Hit rewind on the free Odyssey app. Thank you so much to the head coach of BYU. Mark Pope came through and joined us as his squad. Tomorrow they're going to get ready to take on Duquesne.

Looking forward to it. And right now as well, in first for action. We have to still get to the field of 64. We'll know who the final 64 are tonight. Montana State is leading Grambling 53 to 39. In about an hour or so from now, Boise State is going to take on Colorado.

And at that point, we will know what the final field of 64 looks like. And Mark Pope, just a great conversation. Next hour, we're going to have a chat with Dusty May, who leads Florida Atlantic. And so that that should also be fun.

One thing that that Mark Pope said that I really appreciated was about the diversity of the game. And I'm going to play that in a second. But let me let me remind you of this.

It's Wednesday. In a few minutes, I'm going to share with you a top six list because it is March because we're in the midst of the madness. I'm going to go outside of the madness.

I'm going to talk about all sports as I deliver to you a top six list that takes a look at some of the biggest upsets that we have ever seen or witnessed in the world of sports. And so we'll do that momentarily. But let's take a listen.

And thank you so much to super producer and host Ryan Hickey holding it down for us in New York. Let's listen to head coach Mark Pope. Earlier in the show, I pretty much asked him about the state of the game. Mark Pope played overseas. He played in the NBA. He's won a championship with Kentucky. He's now leading BYU. He has been everywhere. And he talked about his own team and just the importance of just a little bit of diversity and growing.

Listen. It's been awesome to watch. You know, right now on our team, our starting center is is, you know, one of the most beloved players, the college basketball for all the fans, the college basketball.

And I haven't haven't watched this play yet. Get ready, because he is, you know, we lovingly refer to by a bunch of next name was one of the Egyptian magician, a young man from Alexandria, Egypt, who is just he's the he's the college versus a yoke. It's in a magical way. And then, you know, our other starting center, he started not to see them for the last two years is from Bamako, Mali. And, you know, one of our other bigs is from Tanzania. And, you know, our team, as well as every team in the country, has a real international flavor. And it's making the game better. And it's given our student athletes a much better experience. It's given our locker room a better vibe that we have representations of people from all different backgrounds, all different races and religions and socioeconomic statuses.

And they get to come together in a locker room and learn from each other and become brothers. It's actually it's a beautiful thing, man, to watch this game go worldwide. Yeah, absolutely beautiful. Thank you to head coach Mark Pope. You missed it.

Go ahead. Hit rewind on the free Odyssey app. Plenty of other news that's come down the pipe today. Shohei Ohtani's interpreter has been fired.

It's been alleged that he stole about four and a half million dollars from Shohei Ohtani to cover some illegal gambling debts. These are things that you cannot make up. 855-2124 ZBS is the number. We'll talk to you in a little bit. But for right now, it's time for a new top six list. It's March. There's madness. And we've had some big upsets in college basketball history.

But just thinking about sports in the general sense, we've had some huge, gigantic upsets where you just go, how in the hell did that happen? That's why they say you got to go ahead and play the game. It's not played in the media. It's not played on paper. It's not played in regards to stats.

You got to go out there and actually show up. And they always say everybody has a puncher's chance, right? Anyway, it's time for a new top six list. Some of the biggest upsets in sports history. Let's go.

Six, five, four, three, two, one. It's time to get J.R.'s latest top six list only on the J.R. sport brief. It is the J.R. sport brief show here with you on CBS Sports Radio, taking a look at some of the biggest upsets that we have ever seen in the world of sports to get things started off. We're not going to be on a court. We are not going to be on a field. We are going to the ice. We are going back to 1980. We're going to Lake Placid in New York.

Why? Because this was the site of the 1980 Winter Olympics. And you want to know who was expected to go out there and win those Winter Olympics? The Soviet Union, because they walked away with gold in five out of the last six Olympics at that point in time in 1980. This team is full of professionals and you want to know who they ended up facing off against in the medal round? Team USA. You want to know who Team USA was comprised of? A bunch of amateurs, a bunch of young dudes going up against the big bad Soviet Union. They were supposed to lose.

