Pay its break here really appreciate you listening about to get some podcast excellence is presented by less Schwab tire is doing the right thing since 1952. And what's that gonna utensils or talking about real quick there's any kind of makes you wanna talk about. Any kind of say greats past and you know on the table and and he tell me I'm glad. Is this news durden Sprague. I went independence in and I. I went into public mental coach I know I don't know how easy when you get man and it just it's kind of being honest. Andy entered Johnson and Brendan spurted one camera club fire plan about what it's. So many parts to our. Durden sprayed on an 82 months they'll think you're hearing on the pulse or how. Linda. Those chain yeah. This final Howard Kurtz brag attended the Fannie Friday theatrics. Busting into any file how are they showed a spread online today is no fake sponsored already sprang to life why not change traditional strike in the line it was and since there are a thirty I don't get my fix sponsors and today I won about six bothers me and that's what happens when you get. Actual sponsors. If you miss about the way we did a Kevin taught on earlier in the show he went to jail. Is laying the big wood Dave folks who went to an L yesterday. On today heats at Maryland minus one and a half and Villanova minus ten and a half that's how the big would that he's talking about land. With Dylan Elvis and those are his takes off from earlier in the show if you miss that I would it's not a lot of use of circuit to the first hour get back to him. And a second I do what do briefly mentioned as well Marco faults committed to the NBA draft today one year. Dinah Washington he went to pac twelve games but. Kinda look at why some of these guys have not been successful who have been taken high in the lottery and we'll also talk a little organ docs they take on cow. And he packed wall semi finally get the winner. If they win today. A UCLA. And Arizona but Portland trailblazers got another one last night and I actually was thinking maybe I could come into the show and jokingly asked the question did anybody watch yeah he. But we've we've brought that up yes the right pay anybody don't watch anybody care. Well in the numbers come out according Comcast that was their highest rated game of the year which how do you feel if you can't just be how I mean you're always having the highest I mean right did you like tirade spies that's the game. Not sixers went out Joseph L east of the for the sixers play in the. Well I I think that just shows you how. Disenfranchised. The sand base was with. What was going on before the trade that not even the beginning of the year before yeah all of this happened. The second game of the year the first home game the first game in general I do think that might be the highest rating considering the expectations of us so much hype coming into the season there was something in the first month I would imagine but no it was a game on March 9 against Philadelphia shout out to use a caricature that -- yes seriously does he get a cut and action from Comcast the other revenue they got from commercials and they want last night 1140 annoyed if you didn't watch. I did go to overtime they outscored Philly in overtime seventeen. 211 the blazers have now won four morale I do wanna get back in and wreckage fever in the whole idea of him shooting three pointers but. I just got asked a question. We we've discussed it a lot we debated a lot of the last handful of weeks tanking eight seed what do you want draft pick playoffs. Is is the conversation kind of over because I've just reached a point they're gonna make the play now all -- I think that dialect unemployed even haven't talked I know Denver so there I don't Dallas is -- in Dallas complain a little bit better I think Dallas of anyways getting attachments going to be Dallas Dell's been playing good basketball I mean you look at the schedule other a couple of they got to play San Antonio twice against Houston so left on the schedule but there's a lot of easy games for the blazers and in their winning easy games now that they should be went to which I think fans that were in the -- center last night would respond with dirt really easy we almost lost to the sixers last night with Robert Covington they play down a competition but that at this point if you're rooting for the playoffs so when is when and they got one last time well for two modeling that taking. Eight -- and that that narrative officially died. And I think it's hiding it sailed about a week and a half two weeks ago. When they started kind of playing better and use of anarchy which was acquired as the went over Oklahoma City for me last week at home on Thursday and yeah I mean they're too far at this point I mean we we jokingly looked at it we said man it felt like two weeks ago. This team was a game and a half away from a top five pick now they're already four games better than the team that has the top five which is New Orleans a leader for its Orlando or New Orleans it's one of those two teams so they're going and in the direction of the playoffs right now as they beat Philly didn't look tough on Saturday night. A with Washington Intel but the man of the hour last night was Yusuf and our cage Abbe didn't see his stat might get this year career highs in points 28. Career high in rebounds 22 career high in assists with eight in a career high in blocks with six you file those blocks like the first four minutes of the game it felt like. I the first five times down Philly DE block their shot. An end and her pitch fever is reaching. If fever pitch here is values of markets