Their Service Entitles Them To Low-Cost Loans. But Veterans Often Pay More.
"John. Four is a retired marine corps. Colonel he served for twenty seven years. Did you see the big fish jumped for is giving me a virtual tour of his harbourside house in a development in punto gorda florida. He's got a dock and a little powerboat and can you see the pool. Oh yeah oh. That's gorgeous yeah all right. Can you see the kayaks and the dock. Actually four is making me kind of jealous of his house at the start of the year interest rates were falling and he wanted to refinance with the. Va loan that has alone backed by the us. Department of veterans affairs vets and service members are supposed to be able to an extra low interest rate and better terms that way so you started calling around and he says the company loaned depot told him we can do. Va loan for you. But it's going to be at three seven five percent interest and they had a lot of fees in there but it was a lower rate than he had at the time so he says he was just about to do the deal with lump depot when he happened to see an ad for. Va loan to a company. Called own up. He went through them and he says he paid lower fees and got more than a full percentage point lower on the rate on his three hundred and thirty thousand dollar loan. That means about twenty five hundred dollars a year in lower payments. He he says when he went back and told loan depot about the better deal. They then offered him a much lower rate to as a veteran. You expect you're getting something from the government. I i was shocked that they didn't just tell me outright. What the best rate. What's a lot of veterans. Assume the same thing according to patrick boy adji. He's the ceo of own up. It's a new company that helps people find a good deal on home loans through a group of different lenders. He says veterans think. They're supposed to get a really good interest rate on a. Va loan so many. Don't shop around but says while these loans are backed by the va they're made by private companies and he says some will head people with much higher costs and basically a worse deal than they qualify for. And they're veterans the. Sit there and think to yourself that this person who served our country is now going to get taken advantage of. And they had no clue they had no idea so in his company did a study. They're releasing it today. They took the top twenty lenders for va loans and looked at the annual percentage rate that the companies charged borrowers on all the loans they made last year and so when we looked at the spread candidly. We were quite surprised that it was as wide as it. Was that the best lenders. And the worst lenders were so far apart from one another. The study found that navy. Federal credit union offered people. The lowest rates at the other higher cost end of the spectrum was a lender called new day. Usa it's a new day for veterans. Who want to refinance at me as a vet. The company is a sponsor of the army navy. Football game it runs. Tv ads with plenty of american flags. We wanna do whatever is best for the individual service person. The study found that of the top twenty. Va lenders new day charged. The highest interest rates more than a full percentage point higher the navy federal which over the life of three hundred thousand dollar thirty year loan is more than seventy thousand dollars. More in interest payments new day in a statement said that the study has a quote serious flaw. It said that's because the study lumps together different types of va loans. That are not the same but michael. Hoon is skeptical of that explanation. He's the president of the non-profit center for responsible lending. The information from this lender does not explain their borrowers are being charged so much more than other lenders are charging. Their va borrowers as far as loan depot. The company that john four. I talked to the study. Found that during two thousand nineteen. It's rates were about average. The company is also a recent financial supporter of npr biology. With own up says the big takeaway from his study for him is that people need to shop around and find the best rate that they can and negotiate for the best rate. Because if you don't it could be one of the most costly mistakes you make in your financial life that's good advice for. Va loans and other types of mortgages to chris arnold npr

