We will have Clemson baseball for you tonight. Clemson anxious to get back out on the diamond to erase the taste of that three game sweep over the weekend at NC state Oakley coastal Carolina. Actually in early games at 5:30 years time 6 o'clock first pitch. This evening for the Clemson Tigers so off scourge have a shorter showed today however have show before Clemson baseball. Are you can get and what does an 8444773776. Text line always open at 71307. And you can reach us on Twitter here in the huddle at ESPN upstate. Started college basketball we have the odds for sweet sixteen games. Does start on Thursday. And after Clemson just absolutely destroyed. All Auburn. By 31 points Sunday night. In San Diego. They're probably. A darling team here in the sweet sixteen I mean they're. If if you get the receding of those sixteen teams talked about that a little bit yesterday Thompson's up high there. And I think they closed the gap on Kansas their underdog nothing they closed the gap because of the performance. Against Auburn keep them on the jayhawks are a number one seed and they go into this game as just a four point favorite. Over the Clemson Tigers. We know about that four point favorite role one seed over the Clemson Tigers and shows you that Clemson is turned some heads so far in this tournament Josh. Yeah they really have and I think it's the way they've. You know perception. Only it's reality sometimes but it's a foreshadow wing of the way people are good things down the rule. Meaning. You know for team in the term starts now live. An unexpected win and then blow out a lot of people around the country. Bought New Mexico State it was going to be eclipsed a lot of people picked that. Day there was no respect for the tigers. Come into this tournament. And so then when you get that to back it kind of changes the narrative a little bit and in the blow out over the co champion. Of the SEC. In such dominating fashion going in to. The game with Kansas though. That this is there in my estimation there watershed moment. Of the tournament that every team that wants to go to the final four has to go through. And I think this is that moment. For clips and all on obviously making the sweet sixteen. And get a couple Bruce Weber had a great quote when he said there's two great accomplishments in the term. The sweet sixteen in the far off for everything else really that big a deal but it you make those two things that's a big deal. And I agree with him and that estimation to make slide of those you know first and Sager around but there's just something to. Getting through the first week in and then getting through this weekend. To get to the elite eight this congress stages of the tournament. And then what can do with Kansas right after as the number one seed South Carolina had to do you think that was their watershed moment when they had to beat duke. Here at home because let's be honest this going to be a home game for Kansas. I mean they're playing literally in the backyard of the jayhawks. It's going to be nine pot ninety to 95%. Of a Kansas crowd it's going to be rock is this going to be a true. Road game will be neutral game like the other two. And we're gonna find out the medal of Clinton in this game not only against the environment. BO but also where. Kansas because Bill Self is kind of reinvented himself. Brad Brownell. You know. In Kansas jail teams they were big currently being in the dominated the glass well this isn't that team. Not that they're not big I mean they've got slumps as but he usually more of a four guard lineup. With one big man they're giving up some rebounds in order digit scorers out in transition. And that's something that Clinton is not used to seeing. Because in the ACC they don't well. Most of the teams outside of North Carolina North Carolina hours to get an up tempo game. But other than that everybody is half court offense. And now they're gonna face a different animal in Kansas and that the key for Clinton is they're gonna have to get exceptional wing play. Out of Devoe in the Mitchell and they're gonna have to break down the penetration. And get kicked and knocked down threes in order to stay in this game. Bill Self Kansas coach said this about Clinton's win overall Bernice and that was probably as impressive a performance as anyone has had in the tournament so far. And he's had there been some great performances he said they dominated Auburn in every area perimeter play speed rebounding and in the plane. Watching them was like watching a clinic. We'll have a good book on them in the next 24 hours or so much Bill Self while. They Kansas coach as they prepare for a Clinton and I'm 37 on Friday night so four point. Underdogs will be the tigers going in to that game other Vegas. Odds this weekend. No bottles of two point favorite over Chicago loyal law. Michigan a three point favorite over Texas say NM. Kentucky is a six point favorite over Kansas State. And zag or five points. Over Florida State Villanova five points over West Virginia. Duke eleven and a half points over Syracuse. And Purdue. One and a half against Texas Tech. Those are the odds there so the only big favorite double digit favorite as duke and at Syracuse game and that's certainly teams are familiar with from the from the ACC. So some interesting stuff going in this weekend. Among other college basketball. News. To talk about us we start off the show today trade young no surprise is leaving Oklahoma. He will enter the NBA draft he told ESPN. That today than announced that on Twitter he's nineteen years old. First team all American for those sooners. People compare him to Stephon curry.

