Give that again dummy one yet you know the do I even need gaffes. You got got that we got get back what about northwestern Vanderbilt the 89 match up on picking northwestern. Yeah with the report also Notre Dame in Princeton the 512. Like the pick prison but I can't notre Dame's gonna win that one. Yeah I agree I was socket on the selection Sunday got northwestern you got prints that you got Notre Dame a lot of Smart schools. And then you run into Bob Huggins. You know what enough of your anti Bob Huggins and I enjoyed it few like Notre Dame and now one. I I've gotten uttered at all that West Virginia but now I'm picking the mountaineers and Bob Huggins. Have taken them to back. I've got let me well here's an interest in one Xavier which it. Hasn't played all well. Play. And Marilyn. Lotta people if they can. That Xavier is gonna catch fire again on Beckham Marilyn in March 3 and what about you Colby. I'm a big bigger and not expect Europe I think a lot of people are jab Maryland guards they're really good and I'm taken Merrill. That's primarily what you know about our marriage and always used to say when we guard or really get if I have to explain that it takes away some of those though there was nothing to take away it stunk it was getting. Florida State Florida Gulf Coast. This is the 314 and I've I think Jay bell since picking Gulf Coast here. Coached by former KU assistant Joseph Dooley I'm gone with the seminoles Jeff. Floor to stay Colby. For the fate Saint Mary's and VCU of the 710 I've got Saint Mary's. As do lie. You got VCU Colby. I've got beat you Arizona and North Dakota the two do we even need to waste any time loser sweet sixteen. Out of the last goal we. Object aired there and yet there are at stake here Notre Dame and the fact I've got Gonzaga West Virginia. Florida State and Arizona Jenna and zag at Notre Dame Florida State Arizona. Sides so you you are kinda off off the table learn a little bit with your picks holding Xavier and I see about that let's go to the midwest. Kansas the number one seed they'll certainly get by the winner of north Carolina central UC Davis what about Miami and Michigan State and that 89. I'm picking reluctantly the spartans of Michigan State. Megan Miami. I'm Brit gap could be your eighth well Iowa State Nevada summer saying that Nevada. Wolf wolf pull off this upset over the big twelve tournament champions I don't think so I've got Iowa State. I've got I would fatal. Iowa State's Purdue Vermont. Could Vermont. Make it happen I think there's a chance although I don't think there's a good enough chance for me to pick him I've got Purdue. I'm Deng and Vermont and now bogon drilling yeah I am. The cat about sue. Creighton the sixth seed Rhode Island at eleven I think this is the whale to game on picking the blue jays what about you Colby. Outdoor on this book hi it's Jeff Rhode Island. Let's just read absolutely remembering it is well I think that if you won't get any of these ridiculous fix ride. Oregon and I own or again please the three in the fourteen or again. Organ. Michigan Oklahoma State I'm looking for to watch in this game in Indianapolis on Friday I think it's one of the best first round matchups in the whole tournament. I've got Oklahoma State beating the wolverines holding. Yeah I'm with ya gonna go big 12 o'clock space cowboy is. Don't do that it's it's highly irritating. It's good listeners don't appreciate speaking of the listen I was about to do my. Cody Webster impressed Colby Eli hit. I but you got bigger with your powerball but the key you speak like the other way next Louisville and Jacksonville State I think we're all gonna pick the cardinals. So my sweet sixteen coming out of the midwest Kansas. Iowa State Oregon Louisville named. I would say yup I'm a ball would go for the state to overtake your view about local to say it's going to be blue oval. Outdoor sport I don't know it's gonna happen I'll bet you'll car does that affect I doubt upon the public got saw authority but I want my car. Vs the best car you have. Finally the south the region and this looms near and dear instances where Wichita State and Kansas State resides. North Carolina the one seed will certainly get past Texas southern and I know we all agree on that one Arkansas the eighth seed Seton Hall at nine. I'm pick in Arkansas what about you guys I shall as well. I don't know how are thought Brett Ferrer beat these are slowly got to the final but the did not play well in the final that's for sure. Us policy Minnesota. The five middle Tennessee the 12 I am going with the twelve here like middle Tennessee to beat the gophers coldly. I'll go to third on that topic pyramid David's. And Middle Tennessee State. Again. Dumb. Fun it looks trying to let's try to at least feign some intelligent why does it it would be a surprise to people. Butler and went through four vs thirteen. I like Butler. I'll take Butler I. Cincinnati gets the winner of tonight's first four game between Kansas State play for us. I like I like this game a lot but I think Cincinnati Wednesday morning nine and four. I meant to take Cincinnati is well. Wildcard pick like sports how about that what do you like about those who wait for us. You gotta go but down the old yet. Beliefs are honest will definitely made some month I would you call had a great reason for UCLA can't stay. No way ride that UCLA is moving on we all agree there. Yes I'll go our but you all we're all gonna pick Wichita State over Dayton is alone Malia. And Kentucky over northern Kentucky so that gets us to the sweet sixteen. Where I've got to make it difficult this decision here. I've got North Carolina. Middle Tennessee. UCLA. And I can't quite get over the hump and put the soccer's. I'm gonna pick Kentucky but I would not at all be surprised if Wichita State wins Jeff. Name same exact four that's my four really doubt I will be middle Tennessee. Miguel. I'll say LA thought where is north airlock you're really trying to score points with the with symptoms aren't too. I sure am I don't blame him hey it's great talk on what you'll get to within next week it'll pick the sweet sixteen. I doubt your ball they are at that's Colby Hudson from a gamut Nissan. Always good to catch up with him well you of course we make our football picks for weeks and weeks and weeks and we got to be fun to bring him back and makes them. Basketball picks and as well I gotta be honest with I don't think he's any better basketball is football or do you feel good about your own what I think right there is a winning started to scare me that we have the same sweet sixteen on the