We'll start legitimize else is gonna come on at 1230 believe it or not organ state spring practice starts today yeah that blew my mind when I've found that out. So gene is gonna come on their practice are she's gonna give us some story lines to watch this spring position battles. New faces in spring practice we'll talk to Gina my Zelda or billion.

Had to carry had a good seat last night's right across so the court from a my broadcast location for the the Damon Stoudamire Terry Stotts showdown. Yes and he he gives break a call yesterday after the show and he left them a voice like I wonder why Kerry was conduits on here. So sprinkles and back it puts him on speaker phone and carrion heard our conversation about debating Damon Stoudamire vs Terry Porter. And he just how little time on a sand yesterday before the UP Pacific game. And he compiled all the stats all the numbers it was likely just wrote an article about the NHL potentially come to Portland to. Come on the status of Perrier drizzle come on. At 130 and then the final hour will be pretty blazer had these we head into the all star weekend we'll see if we can keep it on the rails. A but Casey whole ball forward centered on abbey reporter for the team. He's gonna join us and to try and hold them hostage for two segments was clr he can stick around. The case Jane I I don't think he's going now there's no all stars Annette I mean CJ said he'll be there I mean if he loses in the first round he might be on a plane out before the finals of the three point shootout NASA would be like a minute worth of work for me so he's not going to new morally it's a shadow we can screw himself. Had a weekend off and he's gonna enjoy it's a Casey will come on the show coming up at 2 o'clock I did see something I forgot I wanted to bring up I yesterday that means for hairspray and I forgot to mention. Yesterday was its 41 anniversary of Happy Gilmore. Is. I just I didn't. I can't believe we missed that one I feel a little. Inadequate as a Sports Radio host for not mentioning that and I wanted to Lou of just Ager a little bit legend and his that was the 21 anniversary. As Happy Gilmore which controversial statement to some I still think is Alexander's best movie. Could be. I think that I love Billy Madison I love water boy I mean he's got a lot of good movies don't get me wrong kind of partial to big daddy a daddy's hilarious that was good. I'm a little Nicky sand little underrated I was not a little Mickey Finn you know legs. That left a how many people out there. Went out and tried to Happy Gilmore golf swing after that movie I was a bit of a cultural phenomenon for awhile it's still. Can't remember the tournament that'd there's a PGA tournament word that's like a traditional one of the holes in the practice rounds something you'll cross step and see if they can unleash yet and I forget where it is but it's. But yeah I believe one of the tournament somewhere on the PGA tour like one of the practice rounds there's there's a whole traditionally where they do the Happy Gilmore isn't. Why one years manned 21 years old Happy Gilmore is wanted to bring that up to you forget that yesterday. And then you be in the great producer that you are slight argue did your best to basically derailed a show about three minutes before we even hit the air internal microphones on. Yes I'm giving a song getting to the end of the pilot season here and and it's been a trying year with all that has gone on for Terry Porter in his first season he's been a long season and so bless him bless the assistant coaches and all the kids to you know they are complain their guts out every night just things haven't gone their way this season and into yet another tough one last night you know and and their experience in the same thing going tingles go to the same thing down in Corvallis. Some key injuries in the you know younger guys come and and and for Terry in the coaches trying to just a different way of doing things so. All of those sorts of things but yes ol' you know start to wind down and I'm Mike I'm gonna have a lot of free time coming up here real time iron off the blazers are looked like they're going the playoffs old you know we knew I was our show that was you know usually like OK got to gear up for playoff coverage ship extra stuff you're Naira but a lot of extra time after shows. So you you mentioned that you just takes some singing lessons this summer and then that led into. Whether or not you can get to the point of actually being able to put on a show which is death followed through. With the question of at this point in your life. Yes so assuming you don't know how to play either one. Would you rather learn how to play the guitar or the piano yes at a proficient level yeah where if you not not like you know touring Arenas but if you were at a bar. Say and there was either you ought to have a guitar right or there was a piano there like a piano bar you to jump on you during the trial and knocked out some Billy jewel Elton John take your pick sort of thing in a Neil Diamond or whatever yeah. So that is our poll question of the day we will try and save it for as long into the shows who can actually debate on the air it's only a matter of time. On a Friday