Unpacking Palantirs Public Debut: CEO Alex Karp
"This is squawk pod I'm CNBC producer Katie Kramer today on our podcast. unpacking Pailin, tear the high profile highly secretive software company has operated quietly for seventeen years and it's finally on the public markets. And -ticipant I I think for maybe the past ten years CEO Elon on why it it took. So long my lawyers will shoot me what I can tell you is we are very very focused on building software a longtime before other people building and how he expects to become profitable with a small, but mighty and mighty controversial of customers. Well, how can you have the Super Valuable Company? They're only a hundred and twenty-five customers to which I respond. Yeah. But one, hundred, twenty, five most. Interesting institutions in the world I would ask people who are watching this to make a list of the institutions they admire in the world, and then roughly figure out if they're using pounder that interview plus the politics behind listing journalist Joanne Lipman fits a company that is very, very closely aligned with the trump administration. There's a huge question here about what happens if trump does not win the presidency it's Thursday October first October twenty twenty the year is still twenty twenty squawk pot begins right now. Good morning and welcome the squawk box right here on CNBC. I'm Andrew Ross Sorkin along with Joe Kernan Becky off today. Today on the PODCAST volunteer goes public analytics company that is usually described as secretive debuted yesterday the direct listening selling new shares on the New York Stock Exchange covered live on CNBC how tears for trading why secretive well here is named after magical orb and Lord of the Rings. But in seventeen year history, it hadn't made much public volunteer received early funding from the venture arm of the CIA and provide software products designed to crunch numbers. One of these programs is called Gotham and it's for government clients. Who Need to organize an understand massive amounts of data. So surveillance predictive policing, possibly rooting out potential terrorism threats, Pailin tear works with US Army Navy Department of Homeland Security and it's working with health and human services to help track the spread of Corona virus case data that we just recorded. We can immediately narrow into emerging hotspot counties, notable backers of talent tear include investor, and Co founder Peter Thiel who has gotten attention for his conservative politics and support of president trump in the two thousand, sixteen campaign. Evening. I'm Peter Thiel I'm not a politician, but neither is donald trump as well as his work technology companies. He was facebook's first big investor other pollen tear backers include wall streeters like Hanlon and Stanley Druckenmiller when talent tear filed paperwork with the SEC to pursue publising listing earlier this year it's called the swan event is finally got a sense of the books turns out pollen tear had never turned a profit and. A, huge chunk of its revenue came from its three biggest clients which are anonymous in the first six months of twenty twenty. It's revenue of nearly half a billion dollars a big jump from the year before this was addressed by pollen tear CEO, Alex Carp investor roadshow, which true to carbs personality, and true to the weirdness of twenty twenty was virtual and started on cross country skis. Welcome to Powell, tears investor day. We're very proud to have you here. Carp is an Orthodox for a CEO. He has amazing curly hair. He uses the modifier super allot super cool and speaking to potential investors. He made the pitch for the importance of Pailin tears purpose. This way of looking at the world war literally savior situation and in many cases Save Your Life Allen to has moved beyond. Just government clients fifty-three percent of its customers are in the private sector big name businesses who use a software program called foundry include Airbus Merck Ferrari and United Airlines but it's work for governments here and others around the world stuck to its reputation allentown faced criticism from privacy groups and for its work with the US Customs and border. Patrol. Tracking immigrants at the border. But Carp in the company not backed off in. That s one filing the leader of this highly valuable tech uniform said, Pailin tears work is different in his view software missions to keep safe may have become controversial but companies built on advertising dollars are commonplace and carp took aim at big tech culture directly writing quote our company was founded in Silicon Valley. But we seem to share fewer and fewer of the technology sectors, values and commitments. Helen tear moved its corporate headquarters to Denver and its shares headed to Wall Street. If you think, we are going to change our internal culture drastically if you think we're going to work with regimes that are not allied with the US enter abusing human rights if you think. that. That the future is going to be a super rosie place where the past ways of supplying software are going to work because enterprises and governments do not need to be reformed you should not invest in pounder. Andrew. Ross Sorkin has interviewed Alex Carpet number of times. This conversation was reported Wednesday yesterday right after the first trade for here on the New York. Stock Exchange. We've had lots of conversations over the years. This has been probably one of the most highly anticipated offerings or listings in a very long time. Almost every year that we would talk in Davos I would invariably ask you are you going to go public? Are you gonNA list and invariably you wouldn't. So let's start with why now? Well, first of all, thank you for having me and I and I really would like to thank all the pound tyrians who stuck with us and built this company and our investors you're stuck with us and you know over the years we've been skeptical about listing and for lots of reasons, we really needed to build our products. With enough protection so that we would be ready to launch them into the public space. And we built we built out PG government and foundry product and and built a way to maintain them so that we wouldn't have to scale the number of people and. You know we've reached a base where where our company's very significant and we believe being in the public space will help us with our clients and help us grow and quite frankly I believe the people apparently who built this company over seventeen years. Deserved a access to liquidity. So we we decided this would be great time for us and so far. It's been a really interesting process and and our clients are embracing it. So it's a really good time for us and I'm very, very grateful. Outlets. The single biggest question that investors ask about this company is seventeen years in while you know may have an operating profit, the company unto itself is still not profitable. So so walk us through what the path to profitability looks like. Well, you know we build these products years before people build them, and that takes money and what you see in the cove it pandemic crisis is we had built this way of going to market with foundry, which would allow us to literally supply an enterprise with a completely new stack of products within six hours and maintain them. And what you saw when we did that is we grew the company forty, nine, percent, forty, nine percent off of a seven, forty, three base and the divergence between expenses and in growth is dramatic. And we're just going to be very very focused on on an invigorating, our software offering. But when you're growing forty-nine percent off of a seven forty base. I think that's a pretty strong indication of what the future could hold and we're super proud of that and I think you're seeing that people are taking a look at our financials and our our company is often been used viewed as complex and. Needing explanation both moral and financial but it turns out our financials are quite simple and you look at this dramatic growth with flat lining expenses and I think that gives investors comfort and it certainly makes me feel as. Co Founder and CEO that we made the right decision to invest heavily over well over a decade in building software, the way other people don't to build it and you see the results do you think the profitability is at twenty twenty, two, proposition twenty, twenty, three proposition can I put you on that? Well, you you can push me but of course, my lawyers will shoot me I can tell you what I can tell you is we are very very focused on building software a time before other people building, supplying it and I think that are year I. First Half of the year growth will be reflective of the future and if I'm right. That will answer all of your interesting questions and we'll be interviewing. You'll be interviewing me again maybe not a Davos but virtually, and we'll see how we do. Confident confident we'll do well. Alex, one of the other questions people ask is how to comp your company meaning what are the comparable should this be considered a technology company as SAS company or should this could be considered a much more traditional consulting company? Can you speak to that? Well I think what the investors are seeing is they're asking the question at this point they used to ask is this is this a company that built software for the government and how do they build it? Of course we always sold this as a license. Then they saw our margins of the first half of the year round eighty percent. So I think the real debate now is. Move significantly away from is this software services because although people think we're very smart, we're not smart enough to get eighty percent margins off of a services company. The question then is, how do you comp it and honestly I think that's something investors will have to figure out. We're not focused on that we're focused on we are going to be the most important software company in the world. And people will figure out what valued over a long period of time and we're very comfortable with investors toying around it could be like this. It could be like that. We are going to deliver the best software. With the morals most efficient way of delivering it investors will decide what's that. What's that were is worth to them and I think you'll find a number of years that will be a consensus. Palette. Here is a truly special software company that is arguably the most important software company in the world. Alex has everybody knows You have contracts with various government agencies, obviously and some of the bluest of the blue chip companies in America today, but it's a concentrated list of about one hundred and twenty-five companies. About Twenty eight percent of the revenue actually comes from three of those clients unto themselves. Two thirds of the revenue comes from the top twenty. How much of a risk does that pose on one side but also when you think about the opportunity on the other, if we're having a conversation like this in in twelve or twenty, four months, how much do you want that list to increase in size or do you just want to keep that group effectively and a effectively raise the margin or cost for those clients? And grow that business. Well, we want to do all the we're going to do all of the above. So interesting about our client list people people ask, well, how can you have the super? Valuable Company they're only one hundred and twenty-five customers to which I respond but one hundred and twenty-five most interesting institutions in the world. These aren't just any institutions. The literally, I would ask people who are watching this to make. A list of the institutions they admire in the world and then roughly figure out if they're using, we don't go out and advertise our product, but I would say the list of our clients is the single most impressive institutions in the world I've ever seen we. So we want to keep these clients. Also investors will of noticing in the one that well over ninety percent of our growth in the first half of the. Year came from our existing clients. What does that mean our existing clients? The most important clients in the world are really happy that's what it means. So of course, we're going to expand those really happy clients who happen to be the coolest people on the planet, and then we've built this product which has gotten very little attention called Apollo Apollo allows us to maintain and deliver software to any number of clients with essentially. Not growing our our force apparent and force at all. So we're planning now that we have Apollo to grow the number of super cool customers all over the world, and we can do it without raising our headcount, and so what you're going to see is we're going to continue building with our clients why they're the most interesting clients in the world and they clearly based on our numbers like us and some of us. We are going to expand our client base. Why? Because now with Apollo, we can deliver the whole stack in six hours. I don't think any other company I've ever seen in the world can do that, and we can do with efficiencies that I don't know any other companies going to do because we can do this with a small number of people sitting in our office that we have maintaining, updating and providing them with new products we built. So they don't have the Frankenstein monster that takes two years to build and has to be maintained with either human hours like in the government contracting case or by purchasing new product or compensating sales people or behind. It people you don't even talking to you can actually buy one stack. So we are going to increase revenue with current customers, get new customers and continue our march. Alex how easier heart is because I know you've talked about trying to keep things in in terms of the platform if you will how he's your heart it for four clients to leave in terms of the churn. Well, as I mentioned, ninety, five percent of our revenue comes from existing customers. So customers, obviously if a customer wants to leave they, can I think the main reason our customers stay besides the fact that the output is very significant as they look at this product, we supply foundry the average customers paying less than six million dollars and they compare it to buying twenty products paying ongoing licensing. Fees. You can't get out of or building something over years, and the last thing they compare it to is we're not delivering a roadmap. Most people are living roadmap of what are you going to get in a year we're delivering a product after six hours so customers can leave. But what you see in the numbers is they by and large don't, and it's not because of my charming personality. Alex well, let me ask you a different question. We've had lots of fascinating geopolitical and philosophical questions about the role of technology and Pailin tear itself as well as the approaches silicon valley has taken. I'm curious in terms of risks how you think about this Amnesty International as you know, criticized, the company recently for its role of working with ice. How much of that does that pose a risk to the larger business? Especially, the corporate business at a time when we have corporations at taking both political positions and also being oftentimes being socially at activist. To Your Business Well, look the fact that we take positions that are sometimes controversial can cost. US clients. But it also gets us. Clients because when we talked to a client and we say look we're going to work with you. We're not gonNA walk away just because the winds change and this is super important especially to our government clients if you're supplying special forces and army and the US, those clients have to know that they will not be left on the battlefield. Because a because Silicon Valley has decided they don't like the warfighter. So of course that costs revenue many of our decisions of cost US revenue we only work in certain countries we've walked away from work because if human rights issues we've said, we disagree with very prominent human rights organizations and we engage in dialogue but also by the way is a reason why I Think people who are watching this may consider investing or not investing. We are not going to stand up here and say we're for everybody we're not going to pretend, and by the way we're going to try avoid jargon. We will actually tell you what we think it's not going to be created by fifty media people it may have to be carried by a couple. Of Lawyers but one of the unique things about power tears, we actually say things and we actually stick to them and that's something not everyone likes but many of our customers do and by the way I think it is a reason why ninety five percent of our revenue comes from customers because when we tell them, we're going to deliver we are going to deliver. Alex. One of the other questions now you all republic company. But as you know, you have three tiers of stock classes of shares that is and to some degree there have been critics who said, this is effectively a private company masquerading as a public company. Can you speak to the decision to structure the shares the way that they are structured and how governance experts and folks should think about that I think it's important for government experts to look and make an deliver opinion but I would also ask them to consider the environment we live in pound tear has been in silicon valley up till recently for seventeen years and in silicon. Valley. Defending the. warfighter providing our troops with technology that allowed them to come home is very controversial. I do not believe a company like ours that makes really consequential decisions for government clients and non-government clients could be run without an F. share structure and I understand there's criticisms investors look and say, well, why should talent you're having F. structure? What is my? What is my what? What can I do if? I don't agree with them. The primary reason why we fought for an structure and we asked investors to buy into it was we need to be able to go to our especially our Intel and defense clients and say, we will not just blow with the wind. And does shares for a company like ours gives us a unique ability to have long-term commitments to the most important clients in the world, both commercial and government, and that's why I believe they're super important, and I also again would encourage people if that's not something you're comfortable with there are many shares to buy. We don't have to buy challenge your shares. You should buy shares knowing that these shares reflect our views. Alex we've often had these conversations in Davos where globalization has ruled the roost but as you know so well, the world seems to be shifting to a globalized world, a splinter net if you will. How do you think long term that will affect the business of here We made this decision, which is actually a secret only because no one believes it's true which is that we didn't solve the problem of fighting terrorism. We solve the problem of doing data protection and fighting terrorism, and the architecture we built both PG and for foundry will allow a super set to work with subsets, which means if the world's splinters and every country has its own jurisdictions, it's GonNa be very hard for normal software companies because they're not built to do that but it's going to be very good for Palette here and finally Alex. Decision five years from now today. How would you measure success? Here, what would be the metrics which measure it? We know they're there obviously financial metrics but I'll tell you Powell cheer has recruited and retained I believe the most interesting most talented most ethical people I've ever met and we work I've interacted with thousands of institutions and in five years when meet I think he'll say to me. Wow, that wasn't just you saying that because it was the right thing to say it's actually true. And the products that will build over that period we'll we'll. We'll be unique and they will tilt the course of history. In favor of things that are good and noble. And will not avoid the complexity that's necessary to do that outlets. Carpool. You lots of luck and we do look forward to having that conversation hopefully in five years. But hopefully sooner than that. Thanks so much Alex.
Call of Duty
"Army navy and air. Force. All Have East sports teams, serious gaming teams that compete in tournaments and these days. You can find members of those military east sports teams on twitch playing first person shooters like call of duty warzone. Oh Fuck on Yegor could end typically what it looks like. You know the video game is dominating the screen. There's a chat room that runs on the side and people could ask you questions or like joke around with you. Go down and. That was close the military version of this is people in the military, usually in a a uniform and when I say uniform I mean Niece Sports GonNa form okay. But looks more like like an Athletic Jersey branded as the army or the navy. And they're playing the game. and talking to people that come into the room. Mid People ask them questions about the navy or the army like what life is like there and they talk about it. It's like office hours for the military but over video games. Right exactly gamers forever have been sitting on a couch with each other like playing video games and like talking and hanging out. wildwood. Girlfriend law twitch is a way to. Do that on a worldwide scale right and so what the military is hoping is that they can get into that space to like start a conversation with potential recruits to understand how we got here. Matthew says you have to go back in time we want to go back to like twenty eighteen. So in two, thousand, eighteen, the military has a recruitment problem. It's struggling to reach the right audience because they're putting their money in the wrong place they've been spending money on television for years, tens of millions of dollars. And it's not working. It's not getting the same amount of return as used to young people are watching television at the they used to be. Now I'm sure you've already reached this conclusion but the young people there on the Internet watching Youtube twitch. So the military changes tactics, the navy, the most transparent about this. So we're going to use their figures to illustrate the change in strategy in two thousand seventeen the navy spent almost half of its advertising budget on TV ads but by twenty, twenty, ninety, seven percent of the Navy's advertising budget was set aside for online advertising. So they've taken all the money that they're spending on television ads sporting events, and they're reinvesting that into digital spaces. Hello it's me William the Navy Hires Youtubers, like William, Osmond to make video set on. Naval Bases Navy has challenged me to an actor. He's known for making wacky engineering videos like Jackass. Meets mythbusters in one Video Osmond tors around naval base airplanes and helicopters. Rolling out. There have a car a thorough. He's quite the contrast of the pair of really stiff navy cadets showing him around, and here's another way. The navy starts putting money and energy into digital spaces. It starts investing in East sports teams, and so do other branches of the military. Here's a Promo for the army's team which formed in two thousand nineteen. It sounds too good to be true. But yes, the army has created in East sports team and is actively looking for soldiers to wear the black and gold as competitive gamers. tryouts for the team were held this year and members of the team will specialize in certain games either as individual players or part of multi-player squats. Before the pandemic, the military's E. sports teams would put on Athletic East Sports, uniforms, and compete in in-person tournaments or go to gaming conferences. But when large events shutdown these started streaming their game play online for while this entire thing, this military gaming program seemed to fly under the radar. The streams only got a couple dozen viewers at a time, but then as so often happens on the Internet with a single viral post everything changed.
Hypersonics: Where the Technology is and Where it is Going
"We're here to talk about hypersonic technologies, and you know the really changing the world for military competition among the world's nations to create weapons so fast and maneuverable. They're very hard to shoot down to innovations that could enable rapid civilian travel from New York to Hong Kong or multi-stage access to space. These hypersonic pursuits are really pushing the boundaries. Of National Budgets and the laws of physics. Wanted to turn to Graham, I He really helped. Conceive of a grand package of stories. We have on hypersonic weapons and hypersonic technologies and I wondered if you could give us a broad overview and a snapshot of these developments. For our listeners. Yes, so the mantra of hype has always been that. Hypersonic is the future and always will be well the news as that. this is the future or getting close to the future we after decades and decades of on and off development we, we have several hypersonic weapons programs that are that are getting close to. That are either in the early stages of operation. If they're in Russia or China, or the US are getting close to operation so. So, we thought it was a good time to sort of bring our readers up to speed. Both on the on those weapons systems that are that are in those final stages of development early stages of deployment. the evolving. Field of how do we counter these weapons? Because as you say, there are very very difficult to to intercept. And also, to really make clear to people that we are just at the beginning, even after all these decades we are still just at the beginning of this journey, and there are an awful lot of technical challenges that still lie ahead for hypersonic spirit, really to to realize its potential and become more than just a a niche capability more than just you know, in essence, very limited capability, but something that is much more flexible incapable of our time, and as you say, could be used in in applications well beyond the initial military applications. So this was an attempt to sort of. Take a step back and take a look at where we got to, but where we also still have to go. Steve I wanted to turn to you next to. You really delved into our. The United States is. Hyper Sonics Offensive and defensive weapons capabilities. It seems like the US is is. In a transition phase from Technological Development to really winnowing that field down to technologies that might be producible. Can you talk about some of? The the most viable programs that are underway. The army has one. Why don't you start? Challenge where to start right I mean there's three different tracks of hypersonic. Weapons there's four different operational prototypes at least three different demonstrators. Those are just the ones we know of when we talked to contractors like Lockheed and Raytheon. They say they're also working on a couple of classified programs that we're not totally sure what what they are. Let me start in kind of picking up on where Graham was You know saying we're here, we're we're in the age of Hyper Sonics. And really that began on a specific day. It was Mayford twenty seventeen. That was when the secretary of the Air Force at the time. Lisa Diso signed the authorization. For the for the requirement of the airlines, rapid response weapon and that was A. That is a historic moment in the era of hypersonic. That was the first time military service stood up and said we are going to. Weaponize this technology. This thing that we've been working on and you know playing with experimenting with for decades we're GONNA make it a weapon now. Obviously, they were doing that because Russia and China already beat them to the punch. In in that case, but The for US hypersonic technology. It was an historic moment So you know And, that was the air force doing it the army navy weren't that far behind after completing a fleet experiment. One of the Common Hypersonic Glide Body in November of two thousand, seventeen the army and navy made the commitment to jump in to hypersonic weapons programs as well. So where we are today, so it's three years on. A. we you know we're starting to just like every other weapons development program in Hightech. You know endeavor from the Pentagon. There are some issues right? Arrow is probably about a year behind schedule. It's risk reduction effort. Darpa working on. The tactical boost glide program. It's also a year behind schedule The overall program is thirty nine thirty nine percent over budget going to the Government Accountability Office. They've had to cancel one program. The Hypersonic Conventional Strike Weapon, which was going to use the same common hypersonic right buddy that would be the army and the navy versions of the same missile. They canceled that diverted the funding to cover the offset in Arrow. And the meantime they've also launched a follow onto a scrim jet powered missile demonstrator. So, there's been a lot of different moving
Printing 3D Facemasks for Frontline workers with Madison Bondoc, e-NABLE D.C. Chapter Lead
"What's happening in older. They're like so you're stationed over with you know your your job is that you're a biomedical. Engineer consultant. How how big is this particular row and is it like? Are you part of a like a giant team? All medical engineers like yourself or is there like a small contact movements right so so. How does this breaking down? We're all in one building so we have the army navy and then the air force so with the biomedical engineers and the Navy and actually just a small group of maybe eight members including myself and we were the ones that focus on making sure you know all the medical equipment requests for the navy and clinics are Fulfiled got so as a clinical engineer. What would what does that mean? You know what I'm saying like how like okay. So you fix these machines yourself like you. You meet vendors that create these machines and these contractors than you just kind of like sign off something as solid or not like. What does that mean right? Yeah so yeah because I also had to learn about this going into the job I had no idea what does clinical engineer for the navy for the government means and unlike the typical engineer jobs where they're more hands on you know building or fixing or more on the contracting side and consulting so you know my day job is. I kinda correspond with the hospital personnel as well as vendors that sell the medical equipments and I kind of worked together with our contracting shop in the Navy division to set up contracts men to procure you know. Mri scanners CD's scanners all whatever equipment. You know. That is the need for the specific hospital in clinic so it's lot email corresponding Sometimes there's vendors sites and site visits where we go to the hospital just to check you know what they have in their inventory or what they need and we're also kind of the middleman between the hospital and the vendors you know just making so. It's it's a lot of paperwork. It's a lot of email is not you don't you. Don't get get your hands dirty as much. Yeah no yeah no no hands dirty for me. More of just typing away. The computer phone calls emails so but I mean I'm sure when you what you studied in school was in like I like you need to know how to communicate with a vendor who specializes in making. Mri Scans you know what I'm saying. Like what like. What are they teach you in school to prepare for his role or is there not even a preparation stage in school? Like you just study all the theories and you know what I mean and then you have this degree so now you figure it out right because actually you know when I was in Grad School for Biomedical Engineering. You know the the job description of clinical engineering and you know the roles and responsibilities were in even you know known of until I applied for the job Yeah like you said for Education we're more or more taught to be more design oriented in terms of engineering so prototyping designing physically working with medical devices and machines. So that's kind of how were taught in school and then you know once we're out you know that's that's that and there's jobs just like the clinical cheer that don't require per se you know us having to be in that design oriented mind There's like office jobs as I am doing right now and more logistics school didn't prepare me for this by you know as
Tom's Journey With Drugs and AA
"My name is Tom. And I'm an addict and that's probably one of the things that I want to address. I is that Komo always a little bit hesitant to speak at an AA meeting. Because I don't have a drinking history that is going to be very involved but It was almost exclusively drugs for me. And and I apologize if that because of that. You can't relate or anything like you know anything like that but So I grew up in a small town in South Alabama about ten thousand people and Aw so pretty normal You know elementary school and you know L. High School and like I always had a girlfriend all through elementary school and really I did all through high school but along about puberty are so I began to realize my attraction attraction to other boys men so when in my town the when you leave six excreted you go straight to so in and I was just terrified of this Going to high school because in the seventh grade you have have all grades. I had seniors in my physical education class. When I was in in in high school I was in the seventh grade and the rumor was that the seventh graders are all going to have their pants ripped off and run up the flagpole and so that was a fear to however soon I began to enjoy physical education as you know it was a chance for me to peer at other boys and everything and I was kind of realizing that what I was hoping it was was a phase and but you know I didn't know anything anything about it or anything like that so you know I was hoping that it might go away one day and that everybody you know maybe everybody goes through a phase like this? Yes but it didn't go away and of course you know I've I've always joked that in in my town like being gay would be You know akin to or or let me put put it this way. I always used to say that the Guy who robbed the liquor store and shot the clerk would be more respected than a gay person. I'm in my town so you know. Of course I I kept that all client and you know whether this can you know this will come up because it hasn't I I. My story has a lot to do with my story with drugs has a lot to do with sex so in college college. I smokes marijuana in my freshman year. But it didn't get off but finally I I kind of came out in the summer of my junior between my junior and senior year in college and you know had sex for the first time and STARTED GOING TO ATLANTA. I went to school at Auburn. Which is in Alabama and it's about two hours from Atlanta so I started going to Atlanta a lot and so I would like go to Atlanta on Friday night state state of the bars closed and then come back to football game on Saturday then go back to Atlanta on Saturday night has stayed in the bars? Close rolling down windows and doing all kinds of things to to keep myself awake while I was doing all that driving. But so you know I was given pot and so in my my senior year I got off on pot and I you know I had been drinking and I noticed like all during my fraternity parties parties and all that other guys seem to get a lot more fun out of it than I did because I would get you know when I got to where I could feel it I would enjoy it for about an hour or so and then I get really hungry and I'd WanNa eat then I wanna go to sleep. And then the next day it was always always a at least a twenty four hour recovery for me. There was no question how about after I had been drunk. Was I going to go to this class the next day or anything like that. I was praying to the porcelain goddess the entire day so when I discovered pod that was like oh now I've got something that I can do at parties but immediately my friends changed and this was back in like nineteen seventy three seventy four and so you know it was Kinda like it would be kind of like you know so okay okay. I became a person that you're cool. If you smoke pod you know you kinda like would say hey eighties Mojo year. I smoke all this kind of stuff and so would I am I band and my other friends and so I was. I was in. ROTC in college and So I immediately went into the airforce right after college. I was a pretty big whoop empty. Do in ROTC and college. I was like the Cadet Commander of Air Force Army Navy Navy. ROTC for this big presentation celebration and all this kind of stuff. Even though I had begun smoking pot and hitting the gay bars ars on the weekends and so when I got into the air force I was going to go. I was in in pilot training and so you know while I was flying these planes with an instructor all that kind of stuff. I thought this is not going to be very good. pot-smoking job so I was thinking I began to think about. Okay now. What do I want to do? You know that would be a good pot-smoking job and so and immediately by the way when I started smoking pot I never expected as much from me after that. My my whole self esteem or what. I thought that I might become all of that was never was never the same name so I was thinking pop truck driver. That would be a good pot-smoking job especially since I seem to have to have a joint everywhere. I went in the car. You know which is ridiculous so Douglas. Maybe you can identify with with that. I mean you know because it's just you know it's dangerous for that too but but it seemed like like a good idea at the time so I eliminated myself from pilot training and became an administrative officer and so but the night before I started pilot training. I need to go back. That was used to go. I was stationed in Selma Alabama Emma all places and used to go to Atlanta on the weekends and so I was at this guy who let me stay at his house when I would go to Atlanta and he was having a party and he gave me there was a little bit of powder on the end of a knife and he you gave it to me just swallow. And so that was when I first discovered met and we never. We never mentioned the word meth back. Then we always called Krystal a nice a nice sounding word and so I thought and an identified like. Here's the point where identify a lot with people whose drug of choice is alcohol. Because immediately I thought where has this. I've been all my life. I know what's wrong with me. This must be how normal people feel and so I was you you know I felt better looking. I was a better conversationalist I had deep conversations that night with people that I couldn't stand And and You know I just thought this was you know I've said this before that. So what's wrong with me is I've been suffering from a meth deficiency Z. Crystal deficiency and so. I thought that that was the answer. And of course it turned on me. I got caught during the Air Force in the Air Force with a with a test. Urine urine test best. They called it operation golden flow so I got caught and I lied my way out. You know they. The Command base commander called me and he said like there were there. Were two positives in the test and Lieutenant Sawyer. One of them was yours and I go mine why he said well. You tested positive for him. Fatemi so I go amphetamine for me. What could that be you know and I said Oh I was in Vancouver? I was stationed in Upper Washington state. Right on the Canadian border. I said well I was was in Vancouver the last week and I was going to go skiing the next day and a guy gave me this diet this diet. Take this and you won't be tired tired. And so and I said I thought a diet pill which is something you could buy. I didn't know that it was anything wrong with that. Just lying through my teeth the whole time know exactly what it was but so I had to pee for a month in the you know. Oh every every week for a month and but I did get my self out of that but even you know during that during during that month I was thinking all kinds of ways. Like how could I scheme to Be Able to do some crystal and not get caught in the urinalysis Ossis but so after I got out of the Air Force I went back went to graduate school and I I was only there a couple of quarters and then I I dropped Out and I I moved to Atlanta. which is where my disease really took