They were supposed to take it out. But they did not. And Team USA won four to three in the medal round.

And then they advanced to beat Finland for the gold. Don't take my word for it. Let's go back to 1980. This voice might sound familiar.

Well, definitely younger. Let's listen to Al Michaels with one of the most famous calls in sports. Let's go back and listen, courtesy of ABC. You've got 10 seconds. The countdown going on right now.

Maro up the shelf. Five seconds left in the game. Do you believe in miracles? Yes!

Do you believe in miracles? Yes. Hickey, how many times have you heard that in your life? Countless. Oh, my goodness.

At least 100. That gets played at every mashup of everything ever related to sports all the time. Can't avoid it. Al Michaels sounds good now. I mean, given that he's older, he's still got the pipes, don't you think? He's got the pipes still. You know, maybe other areas are in question, but the voice, no doubt about it. Hey, what is he on Amazon now?

Right now? What he does, sir. Man, Amazon didn't exist when that we did that clip in 1980. Al Michaels has been around a long ass time. Congratulations, Al Michaels.

And congratulations to Team USA knocking off the Soviet Union. I got that upset at number six. It's a countdown. So where do we go next?

Number five. Now. Now we're getting the basketball. Now we're going to take a look at one of the biggest upsets in college basketball history. Let's think about a Houston team. I know the Cougars are moving right now and trying to win a championship. Let's think about a Cougars team that had Clyde Drexler. Let's think about a Cougars team that had Akeem Olajuwon. Let's think about a Houston Cougars team that lost to North Carolina State. On a putback dunk.

Let me tell you something. North Carolina State was a 16th seed in the tournament. Houston was a numero uno.

But Jim Falvano in one of the craziest scenes, one of the craziest celebratory scenes that you will ever see on film or video. He ran around the court like somebody who lost his mind. The game was tied 52 all. It was almost stolen. It was almost deflected and snatched by Houston. But by the time Lorenzo Charles got his hands on the ball, a putback dunk sealed the win. And North Carolina State knocked off the Houston Cougars, who were literally gasping for air.

Akeem Olajuwon was looking for oxygen. Listen to this. Listen to this play by play of the final call as North Carolina State beat Houston. It's down to seven seconds. You can see the time. Wittenberg.

Oh, it's a long way. They won it. On the dunk.

On the dunk. Let me tell you what else is cool. That that that was a part of the legacy of Jim Falvano. Like we all know his larger legacy is the Jimmy V Foundation telling people to never quit. Don't ever, ever quit. Don't ever, ever give up. And just winning that game, I think just just helped inspire people and became a part of his legacy that you can not ignore.

It's it's magical. And God bless him for the message that he shared and the message that's been left. And what he's done to just help encourage others. But you want to talk about an upset in sports? One of the biggest upsets in college basketball history. Yeah.

Go ahead. North Carolina State over those Houston Cougars in 1983. You want to know how good Akeem Olajuwon was?

He won most outstanding player on the tournament on a losing team. Yeah. Let's keep it moving. Top six upsets in sports. North Carolina State over Houston is five. What number are we up to? Number four. Oh, more college basketball.

How appropriate, right? Let's fast forward a couple of seasons. Let's take a look at Georgetown. Let's take a look at a team led by some guy named Patrick Ewing. Georgetown ultimately had five NBA players on their team. Georgetown throughout the course of the year went thirty five and two.

You don't know what the hell that means. Let me break it down for you. They won thirty five games and they lost two. They beat up everybody until they got to the championship, until they met Raleigh Massimo's team, Massimino's team in Villanova.

This was in nineteen eighty five. Villanova went nineteen and ten. Every game in the tournament was basically close. And somehow, some way they caught a miracle. They put Patrick Ewing in foul trouble. They abused the fact that there was no shot clock. And this was a miracle. Villanova ended up shooting seventy nine percent from the field.

