in her life welcomed us with 19 a reasonable doubt.
I'm Chris Beijing A Trevor to get once a gun, Uh, afraid it comes at a chap you wanna answer Any questions will answer live on this show or appeal, period.
Tweet at us with throughout the show.
I'm gonna see underscore more six. Trevor.
That overlaying too.
We got some pretty good topics today.
When you get into it, if you want to start off with Trevor, Um, well, I'll just get ahead of it.
Wisconsin lost number 16.
Wisconsin lost number 12.
Indiana 14 to 6.
Um, in a pretty ugly game.
Um, this is just the really weird season for Wisconsin.
Something's going on with that offense.
Um, it seems to be a mix of bad quarterback play from Mertz, Um, and also bad play calling, as seen in the fourth quarter.
Um, with them passing when they really didn't need to.
That put him behind the sticks and get them the laws.
But her played Indiana.
I mean, they one, um I'm now questioning if this badger team should really even be in the top 25 is where does that sounds, Um, and it was an ugly one, but a win is a win.
Um, but you gotta wonder if the crowd was in their 50,000 plus were rock and how that came with it turned out, Yeah.
I mean, like, two things to say about that.
I'm, like, grand merger.
He's giving him already, like Dang like a month ago here saying like, Oh, he could make a Heisman run or you look so good.
Songs like she really quick.
No, no, no, it wasn't that.
It's just like, you know, he's a redshirt freshman and, you know, he had a red shirt year.
Um, but I wonder it seems like Wisconsin was under prepared with getting him into the system.
Um, because outside of Illinois game, when they were really doing basic stuff, it just seems like he doesn't really have a firm grasp of the playbook.
It looks like the playbook is dumbed down from the last couple of years, and I think that's part of it.
And I think you know when Mertz can't do him and when the coaching step doesn't have the confidence to let him do him, and with all the cove in the Games canceled the project.
This is that they missed.
I think all that together is the reason why he's he's doing so bad, but at the same time, he still needs to be better.
I don't make excuses for anybody.
Um, he needs to be better.
I mean, yeah, so, like, you're 1000% correct because I don't remember or not.
He was supposed to the back of this year.
He was supposed to play at all.
This year, Starter got hurt for export to see that he broke his foot off for the year.
So, like, he was supposed to be the backup.
So he wasn't supposed to be playing so like, all some of their training and working out like he was like, the back of quarterbacks.
So he really got Scott thrown out there here.
Really good first game in Illinois.
But, I mean, I think you hit on the head.
You probably don't pay because we'll see you shouldn't stuff because you wouldn't want to play it all this year, so yeah.
Yeah, and you know, it was It's one of those things where hey was supposed to play it all.
So obviously, you have to even, you know, a little bit of credit for that.
He's a five star recruit.
Um, Paul Chris, A good offensive mind, and they just can't seem to do anything right.
Um, I love them, but you got to do better than this.
You gotta do better than this for sure.
There's no question this is This is the saddest Wisconsin offensive seen in a while, which is saying something because we have had some bad coaches in the past.
I mean, yeah, because they don't like the running game that Wisconsin, like known for.
That hasn't been like as a parent this year.
We'll we'll go to my second question.
I was gonna ask is, Are you finally ready? Give like Indian a little bit of credit here.
I mean, they held like Wisconsin down to the offense like you've been kind about all year long.
There's six and one now.
I mean, like, there was something some pretty big victories and stuff.
I probably able to give him some credit here, but a little bit.
You know, I I would have said going into this game all they have to do is really beat Wisconsin.
Um, here's the problem.
They put up 14 points.
Wisconsin only put up six. They got the win.
Jalen Burger, the Wisconsin, you know, starting running back, running back.
He's a freshman. Do is good.
He's the real deal.
He had 15 carries, the average 5.
8 yards per carry, and for some reason, he only had 15 carries.
Grocery for Mertz got eight stock.
I don't care if he's a freshman or not.
If he's giving you results, he should be running the ball more like 5, 20 years for carries.
Yeah, you think it will be like way higher number? That's what I was saying.
8 years for Carrie, that's like Wisconsin running game numbers on average.
So why don't you embracing this guy, you know, and you don't need perfect quarterback play, but it just makes no sense.
Um, when you have a guy everything 5.
8 yards per carry, you should have more than six points A. B.
Um, I mean you should be giving them more than 15 carries this offense.
Like I said, I don't know what they're doing.
Uh, Indiana did.
Well, um, and their quarterback Penick's out, to be honest, so I think that helped, um, s Oh, yeah, yeah.
I mean, he is also the reason why they didn't scores much.
Ironically, though, I think that helped them.
Because Tuttle is very good to people.
Forget this guy's like he was actually a good recruit.
Like he wasn't just some bomb.
Uh, and I just Look, you know, I'm just not who impressed.
We'll see what they do against Purdue because, you know, they put up 14 on Wisconsin in Wisconsin.
Can't move the ball.
You should probably be putting up a little more.
We should probably hit about 20.
Uh, Maryland. They put up 27.
Maryland has a terrible defense.
Um, you know, they just haven't really blown anybody out of the water.
And I just look back to that very close Penn State lucky game.
And where Penn State is now, you know, I'm not completely suppressed, but if they be produced by about 2030 points, you know, then maybe we can start talking, but I'll be really interested to see who they play.
Um, since, um, the big 10 will have an extra week where the top team from each conference plays East Division played each other.
Number two teams from the division play each other stuff like that.
We'll see what happens there.
Yeah, for sure. Really interesting.
But you have Big 10.
Football has been kind of yourself washed.
His serious has been really fun to watch.
I mean, like, you know how a state like I mean, like, Marshall one today.
But it was a Michigan state that they're not very good. Yeah.
So So we'll see here.
But a team I'm really watching for a costume ball right now, actually, is Florida.
Um, they have a really good quarterback.
Wide receiver combo, Like I say, the best in the country there.
Number six right now.
It blew out Tennessee today.
Um, there's six in the country right now.
Is there a way you think that they could possibly squeak in the playoffs? Absolutely.
And and they were one of the four teams I brought up at the start of the season.
I have to keep bringing that up because I also picked Oklahoma.
So I got to say face somehow after that terrible pick.
But you know that a really close loss on the road to a full stadium at Texas A and M they beat number five Georgia, You know, by 16 they're beating teams by, you know, a decent amount.
Um, you know, they have l s u left, which that should be a cakewalk.
Um, they'll have one loss and, you know, if they'll be in the SEC championship game, I think they need to beat Alabama.
Um, I don't think they get in not being a conference championship.
Not being a conference champion.
Have two losses, but they beat Alabama and beat L S U.
