"But this arkansas. An game as much as you didn't wanna pay attention or sec nation meeting. I'm interested in your thoughts. It feels like there's obviously and i hate the who's got the more pressure but there's a ton more pressure on. Am at this point. Arkansas seems to turn a really good spot as much as you don't really wanna fully buy in on the high pressure arkansas. I mean they're all there hasn't been all season a free passes all the way and there's enormous pressure on. Am because if they lose this game. I think they've mississippi state. The next week can't then alabama which means they've got to beat alabama or to salvage the season right. I think so well to salvage the season according to their expectations. And by the way. I actually i don't wanna diminish why am fans expect that much because i think they should. You've got a coach. Jimbo fisher that it'd be like fifty million dollars a year like a game and and listen. They have a talented roster and growing into the season. If you if you look at the roster it's not even just hey. They're talented on paper. No they're legitimately talented and we haven't seen that necessarily translate as well as we thought. Some of it has to do with quarterback injuries. I think it is a quarterback situation because everybody expected hanes king to be great and now he's hurt. I heard somebody say today. Well you know kazadi you know. He's not kellen mine. Well nobody really thought was all that great. I know how many am fans would you hear from that. Would rip on all of them and listen. I'm not even sure. I mean at jimbo fisher as he should is given kellyn. Mind a ton of credit for what he's done and for even some of the numbers that he put up at am. But i think jimbo was so excited about hangs king or even talking to him at sec media days leading into it you felt like the majority of jimbo's positively about the way he outlook on this. And i want to play driven. No but i can. You know what it is. So here's a key. You gotta learn how to read lips but sometimes i get a little murky there but if you can read his lips you know a little bit more about what he's looked. What what can all these fans expect to see tomorrow here on. Sec nation. well we've got more promo question. Oh were you told to ask yes. Oh you're such a about bad..

"I actually had to wear it over here which i don't usually do but it was because i realized it was so difficult to get on for. Whatever reason that. I didn't want to have that. Have you ever had this. You haven't because you everything fits you really well for you. Get stuck in a shirt and like you. Can't you don't know if your life is going to be over because you're stuck in the shirt you can't get it up or down in a changing room. It's the worst that no one is ever really interested in what i'm wearing. Which probably isn't always the case for you. I will say people are interested when you when you wear a beanie or when you wear that one sweater that you have that almost it's very stately and you know that one. I had it on here about four. Gonna say you can bring that back later on the chest abbas theater so so let's talk about this show. Tomorrow was in your meeting essay. Your me interloper. I one thing. I don't want to know about Sec nation is what's going on it upset. It messes up my equilibrium. Actually what's happening in this year. They showed a clip at this meeting today. And i'm thinking. I just roman and i were talking about just like i. I was watching my show for the first time. Because i don't watch this stuff. You'd never watch yourself back now. i try not to. it's too disturbing. I think first of all my feet are up on this looking at my phone looking around. And i'm trying to think like well paul. You did have a moment last week on. sec nation. It was last week knows week before where we were back from break and everybody was telling you back from but you weren't totally sure in so i was. I was saying to you. Paul back on tv like three or four times and finally you realize people thought we were faking it. No it's totally real. We'll actually we don't plan anything that we do. Well i just think that's the best approach totally. Yeah well. I mean the good thing about you is that you are at your best when you are completely off the cuff and unscripted. I mean i have another life going on in the morning. I'm yeah i've i've got a real estate operation out. Yeah i well. I was gonna say i thought your other life was at. You're trying to find something to eat for breakfast. Which is always a battle last week. You finally ditch those crackers. Going more of them usually route. It seems crackers or breakfast to them usually go poorly. No i just. I've given up on that okay. Yeah we don't need that. So i gotta ask you because i know that you've sort of been pumping the brakes a little bit on arkansas..

"Us went undefeated an olympic games so we never lost. So that is the weight on your shoulders. Every round even during the pool. Play and then when you get to the quarter-finals. We play team australia. Who beat us a month before. And you don't have that repeat failure. And i'd say failure because a lot of people when we lose his failure is gold or failures. So you're carrying weight into the quarters if you don't win the quarters you can't metal can't get to the medal round and then once you get to the semi's you can't lose or you can't you can't get to the gold medal round so didn't enjoy the journey but i'm enjoying it right and you should by the way in the history of this show coach's the first person and i love this being a dog lover who who brought her dog to the set whether he's behaving he's behaving what less a chance to do but i'm curious. Though as a player you feel a level of pressure. I'm sure but it. You do move on and a part of the team as a coach in you. You wanna win for south carolina you've won and loss but is it. How different is it. Being the head coach of the united states olympic team. Does it feel even even more suffocating. It is is. It's a it's a lonely place to be because only you.

