"Tell us about your list and how you came to the conclusion because a lot of LSU fans felt like they had the best team of all time. Yeah. Yeah, that's obviously that's the main point of disagreement on Twitter and whatnot is 2020 Alabama versus 2019 LSU, one, two, and those spots. I'm always gonna I watch both of those teams every single week. I think the 2020 Alabama team was just about perfect. I guess the difference between those two to me is that LSU's defense didn't one very good first two months of the year, rounded into form beautifully at the end of the year when sting broke through and everything else. But basically the way I've always viewed it is the team that LSU was at the end of the year is basically the team Alabama was all year. And I know there were COVID issues and a lot of just volatility going on there. But I think it's still speaks, it still says something that Alabama didn't really deal with any of those issues. They just had the depth. They had the organization, so to speak, to really just hit play 5th gear every single week all year. And I'm always going to think that that team was a little better than 2019 LSU. That doesn't mean I don't think a 2019 LSU was really, really good though. They clearly were. One last thing on that Alabama team because you always hear people say, well, COVID year. I've heard schools that didn't do well. Act like COVID year didn't happen. It's an asterisk. In your case, you're using it as a scale. As time marches on, are we going to quit calling it the COVID year? Is it an asterisk? What is it? Well, so far, as time has gone on, we seem to just make that asterisk bigger. Every single year, I put out a list and kind of update it with the new teams. I've had Alabama at the top every year and I've gotten yelled at more for it every year as well. So it probably has something to do with the fact that it's Bama and if we can discount a Bama team, we're going to do so because everybody, everybody who is not in Alabama fan and got tired of them win in a long time ago, so they want to think of a different team as being better. But I don't really mind that all that much. I think they had all these extra challenges just like everybody else that year and they handled them pretty much perfectly and fielded an almost perfect team. Bill, you also have the 21 Georgia team in the 22 Georgia team in your list pretty high. I understand the 21 team. How does the 20 two team get in there? Well, right now, among other things, they're unbeaten. If you go 15 and you got to be really high no matter what and Georgia in the end last year did get thumped by Alabama there in the SEC title game before getting their revenge. We'll see exactly how they handle. I'm very open to moving these teams around as needed over these next two games. So we'll see exactly how they handle things, but their biggest issue this year has just been attention span. When they have to play well, they're pretty much perfect. And if they back that statement up and they wall up Ohio State and wallet Michigan or whoever in the final, I have no problem at worst putting them in the top four there. This offense has been super creative and interesting to me. Defense somehow lost all those pro prospects and really only had a couple of glitches all year. I think this is just an immensely well rounded team. Maybe more than last year's team and we'll see where they end up. They could maybe top a 2018 Clemson if they look as good as I think they could. Bill Conley, spitting out some great knowledge here as we end this segment. Thank you very much, Bill. We head to the break more of your phone calls at 855-242-7285 a busy start to the program. More guests to come, we are back after this.

Bundled savings vary by state based on coverage limits selected, subject to terms, conditions and availability, all state vehicle and property insurance company and affiliates north park Illinois. Your college joining us who will be watching every one of these and then some always good to have you. So as we get ready for an endless stream of critically important game, you wrote this piece about the most important question. So what is what is or are the most important questions we need to be paying attention to? Well, the biggest question is when we're never going to know in advance and it's who shows up, you know, obviously a lot of a lot of programs use these bowls as springboards for the next season, but sometimes the quarterback's not playing sometimes your start offensive ends not playing. And it ends up just kind of being a makeshift team heading out there. But it's still a, it's still football, which is always great. And B I do think there's still a ton of value for a lot of teams in these games, especially kind of the group of 5 ones early in the bowl season. So we'll see which they're going to be some eggs in here along the way, but I am pretty optimistic about a lot of these. We're learning today that Bryce young and will Anderson junior are showing up. When it says you plan on showing up. Does that mean you're playing? Are you just showing up for all the free stuff? Well, I'm hoping to play. That would be kind of a big tease if they didn't play now, but yeah, I'm assuming that's what that means. They're going to be getting a lot of, they're going to be seeing a lot of pretty big checks here in the near future, so I can't imagine they just want to go for the bowl swag and hopefully hopefully they suit up and get at it one more time here. And my question, I understand what the coach will say, what they will say, but why are they showing up? What's the upside for those two who are going to be top three picks in the draft? Well, yeah, there's certainly risk. I guess maybe their stock is so high that it doesn't matter. Even if they do get hurt, they're still going to go in the top. Wherever it is they end up going here. So I guess you could look at it that way. Also, maybe the best answer I have for stuff like this is maybe they just like playing college football. I sure like watching them, so I'm not going to complain about it, but you do figure, they don't really have anything left to prove at this level. And if they're playing, they're playing because they want to and so be it, I guess. There are a lot of intriguing games and you've talked about some that could use that we could use as a springboard for next year. Where are you looking in relation to the hype train for 23? Well, I think there's an obvious one with South Carolina. Obviously, they're going to have a decent amount of turnover here heading into next year, but if you finish the European walloping Tennessee and then beating comes in a Notre-Dame, you're looking at a top 15 rating just like automatically, I think. So they've got an interesting amount to play for. But then there are teams like if Tennessee beats Clemson without hand and hooker and I guess receivers too. That's going to say a lot about their potential moving forward. Florida state has quite a bit to prove here. They look really, really good these last few weeks. You know, USC Penn State, that's kind of normal. But LSU as well. I think with what they seem to be bringing back next year, if they play really well against Purdue and handle that test pretty easily. I think that's going to say some pretty good things about them too. Chatting with Bill Conley, the USB. You did a list the other day. You know how much we love your list. Although I didn't find much with this one, you ranked all 36 schools that have been in the CFP.

"Yeah, hope Bobby will call back. I really want to hear from him. We were having some connections and apparently the lines are dropped. So we'll try to get Bobby back. Let's check in with Phil, who is up next in Florida. Hello. Hey, all hey coach, good to talk with you. Thank you. Big fan of your show. I got to tell you. Yeah, and I will echo what everybody has said about SEC network. You guys have done a fantastic job. I did want to weigh in a little bit on a couple of things. One is about Zach arnett and the second thing is about a trademark that Mike Lee always had. But first on Zach arnett, you know, looking at the whole story and the tragedy that happened. We as fans of SEC have to support Zach because it's in no interest to the SEC at all to see him flounder in a tragic time and having to deal with this thing. And coming up with 6 teams in the playoff in two years, he's got a four year contract. He's going to have to have a lot of help. And that includes the coaches and staffs and a lot of people who are in the SEC with teams. In my opinion, what do you think of that? Yes. I think these are situations where in the moment you almost have no choice, whether they work or not is open for debate. And what I mean by that is you don't know whether this will be successful until you look down the road a couple of years, but you have to put yourself in the position of doctor Keenum and his staff down there. You're going through one of the greatest crises in the school's history in terms of the athletic department. You want continuity to and you have somebody on the staff that you feel comfortable with. So that's why arnett got the job. I can't tell you anything other than what little we know about him. He's got a really good reputation, but he's 36 years old. He's walking into a nearly impossible job. You have Paul. There's a parallel. I was just reading an article recently from Atlantic magazine back a few years ago about military things. And I think Mike leitch would appreciate this. Story. But when you lose a leader in a battle, you're in war, you lose a leader, whether it's a sergeant or a colonel or a general, somebody has to step in those shoes. And sometimes it's not the person that you would expect, but somebody has to step up. In this case, it is our net and the troops behind him. The team, they're going to need a leader. And that's what I say. It's going to be tough. It will be tough for him. He's going to have his hands full. Last thing is on the trademark that I've mentioned about Mike leach. One thing I did learn this week is and I knew about this before because I would surface rather sofa my television, whatever my team was on, I'm a Georgia fan, but I always watched Mississippi state because I wanted to hear Mike leeches pre game halftime and postgame interviews. I loved it. I would just go back to watch that game. I probably have two or three SEC games going on once, but I would always want to listen to that. But he always had one thing that I thought was fantastic. And that's the air raid siren. I hope I just hope on Tuesday with the ceremony that they blast that air raid siren and they should do it loud and clear. Phil, thank you very much. We appreciate your call. David is up next. Hello, David. Hi, Paul. How are you? David, we are well. Good afternoon. I'm glad I appreciate you taking my call. I had a mini stroke of a couple of weeks ago, but I'm feeling better now. David, you sound stronger. How are you doing? I mean, I know this is still pretty recent time, but are you feeling better? I am, I am. I got my blood pressure down. So I'm feeling better. Well, good. I wanted to ask you what you thought about Brian said no. We don't coming back for next year.

"Charlie baker, a moderate Republican from a blue state in Massachusetts. Very much in the mold of Condoleezza Rice, the former Bush cabinet secretary. Who has had involvements and has been bandied about from time to time as a potential and suitable a president, a sort of a moderate Republican somebody who has shown an interest to who has a connection to college sports, Charlie baker was a collegiate athlete. So he's also older. He's 67. Mark emerit 69. This doesn't seem like somebody who is taking this job for the next decade, this seems like a very concerted hire for a very concerted purpose of getting the NCAA the most favorable federal legislation to pass, whether it includes an antitrust exemption, which would be the ultimate win for them or whether or not it's something less than that, but palatable for them given all of the uncertainty over NIL and the transfer portal. So yeah, this is a political actor to make a political play in Washington and really with the idea that next year something has to happen. I think there's broad consensus that things are becoming too unwieldy at this moment. And even politically, I mean, the year after that, we would be going into a presidential election, Congress has already very partisan. It's not going to get any easier. Can Charlie baker get read up on the issue quickly enough and be a useful collaborator with members of Congress in a way that Mark Emirates simply couldn't be. He was poisoned on the hill at this point and just was a non starter. So anybody, seemingly would have been better than Mark hammered, but Charlie baker also has a political background that it seems a conceivable will help the NCAA and the process. Daniel levitt, thank you very, very much. I appreciate your time. We'll be in touch. Some huge stories coming out of college athletics in relation to the future. And some big ones coming out right now in relation to what is to happen for Alabama on New Year's Eve, ESPN reporting at this hour that Bryce young and will Anderson considered two of the best players in the country. Will play in the sugar bowl. This comes as a surprise to some who believe that they would both opt out. They are apparently are going to play in the game, a completely changes the dimension, it's somewhat reminiscent of three years ago and many believed there would be a mass exodus after Alabama did not make the playoffs that did not happen Alabama ran Michigan out of the stadium down in Florida and it looks like Nick Saban will take a full team to New Orleans for the game against Kansas sta the interesting to see the betting line on that, whether it changes with this news because many people had assumed they would not play. So big news for Alabama. We will have many more conversations about the bowl games coming up. Bill Conley, joining us in a few minutes. The former Georgia star Keith Marshall, and we'll preview Florida's bowl game. That is tomorrow. Yes, sneaking up on us here. And your phone calls when we come back.

"Dot com reports with civil juries found a woman liable for malicious prosecution in a ripe allegation she made against former Ohio State football standout Gary and Conley more than 5 years ago.

Connelly's attorney said the sex was consensual. Connolly sued her in a counter claim accusing her of malicious prosecution. He asked for just $300 in damages. The jury agreed. I Norman hall

When Florida was what 22 million people finishes voting and counting at 10 p.m. on election day and we're nearly a week later and they're still counting ballots in a couple of states that are one third of the side of Florida. No wonder people question that kind of outcome. It's unconscionable to be counting votes a week later in a place like America. We ought to have the systems in place. We used to do this. This has been created. I believe COVID was a cover up for this to give them a reason to do mail in ballots. And it's just the potential for problems is ripe. It's just huge and massive and it definitely does make people wonder what's going on and question the results. I want to play

Chad Connelly: Republicans Did a Poor Job Setting Expectations

"Chad, the pollsters got it all wrong. And I'm not sure that most, I'm not sure anybody had this projected the right way, because when you actually break down a lot of these races, there was no way the Republicans were ever going to win those 5 or 6 or 7 seats that they were projecting was going to happen. In reality, my question is, was there really a red wave in the first place? You know, I think that we did a really poor job of setting expectations because, you know, when you tell people you're going to win big, you kind of suppress your own vote. Now, we set some record turnouts and has some good wins, but I think you're right. It's an uphill climb. We only had to only have like ten or 12 seats to target had to defend 20 something ourselves. And that flips in 24. But I do think you're on the something that we poorly set and certainly poorly managed or expectations. I don't know if you saw this, but it took to your point when Blake masters has $9 million to run for Senate in Arizona. And Mark Kelly has $75 million. That's not a level playing Bill and it's very difficult to unseat an incumbent who outspends you almost ten to one. So

