"Course I had the great fortune of coaching quantities better than Barry Thomas young for a guy who never played outside linebacker, he had to coach him in his first job. I was very fortunate to have some really, really talented players. We're talking to Sylvester crew recently selected to the college football Hall of Fame and courage crew I heard you recently when we were together at this event in Birmingham with several of your teammates talk about what it was like during that time being among the first. You had a prism into Alabama football with your dad who was the team chaplain and actually a really good football player in his own right. What was it like for those who don't know that part of your story to be among the first black players at a place that we all know was in the news for the terrible racism and segregation that had gone on. With Paul, it was a unique experience. First of all, going out to the university of growing up in Tuscaloosa. 5 minutes away from the campus, and yet never having really been associated with the universe of Alabama. The close of that kind of being associated with just going out there on camera to the coliseum to watch a playoff basketball game in the state tournament. And that was about it. I remember when I was a freshman, the guys who come from out of town would ask me where buildings were on camp. They have no idea where things are. I might as well have been going to selling kale. It was that big of a belief. It was almost like going to school across country. But it was significant to me because of a chance to play the coach by. She has to win. But I knew also that it was my way of contributing to the civil rights movement and to the changes that we were going through at the time. I had Ann and James Lawrence was a way chief lieutenant to doctor king was associated with embark with him. I saw a lot of people relatives of my Friends of mine who had marched with doctor king and we had made the physical sacrifices on the front lines of the civil rights movement during the 60s. And I was too young to be in the marches at the time, but when a time came to go to college, this was my contribution to the civil rights movement. And I think that's where all of us felt. We wanted to get our education. We wanted to perform well. We felt like we had to set a standard for those coming behind us and we always felt a responsibility to be excellent because of the sacrifices that our ancestors and those who come before us had made to give us this opportunity. Coach krumm, it was nearly 20 years ago when the entire sports world set its eyes on start film Mississippi when you broke the color barrier in the southeastern conference and it was considered one of those indelible moments in history that would in most of our minds change the direction of blackhead coaches, not only in college football, but around football in general, today it doesn't look, I'll let you answer the question. Like a lot has changed. You still see very few blackhead coaches. Your thoughts on where we are today. Well, there's hasn't been enough change. Because I see it in the NFL. I see it to college level where qualified black men are not getting the opportunity to be head coaches. And that's disappointing. At the same time, I think the guys that black coaches that have gotten the opportunity I'm very happy for them as I see the new culture Notre-Dame, I'm hoping that they don't feel the pressure of having to make sure that what's happening to represent all black coaches and I felt that responsibility. I felt like that I could make any cannabis mistakes, even in press conferences that anything that I did or see it would reflect negatively. I mean, anything that I'd in a mistake that I made would reflect negatively on those, you might have an opportunity to follow in my footsteps. But I am disappointed that there is not I thought by now that would be more to hit coaches throughout the country throughout the landscape of college football and the NFL as well. You mentioned the pressure that you felt described what that was like. Paul, the biggest, the biggest thing is for anybody, regardless of who you are. When you're a first time he had coach. You don't know what you don't know. And I used to tell systems that until young guys now, there's a long way from sitting in front of that disk to sitting behind that disk as he had coached. So you have to prepare. You have to be ready to take to take on duties that you did not know the head coach had to deal with. Way beyond the football aspect. The football part of being a head coach is the easiest part. It's all the other things you have. You responsible for so many for so many people. And being a firsthand blackhead coach black coaches and black people who are the first have to deal with things that nobody else has to deal with. And they have nobody else they can talk to about it because nobody else understands why coaches have to have a tough job, but they got no idea what it's like to be in those positions and be a black man because things come at you from a different perspective that you have to deal with that nobody else knows anything about and you have nobody else to go to to talk to about those things. So you have to stand for yourself no matter no matter how much help you get no matter how many advice you get from people. Nobody else truly understands. Coach finally, before we go, I know a lot of people offered you advice. Was there any one piece of advice that you were able to gain that meant the most to you in that very difficult period? Well, the person I did talk to quite often was by the Ross was a great mentor to me. He was my. He was he gave me a chance to be on offensive coordinator when I was in that football league and I continue to stay in touch with him and I followed a lot of it feels examples, as far as the details of things. And the message he always gave you to me, you know, he would always tell me this. Hey, if you just be yourself, be who you are and everything will be okay. And I'm fortunate in the fact and one of the things that I was blessed with in the stable, you know, I got hired by Lara tamba and. The administration was there at the time. I got a chance to do things my way. It didn't work out the way I wanted it to, but I'm very proud of the fact that I was able to make decisions and do things the way that I wanted to do them. The plan that I had to develop, mister state, we had a chance to do that. And I think for the most part, we accomplished.

