Max Kellerman: I Spend Too Much Time With Jay Williams To Hate Duke

“I actually am in a room with Jay more than I spend time in a room with just about anybody in my life. It’s five hours a day. And this is not some dude who roots for Duke. His jersey is hanging in the rafters, right? So I root for Duke because of that.”

Like so many of us, Max Kellerman grew up hating Mike Krzyzewski and the Duke Blue Devils. On Monday’s edition of Keyshawn, JWill and Max, the host said that his feelings on the team have changed and he will be rooting for Coach K and Duke in the Final Four. He says his co-host is the reason why.

“It’s JWill. It’s Mr. Duke here,” he said on ESPN Radio. “I actually am in a room with Jay more than I spend time in a room with just about anybody in my life. It’s five hours a day. And this is not some dude who roots for Duke. His jersey is hanging in the rafters, right? So I root for Duke because of that.”

At most, Coach K has two games left as the head coach of the Blue Devils. The team takes on hated rival North Carolina on Saturday night in the Final Four. A win would send them to the national championship game on Monday against either Villanova or Kansas. Two wins would secure the 6th national championship in Duke history, all won under Krzyzewski’s leadership.

Max Kellerman told Chris Canty, who was filling in for Keyshawn Johnson on Monday morning that the history doesn’t mean anything to him.

“I wouldn’t care it’s Krzyzewski’s last season. If it weren’t for my relationship with Jay, I’d be rooting against Duke still, Chris.”

Canty agreed that Williams is a good guy, but said he still plans to root against Duke on Saturday. He said that the program has always carried itself in a way that suggests it doesn’t think other ACC schools are on its level. That can be annoying for fans of rival teams.

Whether or not it was evidence of Canty’s point, Williams embraced the idea that his alma mater’s games matter more. Forget Magic vs. Bird in 1979. Jay Williams said that Saturday night’s game between Duke and UNC will be “the biggest game in college basketball history.”

Andrew Fillipponi: Peter Burns Made ‘Innocuous Joke’ To Ben Watson

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

The on-air spat between SEC Network host Peter Burns and analyst Ben Watson continues to be bandied about in sports media circles, with 93.7 The Fan hosts Andrew Fillipponi and Chris Mueller discussing the topic Tuesday.

“I’m on Team Burns,” Fillipponi said.

“Forget who’s team you’re on,” Chris Mueller said. “I think you’ve do have to keep the wives and children out of this.”

“What are you talking about, keep the wives and out of it?!,” Fillipponi asked.

“Do we believe this is work or shoot here?,” Mueller wondered.

“Oh, I think this is real,” Fillpponi added, which Mueller agreed.

“Do you think a close fist from Ben Watson hit Peter Burns?,” Mueller asked.

“No, I think he picked him up by the lapels,” Fillipponi said.

When the subject of Watson’s religion was brought up, Fillipponi then pointed out the absurdity of the situation.

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

“I think he might have a shorter fuse and not taking in humor that Peter Burns was giving out,” Mueller said.

“It was an innocuous joke!,” Fillipponi stated. “It wasn’t a joke! Why is it in bad taste?”

Mueller then added the idea of Watson’s wife texting Burns insinuates there’s an inappropriate relationship.

Craig Carton: Booger McFarland’s Zach Wilson Analysis ‘An Embarrasment’

Craig Carton

ESPN NFL analyst Booger McFarland raised eyebrows on Monday Night Countdown this week by saying New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has never been held accountable for his actions because he was a “young man who grew up with a lot of money”. WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton called out McFarland’s comments Tuesday as outlandish.

“It was an embarrasment,” Carton said. “Someone should ask Booger McFarland if his kids — who grew up with amazing wealth — have accountability in their lives or if having a little bit of money in your pocket immediately discounts the possibility to have accountability. He’s an idiot and we learned that last night.”

“It’s funny that Steve Young was on the other side of it,” Evan Roberts noted. “Because a long time ago, Steve Young criticized Chris Simms because he’s the son of a famous quarterback.”

“You don’t have to invent reasons for why Zach Wilson isn’t playing well,” added Carton. “Just watch his tape. He’s not playing well. Maybe he’s just not good!”

Carton later said NFL reporters “will try to make a name for themselves by putting out a story” about quarterbacks who take responsibility for their teams failures, while Wilson wouldn’t accept the blame.

“Be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”

Peter Burns and Ben Watson shared an awkward exchange during the halftime show of an SEC Network football game over the weekend, and many are still debating whether Watson walking off the set was serious or not. Count part of the cast of The Greg Hill Show on WEEI as doubters.

“That was a a bit,” Courtney Cox said. “That was absolutely a bit.”

“Yeah, unlike the Chris Rock/Will Smith thing, I assume that was a bit,” Hill said. “I can’t believe that Ben Watson is really angry about that.”

“I dunno, man. There’s been a lot of speculation that it isn’t,” Jermaine Wiggins added. “There are people who are very sensitive about you clowning on them or joking with them. Especially with joking about their wife. Some people can’t handle jokes like that.”

After a back-and-forth with Cox about the legitimacy of the joke, Wiggins concluded by saying for some folks family is off limits.

“I’ve learned something in my 47 years on this Earth: be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”
