Creighton's Abortion Stance Challenged

"Good morning gary saddle meyer. Kabc's morning news. Jim rose lucy chapman. Great to have you with us. And i mentioned yesterday morning that i had We got this. At the end of the radio station. Overnight that a letter from a former nebraska state. Senator patrick ben did. He was a longtime pro-life activist and our state and the letters addressed to reverend hendrickson The president creighton university and very well written very respectful and having an issue though with a couple of creighton professors who are described as theologians who had a piece printed in a world herald last fall seemingly arguing against the churches antiabortion stance in light of what they say is looming Climate catastrophe that's going to wipe out half the earth's population Battering didn't think that was a great stance for a catholic university to be taking and he joins us for this morning. Patrick how are you. Good morning gary. And you're spot on good to have you back What spurred this now. This letter were this. This piece was printed last fall. You know a couple of things. Gary number one was of course. The the at the at the world herald and number two was a father william costco. He's at saint. Henry's polish by arizona. And he was speaking to the pro-life and pull abortion catholics. If sometime you and the listeners pam time to tune in to youtube on costa was Homily i i think it's spot on and getting you believe. He was crying from the pulpit for several minutes. Then on. where's this. Where's this accessible. it's you know. I a friend of mine. Senator man was youtube and his name. Is father william coastal ko k- on us at saint. Henry's payrolls when bygone all. He was addressing the co-abortion catholics. Basically it was spot on any s. Same to me. And i remember reading this at the time i thought well this is just a political piece. These professors are obviously very partisan democrats. They were promoting the biden harris ticket and An talking about this Catastrophic climate disaster. That's going to be honest before you know instating. At his fact when when when the fact that had her is that abortion deaths are actual fact. Did you have you had a response from father hendrickson. Yeah you know when. I called his office last week. Area he was. I believe he was traveling with the basketball team that they get the big east tournament. And now i think he's he might be with the with the team if the ncw tournaments okay. But i agree with you know to get you know we. We have environmental issues. But but the article led need a believe that We need to save the environment portion. No that's gravely and more was wrong and the other the other sad part about this to gary. I had called the the pull on people's in omaha on. I was wanting to get some some information on on the article from from the professors that they thought i'd get a different point of view apps that they will not interested on discussing the article. I can imagine that so all right. Well i it'll be interesting if you don't mind to stay in touch with us Patsy if you get a response from president hendrickson and as you suggest. I thought the most salient question that you asked other than the umbrella. Question of how. How catholic university Allow this was. Would you ask if any of the administration Or the board of trustees had looked at it and it'll be an approved it or and apparently not or maybe they did patrick and suppose they did what will be. That's kind of bothersome as not if we find out that. The board of trustees of creighton university said yeah. Go ahead with this. You know gary i. I i hope i hope that wasn't the case and As as far as following protocol it would seem to me that I think they just did this on their own. Without going through administrative authority I just can't believe that rather henriksen weather turned this woman in your letter toward him. You know him personally. I do not carry not the pleasure of meeting nor have i well. Let's say touch pad. I'd be interested to know what the responses and you're one you're one of the guys would inform me of the italian origin of of Patrick so i appreciate. I appreciate that bad vendetta here on. Kfi morning news. You know if this were a pair of christian theologians under the auspices of the episcopal church for example Or or for some other but the the roman catholic church have two professors. The largest abroad. This i remember at the time begging. You know it's a little out there. All right we'll see now needs to stock daniel hendrickson and get him to respond to this. Well that's near the president of creighton university. You talk about multiple spears pointed in your direction every night I don't know how they handle it. You know you've got laypeople as professors you have lay people who send their kids there And then you have dogmatic catholics. Who demand that. It'd be done this way. I don't know how they pull it off down there to be honest with you. It's a private school so it's all behind closed doors and drawn window shade Well i think it's like you suggested gem in a way with the Mcdermott controversy the last couple of weeks. That they're that they're trying to juggle everything. Okay we got to keep going here because kids today and our we need to attract them. And all of that. So i i would be a horrible trustee. No i think you'd be a good trustee. I think you'd be an excellent rusty now. You don't have enough money to be on. of course i thought you'd be an excellent voice on it. It's a horrible now. It is kid not well. You're a little bit softer on edge than that. You know. you don't typically walk in and say all right. here's what we're doing. We don't care what you've been doing. We're going do my Melbourne adelaide either have principles and dogmatic theological precepts or. You don't well as a as a roman catholic institution. I'm not talking about anybody else. Should believe or not but it seems to me that the church has been pretty clear on this deal from day one on abortion. That's all i personally don't understand it myself I really don't understand how they can be in any other way. But i'm also not down there every day and i don't get to walk into the circular firing squad every day so You know there's probably a little bit more to it. it's opium deal. You know last night. A whole bunch of people and i think. Kfc had a lot to do with it to be honest with you. A whole bunch opium parents said it the brakes on these academies pigeonhole a fourteen year old for the rest of their high school career. You think it's a good idea. Scott was all over that. Because you've got kids right in the middle of that and rosie nosy yellow read them and i think baker brought it up seventy good to see the community. Turn out no doubt.

Twos foundling face down a large amount of blood. What does this scene tell you? What do your victims tell you? You got up killer lose here. Who's specifically targeting people? Yeah this doctor's House. Somebody's after those doctors. Four people are dead because somebody's vengeance revenge. That's your motive thermo. It sent shockwaves right away. Where she goes. What's HE GONNA do? You want real life. God what the Hell do we have here? Winter on the Great Plains can be long bleak and brutal so in March when winter briefly releases its grip for a day or two. Even the trees seem to raise their limbs in celebration March thirteenth. Two thousand eight was one of those days of cautious jubilation in Omaha Nebraska sixty one degrees and a light velvety breeds. Eleven year old. Tom Hunter wore shorts and a tee shirt to school that Thursday. It was a little after three when Tom seen here on. A security camera. Got Off the bus in the leafy Dundee neighborhood and headed home to play video games as he did nearly every day. It would be hours before. Tom's father returned home but the house was not empty. Fifty seven year old Shirley Sherman who scrubbed and Polish. The hunter home on Thursdays was still there by sunset. Both Tom Hunter and Shirley Sherman would be dead murdered by killer. Who was just getting started? Who DID IT and why we're questions? That would eventually take Omaha. Detectives all over North America and would take more than five years to answer. This one stood out. Obviously because of the brutality for one detective Derek. Moyes was working three to eleven that day. The nine one one call came in from Tom. Hunters Dad Dr William Hunter. Dr Hunter had come home found Shirley Sherman and his son deceased would call nine one one thing unusual pickle. There wasn't a lot of emotion shown but he is a doctor. He has a pathologist and he's seen a lot of deadly seen a lot of death and it was I think to use the word. Clinical the detective and his partner were immediately dispatched to the hunters stately home in. Dundy part of them. It is it's It's an older neighborhood. Middled upper class homes very quiet. It's not a place where we have. A lot of. Violent crime occur in our city even now. Detective Moi still remembers the Capri set of blood. That hit him when he stepped across the threshold of the hunter home. There's a heavy metallic kind of humidity in the air of almost you feel it. It's presence and there's a lot of it and there was a lot of it at the hunter household to the left of the front door in the dining room off the main hallway. Lay the body of the boy com hunter lying on his face. His hands down at his side. There's a fair amount of blood round his head and down the hall the body of the housekeeper. Surely Sherman choose found lying face down large amount of belied underneath her stainless steel handled on kitchen. Knife protruding from the right side of her neck. Both victims had been killed in the same way and oddly enough there were no signs of struggle. No fingerprints no bloody footprints. Is this person. Careful or just very lucky. Could be both you know it. It's not like TV. Not every crime scenes going to yield fingerprints. Not every crime scene is going to yield. Dna or trace hairs or those types of things. Stolen didn't appear to be no in fact the only things out of place were the knives. The knives came from inside the house. He did unusual for a killer to show up planning to do murder and also planning to find the murder weapon at the crime scene. Not necessarily by all accounts. Dr Hunter was still in a state of shock when police took him downtown for questioning right there in the hallway between the back door so the first thing. I think I yelled out off. Do you have any idea who and why somebody would do? Sometimes honestly I've been just racking my brain peaceful. It's almost Dr William. Hunter known as Bill to friends and colleagues ran the pathology residency program at nearby Creighton University. His wife Claire also doctorate. Creighton was in Hawaii that day attending a conference. Her husband had to break the awful news to her from the police station. How's your wife crushed? She GonNa be okay. She has a workmate. So she's not. The hunters had four boys to Rome one in college and Tom. Jeff a student at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln at the time lived closest. He says it was about eight o'clock that night when he happened to check his phone calls from friends family so I said he something was up and we can get a hold of. My Dad. Couldn't get home. My mom one of my friends called me and he told me to call my brother. Was your older brother. Yeah what did he say it happened? Just somebody killed. Tom And I need to go find. My Dad talked to my dad. Get a long drive. It's like forty five minutes. Those miles between Lincoln and Omaha seemed longer than usual that night. It's hard for Jeff to remember exactly what happened when he got home. Who told him what or when that whole thing is a blur. I didn't sleep at all that night. You you're constantly trying to figure out what's going on. You lived in that same house which is all happened right yes whole life now Jeff. Mind was filled with thoughts of what had happened there and of his brother. Tom Who was eight years younger his counter. Smart out he has grown up with three other brothers. He is a smart kid he knew a lot and he just. I mean he always had something to say for everything. What was he doing life? Then he went to science magnet middle school elementary combined with the Middle School. And he really like Sci. He's always outside plan so that was his big thing Gamer wasn't he? He was but more times than not he'd be outside with neighborhood kids but it wasn't the neighborhood kids that fascinated the COPs com had a lot of friends. He'd never actually met in real life. They were people he knew. From the anonymous world of online gaming. It was those relationships that detectives wanted to know more about the investigation begins. Does he play around on chat rooms or anything like that might be nervous about curious conversations online? He interacted with people all over the US. A mysterious stranger and another murder. Where would this winding trail of clues lead crime like this doesn't happen in Dundee? It sent shockwaves right away. The Hunter House was dearly still when detectives arrived the only sound music from a video game in the basement which seemed to add a haunting soundtrack to the violent and disturbing scene. It had appeared that Thomas was in process of playing online game on his xbox could see pop and chips in front of a chair right front of the TV. Probably like a lot of kids after school every day and the game itself had timed out with the music was playing kind of ominously in the background during Bill Hunters interview with police investigators. They got straight to the point. Does he play around on chat rooms or anything like that that you might be service. Vital I don't know he's on his the only chat room. No He's on is why they'll Ville it. Turns out is a popular online game and chat room. That attracts preteens not wasn't all Tom's xbox which allowed him to play and speak to other gamers online was a concern detectors. Wondered if Tom might have inadvertently come into contact with an Internet Predator. We knew that he had a number of contacts and friends online through not only his xbox but his personal computer so those people are essentially in many cases anonymous to some extent. Yeah they are so they might be kids. They might just be saying their kids correct. And that's what we would come to find out that he interacted with people all over the US in some cases outside of the US through these interactive sites. Did you or anybody in your family ever worried that Tommy was meeting people online or just talking to people online through the gaming community people. Maybe you didn't know about that. Didn't really come up till after the fact restarted thinking. Maybe that was something that could happen. But prior to know and you didn't know those war and he didn't either. No detectives determined. Tom Hotter had interacted with close to fifty people online on a regular basis. Thomas was eleven years old that he disclosed that in his gaming activities. Now in fact in some instances We would come to find out that he portrayed himself as somebody. Who's older which in turn could end up playing into this absolutely it would take months to track down. Tom's online contacts more pressing was what detectives were hearing from. The neighbors. Several said they'd seen a stranger walking near the hunter home late. That afternoon told me what the person neighbors described all of complected male. Who was heavy set dressed in a collared shirt? Some describe a jacket possibly like an ill fitting suit with a shoulder bag and several people would correlate that individual to a silver Honda CR V. notify the actual make of car. Yes that all seems pretty helpful. Very the same individuals would describe that that vehicle was missing front play but they would describe the rear plate as kind of a white background with dark lettering and kind of describe a multiple colored sunset or kind of a Pastel sunset so it's not Nebraska play out of state. What are our feeling was yes. Based on neighbors. Descriptions police produced sketch and four days after the murders. Ask the public for help. We received hundreds of phone calls about people. Knowing somebody that resembled that sketch and each one of those leads had to be given some degree of consideration. Reporter Todd Cooper covered the story for the Omaha World Herald. Dundee is a nice neighborhood and Oma. That's an affluent area Doctors and others not mansions but stately homes crime like this doesn't happen in Dundee and so it sent shockwaves right away. More depth about the computer use while the murders in done deed dominated the news. Investigators were taking a second look at a less publicized. Crime months earlier there had been another murder not far from Dundee in this one an elderly female had been bludgeoned and stabbed in the neck. We had knives that were used from her residence in her murder so we had similarities in that weapons were taken from her home in used against her and left the scene. But you have somebody who liked that. The detectives at investigated that case that identify a suspect very early on somebody who has a family member of hers whom she had had a falling out with. Didn't seem to have any connection with honors none whatsoever. There comes a time in every homicide investigation. Were detectives have to focus on the victim's family and friends as far as detectives knew the hunters were a well respected family. And then come out about the hundreds that you didn't know gambling problems family problems now. There wasn't some gigantic ghost in the closet. That made us think. Oh well there is our motive right there. Nothing like down since bill and Claire. Hundred were both doctors at Creighton. He pathologist Shia cardiologists. Detectives wondered if someone at the hospital might have had a motive to harm them having hated. H- all right on our own Eugene. Not everyone handles grief differently. After their youngest son was murdered in their home the hunters seem to want nothing more than to be left alone but kind of a private family so not too keen on talking with media on the other hand the family of Surely Sherman the other Dundee victim desperately wanted to keep the case in the public. We want velocity. You really wanted us to be solved. Halio they have their own ideas about who the killer might be the more they talked. The more detectives wondered if perhaps Surely Sherman and actually been the intended target a secret in the Sherman family. She hated because of what he had been doing to me. The new person of interest immediately. There's a buzz. Could it be like credit? Have been him as a building contractor. Brad Wait spends a lot of time in his truck. He's haunted by the possibility that at the very moment his sister Shirley Sherman was being murdered in March. Two Thousand Eight. He was driving by close enough. Perhaps to have heard her scream. I basically almost drove by hunters. House would've been four o'clock that afternoon. I had no idea Shirley was working there that day. March there later that night brand says he heard about the two murders in Dundee on the ten o'clock news even then. He says he didn't know his sister was a victim. That news came later in a phone call from his brother. Dan Danny Call. Let thirty that night and told me what happened. Then Wade says that from that night on the word housekeeper has been used as shorthand for surely as if her job to find her. They're always calling her the housekeeper and it's she was only there for a couple of hours every couple of weeks or a week to her brothers. Dan and Brand Shirley was big SIS. The family glue after their parents divorced when they were young. She was the one that organized everything she would call you before. Somebody's birthday and say you know it's someone's birthday Thursday or or she would get everybody to go in on gifts and our she would help the shopping and that aspect of it is. You just don't realize it until it's gone for sure. Children Kelly and Jeff. She was the single mom who often worked two jobs and stretched every dollar to make ends meet. We were one of the poorest families in the neighborhood Bartending in the evening cleaned houses during the day. Gardening was her specialty. You grow everything. Eggplant tomatoes of five different varieties. Feeding me was probably expensive. So she'd make her own spaghetti sauce. She she kanner on. Cucumbers made pickles out of them. After a lifetime of hard work in her hands and knees Jevon Kelly say their mom had cut back the hunters were among the few clients. She had left so she wanted to clean. Just a couple houses ever allow her to pick up the grandkids from school in the afternoons and spend time with them spending time with the grandkids. It turns out was relatively easy to do the right next door to me every day. Talk me into buying this house. She could see. Her grandchildren. Situation was convenient but Kelly says it was hard to have any privacy who mother knew everything bouquet went and who stayed the night and now the plot thickens. I was dating a married guy. Let me guess. Your mom didn't approve. No not at all. We had an explosive relationship meaning. Meaning things got broke. Kelly says that relationship became so tempestuous so difficult that surely got involved and actively tried to keep the boyfriend away at one point in time. She was thinking about getting a restraining order. I mainly for my daughter Sake. She would tell me not. He can't come over and I would come in one time. She can walk around my house with the hammer in her hand. Saying I want his blood on Amer. She hated him that bad because of what he'd been doing to me in spite of that Kelly stuck with the man got pregnant and had a baby with it. They got uglier from there. She actually started the process of getting my house out of my name so that she could keep him out of the house right after surely died would have been very private and embarrassing family feud became fodder for public speculation. Todd Cooper the reporter says that starting on Day One. Shelly's boyfriend was a person of interest immediately. The name of the boyfriend of Shirley Sherman's Daughter came up. There's a buzz. Could it be him like could it have been in? His name. Came up again and again a doctor. Under the microscope he had had some trouble during his time at Creighton University. He was just a little bit more boisterous by late spring. Two thousand eight two months after the murders in Dundee detectives had powered through and eliminated nearly all of their early leads in that case. The boyfriend of Shirley's daughter. The man who looked like such a good suspect on paper seem to have a solid alibi. According to timesheets he was working at the time of the murders fairly cooperative. And I think we're comfortable putting him aside and we didn't have anything that would lead us to believe that he would know where she was that day and that he was in that area on the date that those crimes occurred the composite sketch generated leads and exactly zero suspects. There wasn't anything that you could correlate to actual perpetrator or the crime scene. That day as for Tom Hunters Online gaming contacts detectives deciphered the IP addresses and anonymous screen names and tracked down those people and as far as you knew he'd never met any of those people in real life correct turns out. None of those online contacts was anywhere near Omaha on the day of the murders. Detectives were making progress but reporter. Todd Cooper says the nervous citizens of Omaha had no way of knowing that all good police departments are pretty good at keeping that information close to the vest. We just kept waiting in waiting. That question was foremost on. Everybody's mind who could have done this. Detective return to the theory that either Dr Bill Hunter or his wife Dr Clare. Hunter might have been the intended victim between the two of them. They figured bill hunters position at Creighton. Made him the more likely target. He's basically oversaw. All the students that were going through this pathology training program at Creighton University. And if there was disciplinary action to take he would be the individual among others. You know to have a direct impact on those students wise so potentially a lot of suspects. They're potentially yes so. The detective went to the Pathology Department at Creighton and started asking questions. Were there any individuals interacting with these folks? At the time this occurred that you believe could be responsible for whatever reason? If there's a potential motive what do you think it might be? The detective says one name kept coming up. Dr Michael Belenky. How many times you hear the name Michael Bowling? You can't give you an accurate answers. How many but his name came up again and again Dr Belenky was a former resident. Who left the pathology program and threatened to sue Creighton a year before the murders Dr Honors home. He had had some trouble during his time at Creighton University but they weren't unlike other people's troubles but he was just a little bit more boisterous about his. I guess his perceive treatment by Creighton University in some of the staff there. Blinky told detectives he'd been working in Pittsburgh on the day of the Dundee murders Pittsburgh's like nine hundred miles from Omaha. Sorry you're not driving that in a correct presumably. You're not doing that without air. Travel right and air travel something you can check right but we knew he was on the schedule. I believe we knew he had logged into his email account at that facility that day but nobody actually saw him at work right. There is nothing to show. He was anywhere other than there which is not an ironclad alibi. But it's not bad. It's not bad men. Sometimes that's just the reality of our work that seemed to be the end of the line doctor. Blinky had been the investigators last best lead unwilling to see the case go coal surely. Sherman's family pooled their money and offered a there are a number contribution. I think people contributing as well which made it. How big is fifty fifty and all counting? Everybody's contribution we actually wanted one hundred thousand but they wouldn't allow that because they thought it would be about which it was my opinion when the reward failed to produce a break in the case. They hired a private investigator. Part of the motivation to do on. That was we're GONNA send a signal we're not gonNa let it co- case you saw it becoming a cold case. Well we felt it was becoming that way in the end the private I found nothing. Detectives hadn't already studied and discounted a year after the murders in the case went cold and most of the detectives moved on to other things. But for the families of Shirley Sherman and Tom Hunter. There could be no moving off. How'd you see your Dad Change? And it wasn't like he was depressed all the time and he was himself. Just there is obviously something kind of like you can always see behind. Someone's is that there's something there and I think we all had that five dreadful. Anniversaries came and went the dead were still inexplicably dead and the case was still unsolved but through it all the detective says he stayed in touch with the hundred Sherman families. You kind of hear their frustrations when they call and they want updates and they want to be kind of kept in the loop but is investigators you kinda. You can't give them what they're looking for answers from you that you can't give them for you guys to because. I'm sure you WANNA keep working on this. Meanwhile your boss is saying here's another case and another one and another one and that's why it went to the cold case unit and that's how it stayed until. May of two thousand thirteen. The breakthrough moment came in brutal for yet another double homicide in Omaha for detectives who'd been at the hunter home five years earlier. This one felt uncomfortable. Familiar was like oh my gosh this is this could very easily be related to the Dundee homicides. This was just a lightning bolt had the elusive dundee. Killer struck again. This is the same guy is this is the same perpetrator. Yes the piano. Movers were suspicious. Their work orders said they were supposed to make a pickup at this house in West Omaha on Tuesday morning may fourteenth two thousand thirteen but no one was home but when they went to the front door They observed at the front security door was open slightly and one of the movers noted Stainless Steel Handgun magazine lying in the doorway and they felt that was so some concern since they weren't getting any answer from residents to contact nine one one when detective boys and his partner stepped inside. They found the body of an older man on the floor. The victim had multiple gunshot wounds and a deep stab wound to the right side of his neck off to the left. You could see the female victim lying in the living room a large area of blood. It was very clear that there had been a struggle there from all of the blood that was apparent and where it was located on the walls and so forth her arms and hands were covered with defensive wounds and there was a deep gash on the right side of her neck beside her late. Two kitchen knives for Derek Moist his partner. It was a jolt of electricity and a big hit of Deja Vu. We're like this is something here we have. You know would seem connection. This is the same guy. This is the same perpetrator yes? That's a pretty big moment. It was very just as before nothing was stolen and the killer left no fingerprints or bloody footprints behind but these victims had obviously put up a fight. The additional gun parts found near the front door and the nine millimeter gun clip with nine bullets. Remaining seemed to be proof of that. What do you make of the gun? Parts in the doorway. What it told me was that there had been a struggle for that gun. Why would that magazine be objected from the gun? That shouldn't happen in the course of normal firing a handgun. But it makes sense if you're struggling over that gun. This is not a faulty got. This is a fight over two so it was a violent struggle of violent encounter. The victims looked as if they'd been dead for a day or two detectives still didn't know who they were but as they stepped outside headquarters called. One of our sergeants is doing research on who the homeowners to that location where she had identified Roger Brownback Dr Creighton University and was employed within the pathology department. So now we have a second victim from the same office in the same specific pathology training program that we had in the two thousand eight days. The Brumberg would have been a colleague of Dr Hunter. Yes no question known. Each other no question. It had been more than five years since the killings in Dundee but the CREIGHTON connection was lost on no one least of all the families of the two thousand eight victims. Surely Sherman and Tom Hunter. We saw it on the news. People say you know that was. Dr Raj Raj. Brownback was headed. The pathology department creating universal. Whoa recognized that name right away. And the fact that was another pathologist from creighton killed with the knife automatically assumed it was related. Roger Bromberg wasn't any pathologist. He was head of the Department he and Mary. Brownback were both sixty five in researching their final hours reporter. Todd Cooper learned. The couple had last been heard from at about two PM on Mother's Day. One of the first things we found out about was the facetime conversation between both boombox and their daughter and they were roaring with laughter at one point so much that the daughter took a screen shot of the conversation. That's the kind of stuff that humanizes this that makes it. You realize that this was just a lightning bolt in the middle of an otherwise normal. Mother's Day Carol. Brumbach Roger Sister also spoke with her brother that afternoon then two days later a family member broke the awful news. Well he said Roger. Mary were murdered. And I said I I. So when you talk about me. So they were. Murdered will gruesome Euroland. And now I had no idea. I have no idea what had happened. Carol couldn't imagine who might want to kill her brother although well off. She says he and Mary had lived modestly so tell me about his marriage to Mary. I just kind of knew that that was a match made in heaven. They're absolutely happy. I mean married. Just she did everything. She did a lot of editing for lottery. Rogers publications shortly before the murders. Roger had announced that he'd be retiring in June he and Mary plan to move back east. In fact that's why the piano movers had come to the House that morning. Now a town known for its steaks and insurance companies was once again buzzing with talk over murder and there was absolutely no doubt at that point who is being targeted. It was chilling just sinking. Feeling of man is struck again. A new an old suspect. She called her office and said are you guys going to need to talk to me again. In the new target we have to crimes and potentially there would've been another was another doctor in the crosshairs. Sometimes detective work is a lot like shooting pool. Play all the angles make the easy ones first and save the money ball. For last. In the keys of the Omaha killings the basic facts stood out like bright balls on a billiard. Take two double homicides. Five years apart. Both in the homes of high-ranking doctors in Creighton University's Pathology Department each victim stabbed through the carotid artery with medical precision. The next question. Well that seemed about as obvious as the ten ball in the side pocket the last best potential suspect in the two thousand eight murders was now top of mind for the two thousand thirteen case. Dr Michael Blankie but get this before. Detectives could get around to looking up. Something truly astonishing happened after the Brownback murders. He called her office because he had heard about the murders. And Said are you guys. GonNa need to talk to me again because you. I don't remember exactly what was said but he made comments. He was glad Dr Brownback was was dead. I'm glad he's dead. He made a comment to that effect. Yes almost sounds like somebody's boasting about this. It could be yeah and again. The same detectives turned right back around and started going through the same process. Let's find out where Doctor Blinky was on mother's Day two thousand thirteen turns out that your Belenky was living in the northwest dividing his time between Vancouver and Washington state at the time of the Brownback murders when detectives reinterviewed him. They wondered if they were missing. Something could their primary person of interest have somehow slipped in an out of all. Maha undetected any indication that he was in Oman. None none for his part. Valenki told the cops he had nothing to do with the Omaha killings. In fact he denies ever saying he was glad. Dr Brownback was dead in the end. Detectives had to scratch Dr Blink off their list back to the drawing board. If the suspect wasn't Michael Belenky detectives figured it had to be someone else with Creighton connections. We knew that we had to look at everybody. In the pathology department all of the staff everybody there that means there are what maybe a thousand couple thousand persons of interest all going in different directions. Yeah four days after the Brownback murders this investigation got one more jolt. Another pathology professor from Creighton reported at around two nine thousand nine. Pm on Mother's Day someone had tried to force their way into her house. Setting off the burglar alarm. Fortunately Dr Chanda beautiful and her husband were out for mother's Day lunch at the time it made that theory of ours even stronger that now we have two crimes and potentially there would have been another. Had they been home? This is what Dr Batra told. Nbc Affiliate W. O. W. T. TV average on. I think have come a week after the brownback murders Omaha police chief. Todd Schneider named a special task force dedicated to solving all four murders. I understand the fear uneasiness in our community right now. I could feel it this morning when I spoke to employees Creighton University and Legion Health Creighton. Hospital cleese no. This law enforcement is doing everything in our power to solve these crimes. That Task Force consisted of homicide detectives agents with the FBI from our local Omaha Office assigned investigators at the Nebraska State patrol. So this is a full court press yes so investigators once again dove into the CREIGHTON personnel files looking for someone else who might have harbored a grudge against doctors. Hunter Brownback and beauty. Tra- you'd already been down this road before and you look back. What a couple of years. Yeah now what was different as we were going to go back and pull the records from. I believe we started in two thousand to two thousand and thirteen. How many of you were sitting there reading files? There were twenty one of US assigned to the Task Force and I think at some juncture almost all of the detectives would get assigned files from Creighton in those personnel files. Were SEVERAL NAMES. That look promising. Those who were nowhere near Omaha on Mother's Day were eliminated but a couple of weeks after the Brownback killings protective voice says his boss handed him a three ring. Binder from two thousand one this one was thicker than the rest and what I took away after reading that file from front to back. Was that in my mind. There is enough information contained in that file that it made a very real possibility that there was a motive to want to harm Dr Hunter. Dr Brownback or Dr Batra by that individual a new name and new fears were more CREIGHTON colleagues in jeopardy. You felt some urgency twin knew that he was a very real danger he had purchased another handgun. As much as I love getting my hair done.

Wherever you are listening right now there is something about the openness of the Nebraska landscape that fosters a feeling of innocence of Simpler Safer Times in. May Two thousand thirteen a double homicide in the home of an Omaha. Dr Changed all of that. It was the second time in five years that a doctor from CREIGHTON. University's Pathology Department had apparently been targeted for murder in two thousand eight. The victims were Dr William Hunters. Eleven year old son Tom and his house cleaner surely Sherman. The latest victims were Dr Roger Brownback and his wife Mary and two Nineteen PM on the day. The brumbies were last known to be alive. Someone had tried to break into the home of a third creighton pathologist Dr Chanda Butuan and of course because of her position again or right back to Creighton University and specifically right back to the training program. We believe that that incident as well could be related. Somebody's going to war against the KRITON. Pathology Department would appear that way. Detective Derek Moist and his team had searched CRAYTON's personnel files will four after the murders in the hunter on. They'd found a fascinating person of interest. Dr Michael Blankie. But he had an alibi and it seemed the. Creighton connection was a dead end now. They looked again and this time they went further back in time and the second time around. From deep in the files of CREIGHTON's pathology department a new name emerged from back in two thousand one Dr Anthony Garcia he'd been a resident in the CREIGHTON pathology program ranked and was dismissed terminated because of unprofessional conduct toward another resident. Dr Brumbach Hunter. Beurre any of them involved in that all of them but his termination letter was signed specifically by Dr Hunter and Dr Brownback before arriving at Creighton it seemed Anthony. Garcia had been well on his way to achieving the American dream from a working class background in southern California. He'd finished medical school and embarked on what should have been a long and lucrative career but then for some reason his life began to be lit in large measure by the bridges burned along the way he'd been dismissed from other residency programs fired from some jobs and several states had denied him a medical license. It would appear that every time that Dr Garcia would apply for place of employment or licensure as a physician in another state Creighton University. Get notification of that because they would get a request to verify doctor. Garcia's time that he had spent their and Creighton would respond usually Dr Comeback or Dr Hotter. Yeah he was here. He was dismissed. He didn't do a good job right. And so that kept coming back to haunt Dr Garcia experience at Creighton. How many times that happened. I want to say at least seven or eight different times. The Moi's professional failure and the need for revenge could be a powerful motive. Now the detective needed to know if Garcia had the means to commit murder he knew Garcia. Now lived in Indiana. So the detective called the Indiana State Police. So in the Indiana state police came back that day and said we have records Dr Garcia purchasing specifically a Smith and Wesson St nine nine millimeter shortly before the Brownback murders. Well obviously that's very significant to us. The magazine you founded the brunt back home would fit a Smith and Wesson Sti. Yeah now he needed to know whether Anthony Garcia was in Omaha on Mother's Day. Two thousand thirteen with little to go on the detective decided to follow the money. I wanted to find out where he had active credit cards and or banking checking account and once again. The detective found an answer. A credit card issued to Anthony Garcia had been used twice in the Omaha area on Mother's Day. Two thousand thirteen. The first charge was at around twelve thirty PM at Casey's general store just outside Omaha. This is store video of Garcia. Buying Beer. The second was two hours later at a chicken. Join in West Omaha. Called who wingstop wingstop is about a mile from Dr Batra Zone. House able to get a receipt for that that showed it at two twenty six. Will I knew that Dr Beatriz alarm on her house had gone off at two nineteen and that was about a mile away from the restaurant. So you're thinking is he tries to get into the house he can't do it. Correct he leaves. Maybe knowing you set off the burglar alarm drives about a mile to this wing restaurant and he makes a purchase and we would come to find out that while he was sitting at that location he was searching for where. Dr Brownback reciting based on those factors. Investigators became convinced. Anthony Garcia. Was there man. You felt some urgency to arrest Dr Garcia quickly. Because we knew that he was a very real danger to anybody that he could have. Perceived had wronged him on some level and we also had learned through the search warrants by the Indiana state police shortly after he returned to Tara after the Brownback homicides that he had purchased another firearm another handgun in July. Two thousand thirteen. Investigators were ready to make their move. One Team of detectives sent to Indiana to arrest Anthony Garcia another flew to California to simultaneously. Search his parents. Oh it was all supposed to be a coordinated operation but on the morning of the plan to arrest the Indiana team suddenly discover their suspect had put them behind the eight ball. Man-hut they're going one hundred miles an hour. A doctor on the run would the man who eluded investigators for five years slip away again two months after Dr Roger Brownback and his wife. Mary were murdered in their Home Omaha. Detectives flew to Indiana ready to make an arrest. Their target was a former CREIGHTON. Med School Resident Dr Anthony Garcia. The detectives had arranged to have a SWAT team and forensic technicians on hand in Terre Haute. When they made the arrest Kersey is home but once their plane landed. That plan changed after we landed in Indianapolis on Sunday afternoon and turn their phones back on. We would observe that all of a sudden. Dr Garcia Cell Phone is no longer and Tara hope and he was mobile and he was traveling South Through Illinois. Which gave us obviously some concern. Because you thought he was headed where we didn't know exactly what was possible that he would return the next day so we kind of put our plans on hold hoping that he would return to his residence and we would affect does arrest at his residence fortunately to FBI agents who've been working with the Task Force were closer Illinois. They eventually found Garcia at a hotel off the interstate. Our hope was that in the morning he would get up and go home and we could grab there but that morning of course When the FBI agent Scott out he again was on the move and headed south. They missed him. They missed him and now he's truly in the wind. Yes reporter Todd Cooper would later learn that for three hours. All agents had to go on. Were Pink every thirty minutes from Garcia cellphone? They're going one hundred miles an hour. The Next Ping comes in a half hour later. And He's behind so now will you turn and we speed back. And they're scanning the southbound lanes and they finally find him tucked in behind a semi. And you know the wave of relief. That must've come over them with the help of Illinois State Troopers Garcia was finally pulled over although it was only eight thirty am. He had a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit. The trooper said that has breath smelled of booze and then when he went to had to relieve himself. That that smell booze as well. Garcia was arrested on the spot for driving under the influence from his car. Police recovered a cell phone. A forty five caliber pistol fifty bullets a crowbar and a sledge hammer. He told COPS later on a road trip. Nora New Orleans but had no luggage and then the most challenging thing to me was in that back seat was an Lsu lab coat and a stethoscope investigators knew Garcia had been fired from lsu shreveport in two thousand eight. Was He on his way to confront doctors. They're only Anthony Garcia knows. He clammed up on Omaha. Detectives tried to talk with him. We introduced ourselves as detectives from the Omaha Police Department and that we were investigating homicides in our jurisdiction and Mr Garcia immediately asked for an attorney. That's it that's it. I mean at that point as an investigator. I can't continue questioning later that afternoon. Omaha police chief. Todd smarter steps before the cameras to the victim making the announcement that his city had been desperately waiting to hear arrested. This morning was Dr Anthony. Joseph Garcia for four counts of first degree murder and use of a weapon to commit the murders for the families of Roger and Mary. Brownback of Tom Hunter. And of Surely Sherman. The arrest was very welcome news. I'm at Walmart with my kids and Danny calls me and they made an arrest in the case and I think I forgot about twenty thirty items on my grocery shopping list because I was real happy and just had one of the carton rushed out of the grocery store and wanted to go home and watch the news with Anthony. Garcia's arrest Jeff. Hunter says he and his parents felt as if they could finally stop looking over their shoulders. I mean for five years. They're super paranoid. 'cause I mean for all we knew for all I always thought about. Was someone still trying to find my dad? Because that's that was always my hunch that someone was after either my mom or dad. Investigators dispatched to Anthony. Garcia's home in Tara. Indiana saw the outward sign posts of success. The house sat on a quiet street with a Ferrari in the drive but inside the house was practically empty bear rooms bear closets and barely any food in the living room. Detectives found a table stacked with financial documents mortgage information and insurance policies. Anthony Garcia was broke. His home facing foreclosure lit appeared to us that he had made some deliberate attempt to kind of lay things out so people could get his affairs in order. And we see those things homicide investigators when you investigate suicides so wherever he was headed when you arrested him maybe that was going to be his last journey anywhere. Those are thought that that was going to be as N. Game in addition to the documents taken from Garcia's home investigators had to go through all the data collected from his electronic devices. Cell phones tablets. Computers it is. I cloud account. You could see from his financial records that he was regularly going to alcohol stores that he was spending a lot of time at gentlemen's clubs in or around tear. Hoedt he was not working regularly so it looked to us. Collectively like his life was was falling apart. Hardly what Garcia's parents had envisioned for their son when he was growing up in southern California. Anthony Garcia's father. Fred worked for the postal service. His mother Stella a nurse had been born in Mexico. It was a proud moment. They told reporters when in nineteen ninety nine. The eldest of their three children graduated from medical school. There's a great poignant moment where Frederick Garcia and Anthony pile his belongings literally has an Radley Old van and drive across the country from California to upper state New York to start his medical career. How proud he must have been at that moment. A what started as the American dream was turning into something unthinkable if convicted of murdering four people Dr Anthony Garcia now forty years old face the death penalty who alleged motive. Revenge forgetting bad job recommendations with my wife got a murder case. We've got to get up and find a center for the kids husband and wife Defense Team Big City lawyers with a few big surprises. There were so many other people with means motive and opportunity. That could have committed this crime as the father of four Bob. Mata appreciates a placid night of slumber. But on Tuesday July sixteenth. Two thousand thirteen. You will up at four am unable to sleep. The Chicago Area Criminal Attorney checked his office voicemail. That's when he saw that someone from California who'd left him a message guy starts out well. Brother got arrested done southern Illinois for Dui. I'm like Dui down there for Dui within the next minute he says but it sounds like with the actually arresting fours murder so then obviously my interest was piqued. It was a stroke of luck. Anthony Garcia's family had been cold calling lawyers looking for someone to defend. Anthony Bob. Montana was the first call back. It was two. Am California time when he got Anthony. Garcia's brother on the fall thirty minutes later Bob. Motta was retained handle his first murder case. I go upstairs awake my wife. Who's my law partner? Allison Mata got a murder case. We've got to get up and go to Jackson County. You got to find a sitter for the kids. When Anthony Garcia's extradition hearing came up the next day the Matas. Mr and Mrs were seated at the defense table your manningly consenting to the authorities from Nebraska to take you back to that state to deal with these charter you understand that. I'm not going to answer any questions. Regards to his State of mind at this point. The modest brought in Bob's father Robert Motta senior as co counsel is back in the the senior. Mata represented a clown turned serial killer named John Wayne guilty. I'd never tried a case with my dad. And he's towards the end of his career. He'd always said to me if you get a juicy murder that give me a call. I'll try with you and I call them half expecting him to be like. Nah I'm too old. I don't want to do it. And he was on board immediately so this ended up being that case that was the case. Right Anthony Garcia insisted. He was innocent but the modest were concerned that extensive press coverage of the murders was giving potential jurors. Only one side of the story. They needed to hear that there were so many other people with means motive and opportunity. That could have committed this crime. That makes much more sense than somebody waiting. Thirteen years to murder somebody that they knew for a very short period of time in pretrial hearings. The modest battled with prosecutors as if they were rival. Mma fighters. Todd Cooper remembers being in the judge's Chambers one day when Bob Modest started shouting at prosecutors there was a hearing where the Matas appeared by telephone. He was shouting screaming. The judge started pounding on the handset. Yelling shut up. Shut up into the into the microphone. I mean that. That's a pretrial hearing we were seen as the Chicago lawyers who came in stormed and our laws. You know. They didn't like us at all. Might it be easier to just list the people in Omaha that you did not offend the feelings when it comes to a death penalty case. Just don't come into play at all. I mean any lawyer that says they're worried about hurting people's feelings when another human being's life is at stake again as you probably get on the business. In the beginning the modern say Anthony Garcia was actively involved in his own defense. They say that changed over. Time as court delays stretched his time in pretrial isolation from months to years lost a lot of weight. And Bob. Mono- says his client's mental health deteriorated the fact that he was in solitary confinement for three years twenty three hours a day. You know mentally no one can withstand that prosecutors who were also concerned about Garcia's mental state asked the judge to order a lengthy psychiatric evaluation in the end Garcia was found competent to stand trial and a date was set for April. Two Thousand Sixteen then. This story took a most unexpected turn Thursday or Friday before that Monday started jury selection Alison Bodice says to US and two local. Tv STATIONS WE HAVE DNA tests. That proved that our guy was not at the hunter. Sherman's seen Allison Mada spook with W. O. W. T. TV via skype and their DNA. Evidence establishes undeniably unmistakably without doubt those murders. Were COMMITTED BY TWO PEOPLE. Not The claim was based on what the Matas believed to be a potential match between some unidentified DNA found on Shirley Sherman's Bandanna and some DNA taken from a suspect in another case. They're taking a liles from DNA. Bits and pieces and coming up with a theory that never made it to trial but she throws it out there on. The eve of trump and prosecutors are incensed and it really chap the judge. The judge took it as a clear attempt to send information to potential jurors that the state's case was suspect as a result. The trial was postponed again and the judge effectively kicked Alison. Mata off the case. The judge denies her application to practice in the state of Nebraska. Very controversial move. It was just I spoke to the public and that put information that could have you know. Been information to potential jurors and that violated the pretrial publicity rule. The matas wanted to fight allison's removal but what their client? Anthony Garcia apparently wanted was trial when the Matas appealed over his objection. Anthony Garcia completely stopped talking with his own lawyers. It deteriorated mentally coming into the trial to extent where he really hadn't. I mean he didn't say one word to us. This guy's mental state at that point was just dawn. It was September two thousand sixteen eight years after the first of four Omaha Calix when Dr Anthony Garcia finally got his day in court on hand to see it where the victims families who waited the longest arm. Anything is needed to determine for myself if he did it. The trial begins with a lucky break. All of a sudden you get handed the murder weapon. That was again and a bombshell witness a former stripper with a revealing story. Chew said I only date bad boys and he said well. I'M A bad boy. Two years after the murders of Thomas Hunter Surely Sherman and Roger and Mary Brownback. Anthony Garcia finally faced a jury there to witness it all friends and family of the victims commas hunters. Mom Clare Hunter who've been staying out of the public eye and surely Sherman's brother Dan rea two of the first people outside the courtroom. It's been here. That's been going on for a long time. A lot of this stuff sadler. Douglas County Attorney's Don Klein and Brenda. Beal had been prepping. This case for more than three years. You prosecuted for all former yes? Did you ever think about? Maybe we should just take the last two. That's easier sure that that was a discussion that we had many times but the evidence I think would still come in especially with two eight case so it seemed like the most logical thing was. We're going to let them together. Their theory was whoever killed. The boombox also killed Thomas Hunter and Shirley Sherman prosecutors summed up their case in a word revenge and they pointed to something they found on. Garcia's tablet one of the searches was just an interesting quote that had the word revenge in it so We were interested to know where that came from. And it's easy to find when you google. It was a quote similar to one in Shakespeare's. Play the merchant of Venice. If you harm me shall I not revenge load off of the merchant of Venice comes open a murder trial never before in my career? Motive thumbs up the case. That's our motive. Yeah the argued Garcia killed because he was angry about his termination from creighton and that it prevented him from being accepted into other programs to which he later applied as he continues to try and have some sort of a career at every time he tried to get into a different program or get licensed somewhere is creighton thing pops up and prosecutors said items found in Garcia's indicated. He was trying to destroy traces of his troubled past. Here's this trash bag sitting in the sink the chemical odor emanating from that. And it's all these papers in there in these papers after they're dried out is the termination letter from Dr Brownback. Dr Hunter Handwritten notes. And there's something about putting your fingers tape on your fingers park. Your car somewhere else. Walked to the location by common shoes. I common shoes sort of a list. That a killer would make yes it is. Prosecutors said the two sets of murders five years apart correlated with Garcia's career struggles. The first in two thousand eight came two weeks after he was fired by lsu Shreveport the second in two thousand thirteen followed another round of unemployment and financial troubles. He's trying to get jobs at temporary agencies. He's having financial issues. His home is going to foreclosure book. The argued that Garcia's original target on mother's Day two thirteen was Dr John Debut Tra a professor at Creighton who'd written him bad evaluations. She was somebody that he really thought was too hard on him was the cause of his termination to begin with. And you really had some animosity towards her two days before the attempted break-in prosecutors said Anthony Garcia used his phone to look up Dr Beauty Address analysis of a scant bit of DNA evidence taken from doorknob at the beautiful showed. There was a significant chance. That either Garcia or a male relative of his had tried to break in when that doesn't work because they're not home he then goes to wingstop right up the road and goes to plan B. where he searches brother. Brian Bex address. This receipt shows his location at wingstop at around two twenty six. Pm To fifty seven. They said Garcia used his cell phone to look up Dr Bags Home Address as for the gun. Used in the Brownback killings. Prosecutors argued the gun parts found at the brunt bat house fit a gun later found alongside a highway about twenty miles from Garcia's that gun was missing a crucial component. The barrel meaning a test bullet couldn't be fired. However what was left was licensed to Anthony Garcia. All of a sudden you get handed the murder weapon right now. That was a gift. I think it was divine intervention. Yeah the two thousand eight D. case however had no physical evidence what it did have was eyewitnesses several described seeing a silver Honda CR v with an out of state plate. This is a picture of the car. Anthony Garcia owned in two thousand eight when he was living in Louisiana. It's a Honda CR V. The thing that was noticeable was silver The people notice it as a type of SUV or CRV and they mentioned out of state out of state plates right. There was also that description of the man. People saw the hunter home that day. An olive skinned man wearing a baggy suit and they were all seeing the same person the same vehicle and the location. You're convinced that's not somebody who's lost and eventually finds their way out of that it fits and that's that's the person that did this crime and it and it fits. Anthony Garcia also tying it all together. Prosecutors called a bombshell witness a former stripper named Cecilienhof Hoffman told the jury that four years after the Dundee Murders Garcia made a shocking confession to her. She told the cops about it in this audio recording that he along time ago that I killed young boy an old woman and I said why I said why would you tell him. And he said they had it coming of all the pieces that we didn't have in two thousand eight case. That was a big piece. Presecutors said Hoffman had nothing to gain like publicly talking about her past life. She had two children. She had moved on her life and didn't want to go back in time but but she did but why would see mate that confession to her office said Garcia who was a regular at the Strip club where she worked wanted more than a lap dance. He was trying to impress her because she was trying to keep him at arm's length saying you know what he was getting too serious. I only date bad boys. Look good for me. Your doctor only date bad boys and he said his response to her was well. I'M A bad boy. I once killed a young boy in an older lady. It was just they needed to show. Garcia is guilt and we've all their evidence together. You know one piece by itself probably isn't enough but you put all those pieces together and it's a very good case. After twelve days. It was now the defenses turn. They would tell a different story one that attacked the very foundation of the prosecution's case candid. Look inside the defense team in real one real life in real life. You're flies on the wall. Ym You've never seen strategy session like this for the lawyers. Defending Anthony Garcia. It seemed the best defense was an all out offense. I'm not trying to ask somebody out to the prom. I'm trying to defend somebody and I'm GONNA use everything. We arsenal for lead attorney Bob. Mata junior that meant challenging or debunking everything jurors had heard from prosecutors for the past. Two weeks there were so many inconsistencies with the way that they said that it went down that it just never came together for me that he was guilty in a rare move. The defense team allowed dateline inside their private strategy sessions. Talk about our commute. Wanted to know it was in raucous group with Allison Mata serving as passionate adviser Robert. Motta senior the voice of experience something and local attorney Jeremy Jorgensen and an assortment of researchers sweating the details of the team rented a home out in West Omaha not far from the Dundee neighborhood. It was there that they plotted strategy. The first order of business knock down the theory. That Anthony Garcia killed two people in two thousand eight and two more in two thousand thirteen out of revenge. He gotta get recur stupid quote. Shakespeare quoque hurt me shine out revenge. According to the defense team Anthony Garcia had no motive to kill anyone. What's wrong with the prosecution theory? That Anthony Garcia blame the people at Creighton for everything bad. That had happened to him since he left. Creighton and the idea that when people would check out his resume they would inevitably get back to Creighton and they'd get a bad report about him. The problem with the state's theory is that Anthony Garcia would have been unaware of those communications. They don't let people in on those communications on the other hand. They pointed out Dr Hotter had actually handed Garcia. This short letter of recommendation after Garcia was dismissed from Creighton and got him his next job which a month after two months after he left Creighton for his part. Anthony Garcia seemed bored by all cameras. Were not allowed inside the courtroom but if they had been they would have shown what jurors saw. Anthony Garcia napping. He slept quite a bit during the trial. I'd say half the trial. And how do you think that that plays off to a jury? The two thousand eight case of Tom Hunter and surely Sherman was the most straightforward for the defense. There's no direct evidence. There is no smoking gun there is no DNA. It's all pieces and they're trying to put together this puzzle on the stand. None of the prosecution's eye-witnesses could ide- Anthony Garcia as the man they'd seen eight years earlier as for the Silver Honda CR V. Defense pointed out that not one of the eye. Witnesses ever mentioned the big spare tire that was on. The back of Garcia's car was big as all get out. I mean it's enormous and nobody said anything about that. Never never one mention of it which to me indicated. It wasn't my client's vehicle. That's the more likely answer. The two thousand thirteen bombeck case was more complicated for the defense team. Beginning with the fact that Anthony Garcia had been in Omaha on the day of the murders. How do you explain your client being back in Omaha and searching for the addresses of one person was killed and one person whose house was nearly broken into modern to? That's a tough question. I mean you're dealing with digital forensics ultimately the defense argued that because an investigator downloaded Garcia's iphone data ought to his personal following. The evidence was open to tampering. You've got a cop who's downloading what seems to be the most critical piece of evidence onto his own iphone. So it might about a cop who did that search and not your client. I'm not going to suggest that anybody You know specifically type the name in I'm just going to say that the way that the state presented the case and in particular that piece of evidence was not exactly truthful. The defense attorney spent a lot of time talking about the gun found on the side of the road and the AMMO magazine at the Brownback House. The fact that we have been very damaging evidence we want to cloud up about. It doesn't matter right there. So this o f want real life. I didn't realize wise on the wall man out also part in court. The defense argued could not prove a leak between the gun. Parts found that the Brownback House and the gun that was licensed to Anthony Garcia. The parts found in house or parts of a weapon that went through a catastrophic failure. Parts of our clients gun that were found on the side of the road showed no evidence of a catastrophic failure. And although it's the right kind of gun do if it's not necessarily the one of the right kinds of guns. You can't fire bullets in that gun. Chicago based defense team worked late into the night while keeping a close eye on their beloved cops were in pursuit of a world series title. Is God man on first and second? It was during these sessions over lunch. There's no point showing cards that don't have to be shown during breaks and at their rental that the defense team plan and prep their expert. Witnesses this really oil sounds interpretation. Everything laugh at something different. The DNA evidence linking Garcia to the beautiful break in they said was flawed and the prosecution's town line for the Brownback. Murders will suspect states window for one. This had to occur because of where they had our guy at certain times through cell phone records. It had to occur sometime between three fifteen and four o'clock four fifteen. According to the defense the boombox were killed later. Maybe around midnight. Long after Anthony Garcia had left Omaha and headed for our pathologists. Made it very clear that because of the the rigor mortis the conditions of the bodies The homicides didn't happen when he was in Omaha in the Dundee murders perhaps the biggest hurdle for the defense is the testimony of former exotic dancer society. Often Cecilia Hoffman. Statement was was huge. Remember she's the woman who quoted Garcia as saying that I play an old woman. But here's the thing Hoffman later said to a private. I hired by the defense that she remembered very little from that time bomb. Mata hammered at Hoffman's credibility on cross examination the concept. That is just so insane to me that this guy who's gotten a wave for essentially murder is now going to confess to a stripper that he knows that there's no way it's African Cup with them and that's your come online. Oh we I killed people. I killed an old lady and a young boy. I Dunno after three weeks. Both sides summed up their cases for the jury and hit all the familiar things. Then they placed Anthony Garcia's fate in the jury's hands toast from the defense but that was before the verdict of the jury do seen. My brother crashed in my mom. Cry Seeing the District Attorney. Cry Tough Moment Sometimes justice is not what happens in a courtroom but rather what comes out of it on the day lawyers finished their closing arguments in the Anthony Garcia murder case. A lot of people showed up to see what kind of justice would come out of courtroom three sixty among those waiting. Were the families of Tom. Honor of Shirley Sherman and yes. I'm Anthony Garcia. It was late afternoon when the jury the case then. The waiting began huddled on benches outside. The courtroom were reporters and spectators. The family and friends of the victims. Prosecutors retreated to their offices for what they hoped would be a short wait what the defense was ready to blow off. Steam. The models and their entourage settled in at a local bar several miles from the courthouse. The jury would be out for a while they thought so they feasted and toasted one another then as the sound system began to play the opening chords of the Rolling Stones Song Sympathy for the devil. Bob Mata said something. He wanted everyone in the bar. Two year this is for the Dabble after closings. You guys went out for drinks and we were there for that sympathy for the devil comes on the sound system and you say hey. That's the that's our theme song here. That's what we're going for. That's what you want sympathy for the devil. When I looked at the case of the state presented it was pretty obvious to me. They saw are sleeping. Client as the devil so yeah. I thought it was apropos. I thought it was appropriate. Not because I think he's the devil because they sure did state absolutely thought he was. The jury deliberated till nine pm that first night and all of the next morning tension ratcheting up with every tick of the clock. We thought we gave the jury a very solid case. We felt confident about it. But again you don't know then at about one in the afternoon word began to spread the jury verdict. I thought the verdict would be good. But you don't know until you hear it lining up alongside the families of surely Sherman and Thomas Hotter was the Garcia family. They were very respectful during the trial. I will say that I mean they didn't they didn't ever say anything like some some families. Thanks some families war right now. There there was not once everyone had crowded inside. The verdict was announced guilty on all counts. Breathe a sigh of relief. You just feel that that rush of emotion. It was a moment a long time. Coming for surely Sherman's brothers Brad. And Dan and her son Jeff reaction to the verdict relief of relief. You guys feel better. I think my sister deserved that. Her killer brought to justice just wonder was sitting with his mother and brothers while that verdict was read in that moment of joy and gratitude. He says he thought of his little brother. Tom A kid who never had the chance to grow up. Gets me thinking what where he'd be now and what? He looked like now. Talk like what he'd be doing. The most emotional moment came later that afternoon on closed doors when the victims families met privately with the people responsible for bringing this case to an aunt. We've basically gave Ronald applause. Came in because they did a hell of a job tough to be there. Or you're glad you were there. Were not really emotional. So seen my brother cry. See my mom. Cry Tired and seeing the District Attorney. Cry was tough while. Garcia's defense team faced a gaggle of cameras outside the courtroom in terms of what we did the Best Anthony Garcia's parents who spent much of their life savings on their son's defense spoke briefly with reporters rough. Everybody I know it's difficult for the other families who but it's very difficult for us to at this time. One last set of victims. He never wants turned around. Looked AT ONCE. I felt sorry for me I did. I saw his dad's head down a number of times. And you kind of in your mind. You don't know what they're thinking you know. Obviously until they were saddened greatly. Two years later a three judge panel ruled that Anthony Garcia should receive four death sentences for the murders of Thomas Hunter. Surely Sherman and Roger and Mary Brownback as he had through much of his trial. Garcia slept through his sentencing. As for the families he destroyed. Some healing may finally begin like a weight lifted off shoulders. There's not that constant cloud hanging over. Everybody wants to talk about things like that. Just more open better spirits when they read the verdict. Two deputies were taking him away and Alyssa. Motta was trying to convince Deputy Talk. Mendel let him speak to his parents because he will never get to speak to them again. What about all the other victims here? They can't speak to Shirley Thomas Roger. Berry they can visit him in jail Jennifer Bush Hager from the today show. And I'd love for you to join a book club. Read with Jenna.