"Love the fact only on the Paul fine bomb show. Like realizing that I spent most of my life playing country music for a living. One of my favorite things about Twitter is that half the world presumes that because I lived in the south for 25 years of my life and played country music. That means I lean a certain way. And the Paul finebaum audience at times decides that because I guess I lived in Nashville that some people on Twitter have accused me of being this liberal SEC hating. I'm not sure what any of it has to do. The one thing I would say is this. You know the phone number, 8 5 5 two four two poll, 855-242-7285. My least favorite thing about keyboard warriors is that they choose to type if you're smart enough to type, you should be smart enough to dial a phone number. And if you're smart enough to dial a phone number, then call me and we can have it out. Otherwise, sit down, shut up and color in your books. In the meantime, I've got so much to say with an actual expert that can get everybody clued in on what we need to know about what's going on in the world. Bill Connolly, ESPN writer joins us Bill always appreciate your work always appreciate your time. Thank you so much for hanging out with me. So we're trying to figure out like all of us are trying to figure out what the future looks like over the course of the next couple of weeks. But is there something that you're looking at that you think could actually be resolved in a reasonable amount of time before we hit this season that will tell us anything about the future of what we could see? Well, I think the most interesting thing to me is, I mean, we know the big tent is looking at its media rights trying to figure all that out and negotiate in that renegotiate whatever they were homing in on another they've added Los Angeles. And so they announced those rights and they haven't added any more schools have an added organ in Washington or Notre-Dame or whatever, we might be done for a little bit. Obviously, the domino effect is just beginning. We've got to figure out who wins the rock fight between the big 12 and PAC ten, I guess. We have a lot to figure out there, but we are automatically fast forward and we're like, okay, that Big Ten will take these things and then the SEC will take them and so on and so forth. We could be done for a little while with the really big moves. If we get that announcement of the meteorites. Well, Oregon and Washington are still sitting here saying, what about us? So what about them? Yeah, that is going to be the hardest spot in the world and that they really might be part of future Big Ten plans, but maybe not for a few years. Maybe the media rights get announced. And they're looking at, hey, maybe in 5 years, we'll get to move. But if they don't move, then where do you feel most comfortable right now? Do you feel with a PAC 12 that just adds San Diego state and Boise or UNLV or whatever? Do you get intrigued by the thought of joining like half your conference and then move to the western third of the big 12 that's 18 or 20 teams? It's going to be held a lot of cards here if they don't land in the Big Ten. They're going to kind of determine who survives out of those two conferences and what it looks like. So if you're the Big Ten in the SEC and the real move is two mega conferences or some sort of Super League. What prevents each of you from poaching four teams and essentially making the ACC so irrelevant that the grant of rights is no longer a conversation? Well, I think the biggest thing that could prevent that from happening is just think about this in terms of how much money the SEC is going to be making hundred, whatever million per school and the Big Ten is going to come out with its number soon and it's going to be pretty similar. Anybody else they add, the overall dollar figure is going to be ridiculous or even more ridiculous, but that per school number might go down. So they really might just decide like, yeah, we could rule the world completely if we want and have like a 40 team top division of college football, but our schools have been making less money per school in that case. So why don't we just stay with this? I think that's going to be kind of interesting. Because it makes perfect sense that both of these just continue adding assets and whatnot. But we have Alabama. It was going to make a hundred whatever. 5 billion. Things are currently, but they don't make a 102 billion a year in some other scenario. They might not do it. We'll see. I'm very curious about that aspect of it. I feel like we're talking about monopoly money. It's so insane to be thinking about a $100 million per year per school in some of this. But then I look at Notre-Dame. And again, if we're going to go with some concept of a super conference, if I'm the Big Ten and I'm the SEC, I negotiate my own college football playoff and I tell Notre-Dame. You're either in with us or you're stuck out in the cold. I mean, how concerned should Notre-Dame be about being essentially boxed out? I mean, I think they know they're going to have the option. They're going to, in that scenario. And that is a way to make that per school number go up to an SEC start just join in and say, let's do this and have our own playoffs. But in that scenario, they still tell the Notre-Dame are you in or out? And they can say, okay, fine, we're in. So I mean, I guess it's not, it's not day one, obviously. What they want is independence and maintain and all that other stuff, even if it means a little less money in a given year. That's clearly what they want. They also know they want to shout at the national title. And so that's a way to, if you really want Notre-Dame, then that's how you do it. I just don't know if it all comes to pass here in the next. Well, especially in the next year or two. So Bill, I'm not sure if the gods of ESPN will like me asking this question, but I have to, right? I mean, at some point, we're looking at an SEC contract that the ESPN now owns, including the game of the week. And CBS, for example, has been very adamant that they're going to be aggressive in filling that window with big college football. How much does just the fact that we own this much of the SEC, which is put pressure on everybody else to overbid if they want to stay in the game. How much does that impact what everybody's paying for media rights right now? Well, I mean, once you set the bar at a certain level, then it has to be cleared. And it will be interesting with CBS, especially because I'm a Big Ten can match what the SEC is doing at this point, but they're still going to be a lot of other offerings out there. And if Fox is going to end up controlling most of what the Big Ten owns or whatever does moving forward, then maybe CBS does try to put together some sort of whatever the phrase and we were hearing earlier about the ACC and PAC 12 loose alignment or whatever. Maybe they try to figure out ways to just get the most attractive remaining games out there. I don't know though, because.

"He knows what he's doing. And he's still still recruits good players, incredible players. That being said, I think anybody that knew about last year knows the a.m. was not an 8 and four team. They finished 8 and 8 and four, but they're starting quarterback, Phil injured in the second game of the year. And the guy that came in to replace him, he just wasn't up to par. He just, he didn't meet their expectations in Jimbo was he was the one to answer. He had to answer to that. So he's got to answer to this now that he's got better talent, better quarterbacks. But the second point is, the university, it's no small university. I lived in Tennessee and I was lived in Alabama and I've talked to people who and I had people ask me, how big is the university of a and M? Isn't it pretty small? A guy in Tennessee thought it was smaller than Vanderbilt and I said, you might be surprised to know that it's the top, it's the largest university in SEC. And now it's the largest university in the nation, just ahead of Central Florida. Most people don't know that. And then the facilities, the facilities, are they second to none? I don't know, but their second to not very many. And are they second Alabama? Maybe you can answer that. Maybe you've seen both facilities. I suspect that they're not second to Alabama. And then the final point is game day. You said you've been at College Station a few times to perform. I don't know if you've been to game day in College Station. Game day in College Station I'll put it this way. Everybody loves their own game day. Everybody's proud of their own game day. Everybody has things they love about, they like the different aspects of their game day. I've talked to people who have gone to game day in College Station who aren't Aggie fans, they go to see their team play against a and M and they report back that they are in awe of not just the fan base, but the facilities, the game day experience, everything about it. I like it right nothing else. I'm sorry I got to cut you off. We're up against it. I think you're right about a lot of what you're saying and it leads me to a real solution to some of this conversation that I think everybody needs to hear and I'll tell you that in a minute is somebody that has no skin in the game for either of these teams. I think there's an obvious point that both sides of this conversation have completely missed on. I'll give you that plus you guys can keep chiming in 855-242-7285. So Paul finebaum show,.

"Friday, 7 to 9 p.m. eastern. That's where you can usually find me and Sarah Spain hanging out. So if you've had a good time keep hanging out with us, you can also follow me on Twitter at Jason Fitz, easy to get to me there or on Instagram under the same thing. If you're into any of those sorts of things, you guys are chiming in on all the college football takes. Remember, it starts with what was your first concert. That is an important part of where it starts. Once we know that piece of it, then we can go from there. But obviously everybody's super fired up as they try and figure out how to weigh these waters that have Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher yelling at each other about everything, really, at this point. And let me just say that SEC commissioner Greg sankey had an opportunity to step in and make a definitive statement. And really, I don't think did. It was a bit of a, hey, this isn't sportsman like, and we all need to figure out how to work together very kumbaya. I think it's fair to question whether the treatment would have been the same of a lesser name coach from a lesser brand school in this entire argument as these are the two adults in the room. Remember that. Nathan and College Station wanting to chime in. I appreciate it. I can't imagine where you fall on this issue being from College Station, but Nathan, most importantly, first off, what was your first concert? In 1980, lazy summer afternoon with Sam attack you saw a little band called ice in the whole band. And it just so happened that George Strait was that was George trace band before he became somebody. And then later that evening with the San Antonio saw AC/DC back and back at the Joe and Harry Freeman coliseum it was a great day. Oh, man, you saw a straight and AC/DC in the same day. That is, that's legend status. Nathan, that's awesome. All right, give me your college football take. What's going on? So I just was wondering if anybody heard the comments by Jimbo the days that he went and checked with his compliance department because of all this uproar. We had 11 early enrollees, only one person has NIL deal. And so in what I think why Jimbo went kind of 8 crazy on him? Because he made it personal. Nobody seems to be talking about it. Saban said that every player on the team was bought. So that means it's before NIL was even started that he accused Jimbo Fisher of buying players. And I think that's what kind of bugged camel's back with Jimbo. And for all these people that say that fly go to College Station, what's in college stations? Did you know that a and M has the largest enrollment of a university in the United States with over 70,000 people? I think it's a slap in the face of the community and to the students and I think Jimbo took it personally to hit sable was calling his players law breakers. It's a legend, I got a family tree must not forks. That's all I got to say. Thanks for the call. Nathan, and I'll address a couple of things. Number one, I've played College Station plenty of times in my country music career. It is a great place. I've had a blast at College Station. I got nothing but and frankly, if you've ever gone through most of these towns in the south, most of them are smaller towns that live eat and breathe football. I mean, you can make the argument why go to and insert almost any school there if it's not your particular cup of tea. And for a lot of people that want to live in different areas, you know, that's just a common part of conversation. So I put no weight to the why go their conversation to your point. I think that's why Nick Saban walked it back a little bit the next day or tried to walk it back but didn't even do a particularly good job of it. Both men got personal and look, again, these are educators. These are teachers. That's what they're paid to do. As college football coaches, they are paid by a school, so they represent the school. So you've got to rise above. And we all know if you've ever had kids, I don't have kids, but I was a kid once, and we all know the argument of like, hey, the clapback is still gonna get you in trouble. Both of these adults handled their situations flat out poorly. I don't think that that's a hot take. At some point, you've got to look around and say, okay, how are we going to handle this and when are we going to ask for more? That's what I keep saying. Ask for more Joey, sorry, Joby in Alabama. Joby, what you got, man. Thanks for all the show. What was your first concert? My first concert was Huey Lewis and the news. So good. Was it good? Tell me it was amazing. Oh, it was awesome. It was awesome. There was one point where somebody threw something up on the stage. And they stopped the concert and said, if you want us to leave and everybody turned on that individual and kind of ushered them out of the crowd so it was kind of cool. But it was a great concert. Great band. I have in the background awesome, awesome. That's amazing. All right. So give me your college football thoughts. I want to, I don't want to bad mouth David because he just doesn't know a lot of people just don't know about a and M, they're not very educated about a and M they're not very educated about Jimbo to be honest. Jimbo was not new to recruiting. He had a top 6 or 7 class the last four years. He's not this is not his first number one class overall. He's not immune. I mean, he's not, he's had a national championship. He's no slouch..

"Jason Fitz filling in for Paul, you guys hanging out with me 8 5 5. Two four two 7 two 8 5. That's how you get in on the fun. Having a great time. Bob Dylan, 81, says today's the 81st birthday of Bob Dylan, which in rockstar years is like 232. I just saw that The Rolling Stones are about to do another tour too. And I'm like, man, I don't know how. Kudos to them. A little bit of the music fun comment for any of you guys that don't know my background. I toured in country music for a very long time. So we're having a little fun with that asking you guys to tell me your first concert anytime we take a call. So be ready for that one. Art and Birmingham, Alabama, art, which first concert, brother. Hey, hey buddy, this is awesome. Thank you for taking my call and I have to share this tough coming off fall fireball. You know, but I really think you're awesome. And you really feel them perfect. Thanks, man. But okay, my first concert is, well, you guys know, I always called him Bradley. And so we were out of class and we were participating in extra liquor. And he said, let's see a show. And we go out in the den and there's a broken old square of TVs. You know, you know, you know, and the glass was broken and it was jagged and there was a shoot box in the TV and the Grateful Dead was playing. You could see the crowd and their set. It was all. False. Grateful Dead. And they never saw me. He had to push on the TV and they'd come back. It was great. I mean, he was a stout. Musician type of guy. I think he was truly into country music. I didn't know him that well, but a memorable, memorable moment. That's a really cool story. I appreciate you sharing it. And I appreciate our kind words you're right. It is not easy to fill in for the great Paul fine bomb. I'll tell you a story about the first time I ever met Paul in my life later in the week. It's risque. That's all I'm saying. It's risque. That's a tease for later in the week. And I haven't given you my first yet, we will do all of that, but you guys are fired up as I started the show today. Basically asking why everybody's scared. And why the name image like this thing seems to have everybody afraid of competition and why the scheduling conversation seems to have everybody afraid of competition and that has everybody chiming in with all sorts of ideas and all sorts of anger about everything that's going on. So let's get some more of those name image likeness thoughts, bob and Fort Worth, bob. Appreciate you calling before you give me your thoughts on NIL. What was your first concert, my friend? Well, my first full blow concert that I've got a car and Joe two was hard. Oh man, that is an awesome answer. That is were they great, tell me Hart was spectacular. They were spectacular and I was and I hadn't got the thing in there, but I felt better after I left. I'm telling you, man, she could sing. There's a difference. There's she can sing. And then there she can sang. She could sing. Like, oh my God, that was, you got me fired up, bob. All right, now go ahead and give me your name and it's like this thoughts, my friend. Well, you know, all these people scrolling and you start me and tell me if I'm wrong, namely ju likeness is not supposed to have anything to do with the school, am I correct? Yeah, well, name like this. The school isn't handing out the check, correct. But yeah, so this isn't the one actually writing the check, correct. I mean, but down to it, it's supposed to be between a player and some company or mom and pop grocery store on the corner or something. Right. I mean, that's the basis of the whole thing. So why is Satan setting up there and saying, well, we're going to put our deal. So everybody gets paid the same. I think what happened is, through this process, well, I don't think. I mean, what has happened through this process is donors for certain schools have come together and created a way where they're paying kids under the presumption. I understand that. Okay. I understand that. But everybody jumped on Jimbo, well, what do you mean you don't know what's going on? Well, the way I understand the way this thing is supposed to work, he's not supposed to know what's going on. There's a fine line between how much coaches are supposed to know because they're supposed to be making sure that the kids, they're looking out for the kids. In some schools, you file the name image like this deal through the screen to help track everything. But yeah, I see what you're saying. I mean, how would you have it handled then? Well, I don't think there's any way to handle it. And the only people you hear hollering about equity and this and that is the schools that are not going to be able to keep up. And. It's a shame, but Alabama ain't going to be able to keep up with any likeness. And ain't going to happen. No way possible because you could bankrupt the state Alabama and not be able to come up with the money that a and EM can't. And that's just that's just fact. And I understand, you know, Nick, he's all upset because he's always had it his way. Well, things are changing. And he's not going to always get all the best players now. And when he's holding about equity, the closest thing Nick Saban has ever been to equity, where he was coach at Miami. And he didn't do so hot.

