"Was the athletic director at vanderbilt candice story lee when she issued a public statement which we shared with you earlier which brought this to light for. The first time. Clinton had tweeted something. But there's a big difference between a reporter tweeting something in the athletic director of the university in question making a public statement so i. I don't know the answer to this. But i'm assuming is not a very very good thing. I have spoken to john cone of mississippi state and the statement that kansas issued is this. I am deeply troubled that some of our student athlete. Parents were subjected to racist slurs. During last night's game this is. This is absolutely unacceptable and disgraceful behavior and such hateful. Language has no place anywhere in our society to the family members who were impacted. Please know that you have my full support. So i was taught as a young journalist never to to make assumptions. Let me finish with john cone statement. We joined vanderbilt in declaring such behaviour unacceptable and indirect conflict with evaluating both institutions and our fan base. The college world series serves as a celebration of the entire sport of college. Baseball highly inappropriate advancements must neither be tolerated allowed to detract from the on the field accomplishments of the student athletes and their teams who have earned the right to participate on this national stage.

"Presidents. nfl coaches conference commissioners bob nc double a. executives taking six and seven figure salaries which i think what katie was talking about. How like imagine if you're working minimum wage and then the coaches were bringing in millions. You feel unfair. Which is a great point by her colleges build lavish new facilities correct. The players do benefit from them. But the student athletes generate the revenues. Many of whom are african americans from lower income backgrounds and up with little or nothing now. That's one hundred percent true. And i've heard it before and i think it's something that isn't that far off that there is like a societal economic impact to it. There's sometimes people who like compared to really awful things in the past. I disagree with that because there's a lot of players that go to these campuses are treated like. Oh it's like we're not comparing. I is worse from kitty. Screenshot from the case. And you can see at the end that they. They cited their sources. Remember having a site source in. I should have cited my source with parse ohio state. But for this like one summer program had to go to a database of football players and always linked to be all. But i think most people working world have won so many of our guys. I could not find on lincoln or they had like very much like labor intensive jobs that will not be bringing in the money that now players. Who have the ability to make you for people. Who pecan college. This is so important for sure. Report trevor lawrence. He's fine justin feels. He's fine he does not need this money people peak. What about what. If trevor lawrence had a life altering injury. Nfl for short. What what happens to all that. We'll save your player and you go to a big university and play on a sports team there if you play your car after college you should like like you have a network outside of college. That's massive you. Will you have two huge. You have to be a man. I would say there's players that just like mac like like like football players for jobs. I'm saying i see what you mean. I thought she meant like if you're just there you should end up. I know for sure like jobs for like even just radio personalities personality walk into a company and say hey saying student. Athletes are love by because you have the word. There's people who like. I like them football players. Then i went to school with. They got massive great internships overplay students people seen as you know you put your body on the line for the school and that is the thing that's again college football it is. It's the most loyal of all sports. Because it's the only time you can really truly choose where you wanna play. Katie what else you got anything other quotes and then more of news if you want to move on from this suivant we we. We pretended to be for long enough. I think yeah. Let us all your opinions tweet at us. Yeah you watch. I don't have the password. So don't fucking yell at me. I say this in college and stuff is fascinating. I'll drown but su it's so fascinating moving. Oh speaking of yeah. We've got now. I mean these pictures are so sick. I what is it. What is it about all these pictures. That we're looking at a picture of Some oklahoma players know recruits. I mean in front of a really nice bentley in a very nice sports car and also on the football field he i don't it's the same thing with the The arch manning photo from last week's episode. I don't know what it is. Maybe it's just cameras just got these photos fucking sick to me like i know. I'm supposed to be freaking out that there's nice cars on the field. I don't care what so ever I think these pictures just look really cool. No no I saw a like to some random account. Go viral for saying like these are some of the coldest recruiting photos i've ever seen and what is it. Why are they all say. Oh mr number one. Whoever was probably a four or five star like hopefully get your your professional photos because it looks like that one was taken on your iphone. The guy on the right looks like he's taking g. So i wanna point out and i know that it's probably just because of the reflection. Their visors look sick. Yeah i think those are illegal. Ar legal visors does illegal visors talked about it last week. I think about talking about unfortunate that they can't take it off without. Because i get it if you have a head neck injury you don't wanna touch anything so i'm really going hate me but i really have to go to the bathroom. I don't hate you. Keep going on a good streak streak will just keep going. You have probably we. Should we come back for that. one comeback. Well as poss- okay. I'm back from the bathroom. Fun proud of you. Buddy. thanks katie. Yeah it was. I really had to go So we tweeted this from our counts. Very sad i'm not sure how he passed away. But robert cacao la who's like always would go kinda like in college football twitter world's viral always for his hawaiian shirts. I think he's wearing one right there on the left with. That's the rock because the rock is samoan and i. He was for those. Who don't know us. The whole hawaiian color commentator. He also worked on the hawaii local news channel. He pass away. This is really unfortunate for hawaii football in general because this is the second of the offseason which when you think of hawaii football you think of cold brennan you think of like a bunch of other players but also then you think of a robert cacao cacao so i mean..

"So it does open up a door for some of these problems but the fact that the supreme court of the united states told the incidental ada fuck themselves is huge. Because now it's saying okay. This is a business they are. They should not be unpaid workers with the amount of money that comes in especially with football and basketball but across the board and if they wanna make money off their likenesses let them do it and also people who's like oh they're not paid the at scholarships stipends they get food they get this like imagine making minimum wage and the boss above us making millions and millions and millions. Yes sure you are making money but a portion. Leave the work. You're doing the money the company has you're making next to nothing so yes. They are paid a portion louis so far under they also can't get another job. I think it's like as an athlete. You were not allowed to go work as serving tables or as a bartender right. I was like. I had to work two jobs in order to pay my bills and college and that was fine. Athletes aren't allowed to do that now. This ruling is going to help push that forward to where it's just more it. You're sitting at home right now. And you're like oh well. They don't deserve it like they are billions and billions of dollars that come in every single year because of the prog there. We're watching on the field and you look at cova as a massive example. How much money was made off of that season. This is huge for college sports in it hugely bad for the way. We put a tweet asking for people who are against this to say why and one little responses. I'm sorry. I forgot who you often. My head was like like they're let them stay in college. They're going to want to move on so much quicker if someone wants to go to the pro and not say college let them. This is not about being selfish. The players should be selfish like us a fan like they are not here for you. They are here to further their careers to help. Increase their draft stock. Like that is. It is always a weird argument to me when it's people like they're gonna wanna leave early and that's the kind of the case with any job it's like if you can make money at a different level like is not what you do it for like you think that. These kids are playing college football than they're just getting. I mean there are obviously people out there that want to play college football and then go on to the real world but then you look at someone like ryan tannehill who thought he was going to be a brain surgeon and ended up being good enough to play in the nfl. Like if you can continue to play. I would assume