after the game last now Comcast sports net. Thirteen it's a double double tonight what are honest I'm not had a quadruple double cutting the field and just had your best performance in your NDA cure. I. I mean. Okay. I'm not leveled. That's the way. I'd initially be easier than this one but they can win I mean we needed it and Allan good how did just building near the ruler of rip city. I knew I had a career high in points and rebounds. And it blocks which of those means the most to you know I think because that is limited profile platform. The health club. I don't know if you've heard it. They can hear it now has dirt hits fever do you have any idea you had such an impact on the street so quickly I'm reserve the right now admit it. I. I know he has a girlfriend but can you imagine him walking no hotel room with you nothing but the group is good everybody got a New York Steve and I had a really good and I fear that I see you although is there anybody out there that is an -- favor all Illinois land now all I've had buddies tax media you talked I talked to my family members like everybody. -- it's fever how do you not I mean you have to do what's right negative of like what is about Americans say you're not enamored with I think it's these it's incredibly. It's somewhat ignorant of us because it's such a small sample size just small samples but based on what we've seen and what do you complain about it keeps getting better game like it may mean that the worst out and I think he has was to run on that was a game that he got two teeth knocked out he wasn't playing he still wasn't bad defense only Lebanon and all right Natalie just in terms of debate performances in Portland. He wasn't doing a ton against Oklahoma City then all of a sudden the other night he scored six points in 55 seconds has to be huge buckets in the final minute of the game. And then last cinnamon a career high in points rebounds blocks an assessment guy. EEA's kind of done it all to this point and and it leads us to our poll question of the day in our FaceBook posts today we debated this a lot the first hour curious to get. Your thoughts at 55305. You can chime in the Jason quick was colonizing suit yesterday of Comcast sports and he said you supermarkets is gonna try. And in kind of put three winner. And do his game and start to develop his game that way Terry Stotts and it won't happen this year but next year he's working on and a lot in practice why not that's our poll question of the day 81 an at a three quarter to his game. A 21% say yes 51%. Say no. 28% say Americans can do no wrong at this point. And it it just steal it we analysts are Texan even before I asked the question. Think Portland's finally got a big man who's a force let's not mention three pointers in her kids in the same sentence and let's give us that's a year before he messes. That up and then there really is you know maybe I went too far in the opening sect are opening our first heard it yet you by the Meyers Leonard there's a big fear factor I think we finally have a traditional center again down. After five good games he starts dug about him shooting three point I don't reduce the problem is our example is Myers and I don't I don't think that needs to be a fear or example that's a one off Myers. A long time ago in his career has been nothing but short of what we expected. It's a media there was just a moment where he checked out as opposed player was done even now I keep. And our kids to me based on what we've seen an Alley flows in this offense it's night and be different if he shoots two threes a game he shoots three threes a game. That's not gonna change a whole lot of his impact in my opinion you may not liking it. But if you shooting mid range jump shots and I notices last night he picked he rolled. Any shot a mid range that was maybe seven inches in from the three point when he netted it it was a big shot late in the fourth. If he's doing that take the extra step back and shoot the three. Because to me there's no difference at all and analytics would basically tell you the exact same thing so of that's going to be part of his game and how he plays in this system. Shoot the 3M OK with I don't want to go overboard I don't think he will this is a slow process that will build up when quick says that he's working on three. I tendon knocked in over my skis on that comment. The way that it can be perceived what I mean by that is we also are quick talk about me some palm we was improving his mid range jump shot. He shot the ball horribly from the mid range this year at some point Mason calmly may adopt that. And I feel the exact same way about use of American chain may work on it this summer I believe he will. I don't expected to be ruled out next season im wasting a hundred and yeah. Yeah that was the fear factor that I have and it just sound and it's a short term memory of watching Meyers Leonard who's not a sinner and now we see a senator and a cycle cardinal please don't go on Thursday. I stand the pain and you know I did Tim Duncan didn't sting once and as I see him have a three like Duncan I Canadian but he won't take them often Duncan didn't shoot him very I don't know what I'd have to look at the most he took gonna seed yet you don't look at the numbers but they were pretty rare another one a lot of people are pointing to his Marcus hall as the -- ample he asked the comparison thing is most apt in terms of what he could be if he does shoot the rising you look at the numbers from Marcus all throughout the course of his career and tell this season the most threes he averaged per game was point two. This year it's up to three point