Well this time a party we will party I. With the kids is. Getting rid of players that we will be. Did not perform to the level of their compensation. Clady doctor meaning mangled it was a little surprising Revis absolutely not surprising that they don't want that you don't want your locker room is bad financial chemistry. We've got guys saying I'm playing at a high level but I'm not make that kind of money that this judgment and that was the situation so they cleared the decks there where they go from here remains to be seen. Don't forget next year in draft is a good quarterback here shall we say. We did that that may be their. Re loading with the idea that this year may not be a terrific year record and 16 distinct thanking bill well I don't wanna say that analysts say that but we saw the browns doing. Would no repercussions by the way so who knows maybe it's an object about. It's hard for me to believe in New York. Because and the moves that made thus far have been justified without question and you believe the browns take issue that there's no question about it they set it they didn't care about the won loss record and seven there were no repercussions. Non WG ER Sports Radio 515 and I whether it's funny I was gonna bring up. He actually did never say the ground to its executives don't ever wanna use teamwork and you know former executive current executives right I mean. No one ever wants to say the word tank while the media will the fans will let my people inside the game never wanna use that word reload is what the edge the jets attacking him they're just. Well they are just. Urging their roster. And it's brilliant it really is brilliant for quick follow up to that baseball story about trips to the mound. Mean I trial theory out for you say them I just think there are other ways I can make game factor then. Say you only get the what the the one visited your more meager Jenkins pitcher but number one problem people have with sports taking too long number one is commercials right yes to many commercials but how we pay the rights fees number two. Timeouts. Think about basketball how many timeouts each team get like thirty ID act is and how many there are called others more than that well there is television my house is 32 time out regular like seven in addition to the television night at timeouts correct hockey used to be beautiful prisoners only one timeout. And then we got challenges that and we got review any hockey there's only three TV breaks in a period. In college basketball this foreign twenties there's under sixteen under twelve under eight under four dollars costs 1410 and six so there's. Football I can't keep track to support their five breaks or quarter I think. High school umpire Mike texted in three mound visits per game any mound visit after that is an automatic pitcher removal. Keeps the pace up. Keep up the great work guys yeah I mean. The other thing about that. We talk about the sometimes with football you know the team who call time on some take in the five yard penalty because it only with the ASEAN defense him. Time out is often a way to kind of like. In college basketball you stop dog other team's crowd you're they've got the momentum here you are quiet the crowd on your call timeout you don't like the look you call timeout we could you know you might wanna set up a player they got to the defense something and sometimes you let your team's play through that stuff. While the fewer timeouts you have the more yet to play through that kind of stuff that you've got a pitcher. You decide you don't you just. What's the big deal who just you're out there if I come out there that means you've got to come out. So mound visits are just the dugout or you're talking teammates coming out to the mound to catcher wants to come out like pitchers calling dugout to dugout Doug Doug Arquette. Pitcher could still set to catch I don't know not wanna throw that get out on a doctor Eric fein catcher can come out but the manager comes out if it comes out of the dugout right. Here's pitching coach comes out to just talk to the guy and settle him down you're done. I think there're so many other things I could do before we get to that. I wouldn't say it's a deal breaker Jeremy I think you're onto something but I think you could still. You could you know. Don't take forever between pitches stop having guys step out of the box you can still speed up at bats and you can still Pete does speed up sequences of pitches. Before I'd get to. Limit the mound visits or what you know rob Manfred even took brought up the idea of limiting the amount of pitchers you could use like let's stop. K pitched a one batter get about get another guy and pitched to two batters get him out get another guy and wait out typed my clothes or get this tampering a closer enemy you can really. You know you can earn their manager that you put 56 relievers out there and a three inning stretch and make your head explode. So there there are some other I think you can speed the game up and other ways before you got to. Limiting the them the mound visits by guys that just the picture to work let's pick up the pace your kids they talked about a pitch clock they do it in the minors. Glad it's not that religious for me Dornan and pictures you know what I'm. Out on the scoreboard wherever you want and say guys you get the ball from the catcher