I down I came in thinking you know this is going to be great but during the parade in it was probably right before the trade got to us I'm standing there at my sister and we had a front row seat which was awesome we are right there on the gate got some high fives got one from gear blind. A great video Michael Kendrick stance of Ronald Darby. The my sister Karen I've got to from the Gerber I did I don't feel that I hit the video recorder right is used combats equipped by sequoia but I got it. And my sister turned to me at one point Reza Prius coming towards us and she said. This is crazy. We're here celebrating the Eagles wine. The Super Bowl in this trophy is ours I kept hearing people say that on the way we listen to talk radio on the way and anomaly back. It's hours no one can take that away from us and at all to sort of hit me once and see in the the ticker tape rained down it was it was great and what was. Most special about for mean I watched the Super Bowl in my house here in Richmond wasn't able watch with my family. But to be able to share the parade. Yeah my sister my mom heard the two biggest Eagles fans that I now and my mom especially I'm 24 I've suffered through some Eagles seasons com. But my mom has suffered to a lot of a bad football for the eagle she's with her whole life for the small she's seen everything else but. I looked at some mommy finally got to see your boys parade down broad street at the same thing us. To my dad get a night I called and I said pot even wait forever and now you're exactly right and anybody's gotten to do that and hopefully you will in your lifetime. I still remember certain things are remember about a lame but I always remember my sister and I being together the entire day and what takes people are you go in different directions. I'm a sister still lives in the Philadelphia area but for not spending tired in the parade my cousins coming from different parts of the country and we on and getting tripped up now talking about it but yet. Yet. We all found each other was crazy Roca and from different parts of the country were fighting each other on that street corners celebrating Phillies. I'm just the way Paulie was yesterday with his family Greg if you go kid could he can enjoy yesterday. We move on to the NFL all season Jimmy grapple those big deal alone tackle that we'll do our fire away Friday because we had back to discuss. And yes while we have that going on that we had the NBA craziness yesterday they were they're trying to steal the thunder from the Eagles goes the brawn James. But like the final scene of the godfather Manny has just taken people out moving people all around. But did the cavaliers get better we'll have that for you coming up. Put numbers 3450910. Twitter question at west fox sports 910. The poll question is out there now that we are. Now that we are done with the football season now there were going into our first we get to know football what gets you through the next thirty days to March Madness is it college football. Is that the Winter Olympics is it the NBA or is it pitchers and catchers reporting you can go vote. At fox sports Richmond dot com rubbing a little Winter Olympic spot as the opening ceremonies are going on. But this is Paula we celebrate yesterday at the parade was his Philadelphia Eagles there can be some celebrating going on Charlottesville tomorrow night. Very interesting matchup last night duke North Carolina always good North Carolina getting the wind tomorrow night Virginia. With the looming right now than being the number one team in the country. They were welcome in Virginia Tech who needs this game and before that game gets going at 615. The best of these we'll start with ESPN's college game day into John Paul Jones arena and joining us now on the big fan this guy it's great to have Reese Davis on from ESPN and ESPN's college game day Reese so nobody could join us thanks to make a top voice here in Richmond. I have been happy to do what we're looking forward to getting back to Charlottesville we've been there a couple of times in the atmosphere has been. I tremendous vote ties for the game to ensure in the morning and obviously be the atmosphere in the arena Saturday night will be tremendously well. You have a unique sports crowd there last night with duke and North Carolina and I love your first question to. You can North Carolina and the answer was it always matters and and you're gonna have a unique crowd tomorrow. Can you describe compare. A Saturday in Charlottesville game day compared to a Saturday afternoon in the fall which would game day in football it both are special but how are they different. I think there is a larger magnitude. And football obviously the crowds are bigger but. Think the one thing that's different is there is