million to three day weekend that we get their butt and that's our poll question of the day you go vote actors spray on Twitter if you could learn how to play one instrument display in your life which would you choose piano. Or guitar and I believe it or not I put this up fifteen minutes ago we are at 5050 so it's a deadlock heat so far 5050 piano or guitar 55305. What would you Jews and learn how is both. There's a coolness factor with both us for sure yet there's let students who were on added you know. From from both Bono whether you whether you're a Bruce Springsteen sort of guy exactly whether you're a village all sort a guy. Yeah. So go vote at third straight entering into accident as well 55305. Have some someone that. A later on in the show L also coming up today the ducks' run other coaching staff Chris Christie took a dump all over the city of Philadelphia. But the play that audio for you Ernie Kent took a page out of Mike Leach's book. I'll lots to get you on the show today mobile start with what's going on this weekend the MBA all star weekend kicks off tonight. Does anybody still watch it annex often run on a Friday thank you for being what does on 1080 defense. Hey welcome back it up front and on a Friday thanks for being with us the tendon to a three day weekend for did you myself coming up on the our organ State's spring practice begins. Today some idea why so on front of the shell keyboard as far a lot of folks just like guard. Or fire him up. Guitar vs piano and just trying to make zero job a little easier today I I've I appreciate that potter does bring up to that point I love techs like this to combine two different things reason guitar and it's night and close haven't you seen the final scene from the wedding singer that's the best sand their movie. Letting singers line also forgot last say no wedding singer solid when he singer saw the only why I disagree with whole heartedly so far 55305 as somebody claiming grown ups is the best and the movie. Imagine running grownups I haven't either so maybe I'm out of my depth on Napa just gonna go on a limb and say there's no way that's better than exam are also our thoughts anger management was always underrated. With Mickelson hey is seeing them Latina Somerset has only five good Sam emily's I disagree I think his career in our opinion of him. Has been solely as the as the generations have gone because he just pumps out romantic comedies at this point to an end space that is say movie every time half. Basically the same thing every time I did forget to bring up one thing and an opening segment we'll get to MBA all star weekend. Here in just 12 I do want to let you know there's an appearance all of our station today. I did the Jersey Mike's job it's in happy valley it's on sunny side in a 172. Deadline. Grand opening the grand opening gone from 1130 so 130. And so just go on head out there against some sub catering boxes will be rattling. How often I can tell you how awesome those ride got one of those from my Super Bowl party and it was pretty sweet in its fed everybody. That was there and also got some Blake Shelton and Joseph Rogan tickets available so head on out to be Jersey Mike's. Subs the new location in happy valley on sunny side and 172. We'll be out there this afternoon from 1130. 2130. The Demi also we can starts this tonight actually it's the celebrity game as a whole. And what is now mean. DD do the MBA all star weekend as it is thanks Maria I thought I the show up on the sports radar radar whatsoever for you. Am I think if they were blazers in its. More than CJ in the three point contest I think tift if Dane or CJ you know got voted in or out god made the reserves I'd probably. Tune and there's really only one story line that is interest being at all in any stretch. I think. And it's that is for the actual all star game Sunday night and what Steve Kerr will do with Russell Westbrook in his four. All stars most notably Kevin Durant. Yet an in plane went against Iran can play with less prone to I am with you and that's almost a thing to where it almost kind of goes. And in hand with the theme of the entire NBA season for me like you go back to last Saturday. Where you had the Iran goal back to Oklahoma City thing that there was an intrigue around the game it was just simply what's gonna look like an introductions how loud easy to get booed. And man are they getting get into it at all and that was something as a sports fan for me. But you did just watch and highlight seated need to sit and watch a three hour NBA game deceived all right yeah of course Golden State's gonna blown out of Oklahoma City is not that good outsider Russell Westbrook and yeah I admit maybe it's just getting up there and age and and it's something that I used to get excited for now I don't but. It really doesn't show up on the radar at all and and I will eating good Texan to discriminate despot but the only all star events or weekend or or. Occasions they give me jacked up as a sports fan anymore is Major League Baseball. I think the home run derby is something that you there's always a chance to see. Something that you've never seen before Josh Hamilton going off and I was. I think the home run derby is played out you