bone. Clocks running go through the next pitch within X amount of time and you know what limit the amount of times a guy can step out of the batter's box. And it you can even say you can't step out of the batter's box right just stuck there pick cured that you want a limited you get one time in an attack. You can step out of the box so I think those are areas look they're not gonna. But holding reduce you can really do anything with commercials this is how you know where rights holder you know we paid a lot of money for that dot I don't you don't. But the company pays a lot of money to carry the bills and carry the sabres guess what you try and make your money back. Through ad sales so I don't think you're gonna do anything with commercials because you're you're gonna affect your radio and TV rights holders I can feed leagues doing that. So it's got to be in game activity and picking things up and picking up the pace. That's the stuff over the years to tag up off sides even trying. You know prevent as many stoppages over the course of the game. But I believe replace is I'm a proponent but I keep saying that it's Killen sports it's Ellen may and I don't aren't there archery timeouts I think you've due to limit those. Absolutely Weytman stoppages that I have in addition of the especially the reviews the reviews have made it us cellular it's dragons or down. Back to the jets because as we open with with both Bill Polian and his comments but the jets thinking. Can you make peace with the fact that the jets are both. Bill pointers once it tanking. Reloading okay. And also one of the team's interest didn't Tyrod Taylor. Seriously you're you're trying to equate one to the other top Knoll. How does that work dot sunset watch how your day people thanking I wish you won't be tanking and also interest in a quarterback that's not terrible that's him that you're trying to don't. They don't seem to you can't put it equal sign that the two. Tanking trade for Tyrod wouldn't seem to make sense. Tanking would be G dose Christian Christian Hatteberg is our starter the dry air price petty good luck with that Fella now it wouldn't they don't they don't make sense so why are they shouldn't Tyrod. Thank you know the browns are done tanking that makes sense bridge guy you know the niners wanted to trying get something in the in the right direction so that makes sense. The jets all these moves are these players they're releasing in the in the name of the chatter about how they might be looking to go to the bottom of your quarterback. If we're gonna do that. It's not very Smart to get a body to get a decent quarterback in return. It it. I would next it would make sense I would not expect it and if your separate Cisco quite honestly. We San Francisco and how much interest that could they haven't Tyrod Taylor. I could see Cleveland Nike said because it you'd feel like they're done and they be bringing in a guy who either a they believe hue Jackson can develop into a long term answer at quarterback or be. You're not spending your one on on a quarterback right nobody's projecting the drastic quarterback with first picked a lot of it seems to be miles Garrett from Texas NN. So if you brought in in Tyrod if you this like itsy. The browns say we're bring in Tyrod either a he's our long term guy or B he's a bridge guys we still have the number one pick we can go the defense of impact player. And it twelfth if one of the guys quarterbacks is still left that we like OK if not then finally get another starter at that position and we have tyra as a bridge guy. You you can even make you arm it it makes no sense for the jets if you're blowing up the rust and doesn't see you know what. Not sure that makes sense for San Cisco either get a you're not sold on Mitch Robiskie or are these quarterbacks would the niners wanna do. Wait another year and have Kyle Shanahan work with Sam Arnold. It really it would make sense for either of them I don't think to make go ahead and make a trade for Tyrod Taylor and that's the 49ers believe. Where we can break this tie reds good we're gonna we're gonna really turn things around this season makes no sense for those of those teams do that. Maybe bill O'Brien likes Tyrod and thinks I can still win the AFC south with him to be better than Brock costs while our I've still got a really good defense. But there's been no rumors at all about Houston but I'm I'm talking about drawing dots with teams Denver I could see it right. They liked Tyrod maybe LA did like him when he was in Baltimore. And they still feel it got a really good defense we'll make it work here with Tyrod. It wouldn't it makes no sense for the jets and it probably wouldn't make sense for San Francisco either what's the story. On Brian Hoyer these days. Anybody. Houston gave up on him because it really bad wild game and he and he got hurt when I Chicago last year he had six touchdowns in six games and don't know politics are pretty good jolly about learning got hurt right now they hurt. He's 31. He can mind the store for me his middle name is Axel gotta love that. You sure axle lawyer you know Brian axle Hoyer was named after Axel Foley now has got to be jewel of the Axl Rose possible okay. Where's he right now is he under Contra staying with the bears and I thought it was is suffering. I thought it was you affect their move and on they might go to what