Listen to this final call. This is Villanova knocking off Georgetown to win the nineteen eighty five championship. This is courtesy of CBS Sports. The key thing here for Villanova, one, they must get the ball in bounds within five seconds. That means it must touch a player from either team within five seconds. Let's see if Raleigh Massimino tries to get the ball up court.

Knock them off in one. Sixty six to sixty four. Raleigh Massimino would go on and conduct every interview that you could imagine. Representing Italian Americans all over the damn place. Big deal.

Huge to the community in Philadelphia and elsewhere. Villanova knocking off Georgetown. Sixty six to sixty four. How the hell you shoot 80 percent from the field?

I have no idea. But they did it in a championship game against a team that basically never lost. I got that at number four. Top six upsets in sports. That's four. What's this number? Number three.

Wow. This was a wild one. We got to talk about the New England Patriots losing to the New York Giants.

Oh, which one? I'm talking about the New England Patriots basically going perfect throughout the season. I'm talking about the New England Patriots going all the way to the Super Bowl to lose to the New York Giants in Super Bowl. Forty two.

Seventeen to fourteen. The Patriots were 18 and oh, they're trying to catch up and match with them. Seventy two dolphins who I guess they throw a party every time a team doesn't go undefeated or barely misses it.

I got to remind you, let's go back in time. The New England Patriots took on the New York Giants to basically close the regular season. The Patriots, they won 38 to 35 to close out the regular season, but the Giants got a little bit of confidence that they could continue to go on. They went into the postseason. The Giants were a wildcard team. They met New England in the Super Bowl.

And it took a lot of magic. So Eli Manning becoming a magician. It took a David Tyree helmet catch. It's a classical Burris coming through at the game winning touchdown to seal it. And it took a Super Bowl away from Tom Brady.

Thank you for that. Hey, Hickey, could you imagine if Tom Brady had eight super? I mean, there's and we don't live in an alternate reality. Could you imagine if Tom Brady had like those games? Well, he shouldn't have won the Falcons one. Right. So there's a law of averages here, I guess.

No. And even the Seahawks won two. I mean, a lucky interception of the goal line.

You could argue right. They could easily won two against the Giants and lost two that they won. But there's also a world that he could realistically have 10 Super Bowls. Seven is insane.

Ten is not that far off. Tom Brady already has more Super Bowls in any organization, any single organization in the NFL. He has more Super Bowls than all of them.

Anyway, this one did not happen. Thank you so much, David Tyree. Thank you so much, Eli Manning. This is Joe Buck from Fox Sports with the perfect call.

Listen to this helmet catch. Pressure from Thomas off the edge. Eli Manning stays on his feet. Airs it out down the field. It is caught by Tyree inside the 25 and a time out taken. Manning lobs it, Burress alone. Touchdown New York. Brady steps up.

Throws. Downfield broken up. Two seconds left as the Giants take over. Yeah, you heard that.

The final call before the final call was Plaxico Burress coming down with that game winning touchdown to basically seal things. Another thing Tom Brady doesn't have having an undefeated season. I mean, damn it, Tom.

You couldn't have it all. And now he's done. Now he's retired. And now we can listen to him on Fox. What is he making? Thirty five million dollars a year, Hickey?

Yeah, something like that. He better be good. He better be good. I got the New York Giants knocking off those almost undefeated Patriots. I got them at number three.

If I got the Giants knocking off the Patriots at number three and we're talking about some of the biggest upsets in sports history. What's the next number? Number two. Oh, got to go to number two. We got to go further back. We actually have to go to 1990. A matter of fact, we can't even stick around.

In America, we got to go to Japan. We have to take a look at Mike Tyson, who was 37 and 0 at the time, losing to Buster Douglas in the Tokyo Dome. You know what?

This is this is a big deal. Buster Douglas was expected to show up and get a check for losing because that's what the hell Mike Tyson did. He annihilated you. You think these little video clips with Jake Paul is these promo clips?

You think that's something? Imagine actually having to face the guy. He would destroy you. Take a listen to this clip as Buster Douglas puts Mike Tyson down.

