Right here on WG thanks a lot for joining me I am so out of -- you this is sports talks one hour in the books two hours ago. And a whole heck of a lot more to get to it first and foremost we have college basketball to talk about it is the elite 8 March Madness. The NCAA tournament and. Syracuse tonight taking on Ohio State and that he will be heard on. WB yet our sister station 930 news -- to be -- and that will be at 6:33 game 7 o'clock tips and -- tip. Of course we'll have sabres game here 7 o'clock and WGR so a whole lot going on here at the end and an account and wired tonight. But you know you look at this elite eight. You look at this -- and it's just an absolute who's to a big name schools and college basketball. Syracuse Ohio State Kentucky. North Carolina Kansas Louis. Florida. They got -- and there of course but you take a look at all the teams that advance on the elite eight. And four of them -- Have won a national title. In the last nine years. There are some serious college basketball tradition about to be played tonight. And into tomorrow for the right to go to the final four north. And of course here in Western New York. A lot of large rooting going on and we welcome in the voice of the orange. Matt -- hey Matt thanks for joining us and heavy GR. -- -- you know you're probably someone -- closer to that team looking from the outside in many -- not actually on the inside. The first question I wanna ask you is about this team and everything they've been through. How the world has this team stayed as focused. As they have -- one as they have throughout this year despite every single thing that has come their way off the court. Well I'd just sit there have a remarkable lot of resilience and the ability to turn a lot of that -- off if you. Really look at it. I don't know a lot of it but that difficult to do it -- it it anyways don't concern but you know. I don't know that all the players on the eve of the future relationship with -- Woodbury -- the rated recruit virtually anybody on the team. Does -- to go they respected over the world around them. Certainly don't -- Impact on the program but what about -- it. They dealt -- -- -- it does or all of them. A lot of those double B Yahoo! -- report doesn't bother anybody on the currency. Music fab Melo is the ball and they've got an apple or the red that'll walk to and others that they've been able through. Treated at an injury and you know also cried about it or letting it impact you a great deal. Moved ought to have their real it's about adequately focus on the game with the -- and at -- practiced they've been. Getting better -- -- political leverage council are. Talk when Matt park voice of the org you can hear the game tonight on our sister station. 930 WB yet of course the first -- -- Louisville Florida and that it will be Syracuse taking on. Ohio State on that point you know one thing I've always want to ask. Jim they high aim at I had the chance to this year at a press conference but haven't maybe even give me some insight on this is. What is the coach ability of this team as appear as opposed to years past because of -- he's had. Less talented teams and he said mortality -- this isn't the most out team he's ever had but. From the outside looking -- -- it seems like it's just a very coach double group is it. I think a lot of that the auction of ballot that leadership on the game and how good are your senior well respected our seniors by the other players. I think he would give them fairly high marks or coach abilities certainly groups are being the waiters are guys that Hulu. The growing pains of play at this level it looked like Michael Carter lawyer who would be playing. For just about anybody else in the country -- that -- well as partners the double the American stop playing. George spoke quite a bit yesterday about the calculators. -- all saw what we all know that that Dexter is losses could be tonight. Could be his final gala and an orange uniform a lot of big surprise anybody that. India it would be after -- it would have interest and it. The government there's a perception. That he and they don't law and that's not true -- -- bit. Being at about thirty minutes again he's. And that. Just a competitor so they've gone back and forth a little bit it. Coach but it was giving the -- in Italy it better now. Respect -- coach under Kennedy's try to do it takes the way. The web is disappointment though like I've ever. It spread to the rest the body language. That. Doctor well. Since they lost fab Melo in this tournament really it's been three games in three different players. Have stepped up and play the unsung hero world James Sutherland in that it was -- Christmas and then last game I thought by most acute as the guy that really stepped up. Given some very good minutes especially on the glass that were. Kind of unexpected what kind of role have those guys had to take out and how they reacted obviously been positive so far. Well -- but -- -- they've got to do a little bit more -- you look at almost typically. It would be respectable 200 at that certain better weather but without them. It was a presence -- -- -- the potential of the box score but what the result of the box score. Government audits that quite extreme about the and it. Well everybody -- -- a little bit you get the 76 pretty quickly and that's what they've done. But we're executing a little place you -- appearance politically strong. These -- the athletic probably but he you know while you're leaving rather -- that. That's opportunity you know. Because that is. Size -- -- -- -- the court eager to court to bet that but it Olympic and that's funny because dirt on her such a doctorate there. I think by got to beat. Go. Get that second and develop a loose ball and didn't know what that could be struck the ball. The answer -- that they are able to. To -- the possession. I think they like -- It. Let's talk about how -- is familiar with what we're gonna see for