And wow completely agree that we had them any cheaters in our fan base about that's not cheating it's just called fun. When it is I just some video you haven't seen baker may fields arrest. Video was released to being tackled by cops in the dashboard cam when he was he was running from the cops as he gets I'm. I'm curious Alex ad how good a shape was the top an economy that's a divisional quarterback is a good athlete. I said the same thing when I saw the report it's not that bad they he takes like four steps like cops noticing they're trying to take off so they just take you know there was. That was what I was like super bad scenes the fastest. Just run away from everybody no not quite like that we got a lot to get to hear in the second hour of the show we'll talk about Inzaghi is a one CD trust them this year note how far you taken the zags. Crunch time mini MBA I love the NBA's much as anybody they absolutely were an embarrassment on Saturday night we'll talk about that. Operating cooks is been traded to New England on Friday evening it. Is he a diva there's some reports that may be kind of reflect him being a little diva ish. But let's start our our second hour with some NFL looked around as we do every Monday at 1 o'clock. Frozen tundra. Game he eats. And starting New York. Where the jacks in Jay Cutler. Are in contact with it. The the most jets moved the ball for jets fans he's quarterback problems to be solved Jay Cutler potentially going to New York oppose the question earlier is it harder to be a jets manner a browns fan because the jets. They've got. Talent seemingly across they've had great defense is Sanchez got him to two AFC title games they and he just can't find a quarterback. The put him over the top vs the browns that are you know. They've got their own turmoil and issues as well they have these fourth worst point differential last year. Through my jet I don't know I've realized they were and I knew they were bad Goldman they were gone our conference call article the football the browns for the worst niners second worst in the rams and in the jets' five and eleven they're outscored may have 134 points last yet the guy you wanted to pay long term Ryan Fitzpatrick was in real done last year had hit hate easy write easy and and I am trying to win. And to bring up Ryan Fitzpatrick are they give up four or nine points defense sucked right couples or anybody's we will we all have those Purdue. I guess I don't know what's the solution here how how does this all any of your problems to go find a quarterback you're probably gonna have to over pay who's fit in did you everywhere he's gone. I believe he had one winning season and his entire career in Chicago he had telling our Allen would it take him to get sideways with the New York now this is that this is get this has disaster written all over that they jets need to go browns snowed in just tank just tank maybe there's not franchise quarterbacks out there on the market right now Tony romo's marketing go to New York he's gonna go somewhere Austria's chance to win. I did just take it up for a couple of years Jay Cutler's not consulting and adding romo's go to fox media analyst Cory go to the gym and quarterback but the question is does Todd Bowles. Does he get the benefit of the doubt next year they do you suck and try to get a quarterback I don't think he does does Woody Johnson really likes to win. Let's move on in our NFL look around from one and it's our AFC east team to another. Malcolm Butler. Remember his name was floated out there for branding Cox I was gonna potentially be traded. He's he's he's sniffing around and other teams because of a team offers him a contract the patriots can declined to match but they have to receive first round compensation. And Malcolm Butler looking to get out of New England he's not dig in that five anymore it's pretty evident to team doesn't wanna give him huge money. They just signed testifying Gilmore and so Malcolm Butler could be on the move looking around the NFL yet this I have read a great article. This morning and he's added the latest victim of the patriot way right I mean they develop guys they draft them I'm not necessarily completely you know and Amer but comes out of a smaller school. I turns out to be a great defense in fact we all remember from the Super Bowl now it's time from to get paid what do you do they're gonna get rid of him and I think in the long term contract he went out and signed. The player that most deemed to be the top defense back on the free agent market panic that upset and as well so. I have no problem mouth about their being frustrated with the way the patriot street and he just these understand this is the way New England does things is not the first he won't be the last. As long as the dollar checks there aren't we move on to Philly where the Eagles are bringing back the quarterback dairy queen where. Former Chip Kelly protege. Knicks bulls he's come back out into the fold for the Philadelphia Eagles two years 111000007. Million guaranteed and now some are suggesting that she's Daniels. Will be released if the Eagles are released Daniels after signing him to that big backup quarterback contract last year. They will have to pay him five million dollars but nick pulls back in Philly. Since he's been illegal out Lauren five years this point because his name has been brought so often but it is only his fifth here in the NFL he BS what he has his back up forum. Eyes get a backup Carson once played three games last year three touchdowns no picks. Whatever and it falls is brought up though the first thing