This makes Cinderella look like a sad story. What Buster Douglas has done tonight. Hickey, that's not going to happen against Jake Paul, is it? Well, I don't think so. I hope not, at least. Oh, Mike Tyson annihilates the guy, but it's not a real fight.

So who knows? Anyway, Mike Tyson in his prime. Mike Tyson today. Don't want to see that guy on an airplane. Don't want to see him in the street. Only way I want to see Mike Tyson is if he is relaxed.

Let's put it that way. Maybe he has taken something to relax. He's selling all that CBD marijuana stuff. Hickey, you saw he's selling like CBD ears. You see that in the shape of that Evander Holyfield's ear? Yeah.

I mean, market it, whatever you got to do. You know, you think Evander is getting a cut? I'm going to say no. And I don't think Evander is going to be running over there, even if Mike Tyson's age and trying to, you know, get a cut out. Let's just say his other ear may be gone. Yeah, I don't I don't think so.

And leave that one alone. The JR Sport Retro here with you on CBS Sports Radio. We're talking about the top six upsets that we've ever seen in the world of sports. When we come back, I'm going to tell you about the biggest upset that the sports world has ever seen.

It's the JR Sport Retro on CBS Sports Radio. Old Man Winter here. If I had it my way, it would stay winter all year long. Short days, wind chill, black ice and a good polar vortex.

Heaven! Wait, is it getting warm in here? Your cold snap is over, Old Man Winter. Spring has arrived.

Spring. Spring is here, which means it's the perfect time to get away in the Hyundai you've always wanted.

Sport Brief Show here on CBS Sports Radio. I'm giving you a new top six list. College Basketball March Madness is underway. We're bound to have plenty of upsets. Who's going to get knocked off? Purdue, right? Somebody's going to knock them off. Anyway, tonight's top six list where we're taking a look at some of the biggest upsets that we've ever seen or witnessed in sports.

Flat and period. And so in a few seconds, I'm going to share with you the biggest upset in sports history. Let me give you a quick recap. If you weren't here for the last break, if you were not here for the last break, where were you? You can still listen. Hit rewind on the free Odyssey app.

Get the Odyssey app, pull up CBS Sports Radio, hit rewind, OK? Anyway, number six, I gave you the Miracle on Ice. Team USA, all them amateurs knocking off the Soviet Union in 1980 in New York. And number five, I gave you North Carolina State over Houston in 1983. Jim Valvano's squad knocked off those Cougars, and they can thank Lorenzo Charles with that putback dunk, the putback dunk at the end of the game that sent Jim Valvano running and racing all over the court. And number four, sticking to college basketball, the top six upsets in sports history. I gave you Villanova going over Georgetown. Rolly Massimino, his squad shot almost 80 percent from the field.

Patrick Ewing was on the bench, put him in foul trouble, and then they decided to abuse the fact that there, well, there was no clock. And then ultimately what they did, they held it down and won 66 to 64. Number three, I gave you the New York Giants knocking off those undefeated New England Patriots at Super Bowl 42. Tom Brady.

Thank God. Another accomplishment, at least an accomplishment he did not get. Could you imagine this guy's legacy if he had an undefeated season to win a Super Bowl? It took a helmet catch and Eli Manning becoming Harry Houdini for it to happen.

But it did. You want to talk about biggest upsets in sports? And number two, Mike Tyson, Iron Mike Tyson knocked everybody out from here to there and did it in no time. He lost the Buster Douglas Tokyo Dome in Japan in 1990. From there, you could say things things went downhill for Mike. He picked up some other fights. But then the next thing you know, Iron Mike was in prison for some sexual issues. And so if that's number two, that only leads us or leaves us here.

Number one. You want to talk about the biggest upset in sports history? Imagine being beat.

Oh, let me be careful here. Don't say that. Imagine being beat by Joe Namath, who in a lot of cases wasn't taken seriously. Imagine being beat by someone as eccentric and fun loving and brash and also with busted up knees as Joe Namath. Well, Joe Namath won Super Bowl MVP in 1969 as my favorite football team, the loser. Yeah, just in a general sense, the loser, New York Jets. They went out there and they beat the Colts 16 to 7. The New York Jets were 19 point underdogs, 19 point underdogs.

