You know you're only. Sports talk shocking. On sports Radio One 057 against them and phils fan. Time to go inside the mind you'll. John Freeman IndyCar that's cool relics that's a scary thought it's time for. Five full Freeman. Five burning questions for John Freeman and this is shocking win games. On sports Radio One 057 FM. Parting shot he would get sports Radio One 057 FM the fan time 454. Freeman we do it twice a week seven on Tuesdays nine on Thursdays. Check as your head feel great. Got a good night's sleep last night ready to go. Gotta be here dragons are I'd I'd every test of staying up and watch and knock Kobe and I and gold state both of those games last night but I didn't do it. Let's get right till we get the Milwaukee Brewers shot four and four bit of a surprise for people out there in three with the Cardinals today at Busch Stadium this afternoon. Say on the positive side shut biggest positive surprise. For the Brewers so far after eight games. Him I would say the biggest positive surprise. On what couple areas but I I'd say Jimmy Nelson pitching as well as he has he's got a nearly Wright's pop. That's a surprise so you know three an era under 32 starts. ERA of under three just to start sentence you know the small sample size but I take. You know I mean he's he's pitched great bowl was outings I think DI TC Addison. Eleven. Innings without allowing an earned run is pretty damn good I would say you know what I'd be chasing Anderson is that coming out of spring training waivers terrible. And I I was a knowledge present this as it is history and Arizona are so far guess the way he's pitched the first two games with a with a surprise. In the same Lotta people of high expectations for Jimmy that guided him into much of a surprise. And. Question number two you now to the Titans have traded the number one pick in the NFL draft two weeks from Tom today. Shut would you go if you're the Rams with golf for Carson Wentz. When that's how I would stick with golf I've seen golf played an off at cal. Where. I would lean in that direction where Wentz is pretty good at North Dakota State didn't face the same competition. Old I would go with golf. Always. If the two talents are equal which it sounds like they are. I was still bigger school I just to mean in competition level but I know there was gonna say Ole Joseph Flacco there is sir you know this guy. I was go to big guided face the bigger competition we're talking about not a good division one competition if subdivision Carson Wentz pace that North Dakota State. That's a little scary. That to me seems like it's a tough situation boy they must love they hit they must love. That kid what about whatever it is whether it's Windsor golf from the Rams to get of as much as they did for that number one pick they must absolutely. Loved. One of those two kids is he. Are. I gotta believe it's probably be golf draft the before wince but who knows but I I'm guessing golf abuse guy. Question number three chuck. Does anybody get consideration for an MVP vote not names staff curry if chuck Freeman is voting for the NBA MVP now. Stuff solidified it EMI has not that he had Duke. NightCall but I mean that was just kind of capping on the on the MVP season 103 pointers 46 points 73 wins. That's enough for me that's pretty ridiculous 400 threes 400 at the U I think blocks made 400 for fifty this year so I like that you know depth curry made like forty less threes in the Milwaukee Bucks now. Not on he's he's eve. Even if you had to are Oprah last night still stiff curry has been the story the NBA season. He was great game last night but dom all season long that guys is called huge shots and Indy keep some. To me it looks like he's getting further and further outside the three point line. He's shooting forty footer mission at that just games back it up doesn't it just keeps backing up. Sure right tucked back to baseball Cubs are off to a seven in one start. Are you buying in to the pre season 100 win at Chicago Cubs after eight games. Our boys are on their way it seems like scoring a lot of runs and a cigarette on our runs they do they are brought their best start since the 85 Cubs. Got off to a 71 start calm. I'll sit won the division. But I am I American a bye in the hundred wins just yet. I'm not gonna Bynum is a World Series champ and all leader will it make the fall from. The podium where the pedestal. Well to make even greater they get that hundred win mark and and don't get to the World Series know what I heard the Cubs have Don Hewitt your office new clubhouse that they got all that it's how fantastic it is. They are from what I understand they have a celebration room which is a Jason. For Delhi to go yes yes a Celebrex or it doesn't want a World Series over a hundred years. They have a celebration room. Next to their clubhouse where there going and Angel celebrates. Arm big moments. Like winning a division title I guess but they have a celebration room. Hubbell I did not know that I would think fourteen medal won a World Series title that matter how much trashed the clubhouse just right up the dogs were billed it. Next question shut I want you to put these two people in their current positions where you think they will be next year. Jason Kidd and John Hammond or they'll jet what will their jobs would be when opening night the NBA comes around. I think Jason Kidd will be the head coach of the box. But I think