Do you. Among Greta that -- the major drug and and and so a bigger than McCain last week I've come a long time it right. Don't wanna you know. -- com yesterday to open. And you to write something so. We had a good opportunity yesterday. Yeah McCain became it was a big stepping up from the -- McCain last week it now from McCain to the Paper. Which preschool which is nice it was nice to see you I wasn't dumb I don't know what. Adding to it updating and blatantly to a Gerry wrote about bombing apparently there was to greet me with my coffee this morning that it made me feel good. -- banks and I build bridges -- figured out right but didn't somewhat exhausting. Right and in an emotional problem like you do forget that there that he could be emotionally and mentally tax. With the public remark that's our show -- shot -- I don't know what are you bet -- look at four hours -- -- the -- well anyway but and he's had with. Such an uplifting thing yesterday and I could again wrote I could feel -- I was but with. A lot of about a people who are well represented in the media and -- it was just you could just sort of certain facts are with. Kind of in the middle of that old that old scandal involved in writing about it you know the pain of those people went through so. It was it was quite an emotional thing netbook. It's it's certainly a lot of fans I mean it's as far as the administration and that the program itself visit. Are are there any people there are still around from that. All not not very they pick whenever but I can't think of any minor. Figures who were who were still there you know this Watson. And mark -- production now the president is different -- mobile me and that they consider the people who are jars and scoundrels. You know what they did it humiliated. -- university and a I mean -- the bank debt and told and so Lawrence's. Staggering due to -- -- now about that yeah uphill slog right. I mean is quite different so that felt I was probably responsible some that I wrote it was a very very Lionel we -- we -- I I was working with. Cabin then and on the morning show and we interviewed that that gentleman. It at the height of his scandal in and it wasn't that shortly there after that that you know but he he took his life and -- was -- nose buried at. Billionaire. Extremely far in that time. The minute they feel they've done on the right way that means a lot to them and the virtual world you know college sports whatever remains of it -- time. I'm not a doubt because best of them on our football but there's a lot of that with this sport to. But I see what happens with the big east getting open and and an -- to -- -- joke literally while I and -- bids and that essentially is what they do I -- the big wanna do it because schools -- games. And in that way you buy all gamecube by computer rankings and you buy your bidders for the current. Then -- nine of the Lebanon they'll make the sweet sixteen last year people or what what happened the big east. Not that good. They have the advantage is that there's no. They're not that much better than the other schools -- -- they have the money and they very were on the road and it's it. It's sickening indicative that you now what's happening to it. I haven't people tell me how great is that the big east New York City. And West Virginia had and certainly going to be big east what it used to being. And people argued that -- not really about the money I don't know what it's about but it's it's sickening -- and -- conference sports. -- is not. It is hard to -- -- or not wired -- so hard for the mid majors and small school in this earned him respect how wonderful it just to get into the Bonaventure people. We have always a school there and every year but it -- you know. Jerry how good is is this -- team. And also post thirty is this this success that they've had is it the situation where you might think. Like Baylor maybe a little bit that they make it back from a scandal and then stayed around for awhile or is Nicholson. Edward Nicholson so much a part of their success that when he leaves. May be they return to where they spent. I don't think they'll all the map -- and I have played you'll go back to start the year we have -- probably played well I'm a lot this year. -- clearly demented side player in the best player in the player that you're in the league. And you'll miss that I don't think we'll go back to being a 360 team. They got a pretty solid -- on out there they're expecting get more people in -- I don't know who raises the profile. You just wanna get 500 seem a little better create Adam and year. You're better off than you know in pieces and you buicks and senator -- I think when. Bottom good it's been more because there and seven the rest its best league and they get -- -- -- and your closer and closer to big. Fourteenth seeded -- and they're they're veteran -- and in -- -- got that I suspect it's because. The game late on Sunday and then it's up the committee to -- -- -- the difference spot. But they're not like a champion of the Mac -- and want it and fountain. So I I don't think Florida State like the -- more than -- us. How -- what can a team as Florida State you're viewed you have a lot on them. A third. Cannot drive quite there and beat in big bigger -- imports picked eleventh pick an upfront with deputy