that always comes to my mind. Is the fact that he had a season and thirteen games that he threw 27 touchdowns and two interceptions. Think that might be one of the weirdest anomalies in the history of professional sports because you've probably never gonna be a starter again. We'll be a career back up the fact he was able to death for one season in only thirteen games. It still blows my mind yes some other big stuff going numb potentially with the Steelers as it was announced late beyond bell. It's gonna have groin surgery now I was reading an article on one of the Pittsburgh newspaper website it doesn't sound like this is really can have much in effect the Steelers really are worried about it. But I he's gonna have surgery from an injury he suffered during the wild card game against the dolphins and it. The Steelers are also hosting Donta hightower but should be huge issue and help with the defense Allah to be a huge out for their defense was that the lady unveils surgery I don't think this is a big one time to its its Armenian groin injury suffered in the playoffs is you mentioned. I's gonna go through surgery and if they are ready to go for next year inconvenient he waited until we get the franchise tag oh for sure how many did know about the injury does for our laziness like artists and art business I mean I just that there's just always gonna be a concern around him and any hasn't rupees always suffered missed out sometimes majors sometimes minor injuries the ability now for four years. And he's only played sixteen games once it was his second year in the Lee went for thirteen hundred yards his last three played twelve now granted they sat out one game at the end of the year against Cleveland I believe in week seventeen. Has anything to gain so we'd be missed three games because of intrigue here before only played six games his rookie season and only played thirteen games so. I know this is a minor surgery just kind of brings back in the forefront how banged up he's running backs get how it's so difficult to trust them long term it's our NFL look around going around the National Football League a lot of news out there this song was just announced the markets where defense event for the Broncos. He's officially announced his retirement in his goodbye note he says long term health and quality of life outweigh the spark and passion to play that I once. Had said people still want in the play but he's ready to walk away he finishes his career with a 130 half career sacks. Eight on the all time list and I'll say this. As a guy that never like a Dallas Cowboys and he was a long time cowboy house. DM and I respect him he was a scene. You even imagine missing game in his first eight seasons he missed the read his ninth and final season with the cowboys and that's the way he played as an undersized. Speed throwing himself in the offensive line miracle. That he didn't you know to skate cut. And given me blown out or something at some coy in his career and they know it. As a cowboy fan it was sad to see him finally go. To Denver but glad he got a ring concedes serve he sure played Super Bowl caliber caliber defense for that team down and carry that defense furlong time. Yeah he deserved during 35 years old I like seeing guys walk away when they're still playing at a decent level you never want to see players being shelled and other former selves and signed I appreciate that he's doing and 35 when he probably could hang on. For a couple more years eighth all time in history the NFL in sacks for the 138 half sacks and and indeed you go back and you think about that offseason Denver have a ribbon 2014. When they sank TJ ward they sent Emmanuel Sanders they sign on DeMarcus Ware and and it paid off form I mean they gambled big and free agency Peyton Manning obviously was a big part of it as well. They gambled big and created seen Atlanta in the Super Bowl and and that was that go down as as a big piece someone of the best defensive units I think we've ever seen win a Super Bowl. Because Peyton Manning couldn't throw a ball thirty yards a night game they could do inning on offense the defense is that carried them to a championship he was a big part of that one final note. The cowboys don't know what they're doing the Tony Romo which is pissing everybody off the NFL but that's totally Jerry Jones so I kind of appreciate it. And haven't released in name and traded them and he's got offers Denver Houston or fox to be an analyst basically seems like his three options now catalyst is fox. Fox thinks so highly of themselves that they throw that out there thank you sources report fox once Tony Romo is an analyst they want their place John Lynch. You know ask Sherlock. Sounds great and I think the guys that wants to play a little football I think Houston or Denver will be signing him in the very short term. Just doubling sources of Chris for like three straight days every source was saying he's going to be traded and now every sources say he's going to be if. Rare occasion Adam Schiffer was wrong. I'm recently released last Thursday was a police still hasn't been released yet so we'll see what cowboys and Tony Romo are. Romo are gonna ultimately end up doing theirs or NFL with around we do every Monday at 1 o'clock let's stick in the NFL. Because branding coax was traded doing to New England. On Friday evening. What's odd about what this means how do you view this trade as an N a non patriot NFL fans is just (%expletive) you off and also. Is Brandon cooks a diva. Some would suggest that. May be years we'll talk about the next on 1080 the fan certain