And if he gets into the right system where he's got some guys that take pressure off of him. He struggled against bigger. Bigger perimeter players. And I think we'll have a good career.

Back in a moment in the huddle on ESP in upstate. Quarterback in the huddle ESPN upstate GMAC coach Josh Phillips love though out this week 8444773776. You wanna get among us the text line. Is 71307. Please use the keyword ESP end to start your text message. Pro today in Colombia today at South Carolina. And Bill Belichick is there. The New England Patriots. Head coach any held private meetings with two gamecocks. Wouldn't let him home field. Hear what an outlet that loser yet he's he's a loser goal. I would not let that loser on the field. Questions if you're in Hurst you probably don't mind seeing. Bill Belichick wander up Doug Peterson he's well. Peyton Hearst and sky more met with Bill Belichick those meanings were actually yesterday. And then he watched him work out. Today. Hayden Hersh. In the options. Williams get drunk and of course drops Colin are going to be around much longer and USA to be the number one tied in before. Right that I would be big state yeah the patriots have the 31 overall pick. Kind of makes its rate nurse Writely for Trent it goes. Pair him up with gronkowski. And then when Graf retires in the next year to peck I mean who knows he's been making noises about it. And they nursed. Would be there hey nurse said. Belichick just normal football coach. He said that yet to rule whether he just talks football. Have personal walked in I was like that's the guy I see on TV it's. A bit by you get used to it after a lot. A bella checked and Hurst met at the combined to an Indianapolis. And I Hearst describe Belichick is a pretty quiet guy Scott Moore also met with Belichick at the combined and he spent. An hour with him yesterday in Columbia. And they were looking at film from last year's clinching game. How would prefer that you know look at me against clubs in the way those games and mingle right. Community games to release at Tennessee. Depends on how you individually played. Yeah I don't I mean I'm sure that Scott Moore was. Was good he was solid all year about Scott Moore to the patriots winning and I like. I like it would be bad I think is but I mean he missed over a year yeah a football so I think he's got a lot of development left. To go with the pro level they can bring him along and they definitely need linebackers and their margins. That's very cool that military losing Colombia for the pro day today and now we'll see if if they make a run at either or both of those two guys sky more and I paid Hearst. In New England but down their worst places you can go. The most to gain cock player's ego bad news out of Columbia today. How Will Muschamp updated some injuries and he said Rand re just Davis. Wide receiver sophomore richer sophomore. Is probably gonna miss the rest of spring. And he got fluid drained from his growing. Some things and only more I think about. I know what it is that bad deeds will your main east for its UP. Yeah. It's not first Tommy's had that persist described as a minor procedure. But he said issues throughout his career must champ says he'll probably miss the rest of spring but he should be fine. He's dealt with that off and on during his time here he said probably won't we've just putting for the rest of spring. So Davis he had Davis just seems to be Madden beat her all the time then. All the time I'm Brian Edwards junior wide receiver certainly want the playmakers for the gamecocks has been a shoulder problem. And so he's banged up and Rico doubtful. The running back. Has a hamstring. Nothing too serious. They're buddies lol Matt banged up. Of course they're holding out some other guys are holding them back in the spring like Bryce now Williams a linebacker Andy those Samuel the wide receiver. And safety Jay Lynn Dickerson they've been limited. There'll practice number six out of fifteen. In Colombia for spring they just as spring break. They're gonna have their first scrimmage on Saturday. Now in Columbia. The seems like a lot of spring injuries for South Carolina but I guess that's not any more than usual you have a bunch every spring notre. Yeah its atomic teams really try to establish a physical reality because you've got all summer to heal and that's way. Coaches can think of it so that there's some practices built in there that you don't you wanna get after each other in and sharpen your blades so. If you're gonna have some. Dixon don't some beings and all that good stuff. Going on the springtime but they'll get over and I mean those are the bulls are injuries that aren't in threatening