He was all American sec Player of the Year are when you are back on the sports cast. Welcome back.
Erwin Dudley 1:27
Thank you. I appreciate you having me man deciding to
Santiago Leon 1:30
we had Irwin last year at the sports cast around the full time and you know, we really need a lot of more of these former Alabama basketball players on the sportscast.
Erwin Dudley 1:43
Well, I got a I got a few guys let me know you want to have it. I can I can call him up and we can get on and have some fun man and just talk it up and talk about the old times and and talk about, you know talk about right now as well.
Santiago Leon 1:55
Yeah, because right now, Alabama basketball is going on for the first time in a while they’re in the sweet 16 and favourites go to the Final Four. Erwin, tell us your thoughts over this Alabama team.
Erwin Dudley 2:13
I mean, this team is I think they’ve, you know, they a lot of people count on hadn’t counted them out, you know, they weren’t predicted to win sec. sec. But hey, I think somebody had a tendency as soon as he didn’t win. And the numbers are there. They’ve been put up on offense. But you know, defense has been incredible as well. That defensive defensive has helped him a lot this year better mobile now know when they’ve had bad shooting nights. And so that’s the one thing that people a lot of people don’t don’t realize that their defense has held them up. And you know, they play really good defense throughout the whole entire year. You know, the nervous zone offerings, you know, you know, once you play defensive nominals on offense, they’re gonna call and so you know, they’ve bought into a coach his philosophy and his system and, you know, they can’t you know, they came in and this year and they’ve done they’ve done really, really well. You know, you know, think gauchos I’ve heard him say a few times that he didn’t he didn’t think that you know they’ll have this quick of a turnaround You know, he said at least three or four but you know for them to have a turn around this quick you know, isn’t that is amazing.
Santiago Leon 3:20
Tell us what have you seen with this team? What are their strengths and what are their weaknesses?
Erwin Dudley 3:27
I mean, you know, like I say I think they’re their main strength is their you know, everybody they they play as a collective group you know, you got a team that you know, you got five guys playing together and you know, they have one agenda to get it done you know, it’s hard to beat a team like that and we know they don’t care about whose scores you know they all about they’re all about winning and you know, they you know, you’ve taken some guys that ball guys and that you know, that was highly rated highly rated kinda country coming out of high school and and different places and they’ve came coming and came in and they brought their talents together and they know a play well you know, you hear a lot of people talking about you know, the weakness the weak the weak aspect are they on the same day they’re fearful percentage like around a basket or whatever it’s like isn’t always kind of low but you know they do they do I mean of course you know, there’s any team they do miss some whatever but i think that you know, for us that we do one thing that helps us with that is that we continue to rebound rebound in a while we’ll you know, even with you know, with us playing almost five guys out for the most part No, we still we still get a lot of rebounds, you know, the guards get to live out a lot of rebounds, hurt zones and, and petty and so that’s, that’s a good thing. You need guards to rebound when you plan in, especially in the system, the way the way we were playing.
Santiago Leon 4:52
Some say that this Alabama team will make it to the final for some are predicting maybe the change A bunch of final very few out there. How deep Can you see this team going?
Erwin Dudley 5:06
I mean, I think I think they de rigueur, we have UCLA coming up and I definitely think we should be definitely should be UCLA. Now we we face Michigan or if either Florida State or whatever, you know, is going to come down who think who executes their X’s and O’s in Maine, I think, you know, once you start to get to the, to the VA aid and, and different and in final form, you know, of course, no basketball records, of course, everything becomes a little tougher. And, and your X’s and O’s got to be on point. So I think that I think that definitely, we’ll get past UCLA, but then we have to play we have to execute and play really well against, against, you know, either Florida State or either Michigan, either one of those two teams. And don’t get me wrong. I think we definitely can beat we can beat any team out there. But I’m saying we will definitely we have to we can start I don’t think we can start off slow. But those things once we get past UCLA, UCLA, I don’t think we can start slow and try to get ourselves back in because old teams, they’re you know, they’re they’re a lot more talented than some of the other teams that we’ve played. And they’ll do a lot more physical than Well,
Santiago Leon 6:13
how much excitement Are you hearing? From your circles with this team? are you guys feeling pretty optimistic?
