"A game with me to talk about all things Irish demand himself, Dr Lene Clark. Hello lynne. Hey, bob. How're you doing fine? For the fighting Irish one of those seasons that like have one of those again, you know, what it's so infrequent that they've had that kind of season. And I suppose if you're in the business as long as he is you're going to run through that. But this is one where that perfect storm. You had graduation losses from last year injuries. You name it things that could have gone wrong. Did in fact, go wrong, and when you're playing in one of the best conferences in the country, you can ill afford to have those types of situations happen to you. A lot of optimism going to this season. But Bob is you all know coaching for many years spent together since July when they went to the Bahamas out. They just need a break from basketball it concentrate on academics and just an appreciation for Pasco ball. And then get back on the hardwood alluded. A much different team out there. A team that was really unlike break characteristic lies the past. And I think the one thing that hurt him to is you know, that they? Every time you think they're turning the corner get a little bit better. And somebody gets hurt. I mean, you name an and key guys just getting hurt. And it was so hard to come back from that year. I mean week after week it seemed like. You're exactly right. And it really affected all parts of the game. Because they couldn't go five on five. They were going four on four because they didn't have enough people on the bench managers in there. Right. An expert by but nNcholas Jesse in that game against Georgia Tech at the Irish woman had a great. I got fourteen points many goes down with a back injury. And there was speculation that he would not play against Louisville on Wednesday. But. Back loosen played. I think about twenty three minutes, no points but pulled down four rebounds. He was not playing his game. The Irish get twenty one points. Had an up and down season Derm double figures. So you can see that there is some potential greatness there. It's just continuity fourth goal digit scoring in. There were Notre Dame scores with four people in double digits. They usually win. But it's really who is going to rise to the occasion on a particular night. That was pretty much the same in the SEC season this year from really was you play a difficult schedule. Everybody understands it. You don't have much margin for air as we mentioned the injuries happen. You make you lose some tough ones. Maybe you should have one and you put all this together. And you can see what happens. No one's used to fourteen in nineteen season at Notre Dame after having had a decent recruiting year. So you're you're hopeful that things will turn around next year in and I'd be surprised in fact, if they didn't. Going back to the little things. Just the fundamentals of basketball. The Irish did not shoot the ball various effectively this year. Three point shooting was abysmal free throws, which is really fanatic. Mark the Irish with under Mike Brady leading country a couple of years ago. They really struggling, but just to kind of summarize it Bob Prentice off a freshman who is done a great job leading the team this year. Three ten second calls in the past week. What's the last time? You saw ten seven call. Well, not very often. Kind of summarizes the season. Let's go back to the fundamentals and this work on the little things. And then the big picture will start to become more. Crystal clear. Clark joining us on the Saint Vincent sports performance hotline. You know, I didn't realize this had paid attention which I don't normally do we had six scholarship players from the Jordi is a game against Georgia Tech on Tuesday night. Yeah. It actually Liam. No again, getting a start the other day to he's a fifth year senior the only person that leaves from the team. But that was you know, dice Kudo to him to get a chance to get in and get a starting beard for the fighting Irish. But yeah, it's tough to win games. When you're down low on the practice four. We're not practicing. We'll get together for about an hour and get out there because we can't afford to everybody else hurt then. So. Really trust the coaches. Yeah. Mueller lot in. So you take those experiences, and you try to translate into something positive than as you said everybody can be back next year. And it will probably be a different story next year for my pray. All right. I'm I'm into it. Now, I'm going about five minutes, and I can mentioned football is that okay? You can talk women's basketball women's basketball. I mean Muffin McGraw dean all they do is win. But I I'd be remiss if I didn't mention football Notre Dame spring football going on as we speak. I still think it's early. But the be that as it may give me an update on what's happening on the football field. Well, the football team was off for spring break. They'll get back on the practice field next Tuesday. And then another thing next week is Notre Dame protein is going to be held on Wednesday K have seventeen former Notre Dame players working out in front of NFL guts, and coaches and per day is really a chance for the MVP. Players who were not invited to the NFL combine or who couldn't attend at a chance to be more personalized with the NFL scouts, and coaches, most notably San muster percent was not invited to get a chance to work out. But the spring practice will conclude on April thirteenth Saturday when will have their ninetieth Andrew a blue gold game which stands for the fans to see how the team is progress during the spring drills most notable looking at the quarterback position within book and culture coke. So this time last year. No one thought they'd be playing win the final four so to speak. So what are the expectations coming up for this group? I think he's right now the expectations is