"Finally a good time again houston sports but ought to go ahead and dampen the mood for it in the show. How convenient that were playing machine. Gun kelly and email artists. You're going to dampen the mood. Yeah you know. It's been the unfortunate truth. The houston texans situation. Bring it on what you got. The texans think. We know that they stunk last year. Progress stink again this year. I'm never going to be a believer in the mcnair family. It's just it's hard for me. There's been to years of having to deal with it. That i have any belief that they can run an organization successfully. They can have brief moments because everybody gets dumb luck at some point and they to an extent got dumb luck with shawn watson falling into their laps. But it's it's over. He's never gonna play her again. I mean. I don't know if you guys ready yesterday but sports illustrated had a head a piece up. Were they found somebody. That's not in the lawsuit a masseuse here in the city of houston. I think it's in the city of houston correct. it's They this person has worked with. Sean but didn't feel comfortable doing the lawsuit with tony buzzfeed. Because they didn't want to sign a contract they just didn't they didn't like the feel of it and respect the hell out of that for that reason but they wanted to speak out because they want story in the story of this to be told what this person side of it and it's the person asked for to be anonymous which i completely get. I do not understand the shaming of things when there's anonymous sources like the the trying to ill legitimize things when they're anonymous. Think about the allegations for something like this. It's fine would you. Would you want your name out there involved in this for people to know that you were you. Were you know had this done to you. I wouldn't come on. That's good more power to you. If not i totally understand that is gonna fall around for the rest of your life if you put your name out there. So it's another person that is telling me this is real. I like it's the first true getting it from somebody at least in terms of the reporting that that's out there that they're telling their story i and there's a link to it over on our website sports that dot com some of the stuff on it. It's it's it's still continue to drive the narrative home of. It's not a good look. And i kinda just shoot it off a long time ago that you know the motivation of sean wanted to get out of houston shirl out of it is the football reasoning. But maybe he had an idea that this was coming anything's that getting out of towns way to get away from it see. That doesn't necessarily make sense to me. Because i mean they're so there's no way he didn't have a have sort of i. It's gonna follow me wherever. But i wonder if there's any sort of motivation to it. Also that's the thing like you said it's gonna fall forever. He could have been said trade me. Dale they do. Let's say hypothetically the jets he's going to have to come back here houston to deal with all this. It doesn't matter where he goes. This is never going to see unless it becomes a criminal. Investigations is never going to court. Now someone's going to settle somewhere he. There's too many accusations in rusty. Hardin is a great attorney. He can't win them all. There's no way can how many they're nineteen or twenty nine thousand twenty hundred twenty. Yeah it's in go read this story minute talks about how this person wasn't necessarily forced into it but it was all completely unprofessional. It was sexual. He asked for things that you shouldn't be as worse was the most uncomfortable experienced this masseuses ever had in her years of doing it. And she said that she's dealt with professional athletes in the past never experienced anything like this the way that he acted. And maybe i'm crazy to be at this stage of it because they're you know we don't have all the facts or whatever but part of me believes the you know the store at least that there's a problem here but the shawn watson i. There's so many that it's hard for me to believe that there's some truth to them. How much of it. I will wait for complete facts if we ever get them to be out there before i make the complete determination but it's hard to stomach every single day having these stories that continue to get out there and if there is a a large part of it that is true. I don't want him to be in the city. I don't. I don't want to root for guys like that because there are too many good people in the world that don't act like that that one bad person sour so many like. I'm comfortable with my skin of who i am. I know h guys like this. It makes it makes things worse. I know i've said before that. If i was an owner and i had a football team i wouldn't mind having a couple guys who have may be committed like stupid little petty crime all my team that a bunch of goody two shoes guys this however i'm not okay with yeah and the texans are right. Wait at all out as they should. Because the last thing you wanna do. I deserve to do your do diligence in anything. You own number one well. They don't say alone him. I mean the team while the team. State the fe. Say ma batmobile Number two the worst thing. That could happen as you. Let's say you cut him. And then you find out that every single one was whilst i'm not saying like nothing happens to him and it just it's something that he has one picks them up. No you're right for free without having to give business standpoint. That's the can't do unless it became like super criminal charges if it became if you had maybe three of these even if it's just come out like a the ben roethlisberger situation back when he was used i if they'd just became criminal situations it would it would be something that i think you would see resulting eventual cut. I also firmly believe that it doesn't matter whether any of these are true or not. He is going to miss a couple games next year. Yes i have a hard time imagining at the nfl's not going to suspend him from for some time goodell has hand on the suspend but they don't need legal court they don't need anything other than out. It's it's their code of conduct own private company that they want so they're they've suspended guys for very little at times. I mean in terms of the evidence and the they will suspend him think about it. This way ezekiel elliott was suspended. Six games for a situation that involved one woman. Yeah we got twenty of or twenty cases here. At least if any of these are true. It's gonna be at least a season. Yeah suspension so. There's your way to dampen the mood at the end of the show. Let's just finish on a high note. The kupchak great. I made a joke that you did not make a good job but the cougs are great. They're in the final four. The first time in my life first time in your life the first time since one thousand nine hundred four for a lot of you when you were kicking it and they were doing it. I'm happy for all of you. I am genuinely happy for all the people that have stuck by that basketball program through all the years because there's a lot of them out there and it was rough from tom. Penders era was. I mean all their hitter's wasn't a bad coach. Tom penders wouldn't wouldn't good the clyde drexler era of him being the head coach. Mike god to the james dickey air it. It was rough. I mean it was his dorm of a program as you can get and you guys need to stand up and say it with chest and be as proud as anybody else today because dammit your team has earned that right so enjoy the hell out of it. Something else to baseball season is forty eight hours away. That is right dammit. Maybe there's a career deal at some point who knows. We will keep you up to date with all that. Of course we'll be back tomorrow morning. Six a m for tyler for sean. I'm michael thank you for listening right here on your home for the astros.

I think my cat would still have to be six years. Unless that guy under the age of twenty five fairness and if he's if he's if he's under the twenty five and he's an everyday player then you know you can.

