"How many coaches are no longer taking live calls on the radio. And I talked to some people around the country, including us who runs the or does the show at Ohio State and has done it for decades. And they have also gone away from that. And he said, there's some good reasons for that. As you'd expect that a lot of it is coaches just kind of want control. And they don't want negative calls, but they also want more control. And not to cast dispersions on what you and your show does, Paul. But in terms of creating character calls, that was something that was mentioned by a few people to me is they want their radio show to be informative. They don't want it to be people calling in creating these characters. And so that's why that's kind of gone away. But there's a lot of still romance in it, the idea that coaches very just kind of democratically take phone calls, live people, live fans. And it still happens at some places. Alabama is one of them. And I asked Nick Saban about it and he talked about, yes, sometimes we do get a negative call, but sometimes we deserve a negative call. And then there are many stories through the years and obviously I couldn't get them all in about just kind of some entertaining back and forth instances with coaches and callers. And it's a fascinating thing that I'd always thought about that these coaches just put themselves out there and take questions from regular fans. Seth, nowadays, these guys all make so much money, but there was a time was there not, and you alluded to this that this was a big part of their income, whatever they did outside of coaching. Yeah, and once the salaries went up, it more became like it's broken down in terms of there's a base salary. There's a media agreement. But that's kind of just done for accounting purposes. But in the old days, it was like it was a lucrative part. It was like, you know, this is part of the reason they put up with it. Is that they were paid extra for these things. And that's one of the reasons that they've got a lot more leverage now coaches do. So they say, well, I'm not going to do this, I'm not going to take the calls or I'm not going to do the show this way. But they still do them. And they still are quietly very well rated from what I can tell shows. People listen to them. I actually am ashamed to admit I don't know if Scott frost, what he does, but I got to imagine his show this week was pretty interesting. And it's always just kind of been fun, although I do lead with the anecdote of when Barry Alvarez was starting at Wisconsin in 1990 his assistant coaches as one of them told me had to call in himself and pretend to be a caller in order to fill up your time because the interest wasn't there. But for instance, at Nebraska this week, probably plenty of interest, plenty of phone calls, just not that type that. Scott frost would like to be taking. I hope those call Carl's Colin shows that take live calls screen them better than we do here because we let anyone on. As I am on with you right now as an example. Yeah, exactly. And by the way, what we do screen the college, you know, that Seth. But we don't want we don't really want to know too much. To me, the idea of a great call in show is the extemporaneous, the unpredictability, obviously Kirby smart would not be a good radio producer, but he's a very good football coach. Hey, thanks for coming on. We will see you soon. Always a pleasure. Thanks, Paul. Good stuff from Seth Emerson, joining us here. We have a lot of guests that will be joining us throughout the next three hours and 45 minutes. First a break. Every college football season, Goodyear knows the importance of winning on the road. The road will always demand confidence. The confidence to handle whatever the journey brings and to perform under tough conditions

"We're back here at the stadium hours before the kick-off and probably nobody outside the teams are counting down that more than our next guest Holly Rowe, who will be on the sideline tonight with the crimson tide and Holly you've been doing this at this level for some time in big games like this. But I'm curious. We'll talk about the games and the meta, but it's three, 33. The game doesn't start for 5 hours, and you're here schmoozing away. Shouldn't you be like in a room sitting on a couch listening to music or something? I mean, I don't know. I was thinking about the kids today. The players who were going to play in this game and they are young people, you know, 18 to 22 year olds, I'm super nervous today. I have so many butterflies. I've got nervous energy. I'm just going crazy inside and I thought, we're not going to play a single play in this game. I can't imagine how these athletes and players feel because it's exciting. Those of us who love college football, it's just really exciting. It's one thing to see it on television. Because we're reacting to our friends or our family. You're watching their reaction. What is that like, especially at this level? This is the highest level you can get. Yeah, I think this is one of the most special moments because you get to see these really private intimate moments. I have a vivid memory of Ron dayne running for a rose bowl record and Barry Alvarez going over to congratulate him and throwing up in his face. There's all these funny moments that happen on sidelines that you never see or never know about. I remember exactly the expression on Matthew Stafford's face when he was a freshman and they told him he was going to go into the Georgia unplanned and he couldn't find his helmet. You know, there's all these intimate private moments that we are the only witness to and it's really special. The narrative is set in stone. We've been talking about it really for 5 weeks. I know there were two games a week ago, but a lot of fans wanted to look past it. As you've been on the sideline for both these teams, countless times this year. When you when you're around Alabama, what do you pick up? What do you learn? Well, I have been studying Alabama like a science project ever since Nick Saban got there because I think he is the greatest living coach that we've ever seen. And I want to know how he does it and how does he maintain it? And so I study him and what I have learned is there is no one who is more consistent. And I mean the walkthroughs at the same time, the schedule is exactly the same. The meals. Now that doesn't mean he won't adapt and evolve as science gets different football gets different. I think what people don't understand is he's been one of the great adapters of all time, but he does it with a consistent approach and it's fascinating. You've seen Georgia started the season with Georgie. You saw them again last week. You've seen them other times, what did you notice last week, roaming their sidelines that struck out? I think they're back. You know, I think watching the film, I've now watched it three times the SEC championship game. And that is arguably the worst Georgia played all season. And I think last week against Michigan, that was the Georgia team that I saw all year long. And I think they played with a confidence and a dominance. You know, they are a big physical team and I think on paper, I think you could make a great argument that Georgia top to bottom is the better team, whether they win or lose today. They are loaded Paul and I thought last week they got back to doing that against Michigan and were the more physical team. And if they can be the more physical team than Alabama today, they'll be national champs, but they didn't do it in the SEC championship game. You mentioned Nick Saban and you've covered the great genome in past summit and basketball who both sides will argue is the greatest coach of all time. I'm only about what 19 championships between the two of them. You've seen so many others, and we had a conversation, I don't know, two months ago. And you really struggling, you were to touch the loose and talking about Nick Saban. I want to go back to that. And piggyback to what you've learned this week. Being around him learning from him and with somebody of your skill set, just observing greatness as an understatement. But what do you see when you're around him? What's the most boring answer in the world, but it's consistency. This is a man who eats the same thing every day. And yes, I have double checked. There is a special person that brought the little Debbie's snacks for breakfast. They are here in Indianapolis, so never fear. But have you ever had one? I have not. Do you love them? Not to get in the middle of this conversation, but when I was in Birmingham, we did a local TV show like breakfast at the sabins. And you don't love it? I don't need sweets like that. But I decided to try it. And we were talking to miss Terry. And I grabbed into his personal jar. In 8 one, and I must tell you, I thought I was going to die. Oh, stop. I kid you not. It was like just freshing blood sugar. Just raw sugar into my veins. And I don't do well with sugar. Yeah, okay. I don't know how he does it. He does it every single day. They packed them to come here. But I mean, it is hard to be consistent. Think about in your own life. You know, think about how you get up every day. Do you make your bed? Like all these little habits that bring about a consistent lifestyle and it's hard to do. And I think I told you this story Todd blackleg gave me a great gift a couple of christmases ago and it was a binder that came from Bear Bryant. It's like a private binder of all of his notes. And there's only a couple of these around. And I have one of them. And I went through all of these pages of Bear Bryant's private notebook, and you would think you're reading and Nick Saban manual. I think that the similarities between two of these greatest coaches we've ever seen in college football and at Alabama, I think would be shocked at how similar they really are. The ability to do the same thing. And in these little handwritten Scrabble handwriting of Bear Bryant, talking about making sure to make players feel good about themselves so they will continue to improve and be engaged. Nick Saban does that. How are you? I should gather stories for this week. I want to get to one in particular, but I'm curious, the game ends and you're not like that's the only game you do. You're doing a lot of different things. But when you start preparing for this game, the biggest game in college football what is that process like? Well, I set out a two deep chart because I think one of my biggest jobs is to be the eyes and ears of the TV truck. And I'm really proud that some of my best work never shows up on TV. It's me telling the director, hey, this guy's heard or hey, they're talking to this kid. So that's a real art and skill to sideline reporting. I don't think people realize. But I've really dug into the two greatest players on Alabama that if they win this game, it will be because of these two kids. And it's bright young. And I think some of the storytelling I've looked at around Bryce young is I'm just fascinated by his mental makeup. He is one of the more mental conditioned young athletes I've ever talked to. And that comes from his dad Craig, who is a mental health expert, Melton therapist. And so this kid has learned positive self talk from a very young age. And in this era, where athletes are struggling with mental health, I find that to be a really interesting side note inside story. And then will Anderson will Anderson junior can wreck this game, can ruin this game can be the biggest piece of this win for Alabama if.

