David Byrne on Turning 'American Utopia' Into a Book
"David byrne joins us now. He is of course the musician. The filmmaker visual artist and here primarily as an author of a new book. American utopia. he wrote it. And it's illustrated together with myra common david thank you so much for being here. Thank you this is obviously tied to a larger project began as a concert. Tour than a broadway show now. A film directed by spike lee and simultaneously a book. Can you talk to us a little bit for those who aren't familiar with american utopia which i feel like. I don't know who those people are at this point. But tell us about how you conceived of the project and the various forms in which it's appeared and was it all like known from the beginning that would be in these multiple formats going backwards. No it was not conceived from the beginning that would be all these multiple formats. I didn't imagine. In the beginning. That it would end up on broadway that that would be filmed serve one thing leads into another okay so in the beginning i imagined wanted to see if i could do a show where all the band members were mobile taught. The technology might have arrived where that would be possible. And it also required that i would have a sufficient budget because that would mean i would have to turn say drummer into six different players. All playing drum and percussion instruments like a drumline or a samba. School of something. Like got and i realized okay. That's more personnel. Can afford that a could. I went ahead with this. Which opened up opportunities for staging and choreography and movement and then lighting and everything else just follow. Once one thing was kinda complicated or decided then door would open. And you go okay. That means it then we can do this. And now i can do this except etcetera so some point during the tour. I kind of got wind that broadway producers had seen the show and thought probably i'm going to guess in response to the success of bruce springsteen's show people thought. Oh this can go to broadway. This could go to broadway in broadway. Audiences are ready for this kind of thing now. This is a thing that can be done very very different than bruce springsteen's show. But i think the idea was that whatever popular music contemporary music could work on broadway thing just didn't have to be all broadway music. I wrote additional things for the broadway version extended it reshaped it unused broadway. Audience would kind of come with different sets of expectations but also kind of opportunity for me to talk more to kind of shape the show in a different way kind of address things that you may not addressing a concert tour where people basically just wanna dance and have a lot of fun. The director alex timbers was helping out and he said david you know you could maybe have a a drop curtain here and that in a certain kind of way when the audience is coming in and staring at the stage and the curtain is down in some ways you can have an image that sort of prepares them and in a little bit in a way for what's coming and tear. Myra coleman yes and alex showed me kind of an old graphic. Did he probably got off the internet. That was sort of like the fifty states and what each state is known for and this may be done like in the forties or fifties or something like that. It's a school thing. What were your favorite states. Because you're laughing. I'm laughing laughing because you know you can imagine the some corn and some of them mining or of them are cattle. Oh yes and so. It was also folklore folklore from each state. So the be paul bunyan or casey jones. John henry all these american kind of bits and legends were in there. And i thought okay in wanna do that exactly but i thought that's a nice direction. Thank you alex. So i went to myra who i'd worked with before many many many years ago and said would you be interested in doing drawings and paintings for this curtain.
CDC Issues Sweeping Temporary Halt On Evictions Nationwide Amid Pandemic
"Millions of Americans have been at real risk of eviction over the past few months. Many of those people have now been given a lifeline in a dramatic move. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is ordering a halt on vacations across the country through the end of this year NPR's Chris Arnold is reporting on this and joins us now Chris Good Morning. So this I mean, this is a huge move by the CDC. It doesn't those seem on its face like something agency would have the power to do. Hey Rachel. Yeah. So I mean you might think because especially so far during this pandemic, we've seen you know nothing very forceful from the CDC. It's been criticized for having voluntary guidance that let states and businesses can do whatever they want. You know I if that's the CDC SORTA walking on little. Kitty cat feed this though is the CDC you know booming it's feet like Paul Bunyan, or something. And doing something much more dramatic and the CDC says it does have the authority under the Public Health Service Act of nineteen, forty four that gives the government broad power to stem the spread of communicable diseases and look I mean the basic idea of course is that forcing people out into homeless shelters or crammed together living with relatives that that is very likely to get a lot more people sick. So, who does this eviction ban apply to specifically? All right. Well, quickly to qualify renters have decided declaration saying that they tried to get unemployment benefits or other kinds of support that they'll make partial payments as much as they can afford to their landlord day can't make more than about one hundred, thousand dollars a year or twice that if you file jointly. And that if you're a victim, you have no other option than homelessness or living with more people in in close proximity. which would increase the risk, which is exactly what they're