Matt Barkley looked up the CBU effect. Because if he's the FA what you get to share the story about Michael and with the Bucs were offering him to be the backup. Or seven million dollars a year and it's like the new back up salary Qaeda has chased Dan that's more than what Chase Daniel got to back up in Philadelphia. And if you know I'm curious if employers he USA and he's got starting experience on his resume clearly. What does he get on the market what's what's the going rate for the finger quotes top. Unrestricted free agent quarterback on the market. I don't know who it is by the way and I'm not sure what the money is but if Clemens get to get seven as a back up 101112. For the top free agent quarterback. Which by the way is could be one of the reasons why the bill to be pursuing a trade in and shouldn't Trevor Ximian. You can trade Tyrod off your roster you get Trevor Ximian clear up thirteen million in cap space ice I think. If you really want it if you really wanted to talk about a team that's trying to make the playoffs this year what they can do you do that you get somebody to take Tyrod. You don't have to worry about that contract you go I'd trade for semi and you pay him whatever is make and three quarters or whatever 6700000 dollars. You'll open up thirteen million in cap space. You go from nineteen to 32 and cap space and now if you need a couple of starters which you do you need a number two receiver are right tackle. Cornerback maybe two receivers a linebacker. Can't do all that the travel to get a receiver in free agency is holocaust tell how much 8101000010 million dollars right if it costs you ten million. Then you're on watch in salary that receiver salary Claes salary and Tyrod. And an offense that last year was 31 in passing like I put it that much money. Into a passing offense that doesn't pass but where is a fight slop out Tyrod but also that ten million dollars on a receiver. Because I'm manage a game quarterback with Ximian with Hoyer with whoever might be definite false Mina might be seven million might be eight million. But even if you don't wanna do that. It's just this is all about flexibility you have options now even if you think ten million is too much to pay for receiver that's what it would take. OK again this is with the trade Tyrod gets Ximian lord your cap number quarterback and still have to manage the game guy. Even if you wanna spend ten million on a receiver you could look. I think the right decision is to walk away from Aaron Williams if they do that anger and open up a little more cap space would be they need a starting safety. I think the right decision is to it is to release Corey Graham don't all they'll do that they still might want. A veteran presence at the back end of the secondary a guy you can mentored via the younger players so you're need to you're gonna be at least one safety. It's keep on Seymour ready to step in to be the starting quarterback of Gilmore leagues I don't know. My point is you you would have the ability to go out and maybe you can afford to sign Zach brown or whatever line back you need to start with Reggie rack them and Preston brown. Your group or you're gonna need a starting safety guess what. It's gonna run you I don't 78 million dollars for a starting safety you wanna starting quarterback could rugged 1011 million dollars. They need more cap room to get some things done sure they can cut guys you cut Erin Williams you can cut. Kyle Corey Graham you do open up to starting jobs and cut carpenter throwing in the state a couple of million dollars due to do that. I just think that the quarterback situation. Of all the layers of discussions we have about Tyrod. If you could move him and have a guy who's as good. AB may be even a little bit less but for thirteen million dollars in cap space and to fill other starting spots again. If if there hell bent on we have to end the drought we can do this in 2017. I think that's the business approach you take you move out your quarterback you find another got a managed the job he stable all that money and now you got okay now we go get a couple. Couple starters in free maybe three starters in free agency because again. You have multiple needs. Easily. 1234. But I can I can easily name six spots right now that you could upgrade at starter Kent. US six draft picks by the way after spending one of those picks on a quarterback that leaves you five draft picks barring any trades. You can't take care of everything in the draft the gonna have to use free agency. And if you try to make the playoffs I don't think dot settlers are. Knock on wood will will be lucky with Lorenzo Alexander guy again I don't think that's a good idea. I forgot the term dust settlers alike though does that was that was a Doug really would you just leave some cap space open and not go. Close to the cap because he's signing guys this year it's gonna tie up money next year in the year after so maybe you would just basically say. Yeah I'm not gonna go to Google and come right right then again if you're trying to make itself keeps saying another they they think they're they can be a playoff team and they can. What little the one great unknown is the coach you know coaches show up in win coach of the year and maybe McDermott's got some sort of and I'll magic touch but they won't be picked the book debate the playoffs they'll be