I think they're easily and I don't think that's a question.
Well, l s is terrible issue.
That should be L S U Alabama.
That's like the number one they like.
If they could be Alabama.
Then I said they were real contender, But, like, have you watched or played all this year? Because, like, I've watched like two of the game's, they're really fun to watch, just like watching this, that that combo, just like of trash to like it's like all the time, and it just is a really fun coming to watch when when they play off.
Yeah, I haven't watched a lot, but I did watch Trask a little bit last year.
Um, a little bit of Florida team last year.
Um, they have a good offense.
I mean, they're putting up points for sure.
Um, I just see now that they already clinched a spot in SEC title game.
So if they do lose toe else, you that would be an interesting scenario, Does it? To loss champion Florida Gator? Get in or not, that will be very interesting.
So, um, interesting to see what the committee says of that.
I mean, like all these stunned Tbilisi beast, because their defense is atrocious.
That gets so bad.
So like, if somehow like the office can't do anything else that defense, I'll be stunned.
Don't deserve a playoff without the realists.
Yeah, that guys don't think it's timeto watch out for.
So like, I'm wondering, like so if they'd be Alabama, like do you have too much? You see teams you think or like how that will be two sec to a cease even kind of Ohio State's out.
Or how do you like how they even like work? You think I don't even know? Um, if they be Alabama and Alabama beats L S U in Arkansas, which is their last two games, I think you have to put Alabama in, um Davy, Texas A and M a team that they beat them by 28 to a team that Florida lost to, um, they stomped on Georgia.
They stomped on auburn, their stomping on teams.
This team is going to get in as long as something crazy and happen against Ellison.
Florida beats them.
They will. 100% get in.
Um, it's gonna be really interesting to, I think, um, Clemson, Notre Dame.
I think whoever wins that game is in.
Um, but you both get one of the other.
You think you will be like both? It's possible.
I think it depends.
Um, if Notre Dame looks bad, I want to be surprised if they get knocked out because they did. When? Today.
Don't get me wrong.
They did one, but they were down to a bad Syracuse team, and they have not killed anybody Now.
They're only now they're Onley.
Big game left is Clemson, you know, and Ohio State has not been great.
I will be the first one to say that.
But I can't put at least for me.
I can't put a one loss non champion Notre Dame in there Who is not impressed me over an undefeated Ohio State.
Um, but if Clemson loses thin, that solves it all because Clemson isn't getting in and Notre Dame will.
Yeah, but I think there is something wrong.
Comes to W motivated to be Notre Dame.
I think whichever Lawrence like expecting is probably going to be there.
I mean, he's had a covert.
So, like, you can't hear the immunity last three months, so, like, you can't get it again.
So I'm not worried about that, but yeah, I'll be interesting.
Yeah, I think Florida definitely works in Florida because I like watching them a lot.
And Obama, organ good.
Start getting Aziz.
I don't think they should be in there.
I think it's definitely something to point out that Cincinnati still is a chance.
I'm looking right now. They're seventh.
Is Florida, Texas, a and M Texas A and I won't be in the SEC championship game.
Um, if Florida loses to Alabama, they are out.
If Ohio State drops a game, they are out, um, texting themselves to play Ole Miss Tennessee.
That's not guaranteed.
Um, you know, Cincinnati, somehow they still have a chance.
So good for them.
Shout out on Wolverine girl.
Ashley, the tip.
We appreciate the support.
Yeah, I'll be interesting.
I mean, like, since the like, I think, like, um, I mean, they have a chance.
Like, I don't know. It just just straight schedule.
Um, what other big victories? Even like I'm looking here.
So, like, it looks like S M U 16, Tulsa and Army.
So, like those of their big victories, you time.
So, like, that's like like like no, like, great time.
Probably beat him.
So I don't know Cincinnati, because it just because the strength of schedule I mean, like, it was complete with Notre Dame.
They always seem to wait, find a way to get in.
So you already team for that because, I mean, that kind of context, we always say we're not very true.
Um, the way I look at it, though, is Army was also ranked when they played them at 20 to sm You use on the road.
Tulsa's on the road and I don't know first certain for the Americans, but it looks to me like it's pretty much already clinched.
Tulsa would play in the American championship game.
Um, Tulsa six and own conference.
Next closest is U C F F five and three.
Tulsa, I think, is one game left.
So this could be a scenario where they beat a number 24 Tulsa, and then they get a chance to beat him again in the championship game.
And if you're able to do that to a fringe top 25 team, beat him twice.
You know, be the number 16 s m u team beat the number 22 r b Army and their crushing everybody.
Uh um, I think he can It's tough, but I think he can Yeah, it'll be like, I think, a lot of things that's kind of go the right way for them.
So, like, I mean, like, if they went out and, like, just kind of that's the best they can do it kind of just waiting to see what everyone else does.
Eso switching gears a little bit onto NFL.
Um, there were some, like, pretty good games on the past week.
Um, any game that lets take out to the former, do anything, I mean I mean, looking forward to this week, they're looking forward to this.
Um, it's gonna be weird.
There are a lot of matchups that could be really good or really bad.
Um, you know, just looking through now.
Rams Cardinals could be interesting if Tyler Murray's health shoulders healthy because he has looked horrible.
Something's wrong with that shoulder.
Or it has been, um, with Josh Jacobs out, Jets might be ableto sneak a victory against the Raiders.
Um, and other than that, Brown's Titans and Lions bears um, with the new head coach.
Science Bears could be interesting, especially with the Bear is not having to keen Hicks and Brown's Titans.
Derrick Henry is a monster and the Browns a rating.
Three. So something's got to get it.
Yeah, I think the Rams Carl's gonna be very interesting because I mean, like, um, Carlos really needs when they want to make the playoffs and like I think it is the playoffs, but yeah, I got do question calmer is like Like somebody must be, like, hurting or something, but yeah, we'll see. W interesting game.
But, like, um, yeah, I mean, another ghetto Watch out for his own eagles.
I mean, that could be something right there.
I mean, like, I remember the Eagles expected victory last year, Remember? And they don't take a big conflict.
A stunner like, I don't know.
I mean, like, maybe he was gonna figure out a way to kind of build something last year.
Kind of beat up on the Packers again? Mhm.
Yeah, I think I think it's definitely possible.
I've said it for a long time.
Um, once again, this Packard team is is fraudulent.
When it comes to chance to win the Super Bowl, they're the best team in the North.
A week? One a one A.
You know that that's because you're a hater, though you can't judge on one week you can't judge in one week.
You have to get a little more than that.
But I think even you would admit the best team in the North are definitely a playoff team that might win one game, but they're nothing more.
Um, I feel like this is gonna be one of those games where it's going to be, either.