Erwin Dudley 6:22
Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. I mean, it’s just, I mean, it’s, you know, I’ve talked to talking to a couple guys yesterday is like, you know, it’s been, it’s been a long time coming, you know, for the program. And, uh, we’ve, you know, you know, we’ve had some we had, we’ve had coaches come in, and we have some, some pretty, you know, we have we’ve had some decent, decent years. But the issue right here is like, Is it a unbelievable year for the guys to come in, and, you know, to win a regular day sec regular title to win even win a tournament day, you have Herb Jones, he comes in, he gets to play the year and a diva is a play in the in the conference, I mean, it’s unheard of, and, you know, for him to get that and, you know, hadn’t had a C player a year since there’s our date in 2002, which, you know, he had a lot of talent to come through here. And, you know, they, you know, they but they weren’t able to get this kid the SEC Player of the Year. So, is is, is is kind of his crazy, but at the same time, he says it’s been a long time coming. So we’re definitely happy, whatever, you know, we love reading, of course, we definitely room for him. Because, you know, that’s part of the program that, you know, we help we’ve helped building, you know, we’ve put our print on over the years.
Santiago Leon 7:31
One thing that I’ve been hearing a lot that Kojo, it’s, you know, could possibly leave Alabama after the season. Do you think that could happen? Or do you think like Alabama will do their best to keep them
Erwin Dudley 7:45
I don’t think he’ll leave high. me. He’s off from what I’ve heard that I eat, in what I’ve seen, you know, the family likes to hear, he likes to hear and, you know, it’s a programming, it’s Alabama, when you when you can kind of compare it to, you know, to a lot of schools and I know, a lot of people they say, Oh, you know, our banners have no football school. But, you know, at the end of the day, you know, we know from no football to but we if you look at look at look back in the years, whatever, we’ve had some really really good basketball teams as well. You know, for the most part in itself, you know, football is considered you know, you know, the top Indian, you know, above all the other sports or whatever, but we’ve had some really, really good teams over you know, over the years at Alabama, but i don’t i don’t think he’ll I don’t think he’ll leave. I don’t think he’ll even go into where though. He decided extinction as well. So I know that doesn’t mean anything, but I don’t see him understanding and open leaving. I don’t see that happening.
Santiago Leon 8:41
And I hope he stays. I really do.
Unknown Speaker 8:43
Santiago Leon 8:44
he’s and hopefully you know, Alabama has a lot of other sports as well doing well strong but basketball was
Erwin Dudley 8:52
your best year
Santiago Leon 8:54
will be a plus sign for this and it’s great to see them making news in March.
Erwin Dudley 8:59
Oh, yeah. Like you say it’s been a long long time. So he’s definitely you know, it’s definitely exciting time you know, for school and program like you said, you know, it was a lot of you know, just not even basketball and football but you know, we’ve had a lot of titles being worn by you know, by by different programs in you know, Alabama this year. So he’s, you know, he’s really excited around the athletic department.
Santiago Leon 9:22
And, and with history last time, Alabama was in the Elite Eight was in 2004, but it lost against Connecticut 71 to 87. But this is a good chance for the final for good year for the Final Four. So
Erwin Dudley 9:37
really, really impressively like this, I mean, there’s a lot of you know, you never know I mean, you know, will this year where one team can and just been knocked out, knocked out of the muck out of a round and I got him again just for no for COVID so he’s just never really know I mean, this year has been abnormal year, but For the most part for know for the NCAA continuing in sec to come in all the different other conferences where they’re continuing to persevere and, and, and no put a season though, you know a basketball season and football season in many other sports I mean it is a great, great accomplishment.
