I welcome back endurance Sprague hookers Thursdays are almighty to follow us on Twitter at certain Sprague. Coming up here in fifteen minutes from now talk a little NFL action but are really excited for our next guest Seth Greenberg one of our favorite guys. The chat groups with access on hoops is an ESPN college hoops analyst he joins us on the Gil mortgage. Mobile hot line set thanks as always for the time we always appreciate it's let's get right into the organ docs they've got an interesting season so far this year a couple of early losses. But absolutely rolling sends them what's kind of the biggest difference you've seen from them from early on when they stumbled to now when they've been on this long winning streak. We'll always joke adult books back expert get. What you got to figure that out now I mean. It took him a little bit not disable it and but you know blocking. Getting to understand how crucial but wanted to play the ball was getting stock a little bit in his hands early decision. Getting stopped the same way. Are developing a deeper section mean you know you go complaint seven guys to play in eight guys that it takes time to develop that chemistry. He's played Pritchard had you played benching you played together you know just can't think during your team out. It just because they returned a core group it's still a different team. And different chemistry different. It takes time to develop that trust but Dana is is that it is like a mad scientist she's so good at it. And they are awfully good right now. How do they stack up in your opinion with last year's one seed in the NCAA tournament. He's going to I think that direct jab I think they've missed cook a little bit and missed that you know that position purse say. But I. Looked at got a little bit better despicable versatility in the back court. You know that you know they're a year older. If Boucher got to stay healthy healthy. And and you know that they can't get. An all American girl she's had struggled it was good it is that they can't get complacent so to speak culture and you know right up to the bitter end in and a lot of ways so I think they're similar every team is different visions at church human relation to the field. The field a little bit better this year but I think they're awfully good. Now we're talking with Seth Greenberg ES being colleges analysts even follow him on Twitter assets on groups in and we take a look. At the back to standings at this point I mean pretty clear top three Arizona and Oregon both five and on conference sixteen into overall. And UCLA they're on a loss of the year was out wild finish in Eugene where they lost on the game winner. From Dylan broke three that you were talking about what do you make another of the top of the pack told the season Arizona UCLA and how they compare with organ. While the use salacious so that I offensively and they get six starters not five starters that's a good they are they do have stepped up front. Balls maybe gave me easier we know that now. You know that's great defense team but they're capable. Arizonans want it's it's prize we solve an armed forces classic second search. But man they're playing well right now are marketed it's been really special. I bruised and French admiral Malkin to prove to. And if they get trio back now you've got one more score which scuttle what they can use to takes pressure off for them. And if belated shedding they've been really good and extras that practicing so. He helped his transition back with their table be you know pretty pretty seamless so. You got those three and a new USC is still play a world score a pretty good. You know witches is committed it didn't lead us legitimate. I think cal would rapid. You know with bird and you know they're they're good back court to keep particularly as good dose threes I've definitely separate themselves. Who are the top two coaches in this conference. All the steps that situation it's a very well coached conference that it is today is that it is definitely in the tragic day and ensure all right. John Miller and united charge them terrific job and I love the way he's great to culture and and it's fantastic to offer will be back conversation. Because you're in a matter wished they rebuilt the thing but I did it chart take relief. And that just an incredible jobs at thirteen. Well and I think people just north of us in the state of Washington there's been some rumblings about Lorenzo Romo art no doubt the guy to recruit he's got amazing talent and even next year's class he's got the number one player in high school hoops coming to Seattle to play for him. Obviously might have the number one pick him Martell full plane from but they're two and four in conference 99 overall. What do you do if you're Washington you're sitting here you have many returning written awhile now but he still bringing in talent like that. Yeah I think it opens on any ye shipped out in the east east it would your coach every time and you say correctly what what are we need you to get better. And these are our expectations and they've had a conference comes our conversation and and it ended the goals and expectations are clear what that conversation didn't. I you have to go from there emerges a proud guy he's not going to be if he doesn't think you can get it done you know he'll probably take the decision not experience. But he has recruited well they have capital of the study old they've been very young they play beyond. The gate but they have lost momentum and hurting so it's innovating out that you could what depreciation and look what happened would usually a year ago so. In I don't know relationship with his athletic director right on the life of its contract I don't know to buy up that status. I would probably have conversations are what you know why are we where we wore on what you think were mentioning what you know why you were close but why are why can't we. Went through it. How what's the difference we do those years you were going to vehicular term and every year. And tobacco reported that is really really good yeah yeah they want dignity he left. Don't be shocked now if Porter would leave let them write and they would just reboot and other institutions. To do that the test fired country. Art and you know that he's going to be with you wherever you go. You're pretty you're you're going to be pretty appeal. Extremely just got a chance to watch him. A couple weeks back less rob imitation idle players Seth Greenberg online we love talking with them colleges assets on hoops. Onto her I'm curious to ask you this because we've debated in a few times on our show because Bill Walton is called a couple or in games recently. Do you see are late game I sticks out. I just curious it regimen when somebody like you who know I mean you you obviously know everything there is no about college that's why you turn on the TV and Bill Walton the color commentator what what runs through your mind. That's the most amazing player drivers like I don't understand why he didn't I about why we call we are now etched. Why don't we just let these guys reduces equipment which could beat. Every database in the guys dropped a whopping. For the past welcome you know he knows more about. That's the person that's the great. And he's probably by about luck. You know he's incredible to me about. You guys it would be partially about blog and and I got to run credibility to the arsenal what was he like he hasn't talked to was broadcast partner. Until it starts. -- conversation the number so he'll walk in and you'll be in your shoot around supposedly irk you'd for the game he'll just walk giving you know. Talking to players. Almost dangerous you know who knows what he's shaking your piece. You just fill in the minds of the stuff visit me. I'll but he is great. You know. Once a week is good for me why so we got much struggle. I did Johnny on this who we know you're against it real quick organ state struggling a lot they might go winless in conference play they don't have trees tingle obviously but they were just in the tournament a year ago. I think your resume is pretty good because you went from the tournament and then you have scenes where you dink go what's the most difficult thing rebounding from a tournament team to the next. Well it's to replace and irritate her. Maine and staying healthy elected I was really fortunate guy I had about a seven year run and it and Virginia Tech and it. You know we were in the know we're Fieger would care what program and the issue she we got a six year run where. We don't like the one tournament and we were the fourth which probably so. You are staying consistent as far as we're losing an impact player like they've been impacted to get so many different places aren't going to lose evidently solution expressed player. That's a lot to replace. So and I don't get deterred it'll quickly people fought and now they've got to be have to have a little bit of patience because. They're basically playing with a young team that doesn't expect banks to impact guy that you know. Help it would almost close game. Now he has Seth Greenberg always enjoyed the conversation assets on who silence there ESPN college hoops. Analysts thanks as always we know you're against it we appreciate the time out here playing. I'd appreciate you have to be secular much.