"Podcast, getting better, stories of mental health on iHeart, Apple podcasts and Spotify. And we welcome all of you back and it is with such great pleasure to welcome here on this Monday, doctor king day, the former head coach at Missouri state, as well as the all American at Alabama and just recently elected to the college football Hall of Fame, coach Sylvester croom joining us. Coach, good afternoon. Thank you for your time and congratulations. I know it's something that you know in your speech. You'll thank all the people that helped get you there, but regardless of what you're going to say, we are so proud to have seen that news and to say hello to you. Paul, it's very exciting and something that I honestly did not anticipate even after I was a way of the nomination. It's almost 50 years. It's you just don't know what to expect, but I am excited to be a part of it. And as you say, I have a lot of people who contributed to directly to me being in position to be able to receive this other. I know it's still many months off, but I would think it's something that I'm sure you've heard from a lot of your friends and family members, but when you heard the news, what other than surprise maybe in a little bit of happiness, what went through your mind as you reflected back? Well, a lot of things, but especially I had to of course think about coach Brian and going through the university and how things that are playing did work out. I went there with the idea I wanted to be a tying or linebacker. And neither one of those things stand out because there were guys who came alone. They were just better at those positions of a particular wood rollout which is fantastic. And I was in the process of finding somewhere to play. I think in 1972, I was showing up at brag one day, I was starting tight in and I showed up one day at practice and looked on the Ross that I was a third string left tackle. And that's a way to bind the things back then and it was a tough year, 72 for me because I just, there was there was nowhere for me to play. And after the season was over with, I talked with coach Brian and he wanted to move me in the center and I asked him one course I coach you think I can be good at it. And he said, yes. And he said, I think you can be very good at it. And that's the reason I moved was because his confidence in me is what gave me the courage to do it. Coach what was it that sent a fledgling player in a fairly short period of time to a first team all American well, I went to Alabama with David coach Brad because I played on losing high school team. And I thought I'd never thought of myself as a great player. But the one thing I did always have taken pride in was that was in my work ethic and my competitive nature. And I wanted to be good. I wanted to be the best. And I wanted to get at a position where I had a chance to be best. Now, always like having the ball in my hands and that was a good way to do it too. So I even though I would catch it a football I had the ball in my hand every snap. And once I got into the position and felt good about it, I mean, I worked extremely hard to be the best trying to be the best center in the country because I'd wanted to be a great player. And it also motivated me of being around guys like John Mitchell and Wilbur Jackson and musso and Hannah. John Hannah had to have tremendous effect on me. I don't even know if he knows it, but just playing with him as a sophomore, even though I didn't, I wasn't playing a lot. Just watching the way the guy worked it, right. It was unbelievable to me. And my going into my junior, especially my senior year, I took the same approach. I made up my mind that I was going to play every snap on offense, my senior year. That's what I wanted to do. And in order to do that, I had to be in the best shape of my life, and it probably was the best shape of my life. And that's what motivated me, Paul was wanting to be a part of a national championship team that wanted to be the best player outpost that could be. And coach after your playing days ended, you ended up spending a long time on coach Bryan staff. You stated Alabama when ray Perkins came in, what were those what were the early days like transitioning from one of his players to one of coast Brian's coaches? Well, I thought it was tough playing a plane for good for him, but I found out real quickly it was even tougher coaching for him. He was very, very demanding. Of course, great attention to detail. I mean, you had to and anything and I'll learn real early that when you're a coach coach Bryant was grooming us to be he had told you, we were the head coaches of our position. Whatever happened in your position, it was your responsibility. Go to bed. They didn't go to class. It was your fault. They didn't play well. It was your responsibility. Let me put it that way. So you had to take care of your players and make sure that they were to function. It was yours possibility to develop them. And I learned that early on and I enjoyed it. I had a great players. I'll tell you what I had to EJ junior just got inducted into the college football Hall of Fame last year. And then Mike Pitts who recently passed away head guys like who didn't make all American like geared an arrow and Russ wood and then of course I had the great fortune of coaching quantities better than Barry Thomas young for a guy who never played outside linebacker, he had to coach him in his first job..