When it comes through delight your just misbehaving over there? uh-huh which is appropriate brings us into round two talking a little misbehaving. Thank you have any of you ever ever plagiarized. Yes No I. Don't think so. That certainly not tweets county put plagiarizing happens all the time like. Let's see Oh ours like I know like if you're writing a report on somebody you constantly go and grab something that you saw a great great line of leadership or whatever and then you put it in there. That's what I mean not on like a school papers. No nothing like that. Well I speak Brian. You say you hate when people plagiarize tweets. It happens all the time time I did one the other day we were talking about. How spotify has been showing everybody their top five songs of the year and their most listened to and we talk about my own grain for a good amount? Sounds like Oh. Wouldn't it be funny if porn sent you your top five. Here's how like here's how many minutes you spent on each video. Here's how whatever And so I tweeted it out. It was just a dumb kind. The thing I said it out loud as chaplain are in Brooklyn earlier this week and I was like Oh. Wouldn't it be funny so I tweeted it out and immediately like ten other people tweeted at me and we're like skews me. I already tweeted that last week like but it was because it was just such an unoriginal thought I guess then I was like I have this hilarious idea. Twenty million other people had had the same joke including porn themselves. But when you have one hundred million twitter users that's going to happen right. That's Kinda yes that's out there but it made me. I was like Oh man. I hope nobody thinks I- plagiarized I didn't plagiarize is not my style not my cup of tea But there's a little story from the military coming to us from military dot com the lovely hope Hodge sack She says that the Army Deputy Chief of staff for army logistics has been retired at a lower rank after a watchdog investigation found. He plagiarized work for for his master's degree at the army. Work Haulage Carlisle. PA when he was just a young. Lieutenant Colonel Lieutenant General Andrei PG PG Colegio. I'll say it with a flare g clear. Sixty has retired as a lowly major general now Brian. How many stars is that for for you? Know How you remember that be my little Jan Royal. BMG Brigadier Major Little Lieutenant General. Okay eight bucks little stolen valor. Kate strikes anyways he had to retire as a lowly major general girl instead of the tenant general after the Army War College Academic Review Board determined that Peggy had committed plagiarism. While at the school where he received his master's degree in military strategy all the way back in two thousand and to have a lot of questions about that the Review Board revoked the degree and amended his record to reflect a failure to complete graduation requirements. And I was actually a little surprised how I felt about this because normally on the one. I'm like cool with cheating. You could this and jobs like unlike dude. No I'm actually kind of on the side of who gives a fuck fit in two thousand and two he plays is a little bit on. I don't know no I just feel I take the degree not the rink because I mean but you do have to have those degrees to get that ranked so I kind of understand it but it to me. How much did you plagiarized plagiarized? And it's like a paragraph or two that he copy and paste it from another one without citing at like and it wasn't necessarily intentional or militias. He just didn't cite the work. That's like two to paragraphs long over the course of entire thesis that's a little overkill but if you're talking about full out chapters and shit like that like the main thesis of your ideas idea plagiarized that's that's not typically. Yeah that's just not academically good integrity and I mean at this point i. I don't think they would get up in arms about two paragraphs for the site. It had to have been pretty. Yeah I also WanNa know who star almost twenty years later for him to lose a whole starlike who who was meddling around like Oh my God. The coup figured this out twenty years later I was one of those fucking nervous at the war college. Those nerds colonel like probably it was somebody at the war. College was probably using his thesis as a way like as a point of research and they're having similar topics discovered discovered in like oh.