four. For the fall. Dale let's hope not in the soap all those guys heal up and play a time. You just you don't wanna get in the knees and ankles and ham strings because those things seem to linger. For long periods of time. Now Michigan as part of the ways with the former director of performance. After he was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving this is latest what the problem for Jim Harbaugh in Michigan. Kind of scared me there on that last introduction he thought there would be when you are all will know when you show though that some other bad news out of Columbia oh with all that speculation that coach Morton could go to UConn. It actually. Don't believe that you know you comes adult. A it is for the men's team it is. It is that think about it store Connecticut in and of itself is a bill to begin with. So the community aside. You're always going to be second fiddle to the women's team always. And then the other thing is UConn made a serious mistake. When they left the big east. Instead of going to the ACC are probably the Big Ten would have made more cnet's. Going to the what is de AC NN league has totally let the men's team. Out to dry they they don't know what they the kids that they usually could recruit. Out of DC in Hartford and all of those areas. They don't wanna go there and they don't want to play in that conference. So when Jimmy Calhoun was there he could go anywhere and say oh. The big east he gets though playing in Madison Square Garden he could sell all of those things. They came and he did anyone a couple of national titles will now the Uga when people hear UConn that they think of and it's far removed Kelly Kevin Ollie. Analysts say that he got railroaded but a lot of issues that he had. It was really outside of his control and they're not gonna go with whoever they hire. I mean those issues are going to be this way. I just don't know any other any other way to put. I think dig out from Rhode Island Hurley I think he's a skeptic and you punch and probably will and that's fine. Frank Martin kind of threw cold water on an all London and yeah I don't think he's out of not mean he's. Think about it he's I think the fifteenth highest paid coach. In college basketball. He's got hackable ballclub. Coming in assuming the guys that are there there. Come October with Bowen and Felder and Silva. I mean that's a dot that three right there is gonna put him in the top three and the media predictions alone so. I think so though the picked picked up three after they were picked eleventh this year. Yeah because they just didn't have any players players and he and I saw me grab it like and I mean it's like frank said when he haven't jump on a fourth year senior. From making mistakes like a freshman that's a problem. And that's what they had to deal what will now you're gonna have actual freshman. That are super talented. And filter has was on the team made the run in the final four so he's gonna provide leadership in a position they much needed. At that gore position that you've got to swing guy if you're that's one thing that I saw current term of the last couple years. Is that if you've got a point guard a swing guy and got down low to protect the room you can win a lot of ball games. Only makes me a little nervous is that we don't have word yet Brian Boeing employee this year that's that's the kicker. He's the X-Factor. No question they got to have him yes they do. And the last update our call was it's been about a month it was in February when. Frank Martin said there is progress toward getting him eligible but no resolution yet has not been cleared to play. So. They've got to have that. And get him on the court they've got to do that we'll say. They do that yeah I feel like you that cola certainly. Take some big steps this coming year. Buying Colombia as they needed it. I UN official story of this point to their. Michigan has parting company with the director of performance Fergus Connelly because he was arrested for. Suspicion of drunken driving. I game in and 2017 took over the director of operations duties following the 20s17. Season he worked with Jim Harbaugh. But the 49ers in the NFL. But was arrested in early march police responded to hit and run accident with a parked car. Don't wanna hit a parked car. And he was arrested. Shortly before noon on Monday. March 5 so he's out there at Michigan enough. And Harbaugh have to get a new. Guy for that job are you a chance to win 1000 dollars of the free cash dash that's coming up and about fifteen minutes we'll have a keyword for you back in a moment wrapping up our number one here in the huddle on ESP in upstate stay with us. Clubs and