And I know this is not really a prediction, but it's going to be a close game, kind of like last year where those polls show themselves in it to a terrible Philly team or it's a game.
Kind of like the Bears came where the Packers look amazing.
Everybody goes nuts and the team is really not that good because they're not really playing a good team.
So it'll be interesting to see how it works.
Maybe it's get ranking for the defense, who knows, but 8.
5 point line with no fans, I don't know. We'll see.
Yeah, I'll be interesting.
But like I mean, I really hope that he doesn't get it together.
I mean, it just seems like something to me going on the locker room.
A lot of coaching issue, just like cars always look so just like no confidence, whatever.
Like they can't get together.
That could be like a Green Bay teammate.
Pick him back up.
Maybe so, like hopefully like I think like knowing that they'd be them last year and then like knowing that, like a big kind of pick them back up, because they're sort of play upon because the NFC East is so bad.
So they could easily still getting clinching spot.
So I mean, I think I think this could be the game.
They started going the right direction.
But another matchup to wash out for his, um, Brown's times, actually.
Um, Browne's 83.
We really talk about them much this year.
I mean, they're eight and three.
I mean, they're right there, like one of the best person, the league, 83 times teams.
What do you think? What this can do, You think? Who do you think wins? Hey, I'm gonna go Titans just because I know what I can expect from them.
They're not always a great team, but they're somewhat close to consistent.
I don't trust Derrick Henry near the fantasy football playoffs.
I do trust because he is just an absolute beast at the end of the season.
Um, and Tennessee sells a lot to play for.
And, you know, Cleveland has an easier schedule.
I just don't know how you can prepare for Derrick Henry.
This do It's just a monster.
I don't know how you stop him.
I don't know how you tackle him.
You think the Bronx could actually, like, make any kind of noise? They make the playoffs and actually that makes any kind of noise coming.
We've got a couple of them much at all.
Probably since, like LBJ got hurt or something.
It's probably all we talk about here.
I think for sure, I think people, you know, if you're not really catching up on the standings, it might surprise you.
But the Browns returned the fifth spot at 83.
Um, you know that that's good enough.
That's good enough for the first wild card spot right now for the first non division winner spot, I should say the Baltimore Ravens, Air six and five there.
Nine, um, there behind Oakland, there on the outside, looking in eso This team is good.
Um, you know, they've had some very bad losses the first week to the Ravens and to the Steelers, and obviously 16 to 6 to the Raiders.
But after the Titans, they got the Ravens, Giants Jets.
Um, those could all be three wins.
This team could very easily be 11 and 5, 10 and six at the end of the season.
Like that would be huge is for the Browns fan base and franchises.
They've just been so more.
But it's so pathetic for so long.
So having them, they have a great record like that.
A man make make the playoffs would be huge for that fan base.
Kind of just picking everybody.
Everyone back up.
So I mean, like, I want to see it, but like, yeah, like, breaker may feel like I've been doubting him ever since college.
Like I said, I just don't see it with this guy I like.
I like the story that he that came back because, like, um, he was like a like a like a like a zero started crew like that.
Recruiting teams walk on or whatever kind of actually upto Heisman.
Great story, you know, like I just don't like his attitude and stuff like, I don't like to waste for returning the media that he's got so many commercials and, like I don't know what it's done to deserve all that hype and everything they just watching him play like I've never just like seeing it kind of the like a really good leader in that sense, that a quarterback needs to be really kind of question, like his ability of time like, Yeah, I mean, like he has, like O B J and R's Landry, like, has has to see a year and a half of the LBJ is out now and like, Yeah, that's like a really good like weapons toe have, like, I feel like O B J like you should be one amongst with the top receivers in the league.
Talent wise, he's hasn't been because I mean, like, he doesn't get as many targets.
He's not the user.
So I really question like bakers and decision making and like ability of this.
You see, this isn't just an average record back to me.
Yeah, the crazy thing is, you know, looking at his stats, he's not been that bad, which is weird.
He just isn't throwing a lot of touchdowns.
You know, I'm looking in winds or ties.
He's completing 65% of his passes, 15 touchdowns, four interceptions of rating, 100 four.
It just makes no sense because, you know, in losses, he's so bad.
Two touchdowns, three picks, 60 rating.
So it just seems like he can't get going.
Um, and it's weird.
I think part of it might be and it sounds weird, but I think part of it could very well be, um he just is one of those guys where you need to let him loose.
Kind of like a Dennis Rodman.
Um, he's obviously not that, you know, capability.
Um, you just need to let him be Baker, you know, let him let him let him, Who knows? Let him let him dance all the way down the field, Who knows? I mean, he could just be one of those players because And when you let him do that, you know, rookie season, he was good this season.
He's doing a little better.
Maybe maybe that's the answer.
Anyone else? I mean, like being a player like that, you're supposed to leave the team, supposed to the face of one of the face of the franchise, like quarterback.
That big time leader like that's not good.
Quality of you should be better than that.
It was like Li like the offense kind of like Martians group that he's being advertised like the face of the franchise.
That is not very good.
Like leader quality.
Lose your quality.
Like you really need that kind of stuff.
Uh, what we're speaking of, Baker, I got a question here about the brown, so I figured Well, just take that out now.
Um, are the Browns better without O B.
J? Um, Sounds weird.
Um, but, hey, this team is eight and three.
I don't remember when this when he got injured.
But, you know, there, they're on a three game win streak now.
I mean, this team isn't a bunch of bums.
Eyes this team better without him.
I mean, that was a really good question.
Actually, I'm starting in.
One of the little bits of the meetings were kind of like locker rooms, kind of chemistry, sure that they don't have, because the only day like he wanted to play with really good quarterbacks and like that are just top to bottom mentality.
And, like, what would you probably really questions like Baker's decision making whatnot.
So you probably like may put Baker down a little bit.
So probably like respect is common, especially in losses like things go back, start losing Baker just plummet.
So I think it's possible that, like maybe it's like LBJ, like pushes like Baker a little too much and makes them not play as well.
So I mean, e think that theory that it could be true.
But, like, if I'm the branches, I don't think O.
I'm gonna LBJ like I like his time with brother and Bakers because I wouldn't like I want to ship weight will be J because of Baker, like big, more replaced opinion.
Yeah, I'm actually gonna take the flip side.
I think they are better without him.
I don't think it's LBJ's fold.
I just think, you know, you get a quarterback like Baker who doesn't really have a lot of swagger.
His stats don't come out at your eye popping.
I feel like when O BJ's in the game, he feels the need to force it to him, and I think that's where a lot of the problems come from.
Um, you know, the obviously the schedules different, so it's kind of tough because since O B J has been out, they've had a week schedule.
