We're doing great and just thank you for the time first of all coach and I know your run and listen congrats on on a great season. But coach I must sell I was. We were a little bit disappointed yesterday we got Memphis is non conference schedule with came out. Beat writer put out the teams are plant. You guys born on a coach Larry you talked about let down city brother I know you've talked about it is that something you see in the futures may be something we can read news that that Memphis Arkansas Robert. Without. There during the course taught respect and I have talked about the urgency to. Our regional Mets series and so hopefully. We give some start to match here. Where they were to get in there this year by. Also this year peak next to because of a particular. This war on that topic users deal this is great. Match our forums are states patent and aren't just pretty big games of the past have always been great precision. So you think we could see Memphis Arkansas next season. Well as social yes sort of all yes we're working on that as we speak as a matter of fact. Also in terms of the historical significance of Memphis Burke and vs Arkansas why is that important why is important to renewed. Artistic approach regional centers and regional game I think is one that means there. A great tension nationwide. Because we protect our heart worries of properties and they have a great teams vocal track was very when John came through there. Or some band here. This great basketball games sort of speak your option Metz visitor to their. I know we love Messi as players we dressed you know. Players on our team don't submit is one warm national championship sent. Albeit in yeah. Horsepower that Missouri lost art that you VP Bob McDonnell also Puyallup. As the assistant. There's just a great history. Get some that. We have respect to answer them there in. And obviously your mattress in his great basketball so you two are great basketball. Schools great basketball stories. Outsider you and to be coached this cure it sounds different. Ben has been this sounds like it's gone back for awhile. There's always has very little resistance. And you work on war. A coach particular could Turkey in the course so I was here for certain years coach recruits the so called Schmidt is someone tour prepped to Adam Morrison. He's done some great things where he's banned and so you. You look at those guys and yeah they're they're they're careers and you try to embrace some of the pain that they bring to the table one thing about Serbia's. It wouldn't you don't he's more. Absolutely absolutely how many how many times we are of course document Arkansas coach Mike Anderson how many times have you thought about the last three does that North Carolina game coach. I tell you what I did you watched the game McCain wants to give up my powers Kevin know what happened on the global opportunities. You know there's a warrior and hopefully would use the term terrorist this year. From an experience standpoint but we were. We definitely striving to commences I want to know oh you're like a couple plays away to get there and obviously you don't want to get that. 6216. A lot of things that take place and we saw that was stopped her car key that you open to the SEC turner very big stroke. And nobody got hot at the right time and we really felt one. Ward of the better teams planned after retirement that often aren't the team that I guess was who's destined for them to win and they get past some. It has impressed geared out there but opinion dates. To survive and advance. You talk to a lot of coaches about tough season ending losses dug out area. When he was in Memphis I believe he said he has never watched the film of the championship game as a as a sort of as a philosophy. The you ever go back and watch season ending losses or do you just try to block come out and forget about him. If Israel were you know what I think about this team here we have seven new players in that would not respect uniform and so this came to. Two were based off and and how great development and operates tennis. That's a testament to our borders and our culture strayer first. Bruney. By a man who would do more and you know got a good core coming back next year or so. Big anti obviate would watch it but justice. They want things so that Lou Holtz and so would knock on the door only to lose to the potential national campaign. Team just aren't comment rich source of motivation so are disarmed as a big offseason for fourteen. You mentioned bringing their quarterback part of that course going to be Darrell Macon and embark for they both declared for the NBA draft but have since decided to return. For their senior seasons where there's some sleepless nights they're coached. You know are you you don't ever know in all put up or we. We approach it the right way and that is to get those guys to seep back now lies that put their name and support him and a decision. And then a candidate you know it they've got to make the hopefully the right decision have a special resolve about them they've just gotten here I think they're just. Captive also happening is that they're going to be able to it is well console within Europe that bill now. I have an opportunity to get some deep back home where they are in terms of you know professional which is to take place hopefully to be our master of about it go back and go to work and get ready for Cofield greats a year. Coaching that you played an end coach on our man I consider one of the greatest ever do an old rich and talk about hall of Famer. I'm curious what what's the most important piece of of knowledge or advice that Nolan gave viewer or what's the one thing he said may be repeatedly these two yells players are or do you. That that you find yourself maybe use an insane alive it was a weather a lot of them as the one that you remember most when you use most. While certain people bureau Thomas certainly you'd. You gotta be who you that you can't be no market beat old rifts and you know receipt for the Minnesota over fiscal first some you know on top. And hopefully these defenses forty minutes is closest to that and what we do put back. Can't because protect got to be who are excellent so even when you talk on our teams you know. Our teams that men don't owns the athletic ability quickness these past kidnapped do you it. And hasn't made in this. Passed you with this team I have disparity it was a lot of my best foot ocean team pass out epic is the best tradition they're not suffer too deep. PP five years. But we didn't really press all the time I'm and we did it more had to. We we about half court defense we ran out of it we managed to master defense. We put more would be kisses so what will we extend our sept all the time and that. In Indianapolis that gave us opportunities to win games so. They're different ways to win game mapping best that the keys that you you can be merit to assist you match winning and that's what we admired to want. It adds to stick with Nolan really quickly has he indicated to you at all I'm sure he did you all that talks about this about what it's meant to him. To have the youth there I just wonder whether having you there you get the job at Arkansas it being you his guy has helped heal some of the the wounds for him. The public that is connected think it obviously eased a bit portal would restrict completion without a bomb plot back here at the Antarctic we took the whole thing. Frankel they. You know what he'd be at least you have no effect on his program army unit that. It's amazing how cycles. Players kind of developed an. What the case here we are here now it's a certainty at