Hour 4: 4/25/19

"The Paul finebaum show podcast has been brought to you by the Capital One sabre card earned four percent cash. Back on dining and entertainment two percent of grocery stores and one percent on all other purchases. Now when you go out you cash in what's in your wallet terms apply. Cried passion and Patrick three of college. Football leaves here. The is the Paul finebaum show. Our four podcast. We welcome. You back. Final hours arrive you want to give us your ring. You can do. So now day five to four to seven to eight five KENNY'S West Virginia. And you are next up. Hey, Kenny how you doing today? We are great. Thank you. I do have a question. But I I have a shout till couple of your callers era. I was listening to Keith out of Arizona earlier. And he said that he was on the will Rogers, which is a nuclear submarine. I was on a nuclear fast attack out of Norfolk and got new London. I was also an instructor at naval new through prototype out who and no matter what anybody says that's one of the toughest jobs in the military's be on sub. So special Seattle those two guys Greg and Keith, but I do actually have a question. I wanna know what you thought the possibility of coach Wade facing any future travel. Oh, repercussions out of these meetings in New York, or if you think they may set aside some victories, or what are your thoughts? Yeah. He can't he he caught a big break by not having to testify because had he testified I think he would have had a difficult time surviving that testimony especially under oath in federal court and by not doing so a lot of people are just going to push that under the rug. Now, if it doesn't come back up he will be safe. Now, the the question I have more more relevant or pertinent than that. Because that's another day is how well is he going to recruit we're in a recruiting season. Now, we still don't know yet. We really haven't heard anything from him, and there's not much you can say, but but ultimately, and and at some point in time he has to face the music, and he better be able to talk a big game. Because the perception of will Wade had outside of Louisiana. Has. Has dropped precipitously. Well, if he was totally innocent, he would have talked and he didn't and that his silence of SP I agree. Totally. I mean to me, I don't think he has any credibility as head basketball coach, no in if I was apparent had a child going there. I wouldn't want him playing for teeter. I think you have a lot of people in this happens, by the way every day of the week in Washington with politics, but you have a lot of people from the director down there. Scott Woodward who joined us the other day to Greg Sankey who was asked about it and really didn't say very much, although we probably could be probably didn't want to get in the middle of somebody else's business right now. Although ultimately, it is business. I think it's pretty sickening situation. But you know. Per the contract. He survived for four. Now kind of like a win win at any cost as far as that school. Yeah. But and I mean, if he didn't do any of this stuff, then pay the forum is yours coach. That's right. Thank you for the call. Really do. Appreciate it. Thank you, Paul great to hear from you. Fred is up next for Edgar. I'd head Paul favor. Take him a call. Thank you. I have one request for all right? I want to repeat after me. He's alone. ESPN these pager roam the Mattel you make college Rome so many in. It is great as your previous caller said here. So many of the happy may have been cheerleader. Great to hear so many the holder callers are the are the legacy callers calling into the show fall. I've got a question for you. What what is the role of the NCAA? What is their job as an institution? Well, they're they're job is they're they're they're the governing and legislative body of intercollegiate athletics. Meaning that three hundred and some odd schools are member institutions and the president the NC double A is the defacto had now they all their their basic role is is is enforcement legislation and they administered the NCW basketball tournament. However, having said all that red in the new paradigm of college athletics. The vision the commissioners of the five power five conferences have the autonomy. Pretty much to run the sport run run run run. All sports any way, they want. And the reason I only football, especially football, especially absolutely, you're absolutely right. And that that would be an answer if we will giving you an exam on it. And the reason I'm asking is that I'm confused as to whether part of their role is also to punish students who want find themselves in situations like bark Hoffman trying to move to be closer to his ailing mom in the play football. Well, listen. Yeah. There there's a there's there's their procedures that they go into that. And they're inconsistent. And I'm sure you understand this as a lawyer, you want consistency. You can deal with with the judge or or or any. Or anybody as long as, you know, their tendencies, but the NC double A doesn't have them anymore because you know, they let Martell they let Justin fields they let these type of players do do what they've done. And then they they go against someone. We're common sense would have prevailed. I mean, by the way, nobody cared. Whether this kid was given his eligibility. I'm not saying nobody cared people that the only people that did care were those were those interested people. I mean, if I if they had let him play it wasn't going upset anyone. But the the picky you an answer that they gave on on on the jurisdiction of it being five miles or ten miles is is beyond the pale. We looked at that. At anybody out there listening who have ever had to deal with someone being sick, especially someone close to you. And especially a parent and mom Rian preeminent nothing against as I'm a dad. But when it's mom when it when it is your mother, you will do anything, you know, heaven have having to try to be close to her to try to try to be there to do whatever you can. And when I read that decision, and they said, well, the rule says they have to be a hundred hundred thousand five miles outside of that uninformed house away. That's what you get to the point with you feel wait a minute. You pulled me over because what? Yes, sir. I put Dover because you were a one is into the crosswalk. I mean, if one of those things where you just said yourself, this makes no common sense. And you say something I've quibble with you. You said that the incident it has not been consistent. I would argue that the happy. In as relates the not using commonsense. Not having people who have the students best interest in heart and people who have either trying to find ways to justify whatever their purpose and missionary as big as far fearful, whatever it was. And it was first established. And that's this. I'll leave. I will note it is absolutely great to see that people are getting involved and speaking as relates to not just football. But everyone of the sports it was so good to see people talk into our basketball about basketball baseball rolling out and SE fee is not just a football me. Get my point. It is the Premier League of all league. And Paul part of the reason for that. You wrote a book about it? All right. Great Americans other. I'll let me so much great to hear from you. Mike is in Houston. We appreciate your call. Good afternoon. Hi there. Hey, I just wanted to get your take on what's going on with. I don't know if you've been following the NC double acoss ask well trial. That's going on. We are. Yes. So just kind of seen this video footage come from this meeting in Las Vegas. You know, basically with these agents, and assistant coaches, you know, kinda describing the landscape of college basketball, recruiting, you know, what are your thoughts on what what's going on there? I mean, how you know has systematically corrupt. You think this whole institution is called big time. College basketball. I haven't answered that question by by knowledge that you know, we hear this network care very deeply about student athletes, and we do everything we can to promote the fourteen member institutions. I said that for a reason Mike because that's that's our. That's our mission statement, my mission statement is a talk show host is to be honest and truthful with the constituency of this show, which includes your question. I'm not surprised at all because I began my career as an investigative reporter looking into malfeasance, and I don't do that any longer. But I, but I am fairly plugged into the way the system works and college athletics is a cesspool. In college basketball is at the top of the food chain. It is dirty. It is a stinking entity. And there's nothing that conference commissioners or the NC double A can do to stop it. We love the three weeks of the NC double a basketball tournament. It's the greatest show on television. But what goes on in those hotel rooms, which we saw today in that New York courtroom, our business as usual and only people who are naive, and and who have not been paying attention for the last thirty or forty years are surprised by it. And just go off on that. I mean is this the exact same thing college football? Now. I don't think so college football is more legislated administrated sport. I it's getting dirtier because the power is getting is moving away from coaches going out and recruiting there are far more middlemen in college athletics in college football than there used to be you. You know, so much goes on, you know, in college basketball. You know, we used to hear about the Uteem's. We're we're hearing more about that in college football. I mean, there are so many camps. There's so many different ways to get your your claws into these athletes at a very early age. I mean, if you go to the university of Texas or or Alabama, Florida Georgia by the time you've gotten there, if you're an elite athlete you've been through the system for years, you've had more sleaze bags trying to get get their hooks into you. And unfortunately, and this is the other side of it. We're not talking about a lot of people were were there. They are accustomed to this. I have a lot of friends who played college athletics and who played pro athem pro sports. And and I if you and by the way, I didn't come from anything. So at seventeen years old had I been an elite athlete and somebody offered me something for my mom. I would've taken it. I would've taken anything I could. And I know that makes me sound like because we didn't have anything. So my question back to you, Mike if you don't have anything and somebody offers you something that you've never had before. What do you do? No. I mean, I think I'd take it. I think you know, it's an important issue. I think a lot of us are interested in because a lot of this fall recruiting and a lot of are interested in college athletics. And but I think at the end of the day. I mean, there's got to be. I mean, we gotta realize that this is there's a lot of money going under the table here. This is Joe. Well, my is recruiting you've already seen a preemptive move by the NC double A, they got secretary Condoleeza Rice, and she's headed up a commission which had a lot of really good ideas. None of them will probably be implemented. Or maybe a few will be implemented. There's just I don't want to say there's not much you can do or nothing you can do. But there really isn't. It's a dirty sport. And today just happened to be one of those days that we gotta prism right into inside of it. I mean, look at look at the Woolwich situation. He's on he's on the wiretap. Saying all these things and his fan based shrugs her shoulders and say, you know, so what big deal prove it? Well, I think I think this will pass you you'll see if you casualties from from this. I mean, Pitino was the first to go somebody else will get thrown into this. But but but we'll just we'll all act like we're outrage like I just did. And we'll say who you got in the game tonight. We'll take your break match. Go who probably wouldn't have taken this money because he's got integrity. He will join us next to listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Okay. We got everybody back with us. Now talking to match inch comb about his playing days in twenty years ago, Madeline go back to subject we were talking about amigo because we had a brief conversation during the break. I want you to share this. I was asked this trial in New York difference between college basketball and college football. And I would like to you to elaborate on that. Because their college football has its issues, but leased as of this hour things could change over the next five. Sure as we saw three years ago with Laremy Tunsil. It doesn't seem to be as much of a cesspool as basketball. Why? I think there is a point of distinction in that when you look at this what's transpiring and unraveling in college basketball is the corporate involvement. And I just don't know where the entry point is the point of value would be corporately speaking for a corporate brand to pursue a high school football player. I don't think it's a function of football has higher mores. I don't think that basketball's irretrievable in that regard. Although there's a lot of work to be done by do think that the I think the most distinct element is not enthusiasm. It's not I think the opportunity for transgression or impropriety. I think it's that there is not really a reason for a brand a corporate entity to wonder Williams is I mean, his contracts are going to be immense where I'm trying to think in in recent memory a college football player. Or that would. I mean, there've been valuable college football point, no doubt. And ultimately, they will become valuable Cam Newton does a lot of endorsements others others have done. So but not there's not a standalone they didn't come out of high school like that. Oh, now, I think that's the biggest point of distinction is that the awareness of the individual and basketball, and it's a function of the sport. They don't have a cage in front of their race. It's less of a collective, you know, there's five players on the court. You can run clear out plays and one guy can dominate a game. You can't do that in football. I think all those things adds to. I think what we're seeing unfortunately happening, and thankfully, I think that it's being unearthed in basketball. It's unfortunate, no doubt. But the hope will always be that what will come of all this is not necessarily a cleansing, but some level of progression towards a model that works that will eliminate the steering of kids to certain schools, just for the the embellishment of their personal brand. For somebody to sell shoes. There's almost a model that does work and just let them go straight to the NBA. They can do that. Well, and I and I will say this. They don't have to play college basketball. Right. Go play in Europe. Go play in China for a year. I don't but you do not have to play college basketball. There's nothing in the arrangement with the NBA that requires them to do that. However, I will say this you go play in Europe and China, and your brand is going to take a hit versus playing at a Kansas at a Kentucky at a Duke or wherever and I'm not implicating any of those programs. Those are the blue blood basketball programs. And of course, there's a lot of cameras in eyeballs on them helps that brand a lot of cameras in eyeballs on the draft tonight. And I know you'll be talking about it later on. I have. I mean, it's hard to keep up with all the rumors. But it seems like Murray is going mentioned that it seems like that. I mean, it's amazing that some years. You don't really know. What was it last year that we didn't know before? I can't remember there's always a cushier make it more interesting. It seems like we know all although it's era zone is still playing it somewhat coyly that it just seems as if they are the only reason why column or we'll go number one which to me kind of calls into question if that's the case. And you're the only one that would come at him in that spot. Is there not opportunity to maybe leverage that big and get him later? And then of course, you run the risk of what's thought to be a perfect fit for your quote unquote system or would be system because we haven't seen it on the rug yet under cliff Kingsbury no longer being available. But that's what's so remarkable that only in in America that still shake and you get fired by middling college football. Program, Texas, Tech and end up and NFL hit goes making the first pick in the draft. It's a beautiful country. And I mean, it's it's phenomenal. In fact, and they've got history, of course, Kingsbury in collared berry with their time at Texas them when Kingsbury was offense coordinator cower Murray because I still can't get over. And I realized a lot. I mean, I'm not dismissing this year. It was it was phenomenal. But this is a guy that went to am because of his dad, and there was so much interference. With all those five star quarterbacks on the roster, and he finally willed his way to start and it didn't work, right? And you know, ends up in Norman Oklahoma with their there's worst places to which is where everyone goes as as we've learned kind of cuts in handy. Jalen hurts, you know, get your get your suit ready for drafty. It's he's a tremendous athlete. Yeah. I heard some commentary today that thought was somewhat interesting that supposedly and there's so much. Smokescreen and posturing that comes out of this time of year, especially where you're trying to depress guys value to maybe grab them lower at cetera. But you know, if he doesn't go number one would it would it bother him. Would he feel slighted and now we'll baseball all of a sudden become more prominent either way, whoever takes the guy they're going to have to address that issue. This quarterback is not tailback. Bo Jackson played for the Kansas City Royals, and then showing up and playing for the LA raiders is totally different from. Hey, go play baseball for a little while. And then just plug and play quarterback at the NFL level doesn't work that way. They're going to have to have that addressed. I was amazed. That was even a topic of conversation. Brought that up because I've been around long enough. I covered the nineteen Eighty-six draft. And bow Jackson told the Tampa Bay bucks. I'm not I'm not playing for you. He was upset with the owner. Hugh culverhouse. They had picked him up when he was playing baseball for Auburn in a private plane, and it cost him his eligiblity. He had he had the missed the last couple of weeks of the season, and he was really irritated about it. He kept he wanted to play baseball. He said, I'm not playing for you. I they draft him. And he would any ended up playing baseball a couple of weeks later he signed with the roles and Utah. I mean think about it you I mean, how what an ill-fated franchise that was at the time you draft the first player, and you know, and he doesn't play for you is that the reason why in two thousand and four when I was with the bucks they were in the same temporary trailers next to him, you missile. I don't know if Culverhouse owned the team back, I think it had transferred ownership by the place those same facility. I mean, it's it's stunning to think about that. Well, imagine. Yeah. You're exactly right. And you can think where how important that pick is and the amount of time that we've all spent discussing how you're going to actually allocate that pig and the investment that you're going. To make and how the could be even an inflection point for an entire franchise. And then to have nothing to show for it. And there is no way you're not going to get a compensatory pick because the guy went and played baseball. It just doesn't work that way. The other teams are gonna be like off mentioned a figure that on the front end shouldn't send your your private plane in messed up his ability. But that's how I mean for anybody. Who knows both that things never got over that. And he the sad part for both. I think if he only played baseball he would be he would have gone down as one of the greatest major league baseball players of all time. No doubt. And well, look how many guys do you know that could be an all star. And an all pro. Yeah. There's just not that many. You know, Brian Jordan was one of the best dual sport athletes. Not a lot is spoken about him played safety for the falcons played outfield for the Braves. But when you think about dual sport athletes, any Michael Jordan with the Birmingham Barons. Now, it's it's Bo Jackson. Chance for the the guy playing up in Syracuse right now in and. I guess he he could suddenly quadruple his batting average. Is that what's going to happen? Heck of a football player the great football. Yup. And so are you twenty years ago? Even though you don't remember anything about it. We have the video, and it's pretty embarrassing video. We just put a picture of you on Twitter that you look like a plow. Boy, do I now does it does it have. How many chins do? I have in that photo. Yeah. Let your high school prom or I can't quite can't see it that well from over here. All I'm gonna pretend as if I can't comment kid Matt will be with us. He'll he'll be on your later won't be with us. We're done Matt. Thank you very much. It was always fun. Matt stench gum, thirty minutes remaining on this show. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Welcome back. We are glad you are here, and we will be calls rest of the way at eight five five to four to seven to eight five if you would like to give us a ring checking with Bill in Charleston. Hey, bill. Welcome to the program. Good afternoon. Hey, politics speaker. How'd you hear me? Now, you sound great. Thank you. Good. Listen, I was listening. I haven't I've been away have been involved with grandkids and something so I haven't seen any of the programs within the last say week or so but did catch Fred from plano some point time. I would love to sit and chat with Fred many years ago acted as a prosecutor done a lot of things. But anyway, I'm back to talk about the North Carolina's situation. I don't know if you've talked about that in the past week or not have you or have not real not lately. No. Okay. All right. We talked earlier. And you said, you might have was probably a good idea to have this mister Cain. Come on. Yeah. No. I do. Remember that call? Yeah. And we also said it would be nice maybe to talk to J M Smith, professor at the North Carolina will rarely runs. A course. Yes. The he says what he says is the largest scant academic scandal in the history of America. Yeah. I really admire the guy that's on faculty there that said that that's pretty brave obviously, he's on tenure. Otherwise, I don't think he said thank. So, but anyway, I think it, you know, and I listened to Fred, and I listened to stench Komen of people today, and clearly there's an under belly here that needs to be exposed and talked about, but the part of that huge pearly underbelly underbelly is what happened in North Carolina. And again, I use the word exposition, which I think is the best word because the root words exposed an exposition of what happened there. I think is important, and if we can shame I think Mr Swoboda in the ACC, I think it's most appropriate and the NCAA like Fred said what the heck is he NCAA doing by the way unchain the Cal poly got got the sanction recently. Is that? Right. I think so. Yeah. Yeah. Listen, I I am going. I know it said that times, but the seasons have been pretty active, but we're about to enter a less active season or or maybe I can I'm not that far from professor, maybe I can that look in a little bit more closely. That would be great. And also Cal poly understand. They got sanctioned probation for two years understand for students were getting more than a stipend for books. Yeah. Well, that's that's where people just want to pull their hair out and scream with the NC double A because they don't like going after the sacred cows. Yeah, they don't mind Cleveland state or Cal poly white. I mean, but the juxtaposition between North Carolina. And in Cal poly is I mean, it's Azam gosh. What are we doing? It's and I think it really needs to be done. And I think you're the guy to do it. I'm gonna have to figure out how to deal with this because I deal with so many administrators in college athletics that I'm going to have to check my outrage at the door because this is the time of the year where you end up spending a lot of time with them. And by the way, a I Meyer athletic directors, and especially chancellors and presidents because they really do. Talk a good game. Yep. Yep. But, but I think it would be a great time to do it, by the way, the vast majority of athletes took advantage of this lack of institutional control football players and basketball players sports. And you know, what's interesting. They they recently. I think she was fired. But they the Sylvia Hatchimal the longtime. I think she'd been there forty some odd years she just was forced out as the women's basketball. Coach, right. She would be someone. I would love to sit down and talk to. Yeah. By the way, some of the people involved with women basketball. I absolutely I've seen. I mean, she was she was fired over some racially charged language or something. But I'm sure she's probably signed her life away to not ever speak publicly. But man the. I would like to talk to a regardless. Yeah. If you could get a truth solar to come on that would be wonderful. It's gonna be hard to find one now. Hey, listen. Hey, thank you, very very much. Great to have you on if you so true what he said Hank in Austin, Texas is up next. Hey, hank. Hey, paul. I really appreciate you work. Man. Great. Appreciate ask you about. You know, I live in Austin here, and, you know, big games coming up the first week in September with LSU taxes and wanted to get your thoughts on that. I went to the baseball series LSU Cape detectors early this, spring and half. The crowd was L shoot her prints lazing. It is amazing. You know, I think that game Hank is going to be critical for both programs, and I'm not saying loss there is going to necessarily derail one or the other. But a win is going to propel the that specific team to Syria. College football playoff conversation. Sure, I, you know, I'm thinking out of the gate here that LSU's going to be favored. Yeah. Danny Sheridan will be on here tomorrow. And that would be great. There'll be a question. I'll I'll ask him because I think you're right in right now, I would lean. Toward LSU and winning that game. I just think they're more complete team. But. You know, it's. It's a it's an early game. It's a road game ends a little bit tough to call. Thank you for the call. We still have time for you to get in final final call here last call if you're in a bar anywhere anyway. Anyway, you want to do it. But the numbers eight five five to four to seven to eight five and we're back with the remaining moments on this draft night listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Let's talk to Jimmy up next as we welcome all of you back to the show. Hey, jimmy. Paul when you think NC, go Belay channel do themselves. This Luke for decision that just defies any semblance of common sense that any human being could could demonstrate the does I grew. I I'm I'm gonna take a wild guess here. They're going to overturn at some point. Do you think the fact that Thomas Ma Mars might be taken who for whatever we we'd be the first step in the reclamation project? Absolutely. You want to be on the wrong. I'm out in creative many people in this world. I don't want. No Thomas Mars calling me up. You don't want to be on the wrong. So free. Guy. Yeah. And I'm sure he is probably more than willing. When he heard about this to take this case pro Bono. He listened he he's he's got a great track record. So yeah, he's the guy you go to. By the way, this is easy compared to Justin fields and some of the other ones. Oh, just ask the tobacco companies. Yeah. And then, you know, he was I think Houston nuts attorney, you know. And yeah, he I don't think you're gonna see Thomas Mars giving the commencement speech at liberty college this year. No, I don't think. So. And would you say that after today there might be a possibility that Steve Smith? The Clemson assistant basketball coach might be a little bit of hot water after. Implicating that there might be some untorn things going on with Clemson football. Yeah. I mean, listen, it's one thing to talk about basketball. But don't you dare mention football. If you're Clemson because it's little oh, Clemson. They don't do anything there. But just get disrespected. Yes. No, no doubt about that. But yeah, this is this trial is I mean each day, you it's just becoming more and more bizarre. And one of the strangest things that I have kind of taken from this is that the Dawkins taped phone take conversation with the NC double A guys. I guess on the yard in New York him saying that Patino was the one coat. I thought that was go ahead. Yeah. They said, no. The one thing that all been wrong about I'll throw myself. And he typically no had no idea. What was I mean? He just was. And now don't think about it Patino was a he was he was a obsessive guy and the reason for that. I thought he would. No. But he may it may have been so far in the clouds with all the stuff that he was doing, and I'm not going to get into what I know about Rick Pitino because it would it would it would be worthy of thirty for thirty. Yes. But I I am kind of a wear though that in his last two or three years that he was kind of checked out on the recruiting trail. There's a reasoning for that. Because Patino was obsessed with a couple of other things going on. And if I ever see I'll tell you what I know. But I do believe that now. Would it possibly involve golf? Yeah. That would be that would be under the umbrella. But it's a big umbrella. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. He liked to play golf, and they like to play a lot of things. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. And and another thing that kind of shocked me was that I heard just through the grapevine. I don't mean anything by it all, but I had heard time to is name involved and what I was stunned to hear. And also on the take phone conversations was dark and said the only school mentioned that he could he could think of that was involved in the Brian Bowen recruitment that did not offer him money to play. There was Michigan state, and that was a really interesting relevant revelation there. And so I I I mean. Thing about it though. And I think overall though, I it's finally time to remove the veil and just get down to the nitty gritty and address. This fact that college basketball, I mean, it's just a slimy. As it gets and that we get down to it. And it's it's, but thank you anybody that this is not a secret, though, doesn't mean it isn't fun to watch the NCAA tournament was maybe the best ever this year. But. It's lisi. It's okay. I can live with it. TD is up next. How are you TD? I'm good Paul. Thanks for taking my call. Thank you regarding thing players. There are three NCWA division one schools that they all of this our ship athletes something around two thousand dollars a month. Does that set a precedence? But the NCW to regulate. Yes. Sure. I think I lost that. But anyway, CB is up next in Tuscaloosa. Hey, CB Horia. Hey, buddy. How you doing? We are great. Thank you know, you trying to get out of there. But a good show. I think oh, what do, you know about Damon hash, you know, he could come out last year. Alabama running back is he fell through the cracks or. Yeah. You know? It's a great point. I think. I I'm wondering if he wouldn't have been better to come out last year because here he here's what happened. I mean, Josh Jacobs emerged, and I'm not saying it really is going to fake Damian that much, but he is ranked behind him, and it was a pretty poor year for for running backs. I think he'll go reasonably high tomorrow, but he definitely a year ago. I would have easily projected him as a number one draft. Never a first rounder. Yes, sir. May again, it goes he didn't you know? He didn't care them all at let's go ahead semitic. Could kate. You know, the thing that I I respected Daime such a smart guy. I know him as well as maybe any Alabama player over the years. And I think he'll I think he'll do well based on that. But yeah, he didn't he didn't help himself this year podcast available on the app in apple podcast. Thank you. For listening to the Paul finebaum show pond. Cast.

0153: Joyce Vance (11/2/2018)

"Hi, this is Rebecca from Oregon co host of the podcast in times pep talk. And you're listening to as Rachel Maddow likes to say Joyce, Vance from the great state of Alabama onto broads talking politics. Now, go vote. Listen. Hi, everyone. This is Kelly with two broads talking politics and say, I'm excited to have on with me. Joyce Vance who is a distinguished professor of the practice of law at the university of Alabama law school, and she's also a former US attorney. Hi joyce. Hi, thanks so much for joining me today and glad to be with you. I have of course, a million things. I think we could probably talk about and since it is love your lawyer day. Wanna thank you for for being a lawyer. And I was just in a Twitter conversation where people were saying, you know, if you told me two years ago, the lawyers were going to save us. I don't know if I would have believed, but it seems like lawyers are becoming increasingly important these days it really is. You know, pretty remarkable. I think from the earliest days of the Muslim ban lawyers stepped up and there's a new appreciation for the work day. So the good silver lining to the times, we live in maybe just really briefly could you talk a little bit about sort of how you got into law. A little bit about your background in public service law. So I went to law school. I think like so many people do because I was interested in politics. I was interested in government, but not from a partisan viewpoint. I was much more attracted the confrontational principles and rule of law and had the great good fortune. Even from my earliest years in a big law firm in in Washington, errant, FOX Kiner Plotkin and con to have the opportunity to work pro Bono on civil rights plaintiffs cases, one of the first cases, I got to work on was a class action lawsuit challenging racial discrimination in a governmental entity. So I had that early on mentorship. And guidance and encouragement to do that work, and it was a natural fit. When I went over to the US attorney's office as a young prosecutor and worked on a lot of our criminal, civil rights cases, there did you ever think that we would be in a situation? Today where lawyers were going to be so important in in not just sort of protecting people's rights. But in fact, protecting people's rights sort of from the government, you know, I always like to tell my young prosecutors, and I tell my students now that federal prosecutors the work that they do every day just civil rights work during the business of protecting people civil rights, and that might mean that prosecutors who are charged with putting people in prison actually have to be the one to make sure that agents follow constitutional principles when they're arresting when they're questioning, and when they're gathering evidence, I think from that inside viewpoint it comes as no surprise to me that lawyers are protecting folks protecting people's civil rights would I never anticipated was that it would happen in this direct fashion with the president in effect leading the charge. You mentioned, you know, from the the Muslim ban that lers have stepped up. And so it's a Kurd to me recently that, you know, a lot of us are following what lers too much more closely these days, but I still don't have a good handle on kind of what that process looks like. So if there is something where the attorney general lower the president issues in order that that is deemed eventually to be unconstitutional. I don't know who sort of makes that case that it should be unconstitutional who they take that to what that process looks like. So can you talk us through that a little bit? Yeah. You know? That's a really great question because lawyers aren't suddenly just doing this under the Trump administration. It has always gone on. It's just that it's been more into shadows. And the process is very decentralized. The I really line of challenge to unconstitutional laws has always been the Justice department whether that central. Lies in Washington. Whether it's the solicitor general who makes the decision along needs to be challenged or folks in the criminal civil rights civil division. He'd go to the source ter- general or often the experience, but I had an Alabama challenging Alabama's H B fifty six the anti immigration Bill where we went to Washington this law health and constitutional issues, we really need to challenge it. So that traditionally historically been sort of the first place. There's also a very decentralized civil rights community made up of organizations that people are now very familiar with the ACLU the legal defense fund of the N double ACP, the southern poverty Law Center in my home state and a number of groups that advocate for civil rights across the country. These days mouthed of and other immigrant coalitions play an important role the seek alliance the Anti-Defamation League a whole lot of groups. And so challenges can come out of any one of those groups. They virtually all have filled litigators these days, it's essentially boots on the ground. The people who see the problem will often bring the first challenge, and what I noticed increasingly is that people work together. There's a tremendous group called the leadership conference for civil rights. It's headed by a woman named Benita Gupta. Who was the last head of the civil rights division at Justice department during the Obama administration? She coordinates the groups in a way, that's really unprecedented as a response to the times, we live in and so increasingly we see this very coordinated focused sophisticated civil rights litigation voting rights litigation taking place, and so that litigation then goes to circuit courts goes to I keep hearing about the number circuit court. So it was so what does that sort of look like so it starts out, and I'm gonna sort of speak with a broad brush because there are up some typically you start in a trial court that can sometimes. The state trial court more typically, it's a federal district court, and you have to go all the way through that process until the judge issued a final order or some other appealable order, and then the cases appeal to one of the essentially twelve courts of appeals in this country are eleven and then a specialized court in in the district of Columbia. And so you have that route of appeal and up to three judge panel, not just a single panel. And then either party typically can request an appeal to the supreme court of the United States through a mechanism called, sir Sharara, and the supreme court has discretion over whether to hear those cases or not the one exception. I should probably point out is that voting cases in certain areas, sometimes are dealt with by special panel rather than a traditional trial mechanism has has that been confusing enough. I think it makes a little more sense to me now. But I think the good point is we really depend on the independence and the integrity of the federal judiciary and the tradition in this country has been that are judges are appointed by president. They in many ways get there because they have some political poll, and we expect them to set that aside once they're on the bench an issue there ruling solely on the basis of the law and said the the big law question this week that has come up is this idea of birthright citizenship with a president. Yeah. Thing that he's going to issue an executive order doing away with birthright citizenship. So it first of all can the president do that can the president make an executive order that says such a thing. And then if he does what is the process to challenge that right? I think in the time of Trump questions are a little bit different. Because in the past. We would say, you know, can the present. Do that. And we would really be talking about is it lawful for the president to do that. Now, we know this issue of can the president do that has very little to do with lawfulness and fully vetting decision before it's taken. And it's just a question of can the president theoretically do this. I'm sure the president can issue any executive order that he wants to. But in this case if he does issue in order terminating birthright citizenship, he will run hard and fast into the fourteenth amendment which makes it abundantly clear in plain and simple language, people who were born in this country are American citizens even the same supreme court that issued the Plessey v. Ferguson decision a decision that was historically wrong. And that said that separate the equal schooling was was legal even that same supreme court supported birthright citizenship founded issued in the constitution. So we have this remarkable situation in progress where Republicans. The party of strict construction people who for decades since then we must follow every word in the constitution. And we must do it strictly and they've used that on a number of different fronts, for instance, gun rights and now southernly they're being asked to follow president. He says, you know, what the nor what's in the fourteenth amendment? And I have to believe that that will be a bridge too far for even many of Trump's staunch supporters who after all have all taken a to uphold the constitution. One would hope. Any challenge in the courts will be swift. And I feel very comfortable that the courts would say an executive order that did that could not stand. Yeah. I don't even know how an order like that would be written. A you know, how far back does this go. You know, my grandmother was not a citizen when my dad was born, right? The the retro-activity question is fascinating because it invokes both can you strip people of citizenship. And then what's the impact for people like you where if your parent would not have been a citizenship, given this sort of retroactive process of it's unworkable, it's unconstitutional, it's bad policy. I suspect we won't hear a whole lot about it. After the men terms. I think that this is just red meat being thrown at the base to see if they'll bite suit you mentioned that historically. Traditionally federal judges are appointed by the president. And then they were. Work independently after that is that still do you think what we're seeing is. There's something we should be watching for in what's happening with judicial appointments. Let me tell you. I still tend to be a believer in the independent judiciary. And I think that individual judges who have the credential to get confirmed will strive to do their job once they take the bench. But we've seen some disturbing trends in this presidency. There has been a rush to confirm judges two seats that in many cases were held open by the Republicans for the last two or three years of President Obama's term. I think that that's discouraging that they manipulated those openings for political advantage. The other problem that we've had is there have been a number of candidates who they've had the withdrawal because they lacked the credential and number of others who have had serious challenges made both to their qualifications. But also. Oh to their temperament, for instance, judges who would not go on record is saying Brown versus board of education, which guaranteed black children the same rights to education as white children. Judges who would not go on record as saying that that was a good decision. So maybe there's some issues, but my hope is that once these people take the bench their older, brethren and sister and on the bench really do a good job of making sure that that that traditional objective and independent judiciary is preserved. Is there anything that we as citizens outside that process should be doing should be watching for the red flags that we might see? Yeah. You know, I think that there is the way that you become a federal judge is you get appointed by the president. But you have to be confirmed by the Senate, and that typically means that the Senate does at least some marginal evaluation of these folks. And when a candidate comes along whose temperamentally. Fit or who is done straighted bias that concerns us that that judge won't be fair when they take the bench. Then I think citizens need doing gauge with their senators, particularly home state senators, but all senators and express their view about the judge and ask the Senator to take a good hard look at their merits. We see that happen in the supreme court process. And I'm and I'm not suggesting by the way that we should politicize the process because I think it's important to look at judges based on their qualifications, perhaps as citizens we need to encourage our senators not to rubber stamp the pick of the party that they come from. But to ensure this is someone who will be fair to all of their constituents once they take the bench. So speaking of judges, your husband is a judge. He is he's running for sheep Justice of Alabama supreme court. He's currently a trial. Judge a Circuit Judge in Jefferson County running to be the supreme court chief Justice. Okay. And so this is a different. Process, then we have federal judges that are appointed by president and confirmed by Senate, but within states, then we have some judges who are in fact voted on right, right? And it's, you know, it's difficult in some states judges run without affiliation to a political party in Alabama judges wrong with either an all or a D after their name, and that's distressing to a lot of lawyers judiciary should never be a political product. But that's just that's the system that we have I live in Chicago where a huge portion of our ballot. Every time is judges, and I gets overlooked by a lot of people people to sort of get to the judge section and leave it all blank or vote. Yes on everybody because it's a lie. It's a lot for sort of regular citizens who don't know a lot about the judiciary to sort of sort out and figure out who they should be voting for. I think that's right and lawyers have an obligation to help educate. Communities about judges, for instance. And my husband Bob's race. A number of Republicans former supreme court justices and also Republican judges have come forward to say, you know, judge Vance's and good judge. She's not political. He just rules on the lawn and gets the job done. And that's the kind of judge we need as lawyers. We really have an obligation where judges are elected to talk to our communities. A judge in Jefferson County who I think is fantastic judge. She's a criminal judge has done a lot of really important reform work, and she happens to be a Republican. So I've been really outspoken with friends and voters to make it clear that that I think that she's a really good that I'm not voting for judges because they're Republicans are Democrats. But because they owner the rule of law and our elections like this elections for things like chief Justice are they as a glee as the rest of politics is right now, you know, we're seeing especially right now this close to the election, so many attack ads from people. In in places where people won't debate and things like that is that also true in these kind of campaigns. So historically that's been true in Alabama. I remember this one it was a huge post card that they mailed the last time my husband ran, and it was this sort of grainy ugly picture of him as a puppet marionette with President Obama pulling the strings, which we laughed about hysterically right because President Obama was no more compelling bombs rulings in a courtroom than anybody else was. But that's the sort of thing that gets done. I think it's regrettable. I suspect we'll see that again in in these Alabama races as we head into this weekend before the election. But I think that voters are smart and voters understand that people who run outs like that are trying to manipulate them. Not help them make a decision about who the right judge to vote for is is so in Alabama, you do not have early voting. And so everyone who down in Alabama is going to be voting on Tuesday. Day you can obtain an absentee ballot. That's the only mechanism for early voting. If for instance, you'll be out of state or stuff like that. But typically almost all of the voting happens between seven and seven on election day. Do you anticipate there are places where there will be really long lines or problems with that kind of system? Yes, I think we will have problems one problem that we've already seen in the last week and then making an effort to deal with involves college students who registered devote and who's been placed on the inactive voting list. Technically that means that they can still go in vote they'll have to sign an update form, and although the secretary of state and others said, it's not a big deal. It really is a big deal because it takes a lot of extra time. It's confusing. If your student, and you've got an hour and a half to vote, and you can't stick around for three hours in a lot of the county's the poll workers aren't completely up to speed. On the rule. And so they'll give people on the inactive list of provisional ballot instead of a regular ballot which involves additional hoops to jump through and the whole point of this. I think what it comes down to is that in this country voting is a right. It's not a privilege. You shouldn't have to jump through hoops. Like this even though some of this oppression. That goes on is technically legal. It's reprehensible, and we need to do more to make it easy for people to vote not make it more difficult for them. The current Alabama secretary of State John Merrill, is notoriously. Sort of terrible on Twitter. I actually got an argument with him on Twitter last week along with I think everyone else in the country. But yeah, I mean, I think this is certainly a place where you know, the secretary of state seems have a a lot of power and seems to be doing things to suppress the vote while simultaneously doing things like blocking constituents on so. Yeah, it's interesting. You know, Alabama already has an ID law in effect, which means you have to have certain specified forms of of identification to vote one situation. I was involved in involved in ninety year old woman who had voted in every election she'd ever been eligible to vote in but suddenly found herself without a valid driver's license and had to get a state issued ID but didn't have the mobility to go to the fourth four four registrar's office in the county. She lived in and secretary, they technically makes available this mechanism where there's a mobile unit, but it wouldn't come to her house individually and. It was really a struggle to get identification. There are just so many examples of ways that we make it difficult for people to vote and then politicians, you know, berate people for low turnout, we really need to look at some form of easy registration for everybody. When they turn eighteen they're so very little voter fraud that goes on in this country. It's not typically significant the amount of suppression. That goes on is significant. And it is the problem. You have four children are any of them. No voting age three. Are they excited to be voting? This time around they are always excited to be voting. Our kids have always voted from the earliest state that they were available and voting days in our family much like for me growing up have always been a family event where even before the kids could vote we took them to poll with us talk with them about how important voting was and seal the deal with often really good breakfast afterwards. So. So I feel bad for our fifteen year old who can't vote this time. But we'll be along for the ride. My seven year old tried to convince me that we should lower the voting age to four so he and his brother couldn't, you know. I think that's wonderful one thing that we need to do is we need to raise a generation of voters. And and look at the US attorney in Alabama. I knew that when I was doing voting rights litigation. Probably a lot more people who Republicans would become enabled vote than Democrats. It was never about the politics. It never is for me. I think that we live in a participatory democracy. If we want to keep the constitutional Republic that the founding fathers gave us then we all need to engage. We all need to vote. All right. So the last thing I wanted to talk to about is knitting, which is one of the most important topics of any lately. So I understand that you used to run a small yarn dyeing business. You know, I did my grandmother actually. Taught me how to die when I was a kid, and at some point, I don't even remember when now I had died some Norne for friends, and they started hammering me about dying and selling it and almost just as a lark. I put a little bit of it up on at sea in for a while had a really nice hobby business on the side. And then to understand correctly that you stopped selling it. So there wouldn't be a conflict of interest. Yeah. So this is I guess it's really interesting in light of the Trump administration and ethical standards. They're one of the conditions prior to my -pointment as US attorney was that. I completely shuttered that business to avoid any possibility of a conflict of interest, which I did I so are you knitting much these days, you know, I've actually been knitting a little bit less for the last couple of weeks than usual. But I'm constantly knitting. I've got I can't say how much yarn 'cause then my husband would find out, you know. Downstairs, and I actually have a I've got a hat that. I'm in the middle of knitting. And a couple of sweaters that I've also got a couple of projects plan to cast on this weekend to knit on for election night. That's excellent. I have a huge, Hugh if things I want to get back to knitting once we're not podcasting every day of the week. Right. I think we'll all be much more efficient and others after this election. I think up -solutely I find that niggers in general seem to be very very logical people very rational people who, you know, whatever their political beliefs may be seem to to care about other people. I think maybe that's that's part of being someone who will take the time to create something from scratch for another person. You know, there seems to be about the right community. Niggers never ask. If you're a Republican or democrat before they give you help they just wanna see succeed. And so people who have very different beliefs work successfully together, maybe. We need more niggers in in government. Hey, I'm all for that. Let's start the niggers party. I liked that. I'm all for that. Let's we're starting at here. And right now niggers are United. All right. I'm gonna run for president on the in part of the knitter party. Outstanding. I'm with you. All right. Is there anything else that you wanted to be sure we talked about? I think we've covered the waterfront. Yeah. Absolutely. Yeah. I'll be can do. Now is, you know, get out the vote and make sure that if we've got friends or neighbors, and especially young people who might need a nudge to go out and vote for the first time that we make sure everyone gets out there and exercises their right to vote while they still have it. Well joyce. Thank you so much for joining me today. This has been really fun, and I hope to get back to a time when our rights are not so much under attack and Lurs can can go back to you know, sort of the the quiet dub, maybe next time. We can talk only about knitting because there will be no more need to talk about the other stuff. I sort of doubt it. Yeah. That that's a lovely thought though.