"Always good to have Bill Conley on. He is good as it gets when it comes to really breaking down the analytics. He's looked into a number of things right at fourth down attempts, two point conversions, et cetera. Lane kiffin's name comes up quite often because you remember last year kiffin was the riverboat gambler. It did not always work. Bill, good to have you back. Thanks so much. Give us the back story on this project. What an interesting approach. Yeah, I mean, this is one of those things where I've written about it here and there for a really long time and I realized it had been a really long time since I wrote about it and over these last four years, even more than I kind of realized in my head, coaches are kind of starting to pay attention to the odds when it comes to win probability type stuff and when to go for it on fourth down when to go for two. And I felt it was about time to write about that explosion. And so I like the way it came together. So what did you learn? Well, I mean, the number one thing is, so fourth out of ten, just starting with the basics. 60% of the time, 5 years ago, teams went forward on fourth of one. 74% in 2021. It was over 90% on the opponent side of the field. Whether it's championship analytics, the book, the company that provides the book for lame kip and a bunch of other teams, whether it's just kind of watching other succeed with it and being more willing to try it yourself. Whatever reason, it really does seem for the one fourth and two a little bit three and four teams do seem to be going for it a lot more when they should. And that makes that's more fun to me overall too. So it's kind of a win win. So is it getting we showed the settlement of our exactly the number, but is it getting easier or more difficult? That part really hasn't changed. I was curious about that too. I didn't end up talking a lot about that because the overall success rate stayed about the same on two point conversions that actually went up a little bit. So that was good to see too. It's not like you just got the one time you can do it that it'll work. It really is just an odd thing. You know, fourth and one, you're going to get it, whatever it is. 70% of the time. And that seems to be the case whether you do it ten times. There are a hundred. So but opponent adjusted and all that other stuff. But it does seem like doing it more doesn't necessarily decrease your odds. It's so interesting. So in 21, 74% fourth and one, 49% fourth and two, I mean, I realized the play changes, but that one yard, that's a pretty dramatic number. Yeah, that was a little surprising. I didn't expect to and then fourth and three and four to have gone up that much as well. And I mean, you look into the odds of converting in that situation and versus voluntarily giving the other team the ball back, it still makes a lot of sense to do it. I just did not know we had come that far along in that regard. In the other part of this is two point conversions, which drive coaches and fans crazy. I mean, I remember I was watching Harbaugh with the ravens. I think he blew two or three straight games on a two point conversion play. I know that's the NFL, but what's it like in college ball? Yeah, it's harder in college first of all. So the odds are a little different because in the pros they do it to in college they do it at the three. So basically, I was talking to Seth wilder of staff and info and Brian Burke and a bunch of guys for this piece and I mean, they basically said, you can make a case that the NFL team should always go for it because they only make their PhDs like 93% of the time. So you could make that case. It's a lot. It's a lot more situational in college. That's for sure because that extra yard tax that win that probability down quite a bit. So we've seen a little bit of an increase in college, but not as much as we've seen in the pro so far. Yeah, so for those of you listening not watching in college ball in 7 years, we're in 6 years, it's gone from 39.2% to 44.7. I asked you this earlier, but that's a pretty good number. I mean, again, is it just the offenses are better? Is that a guess? Or do you have anything to back that up? Does that possibility just the short yardage? And the copycat nature of everything, once you see a two point play that works, you're going to put it in your book too. There is that aspect of it, but maybe I don't know, maybe the 44% was just particularly high this year and based around the teams with good offensive being more likely to try it. I don't know. But it has been at least a little bit of an increase each year. So we'll see if that continues, but yeah, it was at least good to see with both with both fourth down than two points. You don't get worse at them. I can do it more. Like you don't give away all your secrets. You can try more and it might not, it might work out pretty well for you. So riddle me this, and I think I'll try to get the stats right. Fourth and three, which would be the two point conversion, right? That number, we just gave it at 43%, how come forth in three from the goal line is different. Yeah. Yeah, well, the number above whatever it was, 28%. They only go for 28% of the time. I don't remember the success. It might be pretty close to that. I'd have to look that up, but yeah, I feel location among other things ends up mattering a whole bunch here. So when you get a guy like Elaine kiffin, who played the analytics game last year and lost a couple of times, do other coaches use the analytics now? Or do they just simply go on instinct and the feel of the game? Well, I can't say that that company I referenced in these championship analytics. I know they're the ones who work with lane kiffin and old miss. They represent half of FBS at this point. It's grown quite a bit for them. Now, not everybody who has the book uses it, obviously. But I do think kip and the last two Alabama games the last two Alabama old missed games kind of showed you both sides of the fourth down coin. You're adding variability and one year ago, I think four for four against Alabama and they're tied into the fourth quarter and end up playing Alabama as well as anybody. And then the next year they fail on fourth down the first two drives of the game and they get blown out. So there's definitely it adds kind of a variability to the mix. And if you're an underdog, that ends up being kind of what you want for that exact reason. You get blown out once, but you almost win another game, and that's a fair trade for a lot of coaches. I realize I'm getting a little bit outside the Bailey work here, but kiffin went forward. You said very early in the game. The odds change from early in the game when it's probably completely unexpected to later in the game when everyone knows what the player is going to be or what you're going to do. Well, I think not really. Well, among other things, we know Alabama was probably ready for it with what happened to them before, but I do think I didn't put that in the piece. I do think that I don't think there's a dramatic difference between first, second and third or fourth quarter if I remember right. It is something that if the defense is caught by surprise, they'll call a timeout and then they'll be ready for it or whatever, but I don't think that makes a big, it makes a big win probability difference. Like early in the game, it's not going to affect all that much and late in the game it could mean you win or you lose, but it did certainly set the tone for this last Alabama. That's for sure. Always great stuff from Bill Connolly. Bill come back soon, we will talk to you as we get closer to football season finally. We appreciate it. And let us know how you're.

"Can dig deeper into the Bard one day and see if we can match the Iman to and Jim and all the rest of them to various Shakespearean performers. Thank you very much for the call. Interesting analysis. I don't know if I'm a big fan of Shakespeare, but I think you would more fit a comedy than a tragedy I'm in. Car key under the under. I mean, I was listening to Scott will protect you. You got to get more people California. Indiana. How do you do that? Don't those people actually have to pick up the phone and call you. Are you going to start calling random people? I mean, we had a guess from California on earlier. Sometimes I wonder if these people, they got from Kentucky, called in, and he's from Kentucky and said on screen from Kentucky. I mean, that tells you somewhat. Now this last guy, he should probably, but he was nuts. So I guess it gets screwed up somewhere in process. But he did straighten it out. But you would think some of these people would look at screens so, you know, that guy. He's getting calls from Kentucky. Look at there. There's Nick. Mama. Do these people pay attention to you think when they ask you a question? I don't know. I'm asking you a question. I was in deep thought. I'm sorry, I don't do this every day like you do. I'm answering, I'm not quite as adept or a droid at talk radio. And I'll listen to your program because it's entertaining. And you got to get there for people. You got to get rid of them regular callers. If it wasn't for people that call you regular, I think you've got more than 5 or 6 record callers when you say that. Yeah, we just had a caller bracket with about 30 people. So I would say the answer is yes. And those are regular callers. And you could have put another ten or 15, 20 more on there, that are known names that I would recognize. And then you get a lot of people. You know what I mean? I don't mean to be snippy here with the callers, but maybe we should just get some more guests on. And just go up and down, you know, have lacrosse coaches on, we could have and those people would complain about that. We could have the beat reporter for the Texas checkers tournament. Yeah, and shuffleboard. We pickleball. Yeah, shuffleboard. Something, Jim could really talk about. You work in general. Did you were you here earlier today? When Jim gave us this the denial, no, I didn't. Okay, I don't want to repeat it then. I'll just let you catch up on some other time. What did he refuse to have children in this world or something? Yeah, no. A young guy called in and said that he was Jim's grandchild. Grandson and Jim called in and I don't know if I need to write it down because I don't want to misquote Jim. Guys in the other room. Can you help me with this? Do you have a down better than I do? Yeah, he said, I've never flagrantly committed intercourse like some of your callers. Ew. For the purpose of having children. What is that? What does that mean? Flagrantly. It's kind of a normal. It's kind of a normal thing that goes back to history of man. Sounds pretty aggressive for me. Isn't that why eve came into this whole picture? Was that the phrase it is? He used the word flagrant Lee, so he knows all about everything, including political science because he had one class. As you know, I'm Anne flagrant Lee, the LY was the key here, is an adverb. And the definition of flagrant Lee is to do something in it. Yeah, the intentional obviously offensive, so the description would be that, yeah, I mean, I think it's pretty self explanatory, isn't it? So he considers that whole part of the reason there's a man and women. In defense of Jim, I think he said his intent is meaning is that if you're not married, which he said he has never been, and you are in your having relations with someone, then you are flagrantly having. You know, I think Jim's a stupidest damn person that I've ever heard. Hold on, I mean, don't go anywhere. Hold the thought. Here it is, right here. We'll replay it. You should know by now, I didn't flagrantly have intercourse with women, like some of these people probably do. There you go. That's amazing. That's amazing. Can we can we do that one more time? I want to capture this. Here we go. One more time. You should know by now. I didn't flagrantly have intercourse with women. Okay. But you know, that's the reason that the gyms always been known as the right hand guy. That's flavor it now. And that's kind of sick when I tell you. And then, you know, that comes with the word chronic. Can we use that in there too? Chronic? I mean, this guy is an imbecile. He claims to know everything about the bottle. He claims to know everything about politics for good colors are and it's all based on one word. He's compelled. Thanks, Amanda. Hate to run. We're a little bit late for the break. I thought you were done. I didn't mean.

"Let's continue with more phone calls here in Nick. Not that Nick. Nick is in Florida. Hello, Nick. Hey there. Hi Paul. The alumni are starting to grumble and I'm the one starting it. So 80% of the Alabama student population couldn't pick out Greg Byrne if he was standing next to them in the chipotle line. But let me tell you if he ever wants to submit a legacy at Alabama. He needs to be doing right now anything he can to get Davos Sweeney. While he can. And if that means he needs to move off Nick Saban a year or two earlier than Nick Saban would like, let's face it, if you're still impressed with what you did yesterday, you haven't done a thing today. Nick, hold on a second. I mean, I mean, I think being a leader. No, no, you just said something. Okay, hold on a second. So much going to lose to Arkansas and older, both. They're going to they are terrible. I'm not laughing at that. But I am sitting here not believing when I heard a minute ago. Allow me just to ask you a question. You're in Alabama stand, right? I'm an Alabama alone. Okay. That was a nice way of finding that. And former athlete and former athlete. Okay. So you're suggesting that if Greg burn can get a commitment from dabo Sweeney, then he needs to, I'm going to embellish here, but stop me if I'm going too far. He needs to suggest a Nick Saban that he moves aside a little earlier than maybe he anticipated or expected, right? So let me step back what I heard previously on the show about how Nick Saban is going to help craft who's coming next. Right. Let me tell you, that never works. It's not going to work Nick Saban's ego is too big for that. And Greg Bern, like I told you to submit his legacy. He's got to do something. And what's doing something, transitions are messy. I rather transition early than to have two lost years or three lost years, trying to figure out how do we gently tell Saban it's time to go because he might never look in the mirror. There you go. I'll just play devil's advocate because I don't get to do that very often. But why would I love saving? Don't get me wrong. No, you know, every time I talk to somebody, I'm not saying this to you. I think it was Mike Griffith you a couple of weeks ago. He was telling me how much everybody respects Nick Saban. That doesn't need to be said any longer, but I just wonder though he just turned 70 a week ago. And he's 9, ten months, 11 months removed from a national championship. His team was number one in the country. Now he's number two. I'm just wondering how you have that conversation. So that's how Greg Bern earns a million 5 a year, right? I mean, he's a no body. And he will be a nobody. If he wants to submit his legacy, he's got to figure out and establish Sweeney. Make no mistake. Clemson's down, Clemson can not compete in the future. Georgia is going to continue to have fun here, even though this is not fun to think about. Let's say Byrne calls dabo tonight, dabo has had a rough year and established his listen I think this is probably a good time for me to walk away if you're offering me that job. When can I have it? And let's say dabbler says, I'll come back. I'll come now. I'll answer that, Paul. Okay. I'll answer that Paul right now. And okay, right now. Then you being lacking in the recruiting right now. You know, we're slacking and recruiting right now. I'm not sure will end up. We are. I think in the latest Alabama makes a late push. They always make a lot of those no, no, I understand. I follow this very closely. But we're losing traction. I see it, Georgia. I hope we don't get to play George and SEC championship. They will annihilate Nick. Alabama ranked number, Alabama's rank number two in recruiting. Okay, do me one more favor here. Let's say dabble dabo may you can go third party because I don't think dabo wants to be on the record right now. Let's say Davos sends a signal that he'll take the job beginning at the end of the season. You beat Greg Byrne for just a second, okay? Would you take that on? I want you to go. I'm gonna get no biscuit. We're going to be Greg Byrne for the sake of argument. You go down to Nick Saban's office. I'll be Nick Saban, okay. Greg, come on in. What's on your mind? I mean, I think Drake's got to have a couple of security guys with him. This could get messy. I just want to know Debbie's going. I've never Debbie's going through the air. Hey, listen, I've never had, I've never been an executive. I've never had it on. I mean, I'm just, I'm a talk show host. I'm a nobody. I want to know what the opening line is from Greg Byrne to Nick Saban that he's about to replace. I got it right here. Coach Saban, we need to talk. Okay. You know, you care about the success of this program just as much as us and sometimes it's tough to know, when is the right time to pass the torch? Well, we're going to make it easy for you. We've got a replacement who we think is the future of the program and we have mutual respect and we expect you to be on board with this. Paul, you know if Disney exactly whoever it is these days came into your office and said, Paul, you know, we look through that guy knit from Florida about some of the SEC programming and it's being terrible. We need you to make it happen. You need to, you're gonna do it, right? I mean, you take it for the team. Nick Saban needs to take it for the team that maybe he won't. Okay, did you know that I think Nick Saban would do? Beat him up. I think he would just say Greg, I'm getting ready for a game, but don't bother me. Well, I know but great burns this is boss. Yeah. And with one phone call, Greg Byrne would be with one phone call, Greg burn would be unemployed. Well, that's maybe true. But let's say Greg bird needs to figure out how to make this position. I'm not going to sit here and act like this is not. This could be an issue one day. And I don't know when it is, but I don't know if it's an issue today and what I really don't know is. I don't know if that was really the answer. Oh, I do. Okay. If we get beat by Arkansas by 14 17 points, is this conversation the same Nick? Let me end this here by saying thank you. I covered the end of coach Bryant. And coach Brian fired himself. He decided after the losing the LSU that it was over. And the ball went into motion. Let me get some reaction to that call. That was crazy. Jim is up next. Hey, Jim. You got that right. You got that right. You just pop the motion saying craziest call from that stupid idiot, Nick, then you did from what you guys know. I was named the oven portion of the train. You have to. We call with that moron. That's a stupidest call that you've ever heard, Paul. Even Harvey's call one net stupid.