#153 Robert Creighton

"Yeah. Lace? Welcome to first-class fatherhood. What do you hear what you say? Welcome everybody episode one fifty three of the podcast. I am happy as always to be here with you stopping by. This is your first time listening to podcast, please get over there and bang NAT subscribe button. You do not want to miss all the action. That's coming your way right here. I glass fatherhood. All right dads. I had a very special guest. You guys today? If you're a little bit confused by my introduction there that was of course, James Cagney who is my favorite actor of all time. And today, I have with me a first-class bother who portrayed Cagney on the stage in New York City. He co wrote and created Cagney the musical Robert Creighton is here with me, and he'll be joining me in just a minute. Robert currently performing in Disney's frozen on Broadway. So this is going to be a lot of fun, please stick around for the interview, I was introduced James Cagney at a very young age, my father who hadn't even he was fifty years old. He used to be a stand in for Eddie Fisher back in the day. And he's the reason why I love all the classic movies. I have already introduced Cagney. To my kids, and he was my favorite of all time. And for those of you who have maybe never heard of James Cagney. I would definitely recommend reading his autobiography Cagney by Cagney. It's a phenomenal book. He is known for being one of Hollywood's tough guys he played a gangster in so many pictures and just the way he fires a gun in the movie. He does it with such Nessim with such passion that it really it looks like he's trying to throw the bullets out of the gun. He's the best actor that I've ever seen. I love all the pictures did my favorite Cagney movie of all time is angels with thirty faces where he plays. Rocky sullivan. His most famous movie, I would say is Yankee doodle dandy where he plays Broadway legend, George m Cohen that usually airs every fourth of July. Some sure you've seen that or heard of it. At least I always get a chance to stop by and see Jimmy at the cemetery. He's buried in the same cemetery in New York as my parents, which is the gate of heaven cemetery. Whenever I go to see my mom and dad, I always swing by say a little prayer for Jimmy and his wife who were buried there. I also always go and say Hello to Babe Ruth whose buried in the same cemetery as well on a little side note there. But he was also born on the same day as my mother, which was July seventeenth. So there's a lot of connections there with Jimmy. He is definitely my favorite actor of all time. I am a huge fan of his. And he was just a street kid who took nothing from nobody. But he could dance like Fred Astaire. He was so talented. He could carry a tune with the best of them. So if you haven't ever heard of them, I highly recommend you check them out. So James Cagney has a very special place in my heart. And today's guest Robert Creighton is a very big Cagney fan as well. So this interview means a lot to me I could easily do an entire podcast here with Robert just discussing Cagney. But we're here to talk about fatherhood. So let's get to it and stay tuned. Because at the end of today's podcast, I'm going to be dropping a name of one of the bachelor's who's going to be joining me here next week in honor of next week's finale of the bachelor, I'm going to be having to bachelors on the show while one was actually the winner on the bachelorette. The other was on both bachelorette and became the bachelor. So while I'm going to drop one of those names at the conclusion of today's episode. Please stick around for the entirety of today's show. So keep it locked in you, dirty rats for the interview here with Robert Creighton, Allah glaze, and you're listening to first glance fatherhood. Two. Remember me to herald square. Tunnel again.

Right. And joining me now is a first-class father. You can see him performing in Disney's frozen on Broadway, which is currently playing at the Saint James theater in New York City. He also wrote and starred in the off Broadway production of tag, neither musical it is so cool for me to say Robert Creighton. Welcome to first glance fatherhood. Thanks to talk to you. Okay. Here we go. How many kids do you have? And how old are they? I got two kids. I got a seven year old boy R J Robert teams, creating the my dad's number one number two. He's number three and daughter. Samantha who's five? Okay. Very cool. One in one what type of sports are activities at into. Well, you know, I grew up in Canada. So I'm a big big hockey fan major hockey fan sort of a religious thing for us. And they're both skating at the moment, which is really fun. And they both loved that. My little girl does. Mastic twice a week started out a couple years ago, actually, and just, you know, dipping tow, but she's pretty good at it. So they invited her to come to this next level thing. So she goes for a couple of hours twice a week. And that and she's a ham like dad, so she's in a musical theater class to singing, dancing, and my son. He played quite a few different little sports soccer soccer programs a little T-ball program. But you know, what his big thing is art. He's visual he draws and create things and paint. And he's got a real gift that he did not get from my wife, or or me, he's really got something and we've been seeking opportunities for him to develop that, but artistic things are is Israel a passionate. The moment is pretty cool to watch. That's also now do you get in there and coach at all with the soccer teams or do you? Enjoy it more from the sideline why you know, what I haven't done. It yet. But I absolute look forward to that. Like that even before I had kids. I was something. I always thought I'm really going to enjoy and I will do that. As we go along. My what I do for a living is a wacky schedule. And so it's made a little challenging so far. But, but I I will figure that out as we go because I really want to okay, please, Robert take just a minute here to hit my listeners a little bit about your background. And what you do. So. Well, right now, I'm playing the bad guy in frozen on Broadway. Play the Duke of Wesson in the Disney's Broadway production frozen, which I'm having a lot of fun doing and primarily. I'm a stage actor this my eighth Broadway show and very fortunate to always what I dream to do the kids. So I get to make a living doing exactly what I moved to New York to do. So I'm really consciously grateful for that and done a bunch of episodes like TV stuff that shoots in. New York had a recurring part in the good fight CVS streaming show in the first season. And. Yeah. So I make my living as an actor. And right now when I say, my schedule as wacky are H shows week that we do, you know, six days eight h of the week. So it's a lot. And you and I have a connection we we when we were setting this up. I know you're big James Cagney fan. My big dream is an actor was to create a story about a musical about James Cagney. One of the great film legends of all time from the thirties and forties and fifties. And that was the before frozen. That was the last thing. I didn't New York we ran from fourteen months five hundred and two performances off Broadway in this James Cagney musical. And now we just announced Friday that were we go to Utah in the fall with an expanded cast instead of six and the cash there'll be at least twelve now, and we're planning to bring it back to New York to a Broadway theater in the next year. So very excited about that. Yeah. That would be amazing. Robert, I can't believe they have not made a major motion picture yet about him. So more on him and just a second year. When did father who committed a picture for you here? Robert and hadn't fatherhood change, your perspective on life. Yeah. You know, kids are. Seven fives. I said, and my wife, and I will have been married. Ten years later this year. I long before I became a dad. I mean, even as a teenager. I always knew I I have an son. And I always wanted name. Robert James, Creighton, the third, thankfully, my wife was amenable to that. Because that was something that I always had thought of and we started pretty early in our marriage, you know, wanting to have children a couple years, and then and then RJ came along. And I remember what I live in New Jersey on the cliff looking at the city, and my wife, and I went for a walk, and we said she we sat down a bench at one point looking just leading city glorious day. And she literally said she said, well, I'm about to make it more glorious. You're going to be a dad she said, it's just like that stood up. And it was like is are you telling me, and I was I was beyond excited. So that was my first moment of knowing I was going to be a dad, and then it, you know, it's a cliche to say changes everything. But it really does. I mean, especially as an actor, you know, always hustling and thinking about my career, and and me, and you know, it's a very sort of. I'm the product when you're an actor, you know. So it's it is by nature a. Too much focus on yourself and having a kid instantly shifts the priority instantly shifts, the perspective instantly shift, the focus, and for me also instantly. I was always motivated, but I'm definitely motivated now because I. I want to create a life for my kids that that they can have the opportunities that I had, you know, growing up to develop my towns and stuff like that. Which means I have to keep working and keep moving forward. So they can have that kind of life. So it's definitely motivational to yet. It really is something that's so hard to explain because fatherhood really needs to be experienced to be understood in. Appreciate it. Totally alley. And the other thing is I always say, it's the one thing that can never change in your life. Like once your father your father? I mean, you can you can get married and be a husband. But why people get divorced and then your husband anymore? You can be an actor. But you can you can that can change in a heartbeat. You know, everything else is temporary really when you will it down. But once you're a parent, you're once you're dead. You know, no matter what your relationship is like with your kid or what you're always a debt and. That's something that I love, you know, and I. It's been an amazing amazing journey now. It's so fun as they get to be five and seven and see what their passions are what they're interested in having conversations, you know, where their their their perspect- their perspective on the world starting to form. And and I love that part. I took my little girl yesterday for for Christmas. I gave them each three little I call him. Daddy, coupons and I made up so they get a daddy date for breakfast for an ice cream for nice cream date breakfast date, and then my son, and I both love movies. So he got he got a movie, and she got a Starbucks 'cause she thinks that's really fancy whenever she gets to go to Starbucks. So yesterday warning we went on our Starbucks date left, my son and my wife here. And and and I asked you what do you wanna be grow up when she said, I wanna be cooker. I said chef like show. She said, yeah, I want be shop. And and then she said I wanna. Puc restaurant food that fancy food. I wanna cook restaurant food and give it all the poor people in New York City. I was like. And you shouldn't said anything made my heart, happier. Because that was like, yeah. You're you're getting it, you know. And she's she's got a real perspective on the world, and we live in an apartment. Now. I said, what do you what do we get a house? What would be the three things that you'd like an house and she said dog for saying, which we don't have a backyard, and and then I coached her and said how about a pool she said. Yeah pool. So, but anyway, my point to that is now we're getting old enough to have these conversations and learn about their perspective on the world it's forming and and you're trying to in a way. You know, when I thought about being a dad to I always thought about, you know, helping them to mole to mold their mind and teach them the things that I believe are important in the world, those kind of things, and then really what you learn. As you go is there, of course, there is that. But also, they're they end up teaching you the things that you need to learn in your life. You know, like to increase your patience, and to, you know, be able to put their needs before your own, etc. Etc. And the teaching really goes both ways in in a very big way. Yeah. Well, said all right. I have to be honest with you here. The first time I saw the coming attraction for the movie frozen. I thought it was going to be a big flop. It turned out to be one of the highest grossing Disney movies of all time the highest grossing Disney movie, heist grossing animated movie of all time. Yeah. That's why I'm not a movie critic, what is it like for your kids? Robert. I mean, it's got to be exciting for the kids to have their father playing frozen. But how do they feel about you being the villain and have they seen the play? And do they give you any kind of criticism about your? Formats. Oh, that's funny. Yeah. They've seen it four times. We were we were out of town in Denver for a few months. Didn't the show and played it in Denver before we moved to Broadway, and actually my wife resigned from her job. She's a great job in advertising your resign that June. So she could come out. We didn't wanna be apart that long so they came out, and it was wonderful. They got to know the cast, and they came to the show several times out there. And then we got to New York they were there for the very first night the very first preview, and they and then they came on Father's Day last, June, which was great. So they've only seen it twice in New York. They wanna come all the time. But I said you can either you could come every night, and we live in a cardboard box, and, you know, eat Rama noodles or you can come once in a while. And we can actually have a home living 'cause we don't get caught for the show and Broadway expensive. But they yeah. They I think they. Love that. I'm in it. They're getting old enough. Now, where my son will say that you have to go to work tonight. Or, you know, sometimes you get a different jobs. You're not gone at night, you know, because I five nights a week. I'm not here putting them to bed. So I'm here Sunday and Monday nights, we have a Sunday matinee and my weekend is sort of Sunday night Monday. And then I go back toward Tuesday night, but side from that those moments they understand that. That's what I do enough my schedule, and we car about a lot of other time. But I think they love it. I'm in it. They they their friends at school some of them have seen it. And so the, you know, the moms get very excited about it and stuff like that. It's an they get they get a kick out of that. But yeah, they they would go every night. See if they could they they enjoy it. And I like taking them to the fear. Not when they're seeing the show, but just backstage and stuff and getting no actors are a lot of fun. So they. Run around occasionally to the dressing room and say hi to people stuff like that. And they that that's a really fun thing to be able to expose into. Yeah. So cool. Robert. All right. Many parents have kids out there who are aspiring actors what type of advice. Do you have in the parents of kids out there who are really trying to make it to the great white way? Yeah. It's do you know, it's a har-. It's not an easy road. Because it's like sports, you know. I mean, there's so many kids dream of being a professional athlete or professional actor on Broadway and very very small percentage. Get to make a living at it. So it's it is hard road. But if that's your passionate, that's what you really want. My advice would be to first of all building a big foundation of training. And I always say the wider and stronger, you build your foundation of training the higher you can build your career. So in other words, if you wanna be on Broadway. These days most people thing and dance and act. It used to be you could be great singer, not really dance, and you'd be okay, or you could be a great dancer and not really think so. Well, and you could still do good enough to answer you could still make it. But now there's the competition is such that you need to be good at all three. And you can't forget the acting part of it because that's what that's the basis for at all. But I would say your training wide. Make sure you're paying attention to all three of those elements, and then take every opportunity that comes your way. Whether it's a skit at school or getting up at your church and singing, or you know, community theater all those elements benefit this this foundation, you're building. So you're you can actually build a career on top of it. Yeah. Great advice. Robert. It's time to get an important word from our sponsors.

Are there any aspects of growing up in Canada that you feel like your kids are missing out on by growing up here? I know it must seem silly to you that we just had a couple of inches of snow and they closed all the schools, but have the kids been to Canada. Do you still visit do you have family members there and everything's still? Yeah. They love going up there. I'm the youngest kid till they have a lot of aunts and uncles and cousins up there, which we enjoy and my dad my dad's small town family, doctor just retired at age eighty four last year believe it or not picky six years as a doctor up there. And they they uh they love going up there, and my wife is from buffalo. So as I said to her that was really good on the resume because we go visit her family, and then we drive to more hours up to see my. But. I'm getting them into our we'll say hockey was such a huge part of my life growing up. I mean, my first dream out was to be the goaltender for the Toronto Maple Leafs. That literally was what I wanted to do. But if you met me, I'm Cagney sized by six in other words, and so that dream really wasn't happening. Even though I was passionate about it. But I am I am excited that they're starting to get their skating now getting exposed to that. And I think that's a real life enhancer. They know a lot about Canada whenever they say the alphabet. They you know, when they were growing up. I would explain to them that. Well, yes, it see. But we also say said we have my daughter dicta distant snacks that you can only get in Canada. So everyone who knows me knows to bring those particular all dressed Christopher's, which you cannot get here. But that her my number one bribing tool for my daughter or older crisper. So they I keep them in supply here. They. Definitely know that they're both Canadian and American and I four years ago four years ago this month for years this month, I became a US citizen as well. So I'm a dual citizen now and. Yeah. And I would say I'm very I'm proud Canadian. Like, I I always say, I'm so grateful that I can live here. Because it's where my dreams were housed like I wanted to be on Broadway. I want to live in New York. So my dreams were here. And I'm grateful to be a part of this community and here where there's so much opportunity. But I am very proud of you Canadian in in. I like how they I like their place in the world as sort of a leader for inclusion and for diversity acceptance and all those things I really I'm proud of that part too. And and certainly when it comes to sports, you know, the Olympics unless unless basically I'm Canadian when it comes to sports so unless it's the NFL of a giants fan. But yeah, the kids are definitely growing up with a sense that they belong to both. They sometimes talk about. How the three of us are Canadian. Mommy doesn't get to be Canadian yet. But, but yeah, they know they know that they have both sides of it. Yeah. Awesome. And I definitely have to reach out to some of the NHL guys. I haven't done that yet. I gotta get some of them on the show here. And yeah, I've I've gotten to interact with a lot of hockey players through when I was working at Toronto one time. I ended up I got on this little circuit of hosting being like the MC for golf tournaments for celebrity golf tournament and hosted these NHL ter- and the guys were so much fun. I mean, just great guys. So you forget the hockey players on definitely all right? We are both huge fans of James Cagney. You, of course, Qorogh created and starred in a musical about him. He's my favorite actor of all time. What was the origin of you doing this play? And what was the reception? Like is there still a big market out? There of people who are interested in seeing the old time legends of the silver screen like James Cagney. Let me tell you something one thing. I didn't know it was my personal passion to create this show. I did not know how many fans are still out there. There are like five Cagney Facebook groups that are thriving and have people who are they've Tae of his movies and aficionados all the details of his life etcetera etcetera. So there are those people, and although it it's getting, you know, the timing is such that the people who are real fans of his are getting older what they pass it along to their kids. You know? But one of the things I learned about. In creating a biographical musical is that you have to tell a story that people who come to see even if they're not fans of the of Cagney himself. They can still relate to that story and being gauged with this man's journey. And I think we really succeed in that. That's something I'm really pleased with and proud because people come never heard of Cagney, and they get very emotionally involved with his journey to the world. And he was a guy who stuck up for the little guy. He believed injustice he supported causes that were. At the time. Like, he he donated money to help discuss a boys, which were a group of young African American men in can't remember where it was right now, but they got falsely accused of a crime and they needed defense and he paid for their defense. He supported the cotton pickers striking con pickers in the San Joaquin valley in there, you know, fight for their rights and things like that. He was the first vice president of the Screen Actors Guild when he was doing films at Warner Brothers still making four hundred bucks a week. But he's one of the biggest movie stars are making millions of dollars any lily walked out of the height of his career, and that's not fair and through a year long court battle he won came back with script approval and making real money and all those things so he he was a fighter for Justice. Then like bullies stood up to Warner. And when people come to the show one of the things I'm so excited. About bring it to Broadway now is because I this is the way of talking about cag-. Maybe I think all the best thing about the ideals of America sort of persona fide in him, and in his journey growing up with nothing in the Lower East Side, and then becoming you know, one of the biggest screen legends of all time, and the people impacted all the way, and whether wherever you fall, politically, I think people come out uplifted by the show and feeling like hopeful and uplifted, and that is why I think his stories that are relevant now, whether you knew him from his nineteen thirty films or not very well said and his story is a great testimony to the possibilities. Available to everybody in America that you can actually you could come from nothing and make your way to the top of any profession that you choose through hard work relief and persistence on that do you have a favorite James Cagney film. I know you're from Canada, maybe cabins clouds or something like that. You know, they show up. They won relative to what you just. Said they shot the fighting sixty nine in Canada and using the Royal Canadian Air force and Cagney was given by them. A bracelet. Fact, I'm talking to in my bedroom when my jewelry box right here, the given a bracelet. I I'm like, we're on TV. I'm gonna go get it out. So you can see it. But anyway, giving a bracelet and this woman from New Hampshire bought it in auction years and years ago, and she came to the show drove down she even saving her money to come down to see the show. She read about it online cetera. She came down and at the end the show she waiting, and she was like in tears, the biggest hug, and she said, I want you to have this. I've had it for twenty years told me the whole back story of it and gave it to me and I cherish it. But it they the air force gave it to Cagney. She got it at an auction somehow, and then gave it to me after the show. Oh, thank you for telling story. But the answer your question. It's it's a tough one Yankee doodle dandy. Everyone's gotta see one of the greatest movies of all time that doesn't lift you up and and at the same time making what a what a phenomenally incredible dynamic actor Cagney was there's nothing that will do the roaring twenty. He now out that's one of my major favorites. He did with Humphrey Bogart's Eddie bar out one. Yeah. 'cause he's only thing movie funny, tough, he's romantic, he's he's everything in that movie. And I love it angels dirty faces. Of course, you know. And then like you say there's some of the little obscure, I love taxi or speaking Yiddish all the time. He was so proud of the fact that he was the only gentile Screen Actors Guild member who was fluent in Yiddish. He's very proud of that I'll tell you what surprising to me Robert is that he only did one film with the great ever G Robinson. It was a little known film called smart money, which is. A great movie bars. Call off is in it as well. I'm just amazed at the studios never paired Robinson and Cagney together. Again. I don't know. I wonder I wonder about that too. I wonder if they wanted to keep their personas separate, you know, 'cause sometimes they get I mean you, and I don't know, but people who are on the periphery of older films. They get them confused. Sometimes, you know, maybe maybe the time they were they had some similarity. So they they wanted to keep apart. I don't know. Yeah. I can go on and on here about James Cagney and all his films. I know you can as well. Listen you've had so much success. You've made it to Broadway. What's coming up next for you? What kind of goals, you have yourself a future? Well, first of all my next big push is to bring Cagney to Broadway theater 'cause every time we've done it. The word of mouth is such that and people leave so uplifted, and they tell their friends, you gotta see this show. I feel like if we can get it to Broadway theatre where there's nine hundred people seeing it tonight and going to tell their friends the same thing that will happen when we were doing in the year where there were two hundred people or two hundred fifty people going out and telling their friends, so my big push right now is to get that to a Broadway theatre. I think we're going to do it. And then for me personally as I said, and as it relates to what we're talking about today being being a father. I mean, a career where doing H shows a week is, you know, it's my passion. And I love it. And but ultimately five years from now, I don't wanna be doing Broadway all the time as my only source of providing for my family. So I'm really because I don't wanna be that. I wanna coach literally I wanna coach soccer team. And I wanna do those things. So my my big push at the same time is to get into more TV and film. So I can have a little more flexibility have weekends have the ability to still make a good living doing what I love. But have more time to be a dad. So that's my my five year plan is to move into something like that. And I'm doing more writing as well have Cagney now, which is great. And after we get into Broadway. It will go into the world and other people will do it and that'll be that'll be wonderful. And I wanna create right more things like that. So those are the those are the next step for me. Also. All right. Let's get tagged the on Broadway. That would be so cool last thing I'm gonna hit you with here. Robert, I love to ask all the that. I get on the podcast what type of advice? Do you have that new dad or for that about to be father who's out there listening? Yeah. Gosh, that's a whole. We could talk for these. Same outta time about that stuff. I guess well, one of the things is and I'm into it. Now, my kids when things and you can say to yourself to the dad is it a big problem or a little problem? I think that is what I would say just remember that question. 'cause I ask you when something seems very dramatic. See my five or seven year old like the world is coming to an end. And there's a meltdown happening. I say now I understand you're set about that is a big problem little problem, really. And you know, the same thing you can say to yourself when you have a new child or your belt to have a child, and you're stressed about things or you know, and you don't have don't feel prepared or whatever. Or or something happens in your you say to yourself is it a big problem? Little problem. Ninety percent of the time ninety five percents time. The answer is in the big picture. It's a little problem. So it's not worth the stress rings IT that you might give it you say, hey. Is this mind get you? It's a little problem. There are big problems, of course, and health issues that you have to dress in a major way. But, but generally, there's a lot of things that you think in the moment our big problem. But if you step back and say is this a big problem or a little problem? The answers often it's a little problem. It might help you move through it a little more easily. Great advice. This has been a lot of fun. Robert Creighton, I have to say, thank you so much. Give me a few minutes of your time. And I have to tell you that not only do I thank you my mother. Thanks, you my father. Thank you, my sister. Thanks you. And I thank you. I love it, man. I love it. And and when we get to Broadway, I want you. They're opening night. Brother. Come on. No doubt. I will definitely be there. I pray that you do make it happen. I would love nothing. More than the bring my family to New York City to watch Cagney on Broadway. So best of luck to you with that. Good stuff. All right. I'm going to wrap things up and just a minute here. Back to wrap things up here on first place. Fatherhood. I gotta give a special. Thank you.

Powerful to he owns every. Okay, fine. So we agree. Very sincere divorce going on lot of things happen. I so he two stories. I we had the he's dating some very attractive life. Former Fox News lady or something super hot way out of his league. If he wasn't Jeb as what nuts for me is picture at the Golden Globes, which is like this week this weekend. So everything is the news that he's hooking up with this woman who still married or husband who's far superior looking. But the husband is the one still who has arm around her and he's like next door. It's a very very bizarre. Boy, it's a legitimate in DC when. Yeah, when you're talking big money all the regular rules should go out the window. This is all also. You as an alive? She. Yeah. He's also like a robot revolution. So I think that's an important distinction. I think as those killed people for he's fucked. Robots? Fuck maybe that was nice little legal. These definitely killed people. Maybe but what is that like the most dangerous game? Really should he has like imple- if you were hunting like Tommy the juices that the death on? Yeah. Noble death. Tell me I would take Trump would death over paintball. You see him freaking out when of the paintball gun. Never thought about that. He goes, you're not really thinking about shooting me. Are you like literally pulling hair the fuck outta you? Now. He was he was legitimate. Oh, I think we should do that. Dave you want to send Hake to a black hole. Why can't we hunt team? That's point, Dan, huntin, Portland. I to hunt other no we'll on team partner he can onto other people. Now. I honestly in this John here who I hunt for good hunt. Anybody I mean, wouldn't it be fun?

But I didn't know what he likes. Yeah. I wouldn't wanna look like before this all happened. That's not crazy. No. Yeah. Actually owns the world. He has all of our our home addresses. He knows what they house. Welcome the club, Dan. Yeah. That's true. We're because you've been compromised because you're the weak link. Now, you can't keep yourself buttoned up as compromise. As can be supposed to talk about it. But I don't even know what the hell's going on. I know they catch. The somebody told me the cost. Do you think there might be said that we've? You said like do I get a picture of them? And and they are in the back. Cameras. Do you think part of the reason why even compromises like people high level people will tell you don't talk about it yet? You still talk about it. Maybe it's really put me in a box. What I talk about it. You can't years compromises anyone ever bought everything. So. Granted. Guys know who you are. No that you've got money flying all over the place all the time. What I'm about to set? No, don't say. Well, I kind of want him to do it. Well, no, I just had that. So that I could be okay. Got it smart, man. You can't do that. That's like internet law. You were found by internet law. Don't say it just to. Nothing say say say it more Leah pussy wouldn't say. No, you know, what? Kevin don't don't make them say this move on soft. It's I'll just say that I spoke of secret service agent today. So there's this goes a lot deeper than you think. And then she's like at an airport. I gotta go. Where Steve is like Jason Bourne. Jason Bourne wakes up. He's he's framed for murder. I don't know. What's happening? Right. And no one's telling you anything. So I guess I can't say anything I'd pawn or you at the center. No idea. All I know is I heard the bubbly Yang was very close the scene of the crime. No, I did hear that get the fuck yourself. Sources are you know, I was sitting there. I'm seeing there for that conversation gang was spotted in Burley is Rochester New York near Burlington, Vermont. I don't know. I don't think close enough to be like it was them. Now. No. What's far? I think everything close wells. It's only six hours. Closer to hear economy. You can be trading with China one minute do by the nets. Everything's close that I don't know what the hell's going on. But I've been compromised I've been compromised big time. Beats. So last night, you should make one of the team Portland, mentally, you should just take Tommy's identity. You're now just anyone. What makes me ill nervous about this? The secret service agent couldn't get my number and somehow contact my dad my dad's vol. Listen. The secret service. They are smart. They work that was huge. The money. I ask why or call me every ten seconds. Never let this one. Go. Sure. Mail was a big deal. Oh. Rather rice pilaf next time won't fucking. Cow like Tommy just had to handovers identity you stole it. All you kind of cool. I'm compromised forever because they don't give a new social like oh win that damn that eat, then have everything. Every done done for this. It's just to me. Now the world is not need. Dave. I was that guy. Oh, oh, there's a place all of us. Other Dave speakeasies all bad. That's what a night last night four of them that I counted. And we had Seton Hall Butler Butler with the last three I one on that we had a walk off charge in temple Houston one on that yet. We had a point to second foul in Xavier urge town or and then the worst ending ever seen in Creighton Marquette. It was so bad. You know, how said I can't lose. Why have Creighton minus two and a half year and this just happened? So it's Creighton ball this point, eight seconds. We're inbounding. So this happened. We threw out a bounds. So let's fast forward because that means that it's an inbound now for Marquette. On the other end, but still only point eight right? So. And right now, they're reviewing it. I don't know if it was good or not. I am in stunned Ville, Creighton has the ball. Did you watch this? Creighton had I had also had Creighton I had Creighton minus two and a half they're up by three backup backup. Because you you. You're telling the whole like I told you it was just as criminal even of. Nothing's okay. So there Creighton is up five points. We have Creighton woes. Obviously, I don't know if there's good I've created minus three Davis, create minus Tuta half. Right. Craig's up five points. There's eight seconds left. Marquette comes down shoots three bricks. It agai rebounds it underneath the hoop. Like, no one's there puts up the layup scores with point eight seconds left to make it a three point game point, eight seconds left. Okay. Eight sacks eight seconds. I have crate minus two and a half. They're up three. It's Creighton ball underneath the basket with point eight seconds left. They throw like an inbound pass guy at half court who I think forgot the rules about while. It was like. Nope. Not touching it. It went all the way out of bounds. The other touched it back for on the baseline, eight seconds. Inbound guy hits catches it. Somehow catches it lands shoe re people guarding them hits the free. And then they lose overtime. Great. All they had to do was throw it. He's gonna start to be in touch. None of the way was so badly. All the news. The league. It's impossible lose the ball. Kevin. The worst of all he could have literally just looked of Marquette guys right in the eyes. Just throwing some. Yeah. Over the done you guys. I mean, I feel like there's bad beats all the time. God. Yeah. Mathematically like, it can't get worse out. There's no team. I guarantee it not MS ever lost in that situation ever. Over over a zillion guy. Marcus Howard hit like four threes in a row. So hot fifty three in the college twice. It's the second time. It's done yet. Supermarket brawl. I just wanna to know what. This theme song is the theme song, maybe laugh. That's it. That's this topic was just a question. Yeah. Okay. There we go. So you get things done around here. You put on your fucking show someone please. Why do you comment aren't as well you when you you said? It might be from naked gun. I don't think many people don't think naked gun anymore. It's like four years old. We did not say why is this on there? We said you put on supermarket fight and Kevin. And I went and tried to look and find it, and none of words that you put on the not even that you wrote in the Email supermarket fighting Dan said, what is it? You said it's a supermarket doesn't really. For for. Was the grocery store. Voi-? Couldn't connect the dots. We scroll. All. Russie ones keywords.