MNF Picks, Bowl Games, Look Ahead Lines - 12.21

"Pointers are winters more sports gambling. Show coming out of the pat mcnamee. Corporate offices i am telling dick's the aforementioned pat mcafee sitting right next to me. How's it going and enjoy a delicious well. Enclosed orioles someone inside whoever thanking off of sitting next to him as a man that that gives out picks for on sports. No one cares about. Thank you tony. I'd say it but our winters winters over you can be green bean and how you do or On the What's that thing called. The face machine facetime based on on the facetime former nfl gm hoses lombardi line. The gm shuffled pod subscribe to the daily coach and writes for the athletic michael. The how are you doing today sir. I'm good. I'm licking my wounds but i'm good as i said on that show layup still interested in that spot. I mean how do you how do you go upstairs and not change that that. That is the bigger issue. The raff pushing the ball forward. On his own accord he slid. Then you go and review that and you still get it wrong. That is more the issue because we talked about this and said some things about river on river on does that and river on sways games in a way from our favorite then this a really smart man associate athletic director at vanderbilt and and he was been in the nba for years and he used a wanted. The nfl to you don't win. The ball is spotted on fourth dow right and when you don't get the fourth down change of possession the ball should technically flip over to the other side because now it's going in the other direction i never saw because it's on the right hash. Flip that thing that left dash of dash or and then just what so you gain like six whatever but that. That thing was like well. That wasn't needed six inches. So you're right about that. Ralph and the dolphins patriots now to jesus christ mike which one is the. I don't know which guy is. He stinks he has like chisel jaw line like an old so on my show a mike palm who's an astute referee analysis. He runs the sportsbook. At the the circa he runs the circuit. But not the sports vol the sports book and he's a heavy gamble of soccer like but he was. He turned me on them. So this fred allen guys horribly. It was in the acc and they hired him. He's really bad. I i so on my sheet. I stay. I just put him in there. The referee stay away. I took game. Pats up that game pad took the right side. He took the dolphins. Did damn right the patriots. Because i thought you know they're the patriots but they're just not the patriots anymore. How did how do we all do this weekend. Dog shit one four and one. I oh my god. Four and three because it's thursday night thanks. Hey every every cardinals or eagles by half a point. But i think we have to do this for the podcast when we go in and we have. I mean you've got to put up there you are with. Are you doing this and you got to have credibility. By dylan's seahawks. Were up twenty three russell. Wilson wanted to be a rapper again and throw the ball There's been some games we've lost this year. Though by the way that our complete bullshit every fucking weekend the box. I mean every game the only one all say was probably a bad. Pick the niners. Because nick mullins really stinks. I don't think he'd picked up anymore. I think they died win. There were no longer allowed to play in san francisco. And i'd go on the road would even play in the game. I thought they would handed all handed off. I thought they would run it. You know you hop on that cardinals. Mice three and a half right now. That thing will be up to six by the weekend. Talk about the niners for one second. Do you think shanahan's idea that he can make any quarterback good. Been a little bit kinda messed with with the performance and nick volunteer. No doubt no doubt there was always actually look good and the more he played the lessees. Look good i agree. You can't take just anybody. I think depot was the he was the straw that stirred the drink. Though he was massive that game they won against the rams he went down again now. They stink again stinky. Don't have a home field. Either they have been wholesome family situations like. It can't be good. The cannot be like is pat as a player. You'd be sick but especially with your teams hurt you guys are just. It feels like they're now granted. Everybody's been punished because twenty twenty but having a live on in a hotel for a few weeks bet you the first couple of days spree nicer some guys. You know what i mean. Get away from the family and everything like that for a couple of days. A little bowl game type thing but what are you talking about two three weeks time. Plus whenever you're not i mean it's just they had no shot there. We should have known that we have seen that happen. We should've known we all thought about that. There's a lot of those games by zone when you're watching. I'm like why didn't i. We talked about this last week. Why didn't i do like there's a couple of games. I was watching yesterday. And i was like well. How did i even think that this wasn't going to be honest. I never even looked at the ravens. Jags line oh my god. I literally fucking wasn't even on my radar. I don't know how it wasn't mine. Either because i my numbers on the jags was like okay and it was like a nine and taking the jags and the point. So i would have had to take in the ravens and i. Oh well you know. And then i thought maybe they would cover band. You know ever since the jags back to recover. New cleveland been reluctant. They're in a very different world now all of a sudden after that loss yesterday that they had i mean the the jets. Winning has changed a lot of people's lives of sudden michael. Do you remember if we ask you this. Do we do you now. Now if you're jet the jets. Gm how much does it change. Do you go with fields. Do you stick with darnold. You try to trade the second pick. Why would you have to do is compare darnold to the field right to justin fields and whomever else mack jones and say. Okay my guys as good as he's better than you've got to really do a good job evaluating darnold paris 'cause which you can't do is get caught in its new like seals is new is feels actually better than this guy you know is fields really better than darnell. And if the if he's significantly better you know. Al davis used to say all the time. You know fuck it. I'm not looking to get a little bit better. I want to get a lot. He what he was saying to me was. Don't bring in if you if we have an office of gardens fifty eight player. We're not replacing them with a fifty nine player because by the time we train them and teach them. You know it takes too long and we've only incrementally gotten better but if we could find a sixty six player then we're going to make that switch the same conversation you gotta have with darnold as release. These are guys. How about justin feels that big ten championship. I think he hurt his draft stock. Now i think he did to. I think you really did too. And that's thanks because he was out his guy you know and covert happened and everything like that. But that's not a guy. I don't know maybe he will be. Maybe we'll be wrong. But i'm not selling. I'm not saying you sell the farm to get that guy if someone is willing to do it if someone's willing to give up and give the jets like an rg three type contrary but if not. I don't know. Mike what are you. we've never. What are your thoughts in the college football playoff committee. Look i thought. Am should have been it. I'm not sure that notre dame are. I'm not sure that house state deserve to be in it. I thought ohio state got pass because the big ten is not very good i didn't think they dominate the big ten. And you know. I think the southeast conference is better. I think notre dame deserves to be there based on their play through the year i vowed replay. I think nick saban's power ranks. Did you see that online today. Now we only saw davos. Both ohio state had ohio state. Five i think i would have been more inclined to be. We were nicholas. I would put them in their four that alabama florida game was the game of the year on saturday man. That was good. Foot kyle trask. I would very intrigued if i was the steelers. I draft kyle. Trask i know he sits for a year behind. Ben yeah he's going to get picked up early especially with allie's playing and also fuck. Those guys are going to go on the top ten. That's why you have to conveyor darnold to them you think he goes top ten. I believe follow these quarterback all these teams the quarterback. They'd all those quarterbacks. Don't wait to the dance comes to them. You gotta go get them tree lance get jumped by those guys probably because he didn't play this year is my assumption. Mike you could put. The colts will be back there. The patriots will be back there. the teams that nicole. Chicago's back there. They need quarterbacks washington could be back. they need quarterbacks. I mean how. Sit there one come so they. Do you think the most likely to the patriots quarterback next year. I think it's probably somebody in the draft. That would be my guess unless san francisco. Let's go garoppolo. Yeah that's been in. Who did your now. I mean we have this year so maybe now that they're eliminated. They'll place them. There's no way bella check doesn't let the jets beat them that last week. I mean there's no why would out. I mean frank right retreat you know be a parish tankan go home because there's no sense and i mean why would you wanna play against large twice a year. What about took even to. Kobe could go back to the pats. If jimmy decode jacoby everybody kind of knows what. He's a great kid. Great leader just doesn't have great anticipation. You are such a savage. Hey is it i- everyone's hot on the bills could beat the chiefs. The colts our team. That could beat the chiefs cycle. It's a lot. I'm not so i've bills can do whatever they want. I watched him play. The chiefs wants and it wasn't close to the coast. You gotta be able to run the ball. You gotta take time off the clock. I mean like i said today on the carolina formulas the one you got to utilize. You've gotta run. You've got to keep the ball thirty six minutes and the only way you do that. Is you gotta run. You've got to have good five. You have extensive run game plan but man if they wanna win they do the earned it on but like yesterday the longest play they have was a twenty four yard run by the homes and then they had a twenty three yard tasks to watkins. In a way past to robinson me. They kept the ball in front of them. The problem was they were nine fourteen on third down stopping them. They were fifty percent on third down. And you're the gm for that team. You just gotta hang on tight and just be like the boys will turn on the list. The boys will turn it on. Whatever the andy reid even doing the same thing. Because there were some drops early hiccup board i. I don't know i 'cause they seem vulnerable. Sometimes they made mistakes too. Is the big thing for me or early. May ask and then whenever they don't want to anymore they don't it. Just you know the you know the extended play where patrick mahomes runs around. It's going to work like at some point. It's going to work early. it was it though. It's just like a wild thing to have if you're a part of that like for instance upon her users like sitting there watching along. I'd be intrigued to just of hang out and be like the boys are gonna turn on whenever they have to. I know they know it's just that's the way it is at this point. I didn't consider this though. They they'd be carolina by two. They beat vegas by four. They beat tampa by three. That wasn't a close game but they won by three. They beat denver by six by six. They beat miami by six and they beat new orleans. Five three in all those games other than carolina in vegas the last four. They've been in complete domination of the games. And yet they've been under under a touchdown and they don't cover and they don't but they're incomplete control the game tell you what if i'm you just brought up the dolphins there. I am praying that they continue to win. And if the steelers somehow find to. I'd much rather play the dolphins in the baltimore. Ravens and blouse. Yeah yeah yeah. The ravens by. They rather played miami dolphins in the ball. You on defense but chan gailey run hawking ladder jan galas ninety five years old run. You could be saving the playbook for the play. It a baltimore ravens. Miami dolphins betcha. I'm just saying you know is better than the devil. You don't my friend. You already beat the ravens slinging player man to is a winter man. Five in two. Would you rather have play my. I would definitely rather play miami. I love miami's defense. But i'll take the quarterback won't throw the ball over twenty years. I mean he had. The lungs past was fifteen yard assist because he had no weapons. Mike those so you got. You're talking about making by the way we catch you fixing a contact their yard house. You not yet did you have you. Don't want it. I did i did but then when you have and you get the fifty like i am you start. You can't see up close and you start cheaters. Cheaters yeti mike i got i got i guess. Not in that measure here. Modest is code. Sit like in a between the wind zone. You know the. I got sick. I'm going to have to get glasses. Cheaters get some cheaters. I'll get their glasses. I'll do that thing with the the glass. I get the context because it's just easier. I put them in my. I don't think about where am i to lose them. A lotta talian that yeah. That's migrated came over on that boat. They got stuck. They went up there mostly like in this little beach town. There's a lot. They're all from the same little island in italy. they're all from capri. I went to france beautiful really. Yeah i'd like to go to italy sometime. You should take your wife. You should actually. They're offering a little island called each. Which is the island right next to capri tights. Beautiful magnificent capri as wear. Caesar used to go into the blue grotto. And kinda just lay in there and do what off the coast of naples. Boaty doing that grotto. I this i know. I don't know if it was like hess grotto or not. I'm not sure where it was this. I don't know sorry. We got off track there. What do you think about the the Cowboys eagles line starting to pick them. I i was surprised by that. Because i thought the eagles would be favorite like my line on that. I thought the eagles should have been a two and a half point favorite own in. So you bet that now you to put that no no i just. I did my early lines based on last week's power number's just to see where it would be. And then i'll then i'll redoing tomorrow. After all the games play any other surprising. look headlines. Let me think. Let me get all dolphin. Dolphins minus saturday run through real quick a light on the dolphin leader dean through. That's going to be a speak up. You feel like it. Vikings at saints on christmas day. We had a friday and christmas day. Game which is awesome Saints minus seven on not taking the vikings. I'll tell ya all over the. Although my number on that game there was seven point. Five how mike. Zimmer has to take some responsibility for that yesterday does he not see ties. A fucking defensive mastermind and his nagy is nagy not gonna fire now. I think they probably keep them on the guy that had the mitchell. Trubisky jersey aussitot love. God they run it back with. Nagy admits it'll be alexis love. I would love. What would that record be. If they never went to nick foles if they kept maserati mitch and there. Are they competing for the nfc north. These are the questions. Yeah i mean. I think that's a great question. Mazorra giradi hundred forty three yards against the vikings. The last time they played 'em died. I mean amazon. We had that was one of the games. I had the bears of because the bears had always play well against against minnesota. I took the bears in that game and we lost nine thousand nine hundred thirteen and they had a total of one hundred. Forty nine yards of offense. Thank you very much nick. Foles bucks lines. Lines are plus nine and a half at home. Probably stay away from that one. I'm about betting on nine. And a half that opened over seventy seven and a half zoli up to nine and a half. that's gonna be a tough one. Niners at the cardinals minus three and half cards seems seems light but very does seem kind of small dent. It i mean. I can't believe he's got nick. Mullins was the star. Why wouldn't you go back to c. J. bathroom came in late. yesterday again. Looked good road at you see them throat at deep ball. They want to bear. God i board it has car is the starter in vegas. I which. I don't think it's right. Oh yes that's the next game. Dolphins at raiders dom are minus two and a half going to the desert. Who start scotty. Cars trying to rush back. They said ten to fourteen days. I thought he was done to. The pop is growing. What happened if he can get back how what happened. What he's got going on that hand cova for how serious that was. He's leaves that big game in. He comes back next game. That's an interesting. He can't possibly have any movement if he comes back. He's a sitting duck back there. What if he does then. You have to wonder a lot more tough to ask. His brother says his brother. His brother bashes kickers and punters the time and i respect it like. If you play the nfl you can do that. Put the bash kicker. Some the games on the line name. They win the game. You know why would you not like kicker. Hey i appreciate that. Respect that but a lot of people that get on. Tv they buy into the narrative that all these people have never played the game before about. Kickers abutters them mattering and by the way. If you play the nfl you can say whatever the fuck you want. But that guy comes after all the time. I'm like to chile fucking dave out. If you're from david call us fries. The chiefs are only ten and a half point. Favorite against the falcons seems to play games. Tight for whatever reason. Well then the dot be whether seattle's favorite against the rams the rams let say about the chiefs chiefs are only favored by what. Ten ten against the falcons at home. How is that not a touchdown score out of the house and it's in kansas city. Does falcons dude. Hey if they play anything like they did in the first half matt ryan was looking like he was trying to prove to people. I can be worse. Some of that money on guaranteed the next couple of years. Maybe maybe vegas things steelers are gonna lose tonight and then the chiefs have Nothing to play for now. We need the steelers to win tonight. So the bills rest everybody re week. Seventeen is a quite quite a little thing that we're paying attention to talk about this offense or how many people are going to chicago next week. Down jacksonville seven half at jacksonville for the bears. Jeez goes to eight before. What if the jags just ruin it. You know what they just go win a game and all the players and coaches are throat about that but then the organizations got he was in the acc already. Fan base is going to be massive. You forget now this kid. He can come back another year. He wants mike. You know he's not gonna campbell here. Boston connors been saying the entire time. he's engaged. He can come back another year of eight even if you don't play if he says okay. I'm going to not risk getting hurt. I'm just going to hang out with my girlfriend. And i'll enter the draft the next year. But who's going to end up on a bad team anyways if you're a gm and he does that. Don't you kinda wanna smack him in the mouth. I mean you you gotta talk to him. But i mean he. I'm not saying he's going to do it. But that's the leverage that he does have you got l. y. Used it elway used it. I mean andrew lucked use it. But there's guys in have had that didn't bo bo jackson. You drafted the raiders. And say i'm not doing it and go. Yeah but but that was. This was hugh culverhouse owned the bucks. Who was might have been the cheapest man alive and nobody was wanted to play for the bucks. So is the box that drafted. he said. Go play baseball. i'm not doing said i'm out. And then steve. They drafted steve beyond football on the xfl draft and then he went down there and he was a disaster and then we traded for eighty six and we gave them a second round pick in two barlow gave them a million dollars worth of cash. And we've got steve young you said. Xfl the excess excess us. I'm sorry usfl. That was that had a little bit of a run the usfl he did good players in that league. Trump had a team in that league. Clair's in that league. We had a. We had a usfl draft where you got to pick like the houston oilers. They got micro zero out of that biz a lot of good players in that draft which three rounds it was really good and then we ended up trading for steve young. When coach fos called a meeting he made everybody go upstairs of the meeting and he was going to tell them we were treated for steve young asked everybody who was in favor of put their hands up. You didn't have one vote off. The other room said fuck it. I'm doing. That's the type of decision making i like. Yes fiction that rams seahawks game has massive. what is it for. Division rams ad seahawks. Seahawks are minus. One of god. Seok seemed to not be broken anymore. Rams just by the way how do you feel if you are the new york jets organization in the rams head coach after losing to your team in week. Fifteen of the nfl season goes. I'm embarrassed and sick to my stomach that we fucking lost in that team. Like if you're the jets that's hilarious. Shot from mcveigh but excited how they bounce back on the broadcast. They said that this rarely happens. But mcveigh called gas during the week and said like hey. I'm watching tape. I'm impressed how hard your team is playing for. You bubba with your current record that weird you mike. Yeah it is. And i thought he would it after the game but i i don't disagree with the re. The raiders should've lost to the jets. Are they even that seattle game. Forty two six. They miss those field. Goals the jets have played hard. They're not any good. They played hard though. They're up on the pitchers that whole game to hold on to gaze. Take that personally. They could have three wins to gaze. Take that personally And say do you think he would or no. It seemed like there are friends okay. So he called him. It was like yo. I expect this team. Yeah all right because you can see how gays would be. And i took that personally. You know what i mean. That could potentially be something. Tell you another big one. Titans packers this weekend. Big game sunday night. Football to minus three and a half star opened a four and a half moving a little bit anchor. Money line fifty six and a half down fifty five. What do you think on that one. I feel like that's a tough match. Because i think this defense is so bad on tennessee. Hillocks floyd on derrick. Henry running against that packers towed. If you see in the second quarter that he is moving it's just lock it in like if he's moving early against them when they get tired. It's only gonna get worse. He it is. It's kind of awesome to watch that thing. It's it's literally just like a boxing match where you're just you're just beating them down and then eventually they just quit in the game of the week next week might be carolina panthers and the washington book. I love carolina. I have just about bringing up carolina's plus one and a half at washington. One team score one team. Cannot whose quarterback dwayne twenty five times this week long throwing for house. Good washington be if a quarterback think about it well and then act colts at steelers. Steelers are currently minus three colts. Getting through there is very intriguing. We'll see does yeah. We don't even know how the steelers are going to be. They just lost two games in a row of winning eleven against the bungles to make. Could you imagine if the steelers lose tonight. There were all those people in survivor would go completely. I mean survivor. There was. I think there were twenty two people that took the rams in the survivor pool and lost that that circa million dollar survival one which there was eighty nine people in it going into this weekend and i think now it's down to sixty something but think about it. You plan it out all year and you do it and you say okay weeks fourteen. I got the. I got the rams. I'm gonna take the rams and use them against the jets and you get and basically you get like jackie. Junior they've got shot from behind vigo gets shocked to hold on. So how's that thing work. You just have to make one bet a week. You make one better week. Usually most of the guys planet out the thanksgiving day game is the thanksgiving weekend is is its own week so there's eighteen weeks you've got to make a bet and you can only use. The team wants on. Isn't it money line to just whoever wins. Whoever you can only use a team once wrecked ties the loss. Oh geez how many and then it just keeps going until there's one thousand people in it. Now they're down to like sixty five. I think twelve the steelers tonight. Oh i would have lost week one. Because i was taking guy. Dilutes winner sent me a direct message. Asked me for advice about. I think he was asked me vice about this us. Asking for advice on the raider jet game he was nervous about taking the raiders in that game so we switched off he took seattle and then he took the rams against he saved the rams for the take. I told him i was nervous. About the raiders scoring back and all that and so i mean he ultimately did what he had to do but he and now against be he gets. He got shot for mind on the ramp. I mean i came out of nowhere. There were twenty three at one. Point was fucking bad. Dude made no sense. That's game that's gambled all right. Speaking of tonight's game steelers at bengals. Fourteen and a half is the line under forty and a half. The total sixty two percent of the bets of the tickets are on the steelers but only forty three percents of the money line open at twelve. It's up to fourteen and a half what you think might Shefty just reported. The james conner will not play tonight. He's downgraded the out. Benny snell getting a start for the pittsburgh still art. That's right there it is. I mean look. I can't take ryan finley in this game. I'm sorry i just can't do it. This the bengals when they had borough got beat by twenty four ryan finley. Under what was it. Ryan finley under yards at one eighty seven and a half is worth a look especially gets steelers de. We're going to say. I love the under in this game because i don't think the bengals can score forty forty four. That's very low tonight. The steelers offense has been fucking. Lighten anybody up the lines over fourteen and a half. Yeah almost don't you have to take sensing to do it but don't you. Steelers are the seventh team to be a favorite of seven points or more on the road in december or laters. It's two thousand three previous six teams or one in five against the spread Steelers ben rothlisberger to eleven eighty s when they're a road favourite of ten or more just someone that being banned thirteen and twenty four against the spread of a double digit favorite. They always play down to their competition by steelers on a full week arrests for the first time in a long time as well. Paul that is why. I don't like the spread full game. I don't like the minus seven and a half either for half. I will take the steelers first quarter minus three good bat. That's a good out there. Gotta think outside the box on this one. Funny you say that like that one funny says well i hold on you. Want to join him on that one. Yeah okay mic. Pylon one as well i because i don't wanna play the game so i to play something here tonight. Show keep reminding me that. I'm gonna play that as well. The first quarter thing and i'm also gonna take a benny snell is in anytime touchdown. Score plus pittsburgh steelers win. So i'll do. Benny snell touchdown score. Plus pittsburgh steelers win which is anytime touchdown slash match winner and get that at a plus one fifteen feels good. Benny snell junior touchdowns or birds dealers win plus one fifteen. That's plus one fifteen last one fifteen. I just bet that gonna be my only issue. I know you. The steelers have been bad in the first quarter. But my issue is the second quarter. Tony is minus four. And a half. And i don't like it and they outs. They outscored the bengals twelve. Nothing in the first game in the first quarter and they also outscored the browns ten nothing in the first quarter and called the only reason. I don't like it. Because i see if they win the toss i see. I don't know a pick six For pick six mak- to the nose at pittsburgh d- plus twenty five and i first craft first quarter point differential the cincinnati bengals us twelve. This was from october. Hey that sounds like thirty. Seven points are favorable. october In the twenty game since two since the start at twenty nine thousand nine season the steelers have only soared on one of their opening drives. That's the only reason. Why don't like them. They're brainy fichtner. Like i said a bunch of times worse offense coordinator in the national football league. He doesn't like to score on the first drive. So it's just okay so that makes sense then that means tonight. He'll do obstacles. Were betting true. Hopefully fresh you know what. I mean for the first time in a long time guns blazing guns blaze artery fresh for the listeners. Mike what are you taking them tonight. Because you have to take the gump whenever. That's what they line. I'm taking that nice first-quarter minus three. Benny snell and steelers win. For plus one fifteen bingo taking anything because show yes is under banning. Show no the under what so then. It's twenty twenty one fourteen. And i i need a score for the steelers to tie it up and i'm rooting against them to take over. No go win. Thirty eight dan. Tony just pet the cat game show. I'm not ben. Tonight's game gay bull picks or the rest of the week. How 'bout this. We only got a couple of weeks. Left can't miss these opportunities week. Sixteen on the horizon tote right there couple days away. Can't do christmas games coming up already. It's twenty twenty one. Why oh all right here. I'll give you this. How about the benny snell. Touchdown steeler win. I drive puppet. Here you can go against punt is minus one fifty five. I'll go with that. Wow pittsburgh sears. I drive punt minus one fifty five. I think it's verges driving. That's not a bad bad. Great steelers defer good for you finding that that popped up right in front of its kickoff. Return to the house. And i think that's a thing that the loss that's off all right just need a punt here. All right mike. Thank you so much Doing now wednesday. Yeah yeah. we're off thursday. Yeah we'll do wednesday. thanks guys. Good luck he's so fast. I do have some college. Football bowl game picks for the next couple of days. What you find him.

Friday Four

"Alot I declared for the NFL draft. Those seven words spike Hyler Murray, they believed that he likes baseball, but wolves football that was in his us up picking up the baseball bat, and I'm not looking back. You know, seeing some faces. I like the fact that we beat them. I don't think anyone would have believed that he'd be fighting opportunities. Come. We have to say. For him his young player. I would sit it down Jim beg. I am another win over the number one ranked team in the country. I compare role players that play LeBron James to house cats, and we'll bras not there. They have to become alley cats. Welcome to the Friday four outside the lines. I'm Ryan Smith so much to get to today. Big changes at Michigan state. Lebron is house cats. No, that's not a bad. Jeremy sitting next to soldier boy on the plane. Then you have so much talk about truth. Yeah. Test most biggest thing about that. Right now. Only. We'll get to that. But we begin with our big story. The biggest poise of the week isn't quite a choice yet hasn't been decided on declaring for the NFL draft. And now let the battle begin between football teams that want him and baseball teams that are looking like they have to have him. I mean, that's the thing. Here will baseball win the bid for Kyla Murray. It is it's a fascinating battle between baseball and football. Both of them seem to need him. Right there for valid for to be valid one of the things that I find. So fascinating about Murray's decision is if you look at the long view, he's got to go pro football, right? He's going to make more money. Nine years. It's the average for a first round pick for long jetty, which is fascinated any first round pick not just quarterbacks. I was blown away by that. And then the short view really wanna play Stockton in stopping Telefonia able as opposed to go into the show. So yeah, the sweepstakes between baseball and football baseball doing everything in their power to get them. But I think if he's making purely financial decisions gotta go football. I grew up on this is the right decision. Not just I pocket book. But what's clearly in his heart is well, the kid loves football. But I'm more interested in this. How he can change the way the NFL views quarterbacks, obviously, he's at the low end of the height requirements or the height prototype for NFL quarterback eighty five nine maybe maybe. But here's the thing. This idea that there's a prototype is turned into sort of a mold like if you're outside of it. Then we don't consider you now while it might be ideal to be six four UNIFIL changing. It's more like the college game, and I just refuse to accept it. Just because you're outside the norm. Means you can't somehow successful five nine. I've watched this kid play. I've watched him beat my team's color Maury complete football in the NFL. This is all the striking me, though, is one of those combine situations where guy comes in blows you away the combine dozen credible job. I mean, look, he's very talented athletically, but what is interesting about this is he has become the story not only this week, but this off season since college football ended, and I wonder if teams are getting caught up in that hype a little bit because before this decision making process came up. He was ma- maybe third round or maybe second round or now it's surefire first round. I'm always little wary, though, when we say, he's gotta do this. This is what makes it right? We are all exceptional will old enough to remember when Bo Jackson. Everybody said Bo Jackson choosing football that there is no possible way. And he was much less of a sure thing in the eyes of many it wasn't a quarterback. He was not a quarterback, but at that point running backs whereas biggest quarterback it was a different NFL. And he was considered a transformative player at that position. He was considered one of the four five greatest running backs of all time. So it was inconceivable particularly Hugh Culverhouse who own the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the rights that I pick that he would choose baseball. And what it does say SIA. I don't like what you guys did. It got me disqualified from playing college baseball for a season. I believe in myself. I'm gonna go play baseball the long-term play. We all know the ceiling is higher in baseball. What are you going on jeopardy and earning potential if you're the best in the sport? What do you guys make of this? The idea that baseball seems to be going all inform and part of that pitch is sending this marketing team yet. You don't know one sing. Oh baseball player, excuse me. One single baseball player out. There isn't a household. Name is Mike trout a household name. What do you think about baseball's pitch to get him to stay, especially if he's favoring football. Let's us this question. If collar Murray were in baseball right now, if you're in the major leagues would he be the most famous baseball player second. Maybe you're put about household as Harper. I would love to Q rating Bryce Harper versus collar Murray Heisman Trophy winning quarterback column or versus Bryce Harper. I'm not trying to insult. No, no. I in England Keri Harper. This what does that say about baseball and their ability to promote stars that guy who won the Heisman better would come in? And be the all the marketing commercials, you want all that isn't gonna add up to three hundred million dollars. Which is what we're paying based -dorsements. They're not very rarely that much in football right asked balls different equation. But let let's talk about I believe the number something like there have been seventy five contracts and baseball that are one hundred billion dollars guarantee or more. There have been in football. What? Okay. So forget about marketing money lets us about salary, and let's talk about head trauma to let's talk about the long-term effects of playing football versus baseball. Let's talk about the likelihood of suffering career ending injury in one sport versus the other. They're lotteries choose baseball. All right. So we're. Oh, we're. I'm surprised I. You really wanna grind it out in Stockton, California. There's no guarantee he's ever even going to make it to the show. True. They're not they're up there. There is big upside potential financially with the NFL despite there, not being guaranteed contracts and the game has come to him to Will's point. So I I would be surprised if he goes the baseball. I appreciate Jeremy's gambling nature. I truly do. My goal for this metaphor. I love home run hitters, man. You're talking about there's potentially more money on the table in the long term with baseball. And you're right. But you're you're shying away from what is almost assuredly thirty five million dollars guaranteed in football building a five year contract for a first round quarterback. He's not going to get cut in those five. He's not gonna lose it, even if it's not guaranteed. So. The whole now go through that. How voters in baseball have made thirty five million dollars over the course of the age that leaders are not hot. That's a lot more than they're been. I don't know quarterbacks. I guarantee. All right. Well, I hope is watching because this is the discussion he's probably haven't around the dinner table. All right. So let's talk about a new category. We got here. Hot take the week. Now. Look there is nothing like a great hot take. We know that here it is. We'll knows that better than anybody. And by the way, the hot take this week, Tim Laker Legler took the Kate. I compare role players that play LeBron James to house cats. They get a warm saucer milk their belly rub. They lay by the fires very comfortable life and we'll abroad not there. They have to become alley cats and go out and hunt for their own food. And that's a hard just to make for any cat. Just now. I'll tell you one to be a house cat in Tim Legler's. But bottom line is it's accurate in some ways. I think some people have this misconception that hot takes somehow attention seeking inaccurate. There's just ideas. Others haven't thought of yet. This is Tim's right here. This is definitely one of the most if not the most original metaphors I've ever heard said about James, so I give it credit Pulitzer prize. The thing about it that I love it's almost diabolical because it's the best compliment you can give LeBron. But it froze a lot of shade. And a lot of people. Right. I mean, there are dozens of players that this is this is fraud under the, but I got guys like Beasley who showed up at the game without a short without that. Right. What's happening? But they win the fact that there were teammates in the bronze world. Another way of saying guess, who's not getting Lakers tickets anytime soon ninety becoming increasingly clear that it's very very difficult to play basketball with LeBron James. It's just a fact he still one of the greatest of all time, but it's hard to be around the greatest of all time. And so Tim is right but easier said than done to turn from a house cat to Anneli cat. We'll see if these house cats are alley cat. We're just getting a playoffs playing out this metaphor. What's wrong? Okay. Well, we'll take a break from because coming up Jerry Jones, keeping his options open of corporate talking Jerry Jones mills here, plus might be gone. Right. And and by the way, we've got Jason GARRETT'S future. Another big story there under reported stories end villains coming up. What is Jason guards future? Technology truth brought to you by. Truth. You will certainly send any text about your supervisor to your supervisor, what's Janet's bangs. Did she lose that without weed whacker? Sent wait. No, no, no, no, no truth. It's so easy to switch and save on car insurance at geiko dot com. Janet, I think my phone was hacked or something. Gogo fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. Welcome back. Let's talk about are under reported stories. Now, I know you're thinking how could Jerry Jones being under reported story will has found a way I knew he would I think this is I think this is genuinely under reported for the potential ramifications. There's been a lot of angst among Dallas cowboy fan base about coaching changes at a minimum offensive coordinator at a maximum head coach and it hasn't happened. And Jerry Jones went on one zero five three the fan in Dallas this week. And he said hold your horses, hold your horses. It just just just give it some time. Listen. Would I put some kind of statement out that says this is what we're going to do when we might have an opportunity here next week this at the time when these things are thought about this time when they're chewed on. This is the time when you may see an opportunity next week. It didn't know existed this week and the area of personnel are in the area coachie, and I'm not trying to be cute here. Really? So let me just get destroyed. There could be an opportunity that comes up in the next week or two could be interesting that seems to suggest somebody still playing. So I think the obvious answer is about Sean Payton are the cab was pull Sean Payton from the saints. If it's not John Peyton done. I don't know what we're talking about Pete Carmichael offensive coordinator for the saying I'll check Josh. Daniels. What are we talking about? If not Sean Payton, I think it's gotta be Shawn Payne right on these look Scotland Hannah's on a very short leash. He's in. He's in trouble. Right. So Lynn ahead. I would look at those comments and not feel too good about them. But with Jerry anytime Jerry Jones says I'm not trying to be cute. Here is trying. Teed and Jerry wants to keep all of his options open. He's got the heart of a riverboat gambler. And don't be surprised look he wants control and garett gives him that control and a head coach. But he's putting people on notice every single year the Super Bowl is what he wants to win more than anything else. He said he right. The biggest check ever. And I think this is his way of saying, I'm not totally satisfied. I know we were three and five and we were dying and Derek brought us back from the brink. But this is Garrett. But if he really cares. There's one position has changed. Joel doesn't matter that not happening. That's never going to happen. Chet cost. Four bill. Check cost two picks ourselves four picks. Gruden was four picks. I believe is two one two two. I don't know what it would cost to get, Sean. Available. Yeah. And we'll the saints ever let that happen. Come on. I don't know. We'll see. But by the way, another under reported story here involving a cowboy in a different former cowboy in a different sport. Greg hardy. No, let's let's let's talk about him because what's interesting is fighting on a UFC card. This is you have fight night on ESPN. His debut, and he's been inviting a lot of questions, of course, about is you have skills, but also about his past. He was asked recently by area, honing our reporter here on UFC about that past. Look. Opportunities. Come and you have to take him. That's that's the only thing that I'm doing. I wouldn't be. I would be just like everybody you're talking about the wants to hate me and wants to throw me away as human being and devalue me and act like I don't have words if I sat here and said, I'm upset with you. Because you have an opinion you're allowed to have an opinion that should not affect the way that I feel about you because you've done wrong me, man. All right now, you remember had multiple charges against multiple accusations of domestic abuse. What do you guys think about those comments? I look I mean, the issues here are more than two fold. Here's a guy who was convicted in a bench trial in Charlotte of assaulting a woman named the co holder. He demanded trial by jury he came to a financial settlement. Prosecutors say with his accuser the charges were dropped. His record was expunged. Technically has no criminal record in that matter. He lost his NFL career eventually, although Jerry Jones gave him a chance for one year. So the question here is do you deserve a second chance. Do you deserve a second chance sport? Are we going to say what I do? Remember is twenty three years ago right with Mike Tyson got out of risen twenty four years ago. In a convicted rapist, the debate was not whether he should be allowed to continue boxing that was that was just assumed it would be allowed to continue. And now we were to place a very different place in twenty nineteen where there are discussions. He lost his football career is now that he can't be an athlete at all. Right. And that's an interesting question. And it goes beyond just to fill off question of who we give second chances to there's also a standard of who we deprive of their ability to make a living based upon a lack of any particular conviction lack of any particular record. I don't know what our standard will be. If we start going down the road of well, you were put on trial. Well, you won on appeal. Well, you were accused when we start busting people out of careers. What standard will we abide by what the same thing then apply to someone like Kareem hunt? I mean, these questions are keep coming up over and over again. That's right. That's a very good point about cream hunt. One of the. Things. It's fascinating as Dana white was on get up this morning. The head the head of you see and he was asked by Mike Greenberg. Do how have you heard any blowback about this at all has there been any concern? He said not one bit now in the US. Anyone listening, right? Then he's either not listening not being honest about that. But in the world, this is much less of a concern in the NFL world to your point about Kareem hunt. So look he Greg hardy villain. He's going to bring in a new audience into this debut tomorrow night on ESPN. Plus that's how he's being cast. He's also be Bill and who's getting a second chance. You have C is giving it to them. All right. So we'll have to see what happens again on ESPN. Plus the big fight will be. They're also coverage starts at six eastern. It's going to be incredible. And it's going to get a lot of attention. Welcome back now before we get to our here's let's talk villains of the week because there was a very big one this week out in Michigan state, of course, talking about John Engler resigning from Michigan state having made a string of comments really attacking survivors of Dr Larry Nassar, and this week is Michigan state made a move appointed. A new president you it did not seem possible. They he could make it any worse for himself. Many already had it was it was almost as if he was challenging himself to be as inconsiderate as rude as thoughtless as insensitive as he could possibly be saying that the Nassar victim some of them anyway seem to be enjoying their time in the spotlight. It was time to go right and more than that. You look at the situation. It ended up coming down to politics after the elections. You had new board members and those board members made a move. But for so long the survey. Vives would always stuns me about this. We know that there's litigation going on. We know that there's a limit to the kinds of talks they can have. But there is no language to survivors. That says we are on your side, we want to make this workout. They are even accused at different times of trying to slow down the settlement process. I just think there needs to be full sail change, this is just the beginning of it. He has zero sensitivity about this. What's remarkable to me is that one year ago, the board of trustees unanimously voted him to be MS us president and look at how he has made a horrible tragic situation even worse and even his eleven page resignation letter. He doesn't even have the class to mention anything about this controversy says nothing about it at all. So he is taking just a horrible situation. Made it so much worse. And there's a lot of blame to go around for his vote in the first place as president of MSU, not one to challenge the status villain of the week for John England, and I don't want to minimize. Where clearly comments repeatedly throughout the last year that have shown a lack of empathy lack of sensitivity. But your point Don that he was he was elected unanimously year ago to this interim position there was reason. And I'm a firm believer that your greatest strength is your greatest weakness for all of us in life. And he was brought in to wrangle lawmakers who were threatening to cut funding to mess you to get management and order at the university where there was a lack of accountability. He was brought into a bare knuckled top down authority bruiser, and he did and that comes and it doesn't have to. I'm not saying I'm excusing it or has to. But when your greatest strength is your greatest weakness, it can come with a lack of empathy elax of sensitivity. And that ended up bringing him saying they knew what they were getting and it might be part and parcel of what they asked for in the beginning. It could be, but there's a way as we all know lawyers. Now, there's a way to do that. And there's a way to try to do it without insulting. -pletely ear that either way story we talked about a little bit earlier Scotland Han he and the Cowboys decided to part ways that news just coming down. So that information. He is a very emotional while look at these two celebrating holiday, so we can get the photo the weeks. Okay. Let's get the phobic while they have a good cry. Take a look at our photo of the week. Now, we all heard about what happened at the White House Clemson going to the White House for those burgers and fries. But did you catch the candelabra? Right. Look at that. Where was Liberace by the way, President Trump showing off all those wonderful, burgers and fries. Guys. Go to the White House gets burners. But do you think I would go to the White House burgers? Yes. Jeremy's probably into the White House. What did you want the player to whatever party was the George W Bush? Wow. That's great. But we digress. At. All right. Let's talk heroes goven out. You've got a great one. Well, exactly coming right off of our photo of the week Monday night at the White House Clemson guard, Matt Badenhorst, look at big Macs. So lovingly stacked up on a White House play. He had two of them, and it caught fire on Twitter and on social media, and he really delivered a masterpiece. Here's what he said. He said, I mean, you're not just going to not eat the big Macs back in pile, right? And his responses to all this criticism six four three hundred and ten pound guard. We're fantastic. He gave a masterclass really on social media. How to handle incoming fire? He was just so funny and terrific and a hero for our time for what it's worth a lot of people on my show this week people one Super Bowl people have been to the White House to a man they said, we're fed nothing. Most of the time. We went really -absolutely. Nice spread. Okay. My hero of the week. It's going to be signed Williamson for still playing Duke for not hanging up as Scotty Pippin told them listen to this. I think he's locked up the big shoot. He'll definitely going to be the number one pick. I mean, I think he's done enough for basketball college basketball that is more about him personally. Now, I would shut it down. Let me let me stop playing. Let me actually. I would stop playing because I feel that he could Rhys a major injury that could really hurt his career. Wow. Bravo. Zion for not listening Scottie Pippen for not hanging. It up to continue to play likes about more than just your Bank account more than your resume is about experience playing Duke one year is one hell of an experience. But if he gets hurt so that, yeah, I like he's going to be. Jeremy Jeremy don't come to work today. Take you don't wanna get hurt. Little slip. All right. Well, my hero is a Syracuse fan. Check this out. He goes to lunch with Jim behind says, it got a feeling you're going to beat Duke tonight. You know what? I mean, you're gonna make it. So they make a little wager. He promises to give one hundred and fifty grand if they win they win. And he makes good on that promise. In fact, the upped it to one hundred seventy five grand Adam whitesman is the man this week. He's giving a hundred and seventy five granted the girls and boys clubs so everybody wins. If you're Syracuse fan, the boys and girls, and of course, the team. Not that. Right. Everybody out. There goes I went to Syracuse. Oh, it's might, sir. Yeah. All right. So my hero of this week is not a human. It is instead a cow named Betsy and you might not have noticed but seven months ago Betsy escape during a rodeo in Anchorage Alaska, and she's been on the run ever since she's been spotted within the city limits of the authorities. There have had no luck corralling. No luck whatsoever. I don't know how it's possible for cabbie on the loose in major metropolitan area corral. But that's what's happening. They're saying they're not afraid that wolves or bears are gonna get her because it's in the city limits, but Betsy you are hero. Keep going keep fighting. On the land. We'll see it actually go Betsy.

Hour 3: Mina Kimes

"Dude. Your nose is bleeding. Yeah. I think it might still be believing. What happened? I thought I had good seats at a game that was stuck in the four hundred. That was three days ago. They were super high up. I felt like I was somebody Everest look next time. Just go to vivid seats. Tickets are one hundred percent Bendik and you can even see where your seat is before you buy it can't believe I'm going to say this your genius. Well, you welcome. I kind of am we're on the earn ten minutes. Maybe we should get that Kleenex out of your nose. Here. Put it on the poll at lebatardshow please. Did you? No. That riana is wealthier than the onset. Yes. Or no. I mean a kinds you can download and subscribe, the meantime, show podcast, new episode every Wednesday also she's got a live show at the crocodile. If you're in Seattle, July twenty second, they go on sale at one o'clock today tickets to the crocodile dot com. If you want more information, give us more information they go and tell in an hour from now, one PM eastern time and these things will go fast folks. And what is the nature of the of the live show me, what are you doing out there? Well, it's a, a lot of vision of the podcast. So that'd be a lot of talk special celebrity guests tension. We from local squad. But if there are enough, lebatardshow fans, maybe I'll do my own Roy's Rome, like you guys did for very long time the witching hour, perhaps the segment that no one is asking for a no one ever wanted. Come on, so you're thinking about doing. Like a solo performance as the witch that what you're saying. The witch characters very limited. It's kind of terrible. This is this is not an incentive and Roy's realm is not worth a spin off. I don't know that a lot of people and asking for the wish. I know it's the worst character isn't the worst character in the history of the show. I know that saying a lot high BART's largely Stu gods. Michael might be. Before we get to the crocodile in Seattle, and your podcast. Do you take aside in Duke Johnson against Baker Mayfield? I you know, I think that, that is Mike actually thought put it really well, I don't mean they actually might could it really well on Twitter when he said he was a little bit surprised. 'cause, you know, teammates are usually pretty careful about that stuff. Especially when it comes to business Baker does have a tendency to because mine, and say, exactly what he thinks he didn't really come out against Duke, necessarily, but he's made it very clear. He's, he's very tribal in its growth. He's team. I it's like you're with us. You're against us. And I guess, you know, in his view, if dukes manning trait, it's no longer with them. Actually. I did. Yeah. Is there any way outside of injury that the Browns aren't good? I think they're gonna win the division. You know some people are saying, well, the good on paper team. And we seen those teams in the past like the eagles not that long ago, and they don't come together. Coaching there's a lot of big personalities. But part of the reason I think you're going to get it's not just because of all the talent they bro letting. No, not all the talents that they sorry my dog hooping right now. I'm taking a walk, not just the women. So you you just sounded like you're arguing with yourself on the radio and then decided that the Browns were no longer good. But it's just because Lenny was making a brand. My gosh. I kinda tower. You know, you got to take while you're talking with early doing that right now. Just gonna let it go. Yeah. I think. Really don't pick whereas Lenny pooping. I mean. I'm gonna take it. I'm gonna pick it up. But I'm gonna I'm not gonna pick it up while I'm talking about football. I'm gonna wait until after. Brown's good healthy. Yeah. I was gonna say because the coaches good I go, you know, not just bring kitchens back, but adding Todd monkey who I thought was one of the most creative offense coordinators in the league. See, it's a really good staff. What do you make of Todd mcshay being in the running for the debts front office? When do when are we in the writing, I feel like I feel like with one call and get us both jobs for the New York Jets to try God sent taxed on Saturday nights. God sent me a text on Saturday night. I'm going to bed your gaze, about becoming the voice of the jet. Yes. What do you think? I think it's, it's obviously a trend in. We're seeing also, by the way, these Jim firing. Right. Because the Texans came out and fired their jam which took a lot of people by surprise to me. It's about coaches amassing power in both of these cases. So the coaches seem to have run a believe these days. And if you don't want good side, Stu, you might have shot. Amino will Lenny be making an appearance at your live show in Seattle. In some capacity. Yes. But then he doesn't fly very well I don't know if you we've talked about that, but he really doesn't do well on play. He's small enough to fit on a plane, but he chewed his way out of a bag. Last time I brought him on a plane and quavo style. I'm a little bit nervous about trying it again. What? What wait a minute? Why was my running man reference too old but hurt? She just made a total recall referencing. Old. There was a. Remind more people seeing teetotal recalls. What are the raiders doing me? Not. Well. The draft. It was all about taking the classic layers and the proven guys without as much upside. And they went down. They signed kind here. Right. And obviously AB there, too. I actually think they're going to be pretty significantly better especially on offense to the season. You know, they've got a tough schedule, but they're the team, I wouldn't say the Browns, they're the team where it actually might fall apart. What can you tell me about Joe Douglas who was hired as the jets diem? Everybody wants a piece of the eagles. Right. They're seeing right now is one of the best run organization in the league and a lot of has to do with their owner and sort of the culture. He's silicate there. It's very progressive. They care about numbers. They care about doing things in a modern way. So a lot of teams want a piece of that by L accounts. He has a golden reputation. It's not a terribly difficult situation. He's walking into this time of year. So I think the great hire the once contract. Interesting are obvious sorry, the, the lens contract. When's Carson Wentz? I thought it was a great deal end. Sorry. Everything's about money. I thought it was a great deal. You know, it's funny people seem to think it was really risky, because the injury, if you get injured injured at some point, right? It's not like him being healthy for a year guarantees healthy for the rest of career. But doing this they get ahead of every other quarterback contract be back this year. Mahomes, soon to get a contract, you know, bigger than the GDP of Dubai or whatever. So right now, they're getting locking him down at a pretty cheap price, and it's not a lot of guaranteed money you hear the guaranteed dollars. But a lot of injury guarantees are not real. So to me, it made a ton of sense. Again, it goes back to the eagles, being really, really smart and how they do business, again, tickets for Meena kinds live show at the crocodile in Seattle, July twenty second go on sale today. Fifty two minutes you'd go to the crocodile dot com. If you want more information, you can download and subscribe to the meantime, show, podcast, new episodes, every Wednesday I thought that eagles offense of line two years ago was. Among the best I've ever seen. And I thought that the problems Philadelphia had or the regression. They had had everything to do with the regression of that offensive line. What happened there and how do they improve that? How do they get back to two years ago as opposed to last year? Eagles really in the trenches not to be crochet. But you're, you're right. It was actually office defended by the head credible death on both sides. And they had some injuries, right? They should be back to full health actually Peters is coming back. But they went ahead and drafted especial ready in Andre dealer team. Does that you know they're good? Right. When they're not drafting guy, they need. But a guy that they're going to need a year. You know that they're set at the position group. I actually think right now the eagles would be probably I don't know if they're my pick to come out of the NFC, but they're definitely one of the three best me. You know, why is Celeste screaming evidence in the middle of the night multiple times in an episode and does Mary Louise sleep in the room, what's going on there? I don't know. You'd think if you had just been complicit in the murder of someone sun, you wouldn't have them in your house knowing that you're screaming evidence. It doesn't it's really smart show. But it's like a dumb plot device remake did a multiple times. And, and she used the same sort of device, which is what about rape? Who are we murdering? I it's just and you have for those of you do not know Mike is talking about big allies, that Meryl Streep walked into the room twice as main character was having nightmares in which she spoke of some of the evil. They have done what we're talking about, right? I didn't. Thank you. It's obvious we're talking about the Monterey five and big little lies season to kick off last night.

Can you guys get me an expert on these matters some sort of expert sit next to these liveth our show with his two guys on ESPN radio stugatz his weekend, survey shins are going to be in about twelve to thirteen minutes? But here is in the world of amateurism. What you can do when you have a great deal. Of financial success. Hugh Culverhouse junior. Pledge to donate twenty six point five million dollars over four years to Alabama. He is the biggest donor the school hats. He also urged businesses and perspective students to boycott the university, and the state over Alabama new abortion law. What do you do do got if you are Alabama in that situation? Hoping for the mystery. Magic crazy gone. It's not popping up right now. I don't have any control over it. Why don't you throw it to Mike throw it to Billy throw it to ROY throw to Chris throw to Allison, what have a phone of friend? What do you wanna do? What would you guys do? And then I'll tell you if what you're thinking is right or wrong. Go ahead, Mike. I really want to hear your thoughts on this. I, I'm just hearing for the first time I'd really prefer the taste makers in this industry days. Tell me what they think. But I'm also hearing it for the first time as well. Meaning if you're all Bama, do you get in you to take that money if you disagree with what he's what do you do? If you're Alabama, you've got your biggest donor rise, urge perspective, students and businesses to boycott both the state, and the university over Alabama's new abortion law, which is a, you know, subject of polarizing controversy throughout the United States that Alabama has gone back to a different time in abortion law. I want to say that the right thing to do was Alabama should stop taking that man's money. But we all know that Alabama is not going to stop taking that man's money. I don't think the university is gonna stop doing it. I just don't. Because the football program is that important to the university, they returned all the money. Wow, wish I knew that in advance, they return all the money with interest and said, get on outta here. Really? That is pretty gangster, and you can do it when you're making plenty of money because they said we do not want. We do not want your twenty one point five million dollar gift. They return the funds. They said it was processed Friday morning, and that they will also return any accrued interest. And I wonder what happens with the next step on that. Oh, and they also took his name off of the law school like they said, not only keep your money here. We don't want your name either. Did I know his stance while taking the money or are they returning the money because there was a lot of blowback for them except well, you're not allowed to criticize them for returning, the money after predicting that they would never return the mole? That was my prediction. I was guessing not allowed to criticize them reacting to blow back when they've already done the thing that is hard to do. I'm not criticizing anyone yet. Perhaps, I will I am simply asking some questions before I criticized because now I am generally interested in. Story. I'm wondering if you have to be kind of. You can't. You can't give him a hard time for noggin involved in these segments. And then snap at him when he's wrong minute, wait a minute. I was I was right, technically, I said, I'd like to think that Alabama would not take the man's money but I predicted what they did to be wrong wonderful. Thank you. Did nothing wrong. I know damn you. Minute snap semi, it's unbelievable. I got to have a conversation with somebody about the things that are happening in the news, you happen to be in the room with me. You watch that tone. I don't understand how this comes back on me where snap at me. Listen, I took I gave you my opinion, Alabama. I would return the money but I'm guessing Alabama didn't return the money because the football program is so important. And then you verify that was wrong. But I didn't nap it. You just simply thought it was felony snap. I thought it was funny for you to say. Got this week and survey ships next donlevatar Louis Riddick every time I see him on television. Looks a little bit sleepy because he has is slowly sucking, all of the energy out of wearing a mass to God's he'd best, looking ball guy in sports. It's Don O riddick's looking. I'm not looking man disputing that. He's good looking, former athlete pardon athletes, included, Jason Taylor. Game over my favorite about Louis Riddick is when he's relaxed. Louis Riddick on buttons. The shirt everybody got a little gold chain underneath. That's what he's Lou Riddick live tar show with a Stu gods on ESPN radio to God's his weekend, observations coming in less than one minute. Kevin Durant is a game time decision today. According to Steve Kerr, I'm reporting based on no information whatsoever that Kevin Durant is playing tonight up Friday. You I mean come on. If he's a game time decision he's playing I mean it kind of has to play. I'm going to I would have backup that report, a guy clay was active and dressed and play game three. Yeah. But there's no tomorrow, my this is winter go home. I mean this is Kevin Durant has to play. He cannot sit there and watch his teammates lose the Toronto as I could be his final game of the Golden State Warriors, you had to come out and try to watching him for an entire series. I guess I just stand Van Gundy shrugged, his shoulders when I asked him last week and said, I expect Kevin Durant to be Kevin Durant, the moment he arrives. I don't know how fair, it is to expect Kevin Durant to bail them out. Like, what are the chances that he has his stamina you can't be playing in the minutes? He was playing before he got hurt. Like you seem what happened to boogie cousins trying to keep up with all of this. He had one good quarter one could game and he's been bad and all the other game. But I think what is saying is, yes, the minutes might be limited. It might be twenty twenty five minutes. But it will be the same Kevin Durant in those twenty minutes. I, I don't know. I'm not I just think it's very hard to recreate the pace of an NBA finals game when you haven't played in a month. Right. And I am. When you've never played in. The finals. And you're likely going to have to face. I Leonard Mon. So wait a minute in your personal record book. He did not play in the Oklahoma City finals either nothing counts. Okay. Nothing counts era. Good. You forgot about Oklahoma City. I really did time now for God's his weekend. He also forgot about his personal record book, evidently. Because nobody's making he was having meetings with publishers ten months ago, I was hearing about the bidding war, and then not getting closer time now for two to share his skin notes.

Let stash this away in the things we need to take a closer look at file really wanted to see Djokovic in the doll in the French Open, final so disappointing Nidal did his part, Novak did not Novak Djokovic more like Novak Joe day you go the choker with three wins. Kevin Durant has a chance to change everything. Brooks, KEPCO finish fiftieth at the Canadian Open twenty shots off the lead. If he Canadian Open was a major. He would've won wanted at this point pretty certain. I could convince. Adam gays to give me a job on his coaching staff, death, taxes and Rasiah Rhonda running his mouth story, but wise demeanor rubbing off, on raptors now, none of them, speak. Can't wait to watch comply, not smile after winning NBA JP jet at finals, MVP when your parents name, you max Muncie. You know what you meant to do. Dan out. Our hitter. You're meant to mash when Raphael, the Dow shows up to the red clay of Roland Garros you know what it means. It means everyone else is playing her second place, allegedly. He's won two championships two finals MVP's three straight finals, and yet, somehow Kevin Durant has harmed his legacy more than he's helped it not as in Bumgarner. Here's an idea. Don't let Muncie hit your pitch to an ocean mad bomb. Now you're just a bum who's mad. If hit a baseball out of a stadium and into a bay wouldn't you take a second or two to enjoy, what, hey Rafa?

The gentlemen who runs the lacrosse program, whom I team bludgeon last season standing on the sideline of one of our games. A game in which he shouldn't have a rooting interest in actively rooting against my girls serve you put the s in class, and the Stu gods is dragging. You got no reason to be there as certainly no reason to be rooting against my girls, you know, it's he was celebrating his team at one, I'm guessing the reasons probably you and your general behavior on the side. Probably may pepperoni topic j with ideas about how to make the jets better collision course a tip of the cat to TLC read two thousand twenty two her giving my team its first loss in over a year after being down seven to well done Dan, you know, my motto, you win with glass. You'll lose with class the little across world, a warning I'm doing an explosive investigative journalism piece that will expose. The politics and Apocrypha, see behind the scam. You liked to call youth lacrosse, it will send shockwaves throughout the sports. You've been warned. I suggest you get your bleeping order. By the way, if it investigative journalism piece is an explosive on not rating. It who am I kidding? I'm not reading it anyway, me, not writing and investigative piece on youth lacrosse, collision course and if I did me not reading my own investigative journalism peas on youth lacrosse, collision course is someone going to take a look at what the hell is going on at Santa Anita. Speaking of health or Dan, those are the weekend observations. I I'm still not sure what happened with the lacrosse investigative pieces it because you lost your going to investigate corruption in youth lacrosse, they're just they're you know, they're picking these national teams and these all. American teams and you have people who are deciding who are running the program, they're picking their own girls, and not picking the right girl the best girls and I've just decided, I'm tired of it the politics policy, and I'm going to expose it, man. I am going to blow this thing wide open. How about that? Break out the red panties. We arrange baby need some help. It doesn't seem like something you would do favoring your own kid. Listen best players, put gamma. Why is it? Why skeptical Billy here, you so full of it, and for days, you've been hearing, there's this ongoing feud, I dunno if you're wear behind the scenes between Allison's niece, who was a lacrosse goalie and his daughter. Now thens niece, won the state championship, and it's through God's been talking ill of her saying how his daughters, so much better lacrosse, and Allison's nieces. And then she went out and she won the state championship. Yells about investigation. His daughter's team is losing. He's saying it's because the other teams are cheating cheating. I tip my cap to the team that beat us a tip of the Cup. It's the they played very, very well, and they're not one of the doing it the right way. But the next thing you did was say that you are going to have an explosive investigation. Just I'm Dan. I'm telling you, that there is such I'm telling a lot of kids are fall through the cracks because certain colleges are only looking at certain programs and they're all tied together, and it's a minor league system, filtering kids into certain colleges and a lot of kids. Fortunately, from Florida are gonna fall through the cracks who are certainly good enough to play any one of these universities and better than many of the players that are going to some of these top colleges that that's so I'm gonna blow the doors on this woman. I really am. It just kind of seems that you're taking the ball and going home because you lost donlevatar got spent the entire break giggling attacks. What is that tech street, this has been the worst our in the last six years? Of the show, and it's not even close to God's, and it's not even over these live at our show with this Stu guys on ESPN radio at lebatardshow, if you want to vote on any of the polls that God's about update from Edmonton Alberta. This comes in where the, the Canadian national anthem tonight will be sung by the fans in the craziest Candida you've ever seen for basketball. Jeff Hendrick rights love how you guys still think a guy who couldn't finish a three on three practice. Three days ago will come in after a month off playing in fifty percent. And help the warriors run the table. I love your doctor diagnosis of fifty percent. Jeff Hendrick after studying all that ails, Kevin Durant calf. How do you feel about the fans singing that national anthem together? That's like that's response. Right thing for Canada. I love the candidates falling in love with basketball. I love the Leonard is immediately going to leave the team after the game never to return. I love that tonight when Toronto wins. Kevin durant. Big smile on his face. It's going to come out and grab the finals MVP trophy in the middle of a roaring Canada. That's what he's just holding up the most valuable player of the fine like gave K D two offered you can come back and play and win the title for the warriors or not play at all when finals MVP which thinking. I think he would choose winning. But losing and winning and playing second. Can win. He's gonna win finals MVP. It's going to be indisputable doesn't even matter when he puts up the games, just as mere presence because he could come back and maybe twenty five minutes in numbers teams, don't come back from this. This is, you know, Avs dead. They're the only when it was shocking, and then took Draymond green being ojected, a lot of different things had to happen in order to make that happen. How about that piece that they added at the deadline Marcus saw every time you wanna pooh-poohed, this NBA trade deadline up championships are made was the piece that they added in the off season with the trait.

