While you're good to hear your voice recorder it traders report good to be around you know I'd I listen a lot to you guys listen to actually driving and doing some stuff and then I wanna get into to your program and and that CD yard mr. supreme bay interview so world all the way as well feature called book live radio this is why I love it right I had some. Opportunities in life to do television and things and that's all nice and but I I fit more obviously. Into the radio. Realm and you never know what's going to happen it today I'm listening to your show. Eric and our good buddy John Martin. Barack is it is in pain the arm. Yeah he's he's he's doing a dot shows up actually gives him a mini physical here in the studios. But when we don't know what your thinking is this whole things roll it around this morning. Well listen here got to be honest with you one when John overlap I hurt. I just figured it must be another bachelor party weddings and if you walk I mean that's typically. That's how we can predict that with regard young man Welker or guys who have. The guy who cook so my days off last year in the borrows some of his great golfer characters that would lead you to my dad like animal. Spoke about failed adversary. That belt when he first overall Joker on the Internet about what credit but you get to work. He's coming in currently does a lot of missed supreme base of course scoring yet but I am pro second. Almost tigers saw only known meteor we don't wanna. No one at bats so he's in there any it and and you know typically air united that you plan for a couple of our fourth stroke and John Lan a local. Aren't as well planned and sold planned all this while the producers. We had a number of humanity in an intercom or come crew cut. Give their own personal individual diagnosis what I thought we did hernia we've brought it up perhaps. On the week so called gall stones at one point and yeah man he was in an angle bank and the kind of wrap alone a real problem was. Or looked much lower than it should bury a column yet coupon and we had a we had doctor Lipman doctor market meteorologist to listen. Any help John crane there are the microphone a speakers income in the studio. In John it is they'll get an exam right there. Which which. And what the best actually the best advice for the doctor not sure would kick your butt to the doctor my initials over John cutout hole early. We got the doctor no the best part of the spirit. We went through hernia beware of their cults don't we went through all these things that you know so clear my mind might require surgery Joker and so maybe not. Think Garrett scared thanks I think it was severe. Guess we'll. When you hear. About it. Augusta for like hello I'm not just put the other good ideas on the end of the fans sound title all real serious look at her. Up the gap strident stepping up for more comparable experiment GAAP. I think the job path that John Graham and explaining to her tomorrow and get in their little police or according to the gas problem and we'll be back we'll both be best. I think you look at is I was listing he's. Describing symptoms I've had the gall bladder taken out right I've had it all know it's it's an all and it and it just sounded like that's what it was but well. You just needed to Tom's and a. You could go for it. Like that he's been you know that it with a golf though rain ending and then got mark came into poker because this has probably have a golf some could be Narnia. So let's not put when he rolled out of their. You know cut downloadable early in the third our country was riding in pain. Opt figures from the producers other court and then what little. The doctors certainly need to go could be a hernia and no job been worked out really hard with oil. With our start with a little. Trying to get the dust and star level we can you get that probably Littlejohn never. Ever going to reach but he is what we can go to court and heart is clearly orca park it gave him. Worked out gave the war but the hard work it and get. So much there Jason Smith does on whether it's a Jerry parish showed Gary Darby and for him today are right I know. You watched the basketball game in Orlando looked like everything was roll along go on well hundred. And sell Florida comes makes it interesting at the end you know it is survive and advance but what was going through your mind as you watch in that game. Don't cougars. By the adult polar in the slurred are coming week or you know we don't have to go through all the we know the reports are out there and you know of course considerable complex and Colombian immigrant that you could not I didn't and I don't think you. Here or I'll break you could probably anybody want to see it in cook very. A considered perhaps our work and look and the lyrics and now they've they've won a couple of little earlier in the season but that's one of the oh the worst in the country what you want to use is you know typical out of there those players global burden hanging. And and one and go on in the case economy not out here are seat. And yet there are a lot of things that you can point in the season and today. Solid job. Whether that's simply be a picnic because they had so many new players only go back and port on why so many new orders and the and the caliber of players they are but not look. 9089. New guys the Coleman look squad other undermined a couple others and end and go from being picked ninth to finish and their personal accomplishment and that. And I think there's an accomplishment of the world and winning according yanked the concert most of look at look at the schedule which was down. What's it should be out of the out of comfort part of the not very typical law. To the Colorado went seventeen and I think aims to trigger big growth Jeremiah Martin's back. Well a couple of all American junior college players. With this schedule. 