think is played out now that dad's in I read them all star game I love Major League Baseball all star game because you have. The best pitchers in the game against the best hitters in the game and they're trying to go out. And it does and the game they can play the same game that they played her in the regular season. Other then you know nobody's really slide in harder break up double plays runner that's the only thing they guzzling up plug in guys but otherwise guys are lay and out you know the same way and the pitchers are trying to get those hitters in and so yeah it's essentially the same game. One and I appreciate the most I love the skills competition for the NHL better than any other like. You can't add jumped. You know piece of of an all star weekend anywhere. Yeah and an you know somebody so that's 'cause it's your sport master mean baseball is my sport so I again obviously if you don't like baseball you're not going to be in the MLB all star game but. It's for the reason you stated in terms of its the only one. They are actually getting the best product available it's the only one of the guys are actually playing hard like what when you turn into an MBA all star game. It's no defense since its Alley oops it's basically just claim pick up basketball Regis out there are strewn around. Now in in the final what three minutes or so two minutes or so they'll get into it at the Dallas game and coaches are calling timeouts. They give you heard Steve further in the open I'm not drawn out and he plays a UK they got a does it make it there isn't there's no not a whole lot of skill and I mean I'm not a whole lot of semantics involved they just got the red balls out he still a big dunks he get how there. If you're DeMarcus Cousins your markets saw your deal Andre Jordan and you happen to be on the floor. I'm more curious to see if what is reckoned pardon will be on the floor at the same time. Annual auto forwards are big. Frustrated you're never gonna see the ball you're jogging back and forth on the court and earlier you might get to 125 rebounds if you decide you wanted to exert some effort to crash the offensive glass. That's the only way to get the ball and scoring and a. So shrewd so -- I hope west for does not pass the ball to Durant that's I won't watch the highlights just simply to see their interactions and how what they're like on the bench and what they're like if they end up playing together seasick like Durant like fixing doesn't sets a screen and actually tries to knock Westbrook down steals is steals the ball from there they tried to inbound the ball to Durant Westbrook comes out of nowhere and grabs it out of thin air and he died I even reached a point to as a blazer fan where. But even having a blazer involved doesn't do a whole lot from an ad that it used to be somewhat like that even back to like the Brandon Roy days I'm number one Roy made a couple All Star Games and yet he had the one year Phil Jackson ran about their four more minutes and anybody else in the he'd play great it was a lot of fun to watch led. That's for me it was sacked just kind of moved on again when Drexler was an boy those All Star Games I mean if miles torment I remembered the 92 all star game. The whole deal with Magic Johnson because he had had to retire he had the press conference earlier when he. Discovered he contracted HIV. And then where they gonna play in right from cloned you know being his redneck self. And then in that game everybody you know Isiah Thomas and MJ and everybody want to chance the guard magic magic take this piece on the other one someone with them and Drexler had the best outlined and but because it was magic cost Drexler chance for the all star MVP didn't get the MVP of the and I think I'd still little bitter about it and how do you think does he do is gonna do in the three point contest is Yemeni Jensen held when Annette thank god he's probably got a chance to get to the second rounds I think she is his. He's got more command of a stroke this season maybe the last season policies done wants and understand certain. But I don't know I mean clay can just rip it so. I think you might get out of first round second round I don't know forget the finals. Yes somebody said I think the NBA all star game should ever surprise straighter Russell desperate to be Eason a teacher first round picks up back over the last I'd like that getting less for verses to ramp one on one in the all star game. Now and that would be can't miss TV now and a lot of really like to three point shootout. So like the dunk competition as some years when it sucks that you get a year like last Europeans Carty or something. And it makes it worth it didn't somebody else echoing that same sentiments saying no home run derby really know look at the ball was crushed to dump contest is sometimes horrible. But is he only event that you might see. Sending that you have never seen in Beverly is I feel bad for guys and have to go and and yeah I hope I mean every dunk almost at this point it feels like has been done. Yeah it's hard you know now you're doing props and people and that sort of thing it's hard to just do something with your own body. That hasn't ever been done before because I remember watching