A good evening and welcome to our number three of sports saw a long indicating Gainey and Bobby -- I'm Deke Bellavia Super Bowl MVP the great -- -- -- the radio huddle. At the bottom of the Allen dug back in the NFL on the -- -- was the Washington Redskins called him about the schemes how close it off and RG three and what he's doing in his front office grow. That money topics with a great -- Williams later in the Al operated jaguar opinion poll which of the number one -- has the best chance of winning the NCAA tournament. Is -- the Florida Gators the Virginia Cavaliers Arizona Wildcats all Wichita State's shocker as. You can -- should vote online at WW ago. Dot com Zach -- with the New Orleans Saints -- new five year deal Bobby started in 06. And will continue his career here in a black -- beautiful. Yet Deke I think is stability. And trusts. Think you have to address that streak now. I'm glad it worked out. The Miami dollars -- definitely very existed in sight street. If you look at as -- 31 years of age come August the last three seasons. He was a starter. And I think one thing the and I think. Going forward. I'm that same distance but instead. And navy went all setting that is that having 22 to 23 average rushing attempts per game. I think you might be in a twin 930 arranged kind of like we did and -- indices in the last four games that we play counting the post season we averaged thirty and have. A carries per game he members actually before losing and starting off. That he was like you know tackle eligible you know and try to use utilized as a third tight end the run block. I think alongside -- on the opposite in with Armstead. At tackle I think. Better. Like Armstead in my opinion veteran blocker in Charles brown and and you throw in tax treatment. That hey here's a guide well deserved. You know contract. In the mean it was kind of gone a year to year contract considering -- -- -- it was a seventh round pick if I can recall. All the time in my hand and you know very Smart football player. Very articulate. Good spokeswoman he's dealing with the media. We've had him in here. You know just commenting on a variety of topics alone. You know deserved contract. The Zach Strief and those -- you have a great opportunity now obviously now he produces them come -- season. And finishing career. I'm in a Saints uniform the knowledge of -- man the simple swing. And in in all of us. The brackets everyone's filling out and final 4 march men's final four being held in Arlington Texas. So is basically. VFW Dallas forward area. It's one ladies. He has tournaments are I think -- can be March Madness surrounding a number of teams. Can win this tournament I think I agree with. Kansas coach Bill Self when he made this comment he says look. There's more good teams and less great teams. Get ready to start a tournament he said the difference between a number two seed. And a seven or eight seed is as narrow. As it's ever been. Mostly Abington is that much parity. I think Florida's -- were a lot of consistency could see why. They were number one seed. You look at Arizona Wildcats. -- kind of similar to Syracuse in the being a number one seed Sergi is number three because they tailed off at the end. But Virginia Virginia Cavaliers being -- -- seekers. I think that's not to do it ACC basketball unity and one -- championships they won the regular season and the tournament. That's on and and he did that over. A possible. Number one -- by Michigan are Villanova. You know -- RPI was the eleven. But I think it's high you finish this season and forty decided. Out of Villanova -- so don't write me hey hey good seats for awhile now in LA and and in us face it I mean I know it's can be awfully hard to oval calm. That. I guess in the good way of good stigma. But I mean the only thing that Villanova was when he beat Georgetown thank you I mean now will you when your -- had come on you're you're supposed to be a championship caliber teams -- this year they do so. He had big and you know there's university they playing the fifteenth seed Milwaukee. One universe in Milwaukee and I know Marquette in Milwaukee. And in the united even though there was -- university in Milwaukee in. In the -- am obliged coach if they're able to beat Milwaukee did they play. The winner of UConn in saint -- -- And and beat a -- -- like to have them well at Villanova going to the sweet sixteen and nick in the elite eight. I have Iowa State outlets I was stated few times you know you're -- the -- get a Fox's sports southwest that leniency. Some big twelve basketball. That when Iowa State watching them play at that day they hang with the likes of Kansas and all that Texas anybody within them at three C. So I can look at the cyclones. That defeating for them. Being a would you -- Bad what's it with what. I was at one time more of a college basketball god and am now I'm I'm I'm I'm more -- are already in B caters more to my liking. And it in its innocence always it's a bruise or some people who Proehl. You know strict college basketball don't tend to care for the NBA. And likewise the NBA vs college but when you think of all these tournaments and all of these on his basketball players. Very few probably pro ball right there if you won't play pro ball so compared. Do they begin play pro ball that for a rude awakening he has to be ACC it's far more difficult to make it when you think about the number of basketball and you know Monday can. You could be a professional and be in this deviate -- are -- I think you can make agree eleven. As the Q -- -- from you know. I want to play enough and Europe. And won the championship. Oh McCain yep. For my degree oh monogram and -- -- pronouncing that right. You've both been playing over a full out and there's access no big you make it six figures colon -- that that's a good job you know you know you might wanna be in the states but. -- you gotta do you gotta do normally basketball and again as eleven on us on have to be in the NBA but the talk about challenges. I didn't realize this. You know