trying to avoid. The rate of Krona virus here. So how many people are we talking about? How many people with this effect we're talking about a lot of people when when estimate from the national low income housing coalition is thirty to forty million people in seventeen million households or families were at risk of losing their home by the end of the year of something like this wasn't done Diana tells the CEO of the group and I spoke to her last night. Well, my reaction is a feeling of tremendous relief. I. Mean It's a pretty extraordinary. And bold and unprecedented measure that the White House is taking that will save lives and prevent tens of millions of people from losing their homes in the middle of pandemic. But she says also Congress or the White House should have done this months ago. Instead, we've had this crazy quilt patchwork of federal state local moratoriums. Lots of people weren't covered and thousands of people have already been affected. What are you hearing from landlords about this Chris? Well, insurance, the landlords are saying well, who's supposed to pay for this? You Know Democrats in Congress had plans for a moratorium but along with that was one hundred, billion dollars of assistance to renters and landlords to pay for that that is not a part of this order spoke to Greg Brown with the National Apartment Association. We're really concerned about this because the piece that's missing is the most important piece in this whole process, which is rental assistance because if the moratorium is put in place, rents are not paid, but the owners continue to have to meet their financial obligations and how are they supposed to do that? Who's going to help them pay their bills and it's not just landlords who rental assistance Intel who heard from she to says, look this needs to be coupled with federal money to pay for missed rent. It's a half-measure eviction moratoriums on their own. Create financial cliff for renters to fall off of when those moratoriums eventually expire and back rent is due and renters are no more able to pay then than they were at the beginning of the pandemic. And, we should say all this puts pressure on lawmakers to make a deal and come up with some money to to pay and and help people struggling during during the pandemic.

Scriptorium: John Bunyan & Persecution
"Welcome back to another episode five minutes in Church history on this episode. We're wrapping up our great time here at the Van encamping collection and the script Him here in Orlando Florida and we are standing in a jail cell while it's a replica of jail cell and and it is a jail cell for someone who is very crucial one of those towering figures in church history. None other than John Bunyan and here in this room that this may be like bunions jail cell complete with a very primitive bed or a number of artifacts and books related to John Bunyan. I there is an early edition of Pilgrim's progress with an engraving. It's interesting that these early editions of Pilgrim's progress progress were so read. They were just literally devoured by people as they passed from hand to hand and so copies. Just don't exist. They we're literally read out of existence as people just gobbled up this beautiful taxed that so well portrays vividly portrays the the pilgrimage of the Christian life. Well so here there's a would fragment from the L.. Stowe house there is a key to the Bedford furred prison and actual key from the Bedford. Prison reminds me of that scene in. Pilgrim's progress where Christian is just so despondent despondent and they're in the castle of giant despair. And they're locked deep deep down in dungeon and they're just absolutely despondent and then all of a sudden Christian remembers that he is a key and he reaches into the folds of his cloak and he pulls out the key of promise anti he with a shaking hand tries it in the lock and it opens the door and they come to another lock and opens that lock in another gate and it opens that lock and they escape and what a beautiful portrayal is of the promise. That is God's word and that's quite a key. Maybe bunion had that particular key in mind. When he wrote his text? You know Bunyan wrote other books. Right beyond the pilgrim's progress and one of them in true bunion scholars. Say that they. I think it's a better book than Pilgrim's progress. It's the Holy War and here too is a copy of the Holy War from sixteen eighty. Two and Bunion also knew a thing or two about suffering. Didn't he lost his first wife is oldest daughter was born blind and also he himself himself suffered in prison and saw the death of friends and also just personally suffered so in sixteen eighty four. He published advice to sufferers. And here. In this bunion room there is a copy of that as well. So all of these testament to the author John Bunyan and his wonderful classic. The pilgrim's progress all of that is here and the script Oria in Orlando well continuing our journey through bibles and texts related to the reformation. There is Fox's acts and monuments since I'm looking at a fifteen ninety six edition of course this book. Chronicles the MARTYRDOMS. Most of them happening under bloody Mary. Harry but Fox begins his story actually back. In the days of the apostles as the New Testament was coming to a close and Fox records forged the many centuries of martyrdoms and especially those martyrdoms related to the British reformation and next to it is a Bible. That is a stirring testament to one of those martyrdoms. It's in that great English tradition of Bible translations ends than that line from wickliffe. All the way up to King James. It's a Matthew's Bible at dates to fifteen thirty seven. It is opened the two pages and John and the reason it's open to pages and John is that they're on those pages. There's actually the blood stains means of a martyr of the British
