"Anything's possible. I'm your host, Jack Russell over with Richard Digger Phelps and from 1971 to 1991. He was the head basketball coach at the University of Notre Dame. You're 29 years old. There's a legendary father Theodore Hesburgh hires you with Father Joyce. What did they tell you, Digger? Well, basically during the interview followed, Joyce eloped first, and we met in Detroit and the neutral site, and then he went back. And don't follow Ted. He's the guy we're gonna hire. So when I arrived another name they told me three things. Make sure that they graduate by going to class. And make sure we don't break any insane rules that make sure we're competitive, and I said What's being competitive? It's Edwin 18 games a year. So for years 20 years I was there They were big inspiration. And father husband, of course, is President. So like 1985 would file a choice. But the thing about father has for people don't realize that when I tell people I'm a disciple, Father, Esther. He was more than just the priest. Actually, 1957 President Eisenhower asked him to get three men from the South Three men from north including him and come up with the Civil Rights Act. And they went up to the land of lakes and Wisconsin, where Notre Dame has a little retreat place where the priest go up and just mellow out and pray and get spiritual guidance. So they went up there to six men, and they came up with the Civil Rights Act. They took it to the White House. They give it the President Eisenhower Eisenhower course When he left, he gave us the Kennedy and President Kennedy was gonna use it to run in the second term. To get re elected, but he got assassinated. So here comes LBJ. Well, things got done with LBJ in Congress because the 1964 to Civil Rights Act passed well to me. Father Hesburgh is the godfather of the Civil Rights Act, and he was more than just the President University of Notre Dame. What was interesting about his life beyond the campus, and I would say that we should go to pre She's restaurant here in town and get his famous Italian sauce. Out of Jeannie Alfredo because Alfredo was a restaurant and right near the Vatican in Rome, and he and Monsignor Montini, who became Cardinal Montini Became Pope Paul A six. They were great friends, and they used to go to eat Alfredo sauce at Alfredo's restaurant, and that's how that all started with him. What was interesting one night of creases? I said Father, Ted. Give me your starting five and he turned to me. He said you still coaching, and I said, I wanna know how I got to play against. If we're gonna play five on five, he started with Pope all of six, which, because of their friendship, and who they were and how they work. What was interesting when Pope all of six invited father Ted over to the Vatican? He was going to make him a karma, and he gets the green ring out and puts it on the table and father Ted, sitting on one side, the pope's on the other side and the post secretaries behind him. Another cardinal. While the 10 said no, thanks. I'm a priest. I'm going to be a priest on my life, and he kept trying to push them together. Well, after an hour, he takes a drink puts in his pocket. He leaves the office in the pope's secretary says, You stupid Makana. You don't know He tried to make you Carm. You said no. You know, I'm a priest because back a year later to see his buddy football, the six and the Cardinal says in the secretary. Where's the ring? Where is the ring? It's back in my office. He died with that ring. I saw Melanie, who was his administrative assistant. She showed me the ring several times. So he died with that pope's ring to make him a cardinal, but he never accepted to become a garden. Okay, number two. He says President Eisenhower anything great friends, not just during the Civil Rights Act, But even after that was written and done. They used to meet a Gettysburg where Eisenhower started. Camp David. And that became one of those historic sites, which they still use the president, but there are great friends through the whole lifestyle, and he and I became really, really close. And then, of course, third was Father, Joyce. Who ran the place when Hesburgh was never around. And father Joyce to Mei was one of those priests. Very smart business wise and what has word we're doing Fundraising Father Joyce made sure I went to the right components and make Notre Dame one of this today. Then I figure it's got to have a woman and I think it's gonna be John Crock because the crocks and has for became great friends, and they've given a lot of money to Notre Dame. No, it was his administrative assistant, Helen. I said Helen. Oh, yeah. She used to run my life in that office next to his office in the administration building And this feeble whole lady who were big, thick glasses and Fingertips were just beyond his old Underwood typewriter, and she'd be smoking her cigarette. And one day she says, Father Ted, do you have a speaker yet for commencement? And he says now and I'd only have appreciate from running the Columbus A master to seniors. She says. Why don't you ask your friend Eisenhower? Oh, he's too busy as president. He won't come out here for that. Did you ask him now? And she says, I think you ask. Well, Helen, why don't you ask? She types up a little letter sense of the White House with the Kerry comes back. A week later, she goes into Father Ted's office. A father Ted, There's ice letter. He's coming to speak of graduation. Did you get one of your priest? Friends from Rome yet the commandments a math and that turned out to be Pope Paul. The six So any number five. I said, whose number five. This is Frank Lady. I said you fired. Frankly, he's well. There's a story before that, when Father Jon Kavanaugh was present in late Fords Password was in the administration. Followed Johnson. I'm gonna make you dean of the faculty because of faculty are out of control. And by the way, I want you to take over football because Coach Leahy has those guys practicing when they should be in class. So, Father Ted read the Big 10 manual. And in the Big 10 manual, they would only travel with 35 players. Well, ladies traveling with 48 players, So Hesburgh said, No. You're just gonna travel with 35. So how's Berg's game freeze when they're going out to Seattle on a train for two days, the play the University of Washington and they have mass every morning on the train, But Leahy would not go and say hello to history. Got that, Max? So we're losing a halftime against Washington. And we come back and win the game in the second half and lay. He just rips the referees and rips the whole scene and they're cheating. And bye bye, blah. So we get negative press around the nation Headlines cry, baby noted and comes from behind to beat Washington the second half So all of a sudden they're back on campus and father Ted calls, Frank ladies. Come on, Frank. We're gonna take a walk around ST Mary's late father. I'm sorry. I know I should have said that. I'm sorry for the exposure, getting the negative press around the country. He said. Father get a lot of mail. He says Yes. What are you doing with it? He says. I just burned it. Burned it. Okay, so they're going around the lake. He still thinks he's getting fired. And father, Ted finally says, Look, Frank. From now on, you take a private plane a charter to go on these away games like the Southern cow. You don't have to take a train anymore. And so that was the starting five. And that's how it all ended up with coach Lady. Father, Ted Gut..