consistent. You've got the returning quarterback something that there was still a little bit of a controversy last year. Citrus Bowl win over LSU was in bulk who led that team to victory. And so you went this spring finding out who is going to be the number one quarterback is going to be right? This year that you have a designated number one quarterback. And so it's how much improvement will in book have had over the spring drills. And then the development of Kobe in case yearbook goes down, then you lose a lot in the backfield with running backs. We'll see how far Armstrong and twenty Jones junior will stare at that position wide receiver. You lose mild working to the NFL draft. You'll see how chase Klay pool will do as well as christening was coming back, but another positive would be the offensive line veteran. Offensive live returning. The big loss was Sam muster for the center would chance workout down the pro day, but Trevor ruler and a fifth year senior will probably fill that role the defensive line. Look, very solid as well as the linebackers even though they lost it through tranquil tape on Coney. And that'd be defensive backs. Look solid as well with Caleb Elliott and Troy fry coming back as well. As the lowest yeoman, Bob, really the big question. Mark is special teams cooking. His graduated as well as the punter toddler Newsom. So that is going to be a key area to still an issue. Well, no kicking game is so crucial in determining who was gonna win. A ballgame is Dr Lynn Clark from Irish one. Oh, one you can see his great work on our Facebook page, and you can also good Irish one on one and take advantage of that great opportunity. Dr Clark, always great to talk to you. Thanks so much. Great weekend. Bob. Thanks a lot Linlin Clark Irish one. Oh, one Notre Dame basketball tough year. Listen, that's. That's. Number one, you're playing the toughest one of the toughest conferences. I don't wanna get into that argument for heaven's sake. Of the in the country, no margin for error, even when you have all your guys healthy. And so you lost such tremendously talented people from year ago. Your team is not the team you expected. You you had it set up. You knew you're going to have the graduation losses. You had the summer trip. You come back. And then the next thing, you know. Yikes. You get people hurt wrong people. Her never got a rhythm never got going. There are much better team than. When they're healthy. There are better teams. So there's that to think about plus look, you SEC's pretty good. We all understand that coming up. We have schoolwork update with the man himself. Rob connett? Mr reminder. I'm not going to be tomorrow. Greg Greg Stohr gonna feeling for me? He'd be watching my favorite lacrosse player..

"Oh, yeah. I'm here. I think that really changed the, you know, at least in the first half anyway change the momentum because yeah, the blazers took the opening got their first they wanted to toss. Relax receive. They drove fifty one yards on the ground again. And that kind of a grinding out offense. It wasn't a fancy offense. Jim strong Tommy Reiman or or hammered away at the at the uh at the at the Americans defense really ripped off one run of twenty four yards. You got to the five or even start around. Right. Ed dole for the for the end zone. And like you said it looked like he he'd crossed the goal line broken plane as they say and before he fumbled the ball, but they called it a touch back to the ball with through. It taught me reamin said as he crossed the goal line. He would sit and he fell the ball drop to the ground rolled out of the end zone. So the television replay like you said confirmed the score, but the official order to touch so again. That change they the complexity of least the first half where they fell behind because I think that you know, they were you know, changed the momentum. They had that mobile. They had scored that touchdown. Like, you said it could've been a whole different ballgame. It could have been a ball game where the blazers were, you know, get down early lead take the to the crown out of the game. And who knows where it went went into like, you said, it could've been a even more in inspirational an amazing story, then if they won the game, especially on road in Birmingham. But you know, it was not to be was again, and, you know, against that us against them kind of a mentality that you know, it seemed like everybody was against them. The whole the world seem to be against is just us. But you know, brand was marina team didn't get that twenty to nothing lead on the blazers. Again, they in Bob Davis back. He was back from the injury. They came back and. And scored twenty one points toward the end of the you know in all of them in the last last quarter Davis hadn't even completed the past till the the first day of the first plane last quarter. And he like you said had a seventy six yard putt returned by Ron foster who took it on his own twenty four when all the way and that brought them within one point the difference in the game was that the American scoring in action point, which was the extra point they used in the WFL. You couldn't kick it you had to use a runner pass for it. And he blazers couldn't convert on their action points. That was really the difference in the game was just an excellent point. But if they had that touchdown stand up at the beginning of the at the game. Like, you said who knows it could have been a completely different story, even more consideration and more amazing that they would have won the championship after it happen to. All right. So let's finally talk about the aftermath then after this game after in the weeks after. What happens to the magic? Check of Bob Prentice. What happens to the team? Give us a sense of sort of were winds up. And I guess I'll give you a little hint here or little setup that there was a great quote..