seven I give the guy didn't shoot three pointers really Intel this season. On now he's taken about four from the game and that that to me it is a little extreme for a seven foot rhino Marcus sauls to hit 38% among many did when when man doesn't how is that that game recently. And he was hit threes and it just brings a different element to his game. That didn't I just don't want a sizeable chunks of the shots coming from out there. And I don't think he's the player dirt just based on what we've seen from his attitude his kind of his smile is Koran miss his bowling I don't think he wants to I think he loves to be down low in the paint. VO load to be a force to be reckoned with and just for reference think on the Duncan stuff 992000. He shot eleven threes. And then he went on a stretch double digits year 27 and no one. Ten in 0222. And 0312. And 04. And it went down significantly after that he had one year in two dozen nine tons and where he shot eleven after that basically in his Corey he shot. Seven was the most sought racked Duncan had a little stretch there of for the most part did not attempt a lot of home. I'm I would be looking more for him. And this is pie in the sky because we don't give this kind of credit. To me I'd be giving more I'd be looking for more of him to beam a LaMarcus all like yeah markets saw last your shot three total. And he's 89 years into the league he shot three total which was down substantially from the seventeen from two years prior he shot 288 this year. So he went from shooting three and an entire season today right now he shot 288. Yeah a lot of lot of cuts coming in near the Symantec's line a couple of them are staying reserves is against a reserve on the new big men are or how much hype promise Oden showed in training camp and went on the floor need a bigger sample size and one he's the Jeremy Lin a Portland three weeks of great than nothing it's. We knew what I don't think he's the stimulus sanity chairman Len was it was a very unique example I Elson only 28 and twenty something to be expected. And time stamps on knows no don'ts at the ceiling that high but where's your level and wreckage fever out five or six games into his sample size. What do you think about him taking three pointers old reset your thoughts on the other side. Also one of the top prospects has or he declared. For the NBA draft put it means for the future of Washington why sometimes these lottery guys don't pan out next on Teddy to the fan. They Rebecca black coming up and about a half hour who I can't wait to hear from Rebecca black it's been awhile still less so serenade you into the weekend I woke up in the mood today for a beer can play around that. I guess I SI think Mallon drink beer right now I had that for like three days I haven't had 1 yet who I am looking forward to tonight tonight is a big date night. Oh little date with the white fayed the bright and I are getting away for a night or got them re gone with the date night plans we're going to this place in the east side somewhere in CN eats a burger joint. Some way to Mount Hood. And then we're going to. Watch Logan. All the X-Men the new X-Men movie movie yeah I'm not a big X mineral Wolverine guy but this one looks bad ass and it's rated. Good movie out great like yeah I meet my expectations were too high as the hunt present reviews which is my own fault I set myself up for my 100% failure. But given a solid a man it was a good mix of there was like some funny scenes. Scary moments it was a thriller iron it's a very good twist on a thriller yes it was entering its I really wanna see it because I am I I've seen the preview a million times I still can't really put together. What goes down. Yeah idea of what's going on right you don't even really know what's going on why you're watching it yes I dig I don't wanna give too much away but didn't like it's one of those kind of movies. And if you've seen the videos by the way to get out challenge. When you see the movie it'll crack cue up the and you see those videos that I've thought about having swagger you do wonder do they get challenged later yeah okay I think there's that scene is in the trailer and dame dame did that on another round yet there's a scene where just a missile get anyway this is a scene where one of the people run directly at him and then at the last second they turn teammate it was like then they're like what the hell is going like this guy just runs out and just heard it goes the other way. So there is a gathers again out challenge that is rather be like Chris Farley rent that guy on campus and Tommy Boy you got to keep crowds down. So yeah I calamity James by the way is that we have taken that we are gone. All claim did you ask is that well I didn't never been there effort it's delicious I had and it's delicious a lot of folks at chimed in now company I can't even begin murder. I'm just kidding I'm dice where there any of it is getting. When I now believe complex for promise of getting the real thing majority you're nuts and berries can I can I tell him well able get back in ablaze and I promised tunneling. You sidetracked his holes Edmund. Do you know what Greg did for lunch today. I am very good lunch you know it's breaking right behind the scenes sprayed brings like eighteen things atop Warren for his line she's got like Leggett tote bag that he brings and elixir is got two in front of our knowing is killing marine sooner than it had to double word cases in front of them he's got his bag all right and this is your every day Borger we had a couple of leaves a couple of Barry's little things right. Sprague I eat at the at this thing that