"So mister krum joining us shortly we'll talk about Tim being selected to the college football Hall of Fame and a few other things. Billy is in Philly and you are on the air hello Billy. Hi, nice to talk to you again. First time this year, I want you to know that I listen regularly. I can't get in all the time, but I think you've got a great challenge. You made my days very happier. Thank you. You wrote me. Short note, because I sent you something that's probably one of the highlights of my year and thank you for doing what you're doing. I call because the I saw on the news that you were attacked by we were attacked by a Midwestern football basketball player football player who said that going to the southern school is way safe time. I'm a PhD English teacher. But I've never told an English department said only an honest program. I taught in two eastern schools that are pretty good. Everybody recognizes, and they have it's hard to get into them. And I taught honor students. That means I got the best fresher. Then I got them again. They were juniors. They're seniors. I decided that my young daughter who is 8. And my wife ought to have an experience and seeing a Salvation conference with Logan. So I just said, I'm going to take you to Mississippi. So I called up the guy who runs the honest program in Sally barksdale program here. He said, when he visit with me, we're going to change ideas. So we went down and we did it. So again, that was fun. But I saw him and I saw his program. The barksdale program is so much better than the programs I was teaching and northeast. It's just not comparable. They have more money. They have better teachers. They're more focused. A big state school educates everybody. That doesn't mean that everybody gets the same education. And they were very fussy and are still fussy. About who they take and what they do with them. I know some of the teachers because I've met them at academic conferences. They're just absolutely frustrated. These who go to Mississippi because they get a chance to do their graduate work, but also the requirement, if you want to come down here and write books, you're going to teach our best honor students and they do it. It's a terrific program. And I think that this is completely missed in the northeast, where they just think they're better because they think they're better. They don't really actually work at it. And all of this works at it. I believe these other schools do, too. I know a little bit about Alabama. Nothing really technical about the other schools. That's what I wanted to say on that subject. You're talking about Kevin thibodeau's comments, the organ player. And I did react to it because. I don't know everything you know, but I do know about this university that he was referring to. I spent a lot of time inside that university in classrooms and knowing people who do similar things to what you've done up east. And it was just such a lazy dishonest remark. And I don't know what I don't know all the context of it. I don't really know why I said it, but the south is labeled like that. And I grew up in a northeast family. I heard it then, for my own family members, so I understand how that perception has permeated many, many places up there. And you know it better than I do, because I didn't go to an Ivy League school or teach at one. But there is an attitude up there that is hard to scrape away. But I do appreciate your comments very much. It's really good to hear from you. Matt is up next in Kentucky. Hey Matt. Hey, Paul, how are you doing? We are well. Thank you. First I got to say is I apologize to you because being you've gotten a little bit of an argument during the Kentucky Georgia game like prior to the Kentucky George game and I was asking why you didn't get enough respect. And you do all that who do we beat? Thing, but I do want to apologize if you were completely right. We lost some stay. We lost Tennessee. So a lot of good year, but we lost to those schools. I do want to ask you about Kentucky's football recruiting this year. What do you think about it? And how was Mark stoops, really changing the focus of Kentucky football? Well, Matthew is. And I think he's doing it through recruiting. I can survive this call. You know his staff. And he's got a couple of what I would call elite recruiters on that staff who have gone into Ohio, who have gone into other places and made a significant difference. The frustrating part of Kentucky is for whatever reason it seems like for all the hard work that is accomplished. They give it away every year in one or two games. And that has to stop before if Kentucky's ever going to make that final advance on the summit. But it is still a fantastic program. And I appreciate your call. We have somebody very special joining us in a minute. Coach Sylvester crew joins us on this Martin Luther King celebration holiday. We'll also talk about him being selected to the college football Hall of.

"People don't give me enough credit though. I mean for being 85 years old, I think I look pretty young. No, you're not 85, but when you lost your hair, you know, that was your hair. That happened right after that picture was taken. It literally fell out. Well, your hair is great in this picture. I mean, you're a good-looking guy in this picture on the top of the line. Or you could have been you could have been able to sidekick. I could have been. It's too bad I wasn't. Well, I, Paul, I hope you have a good show. I don't know if I could be coming over now. What about our food? I would not have done what I ended up doing. I would have gotten would have gone to college. You really would have got hey, you really would have gotten a sitcom. Yeah, no. It wouldn't have been argument. It's just better off. What's that? What's that saying, thank God for unanswered prayers. Maybe so. You might be right. Same with me playing ball. I would have probably gone to hell for all the time. I had a good but I didn't say one thing you said in there, Paul, already. You said that I said I was better than Ted Williams. Paul I never said that. I got to take. I never said that and you know it. All I said was, you asked me, Jim, do you think you could have been as good as Ted Williams? And I said, Paul, I think, is a chance I might have been, had I not gotten hurt. That's all I said, because I had that kind of cognition how good I could have been. Did you realize you in the Ted Williams is considered the greatest hitter of all time? And what does that matter? You didn't see me hit, Paul. You didn't see me here. Can I tell you a story about a great poop in Tesco's real quick? I let you go. Are you suggesting to me that you could have been better than Ted Williams? Or as good as Ted wins? I'm suggesting I might have been. All I'm saying, I didn't say I was. I never said I was better than today. I just said, I might have been had a not gotten hurt because I could really hit a baseball poll very well. That's all I'm saying. You have to understand what you realize what you see. It's crazy was he's still just a human man. Yeah, he may be a human being, but he's the greatest hitter of all time. How do you know somebody didn't come along? That got hurt that might have been better than him. At least it's good. Oh, that's all I'm saying. Okay, I'm gonna leave it here because I'm gonna leave you with this Paul. I believe with all my heart and I've been playing the matrix, I would have get over 400. I know that I believe that. Okay, well then that's all I can say. I'm not saying I'm better than anybody. I just said, I know how good I was. Okay. I know how good I was and hitting the baseball. And I think you could hear it in my what? Jim, we have to go to the right. Hey, thank you for the call. I think that's interesting to think about. What he said there, he said, I'm not going to put words in his job, but had he not been hurt. He could have hit 400. Randy, how many people have hit 400 and Major League Baseball history? Not many. We're going to take a break, we'll digest that. We have Sylvester croom coming up here in a couple of minutes and we will really look forward to.