I wanted to wanted to get your thoughts on on danny white the they d for ut and and what do you think he's been able to accomplish in short time on the job. So far knoxville. Well i think he what he had to do was get some stability in chaotic situation. And you know. He made the higher to josh hypol- and he really He resigned patillo or the baseball coach. Wise i think those are essential things. And i think now he's got to figure out a way to to bring in more revenue and and raise money which which really are critical components. How have you seen his performance. I personally been impressed with him. So far You know. I believe he's. He's starting to compete donor interest. And and again i think he's reignited the fan base to a degree about bringing in a a modern high powered offense that really just premium programs never seen before and and recently in a move that you know quite frankly i think long been overdue Through one of his initiatives ut's going be permanently honoring by way of statues. Around newman stadium. The of of lester mcclain and jackie walkers congress holloway and martin and and. I'm sure you're aware there. Those are pioneers racial equity and s. You i agree with you on that. I think of all the things that he's done that might be the most Significant and i would take my hat off to that because the all four deserve this honor and a couple of them it is way way overdue. Hey thank you for the call. We are heading to a break restoring in the next hour in more of your phone calls..

"That like the ethos of being an elite athlete. I don't know what is n- it was my hero. I it was all about how we could better. Our city life is really a marathon. Starting august twenty third finally listened on sirius. Xm pandora stitcher. Wherever you get your podcast in the longest time you would say wrestlemanias are super bowl but it feels like summer slam is almost like that too. I mean i think we're expecting fifty five thousand people Just you know as many activities week tonight. I have special olympics. Tomorrow i have media row and certain events Around summer slam so it feels just as big. I know for me Missing wrestlemainia this year. This is my wrestlemainia so i can't wait to shine news about. You're not being there but we'll leave that to the The trades let me ask you though you just said something that caught my attention. Fifty five thousand people are. I know you've played in front of bigger. But what was it like when you walked out there for the first time in your career and it's one thing couple hundred five thousand ten thousand fifteen thousand but that's just seems like it's it's a gargantuan crowd i mean what is it like. What does it feel like when when when all those is forget television Or on you know. It's nice on crazy. I think it's harder to perform in front of seven people which i have done before but stadium like allegiant I don't know like i. I hate to bring my dad back up. But you know how he says he never being able to feel an audience and control the emotions whether it's good or bad doing cheering wooing whatever it is if just feeling like no other and to perform and to i can't even this so my largest one hundred and one people at at and t. Stadium wrestlemainia thirty. Two and the reaction is almost later. Because it's so big you almost have to take the time longer because there's so many people But the energy you feel it as a performer. i just. that's what i miss. The most during covert is. Will i ever get that feeling again of wrestling in front of five thousand ten thousand twenty five fifty five like this weekend Really can't explain unless you're in it. i mean obviously. If you've ever been to wrestlemainia summer slam royal rumble. Money in the bank. The list goes on even in the audience. You feel that energy. Not even other performers Yeah just you can't even put it into words what it feels like. It's just as if it's just the most amazing Experience i and for the performer. Sherwood you mentioned The crowd of seven. Where was that developmental on. The was an xt. It was fcw in tampa florida. We used to run shows outta there and sometimes it was seven people. Sometimes it was what be both now. that's scary. Let me tell you being able to hear every noise. Yeah that's intimidating. Well you you played High school volleyball so you probably were used to small crowds where you're not completely different. Putting on a persona. I mean sport. I mean praying for is different. This is abc. Being is being. I mean you have many house on at one time and public speaking. Not that you know a promos kind of like public speaking having to go on and dress up and not be sure of yourself or your character. What you're doing in front of seven people is scary. At that time. I had no idea now he not asked me. I have no problem. More than marry her. but intimidating. I think i feel like seven people watching this show. Sometimes so don't don't feel bad badly off it doesn't matter what you say There's no reaction no you can't be i. I want to go back to your dad for one second though because In this is an old story. But i mean you grew up and every every famous son or daughter son or daughter of a famous person has their own stories. But maybe because i felt like a know ric flair show. Well i i just can't i can't imagine growing up in that house. I really can't or anywhere near that house or even calling him my dad. I don't mean that as an insult but we've all seen the documentaries. We've all seen the movies. How did you overcome all that. I say that with respect to ric flair. of course. my. Dad didn't really have my brother. And i in the business or in the limelight. I just played sports. And doing my homework and eating my head shambles. Very thornton's and my dad or very grounded a camps when my dad was home. You're taking me to volleyball camp or basketball camp I started out as a gymnast. You never miss the meat when he was off so I just i guess. It wasn't hard to be grounded. Because i didn't know anything else. I mean charlotte. North carolina was small at the time and sports which is important to me. And maybe it would. Just because i had that team bonding and a coach but You know people going to with me. Just add lucy and emotional sometimes. Well we do love him and He he's been a great friend of ours. And we wish you the best. I know i know i cannot imagine how many interviews you have lined up all week tomorrow on radio row but it was so nice to make time for us And your former high school is is. I could probably throw a long bomb and hit it from where i'm sitting right now so it's great to have you on. Thanks for having me. i appreciate it. You got a good luck this week. In charlotte flare Joining us and i wonder do you really when it comes to www after we're still mock isn't preordained Who i doubt. There's a lot of luck involved other than trying not to get hurt.