welcome back in 119 here on 1080 the fan boo boo coming up in 912 minutes we'll talk about the and zag and they got one seed. A formal zags go are you finally put Inzaghi and a final four national championship situation what happened last and there are once seen. They lost. Studied at seasons they did a great regular seasonal also they don't make a final four is a one seed this year. Disappointing. Absolutely it is we'll talk about that 130 when his display your hot tea. At this came out on Friday evening so winning gets talk about this. The saints traded wide receiver Brandon cooks the former beavers go into New England in exchange for a package that includes the patriots first round pick this year number 32. The team confirmed on Saturday the patriots sent New Orleans a 20173. Round selection that is pick 103. Let's see that was the pick that they got from Cleveland for the Jamie Collins deal in exchange for the saint's fourth round pick. So not a bad package but branding cuts on his way to New England now if there's a couple questions I have about this from both sides one. For New England what's the long term plan here obviously he has another year under his contract is rookie contract they can then pick up a fifth year option and I believe what shall pay him about eight million dollars so. In the short term you haven't for two seasons is this a case replay for two years to get rid of them or does Belichick like him that much. And he'll be one of the few lone young players that he's willing to give the long term contract to because Brennan Coke has got to want it. He put up good numbers in New Orleans is gonna continue to put up good numbers and New England now maybe not quite the same level because of the way Tom Brady spreads the football around. But he's gonna be a study in this offense and he still young so what's their long term planner running is something that's really inching to watch and the other part of it is. Was there not a better offer out there I know the third rounder suite is a deal little bit because we heard New Orleans and turned down new England's offer of the number 32 pick for trucks. So they throw in the third round pick which is I mean to draft picks from Brandon cooks as a decent haul. What was Tennessee not willing to give up a little bit more was Philadelphia not willing. To give up a little bit markers are a lot of swirling rumors about other team's interest dead in Tennessee. Reportedly had a standing offer off forum on Friday so. I was somewhat surprised there wasn't a bigger return for New Orleans in this case. But but just for a wide receiver and cokes I mean I loved watching a minority state there was always questions could you do in the NFL video the body. I I never bought any any of that beacon was the stuff I mean their offense for a year was shot minions lobbying the football up and Brandon cooks going up to making place. That was their offense the dude is stud. And he's gonna eat eat and do it's gonna continue to benefit from having great quarterbacks around. Yep basically everybody I've talked to just buddies in my net love the NFL. I didn't have won that set up that's pretty cool most of them responded WTF. This sucks. Because he is like get a weapon like branding cooks and what he's capable of rich get richer and now you got a New England you're gonna play alongside Juli and Ellen Malcolm Mitchell. Rob Gronkowski. I am in dolby thrown in their own little bit like they already have weapons and Tom Brady by the way the only hit I believe their offense has taken was Bennett Bennett went to Green Bay yet but they replace him with Dwayne Allen as are hoping Allen stays healthy Allen can be very versatile tight end in terms of where you put him in what kind of you know options you choose d.s and schematic week. So you look at new England and you think man are you kidding me New England gets that piece. I said this before maybe this is a one year. You know work out situation I don't buy I think doing is gonna sign this kid long term and people pointed this out this may be a new approach Newman takes where. They don't like to overpay on the free agent market that's not who they are Malcolm Butler playing case. It is a young stud player at a key position for what they need with Tom Brady and potentially Jimmy go rock below. Maybe they take a different approach here in the coming years of a value innings who. And when Nate pace certain players they did it was Stephon Gilmore they may be doing now operating day Disney gave Gilmore what I huge five year deal forty million guaranteed throw more year sixty million dollar deal. Designing New England just doesn't do often and I did the age is obviously huge part of this I mean you look at their wide receivers right now. Element I believe is north of thirty Ammann dole is north of thirty Rob Gronkowski has health concerns especially with the back he just never know. If that's gonna act up and Brandon cooks is 23 years old he's still vastly studs and the second. He stepped in in the NFL and in reading about this trade is weakening a big part of the love affair. Was the fact that New Orleans and New England apparently practice together reach a the last two seasons you know they do that training camp for the two teams scrimmage and and I joint practices for a week or two NDE fell limited two years ago odd to some of the plays he was making against guys like Malcolm Butler didn't matter who was throwing in the ball. He was making great plays so he's clearly had his eyes out I'm Brandon cooks and and I've while I'm happy for a local products having a chance