Also some interesting comments are the most that he has said so far about being pursued for head coaching jobs from Brent venables. The duties defensive coordinator at Clemson in its comments yesterday it will pass those along to you what. He said kinda uninteresting bear. NFL had a game last night's rock gosh Weiler came in in relief and look good. For Trevor Ximian. So we'll look at that Billy Napier remember him as the new head coaching job. Mostly about that coming up on the show. And we'll take your calls your text in your tweets a 444773776. Text line 71307. When you send your text to us. Beijing's security SPN at the beginning so that we concede the text that's how it works. And we're on Twitter Addie SP in upstate. I Alonso I know you didn't watch the basketball game last night as the sole your social media post about. Star Wars actually I got home was able to let's say yeah okay good yeah. Star Wars. You liked. Pretty good movie I was very pleased with that I will not go into great detail because you don't want me to what happens at the end none ever mocked him I was just getting. But but but some people die but some people to live some people were happy some people sat alone uses along with the it is you all Star Wars movie ever used two and a half hours kindness not terrible and we paid the extra money. Are you did they went yeah VIPs thing we did. While a different. If well you get. Behind the scenes thing that starts out before the movie so and you get so much trading cards welcome. So that was promised money. 36 dollars and now you know let's think about this on the way in particular Josh wolf paid. Certain amounts of money to go golfing because he loves it drive you know and if you have the money to go do something that you love why not do it. Daily Pamela Taylor 41 dollars gulf feel a little zip video and it it was an enjoyable two and a half hours of how with my son and a great movie I think. Probably my favorite movie of the year which says a lot cause events on the good movies but I did get to see the second half of via basketball game. I thought about that. Josh you watched the basketball and I did. You rated apologized to launch a ball. That's funny. That assists whose dreams and the reason mainly due to back more okay. You had a thirteen points. He had this year eleven assists. Two steals. External. My goodness he had fifteen rebounds is that right now eight rebounds a scam I was adding his total to his defense of yet one offensive and seven defense or rebounds and eight rebounds. Passed a bad day for any shot five for eleven almost 50% from the field three for eight from three points. Thirteen point Kamal. Listen even LeBron. Raced. Blondes a ball here's what LeBron said after. It's always team that's ball crystal ball for some to move forward. This is a team game. And why you're so caught up in this whole individual things. So you know between games so overlooked. Within. You know my own corner is into the super. These are really good player so says LeBron just he's so full Rosie going go on Iowa cleaning barriers something. Pieces of the team player and and and not. I have nothing to do when Alonso ball and everything to do with his little T enough. With Karim because he's getting heckled every game now look. Well let me qualify this OK LeBron is going to win the MVP in a landslide this year. He's gotten which in order for Cleveland it's funny how he mentioned. This is a team game. But if Cleveland to have him they'd probably what they'd be over. Right now. Quite honestly. He means that much. Aside Alonso is LeBron. Know what it here's what he's doing he's tried to protect the kids. Am I giving someone he's trying to game the granddad Lee figure. That's trying to be your her what he said when he said. In all of that noise and it's a team game in this and the other. Because LeBron knows he's getting ready to be his teammate did get that line before and to play with ya gotta be fun to play exactly right well you get that chance and he's gonna get a stop and other chants LeBron is out of there. Okay and he's going to be additional brought the rock. This time next year. And they're getting a jump on their level. Man crush with the joke OK while those said he patterned his game after LeBron. I'm still waiting on that game to show up. Because there's nothing a lot of those game that even resembles. LeBron James listen. You and I can pattern our career after the great Greg McKinney we're never gonna get there but we comparator arm pattern career and I like that now he'll look at greatness in you go that's who I wanna be look that's one thing it's one thing to say you want to reach a certain level but you can never. Pattern yourself. It came the closest. Okay Kobe said he