I just feel it's something like that.
And personally, um, I would actually pick Baker Mayfield over Auto Beckham Jr.
I can't believe I'm saying E can't believe I'm saying it because I don't like her that much, actually, but I just took a O b J.
As much as I don't hate him for being different and being out spoken, he is a distraction.
At the end of the day, Um, he is very injury prone and he's not as young as he is anymore, and he's had some bad injuries.
I think you put that all together and you've taken account that Mayfield came into a garbage team.
I mean, Oh, and 16 garbage And now he's got a coach.
He's starting to do better and they're eating three.
Maybe there's a chance for him. I don't know.
I mean, yeah, that the injury and I mean that is a good point.
I mean, like, he's coming off a 20 c.
I mean, he is 27 so that's not really old.
So he's still the potential, is still being this prime and still be a really good player.
But yeah, like I just feel like like talent wise, like I think bigger is not making Look is good.
But like LBJ is quiet like easily tops and receiver like talent wise and whatnot.
Maybe even knock on the door of top five years.
And, like, obviously, like looking away, play the in Cleveland that you can put in that category at all because I mean, e.
I don't know the Bakers chemistry or whatnot, but I mean, yeah, like, it's hard to kind of past the town like that.
So that's why I had to go.
That will be jail where a bigger and bigger and you could buy a lot of the quarterbacks that can do what he does and then you'll be just fine.
Hey, I'm just saying, when Jarvis Landry and and or Odell Beckham throw passes there, three for three with one touchdown.
So maybe those guys should be their quarterbacks.
Who knows? I mean, also BJ and jobbers like they're like best friends.
They went to college together and everything, so they're steeper, close.
So, like, do you really wanna break that apart like I don't know, I guess like a really good best receiver, uh, potentially probably the whole league.
I mean, best friends for, like years.
I mean, tough to argue with that with the chemistry aspect.
Um, and let's say together or that was, like, a really fun to watch. I remember.
But so that's a really good fact.
You gotta keep in mind too.
Eso 13 years from football.
Um, I'm gonna go MBA and next s o s o N b released a bubble, The butter protocol.
I think we're top of the black experience.
So to go, we talk with kind of the protocol.
Eso kind of the details kind of trying to emerge out of the media.
That kind of important.
That's from the details.
One of the details is on.
Um they're saying, um, n b if you only gonna go to certain approved restaurants and no going to clubs or anything, so no, like Magic City that Google and go to get some wings or anything.
Eso Yeah, it's pretty thorough.
Me like like, you know, family is tested twice a week.
So, like, do you think like part of it? This is all the right call.
You think you're being made, uh, different.
Adam Silver here or what do you think? I think it's perfect.
I'm looking right here.
Um, the league may also conduct unannounced in prison inspections of team facilities.
Um, you know what? That's what you need to dio.
I mean, you have to.
You have Thio have a clear set of rules nobody else did that.
We saw how it's worked.
Um, both leagues have been terrible, you know, talking about the NFL and MLB, The MBA is usually the best league.
You gotta take it.
You gotta have these rules in here.
It seems like they're going about it all the right way because N b has already lost enough money.
As you said multiple times.
And you're right, um, they can't afford to lose more.
So if team puts him at risk to do that, I hope they do bring the hammer down.
And I think they will.
Yeah, because like, according to a report, that question include, like finds, loser picks or your before picture.
So, like, it could be some pretty like like hefty consequences provide lines and protocol, but I think it was crazy how, like in depth it goes to like having like pretty Russian.
They can go through the travel on the road and everything I'm like, Wow, that's, like, really like in depth.
They reached agrees with certain restaurants, sell Cantonese restaurant and we say really go, too.
So going to the protocol Let's say you're you're in like L A.
You want to go toe what a burger or something like You can't do that because I approve restaurants.
It is very kind of like a kind of a chance.
I mean, it's bold.
Um, but I love it, too.
Um, you know, you want to eliminate as much as you can.
I'm sure they're not just saying you can only go to three McDonald's in L.
A. Like they actually have restaurants there.
And that's good, too, because then you know if if a team gets sick and you know they haven't following protocol is cool.
Cut that restaurant out so that, you know, whoever goes to L.
A from here on out doesn't get it.
And I feel weird continuing to praise a league for doing the right thing because it doesn't seem right, because nobody else does anything, right? But I like it because we want to see these guys play.
Um, somebody is going to test that somebody's gonna throw up this year.
I'm just a matter which team for sure.
I mean, like, you have the Lou Williams incident.
Like what? That happens again.
He wants to go get some wings at Magic City.
Of those local struggles.
Like, do you think like the NFL? Like the other ways? Like I'm gonna take no something like like things nbr doing simply do not really like like getting the tick, tick, tick, some notes, for sure.
I mean, the NFL, just this past week with all going on with the Ravens, patted themselves on the back for some reason, saying they have been good at their jobs, which, if you just open your eyes, do you see they have not been so it Z.
The MLB, the Marlins didn't even play a game for what, like almost a month? Same with, like the Cardinals.
I mean, it was ridiculous to a point.
It's just it just seems like a lot of these leagues air going.
We'll deal with it when it happens, the MBA is going at it from the jump.
It's got to be more effective for sure.
I mean, to the animals defense, though it's so many players like it is a hard it kind of like reinforcement kind of manage all those players.
So I know Roger Goodell is about the best at the same time, and it's really it's really, really hard to manage.
Like like all the same players, because these teams like 50 to 60 players like That's like a lot of all the coaches have all the trainers and whatnot.
Coaches like us.
Tough? Yeah, and we'll see.
Hey, I think these guys will be fine with all that because the n b A won't test for weed anymore.
Shadow Chair Smith and Dion Waiters Um, yeah, that was my next topic, actually, like, give me, like, that's the right call.
Actually be any kind of kind of stands and you need a permanent like Do you think it's a bit like legalizing like being not testing? Yeah, Yeah, I mean, it should, and it shouldn't be tested for anyways.
Um, mhm, because I just gotta look it up because I know even more states have legalized weed.
Um, even now is legalized in gosh looks like 2468 10, 12, 14, 15 states, 6 16.
If you count d. C.
Um, you know, it's gonna beam, or the federal ban on it is probably gonna be lifted.
You know, you pull the public, the public doesn't mind about it, the health risks are minimal.
You know it It was just always kind of stupid to me.
And so I think it's good, because, you know, if you could do it legally in California, why is it illegal in, you know, the sport you're playing? That's just how I look at it, I guess.
Yeah, like I have to go in that sense too, because, like, yeah, so we kind of like moving towards the legalize, even more conservative states, like they like towards legalizing to so the same time, like police kind of getting to adjust and adapt to the current times that, like, just accept that.