no single day. At a basketball. He's in debt is as important as any day. Any Saturday in a football league can be potentially as it pertains. To pursuit of the championship so. I think the cause of that there's the healing. Virtually every Saturday and football that this could be to date that changes everything and you know I know some people but you know Billick complaint about the told them unaudited buttered popcorn you know but that they are not really true that up. Everything can matter it's like game of musical chairs. And somebody's going to be that without a speed and you never know when the music might stop this year for instance. The music stopped in Iowa City unexpectedly coral high as they were left without the you don't get that same type of Spain and basketball. Because. A duke and Carolina as awesome as that was last night they're gonna play again they might quit third time depending on how they turn out you ACC tournament. So. You know it. It's it was just a little bit different I think because of the number of games and the magnitude of the Saturday of football but both have their own characteristic I mean there's an intimacy to basketball. But you don't happened football that makes it a little. You know little closer spiel because of the proximity to their two. So there are you know both are great and you you put it perfectly broker are terrific they're just different. West McIlroy fox sports nights and ESPN's Reese Davis College game day John Paul Jones arena while reset the table for what's in store for who fans but Reese says. You've done your homework and I know you talk about the whose every Saturday morning love watching you guys. Virginia could end up being number one most likely they were in this game to be number one team in the country. You've seen Tony Bennett teams of the past with Malcolm broad Dan and Joseph Harrison Anthony Gil. How's this you'd be eighteen different TO. You know what. It's funny you say that because I was thinking this morning in shows like if they need to think about more important things but all I ask what has Tony that because we're doing. We're doing. Game day obviously this week in the not calling the Virginia game on Tuesday night. And this is and historically. Good defense historically great decrypt up to this point yet all of those names you mentioned all of those seem to be an excellent deep into instant. You know I don't. It's kind of hard to say how they're different they don't seem that once we haven't got quite broad and but you know how guys improvement has been sensational will conclude Bernard are terrific player or them so I don't know they've just seen the senate. And all the pieces work together and is Sony's ability to get them. To play defense use my body that green Burke. Praised their connected. On defense which is something that we saw out. Both in last night is good as both our struggle with so little bit it's really really remarkable I mean they are. You know they are good at the quintessential constrictor snake it you know they don't. They don't necessarily strike yet get your right out of the gate Noah. That you would let. Twenty to two run not utility to sort squeeze quite proud of the over the course of overcoat course of forty minutes and it usually doesn't take the full forty you're usually. I UC scientists surrender. From team a no audit and a little bit earlier than that they'd. Noted it's very frustrating for the bottle and we're like what their arms to not play anymore but you see the frustration come in because of the low that was nature of their defense and you know how he's been able to replace parts in militant group has put together what at least statistically appears to be is that the terms. You know is there's been a remarkable thing. Reese I laugh when people called the show and they say the media like we're all one collective brain real things the same way. You know we are the US are on your door your book Mario a neighbor and it provokes I don't know recent I had a pre show meeting where we are gonna say the exact same thing so yes we are we all the media and the same thing with ESPN ESPN dot dot dot. Virginia has gotten this label of their boring and I know Seth Greenberg unloaded the other day to my colleague David teel a daily press. When you hear Virginia when he Reese Davis here's Virginia is boring when it's your reaction to that. I think it's so like it's like flavors of ice cream. You know some people like some flavors and other flavors that don't care or. And he'll let you know I'm going to be very honest with you you like what you ball up down the court. And maybe giving up a basket every now and then in order to you know grab the ball back get back nine. And pick up the template in Virginia tiger flavor net OK there's there's