"But it does mean that based on what it is now, there needs to be some fixes. And when I say shove all the oxygen, I mean, all the important all the meaning, the definition of success only is determined by those four spots. And past years like I've talked with Barry Alvarez about this. And I've talked about Barry, I don't know if what you did at Wisconsin is available to anybody now. Which means he went to a program that was not very good at Wisconsin, and he built them into a power using incremental definitions of success, getting to 500 met something getting to a bowl game meant something getting to a New Year's Day bowl game, meant something getting to a rose bowl meant something. And it meant something that could define you as successful in the Pantheon of the sport, not just for you and your own fanbase, but it was like, this meant something to everybody in the sport. And now that's not necessarily afforded for everybody because if you're not in the playoff, it's not deemed a success. Ask Ohio State fans right now. They would not deem their season a success. And so because of that, we have this separation of the classes where only the top 6 5 6 teams in the country are getting all the best recruits and they're going to continue to separate themselves out. And then everybody else is going to be suffering. And I think that allowing some opportunity for a definition of success for more teams, whether they're going to win a national championship or not. You need to have that definition of success at least afforded to them through an expanded playoff. They also need revenue badly. After COVID, revenue is going to be a big part of this thing and I know no one wants to talk about revenue, but they need to expand revenue.

"So we ran the ball for three hundred fifty two yards and held the ball for over thirty nine minutes. So yeah this was even the walk on. The richards are going to be getting a piece of ass tonight after playing eastern michigan because that was the of what the game was a subscribed for the game that was at the medicine for glorified scrimmage so moving into a much tougher. Game against notre dame game manager quarterback. Graham urged is. He's out to do something grand. Merchants going to have to leave to touchdown pass. Because so far this season he hasn't hit the toll the touchdown and the only were speaking about Yards of twenty or more generated by the offense three times three times two games. Those games being eastern michigan. So this is going to be something where Wisconsin is going to have to generate. Something's going to generate some type office. They're not going to be winning thirteen ten game. They're not going to be winning a fourteen to ten game. Hell they're not gonna even me winning fifteen a ten game. These guys are going to have to put some points on the board. These guys are gonna have to take advantage of any situation where they're in the red zone and they have a good opportunity and doing all this. They're gonna also have to control the ball. Get rolling in going again. It starts with that offense in front of those big cheeseheads. That these guys wisconsin. The program seems to recruit year after year after year. The same thing that used to be with the brassica get them kid from the cornfields to come in. They bulk them up. And then three or four years within the program. You're sitting there looking at a guy who six-foot-four weighing three hundred ten pounds and can move and he's a greater and other types of things nebraska. Did that with tom.

"Because now i don't know that means they might have gone up from twenty percent to twenty five so the is are still that he's gone but if you're matt you like you're making huge money. Your family loves it here. You got an easier path to play off their win that big twelve than you do. Go into penn state or michigan. Now so i think that's those are the kinds of things he thinks about and that that's the point when it comes to what he should do like. No one ever considers steve. You're absolutely right about that. Like maybe he's just a guy who likes living in the mid west with his family in isn't just constantly great example. Bill snyder dislike barry alvarez. Your coach great example like love madison wisconsin. Just family loved. It loved the school and didn't go anywhere. If the big twelve remains or becomes an auto bid or retains its power five status. It will oklahoma fan and i think it will as well oklahoma fans and texas fans. Sorry my heart goes out to my heart. Goes out to you. i hope. I hope i hope you're watching iowa state or your oklahoma state in the playoff seven and five six and six taxes. That's not really enjoyed the three months of pub. You gotta this yeah. Andrew hawkins says the two thousand twenty one iowa hawkeyes legitimate contender for the college football playoff. Dear god aaron your fan base. And here's what just like. They can't help themselves in. Here's where most mo- i agree. They're not they're not a contender. But it's like you throw this out. There isn't as it stands right now. I would sell next up. We go to kevin runnig since this one is great since mail in voting is so safe and secure are the government should invest in mail in vaccines where they can send everyone vaccine or two or three we all give ourselves the shot and send back some paperwork saying we did so. That's one of the best was we've had this year. Freaking brilliant kevin. Brilliant by that that he that was a master class. In your becca steve and using it against him yes next up this one is a double pronged one from two different users Tea party trucking says the anti christ is alive so we'll take that one separately from the second one. The second one is from peggy. Satan has an anti christ in the wings every generation because like the rest us. He doesn't know the time. Let me take the ladder. That's the most interesting one that's fastened. That is interesting. My wife actually read a book years ago. That had that this was its plotline that in every generation the enemy rises up somebody that could potentially be in that position not knowing the day or the hour of when the moment will occur so that he is prepped and prepared and and if you go you know i've talked before we one of the movies or the shows we did. The specialty shows was a list of my all time favorite movies and my all time. Favorite horror movie is the omen. And the i oh man. I think is is the best horror movie of all time in the second one is really good too. They actually did. Do a third one with damian grownup and it was one of sam. Neill the actor. Sam kneels very first. Starting starring roles was as the grownup damian. The movie's really bad but one of the interesting premises in the film is that there is a group of essentially crusading priests in order of the catholic priesthood. That every generation stays on watch knowing that the enemy has believing. The enemy has groomed someone to an anti christ in every era. And what this order of priests do is they kinda wait to see who that is and try to take them out. And they and that's how the film begins. They try to take damian out because they see that he's the one for the for the that he's the sign of the times basically. So i like that premise. It's not biblically affirmed does. I don't think it's necessarily heterodox ical either. It's just not. I think it. I think it's possible. I'll say that. And i think it's interesting so all by but it's it's no form of confirmed orthodoxy on the first one. I can't believe gonna say this. I would not even entertain this question a couple of years ago. Okay bye yeah. I'll let you buy for the show since your names on it in that because that's a heavy lift their brother the last one though i i've always been fascinated by the potential. Choose your own adventure part of the bible. Where in. And i've mentioned this on the show. It's been a while and i can't remember the context. But about abraham father tara leaving and Adrian believed it was a tribute to him as righteousness. But what did that. Possibility was that availed to other people's perhaps even in other parts of the world and he's the guy and therefore there goes history. What could it have been another way. Based on generation to generation had it been head the offer been there before and the people said that the heck with that noise. So i i really think you know with your analysis is like the way you put it. It's it's not anti-biblical and you need to be careful with it but there's there's a level of discernment there that i think is appropriate. Well said that was fascinating next up. Thank you wanna thank you for that. Todd because every every pressurised calvin est in this audience is sodomizing my in box. Sorry thank you better than mine. Thank you for that. I think mike d'amico says a two loss team will make the college football playoff. We're talking about this season guessing. You're back again. It has almost happened. Auburn almost did it. In two thousand seventeen. They had won the sec championship with two losses. They would have made it so when you look at some of the teams that have lost already this year. I see it. Sure i'll i'll buy. Let's see we'll go to this one. Next crow of approval says the wasp showing up this week. Again is god's punishment on steve for.