"But there were times we had to step in and defer and if we saw the coaches, cars pull up outside of homes Hall where we are lived on campus, we might have to go to the back door and Get into a conversation with the coaches for five or seven minutes himself to make sure they knew we were in. But there's some other guys coming in the other door like I mean, so that was that was That was a fun time for us. No question about that, Rick before I let you go, man. Just speak to us a little bit about the importance of that rope Arena crowd that we're just not seen. Obviously we call Cove. It would not seeing that this year. How important is that? Especially for young team. Oh, yes. Uh, I mean, that's what it's all about. That's why you come play from Kentucky because of you know the span support and When you go out there and you have 23,000 plus back and yes, there's no question. It's uh, it get you get you in the different mode than if you're walking into an empty gym. Like practice s O You know, I feel for all these.

A real college atmosphere, not only in Stadium, but even on campus what they're having to go through S so hopefully we'll get this behind us. And Angel change so everybody can get back and start watching these ballgames.

There's someone in Dunn's How How bad would it be for God to come in here in this situation come into the University of Kentucky and Not get to experience that and then all of a sudden they're thinking well, I move on to the next level that that's just Ah, huge part of Kentucky basketball that and being on campus and being around the other students that They will never be able to experience There's no question about it. And, uh, you know, it's uh It's something you don't really realize. When you're the airplane in Kentucky until you're done. And then you just see the excitement, uh, of the fans.

I hate it is a fan because I finally get to know who these guys aren't been all suddenly changes the new group and you have to really learn who they are. Oh, I think that's what I miss the most. Hey, I want to ask you guys one more question before we let you go each one of you your memories of playing Notre Dame. Well, it was always because I hit narrowed it down between Notre Dame in Kentucky. Really recruiting time and Digger Phelps, you know, spent a lot of time at my house. So every year that was a huge ball game for me, because I really wanted a whipping. And I will say, uh, last our senior year when we need them, Uh, digger actually gave my mom a safe Saint Christopher medal saying, you know your son and his teammates with us every time it was that I was gonna go about e. I was gonna say that, Dave, you know, it was bigger for Rick. Then it was from a night. I could tell you about playing against the Adrian Dantley. Oh, that's college for puke A and those kind of guys, But this is my best memory from playing Notre Dame. Okay, way. It was a tough game. We win the ballgame. We get on the bus to drive back to Lexington. Co. Charles Way Up front. We had a few guys. It's a long bus ride. By the way. Well, we won the game, so it was okay. We're having a good time. Everything was cool. There were a couple guys who and I know this is politically incorrect right now, but there were a couple of guys who chewed tobacco, okay? So there were a couple guys back there, too. And she's your players. These air players, these air players, so you know, I mean, they used to do that baseball players used to do it. I don't know. I've heard of guys like smoking, You know, having a heater something, but I've never heard of anybody Jewish. Okay, So we were back there and I was looking and I'm thinking, man.