The great Johnny Unitas busted up earlier on in the season had to come on and relieve our morale. It was only a few days ago before the game down in Miami that Joe Namath told everybody, just one of the most bold proclamations that we've ever heard in sports history. Joe Namath said he basically guaranteed a win over the Colts.

And then Joe Namath came true. This was the third Super Bowl. The Green Bay Packers won the first two. They knocked off the Raiders. They knocked off the Chiefs. The NFL was supposed to be much more dominant over the AFL, except for this time when the New York Jets decided to walk away with a victory. Their defense held it down so much so that Joe Namath won the MVP without throwing a touchdown or even running or rushing for a touchdown. I want you to take a listen to the final call as the New York Jets, the bleeping New York Jets, the stinking New York Jets beat the Colts in Super Bowl three in 1969.

The game is over. The New York Jets are the world champions. They have upset the Baltimore Colts and beat them handily here today. They not only defeated them, but held them.

Here's Shula going over. They shut out the Jets or the Colts till the last three minutes and 19 seconds of the game. How? Well, let me not say how. Here's a better question.

Are the New York Jets cursed? Why can't something nice like that happen again? I guess like this. Hey, you got this one.

And I see you later. It's 2024. New York Jets haven't been to the playoffs since, what, 2010? In North American professional sports, New York Jets have the longest streak of not making a postseason.

Help me. They got Aaron Rodgers and they basically being held hostage by this guy. Sorry, it's supposed to be a celebratory moment. Congratulations to the New York Jets. Aaron Rodgers showed up and said that trophy in the front looks kind of lonely.

Well, thanks. Thanks, Aaron. New York Jets franchise and organization will be lonely again and in the hell whenever he decides to leave. You think they won the championship with Aaron Rodgers? No, no, sir. Hey, you think the New York Jets are going to pick up a championship with Aaron Rodgers?

Definitely not. Nineteen sixty nine. The biggest upset that we've seen in sports. The New York Jets beat the Colts. And that apparently is the best that the New York Jets can get. Eight five five two one two four CBS.

That's eight five five two one two four CBS. Of course, we've had bigger upsets or more upsets, I should say, in the world of sports. What upset stands out to you? We talking about another Super Bowl matchup.

You know, we we looking at another fight. I've seen some big knockouts that were unexpected. Are we talking about NBA finals? I could think about some other upsets. Are we thinking about Olympics? I could think about some upsets. What are some of the biggest upsets that you can remember in sports history? I got the Jets beating the Colts and number one on my list.

I just gave you a new top six list.

Thank you so much. The March Madness. Oh, what the hell's going on here? We got Grambling State in Montana. They're tied at seventy two. Grambling has the ball with six seconds left. Their coach said, ah, we're calling the time out. You ain't messing this one up.

So now Grambling State. We'll have an opportunity to advance. Win this game.

Hey, Hickey, they're going to win, right? Six. What is six seconds? I just said on the clock. Six seconds. Ball in their hands. Don't shoot a three here.

Hey, Hickey, it felt full time. I'm going to look out the window and see how many people are watching outside. OK. OK. All right. Here we go. I'm going to put my coach hat on. Six seconds left. Six seconds left. You're going to get the ball.

Here's what you got to do. You got to drive to the hole. There is no there is no justifying an open three here because guess what?

That's make or miss. You drive to the hole, you get a life or you get fouled. Six seconds left.

Not enough time, you think, for Montana State with no time outs to go down the court and get a good shot here. So you go to the six, six people. Oh, wow. Bigger crowd than yesterday. Yeah.

There's a guy standing up there. Two people that brought their own lawn chairs. Oh, yeah.

You know what, J.R., Grambling State, Montana State, they put butts in the seats. Yeah. Let's see what happens. I'm going to get to the phone calls in a second.

We the phone lines are lighting up. If you're on if you're on hold, we're going to get you here. You think you're taking a three here? No, you got to go to the basket. Get the foul, man. Right. I'm with you. Stupid basketball is a three.