picked to finish third and vision mission that. And Miami Miami do when the jets a before. Yep. And you know like make me say I would think I would think. Most of depreciation prognostications. Again this this does depend on who the quarterback is it is kind of important position and we don't know it is. But looking at the schedule looking at where the defense was last year holes that are on this team. A new head coach first year head coach. I think most people would be looking at like a six win a type season like six intent you factor all that stuff and that's why act at I think boy you know that the at the quarterback discussion is fascinating I just think. I've already spoken my piece about I I don't I think Tyrod citi's limit I don't think he's gonna get better. That we you know I get it I got a couple tweets again today about. You know why do you wanna give up a good player well because I think he's hit his ceiling and I can be much better at that position. And if you move him out. You open up cap space to make some other moves look. Either way right whether Tyrod is back. Or they going another direction are we still gonna be talking about the bills as. Well you know we'll get Tyrod right how many times we get this call Tyrod not bad fellas if we just get some weapons around him we put him in the right scenario. I think we can make the playoffs with him we can win some games. Great so you. You're gonna need some money to put the guys in the right position around Tyrod Taylor you just can't do all this stuff. He can't keep him and find number number you know and do all this stuff in free agency and fill up the roster infielder all the can't do it I just don't see how you gonna be able to do unless you start. Shred the roster an in your opening up more spots days doesn't all work isn't Ximian. Continuity. Obama wants them point that it's a dead at a to a Dennis in connection yeah. The bills or bring in the offensive coordinator who know and bring him his quarterback. Let's compare simian to Taylor last year. But it we want to win loss record completion everything up and down the line meego. Simien played in fourteen games him yet she played his last game with a grade five EC separation of in his non throwing shoulder. It was not throwing right but the Broncos actually call a lot of flight McGuire you playing of they're very injured player and it is meaningless game to played one game within injury there okay Tyrod attempted 436. Passes. Simulate them to 486. Advantage on completion percentage Taylor 61 to 59 and a half 61 point seven a 59 and a half yards goes to Ximian. 3403000. For Taylor. Touchdowns 18% in seventeen for Taylor. Interceptions ten for Ximian. Six for Taylor and yards per attempt six point eight to seven point zero advantage. Simien. Air yards per attempt six point 96 point eight about the same. Rusher to be dramatically different rush charge would be right adjust. Adjusted air yards per attempt which takes into account a number different things quarterback rating 84 to 89 and QBR 68 for Taylor. 55 for simian the flow. Sixtieth on that plumbing and running in scoring rushing touchdowns with help teller a lot this department so it. Is Taylor you know you don't act you don't do it this way is he sixteen times twelve times better than Ximian. Now. But if the bills wanna. If they're not gonna ask a guy to do much not like the key here. I don't have a problem pain accord acts sixteen million dollars if he's gonna be the focal point in my offense in the reason that I win in lose a minute I'm in great shape but. If the bills as a offense as ace roster say. Where another team that's gonna try and be strong on defense protect the football and running room. Then you don't pay your quarterback. A lot for that which I I would think would be their philosophy that sees a Big Dig at Taylor eleven million at. Eight million Ivan did bring him back in a heartbeat right you know I didn't say in this whole discussion that we've been having. With Tyrod it's it's it's been somewhat black and white. I haven't really brought in the fact of what about a restructure. Where maybe that there's that middle ground you know we're talking about. You keep Tyrod. And you inherit that and you have that contract that cap or Dick Cottam and for a thirteen million dollars the middle ground as you keep Tyrod he agrees to restructure it lowers the cap number a little bit. And then maybe you can get a player out of that in free agency that you wouldn't have gotten so I should I'm we should mention that there is that alternate. Quick tweet from Brad if his QBRs 55 acquire wouldn't just go to carnal Jones you you you could that something that we've talked about as an option the only reason that you might not. It is. That you want a veteran rain ish guy means it means not really much those two things he's got more sample size that he has more NFL expressed the cartel not a lot. But he's got it but the big thing is Dennison knows. Dennis and worked for them. He knows does that guy have the smarts for the game he knows about his decision making he knows about you know his work ethic he knows about. Kenny digest the playbook. He knows about how we deep Dino gets along with his teammates he knows about how he is in the huddle and how he handles things and in the meeting her he knows all that stuff. You have an offensive coordinator