Want to have very good Boise State came up pregnant they're building on the road network we have an opportunity to. We can't test rescue them you were aware that regards to in all our schedule at that point and it played 78 games into the season. And have a chance to catch SeaWorld would be against equality opponents so we're we're disappointed about but we know that the sometimes enough to get to a mother nature she's. Beaten. The majority are ugly side. Well now you got the damn city classic and I think a lot of people are pumped for this the second year of this tournament. We just talked to a snowstorm there's a good chance another snowstorm that's that's the end of this week. And you guys play South Dakota on Friday is there a contingency plan if like 567 inches come down or do you guys play the game as is anyway. Good question on the horizon right now we don't have to travel so we're going to be here it's. They're good totality part of what it came that I have to travel in and then their ability game so. I'm sure that the with the recent. Dues paying out about the forecast coming in there should the directors I have enough start the discussion about. What happens if it does really give that back where they can't do it and that you may be some. Some situations where maybe talk about a plan B here or something in regard to just how we're gonna go out still playing the tournament. Will. It was obviously very excited about the time I'm very excited about having an opportunity to play it. A genocide you know accounts among the quality opponents South Dakota. I'm thrust that we've been awhile since we've played against so we hope that we don't have enough to know what we have to. You know wait you know way more days to already been scheduled for us to argue that players can't there's always a risk of just. Not stents are not been devastation up you don't have to games that you need to schedule. Well how excited are you coach to go into this tournament Indian city classic play in front all the great basketball fans here in the city and then potentially you get to try to knock off an organ state team. Think a lot of people they disassociate. Oh it's the turn because it's called the DMZ to closet with organ state. To lock in that building and maybe have a little swagger look it up and notice the house that that I built when I played. Well we we always look an opportunity to play them can be evolved to great department policy does produce department. This. Opponents for us we get to challenge ourselves to test ourselves against them. Some some pain to gonna give us some challenges. And it's also for me just from recruiting standpoint there's not a cast have. And be involved that build them my number I have from the rafters and Kara. They argue that a little bit. Be able to you know go back to a place where. City has been great to me the fan base is doing great all the support they've given me in my fab sort. It's exciting that excited to have you know we talk about Iraq and some local kids have a chance to play in that building has welcomed. In elevates Schmidt has so many long term source close to such a long time another route to. On the floor plans find their friends and how many and so yeah. Just not that it's great for him and his family involved dictator and justice Marshall. It took but the local kids should they get a chance to play at a bill that would basically ditched a professional team player so it's great. Now retired military for a coach of the Portland pilots you can follow Montclair at Terry Porter at thirty and you can hear them all season long don't forget over on 910 ESPN Portland. Our sister station and yeah I just get back to the weather real quick I do wanna ask yeah I mean you're from Milwaukee where we know the weather is a little different than it is here in Portland beat you played him a lot different had you played at a Lockheed Stevens slamming he had set up a run in the NBA in Minnesota. Yeah I mean obviously the level. You know deceit that fifth that's when it comes through when they talk about storms you know 24 hours euphoria hours now. And it's talk about the amount of smoke all you can that's not really that much or throw it noted that it. It's kind of funny but you know you think about it I thought somewhere. We are I expected and I consider much up for talking about Baylor is not something we're we're prepared to have that that was no fault because we'll have the machinery. And we don't have the type of infrastructure become a deal with that no topics such a short period it. People get carried out by its prior dictate that they can't neglect the ice and everything and not have to deal with skeptical about custom Java blood drive with that. Yesterday the traffic's a lot easier when it snows lot of people just stay home than on drug in the freeways are open up we're talking with Terry Porter a coach. A the pilots in you mentioned kind of the cool factor of having your kids. Are giving your kids the opportunity to play at the modus sinner and play in front of those rafters for the blazers play in. He added on top of that I mean your your hopefully taken Oregon State this weekend and you got a game coming up next week against Portland State. Is there a kind of an added I'm no Jews or incentive when you play a team that's in state that that may be these kids were recruited buyer turned down by beating. Little more motivation for games like that. I think the players enjoy it I think the players talk about bragging rights you know obviously. There's always. Some bragging rights involved but overall effect. It's in regards to our program is just great to be able to out compete with two games. What do in the state and try to build some type of rivalry and duplicity to united. Come up to watch quality college basketball and in this city has been such a great basketball fan base that's professional level and at the college level. And so it's great to have I think those topics are actually gangs. Not just for both the alumni and the student the student base to cap perhaps. Some some tests to