and now when in a higher level and go to a great offensive play with somebody like Tom Brady. I do agree with the fact of are you kidding me. But of all the places of all the teams that could get better on our guys and if that is like I nobody could stop that offense last year with outgrown taos ski. And I you get gronkowski backed potentially next year and you have Brandon cooks good luck yet the other thing. Too that's kind of been rumbling in this have been rumbling since the season. Is branding Cox's. Character might not be the right word is spreading cooks in the saints locker room this year. Some suggesting part of the reason the saints were so willing to just par with a guy they just drafted what 23 years ago. Of the diva some suggest they he may have had some diva like behavior. Because there was one specific game. Where he grew really frustrated it was a game where against the rams that they won 49 to 21 net. And he was very fresh when his lack of involvement on the offense the point where he took dead in sir Graham and say and said they tell you it's a business. Well I guess I have to turn into we businessman. Hash tag shoot your arrows. And he did not like the idea of how he's being used within the saints offense he had frustrations with Sean Payton. It frustrations just with the organization in general. Mike Thomas stepped up this year will lease need in two years now has proven to be a pretty asset ya and cook study was more of used it as like a clear out type receiver. More than a primary option. So it's aid it's a small blip because he's still so young but you kind of wonder is cooks. A little diva fish. As a listener points out of the Centex he is a wide receiver right. He is I mean. How how many right. How many wide receivers in the NFL are not demon but I just you know I I've interacted with this kid a little bit I covered him when he first started organ statement Adam on the show how to run I know we're trying to get him back on now that he's a patriot talked about the upcoming season. When stories come out like this and not flattering and I never had. Any interactions with him more I thought otherwise nor did I talk to any coaches yeah that were close to a net indicate otherwise you'd always been kind of viewed is this huge team guy like only one that's why care about you they orange state guide you just wonder how much of the money factor plays an aspect of this abiding get my touch is my stats suck I'm not gonna get back contract sixty. That's for sure something you think about I mean he's got there are humans we would all think about that a clear in his shoes and an especially may be looking at it from an organizational standpoint of are they not giving me the ball because they dole my numbers to be big so they don't have to pay me. It's so they can get to the offseason and say well. Yulia this many catchers and as many yards therefore you're not one of these elite level wide receivers were not getting given that long term contract you want. If it's edged such a short shelf life in the NFL for these guys that whenever they get opportunities to get paid. They're gonna take advantage of it and I'm hope when he gets that long term beyond New England because he deserves it the way that he's played so far. But it did sail wide receivers a diva and once the football Morgan's frustrated at not having is a bigger role in the offense. Let's act like he's the only one thing that that's a pretty common theme theme among except position. Now somebody says I didn't like humans beavers and I have more reasons to hate him now ladies and New England while he just arrived the team literally just Tweety cooks is in the building so he's officially in New England you'll probably have as press conference to say hello to everybody that is a patriots fan. I like as they were comforting to try to get them on he's incredibly busy but he doesn't live here in the off season. Sammy says by divas standards oh O'Dell Beckham junior I'll take cooks and a heart beat him when he compared divas is not close there. Now I don't I think I'm taken O'Dell. It's a talent standpoint sure you have a team yeah elderly taking coaxing you know down yet but if you're comparing just level and even us again and oh yeah divas standards Imus and I don't beavis and I'll back him as a much bigger team I was asleep in the idea that how much would that play a factor. In terms of who you would want on your team some branding coach is going to New England. And the rest the NFL should just quit just give up man give we'll talk in 2000 and what nineteen or eighteen whatever the hell yeah and is Brady gone hackers retire ready and Brady just leave John Harbaugh already said he's gonna play forever he's the greatest quarterback of all time. And he just go so other teams have a shot here. Just feels impossible and it. Let's get back in the NCAA turn to Macon zag. Gets a one seed how far the zags get a gold. Is it disappointing if they're not the final four we'll talk about that next. Lebanon based not so loud and a BA. Asked. Every time I hear you air base up here these cooler and by the air base of tiger really down here but he played it here every. Elected some. Every time you're designing that room. I love that movie island I don't base my. I Jovan grade Shia cities like let's see you later. I gotta crunch time the NBA had been done all duds this weekend that pissed me off I did then if you had a different opinion and that tonight. I'm very yeah like the first five and I'm what is wrong with you so much. I would talk about that coming up in ten minutes if you miss