"You know all Had more cereal and more dead money under the cap moving forward right. They save themselves. Five point six million twenty twenty one cap space saving now to screw yourself later so there you have it out there you I had to do this. Unfortunately because they're caps situation that he inherited yep and he's doing nick caserio doing a nice job considering what he's had to deal with all right back to this career thing. I'm just telling you man. There's not a lot of sacred cows. Sports carl's creates a really good player. But i've got a threshold. I'm just telling you now. As much as i love him as a player and think like when you're talking about high in skill set if everything's right we're still playing in the world. We're still looking for that year. Were the full year of him. That we imagine can happen happens. You know that every year we've been on the show together and to it that's always been yes now when that if hits dudes nuts good that means the freaky good right. Yeah i mean we're talking about other worldly skill set for a guy that big that rangy that good at shortstop that kind of power and that ability that just he's just an and the clutch gene somewhere in there too right without a doubt. I mean there's something about that that big moment where these guys him just about as much about it day day stove. This team's been a good bit team. I can also tell you this Carl's needs to thrive in some non big moments to. That's part of it right where it's like. I'm talking about all season long without a meal. And there's been about the consistency of it right. There's there's definitely been some productions plato. Last three years is is is barely been above league. Average right okay so with that now when people just tuned into that we don't now i love calls for more than most people write a great and now the narrative eighteen months ago people wanted him out. After what happened you know. It was going through the struggles in the injuries and then now sudden narrative changed after last year leadership elevated. he had a great postseason. I've got to pay him. I get it. I have no problem paying him a lot of money. I'm not paying him thirty million. I'm sorry i'm not unless it was for four years even hell even i could. I could stomach it for five. Okay just because he's only twenty seven you'll be twenty seven years old when he signs it but i'm gonna be thirty to the odds of him. Being horrible from twenty seven to thirty two. Aren't great now. The now the odds not playing one hundred and fifty games a year all good. Yes love him. That i will tell you this. If i'm james click. And i'm not but if i just put myself as the astros jeep end jim craig the owner. If you all to my office and say i don't see it quite frankly. I don't care what linda gets. I'm just telling you and you say eight years. Thirty million a year around leonard. Be a free agent. You know what. I'm telling him you know how long conversations going to take from the baseball said. Yeah the the the baseball people wouldn't have just simply thing that's why we haven't seen anything about any other is this is gonna end up being a gimcrack thing. I will simply say thirty million a year for eight years on the average i'll say I hope you enjoy your new baseball team. Great to have you this year though. So let's go out have fun. We'll talk to you later day. You'll never convince me that that baseball ops people would be in all of these situations that baseball off. People have a lot to do with it. These decisions i mean the one case where it did happen we know of recently was totti's deal like their gm was the one that spearheaded that and got but again. That's a twenty two year old right. And i'm just telling. You is good as he is and i think he's a phenomenal skill set. There's enough if it prevent me from signing on an eight year thirty million dollar deal less than that. Three years i'll pay. I'll get close to his yearly number. He got can't give them that kind of eight nine year security at thirty plus million dollars a year. I'm sorry what's the furthest you go. Your wife football. Give me the money at island. There wouldn't be a day over five years for thirty million a year not a day. Matter of fact. Not a minute. I think the furthest i could go as could i could live with seven and i would hang our hate your seven. I listen if i if. I gave him something already thirty. He thirty four year at thirty million a year. I'd go to bed every night. Wondering a wins the hams. I'd be. I'd be scared to death. Terrifying terrified did i make the right. I wouldn't go past seven years at well. I'm i'm a stick at five at me i would. I would offer would be five years fair enough. Let's get to quinton q. What's up man. Welcome in great barbecue yesterday by the way we all enjoyed it. Thank you and title. Got a triple dose of it. Because he took what was left home and he loved it so it was awesome man. Thank you for including us. But very welcoming very welcoming. When i my smokers big enough. That went out. I liked it. there's plenty of it. There was and we enjoyed it. We enjoyed it and No regrets because it was delicious. So thank you for no with this contract. I would look at it as as sitting at the gm chair okay. If this guy goes to every team in in major league baseball is he just starting shortstop. How many teams would he not be the starting shortstop four five three basics basically most of the guys that are free agents this offseason maybe five or six where he wouldn't just go in half the job handed to him right. So that's five or six. I'm taking those five or six guys. And i'm looking at their age looking at their what they're making but my my bottom line would be a five year deal that about one thirty six which is about twenty seven million and if this is the nfl it'd be really easy for me. You inform you put the performance clauses in there. She pays eighty five percent. Give him a bonus. He played ninety percent of the games. Give giving another bonus ninety five percent of the games given other bonus you know if he pays if he plays every game one season. Give him a fifteen dollar. Bonus if you can't. But i don't know if you can do that. Major league baseball pretty easy if you negotiate a football contract like that right but you know i i. Every time i see a ten year deal. I immediately think of alex rodriguez with the rangers. They still waiting on a world series ring and they gave him ten. Twenty five million. That's gotta be twenty years ago. I think the bryce harper contract was stupid. I would never get any guys thirteen years because you you hamstring your your salad crap and your teen regardless of what the sporty is forever. I mean you look at what my in the nfl. All of a sudden they gave my home is four hundred fifty million dollar contract nine. You gotta go to tackles. 'cause you can get couldn't pay that you got an interesting about that is more than like more than likely they'll be two new. Gm's or at least one in the time the guy who negotiated the contract in most of these cases won't even sniff being in the same job when those guys contract comes to an end. Oh i completely agree. I completely agree. But if you can make his an incentive laid of contract based on not his performance at the plate but his performance of being available to play starting at eighty to eighty five to ninety you know breaking up to eighty eight percent ninety two percent if you could do that and make it a bonus great and making an option getting five years one thirty six and the option for the last year will be a club option at forty if the form is all these you know all these times he gets up to eighty five or ninety percent of the time on the option automatically kick fan. Yeah i heard yes agreed agreed. But i wouldn't give anybody a seventy eight year contract four hundred for two hundred million dollars and trout's a phenomenal player. I wouldn't give it to him. Look what happened with Blows they feel waiting on the world series ring on the out anaheim. They gave him all. They're waiting on a world series appearance for trout in own. I'm saying so and trout is the trout is the guy. He's the best player in baseball and they haven't sniffed so i i don't buy into the anything over a decade long. I'm not.

"Somebody's gonna pay him. And the mets have money. Here's what they talked about. Carlos correa they call it he's A big bet on himself. He was the first overall. Pick obviously in two thousand twelve. He's been an all-star Two thousand seventeen two thousand seventeen world series champion. I'm giving the resume. This is just what they're saying stats that matter. Three fifty three career on base percentage and one hundred and twenty. Six career adjusted. Eps he's the only one in one of the group. Create twenty. twenty-six is shouldered significant expectations since he topped in the draft. Obviously go through. The negatives are more more than overcome by a skill set. This person says by rarely falls Him when he is on the field and inability to rise to the moment in october. The astros made the post season. Obviously so what happens is his ability to shake off a so-so six game regular season slammed six home runs as we've talked about And get the A win shy of a world series again. Last october was a reminder of the capability so the question is what happens now. Korea has talked about the hundred twenty million dollars said it was really low. Sam thursday's opening day deadline for an extension is firm wants. The season starts when i start playing. I'm playing my last season before. I become a free agent for me. It doesn't make any sense to be dealing. I'm trying to focus and trying to perform trying to help my team win ballgames so yeah absolutely not. i still. Don't buy that if they offered him. Two hundred ninety million dollars three hundred dollars. Yeah i would he would. He would take if the money's right believe that and then there's ability of bregman to shift to shortstop if needed so with that in mind. Judging from lindores three hundred eighty nine eighty or ninety million dollar asking price does carre have a gripe if it's only one hundred twenty million dollars. Yeah because i think the trickle down effect does matter. I mean you can't watch one of the shortstops it look at lindores track records better. He has put up more big-league numbers to To to warrant those things. But we're talking about a gap there in the in the average annual value of twelve. Thirteen million bucks. There's not that much as i can see the doesn't deserve this crater deserve that from a fair market standpoint. You can't have that big of a gap and there's there's pressure from the players association to also not have that kind of gap to like that that exist this story as well so like. Yeah i think he has a gripe to be made that i'm deserving of at least like you said if you minutes it'll being at least within five million dollars a year's as close as as he is as close to lindores as you are. I should say yeah. I would think there's a thing that we're talking about a now. The years per average obviously would be different but over the course of the years. You're talking almost four hundred million dollars to buck twenty -nificant. It's a lot of money. And i would understand korea's gripe now the astros are so gung ho by just one hundred it'd being one hundred and twenty million bucks at why they don't they may i. I'm assuming that korea wouldn't be interested in him. Why wouldn't you go off her for three or four years dude shorter-term hundred and twenty four. Yeah or one hundred and twenty five one hundred thirty four whatever. They may just to get the thirty two million a year. Why wouldn't you go do that. I'd sign up for today. He be thirty one or thirty one again when he puts out and puts up and does his thing he'll be ready for another four or five year deal big one. I don't know why you wouldn't. I've been able to offer. I don't think he'd take a he's he's he wants long-term securi- long-term he wants over. He does one over well over two hundred million. Okay if you were him or a guy with his ability look at your overall. You know your your body of work. And they can't said thirty two million a year for four years or twenty five million a year for seven twenty-seven year. I'll get. I'll give him give him twenty seven twenty seven year for seven thirty two for full practice shorter deal just because i think the ego would get involved there anything that i could be back out there on the market in a few years now still be just as good and i can get more on a yearly average in. It'd be a term deal again. But i can. I can up my yearly average in terms of pay. That point remind me again. How old is he twenty six. Play this season twenty six the youngest of the group. Yeah he won't be twenty seven till the end of the season so a four year deal would be what thirty two thirty three hundred eighty one. You're good at math. Thirty to twenty seven three six would be thirty three. You'll get paid thirty like and we just saw george. A five year dealer was a six year deal at thirty one security six year deal. Thirty one hundred fifty million grail. Get paid again if he keeps putting up semi closed the numbers that he put up now and if he actually puts up even better who get paid again they get paid more. I just don't think that thi. I mean players clearly are on this and i. I don't know why baseball continues to go down. That way were players. You can't get players on shorter term deals trevor. Bauer is the first one to really kind of do it. I i hope that for the future it becomes more of a thing because like lender apparently stuck on he wants twelve years for three eighty. Felt like the team should be handed out twelve year deals. I don't i gotta come clean. I know he's good. I wouldn't be handing out of nine year. Do he's how old now who lender easy. You're older than career right. So he'll be twenty eight twenty. I think he's twenty seven. Now gonna be twenty eight when the season. I mean some time during the season or is he twenty eight of the season and not all right so same same. They pretty similar. Give it to her twenty. You'll be. you'll be forty why you can't do that. I don't understand why we think we need to appease every. Listen i've not giving i just think different. The guy i see today is not going to be the same guy in a decade right. He's just not at a listen if i knew he was. Let's say nineteen years old that we got a conversation. Forty did their zero check. Not not to percent one. There's zero chance. He's worth ten million dollars a year at forty. I'm just telling no. Yeah i don't know why and this remember. These are all guaranteed key. Gets his money do i do. I really think he's gonna okay. Chances of the mets. How many world series of the mets win in twelve years. I mean they're odds aren't great no matter what because thirty teams okay. Yeah i love lindores. I'm just going by the history and history. They're not gonna win. One what i love about him or that he's got his. He's got a sense of history for the game. You listened to him talk. The guy cares and he. He has a blast playing. I love guys like when there's there's there's such great energy and his personality i've frigging love him but even him did i. I got now if you can get it if you're him if somebody's dove enough to pay you that kind of money at the back end where. Your forty is pool status enough. I would have hoped so but clearly no contracts. Keep getting them six. He's gonna leave. I mean there's plenty of contracts like that poof. Hoses wino- rodriguez was mark. None of them do at the end of it. It's not just for like a couple of years majority of those contracts last three four years of it maybe even five. They're not good and the pools contract as a whole is horrible. I just he was never near anywhere near.