the Buckeyes three games. Three drastically different styles really that Syracuse have seen has seen starting with UNC Asheville who is a little bit more balance in like to push the tempo. Can't steal more physical -- Wisconsin which is so deliberate what will we see out of Ohio State what kind of team we look at what we watch Syracuse tonight. It comes to the stock elderly would be. They're they're. The Olympic it would probably be -- That they hold the answer in terms of the argument deliberately. Swap it like it was -- I don't look they'll run it got hit zero. That break point and -- -- deals to. Ohio State that it -- Alter that thought that it's possible that. That's going to be in court that -- -- is -- The press that the fact that guard in the country that it big factory that. But it went in opposite Syracuse right ankle. -- you -- pictures and later all over the broker Bernard is -- -- it. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I'd like her retreat Christmas. Her. Electric and look at what all the other smaller but all. The -- that is the problem. Really what is done is this policy six other. I athletic oh lord put -- street he drives. It is simply video leading scorer but -- is our point. Is that Estrada. The circuit sort of sure. And -- soldier of course and I say this and a very affectionate way has that big dairy air under there it's really tough to move that's going to be a big key for them tonight right. No question he's got to be abroad and her -- that's. Around -- It'll Syria. Coach in he can't do stated it in for the game. We run our stuff we're gonna get quality -- government say that again. Virtually every opponent -- if they've played it and besides this could be broken which are gonna have that problem move. I'll answer whether that. Perhaps they are out there yeah regular but the rebound against them but -- it's going to be tough soldiers on or before career double double. It is our call it actually. Before I let you go -- did you thoughts on the other games are quick the first game tonight. Is Louisville against Florida another big east team Louisville had a taking the mantle what UConn was doing last year they had that. Nice run through the big east tournament they -- for four days now all of a sudden they're making a run through the NCAA tournament your thought on that game and then. The other two games Carolina Kansas Kentucky Baylor. -- Google's that it took the oral circuit -- to beat up. The big screen it will look a lot better than what -- beat them February. A lot of -- to him and pick up our broadcast. And in the post in circuit well or. Argument that there will be user that. Like it or go state. So lovely and circuit -- target but it got -- that would have to let it -- Intricate separate. Agreed it would be particular dominant storyline as well chronicled. And -- -- can -- about it of the country that there aren't going to be. The national championship. Picture of her nose is just screen -- would you injury. All right Matt enjoy it tonight we'll have a here on. Our sister station WBE and enjoy -- the the ears of Orange nation will be upon you tonight as Syracuse marches towards the final format park thanks for joining us. All right no problem that is -- our voice of the orange tonight -- team is in Boston now for those of you are you know. College basketball fans who know your history or if yours your keys torturing you know that there's so many parallels right now between the 2003 season. So many parallels and one of them obviously being that the games to get to New Orleans upgraded to rally started in Boston in 03 and they went to Albany. This year they started in Pittsburgh and they went to Boston. In the sweet 1603 they beat a team by one point Auburn. In the sweet sixteen this year they be a team that one point Wisconsin. Guess where the final four is this year it's in New Orleans. Guess with a final four was in 2003 New Orleans so. Last year -- sort bands out there. Hoping history repeats itself in many ways of course obviously the similarities -- a couple of years ago. In 2010 when they had a terrific basketball team and they lost their salary before the tournament currency on a lot Cooper -- reasons he had a well what they're calling -- quadriceps injury but. Appear to be more of any injury that we were never confirmed the knee injury. And this year of course they lose their starting center fab -- but the difference that this team is they're much more equipped to be without their starting center and the team two years ago. They have working Christmas. They have by -- -- They can afford ten more fouls from guys that actually have some game especially Christmas you can go in their play who would start on many teams in this country. 2010 they just didn't have that. Should be a terrific game tonight Ohio State is a very very good basketball team very well balanced -- defense. The play offense they can't run although they haven't been running as much lately they're playing more half court set. -- soldier can be very tough for years is can contained on the low block. And that's going to be key matchup tonight of course will be right here and WB yet I should take over around and be on our sister station pregame at 630. Sabres pregame 6 o'clock here on WGR. Sabres. Tonight on WGR all the action right here we will have it for you as always. Okay. Gotta talk a little Buffalo Bills football and -- -- to talk to -- this guy might top the -- but before that happens. Big big news in the NFL this week Tim Tebow going to. The New York Jets. -- have some thoughts on that but I also wanna bring up this the bill should actually had. A really under the radar signing this offseason and under the radar signing it's gonna affect the entire AFC east. No talking about it but it may be. The one out a tiger Mario Williams the most critical signing -- a bad. Since the season ending and it. A play about that more south of Roger -- -- sports -- Saturday.