was brown one of the top where things like is that brownie what are you eating for lunch like none man's mistake. Four ounces or could have today why didn't say that I didn't see is all I can have today I dissent it's all I have. And stake raw almonds and an orange what's wrong with that lunch that was good lunch I was four ounces the stake was again would you eat for lunch. I had no those leftover salad from this is somewhere in the girlfriend got an a stolen out of the fridge Lorie you cool. I you talk about her kids DM that is the time bears oh my diet that is a Tom Brady mail is Tom Brady were to I can use of Americans let's reads a mere 555305. The big man wants to shoot. Three point errors are quick time you're the main thing is we literally swamped our center for a better one. Also got a first round pick for any shout out to oil shale are we still skeptical on all right here's the thing is we've got to listeners say all the station hates the blazes because of Isaak rock you know and that's the most. Wrong same ever heard him shout out to me all set. He stole use of generic cage and got a first round draft pick form that's amazing and they're probably gonna pass Denver. Which will (%expletive) Denver Roth Denver is ahead of schedule with young guys but that's gonna pissed and drop that was an incredible deal. I don't think it a step further. If Neil O'Shea has the same prowess with that deal on draft day using the three page to get something I fully trust that they are going to be back as a better playoff type team next year and maybe more on their way as a contender that guy knows how to Wheeling deal. His only weakness is free agency but that's a lot of GM's weakness when they come deport oh yeah nobody can time he sold this is a 53. When you don't this year so yeah yeah we hold them accountable for that yet they he set himself up for that failure I was in my way over the skis opinion America ages that would be a great hold applaud. I give this is the center in the future not that he's ever going to be the best center in the league nobody's gonna go that far he's not the next opponent such as. Calmed down a little bit. But if it is your long term starting center at least. That's three of the five holes he basically up plug for right now what you have one chief for next year's got one more deal on his rookie deal before you decide if you if you pay him a huge contract so that's the beauty of having him yet somebody set a stats aside this is from a Lebanese and stats aside I've been most excited about her pension crunch time he's been clutch against the blaze a third ended the game option he's not afraid to take shots it's true we did it against Oklahoma City six points. The content of my seconds and a one I think Americans is the real deal is good and everything how did this guy slipped through the cracks. Decent point well you had. And Joseph I have a good senator and may have that's why he's in plain point seven top seventy minutes again. Ozzie is I'm running in 99.9 tempo over the new or has it many players productivity usually improves more minutes right now nice player a larger sample size needed to determine his value to the team PS. Great attitude is a huge plus nowadays and certainly was going over what does that do to be like he has upped his free throw percentage which came up money for them last night in crunch time. He's opted by eighteen to 20% if I'm not mistaken. I got fifty some percent free throw shooting tegra 677%. Yeah it's down as a visiting analysts don't win titles teams are senators that don't shoot threes and say next in the basket do. In spring Alex don't want titles body Cleveland Goldstein San Antonia last three title wonders. And they won we are using and no movement in the my missing something on the upper somebody's that they're reading Denver four runs in Denver fans are not feeling good about this trade so far. I would imagine so I easily production I did see one funny to me I can ever who called tweeted that somebody basically said. Is this the case for every former nugget player that once they get out of town they just turn into B this this jumble the players like the Seattle mariner theory no I think you'll win it are we sure that he's the only player that's great on the alrighty I'm that we do maybe they are all bad winner on the nuggets roster that was pretty funny too weak. Now let's go one more on this current situation we didn't look at Myers like oh he was once decent and oppose an Alley shoots threes Myers is crap that. But all phases and Myers never really had much of an inside or outside game. But he eventually I don't know for whatever reason stocks the coach that I don't know who was but at some point you basically just told him just stand on the perimeter weight. Yeah amend it would valid point Dirk is great I'd take 158 and four defense all day at the five he's only 22 years old and again that was appoint Jason quick was on primetime yes it talking about America it's natural this'll 3.3 point shooting thing came from that. It's easy to forget that he's young and that this is a young team that one of the youngest I think if not the youngest team in the NBA second or third in our conversation right noted the payroll second. Wisely that's not desirable but you out of 22 year old reasoning that's the exciting part is. You've seen him flourish now I mean that was a concern when you herb or the excitement I think when the trade was. He was played seventeen minutes a game it was some like what he's gonna get more run in Portland. But there's never a guarantee that you say are right he's put up what nine points and eight