"You're stupid stupid because it's all on ESPN and even if you flip those that scenario can still play out so it's harder to get there at your number two because you have to play Clemson. I understand that point went. They're not protecting LSU because you're an ESPN entity might not my opinion of this is Lsu. Is the number one team because their resume plus I test at the end of the season slightly outweigh the resume. And I test of Ohio State. I think Ohio state there I kind of took a hit in the last three or four weeks of the season. LSU's perked up at the end. The resumes were slightly in favor of Lsu ever so slightly. I'll how state had a very good resume a really really strong resume. LSU's was just a just a hair better not much. Is there all the things that we talk about on the last episode. You know we reacted. As soon as we saw get unveiled we set all of the reasons why we thought you and I agree that we think Lsu just ended up Kinda aged Etchingham out a little bit. And it's not a knock against Ohio state. I got to step in right here for as confident and as much swaggers Ohio state fans have about them being the best this team in the country they sure do seem a little worried to be playing Clemson. They sure do seem a little bothered to be having to play the more difficult team in the in and of course I'd play Oklahoma to if I looked at Clemson. Oklahoma GimMe Oklahoma hundred times out of one hundred but stay fans if you are the best team in the country through which you feel like you are. You'll be clemson annual issue. Relax again Ohio state had the feeling most of the year and big resident Ohio State Guy said on the college football show. He didn't believe that anybody could beat Ohio state but themselves now again I am fully transparent here if I got to pick of these teams much rather would play Oklahoma. It's an easier path to get to New Orleans. I understand that but it has nothing to do with Fox versus ESPN if these games on Fox and ESPN than maybe but it just that's just not the case if you want to sec bias. Fine you can ride that. Let's not pretend that they give a fuck. That Ohio State is on Fox. Let's I mean who cares. Are the bowls are happening. Outside of the fiesta in the peach which are the Cultural Wall playoff on December twenty eighth and they excited that the fiestas at night I I I'm Gonna I'm GonNa tell you right now. I have circled bowl games. I'm excited about outside the College Football playoff. How many six Ooh Ooh? That's how many you got seven and then I have one that's a push. I have six so I'm really excited about the two and I was really being charitable because I didn't WanNa hear from the big ten fans. I circled the Rose Bowl. I really don't care. I don't want to give off the appearance that I am in any way. Disrespecting the Roosevelt's great ball but Oregon Wisconsin Wisconsin's lost three times. Oregon is blown every big opportunity. Had I guess I guess it'll be nice because it'd be pretty sunshiny and a great arena. I Yeah I love the Roseville every year. I've been to the Rose Bowl stadium not for the bowl I went for USC. Ucla it's beautiful. I actually am excited about this game. Just because like Wisconsin was so weird all year and then they lose Illinois they get shellacked by Ohio state and then they look like for the first half. I mean we said this last week to for the first half at least for like thirty seconds the halftime. You're like Oh my God. Are they going upset. Ohio state and on the flip side. What Organ to Utah and all the Justin Herbert's these two teams? You really have no idea how they're going to show Woah. So it's like. Are we going to see the organ that completely destroyed the PAC twelve at the end. Are we gonna see the Wisconsin that could have beaten Ohio state. Plus it's the Rose Bowl it's iconic brandon. So I care about. Did you say that was one of the Roosevelt circle the Citrus Alabama Michigan. I don't think Nick Sabin will be varying in this game Frankly watching watching Jim. Harbaugh coach in football is the most boring thing you could possibly do. Nothing turns me off about the citrus bowl of Alabama and Michigan Mac Jones against shape. Patterson thank you next I have this one is something. I'm excited about his walk because I wanNA see who cares less. It's one of those games. It's like bit neither team is gonNA WANNA be there. None of those guys WanNa play half Alabama's probably going to be sitting out a good portion of Michigan to win the game was missing is GonNa care more. That's the thing is like I'm interested in this game one because I do think anytime you see. Nick Sabin pissed off. You're going to see some sort of of emotion whether it's good or bad. I love this because I want to see. It's kind of like last year with Georgia versus Texas now. That was a different game. I understand that but how little Georgia care to be. They're they're both of these teams. Don't care to be there but Michigan is GonNa WanNa be Alabama and then Alabama's GonNa be like. Yeah but like who cares. We don't want an Orlando on January first the citrus bowl. The the Cotton BOWL HAS MEMPHIS PENN state and I did circle it but not for the reasons anybody else will circle it. Why did you circle it or not? I said No. You're not interested interested in that one. Okay here's why I'm interested in it because I go a different way than everybody else. Don't care about Memphis anytime anytime. A non power or five which they always wind about being included They all those got him. There shot give them a shot. UCF couple of years ago and now Memphis this year anytime they get a shot at a big Tehmina even a ballgame. I just root for the team to beat the shit out of them. I disagree place slap in the face and shut them up. I hope state wins by fifty. I normally agree with that because yeah I mean I hate. UCF very well documented. On that. I don't feel like Memphis is coming out and clamoring the way that we've seen in the past I don't either I don't it doesn't have the juice of other other games right. So that's my thing is like yeah normally. I'm like I would have circled this if ucf was in that spot. Or even like Boise State. Now I don't have the hatred for Boise state but I still feel like that has more juice use like to me. It's like okay. Fine Memphis Prince data could be a good game but for some reason Memphis wins. I don't think that it does this. Huge thing for like. Oh my God. We're going to have to hear about Memphis thinking they should. She played the College Football playoff. No yeah I mean just pop. The ironic thing here is though we're talking about Karen Knock here and when I'm at home on these days I'm watching every one that also it's not like I'm going to watch. I'm going all the way the end here in an order. I don't know well I'm GonNa Arkansas State. Fau and the Chameleon. I'm watching that that he his in order of my rankings from one to all the way imprinted you out one. Am I watching the curebowl between liberty and Georgia southern he so December twentieth the first ball right this born Hamas the twentieth the twentieth. Yeah the Bahamas. Charlotte Versus Buffalo in December twentieth and Frisco Texas Utah State versus Kent State. L. My God Jack. You accidentally put Mississippi State really low on that list. Well let's just keep going. which what number you put them in number eighteen seventeen bowls better than I do? The Louisville Mississippi State Super Mega showdown in Nashville Tennessee. I I could have put it a little Jackson so play Louisville no way in the last time we played ball game we beat the fuck out of him and his last game. We intercepted him four times. And that's why I thought he would never succeed in the pros because he was trashed that day we destroyed him. Crashes no chance this guy is going to be good in the pros envy. Pay The league when I'm trying to look this up. What Year was the Music City Bowl When An and played Louisville you don't allow top of your head? I'm sure all cost for all fans out there know. How do you have a job? Yeah I can't believe it. Why don't you dress call for ball for doesn't fifteen I was there? Yeah but that was. I'm Lamar Jackson was the quarterback. Then am didn't win that game by by the way outback bowl. Minnesota versus Auburn wanted a circle. This game I just won't AUBURN TO GET MINNESOTA. That's why I circled that game to you. You made a checkmark but I think I have check in access for the same thing I just I like Minnesota they're good storyline. PJ Flick it's just one of those like the SEC. Just common men have odd my wrists. You have the wrist of of an old woman. What are you talking about a woman wrist? I don't know what you're talking about. Just they're very. There's no definition initially the very skinny wrist. Very skinny wrist doesn't mean they're old people that may sound like I have like wrinkles and saggy skin discount. You got my grandmother's arrest Casey. I don't understand what that means. They're skinny grandmother wrists. I don't want it to be that big of a deal. Let's not make it that. I have extremely skinny rib ever did. Tell me take my wife today but yes I did. I say you entirely my wife to a nice dinner. Nice hotel taken pound town. I'm telling it always a big list and you didn't take one one of my recommendations which is fine sugarbowl Baylor versus Georgia. Wake me up on that circle that one. I circled that one or are checked it. I'm very interested in that you see win. I'd rather see Georgia win. Obviously that was a dumb question by the. SEC teams in bowls are never an SEC team. Minimal unless I hate the team. They're playing worse well and I. I don't like Baylor on the rats. Yeah on the record now like Baylor but I'm also interested to see because Georgia last year. I didn't think Texas had any business Texas last year completely different football team and they were this year. I didn't think they had any chance of beating Georgia last year and Georgia was so mad that they were not in the College Football playoff. Now they don't have as much of a leg to stand on even though they still are that number five spot. I'm so interested because everyone's talking about maybe Baylor should be the number fourteen country if they would have just had one follow their way they have been in Oklahoma spot. And I hope Georgia comes in then and show lacks their asses I hope it happens and not even just because it's SEC. Versus big twelve. It's Georgia is so much better of a football team so so much better. Talent wise. Coaching obviously is up in the air. I just hope it's not even close to more than just I circled Utah. Texas in the Alamo Bowl. I just think it's going to be funny. NEED TO SEE UTAH lose to Texas because Utah just blew their opportunity. They've had to rank teams. They lost both of Utah was just we talked about other teams and I called other teams frauds. This year like Auburn and like Baylor Utah has gotten off the hook for being a total sham. Why have gotten off the hook so much? Why have they gotten off the? Why are we not calling them out as being just phonies? Nobody will watch their games. Nobody wants her games. We all watched your game. When they get their ask? That is true. Nobody cares times. People watched Utah were when they were at USC on Friday night and got beat and when they were playing for the conference championship on a Friday night and got beat..