most people do want to continue to play. Yeah look when sam. How does not come back for senior year. Yes i wish he came back. Yeah you know what he needs to go the nfl. He's a talent to do that and he should do that. The his career schliemann remember lawrence would come back else. Like look at the industry like look at the players who peaked in college. Who don't have the opportunities like if you know unc. Basketball joel. Berry and theo pinson. They're the biggest two names at the time when they won the natty. And now i think deals playing overseas and joel berry's and like the g. league. They're not making money their careers peaked in college. So it's not just don't get paid and college. There are plenty of players and football and basketball who they peak in college and then all that potential is wasted. I feel like. I mean if anybody does disagree with us i would love for like an actual like well written out reason why you disagree with the supreme court on this one and i know you did see some where people were trying to make. Political and biden wasn't in favor of this. Like i don't care about any of that i do not care about politics behind it. What i care about is that i think that this is. This is a massive door opening. You saw a lot of professional athletes tweeting about it. You saw a lot of agents tweeting about it and it is business like if you don't think that college sports are a business at this point. You're just absolute morons. So huge news coming out of the nc double a. And that's i mean we all hate the that's not so look the boots of the universities and whatnot but like it's not they. They do provide things for their students. Athletes i'm not against the universities. I'm against what the nc double a. is trying to do. I will say in the ncwa not to like completely defend them but like they do set up infrastructure and like there there has benefits. I benefited from the system. One hundred and i wrote in college. I would not have gotten to you and see if i did not. I got hearing. I got like. I got every in the book and i one hundred percent benefit. And i'm happy for that when i say fuck the ncaa. I'm looking at the basketball players and football players. Who as much as they do get proportionally. They'd benefit so the university universities so much more than they receive there will be there will be. There will be sports. Now that will be caught for sure We already see it and like lower tier sports. Don't make money will be cut unfortunately I think some of the money that come from external purposes though well so if you look at the women's rowing yeah That's usually exists in big football now. The title nine as i'm sure you know now obviously if the program and said now has to start paying people they have to. I have it up. I was about to read somebody. Michael michael just finished my point. The unfortunately i think if you just look at the numbers like in terms of money that would come from. I don't know how exactly how title nine will continue to like it's like it's a mix of equal opportunities and proportionate funding like if you look men's across they need more gear. Women's lacrosse needs less clear across will probably end up getting over women's across lakes like the the schools are allowed to spend more money across. They need the same level quote unquote of equipment. It's a lot of fine lines. There's there's so many fine lines with all of this. And i think that's why anytime you have this argument no matter what side of it. You're on there isn't a true solid answer. I mean. I feel like. I've been having this debate literally my entire life. I wrote my thesis paper my senior year of college on this. I believe that players should be compensated for in some form or fashion. Now that we actually have something in place with it. There's going to be people that still don't agree with it but at the end of the day no matter what. The fine lines are no matter. What the details are like. Supreme court has spoken that the nc double a..

Yeah sounds less waste to less. There is no waste less. I obviously if you waste the food. You're an idiot but there is no waste if you cook correct way and if not leftovers but also sounds like they portion control everything they do and so they have a really cool thing where you can go pick your menu and you can portion control. It's where if you need to people if you need four people. How many meals a week that you want and you get to pick it out. So it's not like hellofresh is like oh this week. I think you need this for to eat. You can go onto the app the week before. Pick out of a variety of easy delicious. For i mean i. I honestly don't understand why people don't use this. I really don't it's the easiest fucking thing in the world and especially for somebody like myself who is in a great cooker and isn't a great shopper They make it so easy. Because you'll be someone will send you make this food and then there's all these directions with you have to get this that and then you don't know which one the get there's ones with. Different names. different brands. What do i get to get this much of that much. What's the tablespoon or teaspoon all that for you they make it so easy and that's the biggest benefit from it. And now i do know because i read the ad right before the show we are. We do have a little bit of a special for anyone than we do. Have a special. And i mean when i say that i use every single week. I've been doing this for months now. But the special is is huge. So if you go to hellofresh dot com slash walker. Fourteen any user code walker fourteen. You get fourteen free meals. Plus free shipping. Ooh fourteen free meals is a lot of free meals folks especially these days prices. Are ray rice backup. Everybody's going back out to eat. Hellofresh actually did some mouth for us on here. Says it's twenty eight percent cheaper than just shopping at your local grocery store. Seventy two percent cheaper than just going to a restaurant and you're not sacrificing the quality. That's crazy a lot of twenty eight percent. It's a lot more twenty eight percent more. Yes and on top of that like so. I'm not a messy cooker. I'm actually ocd. So i like to clean up as i go but my sister super messy cooker fantastic chef but messy cooker.

You can do carb free options. You can do kito options. You can do it all and so i've been doing recently. Been making sloppy joes again. I i was on a sloppy jocic over the winter. And then i was like no. I probably shouldn't be eating sloppy joes over the summer and i decided fuck it. They're so good that that's just what i've been ordering from alex. That's huge sloppy joes. It's an amazement classic. It's a classic but you can do sake. You can do unlimited fresh dot com and you'll see the option yes and walker fourteen fourteen and you may want to try something new. You could try one of those free meals with something it's free. I mean they're fourteen free meals. Why would you not do it. Katie why would you not do it. There's no reason not to so let's get to some actual college football news after the first half of this podcast which is drama and brandon and our legs. Let's talk about something serious but this is a massive walk drum. Yes low well especially at borscht. Content drawn pro petty. Do the whole thing but if this was just a normal normal week we wouldn't just go straight into some serious news but this is one of the biggest things that's happened in college football re and really like just like decades so if if you somehow missing it if you live under a rock or you're not on social media The supreme court voted unanimously nine zero against the nc double a. In the shaun allston case so basically. Now they're saying d one football and basketball players can start to profit off their names images and likeness. I think but that was like the mayor and as a woman katie. You also were d. One athlete like we can say this. I title nine is extremely important. But when you also look at the revenue. That's coming in from certain sports like you do have to pay. I will say though. Some of the most valuable members of the nc double a. and social media are female absolutely but like page backers. There's that olivia don who is. Lsu tiktok don't a donors all right like there's unlimited and i think the one of the biggest things about just like in general Female athletes will benefit almost more from the nightmare. Because like oftentimes. I mean like if you look at like page sporadic. When she played college would have been able to do to make money off of that. Who's the who was the girl who played for notre dame that drake loved. Skylar diggins allergies. He's like skylar diggins smith now but a magic she could have like like. There's there's like random girls that play like how softball that have like. Three hundred thousand followers on tiktok. They should be allowed in absolutely. That's because girls often used social media better than guys just because they get it especially on tiktok you'll see it and you can always because people love like. Oh it's because guys love girls now. It's it's because they just do stuff better on tiktok and they'll benefit from it. So i would say that that's something i said. From the gecko that people like page backers. People scholar diggings sedona price. They will be the ultimate winners here. And every and i'm not saying that just football and basketball players should make money by any stretch of the imagination but what. This.