"Arkansas and then somehow south carolina and i guess you may don't better make probably got into balance off arkansas. What happened there was a florida. State was invited and coach. Bowden said no way. What hall when the sec. So they needed a school from the east and this is strange. How these things take place so the next time they came when the conference broke up anyway. the the big twelve they. They were smart. They offered baylor And texas tech. You know so they could get texas. And that's that's that's how they got. There was strange these things happen. I sat in the meetings for five years with george welsh and damn that. Try to get Virginia tech in in the lake and the only motivation he had at the time was simply because virginia tech. Get guys in school from the tidewater which is great high school football in virginia. The virginia couldn't get them at school and so he wanted tech in there so they had to go by. Acc that's you know because all member though forty eight. oh sure absolutely. Yeah so many. He didn't want them taking those propagates anymore. So it's raw from you know strange These things happen. But i thought i'd just throw out a couple of stories that are real today and some of these people going crazy about their teams time. I know you're tennessee. Grab it that fellow call before i. I'm curious about something because you know we're talking so much about these super league's but having coached at rice and duke and and having been so many places what's going to happen to schools like that wants. This explosion is consummated. now. I think you're gonna see some changes You know i. I can see Espn with conference and then trying to put something in with some of them that are survival. You know like the oklahoma state's west virginia You know You know some of those schools baylor Who knows what where the wind up there. Some just like Picky told me in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine there. Some that are going to be left out exact. Don't bring which already happened rice. And and smu back there in split up southwest conference And i don't want to name any schools and you know i've seen some articles lately and You know that Who knows Who can compete new camp. But i but it's pretty obvious who can and it still comes down to those states. You know in your tennessee guy. Nobody really appreciated what The dickey and you know just my person's memory brain problem here one the name of phillip fulmer. Yeah yeah nobody really realizes what they did and being able to recruit out of state. Recruitment georgia recruit in florida And to do at tennessee did under them especially when it national championship. Because if you look at it the powers have great high school football. You know there's enough great players in alabama for auburn and alabama. They still go out in georgia. Georgia gets all here. Great high school football a lot like texas. She should be in texas. Got the best. High school football in america florida's got the. They've got probably the greatest number of great athletes you know and all but you're in you're out those are the teams that are going to be at the top you know just works out like Some of the others get to flash up there then they ncwa put some patience everything but You know. I think this places that are natural powers stay natural powers and They've stadiums get bigger facilities. Are unbelievable as you. Well know and the rest are gone. I is just what i can call themselves. Division one hundred six of them but There's going to be a couple of and that's it. I think you've hit it pretty good lately with the big ten What their assets are and yes in one of my former coaches play. Helton's coach southern cal. Right is going to stay. What happens out there now coach. What a pleasure to hear from you and You be well and hopefully we can do this again. Well thank you paul. I really really watching you. I never thought. I'd call. But i just thought that so couple of those things out and i've been wanting to do that last week about bobby so but so thanks for having me appreciate. I always our pleasure. Thank you very much. Coach fred goldsmith. Who is a national coach of the year about thirty years ago and coach of course duke and at rice as a head coach. We will take a break more to come as we continue here on a very busy thursday afternoon. You're listening to the paul finebaum show podcast w. fan. You know the summer slam is this weekend. And one of the big stars of that is joining us right now. Charlotte flare doesn't really need an introduction. One of the most famous Wwe stars in the world. Charlotte thank you for for making time. We appreciate it. We've had your dad in here In many many times talking about his love of college football. But never you how are you how are you. I'm doing well. thanks for having me. He does love college football. That's for sure. I'm a little worried about him though because One day he's a georgia fan. The next season seems like he kind of goes with whatever team is where he's okay go. I don't even know how. George intervene data san but Blessing a point. Because talking about your dad would would totally lose lose focus here but then he became an auburn fan. I think stepson was going there. So i'm a little confused but it's not really that important is it. You know he can me on a daily basis. Well let's talk about this weekend. Because i i know in in the year of so much has been missed and it's been different and now that we think we're out of it although some people say we're not what what is it like to finally get back to this event and and to have real people watching my first event in front of an audience. Is that money in the bank and it was hard for me to keep a straight face on my insurance. I'm usually so poised and queen s with air smirk. But when i walked out a girl onto the stage i just couldn't help but smile to see all the kids standing the fans cheering. You really do feel the energy from the audience and of course. Wwe universe is the heartbeat of what we do and not having them even though the thunderdome was You know it kept on. It kept the fans entertained but nothing like having them. There live and hearing the reactions on so you can tell them pretty excited for the saturday early june stadium. No and obviously Vegas not a bad place to to have an event like this for for for those who don't swim in these waters. We know wrestlemainia. We know summer slam. How would you compare and contrast them do own or rent your home sherry do and i bet it can be hard work you know it's easy bundling policies.