"To have an opportunity to play there. And then to be under aid in coach try and coach brazier, Dan mccarty , Barry Alvarez, Kirk, France, Bill Snyder on and on and on. Just shaped me. You know, I had a great background with my father and high school who had great coaches, but, you know, you really are molded there in college and I was around the best of the best. I mean, you look at these guys and to this day, they're all great, great friends and stay in touch with all of them. And not only are all those guys in the Hall of Fame, they're all the winningest coach at all their different universities that they went to. How about that? Yeah. Yeah, crazy. Yeah. And I get to join them here this year. So incredible staff Tom and what I like about bob and his career is really to me his Hall of Fame career goes all the way back to his time as an assistant because bob is at the hardware. A lot of coaches don't do it the hard way today. The hard way. He brings in a Kent State, you know, that was his first job, you know, broke into college ranks. He went to maybe the worst program in the history of college football in Kansas state. And those guys turn it around. Maybe one of the greatest turnarounds in college football history because it is. I mean, I don't think candidate won a game for two or three years in a row before they took over. Then he goes to Florida, of course, fuller was rolling a little bit, but under spur. But bob gets through the elevator elevates to the national championship. Then he takes over in Oklahoma program and I don't know, I'm sure people realize this, but if you do the history of that, there was like ten years in a row at Oklahoma that wasn't very good. And I remember I remember the rest of the Oklahoma like 72 to nothing and Norman like in 1997 or 8 and my parents are Oklahoma sooners and bob knows that I was born in Norman. My dad was beside himself. He's like, oh my God, this is the most embarrassing thing I've ever had in my life. He loved Oklahoma football. So about to go over a horrible program and look one of the national title in the second year. So he's the hard way, right? Well, yeah, no doubt, chuck, on top of that, I was 5 years as a student graduate assistant and then volunteer assistant. My parents were wondering if I was ever going to get a real job. I was 28 years old before I got my first full-time job, so I hung in there and kept scraping away at it. Bob, do you ever get the itch to get back? You're kind of done..

"Come back to Steven Carroll on WTMJ. Well, we're having all that fun with the Brewers. Big weight on Sunday were totally ignoring the Labor Day lost yesterday. 12 zip to the Philadelphia Phillies, who, but I think I've had the Brewers number this year. I don't believe the Brewers have beaten him once. Uh, I'll leave that up to you. I'm not quite sure. And for all the Brewers experts out there the specialness of that was there was two things one. It was the ultimate grandson. They were down by three in the end up winning the game, but it was a pinch hit Grand Slam. That was the first time that it happened. I just think it's I I don't know what it is about this team, but I've always the only thing that concerns me is that it's always been said that whoever is hot at the end are the ones that going to take it, even though they might have had And these guys seem to have kept apace. That's In human. You know what I mean? Well, they're getting a record territory as far as their their games over 500. I mean there. I think the record for the bruises 31 there at 29 or 30, but I mean, they seem to travel across the nation and it doesn't seem you would think I'm exhausted just looking at him, and it's just it just doesn't seem to get them down. I don't know if it's their youth, further athleticism or what it is or You know, is counsel in the biggest cheerleader there is, I don't know These are great manager and he deserves manager of the year and if they don't give it to him, it's a travesty. I'll be clear on that because this is a team that's had The worst injuries right throughout the season. There's a player after player you bet there's another point and guys coming back from the minor leagues, guys coming back from rehab guys coming back from the injured list, and I'll showing up like vocal back did on Sunday. All right, the opposite the opposite of the coin. Other side of the corn. Really? We gotta do this constant. I'm just I want to call it the coach little bit. And I know that people are very protective of their badgers. I didn't go to Wisconsin University. I did. All right, and I understand that every year there there in its right there. Competitive is the way I look at it. They have a pretty good win loss record, but they don't win the big Games. They're not getting to the Final Four. They're not playing for national championship. And to me, That's a deal breaker. I'm not. I kind of casually watch them. I saw a little bit of the game and listen to a little bit of it. And then I heard this from the coach. This is a team that was highly ranked Wisconsin Baton, as was Penn State's, by the way, tough game Great defense of Penn State. They've had the Badgers number on defense for the last couple times we played them. This is a home game to start the season at Camp Randall. Jump around was insane. Sure, all of that energy and this is what frustrates me about this team. All that energy and then you get this from the coach. Yeah. I mean, that That part was awesome. I feel you know, I feel bad that we didn't Do more for them, but it certainly it was It was special, and I think we all went through it. And and I said, I just wish we could, uh, give them more. Yeah, Me too. I mean, thanks for crediting the fans because they showed up. Yeah, this team continually disappoints. It's not enough to have winning records. And I've had this argument. Sports guys as long as I've been here and probably Social media longer than that. My expectations are that you win the big 10 and you get to a big bowl game. And then you win that ballgame. Okay like you did with what's his name of the athletic director? They did go The Rose Bowl of what? Alvarez Alvarez. Yes, they won the game. There was in front of them right? They won those Rose Bowl Rose bowl. But this current Climate of run the ball. Poor quarterback play pretty good defense but losing big games. I'm sorry As a fan, I expect more. I expect more. Well, do you know I'm not going to say no. I'm not going to say no to that. Um, but I went to school there went during the Justin years, which it was just like, you know, the body passing was more interesting than what was happening. They have had a long and that's what I always get from people. Well, you want to go back to the Dave McClain era and all that stuff where they they basically sucked all the time. No, but I want you to try to win a the get. Let's get to the final four. Are you telling me that? You think that he's that Chris should go that are? Yeah. You think that? No. Just get some excitement in your voice. I know he's kind of a Boring guy. Well, he's not exactly I love that Mr excitement. He's not electric. Um, but, you know, But Barry Alvarez was always like he was chewing nails, You know, I mean, he was always that Barry Alvarez gets it. Well, of course he does. Look what he did. He understands he understands he understands the importance of winning the big game. Not all the little games, the big games and we're getting too much of this. I like to call it happy to be here. Fans jump around was awesome. Therefore, the day was cool, right? I expect him to win their home games. See that was like for me because I went to the Yeah, I know. We got a break. I was a badger. And then I went to Whitewater and then Whitewater look well, Whitewater dead National champ. Absolutely. They were and they were doing it in every sport, So they kind of like filled my little sports whole. Look, Paul, Chris is not a bad guy. No, just show some enthusiasm. Get this team ready to play on opening day. You want them to try? Who? Paul Chris. Well, they were not going. I'm not going to make them cry, but it's like, Come on, dude. Fire it up a little bit.