it over the weekend let's start some good zag or move so good is that it's been a debatable team on the issue all season long slide guards West Coast Conference homer and we like apple couldn't prob the bear a little bit. So they go thirty and why they finish up these and tell you what I witnessed in my own eyeballs is behave when the West Coast Conference tournament which at this point seems like it was a month ago. And they get a number one old and a number not over Albany number one seed in the west region. The other teams in their region Arizona. Is the two seed Florida State is the three seed West Virginia. Is the four seed. Notre Dame is a five seed I think this is the west is going to be the easiest bracket to. Work through I I don't know how Arizona and Inzaghi and don't end up in the elite eight. Barring some catastrophic injury or some weird happening. Barring major upsets and that's what we love about the tournament but just West Virginia is a good team I think I got West Virginia going always badges and database of course I'm just curious for people committed his 55305 didn't do you by Gonzaga as a legitimate national title contender. I know they had some good nonconference wins at quite a ways ago in Saint Mary's is a good team they beat Saint Mary's. A couple of times be abide them as as a legitimate national title contender and on top of that. Did you Bruce for Don Zach. Like as the Cinderella this war off at this point because they were such a great local story when they first were making runs is it's still the same way in terms you're rooting it. Trees. Or they're not your typical mid major team anymore I mean look you got three division one transfers. On name their starting five right now. So. You know it's different from the plucky local upstarts that came you know twenty years ago when they first started this run with Casey calvary and Matt Santangelo. And all those guys in the onion you know the dean and Dick tells of the world. Running through their so. It's. They recruit internationally. They're able to get guys to come from what Missouri talent Washington so Nigel Williams God's people ditching the Washington to go to Jean's day again. That's that's where that programs that so for they also grabbed diet member Pargo from Chicago is a big deal that was a big time I was the other dude for what they've got a local cable turf. Yeah we're church Virginia that was always curious how we ended up at Kentucky in the first place but. Benjamin's so. No I mean but why why Kentucky would. He just didn't fit what else Harry yet terror television as it and it was due in Wiltshire would have been much better off now when begins Agha to begin with note. A listeners say that they've made a final four right now known mores and in the more recent in our economy are still really today it's more or sing got this sweet sixteen in law odd you're looking dim Israeli date in that I made to release date runs when he fourteen when he fifteen a much in up right now they lost to duke in the elite eight. OK so so are we buying them I know your take on this why aren't you love guns and I do you think they have a good as I think I. Arizona as they are now is not a good matchup for. They're gonna have I don't know swipe darn. I think Arizona might be a better I think what they're still so young I don't know if I trust Arizona fully in a game like that vs guys Agha does have the experience yet. No doubt barely experience. Market in the way he's playing right now. Provides all sorts of matchup issues for Inzaghi. So. Because he's too big for Williams to handle one on one. Out on the perimeter Williams Williams is the unsung guy Jonathan Williams said the transfer from Missouri 69 is Kelly a seven foot three wingspan. And allows them to play with car now ski so it doesn't have to run all over the floor defensively he can just play of one man's own in their because Williams can get out. All points of that but the perimeter. And guard guys from 610 to 63. But against market and I don't know what they do if he plays the way did in the pac twelve tournament. How far do you have ongoing in your bracket I've I've readily seriously I think I know do we get ago I have the losing in the second round and northwestern has not gonna happen and that's code northwestern. And it's not gonna happen when it does though they're not playing northwestern legitimately I have I would have been losing in the sweet sixteen West Virginia. I'll always like western I think West Virginia comedian good basketball team CI have them playing Arizona in the elite eight. And I I do give the advantage to Arizona but like I just said Arizona's young team Kansas and Arizona and we are basically the same thing. Incredibly gifted talented teams. Don't know if you can really trust him because they do have those games where. For whatever reason they can have those brain far it's those lapses. Arizona young Kansas discos and those weird fonts are seen that a couple times this year. They're kind of the same thing but of Arizona's playing their a game. And Inzaghi is playing a really good game I think Arizona is the better team got so I have been going in my no doubt in my mind of their playing at a 100% and it's a is that I have I have to exact a losing in the elite eight and I just wonder at what point because this tournament is not an easy thing to win. We said this before play. They don't it'll final four again and this and this is why I brought it up only had a conversation a month or so ago about just pressures are pressure on neinsager it's because of the fact they were probably