"Your phone calls at eight five five to four to seven to eight five. Oh chalked fred next. Who is a good afternoon fred. thanks for calling. you're welcome. you're welcome. I just wanted to give you a holler with a couple of stories. Here that are fact instead of everybody getting so fired up about their teams and everything but he wanted to share with. You will story about bobby bowden and then the inception of the start of this back in the early days with the southwest conference and they Sec but Years ago. I nineteen seventy nine. I just left florida and m. university whereas defensive coordinator down there rudy. Hubbard is going to be in the hall of fame. This year. But i went with. Ken hatfield dear friend of mine. Who we serve together at florida under dickey and he can just taken over the air force kademi and we were in tallahassee recruiting and he can was one that was always when he was young coach. Trying to pick the brains of all right coaches in the country. So he said well. Let's go take a break. And let's go visit bobby bowden. So we went over to visit. Bobby and who i've known from the time apart a. Am he'd been there at Fsu for three years and anyway so ten asked him to coach. Said when the lsu job came open they went after you earlier this year usa. How come you didn't take the job. And i think back of it. Now the chuckle. But bobby's answer. I can remember like sitting there today. He said can he said i'm fifty years old. He all. lsu says a national championship. And if you don't get that he said you're not going to be successful. And he said amount too old for that kind of pressure job and it was interesting because he was obviously turn the fsu program around but it hadn't reached that high yet. So making that statement fifty and then you take a look at the next thirty is coaching when he had a program probably that surpassed Basically inconsistency what lsu's ever done. And so i thought that was interesting to look back now but bobby was great man. When i was head coach. Dookie beat the outta me for five straight years and every year. He put his arm around me said fridge. Just like one of my sons. And i kinda laugh looking at the scoreboard but then when tommy got the clemson he did tommy the same way beating real bad every year. You know so anyway so it was. It was thought does really find a look back with bobby Being in the same tower them for five years. They're getting annoying He's truly truly everything they say. Good about him. You were honored to be on the field with them. Even when he was beating you by forty points you know but let me take it back. I am curious about something and obviously. We're talking to coach fred goldsmith. Who who coach at rice and duke. And i mean you you. You had some pretty tough jobs and your time and came. I mean it's not like you had some some very impressive seasons. Well there were a few. And i enjoyed every bit of it. You know it was fun because you know getting around after thirty years there and One of the biggest. We have ever was going back and beaten arkansas. But we competed well. I'm in texas. And and it was a lot of fun and Has some great kids and matt sign you. Probably know him the football hall of fame noun and everything matt. You wouldn't believe it is but he was three year. Old conference player started for four and out that size then to those guard and We just had a bunch overachievers. It was it was a lot of fun and everything but we were sitting there at the high remember. We used to have those old. Cfa meetings in dallas. Oh yeah and we played golf tournament that day and it was pouring rain just like is here today and doug dickey who co chaffee night or for florida. of course. Kenny was still coach at arkansas. Now is getting ready starving. First year. Reis go sticky when we all had lunch together and we sat there two or three hours because ryan was born and he told us at that time he said things are going to really change. He said there's going to be nothing but superpower conferences just like the nfl. He looked at mason fred. There won't be any place for rice in this. You know and and kind of explain wait was and of course you knew doug dickey from back then when the smartest man i ever ever been around and to sit in a staff meeting him with special back there florida and But you know he was real tight with kramer and you knew this thing was coming well then a couple of years later i was out jogging with our assistant identifying portals and of course frank was who doug worked for arkansas and and Mike was an assistant at Florida i think when douglas there for a while before he went with coach dot but anyway i was jogging assistant at arkansas. He said for it. We're getting ready to go to the sec. And so what. And i went to ask him it and jim i i you know that was not a good deal for On the field financially was great. But were you know we were fighting texas. Am for the top of as a southwest conference every year and they said it was going to happen and they were negotiating all these things. Well then i went onto rice and nineteen eighty nine and nineteen ninety. When it came down the announcement was made right. Go day or so before. Our southwest conference kickoff luncheon and boy that was chaos goes that day but anyway they announced a and m. texas in arkansas. Going south west at southeastern coffers. Well what happened in soon Anyway and then suing time right then that Grant taft was adamantly against grant wisconsin the dean of the coaches and the conference with time. Something's beeping he still there. We're still here coach. Oh okay but anyway grant. Staff was the dana the and he gets up and he makes this announcement by arkansas. Because they're getting ready to introduce jack crowe. The head coach just can't gone to clemson and arkansas. The any column the iraq or the south west of nineteen ninety nine thousand nine hundred strong words and so but grant path wasn't through with it then. The governor of the state of texas was ready day. Man richard she might remember her and she was baylor grad and of course the the texas leaving the league with arkansas was going break that thing up and so grant went to her and she god i think she was a democratic governor and i think the democrats were in charge of you know they have the majority in the legislature time when they came back and they went to the president's of texas and texas a. and m. and i forget the now paul oil fund but there's big oil fund in texas funds all capital expenses of buildings being built only on the a. and m. and texas campuses. None of the other universities. And i mean that was there. I mean they were the to bel- cows system well they went back in the legislature told though till two presidents yes you can go but you can't get any more money from that fun and that was the end of texas and texas a and moving on but that's that's how come they didn't move at the time arkansas and then somehow south carolina and i guess you may don't better make probably got into balance off arkansas..