I'm originally what doctor. And those sort of guys and then of course of the Jordan. Dominique Wilkins Drexler Jerome Kersey ones in the famous you know one at Chicago stadium I've. All that sort of stuff so. Would all start tonight with a celebrity all star game I didn't have a funny kind of we were tightly as frank and I were hanging out a little bit after the show yesterday. And we were talking about the celebrity game and he he made the the bold proclamation and he can score thirty points in the game. Now that's what I said. He said he would make 50% of his shots nobody would guard and nobody could stop them so we know of it ever there's a celebrity game he would be to take it serious guy. Oh there's no question he'd have a high sock TV slap on the floor but if you're not. Like one of those former players like in the usually have like some ex players none WNBA player. So if you're just a celebrity united. The minute do you start acting like you come play in if you hit a couple of jumpers or some thing. One of the veteran ex NBA guys comes over on you. A lot and yeah they they stop you assimilated 66 and played in the NBA for ten years will allow will ultimately come on guard yet. They get out all sorts this week and I were both an agreement now much of a not much of an event for us anymore but MEL star weekend does start tonight with a celebrity game and CJ McCollum odds on tomorrow night will be any three point contest so we'll see how we can do. And you get your right here on the fan the only blazer that is involved in the all star weekend festivities say inevitably would start today in Corvallis spring football for the Oregon State Beavers. Gina my Zell Bieber beat writer for the Oregon you'll hop on line to give us a preview next. They won't back and saw 33 out of Friday. Time really does lying when you hear a story like spring practices beginning. That one coming off guard but that is the case down in Corvallis today organ state spring football practice. Officially begins with that what better person to bring on the talk about it in the Dow we have on all season long organ state beat writer. For the Oregonian G demise you follower on Twitter at Jean in my -- she joins easily Gil mortgage. Mobile hot like Jim thanks as always for the time it's been a while continued believer already here spring practice starting today. I cannot believe it at all done at the earliest spring practice I've ever covered it aren't I I am. Am covering college football anywhere that I've been but here we are excel work or combining struck out about all he then it. Bring up alt well I think people I am in rent you on April. And go from there. As us via downtime not so fast I guess we'll spring football what's just got a meeting storyline is now we're going into a new year in the third year. Under Gary Anderson nice even with two wins and 40 is now going into that second off season what are some of the top story lines are looking for here it's spring practice. Cheryl you got to start with quarterback hurry it with John -- appeared in coming back from ankle injury market area and copy it. It started idol fixed income and gain some optical and there with those last couple victory could be heard. The big X-Factor is it it wouldn't be actually your college quarterback but it on and that's been able to hit the mainstream practice and a guy that's not accept an. More of a prototypical. They're rather than a dual threat but you would get in the second rat today in the upper practice they'll look how that it. It developed uncheck any given the opposite coordinator at mention each. You want to like and a flat starter quote early I don't really know what that means that after one week that after the end of the whole spraying it probably going to depend. Somebody is really separate but now that court where we have to start at at a greatly that still in your three weeks three quarterback competition. In or Alex aren't the program under the topic can earn back and another area has done you know the op on the line and they had to replace. Three starter and an inch on Harlow a duck and entering data entered either they are at nick and that's the key there in which may be young guys. Step up and it felt a minute ops will be a big a lot and on the deep and that I need you look at that he'd lock that up big playmaker like captain Dick dude somebody like Evans italics eight. Look how low and inside linebacker who Lubbock even tackled in which really comment you'll almost every app in higher even though again at that they'll note. They're all the re pretty big leader that the scheme a while now not early storyline but I'll I'll be watching but. Some and random things Alex into pop up at a well I don't want to start with that all. Having legitimize on the line beat writer for the Oregon in covering organ state football anti in my Zell. On Twitter organ live dot com and I'm curious I know this is just day one so they're just getting started but. Are you expecting maybe a different vibe I guess it's spring practices ya mean it seems like there's so much positive indeed they the end the civil war drown and they only won four games but. To seems like a lot of positive momentum going into the off season are