Dr. Laurie Santos | The Most Popular Course in the History of Yale

"Andrew did you attend Yale. I did not. I also did not attend Yale University. I couldn't get in. I know I couldn't get it high to take my. Act three times smile to get into college well on today's show. We're interviewing a Yale professor. WHO has made the most popular course in the history of the whole history? Yield's been around for three hundred years. That's a lot and this woman has created the most popular course in the history of Yale it has music kinda sounds like Yale. Come on why would they cut the music of it that I had the whole gale vibe going kind of regal all right now. Then he further ado back to our interview with today's guest Dr Lori Santos House who joins us to share about psychology and the good life shows don't need celebrity narrator to introduce this show the show dots to eight kids co created by two different women thirteen multi million dollar businesses ladies and gentlemen welcome to track time. Shaw Uh ah Yes yes yes and yes. I am so excited about. Today's show. See I mean this sincerely. There's a lot of shows shows where I get excited. I get fired up and you know that I do know that I would say probably once a month I will say something like this is going to be my favorite it show this year once a month. That statement. Yeah it's kind of like your cycle the right now which is once a month your band this and especially when you get the confluence of what's going to happen here but right now this university listen to this Dr Lori Santos okay. She's a smart person. She's a doctor okay. She's a Yale professor. Now you who knows yeah took my. Act three times. So I couldn't get into Yale or Harvard so what I do is I buy the case. Studies put out by the Harvard Business Review and I read them. I buy them for seven bucks and I read them like like seven times so I can figure out what the first chapters about a man and I can't go to yell courses because they have standards and ethics. You know things like that. Well this. Listen this lady right here. This woman this incredible person. She is going to tell us about the most popular. Course in the history of Yale Dr Lori Santos welcome onto the show. How are you? I'm great thanks for having me on the show. I don't want to paint you into a corner by asking a specific question about this but roughly how long jail around just to give the listener some context because Yale's sales doing well and you've been leading the most popular course at Yale. How long has been around? I think it's three hundred seventeen years just this this year's so could you share with us. Maybe some notable people that graduated from Yale that maybe our listeners would know because again not everybody listening to this show knows a whole lot about Yale Tale. Yeah well George Bush John Carey in half of presidents Many of the Supreme Court justices. You know it's it's been around for a while it's it's done pretty well in the number one course in the history of Yale psychology and the good life. Why do you think your class has taken taking off like it? Has I think students on campus are not as happy as I remember being when I was in college. We're dealing with this so called mental health crisis where students are just stressed anxious and depressed and much more so than they have been in a long time and things like rates of depression have doubled just in the last ten years and so aches. do or just looking for a way to feel less stress than they like this idea of having a scientific approach to what would make them happy. I think that's what drew them to the course. Now you'd be happy as a professor. I might get a passing grade from you because I did a bunch of research to get prepared for the show. Here I'm going to read you some fun facts that I have found if you don't like my facts. Or you want to refute them. And maybe you said these aren't flaxseeds or opinion but I found according to psychology today. The average American is being interrupted on their smartphone. Eighty eighty five times a day. Does that sound accurate to you. Do you think that sounds. That sounds pretty high but I bet that's accurate Nielsen. Reports the average American. I'M GONNA put links to all this. So Andrew it's mix Sri put this on the show notes that the average American spends eleven hours per day interacting with their media or their social media or their text. Messages in much of that is not a positive thing. Does that sound real. That sounds that sounds correct. We're just like interacting with technology not other humid's much more than we ever have been so in a world where people erupted eighty five times a day where people are spending eleven hours a day on their media where people are last year the last two years for the first time in American history history the life the life expectancy of humans has gone down due to suicide that one I did not know so in a world where people poor getting more depressed the more time. It's been on their phone the more time he's been on the phone the more depressed. You are in a world where this is happening. What kind of things do you teach in your class? And how do you help helper students become happier yet. Will the main thing we teach in the class is just this idea that our minds lie to us about the kinds of things that make us happy another. There's we had these intuitions about you know. If we're not a good mood here things I could do to feel better. But by and large those intuitions tend to be Kinda off. You know we think when we're not having a great day Al Plop down in you know watch. TV or El Al.. Scroll through instagram. Feed and so on but it turns out that those intuitions are leading US astray. They're causing us to do behaviors that are systematically gonNA lead us away from happiness. And we're doing that in some ways in an opportunity cost of the kinds of things that could make us happy. You're taking time to be a little bit more social taking time to count your blessings. Even healthy practices like exercise and sleep are kind of going away in the modern age part because we don't realize how important they are for our mental onto health. Nash G in a song called I hate you. I love you which I was listening to in preparation for today's show and he he says is as he says. I'm always missing people that I shouldn't be missing referring to this thing where people go on social media and they look at people they no longer talk to and they kind of compare lives and that kind. The thing is that a bad thing we shouldn't be doing would not be going on social media when we're depressed and comparing our life to somebody else. Yeah well Hinson you know especially when you're Kinda not integrate state going on social media isn't gonNA necessarily bump up your happiness either. There's there's suggestions that depression and things like that are correlated with the amount of time we spend on social so media and there's been a few studies that kind of force people to go on social media for different amounts of times and you find that they tend to feel more depressed afterwards and I think it's especially bad for people who are prone to kind of social comparison. If you're in the kind of person that you know if you see somebody's vacation voters they're gonNa make you feel bad about yourself and you're especially susceptible to Kinda the negative effects of the social media now Dr Lori yesterday as a as a case study for you here I decided I was GonNa turn my phone off yesterday and track. How many messages that I would miss? How many messages? I would miss between Sunday morning at four in the morning when I woke up through Sunday night at ten just like give you stats so here they are. I missed thirty four facebook book updates forty emails eleven calls twenty-seven text messages. Now the one thing about the forty emails that's kind of misleading because one particular woman emailed me Sixteen Times according to Jonathan. So actually it'd be fifty six or fifty five but I'm just kind of as one because it was the same threat over and over and over so if I'm out there going I'm in that doom loop where I'm getting e mails texts facebook interruptions and I'm just constantly frustrated. I'm somehow depressed. I'm being less happy than I was is when you went to college. Why was to peek into your class? Pretend that we are attending your course. What kind of tips would you give us to become happier? Humans would would be to try to do all that social interaction that you have or protects over phones in real life One of the clearest pieces of evidence we have about what makes people happy he comes from social connection every available survey at Happy People suggest that they're more social they hang out with more people in real life and that's both friends and family members but also just kind kind of random strangers just sort of making connections with the people around. You seems to matter so that would be kind of one of the biggest one of the biggest things The second would be to find ways to be more mindful. You're another problem with technology. Is that stealing attention all the time. You could be kind of savoring a good moment. You know enjoying a Nice Cup of coffee or a dessert or something and then being you know your phone own can drag you away. Drags attention away and so another tip. We talked about in the class. A lot is to take more time to be mindful. Do exactly what you did. No shut those alerts off so you can pay attention to the things in real life that are enjoyable and that you're really kind of able to save. You can pay attention. This is crazy. INC Magazine had a staff that showed up. And I'm putting this on the show. I'm not a magazine. Says that when you get an interruption via text on your phone it takes you twenty three minutes to regain your thought and the most thing just like with this idea of our minds lying to us as we don't notice it right like this pin comes in you look at it and you think you're focusing back on your test with us just not the way humanitarian works at takes us a while to get back mindfully attending to what we were paying attention to before and again if you know your numbers on a Sunday afternoon which is probably not like maximum time for you to be getting right to tax and emails right like a lot like. That's so many things that are stealing our attention away from life in the moment. which is the thing that makes us happier note? Charles Co Law Law is in the studio right now. He's Charles. How tall are you a six foot? Four how much do you weigh about two fifty five. What's your body? Fat Percentage about seven. He's a massive massive man. Dr Lori we worry about very strong guy and his wife's with them on the show. They built the business together Cola fitness a multi-million dollar a gym and Charles. You had a hot taker question for Laurie before. Doctors begins the interrogation Dr Lori. Santos we'll Dr Lori. Clay has been our business coach for a couple of years and that was one the first thing he did was basically make me shut my phone off all day long and I tell you it was one of the best things I was like. Are you kidding me. There's no way I can run businesses in multiple states and run all of this and it was like super overwhelming. He's like no but that's just do what I tell you and I shut that thing off. Shut it down. Shut sit down shut. Shut it down to funky all day long within like three days I was like I am not chewing my nails. I'm not I'm the happier. I am having better relationships with my wife and my kids so as it was honestly I wasn't. He helped me with other systems and stuff but it was running more efficient better and I wasn't wasn't like held hostage emotionally with business. What advice would you have for somebody? Who's in your class? Who realizes that they need to detach from things that don't matter like Charles did? Did what advice do you give your students. If they recognized there in the doom loop of of unhappiness. What would be maybe step one to making somebody more happy? Why thank you know? Step one on technology thing is. Try some baby steps disconnecting you. One of the quick solutions I give students there on Social Media Instagram snapchat and things all the time I say. Just take the APPS off your phone. Your you could still log on with your laptop or something like that but it takes you a couple steps. You're just not doing automatically. And it turns turns out that even that can pull you away from the sorts of social media. That's making you less mindful. You know it's like just like start with baby steps and then try to be mindful and notice. I love this example of your first. You're thinking like this is going to be awful but then a few days in your noticing like not biting my nails like I'm much more mindful and present with my family like if we can start noticing the differences that are behaviors may crust. That can make a big difference in terms of whether or not we're GONNA stick with them in the future now Z.. You were fifty four year old beautiful man just a beautiful man just turned earn. Fifty five fifty four really just did well every year. Apparently I get a year older frank. So the thing is you're you're a fifty five year old guy. Oh you own multiple businesses Dr Laura. He's invested in a bank and he has an auto auction. Any has the largest optometry clinic and Oklahoma. You don't want to give me context so you have a lot going on and Z.. You helped teach me about. Hey you just turn your phone off you. Just keep the old phone in the old car put in the old keep the phone and I remember you told me one time. He said something like it. We were doing a man cave thing it was just it was a little thing you said but it's just a little thing and tell me you're like I give you permission or whatever you need to hear to just keep your phone in your car or whatever that is just like like totally fixed. My marriage like huge. I give you permission. I should charge you for that. I know you said just may have sent you bill aid. Thousands of customers people are always upset. You always have one upset customer. Said I give you permission or whatever you need to hear to put the phone in your car. And I'm like sure I'm right in that town. So what questions would you have for Dr Lori. Because you're living the life that she is teaching students to live. You're you have self actualized. You live the good life you travel. You have thousands and thousands of took a class that she didn't even know millions of customers I was I was due to the bag that you kept going. His guy is he and my clue is is then climbing climbing all the desk. You know. Sometimes I see these young people you talk to them about their phones specifically because because phones lead to the APPs which leads so many interruptions. Let's Louise and there's a part of me that feels like now you've been around this. You teach this. This is a every day thing for you that there's an addictive component to it and whenever you get to a addictions dealing with those and trying to help people get over addiction. Whatever addicted to little addiction? I'm sorry I couldn't hear you. I was on Youtube Youtube Ing. Oh there you go. That's from take. So how do you do. Do you feel that that can be a thing. And so how do you have kids deal with that. Yeah well addiction. The scientists of these very very specific definitions of addiction and I think in some cases some people fall prey to it. Not everyone does would definitely everybody with their phones has something else that can be really problematic. which is a bad habit? You have. It's like you don't have to think about them. They just Kinda crop up you know. It's like brushing your teeth like brush your teeth every day. You don't have to dig about make a decision. Should I brush rush might eat. They're not just happens and I think even more so than addiction. What happens is our phones are good at kind of hacking our habit? Loop right they become habits in our alive so that you know when you wake up in the morning of the habit of checking your phone or you know as soon as you finish interview may have the habit of checking your email and so on and these habits just lead our behaviors astray. It means. We're not paying attention half the time as like dragging our behavior in one direction. I'm sorry I'm sorry you were telling me something and I couldn't hear it because I was going on facebook doc and youtube snapchat an email and skype and linked in and all the same time I do you see this in your class Lori. Did you see this in your class. When you're teaching this to your people in your class do they do this kind of crap to you? Sometimes ever where they actually in your class as you're teaching about disconnecting people in your class do that kind of crap. I'm so so sorry. The rudely interrupted you. I just wanted to demonstrate my class to write you know. Sometimes when I'm giving these lectures I'll be talking about this stuff. Often have my phone now. It's awesome my clock in this big concert hall teach and it'll be like paying added on vibrate but I can still see a vibrate in even teaching the class. It's hard for me not to do it. And that makes sense right. It's just part of our human nature to to turn these things into habits to allow them to feel really rewarding to us. So it's hard to let go Paul Graham. Am who is one of the He's the guy behind dropbox an AIRBNB and read it but before that you know he beat the bill. He built a via web which he sold to Yahoo essentially the first online shopping cart. See this guy. Sold it to Yahoo for forty nine point six million dollars and I'm putting this on the show notes but he was explaining to to a group of tech people at a conference and then he tweeted it out to clarify what he meant is he said. I've never carried an iphone. And they asked. What do you mean you're the guy who's inventing dropbox AIRBNB? Read it and the first online shopping cart. I mean you and He's sent out a link to an article which all of our listeners can find right now which is in the Guardian Dot Com and it says our minds can be hijacked the tech insiders who fear a smartphone to stop and it pointed out the head key people at Google twitter and facebook. The people who made the technology eighty intentionally made addictive. Which is why they don't use smartphones? So the heads of the and they don't let their kids smartphones Eva. What their kids use the APPS that they have created created yes and we interviewed the gentleman who wrote the book? I'm such a horrible person. It's a yellow covered book. And it's called not it up with your phone. I probably should read that one. It is a great one. It's the one. Oh man it's it'll come in a minute but we near I'll near I always name near. I like her. I like her title better I go. Hey phone I got some News for you is what it's called Hook. That's the news for your romantic. Yeah it was called hooked and break hooked explains in the book. These people have actually coded out websites to make it addictive. So you gotTa Casino and bringing anything that someone taught about that dog. It's a thing it's the thing so Dr Lori. I want to attend your class. But can anyone get in your class. Ask You have to pay to go to your class. People who are out there listening. Can they can they buy your book. How can people learn more about these things your teachers? I want to go to your class. While we'll lose two one as you actually can take the class online for free We've put it on line on for Sarah Dot Org. It's called the science of wellbeing so you can plop on there and take it full you'll class for the free website again. It's a core Sarah Dot Org Horn era. Era Core Sarah. It's called the science of wellbeing but more relevant relevant since all of your folks are listening on the radio is that we've also turned the class into a podcast because we're finding that you know people learn stuff with audio who rate and so we we just started a new podcast called the happiness lab which teaches everything that we cover in the class but in podcast form only have never been to Yale again because they have standards and class these sorts of things. But could you share with us your career leading up to Yale like how did you get to be a professor at Yale did you. Did you did zero. Not like a course. Did you lose a bad you lose and you win a bed did you. Hi Fi the right person. How did you go through your path before being a y'all professor and how you became a Yale professor yes so I I actually grew up in a very working class neighborhood? went to a big public. High School wasn't really sure what I wanted to do but was smart. I was the nerdy kid who got good grades rates. You know the big high school in so I applied to bunch of schools wound up getting the most financial aid from Harvard. As one does Enzyme ended up going to Harvard. Robert and I was completely clueless when I went there. I was not kind of. I didn't grow up in a town where people went to Ivy League schools. I kinda took like sort of figuring it all out But that was where I ended ended up starting to do some research at that schools like Harvard. Like you can work in people's labs and you can learn about what research psychology is like and I started pretty early. I needed a job. Doug candidate to help pay for books and stuff inside started pretty early on working in a lab and that was kind of where I learn like. Oh this is so cool like you know feels like psychology you know you think of it as like Royd throw you on the couch but actually researchers are studying these big questions about you know. How do we make decisions? How did these F. steeler attention like you you know? How do we understand what it means for humans to be special and what makes us unique and so started early on doing some research kinda liked it in next step that made sense twist Kinda go on and do some graduate work in that and kind of did that and the rest is history now? New Haven is the home of Yale. I believe newhaven can. Can you describe what it's like to be on the campus is it does it does it. Does it feel like I mean do does it feel kind of regal and Sorta like we we are we are important we or future presidents events. Here I mean. Does it feel like that or does it feel like an episode of Billy Madison. You're watching Billy Madison. Does it feel like you're dead poet's society what does it feel like. Honestly it feels like hogwarts. That's what the students compare it to. You know. Looks like we're stepping out of Harry Potter. You know these old kind of buildings You know these big sorts of spaces. There's no magic agic students on campus with these kind of oldish looking kind of brick buildings kind of the way people think of it here as a professor. What does it feel like to know that you have the most popular class in the history of a school? That is three hundred. Eighty one years old seventeen treat and seventeen years old. Seventy seventy three seventy seven. Seventy what is it like to have the most popular class in the history of the school. It's been around for four thousand and seven years it's humbling. It's it's really humbling. In kind of shocking and a little bit surreal but I mean I think it speaks to the content of class that the students really want some answers about what they can do better. I think it's not me. It's the content of the class that kind of drew them in and I think they really want to be happier. They're looking for a scientific approach to do that. I mean if some semester astros class over the cage fight to find out who comes in I mean what do they. What are the kids? Do they ll Indian leg wrestle in the hallway. What what's the what's the move? I mean you only fit so many in title mean well with that was kind of what happened. was that You know the university realize they were such demand in in. They said we don't want to cap this class. We want to let everyone in that can that that wants to take it in so we first started teaching the class in a big chapel on campus. Because that's the only spot where we fit and then we kind of got way past the size is the chapel and we ended up teaching the class in the concert hall. Everyone joke that if we got any bigger we'd end up teaching in the football stadium but luckily didn't get that big will. Maybe you will after this podcast. I mean let's try to time. It really kind of sheets your numbers out real quick. I WanNa ask you this. What's going on with your football team? Do People actually go to the game. Go to the Harvard. Harvard Yale. Game is a big one. How many people go to the average Yale football game? I just WanNa know seven we. There's a lot of news diehard fan. Who Do the tailgate? I think they're much many more people at the tailgate approximate year. At smartest we've ever interviewed so you have the time. What's an approximate number of people? Do you think are at that stadium. Maybe like a thousand of the die hard fans will show up now on a good game so you you by the way have. What's the biggest? What's the largest number of people you've spoken in front of about this this happiness of course well upwards of thousand or two thousand and people in a single audience but the amazing thing is we put the class online we now have four hundred thousand learners taking the class so online you in our town of people are learning? Tonka I was I was so cool. See I was googling her and I found out. You know you've been featured in the New York Times. A lot of big publications do do you think your hair has anything to do with it. I mean the great hair care thank you. What's funny is when you put yourself out there especially as a woman you get lots of negative comments in one in addition to my voice sucks in my voice is really terrible? Often get just like emails from people be like your hair socks and that's not that's not gender specific thickets. Love this now. I've got a really hard hitting serious question for you so when Harvard Plays Yale. Who are you cheering for doctor? First off do you even know that the game is going on. That's the question at the school. David Jones Harvard. She even mentioned fair. Question Okay okay. Are you wearing blue or you were in Burgundy these days I'm wearing blue and it's mostly because I'm ahead of college now so I'm like a desert so they hey me who side you butters bread. Nice now Charles Coghlan. Do you have any questions or amber. Amber you have a question for Miss Lori because again and you are living the life that she's describing here by intention. You guys very intentional as a couple and you're a make your life better every year. Do you have any questions on behalf of the listeners. Because you've gone through this path Amer. I mean. You've actually done this. We've gone through the process of optimizing your schedule. Do you have any questions for Dr Lori. Santos Santos Oh. Gosh I we could be on here all day. I would have a lot of questions for her between Raising three teenagers through smartphones breath. Lorries way smarter than me. I worry what advice would you have for. I see this this is okay. This is an example. I just saw this this year and I will pull it up real quick. Let me pull the articles of the. I'm not gonNA mention who it is. Now never do that but this is a very serious one. Let me see this. This would be one of my clients his daughter and this all came out in the news very very bad thing but but She had a friend culverhouse and she was getting ready for school and her friend took a naked photos of her when she she didn't know her friend her getting ready and she didn't know okay. Okay and so her friend. Posted these on on Google and Shane this friend. The friend text it and and said Hey ten people at the school can find out before school starts or something like that and it went out to a ton of people. Oh my and this person came to school. We'll to discover that every single person had seen her naked. That's just horrible and so horrible situation and I thought man that's unusual Joel. He was sharing this story with somebody and then at the conference a couple back another guy came up to me instead of happened to his kid. To what advice would you have for someone who's living. Just an absolute salute digital dystopia. Do some people ripping on them online. You mentioned people not like in your hair. You know what I mean. How do you process what advice would you have? Yeah it's really awful and I think you know parents can set the tone with you know how they talk about late using media and stuff like that. I mean I think one thing is just like I think you know these kinds of tools can be used badly adly. If I was a parent I would hold off as long as possible for giving kids these songs and so on and then really talk to them about the kinds of things they can be used for Another thing you can can do is to try to reach out across the line and not do it over digital but do it in real life you know what I mean. I think one of the consequences of we see of such like polarization on twitter on social media and things like people don't realize they're real people behind it anyo people in memory like you have stupid hair. Sometimes I'll write them back. You're like oh I'm so sorry like like you know thank you. And then they're like. Oh I'm sorry I didn't think anybody would ever read that email you know it's like I didn't really think there was the person behind these kind of mean tweets or these means facebook posts. And so I think you know the more we can do to like connect with other people in real life we can start to overcome zona the anonymity and the kinds of bad stuff that we get from doing everything online. You know okay. We've got a rule in our house with you know we've got right now. There are a little older twenty to nineteen and thirteen but a rule in our houses. The kids aren't allowed to post on social media anything about our family without the approval of that other person so we don't deal with that issue like an older brother teasing using a younger sister making fun of each other Z.. Has a rule and the rule is you just. Don't talk about people that aren't present the stories stories. You could see this. I mean I think a lot of people digitally talk about people that aren't present. Think that's a move when people go on social media but it's a movie or a move and it's just a there's there's this whole the smartphone words taking people the the way that you can have these conversations and not have conversations. You can make comments that you can read the truth breath about working. It just wears one out you know and you know that there's nothing really healthy about it and you see that right. Dr Santos she said I may be comes in. Your class is because they know that mental illness spiking is on. Its Way we know that people are unhappier now than they've ever been. We know these things and yet at all draws back to the to the old way of doing things doesn't it it always goes back to having relationships and spending time with people you like and building you know good deep deep solid relationships i. I'm sure you probably integrate this in your class but the Harvard study. That's followed all those grown men now for all these. What eighty some odd years one hundred? Here's something you. Are you familiar with the study. I'm talking about yeah totally. It started in the nineteen thirties and forties. And then they've been tracking people since then you know. So they're cohort that started when they were we're in college are now in their eighties and nineties. And what's cool about the study. Is they look at all these different things. But these people's lives near how much money they made and so on and they have. The study was super interesting because it had a whole gamut of people like John F.. Kennedy was one of original subjects in this race. So it's like they had like the president's two people who were low income and all the stuff and what they find is the you know what makes people happy is social connection. It's like their networks and their connections with other people but it's not being an instagram friend. Maybe make it 'cause kinds of connections right it's like people's actual social networks of the people they can call upon if they're having a bad day needs some support. The more mazing thing is it's not just doesn't just affect people's happiness levels it affects people's health so whether you get diabetes whether you get keyser whether you have immune dysfunction lake that is related to how much social connection you have sex. That people who are more connected are healthier they live longer which is crazy And we're you know. I know in some ways giving that up on our own accord like we're the ones who choose to scroll our instagram feed rather than calling your friend for a drink or something and so like in some ways. We're giving this up willingly which is really disturbing it is. It's almost like you're back in the. I'm not sure exactly. What decade and cigarette? Smoking is just exploding. And you're looking look at everybody going. This isn't good. This is not good to studies. Show that this is not heading in the right direction. Put Down that thing. Thank called a cigarette and yet people just you know now that it took a Lotta a lotta damage a lotta lawsuits. I mean a lot of stuff that's gone on onto where you know it's just smoking is bad epidemic. Prasada it. Though you know sometimes at coffee hold on. I don't know Stola Mike my Stove. I feel like we're the early days the TACO companies you. It's kind of like this is this is not going in the right direction.

Who would be? The possibility of morning. Well, I think it's down to three teams. I don't think there's any doubt you're looking at either Tennessee Kentucky earlier issue. It's. Like the first tournament. Yeah. I yeah. I think LSU's had a really good spot right now because I got the win at Rupp tomorrow met again, I I realized there there is something to be said for winning the SEC, but but for Tennessee right now, they won the SEC last year. It's about getting far in the tournament. I really think Tennessee standards are now let's can we get to the final four. Finally. Thank you for the call. Do. Appreciate it David in Charleston on this Friday afternoon. Hello, david. Hey, hey, there how we are doing great. Thank you. You know, everybody asks you that we already knew I've new to say, you know, hey, do you ever walked up to somebody? David. How're you doing horrible? Nobody wants to hear that. We wouldn't watch him. Yeah. But ours order to ask you about two or three questions may one more comment. A woman's she'd been married seventy one years. Yeah. That's my city. One. Pardon? I know some people that have been married a lot less than feel like they've been married. Seventy one years. Well, of course that was. Of course, not ask you about Bobby Manley itself girl out. Yeah. Sure. Jake's father, right? Yes. Shakes father. You think that less Champa keep him after Bill Elise? Jake. They that sounds like a trick question. Nobody helped me with this. I'm trying to remember wasn't. He wasn't he coaching in Auburn. Yeah. Coach to small college because burns high school. I went to PC Uber. And then you went tell them. Yeah. Listen, I I've heard some criticism before I'm not gonna act like I don't know what you're talking about. But I I don't know. But it's impossible for me to know. What will must champ will be thinking? And now, I I'm maybe a little cynical to think that the idea of coach being at the same school as son is more than a coincidence. But but but I I wish I had a better answer for you there. David. Thank you very much for the call the great to hear from you. We have a lot more to do today. And we will keep. Taking more of your phone calls at eight five five two four two seven two eight five. Let's check out. Pete in Chattanooga. Hey, pete. Welcome to the show. Did I call how you doing? I talked to you before Christmas before the gate is went on that bowl game in Atlanta. That was quite a game. It was I I was down there with my wife. She's a UT grad. But she loves the gate is too. And yeah, I mean as Dan Mullen finished off that recruiting class with a couple of steals went from Georgia one from Alabama. And he thinks the having the two thousand twenty class he didn't in the right direction. So yeah, things look the awhile. No doubt. Really, really, really. Well. I'm was just interested in you'll take less people. I've talked to that are within that that had Georgia fans. And obviously people that come on the show have pretty confident about Georgia Bain in the representing the ace again this year, but people that expecting to. Quite concerned with Kivy Smuts playcalling and his time, you know, changes in play like the Texas game which absolutely unfolded to a nightmare for him. And obviously the the play coz against Alabama the strike seal. See? Oh, sorry tante. I was wondering what you'll take his on his touching and how he can change the game within the game. You know, when you've got someone like, Dan Mullen, who's, you know, one of the better play cool is in the country. Had you say last week. Yeah. Having I think the most dangerous play callers the country and Kirby smart is a defensive coach. He I'm not about to find fault. I mean, he's lost. Nick Sabin twice. Mitigating circumstances. Both times involving the quarterback. And to me, though, he is one and number of very big games that game at Notre Dame two years ago. So many others this year. But criticism is fine. I didn't think he handled the LSU situation. Very well. But one thing he did that impress me this year more than anything else is he was stood a torrent of criticism. Mm-hmm. For sticking by Jake from and not going to Justin fields. And a lot of us thought take come on. This is getting ridiculous after the Baton Rouge disaster. But, but he, but he stayed firm. And he got back to the SEC championship game. Had a great chance of winning and. I it went it went away it got away from him. But, but I still think he's on the same level as Nick Saban as a recruiter, but in three years of being a head coach he's not quite to that level yet. And that's that's what you have to do. I mean to to win the SEC you you have to beat the best coach of all time. That's not easy quick break. More to come. We will talk basketball a little bit later on. We'll go to Rupp we'll find out more about the free agency permeating the world of college football coming up. Shortly listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. And we welcome. You back. Glad you're here. And more phone calls coming up shortly at eight five five two four to seven to eight five boas in Louisiana both. Thanks a lot to welcome. Good afternoon. Hello. Hey, go right ahead. You're on the air. Illu bo- you're on the air. Thanks, paul. How you doing? We're doing great. Thank you. They think Trevor. Forever co square on 'cause they more TV now. He was great. Yeah. It's a good game upset arena. Wasn't. It was amazing. Yeah. Tell you. What type is back? No doubt they're gonna while in all man sports. I think I think it'd be great football next year. I'm not going to be an Alabama and they're gonna win at all. But we're be pretty good. Number one in baseball too. Yep. Just two plays away last year going eleven to one. You know, you're right. You are right about them. What would have happened in Georgia? Do we damn in? And he got three teams love more. What what would happen? Joy, I think LSU would have been in pretty good shape. That'd be interesting really would have been. Eighteen. They got. They would definitely got with eight. Yeah. Yeah. Give a shout out to you on joy your show and go tires and we'll ever coach coach football to he's job there. I think he has done a great job. Hey, thank you very much. Do appreciate the call from Baton Rouge from from from. Bo Stevenson, Tuscaloosa, Steve go, right ahead. Hey, pow first-time caller. Thank you very much. I appreciate you answer me. I've been years, you know. And I was just gonna ask you. What are you? Thank goodness. He's gonna do against Kentucky. I today lost the other night. I heard both from Louisiana talk about it. You think Tennessee's got a good chance to be Kentucky them really do. I I really am. We're going to we're we will talk to Seth assessed Greenberg and females. I really want to get his view of that game. I I I don't think it made a lot of difference for Kentucky. I mean, I mean to say that they have a degree of urgency because they lost a game. I mean, they were hosting the number one team in the country. I don't think he can get much bigger than that. Do you know? But I I one other question. What do you think the women's softball teams going to do this? You see where they have played today and beat south Al or beaten, south Alabama. How do you think the women's softball teams go there this year? I hope they do. Well, that's a team that what how long ago was it six. Seven years ago when the national championship. Yes. Yes. About five or six years, or so they were they were I watched a lot of that one of the series was with Oklahoma. They they were they were really good. Hey, thank you for the call. Really do. Preciado bud is up next. Hey, bud. Go right ahead. Hey, first time caller from a to appreciate you taking my call and everything a little bit retro with you. Sure. Well, you doing media in the eighties covering when Alabama right cokes. Perkins was an Alabama. I most certainly was. Because I was actually a student Alabama was a broadcast radio maker. And we did a little sports show on the ninety one thing used to go to coach persons press conferences in staff, and I just wondered if you were there in mcadam. A question is have you heard about anything about coast Perkins? Like, I used to help flies or a Bates on EMI in order seeing from a real I coached Perkins. It has been probably four or five years ago. I was playing in a in Randy Owens golf tournament up in where was yeah. It was. I think it was in muscle shoals. Let's show, and he he was there and we had a good conversation. I don't know if I've seen him since I know I've seen him I've seen pictures of him. But right Perkins for those who don't know. It was a great wide receiver and Alabama and later the Baltimore Kotei. He was the the New York Giants coach when when Paul Bryant retired and he took coach. Place. He was replaced by Bill Parcells you did. Okay. And and you know, he was at Alabama for four years in left to go to Tampa. Of which didn't it did not work out. Very well. Head coach, I think in general manager down they seem like you got a percentage of the team or something. Yeah. I mean, delete Alabama. He he got the owner of the team was you Culverhouse who was big Alabama guy anyway. And he he he made one maybe the biggest NFL contract to date at the time. This was in nineteen eighty six or eighty seven. Yeah. And really it turned out to be a terrible decision because he made a lot of money, but his career never could really get back on track. And I thought he'd probably saved Alabama could have won a national championship in a year to Bama it went to brings me to my next question. You think him come from the New York media was probably a little a lot of the way Alabama media being so sure and. You know, but I'm not going to laxed poetic, but I pretty much got my start covering him. And we we cross swords quite a bit because he he came from. I mean, there's nothing quite like, the New York media, and he talked down to local reporters. No, real tolerance for them. You know that and it's a one day in the spring or summer call back, and I'll I'll fill up plenty of you up. I'll fill your ears up with my own problems with him. And they were they were epoch. Let me you one other thing, I'm missing some your callers and seem right now, we have a lot ala. Bama fans that no one's going on in the last ten or twenty years. The really don't know Alabama's heritage and pedigree going back in the twenties. You know, the twenty five twenty six teams they were in the first thing to really put Alabama manual now. And they own a football out. Anyway, Alabama's only thing from the south of anything in that time frame, but coach Thomasson coach Wade, we're kind of bear Brown Nick savings and their day in a lot of people don't realize but alibi analyst blessed with excellent coaches in the twenties and thirties and forties is well in. About two two of the best coaches in that of that era. Yeah. No doubt. Yes, sir. And I just encourage if callers and fans to raise some of that history. And there's really a lot h didn't care characters and personalities and athletes that came to see those times before even coach Bryant, you know, play in the forties. But anyway, it's just it's such a good tradition. Close him. He think produce we'll get see back row. I I do I think again. I give you an exact year. No. But but I think you saw the signs of it during the season with a couple of games. He didn't have the manpower. I mean, he ought to go to be Kentucky and Auburn with that team was pretty extrordinary in you saw them give out later in the season, especially against Missouri and Vanderbilt, but I think he is I think he's coming to to his own. I think he recruited very well. But it really nice if you to call that was fun conversation. Good to have you on. We are up against a bright. We have a couple of guests in the next thirty minutes. And we will talk about free agency in college football next. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Brought to you by capital on capitol. One wants to build a better Bank one that feels and acts nothing like a typical Bank. It's why they're reimagining banking by offering accounts with no fees or minimums and one of the best savings rates in America. You can open a Capital One account from anywhere in five minutes. That's banking reimagined Capital One. What's in your wallet capital? One NA. God you back with us here on a Friday afternoon as we head for the weekend. A lot of conversation about what else the transfer portal. The free agency this week. We learned that the NC double A after opening the gates now are they trying to close them a little bit. Dan Murphy from ESPN has been covering the Dallas great to have you on the program. Paul. Yeah. It seems like we talked to you quite often during the tumultuous times of the fall with urban Meyer and other stories, but this is a little this different story. So what can the NC double A do now? Or what are they going to try to do? Now that players are leaving with abandonment. I don't know that they fully know the answer to that yet. I I think that they realized and it got enough feedback coaches in schools that they want to pump the brakes and figure out if they if they need to change the rules that they've laid out so far. And I know there's been a handful of proposals from different coaches around the country about ways, you can tweet some of these rules to try to make it maybe, you know, keep it easy for players that really need to leave school because of a bad situation easier. But maybe slowdown the being a little play right away in some of the impetus for for guys that are. Just looking for easy way out of a bad depth chart situation. So. I'm trying to understand now that the I mean again, you know, some of these cases were seeing Martel Justin field shape Patterson. I mean, this is a little bit different than than you're running the mill. But do you think they can walk it back? I know I've already asked you this. But I'm just trying to think once you once you open that door. How do you? How do you start to gently close it? Yeah. I mean, this isn't totally out of the ordinary for the way the NCW rolls out a lot of its legislation. They kind of throw something out there. They it. It creates some unintended consequences coaches, or in this case, you know, players if find loopholes to try to exploit that and try to make the most of those new rules, I guess the other way think about it. And then they make some adjustment. So I think the pendulum is definitely swapped further in the the favor of the players. And I don't think it will. Swing back too far away from them. But I wouldn't be surprised if you returns to the mean a little bit with some of the questions they decide to make Dan getting even beyond that we saw in both Patterson's case. And most recently just until case I mean, there was some mitigating circumstances Martell who just left the house state is a little bit of a different situation. What is the view on that? I in terms of where the NCWA is are they just trying to avoid lawsuits or are they going to let everyone go, regardless what what's your view on that? Well, the language that they set up for these new transfers is incredibly vague and had to be intentionally vague of basically it says if if something happens that you can document that affects your wellbeing, then you can apply for one of these waivers granted one of these waivers. How they define well being. I mean, that's a very broad term and can range from safety to. You know, anything? Martellus claim is basically, you know, from what I understand is coach left, and then you quarterback came and that affects his well being because he's no longer going to have the same opportunities to to perform and try to earn a pro contract. So I think the maybes roles and is now trying to sort through exactly how they're going to apply. The letter of that law and exactly what wellbeing will end up meaning finally on that six months from now or year from now, how do you think this is going to look, I don't think it will look all that much different. I mean, look we go through this every year with with the different problem. Whether it's training tables over the amount of hours, the players are allowed to spend with coaches, and and there's no there's going to be a problem with whatever solution they come up with and it's because of these are all symptoms of the bigger problem, which is the NCWA trying to, you know, use the language of of one system in theory of you know, this is an after school. Activity that that our students happened to take place in and wedge it into a system that's outgrown that by leaps and bounds and more of a business. And until they addressed the bigger problem. There's gonna be no easy answer really to any of these questions. Then many. Thanks, great to have you on. Thank you. Dan Murphy with the latest on transfer portal. It's get into the caller portal. Now with the king of all media. I'm in. Hey, good afternoon. Call the man who doesn't need hotels. He's on the air. No. You just go Mon you start on this. When the bell rings, you come out like, Mike Tyson. Swing for no doubt and listening. When people are on host, you you should hear the bail. And if you don't hear the fail don't say nothing. Mighty more call back. Then that if everything can you hear me, can you hear me you there? I won't don't fall. I talk Paul ball up in over and all, but my youngest son moved to all day.

So they're kind of looking after the car and everything and looking around the Auburn, Alabama. Can get the talk sports, and I mentioned firebomb which I don't normally do. But I tell you because of this program, you know, my son's got somebody that he can go to now that actress with that break guys. And I'm sure that's right guys all over state within these kind of things that my son happens to be near town. And I tell you I'm not to give great big shout outs. Harold Josh Paul and David because rate guys in a great atmosphere Venice because of the program, and he knows things like that. So many people do experience your son things, and we know that but this little things like that became not get that far extended families and their safety and things and not just want. Appreciate that. Yeah. Yeah. I was talking to someone from California today, and they were trying they were marketing people, and they were trying to understand this program. And they asked me about it. And I I referred to it as. Cross between a family and a Facebook page. And I am always amazed as you pointed out the reach and not so much because of anything we do. It's just the fact that this is a a gathering place, and there aren't many places like this anywhere in the medium or media today. Thank you. I really appreciate glad your son got situated. Well, let's talk to Mike in New Jersey on this Friday afternoon almost Friday night. Hey, Mike, how you doing Paul doing? I'm from the land of where college football does not exist. The northeast. Swamp up there. Well, yeah. That too. Well, they they try, but you know, obviously, it's nothing what you guys have down there, which I'm quite envious of. But I am a big Alabama fan. Johnny Musso was my introduction way back when but I did wanna follow up on what bud was talking about from Alabama the twenties in the thirties. I'll tie this in with Abbott and Costello because Johnny Mack Brown. Who was a great football player for Alabama in the mid and late twenties. Sure was Alabama in ride em cowboy the Abbott and Costello a great movie. And if I'm not mistaken bear Brian played with Johnny Mack Brown, and I just wanted to touch on that because but had brought it up, and I'm sure there's a lot of people who don't know who Alabama really was in that. That movie, and he was Johnny Mack Brown who played in quite a lot of why you might say great b westerns and I just wanted to tie that in. That was the first that was Alabama's first Rose Bowl team. I believe and it really did put the crimson tide on the map. Oh, yeah. And and the twenties and thirties, and like, I said, you know, we don't really have college football up here. I mean, listen, I spent probably. Two or three days a week a piece this fall of in Connecticut in New York City, and I was surprised though walking walking in New York had some strange occurrences running into New York. Thanks for the call, by the way, New York policemen occasional passersby, but no, it's it's not football country. That is as baseball basketball. It's but college football is barely penetrates the northeast other except maybe state college or a few other places we're up against a break will head to Lexington. Find out more about tomorrow's big game between Kentucky and Tennessee. Seth Greenberg from college game day. He will give us a preview coming up next to listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Geico presents unhelpful home improvement. How To's a slippery bathroom floor can result in expensive hospital bills? So today, I'll show you how to cook.

Visit Geico dot com and see how affordable renter's insurance can be. We welcome you back in. We're glad that you're here. And let's talk a little bit about the game tomorrow night at Rupp arena. You got the number one, right? Kennedy valves coming into Rupp and Seth Greenberg joining us you'll be on college game day tomorrow. He's been on all day today. So thanks for the time. So here we go vows have been tested before. But nothing quite like tomorrow night. At rope before we get to Tennessee, the LSU game, you think that will have any impact on on the mindset of of Kentucky heading into tomorrow night. I don't know if that's on the mindset, but I think that you know, Tennessee learned valuable lesson defensively that they could potentially utilize. It gets Kentucky that is LSU guard action Hagans they played softball fame and those steals down at the end of the game where because his band left him because he's not a great threat to score it and came at double the got the ball out of the wash hands. So I think the team one thing about gray by young teams Paul is that they have the ability get to next play and bounce back. They're young enough. They don't know any better the environment is going to be absolutely terrific. The bigger question is they've got to do better job at containing the basketball second-half tree about waters guided anywhere he wanted to. And they got do backdrop execute shooting in the half court there a hundred twenty six to the country in points per possession in the half court. That's not gonna win you close games. They've got to get better executing and a half court talking to Seth Greenberg about. Tomorrow night before we get to deep. I want to get your thoughts on on LSU. We had we'll wait on here yesterday. And I know nobody should be too surprised especially someone who covers the game as closely as you. But what was your impression of them? And what can they do the rest of the way? I think they're really good. I think that look they've got they've got lent. They've got a very good back court with liberty maturity treatment waters is got a toughness. He's got kind of a winning gene tool and Skylife as to be is their most important player because he has a high Basque by Q. He's got maturity about his game. He's shot maker. And he has a poison about it that I think is throughout their teeth. Their front court is really athlete. You know, when you give and that Williams come off the bench rebounded the ball splashing of Mangan finishing around the basket when you got I'm not as big on Nasreen as other people, but he is outfit. They've got enough bodies enough length enough. Athleticism and enough experience that they can beat anyone in this conference at times they play for both teams because they're not that Thomson not as disciplined as they need to be. But in terms of their athleticism in a potential. They're very good one last question on them. I mean, they have found themselves in in in real holes, especially a couple of weeks ago, remember against Missouri. I think there were down by fourteen came back to win. They struggled in a similar position with Arkansas and ended up losing that game. When when you see a team do that. I realize you have to have great talent to come back. But what what what does it tell you? If anything about the team, and what perhaps could happen to them as they get closer to the tournament. Yes. Maturity some they get loose with the ball shot selection gets impacted they're not as focused defensively, they become it. If they become a team that has the potential to get to the lead eight they become a key. As will get knocked out is the first second round not because of palate. Because of the poach maturity at execution. They're more and that politic team that 'execution theme, but I'm a big tree might waters fan. I mean, I think it starts with it. If he had Schuyler maze kid, basically lead and send a message to this team. No, young guys foul. That's the key. You you gotta remember that would some of these young Gus who think they're wanna ducks. Will they follow the leaders number one number two is when they get down the stretch of the season. Alright are they were concerned about where they are potentially in the draft or where you know where they help take their team. So there's some variables when you get with these young really talented teams with coaches that have haven't had that type of experience coach those guys at tournaments in the couple of minutes, we have left. Let's dig deep into tomorrow night, eight o'clock tip ESPN Seth as you prepare for tomorrow morning and look forward to this game tomorrow night really eager to hear. Where you think this will this game? We'll be one. Well, I think there's a couple of batches you gotta watch right? Let's start at the point guard position toward phone acetate. Esta Haggas, there's not been good less. Five teams hasn't been good. I'm the game. He had zero steals one. Assists. Didn't do good job at the paving the basketball playing against Jordan boat, who's playing at elite rebel last five games, averaging fourteen at seven and a half and Justice to me. He's the pulse of this team. I mean, he's playing at a high level he guards it he pushes it. He gets others involved gets him into the half court set. So that's going to be a match up to watch the match up to watch is going to be PJ Washington. Grant Williams, I mean, PJ Washington last seven games twenty one points, nine rebounds, more portly. How he's getting those points. He gets him on the left block where you works for the beta he gets the left elbow. He gets up in a trail spot shooting trout threes. Ten for twenty in the last, you know, last five games, I think from seven games from the three. So I they're gonna make grant Williams defend and they're gonna. To go play through PJ washed that's way to guard grant Williams getting foul. Trouble execution. Half court will be because I think Tennessee will do a good job of taking Kentucky out of transition. Some because they don't turn it over bunch. So Kentucky's going to have to execute in the half court, Tennessee second in the country points per possession in the half court Kentucky, like I said, I think they won twenty six or one twenty eight. So that'll be something to watch and then offense rebounding ably. The last thing, you know, Kentucky's a very good offensive rebound came, Tennessee. Good offensive rebounded team. Not a very good defensive rebounding. Kate Kentucky can steal some extra possessions by get glass. Seth many many things really great to have you on on this Friday afternoon. I can't wait for tomorrow tarp break. Thank you so much for have they call. You gotta test Greenberg. Live in Lexington were Tennessee will go off as a slight underdog Cording to Vegas about three points. If you were interested, you can interpret that any. The way you want. But the home feel the home court, I should say at Rupp is enormously valuable. Well, we've covered a lot of ground today from checking with Michael Collins at Riviera to getting pretty good assessment of free agency in college football. And the final hour we'll continue with your phone calls. We'll also talk a little bit about some of the issues facing college football. And maybe how they can be rectified, especially from in attendance standpoint up against the break. Your phone calls continue at eight five five to four to seven to eight five.

The Kevin Sheehan Show

Dwayne Haskins: Yes or No?

"You want? It you need it. It's what everyone's talking about their Kevin Sheehan show. Now, here's Kevin. You're listening to the sports big. That's right time. He's here Aaron tear. This shows presented by window nation. If you're in the market for windows. Call eight six six ninety nation or go to win donation dot com. And tell them that we told you to call we'll have a game seven tomorrow night in Washington Carolina. Tommy, the desperate team the home team. I think the better team last night and the defending champs will have to win at home tomorrow night to continue their Stanley Cup defense. But I think their Stanley Cup pedigree may pay dividends tomorrow night. It's been it's been a the caps or ten and three on the road last year in the playoffs. That clearly hasn't happened this time around but still could could win their next ten on. They could if they get a chance the Plato's, but so far. This has been a home ice series. And if Carolina's crowd had a big impact once they get a lead to you know, I think part of the cap strategy has been and they did it early. What is to take the crowd out of the game? And that's pretty amazing that that value that so much, you know, caps crowd has to do the same thing. They have to be able to to make it difficult for Carolina to concentrate. I don't know how much how effective that always is. But they rave about it in in in Raleigh. I really enjoyed your column. The other day on the caps. I thought it was really well done, and you talked about, you know, the outside world, you know, speaking in terms of the capital's franchise having Stanley Cup pedigree. Will they do they won the Stanley Cup last year? And I think they have played thus far is certainly on. Saturday night with a championship swagger to them. I actually thought they played pretty well last night in the first period when they came out with the intention of ending the series, right then and there last night. I really did. I thought that they played well last night in the first period. And then the final forty minutes not so good. There was a controversial call which we will get to here momentarily. But do you have an opinion of it? Yeah. I do. Okay. But I did want to mention that our cap segment today is presented as it has been since the playoffs. Started by Mamma Lucia Mamma Lucia has a caps hockey playoffs special going on right now thirty dollars for a large pizza and chicken parm, so large pizza chicken parm for thirty dollars. However, you can get it for twenty dollars. If you order online at Mamma Lucia restaurants dot com and use my promo code Kevin caps. All lower case. K E C A P S chicken parm large. Pizza for just twenty dollars. When you order online use my promo code Kevin gaps, and that's for pickup or delivery first of all on the game itself. Clearly, you know, you get into these situations in sports in general where you get the team that's down in a series and they're playing a home game. And they have a wild frenzied home atmosphere, which Carolina clearly has have a sense desperation the other team doesn't and they played like that. And even though the that's why thought I was impressed with what the caps did in the first period to sorta take control early on in that game scoring the first goal, which is meant the winning team in this series in the first five games and to take a two one first period lead. And I thought the caps were in pretty good shape. I really did. I thought that they had come out and they looked like the team not necessarily that dominated on Saturday night. But a team that had, you know, the ability to end it last night, but Carolina was desperate. Here's the. Thing an talk in part hockey, you know, language, I'm sure in in much of it won't be the thing that has surprised me in watching the first six games of this series. And I think it does translate to increased win probability if you wanna talk in those terms Carolina four checks sold Gresley like they are constantly badgering the caps in their own zone. Their defensemen as they're trying to get set to to move the puck up the ice. They're they're down there pressuring their badgering. They're inching their defense men into the offense zone. And what led to last night it appeared to me? And as lead to this in multiple games in this series is Carolina's just had more puck possession time. And they've had more opportunities. Now, they didn't Saturday night. But last night looked. Games. Three and four actually actually games wanted to a little bit like games one out played in games. One and two in terms of of rush in terms of puck possession say for the the fortunate goals that they got from Backstrom and Ovechkin they out shot the caps last night. The caps have been hitting and have been very physical team here in the last couple of games. I think going back to game four when they when they hurricanes one game three. I thought the cats had played a better game in game four, but in my right that that Carolina's four check is leading to more puck possession time. And therefore more opportunities. They are so aggressive and we're last night there defensemen had possession of the puck in the offense of zone. A lot of the night last night. Like, it just seemed like the caps were always being pressured like through for a basketball analogy, it's the team that's constantly pressuring defensively. They're pressure. With full court pressure. They're they're pressuring manned man, picking up at the half court line. And it just seems like Carolina at times, I'm not saying from a hitting perspective because I know that the caps have out hit the canes, and that they've been very physical. But from a style of play it's been Carolina. That's pressured more in taking it to the caps a little bit more. And I think it's led to more puck possession time. Well, you know, seriously talked about this and other playoffs in other sports that the hot team going into into the playoffs has an advantage and Carolina down the stretch played some very good hotpoint played the hockey you're seeing now. So where it's like what they've had is. They've had their foot on the pedal for awhile and the caps didn't have to. They really didn't have to they played well in spurts they wanted division, you know, but Carolina compare it to the two thousand eight. Eight capitals the Bruce Boudreau caps that once he took over around thanksgiving. They went on a tear. They went on a tear and they play the flyers in the first round and seven game series. And I've talked to George McPhee, and he says out of all the failed playoff appearances. He thinks that was their best chance to more through their first time really thinks that was because of the momentum. They had Harry. Philadelphia. I mean that the momentum that they had at the end of the season that carry them to a seventh game. I forget who they were lying to play after that. But on my podcast arts and Kirpal. He said that once because I thought the best postseason tap steam before last year where the deal hunter caps, and they were some extent but two thousand eight the capitals were Carolina that hot team. Columbus was really hot. Yes. Coming into to dispose season. And now they've had to wait, you know, the islanders Columbus because they swept their opponents. And now the other two series are going to seventh and deciding games they may have cool off a little bit may be advantage to teams that advance out of the Boston Toronto series and the Washington Carolina series. Now last night was interesting too. Because while I do believe Carolina plate is the desperate team the home team they four checked. Well, they had. Possession advantages certainly in the last forty minutes of the game. It was also typical of hockey in that there were there was tons of good fortune for them. You know that first goal by Fogel. It was. I mean that is just you know, bouts off different things in. But that by that's a playoff goal. It's a Spinning World dervish. Just fires. It it hits a bunch of things and goes in the Justin Williams goal. Okay. That's that's at your mind. I mean, seriously how many times could he do that? I understand the hand eye coordination with these hockey players east through the roof off the charts. Incredible. But just because you get your stick on a puck. It's in the air doesn't mean that it's going to bounce in such a way that it goes under hope as legs, you know, what that was like that was like hitting a pool ball while it's going about fifty miles an hour into the pocket. You wanted to? Oh, I'm not let me make sure I'm being clear on this. I understand that. There is a skill level. And that it's not unusual for somebody in hockey to take their stick and pick a puck at of the air, and in deflected somehow, it's the result of the deflections that is a one in twenty five that's gonna go whiz was the blink of an eye to fly. I know. Yeah. But but but you see the deflections Happel the time in that's what they're trying to do. They're trying to redirect the buck in a way in which it the tender's not, you know, anticipate zooming that he did that on purpose. Oh, there's no doubt. He did it on purpose. But the result of what he did on purpose with fluke. Okay. Because the result to me. I don't know what the odds are it certainly seems like it would be a longer shot than one ten that. It's going to go in. Yes, it does. Okay. So it was that kind of good fortune to that Carolina. That went with the they played with desperation. They played at home. They played well, but they also got good for. Fortune. I mean, that's to those first two goals are to with a four the last two of the five last one was in empty netter. I mean, the first one again, that's the kind of goal you see in playoff hockey when you have traffic in front of the net your favorite thing. But Justin Williams his success in the postseason. They have heard this said when he was here. Yes. And now in Carolina that he just knows how to get it done around the net. You know, when he was he was there. A couple of other times with a chance now on the controversial no goal call that would have tied at three three that sent Ovechkin into, you know, quite quite a tirade profanity laced. I. I don't I didn't know the rule until we're watching last night. You see all the replays? And you hear locker and Jobe, and I'm watching that broadcast not the national broadcast and Joe being locker disagreed locker said that's the rule. He hit the pad, the goalies. Pat, Ovechkin did after coups nets off stuffed it in there. I saw I thought I saw the puck moving a little bit underneath his pad in that wasn't trapped. I think the re- the referee would have been able to bail himself out of all of this had. He just said, I blew the whistle. It was unders Pat, I blew the whistle. But one he didn't blow the whistle. The it was interface. It was the the interference. With Ovechkin not getting the stick on the puck. But getting the stick on the goalies pad, which is not allowed. But the puck was still moving. Tommy, I thought so I thought personally it was a bad call by the letter of the law. I thought the puck had to be trapped tr. Wrap to me means it's not moving. I thought the puck may have still been moving with that said the call on the ice was no goal. And I guess they didn't have clear evidence that it should have been overturned job. As point was. It's not the spirit of the rule, right, right, which really shouldn't matter necessarily, right? But I, but I, but I thought I thought the puck was still moving. Therefore, I thought there was some evidence there that the puck wasn't fully trapped. Therefore, Ovechkin had the opportunity to go for whether there's you know, I guess still at that point. It would be goalie interference. If the puck hits the pad if the stick hits the pad and not the puck if the puck sluice, I I don't know. I seem golden meet seem like if it had been called the goal on the ice. It would have been a goal. It seemed like one the me did. Yeah did. But let's remember here all you conspiracy. Theorist the. NHL wants the capitals in the Stanley Cup playoffs. They wanna see the capitals move on. They're not interested in seeing the Carolina Hurricanes move on the face, New York island Asir draw. Right may want to see the cap, so they may be incompetent. But there's no there's no personal grudge. That's a good points. The Washington Capitals. That's a really good point. Because right now in these playoffs. The caps are the big draw by just because they're the defending champs if they had lost the Stanley Cup final last year. They'd be the biggest draw left in these playoffs. I think that's true. Certainly in the east with no Pittsburgh. Right. Not empa-. They're the biggest draw left in the east out west. I mean, you've already got upsets galore there. Dallas beat Nashville last night in overtime actually stayed up in watch that that was very exciting. I mean, you talk about an overtime it ended seventeen minutes in few seconds into overtime. And Tommy those first seventeen minutes of overtime. And by the way, the last ten minutes of regular. In one game. There were so many scoring chances. It was amazing that the game didn't end before it finally did. But out west Dallas was the lower Sita team. Saint Louis was the lower seeded team Colorado was essentially Nate beating one so you've had that twice in this post-season. And I think that tomorrow night, you get the seventh and deciding game between Vegas and San Jose. How about that? That's pretty good. That's what they talk about the big hot the biggest draw. Yeah. I mean, I don't know who the stars are that are left in. But nobody's biggest stars veteran. No, nobody is speaking of vegetable and his temper tantrum. I want to read what Todd Reardon said after the game when told reporters. He's all in any motion. Guida cares. A ton. You look back a few years ago. And there were some people that talked about his lack of care for five years ago. You did. And I think it's so far from that. He's all about wanting to win emotionally wears it on his sleeve. That's not how we want to handle it. But I think a little bit of it shows his passion and desire to win. And then he goes on to say like I said four or five years ago. It would have been like, well, why doesn't he react and get mad? And now he's unbelievably passionate about trying to do everything he can about pushing out team to the next level. And knows that he's going to do everything in his power to help us. Do it. I expect him to be motionless involved right from the drop of the puck at home. And I believe in our team why pring up. This perception of Ovechkin before why bring up the old perception of Ovechkin. No, I think it was just a way to Ella street. The new would his perception when when the view of you changes, that's because it was another way before and he he pretty much on record said people thought Ovechkin didn't care. You didn't think he cared? I don't think he cared enough. Yeah. You know, I don't think you failed at this time of the year. He was as interested in getting home in playing for his national team. Right as he was advancing. I mean to me to bring this up now is kind of foolish because. Look they gotta Stanley Cup banner hanging from the rafters. They got their name on the Stanley Cup. The greatest trophy in sports. They've got rings that none of that can be taken away from them. No matter what happens in the seventh game. But years from now, I mean Ovechkin and the capital still have this window of opportunity, however, difficult it is to win more than one Stanley Cup, which many people thought they should've had more than one by this time. Yeah. I I don't I don't have a problem. I think I know what he was trying to do. I didn't hear it. I think he was he was he was trying to say, you know, for all of those people that thought that Ovechkin never had that burning desire to win. He always has had it even though the perception was that he didn't have it before. And now, you're rising. I don't see him saying he always has had it. Okay. Well, I mean, here's the thing. It doesn't matter anymore. Vetch kin to the fact that it has mass Stanley Cup be has about missed opportunity. Okay. Well. Would be much worse. If they were talking about, of course in never having wanna Cup the seventy nine to eighty three Orioles. They went to the World Series and seventy nine to Pittsburgh and seven and eighty they one hundred games and the Yankees one hundred and three in eighty one you had to strike a split season. And the Orioles one more games and anybody America is Yankees because they didn't win there. They didn't win the split season in eighty two. They lost to the brewers on the last weekend. Remember that? Yes. It was like a four game set. They won the first remarkable. Jim Palmer pitched that last one. Yes. And got beating that killed. Yeah. Eighty three they want an eighty three day one it I know that team thinks they should've had more to show for it than one World Series. And bothersome I know that the eighty six Mets who lost out to the eighty five cardinals in the NL. Lost out to them again, eighty seven cardinals NO east, and then got beat by the dodgers in the in the championship series in eight that teams should've had more to show for it then one World Series. So while you always have that to keep you warm at night, there's party that thinks about the missed opportunities. I mean, you could have been great times great multiplied. And I think when he brings that up. It's a reminder of look, you know, George McPhee thinks they would've wanted two thousand eight I think the year that they took the penguins to seven games and then got pommelled six two six nothing. Three the road after Africa penguins was easy to caps could have that easy path. I think there's at least, you know, the Dale hunter takes the in in the semi finals Eastern Conference. Semifinals takes the Bruins two to seven games. I think any of those three teams could wanna Stanley Cup and. I think that's going to be part of the narrative, it's not going to find him. But it's going to be part of it. You know, as you were saying that I was thinking about you know, other teams in sports that felt like they should have had more, you know, hockey's one of those sports where you've had these dynasties whether it was the islanders in the seventies and eighties eighties. Pittsburgh it cetera. Even black end the Blackhawks had had a a mini run, their, you know, who probably at the end of the day when it's all said and done will feel like they should've had more the patriots seriously. I mean, they have they went to how many soup. Six but they they lost. How many lose lose? Will. They lost to Philly. They lost to the giants. And how do they lose? It. Lost three right now Brady's been denying lost one six they lost three because the page. They lost to the joints twice in their loss to the eagles. Right. And they lost by such a such at least in some of those games all of them all close margin. Right. But, but you know, the the bears of the eighties got one. Yeah. Eighty five. Yes. And it was a team that I think lost to the Redskins twice as number one seed in the NFC playoffs. They were certainly fourteen in two team one of those years when the Redskins went in there. I think that was the Darryl green punt return game and the other year when Flutie had to start for McMahon. I think they had the best record in the NFC. But they certainly don't field advantage. They I'm not trying to diminish what Ovechkin has time to saying. If they lose this series. It will stick in their crawl again. Because that they seem to be good enough to continue to compete for the Stanley Cup championship. Will remember bef- after the Pittsburgh loss in two thousand seventeen people thought the window had started to shut because Ovechkin was getting older and his best was behind him. That was the conversation. I know after they lost to the pens in two thousand seventeen last year when they're down to nothing to Columbus in the first round. And most people thought that series is probably over that was the end of it that was going to be the end of the cap. Yes, that would have been it. So this, you know, they wanted unexpectedly last year they are now in contention in the favorite to win it again this year because of what's happened earlier in the postseason all after the window supposedly shutting closing right? I don't know. We say this all the time about hockey, and yet hockey's had these dynasties, we just, you know, laid out from the islanders to Edmund into Pittsburgh. It's just the postseason results for the caps. When you go back through. It's so many of them were really fluky. Yes. And and some of them like their game seven loss to the Rangers in two thousand thirteen the game seven loss in two thousand nine thousand ten to Montreal. The Montreal thing was of goaltender standing on his head. Yes. The goalie the hockey thing two thousand eight you said that surprises me their first playoff team during the Ovechkin air them. They had a federal on that I know in the last year, right? And will they had federal for the loss to Montreal to right? They did right on the two thousand nine home loss in game seven to Pittsburgh when it was five nothing like an hour and ten minutes. Remember that it was three nothing before people got exactly. Yeah. So some that were completely out. So. My point is in Ovechkin remember in a lot of the game sevens. Specifically I remember going through this last year before the Tampa game seven and a lot of those game sevens. He didn't play. Well, no now in the postseason in general. Statistically, Ovechkin had very good rec- has this is my point is. I mean, I don't think he he saying that wasn't true that that that narrative Ovechkin before I don't think he's dismissing. So what's wrong with admitting? It. If if you're if you're suing that he's being truthful what's wrong with talking about a man who's grown. Well. There's nothing wrong with it, except it means missed opportunities that nobody will care about. If you go on to win another Stanley Cup or two you would have race that if you know also veteran this done in seventeen years and has won Stanley Cup. He'll always have that. I mean, his legacy is set. But people might my I think some people will look back and say, why didn't he have more? I think that that'll be a part of the conversation. I think clearly that will be part of the conversation. Clearly what he's avoided though is the conversation of being Patrick Ewing and Barkley and really a step above that Neko take that away from because he really was arguably the best player the game. And I don't know that Barkley and Ewing were with Jordan in the NBA. They weren't the best player in the game. And maybe you know, people would say well with Sidney Crosby in the game. Ovechkin hasn't been the best player. But he certainly, you know, been a hall of fame lock, you know, all time. Great. And it's just funny the way hockey works. I know that we get wrapped up into the randomness of the sport. And there's a lot of things that would say that it's not as random when you look at the dynasties, but for the caps man over the years. There was definitely some choking going on in some of the late against three to one leads. And and you know, not playing well in close out. Games or seventh games. I think by the way just taking it to tomorrow night. I think they're gonna play well and win. I think they are too. I just have a feeling that first of all I think I don't know this to be true. I assume that they're more talented than Carolina. I assume that Caroline after watching these first six games that really if Ovechkin and Kusanagi soften particular play their best nobody on Carolina's as good as either one of those two players. Yeah. Put but because nets I know is is on the hot seat. A he he was basically invisible as night until near the end of the game. And he was really the reason they made their run last year. If you back, I think a lot of people said this that cruise nets was really the MVP the post season for them last. Yes. Now had did. They miss. Oh, she last night. They didn't miss him in game six did. They miss him last night. I I think they're going to win tomorrow night. I I'm basing it on for whatever reason they're defending champion. They played with this swagger with. This confidence on Friday on Saturday night in a in a pivotal game five and a two series. I just would be shocked if they don't play. Well, I think you're right. You're right on all. I would not have felt this way a year ago. No, okay. But after what happened last year, and then I thought we saw some of that in game five I think it's called the Stanley Cup pedigree just real quickly because I was saying that because you had mentioned to me before the show started that there was, you know, the some of the attack announcers were talking about the caps and their Stanley pedigree. Is it jumped out at the screaming? I said, whoa. The capitals, I know they won the Stanley Cup. But now they have a pedigree. I thought that was that was that was an impressive turnaround for this organization that outside announcers, basically, think of them as a Stanley Cup champion now that may seem obvious they won the Stanley Cup. But for a team that was always seeing just the opposite direction. I mean like like like Todd Reardon said about Ovechkin I mean, they were seen in the opposite of you point before. I just think it's impressive the turnaround. You know, part of that too. Is that last year wasn't in a fluke Stanley Cup win. They came back against Columbus. They came back with two shutout victories over Tampa, Pittsburgh in that second round they got through the the team that had you know, basically ended their season so many times in and been the biggest impediment. To playoff success. And then you know, they gave up a bunch of goals in frenzied atmosphere in Vegas, and they won four straight including clinching on the road. And and then the celebration there was something about the way to caps did it last year to that. I think makes hockey people say I've confidence level in this team that I've never had before. Yeah. Now, I remember last year after that game one in Vegas. One columnist town in particular said the series. I do remember is over was you score four goals on the road against flurry and lose you. You've lost your opportunity to win the series. I thought I thought in that moment. It was a brilliant column. I did lived in turn out that way. Let's take a moment to to mention window nation real quickly. Have you started your spring checklist? Tommy do of spring checklist. I never have a checklist. I move forward every day with what's in front of just you don't have to do. To do this. Who do you think I am? You are not that organized. Gotta check right now to see if your hoes works. You gotta check see at the lawn mower works and are the windows easily opened if you're struggling, and it's making noise and there's moisture in they're hard to get open. And maybe they're even cracked it's time to think about new energy efficient windows from window nation.

