About everything was so ticket and make enough money to run your program. You know, they don't have that much problem now financial making money, some of them do, but, you know every every stadium in, in, in the conference, Alabama, Georgia, Auburn Tennessee all these big stadiums when they play us our football team. This empty seats would. Oh, it's a big problem. Now, there's you know that in and. But to season ticket sales would go up if they had that game coming into home and home every year. Komische it would go up and, and save the keep them on all us coast can't get them next year. Is that, that as far as you know, they won't say on seats you know, when you buy them every year and they not going to give them up one year and can't get them back to next year? So. The.

And in a big city he lives in the country. So anyway, this is the Goshi ation continues. Because he doesn't understand is we all have twenty five minutes left in the show, and he had more things to say Mark, what's the status report? Well, okay, Paul. So we've had a little phone snafu, and if coach is watching coach, we need you to hang up your land line because we accidentally hung up on you and he's not entering a cellphone. Oh, so he has a landline. Yes. And it sounds great and him on. Yes. So really my fault coach I got I finally got him on the landline and before I could put him on hold on. I have the phone hung up on him. So I'm thinking that, he's, you know, waiting for you to bring him on the air, but he's actually not connected. So stand up to the landline. Go on. I'm not sure even know we were on television. So. Yeah, well, if he's listening to the show. We're going to give it a yellow college, try here, though, Paul. But you can maybe take another reason why you hung up on coach. I honestly didn't mean to it completely my fault didn't hit the hole. Okay. We'll go back to the call. Sorry, coach. Right right in the middle of this great interview, we're going to take a phone call. But this is why. This is live. This show is not scripted, like all those other shows you watch in the morning.

"For the click back into this spring. I think a lot of people expect it. You know what it does seem like they're setting all of us up for something here? Doesn't it? I think that people who start to, to pick against Alabama are gonna really regret it. I I'm just come to that conclusion. But that once I pick against Alabama, that's when they go on. These are on there like oh, that's right. They still the head coach and I still have be best players in the country, but Trevor Lawrence is good. Not look too bad Chuck in the bowl around over the weekend and he's still got for play. You know, I think he's just. I just saw some of the lines for the season have started to trickle out in the game at two two road games, Alabama fans or concerned about one at South Carolina early in the year. Alabama's posted as an eighteen point favorite in AM later in the year. There are double digit favourite. There are thirty one point favorites against Tennessee. Maybe maybe that at thirty four point favorite against ole miss maybe maybe Vegas telling us something, I the only game that I would be concerned about the ones you mentioned is because of what they can do the cruise minutes of Kelly JIMBO Fisher get another year. What these guys. But everything else founded about right? I think that I, I think that they'll be fine with those with those very high betting odds. Right. And that Auburn, only minus thirteen.

"Ended up bet you've seen this in the past as well because what fans and maybe those of us in the media fixate on the people in the arena. Don't I think I think coaches are similar. We were just down that. Spring meetings in Destin. And I mean these guys, I watched as you've been there before I watch coaches who compete against each other. And every in every facet. Laugh and talk and hug, and, and carry on lighter, there is there is no competition. Yeah. And I ask a little about that because I was like look there's gotta be some moment when you guys are racing up the stairs. Or some trying to juggle bottled water faster. And he's like, yeah. Here there. But really, he's like, no one on the field really understand what it's like to be a quarterback. What's going through your mind on and off the field? When you're in meetings all that kind of stuff what you see on social media to get around twenty twenty four guys who are just like you. You kinda wanna pick the brain. So one thing that he told me they talk about their experiences on campus. What it's like you know, it could be in those mainland's. What's your quarterbacks coach? Like, how does the head coach kind of deal with the youth more stuff like that? They're not really big an Xs and os. I wanna talk to each other. Hey, they don't wanna give anything away and be they see how they relate to each other Khalil. Tate's something that's not really sped out. It was like it's really nice to get around people who operate like you do. And they feel and since the same things that you feel that any bridge. Closer and you can start a conversation and someone will be like, oh yeah I know this is so you can have those intimate conversations. And it makes you a better person the other side of that is, then you'd get out there and you start throwing the football route these kids and a little bit of that crop up on that. So it would Easson silver that he loves coming out to this camp. I think this is third or fourth year because when he was little, he's looking guys just like him. And he said it was a goal of his to be a camp counselor. And I was like over being college. Like, obviously you want to be a college quarterback. And he was like, yeah, but this is like on the same line on. I was a little. So to see those little kids, and like getting sell fees, and all that kind of stuff like back the kind of thing these players love this before they go, you know, throw themselves in front of a strength. Coach is going to be yelling out of the next couple of on. What are these guys do from now on, because they have this. I know a lot of them are counselors later in the summer at the manning, passing academy is is at kind of their schedule of especially the most. Elite quarterbacks. Some of them have double up and do the manning and the Steve Clarkson, and a lot of go straight back into workout expand alienated told me that they start up Tuesday of this week where he had to get right back with the strength crew Khalil Tate. And Jacob Jacobites like I said return to class so they basically just got the weekend off. They came in late Friday night. So they didn't get the full experience that some other guys who were totally off these. So they had to go straight that, but class on one day, it just kind of depends on a lot of schedules. I was surprised at how many guys I start back up some workouts. So CEOs, a couple of guys like a month before they really had to get into it, more voluntary stuff. But.