The kid is. I'll go to the basket. No. OK. Pull up.

Oh. Over time, contested fadeaway is the final shot. It took him too long to get the ball up and he had to get to the dribbling. I would have leaned into a guy and. He went behind the back. I think he had space. Little step back.

He's supposed to lean into the dude, man, but it's what it is. Overtime eight five five two one two four CBS. If you missed the full top six list, you can hit rewind on the free Odyssey app. Talking about some of the biggest upsets in sports history on my list. I had the miracle on ice at number six and number five. I had North Carolina State going over Houston. And number four, I had Villanova over Georgetown. And number three, I had the New York Giants beating those New England Patriots who were undefeated at the time.

And number two, Mike Tyson going over Buster Douglas and at number one numero uno. We got to go back to nineteen sixty nine when the New York Jets of the AFL beat the Colts of the NFL. The final score there. Sixteen to seven. The New York Jets were 19 point underdogs.

They're flamboyant quarterback and Joe Namath decided to guarantee a victory in the New York Jets certainly walked away with that. Eight five five two one two four CBS. Let's go to Justin in Alaska. You are CBS Sports Radio, the J.R. sport reshow. Go ahead, Justin.

Hey, J.R., I want to thank you for taking my call. I appreciate your list and everything. And I really disagree a little bit. I'm I'm a big hockey fan, so maybe I'm a little biased.

I just think that that miracle on ice should be much higher. And the only reason is there's a documentary called The Red Army. It was about the Soviet team. They're going to try out those young kids that they got selected. They basically went to a compound for about a year. And that was their life.

They had to be enlisted in the military. But those guys played together their entire life. And then you get a bunch of college kids that were put together for just a few minutes or a few months and upset the greatest team in the world for a couple of decades, I guess. But it wasn't just that game either.

That whole tournament. But to me, I don't know anything about basketball or football. I was telling Hickey there that I became an NFL fan just from listening to you watching to. Yeah, I was listening. I'm not a big NFL fan. I like college football. And I was listening to the national championship game, big Walgreens fan and listening to the game and just left it on that radio station.

And you came on and the more I listened, the more I started getting intrigued. And I'm all about like the draft. And I have so many questions. And every time I ask football fans, they can't answer them. And there's it.

I don't know. You have made me an NFL fan. I just want to thank you for that and appreciate what you're doing very much. Enjoy your show.

Now, Justin, thank you so much. And I want you to hear this. There is no bigger compliment and this is not not some exclusive thing, but there is no bigger compliment when someone tells me personally or over the air or sends me an email or message and says listening to you.

Help me get into this. I've had people in Europe years ago tell me, hey, I watched the NBA because of how you describe the game. I appreciate that. I've had people tell me I don't even like sports, but I listen to you because of how you describe things.

There is no bigger honor. I have listened to a whole crap ton of people my entire life who cover sports, who don't cover sports. My approach to this, whether people like it or don't like it, is to tell a story.

And the fact that you listen, pay attention and watch the NFL just because of how I tell stories. I appreciate that, Justin. Thank you so much for calling from Alaska. Hit me up any time. All right. Thank you, man. Appreciate it. No doubt about it.

Yeah, that's the that's the ultimate compliment. You know, not everybody not everybody's going to like or enjoy what you do. I don't expect everybody to like and love what I do. I know a lot of people do. But the fact is, I'm not sitting here trying to be a statistician and beat stats to death. It's cast in a wide net. There are people here who only care about the stats.

The people here only want the drama. I try to bring you a mix. I try to have fun. Sports say one one one size doesn't fit all.

But I try to make it fit all. OK, eight five five two one two four CBS eight five five two one two four CBS. We went from Alaska. Let's go to Hawaii and talk to Randy. Randy, you're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, J.R., can you hear me? I got you loud and clear. Randy, go on ahead. OK, I'm driving. I'm driving.