So if you have he and wanda robinson you'd have to to playmakers than than. I think it might be a different equation. What what. I i thought about you know. Some is the first year when they had when they showed definite. Some flashes and martinez looked really good Martinez had stanley morgan. Who is one of the better receivers in the big ten if not you know in the country and he'd been really good and they had jd. Spillman who would who was a really good player. They had to legit like scott. Frost can talk about his receiving core being deeper and better than it's been I don't think it's it's wasn't better than what it was. When i got there and i think for a variety of reasons it does not work now. The question though is what you're saying. Now is florida have much more upside job than nebraska. You'd absolutely think so. I mean look where it's been. Look what the recruiting base is. The question though is and i remember having this conversation with scott frost in his office back. I'm trying to think of. It's two thousand seventeen or two thousand eighteen. Guess it's two thousand eighteen He's basically looking looked at wisconsin and said look they're not getting quote unquote top five recruiting classes. They are you. You basically have to do what they do. Because it's not like they have this very fertile recruiting area the rent and have a distinct blueprint for what they're doing. They have an identity. This is the formula he talked ad nauseam about how nebraska had gotten away from its formula before and he was bringing it back and that's how it had lost its way and it has not worked. I mean it just. It is not working now. Look i'm not saying it's not like he got fired so you know right now. I think it's hard to look at it. After the way they started the season. And go okay. I think this is gonna turn. I just you know again. He's not been fired. We'll see if there is no they could go on and pull off some upsets and get some momentum and who you know who knows maybe they do get to seven or eight wins. I do think they have some talent on defense. They the pass rush. Obviously in the first half was there three sacks in the first half but then in the second half illinois came out and just ran the ball throat. So i think is one of the plan you can see the frustration and scott frost especially was what you're talking about in the second half where when things start to go sour and this is something that like i you know. I spent a bunch of time. Run alex when i got to oklahoma defensive coordinator there and one of the biggest battles they faced in he faced was when things start to go a little bad all of a sudden. It's like murphy's law sets into the mind of eighteen nineteen twenty year olds and mistakes. Get compounded what i saw from. Nebraska is a team that had a hard time. Getting out of its own way you know. Adrian misses an open receiver. You know. that's gotta be a touchdown. Look a bunch of quarterbacks. Can miss open receivers. It happens but it's like then. It's you know again the botch snap. There's a mist assignment. There's now all of a sudden. It's like geyser are just there. There is wrong place. Their heads are in the wrong place. You know when he's talking about we've seen this movie before. I think the players are seeing it in real time. And i think that only makes it harder there in their own heads. It seems like for him to come out and say that was pretty pretty telling Because that's basically what all the fans think to same so. He's hitch his wagon to avery martinez. Usually a quarterback hasn't progressed at all. At some point you been beaten out us. Briefly beaten out by mccaffrey. Last year than the mccaffrey that awful gaming they won't right back to tina's now he's gone so i don't. I don't see a lot of great answers there. Can i read something to you. Yeah okay here. We go and this is. This is where. I think the conversation should go forward. This is from the. The store did a couple years ago. He when he first got frost. Best argument sits almost five hundred miles northeast of lincoln where defending big ten west champ. Wisconsin has five top ten finishes in the past twelve years and enters the season as a legit playoff contender. The badgers rise led by tom. Osborne disciple barry alvarez has mirrored the huskers decline and then it goes into a little bit. The badgers built themselves into relevance without a single recruiting class ranked better than number thirty in the past. Seventeen years those rankings. According to two four seven and then frost kind of goes into detail. About what barry alvarez did question is like. Why do you think it's why. Do you think the model works in in in madison wisconsin and they cannot turn it or can't seem to turn it in lincoln with some rosalyn in wisconsin has been in place for thirty years so and to their credit. They have hired one good coach after another. Maybe with the brief exception of gary anderson but It's it's consistent from year to year over a long period. Nebraska has gone through two decades of was. Try bill callahan and his west. Coast offense though. Yeah i know. But i'm just talking about. Let's just about from scott frost getting there never. I'm just saying why has scott frost. He talked a lot about wisconsin and what they were able to do how it worked how it could work. He's you know the. I think the hardest thing and it just even what you started to touch on there is they just cannot turn the corner. Wisconsin has a clear identity and they recruit to it and it works. What's scott rascal. What's his identity. You know. I thought he's trying to bring what it what it was to. In and part of that may be what we talked about earlier with some some some high-profile profile mrs in recruiting guys that have since transferred which in itself speaks to. There's something going out. Ultra there that these guys want to go play elsewhere. Even like wanda robson wasn't some backup looking for. Blenheim is their star player. Decided he'd be better off in kentucky and then who by the way we had been awful on offense for glass rides and then again when you see the same penalties in myskina and just self inflicted wounds that speaks to bad coaching. It reminds me of usc no matter how many times klay health turns over that staff. They.

"John Mark here here on the WTMJ conversation with UW athletic director Chris McIntosh. Will there be expanded Football College playoffs? What will the big 10 look like? Down the road? That part of our conversation with McIntosh. All right, I'm gonna kind of skip over a couple things. You were an entrepreneur. You had a lot of success there. You kind of rebuilt your career in your life. Eventually, you ended up back at U. W How did that come about? Yeah, it came about in a way that I never would have expected. And that is I was invited, uh, to come back to VW in, um September of 2014. I was inducted into the Hall of Fame here at U W and the Athletic Hall of Fame coach Alvarez. Really went out of his way to make me and my family feel welcome and have such an incredible experience that weekend. My kids. They're pretty young at the time, and they really they didn't know what they had had done in college. It wasn't something that we talked a lot about. You know, I've got an image of them on the sideline during halftime. When they had the ceremony during the game, and you know their eyes were just wide. Uh, their jaws were on the on the ground. Um, it was It was just so cool. You know that Monday, I sent Very a note just thanking him for the experience and for everything he had done to make to make it such an incredible weekend and, you know, he replied back with just a note of simple notes that call me and, um, I I did And you know the conversation we had. It was not about what ended up happening in this. This transition of late, but It was about you know the the connection I have to the program and you know the the ways that I could blend value to the program and and help us here and just learning about college athletics and being an administrator and working within this context and see what happens And it was. It was a leap of faith for sure, but It seemed like one that was worth taking. And I did. So you learned at the knee of Barry Alvarez, Chris on a couple different occasions at different levels. What's the greatest lesson you learned from Barry Alvarez? Well, I mean, there's different varieties of of lessons. I mean, I've learned lessons from him as an administrator. I've learned lessons from him. As a player that are more applicable to each of those roles. I've learned so many lessons from him as a person that you know, can be applied to any aspect of my life. And and I think I came to Wisconsin without a lot of confidence and not understanding what my potential could be and You know people around me believed in me to the point at which I started to believe in myself, and I can be myself and trusted myself and perform and That's the lesson that really stuck with me. You know, I'm enough I can get it done. And whatever I put my mind to, certainly there will be times in which we stumble and fall. The lesson is to get back up and to keep going, chipping away at it. And you know, belief, and you know if we can just believe in ourselves My experience here at Wisconsin as a player, and then you know my career has taught me that there's a lot of truth to that, and it can lead to great things. Let me ask you about realignment. Look in your crystal ball. How do you think the big 10 looks in five years? You know, I think in five years the big 10 is positioned with, um Amongst a group of like minded schools and conferences with shared values. And I think you know college athletics. Is that an inflection point right now and It's a dynamic period for college athletics. I think we'll look back on this period as as potentially historic period, but Right now, You know, we have an opportunity to to display our our values and what we think our priorities and what we think is important, which is first and foremost education. That is the number one goal number one priority for Wisconsin and for the big 10, and I think five years from now you'll see us position with with other schools and conferences that are like minded Why doesn't the big 10 just pluck schools like Stanford or USC or others? Kind of like the SEC is doing? Could we get to that point? Do you believe Is that how this plays out? I think the way this plays out is more of a of a strategic alliance. Really, Um, because I think it can be something more than the addition of a handful of schools. I think it can be a stronger statement than that. I think it can be a stronger display of our values than that. And I think You know what you'll see through, but strategic partnership or alliance, uh, with other leagues can be more than Then just adding a few schools to the conference. Chris, Do you support expanded college football playoffs? I do, I generally do. I think I think opportunity for more of our teams and more of our student athletes to feel like they Are legitimately part of the hunt for a title for championship is a good thing. I think it's a good thing for our student athletes. I think it's a good thing for our fans. I think it's a think it's a good thing for the game of football. There's a lot to be worked out there and there are a lot of challenges in terms of the number of games and How it will be structured and how it aligns with timing of semester of the semester, the academic calendar finals and so there are a lot of details that need to be worked out. But But generally speaking, I think it is a healthy thing, Chris people who love you. W and they're in every corner of this state. I think were stunned when they heard about the Alando Tucker situation. What was your reaction? And how damaging has it been to the program? Well, John,.

"I just like total lowlifes trying to make a name for themselves. Yeah make him look important. Apparently this guy has a reputation that definitely precedes him. It's just totally crazy. So he started the company in nineteen ninety eight which is crazy because maybe he was done with college by then. So you know how i told you before with some of these stories where it's like they end up being around someone thou shows them how to do stuff like this is so he's another one. His mother rani married a financier named richard a atom and so for three years. Wish shapiro in the house. Adam was the subject of an fbi investigation for orchestrating a fraudulent loan scheme. So the feds actually tracked mister atom across europe and canada where he was arrested in nineteen ninety-seven and later sentenced to three and a half years in prison for fraud And by then that's when shapiro had ventured into wholesale groceries a business that he ultimately used to do all these investors. Yeah Yeah so learn from. Stepdad showed him the ropes Yeah i think that's what happened there. And then he was like oh well. I'm already in this wholesale grocery business. That's doing okay. So maybe i can recruit a bunch of investors and maybe his step-dad gave him ideas on how that works in how to do that right. So wait what was the part about the hookers again Would do was he. He through these lavish parties for these athletes. He would recruit them in. You know just sucker a man and be like all right. I'm gonna get you guys whatever you want for tonight. They went to like all the five star restaurants there. Miami and he bought him jewelry. He liked bought them strippers He also paid for an abortion because one of the athletes impregnated some girl. All sorts of stuff draper's oppressive trying. Yeah get you out to invest too. I mean athletes are pretty good market. They make a lot of money in a lot of them are young and not very skilled with their money. Probably yeah like child actor or something you know. Yeah and it kind of sucks. Because he had more than sixty investors largely from naples. Italy indianapolis and chicago eared. Because that's where a lot of the real estate tycoon. Like a lot of his clients were in those areas and they were funneling. Those investors to nevin shapiro through that tycoon. Real estate guy. Yeah so yeah and including barry alvarez like alvarez heads sixty thousand or six hundred thousand invested i so you know. Some of them didn't have as much money but a lot of them were like millions of dollars and some of the investors lost everything which is really not good. Yeah don't put all your eggs in one basket mean right. How did also so rich.