and his game after Jordan he came the closest. Art but there's only one LeBron James Hahn's low ball will never ever being that good now. Eye your right he won't what are the chances who's going to be that good. Nobody maybe not. Or maybe you want urging guys somewhere in Colorado but Alonso is not going to be that guy but now. But he's he's he's doing all right he looked all right last night and they talked. After the game on the court and LeBron tried to shield. His mouth so that lip readers and cameras can pick up the others Jersey over his mouth. And gave some comments to blogs a ball as I asked him after the game what did he say he said many old business. And you'll businessman. Not gonna tell you and same thing from Alonzo they ask gamble was sent wouldn't say. The next years to. See you next year. Coming your way. I think it. He said dobbs balsa James didn't tell me any thing. LeBron had 45 points twelve assists twelve rebounds his 59 triple double of his career. Bob by the way lawns a ball almost had a triple double. Number barely must've been my accident because of DOS and see some of the things. Pig like at the rebounds to doing that had the assist them point. And it's pretty good game to pretty competitive. Game 121 to 112 was the final of the cavaliers. They get the went. Kevin Love by the way there's really good. 28 points particular. He always does he does great human right she's. A new there are there other big crack coming in and then he becomes Casper the Friendly Ghost come playoff time could you never hear from again. I've been telling you guys about Brandon Ingram to did you watch him. Yeah I was going back and forth actually he looked good I mean entire lakers team they're so young men and they have a lot of promise compared to what they've been the last few years they look like they're going to be pretty piece in the future. When they have LeBron next year it will be really get there. Excuse me in six months. Beth. Ingram ten for 1526. Points. On the night for the LA lakers. So mom is all preview there of those guys being on the same court that all I know is I'm just go out the lakers took. Long it'll ball. Am left Jason Jason take them along. That's almost well yeah I'm I'm sure you war. I'm sure you are also day yesterday I agree with you on that he came out pretty good in that deal. Still. Apple. Alonso looked pretty good let's watch the whole game when I launched on he looked pretty good. So LeBron costs one of us want to look pretty good. Last night.

After LeBron and Alonso squared off last night LeBron gets the win. As the cavaliers. Take that game. By nine points Billy Napier remember him former quarterback at Furman. Former coach at Clemson. Got us head coaching job we'll tell you about a coming up it's the huddle on ESPN upstate just under way for Friday will be right back. Welcome back into the huddle this is ESPN upstate it's Friday afternoon already halfway through the month of with Greg McKinney. Coach Josh Phillips and Alonso. You join the conversation at any time call 8444773776. Text line 71307. News keyword ESP I already am irritated about the bowl season. And we haven't had first game. We're gonna talk about our picks next hour for the six bowl games this weekend the one of those bowl games. Is the Las Vegas Bowl. Boise State and Oregon. You guys. By you guys I mean Josh Alonso and Alex. The former intern. Always with more state Boise State now with the organ. And now comes word. That Royce Freeman. Who rushed for 1475. Yards sixteen touchdowns. Number seven all time in FBS with 5600 yards career rushing. Has chosen to set up again. Big loss. Mario crystal ball the new coach at Oregon announcing that. Yesterday after my picks were. He has no country junior's number seven ranked. Draft eligible running back the upcoming NFL draft. Royce. Is not going to point. Funny list now who's not going to plot. Can we get that we released require these teams to submit that list ahead of Bob. Yeah big time you put that equipment and find out who the train Marines he's slow on the crowd this games this games tomorrow and you know somebody else that Thursday for a Saturday game that he's not gonna. And I'm surprising announcement at all. Do you arm. Accept this decision. That some of these players are right. There we James is already said he's not blame for Florida State John Elliott Texas has three guys are not a couple of yeah they won't three guys at Texas. Don't pick Texas than some money picked X I took him to accept a go to guy and area by damage refill butter. And as we feel just a little better. I just wanna know whose plan is not play in more than a day in advance can we do that. Is that too much to ask. They knew this. And Oregon before yesterday. That Royce