"Unlike warming up getting a close, look, and I person look at the uniforms like on the left shoulder of navy's uniforms. I could see all the different patches they each wearing. And then a photographer for navy was like, oh, they get to pick those. It's not what unit they're going to. But it just they have a sibling or a dad or mom or somebody who served in that unit where it means something to them because I have a friend in night unit. Like these little details. You could see up close very cool, and then just getting to talk to the people on the sidelines. Like, some of the students are combat camera the cheerleaders, the mascots, and like getting to pull them aside real quick and just for my own like, what's your deal? What's this? What's that? Like just get that was so cool. I should definitely mention because I get this question all the time car or the chew leaders at army navy or. Are they civilians? They just hire for the games. No the chillier were army navy or students at each school, which I think blows people away because they are attractive people and people just assume army navy if people are going into the military, everybody's ugly. But that is certainly not the case. And then keep and Brin to I want to get your thoughts on this to being on the field and seeing the different flyovers Kate, obviously you've seen military aircraft before being in the marines. But what was that feeling for both view like to see the flyovers before the game? For me. I went the flowers were always, I I was like I could stand here all day and just watch flyovers on it. But when they each team dropped the parachuters out from their airport. I'm gonna say it wrong. But my behold wasn't size of a KP? I was like oh my God. They're going to what if something goes wrong the whole time. I was like the side myself until they both that was a weird analogy about my butthole. I'm sorry. One. Anyway, it was gonna take fire we'll usual I'll get to cut you off. From my perspective. I looked at it from the parachuters point of view. How awesome it has to be to be that guy getting to parachute into a stadium as an announcer says your name over the PA Mendy entire stadium going crazy, giving you applause and you land on midfield. I mean goosebumps just thinking about like if that was made they'll be so. Yeah. Yeah. And then you got the invocation which is not something that happens before college pro games. Typically, you have a chaplain out there, saying an invitation to eighty thousand people, and I thought his words were very powerful. And then President Trump, you know, whatever you think about President Trump. I don't think it matters here because he is still coming to this game as the commander in chief and the commander in chief doesn't just show up to every football game on every Saturday. So I think that is definitely one other factor that makes this game. Pretty cool. What did you guys think about President Trump? And the invocation. He finally visited a battlefield. Yeah. It's you know, we all have our own whatever. But I do think the history of it's cool that it's the only game where the entirety of both student bodies attends that the president attends that all these really amazing people like General Mattis was there too. That was explained eight he got a huge route of applause when his name was announced said President Donald Trump, and then when the announcer said General Mattis, he he probably got about like seventy five percent of the applause that Trump did which is like pretty huge. Yeah. It was definitely recognition indefinitely like positive like people that don't. Yeah. Yeah. It's definitely cool to be there for that. To watch it up close. And then obviously the game the game kicks off. And army has a great I drive so much. So that I was getting riled up and getting chirped by the navy prep school football team who is standing on their side because we are staying on the navy sideline. And they had some choice words for me. Which was I thought not very becoming of young officers to be. That's neither here cons behind them. Fuck himself..