brag a little bit more important to spot to have to the student athletes have a competition and I'm aware. This city can come together and you know still root for their colors and that there are programs and fine. And so loved what's special about being an important bit in the state of organ. I think you'd be pretty impossible coaching get into this conference you take this job you wanna turn it around right away I think I just feel like can correct me if I'm wrong. I feel like it almost be impossible to not be paying attention to the team that's really been dominating this conference in games Agha. I'd be hiding in their games on TV in the office seen what they've done they've beaten Arizona. And Iowa State obviously destroyed Washington up at the channel even paying attention again that has so far this year. Yeah have been very attentive politicians and our conference and how they do just to Pakistan. Watch them play get a feel fatigued this year and so. You know decided obviously that came a step up to their David Platt the most dominant. So early. I think there you dated dated pride in the expected because they got a lot of new pieces that they're trying to mode put together for their process but. Guatemala's watch in the Apollo the team to do. Now on just Kamal personal expense just to wish him well again out in our conference games you always watch it. He's the schools do well next step outside to conference which are also trying to gather. Commission but watch them play it from you guys play Abdul on the conference plays so. Without a doubt it was done a good job of competing outside the conference has done a good job of hole in their home but. And he talked about what can gaga has been able to do up to this point has been very impressive. Me Tiger Woods Terry Porter Portland TrailBlazer legend is that coach of the Portland pilots at Terry Porter thirty. On Twitter you can hear the pilots all season long on 910 ESPN Portland. Our sister station you know last night in the NBA Terry we we saw a couple head coaches around the league lose their cool a little bit Terry Stotts what app for the rest a little bit in LA Doc Rivers did you Luke Walton got tossed in LA in the first quarter the first quarter aside I'm Kerry assassin did do you know although the worst you've ever just lost your mind an official and what color was it set the off. 000. I think if I hectic again and I got kicked out of the game bird it's it's always been I think preparing that. That Boris rob situation this consistency. So some talk that maybe issued about a week particularly. You got a bad whistle. But a lot of it is stems from consistency substance called it white and and not call that the other and so that subject or maintain that's where coaches really. She would guest directory suggested stripes because they don't see the consistency at both ends of the floor. And last night. Did what some but the blazers and the corporate damn effective. Are called that's got went offline I think he's had some legitimate beef from because what not consistently against Don Payne. And what was caller adapt it to play at that stretch of the game importance you the time of the game and so. I'll also see that meant something where. In order to carry some people might say that that character out hit their way out acute. Got a ticket for the guys that got on the floor at all melodic and made public players. Like to see their coach engaged and call them as well and getting. Out there and compete for those guys in the emerald cut out 5050 calls you wanna call him the it's great to see that. You know he's strong he's got about 4000 guys informed. After I'm on the floor. Well and coach I do wanna ask you about 26 games into the year for the blazers I'm just curious is there kind of a watermark for coaches exacts and etc. around the league of X amount games into his season you know who your team is this 26 games enough to say. This is just kind of who the Portland trailblazers are. I think every coach kind of figured try to figure out look at what it is the fifth seed in the morning of the 25 and I think again. I'm better for them out Victor right word because it took so many new cases that are trying to figure out of the new pieces had a good enough stretch of games. To play and get a feel for what they are now thinking. I think there's because of injuries among things has taken place. There's still trying to see how that all the playing well and they're not they're out for sure exactly what. Now what their identity did and so not stamp plop victors goes the more process to being. Aren't about what the teams go quite point four. To do it and doing evaluation going non. When it comes to that. And it it in the team became a different based on ISS on what the roster looks like. I'm Carly if they had injuries implicated that's got to change the way they've had to go about. Trying to play games where before it was something where they had to accept. Rotation and they've had a chance to do and get a strong enough. Sense based on body of work to see where there. We'll collect I wanna get Johnny here on this one you guys play in the damn city classic like I mentioned South Dakota on Friday in an organ state to on Sunday as an organ state alarm let me just say good luck in the game please take it carefully nice and gently with my beavers are not have a degree year. I thought that. Well we hope we get that we were worried about tropical approach to the very strong opponent and we are excited about you know look it's an art on our roster. Just not a dictator dose more in. I'm wondering out of Victor fans. Deport the market had a chance to dish out map players come out last views just. Majority coached. It doesn't paint masks and there hasn't been down some players Tom. In the state before he stopped 25 scorers in top twenties and assistant. Top 25 still so he's just to enjoy that lots and a base for every dad come to work that I have a chance to coach him and village. Just tried to teach and learn from them as much as in Iraq could teach him about a great camp about a book.