They want to destroy everything. Crazy as hail Paul, that was crazy. You got it right. Okay? By the way, this call is coming after a win over LSU. We talk about the man he won't, in place of the greatest way that's all I got to say, but I can't talk any more. And by the way, thanks for calling Jim. We're heading to the bright, if there was somebody out there that was so great that you could say, you know what I mean? Yeah, I could see a transition here, but I just don't know why I don't know that many people at Alabama that would say, okay, we're going to get rid of Nick Saban early so we can get dabo Sweeney. I don't see that one, but hey, I just take the phone calls as they come in here. Let's take a break. More to come. Shane.

"He said today that it became a parent and he wanted to get a head start on looking for a new coach or new coaches, both of those guys have been with him a long time. I've seen a lot of firings, but sometimes it will come early, maybe even in the middle of this season, but 9 games into it. I mean, I mean call me cynical, Bill, please, but that just reeks of trying to save your own job, doesn't it? Yeah, and I mean, like I said, I was surprised they didn't make a move 9 months ago, it would have made a lot of sense after what we saw last year record setting offense in a defense to let you down repeatedly. We would have made more sense, but now it absolutely has the kind of failing water out of the boat. I got to keep myself afloat no matter what. So again, it's the move that probably should have been made and the offensive line move was a little interesting to me. I didn't really see that one coming. I guess you score 24 points in two weeks and you start to look on that side of the ball too. But yeah, it certainly you could constitute them as panic moves if you want. But it was probably some move that needed to be made regardless. It almost seems like bill that you know he was going to fire Todd grant, and that was just to appeal and say, to the message board and the twitterverse. Maybe this next guy just was right there. He was waiting to come in to see Mueller. He picked the worst time to do it. But you're right, I can't think of any other explanation. That guy not only recruited dak Prescott to miss a new state for Mullen, but he's been with him 20 years. So I guess those things do happen. Let's get to the CFP. And the conundrum better known as Cincinnati. It seems like they picked a really bad time to have a bad game. Yeah, this was a great week to have a great game. That's for sure with Alabama's juggling with Michigan state losing organ in Ohio State both women, but not by any means looking like massive contenders doing so. It would have been a great time to take a big step forward. I don't know if it would have made a difference, though. I kind of feel like as far as the committee's concerns into that is and ended at two O a month ago and they don't really care about anything that happens beyond that. It's kind of jarring that they were below the teams they were below last week. Even before this performance, even before the full weight of strength of schedule and a full AAC schedule took hold, they were already 6. And that was disconcerting. I still mean they would be closer to about forth, maybe 5th. But to be behind three one loss teams at that stage before they had even had a chance to not play all that well and get both that. That wasn't, that wasn't good. That's not the way this should have gone, I don't think. Let's wrap up here by going back to your piece and I know there's too much dimension, but if you had to chisel it down to two or three things that you are really keying in on over these next couple of weeks. So where would you go? I think, I mean, well, obviously, the iron bowl and SEC championship are at the top of the list. This was a new performance, a new level that we hadn't seen in a while from Alabama. And I'm very curious how they respond, especially against when they kind of have a cupcake that's coming week, but they can really get focused the way they need to. But also I think CJ Stroud from Ohio State is kind of the most in the spotlight quarterback moving forward. Just because they've been awesome, his stats are great. They're numbers are great. And against really good defenses, they've been kind of above average, not great, the defense is still a vulnerable here and there. And so we'll see they have a couple more really good defenses to get through and I'm not completely convinced they will. So I think it's really going to be interesting to see how Ohio State does and how the big tines plays out. Bill Connelly always a pleasure, and we ended this conversation with without a food fight. So that's really an upset. Come back soon, bail. Thank you very much to college football writer for ESPN. We're heading to a break Shane beamer. We'll join us in a few minutes. He is the Victor and that.

"That of a conference. You'd rather have a situation where you got your permanent rivals. Big rotation top two teams make. The playoffs are the conference. So it makes it. It's headed dented. With with my thought blit is another reason to go down that road and it seemed like maybe there's progress in that regard. Is there any element to normalizing non-conference portion of the schedule. Obviously the nfl has their way where they have. These cross divisional match ups that they do essentially home in homes with a couple of years. You're i know you're a proponent of eight conference games across the board and it works well with pods because eventually everybody plays each other over the course of years or a couple years to three years but the non conference the schedule. Obviously it's good for the sports health for programs to get into the mix it's out. It's not the worst thing for teams to have a week to sort of get the emotion into the season. Whatever but what. What is your dream. Scenario for the non-conference portion schedule number of games. How the games are scheduled. How the game is you know. Are there ping pong balls where just the pac. Twelve draws the. Ac and they're like well as organ gonna play cincinnati or they're gonna play. Usf like is there. Is there an element. That appeals to you from the non-conference standpoint. Yeah i mean we've already passed this by but like the cool thing about twenty twenty football season. One of the few things about twenty twenty. Football season was byu and coastal. Hey you wanna play on saturday right corner. It's wednesday afternoon. You want to do this. We'll ask if they did it and it was the the number three game of the year at the end of the year and there is energy there was just. It was a fun match up the ravens. Seen like there are just so many awesome things about it and obviously i mean agassi. You're when you're selling season tickets. You want to be able to tell your home crowd who their plane. So you get too hard emma's role. But i just everybody loved it and i was hoping we could figure out a way to just introduce a little fewer. Hey alabama in boston. College are gonna play in twenty thirty four types of situations and season underway right back to that and it was. You know it's it's kind of frustrating diabe and it turned fifty three during that season by the way thank you. I appreciate that math update. Yeah of course yeah Doug flutie's gonna be like seven off but like i said that. Was you know in that commissioner platform. Those thing i talked about was the bracket buster idea where basically you know guidance. Ghetto games but you. You gotta leave one day to open each year lines about three weeks out or two weeks or even one week now. We know we know you can pull off a game of the week. you've got you know whether you're planning homer away but based on any number of different ways to separate teams out you. Yeah you basically depend on how your season is going on. You are drawn and opponent that is having a similar level of season so if you're a cincinnati and or ucf in two thousand seventeen where you've got an awesome team that has nobody to play You suddenly you're depending on your ranking suddenly now you've got home game against georgia and you get to prove yourself completely. Yeah oh my god ping pong balls please. The only be it would be an incredible ratings. Bonanza the draft lottery. Boy george clavicle on the case the pack my god if we just had that random show on god. I don't know when it would be october first or halloween or something like that. For the third. To last week of the season it would be a it. Would be a bonanza entertaining show. That would be all the best parts of twitter to buy reaction to that would be. It would be the draft lottery like times thirty or something and you have the cameras in the bars. Yeah that would be. It would be great. And i just wish there was like. We've seen what was forced on everybody last year and granted. Everybody handled it poorly in august but november. We started to kind of adapt and figure things out. I wish that would be part of his talking to be no final question and we'll bring it back to the twenty twenty one season We are now in july which means we now not only have previews we have takes. We have sports radio. We have tv. We have conversations around the twenty twenty one season are there conversations around teams in either direction where you're like. I'm sorry what this team or why is nobody. Can i mention this team in this conversation. Do you have those teams that are not like sleepers or overrated any language. Like that where you're just like. I don't know i don't think the conversation might be a little bit. Misguided around in either direction these What else use one. I mean some people are taking the plunge into study know what their back yard. So i can't really say a conventional wisdom kind of thing but that one's been kind of interesting i mean it's kinda hard to a degree because we i mean everybody kind of agrees like we know five of the top six so any of these conversations. It's gonna be like Number twelve that doesn't click here like wait necessarily but i will say based on last year. Sample I probably not taking wisconsin and penn. State seriously enough. They both had similar weird situations. Last year Wisconsin land small schedule looking great than taking a bunch of weeks often. You hugely rotated depth chart all those things worse than a lot of other schools like on paper might like my numbers love wisconsin because they're so liable to the time within also they return a lot of the guys who should have played more of a role last year but didn't digest day. They seem to have a definite top ten potential. Not real sure about that. Got the offensive coordinator. That probably wanted last year in my career. Said she scored forty points a game where he goes or thirty seven and they've got at least two really good receivers a veteran quarterback or not real sure what clippers is but he's probably got like top twenty. Qbr ceiling at the very least in lots of good running back. The defence is always top twenty so that seems like a pretty good recipe. My well another one that we all. We kinda have a hint break core. I at all times is miami. Yes lot along with the same kinda like taxation alive. I guess all you know again. We're bigger miami to do great things. We got a lot to offer this year more than they have and the only thing they lose from last year is basically two offensive ends but they always have create defense events so if they have to more this year than they don't really have a whole day definitely not top ten digital which lasted until it completely ran out of gas last. Two games so Those are some dude. Were probably does not. I'm not going to pretend any of them are like top three potential or anything but those are three teams probably are going to be better than we than our general assumptions. Think enough already. Bill connerly from espn. Enjoy the rest of the euro's you have to come back and talk soccer with me. Sheriff okay how about this. Who is your your number one. Tennis player under thirty. We wanna talk sports so the next gen. Yeah the newest next gen. Cdc poss- i mean tame can't stay on the court like who is the attitude deposits. The most well rounded obviously at a really weird month in and bowed out of wimbledon against the guy who already like fifteen grass court matches Boston's is gonna be awesome. He's the closest thing to federer of the next gen Just wonderfully well rounded. And i did get to write about. My boy said quarter this week. The task a soccer question. You can do that to pursue many soccer questions. So we're gonna we'll bring bill back on will just want. Us us men's team women's team opinion. Do you want a euros opinion. Tie you gotta give you.

"There's nothing specific about that video kids. That one was funny. Like all these serious things i had in there in the video. Game was the one that without a doubt. Yes yes read off too but Not only name image likeness but the group licensing the progress. That's been made it out. Regard seems like headed within a couple of years to to get in a video game. It's it's such a weird turn of events as it relates to the video game because we've had this conversation this show. I'm sure you've had it. You know countless times on your own bill. It is incredible to me that we're going to look back at that last version of the nc double a video game and when we tell the story of college football fifty years from now that video game is going to have such an outsized impact on the way things went as it relates to amateurism and just like so many different aspects of college football. We could never have predicted that back then but this is. This is where we're at now. Didn't really see that. Come on his planning ninety eight door right. We're on your ninety eight of our dynasty right like you could never have foreseen that it would have that kind of lasting impact that it has been in particular like not even was done madden tech can still play football on any video game platform that game. A particular in the dynasty mode specifically was just a even harbor game changer. Than i realized at the time when we were know staying up all night and it clan and t twenty twenty four. Whatever is riot in dorms. but yeah like dhawan. What else games are too damn long. That was another one of the Was so i was going to bring that up so the ones that i'm looking at that have been addressed in summer. Yard bringing back the video game expanding the playoff the student athlete. Bill of rights and amateurism. Those kind of have more together to some extent in recruiting right recruiting is kind of always in a state of being addressed. The four on here. That i wanted to talk through with you very quickly you have a couple of things related to scheduling so fixed scheduling by scrapping divisions and moving to like a pods setup which we can all throw him on the tweeted discuss of course yeah we have non conference scheduling and you labeled this get weird. This is introducing the concept of having like a bracket buster saturday sorts to maybe be a little bit more contextual as it relates to a season promotion relegation which. That's never going to happen and that will never happen. It's it's a ballsy effort. I love the idea. Somehow and this is this is a branch coming out from the trunk of promotion relegation. I love the idea in the way that and maybe we'll do an episode in the next couple of weeks about this that there are really intriguing elements of other sports right like at the top of f. one racing which i've really got gotten into. They have like a mid tier. I forget what the name of it is but like there's a legitimate battle for like number four right like everybody's like well look. We're not in the top three. But like we can be the best of the rest and be legitimately respected for it. There has to be some sort of weird elements as the top of the sports sort of pulls away recruiting wise champions while championship. Wise that we can say okay. But here's this other thing that we can take pride. Ms the very broad stroke but idea behind promotion-relegation is mic. This damn sport like actually merit based yoed as the example hours. Get like all most of these conferences are their membership is dictated primarily by who your friends were in nineteen thirty two and therefore kansas all gets to be a power conference team and boise state will never be power conference team Because they didn't have the right friends in nineteen thirty. Two boise state was a community college at that point but that plus geography. They're screwed no matter. How many how many things you do right in a row. You will never have the membership that the power conference membership that like. Wait for stutz and that sticks. I mean started d.c. fans but and wake forest is totally fine. They are totally. they're not kansas. But what you're saying. Get not cancer dire right right. Kansas dire But yeah like no matter. How many wrong things. Kansas doesn't erode their in the big twelve no matter what and You know it just kind of most you know. Obviously the promotion-relegation idea came from european soccer in your being soccer has don't have versus have nots. Problem it's not like it solves everything but the it was just the idea that this sport is just never has never been nearly merit based on often. We should figure out ways to do that. One of the things. I'm curious about. Yeah we're not gonna have promotion relegation but the one. When i don't remember what years was now. Getting time is not trying to Win the big twelve. The last two was thinking about expanding in there are strings houston along and then decided to not to do that after all but one of the things that were came about from that was what if the big twelve expanded to twenty four and was just too big twelve like you're just incorporate day a c. average just like a one conference promotion relegation thing based on like the you know you have to twelve team conferences the to go down the top two from the bottom. Come up within a structure. You could do that especially if we're going to be in an era our there's no such thing as power five where the six caught top conference champions. Get in agree. How fun with that like. The you wanna create a conference network where you always have inventory and always have something going on..