I wouldn't want to be with my family and friends, and I wouldn't want to have to take a twelve hour flight to get to the army navy game every year, and I would I would miss West Point too much. I think that's true. Yeah. I will I be for you. It's a no because eventually on the island he'd run out of people to talk about going to West Point about. Yeah. Like everybody would know there'd be no one knew to tell that crazy. Shea about. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I went to it. Either. Know why I mean, do you just I hated wearing period? I mean, it would be nice to like if I had my medals and stuff on it to constantly stunt, but I'm already married. Yeah. So really make a difference. You want to do the? Yeah. As we start to close it out will be finishing up soon. But I'm like a fax lady. And I always liked to read off stuff to them and sound like I know what I'm talking about. But I also like to slip lies in there to see if they really are paying attention. So I'm gonna read off some facts about the army navy game. If you think I'm lying. What's a good? I was gonna say if you're a navy fan bad like a goat. All right army fan crummy mascot, by the way. Go on you have a mule online. Just do me. So this year is army navy game will be the one hundred nineteenth meeting any Eighty-eight time played right here in Philadelphia. Definitely true fair enough. A lot in Philly the very first army navy football game with all let's go back to that. How do you feel about that Catherine that Philly is basically the home of army navy being from the Philly area? Do you do you like growing up? Did you give a crap about the army navy game? You heavily hers. And you homeless this almost you're fired up. We always I remember it always being on TV. I know bunch of our family. I always back. My dad is one of thirteen kids. Why a bunch of my uncle is in the Marine Corps. We have military in our family. So that was always a thing. I'm sure people always went and everything. I remember watching it. When is it veteran stadium? But were they bulldoze, then whatever. But. Yeah. So yes, I think it's a nice way to meet in the middle. It's the best city around. Yeah. Can I take some pride in having this be more or less the home? Yeah. Absolutely. No, okay. The first army navy football game was November twenty ninth. Eighteen ninety at West Point navy one. That's that'd be false out. The next one midshipman Ryan Regan number sixteen holds the record for most points scored via army navy game in nineteen Ninety-three with six touchdowns in one game. Now checks out. I think it checks out. Sure. Maybe sure Rodriguez inches this area. Ryan Regan's Kitson right here. And his favorite number is sixty and Ron. Go go..

"How much was that difficult for you three west pointers stuff stuff? But I'll persevere. Thank you. Yeah. This is science. Let's go to the science. So one of my favorite thing about any sporting event is trash talk. I'm a big cornhole player myself. And that's where I excel is just talking trash on everybody. So I love it. I am not actually going to talk. But I love seeing the signs of the different events and army navy. This'll be my third year going, but I feel like the signs are always so good. No. I wrote up a list of ones that I've seen over the years, and maybe Google it online and chaps. I was wondering if you could read some of the signs that navy people have held and cons. If you could read some of the sign army cadets have held I'd love to army swims in the shallow end, maybe has small decks. How army plays tetris? It was a sign that looked like this. These are the only tetris shapes. I guess lots of ELS. No one played navy as a kid. Down that one's good. That's true. That's true. It hurts so many plays marines. You that's best. I'm sorry to hear that. We're we'll delete that part from there. Armie soft. Okay. All right. I see what you did. You know? Maybe use Internet Explorer those probably some army nerd who came up without. Yeah. Army is scared shitless, that's thunk. Doesn't sting a navy eats pizza with a fork army shoots blanks. Somebody with a vasectomy. I take special exception. I understand well, navy's defense show those more than any of the buttons on any of your shirts. And now that's just that shaming fat. Shame on the show. Army's defense leaves more open spots than the one on Connor's head show. I don't want to do. All right. All right. All right. Let's let's move on. I think I will say one of my favorite aspects about the podcast is because although and CEOs in the Marine Corps can bust officers ball's a little bit. I have so much more leeway now to say, whatever I want to constant I in uniform, and it's beautiful. There's definitely no like pulling rank for me. I can't pull ranking up right because I do want to some. Yeah. Imagine. All right. So one of our favorite things to do on. The pot is do a little bit of hypotheticals. We do have to keep it a little bit cleaner. And I just wanna give myself especial shutout. No F bombs. Yeah. Thank you for not yet. My surprise it. I still can't do that. Yeah. So the hypothetical that we want to do today. Imagine yourself you're in Hawaii. Would you take this? You're in Hawaii you live in a mansion one of the ones that they would show on Netflix now on the destination houses, you have any car that she want to you have you have people who work at your house private chef made you have the whole nine yards. The only caveat is you always always always have to wear whatever branches service that you were in service alpha uniform. So the long sleeve wool constantly, even when you shower you have to wear it. When you get out of the shower you have to be back into a new dry uniform within five minutes every day for the rest of your life. You can live in this place in Hawaii unlimited amount of money. You only have to wear service office at all times..

"I'm still active duty as well. Just like Pete. So I still a lot of guys call me any questions of locations and different questions about the army. So and I was a attack at West Point. So I just left probably two years ago. So I was active with the team then too. So oh and just talk to us a little bit about the feeling what it's like coming out of the tunnel for the army navy game. No one that you're going to be a big part of the game and get a lot of touches and hopefully do well for me. I tried to like blind. All that. I tried to block all that. I'll try to like, okay. Any other game is not camera in your face. The president might be there. The president might be there. People which size, which renaming it spill wrong and stuff like that. So it's just like you're trying to blind. But it's awesome. Because you know, everybody is the only football game college football game in the country on and so it's it's awesome to know that and then one other question, I I guess I should ask pizzas. Super what was it like going into the army then having been army football player? Did you get any recognition having been as successful as you were a West Point? Or did you get to the army and your soldiers had no idea who you were. And even if they did know who you are. They didn't care. They didn't know they had no idea. They had no idea most of them. They know what West Point was. Right. So they didn't know. But like everybody else, they Google you. Right. Right. Then they like, oh you play football. I bet I can beat you in a race. And so they want to race you they want to foot race. And then you beat them destroy the confidence and then fill them back up again. Like a real officer would. Yeah. Yeah. I think that that does set you guys up a little bit different. Because people automatically assume if you play college football that you're like cooler, and I think that's true for me as a staff NCO when I look at second lieutenants, I think you're just a little baby nerd. You're not going to tell me what to do. And then you, but whenever you're a football player. You come in and gives you all right? We'll may this guy is a little feel street Carlton. K they don't like West Point is rightly honest. No, I wouldn't you. Assigned to the main arm. They don't like west pointers right when ours a little bit. There's little bit of a stigma carried with West Point. You know, both good and bad. There's some expectations. But there's been so many West Point officers that have gone, and maybe not done the best of jobs or carried with them. A little too much arrogance for not having the experience that is required of them. So yeah, West Point is kind of has a mixed reputation in the army, but I was going to say to you. What would you how would you react as a staff NCO, if you had a young Lieutenant come in who was such a -ccomplish collegiate athlete? Why did actually when I was when I was a young sergeant not a west pointer. But I had a naval academy grad that he was like the star of the basketball team. And I just immediately put him on the battalion's basketball team. Okay. Started about really good. So let's not. So I in Carl Carlton, I'm sorry. I keep calling you Carl because I want to give you a hard time. Call your Carl. But how how do you feel now about army football in the last few years a little bit of the resurgence than we've been having? I feel like we're in a great place. Like, we've been through hard times beating really hard times, really hard times people cry. Yes. But now, we're in a great place coaching staff. Everybody academies done a great job. So I feel like we're right where we should be ranked. So I feel like he's right. What we should be in Novi proud of what is shirts around going to the gym everywhere else. Where myself proudly now, right, right? All right. Well, I appreciate you. Joining us very much be navy..

"Bring a one of my buddies up L right now. All right. I went up is p p. Pete is a major in. The army Pete is a professor at West Point. And Pete was a starter. In fact, Pete is the record holder for most starts all time in army history. Former captain Pete welcome back it just broken tomorrow. Yes. You walk. It will be broken tomorrow by any Brinson. Yes. Who has three nine six GPA and chemical engineering at West Point. So so now, but now that you're a professor there. Do you take pride in like one of your students is going to break your record? Well, if I taught that kid out probably be like kowtow to because you know, way more than I do. But no, I pretty proud of him for a guy like that to be able to break, the record is pretty awesome. And it's great to be back on zero block. Yeah. Thank you for coming. And what was you know? I talked a little bit about what it was like for me. You certainly played a lot more than I did. With all those starts. I'm not embarrassed to admit it at this point. But what what was it like for you to play in the army navy game? Army navy was always really special because it could really make or break your season. Right. If you were having a poor season, but you could beat navy or vice versa. If you're Evan. Great season. You lost arm. You really make or break your season. So it's kind of like that one chance to really make your Mark. Yeah. And I've always said to. I think what makes army navy special is that even if you did not go to army or navy just about everybody has some sort of connection to the army or the navy, and you can find a side to root for. So certainly makes it special regard. I think what you're saying is true for like the more known Connor. I really believe that you guys could go, oh and ten and you beat navy and it's accessible year. I think when people like Alabama and Auburn say, oh, Alabama says we can go as long as we be. That's not true Nick saves getting fired. If you go into you guys legitimately be stoked just the beat navy. That's true. That's true. I mean, I mean if you can't go and ten too many years in a row still everybody be happy while you go one in ten. There you go one and ten it's got me. Beat navy is plastered everywhere. All over Oliver West Point and beat is vice versa at Annapolis. And so it really is a rivalry to where. Your passion is to really be with you could just have one game a year and then just play the army navy game. Instead of you know, what the other eleven games will pass. Right. But we get a play navy. But that sounds good. And I mean, you you talking about rivalries, and and we're talking about this streak that army broke a few years ago in for so many years we were the underdog in the game. And now, we've kind of flip the script, and we're the wolves going out there, that's relaxed. But how how do you feel about the game game tomorrow? Now that we're favored for the first time since two thousand one and this is killing me because I don't normally let him go this far about West Point stuff. I usually cut him off way before I'm trying to be the bigger person today because we're in town for them..