who knows the quarterback. With Tyrod Taylor I'd have to learn the quarterback and Simien does have. You know more than cartel game experts got a triple a starts cardinal had one at the end of the year. Now they get I'm not about trying to play up Trevor Simien as a thousand Tel better meet either but I think a large part of it is at least you do have an offensive coordinator who knows all about that guy. Yup I'm not artists Itar del he's a lot better what I'm saying is it's about the same caliber of quarterback just different. Taylor usual lot more on the run game Ximian Mike give your complete passing game. Mean if you get Ximian Sammy Watkins will Shawn McCoy Charles clay and whoever else is on the outside. Maybe you have a better offense may be of more balanced softens. A week from tomorrow will know the future for Taylor. Be ready yet eight days away by the way. I'm going to be I'm going to be away so be it a big things went on vacation next week after Wednesday move to the Tyrod decision comes down either Thursday or Friday well. Or statue of Tuesday the contact period opens up in free agency so the bills can start talking other quarterbacks. Tuesday. The league year opens Thursday. So and trades can be made official and and free agents can start to sign. And then the deadline on the contract is Saturday so there's your window for next week. You could start hearing stuff I think on Tuesday if worst starts leaking out about the bills being connected with certain free agent quarterbacks by Thursday you can have a trade. If the bills think they can trade Tyrod. In six days they can officially announce a trade of Tyrod Taylor. Should be fun week. War. None of the stuff can happen they just pick up the option coverage quarterbacking his move forward and roll forward you know you don't. 80305 get to join us 88550 to 550 are on WG. Enjoyed it and all I've watched his work ethic and credit to him and our trainers and medical staff were where he is in terms of the health status at this point and he's won a number of games this organization so. Morning good position and yet we've got to respect the process. In this situation. This Phil's head coach Sean McDermott from the com mindlessly. Running backs and offensive linemen are working out today and ourself not show is on hand and the be more interviews I'd I would. Think the quarterbacks were talking today to the media so. It's no one outside. So solve cover all that today for us you'll hear him on the station you'll fought you can follow on Twitter at south sports and read his work at WGR 550. Dot com I pass this along with all these discussions about Tyrod Taylor found itself. Story in I think was in the news this morning. I apologize which guy it was you can check the paper and you know one of the guys. They did or maybe this was cell might have been the day the DNC anyway he spoke to Greg cosell. Now he works for NFL films he's an analyst and senior producer NFL films. He's one of those guys that lets like spends forever in in rooms watching tape of players. And heavily evaluates the draft excited if in fact. When a coward used to be on on on this station he's got Greg cosell on all the time talking football. So they spoke to him over to this article I've paused might have been south they spoke to him about Tyrod. And I think the way he. Characterized Tyrod. Is exactly how I feel and they get it wraps it up so perfectly to explain the points that we make about Tyrod Taylor. So here's what he said. He's a smaller quarterback who's a good athlete who doesn't throw the ball great. He doesn't throw in anticipation that you need on a consistent basis he's relatively erratic and his accuracy his arm is slightly above average but not more. I think he's a quarterback you can start in the league. But I think people know who Tyrod Taylor is the larger question is do you believe you can be your starting quarterback for a lengthy period of time. I don't mean that's that's it that's that wraps it up. Can you win with some games on them. Yes I think you can't infect you don't let me be one of the comet because we were talking earlier about Ryan Tamil and how he felt about ten Alan I said last year kind of scared me. Because first four years on the the channel said near innings he's just he's there. You know you win some games you lose some games he's nothing it's and then they and a make in the playoffs last year and I thought oh god I hope Daniels not becoming like a real quarterback. Kircus Ellen Tyrod on the bills I move on because he's the kind of quarterback you can line up and more than likely unless you're dominant and other areas on your team. You'll tread water with him. You line him up the place and good games the struggle and some games three years down the road to be having the exact same conversation we're having right now. That's Tyrod Taylor and that's how I feel about Tyrod Taylor and I don't want to have this conversation. Three years down the road. Kinney went yes. Can he win enough games for me to get a championship now. Because of the shortcomings in his game. The games it there for the taking the fourth quarter he isn't good enough on a regular basis to make the plays and pull games out as a pastor. Because of the shortcomings in his game that is like one but better descriptions I've seen a Tyrod Taylor pro and con. And at the end of the day