So when you think about that is helps you ease your way into giving them all of you. Because they're they're they're given given all of them to to me in our coaching staff coach. You've done this countless times. How would you compare over other than the terrifying. Climb to try to win the gold medal but just this olympic experience from from the others that you have had so different. The crowd being very limited. If at all Cova overriding everything. How how how do you compare. And contrast what you've experienced in your past actually was pretty boring but it was pretty boring because you you know we. We played japan twice. And i think them not having a crowd. Kurt them more than hurt us. But we were. We were prepared like you know. The wnba was in the wobble The summer before we were in the bubble in ncwa tournament. So i i knew what was to be expected with there being no crowd. No anything and we're locked down. You know in a hotel so that was pretty normal for what we've been through this this past year and a half well coach I'm glad you made it. I i don't think this. I don't think i could have talked to you. If you had wanted that we would have just been possible so Before you proud of you. Congratulations and i know you've had so many incredible memories of your olympic time and you're national championship and everything else you've done. This has to be Something that you'll never forget. Never thanks paul. Thanks for all ways up. Captured the moment And allowing us to relive it and it was a beautiful experience and we. We're glad to bring the gold medal. Our country great to have you can watch see you. thanks so much. Dawn staley Of all her accomplishments.

"That they had interest in before they express that really had no interest in coaching a nba wmba. Not none like no ounce week it may be is because nobody really interested. In the moment they had interest in me i had interested in it For and i think mainly because of the channels because it was something different. Something new Something that not very many college coaches have had success right away anyway so meeting up to the end it was probably five or six days between ill when i talked to them in with the interview was so occupy my mind a lot like i visualize me being in the locker room. They were nba playoff games going on. I will just trying to put myself in those situation. What would you do. How would you react sixers. Fans some looking at the sixers in watching his simmons. You'll just lose confidence. He's one of the boba points of our team. Aegis lost confidence. I'm like what would i say to him. What would i do to him all while you know looking at the looking at this interview. That happened a few days in saying how to prepare for this now on ask must like how do you prepare like. I really don't know anything about coached in a mba. But is what i do know. I know people. I know my separation. Coaching has a lot to do with my interaction in me forge relationships with people. So that's what. I'm willing to expand on the accident only is accident. Only you you you can learn it. I i think i have things. That coaches can't learn at this point of their careers. Because it is the very thing that i built my career on. Which is the person in figuring out how to deal with.

"I miss the big part of it And it's been a big part of my life. So i understand that part of it but i know that there's only a certain percentage of women that's gonna be able to be pros so i have to balance you know and i. I am guilty of being a coach that coaches from the worst case scenario worst-case i tried to put our plays in a worst case scenario whether life or whether it's on the court because anything outside of that creates advantages so they can fight their way out of being in the worst situation. Everything else is going to be quite simple to navigate okay. Let's take a quick break right here to talk about wild alaskan company gonna love this company. I'm so stoked to introduce them to you. So it's basically fish and so fish is is so important in your diet. You know that you know. It's just a great way to get a mega threes protein but sometimes a seafood counter. It's a little overwhelming. Which fish tastes the best. What type of cut can you be. sure about. The quality of the cut. Is it far more fresh and can be certain that the label is right. I don't know. Maybe i'm just in my head about it. But the quality of food really matters. And that's why.