I don't wanna talk about this out spoiled fucking. Adam case, he's the fucking worst world. I mean, I disagree. He just got fired from being a fucking mediocre Koji. Sees I know it's like like he knows division. He knows what it takes to beat. The patriots. Everyone. If the jets. Miami. We are good to go. Yeah. I just like you. I don't trust him to groom Donald's. I lock only of steak you one hundred you do. Yeah. Why best best season for Peyton Manning is entire career out of that has nothing to do that. Nothing that is the stupidest or you know, does me I mean who's the Broncos Peyton Manning that nothing? Anybody to get into this coaches, grooming quarterback thing, I think is all over eight. I think like quarterbacks good like, okay? Would you Fisher? This or. Don't say that. That's for Jay Cutler best season for Tina, those guys stink. I j color and Ryan tannehill. He was he was part of their best. They raise the guide gripe fucking. I mean, it hasn't been around long enough to really groom anybody in a major cooking. Nice by even letting you talk about this, by the way, I him put this on the Kevin I guess like going from fired tires weird fuck mode. I did. I did. I would rather guy won the Super Bowl and been around Aaron Rodgers like the last ten years. I'd rather out them gates, by the way. Did you hear mush is called the Butler game when he just went total mush like on that bad beat? No, he just came in or stain. What the fuck mush says? Still on Seton Hall two and a half year. I see. Holy shit. He hasn't said yet, right, but is leaning towards football. I think it's directly related to cliff Kingsbury to thing is doing it to go play. Very I guess is infatuated. I saw that part of it. Yeah. Interesting Keiler is. I mean, he's a freak man thirties. Really good young player. He's going to be a tremendous player calories. A freak and followed him since he was a sophomore in high school and just think the world of him and what he can doing a football field, and I've never seen one better in high school. And he's starting to show it now at the college level. I don't have enough skip things to say about him. He's phenomenal. I've never seen him have a poor outing not one which quarterbacks it's impossible to do. But he's done it. And. I take him with. I figure the draft. If I could I know he signed up to play baseball, but he is a dominant football player. And I would I would take the first pick. I don't hate the move, but I would play baseball if you can make more money. I don't think you can really get your signing bonus right away. Yeah. Here's a real comes onto because a couple months ago. Yeah. Go play baseball a five million dollars. Because I thought maybe he wouldn't be short people might not hype 'em up. You might not be a first round pick. If your first round pick in the NFL is a quarterback, you'll make Jackson Mead like seven million guarantee. I guess if you. His shorts baseball. Because if you're good baseball, you gonna make law more because they didn't do it. Play for us. Good quarterback you make more quarterbacks. Get paid so much money. Like people were thrown out like what about Alex misled fucking money outfit's made for being completely Joan? It's like a hundred million dollars for being completely average. The average. I mean, I know he's he lies like he's not a world beater Kirk cousins. Like, I think I think the only physician it makes sense for is a quarterback if it was any other position for if he was running back wide receiver. Whatever goes real fucking good though. Yeah. But even if he's bad like Jake locker who is a fucking first round pick who flamed out was league for like, I was just made Jake LA. Three to four. Yeah. What he made like twenty dollars. All right. Well, that's that's not that much like. Two years there. Not not for a while in baseball, though. Yeah. But if you go to baseball, okay, but not for a long time. He's very quickly. And then he could even go like if he sucks in football. I think you can go from football baseball football. So I would I would give it a world. Also, I guess the part says like someone sits like, hey, man. You can you can make five million dollars, and maybe have a chance of being major league baseball, and you have to ride the bus and do all the stuff or you could be a quarterback in at least you're gonna every first round pick gets shot. Yeah. I mean, you also get brutalizes human. Yeah. There's that. And I feel like even that is a little overstated now because the quarterback rules have changed. Tim tebow engaged breaking news to Miss South Africa has universe. Is that the girl who won the this? I watched I don't remember. I think she must have won six needs. Yes. She does. She has a lot on Africa's classic though like celebrity. So I read something and what twenty seventeen twenty seventeen I read an article in which you know, Tibo like was asked about his I I'm very private about accurate. And then I mean every detail this proposal is like every detail to what he says, he sold it. Yeah. Yeah. So for money, which is I guess T-Bone does T-Bone money. I think he does. Yeah. Probably does he should've played baseball get around playing the fucking Mets. Yeah. Sex though believes burden. No, I think you fucks chicks in the ass doesn't count it. Probably. That's fair. Anybody who thinks had sex is a fucking idiot. Yeah. Florida. These florida. That's chip. Never that all-time picture. We had one of the ones that like the chick with amongst. Water. Yeah. That was one of the first like. Put on something that was like pre internet internet. Yeah. We just claim that picture like GM back. I have no idea where it came from. And we can't sports by Brooks probably the old like newspaper banner that just like stuck on there. I know a lot of people talking about you, dick. Yeah. I don't know. People are really mad about. Oh, yeah. But what happens is if you if I were like, we were joking about it on the act. I mean, everyone's like your triggered like no job about it. Like, I've always said is small dick. It's funny. But I mean, like Roan has a blog. Well, I think there is only part. That's like a little weird is like they have not spoken to anyone in the office. So they came in roasted people, I still don't care. He told he should have them on the read his blog to there too. If there would have been. What would it ruins his blog, lower plastic surgery jokes things? But from I think they're fine with it. I mean, they're pretty rough and tumble girls from what I they'll take. But I think that'd be good. Right. It's one of those things it's like it said, and then it becomes a bigger thin on. I don't think anyone. I mean, how would be met like carrots like they don't they said Hake had to inch dick that's a micro penis, micro penis, that's like an official here. I have a good zero Wednesday two inch doesn't exist. But you know, I was thinking. Fuck. I can't remember now. Cut out the compromise part. Will we should retort about it? Now, it's really hard to Ed. Conflict. It'd be a couple of things she's important. But I don't know. What's happening? It's like quite alarming. She hasn't called me back and couldn't find my number and filming. Imagine if you're league the year like imagine the of the agent like that's how deep icus what if that wasn't an agent. Ooh. What those some of the work. I here's the time. I'm pretty convinced. Now when I use my computer, someone's watching me, well, definitely. Cheers. You really watch your you're too late. They have everything there will be Portnoy jerk off tape coming out. No, Dave give out. Care. Get this. Do you to sit there with your cheeses in one end looking up care? No one wants to see that of himself. I've seen it. Yeah. What other people have? I mean, I. I know. The whole. You might film it watch it back that watch your own jerk off is enough. There's nothing that could stunned me out there. I've seen it. I hope you guys don't have to see it. God damn right off into a cheese in eight it. Oh. We don't know. Oh, no. No, I would never write down tonight that knowing it could be out there tomorrow. So. Added that will get ahead of your things done that is not health stashes jerk off often food and ate it. That you had to. It is like a ultimate lie detector because I know I'm not in control of anything. I have. Not compromise.

Set with a five Blade Razor waited handle Shave Gel and travel cover offered just three bucks plus free shipping just go to Harrys DOT COM and enter five thousand at checkout. That's Harrys Dot com code. Five thousand enjoy with that. We shift from Major League baseball over to the Hardwood. We'll talk some college basketball and some NBA here with John Ryan professional handicapper and contributor over at Bang Book Dotcom at John Ryan Sports and the number one on twitter John. How's it going today man? I'm doing well. How about you do very well buddy very busy time of the year and say at least three weeks till opening day conference tournaments in full swing nine thousand nine hundred conference tournament start next week including the big east and the big ten. A couple of conferences that we're GONNA talk about here on today's segment. But before we get into that something that you wanted to mention here. And maybe this is something that could have some relevance once we get to the NC Double A. Tournament that you just don't feel like there's a dominant player in college basketball this year. Yeah that's true and I really think there's a dominate team. Either we're so used to the Duke Kentucky North Carolina. Names like that Kansas of course being the top in Kansas says at the top this year. But it's I think the season has been one of the best for me to enjoy From start to finish. And it just seems. Like it's a big crescendo into this Into these big tournaments and then of course the NCAA Torment itself will be just absolute chaos in terms of trying to figure out a perfect bracket which has never been done so with the with the theme There really isn't any Wrong call transcendent player. Either like Zion Zion Williamson last year. Was you know how big is but he was two hundred eighty five pounds and he was a man among boys and you know dominated every every time he was on the core this year. There's some names are i. Think new on the on the horizon you starting with the seniors to. They're not freshman. That are coming in one year and being so great. And then they go and you can look at Kentucky Who is notorious for that and they actually have Five players essentially scoring about the same number of points per game which he's never had that as a as a nucleus on an on any of his teams. It's always been one or two studs that come in and they go to the NBA so on Seton Hall. You have senior Miles pound and unfortunately they lost their Senior Day game last night. The Villa Nova But being in Philadelphia area wasn't too disappointed but he had an amazing history. If I remember ready he broke his ankle his senior high school after he signed to go to. Seton Hall and came into school completely out of shape in my fifty sixty pounds overweight and now he's turned himself into this Guy That just can't stop working according to what you read From what is coach says? And He's definitely a wooden award candidate. My opinion niece completely different than he was four years ago. another guy out of the Big East in the big ten is the senior Pritchard from Oregon Another guy in the big ten that we talk about all the time is junior Luca Garza and then a one that is really kind of a surprise nobody thought of is Dayton and A. Ob topping is having an incredible year every time you watch him play You know he's making dunks like he just came. Believe so when they all get into the tournaments. Assume it's GonNa be so enjoyable so much fun to watch it. I would have to say though that might pick would be probably marquette a senior Marcus Howard who has had three fifty point games which. I don't think that's ever been done in the history of college basketball this year. He's accounting for thirty three percent of Marquette scoring and what's really remarkable about his plays that there's very few possessions that he touches the ball. He doesn't get immediately doubled in triple team. And he's still scores. Twenty seven points a game. So that fundamentally that's a problem for Marquette when they get into the tournaments because they have one guy basically contributes thirty three percent of their output But just to watch him play and how good he is even when he's doubled. It is amazing to me speaking of Miles Powell. He's got a big game coming up here on Saturday. Seton Hall goes on the road at CREIGHTON. Creighton WINS. They share the big east regular season title. If seton hall wins they'll end up winning it outright here with their fourteen and four record in conference play so a big one here really for both of these teams and how important necessarily seating be for the Big East conference tournament does because all of these teams have already shown a propensity to Kinda beat up on each other but for Seton Hall going for that First Outright title nineteen ninety-three certainly something they would like to have but Creighton a very very good team at home as we know that. Jump shooting type of team. Generally those teams are better at home. What do you think here about this one in Omaha coming up on Saturday Creighton? Quite a bit Already in this game and a lot of it has to do with the the loss at Seton Hall suffered last night I think the pressure of what you mentioned if not winning a conference a championship since Nineteen ninety-one is is weighing on them and it was pretty evident last night They didn't play horribly. Bad obviously played well. We didn't play well. Enough to be A young Villanova team but one that has one of the best coaches in the history of the game so the I've always had creighton as the top ranked team in the conference for about the last four weeks. You've been talking I still feel that way. So I'm I'm thinking cranes GonNa be about probably about a four and a half point favorite in this game. I wouldn't be surprised to see that high It could also open with Creighton as a two and a half point favorite Again we get back to the betting behavior of the public so house. Republican look at last night's game can get a two way seeing all is going for the championship and there are going to be so focused that there's no way they're going to lose this game or it's going to be the complete opposite spectrum where. Oh my God. They had the chance to win. They blew it so now. They're going to go on the road against Creighton win so I think that's what will be a real challenge for the lines meager to decide whether it's going to be a skinny favourite or maybe his hi four and a half one another interesting game at other interesting spot. Here coming up on Saturday Villanova's on the road at Georgetown and as Georgetown not a great team in fact they've dropped five in a row but I think there was a big win for Villanova just simply because you know that that they needed not that they need any sort of validation but this is a pretty young team and in fact something. That's really worth considering here as they go play. Georgetown on Saturday is that Villanova's not deep team. And I mentioned this yesterday and my preview that leading the year here. They've got some young guys. They've got a couple of freshman a sophomore and a couple juniors playing really really big minutes that they hadn't really played previously last night. They didn't get a whole lot of contributions from their bench. They haven't gotten a lot of contributions during their bench. Most of the season here now. They've got this gaming Georgetown that seemingly means nothing to them. You know what I mean. If they go out there win the Big East. That'll help their seating for the Ncaa Tournament. There obviously already in the tournament. Do you worry about a lack of focus here for Villanova on Saturday at Georgetown? I don't Adam Because I think they still. There could be a three way tie for the regular season championship. And I could be wrong with the tiebreakers but actually Creighton wins. They will have swept Seton Hall Which means that I think that's the first tiebreaker. But right now created over are tied and I think they split. I'm they did split. So then what happens if If seen all does lose to Creighton all three of them are going to be thirteen in five for the regular season. So I am. I actually haven't researched what the tiebreakers are. But for that reason. If I am right on I think Villanova's going to play as focus is a good last night of simply knowing that a win get's them possibly a tie create wins. Laugh opt to look up and that's the important thing too. Is You know you got a lot of conference tournament implications now you do have tiebreakers and things like that and you know. Some conferences do reward. The top seeds either with you know buys double buys triple buys the timing of the game stuff like that. I don't necessarily feel like that's a big concern for Villanova and a team like J. Right I think maybe if you're gay rights you know you kind of enforce this game to the degree that you know. Hey Boys we don't WanNA develop any bad habits going into the conference tournament but at the same time it's also a thing where we've seen coaches do this. We've seen coaches kind of take a take the foot off the gas pedal a little bit. Give their guys some rest. We'll see at the big ten tournament next week and we'll talk about the big ten here in a few minutes but we'll see the big ten tournament where you don't really want your team playing four games in four days with the NCAA tournament less than a week away. You know so you may win a game or two and then kind of scale it back. Take your hand off the throttle a little bit and go ahead and give your team a little bit of rest. I don't know if Jay Wright does that but I think he's in the right type of situation to possibly do that because he's got five guys that play essentially seventy five plus percent of the minutes available and they're younger guys necessarily haven't been in that type of role so I kind of look at this as maybe a little bit of a letdown spot four Villanova. Maybe a little bit of maintenance spot coming up here on Sunday or Saturday. Excuse me so if you like Villanova maybe you and I might have to cope with a little bit of a friendly wager on that one okay. Uh-huh definitely will do that with you. One other game in the Big East to talk about here the surging providence friars and. This is a team that I thought coming into the season. I kind of like providence thought. There may be one of those middle tier shots to make a big push here in this league. I didn't think Seton Hall would be as good as they were. I didn't they create and was be as good as they are Villanova expected. Of course we very good but I thought providence had a legitimate shot to go out there and win this conference and maybe they do win the conference tournament but they've won five in a row here already and they should get other confidence-building game this weekend against the Paul. I definitely agree there as we talked to him on the show here several weeks now when you have to go play at providence it. It's a nightmare for for the road warrior for sure there are eighteen and twelve now and a definite bubble team and if they win a couple of games in the tournament at least maybe get semi final. I think they're in It kind of reminded me of a purdue team in the big ten and produce record is is slightly worse but produce had some tough losses. But now they're starting to just click and that's a team as we talk about the big ten that could make a run and also get an invite so the with province their fifteen fourteen against the spread for the season with one Porsche. Eighteen twelve overall Dave one as you said five in a row and covered all five by significant margins which means they've they've done something here to improve their game of course the public Centimeters not catching up to him. You know it's it's it's similar to You know a stock received in the market. Now that is trending trending trending Media Tesla is a good example in in doing things ninety nine percent of people in the world that follow that stuff. Don't think it's sustainable yet. It keeps going higher and I think that's the example here with Providence Just because team wins five in a row against the spread those being you start fading on You know it's like flipping a coin heads entails if you have seven previous flips that were heads. It doesn't mean tails is do. Some a term called mutually exclusive. Every flip is unique to itself and each game is unique to itself as well. Where's trends that we use to develop systems and abetting queries? That produce profits over time Providence is a team that is very scary right now. If you're the opponent let's transition over the big ten side of things here because we've got a few talking points in this conference that I want to make sure we got some time to spend on the NBA here at the end. But we fast forward ahead to Sunday here in the big ten Ohio State and Michigan State. A game on your radar and look. I mean this conference tournament in in Indianapolis can be absolutely crazy. You've got at least eight teams that have a legitimate chance at winning this thing. You probably wouldn't have said that. About Ohio State. Maybe four or five weeks ago but the buckeyes now playing a whole lot better. Michigan State's won four in a row. Tom Izzo doing his usual March thing here but Chris Open takes his team up to East Lansing on Sunday. What stands out about this? Ohio State Michigan State game to you will depend. Maryland does Near Game. This could actually be for all the morals of the regular season as a lot of things that have to happen for that to occur. But this is a big time rivalry and this'll be for these teams. They went through their adversity. And it looked like what's wrong with them. They were supposed to be so good and there are playing bad. They were losing games badly. It just didn't seem to be working. The chemistry wasn't there on either team. But again you mentioned the great coaching they have. And now they've completely reversed course and show why they are a top five team are St Louis ranked US highest third and December Michigan. State was the preseason number one So when I see these these things roll around again. It's the public sentiment. The way people vote Is sentiment so you have these. Yo Yos where of I shouldn't say Yoyos as voters but The roller coaster ride of the rankings. Where a team? All of a sudden that was deemed the top five is now suddenly falling out of the polls in what changed And I asked myself that question every every single week if not every single day if the players and the talent or there. I've always presumed and presume correctly that they're gonNA figure it out and get it right. State on January twenty third. I just got done losing Six of the last seven outright seven game against the spread losing streak and then all of a sudden if almost out of nowhere they played northwestern in Indiana big win over Michigan. They kind of laid it on the road at Wisconsin but now have ripped off five of the last six so overall. That's eight of the last ten that they've won and covered and again the team like a providence The the line has not Ohio state. So I I would stay would be one of those teams that I would not even WanNa step in front of the freight train and try to fade them. So they played annoy tonight at home and You're the lines five and a half. I'm a little surprised that that's not. I expected it to be around seven But you'll annoy is playing very very well and it's an example of the big ten. I said that I wanted to see seven teams. I was predicting seven teams in the top. Twenty five and I'm still wrong because this week. It went from six to eight so you have eight of fourteen teams ranked in the top twenty five. And that hasn't happened for for many many years. Curiouser with the Ohio states sentiment kind of growing almost quietly compared to Michigan state because everyone just expects Michigan state to be good in the month of March. Obviously they're trending that way. What do you think this line looks like here on Sunday? I Have Michigan State disfavored by a little bit only because it's at home I can tell you right now. I I like the highest state in that game a lot and I like him even more they defeat Illinois by double digits which I I. I will expect that to happen tonight. It's not really that Bodas statement being at home and they're five and a half point favorites to win by eleven but I think that that type of win will make it four in a row and then they have the finale against Michigan State. And I you know I just like I like. What are the early game on Sunday? Here this is a noon. Eastern time tip off is Michigan and Maryland and other game that you wanted to talk about it obviously Maryland with a lot on the line. Here I mean you know. They are trying to get at least a share here of the big ten conference title. They've dropped two in a row. They're starting to slow down a little bit. It would seem but this is a tough team to WANNA back right now. They've also lost two in a row. Not really doing a whole lot in terms of adjustments. They're down to five hundred here in conference play. They do wind up having a game tonight at home laying a big number against the BRASSICA which they should win. But what about this early tip on Sunday against Maryland? Well then I think line will come out pretty close to pick maybe Maryland. Fear by one Maryland kind of is going through the same thing. Seton Hall has down the stretch with this kind of stumbling a little bit Maryland has lost a three of their last four after winning eight in a row So that came to an abrupt stop against a team called Ohio state So I guess when you hit that brick wall and it does bring in the question of like maybe we're not as good as we thought we were Which does go through a teams that are comprised of twenty year olds So I think that's the maturing process that Marilyn's going through right now. Michigan has been pretty volatile In terms of their performance only team more Volta Has Been Iowa. We have mentioned Iowa when they when they play bad. It's it's horrifying in when they play. Well they're like a final four team so Michigan has had trouble defending the paint. So I think you'll see Marilyn go after that Michigan does real good job defending three I think Maryland will will look to score as many two pointers as possible against Michigan in terms of pick I don't have a coin in front of me but I would flip it. I don't have a feel for this game at all. One other thing that you want to talk about here with regards to games coming up this weekend in the big ten penn state and northwestern here on Saturday afternoon northwestern only has two wins in conference. Play they're both over Nebraska? They want on the road. Eighty one to seventy six in overtime. They wanted home by five points as well. Those are the only two victories here. Four northwestern in big ten play so kind of a one shot deal for them once they get to Indianapolis and they'll probably be one and done when they get there. But you want to talk about here specifically as it is senior day four northwestern here you want to talk about that last home game and and sort of something that you found with that yeah It's pretty interesting stuff to be. Honest WE I. I want to back up to a game with Penn state against Michigan State And I'm sure everyone watch. That knows what the result was up but there was a trend in that game. Where if you're playing the third consecutive opponent that's ranked Which Michigan state was their own seven. So I'm white. I obviously put out. A pecan Penn state and I'm watching it up. Nineteen forty two twenty one man my looking smart and all of a sudden it just went a down the toilet and that is the second time now. The Penn State is blown twenty point halftime or second quarter lead They did it against rutgers but how hung on for one point win also So now I have some question marks about Penn state going into into northwestern here but they are playing north western and northwestern is in her last one game regular season there to eight over the last ten seasons in their last home game. So I think that You like that kind of reflects. Kids are obviously playing hearts out in their last home game especially the seniors But when you know. Psychologically you're not nearly as good as Penn state or any of the other contenders in the conference and you're one of the cellar dwellers in the best conference on the on the in country it. I think it's hard to maintain forty minutes of outstanding. Play to get an upset. Win and Penn State is still playing for a lot of the seating does matter There's so many teams that are on top of each other in that conference to the double bias huge Disappoint up Penn State's eleven eight. So they would go to twelve eight. Illinois two games remaining ahead of them a twelve and six they obviously play higher state tonight and then You Michigan State. Wisconsin are currently tied with Maryland for the number one spot. So even if you get the single by it's still beneficial to get that extra day or two of rest notes that you sent over to me here. You had one other betting system that you wanted to touch on here. I don't know if it was if this was big ten specific or not. But I know that you're very big transit. Very big into running the different kinds of queries What else have you fall? It's pretty interesting here for us to meet pool that up here You said it was the B nineteen betting system. Actually that was a misspelling. It was supposed to be a zero Speed typing but It has to do with Teams that are playing the last home game over the last two weeks of the season and I was bringing down to the to the last part of the season with the last game of the season And unfortunately I had it pulled up Adam and I can't find it right now. Well we'll get back to it here if you find it over the course of the rest of the segment because I do WanNa make sure we spend a few minutes here on the NBA side of things obviously conference tournaments all the rage right now in college basketball but the NBA. Still just kinda plugging along as it usually is and there are a few by teams. You're kind of looking at here in the association right now yet. I'm continuing my bullishness on Indiana. We mentioned that last week and they went to and one in the article that I write for Bang Book and you on Thursdays. I mentioned that the game last night was going to be a real test and anymore Milwaukee is again a team you just don't fade. I I just you just don't WanNa lose money going against them They're a team. Like we talked about a previous in this in this chat with Tesla. You know stop just keeps going higher. And everybody's amazed at you know this thing ever going to correct. Never GonNA stop. And that's how Milwaukee is and if I look at the metrics I follow with games that they played after the All star break. They're better than they were at any other point in the season so I know it sounds ludicrous to say that you know they could win straight out. It's not out of the realm of possibility. Because there's really even the Lakers and the clippers right now are not in the same league It again. There's this there's distant team the highly recommend that you if you're going to bet on one of their games bet on them For the Pacers. They're they're looking like a team that can make a run up the standings and get a decent seed Last week I think I had a small thought in my head that maybe they were the team that could knock off Milwaukee but you know unless they suffer a serious injury to Jaanus or or some other key player. The chances of Milwaukee not winning the East is is pretty remote. There are a couple of other teams here looking at here out in the Western Conference and one is you know relatively unappetizing. They've been one of the worst teams in the NBA throughout the season and the other has some additional upside. Thanks to a player that came back a couple of months ago. Let's start with the Golden State Warriors. What is it that you kind of looking at with them? They've been playing better to this point And now you have steph curry coming back. I believe tonight so his contribution will be I don't think you're going to see him. Play more than thirty minutes in any game the rest of the season but just his presence on the court is going to make those younger guys that have been playing in this The season that much better. I don't think that's GonNa be reflected in In the lines Let's see Golden STATE They're scoring has been up to. They're averaging one hundred six for the season in over the last three Averaging one hundred and fourteen a relaxed ten it's back their season average of one hundred six so if they continue to score points above one hundred ten a game over the next several games that ten day moving average is they call. It will go above the season average. And then that's when you have all three of them trending up and that would be a Bush case for the warriors and then the other team. I really sticks out right now as Pelicans. And obviously this is due to the return of Zion They're averaging one hundred sixteen on the season without really having him for stealing them for this past month Over the last ten the ravaging six points more than their season average of which is a hundred twenty two and the last three. They're averaging one hundred twenty four so whether they can win enough games to Get up into the playoffs of his left to be remains to be seen. But that's another team that I I would bet on aggressively I would not stand in front of the freight train and try to fade them even if they're on the road it's just dangerous way to lose money one more thing on the NBA side here. We know we get a lot of three and four is four and six good situational betting opportunities in the NBA throughout the season. But especially now here late in the year because we're going to have some teams that won't have legs some teams that will some teams that are tagging as we know so on and so forth but the last thing to mention here as far as the NBA. Goes you met you mentioned here? You got a betting system. It's pretty interesting here with the third game in four nights angle. It's try to say this slowly in case people writing it down But it goes like this. It's playing three games in the last four days and you're playing in opponent. I'm sorry the opponent is coming off. Three Games in is playing the third game and the fourth day. Now I must be getting old Adam. I can't even talk I so the opponent is coming off a a win of double digits. Ten or more points On the road and they're playing a home dog so the opponent is favored so again. It's the opponent is favourite on. The road is playing their third game in four nights in his coming off a big double digit road. Win Since Twenty fifteen. It's gone fifty. One in twenty four with three porsches for sixty eight percent And thirty eight and forty straight up so that brings in the money line feature of a two and briefly what I'd like to do with these dogs situations if they're More than four and a half five points a combination wager using like eighty percent of your normal bet on the line getting the points and then take the twenty percent and put it on the money line and over the course of the season Doing plays like that is going to add a significant amount to your overall profit for the season in your game by game at doesn't matter what matters is the whole season and doing it consistently every single time that's that's what will make the added Prophets By the end of the season well. I gotTA say John. I don't think it's a case of getting old. I think it's a case of it's been a long six seven months stretching doing all kinds of stuff with football and basketball. There's only so much you can take you know mentally in terms of the research and the study and the grind. I assure you you are not alone here in in just having a lot of stuff running through your mind right now several something that I'm dealing with it. I'm sure a lot of our other guests bang book. Radio are dealing with but John Ryan you can find his work over at banged. The book dotcom taking a look every week at the Big East at the big ten and some NBA. Buy and sell for us.

Of course everybody's under pressure these days we started deserve it what i wanted to kind of. Take it from there. Ernie and i call. I guess everybody calls the year from hell. Economically speaking and omaha has been again relatively speaking in pretty good shape. How has the city and the metro and the area weather the storm. And what are you seeing your most reason numbers. Well it's it's fair pretty well overall when you look at it overall when you dig down. Deeper of course leisure and hospitality. That'd be restaurants bars and other amusements entertainment. Hit taking a real hit. Probably down as much as twenty five percent when you look at the overall economy. We're back we're back up the negative getting less negative according to our surveys and we're we're about three percent three to four percent below pre corona virus levels. And you've done a christmas shopping forecast. What does that. What what do you think is likely to be the economic bang for omaha for their again. We have Two different stories. The online folks. Though those retailers with online presence huge online presence going to grow as much as twenty five to thirty five percent from last year some real good growth but then the those depend on in store shopping probably downwind three to four or five percent so when you put it all together retail sales in nebraska omaha probably going to grow about Two to three percent and that's better than a national number which is about one and a half to two percent so it's certainly not good. We should expect four to five. Five five percent would be a normal Christmas holiday buying season. It's going to be well below. That and i guess we attribute that to people. They're just watching the dollars more carefully. So many people are either out of work or laid off or furloughed or whatever right. Oh absolutely you've also got an increase in savings rate and others. We had the stimulus program and the federal government that say that push our savings rate from about two to three percent up to about twenty five to twenty eight percent so a lot of individuals have been saving a lot of preparing for a longer economic downturn so does for our. We've had some sort of v-shaped recovery but there is a possibility. I mean we get willing to lockdowns. We could see a w and other words sharp downturn upturn in back down. i'm not encouraged about what i'm hearing from our leaders there either. One guy on biden's corona virus group that. He's put together as advocating a four to six week lockdown I don't know how much power he has. Much biden's ear. He has but But i think his ideas okay. We can put the brakes on this spread. And by the end of that lockdown. We'll have A vaccine available to Significant number of people not. everybody. But i think that's his view And meanwhile we don't have anything happening in the congress like we had at the beginning of this thing you know that the prop up businesses that are suddenly forced to shut down so that could be out absolutely and it's going to depend on but it happened in the state. I grew up in georgia. We're talking about will we get the two republicans will they be elected or will be to democrats are half-and-half that we just don't know right. Now it's too democrats we're gonna have a big stimulus brigham but we're also probably going to have an economic locked down and i i'm on the side of nazi. I don't see that. Economic lockdown lockdown simply delays the inevitable. And i'm not sure we'd have a virus in a vaccine in time to quell any real significant economic losses not to mention the human toll That abbas link public health people would be as concerned about ernie. Thank you always great to have you on appreciate it. Good to be with all of you. See your official. Economists babies more newsworthy. We haven't had an international manifest. Now it's it's overdue. It's something that i've longed for. Yes i know. The one thing about ernie is he tells it like it is it lacks the perfunctory tone of many like him Without going overly exuberant during glad times. You ever wonder how. Paul krugman miserable human continues to be employed and tom friedman by anybody mute miserable people wrong every spectacularly wrong krugman Some prize in economics or think nobel prize. I believe Or maybe a pulitzer prize. I don't know. I don't think it's a nobel prize. This is a columnist for the new york. Times is just a terminally miserable human and the things that he says publicly would lead you to think that he has no friends. I mean this is like this. Is charlie brown's but these people and by the way we had yesterday a series of liberals are very good liberals declaring on social media that they will be perpetrating. Voter fraud I don't think they know this. Andrew yang is one of them. They know this but when you advocate for people to move into a state for the express purpose of simply voting there that constitutes voter fraud and that is a felony and participation as such exposes you to felony charge you that bhai deaf saying. Are you know this that is illegal. You cannot do that. That is perpetrating voter fraud. He said on twitter. And i might have said it publicly to Me and my wife are moving to georgia just to vote in the senate election. That is illegal. I'm sure that the tweet has been taken down. Because mr yang has a battery of lawyers like all these rich silicon valley tech types. Do well if you don't say out loud. Oh well this is the thing you don't want to be in and out loud But you gotta be down there. If you're going to move to georgia just to vote in this election you need to know that you've got until december fifth To get there.

Merry Christmas, everybody! We talk Indiana, preview a great holiday slate and touch on our favorite Christmas go-tos (College Basketball 12/24)

"Hey there it's scary. Pairs thursday december twenty four two thousand twenty mary christmas eve and welcome back to the cbs sports. I on college basketball. Podcast where we sometimes discuss campbell fighting leaky black matt. Norlander is here with me and we spent parts of the last two episodes on historically strong programs immediately after rough losses. Let's do it again. An interesting final score from wednesday night northwestern seventy four indiana sixty seven inside assembly hall so the hoosiers are now five and three win over stanford providence butler losses to texas florida state northwestern this year. Four of archie. Miller at you. He went nine and nine in the big ten in your one. Eight and twelve year to nine and eleven last season. He's now owen. One this season with a loss to northwestern team that was picked to finish last in the big ten so archie miller all time record in the big ten to date is twenty six and thirty three norlander this india and a fan base. That was glad tom cream was fired. One year after winning his outright big ten title they don't do lose and very well in that state. How do you think everybody is phil and right now in bloomington. It's a bit of a grumpy christmas eve here. There's no doubt about it and they've got. It's not a christmas day game. We'll get to the big ten christmas day games in a little bit. But they do have a day after christmas game at illinois on wednesday night Close to run eleven eastern. I hopped on the tweet machine and for the court report. I always have a little a section called at me. Yes i want you to at me and it's basically a reader mailbag so asked for some questions. I did not address. Archie miller's job status but i had four or five in the. Nfl basically asked me that very question. Why can't you turn this around. Win is going to be fired. What's going into the anna. Why can't this Why can't this be better. I think in the nfl. With five and two record with losses on a neutral in maui. I say in maui against texas and then at florida state in overtime but the home loss to northwestern. I think the league is going to be tough in indiana fans have been. I think they've been pretty patient. Now there there. You're right though they don't they. Don't suffer losing. You might even say it's a they have a bit of an outsized ego you know. I was surprised in the offseason. When i did my rankings of the best programs in college basketball history like historically now according i took i took a look at a whole bunch of different statistics and stuff and louisville is a better all time program at this point in indiana and we think of the blue bloods as we do. We think of the blue bloods a six of them. Kansas kentucky carolina duke. Macron's ucla team indiana's the six but louisville has elevated itself ahead of indiana now. Indiana is really right there. And then i think you can kind of draw a line and say that there are seven of them but it stature has certainly dropped like if we were to go back. Twenty five years. Indiana would be in that. Top four probably. It's not that anymore. It's it's really number seven right now. And they demand a lot. They command a lot of their head. Coaches and archie miller did a tremendous job at dayton and they probably would have made the tournament last season but they didn't have a tournament last season so he's still technically is not made an ncaa tournament. They were bubble team so it was a tough call who knows now at five and three going against illinois on the road know credit northwestern to know for the first time in ten fifteen seasons. And if anything like. I don't know maybe michigan state lost northwestern doesn't look as bad because wanted indiana and maybe indiana's home loss to northwestern doesn't look bad because it meet michigan state. One of those kind of deals perish but they should be better than i think. Five and three this will be cancelled out if they can win at illinois but that is a tall task the bright spot so far this point even though he was outplayed a bit on on on wednesday night. Trish jackson davis has been has been wonderful but Northwestern was was really really good on wednesday in between miller cop. Pete nance chase they they. They did a number on them. And they took advantage of the fact. That indiana fans in the stands. So you actually have fans of the program that is just below louisville historically according to you That are wondering. Is this it for archie miller. That surprises me. Because despite what i said at the top i was just framing the conversation. I don't think indiana should be looking to make a coaching change. Although i am surprised that this isn't going better. yeah. I'm surprised it's not going better. But yes indiana fans are now at that point. They wanted the team to be better last season than two thousand twelve record. When the season was halted they thought their team should have been much comfortably in the tournament and win. You know tom green leaves you. Bring an archie. He was as good as he was dayton tom. Cream by the way the year before he left they were five c. They made the sweet sixteen tournament the year before that. They didn't have as much overall success as they wanted under. Tom crean but he did make four incidentally tournaments and took a program that was fairly decimated for rules infractions. That don't even exist anymore when kelvin sampson was there the point is they thought that archie miller would be able to step in all right first year might be a little bumpy second year. Twenty wins in the tournament. That didn't happen. Nineteen wednesday didn't make the tournament third year which got cancelled. They won twenty games and then we didn't have a tournament too so i think they're just itchy. I would not. I'm not archie militant hotseat. He's not losing his job. Season that simply fantasy land stuff. It's not going to happen. I would argue that. He probably wouldn't even be on hot heading into next season if indiana Finishes in the top eight of the ten but yes. There is some consternation amongst the fan base. I can understand that promise. It's not going to get easier for indian offense because of the league year in so you're gonna get but you're going to take on a lot of losses here and what they reduce non conference schedule. I'll be intrigued to see where indiana lands when we're talking on march one because we both thought indiana was like a top thirty quality kind of team that can be the case. And you're still like the six best team in the big ten or the seventh best team in the big ten so it's going to be an interesting couple of months for hoosiers fans. Yeah when you contrast it with how well it went at dayton. That's another somewhat surprising thing now. Indiana jobs clearly better than the dayton job. That's why arches. Coaching indiana right. Now as opposed to dayton but dayton rock and roll and there's only so many schools programs in the in that can mess with you in the big ten. There's a long list of schools that can mess with you and that has been the case you know through. Certainly the first three years that has been there and your three at dayton. He went to the elite eight year. Four another ncaa tournament parents year. Five another ncaa. Tournament parents your six another tournament parents. And then that's when he bounced to indiana in year. Three at indiana nine and eleven in the big ten in year four just lost in northwestern. But you're exactly right. What happened. Sunday night to michigan. State was like. Oh my god. That's an embarrassment. What if both western have just like kind of good. They might. They might certainly are better than what anybody anticipated heading into the preseason so it is possible i guess my point is that this loss will look as bad as it seems right now six weeks from now but what it is right now is that drives you to own one of the big ten in. It's a loss against the team that was picked to finish last in the big ten. And it's a loss at home to that team. What's interesting is that. Let's just play pretend for a second. Maybe this ends up being a not. Great year at indiana. You look at the roster. There's only one senior on. It could bring back everybody except algebra now everybody in the could bring everybody given the way. The instantly is not counting this year as as a eligibility year. But you get my point. There's no obvious first. Round pick on the indiana roster like nobody has to leave because they're projected to go in the top ten and you just can't pass that up so it could be that the first four seasons of archie miller aren't great. And then you bring back this whole team for most of this team and then you breakthrough in year five. We'll see but it is wild. I can remember. Right after arch was hired on indiana podcasts and rarely stopped by a question. Like it's my job to answer questions publicly so you know exactly what you're going to say or you fake it but like ereli stop and i remember being on this. Podcast and i was asked like if archie isn't success. What indiana what would be the reason. And i was genuinely stopped and i actually said some version of what. I've never even thought about that. Because i can't imagine him. Not working at indiana so to go from that to this conversation again. Surprising doesn't mean. I gonna put him on any hot seat list. It doesn't mean. If i were running. Indiana i would make a coaching change. It doesn't mean that. I don't think this season can go well and that next season can't be amazing for all the reasons already stated it's just in the simplest of terms. I'm a little surprised that it has gone more smoothly. Because i expected this to go really really well and it still might but it's not going really really well. I think even archie would would tell you that so on wednesday night with a handful of interesting games. ohio state beat rutgers creighton. Handled xavier gave the musketeers.