"When you look at year to year improvement is there a metric that you find teams outperform their expectations per s p plus and underperform expectations. Because like okay they. Their talent wasn't all that different. Their schedule is pretty typical. But there have a great shop or they're passing explosion rate. Shot up is there. Is there an perform under perform number that you tend to see well to flip that around the other way there are definitely the the numbers that good or bad last year whether you're whether espy plus accounts for them or not only does indirectly It's it's you know you've got plenty of those factors Turnovers equal turnaround writing off. My second order win. Totals and everything. You're looking at the post game. Win expectancy number that. I come up with but like it's it's really been because i mean every year somebody goes like six in one in one. Four games in their drastically over achieves its record in and you can but elliott deny as a nation for a long time tried to kind of isolate like what are the factors that go into that. Certain coach's car more likely to win close games over. Meyer always get outta bill. snyder always overachieved by one win per year. Compared to what i thought they should have had But what is it about. This is the ones that have really can always convert threes. They have a good kicker ryan. They're they're always in the oval range they can You're just some of those factors that was one of the things always talked about quarterbacks in good special teams Those two things can make at least a one win difference per year so that's always there are always those catch fire. Some of them do it too much. It's unsustainable but you do figure there's something in there regarding just the the little details the the middle eight always does well add and all those little things that you can just pretty a few more points per game And that's something that i don't think s probably account for nothing gets down that road but probably doesn't account for quite enough yet. Let's stick with coaches because you are so deep. Both with your previews and looking at the numbers all year long and watching the games that you watch it all goes into your brain stew. Are there any coordinators. That and i'm just talking purely from production and a lot more goes into either hiring the coordinator as a head coach or taking coordinator at a smaller place and making him a coordinator at a bigger place. Are there coordinators that whose name you repeatedly say who schools he repeatedly see. And you think to yourself somebody this guy somebody throw money at this human one of them's caskey at washington texas. He was one that i was have been interested in for a while. Obviously jimmy lake hopped his name in the pecking order for peterson replacement. But he's been associated with a lot of worthy really good defenses. Davalos is one yamaha and he went back to like the perfect spot for him. Obviously going back to boise state His defense wasn't even all that amazing last year but al. I'm very very confident that he's going to do. Well a boise state. He knows everything he needs to know there. let's see i had to pull up listings because iraq's guaranteed at somebody. Bloods well i remember. I remember seeing like todd. Orlando's name at utah state. many leg. he he would put together. The best rushing defense is year in and year out with his defense. And i and i remember tom. Herman hired him without ever having met him because his reputation preceded him and he actually put together some good defenses. You know had bad injury luck. They're all sorts of things that went into it. but now there are always those name like saudi. Somebody's gonna hire this guy. And i think with a lot of those guys like it's dombrowski ram if you don ryan too good cornerback. Super defensive ends doesn't really matter what else he has he's going to have a killer defense So maybe it's the same way with orlando he improved. Usc quite a bit there. Yeah great safeties and are at least one. Good cornerback at usc last year whereas your cortex is they're defensive. Backfield was a giant mess both in terms of injuries and development. So you'll maybe it is kinda like that you just each guy needs a couple of pieces a couple of items for him and he can make a good stew out of it so i along those lines like give the a couple of deep threats. Yeah he's got used them like that doesn't mean he's gonna he would be at grade Offensive coordinator liked I don i mean. I don't want to name the school that sued me now. But like you know if you go to a school where you got three hundred sixty pound lineman three good running backs but the receivers are all Slot possession guys. Maybe he doesn't really know what to do with that recipe. Get too deep threads quarterback throw a long way. He probably is going to score thirty points game. So that's kind of been interested. It was funny at the end of last year. With everything being so weird like when when guys did get fired and Coaching changes worse. Still made i didn't really have a list of my head of okay. This guy better get the get a job this year in. Maybe that's why we saw kind of a weird set of hires like the beamers of the world who didn't really The killer coordinator experience when it was. I mean everything else was so worried about twenty twenty. So that's not a surprise but y'all got to the road just didn't have a list of this guy has to get a head coaching job this year. Kind of names. Hey bill i've got in front of me in old article of yours going back to twenty seventeen so little over four years ago which you know we were all younger and more full of life back then. More naive sure. This is back in your estimation days. This was your bill connolly for college. Football commissioner piece. Yes and it's interesting on a number of levels because you had nine pillars nine things that you were including as part of your vision for college football by my count four four and a half five of them have actually been fixed now. Fixed is a relative term. Mind you addressed address. Thank you addressed. They've expanded the playoff now. You had advocated at the time for six to eight teams. There's a lot going on now as you know with. Nfl which could bring back the video game which was one of the things that you called out as well as modifying. What amateurism means. There's a tie in there with like a student athlete. Bill of rights recruiting has been tweaked along the way here. Where is the bill. C for be commissioner. At right now. How are you feeling like this. Campaigns been dormant. Let's say for a while but if you had the dust off the old vision statement. How are you feeling about the state of college football with some of the advances. We've heard. I feel like i'm a pretty good commissioner. Honestly mail it now obviously. Some of them were addressed in ways. That didn't necessarily in ten. Like we zoomed right past eight to twelve which still dislike twelve to play out but i still just rally That wasn't necessarily that. It was good now. I we're in a world war. Two thousand sixteen colorado goes to the playoff. And i just. I'm still wrapping my head around that a little bit but but no like the the modernizing amateurism thing. Obviously that work's not done by any means but we just we finally for years later like ten years after we all started talking about it like that that that hurdle has been cleared to some regard in the next year's cannes so much fun. Because everybody just gonna be throwing stuff at the wall half of. It's not gonna work that jim miami. That's gonna apparently start paying like six hundred thousand dollars a year to miami athletes. We'll see if that keeps up but That's gonna be the marketplace is going to be fascinated in kinda right itself. I'm sure we'll start to benefit alabama within a couple of years but still like that's that has been at least addressed in. We are finally going down that road and we can kinda put a tentative ax over that one. That one's been nice student athlete. Bill of rights thing was intended to kind of go down that same road and it was intended to not only cover name image likeness but just like long term healthcare in some of those things that ended up in it was. It was chris. Murphy is senate bill. That probably won't pass because there's a lot of other stuff that people will reject but Dow one just the healthcare aspect of things. Especially if you know even though the students get to make money now and that's awesome like just if we're really going to set us system up to teams playing seventeen games Up to seventeen games like we the healthcare aspect of things to very much bees specifically addressed in this case to whether it's just like insurance whether it's a medical trust fund.

Pressure Builds Over Restrictive Voting Bills in Texas

"Prominent Texas corporations this week joined the call to protect voting rights, and that drew a verbal tirade from Governor Greg Abbott. We have American airlines, we have a TNT. We have a Dell computers away and others who have taken a position against the election law reforms we met in the state of Texas work, the C E O tzar of these companies and the leaders of these companies admitted. I had no idea what the Texas lost said, or whether Texas proposed law say before taking a position against it. They need to stay out of politics, especially when they have no clue what they're talking about. Grassroots opposition to these bills continues to grow on Thursday about 100 voting rights activists gathered outside the 18 T corporate headquarters in downtown Dallas. As Kate, You're raised.

Why Some Texas Residents Now Face Huge Electricity Bills

"Think for a moment about that. Famous survey suggesting that many people would struggle to pay an emergency expense of even a few hundred dollars now think about texas where some people suddenly have utility bills in the thousands of dollars. It's a side effect of last week's storm that overcame the power grid. People who managed to keep their power are now paying for it. Christopher connelly is with member station k. e. r. a. in and joins us. Now good morning. Hi steve what's an example of the kind of costs that people face right so well. I talked to shannon mars. She has one of those big bills. She lives in frisco which is a dallas suburb with her husband. Mike and three kids in january. They paid two hundred fifty seven bucks for electricity and as of saturday. The families electric bill for the month of february was ten thousand one hundred eighty dollars and seventy six cents during those real. Yeah during those really cold days last week. The marches were paying one or two thousand dollars a day for electricity shannon. Maher said it makes her sick to her stomach to think about it too awful and there's nothing you can do and i've been really stressed about it and ten thousand dollars is a ton of money. I guess you gotta explain the texas system here. Because i get a utility bill. I pay the utility bill. I don't even necessarily know what my costs four day is. How does this even happen right. So this is wonky but but bear with me here so. Texas has a deregulated market for electricity. It is designed so that when there's a shortage of electricity of the price will go up in power. Companies will have an incentive to generate more electricity that deregulated market also for the sale of unusual policies. Like the ones. The mars is have plans with variable rates for electricity and those are the customers who are ending up with these sky high bills. The mars family spent hours trying to switch to a different company last week to find one with a more traditional fixed rate plan and normally they would be able to do that but the storm made that impossible so they were just sitting there watching the charges on their credit. Cards rack up. Does this suggest that this deregulation doesn't work well. It works great when the weather's good but you know it appears that there weren't market incentives in this market system for power providers to make sure that they were prepared to weather a massive winter storm. There have been warnings about that for years. Actually and the system broke down almost exactly like this about a decade ago. You know the other issue that we're seeing is that. The deregulated system assumes that consumers will fend for themselves that they'll find electricity plan where they won't get hosed if a big storm rolls in cable weight from the consumer rights group public citizen says. That just doesn't really happen. In reality people have a lot of different things tugging at their attention and their bandwidth and so a lot of our economic decisions are actually made on autopilot and therefore all these theories like that. We will shop for the cheapest and best plan for ourselves. They don't play out state trying to help. Now yeah so. There will be hearings looking into the issue. This week governor greg. Abbott says no one should have to pay these exorbitant bills and yesterday the public utilities commission temporarily blocked companies from sending out bills or shutting off customers power for non-payment abbots also saying that the state will force power plants to weather is so they're prepared for the next storm. I got to say this. Level of government intervention feels anathema to the way republicans have governed this state for decades. But there is so much political pressure right now to make changes because even as people are just starting to repair burst pipes and get the water running again. Christopher colleague of kera.