What's in front of me is what is what's on my list? Call eight six six ninety nation today or online at window nation dot com, again, eight six six ninety nation. You will not be disappointed. Tell them that. I sent you. All right. Let's get to some NFL draft talk. And actually. Yeah. Baby. It's installed in general. In fact, I start with this. I don't know if you saw this. But there was a poll taken by Greg Rosenthal. I'm sorry. It was a story written by Greg Rosenthal at NFL dot com, where he did his NFL general manager rankings, and he Tommy basically took the new general managers in put them in a category on their own where they weren't really ranked. They're finding their seven new guys basically like Mike Mayock, Eric Decosta's, finally take over for for good in in Baltimore, and Chris Greer and Miami. And so that left twenty five general managers, right? You know, lead guys personnel guys in organizations to be ranked twenty five to one I would think somebody with with with the prince of darkness 's credentials. Somebody like Bruce Allen who's been a front office person for a long time. I mean, you know, Oakland, Tampa Washington. Somebody is respected as that would probably I think rank in the top ten right? No, I don't I don't think. So no number one was Bella chick. All right, accounted Bellichik is the lead personnel guy. They count him league. I never how we Roseman and Philadelphia was to Kevin Colbert and Pittsburgh was three. Despite would Colbert said about pendulums burger and Ben's children yet his forty five children. John Dorsey in Cleveland flies up the rankings from last year. He's number four and Dimitrova Atlanta's five I would have thought John Schneider would have been he would have been at the top of my list in in Seattle. Of course, neither was here in Washington start his career off. But he was number six where does the NFC word of the NFC skies come in? While I mentioned how he rose him in at two next up believe it or not in these rankings is Jerry Jones at twelve Jerry's considered the lead guy, even though he really isn't necessarily the lead guy, isn't it snug and Jones through a lot of. Well, they have a true general manager as well. But Jerry's ranked twelfth. And then Dave Gettleman for the giants comes in at nineteen. So those are the other three NFC east teams out of five eighteen you're down the nineteen ready and not having gotten to Bruce quite that must be mistake. So out of the twenty five general managers and remember Bruce does not have a general manager title. Just like, you know, Jerry Jones doesn't have I don't think general manager title. I don't think he has human title either. But that's, but what Rosenthal's really writing or are about the key in lead decision makers in these organizations when it comes to roster management and personnel. Seven new guys not ranked twenty five guys left that have been there and Bruce Allen out of the twenty five twenty fifth. This is what Rosenthal writes Allan has proven. Excellent. Againing the trust of ownership in Oakland. Tampa Bay in Washington, bridging the gap between ownership and the football side of the building. However, constructing a long-term vision in any of the locations has proven more challenging this ranking reflects his body of work rather than just the last few years along with a preference for management at Ames for championships rather than the soft middle of the NFL's standings, a reminder everybody that BRUCE'S record is not the soft middle. It's forty and seventy two since coming to Washington. It's the soft bottom is where his overall ranking is his record is which by the way, he made very clear year ago. That's what everybody should be judged on the organization and ridge wondered bridging the gap between ownership and the football side that falls under weasel them. That's what that falls under weasel them. That's what it is one way of you it with sucking up to the. Ball. Exactly. I by the way, just because you've had, you know, in the last couple of years you've had these the seven and nine, you know, seasons. Just because Tommy his record in the last few years, by the way, I've got I had the record wrong fifty nine eighty four and one is the overall record forty forty two and seventy was what pro football reference atmosphere that can't be right and they left two years out. Anyway, fifty nine eighty four in one is his record just because you've had you've been in the soft middle for four straight years, which they have been nine seven eight seven one seven nine seven nine this guy. And you could say it was Shanahan's organization in two thousand ten two thousand eleven two thousand twelve and two thousand thirteen and if you want to discount those and just start with two thousand fourteen and say we'll Bruce really didn't have control of the organization until Mike left. You know, even then you start with foreign twelve nine. Seven eight seven one seven nine seven nine I guess at that point you're talking about this off middle. But overall Bruce has had a losing record in virtually every place. He's been as the lead guy in may. I he's not a good personnel guy. He believes that he is. They're probably some things that Bruce does well for the owners that he's own for Davis being one of them. And then, of course, dance Neider here. And I think what that is is that Bruce is a good voice in lieu of the owners that he works for like he is a more preferred league voice. He's a more preferred communicator, then dance Neider would be or Al Davis would be or the Culverhouse family out. Davis was pretty near the end of his life when Preuss worked for. Yeah. That's true. Well, then then his son. Yeah. I mean, you know, would you want Mark Davis to be the leave? Cater. No, he looks like a dope. Yes. So I I don't I don't I can't the glazers by the way did Glazer's of the Culverhouse zone. I think been Culverhouse's own that put I think the Glazer's own that went Bruce when Bruce was there. Anyway, we don't have to spend a lot of time on that. I just point out that, you know, Bruce, Nate BRUCE'S name came up on another list of years ago. Yeah. At least trusted least trusted agent at least trusted general manager among NFL agents in the league. So he's he's got quite a resume. Does he get plaques for this being a bottom? Feeder for both. I don't you know, I I wonder sometimes whether or not this is like a badge of honor for him like a or if it's embarrassing for him. I don't I we've said this a bunch of times. I don't know what his reaction to the fire. Bruce, Allin hashtags been to virtually any. Nobody that follows football thinking that he's among the worst at what he does. I don't know what his reaction is. I think what Dan's rea actually, I might have a guess liquor. I think I might have let's get to the nitty gritty baby. Let's get a draft couple of guts get to what's going to be the biggest story of this draft. Which is what which is the Redskins trading for the rights to draft. Kyle Murray, you wanna bet on that. No. I don't bet on. That's that's my member we used to do Wong. Shop prediction, fully -able. Pro Bowl prediction here for you heard it here first baby dance, neither has been spending. Every waking hour trying to figure out a way to get collar Murray in a Redskins uniform and things seem to be slipping and his direction I think he might be thinking more about giving join Haskins into a Redskins uniform and how to make that happen. Again, I mentioned this yesterday. So there's still a lot of smoke around Haskins and the Redskins primarily coming from Todd mcshay who I watched early this morning, basically say just a lot. I'm hearing a lot about the Redskins in Haskins. And he said specifically that he thinks if the red skins really want Haskins they're more likely than not going to trade up. Doug Williams, told you yesterday that it's more likely that'll trade back than trade up. But that you you almost have to get in front of Denver at ten to be assured of having shot right at Haskins. God, I hope they're this. This is not true. If it is true. I will. I will absolutely be adamant that this is Now Dan Snyder's pushing an influence because I don't think the football people think Haskins is a better quarterback and lock is prospect. And I don't even think they think lock deserves to go at fifteen over. Rawle remember, and I mentioned this yesterday. Jay gruden's comments about a month ago, where he said lock is more ready now Haskins it's going to it would take a while. Jay doesn't wanna take a while doesn't have a while. He doesn't have a while. But I've heard that the football people like Locke more than Haskins. I've also heard recently that a couple of key football people scouts like Daniel Jones, more than they like anybody not named Murray. So if the Redskins end up on Thursday night or Thursday afternoon trading into a spot, and then ultimately taking Dwayne Haskins. I really believe that that would be an indication that Dan Snyder is back involved in a major way I think he was with Landon Collins degree. I think they tried to go get an Tonio Brown. I think this has been an off season about Snyder saying, Bruce, I can't take the guy's you've been giving me anymore. I'm not getting excited about arlando Scandic or Paul Richardson this offseason you've got. To give me more. And then we got a draft a guy that we can Bill the marketing plan around that we can sell tickets around. And I think Erin, and I talked about this yesterday after Cuyler Murray Haskins by foreign away has the most marketability of any of the quarterbacks in the crafts know him. It's a big drop. It's not that big. It's a big drought kinda Murray the the personality dynamic way in which he plays. But Dwayne Haskins was on TV just as much as Kyla Murray. Was I know that you know, in Ohio State, you knew who join Haskins was my point. That's fine Murray a little bit more than Haskins. No. But how a little bit more yet is a little bit. No, it's not if you're not if you're you're you're not a massive football or college. I know I know about business I know about sports business you do. And that's what. Yeah. I only teach a course in it at Georgetown good, you know. So I I know who's going to sell a lot more. Tickets and that's collar Murray. True. That's my point. I. I would not debate. It's Murray big drop the Haskins. And then big dropped everybody. I think it's a bigger drop from Haskins to everybody else in it is from Morita here because I think most football fans never saw drew lock play one game. I think most football fans never saw Daniel Jones play one football game. But they saw join Hassi. I even by accident. You saw join Haskins play a lot. I will give you that. I'll concede. There's a difference between marine Haskins from a marketability standpoint. No doubt in terms of name recognition, though, Haskins has much more name recognition and people can vision Dwayne Haskins looks like playing football more than they can drew locker Daniel Jones, plus he's a family friend. Well, he's certainly, you know was a was a classmate of Dan's, son. Yes. This would be a big mistake for the organization to make. I don't have a Mata draft expert. You know, that's not what Tommy and I've done over the years, although Aaron and argon fool around tomorrow with a mock draft and have a bunch of people call in and make the picks for the Redskins coolies going to be with me on Thursday. We'll be we'll do a full draft show on Thursday together. Portis is going to be on tomorrow. Get his thoughts CPA and Smoot actually of the ex players in town that are part of the media. They watch more college football than anybody. Trust me on Clinton Clinton watches a lot of college football. But I I do the players that I've watched you get as a college football fan errands, a big college football fan watches a lot of games to from the get-go. I was like this guy is going to be a big bust in the NFL. I just I would see him panic against pressure, and you can point to the big games that he played. Against michigan. And then the big ten title game against northwestern. That's who they played in the big ten title game. And then against Washington who does have a lot of NFL players on their defense. And by the way, he struggled a little bit in the second half of that game of that bowl game against Washington. If the Redskins make a big trade up, you know, they give up a second rounder. You know, third rounder to move up few spots and they take Dwayne Haskins. I personally will not be excited at all. I won't won't be excited. If they take a quarterback right now in this draft other than Cuyler Murray. And if they made a big move, and they went for it with Murray. You know, I would understand that. And I would be intrigued by it. Because I do think there's a chance that this guy could be sensational. Yeah. There could be Russell Wilson. But there's a lot to be RG three when it comes to off the field stuff. He there's. Yeah. I mean, come on you read the Clem co-pilot. Yeah. I mean, there were those another one today about he's. Got some issue that that that Dan Patrick interview was the shape of things to come. From talent standpoint, he's the one I'd get excited. No, no one else. Really? I mean, the will Greer stuff recently been standing reported that actually would be intrigued by that. If they got will Greer in the second round or maybe even more. Fortunately, the third round. Although I doubt it. But man, I would not be excited about Haskins. I really wouldn't be that excited about Jones were lock either. So I always off the Josh Rosen train. That's not happening. No. I would still, you know, love to see Josh Rosen for a package of the second whatever. But I last week. I had this sense. And I'm sticking with it that it's not gonna happen. And I think now more and more here the last couple of days including Adam schefters podcast yesterday. You're getting a feel for the Redskins being out of the Josh Rosen. But you know, you also could be smokescreen to it could be smokescreen. And look I mean, I feel confident that the cardinals are gonna take Murray. But there's a lot of people that think that. May not happen. Now. I mean, whatever it's the NFL draft. We're gonna have we're we're not gonna know until we know I did want to mention a couple of things number one. We're going to do this draft show. We're going to a lot of draft conversation tomorrow in sort of a lot of the beat reporters for the skins coming on to make the skins fifteenth pick overall Cooley will be on on on Thursday as well. Several of you asked if Tommy and I or cooling, and I would do some sort of draft night thing which we've been doing on radio for years. We're not going to do it. We're gonna put a really good show together on Thursday, and you'll be able to listen to it. And then we'll come back and we'll recap everything on Friday. I personally, you know, this is the way I felt over the years when we've done these draft shows, I would have preferred myself as a listener if I had been a listener to watch ESPN's coverage of the draft or watch the NFL networks coverage of the. Draft or listen to ESPN radio's coverage of the draft. This is a niche business this draft business. There are three dozen people call it that spend the entire year for these three days Thursday night Friday night and Saturday, they have a much better sense of what's going on. Then the person that's hosting in all around radio shores doing sports on sportscenter or whatever. So I I would much prefer to watch it for the first time in forever. 'cause I really do think the draft is a great television show on Thursday night. I think it's entertaining in part because you get to listen to these people have spent the whole hair preparing for this one night watching Mel love watching mill. I like watching USPS coverage in have over the years more than than NFL network's coverage. But I've never we've never gotten a chance to do it on the first two nights the third day in many times we were. Working on the third day. But we will have a really many times I was working on the third. Not we I did for the first couple of. I may I I was one out at FedEx field for craft. A couple of times until you talked your way out able to talk my way. Yeah. Well, I had more heavy lifting on the I do nights. Yes. Shirked? Sure. I did by the way quick I guess the point that I'm making is if I'm a football fan. And if I'm a Redskins fan, I've always felt this way, and we made money on those draft shows. That's why why they were worth. But I would have never tuned in to the a bunch of local guys talking about their own team for three hours before the pick was made. I never I always sat there you and I had this conversation cooling. I had this conversation. I'm like right now. Would you be listening to us or be watching Mel in mcshea and all the people that have been working year round in this by the way with their beat reporters who have all of the NFL context? And really know what's going. We'd sit there and basically read from Twitter. Yes. But you remember the year we got to interview Josh Larousse? Remember that you thought he was French. I reminded me of Bluto from animal house. I think he's still in the league. Well, what I was gonna say just to finish the thought is once the Redskins are on the clock or maybe a couple of picks. That's when you want local guys, and then you would love to hear from the draft choices, and I'm sure nine eighty I don't know if they'll have the ability as a rights holder to get the players, sometimes we did we got we get the player, you know, within an hour when Bruce done the other stations. I went through sounds about. Right. But I we're gonna do a really good draft show on Thursday cooling. I and tomorrow will be as well. And then Friday will be here to recap the whole thing. I got two things. I wanted to say, oh, we even know leaving. Okay. Mean we got a lot more to talk a lot more to talk about. Yeah. I'm kind of wiped out ready to go. Yeah. I got my lunch pail. I'm ready to go. Go ahead. Oh, go ahead. Now, I want I don't want to get in the way is this NFL draft related. No, okay. I already forgot what one of them was looking at the clock. You're you think you're ready to go right now. I thought I was. I don't even know what I was gonna say I was going to mention that Cole McCoy JP reported that Colt McCoy had another procedure on his leg heal. Maybe that's just getting his toenails clipped. No, that's I mean, I listen. Listen, Naylor leg. Listen when I cut my toenails. It's a procedure. Trust me. I'm sure with your toenails. They must be attractive yell at the Olympics in Salt Lake City. There was there was somebody giving away free pedicures and manicures and they came up to me. And I said not unless you have power tools. It's not gonna work. I did have a little bit more before we get to something that isn't NFL related for you. I wanted to mention just a couple of guys, you know, that I'll spend more time talking about in the future. But I do a with Cooley. I've done this running back thing which I'll say for Cooley on Thursday. But of the guys that are all sort of projected in that, you know, one through call it twenty five range right now. And we'll end up with three guys inside the twenty-five that weren't supposed to be there on Thursday night. But guys that the Redskins may or may not have a shot at, but but more likely than not could have a shot at my my favorite players in this draft in order Cuyler Marie to me is the most intriguing the most important position. And if I were in a position to draft Kyle Marie if if all the due diligence said, a lot of this stuff, Dan, Patrick interview is father being really involved and all that stuff is in a big deal. I would go for it. If I didn't have a quarterback. I would go for I would go for it. Again, the the personal stuff not being major red flags. They could be or the baseball. That's part of the personals. Yes, you're right. But he's really, you know, when you just think about watching him last year, and then you watch a lot of the the follow up tape. That's out there. Good. God is he is he gifted tell into me. He's Russell Wilson except even more dynamic it with a stronger arm. And if if you end up drafting Russell Wilson, it's not the third round. Like Wilson wasn't right. Doesn't twelve who cares. Where you get Russell Wilson. And Cuyler Murray could be better than Russell Wilson. I love Devon white at LSU. He's to me going to be a superstar NFL inside linebacker and the right system coached by the right guy. But it's going to be even that won't be able to stop his talent. He was a playmaker. Every time you turned LSU. John. And he just looks to me like a star in the making. I am less. Sure. About the other Devon Devon Bush. Devon, white to me is a superstar can't miss Devon Bush question marks more more question marks TJ Hawkins in the tight end. From Iowa is going to be a star player in the NFL. And by the way is not getting out by number ten nine or ten really Hawkins atop ten eighty maybe seven. I could see him dropping twelve maybe. But just because of teams are gonna be hesitant to take a tight in the top ten, but he absolutely could. But he's not going past twelve that's for sure on deceiving. Athletic ability in all around tight end. I'm not saying that like it's going to be gronk two point. Oh in terms of the talent. But he's big he's strong. He's got soft hands. He catches everything. And then basically drags people. After that TJ Hawkins going to be a store, perhaps the most talented defensive player in the draft. But I would not take him because this guy has a ton of red flags all over their their warning signs all over at Oliver. But at all over is the most talented interior defensive linemen in the draft from what are you talking about? So what the red flex? The Redskins are now running a boy stone talking about the Redskins. I'm just taking these are my the Redskins, and you've got a guy like that. You just put them on the Reuben foster program you can put up with foster program at this. But watch it at Oliver on tape. He's on block -able as an I mean to me he really does have next great interior defensive line. You know talent as more of a guide in. I'm not talking about a nose tackle. By the way. I'm talking about a D tackle I'm talking about in football terms. A three technique guy. Not in not in over the center guy, and he's not a D. And either if you've heard me talk about Montas sweat all year. I love Montas sweats talent, I think he'll be star. The problem is this heart condition it which is why apparently he is plummeting right now. God, I hope he's healthy. And I hope it's not a major risk if it's not in somebody takes him later. They may have gotten a steal of the draft. If this heart condition drops him from we're not taking a top ten pick and using it on him. It's too much risk. Remember the Jon Allen stuff? Jon Allen would have been a top five pick. If for the arthritic shoulder concerns in the Redskins benefited from that, you know, somebody may benefit from this heart stuff with Montas what I hope he's healthy from a pure leadership winner. You know added, you know, attitude teammate guy Christian Wilkins may be number one in this draft. And you can't go wrong. With the talent either. The Redskins can get them. Selves, a really good guard in this draft. And Chris Lindstrom would be their fifteen. I think he is the number one guard in this draft. He would st- he would start day one. Personally. I don't think you use number fifteen overall ARD when you're going to keep the good guard that they have Brandon sheriff. I don't know when that that that extensions coming. I have no idea. But Lindstrom is definitely a guy that if they were to take him at fifteen you shouldn't roll your eyes at that. He's a great player who will step in and start in. Oh, by the way, conveniently Philly major need for them offensively, by the way to more guys. I'm off of Brian burns as an edge rusher. He is flying up draft boards. I don't personally see it as much. He's two lanky almost too tall. Even though he is explosive. I don't want burns at fifteen but I would potentially at fifteen I would not. Have a problem. Although I'm sure people will say you can get this guy later in the first by trading back. But I would not have a problem if they drafted marquees Brown at fifteen overall, Charley Casserly, set it on Friday. He is a difference maker in the only difference maker wide receiver in this draft. Is another guy that you know, he he was injured. But if he's healthy, he's Sean Jackson. I personally think Paris Campbell has a lot of Sean Jackson is well, but if they take marquees Brown fifteen or somebody took him that high would never problem with it. All right. Go ahead. Have you backed up from your initial position awhile back saying that overall you just as soon see them do nothing quarterback Yelm, fine with them not doing any. Okay. So so that's that's still because because I wanted to blow up option, right? So I don't want them to reach for a quarterback. Now, they took will Greer in. You know, if they somewhere in the second round second. I'm not talking about second second round pick. Tommy is a pick in which people are going to say that's the quarterback. That's the guy. I think when you take him third round or later, even though you could end up with your starter, the idea going in is we really liked this guy. And we could see this guy be are being are started down the road, but he's not gonna come in and start right away. I mean second round guys here in previous years. I mean, Jay grooten had one and Andy Dalton I know, you know, could be perceived as a potential week one starter. So they took will Greer early in the second round with their second round pick. I think there would be some converse. Action about will Greer competing for the job. Not as much if they pick the quarterback at fifteen right? But I don't I I don't I I don't want them to reach for quarterback in a draft where you could get difference makers on defense at fifteen you get a difference maker and a wide receiver in marquees Williams and Markey's Brown excuse me at fifteen as well. Okay. And and again, I I mentioned this like if Chris Lindstrom were taken fifteen overall guard. I would not have a problem with that. He is a legitimate day one NFL starter at the position. Well, they got one Eric flowers. Right. I also think the two positions that they should solve an I expect them to solve or attempt to solve is safety there other safety position and wide receiver. I think that they will somehow in the first four rounds get a guy that can start at wide receiver and get a guy that can start at safety. And I'd be surprised if a safety and wide receiver aren't taken by the Redskins in their first four selections, which are the first round second round in two third rounds? So I would be surprised in those two third rounders the second round room, I render if a wide receiver and safety aren't taken because I would bet that when they get to the second third round that they'll have a safety and wide receiver that will be close enough to the top of their board where they would also be filling need, right. And you heard Doug Williams say one thing we need to go to wide receiver. Yeah. They need a playmaker. And they clearly need another safety, by the way. Did you see that tweet the other day from Landon Collins? We didn't talk about that. Did we about? Trying to get what's his name. Jalen Ramsey inland. Ramsey trying to recruit them. Yeah. Yeah. I saw that. So for those that missed it. Jalen Rams, Landon Collins new Redskin safety tweeted out the other day, and I'm looking for it now because I can't find it here. It is. It was I guess Saturday. He tweeted to Jalen Ramsey the Jacksonville corner. One of the best corners in the game. But a little bit nuts. If you in by the way, the setup for this is that Coughlan and others have been very critical of Jalen Ramsey and him speaking out and lots of other things not showing up fro TA's TA's. Landon Collins tweeted Jalen Ramsey as the newest Redskin if you don't wanna be on a team where your VP your vice president is all in the media all in your mentions talking about voluntary workouts and questioning your work. And come to the Redskins. Well, I don't one land first of all he is. He right now. I think he's under contract with Jack's. Yes land the Collins has been here for five minutes, five minutes. It's like, but by the way, it just shows his naievety because if you've been in the organization for well as you as you said with DJ swear, injure the real punishment would have been to make him stay not to cut him. It's like, you're not encouraging potential friends or existing French to actually come here. No landing cones hasn't been here long enough to realize that this is not like a lot better than where he was in New York. It's actually worse. But I'll tell you what. Jalen Ramsey, always been one of my favorite corners. I mean, I would love to see him here. Of course, you would. But but anyway, he he's once. Jalen ramsey. He's can you your corners? Norman ramsey. Yes. That'd be pretty good. Be having matching celebrations forever for every pass. They defended. What what did you had something else? Did you want to talk about Harper and Arrietta area going out Harper getting it? You know, what's interesting is talking about the nets losing last night. No, no. I don't wanna talk about that Ariana. I don't know if he still is, but he's a porous client or unless he quit bores. I'll have to see here. He may have quit Boerse put. He's a fellow force client or has been in the past unless I've missed it. I think he's still Scott Boras client, and it's very unusual for Boris clients to take shots at each other. Like, he did he took a real shot at basically, Bryce Harper. Not something Strasbourg ever did. No, no, no. He didn't all that's missing or the hand around its neck. Jonathan applebaum. Look they're gonna find out. He is exhausting. He is exhausting teammate. He is he he's annoying. He's not a bad teammate. But he's exhausting the be around and you'll have situations like this where he gets thrown out of a game. He had no business getting thrown out of he's gonna wind up. He could wind up being suspended. I his little outburst as as well. Can I just real quickly for those that MRs just read what Jake Arrieta said area was very critical of Harper getting ojected, by the way, if you've seen the video of Harper running out from the dugout he had already been tossed the empire tossed him. When he was you know, when he was yapping from from the dugout but area, you know, was was disappointed. And he said we need quote, we need him in right field. I don't care how bad the up is. I need him in right field. I need him at the plate. And he wasn't there. So that hurts he missing pitches. But. For both sides talking about the pyrite. If that's the case that happens on a nightly basis, usually the unpire is going to miss some calls. So what next pitch we've got a game to play. That's not gonna go over well with price faith, and you don't think so. Oh, no. Oh, no. No. No, no, no. That's not going to go over well with him. How will be he took a lot of the blame for two and he said can happen. You know in a game like that against the Mets division rival can't happen. I mean, I think sometimes now they have a team calm out like that. When he's trying to you know, win over the clubhouse and the fan base. And you've got their star pitcher, basically. Well, their second best pitcher, basically calling them out. No, no prices not gonna like that. Although Bryce Bryce did the same thing to pop up on when he hit Manny Machado with a pitch basically hung out to dry after the game right for doing it. And that's what led to the whole thing. So they're gonna find like he's a lot like Reggie. Without the World Series championships. He's he's he's he's got a big ego. He's a he can be great players not Reggie's a lot like Reggie that. He saw big of an ego. Not as big as Reggie, but I need was outsized all time out. So I mean exhausting as teammates be around the understand what I'm saying people are exhaust. I've worked with somebody over the year. Very annoying time. So that's who he is. He's not necessarily a bad guy with they're going to find that out. They lost last night to in their first game out in Colorado. But that's win tonight. So it'll be five hundred five hundred. All right. Did you have anything? I do. I got a couple of things here. Go for it. Okay. First of all I wanted to remind you that starting Monday for two weeks. I'm going to my homeland. I know I'm going to Italy for two weeks. The first time back in the homeland. I've already hooked up with a relative and talion relative. That had. No, I had we've been, you know, messaging other back and forth to see where in in. Groom. Oh, it's a town. Little town about twenty kilometers from Bari Bari is a city on the. So we've got to spend a few days there few days, Rome and a few days in Florence. So I'm really getting psyched up about that. And I'll do a scouting mission of the Coliseum and tell you, you know, how compares to dance nights Redskins. I was there last summer where really it was in Italy last summer and went and went to the calcium. And it really is all that stuff. You know? I can't believe they win the country. Why that's a hard to belief. Yeah. The other thing is what what you're going to Rome, obviously going to forints. Yes. Florence's awesome. Yes. That that was a fun part of the trip. Yeah. Going that's where we were for big part of it or just a few as you would say kilometers. Should I jog your name anywhere? No. You probably don't wanna do that. I don't think I don't think I made my Mark. But drank a lot of wine. We did that last. So yeah, I'm looking forward a lot of one and brought a lot of it back with us. Good for you. Also to one more reminder Thursday may sixteenth six eight PM at Shelley's backroom might mighty see gray cigars and curb curveballs fundraiser to help nonprofit baseball organization that helps intercity kids play baseball in DC for seventy five dollar ticket donation, you get three cigars you get appetizers.

And even Kevin Sheehan has shown up before. I am going to show up again this year. So there in may sixteen again, if you wanna find out more get tickets, contact me on Twitter at Tom Lavera. You can find me on Facebook or Email me at Tom Lavera at Yahoo dot com. All right. The only other thing I was going to mention were the two NBA games last night. I didn't. The the bucks. The books are really entertaining to while. They are they're very entertaining to watch. And I personally think that Toronto can beat them in a best seven and will the way Boston destroyed Indiana. Now that becomes a really interesting series Milwaukee Boston here in the next around. I just don't the NBA's all about earning. It you know, you don't go right to the NBA finals. Now, you it's a league that really takes a couple of years to get that playoff experience because it really is a completely different game than a regular season NBA game. And then last night. I I actually watched much more of his I watched the caps game which was on during books bucks pistons. But I did watch Houston Utah last night there couple places in the NBA that in and I know Green Bay's the example in the NFL, but the small market teams in the NBA Tommy like in Salt Lake City is a small. All market. Oklahoma City is small marketing. Orlen in the triple a city. Yeah. It's a AAA city. It's amazing. The way those crowds show up, and they are ready for these NBA games, especially you know, last night in Utah. They're down three nothing in the series. A series is over nobody. I think it's over a hundred and thirty four some coming from three three nothing down. And that place was lit up, Utah has had one of the more criticized fan basis for opposing players terms of bulgar, language and rape personal attacks in racial. Yes. Taunts at cetera. But my God. I mean can do you ever see in a big city New York, Boston DC, Chicago? Do you ever see everybody put the t shirt on wherever you know? It's a in Oklahoma City. They they've all got the turquoise on you know, on whatever night or the orange night d ever see that in a bigger city. Saw zing. We see. Hockey, I saw with with the wizards one year and the Gilbert air because there was one guy who wouldn't put his tee shirt on who they kept putting the camera on really trying to shame him. I don't know put into shirt on look there's a difference between the majority of people putting the t shirt on and everybody putting the t shirt on. This was everybody. You couldn't find anybody in that Utah crowd. That didn't have the white t shirt on for Lassie found the one guy in this wizards playoff game. And they harass them the whole night. I think it's one of the unique things about the NBA that they have these smaller market teams where you know, Utah has the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City. They don't have -cremento anything else Sacramento that the same thing Portland the same Antonio Homa city the same thing San Antonio got. Yeah. The same thing we're talking minor league. Baseball cities is what we're talking about here. Remember back when Portland Phoenix were essentially, the only two I mean, Utah Salt Lake City the the New Orleans jazz move who Utah Salt Lake in the late seventies. I forget something like that. But in the early to mid seventies late seventies. It was Portland Phoenix in every single one of their games was sold out. Oh, yeah. Every single regular season. They were good. They had some good teams. They were good. Yeah. The Phoenix teams were good. And then Portland had a really good run where you know, they they actually want it where they they got to the finals they lost to Detroit and Chicago, right? They got to the NBA finals before when Portland mass stretch in the early nineties. Oh, yeah. We'll Walt the team wanted and seventy seven right. Yeah. And then probably would have one more had Walton not gotten hurt. Yes. And the Phoenix teams, which you recall, and I think you played against some of these teams with Westfall. And so yeah. Alvin Adam all just went into into Basketball, Hall fame, Diddy. I'm still waiting for my call anyway, both. Games. Last night were were blow outs tonight. You get a quadruple header tonight with you know, two three close out opportunities. And then the only series in the NBA aid that got two to two in that San Antonio and Denver make sure you watch. Because if you don't they're going to have to hold a bake sale for the networks because the ratings are so bad. They are terrible. Aren't they? I haven't seen the numbers, I'm assuming they're terrible. Because I saw was down twenty six percent. You know, a lot of times, you know, your your personal anecdotal sometimes is reflective of in with me in the NBA. I've got friends that when they are watching. I know the NBA's got really good ratings. And when you go to have a conversation with them like in the last week, and they I haven't watched any games. I guarantee you the ratings are off they have to be without LeBron. Yes. Yeah. Especially in the early round. I was LeBron doing, but I think I think this is more than LeBron. I mean, we're gonna get we're gonna get some decent. I mean, we're going to get huge. Sten Golden State here over the next two weeks. That's coming up. I think Milwaukee Boston is interesting. I think Philly Toronto could be interesting a Portland, Denver Portland. San Antonio is probably not going to draw big crowd. All right. That's it. I'm done with you.

Hour 1: American Hero, Steph Curry?

"The Dan Le Batard Woodstock Gotcha podcast is brought to you by the capital one's ever card or four percent cashback on dining and entertainment do percent grocery stores of one percent on all of the purchases now when you go out you can't Jim what's in your wallet terms apply. This is the Dan Lebatardshow with these two guys podcast. This is what I'm vowing to you. America okay if this show does a segment on whether or not Eli Manning a Hall Hall of Famer Yankus off the air today. This show does a segment today on is Eli Manning a hall of Famer Billing Elliot. I'm telling the audit you'd better not come in here. Lose all our jobs because I see you getting ready to get into the microphone because you WanNa have the ally. Manning is a hall of Famer Conversation. I'm telling you if you lead me there. I'M GONNA walk out and not come back to work. Do you know how this morning started or one of the things that happened this morning in preparation of this show you don't I'll tell you what happened. STUGATZ SANITEX to all of us. Hey think might be a good idea to have a roundtable with a bunch of us as to whether or not you as a hall of Famer. He's never learned from anything we do on this show billy. He doesn't learn he always the moment gillibrand the moment. Something terrible happens to me. He will go right back to doing that show. It's just a real safe space for him. He will take off his court jester hat. Throw it in the corner. You'll hear the jingling bells old and then he will do is Eli Manning. A Hall of Famer is it. I want to ask the rest of you because it's GonNa go sit outside for two minutes. They shouldn't have done it. Thanks to what I want to ask you guys this as Steph curry here who has as pristine an image as can be had I think in sports today okay because we are in the private lives of these athletes more than we've ever been and tiger woods once upon a time had that Buick commercial reputation and then it all unraveled when you know with the infidelity but even at home steph curry seems sort of the model for old mm fashioned stuff everything he gives off is pristine everything he associates himself with you might call him corning because you prefer Jalen Ramsey type or an Alan Iverson typer somebody who's not giving off that kind of wholesome but he's giving wholesome in every way great relationship with his his family with his parents doing the PUTT Putt Golf. ABC thing every project involves himself with is stamped with the right stuff donating to Howard the university to keep their Gulf program alive and here he comes American hero who isn't applauding today to hear that after finishing in Damn seventh place at this tournament that none of us cared about except to accept the shame of coming in seventh place here comes steph curry with the perfect perfect international game the perfect international game to rescue us by being simply a whole lot better than Kemba Walker seriously like what a great spot for him to. I thought it was over with Paul George. I thought our dominance is Americans was over when Paul George snapped his leg and that none of these big guys ever ever again will be a part of it now that these guys come in seventh place that even the Jalen Brown and the and the Kemba walkers and the Mason plumlee wouldn't want to be involved oft with the shame so basically he's coming in as big savior. That's right with like the halo with these Tim Tebow. He's not just bringing. He is not just bringing the excellent. May you know he's better than anybody. WHO's out there? He's also bringing the purity. He's GonNa make it and I know what's the worst thing he does. He's arrogant when he plays that I've been trying to jump in with that for a while like you say he's this wholesome guy. I just for the last few years ever since they started winning. I just get this feeling think of arrogance and it's not anything he says when he talks to the media. He's very friendly very respectful but it's just like you said on the court ever since he just. I don't like that arrogance. I've always has been a little turned off by him. Well let me ask you this question because you're making the window of perfection very small understanding that will end up finding flaws with all these guys but usually when the guy behaves impeccably on the court and is otherwise perfect on the court will then go searching through his family life and his marriage and what is his advertising campaign and we'll search through the other stuff to find the stuff that we you can find is sort of a jerk. The only thing you can find that he knows threes are going in sometimes before the rest of us. I happen to think that's very cool. I happen to think that knocks out some of his corny the fact that he plays with arrogance because he knows how good he is. What's wrong with you guys or back America's back in and international basketball scene now that we went anywhere or seven? We took this to turn it off okay. I don't wanNA sound like an arrogant American. We took the tournament but we're back. We're not going anywhere. Dan and Steph is back and guess what he's GonNa. Bring his friends with him. I don't know if you know this yet but we can already put down. I'M GONNA put it right now. K D's GonNa play in the Olympics. lebrons Lebron's going to play in the Olympics these a friend Paul coming back and he steps back. He's never played for team. USA He's back. We're back America's back back. Katie is going to be on that team. You know why because he does not want us going to have more rings than Katya right but he doesn't want him to have more gold medals than he has. Does he have any gold medals. He doesn't want to have have more gold medals than he has and you guys just prefer that the warriors go for us. I feel like Lebron is going to be like none of Steph doesn't get to do this. I'm GonNa play at the Twenty Twenty Olympics. This isn't your team Steph. It's still my team did it. I though which do you think would have the better chance an all star team around on staff with whichever guys are willing to go or just the warriors when you assume the warriors I mean international rules. Do everything up. I'll start teams are fun though you don't want an all star team Dan well. We don't have one right now. This is such a good no we do. I told you lebrons GonNa be there encaged. He's going to be they're also here's the good thing about what Steph did Steph. Now is the hero no no matter who else joins this team Steph pave the way because he was the first one to come in and say you know what I'm GonNa do this for my country and now everybody else that does it looks like they're just following. Step Alison Listen. Why are you laughing at him? What are you laugh your face because he looks so aggravated when you're looking at him you just I see your thoughts Dan? It's the text message over your head. I'm glad that we got to this because I was thinking last night. When I heard the news and I started making a list mentally I didn't write it down but I started making lists? Hopefully remember them your sports sports bucket list of accomplishments and how high in Olympic gold medal is on that list. I think an Olympic gold medal probably top three easy easy probably top three put it on the poll at Lebatardshow what an Olympic gold medal be at the top of the top three on the list of achievement for a professional professional athletes. It can't be that high. Get it like. I don't even remember if K. D. has won this Kevin durant heavy gold medal. I don't think he does but I'm not certain but I would know if he wanted championship which he has it well mellow one one and it didn't keep him from being a laughing stock eaten up to one. He won a couple. He's he's our most decker laughingstock Carmello. Anthony is our most decorated American basketball champion. Kevin Durant has two Olympic gold medals none in Stugatz his personal record. That's the reason that he can't keep track because you just refuses to give championships. I look forward to Alison spending the day a reading my thoughts lots and mocking billy because the reason I was looking at billy annoyed is just because he started the show off scared of the strangest thing which is he sat and Mike's Chair Mike out sick and he he said upon sitting down. I'm going to get sick now aren't I because he's afraid of things that are unseen. I mean I'm talking to say microphone. I'm sitting on the same chair and now my tummy starting to bother me. I think it started Stugatz here. Hiring can be a challenge as Kodak co-founder Gretchen. He discovered Gretchen need to hire hire a gay martyrs for her education company.

When you say suspected shoplifter dragon entire six pack of beer inside a target dressing room officers say that the woman took her car and a six pack of Stella or towing stugatz pronounce that I just called Stellar I will Roy? What did I say Stellan Nice Little Stella Glass? That's what I said. What what is he gets the name right Stella Artois just say Stella toward it you asked ask Stella artois would have punched in the face very good artois Stella? This is the Dan Le Batard show with two guys on ESPN radio. Do you think it's possible to have more of a generational and cultural gap between the managed and the managers there is between Tom Coughlin Doug marrone and Jalen Ramsey. Nope you think it's possible for there to be cultural. Generational differences is between people that are trying to work together and one of them believes in the idea that if your five minutes in its early you're five minutes late right. Arriving on time isn't arriving on time. According to Tom Coughlin. He had a rule for all his champions that you had. He's a military guy. Arrive Arrive Five minutes early and Jalen may arrived five minutes early but he's going to do it with a hype man brings truck and so the the thing I want to ask you is everything falls apart here with the jags because I find fascinating how all of this player empowerment in in football has made its way basketball has made its way in to football where we told you somebody recently Julio Jones got not so much guaranteed money this offseason by threatening not to play in the first game quietly the first week of the season that Julio Julio Jones is twentieth twenty-first on the list of NBA players right and the money they got this off season behind Bogdonovich so Leo Jones got all this money but these looking and saying himself there were twenty players including Bogdonovich who got more money than me in basketball you're seeing player empowerment sort of leak into football where the contracts don't mean much and they're one sided and it looks like Jalen Ramsey. MC is going to be able to get out of Jacksonville at least in part because yesterday he went public with a press conference saying hey I didn't leak my trade demand. I tried not to make it a distraction attraction. They made it a distraction like they say a distraction. I tried to do it the right way. I tried to do it privately and so now he makes it a mess publicly and the thing I want to ask you guys about is did you see Steve Young's criticism of this Steve Young who has been doing a great job for our network for a long time and was once he started winning championships was seen as a pillar of professionalism before that he was is not quite seen as a pillar of professionalism because of doing things like Jalen Ramsey so here is what we have from Steve Young and I I really do wonder I'd love to talk to Steve About this alison if we can get him on I'd love to talk to him about the inherent hypocrisy and difficulty in commenting on things like this when you yourself have done things like this to be critical of it now as an adult unless maybe regretful of having done so as a young person but Steve of young absolutely did this stuff very bad messenger on this. Let's listen to the sound and it's now the NBA. I think obviously Tony Brown food but he said the Patriots just act that way in the end up with the Patriots and look what the Dolphins did lose a game the first game like calm Asian. I want to hear this is the NBA now and for an office the NFL got the deal the fact that they get into all that guy's going to demand a trade. He's a big name. What are you gonNA do about it? So there was a trade of Steve Young from Tampa Saint Louis it was finished Lee Steinberg every the calls were made and Steve Young threatened to retire retire if he was traded immediately called the owner to complain. So how does it work. You're allowed to demand to not be traded is that is that okay. You can't demand to be traded but you're allowed to demand and not to be trade. That's perfectly fine. Yes stay with your team demand. You not to be drained and I'M GONNA sit right here. I'm going to ride it out with guys Yup ultimate team guy. I'm not gonNA leave you want me to leave. Steve Young said a wrote in his book not said wrote in His book that when Hugh Culverhouse the owner of the bucks answered the phone Steve Young and didn't even give him a chance to say hello so that's and again. I will say that Steve Young I ah most people would tell you maybe not Joe Montana but most people would tell you that Steve Young's entire career broadcasting and otherwise has been pretty damn impeccable passable but it is curious. I and I think Steve Young is one of the smart guys I wonder what the distinction is. He's making does he feel that Jalen Ramsey is quitting and when all it is is arrested for power on being able to dictate your own terms. It's not very much different from what Steve Young was doing right getting to the forty niners getting into a better situation even though he was backing up Joe Montana but it was a better team and he was eventually going to take over that situation and maybe the distinction is Jalen. You're there. You've signed a contract. Take your part of the team two weeks in you got a little scuffle with the coach like that's the time you're GONNA ask for a trade ride the season out I don't know and maybe he does have some. Are you buying lying all of that. No I mean who agree who are you. Who are you siding with on this? Not You just the audience who who are you guys citing. All the audience will always side with. Hey Jalen. Stay put shut up play football but know what I'm saying is when I present to you all of the facts I just presented to you. Who are you siding with their Steve Young telling Jalen Ramsey? Hey Don't do the thing I did or Jalen Ramsey trying to do the thing that Steve Young successfully did but it's possible that Steve Young looks back at an regrets the way he hit is certain things like people aren't the same when they're correct says they are when they're gone shouldn't have said you know what I shouldn't have said hypocrisy. I should've said inconsistency because there may be an explanation for this. I just don't have it. Steve Young's the only one that that knows and can say whether or not looking into a mirror he was being self aware in that spot with his regrets or wasn't being self aware wouldn't he offer that up as he's talking about Jalen Ramsey Z. though like hey I went through this I did this. I regret it. I don't know I don't know how self aware he is about this stuff they're bad messengers all the time on things and we love pointing running out inconsistencies and as I said hypocrisies like we love. It's a lot of fun to do that. The he doesn't have Steve Young's opinion on this. This is the opinion of a whole lot of people on this. This isn't a controversial opinion. I just feel like he's not allowed to have it unless he's got his regrets. That's the best part about this if he says you know what I regret doing it you're like wow super credible. He's been through this and if he doesn't take it like what does this guy that's correct. I love their roles to this. What what has this is great? The Messenger is terrible and there are rules. I love that you've made you want to remain some semblance of consistent consistency might not matter to you and maybe it certainly doesn't matter to you if he has regrets though he's the greatest messenger imaginable pretty good met learn from my lessons young man yes it is really swing through Steve Young Favor Ridley if he wants to call in and explain himself with a great deal of regret spontaneous for some ads also in his book. I was looking up some stuff during that segment I learned that An. NFL REFEREE WANTS ASK Steve Young during a game. If you would go on a date with the rest daughter it's true true story as everyone. Everyone wanted their kid to marry Steve Young back. Did he go on the date. I don't know let me see. I don't know the rules of the Mormon religion exactly but I think Steve Young could have married many of them. Mary married all the women that wanted to marry Donlevatar. Is there anyone surge who refers to you by your full name. No no no no. Can you tell the audience what your full name. Is You BECCA search and join a Stugatz. Is it your full name. Ten words surge Abul Lamu signed on that's not true. That's not my name okay. I'm sorry I made that so awkward for you. Hell of a day we're. DC donlevatar show with two guys phony spam radio ESPN radio is presented by Progressive Insurance guests on the Dan Lebatardshow appear via the Shell Pennzoil performance line. Prep your engine for winter injure with Pennzoil Synthetic Motor Oil the first mortar oil made from natural gas crude oil. The proof is in the pennzoil. Here's your sportscenter update.