"I don't know if you pay attention to media days, but it popped out at me when I was thinking back to this season. Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it. Henry David Thoreau. That embodies this team. They never embrace the success. They never acknowledge the success. You know what they kept doing? They just kept chopping wood. They just kept chopping wood. This program will never change from that quote. Because when you start looking for success, you start acknowledging success is when you lose it. Shopping wood, that's exactly what happened. How about no one Smith? Star pass rusher? How about him? He said, you know what? Get me some more of that choppin wood. I'm coming back. So really, it was such a blast. You know, it was really, I thought, quite poignant. I saw a picture of this. All of four former head coaches were there as well. Think about that. And considering all three of them or three of the four were fired, ray golf, Jim donnan, and Mark Rick were pictured with coach fin stilly, of course, led the national championship quest 41 years ago. They were all pictured together. And where else do you get fired? As the head coach, and still come back to celebrate one of the biggest moments in the school's modern history. So that happened over the weekend in Athens. Greg sanky. Be careful HCC. Great thank you. We'll get an expanded playoff with or without you. Thank you over the weekend, asked the crowd, hey, 14 form bad, were they? You like that? This is all about Jim Phillips, the ACC commissioner, he's new. And speaking for his league, he said, we have significant concerns surrounding a proposed expansion model, though we'd be supportive of a future expansion once and if these concerns are addressed, a membership believes that we have a responsibility in looking at the CFP. And college football from a holistic. That's a word I don't hear very often. I see that on my medicine sometimes, but I don't see it on perspective and not just whether to add more teams to a playoff collectively. We have much larger issues facing us, and whether to expand the CFP early by two years. Commissioner Phillips will love to respect I didn't see you at the playoffs this year. Did I miss I went to was in Dallas? I was in Indianapolis, had friends who went to Miami. We didn't see you. We didn't see you or your teams. Maybe you should be concerned more about that. And being holistic. Whatever that means. Auburn. Would somebody tell me how the auburn tigers are not the number one team in the country? They got more first place votes than Gonzaga. They just missed out. We will talk to Bruce pearl later. Something tells me he's probably not heartbroken, but it is a missed opportunity for the voters to get to recognize and respect. The auburn tigers. Silvester chrome, former Mississippi head coach, longtime assistant at Alabama. Selected to the college, football, Hall of Fame. And we will talk to him in 25 minutes, and I can not wait. He's always one of my favorite guests. I saw him recently. Just one of the coolest people on the face of the earth. David ibbin will join us not to insinuate he's not cool. Matt Hayes, and Bruce burle, joining us in the final hour. Let's get to your phone calls. Now, at 8.55, one more thing I wanted to mention, I was really sad to see this over the weekend. Somebody I covered when I was in college and early in my career, Joby hall, the legendary coach at the university of Kentucky led the cats to the 90 1978 national championship and three final fours overall. He replaced. Adolf wrote, one of the toughest replacement successions in the history of sports and he was really really an outstanding coach and even a better human being. Got a chance to interview him a number of times. And beloved by Kentucky people everywhere. Let's start the show with Jim from Tuscaloosa. Paul? Yes, Jim. I don't know what I'm doing. I must be, I must be crazy. I got your book out. I never read the book. You said it. Tell me 7 years ago and you wrote beautiful things. I was the best guy. You actually said I was the best hour in the history of the show. Did you know that I vaguely remember. That what you said? I was the best college. Yeah, I'm sure if I said that to you, Jim, I'm in it at the time. I mean this. I see the picture. I never look at this, but you had a beautiful nice really nice looking sister. She shows her with Santa Claus. Oh, yeah. And Paul, you are a good-looking guy. I mean, you actually look like Elvis a little bit you. Clear eyes. Beautiful complexion. This sounds terrible because I can't run away from what people are staring at right now, but at that age, man I could bring it now. I don't know what happened, but I really, hey, I can say the girl as well all over you. In this picture, you look like you about 18, what 18? Yeah, I was about 18 there. Good-looking guy. I mean, really good-looking guy. I was just looking at his hours. I am. It's probably too bad that we were not running buddies at the time, but you were too young for that.

