You know he's one of our favorites as you'd hear him doing Stanford football Stanford basketball of course television sensation Scott Reese joins this year. On night at five point seven million right buddy mark. Madness man and and not just that but it's that Thursday and first Thursday and Friday March Madness like fantastic. Is it the only events that. That is out there that the beginning is better than the end. Yes. Without question and I'm glad you said that because that's not bad for a long time and I have. You unless I have a vested interest in either my team or my bracket of course is is you know we in the final four. This is infinitely better then the final games. You know one guy I want to talk to you about because his dad just won't stop. Of our ball is now I and is going to be better than LeBron James he wants billion dollar contracts Thursday it he's now saying he could beat Michael Jordan one on one. I mean it's at some point Scott. At does the player Alonso go dad you need a pipe. Up up up up up. Wouldn't that be great you know and and maybe there's a method to the madness wreck at once whenever that day though you know maybe it is this Padilla. That the grand scheme of the grand plan is that to keep its all the attention is on the the loud now dad and you know decide to distill out and play in and he's. I mean he's off the charts he is so good he's my number one pick in the draft for etiquette anybody cares but yet another the debt needs to stop talking I don't expect it to happen. I'm glad you said that because obviously I think it's you guys you and Roxy Bernstein your your my pac twelve guys and yeah how good really easy. He's had a sticky heat. At this level you just don't see many guys who haven't. This kind of ability to make everybody else better you know I mean sure you see it it's sort of a cliche with point guards and a lot of them make their teammates better but not to the level. The Alonso ball elevates everybody around I mean look at what going insulated last year they were ten. In the attempt in the nation get in the pac. And this year their final four contender and I realized TJ leaves a great player but I'm mad man it's the same team and it's blog the ball that's what he's done for the game. Now the big disappointment for me is I always loved to pay always big twelve is over fives two weeks because we note she's gonna happen at least two times. Only once this year but it continues to happen there's always going to be at twelve middle Tennessee took down the gophers admit at Minnesota 81 to 72 in that amazing just that number though twelve in the five. The way that matchup always works. It is and you know what may be this year that may be eleven as the new twelve right as you know we saw you at the and we saw a USC with a big upset win today but. Yeah you know it's it's that you can count a lot of people just picked twelfth by default and you know you're gonna get at least one albums so you know I guess a lot of it parity you know I mean it's. And where were the Danish you know having this conversation. Last night about twelve is right I mean court twelve seats twelve seeds are. The best of the rest of the mid majors and by that I mean throw act in the Pakistan merit to Wichita State you know. But but the rest of the mid majors in the entire country. The best ones are going to be two outs and they're two pretty good basketball teams there and they can compete with that's the sixth seventh eighth place teams in major conferences. And how about Rhode Island you talk about the eleven over the six outing Creighton 84 to 72 up and sacked. You have yet that was impressive now that it analysts say it is an asterisk next to put if you have followed. College battle is followed Creighton and all their best player was lost its. Midway through the season with an injury and since that time Creighton was under 500 so. It wasn't quite the gas upset that you might have expected it greatly couples break I think it probably win the game but that's said. On nights when for Rhode Island and any early in the Rhode Island and one term in games four and Versa that was big for them. Scott Reese joins us young Chris Townsend show 95 point seven game it's early. When it's all said and done how well will the pac twelve do in this turner. I do well I mean went three year fourteen or DL topped preceded. He got to feel pretty good about it now and USC's already playing with house money and I certainly don't think that they will win another game. But I'd I'd I didn't expect to win this what SMU's really good and at SMU's offense for a good offensive team looked about as bad as I can imagine them looking today and they still only lost by one. So you know I think USC's run and to the next game but the other three obviously are legit organ without Boucher takes it or it was a final fourteen to need the before Chris Boucher went down and and he is important enough and it changes the landscape that I don't I'm going as far now but packed club will be there I think the other freer on the sweet sixteen although. I will say panic. It if you're an adult can calm in the metrics. If you look at Saint Mary's Arizona. It looks really good on paper and again mark going to be pretty in pretty entry. How can you imagine odd that what are some gray area because it's the battle to get to San Jose act can't write ago those games in the sweet sixteen and then of course. Your stare in the air act and Zach do we know is so good. Guess first look can you imagine Saint Mary's gone back to the sweet sixteen and playing in San Jose and second of all can you imagine Saint Mary's to go to the sweet sixteen at San Jose and who would they be playing in the next game. Ya keep you here in the elite eight potentially would be get stagnant for the fourth time this year frankly we know that movie ends but just deceased sailors were another game would be phenomenal. You know what it's one of those deals were someone's had your number and then people losing tool and then it reminds the