Okay, like a lot of these things that legalizing it and like, the house has passed a bill.
So they make it decriminalized, so I can't even make change in the federal levels at the same time, like you do a kind of the direction.
I think we're especially probably following that sense for sure.
And I mean, you know, those were just the states that have completely legalized it.
They're definitely more than 16 that have also, you know, maybe only have medical purposes, you know? So, yeah, those up that's going to get you to probably 30 plus.
So I take everything into account, and it is not hurting anybody.
I don't see how it would, but yeah, I totally agree.
Eso next MBA topic was so about the different nugget, actually, Um, my partner, Michael Porter Jr.
Was saying that he thinks he's ready to get third starting the Nuggets and being officially a three.
What do your expectations on my quarter junior That he can do that? What do you expect from the notice this year? They can kind of make the next step there.
What's correspondent last year.
Potential the nuggets in my party, junior.
Yeah, I think that's that's really stupid of him to say.
Um, everything I've seen from him from talking has been horrible.
Um, since the playoffs, Um, he's I mean, Yeah, I remember the plants in the interview.
He was saying, like, one more shot.
He's got many more shots in the team.
And he was like staying in the media.
I think. His job.
You're not LeBron.
You're not a prime, Paul.
George, you're not saying that your rookie okay? Like no offense, but, like, no, your role within the team know your place and just some of the other stuff he says just is a little questionable.
Why he'd bring it up.
I mean, people forget Gary Harris is on this team when he's healthy.
He is us solid, solid player.
E would say he is the Third star.
Um, so for him to say that it's like, Have you not seen Gary Harris in the past? Like, that's kind of ballsy of you to assume that you're the third guy on the team like that.
Just seems like it would stir the water a little bit.
I don't think he's good enough.
I don't think you can stay healthy long enough.
I think Gary Harris is better than him right now.
Anyways, although portal will probably be better in the long run.
Yeah, well, what do you have the Nuggets this year? Like how party didn't they could make it? Uh, yeah, it's so tough because we just have to see how the season goes.
It's not gonna be as training.
This is the bubble.
So it's not gonna be, like, completely a mental game.
There were third last year.
They didn't really lose anybody.
I'd say second or third this year to I think the only team that's probably going to jump them would be maybe Dallas.
Um, this team is really good.
They're solid, their deep.
They have a good starting lineup.
If yoga can keep his fat ass and shape, but shouldn't be that hard of a thing for him, uh, they'll be fine.
And you know, the Clippers.
Yeah, I mean of of course, they lost.
I think there are better in the Clippers, even with Harold.
Without Harold and without Sham it Yes, a true But to be honest with you, I don't even know if the Clippers have a home.
Siri's have home court advantage for even one serious this year.
They might be fifth because you take into account the Mavericks you're taking account.
Portland's getting better Utah can't sleep on them.
Sons are better.
It's no walk in the park for the Clippers.
Yeah, I'll be interesting.
But speaking of the Clippers, e know what kind of preview with this last night? I'm a pretty hot take right now.
Now, um, So I idea of a pretty hot take. I do.
So I'm taking my love.
So we talked with preseason MBA M B M V P picks.
We both paid Luca Dante's.
I'm gonna change my pick, actually.
Right now, I'm gonna change the Anthony Davis because I think have a big, really big year.
I mean, like LeBron arresting a lot because short off season.
So he's arresting a lot more a lot of back to back.
So 80,000 carry loads more and like he's in the show up like I think he wants to be doing see the next step to be one of the best Laker bigs of all time.
You'd love to shock you loved the cream and will always mike and always great Laker bigs.
So you have to be a big time role.
We gotta step up.
So I didn t m v p This year I'm thinking him not good knowledge anymore, but like, But that being said, I got to say, like, I don't think like after this year is over, I don't think that would be a top player in the league anymore.
Like, I think like the media won't recognize them.
And I think the clear that, like, he only be top five.
But I don't think because I got LeBron number one I mean, he's always my guy.
He's the best in the world that I say That was just the a D M v p from a D M. V.
Please be brutally honest.
You might be better.
And then you got K D.
I mean, like, he's come out with, Ah, pretty bad injury.
But Katie is Katie, so it becomes back 80%.
That's probably top out in the league 80. Just that good.
And then you got look at Dodgers.
I mean, we picked him to be previously the M V p last episode.
So me, all my people double last year season be right up there in the top five.
So, like I think easily right great eighties dogs right there that connect M V p on.
Then like even then you have Steph Curry.
I mean, like, he's unanimous. M v P.
I mean best shooter all the time.
I mean, he's fully healthy.
He could play two games, reported stealing shutdowns and he's ready to go.
I mean, he dropped 23 point the last time he plays, he's healthy.
He didn't working on all this time and the team workouts.
He's been pretty good.
So back to the Steph Curry that he was the top five play before you got hurt.
E I mentioned that, Have no k d So you put a really big numbers.
But then, you know, Katie is not the level of respecting to be like because of the Achilles and whatnot you started. Call that letter.
I mean, like, he's gonna be coming in.
Lot of he's gonna be placed on him.
And he didn't come back and be a monster because he lost.
Look, everyone leave people who've done it quiet.
He's a bad leader or quite ready, just to much.
He doesn't want a bad leader.
Probably feeling, if you don't think is watching the ESPN be motivated by all this stuff.
I mean, like like he's probably watching like SportsCenter, little clouding it all the time.
So he's ready to be a monster this year.
I mean, he's a two time Finals M v P. 2000 champion.
You can't count him out, play the high level before.
I mean, he gave you honest that work in each of commerce bottles in 2019.
I mean, so at the same time, then that's six players right there.
Some of the Yazidi outside that name you just talking about Yonas at the same time at the end of this year.
I think it's possible that Ghana's could be also looking in of the of the top five in the NBA.
Are Is that Is that the completed take? Yeah, e other players like like I told you like yesterday that, like, you could be clawing top 10 because, like, I mean, James Hardie couldn't your run for his money. I don't like hard.
And so, like I said, no.
Yeah, I was better than him.
That's what I say.
But, I mean, I'm like, Yeah, I'm looking 567 range.
Okay, we're going to shut this down right now for all of you that are ready to click off.
I promise you, he's not doing this to try to get ratings like Skip Bayliss.
This is actually e stay.
We'll bring it back.
Peter, my buddy.
I know you're watching this.
I know you're infuriated.
Okay, so let's start.
Uh, let let's start with CO y okay.
You know he's going to do this.
He's going to do that.
He averaged two minutes more per game than Yonas, who less points 8% worse from the field.
Shot better from three.