How many people have played with that name is such rhetorical trick? That's got us there. Make Baseball soaked in nostalgia. The first named person named Stransky to hit a home run at fenway parks is his GRANDPA A car was there red sox fans and they love yes. I mean they gave him a standing ovation and opposing player pretty goal. What are the game had stakes attached asu though boom they would not be reasonable about those fans Gavin busy Jio they just fired them browns and those fans browsing won the world series the last time it was played? This is fun though you're Stransky's in busy os into teases now did you see. Did you see what happened here. With what what is the name of visuals kid is at Coven or Kevin Ah Kevin I dunno he and Craig Biggio Craig Michio and his son or I'm sorry that's next story okay now. Why did you say it? I was just going to go to the I'm it. Just go ahead and do it on you didn't do it. I'd like to hear from you. I'd like you to mispronounce the name instead of me for the cycle and the Blue Jays win over the orioles two have ended his father Craig are now the second father son duo to hit for the cycle joining Gary and Darryl Ward That's a stunner the immortal Gary Darrell Ward. I thought it was GONNA be the Griffey's how could it be the immortal Gary and Darryl Ward the award filling find me some numbers on Gary Darrell Ward so that I can found ignorant because I don't know my early sixties baseball and finally Miami Gardens police say that thieves stole up to eighty thousand dollars in merchandise from a wig warehouse for all the latest headlines and information tune in sports that are on ESPN radio all throughout the day Miami man so you may have noticed during that segment and many segments maybe all the segments that that we do that we are not to be trusted. We are slippery sloppy and so if you're just joining us a couple of days ago Adam Vinatieri was clearly according to this radio show going to retire because we just made that obvious he's missed a bunch of cakes this season he told reporters there's I'm not talking today. I'll talk on Monday. Reporters reminded him. Hey we don't have any availability. Money's like you will hear from me on Monday and we all jumped to the conclusion at forty six year old Adam Viteri was retiring. We stated it as fact and I was on Golic and Wingo that morning. They asked me to summarise his career. They asked me for perspective and capitalizing capsulize Adam vinatieri career. I can't even pronounce his yes go ahead and pronounce correctly while making us understand his historic impact over a quarter century of GIG football but here is Adam Vinnie Terry sorry here's Adam Viteri he is. He is rebutting our report. He he does not agree with our report from earlier this week retirement. We never thought of nationalism no that was that was one of those situations that I was walking out of locker room you talking to me and quite frank for two decades. We've always had been locker rooms on a Monday and granted. Our schedule has changed now as last year so when I walked out said I'll talk on Monday. Just I just needed a little bit more time. I'M GONNA wear a lot of this week to it. Does demons clearheaded in so I want you to hear how quickly at Vigna Terry how quickly he answered the front part of that question just to put an end to all irresponsible speculation that Adam venit terry was clearly going to retire awesome. Let him finish the question so we retired him and he never even thought about it. That's correct never even considered considered Darrell Ward had a negative four point four war for his career average at five hundred eighty eight hits four of them that one magical game where he had a cycle father so proud the immortal Gary Ward Gary also negative for point for ward. No no gary ward seventeen point seven career low hall of fame or anything as good player all right. Thank you to uh-huh here's some good sound. He's a good player you to seventy six. It's amazing that you know that the top of your head is this fun by the way with baseball players kids because the blue jays horrible. They're like thirty games under five hundred they have how much of that Ninety sperm do they have on their roster will they have bob is shit. That's one of them so they have Dante son while they've got Vladimir. Guerrero skid as well right yeah so they got bit. There's not a forth on there. They've got GEOS kids their fourth blue Jay that has resulted from a romantic encounter in the nineties between another blue Jay a actually it's not they're not all blue jays then that would be even weirder shut never played for the Blue Jays and neither did Vladimir Guerrero actually neither it neither did Craig Biggio Blue Jays the Blue Jay just collect players from the ninety million a smoke monster on their team Justin smoak. That's where he has a dad. Dad is what you said. It needs to be a dad who played in the major league. I'm pretty sure that the Blue Jays I'm pretty sure that I could say this is a fact that all of them had dead. I could see that some of them may have been home. Some of them may not have been home but they were all there that one day you sure they also have a maguire but it's not not health. Here's some dominic foxworth sound dominic. Coming Foxworth had very strong opinions here and we're going to hear from Dominic Foxworth later in the show on something but let's hear from Dominic Foxworth. It's worth he just said the Miami. Dolphins are are an embarrassment. He considers unethical if unethical and morally reprehensible as far as I'm concerned because we understand how dangerous football is as a game putting guys out there in this type of danger is a problem but you can put that aside I think as an employer you have an obligation obligation to provide a safe working environment as you can and also provide the people an opportunity to succeed these young men have committed their lives to get into the NFL NFL and the expectation is once you get to the NFL the team will do the very best that they can do to make sure you succeed. They are not doing this there and that's not fair because these guys is are physically paying the price. These guys are putting bad film on tape because they're not trying to win and it's going to shorten their careers and you know who's going to benefit from the owner general managers and maybe the potential future coach these guys aren't going to from it. They're going to be out of the league having their careers ruined by selfish team like the Dolphin. He's angry yeah he is. I get what he's saying that. The employer has an obligation to keep their employees safe but isn't sports a little different and football. You're you're signing up for a dangerous sport so that's like I get everything he's saying saying like comparing it to other jobs like you're supposed to keep your employees safe but in football like you're signing up like I know that sounds like heartless but they're signing up for unsafe but they do have a responsibility to keep it as safe as they can and ethical responsibility to keep it as safe as they can. That's that's been the culture change that we've had throughout that sport four but I thought the second point was the more relevant one that your directly impacting the people on that team's ability to earn a living because other people aren't going to believe you can play when you can't show it on this team. There's no one on this team who can show that there any good but you don't know that right now. Now I am talking to an audience that simply cannot tell me whether the Miami Dolphins have one or two above average players but wouldn't the people valuating waiting athletes like the other teams. No this guy's someone that can play. He's just in a bad spot here like for the average fans you can say. I don't know if these players are good or not but there's no yeah the people evaluating valuating talent should know like Christian Wilkins the rookie Lineman for the dolphins like he has his one on one matchup. If he's successful in that matchup like I feel like teams was it's like I get billy's point. Fans aren't really gonNA notice this feel like the people that dissect this stuff will be able to tell there's also a bunch of guys in that team getting an operative there getting paid and getting an opportunity -tunities showcase their talents I mean guys who may be would not be playing for an NFL team. They have a lot of guys on their roster like the Tar. I'm GONNA eat my wings with blue cheese and a lot of it and I'm going to come in here with blue cheese on my face and a couple of Napkins to bed. Stop complaining about Stugatz. No one told you you can't eat wings. You decided that on your own that's a you choice not to meet choice was a Richarson US choice. We've beaten wings everyday. We'd both have Louis beat slathered and blue cheese but the U. N. slapped on each other. That's my dream. BCC Donlevatar Dan Le Batard show with as two guys on ESPN radio happy four hundred and sixty seventh birthday to Rick Pitino no happy birthday to him care good luck that young I want to get into what Jack del Rio has said here billy's very excited about this because Jack del Rio evidently. I don't know whether it's the official or unofficial but he is made is all bad body language. Wait a minute. What's happening here? I'm I'm sorry. Will you really wanted to get into Jack. Del Rio's all bad body language team. I'm sorry we stop everything. I don't believe Chuck Solitaire Torpedo. The follow follow torpedo has ever lost when it makes an appearance. We have to stop doing because at the bottom of our ship here at ship. I said Chuck Solitaire. The last remaining journalist is firing off a content for all of the gas bags and he is. What are you laughing about adding back? They're angry with the red light ago submarine Alison. Why don't you understand our show Alex Hardy the visit what do you mean? Why is he in a red light glaring because we're in a summary trying to connote? You know what that sound yeah. I didn't realize Alison listen. How can you not tell we're sinking? How can you not tell that I now now but this is the sinking Zach this is? We're going down all of us together with a red light and billy space so the Chuck Salvator Piano. What is the news item that Chuck Salvatore has fired into the ocean of ESPN content? You know what I'm glad yeah because I was thinking about this last night. the question is and I was wondering to myself are we allowed to wonder it and we'll tell and more beat the Dak Prescott what norv Turner was Detroi- Aikman and I was thinking about that last night but I didn't feel good about thinking about it because I'm not certain I should be thinking about it but I got news. Someone wrote a story that said it's okay to wonder Oh really yes really so who gave out how it anymore. You have yeah permission to one wait a minute who gave us permission what is it they were allowed to wonder now we've been given official wondering ability by both Challah Toro and who wrote that story that Chuck Chuck Solid Torus wasting our time with this is the Dallas News is gene jocks Taylor and Jean. Jacques Taylor says it's okay to wonder now if Kelly Moore can beat a Dak Prescott what North Turner was to Troy Aikman Goat. I wonder now I need to see more about two to three more wins before I can start wondering against better. The fence is in Washington the giants but you have jeans permission thing s and Chuck and Chuck's. I refuse it. No that's. He has endorsement right there. You can't refuse go sit in the penalty box. You can't refuse that that is what do you mean. The solid torpedo has never lost. This is the news item of Oh terribly boring boring Wednesday you're allowed to this is the time to wonder even new troy. Aikman had twenty touchdown passes in a season once in his career career. It means if you were thinking about it. If you were wondering about it you could it until Jean. Jaques Taylor said you could okay but what I don't understand is. What does that mean? They can turned back Prescott into a quarterback throws fewer touchdowns than he does now to the next grade talk. I'm going back. I'm pretty sure that Prescott had more touchdown. Touchdown passes one of the last two seasons than Troy Aikman ever had in his season. Am I right or wrong. All you have to be right about that. I think wondering the wrong way is not a time to be right or wrong. It's time to wonder okay fair enough part of wonder is it not to put down who's right or wrong and just wonder in fact being right or wrong as anti antithetical wondering like for what are we looking for. The areas always always there for me. What are we looking for their DAK attack at twenty two touchdown passes that is his twenty three? That's his career going to be important because that that one touch might be important because what is Troy Aikman's career career high for touchdown passes in a season three. Oh well wonder able really made him as good God. He's already made him is good. He's at three seasons of twenty. Two or more aikman only had one season with twenty three better. He's already already better. We're not at that point yet. We're not wondering if as good we're not wondering better all right. We'll see

A late addition of out front next twenty one people on a cruise ship off the coast of San Francisco Test Positive Corona virus. So what happens now to the more than three thousand? Four hundred people stuck on board plus a third Washingtonian Washington State Elderly Care Facility. Now has an infected patient a third facility so bad is the outbreak in the Seattle area and Mick. Mulvaney is out trump announcing a new and very loyal chief of staff. Let's go out front and good evening. I'm Erin Burnett tonight. A Late Edition of out front the Corona virus crisis. We're GONNA take an in-depth look what's going on and how. The trump administration is handling. Its response and Dr Sanjay. Gupta is going to be Joining us for the entire hour it tonight. You Know Sanjay. We've been dealing with twenty one new cases on a cruise ship off the coast of San Francisco the grand princess and almost all of the cases. Nineteen hundred twenty one crew members which raises serious questions. About how many people they interacted with all in though only forty six people out of the thirty four hundred people on board have been tested so the number of positives obviously could go up now. Remember on the last cruise ship with Chris. The diamond princess at one time. It was the second biggest center of Corona Virus China so that went from what one or two cases to eventually ballooning more than six hundred on that cruise ship and what is truly shocking about the developments on the grand. Princess is that the passengers crew and captain were not told by the government about the positive results on board. They found out from watching vice president. Mike Pence on live national television. Here's the captain of the Grand Princess. Boys President Mike Pence twins. You old people of test imposed all over nineteen. You may have on us by the media. Rain we apologize. We don't give the advice not so nice but he was federal so since the vice president announced it was corona virus onboard the ship to the entire nation before telling ship did he also announce the plan for testing quarantining. And you know those important things which took twenty eight days for the last cruise ship in this position. Now we're working literally hour by hour with the Department of Defense is true truly evolving right now. Hour by hour truly evolving brief. You when you know is the bottom line in other words. They don't seem to know yet. The only person who has made his view on what to do with the thirty four hundred people on board the grandparents S is president trump. And we're up to me. I would be inclined to say. Leave everybody on the ship for a period of time and you use the ship as your base. I like the numbers being where they are. I don't need to have the numbers double because of one ship. That was it our fault. Leave people on the ship because when they come on land they will count in his mind in the US count. You know on his tally which he doesn't want that count. Though has been growing throughout the day twelve hours ago. Two hundred thirty cases in twenty states now three hundred four and twenty eight. Lucy caffeinated is out front and San Francisco. Solic- What are you hearing tonight about the passengers on that cruise ship where you are in San Francisco? Aaron there is so much shock so much confusion. On board. The Grand Prince's the passengers were hoping today's announcement would mean the end of their ordeal and said it looks like the start of a new one. The big question now. What will be the fate of the thirty four hundred people on board that ship? The vice president says it's going to be taken to a noncommercial. Port unclear what that means unclear when that will happen or where this will be located. We know that the eleven hundred or so members of the crew will not be allowed to disembark. They'll have to stay in quarantine on that ship. Every single other person will get tested. The crew will all get tested as well and it seems the passengers may get taken to military bases but again looks at the administration is working on these plans as we speak. We simply don't know where they will be taken to. People will be quarantined as needed. That's what the vice president said a terrifying prospect for a lot of these passengers. This is a vulnerable population of people. A lot of them in their sixties seventies and eighties. We've been in touch with several folks on board that ship. They said that they've been confined to their rooms. Glued to the news. That's where they seem to be getting most of their information they've been given activity. Kids passenger sent us a photo of a button dazzling bag kit that she got. That's how she could pass her time while she's trying to figure out if she's going to be quarantined for fourteen days are not another passenger posting on facebook earlier and I quote put all of us at the trump properties since he doesn't believe there's any serious danger. A bit of levity perhaps amidst a lot of confusion Aaron all right. Thank you very much and I wanna go out front now. To Americans quarantined. On Grand Princess Kaley Higgins ought and her mother Leeann Higgins and both of you. Thank you You know smiling and look Kudos to you for being able to do that. This has been a really difficult day. I can only imagine I mean Kelly. How did you and your mom find out about the cases of corona virus on the ship. Yeah so person in the balcony next to US told us to watch news so we turn on the TV and watch the vice president. Tell us The captain didn't say anything so until thirty minutes later and it was. I was so shocked. I didn't I couldn't believe it. I mean Liam went. Went through your mind when you heard the news. I mean I don't WanNa put feelings on the captain. He seemed to me to be a little bit. Make it clear. They didn't tell him it wasn't holding anything back from you He seemed a little Per Perturbed by that What went through your mind when you found out I just I. I felt so bad for everyone on the ship including the South It came as the big shock. We we really didn't think that we would have been affected Even when we had I found out the news on Wednesday about the data From the previous ship we still were pretty optimistic and It was pretty much business as usual on the ship. 'em So it it's been a to use to so when you hear a noncommercial port and you hear them say we're working on it. Which of course they are but they they obviously have not come up with a formal plan. Have you gotten any update any any information at all from anybody about what's next and then the captain or anyone on the ship is told us so so? I don't know yeah we were kind of blindsided here. What are you worried about Kaley for me? I'm most worried about missing more school and I'm worried about everyone on board I. It's such a hard thing with all the older folks on board and all the crew members. It's it's so scary. It's just I think I'm healthy enough to be okay but just everyone else. It's terrible I mean Leeann. We can only hope they come up with a plan here. Where you you know. It's a fourteen day process obviously for the other ship It was not handled well and hopefully everyone has learned from that right but you know I talked to a passenger the other day and she's fine now but I mean it was a twenty eight day saga And as I say. I think nobody expects anything that would be just just. No one expects anything like that to happen happen to you all. But what is your biggest fear I think the biggest fear is that even if there is a dish additional quarantine that like when we go back into the regular population like to our jobs to Kaley squall What kind additional measures might be taken and without prolonged are getting back into our normal lives right? I mean sort of just as the stigma. Help people would treat. You is what you're saying. Yeah yeah all right. Well thank you both very much You know a good good good. Good luck to you and you know. We're we're rooting for you. Think you are right and I want to You Know Sanjay as as as you hear their story I mean this is. This is unprecedented situation. I mean there's just they have no idea. No one's telling them anything. I mean we would have thought we would have learned from what happened on the diamond princess. Quarantining people on a ship is a bad idea. I think everyone sort of realized that cruise ships and he says if he had it his way he would keep on because he doesn't want the count to go up. It's it's a terrible idea. I mean the problem is that even outside of a crow virus outbreak. These viruses spread on ships. You know the norovirus People forget about the norovirus. Because he's been talking about Corona virus so much twenty percent of the people on that diamond cruise ship that Diamond Princess cruise ship. They got infected and there were people who died you know so. It's it's very hard and keep in mind you have to have a crew and the crew is then walking around the ship. They're trying to take care of people there in many ways you know. They're putting themselves at risk knowingly. In order to service the passengers there are often times You know they're they're in similar quarters. They're they're close close by to each other so eating together all of that so it's like they kind of know they're going to get infected nineteen of the twenty one that has you know our. Yeah and when you know. We've you know anyone who's seen cruise ship shore if you go on. The diamond print the princess a website for crew. They right up front. Say it you're going to be sharing quarters with. I mean the crew. The passengers have the space on ship. The crew are in tight quarters. They are together. They're sharing a lot of things. It's impossible really to keep them safe. So I mean I I. I hope that they're listening. Hope that the there's lessons that have been taken from the diamond because the folks that are on this this cruise ship now. I really hope that they don't quarantine them on the cruise ship. We're dealing with unprecedented situations overall. No question but we do have a case in lesson from the diamond that we should apply here so so Only forty six of the thirty four hundred people on the ship tested. We don't know how they got to that number again. We do know that. Twenty one of the more positive. That's about half and nineteen of the twenty one were crew so they said they're gonNA test everybody. But how do you determine? I mean? Look if you're looking at fourteen warranty period quarantine period from exposure. That's a rolling period. That's right and so each time someone test positive during that was it restart. It resets the clock. Which has got to be? Just mind numbing for the people that are in that quarantine I I don't know I think the people that were tested probably where people that were suspicious for some reason either because of symptoms or whatnot The crew members that may have been on the previous ship. That was a gentleman who had been on the previous voyage who subsequently died as you know. That's what started all this Ultimately everyone's got to be tested We're talking a lot about testing this past week. The fact that we can't get thirty five hundred people tested on the cruise ship out there in an area where we know there are at particularly high risk. I think is is sort of speaks to the larger issue of testing for the country overall. I mean we. They need to be tested. They couldn't whether they can be tested on the boat or when they get on land. I don't know but I have to say I mean the idea again and I know there's a lot of smart people who I'm sure giving advice but the idea of quarantining them in a place that is essentially going to act as a petri dish is is is a real problem and potentially putting people like Kalian her mom at risk of being exposed to the virus. I mean because they don't they have to eat the food safety ultimately you have to eat the food all right so next breaking news three senior care centers in Washington state now reporting corona virus cases The the latest on the Seattle area outbreaks some headlines on that this hour trump and vice president pence or an extremely different pages when it comes to testing in fact One says the opposite of the other. Who's telling the truth? And the Friday night dump. The president has gotten rid of his chief of staff. And he's got a new one one of his most vocal defenders pay. It's Taylor rooks take it. There is back with more access more athletes more conversations featuring the most high profile players including Kevin Durant Chris Paul Jalen Brown and more watch season two on the APP. This is Dr Sanjay Gupta. Join me for. Cnn's new podcast corona virus fact versus fiction. We know you have questions we wanNA help you find. Answers subscribe wherever you get your podcasts. And your questions on social media at Dr Sanjay Gupta Breaking News. There are now three senior care centers in the state of Washington to be hit with the corona virus a resident of the nursing and Rehabilitation Center in is a Kwa just east of Seattle tested. Positive has been taken to a local hospital just hours earlier. The IDA Culverhouse Seattle announced it had a presumptive positive case with a resident. Who's now being quarantined? Offsite and this coming after the outbreak. At the Kirkland Life Care Nursing Home where at least nine people have died from the virus. Assange with me along with Dr Mark Jared. Who's the chief quality officer for North? Well health where he oversees twenty-three hospitals and Dr Henry Chambers Chief of the Division of infectious disease at San Francisco General Hospital so Sanjay Three nursing homes in one state and a state that we've been talking a lot about with with the number of cases all of Seattle. I mean is that. Could THAT BE COINCIDENCE? But I don't think it is. I mean you know one thing. Is that the first patient that was diagnosed in? This country was in this area January twentieth. They actually looked at the virus of that patient and genetic sort of signature of that virus is very similar to to the genetics of the virus. That's circulating now. So I think that frankly. I think that that virus has probably been circulating in that area. I six or seven weeks and if you try and figure out the number of people who've been affected it's probably in the hundreds older people are more vulnerable and the these these nursing homes is where older people often are. So Dr Jared. How likely is it? That those additional nursing homes. We'll see more cases and you're GONNA get more case I mean. Obviously we still this issue now where we don't have a ton of tasks but that we're gonNA keep seeing this jump. It's most likely we're going to see more spread in those nursing. Homes patients are often eating together. They're very close together. It's the nurses go from room to room. There's been no protection in terms of trying to prevent the spread. So it's very likely we're GONNA see a lot. More cases are so Dr Tampers outside of You know severe isolation practices which are incredibly difficult to do or to enforce. Is there any way right now to stop the spread of the Krona virus in the US? I think we need More testing to identify How far the spread within the community? And I think there's really no question anymore that this is Made its way into the community. There's no other explanation for what is going on in Washington state and I was just looking on the website today. Magin all of us spend too much time on the Internet looking About the corona virus and now the by far the largest category of a risk factor is no respecter So I think we're going to continue to see community transmission if you think about it nursing homes are not so much different from Cruise. It's a confined group of individuals. A eat together. They play together. They talked together. So I think it will be important to identify cases and to Isolate those and treat those who need care and Be Vigilant And expand testing. So you know Sunday to the point that he's making about community spread earlier. Today we had two members of the trump administration Neither of whom happened to be doctors. And I I don't say it to be funny. We'll see who they are when you see them But they both said the krona viruses contained and here they are what I am pleased to report. Is that the fourteen deaths so far that are completely tragic and very sad in this country. shows that this is being contained because the president took action. We don't actually know what the magnitude of the virus GonNa be. Although frankly so far it looks relatively contained. We don't know what the magnitude of the viruses that's true because we haven't been testing and which is a real problem. I'm sure we're going to talk about but it's not contained. I mean clearly this is spreading. I mean the numbers of gone up. Since the president's first press conference where he talked about the fifteen patients not not including the patients who had been repatriated. The numbers have gone significantly up so many more states affected now in evidence of community spread. Not just one generation not just one group of people to another group within that group to another group and so forth. So it's it's not it's not contained and and you know you have tonight Long Island when you look at the twenty three hospitals out that you've got cases there You the last time you and I spoke about this. You were talking about the just hospitals in general but particularly in this area At capacity in in the in the wards that we deal with this sort of thing Right now you've got a lot of flu cases and now all of a sudden you're gonNA have people presenting themselves with a lot of questions. Well we have a lot of patients who already calling up asking. Can they get tested at number one and number two? We have the issues that we have to figure out how we'RE GONNA make room in the hospital for the patients who really need hospitalization. Were very ill and if we go by the incidents in China perhaps twenty five percent of the patients who get hospitalized actually need ICU. Care so this is going to be a real difficult problem which we're trying to plan for but it's not easy to really move those patients around this time a year so Dr Chambers at the Princess Cruise ship You know because you're in San Francisco right and it's their off. You're you're more than thirty four hundred people on board. We know that forty-six people on that ship protested and Twenty one Positive you got an FBI agent in San Francisco. We've just found out has the virus. I mean you know. Do you think your city is ready to treat these cases when you look at the hospital situation and more if this number does Start to grow significantly. I think it all depends about the numbers Again it gets accent testing to know what we're dealing with in terms of number of cases I know there's been a coordinated effort in San Francisco. I spoke with the infection control team at San Francisco. General I've sat in on conferences at UC My wife works at seep. Emc and so there is An awareness and the need for search capacity which in the simplest terms is an ability to Repurpose resources to take care of people But it depends upon how widely this is spread. And until we have a better handle on that. It's going to be hard to answer that Sunday right now. We don't even know I mean there's been this talk of how many people just one person in fact you only need one you would say the other night what two three seven exponential increase. We don't even know because at this point now we don't even know what you were saying that the biggest factor now is not having a factor. We don't want people getting that's right. That's absolutely true and to to Dr Chambers Point there is this question about search capacity and this has been modeled. I mean you know even with a mild to moderate sort of spread I think it was a million hospitalizations. Two hundred thousand. Icu BEDS and some sixty five thousand ventilators. Those are big numbers and we have one hundred thousand is in the country and about that number ventilators but as you mentioned. I mean we're inclusive search in the country but the flu season so many of those are already being used and that's not easy to just ramp that up no it's not and hospitals. Don't work with that sort of redundancy. I mean correct me if I'm wrong. No hospitals today work very often on just in time supplies which is producing a problem especially to supply chain. It's gotten strained all right. Thank you all staying with me though because next mixed messages so I'm intitiative testing. The President says one thing and the vice president is now saying the exact opposite why and Goodbye Mick Mulvaney. Hello Mark Meadows president trump announcing.

Four Corona virus back versus fiction. Listen on Apple podcast spotify or wherever you get your favorite podcast tonight. Vice President pence contradicting president trump on testing for the krone virus is what the president said earlier today. So you hear that first and then about an hour later what the Vice President Tad to do which was admit that what trump said was not true? Anybody that digitized gets attest if there's a doctor that wants to test we trust in a matter of weeks. The virus tests will be broadly available to the public and available in any American That is symptomatic and has a concern about About the possibility of having contract and the corona virus so in a matter of weeks not anybody who wants to test can just go in and get a test Sanjay. This is not a small topic and it's not a small discrepancy on. What is really the most crucial issue with the president? Saying is not true. I mean it's really unfortunate because you know I'm sure you're getting calls. I'm getting calls the time colleagues. You know who say that they They have patients who who have symptoms have concerns. Maybe they weren't in China but they were in career Italy or somewhere else. They're concerned and they hear the president. Say That you can get tested no matter what. And we've been hearing some variation of this message for you know really the entire week. It's not true yet. I think it's happening to be fair. And you know if you listen to the FDA commissioner yet your ramping up one point one million tests they say which by the way doesn't mean one point one million patients because some patients have to get tested Twice or even more than what you're making about a role in quarantine to one person multiple times I'd imagine right early on if not semantic. It's not that they're not going to have a positive test later on. So it's it's that's happening and then these commercial. Labs like labcorp inquest. They are starting to ramp up as well but not yet. And you know we're late in the game on this and you know this isn't like sleep. You can't catch up on this later on. So it's it's a concern and I know you're starting to do testing yes. We're a very limited availability for for weeks right for I three weeks. We'll be able to do. Maybe seventy five to one hundred manually a day. We're hoping when we automate in about three or four weeks will be to do a thousand to several thousand per day but that's three or four weeks right and you're talking twenty. Three hospitals seventy five to one hundred days. People understand. This is not a wide widely available thing Dr widespread you think testing has to be for the United States. Even know how big the problem is. I would like to see it. Inc on As a viral panel. There are already viral panels. That are available from several manufacturers. And if you have a test that's positive for a virus that is on one of those panels. You're you're probably okay to stop. But they're going to be people who will not test positive and that is a group of individuals that you want to be able to test and it needs to be widely available. It needs to be a standard test. Frankly to actually because we don't even know Sunday. The extent of many people have it or how many people have died from it because there's no tests so people who are dying now from the flu. Who knows? I think that's a concern. I mean you know there's I think sixteen seventeen thousand people have died from flu this year already. And that's you know that's a number that people are becoming more familiar with this whole corona virus discussion but it is quite possible Erin that that. Some percentage of those those people actually had corn corona virus and died from that instead. They didn't know to look for it. They obviously couldn't test for it so this brings us to some viewer questions. Obviously people want to know if they have it and we're talking about testing But but let's go to a couple of Deborah Ford said how long does the virus live on surfaces or objects? Which is the big question? 'cause you know we hear about measles oh it can lift for hours and hours and hours in the air not so with this but on the surface like this table or let's say a DOORKNOB. Well I mean what I've Read. You can timothy a bit it actually on the surface like this it can live for some time You know several hours even a few days. That's why they recommend regular disinfecting on cardboard packages. You know things that have more of a porous border. It's going to be a lot less. But even on money it can live on bills which is why you saw some of those images maybe Erin and China of them burning currency because they were worried that the money could actually serve as a as a method of transmission. Anyway d'etre to actually you know you hear about a school. There's some schools in New Yorker a school in Chicago the closing to clean for a day and some cases. Chicago longer is that I mean. Can you really? It's difficult to do? We have peace of mind brought. I think I think you can clean most the surface especially where the students are by their desks in areas commonly but to clean a whole building all the time we deal with this daily at hospitals. It's very difficult. It really takes a train team to do it. Not just a couple of people coming in who are trying to do it for the first time and only clean the hospitals. No matter what you do in general are place where you know. You don't go if you don't want to get sick and you have to be there all right. So here's another question. Les Mallory Scanlon Dutch chambers asked this on facebook. What should people living in apartment buildings do to prepare in case someone in the building gets it and you know? Sanjay was mentioning. This had been an issue with SARS a few years ago but with apartment buildings. You're talking about a lot of things whether it be events right or elevator buttons which is similar. What we're talking about here. How would you answer that question? Dr Chambers will first thing I would want to know is the patient who has the diagnosis. Did you have a contact with them? I mean we're worried about services we certainly want to be cleaned. But if that was the only means by which this virus was transmitted. We would not be here today. This is a virus. It's transmitted in close proximity with other individuals. Your cough upon You touch your face maybe You know there's the Renown TO ELBOW BUMPS. It's direct contact. So if if I didn't have any of those I wouldn't be too concerned. Frankly I think that would be a low risk situation More generally though I think what is happening is meetings are canceled and events are delayed or canceled. And they'd be. Rescheduled is the concept of social distancing. Where you're not really quarantined. But there is some Less interactions with other individuals. All right all of you. Thank you very much a next White House. Staffers founded odd. Mick Mulvaney didn't show up for work today. Well now we know why he's out and disturbing firsthand account of illness and travel from Apple. Co-founder Steve Wozniak actually reached out to Sanjay. He's out front. Hi I'm Kristin Ludlow. I'm candace Parker. And we've got a new podcast creatively titled Lead Low and Parker on our show. We talk any and everything in and around the game of basketball. And you'll hear from some of our friends in the sports and entertainment world search for Ludlow and Parker and subscribe today. Hey everyone it's poppy harlow from CNN's boss files. Are we living in a scooter revolution? Have you taken one? There's a new transportation. I'm sure you're noticing it in cities around the World Electric Scooters from San Francisco and Austin Texas terrace Tel Aviv. Line Co Brad. Bow Is my latest guests on the podcast. The company HAS SCALED FAST. Really fast and we talk about all of it. The lessons learned the growth where they go next so tune in subscribed to boss spouse today breaking now Mick Mulvaney out is acting White House. Chief of staff replaced by trump ally. Republican Congressman Mark Meadows. Now mulvaney has been under siege for some time now. Kaitlan Collins is out front Caitlyn. What was the president's thinking here? Well none of this is is a surprise in Washington. It really was a question of when not if Mick Mulvaney was going to be pushed out and Mark Meadows is going to replace him but what is interesting. Is the timing because the president had been talking about getting rid of Mick Mulvaney during the impeachment trial but people close to him and convinced him? Don't do it now because it's only going to make a bad situation worse and the president listened to them but now he's also facing a similar crisis one not of his own making a similarly challenging one in this corona virus outbreak. Yet he's picked. This is the time to push Mick Mulvaney out. Replace Him with Mark Meadows. And it's just really not a surprise because if you talk to people in the West Wing Mick. Mulvaney is not the one who really had the president's ear any longer. He often dismissed him. Didn't take his advice and he wasn't even traveling with him a lot lately which is really one of the biggest signs that somebody is likely going to be pushed out of their role soon. Amazing he did everything he wanted him to do with Ukraine and This is this is how it ended. I mean look a source familiar with the matter. I know Caitlyn's Ben you all have been talking to says meadows effectively. It's been acting as the chief of staff for a Yo You know basically advising trump building his own White House team that it's sort of been happening in front of Mick Mulvaney Space Yeah. It was pretty clear to see. Even Mick Mulvaney was aware of it. That's why he lobbied the president in recent days for that Northern Ireland job. The one he's going to be taking after this because he knew his exit seemed to be upon us but mark meadows is someone who's incredibly close to the president. He has been one of his most consistent advisers during all his years in office they met on the campaign trail when the president was running. And he's really someone who the president listens to actually so it'll be interesting to see what he's like in this role because every chief of staff that the president has picked has been so different in the way that they ran the West Wing. One thing that will be notable about mark medicine. This role is he's someone who actually has relationships with Democratic lawmakers of course he's at outgoing Republican lawmaker but no one really in this position so far has had close ties. Democrats on Capitol Hill. So it'll be interesting to see how he navigates this role. What other staffers leave? Because he's coming in and who of course he brings with him in a White House. That is constant only in its inconstancy. Thank you so much Kaitlan Collins and out front next more breaking news to corona virus patients. Die In Florida. This news is just coming into CNN. And the founder of apple with his own cautionary tale about traveling this time of Corona virus. He joins US live at the making of CNN presents. The story of the world's most famous royal family the Windsor Inside the Royal Dynasty Sundays at ten on CNN. The wait is over coming to H. L. Led all new episodes of forensic files follow the evidence and crack the case forensic files to Sundays at ten. Only eight chillan breaking news. The Florida Department of Health just announcing to people with corona virus have died the death toll in the United States. Now at seventeen as we've been discussing one of the biggest challenges is the lack of testing for corona virus and one person who learned that firsthand is the founder the CO founder of Apple. Steve Wozniak now. Wozniak returned to the United States from Hong Kong and early January quickly developing. What he says was the worst type of flu and his life but was it. Corona virus related. He does not know because he could not get tested. And Steve Wozniak The CO founder of Apple is out front now With with Sanjay and myself and Steve. Thanks very much for for coming on. I mean I just want to give people a chance to understand you're on a cruise with your wife. You developed a serious illness. You flew home from Hong Kong. This was before corona virus was was sort of in the mainstream or the public consciousness but it was spreading at that time in China you reached out to the CDC. You contacted them and tell us what happened. Well actually it was after about a week gone through some bad symptoms and finally got in the US press about a week later and it was a big thing and maybe it would be a pandemic and the CDC was in control and I wrote to the CDC hope that I could get tested that they brought write me back and say oh. Please sign up for a test now. They just rope back to the generic. Wash your hands and if you WANNA sign a protest but are all your symptoms was Kinda passed the worst of the symptoms by then and it was. I wasn't going to get a test and it bothered me but looking back you know. Now we're saying. Oh let's bring all this we're going to have a million thousand soon and maybe more kids but what really the thing to do. I don't think it's the blame the things mistakes we've made. I'm not a judgmental person. I think the thing to do is to look at this example. Which happens pretty rarely these pandemics and be ready. Make up a plan that would've worked for the next one. I think it's too late on this one. I think there are a lot of people walking around this country that have grown a virus arbor cove in nineteen. Even if I had something else and I could have had some other virus from Southeast Asia. Well I know you said your wife was extremely sick. She was tested for everything. They said they had no idea what it was now. Of course she was not tested for Corona virus. But even. Now you're not in a studio right because you just. Oh no no. This was. This was back on January twelfth when she was throwing a blood. They didn't have a test for corona virus. Here there was. Nobody should be tested so the hospital so they just had nothing American. So you you reach out to the CDC you also reached out to Sanjay and I wanNA bring Sanjay because I know you had a whole conversation. Yeah no I think you may know that it was actually John Sculley. Who told me about you? And he was worried about you. And then we started communicating by email. What so you never were able to get tested. But you did find out that it wasn't the flu. It wasn't something else obvious that was causing Simpson's. Is that right Steve. Well it was not an American fluid could have been a flu from from United Kingdom that somebody brought on our cruise ship or it could have been one of our stops Thailand Hong Kong. We don't there's no way to tell you that we want to have a test. It'll say did we have it back then two months ago and we're signed up for a test but Hopefully get one soon have better answers. We find out whether it was or wasn't I tend to think it maybe wasn't virus because you Dr Sanjay Gupta me that because we had gi symptoms diarrhea and vomiting that that doesn't go with the corona virus and they're up at their other explanations. That could make that possible so I I haven't given up. It could have been virus. It could be that we had some other virus other flu bug on. Glad that you're feeling better. I U N Janet both because I read I you know Sounds like it was a really tough experienced. Tough tough few weeks for you. The test that you're thinking about you. You've you've been hearing all about the difficulty with testing still now so many weeks later but after the fact now there's still a test that they can possibly do. They would measure the antibodies to see if you had been exposed to this virus at some point in the past. Is that what you're talking about the blood test and that's what we're requesting excellent. I mean Yeah I you know I guess one of the questions I have you. Sanjay we just to give everyone a sense right. This is something that could give us a sense of how widespread this really. Why because right now? We DON'T KNOW STEVE. Saying a lot of people walking around with it. I assume you would concur. It's popping up in city after city after city. There are carriers. That aren't protected. We don't know the number because we don't have tests and people with a slight sore throat. Let me tell you something when we came back from Hong Kong and we felt he symptoms getting real strong in us. We were around my son in who was living in our house for a few weeks for about one to two hours and he came down with a sore throat but it was mild enough. It didn't seem like you know some farfetched thing you've got to report he's younger. So how many people like that? Could there be in this country. And how many could have come back the way we did. That actually had that virus or something else as we might have you know. I. I don't. I don't claim we had it but we were early early in the game and And we had something Pete and I wish I wish never again what I want to go through what I had to go through to get on your show. I described as the worst flu of your life. We've been hearing a lot about sort of numbers you know in terms of how many people have been infected but in terms of what it actually feels like when you say the worst flu of your life. What what what. What do you mean the the early starting sore throat Part of it and breathing difficulties. I'm only had really A high fever for only about one day and it went away but You know laying in bed last night. I had the same symptoms. I don't know what I have right now. Might be something. Totally new and different might be mild but lay in bed last night. Oh man it felt the same and it's no fun at all. I hope it's not a relapse. Stephen Elon Musk came out. You know obviously you know you know. Him Tesla SPACEX he tweets today corona virus. Panic is dumb when you hear something like that given what you've gone through given what you're worried about what. What do you say when when someone says something like that well? There is some truth to that because the panic is oh my gosh we might get it will. I don't think anything. Would we've taken one step. That's GonNa you from getting it or not. I mean there's a lot of carriers around that you can't tell you can't see you have. We haven't done anything really. So why panic about a panic just gets the way of you know at least some clear thinking how do you? How do you walk that line? Sunday? I think that you know the the I sort of agree with that. I think the honesty about this facts data and present that I think it can be done in a way that does not is not histrionic nor is it Joy pollyannaish. Yeah I mean you know we would suggest yeah. I'd love to hear next on the next time. Dan Deming is a rising the very early stages. I'm going back to early January. We should have a plan for strong leadership that starts taking a lot of action to be ready in case it does come here and you know and and look at these crucial. Did we ever say well like security in airports we could test everybody going on not give them a real full corona virus test but just look at them. Do you have any of the symptoms and keep them away from the others. We don't do that. We don't do it. Its warts events. We don't do major events now. It's probably impossible to do is. The answer is way too many too many modern society until her smacked in the face with it as it turns out all right. Thank you Jackie reactive. We should be active and think about the next one. All right thank you very much. Appreciate Your Time Steve. And next day a much lighter note on this story people elbowing their way through the corona virus prices to hop ones the game show.

REShow: Charlie Blackmon and Jeff Pearlman. Hour 3 (09-19-18)

"Rich Eisen on demand, your show your schedule, fifteen minutes after ball dot com. Check out the casts at richeisenshow dot com. Volley beauties, new all in one hair-color kits, make it easy to color your hair at home, get everything. You need to color. Her putatively radiant results loved by professionals, open to everyone. Sally beauty. All right. Hour number three of the rich Eisen show is on the air. Our poll question is simple with the new Bella check book coming out where there's some unnamed assistance being quoted in there about how the coaching staff doesn't view Tom special as the rest of the football world views him and his specialist. Mr. craft views him lot was the sense of the coaching staff back in two thousand fourteen when Garoppolo was drafted that quotas in a book, holy crap. The Steelers get Antonio Brown back in their mixed, but lemme on bell still not. Their Big Ben is still giving soundbites that are one-sentence too long for us to not second guests. He leads the league in those the raiders are onto. We figured, let's put them all in there and say, would you rather be a fly on the wall of what's the poll question is we're here top of the hour number three. Yeah, right now find the wall and the which NFL locker room right now Pittsburgh forty, three percent, patriots forty percent raiders eighteen. Percents football for a buck. The crazy rise in crazier demise of the USFL Jeff Pearlman will be joining shortly. He is in our green room. Can't wait to have him come out here till some great stories about a league that had some serious talent in it. I mean, all these new leagues are starting up right now. Love to have one of the players that the USFL us to suit up. Just one of these guys would be good for any of these leagues that are about to start up next year. Trying to get our attention is football fans and the non-playing season. Let's turn to the phone lines right now and welcome in a guy who has been here, which we love, and not only because of we love people who come and visit us when they're in Los Angeles. Just love this man's game. Love everything about them. Nobody scored more runs in the National League this year. Nobody has a longer history right now going on and major league baseball than this guy who homered off Clayton Kershaw last night amidst a playoff chase in the NFL west right now involving the Rockies and all star. Charlie Blackmon is here on the show how you been Charlie. Thanks for having you back. Do you want to chime in on our football related poll question, would you like all this point? My fantasy team is winless and not qualified speak. Okay. So walk me through the Owen to what's the name of your fantasy team. We are nasty. We are draft nasty. Okay. Well. Combination of the nicknames of of me and my GM. Oh, okay. And so who is on this team? Charlie. Oh, man, we got well right now over junior who had really high hopes for at this point is underperforming. A little bit core closings did have a really great week right now you can pumped up about the moon. We've already had some some injuries. Why Seaver the in Seattle. Mobile points out anyway, I got a long list of excuse that this point. I'll go downhill. Okay. So is this a league in your clubhouse? Is this a Rockies fantasy league? Yeah, just for fun league with some of my teammates. Okay. So who's leading it was like Aaron auto tune, o or is I mean, what are we got all in it? It's honestly, it's a lot of pictures and bullpen wise and up with Ross time for research and and they usually end up on top because they just sit there do nothing. Right. Well, well, you know, I didn't say that that's not how it goes. Sometimes those guys have a little more free pass. So. 'cause Charlie, just, you know, I covered baseball a lot before I did the NFL thing. It seems to me like like a specialist in the bullpen. It's kinda like a punter requre in the NFL. You know what I'm saying that they're just there's the one job and that's it. And and the rest of you like position players, everyday players might think that they're, they're not, they're, you know, they're not as as shall we say human, you know what I mean? Kuhn's. On what perspective you look at it for, you know, I think baseball's becoming much more specialized and you know, these are. There's players on the team who have a very specific role is role players and they do, you know, one thing very well, and sometimes it might just be I left these out from the walkman or I come in for one inning. Bruce holiday can, but strike everybody out that one, you know. And so you know, from the I suspected of the everyday player it, it looks like they have much less to do from a perspective of, you know, somewhat sitting with clouds at home watching the game. It's incredible that they can, you know, fill up game on the line until I fish slider right on the black and and, and you know, and instant perform at that level with no build up really just like in the fire. Away. Now that was very political answer Charlie. I mean, that was. Was impressive. Football, I can't do you know God rather be out there for three hours and be completely what tired after the game rather than have to like put all my eggs in one basket and hope that like I get it down for five minutes, like a both and got surely it's hard to Charlie Blackmon rocky centerfield or right here on the rich Eisen show you homered off Clayton Kershaw last night. What? What? What is your approach when you get into the box against a lefty of his stature. Just trying to strike out. I wish it gets bored, complicated and that, but try and hit the fastball. I'm trying to be prepared. I know what he's gonna throw kind of faced them a bunch know what the stuff looks like. But at that point and just happened so fast, he's, you know, he's good wanna. Wanna. Look at the whole need to try and scratch out a hit or a walk, or you know, we, we need to push one run across here, maybe one there, and it's really just a battle against the guy like that. Are you aware of how far that ball went off occur shawl last night? Charlie? Are you wear that? Pretty good. I don't usually hit balls like that off. Do you wanna guess do you know how far it went? I think it went four hundred and thirty feet while the if this is prices right rules, you win. You're close without going over its four hundred forty seven feet, which is the longest that's been measured off of Kershaw by anybody since they started measuring this debt in two thousand fifteen and you aren't even in the Rocky Mountain air, you're in the Los Angeles, smog man. Law, which. Six months of this baseball season. I finally got a good swing. What is the Charlie Blackmon workout regimen? What is the wall? It's it's pretty intense. I, I do a lot of. You know, I do. I pretty much work out every major muscle group, my body once every four days and. Even sometimes five days. Okay. Once out of every four. So it's it's sort of like a rotation like a pitching rotation. Is that what you're saying? Well, do. I'll do upper body workout after the game, and then like four or five days later, I'll do another body workout, you know, but one also do a lower body workout, and then I'll be like core, strengthening, and then I'll know. So there's a, you know, three or four different work whilst, but I'll do on. I'll make sure that I do. You know. As I'll do, I'll. What about beard maintenance, Charlie? What does that do you have a regimen for that. No, there's not as much work that goes into that you might soap in it and wealth should out so it doesn't get all Noddy and that's it. There's nothing about, are you serious? I mean, there's no. There's no scissors. No, no, no, scaping no, nothing. It just is. I don't. I don't call anybody except for like once every two months I gets pretty well on its own penny itself. You know, sometimes a little coconut oil in there. You know the dry Rocky Mountain air. That right. But if you're on a streak, you don't touch it, right? No. Mobile jump just waiting. Just you're, I'm just seeing if you ever wait for certain moment before you actually touch the beard. This point at which my. Like the mustache kinda gets really long real in the way me try and he hammers. So when I when I eat a hamburger about and I get my more mustache than hamburger that's usually want no. Oh my gosh. Charlie Blackmon here on the rich Eisen show. Okay. So how do you stay loose when it's it's, this is it. I mean, it's time. Dodgers are getting hot. You need a win tonight. I mean, you don't need to, but it would be helpful if you did. I mean, how do you and your teammates St Louis in something like this really. Well, I mean, this is this is why we play the game. That you have to embrace. I don't think you shy away from this. You know, you even working your whole life. And at the same time, you know, I'm very thankful and lucky to be able to be in the situation where I get to go baseball. And so I think just kind of that perspective helps me stay loose and have fun, but still understand that that I worked very hard to get here. And then I, I wanna do well, and I want. You know, I, I love that answer Charlie because you know, my my, my youngest son has been playing baseball playing pony baseball, and he just loves putting on a uniform and cleats in the hat and running out to his position in the field. And I, I would sit there just saying to myself what must, what does that feel like to be able to do that professionally, where you're also handsomely paid for? What the hell does that feel like to be able to put on a uniform play a game like baseball, every single day. I, you know, I think if you change from that pony league quit. You know, Herning it into a job. I think you're in trouble. I'm seeing guys do that, but I think he still got to play the game because you love it and, and the best players I see in my locker room and other locker rooms are the guys just genuinely loved the game. You know, if you really enjoy baseball, you're gonna. You're gonna have the motivation to work at it. Be good judgment. Continue to play one win. All that good stuff that comes with it. What do you mean by making a job out of it? Because he, I mean, it's not like you're going up there without any idea at the plate. I mean your your professional you, you are a pro. What's the difference between being a pro and making a job out of Charlie games grew real hard. You wanna get to split out at some point over the course of season of over the course of a career wings are not going to go, well, how you react to it is is, is. Very important. Just turn your emotion off and just say, whatever. I don't care. I'm just gonna get through the season or whatever. You know, that's when it becomes the job when you when you stop caring, when you stop enjoying the competition when you start thinking negatively because you aren't doing well, you know, it's really hard. I mean, it's hard to go out there and get nominated, you know, seventy percent of the time by professional pitchers and and consider that good, you know. And so most of the time it's more like eighty percent of the time you know saying. So it's just you gotta still enjoy the game, and you gotta be able to find the silver lining in anything on the baseball during our do you have the philosophy of us? You just wanna take it to the postseason you want, you know, because you're, you've got, obviously the cardinals to contend with this well for a while card spot. I mean, what's your philosophy here on on punching a ticket to the postseason Charlie. Yes, I wanna make. I wanna continue to date while I want to win the division. You know, I'm setting the bar super high all, you know, all that stuff is good. But honestly, like as a baseball player, I think it's very important just say, I wanna win tonight. If we win tonight, I'll show up and then I'll try went tomorrow. And I know it sounds super elementary, but I think that's the best way to play this game is they buy day people very short term memory and and then Edina fees. And then you look up kinda see where you're at. I look forward to seeing you plays baseball as long as you won't. Charlie, I really enjoy watching you play was watching it with my kids last night while you were going yard. Just I don't know. You just, I'm sure you've heard this. Kid's just look at you and they just they just root for you right about you like just the, they could just see it through the television set. It's great. Well, that's great. That's all. I'm hope they baseball little bit better. Why do before let you go? Trevor story, how how's he doing? Can you give me any any two cents on on his health availability? Sure. Trevor got banged up two nights ago on a on a throw and then a swing, his elbow bothering them a little bit. And we'll come back from his scan structurally. It looks like it's cold, but he's pretty bummed out, but we'll go back even tough guy and I don't know what timeframe is, but I expect seeing back at some point. All right. Well, Charlie, good luck over the rest of the season. Good luck to your fantasy team. If you ever need me advice, you know I'm sitting right here for you. You know what I'm saying? I'm here for. Thank you. Got it. You take care Charlie Blackmon rocky center. Fielder Charlie, Charlie, Blackmon, Chuck, underscore nasty. And as e t y. On Twitter, love that guy. You know, it's an amazing thing to how he says that how you handle adversity is how you can succeed and you hear that a lot from athletes. You hear that a lot from professional athletes, right?