But I just had to call, because when I saw the end up see, I never looked at all this stuff when you sent me the root. I don't really 54. And it was unbelievable. The things you said that I didn't know. I knew you'd turn out the best call of it. You said other things. You know, by that change the show, I could change my wife tells me the first thing you say usually is the right thing, not the convoluted verb. I believe that. Yeah, I believe that. Yeah, without a doubt, I believe that. Then you get angry and you start changing your network. I said you were the best. Of history, what I said there. Well, I said, you know what I'm saying? I showed about you. You're the best radio talk show host in history and I think I thought of you today. I said that I talked to Danny shared at about something and we always bring you up when we're talking on the phone. Oh, really? Yeah. We use this. I'm interested in what he agrees. I mean, he thinks you and legend are, I know it. I love Danny. Everybody loves that. When did you talk to him about it? Hey. Danny, we miss you, man. I love Danny here. My sister is crazy about listening to Danny Sheridan and every time you have him own she said, please call me and tell me if he's going to be young. I mean, that's just as crazy. Of course, everybody, everybody. I know if you can't have him so be it. But I'm just saying what I believe. I mean, we might try to sneak him on one day while nobody's watching. Well, I would think you should do that. And also, Tim Brando, but I mean, Danny is just, he's great. He's funny. He's everything. He's just and he's knowledgeable. He's a classic electric guy. He's elected to the left. Never met him. Personally, no. I don't care to meet all these people. You know what I mean? I just don't know why I do that, but I just don't care about meeting me. What's the big deal? If I talk to you, it's the same as I know, I know, you know what I mean? You're right about that. I know I'm right about this. I know Danny shared in it. He knows me. You know what I mean? Just seeing him in person. What's that gonna change? That's not gonna make him no meaning better. It's just gonna make you see what I look like. Yeah, no, it's true. And nobody that's not important. No, it's not. It's really not important. That's not important unless you look like I did back when I was 18. Or like I do and have all my life.

"Sure he was a great center. But i don't remember hearing much about him other than that. The other character. That i wanted to talk to you about was a particular game when tennessee played kentucky and tennessee had a player howard. Bayne who absolutely tour kentucky up rebounded shot well and i never heard from howard bayne again and so i wanted to to sort of Jog your memory a bit too to see what you remember about those two players. And maybe your notions about Listening on radio versus watching on tv. Ron thank you very much. I don't remember the second player i do. Remember the first Radio is a much more vivid description. And i can tell you this. The game's over. The course of my life that i've listened to on the radio. I never forget when. I'm sitting here on a daily basis talking about something that happened ten years ago twenty years ago or forty or fifty years ago. It's much easier to recall from having been sitting at home or in a car on a dark country road listening to vivid descriptions of a particular moment or game as opposed to watching especially today. And i don't mean to be having a offering a sermon here on on the confusing world that we live in but we are. We are not watching a game today in the same fashion that we were listening to the radio at some other point in time. Radio is a very personal personal medium issue and the speaker television. You're watching it. You can be carrying on a conversation you can be looking at your ipad. you can be texting. You can be doing all of those things so it's harder to recall so so i think that is why many of us especially those of us in the second half of our our lives. Are you have such such better memories of those things early on then we do. Have maybe something that we saw year to go now. Certainly there are moments that we all we all remember. But but i think old time radio was the best and even now the the radio announcers are having to compete With with television for every single game anyway. Thanks for the call really appreciated. That was very very interesting. David is up next. And you're on the air. Hello david argue. We are doing great. Thank you so much also. Hey i was calling to congratulate games in madison. Yeah before you even go on. James madison upset oklahoma today. Which was the number one team in the women's world series in oklahoma city and it is one of the bigger upsets we have. We have seen in that world series and many many years. They they still have to. They still can to double elimination. But it was a stunner. Right and i I wanna wish georgia. Good luck. An alabama good luck tonight in the in their getting i. It's awesome and i know you cut off earlier. You hadn't made him us against each other today. That's fine but matt jim okay. Beat the teacher. Roll tide get credit for a very lurid imagination. Let's continue with h in florida. You're on the air. Go right ahead. Big eight some florida you got to. How are you good. I wanna talk about the. I'm pumped up for college football this year and i wanna ask you. A question does schedule. Favorite fraud Especially began the season leading up to that first game against alabama. How do you like our chances. I don't think it's that great. I mean if you look at the florida schedule. Which i just reach for here. Florida atlantic south florida in alabama. I think it's helpful to have alabama at home alabama early. Hasn't a more difficult. Path was miami. I but i don't see. I don't see florida winning that game right now. I don't know about you. Well you think what kind of outfits we might run the wishbone or an option. That new quarterback Yeah he's capable of doing anything. But listen i it's a little bit early But that that's a that's a really tough game. And after that tennessee and kentucky keep your eye on that kentucky game after a very difficult stretch anyway. We are going to continue with more phone calls. Here don't forget. I mentioned sylvester crewmen a few minutes. Ed is up next. Hey go right ahead called is doing what not got questions or are you talking about the radio mccaren. Listen to the kiwi. Take you basketball neither week man.