Harold Bloom: The Shadow of a Great Rock: A Literary Appreciation of the King James Bible
"You know recently Harold Bloom died he was the figure of extrordinary controversy Oko Zinder other circumstances is he would have been just another professor but he was the professor who was defending the Western canon as he quoted which meant that he was talking about Shakespeare and Milton and of course his great of Shelley he studied how these writers in the Canon influenced each other he wrote a book called the Gang Society of influence he really became the writer of our time talking out that tradition now let's acknowledge that tradition is rarely taught in the university the way it was in the generation of Herald I had the pleasure and I would say the honor of talking to her world boom at his own apartment in New York I will say that I disagreed with him about many things things when we aired these interviews people wrote in Yes harold bloom was an elitist yes he was but we should have one of everything and there are leaders and there are populous and there are ever very kind of response that you can have two good richer this is harold boom from our conversation on bookworm unlike his book the Anatomy of influence literature is a way of life which seems a settled and masterful book the shadow of a great rock is audacious and I would like to say even dangerous which tells us that a great mind doesn't settle into somnolence or eternity it's always at work work and always making trouble this is the nature of the mind Harold Bloom my wife would appreciate how do you how do you feel you've spoken of the many controversies you've causes mentioned some of them in this book it's never going to see aw both well hated and well loved and particularly with I have to say about the New Testament here has already started Israel fury I've got nasty email nasty letters and even a couple of nasty anonymous phone calls you say that the ten handle translation of the old the New Testament is the breakthrough in Boston since they burned I mean he's both a great model a great writer and the Grand Bigot with that it's not full they were all bigots of goals they would all I'm very glad to see you and myself crucified angry anti-semites but it went with the territory as it were Tindale was martyred burned alive before he could finish his translation of what he called the Old Testament as you will notice throughout this look the shadow of a great rock I insist upon referring to it as the original testament Tomahawk the Hebrew Bible and what is called the New Testament by its proper name the belated testament which is also beginning to get into the usual difficulties but that's fun Tindale was burned alive before he could translate the prophets and most of the great writings and that's how a loss because tremendous writer in every way you compare to Shakespeare and Milton I would say that the greatest writer certain in English paps in any language I'm able to read is of course we shakespeare indeed have now reached a point where I've totally infuriated but I like doing that of course with them the horrible shakespeare establishment these dryers dust moldy fix calls by simply saying there is no God but God his name is William Shakes sure of course after Shakespeare you have to put chaucer stunning extraordinary writer without really Shakespeare did not have been possible then tindale and Milton I would say of almost equal imminence the English novel sales of Daniel Defoe and John Bunyan at its very beginning wouldn't have been possible without Tindale he was not a lyrical writer but a very great narrative genius I of course New Testament which was complete is the entire basis if the King James New Testament and is major writing is largely preserved in the Geneva Bible and subsequently in the King James Bible and various scholars who have said that it would be very difficult to think of the style of certain moments in King Lear without the Tim Daly an element in the Geneva Bible our I think basically justified you say that the two greatest works in the English language are composed really within a decade need

"I don't know. Paul Bunyan type of beard, or I think that. I think that doesn't look good. Be honest. I don't think that looks good. But if you have something well trimmed and taking care of you know. And you can grow one. That's another one because I think if the minute that they allow beards everyone in their mother is gonna grow when thinking they look good, and let's face it. We don't all look good in a beer, but. I don't wanna make this a beard conversation because I know it gets people angry and all your arguing about this. Or you're not arguing about this. I'm just saying it's something so small that if they gave it to the agents, would it really be that big of a deal? I don't think. So I don't think so. And I think that the excuses that they use or horrible excuses. So that's another one and in lieu of agents getting attacked if in lieu of caravans forming in lieu of one issue after another that affects agents. Let's look at the northern border. You know, what the weather gear because it's a different color. They can't wear it. So instead they gotta freeze. It's a big deal. But in lieu of all those other things going on. They're arguing Fischler. That's that's the one thing that they've dug in on. And that's what I think is ridiculous in new of we're losing agents at a record pace. You know, we're not gaining more agents were using more kinds of back and forth. That's that's that's what I'm just saying. You know, I'm just saying there's so many big issues on the table that for them to argue. The little ones is is kind of upsetting to me. And that's that's all I'll say to say about that. I am broadcasting from my hotel room in sunny, okay? In sunny, Washington DC, our nation's capital. It's not cold. I guess it's been cold throughout the week. I showed up last night.