"So let's just have no expectations of georgia georgia fans. You know what i mean. Let's just do a win. One for the gipper kind of approach to the season. And then maybe they'll surprise all of us and actually seal the deal this side we dunkin in case you were wondering where that optimism is coming from l. I'm curious a couple other things. You were pretty good athlete in your day. When yesterday morning arrived and college players are able to make money legally for the first time your thoughts and how do you think it's going so far. Yeah i mean. I was not surprised at all that there's a bunch of them that have already lined up. Maybe i was a little bit surprised about the kind of endorsements right. I wouldn't think of like a nineteen year old with a lighting company I had lava lamps. When i was eighteen. But that's fine I think it's about time it's interesting because many many many years ago covering sports Talking to these blue chip athletes the by the way played a sport at the biggest school. You can play this sport at right. And he was a blue chip guy and he was getting. You know a fifty dollars stipend a week. These athletes can't work because their job is being an athlete and securing billions of dollars for their school for the nc double a. For the boosters. They don't have the opportunity to work like other college. Kids did and it was eye opening to me. The struggle that he had to struggle of wanting to leave school early to go and help his family and he's sort of ended up doing that instead of saying in school and maybe growing a little bit more in his sport he left And so. I think it's long overdue. I think this idea that like athletes should just be so happy to get a college degree when that is not everyone's goal that's not everyone's not everyone grows up saying all i want in the world is a free education. Some people really need to be able to contribute to their family and their family depends on them. So simply saying we're gonna make all this money. You just need to be lucky to be here. That never was good enough. So i'm glad that these young people and let me caution. Paul your viewers your listeners. All of us old folks from scolding these kids. And i keep seeing like us. Old grandpa's being like google tax attorney like these kids are very well versed on business practices. They are so much more advanced than we were at their age. So give them the grace and understanding that they know what they're doing But i would say that it now becomes a new wrinkle paul when you bring these kids into schools outside of just adjusting to being an athlete and being away from home for the first time. Now you're going to really have to help them learn how to build their business acumen. So i hope that when some of these parents have these coaches sitting in their living rooms recruiting their kids. They're making sure they're leaning on the business aspect as well. Young people are googling tax attorney right now l. so i i'm still somewhat stupefied by your national championship prediction. I'm going to let that settle in. i don't want to. I don't want to upstage that with any any other more difficult questions but we are so glad that you are are here today. We were big fans as you know and thanks for making our day and making georgia fans all across the world thrilled to know that their biggest supporter has predicted. Natty for is lying is lying to them on the paul finebaum show. Paul call me after the clinton from game and we'll see if i'm still on this new on the supernova of positively. I've been there. I've been there the morning after with al after a bad loss in the studio sportscenter. It's not pretty. I don't mean you're not pretty. The scene is not pretty. Yeah it's disgusting. It's actually but that's what i'm saying. I just i have nothing left hall. So i'm just going to do this a little bit. We'll see what happens l. Thank you always good to see. Paul you got l. dunkin right here. Go ahead and alert of media breaking news l. Dunkin predicts a national championship for georgia. And we're holding her to it.

Nfl going into effect yesterday. Just before we get to some of the other issues. How are you and your reaction to what we've seen really in the last twenty four to thirty six hours. I'm doing great. I'm actually excited for the student. Athletes to capitalize on their name image and likeness. What what that entails is probably going to be a whole lot That will into the whole sanctity of the team. But i mean we. We're a pivoting sport and we. We need to pivot to help these young people out to navigate to this phase of their of their careers in. I'm all for helping them out that this process coach just in terms of of where we are in there so many stories out there and for the first time you know. Women's sports are getting a bite at the apple so to speak. I know that makes you happy. What what have you seen already. And and how do you deal with it as a coach. What i've seen is our players are super excited. They feel like they're in a position of of earning some money to help themselves their families and and they're excited Must like they are when they when they bounce a basketball This is a is pretty cool I'm helping our players navigate through findings representation obviously. I can't help them. Broke ready deals but i can't help. Bill organized their lives in a way in which There in front of things. I know the easiest thing is to quick thing. You wanna make a quick dollar but there are applications that That they're probably not thinking about that. Tweeted about a few of them. Which is you know the irs Which which also you know has to do with their their their parents who they are. They're pairs dependence. So they'll that will have implications as well as you know there are. There are people out there. That probably don't have their best interests at. He is so they have to be able to navigate through that room on finding an agent that they feel hit can help them. Just keep everything straight in an ordered because it's a time in which it changes every single day In the more organized. Lot better you at your this in the nfl pages to you. Were talking to coach dawn. Staley here at the beginning of the program coach. I wanted to talk about the bigger pictures with the issues with the nc double a. So many things came up during your tournament and we talked about that briefly I know you're you're taking that caused even higher to congress. Can you explain your biggest concerns and what you would like to see done. Our biggest concern instant to make sure that we don't have a black cloud over our incidentally tournament again And we wanna be assured that that that doesn't happen not feel like the only way that that will happen is if the the reports that come comes from the capital report our our public And we know that there's a such thing call attorney client privilege in the. Ncaa has hired hapless so they are inclined to of theirs in. We felt like it should be an open book. An opportunity for our sport to grow An opportunity for us to start a new So we all will feel good about making sure. Our student athletes are are feeling like they are on equal grounds when it comes to the biggest event of of of women's college basketball coach. How concerned are you with the leadership of the nc double a. After what you saw a couple of months ago at your tournament and have seen in in other cases as well the concern would be if nothing is going to get done if no changes are going to be made. That's that's my biggest concern Can leaders make a mistake absolutely I consider myself a leader era south carolina in. I do and say some things that i'm not always proud of But if i can correct it fairly quickly I think it it helps every all the equations involved. So i feel like if if things can drastically change the help. Women's basketball girl in a mandate issued in could It will be water under the bridge but we will but we need to get to that As the catlin report is revealed coach before we lose sight. I i know what what what is next for you. And that's getting ready to to move out of your home there and had had west on the way to to tokyo for the for the summer games.