years back when the Dallas Cowboys could they can't beat the New York Giants until the New York Giants finally beat them up in Texas Stadium so it's tough to keep beat a team over and over again. It is observers somewhere it's really hard to beat teams four times in one year on the I don't expect us to get that chance but boy elect is that it would be phenomenal for the area it's Saint Mary's somehow pull that upset tomorrow. Add all the number one seeds you know college basketball's much as anybody you look at all the movies think is the strongest. Of the one seeds. It for me is Carolina. I thought they did in two weeks ago I noticed that Carolina can win national championship believe it or not actually changed my tune in on that got duke winning the title now which just makes me almost physically ill. But but the way duke has played in terms talent and now they finally got everybody kind of healthy clicking for the first time all year they were my team to beat. On Carolina I think is the best number one and up to that man. Our likened that a lot and I'm gaga can dagger coming out of that region and a lot of people aren't buying it and they point to the conference that. This is not always has to bask in the acting in the they've ever had the that this this team is. Absolutely on par with the Villanova is and and the campuses of the world I really believe that. In Kentucky always has so much talent and everybody's a one and done you you just. You never know all right. No you that you never do and and you'd especially in. You know it's the NCAA tournament it's different you know these kids that you think you know and and you don't know and and every year we see one of the big boys go out extraordinarily early and really seemed to this point so I'm not saying Kentucky's gonna lose. Aid and he didn't immediately brought out there I don't have a lot of faith in this group of one and ones monks a great player but this is not the Kentucky teams. We've we've seen some more talented one and done Kentucky teams in recent years and as well let's put that. You know do you have dual and go to the warriors post game show at Matt's time Mets we just you know Carl Anthony towns we just saw him he said while Jamal Mashburn had a pretty good career obviously. John all a bit there hasn't been a lot of great Kentucky players. Carl Anthony towns could be the best it's amazing how much talent they did and it's also amazing that. No one ever really becomes the great player in the Indian. Yeah I mean I think you know you'd mentioned pounds he's obviously on the fast track to be in an all star for a decade and Anthony Davis is the same way so. I DeMarcus Cousins I mean you're you're you're seeing more of these these guys. I think become stars at the next level so I don't know that they're completely fixed that label but I think five years ago you probably looked at that would raise our presence again we're result Kondracke yes. All right gimme some teams. That you look at that you're gonna you know what people may not love them but I do and I think they can go deep. Well the first one is everybody's sexy 125 which already pulled first upset and that's which would relieve and an upset that middle Tennessee I think they can certainly win another game. Tomorrow against Butler an advanced as we succeed that is that'd be legitimate team that last year beat Michigan State the first round sort of shocked the world out shocking anybody. This time around on he would the other game the game that I love tomorrow which entry the hell out of me is that for five game in the midwest is Iowa State Purdue. I've watched both of those teams a lot. I can make the case for both of those teams going to the final four whoever wins that game is going to be a matchup for Kansas going to be terrific second round for a sweet sixteen matchup. But I can't figure it out this is visited Purdue it. I know both teams are real well you're not gonna get more. I'd disparate skills that Purdue with all the sides and swung again as a player of the year candidate and that I would stay it would force seniors who lost shoot lights out from three in just bombs away bombs away so that that to me the most intriguing game tomorrow. You know Virginia has been a team that's had so much talent over the last few years a one point even getting to number one this year just a five seat but still outside talent. They just squeak by and they win 767. You want against. UNC Wilmington what is it about them. That they're just at tournament tested. Yeah you will see how tested they are in the next round I just I don't see I don't see him get by Florida they just don't have the offense. I mean great defensive team. And you know great defense can we knew game and and I just don't think they do when you are. That offensively challenged as Virginia still is I just don't see how you go deep in the tournament with all these teams you know when you got the Villanueva of the world and maybe at Baylor to these teams that you're duke they can you put up ninety -- reports we've seen a couple teams put a hundred today. Virginia just kept to play with those teams and and I just don't see them lasting Maryland. Well it's all about the final four and then your championship and who wins it all in Glendale Arizona. The take sorority and my friend who BM in the final four who he had in the championship game and duty Evelyn. Well I've sort of already alluded to it Marty kind of spoil that but I got duke when an old saying my final four is. A duke Carolina didn't jacket and little really liked this little team of active better offensively than people realize always great defensively so. That's my final four which pretty much ensures that your actual final four will be Villanova or again. UCLA and you know Arizona somebody else but in fact. Well I had I appreciate you stopping by on Saint Patrick's Day now he'll crack some Beers and enjoy the rest of the night. As long as they're green Beers somewhere deployment takes everybody. Aren't getting it.