nothing wrong with that. But it's it's been very effective. Met that have played in the last time I checked the the object of the game was too wet and Virginia that met at a remarkable level. I think. To me because I like basketball I appreciate it beat that I'm not gonna you know not that he would tell you did I don't joy. You know I'd a 9288. Game more than a 4341. Game might do. But I don't think I don't think it played boring I think they need they are good sites in the way they play. And I think their defense is really one thing to watch you like. Effective basketball. I don't like the opposite you'd get it every now and then at a little higher clip to be up but up but I I enjoy and appreciate what they do want to be sent to them well. Reese Davis ES being game day west mackerel or fox sports ninths and big picture here as we get into the weekend and I believe it's tomorrow morning or late afternoon. You could have the selection committee released its first sixteen of the top sixteen teams. Your colleague I was listening to France for Chile was on with mark Packard and a day and and pac man estan. How many teams could end up and schools to possibly end up in the final four and for Sheila said thirty and what war oh attacker with low. I ask you Reese Davis how wide open as this thing out LA teams could end up in the final four this year. I. I don't know. Participate thirty because you were conducting they're separated regardless of what happened earlier this week are Virginia Villanova Purdue. And and I don't Villanova produce a loss to Villanova got injuries and Purdue was not gonna win every game they sort of let one get away the other night. So I think they're viewing what is separated himself duke is the most talented team but they've got they've got some issues right now. Most talented opted to. I would sell probably say the number would be would be. In that range and quality between twenty or thirty but. You know this is not that they're all the same the reconnect say that is because this seems like the you're that you're going to have. In South Carolina from last year AA Wichita later be you come from much lower seed get in you know a maybe there'll be an under seeded Kentucky keen to know now not to back to save like 2014 when did Turkey went as an AT. And so I you do the math and does that mean that everybody one through raider one and a chance. I don't know that I believe that I probably put the number a little bit smaller than thirty yard yes but it's a lot of it is going to depend on the path. Because there might be eighteen to right now at that'll really see that he make the final four but. You have well placed. Based plants in other parts of the bracket and opened up for them they get there you ought to say yup the thing is I think it's kind of hard what I say that I don't. By any stretch of the imagination. Think that you know there are 24 to thirty Keane took all the shame. You know I just think if probably that there are teams that are good are not that they may be get a break in their path near near. The baker heard that they could find a way to sort of final port in great just right. Virginia and Virginia Tech tomorrow ESPN and yes oh by the way does the conversation about Virginia possibly being number one on the other side of this he got the Hokies who need this game. They're they're living in the bubble real estate some brackets out a seven man some have more on the outside. You don't wanna be living on the bubble so big game Virginia Tech with as they begin his big road stretch. Reese Davis the game day crew Reese electoral this one set the stage what's coming up tomorrow on game day. Well we're gonna be it's going to be great CNET think we're hoping to give away from the state farm money which we done it that you can't have been to Virginia judge made at half court shot when the money and no one has made it cents we will let it Virginia. We're hoping that you create shows them how to shoot will certainly talk about the that the that you mentioned with. Selection committee putting out their top seeds will hit on that we'll talk about. We'll talk about the part of Virginia's defense just are good or bad. I got this one more a couple of surprises leaders' debate right now it's whether we will find a way discrete belonged to open the show too will Kuwait City. The global. And I did that that's who hunt right there can't miss that right off the top of the hour bright and early tomorrow game day and I know it was a long night with North Carolina duke and and travel and race thanks so much look at foresee tomorrow. Felt good Seth Greenberg streaking to launch would be something dead. Everyone would want want to make sure they don't miss yet no one would want the Bible what what what a conundrum that would be.