All-star will play australia. And then we'll play nigeria in in vegas and then we take off for tokyo on the on the nineteenth so we got a week of preparation Long trip to tokyo and a bigger requested to win a seventh straight gold medal coach I know everything with sports has been in a in a in an upside down mode. Since last year your season got underway. Finally and the olympics were pushed in. There has been a lot of controversy. You can only be Be concerned about what you can't control. But but what are your concerns about the safety over there. We've heard a lot of crazy stories coming out of japan in relation dacoven. Well while for us. I just got had an opportunity to coach The america team in puerto rico where we were in a bubble like setting like we were for the nc double a. tournament and they actually was a team that contracted cove it. It had to be eliminated from the competition. And i think it's going to be very much like what we experienced in puerto rico but probably on a high level am. I afraid i'm always going to be afraid of vaccinated was still people who are vaccinated are contracting kovin But i'm gonna take precaution much like everybody else in our. Us delegation will do the same. And we're gonna play the games and hope that no one is impacted by colbert Who are participating in the in the games and in hopefully we can get onto being as as normal as possible as everybody's been impacted by by by visited in a. Hopefully this can be a distant memory in the future. We'll coach all the best over there. i think it's easy to say.

"So josh. He recently had a long conversation with basketball. Legend dawn. staley. I for those who might be less familiar with her career and background. Can you give us a quick snapshot of just what this woman has accomplished. Well i don't know if i can do it quickly. It's a long list. She was a two time. Ncwa player of the year. At virginia she went on to be named one of the wnba. Top fifteen players of all time daily off screen getting that bit rates jabber every time. She comes down with a line drive. She has a board time olympia and as the player time overall including her coaching career. Staley underneath will sell it. Twenty three game winning streak for the united states. She went directly into head. Coaching style was never an assistant coach. Her first job was the head coach at temple and she came to south carolina following a fairly long career temple and has taken south carolina from okay program to a national championship in two thousand seventeen. South carolina spectacular. Performance chappie you dug pretty deep into you. Don staley's background her early background. Can you tell us about her early days and her family growing up well. She grew up one a big family lot five kids. The matriarch of the family was estelle salia housekeeper. They grew up in a housing project in north philadelphia. Not easy but still staley was a disciplinarian in her daughter's words and everybody knows my mother. She's a headstrong woman. She's deceased now but she was known for her straight took. No nonsense backed down from nobody. You did not take her parking spot at the mall without a fight etc and down has carried that onto a much larger stage so just a very tight family and still somebody who's very much shaped by her mother and be the course of north philadelphia where she played against boys for most of her childhood and became not just very good but very tough. The neighborhood i grew up in you had to make sure that you had a reputation as being strong then back now from anybody was able to handle anything that was throwing your way and that has prepared me for any curve balls. Life can throw me north philly. Tough was the word her brother used. And they don't throw that around lightly a connection between the way she was raised where she grew up and the kind of basketball coach that she's become a where she was raised in where she grew up has affected every part of her. She is not a person who on some days. It's easy to play for our imagine especially early in her tenure at south carolina there were players who left the program high profile players. Who left the program. I would think don stay. They would tell you. She may not be for everybody because she is not going to suffer any foolishness. She will defend those players outside the program to the end of the earth. But that doesn't mean that she's going to give them an inch when they're in her. Jim staley has also become one of the more outspoken coaches and all of college basketball and josh recently wrote that quote staley. Mary's attributes that many have decided are incompatible. What did you mean by that. Well she's just fascinating to me because she is a black woman in the state of south carolina who has been pretty clear that she's not donald trump supporter. This is a state that voted for donald trump. So she's really walking a fine line there when she's got a lot of fans in a red state and she's pretty blue person but she's also shares a very strong christian faith with most south carolinians. She has been outspoken about police. Brutality inequality in the policing system at the same time. She's a special deputy at the rich county sheriff's office. She regularly rides armed with rich. County sheriff's deputies on their patrols. I do think that's relatable the coaches like some of the things that they do the de-escalate or tactics they use is relatable to deal with every day. Leon lot longtime sheriff of richland county said to me. If she wasn't a basketball coach she'd be a cop. She's just got that demeanor. Help people i mean. And that's what law enforcement should be about is about helping people and she wants to know people. She has a gift to gab. She can talk. Do you have to have good communications. Feel today law enforcement officer. She has that so you can't put her in a box and that's fascinating to me. How do you think she navigates. Straddling all of those worlds. She said to me that she is not stressed. I can't be anybody but me but at the same time you know. Most people here at south carolina in south carolina. Accept me for who. I am and i'm good with that and i'm good the ones that don't but i don't think there's a grand plan. I don't think she has an outline. I think she takes every interaction every moment and she deals with it very reflexively face what you could teach me something you can over me up to see things a little bit differently then. She's not a person who will not listen to somebody who has a different opinion. She says she craves hearing those different opinions. As long as the conversations can be respectful and stay within certain bounds. She wants that to happen. I can foresee a day where dawn staley is sitting in the middle of colonial life. Arena in the court at a podium and just taking questions from tons of people in the audience. Who don't agree with her on anything politically or socially. I think she would love that. I think she wants that stuff. But i don't think this is part of a bigger plan. I think she just deal with it from her. Core and then goes to the next day. Does the same