I'm not a huge fan of him because he recommended both sean. I coursed and bill callahan. Come to nebraska. But he's he's part of wisconsin. Why in the blazes would you wanna recommend something. That's gonna hurt his program right. Why don't we get to go in on our top five list of our favorite five players over the last well the years that we've been watching husker football because that's what this is about. We're not going over. We're not gonna give you the top five all time list folks. We're giving you the top five that we got to see in person or on tv. So i need to plug my computer inks. It's about to die so when you kick it off with your top five defensive players yes sir so as my dad Said we're gonna start with defensive because why not you know. Let's get let's get you know. Defense defenses win. Or what is it. The best offense is a good defense. So let's just start off with a good good defensive summary of top five players and how this is going to go down is i'm going to read all of my top five and just brief release briefly. Summarize why they're in my top five and then my dad will follow and we will continue on following that suit. So within my top five defenses at number five i put safety nate. Gary as a millennial. I'm twenty seven years old now Nate gary was a name that i swear. I heard every game at least five times. A game In some sort of like crazy motivating momentum changing way Maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration. But that's what it felt like a few things that i have written about him. Two hundred seventy three tackles in had at least four interceptions. An each of his last three seasons That's quite a bit of tackles and one of the most. It's it's not really a great memory. Like in the grand scheme of things. But i do remember the most about eight. Gary was when we played. wisconsin With melvin gordon. The melvin gordon. Four hundred yard performance Seriously he was the only one who is tackling. Melvin gordon the entire game if you go on youtube and you find the highlight reel for. Melvin gordon's four. Hundred yard performance. You will find almost every single play. Nate gary is the only one bringing him down because he found himself in the right part of the field and he was honestly one of the only guys quick enough to catch up with him or get the angle on him But the comments section is hilarious F f you just wanna laugh at a great youtube comment section go to the nate gary Versus the melvin gordon Highlight reel of melvin. Gordon's four hundred yard performance And number four. I have defensive end. Randy gregory just an absolute beast..

"City bowl berths thankfully. We have just the sort of man who's been given a lot of power right now. Barry alvarez university of wisconsin retired but now the czar of and kevin warn. No but if you watched his conference the other day he mentioned. How many times do you mentioned barry alvarez barry alvarez things like this i could see in fact it wasn't shocked me at all if this whole damn thing was his idea and he was on the horn. Call it all people and say hey man. We'll just keep things the way they are. Then they can they at all the godfather. We'll just we'll just keep things as they are four teams and they can all they can have nick sabin and everybody else goes seven and five. Enjoy yourselves you'll you'll like the fact that the track team now has sterling toilets to flush wall. You guys are fighting over music. City bowl berths. Good luck to you. Thanks it yeah. Bulls be ain't pushover either. But yeah i think if this were to happen. Wouldn't the prudent move then for texas and oklahoma just to stay put. Well then you had you get into pride. Yup and embarrassment and everything is okay. That's fine with me next. Paul says iowa state will be the fifteenth member of the big ten by twenty twenty five Here's what here's what i. I don't know how to answer this. Because i think one of two things will happen. The scenario that that was floated this morning they go through with it and not much else changes them or i think you'll see the big ten in the pack twelve together come together if not in a formal arrangement but like mutually decide to try to save as many football brands and in the prestigious a you that's the association of american universities that many of them belong to an iowa. State is one of them. So i could see that too and i really think it is happy birthday. I'm not doing that again. But i gotta hold. I think this you're seeing through mere darkly right now on this this move. This morning is a trump card. I did not anticipate like if we had done by. Ciller hold yesterday. I probably would have a different answer to this question. Okay but today this. I think we might be in for a level of political brinksmanship in cold war political gamesmanship that i had not previously considered. And frankly didn't think a lot of these people probably had either the stones or the brains for right. And i do think your boy. Barry alvarez has a role he absolutely. I could see him being the ringleader of all this and say here's how we're going to fight this. We're not gonna take in iowa state and kansas. We're just gonna keep the playoff where it is then. Fm they can just enjoy fighting over the scraps of the sec. With each other then make them make them turn on each other. Why are we turning on each other right. We're at a pill for colleges and conferences and and pillage and plunder everybody else no. No no get what they wanted. They wanted a super conference with these guys by. Golly you can all have it and we're just gonna keep the fourteen playoff. Just remind everybody that whole league is doing. Its own members to texas. Am dirty you think. Texas a and m. and missouri wanna welcome these two schools in necessarily know next. We'll go to johnny o. Cattle who says we're finally seeing the truth of matthew seven fourteen. How few the few are well. We're not we're not finally we're we might finally be opening our is here in this generation but th there's nothing new under the sun this is this is just what happens. This is a classic biblical tales. I mean you're old. Testament is constantly talking about this very. Yeah yeah and i can definitely see an lineal influence in your answer. Were were this is kind of a these things. This is the ebb and flow and arc of history. Through time. i agree and i don't. I agree to some extent. I do think we're seeing something unique in western civilization however that if we're not dealing with a biblical level event here. I think that we have to consider the the end of western civilization like this is our the turks of arrived at constantinople on the table. I think that's more of a nexus event than just the typical ebb and flow. That you talked about so for that. I'll buy probably somewhere between him. And you but i agree with you and you agree with me. So yeah we are with the paradox. Yes yes jar. Drinks says the fda will destroy what little credibility anyone has left in one or more of the vaccines by the end of the year regardless of the efficacy or safety. So here's a here. i'm going to sell on. This and i was shocked last friday. When shannon pre made this prediction that they would not do this they would not fully authorize them and and that after she said. I'm like you know that actually make some sense. I had a. I had a source of mine. Who worked who worked for the trump administration who told me yesterday they also did not think these would be. Fda fully approved at least not anytime soon and he said because our understanding in the white house was that if anything was fda fully approved and they had to be totally forthcoming about side effects. All of that data. Do they really want to have to do that. Okay i'll say i did not know that. Okay so i'm going to. I'm going to sell on this.