"bunyan" Discussed on Attack Each Day: The Harbaughs' Podcast
"Here and attack each day. The Harbaugh's podcast. We wanna thank Jim Abbott once again for being our guest here on the show, and we mentioned it a little bit earlier in the program, but we're going to Jack Harbaugh tell the story now Jack Harbaugh actually recruited, Jim Abbott, the football player. And of course, Jim was a great punter and kick punter and quarterback at Flint central in addition to being terrific pitcher. So Jack, why don't you tell us about your recruitment of Jim Abbott? Of course, Jim Abbott at that time was one of the, the renowned names and all of Michigan. Thais, school, Michigan, athletics, and Fred Dekker was the baseball and western and told me that he was recruiting two convenient and he had a partial scholarship. I maybe a half scholarship that they didn't offer. I don't think falls or there weren't many fools being offered, then that I remember and ask me what I thought I said, I guarantee you. Whatever you're giving him. I will match it to make sure that he has a full scholarship and what what we were recruiting. He would've punter. He could've punted at any major football school in the country and possibly had a pro career as a punter, but he also was a quarterback. And can you imagine you know, playing with a with a one one hand, but he was a very, very good quarterback. They ran anything that you'd want to run through ball. No, of course, a great arm that he had and also by remember they ran into some little bit of option to, but but he was very, very talented quarterback, and I just felt that he would be a tremendous asset to our team and when thought for a while read and I thought that are deal would be good enough to get him to come to western Michigan, but but he came to Michigan and and as I say, you made a tremendous decision made a tremendous choice and so happy for his creek. But the one thing that I'm most disappointed with Jim Abbott is. He pitches no hitter the New York Yankees and fantastic accomplishments in itself. But it happened to be against my beloved Cleveland Indians. So so my heart is a little heavy that the the Indians gave up the no hitter no hitter, but it couldn't have been to a to a greater competitor. Jim Abbott, he was a heck of a high school athlete of Flint central. And according to urban legend, he never fumbled in practice or in a game at the quarterback position, which is an accomplishment in itself, and obviously saw great accolades when he went on to play college at pro baseball team USA at the Olympics, and so many other things so. And I know that he and Jim are looking forward to being water polo dad's together. You get to be a water polo grandfather with them at the fool. So that's exciting times ahead with the Harbaugh Abbott families getting together. We're looking forward to it and then so good to know that that daughter will be teammates on the water polo team. All right. Jack, enjoy the rest of your time in Baltimore. Safe travels back. We'll see back here. Inside Lahore next week. Okay, thank.