I'll give you that. Six less rebounds.
8 more steals and 0.
4 less blocks in two extra minutes.
He also load managed.
He only played 57 games.
He played 60 and 2018.
This dude has never played more than 74 games in his career.
No co I he's out.
Let's let's take him out of the question.
Luca, don change.
Um, the problem is, he played over three minutes more than you. Honest.
More than one point per game.
9% less is three point percentage, 1% better than Yanis.
Yanis is horrible.
Don't just shot 1% better.
He shot 31% from deep.
No rebounds for Game four.
Less sister game.
He had three more.
Steals same blocks.
Remember, he did all of this playing three more minutes, and he only played in 61 games.
Not just played 63 but that was because injury, um, he's getting better, but he can't even touchy Honest when he plays three more minutes, a game gone.
Let's move on to a D cause he's your other guy.
He played four more minutes per game.
Yeah, LeBron played more points per game.
5 points per game, less shooting percentage.
Three point percentage.
Less than 3% better rebounds.
Four less assists to less steals.
He did have a half more blocks.
He had 1.3 more.
He did all this in four more minutes.
Yanis put up single handedly the greatest player efficiency rating off all time, all time.
Better than wilt.
Better than Mike.
Better than LeBron and you're going to talk about LeBron Number one.
I have to bring it up.
I already told you this.
LeBron's player efficiency rating of all time the last two seasons.
192nd and 199 when you compare that to all time stats.
Not bad, Yannis says.
The past two season, 13th and first, it's not even close.
Efficiency wise, Yannis is better.
He needs 30 minutes a game to put up stats that some of these guys wish they could put up. Defensively.
I I'm not gonna bring it up on stream because I don't have all the stats to prove you that Yannis is also a better defender than a D, and he did in fact, deserve defensive player of the year.
He has won the M V P two times in a row.
He's the reigning defensive player of the year.
He has been most improved player, and he's just getting better.
His three point percentage increased by 5%.
Lecture. This dude's getting better.
He's got better teammates around him now to say he's not the top five.
Simply blasphemous at this point.
Uh, because the stats say it is blasphemous.
Que de when he's hot is better.
If you want to say he's better the same, that's fine.
Curry is getting older and he's injury prone, and his player efficiency rating has never been close to Unisys.
Even then, that's maybe three better than him.
Yanis is top 5 100% if not number one, but to say he's outside the top five.
I can't let that slide.
Chris can't let that slide.
I mean, so like, you sent me a quote a couple days ago.
You're saying that like when he also saying like, Oh, he wants us, um, like players kind of Milwaukee to play with him and whatnot.
I think both in the wrong part of the quote, actually, because he said he didn't treat the best player on the team.
I'm like, usually the best player in the world.
We say I'm the best player in the world like no one's like better than me.
So many questions mentality at this point.
Like what? Just focus what's just drive? I mean, like a d, like he could have a monster you this year because like he wanted to be like No one is like the shacks, the careens, the will to, like, follow the big time.
So he finally really motivated to, like, really come back strong.
But he's LeBron needs it because he'd been here 18.
I'm resting a lot.
Meanwhile, you brought up really see the staff.
But his last playoff run, they go to the Raptors.
I mean, he averaged, like, 31 points and, like almost 10 rebounds, like he could put up some big numbers that you put on some like 50% from the field.
I mean, almost 38 from three.
So he could put up some pretty good numbers in the playoffs and he can really show up.
I mean, like, he led the whole playoffs.
The minutes that that playoff runs at the same time, like I think what he wants to, he can show the stretch of the way.
He could be a played a very, very high level, something like Now, people will.
They kind of putting the fire to Kawai.
Is there like a like he's taking too many games off.
He's a bad leader.
The team claims he's a little bit motivated.
He's probably saying all this stuff.
So I think he could, like, play at that plant.
Clever because sustained over a season like to see that, Then look, a doctor's just look at the difference in the first year and second year, you just exploded.
So at the same time, like I mean, a lot of media is saying he could be the M V p this year, regardless.
And before that, so you could probably explode again.
Toa a lovely never even thought of.
So So they're all there.
Yeah, I think for all those players.
And here's the thing you know, you brought up.
I don't care if I'm the best player, the team.
You're the best player in the world.
See, the thing that I find so funny is when Michael Jordan and when Kobe Bryant have the mentality of I don't give a ****, I wanna win.
They're absolutely loved.
But when Yonas has a quote about bringing a championship in, I don't care if I'm the best player. I just wanna win.
When Yana says stuff like, I just wanna win, I want to help my teammates win.
I wanna help the city I'm saying at the end of the day, Kobe and Michael, they cared about nothing more than winning a championship.
Yanis Yanis is literally here saying I don't give a **** about anything but the title and suddenly because his name is not Kobe Bryant and he's not a big market and his name is a Michael Jordan.
Suddenly, that's a bad thing for him and it should not be.
Oh, and you bring up CO.
I He's going to turn around what's going to make him turn it around that the media is talking bad on him.
I mean, this dude was universally hated for the way he was on the Spurs.
He went to Toronto, got what he wanted, got out of trade and did even worse.
He played 60 games, had no injuries, He won a title.
He went to the Clippers.
He was pampered every day.
He lived in San Diego.
He called the shots.
He had his own security.
He called everything and he did.
And this guy who comes in here makes demand, says you're going to sign Paul.
George, you're going to need this.
This this, this this that guy is going to snap back into place for a title when he's already won two.
He's not that type of guy.
He's a prima donna.
He's not going to snap back.
And even if he does, unless he his player efficiency rating is top five in NBA history, it's not gonna matter, because the honest is probably going to do the same thing, if not Mawr this season.
I mean, Pop did say that, Yeah, I mean, that Young is co Isaac, a really efficient player whatnot.
He went defensive player.
You're twice to something like he he can play the highlight.
You put it all together, you can and you bring up like Kobe and Mike.
I mean, like Kobe like Like he still think is the best in the world and make a journey.
Both of they're still the best in the world known better than them.
They talked a lot of trash from the court.
They're very arrogant in the media, and then Kobe, I mean, like, he did kind of being the best player.
Why didn't didn't play.
If you want a shotgun him, why did they beat at all the time I mean, he obviously did care without a lot in Jordan obviously knows that closer level, but the same time, like looking at a team, you're saying then Olympics in 19 to like he like Isaiah Thomas Because because Tom was trying to say like, Oh, he was better than Michael, whatever at the time.
So like, that was like a lot of, like, friction and pieces. They care about that.
You never hear Coke, Kobe, LeBron, Jordan, Katie and the top players like you could everything they'll ever say, like, Oh, like I'm a better player, Lou, I mean, because they're already the best.