Ohio your your Your hometown there You know arrivals michigan state You know everybody. That's that's what we want to do and we're gonna do it or die trying gene. You hausky joins us from big ten media. Days sounds so formal but anyway that is your name. So i know you just sat down with coach harbaugh and had a chance to talk with him. What was your key takeaway from that conversation. You know when neither is You know he mentioned how energized to is. He was noticeable. First of all physically. He's different he said i asked him. You know looks like you've been working out a lot. He said he's been spending a lot of time with this strength and conditioning coach at michigan and he sort of have transformed as bodies really into that. He loves what they've done with the staff. You know he sort of turned half of it over. They've made some key changes on that step. He loves a feeling in that locker room in those meeting room. So i think that was sincere. He really does feel energized. Feels different feels like this team. This program is headed the right way. Well speaking of different. It's been about twenty four hours since the news. That oklahoma and texas have reached out to the sec. We don't know what will happen but boy does it have tongues wagging what have you heard. What's been the reaction around the big ten in everywhere college football well specifically here at the big ten media days commissioner kevin. Warren certainly acknowledged he was asked about it. I don't wanna say he danced around the question. I think it was more. He doesn't really know exactly where that stands with. Oh you in texas. But he does acknowledge the change could be on the way. But more importantly you know they. They named barry alvarez longtime wisconsin coach hall of fame coach as a special advisor to the big ten and barry alvarez charge included in that is a conference expansion so i asked a little later after kevin worn addressed the media. What does he know about this. He said it caught him by surprise he was interested in the timing of it. All he said that the big ten all the and he said we've had a million meetings the idea. The topic of conference expansion has not been raised. But when i said do you have to be open to the idea now. He said well based on what we heard about. Oh you in texas the idea. That is even being discussed the yes. We least have to be open to the idea. It's something that maybe we'll be forced to discuss at a later. Date right what would i mean. You have no choice at this point whether it happens or not you have to at the very least prepare for the possibility. Thank you and best of luck in the next few days in indy. We'll go back to dez and greg and desert. What tied to say about jim. Harbaugh being energized. He signed that extension now through the twenty twenty-five season. I mean i. It's not a make or break your. He's he's in michigan. He's gonna stay but is it. I mean do we have to recalibrate. Our expectations for michigan word. The expectations are and i watched the press conference. He gave earlier and most of the focus. Windy and greg was on the defense. Obviously because defensive coordinator dom brown is no longer there. And when you wash michigan last at least three or four seasons. I thought that they were able to score enough points. Based on the type of office that you expect from jim harbaugh office but far too often they got in shootouts and just not designed to be in those types of games because don defense just kept giving up more and more points more and more yards and it started to do it against opponents that you expect it from like from an indiana like from a michigan state. At that point it was. The writing was on the wall that they were gonna let go deeper the coordinator down brown now. They have one mike macdonald. Who's the was the linebackers coach baltimore. He comes over. Harbaugh talks about the staff the communication. Everyone's on the same page. Now they're gonna have seven returning starters from lashes defense but now you have to see if the defense of scheme that macdonald brings dan arbor will mash with the talent that he's going to have an arbor so it's going to be really interesting to see out the gate how the defense looks but he did look look the little more physically fit and you can tell that. Coach harbaugh was much more energized to greg. Here's the problem does when i watch michigan right now. The expectation level is the play up to the level of a penn state or ohio state. That's the expectation over the course of history but when i look at their actual personnel their personnel is just not there yes they have some good players eight hundred a great player along the defensive line like mcnamara's got a chance to be pretty good. I recruited well at certain spots but across the board and as far as depth is concerned. There are a long way away. So what i need to know. Is that this scheme that you reference both offense and defensively is the scheme going to actually create an opportunity for the players to play above maybe their current talent level. And that's the question that i have because when you watch the film you watched the tape guys are getting getting beat badly. Along the line of scrimmage at michigan which never happened and guys getting beaten badly in the secondary which never happened and offensively. They're not running away from anybody. There's no big play threat. So they gotta find some answers there and they gotta figure out a way to create. rpo's create problems for the defense because right now they're skill and their talent level across. The board is not recognizable when compared to some of the other super league programs in the big ten well michigan not the only school that has a year. they'd like to bounce back from it. Was it was a different kind.

I was running the coaches meetings. Uh, you know when you're going to play, when's the last possible time you could have a season? What's you know? What's the how many games is a season work to to an athlete? You know, and and we're just so many question marks, but to get it done and to play all of our sports. 23 sports all have had a chance to play this year. That isn't that is incredible. And I think it was probably not the right time to hand the keys over to anybody. But it's It's uh, I mean, it's pretty incredible, though, to think about all of the things you would actually built up over the years. That's a you know, that's all of a sudden an engine that needs to be maintained. So You know those bigger buildings, those bigger budgets, those larger staffs, I mean, Running a department in that moment, I mean cutting sports cutting coaches cut it. I mean, I assume everything had to be on the table as you were first going into this pandemic was well. You know, First of all, you halt all your building projects. You put a halt to all travel halt to all hirings. Um, you sit down, and this is very, very difficult. You know? How are you going to cut back? You ask your highest paid staff to take a a reduction in salary. You we We have to, uh We have to thin things out. We have to, You know, uh, Don't say lay people off. We were, you know. You have to decide who is necessary to move forward. How you move back. We've got a pair of things down. You're losing Millions of dollars. You know that 50 some million anti football in TV revenue. You don't even know if you're gonna play a season. You've got $175 million budget to start the year and no income for a while, Um, that's that's that's tough duty, so it was very complicated. It was very difficult. The furlough people to decide who is going to be furloughed. How long the cuts But those decisions had to be made. You have to. You have to be flexible you're going to be. You have to be nimble and be able to move and that's the last big challenge that you took the program through. But You think back to us? Um, that may seem like the most impossible thing. But I think when you look back to the beginning of this the now like 30 years, right of sustained greatness of of the department football program, first department. I mean, it's almost more impossible to believe right you. I mean, you grew up here? Yeah, I think you know, early on and you know for everybody that comes to games you see when Coach Alvarez. What 30 some years ago up at that press conference, and you know the swagger that you knew came every time that comes on. I think everybody gets a chill. And when you took that on And you said all the right things in Madison is a great town. When did you know? That you were going to be able to turn this thing around. The last game my first year. We weren't very good. Very limited probably had Five legitimate big 10 players. Troy events. It's great player, Don Davey great player. Gary Castro is a good player could have been a great player. Had we had him for a few years. These little done discipline. But had we had him. Uh, we could have turned him into a great player. But we we had some Decent players, but not no offense. The guys played hard. So we go to Michigan. We have one win. Maybe ball state, a good ball state. Really tough, all states. Good road, squat there A good run this by, you know, whatever. When we played. We played boys before they were boys. Yes, This was not Boise Pharaohs and Mike Samuel has to make the most ridiculous scrambled and the game and after the game, everybody is relieved the coach..

"You know, I'm from Ohio State We reach you guys have ever Bragging rights are very important and it's realistic. And so when we're when I was out east of the General Foods, and we had those kind of games where you might beat in Ohio's theater in Michigan. I've said some teams. That was a great feeling, and I think that's realistic. It's not somebody didn't well, it doesn't mean the thing it does. And that's what But even today when I When I finished as athletic director, and I went to the first game, I just walked around and tailgate parties and see people and things like this. And the number of people who came up and said Thank you. That's what it meant to them, and it really means a lot because that's really what it's all about. And so somebody say thank you, then. You know, it's like because you were in the same position that they were. And now they feel that they've got the tradition and success and that they are very proud about that, and so is tangible and I think that that's Wisconsin cyst right now because the program has continued to be successful and the resources of television Packages and things like this. The opportunities come by, and and you want to make sure that you're irrelevant. And as we said before, provide that added value, because that's where it's at, because again, they don't need you to survive. And so you don't want to. When we first took over, we had We had a student fee and things like that. You know, you don't have those kinds of things today. Well, you talk about tangible. How about renovated Camp Randall Stadium, a coal center. You know the upgrade to the world class facilities. That you didn't inherit right? Those those were those were, uh, you know, tangible, you know results of of your 14 years while you were there, So it wasn't just you know the program in a better place, But the experience or, you know so many athletes in so many different sports, and so many fans experiencing those sports And I think they do encourage, Cole said it best when he, uh it was kind of ironic because I we were announcing a new basketball coach Dick Bennett, and I didn't want to have it on the day that it probably should have happened, which would have been called on April Fool's Day. The I said, We're not going to announce the football basketball questions. April Fool's. Let's move it up a couple days and we do it. Okay, great. After we announced Dick and had the press conference and then went back to my office got a call from Sandy Wilcox at the foundation, he said. Say Ace on Saturday. We're going to announce $25 Million gift from Senator Herb Kohl. Guess what did is April Fool's Day, So I said we didn't know it's dick better. But we're not the $25 million gift, which most people didn't believe he believe realize the importance of that. And and when he was asked by what why did he do? He could have used it for many, many other things. Because they wanted to, and he felt that strongly about the university. That's where he wanted to invest, and we had a great time. We're looking around the countries with him and the kind of facility and it still to this day. Even though it's over 2020 years old. That it's a great facility. It's and those are the kinds of things that elevated Wisconsin's reputation. Yeah, Chatting with Pat Richter is number. 88 retired at Camp Randall Stadium that he helped renovate during his 14 years as director of athletics. So you're the longest tenured director of athletics at the time. When you step down and Barry took over. Um, what do you think? I mean, you've seen Barry run a football team. What do you think was going to be his ability to run that program? Well, I thought he would run. The program was in pretty good shape. A lot of things that cleared the decks. I mean, we obviously had to deal with cutting of sports to get herself financially viable, and we had a title dying situation that occurred and so Those things have been kind of put to bed. And so the program was was in place and they had good coaches and to find the biggest, they all said to him, I said The best thing you can do for yourself as an athletic director when he first took over his B a damn good football coach because that's really what it is in football is successful, and everything else kind of comes along with it. Then, of course, probably the biggest thing in the big 10 was, Of course, the television revenues I mean, To think that they get like $50 million A year is just incredible. And it's based on the strength of the conference, obviously, and but I remember when we first started out when I'm with very I mean, we had to try to find a million dollars every year in the budget money, New money. Just the same system basically called cause for our role of costs and to remain the same not to do a lot of interesting new things because that's the way the budget works. It's just the role of costs are Things that just improve your process Only if you can add more moneys in philanthropy and development and good support, And and those things happen with the success of the program. So, Pat before we let you go, and you think About Barry Alvarez. And you know his legacy. Uh, you know, coaching, and then in that director of athletics roll What's the thing that stands out to you about? Uh, you know about this now, you know, 30 year plus era, uh, from the day from the day you hired him to, uh, the today he's stepping down this week. I'll tell you what it's uh you kind of puts it in perspective of 30 years. Maybe does that a long time to you, young guys, But I'll tell you what it went pretty dog gone fast at this think that that's happened and where that period of time. And I think like anything else, that we are grateful for the the things that he did, and, uh, and the success that he had because that gave us an opportunity to bring back a world class university to the world class. University with a solid athletic program and and the people are there that after we left carried on that that tradition, and I think it may be even stronger and In a daylight day like today, which is very complicated. It's not easy and you have to be relevant magazine Martin Post birth thing is that Looking back on it and things that we said we provided added value, and that's what he did. And and I think that when we had a strategic planning, we wanted to hope to get to a ball game and do the final four and things like that. We With that in writing that in the year 2000 What would you look back and see would like to have accomplished And now they've been able to build on and be very much more successful as well and have good people in place and be a good program that everybody around the country would love. That's very important because you know that gives you recruiting base and people support and they know that the solid run by solid people who have been able to be successful and to build on the traditions that have been University, Wisconsin's history.