Its first loss of the season illinois. Nearly scored one hundred and a win. At penn state villanova may thirteen threes at marquette. Dead leg. I know you were in front of a television. A what of those games. What stood out to you. I was bouncing all around. I was. I was working on the court report and watching all of this Nova pulled away from marquette. You know i. I believe now marquette. I'm pretty sure marquette's owen three. In fact i know there are since We got on this podcast and i declared that marquette was going to the tournament is preceded lose. Three straight games is now five and five and has a road game against your town next. After we flip the calendar villanova to me has pulled away as the best team in the big east Creighton is certainly. You know it's it's still within shouting distance. But i think it's villanova and then there's a drop off their The game that. I was most compelled by aside from northwestern indiana was was the most compelling game illinois got a good push initially from penn state. But then i thought that was an important win for illinois to get it on the road not avoid back to back losses. Get six and three. It's got the game as we previous mentioned against indiana on saturday there. I thought that was probably the most important outcome from wednesday but to me creighton getting the win against xavier sixty six sixty one xavier texas first loss of the season. That was i don't know maybe my biggest takeaway the night. Non indiana related there because xavier. Could've they could've one but it was it was they were in a tough spot on the road. Creighton gets the kind of win that to me still keeps like the big east. I think it is going to be villanova. Go down a shelf creighton. Go down a shelf. And then all of the items and goods that are providence hands xavier and seton hall and butler and uconn and marquette. Maybe even paul shouts to the paul. It finally played its first game of the season on wednesday and it was able to get a win by the way who the who bob trivia time who did have no idea. They beat beat the leather necks. They beat the through. David exe depaul play. The weather wasn't even on my rare. I don't get caught up in all the inside like super cool college basketball depaul stuff like i don't get involved in that. I don't find it that interesting. Everybody loves to tweet about the paul anka. Paul one or depaul. Laws i just. I don't find it that interesting. So i i didn't intentionally not know who played but i don't i don't follow it with the same sort of giddiness that some do depal. Yeah but you should follow the leather necks with getting a good point. That's a good point. You didn't follow the leather necks with giddiness. Okay we problems. That's a grievance right there day after festivus right now. My favorite set by the way is to paul shot ten of twenty from three point range against the leather necks as one one will do against the leather necks. So right now to paul is the number one. Three point shooting team in america. Never mind this played one game because it's hitting fifty percents of his three-point shots and it's number one in effective field goal percentage anyway The point i was making before the leather necks got me off the trail and the rail was the big is just going to have teams three through probably nine That might be just almost interchangeable. And how that's gonna look when it comes to trying to get teams in the tournament. I'll be interested to see by the time it gets valentine's day so Decent wednesday there are no games. We talked here on thursday but the the creighton xavier game was the one that i was probably most clued into. Yeah creighton greg. Mcdermott made this point after the game like that's two in a row that they've won in ways that they didn't use to win like creighton if they were going to beat you under normal circumstances they're gonna outscore you. They're gonna they're gonna they're gonna they're going to be brilliant offensively and just outscore. Ya and here's one where they wanna game in the sixties against a ranked. Team you automatically. We'll see how good xabier is going forward. But that's a team that did enter undefeated with some pretty good winds on. Its resume and i know you. I mean this point on inside college basketball on wednesday night like once. You're eight and oh in your travis steel. You be nine. Oh in your disappointed. If you ni- but i promise you if you told travis or anybody connected to that program you'll be eight and one with a five point loss at creighton being the lone laws heading into christmas. You take that every time. So i left xavier right in the top twenty five in one where i had them. I'm not going to punish them for losing a road game by five points to a higher ranked team illinois. You mentioned it. They were down big early and then just took off up scoring ninety eight points at penn state in what ended up being a pretty easy victory. They gotta share some things up on the defensive end at brad underwood certain would agree but they can score man. They're going like that. The illinois team total in that game was seventy-seven and they end up going way over it so I assume who had thirty. That's a really gifted offensive basketball team. And i thought villanova was terrific as well. You'll marquette shut fifty one percent from the fill fifty percent from three instill largest by seventeen points to a villanova team that went thirteen of thirty three from three point range. It's not quite as impressive. What keynes's had done from the argus west. Virginia the night before but still a pretty nice offensive performance and again like i said last night on inside college basketball. I don't know if this'll be the season when jay wright gets his third national championship but it seems pretty obvious already that he's got a teen good enough to put them in a position to maybe get us national championship in one more from from wednesday night. Ohio state beat rutgers. Eighty two sixty eight. I caught some of this. Gp not all of it chasing the kids around as one. We'll have to do their that. This game actually. You can speak more to this but it flipped. Rutgers had the lead steve pile. How about this. Do you see the steve. Paiko got a technical foul. I had this in wednesday's report to near the end of my notes section. It was the first time in five hundred. Eight career games of michael's head coaching career. That he ever received a technical which i thought was astounding. What were your thoughts and ohio state given rutgers its first loss of the season and in doing so by the way. Oh by the way improving the seven one year rutgers was up ten at the half and ohio state outscored them fifty two two thirty in the final twenty minutes so beating a legitimate top twenty to top two thousand eighteen by twenty two in the second half is impressive scoring fifty two against a legitimate top twenty team in the second half is impressive. Yeah when i and i like i was bouncing around. We had a tripleheader on. Cbs sports network ended up being a doubleheader on cbs sports networks. We had to fill. The time with inside cog basketball. I was bouncing from my desk into studio on television so on and so forth but one night. Because i did not see when i heard st paiko technical i was like what miserable ref would. E pikal technical pikal. I don't know how we know him but he he's worked with this. Cbs sports network several times. Like the nicest man on the planet. Like i don't even i can't imagine what or technical foul more specifically. I can't imagine steve pikal doing the type of thing that you have to do or should have to do to get a technical vow. I agree with you completely on this by the way so fico is just. He's not one of the more well known head coaches in the sport and part of that just because he's stony brook at rutgers. He's making rutgers relevant for the first time in decades so for those that don't really know him. He is considered by coaches. He's of that. Fran dunphy vintage where coaches in the profession just regard him as one of the most generous kindhearted gentle souls in college basketball. So you're so the idea that michael would get his first t you know decades into his career and it would happen while he's masked up an all this stuff i thought was Was certainly interesting and yes. I don't know the official that dole that out by the way but But yeah a bit of grant. I got to say real quick on ohio state so they get that win. Improved to seven and one six. No with ej ladele in the lineup. He was away from the team with a ohio state described as nine vid illness for a couple of games and that played a role in them. Losing sixty seven sixty at purdue bounce back from that ladele back in the lineup. They beat ucla in the greatest coach and ucla. History cronin than a back that up with a win over rutgers. My point being this ohio state been sorta quietness see in terms of. I don't know how much time we've spent talking about them here on the island. College basketball podcast. But they are seven. One with victories over notre dame. Ucla rutgers six with ladele in the lineup. Got chris. Holdman is coached in the past five. Ncwa tournaments to different schools seems pretty clear. He's going to be coaching in a six straight. Ncaa tournament come march all right. We've got games to get to gp but before we do the final foreign one two questions for you. First of all we are recording this on thursday. There is a huge christmas day game so my first question is this because if this is not in your list making you do it. It's not a friday. It's not a friday podcast for friday game. You got wisconsin michigan state in your four. Of course i do i. I been my roles. My general is. I don't pick friday gains put if we're recording on thursday and listeners have a full twenty four hours before tipoff. I feel like that. What i'm always trying to avoid is somebody gets to this day of in. It already feels old to here so on friday. I'd rather not spend time doing. Friday gains because somebody might not be listening to it in the game. Gardy happened so but this is a thursday pocket. Because tomorrow's christmas. As much. As i love you. I don't think they record a podcast on christmas. We're coordin- on thursday. I'm happy to pick friday games. In fact i've got. I believe to friday. You ready to go okay before we do this. Here's my question. You're just a general quick discussion topic. Okay about the friday games so the only games that are happening on christmas which by the way is not new. We just normally never really pay attention. Because the The tournament out in hawaii is normally the christmas day games and they just get buried but college basketball. Christmas is not a new thing. It's just different this year because the big ten specifically scheduled for christmas i actually called around and people connected to at least four teams. That are play on christmas. said that the players were extremely anxious and eager and wanting to play on christmas. Because let me. Why would you think they'd be planned christmas. Gp when when i tell you that what's the first thing that would come to mind as to why they'd wanna play on christmas. I don't think this is the right answer but it is. The first thing that came to mind college players want to do everything. Mba players do in english to seems to be like a an accomplishment. Like yeah we got picked to play on christmas so playing on christmas means a big thing is like a big thing in the nba. So i could see college players translating into. It's a big thing for us. Is that right. You are one hundred percent correct so all of these eighteen nineteen twenty twenty one year olds. They've obviously grown up with abc broadcasting. Christmas day game starting at noon and going into the night and it's the best teams. If you're planning on christmas it means you're a really good player on a really good team. That's relevant except of course the next which fu for decades had the frigging twelve o'clock came for no good reason the problem. Of course i'm not here to ruin anybody's dreams. But i'll this means is that people will be watching the james while you're playing on christmas correct but this but this is how they are approaching it so good for them. They want to be doing this. And and the league went to the players and they said oh if you if if we're going to be around anyway and we can plan christmas. That's a pretty cool awesome thing. I grew up watching basketball. Dreaming gets on christmas day. Now they get to do it with their college teams. So that's kind of a cool thing but my question for you before we get to pick in the games. Is this so wisconsin michigan state's at twelve thirty on christmas. That is a wonderful wonderful game. I i don't know if i'm gonna be like into it at that. Our kids doing the presence. Like this is not part of my my. I don't have muscle memory for this. Isn't that in my body clock to have like some some must watch college. Hoops games that early in the day on christmas. There are you with me in that. This is gonna feel like just a little bit weird. Like i'll turn it on eventually and get into it but i'm just not accustomed to it being christmas day and i wonder if our listeners kind of feel the same especially ones that are not rooting for big ten teams. Because there's only four games tomorrow. They're all big ten. Intra league games. Are you kind of with me in that. This is this might be a little bit. You know it just seems out of place might be a little hard to To get into on on december twenty five well it definitely seems out of place and i do think again if the players are excited. I'm excited for him. But it does not serve the same purpose like if you're playing on christmas in the nba. Like you're the only thing on so people are watching you. You know wisconsin michigan state's not going to be the only thing on their gummy nba game going directly opposite it and then you know throughout the day you've got the nfl. Papa was saints vikings. So you're not going to be on some bigger than normal stage by playing a big tin game opposite the nba in the nfl So it does feel out of place. I i'll turn it on you really. He's gonna still be having kids opening presence. At twelve thirty my kids will be up at five. Am like they will have everything and completely destroyed by seven fifteen at the law. That's you're you're right about that. The presence are going to yeah. My phrasing was incorrect on that the presence are gonna have been if i can make it to see the. I've got a two year old. He still doesn't know what's going on fully here because he just turned to so he'll get up and do what he's just going to get up like normal my five year old. Of course he knows the deal. If i can make it to seven fifteen. That's going to be a win. I i think my wife will allow me to make it to seven fifteen. I know that much. She is just absolutely an amazing human being so But yeah the presents are going to be. It's going to be a rap by nine by eight thirty. who am i kidding But then they want to play with the toys you know i might have to build something and you're just you're just in that mode like you want be just sitting around playing some christmas music. You know relaxing dabba. Yes the the presence will be long because in a normal year we would have probably my parents come over. But that's not gonna happen this year with covid and so yeah we'll just We'll make the most of it. Yeah like in a normal year. We would go to my mother-in-law's tonight and then we would go to my father's tomorrow and then my mother's afternoon and so now we're not doing any of that and so we'll just be. What else am i going to do. Besides michigan state wisconsin. Watch watch the probably. But i'll have it on but i do not think it serves the same purpose for the big ten that it serves for the nba like one of the reasons nba wanted to start on december. Twenty second is because it was financially impactful to have the christmas day. What five games in a row. What does that call. Doubleheader tripleheader quadruplet quintuplet quintupled header quintupled. Header the nba. Christmas day quintupled header or is a very valuable thing. I don't know that it resonates quite the same way in college basketball if only because the nba already owns that day. The last piece of context before we finally get to Picking games here. This was done by the victim. The victim was in the only league that looked at this by the way. But the only that committed to it. There are a couple of other Multi leagues that looked into. Maybe getting games on on christmas day. The big originally did this because when it was building at schedule there was curiosity if the nba was going to come back in time for this but a lot of people think about the nba wouldn't come back until january but then once the once the nba kind of laid out to its players union the nba collectively stand to lose. If we don't start until january and we don't get in december with our inventory They came to an agreement and so the season has obviously started As of december twenty seconds so for a short window. They're the big ten actually was doing this Also because it thought it could be. The only basketball played on christmas day. That's not the case. It will obviously be massively dwarfed by the nba as it should but this is a college hoops. Podcast and these are good college hoops games. Let's get rolling with the final four one. Gp what do you wanna start with earth. I'd like to know are updated records. Well i i. I updated it on the sunday podcast. But if you need me to remind everyone we are both six three. Pick five games each week but we lost the texas baylor game so we are going to have probably in just an uneven not divisible by five number at the end of this. So we've each picked nine games have been played and we are each six and three through two weeks. How's it possible. I can have a winning record on a podcast in a losing record in real life. Is that an existential question or like. I don't know what you're referring to there. So i just sit around sometimes with my friends who gamble on sports and we've just wonder like how are we always wrong like like. Do you want to take the points or lay the points. Do you want to go over under to how you how you always wrong. It doesn't make any sense that is that is gambling which is my reminder. This is for purely just entertainment purposes banks being wrong or six and three right now each of us and Those good times probably will not continue to roll. You know. I do these ads on radio for some of the online gambling sites because is now legal in the state of tennessee and at the end. It's all what you gotta do the disclaimers. It must be twenty one and in in in in in you know in physically in the state of tennessee and then the last thing is always and if you or someone you know has a gambling problem in what sell please call one eight hundred blah blah blah. And i'm like i. yes i know. People have from the people who gave them problems. They don't want help. they live line they want. They want they want. They want to have time line. They don't want they don't want help they'd want. They will one more game so do what these whatever you want doesn't matter to me. Final four in one game one friday. Twelve thirty eastern number. Nine wisconsin at number twelve michigan state inside. The drew nights will center. You can watch it on fox. Wisconsin is minus one and a half. Wisconsin is damn good michigan state. Coming off a rough loss. Michigan state is twenty seven to canton right now. Wisconsin is fourth. The third best defense per ken to this point. Are these badgers. I'm gonna take michigan state. I still think that michigan state's going to be a top four team in the big ten. I'm not gonna take too much off that loss at north western if anything maybe is a really just just gets his guys In line there in time for this game yeah. Wisconsin wisconsin being favored according to ken on the road in a spot. I don't see how. I can't take michigan state. Although it is a weird like christmas day game maybe that adds a certain element of uncertainty there but be sparty. Michigan state let northwestern fifty three percent from the field on sunday which is obviously not a normal thing. It's why tom called it. One of his more inept performances as head coach. Which i believe is year twenty six right michigan six forty ninth and adjusted defensive efficiency trivia time. Boy when's the last time. The spartans finished outside the top forty in adjusted defensive efficiency Boy if half the trick question like never happened in the camera. But i'm gonna say it actually has an my blind guess is going to be two thousand. Three two thousand six is the correct answer. They finished outside of the top forty. The team went and eight in the big ten got a six seat in the incidentally tournament loss to you wrote fifteen thousand words george mason. Of course lost george mason in the first round of that tournament. Drew nights by the way was a sophomore on that team. S for this weekend or this week and christmas day joy houser is expected to play. He left the northwestern game with a knee injury. He is far as i'm told good to go. So we'll see how effective he is. But von wisconsin's on a four game winning streak now low losses. A can't box out on a free throw buzzer loss against marquette like you said third and defensive efficiency twelve and offense officially. I'll take the badgers on the road. I got real questions about this michigan state team right now. Yeah all right. I like a little disagreement here. All right what's I'm guessing game to another big ten game christmas day game to friday. Eight o'clock eastern number four iowa at minnesota inside kris humphries arena. Iowa is five minus five. And a half. You can watch it on the big ten network. Yeah i'm gonna take our here. It's hard for me not to frankly. I'm i'm still with you in that. They're being a top four right now. Gonzaga than baylor then to mccann's than iowa than maybe got a little bit of separation so after i will one fifteen relatively easily on tuesday against purdue minnesota has gotten just tremendous play at marcus card. At this point he has been everything they hoped he would be more. Obviously this is a booth gosh game. We can't overlook that certainly A huge factor. In fact you know maybe the line. Maybe it's an insult. Maybe it's disrespectful to gosh. I don't know but i can't take minnesota in good consciousness. Seven one only loss they got drilled at illinois last week. There hasn't really been a big challenge. Aside from saint louis this past sunday and it was a good win. Saint louis as a good team. But i'm gonna take iowa to win. And i think i'm going to take out a win with some with some comfort here so close to double digits for me almost name the arena balk arena. He's still active there so it might be like a hall of fame situation so i think you made the right call there now. Kris humphry is is is a good call there. There's an alternate universe. Where i say friday eight eastern number four iowa at minnesota inside balk arena. But i went with kris humphries. Because he is. You might not know this. Kris humphries is the only exco for to ever marry a kurdish. I was aware of that. Actually an minnesota like they handled are looking pretty easily on sunday night. So that was rough to see marcus car leading assist man in the big ten second leading score behind only luca garza garza twenty eight point. Four points nine point one rebounds sixty eight percent from the field fifty nine percent from three right now. I like you will take iowa on the road. I think but just outscore game three saturday. Two o'clock eastern number six houston ucf inside. Taco fall arena houston minus seven. According to kim palm you can watch it on a. b. c. how 'bout that houston. Ucf on abc. I know that's a. That's a prime spot. This is the for saturday's. They're not a lot of games on saturday. But there's plenty of good games. We only have thirteen d one game scheduled for saturday. Hopefully we can keep all those. Abc's a little sweet spot there. That game shifted over there. This is too big of a number for me. Gp i'm going to take ucf. It has only played four games so far but it's played top. One hundred competition across the board vectis played top. Seventy five competition wins over auburn at florida state and then on tuesday beat cincinnati. The only loss. It wasn't close. Came by twenty two at michigan but seven's a bit too much if this was five four and a half five. I would probably take kelvin. Sampson's team. But i will ride with johnny dawkins in the nights here. Ucf has been better than most expected picked. Eight in the preseason poll. Now they're sitting here. Got wins over. Florida state auburn cincinnati. That loan loss was michigan loss. Like you pointed out. Johnny dawkins seem seems to be better than it was projected to be. Lay the points with houston. I guess caleb is expected to play. You know he's preseason. Ac player of the year. It's only played twice this season. Because of an ankle. Injury kelly samson did say that he could have played tuesday night against temple. They just gave it some more time but he is expected to play at. Ucf and keep an eye on quinton. Grimes it he might have been off the radar for some people over the past couple of since he left kansas us. At mcdonald's all america went to kansas supposed to be one and done. That didn't go so well so he ends up transferring to houston and it's a nice player last season an important part of a very good team but he's really taking it to another level this season. Perhaps in the absence of kayla male everton twenty. Two birdies averaged twenty point. Seven point seven rebounds shooting eighty seven percent for the free throw line thirty six percent from three point range. I'll say this. I had to submit a ballot on wednesday to the wooden award. Twenty five names of players who should be under consideration for the wooden award and one of the twenty five names. It was quitting rhymes. Yeah i think that's probably fair at this point and houston might be a couple more wins away from really it's it's getting respect in the polls but but if you're houston if you're in that conference and you haven't played high profile opponents a lot they've obviously facing postponements. You just need a couple more wins before you really sort of make good noise but as always we do give some respect to the cougs win deserve their. I'm i'm intrigued to see what you're going to be here. Because but well before i give you my fist game just so everyone knows sundays. Sundays kind of dull. So if you're into the nfl playoff chase and all that stuff is. i'll be locked in on my bears. There's not a lot on sunday. So i know. Gp's fourth game is going to be one of the saturday tips but there's really three viable to pick from so. Which of the three are you going to give me right now. I appreciate you making it. Clear that you respect the cougs. I'm confident that the cougs listening right now or are appreciative as well game. Four saturday four pm eastern number one gonzaga versus number sixteen virginia inside dicky's arena. Think he's arenas just dicky's reeker. I agree we agree. It can be nothing else. You don't mess with perfection right. You don't mess with perfection. Dicky's marina dicky's arena. Kim palms gotta gonzaga minus five. You can watch it on. Cbs america's most watched networks the network. A star it is and this is a wonderful four o'clock game on cbs. Here please let us have it Because as we mentioned a couple of podcast go. This is a direct contrast from From playing iowa. Virginia's doesn't operate at all like iowa. And i will be interested to see how virginia handles this game. It's played i saw it I saw you know it. Come out and beat thousand bubble ville and then lose against san francisco and since then it's beaten saint francis pennsylvania kent state in overtime and then william and mary so it has not played. Hasn't played a top fifty team yet this season gonzaga's much more seasoned with this. I am gonna take in zag here. I just i. It would not surprise me if virginia keeps a close. Because it's tony bennett. I'll also say it won't surprise me. If virginia wins this game but it would be surprising if it would if that makes any sense. It probably doesn't maybe a mix no okay grandma grievance fair enough By the way tons tons of love and respect for our grammar grievances. That's going to be an occasional segment. So put that down the road there Tony bennett capable of beating. Few head to head matchup scheming preparing for this. I just don't see it happening here. I'm going gonna take a win. It's it's giving five and if you honestly in this spot even the way. Uva plays gp. If you even gave me seven or eight. I think i would still take zag. I need to see a team. Truly threaten it the way. That west virginia was getting close there. So give me the zags and gimme them. Big west. virginia did threaten them but they sucks missed part of that game. Nobody else has been able to play with his ex at all and it's not like they've played. I mean they look how awesome. Kansas looks and they hit okay. There's no problem. Look how awesome iowa looks against everybody else and they handled iowa no problem. The only team that played with them was west virginia again. The one and done top five pick point guard national player of the year candidate miss of that game. So i'm gonna lay the points to like. I got tons of respect for for for tony bennett. And i do think virginia is good and probably still the favourite to win the acc. But i just outside of baylor. And maybe kansas if kansas in zagreb played again tomorrow i don't know who i'm picking a state within five points of gonzaga right now. Maybe baylor maybe kansas. Maybe villanova but list. The list is short. It's very it's very short so we are in agreement on that so we agree there and we agree that i was gonna cover against minnesota. We disagree on wisconsin michigan houston. Ucf okay. there are three other games on saturday that you should be aware of one of them's obviously going to be my pick. The two that are not ohio state at northwestern. That's a two o'clock tip. If northwestern can get a three no start there. We'll have to dedicate some time to the cats on sunday pod and then indiana illinois as previously mentioned about twenty minutes ago. Intriguing game If indiana can get a win there. I think Archie moore is going to alleviate some fan pain there. But we'll see. I gotta pick i gotta take the other one now. It's a one o'clock tip on espn. It is kentucky playing at louisville. Regrettably just because of all the christmas stuff. I'll have this four sunday. I don't have the chris. Are you a chicken soundbites. I love the i. Are you a chicken. I don't have that setup for this one. And i'm not gonna have time to do it in post christmas eve stuff to do here today but this is the. Are you a chicken game here. Luvell is favored by four points. Which is a bit fewer than i expected here. The cards to this point have been markedly better than kentucky. They're their records are flipped. Kentucky enters this game with a one five record louisville enters this game with a five one record. It's only loss it got just now. It was short handed to the extreme. I think mac had eight players available to him last saturday when they lost eighty five to forty at wisconsin. The best win for louisville is against seton hall back on november twenty seven and they just did win in nice fashion on tuesday at pitt did not have jeff capel. I'm going to. I don't have any reason not to take louisville here home court. The line is only four. Maybe it's a wildcard situation in terms of what kind of kentucky team we see. And i think that's certainly there a particularly with this rivalry intrigued to hear what you're going to say about this But i'm gonna. I'm gonna stick with the pick that i gave to a local reporter. I'm sure he hit you up to my prediction for this game. To him was seventy three. Sixty seven louisville. That means the cards cover. Here's what's while is that. As i was prepping last night. This game wasn't even on my radar. I totally forgot about it. Because i'm only picking four games. Typically scrolling top twenty five scoreboard and kentucky's twenty five and levels. Not in the top twenty. Five i didn't even consider kentucky louisville. Which is why. I bet you this. The actual line because the games several away two days away. We're basing the point spread off of the kim prediction. I bet you. The actual point spreads bigger than little minus four. I agree with the closer to louisville minus five and a half minute six. you know. Computer numbers got really twisted up in distorted because of that loss at wisconsin but as you pointed anal players. You shouldn't lose that badly to anybody except for maybe gonzaga but but you. That wasn't little that played at wisconsin. They are healthier now. And i would. I've seen nothing to see. It makes me think louisville doesn't handle this rather easily calbury are going to look back at what she would have. Just allowed chris mack. The delays gave until next season. I would assume chairs the edit out. I don't think john new team was going to struggle to this extent but he named captains. I saw that on twitter this morning. John kerry now establish some captains at kentucky. So that's that's fix that. Yeah we'll wait and see on all that And we'll see what says after that. Okay before we get outta here. Just quickly indulge me on a couple of quick things. Here christmas related. Let's get art. Let's get our listeners in the spirit we'd got plenty people. Listen on christmas eve. People dipping away on christmas. We appreciate you if you're picking up. All that christmas wrapping thrown in a huge black trash bag got got the earbuds and doing little podcasts. Hey we're happy that you're here a couple of things here first of all. What is your go-to i listen. You've had a long couple of days. And i know you're ready to just sit and enjoy an and vibe. I'm just curious about this. What's your go-to christmas tree. Vodka new amsterdam blue smooth. You can drink it straight points out on the web new amsterdam spirits dot com. Okay i i like a good like warm cider. Bourbon maybe a hot toddy thought you might venture but okay i keep it. Keep it consistent routine norlander you deal. I i noted this in my word doc. Before and i haven't parentheses probably just vodka. I know you too. Well i go. I go vodka water and then a little splash of you know. Those little eliminates zero calorie zero sugar eliminate scored in mix it up a little splash of that. And i always look wild at the grocery store. Go to kroger. And i go to the little stack up on everything like i. Don't buy things one at a time. So i must look like a liquor store and i buy a case of vodka by a bottle of vodka by case and so i didn't go to the grocery store and i buy like twenty of those little lemonade scored things just stock up. I don't need to come back anytime soon. and so. yeah. I got. I ice vodka yesterday. Bacchus you can straight on the way of new hampshire spirits dot com and then Water and then a little splash. Lemonade stirred up enjoy. Go to sleep at some point. Get it okay. Something we've never discussed before like for today and tomorrow. I'll have the vinyl spinning. you know. Vince giraldi trio some sinatra. Got a great like old school like four vinyl classic christmas songs that i inherited but we also rock we rock it on the on the bluetooth. I got a pretty a pretty robust like hundred song. Christmas mix there do you. D- do the christmas tunes in the in the in the parish are we. Are we rocking from a bluetooth speaker or or an alexa device. What what are we doing. And if so just inform the people like do you have three or four to christmas tunes. What's at the top of parishes list. This is going to be embarrassing. I don't listen to christmas music. I don't listen to christmas music. it's on. I don't i don't cover my years with my hands and say i'm not listening to this. It's on. I'm happy to do it but i ever going to be the person that's going to be like. Listen to elvis christmas album. I just i don't. I don't do it Favorite christmas song. yeah you must have one or two. Is the war's over your big your big lennon guy. So yeah. I loved john lennon. So that's i like. Maybe i'll just put that on a loop with forty times. Wouldn't recommend that I'll give a few people listening if you want to expand your Christmas holiday list. These are not like super obscure there. But they're good. They're good little curve balls to throw in here. Some of my personal favorites. First of all. Gus gus did a Fans of the. Oc will remember this because it was on an episode there but gusts did a parody of carol of the bells called carol of the meows and it's just members of gusta singing to the melody in just saying the word meow meow meow now now. It's very good. I enjoy run. The jewels did that too didn't they. They did something like that. But yes very very good julie andrews. It came upon a midnight clear. That is a all lights often. The house except for the christmas tree get going drink in hand looking at the presence. Julie andrews came upon a midnight clear best version. That's in my opinion Fiona apple who had one of the best albums of two thousand twenty. she rendition. A frosty the snowman. That's pretty Pretty simple little bit lo fi that i have long loved. There is a very popular christmas song. Them surprise isn't more popular called. Kiss me on christmas. By the canon logic go and search it out is it. It sounds like it should be in love actually for all. I know it is in love actually which i've never seen in full but it's got that kind of vibe to it and then my favorite christmas song of all time my favorite one is the instrumental version of have yourself. A merry little. Christmas by percy faith and his orchestra It's off the album. Christmas is percy faith. It is fantastic. Absolutely love it so a little bit of christmas tunes. If you're unfamiliar with any of those rewind this podcast write it down. Go find him. I think you will enjoy all of them. Okay last thing. My brother sent this text message to our family thread this morning. And i haven't given a ton of thought but it did make me think he goes top five days of the year question mark and it's five are one the first day of the ncaa tournament to christmas eve. Three christmas day for the first sunday of the nfl season and then five. He has a bunch of question marks and says maybe super bowl. Sunday my five off. The top of my head are the free. It's the first day of the tournament. The second day of the tournament is number two. I think the anxiety and eagerness of selection sundays actually my third favorite day of the year and then was much as. I love the nfl all of that for sunday. I do think in normal times. Thanks thanksgiving's probably five. And then christmas day is probably for those are my five best is the do you have any wildcards anything. Different big halloween guy. We all know you hate thanksgiving. Maybe like christmas eve more than you like christmas. Like new year's eve more than you like the second day of the tournament. Best five days of the year and i want to hear from listeners. Drop reviews in apple podcasts. But us know your five best days of the gop. What what are you got. Okay number one to the after the national college basketball. I love that it. Okay for you and me. That is a wonderful day. That's that's a that's a sneaky. Good pick that might be in my top ten the tuesday after you gotta get home from the airport after you've gotten home from the airport after the final four golden opening day baseball which is the sunday of the final four by the way so. That's a weird one. Yeah well it's always. The i think they started even supposed to start even earlier this past season but yeah how about. I'll be more specific game one of the mets season. Because i'm still optimistic that it won't be a disaster fair so i enjoy that any of the holidays. That come in the walmarts. Like i get them. Confused labor day memorial day. I don't what's come on man memorial this here okay. Here we go pneumonic device memorial day's may m okay alliteration memorial day's may okay. Good labor day is september. Are you aware of when the fourth of july happens. Gary yes that would be on the fourth day of july. Enjoy that i in non pandemic times. I enjoy the warm weather holidays because what we would normally do is is have people over the house and be out by the pool and cooking and it's one of the few times now one of the few times it's you get a group of people together like when you when you get a certain age. Aged people are busy. And everybody's kids and you don't get together with your friends that often but the warm weather holidays already. Excuse for like hey. I know we don't get together. That might but we seen each other in three months but come on down. We're going to have you know we'll have to green going and the kids can jump in the just catching up time. So i enjoy those whatever those are july fourth would certainly be on that list. I do enjoy christmas eve. Not not this not right now not in this moment but maybe two three more things to do today and then i don't have to do anything else and i know this might sound weird but i don't have the type of jobs where i rarely can look myself in the mirror without being discussed. I rarely can look myself in knocking there. I rarely look in the mirror and saying you know what. There's nothing i need to do right now. That's work related teams twice sixteenth every morning. I've always gotten the radio show twelve months. And so when you get in this part of the even if i don't have like even on a saturday where you might go k. Everything's done for the day. I still got a podcast. Prepare for sunday night or radio show to prepare for a monday. Always doing something that feels work related and christmas is once i get through with the stuff i gotta do today. I i can genuinely. Because i'm not doing radio next week. I can genuinely say you know what. There's nothing i really need to do right now and i don't enjoy that feeling that often i don't enjoy the feeling of. There's really nothing. I need to be doing right now. Other than relaxing or focusing on the kids or the wife or whatever. And so. I like christmas eve only because it is one of the days that gives me that feeling new amsterdam and your future right right. The problem is gotta do. Hq at like five forty five tonight. So i'm not irresponsible that so i'm pour a drink until after. Hq but how about. I'll pour the drink before. Hq and i'll just have it. I'll go. I'll go talk to tommy tran about wisconsin basketball and then it'll be ready ready to go soon as i get done and then i'll start failing miserably putting presents together because that is not one of my That's not that's not. I'm not good at that. I cannot on can you do it. I'm a disaster. But i've given up carrying up just like this thing's gonna get wrapped one way or another. He's gonna fight through. Its plough ahead head down get done. I can't put things. I don't mean wrapping. I mean. I obviously can't do that. I mean like hey dad. Look what santa broncos can you put it together. it's just a case. I'm sorry we won't be listening. Christmas music and i won't be putting your christmas to together. You are wonderful father. i'm. I'm really like i think i'm good at some things but i'm not good at the things a lot of the things that i should be good at like. I genuinely putting them together. It is when my wife needs something done. She doesn't even ask me anymore. And i buy something done. I mean something as simple as we need to hang this picture on a wall but you call her brother. She doesn't even. It doesn't even enter her mind. That maybe i can do this. This this task around the house like we got a toilet. That's been running for six months. I have no idea what to do about bill. Four fifty confident. I could take minutes on youtube and figure it out. But i just i haven't done it yet. This man i am. I am terrible at the stuff that so so many other people take for just just naturally good at or seemed to be naturally. I'm terrible at all of those things. If something breaks in our house it is broken. Till i hire somebody to fix it. There is no scenario like sometimes out here. Now it'd be like you'll talk to somebody away. What did you do this weekend. Well you know. Our dishwasher went out.

What Drives Successful People with Michael Rea and Brad Bromlow

"What's shaking fire nation. J. l. d. here with an audio masterclass on what drives successful people to drop these value bombs. I have brought dr michael ria and brad brownlow low on the mike. Michael founded are saving solutions prescription drug saving software tool that is used by health plans in fortune. Five hundred employers to help their members better understand the pharmacy benefit and make more informed decisions. Brad is a former nuclear submarine officer. He worked in cost estimating engineering b. a s f chemicals in twenty eighteen. He left the corporate world to start his own cookie company fat in weird cookie co and fire nation. Today we will share. What brad and michael would give as a piece of advice to themselves in their twenties. Talk about if it's difficult to say hungary and focus once you've gotten that little piece of success and of course we're gonna focus on the essential traits that successful people have and so much more fire nation. When we get back from thanking our sponsors a degree from creighton hydra college of business will empower you to think boldly lead confidently in shape your future for more program information to schedule an appointment with an enrollment specialist or to start an application today go to grad school dot creighton dot. Edu michael brad say what's up to fire nation and sheer so the interesting about yourself. That people don't know most people do not know that my wife and i got married Six months before we actually got married in front of all of our family so we had a serve ceremony. Just me and her With the pastor and got married and then and then six months later had our actual wedding. I hope some of your friends are listening to this right now and being like no way i had no idea in by the way fire nation. That was brad. So michael was something interesting about yourself. Hey fire nation This is mike. let's see something interesting about myself is that i love las vegas and most people think all that will that must mean you love to gamble or shop or eat and it's actually i just i just love the energy That's that's roaming around The strip everyone's getting off a plane excited for some reason or another that energies palpable. I i love the feel of it or they're getting into a taxi to go back to the airplane. Devastated one of the. It's always one of those. Well that's eight hours later. We'll fire nation as i shared the introduction. We're talking all about what the heck drives a successful people. And i have to successful people on the mike today and i want to start with you mike and talk to us a little bit about the importance of role models in your life like how they shaped you as an entrepreneur. Break that down for us. Yeah good question. I would probably classify my role models into two buckets. I think that my parents Served as really the kind of foundational foundational role models in my life. You know setting values at a young age You know the small things intrigue other people like you want to be treated. Do you say you're going to do and really you know kind of questioning asking. Are you willing to work harder than everyone else to achieve. Whatever it is you're trying to achieve And i think that they they really helped me do that. They helped me appreciate the correlation between hard work and financial reward and to balance. That all with you know really a question of ethics. Are you comfortable with whatever you're doing being you know information that could be shared widely And and and it's a delicate balance. But i think it's one that they helped me understand in in my Connor younger years I would say that the second set of of mentors That i've had are really probably businessmen tours. There's two individuals that i i would kind of label in that category and i think the the help that they provided as really you know guidance from a an entrepreneur's perspective that's invaluable. You know they've lived a lot of the same situations they've dealt with a tough problems a lot of times. They can provide perspective that Makes whatever it is. You're dealing with not seem so daunting i'd probably the last thing on the on the business mentor. Side is just accountability to someone from a business perspective. A lot of times when you're running your own business accountability You know is not as easy to come by because there's no one to answer to So having those folks to say something out loud to and have them check in question And see how you're doing is has been something that's been really helpful. Bradley's pass it over to you talk about any role models you've had. I mean you know you were a former nuclear submarine officer myself being in the military. I know role models are big there but talk about that. How they shaped you as entrepreneur specifically just peeing backing off of what he said. My parents also were big role models. My parents are entrepreneurs. They started their business Thirty three years ago. Which coincides with when i was born So i kind of got to see firsthand entrepreneur life. I think a lot of people kind of see success of an entrepreneur but they don't see the initial starting phase like the struggle the grind in that part. And i i did get to see that with my parents like i got to see the struggles financially. And then obviously the rewards later on in life on with their business so I think that is a unique circumstance. Don't think a lot of people get to grow up with their appearances entrepreneurs so That is i mean. They've been very important role models and they've still helped me to this day with our with our business. A lot of things that we do we wouldn't be able to do without them And then Actually in the fitness world of a lot of role models that we've kind of we became friends with as our social media platforms have grown And i've been able to pick their brains which is a really awesome feeling To be able to reach out to some successful people have kind of already foraged. Pass forward And you get to gun. Ask him questions But i think that role models are important regardless of whether you know they're your parents are or some person i think. Social media brings the ability for people to meet role models See someone that's doing something similar or even just a completely different path but just can can reach out to those people and ask for information and you'd be surprised at how helpful people are willing to be on your your journey when they see that you're willing to put in the work. Well i'm on your instagram account. Right now fat in weird cookie. And i can tell you fire nation. You need like seventeen fitness mentors and role models if you're going to follow his instagram account. Because i want to eat everything. I'm seeing i'm sure there's like one zillion grams of sugar and all of this stuff but it would just taste so great in my mouth. So i love the fact that you're bringing in a fitness component into your cookie brand. That obviously makes a lot of sense for all those reasons. And i wanna stay with you brad. Here i want you to flash back to your early twenties. Could you ever have imagined doing right now. What you're doing today. no. I mean that my degree from the university of florida is in electrical engineering. You brought up my military background. I did nuclear power on submarines So this was not at all what i had planned to my cards. I think you know. I had planned on getting out the navy. Just just taking a regular corporate job in kind of living that life but sometimes Opportunities present themselves in. You need to be able to take advantage of those opportunities. What about you might go back to your twenties like what you're doing right now today. Could you ever have pictured this. No he's so. I went to pharmacy school at the at creighton and I think that you know the to the best i could have expected to. Maybe rise in corporate ranks set a chain drugstore or a pharma company To think that i could combine You know skills that. I learned in school And balance them with skills. I wanted to learn school but then didn't or wasn't able to was software I think it's just a really cool combination. You know all really Guided by the fact that you know we're trying to help people which is just a an opportunity that i saw from a business perspective when i was out practicing after school so It would be a long stretch to convince me that. I would have had foresight to see where i'm at now. Now mike staying with you like looking back to your young south like in your twenties you know. Obviously you know where you ended up now but when you were back there that was an unknown road ahead. What would be a piece of advice. You'd give yourself. And why. I think that i would remind myself that is easy as the magazine article is to read about what appears to be overnight success You know the reality is. It's a lot of hard work and outside of win the powerball It's gonna take a long time to build something meaningful and something lasting but i also think that I would remind myself than that. All of those little things on the journey are what make it special You know you're trying to build a business and you're you're searching for a financial reward as part of that but all of the things that experience on the way our our what. You're really going to remember the long term. What about you brad. Give yourself a piece of advice. That younger south what would it be and why regardless of whether you agree on an outcome of a situation take what you can from that situation. Learn from it and then move forward. I said numerous times people when they say like oh. Do you wish you could have done that differently. Or or what would you change about your life. And i've always said i wouldn't change anything because it's put me exactly where i am right now and You know there are. There are numerous things you can say. Oh i do this slightly differently or do that but truthfully if you learn from your mistakes or you learned from situations then that's the best that can really come bow so bradley. Stay with you now when you had some of that success is it difficult to stay hungry and focus once you started to find success in your life and business for me it. It hasn't been difficult now. We have a baby on the way and so like that's another motivator. Plenty of motivating factors. You can find in your life you know. I wanted a better life for my family. You know i would love to be so successful that by you know immediate family in friends. I could take care of them. So i think that i have a of big enough drive that. I'm not really sure that anything's going to satisfy it completely. So for you make. I mean you know obviously you had to scratch and claw your way to the top and really work hard and he said there is no overnight success. I mean it was over time. And they're stressing. There is anxiety along the way of course but naive achieves success like. Are you having a hard time getting up every morning and staying hungry and staying focus or is it easy for you. It's quite the opposite. I think that people typically go wanted to routes when they hit some level of success in the business. I'm in every day software. A lotta times those hits. Are you know big hits one at a time and i think that some people get comfortable Some people once they get a taste they want more and for me. It's been the ladder i just. I'm more bought into the mission of the company today My wife will confirm that. I'm i'm excited about monday morning. Because i love what i do. I love what i'm doing. And who i get to do it with and i think that you know the fortunate The fortunate piece of this and the thing that makes me hunger is my accountability to the people that come to work with every day. Because we're all on this mission and on this road of trying to achieve something Collectively together and That has made me more excited Not less as as we've kinda hit those levels of success fire nation. You're getting value bombs today and we have some awesome things coming up after the break. We're going to talk about essential traits of successful people. Some unique personal motivations. That mike and brad have. We're going to fast forward twenty years and see exactly where they see themselves or at least where they hope to see themselves as soon as we get back from thinking those sponsors.

We're back and mike listrik with you right now. I wanna talk about the essential traits of successful people over the year. You've interacted with a lot of successful people. You become successful yourself. What are those consistent in essential traits. That seems most successful people have to. There's really things in there. I i remember them Because they're all start with the first one is passion I there's a quote from the book. Grit that says enthusiasm is common and endurance is rare in and i think that really goes along synonymous with passion if you want to operate at a high level for five ten or more years Working on a subject you've got to have passion for what you do And and that's that's really really the key foundation The next one is persistence. You know how tolerant are you hearing the word. No how sure are you that despite what everyone else is telling you that your idea is a good one and ultimately you'll you'll succeed In you've got to have persistence to fight through those those tough times The last one is people skills or communication. You know no. No one person can accomplish by themselves. And so you're going to have to be able to work with people find a players communicate with them and get. Everyone rallied around an idea If you can find if you've got the passion if you're persistent enough and you can find good people to help I think that your chances for success go up exponentially fire nation passion persistence people skills also known as communication. And i love that quote that you share and mike. That's just so killer enthusiasm. Common endurance is rare. And i can tell you firsthand. Fire nation we run podcasters paradise and people joint all the time and they're so excited because they have a great idea for a podcast there so enthusiastic and we're excited for them and we them all along the way but i'll tell you those that are still there a year later three years later five years later at one of the case of us entrepreneurs on fire eight years later that endurance. That's rare but that's where the success is so brad. I know it's going to be tough to talk this one but to take it away brother i find a lot of people that are very motivated and i find that. Most people don't lack motivation. What they lack is execution So many people have great ideas like to start a podcast in. They're very passionate about those things but they don't do it. I think the first step in being a good entrepreneur is doing it. Like you'd need to like just start a lot of people wanna have that four point. oh answer before they. They're they're willing to start. And i'm sure that you can ask. A lot of entrepreneurs was what they started with the best possible thing in the answer is going to be. I'd say ninety nine percent of the time no in it's because starting is the hardest part So i think that the trait that you need to have is the ability to start the ability to execute on on your idea on your passion. So brad you have a child on the way. I want to know if you have any motivations above and beyond that. I took away the easy one because you know. That's the obvious one. What's unique motivation. That keeps you going to very successful sisters. I actually I'm the only one out of our siblings. That does not have a master's degree. So i joke that my sister's keep me on my toes that i've always wanted to push in do more and be more because they're not gonna slow down The nfl look at my parents to look at what they've done. They you know a from us being so young and them not being able to pay bills we literally had the power shut off because they were just putting everything back into their company younger and now my parents are very successful I think they're literally on vacation right now. so just watching that I kind of lit a fire in me. Because i got to see i literally when i get to see like the grind phase like i got to see what it's like to be so poor that you know your power got shut off and you know we had to go stay at our grandparents house because we couldn't you know have power water at her house or no my mom going through the drive through to get tencent cheeseburgers sending us inside to get ten more because the limit was ten per customer and they. We couldn't afford food intent cheeseburgers. Were the cheap way to get it. So i think my that. That's kind of it's been motivated to me because you know we we started at the bottom and now you're here. It really really. So dr mike. What about you. Unique motivations keepdriving forward. I'm going to go back to the easy one that you started off with but But hopefully my reason is a little bit unique For me it's my son He's autistic and has special needs. And i think that you know with that in mind. Our family is really reliant on professionals to help him No matter how bad. I want to help him. There's some things i'm simply not skilled To do and so. I think what i try to do. Is i try to channel that same energy and and try to make a difference and do the things that i can do Which for me is is helping more people. Save money on on medication costs. And i think that just like i'm dependent on you know. The professionals that are that are in his life. That helped him learn there. Are people out there. That are reliant in me in our company on the same in the same way For helping them before medications may otherwise have to go without. So i i try to take that I try to work hard You know with that in mind and in hoping that i can make a difference for those other folks the way the way you know my son's Caregivers have done for him. Where'd you see yourself in twenty years hopefully on a beach. I suspect you know. I'll stay involved in pharmacy or some other type of technology business You know i'd love to mentor other entrepreneurs if i can be helpful in that way But but probably just trying to solve the problem of the day either in pharmacy or with software. Lovett's what about you brad. Twenty years from now. I probably need to be retired. Because my i'm not sure i can keep the endurance as we talked about earlier at the level that i have it right now for another twenty years so hopefully. We built fat weird into Something that's synonymous with a great american cookie or one of those large companies and and And we're retired. Have a place in in florida and a place in montana which is where my wife is from. And that's just in just enjoying the fruits of your labor. Listen man. don't stop at florida. I take my word for to keep coming. Twelve hundred miles east come to puerto rico is paradise. I've been here for years florida's where you go to grow old and die. Puerto rico's where you come to experience paradise brad. I wanna stay with you here now. Let's have you give your top takeaway from this episode. We've dropped a lot of eyeballs hearts of are a lot of great stuff but there's only one thing that fire nation could walk away with today. What would that one thing bay. I truly believe that. I know we didn't talk about it. That much in the beginning but it is the importance of role models And you know you heard. Michael speak about it as well as myself is that you know entrepreneurs are out there that are willing to help you that that love what they do so that passionate about it so it's easy for them to talk about ensure that so i would say the biggest takeaway i would do would say from this whole thing would be fine someone if you're interested in being an entrepreneur. I don't think everyone is but find someone that is willing to be a role model or mentor for you. Reach out to them and start making things happen. Dr mike i would say. It's all about the people if you look at what makes your life good or bad. It's about the people in it Your family your friends but but also your business you need to surround yourself with with a players. As as steve jobs Used to always say and And find people they're smarter than you and that ultimately is what's going to lead you to success whether it's as an entrepreneur leading accompany or working in a corporate division in corporate america. You need to find good people and and have everyone road in the same direction fire nation.