"His farewell tour and and it may be the worst basketball season he's ever had from a competition standpoint because no matter who they're playing they're gonna wanna beat him the very last time you're right thanks for the call. It's really an interesting conversation about that You know what is the best way to leave. And i nobody knows and i say this as somebody who has covered a lot of bad farewells. It is so painful i mean. It's it's really tough to watch a coach in his final days. And he's fighting for his job or she is and you know it's about to be over and then they finally push you out or they you know. There's just no good way to do it. And it's not only in sports. A lot of professions including the one. I'm in and patch said is so true i mean. This was the quintessential way to do it. But then again how many people can do it on. Mike shishki terms. I mean there's i can think of more than one other person right now. Who could call the shot. And i know a lot of fans watching and listening or hoping. He doesn't anytime soon. Let's get back to the calls. And check in with mac who was up next in texas at by mom. Paul allen i do i take football noah you question paul. You brought up gone terms. What about people tell by say name is an ex team that move up and accuracy and take the place of nick sabin when he retired. You think nick sabin can go out on his own terms.

I'm getting weary of hearing a lively going to be make savin the ipad. Well paul well even if they do that doesn't mean anything Other people are beaten sabin. Only let me think of some of the coaches who were beaten. Nick sabin and we'll see how it worked out less. Miles beat nick sabin a couple of times. He sitting at home watching the show today. Hugh freeze beat nick. Sabin a couple of times. He's a he's at liberty. gus malzahn. Beat nick sabin a couple of times. He's now at a lesser place. You know what it it is not. It is no guarantee that you'd be nick. Sabin the only one who has beat. Nick sabin lately. I'm beat him. A nine thousand nine hundred and talk a big game and got got his got his job broken last year when lsu returned when they had their rematch nick sabin wipe the floors with and dabo. Sweeney has done okay. But he's now lost twice in the playoffs. So i'm trying to think of that guy who beat nick. Sabin that prospered from it. Can you tell me that person from nick saving in jimbo fishery jimbo fishing. Not better again now. no no. That doesn't mean i if he knows him so well what he lose by twenty eight last year. Can you explain that to me. Let's take a break mortar. Calm the coaches. Who nick sabin the best or are his former assistance and everyone knows what the record is. Oh come on that..

It's all about duke He said he was not going to recruit this year. his assistants and the head coach in waiting. I it's john scheiber. i think internist so. She had coached for a long time. He's he's been with the ten years. I think and coach k. Said i would follow him anywhere. I would go to war with him anywhere. I mean it doesn't get any better than that. Paul no upset. I i can give you five or six. Examples of coaches retiring and fighting has broken out on on the staff and it turned out to be a disaster. And that wasn't the case here and you know you don't see this in big business very often because the top companies usually i saw one of the big banks last week you may have seen it. They basically name to people who are who are going to be the heir. Apparent causes vision. And i think it's a lesson and i'm you know there are some other major figures out there who are getting closer to retirement and i'm willing to bet you that they are watching this very closely to see how to do it correct. And by the way when he announced it yesterday. It wasn't like that big of a new me. You knew this day was coming.

"Announced that he will be retiring after the end of the upcoming season I did not hear you ask the question after his press conference which lasted about an hour. did you listen to or get the cliff notes on his press conference because i wanna be like mike. He's doing it the right way in in every single fashion inform. What do you think yeah. I agree with you on that. I did see the beginning of it when he talked about his family and his wife mickey and his three daughters and i was particularly moved. And i i agree with you wholeheartedly. On that you know there are so many bad ways to end a a legendary career. Doesn't even describe what we're talking about here. I mean we're talking about one of the most unique careers in the history of sports. And i liked the way he did it. You know it's hard to find that time but when you know the and you're comfortable and you're healthy which i think is most important thing and you're able to say okay. I'm going to walk away. We have the plan in place therefore we don't go through a circus That that hurts the program. We know who next coach is going to be. He can start recruiting. He can start moving in to certain areas. And you're also as powerful and as good as mike shoshefsky you can pull it off. I really i thought roy williams looked pretty pathetic on the way out. You knew it's been over for roy for a couple of years and He finally announced it after the season. He got a big sendoff but nobody really cared quite frankly. In coach case case it is going to be a big deal. And i don't mean. I'm not disparaging roy williams but he. He should've gone about two years ago. And in my sheffield case. I don't know when the right time for him to go. Certainly he has the best team two years ago as ion. They didn't win last year. Was this past. Season was rough for a lot of reasons. And you know he wants one more swing at it and i. I applaud them for that absolutely..