coastal Carolina baseball 530 air time this afternoon on ESPN. Uh huh upstate of course we'll get to the sweet sixteen on a Thursday. And we have live coverage for you here. On ESPN upstate all weekend long we'll kind of mix and match with the basketball Lang climb since baseball series with more of all this weekend so what tons of college basketball for your. Starting on Thursday here. From all Leo big news of the sweet sixteen Clinton clinching game against Kansas from Omaha fraud or not that's 707. Tip off. The duke Syracuse game tips at 937 if they stay on schedule and coming up later in the show in the next hour. We will hear from coach Mike should shift key of the duke. Blue Devils sort of stand by for that. All right you guys give me your answer to this Patrick you can jump and mr. Nick Saban and Alabama. Over under five more years. More or less than five more years for Nick Saban coached under I was gonna Xanadu. I agree under all firebombed and on Twitter poll that today. And about two thirds say less than five years. 34% say more 66%. Say less than Bobby 66. Years old so five years put in his seventy. OC Saban being that Bobby Bowden got a guy that is does this forever unions. What does he got to prove. No he just wants to compete. I wouldn't be shocked if it was just like. Three more years. You know when you. You know I would be shocked it was like after his next national championship. If he wins one more I think he's done. Quit immediately. It's not like he wins the title on the podium aren't out now by guys it's going to be more of like. I it I've done enough in college football. That I kinda needed to step away but what about these already done enough has not already done. I mean. Jury throwing. I think it was a league no doubt and everyone's mind he is the greatest college football coach of all time. Never happened he's chasing a ghost. Why is it gets. But because it as it's Conroy bella it's going to Belichick Lombardi. Debate. Belichick will never supersede Lombardi he could win consumables. It's the same thing with. Nick Saban trying to catch Bear Bryant this thing meant yes. He can win toy national titles he'll never supersede Bayer and some people's minds. But I mean. Reality if you look at it objectively he won't know. Would to me. Know the reason be it is. It and I guess you have to isolate. What are you looking at just deal on field performance or are you looking. The impact that he's had. In this time as the head coach. And the impact that he made. In the state of Alabama. Because the reason being is not only did Bear Bryant when those six national titles. He was he wasn't just the catalyst. He was the main force. Of bringing immigration to the south in football. It was because of detail. So his range. Went far beyond the football field. He wasn't just an excellent coach he he did something that society. That no other coach will ever be able to touch. And I think in most people's minds that understand history and understand. And then went back to believe that 1970 game. Again southern can all. When he asked John Robinson. Which was a calculated move. On because he knew. The immigration had to happen. He had to happen. If he would actually taken a lot of heat for not getting involved. In the civil rights movement and using his platform. Was dealing with. To further the society ills that are going on during that time but he didn't feel that Tommy was right and he was correct. Any utilized the fact that here you had southern gal who at that time. Was the Alabama today. John Robinson. During the middle to late sixties was the Alabama today. And they had an integrated squad. And now he never said anything to John Robinson he says hey do you favor. Bring your team to Tuscaloosa and let's play. And they wiped the field with Alabama and he took the two running backs. That or black into the Alabama locker room with his arms around them instead boys these are your teammates anybody got a problem. Not a word was ahead. And as they say the rest is history Saban will never be able to get to that right now now armies different time and on the opportunity to do it is but it. Again the ups. There. Two if you're going to supplant the Bayer you have to be far more reaching than just the field now. Well as may argue that exactly. Now if he and today. If he was taking a stance on these situations. With these school shootings or something like that and trying to bring people together. In the very divided time national same style but that's not hear them. He wants to keep it like bella checked he wants to keep it all about. Football. And that's why no matter how many championships he wins he'll always be number two.