Schedule your free consultation today with clay clark. At thrive time show dot com slash. Fire thrive time show dot com slash. Fire mary marty say was up to fire nation and mary. Let's start with you. Because i know you're something interesting to share by yourself that most people don't know yes john. Thanks for the invite today. It's funny in the emails. I received in preparation. There was a mention of be ready to share something that no one knows about you so i kinda sweated that out a little bit today and came up with something that most folks don't now in fact i'm not even sure my husband knows but Gosh right out high school. i was During some traveling and having a really good time and actually was on a couple of talk shows so like back in nineteen ninety-three. I was on ricky lake. And i was on geraldo those the two biggest shows in the early nineties. Like how does your husband not know about this. Well i was dating la- shows that the topics were like girls at like bad boys and girls that you know that kind of just ridiculous so You know certainly have grown since then. I'm not a fan of bad boys anymore. But yeah those were you know. Even pre like jerry springer days so funny you bring up jerry springer because when you were talking about that now brought up my memories of my spring break in two thousand and two. When i was a junior in college. I was on springer break in jamaica. It was a crazy experience. I don't talk about much either for obvious reasons but talk shows. Yep those are one thing assistance. Stay in the past. Because today's episode fire nation is about putting your best foot forward. That's forward not backward or in the past. And i wanna stay with you. Mary right now and i want to hear about when first started your career. What was your dream job. And how did you brand yourself. So it's interesting. I don't now that early on. I had a dream job I was very people oriented and sales entering technology. So i was able to kind of fall into role with. At and t. And did some large enterprise telkom sales for them and then from there Through technology and relationships Just kind of happened. Stance got into technical recruiting and it was like the perfect blend of relationships sales and technology. So does all kinds of cam together and it's interesting because as my kids. Are you know finishing high school and in college. That's the advice. I give them like figure out what you're passionate about and just start investigating different opportunities in that space. No marty back in the day. You had a dream job. What was that dream job. And how did you bring yourself in order to get your first foot in that door. While i think i had several dream jobs has so it's hard to pigeonhole one and i for a while. I wanted to be a rock musician. Which i did play drums professionally for a number of years. Wow i i also wanted to be a major general manager. Because i grew up playing baseball. Growing up i played through high school and i was going to be a baseball coach So i would say that neither of my dream jobs. I really have a lot to do. With what i do now But you know what i'm doing now is president of to professional. Sports organizations won the aaa affiliate for the kansas city. Royals the omaha storm chasers in the independent professional. Soccer team called union omaha. Those our dream jobs. That as i got into professional sports in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine Those those were jobs. That i could envision getting too i just never you never know how long it's gonna take or it's going to what path it's going to be which we went around the country as in my family and myself but a lot of different things mark. I wanna stay with you here because it just seems to me with all the and you know the jobs that you've acquired in the fact that you were the baseball america minorly executive of the year as well as the p. l. executive of the year. I mean you must be pretty good at networking and it's super important to be able to network but a lot of people out so for those people that are listening. What advice would you have for people who are nervous when they're trying to network mostly just due to lack of experience. What would you say to them. I'm somewhat of a nervous networker. Believe it or not. If there's a room full of people. I have sales people on our staff that can go in just they. They get business cards. They get connections. They make connections linked in whatever. It may be myself. I'm much more relationship based and working with the existing relationships in partners that i have to the network amongst others so those are two different ways to go about it and my suggestion always to our staff whether they're in sales are not everybody in professional. Sports especially at the minor league level is a salesperson. Even our cfo person You know that is that is that is doing invoices. So i always tell. People be a celebrity of influence in your sphere In the in the world that you live in so for me is find what you're comfortable with building relationships and how you're you're comfortable with that in go forth that way but don't sit in the corner. Don't sit behind a desk in wonder who's going to be my next relationship or who's gonna be my next contact. You do have to make happen. So i love that. Phrase fire nation via celebrity of influence in your sphere like don't get overwhelmed and stressed out the needs to be the celebrity of influence everywhere. This is in your sphere. Whatever that niche or vertical that you are actually and so mary same question to you. What would you add to what marty just shared the first thing i would say as people do feel nervous with things that are new or maybe it's out of their kind of comfort zone. Embrace that everyone is nervous about different things. I'm nervous sometimes. When i'm in a room or speaking with with folks that i haven't spoken to use that tier advantage challenge yourself. Ask people to help you with introductions to to meet people within different nations or events but embrace it embrace. It know that it's natural. It's normal. Everyone has some nervous energy. And just push yourself now. I wanna stay with you for this next question here. Mary because literally being overwhelmed is comment. I mean people are overwhelmed. They're stressed out. There's so many things going on and when we're talking to students you know that's a divide their time with classes with commitments with leadership roles with internships. How do they do all of these things like. What would you recommend today students. That are really looking to kind of get pieces of all of these pies but not overcommit not become overwhelmed. What would your recommendation be. I would map out a plan. Maybe over twelve or twenty four months so that you can focus on what you want accomplish during that time and then kind of parse that out. Because you can't be in toastmasters. Have an internship have a part time job being a committee you know and be a full time student so determine what is a priority and go after that and then make sure that that kind of time commitment measures up with the expectations of that group or that internship and so on and be ready to say. Hey the timing off. Can we reconnect next semester. Or you know. Do you have any opportunities available during the summer. So i think the most important thing is. You don't have to say yes to everything but decide. What your priorities are map out. A plan follow the plan and asks for help. I love that idea of prioritizing fire nation. It's so critical. And there's a phrase that i actually do live by. Is that when you say yes to one thing. You're saying no to everything else you could possibly be doing while you're doing whatever it is that yes was so think about that. That makes every more. Yes that much more important more valuable and you're going to prioritize and say yes to what matters and you have to say no to. What doesn't because if it's not a heck yes it's a now it has to be today's world so marty what would you add to this. I agree. I mean be intentional with what you're doing you know. Be in or out whether it's Perspective entrance into our world professional sports staff members that we have here. You know it's It's something that saw critically. It's critically important to make sure that you're intentional. With what what you're doing because you're right if you say he say no to something that means you're saying yes and you need to be all into it you're saying yes. Fire nation wise words from wise individuals. And if you think these value bombs or even close to being done you have another thing coming after the break. Watch out more value. Headed your way if you have a student in high school. Then chances are you're already thinking about college.

Thrive that's thrive at time show dot com slash fire. Mary marty we are back in. I wanna stay with you here martyr. You're on a roll right now. And i think this is a great question for you. Because again with baseball america minor league executive of the year. Pcl executive of the year. You don't get those awards achieve those achievements without differentiating yourself and it's a competitive market out there. I mean it doesn't matter. What niche industry vertical. You're in we're talking. There's competition especially when the prize is worthy. So how can people differentiate themselves in today's competitive market. And you could even maybe move forward with this mardi a little bit and share some things that you look for. When you're hiring in ways that you've seen them successfully differentiate themselves we look for people that have already done so community service people that have a passion in that could be something. That's personal in close to you. Whether you have had your family has had some social issues or you've had health issues in your family or it's just been something whether it's high school or college that you have become engaged in the community from a not for profit perspective. So that's something that we do look for. I because that that shows a sense of community pride empathy sympathy. All the words. And i think that that does separate out because sometimes we're looking for internships Or sometimes when we're doing internships that's all that we're focusing on or not really wide scoping at all. We look for people that have maybe not had direct sales experience but have they had customer service experience. Have they worked to cash register somewhere At a university did they experience in their athletic department or their theater. departments office. Selling tickets is something as basic as that. Those those interactions Really matter when you're talking about someone who can a carrying on a conversation which hopefully is going to lead to developing a relationship so in marty was talking fire nation. Something that came up for me is why wouldn't you look into the core values of the business that you're interested in applying to like. If you did that for mardi you'd find out. Hey they put a high value on customer service. And maybe you emphasize that really make sure to bring that up. Hey they put a high value on volunteering in your community and community service. Why don't you highlight that or make sure that you're patting your stats so to speak in that area. So some great feedback there for mardi. Mary what are your thoughts. Personal branding is so important and that brand starts in college with your reputation. How your peers. Perceive you your professors any academic achievements volunteering and so on so work on that personal brand and remember that every interaction yet you have whether it's positive or negative will impact your personal brand to marty's point kennedy service volunteering Really showing your character and giving of yourself is very important. That is something that will stand out on a resume in reflect at your character so build your personal brand. Keep it in mind have integrity and go wide. Go white with your network so mary. let's talk about your school experience. I mean i know if you're like me that was decades ago. I mean it's been a while since i've been in school but i can still look back and i can just think of some skills that i picked up during my college experience. You know during my time at providence college in rhode island. That's helped me time and time again as i've gone ford in different avenues what would you say is the most or at least one of the most valuable skills that you learn in school. That's helped you throw it your career. Great question really. Two things pop up. I is being able to become more involved in campus life outside of just the classes. So again the volunteering. I in a sorority. I helped with different functions for games and so on suggests being able to be available expanding my network while i was at school and then also getting involved in toastmasters. Toastmasters is a tremendous organization to help people with public speaking. And i find that most folks don't really get excited about public. Speaking or about maybe becoming involved in a group like toastmasters it is time so well-spent and it's a great way to invest in yourself and also invest in your skills. There's almost no meaningful that will not be enhanced fire nation by being a better speaker by being better communicator by being comfortable talking and presenting in front of other individuals like we all get nervous on some levels when we're in front of people speaking but guess what the more you do it the more you realize that. Hey i can do this so same question to you a valuable. If not the most valuable skill that you learn school that helped you throw your career able to multitask with the right things you know. We talked earlier about when you say yes. You're saying no to a lot of things but Being able to go to school hold down a job participate in some of things that mary mentioned earlier. whether it's fraternity sorority whether it's intermurals or your maybe your scholarship athlete in my case When i was going through college. I was advocate. It was just being in my oldest son. Now gavin and i had to navigate Being a single dad working time job going to school full time and then i also started my my professional career if you will. I worked for the baseball program Attacked for three years when i was finishing my marketing degree. So you'll have to be a single parent to do that by your what's important to you is the community service is you know is is is faith important to you is mural sports toastmasters volunteering so many things. Don't do them just to put on a resume. Do them to completion. So make sure. You're not overloading But when you're when you're going through that learning how to multitask for me is really what helped me sad because that's really what we do. A man like baseball we wear so many darn hats Bat really was a great great training ground for me. I didn't even know that it was happening at the time but looking back. That was absolutely number one. Mari hindsight is twenty twenty and knowing that we can look back and say oh man. I really wish i knew this. I wish i did that. What is some specific advice that you wish you knew back when you were in college. That would've really helped you. When you started looking for work post college. I think i probably would have started networking earlier. I did send out letters and those listening. Yes we used to use the post office for everything. And i said ladders to every major league club and a lot of clubs and i i would have done that earlier and i would have followed up with phone calls. It wouldn't it would not have just been sending letters So it would have been a honing my networking skills and doing it at an earlier In an earlier timeframe would probably probably been the thing. I would have gone back and don't know what about you mary. Same i definitely would Have started networking earlier. Probably also tried to take advantage of internship opportunities. I never turned while. I was in college every summer. I was just excited to have a few months off and not do really anything so looking back. I think i missed out on some opportunities that could have helped. Propel my career but I would say internships networking early figure out what companies you're interested in and see it who you know that maybe works there or if your parents you know have friends that work there and so on but just really start kind of identifying industry companies those sorts of things. Before you're out of college you can learn about them. Follow them on Online and try to get a foot in the door marty. We're going to come to you. After mary answers this final question.

#188 Shane Dorian

"Yeah. Lace? Welcome to first-class fatherhood. Welcome everybody sold. One eighty eight of the podcast. I am happy as always be here with you. Thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time listening to podcast, please get over there in Dinant scribe button. You did not wanna miss all the action that it's coming your way right here on first-class. Fatherhood. All right dads. I have an outstanding guests bring you guys today. He's a first class father who happens to be one of the best big wave surfers in the world. He has been crushing the waves professionally since he was a teenager, Shane Dorian. We'll be here with me shortly. So please stick around for the interview and speaking of teenagers now have one living in my home yesterday. Our oldest son Christopher turn thirteen years old. And I couldn't be more proud of the person he is and the person he is becoming the future is very bright for old checkmate, Charlie. And I am extremely blessed to be his father. He definitely makes me feel like a first-class father every day. So it is a new chapter in our family here. And he really enjoyed his birthday. I posted up a picture or two from our botchy dinner last night. And I also posted up some. Pictures of my daddy daughter date, the frozen on Broadway. My daughter Emily was just mesmerized by the entire experience at the top. It off Robert Creighton who plays the Duke of Wesson took us onstage and backstage, and that really just made the experience that much more. Incredible Robert Creighton is a class act and a wonderful performer, and I would expect nothing less from James Cagney fan, and you can hear my interview with the Duke of Wesson back on episode one fifty three and one thing that I did wanna share it. You guys about that night during the intermission. I was waiting online to use the restroom with my daughter who was wearing her light up Elsa dress. She looked so beautiful. So many people were commenting on it. And one woman online said all I love her dress. Where did you get it? And before I had the opportunity to answer. She laughed and said, oh, I should be asking her mother. And I said, no, you can ask me dads by their kids close as well. And I bought this one at target. But right, there is one of these fools stereotypes about dads. That is completely incorrect. Now, she had no idea what my situation was. I could've been a single data. A widow dad, gay dad, whatever it didn't matter. She just has this image in her head of what fathers are like and her comment reflected that I wasn't insulted in any way. But I mentioned it here. Just because there is a very tilted picture of fatherhood portrayed by pop culture that doesn't match up with how dad's really are. And if you need any proof of this, you could just scroll through the now one hundred and eighty eight episodes of this podcast and listen to it. So many of the men who have accomplished everything from winning Super Bowl. MVP's being navy seal team six operators to entrepreneurs who have amassed a fortune and everything in between, and despite all these incredible achievements. It has been through the experience of fatherhood that has brought them the greatest sense of fulfillment in their life. And it is a great testimony to father hood is really all about and right here. We are celebrating fatherhood and family life because fatherhood rocks. Family values rule and every day is Father's Day right here with me, and I'm going to jump into the action right now at surf boarding legend, Shane Dorian, Alec lace. And you're listening to first class fatherhood. I cannot say thank you enough to all the listeners out there. You'll hear a word from my sponsors in the middle of today's interview if you would like to help me make first class fatherhood, Ed free, please consider becoming a supporter of the podcast by hitting the link in the description of today's podcast episode. All right. And joining me now is a first class father. He spent eleven years towards the world championship tour as a professional surfer. He has won numerous big wave awards including water man of the year right of the year and best overall performance. He is also an inventor who created a revolutionary device to aid in the safety of surf borders. All over the world. It is a privilege for me to say, Shane Dorian. Welcome to first class. Fatherhood. Very thanks for having me. All right. Let's start here. How many kids do you have in? How old are they kid? I have a daughter in Charlie. She's nine years old. And I have a son named Jackson who twelve wow, very, cool, and what type of sports activities into my daughter's into dancing, like she she does ballet, and she also those who and she just started surfing recently. And then my son is mostly into surfing skateboarding. Okay. And please Shane take a minute here. Just to hit my listeners a little bit. About your background. And what you do. Yeah. My name is Shane Dorian. I'm from Kona in Hawaii. And I'm I'm forty six years old, and I've been a pro surfer graduate high school, and I was born and raised in Hawaii. And I still a pro surfer. I I focus on big wave surfing. And, but but these days, I'm easing more into, you know, a lot more parenting and a little bit less surfing. But still a lot. Okay. Forty six that puts you at about thirty four when you became a father. So how did the experience of becoming a dad change your perspective on life? Oh, man. You know, for me, I was really focused on surfing really large waves when I had kids. And and so for me, it was a it was a bit of an adjustment because surfing really huge ways is really dangerous. Have a lot of really good friends that have have passed away surfing, really big ways. And so it was just a situation for me where it started making me think, you know, think a little bit more response. Ably. And you know, I've I kind of realized I had a it wasn't just me anymore. You know? So I I it makes them smarter choices for my kids. And and you know, just be the around more. I you know being server. Being a pro surfers a is pretty selfish lifestyle. Really? You don't really have to think about really anybody. But yourself most of the time. And so so, yeah, it's like when you have kids it's like, it's not just about you anymore. It's about it's about, you know, sharing a lot of your time with your family. Yeah. Very well said, and I heard you on Joe Rogan's podcast saying that you have been travelling the world surfing as young as twelve years old. And now that you have a twelve year old yourself is that kind of put things in perspective for you in sense that could you imagine your son doing what you did at that age? Yeah. It's pretty weird. I mean, I I I started traveling a lot when I was about twelve thirteen years old, and I actually moved I moved away I moved to another island to to pursue surfing. When I was when I was fifteen years old. So I was pretty much on my own when I was fifteen. Wow. Yeah. Incredible. And what does the experience been like for you to teach your kids how to surf and do they enjoy it? Yeah. I mean, it was for for, you know, it's so normal way to to serve right? So it was just a, and is it was also something that I was all all these really passionate about so. So when I had kids I I really wanted to share that surfing lifestyle. And and you know, I really wanted them to have surfing in their life just for the rest of their lives. 'cause it's it's a it's a great way to meet friends is a great way to stay healthy. And and it's a great reason to travel go and surf new ways, and and and just do different things and travel the world. And so yeah. But it's is funny. As a parent, you know, it's like we really want our kids to like the things that we like, but you really can't force that on you, can you can hope for that. But you can't really make it happen. So I both my kids surfing with the with the hope that they would really enjoy it. And I just got really lucky 'cause my kids love surfing who'll. Yeah. And it seems like surfing is something that wouldn't really change much over the years. But what have been some of the biggest? Changes that you've seen surfing since you started as a kid. Oh, man. It's it's it's a relatively young sport, you know, involving pretty quick rate. What one of the biggest things these days is is way pools and actually in Texas right now with my son Jackson and three of his friends from home. And we're we're here just in some coaching training and stuff in a in a in a wave pool in Waco, Texas, so so like, it's an artificial wave. But the ways, you know, the has like thousands of as a day, you know, they come in. And and and it's very mechanical, so it's so it's really easy to train kids. And learn new tricks and learn to do different things that you're trying to to, you know, get better with. So that's that's that's probably the biggest things is. You know when I was a kid. I only dream of of of way poll than actual perfect waves coming in. And now, you can you can you can create them. Yeah. And it is just amazing. What is available today with the technology. All. Across the board. And technology is one of these things that is a double edged sword. It creates a challenge for many parents out here, including myself, and I know you have the kids outdoors quite a bit. But how do you of handle video games, and technology and all that stuff where your kids? Yeah. It's a very tricky thing 'cause I just try to wear my kid or screen time. And then it's very limited. Especially on school days. They have big at very little, and they have to to really earn it. And I'm happy to take it away when they're not. They're not doing what they're supposed to be doing. So, but yeah, my, you know, my it's funny. I've I have friends that are like you're so lucky that your kids don't like video games. And I'm like, I don't know what you're talking about my kids like a lot. I just don't let them sit on video games all day long. You know, so many so many parents these days they just will like just like either kidding. I Pat and just forget about the rest of the day. It is time to get an important worth more sponsors than back with more from Shane Dorian. I'm Alec lace. And you're listening to first class fatherhood. I father who is being sponsored by karma project.

But if you're finding your kids are more interested in listening to cartoon characters than you the parent. Here's a great way to get your kids thinking about what good behavior really is the sir that game show app is so much fun for kids five to eight who are challenged to figure out. What's polite were rude who left a mess or what's right for the environment while absorbing good messages about how behavior can affect others checkout, sir, dapper dot com. To learn more. That's S. I R D A P P dot com. Yeah. And with that Shane what type of disciplinary are you as a father? You know, I I'm I it's it's a tough. You know? I I definitely I spent a lot of my kids. I spend have, you know, great manners and be kind the honest, and that's all I really ask for is for them to try heart. You know in school, and you know, sort of whatever they want to do I expect them to really try hard. And and you know, besides that I don't ask for a whole lot. So but yeah as far as the as far as discipline? I don't know. I mean for me, it's like, you know, taking away things they like, which is really hard to do as a parent. You know? Yeah. Definitely. And I have three boys and girl, she's my youngest. And I do discipline her a bit differently than I do the boys. And sometimes I struggle with saying no to her, and it's something that emotionally as a father. I need to improve on for sure they really need Andries though. You know, that's that's the best thing for them. They, you know, they don't need a friend any parents. So. So that's a it's a it's hard 'cause we all wanna be their friends. We wanna do fun things all the time. And when it's time to you know, if they if they mess up or or they, you know, they don't do what what they should be doing. It's easy to just kinda cop out and just like let them get away with it. But you know, I I really feel like they need boundaries. Yeah. Very well said all right now, you created something called the V one inflatable wetsuit. What was the Genesis of that Shane are many surfers using it nowadays? Yeah. The v one is it's an inflatable wetsuit. And I I got the idea 'cause I almost died surfing big waves. I was surfing at a at a break called Mavericks in Half Moon bay and the ways we're giant. I had a big wipeout and got pulled underwater for multiple waves. And I basically almost drowned it was very very close. Call. And so I had to come up with something. I tried to come up with something that would would would make surfing really big waves a whole lot safer and so. I I I started messing around and and basically develop a wet suit that incorporated, a CO two gas cartridge a really small cartridge, and then an air bladder that is built into my wetsuit. And so and it's it's manually inflated. So if you're held on underwater, and you feel like it's really dangerous situation. You have a poll on the front of your wet. You'd actually have four of them. Now four pulls in front of your wet. When you pull that it opens that to cartridge into the bladder and it creates like a big air bubble in your wetsuit. And it brings you to the surface. Yeah. Wow. That is incredible. And now with all this technology has made it a lot more easier to follow surf boarding along. And makes it accessible to everybody of. But that wasn't the case when you were first starting out, you couldn't just watch these events on YouTube or somebody's live gopro feed. So who did you kind of look up to when you were just I turning pro who kind of inspired you early on? I was just probably talk surfers that that were competing full time on the world tour in surfing similar to where they have different styles on the tour different competition stops around the world. And and so when I was a kid I looked up to guys like Tom Carroll. Tom Curren Martin Potter just some of the guys were really talk surfers in like the mid to late eighties. And but yeah, there was no internet then. So it was really difficult to watch the events in and really like keep in touch with with what was happening, and it's so easy. These days every single event as has a live webcast. A lot of them are on television. And so it's so easy for the kids now to keep in, touch, and and watch through social media and all the different all the different outlets. It's so it's so easy for them to stay in touch. Yeah. Definitely. All right. What's next for you? You've had so many accomplishments on the surfboard here. What kind of goals are plans? Do you have yourself a future, man? I just wanna be a great dad. Actually, I'm really enjoying the being a dad, and my kids are are sort of right in the middle of of of their age like before they before they're out of the house. Probably. So I'm really gonna really try and maximize and enjoy the the next six or seven years, you know, well, while they're still living under my roof. And yeah, it's just I'm having a blast. And I wanna be good dad. Yeah. And my oldest just turned thirteen yesterday. So we are in uncharted waters here in my family. But I mean, whereas ready as we're ever going to be a tough age, man.

Shane love to ask all the dads that I get on the Pont kiss. What type of advice? Do you have that new dad or for that about to be father who's out there listening? Oh, man.

153: Teams Who Adapt Will THRIVE in 2020 w/ Greg McDermott

"I welcome in another edition of be good and plenty podcasts and I'm joined by Creighton head coach Gregg mcdiarmid, and this looks very professional. First of all, you look. Way More professional you got a microphone I mean come on what's going on. We're in the pandemic here I expect he's going to be in your basement. Golf clubs in hand and look at you completely doing. Well. When you surround yourself by good people that are smarter than you then you're able to look a little bit more professional than you really are. So. Over under the amount of round, you played golf during the pandemic I'm going with fifty. Significantly over wow you know we we had good weather in March and April here so and and You know when we got shut down The big east tournament when the game got called a at halftime you know before they shut down any airlines I jumped on a plane Tarazona for a couple of weeks. So was able to get a bunch and so you know it's it's it's one of my hobbies that I really enjoy and fortunately through this pandemic was one of the few things you could actually do. So. But I will say that the the theory that if I could just play more golf I'd be better. That does not hold true. It is not true. Doesn't matter how much I play is is your son good is Doug. When you guys go out there who's better? What I just I just saw a couple of days this week and his handicap is slightly better than mine. But, some of his money is in my pocket after those two days ago. So so like what were you bet I mean probably a little mentally stronger than he is well, we know that what what were you guys gamble? Does it really matter anymore like how you I mean he he makes more than you now. Really, the the amount is insignificant, it's just who has to pay who and how painful that is when that happened. So we have a good time with it. My oldest son Nick plays a bunch too. So it's a great way to spend some family to you don't get therese out there with you. She does not play golf, which is probably a good thing into an Sydney. Doesn't either so it's it's pretty much just Agus. So. I've heard according to my sources that the other thing that you've spent a lot of time with over the pandemic is your grilling game. Trail trying to really up your grilling game and. I don't know if you're going to be you know cooking at at the drove or anytime soon here but. How's that gone? I enjoy throwing some food on the smoker I enjoy the grill and again, a lot of restaurants closed during the pandemic. So it gave us something to try and do and Doug was back here botch as were. Both all three of our kids. So I think Doug even learn to cook a little bit which is a that's really incredible when you think about that but you know it's it's something that's fun to do and I enjoyed it. A good way to kill some time. The I'm pretty limited with my cooking abilities I. Can you know hamburgers hot dogs, chicken maybe some salmon. Simple. Yeah. Got To keep it simple I. mean got to keep it simple So practice starts this week. Crazy I. Mean we're finally Cata here at a point where we feel like basketball is is around the corner NBA over now, we got forty five days from or tape in this. To win the season is supposed to start on. November twenty fifth. What's IT GONNA be like this week with practice starting up. Do you think? Well. Fortunately, the NCWA gave that window of three weeks where we could gradually kind of gear the guys up and and get them back on the practice floor and and the reality of it is you know many of our guys played very little to no five on five from the middle of March until last couple of weeks ago. So you know trying to get that timing back. And just get them get them to feel like they. You know they've they're back in a groove a little bit and and just to conditioning part of it because you know had we had him here all summer they're playing five on five. They're playing pickup games four five days a week When you take that away, it really takes some time to get some of that back So that's that'll. Be really the the early part of practice. Let's make sure they're in shape. Let's make sure their bodies are right Let's gradually introduce the full corp part of it. It's a big part of what we do in the speed with which we do it But these three weeks have given us a at least an opportunity to to gradually have some things that we've been able to give to him. And the older guys doing a great job trying to help the new guys fit in as quickly as possible. What worries you the most about this season is it the contact tracing part of all this that if somebody gets cove VID, they're out fourteen days but you can't necessarily test out of quarantine if If you've been around that person who tested positive well, I mean the current recommendations are if somebody tests positive your whole really tier one group shuts down for fourteen days and I don't think a season is realistic. If we have to follow those protocols I think it's just going to be very difficult because as we're seeing, I think you know people people get it and some people get sicker than others. But you know that's going to be very difficult because in basketball you know Jeff as you know like we're not just sitting out two weeks we can't sit out two weeks in play a game, the next Tuesday there's going to be some time that you're going to have to ramp that backups. So you know my charge with the Big East and with our administration we have to get. To Thirteen Games. As soon as we possibly can, we've got to get to the minimum number of games to make sure you qualify for the NC Double A. Tournament. In case some crazy things happen. You know sometimes you can do everything right in your two opponents are shut down, and then who do you play and I think there has to be able to you have to be flexible I'm hopeful. That across the country if if some some teams are shutdown across other leagues and we can't play because Seton Hall. And Providence is shutdown in Kansas state can't play because they're supposed to play Texas Tech and Texas can we play Kansas? State that week you know I I hope that they'll be some flexibility to allow us to do that. Let's just try to get games in. Let's let's have these guys have normal of season as we possibly can in some really abnormal times. Yeah I mean listen adapt it. Got To be the biggest word of this season. The Maze is who cares who you play where you play 'em as the season goes on just play games do it for the kids as much as anything else and for a sense of normalcy you've got a good team though I mean you you you had a healthy team last year you got a team that I, don't know if people realize could be as good if not better despite losing touch shot Alexander because you've got bigs now I mean what what's it like to actually have big again Yeah it's been great and you know having said that Christian bishop and Calvin Jones were terrific last year and when we went to the Small Ball Lineup with with Mahoney or Jefferson at the five, we had a lot of success, but we're going to miss I sean. He did you take for granted the the offensive numbers the assist to turnover and? Efficiency. offensively. But you know what? He was able to do defensively really was to take the other teams best perimeter player out of the game and make it very difficult on him and somebody's GonNa have to embrace that role. I. Think Denzel Mahoney's hungry to do it I. Think daime Jefferson Kelp can help us Marcus Figaro Sqi can take some of that load as well but you know I like this team. And and you know we we have a lot of pieces back. Jacob Persson is back on the practice floor doing some really good things and they grind college Brenner the freshman from Saint Louis as a chance to to really have an impact on this year's team. So we have some depth on the front line that we didn't have last year that hopefully can provide a little rim protection on the back of that defense. Yeah I've heard Cock Brenner has been pretty impressive so far from from from a few people around there what what's his game like and? How do you see his role being this year? Well, it reminds me a lot jeff at Brooke Lopez I mean that's kind of how he moves A. Big. You know really you know legit seven footer, but but skilled can step out and shoot the basketball and is very skilled on the post right and left hand left shoulder right shoulder that any difference, and now it's just a matter of the speed of the game especially for us much different than the high school level him getting accustomed to playing with that pace in that speed making some of the reads on the parameter when we pop him to the top of the floor, but we're going to have to throw it to him some of the block to because he's very crafty when he catches it down there. And it's just going to be. It's going to be a nice piece for us to be able to rotate 'em and Jacob Been Christian and maybe move Christian to the four some. You know some possibilities that didn't exist last year certainly there for the taking this year. So I have to admit and and you don't need to tell Mandaeans Act but I never thought I'd put Marcus Garage as a preseason first team all American but I think that's where I'm leaning towards going right now. I remember seeing him she maybe his. Sophomore year high school when he came and he played new report high school and thinking like good little player like Nice player. But I did never see this type of progression what What have you seen since you first laid eyes on him to now that enabled him to get to this point. You know I think the first time I watched him I think my feeling was probably similar to yours. You know this kid really knows how to play the game and then you watch another game and you watch another game and you you realize how much he acts winning and how he has his fingerprints all over a game and that's what became impressive to me. Watching is a team and the success that they were able to have You know he made other guys better yet. He could hit the big shot at the big time. Or make the right play of the Mike rate at that time. So. It's been fun to watch him. He's a perfectionist by nature is really really hard on himself, and that's something that we're trying to work through because he has to kind of get past that. And move onto the next play quicker but it's also what's made made him great. So it's a fine line that we walk. You know trying to get him just to be a little bit less harder. Himself play game play with joy but you know he scores at all three levels He's a great leader seize the floor You know he really fits our UPTEMPO system because of the plays that he can make in transition and you know as you know having having gotten to know the family is just delightful to coach. You know he's one of those guys that. You wish you'd have on your team every year because he's that much fun to be around. One. Hundred percent is he back? He told me months ago that he thought he was he was going to be better than because he's dealt with some injuries that have been nagging over the last couple of years and. The knee. Injury getting that cleaned up. How does he look? I think his body feels better than it ever has. So I, think physically I think he's in as good a place as he's as he's ever been now it's just a matter and you know I've explained Marcus when you when you miss four months, you don't come back and play like you were playing in March it's just GonNa take some time to get your timing back to get your feel back, and then you add to it the the inability to play five on five when he did get back and get healthy so it's going to be a process and You know he's got know trust his teammates like he always has and I think he'll be playing basketball when we when we make the turn probably two, thousand, twenty, one, I think it's GonNa, take him some live game action to get back to where he was but the bodies great. He's really put on some some significant strength that I think's GonNa, help him on both ends of the floor. GimMe your favorite memory coach in your kid. Coaching Doug and then give me the story that that's never been told if there is one of when you guys just went added about something whether it's a play call something because I I know your relationship. And he's so easy going. You know where I stand with him. One of my favorite kids maybe favorite kid I ever covered doing this. But, there's to be something there where you guys just went at it right? I mean, there were time certainly and I think is is freshman year. That was difficult for him because obviously I'm gone from his father's voiced his coaches voice and it's different But you know we had a couple of times there was there was a there was an ESPN game against Wichita state one year where I really got after a minute time out of face to face and My wife didn't really have much to do with me when I got home that night but. You. Know it was a great experience. As you know Jeff I wish a lot of people could experience what I was able to experience I. Think you know looking back at the positive things you know certainly nba draft night was something that. You'll never forget but I think going to that first NC Double A. Tournament together winning that Missouri Valley. Conference Championship when he was a sophomore. You know going back to the double term having your son is part of the team is something. That's that's pretty cool. But you know as I look back on it now you know he scored a ton of points over three thousand points and you know I get to be part of all those games, all those practices and you know, and now that he's in the NBA now we can have those basketball talks that we didn't really have when he was in college because you're not going to call your coach about something. He'd had enough of me and practice but now we can talk basketball talk how he's playing. Where does he fit? What's he got to get better at? You know how how do I best adjust to you know a different culture different team which has happened to him several times throughout his career. So you know it's it's a fun relationship and obviously we ate we both love basketball. So you know that part of it's been really neat from Father, son? Perspective? Is Crazy to think where you were like ten years ago and where you are. Now, what Creighton has been able to allow you in terms of the success you've had the almost peace of mind you've had to coach the way you want to recruit the type of cage you WANNA recruit. Yeah Yeah You know we obviously, we were successful at northern Iowa and we didn't get the job done at Iowa state the way that I wanted to. I think we'd left it in a better spot than we when we then when we got there there were a lot of things behind the scenes Kinda had to be cleaned up, and obviously when Fred took over he he he did an unbelievable job. But you know Creighton is really fit me and you know Bruce Rasmussen is terrific. I think one of the best athletic directors in the country and you know his vision you know as we sit in this beautiful practice facility, this is something that was designed before we were even thinking about going to the Big East and you know now we have one of the top facilities in the country and we're in a great basketball conference basketball centric concert conference. So it's it's it's really become home for us and You know that's been fun and and as you know I've. had. A change in my coaching philosophy during my time at Creighton and that was that was hard for me at first because you kind of have to let go of some things that you've worked for you in the past and kind of explore this newness in the game that you really haven't tinkered with very much but it was also fun and it was I think of, as it was rejuvenating to talk to people that play the way that we play, get new ideas and then kind of formulate a new philosophy of how you want. This to look in in the pieces it, you have to bring on board to make it happen and It's been a lot of fun for us in a lot of great assistance that have worked with me during that time which has made it really really enjoyable. But we're hopeful that you know we brought some value to the big east and and certainly the Big East is brought value to Creighton and helped I think promote our program at a national basis in a way that we weren't able to do prior to US entering this leak. Do you remember what it was or who was that that actually enabled you to to say, yeah, I'm Gonna I'm GonNa. Change Kinda. How I go about, you know whether it's a system or or whatnot. Was it something specific somebody? I. You know it really was the first first year at Creighton you know we. We ended up plane I think in the CBI. And we had we got beat in the first round of the Big East or the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament and we had ten days before we played. So I had a very senior Laden team. Caleb Korver and Darryl Ashford Wayne. Reynolds Kenny Lawson. Casey Herman and then I had a bunch of young guys that was Doug Freshman class with giants granted transferred in. Ethan Raggi was young. So we had to figure out something to do those ten days. So we set it up like a seven game NBA series and we took the older guys on one team, and then we played some of the red shirts and younger guys on the other team and and we allowed that team to just play fast. Antoine Young was on that team was A. Believe. He was a junior at the time as a point guard and and once we got going up and down and seeing what Doug and Ethan and grant giants, how they were functioning in the full court gregory at unique ages become eligible. Then we really liked what we saw and then it was almost fate in our second game we play. Davidson. And and coach Mackillop and I think the score at halftime was fifty four to forty eight and and we couldn't stop them and they were they were we ended up winning one hundred to two, ninety, four, ninety, six but you know the they're they're spacing was. you know the way they used their bags in transition and attacked you make or miss every single time. So that really got it started in that game for me came at the perfect time to see what you could do with maybe you know not a bunch of guys that can top touch top of the square, but guys that really know how to play the. Game of basketball, how you can play with pace and play fast and be successful and to be honest, Jeff, the mortgage into it it was really fun for me to coach. It's a fun system to play. It's a fun style to play like most players will tell you the ask him how you WanNa, play you WANNA play fat they sell they'll say they WANNA play fast. I don't think many understand how hard it is to play fast to do it consistently to have the impact that you wanted to have an a game you've got to do it every time and and I think those are some lessons I took from coach Mackillop and watching film of his teams play, and then we've just kind of build it to fit our personnel in our system and it's been a lot of fun. That's interesting I never heard tell us third before of kind of that that you know that run and Davidson and I didn't know that so interesting. was just ended up being a perfect storm.

What's the latest on Big East right now I mean we're kind of waiting right and I had heard these rumors that there might be some sort of bobble months ago in Omaha, they might do to different sites. What's the latest from what you're hearing and how big is going to do their schedule? Well I think we're. Close to coming up with some sort schedule at least for December and. As we talked about earlier I think everybody's probably agrees we need to play as many games as we can as fast as we can you know most of our campuses are going to be empty for the must month of December and a good portion of January. Let's try to get as many games in as we possibly can during that time where you're essentially kind of created a small bubble on your. Own campus because nobody else is here You know I think the I, think the bubble of possibility I think that you're foolish if you don't prepare for something like that in case things go a different direction and it's the only way to get games in and I think our our league is doing a good job of preparing for something like that. Should we need to do it? I think coaches are probably. In agreement that we would like to think that that's a last resort. Let's try to play someone campus and see how that goes but you know I think you have to have that as part of your playbook to try to get the season because we have we have some really good teams in this league to season. How many games you have right now locked in I know you got the deal out at and. South Dakota Right. You got that one. You'RE GONNA go visit my rushmore take your kids there while you're over there. Well you don't know your geography because Sioux falls rapid city South Dakota. It's not like you're just walking across the street. It's a, it's a half a day, Dr Jeff, and if you'd come and visit the Midwest and the upper midwest little more often. and Get out of your little. World there on the East Coast you would realize there's some great things here but you know we have three games there We are going to go to Kansas for sure talked to coach self last week. And I think we have that worked out. That we will play a game there I believe on December eighth. And we're just working a couple of home games and then we're coach Roy I. And discussions on how how are we going to play our game with likely the big ten and the big east starting in December when we usually played a game so it's trying to find a spot for that work for both teams but then not now your to your seven and you have twenty league games and away you go so you know there's not a lot of flexibility but you know I, liked the fact that I have an experienced team I would hope will handle that better than some others. Yeah. I think and I've done this when I've ranked in the preseason the teams have bring back a ton of players like you guys like, Villanova, like Baylor Gonzaga. are going to have a major advantage this year aren't you? I think experience always matters in college basketball and I don't think that's ever been in question and you see teams at that that have guys that have been around and Ben in their system and it just makes it so much easier. I think this year because this year. So different, I think it's very very important to your point and you know that's been kind of our mantra. This year is like it's going to be different. There's going to be interruptions. We have to do different better than everybody else and and we have to be able to just to the things that are gonna come our way and. You know hopefully our guys are mature enough to. Here's one that people ask me that I don't even know how to answer yet. And you may not have an answer on this yet. Our fans going to be allowed. Into into the arena. Do Do you have any idea yet how that's going to play out to start the season and as we go along? You know there's so many layers to that and I think we're in the middle of that you know I it has to be allowed where you know in the county that you live in and I think for us it is. Now. It's a matter of of how many can we you know effectively make sure we have social distancing. How do people get into the game? How do they get out of the game There's there's a lot of there's a lot of planning that goes into that, and then you know you have to have the blessing of your conferencing of your university So I think there are places where there won't be any fans and I think there are some that hopefully can try it and see how it goes in I'd like to think that we could be one of them but having said all that you have to. Obviously our players and staff safety. Is Paramount, and then you have to pivot to you know fans are going to want to come to the game, but you also want to make sure you're providing them a safe environment as well. So you know there's a lot of check marks at after be checked before that happens I. Think you know football even though it's outdoors. I. Think having some Games on TV and people getting more comfortable understanding try to wear masks the best you can. In those environments, I think that all helps So you know I'm hopeful that will at least be able to play in front of a few fans. Yeah I'm trying to figure out where where I should go where I can go for it to start like Mohegan Sun and two hours from me. So I don't have to get on a plane and go there. Do I go to Orlando do I? Go, go see you know South Dakota and you can take me on a on a little trip there of what's in the Mid West I don't know. Well. There there will be fans I know they're I think there'll be three or four hundred per school. At least, that's the plan right now for the for the events who falls in the Sanford L P people will do a great job up there. Obviously, it's a huge medical. Hospital organization that's putting it on. So Safety will be first and foremost. We're planning a wonderful facility in the Pentagon and I think it'll be a obviously it's a great event. There's some good teams in. Egg. Circling back to the very first question to you on your golf game I was thinking who's the Best Golfer of any college basketball coach in America. Man. There's some. Really good that we don't know about out there. Dan. Marley. Great. Player. He's not surprise college basketball now, but he was for long time but he you know he's a scratch Golfer Steve. Alford player. You know there's there's some good ones Ricardo Pat and used to be. With him a little bit is a really good player Doc Adler socks he's not near as thinks. But now there's there's a lot of guys that like to play the game and enjoy the game. Well listen I appreciate you jumping on I do hope all is well I. Hope you guys can get going practice here this week and kind of return to some sense of normalcy. I know you already have a little bit. And I think as we get closer here, we we just need everybody to Kinda have their schedules in place and the next couple of weeks. Be Back, practicing, and you know listen to November twenty fifth. Yeah, you know that's our hope. Let's Let's let's get there. Let's get start playing some games and and I think once the Games Start I think that's even more motivation for our team to make sure you're doing all the right things when you're not in our facility now it's easy to control what's going on here college students when you when you leave the walls of this building and you in you're out on campus with students in the community with other students you know that's a problem can arise. So hopefully as we get closer to those games They'll be even more motivation to make sure we're doing the right things and you know hopefully we can have a great season. Next podcast will do your son was working out. So he was unable to to surprise you and and pop on until a few stories you know ripping on you but next we'll have to I have to coordinate it a little better. Yeah, he he enjoys that he. But He needs to be back in the gym. So that's good to hear is imaging shooting the ball shooting the ball and he needs what he needs a haircut. That's what he needs. You are right there I don't think there's maybe been one slight trim since the middle of January. So I don't know how I don't know how Theresa let him. Go. Out. With that he thinks it's pretty cool but. I don't know. He quit listened to me a long time ago. Yes. Well, that's happening right now with my daughter trust me seventeen years old. And you get that. You know they know everything and she's had her license for for a month and you know you can't tell her anything about you know. What she's doing wrong none of it. Now that's the that's the beauty of those teenage years and sometimes when they get to twenty three or twenty four. They'll come back and. Look at you and say you weren't as dumb as I thought you were all those years but That's about that's about as close to compliment as you're GONNA. Get. Well, listen thanks for jumping out again, we'll talk soon and hopefully hopefully, we'll get a chance to see at some point this year. Are always great to catch up. Jeff, you gotta thanks correct Acre.