First of all great to have you on and it's always it's always a of our great pleasure to say hello to you. How are you. Hey how you doing i. I had to chuckle reading an article about you the other day about you speaking out and i'm thinking i can't believe dawn. Staley was speaking out about something. Can't well you you you. You gotta keep people on at times. Not all the time. At time i'll come back to the second. But i mean this is. This is the biggest time of the year for women's basketball the conference tournament. Then we move on to the ncwa. So i know you were probably a little disappointed about sunday. But how do you feel about your team. And and what's ahead. I mean. I feel real good. This team has been Dish really trying to find his identity. I know we. We won a lot of basketball games. And we probably lost a lot of basketball games from what we've done in the past But there they still have a thirst for learning and you know they they. They compete hard every day in practice. You know i it they they don't play from a place of you know what with me. They played from a place of what's next. How we how do we get better. What do we need to do. let's do it so we haven't played our best basketball to this day but i do feel like it's coming and i'm hoping you know we we show up show out on friday and it leaves the us continuing the wind throughout the weekend. You'll play tomorrow night at six against missouri alabama game winner. Certainly you're used to playing late into the conference tournament. How do you view this week. As opposed to next week in terms of getting ready for the tournament you've had such success. She won the national championship. You've had Great runs in the tournament. H- what am i know. You wanna win. That's obvious but how do you try to use the sec tournament to to help your team get ready. I'm a great simulator for Win or go home and if you go home earlier than Sunday afternoon And you have to your home and you're watching the two semi finals or the finals It it's a lonely place to be and it's not a very cool feeling and when we had to do it it was. It was an awful feeling. And you know i none of our players right now. You have have experienced that but from last year none of our younger players have experienced that in and we hope that they can keep that that innocence about being in a tournament setting and winning

"Vying for national championship the league is really really strong. As it always is. And finally, the the rest of the program, certainly dawn Staley has won titles in in women's Frank Martin took the program a couple of years ago to the men's final four, I'm interested in in your long term view, especially a of the the men's program at South Carolina. Well, you mentioned coats Martin's team, you know, he's been in the top four in the league three of the last four years. It only resulted in one postseason appearances, you know, we went in there that tape, but we lost. We lost some non conference games that really really hurt us in the scheduling part, but he's done. He's probably a little bit better job here than maybe he's been given credit, but certainly final four in in two thousand seventeen stood out and then coach Staley national champion, and she's been a part of six Sweet Sixteen in a row. She's got the number one cruising class in the country coming in here. We're we're in pretty good shape. I think we're poised and I'm up to mystic, but I think what poise to to get a little bit more tension nationally, maybe for a program standpoint than we ever had. I think we'll have we'll have sixteen of our Twenty-one sports in the postseason for this academic year. It's pretty it's pretty good progress than I like where we sit. I know that at the end of the day. It's you keep score. And it's about winning and how many you win, but we we're very good across the border presence broad success with our women's tennis program. Just winning the SEC.

"dawn staley" Discussed on Around the Rim

"Like, there's a lot more to it the recruiting and all of that. Yeah. But still like. Like, you're playing to count for something. And I and I think we have to reward the women that have carried the game on the professional side with having a place for them in having a pipeline for them to give back to the game. And you know, I'm I'm happy to see people like Tina Thomsen getting opportunities. Like, I mean there Charlotte Smith, you know, dawn Staley like I mean there there's some of our best coaches in the game. And so you know, that that's something that I'm glad you spoke on and initial spoke on so hopefully, we can start to move the needle. So how has it been how how have you been received coaching men professional basketball? Oh, I I want to start this off by saying that I love this this era, and is you know, and movement and women trying to, you know, secure more positions in male dominated societies. And I just wanna say like every woman is not made or built to have a position coaching men or have a position, you know, in business in a male dominated area. Like, it's not for everyone. I just wanna go ahead and say that for people out there. We'll why do you? Why did not for everyone? I just I and I'll say this too. It's not the it's the same for like men. It's not all men can't coach women like it's just like being bringing around women and being in like, a a female dominated arena. It's not it won't coincide with some men because you're saying there's a difference. 'cause there's a different there's a difference. And some men can't handle. Oh it and I feel like some me. It can't handle it being around a lot of women and coaching in that environment. I don't know on the business side too. But I just say like just because we're making these strides. I don't want women to think like is just so eat like there are some things that you have to sacrifice some things that you have to kind of, you know, look over to to stay in male dominated arenas. And most of it is just like politeness and things like guys are guys like you're working with me and your coaching in their guy, you know, at the end of the day, and I don't try to change guys. But at the same time somewhere would be like, oh that was so gross. What he's just did. And I have to see what's so gross about twenty five times day. You gotta they. No. So I so willy would like that, you know. And that's why I say that you know, some women. Oh, now, I cannot deal with this every day, you know. So that's why I say that. But like the most challenging thing for me is just when you use my voice and win not to use my voice. I think that's been the most challenging with the coaches staff and just being with the men, and it's easy for people to say, oh, you should just be dominant. You should be like the guys but at the same time. In basketball, and I treat this like when I played professional with the women. I think it's the same thing..