"Ron digger. Phelps has joined us here on sports byline again. This book is out. Check it out. Father Ted Harrisburg. He coached me as the name of the book in the book. You talk about the remembrance of Father Ted at the funeral and the outpouring of support that it inspired did anything. Surprise you about that outpouring. Now you know they they just knew. I mean. That's the thing that surprised me. The most when we left the basilica after his funeral mass and walks in a cemetery which is tradition even though he was in a hearse and the the priests would follow her and then close family and then friends. What impressed me and I'm walking. Linda and I'm looking at because both sides of the road repacked bound. Maybe a half mile walk from the silica up to the cemetery where all the theresa buried onto campus and I said to myself and I looked at Linda I said. Aren't we coed? She looked at me when she knew why. Both sides roads were lined with women. Not Men here but the women stood out and that was father has burs you know vision of what Notre Dame should they and this is gone back two years ago. Two Thousand Fifteen the other thing. That was really amazing with the city. The number guys smoking cigars. They were walking alive because has always enjoy a good cigar especially given way to get him out of Cuba. But I think more importantly It was how he as a as a priest and knowing that you have mentioned for what this university should be and putting people in positions where they can make a difference in other people's lives once they leave. This university wasn't just being a lawyer doctor. A an accountant. Whatever it may in Ben for men and women it was more when you get in that community. Make a difference to have nuts because that's the mission of the SE's The Pre stent Notre Dame. But I looked at him as as one guy when I got motivated and what he did with a civil rights and at that time it was for African Americans at the end of this life that civil rights black. I think what's as for all cultures. All religions all colors skin. It's what people need and it's that they have the right to be someone that can be positive and have an opportunity to win in a game. My life and I decided to do this book when I'm doing for him in the Civil Rights Act as what I get as far as income from this book. I'm pointing a scholarship together in his name for someone who needs it That's coming to Notre Dame and I think that's how we'll get a download the other side step. I think this out. I was on the sentencing Ratchet Committee for twenty two years and a lot of things behind the scenes that they then realise from nineteen eighty-four. Two thousand six one of them was back in nineteen eighty eight when we had the hundredth anniversary of Newt Rodney and that's tamper-proof so I went to the White House to President Reagan. The gipper which he did from what he played in that movie New Rock Dame. He was the GIPPER and He certainly had this Nancy. Ten thousand people well founder. Has this Thursday. The twenty fifth. We'll be hired years old That would be as anniversary. So since. No one's around since School Jessica Out September first on the Friday before the football season at home. We're GONNA have that first day of issue by the Postal Service. They've announced it and he's getting a forever stamp And His name and honor which means whatever you pay for it now you use it forever and by by role one hundred they can use them five years from now but more importantly It's what he was as a priest and now here it is. I think he's got honorary degrees from one. Hundred fifty colleges universities around the world. That's the impact. He made an education so I decided one of his favorite students ever that came to Notre Dame was Condoleeza Rice. Who's right down the road? From from San Francisco at Stanford. She came and got a masters here because Father Esko Berg. Not Family knew her and wanted to hear it again. That opportunity what she did so she will be the main speaker on September first priority at the ACC cases center and to honor Father Pittsburgh forgetting forever digger. One of the things that I know is that he set the tone for that university for some thirty five years and when it comes to the Athletic Department because I've had a lot of interaction with them what has struck me is is that they're not just athletes They're trained to be good people as well. I know when I go do an interview Athlete was in a coat and tie. He would show up on time. He would answer questions. I mean it was a different atmosphere than what I have seen almost anywhere else. Tell me a little bit about that. Development of the people on that campus. Well you'd go out recruit young man and get him at the age of eighteen. And you've got four years for manhood. And what what Notre Dame believes in the student athlete? They walked free. I coach fifty six players and all fifty six guys in twenty years that night. Coach got their degrees include. Nate Newton dancing Gary Brokaw but went to summer school after junior years. I made him promise her mom's they connect in summer school To get their degree. They left that they're juniors lanee NBA in both of them. Then they got their degrees. But it's what's their life after Basketball Fan. Wilcox on seventy eight final fourteen. He's now athletic. Director at Florida State. when I look and see Scott Paddock. He's President Chicago speedway When I look at Jamir Jackson who was from Peoria Illinois he is now president of Nansen ratings when it comes to the CFO. He's the guy runs the whole operation all these guys. I'm gone and have a life after their sport after basketball my case and when you take a look at what came out stats about four years ago. Seventy percent in the NBA and NFL players. Seventy percent five years and retire bankrupt. Well that doesn't happen too. Because they get the grease and they know how to play the game of life after sporting donning spring. Still in all of us as coaches as well as what? These athletes no one. I got into Notre name one of the things that I always interested in is the fact that there's one single memory of father Hedberg. What would that be for you because you interacted with him in such a a multiple and I know that's a tough question? No I tend to book. I'm a cancer survivor. Twice prostate cancer and bladder cancer and each time I go get a blessing for Father Hesterberg before the surgery and what happened. Bladder cancer back in two thousand fourteen. I wanted him and I said file a Guinea blessing befriends surgery and he said to me digger have the courage. I wrote that down the picture of that standard. It's still my while the piece of paper and a picture of that is in the book on what he did to inspire me to okay. You can pray. But you're going to get this done and you're going to want it and That is to me the memory and most and when he was sick and dying that last week I went and saw him over the Holy Cross House aftermath one day for lunch and I said remember what you told me when I had my bladder cancer and he looked and I said well here. It is have the courage. Well we're GONNA win this. You're going to have the courage. They weren't going to win a nice held.