Can't do that and a lot of things. What about you? Jim, then champion field hockey, women's team. That's right. We're blessed to miss Ohio State overtime. Pretty cool. You really keep your obviously your daughter with the volleyball team, but you really keep tabs on what's going on here in Ann Arbor. Don't you? Well, you know, it's so interconnected. You know, my Matty plays, you know, one of her best friends is on the field hockey team and you know, so they're always shooting out tweet and different things, you know, congratulating each other. So it's so easy to keep up with all the things that they're doing the baseball program. Obviously, you know, all the studies, it's awesome. I, I love the school. I love the affiliation and coming back to in Arbor, so great. It was a good weekend. You know, really enjoyed that coach to go back there up in east Lansing and probably hard to appreciate how many people are following along and how much it means to so many people. We appreciate it. We know there are a lot of people that support us and care for us. And you know, as you said, we're all interconnected all the for all the. Same. We all have each other's backs and you know for the greatness of Michigan, and we got so much to be proud for here. There's so so many good people that lead the Atlantic department lead the university. And yeah, just really happy to pour our heart and soul into what we do in football and and it's so appreciated by everybody. We couldn't have it any better. So Jim Abbott, I have a question for you. So if you had a chance to address, they just brought the team together the baseball team for the first time they played some fall ball games including a trip down to Kentucky. If you had a chance to talk to some of the young players, the young pitchers that are just about to embark on their career. What kind of veteran advice could you give the young baseball players that are about to come through the wilpon complex for the first time? Well, you know, the greatest lesson I took away from my playing days is obviously the preparation and hard work that it takes. You know you, you're blessed at Michigan to have the kind of the coaching that where you can have the development that coach Harbaugh talking about there. But then it comes down to trust. You know, believe that you are there believe that you've earned your way to that position and trust the preparation, trust the hard work and stand on that mound. So many times it's just, you know, looking into that catcher's mitt and that belief in that conviction that you have what it takes to succeed in this moment and and they, you're at the university of Michigan for a reason you're wearing that jersey for a reason trust it believe it don't hold back and let it go and then put each and every bit of yourself that you Kennedy each and every bitch. And and that's where you know, you find that life, you find that movement, you find that velocity. It comes from that trust and that conviction. And as everybody knows the second, you hold back or you hope something works, you're going to get the, you know, call upon that hardware call upon that preparation, let it go go. I know you've got a great boche and Beckley story. You and big Johnny. We're catching up before we got the got rolling here on the podcast.

"I was actually a catcher but being the pitcher to be the star, but you've got a guy on the session. Let's talk about. So take us back to that in Ninety-three your pitcher for the income you you play for two of the most storied programs you played in a Michigan uniform. You played in a Yankee uniform and you got the throw a no hitter, and you played for team USA for that matter. And we'll get to that in a moment, but take us at the mount when you pitched that game against the Indians and you were Mr. perfection it, it was just amazing Saturday day game. I'm so proud of that game because I had pitched against the Indians five days before in Cleveland, and I was terrible. I didn't make it onto the third inning. You know what I got. I got pulled out of the game. It was. It was awful outing. And so five days later had to bounce back and go up against the exact tame team and had a good hitting squad, Kenny Lofton, Albert bell, Manny Ramirez, Jim Thome, e. And so it was all about finding that trust again, you know, with the backdrop of adversity and and struggle the last time out. Out at. And so it was a fight from the very beginning walking on that mound, looking for the strike zone, trying to be aggressive and trusted and believe it, and and just started rolling. And there's no place like Yankee Stadium. You know, the fans are right there with you as they got excited as the out started counting down that ninth-inning you know, three outs to go and just the Rupp from the fans that connection with my teammates and the celebration afterwards, you know, I love it so much cherished that day, and I love it especially because of the backdrop of having struggled the previous time out to go out there. It's like a bullet going, three hundred. There are certain things that most people can't put them into their minds into because they haven't gone through it. You can't even compare and the no hitters got to be at the top of the list of the things that as Jim, you said you you dream about these kind of things. I let the bull of three hundred one time, but that the mind of being in that zone where everybody is getting out. That raise your focus to not get sidetracked to have any little thing that can distract you and take you off the task at hand? Yeah, the I mean, I got the throw at first pitch, Jim once for the cubs and once for the Tigers and I took the mound in cleats in like warm up at everything. Our dream would be just being a big league mound, you know, but now to throw a no hitter in pretty Yankees, and now you're talking about with give me some of the nave. So let's go down Larsen and what he would have done that prime more wanted him. Does Jay knows them all? Oh, shoot, I think will the last one before mine was Dave Righetti. The Red Sox and really cool outing and he was really the next day. I came to the ballpark and he they were Getty called me from where he was just to congratulate with. I was really classy move and David wills. I think pitswon David Cone light couldn't. So yeah, the connection with the Yankee Stadium in the city of New York and the and the Yankee organization is you're right? You're right. Jim, stepping on a major league mound, you know, it's pristine you. You've seen it before. The game starts. The bound is perfectly manicured the pitching rubbers, you know, it's set up for you there. There's no excuses. It's it's the, you know, game on and all this great baseball talk really coach.

