We're talking about this yesterday you know because it is the the ten year anniversary. Of that 0708 team that's crazy an enemy was ten years ago they young made their run. Did note that though the fire department actually called all my guys. Well played rip it I mean. Talk to them I've got out about I don't know some vulnerability and and not they didn't tell me that they don't call so. Hopefully they do. Although the course a lot of guys so what political or years. Out of the option. Who want to talk to logical. It's not the city are Joey Joey Joey French. I spoke with Jan dust over rob I don't robbed overseas. I just overcome what a guy's true audiocrush. And that's. You know they also have before me. So this is a huge honor men well. I'm blessed to be able to. You conduct yourself and remember there's a lot of history that goes on that program numbers that would be a part of it well. Intel did you have any idea. Come. Whether the university that this plans to honor you guys as a team you know because it was such a significant can't. You know team in year for the University of Memphis athletic department. Do you have any any idea or inclination if there's a plan come to honor the whole team. You know I know. Big government get a victory about it when I was there when she got the last time. Note asking around like you know. There has gone on has they're going to be done for hours you know I think we millimeters we had a huge. Impact on the city there are no more years. There you go out some of the guys feel unappreciated. Plus some of the resort total log on an enormous sum we'll go. You know so much love and support as I do most innovative so. Somebody took little bitter about it. Oh well. Hopefully we can do something good to bring us all back out once I think got to be some big. If you pin is back your procedure marina. Sure aviation offer that you know I know maybe I guess that game well. You know if they let us speaker and the vote abrasion that you guys. Do coaches oh we got to help. Don't you think Antonio log in and others is is kind of weird because as his view it you're part of it but just. I mean you know the history of Memphis sports and you're obviously a year round alarm of the universe are meant to be don't you think. They should bring all of you guys back I mean because we've seen what happened right after that it's there and how hard it is to that to succeed. At that I have a level I mean don't you think they should. Make the dessert I had I know listen it's complicated the right the season is technically vacated but. It isn't really vacated in Memphis and me don't you think they should bring all you guys back. I agree it was sent a bigger day you know reach out to all of us and you know especially we maybe were you know Derek in part that I would hardly be in there are we going to let that go elect Derek. Playing up big in our could be years something where they're Derrick comes demand isn't. We ought to get there is something like that. Or just maybe after about laws over and I haven't got what it bring us all back. I think that god so loved it we all. Loved our Tom remembers. I could speak with Derek on a much she enjoyed his city. I know I love recruit Joey Robert. No robs a load bearing actually earlier area. You know guys embraced that place like home. How big of that the soldiers. That people Ira premiere school. Did something like that issue will bring back. Memories salon ever sued to bring back that excitement that we brought to receive that this team they're gonna have right now I think that's what they need. Especially a lot of guys being new and coaches give it just it's Agassi did he got support that we had a we had. I'm gonna band lineup before we don't pull a blockbuster is either lying around from a building little play. Two laying low price and that's what they need to get back gonna isn't as hard but you know law will limit the post about her battle we wanna see as well. We are courtside at the great Antonio Anderson soon to be. In club hall of Famer over at the University of Memphis. And I wanna stay on this because you obviously have a unique perspective beans it's integral part of that team Joseph always been back to Memphis and you've been back to Memphis. Did you think guys like coach Howland and Derek and and CDR do you think that they they would all be open to coming back to Memphis because you mentioned it in you talk about it with us before. In other there might be some bitterness do you think those guys would be open to coming back. I I couldn't speak for coach cal. Almost oh I don't know well. You know. I'm going to reach out to. Chris. It I don't know Derek scheduled Emery got the traditional before he was my roommate put it three years you've via. And like in auto builders goblet of tag around chant your guys I want those guys there would be what I could and got into a part of you know me utility can't peered out under our solid got a lump them Whitney because look at my brother program will go to guys help me get rid. I am today and I would have maybe it won't be given certain call from located so. I'm worried Obama got a lot of law wouldn't. I'm just glad I'm glad they've taken this first of Antonio the spurs that just didn't you in this this all fair amount we we all want that reunion we had we we we opened up. The lines yesterday we were talking about this obviously everybody in Memphis wants to see this reunion happened the question that we actually has callers was. If you had a reunion of the gas from that team. Would you have cal back with them and I and I and I am guessing what's your answer would be to that question but if it's you we do the reunion part of this hum. You want to out here to witness as part of that or or just the players be enough. You know. I was located he was my coach you know load Marcos fairly. But. I don't he knows someone at some of the city still go to some tabloid and you wanna rule not you know you call. So I want I want I want to keep the good bishop Abby beer or two. You know supported me. And coach always got my back read this thank god that that moment got to be special. Our culture totally understand. But I wanted to be more Obama is an overall vehicle out rest of the debt so that parents don't walk. Coast there you know they're not how it goes. The true Antonio Anderson there's always made about everybody else and not himself with what did you what did you think of the college this college basketball scandal I've got to ask you about its own. Hum folks get arrested man the FBI involved. Possibly you know it's if they crumbling. There's an accident. It's nuts I'm I'm I'm just happy they're probably not see members naymick that would anything. You know we we. The so called big big kitty he she didn't think I'd bet on so you know I paid attention and achieve our urban legend like the geno get tired of all these other guys are all this or the shoe companies and assert that. It is show man like. How much power. You know Judy pal happy days you're not like you exactly were they do. You guys it's nice to have led the saint Thomas is in business that everybody understands that. I think that's regard how we should get paid in the first urged. It's is there a bitter feelings for you when you think of the NCAA just the way that went down what they stripped it over. You know obviously Derek have been cleared by the clearing house when you think of that decision to do it. Or what go what cup comes over you we've never talked to you about that you hate the NCAA. Right NCAA. What does it. I do I don't think geek I don't think they did in the right where it came to us biggest issue in earlier unquote got better regarded they assumed. So what took Derrick whatever test whatever it may be. You know Derek called all of us in this all of those are what really happened or words we all believe it. He had no need a lot of us your driver make it go on a million dollars so you know you know he just apologized sort of an awesome situation where we should be in. Oh you know as saying no he he knows what really happened there. And we know we know are ever so I baby baby baby don't want a small school board members Megan and always were major. You know you're an hero beating all our schools partly Paula. And you know respect and a lot of it injured early money. So another way to sort actor suicides they figure he's gonna. Tell us how we've got to. Can you tell us what Derek told you guys really happened. In Minnesota as you know about managers have been a bailout lead other Brothers. You know what they're saying excuse me was let it be true. In us so we have a sick and we believe we believe we trust them on certain.