John Hammond will take. I'm assistants job what Joseph humor somewhere. And assistant GM job doesn't even chaos is the GM job which Odom cannot assistant pro now have to GL and Hammond as Obama he's been an assistant coach bill long time ago but he'll be a as the GM with. With somebody in the league and nobody beat you with do Marseille. There is viper Freeman checked into the year looking forward asking Amanda brawn when she joins us and about half an hour. Point is like tough things I've I mean I had to have been ideal you know I know that the somebody's things that she's not going to answer but mom. I'm looking forward to a her joining us she says she's gonna join us because. You know there is some unanswered questions a bald the pass. The present and the future and the expectations the program. But again I don't know what is this the standards are going to be I mean are they going to be the exact same as it up to be consistently top three. In our eyes and her will Lavelle Jordan to begin in the the look like like Rob Jeter you know we've always said. Any publicity is good weather is bad or good publicity. Now with the recent bad publicity that you WM has had a also sure this is good for the the university. And somebody asked me yesterday after ms. brawn canceled honestly look the world know because people were. Very excited about. Amanda coming on them. Somebody said on Twitter that. Know who cares kids aren't even listening to the radio well. Did the I think the impression of all of this and this is something they have to get out in front of and I think this is part of the reason why men as found some time for us today is that. This looks bad. Is to on the university this whole situation. And yet as a kid pay attention easy reading every articles and listen in every every interview you know but you know whiz. Linked are terrorists. Head coach DePaul is the head coach at UIC is all these other schools are good use that say you know the chaos going on. At UWM they're saying this that doing this the chancellors doing this the athletic director is doing this. It's called negative recruiting and I took it to a grander scale on Twitter last night one of our listeners named Jason. And a city don't think all the turmoil with Rich Rodriguez and Brady Hoke at Michigan you don't think Ohio State was using that. And I know it's not the same when you're cut talking about Michigan. Vs Ohio State but it still the same concept it is still. Teams using. What's in the papers at terms of negative recruiting more towards kids that may wind up going to your school you got a kid. Let's say those you know tocchet east and he is a three star kid he's got offers from around the Horizon League. You don't think every caught every school every coach is gonna walk in of their parents office or their parents living room and say. Look what's going on it you WM you know is absolutely chaos. They're not doing anything right one's gonna Green Bay where we just went to the big dance although I mean you can't tell me ailing starters not gonna use this because he showed what. Mike there was and three Bayside from doing a play by play offers for a few years three years there we you'll be Green Bay and it's not talked about a lot because you know their. You know Green Bay and UWM basketball there you know war under the radar. But there is a hotly contested recruiting war between those two schools oh yeah or that second level of high school player here in Wisconsin and they end both programs on it they know what each other's doing. And the negative recruiting is there. Bruce Pearl did it when he was that you WM. An and and certainly a green made it knew it sold it happens it happens and happens on balls football schools so yes. Right now UW and discuss some things overcome in a matter. Are exactly and and that's a rivalry for kids that like you said around that second tier no they were gonna get diamond's owner Henry Ellis and Bronson caning wasn't to pick the Phoenix the Panthers. But what are the things he can be critical of Rob Jeter for. Besides winning being fifth in the Horizon League most of the time. What do these can be critical of coach heater for is that he didn't recruit Milwaukee great he really didn't mean there's some talent. And I understand the submitted the problems some of the kids in the inner city schools that may not qualifying there's a lot of talent tuck it left to go elsewhere yeah any got a little way from Chicago. Hum in recent years and I think they probably want to go down there and you know with with Jordan coming here babies got some inroads. In the state of Michigan that he can bring over here. Perhaps more that I mean. The state of Michigan is a lot like Wisconsin outside of Detroit and then there's a lot of talent in the in the city for Troy in Flint and all that so. He walks into a very similar situation. At at UWM obviously it's different when you're recruiting to Michigan. And we your core record recruiting to the Horizon League but. He'll he'll have a kind of the same idea and where recruits will be throughout the state I there it is five for Freeman. Stuck in wicket we got more on the box for the Brewers to get to and again Amanda brawn will join us the athletic director at UWM. 945 hash tag asked Amanda on Twitter. And out wool. Fire away and hopefully get as many questions to ms. brawn as we can it's and one half hour from right now.