you expecting a different five this year it's free practice. Yeah I kind of bacteria that today I would like an image different bird this eagle today irked is when you are locked in here you skirted the ballot you silk. A lot different now I think it you know you talk about the pop that moment summit are. Caring mapped through an and getting maybe shorter time in the wee Herman is getting right on eagle. I think maybe god create them. The pocket in Europe we can carry over at our head on into that he would meet with how I can just. To retain all agent are in a good spot at art knowing that even going over the tweaks that they made in in the early months before getting on his guilt for spring. Yes and I think. Definitely you know ever attacked you this time of the year because you want it. It Ehrlich is nearly bureau at all not up there on the bike everywhere but certainly acting that is at program not feel like. It is the opportunity to take an act that the opportunity to really make some progress on the beware art the art the op unit that I would eat. Practice pit where you're not preparing for an opponent you can really key too early to al-Qaeda than. And then Kerry got in the armor and then it popped up and and it is even though we'll be out but yet people seem to be a pretty good today and I would have expected that debate on it. Dey wanna spring in their finally put all things happening. Well I'm curious Jane you know you talked about Jake club and being there and endurance and come and back the quarterback position all three of them though sort of been different skill sets. Is there. As specific skill set that he did Gary Anderson in in the given would like to have. Of their quarterback to determine the starter to run maybe the offense that that they would ideally like Iran. Yellow partly they wanna throw the ball better and you got to cut something that they are happy Dili even look at your line went Collins and nick Mitchell mark. Area outplayed me the worst. Eat into Cotchery in the end and a lot of weight that was similar last year out they need to figure out a way to run the ball batter and enter that artwork. Somebody like Jake was it would mark prototypical pastor like I mentioned. Back. In the attic Liu lit bring it on and like you look at new lakers' secret code to adopt a and you coordinator at age you somebody who you know he played and you did adopt and Andre where one I need coached under a guy like you're down that. Are riled include Kingsbury and gain a hold her and these kind of hairy guys out not saying you're gonna completely transform our op Ed and become a pass happy. Unit but they definitely one aspect implement some of the. Equality even though frankly they need somebody who could execute out and dumping and given mentioned in the earlier on opt them or it's articulate that you wouldn't really looking or is that. They can't judge that quarterback idol just based purely on production and skill that not you know you hear about all the quarterback made it to the top and the back in May. If you look comfortable out there on the field greens are we gonna get it. I'd lined up right in the right it is called right leg. They wanna be able to give it to the most talent and the partly preaching them out shall. I'm not be on the quarterback at U ready to hurt you weeks early are you crack it had been. You know hopefully it. Excuse me put in the work during the op EQ that you that but that'll be really interesting lots but definitely. On assorted there that one throw the ball better and however. That. You know that the primary goal to make the stop and go because they run about curt and Matt. I've got the op at the line developed but they got the ballot in order to pick up in the well. Now we're talking or is say spring football legitimize Zeller he sees three football starts. Today believe it or not we're already there she's being a writer for instate for he or billion. Anti in my Zell on on Twitter account to part of for Eugene a first. A we have not had a chance to catch up with you since signing day saw and I wanna start we're just honing your thoughts on the organ state recruiting class. You know Gary Anderson did and then add the second part of that would be. I know we hit the JC trail pretty hard and in just kind of how many of the new names arena to see out there for the first time in spring practice. Yellow when you look at it. Signing class overall. You know it's a group that. Maybe it was a little bit more balanced than the previous well at it injecting equity into app and then of course are irked clap. They're kind of scrambling right they get that new clock stumbled I mean we thought. Let organ this year not spread to enact such a tight now and then last year they related knew they had to hit. That kind of hybrid outside linebacker and then I got beat a lot of guys I. In that area and then that year the court they hit in the exactly like was eager and on the back and in the secondary now at the line back. And it would really Canada Kirk I'd that I elect. Operative o'clock at. May be a little bit substandard or what you can expect from Gary Anderson crop art in a mixture of different conditions than you're always going to get out. And it still your need where you need and certain. Stuff but it like that kind of stabilize things that are at.