Freeman was not gonna play. Tournament. Billy Napier do you feel vulnerable yet again. Shouldn't play during at a opener for the two Billy Napier remember him former quarterback at them firm and office coordinator for a while Clemson. And now. He's been an Arizona State as their office to coordinate. There are about to announce him as the new coach yet you can decide what to call it used to be you LL Louisiana Lafayette now supposedly just Louisiana. I asked okay east of that Louisiana. At Louisiana. They're going to announce Billy Napier as their head coach raging regions. Out so good for him. Right. Com. What Clemson fans think Billy Napier wow. But well well he's won on the ball robs and it's a matter. Right I mean today I think he's credited with doing pretty good job for the sun doubles Arizona State. And he has recruited. Extensively in the state of Louisiana. I was numb at Alabama too so he recruited a lot of Louisiana they're. And he'll be the replacement for mark cut its best fired after seven seasons at Louisiana so Billy Napier gets a job there. Feel bad for markings and planes told to Mississippi State now is our right yeah. Is that a better job and head coach at Louisiana it's going vastly. More money. Probably about saying the moon. In other Sun Devils under Billy Napier improved from last in the pac twelve in yards per play to number eight. Sodium and middle of the pack so they get better offensively under Napier so he gets I think coaching gear again. We will see how. Billy does that has not been announced just yet. But multiple sources are reporting that. That's what's going to happen. I had the Louisiana formally known as Louisiana Lafayette for Billy Napier. Going to be out there are new head coach also in the college football front. District attorney's office in Cleveland county Oklahoma has determined that criminal charges are not Warrenton against Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson. There was a police investigation into whether he sexually assaulted a woman who filed an emergency protective order against him the district attorney said. The evidence including interviews with a woman's friends and text messages. Exchanged between her and Anderson suggests that the encounter was consensual. So bomb. That is good for Oklahoma nothing no comment yet from the university. But he is Oklahoma's leading rusher 960 yards eleven touchdowns and of course they play Georgia and college football playoff. So. Well but the good news on that front for the Oklahoma Sooners. And we got word out of West Virginia. That will Greer is coming back for his senior year will not go to the end NFL draft big news out. They got Smart of him. Started out of Florida of course. Had a big year 34 touchdown passes threw for almost 3500 yards this year was the big twelve newcomer of the year. Ben Alderson the coach said. His decision to return makes it a great day for West Virginia football. And they finish seven and five this year. They play in the heart of Dallas bowl against Utah off the day after Christmas. You turn up pretty good for West Virginia right. Not so much for former. But for West Virginia and he's coming back. You remember when he was at Florida they were undefeated. Then got a now I think there were eight know at the time and then he got. Popped for an over the counter PED and had to sit out Florida tanked and now Jim Mac ones back on his cattle ranch in Montana. Now. Up passcode West Virginia so maybe they'll have law. A chance to improve off 75 season on next year with will Greer coming back. Yeah he'll be in the discussion Losman to thank you threw 34 touchdown this year had a great year. Kid can play. Meant. He was seventh and the FBS in touchdowns. For regular season this bastard. I as back to the phone to talk to herald next hire a welcoming the auto.

It's definitely Christmas music movie and the best part is Josh as though they're trying to design it and I mean there's no question there's no argument. Yeah they both wrong. I didn't know what was once the debate. A lot of people were saying die hard is not a Christmas movie well that's it. Now it happens on Christmas Eve right.

I mean it won't what do you have to be the where somebody gets reconciled was somebody else who else. But it is only argument is that it needs to be about Christmas and it's not really bow Christmas is just happening at Christmas. Would you say that campus as a Christmas movie or silent night deadly night. Both the Wentworth that are Santa are simple like creatures killing people I mean it's still technically Christmas movie. You gov. Dot com did a poll on die hard and only 31%. Said that down. Any movie not specifically about Christmas like diehard. Not Christmas. 31% said they were so.