It's not packers' season OK in Wisconsin is always packers' season and this is chuck can wicked green and gold. Daly always daily look at your tee. Only on sports Radio One 057 as them. The fans. Everybody around them ops he already espn.com. At an interesting story last night the official start of the offseason program. Could mean the unofficial into a handful of long time contributors. Two to Green Bay Packers. Players report back to Lambeau on Monday for voluntary workouts. And a B 61 players currently under contract are expected of a ten most of them will probably be there not all of them. I'm guessing Nate I'm guessing they'll be there but you don't have to go these dinner mollen Terry work outs but check there are some names out there. Outside of James Jones that. We're still trying to figure out if they're coming back and out. There is a yeah a scale that robbed the Majewski is put out. Doubtful 25% chance questionable 5050. In probable 75%. Chance. As the guide when they're they're going to be coming back what are the doubtful these the six names that are out there chuck. Three of them are on this list as doubtful to come back I don't think you gonna be too upset if any of these three don't return we start with. Don Barclay of course he has struggled to regain his form from the 2014 ACL injury. Ya know deep and we can do better like dat in the draft time dom Barkley. I've seen enough from him war do you want take as a backup. They love JC trenor medium of the I think both are better options than Barkley who two years ago was somewhat serviceable on the right side of that line. When he had to fill in at times but as a left tackle and he. Good unless he was banged up yeah I'm not I'm okay. Guys don't know me. Another one in the the doubtful category. Andrew Corliss. The Packers likely would have moved on but. Signing veteran free agent tight end Jared Cook probably clinched it into Corliss snuck up barring an injury I mean you're you know there's an injury happens what's in in OTA days or whatever. On something happens in the offseason you know Corliss it at the end of the solid career here injured for eleven games ten or eleven games Lister but there's Tony for him. And Shawn Richardson backup safety. Is still rehabbing from a second neck fusion surgery in four years or the attention to play again he had surgery in 9 January. The odds though check not really Inchon Richardson's paper out of the Packers always shied away from that I heard Richardson was cleared for action which I was shocked if hearing heard that happened recently maybe about them last week or so I saw something like down. On the and I don't want to see shot Richardson's career come to an end on Lambeau field's turf as he came back with a questionable neck injury just another skill of the out of the talent a guy who who's covers probably get short because of it. Now I I don't wanna see that I I just it would. It would pain me to see I was there in the stands for that your Michael Finley injury I don't wanna I don't wanna see another house and we are remember of course Nick Collins. His as well right out of the 5050 balls here chuck Mike Neal is on this when free agency opened. It appears the Packers would sign Neal or Perry but not both Perry came back and a one year five million dollar deal meals apparently visited the Seahawks. And alliance but. He's still out there and Lori stays ultimate price continues to drop. Maybe if it's heads liking that he brings them back on the PM maybe after the draft or whatever once OTAs start but. I don't I don't see any reason to bring American at the price I'm surprised that meals not this idea. He has played in every game the last three years so that injury prone label is gone and he's put up sixteen sacks in those three seasons combined I'd like to have Neal but I'd be the only one that is a little shocked that they haven't brought Neal back while he's he's a workout warrior of the guy keeps himself and in fantastic shape he's always put his body in. Whatever weight they want them to put it are out but it doesn't sound like I thought it was either or in the bring him back curry for one year deal. On maybe he still might with him with Mike. Don't mind Selig a three year twelve million dollar deal for Mike Neal you mighty fine with that went to many of cheaper and out of the solve that there's no takers out there already in the draft this coming up. Seahawks Lions he visit him both I'd like to see him backing greening gold personally. John Kuhn on this list jock 5050. Is it time to move on from your favorite playmaker inside the twenty John Kook. It's the -- time I think if you rigorous out it's time for a cal ski yes it is. Yeah now but I got to feel it too is gonna come back. He has never goes away. If you wanna talk about packer hall of favors. Vets John Kuhn right there. Last year I didn't know this and and maybe existed realize that John Kuhn signed his one year deal last year. April 13 okay April 13 sweet fifteen just days before. This spring workouts of last year. I feel like John Kuhn was on the 67 Packers. That's always nice ball I thought to have what I feel for sure he was on the 96 Packers if you look closely Bart Starr sneaks in behind John Kuhn I mean I. Say what you bought but but that was a Smart move by Bart Starr I think the art who was the lead block and that thinks oh that wasn't Jerry Kramer it was child through and it was -- and that's what's actually keeping Jerry Kramer out of all of me it's just that it's a lie it's actually John Kuhn yes who brought to bust open that hole for. And and parts knocking it since John Cook he always coming back to. I think he's he's been applicable to Monty puts it at 5050 at just like 90%. Chance he got you might be a smaller than that went through maybe night it's a little team. Over under 90%. All are under I'll take over. 99.9. 