College UC analyst. Bruce broke coach pearl thanks for taking a few minutes for us. I'll mark what are you ready -- don't. Doing drew my good friend from high school where can join me to start off the a program because it's a team you have heard in awhile. Pop up or a great thing about what the crowd went groups. I couldn't tell whether blue corner cheering -- well. -- -- Like I add -- that my brother Justin Wilcox says a keeper had up. In Baghdad do you like give me some pointers on what to do on defense sometimes. I know but that's we. Our defense looked in the same -- your brother left -- cute -- that we're we're lucky to have him. But I think I did get the ship righted at -- right now which Gerald. Is onboard the captain of our ship but I think he's gonna. To get our program back to where it belongs. I coached for let's get back in the skating this in college hoops here. First -- I wanna ask you about is building eighteen kids here and organ we've got a team that's ten NL. Thirteenth ranked team in the country. But they do it a different way than most schools do we needed to schools that are up in the high the rate Z there have before your guys today go with the one and done route would Dorgan has been doing is -- special and unique in the fact that. They're one and guns are guys that have played four years. End or are coming to the program for one year as basically -- pit stop. It. This kind of new wave in kind of building a team with these one and done type guys that are seniors. Which I love it all right you know I. I built my programs were great transfers. Took an -- school players that wanted to state or years and grow and develop. And worked our our may edged. And we took big -- transferred or ray players. That had already been through a lot of -- The thing that they need to go through either recruiting or. They're transferring her that you wasn't what they want to be and I look at credit here lash. Ticket to bring -- the right way and we have got -- at all and it it it it it really -- -- good good marriage. I'd love to transfer said I rule was just take your freshman and -- church -- And you got a chance to be very successful. I would ask you about Dana -- a guy that win or Reagan had that job opening. His name I think in the basketball universe was highly thought -- that maybe not outside everywhere else and he gets this job and has really done a hell of a job with all these them you know. Our schools in his way even playing in the pac twelve and putting together a program. Just like you mentioned -- in the right guys the right fit. He's probably I would say one of the more underrated coaches out there. Easier Portland Oregon or somebody -- leadership try to recognize. Is that there was some elite coaches in the -- well yet Ben -- the sheer -- He had Sean Miller Arizona. Yet Mike Montgomery Al you know grocery got a text a lot of earlier taken a backseat to anybody. Are -- an -- Arizona State. -- -- Got some really good exit -- category though it up but washed and -- you better bring in a guy. That is not going to be overmatched. And they called -- that overmatched by any. And you've got other strengths at the university. That you can recruit you and you look at it well it's not try to not the most dynamic personality. The most elect just buying a recruiter. He's a very good teachers -- -- you're really good guy air about it competence. And that's what -- about it but at all it got published things. And bells and whistles that you could spell you put those couple things to -- and so -- an outstanding match. In what is kind of the most important thing for US as a coach is it being able to get in those homes as a recruiter or is it -- is -- nose in college basketball. -- -- pretty -- the next knows I mean. They can beat -- it is it yours and you better be able to have that. And then end it after that. How are you -- oftentimes depends on the players. Other workspace has won every year. I want every year are all right but I went further -- are really talented most of our. So that's going to be cyclical for -- -- not going to be the most out of every year or don't win every year but when you got great players you just gotta go little -- At how many beat this or your roster. Might be probably is deepest and one of his mortality rosters -- Andy and the airport that -- could go low -- -- -- article written. Actual chip programs -- -- that they just are out there. ESP in analysts the Coach Bruce Pearl is our guest. Coach you got Arizona ranked -- number one -- some really good basketball pac twelve probably playing better than a lot of people thought you know Colorado Tony. Are you -- -- right there is or some other teams out there. That you would say keep an idea on these teams are gonna maybe start to hit that peaking you should be looking for the next couple months. In a packed well. Today in the pac twelve well I think you've got it right whatever sold at Colorado used -- I -- -- -- You know error or a stay Johnny Carson. Herbs and that got a chance. And don't ever bet Mike Montgomery out he is huge it is. Gonna coach you -- -- operate pressured. Our and then Stanford. You're got a really solid she would care at army and -- -- -- -- -- there are Iraq restrict years. Well -- -- all juniors and seniors. And so are would -- it -- to -- a reload you talked a -- Utah right now. Re litigate BYU last week so I agree that -- almost better. Probably talked about. Go to -- I know we got a and it's time -- get a gig on but I wanna get you -- -- behind the Syracuse said that says none of these guys in this class are worth tanking what are your thoughts on the the freshman class. In the draft class that's coming up this year are any of these guys worth taking a dive in the India. Are they weren't like now taking dives for you being -- -- -- -- know all the time I know what I don't know. Got a little -- -- that area you know me. You know it's been a lot of time since Olajuwon laps and and you know there are so that your players. I don't I don't opportunities team should look at I don't know of an area mother not a ticket or.