Who is eight episodes plus the Christmas special in each series? I did so. You're never really designing one episode. I start with and possibly a couple of weeks pratt on my own. Which would be my research. Volume would be wonderful and exciting and then slowly my team with those so. I have my assistant designers in supervisor. Starting the workroom would start and it would slowly build up to a very fast paced team of people working very hard to get ready for the first day of shoot but then carried through as you prepped ahead. So you'd be establishing costumes from episode one of prepping for episode two. So it was a a kind of plate. Spinning exercise has an empty pain one. I had Breaking them scripts and check those as you went up so that you were never call tights and things moved quickly with the way that when a script would be an issue too when we start filming. The wasn't a huge turnaround period. So it was pretty challenging but brilliant. I really did utilize the work. Climb may law from scratch and we use a lot of original pieces so I could see a lot of pressure myself to kind of use as much as I could. You know it's interesting because I'd costume design and working costumes American. I'm super curious. Kind of the difference. how departments are organized in the UK. But do you start by so you get the script. Do you kind of have a trajectory already about where the seasons going. Yes I think. We had two treatment that gave us a a rough breakdown of fought. Might be in store and it's crypts. Were kind of rolled out as we went. I think we filmed two episodes together. So you would do one in two three and four or five and six so that locations wise it made a bit more sense and so you did have a have an overview but when you break down the scripts no beat so many specific requirements each script that were controlled hugely by what they were doing at the time if they were having you know whatever conversation and thing that happened within the script the costumes were dictated by what time of day it was to vent. They were taking in because there were so many rules of dress it for adhered to at that time so and designing such a collaborative process to right. So you're collaborating you have those initial meetings with the director and you guys kind of agree on expectations for that episode or whatnot. But then you're also collaborating with other departments right yes absolutely I mean. My Job's very collaborative. The initial conversations are with my producers. Who showed run that The the show as it were alongside the director. I work closely with an Donna which the production designer net. Colin's the hair makeup designer cinematographer director of photography. I would work closely. With in terms of lighting and grading you know how the fabrics were going to behave in front of the camera. So you're looking at bigger costumes. Wouldn't the world that going to inhabit? An? How am I going to work with other against that set? So there's lots of different considerations when you're working out will each person wavered never nice Latian. They're always working within a multi factor affecting and. Can you tell us a little bit? About how your department structured? How many costumers and Taylor's cutter fitters How many people worked in just in the costume department on any given episode a bit? Tricky to think BECCA beaten as being five or six years and play started and then gone on to design the film and the film was a bit bigger. And so my. My memory of the television series has faded. Essentially it was. It was a a forward croom on the series. I had one better and to food makers and to train me. I would grasped in addiction seemed to sit and I needed to. I had a supervisor and an assistant designer and then I had my onset team or droop manager and two or three Standbys Department of two so it was a smaller department in the film which then increased across the