"I can't even say it but this shirt. He said he sent me a ton of them. I love him. I saw this shit today. Katie pointed out to me. And i thought this was old. So if you're on youtube you can see this but if you're listening alves crusoe was booked on june twenty second twenty twenty one which i believe is today. Correct think yesterday yesterday. I don't know what the fucking data's because he had less than two ounces of marijuana and drug paraphernalia now. I went through and looked at all the details. What looks like happened is the the very small airport in college station is called. Easter would tiny. It's like i mean it's a little bit bigger than the one in starkville. But i mean it's not that much bigger. I guess he was trying to go through security with us. now. I understand in the state of texas. They have not legalized marijuana. If you don't know about weed less than two ounces of weed is basically like having a little bit of dirt like that is nothing. And i have this is this is embarrassing for texas am. This is embarrassing. You grow up. Texas grow up. No yeah a gorilla. it's law but also arrested him for it like that's the thing is like give him a ticket or something like you can smoke weed literally on the streets of new york right now like no one cares. And you're going to arrest a world champion for less than two ounces of marijuana. That's even see arrested like tyler hands bro like you can't do. What if tyler bro was good in the nba. The shit when he was here. But although yeah i i mean i agree with you. I stand with alex crusoe. Yeah what are we doing here. I mean i think he probably just paid the three thousand dollar cash fine and twelve hundred dollar cash fine for two hundred dollars in left but it. It's are no that's on. That's his bond so he may have to appear in court which would be really ridiculous for by by the texas university. Police not even the college station. Pd we're talking about the university police. It's like this man who like i. His dad's a legend at am. He's a legend like lesson trousers. I understand it's against the law but half the states in the in the country right now on just smoke it wherever you want also saying like i mean i'm sure they looked other ways multiple times for and there's one we're thinking of right now that they looked. There's no snitch elsewhere. Say anything but like the. It's not like he had like a pound of marijuana right. It's like the whole like intent to sell and all that it's less than two ounces. No he didn't even have to soldiers possession right he just one back in the wasn't i can't even begin to say how ridiculous i think. This is an yes i understand. We talk about this all the time. It is a law in certain places. But now we're getting to the point where it's like some some places. It's decriminalized some places. It's just straight up some places it's it's medicinal. You can't arrest a player like that. Who has been done such a good thing for the school and it'd be the university police you just can't do. Just give them a ticket and let them walk or am i am. I even just be like. Hey michael just put back in your bag. And then like he was at the airport right so was it. Tsa that is not the only wrinkle england. That's because i will say and this is a true story. And i thought about this when i was reading it i remember going through. Tsa easter would and a girl in front of me had a grinder with her and she to say it was cigarettes. And they're like man. This is not a cigarette. I would just be possession of drug paraphernalia. But why would the police be the one who arrested him wouldn't be like the tsa versus arrested. Maybe also he's six five one ninety. He needs to bulk up He's fine i think. That's probably estimation that still. It's probably what his driver's license that at am i am. I know i understand. Has their has their their thought process about this but at least i don't know if the two of you i stand without screws and that's why we have the shirt on this tape talking about tsa and tsa and they're basketball players in getting caught with wheat. The one i always think of is anthony. He was he had a he was going through airport security and he had something in his suitcase and it was going to be. This was like probably two thousand five so he was going to be seriously in trouble. And i think what happened was he just had one of his friends take the know. That's my friends suitcase. And then that guy went to jail so so you're big conspiracy theory guy. Jackie notice what would you say would have happened. If he was still on a adams basketball. Why would i would think that. That's the thing that if he was a player on no chance to gets arrested. I think they're like maybe they tell the coach. Hey like this is what's happening like you would have a chance to happen like three or four times. The finally ball player they'd be like d need anymore. You got some more in the back anyways like this is just a random story. I didn't plan on getting it getting too early. In the episode. Jack led me into it about acting up at an airport. We stand with you. Alex cruiser and thank you for all the shirts. They are sick I i mean you've seen by pennywise. yeah i know. I'm just saying he sent. He sent you a whole box. He's i also really like him. I think he's a really underrated basketball player in general and it seems like that's the weird thing that he's not like. Oh this is a partier that like it's like this is a sad story like it's his final. One of his final arrests was that no this is a stand up guy who probably still supports sustain. I'm caruso family is legendary in texas history. And they are like. I would think even his father if he's still alive is yeah. He would be like he'd be like what are we doing here. Alex was like dita who my. Data's no bro. I play basketball legal. What are we doing again like i. Every time i go on the we'd ran about the. Nfl just irritates me. It's like don't we have bigger things we need to worry about. But alex oh fuck you. Easter would fuck you. I just i can't i can't even believe it. I get it because it's like those are very very conservative. And i would say this honest about oh brain and i would say this about any by the way oh is calling all right jack so brennan walkers at the college world series right see is he's i mean we all know that he's told everybody about it. Yeah who doesn't know that but one of the things that men have to do sometimes in bed is think about baseball. Yes they wanna last longer. So brown and walker when he gets home to see mrs walker he might have to think about the college world series in order to last longer. Yes and sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do and you wanna be a team player and when you want to be a team player you have to think about random things like baseball or maybe you're like your elementary school principal or some was katie..

"Give. Especially dave dave a bad pick and you are standing by brain walkers been there. He used the g word a few years ago. That's bad so a few ago in day was in the office. They brought mencia on the rundown and dangerous essentially said he'll never watch college baseball again. He was like fuck this sport. I'm not ever watching it again. You screwed me and mincy owned it. And somehow that spun into the fact that been men's has been like the fade fade fade guy. You're supposed to fade his picks or we're supposed to fade him but brandon walker in his glory weasel his way in to this college baseball content and has been living the dream in omaha to the point where he's like doing news appearances as if he's been following mississippi state baseball his entire life and honestly. It doesn't shock me at all because brandon figures his way into everything that he does also like. We're pro petty podcast respect to move. You have to respect the move dc. Mincy was trying to grow the game now. Brandon is growing the game jack. I know you have thoughts on. Yeah i know that. I talk about that and you know this a lot casey because texas has like very passionate baseball fan base. I will say that if you love college baseball. Yeah like you are obsessed with it. Like i just happen to not be intuit. News watch but like college. Baseball fans are nuts. And i will say it's very like if you are big in the college football and you're listening to offseason college football podcast you. You most likely support a school. That has a pretty good baseball team. Because if you think except for maybe big ten schools for the most part but like sec sec thing the care about it so there's a lot of these big twelve loves. I would sign big tall. Well there's a big crossover between College football and college baseball fans. Obviously it's a college sport. But i would save more so than even basketball. I would say the south. That's almost cares. More about except for kentucky of course Their baseball team sometimes more than their basketball. I feel like if you're a basketball school. And that is what you're known for your kentucky duke. You're kansas and yes. It is always college basketball. But i i do see kind of a crossover. I went to to some am baseball games. When i was there i was. I was friends with rob childress wife just through our cancer journeys together so i would go but i i. I went to omaha in two thousand eleven when am was there just because my guy friends were going. I was like all right road trip. It's college like we'll go but i don't. I am was in the world series right now unless i was sent for content. I wouldn't go. I'd be watching every single night. And if they won. Don't get me wrong. I would be ringing the bell as if i gave a shit my entire life. But what's happening brandon right now. Is that he. I mean he's really. This is the brain and walker. Look because he didn't care about baseball a few few weeks ago he cares about his school so that he has the game happened. Like you said muncie breaks. The curse and now brandon is hashtag growing the game. I will say. I mean it seemed like he got into the growing. The game thing has kind of a bit and definitely and then it was good for pick central because they were going to go down. It was a whole thing which was great and then he became kind of like a heel of of sorts. He read all those videos of him like outside the stadium saying look at the line like i've grown the game. This month she it was so wrestling. And obviously that makes sense because he's watched thousands upon thousands of hours of wrestling heel wrestlers however Then last night happens and it was like. I was watching the whole game and i was really cheering. Not for mississippi state to lose just for the. I guess i was more. So the no hitter than no hitter for virginia because it'd be so funny for them. Nc storyline however last night was with awesome for brand in the podcast. There were so many great clips of him. And i mean didn't brain kiss on the mouth of the forehead hundred. I don't think about intimate intimate. I would make the argument that a forehead kissed more intimate intimate than just a mouse. Obviously if you're talking about like. I say oh lip if you kiss him. What on. Just the lips. Oh like quickly quickly. I think that's less intimate than the forehead. Obviously to salute forehead kisses before it's very intimate romantic. Like i really care about you as a human. Did he really kiss on the whole night club. Okay what hugging. Oh that's cute. Hey hey hey. Let's put this up on the screen back to the head coach. That doesn't count. let's show it's a case going to bring up now if you're listening again if you haven't subscribed to the youtube i don't know what you're doing because the visual aspects now that we are just give just ben laments with his sub fella shirt i mean. Just he's pushing. I will say. I will say mints i mean. Look here's brandon mincy. I gotta say he. He had the most ironic outcome happened. He really is no his. His goal was the grow the game through him like being like this expert of college baseball and like bringing like entertainment and then look at the game through skiving. Awful awful awful picks not only that jack giving awful picks and then his rival being part of it like the fact that mississippi state who obviously he hates is now getting like to dance all over his grave like that to me is like it just ironically but he is growing the game for barsha like i will say he's all over everybody's content anytime you get dave interested in what you're doing. It's a good thing that he's been talking about mincy for three weeks now which is crazy because they can't figure out how he so bad. Oh no it's like it's it's it's insane and so insane. And i think i think brandon tweeted it last yesterday. It was something along the lines of like mincy the like the world by the balls and he's like didn't planet habit that way and he doesn't know how to like yeah. It's just as you know as we've said brandon is planning on calling in. I don't know it doesn't look like he's calling in right now jack. I'm not really sure. I would think that he would text us. I i was just double checking so.