"Let's, let's ruined one of the great rivalries in college football history. Certainly in the in the southeast. Let's just ruin that because I need a stupid recruiting weekend. Come on Kirby. Smart doesn't need another recruiting weekend. He's kicking. Florida's butting recruiting right now one of the needed another recruiting weekend. Well, a couple of weeks ago, you, you wrote a column we're talking about the irrelevancy of Georgia's tradition. And now you're suggesting that his new name will be Kirby dumb. I do think you have it in for curvy smart. I said Kirby smart. Don't be Kirby dumb and try to change this rivalry. Obviously Kirby smart is a very intelligent man to get where he is. He is in the coaching profession. But in this particular instance, yes, I think he's being Kirby dumb. Because again, he talks about recruiting recruiting weekends and all of that, to me, this game is recruiting advantage. I know a lot of players from both Florida and Georgia who grew up wanting to play in this game because it's so special because it's a neutral site asplin, these God has, but Balu s champ Bailey. Hell go ask. Fran tarkenton. How special this game in Jacksonville? Again, I'm just bringing these and I don't know what they think about it. But I would like to I would like to know what some of Georgia's other players think about this. Not, not just Kirby smarter. He's been the coach for three years. But there there's a sense, and I, I have in fullness car until three years ago. I'd never been to the game. I have been there three consecutive years. I think. I understand the weekend seems like a lot of drinking a lot of rebelling and partying, and that's great. That's part of college football tradition. Jacksonville's, certainly an entertaining place to go and they love college football there. But I just don't know Mike, if you get outside of, of, of the Georgia, and Florida region that this game..

And that angel series is just like his DNA is all over that series in, especially the Hindu game and him greeting Henderson outta that Henderson's come around. He's the first out of the dugout to hug him and he's just kind of like the emotional fulcrum of that team. And there's this great at bat he had with Mike whitt there in that game in that inning when we need like three to three runs that inning. And he's like yelling at Mike Witt trying to knock math, and he gets a single and he's just like he's I fucking love that guy and the narrative just became Bill butters that he made the play in the World Series. And then it swings around. It was actually unfair who's remembered. And this whole thing that we do, I do feel like if, if the words won the series of that the rain, it really would change the big picture, ceiling of how remember these last three years. Whereas like actually that team was so fucking awesome. It didn't matter where they had their in or not. Which is really dangerous for him because he cares about this shit, right? Because it it may all be bullshit. Right. Okay. You're still before he had this calf thing. He was the best pointedly. He's the best player early. The numbers are staggering. And we saw it, but it made Golden State look different and you can't just say well that team when seventy three games and here, they are again because that's not fair because they don't have the same debt because thirty million of it sitting there and Durant, and Harrison Barnes, even though he sucked in the finals, he at least was somebody you can play. It took they took him out for zeal e with six minutes left. Right. But all of those guys everybody that came in was a mess like Festus missiles. Layup. Yeah. And you just like this thing.