least a player wants every five years you become a period William partner program now. Mean. We've got a kid I got Ricci has come from state court so Mexico so in that and you look at Bob reporters in the that have come through here we're Purdue amount. I think that has a lot to do a book includes some. You need here in terms of promoting basketball. I think there's been a big but we talk about you know former players coming back and involve this program it. And also hit I'm like a coach's son Robert Wood they would it is and so respect the sun comes home he's got all the games. The fans really are they didn't love this guy and he's. These culprits of assuming he has and so our topic is kind of I've been a unite and bring in all of politics together in the we just have a Terry Porter played eighteen years ago Korean Marie this are locals distaste the other day is so. Let's go to meet the cold truth is really change where's invite these guys back and they're coming back in the office. You are of course target to Arkansas basketball coach Mike Anderson here on Jason and Jon coach when you got the job I think there was obviously. A ton of excitement. But it took four years to make the NCAA tournament now to Roland you made the and so laid turn that two out of the last three season you were very close to being the eventual national champion. North Carolina but I'm just curious in that in that four years. You've you do this isn't your first job. So what principles did you sort of mean on and rely on knowing that it was going to take time you know fans are getting sort of restless about getting back to the NCAA tournament. How did you navigate that what did you lean on the source of sort of specifically. Before that happened. Brilliant dogs hear when I what do you maybe you loose dirt pal like better to work out you know in that Gloria and read cultivated in view of this state to New York bureau. Beaulieu an economic go to work and have some tension and I want to Missouri that was the worst console. Three years we've elite eight so just go to form an app and have a chance to come back here. Obviously there's tremendous challenges nominate your standpoint there. I just get talent and know that Coke which has had created a monster. And that monster was hungry man about a mile path it's but I just say you know a lot of years in the I think a lot of player on the model patient a lot of great. And distrust. Distrust in the and build that trust with the kids that can bring in here they're topics are part of our staff. There are also doubled bringing Bernanke isn't ball in to what we're trying to do what you go to these are called to protest during this process. Epic best to Keyon gust of wind and all before we went on the full and I think we're seeing that you know where kids that are graduating kissed at a company years. And port called on to the program we get talent you know Bobby porous Michael Walsh think about that team in the area. I imagine they were exciting team and I think it is very so they were modestly Israeli defeat this and and and then having those guys last year command and now there's been you know a little story here. Has SBA and so it was a took. To some unprecedented success here. I know every situation is is different coach but when you are taking over a new program. A year wine. As you were sort of you know evaluating the trajectory. How long do you think you realistically takes for that coach two gig going is it two years is it a graduation cycle. I mean when you when you are charged with sort of reinventing a culture. How long does that process take. Well you targeted to middle class suburban. You may be your first fiscal Gartman I was able to bring some kids with. That Missouri are not and have a chance to bring an acute because Martin got thirteen. Scholarships they were hopeful and that you just made curious Joost. When you came here so you can't just like he is an out here and I did have a chance to bring any kiss me so. With advance written out the situation is gonna dictate how Smart they and it took me you know that Mexico Democrats which include Bob reporters. We got better each year master keys. You guys Ellis started port and you've got to continue to. Believe what you know. And continue to to work in cry of and and and your administration is going to be supportive of him what you do on the coast. Everybody right now is is is what have you done lately manage the process cycle so. But I didn't imagine that you could be a first cut it took three years and Missouri and in here dirtier part we're not he would force you to NCAA tournament. And they all wrong so myopic when it was set to that success. Coach have you that you touched on this earlier and I got to go back and answered and have you ever had an out of state pipeline as fruitful as the one you know and and running from here to have to Fayetteville amid a new coach. But Djokovic had a little 901 patch on your Jersey today with all the myth is as yet look out I asked the question this way best Memphis player that she coached. Well part of it took so received they scored mission school has been he would and rightly so record term. Yep man. But some numbers up denies culture men in the state park sort of dismiss. Roger it was a tremendous town it was almost seem to want to the final four. One of the I want the most competitive there have orders mean he just went it was Corey Beck. The tightest they would assortment and George Stewart wasn't tough matchup for a lot of people. Well all of bowers crops structure and how strategist Goldman and an older it just might we get the right key you and there are some kid that. Obviously I have met just can't take all of and so would take the next step about logistics where ticked toward that they didn't warn him that we missed some tremendous success but there hasn't. An epic episode each situation because they're not. That's for the most went well Paul what we can do their own pain but the close enough where they give back. Yet I thought I was gonna lead in that leads into the money wasn't if you think it'll ever be like that again. Where are you getting that much out of here. Well that we really no question Barbara masters as my supporters in the we always all of that is part of our fabric states. Those kids security gains made it just seemed like they get they get vicious they that there always want to get better and so I love metrostars. I got one for you where is Alex Dillard the man that could come across half court may be in range you any idea where Alex Dillard I don't know. Those who loves him well Balboa he's the assistant coach and I want to hardest to block it in east do you get like thirty in the church street. Either way it's a brother has Marquardt deeper. Like he was that he was on believe by far one and you got a role to just the proudest moment your career you've had so many. Is it is it went in the national championship back in the nineties and I former runner up the next season is it did your first head job is it didn't Arkansas what's been the the proudest moment. You know bill a lot of great moments. Pretty in the off our national champs to stand but. And have to come and hit go to record you'd be you'd want back home in just. Just build and create another great excitement and that's saying he would. This deceit you know on the communities that that they're really connect with the university Obama's supporters and in subsequent press conference and you may be it. A proud of small a group called wars congressman's wife was there with Maine and my mother. Impressed with two years appropriate he would vehicle for. But Susan Thomas.