"Know there's news in the state house as always but Would be wrong in saying that.

"college baseball" Discussed on The Morning Brushback with Dan Blewett
"That's when baseball looks like for the vast majority of teams. It does not look like Lsu it does now. Auburn does not like USC. where it looks like more like a minor league game where they have two thousand fans there. It's not been busy. Baseball is. Even good schools like University of Maryland. which is you know local to here? You go to University of Maryland Games like three hundred people there maybe. and. That's good baseball right so. Like you said if you really really love that restaurant, he should've gone there. Again, that's why I. Don't understand like Okay Bowling Greens, raising a million dollars for what so this two hundred people can go back to the Games. And the. Twenty five players play which they could find a place to play otherwise. Sure somebody else now, somebody. That Division One, but those kids will have places to play. Deadline, and maybe it's the same thing as before. Maybe there's not three hundred division one baseball programs. Maybe there's only. One hundred fifty. Maybe a lot more people go to those games, but also maybe not. I don't know the the economics and just away college. Baseball looks. Is Fundamentally different than like Minor League in Pro Baseball. Yeah and it doesn't have A. This. The cows role series. Itself is popular, but you don't have you. Don't have the you know. The college football like football's popular. One because you believed your team in, too, because it's only it's only Saturdays to set aside one day a week and you get to watch football. You know your team play. And Bass NCWA ball popular because. You know the players on the team. You know the coaches. They've NCAA tournament, which is a whole month long festivities, and for his as wildly popular as the college world series may be when it when it's on the lead up to the cows. Road series isn't even televised the Reno's super. New really only tune in. because. It's an event on ESPN. You don't tune in because you're 'cause. It's like Oh man. Ken States making a run like let's watch. Baseball you, don't you don't watch that nobody nobody follows at. Yeah! Good point by the dude on on Youtube. He's been. He's at a lot of good stuff in the chat today, but. He said even two thousand fans not enough, which is also true, the thing with college baseball remodeling baseball as it scale. It doesn't scale super well like suddenly if you have. Two thousand fans at Games. You need more bathrooms. You need a bigger facility, right? You need like I'm thinking like. In any of our alma mater is suddenly. Two thousand people want to go northern Illinois Games. They've got a remodel the facility it's got. They've got to have what twenty times more staff to handle. All these new things like there's the it just becomes like a public facility. Just like the rules completely changed, and now it's a two million dollar field now you have one hundred thousand dollars payroll now you need a key need all these other people and it becomes. There's not a big. There's not a way to be. And I well I shouldn't say there's not a way because I don't know the in the INS and outs, but it doesn't scale well you have to, and then you gotta have ticket sales to keep that up, so your team has a bad couple years now you're back the only getting a couple of hundred fans a game. Now Baseball team super bankrupt. Yeah, the frequency of baseball makes it very difficult to scale when you're. Professional Baseball you play every single day, so your your banking on either the same two thousand people to dedicate their lives to showing up every day to watch you or you're trying to get within one week fourteen thousand random people to show up your Saudi and you know I, think we're I think we're a lot of baseball's missing the boat. Is Colleges have their own field professional teams their own field. There's all a standalone a standard complexes. Just. The soccer model that I'm familiar with with. The owner of the Chicago dogs is very high in the soccer. shadow dogs fleet of baseball are an independent baseball team Chicago their owner, I talked to him a decent amount. He is big in the soccer world, and with these made with MLS teams do is they have their stadium? And then they surround their stadium with you feels and club teams, and it's like a big soccer community, so if you've. You've got the La Galaxy and or the Chicago fire molested. You've got a community of soccer. There were as the you've got the key northern only baseball team UIC, baseball team, and then you've got literally teams, and then you've got the professional teams in there. It's not a cohesive unit and I. Don't know if it could be and I. Don't know what the model looks like, but in theory it sounds great. To have. legit called this. CHICAGO DOGS INDEPENDENT team surrounded by a couple of youths fields with club team, and it goes all the way down to where you've got like a built in network of not only sans, but maybe a pipeline of players I know doesn't work. Fluid like that for baseball, but you know why aren't college and some of these minor league teams? Some of them do, but why aren't they all teamed up with? One facility to cover costs into I. Don't know it feels like there's a better way to do it than they currently have it set up. Well I mean yeah, but then like okay well in the Chicago area. There's what how many colleges that have baseball teams six thirty forty right? On, you can't have five mini. Baseball fields outside of every college baseball field. They're not. Half a million dollars to build a baseball field. Not. Just like just a high. School Crappy Normal Baseball field. Not all I'm not sure what the model is. I'm just saying like the the soccer model makes sense to me because they're combining everything from the top down and baseball is so spread out like everybody's independence. Everybody's individualized. It just doesn't feel like like..