In their opinion, in their mind, I think it's because he doesn't care.
He doesn't give a **** if he's the best.
He wants toe win that he doesn't care.
He knows he's the best.
He doesn't need Thio.
Tell people he's the best already knows and you bring up.
Why did shock leave shock left hashtag wanna put any **** working in offseason? He want to practice hard.
That's what ****ed off Kobe.
I mean, we've seen plenty of film of him ragging on guys and you know, you you bring up CO.
I He's played two more seasons and in total stats, he has less points, rebounds, assists, blocks and he's played about the same amount of games.
His best season was 27.
1 points per game, best season rebounding wise of seven best season assists, Wise is 4.9.
That is slam slam numbers.
His best season is good.
If you're looking at everybody, it's good.
But when you're comparing them to the guy who had the best player efficiency rating of all time better than will when he was averaging 50 and 20 a game, we got to a hell of a lot better in 27 points and seven rebounds a game, Especially when you're putting in more minutes and a guy when he's averaging 30 13 and six, That's that's all I got to say.
You can't tell me he's passed him.
Yeah, I mean, it's a gamble for sure, but I would say that even Rama quite, I think Katie could, like, come through to.
I mean, like, he's been like talking a lot, apparently like different reports that players and it looks really good on his workouts and like a practicing stuff, I mean like if Katie comes to Katie.
Yeah, The quiet.
It doesn't matter what Quiet.
Because they still got, like, Katie A B which.
I mean, like, that's still, like, I think could have a big year then that Curry.
I mean, obviously, like we've seen currently at extremely high level, too.
So, like, you know, without so that's still now.
Still, even now, even without Pariah at the same time, though, Katie can come back and be himself.
This team is going to explode and you know I'm gonna bring up.
I'm sure you saw it.
Ah, Irvine did not speak to reporters as part of media week.
It's usually pretty cool.
Everybody does, his statement said.
Instead of speaking, I'm just going to read kind of paraphrase.
I'm issuing this statement to ensure that my messages properly conveyed.
I'm committed to show up to work every day, ready to have fun compete, performing win championships alongside my team mates and colleagues.
That sounds like a promise statement you make when you're in high school, saying I promise to not do drugs until I'm 21 or whatever.
Like what kind of bull**** is that? And you couple that with somebody saying, Oh, you know, um, so if anybody could be a coach and then you couple it with Nash saying, Well, D Antoni will lead the office, this guy will lead the defense.
This team is in shambles.
This season hasn't started.
They don't know what they're doing.
You put in Kyrie, who's a cancer? Katie.
Katie, You is a baby back *****.
Even if Katie is playing well, they're gonna be fighting.
His game is going to take a hit because of it.
Um, as a player.
Hey, so is K D and everybody on the Warriors.
That's why I joined them.
And look how that turned out.
By November, it was already ****.
Um, I just don't see it.
I I don't I think talent wise, I will agree with you.
He's better than the honest because he brings that three point shot that Yannis doesn't have.
I I don't think you can bring it And coming back from Achilles, man, that's tough.
That's tough, E, I don't have to tell you.
I think you can get probably in the basketball for sure.
So you'll be interesting to see.
I mean, like, if I end up being right.
I mean, like, I would be very interesting and we'll be talking about of smack.
I think I'm like, Dang, look, all these, like players, like all these numbers.
I mean, like like other, like, wild card players That could have a factor.
That I got friends about this too.
They were saying, like maybe James Harden, I'm not a fan of hardened, so like I'll never put him in that category.
I'm like, No, Harden is like, Goes like, like, away.
Like he does not count because I don't like the way he plays.
Yeah, my friends at the moment, you know, trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble.
All he does is so boring and watch like I hate her.
My friends said, like maybe tomorrow, Murray, because, you know, Mexicans explored this year because they kind of show flashing the playoff.
This and maybe them.
But, like for me, I said, not have to pass you on that.
That's what I said.
Not have to pass them.
But you never know.
Maybe if he could quit the project or something like that.
Hey, another one of those parties, maybe Zion Williamson.
Maybe he gets like, some minutes and some games.
Yeah, yeah. I mean, we'll see.
I think if you're talking about exploding, I will agree with Murray and with Mitchell.
And was I in? If you're talking about replacing the honest top five e.
Yeah, I think I think that's kind of dicey.
Hey, and I do want to shout out, um, Oregon, already losing the Cal 7 to 3 with Cal on their 10 again.
So I hate to break the Oh, good.
I mean, it will be interesting season.
Um, you know, again, I will say it is always trade.
Um, I know you're probably not watching, but if you are watching, uh, I love you.
Chris has played with you.
Uh, and he loved you as a teammate, so you know.
Well, how's it going? Come on, come on.
You know you got time. I'm sure.
There's always trade.
You're always welcome on the show.
Like whenever you want.
Like, we'll make it as well.
Just like are playing topics and just go from there.
We'll just let him talk.
We'll just let him tell us.
Popovich stories if you want.
Yeah, You'll do whatever you want.
Yeah, but just one last time before we go, though.
Like, kinda drop things up his own time of college basket.
A little bit like I know.
Even watched too much, too early on this season.
But, like, there was a big upset yesterday.
Market like beat Wisconsin.
It's constantly for the nation market and beating them.
I mean, your market guy, like we're pretty hyped by this doesn't mean Wisconsin.
Kind of like fraudulent that I've been saying.
What do you say? Well, I'm also Wisconsin guy grew up Wisconsin guy.
Um, grand parents were good friends with the coach.
Um, still are, um, Greg guard took over.
I don't think he's that good.
I still like him. Obviously.
Grew up, like in a team.
You don't just lose them unless, like you, you're just on a team because of LeBron James.
But point aside, uh, yeah, this team was that good.
Um, they beat eastern Illinois by 10, which I know the game was well over and it was garbage time, but still, And you look about the teams they played Arkansas Pine Bluff, Green Bay.
But they had a great end of the season last year.
Um, seems just not that good.
They just got hot.
And you look for what they did against Marquette.
Marquette People need to give a little credit.
They're a team that is good enough to beat anybody any time, anywhere.
They're not good enough to, really.
They might not make the tournament.
And if they do, I don't think they'll make noise in the tournament.
But their team, That could be anybody at any time.
And, you know, you look at the badgers shot 38% from the field, 29% from deep, um, shadow.
Okay, from the free throw line.
But, you know, 10 turnovers, 10 turnovers going to kill you.
Um, they didn't shoot well.
Meanwhile, you know, Marquette, 43% from the field, 36% from deep, um, Onley 71% of the free throw line.
But you know, when you shoot 30 under 30% from three and under 40% from the field, you can't expect to win.