going to be a one seed and the fact that the landscape of the tournament is that there's just not dominant teams all over the place. That you're gonna run into I don't you know there's a year they can do it this is the year if they can't do it does to them when they get to do that's a swipe cards say soon the final four begins right this year has been so we are to me yes and they don't when their region after I won regular season game all year yet to disappointment guess I don't know what -- comes from because what's gonna change by doesn't come from and he runs Spokane. I don't it's not about a few getting fired it's about the opinion of a view in the sport they just read some beer here's some of the thoughts we haven't pantex line. On. Didn't and a abbey ever really made a run at Butler has more guns out in the Butler Butler is actually made the final four bothered me about Larry back to back now back to manage national championship game and they're always right there is like a top five seat seems like let's he had not by Gonzaga they are pretenders. Another wild in mind because that. RG net that's an argument that I will take issue with because that's the argument it's getting made if they lose again early in his terms like a lot of people feel that way and I know what seems different when you say viewer and can either. I guess. I'm a national title conversation propped up if you look they understand what the West Coast conference's right now. But if you go look at their nonconference schedule they go out other way they play in as many big holiday tournaments is they can. They know they have to go and play the Arizona's and the floored us in all those teams and they have done that consistently over the last decade have to. And show. It they're not abducting anybody they just haven't gotten over the top so don't tell me they're not there at their pretenders. But they haven't gotten all the way to the top yet I understand that but I don't think it would be. Any different to me in Zagat falls in line with Boise State syndrome. They absolutely do they play in a conference that most fields from a national perspective not locally a national perspective people don't really. They don't respect to the level of power five and they view it may say OK they played a nonconference team like they played. And seed Georgia the Georgia Dome and they beat the right Georgia Bulldogs were okay great that's a non conference and that's impressive when my Boise State. And then who'd they play the rest the rest of the whole game you don't blame lanes also if you play two or three games that really have you contested in challenge you like games Agha does every year because I will give them that credit. Comes knocking and Owen Cinderella is gone for Gonzaga zags will concede the date they are overrated yet they're not a Cinderella labels and on for them because they're consistently now as ask top three seed and is against that as a good little team but they're just like Boise State's ability comparison you just made at a London that is like a girlfriend you break up with four different times at some point we just need to move on and accept the fact that they're not love the 121 at all or even go to the title for. And that's that's I think the then the pressure that's on them this year I don't think people trust him at all no they don't bull why should it. Yeah you've been screwed by them before the eyes Orson team last time they were number one seed in the sixteen. For anybody that's actually watched them more then once or twice. This team is put together differently lot different in the traditional tunes Aggie teams you've seen in the past years. Defensively they can stay in every game if they happen to have a cold night shooting that wasn't the case in previous years. And I don't disagree with that at all typified people wondering is why I went to guns act most like tonight. Sad but not go to guy we I doubt it is Portland pilots WCC representation today in jagr zig zag fans getting you know fire about this also somebody wanted to put a wager on the he's like guard so I think Sosa bat if you're so sure guns act is gonna make a solid round -- put in place a wager on it I don't even think they make it to the sweet sixteen he won't I mean here's a big thing I think this stems from a lot of people there's I want you on as a Cinderella right. I think a big point of contention with you'll picking them in this tournament. I think it stems back from the animal arson team for sure that team was so widely regarded he was the player of the year uses stud kid. They went in that term that what was it two or three seed. They also sweet sixteen I'll never forget that he started crying on the floor and is he looked like geez is out there and I think people like me and they got the best hitting college basketball they're supposed to be stacked team make a DM a leading and then he didn't do anything in the NBA which didn't help. Oh and then they give my final fours a one C a few years later. He actually won a multiple championships Anemia. The best NBA prospect I see time on James jagr comes off the bench. Play and that may be about real people. I don't do you buy that app for that reason I able Lawrence Summers trusting god and 55305 what do you think up pressure on guns that are you buying them as final four team also. Just a simple question. As we all have this come tournament time like there's is teams you brain only root for against the year root for her against guns activist and a year. Do you wanna see him go on Iran are you sick and tired of seeing him there just