got Bernard and -- -- forward who. From some of the not stats and -- affable Al haven't faced all the I think content to go and -- might be the best offensive play in America about -- against Nichols and that could be quite match up. It's going to be tough for them. And that that's team can score but they're not pretty and that. That could make for a kind of an unsightly game. Could come down to the bottom and you can get open shots and hit them -- whether. Mickelson going out of all trouble but there are there are very tough opponent at a much rather seen them play we -- -- Port number three that person over the last twenty years and they generally and the the but that. Really good teams are major conferences. -- -- not suggesting this is just. Athletic team that can just come out yet they make you look real -- talking about Florida State now. Florida State yet I can tell you what the thing in the port in either I think win. -- the better one and a plea deal -- in nineteen years ago other speaker keepers will know what team. Like wild every nine guys in the lot of athletes like that there aren't you don't -- -- and -- to pretty good. And the barbecue at the Mac only been a star player that doesn't. The big guy and carpet and the rim and that young guys on the potential athletic and can can you know who would you be big guard. So there. Look at -- it's not like. -- -- nutritional often in the old days when they managed to get an end up all out I'm. Except I don't think Florida State that -- -- -- that they'd much rather see. Champion of one of these real low gate and again I I think people -- we think you all back temple. And they've won that league -- under the fourteenth seed they are embassy. I think to further that point -- have to do -- look at the the up points spread. Florida State is favored by six and a half that's a -- for 314 game that's very low. Yeah even even nowadays -- -- negative deftly caught up over the years old beat seven and -- -- and it looked favorite papers that they know. All of them work and that that line seems about right to me forget that probably played in the fifty. I mean how about that -- But a deadly terrorist just by -- by the line. And and by the way or another I don't know if it's a 314 report thirteen. Michigan Ohio -- to Michigan against Ohio the Mac winner that line is only six. Pretty threat but I don't think that mentions it's really nothing to support their. Or -- merit it well why you brought up your background before we've you don't change the subject on under the hockey and football. Well. The weekend approaching looking going back to Friday. You're like QB's chances that you would Bobbitt did when an accomplished aren't the only -- a when a semi final in the final hours wanted to play three games. It is to make it happen. But you be what what did you think it there if I'm assuming you from your -- got to watch them play on Friday night Jerry. Listen and I'm not I'm my chat Friday it said they had UB40 percent -- 35% bonnet on that they have a better shot. On right to the semis there's just too bad. They caught Obama really great shooting night and I think it's a joke they're not yet at periods and didn't do -- better -- Not another disappointment Reggie Witherspoon got a lot of these calls you have over the hump and it's likely that. I'd have to do that one out that they bought in the football program Mac. Well. I did not -- that call you know I'm not benefiting her complain about a guy get called Franken on the rim in the first half but they're dealing. It's that their for a long time I talk to be -- be people a lot of pride that they think the league and they've always welcomed them like the and even the Michigan team feels that it's oh -- I can't remember Latin autobiography that won. That tournament. And is somehow it never feels right for them and that week. Well I feel that way about the fantasy football again and without the big swing right now currently have liked spirited they were in the middle overrun. And -- got called for hanging on the rim mechanic to used the -- Lothian for example that's what happened. To Debbie talking about it. Well I just a healthy people I don't know what you're talking about economics and wanted to be -- candidate but. Player of the year in your -- a wonderful or acute come back from a disease that debilitated him. It's your sophomore year and you call for anger on the remembered something what it is that. That belief that -- allowed graduate former players Kent State from refereeing a game and QB. Mean and I'm I'm not the type to complain about appears that you're notebook cap mutual plot. Anyway. I don't opposite or he wrote about it and follow that hope that it must -- then it is terrible what. I may not like the big east and and I've picked him in the American -- -- I'm like doctor I think like. Cook off right well -- that -- -- -- -- Therefore those athletic pursuant to lot of question. I want you opened the door you get worked up now. It's just great I mean it's it's very -- I admit but it's great to have a team and it. It's it's not often we have a -- minute. -- big force school has one if you will if you'll allow a real NCAA tournament game since 1970. Mean we have Niagara winning a play in game since 1970 that's it. And the idea bottom making it like this