rebounds in seventeen minutes if you play in three that's gonna turn into eighteen and fourteen. There's never a guarantee that happens but so far with the Mormon it is just continued to Fuller I. I think it's pretty encouraging here to if you if he can finish out the season. Playing kind of this consistent level twenty into when he is not that level but it's. If he's giving you fifteen and eight if that's the level we get from use of Americans the rest of the season. Barring injury. I think it's totally fair in the summer in this may be a hole lead Portland question I really do think it's at least fair. Do you now have three pieces. Where you don't just easily dismiss use of anarchist as it would jet peace to be using in the Western Conference you see at the rest of the season there's no reason you can't have that cup now there's no reason at all going into the offseason I still maintain CJ's Jamal Crawford 2.0 and that's not a bad thing that's not a knock on -- literally an offensive player yeah. On and I still think dame. Look at his numbers post all star game they're great David and in some of the best amongst all point guards in the NBA so. I think you can at least go into the playoffs I'd you're gonna get swept to lose in five to whoever you face. And then eagle on the off season with a hopeful thought of many sub dame CJ. And now use of America it's is emerged as the surprise piece that nobody expected them to have. Yeah lots of good thoughts committed appreciate Elliott our action in 55305. The New York fever is a real folks he had 2820 last night dominant performance even on the team's performance wasn't dominant they beat Philadelphia. In overtime they take on Washington on Saturday we'll see if the Newark fever. Just continues into the week and we ended DiMarco faults or maybe that's what we can save and income say that for next must save for next Monday for next week yeah Marco faults are declared for the draft today in Washington they were 19 games on the two of the pac twelve likely. Potentially the number one pick in the NBA draft will say that. A for next week but speaking of the packed all the stock of the impact of hoops the organ ducks take on cal tonight UCLA Arizona might be the game and all college basketball this evening. Does organ need to win the actual tournament to lock up a number one seed its neck yeah. His 34 Friday. Donovan ten minutes it will break down team USA's first game of the World Baseball Classic. Yeah. Karzai do I do I go even say it was straight face. Don't care about America. You know when I am so well with the weather it'll be a lot of our entry on you care about Israel advancing it's kind of a cool still working and. Now Mendez how to react like we care about that. This is kind of bows out like a cool story. It's Israel Luna who knew is that linking him the only regret it based known to man. Our how many of those players. Are alike. Boren. Actually who actually grew all I am born and raised in Canada Israel verses. Had. Great all Cole who emigrated from Israel like your years ago 90% of them and not to say that Joey bats was not because I don't know is like story but. I saw Julie bats. It'll like James ceiling home run for the Dominican yesterday at camp hello I'm in. You know the Joey along former. Oregon State's second baseman he's pulling for team China. Oh is really yeah I'm not town which is cool furlongs on team China yeah. How about that but would I don't have to be mean c'mon is it anybody Jewish can play for Israel. I don't know what works the actual I don't know what the qualification is how far back they go on the answers. And doesn't say roster read Iran if I don't recognize the vast majority of these names I davis' name and I know Scott Feldman is a name and I know. Scott Feldman C he's the only guy that lives in Israel c'mon man let's see I really don't recognize that many of these as some of the guys are in Major League Baseball organizations and does not say. One guy actually plays in the Israel association of baseball as tackle shot out to him Berry was pretty pumped about it. Yeah in term married yet intern barrier of thinking is how is he Joseph pushed. Probably why it was doesn't come up in the interview now. You didn't bring up the release asking these Jewish she asked the background I know the second question in my interview here are you at Jewish are you judge and now not Lutheran man I was number two Ayman permit area and sorry. Why does events and yeah I mean it's like you're right but at least I give them the credit that I recognize likes or the names on their entire Oscar. Some an undefeated at three you know somebody's that is is equivalent to the Jamaican bobsled team it absolutely is sooner they played baseball right eluded the jamaicans to bobsled. Now nobody else I think the Jamaican bobsled team deserves a little more credit. Baseballs and it's it's a worldwide thing bobsledding is not camp fair enough and they're in Jamaica eight practice on hills. When the bobsled. Not a nice made the actual tournament heats up to nine semi final games going on they started 6 o'clock. Is the first up NC organ docs in the first one up California vs Oregon Ducks are nine and a half point favorites according to espn.com I think that's spreads gobbled at the cycle when you see Elaine Arizona and this surely is a big reason. Why it was so important for order to get that top seed in the pac twelve because they get the path to the championship game without having to face UCLA or Arizona well tiebreaker at least tiebreaker she anti shake as they were the tiebreaker. Co champions if you will. In the conference I was Arizona