Mike yesterday's Dr Mark Hoffman, who is a research associate professor in the University of Minnesota Against City. He is also chief research inflammation officer in the children's Mussa hospital in Kansas City. Kiss research interests include health data delayed indication sharing initialisation Boca Mark. Thank you for inviting me. Absolutely. So I start with one of your papers Kato you need the use by our system implementation in defy date data resource from hundred known athlete off my seasons. So Michio inflicted. Data aggregated for marketable sources provide an important resource for my medical research including digital feel typing. On. Like. Todd beat to from a single organization. Guitar data introduces a number of analysis challengers. So. So you've worked with some augmentation log and in almost all cases be used. Data coming from that single macy's listen primary care behavioral. Or specialty hospitals and I always wondered you know wouldn't be nice. Get a data set. That sort of abrogates data from the radio on-ice. Asians but a lot of different challenges around that. So you wanted to talk a bit about that. I'd be happy to the resource that we've worked with. Is primarily a called health fax data resource. It's been in operation for almost twenty years. And the the the model is that organizations who are. Using these Turner Electronic. Health. Record. Enter into an agreement was turner they agreed to provide data rights to sern are. The identifies the date of affords aggregated into this resource. And certner provides data mapping, which is really critical to this type of work. It also the aggregate the data. And for the past probably six years. Then, they provide the full data set to especially academic contributors who want to do research with that resource. And I've been on both sides of that equation Lead that group during my career there, and then now I have the opportunity to really focus research on that type of data. So before we get into the details smog so e Itar Systems. So this is. Essentially patient records. So he gets dated like demographics out family history, surgical history hats, medications, lab solves it could have physician nodes no snow. So it's it's a combination of a variety of different types of data, right? A couple of things on the examples you gave it includes demographics. Discreet Laboratory results Medication orders. Many vitals so If access the blood pressure and pulse data. It does not include text notes because those can't be. Automatically identified consistently. So. We don't have access currently to TEX notes. Out of an abundance of caution. That his Hobby Stephen, physician writes something down they could use names they could use inflammation that could then point back to their. Patients Makita Perspective been the data's aggregated, the primary issue shoe that date has completely the identified, right? Correct. So. So yeah. So the data that we receive there's eighteen identifiers. Hip requires be removed from data. And those include obvious things like name address email addresses are another example One of the. Things. That is also part of the benefit of working with this particular resource. The. Dates of clinical service are not allowed to be provided under hip. White is done with this resource that allows us to still have a longitudinal view is. For any given patient in the data set the dates are shifted by A. Consistent. Pattern that for any given patient it can be. One two three four five weeks forward or one, two, three, four or five weeks backward. But that preserves things like day of the week effect. So for example, you see -nificant increase in emergency department encounters over weekends and you don't WanNa lose. Visibility to that. but it also allows us to receive. Very, granular early time stamped events in so. We can gain visibility into the time that a blood specimen was collected, and then the time that the result was reported back. And so we're able to do very detailed analyses with this type of resource. Right right and I don't know the audience our market is fragmented. Tau himself e Amorebieta providers out there. and so two issues. One is sort of. Standardization as to how these databases are designed and structured and others even that standardization that the actual collection of the data. In itself is not standardized played. So vk CAV vk potentially lot inability coming from different systems. Correct and that's part of what the paper that you mentioned Evaluates so. Often, night you out in the field in conferences you hear. Comparisons kind of lumping all organizations using one. Vendor lumping all using another together but as you get closer to it, you quickly learn that. It's not even clear. It's within those. Vendor markets. There's variation from organization to organization in how they use the e Hr and so. Because the identities of the. Contributing organizations are blinded to those of us who work with the data. We have to be creative about how we. Infer those implementation details, and so with this paper, we describe a couple of methods that We think move things forward towards that goal. Yes. So I'm not really familiar with that. So you mentioned a couple of things here. One is the the merge network. So this initiative including electric medical records and genomics network and pc off net the national patient, centered clinical research network support. Decentralized analyses that goes disparate systems by distributing standardized quotas to site. So this is a situation where you have multiple systems sort of. Communicating with each other and this net folks at allowing to sort of quickly them In some standardized fashion. So In this type of technology, there's janitorial core models. One is the. Federated or distributed model, the other is a centralized data aggregation. So there are examples including those that are mentioned in the paper where. Queries are pushed to the organization and. They need to do significant work upfront to ensure that there are standardizing their terminologies the same way. And once they do that upfront work than they're able to perform the types of queries that are distributed through those. Federated Networks. With. Okay. So that just one click on so that the police have standardized. So all on the at Josh site, then they have like some sort of a plan slater from from Stan Day squatty do all the data structure. And in many cases, they work through an intermediate technology. that would be. In general, consider it like a data warehouse. And so the queries are running against the production electric. Health record. That has all kinds of implications on patient care where you don't want to slow down performance. By using these intermediaries They can receive queries and then Follow that mapping has occurred. Than, they're able to to run those distributed queries. Okay. And the other model is You know. You say the g through the medical quality, improvement consortium and sooner to the health facts initiative. So this says in Sodas case, for example, in swags. This is essentially picking up data from the right deals, clients and Dan standardizing and centralizing data in a single database is that that is correct. One benefit of that model is that Organizations who for example, may not be academic and don't have the. Resources to do that data mapping themselves by handing out over that task over to the vendor you get a broader diversity of the types of organizations so you can have. A safety net hospitals you can have. Critical access rural hospitals, and other venues of care that are probably under represented in some of those. More academically driven models. And clearly the focus on healthcare about I would imagine applications in pharmaceutical out indeed to right I. Don't know if it s use and bad direction there has been some were performed with these data resources to. Characterize different aspects of medications, and so it does have utility in value. In a variety of. Analytical contexts. I was thinking about you know a lot of randomized clinical trials going on into Kuwait context and One of the issues of dispatch seem development toils that are going on that one could argue the population there are not really well to percents. it may be number by Auditees, men, people that deputy existing conditions. and. So he will serve at my come out of facedly trial. granted might work for the population. Tried it minority have sufficient? more largely. So I wanted this type of well I guess we don't really have an ID there right. So clearly, you don't know who these people are but they could be some clustering type analysis that might be interesting weight from It's very useful for Health Services Research and for outcomes research for you know what I characterize digital phenotype being. they can then guide. More, more formal research. you know you can use this type of resource to. Make sure. You're asking a useful question and make sure that there's likely to be. Enough patients who qualify for given study. Maybe you're working on a clinical trial in your casting your net to narrow you can. Determine that with this type of data resource. And is the eight tiff date who has access to it typically. So for this data resource on, it's through the vendor so. You need to have some level of footprint with them. which is the case with our organization. They're definitely a broadening their strategies. So they're. Gaining access into health systems that aren't exclusively using their electronic health records so. It's exciting to be a part of that that process. and to again work with them to. Analyze the data. I think. To the example you gave a formal randomized trials. In key part of what were growing our research to focus on is because this is real world data. You learn what's happening in practice whether or not it's well aligned with guidelines or formal protocols. And doing that there's many opportunities for near-term interventions that can improve health outcomes simply by. Identifying where providers may be deviating more from. Best Practices in than taking steps through training and education to kind of get them back towards those best practices. This data is a fresh on a daily basis. It's not. It's because it's so large and bulky? Typically we've received it on a quarterly basis in since it's retrospective analysis that's not been a major barrier. But. mechanistically, on onto soon aside is data getting sort of picked up from this system that it's harvested every day and then it's aggregated bundled and distributed on A. On a different timescale. Okay okay. So. From again, going to the, it's our system designed issue and implementation You say many HR systems comprised of more news at specific clinical processes or unit such as Pharmacy Laboratory or surgery talked about that. But then then people implement them this of fashion right they they implement modules by that can be a factor or sometimes they may want. One vendor for their primary electronic health record, but another vendor for their laboratory system. and so that's where you don't see a hundred percent usage of every module and every organization. And detailed number of different you know sort of noise creating issues in data one. This is icy speech over from ICT denied ten. and I don't know history of this but this was supposed to be speech with sometime in twenty fifteen. That's correct. So there is A. You know. There's a date in October of Twenty fifteen where most organizations were expected to have completed that transition. When I see with researchers who aren't as familiar with the you know the whole policy landscape around `electronic health records that? you can imagine researchers who assumed that all data before that date in October is is nine and all data after that date would be icy the ten. While we demonstrate in this paper, is that that transition was not Nearly, that clean and it was a much more, you know there are some organizations who just It the bullet and completed in twenty fourteen, and there are other organizations that were still lagging. In. Two Thousand Sixteen. Potentially because they weren't as exposed to those incentives in other things that you know stipulated the transition so. Part of why were demonstrating with that particular part of that work was that. you know these transitions aren't always abrupt. Yeah and and and so that is one issue and then you know a lot of consistency inconsistency issues fade. So we see that in in single systems and one of the items note here as you know if you think about the disposition code for death. you could have a right your race supercenter, right? It's a death expire expedite at home hospice, and so on. if this is a problem for a single system, but then many think about aggregating data from multiple sources this this problem sort of increased exponentially. Absolutely. So one of the challenges with documenting and and finding where you know if a patient has A deceased that. There's just multiple places to put that documentation in the clinical record. The Location in the record that. We have found to be the most consistent is what's called discharge disposition. By as we show in that analysis, that field is not always used document that and so if you're doing outcomes research and one of your key. Outcome metrics is death. And there are organizations that. Aren't documenting death in a place that successful. You should filter those out of your analysis before moving forward. And so part of what we wanted to promote is the realization that. That's the type of consideration that needs to be made The four. Publishing. Your data about an outcome metrics like death that. You're not. If you're never gonNA see that outcome it doesn't mean that people are. Dying in that particular facility, it just means it's not documented in the place that successful. Right. Yeah. So you know you on your expedience. Unique Position Mark because you you look at it from the from the vendor's perspective you're in an academic setting you're also in practice in a hospital. What's your sense of these things improving the on a track of getting getting this more standardize or it's camping in the other direction I think in general there is improvement I think The. Over the past eleven years through various federal mandates, including meaningful use and so forth. Those of all incentive organizations to utilize. Standard terminologies more consistently than was the case beforehand. I think there's still plenty of room for improvement and You know it's it's a journey, not a destination, but I think things have improved substantially. I was wondering there could be some applications of artificial intelligence here to In a clearly TATECO systems and you'd like the most them pity human resource intensive Yvonne to get it completely right. So one question would be you know, could be actually used a Dick needs to get it maybe ninety nine percent white. And that the human deal with exceptions I definitely think that that's an exciting direction that You want those a algorithms to be trained with good data, and that's a big part of what's motivated us to. Put this focus on data quality and Understanding these strange nuances that are underpinning that date has so that. As we move towards a in machine learning and so forth. We have a high level of confidence in the data that's training those algorithms. Right. Yeah. I think that a huge opportunity here because it's not quite as broad as NFL, not natural language processing it is somewhat constrained. that is a good part of it. The back part of it is that is highly technical. and so. you know some of the techniques you know you can have a fault tolerance in certain dimensions such as you know, misspellings lack of gambling and things like that. But as you have Heidi technical data, you cannot apply those principles because he could have misspelling the system may not be able to. Get, sometimes, and that's where you know I think. It's totally feasible to use. Resources to you know when you're dealing with. Tens of millions of patients and billions of detailed records. Using a I'd even identify those patterns of either. Inconsistent data or missing data it's also very powerful just to. kind of flag in identified. Areas that need to be focused on to lead to a better analysis. Greg Wait Be Hefty. Use that information somehow did is a belt of information that you know and so it just filtering into decision processes that the are really losing it. So hopefully getting improving in that dimension I've jumping to another paper bittersweet interesting. So it's entitled rates and predictors of using opioids in the Emergency Department Katrina Treat Mike Dean in Young Otto's and so so this is sort of a machine learning exercise you have gone through to locate you know coup is getting prescribed. OPIOIDS water the conditions for the Democrat not Nestle demographics but different different maybe age and things like that gender. and and then ask the question desert has some effect on addiction. In the long term rights. So that project To great example of team science though. We. Assembled a team of subject matter experts in neurology pain management. And Data Science and. The neurologist and pain management experts. Identified an intriguing question that we decided to pursue with data. In their question was. Based on anecdotal observation and so we thought it'd be interesting to see how well the data supported that. Observation is that. for youth and young adults Treated or admitted into the emergency. Department. With a migraine headache that. All too often they were treated with an opioid. And so we Use the same day to resource that we were discussing earlier. To explore that. Question. And using data from a hundred and eighty distinct emergency departments. We found that on average twenty, three percent of those youth and young adults were treated with. An opioid medication while they were in the emergency department. In general, it should be almost zero percent in general. There's really Better medications to us, four people presenting with a migraine. and. So this fits into obviously the OPIOID crisis it. it demonstrates the. Scenario describing that. You know using real world data. You can identify patterns of clinical behavior that. Don't match guideline. And the good news is that the? correctable and so through. Training and communication there's great opportunity to. To, manage this. Really. Striking. So fifteen thousand or so inevitably the encounters. And nearly a quarter of this encounters you say involved inoculate. and these are not just Misha and Congress right. It is not filtered down to migraine encounters. Okay. Okay. So these fifteen thousand just might in encounters might vein being repeating disease So once you. If you make a statement and. This or not Easter conditioning issue here. So you get your pain, you go to an emergency department and you get treated with an opioid you get quick tactical relief. From pain. auditing condition expect that in the next episode. So you can say we didn't pursue that particular question, but that is Definitely key part of. Managing the OPIOID crisis is that drug seeking behavior and so Part of our goal was to quantify that and use this as an opportunity to educate providers that. You really shouldn't be treating migraines with an opioid in there are better alternatives and. So we we felt that this was an important contribution to that national dialogue, but we didn't specifically pursue the question of whether the patients we analyzed. Within. Encounter show up Subsequently. With the same symptoms. Right right. Yeah you it develop into period when problematic patterns of drug use comedy. FEST MERGE THE PREVALENCE RATE OF OPIOID misuse estimated to be two to four percent and debts in each goofy just young adult drew from overdoses are rising. and. You say that literally prescribe IOS has been slumping loose future opioid misuse by thirty three percent. Betas Mehta say really huge number. I think just validates the importance of this of this work. Interesting mark. I don't know you exploded on data. Last the question if you look at the aggregate data, it'd be flying opioid. Misuse. what percentage of the total number. Actually started from. You know some sort of medical encounter has mike or some sort of. related encounter that could be completed otherwise was three a bit opioid. in that encounter documented resulted in that misuse. So what so If you look at the active misuse problem that we have today. do you have a sense of what percentage of that goal is actually started I? Think the exciting thing about this type of research is for everyone questioned that you pursue you have. You have ten new that you can pursue. We haven't. Delved into that specific area, but it's It's very ripe for further analysis and A considerable part of where I end my colleagues and our time as. We do this type of work to get an initial analysis published. And then You know in my leadership role I just WANNA. support people like my colleagues on this paper Mark Connelly Jennifer Bickel. in in using data to. Support their research into identify those follow. I mean, he tests policy implications. So it's sweet important work. and. If you find it direct relationship here than you have to ask you know from from a medical perspective what is right intervention? maybe is not just added of care just best practice but clearly should be the bay You know things should be looked at you say you're American Academy of Neurology has included avoidance of using opioid to treat gain one of stop top flight choosing wisely recommendations. For high-value duck in this gives Really evidence to to support that. The other thing that's really intriguing is this level of variation from site to site in. Some Sun facilities are very much aligned with the guidelines. Others are at the you know well, above twenty three percent. And that gives an opportunity for a really precision. conversations about you know, where does our organization stand on that spectrum? Yeah that's a that's an interesting avenue to right. So you know one could ask he says some sort of push sliced Intervention if we can fly goal of patients who who had gone an opioid sexually don't have an addiction problem. that as you know Anna, the kofoed does. if you can fly those type of patterns than you can think about. A customized within electronic health record systems. There's. The ability to provide decisions poor. There's certainly phenomena called pop up fatigue were physicians. You know they don't like having so many pop up windows but at the same time. It's Within the capability of an e e Hr to do that if then logic if patient has. migraine medication order equals opioid. encourage the provider to pause and reconsider that. Right, right and so this is supervised machine learning type analysis where so you have. you have number features that comes directly from each else. So each sex race ethnicity. insurance type. Encounter prostate suggest duration. time of the year and so on. and you have labeled data in this case I guess you have able tater because you would know if op- inscribed on trade. Okay and so are the two questions here. One is to ask the question given a new patient and those features. you could assign a probability that that patient will be prescribed will. Definitely. Impress the data from that predictive Minds. Right and then can you so that data definitely tell you if the patient is going to progress into some sort of an addiction issue. So. Earn Predicting Substance Abuse. So. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. There's additional diagnosis codes that document. whether a patient has a history of substance abuse disorder. and. So it would be feasible to. Identify the with those diagnosis codes in than really look at their prior history. Of What other conditions were they treated for? What medications were they give in? to develop that model. One of the things in this case that helped with this study is that just in general, it's not advised get. So there are other things that are much more of a gray area. Or whether opioid is as useful, but in this case. The really not. Considered. To be helpful for migraines compared to other options and so that help us have a fairly clear cut scenario to do this work. Yeah. This this won't be the data like you say once you do something like this, you have been other things you could. You could stop asking. So unquestioned that that been to my mind as you know, how did they hugged the actually prescribing opioids? Is it the patient asking for it all so? Off that was another scoping thing with this project is focused on what happens within the emergency. Room. So it's it's. Really, medication order in administration that happens. In that emergency room setting. Whether or not the patient. was. Requesting that you know if they came in and said, this has worked for me before. Can I have it again? we don't have visibility to that. Right. Right. And so from a practical perspective So the the analysis that you did slightly ended up with the Family Clyde power we think it is. Compelling. Pretty compelling. So as as a new patient gets into e D either high. and what I mean by that probably is if there is a history of substance abuse property. the physician has really think twice about. The use of may be the well, and in this case, even without that history. Just because it's not considered to be an effective treatment. You know encouraging them to pause in that decision making. In this particular case is as effective as wall. Right. So looking forward. In if you think about both of these issues, one is the data quality data aggregation data standardized recent problem in the the right of Utah Systems have did that the talked about? And then if we can get to a level that we can look at cross a large data set. Beacon, ask. More. US specific questions, treatment. Optimum treatment type questions. subpoenaed. US The mark big think B be hunting. Certainly, the volume and variety of data that we're able to work with will be even greater I, think the. Opportunity To. Look, holistically at how upstream data capture. Effects Downstream data. Analysis. example I frequently give is if we have a Aggregate Data said we identify. Ten patients whose way in that data such shows up as being. Something that's completely infeasible. let's say they're documented is being. Fifty year old person who weighs two pounds. Clearly air. What's important is? Creating the process to communicate that back upstream. Because that clinical decision. Support. Many drug dosing things are evaluated using weight based logic and so. That same logic that's Evaluating the appropriateness of dosage. It's going to be running against an incorrect value in that may or may not always be visible. So I really am intrigued with that holistic opportunity. In it I am I remain just we have three or four additional papers coming out. About other examples where Provider behaviors not aligned with Best Practices and I'm just excited about you know when you compare that to how long it takes to develop a new drug or how long it takes to. To a really long term research. This research has the opportunity for a pretty quick turnaround on an effective intervention. A really that. Other so much that right. Providers. been taught in a no, but they're. Not always using that in practice and so to help them. Identify, those topics in just modifying behaviors is. In the scheme of things, it's a very straightforward way to improve. So. You know the entire spectrum from essentially getting the data. Right or cleaner like you know Missa mischaracterized or miss input data like wait or something like that. To to get. Better diagnosis better treatment modalities. policies there and from a femme perspective clearly inflammation therefore clinical trials. I was even thinking about drug interaction type. Inflammation. I haven't been involved in the former de for awhile but. Typically, this type of data doesn't get back into automatic processes that fast but I think that is all I know there's strong interest in Pharma in. Working with this type of data there a again looking at real world behavior. This is an excellent resource for off label medication use at. you know where Pharma's Always interested in repurposing existing medications the. Regulatory Processes, much more straightforward for that because the safety is already been. Evaluated and so. The. Significant Opportunity With this, there's also just exciting. Patterns of you know. What are those unrecognised correlations? That's where the machine learning opportunities are really exciting where. You know we're not always asking the right question. And the data can show us what we should be. Yeah exactly. So if the machine a sort of red flags something or create hypotheses. that Cubans have missed sometimes, those types of things are extremely powerful. because maybe that sometimes it's countering tutor. and so we all look at data with an Incan bias. The beauty of machines that at least on the surface began deploy Michigan. This volume of data. Techniques like machine deep learning can recognize those subtle but consistent associations. Wait quite. Excellent. Idea this has been great mark Thanks so much time with me. I enjoyed it very much. Thank you. But