We didn't have march madness tournaments. We didn't get to see the men's teams and the women's team go out to compete crowning national champion.

Kansas splits with athletic director Jeff Long two days after parting ways with Les Miles
"Get you updated on what is happening in lawrence kansas. Where less mild was let go the other day and then this afternoon the man who hired him and presumably let him go has also been shown. The door crisslow joining us on that story and others. Chris thanks for the time. Always good to have you on and give us the latest. How did how did how did this happen. So quickly with jeff long. It's great to be with you. Always i I really felt like we heard the news about less miles that this was just it was going to happen with jeff law and just did not senior way. He would survive. I think what happened in a lot of donors a kansas at the end of the day. The president a chance to learn. Douglas giradi heard from several influential donors that they just did not want to be the guy to hire the next head football coach and i think when you look back sort of having all the down with less weight ended there that The more that they thought about it. And i think jeff athletics look long enough to know he said in a statement. Today was going to be a huge distraction more hung around and and they wanna make a clean break. Bring somebody else in to hire the knicks head football coach. Oh by the way they got issues the basketball program. Well they certainly do. And i saw her. Danny manning announced that he was a contender for the ad job. But as we. I don't know whether tennessee is the template but you do need an athletic director to get in there. Fairly quickly don't you. Yeah you don't the what's your proverbial tail wagging the dog. So yeah you gotta bring somebody else somebody. And it's going to be the ad someone that's that's gonna be the football coaches boss. I tell you name to keep in mind. Travis goff and northwestern we went to kansas undergrad. There how highly respected and sort of in the world. And he's a guy that you're going to hear a lot of push for from donors from influential people there k you to bring in to come in higher this the next head football coach. I think a guy will be certainly equipped to deal with. What's going to come their way on the basketball front as well talking to crisslow chris. Let me just take a step back and go back in time time to lsu and unless miles and after this information dumped the other day and learning much more about what happened down there and what didn't happen. I'm curious as a reporter who has covered so many scandals in so many so many big stories in college football just your your takeaway from from the progression of that program with with joe alita and less miles to to really where it is now and where does it go to try to clean up a rather tattered reputation. Yeah you think back to two thousand eleven ten years ago paul. Lsu's on top of the world now. Granted they lost alabama national championship. But that was a great football team In in a team that was is elite as it gets and now here. We are ten years later and they won the championship last year. But a lot of things off the field. A lot of things going on you know you. You always felt like there at the end of his tenured. Lsu that there was a lot of people. They're out to get him. When i say out to get him that wanted to move on. I just felt like they could do better. But as you know you know the sec. As well as anybody yeses. He thinks they can do better. Except for maybe in tuscaloosa And i think the some of the political forces around lsu sorta helpless. We're on his side to leave. Certainly it and four games the sixteen season they got it in. You heard jimbo. Fisher's name all sorts of aim. Tom herman the end up with a lot of people felt like that was never going to work with all the old winter national championship last year and really a great job assembling people going out and getting staff around in but now here we are off the field with this complete invested in investigation. As some of the way things have been handled with sexual assault domestic incidents going back before was head coach So you're right. There's there's a lot on their at lsu Just like kansas.

He was responsible for that hiring in that contract and it serves as a as a lesson to really any idea out there if the agents want to get it done they can go ahead and get it done but for the most part this is. This should be a This should just be. It should be a warning sign. I mean beyond anything else. I think that's what What we should remember shouts to Rick Smith and Dan Evil off who have represented manning first entire career and getting that done. I can't see any way in which they don't allow this ultimately to to get paid back demanding. I don't think wake has a leg to stand on but that will be something to keep track of going forward because it wouldn't surprise me for going to court. If the number is one point five million on average if it's a five year contract at seven point five million dollars guaranteed again just to circle back to the initial point to go from being fired as an assistant coach in two thousand eleven to fire to to signing a contract in two thousand and twenty seven point five million dollars to be the head coach at an.

My Wife my wife. This is weird to me. She will watch any episode of anything with no context context for the show. I can't do it. I cannot do it so like she will like the better. Call Saul season finale. She doesn't watch better call but she watched it with me in like enjoyed it. She has no idea what's going on. Who she she just has a unique ability to just mindlessly. Watch whatever done television. She's fine with it so last night. She's sitting on the couch and she goes. We'll sit down with me and I said well what do you want? And she's like I don't know she never knows what she's watching it so I looked I clicked the info thing and it was Chicago fire. I've never watched Chicago fire and so she's watching Chicago fire and it comes back from commercial and I'm just sort of. I don't want to watch this but I also like my wife asked me to sit down so I'm trying to be a good husband right in the middle pandemic so I sit down and I'm like okay. I'll just watch for a few minutes and then I'll invent the reason that I have to get up and then I go upstairs and have a drink so I'm sitting there and I'm watching Chicago. Fire and oddly surprisingly. It's a pretty interesting little scene. That's going on here so I don't know what it's about or who these people are but I'm watching it right. And then it goes to commercial and cricket commercial comes on and I'm now I'm just watching a cricket commercial cell phone service and the first person that commercial it's got like all these customers.