why I think you reached the judgment that. You move on and find somebody else to do the job until you find that perfect guy that legitimate guy quarterback he's just not him. Again he's not bad he's not trashy he's better than most of the quarterbacks that those have run through here. Well the last seventeen years. But as Greg cosell pointed out. We're going to be having this exact same conversation three years down the road who recruited that look we got to get better how to veteran quarterback is up eight. But I need better from my quarterback. And that's the problem with Tyrod Taylor. Duke Carolina this week and you went to a duke Carolina game did yeah which one and Carolina right the genome now it was it was the year Carolina was that it was after the national championship with. Hansbrough and they they stopped they lost to duke at the dean don't. Too bad you're secure fun game now. Yeah it was always the ever heard North Carolina never gets talked about as flicks don't really have but anyway. I was I was jacked up to experience a duke Carolina game do you think it was. Compared to what you think you're duke Carolina game at Cameron would be like oh my I I would need in public how old. Was it rowdy was in just a college basketball game or two good teams it was loud there was definitely. I mean. Getting out of the hotel going to the shuttle parking lot you could feel something special about the game that night. And it was it was loud Jeremy but I also went to two Cameron. We went to it wasn't duke Carolina Cameron was to Georgia Tech but I wanted to see what Cameron's like is not close to this knuckled in fact it's funny. What I've been Carolina couple times every now and then Roy Williams will will point out and be critical of the fans at Carolina that the buildings not loud enough. This to students there well they'll jump though but that the county is the locals if you well. There are not it's not got rowdy place because maybe they're just spoiled they went so much it's not an intimidating place in terms of crowd no. That night you could tell it was special everybody hates duke down there. But Cameron it's not even close Cameron would have been way more intense than the deemed old for that game I would having never been to a UNC game at Cameron. I will tell you that I would think it would be far more intense. The whole place to be knots the deemed eligible to different. Is not the line she's crowd but. I don't limit. I don't get a big impression that they are. Rowdy fan on and not say that they're not but. It's like god that your honestly compare it to but the ACC here in the same conferences do quiz that tiny building its super loud enough Syracuse has a giant building where sometimes it can be hard to generate a lot of sound and there but. Because it's just so cavernous and big yeah Syracuse meanwhile has big game this weekend their home against Georgia Tech tomorrow afternoon. And as much as that win over duke you know Dickie v.'s like during the tournament. I think fit to be George tech. They're both teams are seventeen and thirteen yeah. And if you Syracuse. You've had some good wins you've had some terrible losses you need to beat Georgia Tech. And then not get knocked out the first round of the ACC tournament so I think Syracuse has work still to do to get to determine but if they get to. Nineteen wins in the ACC win that conference with three wins over top ten teams and they're at their strength of schedule there are PI it's still not great that's your biggest problem what you what you can you vote their schedule. Give me their quality nonconference victory. I don't know that plate that's I think that's part of a discuss not convert to stop because they're right they're quality wins in compress and Albert is so tough and you don't disregard your quality wins in conference and what's when you know what are you verses. Top 25 what are your vs RPI top fifty in all those numbers I would think will bode well for Syracuse because of ACC victories. But it it the strength of schedules not gonna get them into the tournament right no no I mean in nonconference victory I. Don't have one briefly yes they get him because Judith and I am confident just human Boston University now or Cornell not are now yeah. They they don't have a very RPI ranks them eightieth. Almighty that as a terror. Eight teams there are PI eighty don't get in is bubble to dump they do not get out that this you shouldn't be lower than like. Fifty you get the 5055. You're playing with fire with a banana large bid. And Iran as their eighty. It depends which ranking you use strength of schedules Syracuse is at 46 soccer the 46 toughest schedule as the ACC ground yeah. So it I'd I don't think that they are a lock at all and if they lose to George tech and they go to seventeen and fourteen and. It's a lot of losses and and and you're gonna have another loss you'll have a fifteenth loss and she run the table at the ACC tournament it's a lot. But we're you know I've Jon and I've gone back board about Michigan State and if there and or not. And I think therein but you know you're cute I think they've got twelve losses. They lose to Maryland that's thirteen if you lose you'll lose a Big Ten game that's fourteen. Even in the power conferences you get to a point where you know you get a lot of losses that that's not a good look. I'm at it