"Why having the major leaguers taken care of myrlie in the past, anyway like the minor leagues have no rights they never have. Like the mile if the majors care so much, why haven't they bargained or done something for them, so they can make conditions better in the past. I mean I think you. If you're a big Leaguer, bigly, your in your in your player rap for your team. Your urine established guy. You're not a guy that's on the on the cusp of going up and down and at that point. I feel like you're looking out for your own. You know you're looking out for the forty guys at around the major league forty man roster, and then you're gonNA look out for the. Thirty teams, so the twelve hundred players. That are under your union quote, Unquote Union. You look out for your own and minor league. Guys. It's almost like. You know earn your stripes when you get up here. Then you're GONNA get all the benefit of being under our our union and you're going to get all these benefits that we're fighting for. So I think a little bit of it is. They look out for their own and minor leaguers. Don't feel like their own. When there's you know, there's always. When you're in a spring training room, there's always the minor league side. There's the major league side. The guys are in big league spring training camp. and for as many good guys as there are in that locker room that you talked to. There's always a few guys that just will walk right by your. They won't say two words. You. Know whether they're established or not, whether they're high profile or not. Some of those guys feel like you know. Minor Leagues is Little Bit Beneath Them, and that's okay. It needs to be one umbrella. It really needs to be one umbrella because minor leaguers will never have an opportunity to unionize on their own. As far as negotiations getting better pay, it's just not going happen because there are way too many players for the amount of spots available especially now with all these teams going cut, so I don't think. I don't think they're going to ever be able to unionize on their own and cause any kind of a dent in the system, but if the major league players take them under their wing than they have no choice but to. Either make the situation better for the minor league guys or risk a strike between all levels of baseball which that I think it's more on unified between players as opposed to between the players in the front office or the players in organizations I think the major league. The only what has happened majorly guys say enough's enough. They're gonNA. Be Our Union now and we're going to go. She ate the minor leagues. Benefits for all players that come into the system. And I don't know if they're ready to do that because they're having their own issues, just negotiating for themselves as big leaguers. Yeah. Guessing. I don't know. Honestly I I kind of tire of the minor league. Pay Stuff. I don't know why I just like I just don't I don't know I should care more I. Do I just Kinda? Don't like I got through it. And? That's not to say that it like the things I know are I got through it. I didn't complain that much about it It definitely wasn't fair. Conditions should definitely be better. Those are the the four tenants. But I don't feel super strongly about if like, if if guys like getting forty eight grand a season, and if you're not going to be like, Hey, we did it guys like we did it like I don't particularly care. I don't know and that's the major leaguers feel like they got through it, and then the big leagues, and they just don't care and that's fine. It's great that a couple of new care enough to like. Give some money out. Suppliers like David Price Who's now dodger who hasn't pitched a game for the dodgers, right? He's still took care of the dodgers Marlee Gates thousand, bucks for a month. That's that's those are good stories. But as a as a whole major league, baseball players don't care about minor leaguers. have to write like they worked their way to got to get to where they are. They don't necessarily need to care that. These guys come behind him. Who are essentially coming for their jobs right like they're coming to take the jobs that you have so some of them may feel a little threaten mitroff. The world aren't GonNa feel threatened, but the guys that are on the. Bottom of the totem pole. They're gonNA feel a little threatened. By guys coming up and guys have an opportunity to only. Do have it better than they had it in a little bit. For them to get to the big leagues. I just don't see how with the with the supply demand of of professional baseball that you're GONNA have. A situation where the players have leverage, they're just not gonNA have any leverage. You know you want five grand a month. Okay will this kid will play for eight hundred dollars take? This kid doesn't matter how talented you are at this. Well, it does. It does matter how talented. How did your matters a lot? But it? There's a dealer. Jim A. Of Abilities in the minor leagues, but for small for a small percentage of guys, it matters because for the most part. If got twenty five man roster twenty, those guys are not viewed as prospects or potential big leaguers so. The ten, the five guys. You really need the buy in from those guys. Those guys that are you know? Those prospects are already being pampered to. They probably got better bonuses, so they're living fine. They're living in a decent situation. The way the system is set up. It's it's a divide I. Don't I don't know how unify. All those minor-league is because. You know as a guy who did I was sixteen. Th Round draft pick getting get a million dollars. I got twenty five thousand dollars a sign as a junior coming out of college. I'm not on the same level as Manny Machado who got five million dollars and he was the number three overall pick, even though that we were teammates for multiple years like we're just not in the were not wearing the same locker room, but we're not in the same position like he's. He was taken care of he's. He's getting the you know all the extra work all the extra benefits of Pushing him to the big leagues, whereas guys like myself were were in the in the majority of minor leaguers where you're on the team. If you perform well, you might have a chance to break through in. Sneak through that funnel of of players, but for the most part you're there to fill spots, and those spots can be filled with any number of guys with a wide range of skill sets..
"college baseball" Discussed on Scoops with Danny Mac
"Long hours around the clock to best serve our community so the next time. You're in Chinooks. Tell them thanks and that you appreciate them. Let them know how much we appreciate their efforts because we will all get through this together. We always for baseball. There's no doubt about that but this has been a situation. That has a trickle down effect into the collegiate game and amateur sports and Spring Sports in particular in college baseball and the best analyst in baseball in my mind cal Peterson who pitched at Stanford The privilege work with Kyle at ESPN. He is a lead college baseball analyst. He was a top draft choice many years ago and now is calling games for ESPN little league world series multiple different platforms. Calloway's good to visit with you. How are things about Well we're a little bit different world and were a few weeks ago and and I know you and many others are wishing they're calling games today and opening day but We deal with what we can deal with so I at any rate. It's good to talk to you. I'll be at. The circumstances are strange. They certainly are How does this affect the college game? Just a broad brush question. But how does this affect? What's going on with the college game? Well I think the short answer is we don't know yet now. We may know In the next day or two or hopefully by Monday so we're still waiting to hear what? Mlb does with draft if you if you believe in and read the reports that came out today it sounds like they have advanced difficulty as far as what they'll do with the draft this year and next year. The biggest thing from a collegian standpoint isn't even answer there because you've got all these kids they try to determine whether or not everybody gets an extra yoga eligibility is it just the seniors. Nobody but you have to know what the draft process is. GonNa look like before you can. I think. Make a well informed decision on that. So hopefully there's clarity on that next few days from him. Ob as of now. There's a tentative vote scheduled for next Monday to make a decision as to eligibility requirements. Were kids be allowed to transfer or more scholarships? How big are the rosters next year but really all of that is is dependent upon the draft and it sounds like we're closer to get an answer there. Do we have to have a system? In your opinion that funnels may be some of the kids out in a good way is what I mean here too in that the. The fact is at many of these kids. We're going to get drafted and you have an incoming freshman class and it lightens the load a little bit. Do you think that's a fair statement? It's a master student. I mean that's the way the system works right so I mean college baseball lives in in its own world when it comes to to amateur athletics because you know when you look at college football and a coach trying to set his his roster for the fall. You already know which guys aren't going to be there if they if they declare for the draft. They're going same thing for the NBA draft and going to the draft gone. It's not the way it works in baseball. So the way that it's been in the past is the draft happens in June. There's a signing date sometimes in July and then ultimately colleges around the country have from the middle of July until whenever classes. Start to decide exactly. Okay how much scholarship money do I have left? Who signed that? I didn't think it was going to sign vice versa. Who didn't sign that I thought was gonNA sign and let's put everything together. The biggest unknown this year is win. Is that date or is there a day? It sounds like there will be and then. How much flexibility do I have in a one or a two year basis as opposed to what the rules were coming in? So it's just a college baseball different environment in College football and college basketball in dealing with your rosters because there's so much fluidity really until the middle of the summer is to which guys are gonNA show up on campus in which are yeah and it also trickles down to what you think about high school kids to. I mean you think about it if you're a college coach and you're at an se school and you're getting some of the top high school kids in the country will or will they not be drafted. I mean that. That's gotTa fall into this to to give you some clarity moving forward. I would imagine as well. It's massive every year. It is because you by and large you have to assume especially at the top programs that that you're recruiting class