I'm excited about it. I've known about you for a while and let. Hey It's like a beautiful community bill. The branding is gorgeous. It's all the fields. Can you tell us a little bit about the dirty? Just tell us how you created create and cultivate and like where it all started and where you started and all that. Yeah I mean. It's it's a long story. I've been around for a long time but yeah it really started when I started my first company. I was twenty three when I started that company and basically had no idea what I was doing but was super eager really excited and really naive which is kind of a perfect combination for this. Yes and basically made a lot of mistakes. You know I wasn't a business person. I was always a creative. That was sort of my. My Jam was putting together the ideas and the brands and the partners and things like that and basically got a crash course in entrepreneurship and was looking for places online places. Offline where you know there were other women kind of going the same thing and it didn't really exist. It didn't really exist at the time. This was like a long time ago. Now now that there's a million places even go which is great but basically I was like okay. I'm GonNa Throw this thing together. Called CREIGHTON cultivated. See if any of my freelancer friends or entrepreneur. Friends want to go to palm springs in kind of do some workshops people speak and see what happens in twenty five people came all of which I knew it was cool. I never thought it would ever be thing and then you know a couple of weeks later. Someone's like Oh when's the next next one? I'm so tired from the first one but yeah whatever let's do it again and then just kept doing it for three years and I always tell people like it. Made no muggy like a wasn't a business. It was a side project. In fact I lost money on a lot of them for the first three years and I had my other company that I was still running in. This was just like a total side-hustle fun selfishly like way for me to meet cool women and get advice and basically someone kind of pulled me aside you know off with the three years and was like this is your brand and I was like. We're not like a business. It's like if you do this all day long for other people. Why aren't you doing it for yourself? You know you run. A marketing and Events Agency. You give other brands advice. Take your own advice like better yourself and you know. I listened to that advice. I invested in the company and turned it into a real company and hired employees in Sir taking it a little bit more seriously and you know three or four years later here we are God. It's so cool. It's so impressive reminds me also Ryan? Holiday was just. You're saying Kathy. It's it's not like I had an ear giants bestseller out the gate. I gave away three books as lever by creating a blog. And doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and then I had a book you know what I'm saying like I think people don't really hear it. They don't see that part or they don't WanNa see that part. I'm not sure but I love that you were so generous and like shared all those you know sort of behind the scenes so then when you were like all right. Let's actually start to do this and turn into a prophet? What were those steps and what happened? Yeah so basically you know. One was bringing on employees to help me through it because events. You know obviously require a lot more than one person so brought on a team by team. I mean like two people consider like more than myself and basically I was like okay. Let's figure out how we make money doing this. And you know it was a combination of one. Didn't really want to charge high price tickets. Which is something that you can go that route and you know a lot of people do where there's thousand two thousand dollar tickets and things like that. I really really really wanted to keep it as assessable as possible without obviously like losing a ton of money so I really started relying on brands. Which was my forte. I had been doing marketing events with brands. I knew what they want and I started putting together packages for brands to get involved in in the event and again that sounds so obvious but I think at the time you know there wasn't that many of these events that were really cool. Really fine had a really good audience also had amazing speakers That were doing fun stuff with brands beyond just slapping a logo on like a step and repeat so. That's basically what I started to do. And Luckily I had this kind of rolodex brands. I had worked with and just like really leaned into those favors and I always say you know. It's funny because Levi's was one of the first sponsors of CREIGHTON cultivate which is like an incredible get. Yeah very cool brand and the head of PR. I basically pitched for ever and she was like I have like three thousand dollars and I was like I'll take it. You're the presenting like this was like early days. Angie like ran it on her credit card and I was like cool but like it was creating cultivate presented by Lebed is in every brand was like. Oh my God. What's Levi's do you know so I think it was? You know again. There's times where it's worth it to kind of take very little money to get that brand association especially as a newer newer brand so good. I'm sitting here like taking notes literally. Okay so why? Don't you tell us a little bit? About what creatine cultivate became for people who don't know and what it's doing for women what it's doing business entrepreneurs and all the things. Yeah totally so crank ultimatum. Online platform and offline events series for Women Looking Creighton. Cultivate the career of their dreams. And what that really means is we provide online content tools tips and tricks. You need to go out and succeed in the world. Whether you're a freelancer your small business owner your entrepreneurial in a corporate job looking more creative we provide amazing content that kind of leans into that narrative then we also have events and events are really our bread and butter Oregon. It's what I love to do. I think it's really fun. It kind of creates this offline community which I think is really important these days so we host over forty events a year where most well known you wash over you keep going but yeah we do events all over the country which is also something. That's very important to me. You don't just stay on the coast we do events in Dallas Atlanta Chicago. Miami of Seattle. You name it and those events range right like they're either specific small summits that tied to specific small business owners or beauty or whatever. It is larger conferences which are more like festivals and then also just really fun events that we do with brands all across the country so those events the goal is to go out and meet other amazing women. See what incredible things are doing and then also hear from women that you would otherwise maybe not have access to which I think is really important as well. I have a book called Work Party in the book. I talk a lot. About how like my parents are car dealers from Florida like they have no idea what I'm doing ever. They're like what is this business. Why are you adjust cow? But we don't understand and it's awesome because I knew generic not knowing a single person. I like hustled my way up the ladder but I also along the way realize a lot of business is driven by networks. It's driven by opportunity driven by access and a lot of people don't have those opportunities access and I was very lucky that I was able to build it on my own but my goal in creating cultivate is to give women this access that otherwise maybe wouldn't get to be able to grow and get that advice that they you know if during in Kansas City or wherever like we're like oh baffled go and raise money or like. Oh that's how I you know draft this contractor agreement. I want to be able to. You know kind of spread the wealth because the reality is like if I hadn't gotten not access to information and I had just stayed in Florida where I'm from and just try to do this on my own. There's no way I could have done for me. It's really about creating widespread knowledge sharing for women everywhere. It's one hundred percent true I think the dreams died in isolation and come together. You know. Success leaves clues but sometimes somebody knows something about an area that you would never have known because they've been busy working on that and you're working on something else together. We can build the engine while we fly the plane. It's it's so good and so true. Here's the thing. It's one thing to think that thought but then to be able to go and do it. That's a whole `nother thing and not only did you do it. You've done it so well and you have done exactly that you've helped. So many people find each other and advance their career and build their dreams. It's a movement. So what is the runway? Right that leads up to filling in event. Tell us a little bit about what you know about that. That people can start apply in their own business for sure. I mean when critical tweet started like I said it was a twenty five percent of fifty percent about one hundred. A three hundred thousand. It took five years to get there so it's really important to build up trust in value. All make sure that your customers are having a good experience like I am a psycho about good experience and especially early on when we were doing. We took so much attendee feedback into consideration early early on and we still do. We look at everything you know and again you have to start making decisions based on what the majority saying versus the minority in terms of like. Hey you know I feel like the days do long. Hey I feel like the short. Hey I didn't feel like it was worth my money. Whatever it is you have to look at all of this and say okay. How can we do better? How can we make appeals like the whitest common denominator and make sure that they're having a killer experiences like one of the things they say jokingly but I'm like even the worst possible day at Creighton? Cultivate which would never happen. But if you did you leave and you get a swag worth five hundred dollars for the easing the worst day and then you're like. I literally never have to buy Shampoo yet. So it's like there are hurts but it's like thinking through the full experience. I think it's so important from the arrival to lunch to this. Like to the bathroom like we try to think that everything obviously doing that at scale is much more challenging. Okay put a pin in that. Because I want to ask you something right now about that before we go forward which is if you had to just go from your gut and say what is the most essential thing that you think creates that really connected. Great customer experience. What matters most I would say thoughtfulness you know. I think were very thoughtful about everything that we do and we really try to think of every possible scenario. So you know whether it's like a little meet and greet surprise when you walk through the door whether it's like. Yeah you're in the bathroom line but we have someone like tree passing cool things like a cop. Yeah just thinking through. I think just being thoughtful about it and also not going quiet about it because I think a lot of brands like if there's a bad experience looks don't talk about it never happened. We're not like that like we're very much like we're sorry if something happened to her life working through it like a good example is like la conferences past weekend and it was seventy and sunny every single day leading up to the conflict. The day of the conference. It was zero chance of rain. It was seventy and sunny and then at two PM. There was a flash thunderstorm. Like what else but basically it was like. We were prepared. We were ready for it but like there was things that we didn't expect little like mud puddles that were forming in our teams throw down plywood making sure people can walk in like it's stocks as an attempt to be like there's muttered there's this or whatever but like. I think seeing the team jump in and be like we got this like holding golf umbrellas for people you know. I think that really goes a long way is just making the effort addressing any issues in like going from there. I just think it's really important. Yeah I love this this aspect of the thoughtfulness because everything that you just sort of ran through whether it was like meet-and-greet when you walk in and passing trays in the bathroom. It's really you want people to feel seeing like there's an emphasis on like. I want you to feel like I care about you. And what you could have said is a million other things you could have said this stage. The lighting the guest celebrity of it. And you're like no the person that we thought about them. That's huge yeah. I don't take taking someone's money lately like ever and and you know three hundred dollars or whatever ticket. Prices are for whatever events like? That's a lot of money to someone and so for me ask someone who is an entrepreneur who's been bootstrap the entire time. I understand that investment and I WANNA make sure that people are walking away feeling like they got value. They were thought they were seeing like. You said I think that's important. Yeah and you you totally deliver an overdeliver. You've learned so much about what gets in the way for people. You've talked to so many entrepreneurs and you are one. What do you see as the biggest hurdle people execution? I think you can have a brilliant idea. If you don't have the execution it'll never happen and I think that's what happens to so many people is like they're like. Oh here's my brilliant idea. Hire all these people to do it. But no one's GonNa care as much as I do. You have to be the one executing and I think that's what's so important. I think that's why Creighton cultivates been so successful is like I'm not like a CEO. That's like on vacation like motivating the team. I'm like doing work all the time. And I think that's what differentiates really successful entrepreneurs From people who were one time entrepreneurs? I think you have to be willing to do. The work doesn't mean you're going to do it the entire time but I think especially at the beginning. What breaks away from people who are have a good idea or a good brand or like paid a really? You know big branding agency. Decrease beautiful. Doesn't matter if you're not executing on your idea on your vision and being prepared to pivot and change in move that you'll never never be successful. I think that is so true and I just wrote it on the mighties. The paper three times execute. Good when you're looking at sort of like the fundamental building blocks of creating a lasting beautiful business. What would you tell someone like these things feel essential? What would you say are some of the basic tenants that using everyone could get a lot of mileage out of? Yeah I mean I think the biggest one is email lists like. I think everyone's like instagram. This that yeah. It's totally important but I think owning an email list that's really large and that you grow and that create the community. That's something you own like. I think that's hugely important and on the we've been focused on for a really long time. I think we have over six hundred thousand subscribers now and it was like. I don't get the things you say it's Insane. It's crazy and it's something that. I was just like insanely focused on the entire like I think. Email list is huge. I think your mission is so important you know I think if someone's like Oh what are you doing? You're like well. We do a little bit of that. We do a little bit of this. Sometimes it's like not only do. Yeah so cut and dry and you have to know you are and who you are and I think that's really really important that something like drill into our employees is like. Here's what we do. Here's why we do it. And here's how we show up like every single time and I think also you ought to know higher gonNA make money. You can either out the gate or long-term like you have to have a sense of. When do we start being profitable and I think that's a huge thing? That's happening right now that everyone's starting to seize like all these companies so much money being on the cover of everything magazine and then like completely imploding. Because they can't pay their employees. They can't whenever I mean. We work as a really good example of that but I think there has to be a of. You will make money how you will make money if you can't figure that out from beginning like have it in your sights then it's probably not a great business idea so much good stuff. Let's go email list so when it comes to email us. How do you keep that email us feeling fresh and engage? What's like one of your go-to things that you like to e mail your list within a month. Let's say that makes them continue to feel like you're there and it's relevant and it's fun. Yeah so we do a weekly newsletter. I think consistency is key every Friday. We show up in your inbox at eleven. Am great so I think of that is our top content. It's our events coming up and if any like you know kind of newsworthy things we have. I think that's really really important. We also segment and we have a podcast newsletter. So if you're like I don't care about that. All I care about is the podcast you get your podcast newsletter earlier. Like I don't care about your company at all. I just want to buy your products. Great Sweet I don't care I look like you don't WanNa be government so you don't want your EMU like its product it's podcasts. You're like WHOA. It's like every week in the newsletter that our top stories in need to know information and I think that's really important and then we also have a money moves newsletter. Which is all about financials. And then we have our classifieds which job listing than like classifieds newsletter was just like this thing that we sorta started because female owned businesses. Were like we want to tap into your community for jobs like Great Cool Bat. Newsletter had the ninety percent open rate. It is it's it's insane and it's just. I think you're a Unicorn I'm GONNA come check and see if you're real these are. These are not things it's insane. I'm like just go slow. Everyone is trying to look for the bigger better opportunity. It's amazing but anyway my God. Okay everything you're saying is amazing before you keep going. We're just can thank our sponsors when you visit your dream business.

That's honey book dot com slash dream. Job One thing that I think that people struggle with is you know you said that the very first time you didn't event was twenty people and you knew them all that eventually you started to bring in the whole world right so when you WANNA move in to people who don't know because maybe you want even more honest feedback and data on whether it's working or not and and you want to grow this and you want to be able to charge and you want to be able to. What would you say is the the first baby step to sort of broadening the community starting to go beyond your friends and Family? I mean I think friends and family are a good start right because if they have a good experience tell their friends and family about it and then it grows from there I mean I think we were really lucky in that we had a lot of word of mouth at the beginning and also when we had our speakers our speakers who have larger followings would post about being there and then that's how we kind of grew organically at the beginning and then from there we started getting you know people buying tickets that were not friends in that. We didn't know who they were and we do surveys. After every single crinkle debate we still do to get information back on like what worked. What didn't work and how it can be better at what we're doing. I also think now we just didn't exist back then but instagram advertising facebook advertising is a great way to grow community based on your visting list by targeting their friends and family It really kind of growing organically from there. Because you don't want to just be like okay. Cool we're targeting. Women Twenty to fifty like Joe like you want to find people that are like minded and like somehow connected to the people that you are connected with already to make sure that you're creating quality community overtime imperfect I get this question all the time and good friend of mine. I asked her this. I say people want to know the answer to this question and it's always so funny. How people think that there's an answer to this question. Which is what's the trick like. How do you break the Algorithm? How do you do the best post or the best funnel or the best facebook ad so that you grow your audience overnight? And I'm like always staring at them like. Is that a joke. You really think that and people really think that they really think that you have a trek. So can you tell us what your trick is? I mean in general just the master of all of those things and I love her so much but I think there really is no trick which is obviously like whatever I think the reality is like you need to have a very strong purpose of various strong sense of self in terms of your brand and you have to be consistent. So Day. One of your. We're going to be this. And then you're like spending all this money to get people to come to that and then they're like actually. We're going to be more like this. You're going to lose all those people So I think it just takes a while to build up to what you're looking to do and then being able to be really strategic and smart about the outcome of what you want those things to be so for instance we would never do something. We just want to grow our instagram. Following a ton of money growing our instrument falling like everything we do is immune students. You WanNa like target people who are friends of our friends who would want to also attend US abet. Then they go be event. You have a good experience. A sign up for the newsletter. It's three sixty kind of experience. But I think it's like you. You could a ton of money at anything if you're not delivering or providing a unique value prop at the end of the day. No one's GonNa who's actually and that's so good and you keep going back to like. It is the warm audience right. You don't just WanNa like blasted out to the world and I love this idea of be consistent like lean into it. All in commit the thing is I think that people think that there is some lucky. Hashtag like that. There is some way of growing something overnight. Have you experienced that? Is there anything that works that you've found whether it's a facebook ad or a blink blink or are you like no? It's like Chop Wood. Carry water show up consistently. I think it's a combination because they do think people who live in Greece online like particularly like influencers. But if you are all day commenting and liking on people's fotos specifically commenting grow your audience a hundred percent like you just have to be twenty. Four seven glued to your phone engaging engaging engaging lily art it's really timely and it's like costly if you want someone to do that for you because it has to be authentic and fuelling fence. I think like the Jenner coaches of the world. And there's a lot of other people that do this really well. Murray for like they gauge with their audience day in day out again hard to do at scale but I do think there is something to be said about like the grind of just like engagement. I think it actually does really work and I think it's just like facebook and instruments icing on the cake like I don't think it can be your entire strategy. I think it can work really well but I don't think it can be like okay quote. We're just going to buy up all of our followers and he doesn't work it's hollow What is it? It's like? I think that people think that there must be something that they only had it. It's like that secret elixir. And then they just press in these things and they type in this. Hashtag an overnight. I don't think it was. We would all be doing live exactly. You said it took five years to grow it into thousand person event. Yeah exactly grit. I'm here I'm like tell me okay. So he so now comes the meat and potatoes. Okay which is what you said is so true execution is everything and then nobody does it and the reason they don't do it. It's I don't think I'm good enough. It's what if fails it's someone else's already doing it. So how do you help women overcome all that imposter syndrome and self doubts that they actually start exactly? I always say start by starting. I think like the biggest thing is yes. There's probably someone out there doing it. Maybe during a better than you maybe with more money than you I mean if I looked around was like who else has a conference. Gwyneth paltrow cool like I'm never but it's so true like I'm like if I look around the world like well there if they have two hundred million in funding in like an alien love reactors how I've got this. What have you can't one of my friends Max. Mcquarry loved so much always says there's a reason why forces raised with blinders. And I think that's so important. It's like you have to just be focused on you and your business in what you want to be doing. And you can't just keep saying what if what is she doing. What if what is she doing? Because I think that's what will drive you into the ground and like so many people were like you know especially critical to be as all these other ones kind of popped up like. Well look at what they're doing. They're doing twenty thousand people through the door and I was like yeah. I have zero desire. I I want to create an intimate environment. I think that's what's really powerful about crane cultivate. And then I've watched those businesses fail over and over and over again and get shut down. If I took the invite the people who are very smart people very well-connected people vary in the mix people in just that okay. Yeah I'M GONNA go like my business wouldn't be here today so you have to bet on yourself. You have to keep your eye on the prize and you can't listen to anyone else in the reality of the situation is there will be people out there who are probably better than you and smarter than you and have more money than you but if you do it and you're smart and you're pleasure to work with which. I always say and people genuinely like working with you you will be successful and can I just say right. Now you have such magnetic energy you work so hard you're so passionate you're a fireball of enthusiasm. It's really good. Stop Jacqueline and I think that at the root of all of this is everything that you just said because our whole lives we've been telling ourselves were not as good as this one not a smart as that one not as pretty as this one not as capable and there's a little voice inside and it knows that that's not true and that wasn't the case you wouldn't be listening to this podcast right now and it's because you come here and you ask yourself. Why do I come here? What am I coming to this podcast for? It's like it's to be reminded that you need to put those blinders on and you need to go and you have something that the world needs and when you said that Jacqueline I just felt like in a way. That's the way I think you do. You're like a lightning rod for everyone to be like I am going in and I do have something and it is GonNa be what it is because look at all these women who she presents at this conference who they started just like me. What do you think is one of the through lines in all the other you know in your peers? Who were all successful in the people who've come to beyond the podcast people who have spoken at the event? Like what you see. Is the through line and successful women. I mean I really think being able to kind of put your ego aside. I think that's honestly the women I talked to. Even if they're like the most glamorous on every magazine whatever like the women that I get to hang out with that I have real talk conversations with about the reality of being founders. You know they put their ego aside and they just get it done and I think that's really important especially in such a world where everyone entrepreneurs of the new celebrities and it's like that's amazing and I think it's great because it sheds light on like women and businesses and things like that but the reality of being a founder. It's very hard. It's very isolating. It's difficult there's million challenges. There's even more challenges being a woman. I'm so there's even more challenges being a woman of color like there's so much difficulty that goes into this and I know a lot of times what's presented is like best case scenario the highlight reel etc and. I think that the women I know have been in the trenches. Done the work either. Come out on the other side. Now are making a ton of money but the stories like I'm most inspired by 'em just like this is insane but like you look at people like Jalen Kern who started it cosmetics. Who was just a news anchor who had ROSACEA who is like this product sucks and I wanNA make a better one. Solar Company for a billion dollars in like was working up her like hundred hour weeks up until the day. She sold that company. Like those women that you are like those of the stories. That are just so incredible to me that they've done it. They built it from the ground up. They had incredible exit or they failed. Whatever but they have like learned moved on and like run the company and then gone on to support other notch nerves. Like those are the women that I think like. We need to be looking to for that excitement and that inspiration. Because I think it's just so easy to get caught up in the whole like. Oh my God overnight success you know like the face looks the world words like I'm going on a billion dollar valuation created in a dorm room overnight and I think that's just not the reality and I think that's story needs to kind of dial a little bit because they think it's a disservice to entrepreneurs everywhere absolutely. I mean Angela. Duckworth was here and she talked about how they the number one indicator of success is going to be resilience and so to think that. You're not gonNA need the grit. I think that one of the things we're seeing especially as the generation continues to have more and more technology like we just want fast. Roi And if we don't get we think oh this is never gonna work. Let's move on. It's a failure or I'm a failure or this should have been and there's a lot of patience. Patience is not happening enough. What's your advice when you're gonNA hit the wall because there is going to be failure right? Let's just call part of the human experience not everything's GonNa work. You're going to test things and you're gonna be in Beta and what what do you do with that? Can you actually tell us one thing where you had to be resilient and get back up I mean yeah there's a billion But basically I mean. I think it's one that I talk about it. With my first company. I had a business partner and relaunched the company together. I mean we were in our early early twenty th for having a lot of fun and then basically the companies are making a lot of money and grew very fast and it was one of those things where we had a pretty gnarly business partner. Break up we were on the same page. We had a very flimsy operating agreement and it was a full on nightmare. Were kind of going through that and it was really intense lesson and I basically flu. I like so we had employees. I was like going through trying to explain what happened. I took over the company by myself. I called his era's like I think I'm GonNa shut the company down and get a job like I can't do this. It's so stressful. So stress stressful. Such a nightmare. It's like a divorce. It's an awful divorce if an awful divorce I lost friends. I lost a business partner and friend like you know all the things and so basically i. I flew to Portland my friend at the time Mussa. Who's an incredible marketer? He was at Nike. And I was like hey so I was like. I think you need to hire me at night. I'm going to be like head of marketing. I love you hire me. Let me tell you. Why don't you a company and I was like we'll yes but I'm going to this thing and it's so much okay. Let me ask you a question. Does your company make money and I was like yes. He's like okay. I'm not going to hire you because you are running your company and you're making money the moment you stop making money you can call me up and I'll hire you but you have your own thing and like it makes money. It works like keep going and I realized I was. He's right like I can't describe now I need to do so my own and soy ended up doing it on my own for four more years and then sold that company but it was very very challenging to get back up. Bs Confident tell all your clients what was happening. Get the team. Rallied around you again. Like it was not an easy couple years after that but it was it was like the biggest learning like I always say it was like there was basically my business that I went through and had to teach myself so much things that she was really like owning. An you know it was great and long-term looking back you know hindsight's twenty twenty but I think it was an incredible estimate. I don't think I would be the entrepreneur today if that didn't happen to me so I think that you know every nightmare you're in right now you're like. Oh my God like this is Never GonNa end at this is it is it. It's not like you know. Failure is just a series of data points. And you use them you learn from them and so with your podcast which is awesome. You guys. Can you not tell that you're gonNA love her. Podcast yes you are first of all. How do you do all these things? How did you also make a podcast come together? And why was it so important to you to do a podcast? Yeah so the PODCAST. Work Party is kind of a continuation of the book so I read the book where credit couple of years ago telling my story about telling the story of other female trainers while their lessons. All the things that kind of go along with at and really came back down to the fact that we have access to all these incredible women and speakers in an they wanNA share their stories. I think at the events. It's incredible because we're able to do that but I wanted to. Dive deeper into topics that you know. Don't often get talked about so whether it's again failure raising money. The realities of running a company work like balance. Like the things that you know on everything we do. It like be authentic like no. Let's have a real conversation about the realities of being a female founder the realities of running a company And the first episode ever worked pretty. I think really set the tone which was behind my lawyer on. He was talking about trademark. Getting everything in order to start a business and then we talked to Bobby Brown. Basically launched for cosmetics line as a makeup artist within three years. I think sold it for a ton of money stayed on board of that company for fifteen twenty years after the fact now is a new entrepreneur in really just talking to her about that entire experience. What she's learned coming up the other end of it. I think you know it's just this information and podcasters a great. I'm sure you know this is like these things I mean for you and I when we were starting out like this didn't exist like we didn't have the information so I think it's just important to have his open honest conversations giving advice that's real not just gloss over everything and get access to women and love it and we have Bobby Brown was one of the I had on this show too. She just let us say Lauder but what I love about. What you just said is some of the things that you cover. We don't cover that stuff at all and it's cool to have all those other like nitty gritty pieces in addition to all the emotional mental health. Like how we get through it all I just love it i. I'm I'm such a fan of your show and you just really fun fun to listen to one thing. I WanNa ask you before we sum up is when we're talking about marketing. What is marketing mean to you? I mean. I love marketing so much. I feel like it's been such a line in my entire career but I think marketing at the end of the day is just emotional human connection however you need a million different things but at the end of the day. You're telling a story your story to another human being and that's just the way I approach efforts being in business is like there's a human being at the other end of all of this. That's going through. Something needs something. Want something and like you're either providing providing value or directing them to the right place to go get that and I think that's why we wanted to create. Debate is tell a story in a human way. That's not just about selling products. Not just about selling tickets but in a way that provides value. I just think it's such a mic. Drop God I love it all and give me one example so that people can actually see how this plays out. Give me an example of the kind of thing you would post the kind of thing that you would email the kind of question you would ask. One example I think at the end of the day is what does success mean to you and I think that's so important for when you're talking to a brand when you're talking to a potential customer. What is the endgame like what what for you feels like success and I think that's so important because if someone's like I just WanNa learn about raising money then you know what to give them like. What does success mean to you as a brand like? I just want new customers. I know what I need to do to get you there like I always ask that question at the top of any conversation that I have is. What does success look like for you? It's like me going out and selling my company. Four hundred million dollars or me getting my business one hundred thousand dollars a year two totally different needs and wants and I think just setting it up that way will help you from beating around the Bush for a very long time. I love it because what you're saying goes back to the empathy piece. It's like asking your people. What's your pain point. And it's all about being successful. You're like what does success mean to you and you can then also let go of the people that you can't serve which badly all if you want to do. Whatever it is fill in the blank. That's not you you can be like. I don't think I can serve you so I'll just keep leaning into the people who I really can serve and that's exactly right and it's so true because I think even this to both creighton cultivate that like are like oh I went. But I'm at this level and they don't do this and we're never that's totally fine. You're not going to be for everyone but knowing what you can do for the people that want to show up for you is important so good. Tell us where we can find you.

This is would house mazda. Dr jack gable. Creighton university professor of astrophysics jack. Good morning. good morning gary. Hey it's great having you bet. I really appreciate you taking the time. This is a big deal and it looks like we're going to have clear enough sky's the great conjunction happening this evening. Where jupiter and saturn to our. I look like they're lined up right. That's exactly right so the two planets will be that the closest they've been as viewed from here on earth and the sky and over four hundred years since the time galileo and it'll actually be the closest they've been visible at nighttime From here eight hundred years. So dating. back to the middle ages What is the scholarship on on. What the The star in the east might have been Back at the time of jesus's birth. Yeah that's a good question so You know there's a lot of interest in in the great conjunction astronomically Just because it's such a rare event. I think anytime that that people are able to to witness and be a part of something that that only happens. Every hundreds of years is is a big deal. Ju just to be a part of that. But the fact. This is coincides with the christmas season. I think is capturing a lot of people's attention as well And there have been quite a few studies that have have tried to trace back what what might have been the bright object in the sky. Two thousand years ago One thing that that were pretty sure of is that it wasn't this particular conjunction that it is. It wasn't saturn and jupiter pairing very close to each other in the sky but it might have been another conjunction so I think one thing that's fascinating is that we're we understand the the motions in the positions of the objects in the sky. Well enough that we can trace back that long ago and some scholars have said that it might be a conjunction of venus and and saturn. Those two planets were particularly close around that time and then there have been some more exotic types of phenomena there have been suggested For example some some people have suggested it might be supernova which is when a massive star explodes and appears in the sky for for a short little bit. Better time right jack gable from creighton university astrophysics professor. Whether it's this morning so what's our best. Play this evening jacket. We want to see this. You bet so the great thing about this if you don't need any special equipment. You don't need a telescope to see this Jupiter is the brightest objects in the night. Time sky right now and saturn is is quite bright as well so what you do need to know though is where to look and the timing of it because it won't be visible for long so if you go out tonight and like you said it. Looks like we're gonna have clear skies And look towards the southwest fairly low near the horizon. you'll see very obvious Bright red star like object. That's jupiter and just You know barely distinguishable from if at all saturn. We'll be right next to it. So you wanna go out After the skies darken somewhat. So maybe about an hour after sunset. But don't wait too long because The planet's will set below the horizon by about seven. Thirty okay so we'll look like one body or two that great question so There's actually some debate about that In the Strana me community. So the the truth is that we're not exactly sure there are a lot of variables here and It might be that some people see it as two very very close bright objects but other people depending on their observing conditions or their eyesight might actually see it as one merged bright object. It's one of those things that we're going to just have to wait. Wait and see or if you have a few whiskey sours you might see three or four of them. You know you're never and then. I saw this item. Jack that The ursa meteor shower happens tonight to later at about midnight. I guess or in a wee hours. Is that worth staying up for. Yeah so the Anytime you can Stay up and be up for a meteor shower. It's certainly a something that's worth worth trying to see I would say though that there are meteor showers throughout the year there. Are you know ten ten or so showers that that you can expect to see meteors and this is something that you know. It's been eight hundred years since an opportunity to see so. If you get out and see anything it would definitely be the planet's very good very good. That's pretty much. What's amazing to me You'll appreciate this because it's your field I don't think most of us humans can appreciate the enormity of these planets how many hundreds of thousands or millions of miles away they are and still we can see him ads. Incredible absolutely and something. That's that's really fascinating about this. I think is that here. Are these two incredibly bright objects that he say hundreds of millions of miles away and Even though they'll appear to be essentially merged as one point from our vantage point here on earth they're still hundreds of millions of miles away from each other. It's just you know an alignment of us with the planets that makes us so. It was really cool. Jack thanks much. I appreciate your time. Pleasure thanks for having me.

Hope you enjoy here we go. Hey there it's scary. Parachutes tuesday march twenty two thousand and twenty one. Welcome back to the cbs sports. I own college basketball podcast where we sometimes discuss camel fighting dodo birds an leaky black matt norlander with me and when i say it's tuesday me. It's technically tuesday. But it's essentially late monday night. It's twelve zero five. Am eastern on cbs. sports network. Day norlander been on. Cbs sports hq all day. Now that we're done in all of monday's gains have been completed. We are here to talk through the fourth day of the two thousand twenty one. Ncwa tournament because the sweet sixteen is now set of the final sixteen teams in the bracket. We have three number. One seat gonzaga michigan to number two seats alabama. Houston one number. Three seat arkansas. One number four florida state to number five seats creighton and villanova one number six seed. Usc one number seven seed oregon one number eight seed loyola chicago to number eleven seed syracuse and ucla. One number twelve seed oregon state one number fifteen seed oral roberts so the average seed of the sixteen sweet sixty teams is five. Point eight eight. That's a new record for the highest average seat a sweet sixteen teams in. Nc double a. tournament. History the previous record if you care five point five. Six seven nineteen eighty-six dead-leg upsets in surprises have dominated the first two rounds of the two thousand twenty one incident tournament. Is that the story heading into the sweet sixteen. The upsets that highlighted. How we got here or is it. The pac twelve has four sweet sixteen teams or that. The big ten only has one sweet sixteen team or is a combination of all three. I won't go. I won't do cop out and do combination of all three. I think actually the pac twelve. I got thoughts on everything you just laid out there. gp And good morning to you Once again I think the pac twelve is probably because it's the first time trivia time okay. I got a few nuggets for this. Podcast i'm trying. Sprinkle in pac twelve has been to the sweet sixteen with four representatives three times prior. I'm not gonna ask you for all the years. I'm just gonna ask you to try and guess as close as you can. The most recent time the pac twelve conference we know to be the pac twelve. That might be me tipping. My hand was the last time that had four in the sixteen prior to this year because obviously two thousand thirteen it is two thousand and one. It was not even the pac twelve then. It was the pac. Ten when it sent arizona stanford usc and uc l. a. Because the pack twelve which is just been tremendous on the whole Has has done what is done here. I think that is the story. Although i don't and maybe it's because the big ten's been bad and nobody had the big ten sending wanting the sweet sixteen. Nobody not any human not in the insect now any animal no conscious being in our known universe thought that only one team from that league at a nine was making the sweet sixteen. It feels like there's more emphasis on conference performance in this tournament. And i guess that's connected to the upsets we've had. I've also picked up on a little bit of a pac twelve fans if you wanna if you wanna be like. Sec football fan and ride your conference find. This has never been a thing in college basketball. This idea that you like you puff out your chest for how your league performance in the tournament. That's just never been a thing. I'm feeling it's kind of a thing. This year agree or disagree. I mean i have seen people pointing out the conference. This conference is doing well in. This conference isn't doing well. But i i don't think that's unique to the season. I mean maybe we just see different ways. But i feel like every year. We have a conversation about what conferences doing. Well competition doing. Well i just feel like there's more attention to it this year than most years and i think it's because the pack twelve has been so abnormally. Good here in the big twelve has been fairly bad and the in the big ten and the big twelve but you know the two top conferences in the country. There's no way to spin it right. I mean they they've they've underperformed and because of that. I feel like there's been more emphasis on that's fine. I don't know if the incidents tournament is. Is you know the outhouse true arbiter. It's got a lot of. It's got a lot of attention on it and i get all that. But here's here's where those stand. The big twelve has a seven six record. Sending one team in the big ten has a What seven seven and eight mark to this point. So it's it's it's underperformed. Win percentage wise biggies has been better as foreign two in the tournament right now. Sec's better at six four. The tournament in the pac twelve has been has been outstanding. I don't get caught up on the record so much as like the big ten. Had if you want to identify why the big ten has been wildly disappointing. Care about the record because sometimes you can get a whole bunch of teams in. But they're all seated in ways they're not supposed to get to the sweet sixteen so like how disappointing is it. Really the flip side of that is what happened with the big ten. They had five teams with top four seeds by definition five teams. That are supposed to be in. The sweet sixteen michigan got a one-seat illinois. Got a one seat. I got to get a to got a four and only one of those. Five teams michigan actually advanced to the sweet sixteen. That is horrendous. I mean there's there's no way to spin the only the only question if you want to have a debate is you know. Does this mean the victim was overrated or does this mean the big ten underperformed in a single elimination tournament like i. I'd be happy to have that debate. Maybe not at one in the morning but at some point. But that's the only question was the league overrated or did it simply underperforming in a single elimination tournament. But there's no way to spin this as anything other than absolutely horrific you are. You are right and if you want to say it was a little bit of overrating of the big ten. I would agree but to me. It's more underperforming in the tournament. And thank goodness that michigan got out against lsu because that was probably the best watch on on sunday overall as for what you asked at the top with just you know the average seed being five point. Eight eight in the In the sweet sixteen haya some for all for all of us at ninety. Four breaking the record for eighty six You know that has been a lot. We've had a lot of noise with it as well. There have been seven teams that have won in the tournament this year. That were seven points or more as an underdog outright on the money line. That is one win shy. And by the way if you're like. Usc was a favourite against kansas. So that doesn't count like you might wanna that it was a six three. That's not how that that line closed. So we are one game shy of matching the all time record perish for the tournament the all time record for teams seven points or more as a dog winning on the money line is eight and we ha- we still have a sweet sixteen a final four in the national championship game to go. That record of eight was set in nineteen ninety eight so we've had a ton of noise and to me it's it's it's a blend of both here perish like look around and we'll we'll preview the sweet sixteen in general just as broad commentary. Here you know we do have. We got three one's a pair of shoes. A really compelling three. We've got villanova. That's one a couple of national championship. Loyal and oregon have been to the final four in the past half decade. Ucla has more national championships than any program in the sport there so i guess i felt like there was a little bit of like you know so many upsets. This isn't gonna make for an absolutely urgent sweet sixteen elite second weekend. I wouldn't agree with that. We have familiar teams here. Gonzaga florida state michigan villanova oregon syracuse. Baylor all of those schools have at least two sweet sixty at least two sweet sixteen appearances since two thousand and fourteen. And you've got the familiarity factor loyal in general. So i kind of think this was a blend of of the best of both worlds here. The only thing we didn't get was sunday was lacking drama. And we didn't. We had a few games that were close but ugly at the end parish. We did not have to three or four games. Where teams traded a couple of huge buckets in the final twenty. Five seconds and there were these amazing endings. We have not had that yet. I hope we make up for that next weekend. Yeah i mentioned the big ten had five teams with top four seeds. Only one made the sweet sixteen. The pac twelve is like just the opposite the pac twelve as four sweet sixteen teams and they are uc a six seed oregon. A seven seed ucla. An eleven seed oregon state a twelve seed for you had five big ten teams that were supposed to get to the sweet sixteen. Only one got there. None of these pac twelve teams. Were supposed to get to the sweet sixteen. Four of them got there. That's incredible. the overshot. Their seed expectation. And yeah it is and credit to And credit to the pac twelve. I mean dan allman has been ridiculously consistent in doing this. And i felt oregon was mostly fairly seated You know maybe one line better. I don't need to get into all that. But i then beating iowa wasn't a stunner to me When you look at what. These teams have like oregon state. We talked about it on the pro on the previous podcast. They are the aberration Mick cronin and his domination as the greatest coach ucla history. I'm not shocked. Evan mobile three nba and usc has shown really high ceilings here. I'm not stunned. Oregon with dana altman and their relentless attack of wings wings wings and given the how they landed the bracket. I'm not shocked. Now they over perform their seed but It's also i tall this passion that this is all happening. I saw stu mandel tweet this out And i completely agree with that. He's like of course the one tournament where it's in a central location. None of these teams are actually playing on the west coast like the west coast. Teams are coming through majorly and They can't even fans in the building but credit to them and now we wait and see if they can make more noise. Where you know. We'll have guarantee to have at least one pack. Twelve team in the elite eight because of the trojans index facing off in the sweet sixteen We'll see if anyone else can break through and potentially to final four. Which is you know. It's not a regularity for that conference by any means oregon being the most recent one and they just don't put teams into it that far but they got the best chance of any. 'cause i got twenty five percent of the field that rates i did not spend any time on the selection sunday pockets screaming about oregon being under seated. I spend all my time on loyalist chicago but you could go back and check. During the regular season there was a point where you and i were talking and i predicted that oregon would be under seated. Because the record of the metrics wouldn't match the actual team they often was taking into the bracket top. Five scorers combined twenty games in the regular season. They didn't get and they're not still not fully healthy. Volley dante is out for the year. But there i mean this is the team. They've had for a little while now and they're mostly healthy and this team was always better than what its record was going to suggest. Even what it's resume was going to suggest christie arte looks terrific In you know dana altman has a track record for doing stuff like this. And don't forget. I got a buddy one of my close friends who married a girl from iowa so like he's a he's he's now by extension and an iowa fan and he was so mad. You know early on sunday because he was like Is trash oregon team. And i'm like the outright pac champions toll forget that this tragedy oregon. There are seven seat. They were the outright. Pac twelve champions. Now they've got most of their roster healthy and you know we'll get into this later in the week when we actually preview the sweet sixteen. But you know you watch that team play against iowa. On sunday it looked like a team. That could maybe get up and down the court with with gonzaga. I pick against him but they look. They look capable of playing with them. I guess is what i wear a. I walked away from that game. Yeah no i agree with you That was by the way that was i was. I cannot a second round man there. One eleven in the second round since nineteen eighty nine. They're like our new arkansas basically But no good. On good. On oregon good on uc in the sweet sixteen for the first time since two thousand seven And some Some weird qismat here enfield. This is the second sweet sixteen of his career. The first one of course dunk city twenty thirteen which is the only other time that there've been a fifteen that sweet sixteen in. It's happening this year on the other side of the bracket and i. I'm pretty sure it was in the same. Exact part of the bracket when dunk city came up. They kind of worm their way up from the top right corner. That's what all roberts's doing and so as we as we talk here Pac twelve with four big east. Sec acc with a pair of peace and then oral roberts representing the summit league out of the fourth place spot by the way the missouri valley west coast conference a big twelve and big ten. All have one team a piece in the sweet sixteen. so let's talk brackets. How many sweet sixteen teams in my bracket or still alive. What about norlander. We're going to get into that next but first let me make sure you know how crucial it is that you download the cbs sports app. These instinct tournament games. There are multiple channels. He can get confusing but it doesn't have to be. If you've got the cbs sports app you can get it on your connected tv or phone and when you do you'll see every tournament game available to watch whether it's on cbs. Or march madness live. The app is a gateway to all of the action so go download the cbs sports app. Now to make sure you never miss a minute of the ncaa tournament. Dead-leg how many sweet sixteen teams in your original bracket are still alive trivia time. Just take a guess must seven. I'm at a. And i'm gonna take a guess on you. And i'm gonna say i'm gonna say you got ten eight eight. We each have eight left. I was convinced you were definitely had. I'm at by the way. I brought it up on my phone here. In our bracket games bull sheriff's everyone that joined by the way. We're just shy of a thousand. You guys are awesome. We'll blow past that number next year. I'm three hundred and fifty third in our bracket games pool Credit to everyone that's ahead of me The ones i got real quick gonzaga vs creighton. Usc versus kansas. And as i said on. hq might bracket is horrendous. It is a disgrace. But the one that i had confidence on met kansas. It was going to roll past. The jayhawks and i didn't expect by far the worst loss in kansas history and then simply tournament But that's what it got in the in the in the east. I only have florida state. I'm in trouble there. Otherwise florida state. I think i might have said this last night. It's the trendiest foresee to make the elite. I think i've ever seen in my entire life. So i've got them. I'm still in good shape the other side in the mid west. I got problems. I only got houston but i know a lot of people got problems in that region and then i have baylor and i have arkansas in the top right. Yeah the ones i have. Left are concetta. Michigan florida state alabama. Baylor arkansas oh no oh no. I think i've only got seven. Am i think. I've only got seven. Oh no this is devastating news. I had oklahoma. I didn't stretch out. Oklahoma state properly look at u. S you the other. Osu it got ya so. I've got houston arkansas. Baylor gonzaga michigan florida state. Alabama only got seven. Oh boo but you do have your national champion. Pick still alive. Which is more than i can say for myself because i had to annoy and you have been writing the driving gonzaga bus all season long and they are looking just fine. Yes so it's seven of the sweet sixteen teams i have in my original bracket but how about this six of my eight elite eight teams are still alive. Six eighty eighty three of my four final. Four teams are still alive and yes. My national champion is still alive. By the way eight teams in the my final top twenty five and one is better than my bracket eight teams in the top sixteen and my final top twenty five and one or actually in the sweet sixteen number one gonzaga number three baylor number four michigan were five alabama number eight. Houston number nine arkansas number. Fourteen florida state in number fifteen loyalist chicago and eleven of the actual sweet. Sixteen teams are in the top twenty three of my final top twenty five and one other number eighteen villanova number nineteen creighton number. Twenty three usc. So that's not bad. Certainly better than my bracket i look. Check the bracket game. Just now. i'm four hundred fifteen. I'm four hundred and fifteen four fifteen. I'm three fifty three. I still don't have my pizza by the way it's almost it's a great attitude ordering it to you man. It'll be there. it's been a week. we're in the middle of a pandemic. we're the mental pandemic had quarter had to order pandemic.