"But also perhaps at what ultimately happened was repossession of actual items. And and assets of the team after the game in a in an attempt to to to collect what had been passed owed to them here. I mean, it was. I was you know, the IRS any. Okay. Well, let's play the game. But we're gonna get a certain kind of of the of the receipts. And yeah, they they were in the locker room and the the Americans they won the game twenty to twenty one. They were celebrating their victory and the IRS agents are confiscating their helmets their their jerseys. And it was story. The guys were passing their stuff out to their wives out through the window. So they could least keep it in a as like, a collectible and the keepsake, but you know, they were getting their, you know, their uniforms repossessed right there in the locker room when they're celebrating winning the championship. So it was just there was just one bad story after another even when they should be celebrating the league when they should be celebrating the success of the league that here's a team that won the championship. They have to deal with the fact that their uniforms are being repossessed in the locker room when they're celebrating their championship. So again, it was just that idea bad, publicity, bad. Bad news just every day every every every newspaper you read every story. And again a lot of that. I would say goes back, the, you know, the the NFL they you know, they weren't gonna help them. Did he anyway because it's a rival league? And a lot of the newspapers, you know, probably had, you know, you know, had been covering the NFL. They don't want this team to look good. So it could have been a little bit on that way that they really emphasized a lot of this negativity. But you know, they're a lot of it. Once was justified ain't just had a lot of negative news. A lot of negative aspects of the league that really made playing for the team and playing the league hard and difficult, and again, that's what makes us story. So great as how and ahead overcome all these problems and overcome all these difficulties over the over the course of the season that still almost won a championship. Even when they were pretty much broke by the time that game was being played. I I'd love to see the entire version of. That game of the clip that's sort of circulating out there and YouTube is only a part of the game because not so couple of quick things. So one I mean Birmingham rushed to a twenty to nothing lead early on. And it even seems like the and a ferocious comeback by the blazers to get it to to twenty to twenty one including a seventy six yard punt return for a touchdown sort of as the game is sort of nearing its end, but not without controversy. And by the way, this is the game, by the way, where the that one point five million dollar. Check by Bob Prentice was shown during halftime of the broadcast. Right. So clearly, it seems like the team is got some level of encouragement not only to play the game for its own for their own pride in their own a team members. But also the fact that there's actually a glimmer of hope that this franchise will live on given the the the entreaty of of apprentice in France with his his check. But the controversy though on the field was Tommy. Freeman scored a touchdown apparently in the first quarter that was nullified, and it looks like the television replay shows that he should have been in in the end zone to actually have given Florida. It's I score. But in turn turn that into a touchback and arguably if that touchdown had been awarded into blazers favor, we'd be talking about the the ultimate capstone of a crazy season with Florida being the champions, not Birmingham..

"And it was just I think they just got overwhelmed at that someplace where they said probably just to up their hands and said, let's just try to make it through the best this weekend. That point. All right, as we sort of round the corner here who's this Bob Prentice guy because it seems that a guy is coming in with a salvation plan come October. I who who knows where this guy and his group sort of come into play. But I apparently I'm one of the national television broadcasts, he's flashing a million and a half dollar check that he's serious. I guess it seems to me that there was a it's not only sort of to save the team. But also, I guess to be part of the the renovations and or the upgrading of the tangerine bowl stadium, which we send her hinted at earlier. Guide blonde Prentice shows up. He's it's right before the Philadelphia game where they're gonna play the bell in the playoffs. You know out into looking for investors for months, you made all these promises you couldn't keep then they they announced this guy. Bob Prentice he showed up and that at halftime of the on the playoff game with the bell. They had a T like you said had a TV conference lie or this guy. The wave of the Czech saying, hey, he was a CoCo beach banking investor who was going to help out of the blazers because his kids like football. He was ready to four million dollars into the team. And some investors behind him some guys from CoCo beach, some some folks from the area in again, he presented check for a million and a half to the general counsel. Bob Deutsch on the blazers on TV to pay off the debts and the payoff the thirteen weeks of back pay. It was drawn corporation called TWA. Of Nashville, but when they went up after after the blazers had won that game. Do each went up to Nashville they of said, he all of a sudden got cold feet. He didn't want to he was wondering whether or not he wanted to or not wanted to invest, suddenly they started looking into it again, another yet another person who said he had money and he did. And he just did not have the again that money that he was promised was just empty promises again to this team that they got they they heard an admitted hearing for months that this thing you're gonna turn around. Here's another, you know, the, you know, silver lining in the clowns that's gonna come along. Just like any that we've been probably Hugh for months, and again Prentice was another one that was just another Shylock another kind of say Stor kind of..