when you sign them is going to look different than you recruiting class when they step on campus because ultimately you're gonNA take some chances on some kids then maybe drafted at a point that they're gonNA sign out of High School. If you don't have a draft one of those high school kids do now the top high school kids probably either go junior college or nothing at all and wait for the draft the following year. So you don't have to go to college for three years in order to get to that point but again I mean this is what we're dealing with on a world right now. It's the uncertainty that everybody gets uncomfortable with and if you don't know ultimately okay. Here's the rules. Here's when everybody has signed by. Here's so much roster flexibility you have. Here's how much if any additional scholarship for the next year or two. Okay now we can deal with it but they just need to understand what they're dealing with and to be fair the kids do too and I you know reports are accurate and I've ever reasonably that they are. It's only Clark. Players Association is really fighting for high school and College. Kids right now which is a massive deal because if you didn't have a draft this year and everybody essentially two years of draft goes into one draft next year that's a massive economic difference to a lot of kids. There's no doubt about it When you look at let's say you're a parent of a college kid or a high school kid. That was going to be you know. Let's just say one through five in rounds as you know things can change? If you have a good season or an uptick in your velocity. What do you do if you're a kid right now or are you. Are you sending video to scouts in you? Know guys at run drafts What what do you do right now? What are you hearing? I don't know yet. I mean I think you know. Just based on the fact that everybody is is still involved in social distancing to some extent and and you know it's not like you can go out and have a large scale combine tomorrow but I think the biggest difference now and if had happened even five years ago is just the availability of of data and analytics on a very micro basis. So for instance. I live in Oman. And there's A. There's a guy named here named Tom Oldham here. That runs a a great. I don't know what you want to call. It may facility. I guess but he has rep settle. He has he has he. Has Things that if you have that data in a scout can see it. That's worth a lot more than a kid just thrown on film but I can't exactly see what the numbers are going to tell me and so I think the more of that stuff that is readily available to kids at any age with other in high school or college and that can get disseminated into into the scouting ranks. Then you actually have something you can go back on and compare player. Eighty to be win this year. You really don't have many stats to compare it to so I I think it differentiates this year as opposed to if this had happened five six seven years ago you were doing some of the biggest games in college baseball meaning then biggest players best players guys are going to get drafted and because of that. You're on the the circuit of seeing all the scouts. And I know you're very close to many of them. What's their life like right now. What when you talk to a scout. What are they saying? Well the I was you know. We need to know what we're what we're dealing with. I Know Different Than Than College. Coaches the second is timing. The third is you know how different is it? GonNa look from what it was in the past. I think the absolute is it. Sounds like this year's draft is probably somewhere between five and ten rows with free agents after that next year's draft probably looks different than a normal draft and that may mean the draft moving forward. Look different so you're scouting organizations. You know which you're going to do this anyway. I mean you're GonNa always allocate your resources towards the top end of the draft because ultimately that gives you the best chance for success. But maybe you have to do it more this year and do you have a secondary group that is looking at those kids that don't go into drafted component of it and know that you could have a significant year to sign free agents albeit which from a pro standpoint. This is a benefit organizations but at numbers that I think it'd be very controlled. It's where I think you you'll have a ceiling as far as what you can pay guys from a free agent standpoint that potentially a floor And so it just it. It creates opportunity. I would assume it also creates some uncertainty. Because you're having to make multi million dollar decisions in some cases based on not as much data as you usually have so you know if if you've done a lot of stuff ahead of time and you're comfortable with where you stood just from an information standpoint on March first propaganda puts you a little bit further out front than others. I wonder if Major League Baseball if in win that The restrictions and our country are dropped and if there is a draft that is pushed back. I wonder if they would think about putting some of the top players in showcase game of some sort just to see where we're guys are or if guys are on the fringe in scouts wanted to see them. If they would be available to do that I I I would imagine. That's maybe on the table. What do you think yeah I would think it has to be? I mean whether you take You know you you take a set up like Cape Cod or the north woods or something that already has an infrastructure in place and say you know what landscapes different and literally. We're GONNA take the top two hundred fifty players in the country. Not just those in our draft eligible will or the top two hundred fifty draft eligible players in the country and send them all out there..

"To introduce you in this story with you -ASEBALL walkup music no no no no we don't need that now okay we we might do it to you anyway just warning you okay okay I I met Logan Ice at baseball spring training that's the practice time before baseball season starts you've been with the Indian three APP drafted by the Indians in two thousand sixteen s Logan is twenty four years old he plays catcher and he's built like a catcher he square and muscular picture like a nine volt back story with legs three years ago Logan was playing college baseball he was eligible to be drafted by Major League Baseball team and if you happen to turn on the TV on the night of the draft the baseball experts really liked Logan Logan is they saved one of the best all around catchers in this draft a switch hitting that you're always a tough to find what do you think of Osu's backstop these got savvy I think he's got athleticism and agility behind the plate like this is one of the better college catchers out there on Indians ended up drafting Logan they liked him so much they paid him an eight hundred fifty thousand dollar signing bonus which is a lot of money but if things went well for Logan he could make so much money that that bonus would look like birthday card cash they're big leaguers playing Logan's position right now who make twenty million dollars per year but the way this works new players like Logan don't go straight to Cleveland's main team the one you see on national TV the one where guys are making millions no logan had to go and prove himself he got tossed in with the hundreds of other players playing on the Cleveland Indians feeder teams they're they're minor league teams Logan got sent two teams like the Mahoning Valley scrappers the Lynchburg Hill cats the Akron rubber ducks where the salary is not millions and last year in Africa what was your living situation so I was living on the couch for a little while lived in the hotel for a little while they give you a couple of nights how much you making if you can divulge her give me a range of thinking. Hey I want to say it's around sixteen hundred Aa I think is what it comes out to be something like that that's sixteen hundred dollars a month but only during the season no pay for spring training no pay for the off season so logan salary is just around eight thousand dollars a year not eighty thousand eight thousand six is but that doesn't account for living that doesn't account for shipping your car out that doesn't account for food granted they feed you a couple of meals a day Logan and to some degree all minor leaguers are kind of like living breathing lottery tickets when they pay off and make the majors they pay off huge earn millions and millions of dollars but for the vast majority of minor league players that never happens they toil away in the minor the League's making Bupkus and most do not have a giant signing bonus you see baseball is a winner-take-all career there is a very small chance of making huge amounts of money but more importantly there is a huge chance of making almost no money and as far as logan ice knew those really the only two options but one day a couple of years ago he was at the batting cages practicing and he got this message on Lincoln Lincoln in as like some of those recruiters and stuff that you automated message like yeah like that long do you remember what it said though I could maybe pull it up but see what I got here so he said Hey Logan it's been a minute it's also a small world because I was in the message was from an old baseball friend someone he hadn't seen in a while so there was some small commiserating about a particular minor league assignment Logan and gotten sucks that you got stuck in Mahoning valley last year which that he's one hundred percent right anyways I wanted to reach out because Logan's old friend explained that he was working for this new company that had an idea for how players might be able to deal with this super uncertain take all salary situation his friends message said that this company will quote help baseball players financially by pooling risk and invest listing in each other so logan's reading this and he's thinking this sounds fishy yeah no I I was the first thing I tell them saying hello and welcome to planet money I'm Kenny Malone and I'm Tom Goldman Tom Goldman covers sports for NPR. I should you do and what if this pooling risk thing what if it is a thing what is a completely new way to look at not just baseball but any winter GEICO career today on the show an economic idea that could change the way baseball players and the rest of US think about how we get paid support for NPR comes from Newman's own foundation working to nourish the common good by donating all profits from Newman zone food products to charitable organizations that seek to make the world a better place more information is available at Newman's own foundation dot org should I call you Zach or should I call you Cowabunga or one zero it's much better you wrote on read it that the planet money newsletter is like meaning a noir detective in the parking garage for evidence exchange and incriminating photos can you confirm what's incriminating about the