Um, but if you do take one good thing from it, I would say is the rivalry game they shot horribly and I mean horribly It's probably hopefully the worst.
They shoot the entire year and they were still in the game.
You know, if they lost on a last second tip in and they made some bad decisions late, that cost them and then a rivalry game playing the worst, they will all season.
They lost by two.
You know, it could be worse, but this team should never have been number five for sure. Never.
Actually number four, actually.
But yeah, I e they're being ranked that hikes.
I mean, like like, look at this team.
Like I I know I would like a lot of these players don't know like Brad Davis.
He was my teammate, Trevor Aaronson.
He was a U teammate.
Too late later on.
And that river is like, I didn't want to get into him.
I'm not a fan of him, but yeah, just looking, like, right now, we're gonna take a lot of these names.
Planet got some looking high school stuff, like they really lax shooting.
That's a weakness from like, Yeah, they're not very good shooting team.
So that's that's the number for the nation.
That was a big stretch.
So I think they're probably in that sense, I mean, bread Trevor be watching and like Like I know I always appreciate you guys.
You're always like gay ones, but yeah.
I mean, just the shooting, man, like I questioned.
I mean, like, I know Brad, Trevor gets tricky a little bit sometimes, but not I don't know what consistently enough, man.
I'm sorry, Y'all I'm like, Nate rooms and just screw himself not being him at all.
Yeah, but like, look at victim basketball.
That Luke Garza guy from Iowa.
She has been a monster.
You put a 40 on the first game 35 2nd game.
Just been a absolute beast.
So, like, before, you kind of see how I will friendship.
Well, unfortunately, you basically just, um, confirmed that Davison, Anderson and Rivers will never come on this podcast, if that was ever a possibility.
Um, yeah, Luka Garza.
I mean, he's really good.
He's 6 11 to 65 6 11 in college.
It's a lot different than it doesn't MBA.
Uh, but, you know, even with that, I mean, you put up 34 points, 10 rebounds, 76% shooting, and he's actually in only three games.
In fairness, he is shooting 63% from deep so far again in three games.
Um, but I mean, this kid is the real deal.
This is a senior season.
He's going to be really good.
It's probably gonna win Player of the year.
Um, it will be interesting to see how it doesn't MBA, though.
Um, you know, he's dominant.
He's got some great moves.
Like I said 6 11 to 65.
It hits a lot different in college in the MBA, The N B.
That's like normal center, I think. Typical.
Yeah, so I have all but the best for him.
But that, coupled with the fact that he seems to have a very ****y demeanor, it will be interesting to see how it doesn't MBA.
Because if your rookie coming in, you have a big head.
Yeah, they're gonna let you know real quick.
Um, so we'll see.
But yeah, he's been legit for sure.
Yeah, you definitely want to Paris Player of the Euro say for sure.
I mean, like seniors usually like giving older players to like it has been the absolute monster.
I think probably continue because yeah, I mean, 6 11 in college.
There's this huge so e don't see like how you can I don't think I get pulled down the college, but I don't see like, way to slow down.
So hey, you brought up the Big 10.
You know, obviously new rankings haven't been released, but Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa and Michigan State We're all top 10.
Iowa, Illinois, Michigan or Wisconsin were top five letters in there.
I've and you know, Illinois.
They lost to number two Baylor's.
So that's not by any means a bad loss for them.
Um, but they did, interestingly enough, on Lee scape by two points against Ohio University, which is interesting.
But I mean this Big 10, as always, it's gonna be ruthless.
It's gonna be insane.
It's gonna be crazy.
We'll see what happens.
Hopefully better than take some football hoping for Oh, it can't be worse.
I don't know how it could be.
Everybody on every **** team would have to get hurt and not play for it to be worse.
Okay? Yeah, sure.
Eso that's all Thomas for, um, this episode or anything else you want to challenges go already kind of questions or last minute break takes or anything.
I do have a pup.
Gonzaga, Um, they're obviously a unit.
They've looked good so far.
All really good.
Where is why don't the rankings pulling up their number one? Jealous.
But Jalen Starks did get hurt them.
They got their star player so like and I mean, like, if you watch injury, that looks like an Achilles.
Like, if it was 20 Achilles and that's, uh, huge loss for them, like to better the game against barely got postponed today. That's a huge shame.
I wish I could have watched that e mean understandable.
It does say postponed.
Um, it will be interesting.
I'm sure they will make it up, because with the coronavirus season, I'm sure there will be a lot of open games from other teams getting hurt.
But looking at their season, we've talked about it.
Um, they beat two very good teams in Kansas, West Virginia.
They'll probably play Baylor.
They'll play Iowa.
Um, if there without Jalen Suggs for a little bit of while.
Do you think this injury, ironically, makes them favorites? Um, learning how to play without him And then once they get him back, just even that much better.
Or do you think it doesn't really change anything? Yeah, it just depends on, like So, like, I know what injuries to bury is so far.
They announced it.
So it was part of killing all 40 years and that just don't that could be a huge loss for them.
Kind of make up, but, like, it could be like, I think I could, like, help him out.
Like I kind of learned how to play without him coming.
Like he's only a freshman.
So, like, it wasn't like they had a lot of chemistry, But, like maybe watching, I watched two of the games.
And, like home, they're just all around team that they have, like, straight shooters.
And like like a nice, big and like, I should solid team all around you really deeply good defense, too.
So the same time they'll be fine.
Probably to one of these next few games, but they wanna win it all or something, then.
Yeah, You Jalen sucks.
I mean, it will be interesting that this might be the first season I actually won't hate on them.
because they actually have decent players like decent recruits.
They always have good players.
But, you know, recruits that I e.
That I could be, Yeah, that I could be, like at the level in the tournament, you know, instead of Yeah, these guys are great, but they play San Francisco like, twice a year, So mhm.
It'll be interesting.
Fun year to come for sure.
Hopefully **** Corona.
Hopefully it doesn't screw anything over.
Yeah, I mean, like, I think How about doing the right approach? Because they're pretty much is going to like like, certain locations trying to play like three or four games, like against the same like, couple of teams, just in certain locations.
Kind of do it in.
Todd's think that that is a smart guy to do it.
So far, hopefully, they kind of keep that trend going.
It has been to make too many big outbreaks.
Yeah, I mean, the first one, because that was the first one that kind of have that outbreak.
So hopefully kind of keeps that train going.
Also, less players, unless staff like you brought up with less people.
So hopefully yeah, first, that concludes I have some 19 reasonable doubt on February 2 weeks in advance.
Question will answer around the Shirley we do today.
I'm at CNN for more safe travels a triple lane, too, and have a good night.