right half of the bracket. Have that bad bothers me ability India what I picked there is a winning bracket. I firmly believe it I think that's going to be I think that's gonna stand. I'll have to make some changes to mine 8691240. We got a few minutes left as I said we're leaving the air tonight at 530. In lieu of the first four in the NCAA tournament. I believe tonight have you looked us up because I've which gave up first. I think this sixteen why don't you know this but there's 216 games right one tonight I don't know. It amounts primaries in New Orleans play tonight at 6 o'clock. Right here on KFA and the greatest player ever to come out of the University of New Orleans. I don't know. Is there anybody. But again I'm giving you that stare down name because. For about an hour I acted that you were pretty good today thank you did yes some decent questions of of Tom gamble a gray waters. You can in fact if you dug a little more you probably get it could have gotten him to tell exactly and I went over us right there and I don't blame Jack but I thought we had a moment. Where we could sneak in and get some information on the legal battle become an out soon enough here's Daniel 8691240. The I got a bad locker room hotline Danielle. And Adam. One. Comment Don and that she didn't situation from yesterday's show. What they call it and cut. When you look at that she didn't picture and that kind of man. He's seen it but her actual election America 18 and may hate you see. Any point oh back. No matter they need for a possible story line. You know can learn you'll Kindle you know that the view matchup. That we got you know a couple years ago you look at. Kentucky matchup but yet it has. You know this year and it's just. Trying to make an. Destroy you get a said that about any of the matchups won't let a number of these games on their own create headlines this is the NCAA tournament. That's going to wish I had curry are not saying I disagree with so where are the headlines. That's an matchups in the story the nerves. Here's why see the headlines okay I see a headline and Creighton organ. Potentially because Dave Altman coached there. I see a big time headlines. In. Wichita State Kentucky because of the classic game they played. Four years ago in the NCAA tournament. I CA. Ice I guess I see a pretty decent headline in the potential of SMU Baylor. Because of SMU's strain then and their desire at some point to get into the big twelve. I see a great headline in Gonzaga northwestern but like I would see that. No matter where or who northwestern was playing because it's our first time in the tournament. And I guess I see a good headline in Saint Mary's Arizona. But would release no. A geek I don't know what the good the selection committee and I think is out there create headlines I think when it happens then you can point like wouldn't trade nor again. Happens you could say see they're go for the match up. I don't think so. Because there's so many aware why why would Butler be playing Minnesota there's no reason for that so. Deciding we just take Cincinnati UCLA has a good headline for me because Cincinnati and you see a layer to the most. Dominant programs of the sixties. So yeah out that that one has a an interesting headlines for an old guy like me share that I don't know or are you with us Daniel. You can say I. I when you look at the op you met aid. It's better across the entire bracket. Just being bought and exceeding its eclectic create situations. In light. You're OK you don't get you like Kentucky Derby at. Here is KU Michigan State a big headline now they play every year feels like they play all the time. Is K you potentially Iowa State gagged I guess that's the that's a good headline not abide I think I disagree with third your premise Daniel but I can understand why you feel the way you do. Thank thank you Dolly needed. Validation he's good does not how I need to be more. Eager Rollins and I did it. What I used to I usually just stop it you're well and that's okay. And I don't follow through if but you know what it's you're you're you're entitled to have your opinion you can find storyline in all of these games there and it says it's not difficult that's why we know you find story lines in the games. But Indian necessarily. Find story lines always in the matchup home. I hope thinks though. Sometimes you do. Sometimes the matchup is the major story line. For instance. If Creighton players organ. You know what the story line right we don't have Daniel Allman left Creighton to twelve years ago but it's still storyline. Alone but it's. In the mean anything now really North Carolina Arkansas is Sarah is does not match up create a story line. Now. Now not on the surface not for me. Wake Forest case state does that create any Manning against Kansas there you go here and Steve what Verron all the K you guys that are. Although Wake Forest coaching staff that's just luck of the draw that's a two teams that were the last to win basically. Playing against each other two of the last four in. And maybe it's more attractive that he had Danny Manning plays a Kansas team but I don't think it's like. And as someone who's covered. A lot of NCAA eternal months and instance constantly. Looking for story lines. I don't normally find them in the match ups. Chris you're on the show hello. Chris I apologize crystals start over please. OK to just how common is it sure would be nice yes. If Lori teens during the middle a year or throughout the year actually meant something and and I and I know they you know there. On. College bowl series they're they're trying to do something less the ranking and whatnot that it would just be nice that. Wichita State being ranked nineteenth actually met some pain at. Well let me let me throw this out are you and while I also understand your point of view I will say this about rankings. They are done by people who don't watch nearly as many games as folks on the selection committee. And I are completely understand Meriden and agree here are Americans paying the debt. I think it somehow whether points system horror or what people are merited it does mean something that. Monday night when we tune in you know the ranking actually means something instead of us what you know and I know that's my. It would it would be nice there. You know 125. Is it is what it is. At the end of the year and and you know there were only big screen what's. For church two point six or 68 as far as the CD. Thanks Chris we appreciate the call we need to take a break we'll wrap up this Tuesday edition of the drive when we return.