It had fun with it didn't run from it capitalized on it. I thought shuttle showed a lot of grace and humility. So I think that when people bring up that infamous moment, you know, people like oh, you know, don't speak ill of Roebuck. I, I'm not I don't look at it that way. I look at it as I'm paying tribute to a guy who handled a moment. A lot of people would it would have. Absolutely crushed them. He ended up handling it with a lot of humor. In grace. Kit.

"I was utterly unfamiliar with. It's a it's not to MIT regular dementia and understandable. Apparently, it's horrible. It's just awful. I thought that I had seen Bill Buckner in. In shots at games within the last three or four years, I guess f- but. A year or so ago. There was something wasting disease. Stony. So I was he's died. Sixty nine years old young, far as I'm concerned, Bill Buckner, played and this. I didn't know he was in the bigs. Twenty two years with the dodgers. He was with the Red Sox. He was with the cubs, mostly. He won a batting title with the cubs, batted, three twenty six or something like that. He had twenty seven hundred and fifteen hits really good player. But and here's the but everything he did in his career was overshadowed by this one play I was there. I was out in the office box in right field. The Mookie Wilson hits the ball. It goes through his legs catch, and he's good fielder. If he catches that the Red Sox winner, I title, and then sixty eight years while the game was tied after by then because of the wild pitch. But they don't lose it. They lose it. They don't lose it stand. They lose six. Lose seven and takes them eighteen more years and Bill Buckner becomes in league with Mickey Owen with Fred Mirko with Ralph Branka as tragically flawed and baseball player on fair shorts obviously unfair. But he also committed that era. He went back to Boston. I believe in nineteen ninety he was back on the team and was got a standing ovation first time that he was into news. Did you ever see the curb your enthusiasm thing with him? Yeah. No, sir funny. It's dr. Bill Buckner catches a baby. There's a ater I shouldn't be laughing at this, but it's played for laughs. There's a fire. Somebody throws her baby out the window. It hits on the netting and the trampoline effect where the firemen are and Bill, Buckner runs and catches the baby. And this is I guess Larry David's crazy way of saying, come on, now forgive Bill Buckner. Right. So Bill Buckner. It's, it's lost that he was a really good player. Yeah.