1719. Is winning to wanting it more than I think most of us thought they would when there's accomplishment Matt epic that's which today. Today at least he didn't wanna beat him miss that wanted to win and you wanna beat them kind of bow out fold up to a to a team we know is in good looking at. That you should be added that are critical and frankly and that was so there at the end when you know Scott Ford cut a double digit lead down the down a couple of I a couple of points and that is an electric goes down the stretch some big muscle to a question. Not like there's. No not like it's an and it was good deceit in O'Keefe and Davenport great cook. Performance by him at that point now accounts you know he get beyond excellent community go after the game at least score those cute. Take it to feel winning this week you know they've got to swirling all around them Geary you know what they're hearing it it's everywhere Jeremiah talk on the battered by a sense copies now. And at least for this week spoke one game at least. They got to experience winning in this and I didn't go to America make the trip will come back home now you got another game to collect and get excited about the. Obviously bigoted to the grizzlies in the things that I do I haven't seen every game the Memphis has played not every game or tigers but I know that the once the they have watched and paid attention to. The one thing they did was play hard and they may not be best basketball team right but they played hard and they came out hard and I mean I thought nickle very played well you mentioned DeVon yeah I mean they made plays and then it just seemed like. A little doubt Neil creeped at the end they just made some mistakes that but they can't capital all the way it is march but you can never say I don't think. But they didn't play hard I know what happened in that last South Florida game and and it was a mess but. I think for the most part and correct me if you think I'm wrong Jason I think they played hard for him all year. How would you would you consider he says is exactly right for the most part XP and I mean. Maybe could gain you could say OK at least use the effort fair question. In a home all the crap out orca who Connecticut about a week go to court or court and some of the airport there really thought at that point. Menacing and command terribly record collecting tricked out that we're those yet. For the rest of the year two with the recession and and get mad that that went Louisville you know that seem fair. That that was a tough game to them and that's where are now well would go down but it got much more talent right now the Olympic book report that game at at. You know 8910 minute lap up there and that and so no you're you're exactly like the play hard ball and it'll look up. But there's a sentiment out there the concurrent players don't like companies like you know that a few of them. Maybe more than a couple the usual couple to transfer every program in the country they get more than that maybe there's happy with that like after. I'm not going there because I didn't see a scene that they'd like it to coach after that used to victory and look at know when you get a big victory like that art. Everybody is going to be jumping around but they they were a look at that they were all over that gather what they were all over the order band saw a current student and I think they respect the hell out of band and I think they want to get a win Columbus we. Sure are some of the mantra but the the other. Perhaps king Hardaway could be their coach next year yet but I think critically. What can we talk to mauling currently Jeremiah answers and you know what happened to watch in her. Like that which they want to wind took it by and at least they get it or one could probably gonna get comparable amount topic anybody. Probably a few expect them that think they can be also which can be cult. Looked on when you won't talk to land the people that it would go as well a tall order so akin the to the point. Yet they played hard for law here that's good for them distrust stick with those kids are that they at least get to get one wind down and. Jason Smith talk with a today on the gave her show Gary Darby in break heartening and out with me. On a Thursday and so Jason luck and I I've idea what this in the pre games in the post games and stuff. The grizzlies a play and hard to right and the lawlessness is just keep piling up and I don't know. How you know look I know how the that fan base feels I concede the passion and how the tiger fan base feels as well. They can play hard all they want but it does not win and then things just are right as that if this tiger program for the fans is that something the true to. Even though the play and heart at two point win over South Florida's and I mean right now. Was that they bail. Now it's a major problem home. Tell me as a two point win over top order extraction enough that you. Your head down about season tickets for next year commitment and intricate that would have run into the semi to the court would would didn't have a miles to a home. I think that's the program and I thought about what with her sister got. At a crossroads. It could keep telling yourself and look at blow. I'll I was saying this could you know. You look at it two years for Cutler may have just on the outside looking in Manhattan but not any announcement or how could you be. You know you have to pay demand nearly two million dollars if you aren't in that school the construct financially clippers' Al out of our the orca. Want to start breaking everything down and you look at what we're. Million it literally not literally into the spot in the and that people going into next year that it it it. I got sick nurses and I think what he wants it demand equation. So so if you keep going down this road to losing millions. Of hope that people buy into the but how long can this that there are no I mean you had no evidence that people were coming back this year buying in. Are you look at the if you look at the recruiting class which is so important because that. That's what represents hope for program that's what Josh got seven years that the because of the recruits can that'll be great captain classes. And it's seven years. Could you look at all that and you don't see much hope. Right now and and and that is you know it looked as. Attacking it I am perk perk up and those guys that opinion today. Are still low the reality in the post stark reality reality is that that that athletic department of converting money. And right now they have an opportunity not only fixed the problem. But then that the entire other direction toward Al you're you're going from the red the way in the black because