How are you? I'm fine. I'll tell you it so ironic I was so happy when mounting Williams was named the Phoenix Suns coach, and obviously he's got to stay with the seventy Sixers into the playoffs. And then there's another Notre Dame connection with the Phoenix Suns. And that's John Shumate who was a big star UCLA ending eighty eight winning streak of UCLA and Bill Walton back in seventy four and he's sort of like one of the scouts that goes out and looking for certain college players what they're going to draft. But Jones is the right guys general manager, but I'll say this about money Williams. His life's journeys been interesting. Yes, I recruited him. He was some Washington DC area. He played a freshman. And then all of a sudden the southbound area little heart from Mississippi's admits he still made the back like Shumate his south more year yet heart problem this decision, but he made to come back. But the thing is about Mountie he had a real tragedy a couple of years ago when he lost his wife and Oklahoma City car accident. Popovich took care volume down to San Antonio and money was there. And then of course, he ends up on the Sixers, but this break for me to see him when we talked the other night when he got the job on the phone.

And I guarantee you he's only get Phoenix's James Jones said yes, we're going to win. We're going to go in that room figure out what we need to make judgments but mounting.

He's always had this will to win so to speak and seeing certain players when you recruit them is not so much what their talent is but other characteristics where they play above their potential under pressure. And that's what he is. And he's got the cool personality won't see him being screaming and yelling, and I'm a little in Beijing other nights goes he's still saying, yes, sir to me. Yes. Coach.