"Everyone was rally behind it. It's it's taking place in an in Indianapolis and if you had to pick one program that you would wanna see David take down. The goliath would have to duke and I it was all set up for. I'm not even just talking about the one shot. Obviously that's the one moment that everyone turns to Gordon Hayward a half court shot would have gone on both flame. Well the whole game. This was not a case of like Butler down. Eight with with a minute and a half left and went on a furious run to have a chance at the end like they were playing. Do close the entire game a couple possessions. Get flipped a different way. And and Butler wins it. In it's the opposite dukes. Dude needs a miracle at the Buzzer to Butler or something. I don't know the the duke team to think like the fact that it was a very forgettable team just in the sense of there. Aren't guys that if you if you stop someone on the street and asked him to name people on the two thousand ten two team? I think people would struggle to do so. I mean you and I remember you know. We remember Nolan Smith and John cale single urban. Do you remember that Lance Ryan Zubec-? That's all you know. The most moving screens ever sat in a final. Four Brian. Zoubek do you remember that Lance Thomas was on that team? Because it's weird how people don't mention how Lance Thomas was on a team. I wonder why that is state and I wonder why lanes Thomas doesn't get talked about more as being very integral part of that two thousand ten duke title Honda there though the. Let's get back to Subic No. The dude team was good again. This is not a case of me saying the Duke wasn't good enough to to like Duke. I'm not doing the same thing where it's like dutifully the perfect game. And that's the only reason they want and mom like you've been doing with Villanova. Nc state some of these other Duke. Duke was a very good team man. The stars had a line for for Butler to win and it sucks again. Let me just say this. If Gordon Hayward had called bank the ball goes in they win the title and it's one of those things where if you're Butler and you're supposed to win fundamentals Gordon you shoot. That shot you Yell Bank. It goes in. It's the it's the bank before the Bang of J. Right. Everyone's like man. Gordon Hayward is clutch Jordan. Gordon Hayward is college basketball. Here's the Jimmy Chitwood of college basketball. None of that. I don't think anything really changed. What's interesting about that? That gets that get stabbed is like the big. What if in College Basketball History? But I don't think The timeline of things or landscape of college basketball really changes at all. I mean if Gordon makes the shot bother wins the title that's cool. They're gonNA hang a banner Duke. It's a banner taken away from him but Brad Stevens is still going to the NBA. He's still looking around and say like you probably goes to the NBA. After that season versus Wade in another season Gordon was still going to the NBA as well. He is like I have nothing left. To prove air. Duke would have been fine. It's not like coach k. Would have been you know. It's not like that starts. The it does so that was that was the restart of Duke. That was they won. They won that title at Twenty Ten and then coach. Kaye is like I will never be able to win with the team that bad again. Let's go fully into this world. Kyrie Irving Europe decks. But don't you think he does that if they lose still doing that result played? Brian's uvakov those minutes I can't let that happen again. I'm doing all the way I mean. The fact of the matter is he was already doing that because he thought that team in two thousand ten no shot at winning a title and then they ended up winning a title so it was like it was just like It was funny because Harrison. Barnes was number one player in the country he committed in the fall of two thousand nine Carolina. One title beat everybody by twenty points. Tournament was by far the best humans tournament. The fall they get the number one player in the country who was destined to go to the next grant hill. He decided to go to North Carolina. Everything was looking bad for Duke. It was all downhill as I was like. Oh Man Dukes dead like they have nothing. Who are they leaning? Oh John Shire the worst version of data reading that's great and then they somehow made this magical run and like you said like it flipped everything the other way. I don't know how it happened but I wish Gordon would have made that shot. That's number two. Okay go ahead. You're number one number two thousand and three team Carmelo. Anthony comes in He is Ozzy top player in the country. Everyone's excited about Yadda Yadda Yadda but there was a team in Lawrence Kansas. Where the coach? While the name of Roy who had guys that have been in the trenches been through it all Kirk Hinrich Nicholson And it was one of those years. Where like you said we've talked about Kansas. They're trying to get every every big program as we got the twenty first century. They all had like this clock of like win. Do we get our title in the twenty first century so we can validate the fact that we are you know quote unquote this dynastic locale Texas football. I think the big thing was before Vince Young. They had a comma in the stadium. They had all their national championship listed. And then after the last one had a comma and it was a big thing about how like the comma signifies that there's going to be another one that next one come in. When do we get it? Yeah Yeah and everyone's freaking out about that because the last one that you got ninety nine thousand nine hundred eighty eight was like we said it was a magical run it was it was a miracle quote unquote so people were going crazy. Roy Williams on the hot seat a little bit in the sense that like there was all these rumors going into the tournament. All is GONNA leave. Is He gonNA take the North Carolina job? There's a rumor that Dean Smith Lou Lawrence Kansas to talked about the North Carolina job. That's crazy what's going on. He is doing The opposite of that which basically like I hate North Carolina. I will not go to North Carolina. I love. Nicholson I love Kirk. Hinrich which was a tough time with Carolina fans. Because you know people would hurt all these things as well and you know all this is happening in the world and then you get Carmelo Anthony in Syracuse. And you've got a team that has held been or running a zone and if there's anything you know about me. I hate zone defenses. I think that they are the most gimmicky stupid thing you can do in sports and adult. I don't respect it. I don't think it's a Ghalib's that you is that you doug not not a fan of the zone Sony ways like was there biggie. Seem it was like the antithesis of how Irish like wanted to play basketball or would would run a team that played basketball rapes. All these things are floating up in my mind is like this perfect moment and Roy Williams going to the game. He can get his veteran guys championship and then he can get them to graduate and then he can leave on on a good note. You know. That's what I'm thinking anyways. All this happens They lose the Syracuse. They loose Ogata shoots forty seven percents behind the one guy in Carmelo Anthony It was a a so that we hadn't seen college basketball and also in my mind sort of changed the game a little bit in the sense that Oh we can run stupid zone and just have the best player on the floor and we can win a title Great like that wasn't really the recipe in college basketball And I think that recipe it starts five years later in two thousand eight with Derrick rose. I'm totally fine with that. But I think it started in two thousand three. As far as people believing that is the setup Allegra Williams and a very difficult position to lose title game then basically have to screw you to Kansas go to North Carolina. They win that game. It's a lot easy air of a pill the pill the band aid off for everybody. I'm like we won the title. I got these guys championship. These are Mike is now. I'm moving on everyone's happy and the essence that would have been great in the is Jim behind everyone's title and get any sort of credit ever and that's like best case scenario for me if you extrapolate at all well. Interestingly I think if if if Roy wins three than Kansas doesn't win and away because I don't think exactly they'll win annoy the Roy doesn't feel guilty about leaving Kansas. And then he doesn't just lay over in the final four-game admitted ugly and then two days later Where Kansas Kansas stick around shirt in the crowd With Larry Brown he laboured able to North Carolina cheering for the team. That just kicked his ass. It was Sarah. Yeah that's a good pick all right. I'm with you on that one I don't I don't hate the just just or clear I don't he. Jim Boeheim Zone as much as you do. So Syracuse fans. Don't don't you say a plug. It's it's fine it worked. I'm saying it by version of this. Then it wouldn't have worked and then everyone could say man. Running zone is really stupid like we said before but this validated the whole the whole prize. My number one is it could only be this. It is two thousand seven and I might be slightly by a state but that result is horsh. It always will mean thousand. Who Played. I forget Florida and Somebody Ohio guys. The guys so Ohio state the best team in the country all year. All the experts were saying that they were saying. Has Anyone seen a team? This dominant from from one to thirteen on the end of the bench. They have the best into the bench player in the country. They have the best best player in the country. We've never seen a team built like this. That's what all the experts were saying all year. And then the Buckeyes in this game tate go four for twenty three from three point line with one of the all time great shooters in program. History buried at the end of the bench. Never gets his chance. Never gets to see the court to show you could do. I think you get a coach. WHO's not a coward running the show in this game and and maybe I don't know when the team is like four for nineteen he he says. Well we can't hit shit and he turns it into the benches like let's just roll the dice a little bit and see. Let's though this wild card in and see what happens You Know Thad Matta did not do that and I'm not putting all the blame on him. I'm just saying maybe a better coach would have taken in a. That's why this is number one on my list. I also WanNa say Florida won the title in six and brought back all five starters and like for some reason people celebrate that that is total horseshoe that is that should be illegal that is unprecedented in college basketball. History as far as I know whether it is or not doesn't matter I I reject reality except my own version of reality and that's the only time it's ever happened. I think there needs to be a rule put in place when I'm president. I will put ruin place if you win a national title. One of your started has to go to the NBA. It's only fair. It's not fair the rest of the country and Florida cheated. And that's what they did. They brought back all five starters and we all know to be true and it's bullshit and that's that so yeah that's perfect and I will say this if we take my number one number one we create that reality anyways row Williams. He leaves a little bit later. Bill self stays at Illinois for a couple more years and then he decides you know what I'm GonNa go Ohio State and I'm GONNA get You know this Guy Greg. Go to my calendar. Come and then he's GonNa have you into the bench as GonNa say you know what I need a miracle right now? And he's looking at a union. I Really Miracle Mart and then you hit the shot. It's marks Mir miracle. Yeah in two thousand seven. It's a year ahead and And then Oa Carolina wins and then they went to nine again to get the back to back there. This is a way better version of college basketball if I could do this because the new windows. Seven Carolina wins. Oh eight Oh nine. Gordon Wins in twenty ten. Yup Kimball Wins. Twenty eleven and and everyone's happy and think about where I would be now. I'm here in my apartment talking. You about nonsense. Yes what my life could've became instead of this garbage yes. Dan Dam dam. So you're your own. Does it again? Your top five. You have number one. Oh three number. Two two thousand eight number three nine hundred eighty five number four nine thousand eight hundred number five ninety three. My Five is Oh seven twenty ten nine hundred ninety eight two thousand fifteen in two thousand five. Those are lists. That was fun. Funnel exercise anything else. Put a bow on it before you get to coach meeting all the people that did win the National Championships. Obviously we respect and we think great moments.

