What about the at the anticipation of that -- the the Notre Dame Syracuse is coming to the conference and how it will change how will look and this new relationship. Well I think it's really exciting. First of all we -- when you bring in schools of equality. Of those schools. Pitt and Syracuse and Notre Dame now all coming at you out of the first of this year. And taken -- to a fifteen member conference and then movable. Seamlessly in the Guillen as Maryland. Exits. I think it's really exciting to have that these schools coming in.