tyra that Nextel will get an annex would do the done the NBA story coming up in the final I'll get back in the blaze as well. And the final hour more on Gonzaga and prince sat next on the tea. Pressure's on us. What's different from. In the past there's just execute in crunch time in history to impeach. When you win this event is phenomenal woman of news that's the lowest on the wall it's. French done or not a look at the hottest topics in sports brought you right crunch. Is 995 per month. So why would you ever pay more for a gym membership big crunch time rusty by French fitness always that 95 a month so why would you ever pay more for your membership. I was out of the glorious housing gains yesterday and I won't be out there today I was out this makes no. Now little Sunday workout and it was nice wife was liking elect. You trying to reel to work out Monday humiliated and an innocent you know what it I will do that and it's a good called life that's a good call I thought it's gonna be a nice day outside the team's gonna be kind of empty it was it was actually really empty I timed that perfectly numbing growing her. And I'm still I'd. When you tell somebody your groin hurts the automatically assume it's from a sex act as it I was about to say I'm still not walking right from Wednesday. Feller and great if you just drops that yeah I didn't know why our nine hurt my leg are still sore from mouth lucky they we are partners after all right. All of lol well all easy easy on those got a part we'll get into the NBA guy game coming up in the final hour also did your dad skipped school. Number thirty seed that's our poll question of the day after its raid on Twitter. Go vote we can also make finesse break Aziz in the process of filling out is like 38 bracket. Throughout the course the show and and over talking god zag and just kind of what you think about the zags and and their chance to make in Iran and just read somebody's got to get back into it. Did you do you root for guns I guess right they did are they one of those teams I know you hate duke duke is your arch enemy come college basketball time they are yet which is hilarious as the boss is a big dude guy standing right there are looking at any yeah and now we go back and forth and it's yeah bribery you do I wore North Carolina shirt on Friday I mentioned something I'm Molly into the studio today like how do you get to see organ didn't he shot back play people all season long and he will it's fun right that we all hate or or don't hate duke but do you root for guns out of his ten year. See here's a day. Contrary to what I just said the last segment. I do kind of root for the Zach as you pull for the zags I can't remember the name of the player. But it was I was it was the year 1999 when they went to the tournament and that team drew me and they wrote in and ever since then. I root for I wasn't as big an Adam Morrison fan is crazy that might sound but I love Derek rather know. I love Jeremy Pargo I've loved a lot of players that they've brought in throughout the years. I tend to root for Ginn zag I do think it's kind of funny when they lose because people like to defend themselves. So toughly but. Yeah overall I refer guns I got a chemistry a couple of thoughts yet Zantac sign. Susan I want them to make yet and he would be fun to watch you make it happen no Arizona could easily lose early Notre Dame could win the region. As sir it's tournament time though he knows what the hell's gonna happen. Some of the zags are over Heidi Tony had to play against competition regularly that is good unlike the West Coast Conference brings they will lose do we really believe. That the defense is strong enough to hold off the top teams in the country of their offenses off and what team in the West Coast Conference and they play they showed you that. Another one I think they are in top tenable offensive end defendant at defensive efficiency. Final four teams usually are so therefore their worth having the conversation recognizing their different. And that team the response that will be well they should they're playing the West Coast Conference held there on that toppled. Offensive and defensive efficiency loan it out and that was another thing that we tyra to swagger thinks of Gonzaga makes a run it changes the perception of the West Coast Conference that we did I just know adamantly disagree with that the same thing about the conference now it's in zag is kind of allow for that comes in a Saint Mary's had a nice run here. BYU is kind of what also seems that's contending with you but it never gets over that proverbial hump. This is Gonzaga it's it's Inzaghi and it's nobody else to have everybody from a national perspective and vitamin a 919. Ritchie friend Richie for an out there from France from Fran Fran from but every member that guy back guy he was cold. Another one Gonzaga is about as overrated as an ABC primetime game you think you got something good in the product arrives it's just a bunch of not staying. A couple more quick thoughts on this Boise State comparison is an equivalent Boise State has big wins in the biggest atmosphere is Oklahoma Oregon. DC united guitar gods are once I mean they beat Arizona non conference that B Florida believe in nonconference. I was state and they've played teams over the years in nonconference the tough part too is the end of Boise State they're playing in a bowl game when there's a million of those. If in Zack and zag is and a tournament where you know you advance and if you don't get to exploit people view is a disappointment you can't compare the end of the