But while you're at it don't be afraid to go for two Harvey when you hear him in that conversation. I had with him earlier today. Talking about the pressure that every player feels on army navy, and you're talking about dude, three tours and ghanistan right here. I don't care about metals and this and that that's about honor and duty out. He doesn't care about that stuff. But when he. You said about the pressure. And then that last comment about man, comparing being an NFL tunnel or college football tunnel for army navy with going into, you know, the battlefield at night with night vision goggles, knee ended description, right? The senses of feeling the heat of the home v and then going over the mountains. And now now you see your target. That's the only adrenalin rush that beats being in the tunnel for army navy or an NFL tunnel before a game. Dude, is chills man. It's unbelievable. You you get to go this game. I I'm so envious. It's I've never been described man. Yeah. First of all. Yeah. It's it's great to hear him talk about those things and how much that time that he's able to spend at West Point how much it mattered to him. And what an impact it made on on him and the brotherhood that he's a part of. And yeah, we get caught up in the NFL and the pressure that these guys are on especially it'd city like Pittsburgh where they're expected to win every game. And you know. You know? That's that's probably as he said nothing like what he's used to. And and even this weekend. You know, navy has not had a good year. I mean to think that navy is three and nine is unheard of. And to come into play. Army army looking for their third straight win. I mean for these guys this is a big deal. I think before that navy at one fourteen in a row, and Jeff monk and was hired as you know. He's an assistant at navy. They brought him over and said, hey, whatever they're doing with coach Ken over there. Maybe bring that over here to West Point. We really appreciate it. And boy the first time the first game he had a chance it came so close to knocking off navy and now they've won a couple in a row and trying to make it three in a row. So it's it's the weekend that I look forward to every year. It's one of my most favorite games that I love to sit down always tell you. We do game day in the morning, and we take a train from Philadelphia up to time square where it's drops us off right in New York City, and I'm sprinting to get up into my room. And I don't want anybody. Near my room. I don't want him watch the game with anybody. I turn the close the curtains. I turn the lights off air conditioning down to share in the dark a love it. And I tune everything out, and I sit there, and I watch it. They'll every snap. And I love it. I just I look forward to it every single year. I don't care what the records are care that it doesn't impact conference championship or a playoff. I just I'm a throwback myself. I love watching how they play. And if you if you have time on Saturday encourage you to please just watch the game and watch how these guys approached their jobs as far as being a linebacker a corner or running back and watch how hard they play and watch how they're not disrespectful. They're not stand it over top of each other taunting each other..

"But I love you get your version of it where you're standing in the tunnel and bingles fans, this is when Steelers Bengals were both really good. And it's you know, essentially, a playoff berth on the line. You standing in a tunnel fans are giving it to you guys. And he looks up at you. And he says big, Al and. Any better than this? Do you? Remember where you reply to them was what my mix was it was a little bit exaggerated. You know, always I think that for me, you know, it didn't happen in Cincinnati actually happened. I think. Against the patriots. Maybe the first game of the year that I was I was suited up. I play for me. Full snap. Take. That was a backup. Swing tackle. And I was I remember asking myself. Wow. This is it this is FOX borough. I give the season prime time. Everybody's creamy and everybody's yelling. And you know, all these stars Tom Brady, you know, aren't cow ski Bill Bill to you know, people that have that have been watching on TV forever. You know, I unfortunately grew up a patriots fan, and I like to watch the games. And and I remember, you know, after myself, I well, you know, this is something that doesn't compare nearly to the intensity of of being under night vision goggles waiting. I pick you up and go go go after some guys in and and then that's that's still even to this day. You know to me now coming out of the tunnel emotional, some players get really really tough. But maybe it's because the position that I played well, you don't want any highs and lows. He's running. The middle. What maybe because it is true that you know, for anybody who's ever done it get them push oak. When you see if you can green you hear the found you feel the warmth of the engine as you're stepping in allow noise, everybody's hooking up.

"So you can see them both out decide on different ends. And and obviously that's the sort of the game that U classes are expecting you to play a past. You'll still have a lot of veterans that are coming back from deployments. A lot of graduates that are coming back, you know to reunite with their classmates. It's a great opportunity to to catch up. Make it an annual thing things become bigger and bigger maybe now with social media, and and other geo tag locations and technology and whatnot. You know, everybody's sort of making the Dakota the army navy game. So when you're when you're player in you understand sort of the of is that are watching you play. It's a little more personal. You know, it's not you know, fans that you never going to meet in your life. It's it's probably fans are going to be working with at some point in your career. So you so you obviously wanted to your best and you want to give them the the pride. And you want to give them the bragging rights for another year that that that our meal, you know, one of the game getting knocked down on the football field makes you tough. But getting back up makes you tougher at Goodyear, we call that determination a willingness to put in more hours more reps and more heart to reach a bar. That's guy because the Goodyear blimp doesn't show up for just anybody. So don't be just anybody. Blimp worthy. Hear more driven. It's almost a decade later, everything you've been through bronze star. You know? I mean, be meddlesome you name it, you you you did it in serving our country. Is there is it ever? I don't wanna see for lack of a term regret. Visit eat at you that you didn't need weren't able to beat navy. Oh, absolutely. I mean, the awards in the medals and all that stuff. You know? I mean, anything Pro Bowl. This is completely meaningless awards. I think about all levels have always been, you know, very subjective. And I I mean, I don't think anybody. That I've been associated with as ever looked at awards or spit in the NFL now know pro bowls, you know, everything is very very controversial. So I I completely understand that. And it's not something that I that. I that I had when I when things but. Yeah. Of course. I mean, we were we were struggling as a program when I was there. I don't think we want more than three games each year. That's unfortunate. I think when I got out of football. I made a lot of excuses of why that happened, you know, and I don't want to mention that. Because I now playing football again. And I understand that make an excuse. The worst thing you can do in the football world. So it is obviously eating me inside. I'm very proud of the football team that was has been able to beat them in the path and record. What's that like the last two years ago? I had a baby. You know, I I mean it brings everybody together bring the program. You know, sort of a lot of, you know, the energy from the from the grads and the energy from most supporters, obviously the atmosphere. Army navy is going to be insane. And that's always really good for the players to understand that. It'd be supported. I think the spirit videos that the army's making are phenomenal. I was watching the one from last year would general Kathleen who's some of that. I deeply admire the sergeant major command hand, I mean, those are very very funny things that not only affect the game itself. But also, he's still a lot of culture from army and from West Point, and and they will spread it, you know, to every member, and then that's pretty special. Well, you better you better special career on the field off the field, and you still doing remarkable things on the gridiron in. And we'll leave you with this. This one story my friend, Mike Mitchell you played with for years in Pittsburgh now with the Indianapolis Colts.

"You're talking about our favorite game of the year. Army navy is a man who was a captain at army served three tours in Afghanistan earned the bronze star medal of valor. We take too long to go over all all the things that he did for our country as an army ranger in Alejandro Villanueva of Pro Bowl less. Tackle the Pittsburgh. Steelers joins us now here on herbstreet and Fitzsimmons and one hundred this we're not talking Steeler ball, man. We're talking army navy, and that's it about what you learned. What you got what it means to us? So let's start right there. When you hear the words army navy, what immediately comes to mind immediately. I feel the pressure that the school is is put in on on the players to win that game because the rivalry is Israel. I mean, I think the two degree. I'm not going to speak for for the entire rest of the program. I'm not gonna speak for the rest of the the graduates, you know, but. If army's not a lot of play, you know with his new college playoff and. With limited. You know, a attention of again because of the the system of the plan for a lot of players for a lot of graduates. The army navy game is more important than the rest of the season. I mean is is that important so. Pressure is essentially what I feel. That's considering everything that you did for our country. Just I surprise me. That's the first thing that comes to mind because you you felt real life pressure like bullets pressure. How much does army navy prepare you for any type of adversity? Just just going to a military academy going, you know being there. How much does that prepare you for any adversity that you'll face in any weather walk of life? Well, I mean, you gotta understand it. The navy players also phase him bullets as well. It's been you know, obviously, you have a lot of respect for the Marine Corps. Does a a wave of navy polo players that are now joining the marines and nothing that's extremely inspired. And I'm very very honored to play the game against. Marine officers, and obviously, fire pilots, and and officers that have that fought alongside of me, and you know. Great things for our country. And so that's why you know, all the pain goes away. You know, I it's it's, you know, both men on the field are going to face the same degree the same type of challenges. And so now all because about football. You know is not so much about what's coming out thirds. Just the game the game that you play in right now. And it's a lot of pressure. But I mean, I think football in general, it's a really good thing for. For for for young leaders growing up. Now the accepting criticism. Dealing with the pressure of the intensity all eyes on you type thing, and, you know, learning from mistakes learning from, you know, maybe not getting what you want and put it in a plan, you know, to to get where you want to go. So football's a beautiful thing. There's a lot of parallels that get drawn between clean football war being an officer leader and and whatnot. And I think that there's a lot of truth behind some of those some of those payments. He's decorated with the bronze star a served three different tours afghanistani's a Pro Bowl left tackle for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he played and let me get straight defensive line own line tight end, and you were wide receiver at two hundred ninety pounds and to get all the positions. You do. You. Didn't you didn't lineup under center, right? No, I didn't. I never I never played tight end. When I was at army. I just play wide receiver and tight end was more an experiment or more than that wants to try to. What what is it when you're in the tunnel and its army navy like we have this Saturday. Just describe the adrenaline the feeling when you're about to take the field. Well, I mean, first of all your classes, they're going to be watching, you know, your world when you're cadet does not revolve around a huge campus. A lot of fans it doesn't revolve around. People on ESPN that maybe, you know, talking about you because you know, obviously, it's a little more limited coverage, and you don't get to watch ESPN. Or any other channels on your West Point? So everything revolves around your classmates, and obviously the entire. All the midshipmen from the naval academy..

