There's always a correlation man can you continue draw the line with what the correlation is. Eight in NFL free agency which is if you either don't have a quality quarterback or you got one it's cheap and unproven. And that's why you have cap space to go at a bunch of dudes around them and that's just that's just the way it works.

It will be here a couple things about Ryan that people don't that's a point not for. Not a right weird. That a regular. Got you got responsibilities. That come about the second thing out bill and the great date field writer would. Yesterday it will it be a lot like you're. Olbermann you know. I said you know he gets his interest in basketball. From me. He gets his no well from his mother. David just made explained it well are you guys who go back to that final play. Or attack called timeout coach rippling. No time and time now if it didn't see it in me out article in time the want when he got that property keel on the other hand on when he got there at port at a crawl my way or both. It both interval both of what the withdrawal. And Ryan and that gear while ago a court yeah. Randolph Childress is in 1990 bat. And she shot that he wanted. Which he did. And he'd made the shot at that differences bit. I would try and erupting maybe orchestrate yet Ryan was quietly in control. Weighed in Malone. No time now. Just did his mother would and given him the right that make the right decision at the right the mother always make. Right decision to write that that's where Ryan is its ability to. This guy direct. That bet that the play its delegate in Bryant all need it in my pocket my. I love that they've the guy he knew the player was strip and forgive me for not knowing his name he dribbles the ball cross the timeline Kara why don't Gerris Lyles excuse me coach that thank you and dusty dregs of the growth that I want to notice. And Andy looks over to rye and it was just now were run in this to run in the set let's run this thing out and maniacs acute that thing. I to perfection and UN DC he's going to the NCAA turner we're talking to the gray Dave Odom he's with this right now. On the technical and guess I of course coach you couldn't have. An NCAA tournament without some sort of consternation in her people wringing their hands of who got in who got out. From you know did he get any issue with over all the way to the steel broke a 68 would you put somebody else in undertaken somebody out how did you feel about the job they did. Well in part of these aircraft because you know ammonium. Yeah yeah I had nothing to do. With the NCAA committee that having gone through that experience that hearted did you know I act act indeed it. You know I feel badly. Promoter saying. Is because of the injuries that they had and I was hopeful that the NCAA committee it's fine time to. By the way it's in the and they weren't able to do it. I felt badly for Oklahoma State. Michael or be it coach of all they played three years for me it's South Carolina. On you know and you know I think if you sit at the beginning here Michael your team's going to be and that's why they're going to be Oklahoma apply. They're going to be West Virginia in more than that you're going to be Texas Tech. Adequately. You're well aware that Michael I think you need it yet. Because he probably thought that but not to do it again it didn't turn out to be I told him that day at that look. And and I see it's a tournament is war. Playing it's worth winning and go to work and went in and hopefully he'll. Who have been. You know you feel YouTube battery Earl. Southern cal. I think secondly. You've got a little state is finished by. And you know that that kind of hard to. Swallow like yeah. But. They're having all through the weekend group that beat these people that didn't get it these are professional at the that have people who. Understand computers and numbers and statistics in. Be. I just how to do it and wearing those things came up. It the term to get those things and in turn in favor. And I guess that's my issue coach like I understand the conspiracy theories that go on but I got a huge issue with a guy like Dan Dockett who knows better. Getting on ESPN on Sunday night and accusing that committee of putting Oklahoma in because Trey young's on their team I mean that's it that that's. I mean that there's there's no place for an analyst saying something like that on on a network like ESPN because whatever you think about whether the field is right or wrong who should've gotten in Hershey should have gotten out. There's no way any these guys are are flatly putting Oklahoma in because Trey young plays for the sooners today that dike I can't get into that. I agree with pat the people on the war. Act of these guys after the game in the fairway the team the Horry. I think they take many liberties. And I really think some things they say they don't necessarily believe in and day say it just to spur conversation. There to beat. And probably ignited you know in Libya in the back to recover. Abuse in this chair right Euro area Cutler area because you're good in both the and now you rate for and that thing now and again. We don't.