9999. John Kuhn again last year's side right around this time civil see what happens by the way what rip got eighteen snaps. Eighteen snaps last you know not enough eighteen the last enough special teams but not good amount about. And probable that's what robbed of -- he says for the return of Brett booed he says the recovery from his late season torn ACL is gone well according to agent Kevin gold. Booted and working out at Lambeau Field Angeles contract expired when free agency opened. They brought in licked Rick LaMont LD Adam under contract. But they're keeping the door open for who who also chuck was on the 67 Packers as a long snapper he don't party as a long snapper but he did. He did and it was Brent crude because lost efforts are long term in the NFL. This guy here. You really noticed deal or even noticed long snapper until he snaps and develop the holder said or the point is that it. And none of that as happened with either one of the guys this all the guys they brought in here Lovato he was pretty good last year army Wright his week. Because he what he wasn't bad because he was a stampede over people Cecil. I'm good either way and that. You don't notice the long snapper you don't notice the guard to the tackles unless they make a mistake unless there's a holding penalty or something and where the quarterback gets crushed. You don't notice your offensive linemen we're not talking about offensive linemen unless they make mistakes you know we don't ever do chuck in the morning. Whenever like old man out at his old lines lit for the play of TJ Lang. Yeah oh man did he play well. He block well it's the blocked Al really got our butt in with. With a long snapper I think most people don't realize that they have a long snapper that is the same guy snapping the football trenor or whoever. On the field right after the third down. Prior was injury last year did you do had missed a game since 2008. But does eighty years he's been. The longest ever for the Green Bay Packers that is job security right there probably you know I've been I'd been up didn't you know covering the Packers for my entire life. I've never seen Brett who would like would recognize of the walked him. I'd recognize every tanker but I would recognize bread food it became in this stuff like separate from you I'm right here and said hey you know. Mr. you guys for the next twenty minutes on the show people who are you read do. All this right you're the long snapper OK. With it that having on the would you reckon I've done. I wouldn't know Brett good he walked in a Brett Duke Jersey incident is snapping a football from fourteen yards away I would notice them. Now I'll absolutely none. So there you go according to the according to rub the musty John Kuhn and Mike Neal 5050. Bread food 75% come in back and 25% Barkley Corliss Richardson first week that I got here chuck in reaction to my take on Neal is from a Irish row for 24. Like wicket wants to give Mike Neal three years twelve million can we please get someone with a brain in Milwaukee talks sports. I don't think three years twelve million is too much for an outside linebacker who get to sixteen sacks in three years and hasn't missed a game and three C bonds. I think if this is anything wrong with that but at the Ivy League there for some reason meals not to picked up yet and he's not his soul. So he probably give him a lot cheaper of the map. Native if that was the contract that came down. Would have lowly Ole I'd be surprised that it because he's not worked out right now considering what we but I got it saved four weeks law. Let's just hypothetically I think expect Warriors hypothetically but not right now arm the only the only thing is I think he's got and he's got. The first thing I think packer fans thank with Mike Neal well he's got an injury history but as you mentioned Larry's been pretty healthy last three years. He's been real healthy the last three years I mean he wasn't when he first came all under the seat it was like one injury is about the shoulder the mean it was always something with that guy but he's been okay. He's been pretty dang healthy consistent and he's a playmaker but I think they're a buddy what I think they're gonna do is. They are going to replace him with with somebody from a draft. Cheaper and better and and I know that this is all. All looking at Clay Matthews on the outside game and your rotation but I still. I still bill opal the brown I'm not a 100% sold. He's gonna be any on the outside I remind you of the minority on that because I know I talked to says that now. And I believe is gonna move to the outside why did that those people that every day im confident in Sam Barrington Jake Ryan whoever they draft has been. Having that that to me is not a solid in sidelined back in Cory now. Not at all not in any way by the way meals contract i.s last when two years eight million facility and having 312 is not exactly ridiculous. In my mind. Wells and number yeah I would territories that would have or do we get someone with a brain on Milwaukee sports talk. Its powers of be free to check my notification is on Twitter. Alexander appreciate that preaching that it. That appreciate that. And I wouldn't gives him an ideal would be fun wouldn't. It seems pretty logical to me that now at this point don't. They might coming up. Likely to happen it would be upset about it when the Packers haven't cap money as a question asked me what it's early but 1415 million. Still a fifteen million dollars if five million for the draft picks right yep fiber for the draft picks I've got to be 1415 million. They're going to be under the cap again well of course at that of course are right. Coming up to chat with the F president of them walk the admirals as they get set. Where their final home game. Of the of the season of this that their run here for the Calder cup. Hopefully includes a few more home games at the BC as they get set.