yet you probably should beach is at home by the way. That is home but you should be Georgia Tech you gotta be Georgetown can lose to Georgia Tech at home that's not a good look going into the turn just got blown out by Louisville. And that's a quality loss obviously but still appeal to Q you lose to Georgia Tech at home and then make case for now enlargement it's hard to do now in the. ACC. Just the standings themselves. North Carolina Notre Dame do global Florida State Miami and Virginia are always 125 and I'll make the tournament yet. Syracuse is nine and in the conference Georgia Tech is 89. Thank you got beat you have to keep this team you're 909 the conference you lose at home to Georgia Tech how do you make it out large if you really you have to be have to get him. At least you can then you get attending the conference again I could see them winning and still not getting in. I'm not that I'm not guaranteed to get there and they have such that summary bad losses. Really bad losses you talk about in conference out of kind of odd bulls OK balls they lost to. Payton whose foreign thirteen in the conference. Who they lost who saint John's right like they have Syracuse has some really got blown out by saint John's earlier yes I remember that. That was our scratch or mad at that point on what the heck is going on Syracuse. So work to be done but now now again what what do they done and say the last. Ten to twelve games one of the factors the committee takes into account is how you're playing at the end of the season and if you lose to George attacked well that's not got that right but right conduct no you're right that's that would be a really bad loss but if you had a slow start to the season but you played better over the last few weeks month. That that can get you into the tournament sometimes that's one of the factors that take into account. We could Sunday's selection show to be fun looking for to see the buffalo revealed. Got my tickets ready to go looking for to see the reveal and see who's coming here and I've seen a couple of Brack ecology projections with Michigan State coming or the Debbie fantastic I would text my son and tell on the come home and see his team at the arena what's coming up and extend the sports today. Coming up an external sports we Ole opry. Be the sabres weekend we'll give you some numbers on not the teams they have to play their schedule going forward it is. I use that term beefy even though Tampa has not had a great year Tampa starts the the the run of beef. And I have news about what I what I think was a fairly popular TV show in the eighties. Coming back they re booted version coming back to ABC. You'll gonna wanna listen. Breaking sports experts here. GR Sports Radio fine. The thoughts. To extend a sports is brought to a sunbeam service experts heating and cooling. Call 1866. Experts to the sabres play Tampa tomorrow the lightning play tonight against Pittsburgh beat test for them as. Tampa is 71 in to win their last. Ten games they don't have Ben Bishop anymore they don't or Brian Boyle now or belt very popular today and nice job clearing out space yes they did yeah. Tampa is still alive for a playoff spot their four points back. Which is decent you know four points. December's five points back in a can I say Tampa's liven says the sabres aren't do. I don't feel like the sabres are alive so I don't think I would say capitalize you know their 71 and two in their last ten and they do have two games in hand on the sabres so like. While they're only one point ahead. You know I can easily be a gap they make up bill. I don't know Tampa scheduled to the sabres goes Tampa Pittsburg. Pittsburgh of course of thought 84 points and third in the metropolitan then the sabres play the flyers who are ahead of them then they play Columbus twice. Which is nasty so you know this sabres team. Last night is a nice break but I would expect them to revert to form what. What what's different about that there's only game. They have the talk all the time and they were shooting the talk all the time and remember. They did have a lead in Arizona right wasn't there with two goal lead going into the third period should've won that game too. Against Arizona coyotes before they decided to collapse so in the desert a week from now the sabres could be in a vastly I'm not really vastly different spot but. I wouldn't expect him of trying to get us once in a week from now Tyrod could be different. Tampa. Wolf there's schedule that tough really tough they play. Football players Saturday guess what their pets it's possible and how they're played in Pittsburgh tonight yup then come here so Pittsburgh sabres. Rangers Minnesota Florida Rangers Ottawa Toronto Washington that's tough stretch that's brutal and at play Arizona that is a really difficult schedule. So amen amen to take Tampa out of the mix here and I'm gonna write them off because of that they'll probably win the lottery to right. Etiquette really it would that's scheduled Jeremy they can fall. You know they're not that far away from the bottom either like the sabres they could fall down to the bottom of the division Europe in the attic follow the bottom of the content with that schedule. They still play Detroit a couple times by the way at the end of the month if you think in bottom of the conference are real quick imagine this going to break.