Who's a basketball player for the Golden State Warriors. They are in the finals he is hurt. He is not playing and he's a guest known to be thin skinned and active on social media. He has been caught in the past having created fake Twitter accounts to argue with NBA bloggers and reporters via don't have a burner Twitter account era fool. Went which again gets more to do with like modern culture and stuff like that than sports. He's just of the aids were social media's a big thing when people say mean things about him, he fights back like with just random fans. He feels like he has to respond to a mistake. So thin skinned. And like if people say, the warriors are better without him, he feels like he's got to attack him. But anyway, so he's not a good love. He was asked by a reporter, the other day. Why do you do this? Why do you get engaged in the social media, and he said, because I have social media, I'm a human being with the social media account. He feels a qualified dance. He said, I could see if I ventured off into politics or the culinary arts or music, or gave my input on that. But I'm sticking to something. No, I know I'm qualified to talk about basketball. That's pretty good defense. It's still a mistake, just in terms of your overall, overall happiness and joy ventured off into politics or the culinary arts. That's funny. It's all part of the whole feeling like stuff on social media matters. It just doesn't, and it just doesn't matter that much. But if you, if you live in that world you can get worked up that year. Friends posted vacation picks and you haven't or something it just don't cares. Stay away from it. I say stay away from it, but nobody is yeah, yeah, you're being ignored, sir. Oh, one thing as excited about politically just see Boris Johnson. The blonde haired guy who never comes hair, the British guy, this crazy stuff is almost certainly going to become the Prime Minister, Theresa may announced on Friday. She's resigning. He's almost guaranteed. It's almost no way to stop him from becoming the prime minister. And he's, he's Trump like an insane and say nothing. Big time, anti Trump guy isn't he? You know, I don't actually is what he feels about Trump. I know how he feels about Brexit, which is four. I'll tell you how I feel about spelling labor with a unit. He's one of the video, he's one of the leading supporters of Brexit is willing to do it with no qualification whatsoever. He's a break sits here. Okay. So he's a nationalist. Maybe I've got him mixed up with somebody else. Another mayor, London's just a crazy anti-trump conman the Brits. What are you gonna do? Another another wacky person on the world stage. Yeah. We have a beloved friend of Armstrong and Getty, who happened to be practically there at ten Downing Street, when Theresa May resigned Nigel Rotan, no no, somebody else in there. All sorts of protests in youth chanting about global warming and the rest of it. And it was quite the chaotic scene. I guess. And are you gonna do? I tell you what somebody's going to do something about this. There were some irregularities during the Obama administration, having to do with the intelligence services and the investigative services looking into the Trump campaign, the rest of it. You've heard all about that. Marshall's got that in his news coming up, right? Well, there is a glossing Graham with some strong statements over the weekend, then Adam Schiff, with some strong response have shift. Oh, please. Oh, how I would never wish anybody dead, but shift show, Kevin ship for brain, right? Dumpster fire outside shift show, the smallest sneck I've ever seen. Could he be muted somehow can can God be mute him with Zada thing? I know I don't need them dead. I would just like to shut up one of the stranger attacks by president on a rival politician of pencil neck. He's commenting on the size of the gentleman's, neck. Thinnest neck, I've ever seen as if next thickness is a big thing, politics a long ball hitter. Oh boy. Anyway, either was James Madison, probably the another aspect that similar just the use of intelligence capabilities, that hasn't gotten a lot of attention. But it is striking to me was UN ambassador Samantha power. You remember her red haired, gal, very smart reviews. It forceful, though, speaker cetera. But if you she our powers powers power, she singular, she's not lie. Samantha power million dollars. Our, our. Activate. Yeah. Power. Okay. Anyway. If you have certain positions within the executive branch, you can ask the intelligence services to tell you. Should've started with this. So you've surveilled a foreign well a foreigner. You've got phone taps on them. And they're saying, what would be good is, if we could get the no one of our people at the top of the Washington Monument to watch over PC. It's an interesting plan and the American says, well, that's a, that's a heck of a thing. I don't I don't know what I can do about that. But I, I don't know I'll think about it. Well. The foreigner who is making the call is identified but the name of the American if they're not the target of the surveillance, whatever's kept secret. So you don't have Americans being surveilled by their own government in a way, that's illegal, and unethical and immoral and unconstitutional now within certain positions. The government you can have that name on masks, see, you know who it is. But you've got to have a really good reason for it. Otherwise, we're just surveilling our citizens, which were not supposed to do in this country unless we have a judge's warrant in the rest of it. Specific to them. Well back when John Bolton hard core harake asked John Bolton. You know, don't you the big stash back when he was, the, the ambassador to the UN, which was Samantha Powers' gig? He I'm verifying this. He asked for three names to be unmasked three people total. Samantha power. Unmasked up close to three hundred. It was close to one day for every working day in twenty sixteen which is so incredibly wildly unprecedented. It's just it's like she invented the idea. And now there are journalists who are getting leaks, and information from other people within intelligence who are making it clear that it was all about Israel and settlements and Israeli policy. The Obama administration was working really hard to counteract conservatives within Israel or building settlements in defying the Palestinians in this way and that way, and that it would appear that. They were they had an aggressive campaign to use their powers of unmasking to survey, all Americans, who were supporting conservatives in Israel. And I don't know if the American people have the attention span to hang with this, but that's pretty outrageous. That she would be doing something like that more than or virtually one a day, unmasking Americans unwittingly caught up in foreign surveillance. We shall see the problem with the a lot of things that happen that administrations do that aren't right. So once they leave office, people feel like there's nothing we can do now they're out of office. But I think we really need to move beyond that got to be accountability. Jails and prisons and dungeons. Well, so we touched on this last week worth mentioning, again, the we, we built the greatest cyber weapon in the history of cyber weapons, and then let it get away and it's being turned back on our country. Now. Whoops. That was a mistake letting get away. Also have this flapper in charge? Then Brennan, those. Yay. Who's who wasn't charge? I think Clapper was in charge them. And somebody has compiled a list of celebrities who claim they've slept with the most people. That's distasteful is pretty much whole food, but this list here. Ten I got several basketball stores, several rock seven rock and roll stars. Yes, several actors I think it's all actors athletes, I'm an actor Jack I acted in a movie over the weekend. More scenes to do. I've not been fired. We got one publicist, which if you spent much time thinking about he could break them up with should I get to that or not? It is distasteful. I bet no one. Other than you know my. Lawfully betrothed. Yeah. Well it's, it's terrible. It's who would brag about that. It's just. Talking about why would you honor that with giving us the Liz McHugh act per summing up in a moment? Been five Clermont drive clear.