Now you get them in the title game. You're finally GONNA. You're finally going to get over. The Hump Repairs finally going to get his title. It's all going to happen. It's going to happen. I think was used on the wack at the time or the mountain west. I don't really amount. Yeah do their wagon. They were like a tiny school on the West Coast and Utah. The whole story would have been awesome. That this tiny s a non power conference It's at dawn with the fat coach. That I don't know that the whole story would have been great and instead Kentucky Road Everything and won their second title in three years yet. And it's a for people that don't remember they beat. Utah beat North Carolina upset North Carolina who I thought was the best team in nineteen ninety eight when you beat North Carolina in that game. I was full onto boomer. Utah. I'm like okay. You'RE UPSET NORTH CAROLINA AMAL IN GARISSA LIKE DOES UTAH. Team like Kentucky like you said. They were beating the brakes off early on and I was so little. I think I watched the first half. I don't remember like it. What happened but I remember what you didn't realize they lost till I just told you right now. You're like wait what this remember that. Utah team like I had flip. Such a switch like one eighty the other way like I hated them so much like I'm crying. North Carolina laws. Go from six or seven. Six years old Crying 'cause northbound laws than merely was like. Oh we hate Kentucky. My Dad was working Bolliger and Kentucky Times like we all like Turkey. It's like all right. Let's flip the switch refl Utah and then they were beaten them earlier. I'm like okay. I always remember Andre Miller in his point that used to keep in horrid because I was going to say Yankee Fan Horn so glad say that yeah that That you thought team is like I feel like if you did a thirty for thirty or some sort of history on that Utah era of Rick. Majerus people would go crazy because the amazing it would be good because like I said it wasn't just this wasn't a case of the Stars. Aligned for Utah and they got hot and they were good for one year. I mean they were. They had a really really good run. And They Laura Program they lost to Kentucky every single year. And you're like man. This would be great if they can finally be Kentucky not only beat them but beat him in the National Championship. Oh my God. That was how it was supposed to happen. This was supposed to be Duke beating. Unlv getting revenge type thing where Utah finally gets over Kentucky Hop and everyone's happy and instead the opposite happens and what the. Here's the the the stream out of that? So what happens? Tubby Smith the way that we revere Tubby Smith. I think Tubby Smith. I think if he loses this game I think a few years later Kentucky Fans Ron out of Lexington. I think he goes to Minnesota run out of there goes the Texas Tech. It's fire I think he just hops around keeps getting fired and ultimately ends up a high point. That's what I think. Oh your second oh no I I am glad like A. That's the one. That's the one redeeming thing from this as I do like helping them. Glad tubby one. Then I think it's cool to the Tubby Smith gotTA title before you know. He he gets defined the remember Waiting to title his career but Otherwise yeah that socks if I could if I could undo this and Redo it I would definitely give Utah. The the title majority needed a title for dessert title. That's good pick My last two are together. And they're also time-line related so I'll go my second one is Is Related to the first and my second one is two thousand eight Which is the Kansas Bill Self Marley? Hey Danny Man. This is perfect. You're scrapping titles right as we're about we're having him on five minutes and you're here it is here that series. I wanted the watershed moment for college basketball to happen. The one and done watershed moment should have happened in two thousand eight but instead it happened in two thousand and three. So we're talking about two thousand eight so we'RE TALKING ABOUT MEMPHIS and we're talking about Kansas and we're talking about the fact that the one and done era got cosign approved by college basketball five years before and We'll talk about that later. But I in two thousand eight this is. Derrick rose year. In my opinion I thought Memphis In John Calipari they were the ultimate like middle finger at the blue bloods are like this. Is College basketball? People like Derrick. Rose are not going to be going to Duke and North Carolina or Kansas or UCLA. Like they're going to go to Memphis to wherever coach cal is or anyone that is coach cal like like. Where's Rick Stands Berry? He's going to get these kids and they're gonNA compete for titles so I found that fascinating because I thought that it opened the doors up the Floodgates College Basketball Oh. My goodness like eighty-one could come here with the best Michael Beasley in Kansas. State would be another example of that right and so anyways derrick rose is like there was all these reports coming to school. It's like Oh derrick rose like did take the SAT. Derrick. Rose didn't couldn't go to like there's all this bad trash talk about going to the season and then he just comes in in my opinion and is just lights out basketball player just has a feel for the game where I'm like. Oh man this guy's something else like this Memphis team is something else coach cal period. There's something else and like their plan. A Different Game Chris. Douglas Roberts guys like they don't seem like they care about the solution's very fab five mentality sort of thing and they go to the title game. They're playing against his candidacy. And that is looking for that title to sort of twenty years since nineteen eighty eight. We WanNA validate who we are as a Blueblood Validate the fact that we are Kansas Basketball Yada Yada Yada. And we're going coach county outsider quote unquote. He likes to call himself at the time we got derrick rose's freshman and they miss a bunch of free throws as like a an. Obviously Mario Traumas is amazing shower over time. We all know the rest of history and I don't WanNa take that away. I Love Mario Chompers ending. That was a big moment but dare rose and Memphis wins the title that year. The first one in done team to kind of come in make the noise they win the title then the fallout from. That is so fascinating to me. Because from their coach Caldera has all the chips right. He's like I am like I don't need a Blueblood like he did his coach Cow Duck Mary. It was like I had to Kentucky North Carolina's place to get co signed so I could be one of those guys. I think if he wins the Taiwan away. He doesn't need that anymore. Maybe stays memphis is just like mom. I'm GonNa blow this thing all the way the roof like I'm going to have a platoon system at Memphis like I'm GonNa just. This is who we are. This is what we do. Blow it out. And that's like sort of the new age of one and done and it starts there. Two Thousand Eight I think Derrick Rose in Calcutta done that. I think it saves cow. We're going to Kentucky. I think we get like I would like John Calipari so much more. If he was doing this like what he was doing a Kentucky in twenty twelve. You're doing it at Memphis. I don't know why but I would have and this is in the ACC time line like Memphis finds their way into the mid. They Pittsburgh spot in the ACC. There's something poetic about All that year Kalugin about free throws and he's like now. We're good the threat. We're good we're good. We're good and then they lose because they didn't make a free throw all they had to make one free. Joe Could Make It. It's kind of funny. It is funny but it's a good pick. I I like where you're going with that I think in a vacuum though a Game Kansas wedding was was awesome because all those same like can they I mean. He said he's been twenty years since Kansas. They're kind of just looking for their their It was kind of the same thing as Carolina where they they're obviously a great program Lake Man. It's been it's been a weird run. Roy Can never get over the hump of Kansas now. Bill taken over and he's had some good teams but yet like does it matter. Where WOULD BILL SELF BE? If he doesn't win no eight. Oh my God he would have definitely got fired right. Exactly if you would've kept having one seeds in the never wins the national title at some point or he goes back in two thousand twelve and they lose to Kentucky. I mean this is one of those things where it's like even we go like. He loses the cow twice. He Lose Weight at Memphis any loses again. Again it's like that's a nightmare so in a vacuum I liked to Kansas one but As far as like the the story the overall arc of College Basketball Memphis wins. That that's very fascinating to think about. Yeah let's pick by number two. My number two is two thousand ten Gordon Hayward shot not going in as not even just a shot it's Butler it's It's playing in Indianapolis State. It's having Butler plane down the road from their campus in Indianapolis against the most hated program in College Basketball. It cannot be scripted anymore. Better And not not even just that. The head coach of Butler was from Zanesville Indiana Brad Stevens. He's from just down the road from where they were playing the best player on the team. Gordon Hayward he is from just down the road it was a very very local feel. The entire state of Indiana was behind Butler. Even the this was back in like people felt others like a fun little story. They weren't good enough to really actually challenge. I you and produce alight Fans Kinda getting behind them. Now I think find more I you improve fans like Kinda hate Butler but.