Santiago Leon 10:18
Yeah. And we’ve seen a lot of lower sea teams Some say that they should have not been lower seed, and like the first place but with the numbers, a lot of lower sea surprises and glad to see more competition and have them have a chance to play in primetime, you know, so I’m really excited what’s gonna happen before we preview sweet 16 which team has impressed you the most besides Alabama? But which other team has really impressed you the most
Erwin Dudley 10:51
on the team that really impressed me the most I mean, I mean, I figure I hate I hate Loyola, Chicago I had them beating Illinois anyway. But I think you know it just is always something about you notice the teams that they’re right in lower than you know rated lower than no didn’t the other teams and they’re from the same area whatever it is always open the same you know same state is the always the lowest he always plays a plays a lot harder you know then the then the higher seeded team so they surprised me or robbers they definitely surprised they shocked me as well and Abilene Christian I didn’t I didn’t expect him to beat Texas I mean they they play well, I mean they had Texas number I mean Texas amazing rose made some rounds during that game and they lost but you can just hear everything increasing they want to do a lot lot more and so they was able to come out with a victory but then think the next game I think they play your UCLA whatever and UCLA know they got them but like I said those three teams right down think they’ve they’ve impressed me and and they stay showing a lot showing me a lot.
Santiago Leon 12:01
Yes, something that I’ve noticed that, you know, usually I not a college basketball history field. I don’t have this memorize. But it feels like this year, you see a lot of small teams at this stage. You know, yeah, or Roberts is one of them. But then you got like, Abilene Christian, which they recently they’ve gained 120 million 2 million. And their budget. So yeah, so
Unknown Speaker 12:35
Santiago Leon 12:36
March Madness is a pretty serious tournament. It is high revenue. So it’s definitely a force to be reckoned with. But let’s begin with previewing the sweet 16. Obviously, it’s throughout this weekend, and then it will continue. We’ll start with the first game of tomorrow, which begins tomorrow. Someone’s telling me today No, it’s tomorrow. August state versus low Yola, low yellow, obviously. Having a fantastic tournament so far same as Oregon State, but one but one of them has to go Erwin, break it down to us. What do you think will happen?
Erwin Dudley 13:15
I think I think they will get I mean, I think their team that you know a lot of people they know me I don’t think there’s their sleep on them now but I just think no, you’ll think the team that they have the guys that they have they come together and they play well Amy got sister Jean as well. So that thing did their door of a so they’ve they’ve played some really good basketball. I mean they defended well they shot the ball. Well, I mean, I just think that they’ll they’ll get bored. I watched Oregon State play on Oklahoma, Oklahoma State. I mean, yeah, Oklahoma State. Yeah, Oklahoma State the other day. I mean, I mean, I liked them, but I just think they’re loyal. We’ll give them
Santiago Leon 13:51
your Loyola is definitely a has had some history. I was gonna say they’re another Cinderella But no, they’ve had history in the past.
Erwin Dudley 14:00
You know Cinderella anymore.
Santiago Leon 14:01
Yeah, they’re not Cinderella. No small school but like they’re definitely I’d like to say March Madness experience. I guess you can say so good for them. And their sister. Mary is a sister Mary, right? Yes, Mary. Oh, Jean. Yeah, yeah, yeah, she’s I think 102 years old. So yeah, she’s it’s just quite something story. Uh, once again. Number one, number five Villanova versus number one. hailer Texas um, break it down for us or when do you think they’ll be upset or we’ll see the favorite
Erwin Dudley 14:40
going I wouldn’t I don’t think you’ll be upset one of my one of my former teammates playing overseas raise you ready you know always give them always know talk. talk bad about Villanova or whatever. And we have is going one thing that I have going on with him, you know at No, because he played in Villanova. So we are He’s make a little small side bit, but I don’t see them. I don’t see them beating Baylor. I mean Baylor’s? I think there were around the team there. They’ve been through the trenches. They know they play really well. I mean, they they have some cars. I like what, Butler I liked the other guard Mitchell. They’re big. They run the floor Really? Well. I mean, they’re athletic. They’ll get them around Villanova. Let me Villanova is a good team but they’re not the villain over the past and I don’t see them
Santiago Leon 15:31
upsetting Philadelphia team. Baylor the favorite now or robbers number 15. Big surprise going up against Arkansas or Roberts who beat Florida and they beat Ohio State two big schools when it comes to basketball. Do it again or win?