Kind of like took a lot off of.

"So you know what I saw over the holiday, weekend added or coming up on it. But it's it is in the range of one hundred days to the start of the National Football League season, which I hate the concept, not love the NFL right as we continue on the rich Eisen show. Mike Keller, Brian Butch joins me as we guest host today on the rich Eisen show, depending on where you are in the country summer, hasn't fully arrived in the northern tier of the United States. There's been a lot of liquid sunshine and summer hasn't truly arrived, yet the conversation turns know the NBA finals begins now major league baseball is just that constant in others know until you get to September and October. There's no full drive. It's the constant is the daily chapter being written in the major league baseball world. But it is it is interesting. To, to kind of see the storyline developed, when you think of the one hundred days away, it's. Let me just seeing this, by the way, on, on Twitter from Jeremy shop. Double check this. That Bill Buckner has passed away early on the morning of today early this morning surrounded by his family Bill Buckner fought with courage, and grid is all things in his life. Our hearts are broken, but we are a peace, knowing he's in the arms of, of his Lord and savior, Bill, Buckner, sixty nine years old. One of the all time greats. Many it was an incredible hitter. He's remembered for one of the least memorable moments in World Series history, with the bold loan between his legs against the New York Mets. But that belies the the real story of what a great hitter. He was at a great player. Dodgers cubs Red Sox, most notably. So just seeing those words, come in the Bill Buckner has passed away, the age of sixty nine so we continue to move towards the NBA finals that gets underway on Thursday baseball. You know, continues to, to, you know, dot the i's cross the t's as they worked through just passed a third of the way through the major league baseball season. But when we view the NBA finals in Toronto and Golden State, beginning that match up on Thursday, and by the way to Toronto for those who aren't fully aware Toronto, ads home court advantage in the series Toronto being Golden State, the only two times they played in the regular season. Which doesn't count now. But for those who think that this is a walkover for Golden State because Toronto doesn't have enough star power outside of. I think maybe there's another thought coming to this. What's your view on at Brian? Yeah. No. I think there's it's going to be a series I think I've Asli the home court is going to play a factor. I I really think that you'll Toronto wins game one and then Golden State wins game too. It goes back to oracle. And that's kind of where you get, I think goals say, does win this in six, I think there will be a little bit more of a battle than what is expected. Obviously having cousins out. Kevin Durant out. I think those are factors and you can get a couple of games there if you're Toronto again, though, I think you really look at this team in Golden State and what they've done the way they've played. There's just so many weapons. And then you look at Toronto and you've got coli and yes, there's a lot of people players. Fred vanfleet and, and, and Powell and Gonzalo guys that have done some really good. Things last couple of games against the books, but in the end, I mean, you, you, you just look at the firepower Golden State has so much more that guys that can go and perform at a high level in any game. Is that always going to be Steph, it might be clay might be the list goes on and on for Toronto? It's, it's, it's really one. And then may be somebody from the bench is Fred vanfleet Guinness shoot the way that he shot last three games. I highly doubt that I'm curious as to the peripheral players, there's a lot of questions is a lot of question about whether this is the end of the Golden State's run. I'm not so sure it depends on what happens with players outside the name of Kevin Durant, Golden State won titles. They were championship caliber team before Durant arrives. He pushes them over the top and wins to finals, MVP's don't know, an Chris Broussard, join us in the previous segment said he's not sure that K D plays in. In this series at all. And I think there's been some subterfuge for Golden State as far as information that's out there on Katy but is this the end of their on, I tend to think not? But it depends on what happens with the other players owned Golden State talking about dream on green and, and just all of their peripheral cast of characters or you'll get a looney. Guys off the bench Quinn cook got all those guys, are they going to add something to this punch of what they've had, I think so far, they have, and that's where even the addition of bogut, as you know, both offset, what, what goes all is going to do. There's different things here that does add the pieces that they've added have been so successful. They've been the right pieces. They've done the correct way to hours or now in the books, one more yet to come. We will visit with non banks in the third hour. Yes, I the NFL is never far from the top of the page storylines where we talk about when the world of sports. So the NFL will again, get its do when we visit with Don banks in the third hour of the program, it's been very sad, tragic weekend in the loss of life. And we just find out another with Bill Buckner having died early this morning. The all time major league baseball, great that news just confirmed in as Bill Buckner has passed away. So we share that sadness with you on this Memorial Day. We continue one more hour, yet to come law side of Brian Butch. I'm Mike Keller. And this is the rich Eisen show.