"In mind. This is still. I'm a master compartmentalize which at times by the way is a gift and at other times occurs because you can use that to justify making decisions that you should not all right. So i mean i still regard him as the greatest my favorite player of my youth. I cut my teeth on him as a michigan fan as a young kid with him as our quarterback. And i still love him as a player. I look back on those years fondly. But i have and i'm by it i i want. I want to be wrong about this. Man i do. I really do as much as i think. There's a coach up the road. That i think is a generational talent because i'm very familiar with the program that he's coaching. I've i've had more access to that program than any other college football program in the country. I've seen what it takes to win their how hard it is. How little winning his actually done there. So as much as i would love the opportunity to have a guy who's up the road and the generational talent and matt campbell. Be the next michigan coach. I really would love. I would love far more for Gym to go out there shock. Everybody win the big ten beat ohio state. Keep the favorite son former heisman trophy finalist. I first round quarterback the hero of our youth. Keep stability in the program because anytime you make a coaching change man anytime. it's a risk. I mean if anybody in this room december thirtieth two thousand fourteen day. Jim harbaugh hired. If so if if we would have hopped in the delorean dot comes back and says marty mardi body. I've been to the future. Harbaugh doesn't beat ohio state and six years would you guys would you guys have set was a championship. No chance now. That's still chant. That's real life it happened. So that's that's further proof. There are no guarantees. A change if you can maintain continuity you should but you have to have success that justifies continuity right. Your program is a great example of this. They flirted with going outside. Barry alvarez's normal nexus for about a year and a half and then berry was like and they were actually still winning games. Yeah and berries. Like i'm going to fire this guy now before him coloring outside the lines makes us a loser later right. He stepped into the middle of that and fire gary anderson. He was actually still winning games there because he just didn't like the trend line of how this was leading for them to kind of go. Outside of the blueprint if you can maintain continuity as a as a in a in a college program you should do it but you have to have a successful and probably in any business. I would imagine but the success to justify that you can't have continuity of continuity sake of the people that are there suck. You have to make a move. But i understand. There's no guaranteed move. And so my opinion is. I started last year thinking that they had found something authencity finally and i had seen jim come out of his shell and get involved and sometimes they weren't in political causes. I agree with and it's like you would go to rally. And then he gave an interview to national review talking about how bad abortion is so but he was coming out of his shell more and more being more involved with his players. And i'm starting to think maybe we're kind of getting this and then we were like one of them i. The only schools in the country had like no cova tissues the whole off season. And and you know what michigan man. They're doing rectal testing. They're michigan sheets the other way like they want it. They'll put seventy five layers of bureaucracy on the team just to just to embolden their sense of self righteousness just like brag delaitre when you beat them. Well we only beat us though because we're better humans than you and made a tougher on ourselves. that's kind of michigan's mo. and and. so. I really thought last year they would take full advantage of that and they completely collapsed. The whole program. Imploded imploded on site. And so i have lost all faith that he can recover it. Can i ask you a hypothetical. That i thought was good so i got a riot smile on my face. But let's just say let's say iowa state home to map campbell right. Now and michigan played the first game of the year this season. Who would you root for. I'm all dude. I hope he went fifty ten. Okay i mean i i you you've got to say you. It's a no lose situation. Let me tell you what is a more difficult proposition. Here's the question you should have asked me. Let's say michigan is seven five in a bowl game against iowa state. ooh okay. that's a more difficult situation. Because i'm still rooting for michigan. But there've been a couple of times. I've actually by routing i've rooted for michigan rooting for the opponent we played nebraska in an alamo bowl in two thousand and five. We went seven four that year. That team was frigging loaded with players. Should never gone seven. And four. And i i wanted nebraska to beat us in that alamo bowl because i knew if they did it would cause lloyd car to make some changes on his coaching staff because we went eight and four. We're still in the top twenty five you excuse that right be seven and five and you lose to a nebraska team. You're a double digit favorite. Then changes are going to be made. That's what happened. We did make changes. In the next year we started eleven. Ano- the other time was brady hoke last game against ohio state that i i wanted ohio stages to put it on us. Because i didn't trust at michigan would still move on even if brady hoke put up a good fight in the final game. So i always root for michigan. I just may root for it. Through circumstances that may not directly be a win. And so let's say i was. State has an has a really good season by their standards but isn't quite at the heights of this year's preseason expectations and there are nine and three eight and fourteen and they play michigan in a bowl game in michigan. Seven five. What's the better scenario for a michigan fan. Iowa state michigan wednesday gaming. Goes eight and five and then we all just keep lying to ourselves. This thing's going well. Or have i state going there and beat us because seven and six looks pretty bad right. Okay and your seventy coach. That looks bad. that would be a more difficult scenario. Gotcha dodd one. Eighty degree opinion swing in the last year. Well years ago. I thought that i would never ever be the co author of bestselling book. My opinion has changed there. It is going to be flogged for this soccer. It's like the athletic is equivalent the athletic equivalent of breaking bad. Where it's really the median episode of breaking bad. Really slow moving. But then those there's those moments of catharsis that just keep coming back kind of what soccer is betting on soccer steve's talking about vaccines all the time. I'm a co author of a book. I mean it's.

They're played for three years in the NFL before neck injury kind of knocked him out and to your point, very, Alvarez said. He is the guy and it looks like Greg.