season I just use him in. I think most people from a national perspective basically called them the college basketball version of Boise State football yeah. Yes this is kind of way it works any other teams aegis don't root for for whatever reason come tournament time do you just look at your bracket you're like Annan on on the ice and I tend to. Not like Wisconsin. And I can't really tell you why other than usual Ryan was kind of a I'm with the name hole I think everybody has those programs while he's gone by the way the other day we are watching the Big Ten tournament and and produced TV. I just may I hate Purdue. I'm a lie and just always hated Purdue for no reason whatsoever there's got to be a reason I just I don't know what it is the colors the boiler makers the uniforms that quick high school uniforms and onto Purdue and trying to much in in my bracket right now to see other teams I don't. Yeah I'd say Wisconsin. I'll go duke I don't like. And days in a controversial. I'm not a big UBA guy. Bennett is an incredible coach and still wanna watch a 4240 final four game. No they put me to sleep well watched them play but they do I would get one Saturday I was trying to watch one of their conference games and I I think highly Jett fell asleep and I missed the last the whole second half it was a so boring to me at the at bat and it's a great coach in a Washington State would love to have a ballot they would take him and RBU I can't watch like 38 to 37 as a final score. As a reasonable and never root for UNC because of Roy Benedict Arnold Hilton is my favorite team is can't design king JR says guy and jagged thirties whoever is playing North Carolina that worked out for you know why have beef with Roy you know when it title goes so that's great point man and do it. Again this is simply a bleak duke tax on the line from Jack. He and his feelings towards duke felt I hate duke so much and I also injured in big that organ game and I can allied it would organ just bull raced him in the sweet sixteen last year. God that felt good. To beat a program like that that you don't like. And in turn it situation. And the controversy at the end but coach K I'll block hurt you out guy that was a big game. That that would that that was a hole he had Dylan Brooks yeah conundrum of what he said vs what he didn't say yes. It cuts case can I think he's reaching a crotchety leveling his career. We're national media certainly reminds me. Tips and he. They're brought you did just won the air nobody all it did mean starting Motorola announcing that he did so I just a celebration so it's a wrap glad that every other coach gets crucified for because he's coached they will. But what I was gonna say was. Yeah. Welcome back into the program allows leg are deserted plaza was in here asking other question deals like nationally. The media the national media start to call him out that's what I mean. You got that he hasn't been proxy I hate cute so I'm in like this agree what you're saying at all. But ideally the national mis kind of finally. Show us ski sometimes kind of firm I. These are. There is hilarious Tex Al one last one you're Centex and before we go I'm only rooting for Gonzaga this year because swagger is hot for them so hard to feel bad for it they got knocked out collection you would never hear the end of that you better believe that men pales in the second router as we sixty. And B if there are Jones are the few people I wonder about it Inzaghi has knocked early and that's why guard. And your buddy cash out my buddy Castro who believes she didn't look like he wanted to fight media and everybody else and a poker table we talked about can tag one out was somewhat overrated there's nothing more enjoyable and poking and prodding and Gonzaga bear nothing mourned what they don't have anything else they don't that's all they got the problem and they don't play anybody all yours they can't like back it up they back it up and wins in November yeah we Arizona like five months ago dude well what I've noticed from people from Spokane is if you if you're gonna bag Inzaghi is college team they'll then resort to Gonzaga prep. They're powerful high school team it's okay now that it's not yeah awards short and Aaron high school kids still act. Nobody wants the begins. More than than everybody else in the West Coast calorie no no doubt about six. How you got swagger screeching. He got screeching mad that her coach K is that if that's a thing to get screeching metal so do pinch and then. So we love your jealous tears and delicious that's exactly what it is and I I can't even lie about I was watching the game Friday. And I was getting utterly pissed off watching coach K coach circles around Roy Williams what we sell we say. They hate us because they and that's true ain't that the truth take pride Sam's run T my crunch fitness always I 95 a month so why would you ever pay more. For gym membership to find out more about our spring and hammer out a crunch dot com and their new location opening soon. In a low okay we didn't get to the dead of an MBA weekend so I'd I'd kind of wanna start the final hour without. 'cause I don't know how the league continues to get away with this that really ticked me off this beacons would talk about that to us are the final hour also get back into the organ ducks. Today get screwed in their seeding is a number three seed and does the Boucher injuries through their chances at winning. Again as a blazer talkers lobby if you're back for team a good job by the refs after blowing a 21 point lead the final I would open in order to spread on any defense.