"He in wasn't terribly old man. And obviously. Suffered some health issues lately. But I think Bill Buckner and time, we'll be even more appreciated. He was the guts of that eighty six team. And, and often did it, you know, obviously playing on two bad knees done the game, the games that we cover it can be very cruel. And that was a tough road back. It was twenty year forgiveness recovery project with Bill Buckner. I mean he had to move and his family didn't feel comfortable or safe or loved. I mean, that was a long process to get back. It really was if you've never seen the thirty thirty that got done called catching hell on the eve, Bartman, episode in Chicago. Yeah. There is a there's a middle portion of that all about Buckner. And, and what he went through and the long process of, of being turned into the scapegoat by by fan base by city by region. Yeah, it was an ugly. It was it was a process that, that should have never taken the route that it did to begin with. But it's it's it is good that I think most people now with Red Sox fans having experience four World Series, styles and fifteen years. People have now at least revisited Bucknor's legacy to a degree that I think needed to happen visiting down on the rich Eisen show. John, let's go on to the National Football League. They're going to do something different this year where video replays concerned on pass interference calls. I don't know if you understand it yet because I don't know any of us do. What should we know about it as an exists, and what pitfalls are involved in it? Well, obviously coming out of the owners meetings, the league annual meeting in late March in Phoenix. They had taken a precedent setting step of opening up passing or Fearance calls. And non calls, obviously, like the one in the saints Rams NFC title game to replay review somewhat curiously last week at a one day owners meeting in Key, Biscayne, Florida, the spring meeting per se. They decided that they wanted to scale back some of what they just approved and they gave the competition committee, the right to tweak the rule, which is now going to instead of allow for the replay review assistant for in the booth to make the replay review decision in the last two minutes of each half, the throwing that back on the coaches they did not apparently want New York, I'll river onto have too many instances where he's looking at pass interference place and that would have been unlimited obviously, whereas coach has to deal with the constraints. Of a two challenges a third if you get both right? You have to keep a time out as well because you can lose time out if you're wrong. So this is going to really I think limited even further how much pass interference is gonna get looked at. And then lastly Mike, the they wanted to take out hail Mary plays. They don't want those to be reviewed by replay at all. So you're you've got a watered down version of what was originally passed in March already? I don't understand how they eliminate and I understand why they want to eliminate hail Marys because there's pass interference on every hail Mary ever. But I understand how they want to. But how do they determine what is and is not a hail Mary? How do they ought to say? Hey, you can't challenge that you cannot throw your red challenge flag out on this particular play the I think it's a Pandora's box that they really haven't thought through completely. I mean, they say they think they'll come up with a pretty easy definition for hail Mary. I think smart coaches. Are going to you know find a loophole around that. Let's say if they, you know, say, well, you got to be at least forty yards downfield and you throw the ball, forty yards then, then teams might start throwing at thirty eight and, and try to get a replay review that doesn't fall under the heading technically of a hail Mary or they don't put as many receivers into an end zone..