Welcome back to the rich Eisen show enjoyed his work for many, many years in Sports Illustrated and now weekly columnist for the athletic. He's written eight books, New York Times bestseller author, eight times eight books for football for a buck. The crazy rise in crazier demise of the USFL. The author Jeff Pearlman here on the show how I Jeff and well, what do you have there on your life for here? What do you have? This is a t shirt, yes, and it is the logo is the San Antonio gunslingers and I, it's the greatest worst logo and pro football. It's sort of his. Yeah, it's like Woody on crack is out at one of liked to present this to you. Appreciate that. A nice ring, San Antonio, gunslingers shirt, and it says what big paper on the back. So one of their star player, one of the stars, a US guy, Greg fields. His name was his nickname, was big paper was with the LA expressed John Hayden head coach, and he cut big paper and big paper reach across and punch him in the face. And the team ended up hiring Liberace security guard because he was calling death threats to the to the coach, long story. But he ended up with a gun singers and he followed the owner of the gun singers home with the baseball bat. After he stopped paying players and walked away with seventeen thousand in cash. I told you there'd be good stories about this. Where's big paper today? Do we know? Yeah, we do because no one could find him, but my son, Emmett is nine years old and we tracked him down. We had to addresses me manure kid, big paper who hit his coach of the bay or his coach. Yes, round up at a Sacramento shopping mall, eating cold stone creamery and a food court. Having a great conversation about the US Val so you you and your son track down, big paper, bad parenting moment. Not son, son, let's go track down a man who wants followed a an owner with a baseball bat and got seventeen thousand dollars in cash. Did you tell your son big paper story? He knew all about big paper and we actually eight to say to addresses one of them was deep in the projects and the other was not interrupted. I had him walking all over. You know, we've found a father and son stuff, they'll never forget them. Never forget. And you know, I ate some mazing to me just again, reading stories like this and seeing the p. I mean, Jim Kelly, Steve Young, Reggie White, Doug Flutie Herschel Walker, Mike, Rozier all people and those right? Who played in the USFL just just for starters, and the coaches to that were there as well, like legitimate serious, big time coaches who were either previously head coaches in league or became head coaches, George Allen, Chuck Fairbanks, Jim Mora on and on and on. You can't around how did this network? How did the USFL not work Jeff? I mean, the first year is eighty. Three, it was. It was a, they lost a lot of money. But the idea was it's going to be spring football and you're gonna lose money the beginning, but it's a start up and that's what's going to happen. To be honest, this isn't a political statement, but this is what happened, Donald Trump, the New Jersey generals heading into the second season and in the lead up to buying it. He said, I love the US years. Great love this league. As soon as he gets the generals, we need to move to fall this Barrasso baba. He held a secret meeting the Pierre hotel with Pete Roselle the NFL Commissioner of the time paid for the sweet and said to him, I don't care about the US fell. I want an NFL franchise. What do I have to do? Again, the NFL busy offering to throw the under the boss of many NFL team and results two straight up as long as the Commissioner of this league as long as my family's anything to do this league. You never be a part of the NFL. Three told him whose face autumn face in a meeting at the Pierre hotel and Trump, you know, say, say, we want the guys resilient. Yes, you know, he does not stop. That's for sure. He convinced the other owners in USFL that fall the TV deal that would be waiting for them and fall would be massive. And he lied and said that he had meetings with all these fog jackets of TV executives, and they were really excited about it, and he was he was the owner of the biggest franchising USFL, Washington kind of Elliott kind of failed. Chicago failed New York. They had a contract with ESPN and ABC. They had to have a New York franchise. So Trump had, you know, overvalued sort of presence. He convinced the other owners to move to fall. They famously sued the NFL. He guaranteed the other owners. They would win the loss of e guarantee they would win and they did. They wanted dollar times. Three was was was one one point, three billion. They went three dollars. Okay. So let's put that aside for a second. So do you think now again, this is not this is nothing to do with politics, zero zero to do with politics. Do you think that any of the NFL bashing. That the president is currently doing was born out of the moment in that Pierre hotel meeting that use told me about that. The NFL's that you will never be part of this league. I mean, it's pasta. I mean, he try by the Baltimore Colts in nineteen eighty eighty in veiled. He met with Brazil out. He said he would sue the league failed. Try by the Buffalo Bills failed, put in a half baked effort to get the New England, Patriots failed for guy who hates the NFL. He's made repeated efforts to get in the NFL. Now everything that's kinda telling also when he was the owner of the generals and this has been Duckie. He did business during the national anthem. He would be on calls during the national. There's nothing wrong with. I'm sure both of us have worked impressed boxes. During the anthem we have a call or something happens, and but the whole idea that this is about patriotisms to me just laughable football for a buck. The crazy Rosin crazier demise of the US fell. The author Jeff Pearlman here, but that said he Trump said, we will win a lawsuit and he did, but did anybody see coming the possibility that the damages that they would receive. One singular American dollar that gets troubled because of the rule checks no exists. I that where is that check right now? Right now, I think is the pro football fame because they have a USO exhibit right now. It's usually in a Bank, vault Memphis because number two Lee was named St. their heart and he got the check and keeps never cashed in. Never cashed it. It's great. A three dollar check. It was I think three dollars and seventy six cents to be precise. Why did it get on? Why? Why was there only one dollar? So basically what happened is because if it was a serious amount of money USFL was what if absolutely so basically what happened is this trial goes on what they were suing. The NFL for what they were saying is the NFL was monopolizing television and the NFL was plotting to destroy the US l. both those things were one hundred percents to the NFL was monopolizing faulty monopolizing TV and they did have these documents talking about what do we need to do to kill this league. Because if you member of got three straight Heisman, Trophy winners, Herschel Walker, microbes ear, Doug Flutie, they stole Doug Williams from the Tampa. Buccaneers they still Brian Sipe. They got Herschel Walker to like it was on and on and on when he means stole no. Stores around with Doug Williams is a perfect example. Here's a Tampa Bay buccaneer quarterback. I think it was forty eight highest paid quarterback in the NFL at the time. There was no one. Unrestricted free agency. There was nowhere to go. You Culverhouse. He hated you. Whorehouse refused to trade him. You know where to go while the Oklahoma laws come along and say, we'll pay you money to come here. Great. The NFL view ause an attack on the NFL like they saw strictly, isn't this. They are tacking us. They're making this hard enough salaries are skyrocketing because we have to match. So the was is going out of their way to kill off the UCLA want a gun and they have this lawsuit, and the jury decides you are right about is correct. The NFL is monopolizing TV this. I mean, the NFL's monopolizing TV the NFL is going out of its way to kill the avail, but envied one of the jurors about the trial. It was fascinating, but the US is own worse enemy and moving to stupid. They had a the hired an outside research group to. Sent to the six hundred thousand dollars for marketing group to present league owners about fall versus spring in this woman gave this long presentation to all the owners gathered around a table and said, the dumbest thing you can do is move to fall. And Donald Trump was first one to stand up and say your crap. We need to move. All right now it was preposterous. So when you interviewed the juror, why did they come up with one dollar? What do they do that? Well, she said they had to the NFL was guilty, but the NFL wasn't didn't actually do anything to cause you US ultimate flight. So they gave her award to them because they were right and guilty, but they just decide to give the minimum reward. But that's like, you know, hey, I'm gonna, you know, I, I appreciate this, you know, get appreciate the service, but I got a tip you. Here's a, here's ten cents as basically what it was honestly, and the best part is Donald Trump is sitting in the courtroom and John. Mara was one of the giants point. Sure still. And he's sitting next to Donald Trump and John Mara jacket pulls out his wallet, takes out a dollar Bill. Bill and handed to Trump. The greatest moment over someone. No wonder he. He loves bashing, the NFL. I mean, this is the ultimate revenge play, isn't it? I mean, if you talking about, you know, thirty years in the making absurdly rich people battling it out right. Oh man, crazy. It is crazy, Jeff, Pearlman here on the rich Eisen show. So what what is your if you've already told me story about big paper? What is your favorite story from the book? One of the many, I mean the the Chicago blitz and the Zona Wrangler traded for each other after the first season. So the blitz were George Allen team, and they have a lot of Tim, Spencer and Greg Landry, and Tim Reitman they'd good players and the Wrangler this crappy team in Arizona. I think they finished four and fourteen, here's an eighteen game season. But the owner of the Chicago blitz was a guy named Ted Dietrich who lived in Arizona, and he got tired of making nine three hour flights, the charter jet to Chicago. So we had the teams traded for each other. So all the players in Chicago were traded for all the players in Arizona, and the blitz became the Wrangler and Wrangler became the blitz. As as players said to me, like my kids had to drop out of school and moved to Arizona. My wife had to quit her job because this guy didn't wanna fly three hours. So it's. It's the best solution ever. Yeah. The owner of the new owner of the Chicago blitz. A guy named James Hoffman two games into the season. He's walking off the field, the new Blitzer terrible their coaches, Marv, Levy, Marv, Levy, thought he was getting the good team until he showed up. Nobody told him that teams are trade God. The owners, two games in the owners walking off the field of this guy, a former there named Dan j it's all humid call. He does sports play for the butts Dan tickets and the owner of the Blitzer walking off the field and Hofmann. The owner says, yeah, so I'm outta here and chickens. Oh, where are you going? He's like, no, no, no. I'm out of here. I'm done with this. I don't wanna do this anymore. And Jacobs is like what? GAM done. I don't wanna own this team anymore. He literally dumped the team on the side of the road and the US avail had to take over like he just decided one day. I don't want to own a US team anymore. I think I'm done and the Blitzer owned and the GM meetings hired all their high paid staffers. The GM of the blitz locks himself in his office. 'cause every media guy in the area and goes, it's crazy. What's going on here? Like non-south everybody the best. Do you want to write a book on this? It's unbelievable. The stories that he's crazy that it it didn't happen like fifty sixty. We're not talking about the AFL in the NFL. This happened in the eighties, and so the equipment would be. Let's say the XFL would call Levy on bell right now. Right? Like you wanna play, realize like you're, you're not being paid by the Steelers. You are not under contract. Why don't we pay you an absurd amount of money. Now, wouldn't you say the NFL would suddenly go hold on a second, right, and try and so you, you can't blame the NFL for trying to destroy competition. I mean, the interesting one is hersal. Do you remember a lot of people don't realize he was. I con ick like Herschel Walker, come out of Georgia wasn't just the latest Heisman Trophy winner. He was larger than life and he was a junior and the NFL into juniors at that time. So he called he called the US Avello and said, I wanna come out of Georgia had a poor family rights Ville, George. I wanna come out and when they signed Herschel Walker, actually the Dallas Cowboys called her so walkers agent right before he signed with generals and said, we think we can get around the NFL thing. We don't want you go into the US l. and Herschel Walker says too late. I already agreed, but it was. It was a giant sort of grenade thrown to the NFL that they sign. Junior coming out of college because you do it at that time. So that was war. This war. Well, I just was going through my head as well. The XFL would not sign Levy on bell. You know why? Because he's, he's had an arrest. I right. It's been, you know, and they're and they're, they're not gonna. Take those people who have been at all of the law and put them in pads and helmets. It's gonna be the cleanly. This alliance is, you know, as they are lockstep with the NFL I think they want to be in in league with the NFL. I mean, Charlie Ebersol has been, you know, everyone in the NFL knows him through his dad for all those years, they got, they got polling and pull them all and others. Very right. Spur. I mean it so there, I think they would like to be in a way of minor league for flirting smart way to go. Yeah, of course. Why wouldn't you want to be in business with with the people who are, you know, the professional football, I guess. Industry Irish, think like it's smart for them to be able to see a quarterback in Omaha who signed by the forty Niners the US I would have fought that to the death to me the team Oma the best thing they can do issue oppress relief in releasing a press conference saying, you saw him here now you're gonna see him there. Absolutely. And also in the NFL with the practice schedules the way that they are and the off season the way that it is now scheduled where you can't get your hands on somebody to the middle of April with no your European league there, you need to get reps and and the number of coaches at say, they cannot develop skill position, players like quarterbacks anymore. There might be a need for the NFL to have another league Nygard spring, but they're not paying for. Yeah, right, right flavor. It's great. Great to have you here football for a buck, the crazy rise and crazier demise of the USFL Jeff Pearlman. That's just a slice of what is here in this book. Thanks for coming on.

Interestingly enough in that piece that I read today, that with all the experts have not read this book yet that the quote that we talked about at during Deflategate that always confused me and certainly. As somebody who is a huge, Tom Brady fan and supporter was very difficult for me to get past. When asked during that press conference after the AFC championship game. If you recall, again, the championship game goes down, patriots, make the Super Bowl. The colts say that they have a football Ryan Grigson runs into right Troy. Vincent runs into his Sweden. Every is the head of a football ops on the NFL saying, we've got ourselves a football, it's, it's off, it's soft. There's something wrong. There's something going on. They test the footballs at halftime. It comes out after the game that something was up with the footballs. Everyone's like here we go again with the patriots now at once by gate. Now it's something to do with the footballs Brady was asked about it on his radio show the next day he laughed it off. Then the Chris Mortensen report saying that what eleven twelve foot balls were below way. Everything went totally nuts. Haywire and Bella check said, when asked about it, you gotta ask Brady, asked the quarterback about this book says that the team Brady and his family thought that was beyond the pale, Tom was thrown under the bus and that led to him thinking and team Brady thinking that they're gonna try and Peyton Manning him. They're going to try and replace him the first minute that they can that the end of his career is going to eventually hit sooner rather than later in the patriots are going to try and get rid of him sooner rather than later like they've done everybody else just like the colts did the Peyton Manning. That's what this book says. It's there's connective tissue here. This book connects alive. Tissue here does okay. The quote grow that Brady them was asked when he spoke to the media. The next day when the quarterback in question that Bella checks to ask was actually asked questions. He was asked the question, do you believe your cheater? And he said, I don't believe so. To which I then came here saying, you know, try that on for size, significant other. You know if you ever accused of cheating by anyway, just say, I don't believe so. See how that works. Right. In the same way that you know trying tell me that you get texts, your wife gets Tex about somebody that you employ is. Beating somebody up in their household, and I'm not, I don't. I don't believe for second that urban Meyer didn't know about it at any rate. I don't believe so. According to this book Brady told friends that his week answer to the news conference question about whether he was cheater, don't believe so didn't betray a consciousness of deflate gate guilt, but rather thoughts of the earlier spy gate conviction and his belief that at least some of this spins over the years about alleged patriot black ops tactics were likely true. Meaning the day after Bella check said, go speak to the quarterback about the footballs him saying, I don't believe so wasn't. Or do you believe your cheater about deflate gate. About spy gate and others and other stuff. Basically. Attempting to fire back at Bella Chac. Same, you want them ask me about deflate gate. Maybe people should ask you about spy gate. I don't believe I was cheater, not me. Wow. But again, it just shows you why there might be mistrust when a trainer is told you're not welcome anymore. Even though the trainers apparently back in the way Brady wants them from what we see, but that it just lays the entire background of whatever might have been a cause of the ultimate fracture that Brady wanted according to this book, a divorce from Belgium. All of that in my mind today on Wednesday, September nineteenth doesn't have much of an effect on Brady's mindset going to work today to try and send Matt Patricia to win three Mark on Sunday night. What does is the quote again, from an unnamed assistant. The book says that the general feeling of the coaching staff when Garoppolo was drafted. Wasn't that Bella check system could make Super Bowl quarterbacks out of all thirty two, NFL starters, but quote, if you gave us any of the top fifteen, we could do it. The assistant said, I don't think the coaches viewed Tom as special as everyone else in football does Mr. craft. Thanks. Tom is the greatest gift ever, but the coaches don't. Get if I'm Brady I'm walking into work today saying who the hell said that because if you're an assistant in two thousand fourteen, I know who still in assistant in two thousand eighteen are any of you. One of those people. And if you are one of the assistance from two thousand fourteen and you read this article and you know, Brady might not be reading this article, but one of his people, one of his friends, it's, you know, it's family as if you read this book about how protective family as I'm walking up to Tom Saint. I'm not that guy. I don't believe that, Tom, let's go beat the lines. And it doesn't matter how many trophies are. In the case, this guy is a sensitive individual who still cries about the fact that his mom was left wondering about his professional playing career because he was a sixth round draft choice. It took so long for him to be drafted. Okay. That's why he's so great. 'cause he's so damn sensitive about the way his career began at Michigan to and uses it as a fire. Four, we go out the door. What's this? NBA news that's going on Minnesota Timberwolves guard. Jimmy Butler has requested a trade coated oriented multiple sources, so him him and him in Thebes or not. The athlete. Reporting that Butler in Tom thibodeau met Tuesday in Los Angeles to discuss situation over the last few weeks, but whereas been frustrated and thinking about his future with the t. wolves decided he wants to move on that means that the timber wolves traded young players, Zach LeVine, and Chris done along with swapping. First round pick for fifty nine games of Jimmy Butler wove woes reporting wants out reporting that he has three destinations that he's looking at be interested in the Brooklyn nets LA clippers and the New York Knicks. Those are the three teams with the max cap space to resign, but were enjoy. How real is it going to be though? Just because he wants out, does that mean he's gonna be granted out? I mean, I think you look at the Kyrie Irving situation last summer about this same time they didn't. They didn't have to do it. They did it too early. A lot of people thought they should hold on him, but they did go ahead and get surgery. It's going to be a free agent this year. Anyway. He's not resigning. He told Tibbs he's not resigning no interest in reciting Minnesota. So I would imagine a deal will get done very soon. Ricky Rubio. Of course, he already tweeted out face plate emoji. While tell you what, what? What's the three teams that are supposedly nets clippers Nick? I'll tell you what they'll fall over themselves for Butler clippers clippers would love, oh my God. That's exactly what they need. Certainly would LeBron coming here to try and capture a little bit of attention here on the rumors that were circulating months ago that Butler and Kyrie Irving had been talking about teaming up with the Knicks summer Dolan money. Somebody's gonna take it. If you magin. It's two of them with pausing. I don't want to imagine. Back back Oakley can come to all those games. Don't screw it up somehow. We'll see. That's it for Wednesday's show. Brent Musburger on tomorrow's program. Everybody, the latest, the writers with Brent and more see. Recently on the producers guide, why are they letting you make these movies, Todd, Garner's interviews with rob Riggle supervised three core motto. Semper Gumby should be the producer, always flexible, Marlin weighing my dad's not money. He's really annoyed by mom, curses him out, and that's what we found out comedy and alive. I like sixteen candles the first view, but I was waiting for the nudity hated those movies. I thought it was the death cinema, the producers guide.

At least hopefully, and with everything going on in Tennessee with. The kickoff before fully buying into this game will happen. I. Was noticing that the chiefs and the Patriots their tests on Monday came back. All negative. So they can proceed with their week. I think that there's a possibility mclovin. You can help me with this that there's a report out there that they may try to put teams in bubbles once they get to the postseason. Yeah. The athletic reported this morning that they're hearing from sources that they're considering a bubble in places like L. A. in Dallas. For the playoffs leading into the Super Bowl in Tampa. Bay. But that seems like a wise decision to make because there's no flexibility there when you get to the postseason and trying to postpone week or if you have a couple of teams that can't play and then what do you do for the following week there for some fans Tuesday night maybe a silver lining more primetime football could be a lot of fun but there is the concern that the NFL is playing with fire with their schedule. At some point, they're going to run out of room to maneuver. And that's what you're trying to. Maybe you're going to have that eighteenth week. Maybe that's your buffer zone that you're going to try to able to get in these games but you can't play doubleheaders baseball had that with seven inning doubleheaders, they were able to make up some games here. The NFL doesn't have that much wiggle room here but who knows, maybe we can add Tuesday nights to the list of times that we put everything to the side enjoy some NFL football. They can't have Saturday night football until after the college football season and there was talk about Friday night football they're really just they're running out of real estate during the week to be able to get these games in and. By all accounts you know everything is fine now but that's just this week all it's going to take his one more outbreak and then. Another titans game that's going to have to be rescheduled, and then the NFL at some point is gonNA say. You know what? The Titans of the problem here we're going to have to penalize them, and maybe there would be a forfeit but the problem with that with the forfeit is the other team doesn't get paid. Yes, it seems like all bets are off with scheduling though with college football big ten announced, they're coming back with their schedule they're going to have four or five Friday, night prime time nationally televised games they're going to play a lot of games on Friday night. And I understand it I mean you're going to have to get these games in at some point in the APP to have that leeway of when you test and then getting the results back and then being able to resume. Titans are able to get ready for this game with Buffalo. They couldn't even go to their facility for two weeks. I. Mean Buffalo could at least practice but play a game but you can't go to your facility, and now you're ready to go and a home game tonight braves rally beat the dodgers last night with the drama coming in the ninth inning and my raise beat the astros four to. Eight seven seven three DP show email address DP Damn Patrick dot COM twitter handle. DP Show poll question McClellan. Who takes it hard? It's after a big tough loss, the player, the coach, or the owner. People are not buying your theory player running away with it. Then coach only a few percent say the owner what I disagree I think the quarterback takes it. Hardest because he was on the field in, he was the one that could control the outcome more than anybody else the coach probably because the coaching in Atlanta during that super bowl loss was poor in the final drive. But the owner is watching this knowing. I may never get this chance again I don't get to go on the field and play. I can't do anything about this. You're helpless and I wondered about that with Arthur blank he gets to own a team. He's a billionaire he's got all the money that he ever will need. but he had to watch unfold. And that's more painful. I think than Matt Ryan. Actually being the quarterback or Dan Quinn or Kyle Shanahan coaching in my opinion the up. But Arthur blank hasn't been working his entire life to get to the point to play in the super bowl or to own team to get into the Super Bowl. Every other guy on that field has been ever since they were a kid this is like the moment they've been dreaming of. But he might be at some point for the last twenty years saying I want to get enough money to buy an NFL team. So he could have a dream that's longer than Matt Ryan served Dan Quinn's but I understand what you're saying I just think is the owner. Those owners love to come down the field they love to be up on that podium. They love to grab the microphone they love to show you their ring. I it's a big deal to them. and. But to to watch that, unfold right in front of you. And then he comes down on the field. And then you're helpless, it's not like you can go on second thought I'M GONNA go back upstairs. I what Arthur blank did on the sidelines there but I wondered about that last night how painful that must be to watch your team you have to go to all those games. Like the giants owners have to go and sit there and watch a horrible product, the jets owners have to go. That the Ford family has to go and watch the the lines like it's It's as great as it is. It's got to be so painful when you have to sit through that and everybody's got an answer for you everybody got a suggestion for. Yeah. But unless you're so competitive and get such an ego that you have to be able to flaunt a ring or multiple rings as an owner, you still get to go back to a pretty nice lifestyle but you could you could blow your nose into hundred Alan you can't buy a super bowl ring, he can buy everything. Can't ring. I can buy a boat Dan. Snyder's got a yacht that he's been floating around in France. If I said you gotTA trade in. The yacht for ring. You'll buy another yacht. Yes mclovin we've all had a week ruined via fantasy football or basketball loss I mean that's fantasy while it's by that by thousand. Also, owners are stuck with the team, the players, and the coaches are all going to play somewhere else or most of them. While they can sell a Dan Snyder could sell no you can't no Intel's NFL teams. But you could and you can make a lot of money. It's. I go back to this with billionaires. There's so many billionaires but how many are relevant billionaires like once you buy a team, you can have two billion dollars and you're more relevant than somebody who has twenty billion dollars. Because, there's only so many of these teams that are available. There's a lot of billionaires who don't own teams. How many of those billionaires do you know who don't own teams aside from bill? Gates. Warren Buffett, there's there's a few and Jeff bezos. Yes see how many of those billionaires only one team they almost have a football team and the MLS team and then the whatever team. I like being stuck with the TV. Great. Valentine's Yeah I've only got one team one team. Some phone calls here. Oh, by the way. I saw this. The Colts Frank Reich said that. He is sticking with Philip Rivers. Philip rivers signed that one year deal and they're not going to go to Jacoby Bruce set Philip rivers has thrown more interceptions. Five touchdowns for is twenty eight since the start twenty, nine, hundred, and third most in the NFL behind James Winston and Daniel Jones that's not a good category to be in. Stat of the. Rest of the. Day. Here comes that what stat of the? There is a sneaky remark by Nick Sabin after a little too close for comfort. Win Over Ole? Miss Sixty three, forty, eight over the weekend and Nick Sabin said it seemed like everything we did they had an answer for I'm not sure if they had our signals or what but that's not anything unusual. It seemed like any time we called something they had the best thing they could call against it. They had a really good plan. Well. Lane kiffin debunk Nick Sabin theory if you understand tempos, signals wouldn't help us and said, we call the play basically before the last plays even over before they mark the ball, we call her play. Then we scramble to get their play called and they're just trying to get their guys lined up. It wouldn't do us any good by the time. Somebody would relay that to us. We're already snapping the ball. Kiffin says he's never known savings defensive signals even when he was savings offensive coordinator from two thousand, fourteen to twenty sixteen. The linebacker for Alabama Dylan Moses was asked if ole miss stolen the crimson tide signals in Moses replied. Definitely I definitely do. If they did. It's on Alabama. Change your signals. It's not illegal to do it is Kevin said people do people do it all the time? It's usually people that play slower people steal our signals all the time. Yeah. Big Mistake here by lane, Kiffin, he should have been asked the you guys know the signals were you student taking it said Yup, and then just throwing a big wrench into Alabama's plans for the upcoming waking getting their head Chris in. Maryland. Hey Chris what's on your mind today? Hey Dan, what's going on there but Hey other soul-crushing night watching the chargers I have a question I know. I have a question on that note so. It seems to me like this has been going on for ten plus years. It's now like institutional. Can you just talk a little bit from your experience about a team i? It doesn't matter whether it's basketball baseball whatever that like had to go through some sort of like institutional change to become a winning franchise and what what they were required to do to make that happen. Well I think the Patriots did that member when Victor Kiam was the owner. You know that was in the late nineties maybe and you needed to change at the top and you got IT A. I'm sure they're. Numerous ones mclovin Chicago cubs. Yell you changed ownership and then you you brought in Theo Epstein. The cubs didn't try to compete for a long time. Like financially just didn't feel like they were comfortable they sold out they had a wgn seen all over the country. And yet Harry Carey the add a couple of stars. You know you have mark grace you'd have rhino. You'd have Sammy Sosa Rick Sutcliffe like he had just enough you had the great atmosphere there and then all of a sudden I think the cubs go. Shouldn't we try to winner? World Series here. How do we do that? I don't know. When the White Sox one I, thought that's when the bell would go off and go. Hey. The white sox one. They did I did notice that. Trying to think who else? In Club the team they paid last night, the saints were a laughing stock for a long time Benson and then and the remember the bucks when I was a kid or transient, and that was Hugh Culverhouse. Was the owner but he brought in John McKay Legendary Hall of fame coach and. John McCain had great quotes. We. Ask after a loss I'm paraphrasing and he was asked. What do you think of your team's execution and he says, I'm all for it. I. Love that. Yeah I'm all for. Eric in Virginia haircuts on your mind today. Hey two things Dan one with Alex. Smith interview that was great I'm wondering what is the greatest miracle him coming back or the redskins actually being competitive at some point what would be the greater miracle they're probably the redskins being competitive. But on on on the Basketball Front Lebron James, I'm wondering if he's not being seen as great as Jordan because he hasn't changed the game like Jordan did from a place standpoint from where Jordan took the game and from a merchandise standpoint what are your thoughts? Yeah. I mean you know the Jordan had this ten part documentary and and that was released strategically. Because you know, here's Lebron with the Lakers their favorites co favorites to win a title, and it just felt like now Michael is ready to do this ten part documentary. and. Then we're going to drop. This past year. And If there was any chance for Lebron. To. Have come up for air and say, Hey, I'm right there with you you know Michael Basically. Suffocated that because you gave that whole new generation that has bought into Lebron maybe being on equal footing as Jordan. Now, all of a sudden they're watching this on. Wait a minute. I didn't know anything about this. I knew he won six titles. I didn't know how he won those titles in who he was in his personality. But it just you know it doesn't matter. Lebron is going to be greater than Michael Jordan in people's minds. Just, not gonNA happen. It doesn't matter if you're over the age of forty, it's not going to happen now I'm open minded to it, but that's because my job is to be open minded to it. Know Lebron will have the greatest resume in NBA history in my opinion when it's all said and done now might not be the best player. You can't argue with what he is done longevity. Wise. and. Michael was ready to bail out a basketball he was exhausted. And here's Lebron at thirty five. He reinvented himself lead the League in in assist, and he's still the best player in the game. That's why when people talk about all the Greek freak and I sit Lebron is still the best player in the game. You know. Luke this or we throw in whoever you want to Lebron is still the best player in the game. At thirty five. Two full three full seasons of playoff basketball. High End. It's like when Kawhi? Leonard Haze averaging close to a triple double Lebron has done it for his career. And he's the one the last one standing. In. The End, the Wilderness. But as much as I. Love. Jordan I was there to see all of those shots. I. Covered all of those and you know I thought it was magnificent. It was magical. But. If you said, who will have a better career when it's all said and done if we factor in everything from start to finish. It's Lebron. Many more years in Jordan. He's going to be what top five and assists it'll be top five and scoring. He, he's done. Everything that you would want now is he had hiccups along the way yes. But nobody ever brings up Michael bowing out in the first round. Rain, they don't bring that up. Or that he passes up a shot that somebody else takes or quit the sport for two years. But start to finish Lebron will have the greatest career. And not saying the best player. But the greatest career in basketball history and he's not done yet. If he tax onto more quality years. I don't know anybody touches him with the numbers that he'll put up, and if he only ends up with four titles and he loses six times in the finals. Okay. GimMe the guy who Ten Times as opposed to the guy who got their six times. Because at least we got there Mike didn't Mike Got There, six times he won all six. Lebron is gone like every year that Lebron is not in the finals were shocked. And like you said, the bronze careers can be much much longer. lebrons played like fit fifteen, hundred NBA. Games. Jordan's at like twelve hundred and fifty including the playoffs and counting the Bronx had at least two more years left deep playoff basketball. He's going to be at seventeen hundred career games played. Yeah Paulie is this is this the picture worth or blank before and after Oh my gosh I picture is on the sidelines chopping up with the Mrs. Wherever she is now. Oh, he's so proud. He's got his falcons colored red on. She's got a falcons colored dress on. And then there's the other one where they got the ball patriots got blown over time. I'm a billionaire got a young wife. And we're going to suffer the worst loss in super bowl history. I, we'll take a break here CCC bath. You will join US coming up.

You can find out if there's a Mercedes amd coupes and Anorexia view that's right for you. Mercedes am. Driving performance. See is the former Major League Baseball pitcher cy young winner. World. Series. Champs six time all star joining us on behalf of draftkings C C Sabathia back on the program one last time you were called Karston. Wow, maybe like a seventy eighth grade. By Carson for a long time at school in my friends you know growing up they just Kinda took over in see-seekonk over about right in high school but then you have a son so. See the third year, but he goes by KARSTON so everybody. Off In cars. IS HE GONNA change. Once he gets to high school. He's in high school so you do you. Think is living here in the northeast you know being in Yankee. Land I guess he is just easier for him to go by Karston then CC. So you know he's he. We call them little. See for a long time. He wanted to be call Carson in about the ignite grade. So we kind of flip flop. Lunchtime you throw a baseball. I try to be pizza boys about two weeks ago it didn't it didn't go. Out There They took you. Can't even get it this I. couldn't even. Right, now you watch me throw you did you see the first pitch after? Yeah, it is. It's kind of like that way to arrive while I was wondering if you were going to be in front of the mound. You know what I like should I go to the front of the mount is up when I was pitching always got. Mad But just annoy people ran out to the mail saying like I'm GonNa. This is my workspace. Out there tomorrow get on of light. This is far I'm not gonNA, make I mean. I was wondering a couple of things here. Walker Bueller has problems with blisters. But I don't know do pitchers get calluses like a guitar player gets calluses and then it doesn't affect you. But how does some pitcher? Why are they more susceptible to blisters? You know is weird you either get calluses you get listen. So I, was always guided this. I will get like hard skin like calluses. I can see where guys like in the same spot where the guys will get Bush. So I can see how that could affect you how some guys you couldn't pitch with that in a really really hurts but mine which is build up like a hard, really hard callous by like May. I was good to go for the residents season, but I can see how some guys you know develop blisters but you either get listeners or it develops a really hard scandal account. So is nowhere wow that you kinda get vote but but how do I then treat a blister if it happens during a game? Is there anything you can put on it do anything there's really nothing that you can do. You know they have like these things that they tried like the liquid you know scans and all that stuff. Yeah ends up ripping off you know especially as you put pine. Tar on or you know arise in anything that try to keep your your hands sticky especially, these playoff game you know what I mean you're making big pitches you're sweating your hands get sweaty. So you gotta you gotTa have your hand driving. As soon as you do that ripping off the ball rips off. Any kind of you know any kind of medicine anything they put on there in your back row again. So it is really tough watch Asia predict go through that and it just sucks man it is really really tough thing to do. What did you think of? Walker Buehler's pan-slav. Because if you wear the baggy ones. These threats yoga pants he had on it s the middle aged man. You know what? I'm saying everything. That's like the kids. Now you know when I was growing up, was the baggy shorts was the bigger the big The thing and now they're going back to like the seventies and eighties source plays basketball to win you know the smaller, the better these dates knowing everything comes back. I don't know if the smaller the better the tired better. I can't imagine you out there viewer pitching. Now you would be those Capri pants that Walker bueller on night. Absolutely. But as I got older and you know somebody's kids came up, they will give me a lot of crap about how big my pants were as you know when I was in the middle of my career was cooled into where a big band. So yeah I turned into the old. fashioned. NAP fashionable guys in my when you didn't have that Cleveland when you pitch. TYPE PANTS WE KNOW BAGGY PANTS I did I started wearing a baggy pants. About two, thousand, four or five. When I D myself a veteran, you know old enough to kind of do whatever wanted the first couple of years I just wore whatever they gave me which ended up being Mike Tight and then I had elastic the at the bottoms over bunch of it was a very. Bad Greg. Maddux. Look I guess have to say earlier in my career and you're in Cleveland and you're there at the time. Lebron is still in high school I believe. When did you get word that there was this two way sports star in in the area right away our Our trainer with the Indians of possible GOUZER erect. Football and basketball games, and he would always tell me about this kid he was Lebron the freshman at the time he was like you've gotta come see this kid play basketball. You know he's GonNa be the next Michael Jordan he would always say you know this guy's a great football player come out seeing I'm like listen I. Don't like have time to go watch a ninth grader like a fourteen year old go play like I. got other stuff to do you know what I'm saying like blasting I want to go tonight grader fast forward to the next year he's a sophomore. In Oklahoma State Championship in it was it was it was really close and. Paul goes just come with me to the game. You don't saying it it'll be worth it. So I ended up going me and my wife and it was it was the Lebron James. You see now he knows it was he was a man amongst boys. You know it was just it was must see you know basketball inserted into must see TV so you know watching them at fourteen fifteen years old. This is what he was gonNA turn into he CCC bath you the former Cy young winner and world series champion Oh. Nine with the Yankees how nervous would you be if you're a dodger fan given what's at stake Clayton Kershaw today against the braves we know what I feel pretty good about Kershaw out there today You know he's obviously found his tick back up You know he's found a way to pitch with the Lesser Velocity you know he's older now I think just at some point these things to turn around. So I would be a little nervous but I would actually feel pretty good about kershaw going out there considering high pitched all year this year and even you know in his last playoff start until he gave up the back to back homers but you know how this is mental those CC, when it comes to play off baseball and especially with pitchers, they're just some guys like Andy, Pettitte? Curt Schilling smoltz. Guys that say you I love the moment. Give me the ball and. Good things happen. You know I I can speak to myself. I had to grow into that because if you look at the way in two, thousand, seven offs If I pitch the way, I pitched the rest of my career plows. We were the world series in Cleveland you know so I had to kind of grow into. Wanting the ball and kind of understanding my body, you know not letting them only be too big. So yeah, I mean it's one thousand percent mental when it starts to pile on and you know you hear all these different things. You you got your rival, the giants you got bumped up garnered going out there. He's dealing every postseason yet it starts to play tomorrow but you know hopefully he can get past us and he's such a great pitcher I mean he stopped pitching right now he's going to the hall of fame so you don't want to be a notch. So hopefully, he can Casey's guys who world series because if he pitches the way, he picks it up in the regular season postseason the last five years they have title. It you start to believe. It's your fault would go out on the mound and you know you don't have it. May sound crazy. I never knew that when I did have always. But you. You. Alone is like. This is loaded already seven runs in the first. Place. Really stubborn and in Madigan's WB whether in that way. So always think that I can go out and get out even at the end of my career. So yeah. I always thought I had. The baseball nearby. Let me see. Here. Is the Mariano Rivera Verizon baseballs. So. If you were going to show like normal grip, like do you know how kershaw grips like his curveball or? Does. He do anything different you'd be both left handed. Yeah. No I. Don't I wish I could I wish I will pay attention to that looked it up. But when I did throw Koerbel it was just right here on seem like that So you're you're digging your your nail in the in the seem I didn't really dig my mail land. Spiker. But I didn't like dig my mail like a lot of those guys just because all I was always scared about tipping pitches all obviously like maybe somebody can see that my nail or something like that. So always wore bigger gloves and lights make make sure really stiff just. You know, hi, my change air or be digging around for the ball and not really worry about somebody seeing. What would I was grabbed how? To hold the ball for his slider. Was Cutter Cutter. Across, like that. And if you through the same pitch. Not the same reaction. Mathis every Annette. Amazing though yeah you. Mo Envy. Really Taught Me to counter which saved me. You know my last four years of my career. And and you know Kinda learn most grip. But I I want to and his arm action just because I knew I could never mimic what Mos- doing with the ball you gotta? Maine. So I just try to get modest toast as the Andy Pettitte as I could. So we'll talk to andy more about what he was actually thinking about the cutter, but I would always use most grit don't you didn't smear the autograph. Did you know if I do I get? What are you doing with draft kings? So we teamed up with Dr King's. Through the playoffs, you know just trying to get people engaged with the product among big daily fantasy player. So it was it was easy an exciting team with them. Team throughout the championship series you know we've been you know just doing interviews let people know about the product. Do Fantasy football I do. The only played college football. I did. Yeah. So this week was like the classic like what you don't want as a fantasy player. I have had mahomes are raiders were playing Kansas City and we never be Kansas City in Kansas, city spent twenty years as we begin sitting. Kansas. City. So I was a little bummed out that like we shut him down also much because I needed the winner fantasy, but I was super excited that the rate has got a win Kansas City. So let's kind like if you're a superfan of a team that's down s kind of like the downside of playing fantasy you know, but you know being a raider fan like you're okay that they went to Vegas I am as a fan. You know I grew up La Raider Fan obviously the early eighties So you know I wasn't really connect super connected to the Oakland raiders being from the Bay, but but I traveled to La, to go watch them you know and I have no problem traveling Vegas as an athlete plan in the Ogle Coliseum. I'm excited that these guys are. Awful awful place to play sport. So even go watch a game I watch again I went to watch a baseball game there it was the royals against the as and I remember there were like four guys who came rolling out of the top deck they were fighting with each other. There was no fans there whatsoever it was dad might have been the worst stadium in all sports ahead to because you're not connected for baseball game news so far away is so much foul territory. You know what I'm saying like and as a as a fan of the raiders, you just want nice stuff like you go to. Church. So now, I'm excited that Bremen's dating my Go-to and. Lois the raiders, the raiders I'll follow to the moon loans. They don't change the name I'll go wherever they go. Now, you doing more media stuff.

You know how they say History Repeats Itself on the Frost Tapes podcast we'll be sharing interviews from legendary TV. Host David Frost who sat down with some of the most influential people of the sixties and seventies time that feels so much. Today we've allowed ourselves to be so divided when he said and they think that's me too. But when the president does it, that means that it is not only listen to. The frus tapes on the iheartradio APP Apple. PODCASTS or wherever you get your podcasts. You WanNa talk about baptism by fire. Here's Justin Herbert who gets thrown into a game against the Kansas City chiefs. He faced Patrick Mahomes he's space Tom Brady and he's faced drew brees. Annie's held himself almost to the same level with them I mean hung in with all those I mean even last night I'll play drew brees. Four touchdown passes no interceptions there to go toe to toe with those MVP's and their hall of famers right out of the gate. Is really impressive and not known as I. Think when we saw him at Oregon, we were seeing what we thought was a finished product and then he went back to Oregon and then it felt like it was an unfinished product there I think there was concern about his accuracy he has athleticism you saw that the Rose Bowl with three rushing touchdowns. But, he seems like he's able to handle the moment there. Here's just an herbert after last night's loss. We gotTA LEARN HOW TO CLOSE UP Games. You know it's the second week in a row where we had lead we let it go and just have to learn to to close out And we're up, you need to keep rolling and need to play consistently all four orders and that's we haven't been able to do that. Yeah and that's been a big issue but that was a big issue with Philip rivers man it continues here with Justin herber even though Herbert played extremely well final results of the poll question mclovin who takes losses, the hardest the players, the coaches or the owners players coaches basically tied at forty six percent and then a few people say the owners yeah I I. Maybe fans should have been in there too. That's true. Because Mean you hear people call in all the time here on this show and it just there either you know on cloud nine or they're in purgatory and those losses just stay with you, and if you have friends who give you grief all the time I mean that's where they go. They're going to go for the both sensitive spot and he'll be well could be worse could be a falcons fan or throw in whatever team you WANNA. Throw in there. Chris in Wisconsin joins US Good Morning Chris. What's on your mind today? Love the show I just wanted to call in about the Lebron Jordan debate and I was just you. You never mentioned the two years that Jordan took off and I think he'd have to assume that he wins at least seven which completely changes the debate. Well I didn't say that Michael wasn't the greatest player Chris I'm saying the greatest resume. Lebron is going to be blow away Michael in stats. He's just not going to have as many titles. Even if Lebron Ed's. Five and Michael has seven. I feel like even if Lebron had six with Michael six, it's still not going to be good enough for people club. Then Jordan kind of saying the documentary if I didn't take those two years off, I might not have had the two years at the end of my career like, is it a sure thing that he would have stuck around for eight people give them eight titles bezos to I know we're handing them out like. Candy, he hinted that I needed that break to fuel the last run with three more times and I believe that because he was burned out, he was exhausted. I don't think it's given that Mike would ended up with it. But you know if you. Build up the myth. Even bigger. Go ahead. have at it. Are you. Are you saying it's not automatic that if Michael didn't play baseball, he'd have eight in a row. Ahead shaken. Go figure. Go figure. I think the rockets if they went toe to toe I, think the rockets were better team. Basketball. Baseball. Akeem man he could play some first base. Yes. mclovin the bronchitis took last year off by the way. Wow I know he was heard yeah. He didn't take it off current recipes like. He got hurt. You rest when you get even allies Inter Europe. Totally load you did take this year off too. Yeah. I haven't heard that quite the best player of the game I haven't heard that talk in a while. Go. Kyle and California. Hey. Kyle what's on your mind today? ADP. Make love and first off Joel embiid. Thank you taking his whole career Oscar Wilde. First of all engineer was ever GonNa on the eighth straight. They weren't beating the ninety five magic. They didn't have any rebounding. So everyone there hush that. and then the whole. Thing like Lebron's whole thing. Is You so adamant about people respecting where he plays he loved Michael That's why he's number twenty three but he didn't WanNa do it that way that's not who he is. He's a pass first guy says best skill. It's what you always talk about what everybody talks about people want. Lebron wants people to appreciate everything. He does just like with the upset about not winning MVP, this year. Maybe, he didn't think he was MVP but he's saying Jaanus isn't doing all the things I do behind the scenes with the Lakers galvanizing the group Luda Bob, all that stuff is what Lebron. He needs that respect and that's where he just doesn't get it. Yeah and I didn't WanNa have him beg for thank you was always I love your perspective. You know. Lebron saying you know now I want my damn respect. If if you have to ask for it, it's not worth it. Whoever's going to give it to you? They either appreciate you or they don't. And they're just going to be there's a certain faction that's never going to appreciate. Lebron. And he has to come to that realization. No matter what happens it doesn't. It's not going to matter All right. Let me see what else do we have I? Think I ran through everything? Yeah. Paulie change sports history nine hundred and sixty Dan bill maske's bottom of the ninth home.

So standing in the clubhouse outside the clubhouse and Jim of the giants walked over to Barry Bonds at the locker and said there's a guy outside who's got your home run ball. He just wants to switch it for autographed ball. He didn't WanNa meet Berry or anything like that I'm very squinched looks shakes his hand says No. And went back to his headphones.

Whitby not for awakening may give it the batteries for fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. No it's from geico. Because they help save people money. Well i hate to break it to you but geico got it from shakespeare gyco fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more so what does a running back do after his playing days are over. Hey this is former. nfl star. Mongering for me. I started a podcast. Each episode bring the world of competitive gaming an eastwards to life with my podcast gamers loud. I'll bring my experiences from being a collegiate eastwards head coach along with interviews with the top video. Game streamers gamers from hollywood social media and pro sports. listen and follow a mongering damas lounge on the iheartradio app apple podcasts. Or wherever you listen to podcasts. You are listening to the dan. Patrick show on fox sports radio. It's a thursday. Our one dan in the danettes. Dan patrick show. Could we limit the number of three point attempts in an nba game. Too much of a good thing chris. Mannix will join us on loan from sports illustrated coming up. I'm looking at the numbers. The nba is on pace to make twenty seven thousand seven hundred thirty one three pointers this season. That would be just two hundred and twenty four shy of the record which was set in two thousand eighteen. Keep in mind. We're going to have ten games less for each team. This season teams. Averaging almost thirteen made three pointers per game. The league is on pace to break that record for a ninth consecutive season. Averaging thirty five attempts from three point range per game that'll be a record for the tenth consecutive season. But i'll talk to mannix about it saw article on. Espn that said. May maybe you limit the number three point attempts or made. Let's say you have twenty that you can do each half and then after that at three point shot counts as two points. I think if you brought a little bit more physicality to the nba where you could hand check somebody. That might help out a little bit right. Now it's basically free flowing where you can just stand on the perimeter in everybody can take a shot ball movement. Pretty good on the perimeter. Kids love it as well. I mean you're able to imitate your best player. Your favorite player. i mean. imagine that you get on the court. You won't be steph curry. How often do you get to do that. I know of people are bothered by. Maybe it's just a purist that there's too much of a good thing here. This is what basketball is. It's about dunking. it's about layups. And it's about three point attempts. Okay so we're going to take away something. The players have improved because for a while. There are a lot of players who weren't great shooters. They made themselves great shooters. I think what the nba make at is are we. Creating great basketball players are are they one dimensional. Just stand on the perimeter and you can stay in the league for next five years because you can shoot or seen. Marquee players like jason kidd or vince carter. They become three point specialists. I'm okay with it. I don't want to be add gimmicks. Hey how many three pointers have we attempted. Nineteen so you get one more this half or in the final six minutes. It's been proposed. Now this is just. I think powerbrokers behind the scenes talking about this in the final six minutes then the limitations are off. You can shoot as many threes as you want to. I don't need gimmicks it's this is basketball. You said this is what you need to do in players have improved their games. Now i go. Oh wait a minute. You guys got to good. Got two good here. Yeah paulie you sound like a guy who doesn't need a gimmick but you'd kinda like something to cool off threes. I would like okay. First of all watched games now where nobody's called for palming like you can get your shot. There's no travelling. And i can't put my hand on you. These guys are so elite in what they do. And i can't slow them down. This is when you go back and you watch a game. That jordan played in or bird magic. I can fis- i can be physical with you. I could put my hand on you now. It was still entertaining. I just. I don't know how it's so hard to play defense now because i can't put my hand on you at all and there's no i nobody calls a carey anymore. John stockton and allen iverson used to have a little bit more of a handle and then all of a sudden why. I was watching a game last night college. I'm going. Nobody's calling this north carolina notre dame and and you could see how such an advantage i can take that ball and i can. I can have you off balance in a second. And you can't put your hand on anybody. There's the physicality of just being able to man up is gone from the nba. But you know maybe it is too much of a good thing. But i don't think we're going to be doing anything anytime soon. I don't wanna gimmick in there where we're counting the number of threes. Yes mclovin also the fouls on james harden and doncic are there unwatchable. Why do they call those little things. Where pardons is throws his body in. Yeah in trae young has mastered this where he's running down the floor and then he'll shoot and back up into you in steve. Kerr said you can't do that. You can't allow that reggie miller. I think invented that by the way yarmuk levin but the ncaa tournament is going to be decided by one play. A one play only landing in the three point. That was the only thing that that's why you want a title. They won like games off that one. Call eight that rule. They do that when you were jump shooter. Back in the day did get a space. Did you know they would put their foot underneath you that they wanted you and you would go up. They put their foot underneath. So you're thinking about coming down and avoiding their foot. Believe it or not. But i'll talk to mannix about this. I don't know if there's anything that can be done should be done. But you're seeing the proliferation of the three point shot college in high school even grade school as well. Eight seven seven three. Dp show email address. Dp dan patrick dot com twitter. Handle it teepee show. I did find this story amusing this morning because it feels like the boston celtics in on every possible. Free agent all the big names danny ainge. I'll we just missed out on chris. Paul kevin love jimmy butler quiet letter. Anthony davis paul george. Then a story comes out that they just missed on. James harden here feels like danny ainge. Wants everybody know that danny angels doing his job as a gm. We're trying. we almost got him like they almost get these great players. You know who they've gotten exactly none of these players. Hey we got kimball walker okay. That's it chris. Paul kevin love jimmy butler cli- leonard. Anthony davis poetry. Hey where you guys sit on. James harden sweet. Yeah and we almost got him almost. Yeah we almost got wilt chamberlain. Now we almost got cream. Wait danny you weren't there then. You almost got tim. Duncan don't bring that if you on the laundry that's still people I'm fired up today. This program brought to you by mercedes. Benz vans they go far beyond from their customization options. Cutting edge tech five star sales service financial support crew mercedes benz vans built equipped in engineered to get ready for anything. So go the extra mile taking the all important. First step into an authorized dealership today. And don't get me wrong. I love watching the three. I think it's exciting. I think it's more exciting than the dunk and the strategies that go into this. I think a really important. But i will say this. James harden is getting credit for changing his game. James harden is getting a lot of credit for an mvp candidate widely changed his game. And you know why because he had to because if you look back on his game in houston it didn't succeed. He needed to change now. Is there a middle ground here. Because i'm looking at the lakers lakers a great shooting three pointing team the great three point shooting. They don't shoot volume the seventy sixers. I think our bottom of the list there utah jazz. I and shooting threes. What is sustainable. Because there is sustainability in the regular season and that doesn't always translate into the postseason. Postseason comes down to half court basketball. My opinion always has always will. We're playing the same opponent. There's no tricks it's not. Hey we gotta deal with this guy one night and now we move onto another guy. It's every night we're going to be facing you and here's our game plan and then you see what teams are really all about that philosophy. That game plan. Does it work. And it's going to be the same this year. we utah jazz. They fired threes. Okay is it sustainable in may or june. That's what i want to know. The nets the nets have mid range jumpers. I got joe harrison. James harden but kyri k. d. mid-range jumpers here. Is that sustainable. Do you have to play greek. Great defense this year. Right gotta play great defense. Always i always think you have to. Maybe the nets they break that mold this year. You don't have to play great defense. Just play or least give the impression. You're playing defense here. I got to do it. Sound score you. It's rare but that's what the philosophy is right now. But i just saw the article and i started thinking about the three pointer and i don't mind watching good. Three point shooters is when you watch bad. Three point shooters. That's when it drives me crazy. Yes mclovin is ally. The warriors had to add durant for like the slower paced. The playoffs like a mid range. Guy well i mean. He's one of the great scorers of all time drank and shoot three and get to the hoop emmys. He's walking basket. But that three points. I worked for them for a while. Just nothing but threes. But then i didn't really. I don't know if that could have won them for three titles Yeah if durant doesn't get hurt. I mean you can go down you know. Look back on that. Hit the way back machine and all they did was hoist. The reason and it worked for them to a large extent. I have two of the greatest shooters an nba nba history. So it's not like it's a plucky team like the utah jazz and you look at them. They won the title. I got steph. Clay and kevin durant. This are three of the greatest shooters in the history of the game. And i could put clay in steph up there as just shooters durant one of the great scorers in the history of the game. That's a pretty good advantage against any team there. Yeah pulling. I don't know if this has been asked someone's head. Would you rather have in their prime to start your super team steph. Clay durant hardened kyrie in durant. Is that easy when our hard-won assume everyone's in their prime so the golden state warriors three years ago two three years ago. Durant steph curry klay thompson or the current nets. Three everybody's healthy. Yeah i just don't know about kyrie that i'm not honor off the court. Well just kyrenia. I'm just not sure it feels like klay and steph. There's no drama whatsoever. There was drama with draymond in durant because draymond knew that was just stopping through to pick up a title and then he was leaving and i think draymond had a real problem with that but when they were on the same page beautiful as as beautiful basketball to watch the i would take those three because it feels like i have two of the greatest shooters of all time and i have one of the top five scorers of all time ad that you know. Put that together. If one guys off two guys you know what are the odds that two guys would be off and one guy would be on or you had two guys Who were on in one guy was off and you and you got a coach. Who was the shooter. Steve kerr. That's all he did was shoot but i would. I would take that group harden we've seen in the playoffs. It's not good. He's he doesn't come up big in the playoffs. Yes mclovin permission to completely ignore you with a system take. It's too late now. You open the door and caught on me is your bad. Do you really wanna do that to me. Says i shouldn't do it. Go ahead are stephon. Stephan play if they didn't play in that warriors system and my proof. Being steph was not steph with mark. Jackson the coach. So i don't know if you can judge them independently of each other in a way well steph had the ankle injury first couple of years to klay grew up right before very is is a great shooter. If if i put clay in today's nba klay thompson could be even better. If he was out of golden state from the standpoint of he wouldn't share the he would get he would he would be averaging twenty eight points a game. But what if the timber wolves to listen to you and taken steph. Instead of johnny later a chance defa might not have developed the same way you see that that is fair but do i think he would still be great in all star. Yes i do. I mean a lot of down through history. Look at the players. Let's say bill. Russell didn't end up in boston it bill. Russell ended up with the cincinnati. Royals they not bill russell or is he. That's why you saw them play. Okay was he. That he's known as a winner that he was not he. He was had eight hall of famers in the lineup. If the bears drafted. Tom brady like you. You have a perfect situation for greatness a down through history. I mean look at it. Kurt warner doesn't get the chance to play. When trent green goes down he gets the chance to play and then we saw that there was something would've treasuring doesn't get hurt. What if drew bledsoe does not get hit like all of these. What ifs in careers that hinged upon that would've bella stays with the jets. What if bella check in savin stay with the browns like it's just crazy that when you start thinking about it. There is a lot of luck that goes into these these great careers whether it's coaching. What if nick sabin stayed with the dolphins would've alabama was an open like. It's just it's littered with all of this it's crazy. Yeah mclovin i guess. My my point is at hardin. Kyri and kevin durant might be more individually talented but when the three of those guys were coming in in golden state it was like a greater triumvirate if that makes sense. Yeah but imagine. I like the lakers won the coin. Toss with magic johnson. Where we tell you about. If the celtics have gotten tim doug but what magic was going to go to the bowls. So there's a coin toss like that. That's how crazy all of this is but then once you got him what you did with him. Then you got showtime. What if portland taking jordan data. That's that's it's just. History is littered with that that. That's why when you always say well. It's system quarterback there's a lot to goes into that pate man and could have gone to the chargers if the colts took ryan leaf and ryan leaf now. I don't know until it have been successful problems. He would have been successful but they always say. That chargers organization was a mess was yes it was but the nba starts at second half in earnest. Tonight i don't know what that means mclovin in earnest. I always hear that know how about the nba started second half tonight. Yes and as it insulting to like those couple of games that were played last night and you know in earnest means majority of the schedule. But if i'm on the grizzlies spurs or something like that. Hey we're important to which just happened to be one two games from last night ernest where is ernest. By the way that guy ernest goes to camp is there. is there a town called ernest member. When they changed montana. Joe montana that city. They named joe montana. Where is there an earnest by. I heard yesterday some. Nfl free agent was tendered again that i laughed like what other sport do. We use the word tender. He was tendered. By the way. I gotta play some jerry. Jones's comments from the press conference yesterday. It was priceless. The s boy. There's an earnest pennsylvania and georgia. That's the only ones in america. Magin if elway had gone to the colts or elway gun. Play for the yankees. History is rewritten in with all of these. Good like podcasts. Imagining all those differences. I brought that up before. I wanted somebody to do the heavy lifting so i could just take the cliff notes of what they came up with. But what if like you just did a what if podcast or column kind of like a sliding doors you ever seen that movie. The romcom with gwyneth paltrow did i just lose our man card of day. What fight indoors like if she went this way. Her life went when way if she went that way. Her life went out. It's a great romcom. Why did wonder that you know when you take a and or you help. Somebody get a job. I broadcasting students and you help them get a job someplace and then they might meet somebody in that job that turns out to be their wife or their husband. Like what school you go to and you meet somebody there and because you went there or you took a job and you didn't think you were going to get that job or you missed out on a job like it's so it's weird. I believe in fate but there's a lot of luck that goes into this yes. I was bartending in new york spinning my wheels doing nothing in the mid nineties and i worked late because some other guy wanted to leave early bartending and i met a dude who worked three in the morning for cbs sports and we started talking and he goes. Yeah we have an opening a researcher on the nfl today shows like oh i would love to be part of that and they end up bringing me in. I always think to myself if i didn't work late that night. Do i meet that dude. Do i get a job at cbs. Sports it's wild. If i didn't miss out on the job in dayton ohio and then one of feel sorry for myself. And i went to an ex girlfriend in atlanta and the last time there i took a tape into. Cnn and then got hired that day at cnn. If i don't if she says. Hey they're hiring it cnn. I go to atlanta last day. And i have my audition tape. And i'm glad i'm not. I can't get a job at cnn. And i went in got a job week later. I'm doing headline sports at cnn. Yes mclovin do you remember. There was another guy who's going to do what i did for sl right before we were starting bark bechtel. I'll say the news but he got some book project the daytona five hundred there like well pearl off europe. Otherwise this whole thing for me we never would have happened. It was just like a stroke of luck. Dammit i got a bet. Sorry about that yes. I can remember the day we met. Mclovin sports illustrated we were there and mclovin goofy. You were kind of like jittery and talking really fast and your arms are flailing in the air when you're talking and dan didn't remember your name when you walked out of the room because because that one guy he's he's got something and that was the entire discussion and then it kind of morphed into something. That's what that is partially. I was swabbing cool. No you're not you're not you were wacky. Get out of here you were. You don't remember that day polly's betas out. I'm not making it up. i can remember it specifically. It was the same day because while we're waiting for you to be in the room.