So Adam on college where they want and I hope the people about true flicked up more celebration than anything else. I mean winning division titles just don't grow on trees I would have hit it yet just under a great night to stuff. To win it to win a championship in that matter. It was great to cover the work up on the board yeah. Most people don't are excited a couple of double B aborted but that was returned to work a bit boring after.

Got his don't throughout think courier patients with my schedule so we'll correct them turn. Now we appreciate you joining us you know obviously we'd be remiss if we did that you know is as lot of questions about the past. Several weeks since you've in his relieved rob of his duties Rob Jeter. Are are you surprised that all the negative publicity that the the school's getting because it seems that there's more negative than positive things is becoming a U dub him lightly. Yeah I looked really important and I think you know there's a lot of people that work in active but that's absolutely eleven years in. A number of them I think are are continuing true. You know. Put out they're. They're disappointment then I think that's sort of keeping it going and that's too bad where were on the bigger and better looks so if I didn't mention it. Huge opportunity for us and I completely for the institution in our ambition Harlem. Why did you fire rob because some good look at that and they'll say we may the NCAA tournament two years ago things were going to a positive direction but you look at it and say. You know fifth place the last three years we could do better the map. Yeah I think and you know as an athletic director particularly with the program that's your highest profile program you're relying on bird for someone saying it to drive. Driver strategy is and if you do you have to look at on our season and cam you know any of that you need to pick up. A whole whole look at it entirety of that and then and we have to consider whether or not going to advance to an extension. It's think about that but that's our future or at the time to turn the page it retraction. And you know. I've hundred over those years and and the average foot sentient sent them. Are certainly some good things you know absolutely and I'm not in I know instruct item. We felt like. When it's time to turn the page and and if we can. We can do about it. UWM athletic director manned abroad with us here on the fan. Amanda there are a lot of people tweeting questions sweet we extend it to send us their thoughts lot of panther fans because as chuck mentioned there's been a lot of attention drawn in this situation and one of them. With all the budget cuts that are facing the school system right now how does it look. From an outsider's perspective and from yours to pay coach Jeter nearly half a million dollars to sit on the sideline. Yeah well that's never anything you want to do. Yeah I outside you are sitting in my position my colleagues in the position that's not and you ever wanna do don't feel like that's. That's always the best pieces of your front but you also know that you can't. Leave a year. Coach with the here and there. There contract that justice is very unusual and and certainly not fair that person in the program. On the line so he it's. Wanna do but obviously in our industry she quite as bad and there's a reason why it captain. In he talked about you he thought that this program should finish in the top three. What do you base that on that you think that they should be and maybe a top three team contend for title every year what do you see there. Yeah I'm and that's. That's the world in I don't have that that confused about that but that's an absolute obviously a mitigating circumstances occur and that's the diet is that generally speaking. Guess because of what we that's in the apparently. Supported. And the university we believe that we should be competing at that the capital he can regular basis and really every year much there's something that. Sent a rises says it's kind of or it's based on our route to support and resources that that would put into the. Does that coach Jordan no but that the relative and again I understand it's not you know third place of its fourth place you'd you're not gonna. By you know pulled a hawk on coach Jordan but did you when you made the hire that you and the rest of their the higher ups have that conversation that the standard. From whatever coach Jeter standard was it is now higher UW I'm. Yeah not that and the standard at least tiger met at Ellis went out seven this year. We've had conversations. That's that's the first time publicly about it which interestingly has gotten so much. Positive reaction about coming out and pains you know but middle of the pack couldn't get into what we aspire witnessed. You know we wanted to it's a certain that we talked about and actually loved it isn't. Alou competitor coach out he is. He's a competitor and that they're sound player Butler in. From everything I've gathered from people let's and the coach and all he's he's really competitive and that's really high standards and I think you'd excited about that from what I can tell. Amanda what do you say to the booster or the Panthers three and out there who says he notices seven expert we got here. She was trying to push rob out she's