Mike yesterday's Dr Mark Hoffman, who is a research associate professor in the University of Minnesota Against City. He is also chief research inflammation officer in the children's Mussa hospital in Kansas City. Kiss research interests include health data delayed indication sharing initialisation Boca Mark. Thank you for inviting me. Absolutely. So I start with one of your papers Kato you need the use by our system implementation in defy date data resource from hundred known athlete off my seasons. So Michio inflicted. Data aggregated for marketable sources provide an important resource for my medical research including digital feel typing. On. Like. Todd beat to from a single organization. Guitar data introduces a number of analysis challengers. So. So you've worked with some augmentation log and in almost all cases be used. Data coming from that single macy's listen primary care behavioral. Or specialty hospitals and I always wondered you know wouldn't be nice. Get a data set. That sort of abrogates data from the radio on-ice. Asians but a lot of different challenges around that. So you wanted to talk a bit about that. I'd be happy to the resource that we've worked with. Is primarily a called health fax data resource. It's been in operation for almost twenty years. And the the the model is that organizations who are. Using these Turner Electronic. Health. Record. Enter into an agreement was turner they agreed to provide data rights to sern are. The identifies the date of affords aggregated into this resource. And certner provides data mapping, which is really critical to this type of work. It also the aggregate the data. And for the past probably six years. Then, they provide the full data set to especially academic contributors who want to do research with that resource. And I've been on both sides of that equation Lead that group during my career there, and then now I have the opportunity to really focus research on that type of data. So before we get into the details smog so e Itar Systems. So this is. Essentially patient records. So he gets dated like demographics out family history, surgical history hats, medications, lab solves it could have physician nodes no snow. So it's it's a combination of a variety of different types of data, right? A couple of things on the examples you gave it includes demographics. Discreet Laboratory results Medication orders. Many vitals so If access the blood pressure and pulse data. It does not include text notes because those can't be. Automatically identified consistently. So. We don't have access currently to TEX notes. Out of an abundance of caution. That his Hobby Stephen, physician writes something down they could use names they could use inflammation that could then point back to their. Patients Makita Perspective been the data's aggregated, the primary issue shoe that date has completely the identified, right? Correct. So. So yeah. So the data that we receive there's eighteen identifiers. Hip requires be removed from data. And those include obvious things like name address email addresses are another example One of the. Things. That is also part of the benefit of working with this particular resource. The. Dates of clinical service are not allowed to be provided under hip. White is done with this resource that allows us to still have a longitudinal view is. For any given patient in the data set the dates are shifted by A. Consistent. Pattern that for any given patient it can be. One two three four five weeks forward or one, two, three, four or five weeks backward. But that preserves things like day of the week effect. So for example, you see -nificant increase in emergency department encounters over weekends and you don't WanNa lose. Visibility to that. but it also allows us to receive. Very, granular early time stamped events in so. We can gain visibility into the time that a blood specimen was collected, and then the time that the result was reported back. And so we're able to do very detailed analyses with this type of resource. Right right and I don't know the audience our market is fragmented. Tau himself e Amorebieta providers out there. and so two issues. One is sort of. Standardization as to how these databases are designed and structured and others even that standardization that the actual collection of the data. In itself is not standardized played. So vk CAV vk potentially lot inability coming from different systems. Correct and that's part of what the paper that you mentioned Evaluates so. Often, night you out in the field in conferences you hear. Comparisons kind of lumping all organizations using one. Vendor lumping all using another together but as you get closer to it, you quickly learn that. It's not even clear. It's within those. Vendor markets. There's variation from organization to organization in how they use the e Hr and so. Because the identities of the. Contributing organizations are blinded to those of us who work with the data. We have to be creative about how we. Infer those implementation details, and so with this paper, we describe a couple of methods that We think move things forward towards that goal. Yes. So I'm not really familiar with that. So you mentioned a couple of things here. One is the the merge network. So this initiative including electric medical records and genomics network and pc off net the national patient, centered clinical research network support. Decentralized analyses that goes disparate systems by distributing standardized quotas to site. So this is a situation where you have multiple systems sort of. Communicating with each other and this net folks at allowing to sort of quickly them In some standardized fashion. So In this type of technology, there's janitorial core models. One is the. Federated or distributed model, the other is a centralized data aggregation. So there are examples including those that are mentioned in the paper where. Queries are pushed to the organization and. They need to do significant work upfront to ensure that there are standardizing their terminologies the same way. And once they do that upfront work than they're able to perform the types of queries that are distributed through those. Federated Networks. With. Okay. So that just one click on so that the police have standardized. So all on the at Josh site, then they have like some sort of a plan slater from from Stan Day squatty do all the data structure. And in many cases, they work through an intermediate technology. that would be. In general, consider it like a data warehouse. And so the queries are running against the production electric. Health record. That has all kinds of implications on patient care where you don't want to slow down performance. By using these intermediaries They can receive queries and then Follow that mapping has occurred. Than, they're able to to run those distributed queries. Okay. And the other model is You know. You say the g through the medical quality, improvement consortium and sooner to the health facts initiative. So this says in Sodas case, for example, in swags. This is essentially picking up data from the right deals, clients and Dan standardizing and centralizing data in a single database is that that is correct. One benefit of that model is that Organizations who for example, may not be academic and don't have the. Resources to do that data mapping themselves by handing out over that task over to the vendor you get a broader diversity of the types of organizations so you can have. A safety net hospitals you can have. Critical access rural hospitals, and other venues of care that are probably under represented in some of those. More academically driven models. And clearly the focus on healthcare about I would imagine applications in pharmaceutical out indeed to right I. Don't know if it s use and bad direction there has been some were performed with these data resources to. Characterize different aspects of medications, and so it does have utility in value. In a variety of. Analytical contexts. I was thinking about you know a lot of randomized clinical trials going on into Kuwait context and One of the issues of dispatch seem development toils that are going on that one could argue the population there are not really well to percents. it may be number by Auditees, men, people that deputy existing conditions. and. So he will serve at my come out of facedly trial. granted might work for the population. Tried it minority have sufficient? more largely. So I wanted this type of well I guess we don't really have an ID there right. So clearly, you don't know who these people are but they could be some clustering type analysis that might be interesting weight from It's very useful for Health Services Research and for outcomes research for you know what I characterize digital phenotype being. they can then guide. More, more formal research. you know you can use this type of resource to. Make sure. You're asking a useful question and make sure that there's likely to be. Enough patients who qualify for given study. Maybe you're working on a clinical trial in your casting your net to narrow you can. Determine that with this type of data resource. And is the eight tiff date who has access to it typically. So for this data resource on, it's through the vendor so. You need to have some level of footprint with them. which is the case with our organization. They're definitely a broadening their strategies. So they're. Gaining access into health systems that aren't exclusively using their electronic health records so. It's exciting to be a part of that that process. and to again work with them to. Analyze the data. I think. To the example you gave a formal randomized trials. In key part of what were growing our research to focus on is because this is real world data. You learn what's happening in practice whether or not it's well aligned with guidelines or formal protocols. And doing that there's many opportunities for near-term interventions that can improve health outcomes simply by. Identifying where providers may be deviating more from. Best Practices in than taking steps through training and education to kind of get them back towards those best practices. This data is a fresh on a daily basis. It's not. It's because it's so large and bulky? Typically we've received it on a quarterly basis in since it's retrospective analysis that's not been a major barrier. But. mechanistically, on onto soon aside is data getting sort of picked up from this system that it's harvested every day and then it's aggregated bundled and distributed on A. On a different timescale. Okay okay. So. From again, going to the, it's our system designed issue and implementation You say many HR systems comprised of more news at specific clinical processes or unit such as Pharmacy Laboratory or surgery talked about that. But then then people implement them this of fashion right they they implement modules by that can be a factor or sometimes they may want. One vendor for their primary electronic health record, but another vendor for their laboratory system. and so that's where you don't see a hundred percent usage of every module and every organization. And detailed number of different you know sort of noise creating issues in data one. This is icy speech over from ICT denied ten. and I don't know history of this but this was supposed to be speech with sometime in twenty fifteen. That's correct. So there is A. You know. There's a date in October of Twenty fifteen where most organizations were expected to have completed that transition. When I see with researchers who aren't as familiar with the you know the whole policy landscape around `electronic health records that? you can imagine researchers who assumed that all data before that date in October is is nine and all data after that date would be icy the ten. While we demonstrate in this paper, is that that transition was not Nearly, that clean and it was a much more, you know there are some organizations who just It the bullet and completed in twenty fourteen, and there are other organizations that were still lagging. In. Two Thousand Sixteen. Potentially because they weren't as exposed to those incentives in other things that you know stipulated the transition so. Part of why were demonstrating with that particular part of that work was that. you know these transitions aren't always abrupt. Yeah and and and so that is one issue and then you know a lot of consistency inconsistency issues fade. So we see that in in single systems and one of the items note here as you know if you think about the disposition code for death. you could have a right your race supercenter, right? It's a death expire expedite at home hospice, and so on. if this is a problem for a single system, but then many think about aggregating data from multiple sources this this problem sort of increased exponentially. Absolutely. So one of the challenges with documenting and and finding where you know if a patient has A deceased that. There's just multiple places to put that documentation in the clinical record. The Location in the record that. We have found to be the most consistent is what's called discharge disposition. By as we show in that analysis, that field is not always used document that and so if you're doing outcomes research and one of your key. Outcome metrics is death. And there are organizations that. Aren't documenting death in a place that successful. You should filter those out of your analysis before moving forward. And so part of what we wanted to promote is the realization that. That's the type of consideration that needs to be made The four. Publishing. Your data about an outcome metrics like death that. You're not. If you're never gonNA see that outcome it doesn't mean that people are. Dying in that particular facility, it just means it's not documented in the place that successful. Right. Yeah. So you know you on your expedience. Unique Position Mark because you you look at it from the from the vendor's perspective you're in an academic setting you're also in practice in a hospital. What's your sense of these things improving the on a track of getting getting this more standardize or it's camping in the other direction I think in general there is improvement I think The. Over the past eleven years through various federal mandates, including meaningful use and so forth. Those of all incentive organizations to utilize. Standard terminologies more consistently than was the case beforehand. I think there's still plenty of room for improvement and You know it's it's a journey, not a destination, but I think things have improved substantially. I was wondering there could be some applications of artificial intelligence here to In a clearly TATECO systems and you'd like the most them pity human resource intensive Yvonne to get it completely right. So one question would be you know, could be actually used a Dick needs to get it maybe ninety nine percent white. And that the human deal with exceptions I definitely think that that's an exciting direction that You want those a algorithms to be trained with good data, and that's a big part of what's motivated us to. Put this focus on data quality and Understanding these strange nuances that are underpinning that date has so that. As we move towards a in machine learning and so forth. We have a high level of confidence in the data that's training those algorithms. Right. Yeah. I think that a huge opportunity here because it's not quite as broad as NFL, not natural language processing it is somewhat constrained. that is a good part of it. The back part of it is that is highly technical. and so. you know some of the techniques you know you can have a fault tolerance in certain dimensions such as you know, misspellings lack of gambling and things like that. But as you have Heidi technical data, you cannot apply those principles because he could have misspelling the system may not be able to. Get, sometimes, and that's where you know I think. It's totally feasible to use. Resources to you know when you're dealing with. Tens of millions of patients and billions of detailed records. Using a I'd even identify those patterns of either. Inconsistent data or missing data it's also very powerful just to. kind of flag in identified. Areas that need to be focused on to lead to a better analysis. Greg Wait Be Hefty. Use that information somehow did is a belt of information that you know and so it just filtering into decision processes that the are really losing it. So hopefully getting improving in that dimension I've jumping to another paper bittersweet interesting. So it's entitled rates and predictors of using opioids in the Emergency Department Katrina Treat Mike Dean in Young Otto's and so so this is sort of a machine learning exercise you have gone through to locate you know coup is getting prescribed. OPIOIDS water the conditions for the Democrat not Nestle demographics but different different maybe age and things like that gender. and and then ask the question desert has some effect on addiction. In the long term rights. So that project To great example of team science though. We. Assembled a team of subject matter experts in neurology pain management. And Data Science and. The neurologist and pain management experts. Identified an intriguing question that we decided to pursue with data. In their question was. Based on anecdotal observation and so we thought it'd be interesting to see how well the data supported that. Observation is that. for youth and young adults Treated or admitted into the emergency. Department. With a migraine headache that. All too often they were treated with an opioid. And so we Use the same day to resource that we were discussing earlier. To explore that. Question. And using data from a hundred and eighty distinct emergency departments. We found that on average twenty, three percent of those youth and young adults were treated with. An opioid medication while they were in the emergency department. In general, it should be almost zero percent in general. There's really Better medications to us, four people presenting with a migraine. and. So this fits into obviously the OPIOID crisis it. it demonstrates the. Scenario describing that. You know using real world data. You can identify patterns of clinical behavior that. Don't match guideline. And the good news is that the? correctable and so through. Training and communication there's great opportunity to. To, manage this. Really. Striking. So fifteen thousand or so inevitably the encounters. And nearly a quarter of this encounters you say involved inoculate. and these are not just Misha and Congress right. It is not filtered down to migraine encounters. Okay. Okay. So these fifteen thousand just might in encounters might vein being repeating disease So once you. If you make a statement and. This or not Easter conditioning issue here. So you get your pain, you go to an emergency department and you get treated with an opioid you get quick tactical relief. From pain. auditing condition expect that in the next episode. So you can say we didn't pursue that particular question, but that is Definitely key part of. Managing the OPIOID crisis is that drug seeking behavior and so Part of our goal was to quantify that and use this as an opportunity to educate providers that. You really shouldn't be treating migraines with an opioid in there are better alternatives and. So we we felt that this was an important contribution to that national dialogue, but we didn't specifically pursue the question of whether the patients we analyzed. Within. Encounter show up Subsequently. With the same symptoms. Right right. Yeah you it develop into period when problematic patterns of drug use comedy. FEST MERGE THE PREVALENCE RATE OF OPIOID misuse estimated to be two to four percent and debts in each goofy just young adult drew from overdoses are rising. and. You say that literally prescribe IOS has been slumping loose future opioid misuse by thirty three percent. Betas Mehta say really huge number. I think just validates the importance of this of this work. Interesting mark. I don't know you exploded on data. Last the question if you look at the aggregate data, it'd be flying opioid. Misuse. what percentage of the total number. Actually started from. You know some sort of medical encounter has mike or some sort of. related encounter that could be completed otherwise was three a bit opioid. in that encounter documented resulted in that misuse. So what so If you look at the active misuse problem that we have today. do you have a sense of what percentage of that goal is actually started I? Think the exciting thing about this type of research is for everyone questioned that you pursue you have. You have ten new that you can pursue. We haven't. Delved into that specific area, but it's It's very ripe for further analysis and A considerable part of where I end my colleagues and our time as. We do this type of work to get an initial analysis published. And then You know in my leadership role I just WANNA. support people like my colleagues on this paper Mark Connelly Jennifer Bickel. in in using data to. Support their research into identify those follow. I mean, he tests policy implications. So it's sweet important work. and. If you find it direct relationship here than you have to ask you know from from a medical perspective what is right intervention? maybe is not just added of care just best practice but clearly should be the bay You know things should be looked at you say you're American Academy of Neurology has included avoidance of using opioid to treat gain one of stop top flight choosing wisely recommendations. For high-value duck in this gives Really evidence to to support that. The other thing that's really intriguing is this level of variation from site to site in. Some Sun facilities are very much aligned with the guidelines. Others are at the you know well, above twenty three percent. And that gives an opportunity for a really precision. conversations about you know, where does our organization stand on that spectrum? Yeah that's a that's an interesting avenue to right. So you know one could ask he says some sort of push sliced Intervention if we can fly goal of patients who who had gone an opioid sexually don't have an addiction problem. that as you know Anna, the kofoed does. if you can fly those type of patterns than you can think about. A customized within electronic health record systems. There's. The ability to provide decisions poor. There's certainly phenomena called pop up fatigue were physicians. You know they don't like having so many pop up windows but at the same time. It's Within the capability of an e e Hr to do that if then logic if patient has. migraine medication order equals opioid. encourage the provider to pause and reconsider that. Right, right and so this is supervised machine learning type analysis where so you have. you have number features that comes directly from each else. So each sex race ethnicity. insurance type. Encounter prostate suggest duration. time of the year and so on. and you have labeled data in this case I guess you have able tater because you would know if op- inscribed on trade. Okay and so are the two questions here. One is to ask the question given a new patient and those features. you could assign a probability that that patient will be prescribed will. Definitely. Impress the data from that predictive Minds. Right and then can you so that data definitely tell you if the patient is going to progress into some sort of an addiction issue. So. Earn Predicting Substance Abuse. So. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. There's additional diagnosis codes that document. whether a patient has a history of substance abuse disorder. and. So it would be feasible to. Identify the with those diagnosis codes in than really look at their prior history. Of What other conditions were they treated for? What medications were they give in? to develop that model. One of the things in this case that helped with this study is that just in general, it's not advised get. So there are other things that are much more of a gray area. Or whether opioid is as useful, but in this case. The really not. Considered. To be helpful for migraines compared to other options and so that help us have a fairly clear cut scenario to do this work. Yeah. This this won't be the data like you say once you do something like this, you have been other things you could. You could stop asking. So unquestioned that that been to my mind as you know, how did they hugged the actually prescribing opioids? Is it the patient asking for it all so? Off that was another scoping thing with this project is focused on what happens within the emergency. Room. So it's it's. Really, medication order in administration that happens. In that emergency room setting. Whether or not the patient. was. Requesting that you know if they came in and said, this has worked for me before. Can I have it again? we don't have visibility to that. Right. Right. And so from a practical perspective So the the analysis that you did slightly ended up with the Family Clyde power we think it is. Compelling. Pretty compelling. So as as a new patient gets into e D either high. and what I mean by that probably is if there is a history of substance abuse property. the physician has really think twice about. The use of may be the well, and in this case, even without that history. Just because it's not considered to be an effective treatment. You know encouraging them to pause in that decision making. In this particular case is as effective as wall. Right. So looking forward. In if you think about both of these issues, one is the data quality data aggregation data standardized recent problem in the the right of Utah Systems have did that the talked about? And then if we can get to a level that we can look at cross a large data set. Beacon, ask. More. US specific questions, treatment. Optimum treatment type questions. subpoenaed. US The mark big think B be hunting. Certainly, the volume and variety of data that we're able to work with will be even greater I, think the. Opportunity To. Look, holistically at how upstream data capture. Effects Downstream data. Analysis. example I frequently give is if we have a Aggregate Data said we identify. Ten patients whose way in that data such shows up as being. Something that's completely infeasible. let's say they're documented is being. Fifty year old person who weighs two pounds. Clearly air. What's important is? Creating the process to communicate that back upstream. Because that clinical decision. Support. Many drug dosing things are evaluated using weight based logic and so. That same logic that's Evaluating the appropriateness of dosage. It's going to be running against an incorrect value in that may or may not always be visible. So I really am intrigued with that holistic opportunity. In it I am I remain just we have three or four additional papers coming out. About other examples where Provider behaviors not aligned with Best Practices and I'm just excited about you know when you compare that to how long it takes to develop a new drug or how long it takes to. To a really long term research. This research has the opportunity for a pretty quick turnaround on an effective intervention. A really that. Other so much that right. Providers. been taught in a no, but they're. Not always using that in practice and so to help them. Identify, those topics in just modifying behaviors is. In the scheme of things, it's a very straightforward way to improve. So. You know the entire spectrum from essentially getting the data. Right or cleaner like you know Missa mischaracterized or miss input data like wait or something like that. To to get. Better diagnosis better treatment modalities. policies there and from a femme perspective clearly inflammation therefore clinical trials. I was even thinking about drug interaction type. Inflammation. I haven't been involved in the former de for awhile but. Typically, this type of data doesn't get back into automatic processes that fast but I think that is all I know there's strong interest in Pharma in. Working with this type of data there a again looking at real world behavior.