Beginning of the problem. Now the two and a half point shot would take over the nba. It would devalue that shot enough but it's still make people shoot will be more in play but not it wouldn't be like a street fight down for two but you could win like one thirty two and a half to one. Twenty nine is is fantastic for vegas vegas with the whole with the hook with the hook. Yes tom and the over under what have fractions like one. Quarter and three eighths crazy with hardened from two and a half couldn't well not in the playoffs. That's cold chris mannix. He's a senior writer cover. The nba for sports illustrated joining us on the program. Nba shut down a year ago. On this day what do you remember about. I remember being relieved for a minute. Because i had been scheduled to do back to back celtics games for local tv there. I just finished writing a story. I was exhausted. I remember thinking like great. You know this will be like a week a couple of days off. I can get back into the flow after kind of a mini vacation. Didn't turn out that way. Yeah when it first happened. And i remember polly texts me said turn on espn and i turned on espn and it wasn't like eleven o'clock at night to watch sports center. It was eight o'clock and you're going wait a minute what's going on. Espn all they got a basketball game. No they're supposed to have a basketball game and then all of a sudden it was basically Oklahoma city drive home safely. And then you realized okay. What's this mean in. Who would have thought that sacramento later on. They add to tell the. Hey there's contact tracing with these officials. And i mean is pretty incredible what happened. What would happen quickly with the nba and then everybody else sort of followed suit. Yeah it was when you look back on it now it. It was remarkable. I remember. I think it was the hawks. Game that turned out to be vince. Carter's last game of his career. There and i remember kind of wondering like you know. What are you guys doing. Why even finishing the game. I mean like the whole referee thing. You were talking about you. Just wonder why didn't just stop short right there and ended but i. I think that goes to show that back then. Nobody believed that this was going to have the kind of impact on the season that had had i remember talking to coaches executives in the days that followed all of them had said look. It's probably going to be about a week for this thing to settle down. Then we'll come back in empty arenas there was an acceptance that they'd be back in limited to no capacity at arenas but no no comprehension that this could wind up shutting down until they can go into a bubble and remember. Lebron said that he's not playing. If there's no fans in the stands and that was i was la for that and somebody asked that he. He was kind of walked into that a little bit where he was. He didn't know about all the things that were going on in that moment when the nba said that he's you know of course he responds. I'm not playing with bands. Play for the fans. Well that obviously changed a very quickly as as the reality of the situation kind of set it. You look back on the bubble and we didn't know it was going to work and you had some players who were adversely affected by it. But i still maintain what lebron and the lakers pulled off is as memorable and as difficult as any team has gone through with no homecourt advantage there a sterile environment. Have we given the lakers enough credit for what they pulled off in winning that championship. I think we have. I'm kind of a tough person to talk to. About the challenges of the bubble dan because sitting in a hotel room. Eating buffalo wings is not all that abnormal for my day to day life. So it really is. Like i say that i mean i sympathize with people that have families and are away from them. That's just not me. And so you tell me i can get wings twenty four hours a day. I'm an visit. Never ending supply handy and less hall like i don't. I don't really do all that but you could see it. I mean when you're in that bubble. And i was in it for two plus months you can see the the mental wear and tear. It takes on players in real time from from the first week where he's kind of like all right. We can do this. We can hang by the pool. No big deal to like the second month when you see these guys walking to the dining hall. Just trudging ed's down not a lot of conversation amongst each other sitting down getting through meal and then going back to iraq. It obviously had an enormous mental toll taken on these guys. So i don't know where you rank it among the most difficult things. Nba team has done to win a championship. But it it's up there to be able to go three plus months and when it's idle. Chris mannix the sports illustrated senior. Nba writer joining us. I saw an article a column and it had to do with. Espn speaking to some several a prominent figures around the nba and that there was a radical proposal that maybe you could limit the number of threes. You attempt in a game. Let's say it was first half you got to attempt twenty second half twenty and then after that everything counts as two until the final six minutes of the game. Are we getting to the point. Is it too much of a good thing. That what the three pointer means to the nba. Right now where we're not getting to that point You can't put the genie back in the bottle and this is what the nba wanted Twenty plus years ago when the ratings were starting to dip. The physicality of the game was causing too many low scoring games. You remember that time dan. You know david stern than nba brass me. They wanted what we're seeing right now. A free flowing game a lot of three point shots. Maybe they didn't want it at the level that we're seeing where teams are just reflexively shooting thirty five forty three points per game sometimes more but this is the trade off. This is what you get the idea that they're going to limit three pointers in a game is just it's as likely as them ultimately instituting before point shot which was kind of a running joke. You know ten or fifteen years ago this. You're you're gonna have to deal with the fallout because this has helped grow the game. I mean think about the most popular players in the game. The most emulated players in the game begins with steph curry. And it goes down to all these three point shooters that have helped. Make the game as popular as it is today. It just it just is what it is dan. You're you're not going to be able to change what the nba's become but is there a really good team who doesn't rely on the three pointer as much as everybody else does. I mean there are teams that do it at a super size level. I don't have the numbers in front of me on which team ranks towards the bottom but every team is going to jack them up at a high level especially in the fourth quarter. We looked in coaches in the nba. Every coach this is what the teach. The best shots are layups. Dunks three pointers. The way that michael jordan and kobe bryant played the game. Every coach would to dissuade them of that nowadays. They don't want mid-range jumpers. They don't want turn around po shots because they have been deemed inefficient layups free throws threes. That is all every coach wants from their team. You might see some numbers dipped here there from one team to another but by and large that philosophy. Well i got. Utah's the number one. Three point shooting team in in the nba. The sixers are the lakers are in the bottom. Five is well now. I don't know if that changes when we get to the post season or later in the season. But you have to be jacking them up. Are you all in on utah. Being a team to beat or you know one of the teams to beat. I don't think you have to be jacking them up to be a championship team. Especially when you're talking about the lakers and sixers who are both Can be elite defensive teams with the personnel that they have so. If you can be great on that end you're fine. I am buying the jazz as a serious threat toward a championship. Because i was going through this over the all star break. There's really nothing the jazz do that. You look at and say. That's not sustainable. You've got mitchell playing at a high level which is a natural progression of his game. Mike conley was not great last year. But this is the mike. Conley dan that we've seen for most of his career. The guy that we saw playing so well in memphis go. Bear to me is a sneaky. Mvp candidate i mean he has become such a presence offensively with this screen setting that. He's a real impact player on that into the floor without shooting the three bed in a leak. Defensive team during quin snyder's time there. Certainly when you get into the playoffs. I wanna see if mitchell can make plays if conley can make place and of game situations but right now. The only question you have is like jordan clarkson continued to be the sixth man of the year type of player or does he revert to being an inconsistent gun unknown. That i'm pretty sold. What the jazz are. Yeah but i can't give rookie bare. Mvp credit if he sets nice screens. Chris of course you can't know why can't why can you imagine that where you're going. What did he do so well man can then okay. Now you're now you're twisting words here like it's not. It's not just as great screen center. He's also the most intimidating defense presence the league since but tombo so. That's a big factor in all this but offensively you ask those jazz players and i've done this like you know what's what's go. Bears influence and he just sets some bone crushing screams. That frees up these guys. It's an impact. Okay never going to be at three point shooter. Dan that's obvious but if he can be a massive screens center that'll impact the office. The lakers can't win a title without a d. Can the nets win a title without k. D. no need. I don't think the lakers frankly can win a title. Dennis schroder for that matter. But that's a conversation for another time and he's been that impactful for them Look the nets are going to test the theory if that you need to be a top ten defensive team championship. They're not going to be that type of team no matter how many guys they sign off the street in the next couple of weeks because they're so dynamic offensively at full strength because they've got three guys which is almost unprecedented three guys that can take over a game in the fourth quarter. They get away with being a middle of the pack or worse offensive team but without durant's without him being completely healthy. There's too many good teams in the eastern conference. I think knock them up. Great to talk to you again chris. I hope you're well. I thought you'd appreciate screen set like a kind of a grinder in your day. I know but i just. I mean it's it's nice. I mean i didn't set screens shooter. So right but you went around them right so you knew the value of a screen. Yeah but you know it. Wasn't you know one of those things where i said. Gosh that guy. She'd he's more valuable than i am. It didn't matter if they were setting screen or not for me. I mean okay. Next on you have reggie miller on. Ask him question. He didn't need screens. He just ran all day. Well you don't just run without getting a screen set for you. That's crazy the re running is you're kind of trying to rub guys off streams and reggie had by the way two of the better ones in the davis twins antonio and dale who just set rocking states. They weren't twins. I know it's called that though. That's i know there weren't twins. I just think you hate the french. I hate the french. I love tony parker. Just him yes rudy. In the go bears. I love. I love rudy. God i'm tune into the next jazz game just to watch him. Said screens got salary. The must see tv. I know i know thank you chris. You gotta chris.

We've been wondering about fate and lock in how that had could have changed sports history when you think about it you know if drew bledsoe does not get hit in that game against the jets. When does tom brady get his chance. What if the saints had drafted patrick mahomes and he had to sit behind. Drew brees for a couple of years. All these what the tampa bay buccaneers held the number one overall pick. I believe this is one thousand. Nine hundred eighty six or eighty seven. Paulie can help me out on that. They decided to take bo jackson. Okay well there is a slight problem. He told that buccaneers. Don't draft me. He refused to play for tampa because he visited the team facilities and that was in the spring. They said it was approved by the cia and it wasn't so he was not allowed to play his final college baseball season at offer. He believed that tampa owner. Hugh culverhouse had done this on purpose so they could convince vo to just play football for the buccaneers. He obviously never played for the buccaneers selected by the kansas city. Royals in the first round of the baseball draft and then he was selected then. His rights were traded to The raiders. i believe. After that. I think it. Eighty seven draft. The raiders took him late in the draft and worked out some type of deal where they took over as writes from tampa. The atlanta falcons had the second pick of that draft magic. The atlanta falcons a southern team acquired bo jackson in nineteen eighty six. That i mean he was a household name in nineteen and he. You know playing sports there and he was great at both but he would have been a hall of famer in either one i think had he decided to just concentrate on that sport but bono's sports one of the great ad campaigns in history. Mclovin what's the poll question. Today we started out with. Are there too many three pointers in the emmy and sixty four percent said yes okay so that means we have to address this. We had to figure it out. I don't know if we do. I don't know what the ratings are or what attendance will be once. We're allowed to have fans that come back. Is it bad basketball. Is it entertaining basketball. You know scoring his up. We love scoring. This is what the nba. This whatever league is trying to do have more scoring more offense. It's like the home run. Is the three pointer like the home run in baseball. That you have guys with launch angle. They go up there. This is all they're trying to do in the nba. You got guys they want to shoot. Everybody wants shoot the three. What are you tired of more home runs three pointers homerun go up. Every year. they break the single season record every year now three pointers every year. Break the record mclovin passing yards and touchdowns to same nfl. It feels like we're okay with that. It still feels like that's difficult to do and you don't have a ordinary people doing extraordinary things. It's the elite are able to do this whereas in baseball you go late. That guy's got how many home runs or that guy is a great three point shooter and it feels like it's a little more random when it comes to baseball and even shooting three pointers than it is. That guy has nineteen touchdown receptions or that guy's thrown for forty two touchdowns right. We'll get phone calls coming up next hour. We will check him. Doug gottlieb is there a chance. That duke is going to get into the tournament with a win against st feels like that feels like that. But if you're kentucky would you go to the nit like these are pressing questions. I have yes mclovin. What i was gonna ask a poll question. Do you want to be an tournament. Yeah but you know some people hate to. I'm kind of a store do cater. Yeah i mean if you hate him you want him in so you see them lose. Make a sixteenth seed. That's what i think would be really spicy. Also we'll hear from jerry jones coming up next hour. Jerry did not disappoint. Because i thought hey if you did a great job with attack you gotta be taken a victory lap. You've not taking a victory lap or at least a victory lap that you've thought he would be taken but we'll hear from dak prescott in jerry jones after that contract with sun Anything else that.

Cat Got Your Tongue?

"The Paul finebaum show podcast has been brought to you by the Capital One sabre card earned four percent cash. Back on dining and entertainment two percent of grocery stores and one percent on all other purchases. Now when you go out you cash in what's in your wallet terms apply. Cried passion, then patterns re of college football leagues here. This is the Paul finebaum show. Best of podcast. Say Hello to you on this Thursday. It is the per se of the free day NFL draft in Nashville. We'll talk a lot about that. We hope you are doing well, but we have some headlines before we get to your phone calls and a number of important gas. It is a night of the draft and in twelve seasons at Alabama. Nick Sabin said twenty-six first round picks. Only twenty one losses. Remember? The year after saving got there, which was not his responsibility. Alabama did not have a single player chosen in the NFL draft twenty-six first rounders later, and they will have a number of them. Two-night? Meanwhile, AOL dot com. Davos weaning takes issue with idea. Clump son plays a league schedule. I wonder where that got started. Right here right here in river city. He did not take cod lead to it. He said we played Alabama three times. I thought it was more like four. Maybe he's talking about non conference. But anyway, Dabbagh was in a he was somewhere yesterday. Where was he Atlanta and got pretty pretty rotated with the suggestion that he doesn't play good schedule. We'll just kind of put it to the test blind resume for those folks on the radio, we got T three three resumes here. One with the strength of schedule at twenty one with five when with fifty six somewhere somewhere one loss records one's a little bit better than the other seventy one sixty six seventy and sixty seven nine hundred fifty two chance to make the college football playoff ones at seventy one percent ones at eighty three percent. The other ones had forty percent pretty easy to figure out that we're talking about Alabama Georgia in clips and little oak, limps and. Does Clemson have an easy schedule. Yes. They do had they performed really. Yes. They they have done that. And they beaten Alabama. And you know, I I really don't think the schedule matters very much by the you know, the schedule can hurt you getting to the SEC championship game or maybe the ACC championship game or maybe to the semi's. But by the time, you get to the finals, you would have had to have played a really good schedule. Yet. There's plenty of time. So I I really don't think I get that debate. Anyway, we'll let you talk about that in a moment at eight five five two four to seven to eight five. Meanwhile, Josh Jacobs opens up about playing for Nick Sabin avoiding the wrath wherever we heard this before. He says, yeah, I can learn any way and I can get coached anyway. But I prefer coach was a little more firm in telling me what to do. And what not to do? That's huge for me. But yeah, the generation is kind south. That's interesting listening to a player from that generation. So they don't really respond well to that. So that's why save is getting kind of soft. He's trying to adapt to a new generation in these kids are crazy nowadays. So what what is okay, hold on a second. What is it? What is? I was reading in talking my way through that. I understand what he said there correctly. Was he suggestion suggesting the Knicks Aven is getting soft? Nick sabin. Okay. Can I go back and look at that again? Because I really don't say I had not seen that before. I read it. And I think I was I thought he was talking about something else. Anywh when he really was talking about saving. So so he's talking about I'm gonna read this again, very slowly without comment. Yeah. I can learn anyway, I can get coached anyway. But I prefer coach who is a little more firm in telling me what to do and what not to do. That's huge for me. But yeah, this generation is kinda soft. So they don't really respond well to that. So that's why sabre is getting kind of soft. He's trying to adapt to the new generation. And these kids are crazy nowadays. Whoa. Someone stopped me was that a shot at saving. I don't know what it was. I'm gonna let you tell me because I don't know. It was a confusing comment nevertheless anyway. Meanwhile, Greg Sankey, the king of the the excuse me, the Commissioner of the SEC. He was at the P meetings in Dallas. And he gave an interview and said he confirmed that Dallas is an option to host the twenty twenty SEC football media days. Are you sitting down? Also in the mix Houston Orlando Tampa. San Antonio Saint Louis Nashville, Charlotte, Reykjavik Oslo, Berlin, and Saint Petersburg, the last five were I was joking. But the previous five I should have been joking about to what is Greg Sankey thinking there. It's been in. Hoover or Birmingham. It was downtown for a while. Then it moved to Hoover. Then it went back. And then it went back again for most of the. Thirty some odd years that SEC media days has been going on. Now, there's a lot of reason why was it in Birmingham. All those years in some respect. It was there to help accommodate the SEC office, which is in that very neutral. City of Birmingham, not close to any SEC school and not partial to any SEC school it moved last year to to Atlanta to try something new Greg Sankey told us a couple years ago. He wanted it to be in Nashville the in Atlanta excuse me the year before but the stadium was not ready. So everything was not done. So they waited a year. It's going back to Birmingham this year. It likely has heading to Dallas. But why would you consider taking it to all these different places? And and and I say that not because it really matters a whole lot to me. I mean, we we are going to be there. Whether it's in Atlanta, whether it's in Nashville, whether it's in Dallas, we'll go to the airport get on a plane, my my contention is there a lot of my brethren and sisters dessert, what's the what's the gender specific for brethren brethren. A lot of my colleagues. I should say it's a big deal for them. If you're a radio station in Birmingham or in Montgomery, Alabama or. Columbus Georgia, and it's certainly cost effective to drive now. Why would you put it in Dallas? That is not a drive. Why would you put it in Saint Louis? Why would you put it in Orlando or Charlotte, North Carolina? Are you out of your mind? I mean, I I'm really serious about this. You know, I don't know. I I didn't hear the whole context of what's Commissioner said. But I do think it's just from my former profession I just think it's a bad idea to to take it that far away. Some people have said, well, we'll differences and make a TV show. Well, yeah, it is a TV show every every minute of the coaches and players are broadcast right here on this network. But it's also an opportunity for a lot of people. Who are not as big as a major network owned and operated by SPN to go there. And to get interviews that are important to them and to their constituency, and why in the world, would you make it more difficult for your core base? Now, I'm sure I'm well aware that Texas AM. Is in Dallas is in Texas. It's in college station, which is about three and a half hours from Dallas. But the majority of the media, it's the SEC media days. The majority of your media. Is concentrated from Florida to Atlanta to Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee. I mean, there's you just draw a big circle. And that's where the majority of people live within a couple of hours, and I'll I'll let other people comment. I really don't know haven't talked to anybody. I just heard about this about an hour ago. But it it just seems like what does the SEC trying to prove by putting it in Dallas by putting they they put the SEC basketball tournament in St Louis last year. Was back in Nashville this year, much, better listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. We had the p meetings where very little if anything was expected to happen based on what Heather dinner is reporting. As exactly what didn't happen. Heather joining us head. They're always great to have you on. We know football season is near when we are talking to you. Good afternoon and. Did anything happen? I guess is my first question. Hello. Hi. Thanks for having me on good afternoon. No, no, nothing happened. You know, they met for two days, and they talked about things like budgets that most college football fans have absolutely no interest in the bottom line is the college football is not expanding. The playoff is not expanding anytime soon, and they are not making any changes to the protocol. Bill handcock executive director reiterated that they are happy with the current four team format and while that they conversations are ongoing not to read too much into that. So okay, we're when we were out in California that I mean that story we I mean, it was like breathlessly awaiting this meeting. They had and everyone was speculating and some news organizations were more. We're doing more than that was that all just a bunch of hot air. Well, I don't know that it was necessarily hot air because they are talking about it. But every single Commissioner will say, it's good business. Principle to talk about things and say can we make this better? Are there ways that we can make this better in as of right now, they agree that it it's fine. The way it is. They think that it's working, you know, but Greg Sankey the SEC Commissioner walked out of the meeting yesterday and told us that Mark keenum, Mississippi State, president his statement, still stands what he said in January, which was we are not ready to talk about this any further any any more seriously than just sort of a reaction to to quell the public does right now. So her there, you know, all these people you're on them you cover them. I mean two days of talking about. This sounds pretty tedious. I I would think they have something more substantive than just blather on about what they've already talked about. About what? So what really happens? Well, you have to remember Paul this is their annual spring meetings. So this is the one time where they sit down, and they go over over budgetary thing to talk about New Orleans, which is going to be the championship site for this season's national championship. They talked about the rankings coming out on November fifth. They still haven't determined the date. There are the sites yet for the final two in this whole rotation. We're talking all the way down to I wanna say twenty five twenty six. So you know, they talked about branding. They talked about extra yard for teachers again, it was it was four pages of agenda from what Commissioner big twelve Commissioner. Bob bowls, be told me, and and very little of it had anything to do with the actual structure of the college football playoff. Now. Rob Molin the committee chair was there yesterday, and he came in. And he was there to answer any question as we're all four athletic directors of participating semi-final teams. So. They were all in their talk about their experiences. Well, they talk with the bowl executive ESPN executive. So it's really two days of grunt work agenda meetings as opposed to. Hey, are we gonna go to six or eight not sitting in there talking about that right now that's college football fans? And and folks like us who are speculating on when and if that might happen. Okay. So listening is probably the best way to to to decipher what's going on out there is there any anything in the winds other than status quo. No. Honestly, there's nothing to win other than status quo as quo Jim Delany. The big ten Commissioner was there. And you know, he seemed just very relaxed with his his pending retirement coming up and decks Warwick, the Notre Dame athletic director was there, and I've talked to him at length about Notre Dame's position and this whole thing. And they're one of the reasons that conference champions championships, don't carry more weight to be quite honest because they don't play in a conference championship game. There wasn't talk in the room about the value of conference championship game. They didn't they didn't even get that detailed about it. So, you know, there's there's talk outside the room when we're asking questions about playing an eight or nine games schedule. You know, we we can talk about that big twelve Commissioner Bob BOS visa. Yeah. He thinks it's a disadvantage to to a certain extent. But it depends on what non conference opponents you play. So there are. All kinds of discussions coming out at different kind of octopus arms about it. But nobody in that room was really there is like talking about those types of things Heather I want to bring up something that happened here. The other day, we had might Griffiths on who you may know, my covers Georgia right now. And I don't want to put words in his mouth. I'll I'll just give you a loose interpretation of what he said he suggested here that Georgia didn't get a fair deal with this committee, primarily because of the F let director he said at Georgia Tech, and obviously at Florida being on the committee. And he he added that they were they were probably not jumping for joy, it's prospect of Georgia being in the fourteen playoff. Again. I realize your reporter, you know, how the sausage is made better than anyone else. And I don't wanna make it out. Like, he was you know, casting. Thing. Dispersions against these people. But he was I mean, clearly he was insinuating. Whether that was something that he came up with or someone that Georgia came up with would you address last year? And and how close you think Georgia really came to getting in the fourteen playoff. They came pretty coach because I where people in the in the room who voted for them who thought that they were worthy of one of those four spots. But obviously not enough. Here's an interesting thing. I've talked about sucker couple of weeks ago. And he said, I was the guy who was on Georgia's staff he said, we shouldn't have been in it why because they lost to LSU convincingly and they didn't win the game against Alabama. And in a way, I was kinda surprised that he was so candid about it. But he's also obviously not there anymore. But there you have a guy on staff saying, yeah, look, we we had our chances. We've lost two games. Could we have done better? Could we have won those games? Maybe probably, but we didn't. And so they lost the chance that they had had they won that that as she championship that game. They I mean, they they knew they were in. They almost you know, had had it booked, but it didn't. So there you have a guy on staff who said we didn't deserve to be in. Well, I'm glad to hear that. Because again, I'm not trying to make one one one writer into the all knowing being voice at Georgia. But I I was really struck by by what he said. And it just seemed like there were others over there saying that. Well, I mean like I said there were people in the room who thought about it. Right. But we also have to remember that two loss team that has won its conference championship hasn't even gotten into same Ohio State was a conference chip that didn't get in it. So to think that a two loss team that doesn't win. It's week title is going to get in it to me it. I it's a stretch to be quite honest. And I think that they would have had been a lot more chaos than the other power five conferences for that really to to happen. But it certainly opened the window. And there was conversation about it in that rivers. No question. Good deal. Heather thank you very much. We look forward to speaking. Again, very soon. Thank. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Glad to welcome back to our program. Justin Moore he was with us couple years ago. And he is back today from Nashville and might as well be in Fayetteville based on what I'm seeing through the screen. They're just in. Are you about to call the hogs or or what good afternoon? Hi, I'm ready to when everybody as long as you'll help me. I will listen I've done it before I've done it rather poorly. So for somebody from Arkansas, I'll definitely takes some some tips. We'll talk about the Razorbacks minute. But I do I know we're still on the verge of of seeing your new record dropping know late nights, and long necks is something very special to you. So talk about putting it together. And and making it happen. Yes. Our fifth studio album, and to be able to say that it's it was the most fun. I had making an album, and I believe it's the best album. We've made is pretty special to be able to say that twelve years into into my career. So can't wait for everybody to hear it. And obviously our first single from it the ones that didn't make it back home is out right now country radio and doing well for us and proud that. That's the the first the people get to hear of it. But can't wait for him to hear the whole thing. We just had a mouthful for somebody who has had his number as many number one hits as you have to to talk about this perhaps being the best. Let's let's talk about the single right now. And I think I can pretty well, guess what? The meaning behind it is. But I'll let you the artists explained. Yeah. Paul. We had a song out almost nine years ago that called it one so far away. Then it taught me how powerful country music is. It's fun to have a number one record a hit songs. It's good for your career. You know, the label throws you party here. And in Nashville, your parents, Pat, you on the Bank till you how important you are. But it's really special when you have a saw like that that that impacts people's lives in a positive way. And it's my hope and my goal, and and I believe that that it's possible that this song has the same type of impact on people. It's, you know, meant to honor not only our servicemen and women, but but all the people who serve our community's, you know, firefighters police officers teachers, nurses at cetera et cetera. So it's it's a so I'm really proud to have to bene- part of routing. And now have it on the radio. Yeah. I mean, I I'm still still think the first time I heard having you talk about the lost friends from high school your Granddad. I mean, I I've rarely heard a country song that that made one thing back more than thou. And so I I know everyone really excited about this in putting a an album together. Is there a method to the madness? There's definitely a method to the madness in it is madness bet, you know, it's I I it makes you anxious, obviously. And and we're trying to do obviously the best that we can do not unlike you trying to put a show together you want it to be the best it can possibly be. It's it's a lot of light nights. And then my case late nights and long. But but it's also a lot of fun. And I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to make music for a living. But but yeah, there's definitely some some sleepless nights as you're putting an album together. Because anytime you you put them out put an album out there. You're putting yourself out there, obviously. And and you know, as artists you, you're so close to this music. And you know, it comes from within me because I write most of what I do. And so you're you're you're certainly kind of white known pins and needles to see what people say about it. But at the end of the day, I I have to make what I believe is the best music I can make and kind of let the chips fall where they may after that, I'm interested because I in this world of social media where you can find out within seconds. What someone thinks whether it's an accurate depiction or not when you get a single out the records dropping in three months or four months how. I mean, I'm not sure which word to use anxious or eager are you to get reaction? Well, the the fun part is we have the opportunity to do that on stage every night even before the album comes out. So I see what the fans are reacting to much earlier on than than when the album comes out and what the critics react to I. And I've never been one who really cares. What critics? Whether they like it or they don't doesn't really faze me one way or the other. I like I said I make albums for myself as long as I'm proud of my body of work, which I am then I can live with the rest of it. But like I said that the fun part of for us as we get to go play songs. And even before we put them on the album, we get to go play them live. So you can go loops that ain't work or you know, or the opposite. Where you go that that that did pretty good for us. So that that to me is is the the best part about it. And we could see it firsthand took adjusted more about his recording. And obviously his songwriting. Well, let me let me change gears because since we had spoken to you last. I've lost track. How many different coaches Arkansas's ad? I know a new in basketball and a new one in football high hopes for both. You're you're you're in Arkansas good bit. So what do you? Out of let's let's start with the football program when you're under Chad Mars. Well, I've had an opportunity to sit down with coach Moore's couple of times meet him be around him. And and believe that he's he's doing a great job. And we'll continue to great job. I tell you. What's exciting about our football program and coach Morris's that I in my lifetime. I've never seen us recruit the way that we are out now. So obviously kudos to him and his staff for forgetting out, and they've done a heck of a job on social media and kind of building up the university of Arkansas from that standpoint. And I think it's contributed to you know, what was the best recruiting class. Like, I said this past year that I've ever seen and on his way to another really good one here. I just think it's going to take a couple more of those classes, and then we'll be able to see the product on the field that that, you know, obviously, we want to see knows interesting. We were there. A for the LSU we can. Justin in even though the at that point and didn't win that game. They played a good game that they were had not one in the conference. The fans supports me seemed as typical as anytime I've ever been to Fe Ville, I mean, the fans really get into what he's doing. I'll tell you. What you're exactly right. What's impressive to me is we're we're we're staring at two and ten coming off a two and ten season. And the hopes as you said before we started discussing the hopes are really high. Everybody's really positive in the state. I live in the in the central part of Arkansas. So I I see it firsthand. And listen to, you know, local radio at cetera and the hopes are really high. Everybody's really excited about not only this year, but the coming years, and I don't know that that's that's necessarily something that that you could save a lot of teams and programs and fan bases coming off two and ten season. So like, I said coach Morris has done a really good job. And in spreading his message. And his message about what he wants to you know, to to make this program about I'm interested because I heard that you lived in Arkansas. And I'm I know a number of artists they lived their various places, but most live somewhere near Nashville is that because you're you're comfortable raising a family in that state versus where you are right now. Yeah. You know, Nashville was really really good to me. I lived in Nashville for almost a decade, and it was just never mind tension to leave home, let alone stay away from home. I knew that I had to be in Nashville in order to get my career, you know, off the ground and going and once we had a little bit of success. And I felt as though it really didn't matter where I I called home, my wife, and I along with our oldest daughter at the time moved back home. And it's been really good for me personally, which I think is really good for me, professionally you know, as artists we're at our best when we're in a good spot personally. And so it was always my intention to move back home to Arkansas where I'm from. And I I live in the town of three hundred people that I grew up in about five hundred yards behind my parents house, which if we need a babysitter, Paul, it's good. If we don't it's not necessarily. As good. I'm curious for goes, listen, I I grew up right across the river from Arkansas. So I feel like I know some of it moderately. Well, I mean, just good people simple people. But I mean, you you live there, and you still live there. But you're an international celebrity now, which it like not so much for you. But for the people that you grow up with knowing that you've made it to such a degree made it so so big. Well, I I think the coolest thing to me is that, you know, everybody's proud of me and proud for me and my family and really happy for me. But when I go back home, I'm just just and you know, that that idiot that. Missed missed too many three pointers whatever during during a conference game. I'm not just in more the country singer. So that's really good not only for me. But I think more specifically and more importantly, it's good for my my my kids. I have four four kids three daughters who are nine seven and five and a little boy who's two. And so the fact that people don't treat them any differently because of a choice that I made to do this for a living is what's most important for me. So it's been really good for for us as a family before you go helped me with something because and maybe we can do this. And other time privately realize we're on television now. But every time I go to Arkansas that somebody asked me to call the hogs, and I I I can you just do do you start low? Hi, how do you do it? It's it's really sample as. Hey, say followed by two more of those Razorbacks. Okay. I'm gonna I'm gonna come on your concerts and come on stage and do that. We'll do it on stage. Love it. Now. Now you beat. Maybe we can get coach Muslim onto do it with. He probably is quite has not quite mastered. It yet. So you need to work on him. I he's more important than I am. Hey, justin. Thanks for coming by. And hope you'll come back again. This has been so much fun for us. I thank you very much for having me. I appreciate all your time. And and as always all the best guess we've picked to listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast couple of hours away from the draft. And who better to talk about it? Then Andy Staples. And really not talk about who will be chosen. But Andy, what are you? What are you? What are you serving tonight at your draft party? The draft. He's actually at Sports Illustrated world headquarters here in New York in letting the in the tests, and I'm gonna try not to burn down the building. But we're going to have some some Theresa dips Patty melts and making my grandma chocolate chip cookies, it's gonna be it's gonna be real good. There might be some stuff and some red solo cups. So if you wanted little second screen experience in the Twitter feed, I now I go to the website, that's dot com. I save cookie to for you. Good deal. Okay. Well, listen, there's no reason talking too much at the draft because it's four hours away. And that's like a lifetime away. I I am interested though, big brouhaha or maybe not a big one. But dabbled Sweeney yesterday was asked about some comments in relation to his soft schedule. He did not respond. Well, did do you think the schedule really plays into this conversation at all? And and I mean, I know in the SEC it might, but I mean if I mean if Clemson had played an SEC schedule. Do you think it would really have made much of a difference? The last couple of constant still would have won a national title last year would have played for the national title a couple of times in the last few years that wouldn't have changed anything. I it's fine out at clemson's getting the ain't nobody Paul treatment. They always looked at acted like an SEC schools getting you like one because that's that was the knock against Alabama forever. Really tight. Nobody paul. And here's the deal the team. That's really good. And it's on top. Everybody's gonna complain that they didn't play tough enough schedule. But the fact of matter is Ethan when it matters, and you don't have to worry about that argument. Yeah. And listen, I mean, they went to college station last year. I mean, they they pretty pretty pretty tough place to go in terms of the trajectory me right now, Clemson is at the top. And we we all know Alabama's right there with them. Do you see much changing right now? Well, I think Georgia is poised to get in that mix. I mean, I so I had the fortune or maybe the yeah. Which end of serving the line judge for the Georgia spring game last week. And I well, I can I couldn't tell you how Jake from did. 'cause I was busy reading my keys is the lion's heads. There are certain things you just can't help. But notice like when that office applying fires off the ball. They're unbelievable this huge they move. So. Well, and I mean, those guys are gonna be blocking for de Andrea swift. They'll be if Amir whites healthy blocking for him Jake from got so much better as a quarterback last year than he was a freshman. Oh, by the way, him taking the national title game. So I think Georgia might be in position to get over the hump. Now. Here's the question. I don't think I don't necessarily think it's gonna be Georgia end. Now Obama getting in the playoffs like they did two years ago. All the time. If Georgia gets over the hump that probably means they're replacing somebody. So that's the question can Alabama hold that spot because Georgia's gotten so close, and you know, last last year they were dominating for three quarters. And then they let it go. They couldn't get over the top, you know, Kirby smart as an onfield tactician. Probably he's learning as he goes Nick Sabin was doing that. At Michigan state when we weren't paying that much attention, and nobody was setting that much out of them. Courage much expected to win every game Georgia he has to learn some of that stuff that Nick Sabin already knows. So maybe you don't do that fake punt to Justin feels on on fourth down. Maybe just leads from in and tried to get that first down. In more on that. Because I'm having just been there as you were you can certainly pick up a lot being on that field being around. No way to know until December perhaps, but your best guess, I mean, I I know that program is behind was was a hair behind Alabama. At least according to the final score. But what will it take? What did they have to beat them head to head? I mean, give us give us the the the the path for Georgia to finally get over the hump. I think they're going to have to beat them head to head. The thing is is your to get to the point where it's playing Alabama head to head. And there's a spot in the playoffs on the line, Georgia. We'll have earned it. I mean, that's that's a rough schedule. They've got to get Notre Dame coming in obviously have Auburn every year. And I am not one of the people who think to Auburn is gonna have a down year this year, anytime, you you bring that maybe the best college football. You probably be pretty good. So they gotta play them. They've got him late in the season. I think I if Georgia can get there, they'll earn it. But from a talent standpoint, they have everything Alabama has I think you're close to Clemson on that front, the you know as good or better than Ohio states, but are better no home on that front. They're in the mix. They just have to do it against Alabama. You know, they won an SEC. I mean, that's the thing. We forget is they played Auburn in the SEC title game two years ago. They they won that game. They won the SEC title. They're not that far away. It's just one or two plays here there. If it go their way, they're going to be in the next. You mentioned Auburn. I can't let you go. But without without following up on that. Because I mean, the schedule is frightening. We know that. I mean, even even playing well defensively, which which you've already alluded to that they still need a quarterback. And I wanted. They're not gonna find one with experience, or how do you how do you deal with the front end of that schedule which includes the neutral site game with Oregon Ed a and m at Florida, and then the the second half is at LSU with Georgia in Alabama at home. You you hope you can ride your defense early until your offense finds it screw, and you know, just going back and calling plays. I I'm I'm for that. I am for somebody doing the thing that made them famous enrich in the first place. And that's that's what I was on that is calling place. Now, I feel like. There's been a disconnect there haven't realized. Hey, this offense has been extremely effective when there's been an effective runner at quarterback. You don't have to find a guy who the NFL scouts or info all over for, you know, Cam Newton's a unicorn you you're not gonna find that guy every year. So I would veer towards the guy that can run better. Because when that offense is really clicking when they're going really fast. The run game opens up the passing game. They just they run their receivers open for lack of a better term because the defense is so scared of what they'll do on the ground. So that they can get that going. The defense is gonna have in those games. So it's really up to Gus and wherever he takes a quarterback to make that happen. Andy, how do we consume what you're doing tonight with the draft? You can go sl dot com. You can watch on that size Twitter feed. At sl. Now, I don't know if you can actually consume the cookies or the Patty melts unless you were here with me and probably have to have the security clearance. But you know, if if everybody's nice, maybe I'll nail it's good deal. Well, I'm sure people were are lining up right now on on on on the Twitter feed, and he come back soon. And thank you notes. A busy day. We'll talk to you very soon thankful. Good stuff. Andy staple live from New York. Sounds like the beginning of a famous show on Saturday night to listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast, Nicole airbag joining us as always great to have her on, Nicole. Thank you very much. I know it's been crazy covering this case. I don't want to just ask you an open ended question about what you've learned. Because we we don't you got to get back and finish your stories, but what what has really stood out this week, especially with some of these football programs being mentioned. What really stuck out especially day? Stay with a lot of video played of these meetings that were secretly recorded in Los Angeles hotel room with berries in college basketball coaches, and you know, obviously urban comments made about football coach to basically what this is is kind of. What y'all imagine this stuff looks like younger valley of college sports, but to actually sit and kind of an watch these videos and watch the interactions and the cash in an envelope that handed to the coaches like that has been pretty jarring. Even even though you expect him though, you think how business gets done. It's been just interesting the way that it will all has unfolded. And just kind of how matter of fact, everyone has been throughout the whole process about that they need money, and that other people have it in that other people in a couch resources, which is date and there's puzzles, and I entirely there. But just this idea that in order to compete. And and can compete in recruiting against blue bloods at the highest levels that you have to have something to pull out of your back pocket, the end, and that, you know, rec- coaches of different programs like the Clemson basketball programs of the world TCU Creighton, like not we're not talking about like, you know, if you could just doing this. But you're skiing what they think they need to to compete, and that they have the perception. And they're talking about it. So matter of fact, that this is something that is just so widespread in the sport. So it's what we thought. But it it's still interesting to watch it play out on a screen in a courthouse. Listen. I mean, I I mean your reporter in I doubt or maybe maybe you are shocked by some of this. I mean, we all know college athletics is a cesspool. Although, you know, we we we we're subjected to listening to administrators, you know, paint such a rosy picture all the time, but is any of this or how much of this? I should ask is prising to you. Yeah. Not much of it. Surprising. And obviously, you know certain elements of this case has been news has trickled out over the last year and a half as well. But, but you know, it still is interesting to see kind of how the sausage is made. You know, we're talking about you have mardi Glazer who this form of financial advisor related that testifying. You know that with watching video that this this pocket that album of cash has six thousand dollars in this person's getting thirteen thousand and this person's going four thousand dollars a month because they're going to always have top ten type caliber players every year. So that's going to be an ongoing relationship. And now, they should have a monthly retainer all of that stuff. It's pretty interesting and kind of demarcation of who is worse time who's not because I think he's leaving today. Obviously, you know, you've seen. There's there's a lot more schools in has been mentioned today that were Roque into it because they had meetings rechristened. Doc ins in Las Vegas. And basically another thing I learned is just because some of these coaches out there aren't if it's for lack of effort, the these guys are trying and William they're saying, I'll do what you need. But then the funds guys at the money are saying, I don't think that you know, they're going to have the caliber player that's going to get a return on our investment that we want. We wanted top ten we want a lottery pick in one year two years. Whatever it is these guys aren't that? So it's really interesting to see kind of, you know, those those dividing lines, but here ritual question, I mean, none of physics terribly surprising. But I think some some of team sausage gets made is, and and you open gotta think that there's obviously step beyond this where you know, there there is that, you know, they're not going to necessarily get caught or they're six degrees of separation for whatever, you know, message someone else's using even more creative than this on. But it still is worth, you know, exploring and explaining in kind of being how. How in this particular circumstance? He's guys were trying to get this done, Nicole a realize this is still going on. And there's there's more to come. But when it's all over, and the NC double A is forced to have to do more than just sit in the back of the courtroom who is the most vulnerable or is anyone? Well, I think that's that's the big question that I've had throughout all of this is is sort of, you know, obviously, you have the government using subpoena power, and and you know, able to compel testimony from people and they're up at the NCAA. You know, can't has it been able to get and I sort of. From what you know, the federal government has pain or what they can use. Even maybe that was, you know, in a testimony suppose someone dead during one of these trials in order to punish people. But right now, it's so early in. It's really hard to tell kind of how the heavily is gonna come down on this. I think, you know, the reaction the commission to fix college basketball and some of the recommendations that are supposedly being implemented this summer. You know, there's a lot of people thinking nothing is gonna change the recommendations that were proposed aren't going to do anything to fix this the Cecil still to this people are just going to do things in a different way. So, you know, I I would imagine that the end level. I would feel pressure to come down on on these schools in in investigating do think, especially because we've seen some of the schools and coaches involved in mentioned in this up. You know, have retained their jobs, and and not much is necessarily happened to them from a school punishment standpoint. If I really have no idea, I do think it is a little bit too early to call. But I'm most curious to see kind of what information that the federal government has been able to get Wilby NCWA then able to use when they're doing out punishment. I'm not entirely clear about what they're going to be able to pull so much before this began was about Shawn Miller, and we'll wait. And then they were both allowed not to have to testify. Certainly Miller has come up pretty prominently already. I don't know. I I'm not sure if Wade has what's your best guess on on those two in particular ending up having to sit in sit in the witness box in this courtroom. Yeah. Not going to, you know, the the defense attorney, you know, try to make a case this morning that because on the was mentioned and in mentioned often yesterday that they would like the judge during consider that and he pretty much shot it down. So, you know, unfortunately, we won't we. Won't get any either them kind of on the stand testifying under oath which could fascinating, obviously. So, you know, right now, you're still being like we've been watching videotaped and listening to wiretap conversation, and you had people referred who conversations. They've had with like yesterday's big news was with Christian Dhaka's talking about, you know, his his, you know, again, some of it could be bragging, we don't know. We don't have the other side just cruising it at this point. But talking about what his conversations with China Miller worked out, and what Shawn Miller had told him, you know, you've had will waive name will waive name mentioned yesterday. When there was a list of coaches that Christian doctrines that were he's guys that he felt comfortable approaching that might be receptive to here this kind of payment, and and kind of influenced system that they were trying to create, but it doesn't seem like either of them are going to have to take the stand. You know? Which again is totally after judge. And and and if you just put them here, but certainly would have shed a lot more light for for those of us who have a lot of unanswered questions about their roles in what they've been accused of finally, Nicole, the the other day a number of schools were implicated, primarily Penn State, but Alabama just a long laundry list of football, schools were mentioned. And I I'm not there. You are his anything more come around on that. And do you think on what was said anything could possibly happen? I realized the statute might be long gone on all this. But I'm I haven't talked to anyone other than you in the courtroom. Yeah. I mean, I think that, you know, the the statue of limitations has an interesting point. So it was kind of just big mentions or coaches who moves on to the there was how pan comment by the Clemson basketball coach about football program, the resources that they have and how they get stuffed on and kind of keep in tight civil who's been kind of these these comments made about football. And I think you know, you, and I know and everyone knows not just basketball that had visited the dome and ended up fifth of and immature system where there's a lot of incentive to have a black market, and do you feed an frontal money into them into the towards the players or coaches who could influence these players. So nothing's anyone was apprised at football is mentioned he'll kind of the general way come up vagueness to it. And just again, kind of just go that's probably doing football, you know, kind of approach to how. Been brought up. I'm not sure that anything will necessarily come of it. But certainly, you know, I'm sure you know, Clemson football fans did not necessarily enjoy that. They got a mention in the the college hoops corruption trials today and just to be more specific on that. I mean, they were talking if I if I remember correctly about Zion who lived down the street, and it was just a a reference that you know, cl- you can get done here. But you look at look at the football program, and how successful it has become is that a fair representation. Yeah. It was the bene- close coach was saying, you know, he was talking about why you wanted to know the people you're dealing with. And he said, that's why football so successful. If you do it news source that Clemson really can't keep everything tight. So it's a relationship people around him, and then actually mardi blazers former financial advisor what then ask you know, what he took that mean, and he he referred to boosters. So yes, he's projecting that as well. But worker has been going gonna work that has been used to a lot of different things in this trial. Especially today, you've heard it no Duke has resources are killing kept. He plays at resources, which is I think intentionally vague and a lot of people who work in this underbelly of were pool to find that a lot of different ways. But that that's the context in which it came up for for concentrate ball today. Nicole many. Thanks, always great to catch up with you. And look forward to talking to you soon. Enjoy. Well, forget that endure the courtroom. Thank you very much. All right. Thanks so much. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. It's been a pretty quiet show. Would you guys not agreeing?