meddling and a stop he was doing so a few different things. What do you say that'll allegations right there. You know I would say they're coming from. From one direction not again that there are a lot of emotions are friendships and so that's. That's as people are being open and last with anything else that's so avoid a that they believed so. You know people weren't in our our meetings are pregnant in this day in and day out much and month well actually years so. But we're trying to do that support that program in addition to what it was when I watched it at Torino we actually teach that kind of difficult budget challenges. Actually increased funding so that program and and I've been. Right there and you know not every step of the way so you know people completely that they want true but unless there. Willing and able to gather action and I understand it. Always and it's hard Tim achieved. But would you WM athletic director Amanda brawn here on 1057 FM the fan it's chalk and wicket. Amanda I I don't know the entire process of hiring a basketball coach shot doesn't know the process of buying a basketball coach. What was your role can he take us through briefly what the hiring process was like in with candidates coming inning getting interviews and how you landed on coach Jordan. Well it was that a very thorough process. Reports and you search firm a lot of cant move more quickly they can handle some knowledge of fiction organizational part of that and it didn't happen quickly because. You're student athletes and sitting here camp session and you leadership stand and people understand what future a quiet looks like and then you're recruiting you know that actually recruiting period. The start. Tomorrow so. So it's quick and and the other process the sorrow we talked a lot of people I spent a lot of time on the phone and watching. You know videos. Post game saying whoever is out there and I'm candidates have a lot so it's it was really thorough and that was exciting receiving interest me and turn. How was it made that decision Milan on coached Jordan what what what made a decision what made him the guy. Well you can't contact Aaron. Try to pick yet he them. He's a special person you know he has a profile that really itself. And and all the way here and certainly the Butler should shut for the institution that is simple bubble up. Subdivision institutions also Steve Napoli in the coach and. It's not like at that super competitive very motivational. As good person talk let them and I think he'll he'll be you know that's without. There are people here and there in athletes and poems. Talking with the UWM athletic director Amanda brawn here on the fan Amanda there have been rumors about certain candidates. Having different interviews in the end of those interviews during in a different results. Were you and the chancellor on the same page about Lavelle Jordan from the start or was there are some discussion perhaps. With other candidates in other interviews that maybe you butted heads up. Yeah I mean it's certainly and you know this thing comes down you've got great candidates like we do in there itself. Is that a lot of discussion on it's they're mature in the right choice and got great choices know that that creates. So that's certainly he's he's hurt either our diet and you know I that are back about 23 weeks ago we are hired somebody so there and whenever is that I'm not out there you know I'm going on Twitter but that's what I've told people kept asking how can not like angered it. Hired the person you out that the person that was. Two and a half weeks without so boat and captain. In the search and Sutton and single people calm not let that. Couldn't prior to land and there and then they are so that's the world a house that's uncalled just lexis and actually pretty cool because people are paying attention they're really excited at but it can feel it's important. Okay solve the I mean to visit Syria out there that may be DJ council Berger was taken a job South Dakota State was interviewed and maybe. You wanted him and the chancellor wanted to another guide coach Jordan. As any NF troop. Knowledge. That is true now. And I had been a check with our our legal folks in our hand to make sure that woods. Understanding my applications that can't talk about. Specific people that consider that we talked to a that we interviewed. Again how we landed on the right person the person that's the phils perfect fit for us and. Oh really really excited. Sort of it was a little bored with this is with this guy ever driven present at that. And it don't figure head wind senator Taylor walked into a press conference and took it over. Like you know. I thought he would member of the media I think they had didn't have a -- includes went there and and play I didn't know which one. That was. It was that's quite an experience. And that's a nice way to put it I'm Amanda Ronnie the UW and athletic director joining us here on the fan.

That we have an incredible leader on our staff somebody that can that they allow it to student athletes from cute or not cartman Stan. I he would hit the ground running he inherited in church expect before the content of the work ethic it's incredible it comes from John Beilein and staff which everything I heard about people that come from working with him that's.