Erwin Dudley 15:51
Now I think I think they’re I think their their, their earnings tomorrow. I don’t think that Arkansas. I really like Arkansas. I mean, I watch our console. You know, when we when they beat us down in Fayetteville, and I watched our console team. I’ve watched him a few games, you know, no, prior to that, and I watched a few games. No, after the heading. Man, Arkansas was really good team. They’re well balanced. They not even they’re greedy. They are their bigs. They have some pretty good big guard, Moses Moody, he’s people he’s really, really, really, really a good player. Like said he, you know, there’s a reason why he’s a first round pick. But I don’t think or robbers i think i think the run comes to an end tomorrow. But don’t get me wrong, though. Robert, they pay really well. I mean, they know they know they have to play a good defense. They lead the nation in free throw percentage as well. I think you’re like 88 80% or something like that. So they are I mean, they are a good team. But I think that, you know, I think that they are you know, that they are running in tomorrow,
Santiago Leon 16:54
if Roberts needed to win, I mean, what will they have to do to overcome Arkansas? Like do they have to have a big league early on? What do you think they will have to do?
Erwin Dudley 17:05
I don’t think they have they have a big league early on, I think, I think they will have to make shots, you know, to kind of to kind of give them confidence. But I also think that they have to, they will have to slow Moses. They will have to slow Modi down. They slow him down. And then there’ll be Indian, if they kind of slow down they’re Arkansas’s bigs as well. They i don’t i think they can they can get it done. But you know, that’s it’s a big task and like I say, Arkansas’s me praying really well. I mean, they, I mean, even just now I think they lost. I think like the first three or four games in sec what they didn’t, they weren’t, they weren’t playing so well. And then after that, he ran off with 10 1112 street or something like that. So they’ve, you know, they’ve battled back and they’ve been playing really well. You know, just think I just think I don’t think we’ll always have enough.
Santiago Leon 17:55
Number 11, Syracuse versus number two, Houston, Irwin, last game of Saturday Night. What’s gonna happen?
Erwin Dudley 18:04
I’m going, I’m going Houston. I watched Houston play. I’ve watched him play. I watched him play quite a few times in Houston. They have a really, really good team, Kevin samsam hand who has been playing really well. They played hard. They have learned to get up and down the floor. I think Samsung, I think you’re having ready for you know, for the Syracuse zone. Don’t get me wrong, you know, Syracuse is a team that that surprises for a surprise a lot of people because nobody expects them to be where they are. But you know, they are in the end. It does happen. But I don’t think I think Houston, I think you should go get it done.
Santiago Leon 18:41
Or one has no upsets as of yet. But we’ll see what happens on Sunday, which we’ll start with Creighton versus Gonzaga that’s hard to break. I know Gonzaga is heavily favorited but I think they’re gonna win this week. Things gonna happen.
Erwin Dudley 18:54
Yeah, same. I think same. I think they have too much. I think they’re too loaded for crane. Even though cranes playing well, but I don’t see him being
Santiago Leon 19:05
Do you think Gonzaga is that unstoppable force that no one can stop you think they are the the clear favourites for this tournament?
Erwin Dudley 19:15
I don’t think they had a clear favorites because I mean, because we did you start Didn’t we start talking about the tournament? I mean, it only takes you to have one bad night it can be one bad shooting night. One bad defensive night so I don’t think they had a clear cut favorite. Because I know they’re talented. From top to bottom where I don’t I don’t see you know, I don’t think they had a clear cut for everyone I have they’ve been playing and know better than anybody. Here. They have been playing better than anybody but again, during the tournament you could have we’ve had one bad game one off game indeed. You know, and Dane is you know your season is over.
Santiago Leon 19:52
Justin Riley, from the comments says he has bad memories from Creighton because they beat Alabama and The tournament years ago.