Poll he's up point after the new feature on fox sports Richmond dot com Reese Davis joining us as Virginia Virginia Tech in this this is my main event of the weekend. Is the one that I can't wait for this is going to be a good game because for both reasons and I don't last on these two got together Virginia Woolf. They put it all Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. And Virginia Tech has not forgotten. The Virginia Tech come off that when he gets NC state. I know I'm look at the brackets out as right now somebody said who's the bracket Dodgers who has them on the way out. Get out I'm looking through here and I've seen mostly in last war in there. First war by not in the play are the that's great. For now it's the middle of February. Are you serious or you'll keep spending your Tellme don't don't get on Virginia Tech because there on the bubble guys have been through this before 2011 you don't want to be on the bubble. Get away from the bubbles stay away from the bubble ghost busters don't cross the streams this time of the year or in March don't be on the bubble. You don't Charlottesville. Not a Virginian you pull that upset. Did you have now bubble. Virginia Tech meanness in Virginia. And we're talking about this earlier. The chance to be number one in the country in the regular season in the polls when you're sitting in the middle Federer I don't know how much that means to outside. People outside of Virginia and days are outside of being a Virginia cavalier fan. But if you look at the Virginia program the best school program over the past ten years I moved in Charlottesville Dave Lito was there neighbor come up Pete Gillen years. And that is a little spunk there with the date later years when it got to the tournament they got to the second when they get that the that the weekend they got to the Sunday. They lost Tennessee. But after that the years were not kind. There's ten years in the ground that program he checked all certain boxes. You've won the ACC you won the ACC tournament. You got to be number one seed now you've become consistently in the tournament and you've become the number one seed multiple times. You've got to the elite eight. Which I haven't done certain things. This year eject off another Boxee went down Cameron indoor you not all duke Tony Bennett finally beat duke get duke. It after the first Donna Virginia's program history since 1995. There's got the box is elected check off and yes one is getting to the file port yes winning a national championship. But. Mr. we'll show it's something that's not been done the past 35 years so you get number one in the polls you save that newspaper he got a by the times dispatch. The nice today this was the week that we were number one. Now fortunately the way trends go. It's been number one year eventually gonna get knocked off and I know the number one that you really want is the number one seed. And being number one in the end Stella that's some special if you can get the number one in the regular season polls. Especially when you've not done in three net decades. As Reese Davis alluded to there. This would be predict the second. Third now second consecutive year the men's basketball selection committee. Tomorrow will reveal its top sixteen teams they want a sneak pre the sneak peek this happens more 1230 CBS. They will unveil the top sixteen. We'll keep. I know probably due to top sixteen right now. I know they're trying to make this a big to do but I got on my horse earlier this week. Give us what and I didn't get this through recess probably shouldn't I would lobby is opinion on it. I would love to see it every week every Monday night ESPN SC BS give us the selection committee's top 68. Give us who you think sixteen. K you go look at the poll right now. And in all honesty more people were interested after you get done who's the top four seeds most people adjusted items on the back again. O'Keefe as well nowhere basically the selection committee minority palm those guys are well Keating camp on those guys have a really good clue that. Still you or your strip from the horse's mouth where we sit would you guys where we stand right now. How many 810 teams are and that's what you want it. That's three get everybody go through to top sixteen right now you know did our fives you can go to some of the mid majors against Xavier is very good. There's what you would include everybody. As a keyboardist hours saint Bonaventure is it and we know Rhode island's going to be but we saint Bonaventure. So I like that they give us a glimpse elected they give it says an appetizer but don't don't give me sixteen give me 68. Tamar talk thirty CBS six.

The football this weekend so what's getting you through March Madness college basketball Winter Olympics pitchers and catchers or the NB. 60% still saying college hoops will get them through the next thirty days get a good vote by exports Richmond dot com now. We already into the NFL offseason and order had two major moves you've got out Smith. Trades at Redskins Jimmy drop Lowe's deal yesterday five years a 137 million. I don't have too much data on this at this this comes as a surprise to nobody Beirut if there was any question about to be ground below remaining in San Cisco got answered yesterday. Five years a 137. And a half million. Averaging 227 and a half million per year guarantees 27 daycare and he's a 74 million and I know. This makes him the highest paid quarterback in the NFL yadda yadda yadda. Makes him the highest paid quarterback in the NFL for now. Until Kirk cousins and then he'll be the eyes big quarterback