Abide by a couple different publications to finish last in the American athletic conference so as a coach. Do you do you almost appreciate that kind of opportunity. To over achieve a means you can't finish worse than last in the conference so do you almost appreciate that sort of that opportunity. What you got embracing it to the country you know introduced.

Good morning Greg I've picked up to get real cold just want to know if if if if Thomas bimbo know all of their great. If you if you could've chosen your personal favorite now and I'm not talk about whether recruits now talk about for Tubby Smith his personal favorite. Who would you have chosen as a performer. Four I watched dual Morris cultured Lawrence well this year McDonald's truck and took a great job on the correct I don't. Rangel should remove him. Children bill. Thrilling car ensure it was unbelievable. And you know a lot of shall show you that right now Obama trade right now has dollar mergers and Garrett will slow. I job. Politically correct it is that was well done did you get a chance to go backstage with broad out is that no cam Whalen is obviously a massive supporter review in Memphis basketball yeah beta do you tend to go meet Bruno. You know I do in the mall lights sold to support that move. Good thing because I didn't secure backstage to pick out. All the inflation might lead with somebody who's got it but they learn a lot of those wolf but it was. In total Greg should know what I would gentle guy actually. Coach how as a recruiting local event we we've talked about it I know you can't say anybody by name. But you've but a lot of different characters a lot of different players obviously prospects here Abby found it to be. All been removed the players move coaches have been daughter Lucia two awards dinner goes again that it had to get smoking. It's okay WW. And we must put virtually lobbying war room in the war or this is all didn't work hard every job I think followed more soldiers. No hazard to establish. You'll want to. Texas Tech who took the ball to a three years and Garrett were rewarded well what China will commitment so little programs and a symbol this program interest. It was into the bank who is like no that had winning records in there and have them. For the mobile in the post you broke the last few years so it's also a lot to billable beyond. Great foundation about a judge passionately in good shape. There's some things that happened throughout glossy but Bob McDonnell occurred reaching out to the coaches stayed in their differing. And it's and that's and that. I think there's surround trailed char Beers as visible as possible. There's only so much and we're most that we go to about a little. We're all of those who don't bother ring. We're little short missile movies will be the national media and I would have a beer more useful than they're. They got lost in Kingston. And so assertions to the wall we always will. Yeah you bring the ball. I was doesn't just bring up you know are going by the rules are literally has obviously been a hot topic in college basketball the last couple weeks and listen we've talked about your recruiting. On this show openly and whether we get we agree or we disagree with how you guys go about it there's no denying that you do it the right way you do it by the rules. How hard is it to be in this business as long as you've been in this business. It to be a man that does it the right way in this industry when it feels like there are so many. That that don't play by those rules. Wanted to remove all these yes a little more emotional. Anything else shorten the social model is doing that they're they've gotten that. It is Jerusalem to come home and I don't shoot or should longshot should tension built that from our country's most want to go. The relevant at all on the verge mustaches and little else that's the role that I'm glad trousers but the world changes. We must therefore understands. It anymore and they have made comments socially and volatile as mobile. The moved in next first. They're playing with little. They're deported efficiency. And I didn't really. And so out del potro has hagee national hagee was Schumer actually a level also can learn more drugs much he's. I've lost almost identical to the public order and I know exactly where they were the players will as well but that's. That's how I operate my dad told long the reason seventeen kids. All these are border depression and that's what people do all that trash. You know trolling or addition. Kings shall we shall put the pressure on. Go get a firestorm over the course get a clear picture out just. What should be admit it's it'll. For that we can help grow and mutual trust and you'll Libya great terms Columbia you know good career here. And you'll be a bit shy in person and just as it is no we don't do it including morally to Laura Bush. But my dad as Central Asia boo a soldier apparently coaching there's pressure. Because. I usually just ram. I can potentially. Fatal fatal bill and they're allowed to bubble pressured situation that. Don't get it there. At all. A coach you mentioned. You know early on your tenure that in terms of recruiting that that maybe Memphis kids didn't grow want to be nervous anymore maybe that it an end to a large degree that's got to be factual because the world so much smaller now social media kits have gone elsewhere have been successful. When that time that you've dealt with now. We'll have a little bit longer time the deal in some of these fizzle recruiting these local kids but you still feel that way or or is there an advantage do you feel maybe they do. Maybe there are kids that that that grow up want to be tigers' regular events from me. Oh yeah alone sure we'll be able a lot of success here when you show us where you live who. We're better it was a practitioners together and moldaschi former players strum bar practicing overly bullish market they actually do it this will actually help people. Well yeah they understand it and we are Powell. Should be optional there's a law that actually people born the and interact Beecher fought with the gun you know albeit recruited over the it's going to be killed by what we. Yeah I think players are very receptive to. What were illegal. Forward we're establishing here. It's still all play roles so you're against it got to the got to witness. It and see them and appreciate your little hole. That's so how special award old old consciously have to intrusion. I would rule on the program. Got a beautiful track and so little trouble.