Erwin Dudley 20:02
Yeah, you remember that? Yeah, I do. I do. I mean, like say Creighton is no greatness. I mean they definitely good team well coached they were close team but again I think that Gonzaga they have them little bit they have a little bit too much firepower for
Santiago Leon 20:22
and I will ask you at the end of the show who is the best team to be created? But I mean Gonzaga. Great anyone? Well Gonzaga is gonna be crazy, but we’ll see anyone could beat Gonzaga and wax or win at the end of the show. So stay tuned. You mentioned this earlier. Number 14. FSU versus number one Michigan. I think you hinted FSU might win this one.
Erwin Dudley 20:43
Yeah, I got FSU went in for a subset
Santiago Leon 20:46
of the show.
Erwin Dudley 20:47
I got I got FSU winning. I mean, I’ve watched him. I mean they’re really long, really athletic. They really can stand. I mean, I like Michigan but I just I’m just going back to thinking about Linda Hamilton and you know his his tournament success over the years and you know, the teams that he had, you know, he brings you in a year out they’re really really consistent. And they go they get the job done. I don’t think Michigan I like Michigan but I don’t think they’re gonna beat Florida State.
Santiago Leon 21:16
First upset maybe many of you guys are picking FSU, but Irwin says FSU the Knowles the game of the weekend UCLA versus Alabama UCLA is number 11 Erwin you could tell us a score as well if you want over this game Yeah,
Erwin Dudley 21:37
well I can start on what I don’t like the gear score. I mean, this game right here is gonna is gonna be I think it’s gonna be way off our game but I think that I definitely think they will be will be UCLA like I stated earlier you know the way we the way we’ve been playing I mean we continue to play play the way we’ve been playing on defense i don’t i don’t see UCLA being I don’t think they have enough to beat us Don’t get me wrong UCLA has been playing really well you know even front because he was in the player play in game I watched a game as well and they’ve played really they play really well i mean they shot the ball really aware of their gods have really played well nominees Club Penguin tiger. I think it was last night at tiger. I think it’s target Louis and then they had this other other the wing guy too but he shoots the ball really well those guys have played lights out almost but I still don’t think that they’ll have they’ll have to bring it they’ll have to bring a lot more to meet us. Meet us out come Sunday I don’t see them being that
Santiago Leon 22:41
sounds like it’s gonna be a good game Alabama is favorited number seven Oregon vs number six USC Pac 12 showdown This is gonna be good Irwin. What’s gonna happen No, I understand where you’re coming from.
Erwin Dudley 23:01
Yeah, this this right here is a tough one. I swear she knows no two teams from the same conference. And I don’t even know how they how they how they fare during the regular season. I always kind of look at that and then I kind of make my decision but I’m gonna go I’m actually gonna go I’m gonna go USC I’m gonna go USC whatever the Mobley though. That might want the movie brothers. I mean, I like them. Especially Evan. I like him. I mean, he’s really active. You know, energetic. Just i think that i think that in the end I think they have that frontline. And they have. I think they are they are overpower on Oregon. I think they’ll get a win.
Santiago Leon 23:39
USC over Oregon. That might be the closest game of the weekend. Yeah, there’s a lot of games. I agree. Yeah, but that one might be the closest. Yeah, and it’s a Sunday 9:45pm so I got to drink some coffee. No, you I got to figure out a way and I probably will go out and watch that game because I can’t watch it for my home. I’ll
Erwin Dudley 24:03
fall asleep. Oh, yeah. You probably Yeah, easily since
Santiago Leon 24:06
you’re gonna have some energy. Anyways, the question was, could any team knockout Gonzaga? Can Alabama do it?