We'll go ahead and reveal if Isla are you ready? Not really. But if you want to say to head an end the suspense because it's been reported before. I make. What about it? When you have make you the full day foolishness. You're right about that. You're have got it. Meanwhile, by the way, it's being reported by one of the one of the eight million Clemson websites that the board of trustees at little Clemson Lillo. Clemson is about to give new contracts for Davos weaning. He he made six point five million dollars a year last year, and it looks like he's going to get some more. Oh, absolutely. Because it's not easy coaching. Lillo crimson. Got into who got implicated today and that trial in New York. Insinuation was that they're not gonna the rules little. Oh, clemson. I I don't believe that. Because that's always been an honest school. If Tae to listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast talking to match stench comb that his playing days and twenty years ago man want to go back to talking about it may go because we we had a brief conversation during the break, and I want you to share those I was asked this trial and New York gift between college basketball and college football. And I I would like you to elaborate on that. Because their college football has its issues, but leased as of this hour things could change over the next five. Sure as we saw three years ago with Laremy Tunsil. It doesn't seem to be as much of a cesspool as as basketball. Why I think there is a point of distinction in that when you look at this what's transpiring unraveling in college basketball. Is the corporate involvement? And I just don't know where the entry point is the point of value would be corporately speaking for corporate brand to pursue high school football player. I don't think it's a function on football has higher mores. I don't think that basketball's irretrievable in that regard. Although there's a lot of work to be done by do think that the I think the most distinct element is not enthusiasm. It's not I think the opportunity for transgression or impropriety. I think it's that there is not really a reason for a brand a corporate entity to wonder. Because I I mean, his contracts are going to be emits. Yeah. Where I'm trying to think in in recent memory, a college football player that would I mean, there've been valuable college football player, no doubt. And ultimately, they will become valuable Cam Newton does a lot of endorsements others others have done. So but not there's not a standalone they didn't come out of high school. Like that though. I think that's the biggest point of distinction is that the awareness of the individual in basketball, and it's a function of the sports. They don't have a cage in front of their race. It's less of a collective, you know, there's five players on the court. You can run clear out plays and one guy can dominate a game. You can't do that in football. I think all those things adds to. I think what we're seeing unfortunately happening. And thankfully, I think that it's being unearthed in basketball. It's unfortunate, no doubt. But the hope will always be that what will come of all this is not necessarily a cleansing. But some level of progression towards a model that works that will eliminate the steering of kids to certain schools just for the the embellishment of their personal brand for somebody to sell. She there's almost a model that does work and just let them go straight to the NBA. They could do that. Well, and I and I will say this. They don't have to play college basketball, right? Go play in Europe. Go play in China for your to. I don't. But you do not have to play college basketball. There's nothing in the arrangement with the NBA that requires them to do that. However, I will say this you go play in Europe and China, and your brand is going to take a hit versus playing at a Kansas at a Kentucky at a Duke or wherever and I'm not implicating any of those programs. Those are the blue blood basketball programs. And of course, there's a lot of cameras in eyeballs on them helps that brand a lot of cameras in eyeballs on the draft tonight. And I know you'll be talking about it later on. I have. I mean, it's hard to keep up with all the rumors. But it seems like I think how Murray is that. Niche that it seems like that. I mean, it's amazing that some years. You don't really know. I think what was it last year that we didn't know before? I can't remember. But yeah, there's always a cushier we make it more interesting. It seems like we know all although it's era Zona still playing it somewhat coyly that it just seems as if they are the only reason why calamari will go number one which to me kind of calls into question if that's the case. And you're the only one that would covet him in that spot. Is there not opportunity to maybe leverage that big and get him later? And then of course, you run the risk of what's thought to be a perfect fit for your quote unquote system or would be system because we haven't seen it on the rug yet under cliff Kingsbury no longer being available. But that's remarkable that only in in America that still that cliche. Can you get fired by a middling college football program, Texas, Tech and end up and NFL head coach making the first pick in the draft. It's a beautiful country. Isn't it? I mean, it's it's phenomenal. In fact, they've got history, of course, Kingsbury in collared Larry with their time. It takes to say them when Kingsbury was off. It's a coordinator cower Murray because I still can't get over. And I realized a lot. I mean, I'm not dismissing this year. It was it was phenomenal. But this is a guy that went to am because of his dad, and there was so much interference. With all those five star quarterbacks on the roster, and he finally willed his way to start and it didn't work, right? And you know, ends up in Norman Oklahoma, which there there's worst places to which is where everyone goes has. We've learned kind of counts in Haiti Jalen hurts. You know, get your get your suit ready for draft day. He's a tremendous athlete. Yeah. I heard some commentary today that thought was somewhat interesting that supposedly, and there's so much smokescreen and posturing that comes out of this time of year, especially where you're trying to depress. A guys by to maybe grab them lower at cetera. But. You know, if he doesn't go number one would it would it bother him. Would he feel slighted and now we'll baseball all of a sudden become more prominent either way, whoever takes the guy they're going to have to address that issue. This quarterback is not tailback. Bo Jackson played for the Kansas City Royals, and then showing up and playing for the LA raiders is totally different from. Hey, go play baseball for a little while. And then just plug and play quarterback at the NFL level doesn't work that way. They're going to have to have that addressed. I was amazed. That was even a topic of conversation. You brought that up because I've been around long enough. I covered the nineteen Eighty-six draft. And Bo Jackson told the Tampa Bay bucks. I'm not I'm not playing for you. He was upset with the owner. Hugh culverhouse. They had picked him up when he was playing baseball for Auburn in a private plane and it cost him his eligibility. He had to he had to miss the last couple of weeks of the season. And he was really rotated about it. He kept he wanted to play baseball. He said, I'm not playing for you. I they draft him. And he would any ended up playing baseball a couple of weeks later. He he signed with the roles and you talk. I mean think about it. I mean, how what an ill-fated franchise that was at the time you draft the first player, and you know, and he doesn't play for you is that the reason why in two thousand and four when I was with the bucks they were in the same prairie trailers next to him. I I don't know if Culverhouse owns the team back. I think it had transferred ownership by the same place those same facility. I mean, it's it's stunning to think about that. Well, imagine. Yeah. You're exactly right. And you can think where how important that pick is and the amount of time that we've all spent discussing how you're going to actually allocate that pig and the investment that you're going. To make and how they could be even an inflection point for an entire franchise. And then to have nothing to show for it. And there is no way you're not going to get a compensatory pick because the guy went and played baseball. It just doesn't work that way. The other teams can be like tough mentioned a figure that on the front end shouldn't have send your your private plane in messed up his ability. But that's how I mean for anybody. Who knows Bo things VO never got over that. And he the the the sad part for Bo. I think if he had only played baseball he would be he would have gone down as one of the greatest major league baseball players of all time. No doubt. And well, look how many guys do you know that could be an all star. And an all pro. Yeah. There's just not that many. You know, Brian Jordan was one of the best dual sport athletes. Not a lot is spoken about him played safety for the falcons played outfield for the Braves. But when you think about dual sport athletes, any Michael Jordan with the Birmingham Barons. No, it's it's Bo Jackson in it really a chance for the the guy playing up in Syracuse right now and. And. I guess he could tell me quadruple is batting average. Is that what's going to happen? Heck of a football player the great football. Yup. And so are you twenty years ago? Even though you over remember anything about it. We have the video, and it's pretty embarrassing video. We just put a picture of you on Twitter that you look like a plow. Boy, do I now did you it does it does it have? How many chins do? I have in that photo. Yeah. At your high school, prom, or I can't quack can't see it that well from over here, we all I'm gonna pretend as if I can't comment kit. Matt will be with us. He'll be he'll be on your later won't be with us. We're done Matt. Thank you very much. Always fun. Thank you. For listening to Paul finebaum show podcast.

I got it click bait list, sham. Oh. And Pat, sings, along with buffer music fun. Week is good stuff. That's we had heck of a weekend here. As far as the weather was concerned, just man. Crazy yesterday. We went into church. I, I missed the whole thing. But it was just kind of windy and rainy where we were was, where's our hail where you were. No super big wins and Neil, we were on the edge of it. Yeah. Where we live and got nothing but wind thirty miles away in Dallas. Was armageddon? Yeah. Some some bad stuff happened. All we had was an umbrella blue indoor pool. Our big umbrella blew into the deep end. And it took me ten minutes, yet it out ticket ten minutes to get it out. That's rough man. It was rough a bull. It's right in Brel out of your so we had a bad really screwed up your day. I bet it did it really did. But man, a north Dallas office building. Oh, gosh. Look, these windows on this building. So a little hail damage there. Look at that. So that's what happens when HALE gets blown into glass by NASA wins wind cheese. I mean that's just a nearly every window on the side of that building out. Yeah. Almost, and then of course the worst of it. There was at least one dead in a crane collapsed downtown. Really, really awful. The, the crane fell into a building into an apartment building. And you see it there. Jeez. Yeah. Billboards blown down all over the place as well. Love field has a big one down. There was one in downtown Dallas at fell. Just that was just that was that was freakish. Man, how it was just it was con-. Then it was seventy plus Montera Windsor, saying the crane, the winds up where the crane is that high probably eighty five miles an hour, kind of like a small tornado. And then back to being calling it was nice by the time we came out of church, so weird youthful. I mean it was really nice. It was mild wasn't humid. Weird. It was a weird day. And my wife was like, well the the storm. What's what's storm? I didn't see in sear heritage storm. Completely isolated from it when we're in and miss the whole thing.

It's the letter I then target pro dot com. It's I target pro dot com. This is bad great. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three and Pat unleashed on Twitter. This is kind of interesting US, National Park Service just quietly removed a warning of glaciers being gone by twenty twenty will because it's twenty nineteen and they're nowhere near gone. So. Well, I mean, there's still time, it's about six months. Yeah there's still time. Yeah. They completely if they completely melt in the next six months. Okay, willie. My underwear. I will eat my underwear write it down. Write that window. Glacier, national park which I love I love glacier, but I can't believe they're playing into this bull crap. Yeah. Higher than average snowfall though, in recent years, upended computer model projections from the early two thousands that they based, its claim glaciers will all be gone by the your twenty twenty again, these computer models are wrong every time the case in point yesterday, with Dallas, okay, they said, oh, you might see a spotty shower this weekend. You know, blah, blah, blah. No big deal, MO, my gosh. It was a very big deal for the Dallas Fort Worth area. They can't predict the weather just that afternoon and literally supposed to believe him twenty years, thirty years, one hundred years of the future. You kidding me? It's ridiculous. On. So. Glacier retreat in glacier, national park speeds up and slows down with fluctuations in the local climate. These though, signs were based on the observation prior to twenty ten glaciers were shrinking more quickly than a computer model predicted. They would subsequently larger than average snowfall over several winters, slowed down that retreat rate, and the twenty twenty eight used in the National Park Service, display does not apply anymore. Or in other words, our weather goes in cycles as we've set a billion times here. The weather warms up it cools down. Our weather is cyclical. And yet they want us to panic. Why? Because somebody's making money from this among them. Al Gore and panic equals control to becoming up climate billionaire right now. Yeah. So now they've changed the signs the display warning when they completely disappear, however will depend on how, and when we act, the total area of glacier, national park covered in its icon glacier, shrank seventy percent from the eighteen fifties to twenty fifteen from the eighteen fifties to twenty which had nothing to do with climate change. The eighteen fifties until I don't know nineteen seventy. When did they start babbling about there were actually talking about an ice age in nineteen seventy? So you got to say about eighteen fifties to the nineteen eighties. There was no climate change. It's unbelievable. Melting began at the end of the so-called little ice age when scientists believe one hundred forty six glaciers covered the region opposed to twenty six now. USGS says on its website glaciers could all disappear sometime between twenty thirty and twenty eighty now depending on how much warming occurs. Geez. As recent years, demonstrate, however, glacial melt can be slowed by heavy winter snowfall, it can also be reversed. You think the glaciers of always been there? No, they've been completely melted in the past, and then they come back, and they melt. And then they come back. Meanwhile, manmade climate changes at immediate concern meeting, a global warming, apocalypse appears increasingly likely, however, the planet's long term prognosis is even more dire. Here we go, because the sun will run one day run out of fuel and expand most likely destroying the earth most likely in Amir, five billion years, most likely that scares me five billion years from now, the earth could be destroyed by the sun. Not my problem. Nope. Care. Nobody. I know we'll have a problem with the one. I know. So what they're planning to do. Now is move the earth to a wider orbit to escape. The fiery oblivion that, that the sun is going to cause. There's an engineer who's outlined several theories for escaping. The sun and changing our orbit. Can you imagine not a pair of our orbit? Can you imagine how how dumb that would be how devastating to the earth that could be my gosh? Oh my gosh. This isn't a parody website. You're reading this now. It's amazing. No, that's crazy. Come on, man. It just when you think it can't get any more dick Yetlis. It does scientists know the sun will one day change from its current state to a white dwarf star far larger than its current size. And this expansion will eventually reach earth's orbit rendering. It totally uninhabitable. In around five billion years from now. You don't think so they're trying to they're trying to find an answer a solution to this problem? Now, when I don't think our technology might be a little bit better. Five billion years from now. Like, in the in the article, it's it actually says it's somewhat likely that technology will be will be better in the future than it is today to deal with this problem. In five billion. Look, what's happened in the last five years think of five billion if we were to survive think of five billion years of technological advance. I mean it's crazy to even think of trying to solve a problem down down the road that stinking far. Now, you know that everything is gonna change by that. But they're planning ahead. You gotta give them that they are. They are planning ahead. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three the field of democratic presidential candidates starting to settle into tears. There's a new Iowa poll out. Biden still leads the pack, but Elizabeth Warren and beat Buddha judge are kicking into gear twenty four percent of I was likely democrat caucus-goers say they would vote for, for Biden, he's their first choice. Okay. Bernie Sanders is the first choice for sixteen percent. So twenty four to sixteen right? Behind him is Elizabeth Warren at fifteen and Pete Buddha. Judge at fourteen. I can't man mazing. That's amazing Beto on there. I mean, come on Beto. I'll bet skyrocketing two percent. He skyrocket all the way to two percent two percent. And I believe everybody that plans on voting for him. And I o showed up to hear him speak yesterday. Waterloo seems like it. Yeah, we have that picture of spoken to church yesterday and not a lot of people showed it to dozen people. I make it. I made it, it can hold a lot more than that. Wow. That's that said. But funny at the same time. Yeah, I mean it is to the point where you almost feel bad for him now almost almost, but not quite boy. I mean think about this. He was the guy who had that reporter foam around member. Boy, you're like a rockstar here. Yeah. Two months ago. And now he's virtually gone. I, I mean I guess he could turn back around John McCain did in two thousand eight but I don't see it happening for Beto. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three.

I love this story about this woman who stabbed herself in the stomach three times, because she she can't live in Trump's country anymore. Oh, that's a good reason to. Yeah. Yeah. Take a knife to your self. Right. So she stabbed herself stomach multiple times. I she lived. But she said, I'm tired of living in Trump's country. I'm tired of Trump being president stabbed herself. Okay. That's a little severe if you hate Trump, what is it? He has done to adversely affect your life. I'd really love to know. You know, I I'd love to hear from people what specifically Trump has done to affect your life so badly, a name one thing named one, right? You've suddenly been denied one thing that has hampered your efforts to find happiness. I mean, even if you live in Alabama, you could say, well, he took away my constitutional right toward a portion will first of all. It's not a constitutional right to have an abortion. But if you can show me an abortion clause in, in the constitution why else, which might position right now, ten become and become pro choice. If you could show it to me show me, the abortion clause in the constitution, but Secondly Trump had nothing to do with the Alabama law. So you can't blame him for that. Well, he's inspired a culture of anger toward women and writing now. No. That's a states rights thing states had the opportunity to change their laws and they did. But what is Trump done to affect these Democrats so much that they hate him like this fascinating? Yeah, it's a sickness and illness, it even becomes more fascinating when you think of it in the context of they absolutely loved him three years ago. Yeah. They did. Yeah. You just slept. That are on the back of his name and all of a sudden he's enemy number one. She's well and beat their beloved Hillary who wasn't all that. Beloved actually. Yeah. Democrats look in the mirror, and admit you weren't really that big of a fan of Hillary. They have to. They have to admit that because otherwise should be president of the United States right now and she's not so fortunately, she's not looks like we have voted the, the tariffs being placed on Mexico. There are responding pretty well. We worked out a deal apparently with them to avoid the tariffs. So. It was going to slap a five percent tariff on all Mexican goods starting today. Under the deal Mexico agreed to expand its policy of taking back migrants. From violence ridden. Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador. They will also use their new national guard nationwide to crack down on illegal immigration. They've already put them in place. Yeah. In particular, along their southern border with Tamala. So we actually kicked into gear to actually do something, which is great because they need to needed something already by the way, so it's on doors. It's soda El Salvador they need to fix their own country. So people don't feel compelled to leave by the thousands and tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands, there's going to be nobody left in their countries. Not too long from now, if they don't fix the problem there, if they don't stop the corruption and the violence, she's make your own country, livable for your own citizens about that. What a concept. Van. And of course. Illegals continue to be treated better than our own citizens here in this country. TSA agents have been allowing illegals to board flights and travel around the country, without ID. According to the union, national border patrol council which represents border patrol agents TSA employees to airports in Texas have allowed migrants to use a notice to appear form. As ide- to board planes. So they they're using them for something. They're not using the veteran come back to court. She. Border patrol agents say themselves witnessed migrants being let through with the form at the El Paso, airport and spokesman for the union claims to have been told the same things happening at the Laredo airport. Now is that when there is that only when they're being accompanied by ice agents, or border agents, or can illegals, use this form, anytime they want to board a plane. It sounds like they're moving about the country with the us promise to appear. That's better than having a ide- card at this point. 'cause if you can't get that, at least you've got this promise to appear that's allowing you to travel from state crush more. I can't. Remember when they used to be able to use their Mexican consulate card for all sorts of identification issues in Houston years ago. That's the same kind of thing. And we used to joke that, while I've, I've got my blockbuster video card disaster at me access. Now, people like, wait, what? Wait, what's BUSTER, video guards blocked? What is that never heard of any think, such as how quickly that has happened? She's I mean that was that was huge inner culture now completely gone by now. It's a joke in the marvel movie, captain. Planet or captain whatever name, Merrick oak captain marvel whatever. Captain planets the nego freak right anyway. Yeah. Because she lands in a that's right. Like, oh, that's old school. That's obviously long ago. It was kind of fun to see it, though. Little nostalgic maybe a little weepy that all look that I remember those days when getting a nice movie that you hadn't seen yet that was somewhat recent. Bring it down a fifteen point buck on a hunting trip. Yeah. You'd loiter around the front desk looking at that cart. We bring it back. What are you bringing back? Oh, not what we're looking not what we were looking for. Holy times times. Now all you have to do is download it. And three seconds later. You watch a video at your house. You didn't even have to move to return it. You don't have to do squat with it. You know, there's no late fees out so great. Man, I was gonna say, yeah, you're right. All you have to do is pick up your remote and some cases, if you're remote is within shouting distance, you only have to do that because some of these remote say it just say it. Unbelievable boy. Yeah, we stayed at a hotel this weekend. And I've not seen this, this has been happening for a while. I just wasn't familiar with it, but you could log into your any of your accounts like net Netflix, who whatever in the hotel room that was once. Yeah. Yeah. And then it clears your formation when you check out so no one's going to be using your scrape setup. Yeah. Man technologies. Great sometimes off it. I love it. Would you like to go back? I wouldn't. Would you wanna go back to blockbuster, and Hollywood video, I don't want to if we can have the same technology, we have today with the common sense of society. That would be that would be nice. Unfortunately, we can't have both. So. We, we chose we chose what we what we what was more important to us. The convenience, give us a convenience and you can throw commonsense right out the window. And that's what happened. That's where we are. All right in Las Vegas. A one speaking of TSA is suing TSA. She claims she was forced to remove.

And again, if one of these Democrats wins, all bets are off. I mean you think things are bad. Now, just wait. It just can't happen. We cannot we, we've gotta get we've got to be so active here and activate all of our friends and relatives and everybody, you know, who has any kind of commonsense and tell them, they cannot vote for any of these Democrats. She's what a nightmare triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three you know what else can be a nightmare selling or buying a home.

Welcome to great data with us on this Monday. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three. Pat unleashed on Twitter. I can't get over this Las Vegas. Woman's story in Tulsa, TSA strips are naked checks are genitals and makes remove a feminine. Hygiene product, this toes airport, or Las Vegas is I think she was visiting from Tulsa. Right. Las Vegas woman is soon. Yeah. She's she was into my bad. Don't test me Keith, a sir many times, do I have to tell you apparently not enough, not enough, at least once more? Uh-huh. So can the TSA get any worse than this? Don't tell don't tempt them. I know I know they're already feeling is up. But every opportunity, they're making grandma's stripped, naked. That's disgusting is just despicable. Dopp the madness win. Can we stop the madness with his TSA stuff? It's not keeping us any safer and then you're allowing illegal aliens, you don't know anything about we don't have any documentation, we don't know who they are know why they're here. We don't know their background. We don't know what they plan to do in the future, and you're let them right on through. And there's reports in some cases, they just avoid the TSA altogether with their cool. Promise to appear. You're just don't know what they're going to do. And they get here we absolutely no. They promise to appear in court, right? They, they make a pinky promise, so we know and in a full ten percent of them, keep that promise. It's almost at high. Well, yeah. So last week I saw the nine out of ten don't show up this week. It said forty percent. So I don't know which I mean at your hearing, these statistics all the time and somebody's got into Jenin. So they find a different way to figure it. I guess. The way it was put was forty forty percent of them. Never show up in court. So I don't know what the ninety percents detested was of they just missed that next appearance, I don't know. And you gotta think if you're a judge, and some hapless illegal immigrant shows up there and actually fulfills their promise to appear. You gotta be like soft spot. Yeah, you're one of the ten percent, wouldn't you feel pretty good about them. Thanks for expecting our laws, rush day. Right. Well, okay. Yeah. You tried to sneak in here and that's why you're court first place. She didn't respect it initially thinks respecting ish. At least you had some respect somewhere for this nation. It sovereignty appreciate that, but make you king of the country because we that never happens. I w king of the country. Sorry. All right at paddock. We got this from the Steve forty-two. How did they measure glacier size in eighteen fifty because the story was at glacier, national park? The glaciers have been shrinking since eighteen fifty have the yeah. Did horses pull weather satellites? Yes. That's how we know. Oh, super super long ropes didn't know then just pulled him along to the satellites and it wasn't that hard on the horses. Because in space, the, the satellites didn't whale that much. Sure. Right. So you learn something new every day on unleash. Right. Right. Cool eight during the eighteen fifty s called they want their glaciers back. Come on packed, Amy. What's her face on the woman stabbed herself, because she doesn't wanna live in Trump's country anymore. When will the ninth islands? And it's a really good Mushin. Yeah. We need to our needs to be a three day, waiting period on butter knives, and about a seven day, wait on anything sharper. And in fact, I say Bannam that was going to say seven days, it'd be generous. Also, if you hate Trump that much, why not just move to Canada. I think she should sue CNN for Trump derangement syndrome? It is true. If you have you had that kind of emnity for the president. Why would you live here too? I mean why? Andre walled tweets to the woman in Florida who stabbed herself, because she couldn't live in Trump's country Cuba's into far from you. Oh you might change your outlook after a few days on that island. Good thinking, but by. I like to if I was king of the country. I think I didn't force that rule. You hate it here so much. But by get out. The TSA ditch ration- from small mouth bass Kurt perfect example of how a government fears its own people more than any foreign aggression. And our government is even more afraid because we still retain the right to bear some arms at least. But, you know if if you don't examine grandmothers like this to this extent where you make her get naked and. More. I'm going to say okay, she fooled us. I didn't see that one coming night. Didn't see an eight year old or seventy year old grandma blow up a plane full of yet. If the tampon bomb, actually worked, we'll be the first to say you know what? All right. I pol. Yeah, I was wrong. Right. I would none of us autumn on bomb coming. So, so. TSA tried. It's it's literally sickening literally sickening. How do you even how does that even occur to you is really? Okay. Hold on. If you are in the TSA or connected someone in the TSA, I want to see in print, the manual that says, yes, they have that you have to have a passenger, remove the feminine hygiene products before getting on a plane. I wanna see that in print because a seventy year old grandma's hip replacement set off the alarm. Okay. Well, it's hip not or hoo-ha. There's a difference between a hoo-ha in hip, maybe should explain that to the TSA. Maybe that's the problem. Maybe they just haven't right been educated. Maybe they didn't go to school or something and learn the birds and the bees and whatnot. Yeah. What a horrific story. So terrible. And we still have people saying, well, I don't mind it because they're keeping his none of that. None of those measures keep us safe. They don't because ninety percent of stuff when they're tested by their own agency, still gets through. They still get knives through. They still get guns through the every time they're tested. They fail these tests, and I mean, the fail the miserably I haven't seen anything better than eighty percent of the stuff getting through now. Wait a minute in any of the training. Did they send somebody through with a tampon bomb? And maybe maybe maybe there aren't high alert now. Like we just got busted on training. We got to be really vigilant now. Well, we had that one guy Richard. What's his face with the shoe bomb about? So now we gotta take off her shoes indefinitely for the forever. One guy with the shoe bomb. Now. We all take our shoes off indefinitely forever. And I got TSA pre just because I care to have it now because I care about my fellow passengers. You don't want me take my shoes off in your vicinity. When did you get any recently or vetted for what year year and a half? So I gotta get TSA pre I've been saying that for five years, and I've never done that, about a lot of things I gotta fill in the blank, right? Across. I am. What you. Yeah. No, that's bad. I won't hear it, but I'm tomorrow, I'm going to do better on this progressive nation thing starting tomorrow. I'm gonna I'm gonna do better. Okay. Well that. That was that thing doc used to do this. He always promises numbers on the procrastination numbers, we're gonna come up tomorrow, but we didn't get to those today. We'll do that. I'll tell you when I was filling in on his show once I actually found a study about why we procrastinate and I sat on that catch right there. And I really wanna do it. No, seriously. I got them right here and I think he thought it was a bit. But it was actually new number supper. They better or worse. Don't tell me. Good on that tomato. Doc man so sad.

Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three Don lemon claims from harassment at the park the other day CNN's own Don lemon at an industry conference last Thursday. He revealed the depth of the harassment. He's endured since becoming a high profile target President Trump and his supporters. He says, I was doing shoot in the park the other day someone yelled, we built this country. I can't wait for CNN to fire your black as you f. And the disparaging f word for homosexuals, what y'all he said. Somebody said screen that right? At him right out. I hate that. That's not nice. I'm sorry. I just don't buy it. No. Who does that? I mean, maybe some total douche was happening by him in the park, and have you ever seen anybody conduct themselves like this ever in, in the vicinity of where you were ever. I don't think I ever have. No, that's a good point. But if this is CNN he said he was doing shoot. We'll certainly cameras were rolling. Let's call for this video. Let's see the proof of it really. I am so tired of these claims when they're so often untrue. And they just they're meant to fire people up and make the racial situation in this country worse. They do a lot of harm to this nation quietly, and it's not good. And it's increased by one hundred fold since Obama, who could have been the transitional president into a place where race completely forgotten where we're all fine with whatever I don't care. We're all color. Like Martin Luther King wanted us to be instead, it went the exact opposite way. You're supposed to pay attention to people's color. Was are all of his Marxist policies. Okay. Let's just say he got everything done in this alternate universe over those eight years that he did during the years that we went through, but didn't try to divide us at the same time we wouldn't have thought he was a good president. But we would have at least respected him for that we would have been a place where. Wow, you know what that suck those eight years that ObamaCare going through is terrible? But if together as people that would have been nice if he didn't seek to divide us to get issues through. Lim said he gets regular calls from Trump support from a Trump supporter who doesn't like him. There's one guy. Yeah. So this one guy. Bugging out of lemon hearing hundred thirty million people. There's one guy who. So he doesn't like bothers him. Do you a yellow said he receives stacks of junk mail from people will figured out address Ono, like none of us? None of the rest of us white people don't get junk mail. We'll get calls. We don't get junk mail. We don't get threats. We don't end up on lists that we have no connection to whatsoever. Just say the word linked in and run for your lives. So boy, people call the authorities and accused me of doing certain things he said while the anchor professed to love his job. He said, I wonder how long I'll continue to do this particular job in the way, I do it, citing that tuck city of the political media climate added lemon it ain't easy. But I don't plan to give up. Wow. That is inspirational Q. I Don I get chills. All over my body, whose bumps her breaking out on my arms. I sure are they are is not just cold in here. It's getting a little cold. I it was like a hundred eighty five degrees, then I took up my main shirt nouns about twelve. Neither be really really hot or really, really cold. So Don lemon is inspiring you. Yes, he is. That's good. Yeah. Well, you know, he's long been mocked on social media by the president who on may twenty third on Twitter called him quote the dumbest man on television. Okay said, quote, Don lemon is a lightweight dumb as a rock, unquote. Kelly. Oh, it's kind of funny bless his heart yell love him. Boy, you gotta get a thicker skin and that. I know. And on lemon doesn't have skin. You know, this is ridiculous. If we wind about every single nasty note, we got that, that's all we would talk about act as if they're the only ones who get any kind of feedback that's negative. Come on. But the anchor said that he's decided not to punch now by responding to presidents insult is not gonna punch down to the president. Wow. He's pretty high up there a cable news anchor saying, I don't punch down at the president. That's where we are lemon. CNN colleagues have also face threats to their security. CNN contributor, April. Ryan White House reporter pays to have her own bodyguard. No. Wow. Good thing that no conservatives have to, to that host got our own bodyguard. April Ryan, who is April Ryan White House reporter. What, what for CNN chase to have her own bodyguard Keith way? First of all, I never heard of you know, I have she's yeah. She's, she's fairly frequent appear a person who appears on CNN. Okay. Well, but is her bodyguard armed? It's a good question. That's a really good question. Glenn's only had to spend I don't know, million dollars a year on security for about fifteen years, twenty almost. But Ryan has to pay to have her own bodyguard. Oh, come on. That's my problem. I've never heard of her e if you if you ever read an article about let's say Glenn and his security. They act as if he's some sort of elitist who believes in his make believe world that he has to have protection. And so, you know, to be cool. He pays people yet, who would want to be cool to the tune of over a million dollars a year in wasted money. It's, it's unbelievable. The spin that you get in all of these media stories. They never reference the threats that conservatives get never, it's, it's always picked on liberals on the mainstream media CNN and MSNBC some of the Democrats in office. All right. Robert in Kentucky. Hi, you're on the blaze. Hey that day. To the kid is into. Diet, probably. Are you talking about a foot of mud or we barely swimming barely hear you? Better better yet. All right.

We're I screw it math on a regular basis. Today's case almost as many shows in the blaze as there are presidential candidates in the democrat party really close right there. And they're all swarming in on Iowa all except for Biden Biden, doesn't he's not playing that game. What's his deal? Well, he's front runner, and he doesn't he doesn't want to go and, and just be swatted around by all these challengers. He's got a different tact, and he's gonna come in.

Eric swallow was in Iowa and he fired up the crowd guys Riddick watch this, but I will always be real with you. Hey, I will be bold without the bowl. Wait, what my wife and I we. We fight unsure what I'm sorry. I'm not familiar with that particular inspirational term. I won't I won't be bold without the bald. So that would be what? Nothing could be. Bold people think he meant to say, I'll be bold without the bull, but he absolutely said bold with the Valois is watches, again, is fun. Got do we not have the be real with you do have it? I will be bold without the bowl. What an applause line. He really thought he my nailed it. Sure. Companies. He does that dramatic turn toward the audience about ready to live with that. I will be bold gold. Oh my gosh. I won't be real without the real stuff. I will tell the truth without telling the truth. Wait, what in stone cold this island from the crowd? Could have been five million people in that room ain't nobody responding to that. And he was waiting for that, plus two thought it was going to bring the long. Pause and it turned into a Jeb Bush. Please clap moment, I will show strength without being strong. Wait. But my wife and I. That man move to the next paragraph. The teleprompter says, I'll be bold without the bowl for large audience participation loud cheering, and he's just like speed up. The teleprompter, my wife, and I even if it is, like bold without the bull kind of stupid phrases that, that's a phrase I've never heard in my life. You'll be bold without the bull. That was, you know, without the bull crap. Yeah. I think he's saying, like trumps bold, but he's full of bull. You know, I it I swallow was really hoping that would bring the house down, and it's probably like it. Lanta falcon Super Bowl champion t shirts that were printed off at halftime during their big game. I guarantee you, there's t shirts and bumper stickers, sitting somewhere that says, swallow bold without the bull and it just fell flat. Now, they're just sitting in a warehouse somewhere. Pathetic can happen to a nicer guy that was the line that was going to skyrocket. Yeah. That was the one all the way to one percent percent here. I come here. Yes. One percent man. I'm on my way after this line. I will be bold without the bold. Okay, I guess I'm gonna have to settle for point five ninety fin. Then I just what you were talking. They had a thing pop up on CNN with, like all of these candidates in their current level support and had the percentage and some some actually zero percent. But swallow in about six or seven others had a little asterisk their name. I don't even think the percent. I don't know what the Asterix was for just looks funny to have air swallow. Asterisk. Not even a percent man. Meanwhile, abortion Barbie is running for congress here in Texas. Former Texas State lawmaker, Wendy Davis remember her. She was the big abortion, governor of Texas. She filibustered to murder babies or something like something. Yeah. Running for a seat now in the house of reps. She ran unsuccessfully, of course. For governor clear back in twenty fourteen time flies. She floated the idea of challenging, Republican congressman chip ROY in Texas, twenty first congressional district that'll be great another total loser who thinks. She's super-popular she's special. But I think you'll find out when she makes the run not so much. We're not all that into you abortion Barbie. So she wants to go to DC. She really does. Meanwhile, HHS has ended the contract, it had with UC San Francisco, making humanized mice with aborted, baby parts. That's a creepy experiment, the department of health and human services, which has been conducting an audit of HHS funded fetal tissue acquisitions along with a comprehensive review of HHS funded fetal tissue research announced that they're ending multi million dollar contract. It maintained with the university of San Francisco that required UCSF to make humanized mice using organs taken from aborted babies. Wow. HHS has been extending the contract by means of a ninety day extension while conducting its audit review. The current extension expires June fifth which was uh Thursday. Yeah. Right. So it's over, and there will be no further extensions. All right. Good -nother -nother under the radar yet. Very yep. Bold role life pro-life move by the Trump administration. So great in on a lot of these issues. He's going way beyond what any other Republican president has done. Meanwhile, Beto dodged questions on whether pro-lifers are welcome in the democrat party. Well, I mean 'cause the is no that I is there anything more clear than that. It's pretty darn clear. You can't be pro-life and be a democrat anymore. At least not one who runs for office. Here's what he had to say. Is there any room in the Democratic Party now for those who oppose abortion? Question. Look, I think that's a question that the candidates, including vice president Biden are going to have to answer for themselves entertain yourself that in the midst of maternal mortality crisis in this country. As deadly women. Access to care is critically important in my home state of Texas. We saw more than a quarter of our family planning clinics, close, not only that fewer women are able to access a safe legal abortion, cervical cancer. Screenings the family planning help the ability to see a provider of this is a life and death matter. So. That we could ever do a nominee who would not believe in a woman's right to choose. And the ability to stand and the mandate for us to stand with women and each and every instance, that's what I believe that's part of why I'm running. And I think that's a core value of the Democratic Party. But on the United States of America notes, not, no, no. It isn't he both have done this life and death. Yeah issue. Yeah. Not realize the irony of what they're saying. But you're right. It is life and death, the death of the baby inside the womb. Are they welcoming your party though? Just answer that question Biden is going to have to answer that question. You answer it. You're the one being asked. And by the way, congrats to Beto. He does have a suit and tie because he was wearing what he wore their sweat. It out is less. T-shirt is put it out every items, slowly shirt. And now he's got the same suit that he wore church there in Waterloo. Yeah. He wore on the set for meet the press. They're good to see has one though. It's good. Nice job. Same one. He's pathetic. Man. I you know, I was starting to feel bad for them. Not anymore answers like that. Just women mortality rates. That's what we're going to. We're going to throw out there now something that almost never happens. This is not eighteen thirty two anymore. Yeah. Because if it were, we'd have those glaciers still for sure. Oh, yeah. Yeah. But as soon as eighteen fifty rolled around. And she wrote all the carbon we were spewing because of our eighteen fifty. F vilis. They explain that have been melting for one hundred and sixty years. Well, we didn't have emissions inspections on our vehicles in eighteen fifty. That was that was the problem. Yeah. So now we got that under control, Robert Francis. Obviously. Answer to that is no, there's no place for prolife person in the democrat party anymore. Certainly not to run for not running for president and I just have to say I love that question. That Stephanopoulos, asked me to it was very that was great. Meanwhile, our great governor Greg Abbott tweeted out turns out, the critics of the Texas, maternal mortality rate. We're just lying. It's less than half of what the critics said. It's about one tenth of one percent, still Texas done more than ever to reduce that rate, even more facts matter. They do except not to the Democrats, their science deniers. They don't care. They, they spew rhetoric. They don't care if it's true or not.

It just doesn't make any sense. And, you know, one day when day we're gonna find out that, you know, we have been conducting the slaughter of millions tens of millions, maybe even eventually hundreds of millions of people. And we're going to consider it, what it really is. And that's a holocaust. Just it's a it's awful. Spike Lee is demanding Hollywood. Shut it down in Georgia over the abortion law. Reinforced Thursday, his controversial stands when he said he demanded that workers in the entertainment move industry move out of Georgia, because a new state law that prohibits killing unborn infants after a fetal heartbeat is detected. Yeah. How dare they try to protect babies? In an article written by the Associated Press the director called for the entertainment industry to shut it down in Georgia and claim that such a loss of income for those in the peach state is necessary. I know it's going to affect people's livelihood. But that's how things change liberal director compared the situation to that of the black bus driver affected by the civil rights movement era in Montgomery, Alabama. Wow. He also noted you gotta be on the right side of history, and the state of Georgia, and those other states, they're wrong. Wait a minute. Glad you decided that for yourself death of babies being pro killing babies. Yeah. That's the right side of history. You'll see that's not going to be considered the right side. Eventually people are gonna wake up and say, how, how could you have allowed this for so long? That's absolute slaughter. Yeah. That's the point that little eleven year old girl was trying to make and the Raleigh city council, and she gets shouted down by the people in the crowd, yet to the point where you really kind of feared for her safety there. You would have loved to see what was going on off camera because it sounded really intense. Then there's feminists Sophie Lewis, we tend to say abortion is indeed very bad. But do we have the video? Gosh. It's Naasi check this out with I think a really terrifying attack on abortion in the US or elsewhere in the past the strategies that outside has tended to us, having -cluded, a kind of seating of ground TI enemies. We really what to say that abortion as indeed very bad. But we say can be, it's not killing luckily, it's just a healthcare, right? We have very little to lose at the moment when it comes to abortion, and I'm interested in winning radically. I wonder if we could think about defending abortion, as a right to stop doing just station. Abortion is in my opinion. And I recognize how controversial this is a form of killing it is a full move. Killing that we should be. Be able to defend. I am not interested in where a human life starts to. Exist. Sure, I see the forms of making and unmaking each other as sort of continuous processes. The spectrum is the process of learning how to die well, and hold each other, and that each other go the end of that lives, as well as the beginning. But looking at the biology of this kind of coral, plantation. That innocently fetus meets out. Vis-a-vis Stater and that, okay. Unexpected for pseudo intellectual bull crap. What a hideous hideous evil stance that is. Yeah. It's a form of killing. We just knew embrace it. That's all. Wow. Thank you. Mrs hitler. Is your husband home? Wow. That is shocking and horrible.

Got here at least Tyler Morgan tweets Eric swallow bold without the beautiful land of the fleet. You can't spell bowled without the bull. And from Lombi IT department. Why did none of these journalists ever question these Democrats and where they get their data? They just fabricate numbers and stats out of thin air. No one's seems to mind. Nope. From Cape pain. Beddoe has been smoking those climate change gases. They're always talking about and libertarian ninja, I guess, the governor Louisiana is no longer allowed to be a democrat after signing a pro-life Ville. Yeah. Forgot that they don't like that. They'll see to his political future being over. Because man, they're in love with abortion, big time. Did you see on MSNBC the other day, alley Vel? She was raised a few eyebrows, when talking with riana gun right about abortion. Listen to the claim that's made here. CNN SRS poll indicates that eighty two percent of Democrats say that aggressive action on climate change is necessary. How do you get this? I mean, there's so many things have you talked to voters out there so many things are concerned about right now, health care and gun violence changes at one of ration-. And the economy and climate change is obviously up there, and it's, it's really not often, number one two three or four. What do you make the arguments posit for such a civic discussion, posit? Have you ever I have never seen climate change one to three or four unless there's only four items mentioned? When I finished fourth. Yeah. Yes. Now when they mentioned all the items people are. And usually there's a list of eighteen or twenty it's always at the bottom of these always. All right. All right. There's more why why not healthcare, so in the issues that you just brought up climate change is one of the main drivers of our public health. So the difference between say one point five degrees of warming, which is the lease that folks think that we can get to me about officer. One point five degrees, which is the least of what people think we can get to even it hasn't even gone up a degree in a half. It's one degree in one hundred years. And there was an eighteen year pause and still still cling to this. All right. It gets worse too. You're talking about one hundred and fifty million deaths. Twenty five holocaust. Right. So how, how is that not about health Dr? Right. You're talking about immigration climate change is going to bring hundreds and millions of, of, of climate migrants climate refugees both from outside the US and inside the US as you people. News, even issues that you outlined, all of them are affected by climate change, and how you decide to climb on believable. No shame. No to compare climate change to the holocaust, and make it twenty five times as bad as the holocaust. How is she surviving this, how is she not been fired from MSNBC? That's despicable. And to say that there's gonna be a hundred and fifty million deaths to this is the same rhetoric. We've been hearing since the late sixties early. Seventies with all those wacky predictions from Paul Erlich, and James Hansen from NASA, and they were wrong every time. Every time and the wrong here, nobody's going to be one hundred fifty million deaths from claiming change. Take it. I know just in the past ten minutes alone. We've dealt with climate change is going to mean twenty five holocausts, and we've don't with a form of killing that needs to be embraced abortion. Yeah. The form of killing what other form of killing should we embrace just about of you just get really mad at somebody and kill them. I mean, shouldn't we embrace that just I mean it's I I wouldn't do it myself, but I don't wanna tell others it's wrong. Well my you know, I think we learned last week. If it's me in between you and in Omaha steak, right? You're that's really the only justification for murder. Right. So there is not world. Accessory in the world that we convict. Everybody's got their exceptions your honor. It was an Omaha steak. It was a rib by a delicious rebuy, and he got in between, and it was Keith and plays into it, and it's no. And just a fright just Keith. Yeah. So, so I mean, in other words are times Dr tons when you just embrace killing innocent babies, isn't one of those times? Wow. Wow. Twenty five holocaust. Okay. Here's some good news. On the abortion front university of Alabama board of trustees voted to give back at twenty six point five million dollar donation twenty six and a half million dollars. They're giving it back to a top donor who told students they should boycott the school because of Alabama's new abortion law. Wow. Hueco Verson junior Hugh Culverhouse junior, seventy year old real estate investor in lawyer already has given twenty one and a half million to the university after he pledged it last September. And he was going to come up with the rest here shortly. But last week, he urged students to participate in a boycott of the school hours later. Alabama said, okay. We don't need you around here. They took a they had a donation. It was a largest ever given to the to the university, and they even named the law school after him. Now, they're taking it all back, there, given back his twenty one point five million, and they're taking his name off the law school fantastic. That's awesome. Thank you, just become a criminal about to say, I have a son, I liked the university Bama became a fan you hear that Stephen down the hall. Okay. So now in Alabama fan for like, I don't know football seasons. Yet 'til 'til we forget that this happened. And when you start winning again, forget it when they're in the playoff again, and BYU in abreast, aren't then we'll be pissed, and we will ask it. We'll balance them anymore. Rescues the playoff. Yes. Well, they'll be what you they're going to be there as well. So that's crazy. And thank you for taking a stand of that could have been easy in the right way. I mean when I saw the headline at first, I thought, okay, the guy gave him a donation, then he said something about, you know, being pro-life until they're going to give him his donate. It was the exact opposite, that never happens happened in this case. Yeah. And they were quick and just say that could have been an easy decision, but boy, it was. 'cause yeah. Acted real fast. Now they claim there were other issues, but I like to think of it as this the game it back to him. 'cause. And it only happened after he started his abortion nonsense. That's great. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three. If you're sick to death of people telling you about. How stupid pro-life people are how ridiculous it is to take away a woman's right to choose all of that stuff. Then you certainly don't want to help their cause by giving money every month to AT and T or Verizon. All of these cell phone companies all big mobile. They're all progressives. And they give to Planned Parenthood. They give to the tides foundation. They donate money to causes that you don't believe in. That's why it's so important to go with patriot mobile. The only conservative company in the business. When you donate. Well, you don't donate. But when you pay your Bill every month to patriot mobile, they turn around and donate up to five percent of your monthly Bill to a cause in which you believe, to pro-life causes to the Heritage Foundation to the NRA. And right now you can get a month of free month of service on all new lines when you use the offer code blaze with unlimited talk and text plans starting as low as twenty five dollars. There's never been a better time to switch more than two million dollars has been raised since the company's founding, imagine what we could do. If we all join this fight get a free month of service on your new lines with the offer code blaze at patriot. Mobile dot com. That's patriot mobile dot com. Right. Got a fun story. Nasa is getting into the space tourism business. They've always resisted this until now. Now they're going to start to allow tourists to live inside the international space station in the NASA section of it. The space agency plans to open the floating lab up to private astronauts, as well as commercial companies they said, you could even film, you could do it. Bring a film crew up and film a movie there. And it's so affordable. Just fifty million per person. That's all. You and your spouse go for a like a one hundred million dollars. You could change back from your hundred and ten billion dollar Bill brilliant. Well, it's only fifty million per person, plus thirty five thousand per night for the, the room. Wait, some fifty million isn't even let you they're to kick you out into the that's just the right up and back. That's the round trip airfare. That's your airfare. Now, the hotel accommodation is thirty five grand tonight, but you have you can get the room with view of the earth, so the cool. But if your credit card like if it doesn't go through they just you out. Right. Exactly. That's still want that to happen is there like a there's also toilet v of, I think sixteen thousand per person and you're not kidding. No. I'm not kidding. That's addition to this. Yeah. In addition, and there's also a meal fee, which is believed twenty to twenty five thousand in there somewhere, just packets of Imerys. Yes. Exactly. All meals ready to eat. So a fifty million dollars get him there thirty five thousand nine sixteen thousand for toilet. If you wanna use the bathrooms extra is it like a discount, if there's like a frequent flyer program for in L, actually, they said there were no frequent flyer miles on this gosh, blackout dates imply. It'd be really cool, and it'd be fun if you were, let's say a billionaire which you pretty much have to be too, if because you in another person go up as a hundred million dollars. There's a lot of millionaires who can't afford this, but at least Nasr's giving a discount, because I think the last time they hitched a ride with the Russians. It was seems to me it was eighty five million. So they're not. I mean they're not gouging. You. Wow. Fifty million. I can't believe you could really do this though as a cheaper if you fly on standby. No, you can't just go down to space. No. I know. And just wait to see if somebody else gets bumped or the lines and show up. Yeah. Paid my fifty million, but I couldn't be there that day. Oh boy. Something here. Appointment. Was the only appointment I could get, you know, for like months yet, advance, you'd hate to have to eat that ticket you would that would be stiff. But kind of cool that we're actually to appoint. They think they're gonna start this next year. Oh, wow. So blue origin, which is Amazon could take you up there or SpaceX, which is Elon Musk's venture, one of those give you ride up to the up to the international space station for Amir fifty million per person. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three and it, Pat unleashed on Twitter where mean tweets Helena tweets now headed to third world country bold without the bull shirts. Yep. From love to fly next time I need a Pap smear. I'm going to TSA. No doctor Bill, there riot pack how can a man have no say in the abortion, but have to pay child support? If the woman decides stab, the baby pretty good question regarding the evil feminist discussion. Finally progressive is. Willing to admit it's murder. I gotta give her that, at least that's true. It's a aunt. And she's, obviously a terrible human being, but she's honest, I mean who are we to judge? I'm just saying it was going to burn in the fires of. Hell. That's all I'm saying. That's all from Tom Kummer. I wonder how long it will be until the NRA is blamed for the shooting of David Ortiz, Boston Red Sox. That's weird man. Superstar David Ortiz got shot in the Dominican work. Four Americans have been killed there in the last couple weeks is going on. And then David Ortiz is shot. Good. Gosh. It certainly jumped in a robbery attempt weird. Wow. So if you're going to the Dominican anytime soon, be very careful. Go to the Dominican, you know, is that really cool cruise you can save a little money in go on that instead so sail away dot com. Yeah. Ruth Bader, Ginsburg publicly praised, Bret cabinet last week or helping establish supreme court history. When I saw that headline, I thought, oh, no, no. Why she liking you right now? Fortunately, we just that pledge he made during the confirmation stuff where he said, I'm going to all my luck lurks are going to be are going to be women. And sure enough, he did it, and so against Berg praised him for selecting only women for his team of law, clerks Justice cavenaugh made history. She said by bringing on board in all female lock clerk crew. So that five times fast law clerk Kerr crew law clerk crew. Thanks to his selections. The court has this term for the first time ever more women the men serving his luck lurks. However, she cautioned that further progress is needed to ensure equal gender representation at the supreme court. Yeah, we're not going to be happy until every Justice is a woman and every luck lurk is a woman, and then every role in upcoming movies has to be filled with by woman, and then women in need to be elected to every office. That's a lot. Yeah. Well, I mean, women that they're so much better than men and then just need to step aside. I got one place where men can go where men can compete against women in women's sports. That's where they can hang out, right? Yeah. That'll be great. Swirled is so crazy, take it, it's crazy. But at least, you know, Ginsburg had that to say, and she had this to say a while ago in a movie awards. Brave does not appear in the US constitution. The word freedom. Wow. She nailed it there, even though that never happened. They did put it in the movie, and it was a power, our full moment. No tis. The word freedom. Here on. So until women occupy every position of importance. I'm not going to be happy. You know, they're still wait too many men doing too many men things and that needs to stop. I think you know, agree on that. Right. I don't want a bunch of men doing men things anymore. We need women to do men things and women doing women things when that happens. Then we'll be in a perfect balance, by the way, Lombi IT department has just chimed in here on the Twitter. Tweeden pet unleash says at Pat unleashed and Keith melon claim of Nebraska and BYU being in the playoffs was just given four Pinocchio by Washington Post. So the Washington Post just fact checks us. Well, well, they're a little premature, perhaps they're attacked premature absolutely triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three. Every week, Stu comes up. I think it's every week, I'm not sure how often he does this, but he comes up with the power rankings for the democrat candidates for office. And he's got you know, a formula that uses that and see there's things like there's thirty different categories and it measures data polling prediction markets fundraising fundamentals. What the fundamentals are media coverage, and a lot more. And so this week the top twenty four on the power list. And this again, this is not necessarily just where they're pulling. But at number twenty four is Mike gravel at fifteen point three. Stew noted the month Ronald Reagan moved into the White House. Mike gravel left his last government job. That was nineteen eighty one. Yeah. He's he was a Senator in Alaska from sixty nine to eighty one then but by hasn't been in office, since now he's running for president weird is that strange? Then a number twenty three is Wayne mess him at fifteen point. Eight now Wayne. He's got a positive opinion from a whopping three percent of Americans. That sounds bad. But. Only eight percent of Americans even know who he is. Come on, at number twenty two is Eric swell. Well, twenty two twenty point two, then you've got Marianne Williams. Marianne Williams while. So she moved up. No. She dropped from nineteenth to twenty one. Then there Seth Multan at number twenty. John Delaney, sneaks in at number nineteen that's down from fifteenth, last time Tim Ryan is at number eighteen. Build the Blasios checks in for the first time at number seventeen with twenty four point nine nobody likes Bill de Blasios. No. In fact, it's worse than that everybody hates him. I don't think he likes himself. His family. Didn't even like we got Montana. Governor Steve Bullock, making his debut at number sixteen on the chart twenty seven point seven Steve Bullock, has no chance Steve didn't even qualify for the upcoming debate. And he's little hacked off about that. Oh, yeah. So he was out on the bubble. Right. And then he ended up. I'm not sure was even on the. You're not you're not part of all set. Then we got Andrew Yang at number fifteen twenty eight point three he is in the debate. We got Michael Bennett twenty eight point eight he's at number fourteen. Tulsi Gabbard sneaks it at thirteenth coming in and number twelve is Jay Inslee. Governor Washington he was eleven. He goes back, one spot John Hickenlooper, who actually denounced socialism at the democratic convention in California. And then what happened was resoundly booed? I don't teach him is it number eleven drop down from tenth. So now the top ten Hooley and Castro. Kirsten gillibrand number nine. Amy klobuchar at number eight. Cory Booker is seventh at fifty one point six at fifty two point eight gel nipping. Cory Booker is Robert Francis o Rourke, the Beto machine at number six Beto machine. But it's campaign. Stupid is falling apart. He's dropped. He dropped seven point four points from his previous power ranking. He just he doesn't seem to have any momentum anymore. In fact, quite the opposite. The momentum is all going backward for him. Joe mental now, exactly. Elizabeth Warren doing pretty well. She's at number five, she seems to picked up lately. I don't know why I don't know. I have another beer with her husband, maybe so natural in wonderful when those two get together. You just feel the chemistry. Yeah, you're billing out of the internet Kamla Harris, sixty five point nine is a rank rating. And she's at number four. Then we're all up to the top three at number three. Bernie sanders. He's not second in this power. Ranking he is third at a rating of sixty nine point two. This democrat socialist, and most people know he is. But the democrat primary has definitely brought his pro-communist in anti American views of the past into a new light. But it's okay because the whole field support whose pro-communist and anti-american viewpoints to that. That's what makes this race with the Democrats of so unique and so wonderful is that they all seem to hate America. So you gotta love that. And number two. This is a little bit of surprise a little bit of an upset. Okay. Pete buddha. Judge on this power ranking sixty eight point eight he was fourth moved up to second, but he really does have momentum in the Iowa poll. He's at fourteen percent now. We started. Nobody even knew who he was. Remember two months ago. This guy was a total joke because he was the mayor of south bend getting into this race. We're like, what, why why would the mayor of south bend, Indiana? Get into this race. Didn't even I didn't even want to bother learning how to pronounce his name. I know long time like whatever incredible. So now he's at number two in the courts. Joe Biden at number one. He's been at number one since he announced his candidacy. He's. We'll see. We'll see he's doing a little bit different strategies. Not participating in any of these mass get togethers lake the rest of the democrat field did in Iowa. He's gonna stop by tomorrow. See if that worked for him noontime. We'll see you tomorrow here on rail unleashed.