"What are the more intriguing Sundays at we're going to see all year long like you'll have Super Bowl Sunday. Okay. You'll have of opening day, but to me not only because it's sink Patty's day. But just in the fact that we get everything right? Like, we get all of the teams that are going to be sitting there waiting to see if their name is called, and that's one of my favorite traditions. Are this time of year? And in fact, what I wanna do is the selection special has come into this, huge huge orbit, right? Where they'll have the live footage of the teams. But now over the last couple of years we've shown everybody's feelings get hurt. So we don't do it anymore. I want to bring that back. I want every single bubble team to have. All right. I want every single bubble team to have the cameras on them to see whether or not they get in. I wanna see the agony of defeat. The thrill of victory. Joy, Gordon joining us because you know, that right? Like, this is this is when you are nervous as a college basketball fan to find out when your name does or does not get called a little bit later today. Yeah. This is the good kind of nervous for some of the college coaches as opposed to some of the nervousness that somebody's college coaches are dealing with currently in the landscape. That's a conversation. We'll get into later on in the show. But Peter, no question. I mean, I've been on both sides of this thing is a former player for Notre Dame back in two thousand one or two thousand five hundred Mike brain the beginning of his career before he stands where he does now is a winningest coach in Notre Dame basketball history. Surpassing digger Phelps, but my freshman season we were a bubble team. But we did enough down the stretch at the end of the season where we're comfortably watching. We had family and friends at coach brace house. It was just a matter of what seed we'd get ultimately we were in eighth seed my next season. We had a fantastic year. Notre Dame soul. Ourselves ride in the top ten for the better part of the year. We had no worries on selection Sunday, we found ourselves as a five seat the Sweet Sixteen my junior and senior year though, or things that I'm still dealing with working through by mid to late thirties now because we were consecutive seasons as an upperclassman the last team left out. So we went into Sunday Peter watching hoping pray that there wouldn't be any bid Steelers down the stretch Emmys conference tournaments, and we'd find our way. And if you ask me today, which you are I'm still very upset that we were left out. And that's a feeling you never get over his we we talk about that. A lot George Burns here on the best. We ever we talk about that on on whether Lott, athletes and teams and players and even sports fans. They remember the highest moments. Are they remembered the lowest moments right always wonder if they remembered the sports scars, so. For these teams that are going to go through today or the fans that are are patiently waiting to see what the selection committee says later, do you remember your name being selected more that first year or your name not being selected both at junior and senior season. Well, I kind of look at it. As like, you know, everybody's, you know, for those who are who are now happily married and have kids and in that position. It's a different story. But to the person who's still single and a look back on their life their dating life, and why they stayed where they do today. Do they better remember, Peter the woman that broke their heart? And why then the position they are. Or do you think about all the great relationships that they had and they just didn't work out for whatever reason, you tend to think about the one that ended so badly like if I ever see her walking down the street him and tell her how much I hate her what she's done to me and vice versa for a woman who's been impacted by man to me. That's how it's been like when I think back in my college career, and I was lucky to achieve some some some some success measured. Depending on who you talk to. But was able to leave as the all time leading shot blocker Notre Dame history. Brag about it. Tom. Comes off relatively easily. But yeah, that's something. But when I look back on the most it could talk about for the next two hours. Is that feeling I felt we got left out of the tournament. It's a tough one. And you watch the emotion on some of these teams that no when they lose that last game in the conference tournament. They kind of see the writing on the wall Indiana is not going back to Bloomington excited for today. At seventeen and fifteen and team has twelve of thirteen games at a mid point in the season to justify deserve to be in over say a Belmont. And you look at Belmont. And what twenty six and five is we start breaking down the bracket here on this election, Sunday special, basically, Peter burns, Jordan cornet here. You can tweet us on the one eight hundred flowers dot com Twitter feed at Peter burns ESPN at Jordan coordinate because these are the teams right as much as we want to talk about it. We know and there'll be a lot of talk about which one of the number one who gets the number one seed, right? And there's probably L there might be three ACC teams that are going to be right on that on that number one bubble. But to me, it's the bubble that makes more sense. And I'll be honest with you. I I don't know anything about Belmont right favorite time of year. And I know you were doing this over not necessarily you. But people did this over at CBS. We do it at ESPN. You do it at Yahoo sports. We do it everywhere that everyone becomes a NC double a basketball expert for like three days or they read all the capsules. And when they're filling out there bracket, Belmont twenty six and five. I mean, they gotta be in. And then you're talking about Indiana, who what you're saying what twelve out of thirteen I pull for the the Belmont of the world. I mean, this is the week in which even television wants the Belmont of the world to get in. Because we're looking for the next Loyola Chicago, we want the next sister Jean we want the next Cinderella story. And and that's I think the purity of college basketball, and there's not a lot of things Jordan that we can actually say that are pure about this word of college basketball. So we sit here currently in twenty nineteen looking at not one not two, but probably three federal trials that are going to change everything in the way that we view this sport. Oh, yeah. No question. And that is the elephant in the room that is going to be something that looms large throughout coverage in March. Unfortunately for two people in me, and you the love this sport so much to understand that that is a part of this. It's gotta be. Taken with it. But you know, looking at a Belmont. It's so funny, man. Sweet. We've added a first four we've taken this thing. The Dayton we've increased a field, and there's talk to increase it, even more. But yet still here we are mired in the same issue. Do you take the the smaller schools who have the better win loss record but had been challenged? Or do we take the big dogs whose records are looming around five hundred but more impressive wins? Look belmont. They've beaten Murray state who's an attorney John Moran who I can't wait to watch. Yeah. They beat UCLA whose terrible terrible. But who has a very good, and they beat Lipscomb those wins at Belmont gonna hang their hat on. They've lost to Jacksonville state. They've lost to Green Bay and they didn't win their conference tournament. So if you're Indiana, you say we swept Michigan state we've done this. We've done that. How do you argue that what what's the right answer in your opinion? Peter. There's no doubt to me the right answer for the NCAA committee. Is you give me as many underdogs as possible? Now, we're gonna talk to Greg sheen who Shaheen who is was part of that into AA committee. Right. He was part of the whole executive director of basketball who put this this tournament together. He'll join us in about an hour and twenty because that's what I want the committee to do. Honestly wanna see them put every single underdog. That's available. And that's thinks the teams like Indiana thinks that teams like Alabama's stinks to the bigger squads. But I look at this year in RBIs. Intrigued about this NCAA tournament as I have been in. I don't know. Maybe maybe ten years Jordan, who's your team just for just for those out there wondering who who do you root for go Tigers LSU, I'm born and raised.

Tennessee, Kentucky Virginia Villanova ATI. All the great names. I got enough of the star power and the NC double late-term it already. Give me the Belmont. Gimme the next Loyola Chicago's of it.