Erwin Dudley 24:15
Oh, most definitely. Definitely out there. I definitely think that that that, you know, we can do it. We, as a team as a team, we started to knock down shots on me. You saw how we played the other night. Man, when they get they get into the rhythm they start knocking down shots and and it’s hard to beat and you know, we have to be guys no knocking down shots and he likes to play play really good defense. Our people sleep on that don’t Don’t, don’t even teach him the defensive aspect sided about what different side of the ball that we bring, but we played really good defense. And so you know, I’ve always been told and i know i know that defense, defense winning championships. You know, this offers winning games, the defense winning championships. And so, right now we have the defense that we’re playing Are we there we have we definitely have a championship winning Titan defense and and I definitely think that we we definitely can be Gonzaga they are not gonna say I know they’re dead talented top from top to bottom and we are having to top to bottom you know as well but again i think that i think that you know, a team that can do it I think that we’re We are the team that can be because
Santiago Leon 25:23
something that is been talked about with a lot of sports pundants in Alabama can do it and with the leadership of coach Oates, I believe that they can, but they got to play each other and see, they go through FSU, and then hopefully Gonzaga so it’s gonna be an exciting tournament. It’s different different vibe. So we 16 begins this weekend the Elite Eight till March 29 and 30th the semi finals April 3 and the final April 5. And looking forward to these gains panning out and great to see college basketball. Once again playing after two years of no March Madness. Glad to see this back again. It’s been working out great. I think one team had to go home because of COVID So so far, so good. People are pretty tight lipped. Last night NBA tread trade season was over a couple few moves heat the Miami Heat acquired Victor Allah depot. Erwin, what are your thoughts over that?
Erwin Dudley 26:27
man that’s a big pickup for them. A big picture for them. You know, just you know, they already have a good core of guys. They have BAM and dinheiro Jimmy Butler and then the was forgot the love and the kids be gardening? None. None. He’s been he’s been playing well. And then the dragon shimmy. He’s been he I mean, even in the bubble. You know, it’s past season. I mean, he was playing really, really well until he got hurt. But for them to have to pick up a guy spirits guy and I got I can no I can bring to bring in another 20 points or so to the to the team and you know, you can plug them in you know, plug them into your roster just like that. I mean, there’s another guy in office you know, I didn’t see him. I mean, he got about at Euston. I didn’t see him staying in Houston or whatever, even after this season. But they you know, train him to Miami and I think that Miami will be one of the teams that would they can definitely get to the Eastern Conference Finals you know, and I think of course everybody knows that they know the favorite to favorite of them to win Eastern Conference, you know without with with Daryl being so loaded. Well, I think that that piece that they were they’re adding Victrola depot I mean that that’s a big plus for them because they’re gonna need it because when you got harden and Kyrie and you got the rent all those guys are helping me and and then you add in the other guys other pieces around. I mean, come I mean, you can’t even I mean, I mean, they’re almost unstoppable team I went off and found a defense for their own offensive side of the ball and they can really score the ball really, really scored above
Santiago Leon 28:12
and the potential of acquiring Eldridge from the Spurs is a possibility that will strengthen the mind can’t be
Erwin Dudley 28:24
seen as I mean, you can’t you really can’t at all.
Santiago Leon 28:27
It’s gonna be quite a basketball season this year, both for college and professional. Last year was okay with the bubble. But I think this year is definitely more potent. You know, because you’re going to other teams stadiums, and playing I believe most of the stadiums by the playoffs will have some fans at a certain capacity but definitely looking at a strong basketball year. And this weekend, it begins this weekend, I say, anyways, a poll question of the day, Irwin, what goes best with spinach? The options are eggs, cheese or pallets.
Erwin Dudley 29:14
I like I do I mean I’ve done eggs I’ve done a salad we’re just kind of you really just kind of pan but I’ll definitely go with salad. Salad.
Santiago Leon 29:25
Yeah, when I go to subway, I request the Spanish not the regular lettuce. Yeah. Anyways, Irwin, what is the best way to reach you online?

And so I try to stay away from that. But like I said, I love interacting with fans always. I mean, I, you know, I have fans that reach out to me even from when I played overseas, overseas, I had a guy reached out to me a couple nights ago, you know, talking to me about, you know, playing playing overseas and stuff. So I like interacting, because, you know, he just, I try to just try to control you know, who you know who comes into my account or whatever like that, who I add to my account.