newsletter found some deep dark secret that once did you know how people sign up pure orgy slash planet my newsletter you nailed it all right the company that was sending in messages to try and get in touch with Logan ice is called Pando P. A. N. D. O. and here's a version of the pitch Pando was making to Logan let's actually you're a first round let's make the numbers bigger and more exciting your first round pick as a first round pick you have expected future MLB earnings of forty five million ars grave I'm in I think everyone's excited about the happy about that this is Charlie Olson he's Pandora's co-founder the problem is your odds are like a coin flip you're you're you're outcome is going to be some version of a coin fifty percent of the time you're gonNA average ninety million dollars amazing fifty percent of the time you'll make less than one not amazing not amazing Charlie's point is that even if you're one of the most promising players in the world sure there is a chance you will become one of the richest people in the country there is also a chance your future baseball earnings will be almost nothing you might get injured you might hit up streak of bad luck you might just not be as good as everybody thinks so the companies pitch to players like Logan Ice is this wouldn't it be nice if you and some of your fellow baseball players could somehow share the risk of this brew title winner-take-all career that you've chosen this idea is called an income pool and it's pretty simple like logan just get together with a handful of other players in his shoes so still stuck in the minors still making up kiss and then Logan and these players would make a deal if one of US makes it to the majors and exit big then that person will kick back part of his big money to the rest of us in the pool where baseball can be zero sum when your best friend gets called up and you didn't now of a sudden when your best friend gets called up a little bit of you did panda thinks this income pool idea would work for all kinds of else but the company is just a few years old and starting out with baseball and we spent a ton of time asking Charlie Olson questions about how this would actually work for example is there a level of baseball player that is too low to join pool no there's there's nothing that's too low so what about right now Kenny Malone in studio eligible to be a client of Panos Okay so yes Kenny you have to be in the minor leagues at least but okay so let's just say you and I are interleague irs yes here's how this would work and and we need hundreds of people for our pool it could be as small as just you and me making a deal yeah so then then Tom and I make this agreement and we need to set up the terms of our pool and we could we could set whatever terms we want but there there's a kind of standard contract that baseball players use and to explain it I was GONNA make the big leagues and we're in this pool together here's how this would play out Tom will not have to pay anything until he is earned one point six million dollars playing in the major leagues and once I reached that one point six million level all kick ten percent of the money I make after that back to the pool Pando is gonNA take a ten percent cut of our pool so that's one percent of Tom's additional money essentially that's their business model but but theoretically this is great wait for me like I'm stuck in the minor leagues with my Crappy Minor League salary and it is now subsidized by Tom's giant big league contract and maybe Tom Mix thirty million dollars a year suddenly a millionaire even though I'm in the minor leagues and the contract runs until my career is over or until I paid twenty million dollars into our pool so that's a version of the income pool plan pitched over the phone to our real minor leaguer logan ice shoot now

We were playing baseball in college. It just became something that I. Got a namrd even more when I started coaching in the summer with guys that Woody wanted me to work with he was working with the reds, then and doing some TV come and tainting. And all of a sudden, I said, this this is something I I really like I will never be the head coach. But let's work hard and be the best assistant coach that you can be. And then all of a sudden they offered me the head job after dick took the Yankee job. And I was I was dumbfounded. I was so excited and. As the years went by just I had a real sincere love affair for this university. But because you know, Jeremy everybody, you included, oh, you wanted was an opportunity, and you took advantage of your opportunity. I got an opportunity, and I've tried to take advantage of my petunias anybody that gets to do what they wanna do as a profession there blessed. Individuals and I feel blessed to have been able to work at Florida state for the past forty five years, it's been a remarkable career, remarkable achievements. You know, as we said at the top, you know, when you talk about college baseball. It doesn't have the same. Hold on our imaginations as college football and college basketball, but in the. ACC which Florida state has been a part of for most of the time that you've been the head coach not all the time. What is college baseball mean in that particular conference in that part of the world, you know, it's amazing. How our commodity has become so valuable, and I'm speaking of the college baseball commodity you look at programs that. Do not really have the advantages that the warmer climates schools have. But yet they're making a name for themselves because their administration is giving them opportunities to be successful. Whether it's in the way that they recruit and the administration gives them a good travel budget, and that is something to lure outstanding players there. You look at what John shift did Maryland. And I mean is it's cold up there. Jeremy? Go maybe not a lot of home games before. They. Yeah. I think that's what's helped our game. So much is the administrators are seeing the possibilities of baseball becoming a revenue producing sport. It's always been a revenue producing sport in many institutions. I mean, you talk LSU, Florida, Florida state and owning owning on. You've got very good ways of creating revenue. I mean, we're still in beer at the bow games now and and doing very well in those sales. So there's just. It's just something that. Has been really interesting for me over the last twenty years the way the game has grown you've been a sixteen college World Series. You've been to the postseason every year that you've been on the job. But you haven't won the college World Series yet. I believe twice you've been the runner up. What about this year's this the year? Jeremy were very young. We've gotta get better in many areas, you find out a lot about your club. When you go on the road..

"And now coach you get to say, hey, you know, I know what it's like to go to the college World Series. Yeah. You're selling the the experience that you have and what you bring to that to that future relationship. And yeah, the cultural series is incredible. And and anybody that has gotten lucky enough to go and coaching the cultures would tell you. I think it's everything that that people say it's going to be in in more and the city is such an incredible job of of hosting you. And and I can still remember just you get announced that have opening night. And there's no games that day, and and they everybody walks through and they announce your your team, and and you walk from centerfield down to home plate and sit and they're playing your season over the over the, you know, on the big screen in the stadium there and adopt the moment at which you realize we're one of eighteen that's laughed everybody else's offer, pruning, and and wishing they were here. And we're watching ourselves on the big screen in what we did. And it hits you that that how special it? It is and it's incredible incredible experience. And and something that I hope I want all my players to get a chance to do. And not everybody gets do. That's why it's it's so special. But you know, as you talked to recruits, you're bringing that experience and you're bringing that possibility to them as well. And and that's the alternate in you, you mentioned about the purity of college baseball. That's what it is. It's it's we're playing for that we're playing for that opportunity. And and the joy that you see on your players face when they when they realize what they did, man. It's just it doesn't get better than that. It's just it's so much fun to to see help someone reached the pinnacle and Chiba an incredible during that you can't take away now. And so that's we're trying to every day. We're trying to get back all Mahal. We're trying to give our players and our future players that experience as well. And hopefully, we can do it. If you more times major league baseball is running into a little bit of an issue in marketing, and they have for for quite a few years. They're having trouble mar. Marketing the game to younger players. And for me. The answer is college baseball. If major league baseball had a better and more thorough more thorough relationship with college baseball. I think they have a better time and have more success marketing games younger people not just getting them to play it. But they have done research where if the kid played baseball like up into high school, he's more likely to be a lifelong fan. So I think there's some studies that suggest hey, if you're into the game you're into the game. And then again, college baseball is so unique in that way. Because you watch a major league game. You're gonna see one thing you watch minor league game. See another thing you watch a college game, and it's so much more spirited. And and and again, I was a T mobile park all weekend and one of the coolest things I saw a weekend. And I mentioned this on Twitter on on Sunday is some of the rituals that some of these teams have and they're just they're just sitting around and in Oregon state when you're old foes from the pack twelve has this really cool thing. And I don't know if they did this last year, not I don't remember that. But they certainly do this year where it's forty five. For the game starts game supposed to start at three forty five. It's three ten and they're in the Doug on. They're getting ready in their warming up. And they're all yelling at each other. Why haven't we scored yet? Why haven't we scored it's kind of one of their things and you just like you do not get that in minor league ball in major league ball. And I just think and that's what I meant by. It's the purest form of baseball that's on national television as a national little bit of a national landscape is college baseball. And I think we're we're blowing it as a society as a sport society that wants to see baseball to see we're blowing it by not blowing up college baseball even more than it is. It's so unique you will not see anything like it..