Doc comment it is crazy hoarding their spring practice meaningful Oregon State once shell note about the beavers were keeping an eye on. I'm trying to give both coordinators on next week pressuring Tuesday Thursday potentially sets us. Good fluid situation they wrap up they're supposed to wrap up practice right around noon yeah and so. Work in with bad men know will reconvene after the holiday to see how it all shakes out. Right and once they damage you mentioned an obvious the top storyline aironet it has to be the top story on for all organ state fans is the quarterback battle I mean that's just that's what Gary Anderson has not had in his first two years is is consistent successful play at the quarterback position. And it's something of one of those guys can come out of spring ball in and take the job and show that there they guy moving forward. That that changes completely I think the way you look at next season and the expectations from any games they can win. There's no question about that and then obviously the trick is to keep them healthy as the season goes on that'll be on the offensive line can they develop. Some consistency at the offensive line position. With five guys who can suit up but every Saturday for and so it goes hand in hand but definitely. I certainly get the sense they feel like third gonna work from a position of strength for the first time. In terms of depth at that position soul now it's just a matter of who's gonna come out and in seize control things. Yep saint Joe's guitar to go to bullets keep the ball rolling shall we the Oregon Ducks rounded out their coaching staff today but was there more to the higher than meets the guy and Nick Saban. Banned from high school Louisiana. Good for them little more palatable to act next on tending to the fan. Well what I said coach general manager VP Mike Johnston to join us top of the hour also don't forget come up with a 1 o'clock hour care creators for the Q do you best columnists in the cities can hop on line. Hasn't fumbled carry cal and at 130. I'll get the organ after just 12 at it would bring up this story just an avenue Nick Saban from high school Louisiana I quite into us like it's Mecca from broke that is just fantastic. Told fix and I wanted to we got a picture that let me know if I needed to be updated top of the hour. Ads on some happy Friday folks. So get this without slugger Todd takes on it there's a high school in the Louisiana. That is banned head coach Nick Saban Alabama coach Nick Saban. From. Come into the school recruiting any of its players its name is David feast or. And he said this on ESPN 1045 in Baton Rouge and he won't allow Alabama around this campus because they're not being ethical in their recruiting. And this all stems from the recruitment of Brandon Harris a kid. A who went to his high school and is one of the most highly touted quarterbacks in the country coming out of high school we ended up going to LSU we probably remember the name. Much like a lot of LSU quarterback CP was not very good and he announced and he is transferring from LSU on Monday but this all stems from the fact that nick Sabin. Apparently on multiple occasions either him or folks on his coaching staff. Hold up parents when he was still in high school or visited him at high school and quote unquote offered him a scholarship. App for the first time Harris was offered a scholarship feast or the head coach she done a little deeper he restarts Alabama. Any found out that it was an action the scholarship offer at all. It was just simply an offer to attend a summer camp to be further evaluated. But Harris all along had been sold you've been offered a scholarship from Alabama. A little bit later after that Nick Saban himself holds the school. Got Brandon Harris on the phone and offered him again a scholarship. And at that point to head coach assumed yeah yeah this has got to mean actual scholarship right. He said quote you have a scholarship at the University of Alabama they gave him a scholarship offer. However skip Brandon Harris and of traveling to Alabama in June to attend a summer camp. And found out simply that once again it was not a scholarship they basically told him when he got today camp. That they have other guys that are going to come through here and I promise them a shot so we're just gonna wait and see Dan. Ultimately never ended getting an offer from Alabama he ended up committing. To LSU and look things and Hanna from an LSU. But that questionable recruiting tactics has Nick Saban banned from one Louisiana high school. And he surprised the thought I'd bring that up locally though on college football. Willie Taggart has officially rounded out his coaching staff today if you miss the news Mike Johnson. As the last one to be hired he's going to coach wide receivers fox sports and Bruce Feldman were the ones that broke the news earlier this morning he's going to be replaced Jimmy Doherty. Who of course last week left that position as we told you go coach at UCLA and after a couple weeks of some shaking as in terms of the staff with reeds getting the do you why do already was the one that