Penny Hardaway. Ladies and gentlemen as we know so ticket he got he he got people calling people call me now trying to copy it's just on the possibility. He's got members. All back in the national spotlight whether peak PR around the horn just on the possibility. And it could you go after reporters across yeah. Pull yourself and say man luck and I hope to beat it to work out and hold and come back. Or you can go fix they're right now. And not just kick it like a you can get back to may be a place that we haven't seen in terms of excitement level. I get an account you may be may be taking you even beyond those got cheers when you have the you've got working class. If I look at Nichols saying everybody here at 2010 class that Joseph Jackson you're portrayed in particular tournament but there was always pay. We're not we're not that we all these great players but we're not reaching our our stealing your crap the first week yet. We're so there there was a little bit in the cart and that and so excitement look I think we're pinning. You come and gone back cut. I think that the carriers don't look that latter half of people are just. As one of our caller put it in it the best thing or it's the best webpart put it. We're talking about all the politics when that play basketball if that's what the counties to agitate if you get any Hardaway. You're back. And not just with the book conceit but obviously with his loudest you know he used to these type basketball program you're back but NC with the players. I don't know that you can pass that up that opportunity aperture and I don't forget I don't know that you you can't. And you you really cannot not like you've seen the reports I mean it's obvious now can work behind the scene putting regular staff. And you're not doing metric and on alert. If someone handle the chicken and you're you're a bit of local life you waste your time and so there's this this could pass that. Most people still feel dynamo people feel like there isn't much that can change. Now we talked about a one of the things you know what it took it makes one billion dollar government. At some watch idol are. A firing him after Tony when he's in order a little bit of mostly bad schedule. With not much on the were you know on on the horizon in terms of course is on track but but doing an effort makes him a couple of current event. That's hard to explain even with the money loss it's still harder to explain not to keep stepping up keep you. Guess some people you get some people highly critical nationally obviously again. You've got a national writer in town and would tell you still go to the right move couldn't move on so. Look I don't think there's much second changer it's all you see my point is open now and you wonder wonder what we look at backed PLO Marcel you know. This thing work that you know how about how much of army that segment in Maine and now and the NASDAQ picked up went up it is until the net. Do like they'll take cop pulling bailed them without proper not just it jostle Georgia Tech companies are different they don't have to pay the settlement the prime topic. You ought to symington is that this took me that I look up there in. Your outlook outlook double on roll up our immediate settlement out get out or letting up now. Appeasement signed up to get all of the money and an arm him. You have army because that's the way your cap pretty much in Maine hey. Maybe so happened 88 rounds and weeks from now Arctic via a pick went up so well all will speak out goes. Welcome again I don't think there's much that can change the sport. You've gone to court down the road here. I agree with you and look here's the thing look tubby and in I don't know if you see in the Myron Metcalf. Peace. On espn.com today talking with his agent. And talk about tubby and moving forward when they talked about Toby told the it would be a fortified your processed yet you know it looked. In the press conference doubly so I'm not surprised at this he's been in the business long enough to know. That. What he's been around right he understands the business part of this does understand what's going on. It doesn't mean he has to light get our other coaches who have obviously. It seems like in Orlando. Maybe you know felt sorry for tubby and in some way or form. But he understands the business yet. He really I think came in your Jason thinking. I am gonna get for five years I'm Tubby Smith they're gonna let me do this my way and clean the house I can bring some guys and slowly get them here. And I just wonder and this is this is again maybe meal on the outside a little bit more. Did he really realize and here's a guy that was at Kentucky for goodness sakes. Should know what expectations above everything did he really know Memphis Tennessee when he came. That doesn't actually underestimate how difficult the job it'll from the looking at it from the outside and look at them could secure a nerve. The second The Who programmed into public arm a little two men there. You probably look at America's secret so the and so are our commander looked great golf course. To look good breakers. Program we don't know. Much all that much about Waco I don't wanna act like a bit of history and culture do all the work that you look at and thank. What are com. A got a pretty natural human. Could probably go there and give them the kind of winning the crackling winning they need. And applicable the righty went according to government everywhere like reserve but a but you look at that you look at the check. I mean you've been great uplifting copter and money. We hear it enough to leave a great situation for him at Texas Tech where. At least one national letter could have had made in national coach of the year cricket and Texas Tech back to the term and in the third vehicle at such a typical job. We look at their present opportunities that I can handle that. Most coaches will it. And they don't all of them don't know outlook it is. You can called Josh pastor and call counterpart shelter you can call everyone nick and tell you. After Tubby Smith country you're here at all with their pocket Iowa problem. Until you're in the shoes until you've got you know. It seemingly every one in Memphis trying to reach out to you because. They all individually local program that much