It's like almost three o'clock here in Hawaii. And I had taken a late lunch and I usually don't listen to the radio shows like this. But your top six list or whatever you call it, you know, I wanted to hear that. And I am just shocked and amazed that you could not have the Virginia Chaminade basketball game not only in your top six or 10 list. That ought to be number one. I mean, no doubt about it. Ralph Sampson, best player in the country, ranked number one. And they play a Division three school back in the 80s.

No shot clock, no three point play or three point shot to help out an underdog team. That, if not number one, has to be in your list. OK, Randy. Well, let me let me provide a little bit more perspective.

Thank you. It's not a top 10. Everybody does a top 10 list. I do a top six. No top 10.

Top 10 can go to hell. Second of all, I would think you being in Hawaii, obviously you would think about Chaminade. So that'd be point number two. Number three, you're correct.

This is one of the biggest upsets that we have seen or recognized in sports. Correct. Randy, you watched Sesame Street at one point in life, right?

No, I've never watched. Yeah. No, you like Bernie. You like Ernie. You know what?

I mean, no matter what you're going to tell me, you know, you throw out like an NFL upset. No, no, Randy. No, no, Randy, I got to hit the break. I need you to listen for a second. OK. Do you like Bert or do you like Ernie?

Which one is it? I don't remember. I'm a lot older than, you know, Sesame Street. OK. OK. All right. Ernie and I get it. OK. Forget the question. You predate Bert and Ernie. This is the point. On Sesame Street, they had a game.

It's called one of these things is not like the other. One of these things just doesn't belong as much and big of an upset as Chaminade. Knocking off the giant Ralph Sampson in Virginia is Miracle on Ice Championship. North Carolina State over Houston Championship Villanova over Georgetown Championship.

New York Giants being the Patriots Championship. Hold on. Hold on, Mike. No, I'm not done. No, no.

Well, right. Randy, not you. Just Randy.

Time sports. Randy, Randy, Randy. Nobody can hear you because I put you on hold. Trying to talk to you, Randy.

Do you? You don't talk. You don't talk to people at home. Randy, you're not on hold anymore.

Why are you yelling over me? Huh? You're going to say sorry, Randy. That's not nice. OK. I apologize.

Well, thank you. So hold on. You apologize and then you kept on going. Now you're back on hold. Randy, I like you, Randy.

But slow down. Now you're talking. Randy, nobody can hear you. Well, thank you for pausing, Randy.

Now you're back. But listen. Now, listen, Randy, I'm a I'm a nice guy. I want to talk to people, not yell over them. I don't do that here. So pause. Listen. OK, go ahead.

I'm listening. If I want to quantify and I'm not done. Buster Douglas Tyson championship number one Super Bowl. I don't need to go ahead and say championship upset list.

I naturally ranked championships as being some of the biggest. If you don't do so, then that's your opinion. That's why we're all entitled to it. And also, by the way, that's why I made it very clear that this is my list. And I open up the phone lines of which you call.

Thank you. And I ask people for some of their biggest upsets. I mean, it's a list. It's fun. If you don't disagree, that's fine. But you don't got to shout at me about it. Oh, that makes sense.

Yeah, that makes sense. But, you know, you you don't consider what I'm saying. I tell you what. Now it's my turn to talk, please.

You know, I know it's not my show. Go ahead, Randy. So upset sports upset. You didn't qualify it earlier by saying it had to be in a championship game or contest.

You just said sports upset. And and and that I can't think of any anything that that tops the Chaminade. Well, you you happen to that's my opinion.

I appreciate you letting me talk and taking my call. That's what your show is all about. So but you're you're you know, you're you're wrong.

You need to have that in your top six. It's an opinion. You know, Randy, there's there's no being wrong in opinion. Enjoyed sharing. You shared your opinion.

I'm not stupid enough to say that your opinion is wrong. Doesn't make sense. I got a line everything out. Hey, Hickey, I think he was out there helping that show Hayes interpret a gamble.

That guy doesn't listen. Thank you, Randy. I appreciate you. 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. I'm going to get some more of your calls and get your opinions on.

Can't wait for you to tell me mine is wrong. Hey, by the way, we got a coach coming up. Dusty May. Florida Atlantic.