"So when you melt Tucker, which Georgia losing in your opinion, what's Colorado gaining it and their new head coach. Well, you're losing you know, not only a defensive coordinator. But a guy that that really does a good job of of being able to communicate and relate to to players, you know, players whether going all the way back to like, you said Ohio State when he was just a secondary coach and helping Mark dantonio and trying to help live state of eventually go on and win championships to, you know, the the run that he made in the NFL and the coming back to college and. Helping out at Alabama's zip code defensive coordinator with Kirby and then leaving with Kirby once he got the head job in Athens to go to Georgia and become in the his his his defense coordinator. I think anybody who really follows the coaching ranks knew that Mel Tucker would eventually get his opportunity. And here we go and Colorado at boulder, I loved what he said, there's no reason for for Colorado, not to be competitive team in a championship caliber team that had to be music through the years of CU fans. It's been a long time. I know that couple years ago they were in the conference championship game got undressed by Washington. I think that this program that when I was in high school and college the boy, they could play with anybody in the nation, and they also had a pipeline in Texas and into southern California. And that's what he got to be able to do is. He's got to be able to raise the bar in recruiting. He's an outstanding recruiter. Can't wait to find out who he puts on his staff to help him. But man, he's gotta get into into the L A. A area. And he's got to do the best that he can get into Texas. And and I think you know, you got to the other thing is you gotta make that Colorado brand cool. You got to spend a long time since it's been a cool brand for the eighteen year old kid and Mel will work hard to be able to to try to do that. And I always look at Colorado is potentially a sleeping giant because I think when they win I mean, and you get a kid to come on that campus, and you look around at the foothills of the Rockies, and you look up from that stadium. I mean, it's it's pretty magnificent. And if you can get them there to come check it out, and then they when they're winning. They've got a great home field advantage. So I wish him all the best. And I personally would love to see see you get back to to winning and and and competing to get into that Pac twelve championship every year and cook, I couldn't agree more. I think it's been a long time coming he he's picked his spots head opportunities. Elsewhere. This is the one who decided to finally take Colorado on the a home run hire in milk with. USC by the way, we cliff Kingsbury as offensive coordinator coming up next. Let's get an army navy because man, you're about to hear stories of the pressure on a player when it comes to army navy from a a man who served three tours and ghanistan more accolades, and you can imagine it. He didn't care about metals. It's about honor and duty to country a Honda Villanueva left tackle Pro Bowl, left tackle Pittsburgh Steelers coming up in just a moment..

"As far as college coaching carousel goes a good friend of ours. In a guy, we both know very well and Mike Loxley leaves as Alabama's offensive coordinator. He will coach through the college football playoff. He goes to Maryland Kirk. I think this is a home run hire for the Maryland Terrapins because locks I went to high school up there at Georgetown prep. Well, they don't friend of ours Kevin plank, and then he went plank went on to Saint John's, and you talked to any high school coach in the in the DMV area that tristate area they love Mike logs. As a matter of fact, Dwayne Haskins was committed to Maryland because of locks and when locks went Alabama and left Maryland. Then next thing, you know, you know, has is at Ohio State. I think this is a perfect fit to try to heal Maryland and bring a winning culture. In with Mike Loxley. So when you look at what Alabama again, how hard is it for him to do both jobs, and what do you make of locks to Maryland. I'm fired up another one. I can't wait to see. You're right. We've gotten very close with locks over the years and. If there was one job, I I'm sure he'd be willing to to leave the perch being the OC with Tua and with Alabama avenue, whatever fifty points a game. And they got basically the entire offense coming back next year where they're going to be a year older year wiser year faster lookout next year. The goal is sixty a game. All right here. We go. But without locks there. You know, I think locks it took him having an opportunity to go back home. And you just talked about a couple of high schools in that area. That's a great area for high school football when he was an assistant coach in Illinois. And at Maryland, he he crushed it. He has as many good contacts as anybody. And I think it probably took that. And I think everything that that program has had to endure I think that maybe even add it to the fact that after toward McNair tragically lost his life during a workout in the summer, and they suspended DJ Durkin Matt Canada admirably stepped up and did the best job that he could. I think part of there's gotta be something inside locks. It's looking at that and seeing what's going on. And man, I got I love to come home. And and try to help them turn this thing around so big higher by Maryland wish locks nothing, but the best as far as preparation for the Oklahoma game and the Orange Bowl in potentially national. Championship. I think we've had I don't know how many assistant coaches coordinators at Alabama that have done this where they've had to try to put two hats on these thirty days where one hand they're trying to get Alabama offense ready and and try to win that game. And on the other hand trying to put a staff together and trying to recruit for Maryland Kirby. Smart probably did as well as anybody lane kiffin, not so much. We're when they actually tried to say, hey, you know, what we're good. Voca heavily, and he Sark, I know Yemen, call to play all year come on over here, pal. You're going to call the the national championship against the Shawn Watson. And actually did a pretty good job. You know position to win the game with two thirty go. Yeah. He did. So I I think Nick saving knows how to manage that. I'm sure he'll share a lot of his thoughts with Mike Loxley on on how he should try to break up his day to try to be able to do what he needs to do to get Alabama ready to go and locks is such a team guy. I mean, of course, he's excited about Maryland. But I also think he's dedicated to the cause of trying to help. Bama win another national title. Again, cannot be happier for him his family and everything even doored at Maryland. He is the perfect fit in my opinion, your opinion, right to go in and and try and take Maryland to a whole 'nother level now another guy, we know. Well, Mel Tucker defense. Coordinator Georgia now goes to Colorado. Herb is a longtime coming for for talk. We know him very well going back to his days at Ohio State is a great NFL resume what he's done at Georgia's been spectacular Colorado, you'd done good because you're getting a leader of men guys grabbed Tate to they take on the personality of talk..

"Herbstreet in Fitzsimmons, the podcast Herbie tunnel news this week in a great world of college football with curb street. I'm ianfitzsimmonsespn and herbals begin with the news of the week where urban Meyer's retiring Ryan day is a new interim head coach your thoughts on urban. And then the future of Ohio State football Kirk where you played blood on that field. Yeah. There's been a lot of talk this week about people's impression of the fact that he stepped down and how he stepped down. And what does it mean? And a lot of people are beginning to speculate already that you know, he'll be back in two years coaching somewhere. My my initial thought was I I kind of you, and I've talked a lot in the last four or five weeks on and off the air about some of his antics on the sideline and just some of his mannerisms and just how. Different looked compared to the normal urban Meyer intensity and urban and I've spoken quite a bit in the last four or five weeks as well about just what he's been going through with the cysts in his brain. And how it's impacted him and how he's tried to pull back, and so all the tea leaves were pointing to this happening. And then they go out and blow Michigan out and a huge game and followed up week later with a winning northwestern, and he kind of had his Mojo back on the sideline looking like he normally looks. And I thought this is interesting. I wonder if this might change, thanks and sure enough obviously soon as the big ten championship is over. He had to wait 'til, gene. Smith came back from Dallas where he was busy with the playoff committee and came back Monday and urban urban probably come to grips with this five weeks ago. And maybe that was part of his sideline. Theatrics. So I I don't know I feel like. Not shocked. We lose, you know, great coach in college. Football's one a lot of games and a lot of championships, and you know, for a high state, you know, what what he was doing. Whether he was in the playoff for winning a national championship or winning a big ten championship or beating Michigan. You know, every time you went up against him. It's a it's a significant loss for Ohio State and at the same time. It's kind of weird emotion. You bring in Ryan day who is such a bright future. Whether was going to be at Ohio State or anywhere else. We get a taste of what he can do as a leader in those first three games. When over my urban Meyer was suspended and now he gets a chance to become the face of of Ohio State football. And that is that is a big job. And and one that I think he's excited to take on. And I can't wait to see how he does, and you know, on a personal level. I know both these guys I wish urban Meyer all the best in in his retirement because he's leaving Ohio State. I could. Could tell you that. I don't see him coaching. Again. You know, I think people on the outside world think Notre Dame was always his destination is dream job. And it's always been Ohio State. And now that he's kind of climbed that mountain. I think I see him becoming kind of like the next Archie Griffin in the department, meaning kind of the face of the athlete department. Hey, we're having a golf outing in Palm Springs, you know, urban Meyer goes out and beats with a bunch of boosters. Hey, were we gotta deal in Boca? Can you go down there? Yep. Heading down to Boca plan, little golf. You'll have you'll have that kind of role would be my guess, and I don't I don't we have that gig. And you're watching your son Nate play baseball at university of Cincinnati and hanging out with your daughters, and your wife, and your grandson and other grandchildren that are becoming along. I think that's his next chapter. And on the side, he'll be working in the department. So I wish him all the best on on that that's one hand on the other hand, I'm fired up to watch Ryan day become the head coach and kind of put his own spin on this football program. And I'm I'm excited to see what the future has having lunch with Bob stoops today, and we were talking about how he stepped down and felt good about Lincoln Riley being in the wings..