"One of the great student athletes in the history of the university of Michigan actually played here in Arbor at the same time as coach Harbaugh. So they're, they overlap for a bunch of years. So we have Jim, Abba, Jim Harbaugh the star pitcher, star quarterback. I mean, we're not on the same level. Jim Abbott was was the big man on campus. I. I remember a couple few interactions with Jim. Member. One time I I've met him was right out in front of the blue front. Jim will remember this, but he was he was walking by and we were probably juniors at the time and Cam, you know, I went up to him and like. Starstruck like a fan, you know, and. But he was he was really, he was really, he was a much bigger. He was much he was head and shoulders above anywhere that I was. Thanks coach. I appreciate that. I, I have great memories of seeing you around campus, and I would argue that you're the big man on campus. They're hanging out with our friend. John colas are and, and it was great days I, it was wonderful to be at school and so proud to have this affiliation who's the first time you've got you. You're in your Sports Illustrated guy from like in your youth. I mean, everybody knew about about Jim Abbott. When you got the school here and boy, he did great things and you career no hitter against the Cleveland Indians. All I wanted to make a trip was India, right? That's right. Yankee Stadium, Cleveland Indians in what I was told, obviously I wasn't there, but it was a Saturday day game. And I was told later on that that they at the football game that day at the big house, they announced it and said, ladies and gentlemen, Jim Abbas pitched a no hitter for the New York gang. Today. And apparently there was a pretty pretty nice ovation that that that one of the highlights I wish I could've seen that or had some sort of recording of that because that that was really cool that it got transmitted back then Arbor and that people connected with wow. This should be. It should be a transmission that somewhere that we wouldn't, that be something that's that'll be good. My first game is a student at Michigan stadium. I wish you remember that part of it. I don't remember. I don't have a lot of members the early season, the early games in my student student time here in Ann Arbor, a little busy, not working so fun. I bet. I bet you've had that dream. I bet you've had the dream. Jim horrible has pitched a no hitter for the New York. I've had that dream.

And they were, did you get a ball or somebody gave you a ball? I did at the end of the game. I for all those fathers out there in grandfathers, what you wanna do the games ending nowhere. The umpires make their entrance and where they leave the field. And at the end of the game as game is ending, find your way down to where the tires are going into their unplanned and they always have the extra falls. They don't see don't use. One or two or three balls that they have that are in there little bag to take carry. And then you tell them that you've got a little grandson at home. That's three years old and he'd love baseball and they'll kill give it to you. And I think that's what Scott, it's got name we're on and I, I didn't give it to any of the grandkids. I kept it for myself. Jack, Jack, that is genius. Jack, that is unbelievable. I've never thought of that. I've never gotten a ball at a baseball game.

"Of the coaching staff and the way they played. But the thing that I was most proud I think of is the patients that the coaching staff on offense in their play calling. Sometimes the fans get a little frustrated maybe with was with runs into continue to run a play, but it's the patience to continue to do that that breaks down at defense, and you aren't necessarily trying to win the game in the first quarter. You're not trying to win the game in the second quarter. You really not even trying to win the game in the third quarter in a game where you're evenly matched what you're doing, you're wearing down that defense, you're wearing down that defense. And I think in the last two weeks versus Wisconsin and Michigan state, you saw the result of that in this game. Michigan state defense was in the same position that was constant defense was in in the fourth quarter. They had run out of gas and we had pretty much our way in the fourth quarter we were able to sustain drives. We were able to keep our events off the field. And I, I. Applaud our offense, staff and Jim for displaying that kind of patience. Well, thanks. That's a testament to the to. The players in in the coaches will take that compliment. I, I know they will. It's been great to see our offensive line establish in that line of scrimmage and improving every single week. And probably when you can run to belly plays at the end of the game where you had to dive plays that that knock out a first down and allow you to kneel on the ball at the end of the game. That's that's a testament to that what they're doing up front and how hard the Baxter running. How exciting to watch. And again, it said idea did first quarter you run a, you run it basically in the back, they blocked a play for two yards and your back finds a way to get three yards. And then in the second quarter block of play for three hours and pretty soon you're knocking out