Lou Holtz talks Notre Dame and more

"Lua alluded to you as being a builder and again i go back to the interview which you had here in the studio with us and the obvious question from a person when you They asked you about the rumors you going to. Usc and you said usc is one of the three best jobs. And i said wait a minute. I know notre dame is one of the best. What's the third best job. And you said the one that i get and it turned out to be usc but the university of south carolina. And and i'm just wondering when you reflect back about taking over that program. Why did you take over such a struggling program. And what is it is allowed. Lou holtz everywhere. He has gone to be able to build success. What i foresee a we will not arrive. I think we had three offensive linemen on scholarship is all we had. It did have a quarterback and didn't have a running back to his per se. But you know you grin there you you just you try to fundamental you. Try to do the things that we talked about. Just you know. Build build the football team. And i have gone to six different situations in college and never inherited a winner and went to bow game no later in the second year with matter of fact after going on eleven we finished seventeenth a country next year and beat ohio state in a bowl game following here i think we finished loveth in the country. Beat state again on january one. But it's not because guy it's Coach it's all about the people. If team i mean it's about coaches and players. All all really tried to play their road and believe that you can do something. We read great fan support in south carolina. We were below eligible this year. We'd basically accepted a bowl bid and then of course after a little probably had with trump said in my last football game we decided not to go to a bowl game. I would've liked to vendor micro in a bowl game and yet at the same time within hayes and i'll have the same legacy Last was in clemson was involved. Refer also that's not a great legacy to have necessarily but it's a good football team. Many people coming back in. Like steve spurrier command. And you know he. He's a guy that likes to win. And i think he can win earlier. I believe that in the bud by heart. I think he's an excellent coach. I think the players will respond well to them. And i think we took a the longest losing program the country and took it to a bowl game and he'll take it from there to the championship level when you talk about coaching today And i think about francs being fired after he won nine games and i think about the expectations that go along ty willingham of course sopa but notre dame in his first year wins his first eight and then what has happened to him recently as well. What are the expectations of football coach at a major program today. Well i've been figured that basically very very impatient but you know they. They want instant success. One instant gratification and want to go the top. That the trina goes to the university of louisville inherits a very very good football team. From coach smith went onto michigan state. Now goes between things that a tremendous job but You know feel air. And he has those great athletes. They have great success. Urban meyer. who. I hired at university of notre dame you know he goes to Utah has instant success and everybody sitting there saying well. Hey he can do it let. Let's go get that guy that can do it here that we can win immediately will You know having code having smith there your quarterback as a pretty good asset to have it set about where somebody also had success. And i am sure they they look at it and say well gee they came in and they were down and all of a sudden they one. That's what we want to do and everybody all the fans wanted to two things who's going to be the new coach and he will be the next quarterback i. It's unbelievable i. i don't care you. You want to become unpopular to hurry. Go for being the second team quarterback to the i team the anything too is if you think about it and i was thinking about notre dame just the other day what should be their expectation level and i know the obvious as well to win championships but if you look at the landscape of football today lou there's a lot of teams that are able to get outstanding athletes that don't have the same requirements to get maybe to get into school There's a lot of schools have reputations of putting players into the pros and what have you so having said all of that. What should be the expectation at notre dame today as far as their season and their teams year in year out when further. Joyce hired may at the university of notre dame. He said. I wanna talk to you about a couple of things. Basically not negotiable. These are not negotiable university. Notre dame we are need understand. This now isn't even before i was ever offered the job at you. Know we we. We will not redshirt. We will not take transfer from junior. College will not take a transfer from another school against need search chain core curriculum classes for years of english. Three years of math through calculus at center players are going to miss practice because of late classes or or or labs or tutors or things along that line. The players are going to live on campus. We are going to have great facilities. You have nothing to do with the discipline but athlete on campus We don't pay a whole lot You're not allowed to president of the university. Notre dame was the rule when say they gave the president rates once that they could give me a raise anyone on all that and he said with the we're expecting to compete for a national championship at least once every three or four years and I didn't find anything wrong with ed. And we did the head it. I think that should be their expectations. Not necessarily this year even next year. But i do think They expect Charlie wise to compete for the national championship. And i think he will. The same things are saying about notre dame they said about whenever procedure went there years ago. They said it. When i was there i remember my first year recruiting at notre dame. My aunt had us fifty eight to sixty year before. I got there in their last football game on national television and You go into a home to recruit a young man that have all these That have all these articles in there. About how Notre dame can't win anymore and the schedules to tough. There's all this. And there's all that. And i just don't believe that i i think you know. The sec schedule's pretty tough When i was at university dame might think at fifty four percent of games ever coach there were against a top twenty five football teams. But that's part of notre dame you play the best you know. We played washington when they're really good. We played tennessee. We played texas We we we played Miami florida played. Florida state You just that's just the way you did it at notre dame and I don't think it's any different now. I might be a little bit down right now but yeah. I think it's going to be fine but lou. Isn't it a little bit different. In the sense. That i used to think of notre dame and you probably going into a home where you know it was. I want this kid. The kid's gonna sign right there. It was like with john wooden at ucla. I mean john recruiting because everybody wanted to come and play for john wooden at ucla during those particular years but now the competition it. It's almost like well. We've got a pro passing program so if you're an outstanding quarterback you're going to go to this score that school i mean isn't the the mystique oh most of notre dame and not to their own detriment or fall but isn't it a little bit perceived differently today might be but i don't think necessarily it should be. I mean on tv every saturday. One time when i said notre dame we had fifty seven players active in the nfl. The next was penn state with thirty nine and third with southern cal with thirty eight But we we had to work hard. Recruit again we. We found uphill struggle. But here's the different. We could go to california and would we went after navigate. It was us usc or ucla. When would end attack between us. Texas tech today and you went into florida as a youth. Florida state miami and florida. You went into nebraska to be between you and the university of nebraska. You could go anywhere in the country and you would have legitimate chance to recruit the best athlete in that state but you would have to use the beat. The home state and you didn't always do that but when they start talking about well. Nfl i want this type of program. Notre dame's not a four year decision. Support here decision. What do you do in your football's over guarantee you're gonna play in the nfl with china education. You'll get what are you gonna learn. And are you going to be better prepared to go in there. You know i was watching Tonight on tv On some sports show where they had the ten major mistake officials made and one of them was grown bettas called tails and the guy said hatch. And i had to laugh because a whole time as notre dame the first thing i said the locker room before the game was we will call tales. We always called. This was a game. But i just think that You're still a forty year decision. Not a four year decision. You talk about the only thing that's going to change it from where you are today to where you'll be five years from now the books you read the people you meet in a dream a dream and the baby. You're gonna meet university in our day and they're going to be the ones that are going to be illness companies and being. Ceo's and they're going to be the leaders that those are the people you're gonna come in contact with and then you get him on campus. Let them talk to your athletes now. The guy that doesn't feel comfortable in that environment isn't gonna get isn't gonna fit well notre dame anyway and now there were always people that didn't want the discipline did want the the challenge. Academically didn't want to have to work that hard on their academics guy that they won't be interested in the university of notre dame necessarily but one thing i used to laugh about was you would read. You would read these top twenty two football players in america. What schools air considered and other day. It'd be listed on about eighteen oven. Maybe seven of them. We were recruiting because we couldn't get in school academically. But they would always put notre dame was one of their schools Florida not because it made them look good so to speak and I think notre dame will get back. I really do because it's a national school a special school. One of the thing that i think is the lou holtz legacy when it comes to football in. It's almost like parenting. In a sense. You mentioned about urban meyer. I think a barry alvarez a host of other coaches you must feel awfully proud of the the legacy of lou holtz from the coaches that went on from underneath year wing onto other programs either as assistance or successful head coaches as well. I've always felt that. I learned this from woody. Hayes have an obligation to prepare your coaches to become head coaches. I'd always explain why we did things and how we did it. the philosophy at center. I think we've made it look simple that everybody would come in and they go. I can do that. I wanna be head coach. But i went down. Visit very alvorada in preparation for the bogue. Gabi speed come down and one time we had about. I don't know maybe a sixty some former graduate assistants were either in major college or professional that had been graduate assistant said many people gone on u. p. care coach for me at the university of arkansas. We we started him out You know monte kiffin coach for him in the defense coordinator tampa bay et cetera. Just you know it's just so many coaches you enjoy it and that's one of the reasons why you wanna talk to me. Now's not because. I prepare them but because of the contribution they made our success but not mind. There's there's their contribution to my success is far greater mike. Entre bution to there's