Automating Electronic Circuit Design with Deep RL w/ Karim Beguir

"Kareem is CO founder and CEO at Institute Kareem. Welcome back to the Tacoma area. Podcast pleasure to speak again. Absolutely so if Kareem's name sounds familiar. That's because we spoke We're trying to figure this out. It was between a year and a half a year ago The show actually was published in September. Was Number three hundred two and you should definitely check it out for Kareem's full background But croom wanted to give us a brief overview of what you're up to as well as an update from when we last spoke absolutely so I it's a pleasure to be back in. Continue our conversation on aside. He's been pretty invent follow. The Lot has happened as you know instead. Deep is a decision making a startup. So we focus on Problems related to making complex decisions We also do our own innovation and the tried to be helpful to the community and we've made progress basically on this three areas. We've been able to release innovative products. In decision making we've also been able to publish innovate in research Publishing original you know like pieces. That were actually. What come that nervous where we got the spotlight presentation for example with Google declined? And we've also been very active on the community side organizing major events in Africa and basically lots of young talents. Find say super -tunities in there and the we most recently saw one another at Nuremberg and had a chance to catch up briefly at the black dinner where you really piqued my interest around one of the company's new initiatives or products which is called DP. Cb tell us about what is absolutely so this'll be actually started with with conversation Two years ago I I had a dinner with a good friend of mine. Who is actually an expert in hardware design worked on like no chips for a well known phones etc and we were speaking about like. What is he doing this particular sector? And he was like not that much like particular like busy stunt for printed circuit boards so basically those ships that you will find with all sorts of Consumer Electronics Products Iphones Speakers Bluetooth etc and You know the situation in that market was that auto routers basically automated systems to connect the different components like built. Basically the electrical secretary have been going on for many years but they were not that make and we were like. Hey that sounds like an interesting problem to to look at. We started looking into it eventually. This good front now. Be True was now meeting or hardware team joint steady and we've worked very hard on this project and we're very proud to have been able to achieve goals and in November last year we've released it in. Beta form and it is a world first for the first time we have a system that is end to end fully deployable and scalable on the cloud capable of understanding how to route chips essential and now last time we spoke we. Our conversation was focused on the work. Your company was doing applying reinforcement learning to logistics is deep be also based on reinforcement learning absolutely and this is a very strong commonality and like design philosophy between or or products. So in a sense. Let me give you an example. We've we've continued to do great work in logistics and the recently last September. We've won a major contract for example with that. Chaban the German railway company and to give idea this is about routing trains on a large scale talking about ten thousand trains a day and some think on some thirty three thousand kilometers of railway but downs out their communities between routing trains and routing chips on a board and so we realized that the projects and the type of research that study is doing is actually applicable to multiple fields. And when it comes to imbed Ziegler printed circuit boards. They're putting compelling so. We went full speed ahead and this turned out to be office product. Alrighty so when you initially met with your friend your mention that they're you know while this these auto routers have been in place or have been in use for many years. They were not without their challenges and problems. What were some of those challenges and problems? And what was the opportunity to introduce? A I think Reuters have been the they've been. There's been a lot of great work. Donald Reuters but in terms of like design philosophy. The design philosophy is all about essentially using ristic's to solve problems and we spoke a little bit about this in Bester conversation so it's very similar to let's say what was the status of software for chess before out. Fazio came out the systems which were very well actually but still are built on your way. Sticks fought for the hardest problems. Ristic's have limits and a system that can essentially mobilize learning can. Learning get scale can get better results when it comes in particular for in the status of printed circuit. Boards it is actually incredible and we are in twenty twenty that actually complex sucrets still designed manually and the reason why people design those Mandy is because auto routers essentially a failed to deliver the goods to the degree of quality which is expected by high quality customers so we see a really compelling opportunity with modern built on the latest innovation. Some of it actually developed in house we actually have patents on the work done for the. There is an opportunity to accelerate the design cycle of products. Because it's not just about quality you mean. Engineers do absolutely amazing work and have amazing intuition. It's about the speed. Human engineer could take in certain cases multiple weeks if not months to completely root complex with more than we do believe instead that this timing can be proud to twenty four hours this if done at scale it would be tremendous for the industry and it would accelerate the product cycle. We are using consumer electronics to have a cycle every six months of the year. There's a new version coming. We believe that any I could actually accelerate A. That's that's a that psycho and as a consequence also make it easier to design new products and experiment and ultimately unleash more human creativity and mobilizing gay. You mentioned complexity of the boards as being one of the challenges. What are we talking about when we talk about complexity? We I'm assuming we're measuring that in for example number of components but having worked with circuit boards before there are also issues like the number of layers and things like that when you talk about a complex board. What exactly are you talking about? So about really consists in basically an. Kyi's that we need to connect and as a consequence like those guys they can be what needs to be connected so you have fairs of components essential get need to be connected and they could be thousands of those and as you mentioned rightly there could be multiple layers simple designs start with two or four layers that you could have a lot more and the more you have layers the more components you have to connect the heart of the problem. It is an empty heart problem and so this is where I can help. But you can you when you're looking at the most difficult designs that we take human engineers significant amount of time to solve

"croom" Discussed on Security Now

"No, actually, it's a consequence of Croom cast telling you around her that has universal plug and play that it would like some ports mapped to it. Pretty please. Okay. So it is both. You know, it is universal plug. And play. How many times must we say? You know, the. I will say that the instant it appeared on this podcast. We said turn it off. This is really bad turn it off. And we know that XBox people were that was a hardship for them because you know, arguably this was created. So that XBox would be able to have ports mapped into it. So anyway, what we have is the return of hacker draft. Remember that twice now? Leo once while you were gone, then the second time that you for you. The first mentioned on this podcast. Pudi pie was his second hack of a greater number of printers, which are exposed on the internet all sending out the well. What would there was like the number two youtuber was some? It's a it's a failure Indian. Yeah. Tea or something. Yeah. Right. Right. Right. Okay. We're p I think PD pie has t series has six it's bleed to Pudi pie. That's what it was. It was teaser. So anyway on the fac for the hacker, giraffe dot com. They ask themselves. What's going on? If you came here because you're a victim of cast hack, then know that your chrome cast slash smart.