He's like is this gonna be even be edible by the time it arrives. I said. I don't even know i'm disappointed. I've got six hundred. Eight elite eight teams still alive by the way scott drew offered to pay for the pizzas because he feels responsible lost. It kids told him he didn't have to do this. Correct that's correct.

Were decided by double digits. Here's the rundown michigan beat. Lsu by eight. That was the only close game elsewhere. Creighton beat ohio. By fourteen oregon. Beat iowa by fifteen gonzaga beat oklahoma by sixteen florida state be colorado by eighteen alabama maryland by nineteen. Ucla beat abilene christian by twenty ucla. Usc ba- kansas by thirty four points. Good lord and in that alabama maryland game the crimson tide finished sixteen of thirty three from three so close dead leg. I nearly nailed the seventeen. Thirty four prediction just amazing. I have a snarky comments. All i have is shock. Aw in praise. Because i was half locked in on that game because alabama just started going nuts but then once you know once i hear you know alabama's thirteen three pointer. I'm like okay. And then. I brought the box going at that point. I think they were hitting like fifty four percent clip. I'm like this might actually start something. And then lo and behold they were won miss away from proving you right in less than twenty four hours after you drop that they finish. They finished sixteenth thirty three. So like and there was. I forget who it was. But he had open three in the final minute and didn't take it and if he takes it and makes it it actually lands on seventeen of thirty four. Like i'm in my hotel room trying to pack up because i'm flying home in the morning and i'm trying to prep for this podcast and i'm screaming at the tv shoot to. Gd ball shoot the ball. Shoot the pa. I wanted him to launch so bad. I wanted that seventeen to thirty four sixteen thirty three. That's pretty close. It's amazing it really is and and to everyone that tweeted at us. Yeah that's the other thing is. I was having fun overwhelming. Every every three minutes somebody was tweeting me about it A gps at seventy thirty four. Gp something like you know. Two minutes into the second-half it was Just just amazing stuff there. It really really is Congrats to alabama. We can start there. Just don't have much to say they. They they easily. you know. See to maryland. Alabama got it got done when it needs to get done so it. It advances in moves on there. And this is exactly why. I've been saying for months that one of the most dangerous teams in the country as it pertains to you know knocking off a baylor or a gonzaga. They are most of these teams even in the sweet sixteen like even if they play. Well they're not good enough to be gonzaga unless gonzaga just doesn't show up. Alabama is one of the few teams in the bracket that even if zag plays well alabama could beat them. And it's because of what we saw against maryland like they're just gonna watch thirty three threes and make sixteen of them even. If you've got big problems we given the way that they guard. They're gonna guard you in theory. They wanna defensive teams in america and they're gonna launch thirty three's and at the number. He actually hits thirty three and they make sixteen them then. It doesn't matter how awesome you've been all season you run into that. You've you've got some issues and so this is why i labeled them a long time ago. A real threat to win the national title or at least a real threat to knock somebody like gonzaga out of national title contention because they are capable of having that game. They're committed to the style they're capable having the game. They won't have it every game. They didn't have it last game. They probably won't have a next game but if they have that game the game they had against maryland if they have it in the final four or if they get to the title game and they have that game which they're capable of that's how they can be national champions alabama's in its first sweet sixteen since two thousand four. That's also the only year. Alabama has made the elite eight on the other side of that part of the region Ucla didn't have any issue with christian whatsoever. Probably the most you know it was. It was a day of blow blowouts here. That was just a complete. It was a non game from like you know ten minutes to go in the first half throughout the rest of it. But i mean i do say you know and mick cronin. His winning percentage in the tournament. Ucla's head coach. John wooden shame three know undefeated fraternity trivia time. Who's won more games in the two thousand twenty one incidental a tournament than anybody else. So far you mick cronin to the tournament. Nobody has done that to this. And by the way. John wooden six losses in the tournament. As ucla's coach mick cronin zero. Tell me about the time. John wooden won three games to get to the sweet sixteen. I don't think you got that story. I don't i give you that story. There's no there's no shot. I don't have. This wouldn't never had to win three games to get to a sweet sixteen. He was handed. These things did not happen. You got any leftover thoughts on ucla blown away abilene christian. They did bowl them away. Mick cronin is in the sweet sixteen for the first time since two thousand twelve. It's kind of wild. Cincinnati fans got. Want to say tired. It's not like they pushed him out. The way memphis push josh passed around but like they were a little bored with macron always making the tournament but never getting you know to the second weekend or rarely getting to the second weekend now fast forward in the first ncaa tournament that's been played since he left. Cincinnati mick cronin is in the sweet sixteen and since is coming off a twelve and eleven season and half the teams in the transfer portal. That's wild stark stark stock stuff. Yeah no absolutely Florida state runs away from colorado We'd be remiss not to mention the obvious. Is the biggest news story in the country record. This podcast A horrific horrific mass shooting that left ten people including police officer so as colorado played. Plates game There was a devastating story. Playing out. And i guess the team and everyone learns before they were to play Our thoughts and prayers and condolences and everything are sent to anyone and everyone connected to that in that community. is is a true just horrific horrific needless tragedy and Wanted to be sure to bring that up. Colorado's loss mckinley. Right had some good thoughts in after the after the loss on the game. Zoom media availability. Just you know offering up the proper perspective at colorado coach tad boyle with all of that florida state wins hamilton in the in the process gets to get to the sweet sixteen for the third consecutive tournament But just am that that's just i. It infuriates me that we still have. We still have happened in our country and that that's just what we had to address on the podcast that happening hours before the university was playing In a in a high profile tournament game just you know. It was a very dark cloud over the day today. It's it's obviously horrific and awful and heartbreaking. This is something that has been a problem in our country for far too long and something that happens far too often and hopefully one day will elect leaders. Who will actually try to do something about it till then this is the country. We live in florida. State's gonna play michigan. Lsu was a competitive but frustrating. Watch because i felt like the officiating crew was getting in his own way way too often. M missing calls garbage. Just getting guys in the foul trouble on calls that i just didn't think we're michigan desert to win. It was the better team in the right team won But that was a pretty good game that could have been a great game If not for just some some frustrating calls there. They they sent on h. q. And i went on late on monday. I don't have the number in front of me but apparently michigan is one more. Ncaa tournament games than any team. Since two thousand thirteen part of that makes sense because twenty thirteen and made the final four. I made another trip to the title game underlying later but congrats to to michigan on moving on it was a very trendy you know upset pick in the second round and not just you know from a point spread perspective. I'm talking like brackets out. Make your picks i had. Lsu over michigan. I was wrong. I have to. I have to certainly own that. Lsu put up a good fight cameron thomas. He's he's just walking. Bucket gotta figure. He's a one in donor and is moving along but michigan moves on and doing so. It may give us. We'll preview the games. More exclusively next week michigan. Fsu best sweet sixteen matchup. We've got a few really really good. But that one is is particularly tasty and congrats to michigan for moving on and in the process of saving the big. Ten's hide and making sure that we had three ones that got into the regional semifinals. Yeah michigan as a team again. Thank you went. You know the fifty forty eighty above fifty percent from the field above forty percent from three I believe just a little above eighty percent from the free throw line so just a strong effort. In the absence of isaiah livers. You know They were the ones that most people. If you're trying to not pick a one c that's where you went and because of the loss of isaiah levers but but so far so good They are in the sweet sixteen under juwan howard for the first time Feel like we need to make note that you gonzaga team won again. No problem now. Twenty-eight no twenty-seven double digit wins. They won twenty five straight by double digits. you know. It was interesting for a little while but it became pretty clear at some point that oklahoma just wasn't going to be able to keep up couldn't score enough. Yeah they gave but they did. They came out with a co with some really good offense early. It interesting early. And i thought oklahoma gave him about as good a game as you could possibly give gonzaga. It's the twenty fifth straight game. That gonzaga has won by at least ten points twenty five in a row and they are now in the sweet sixteen. Hello for the six straight. Ncaa tournament here are the other teams that have ever done that. Gonzaga this year. Ucla did for six years from seventy five to eighty. Duke did it twice and went seven times in a row from eighty six to ninety two and then it went nine times in a row from ninety eight to six the all time record. I just don't i don't think this gets broken. This is this is. This is an underappreciated stat. Thirteen straight up tournaments north carolina from eighty one. Ninety three sweet sixteen that is a joke parish. Thirteen straight tournaments. And you make the sweet sixteen. I don't think that's ever getting broken. That's a that's a joke of stat so gonzaga's in the club of six straight Regional semifinal appearances and they move along with these like you know if there's a program that is set up to break it it would be saga. It would be but you still. I mean you got to be top three seed each year and hope you don't get pulled you know it's just. It's not that they couldn't do it. But i mean making thirteenth returns period is something that only you know what doesn't programs have done and in their In their history so Just thought that was certainly worth noting there in that region. Y'all said creighton. Win against ohio jason in that story It was a two and a few will play valiantly create moves along and it has been able to rebound after a right just embarrassing performance in the beach championship game. Creighton is in the sweet sixteen technically for the first time since nineteen seventy four. How many teams have made it since last sunday did i'm just gonna guess and say it's one hundred and forty seven but there there and it's technically the first time that they've done it and needed to win to get in the sweet sixteen. When they went and seventy four they were already in the grouping that put them into that round. If you will. They didn't have to win to be one of the final sixteen teams. So that's something that's relatively surprising but good on the blue jays for getting it done. That's an intriguing. Sweet sixteen matchup. I haven't looked at the lines. I'm sure they're out parish But my blind guess. We'll be gonzaga michigan twelve and a half versus creighton They can score with gonzaga similar to how oklahoma can kinda score with gonzaga. But i don't expect to to competitive game. Yeah gonzaga would be a heavy favourite. The kim palm projection is eighty six seventy four. So gonzaga is going to be favored by double digits in its sweet. Sixteen game speaks to the strength of zags. But we've been talking about that all sees usc. Kansas and oregon iowa were the only two games from monday keep almost saying sunday parish. My calendars all whacked out But i'll start with oregon beating iowa way that did Impressively and and moving along and we talked about a little bit off the top there. But i i'm fascinated to see what they're gonna do in that matchup next week for me. The more more of its own iowa. I mentioned that they haven't gotten out of the second round all but one year in the past What thirty two. Years and for luca garza. He goes for thirty six and nine in his final college game. And i wasn't surprised by his numbers when i talked on the pre-game on hq. I said i guarantee you guys getting at least twenty five and ten. He didn't get danny got nine. They didn't oregon doesn't have the size of people who've guards and dana altman was more than okay to say. Let look has and we'll just shut everyone else down. We'll we'll do it. We need to do now. They were abnormally good from three point. Range was oregon and that helped him. But for iowa sure impart reflective of of the big ten This was the exact kind of thing where we talked in. The preseason inept certain points during the season About their defense. They were better as of late. And it's some of its some of it. Honestly is some luck with the way that oregon was shooting from beyond the arc. I mean eleven out of twenty five and it felt like at one point. They made like seven out of eight three pointers to just say sia to the hawk there. So it's disappointing. End for that program for luca garza. He said afterward that he's going to this going to haunt him the rest of his life and i really hope that's not the case. Obviously these players and coaches understand it can be very emotional after These devastating losses. I would hope a few months from now indefinitely a few years from now for the rest of his life. Luca garza can look back on You know being the best player in the history of this program and bringing it to a level of national relevance that it hadn't had an a very long time before he got there and while there was disappointment in not making a second weekend or final. Four you know in the eyes of plenty. He was the best player in college basketball. The season and what he did. Big picture for the program Certainly will resonate for a very very long time. Even if they won't be able to hang a banner cover hawkeye next to his retired number. Yeah i mean it. I'm sure it stinks. He came back to try to be the guy in part to be the guy who could take iowa to its first final four since one thousand nine hundred eighty and he accomplished most of his goals but he didn't accomplish that one and to have it end in a blowout. I'm sure is frustrating and disappointing in in in you know i can understand why today he thought it would haunt him forever but eventually he will you know. Did you know that they'll be some distance between the hurt of that moment. And where he is at in his life and he'll look back on his four years at iowa. And i would assume i would. I'm almost certain. Look back on them. Fondly i mean he's a sub one hundred recruit coming out of high school who went on to be the time leading score at iowa who was a consensus first team all american in his junior and senior year and who. I think we haven't voted on this yet. But i think he's still probably the national player of the year. Don't quote me on that. Don't hold me to it but you know we'll see what happens over the next week. But i think luka garza's probably going to be most people's national player of the year he was one media outlets national player of the year last year so he can accurately call himself a two time national player of the year probably You know his his numbers gonna hang in that in that building that is that is way more than he could ever reasonably. Imagine so i know it hurts and it hurts to go out like this but that that young man had an incredible for your college basketball career That said this is the way. I always said iowa season would end. I didn't necessarily think it would be in the round of thirty two. But i said they're gonna lose a game. Eight hundred eighty six now. It was ninety five eighty but my point was the same. They don't garden putting up enough resistance to to win enough games in the in this sensitively tournament to to actually. Do you know to win a national championship. I've never spoken absolutes and said there's no way but i certainly explained a million times. This is the way this is going to go. Oregon shop fifty fifty six percent from the field forty four percent from and lucas teammates. Didn't help him at all. You know. Luca was fourteen of twenty from the field. Thirty six nine three or four from three. His teammates were five of twenty from three. Like the trick to iowa trying to outscore. You isn't just luca getting thirty six. It's the shooter's he's surrounded with knocking down shots. Normally they do it this time. They didn't and now iowa's season is over. And there's one thing that i noticed And we can get out of here after this unless you got something house but you know these seniors all of whom are eligible to come back. I haven't heard one as coming back. Like they all talk like they're gonna get garza was like. I didn't want my curtains in like this. Now he's going to be drafted probably so that makes sense but even like austin reeves that oklahoma was like you know my. Yeah this is it. I didn't want it to end like this when i look back. I haven't really heard anybody of relevance in suggesting that they're coming back to school. Which is i've been wondering about that. How many of these guys are really going to come back to school. I was talking about it with some people in studio tonight and chris walker the former texas tech coach from villanova player. Who's in studio with me. He was like whoa. Gp these these players have been through hell in terms of isolation and quarantine and testing in either. Probably going to have to go through something similar next season. You know this pandemic is not going to be over. We're going to be better suited to deal with it. But i'm going to just be over and we're not gonna play sporting events with positive tests so you probably are going to have to live similar to the way you've lived in the past year. The point chris was making was like who wants to do that. I thought that was a good point. That will be interesting and We'll see where we look up three or four months from now and And we we're at before we do get out. I do wanna mention the us. kansas Game just a couple of fronts real quick here. It's the worst loss in kansas city. Like good on usc. And if i play scorn double figures isaiah mobile had one of his three or four best performance of the season. Evan mobley had amazing spurts as well and kansas just got. Its but but absolutely kicks a good on. Usc and we'll preview their game later in the week here but for kansas it loses eight hundred fifty. One it's the worst loss in program history in the ncaa tournament. The previous worst loss actually came in nineteen forty in the national championship game and they got dropped. Sixty to forty two by indiana but the only worst losses ever in program history according to espn stats info on a credit them. For finding this. I was a forty point loss in nineteen hundred to nebraska that is. I'm almost positive. Pre pinnacle bank. Don't believe there was a pinnacle bank in nebraska in nineteen hundred when kansas got dropped by a forty burger and seventy four. They lost by thirty seven to kentucky. The other element to this is that win. Are we going to. Kansas than the spot again are they. When are they going to be back in the tournament. I had one coach. Text me just out of curiosity i. I wonder if this was bill self last game kansas. I don't think that it is. I think he will eventually service suspension there in the middle of the process. No one knows how long this is gonna take but the question is will. They receive a postseason ban if they do. When will it happen and when it happens. How many years will it be. So i can't tell you if we'll we'll see him in twenty two or twenty three or if we will or we won't but that was the backdrop to a very ugly loss. It's okay now. we're going to the off season with kansas. And we'll talk about it when it comes up in the in the offseason in general but i just. I wanted to mention that. Like kansas has made the tournament every year for you know more than three decades. It's a long streak in the history of the sport and that streak might come to an end next year at the hand of the aarp. I would assume that it will and the question. I think isn't whether kansas gets. Kansas just argues its case in wins case. Let's like this rule that out crazy. Everybody thought north carolina was getting pounded. North carolina argued its case and it was successful. It is possible. Changes can do the same thing but i think the more likely question we end up debating is the postseason ban is at one year or two. You know like i. Most people in the sport believed at kansas as punishment will come in the next twelve months and will be significant but as always will see trying to predict what the instability ever gonna do is not the easiest thing in the world to do shelves the devon downey chefs to chester south carolina shells tariam.

The lead item is on how some conferences might as kobe. nineteen continues to rage throughout this country. Pivot to controlled environments. The biggie seems like the most likely candidate to do it norlander. It's your columns. I'll let you take it from here. What folks need to know about conferences possibly using controlled environments to complete regular season. Sure good morning. Gp so this was the lead item. Yeah the court report for the For this no Just a weekly notebook-type column that we run during the season and the first one when up on tuesday I'll put a link in the podcast bio description for this episode if If you want to tap through and go ahead and read it but yes the big. The main item is is about all of this. I spoke with val ackerman. The commissioner of the big east on monday afternoon about two hours after the big. He's actually released. The rest of its schedule for the regular season. Actually hatton revealed until monday. Just when it plans on playing these games in january and february and early march But the idea was to talk with val ackerman about if you decide to go to a mohegan sun or anywhere else What would have to happen for plans to change. And it's not just the big east. I just happen to think that the big east is the one power conference that is best preparing itself to do this if necessary. Although i i think the pac twelve think the pac twelve is also going to be in a place. Where if it needs to particularly with everything that's happening in california and how it governs in regard to covid nineteen. I think it might be in place there. That would probably be my second most likely. And then we'll see if If leagues like the The american which is an airplane league or the. Acc would do it. I don't get the same sense at the moment with the big ten. Big twelve Not that they wouldn't but there are certain leagues were just seems to be more buzz. Wctc presidents by the way are meeting later. Today i'm told they have Reintroduced the potential. Go to vegas play games nepad if necessary but anyway. That's kind of a abroad. Look at where we are with the with. The confidence ackerman told me that a decision on this would almost certainly be made within the next two to four weeks and the factors that would go into. It are whether you'd have a situation in the big east which has eleven programs. Men's and women's do we have. Do you get to a point where you have five or six schools. That are in a pause at the same time and then your schedule is just completely just completely wrecked Would it be a situation where you have county restrictions in two or three spots two or three states and therefore your hand is effectively forced the she item but this in the story but she also mentioned she. She was clear to mention that she hasn't heard anything of this sort. But if we discover that the insular tournament was pushed back to three or four weeks. And those circumstances dictated or at least allowed for the biggest to Get all its games and in the easiest way to do that would be in a controlled environment. That would be another thing so I think the biggest takeaways are the fourth spot. Cities that are under consideration are mohegan sun. Washington dc chicago which has wintrust arena. Which is apparently attached to a hotel dolls new arena and then the indianapolis with the with the convention center there. Those are the four spots. The biggies is looking at remains to be seen is Would you have men's and women's going to different spots because the other thing akron told me was if this does happen. And i don't think would happen until mid january at the earliest but we'll know the next two to four weeks would you send the midwest teams who go to indiana chicago and all the east eastern seaboard teams. We go to dc mohegan. So with the men's teams go to one spot in the women's go to another or would it be in the same that hasn't been determined. But if you're butler xavier creighton depalma marquette. Those are the five midwest teams. You'd go to the midwest spots and the six others on the east coast would go to mohegan and or washington d. c. So it's i. I was happy to ackerman was willing to to talk about this. And frankly be transparent About the process much as she could be. Because i think it is important and i do think that you know. We're in three thousand daily in this country. Just it seems like it could be a spot where inevitably heading to gp and that seems even more of a reality on top of you know shoshefsky comments last week. They kind of triggered this kind of stuff from from commissioner. So that's where we're at with this topic here would be my question if you are considering doing it. And clearly. the big east is. I mean they've got actual plans in place or possible plans in place. If you're considering doing it you can do it. Like i remember. Once upon a time some people suggested it's just a nonstarter like you can't go to controlled environments with amateur student athletes. Well yes you can cause you here. We are and you at multiple but conference conferences. Considering doing so if you're considering doing and publicly acknowledging that you're considering doing it that means you can't do it so if you can't do it why don't you do it. What is the argument against it. It's clearly safer if the wellbeing of the student athlete is the priority. It is clearly safer to be in a controlled environment than it is to be than it is to be flying around the country to milwaukee of one day to omaha the next to new york city. The next so it's clearly safer and it's obviously the thing that gives you the best opportunity to actually get through this. Because i don't think we can even debate anymore about whether you're going to have constant stoppages em- program shutdown. It's happening literally every day. So i appreciative of avow acknowledging publicly with you that yes we are considering. We're gonna make a decision on it in the next two weeks. I guess i would just wonder if you don't do it. Why why don't you do it because you clearly can. And it's clearly a better option. The the answer. The question right now. Is that the commissioner and the eighties and coaches are relying on advice of doctors within the league. And then the president's obviously having the ultimate say and because because all of these campuses don't have students on them right now. Ackerman told me that. The doctors are highly confident. And to paul game but the dodgers are highly confident right now that they can continue to get their games in with nobody on campus. And that's still the most workable situation. It's still the preference of of in the league. And i would include that to be eighty and coaches although there are some coaches. I believe that if you told them okay. For starting on december twenty eighth until january eighth. We're gonna send you here. I think a lot of coaches would be on board with that. Maybe not all of them. At this point. I think a lot would but the doctors say that the traditional travel schedule is workable but depaul is the prime example here of why this might be an inevitability in the big east and or other leagues to paul has not yet played a game and when i talked to ackerman they had released schedule. Interpol paul was due to play thursday. A gap at providence after having previous games rescheduled and then had another positive cova test. It's the third time to. Paul has been paused. Within a month's time so again. I feel like the big east is relatively on top of this and and we'll be able to pivot if you will Whenever that time becomes necessary. But i wouldn't expect we're talking here on the sixteenth of december. I wouldn't expect a decision on this. Barring something truly drastic until at least two weeks from today and probably more likely the first week of january i had another source not in the big east but someone who is connected to mohegan sun that if this were to happen that they wouldn't expect mohegan sun to actually be involved in this and host games until the very end of january slash first couple of days of february. If it were to happen there. I do think i do think. This is a very doable. If not preferable solution. One other detail that i think is important here that i don't think we'll be flexible. Ackerman told me that if this were to happen You have to take into consideration. What teams need. What kind of games. Where the schedule is and having said that the teams would be asked to leave anywhere from five to twelve days To be away from their campuses to get games in Because the one thing that is important and jay bright had mentioned this to me after villanova's final game at the mohegan sun bubble. He said this was worth it. No regrets my guys didn't anticipate being here eight days. They thought it was gonna be a four day trip and so there definitely done like if we had another opportunity to get a fifth game. I would not take it now part of that. You know expectations parish. They thought they were going for four day trip and twice. They went to bed thinking they were leaving in the morning. Only to be woken up to say. Actually we're gonna play another game so with all that in mind. The biggies is going to take that in consideration and this will not be a deal where the teams are gone for three weeks. It will be five to twelve days and figure that you know teams will get anywhere from from three to six games when they do that so just i think that's another important thing for people to realize when we talk about this. We're not talking about sending schools and teams away to a mohegan or chicago and they're there for five weeks. That's not going to be the case. It will be short bursts. Which i think is the most effective way of doing it. So if you're gonna take the mid west schools and put them together and the eastern seaboard schools and put them together. That means they only play each other. I if you worked at indo to another controlled environment. Da you shuffled up a little bit. I think so. The one thing ackerman added is that the only not the only way but she said if if everyone went to the same spot at the same time that would probably be at the end of the regular season because the schedules would necessitate it. So to say like depaul hasn't gotten in any games against yukon any games against saint john's any games against providence. It needs to play those teams so obviously we need to have them in the same building there. that how this works out is going to be very interesting. 'cause also apologised in general is way behind the eight ball here. It's one of at this point. I think about fifteen schools that still plans on playing a non conference that has not yet played a game yet. A lot of those teams are actually getting those games in the got them in last night on tuesday tonight or tomorrow and even a few more here this weekend so by the end of the weekend. If those teams don't lose games we will be in the single digits in terms of teams yet to play a game that are still hoping to play a game. i'm not including ivy league etc etc there The one other thing that i didn't include in the court report is as of right now. The big east still intends to play its tournament at madison square garden without fans for the men's and the women's actually previously already agreed to a three year deal to play the women's tournament at mohegan sun. So that's already happening I'll be interested to see if the garden is still choice. That's not a cheap thing. And if you don't have a gate if you don't have fans What can be done there to help with that. I'm guessing will probably still be there. That all remains to be determined as well. This will become the idea of playing in different spots. We talked about on the podcast. Plenty but i do think that it's it's kind of destined to become a consistent topic weekly in college basketball after christmas because as expected gp eighty percent completion rate about in college. Hoops and conferences. Just have to determine if they're going to be good with that or if they want to get more games in because the one thing that ackerman mentioned to me and i've talked to a couple of other league commissioners in the past two weeks that they don't want to accept this reality so it makes them a bit uncomfortable Let's just talk. Let's just hypothetically big twelve. The league's really don't want to have a situation where so the eighteen league games baylor gets in seventeen league games and kansas. For whatever reason gets an eleven you know and they they want to avoid that as much as possible and if you want to avoid that it goes back to what you mentioned at the top If you can do it why don't you do it. So conferences are going to have to have some come to jesus moments in meetings soon. Hear about plan bs and Credit to the big east for being a clear plan b. At this point. I want to be clear about this. It's not like it's going to happen but it's not afraid to discuss what what needs to be happening. And frankly i think that some some leadership that we should be We should be seeing at the power conference level elsewhere in the sport. Yeah i want to be clear to like as i'm asking questions like if the big east is considering doing this it means it can do it so why not just do it. I do give them credit for at least acknowledging like this is something we have to consider. We are considering. I'd be in favor of them just taking it a step further but like they're doing more seemingly more than most other conferences so they are to be applauded for that and I hear what you're saying like the big twelve doesn't want a situation where behler play seventeen league games in. Kansas plays twelve. But if you try to do it the way you're doing right now that is going to happen. Maybe not in the big twelve. It's going to happen somewhere like you said to play the game yet It was interesting. Whit babcock the athletic director at virginia tech held a press conference on tuesday to discuss a number of things among them that justin puente his head. Football coach is going to return as his head football coach but he was pretty transparent about the kovin obstacles that football program endured during the season and he and. I don't think i'd ever heard that. But heater put it. So plainly he said roughly seventy five percent of our football players got cova during the season. And i think he's at eight of our ten coaching coaches on-staff got kobe. Basically we went through the entire program. And you'd be a fool to think that's not going to happen in basketball. It's already happening in basketball. And in football you can get three positive tests contact tracing it ten people down and still play a game in basketball you you. We're we're seeing it every day. Like you get these positive tests and you've got to shut down for seven days ten days fourteen days into paul's case so long that you can't even play a game and the season started three weeks ago. So i i you know. I don't understand being unwilling to you. Know you said they don't wanna accept this reality. What i don't understand that because being unwilling to accept reality this is our reality. And so i don't have any doubt that as she said we can plow through it doing it this way but it will lead to uneven results. Do something playing lots of games. Some teams barely playing at all. If if your goal is to do this the safest way possible and avoid that. Then the controlled environment is the only way to avoid it and even a controlled environments not perfect but it is so much better than what we're doing right now and it is literally what i suggested more than four months ago and i'm not an epidemiologist. I'm just somebody who listens to them. This wasn't hard to predict my last thing on this because you mentioned the seven to ten day. So the cdc has reduced its recommendation for fourteen day quarantine for contacts down to down to ten days and villanova versus virginia. Since run topic of biggies. That game was supposed to be played saturday at madison square garden. That game is not going to be played and This is according to a source. I spoke to. It's not because virginia has another positive test. It's that virginia and or the local healthy county guidelines still have an adjusted to meet the new. Cdc recommendation and so virginia's just not allowed to leave and go play villanova at this point. It's not. It's not permissible so to that point. If you have other schools in the big east conference like that that are still gonna have their county guidelines not change to match the cdc in the next one week two weeks. Six weeks gp. That's just another reason. Why leagues could be pushed to strongly. Consider this because we would you know it might be logical to think a well. The cdc the national governing body for for this has now officially changed its guidelines for quarantines. When everyone do it will maybe but maybe not and and the bureaucratic process of actually changing. That might be a bit of a grind. And so if that's the case you know the seasons happening now you gotta make changes as soon as you can. And so the reality of that on the ground locally with each school with each county also could be a factor in ultimately whether they change how they play schedule out so to bottom line at val ackerman. The baby's k. commissioner said that the league is considering this and we'll make a decision on a probably within the next two weeks so we'll we'll wait and see what they do. But i do applaud that league for at least publicly acknowledging. This is on the table and under consideration. If you haven't read it yet. Norlander report is posted right now. Cbs sports dot com. It's also on his twitter feed. It has also on my twitter feed since we last spoke on sunday night. I suppose the most impressive win that's been recorded belongs to marquette. Golden eagles went inside the c. h. i. health center omaha upset creighton. Eighty nine eighty four on monday night. We're going to get into that next.