but they won the tiebreaker because they beat Arizona head to head. But ordering cal tonight one win away from another appearance of pactel tournament champion get game that we we sprayed line earlier I picked Tel plus eight and a half I could be way off on this you may be think the ducks are gonna blow cal out wouldn't shock me at all organ is a great team I just think towel. Not only is best defense of team in this conference I just think there are some some matchup problems down low inside. Not everybody has the size they cal does. So I think is going to be a close game but I still aboard and going whose title. If this is the point where cal player having to play the extra game now you're playing your third game in three nights and if the ducks come out and wanna maybe push the tempo and see how many how much legs they've gotten left eye can see origin especially if they're hot early. They did they can run away with this. I know Cal's played a really close and incidentally incidentally mind in the two win they've been grinder Ers who wore one in big game act pal a couple of weeks ago the ducks couldn't of played any worse nose cap so. They dug themselves out of a huge first half hole 161 half points ray was it was ugly now. So I don't expect them to play that bad but I think they might try and crank it up and see if they can run and see where Helm how much gas cal has in the tank. Yeah edge I mean just kind of watch and that that game yesterday against Arizona State they started really slow and they they will not the second half callous indifference has its account to cover the spread earlier we string linemen. And I NAFTA gimmicky keep it close ate half as was what you had to spread adding it's gone up a little bit. Since then since we did that segment McAllen is a unique team I don't Specter or to play as bad as they did as you mentioned swagger in the first half for men to come back big. And the second happened the other game that's going on tonight in the pac twelve probably became a ball college basketball I mean you got the duke North Carolina rivalry which is awesome. That's coming up here and now a little over nauert ODQNC 4 o'clock on ESPN. A but the nightcap on ESPN's going to be UCLA Arizona the three vs the seven. It said 8:30 PM did you silly slight favorites over Arizona but that's to be one hell of a game. UCLA and plays like they did last night Arizona is gonna beyond. They could of run USC out of a jam band aid Jess took their foot off the gas the defensive end. He can't do that against Markkanen in Trier no. And so the question is is can Alford keep their head on an intense for forty minutes. I always wonder how much of that was UCLA and they shouldn't do this in your better team need I don't think you do this but how much of it was them looking for because there. It company against USC UST VUS oh evaluate EC LA this year but. I still think they're never worked confident I mean they had some they had some leads of around twelve or Ford but they never got up by 21 you know it's never a laugher. They would they would push it out to 101112 points and Mike Coughlin would bring USC right back so yeah they EO was never a point third you know if anybody outside the top seven rotation was who Alford was put in the game. Yeah yeah UCLA Arizona did did you think the winner of the pactel tournament this weekend's gonna get number one seed. Yes absolutely yes I think it's UCLA Arizona or Orlando is still left out squad because somebody's gotta get a mini guy I know is going to begin Zagreb and a lot of it has to do is North Carolina yet what are airliner a lot of loses tonight then it's going to be and mineral begin Zagat and the pac twelve Warner I need to I think that's going to be the conundrum is if North Carolina wins the ACC tournament if if Carolina wins I think Villanova runs the table they're they're they're Philadelphia as he had an animal into Kansas is they guaranteed it even without having to win their conference tournament and they're done TCU beat him yesterday. There's two. If Carolina runs runs the dot later in the ACC which is a highly respected conference this season I don't know how long you have no case for them to not be number one seed like they are absolutely of one if they win. That leaves either games Agha who as one loss. Or you go pac twelve team where their resume is clearly. More tough then in zag and to me it's. Actual team and you are aimed whatever happens in that case you'll see them both in the west as one and two seeds whether it's in Zagreb I never got that bulls wanna or the other way around yet that's the way I see it to and so bill bill pit them together can zag and going to Salt Lake and then the pac twelve undergone Sacramento mess like and Lennar he's been kind of adamant about this could have been eased. Piped in almost every game on television right now. He's been tied at a native saying look even the winner from the pac twelve to seat. And I I just don't agree with that it still minority so it's Joey brackets but I just I don't mean it is for him when Saddam went up four losses on the season full deposits 48 and for Arizona has for a lot of amnesty I have a three and I've got some good wins Telecom for nine and three yeah elected I mean this is again this is not like I hate and zag I think just go look at who they played from start to finish. That's not even a contest to me it's org in UCLA area Arizona over organs that you what do you think the winner of the pactel should they get the number one seed 5530 filed talk a little selection Sunday to close the and that's this weekend and you Cephalon are your brackets.