that's what tiger basketball mean in the city even still with acrylic a couple of those deep roots. That goes so people that the grizzlies still duke column you've got all of that. Everyone's reaching out to you analytical whoa whoa whoa okay well paid out may argue that has argued several analysts and so because I've never been able for whatever reason to create the electricity. That they are better usually when that program to win and that's that's around. And you can go onto different reasons why aren't you know we can go down media whatever skirt at media for it you know we're getting him getting out more. Whether it's just him. Do and you know being out whatever what are you haven't done it will win at a higher level. To get us excited again to give us like we saw earlier below what the holiday. And it would result in his and it did with Josh when that fan base is good for the most part the arts. If it doesn't approve of the job that coach is doing it's not going to change it speaks. It speaks through its its its pocketbook speaks through its courses and it stops and what the standard decide go to war. Usually get what would it get what you walk and that's what I'm saying arc. I would love for for Toby to make some miraculous or on. OK if a if perk perk perk campaign it is the right thing if it was the right thing for the program ergonomic black front and all the members. Including us everyone media all of us get behind him and that former school next to your bowl sixteen backs 171000. But I just don't think that's gonna happen I don't think that's a reality and again. You could go to you could still UK we could wait for five years that this can afford to do that. But they've never been in that position which seem to dollars and lose and we know how important that all the Serbs let the program. You can't wait all of pork on your milk and that's why now with cable. You know having a plan here two years little musical when Joshua about Pennington has no yeah I wanna be their coach and have a plan now ever done. Well and and on down and got a plan mapped to the opportunity to get out of it with the other. And replace them like we said with something the under is six to cook takes a back to a level we haven't seen your news. One less thing to talk to us just a little bit about supreme bay and ya know UPI dot forgive part of it again but. You know I've heard him at times before. And he he started giving you guys answers and in talking about things he just doesn't talk about I would double doubles gold today. There it was if it was great in and we can nose and go there you know that one of those things with them is is is. He doesn't talk much about those basketball year because he's moved on from it that they don't define them that is explain it is going to look he's not. He's not just a basketball player in those years to you know look. Questions over and over in about soldiers get old for a cynical in fact I can understand that if you're if you're supreme Craig CER. Every time here in Memphis people wanna. They want touch and Syrian and lucky he Lowe's people at street crook we did the interview people and and in their photos of them with him and how much mental book and imagine. That everywhere you go and they everyone wants to ask you about those years because I wanna tell you they Libya. What are you how much the leaders went to on the low level but after awhile. When those are all the questions that are coming in pain and what you're doing now has about folk and he has used so far beyond that now. Ware any good like these platitudes repeats he'd Morissette and change in the world not a great basketball player. Although there as a human being and it is so refreshing. Gary too cute you know take it took to do an interview like that where. I mean you can tell how well rich he is you can tell me how intelligent and we got a couple you know you can a couple of tweets that. Org to learn to spring break who what do you what he's smoking and we can all laugh and joke about their garden that whatever you know he he does oaks awoke. There's a method to what that is doing you can tell when he got this feature coming it was to get what he got the clothing on the storm well. This is a guy who looked like it didn't even space feel like holy cow that that whoever you are you basing their. It feels like what we copy MP elect. He's got a better grip on the on what's happening all around at this oral or this country right now and we do that it is B. And that's what I mean there's a met that there has meant that batting collapse and that is if they are. Because bad review it. First let me ask them a question he opens his mouth is an education so that are not a reflection period a cup so I like there and then to your calling. So we get into the third lascivious feature are you doing on the two year anniversary in college dorm. Don't look at me want to talk basketball we didn't know as we go down analytical stories about their woes and how accurate he was early on in those first few games and Alex it was with a guy. That's that we need to their grows. You know in in their recruitment the other player or sure that would been the two straight year where we need Derrick Rose or. DR knew they think it's something else nearly nearly got to control our calls you and your other. Some got to could bring a national relevance you know. Our it was amazing and and we weeks. We harder stories about Nazis. And about those gains that we just can't get either because most of those guys. India told on every once allowable we don't talk to most of the albums. And so finally figured some of those sort jumped album talk about it and conduct those there's kind of up to the point where you get private school do without goes to their. Welcome to pray and also so grateful and up people's. Look at going to be used not forget that job that day it's like just killing him and out of your comment it was back and but what Obama battling in the younger than a year and a half we've been also GAAP appreciate you listen if it's easy and gentle carping that other. The parties are now it would. It out at paper thirty all thirty minutes earlier it was it was that was probably the special the doors close and and cattle and kind of that relationship between the two of them.