was in the car with him when he got the DUI. Both those coaches are gone one resigned the other left for UCLA. I noble those spots have been filled and an interest in local ties in my Johnson also began his coaching career at Morgan State he coached receivers and quarterbacks. Under Mike Riley from 9799. He followed Riley to the NFL the San Diego he was and a coach in the NFL for ten years from 2000. In 2000 antennae was the niners offensive coordinator in 2010 East Coast UCLA. So he's been all over the place but I I didn't part of this tire that has folks. Raising an eyebrow a little bit if you will not come which is quite comical. Is that his son. Mike Johnson Michael Johnson junior. Is the number one dual threat quarterback and he 2000 in nineteen recruit the. Member of the stories earlier in the week he was originally. Gonna go to Michigan now yeah but Beryl was there is some talk I don't know its proposed to where it is of the NCAA. Allowing a tenth full time assistant coach. So I don't know people know this schools are actually limited in the number of actual full time coaches. But you're allowed to have. I number it's nine yes and so they were reaching for a tangible that I was there discussion of cut bringing on that tenth full Lou allowing schools to have attend full time. Assistant in which case Mike Johnson was gonna go to Michigan and that's what god find bomb all fired up again all of carbide cheater. And while blah blah blah all fun Bob came out flat out so Karbala she now only for adding that tent assistant coach that bring you this guy on and hopes and of of course connecting the dots to get this quarterback in the 2000 editor. That's never happen anywhere else no other sport you wanna go last Kansas hiring Danny Manning's. That is an assistant let's start there. I did backtracked Mansoor about it is shot on Twitter today he called him Pete find bomb I believe he's a peep my mom needs to stick his nose three B knows what he's talking about her. Something along those lines but. Bit like this it's just good to have the coaching staff routed out my Johnson's going to be head coach. A wide receivers at the university of or again and maybe in Vienna landing a a top dual threat quarterback in MX Allegheny duck fans. Will be frustrated by that one other note too by the way as a number of listeners have pointed out. Apparently that head coach in high school got fired today the Louisiana head coach you band makes it could from his campus. That was too much now and then and then and now in Iraq and keep Alabama out Nick Saban pulled some strings he got fired look. That did I think that is something of the NCAA wants to get in and and actually do some thing. You know recur recruiting is a dirty business to begin went. But. Help clean it up. If there's an actual scholarship offer amazing yes let's have somewhere where it's made it's official there's some sort of documentation any school cannot offer Kadaziz with a kid like that yeah you're offered a scholarship well knowledge is an invite to let him eco let's have a process this is an offer has been made. And and I still believe every other sport I believe has an early signing period big college other than football so. It would be nice if you know there was something over the summer all those all the five star kids all the kids that liked. Everybody's after. Let's let them go ahead and make a decision. And then. Those schools can then start figuring out because you know there's a lot of kids we we see this in the northwest where there there's some really good Oregon high school college kids. Her high school kids. Who we think well maybe maybe there's a spotted a bid to change Washington State Oregon Oregon State maybe seven there they've got some big sky offers them out of a mountain west offer. But they don't know because all the five star kids at a Texas and California that that might still have a shot with rank with the ducks in the beaver and little big first yeah yeah so it would be nice to see the NCAA get in and go listen you can't offer scholarships that you don't have room for one. And to. Let's help you out by having an early signing period in the as maybe in the summer may be September. And do a first round. And then we come back and guys can start fill an upper classes that at the back Kendall. This 72 with a player if you remember in this class are pretty class there was a pretty highly touted kid that signed with Alabama. That he found out after signing day that they did not have made a spot on the they did have a scholarship left farm yeah it happens all the time doesn't instead of going somewhere else is saying screw you Alabama big kid. Is great surety for a year and nimble get a scholarship the following year round I thought that was pretty unbelievable but. Yeah happens all the time Sabin was banned and and head coach at this Louisiana high school. Was fired and your index on other coaching staff. Today we double loaded second hour on a show coming up story up on a Friday can creators the Portland Tribune he's gonna join us at 130 we'll talk a little Stoudemire vs Porter. The latest he's hearing on the NH LA Portland house of public audio Chris Christie took a dump on the city of Philadelphia.