"danny manning" Discussed on Titus & Tate
"North Carolina. I feel like your line of pictures. I feel like North Carolina Murray State. There's a real chance for an upset there just for the same thing you're saying with Duke or Thirteen C. Let's let's go and get this upset done. I can see that happening. I could see Kansas having something like that. Happen is basically the blue bloods yet. Yeah definitely blue. Bloods Split it's basically like Murray state and UNBC. In terms of trolling the vote to make the winner. If looking at like the peyton Hillis Madden cover situation. It's going to be one of those two And yet Murray states an interesting one. I don't I don't know how they're doing a congratulated them They're figuring maybe it's all the Kentucky fans are voting for Murray State To be UNC. Yeah and they're they're trying to double dip your Murray State can. There's a lot of people that aren't even voting for their school. They even looked at that side of the bracket they're just like. I WanNa find the team. I hate like Michigan fans were probably beforehand whoever has as playing like. I'm just GonNa vote for Lulu. Yup I did that was Li i. It's a lot of people are getting upset about this. Like you know because of the rigging of the votes in the sense that like people will vote against him. They don't like but that's part of the game. This is twit. Don't don't don't don't there's real life stuff going on in the world. Don't get upset about this. Get upset about the stuff that actually matters in this world such as the Horse contest that ESPN put on that That foof get upset about that. That's that's what you should really. Did you watch that by the way did you? I didn't watch it. I just thought it was bad. I read the commentary and I'll have to say as like horses. Never been a good game to start with. You know what I mean especially like at home zoom. I don't think anyone ever had fun. Plano has as soon as I heard that. I was like a red flag necessarily responses and I was like. Oh Chris Paul loss. I'm out I watched only to see Mike. Conley play I knew he was Ohio. His house in Columbus and I was watching just to see if any of the guys I know were at is like GonNa pop in screen or friends of ours. That are just always hanging around bikes. Yeah that was pretty funny though where people were losing their mind to how big Mike's gym was in the takeaway. Point was how much money Mike is made. Which has made a ton of money in his career but my my the point should have been how cheap real estate is in Columbus Ohio. Because his house is really like not even that expensive to have for big is and he's got a given that all that's like two million dollars or something but And this at the time for you know. My colleague was the highest paid player. They'd be like twenty. Six hundred twenty five million dollars a year or over five years and twenty five a year and you know people were upset because they were like this guy has zone Jim. But he's not even an all-star into that I say Mike Conley is an all-star I don't care what the chart say I don't care it's kind of like a rod strickland thing it's like yes as not an all star but you know he's an awesome. Yeah those don't don't use that as that was the same summer Evan. Turner got like one hundred. Seventeen million from the blazers twenty seventeen. That's what it was twenty seventeen. It was decided that durant sign with the warriors. It was like it was the worst caps going up there. Twenty sixteen twenty the CAP. The cap is going up so these these contracts won't look BEN FIGURES All right moving on. Let's get to it. Let's let's top five are starting five of the day These are become fun. I've really enjoyed these last week. We did the or the last show on Friday. We did the We build our teams using guys from you can only use one guy from each conference I was slowly. Losing my mind as the draft was unfolding. I had a strategy going in and I blew it So go back and listen to that if you want we. We had some fun People were sending responses With their own teams and people were putting together some fun team so I like that idea that I'm going to like these ideas we're doing so today. We are doing the top five title Games one by the wrong team. And what constitutes the wrong team It's it's not necessarily that. We're saying the better team didn't win. We're not doing that. Move or it's like the better team lost tonight. The refs screwed this team. They should have won. Whatever whatever the story line the what what have you it would have been more fun. Had the losing team won in our opinion and this is we should preface it as always eight. This is our opinion. We're not speaking for all of America. I'm just speaking for myself. So this is not the these are the official rankings. Got This is not official. But that's what my that's what I've learned. I've gone through all the lists as long as it doesn't say the official or like the. You cannot argue this top ten episodes of Seinfeld and it's not even close where you're saying opinion. You're saying it's not even close pain as kind of like really like secular like very nuanced and like very specific and like what are you are the best starbursts. And it's not even close. No one's ever said that is that is that why I think that's what I slowly started like carrying about the Internet. Because I swear to God like I I should. I should be the Internet historian because I sorta got like when when I was on twitter. Initially way back in the nine ten like. That wasn't twitter you. You aren't getting on there and say like I think Tommy. Pickles is the best rug rat. Time anyone who says Jellicoe can kiss my ass like that wasn't what twitter was for. Twitter was just for like John. Maher would tweet something funny. Daredevil would say like you know the the Durham Bulls raging boll made or whatever. I don't know I'm trying to. I'm trying to channel Dan Rochelle's brain and I can't even do it Yeah Dare Novella tweet nonsense like that was pretty much all it was and then the moment I start realizing that like finding success on twitter or like being personality on twitter required Lake chiming in with like nonsense like that was like what the hell is going on and then the Internet's never really anyway. That's not what we're doing. I will say that twitter I joined twitter may twentieth just realized that I saw the other day. I've been on twitter for ten years and my first tweets were all about lost. I was rewatching loss. And all I was doing with tweeting I have my friends with. Hashtag lost thoughts. And that's what it used to be just like stupid stuff like that whereas like I didn't care about anyone of the people that I was trying to tweet with and here we are now now. People tweet yellow starbucks for the masses fundamental enough enough of that. Let's get to it Let's go. Let's let's work backwards like we always do a number five. I'll let you go first. The floor is yours. What TITLE GAME. did did the college basketball. God's get wrong okay. Easy enough and this is probably number five of my list. Because I think it's so self explanatory and it's because of One name and that's the cardiac pack In nineteen eighty three team that won the ACC tournament just to get in the field Decided to go on a ridiculous run where they basically became the class at the ACC in a year where the AC had Ralph Sampson Michael Jordan and all of these other great basketball players in the SEC. At the time somehow was Sidney Lowe Renzo Charles and Jim valvano GOING INSANE. At the end we are. We are imagined running around they beat Houston By slamma Jamma a team that I think They look a black mark on the record because of this game because they lost on an air ball that turned into an alley oop and if I were to rewrite history. I know it was great. The Jimmy V. Had this moment. I think it's a. It's a great story as the cardiac and tournament than you know led to what we saw. Kimba the future in two thousand ten or twenty seven So that's you know I I don't want to lose that but I also feel like Houston lost a lot of credibility by losing that game and if they win that national championship we look back. Houston and that. Whole run with the different purview or rely. Akeem and Clyde. That's like one of the greatest dynasties in college basketball. Yeah it's happened. We've lost that which I think hurts. Which is why I think that If we could reverse it. Maybe Houston wins. So you're not you're not saying. Nc State should have lost as much as you're saying Houston deserves to win if you earned a title like they get a title during this window time and their reputation in the future even though it shouldn't because we know that they were the better team and then all those years later. Bryce Alford has the exact same shot kind of a called goaltending when he airballs Shore Against Smu. Yes it was not it was not. It was not Goldstein. And say it shouldn't have been guilty. It's obviously knuckled. It wasn't wasn't i? Just WanNa say this for their six victories. Two points or less. I mean come on state and like Houston. How much would be different if she doesn't win that if NC state like the inferiority complex is even even stronger goodness we care about Jimmy V. Like I mean. I think we still care because he's still tight with Dickie and coach k. And he's still sort of had. Its Persona himself that I think You know when his cancer diagnosis hits and he goes to the SP's and all that like you could still see it playing out. Blake. Does it resonate as much. If he's not a title winning coach that everyone remembers running out on the floor his arms up and the miracle that NC state one at all. And all that kind of stuff. I don't know I don't know that's interesting. It's interesting that you're taking away all that inspiration. The Jimmy V. The speech the money that's been raised by the V. Foundation trying to take all that away from sites eight very interesting that you want to undo all of that yes. I'm taking it all that way. Just Clyde Drexler came alive. You could say we were on a dynasty team strip all that away. It's not worth it. Spn is lost all of its money for college basketball. But Yes for for the sake of Clyde Drexler. Who are all fine? Yellows do that all right. Yeah that's all right number five on my list is I think this is what started the whole idea of doing this because I think I casually mentioned the wrong team won this title game and then from there. We got the idea to actually power rank. These mine is the two thousand five title Game North Carolina Illinois again. Sort of the same thing as you were. I'm not really discrediting North Carolina as much because I think If this was like say two thousand nine North Carolina or two thousand seventeen North Carolina. I would have this much much higher but Carolina winning. Oh five was kind of a cool story because Roy finally got over the Hump and got his title Carolina. It'd been twelve years since you wanNA title and the the road since Dean had left a little rocky and to have it like kind of stabilized by this was was was kind of cool it was. It was interesting but they won't only team. Winning the title is it isn't all time travesty. That seems so fine. The team was so so good And every time you look back on it it's just like I was it. D Brown the kind of put something out on twitter that Recently yeah where he put out like a it was a shot at him in the The locker room his head down after the game..
