might have with me when I was starving to. I couldn't believe that you didn't finish. And listeners are probably well aware of the fact I picked to pick two hundred three hundred dollars straight up, and they and they pulled it off. So I mean, I'll leave I'll leave it to you at that point. But when we when we last spoke you had Kansas winning. No, you had Carolina winning no and I- ridiculously picked the Pac twelve team to win. So that was my mistake and I own that completely. So first thing on the pizza argument. There are people who like to have this argument. Whether deep dish pizza is pizza. And they insist that it's not therefore New York pizza must be best. If you wanna say, New York pizza's, the best fine with me, if you wanna say, Chicago pizza, isn't pizza like whatever, I'm not even interested in the argument. I just know this if you put both things on table in front of me and tell me I can have one of the I'm taking the deep dish every single time. And I don't care how you frame it. Or what you call it? Just good. You call it crap. You could be like payers would you like some deep dish crap? I'd be like, yeah. I'll take that. If it comes from p quads Luma nods or wherever so like, yeah. I'm with you. I don't even entertain the debate. I just know that this tastes good pizza. Tastes good. Is. It was. No it was. It was tremendous as always. And it was just it was awesome to to get to Chicago as we talked about just a level elite level top tier American city love getting chance to get out there. And it was great to see you. And we got some interesting basketball games. Do you wanna get to what we saw? Do you want to start with the fact that Kansas, you know, my preseason number one team finally took a loss as I expected to do where do you want to launch here? GP let's start there because we did not after the CBS sports. Classic was dawn just call. It a night. I mean, we kinda did we went to nowadays, and we ordered drinks, and we ate pizza or whatever you wanna call it. But we did sit at the table. I got the laptop out and we watched Arizona state canes at our table. Like, you mentioned Arizona state Kansas its first loss of the season..

"Hey, there I'm Kerry Wednesday, October third, two thousand eighteen welcome back to the island. Cal basketball pack. And Matt norlander is here with me awhile. We've quoted a podcast nearly a month if I checked the records and that's because norlander became a father for the second time. He's been on paternity leave paternity leave, but he's back now had another baby. Boy. He did not name the baby. Joe mad norlander and that's good. Considering dismal performance from the cubs over the past couple of days norlander how you've been, how's the baby little Khalil? Mack norlander is is doing fine, and it's not actually Khalil Mack, but I was damn tempted to try and make a name change after Misha cog bears are three. No, since my son, Alex was born, we're doing great great to be back on the cash at to the listeners for your patience. We appreciate that. We'll be back on a weekly schedule here and then the season gets going. We'll go back to three times a week, but things at home are. Busy an interesting, but I'm I'm making out just fine. And yes, it was. It was a boy. So there we go. I was at about. I can't remember if I said this on the podcast or not perish, but by the time we got to the moment of truth hours at about eighty to eighty three percent that we were going to have a boy. And the reason that was was my wife was unintentionally tipping your hand. So the small party thought, okay, unless she's playing this so sly. So I was ready for the doctor. You know, my wife ended up having a c. section at six fifty in the morning, and she's like, are here here is you have a, this is going to be a last second. I was like, this is going to be a girl and I was so ready for girl and so eager for one. But we gotta boy, which is awesome. So on the oldest, four boys now I have two sons norlander male gene is is running extremely strong hair, but it's fantastic and it's it's been. It's been a fun couple of weeks here with the exception of last night as I was. Was watching my Cubbies just completely Peter out and pull a Mets for the better part of the past month. Really. I mean, just could not get any runs, but it's been awesome to to watch the cubs and to kind of just, you know, be with my with my newborn hair. So that's an exciting thing. But it's obviously Tober and we're getting close to troop season. So that's a great thing to, but most of all just happy to be doing the podcast again, does the fact that you wanted to girl make you resent your second son? Not even close. I actually liked the fact that I have two boys. I, I, I don't know if we'll have a third or not. So I like that my older son Carter if we're only going to have to, I think I prefer to have the same same gender. So you know, you grow up as brothers as opposed to appoint a girl. If we do eventually go for third, which I don't know if we do or not. I will be absolutely pulling to have a girl there, but but wind up seeing. But Alex wound up winning for the name that. It was my wife's winning pick here a beat out. Luke was my choice, and then we also considered grant and Everett and and so, yeah, that wand up being real quick though, so get this. And I, I do want listener feedback on this as well. And I want you to be honest with me too. So. He was born on September, thirteenth, so September twelfth. So we picked the names reach boy and girl and doing this, not knowing that we would have the child. The next day he came early. He was earlier than the scheduled c section. And so. So we pick the names and we were going to go with Heidi for girl because Heidi, I referenced the social security list. It's consistent. You can look at the pattern of name popularity. Heidi has been Chilin in the three hundreds for sixty years in terms of how popular it is overall. It never gets into the top one hundred and never dress down into the seven or eight hundred. I was like, you know what that's common enough, but not not crazy, comet, Heidi norlander. It's got a very Swedish vibe to my wife and I totally loved it..