Crime Boss, James Whitey Bulger

"In the kitchen of seven ninety, nine east. Third Street in Boston Fifty Five Year Old Boston crime boss Whitey Bolger said across from John mcintire he felt nothing but hatred. He knew that McIntyre agreed to talk to the DA and there was nothing that Whitey loathed more than a rat. A cool breeze rattled the window on that day in November nineteen eighty-four McIntyre was handcuffed and chained to a chair. Whitey set his MAC ten machine pistol on the table and told him that they needed to talk. Knew, he was doomed. There was a reason why Whitey had become the kingpin of South Boston. Lording over the neighborhoods loansharking bookmaking truck hijacking and extortion rackets, and it wasn't by showing mercy. He knew that even if he was somehow able to talk his way out of the situation that was nowhere to run. By the end of his career Whitey sanctioned hits as far away as Oklahoma McIntyre. Himself had even been involved in weapons smuggling scheme into Ireland full Whitey. No less. His boss was an international criminal. The great irony of course was Whitey got away with all of his criminal enterprises because he himself was an FBI informant. Whitey had grown up in the projects with an FBI agent named John Connolly. To him. Whitey was more than just a valuable pawn in their war against the Italian mafia, and for Bolger, Connolly became his `get-out-of-jail-free card and it was connelly who gave him the tip that one of his guys McIntyre was talking of course only those in White T.'s inner circle new of his deal between Bolger and connolly besides who would suspect Whitey of talking he was the gentleman gangster who bought Turkeys for poor South Boston families on Thanksgiving, the man who was a fitness. Nut He didn't drink or smoke the same Whitey who for all of his wealth and power still drove a Chevy Malibu and lived with his mother nearly until her death in nineteen eighty. Whitey, was a Southie boy through and through no, one would accuse him of talking to the feds so why he ran southie and that meant he had all the tools in his pocket, the power of the FBI and the power to do whatever needed to be done to anyone who crossed him. In. The kitchen John mcintire shook his head apologizing over and over again he told his boss. I'm sorry. I was week white. He wasn't interested in the apologies he needed information. He turned the conversation to ask him questions about what McIntyre told the FBI. NDA and then oddly his questions shifted back towards business McIntyre was entrenched in Boston's drug trade Whitey. He had been forcing South Boston's drug dealers to pay him rent for working his streets and he wanted to make sure he was still getting his haircut McIntyre spilled everything both what he said to the feds and about the drug industry he held back nothing by the time McIntyre was done talking Whitey was satisfied. He calmed McIntyre down in assured him that they were just going to send him away. Once the heat died down, he could return to Boston somehow whites he managed to convince McIntyre to come down to the basement with him. and. Once they were downstairs white he tried to strangle McIntyre with the rope. But the rope was too thick. All it did was make McIntyre. throw-up frustrated Whitey grabbed a gun and shot him with that bullet. Whitey used his position as an informant for the FBI to kill another enforcement and the FBI had helped him do it. People like John McIntyre. What collateral damage the cost of doing business ultimately McIntyre's death meant nothing to Whitey. In fact, he went upstairs and took a nap a ritual he kept after every kill. Meanwhile, two of his henchmen buried the body