Creepy crawlies, Quarks and Counting
"Now with me to help answer the questions that you're sending us from the University of York behavioral scientists. She works on insects. Eleanor drink water. What have you been up to you telling elements yes. I'm very keen beekeeper and I made the mistake of not zipping up my the other day and and I can tell you that that that was bitterly regretted. The next day is very much a mark of pride among beekeepers but you're not appropriate beekeeper until you've at least one and flexes yeah. That's a bad thing when that happens but if you work with do occasionally gets stung how's it. How's it going the beekeeping fund. We've haven't absolutely lovely queen in one of heights at the moment. The other one's a bit more grumpy so they're a bit more of a it's true what my brother keeps. He says the same thing he said as the Queen's get older odor and also certain colonies just have a particularly aggressive behavior exactly something to do with the Queen's squirting out ramones that keeps everyone calm as the Queen Ages. She makes less all of them. Yes exactly that's that's. That's exactly it in the end the character of the Queen or you know the chemicals that Sheikh producers has a really big impact on on the behavior of all the other bees in the colony so so yeah so if you have a really nasty queen than you can swap out for really friendly Queen and some of the hive becomes a lot more friendly to work with credible. Yes some no. It was much opening unfortunately but yes definitely enough to be getting on with you so any questions you have about insects. Perhaps even bees stings beekeeping. Ask Ask Elinor. Dan Gordon's also with US dance and exercise physiologist is Anglia Ruskin University. He's also a Paralympian and it's going to world record and there was a lot of coverage in recent weeks about athletes using sports drinks and not been terribly good for their dental health. Yes about I think about ten days ago quite solarge raging study that was looking at elite athletes and they reported the dental health and elite athletes was was far far worse than the general population of Oh. The paper didn't fully attributed it to they wanted to make conclusions was they thought it was down to the con- sports drinks that are consumed which mostly these high carbohydrates looked sugar. How's your dentition during you got away with it. I think what an advocate in sports the practitioners do then just because you don't have energy to do the events no and I think in the end what they're really getting exposes has got to be greater scrutiny of the health of the teeth and the athletes when competing one of the things we have to do before we went to the Paralympics. We every athlete have dental check which sounds crazy things the limbic games actually you wouldn't think that teeth of that important but actually the worst thing you can have an. Olympic Games is fake and so one of the things that's really really being advocated. Now is that part of the Athlete Support Program Part of lifestyle management should be to actually monitor the health of the of the teeth warning people there. Is this risk they'll. They'll probably take more. Oh care about washing their mouth outs to get rid of that. I think yeah more used to math clean teeth more regularly for example as part of the training routine not so any questions about exercise exercise physiology how the body works sports and sports fitness. Danny man now next to Dan is friend. Let's see what did the wonderful. Fran is Cambridge University physicist. She is an astrophysicist cosmologists interested in how the universe at large works but you're a stand up. Comedian allows guys right. I'm GonNa do the horrible thing because then tell us a joke I won't do that going. It's going pretty well. I'm in writing a new show at the moment by kind of the philosophy of science and what we're doing when we're doing science so that has been a bit of a step back from the day to day if my research are you poking fun at it or you kind of making light of what life is a scientist and researcher is like is that I'm poking fun at but also I think a serious a serious element over and I hope people will come away knowing a bit more by you know I've been told I'm participating in the scientific typic- methods that I never really examined what that meant until now you're gonNA find out you're also saying to me just before we started about the story that came out earlier this year the first picture of a black hole or rather the first impression of of a black hole and that's going to be made into a movie rather than just a bunch started pictures. Now you're saying yeah that's right so you might remember the event. Horizon Telescope a few months ago published the first image of a black hole or more pedantically the shadow of a black hole support and then I can do a full color movie of the black hole which is going to be really incredible both in terms of what it will teach us about astrophysics in general relativity and also just just super cool you can just you'll be able to watch your black hole on youtube or you could just watch SANTELLI programs which amount to much of the same no content visible whatsoever. Thank you very much so anything to do with how the universe works and space anything that please send those questions in from be happy to consider those also with this bobby seagull who needs relief introduction. He's originally for comb -versities. Mathematician and teaches maths taught teach kismet and actually doing teddy program their movement have new going around the country looking at inventions and things going for those who made a reminder minded is the universe challenge icon the icon of icons. I'm his friend were. You're pretty you're pretty optimistic as well thank you that's very good areas and outgoing outgoing but we had a first series initially looking at a genius guy to Britain's traveling around minicar imagine like top gear meets. Qa but sort of exploring all the curious bits of Britain and the new series is called a genius guy to the age of Invention Sarah can I get back in on minicar go around the UK but this time it's quite chronological so looking from seventeen fifty thousand nine hundred and exploring Britain's discoveries and inventions in that period. Why did you pick that period because it's particularly golden period. There was some of the reason I I think it's the golden nature that period because if you look before that is sort of Britain still pre enlightenment before industrial times and then in that period of seventeen fifty nine hundred lots lots of invention discovers chemistry's discovered physics signed the word sign scientist comes into being Darwin Thompson so lots of great figures of science emerge any particularly stand out moment because there was are when you making telly programs they're always funny things that we never see on screen or or other things that are just well moments that you never thought you'd find yourself doing so so what am I stand up moments as she isn't a stand up moment for me but is a silent moment for the show so we visit the cabinet Cambridge and we get to hold one of the original cathode ray tubes at J J Thomson used. I was too much of a chicken to hold it. No I think it's like someone else's baby you can look at. I admire it but if you want to hold it no no no. I'M NOT GONNA hold the baby the big quite tempting to hold it and they go oops because the same thing sort of happened to me because because when I was in South Africa when I first went to South Africa when I was at a conference in this big American guy came up to me at the conference and he said tomorrow going to pick you up from your hotel and I'm going to take you somewhere and show you something something GonNa Change Your Life forever now. Of course you never met this guy you think I can arrange things and actually he took me to the University of the voters rand in Johannesburg where he's professor of Paleoanthropology. This is Lieber. Who's now been on this program. A number of times in this discovered not one not two but three new species of early human ancestor and he had in this wooden box the university the face the complete facial skeleton of the Taung Child which is the specimen which is the australopithecus holy type in other words all all of the Australia with specimens that we have early human ancestors maybe three million years ago so they're all compared to this one which was discovered by Raymond Dart at about one hundred years ago now and it's really fabulous. They've even got the endo cost the fossil remnant of the brain of this thing and I was holding this in my hands is three million years. Old is the only only one in existence and am I did get tempted to go whoops but Lee was very very cordiality hands undermine all the time. 'cause you think how this is just prices but I know exactly what you mean now for your home. If you guys in the studio we've got a little guess who that we run through these sorts of programs we give you a sequence of clues across the show and as the show unfolds unfolds we give you more of them and the first one. I've got here. It's it's an animal. Give you that much but can you work out. What makes this particular sound okay. That was the sound it makes any clues. you want to hear the other very fussy this lot. They won't hear it again. Okay anyone got any ideas seagull. It's not a bobby seagull. No okay more clues coming up eleanor. Let's kick off with this one view from Marianna. What which is the most intelligent insect do not base because maybe they well okay so I have been asked this before and this is always a really hard question because I am incredibly and I believe that all insects are incredibly intelligent in all sorts of different ways and we haven't even begun to scratch the surface of what insects can do it could be the case that we haven't even discovered the cleverest insect but if I was to choose one based on research about an individual it'll who's pretty clever. It might have to be the bees. I'm afraid some really cool research has shown that bees can tell apart the difference between different painting style so if you showed them a monet and Picasso you can get them to learn the differences and then be able to generalize to other paintings and also prefer. I don't know maybe that'd I'll be a follow up paper. I hope it would also they can tell the difference between people's faces and they can remember a face for two days which is incredible. There was also study that the the researchers at Queen Mary Invest of London published a couple years ago where they showed be another be rolling a ball into a goal and the be that was watching then how to get the B The ball into the into the goal and got a treat yeah it was social learning and more than that they they did a follow on from that which was even more cool so trained on one particular ball and they had other balls in the area which they blew down while they were learning but then in the in the second round they unglued the balls goals and the B. would learn the concept and then would apply it to closeable so then they would perform the same action but on a separate they weren't just learning out this ball goes in in in the hall they they could like generalize which is incredible if you think about it and what else could have favorite insect in the studio. Everyone should the CICADA. I know why you're going to come on prime number years. Don't every thirteen or seventeen years. Carter has emerged don't they they do to minimize the chances of their mating year. Coinciding with predators credited exactly that on a Friday afternoon these cicadas smarter than mice from Friday to look. Maybe even smart in nature eh provocative for Dan favorite insect realize possibly the butterfly just purely because I just love the whole process from Chrysalis the butterfly but actually just the sheer variety of butterflies just it's just mind boggling liotta amazing feats of navigation butterflies and monarch butterflies example all the way from Canada down to New Mexico geico kind of thousands of miles