four and five yards. And at the end of the ball game, you're pretty much have your way, but it's backs extending to play from how many yards that it's black floor up front and then adding two or three or four more yards on that. And eventually the long play. And I think we're really our backs are are buying into that philosophy and we're seeing each and every week back to work back to work. They go back to work for the football program before coach gets back to work. We're gonna have Jim Abbott coming up in a little bit on the podcast, but Jack, you have a you have a story for your son today. So let's jump right in Riley cream after the ballgame call, and he was, he was so excited about the win, but he was even more excited to tell me the story. And the pitching coach down at Georgia was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Eastern Michigan in in professional ball. Then he came back and he coached at the university of Michigan, has a pitching coach for about four or five years until he went down to Georgia. Two years ago is pitching coach and he's a great Michigan wolverine football fan. He told Riley, this great story. He said it was about three years ago that he was the pitching coach at the university of Michigan. It was in March was kind of a cold day and they were playing a playing a game in about the sixth or seventh inning. He called down to the bullpen and told them to get relief pitcher up and getting thrown. So he got up and he threw and he threw and they get out of the inning and they didn't have to call him into the game. So he called down and told a relief pitcher to sit down, they weren't going to, they weren't going to need him. So he sits the oats sits in the dugout and he kinda peeks out and he's the guy throwing again, he told that guy to sit down. So he picks up the phone and it caused down to the bullpen. And he said, I told you to sit down, it's a cold day. You can't be getting up and sitting down getting up and sit down, sit down and he said, well, coach, you don't understand..

"I promise is the defensive backs coach, you must really enjoy watching those guys get off the field over twelve on third down throwing the over one on fourth down of thirteen opportunities to get off the field. The defensive backs shutting down Michigan state's receivers, all game long. So as defensive backs coach, you probably pay attention to what long and Watson and hill, and those guys are doing and they'd had a terrific ballgame. We have such great young young people that put at a great shout out to Mike origin and Chris Partridge and nadeau knows working into the second year. Had he been a secondary coach? We were ninety five percent zone and five percent man to me and and I know how difficult it is to teach. And I know how difficult and how athletic you have to be order, play man to man coverage and into watch the way our young people reformed in the secondary. My hat is off to coaches and players for tremendous scheme and for tremendous coaching and execution, you guys are really fast on defense. You don't sacrifice strength at all. You guys bring. It's a combination of the scheme that Brown brings the athletes. You have been Herbert's, obviously got your guys that much bigger and stronger, but it's amazing to see that the speed and the ferocity, which your guys play on defense and really violent would be another word to. It's guys like Brian. Monet thought Brian had his his best game, and then Aubrey. Solomon really play in the full game and played it a winning level and great to see him do some things. I mean, I don't think there's anybody that can hit the sled, like Aubrey Solomon can on our entire roster and to see him out there in the games doing that to see that you know that the jump that that he's made. And I'm so glad dad talked about the Mike Zordich and Chris Partridge, and you know what a great job they do and Greg Maddison does and quick pay, you know, getting, you know him on the scene right now has been huge. I mean, he made several several big plays in the game, a Josu shea, the speed and power that he's coming off, the edge with it means just, you know, it just bodes well for our team and those two guys, really, I mean doing such a such a fabulous job in the run game in the past game. Just one point. I wanted to make it in playing the Don Brown scheme in the set. Secondary man to man, no press coverage. Everybody's up in everyone's krill, and and you know you, you're able to get a Chuck coming off the ball and then and reroute them, but the, the lost ingredient. And all of that is that you're lying backers have to be able to run and they have to be able to play man coverage because these offenses know that it's man to man defense, and they ski race to get fastback and an extra receivers. Third, fourth receivers on those linebackers and they have to be very, very talented instilled in man coverage as well as defensive backs. No question and it picks. And Evan a run around picks having choosing angles. I mean, they Devon Bush and my gosh, she thinks he, he can't. He's planted as high a level as you could possibly play. And then he, he turns it a game like he did at Michigan state is fabulous. Texted this gym after the game in the I had so much pride and so proud of..