someone unexpected. And heavenly game on Friday and even Thursday got a whole week of publicity out of it and automobile lot of it does it -- -- attorney has so much about. The in terms of their. Coverage. About the schools like Bana. That are not you know household names and there's a story there you know that the -- story. Is gonna be splashed all over the get a week out of that that's really great so. Here's hoping they win -- can prolong and yesterday right yesterday at a record for them right yeah clock CBS after legal deal mean that those flights that's right. Oh yeah you don't you don't speak and he just Manhattan out of 1 o'clock and that happened on -- they're they're they're determine and estimate. Is it wanted moment. Spotlight in 2.3 years. Offered to cover this up for that long. -- Bonaventure. Vs Kentucky. In the first game of the entire term -- 2000. Indicated -- free throws out I'm on the clock in overtime to force but won't seek court they lows. But I think a lot of bottom as the fact that moment maybe they can win one I think this thing is that in the 2000 feet. But this Florida State he might be more scary enough but keeping. What did you say the beginning that your your top moment covering sports here. And it in a sport where your column that okay. You I was sitting right here you I think -- you them but I was right on the road from you for that or -- -- there I was there I was there was Syracuse which at the next game that was. That was just open. I remember the bottom it to people that you know that. The writers for another two major major work Thomas went to school on the same time like a carrot -- your -- and -- and warns about schemes. Like Yahoo! and has written book. -- and that they're not. That they were there yesterday. There you know here's and I that's evident they were -- and in Cleveland beat people really care. I don't think I cared much about the Red Sox -- these people care about Vonage. Right. Saying a lot. Jerry -- with -- us by phone recuperating. Back well enough to talk. And right. We will take your calls and -- And Peyton Manning in the beginning of NFL free agency tomorrow will have extra. Local coverage tomorrow attend the noon. As free agency opens Joba -- Tim Graham from the stadium. And of course Jerry hockey tonight all the organizer at first Niagara center sabres in Canadians here and the phrase. Really you made. Made popular the heroic run. To eighth place again this year happening in continuing. It makes me up in the senate and I -- out. Turning points and that's right that's my doing the right. It's a very Euro got it right when you know that if you're going to be laid up immediately have a part in actually relevant. Well the teams that are battling for -- or more relevant in March and the teams that are at first -- seekers -- -- who cares who cares about. You know Vancouver. Right now this is more interest. As well. Washington played very innovative look pretty good. I raised amid an opinion -- wonder where I'm coming from like that I've -- -- more about watchdog here. Now to open -- got. Really I'm players in I think -- -- out to be the Florida although the. -- -- -- Okay calls for Jerry let's go out. I do that horrible I public a week Washington still going to work and I didn't second coached by July I don't know -- it went a couple of good Dave Baum implies. That they want in Boston especially. It was nice for them. But I know what I you know the look at -- look at it skipped it their -- -- Those three win three lose three wintry. Well I don't know Jerry's point exactly is the mind as they are better players and they are better players. There's no question about it players placed on other -- again that's your old. Right and I don't have an easy they say they've got. Well we've got the islanders but there at Winnipeg Friday and then there at Chicago Sunday it got out of a tricky road trip coming -- on -- normal schedule but that's the target for this week. -- make it but the sabres have enough games two against lower teams if you article Toronto was one. Which is debatable. -- -- with Toronto that get to with Montreal here in the next nine days Colorado here Minnesota here they have enough of these games that even as limited. As they are they should hang around I think. Even and -- found the -- but get a couple entry point cushion before that really rough stretch at the end. Mean they they get we -- again -- state and one of these other teams kind of falls I mean they. That could happen. -- -- their last true if you mean rough stretch at the end of his I'm thinking you mean their last two games at Philly at Boston. The last two games for that it's leafs leafs. I don't mean that -- I like I like to arrive like them all year but it's the tougher argument now. But they're gonna make it two to shut -- losses in a row. I like them because the goals were there. The one. Concern would abandon Ken castle and global who have never score like that especially global with they keep it up you know you needed to it to have that be right. The -- someone else is gonna come out of the woodwork and score a lot you needed those guys to keep with just -- crazy pace that they were setting in the top of the leak. In scoring in. You know we're gonna now to -- hurt in -- you know so. So it looks like they're done.