Inside Donald Sterling's Clippers Era
"Grew up in los angeles in the eighties and i remember watching clipper games on t._v.'s a kid. The games themselves weren't weren't really anything to talk about. I mean the team almost never won and yet the voice of the clippers ralph lawler. Somehow made me care well. That was my job and part of the craft. I just felt that was my job to find a way to keep people interested did in a game. That very often wasn't very interesting because we had a lot of those lottie years. That weren't very interesting but there's always a story to tell if fifteen win season there's some young player or players that you've got a story to tell about them that that humanizes them. That makes people likes them makes people root for them. How rookie was a master at making the clippers likable no matter how much they lost honestly think a lot of fans tuned in for ralph more than the basketball because god knows there was no one at the actual arena except for penny marshall and billy crystal. How did you become a clipper fan because no one was a clipper. They asked me to play. They said listen. We only get four guys tonight. Can you still dribble sports arena. Yeah i had tickets for awhile and we they were great but there was no challenge you know and then a friend of mine calls it's come on. Do you want to go see the clippers play as a all right. There was nobody there. I mean it was a triple double meant. There were three couples. Uh at every level the clippers screamed not showtime but that didn't seem to bother donald sterling or at least it didn't seem to register register. He got a lot of negative press but it was attention. People knew his name and he liked that. That's kind of all. He really wanted to be the center center of attention. That's why he started throwing his party's. They were fabulous donald and shelly sterling's infamous white parties so called because i guess we're expected to come wearing white. Everybody came in white except for donald who got to wear black. L. is just fabulous. It was just a big white party. The biggest white party took place at the end of summer as a way to kick off the basketball season. We'd have the players there. They'd get up on stage and a lot of the fans and a lot of ticket holders. Were there down in the white. Show intel tell don casey attended the party's when he was a coach for the clippers westie cups like this high so you can't drink too much wine little hotdog sticks in a multi-million ekberg. His bailable white party is notorious after uh-huh one time with my wife i i was never allowed to go again. It wasn't quite my style anyway but was so seedy an oily about it is he'd have forgive me but it's true he'd have like grade c actors and actresses. The hangers on the people wanted to get back in show business but he'd also mingle mingle with people who were stars. Billy crystal was one any hired more than just impersonators. There were some lovely ladies walking turnaround. Donald called them hostesses. He had them at every party. He threw he'd actually advertised for them in the paper looking for california model types but they were glorified. Call girls there to look good and entertain. The male guests and shelley had to smile and endure it another public humiliation at the hands for husband too much one. The shelly said maybe not enough. There was always a photographer roadster. He had to have a private photographer for everything everything he did. Give a hand to america where he were walking around him. His voice was talking. He was like yes fabulous. This the mirror quentin richardson was drafted by the clippers in the first round of the two thousand draft he was from chicago played college ball there and then declared for the draft after his sophomore year he was barely twenty years old when he landed in los angeles inexperienced his first donald sterling party. We know we were there whereas the is is his guest athletes but then you had i guess you would say his friends and his normal guest is like you know definitely not the same type hyper looking crowd is we are and so for us. We will kind of standing there and just check everything out and it's like you know. This is for a lot out of us the first time this is the first preseason team type owners meaning or house or any of that. We've ever been to have been involved in so i'm i'm dislike. I'm be respectful say will serve because then i'm over here may want it all and we wanted with player los angeles. This was the best part of the party for donald sterling showing off his players. Don't need have the individual players. Stand up and tell why they love l._a. One of his favorite questions and so you'd have all these guys standing ended up you know danny manning and charles smithson yom mark jackson and stand up and say why they i love l._a. And there's a lot of beautiful girls aren't there and i'm you hong. Come on please. I remember four wilt chamberlain who was getting up there and he was almost at the end of his life and he looked very rail thin to me but he says what what am i doing here. I see you you tell me he goes. I don't even know this guy. It was almost heartbreaking. I was just like okay. I'm ready for somebody to make the first move so soon as somebody else leave. I'm gone like i just don't want to be the first one to leave but from out of here he would hold your hand and just would not let go was it was really really uncomfortable. I mean all my god you. He just wanted to someplace else. The thing is as awkward as these parties were. Donald never seemed happier. He got to be the bell of his own ball and for a few hours a captive audience had to at least pretend to think it was really cool that he owned the worst human basketball because in real life no one was donald sterling so donald found ways to manufacture that for himself to force the conversation to the fact that he he owned the clippers whoever happened to walk up he would ask him advice about the team he would go to the airport after a game and the baggage handlers i would say donald sterling over to me and said. Do you think we should trae. Danny manning you talk to the waiter to restaurant talked to usher at the games is famous. This thing is what i think of my coach just as likely he'd be listening to a cabdriver as he would be to a general manager a scout in bach loud he would call me sometimes was late at night. You know i'm roy firestone. You know everybody. You've watched all these interviews. Tell me about larry brown and why he should be the coach of our team. It's ten hindu eleven at night. It's the owner of the clippers. I'm not a basketball coach analysts. He goes roy. Your opinion matters you know he called billy crystal said. What do you think of larry brown. If you say i should hire him. I'm hiring them. Billy crystal must've told him to hire larry brown because he did and it was a good higher in one thousand nine hundred and again in nineteen ninety-three brown actually led the clippers to the playoffs for the first time since before donald on the team but then

"Passing Danny Manning, an Oscar Robertson. It makes sense. Got Danny Manning, Oscar Robertson, Chris Clements at three household names. Exact soon to be household names. Exactly. Fears that can't gets to the free throw a chance to shoot to an extent is three point lead Xavier musketeers. I think more than anything with the friars have to do is they have to change. The momentum has hankins knocks down the first free throw me everything has just been dominated by Xavier in this half six of seven from the field. Great decision. Making driving the floors hankins knocks down the second shot. He subbed out of the game for wellish. Very good start to the game for hankins. And for the musketeers Atkins now has died and sabers lead is five at matches their biggest of the game. Let's see what the friars have coming out of the time out now. Ashton bounces it down low Watson inside, and he exerted his all kinds of physical energy. But he got the ball of the rim up and over the top of a three point gave again a great play. Call by Cooley. Keep it simple. Get it to your big guy down. Low a nice physical play again to try and change the tide here in the first half. Marshall right side of the lane is running shot is off the glass and good. Haven't heard a whole lot of Marshall since the early stages of the game. And a great move there. He has such good touches the one hand push shot off the glass back. They go to watch on the left block turnaround shot back iron. No, good rebound. Four and take it out of the air by Jones goes eight rule five point lead. And the basketball comes good driving in the lane eurostepped shop locked away by Watson wasn't even a eurostepped as much as. Gazelle was just hopping across the lane. The got knocked over the end live. Well, we talked about Scruggs and Gooden to the leading score is on his team being relatively quiet in the first half. I liked the aggressive move thereby Gooden getting to the basket really been the story line for the musketeers in this half, forcing the issue getting into that paint. Here's scrubs up on top two men ought to be come here side for goodness. Open three pointers on the way in good on a are doing everything. Right. Just the ball movement. Whatever they are seeing defensively from the friars. They are countering it inside outside. Just a perfect execution in the early stages of the second half out here. At the dunk is stunned the home team down by eight one three from a leak white is a brick and the rebound again down the Tyree. Jones for Xavier in the problem here with friars is they're just not a high scoring team. If they get down late in the game. They just don't have the firepower to get back into it partial for three and he got it to fall for twenty three feet away. There's at other time how call Brett Cooley. He's got he's got a call. It before this team. This thing gets too far away from them. They're down eleven points. And it's just an offensive juggernaut right now for the musketeers biggest lead.

"So what i've been doing for the last month is just basically nothing did a lot of reading a read james comey's book which was pretty pretty interesting read elgin baylor's book which was disappointing because elgin baylor was the first basketball player that ever caught my eye caught my eye a lot of people might remember him at the end when he's with the lakers think is next year last year he played like two games he blew out his achilles he came back the next game next year he played seven games he was done he retired they put in jim mcmillan a colombian in his stove in his spot and the lakers went three three three thirty three in a row and then go on with a championship beating the knicks but i remember him before his knees when even in the early sixties man was something special and great as he is is a ball player top ten you can argue top five i might think i put them in the top five he's the worst general manager in any sport and what bothered me is he worked for this nut this racist donald sterling all these years and you reading the book and he never said anything he said he didn't want to get fired because they weren't hiring many black general managers and i just wanted to fix this franchise and the best story in the book was when they drafted danny manning is number one picking a drafted and danny manning and his agent and elgin baylor they go to donald sterling's house starting to go she as donald sterling comes to the door in a bathrobe and so they're all talking making chitchat and then the the agent starts the goshi asian so if you want eight for ten and maybe you'd get nine right so he gives an offer in sterling says this kind of high so sterling gives them a number which like you want eight he's offering to and the.