We're all rooting along vicariously here with the seas. How are they? How is phone overall? Yeah. Thanks. Know the third coach in three years the last coats. This guy's pretty good. The first guy was great. He's the guy who recruited Joe. But then he left they had stacked stacked came did terribly under the other manager last year, but they took their time firing a lot of guys left St. they transferred and by the time this guy came in. He he's got a really thin staff, and they're only twenty six players in the game in college thirty five lost a bunch of pitchers. So it's an adventure this year. You know, they don't have much depth on the bench or pitching. But they're, but they're fun group of guys to watch. And and so there anything they do right now. They're over changing, and the fact that they need team Boston College, by the way, where Rocco the Brockie ball go there. Rocco's brother young baby, brother. Don table, though, he plays on that team. So the fact that we we we wanna series against an eighteen pretty pretty damn good. You know, hopefully. You know, they fight and they try to get into the playoffs and the regionals like they did two years ago two years ago about the championship game in the region to the Gators a Walker handcocks in Walker to gator grad, and then the Gators went on to win the world Commodore theory this team, you know, like I said it's over changing..
Kyler Murray commits to pursuing NFL career and turns back on baseball
"Come from Kareem hunt to some good news for the NFL. Cuyler Murray says he is a fulltime QB. Now, the Oakland A's had his locker ready at spring training for this week. Yesterday is Twitter announcement from Murray apparently the first time the as heard of this decision to the show by Murray off this was the first batch. That he didn't tell us. That's a terrible. And I didn't know this statement doesn't mention them at all statements all football. Now. The flip side is the as believe that the statement came from his football agent and was worded. So that the NFL got the correct signals. But they still think the as do they still think they have a chance to get him back for baseball. If the draft and go well, and they can give him more money than the NFL Kent Steff on the as I'm like, yo what kid good luck going to Super Bowl. And you want to play baseball game. Go pick another team. This wasn't the best college baseball player coming out either. So it wasn't like he was really. He's a great athlete. Great deal. Great athlete for sure really good player. But I mean, if I'm as do especially that weight off the professionalism of the contact right now is stock to drop a little bit to where he fell to tonight. The overall the Oakland because there was the fear that baby he would decide to play football. But. Yeah. He's he's a really talented player. We'll see where where does. And that's a bad job though. I mean. They paid them one point three million dollars. You gave them over a four million dollar signing bonus you're due to pay 'em. You know, a three point one billion dollar what was left of that Buddhist March. I you have a locker set up at spring training. And then you find out via Twitter that he's committing to the National Football League. Now, we're talking about it earlier in terms of his size. I would have to believe obviously that we might not know what is true sizes by collar Murray, obviously and his agent they know where his true is. And if he was actually five seven, I calibre would probably be committing more to baseball. Then he would the national football true. True. Oh, I mean. So we could discuss baseball hall to right? But I mean, but you look in Mookie Betts is what five eight. Great exotic. He's not a big guy five eight five nine. Maybe he's five nine a scion Oklahoma column. Mary kay. He he better to ninety six and twenty teen and the two thousand seventeen okay, he better twenty two something he played that much. I guess that's what it sounds like. I mean, he had he had fifty six hits in two thousand eighteen yet six hits twenty seventeen. So it sounds like maybe it was injured dot I was I can't see them saying some towns Watson, I play baseball. But I mean, it's a good good batting average. But I'm just saying like this is not like he wasn't the top guy coming out of, you know. The college baseball draft here, you know. So it's like the as if I'm the as and he does that that's disrespectful, man, that's unprofessional. Why would? Bets is five nine. So they get nothing, by the way. If he does stay with football. They don't get the pick back because they already signed to a contract had they not signed him. They would have gone a compensation pick. But since they did they get nothing. Really? Well, they took the gamble. There were guys that night that said they were surprised that the as took the gamble then I'd overall pick. But if Murray was completely committed to baseball, and he wasn't gonna play Oklahoma football for a year. That many people thought that he would go he would be available for the athletics with the ninth overall pick. So we'll see maybe they maybe they believe that we'll see in the draft process. Maybe it'll be a great indicator in terms of of what Murray ultimately decides to do. But right now he's
"college baseball" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"All right. Come on. That was devastated. So it's time to go to junior, college baseball and football and beyond. All I wanna do is run out of a tunnel in front of hundred thousand people I want to be rockstar. But I can't see can't dance. I can't plan. But I still wanna go out of the tunnel and feel it why not so football was the key now Serena's Long Beach because I grew up in garden grove here. And so there's a lot of number one JC conference in America. Well, then there's a school called golden west junior college, and they were Owen twenty at a buddy that played there. This is exactly what I said to myself if I can't play there. I can't play anywhere. So I went to where I knew I was going to play. And I knew I'd be on the field. And I'd be on the field a lot because I knew that. If I want to go to college you can't make kicking a scholarship sitting on the bench. Right. So sure enough. I go play really, well, I'm academically qualified so I could transfer out as a true freshman, but nothing so I was like what the heck so oh, man, Tim Thurman. Yeah. Six six long, snapper, pretty better than than I ever was. So took some of his film, and I just put on my highlight and back then no internet. No HD. So as long as we're all white dudes like who can tell the difference. So then kindly, I was number forty seven. He's number forty eight. And this dude to this day. I voided hitting him every time in practice. I was the guy and I was good player. But I have voided hitting him. And I never once when head to head with them in practice, nor did I ever want to he just knocked people out. So it's like, well, we rotated just take some his big hits. And I'll just throw them on there too. So it's like me like finesse open-field making smart place covering slot receivers as a backer, it's knocking people out. And then it's a six six long, snapper. That's just throwing darts. I mean, honestly if you saw this tape was the greatest player in the history. It's believable, and it's Juku footage. There's only one camera who's the wiser and I do remember too. I gotta find this tape. I didn't have all the digital stuff. So like it was play pod. Records play part, of course. And some of the footage. I actually shot with the camera with VHS tape, and I would put my finger and point on the screen. I would record the TV plane VHS and just point to the guy that I was saying with me, otherwise, how would you right? It's so bad. I had to snap since I school and YouTube needed, snapper. Right. A buddy play there. He vowed for me he knew the other guys too. So we called me up. He's Tim coming here. True. Just give me in the door ball out. I promise just give me in the door. And it got me in the door. And I got a full ride in in back. Then it was when teams were just coming out with a roster spot for a snap or so I was kind of like the beginning of the air of that becoming its own position rock on baby. Super Bowl ring to pro bowls in a Super Bowl ring. Are you kidding me for position? I'd never should've played. Here. I am on your show.