"You're not gonna see as many prospects as you would normally see. Kentucky's guys are identified very early on recruiting off of top fifty list and in. Players who are going to be exposed for years, but. It's going to hurt mid majors and lawmakers. That's undeniable. And when we ask more than one hundred college coaches like the people, these rule changes actually affect and basically nobody says that they improved the system. People think they made it worse or it's about the same, but like almost nobody. In fact, I think literally nobody told me, yes, it's going to be better for the coaches or. Yes, it's going to be better for the players when nobody thinks you actually made it better. What are you doing? Like a plight to anything else in life? Hey, I'm gonna. Go fix this thing. All right, fixed it, but it's not better in any way whatsoever. Then you didn't fix anything. You just you either kept it the same, or you made it worse and the overwhelming majority of college coaches think that the changes to the calendar and what events are going to exist in which ones won't where they can go and where they can't like the overwhelming majority think that. The incident either made things worse for them and for players or kept it about the same for them. And in about the same for players, almost nobody thinks that the system is improved for coaches or players and. I agree with them by the way, and I think most people do than than what was the doing. Why would you implement these changes? If nobody thinks they're good? Why? Why would you implement these changes when the men who are who are most directly affected by them? Do not think you're actually helping in any way whatsoever. You've either kept things the same or you've made them worse. That means you fell by definition. Yeah. I mean this, this goes back to the commission issue and getting recommendations from the NBC. I mean, and then you've got coaches basically. So many of the coaches I spoke with said the NABC is out of touch. It relies on the voices of a select few who don't who don't represent the feelings and leanings of the majority within that organization. And if you really wanted to try and bottom line, a lot of this stuff establishes a commission puts the wrong people on the commission, the commission and relies on a lot of the stuff on the the recommendations don't come from a point of a democratic point of view, but a select few guys establish voices who've been in that. And so then those recommendations are fired back at the commission. The commission takes those interprets them as they may, and this is what you get as a result. And so few people are happy in the end. I feel like I've run out of things to Yemen. Let's have a great great Labor Day weekend. Enjoy your college. Football. Enjoy your night. Southern weather. Cultural also marks the other weather. It's hot, bro. It's hot and humid. It's miserable here. Well, I figured it might be getting a little chillier, but you know, give that another month, I guess. But but yeah, no, listen college. Football's arrival also means college basketball is in to to far behind. So we thank the listeners for for sticking with us through this season. We are happy to chat with each other and by proxy chat with you, we're getting there slowly, but surely and all intentions, our podcast next week, but I might as well just have a second child do here soon here, but I do not believe that that child will arrive before our next scheduled podcast. All intentions will be talking with the in a matter of five to seven days.

"I think that's the toughest tossup eight nine or i took for tech but like whatever you know who who knows i took virginia tech as well and so congressional alabama we are in agreement there which means the tide are gonna win they have fifteen losses let's let's not forget about that listening for junior tech which has by the way win over virginia is almost a little bit underrated there that game is in pittsburgh i will be there if the snow allows me it's coming down pretty couldn't connecticut i'm supposed to fly out tomorrow villanova genentech alabama all those games are going to be in pittsburgh i've got villanova purdue and i think that there's a good possibility in this region gp that we could have seeds fit but as i said like florida texas tech west virginia which toss state all these teams are possibilities i have wichita state beating villanova never mind do i yes i do okay i just brought up my bracket 'cause i wavered this was the savior and wichita state villanova whereby to that i was like what do i want to do what do i do i switched it over so i just lie i've which state in hilly date they're the oldest team experience wise in the field and villanova's had this weird street going every tournament they've been in since two thousand nine which has been every single tournament except one year they either end their season in the last weekend or the first weekend at the tournament they never go out and this week sixteen early date i feel like that's going to change this year i'll take the shockers to beat villanova that game would be in boston if that were the case and the final four pick looted too early.