look Louisiana Lafayette who they have to play them at three Creighton. In their first round they going to be facing Doug McDermott. Who's the nation top score. He's averaging 27 point two -- six point nine round of golf and just on a global sport in Australia last week is on so to about a challenge. I'm pagan and that's another homer pick on Clinton picked Louisiana Lafayette to win you know that a fourteen seed over. If you wanted to see first if. Teammate in people Bobby to go to Yahoo! you could win a billion dollars if you correctly -- each game right in the tournament. The NC ten billion not a million a billion won by opening Quicken Loans it teamed up. When you NCAA bracket -- it's the Quicken Loans billion dollar bracket challenge the rules I had to go to Yahoo! created an account. And they won the first fifteen need contestants. To inner. And of course to be interesting to see the chances of this happening is if a lot of perfect bracket right nine point two. Quinn trillions. To want. And those that even economically as alien to want to I would rather that's why award but -- back and well why why don't while one of the ones he put. One. -- to -- -- there isn't one thing. Yet -- and a point two Quinn two team. To -- a -- of it is -- -- it is that we -- -- going to the foul line. Bracket like he's bracken -- at that -- -- if they watch and they want to these these brackets like me and -- used to go to school play Beagle my grandma. He's had a big guy he'd be one lady behind them all. Now why that icing on her all bases on seventeen caused over this is big and only what you would all have different you know I'm -- I feel like it. -- -- run bingo and especially all one caught both India bracket Merida while I was so deep if. And I'm bracket -- and -- those get on because the most I've ever done and have a point you know I. Nose to all league and -- -- two brackets where did you figure that one -- that in addition to cause yeah I wanted to -- well this ships that you -- But if you look toward I think Olympic. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I what I I -- I hobble hate the raging case to win all of my bracket and I guarantee I won't been. -- still come within three weeks of your of your -- I that's how crazy this tournament he has yet watch. -- -- upset treatment and you play alike at Baylor and Nebraska it don't matter once you when you win one game -- it dummy teams of the past who knows full eight Virginia commonwealth. Wichita State in the it's not and how once we want it all bets are vehicle rolling in -- in that role as the they ought to Mason George Mason wasn't he was pulled them -- bugle they'd play this last night it would. Billy -- and Jim -- was sitting there basically saying how could George Mason get to -- -- again they wanted you to come off a win. And boy did not call cancer that was a year big baby LSU went to the final four. And a fraud wanna win it that year that was -- George Mason you that you put him on a man and in the ranking now of course go to University of Miami. By the ego would you do is put on one side of bracket if you don't put Louisiana Lafayette Purdue and make in the final four lower Manhattan. In the man maybe put -- law demand and Jasper. If you go would. Milwaukee vs Manhattan in the championship -- -- I was in the versions and you know some events in Milwaukee -- -- -- in house and knows that yet they've been. I think like coach self said. There was -- and number two seed and celery seed is so narrow more than most he's ever seen as is that much parity. The big B Anderson is the you know how close you become you know actually one some money with time -- I don't imagine David Harris again here via those and we did in the top of his locker room now and equipment on the -- -- -- my -- -- -- -- Safe haven this out -- -- -- -- -- come back this sports talk on WW and welcome back he is the KG -- am Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia LA shoes in the an antique.

The page of one billion gallons now 1000001 billion dollar prize to anyone. Who could fill out a perfect bracket. Big I didn't realize -- -- how hard that is actually do. Ryan and you in what would you raised on Yahoo! insomnia and wanna he had one of the first fifteen made an educate a lot more to one. On via his Achilles and one Brackett -- via. And Eagles want to enhance some contest that way you can oneself and people like. The guy like sixty sandy different names and the an accountant a goal and they'll do that I mean it there obviously from a numbers perspective. They have great chances like the amateur and what one bracket and -- imaging and to -- that they have a better team and having extra bingo cards -- assessment if that's right the only let my grandma and values and long -- overlook almost similar -- Albanians that they -- Begin. You know within is that to you look colon Virginia cited a bracket while he stuck on -- -- yet but you don't -- people thought. Last Sunday over Ralph Sampson was -- that they would disappointed that they were number one seeding kinda. Thought that he -- Michigan Villanova. But that -- his Michigan loss to Michigan State I think they gave them Virginia because in Al only one ACC but also won the time it's obeys its almost like what they deserved it and once you know -- you. And yet and it now and then -- Villanova. But I get a I think they wanted to give it to Michigan Villanova. The Villanova or whatever they a big news at this schedule I think that's that they have. Going for them that's -- the end of being I know a two seed when you look at. Virginia on the east side of the bracket. Look at tournament time and who always saves like they come to play. And they won their tournament they've beaten Michigan that being Michigan State. Number four seed come tournament time it's like you know they gonna be ready. And you almost surprise that they don't make it at least the sweet sixteen and not only eight and then also. The look of Harvard Harvard and number twelve seed you know we talked about.