What's up y'all dj cabinet and this is the first one we hear from all the alias. Music stars like j galvin. Nah and kelly rowland about solve. That didn't change the game but changed their life. It's almost like sometimes before you even get an industry. It's like you set up to fail in his so many moments where you can win and the winning is great but is so many things that you go through to get to the win as so much. More who stories about the first hits that took them to the next level. Chase alive overlooked to be overbooked. When i was recording the song already knew he was gonna be global. And i'm not joking my g. I really felt inside of me. I was like Just wait to see a number one. Join me every thursday. With the first one drops only on amazon music less skull so marquette went inside the hill center omaha and upset create an eighty nine eighty four on monday night. Dj carton the ohio state. Transfer got twenty points five rebounds five. Assists dawson garcia. Mcdonald's all american got fourteen points and ten rebounds so now marquette is five and two with wins over creighton and wisconsin. The losses are to ucla and oklahoma. State that equates to two wins over ranked teams two losses to unranked teams. It's not good enough for the top twenty five and one as of this moment in my opinion. But it's still a fine. Start to the season norlander. Do you believe in milwaukee biggies programs. I believe marquette fans are not surprised at all to share what you shared I'm starting to believe this is a big win I don't understand The name that you just wrench mentioned with with crane. But that's fine to me. It's kyle korver arena. But that's so. Let me stop here for a second. I hate this arena. Name he tell you why because it c. h. hi i. Which when you read it you don't know whether it is it is it. Cha is it. A shot chai hill center omaha or is it c. h. i. You should not have an arena. That is that people can easily mispronounce or miss identify. Like i had to go in. Don't ever think i. Just turn on these microphones and start talking. I do so much prefatory. Podcast that i spent time on youtube watching omaha news clips to try to figure out properly. Say c. h. I. hilson omaha. You shouldn't make me do that. I've got three kids. I got a radio show. I gotta rank twenty-six basketball teams every morning and write a lead item. I gotta do. Tv later on this afternoon. I shouldn't be watching omaha. News casts a on youtube. Try to figure out how to say you're stupid arenas name fix this current i also know they got like twenty year deal worth like twenty three million dollars to put chr. Oh i know that. Because i watched newscasts on youtube from omaha so i get it money thing but we could have done better than this. Thank here. I'm with you on that like madison square garden. That's easy nobody's going to miss bravo. Madison bank arena. Pinnacle bank is impossible to win there but very easy to don't know if it's impossible to win there brassica. That actually might be true. All right. so it's it's a it's a five and two marquette team coming off a nice win against creighton also has a great Win against wisconsin to me. Yeah marquette going to be a tournament team. i've seen. I've seen enough i. I watched their The loss of so all the wisconsin. Game is a tough loss against ucla. They've beaten creighton. But i i like the pieces a lot here Koby mcewen Really good senior. Justin lewis solid freshman Bene- theo john fan for years but to me. Dj carton Is is a big factor here and he had a very good game against creighton. And what's interesting about. What happened on tuesday night. Is that a couple of hours here. The d one council is gonna meet and it is going to pass new legislation for the incident play that basically says if you are transferring as a college athlete no matter the sport your in in want to go to another school. You do not have to sit here anymore. That will be the new life and that and that's something that perish and i i can remember us talking about the seven years ago on the podcast. So it's finally changing and dj carton was a transfer from ohio state last year and given immediate a lot of players. Were given this not everyone but it just kinda goes to show One that should be allowable period but how much impact this can make it to me. I will say this marquette with carton marquette without carton might be the difference between them being tournament team and not. I do actually think that is the case. He's eligible a really good game has stepped in and been an immediate impact player and he was a really good recruit. So this isn't this isn't a surprise or anything. He was actually forthcoming about mental health challenges. He had ohio state last season transferred out finds a spot he loves. Marquette makes them meeting impact their great on him. Good story there. And i have no issue always admitting when i'm wrong i was off on marquette. You know right now. It's thirty third at at ken. Tom at part of that's a projection. Of what the of what has metric think it will be part of. Its what they've actually done. We don't get a full Full in-season evaluation statistically calm until we could tell at the end of january but i didn't think marquette would be a top forty team. I do think that they will be this season. I've changed my mind. They've got a big game scheduled at home thursday night against seton hall. So you know. We'll see what happens there. But i don't know i've seen enough. I like the pieces. Good sized shooting. Good guard play not a top twenty team. I don't think but good enough team. And good on mojo who has been embattled a bit Would have been a tournament team last year. I believe but And i don't think he's on the hot seat right now or anything but i know marquette fans have been frustrated because they feel like they just haven't hit that threshold where they write with buzz but But this could be the year where there might have been a certain expectation level and the teams going to exceed it. I think that'll be what ends up happening. You look at what that program has lost over the past couple seasons you lose the house or brothers. After the two thousand eighteen nineteen season one goes to michigan state in scoring one. Virginia leads them in scoring. then they can't play against each other because of covid nineteen lose. Marcus howard consensus first team. All american off last season's team and so there was reason to be skeptical about what this team would be. You didn't know koby mcewen would take the jump that he's taken like i remember talking to the marquette staff last season and they were still trying to figure out. This is probably late december january. I don't know they were trying to figure out okay. Who is going to be are consistent number two guy that we know what marcus is and what he's going to do but who could be the other guy and they thought it would be coping but it just wasn't for people who don't know he was a three star prospect class of two thousand sixteen two seasons at utah state than transferred to marquette and he was under he was not what i thought. I'll just put it on. Me was not last season. What i thought he would be and i know that the staff had identified him as the as the guy who had the ability to be the know the best sidekick marcus howard and he just never really established himself as that but now he's averaging a team best fifteen point seven point four point one rebounds two point six assists in believe a team high thirty one point one minutes per game shooting forty two point nine percent from three. He only shut twenty nine point two percent from three and averaged nine and a half points five rebounds so is scoring numbers way up. Three point percentage way up and you add dj carton and you mentioned he was a good recruit top thirty five in the class of two thousand. Nineteen darshan dawson. Garcia was thirty six in the class of two thousand and twenty. Like that's a pretty good top three and so yes. I do have marquette fans tweeting me like why can't be in the top twenty five and one they can. They're just you know reasonably could be you know i do. I've said this for years. I pay attention to walls columnists much they pay attention to the win column and they do have two losses to unranked teams but neither losses. Terrible to two possible if not probable. Ncaa tournament teams. So i don't have marked the top twenty five and one if somebody puts marquette on api ballot. I won't shame them for it. It's a perfectly reasonable thing to do either way the bottom line exists. Marquette is building a really good. ncaa tournament resume already. And there aren't many teams that have to better winds than the winds. They've already got a last second tip in win over wisconsin In in a road victory over create. i agree Can we get to the news. That was by far the best thing that i think both of us. All on tuesday. Yeah some encouraging. News related to florida's. Can't they johnson as you know. The preseason ac- player of the year collapsed on the court satiety at florida state rushed to the hospital listed in critical but stable condition on tuesday afternoon. His parents released a statement. They say he's now in stable condition breathing on his own speaking. They said even face time with his teammates. So that's all obviously awesome still a long way to go clearly. But i'll just be honest based on some of the things. I was hearing in recent days. That was a really great update to get. I'm just really encouraging news. Because this is obviously a in an unfortunate in scary situation parish. When i saw this at literally uplifted my entire day. Just because there's been so much uncertainty. And like i felt a true jolt of positivity because first of all the way these things are getting released For you and i and those in the media plenty of fans to like. They're getting posted to social media through the florida twitter account. And it's just at first the first thing i see the florida logo with the dark backdrop. The white text. And you just don't know what you're going to read so it's always like a an instance set of like just read over like okay. What am i about to read here. But i do want to. I i love this. I love this statement. Can't this is from his parents by the way this is from florida. This is from. His parents can't days in stable condition breathing on his own speaking with us and with his doctors here at uf healthy even facetime with the team exclamation point. We feel so much love and support from everyone. And we're beyond grateful for the care and attention that chianti has received throughout these past several days. I'll stop there real quick they. They've also set up an address. Because apparently you know people want to send all these. Well wishes all this mail. It's got to be Quite an amazing scene for his family and for chianti. If he's truly you know on the men and feeling better because he's about to get a mountain range of mail and that'll they'll certainly be something. The statement continues. We will continue to share updates about health and progress. We've seen how much people love and care for him. We hope people recognize that information. That doesn't come from us or the athletic department may not be accurate. We are working closely with quixote's doctors and the u. A to provide information to everyone who care so deeply about chianti and has been praying for him and statement that may or may not be a reference to a story that was broken by usa today earlier this week that quoted quixote's grandfather saying that he had been put in a medically induced coma. Might be referring to something else. I read it as i read it as a. Don't pay to what grandpa say. Yes so i thought that was important thing to put in there. That was a positive statement and just a reminder we and this is a reminder to everyone fans media like this is a serious serious serious medical condition. And you know there doesn't need to be a race to scoop quixote johnson status here okay. He's in the hospital. Family was no doubt fearing for their child's life a few days ago and we can rely on the family and the school to update us as need be so. I thought this was a wonderful update. the fact that we are giving you know getting reference to him being awake alert enough to face time with the team You know i don't know this. This was this was a really really really good. Update i was i was. I'm telling you like. I was having a fine day. I i wasn't down to the desperate. When i saw it like literally turned my day around like it was because i was hoping and waiting we could get good news and take johnson story has just been you know scary enough and i think it's something were college athletes pro athletes. Whether they've been around situation like this that that is similar or they just understand the nature of of how something like this can affect Human beings let alone players involved in this. It's just one of those things where he has obviously transcended college basketball and he has been getting messages in well wishes from a non professional athletes as well so this was a this was a great positive update and to see if when we can get another one later this week and We know Florida has i was told. The game will not be played period against florida. Which the four tonight. Technically florida's is defining that as a postponement will wait and see and then. It has another game scheduled against florida atlantic for this weekend the status of that game as we record this podcast has not yet been decided before we get out here. There was a significant moment in women's basketball on tuesday night norlander. I'll let you explain. Well i felt that Certainly worth mentioning here. Tara vanderveer stanford coach Went into pacific and just a typically just dominant win got win number one thousand ninety nine and that is significant because vanderveer past pat summitt. All time wins list in women's college basketball So now vanderveer is the winningest coach in history of women's college basketball. What's interesting. Is that gino. Auriemma sitting at one thousand ninety three and this used to be a thing with and i guess if you really wanna get technical. Maybe still is with behind k. But behind lost more than one hundred wins due to a vacated winds. We don't have to get down that rabbit hole of why that's you know silly. Not whatever but for the purposes of official recordkeeping. That's just no longer close behind. Going to catch ski. Vanderveer and auriemma auriemma sixty. Six vanderveer is sixty seven to me. Auriemma has got at least five more years. I honestly feel like orient unless he wants to get out and work in the media become an analyst which he could have instantly if you wanted to orient. he's got a decade more him But we could have a an intriguing back and forth race here. Yukon obviously has been the more dominant program but vanderveer. Who started at idaho and seventy and then got to. I ohio's excuse me in nineteen eighty nine stanford since Since eighty five one a couple of national championships been twelve final. Four is one of the greatest coaches in college basketball history and there was some. There's some cool history. That was made on tuesday night by stanford. So that's a. That's a pretty cool deal. And then i think you might wanna talk about pat summitt real quick here but i'll just i'll just transition it to you with this. You know. Pat summitt tragically taken from us way too early and had that not been the case and has had summits health not failed her You know she'd be running away with this. So it pat summitt rightfully still regarded as one of the greatest coaches in basketball history period. And if you want to define it within women's basketball she is the best deal. That's that's those who know love cover the sport and no at best understand what geno auriemma has built and certainly that might be his title. Eventually if you can keep going and wants to keep going but as of right now where we stand. Pat summitt is still because of what tennessee. What what women's basketball was period. What she built up. She is still the greatest. But it statistically now the winningest ever for the time being with six months ahead of gio and gino oromia. Emma is tara vanderveer. And i love the way lady. Vall basketball handled this on tuesday night. They sent a tweet from their official twitter account at lady vol underscore hoops. And it says one thousand ninety nine pat would be proud. Congratulations coach vanderveer. And it's a a an image of pad and tara getting ready to embrace and so it was just a really sweet moment and as often is the case when stuff like this happens triggers something in my head and i start googling and next thing you know. I'm just spent an hour doing something. I did not anticipate doing so. I suddenly pat summitt all over my time line because of what happened. And i'm like i remember writing a pat summitt column like when she passed. I am trying to find. And i couldn't find it but i did. I bumped into a like an eleven minute interview. I did with adam. Shine time to shine after coach summit passed and it featured me telling you some personal stories. I had with with coach summit like just you know. We spoke at the coaching clinic. Once at an la which seemed ridiculous ridiculous but afterward there was like You know a cocktail by the pool type situation for all the speakers by all the speakers like ten people. Fifteen people and i randomly ended up at a table like me and a couple of other people in pat summitt. And just you know just talking with pat summitt for hours which was an amazing experience. But i had forgotten about this story. And i heard it when i was. I told it on time the shine totally secondhand story. But it's a story from courtney bangert who at the time she told. The story was the coach at princeton nazis. The head coach at north carolina. And it's just an amazing pat summitt story. As the story goes courtney is like a second year assistant in evaluating prospects at an event in orlando and she's walking. You know it's one of the you've been at these things you walk into a gym. You're in there all day. You could've walked in and it's sunny now you're walking out and it's pouring down. Rain have no idea so courtney's walking through the parking lot of this event again a totally no-name second year assistant coach and women's basketball and it's pouring down rain. She has no umbrella hears a voice from behind her say. Do you not have an umbrella or did you forget your umbrella and that she turned around with pat. Summitt pet summit says here get under get under my umbrella and so she got gets under our umbrella. She says okay. Now let me walk you to your car with your car. And she's like courtney's in awe. She's like talking under an umbrella. Pat summitt the dream and she Embarrassingly as coach summit. I'm sorry i don't know where my car. I forgot where i parked. That's okay. we'll just ride around. We'll get in. My car will ride around the we find it and so they find it and she thinks code some really honor to meet you. Thank you for helping me and you know. She's according to. That was fun. I hope to see you down the road. Fast forward you know. I don't know year later. Two years later later they're at another grassroots event evaluating prospects and as is the case with these things often these things happen places and you walk into any restaurant bar in the area and like it's filled with coaches. According to is going to get late. Dinner happens to get seated at a table with her party. About three tables over from pat summitt in her party and so they've finished their meal and and courtney's i just wanna go over and reintroduce myself to pet summit and just teller once again. Hey i don't know if you remember but you did this. Nice thing for me and i really appreciate it and so she says before i do that. Let me get the check and settle up so to get the server for the check and the server says your check is already been taken care of coach summit handled and told me to tell you. Good luck finding your car. Oh my gosh. Just and what you find out is that everybody's got pat story like that so awesome accomplishment and night for tara vanderveer but what i love most about it is it brought some it back into the public consciousness and allowed me. I reminding me that story even exist. That put a smile on my face on on tuesday without a doubt. That's that's a really good story. And yes Interfere appeared on. Sap sports on her show didn't interview there and You know she. This is a good moment for her. In for stanford stanford basketball period Because tara vanderveer oh just isn't as recognisable of coaching as the name As pat summitt is Certainly geno auriemma. Those who love the sport now are but this is she was certainly It was long overdue. And she was deserving the moment and i wanted to make sure that we paid her some respect here in the midst of a really good season for a for stanford cardinal women's hoops couple quick ones before we get out of here. Gp since we're talking stanford and we Come full circle in the court report. I got a story about stanford assistant. Alex can tell real quick. There's stuff in that you want to read about pac twelve player got scam trying to buy a ps five which was which was a pretty interesting some conference expansion news but so stanford assistant. Men's assistant adam cohen he- fluid carolina to be with the team for the maui invitational nashville. How about this so stanford. Right now played pacific. It can't play home games. Women men the can santa clara stanford san jose state. They're all in santa clara county. They cannot play. The forty niners playing games in arizona. So all of this started when stanford flew out of oakland to asheville for the maui. Invitational the decision to not allow close contact. Sports in that county happened when stanford was in the air. So adam cohen lands to he lands in amarillo texas when they need to refuel it to discover. Oh by the way like you just left him when you come back. You can't if you come back like you can't play games you're gonna have to quarantine you're more than one hundred and fifty miles away and his wife has plans to syrian section like. It's a disaster. So he has he gets carolina then has to go through the pain of booking a flight back as soon as possible because in order for him to be in the hospital for his first born he had to get back immediately. Be with his wife. Quarantine the program. He kept it on the down. Low and In terms of like we didn't publicize it. He wasn't there in maui. He wasn't there when they played ncaa. And t and so he got back little. Leo was born I it's it's an amazing story but it's also a brutal story you know. In that he got back was there then he left. Last friday drove to los angeles from his house near stanford to play. Usc usc canceled. Its game or postponed. Because of covid and now stanford it played last night but like he just became a first time dad and he's not with his he can't be with his kitten right now like they're not in santa clara county and they got to figure out what they're gonna be able to go back. He also mentioned to me he was like you know jared hostile head coach. He's like he's got three kids everywhere. Staff has kids. They've they've been away from their families even longer. This is not an ideal situation. And so i talked with. I talked with adam on monday To kind of include that anecdote and do give it a read of the court report. There's photos in there and everything but like it's frigging wild that he had to do that period and now they're just they camp. We talk about all of this team coconut schedule. They gotta get home games or they can't get home games but it's like you're literally can't go to your family because the rules of the county and these are you know quasi public figures like they have to abide by the quarantine rules and so there's no telling when this is gonna change for people in santa clara county there's worry within the pac twelve in la county and elsewhere in california and it when you are when your job description is college basketball coach. Head coach assistant coach. Or whatever in your livelihood depends on you being able to travel like it actually has a real significant impact on your family life on a day to day basis so we didn't plan on talking to us on the podcast but we just talked about tara and figure. I bring up that other anecdotes. Well but i. I thought important bring up because that's gp. That's i we both fathers think. Think about when aden was born if you had to leave him within seventy two hours for work and when you left you really didn't know if it would be another ten twenty thirty days until you saw your firstborn child again. Yeah i mean it's not only rough from that perspective. It's rough for the mother. Of course you know like good recovering from a c. Section is not an easy thing to do and so yeah i mean is just a hard year. It's a hard year for everybody. In in a variety of ways but congrats to adam known him for a while and You know to to be the father of of a healthy baby is a is a pretty awesome thing. So the the the the under the circumstances You know i. it's less than ideal but he's the father of a healthy baby and that's a again. That's a great deal. I want to get out on one more thing. More of a quizzical note here. I need verdict from you on something Okay didn't realize the thing until bobby regan from barstool. Sports pointed out on twitter thoughts on florida state hanging at twenty twenty cancelled banner and finishing number four in the people. They got a banner up there that says season cancelled and they finished fourth in the poll. They h- that. This is all due respect to tom. But it feels feel of tom cream grabbing a ladder after a loss. Kind of deal to me thoughts arctic. I i would not have even thought to do it. I don't mind it. Because i have thought about the like a lot of people missed out on an opportunity to change their wikipedia page in significant ways when the ncaa tournament was cancelled like bill. Self could be a two time national championship coach right now. Dayton could have a national title. You know florida state literate hamilton. Final four codes. I don't think anybody really knocks leonard hamilton. But to the extent that people might it'd be well he's never been to a final four. Well he had a team that was good enough to get their a team. That was going to have to win at all and so i. I don't mind anybody celebrating an a great team. Even if that great team wasn't able to see the season through because of a once in a generation pandemic again. I if it were if i were in charge. I don't think we would have hung that banner. But i'm not gonna clown anybody for celebrating a great team that had it season abruptly cut short cancelled spelled correctly on the banner one l. Then god that's good. That's good that's good. It's it's an interesting visual because a you could've put anything. But the fact that they decided they someone had to like mockup a designer. Like what we wanna put here. So i from a logo all right we finished fourth in the ap. Top twenty five. Yeah let's just let's just have canceled. Let's just just put. I probably would have left. The word canceled even with one off. I would have just been like. Hey let's let's hey why don't we carve out a new section because it's their arena. It's there and they do whatever they want with it. Why not a new section. For every time we finished in the top ten of the people in our history and and in the two twenty. We'll just be one of the group like i would probably try to budget in to have something so drastically different than everything else. I would created my own new little section final top ten people rankings. Here are the banners that represent that. Maybe i'd gone that way right. Hey before we get outta here you contribute time real quick of course trivia koffi koffi coburn got thirty three points thirteen rebounds and twenty five minutes. I'll tuesday night. Illinois's ninety two sixty five over minnesota became the first player to get at least thirty three and thirteen in twenty five or fewer minutes against a division one opponent. Since you've gotta garza that's not true. Okay todd actually might be true. I thought it might have been a situation. That was awesome. And then you're like how gas is this it's very decibel it is It was done by somebody who was a awesome college basketball player. Top five pick in the nba draft. Who then did not go on to have a great nba career. Zion williamson. what are you talking about going to have a great nba career. He's he's the keith. Nineteen years old. I'm going to answer the question. But can i just say. I don't understand how that photo of james harden made him look twenty nine pounds overweight and then in his uniform he was. Okay i do. That was like if i were james harden. I'd be trying to get that deleted off the internet because he got clown seemingly for no reason like i saw. I saw the picture. And i was like ooh. James harden busy struggling. Like i'm struggling and i saw and then i saw the video of actually planning. I was like he doesn't look like that. But if we can be honest with ourselves we kinda wanna see. James harden seventeen pounds overweight still dropping thirty two and night which could do which he could do when. I kind of want to have happen. But that wasn't the case fat guy. A fat guard lead the nba in scoring career. Honestly do i do want that. And i'm also not ready is like college basketball a couple weeks that the nba. It's we just finished the finals. That's already back for you and your radio all that stuff but it's just like mba's back already. It's already here. who's the answer. Top five pick decent career. I actually thought he should have been the national player of the year in this year. I don't believe he was but still. He was a top five taken the subsequent nba draft but did not have a great nba career. Gimme the conference. Big twelve I'm trying to think of guys that would have that would qualify. Because it's got to be a big guy. Oh how about how about nick. Collison nicholson is an incorrect answer. do i have the right barn. No i'll give you one more hand and you should be able to get in and if not i mean i'm i'm in trouble either way. Here he went to the same school. Where brent stover was once a competitive jogger. Michael beasley lizzy in january. Two thousand eight got thirty three and fifteen and twenty two minutes. Kansas state's eighty two fifty seven win over iowa. State coincidentally kansas state. Beat iowa state on tuesday night so the cyclones are now wanted three with losses to south dakota state and the team that lost a ford. Hey state so that's rough but beasley was awesome at kansas state. This dude average. He was awesome. He was awesome. He averaged twenty six point two points. Twelve point four rebounds shot fifty three percents field and thirty percent from three point range. I thought he should have been national player of the year. He wasn't seven eight.

01/03: The Pac-12 is better, but really how much better? Plus: why we think Bill Self is Kansas' coach for the longterm

"Hey there it's scary pairs at Friday January January third two thousand twenty welcome back to the CBS sports eye on college basketball. podcast where we sometimes discuss Campbell fighting leaky Black Matt. Norlander is here with me in the past. Two days. Haven't been the busiest two days in the history college basketball but we did get at least one interesting result late Thursday final score Colorado seventy seventy four number four Oregon sixty five so the ducks five game. Winning streak has been snapped in the Buffalo's four game. Winning streak has been extended to five. You know norlander are we got a nice chuckle. When we did our candid coaches series last off season we asked more than one hundred college coaches to predict which team would win the two two thousand twenty? NCAA tournament more than half of them. Michigan state nearly a third set. Kansas Kentucky Duke. Florida also got multiple votes and then what coach coach put his money on the Colorado Buffaloes at the time the time we laughed but maybe the joke's on us New Orleans or Colorado is now twelve having to get victories over Oregon and Dayton one loss at Kansas. No shame in that the other losses to northern Iowa by three points that's a blemish but not the worst thing in the world either way I submit twelve and two with wins over two teams currently ranked in the top twenty goodstuff. Shasta Tab. Boil Shasta McKinley. Right Shasta Tyler. Obey for what it's worth. I'm moved Colorado up to number seventeen and Friday mornings twenty five and one so. I think I'm a believer when you talk about the top of the pack twelve. You probably have to put Colorado in the same sentence with organ Arizona Right Yes yes to Alec burks by the way Ask you booker. Chef's a youtube awesome buffalo's of Of the past decade there When I did my power rankings earlier this week I vacillated between Florida State and Colorado for for that final spot? I went Florida state but Colorado barring it can win at home on Sunday against Oregon State is going to be in next week's power rankings. They are off to a a really really good start here and they are. They're talented. They're fun they're good defensively. I thought they'd win on on Thursday night. I went on sportsline on. CBS Sports HQ. Pick some games. James and I was more confident in Colorado covering the They were favored by one Than any other game on the board that we picked so good on them and I'm not convinced against the Colorado won't be a better than Oregon by the time the end of the PAC twelve season wraps they get the benefit of the home floor on Thursday night. I watched I most of the game and it was never really truly doubt overall So congrats to congrats to them and Evan Batty continues is to To play well and he's a player. Who by the way tyler? William McKinley right. The fourth are the two best players batty has been. He tweeted something recently. He suffers or suffered from occasional seizures. But he's been clear that for about two years now so it's great to see play like him. He's a sophomore Important big man down low. He's healthy playing well and Colorado there on the come up man. They're going to make the instantly tournament. This is going to be the best buffaloes team in decades here and they've got a shot certainly sweet sixteen material and are kind of you know the to me they would be the example of why the PAC twelve is back in stronger this season. Now we get results that can contradict to a certain extent like Washington losing at home to Ucla and Thursday night. Not a good look. Washington is supposed used to be a much much better team and yet it couldn't defeat. Ucla team that is totally. Doesn't know what it wants to be but on the whole that the PAC twelve is definitely better than it was a season ago. Oh and I would point to Colorado being one of the biggest reasons why because to me. That's a clear top twenty five team and it proved that with the type of wind in the way it got it on Thursday night I agree that the PAC twelve is better than it was a year ago. It'd be almost impossible to be worse but still not good like if you go to Kim. Palm Conference rankings. It is six Behind the big ten big twelve big east. ACC IN SCC and it's one spot ahead of the American conference which is seven but it's closer her to the in terms of rating yes than it is the SEC right now. The PAC twelve conference writing plus ten point. Point four six that is nearly two full points behind the SEC. which plus twelve sixty and it? It's only about a point and a half ahead of the ANC a C.. which is plus nine point zero nine so still still not where it needs to be but some of that's because you know you like ucla way is your is one of your biggest brands Arizona? Your biggest brands in and Ucla's just not any good despite what happened Thursday night and Seattle. That is correct. I'd say on the whole right now. Team set in the PAC twelve. This was not the case. A SEASON AGO teams win the PAC twelve that can and began league. Play and still think that you know getting tournament is a reasonable proposition Oregon Arizona Colorado Stanford. UCLA that's five Washington six And then you can throw in. Don't know maybe maybe Arizona State will see I don't know but that's a year ago so it was two teams. Maybe there was legitimate discussion on this podcast. I wrote about it about a one bid PAC twelve. That won't be the case this season I'm glad we opened up by talking about the buffs. Because they are they are good. But just a quick side note on Washington like Washington's got better than that as Stewart's playing well jade mcdaniels is just way way to win consistent I do love nausea. Carter's game but if you're Washington after getting beat in the diamond head title game on Christmas too a solid Houston and team. That's understandable to come back home. You know eight days later nine days later and it just Washington it looked lacklustre. It was bizarre. It's a much more talented better team the UCLA on your home floor and you blow that kind of opportunity. This is what I the PAC twelve in the big picture even if it gets four teams or five into the instability tournament. What's GonNa wind up happening is? The teams are going to be a disadvantage. Because they're going to have lower seeds like this is this is this is a seed line bump loss AH legitimately Washington losing home to. UCLA is going to hurt down the road. They're ten fourteen so that was the two biggest results I thought are the ones that I took the most stocking on Thursday night where the two PAC twelve games washing dropping ucla and in Colorado Handling Oregon the way that it did. Oregon's fine solid. But I you know I do like Colorado a lot here. I think that it it can be. Well positioned to fight with Arizona and the ducks at the top of the League. Yeah I mean you know it in a vacuum losing to. UCLA's not the. It's not the worst sounding thing in the world but this is a UCLA team that's one hundred seventeenth that can palm that had just lost to cal state fullerton at home. I mean in a span of what five six six days. UCLA loses Fullerton at home and then beat Washington on the road. And so Listen I'm not going to freak out about Washington they still. We've got two first round. Picks is as it has been amazing. But YOU'RE GONNA lose them back to back games to agree with you. The Houston loss is not a big deal. It's a neutral court loss also likely. NCAA tournament team can't lose a home game to UCLA in expect to to compete at the top of the pack twelve. Now they'll probably run off seven straight wins and the first place in the fact. Well that's the way the sport sometimes goes but that is a big time disappointing loss from Washington. And I'm glad you said what you said about Oregon. I'm not concerned. I like like we were talking about this in studio last night. People will look at that and go. Wow the number. Four team in the country lost to unranked team but I think Oregon was actually. Was it an underdog. Yeah you're doing a nice throwback here specifically mentioned this I know right. They were one point dog on the road. Yeah they should. They were expected to lose and they did. Yeah so like it's not. It's not a big deal. It's a single digit loss to equality team team. That will as long as it takes care of businesses weekend be he ranked in the AP poll on Monday. That's nothing shameful there for Oregon. That's still a team. That's gotTa win over Memphis and got to win over Michigan Trivia Time boy the PAC twelve related trivia. What do we got here circling back to Colorado Trivia? Tell okay I'm ready just making sure. Colorado has had eighteen men's basketball coaches in its history. Eighteen one of them eighteen eighteen. Okay one of them is a Naismith Memorial Hall of Famer who won two national championships. After leaving Colorado auto there was a college basketball arena currently named in his honor. Can you name that coach Trivia. Time time to your trivia time. Aw No there is only one coach. Who has to division one arenas named after after her courts I believe it's not arenas to division one courts named after him named that coach one coach two courts named after him? Yep I wonder how many listeners can get this if the listeners that are fans of the school sees coach probably know it but he's he would not be considered like a top twenty all time coach but he is he was he. He was a good coach. Coached in this in this millennium. Did I I. I don't know if it's appropriate to interrupt my trivia time with rivets take time to the trivia time. Okay I'll answer your first and you can think about your I. Is it Mike Anderson Golden Gate Mike and Kate. My what are we talking about. No okay then. I don't know I don't know it is then if it's not him coasted Illinois clearly bill self clearly not bill self is one Lou Henson Illinois New Mexico state last. I checked this was about a year and a half ago. I still hope that's the case although when we ah when we bought the Trivia Times. It's just GONNA be times when I'm pretty sure lose. Heinsohn has two courts named after him at the Division One level shouts to Lou Henson still going by the way according. I'm not going to trust wikipedia on the fly here. Eighty seven years old and still still kicking chefs to you Lou Henson. Who was the coach who was at Colorado left left Colorado to national championships after he left Colorado he won two national championships? There's an renamed in his honor. Is it a division one arena. Yes it is yes. It is. Give me three guesses here my I guess. There's no reason why I think this is it. But I'm I'm I'm just gonNA say fog Allen. It is not fog allen it would be someone in the general era of fog Allen. I I mean I don't I don't I could be mixing areas but I'm going to say yes. Okay then I gotta say Adolph rupp Adolf really feeling good about that one not Alan not rupp now is the arena that this coach is named after you know almost nearly as as common commonly known as like a referee or is it more less. Is it less known it would not not be known like Perina but it is a well known arena. You'll know it the key in any sort of casual college basketball fan would know the arena. It's a power conference arena. Okay let me just roll through this in my head right now. Real quick here power conference arena. GimMe like twenty more seconds. This is amazing. podcasting it's not the Dome it's not What about Henkel Henkel? It is not hinkle. Who would be illegal? I just popped in my it just popped in my head here. I don't no no no more hall of Famer. Coaching cool. The correct answer the correct answer. I I didn't WANNA I didn't WanNa keep extending legendary coach ankle. Man Man you may. Of course everybody remembers the two championships. Coaching goal guy either. He coached Colorado for one season season. One Season Nineteen thirty four. Here's my favorite thing about. I don't even know how I ended up on the list of the Colorado basketball coaches and so you go to the top and from nineteen o one to nineteen. Oh six. They had no coach. They just played coach coach. It literally has no coach. They went a clean and fifteen over five year span. Three games above five hundred. Okay all right. They're doing all right. Actually yeah why not keep it up. It's based on based on Colorado basketball history. It is better editor to have no coach. Then have Jason Garrett yes big about that my goodness good trivia. The time didn't see it coming. Henkel man I got it by. I got the answer or you say I have so much more Colorado Colorado coaching history needs it. It was renamed Hinchelfield House in honor of Butler's longtime coach and breath. Let Director Paul. Tony Hinkle Tony. He'd go of course. PT Kinkel. Tony Hinkle the American football basketball and baseball player coach and college. This dude was accomplished. Wow shouts to him. He wasn't as accomplished Henry. I Henry Abba when Multiple National Championships at Oklahoma state also coached the Oklahoma State baseball team coach. Three Olympic teams won two gold medals only to. I'm in history due to minute history. Multiple gold medals as the coach of the United States Olympic team. One is Mike the Other is Henry Gabe. Tony Hinkle had a one hundred. Eighty three one hundred four and sixteen record and football five hundred sixty wins in basketball. Ask Ball to three hundred ninety two losses and three hundred and thirty five wins in baseball. This dude one. He won eight seventeen eighteen football championships to Missouri Valley Championships in the regular season. AMAC title Basketball Hall of fame. Nine hundred sixty five also a Naismith Smith Hall of Famer. Tony Hinkle how are you. How did that ever listened? Colorado finished eighteen. Fifteen with no coach. Could use Tony Hinkle. Tony Hey go ahead. What if what if people don't talk about this enough? What if from eighteen o one to nineteen o six instead of having no no coach? Colorado actually had Tony Ankle. Well it would have been incredible because Tony Hinkle was born in one thousand nine nine so it would have had a two year old moving into four five six five five year old the Colorado basketball team. What are we even talking about the Colorado in nineteen agree with a two year old? Tony that would have been like goodness. Uh Ah next topic next topic.

If you love Combat Sport we've got you covered each week with separate episodes centered upon the latest news in boxing mixed martial arts and pro wrestling each week. It's the biggest recaps previews and the interviews. You need to hear that unmistakable. Dose of performance enhancing audio uh-huh every week it's the state of combat podcast with the Brian. cavell subscribe download today so afraid Seth Greenberg on ESPN earlier this week and he was asked to give his bold prediction for twenty twenty and his bold prediction. was that bill self is GonNa Leave Kansas to coach the San Antonio Spurs yesterday. The bill self was asked about Greenberg's bold prediction. Here's what he said quote first of all I have not talked to than five hundred six months secondly and most importantly I haven't talked to Buford ever about it and he was in my wedding and I was in his. I know him pretty well. And we've discussed it. Thirdly I think it's kind of an insult insult to the spurs because they have the greatest coach maybe our sport is potentially ever known especially NBA one of the two or three best all time for sure so there's absolutely zero true to that had there's nothing to it at all your thoughts. Madura liner comments. Didn't surprise me. That's a heck of a burn just Greenberg by the way it's like. I haven't haven't talked to the student half a year. Like what's even talking about right now But you know how these things go you know you got producers they gotta make a segment. We want a bold prediction and self actually kind of nailed it on. That is like I understand. You gotta you gotTa create so much content out here but the content backfired. This is out there obviously because we await to see how harsh the penalty is from the AA. I do think that Kansas will be banned from next season's postseason and with that. We you know we wait to see how severely bill self will be punished. In terms of suspension. I do think that he will be facing using a significant suspension and from that it You know speculation will then move to Kansas opt to just simply have an interim coaching situation for however long bill suspended and have him come back or if they'll self wants to to leave Kansas and Yada Yada Yada. You know it'd be intriguing to see bill self at the level. But I've I've always just thought it's been a thing where people are like. Yeah Bill Self. RC Buford are like really tight the and he's been awesome college so he'd be the ideal next person to be in line with San Antonio for all we know it's Becky Hammon is going to be the next coach of the Spurs. I put I put more money on her before or bill self getting that job so you know self. Obviously it makes a little bit of a headline here but I think that no matter my my guess is this no matter or how severe the punishment is from the civil a and even if it was like a season long suspension for bill. I still think that he is going to be the coach. Kansas three years from now. I still think that he will be there. He will be coaching no matter how long he has to sit and whether or not Kansas misses the postseason or not. I guess the first thing I'd say is I defend Seth Greenberg are you. You nailed it. I mean he walked into that studio on that morning and a producer's like hey weird. The C block is going to be on bold predictions addictions for two thousand twenty. Because it's the new year and so give us a big bold prediction you're like oh I don't know maybe bill self to the Senate's Fodio Spurs. Okay that's great boom. Got It thank you. That's the way television works. And so there's a vast difference between listen sources have told me Bill Bill Self knows that a suspension coming and Gregg Popovich is. It's seriously contemplating retirement. And if all of these things fall in a certain direction that I'm just telling you there is a very good chance. Bill Sales going to be coaching San Antonio Spurs next season. There's a big difference between that and saying. Hey Welcome to twenty only twenty. Everybody happy new year. Here's my prediction bill. South could end up to the San Antonio Spurs like one of them's TV bit the other one is like actual reporting. They were just is doing a TV bit. So I don't put any stock into it whatsoever other than it is A bold prediction that ESPN producer asset. Grim uh-huh Greenberg and everybody else sitting at that desk to come up with you know. Listen I think the most likely scenario probably is bill self coaches canes next next season Gregg Popovich coaches the spurs next season. But but we'll see it is interesting because at least partly the reason people bring this up like bill self up to the NBA is because it does appear that the program is about to get hit and he's about to have to endure some type of suspension and. I was talking to another college coach about this several weeks ago. Maybe even months ago at this point and I said you know the way because this is something sometimes people forget typically. Can't make you fire a coach. All they can do is put you in a position where you feel like you really don't have much of a choice but to fire the coach. You weigh the pros and cons and you. You say we need to do this but the entity just come on your campus and say we think you should not employ bill self anymore. You just double middle finger. We don't care what you think you have. You don't control that and so having this conversation with a college coach and I said you know so like if it's a nine game twelve game fifteen game suspension. You just just keep bill self. I said where it gets a little tricky is if it's like a full season suspension then what do you do and without hesitation. The coach said You keep bill cells and I said to us it. Would you really do what he goes. Well just think about it practically. Would you rather fire bill self hire somebody else and hope for the best. I or just pretend that bill had a medical a health issue that had to step away for from a year of step away from the court for a year. But then you get him back and he's good to go. You WanNa you WanNa you WanNa go to a situation where you're in year two of coach. You just hired to replace Bill Self and who knows how that's that's GonNa go or your back with bill self same as it ever was. I think that probably makes sense. I don't know there's anything. The incident delayed could do to Kansas. That would make it smart for Kansas to fire bill self. I agree I if you're Kansas and you gotta take take your lumps for a year. You take come for a year and you're Kansas. You'll be back in the swing and in short order here See I don't I don't at least they'll be huge headlines you know. This is an important case. Kansas among many others that the delay is working through here. I mean that will be significant. Whatever we get the next steps of that and and punishments come down which won't be until as a reminder that that will not happen my expectation till after the season but in advance of next season but I just don't see Kansas getting the reset. If it happened it would be because bill self op to walkway. I'm not I'm not convinced that's going would be the case here. That's just that's my personal reading on the situation there I I. I think I'll put it this way like I. I think that Kansas staying on with Bill Self and twenty twenty one is more likely than and I'm not saying this is going to happen. I'm just saying the likeliness of it. Ah I would put that more likely than analysts will wade in Arizona with Shawn Miller Etcetera Etcetera. That's just that's how I see it. Yeah I don't see Canes Firing Bill Self I don't I regardless of how hard the incident hits Kansas. I think they'll sell will remain the coach canes as if he wants to remain the Koji Canes if he decides he wants to pursue an MBA opportunity. Stan Antonio or somewhere else that's available and and it offered to him and that's what he wants to do. Then that makes I could see that but I don't see McCain's as firing bill self not over what has happened today and we could look fifteen years from now and things have taken the wrong turn and then you know. That's the way most coaching careers in. But I don't think bill canes as I would bet heavily against anything happening with this. NC double a situation that leads to Kansas Fire and bill self even if they hit him with a year long suspension. If I'm running Kansas I go you know what we'll just sit out a year. We'll let somebody else coach the team on an interim basis and then we'll have bill. We'll have a hall hall of fame coach a year from now once again. I think that's certainly a more likely scenario. So we close every Friday podcast with the final four in one. That's where I pick four games James and and and or at least I just. I grabbed four games for us to pick against the spread. norlander gets and one. If you're keeping up with the season totals I'm still behind norlander. Twenty one eighteen in one. I'm seventeen twenty two and one. Oh no no. Let's I'm twenty wanting nineteen in one. I went one one four last week. We've been let me update honest here. You're giving me a win. Don't give me the win. I WANNA earn nineteen and one and I'm seventeen in twenty two and one so theoretically this could be the week in where I catch you up all the hold on one second. Here's a twenty nine hundred and one. That's forty total games. Two thousand seventeen. The wanted to make sure the math added up. We counted frog games. Yes this could be. This could well be the weekend. I what do you got first game fired at me okay. We're GONNA do my four games in the order in which they will tip off so we will start Saturday noon eastern Creighton at number eleven butler. You can watch it on F S One we do not have point spreads when we record these. It's Friday eleven forty four eastern right now so we use the Kim Palm Projections and Kim Palm has made Butler and eight point favorite. Can any of us even possibly go against Butler after after this has been the Tony Hinkle. PODCAST special. I don't think so I don't think although Creighton twelve and to both losses respectable at Michigan by ten and then they got drubbed by San Diego State Aztecs are just on a roll we will get to their game because if you didn't pick it that's going to be my game here here at the end of the segment but they lost by like thirty one points earlier in the season other other than that Crayton's good twelve and two. They rocked Marquette on Wednesday night to get the first win in the big east. So Greg McDermott. I'd say pretty quietly has Has got a team that's ended up tournament quality and just hasn't gotten a lot of love. Give you a little bit of love here and I guarantee you CREIGHTON. You get this win over the weekend We can give you a little bit of shine on Sunday nights podcast but having said that Butler learn eight points at home noon Tip Fox sports one Saturday. I'm GONNA take the bulldogs by eight It's just a really really good team. That's all I got for you. I'm taking Butler. I mean no no no no I'm taking creighton okay. Eight and credence on ranked in the eight people. I have them in the top twenty five and one. The resume is strong like you said. Twelve into only losses to Michigan San Diego State Bowler meantime thirteen and one laws at Baylor. By point point picked ache in the big east now number seven at Kim Palm. They got four quadrant one. We talked about this in the last podcast by the way these quadrant things like the net rankings. Change every single day which can change your number of quadrant victories. Every single day at multiple people on Thursday say I think Trivia time was wrong on Wednesday podcasts because you said only canes Sim Butler had four quadrant one wins. But I'm looking at it right now. DUKES got four quadrant. One wins that's an incorrect attributed. I had to correct somebody. I said that is not incorrect. Trivia time because at the time of the Trivia Time Duke did not have four quadrant one wins but then Georgetown from Wednesday to Thursday day jumped from outside of the fifty two inside of the top fifty. Suddenly dukes neutral court win over doors. Town is a quadrant. One win so now. Duke does have four quadrant. One wins as well. But but tribute I`Ma Lizzy that was a correct accurately reported trivia type right now. Four teams have four quadrant. One Win Butler Kansas San Diego. You go state in Duke. I'm GonNa Take Creighton plus the eight on the road inside Tony. HINKLE fieldhouse next game. Eight Saturday four thirty eastern number eight Auburn at Mississippi State. You can watch it on the SEC Network Auburn. According to Kim Tom is minus. Mine is one. We've ever had team from power conference. Get to January without a loss and receive less recognition or pub hub than the Auburn Tigers season particularly after coming off a final four season and not just that final four season in which the Tigers very very nearly and maybe very well should have defeated the eventual national champion Virginia Cavaliers Bruce Pearl has got a very good team here Mississippi Mississippi state. I have no idea man. No one knows how good this team is or isn't nine and three. Get the game on It's home floor Auburn's favored by one percent palm. I will take the Tigers in a road environment here able to watch this game. Keep an eye They got some good players. But just keep it on the Freshman Wing Isaac Coral Very Fun player Really solid gets done inside. They don't necessarily need to rely on him. at all three levels but But he's really fun. I'll take the Tigers to remain undefeated. Auburn listen twelve hundred. Twelve hundred zero Rowen over curly ring teams. They've they've played a ranked team all season. That's right Best Best Team they played is probably NC state so and that was on a neutral literal so at Mississippi state is probably the toughest test of the season. So far misery stood by the way they have nick weatherspoon back now. He missed the first ten games of the season because of the suspension averaging nine points in twenty one minutes in those two games but mystery takes only one in one in those games lost in New Mexico state three days before for Christmas. So that's not great although New Mexico state's not not a bad team. That's perfectly reasonable basketball team but in a semi home game. You're not supposed to lose that. Mississippi state date I'm GonNa take the bulldogs inside Humphrey Coliseum as a slight underdog to upset Auburn and give Auburn. Its first loss is the season you just watch college basketball as recently as last night. You know you go on the road to play a quality opponent even if their quality opponents unranked Dick it can be a tour and I think Auburn is going to be It'll be it'll be a tough environment. Tough game certainly over Cam win it. But I'll take Mississippi state plus one and just to be different remember. I'm trying to catch a Saturday ten PM eastern number Thirteen San Diego State at Utah State. You can watch it on. CBS Sports Network. Kim has made San Diego State. Yes ticks a one point favorite on the road I will take Utah State at home here. giving us so we could have no undefeated teams by the Saturday night. But I'm going to say that Auburn will be the a final undefeated team in college basketball. Utah State just got wacked at UNLV by seventeen points on Wednesday night kind of bizarre and if Utah State loses this game against San Diego state on Saturday what will have here for sure is two consecutive seasons in which the preseason brought us a mountain west team thought to be you know to see three seat. Foresee caliber lassie's it was Nevada and Nevada made the tournament with with some ease but it was nowhere near as good as people thought it was going to be Utah State was anticipated to be. That team has has not yet been that team but to be fair Keta has been consistently injured. And that's been a problem overall Getting healthy will go a long way here. I will take the the aggies at home in Logan. Obviously a tough place to play San Diego states for real I still think they're for real whether or not they win or lose this game but gave me the aggies. I'm going to stay consistent and just take the underdog unranked team against the undefeated team in back to back games so I took Mississippi state plus the one I will also take Utah State plus the one but I was in studio we had Utah State. UNLV on on our Air Tuesday night and that was surprising not necessarily that UNLV one but but but that will surprise that UNLV one is also surprising but like just dominate doc. The the entire game and so now Utah State is thirteen and three they got win over. LSU In Florida the losses to St Mary's Byu and UNLV meantime San Diego go states fourteen. And you can't say enough about them. They started ninety seven. Ken bomb all the way up to number nineteen. That's the jump of seventy eight spots in just fourteen games number number one of the net and they're starting three players who had never played a minute for San Diego state before the start of the season one of them is Malcolm Flan Washington state transfer. He's the leading score. So I do think San Diego State is legit. I won't be surprised if they're fifteen. You know when we wake up on Sunday morning but I'm just going to take the home. Underdogs folks against the undefeated teams Mississippi State Plus One in this one Utah State plus one. My last game Sunday one thirty PM. Eastern Number Twelve Michigan Michigan at number four Michigan State. You can watch it on. CBS Michigan State minus seven. According to Kim Palm big time Sunday game here got the NFL playoff offs coming this weekend. awesome fun weekend sports here but this This game will obviously be what you want to watch leading into or parallel to those NFL PLAYOFF OFF Games. Cast returned on Thursday night Michigan State was able to deviate Illinois without any kind of issue here Winston was dealing with a with a bruise in his knees Xavier. Tillman was terrific. In that game. I thought Aaron Henry was very solid and then Winston just getting back into the mix there. He had a team high twenty one in Michigan State's win over Illinois. Good good signs. I mean just all around Michigan state put on a terrific performance and I think it will continue. I think when we talk on Sunday nights podcast Among plenty the other topics we can get to. My prediction is that we will be discussing Michigan state rounding into form and looking all the more like that team we thought it would be in the preseason. preseason so I will take sparty to cover the seven at home against the wolverines spartan like you said sparked the spartans like you said they won six straight since losing to do they beat Illinois Thursday night there now. Eleven three overall number. Four it Kim Palm Michigan's interesting. I think there's a spot for them. They obviously start seventy. No unranked starts seventy no be CREIGHTON. North Carolina Beacon Saga Win The battle for Atlantis. Suddenly they're in the top ten and then they immediately lose three three the next four now. They weren't bad losses but they did lose three the next four at that point. They're ten and now they're ten and three on the season so the question is like okay. What are are they are they? The team that started seven Oh knocking out creighton and Gonzaga or they the team. That's you know that didn't subsequently lost the rea- four because the last two games are just nothing engaged by games against bad opponents. I think the truth is probably somewhere in the middle. Probably not as good as we thought they were when they started seven now probably not not as average as they looked when they lost three or four Hard to envision them going in to the Breslin Center and winning and on Sunday but I think I said the exact same thing about duke when it went into the Breslin center not too long ago and they dominated Michigan State. Pretty much from tip to finish this Michigan State. Eighteen does look different. They seem to be starting to play more like what we thought they were when we made them the preseason number one but for for our purposes I will take Michigan plus the seven just to be different from you. Don't be what is this just like. Why don't I watched Watson pick the game the way I don't I don't care what you want? You don't I don't know if I want you to pick with your heart. You're just picking me picking different from. Let me just pick different to try and catch up in the race. You've already got some other ones. That feels like you WanNa Take Michigan. State I don't have a heart okay. Can't pick with your heart if you don't have a heart I'm going. I'm cool with Michigan. The wolverines for two reasons A.. I want to be different from you. Be I WANNA competitive game on Sunday. That's the way I wanNA spend my Sunday watching a competitive game in Michigan. Stay inside the number by definition would give us a competitive game. What's your what's your an one norrland Orlando? Okay so it was GONNA BE SAN DIEGO'S AT UTAH. Say if you didn't select it but you did select to just a quick heads up on. Saturdays is not going to be the game. Georgia plays at Memphis on. CBS on one o'clock on Saturday. You'RE GONNA have Anthony Edwards at Memphis keep an eye on. That could be a little bit quirky there And then a couple other a a couple of games of note of interest Villanova at Marquette Iowa versus Penn state Those fly into the radar. And it's a huge weekend in the so con you've got the four. Best teams blinked other. UNC Greensboro Wofford. And then East Tennessee state firm. And keep it on all those. There's GonNa be a lot to monitor here and I think we're GONNA have a lot to talk about Sunday's podcasts. Because there's a bunch of intriguing match-ups too hard weekend to kind of to forecast to see what we're GONNA get. We're GONNA happen but my game and I thought you were GONNA give us game but you didn't my game that I'm GonNa give you. Here is West West Virginia at Kansas West Virginia off to a tremendous start eleven and one talked about previously and then Kansas right now the number one team in the Massey composite number two at Ken Palm. Tom Sitting at ten and two coming off that dominating win last weekend against Stanford. This is the big twelve opener. CAMPAU projects Kansas Eight ten point favorites so that that was the other reason why had this is my My backup game because that's a relatively big line there West Virginia at Kansas who you got. I'll take West Virginia plus the ten. I mean that's I don't think West Virginia's GonNa win the game but that's a big number with a team. That just beat Ohio state in Cleveland. Ohio so West Virginia plus to make sense. MM-HMM I WANNA be like you. I don't want to be different. I also have the mountaineers plus ten so I think Kansas to win but I think it's going to be a close game and in West Virginia is going to have some success inside. I do like their chances here. very good weekend. hoops people We've had some just okay ones over the past three or four weekends but we are loaded up Saturday and even Sunday So there so there you have it we disagree on three of the five. We have agreement on West Virginia to cover the ten. We have agreement agreement that Utah State will win at home over the state shots Devon Down Schaus to justice South Carolina shells to Terry Teagle. He's lead chefs to learn Schaus.