until. Erin Rogers or Matt Ryan or somebody yells I. This used to be a fun topic it really did it it's not a topic anymore because so many people get banter about I can't believe he's done is paid quarterback. Understand when you look at numbers and wonder how Jimmy grappled gets this dealer Kirk cousins gets his deal. It's not merit the drives deals its leverage. That's what it is it's I need a quarterback. Mike contract is up a team wants me you're gonna get paid. And I don't know another topic that seems to be now bordering on boring. What does it stop window quarterbacks get paid this much of what they stop getting paid this much Paul ESP that earlier. Remember this this is a very common thing they keep in my back pocket when discussing. And that is. Hate it takes one team. It just takes one team to make an offer and it takes two teams to make a market. It somewhere wants to pay the gonna pay it. Think the one team until you get all 32 NFL owners saying not gonna do this to you have collusion. It just takes two things one desperate team and it takes two teams to make a market or you gonna pay him as well that's what we're repair and that going to pin this on cable countering that. That's what it is. As Virginia ground below the one interesting note about the Jimmy grapple and deal where could impact if your team is looking at a free agent quarterback. Is that it's only four guaranteed but according to shepherd it's nine B million in the first three years of moving the money here at the terms back loaded front loaded. Five year deal and to be grapple has got plenty of gas left in the tank. So five year deal and these things always get restructured but 74 million guaranteed the notable parties it's a heavy amount of money up front. There's Jimmy G knocked out Al Smith with the Redskins the quarterback carousel just starting to turn the two big moves one. Meaning get the football season and I guess if you wanna say yesterday afternoon marked the beginning of the end up all season this deal goes down. We market Richman mark you on fox sports 910. Welcome marred the glory serve. All questioned challenger got the big talk of 500 we have heard movement that. I know give me political burger I. I did not miss it the wasn't a mark meet the neatly inside out sausages made what's the why you gotta leave things out of five people like yourself call and say hey. This is what gets me through the next couple days so it's NASCAR you it's it's the count down to Daytona. Our right and now is it NASCAR in general or is it is a Daytona it was at NASCAR in general to get you through to March Madness. They're total for the farmer to start those. Or her to purpose to welcome such a big build a Republican for the NASCAR people in general we have been told him or her. All right my man appreciate the focal put it on the board we will write ins or in this business Collins. I just got to you leave things out he you beat people. For Daytona and NASCAR embarking on new interest in time where a lot of marquis names are out in their. They're looking to the younger generation you know Kyle Busch does not like it. Eddie ball questions up deal you tell us or you write and what gets you futile March Madness got a lot of basketball today. Dated all VCU I know fans are unhappy right now it's a tough pill swallow. Dealing losing. But as I used the word earlier this program has endured trauma. You've taken hits but it's got three coaches in order for years some BC your fans and I don't I have to watch Michael off fan base is I'm guilty of this. Not talk shows do this it's like when you guys cause the media galaxy fans. Because as I saw my Twitter timeline yesterday there's some fans defending BC you say look this is what happens. And it was a growing year some fans going to the extreme questioning the program. Will pairing of Mike Rose has the right guy. And yet I I can't tell that three quarters of the season. Is micros need to be tougher on the guys maybe have a quicker hook maybe not to stop the style work you can't tell and three quarters of a season. Does this program's endured trauma. And honestly if you go back it will wade would have stayed. And recruiting class would have been in total. It was still borderline this team is gonna make the NCAA tournament even if there was no major coaching change we get to magic coaching gains in four years. Time gets yet. NBC president's bold and it's dangerous when you have expectations. VCU Dayton tomorrow night Richmond at saint Bonaventure. The two topics they're de Monte bucking him out of the hospital because cramps. Will he go is he able to go to mart out against saint Bonaventure that's still up in the air and the rams hopeful that Jonathan Williams will be back able to go tomorrow night coverage begins at 530.

Final call on the poll question the thing that gets you through the next thirty days to March Madness. But no NFL. But he got basketball the Winter Olympics. Pitchers and catchers reporting or the NBA at the trade deadline yesterday where LeBron James. I it's far less that is that it does it mean more picture on where LeBron James look at the stat sheet it says when these guys again. And the crazy part is the brawn James yesterday and was by the Cleveland Cavaliers could open up the door for him to be a Los Angeles Laker. Interesting interesting to ask the question is for now did they do enough to compete with Golden State. Adding maybe they did the best job that they could to compete with gold statement. And Boston. But to media NBA seasons gonna come down to Houston Golden State in the Western Conference.
